So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision, and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.

And people like this ultimately fail. They fail, because the future is won by those who build and not destroy and the world is shaped by people like Jim Foley, and the overwhelming majority of humanity who are appalled by those who killed him.
From Obama’s statement on the killing of James Foley.

President Obama might still decide to give a speech about events in Ferguson. But it probably won’t be the speech many of his supporters want. When Obama gave the first Race Speech he was a unifying figure trying to win the Democratic nomination. Today he’s a divisive figure who needs to govern the whole country. The White House never forgets that.
Ezra Klein breaks down why Obama didn’t exactly win hearts over with his Ferguson speech yesterday.

I want to assure all of us we going to get to bottom of what happened. Any shooting is troubling. Obviously, this reopens the pain of what happened at Fort Hood five years ago. We know these families, we know the service to their country and the sacrifices that they make.

Um, Obama taped an episode of "Between Two Ferns"?

Based on how the interview goes, Zach Galifinakis is probably going to be invited to speak at CPAC next year. Even money he bumps Ben Carson.
