When officer safety is job No. 1, the public suffers

Defending yet another police shooting of an American citizen, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson last week casually made a stunning admission — one that fell largely on deaf ears among the twisted media, race pimps and merchants of racial discord gathered in Ferguson.

Race pimps and war tanks: Why Ferguson was a perfect storm

You have a nasty thug boosting Swisher Sweets from the corner store and roughing up the merchant. Then, like flies to a barnyard, you have swarms of race pimps breathlessly buzzing to the scene to further fuel the rage and delegitimize the very banner behind which they march.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, after criticizing President Obama's foreign policy, said through a spokesman Tuesday that she looks forward to "hugging it out" with the president at a party Wednesday.  (AP Photo/Mike Groll, File)

Hillary Clinton — a woman of no convictions

The rank spectacle of ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton suddenly turning on her commander in chief and former boss to shiv him in the back over the burning ruins she helped make of the Middle East is staggering to behold.

HURT: Do you favor the BLEED Act, or are you a racist?

I call on Congress to write and immediately pass the Begin Loving Ebola Emigres, Dude! Act. And I call on President Obama to sign the BLEED Act, though that is merely a formality he doesn't really have to do if he doesn't feel like it. He can just write the law himself and pass it without Congress.

This undated file image provided by the U.S. Army shows Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. A Pentagon investigation concluded in 2010 that Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching, the military decided not to exert extraordinary efforts to rescue him, according to a former senior defense official who was involved in the matter. Instead, the U.S. government pursued negotiations to get him back over the following five years of his captivity  a track that led to his release over the weekend. (AP Photo/U.S. Army, File)

HURT: An unfair trade for an undeserving deserter

It is truly a fool's errand for any decent person of conscience governed by honesty to engage in debate with the likes of these people. Never has that folly been more acute than in the aftermath of the president's release of the five Kingpins of Terror.

HURT: Obama's audacity of inaction

According to my copy of "The Audacity of Hope," Barack Obama is deeply disturbed by "income inequality," access to health care for poor people and having U.S. troops on aimless missions abroad.

HURT: Frau Hillary C. — a case study that would tax Dr. Freud

It has forever been perfectly fair game in prudent political discourse to demand that politicians seeking higher office reveal information about their physical fitness. Everyone remembers when Democrats and the press tried making an issue out of Ronald Reagan's advanced age and health in 1984.

HURT: Tripping over income inequality with intellectual shoelaces

A French "thinker" writes a book about global poverty and, predictably, The New York Times goes limp in the knees. All out was the putsch last week by the Gray Lady's opinion staff to promote the book aimed at toppling the evil rich around the world. Leading this charge was the paper's famous, bearded Marxist Emeritus columnist Paul Krugman.

President Obama feigned outrage when it became public that the picture of him with Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz and a "44" jersey was just part of some sleazy corporate product campaign by Samsung. (Associated Press)

HURT: President Obama's 'Selfie Doctrine'

In these selfie times when freedom, joy and posterity are just a head-tilt, grin and finger-click away, it is only fitting that the United States of America would have as commander-in-chief the undisputed King of Selfies.
