Media need post-election shakeup

- The Washington Times

If this election shows anything, it's these two things: Pollsters should be fired. By the dozens. And media executives should take the plunge and shake up their staff. By the dozens. Add some conservatives. Add some Christians. Add some people who can tell when the pollsters are spot on or off the mark.

China on Monday, Dec. 30, 2019, sentenced the prominent pastor who operated outside the Communist Party-recognized Protestant organization to nine years in prison. The People's Intermediate Court in the southwestern city of Chengdu said Wang Yi was also convicted of illegal business operations, fined and had his personal assets seized.

How China targets Chinese Christians

According to recent reports, Chinese authorities have altered the famous Bible verse where Jesus forgives a woman who commits adultery: They rewrote the story so that Jesus himself stones her to death. This is an egregious affront on the text that Christians hold sacred. Worse, it's one of many offenses committed by the CCP against religious people in its crusade to bring religion under state control.

The complete list of winners and losers from the Nov. 3 elections is lengthy. The District of Columbia, though, is a unique fishbowl. Not only because it is the nation's capital, but because its hybrid status allows RINOs, DINOs, Libbies, Greenies and Shadows to game the democratic system. Women candidates latched on and, if Tuesday's elections results run the current course, will control the political, cultural and socio-economic strings.

Will America or China be No. 1 in cryptocurrency?

Regardless of what happens in the election, virtually everyone on the planet agrees that it would be better for the United States to remain the No. 1 economic, cultural, and military power in the world.

Pollsters got it wrong again

Pundits claimed Republicans would lose between five and 15 seats in the House. It appears they've picked up a few. And because final results will not be known until states count mail-in votes and end their extended vote-counting processes, Republicans could pick up a few more.

Implementing a health plan that puts patients first

When it comes to your No. 1 priority -- the health of you and your family -- the information superhighway has yet to reach you. This roadblock has created deep dysfunction in America's health care system.

Biden's $750 billion health plan fixes nothing
