I liken the massive abuse of power by the Democrats going after President Trump in the media to someone throwing fake blood in the water where sharks swarm. Like spoiled-rotten little children, they tug at Mama Pelosi’s skirt, screaming, “impeach Trump!” and Mrs. Pelosi just pats them on the head.
The Washington Times front-page story on journalism groups going to Congress is precious (“Journalists call on Congress to save them from Google, Facebook,” Web, June 11). Where were all these concerned groups when the large “newspaper” groups started buying up the little weeklies and putting those hardworking locals out of jobs?
My purpose in writing is neither to be political nor to condemn a church (“Pastor says he ‘hurt’ congregation by praying for Trump during unscheduled visit,” Web, June 3). I have read both The Times article and the letter written by David Platt, the pastor at McLean Bible Church who prayed for President Trump in front of his congregation. I do not personally know David Platt, but I am familiar with McLean Bible Church and have long held it in high regard for its history of unapologetically...
Impeach, impeach, impeach. Turn on the TV and it seems all the news channels are talking about it — but they never say exactly which "high crimes and misdemeanors" the president has committed. Many Democrats, especially the Democratic presidential candidates, also want to impeach the president. But impeachment is a
Let's look clearly at "obstruction of justice." What President Trump's partisan opponents did to him during and after the 2016 election campaign was gross injustice. If there was obstruction by Mr. Trump, it was not of justice but of injustice. Many critics of the president claim a higher calling. Many
Special counsel Robert Mueller cast many lines into deep and murky Beltway waters and, after almost two years of fishing for the big one, caught only minnows (“The impeachment pipe dream,” Web, May 29). His many casts for a conspiracy to collude between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government in order to deep-six the Clinton campaign were all dry, as empty as the deflated Democrats.
I would like to see Congress pass a new program into law to replace the former Aid to Families with Dependent Children program, which was passed under President Franklin Roosevelt in 1935 and abolished in 1996. Ever since the program’s abolition, there has been a large increase in the number of people (especially children) living in extreme poverty (meaning living on less than $2 per day) and deep poverty (meaning at a level half that of the official poverty line).
The June 4 and June 5 anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre has come and gone. I remember when these events were going on, and thought that the world would stand up to the Chinese dictatorship. No one stood up. I remember that President Clinton gave China “most favored nation” trade status after the massacre. Now there are people in Hong Kong protesting. Maybe it will take a “Hong Kong massacre” for the “democratic” countries of the world to do something. As a supporter of democracy, I...
Bernie Sanders said “the failures of ‘unfettered capitalism’ are evident if Americans look for them.” (“Bernie Sanders evokes FDR, says democratic socialism’s time has come,” Web June 12). He pointed to the life expectancy of a man in McDowell County, West Virginia, at 64 years, compared with a man in affluent Fairfax County, Virginia, at 82 years. “While poor and working families struggle economically and often lack adequate health care, their life expectancy is declining for the first time in...
Numerous Democrats, from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, to Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to Rep. Hakeem Jefferies, chairman of the Democratic Caucus in the House, have all used the same, tired line: “No one is above the law.” They specifically like to use this phrase when referring to President Trump and Attorney General William Barr, as it relates to the Mueller report, and the Democrats’ ongoing investigations.
