Let's have some historical perspective on presidential misconduct

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

This week, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee trotted out a trio of dispassionate legal experts to explain why the impeachment of Donald Trump was justified. They were there to bring a veneer of gravitas and erudition to what's been, until now, a highly partisan affair.

But however smart people such as Michael Gerhardt, distinguished ...Read more

Is impeachment backfiring on the Democrats?

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Impeachment is a political process. No sentient being, after all, believes that Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi are good-faith guardians of constitutional order. And judging the process strictly on political grounds, it hasn't been a success for Democrats.

For one thing, impeachment, if it happens, will effectively end up being a partisan censure ...Read more

Pelosi is already attacking the potential illegitimacy of the 2020 election

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

"Nancy Pelosi just stated that 'it is dangerous to let the voters decide Trump's fate.' @FoxNews In other words, she thinks I'm going to win and doesn't want to take a chance on letting the voters decide. Like Al Green, she wants to change our voting system. Wow, she's CRAZY!" tweeted Donald Trump Tuesday.

Well, not exactly. Trump's tweet ...Read more

The Trump 'Manchurian Candidate' theory will never die

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

One of the most durable conspiracy theories of our times finds Vladimir Putin recruiting a billionaire media personality named Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency. In some iterations of the tale, Trump is willingly serving his Kremlin comrades; in others, he is merely the victim of kompromat. In every version, he is an asset of a hostile ...Read more

ABC keeps covering for Jeffrey Epstein

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

This week, James O'Keefe's Project Veritas, a group that has often infiltrated news organizations to uncover liberal bias, released an explosive "hot mic" video of "Good Morning America" co-host Amy Robach venting about ABC's decision to spike a story about late serial sex predator Jeffrey Epstein's nefarious activities three years ago.

"I had ...Read more

Trump calls Pelosi's bluff

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Editor's note: David Harsanyi is off this week. The following column is by Betsy McCaughey.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly slammed the secret impeachment hearings in the Capitol basement as "a totally compromised kangaroo court." Sounds like Speaker Nancy Pelosi got the message. On Monday, she announced the full House will vote to...Read more

It's not so much the rise as the fall of Skywalker

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Who knows? Maybe "The Rise of Skywalker" will bind all the tedious storylines of the first two "Star Wars" sequels into a cohesive and rewarding coda. Then again, if the new trailer offers any clues -- and as I understand it, this is point of trailers -- the movie looks like it will ratchet up the fan service in hopes of saving an ...Read more

LeBron James is a coward

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

NBA superstar LeBron James says Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey was "misinformed" and "wasn't educated on the situation at hand" when he tweeted in support of Hong Kong's freedom demonstrations. Morey's sin was sharing an image of a slogan that read: "Fight for freedom. Stand with Hong Kong." Even though the GM, regrettably, deleted ...Read more

Hey, Congress: Take back your war powers

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

If you want to stop Donald Trump from making unilateral decisions regarding war and peace, then stop letting all presidents make unilateral decisions about war and peace. It's really quite simple. Trump can abruptly pull back U.S. troops from northern Syria because Congress, having abdicated its foreign policy responsibilities long ago, has no ...Read more

The anniversary of the People's Republic of China is a dark day for mankind

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

It's one thing to engage in diplomacy. It's another to praise evil.

This week, Donald Trump tweeted, "Congratulations to President Xi and the Chinese people on the 70th Anniversary of the People's Republic of China!" For diplomatic reasons, it's become customary for American presidents to praise and commend this depraved totalitarian regime. In...Read more

The tragedy of Greta Thunberg's calls for authoritarianism

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Sixteen-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg lives in the healthiest, wealthiest, safest and most peaceful era humans have ever known. She is one of the luckiest people ever to have lived.

In a just world, Thunberg would be at the United Nations thanking capitalist countries for bequeathing her this remarkable inheritance. ...Read more

The Smearing of Brett Kavanaugh Is an Attack on the Supreme Court

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

In the end, the Democrats' smearing of Brett Kavanaugh is about delegitimizing the Supreme Court -- the only institution that will inhibit the progressive agenda no matter who wins elections.

In the mind of Democrats, conservative justices aren't merely wrong; they're nefarious, racist and extremist. So it's not surprising that virtually any ...Read more
