Joe Biden's teeth took away all his political bite

- The Washington Times

If Joe Biden even had a chance in Thursday evening's debate, it was swallowed up in his on-air struggle with his teeth. Poor Joe. He thinks he's the heir apparent who simply has to show up and voila, all the ballots will waft gently to his feet. This was Hillary Clinton's mistake.

Beto O'Rourke hands GOP, NRA golden ticket

Thanks, Beto. "Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," he said, on television, on the Democratic Party debate stage, for all to hear and see. "We're not going to allow them to be used against fellow Americans anymore." It doesn't get any clearer than that.

Elizabeth Warren's gasp-worthy slap at the rich

- The Washington Times

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, on the stage and answering questions about her visions of health care, slipped in a rather significant -- and somber -- remark about the rich in this country that goes to the heart of socialist delusion. She said, in essence: the rich don't work. The rich don't work hard.

Muslim kids in Philly dance to chopping heads jihad song -- and we still don't know why

- The Washington Times

In April, a group of kids at the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia were captured on camera dancing and lip-syncing to a happy little ditty of chopping heads and leading armies of Allah and torturing enemies and other Islamic political and religious principles. And the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations announced an investigation. Investigation indeed. Now: Where are the results?

Democratic debates offer good drinking games

- The Washington Times

Perhaps the most interesting aspect that's emerged about the Democrats' third debate has nothing to do with candidates or policy, and everything to do with an email ABC sent to the party, warning the FCC frowns on televised drops of f-bombs and the like. And that, of course, opens doors wide to drinking game opportunities.

Marianne Williamson's hot mic a-ha moment

- The Washington Times

Democratic presidential contender Marianne Williamson let slip during a hot mic moment in her interview on "America This Week" with host Eric Bolling that conservatives -- and gasp, even Fox News conservatives -- were nicer to her than the leftists and liberals in her own political camp. This is such a significant a-ha moment.

- The Washington Times

Hollywood girl-next-door favorite Jennifer Aniston, billed on this month's cover of InStyle as "Babe Eternal," has ignited a social media firestorm over her retouched magazine photographed face among those who think she looks too black for her little white good.

Pete Buttigieg's twisted Bible teaching on abortion

- The Washington Times

Mayor Pete Buttigieg ought to crack open the Bible, turn to Psalm 139, and read how God formed humans "fearfully and wonderfully" -- and after, take a second look at his views on abortion and repent, said his brother-in-law, Rhyan Glezman, an evangelical pastor from Michigan, on Fox News. Good advice.

New York Times glorifies kiddie drag queens

- The Washington Times

The New York Times just published a story that was headlined, "Sashaying Their Way Through Youth" and billed for readers to "[m]eet the rising drag stars of America. They're tweens."

Rashida Tlaib's 'political revolution' is treason masked as justice

- The Washington Times

Rep. Rashida Tlaib called for a complete transformation of America's government -- a "political revolution" and "economic" overhaul to change the capitalistic system and, as she framed it, to put the people, not the corporations, back in power. This is treasonous. It's treason wrapped in a social justice ribbon.

Google, Facebook investigations bound to lead nowhere

- The Washington Times

Free-market purists may not like it, but when it comes to reeling in Google and Facebook and putting them in their conservative censoring places, recently announced antitrust investigations may prove the hook. Then again, maybe not. It's not like we've not been down this investigative road before.

Democrats seize on LOST-like 'Blue New Deal' to control oceans

- The Washington Times

If you thought the Green New Deal was bad enough, wait. Democrats, led by Sen.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's now-famous Green New Deal imposed over land.

Sharpie-gate is the new Russia

- The Washington Times

- The Washington Times

Jemele Hill, the ex-ESPN star who famously slammed President Trump as a "white supremacist" on Twitter, has a piece coming out in October in her new place of employment, The Atlantic -- and if hating on Caucasians is your thing, it won't disappoint. The title? This: "It's Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges."

Whoopi Goldberg actually makes a good point

- The Washington Times

Whoopi Goldberg -- yes, that Whoopi Goldberg, the same Whoopi Goldberg of "The View" fame who often-um-make-that-always trots out all the far-left talking points and feigns outrage at even the existence of conservatives -- actually came out in defense of, get this, supporters of President Donald Trump. Indirectly. But it still counts.

Walmart's gone weak in the knees on guns

- The Washington Times

Walmart's CEO has decided to stop selling handguns and certain types of ammunition, and has also called on customers to please, please, please stop openly carrying their firearms. Yep. Walmart's gone weak-kneed. As if stopping legal gun buyers and legal firearms' carriers would stop gun-related crimes in its tracks.
