Fox News' 'Impeach Trump' poll a bit on the schizo side

A widely reported poll from Fox News puts national favor for an impeachment of President Donald Trump at 51%.

Fixing a self-inflicted wound in Syria

With the exception of George H.W. Bush, every president in the last four decades has had a military debacle. Donald Trump is on the verge of one. He can still avoid it, but time is running out.

Joe Biden campaign, facing New York Times fire, panics

- The Washington Times

Joe Biden's campaign team has all the markings of entering panic mode. And really, why shouldn't Team Biden feel that way? It's like 2016 all over again, when heir apparent Hillary Clinton thought she had a cake walk to the White House. Biden's approach on the campaign trail has been similarly self-entitled.

STD surge shows national need for the Bible

- The Washington Times

It's not a popular message for an increasingly secular country. But it's an important one. Read the Bible. Get back to biblical principles. It's the one message that could actually and ultimately cure the country's STD problem.

NBA stumbles trying to find line between profit and what's right

A league that has painstakingly built a reputation for social awareness for the briefest of moments looked no different than any other corporation chasing money in China. A league that embraces personal freedom seemed unable to understand that freedom means something very different in China.

Fix surprise bills with benchmarks

We need to protect Americans from surprise medical bills. Unfortunately, North Caorlina State Sen. Todd Johnson's favored approach does not solve the problem ("Washington must solve the surprise medical billing crisis," Web, Oct. 3). Instead, it sets up a new bureaucracy that leaves Americans vulnerable to out-of-control health care prices.

Anything to cover up corruption

The drip, drip, drip of insults hurled at President Trump by the political left and some on the right leaves one to wonder, Why? The investigations of Attorney General William Barr, U.S. Attorney John Durham as well as the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz are the key to understanding what is really going on here.

The world now knows that a so-called whistleblower complaint has ignited a partisan fury in America. At the center of the controversy is the highly-partisan and often untruthful Rep. Adam Schiff.
