Stone sentence was too harsh

The Justice Department was right to disavow the prosecutors' draconian recommended sentence of seven to nine years of prison for Roger Stone ("EXCLUSIVE: Edwin Meese backs Trump's 'legal right' but says intervening in criminal cases not 'wise,' Web, Feb. 16). Even anti-Trump former prosecutors agree that sentence was excessive and have predicted that Judge Amy Berman Jackson will likely impose a lower sentence.

The enemy is us

Sometimes, reading the headlines, one would think America is being taken over by a foreign enemy. But turning on the news one sees that the enemy is not foreign.

Consequences of evaded reality

I was 16 in 1979 when Russia invaded Afghanistan. My father told me to avoid conscription at any cost, as my life in Afghanistan, unlike in Eastern Europe, wouldn't be worth an hour's purchase. In 1981 I joined St. Petersburg University, where a professor said not every country is "democracy material."

Spare a dime?

I appreciated Wendy Young's "Deeply flawed Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) causes suffering at the U.S.-Mexico border" (Web, Feb. 8). However, the piece implies that the Americans are the bad guys. Wrong. How about offering a solution to the problem rather than pointing fingers?

Popular vote constitutional

The headline "Virginia House approves bill to join National Popular Vote, to bypass Electoral College" (Web, Feb. 11) is misleading. The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is not an "end run" on the U.S. Constitution, as is frequently claimed by its opponents.

No more paid loafing

Democrats have turned Congress into a government-subsidized assistance program for their benefit. When they show up, they don't know where they've been. When they get there, they don't know where they are. They can't agree to anything, they don't accomplish anything and they do it all on borrowed money.

Another opportunity to miss

For political reasons, Israel should not be setting out its boundaries alone ("US ambassador to Israel warns against West Bank annexation," Web, Feb. 9). Nevermind that one cannot annex one's own land, as all of Israel, including Judea, Samaria and Gaza, is Israel's since the League of Nations declared it so.

Bloomberg in bed with China

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg seems to be the Manchurian candidate who is not only spending millions to get elected president, but is also trying to destroy President Trump in order to protect his interests with Red China.

Left's bias poses physical danger

The recent news report regarding a man in Florida driving his van into a tent in which local Repubicans were registering voters should tell everyone that between the mainstream news media and the Democrats, the political left has accomplished its job: President Trump has been portrayed as the worst man to infect the world since the bubonic plague.

Faulty logic on Trump motives

Regarding the recent article by Andrew Napolitano on the impropriety of President Trump's actions with Ukraine, how does the former judge know that Mr. Trump was not sincerely trying to investigate corruption rather than just trying to do damage to a political opponent ("President Trump acquitted but not exonerated," Web, Feb. 5)? Would Mr. Trump's request have been legitimate if Joe Biden had not been running for president?

Acquittal based on facts

Sen. Chuck Schumer's pre-impeachment speech vindicated President Trump. Mr. Schumer said the Senate trial was not fair because Democrats were not allowed to have witnesses or see documents. That is exactly what the House managers denied the Republicans and White House counsel.
