A Wartime President

All pretense ended Monday night, when President Barack Obama became Commander-in-Chief at a time of war. He has never been reluctant to kill terrorists with unmanned drones, but now the United States military is bombing ISIS targets inside Syria.

Confronting Evil, Reluctantly

A large majority of Americans want to see U.S. warplanes bomb the amorphous Islamic State, aka ISIS. If those savages wanted to get our attention by beheading young men and proudly showing the gruesome executions on the Internet, mission accomplished. They have our full attention, at least for the moment. But while we are generally…

If the victim is black and…

Horror, Lost Among the Chaos

Unless you're a true news junkie, you probably missed the outrageous story of the illegal alien who tried to sexually molest an infant. The crime took place in Florida last Saturday, but got scant media coverage. That's partly because there was so much other news – terrorists beheading children in Iraq, a Missouri town engulfed…
