New pronouns for the traveling freak show

- The Washington Times

Caitlyn Jenner, taking pride in his or her decolletage with a smart new frock for his famous Vanity Fair photo shoot, started the madness of the summer of ‘15, but he’s got nothing on the educationist establishment. They’re nothing but boobs (and proud of it).

McKinley, a mountain moniker no more

William McKinley doesn’t get the respect he deserves. The nation’s 25th president presided over a powerful pivot point in American history.

Oil, America’s inexhaustible resource

In August 1859 on the eve of the Civil War, Col. Edwin Laurentine Drake completed the first commercial oil well in the United States on Oil Creek just outside of Titusville, Pa.

A Republican version of Obama

Americans may finally be tiring of “talking-point presidents.” For more than six-and-a-half years, this is what President Obama has been — telling Americans what they want to hear, while pursuing policies they do not support.

A late apology in clintonspeak

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton attempted to “come clean” about her emails again, like a sinner squirming in the hands of an angry god, but the partisan gods do not seem to be appeased.

Favoring some claims of conscience over others

We face a crisis of conscience today — a crisis forced upon us by elites in Washington who would pick and choose who is allowed to follow their deeply held beliefs and who is to be punished by the government for doing so.

Let consumers dictate energy mix

In his column "Free consumers from renewable power mandates" (Web, Aug. 6) Thaddeus McCotter raises a valid point regarding states that have chosen to scale back or freeze their renewable-energy mandates. Such actions don't constitute opposition to renewables. "Rather," As Mr. McCotter writes, "Policymakers are concluding that consumer choice and the market will maximize renewable use more efficiently than government fiat."

Dissident diss

Secretary of State John Kerry has taken a lot of heat for refusing to invite Cuban dissidents to today's official flag-raising ceremony at the U.S. Embassy ("Cuba dissidents won't attend U.S. Embassy event," Web, Aug. 12). His justification has been that that there is not enough room to accommodate all the guests. This is disgraceful.

Shifting blame for wildfires

Mother Nature is a cruel mistress. Persistent drought in the West has triggered wildfires that have burned over nearly 6 million acres so far this year. Blaming global warming, or capricious "climate change" -- sometimes it's hot and sometimes it's cold, and sometimes it rains and sometimes it doesn't -- is tempting for the environmental extremists.

Hillary as comedienne

Hillary Clinton dismisses her email troubles as a joke -- she was having a high old time with it in Iowa the other day -- but there's no evidence that the FBI agents assigned to her case are laughing. Joking about your transgressions while an FBI team is examining your life and times is not smart.

Food labeling, Hollywood-style

The first clue that Gwyneth Paltrow didn't know what she was talking about on Capitol Hill earlier this month came with the first words she spoke: "I'm here as a mother."

The Iran deal means game over for U.S. business

If you need another reason to oppose the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration has provided it in the fine print. Why would the U.S. government go out of its way to put American business at an internationally competitive disadvantage?

The Hillary Horror Movie, a Sequel

- The Washington Times

You almost have to pity Hillary Clinton. She has seen this movie, and now she has to sit through it again. The players are different, but it's the same old plot: The lady arrives to cheers and high spirits, and eventually the lady vanishes.

The summer of our discontent

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders represent two sides of the same coin. Both men have tapped into a deep anger -- a discontent -- in the public mood. Little seems to be going right.

Chris Christie's backward remedy for Social Security

At the recent Republican debate, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie won his war of words with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky over government surveillance.

EPA's toxic adventure

Imagine an agency charged with protecting the environment, aptly named the Environmental Protection Agency. Because, you see, we need to protect the environment, and we need a government cudgel with which to do it.

Christians must vote

It has been estimated that less than 20 percent of self-identifying Christians vote. I believe this is the reason self-serving politicians govern our country.

Japan had further plans for U.S.
