Theresa May

The lady at bay in Old Blighty

- The Washington Times

Theresa May, who has mismanaged Britain’s exit from the European Union, won her vote of confidence in the House of Commons this week, and now she’s in the hard place the country preacher found himself after winning a vote of confidence to unify his congregation, soothe hurt feelings and make peace with his deacons.

All the sound and fury called news

This has been a rough year for news junkies. Today the abundance of sources enables massaging the news to fit personal prejudices and predispositions. It’s the famous slogan of The New York Times, “All the news that’s fit to print” distorted to “All the news that fits our bias, we print.”

The censorship of the American mind

- The Washington Times

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education found in its recent “Spotlight on Speech Codes 2019” that across the country, at 466 of America’s so-called “top colleges and universities,” students are not allowed to fully exercise their First Amendment freedom of speech rights.

Playing the Russophobia card

Liberal Russophobia has become a powerful force responsible for deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations.

Mika Brzezinski by a different name would be fired

- The Washington Times

Mika Brzezinski of "Morning Joe" fame made a tasteless joke about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as possibly a "wanna dictator's butt-boy" during an MSNBC segment with Sen. Dick Durbin. And much as she apologized, fact is: If Brzezinski were named, say, Tucker Carlson, or Sean Hannity, or Laura Ingraham, today's mainstream media would be filled with expressions of outrage.
