Hey Barack Obama, Donald Trump's got your pen and phone

- The Washington Times

With one quick flick of the writing hand wrist, President Donald Trump could very well put an end to one of America's most contentious, most divisive immigration practices -- anchor babies. Well, well, well, it's like the era of Barack Obama coming to bite Democrats in the butt, now isn't it?

Lester Holt's whiteface, Jimmy Kimmel's blackface -- it's all good for liberals

- The Washington Times

Megyn Kelly came under fire by her NBC bosses for saying that blackface, during her growing up years, was barely a blink on the politically correct radar during Halloween time, and for questioning why a white woman who darkened her face while wearing a Diana Ross costume was assumed to be racist. But it's OK for NBC's nighttime anchor Lester Holt to wear a whiteface to mimic British pop star Susan Boyle?

Megyn Kelly, a victim of despicable, deceptive P.C. police

- The Washington Times

This is not a defense of Megyn Kelly. This is a defense of sanity. If you've not watched the six-minute or so segment that's the heart and soul of what's being used to show Kelly as a racist, stop reading, go back and watch -- because the headlines and stories and criticisms that have come like pelting hail upon her head have little to do with truth and everything to do with misinformation.

Christians can indeed close borders and still be biblical

- The Washington Times

Christians, listen up: It's quite OK to advocate for tough border controls. It's quite OK to look at this caravan of thousands of people now walking from points south toward America's borders and say to them, "hey, you're not a citizen, you don't have the right to come to this country." Go ahead; God won't get angry.

Clinton, Obama, Soros and CNN mailings mark trail to civil war

- The Washington Times

Federal authorities are investigating suspicious packages that were just sent to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- and this is news that comes the same week it was reported a suspicious package containing a suspected bomb was sent to the residence of George Soros. And so the country moves a step closer to civil war.

Thousands of Central American migrants resumed an arduous trek toward the U.S. border Monday, with many bristling at suggestions there could be terrorists among them and saying the caravan is being used for political ends by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Caravan clash is coming -- and the left can't wait

- The Washington Times

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a televised press conference that the thousands of people walking from Central America to the United States would not be allowed to cross. No, not under any circumstances. And because he means it -- and because this long trail of unruly, unconcerned-with-law people mean to cross -- the end result, in the eyes of common sense, means a clash is coming.

Behind Trump's Saudi stall

- The Washington Times

President Trump appears to be stalling on what to do about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the day-to-day ruler of the fabulously rich and in some ways fabulously backward oil kingdom.

Robert Mueller's sinking Russian collusion ship

- The Washington Times

A curious report from Bloomberg and Zero Hedge that was then picked up by Rush Limbaugh puts special counsel Robert Mueller in an uncomfortable light -- one, in fact, that shifts investigative eyes his way and suggests his team may have improperly indicted a Russian company during his quest to tie President Donald Trump to collusion. Well, this is a twist in the Russian investigation the left wasn't exactly expecting, isn't it?

Transgenderism is a political figment, not biological truth

- The Washington Times

Transgenderism may be on its last legs due to President Donald Trump's reported decision to shutter the previous administration's policy of regarding boys as girls and girls as boys and pretending as if God-assigned sexes are as changeable as attire. It's about time we get back to the truth on this issue.

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.
