            by Jordan Cope  When it comes to social media influencers, many might recognize Michelle Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio, Roger Federer, and Billy Joel. But what about the superstar Islamist clerics — Mohamad Al Arefe, A’id Al Qarnee, Salman Al Odah, and Othman Al Khamis — whose track records range from incitement of jihad, country-entry bans, and displays of bigotry? Not only do...
    Campaign watch: Biden-Harris Is a Stinker Any presidential running mate “should first and foremost ‘do no harm,’ ” Republican consultant Bradley A. Blakeman observes at FoxNews.com, yet Joe Biden’s pick, Kamala Harris, “will harm both” Biden’s election odds and “his chances of successfully governing” if elected. “She has zero foreign-policy experience and no economic gravitas,” for...
            by Doug Bader and Norbert Michel  If you’re not convinced that Americans have been sold a distorted view of COVID-19 risk, consider Major League Baseball. Most of the league’s players are among the 46 million Americans between ages 25 and 34. A total of 992 people in this age group have died with COVID-19,...

    From the right: How Don Outfoxed Dems “Democrats thought they had Republicans cornered” in the latest COVID-relief package fight, snarks Marc A. Thiessen at The Washington Post.

    The four monumental bas-reliefs of a woman’s back that Henri Matisse finished between 1909 and 1930 are among the most enigmatic sculptures of the 20th century.

            by Liz Peek Furious that Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were blocking a bill to help Americans through the COVID-19 crisis, President Trump stepped up and got the job done, all by himself. It Was a Beautiful Thing to Behold Over the weekend, Trump issued four executive...
            by Barry Brownstein  Scurvy, we all know, is a disease caused by a vitamin C deficiency. It took almost 200 years from the time a “lemon juice” cure for scurvy was discovered until it was promoted by the British government. Some think the mental biases that caused the needless deaths...
    Urban beat: Cities Might Not Bounce Back Major centers such as New York, San Francisco and Seattle — which have “lost a larger percentage of jobs” and seen “wealthy people fleeing” because of the lockdowns and disorder — can’t be complacent about that “exodus,” advises Bloomberg Opinion’s Noah Smith: “Cities don’t always grow.” New York...
            by Terry Bowman  Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to think he can coast to victory by posing as a moderate while adopting the most extreme policy platform of any major-party candidate in American history. The thing is, the American people just aren’t that stupid — we know a huckster...
            by Doug Bandow  COVID-19 has delivered an occasional silver lining in the economic clouds troubling America. The most obvious is to highlight stupid regulations imposed to benefit special interests and their political enablers. Including members of the legal monopoly. Professional regulation is supposed to protect the public. However, even doctors...
            by Malcolm Pollack  It’s obvious to all, at this point, that factional division is reaching a breaking point in America. Like a pair of locked-together tectonic plates pulling slowly in opposite directions, the strain has been increasing for a long time now – and when seismic ruptures finally occur, they...
              Our friend Morning in Nevada PAC President Adam Laxalt has alerted us to the details of the “election reform” measure Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and the Democrat-controlled legislature rushed through in an emergency special session — on a party-line vote, in just a 48-hour period over the weekend,...
            by Roger Kimball  Those things with which we are most familiar are often hardest to see. This is perhaps particularly true of such fraught subjects as politics.

    Eye on the economic system: Don Rescues US  — Once more “President Trump confirmed as soon as once more Saturday that he locations America and the American individuals first when” he used his government powers to finish the congressional gridlock over the following coronavirus reduction package deal, cheers Andy Puzder at FoxNews.com. “Democrats have made...
    Eye on the economy: Don Rescues US  — Again “President Trump showed once again Saturday that he places America and the American people first when” he used his executive powers to end the congressional gridlock over the next coronavirus relief package, cheers Andy Puzder at FoxNews.com. “Democrats have made it increasingly obvious that they view the...
            by Daniel J. Mitchell  The coronavirus has been horrible news, most obviously because of death and suffering. But the disease has also wreaked havoc with the economy and given politicians an excuse to push counterproductive policies.

            by Anders Koskinen  Joe Biden is continuing to suffer from a terrible case of foot-in-mouth disease when it comes to discussing black Americans and their politics. The tone-deaf former vice president recently claimed “that the Latino community is ‘incredibly diverse,’ ‘unlike’ the black community.” “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions,...
            by Conrad Black  The Democrats became so addicted to their need for President Trump to be permanently under a cloud of criminal suspicion for their media lackeys to endlessly celebrate, that their present discomfort is considerable as the weight of prosecutorial scrutiny shifts to another—that is, to their—foot. Former Acting...
            by Robert Romano  The U.S. economy produced between 1.35 million and 1.8 million jobs the month of July, bringing the total number of jobs created since April when labor markets bottomed with the federal and state governments in lockdown to combat the Chinese coronavirus to between 9.3 million and 10 million.

            by Ned Ryun  If you haven’t gotten your fill of “cancel culture” yet, tell you what: I have over 80 companies you can cancel right now. Nike, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google among others should be facing the wrath of the social justice warriors, but I’ve barely heard a peep from them...
            by Robert Romano  It is former Vice President Joe Biden, and not President Donald Trump, who has a political problem due to ongoing riots in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd as public backlash against the political left has begun seeping into public attitudes concerning the race for...
            by Meshawn Maddock  America’s working families need allies, not obstacles. As a mother and a Michigan small business owner, I vividly recall the anemic “recovery” we experienced under the Obama-Biden administration, which increased regulatory costs to a historic high of nearly $2 trillion a year — a tab paid in large part...

    2020 watch: Beware a 2000-Recount Repeat “As a survivor of the 2000 recount,” former George W. Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer at Fox News warns of a repeat.

            by John Fredericks     Twitter has twice subjected the American people to the ignominy of seeing their own elected president censored for supposedly “glorifying violence.”   Legacy journalists, meanwhile, continue to brazenly promote violence without a hint of consequence.  For the Silicon Valley Tech giants who now control the social...
            by Robert Romano   The fifth-generation F-35 stealth fighter jet by Lockheed Martin has been in development since the 1990s, one of the most expensive military systems ever at a cost of about $80 million per plane, after all these years is still dependent on global supply chains including certain...
            by George Rasley  If you want a look at the dystopian Hell that Democrats will create in your city or town should they win the 2020 election look no further than what has happened in Minneapolis since the city council and Mayor gave the city over to the Far Left...
    Left watch: Woke Women Are the New Enemy “Torch-carrying neo-Nazis in Charlottesville were the face of white ­supremacy in 2017,” recalls RealClearPolitics’ J. Peder Zane, but in 2020, it’s “Nice White Parents” — the title of a New York Times-distributed podcast that argues that it’s because this group won’t send their kids to “truly integrated...
            by Adam Mill  This summer has answered the question, “why would somebody ever need an AR-15 or a high-capacity magazine?” As the Left continues to advocate for ending private ownership of military-style rifles, Americans can also see that powerful rifles are turning up in the possession of violent rioters and...
            by John Jaing  Two days after President Trump told reporters that he plans to ban TikTok from the United States, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested in an interview with Fox News that executive action may soon be taken against many other apps owned by Chinese firms.

            by Sheriff Mike Murphy  America stands at a great crossroads, resting between two divulging paths in its journey. One of these pathways leads toward lawlessness, the path’s air filled with the smell of fire and sight of ash –  the guaranteed end of this path is the destruction of not...
    Conservative: Blas Fiddles While Gotham Burns “New Yorkers sense the city, already reeling from the virus and the economic effects of the lockdown, is sinking into lawlessness,” warns National Review’s Kyle Smith.

    You can kneel during the national anthem and still love America and support police officers. You can stand during the national anthem and still believe black lives matter and police brutality is wrong. The primary narrative surrounding a peaceful protest should be the issue being protested, not an obsessive accounting of which individuals...
            by Anne Hendershott  If anyone was hoping that the return of the long-awaited Major League season would lift our spirits and bring us together, they had to be disappointed to learn that we are more divided than ever over the National Anthem kneeling debate. And although President Trump has not...
              In 2014 I ran for the United States Senate against well-known and established incumbent Lamar Alexander. Our underfunded and understaffed campaign garnered over 271,000 votes. The largest vote total of any statewide campaign to that point and not win an election. When we lost in 2014, I thought...
            by George Neumayr  Were Joe Biden given a Catholic rating, it would be zero. He not only stands against central moral teachings of the Church but has also promised to violate her religious freedom. Should he win, he would resume the persecution of the Little Sisters of the Poor and...
    Iconoclast: Repression Unbound The Harper’s magazine “Open Letter” many journalists, academics and others signed in opposition to cancel culture wasn’t mere whining, as critics charge — but rather, signer John McWhorter explains at Quillette, it was ­resistance to a “poisonous” judgmentalism that has “demoted, shunned and personally vilified” anyone who opposes liberal opinion. In this...
            by Barry Brownstein  In his 1989 farewell address, President Reagan asked the rhetorical question, “Are we doing a good enough job teaching our children what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world?” He followed up with the answer: Our spirit is back, but we haven’t reinstitutionalized...
            by Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman   Some evil people in the U.S. justice system are smiling right now. They got their wish.

            by Conrad Black  Apart from exposing once again the obtuseness, the moral bankruptcy, and the almost inexpressible hatred of the president that possesses the Democratic congressional leadership, Attorney General William Barr’s appearance at the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday clarified in a few minutes why the national interest requires the...
