Yes On School Choice -- But It Requires Parental Involvement

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Question my sanity, but I'm considering running in this election to recall California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. Here's a big reason why.

No one doubts that bad K-12 public school teachers exist. There is a phenomenon known as the "turkey trot," in which bad teachers wind up in the worst schools.

Why? There is a connection between bad ...Read more

On Race, Can We All Lighten Up?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

On a beautiful Sunday morning, I was out of town for a business meeting in the city of Santa Barbara, California, an affluent area where the rich and famous live. Demographically, it isn't exactly Wakanda. Before getting on the 101 Freeway for the long drive back to Los Angeles, I pulled into a gas station to fill up.

Just as I got out of my ...Read more

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Vice President Kamala Harris just returned from Guatemala where she discussed the "root cause" of the post-election "surge" of "migrants" to our southern border. Harris said, "People leave home ... because they don't have opportunities there to fulfill their basic needs like feeding their children or keeping a roof over their head, or they're ...Read more

Father's Day: Fatherless, America's Top Domestic Problem

From the Right / Larry Elder /

A new powerful new documentary called "The Streets Were My Father" features three Chicago men, two Hispanics and one Black, who grew up without fathers. All three did hard time for serious offenses, including murder.

The film, with no narrator, just lets the men talk. None blames "systemic racism." All concede they made bad choices, but choices...Read more

Jan. 6 Commission: Do Democrats Really Want 'the Facts'?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

After impeaching President Donald Trump for the so-called insurrection of Jan. 6, 2021, House Democrats want to, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "establish a bipartisan agreement for a 9/11-style commission to report on the facts and the causes of the attack." Before the Senate vote to establish this commission, Senate Majority Leader Chuck ...Read more

On Reparations: John F. Kennedy vs. Robert F. Kennedy

From the Right / Larry Elder /

When did the civil rights movement go off the rails?

The answer is when proponents went from justly demanding equal rights to unjustly demanding equal results. As to exactly when this occurred, that's more difficult to answer. But consider statements, made five years apart, from the Kennedy brothers, John F. and Robert F.

Neither ...Read more

Fake Outrage Over Cheney 'Ouster'; Dems 'Ousted' Bernie Twice

From the Right / Larry Elder /

House Republican leadership removed Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., from her leadership position, a position her indignant liberal defenders likely did not even know existed until days ago. Cheney became Republican roadkill when she not only voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump but also became a vocal critic of his alleged "big lie" about the ...Read more

When Have Dems Needed Evidence?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

"Experts" predicted 1 million jobs would be created in April. The actual number fell far short, at 266,000. Republicans warned that overly generous COVID-19 relief benefits create a disincentive to work.

The day before this disappointing jobs report, Bloomberg wrote: "In earnings calls and business surveys, executives often blame stimulus ...Read more

White-Savior Movies, Bad; White-Savior Politicians, Good

From the Right / Larry Elder /

I recently came across the term "white-savior movies." According to critics, this is a type of film that features a white hero or heroine entering the life of a helpless, troubled, often clueless Black person and, as one Black critic puts it, "swoops in" to turn his or her life around.

In an article called "Top 5 Most Cringeworthy White Savior ...Read more
