The Fear Factor in Republican Politics

From the Right / Mona Charen /

In the hundred thousandth example of his disordered psyche, the former president has stated on his social network that Gen. Mark Milley is guilty of "treason."

This is not new, but that shouldn't diminish our outrage. On at least 24 occasions, the former president has accused critics of treason. Now Trump has upped the ante by including a ...Read more

Our Dangerous Narcissists

From the Right / Mona Charen /

If you're like me, you've gotten a bellyful of AI analysis, speculation and dire warnings over the past few months. Alongside hopes of cancer cures, obedient home robots, personalized tutors, energy efficiency and wildlife preservation, we've heard from leaders in the field that AI will definitely ... kill us all. Soooo, that somewhat dims ...Read more

Stop Hid'n Biden

From the Right / Mona Charen /

Our octogenarian president traveled 8,000 miles to meet with India's premier, Narendra Modi, and to attend the G20 summit in New Delhi. He then flew another 2,000 miles to visit America's new pal, Vietnam -- all over the course of just five days. That's a demanding trip, even for a younger person. After meeting for several hours with the general...Read more

Pro-Lifers Should Change Tactics

From the Right / Mona Charen /

This November, Pennsylvanians will elect a new judge to the state's Supreme Court. The contest is shaping up as another donnybrook pitting pro-life and pro-choice forces against one another. It doesn't require a Ph.D. in political science to guess how this one is going to turn out. Pro-choicers have won every single ballot contest since the ...Read more

Change the Format of Debates

From the Right / Mona Charen /

The Milwaukee debate was a travesty. Not that the moderators asked the wrong questions (though, seriously, UFOs?) or that the candidates gave the wrong answers -- rather, the entire format is guaranteed to elicit the kind of behavior that least conduces to good leadership.

There should be no live audiences at debates. Live audiences are going ...Read more

Biden's Age Might Not Be a Problem

From the Right / Mona Charen /

Confession: For the past couple of years, I fell into the "Biden shouldn't run again" camp. Too old. Better not to ask Americans to reelect a man who will be 82 in November of 2024 and ... you know the rest. Nikki Haley summed it up tactlessly in April: "The idea that he would make it until 86 years old is not something that I think is likely." ...Read more

Trump Supporters Are Responsible for Their Choices

From the Right / Mona Charen /

I applaud people attempting to bridge divides in America, so two cheers to the New York Times' David Brooks for taking a stab at understanding Donald Trump's popularity from the point of view of his supporters. Why not three cheers? Read on.

Brooks writes that most people in elite circles think of themselves as the forces of "progress and ...Read more

Trump's Trials Will Be a Step Toward Truth

From the Right / Mona Charen /

It's a little hard to recall now, but last year, Donald Trump was in eclipse. In July 2022, half of GOP primary voters expressed a desire to move on from Trump. His anointed candidates fared poorly in November, and even some of his most ardent backers, including the Murdochs, were eyeing other options. If he could be relegated to the rearview ...Read more

Jason Aldean Thinks He's Been Misunderstood. He Hasn't.

From the Right / Mona Charen /

Jason Aldean is full of righteous indignation that people are outraged by his music video "Try That in a Small Town."

Against a montage of rioters pitching rocks and Molotov cocktails, masked criminals robbing convenience stores and protesters flipping off cops, Aldean presents himself as a wholesome contrast. There he is, clad in jeans and a ...Read more

Trump on the World Stage Was Cringeworthy

From the Right / Mona Charen /

One of the most absurd claims the leading candidate for the GOP nomination makes about himself and his term in office is that he restored global respect to the United States. He said it frequently when he was in office, and stressed to Bret Baier three weeks ago that he's running again "because I want to make America great again. We had great --...Read more

The Supreme Court Was Right to Strike Down Race Preferences

From the Right / Mona Charen /

When considering the knotty problem of affirmative action, it's important to bear in mind, as some of the Supreme Court's dissenters failed to do, that the issue is no longer black versus white, in every sense of that term. We are a multiethnic country, and discriminating against one minority (Asians) to benefit African Americans and whites is ...Read more
