Biden Persisently Acts in a Manner Contrary to the Interests of the Median Citizen!

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Last June, the Biden administration unveiled its "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism." Despite its anodyne-sounding name, the "National Strategy" was anything but anodyne. The pamphlet represented the logical culmination of the Left's cynical use of the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot as a means of ginning up large-scale, ...Read more

After Horrific SCOTUS Leak, Justices Must Plow Ahead and Overturn Roe

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The scandalous leak of a full draft of Justice Samuel Alito's five-justice-strong majority opinion in this term's marquee Supreme Court case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, is an event without precedent in the Court's history.

If Alito's coalition holds, the leaked majority opinion, a February-dated first draft whose ...Read more

Musk Must Be Held Accountable to His Own Professed Word

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The impending acquisition of Twitter by the world's wealthiest person, Elon Musk, is one of the most improbable developments out of the business world -- and, indeed, the political world -- in decades. Though a fairly modest percentage of adult Americans use Twitter, at least when compared with more popular social media outlets like Facebook and...Read more

Against 'Principled Loserdom'

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

I was in New Haven this past week for a couple of events at Yale, one of which was a William F. Buckley, Jr. Program debate for a primarily college-age audience on "common good conservatism." During the debate, I argued on behalf of the more "muscular," more forceful and less "liberal" approach to political economy and political gamesmanship ...Read more

The Civilizational Suicide of 'Criminal Justice Reform'

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The long and disturbing rap sheet of Frank James, the black nationalist New York City subway shooter arrested on Wednesday and charged by federal prosecutors with one count of committing a terrorist act against a mass transportation system, ought to serve as a national wake-up call. The 24 hour-plus nerve-racking manhunt ended in anticlimactic...Read more

The Great Sovereignty Reclamation Movement

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The great debates of our time are not exclusively those hard-hitting ones affecting human anthropology and political community -- how many genders exist, what criteria we should look for in prospective immigrants, and so forth. Certainly, many of our most notable debates do implicate those most foundational rifts. But some of our ...Read more

Hunter Biden's Laptop Story Confirms: Rein in Big Tech or Cease To Be a Free People

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

On the precipice of the regime-defining 2020 presidential election, Facebook and Twitter committed their "Pearl Harbor attack" against the incumbent president, Donald Trump, and in dutiful favor of the regnant regime's favored candidate, Joe Biden.

In an October move that would presage the collapse of the "public"-"private" distinction during ...Read more

Ketanji Brown Jackson is a Left-Wing Ideologue Who Must Be Rejected!

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The issue with Ketanji Brown Jackson, the 51-year-old federal appellate judge who is our senile president's Supreme Court nominee, is not necessarily her on-paper qualifications. By most traditional metrics, she is "qualified": She has served as both a district court and appellate court judge, served as vice chair of the U.S. Sentencing ...Read more

Republicans, Embrace the Culture War and Cruise to Victory

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

For conservatives and Republicans, the present flare-up in Ukraine has shone a spotlight on the extent to which there is profound foreign policy disagreement within the broader ranks. From the ultra-hawkish calls for a U.S.-imposed no-fly zone or even the assassination of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin from the likes of Rep. Adam Kinzinger (...Read more

The End of the Unipolar Moment

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The defeat of Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan in World War II ushered in the Cold War era. For the four and a half decades between the defeat of fascism and the collapse of communism, global affairs unfolded within a bipolar backdrop of "mutually assured" destruction between the two nuclear superpowers: the United States and the Soviet ...Read more

Clarity on Russia, Ukraine and the American National Interest

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

More so than perhaps any story in my adult lifetime, there is now an astonishing amount of disinformation pertaining to Vladimir Putin's war of aggression in Ukraine. Russian disinformation and Russian propaganda, by now infamous for any American with even a cursory knowledge of the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, has of course ...Read more

Of Course Vladimir Putin Invaded Ukraine Under Joe Biden's Watch

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

In February 2014, Russian kingpin Vladimir Putin invaded and subsequently annexed the Crimean Peninsula, which had been under Ukrainian jurisdiction. The timing was no accident, coming as it did only a handful of months after then-President Barack Obama reneged upon his own chemical weapons "red line" for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, ...Read more

The View From Budapest

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

I'm writing from Budapest, the beautiful, Danube-bestriding Hungarian capital. Hungary, though a faraway land and modest in both size and population, has played an outsize role in the American conservative conscience for the past half-decade or so. After just a few days, it is not difficult to understand why. Hungary, under Prime Minister ...Read more
