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.

Al Gore's frowny face: 'I was wrong' on Trump

- The Washington Times

Al "Hanging Chad-Man' Gore, former failed presidential candidate and former -- equally as failed, some would say -- vice president, has come crawling out of his air conditioned mansion to pick up his climate change manual once again and chide President Donald Trump on national television.

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.

Caitlyn Jenner on mission to sensitize GOP

Delta's ticked -- but Ann Coulter's right

Franklin Graham's right -- 'socialized medicine' sucks

- The Washington Times

Worldwide evangelist Franklin Graham cut to the chase about the Charlie Gard vs. Government life-and-death case that's being played out in U.K. courts right now, putting it plainly that parents ought to have the final say over their infants' health care -- not bottom-line bureaucrats feeding into their socialist system. In other words: Socialized medical care sucks.
