Why have the American people decided to throw out their political leaders and start over?

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Now that Sen. Bernie Sanders is surging and a populist-left Sanders versus populist-right Trump race looks more and more likely, it might finally be time for America's leadership class to start looking inward and asking what's going on. People don't throw out all their normal political leaders for a TV-host billionaire and a socialist who ...Read more

Where things stand after the Las Vegas debate

From the Right / Neil Patel /

After watching the Las Vegas Democratic debate, it's becoming less and less clear how the Democrats plan to defeat, or even challenge, President Donald Trump this fall. As a conservative Republican watching just for kicks, the debate was amazing -- tons of drama and entertainment value. But if you are a Democrat committed to getting rid of Trump...Read more

Looking ahead to Trump's second term

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Sen. Bernie Sanders is winning. If the election of Donald Trump wasn't enough of a wake-up call that Americans want radical change, the Bernie surge should finally get America's leaders to start thinking more clearly about what's happening in our country.

For a lot of people, it's been easier to stick their heads in the sand and pretend we are ...Read more

Everything is coming up Trump

From the Right / Neil Patel /

As Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore up President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech page by page, she put the finishing touches on one of the greatest political rehab jobs of all time. The Democrats have managed to turn Trump into a thoroughly sympathetic figure.

From the start, Trump has not been treated like a normal president by people on ...Read more

Plenty of blame to go around regarding our coming debt crisis

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Ten to 20 years from now, we will not be talking about impeachment, and believe it or not, we won't still be talking about Donald Trump either. We will be talking about our debt crisis. For all the good that came from this era, the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations will all be remembered as the ones that caused the crisis that will hammer ...Read more

Trump is a detailed policy innovator

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Not many people think of President Donald Trump as a detailed policy innovator. His detractors still view him as a buffoon unequipped to run the country. His supporters view him as a guy who has succeeded on great instincts. Not many view the president as a guy who gets under the hood to study the details of policy options. But with historically...Read more

Everyone Is Wrong on Skilled Immigration

From the Right / Neil Patel /

The immigration debate in our country has been dominated by huge corporations who want more (and cheaper) workers and by liberal advocacy organizations who want America to take in as many people from developing nations as possible, partly for humanitarian reasons and partly to drive up the voter rolls for the Democrats. These dueling interests...Read more

Trump's handling of Iran deserves praise

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Is it possible President Donald Trump may have perfectly played the Iran conflict? He's been criticized for different and various reasons by people on the left and on the right. There's been a real concern that the president could get us into a war with Iran. It's early but it seems like Trump has effectively fired a warning shot at Iran to ramp...Read more

Texas's concealed-carry law probably prevented mass murder, this time

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Neil Patel and Tucker Carlson are off this week. The following column is by David Harsanyi.

The same weekend that Orthodox Jews in Monsey, New York, were fighting off another knife-wielding anti-Semite thug with chairs and coffee tables -- they were fortunate that the perpetrator hadn't brought a firearm, like the killer who targeted a ...Read more

The real reason the left hates Trump is because he tells the truth

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Throughout the impeachment drama, the press repeatedly told you that the president was a liar. They said his lies are why he had to be impeached. Donald Trump is a salesman; he is a talker, a booster, a compulsive self-promoter. If Trump hadn't gotten rich in real estate, then he could've made a fortune selling cars. Most people know this.

So ...Read more

Understanding Democrats' foolish march toward another electoral defeat

From the Right / Neil Patel /

After months of false starts and threats and endless posturing, Donald Trump has joined Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton as the third American president impeached by the House of Representatives. Democrats started promising to do this before the president was elected. Still, it feels kind of weird, surprising, surreal even, that it actually ...Read more

Liberal media has some apologizing to do after the IG report

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Thanks to the Department of Justice Inspector General's report, we now know for certain what has been, for those paying attention, fairly obvious. The Steele dossier played a central role in the genesis of the Russia hoax and was used to justify extensive spying on former naval officer and Annapolis graduate Carter Page.

The top two leaders of ...Read more

Democrats latest in the impeachment charade is to launch a parade of shallow, non-witnesses

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Another chapter in the house impeachment melodrama unfolded this week. The proceedings shifted from Adam Schiff's Intel Committee to the Judiciary Committee, which is run by another Democratic member of Congress, Jerry Nadler of New York. Last month Schiff's failed approach was to bring down the president by bringing in a whole cavalcade of ...Read more
