Corporate censors truly are 'threat to democracy'

- The Washington Times

A Baltimore news anchor, Mary Bubala, was just fired after asking an interview guest, on live WJZ-TV, if it were time for the city to see "a different kind of leadership," given the beleaguered status of its last three mayors.

- The Washington Times

The Twitter spat of Sen. Rick Scott and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez escalated over the last 24 hours and honestly, if scorecards are being kept -- the socialist from New York just needs to go home. It's not even Scott, 1, Ocasio-Cortez zero. It's not even that close.

Godless environmentalism at the U.N.

Congressman Jody Hice, bravest man in politics

- The Washington Times

Rep. Jody Hice isn't that well-known outside of his Georgia district, outside of his circle of Republican contemporaries, or on the national media circuit frequented by so many of the politicking class. But he should be. Hice is an example of what makes America great.

Founders rolling in graves over Facebook bans

- The Washington Times

Facebook, much to the glee of the far left, banned Infowars top dog Alex Jones permanently from posting on its social media site. Likewise, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan -- only this time, much to the glee of the ideological right. But caution flags should be waving. As founders warned: Free speech is key to a free society.

Trump's approval hikes, amid all the crap

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump's approval rating, just polled at 43 percent, is the highest for two years. That, amid all the political hit jobs, media attacks and leftist anti-White House rants. And all the campaigning Democrats go -- d'oh!

William Barr, the Democrats' lynchpin to Trump

- The Washington Times

The Washington Post published an opinion piece titled, "If William Barr refuses to testify, he should be impeached." Yes, let's impeach him. Impeach 'em all. Why not?

Bernie Sanders, socialist hypocrite (not to be redundant)

- The Washington Times

Socialists are almost always hypocrites because they almost always think they know better than the average bear and almost always tell others to do what they themselves refuse to do. Enter millionaire Bernie Sanders who wants Disney to give its "Avengers" profits to company workers who are paid on the lower scale. You first, Bernie.

The New York Times and its anti-Semitism problem

- The Washington Times

What the heck is going on at The New York Times? That's certainly a question worthy of answering. Anti-Semitism much?

- The Washington Times

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist lawmaker from New York, lashed out at Kellyanne Conway on Twitter, accusing the White House counselor to the president of unfairly and unreasonably questioning her Christian faith on national television.

Joe Scarborough's shameful attack on Franklin Graham

- The Washington Times

Joe Scarborough of MSNBC fame may need ratings. But attacking Franklin Graham and the evangelist's Christian views should be the red line -- and not the fake and flimsy type of red line Barack Obama drew with Syria's unleashing of chemical weapons on its own people, either. A real one.

Even Hillary Clinton waves caution flag on impeachment

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton, in an op-ed published in The Washington Post, urged her fellow Democrats to find a better path to the White House and full congressional domination than simply pressing for impeach, impeach, impeach.

Rush Limbaugh, on "The Story" on Fox News with Martha MacCallum, said it's not President Donald Trump who has anything to worry about when it comes to the whole Russia investigation thing -- it's Hillary Clinton. She should be in jail, Limbaugh said. And a whole world of political watchers go -- absolutely.
