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 may be right: Hillary Clinton 'needs to be in jail'

- The Washington Times

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.

Pete Buttigieg, hero to gays, enemy of truth

- The Washington Times

If Pete Buttigieg thinks the Bible is a book of personal interpretation, he's not just wrong. He's utterly blind. And by repeating that utterly blind message on his public platform, he's selling a deception to others.

Democrats' ridiculous race of giveaways

- The Washington Times

The larger the field of Democratic candidates becomes, the more Americans are treated to promises of free stuff. It's become a race of giveaways. Where will it end? Nobody knows. This is one merry-go-round that shows no signs of slowing.

Bill de Blasio, the SUV-driving man with the fault-finding Big Green plan

- The Washington Times

Mayor Bill de Blasio, in an appearance on "Morning Joe" on MSNBC to explain his decision to go Green New Deal in New York City and switch entirely to renewable energy within the next five years, faltered when pressed on his own gas-guzzling SUV use. And such is the way of the radical environmentalist: Do as I say, not as I do.

Obama, Clinton tip anti-Christian 'Easter worshippers' hats

Pete Buttigieg: Just another climate alarmist extraordinaire

- The Washington Times

Pete Buttigieg, the Democratic presidential hopeful from the city of South Bend, Indiana, called out climate change as the "greatest security issue of our time" during his recent announcement speech. And if we don't fix it, we'll all die. He's yet the latest from the left to use climate change for political advantage by claiming the same.

William Barr speaks -- and deaf, dumb Dems go: #ReleaseTheReport

- The Washington Times

No collusion. No obstruction. No evidence of trying to stymy the special counsel's investigation -- those are the nuts and bolts of Attorney General William Barr's determinations regarding President Donald Trump and what can now be cavalierly called That Russia Thang. Guess what else is a big "no"? The chance for the left to let this go.

A.I. that halts thieves -- before they steal

- The Washington Times

The customer is always right -- except when artificial intelligence says the customer isn't. That's sort of the message being sent by new technology aimed at catching crooks before they commit their crooked acts, anyway.

Bernie Sanders, a capitalism success story, still can't say how he'd pay

- The Washington Times

Bernie Sanders went on Fox News to talk about his presidential run and tell why his particular brand of socialism, the so-called democratic socialism, is best for America -- but once again failed to explain how he'd pay for Medicare for All, free college tuition and so on and so forth in a way that brings long-term economic stability.

De Blasio's police state measles order mucho un-presidential

- The Washington Times

So New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio may run for the presidency. But he's recently OK'd the forced vaccinations of everyone who lives within the geographical boundaries of four ZIP codes heavily infected with measles. Is this the type of police state governance that belongs in the White House? No. Heck no. And no again.

Medicare for All terrible, deceptive and un-American

- The Washington Times

America was founded on principles of limited government and individual freedom, where rights come from God, not government. Then came the left's message that health care is a right, a basic human right, and slash went the Constitution. Medicare for All, as Sen. Bernie Sanders is pushing, is about as un-American as policy can come.

Julian Assange's U.S. charges a 'say what?' moment

- The Washington Times

Let's hold the phone on the conviction and sentencing of Julian Assange for a moment. Exactly what did Assange do that, say, journalists protected by credentials from big corporate media entities don't commonly do during the course of pulling threads of information from their sources?

Texas Republican's crazy anti-abortion bill

- The Washington Times

A Texas Republican has re-introduced a bill that would criminalize and ban abortion and classify it as homicide, opening doors for women who terminate their pregnancies to face imprisonment and even sentences of death. And their little abortion doctors, too. Wow. There's pro-life. And then there's this: Crazy pro-life.
