Illustration on North Korean denuclearization and peace by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Living with a nuclear North Korea

If North Korea doesn’t return to negotiations, it’s fair to assume that the North will lock in its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile arsenals, making denuclearization unachievable.

Volodymyr the Invincible

Soon after the spectacle of woke America’s self-humiliation in Afghanistan, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was getting an “‘ironclad commitment” to Ukraine’s security from President Biden.

Vote ‘no’ on infrastructure

As the House Republicans consider their next step concerning the “infrastructure” legislation on which they may be voting next week (depending on the whims of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi), they need to keep a few things in mind.

Ukraine on my mind

During his recent visit to Washington, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with President Biden and a few members of Congress.

Black Lives Matter finally proves useful

Black Lives Matter of Greater New York called coronavirus vaccine mandates "racist" and vowed a series of street "uprisings" if the government continued to bar those who couldn't prove inoculation from entering public facilities. Finally. BLM, largely based in Marxism, proves useful.

Whistling Straits gives Ryder Cup a seaside links feel

- Associated Press

What you won't find at most courses are the north-northeast winds that roll in on the waves off Lake Michigan and sweep across the two-mile stretch of land at speeds routinely topping 25 mph. Unless, like the European pros, you grew up playing, and still compete often, on the windswept seaside courses popular up and down the coasts of the United Kingdom and Ireland where golf was first played.

Trump the kind of 'crisis' we need

Correct me if I am wrong, but Donald Trump did not start any wars during his time in office. So, according to Bob Woodward, a "national security emergency" would have been required for Middle East peace accords to be brokered.

Iron Dome, aid to Israel crucial to U.S.

There is only one reason to cut $1 billion for Israel's Iron Dome from the government-funding bill, and that is to kill Israelis -- Jews, Christians and Muslim ("Legislative terrorists': Far-left Democrats push Pelosi to strip Israel aid from funding bill," Web, Sept. 21). While this would please anti-Semites inside and outside of Congress, it is incredibly short-sighted.

Ivermectin reduces viral load

Handling friction at Ryder Cup a European specialty

- Associated Press

Friction within the team is nothing new at the Ryder Cup. Except for the Americans. Europe has been dealing with it for decades. It hasn't kept the Europeans from winning with regularity. But this is different.

So many lies

The lack of truthfulness and competent leadership in the Biden administration is depressing. Ignoring the truth deniers in the administration and the sycophant liberal media, who can deny that the direction of our country is significantly different from the one promised by our president?

Left's 'essential' not so essential

The authority to tax is the power to control, contain and crush ("Tax hikes reveal Congress' economic ignorance," Web, Sept. 21). Whenever I hear that a politician wants to raise taxes, even if it's 'for the children,' I get the shakes, the willies and (if it's a progressive demand) full-blown delirium tremens. Call me an old fuddy duddy but I just don't trust politicians, especially ones that consider the donkey an attractive mascot.
