    Townhall.com ^ | September 23, 2016 | D.W. Wilber
    It's time for all the cop bashers out there to learn the truth about police work. The short explanation is that while forensics and science play a large part in modern criminal investigations, being a police officer itself is not a science. It's imperfect people doing their best to enforce imperfect laws, in an often times very difficult environment, and being forced to make split second, sometimes life and death decisions, most of the time with little if any information to base their decisions on. You want perfection, it only exists in the movies. Try 'Robocop', it's entertaining, but it's...

    ELIZABETH, N.J. – Authorities said they apprehended Ahmad Khan Rahami, the 28-year-old wanted in connection with weekend bombings in Manhattan and Seaside Park, N.J., after a shootout Monday with police officers. The bloody incident capped off a frantic 72-hour period in this region and beyond, marked by the dual bombings, a stabbing spree in Minnesota and then, Sunday night, the discovery of still more explosive devices at a train station here. Even as the widening probe into the bombings continued across this region, authorities sought to reassure residents that the the bombings and additional explosives appeared to be the work...

    No matter where you look, if you're watching the MSM or a NeverTrumper is on the screen, you will hear the statement that Trump needs to win Pennsylvania. NeverTrumper Glenn Beck pushes this notion on his show regularly. The reason they do this is to put all the focus on Pennsylvania, where it is always an uphill fight for a Republican and the polls often look tough. Glenn knows that he has Trump supporters in his audience and his goal is to demoralize them. Unfortunately, he often distorts the truth or simply misstates it, to accomplish this goal. Trump absolutely...

The Wapo brought attention to the widely circulated video of the Democratic presidential nominee's departure from the ceremony, in which Clinton can be seen leaning against a security bollard and then buckling and stumbling as her security detail helps her into a black van. Citing two former Secret Service agents who reviewed the video,...

    A little, that is. Shadi Hamid writes in the LA Times about why Islam isn't like other faiths -- as I've long been explaining here. He explains the reason the Quran is different from the Bible in very articulate terms: Contrary to what many think, there is no Christian equivalent to Koranic "inerrancy," even among far-right evangelicals. Muslims believe the Koran is not only God's word, but God's actual speech -- in other words, every single letter and word in the Koran comes directly from God. This seemingly semantic difference has profound implications. If the Koran is God's speech, and...

    While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each generated headlines about comments made Wednesday night at a candidates’ forum, the buzz Thursday morning was more about a report claiming Clinton relied on a “micro” earbud as she fielded questions about national security — a claim her campaign vigorously denied. The website True Pundit quoted unnamed New York police sources saying Clinton was wearing an “inductive earpiece” during the NBC forum hosted by Matt Lauer. The website described the unit as the kind of tech used by stage actors in need of prompting to recite forgotten lines. Two senior campaign aides, though,...

The Trump campaign immediately rebuked the false media reports last night. Senator Jeff Sessions appeared on Fox News this morning to continue asserting the campaign message that illegal border crossing will be halted, deportation of illegal aliens will be enforced and there is no substantive change to Donald Trump’s immigration position. The media loves to use the term “deportation force” to manufacture an narrative of a new controversy. However, there is already...

Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don't know." Suppose the phrase Second Amendment people had been replaced with any other special-interest group. Would there be any claims that Trump was threatening assassinations? In a Newsweek interview on Monday, Hillary Clinton excoriated...

Moreover, surely Israel prefers Trump instead of Clinton, who would represent Obama's third term and a contiuation of the anti Israeli foreign policy she established as Sec of State.

    n the past seven days, German civilians have come under attack from four men of Middle Eastern or Asian origin. Three have been linked to Isil. The latest incident saw a Syrian blow himself up outside a Bavarian festival after pledging allegiance to Isil. Joachim Herrmann, Bavaria’s interior minister, has suggested that such attacks raise questions about an immigration policy that has seen more than one million migrants enter Germany largely unchecked over the past year, many from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Raising such questions may appear logical and sensible, but Germany’s debate about migration issues does not always follow...

That's not something that most people are comfortable with saying or even thinking, because (in the West) it seems to run counter to some core beliefs, and reminds us of seemingly similar formulations that have terrible dark history associated with them. However, these impressions, upon further examination, are incorrect. The formulation "Islam is the problem", or even does...

    major contractors deny any role in vehicles’ production or presence (WND) – The mystery of the military-style U.N. vehicles spotted being hauled along Virginia’s highways deepened on Tuesday when two major contractors denied to WND that they had any role in the vehicles’ production or presence. WND had reported on Monday when a wave of blogs reported online that trucks painted with the United Nations logo were being moved by flatbed through Virginia. One interested reader pointed out that the trucks likely were made in America and simply needed to be hauled to some port for shipment to customers –...

    The conservative blogosphere is lighting up again with accusations of polling bias against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in his race against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. However, Trump supporters should avoid giving into this temptation to assume unfavorable results must be biased results. Clinton really is leading Trump, and by nearly 6 percentage points. The blogospherian argument goes something like this: Clinton is leading Trump by 5 to 7 points in certain polls because the pollsters oversampled or over-weighted Democrats by about 5 to 7 points. If the polls are “corrected” to include fewer Democrats then the race is actually...

    Americans love their guns, as any good historian will tell you. Following the recent Orlando, Florida murders, in which some 50 patrons of the Pulse Bar were shot dead by a rifle-toting assailant, United States news outlets described the tragedy as "the largest mass shooting in American history". That was true, but only if you counted its most recent predecessors - at Virginia Tech University (32 dead), at Sandy Hook Elementary School (27 dead, including 20 children), in San Bernardino (14 dead), Charleston (nine dead), and at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999, in which two teenagers massacred 12...

    This item in the Washington Examiner touched off a brief spate of panic among right-leaning Court watchers late yesterday, as conservatives contemplated the potential ramifications of another SCOTUS vacancy arising upon the departure of a reliably conservative justice. Antonin Scalia's death earlier this year was a serious blow that underscored the stakes of the fall election. Could it possibly be true that Clarence Thomas is also eying the exits -- even with the Democrats favored to retain the White House at this point in the race? Justice Clarence Thomas, a reliable conservative vote on the Supreme Court, is mulling retirement after the presidential election, according...

    A doctor who is listed on the psychological evaluation for Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, said she did not see him and she was not even living in Florida at the time when G4S security firm ordered the evaluation. Psychologist, Dr Carol Nudelman, who now lives in Colorado, said in a statement released through her attorneys to the Miami Herald that she never evaluated Mateen nine years ago for G4S, a security firm that was known as Wackenhut at the time. However, Nudelman's name appears on the document in Florida's state records, which cleared Mateen to carry a firearm as a...
