Instant replay and impeachment

Bringing conservatism back to colleges

A recent Gallup poll shows that nearly 60 percent of the adults in America under the age of 30 believe that socialism is acceptable. Equally troubling, less than 25 percent of that same age group is exceptionally proud to be an American.

Joe Biden, the punch line that keeps on giving

- The Washington Times

Joe Biden just told an MSNBC-watching audience that men shouldn't ever "raise a hand to a woman in anger" -- except when he has to, when it's "self-defense." And wait for it, wait for it: That wasn't even Biden's worst debate-related moment.

Gordon Sondland takeaway: Impeach, I 'presume'

- The Washington Times

Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to the European Union, entered the House intelligence committee hearing on impeachment as the Democrats' best hope of bringing the hammer to President Donald Trump's head. He left atop a wave of presumption. In other words: The anticipated big bombsheller dropped a big nothingburger.

Burisma shows double standard of Democrats

- The Washington Times

If anything concrete has come from the Democrat-fueled impeachment hearings being spearheaded by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, it's this: Witnesses acknowledge Hunter Biden's Burisma Holdings' post came in at "less than comfortable" on the old ethics scale. So why isn't Capitol Hill focused on this as an investigation?

Release whistleblower info now

What Rep. Adam Schiff is hiding reveals the truth ("Democrats' star witness shoots down 'bribery,' cover-up claims," Web, Nov. 19). Mr. Schiff's witness, Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an obvious anti-Trumper, showed his illusions of grandeur by saying: "I am the director for Ukraine. I'm responsible for Ukraine. I'm the most knowledgeable. I'm the authority for Ukraine for the National Security Council and the White House." Mr. Vindman complained about "outside Influencers" interfering with his work.

EDITORIAL: Playing telephone with Ukraine

A straightforward message can emerge unintelligible when whispered around a circle. Much more distorting than a children's game, apparently, is the free-flowing art of diplomacy. Destruction-minded Democrats hope to deploy disagreements over every murmur and recollection of a phone call to evict President Trump from the White House. Reasonable people may disagree over meaning, but only the senseless would angle for impeachment.

Stop making up crimes

So Roger Stone was convicted of lying to Congress ("Roger Stone criminal trial attended by a parade of 'alt-right' personalities," Web, Nov. 17). Wait a minute — I thought a "liar" who was convicted of lying to liars was forgiven for 1,000 years.

Fossil fuels create jobs so why do Democrats hate them?

Thanks to President Trump's energy deregulation, America has become the world's leading producer of oil and of natural gas. This has created a huge boom in jobs and higher wages for blue-collar working people.
