- The Washington Times

Annapolis, Maryland, city officials accepted 40,000 face masks from China -- a gift from "sister city" Changsha that came this week in boxes decorated with U.S. and Chinese flags alongside cheery messages like, "Go, City of Annapolis!" and "True unity inspires people to work as one."

Vote for Biden is vote for Clintons

It is now perfectly clear that Joe Biden and the Clinton-staffed Sen. Kamala Harris camp will make the perfect Democratic ticket. Together they would pardon deep-state kingpins Bill and Hillary Clinton next year, and allow the Clintons' "Foundation" to use the White House as their backroom fundraising office and self-pardoning parlor going forward.

President Harris, anyone?

An alarming thought occurred to me when I heard that Sen. Kamala Harris was Joe Biden's pick for vice president. Various polls have shown that people don't believe Mr. Biden will make it through his first term. Perhaps this means the Democrats and Mr. Biden came up with a new game plan to get a far-left cretin like Ms. Harris to take over the presidency. If Mr. Biden suddenly resigns due to health problems, we get President Harris.

Cost-benefit analysis rule critical to EPA's future environmental regulations

Cost-benefit analysis is part of our everyday existence. Should I buy this car with great gas mileage or a different one that might prove safer in an accident? Do I borrow a lot of money to go to a top-tier college or do I attend a local university where I can graduate debt-free? Each decision requires us to consider many different factors. Only then can we make the wisest choice. The same rule holds true for government regulation.

Connecticut's crazy excessive coronavirus fines

- The Washington Times

Connecticut's ruling political elites have just issued fines in the total of $3,000 to a couple of citizens who didn't comply with all the state's coronavirus-related travel guidelines. Guidelines? Let's be serious. These are dictates -- and constitutional or not, by gosh, they're being enforced.

Kamala Harris jumps to VP attention, choking on hypocrisy

- The Washington Times

Sen. Kamala Harris is Joe Biden's pick for vice president. But Sen. Kamala Harris thinks Joe Biden is a woman-groper. So much for women's rights? "I believe them," Harris said in April of 2019, of the women who came forward to accuse Biden of inappropriate touching.
