Trump's COVID-19 strength versus Biden's fear

- The Washington Times

What America doesn't need right now is a White House leader who tiptoes gently around COVID-19 solutions, falling forever and ever on the side of caution -- which means, in medical speak, forever and ever to stay at home. On this, on COVID-19, Donald Trump brings strength versus Joe Biden, who cowers in fear.

Kamala Harris clangs a communist gong

- The Washington Times

A vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is a vote for communism. There's no other way to paint it. Social justice? Economic justice? Climate justice? Economic justice? This is the language of communists. This is the rhetoric of communist revolutionaries trying to jumpstart an uprising against corrupt, mismanaged, tyrannical government.

Endless campaigns are bad for America

- The Washington Times

Once upon a time, America's presidential elections came every four years, with campaign seasons that lasted the few months before the fated November date. Now, they're endless. As soon as Election Day cometh, the next White House race dawneth. The overarching effect is a population kept in a constant state of political anxiety.

Google, prepare to be cowed

- The Washington Times

In what will surely go down in Big Tech history as an "about time" moment for censor-weary Americans, the U.S. Justice Department filed a suit against Google, accusing the online giant of antitrust violations. Google, prepare to be cowed. At least a little bit.

Masked teens able to shoot vendor in anonymity

Fleetwood Mac singing sensation Stevie Nicks said in a recent conversation with a reporter from The Guardian that if she hadn't aborted the child she conceived with the Eagles' Don Henley, "there would have been no Fleetwood Mac" -- there would have been no music magic.

Jack Dorsey offers lame 'clarity' on blocking Hunter Biden bits

- The Washington Times

Twitter's Jack Dorsey, responded to the massive swell of outrage that came when his company blocked the New York Post and the White House's Kayleigh McEnany over a Hunter Biden report that put Joe Biden in a bad light with a tweet that acknowledged poor messaging. No d'oh. That's called a lame attempt to sideline criticisms.

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?

Socialists are destroying the nation

- The Washington Times

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Chuck Schumer have united to use -- as the red-lipped lipsticked socialist with the mocialist put it -- "every tool at our disposal" that can stop the Senate from confirming any Supreme Court justice nominated by President Donald Trump. In other words: Make way for the firebombs.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield, in a hearing before the U.S. Senate, said face masks are better than any old vaccine in protecting against the coronavirus, and that every man, woman and child in America ought to get used to wearing one, but quick. And then the next day he walked back his remarks.

Minneapolis Marxists now cry at the Marxism they brought

- The Washington Times

Minneapolis City Council, eat crow. In the face of rising crime, the socialist local body -- the ones who spent oh-so-long trying to replace police with some sort of soft and fuzzy enforcement team armed only with "Time Out" cards to slap on criminals -- in the face of real crime hazards, these guys now want to cry for the police.

Michael Caputo, HHS spox, warns: 'Buy ammunition'

- The Washington Times

HHS spokesman Michael Caputo delivered some bombshell advice to Americans that went like this: Buy ammo. 'Cause when Donald Trump wins reelection, his Democratic rival Joe Biden won't concede. Then Caputo accused scientists within the CDC of using the coronavirus to unite in "resistance" against Trump. And guess what: Caputo actually makes sense.
