America wins when Joe Biden loses

- The Washington Times

President Joe Biden has had a very bad week. That means America, at least the part of America that still believes in individual liberties and the Constitution, have had a very good week.

Biden's voting-law push is fearmongering

The election-reform furor seems like much ado about nothing ("Biden heads to Georgia to escalate partisan fight over U.S. election laws," Web, Jan. 11). The push by the Biden administration and civil rights groups to extend polling-place hours and locations and even make voting day a federal holiday (for something that takes on average a couple of hours) is ridiculous.

Fauci's the real moron

"Hot mic catches Dr. Fauci calling GOP senator 'moron'" (Web, Jan. 11) might actually be more indicative of self-reflection on Fauci's part. The media has generally failed to take Fauci to task for his longtime support of gain-of-function experimentation intended to make pathogens more infectious in humans. Nevertheless, writing for the American Society for Microbiology in 2012, Fauci defended such research, even at the risk that an experiment "leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic," writing: "Scientists working in this field might say -- as indeed I have said -- that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks." Regardless of the exact and circuitous dispersal of U.S. funds, Fauci allowed U.S. funds to go to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which was known for gain-of-function testing under less-than-optimal microbial containment.

So much for uniting the country

During President Biden's inauguration speech last January he promised to unite the country. He said, "We can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature. For without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury." Yet on Tuesday he flew down to Georgia and gave a dishonest demagogue's speech, trying to sell to the American people his radical federal takeover of our elections.
