Dennis Prager: A Huge Betrayal of Trust


Last Thursday’s report by Inspector General Horowitz on FBI behavior during the Hillary Clinton email probe should shake our country to its core.

This report continues the erosion of public trust in an American institution that has long been highly esteemed for its professionalism and integrity.  While exposing gross political bias in several FBI officials, the report scorches former FBI Director James Comey for his abuse of authority, and for deceiving both his superiors and the public.

What motivated him? Mollie Hemmingway on my program did not hesitate to answer: He “was definitely animated by self-interest—in his own power and the power of the FBI.”

There was a time when public servants were motivated by earning the public trust.  We will suffer greatly as a nation if this doesn’t continue.

Jerry Bowyer: Media Hypocrisy on North Korea


This is Jerry Bowyer of Townhall Finance for Townhall.com.

The hypocrisy on the left was on full display during the Trump-Kim summit. Many on the left outright attacked Trump for trying diplomacy and giving Kim “legitimacy.” On MSNBC, guests said—on a number of occasions—that this meeting showed how much Trump loves his “fellow” dictators.

This is clearly absurd, but even more so given the absence of that rhetoric in 1994, when President Carter—during the Clinton administration—persuaded Kim Jong-il to agree to stop making nukes. We all know how that worked out.

But now it’s Trump  and the media can’t stop throwing cold water on it.

If anyone other than Trump was up there shaking Kim’s hand, elite media would be fawning.

Lanhee Chen: North Korean Summit A Significant Step on a Long Road


President Trump’s historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un was a very significant step as the two leaders seek to bridge the wide chasm that has separated the two nations since the cessation of hostilities on the Korean Peninsula almost 65 years ago.

While the world made much of the handshake and the photo op between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un, our focus should really be on the hard work that comes now … in the wake of their meeting.

North Korea agreed to engage in complete denuclearization, but will we be able to both verify their actions and ensure they cannot restart their nuclear weapons program?

These are important questions that remain to be answered.

We should all hope and pray for success.  And the recent summit was a huge step forward.  But we should also recognize that a difficult and long road lies ahead.
