China's chilling pre-crime prison indoctrination system

- The Washington Times

BBC News, equipped with cameras, went inside one of China's village reeducation camps -- and emerged not just with footage that would make a freedom-loving American gasp and gag, but also with prescient proof of why runaway Big Tech is bad for the Constitution. It's called jail first, ask questions later.

The United States Holocaust Museum issued a statement making clear that comparisons of Nazi concentration camps with other matters of historical record or modern-day news are inappropriate. And though museum officials didn't name Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, they might as well have.

Trump's 'strategic' Iran offense v. Obama's 'take our cash' deal

- The Washington Times

Retired military Gen. Jack Keane said on national television that President Donald Trump is to be commended for his past few days of foreign policy regarding Iran -- specifically, for heading up "the first administration in 39 years to be on the strategic offensive with the Iranians." That's quite a feat.

Joe Biden's silly 'James Bond-style' gun control fantasy

- The Washington Times

Joe Biden has a dream. He wants "James Bond-style" smart gun controls to protect and save America from all kinds of crime. Well, that's just great. The Democrats' best hope for the presidency -- according to polls, anyway -- wants to use fictional characters exalted on Hollywood's big screens to hone our nation's Second Amendment.

Trump's reelection campaign kicks off 'in the name of Jesus Christ'

- The Washington Times

Paula White, dubbed in 2016 as Donald Trump's "personal pastor," kicked off the president's reelection campaign with an opening prayer that referenced the "demonic networks" that have aligned to destroy this White House. She wasn't just talking about CNN. LOL. But the key takeaway from her prayer was this: White said "Jesus."

Climate change's newest alarmism: It'll eat your flesh

- The Washington Times

Five people in the last two years have been admitted to the same New Jersey hospital for treatment of the same flesh-eating bacterial infection, Vibrio vulnificus, tied to the same Delaware Bay -- and now scientists say it's maybe, or maybe not, but very possibly maybe, definitely likely maybe, due to climate change. Really?

Harvard's takedown of a little kid

- The Washington Times

Harvard, in a move that's supposed to be seen as predicated on principle, told Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv, 18, that sorry, due to your use of the N-word when you were 16, your admissions' ticket has been yanked. Hmm. Monkey see, monkey do. Monkey thinks Harvard's full of poo.

Beto O'Rourke blows Jake Tapper interview

- The Washington Times

In the course of just a couple minutes on CNN, struggling Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke went from "umm, I don't know" to "umm, yes, I think so" to "hmm, no, nope, not at all" on an issue that, in this point in the game, he ought to have a stand. It's like host Jake Tapper was his position whisperer or something.

Abortion is not a 'business'

- The Washington Times

It's a tad tinny-eared for 180 or so leading company executives to get together and sign a letter in The New York Times to say America's emerging abortion protections for the unborn are "bad for business." Yes? It's sort of in the vein of saying border laws were bad for Pablo Escobar's business.

In a Feb. 12, 2014, file photo, Rep. Steve Hurst, R-Munford, watches the discussion on the House floor in the Alabama Statehouse in Montgomery, Ala. Alabama lawmakers have approved legislation that would require certain sex offenders to be chemically castrated before being released on parole. The Alabama bill, sponsored by Mr. Hurst, would require sex offenders whose crimes involved children younger than 13 to receive the medication before being released from prison on parole. They would then be required to continue the medication until a judge decided they could stop. (Mickey Welsh/Montgomery Advertiser via AP)

Alabama stands tall for the child with new castration law

- The Washington Times

Alabama's Republican governor, Kay Ivey, just signed into law a measure that allows the state to chemically castrate certain child sex offenders as a condition of their paroles. As imagined, the American Civil Liberties Union is aghast. But this is a good thing. The message is: Children matter.

Male masquerading as female steals another female trophy

- The Washington Times

This weekend, yet another male -- defined as an individual who was assigned by God at birth as a boy, not a girl, the only other sex option that exists -- took home the top place trophy for his competition in the female hurdler event. The political powers expect this male to be called a female, as he wishes. But that would be a lie.

New York Times delusion: We're 'in no way anti-Trump'

- The Washington Times

One of the editors for The New York Times, Deputy Managing Editor Rebecca Blumenstein, said at a FT Future of News event -- the FT for its sponsor, the Financial Times -- that no way, no how is her Gray Lady paper unfairly biased against President Donald Trump. Delusional? Methinks so.

George Will can keep his GOP 'cult' -- we'll take Trump

- The Washington Times

Perennial anti-President Donald Trumper and prolific writer George Will has penned a new book, "The Conservative Sensibility" -- and guess what: It's about the dire direction the Republican Party has taken post-Trump. Once again, Will's off base, off mark, off the reservation.
