Using illegals to bolster polls?

Democrat-controlled states including New York, California, New Jersey and Virginia are allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses — and in those states all you need in order to vote is a driver's license. Democrats complain until the cows come home whenever Republicans want to mandate voter ID cards and birth certificates to prove place of birth; they have cried disenfranchisement and gotten their way. Just watch this coming presidential election and see the mess that ensues in those states when illegals vote by the droves.

Reporters should behave

Jennifer Harper's recent piece, "Time for journalists to jettison bad behavior" (Web, Jan. 12), is right on. In addition to political deadlock in Washington, we have rampant journalistic piling on.

Congress' personal disdain for Trump impedes national security

What do the Iranian people, who have turned out in droves to protest their own government, know that many members of Congress don't? They realize it's their leaders who represent a grave threat to the future of their own country and world peace, not the president of the United States.

San Francisco's fur ban puts individual rights at stake

On Jan. 1, San Francisco implemented a ban on the sale of new fur clothing -- coats, trim, accessories and other products. This fall, California's governor signed a ban on fur across the state that will take effect in 2023.

Was Hemingway a Soviet spy?

Ernest Hemingway's critics like to zero in on his time as a WWII combat correspondent and brand him as a coward, a liar and a fake journalist. But the worst accusation against him, in my view, is that Hemingway was a Soviet spy.

Nancy Pelosi's revenge: Trump is 'impeached for life'

- The Washington Times

In between the insistence on impeachment as a dire national security issue and then the holding of the articles, Nancy Pelosi gave a slight hint into why she's been going gung-ho for so long, so viciously, yet so utterly devoid and defiant of facts, against President Donald Trump: It's personal. It's revenge. It's her way of marking Trump for life.

What to expect next from Iran after Soleimani killing

What Tehran will do now is hope that we will understand the nature of the response and not strike back. Iran will thunder to the world about the blow it has struck but then take no further immediate action.

A 2020 national security wish list

America is never as solipsistic as it is in election years. This one will be no exception because Congress, the media and public debate will be almost totally dominated by election news and the Democrats' impeachment melodrama.

Tom Steyer outruns Cory Booker

Pity poor Cory Booker. The Democratic senator from New Jersey and also-ran presidential candidate has palpably craved the presidency for some two decades. And he did all the right things: First, he attended Stanford University and won a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford. Next came the obligatory law degree from Yale Law School. And then he embarked on a frankly thankless job, serving as mayor of hardscrabble Newark, New Jersey for two terms.

Iran, at war with U.S. since '79

Victor Davis Hanson and Andrew P. Napolitano provide almost conflicting views in recent Commentary pieces dealing with the ramifications of the targeted killing of Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani ("Iran's options in all-out war with America are all bad" and "Can President Trump legally kill a person not engaged in an act of violence?" Web, Jan. 8). To the Iranians, Soleimani was a respected, even loved general, despite having been sanctioned as a terrorist and killer by the European Union, the United Nations and numerous governments.
