Police raid on Kansas newspaper latest sign of America's downfall

- The Washington Times

These aren't the best of times. These are the worst of times. A simple allegation can oh-so-quickly turn into a cause to toss out the Constitution. This is what happens when a nation formed on a model of God first, government subservient, abandons that premise and flips the structure of power.

Former President Donald Trump speaks at a fundraiser event for the Alabama GOP, Friday, Aug. 4, 2023, in Montgomery, Ala. Just one month after Donald Trump’s January 2021 phone call to suggest Georgia’s secretary of state could overturn his election loss, District Attorney Fani Willis announced she was looking into possibly illegal “attempts to influence” the results.

Trump's indictments all the more reason to vote for him

- The Washington Times

Another day, another Donald Trump indictment. The takeaway is this: The more indictments fly Trump's way, the more voters should dig down and decide he's the guy to elect in 2024. At this point, voters should choose Trump because of the indictments, not in spite of them.

Tipping toward fatigue: Consumers exploited by entitlement workforce

- The Washington Times

It's bad enough America raised a generation to expect trophies simply for the so-called achievement of participating -- in so doing, fueling an entitlement culture. Now we've got to add to this entitlement mindset by tipping service workers simply for the achievement of doing what they're paid to do, anyway?

A State Department report says the department failed to do enough contingency planning before the collapse of the U.S.-backed government in Afghanistan. The review repeatedly blames the administration of former President Donald Trump for not doing enough planning or processing of visas after beginning the withdrawal.

Gold Star families deserve better than Biden

- The Washington Times

Thirteen American service members were killed during the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan -- a botching that was overseen by President Biden. But Biden understands how the family members of these military heroes feel because his son, Beau, died of cancer. How clueless. How self-absorbed.

Democrats hitting brick wall with younger voters

- The Washington Times

The midterms may have seen a surprising surge of young voters for Democrats, and the youthful Gen-Zers may have helped push Joe Biden's presidential tally in 2020, but that was then, this is now. Democrats are losing the youth and quite possibly, the youth vote. They brought it on themselves.

The Louisiana state Capitol stands prominently, April 4, 2023, in Baton Rouge, La. A slew of new Louisiana laws, recently passed by the Republican-dominated Legislature and signed by Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards, went into effect Tuesday, Aug. 1. Among the new laws are ones that increase punishments for fentanyl-related crimes, a requirement that every public school classroom display the phrase “In God We Trust,” and an addition to the state’s age verification law to access pornography websites.

'In God We Trust' makes a comeback

- The Washington Times

Louisiana just signed into law a requirement that all public school administrators make sure the motto "In God We Trust" is displayed in every classroom, in every building, in every district. It's a law that's been passed in several other states of late as well. Praise the Lord. God is making a comeback in America.

Big Pharma's outrageous, despicable multibillion-dollar tax dodge

- The Washington Times

Americans who earn well may have to pay as much as 37% of income in taxes each year. But not so the pharmaceuticals. For 2022, eight Big Pharma companies scooped a combined $110 billion in profits, but they only paid a combined $2 billion in U.S. taxes. That's about 2%. They exploit the free market.

COVID 'surge,' COVID 'uptick' and leprosy -- and so it begins

- The Washington Times

Headlines are ablaze with alerts about a summertime COVID-19 "uptick," and worse, a summertime COVID-19 "surge," and as the medical experts everywhere are advising: Keep a face mask handy; stay on the COVID-19 shot schedule; listen up for lockdowns. Hmm. An important election must be coming.

U.N. and its 'global boiling' nonsense

- The Washington Times

Climate change isn't just "here," according to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. It's "terrifying." It's "just the beginning." And it's moved from "global warming" to "global boiling," with air that is "unbreathable" and heat that is "unbearable," he said. Right-o. That used to be called summer.

Phoenix, Arizona, opening 'queer blended' LGBTQ middle school

- The Washington Times

Middle schoolers in Arizona have a new school choice this fall -- regular public or the "Queer Blended Learning Center," a specially designed facility for LGBTQ students. Leftists call it "life-saving for queer children," Pink News wrote. Actually, it's a big ol' box of lunacy wrapped with a fluffy bow of evil.

Democrats do love a good Molotov cocktail

- The Washington Times

A new study found the number of Democrats who were willing to use force as a tool of political persuasion grew between January and June from 9% to 17%. Not surprising. Democrats do love their violence. Word is, they're petitioning to make Molotov cocktail throwing an Olympic sport.

- The Washington Times

Whole Foods Market is rolling out a new palm payment reader devised by Amazon One, the contactless identification creation of Amazon, with expectations that all 500-plus grocery stores will offer the system before the end of this year.

Americans' belief in hell falls to new lows

- The Washington Times

Seventy-four percent of Americans believe in God; 69% and 67% in angels and heaven, respectively -- but only 59% in hell and 58% in the devil, according to new polling from Gallup. Surprise! That's going to be the reaction of quite a few Americans one fine day. But the findings explain quite a bit about this nation's drift.
