Will the Conservative Momentum at the Supreme Court Continue This Term?

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The U.S. Supreme Court begins hearing cases for its new term, following its customary summer recess, on Monday, Oct. 3. If this Court term is anything like the most recent one, conservatives and constitutionalists will rejoice. This most recent term, conservatives achieved secured massive wins on abortion (Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health ...Read more

Ron Has Done It Again!

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has done it again. In using already-appropriated government funds to fly 48 illegal alien Venezuelan migrants from San Antonio, Texas, to the tony blue enclave of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, DeSantis has once again demonstrated his mastery of the political game. For at least the second time this year, with the ...Read more

National Conservatism: A Primer for the Uninitiated

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

On Tuesday, the third U.S.-based National Conservatism Conference -- "NatCon 3" -- wrapped up here in Miami. It was the second straight National Conservatism Conference held in Florida, and the largest NatCon conference yet; overall, there have now been three NatCon conferences held in the U.S. since 2019, with additional NatCon conferences ...Read more

Welcome to 2-Tiered America

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Last week, this column focused on the eye-opening recent revelations from Missouri and Louisiana's lawsuit, still ongoing, that exposes the depth and breadth of the collusion between the Biden regime and the oligarchs of Big Tech. Those lightly redacted documents, made public via a Twitter thread from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, ...Read more

The Biden Regime Collapses the 'Public'-'Private' Distinction

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

On Thursday, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, who is also the Show Me State's candidate for U.S. Senate this November, unveiled some very interesting documents that his office, along with the office of Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, have received since the two states jointly filed a potentially pathbreaking lawsuit in May. ...Read more

Lessons From Biden's Reckless Student Loan 'Forgiveness' Plan

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

President Joe Biden's new plan to "cancel" up to $10,000 in student loan debt for those making less than $125,000 annually is at once a dereliction of constitutional duty, a crass political gambit in the lead-up to a contested midterm election and a morally perverse value judgment that lavishes The Regime's insular, well-heeled voting base at ...Read more

The Death of the Bush and Cheney Political Dynasties

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Last Friday, I landed in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to speak at a pro-life summit. The summit organizers had kindly dispatched a van to transport a number of us from the airport, and a U.S. congressman who happened to be on the same arriving flight hopped on to hitch a ride. The congressman, a conservative, was actually not in town for ...Read more

America's Federal Law Enforcement/National Security Apparatus MorphS Into the East German Stasi!

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Monday's shocking images of police sirens blaring outside Mar-a-Lago, former President Donald Trump's magnificent Palm Beach, Florida, estate, will not soon be forgotten.

Much has already been said and written about the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago that precipitated those sirens: "outrageous," "unprecedented," a "crossing of the Rubicon" moment. ...Read more

Why Is Everyone Talking About the Claremont Institute?

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

On Wednesday, Elisabeth Zerofsky of The New York Times Magazine published a lengthy essay titled, "How the Claremont Institute Became a Nerve Center of the American Right." Zerofsky's piece was well-researched, honest and measured, but the same cannot necessarily be said for other recent fulminations against the California-based conservative ...Read more

The New Age of Orwellianism

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

Community organizer and left-wing social activist Saul Alinsky wrote, in his 1971 book "Rules for Radicals," that "he who controls the language controls the masses." Alinsky, whose work profoundly influenced at least one notable fellow Chicagoan, Barack Obama, was in that quip channeling George Orwell's famous dystopian novel, "1984." "...Read more

How Did Democrats Become So Out of Touch With the American People?

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

The president of the United States, equal parts senescent and feckless, garners record-shattering low approval ratings seemingly each week. This week, a new Quinnipiac University survey found that a paltry 31% of Americans approve of the way Joe Biden is handling his job. Among political independents, that number is, somehow, considerably ...Read more

Resign, Joe!

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

It is difficult, perhaps impossible, to describe just how bad President Joe Biden is at his job. Comparisons to Jimmy Carter are pervasive, but trite -- and too flattering to Carter. Perhaps a more apt (and dark) analogy, given how civic strife has reached a fever pitch, is to James Buchanan, historians' typical consensus pick for worst ...Read more

Joe Biden Discovers the Realist Case for the US-Saudi Alliance

From the Right / Josh Hammer /

President Joe Biden, who faces four-decade-high inflation and record-high gasoline prices, is set to depart for the Middle East next week. As part of his trip, he will visit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He may not explicitly beseech the kingdom's precocious crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), for an increase in oil output, but the timing ...Read more
