The Vietnam War was winnable

What are the lessons of Vietnam? Well, Reagan expressed one lesson this way: "Young Americans must never again be sent to fight and die unless we are prepared to let them win."

Washington Football Team's fishbowl is shrinking again

Dan Snyder is on the hit list again. This time, it's the cancel culture's Time's Up who has drawn a bull's-eye on his back. The organization, whose supporters include Hollywood bigwigs Shonda Rhimes and Mark Walhberg, say the owner of the NFL's Washington Football Team is making a power grab.

Biden's 'Taxageddon': Higher taxes are what Democrats do

President Biden may have promised middle-class Americans that he wouldn't raise their taxes, but he didn't say he wouldn't boost their costs. In an interconnected society, higher taxes on the wealthy and corporate America radiate outward like ripples on a pond, eventually reaching every wallet. With four years to work its productivity-punishing mischief, Taxageddon is approaching.

Reinstate Trump bans

The Democrats' self-serving and staged rationale for seizing guns from the public smacks of treacherous intentions. Such actions would deliver to the left its insatiable goal of depriving citizens of the ability to protect themselves and their families from the onslaught of terrorists and homicidal criminals. Such individuals will only grow in number as the weak, catastrophic open-border policies and anti-law enforcement crusades continue. President Biden and all these other frauds care nothing for the victims of mass shootings; they are simply trained to publicly engage in scripted, cheap outrage for the benefit of their fellow shills in the media.

Biden bucks, anyone?

Joe Biden, with 50-odd years in Washington under his belt, is perhaps the most unaccomplished politician there is. However, we finally found something he can do: spend money.

Heed warning signs, enforce laws

Democrats are pushing another senseless call for stricter gun control ("Biden eyes executive action to impose new gun control measures," Web, March 23). This happens after every mass shooting. They never focus on the reasons these acts take place. In many previous cases — including in San Bernardino, Calif., Fort Hood, Texas and Parkland, Fla. — there were warning signs about the individuals who would go on to do the shootings. However, they were either not followed up on or else were ignored by the FBI as well as the relevant state, city and school officials.

Biden's press conference was elder abuse

- The Washington Times

It was an hour of incoherent babbling - except for when President Joe Biden read directly from his talking points. The questions were polite and predictable - from preselected, approved reporters.

How America watered down whiskey's global appeal

American whiskey distillers always deserve a toast. They're responsible for creating some of the most delicious liquor in the world, and they've kindly shared it for years and years.

Border czar Harris compared ICE officers to KKK, supports sanctuary cities

- The Washington Times

Vice President Kamala Harris is the worst possible choice to be handling the crisis on our southern border -- she's demonstrated time and time again that she doesn't support the work of our nation's border officers and supports radical immigration policies such as sanctuary cities and decriminalizing border crossings.

Medicare-X deserves a third strike

Some ideas never die. Such is the case with the Medicare-X Choice Act, a bill just reintroduced by Sens. Tim Kaine, Virginia Democrat, and Michael Bennet, Colorado Democrat.

The real Vanita Gupta: Why Senate Republicans should confirm her

A couple of weeks ago, my cell phone rang just after car line for school pickup, and my 9-year-old son grabbed it and answered with a sizzling, "Whazzzzzzzuuuuuuuuu?" It was Vanita Gupta on the line, the president's nominee to be associate attorney general of the United States. I was horrified by my son's greeting to such a distinguished colleague, but Vanita didn't miss a beat and replied with her own, "Whazzzzzuuuuuuuuu?"

Biden should ban assault people

- The Washington Times

President Biden responded to the Boulder, Colorado, shootings by calling on Congress to pass a ban on assault weapons. Whatever that means. Aren't all guns to some extent capable of assaulting? It's the people who are firing those weapons we really need to stop, yes?
