Democrats Will Not Benefit From Their Own Republic-Destabilizing Lawfare

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Nearly 14 months after the first of four unprecedented criminal prosecutions against former President Donald Trump commenced in earnest, the Democrat-lawfare complex got its man: The Soviet show trial in "Justice" Juan Merchan's dingy New York City courtroom produced its preordained "guilty" verdict.

It is perhaps hackneyed to observe that, ...Read more

Post-Trump Verdict, Will the American Right Finally Wake Up?

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Like many others in the punditry space, I am a lawyer by background. I practiced law at a major global law firm. I clerked for a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit. I have published multiple pieces of formal legal scholarship on constitutional issues. I regularly lecture at law schools and present to professional lawyer ...Read more

Democrats Are Stuck With Joe Biden as Their Presidential Nominee

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

President Joe Biden is currently losing the 2024 presidential race to former President Donald Trump. If the election were held tomorrow, Trump would win -- likely convincingly. The fact that this is increasingly obvious, and that Biden finds himself fighting an uphill battle to prolong his already ancient political career, has precipitated ...Read more

Will Democrats Pay a Price for Their Cynical, Crumbling Lawfare Strategy?

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

President Joe Biden, who wears bespoke sneakers to prevent embarrassing collapses and whose command of the English language rivals that of most kindergarteners, is in bad political shape. Uncle Joe's reelection campaign faces an uphill climb, given his disastrous handling of the economy -- including a formal recession and four-decade-high ...Read more

The Making of a Banana Republic

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

It is a presidential election year and a leading candidate for president of the United States, who also happens to be a former president of the United States, is currently a criminal defendant chained to a dingy courtroom four days of the week -- time that he should be spending interacting with voters out on the campaign trail.

That's ...Read more

Joe Biden, Dearborn Shahid, Commits Political Suicide via Hamas Appeasement

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis's ill-fated 2024 presidential campaign was much criticized for being "too online." But Democrats are no less prone to fall into that same trap. Now-Vice President Kamala Harris's 2020 presidential campaign, which generated considerable initial buzz before it abruptly sputtered, was infamous for listening too much to ...Read more

Restore Order and Crush the Campus Jihadist Thugs

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

In his 1790 letter to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, President George Washington reached a stirring conclusion: "May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree, and there ...Read more

Hold Obama-Biden Foreign Policy Responsible for Iran's Unprecedented Attack on Israel

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The terrorist Iranian regime's unprecedented recent attack on Israel, which included 185 drones, 36 cruise missiles and 110 surface-to-surface missiles, is an unambiguous casus belli -- an act of war -- under international law.

Of course, Iranian proxies spread across the Middle East, such as Lebanon-based Hezbollah, Gaza-based Palestinian ...Read more

Trump, Abortion and the 2024 Election

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The ancient Chinese military theorist Sun Tzu taught that a battle is won before it is fought because it is won by choosing the terrain on which it will be fought. If former President Donald Trump and other Republicans on the ballot this fall want to win, they must choose the proper terrain.

That means a focus on key issues that play to ...Read more

John Eastman and the Left's War on the Legal Profession

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

John Eastman is a lawyer, legal scholar and a friend. A former clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, candidate for California attorney general, and dean of Chapman University School of Law, I got to know John during my weeklong 2018 legal fellowship with the Claremont Institute, which he oversaw. We have stayed in touch and done at ...Read more

Go Touch Some Grass

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The shocking and horrific Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse in Baltimore, triggered by the Singaporean-flagged cargo ship Dali striking it during the wee hours of Tuesday morning, has functioned as something of a Rorschach test. That test cuts to the heart of today's hyper-online culture and a concomitant willingness -- perhaps eagerness -- to...Read more
