The Shameful Supreme Court Protests Threaten The American Order!

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

There was something ridiculous about the half-a-dozen protestors in "Handmaid's Tale" costumes showing up at Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett's house, with one of them explaining to a reporter that Barrett, as an adoptive mother, doesn't know what it's like to carry a child to term. Never mind that the Justice has given birth five times. ...Read more

We Need To Take The Fentanyl Crisis More Seriously

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

The United States is in the grips of a fentanyl crisis that doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves.

Yes, it's important who owns Twitter, and interesting what some Republicans might have texted former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows after the 2020 election, but none of this matches the significance of a hideously insidious ...Read more

Scalia Was Right -- Again

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

Justice Antonin Scalia was among the most prescient Supreme Court justices in American history, and the firestorm over the leak of Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion overturning Roe is a reminder of it.

This effort isn't going to succeed, nor should it. That ...Read more

Let Disney Be An Example

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

Just like that, tyranny has descended on Florida. The state legislature, with the support of Gov. Ron DeSantis, voted to repeal the "special independent district" enjoyed by Disney for half a century.

This is a sign, we are told, of the advent of an American authoritarianism that brooks no dissent. Disney criticizes a measure supported by the ...Read more

We Must Defend Free Speech, and Elon Musk!

From the Right / Rich Lowry /

A year after being named Time magazine's person of the year, Elon Musk is attempting to acquire Twitter.

To listen to Musk's critics, you'd believe it's an act almost on par with Hitler invading Poland not long after being named Time's man of the year in 1938.

A writer for the left-wing website Salon worried that a Musk takeover of Twitter ...Read more
