The Accidentally Elected

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

The last time the American economic situation was this bad, then-President James Earl Carter Jr. got attacked by a killer rabbit and nearly cried in front of a live television audience lamenting the great malaise. Voters swept Ronald Reagan into the presidency to restore American confidence and take us from mourning in America to morning in ...Read more

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

This past week, the average price of a gallon of gasoline hit a record high in the United States. Some states are regularly seeing prices above five dollars for a gallon of gas.

Hysteria Rules the Day

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Progressives claim no judge should have the power to tell them they can or cannot have an abortion. They do not want to admit it, but they are agreeing with Justice Samuel Alito's point in the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion of Dobbs vs. Jackson Women's Health. The Court should never have entered the abortion fray.

In 1973, seven men on the ...Read more

The Certitude of Ineptitude

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

I really am flummoxed by the ineptitude of President Joe Biden and his chief of staff, Ron Klain. Biden has been a Washington politician for half a century, including eight years as vice president and before that a senior senator. Klain is a consummate Washington insider, having worked for Janet Reno, Al Gore, Biden and others.

The Greatest Event in History

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Sometime slightly less than 2,000 years ago on a Friday, a carpenter's son stood silent before the fifth Roman governor of the Roman province of Judea, Pontius Pilate. The local leaders in Jerusalem had plotted to kill the man, named Jesus. The plot sped with unchecked momentum when gossip began spreading Jesus had raised another man named ...Read more

The Worst-Played Hand in Politics Today

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Former U.S. Sen. David Perdue had not intended to jump into the Georgia gubernatorial race when he did. Just a few months before, Perdue had still been telling people he was backing incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp despite pressure from the Trump campaign. He needed some time to distance himself from his public support for Kemp.

The Biden Recession Is Coming

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Larry Summers served as secretary of the Treasury, director of the National Economic Council, and president of Harvard University. He is not a dumb man. He is a liberal Democrat with a Democrat's understanding of economic policy.

On Feb. 4, 2021, writing in the Washington Post, Summers wrote of President Joe Biden's proposed economic stimulus ...Read more

The Mass Psychosis of the Western World

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

In June of 1374, people across Europe broke out into spontaneous dance. What some scholars believe was actually a medical condition, most believe was a mass psychogenic illness -- an illness of the mind. The people began to dance and the dancing spread. Some danced for days. Some danced until they died. Some had heart attacks or broke bones.

Guns, Babies and the USA

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Alabama and Ohio have passed versions of "constitutional carry." That is a law that allows a lawful owner of a firearm to carry that firearm without additional governmental permission. Georgia's state House and Senate have both passed versions and a committee is set to reconcile differences. Georgia should have the law passed in the next week, ...Read more

Basic Truths About Oil

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

In 2020, President Joe Biden declared war on oil and gas in America. In a Democratic primary debate, Biden declared, "No more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry. No more drilling including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period. It ends." High gas prices are all part of his plan.

The other day, Biden declared...Read more

The State of Disunion

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

By now you may have forgotten President Joe Biden gave his State of the Union address last week. On Monday, Biden walked across the White House lawn alone and in a mask. On Tuesday, he walked into a crowd of House members rejoicing that no more masks were needed. It was the perfect metaphor for Biden at governance and Biden at speech.

First, ...Read more

An Unserious People Confront a Serious Man

From the Right / Erick Erickson /

Call Russian President Vladimir Putin a dictator. Call him an autocrat. Call him a totalitarian. Call him whatever you want, but make sure you understand he is serious. He also knows the West is not. He has brought war to the West's doorstep.

On Dec. 5, 1989, Putin was running a KGB office for the Soviet Union in Dresden, Germany. The Berlin ...Read more
