The American Troubles

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

The left in the United States has incredible clout to push their narratives nearly frictionlessly through cultural institutions. CNN has now multiple times had on Justice Sam Alito's former neighbor, who is revealed to be a partisan progressive and, by virtue of a Supreme Court Justice and his wife unwilling to perpetuate the story, the ...Read more

Discredited and Clueless

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

This week, an important revelation happened in Hunter Biden's criminal trial. After 51 supposed intelligence experts declared his laptop and the information thereon to be a Russian disinformation campaign, it turns out the laptop and its contents are real.

In 2020, media outlets ganged up on the New York Post, encouraging the former ...Read more

Someone Needs to Go to Jail

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

The "Australian Ballot" is the ballot Americans know and trust. First used in Australia in 1856, the ballot is what we know as the secret ballot. Americans trust that they can go to the polls and privately vote and no one will find out who they voted for. States even prohibit people taking pictures of their ballots to discourage voter ...Read more

Joy Cometh in the Morning

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Last Friday, 3,943 miles south of the North Pole, here in Macon, Georgia, the Northern Lights were visible with the naked eye. They twirled and danced across the sky. They left pink and purple hues and colored the moon. I drove my family out into farm country away from city lights and we beheld the spectacle. The next day, I posted on Substack...Read more

Biden's Impeachable Moment

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

On Dec. 18, 2019, House Democrats impeached Donald Trump. They found he had withheld congressionally approved arms and aid to Ukraine in order to influence Ukraine's decision on an investigation of Joe Biden. On May 8, 2024, Joe Biden announced he would withhold congressionally approved arms and aid to Israel in order to influence Israel's ...Read more

A Lack of Imagination

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Some House Republicans have decided they will oust Speaker Mike Johnson. Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, among others, argue that the Democrats are already in control of the House by proxy, so make it reality. A sizable segment of the Republican base feels the same way. They lack the imagination to think...Read more

The Most Disturbing Part of It

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

The Big Ten, the Pac-12 and the Ivy League are overrun with antisemitic students protesting in favor of Hamas. They claim they support Palestinians, but "Globalize the intifada" and "Palestine will be free from the river to the sea" are explicit genocidal slogans of Hamas. Democrats insist words mean things. These words mean the students are ...Read more

Must-See TV

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

You will have to forgive a piece that is not at all about politics and the current cultural contretemps of modern American society. Instead, I want to use these words to recommend as forcefully as possible a television show that you should be watching. But first, you must have a history lesson.

In the 16th century, Ferdinand Magellan ...Read more

Polling Is Not Leadership

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

In the mid-'90s, President Bill Clinton hired famed pollster Dick Morris to triangulate Clinton's path to victory in 1996. Morris told Clinton that polling is not designed to tell someone what to do. Rather, polling is designed to tell one how to sell what they want to do. President Joe Biden has forgotten that lesson and now, instead of ...Read more

Not Exactly Something Normal

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Christianity is a weird religion. Other religions have a version of the "Golden Rule." Other religions have a watery creation. Other religions have sacrifice. Other religions have mercy. Other religions have a lot of what Christianity has. But they are all so much more the same, and Christianity itself is so divergent it is not exactly ...Read more

You Do Not Have to Cling to the World. You Can Cling to Christ.

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

The world is headed into Holy Week, the holiest of times for the world's more than 2 billion Christians. Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth entered Jerusalem as a king on Palm Sunday; was tortured, crucified, killed and buried on Friday; and rose again on Easter Sunday. It is one of the defining weeks in human history. As we head there, ...Read more
