The Lord brings us hope in dark times

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Last week, on my syndicated radio program, I told my listeners that even though there was probably fraud in the election, it would not be enough to overcome the margin of Joe Biden's victory. Joe Biden is President-elect.

I think there probably were some acts of fraud. In Pennsylvania, however, President Donald Trump's legal team has abandoned ...Read more

Evil is watching

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

"On November 7, 2000, American voters went to the polls in what turned out to be one of the closest presidential contests in U.S. history -- an election campaign during which there was a notable absence of serious discussion of the al Qaeda threat or terrorism. Election night became a 36-day legal fight. Until the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling on ...Read more

Voters rejected the Republicans' messenger, the Democrats' message

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. Contrary to some highly irresponsible claims, Biden will not win by theft but by people actually voting for him. It frustrates me to see my own party demanding lawfully cast ballots not be counted.

I am opposed to counting ballots that show up after Election Day. I think ballots need to...Read more

Calm down; God's will be done, and Jesus reigns supreme

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

This election is almost over. Its end cannot arrive soon enough. Americans are exhausted. Many of them have already voted. Some states are reaching or exceeding their 2016 presidential turnout. If the polls are correct -- and there is reason to think they are, given the fixes employed in 2018 that produced mostly accurate polling -- Joe Biden is...Read more

Tsunami warnings are sounding for the GOP, even as they paint rosy pictures

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

In the RealClearPolitics polling average, Joe Biden has a 4.2% lead in the battleground states at the time of this writing. That is more relevant than the national polls. Had 2016 not happened, we'd all be writing the obituary of the Trump campaign right now.

By any normal metric, President Donald Trump is toast, and the GOP is losing the ...Read more

Progressives pronounce and Orwell rears his head

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

On Monday of last week, to use the phrase "sexual preference" was completely acceptable. As recently as last month, multiple gay rights publications used the phrase. Leon Panetta had used the phrase in the past couple of years. Joe Biden has used the phrase this year.

Merriam-Webster considered "sexual preference" to be just another version of ...Read more

Less than a month to go and the race is still in play

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

In 2016, I was convinced Hillary Clinton would win. Her losing forced on some needed humility about my perspective on politics. Now I'm routinely accused of saying Donald Trump will lose or of betraying my values by saying I'd vote for the guy. There's not really any winning, or even fun to be had, by doing what I perceive as calling balls and ...Read more

Trump needs to help Christian refugees and those fleeing communism.

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

America has a long tradition of being open to those fleeing oppression. That tradition has been slowed by the Trump administration, and this issue has been absorbed into the big-picture battle on immigration issues as a whole.

It makes sense to crack down on fraud, but not at the expense of those fleeing communism and religious oppression.

The...Read more

Mainstream media ignores peace in the Middle East because it was engineered by Trump and Kushner

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

I have noted before that I grew up in Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates. From 1980-1990, my family lived in an ungated community in the middle of the city down the street from the Iranian Hospital with the Jumeirah American School just one long block up the road. We walked to school every day.

The school changed its name to the American ...Read more

Mainstream media should be crucifying Woodward for withholding audio records as American bodies piled up

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

The President purportedly withheld bad news about the coronavirus to avoid a panic and, in so doing, allegedly cost American lives. That is what the American media and the Democrats claim. Meanwhile, a reporter had all of this on tape and withheld this very newsworthy item, even as bodies were piling up in freezer trucks parked by overrun ...Read more

The violence is not new

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

In 2008, around the time of the Republican National Convention, a white 20-something male approached the Texas Governor's Mansion and threw a Molotov cocktail at it. The mansion burned down. The case remains unsolved, though federal and state authorities have long presumed it was a left-leaning anarchist. In fact, around the same time, left-wing...Read more

The bounce and the aftermath

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

If the election were held today, Joe Biden would most likely win. Democrats could probably capture the Senate. The problem for Democrats is that the election is not today and the Republicans have had a good convention.

After the Democrats' convention, President Donald Trump went up five points with independent voters in a CBS News poll. I am ...Read more
