Call terrorism by its name

When will terrorist actions actually be called terrorism by the leaders of this country? After the explosion in New York City, Gov. Cuomo stated that there was no evidence of international terrorism connected to it.

Rep. Lewis deserves medal

The Philadelphia Liberty Medal is a highly reputable prize. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is an excellent choice for this year’s recipient (“John Lewis awarded Liberty Medal for civil rights work,” web, Sept. 19). The prize has an established history and Mr. Lewis is an effective congressman.

Liberals’ refugee penance

This week the United States welcomed its 10,000th Syrian refugee. There are 30,000 more waiting in line. This helping of distressed human beings is a big thrill to confused Democrats. It doesn’t matter that last Sunday bombs were set off in New York and New Jersey, or that nine people were sliced with a cleaver in Minnesota. And what was the glue that connected these events? Muslim hatred of western values.

No purse from this sow

Fellow Democrats, wake up. There is nothing — absolutely nothing — in either the soul or the track record of Hillary Clinton that should make voters enthusiastic. Virtually every day a new scandal surfaces, and the rumors are that the really big scandals have yet to emerge (“Millennial voters spurning Clinton, but not for GOP,” Web, Sept. 19).

Emmys show Hollywood’s decline

The insidious injustice of O.J. Simpson getting away with a vicious double murder and then being honored by dominating the Emmy Awards comes as no surprise, as it headlines the reckless decline of the entertainment industry (“‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Veep’ take top honors at Emmys,” Web, Sept. 18).

Don't vote with emotions

Defying virtually all the pundits' predictions, Donald Trump has defeated 16 of his opponents. Just a few weeks ago these same pundits resurrected their strongly felt predictions that Mr. Trump was "finished." After being 0 for 16, a person would be rethinking his or her position, right? Wrong.

Johnson right choice for president

The Libertarian ticket of Gary Johnson and William Weld brings a huge amount of executive experience, acquired when the candidates were governors. I believe governors are the most qualified politicians to ascend to the presidency.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Science determines sex

The Michigan education board is set to approve guidelines declaring that students themselves are best qualified to determine their own gender identity, and that outside confirmation from medical and mental health professionals is not required ("Michigan board approves LGBT guidance to schools," Web, Sept. 14).

Boycott boycotters

In light of the recent dishonorable attacks on our national anthem by the pampered divas of professional sports, I would like to ask one question: Where is the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars?

Police need tools to do job

In my opinion, letting the police have the equipment they need to keep the population safe should be a good thing ("Donald Trump's vow to return military equipment to police jeopardizes outreach to blacks," Web, Sept. 12). If a person is not breaking the law, why would he or she need to fear the police having this equipment?

More disregard for Americans

Hillary Clinton decided to expose other persons to her pneumonia, a potentially contagious disease. She demonstrated an inability to see the immorality of that decision, which could have life-threatening consequences for the young and elderly. Her statement, "I just didn't think it was going to be that big a deal," illustrates once again her contempt for the welfare of the American people. Deplorable.

School choice means prosperity

In these final days of the 114th Congress (until Sept. 30, 2016, when Congress returns home to campaign for reelection), the most critical task that stands before us is to set our nation back onto the constitutional track by restoring "the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity."

Delusional Democrats

When we elected Barack Obama as our president, we selected not only a chief of the executive branch of government but a chief political philosopher as well. As philosopher-in-chief, Mr. Obama can divine the future, see the arc of history to which all the rest of us mortals are blind, and know just where America's most insidious enemies can be found -- in the Republican Party.

'Deplorables' may not forgive

Before Hillary Clinton castigates Donald Trump's supporters as a "basket of deplorables," perhaps she should take a closer look at her own political base as well as her own political machine — not to mention her candor and the Clinton Foundation ("Hillary Clinton backpedals as 'deplorables' threatens to become her own '47% moment,'" Web, Sept. 11).

Clinton's corrupt history

Hillary Clinton has serious problems when it comes to transparency and character. She sent classified emails over nonsecure channels. She was involved in the Whitewater/Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan scandal.

Obama's non-stick IRS

Who knew that ensuring fair and lawful tax collection was so problematic? Internal Revenue Service agents recently admitted to delaying tea party and other conservative group applications for tax-exempt status, and composing non-standard questions for those applicants ("IRS refuses to abandon targeting criteria used against tea party, conservative groups," Web Sept. 7).

The cult of global warming

In 2015 the World Economic Forum had a prophetic vision that unless the world mended its wicked ways, "global warming will become catastrophic and irreversible." This past July U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that global warming was as dangerous to the world as Islamic terrorism.
