Contrary to the principles of American foreign policy of the last 70 years, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry tacitly invited Russia to "help" monitor things in the Middle East.

Larry Elder Larry Elder: The Rachel Dolezal-ation of the Oregon Killer

The media are often accused -- by the eternally offended crowd -- of intentionally "undermining the image of blacks." In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. The media lean over backwards to avoid any hint of anti-black sentiment. In the case of Mercer, a man with one black parent and one white parent, the narrative of mass-killers-are-almost-always-white caused the media great difficulty. But they tried their best.

Judge Andrew Napolitano Judge Andrew Napolitano: The Natural Right to Self-Defense

While the FBI continued to analyze the emails Hillary Clinton thought she deleted and her advisers pressed her to hire a Republican criminal defense attorney in Washington, a madman used a lawfully purchased handgun to kill a professor and eight students at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon.

Matt Towery Matt Towery: The Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy Against Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is in deep and potentially dire trouble. But that is not due to a "vast right-wing conspiracy," a blast from the past that she and her supporters are trying to resurrect.

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: Dangerous Road Ahead

There is a time, as Ecclesiastes reminds us, to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to be silent and a time to mend, a time for war and a time for peace ... and now is a time to stop denying that America, and the West in general, has suffered a strategic defeat.

Laura Hollis Laura Hollis: Willful Blindness

"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. / I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see."

George Will George Will: Impeach the IRS director

Look, wrote Lois Lerner, echoing Horace Greeley, my view is that Lincoln was our worst president not our best. He should [have] let the [S]outh go. We really do seem to have 2 totally different mindsets.

One of the secrets of successful magicians on stage is directing the audience's attention to something that is attractive or distracting, but irrelevant to what is actually being done. That is also the secret of successful political charlatans.
