Terry McAuliffe, Clinton money man, makes ludicrous stab at morals

- The Washington Times

Terry McAuliffe, the power broker of Bill Clintondom, was out and about this past weekend telling MSNBC news watchers how immorally and horribly his old presidential pal treated Monica Lewinsky. Well, isn't that special. But McAuliffe speaking of morals is like watching O.J. pull on a too-tight leather glove. Something is painfully amiss.

Iran's call to fight 'bullying' Trump a diplomatic boon for America

- The Washington Times

Iran has called on the countries of the world -- the ones that care, anyway -- to stand up to that big ol' bad bully Donald Trump and join forces to save the nuclear deal from the trash heap of U.S. history. Good. Now America can see clearly who's friend, who's enemy and who wants to play pussyfoot with a rogue, despotic nation over a principled, free America.

Samantha Bee, Keith Olbermann and a stunning shaming from CNN

- The Washington Times

CNN's Brooke Baldwin weighed in on the controversy surrounding comedian Samantha Bee's calling of Ivanka Trump a "feckless c--t" by slamming -- get this -- Bee. And then she slammed the vile Keith Olbermann. And the left, for hypocrisy. It was a stunning slap-down, in and of itself. But it was all the more eye-opening given Baldwin's affiliation with mainstream media.

Donald Trump ought to endorse Ann Romney for Senate

- The Washington Times

Mitt Romney, failed presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts, finally revealed the name of the person he selected for commander-in-chief at the ballot boxes in 2016 -- his wife. WTFreak. This is everything conservatives hate about the Republican Party and the elitism of establishment-minded politicos.

George Soros, buying a district attorney near you

Trump is to Barr like Obama is to Kathy Griffin

- The Washington Times

Roseanne Barr mistakenly fired off a racist tweet aimed at Valerie Jarrett and now the left is crowing, "See? See? This is what happens when you have Donald Trump in the White House." Stuff and nonsense. Trump is not to blame for Barr -- just as Barack Obama, say, can't be faulted for Kathy Griffin.

Chelsea Clinton, a perfect example of why left is Not Real American

- The Washington Times

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of the president who was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, nonetheless found the nerve to tell an overseas newspaper, The Guardian, that Donald Trump is not only less than presidential -- but he's also less than American. He's not a real American, she suggested.

God-given, not government granted, guides 2nd Amendment

- The Washington Times

Patrick Ryan, a Democrat running for Congress in New York, told a CNN audience that one of his political platforms is to put into effect strict limits on the Second Amendment because the First Amendment comes with limits, so why not the second, as well? Well, sorry, Mr. Ryan. The Second Amendment, like the First, is God-given, not government granted.

A husband in Oregon recently received a strange telephone call from his boss that went like this: Unplug your Alexa. You're being hacked. Except he wasn't being hacked. His Amazon Echo device had actually recorded conversations between the man and his wife, and then sent them along to the man's boss as audio file attachments.

FDA's pitiful, politicized press to pull baby teething meds from market

- The Washington Times

The Food and Drug Administration issued parents some stern warnings about teething medicines for their babies, and simultaneously told manufacturers and retailers that if they didn't "voluntarily" stop selling the product to the tiny toddler demographic, they would face legal action from the feds. Voluntary compliance -- gotta love the federal definition of that, yes?

Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, has sparked some players' union backlash by announcing those who want to bend knees during this season's game-time playing of the national anthem may do so -- but from the locker room, not the field. But really, Goodell got it right. Finally.

Take a memo, Democrats and soft-on-border-control Republicans.

James Woods faults Dems for school insecurity

Donald Trump: 'Drain the Swamp!' And he is

President Donald Trump is poised to officially demand a federal investigation into whether the Department of Justice "infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes," as he put it. And that means, once again, he is putting his mockers to shame.

Trump doubles down on MS-13 as 'animals'
