- The Washington Times

Much ado has been made by MSNBC and The New York Times and the left and the Democrats about the latest, newest, glitziest, golden boy hoped-for impeachment witness, former Rudy Giuliani business associate Lev Parnas. But this guy is a dud like all the rest.

Add Iran's leadership to ash heap of history

Addressing the British Parliament in 1982, President Ronald Reagan outlined a plan for placing the Soviet Union and Marxism-Leninism on the "ash heap of history." It is an objective President Trump might pursue against the mullahs in Iran, who are subsidizing terrorism in the Middle East and threatening to export it elsewhere.

Trump and the United States have put Iran on notice

America had shown weakness to Iran during the Obama years. Allowing it to pursue its plans for nuclear weapons. Giving it money, cash on pallets in the night, like an illicit drug deal. Everything changed last week.

The era of 'measured response' against Iran is over

Is Mr. Trump a "loose cannon, maniac, trigger happy?" No, far from it. The president is a strategic thinker. By all appearances, the president had a deliberate strategy to encircle and reduce Iranian military threat three years ago.

Iraq's incompetent government is not America's problem

Americans can be forgiven if they don't understand what is going on in Iraq regarding the embassy siege and the killing of Iranian Gen. Soleimani because it is becoming increasingly clear that the Iraqi government doesn't either.

Mike Pompeo, best line ever: 'Ask Mr. Soleimani'

- The Washington Times

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a sit-down with Chris Wallace of Fox News, laid out in precise terms exactly why America is in the right, Iran is in the wrong, and Gen. Qaddem Soleimani, head of the dastardly Quds force, had it coming when President Donald Trump's drone strike took him out and killed him. And then he gave the Best. Line. Ever.

Black Americans are coming home to the GOP

If you listen to their personal stories and read their excellent writings, you will understand why they believe that if black Americans -- or Hispanic, Asian, white or any other Americans -- are to have a better chance of achieving personal success, then Donald Trump must be reelected president.

Get rid of Pelosi now

Back in the old days, when a politician abused their office and disrespected the people of the country there was a cry from the masses that they should be run out of town on a rail.

Anti-American Democrats

I'm confused — were the anti-American congressional Democrats actually hoping that the U.S. embassy attack in Iraq had succeeded and lost American lives? If you read their tweets, it sure seems like it. These vermin who inhabit the hallowed halls of Congress make my blood boil daily. I'd love for the president to appoint some of them as ambassadors to our most dangerous embassies so they can see for themselves what it's like. What subhuman disgraces these leftists are.

UN pansies up in arms as Trump goes 'America First' on Iran

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump, with his airstrike order against Iraq's airport that left dead Iran's Gen. Qassem Soleiman, didn't just set the regime on notice that this administration takes seriously attacks on American citizens. He also told the United Nations: your opinion isn't necessary. And the UN doesn't like that at all. Not one bit.
