Twitter's fact-check is mere folly

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

No American, not even the president, has an inherent right to a social media account. Tech companies are free to ban any user they see fit. They're free to fact-check anyone they want, to create a framework of acceptable speech and to enforce their policies either consistently or capriciously. They're free to accuse Donald Trump -- and only ...Read more

Democrats warning Trump will reject election results should look in the mirror

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

In a recent Washington Post column warning Americans to "prepare for the possibility of Trump rejecting election results" -- one of media's favorite projections -- Brian Klaas asks a question: "If he loses, would it be more surprising if Trump graciously accepts defeat and congratulates his opponent or if he claimed to be the victim of a rigged ...Read more

Obamagate is more than a conspiracy theory

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Those sharing #Obamagate on Twitter would do best to avoid the hysterics we saw from Russian-collusion believers, but they have no reason to ignore the mounting evidence that suggests the Obama administration engaged in serious corruption.

Democrats and their allies, who like to pretend that President Barack Obama's only scandalous act was ...Read more

Biden's hypocrisy on sexual misconduct is disgraceful

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

If presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden were forced to live by the standards he wants to set for college students accused of sexual misconduct, he would already have been presumed guilty, been denied a genuine opportunity to refute the charges leveled against him by Tara Reade, and had his life ruined.

While Biden has ...Read more

Joe Biden's personal Dr. Death

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

Does Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel believe Joe Biden would be better off dead?

That would be a peculiar position for Biden's chief adviser on medical issues and a member of the candidate's Public Health Advisory Committee to take. But if we accept the reasoning behind Emanuel's infamous 2014 essay, Biden is nothing more than a resource-sucking shell of ...Read more

Facebook fails the coronavirus test

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

A scattering of protests aimed at state lockdowns erupted across the country last week, sparked not by social distancing guidelines but by politicians' unilaterally dictating what products citizens are permitted to purchase in box stores, attempting to shut down drive-in Masses at churches and closing parks and beaches, among other ill-conceived...Read more

Coronavirus authoritarianism is getting out of hand

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

It's reasonable to assume that the vast majority of Americans process news and data, and calculate that self-quarantining, wearing masks and social distancing make sense for themselves, their families and the country. Free people act out of self-preservation, but they shouldn't be coerced to act through the authoritarian whims of the state. Yet ...Read more

Don't let Democrats federalize elections

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

I'm sorry, but you have no constitutional "right" to vote by mail. You have no constitutional "right" to vote six days after an election is over. Nor do you have any "right" to censor information related to an election. Not even during a pandemic.

This week, the Supreme Court ruled that a federal court was not empowered to overwrite Wisconsin's...Read more

Mike Lindell, not Yamiche Alcindor, is the hero

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

MyPillow CEO Michael Lindell, a self-made former crack addict, is going to transform 75% of his manufacturing capacity to make 10,000 cotton face masks per day by the end of the week, ramping up production to 50,000 a day in a month. That sounds like a patriotic act to me, especially given that Lindell is undertaking the effort without being ...Read more

It's fine to talk about how this crisis ends

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

If I followed all my doctor's instructions to the letter, life would be excruciating. It would be tantamount to having Michael Bloomberg make my life choices, which is to say my life wouldn't be worth living. Human beings have never been as risk-averse as experts want them to be. We instinctively calculate the costs and benefits of engaging in ...Read more

Coronavirus is the Chinese government's curse upon the world

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

The World Health Organization and other sensitive souls have instructed us to stop referring to the new strain of coronavirus as the "Wuhan" or "Chinese" flu because of the racist connotations. I'm disinclined to curb my speech to placate Chinese propagandists, and it seems to me the aversion to those terms is less about racism than about ...Read more

Biden owes Clarence Thomas an apology

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

On the day Chuck Schumer was threatening Supreme Court justices in front of pack of a cheering partisans, Representative Ayanna Pressley told the same crowd: "We have two alleged sexual predators on the bench of the highest court of the land, with the power to determine our reproductive freedoms. I still believe Anita Hill. And I still believe ...Read more

Chuck Schumer's attack on the Supreme Court is despicable

From the Right / David Harsanyi /

"If, then, the courts of justice are to be considered as the bulwarks of a limited Constitution against legislative encroachments, this consideration will afford a strong argument for the permanent tenure of judicial offices," argued Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 78.

If we ever needed a pristine example of why justices are bestowed ...Read more
