Police stand guard as demonstrators, marking the one-year anniversary of the shooting of Michael Brown, protest along West Florrisant Street on August 10, 2015 in Ferguson, Missouri. Mare than 100 people were arrested today during protests in Ferguson and the St. Louis area. Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer on August 9, 2014. His death sparked months of sometimes violent protests in Ferguson and drew nationwide focus on police treatment of black suspects. (Photo by

Murder is up in New York City, New Orleans, D.C., Baltimore and Chicago, just to name a few Deep Blue hot spots. For Democrats that’s a nightmare. Barack Obama is our President, but he’s their guy, and the cities are their base. Hope and change weren’t supposed to be so bloody, and so dystopic. Yet, sadly they are. Crime is back as a political issue.

Making Students ‘Uncomfortable’ With Sexually Graphic Novels Is Not ‘Challenging’ Them

Intellectually, graphic novels are too easy. Giving students picture books is coddling them. Giving them trigger warnings for ideas is coddling them too, though there is a place for trigger warnings for visual matter. Colleges need to set higher standards for both students and themselves. They need to show that they understand how to challenge students intellectually, not just how to make them uncomfortable.

And now, with the advance of technology and the federal government selling military-style weapons to local law enforcement, the fundamental protections for citizens are eroding. But it’s not too late. We must fight back. Our very republic depends upon it. The American Experiment hangs in the balance.
