Trump must win against left

Finally, President Trump has declared the invasion at the border a national emergency ("Trump declares national emergency on border, taking extra money for wall," Web, Feb. 15). I am sure the globalists are squealing and will pay liberal politicians to fight him on this tooth and nail. They will take him to court. They will lie, cheat and steal to keep these Central American invaders coming in to drain our welfare safety net, bring in drugs and most of all vote in our elections for the Democrats. But Mr. Trump will win and they will lose.

Not even a minute for security

If each hour in a 40-hour work week equaled $100 billion, it would be equivalent to the $4-trillion annual U.S. budget. In that 40 hours, $1.375 billion allotted for the border wall is equivalent to 50 seconds.

Treat treason accordingly

A Washington Times headline yesterday read, "McCabe admits DOJ talked Trump removal, says he ordered obstruction of justice probe" (Web, Feb. 14). Merriam-Webster defines a coup d'etat as "the overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group." There are currently American men and women in our armed forces in harm's way all over the globe fighting the global war on terror. Put the pieces together and we have men and women at the Department of Justice who have actively engaged in the overthrow of a lawfully elected president of the United States during a time of war.

Act expansion makes no sense

As noted in "'Standard for equality': Congressional Democrats push for huge expansion to 1964 Civil Rights Act" (Web, Feb. 11): "The Equality Act would insert "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" into protections throughout the 1964 Civil Rights Act. But there is no logic for doing so.

Omar shows left's anti-Jewish turn

It was surprising that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, well aware of the political views of freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, placed her on the Foreign Affairs Committe. Certainly it seems that Mrs. Pelosi, master politician, realized which way the wind is blowing as far as Israel is concerned.

Don't take this lousy 'Deal'

Our gross domestic product, the total value of goods and services produced by everyone and everything in the U.S., is $19.4 trillion a year. Medicare for all will cost $30 trillion over 10 years. So essentially the entire GDP of the U.S. for 1.5 years out of every 10 years will be allocated toward Medicare for all.

Omar 'apology' means nothing

No, Nancy, an unequivocal apology is not good enough ("Top Democrats force Ilhan Omar to apologize for Jewish money tweets," Web, Feb. 11). That Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the two first Muslim congresswomen, are racists is a stain on the Democratic Party. They should have been vetted and ejected from the party long before the midterm elections.

Government, butt out of education

No wonder Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who advocates for free college (among other freebies), appeals to young voters with little or no civic education behind them. Before the Department of Education was created by President Jimmy Carter, it was possible for a person to work their way through college and then graduate debt-free.

Here we go again

A growing segment of the left-of-center electorate, having been roused by the noxious idea of free services for all and the Green New Deal fantasy, is now comfortable with a feel-good approach to complicated societal problems rather than fact-based analyses. Socialism and its handmaiden, autocratic governance, is attractive to this cohort of voters who do not understand that this is the quicksand that sinks the historically illiterate.

Feelings owe much to biology

Research shows that babies of all races innately prefer the close proximity of other members of their own race, although the gradual acquisition of racial intolerance is typically environmental, such as from parents or extended caregivers. So one's natural notation of others' skin color is instinctive.

'New Green Deal' laughable

By churning out her "New Green Deal," Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has shown the entire world just how insane her politics really are. The woman who wasted her education, became a bartender and then became an unschooled congresswoman seems to have run out of steam.

Where are babies' rights?

Birth control options include barrier methods, such as male and female condoms and contraceptive sponges, and hormonal methods, such as birth control pills, vaginal rings and implantable rods.
