By Warner Todd Huston --Crime-Terror-Security
Ed Morrissey reminded me today that I wanted to say something about this foolish cave in to Islam perpetrated by the Charlie Hebdo magazine folks.

Global warming update: There’s still snow on the ground in Buffalo
By Dan Calabrese --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

Drivers, Beware: The Costly, Deadly Dangers of Traffic Stops in the American Police State
By John W. Whitehead --American Freedom
“The Fourth Amendment was designed to stand between us and arbitrary governmental authority. For all practical purposes, that shield has been shattered, leaving our liberty and personal integrity subject to the whim of every cop on the beat, trooper on the highway and jail official. The framers would be appalled.”—Herman Schwartz, The Nation

By Robert Laurie --Crime-Terror-Security
Normally, when we talk about illegals entering the country, we’re focused on the U.S. Mexico border. However, it’s obviously not the only place where people are sneaking in. Our boundaries are porous on almost every front - particularly in Florida, where ‘arrival by boat’ is enjoying something of a comeback.
