Scary times for free speech

- The Washington Times

Ben Shapiro just scored what today is becoming a major win -- a podium at a major university where police only had to make four protest arrests. Yes, that's sarcasm. It's also a sad commentary on the state of the First Amendment.

Antifa: Yes, the violence is necessary

- The Washington Times

Antifa thugs say their violence is necessary because their goals are aimed at fighting "Nazi" ideologies, and the ends therefore justify the means. The ends justify the means -- such a powerful persuader.

Trump, Pelosi, Schumer DACA deal no cause for alarm -- yet

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump reportedly has struck a DACA deal with Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi. And already, the left is crowing, the right is gasping, and the media is spinning madly. But let's lower the eyebrows for a moment and take a breath. This is hardly cause for conservative alarm.

Satanists and Planned Parenthood -- a match made in hell

- The Washington Times

Missouri has seen a resurgence of abortion clinics of late, thanks in large part to concerted pressures from Planned Parenthood, which sued -- successfully -- to overturn state laws requiring medical providers performing the procedure to be possessed of hospital admission privileges. And, thanks to the Satanic Temple.

Quack attack: 27 psychiatrists pen anti-Trump book

- The Washington Times

Real psychiatrists are probably squirming in their office chairs at this -- but 27 of their professional colleagues have come together to write a book about President Donald Trump. Surprise, surprise, they find: Trump's an "antisocial" idiot with "malignant narcissism," and he's going down -- big time. And this is such a surprise because Trump, as these quack analysts acknowledge, isn't even their patient.

Paul Ryan tips RINO: Nobody really wants a wall

Speaker Paul Ryan reportedly said during a private dinner earlier this year that nobody but nobody in Congress wanted a border wall -- well, nobody except "one member," Breitbart reported, citing a one-on-one with the former congressman, Tom Tancredo.

Christians beat FEMA, and in so doing, tame Big Government

- The Washington Times

Faith-based groups -- Christian nonprofits, specifically -- have been busy bees of late, providing more aid to hurricane victims than even FEMA, the federal agency that's supposed to swoop to the scenes of natural disasters, assess the situation and speed the recovery and rebuilding process. Just goes to show: Where charity exists, government is not needed.

Steve Bannon-CBS takeaway: Swamp creatures are winning

- The Washington Times

Steve Bannon, in an interview with Charlie Rose on "60 Minutes" on CBS, said elites in the Republican Party have been steadily working to "nullify" the results of the 2016 election, and cast President Donald Trump to the side. It doesn't get any clearer -- or more honest -- than that.
