Biden appointees anti-Jewish

While only in office for a few months, Joe Biden has attempted to overturn all of the achievements of Donald Trump, whether political or judicial. For those concerned by the ultimate judicial actions of President Biden, the U.S. Supreme Court, with former President Trump's appointees, will be a barrier generally — but not always.

Far-left parental spying is too far

Kudos to Ian Prior and his efforts to avenge cancel culture ("Becoming a 'Cancel Culture Avenger,'" Web, March 29). Regarding the "Chardonnay Antifa" which Mr. Prior referenced, perhaps a better moniker would be "The Loudoun County Chardonnay STASI," which of course refers to the former East German secret police who encouraged neighbors to spy on each other during their Communist reign.

No farm in 'windfarm'

Your newspaper should stop supporting "doublespeak" when covering projects that aim to generate electricity using wind ("Biden proposes new windmill farms along huge swaths of U.S. coastline," Web, March 29). First, the use of the term "windmill" is simply an obfuscation. The word conjures up benign images of Holland and farms. The use of the term then leads to the truly misleading description of "wind farms" when describing a collection of wind turbines, giving these blights on the landscape a romantic and benign cover. They are neither.

Defending American national interests by deterring the People's Republic of China

While the first two months of the Biden administration have set about to reverse many of the previous administration's policies, there appears to be one exception -- its public commitment to a "Free and Open Indo-Pacific" as a bulwark against the threat from the People's Republic of China's (PRC) global hegemony.

The Short Life of Hughie McLoon (book cover)

BOOK REVIEW: 'The Short Life of Hughie McLoon'

Veteran sportswriter, reporter, and author Allen Abel's "The Short Life of Hughie McLoon: A True Story of Baseball, Magic, and Murder," recounts the life of a deformed youngster who navigates through 19th-century professional baseball, boxing and organized crime in Philadelphia, my hometown.

America's Woke Military Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

Biden's woke military

There are two types of senior military leaders. One always seeks ways to maximize the lethality and readiness of the forces under his command. The other is so sunken in the political swamp that those concepts are nearly forgotten.

The New York and California exodus

- The Washington Times

One of the more underreported stories of the past year is how residents of New York and California are leaving their progressive states behind for the likes of Texas and Florida.

The Satanic Temple unveils its statue of Baphomet, a winged-goat creature, at a rally for the First Amendment in Little Rock, Ark., Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018. The Satanic Temple wants to install the statue on Capitol grounds as a symbol for religious freedom after a monument of the Biblical Ten Commandments was installed in 2017.

'Satan Shoes' a sign of America's sickened soul

- The Washington Times

Rapper Lil Nas X launched a brand of athletic wear called "Satan Shoes" with an upside-down Christian cross, bronze pentagrams, a Bible reference to Luke 10:18 -- about the evil one's lightning-quick fall from Heaven -- and a drop of human blood. What a stark picture of the moral decaying of America.

Mileage tax unconstitutional

The Buttigieg and Biden/Harris "mileage tax" violates the Ninth Amendment, which protects our unenumerated rights ("Buttigieg: Biden eyes 'mileage tax' on drivers that 'shows a lot of promise,'" Web, March 27). The Ninth Amendment reads: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." One of these rights is the right to travel state to state, given in the Privilege and Immunities Clause in Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution.

Vietnam War was a disaster, period

My Vietnam War memories were securely filed away until recently, when I started watching those expat Southeast Asia travel videos on YouTube ("The Vietnam War was winnable," Web, March 26). Up popped a statue of the late Sen. John McCain, sitting beside the lake he had crashed landed in. The lake is part of a park in the middle of Hanoi. I nearly fell off my chair. Apparently this is one statue that Black Lives Matter and antifa have not gotten to. Another surprise is that Ho Chi Minh City is referred to as Saigon, and apparently no one cares.

Satan shoes? Seriously?

What is this world coming to when someone is willing to celebrate the release and purchase of a pair of tennis shoes that are decorated with a pentagram pendant, marked with the number 666 and contain a drop of human blood in the sole? Rapper Lil Nas X is releasing 666 pairs of just such shoes.
