We are all deplorables now

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

Four days after he described Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, as a "very credible witness," President Donald Trump could no longer contain his feelings or constrain his instincts.

With the fate of his Supreme Court nominee in the balance, Trump let his "Make America Great Again" rally attendees in Mississippi know ...Read more

The USMCA is a victory on trade

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

In baseball, when a team trades a player to another team each side expects a benefit in return. Not so in recent years when it comes to trade agreements between the U.S. and other countries.

President Trump has been right in his criticism of NAFTA and other trade deals that have left the United States at a disadvantage, sidelining American ...Read more

By not being a team player, Flake served the nation

From the Right / George Will /

WASHINGTON -- Preferring verbal felicity to practical wisdom, a character in a Benjamin Disraeli novel quipped, "A majority is always the best repartee." Not really. Open societies that want to remain so should prefer persuasion to raw power, even the power of majorities. Which is why Republican Sen. Jeff Flake served the nation, its highest ...Read more

A few opinions on behalf of religion

From the Right / Mona Charen /

These have been hard times for American institutions. Over the past four to five decades, confidence in nearly every institution of American life has declined. A 2018 Gallup survey found, for example, that trust in Congress stood at 42 percent in 1973 and dropped to 11 percent this year. Only 29 percent of Americans gave high ratings to public ...Read more

FBI should investigate the Senate Democrat wrecking machine next

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

How did we get here? The Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination circus didn't happen by accident. The emergence of incredible -- and by "incredible," I mean the literal Merriam-Webster definition of "too extraordinary and improbable to be believed" -- accusers in the 11th hour was no mistake.

It is my contention that this grand unearth-and-destroy ...Read more

Teaching -- If you don't love it, leave it

SAN DIEGO -- It's the beginning of a new school year, and already acrimony is in the air. America's teachers are mad as heck, and they're not going to take it anymore.

That's the message from a recent cover story in Time magazine that no doubt left many readers wondering why anyone in their right minds would enter the classroom these days.

Liberal Post wants Kavanaugh and his white male supporters dead, castrated and fed to pigs

For Washington Post readers, we offer a quiz. Guess which one of these now-deleted tweets from Washington, D.C., Catholic college professors about the Brett Kavanaugh battle and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick is considered scandalous and newsworthy.

1. "Swetnick is 55 y/o. Kavanaugh is 52 y/o. Since when do senior girls hang with freshmen ...Read more

Social media mob rule should not determine Kavanaugh's fate

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

This week, Brett Kavanaugh's fate will likely be determined. The FBI will fact-find the various decades-old allegations and present its findings for the Senate Judiciary Committee, and maybe more importantly, the court of public opinion, to judge.

Thus far, he's been judged rather harshly, with many willing to forgo due process and the ...Read more

I tell you what's wrong with American leftists, part IV

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

When I was in graduate school, I learned a lot about the left. One lesson was that while most liberals and conservatives abide by society's rules of order and decency, most leftists do not feel bound to live by these same rules.

I watched the way leftist Vietnam War protesters treated fellow students and professors. I watched left-wing students...Read more

Delay, deceive and destroy

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Who believes another FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh will be the end of it? If the FBI finds nothing to support Christine Blasey Ford's testimony that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party, will it be ...Read more

Are Republicans born wimps?

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

Republican leaders are "a bunch of wimps," said Jerry Falwell Jr.

Conservatives and Christians need to stop electing "nice guys."

"The US needs street fighters like Donald Trump at every level of government because the liberal fascists Dems are playing for keeps."

So tweeted the son and namesake of the founder of the Moral Majority, and he ...Read more

Evangelicals need a higher call than street fighting

From the Right / Michael Gerson /

WASHINGTON -- Baptists tend to be teetotalers, but some obviously make an exception for the potent Kool-Aid they serve at the White House. It has produced (metaphorically) a different kind of belligerent intoxication.

Consider a recent tweet by Jerry Falwell Jr.: "Conservatives & Christians need to stop electing 'nice guys'. They might make ...Read more

America should do away with the death penalty

From the Right / George Will /

WASHINGTON -- Without being aware of it, Vernon Madison might become a footnote in constitutional law because he is barely aware of anything. For more than 30 years, Alabama, with a tenacity that deserves a better cause, has been trying to execute him for the crime he certainly committed, the 1985 murder of a police officer. Twice the state ...Read more

Assault on Kavanaugh is the Democrat's playbook

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court was approved on an 11-10 party-line vote Friday in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Yet his confirmation is not assured.

Sen. Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona, has demanded and gotten as the price of his vote on the floor, a weeklong delay. And the GOP Senate has agreed to Democrat demands...Read more

Kavanaugh hearings put confirmation process on trial -- and the verdict is guilty

SAN DIEGO -- I'll just say it: I believe both of them.

In this climate, I'll get hammered by loyal partisans on both the right and the left for reaching such a conclusion. But I don't care.

We're living at a time when a lot of people can decide whether testimony is believable even before hearing it. Don't confuse us with facts, we're too busy ...Read more

In the midst of dehumanization, we saw two humans laid bare

From the Right / Michael Gerson /

WASHINGTON -- In the end, everything -- every blasted thing -- gets sucked into the polarization black hole, never to emerge again.

That now includes the Supreme Court. It is not, of course, that this process has never been political before. But it has never been more clearly a function of contending culture war narratives.

Progressives saw ...Read more

This carnival has had little to do with truth

From the Right / Mona Charen /

Karl Marx, commenting on the ascension of Louis Napoleon, wrote, "History repeats itself: The first time as tragedy, the second time as farce." The drama over Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation has reversed the order. It began as farce. Protesters dressed in "The Handmaid's Tale" red capes lined the halls of senate office buildings. Senator Kamala ...Read more

Daniels' book promoted by publisher in a way to sell the most copies

It's fascinating when the national media's literary tastemakers make room for the transparently tasteless. Time magazine offered its picks for "The Best New Books to Read Fall 2018," and two ticks down from former first lady Michelle Obama's memoir was "Full Disclosure" by anti-Trump porn star/stripper Stormy Daniels. She "promises to divulge ...Read more

How abortion polarized America

From the Right / Michael Barone /

"Here's my question," tweets legal scholar Jeffrey A. Sachs, obviously in response to the controversy over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "what is the alternative reality where Roe was never decided, levels of partisan polarization are identical to our own, and the SCOTUS appointments process is markedly better?"

Here's the problem with...Read more

Ford's testimony was emotional, but Kavanaugh expressed frustration many in U.S. feel

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

At 2 p.m. Thursday, it looked as though Brett Kavanaugh's fate was sealed. Professor Christine Blasey Ford had just wrapped up a stunning and remarkable five hours of testimony before the Senate Judicial Committee and, indeed, the world.

Her emotional recollection of the assault she alleges she suffered 36 years ago was powerful and credible, ...Read more
