Why Trump should be reelected

The president’s primary responsibilities are to protect national security and enable inclusive prosperity. Mr. Trump’s record and Biden’s facile vision make the incumbent the better choice.

Supreme Court controversy solved: Follow the Constitution

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last week at age 87. She served 27 years on America's highest court and while she was the most dependable vote for the left wing, she also was genuinely liked by people of all political stripes. Her life and her service should be celebrated.

Trump ballots in trash, oh my

- The Washington Times

What a coincidence. Democrats have a crappy candidate for president. Democrats are on an all-courts press to get as many voters as possible to mail in ballots, rather than vote in person. And here are these "Trump for president" ballots from Luzerne County that turn up discarded. What's a good GOPer to think?

Virus deaths higher in 'blue' states

President Trump has claimed that COVID-19 is a disease most severely infecting Democratic-voting states and districts. I decided that had to be refuted because it just did not make sense. I used an Excel spreadsheet focusing on deaths per million by state.

All know abortion is murder

When a woman has a miscarriage, it is a sad event. She tells family and friends, "I lost my baby. People are kind and sympathetic. When a pregnant woman is injured in an accident and the doctors can only save her life, they say, "We saved her life, but even though we tried as hard as we could, we could not save the child." We are saddened when we hear of such events.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Give Pelosi the boot, now

I can't think of more self-absorbed, vile narcissists and pathological liars than Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her loathsome cohorts. Mrs. Pelosi and her gangster partners have been working against the president and the American people since President Trump took office. Mrs. Pelosi blocked the bill to help the American people survive the pandemic. Now she has the unmitigated gall to try to coerce the president with the threat of another impeachment. Why have the Republicans not filed charges against her and her co-conspirators for violating their oaths of office?

Trump still president

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is at it again. Inspired by her House boys, she threatens another impeachment process of the president upon his Supreme Court justice nomination ("Pelosi doesn't rule out impeachment to delay Trump's Supreme Court pick," Web, Sept. 20. Firstly the 2019 impeachment was a joke. Round two would be an utter circus.

No mention of diabetes, virus-deaths link

U.S. deaths from COVID-19 have surpassed 200,000, but 90% of those deaths involved comorbidities. In fact, the reporting criteria have been so corrupted that apparently in some places (e.g., the U.K.) if you had a car accident and died but were found positive in a PCR test for COVID-19 antigens, it went down as a COVID-19 death.

Israel-Syria peace unlikely

Abraham Wagner urges the Trump administration to seek a treaty between Israel and Syria ("Next steps in the Middle East after historic Abraham Accords peace agreement," Web, Sept. 21). He claims that "Israel and Syria were close to a real peace agreement before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war" in 2011.

President Trump should make a Supreme Court pick

As we all now know, there is a Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whose casket, as of this writing, is reposing in the Supreme Court. Former clerks, friends, and soon the president of the United States, will pay their respects. Next week Justice Ginsburg will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery. By that time Mr. Trump will have announced his nominee for her replacement.
