As a Jew, I say "Convert me if you can!"

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

The investigative journalists over at The Daily Beast report that Madison Cawthorn, the North Carolina Republican who will soon become the youngest member of Congress in American history, "has admitted he tried to convert Jews and Muslims to Christianity."

So what?

As a Jew, I've had several Christian friends try to turn me toward Jesus -- ...Read more

Politics is not a place for unity

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Political unity is an ugly, authoritarian idea. No free place has domestic political unity, nor should it aspire to it.

What "unity" really means, of course, is capitulation. America is once again being subjected to the inane brand of pseudo-patriotic sloganeering we saw during President Barack Obama's tenure. Now, as then, the media will ...Read more

Joe Biden is the luckiest politician in American history

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Joe Biden has faced many tragedies in his personal life. But if he wins the presidency today, he will have been the luckiest politician in American history.

1972: Biden only wins his first Senate race in Delaware after Richard Nixon misguidedly convinces incumbent J. Caleb Boggs, who had announced he would be retiring, to run again. It is also ...Read more

The left doesn't fear Barrett, it fears the Constitution

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Nothing threatens the progressive project more than the existence of a Supreme Court that adheres to the Constitution. It's really that simple.

That's what the tantrum over Justice Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation is all about. The notion that the same Democrats who shelved the judicial filibuster and now threaten to destroy the separation of ...Read more

Questions Joe Biden should answer about Hunter's emails

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

First, Joe Biden's Praetorian Guard in the media argued that the New York Post's Hunter Biden scoop was "Russian disinformation." The DOJ, FBI and DNI each publicly disagreed. No one in the Biden camp has denied the veracity of a single email thus far. Yet, as of this writing, the Post's Twitter account is still frozen, and most major news ...Read more

Twitter's censorship of the New York Post is un-American

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Less than three weeks from a presidential election, perhaps the most vital platform for political news and debate, Twitter, has locked down the accounts of a presidential candidate's press secretary, and of his official campaign, among others, at the behest of activists pretending to be journalists.

This is unsurprising to anyone who has been ...Read more

Biden is flirting with the destruction of the judiciary

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Joe Biden says, "You'll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over." To this point, Biden hasn't offered any position on court-packing, one of the gravest threats to the constitutional order in modern American history. Whether he is too scared of offending a significant faction of his party or he believes it's an idea worth ...Read more

Biden is little more than a stand-in propped up by a compliant political press

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Lost in the blinding gaslighting over Donald Trump's remarks about white supremacists during the first presidential debate was the fact that Joe Biden proved again that he's little more than a stand-in propped up by a compliant political press.

Biden was unable to answer even the most rudimentary queries about his beliefs, never mind specifics ...Read more

Democrats' concern for SCOTUS 'norms' are entirely bogus

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

For those keeping track, here's a list of Democratic Party "norms" for placing new justices on the Supreme Court of the United States, as they stand today:

Norm No. 1: When Democrats are in charge of both the Senate and the White House, they are free to nominate and confirm any justice they please, as quickly as they please, as they did in the ...Read more

Why Trump's Mideast peace deals matter

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

After Israel's resounding victory over the Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian armies in 1967, the Jewish state again offered the Arab world peace in exchange for recognition. And it was again rebuffed. Instead, the Arab League convened in Khartoum to formulate a consensus response that became known as "The 3 Noes" -- no recognition, no negotiations ...Read more

The mainstream media won't ask Joe Biden these questions

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden finally held what was billed as a press conference with journalists recently -- something of a rarity in a campaign that's relied on staged question-and-answer sessions. It was a truly embarrassing display of hackery from the media.

Here's a quick sampling of some of the queries Biden faced from ...Read more

The Democrats are dangerously delegitimizing the election

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

In a recent deep dive in The Washington Post's Outlook section, "What's the Worst That Could Happen?" exploring various potential outcomes of the 2020 presidential election, found that in "every scenario except a Biden landslide, our simulation ended catastrophically." According to the Post, any other outcome is destined to spark "violence" and ...Read more

Biden is underperforming Hillary in battleground states

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

It remains something of a mystery why there's so little apprehension among liberal pundits and Democrats about the similarities between battleground state polling for the 2020 presidential election and 2016 contest -- which as you might recall did not turn out as expected.

Consider the case of Wisconsin:

The RealClearPolitics average had ...Read more
