President Obama's Final, Dangerous Year
Victor Davis Hanson: National Review
Insidiously and inadvertently, Barack Obama is alienating the people and moving the country to the right. If he keeps it up, by 2017 it will be a reactionary nation. But, counterintuitive as it seems, that is fine with Obama: Après nous le déluge.

5 reasons the 2016 GOP primary is a perfect storm for Donald Trump
Philip Bump: Washington Post
The anecdotal story of the 2016 Republican nomination contest is that an electorate frustrated with the party establishment is conferring its blessing on candidates with either a complete lack of establishment credentials or ones who've been explicit in denouncing the party. Hence Donald Trump. Hence Ben Carson. Hence Ted Cruz.

I Once Asked, "Can Obama Lead" The Answer After Paris Is Painful
Ron Fournier: National Journal
In his mem­oir, Le­on Pan­etta ar­gued that for all of Barack Obama's strengths, he is miss­ing an es­sen­tial in­gredi­ent of lead­er­ship. He lacks "fire," wrote Obama's former CIA dir­ect­or and Pentagon chief. "The pres­id­ent re­lies on the lo­gic of a law pro­fess­or rather than the pas­sion of a lead­er."

In first majority-Muslim U.S. city: Culture shock
Sarah Pulliam Bailey: Washington Post
Karen Majewski was in such high demand in her vintage shop on a recent Saturday afternoon that a store employee threw up her hands when yet another visitor came in to chat. Everyone wanted to talk to the mayor about the big political news. Earlier this month, the blue-collar city that has been home to Polish Catholic immigrants and their descendents for more than a century became what demographers think is the first jurisdiction in the nation to elect a majority-Muslim council.

We Have Enough Refugees Already
Rich Lowry: Real Clear Politics
President Barack Obama has seen the enemy, and it is the refusal to accept more Syrian refugees.

Trump Could Very Well Be the Republican Nominee
Chris Cillizza: Washington Post
It has become damn close to religion in Washington to assume that Donald Trump will, at some point not too far from now, flame out of the presidential race -- that he will start losing altitude in polls, get sick of the whole thing and return to the safe sinecure of Trump Inc.

A New House Bill on Syrian Refugees Doesn't Protect Americans
Jeff Sessions: National Review
The current proposal being considered in the House of Representatives in response to the president's dangerous refugee plan - the American SAFE Act - fails to defend the interests of the American people. It is based on a flawed premise, as there is simply no way to vet Syrian refugees. Just over a month ago, officials from the Department of Homeland Security admitted before the Immigration Subcommittee that there is no database in Syria against which they can run a check. They have no way to enter Syria to verify the applicants' personal information. And we know the region is being flooded with false documents.

Bush Embraces His Family's Interventionist Legacy
Tim Alberta: National Review
The presidential candidate whose campaign was to be anchored by talk of economic mobility - and who so often insists he's his "own man," endeavoring to escape the shadows of his brother and father - found himself calling for the deployment of American combat troops to the Middle East Wednesday, embracing a family legacy he was determined to transcend.

There Are Serious, Unbigoted Reasons to Be Wary of a Flood of Syrian Refugees
Ian Tuttle: National Review
Among politicians and their clingers-on, journalists, nothing takes hold like a bad historical analogy. Thus as politicians - 29 governors chief among them - call for a halt to our Syrian-refugee-resettlement program on the grounds that it might be exploited as a conduit for terrorists, pundits are invoking the plight of Jewish refugees fleeing Adolf Hitler's Germany in an effort to soften American hearts. The Washington Post's Dana Milbank wrote Monday, "This growing cry to turn away people fleeing for their lives brings to mind the SS St. Louis, the ship of Jewish refugees turned away from Florida in 1939," while his colleague Ishaan Tharoor contended: "Today's 3-year-old Syrian orphan, it seems, is 1939's German Jewish child." Meanwhile, a Daily Kos headline shouts: "Replace 'Syrian' with 'Jewish' and we're back to 1939."
