The differences between a liberal secularized Europe and the Islamic world are irreconcilable. And it is their world, not ours, that is growing in numbers, militancy, converts, crusaders and confidence.

Whether the issue is income inequality or the evil of Wall Street, police brutality or black criminality, the hostility and anger among Democrats over these issues makes the Tea Party vs. the GOP establishment look like a badminton tournament on the country club lawn.

To enrich itself, Hollywood is playing games with religious beliefs and historical truths — and making enemies, not all of whom believe in turning the other cheek.

Here is where the moral culpability of Mayor Bill de Blasio, Attorney General Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and President Obama lies: They gave aid and comfort to the cop-haters and cop-baiters.

The celebrations in Havana and the sullen silence in Miami tell you all you need to know about who won this round with Castro's Cuba. In JFK's metaphor, Obama traded a horse for a rabbit.

If America is a better country today than she has ever been, why are so many, East and West, recoiling from what we offer now?

Something needs to be said in defense of Jonathan Gruber. For while he groveled before Congress and confessed to the sin of arrogance, what this Ivy League con artist boasted about rings true.

Damning Russian "aggression," the House demands that Russia get out of Crimea, South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Transnistria, calls on Obama to end all military cooperation with Russia, impose "visa bans, targeted asset freezes, sectoral sanctions," and send "lethal ... defense articles" to Ukraine. This is the sort of ultimatum that led to Pearl Harbor.

Underlings of Gov. Chris Christie have been under investigation for a year for closing off lanes to the George Washington Bridge. Contrast liberal indignation at Christie, with liberal indulgence of the lawbreaking Thursday night, and you will see what people mean when they talk of a moral double-standard.

As ethnonationalism pulls at the seams of many countries of Europe, it would appear it is also present here in the United States. When political appeals on the basis of race and ethnicity are being made openly by liberal Democrats, as in 2014, we are on a road that ends in a racial-ethnic spoils system — and national disintegration.

Anyone who thinks last Tuesday was a call to compromise with Obama has either an ax to grind or a serious hearing problem.

Today's vote is a referendum on Barack Obama, and he is losing it. But it is not a vote of affirmation. It is not a vote of confidence in the party of McConnell and John Boehner. And it is no mandate. It is America's choice between undesirables.
