A gunman killed three people and injured nine others Friday at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. It was unclear what kind of weapon or weapons the shooter had with him. One witness said it was a shotgun, most news stories are going with “an AK-47-style” gun, police at one point said a “long gun,” …

After shooting down a Russian military plane for no good reason, Turkey seems to be getting off pretty lightly. Or perhaps Russian President Vladimir Putin is just getting warmed up. Putin called on Russians to boycott Turkish tomatoes and supermarkets, saying the money spent on them goes to buy Turkish missiles. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev …

I beg to differ with President Obama. Climate change is not the most serious threat faced by this planet. He is. Let me back up a bit. We all know that Obama is touring the world this week touting climate change because he wants to finally pay back all the wealthy people who have financed …

It’s not news that President Obama and the people in his Administration are out of touch, but every once in a while, they will exceed even the most cynical expectations. The Paris climate change summit evidently is one of those moments. On Sunday, Obama said that the climate change summit would send a message to the …

Donald Trump has been a phenomenon during this presidential campaign so far. His outspoken, no-holds-barred manner has attracted a lot of fans who see in him something we don’t often see in politicians: blunt honesty. It’s been my feeling all along while watching the Trump train gather steam that it will be those same qualities …

Vox Media, one of those left-wing Silicon Valley companies that make way too much money, has pushed the envelope once again on employee conduct with its new ban on “microaggressions” and “mansplaining.” If you have no idea what those terms mean, you’re clearly behind the curve and hopelessly mired in standard English. You see what …

Proof that liberalism is a form of congenital idiocy: The Violence Policy Center — if you couldn’t guess, an anti-Second Amendment group — in the wake of the Paris massacre is calling for a total ban on “assault weapons,” including “assault pistols” and “assault shotguns.” Don’t worry, you’ll still be allowed to keep your assault …

The White House wants you to believe after the Paris massacres that it can safely bring thousands of Muslim refugees into this country by carefully “vetting” each one to be sure they aren’t terrorists. Considering that vetting of people from foreign countries where they barely keep records mostly relies on self-filled forms and the off …

In France, they get it now. The French government has shut the borders and declared a state of emergency. Protesters have taken to the streets, drowning out calls for “unity” with calls for removal of all Islamists from the country. French law enforcement is searching for anyone connected with the Paris massacre or who might …

French officials estimate at least 129 people were killed in last week’s coordinated terrorist attacks by ISIS in Paris. An additional 350-plus were wounded, and nearly 100 of those are in critical condition. Within hours of the French attacks, al-Shabaab, an al-Qaida offshoot, killed at least 147 people at a university in Kenya, according to …

The specifics couldn’t have been guessed, but nobody can say the events that occurred yesterday in Paris weren’t seen coming, and seen a long way off. Today, the non-Muslim world’s prayers should be with Paris and the families of the dead. The massacre of at least 153 people and wounding of so many more in a …

The Republican Party leadership must be having a lot of trouble sleeping these days. With two political outsiders — Donald Trump and Ben Carson — leading the presidential pack by tapping into voters’ justified anger at the GOP, these are some desperate times, at least according to the Washington Post. One of the surest signs …
