Trump far better than crooked Hillary

Regarding Jay Bookman’s column, “Has reality become an outmoded concept?” (Opinion, Feb. 25), Bookman bemoans the “fact” evangelical conservatives generally support President Donald Trump, even though he is likely unfaithful to his wife and has many, many other gross moral flaws. I am a Christian evangelical conservative, and I voted for Trump. I still stand by that vote. Trump has turned out to be pretty much what I expected: an enormously worldly, sinful person, without much hint of spirituality. Further, he is very untruthful, and probably has some political skeletons in his closet. So, why did I vote for him? First, as repugnant as Trump is, the only realistic alternative our political system gave us, Crooked Queen Hillary, is about six times more repulsive, deceitful, sinful and corrupt. Second, had the Crooked Queen been elected, the mainstream media, being much more concerned about pushing their socialist/communist agenda than they are about truthfully reporting the news, would have given her an enormous amount of journalistic cover to pursue her stunningly crooked lifestyle.


Delta’s not the coward in this spat

How strange to hear the NRA accusing Delta Air Lines and others of cowardice for discontinuing its support of the NRA by offering members discounts and special benefits. I always thought the cowards were those who pandered to the NRA in such ways, and the politicians who were so afraid to cross it that they could barely muster “thoughts and prayers” for the many victims of gun violence. How silly of me. I guess I’ll never get used to those on the right who so unapologetically hurl insults like this, as did our president, when he made fun of those who served in Vietnam while piously and proudly pointing to his “courage” — supposedly nursing his deferment-supported bone spurs.

Opinion: Parkland kids are rewriting the playbook

Something came awake in them. That has to be the explanation. As they cowered in closets, as they said goodbyes and waited, with gunfire echoing down the halls, to die, something inside stirred itself. And when they didn’t die, when these teenagers left the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland alive — something 17 of their...
Opinion: Democrats dream of capturing California districts

LOS ANGELES — On a recent Sunday evening, Katie Hill, 30, whose father is an L.A. police lieutenant in Beverly Hills, boarded a red-eye flight to Washington for frenetic fundraising and networking. She must really want to get into the House of Representatives. If she does, she will have defeated a two-term incumbent, Rep. Steve Knight, 51, who...

Protesting students should face consequences Local school districts need to reverse their decisions on allowing students to protest. The whole point of protest and civil disobedience is to be willing to accept whatever consequences come their way. Rosa Parks would not be remembered today had the bus driver told her she could go ahead and sit there...
Opinion: Track and deport will keep Georgians safe

Tackling illegal immigration and protecting Georgia families from criminal aliens is a fundamental component of my campaign for governor. When I announced my candidacy in March of 2017, I told a standing-room-only crowd at the Cobb County Republican Party headquarters that it was time to draw a clear line in the sand on illegal immigration. &ldquo...
Opinion: Pence — Trump’s making Ga., America great again

When I visit Atlanta Friday – my second time in the Peach State in just the past week – I’ll bring a message to all the good people of Georgia. The American economy is booming, and we’re just getting started. Since Day One of our administration, President Trump has been fighting to rev the engine of our national prosperity and...
