|Memorial Day Message||
Of all the dangers facing our country, perhaps the greatest danger of all is the one that still doesn't make many headlines -- our collective national amnesia.

Islam In Europe
Peaceful, tolerant, socialist Sweden has been stunned by four nights of rioting in predominantly Muslim neighborhoods of Stockholm. One police spokesman said, "We have never had this kind of riots before in Stockholm, not this amount of riots and not this number of hot areas."

Barack Fires Back
Under fire all week from critics and even allies, the Obama White House shifted gears and fired back yesterday. Attorney General Eric Holder delivered an award-winning performance on Capitol Hill on theAP phone records controversy. President Obama spoke to the nation about the IRS scandal.

What Year Is It?
The president has just won a landslide victory. He is looking forward to an aggressive second term agenda. Suddenly scandal strikes. What year is it -- 1973 or 2013? A lot of folks in Washington say it feels like 1973 all over again. It is astonishing how quickly fortunes can change.
