North Korea must be dealt with

- The Washington Times

North Korea, long a thorn in the side of America -- a thorn that sharpened considerably under the "strategic patience"-slash-do-nothing leadership of Barack Obama -- has seized a third American citizen. And the regime must be dealt an aggressive blow.

Obama heads to Chicago to agitate against Trump

- The Washington Times

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama's about to emerge from the shadows -- and first stop, University of Chicago. Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to -- here's the gist -- use that Leftist Loud and Proud persona to tackle the problem of President Donald Trump.

The New York Times admits wrongdoing? Why, yes -- yes indeed

- The Washington Times

Did The New York Times just admit wrongdoing? Why yes, yes indeed, the newspaper, through its sports editor, sent an email to The Washington Post taking responsibility for a recent tweet that appeared to show how much the New England Patriots hated President Donald Trump in comparison to Barack Obama -- only the tweet was highly inaccurate.

Scientists go all woman-ey and gear for anti-Trump protests

- The Washington Times

Scientists -- and granted, that term is used most loosely in this context -- have taken a page from the leftist woman's playbook on How to Defeat Donald Trump in Six Easy Protest Steps and, upset at the president's climate change views, scheduled some mean marches for the streets of Washington, D.C.

Far-right leader and candidate for the presidential election Marine Le Pen speaks in Paris, Friday, April 21, 2017, one day after the attack that killed one police officer and wounded three other people. Le Pen campaigns against immigration and Islamic fundamentalism. (AP Photo/Michel Euler)

Paris terror shows Marine Le Pen, like Trump, is right

- The Washington Times

A terror attack in Paris -- now there's a phrase we've been seeing quite a bit of in recent times -- could be the final straw for France citizens, the one that drives Marine Le Pen across the finish line. Why? She's right. France needs quick border control and a halt to immigration.

Mike Huckabee hates Comcast, too

- The Washington Times

Apparently, having a "former presidential candidate" or "former governor" next to your name doesn't get you any better Comcast cable service than the average no-name Joe. Just ask Mike Huckabee.

New York billionaire George Soros spent $7 million on Democrats in election races in 10 states to try to influence criminal justice reform from the inside. In two such contests, outspent Republicans dropped out before the election. (Associated Press)

George Soros and his shady $4.8 million U.S. taxpayer deal

- The Washington Times

George Soros, the self-declared billionaire philanthropist who amuses himself by capsizing and upsetting national economies and by pressing all-things-progressive in politics, has a curious expenditure of taxpayer cash in the amount of $4.8 million. Curiously enough, the money's been sent to Macedonia -- a country that leans conservative, in direct contrast to Soros' own personal political interests.

Gretchen Carlson, ex-Fox-er, presses Congress to fight for women, victims

- The Washington Times

Gretchen Carlson, one of the many now-former Fox News talents to come forward in recent months to speak of sexual harassment at the cable giant, is now pressing Congress to get in the employee rights game by passing a bill that would make it easier for workplace victims of criminal behaviors to come forward and sue -- without having to use the corporation's forced arbitration clause.

Coulter, Milo, Rice and the loss of free-thinking at colleges

- The Washington Times

The latest college cave to petulant student demands involves Ann Coulter and Berkeley, and the cancellation of the conservative firebrand's speech over fears of violence. Hey, Berkeley, how about sending out the cops to deal with the law-breakers -- rather than squelching the free speech of the innocent?

Aaron Hernandez, a tragedy of wasted talent

- The Washington Times

Aaron Hernandez, of former NFL fame, killed himself in prison, the Department of Correction reported. The former New England Patriots tight end was found hanging from a bed sheet attached to his single-cell window in his Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., shortly after 3 a.m. What a tragedy. A tragic end to a life that had become a tragedy.
