Billionaires reap big bucks during coronavirus despair

- The Washington Times

The coronavirus has been devastating to America's economy, to America's businesses, to America's entrepreneurs, to America's farmers and fitness trainers and food servers and file clerks -- to blue-collar and white-collar workers alike. Not all, however, have similarly suffered.

GINGRICH: The Georgia GOP Disaster

As a Republican who began his volunteer activities in Georgia in the 1960 Richard Nixon-Henry Lodge campaign, I think it is necessary to have the courage to face the depth and scale of yesterday's disaster in Georgia.

Hold cheaters accountable

I really hope that every member of Congress and all the state legislatures realize just how important the 2020 presidential election was and continues to be. The level of voter fraud in this election cannot be ignored, and only Congress and the state legislatures can fix the cheating and bring us back from the brink of civil war. As things look right now, these corrupt politicians are going to try to bury the evidence — or just ignore it and hope there will be no consequences.

Iran's sanction-free path forward

It is now obvious that Iran has decided to go ahead with its enriched-uranium program, a critical step in its nuclear-bomb program ("Iran says it begins 20% uranium enrichment amid U.S. tensions," Web, Jan. 4). This decision was probably taken to force a concession from the incoming Biden administration for a renewal of the flawed nuclear agreement that gave Iran a lifting of sanctions and a path to the nuclear bomb, coupled with a continuation of its long-range-missile technology. With this tactic, Iran will have the best of all worlds, as sanctions against it are lifted and its current military programs can continue.

Brexit is a reality; the U.S. must act accordingly

Britain has left the European Union. Now, the United States faces a simple choice. It can either stand idly by as other nations make trade deals with Britain, or it can negotiate a free trade agreement for its own benefit.

China goes 'full rogue,' sparking fears of next 'Cuban Missile Crisis'

- The Washington Times

The mass arrest of pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong, combined with the messaging of China's president for all soldiers to be on alert for combat "at all times," has set the global stage for the "most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis," according to one China affairs expert, Gordon G. Chang. That's comforting.

No party for moderate men: Blue Dog Democrats are confused, scared and all but neutered

There are not many Blue Dog Democrats, that old redoubt of moderate liberals, left these days. As our colleague David Sherfinski reported last week, this once influential voting bloc has been diminished to about two dozen members. Like strangers in a foreign land, these days they appear out of step with party aims, and relegate their "serious" actions to letter writing and, we imagine, various forms of hand wringing.

Courts should have heard fraud cases

Justice has long been said to be blind. After the bogus 2020 presidential election the saying should be changed to "Justice is deaf, dumb, blind and dead." To put it into perspective, the vast majority of TV news outlets and newspapers have been saying there is no evidence of fraud in the election.

Candace Owens for governor
