Devin Patrick Kelley, the dead shooting suspect in the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs massacre, has now been named by four women as a rapist and sexual harasser. The more this story comes to light -- the more America learns about Kelley -- the more it becomes evident this guy just slipped through society's cracks.

Virginia: Ed Gillespie not a Donald Trump referendum

- The Washington Times

Ed Gillespie, Virginia's newest losing governor wanna-be -- who went down in flames to Democrat Ralph Northam -- will be talked about for days as the Voter Referendum on President Donald Trump. But his loss has less to do with Trump and more to do with Virginia's shifting demographics -- with Virginia's proximity to Big Government jobs.

James Woods -- bam! Take that, Barack Obama

Barack Obama, in a tweet aimed at furthering his gun control designs, reacted to the horrific murders of Texas church-goers by calling for God to bring on gun control. Leave it to Hollywood's James Woods to slap back that silly.

Democrat Ted Lieu snubs Texas victims for pretend angst

- The Washington Times

The Democratic Party's Ted Lieu, lawmaker from California, said he was so upset at the recent shootings of Texas church-goers that he couldn't even stand to stay on the House floor to take part in the somber moment of silence. He walked out. That's right -- he took his sorry, grandstanding, self-aggrandizing self and left the floor, mid-moment of silence.

Jake Tapper, CNN's finest, defends 'Allahu akbar' as 'beautiful'

- The Washington Times

Jake Tapper, of CNN fame, spoke in the aftermath of the terror attack in New York City by saying -- get this -- that the phrase "Allahu akbar," reportedly uttered by the suspected terrorist, is actually a phrase of beauty, in the right circumstances. Yes -- and in that vein, so was Heil Hitler, depending on the source and context of the utterance.

Muslims to soon beat out Jews in U.S. population

- The Washington Times

There are about 3.35 million Muslims in the United States right now, according to recent Pew Research Center's Factank figures. But by 2050, that particular population is projected to grow -- from about 1 percent of the U.S. population to about 2.1 percent. If it does, that means America will be home to more Muslims than Jews. Just something to think about, post New York City terror attack -- a terror attack that we now know was committed by a radicalized Muslim who professed allegiance to ISIS.

Donald Trump: 'Enough!' No more ISIS in America

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump reacted to the terror truck attack in New York City with a stiff pledge to keep ISIS out of this country. He also slammed political correctness, a not-so-thinly veiled shot at the left that's constantly devalued and derided his border controls. Can we get an amen from the Democratic Party's many amnesty lovers, please?

Fox News' Tucker Carlson and the curious Podesta 'snarling legal threat'

- The Washington Times

As Alice in Wonderland might say -- the trail of Robert Mueller's dog-sniffing into President Donald Trump-Russia collusion allegations keeps growing curiouser and curiouser. The latest is Fox News host Tucker Carlson said his cable network's reporting on the ties of the Podesta Group with Russia grew so hot that an attorney for Tony Podesta sent a "snarling legal threat." Transparency, anyone?

Hillary Clinton, breathing easy now, hints at Trump impeachment

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton may not be running for any particular political seat right now, but she sure does know how to sling a political punch -- and boy, is she taking advantage of this Paul Manafort indictment thing. She's like that kid that hangs with the playground bully, coming in after the beating's been administered with a sharp kick to the guy on the ground, a "take that" jab when the guy's rendered defenseless.

Houston Texans find new fake cause to kneel

- The Washington Times

After months of kneeling over the national anthem -- and in protest of supposed targeted police brutality against blacks -- football's finest in on-field showboating have finally found a new cause: offensiveness at their team owner's remarks. The possibilities of this type of protesting -- and by this type, it's meant, fabricated and fake -- are endless, it seems.
