Thomas Sowell Thomas Sowell: The Media and the Mob

Jackie Gingrich Cushman Jackie Gingrich Cushman: Political Stereotyping

While we might like to think that voters research the issues, review the candidates, and then vote for the candidate that best reflects their views; the reality, based on political science research, is much different.

Victor Davis Hanson Victor Davis Hanson: Opportunists Fan the Flames of Racial Unrest

Violence following the recent fatal shooting of an unarmed robbery suspect in Ferguson, Missouri, has tragically followed a predictable script.

Derek Hunter Derek Hunter: Am I The Only One Who Doesn’t Care?

It seems like the world, or at least the media world, is obsessed with the happenings in Ferguson, Mo. No detail is too insignificant to speculate about, no matter how wild the speculation. I know more about it than I should, and I bet you do too.

Larry Elder Larry Elder: Ferguson: Not Even An O.J. Jury Would Convict Officer Wilson

Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson is neither Mark Fuhrman nor Barney Fife. Based on what has been presented so far in the media, not even an O.J. Simpson juror would find Wilson guilty of murder.

Jeff Jacoby Jeff Jacoby: Hillary's Delphic Politics

If Hillary Clinton doesn't become the next president of the United States, perhaps she could set up as the next Oracle of Delphi.

If anything in life is certain it is this: When Obama wages war on anything, including war, we ought to expect a mass casualty event at this point.

Michael Reagan Michael Reagan: Over-Covering Ferguson

Why have the protests and riots lasted so long in Ferguson?

Cal  Thomas Cal Thomas: ISIS 'A National Security Threat'

U.S. airstrikes that have helped Iraqi and Kurdish forces recapture a strategic dam and halt, at least temporarily, the advance of ISIS terrorists on the Kurdish capital of Erbil are a welcome pushback against a relentless enemy that for a time seemed invincible.

Matthew Hennessey Matthew Hennessey: What Roll Do We Want For Our Police Officers?

We sure got here in a hurry. Just a few short weeks ago the nation was cheering the U.S. Mens National Soccer Team during their improbable run at the World Cup in Brazil. The political parties we were debating what to do about the sudden flood of illegal teenage migrants at our southern border. Most of us had never heard of the crime of selling loose cigarettes on New York City streets. Most of us couldnt find Ferguson, Missouri on a map.

Debra J. Saunders Debra J. Saunders: LA's Idea of Using a Lottery to Entice Voters Is a Stinker

Austin Bay Austin Bay: The Allies Invade Southern France: Seaports and a Race up the Rhone

Winston Churchill disparaged Operation Anvil-Dragoon, the Aug. 15, 1944 Allied "second D-Day" invasion of Southern France. Churchill joked that he was "dragooned" into an unnecessary invasion. D-Day, June 6th, had breached Fortress Europe. A French Riviera "pincer" was folly.

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: Two for one

Lauren Bacall's death at 89 got front-page coverage complete with picture in the New York Times, and it deserved to. Like so many American images and voices in our vast celluloid memory bank, she may have been more familiar than famous -- if the definition of fame has something to do with greatness rather than just exposure. But familiar she definitely was, at least to the generation of American moviegoers who grew up with movies the way their grandchildren now grow up with the Internet.

Rebecca Hagelin Rebecca Hagelin: Culture Challenge of the Week: Taking Things for Granted

We live in a culture that is all about me, me, me. Take a stroll through the mall on any given day and you will see children whining when they cant have the latest toy or video game, while discouraged parents shrug their shoulders and give in. Hang around any retail store and it may seem like the Gimme" generation is running the show. You hear an I want this and the register replies with a hearty ch-ching!"

Emmett Tyrrell Emmett Tyrrell: Marijuana vs. Scotch and a Low IQ

Turning once again to what the sociologists call "coping mechanisms": There is marijuana and then there is alcohol. They are increasingly the civilized options.

Steve Chapman Steve Chapman: What About 'Black-on-Black Crime'?

The shooting of Michael Brown and its turbulent aftermath have renewed an old question: Why does the black community raise a ruckus when a white person kills a black person, which is rare, but not when a black person kills a black person, which is far less rare?

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: The Medicare Money Pit of Waste, Fraud, and Abuse

Wow. Billions of dollars of fraud and the government to this day still cant figure out the level of theft. This sounds about right.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Election Jackpot Scratch and Sniff

Turnout in some Los Angeles elections is so low that LA Considers Giving Citizens Lottery Tickets if they Vote.

Bill Tatro Bill Tatro: It's Our Turn

How could we be so successful at turning over governments? Simple! Our military might and, perhaps more important, our checkbook. Being the reserve currency has its privileges.

Nick Sorrentino Nick Sorrentino: The 35.4 Percent of the United States : 109,631,000 on Welfare

This is a frustrating statistic to read. When so many rely upon the state for their well being - when getting taxpayer funded aid means the difference between having a full stomach and having an empty one - it is very hard to make the case to someone that government must be smaller.

How secret trysts helped push three troubled nations into one horrible war

Bob Goldman Bob Goldman: The Bad Jobs of Tomorrow, Today

John Kass John Kass: Chicago's Little League Team Worth Watching

America tells stories to itself in images, funny ones, sad ones, selfies we send out over our phones with snarky comments. But lately, the ones that get the most traction are the angry ones. They seize us like hands around our throats. And that's what the images from Ferguson, Mo., feel like to me, hands to the throat. But there's another image I saw last week. This one I like, and it doesn't come from Missouri.

Tom Borelli Tom Borelli: CDC Ebola Failure Will Add to Public Distrust of Government

Its no wonder Americans dont trust the government. Sandwiched between ideological zealots at the IRS and the EPA and massive corruption at the Veterans Administration, the public is being exposed to the consequences of bureaucracies running wild.

Jerry Newcombe Jerry Newcombe: A Christian Response to Ferguson

Here we are 51 years to the month after Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. articulated his vision for a color-blind society, and some things seem to be worse. While America elected and re-elected the first African-American president, something virtually unimaginable in Dr. Kings time, the incident in Ferguson shows that deep divides remain.

Michelle Malkin Michelle Malkin: The Ferguson Feeding Frenzy

The most poisonous "-ism" now infecting Ferguson, Missouri, is not virulent racism. It's viral narcissism.
