Google, prepare to be cowed

- The Washington Times

In what will surely go down in Big Tech history as an "about time" moment for censor-weary Americans, the U.S. Justice Department filed a suit against Google, accusing the online giant of antitrust violations. Google, prepare to be cowed. At least a little bit.

What is President Trump's health care plan?

You will also be able to actually shop for medical services, because the president's plan requires that prices be posted for all to see. Watch prices come down. Fast.

Christmas with the Joe Biden cranks

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump said in a rally over the weekend that if Joe Biden wins the White House, be prepared for a canceled Christmas season. That's the truth. Christmas -- and beyond.

National Harbor has a problem

- The Washington Times

National Harbor, a U.S. Census-designated site, is being overtaken by youths and nefarious ne'er-do-wells, including partygoers, restaurant-goers who skip out on their bills and -- get this -- parents and other adults who rent hotel rooms for the careless young people.

A big censorship test run

In news almost everyone saw coming, Monday morning Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced he would hold no further press events until after the final presidential debate with Donald Trump on Thursday. What's remarkable is not the duck-and-cover routine Mr. Biden has been playing — we all know what that's about — but the fact that the media is simply willing to accept whatever political ploy from the campaign, no matter how anti-democratic.

Trump a true 'people's' president

Whether you like the current U.S. president or not, you might want to view the record of TV broadcast coverage on the evening of the 2016 election. Records of talking heads and other assorted "experts" reveal the antipathy the upper crust has for middle-, working- and lower-class Americans.

Death numbers need ratios

Remember how a sharp rise in global temperatures was compared to a "hockey stick" back in 2006? Turns out it was a gross exaggeration. Likewise, the global COVID-19 death rate has been greatly exaggerated, as revealed in a recent World Health Organization report. Crises often invite exaggerations. This report reveals a 0.023% mortality rate, lower than the initially estimated rate of 3.4%, which would be approximately 265 million deaths. A 0.23% death rate is about 18 million people.

'Experts' are contradictory

The final verdict from the World Health Organization, the National Institutes for Health and BitChute experts regarding face masks has been announced. It turns out masks are either utterly essential or unnecessary; fool-proof or fool-hardy; and worth the discomfort of claustrophobia (despite self-contamination or reinfection). Almost everyone agrees that mandatory or voluntary masks and nasal and mouth plugs (or hazmat suits) will either stop or prolong the spread of COVID-19.

Trump still running as outsider

- The Washington Times

The surest takeaway from the past four years in politics is that whatever crimes people accuse President Trump of committing are, in fact, being committed by the accusers themselves.
