Michelle Malkin Michelle Malkin: The Jihadi Serial Killer no One's Talking About

For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer ran loose across the country. At least four innocent men died this spring and summer as acts of "vengeance" on behalf of aggrieved Muslims, the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed. Have you heard about this horror? Probably not.

Mark Davis Mark Davis: From Ferguson To Fallujah, The Death of Accountability

A young black man dies from a police gunshot, and a community bursts into presumptuous anger as if it knows racism is afoot.

Erick Erickson Erick Erickson: Losing a Sense of Community

There are no winners in Ferguson. There is only tragedy. Any justice now gotten, if at all, will be a tainted justice that does not heal, but further divides. The gleefulness of many on both sides circling like vultures should turn stomachs, not wallets and voter registration numbers.

Michael Barone Michael Barone: Not Nearly as Daunting as the 1960s Riots

Continued violence in Ferguson, Missouri, brings back memories of the urban riots of the 1960s. Sadly, nearly 50 years later we're still facing rioting by blacks purportedly protesting police behavior. But there are some differences of varying significance between the riots of the 1960s and Ferguson today.

Brent Bozell Brent Bozell: Obama Satire? Still Objectionable

The amount of mockery presidents endure usually corresponds with their polling. It applies to Republicans (Nixon, Bush, Bush), but sometimes also to Democrats (Carter).

Jonah Goldberg Jonah Goldberg: Obama's Small-Screen Worldview

Does the president think the world is a TV show?

Mike Adams Mike Adams: Welcome to Public Relations 101

It takes a lot to make me angry. But one thing that will do it every time is the occasional college administrator who hides behind a university spokesperson or public relations firm. Last week, Bryan College made the serious mistake of attempting to contact me through a hired public relations firm. After Bryans public relations people contacted me, I immediately turned the tables on President Livesay and responded with a series of pointed questions.

David Limbaugh David Limbaugh: War on Christianity Still Alive and Well in America

Many reject the notion that a good segment of our popular culture and of our political class is at war with Christianity. But this is a real war -- not a phony one, such as the left's manufactured "war on women."

Mona Charen Mona Charen: Obama and 'History'

It's a theme this president sounded in his first inaugural address, warning that "those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent" are "on the wrong side of history." He returned to it in his remarks (bracketed by golf outings) about the horrific murder of James Foley.

Pat Buchanan Pat Buchanan: Race-Based Justice

Among the demands of the "protesters" in Ferguson is that the investigation and prosecution of police officer Darren Wilson be taken away from St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch.

John Hanlon John Hanlon: Faith Plays a Key Role in 'When the Game Stands Tall'

While other football dramas would culminate with a high school football teams winning streak that lasts 151 games, this movie begins with that. As the movie opens, that historic winning streak is alive and well for Californias De La Salle high school team. The team and the town feel invincible and its only after the streak ends that they are forced to confront their own personal failings.

Suzanne Fields Suzanne Fields: 'Death Be Not Proud'

Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall join this year's roster of celebrity deaths. Their names and fame preoccupy us in public mourning, though most of us were no closer to them in life than to a movie or television screen. Mourning differs in different times, but how we experience the tears and the reminiscences tells us a lot about ourselves.

David Harsanyi David Harsanyi: Are Republicans Abandoning the Obamacare Issue? Doubtful

In a bit of dubious cherry-picking, a new Bloomberg article concludes that the Affordable Care Act is losing its effectiveness as a political issue for Republicans and is diminishing as a major issue. How do we know the end is near-ish? Well, so many Americans are "benefiting from the law," theorizes Heidi Przybyla, that political ads are simply not doing the job anymore.

Humberto Fontova Humberto Fontova: Offshore Oil Exploration Approved for East Coast—Greenies Freak

After decades of paranoid hemming and hawing, last month the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management finally approved oil exploration in Federal waters along the Atlantic coast from Delaware to Florida.

Diana West Diana West: Eric Holder: Leading the Rush to Judgment

One thing an old Ivy League revolutionary can't stand is people noticing that he represents the Establishment. That he embodies the System to a point where he can make it stop and make it go. He will go to great lengths to convince himself, if not others, this is not so.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. Harry R. Jackson, Jr.: Untapping the Wells of American

While the United States remains the wealthiest nation in the worldfirst by Gross Domestic Product, seventh by average incomemany Americans have been struggling financially in recent years.

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: Obama Leading from Behind in the War Against Islamic State Terrorism

There can be only one response to the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State terrorists. We must hunt them down and kill them. President Obama said as much in his brief remarks in the wake of the terrorists' grisly video that showed Foley's execution by a masked jihadist who spoke with a British accent and is believed to be a British citizen.

Michael Brown Michael Brown: Five Obvious Lessons From Ferguson, MO

Like many Americans, I have carefully followed the news from Ferguson, MO involving the tragic shooting of an 18-year-old African American, with the notable exception that he carries my name. And so, every day, Im reading about the shooting of Michael Brown and the death of Michael Brown and the autopsy of Michael Brown, all of which reminds me of the very real loss of life involved.

Brian and Garrett Fahy Brian and Garrett Fahy: The Islamic State of the World

The American people have learned that once again, they were not told the truth. We were told that by the fall of 2012, Al Qaeda was purportedly on the run, finished off by a diplomacy that exchanged bullets for talking points, kinetic warfare for bridge-building conciliation. None of it was true. These talking points masked the reality that the vacuum created by Americas withdrawal was quickly being filled by resurgent Islamists. Now, it seems, modernity is on the run, being terrorized by adherents to a violent ideology buried in the sands of centuries past. The Islamic State (ISIS) is thriving and growing in the newest episode of the perpetual clash of civilizations.

Gayle Trotter Gayle Trotter: As the world burns: Obama’s “stupid stuff” foreign policy and its disastrous effects

Obamas foreign policy has become noteworthy for a remarkable series of bad decisions, miscalculations, and fecklessness -- tragically ironic for an administration whose foreign policy mantra is dont do stupid stuff.

Charles Payne Charles Payne: Poor Public Schools are Costing Us in Many Ways

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released its report, Expenditures on Children by Families, and the cost of raising a child is now up to $245,000- not including the cost of college. The most expensive part of raising children is keeping a roof over their heads and food in their bellies...

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Spain Robs the Pension System to Pay its Bills

The "recovery" news in Spain keeps piling up. Via translation from El Economista, Government has already taken 37% of the total 'pensions piggy bank'. If extractions continue at the current rate, the fund would be exhausted in 4 years.

Jack Kerwick Jack Kerwick: A Tale of Two Fatal Police Shootings

As if the happenings in Ferguson, Missouri arent bad enough, now we have the situation in Salt Lake City, Utah with which to contend.

Larry Kelley Larry Kelley: Create a New Kurdistan and Destabilize Iran (Part II)

By 207 B.C., Rome and its allies on the Italian peninsula had lost approximately 100,000 soldiers to the invading armies of the great Carthaginian general, Hannibal. To make matters more desperate, the Carthaginians were in the final stages of securing massive reinforcements from Phillip V of Macedon. That year the Roman Senate sent a secret group of provocateurs to Northern Greece who started violent insurrections among Phillips disaffected subject peoples to his south. The Macedonian armies never sailed and for next 600 years the course of western civilization would be charted by Rome.

Doug Fabian Doug Fabian: Why Russian Small Caps are a Contrarian Pick

Political  Calculations Political Calculations: The Real Trends of Employment in this "Recovery"

Ilya Shapiro Ilya Shapiro: Congress Gets Unlimited Power Because Slavery?

After engaging in a racially motivated street fight with a black man, Charles Cannon found himself facingas expectedassault charges and a sentencing enhancement to penalize him further under Texass hate crime law. You see, they had to make a federal case out of a fistfight to stop the return of slavery.

Ann Coulter Ann Coulter: No Facts, No Peace

It's important to remember that, in police shooting cases like the one in Ferguson, Missouri, the initial facts are often wrong. You don't want to end up looking like Rich Lowry, National Review editor, whose March 23, 2012, column on the Trayvon Martin shooting was titled, "Al Sharpton Is Right."
