Second Amendment sanctuaries

Some on the left are angry, if not apoplectic, that conservatives are turning the tables on them and co-opting one of their own tactics against liberal policies. But turnabout, as they say, is fair play: Self-styled "progressives," it seems, aren't the only ones who can unilaterally decide which laws they will or will not enforce and/or comply with.

Rude tweets not "high crimes"

Why the rush for impeachment ("Dems scrambling for impeachment vote by Christmas: 'We must move swiftly'" Web, Dec. 4) ? Is the weight of President Trump's "high crimes" about to sink the republic? Or are Democrats beginning to comprehend that the impeachment circus, directed by manifestly partisan politicians, is a self-made trap?

"Medicare for All." The disappearance of private health insurance. A Planned Parenthood pink scarf at her inauguration. An end to the Electoral College. These are just some of the promises daffy Sen. Elizabeth Warren is bringing to the presidential table. Merry Christmas. Warren's making out her loon list of giveaways.

A naughty wish for impeachment

'Tis the season for holiday hopes, but Democrats in Washington may have gotten too greedy with their political wish list. Just as leaders of Congress' blue party eagerly launched their closing arguments in favor of impeaching President Trump for allegedly wielding the nation's foreign policy apparatus for personal gain, TVs from coast to coast displayed the president rocking the NATO summit in London for the good of the red, white and blue.
