- The Washington Times

Jim Jordan hammers Dr. Fauci for favoritism in COVID-19 science

- The Washington Times

Rep. Jim Jordan asked NIAID Director Anthony Fauci a dozen different ways and a dozen different times to explain why angry protesters could safely gather but peaceful church-goers could not -- and a dozen different ways, a dozen different times, the doctor dodged. And that is why the American people do not trust the COVID-19 crackdowns.

- The Washington Times

McDonald's CEO Chris Kempczinski, in an interview on CBS, said customers who don't wear face masks inside the restaurant risk having police called to arrest them. And then he did that old Marxist propaganda thing and said for safety's sake, "we also ask our customers to wear masks." Screw McDonald's.

Teachers' unions shamefully exploit COVID-19 to shutter schools

- The Washington Times

Public schools in the District of Columbia just announced that all students will be doing the stay-at-home virtual study thing when the year begins. D.C. is not alone in this. For shame. These virtual classes have virtually nothing to do with protecting from the coronavirus and everything to do with scoring wins for the teachers' unions.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, citing 'mucosa,' now wants goggles, face shields

Chief Justice John Roberts is a shameful secular shill

- The Washington Times

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joined with the liberal wing of the Supreme Court to rule, in essence, that casinos and restaurants have more freedom to operate than churches -- an astonishing unconstitutional and un-American finding, given the roots of this nation as one conceived in the quest for religious freedom.

Louie Gohmert raises valid point in call to rename Democratic Party

- The Washington Times

Rep. Louie Gohmert, Republican from Texas, introduced a resolution that would ban the Democratic Party, among other organizations, based on historical truths about the left's embrace of racism and blatant support of slavery. It's a resolution that yes, is eye-widening -- but at least it strikes the right spirit. He raises some good points.

China is killing America

A handful of conservatives just asked President Donald Trump to keep in place a Roadless Rule that prevents loggers from tapping into Alaska's Tongass National Forest. At first blush, this seems an environmental issue. But it's really a question about China and at what point America puts a stop to communist influences on U.S. soil.
