Minnesota Republicans attacked in streets show true colors of left

- The Washington Times

A couple of campaigning Minnesota Republicans who were attacked in public -- one at a restaurant, the other when she asked why he kicked away her political sign -- aren't incidences of violence that simply show the signs of heated political times. They go deeper than that. They show the pure evil that's driving the Democratic Party.

'First Man' -- no surprise here -- falls short of ticket sales

- The Washington Times

"First Man," the movie that was supposed to showcase the historical greatness of the first man to walk the moon, Neil Armstrong -- but that omitted the triumphant and patriotic planting of the flag of record from the very country that made this greatness possible, America -- has suffered a bit of a red face with its opening weekend ticket sales. Sales were projected at $21 million but came in short, at $16.5 million.

Elizabeth Warren, the BoSox Bill Buckner pariah of politics

- The Washington Times

Elizabeth Warren, who took the puzzling step of announcing her DNA test results showing she was less Native American than most European Americans, has now come under fire from the Cherokee Nation. And how rightly so. Warren has become to politics what Bill Buckner has been to Red Sox fans for decades -- a pariah.

Comedian Joy Behar told her audience on ABC's "The View" that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resorts to "whataboutism" when asked about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Oct. 15, 2018. (Image: ABC, "The View" screenshot)

Even Joy Behar of 'The View' thinks Hillary Clinton's full of it

- The Washington Times

By now, everybody's heard about Hillary Clinton's denial that hubby Bill abused his presidential power by having an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and denial that he should have stepped aside. Shockingly, even Joy Behar of "The View," thinks Hillary's gone out on a lonely limb to defend her husband with this.

Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and their shocking mocking of Tucker Carlson

- The Washington Times

CNN's Don Lemon and CNN's Chris Cuomo engaged in some mean-spirited banter about Fox's Tucker Carlson during a recent televised spot, showing in 42 short seconds just why they're the worst of the worst -- why nobody with an ounce of intellect takes the mainstream media serious any more. CNN: Painful to watch TV.

#MeToo ought to emphasize common sense, not just victimhood

- The Washington Times

#MeToo's an important crusade; sexual harassment, assault, attack are all blots on humanity, particularly against the female side of humanity, and ought to prosecuted to the fullest extent of applicable laws. But it'd be nice if #MeToo weren't simply a finger-point. It'd be nice if the campaign hit hard as an educational tool, as well.

Democrats' double standard on racism

- The Washington Times

Don Lemon, by another name, would be vilified by the left, fired by CNN and relegated to the scrap heap of has-been celebrity-ism. But Lemon furthers the left's narrative against the right -- the one that says President Donald Trump is racist. So he's safe.

Christine Blasey Ford's bogus 'bravery' award nomination

Christine Blasey Ford has been nominated for the University of North Carolina's highly esteemed alumna award for speaking publicly about the allegations of sexual assault she hurled then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's way. What a bogus award -- what a bogus nomination.

Kavanaugh protesters anti-American, tilting toward mental illness

- The Washington Times

It's one thing to exercise a First Amendment right to assemble and petition the government for redress -- to "peaceably" gather together for a protest, as the exact language of this particular Bill of Right specifies. It's another thing entirely to chase senators through the halls of Congress.

Robot sex doll brothel slimes toward Texas

- The Washington Times

A brothel of robotic sex dolls set to open shop in Texas this month hit a snag after local authorities, fueled by a field of concerned petitioners, found a building inspection gig and put a temporary stop to KinkySDollS' plans. There's a blessing in disguise. Sometimes regulation really does work for good, yes?
