Democrats, RINOs alike dying to get rid of Donald Trump

- The Washington Times

Democrats, deep staters, RINOs, Black Lives Matter Marxist-types -- all these players and more are just days from breathing sighs of relief at the end of the "America First" administration, the one run by Donald Trump, the one run by the guy who outright, beginning to end, refused to play polite political behind-closed-door games.

China threat looms large at America's college campuses

- The Washington Times

America's college campuses, already corrupted by Marxist-loving professors bent on reliving their 1960s protest years, have now become even more dangerous places for the youth of the country. Nothing says "Tear Down These American Walls" like a pro-communist, properly propagandized youthful batch of college grads -- yes?

Anthony Fauci's 'lying' is hardly surprising

- The Washington Times

Sen. Marco Rubio just called out Anthony Fauci in a penned piece posted on Fox News as a lying liar who arrogantly used his position as the nation's top infectious disease bureaucrat to lie to the American people "in order to manipulate their behavior." It's a good piece; a crucial read. But readers, take note: Why be surprised?

California shows COVID-19 shutdowns are all about politics, power plays

- The Washington Times

California has just seen an uptick in coronavirus case counts. That's after the state's residents suffered some of the country's toughest crackdowns on freedoms. So in response to the uptick in coronavirus case counts, the Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, has -- get this -- issued more stay-at-home crackdowns. Come again?

Americans want work, not stimulus handouts

- The Washington Times

Six hundred dollars here, $2,000 there, government funding here, coronavirus stimulus there. As Congress and Capitol Hill grapple with the fate of final and ongoing relief funding amounts for Americans, the simple fact is this: These handouts are getting wearisome. Americans, true Americans, want to work.

Anthony Fauci blames states' rights for coronavirus spread

- The Washington Times

Dr. Anthony Fauci just told BBC Radio 4 that it's that pesky ol' 10th Amendment that has proven a real detriment to disease-fighting. He wants total federal clamp-downs and few-to-zero sovereign state COVID-19 decisions. Of course, he didn't explicitly say all this. He gave it the Fauci Treatment, which is to say the subtle sell.

Mike Pence doesn't faint, proving COVID-19 vaccine both safe and effective

- The Washington Times

Vice President Mike Pence took to live television to take the coronavirus vaccine in his arm -- and that's some darn good leadership right there, indeed. Moreover, he didn't faint. Even better leadership. 'Cause nothing says "don't follow me!" like a man trying to cut a "follow me, get the vaccine" public health spot who then faints. Like that nurse did in Tennessee.

Pennsylvania face mask mandates failed

Democrat Gov. Jay Inslee poised to buck teachers' unions

- The Washington Times

Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, just announced that he wants his state of Washington to open schools for in-person instruction, COVID-19 case counts be danged. Well, case counts almost be danged. In these coronavirus shut-down times, it's practically political blasphemy for a Democrat to acknowledge the failures of online learning.

Barack Obama, a boring boor who can't stop condemning conservatives

- The Washington Times

Former President Barack Obama just said that Republicans suck, the Republican Party sucks, all the Republicans in America suck, and that the only smart people in the nation, nay the world, are Democrats and progressives and progressive Democrats. Not in so many words, of course. But it was implied. What a boor. And a bore.

Anthony Fauci the humanist demands stay-at-home for Christ's birthday

Give up church, you mean?

China and its 'global climate governance' plan

- The Washington Times

China's Xi Jinping just said that "COVID-19 is triggering deep reflections on the relationship between man and nature" -- so much so that the idea of "global climate governance" is becoming widely accepted. Read the tea leaves. He's talking about global governance via a two-punch fright fight called climate change and COVID-19.

The news about Karen Pence's teaching job at a Christian school in northern Virginia that lists "homosexual or lesbian sexual activity" as among the disqualifying criteria for prospective employees, was quickly followed by debate over the behavior of boys from this school during a January 2019 visit to Washington. While opinions varied widely as to whether the boys had behaved badly, that incident further fueled debate over faith-based schools and the world view of their students.

Christian schools poised for persecution

- The Washington Times

The Association of Christian Schools International just surveyed 730 faith-based facilities about their COVID-19 responses and found that "the vast majority of Christian schools delivered on their promise to reopen in person [this fall] and to do so safely and comprehensively." This makes them Public Enemy Number One to Democrats.

Bill Gates vows COVID-19 tyranny 'til 2022

Bill Gates, the guy who turned in his Microsoft credentials for a cereal box medical degree that allows him to tell you and me to stay home due to a virus, now tells that you and me will have to stay home until, umm, let's see, 2022. Or so. Tyranny 'til 2022 -- learn it. Live it. Love it. Put it on a bumper sticker and drive it.

Virginia COVID-19 shutdown is a total farce

- The Washington Times

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam just issued new coronavirus-tied restrictions that include curfews, tighter mask mandates and more restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings -- supposedly because science tells him this is the right thing to do for citizens' safety. Don't believe it. The new shutdowns are based on lies and deceptions.

Thomas Jefferson is being slandered

- The Washington Times

Falls Church, Virginia, school board officials, citing slavery, just voted to remove the name of Thomas Jefferson from an elementary school, despite the fact the vast majority of citizens were opposed to the idea. Yet another example of ignorance and radical leftism winning a cultural battle.
