'Climate migrants,' the left's tool to pry borders wide

- The Washington Times

"Climate migrants" are defined as those individuals in the world who've suffered some sort of weather-related disaster and are, therefore, in the eyes of the left, in the minds of radicals like Sen. Bernie Sanders, are worthy of automatic entry into the United States. Well, there's a large pool of people for ya.

Impeachment prejudice

That beauty is in the eye of the beholder goes without saying. A reminder may be needed, though, that meaning is in the ear of the listener. That's because words filtered through an inner universe of preconceived notions can wind up appallingly distorted. Americans judging the words of presidential impeachment witnesses must focus on firsthand facts and discard prejudiced opinions fashioned from the biases of President Trump's detractors.

What 'slew' of shut stores?

I read with interest Donald Lambro's recent column ("Slowing economy could mean trouble for Trump in the election," Web, Nov. 7). There is one whopper in the third paragraph, however, that demonstrates the importance of fact checking before writing.

There are 'moron leaders,' too

It is easy to buy into Mr. Tyrrell's opinion that the Democrats are relying on stupid people to help them win the 2020 election ("Dems lure voters that believe America is anti-immigrant and racist," Web, Nov. 12). However, it only speaks to one side of the equation. The other side is equally evident — those "moron leaders" who drip with venom, seeking to inflame and overturn the results of the 2016 election.

Impeachment charade: Umm, I feel like Trump may have maybe said that, or meant it

- The Washington Times

All hail the big day -- the Democrats' big ah-ha, gotcha, Mr. President moment, when open hearings on Capitol Hill with key Witnesses In The Know would provide the final quid pro quo proof, leading to impeachment of Donald Trump. Or, as Ambassador Bill Taylor might painfully put it -- umm, the way I see it is I feel like the way everybody understood it is that the president may have thought about that thing, that quid pro quo thing.

Atheists threaten another praying coach and team

- The Washington Times

Well, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is at it again. Coaches and players at a Missouri high school held a after-game prayer session -- and that prompted the atheists from Wisconsin to take offense, take up pen and paper, and shoot off a warning letter to Cameron School District officials. Quit the praying -- or we'll sue.
