Thank You, President Obama: I don’t care if the door hits you on the way out…

Derek Hunter,   This is it, the last full day of President Barack Obama’s tenure. Damn, it feels better than I thought it would. Forgive my smile as I type. As President Obama makes his way out the door like a drunk who has been tossed from a bar and is determined to smash every

Media Guilty of Double Standard on Terror Attacks

Jonah Goldberg, Here’s a paradox for you. Whenever there’s a terrorist attack, the immediate response from government officials and the media is: “Let’s not jump to conclusions.” Yet when there are breaking reports that Muslim or Arab Americans were allegedly victimized by bigots in some hate crime, the response is instant credulity, outrage and hand-wringing.

Brexit Voters And Trump Voters Are Fed Up With The Same Things

Congressman John R. Carter, The threat of an active shooter is increasingly real. Sadly, Central Texans and all Americans are all too familiar with responding to active shooters. The deadly attacks in Killeen, Fort Hood, Dallas, joined with the tragic events outside of Texas, including those in San Bernardino, Sandy Hook, and Virginia Tech, are

Not All US Muslim Soldiers Are Equal

Michelle Malkin, The ever-growing list of “soldiers of Allah” who embed themselves in the U.S. military. Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient Captain Humayun Khan died heroically. But his exceptional courage in Iraq and his Muslim father’s post-Democratic convention histrionics on TV do not erase the security threat posed by killer warriors of Allah infiltrating

U.S. Joint Base Andrews, the military facility near Washington that is home to the president’s plane, was briefly placed on lockdown on Thursday amid what turned out to be erroneous reports of a gunman at large during a pre-planned exercise to test responses to an active shooter. Base officials issued an all-clear message after about
