Bloomberg does a Soros and buys up law enforcement

- The Washington Times

Michael Bloomberg, according to various media reports, has been funding state attorney general offices and paying the salaries of key, politically liberal-leaning attorneys general -- a practice that gives all appearances of buying law enforcement on the local and state levels. And guess what: This is what George Soros does, too.

Obama is jealous of Trump's economy

- The Washington Times

Barack Obama, ex-prez, took to Twitter to try and claim that today's great economy is due to his 11-year-old policy -- suggesting, laughably, his White House is owed a big ol' thank you from President Donald Trump, from the business world, from America. Sorry, Mr. Obama, but to coin one of your own phrases: You didn't build that.

Joe Biden knows: South Carolina or bust

- The Washington Times

Joe Biden isn't exactly putting out the Closed, Gone Fishing sign on his political campaign. But even he's acknowledging, subtly and in not so many words, but entertaining the thought just the same, that his trail to the White House has been less than smooth and that South Carolina may prove the end of the line.

William Barr's tight spot and the red herring tweet

More than 1,100 ex-Department of Justice officials have signed a petition demanding Attorney General William Barr resign over his handling of the Roger Stone case. This isn't due to a presidential tweet. This was all part and parcel of the Democrats' next political plan.

Karl Marx quoted at Oscars -- and it's not even surprising

- The Washington Times

We always knew those on the left, particularly the scholarly, intellectual, high-brow elitist of the left, were in love with Karl Marx. And Vladimir Lenin. And Benito Mussolini. And Joseph Stalin. And Che Guevara. And the like. They're just becoming more open about it

National Prayer Breakfast reveals a great evil of the left

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump created quite a media stir when he stood at the National Prayer Breakfast podium and, in response to keynote speaker Arthur Brooks' call to love thy enemies and leave behind thy contempt, said he saw things a bit differently -- that it was rather difficult to swallow the bitter bites of fabricated impeachment pushes with a simple shrug and "oh well" hug. Well, Trump is right. Love does not mean tolerance of evil.

'Cuba sucks': Reflections on socialism, behind the curtain

- The Washington Times

A team of Turning Point USA producers took a trip to Cuba to peer behind the glitzy social media photos that show a nation of happy, happy, joy, joy citizens -- and came home to America with a stiff, stern warning for Bernie Sanders' fans and socialist wannabes that went, bluntly, like this: Don't bring the bleak to America.

Super Bowl steamy halftime show not amusing

- The Washington Times

Family friendly has taken a turn toward the pornographic in this country. And apparently, America is loving it. America, minus the parents trying to raise their children with godly values and virtues, is loving it. What happened to class. What happened to talent. What happened to singing without a stripper pole.

John Bolton just the latest Democrat tool in a very large shed

- The Washington Times

John Bolton, former national security adviser at the White House, could've penned a paragraph in his soon-to-be-released book about a picnic lunch with the president -- and the press, the left, the Democrats would've found some way to turn his recorded conversation with Donald Trump into an impeachable offense.

Don Lemon's disgusting on-air mock of Trump

- The Washington Times

Don Lemon of CNN is more opinion than fact. But still: Busting out in a two-minute fit of laughter as show panelists go on a mocking routine of President Donald Trump is beneath even CNN. At least, you'd think. But here's the hypocrisy: A Lemon by a different employer -- say, Fox -- would be on suspension right about now.
