Biden Punts on Pot

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

There is one issue where President Joe Biden has not moved further left and in lockstep with other liberal leaders: marijuana. The oldest man to take the oath of office -- he's now 78 -- just can't bring himself to support legalization.

On the 2020 campaign trail, Biden claimed he wanted to decriminalize it and leave legal questions for states ...Read more

Who Will Prosecute the Prosecutors?

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Fun fact: It took special counsel Robert Mueller less than two years to release his report into Russian interference in the 2016 election, dubbed Crossfire Hurricane. It's been more than two years since then Attorney General William Barr named John Durham to head a probe into the origins of the Russian investigation.

One investigation resulted ...Read more

California Targets Free Speech and Charities

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

After the Supreme Court issued a 6-3 ruling Thursday that invalidated California's practice of demanding that charities disclose their largest donors to the state attorney general, lawyer Casey Mattox of the conservative Americans for Prosperity Foundation marveled at the coalition that came together to fight the machine.

When the California ...Read more

Hunter Biden's Midas Touch

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

President Joe Biden clearly has no problem with his son Hunter Biden cashing in on the family name. It's something Biden has in common with former President Donald Trump.

According to Forbes, Trump's estimated wealth dropped from an estimated $3.6 billion in 2016 to $2.4 billion in April -- which means he lost a fortune while in office. ...Read more

Jan. 6 or June 2020

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

President Joe Biden released his National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism on Tuesday. A fact sheet on the measure cautioned that narratives about election fraud, the Jan. 6 Capitol breach and COVID-19 "will almost certainly spur" extremist groups to engage in domestic violence this year.

Biden remains fixated on the events of Jan. 6 ...Read more

Gov. Newsom, Kevin Cooper Is Guilty

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Kevin Cooper used to tell reporters that he wanted DNA testing, which didn't exist when he went to trial, to prove that he was not guilty of the four 1983 murders that put him on California's death row. If the tests implicated him, he said, he would drop his appeals.

In 2000, Cooper got those tests -- and they nailed him.

DNA tests placed ...Read more

Bad Election Rules and Stupid Media Tricks

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

A crisis is a terrible thing to waste, the saying goes. So Democrats have been working to make state election law changes implemented to make voting safer during COVID-19 both permanent and broader. And they're pushing federal legislation to impose their methods on unwilling states.

They're framing their play as "voting rights" -- as if anyone ...Read more

Without Dirty Mining, You Can't Make Clean Cars

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Before the November election, candidate Joe Biden's campaign let it be known that the Democratic nominee would part ways with environmental activists by supporting mining in the United States for technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Unnamed sources from Team Biden told Reuters: "A Biden administration would emphasize green energy,...Read more

Who Is That Masked Man? Your President

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

After the CDC announced on May 13 that fully vaccinated Americans don't have to wear masks, many big news organizations followed not with stories of celebration, but warnings that the guidance was confusing for businesses and governments and jarring to those who had gotten used to working from home.

This is The New York Times' America: People ...Read more

Bet On It. Trump Is Running.

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Let's not kid ourselves. Former -- yes, former -- President Donald Trump wants to run for president in 2024, and so he shall.

The story some Republicans like to tell themselves -- that Trump will not run again for the White House because he knows he can't win and he's smart enough to see the glory in being a GOP kingmaker -- is wishful thinking...Read more

The Social Justice Mob Tries to Do to Tech What It Did to Academia

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

The same tactics used to suppress dissent in academia -- with the goal of making colleges "safe spaces" that feel "welcoming" to snowflakes -- have graduated to the tech world.

Fortunately, rather than let activists do to their startups what they did to academia, some CEOs are fighting back.

This episode begins when a new employee at Basecamp,...Read more
