Bill tantamount to infanticide

According to "Judge issues mixed ruling in Virginia abortion law challenge" (Web, Sept. 30), U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson upheld the sections of the law requiring that a licensed physician perform an abortion; that the woman be given the option of viewing an ultrasound if she so desires; that she have the right to receive state-written information prior to signing informed-consent documents; and that there be a 24-hour waiting period from the time she decides to end her pregnancy and the actual abortion.

NBA losing money -- and well it should

- The Washington Times

The NBA's commissioner Adam Silver said that China had pressed for the firing of Rockets general manager Daryl Morey -- for the crime of publicly supporting freedom-fighting protesters in Hong Kong -- and that the league, as part of the fallout for siding with the reds over the red, white and blues, has been losing money.

Beware the left's lies

Communism is all about power and the elites who govern the peons. It uses a system of controls that strangles the little guys while the top prospers in power and wealth. It kills economic prosperity and creativity, and significantly dampens the morale of the masses. It controls all facets of society and is exceptionally strong once set in place. It uses deception, lies and manipulation to advance its cause.

Keep Malvo locked up

Life without parole may have been too lenient for Lee Boyd Malvo, who now seeks eligibility for release ("Several victims ask for mercy for Lee Boyd Malvo," Web, Ot. 15). In 2002 Malvo was the admitted 17-year-old trigger man in at least eight murders of persons he did not even know. He was no impulsive juvenile who killed during a single incident, nor was he the heedless sprayer of bullets into a crowd containing an intended target. He was a cold-blooded serial sniper who killed obvious innocents again and again over a period of six weeks, picking victims at random like a true terrorist. If not caught, Malvo would have continued killing indefinitely. Clearly, he learned nothing from repeated killings — except that he could apparently get away with them.

Barr takes issue with intolerant secularists

Attorney General William Barr kicked up a storm last weekend — by stating the obvious. In a speech delivered at Notre Dame University in South Bend, Indiana on Saturday, the attorney general pointed out that a rising tide of "militant secularism" is waging war on religious communities from coast to coast. Not content to live and let live, they seek to stamp out religious practices with which they disagree. Their assault on religion and the religious is dangerous, and represents a profound departure from the principles of religious freedom on which the United States was founded.

'Watch out Big Tech, here comes Big Brother'

The Trump administration has been tough for Big Tech. With accusations of censorship, calls for antitrust action, and endless congressional hearings, the axe hanging over major technology companies like Facebook and Google seems like a permanent fixture these days. But onlookers shouldn't be so quick to cheer on the government hangman.
