Barack Obama, the real king of the quid pro quo

- The Washington Times

Funny how after eight years of Barack Obama quid pro quo-ing here, there and everywhere, it's only now Democrats care. It's only with President Donald Trump that they suddenly see corruption in politics, even when no corruption in politics exists.

Trump calls coyotes 'vicious' -- Impeach!

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump, in a speech before the United Nations, called out those who smuggle illegals into America -- coyotes, as they're colloquially known -- as "vicious" individuals, bent on taking advantage both financially and sexually of the poor and downtrodden. And now he must be impeached.

Bill Weld moves impeachment bar -- to 'death'

- The Washington Times

Bill Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts who's making a run against President Donald Trump for the Republican ticket to the White House, managed to move the old impeachment call a bit further down the delusion scale by reminding MSNBC audiences that the punishment for treason is "death." Go big or go home, right?

Trump's got his U.N. priorities straight

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump has decided that instead of sitting through yet another -- yawn -- climate change meeting at the United Nations, he's going to discuss something that really matters, that's truly important, that's actually crucial to the world at-large: religious freedom. You go Trump. This is what matters.

U.N. staff call on U.N. to practice what it climate preaches

- The Washington Times

More than 2,000 employees of the United Nations have called on their own U.N. bosses to practice what they preach when it comes to the environment and reduce their own carbon footprints. Gasp. Might that mean the global elite would have to give up their cushy-albeit-carbon-heavy private jet travels? Indeed.

Michael Savage's 'hot dog summit' with Trump

- The Washington Times

Move over, beer summit. This president, Donald Trump, doesn't drink. What he does do is eat hot dogs -- and aboard Air Force One, he shared one with none other than talk radio icon Michael Savage. As far as memories go, that's a pretty cool one.

Democrats, on Brett Kavanaugh, trying to frighten future judicial picks

- The Washington Times

Here's a question: If President Donald Trump nominated you to the U.S. Supreme Court -- or to any high-ranking judicial office, for that matter -- would you seize the moment and say yes? After watching the takedown of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, both Part One and now, the emerging Part Two, no doubt for many, the answer would be no thanks.

At least two Democratic presidential candidates, Kamala Harris and Kamala Harris are calling for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in the face of a new, uninvestigated, allegation of sexual impropriety when he was in college.

Brett Kavanaugh impeachment call a grotesque smear

- The Washington Times

Two reporters for The New York Times wrote that one of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's former Yale classmate allegedly saw him "with his pants down" at a college party. And that was all campaigning Democrats needed. Away they went; impeachment, they cried.

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

- The Washington Times

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.

Jennifer Aniston's InStyle 'blackface' brouhaha

- 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. Honestly, this is one brouhaha that doesn't need to be.

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.
