Rashida Tlaib's 'political revolution' is treason masked as justice

- The Washington Times

Rep. Rashida Tlaib called for a complete transformation of America's government -- a "political revolution" and "economic" overhaul to change the capitalistic system and, as she framed it, to put the people, not the corporations, back in power. This is treasonous. It's treason wrapped in a social justice ribbon.

Google, Facebook investigations bound to lead nowhere

- The Washington Times

Free-market purists may not like it, but when it comes to reeling in Google and Facebook and putting them in their conservative censoring places, recently announced antitrust investigations may prove the hook. Then again, maybe not. It's not like we've not been down this investigative road before.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's now-famous Green New Deal imposed over land.

Sharpie-gate is the new Russia

- The Washington Times

Well move over Russia collusion, Russia obstruction of justice, Russia conspiracy. And move over race card, gender card and all that President Donald Trump hates the immigrants type of messaging. There's a new scandal that's seized Washington, D.C. It's called -- Sharpie-gate.

Jemele Hill, the ex-ESPN star who famously slammed President Trump as a "white supremacist" on Twitter, has a piece coming out in October in her new place of employment, The Atlantic -- and if hating on Caucasians is your thing, it won't disappoint. The title? This: "It's Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges."

Whoopi Goldberg actually makes a good point

- The Washington Times

Whoopi Goldberg -- yes, that Whoopi Goldberg, the same Whoopi Goldberg of "The View" fame who often-um-make-that-always trots out all the far-left talking points and feigns outrage at even the existence of conservatives -- actually came out in defense of, get this, supporters of President Donald Trump. Indirectly. But it still counts.

Walmart's gone weak in the knees on guns

- The Washington Times

Walmart's CEO has decided to stop selling handguns and certain types of ammunition, and has also called on customers to please, please, please stop openly carrying their firearms. Yep.

U.K. boy blinded by bad eating is product of bad parenting

- The Washington Times

A teenager in the United Kingdom went deaf and blind because he ate nothing but potato chips, french fries, white bread, processed meat and similarly low-to-no nutrition junk foods, for more than a decade. This is the caretakers' fault. They're the ones, after all, who had the power of the purse when it came to food.

Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said he's "very concerned" about the "tech oligarchs" and the influence these left-leaning social media execs will have on the upcoming election -- on the whole state and fate of free speech, of conservative speech. And how right he is.

James Comey's smug skirt of spirit of law

- The Washington Times

A.I.'s lure of 12-hour work week a recipe for human disaster

- The Washington Times

Alibaba Chief Executive Jack Ma said at the World A.I. Conference in Shanghai that technology was moving along at a rapid enough clip that one day, humans could very well max their work week at 12 hours -- and moreover, they should. Easy there, Ma. Idle hands very often do lead to the devil's work.

Atheists slapped, as common sense, courage, come to court

- The Washington Times

A federal court ruled that a group of atheists demanding the right to deliver the invocation at the opening of legislative sessions in the Pennsylvania House are simply out of luck, and they'll have to take their secularist so-called prayers elsewhere. Finally. A court with courage to uphold the common sense aspect of the Constitution.
