ANDREW C. MCCARTHY Such unlucky timing for Senator Dick Durbin: He insisted on hearing today to push forward President Obama's reckless project to close the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. Apparently, al-Qaeda did not get the memo: The jihadist network has conducted bombing raids at two Iraqi prisons -- including Abu Ghraib -- in a successful plot to break out hundreds of terrorists....

NEWSMAX CNN's Wolf Blitzer pressed him to retract his words, but Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, said he stood by his statement to Newsmax TV that for every valedictorian who came across the border illegally, there are 100 children smuggling drugs.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The start of the National Security Agency's rise in power can be traced to the first years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when new laws, secret presidential orders and lots of cash emboldened it to sweep up billions of communications.... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH I don't know what's more threatening to liberty and privacy -- the National Security Agency's monstrous eavesdropping efforts and satellite surveillance on American citizens or the plans for massive expansion by local, state and federal governments of spying on us from the air with drones....

THE HILL ObamaCare is at the center of a rapidly escalating fight that threatens to shut the government down this fall. Senate Republicans, including two members of the leadership, are coalescing around a proposal to block any government funding resolution that includes money for the implementation of the 2010 Affordable Care Act....

WASHINGTON TIMES Delaware state officials have told Congress that they likely destroyed the computer records that would show when and how often they accessed Christine O'Donnell's personal tax records and acknowledged that a newspaper article was used as the sole justification for snooping into the former GOP Senate candidate's tax history....

MICHELLE MALKIN The most powerful female Democrat on Capitol Hill has turned her back on women. Again. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, entrenched 13-term incumbent, refuses to say whether creepster San Diego mayor Bob Filner should resign amid an avalanche of longstanding sexual-harassment allegations, staff resignations, and now a lawsuit....

ALAN KEYES Watching events unfold in the wake of the Zimmerman trial's not guilty verdict, I find it obvious once again that the Obama wing of the elitist faction has no use for the U.S. Constitution except when its provisions can be perverted into a weapon deployed against the rights and righteous liberty of the American people...

July 22, 2013
ANDREW C. MCCARTHY The first thing to remember is that, with the Obama administration, there are no coincidences. The attorney general of the United States is engaged in a shocking extrajudicial publicity campaign. Eric Holder is prosecuting George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion because he knows he wouldn't have a prayer of convicting him in a court of law.... (more)


July 22, 2013
LLOYD MARCUS Sincere well-intentioned Americans are asking, "What must we do to heal the racial divide following the Zimmerman trial?" What my naive fellow Americans do not comprehend is that the Democratic party and the mainstream media are heavily invested in keeping racial tension alive.... (more)

JOHN FUND President Obama has had a poor record of job creation, but at least one small economic sector is doing well: community organizing. The Department of Health and Human Services is about to hire an army of "patient navigators" to inform Americans about the subsidized insurance promised by Obamacare and assist them in enrolling....

July 22, 2013
JOSEPH FARAH When Attorney General Eric Holder ordered the Sanford, Fla., police department to hold on to all the evidence in George Zimmerman's trial following his acquittal on murder and manslaughter charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, he was doing more than signaling the U.S. Justice Department plans to subject the neighborhood watch captain to double jeopardy in violation of the Constitution....

July 22, 2013
WALL STREET JOURNAL On Jan. 4 of last year, a local narcotics strike force conducted a raid on the Ogden, Utah, home of Matthew David Stewart at 8:40 p.m. The 12 officers were acting on a tip from Mr. Stewart's former girlfriend, who said that he was growing marijuana in his basement. Mr. Stewart awoke, naked, to the sound of a battering ram taking down his door. Thinking that he was being invaded by criminals, as he later claimed, he grabbed his 9-millimeter Beretta pistol....

MCCLATCHY Courts cannot second-guess drone strikes that kill U.S. citizens overseas, an Obama administration lawyer argued Friday.

MICHELLE MALKIN Yes, there's a war on women in America. But it's not the phony "war" that tampon-hurling feminists are always shrieking about -- as they did last week in Texas to protest tougher regulations on dangerous late-term abortion clinics. No, I'm talking about a real war on women waged by Saudi royals and elites who've imported human trafficking and abuse of domestic workers onto U.S. soil.... (more)

BREITBART Cosby, an outspoken voice on cultural issues, says the recent trial did not prove that Zimmerman had racist motives at any point during his confrontation with Martin. That means race shouldn't be a part of the conversation regarding the case.... (more)
