George Soros and his 'rented evangelicals' outed by Christian leaders

- The Washington Times

A new video from the American Association of Evangelicals reveals how George Soros, through his many funding ventures, has been busily infiltrating the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party. Truly, with the left, political wars know no bounds.

Socialist Ocasio-Cortez's eye-rolling tie of climate change to Nazi fight

- The Washington Times

Today's fight against climate change is yesterday's fight against the Nazis -- at least, that's how socialist legislative wanna-be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez puts it. This is what the Democrats are bringing to the table for the midterms, a House candidate who ties climate change to evil murderers in a potatoes, potahtoes kind of way?

Polio-like paralyzing disease hits hundreds -- but don't call it polio

- The Washington Times

The United States was declared "polio-free" in 1979, a feat the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is "thanks to [an] effective vaccine." But now it's back -- or is it? The government says no, the condition that's been inflicting hundreds with polio-like symptoms is not, in fact, polio. It's polio-like. It's polio-pretty much. But it's not polio.

Hillary Clinton's dwindling power

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton, never one for the conservatives, has now managed to isolate -- nay, tick off -- even the hardest core of her supporters. What's come from her fans in the media in the last few hours could very well signal the end of Clinton's long-standing, long-running reign in political courts.

Trump's triumphant tweet: I'll send troops to 'CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER'

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump, in an early morning tweet, vowed to put a stop to the flow of foreigners making their way from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador into America by using U.S. military, if necessary, to close and protect the southern borders. And with that, Trump's poll numbers, among his base, no doubt flew skyward.

Minnesota Republicans attacked in streets show true colors of left

- The Washington Times

A couple of campaigning Minnesota Republicans who were attacked in public -- one at a restaurant, the other when she asked why he kicked away her political sign -- aren't incidences of violence that simply show the signs of heated political times. They go deeper than that. They show the pure evil that's driving the Democratic Party.

'First Man' -- no surprise here -- falls short of ticket sales

- The Washington Times

"First Man," the movie that was supposed to showcase the historical greatness of the first man to walk the moon, Neil Armstrong -- but that omitted the triumphant and patriotic planting of the flag of record from the very country that made this greatness possible, America -- has suffered a bit of a red face with its opening weekend ticket sales. Sales were projected at $21 million but came in short, at $16.5 million.

Elizabeth Warren, the BoSox Bill Buckner pariah of politics

- The Washington Times

Elizabeth Warren, who took the puzzling step of announcing her DNA test results showing she was less Native American than most European Americans, has now come under fire from the Cherokee Nation. And how rightly so. Warren has become to politics what Bill Buckner has been to Red Sox fans for decades -- a pariah.

Comedian Joy Behar told her audience on ABC's "The View" that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resorts to "whataboutism" when asked about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Oct. 15, 2018. (Image: ABC, "The View" screenshot)

Even Joy Behar of 'The View' thinks Hillary Clinton's full of it

- The Washington Times

By now, everybody's heard about Hillary Clinton's denial that hubby Bill abused his presidential power by having an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and denial that he should have stepped aside. Shockingly, even Joy Behar of "The View," thinks Hillary's gone out on a lonely limb to defend her husband with this.

Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and their shocking mocking of Tucker Carlson

- The Washington Times

CNN's Don Lemon and CNN's Chris Cuomo engaged in some mean-spirited banter about Fox's Tucker Carlson during a recent televised spot, showing in 42 short seconds just why they're the worst of the worst -- why nobody with an ounce of intellect takes the mainstream media serious any more. CNN: Painful to watch TV.

#MeToo ought to emphasize common sense, not just victimhood

- The Washington Times

#MeToo's an important crusade; sexual harassment, assault, attack are all blots on humanity, particularly against the female side of humanity, and ought to prosecuted to the fullest extent of applicable laws. But it'd be nice if #MeToo weren't simply a finger-point. It'd be nice if the campaign hit hard as an educational tool, as well.

Democrats' double standard on racism

- The Washington Times

Don Lemon, by another name, would be vilified by the left, fired by CNN and relegated to the scrap heap of has-been celebrity-ism. But Lemon furthers the left's narrative against the right -- the one that says President Donald Trump is racist. So he's safe.
