The Red-State Badge of Courage

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens recently released perhaps the most tasteless political ad ever as he runs in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate.

The ad begins with the Republican hopeful, who resigned the governorship amid revelations of an extra-marital affair in 2018, standing with a shotgun saying, "I'm Eric Greitens, Navy Seal, and today we...Read more

Brett Sent Us

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

The flyer urging activists to protest in front of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch's Maryland home offers two reasons for violating the privacy of a public servant and his family.

The first: President Donald Trump nominated Gorsuch.

The message is clear: Any individuals successfully nominated to the Supreme Court by a Republican ...Read more

The Student Loan Party

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

President Joe Biden is poised to forgive $10,000 in student loan debt for borrowers who earn less than $150,000 per year, or $300,000 per couple, according to multiple news reports.

The median household income in America was $67,521 in 2020 according to the Census Bureau. The very fact that the Democratic administration wants to help people who...Read more

Will Russia's Invasion of Ukraine Spark the Next World War?

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

For years, Jonas Ohman, who founded the Blue/Yellow NGO after Russia invaded Crimea in 2014, believed the West considered Ukraine as "a nuisance." He believed he understood the constant Russian threat to Ukraine, but the West underappreciated the danger.

Russia's invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24 sparked another "World War" and demonstrated the ...Read more

Biden Misses the Mark

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

After President Joe Biden returned to the White House from an overseas trip Tuesday night, he addressed the horrible mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Tuesday that left 19 elementary school students and two teachers dead.

"I am sick and tired of it," Biden said from the Roosevelt Room. "We have to act. And don't tell me ...Read more

California's Epic Homeless Nightmare

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

What's the matter with California? "It's suffering from San Fransickness," which is "pathological altruism," answers Michael Shellenberger, author of the book "San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities."

Too many homeless people. Too little common sense. Too much magical thinking.

Shellenberger is running for governor, with a platform to ...Read more

Supreme Intimidation

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Let's call the mass gatherings held outside the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh what they are: They're not protests; they are mob intimidation.

When activists gather and chant in front of justices' homes after an unprecedented leak of a draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade, they are warning the...Read more

Et Tu, J.D.?

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

In 2016, "Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance did not have a lot of good things to say about Donald Trump. Tuesday, Vance won the Ohio Republican primary for U.S. Senate with the help of Trump's endorsement.

Vance, a venture capitalist who wrote with heartbreaking detail about his working-class family's battles with addiction and economic ...Read more

Student Loans: Payment Optional

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

Last year, President Joe Biden nixed the idea of a huge student loan forgiveness package when he told The New York Times' David Brooks, "The idea that you go to Penn and you're paying a total of 70,000 bucks a year and the public should pay for that? I don't agree."

Biden was right. Since most Americans don't graduate with college degrees, why ...Read more

The Masks Are Off

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

The federal mask mandate on planes, trains and public transportation never was about "the science." It was about politics.

No wonder then that U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle of the Middle District of Florida tossed the mandate in a 59-page ruling Monday.

At this moment, it is not clear if the Department of Justice will seek an ...Read more

The Silence of the Lambs

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

"Disinvitation season" used to be a season -- when student activists worked to disinvite usually conservative commencement speakers.

Now it's "cancel culture" -- a year-round 24/7 pursuit to muzzle all who fail to embrace ideological purity.

The internet enables people with too much time on their hands to vet not only speakers but pretty much ...Read more

Elon Musk: The Disruptors' Disruptor

From the Right / Debra Saunders /

In the beginning, the rich nerds who launched tech startups saw themselves as "disruptors." They had power, swagger and money.

But a funny thing happened on the way to their revolution: The tech startups became giants, and then the giants became enforcers of the status quo. The erstwhile disruptors became America's information oligarchs.

It's ...Read more
