Carl Higbie -- who? -- media's newest anti-Trump pawn

- The Washington Times

Carl Higbie, the chief of external affairs for the Corporation for National and Community Service, just resigned after CNN found evidence of offensive remarks he had made in the past. Never heard of Higbie? Doesn't matter. CNN found an audio of him in June 2013 saying this: "I just don't like Muslim people. Well people are like, 'well, you can't hate somebody just for being Muslim.' It's like, yeah, I can." Suddenly, in the eyes of the media, he's been one of Donald Trump's best friends for years.

Mahmoud Abbas, man of peace, to Trump: 'May your house be destroyed'

- The Washington Times

Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Palestinian Authority, the guy who's frequently touted by both left- and right-leaning politicos as a moderate who wants nothing but peace with Israel, went on an shocking rant against the Jewish state and the United States in recent public remarks, ultimately unleashing a curse on President Donald Trump that went like this: "May your house be destroyed." Either Abbas has gone rogue or he's showing his true anti-West colors. The smart money's on Option B.

Illegal charged with cop-killing: 'Wish I had killed more'

- The Washington Times

An illegal immigrant facing murder charges for the killing of two law enforcement officers in Northern California went off the rails during his court hearing and said, with a grin on his face, "I wish I had killed more," Fox News reported. This is what the sanctuary-loving left wants to shelter from the deportation storm?

DOJ, in rare but welcome move, petitions SCOTUS to end DACA

- The Washington Times

The Department of Justice is petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a federal judge's ruling on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a rare intervention that could finally hand the White House a win on the Barack Obama-implemented program. Good. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is right to wage a fight on this. The idea that a former president's executively issued command that wrongfully skirted Congress is now hard and fast U.S. law is a bit much to stomach.

Christian sects and religious minorities face brutal persecution in areas controlled by the Islamic State. Activists say an official finding by the Obama administration that the persecution amounts to genocide should set in motion a number of legal and financial sanctions and give the issue a much greater urgency around the world.

'Islamic oppression' strikes again, as 3,066 Christians killed, 1,020 raped

- The Washington Times

The Bible tells Christians to beware, that to follow Jesus paves the way for a life of challenge, mocking and persecution -- that specifically, as Matthew 10:22 states, "you will be hated by all for [His] name's sake." Well, according to a new report from Open Doors, a nonprofit that supports the spread of the faith in even the most hostile of areas, that ain't no joke.

Puerto Rico newspaper columnist blames 'the Jew' for island ills

- The Washington Times

A columnist for one of Puerto Rico's largest circulation newspapers, El Nueva Dia, wrote in a recent piece that the reason the country is still struggling, post Hurricane Maria, and its citizens, living in disastrous conditions is because of Jews in America. Yes, that is what Wilda Rodriguez put forth in a piece titled, "What Does 'The Jew' Want From the Colony?"

In this Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018, photo released by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department shows suspect David Allen Turpin. Authorities say an emaciated teenager led deputies to a California home where her 12 brothers and sisters were locked up in filthy conditions, with some of them malnourished and chained to beds. Riverside County sheriff's deputies arrested the parents David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin on Sunday. The parents could face charges including torture and child endangerment.

Evil, cloaked in Christianity

- The Washington Times

A Perris, California, couple who have been accused of shackling their 13 children to their beds and imprisoning them in filthy, dark, disgusting conditions were -- according to the grandmom -- good Christians who were simply living out their faith by having so many kids. Nope. God had nothing to do with this evil. In fact, this couple gives God a bad name.

Democratic dopiness: Lawmaker blames U.S. for North Korea nukes

- The Washington Times

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a Hawaii Democrat, took to "This Week" on ABC to say that it's America's fault North Korea has nuclear designs. This is typical Democrat logic -- defending chaos and evil at all costs and pointing fingers at any source that detracts from leftist, progressive culpability.

Blacks can be racist, too

- The Washington Times

Charles M. Blow, a black New York Times columnist, just wrote a piece for his newspaper that's bluntly titled, "Trump Is a Racist. Period." He arrives at that conclusion by simply saying it -- as if saying something conclusively makes it so.

Trump haters have their next distraction

- The Washington Times

Democrats this morning are on a mass tantrum, taking to the media to outdo themselves with the best shock and awe impression they can muster over President Donald Trump's "sh--hole" comment -- the same comment Trump now denies, via Twitter, saying. Thing is: Democrats really don't care what Trump said. They only care about how they can use what they said to attack him politically.

Luis Gutierrez, go home

- The Washington Times

Rep. Luis Gutierrez took to national television to call out President Donald Trump as a neo-Nazi and KKK leader. Gutierrez should go home. And not to the cushy, cozy home of his fellow anti-American elites in Illinois, but rather to Puerto Rico, his home of descent, the home he oh-so-proudly hails from while making political points against conservatives -- the home he mentally channels while dinging the president as a racist and a bigot and an enemy of the poor.

Trump's 'sh--hole' remark reason he was elected

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump reportedly suggested the United States shouldn't take in immigrants from Haiti or other "s---hole countries" because they do little to bolster an America First agenda -- and now the world is on fire, tittering about racism and vulgarities and the foul-mouthed impoliteness of this White House commander-in-chief. But really folks, this is why Trump was elected in the first place.

7-Eleven siege, as ICE raids for illegals

- The Washington Times

There's this 7-Eleven in Northern Virginia where scores of illegals hang, waiting for day work that may or may not come -- staring at and intimidating women who cross the parking lot. But now, thanks to federal immigration officers and the get-tough-on-borders approach of President Donald Trump, there are 98 fewer 7-Elevens across the nation this morning that are facing this same issue.
