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."
According to a BBC report, mobs of youth are starting fires, burning cars or shops, and then waiting "for emergency services to attend a fire before attacking them." That is a tactic commonly used by Palestinian jihadists.

Barack Fires Back
Under fire all week from critics and even allies, the Obama White House shifted gears and fired back yesterday.

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.
The front page of today's Boston Herald reads: "OBAMAGATE." Another headline declares: "Scandals Invoke Comparison To Nixon." For the past two days MSNBC's "Moring Joe" has even trotted out Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein.

Benghazi Gaining Traction
For months, liberal elites and their media allies have mocked conservatives for caring about the Benghazi scandal. But watching three grown men -- a Marine, a security expert and a career Foreign Service officer -- moved to tears by this gross injustice has evidently moved some in Big Media to care enough to start asking questions.

What's Next On Benghazi?
Yesterday's Benghazi hearing was extraordinary, but you wouldn't know it if you depended on Big Media. Major networks like CNN and MSNBC did not cover yesterday's whistle-blower testimony on the Benghazi scandal. Instead they chose to follow Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who were held captive in an Ohio home for ten years, as they returned to their families.
