Jeff Sessions: Sanctuary cities may lose more than funding

- The Washington Times

Jeff Sessions said sanctuary cities may face more backlash from the administration than a loss of funding -- that the White House is considering other punitive measures, as well. Good. No punishment is too small for sanctuary cities that go out of their way to help the criminal element.

Trump's mental fitness under snarky media attack

- The Washington Times

The snarky mainstream media, apparently tiring of Russia and frustrated over Devin Nunes' refusal to remove himself from his House Intelligence Committee chairmanship, has decided to revisit an issue that's lagged a bit -- the notion of President Donald Trump's mental fitness.

North Carolina goes soft on bathroom safety

- The Washington Times

Enough with the bathrooms already. Fact is: No amount of legislation can change a boy into a girl, and a girl into a boy.

Luis Gutierrez, Democrat from Illinois, has gone the proverbial off the reservation -- out to lunch, into the Twilight Zone, off his rocker, what have you -- in a Wednesday morning CNN "New Day" defense of sanctuary cities.

Maxine Waters likens anti-Trump fight to patriotism

- The Washington Times

Rep. Maxine Waters, who's been heading up the call to impeach President Donald Trump for weeks, now has a new way of patting the anti-administration movement on the head and cajoling them along: by telling them they're true patriots. The hits do keep on coming with Waters, don't they?
