Left's attempts have faltered

Americans are tuning out the latest attempt by Democrats to turn supporters of the president away from his assured re-election. The team of Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler and Chuck Schumer reinforce what Americans already know: The Democratic Party is now entirely off the rails with very little chance for redemption or recovery.

BOOK REVIEW: 'The New Class War'

In what well may be an understatement, Professor Sean Wilentz characterizes Michael Lind as "One of those wonderfully unpredictable writers who does not allow his allegiances to overrule his ideas."

Democrats, Iran and the $3 million bounty for Trump's head

- The Washington Times

One of Iran's lawmakers, Ahmad Hamzeh, said in a session of his country's parliament that he'll pay $3 million to anyone who can kill President Donald Trump. Watch for it, wait for it, it won't be long before Democrats go: Well, Trump brought this on himself by pulling America from the Iran nuclear treaty.

Trump, amid radical environmentalists, vows to conserve 'God's creation'

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump, speaking in Davos, said the United States will join a One Trillion Trees Initiative aimed at better managing and growing and protecting forestry. Even this isn't likely to sooth the savage beasts called Radical Environmentalists who populated the forum, though. Why not? Trump said he'd do it in God's name.

The benefits and mysteries of sleep

America needs a nap. Everybody's biology is different -- both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, for instance, barely sleep, as the president's late night and early morning tweets indicate -- but as a rule of thumb, most people should get about eight hours of shut-eye a night. But fewer and fewer people in our harried, busy country are hitting the target, or really even coming close.

Trump right on Iran

Taking out Qassem Soleimani was brilliant and long-overdue action by President Trump. The president is right not to brief Congress on top-secret sources and methods in order to protect the ability to take such an action again. Soleimani was a commander in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and was planning new attacks. He had the blood of many Americans and Muslims on his hands while serving from 1996 until his death in 2020 and was the commander of the Quds Force.

GAO finding no surprise

Recently, the Government Accountability Office, a component of Congress, found President Trump guilty of withholding funds from the Ukrainians ("Trump says GAO is part of 'the Swamp' after watchdog finds he broke law on Ukraine aid," Web, Jan. 17). Let's be clear: The GAO is a deep-state creature composed of bureaucrats who are left-wing sympathizers and anti-Trumpers.
