CLIFF KINCAID — The comical publication the Onion ran a special volume, Homeland Insecurity, with the headline, "Run for Your Lives." I thought of that in the wake of the decision by hard-liners Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka to voluntarily leave the White House rather than continue to fight for rational pro-American policies in the Trump Administration against what has been called the Deep State....

PUBLIUS HULDAH — The danger of an Article V convention (which made James Madison "tremble," caused Alexander Hamilton "dread," and Chief Justice John Jay to say that another convention would impose an "extravagant risque") is this: the delegates to the convention can run away: instead of proposing amendments to our existing Constitution, they can write a completely new Constitution with a new -- and easier -- mode of ratification....

INTELLECTUAL TAKEOUT — [Last]spring, PBS has been airing a three-part documentary series, "School, Inc.", spotlighting some of the successes of education choice and free-market schooling options around the world. "School, Inc." is the brainchild of Andrew Coulson, an education policy researcher who left a successful career at Microsoft to answer a perplexing question: Why is it that innovation occurs frequently in other areas, but not in education?...

THE FREE BEACON — California Gov. Jerry Brown (D.) compared President Donald Trump supporters to ignorant cave dwellers at a climate change event Monday in New York City. "They're both kind of very similar. You should check out the derivation of 'Trump-ite' and 'troglodyte,' because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves," Brown said in remarks reported by Politico.... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Israel and the U.S. inaugurated the first American military base on Israeli soil on Monday, which will serve dozens of soldiers operating a missile defense system. The move comes at a time of growing Israeli concerns about archenemy Iran's development of long-range missiles. Together with the U.S., Israel has developed a multilayered system of defenses against everything from long-range guided missile attacks from Iran to crude rockets fired from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip....

LINDA GOUDSMIT — On Friday September 8, 2017 Governor Rick Scott issued a mandatory evacuation order for all residents of the barrier islands on the west coast of Florida where my husband and I live. We anxiously monitored the trajectory of Hurricane Irma and watched with horror as the colossal storm gathered strength and unexpectedly veered west. On Saturday morning we left everything behind and drove north toward safety.... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY — Never underestimate the power of water. My parents drilled this mantra into my head as a young girl growing up in San Antonio in an area prone to flash floods. I've lived in Houston for 30 years, and as such, have lived through several hurricanes. The worst (until Harvey) was Hurricane Ike in 2008. Ike had 145 mph sustained winds, and the eye of the storm passed right over us. I had never experienced anything like it.... (more)

JERRY NEWCOMBE — On January 22, 1973, with the bang of a gavel, seven men in Washington, D.C. consigned tens of millions of future Americans to an incredibly premature death. These Americans were condemned to die before they were born by what one dissenting justice, Byron White, called "an act of raw judicial power."... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN — Whenever Republicans released a healthcare proposal during their ill-fated attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare, the plan was immediately frisked by members of the policy community, who pointed out the myriad of problems raised by the various legislative drafts. It's only fair that we're just as brutally honest about the latest single-payer proposal from socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Simply put: it is a complete joke.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — Despite the election of President Trump, which seemed to momentarily disrupt Democratic Party plans for total control, conservatives are losing politically. Trump's basic failure was the inability to seize control of the Pentagon and intelligence agencies away from Obama and his holdovers. Conservatives that Trump tried to put in were systematically purged. He's the ultimate target. It's unclear whether he can save himself.... (more)
