Kavanaugh should sue

We now see that due process and the rule of law for the accused is nowhere to be seen when leftist politicians are joined by a leftist media to broadcast unsubstantiated rumors and statements to the nation. They know full well that the court of public opinion they have set out to influence can be mightier than a real court of law.

Congress has been derelict

After observing an ‘impotent’ Congress for many years, I now ask if a citizen can sue Congress. My reasons are many, mostly because of the way our current laws are being ignored/abused/misconstrued by those who created them. Consider, for example, how our existing immigration laws are ignored, how there is no consideration of “innocent until proven guilty” for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, or the absence of discussion of the sexual-assault charges against Democrats Rep. Keith Ellison and Sen. Sherrod Brown. Consider, too, the “resist at all costs” approach employed by the Democratic Party.

Rebuild missile defense

"Toward a cost-effective ballistic missile defense" (Web, Sept. 19) is important and factually accurate, but sadly is unlikely to change U.S. policy. As the director general for U.K. cooperation with the SDI program, I worked closely with the first three directors of the American program: James Abrahamson, George Monahan and Henry Cooper. We all agreed that the only effective ABM defense would have to be space-based.

Left relishing Ford accusations

Politically, the Democrats have much more to gain if U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh gets seated with the Christine Blasey Ford allegations unresolved. If Sen. Dianne Feinstein had divulged the information when she had first acquired it or soon enough afterward to lay the matter to rest, the Democrats would have missed their chance to delegitimize a future Supreme Court decision. However, under the new judicial standards set forth by the #MeToo movement, Judge Kavanaugh will be seated as a guilty judge, rendering any split verdicts illegitimate in the eyes of the Democrats' base.

What about war on men?

The same people who invented a "war on women" have unleashed over time a real and virulent war on men, a war that casts aside justice and ignores basic rights.

Ford accusations suspicious

The sudden sexual assault allegation by Christine Blasey Ford against the U.S. Supreme Court nominee, the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh, reeks of questionable motivation ("Kavanaugh, accuser set for high-stakes Senate showdown," Web, Sept. 17). Having worked as a professional in the criminal-justice system for three decades (specifically, having worked with victims of crime for many years), I have the utmost respect and empathy for genuine victims of crime, and I serve as their strongest advocate. However, the situation that now presents itself and the implications surrounding it are profoundly troubling.

What about Clinton rape victims?

Christine Blasey Ford's recent rape claims against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are very serious. So much so that I think Mrs. Ford and Monica Lewinsky should console the alleged rape victims of former President Bill Clinton.

GOP can pull off midterms

Republican pollsters predict difficult midterm election problems for Republican candidates — because, they say, although people like President Trump's economy, they don't like Mr. Trump.

'Green' folly

Stephen Moore paints a grim picture of the costs to the poor and middle class of wind and solar energy ("How solar and wind mandates tax the poor and middle class," Web, Sept. 16). But the hidden cost multipliers for solar and wind (so-called "renewables") are many, many times worse than what he describes.

Shore up Navy now

As a former Navy enlisted man and naval officer who served on 13 ships, including destroyers, radar pickets, aircraft carriers and auxiliary ships, I am concerned with the lack of readiness of the U.S. fleet.

Sen. Feinstein likely fabricating

Friday's front page of The Washington Times carried a story about California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein forwarding a letter to investigators concerning U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ("Kavanaugh denies allegation of sexual misconduct in school," Web, Sept. 14).

No more free rides

Due to the increase in the number of illegal immigrants seeking asylum in Europe, we are seeing an increase in the number of asylum seekers here in the United States.

Left's Trump attacks will continue

Bob Woodward's anti-Trump book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," hit the media spotlight just 60 days prior to the midterm congressional elections. Mr. Woodward's publisher is Simon & Schuster, an affiliate subsidiary of CBS Corp. and its news division, which vilifies and selectively reports on the president. In this context, there is no coincidence to be found in the timing of the Woodward book release.

'Anonymous' may not be far away

The recent anonymous New York Times op-ed highlighting serious problems with President Trump and allegedly written by a senior official in the Trump administration is not an unexpected development in the recent news cycle.
