Jeb Bush rallies Republicans to scold Trump on Russia

- The Washington Times

Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites -- for not publicly condemning Trump.

Anthony Scaramucci, new White House communications director, apparently ain't playing. When asked by CBS "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson what would happen to leakers and whistleblowers under Scaramucci's watch, the newbie fired off this reply: "They're going to get fired." Good.

John McCain: In cancer, he unites

- The Washington Times

Now, even those who can't stand his politics -- who've fought him tooth and nail over policy, legislation, RINO-ism and globalism -- wish him well, hope for the best and send him prayers. This is how God works: through struggles, a light.

Rand Paul, atop white horse, rescues Obamacare PR

- The Washington Times

Republicans are having a head-hanging moment, to be sure, on Obamacare. So it's with no small measure of relief that Sen. Rand Paul has seemingly rode in on a white horse, to give the party a new public relations message on Obamacare that keeps Republicans afloat.

Kamala Harris: Eric Holder in a skirt

- The Washington Times

Democrats are in a tizzy about their latest and brightest prospect for the 2020 White House -- Kamala Harris, the senator from California. Make way for the next social justice warrior. Harris, a la Eric Holder, a la Barack Obama, is a far leftist with a vision of America as an inherently racist, unjust, unfair, misogynist nation.

President Donald Trump may be doing a lot of good for America, particularly in terms of putting the nation first on the international stage and its citizens, not special interests, first in the domestic arena. But on asset forfeiture laws, this White House is wrong. Dead wrong, completely wrong, egregiously wrong.

The Jenner formerly known as Bruce, but name-changed to Caitlyn, is on a mission to change the Republican Party and make its members more sensitive to LGBT issues. That's fine and dandy. But sensitive shouldn't mean lying.
