Why Are American Leaders Not Protecting Our Interests When It Comes to China and COVID-19?

From the Right / Neil Patel /

What happens when a country loses interest in protecting itself? That's what we are living through in America today. COVID-19 has killed 600,000 Americans. Yet the U.S. government and top American leaders have generally been passive, or even uninterested, in learning how it all started.

How can that be? It's almost unimaginable that every ...Read more

It's Time to Consider Mandatory National Service To Help Heal Our Broken Country

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Our country is broken -- it's coming apart at the seams -- and it is not going to fix itself. Repairing it will take effort from all of us. It may require consideration of some big national changes. Too many of us are just sitting back and watching America's decline. It's time to consider any idea that holds some promise for national renewal, ...Read more

Conservatives Should Start Paying Attention to Language

From the Right / Neil Patel /

In certain ways, it must be fun to be a left-winger. Pushing for any policy that seems socially just without the constraint of how it actually works out for people (i.e., ignoring the horrors left behind in socialism's wake throughout history) makes things a whole lot easier. Sounds fun, too. Just going with your heart and hoping for the best ...Read more

Masks in Cars: What's Behind America's COVID-19 Insanity

From the Right / Neil Patel /

If you wanted to teach a class on how to cause confusion and distrust, you would follow the U.S. government's coronavirus playbook. A lot has been written about the historically low levels of trust Americans have in their leaders and institutions. There's been less analysis on what happens when a government has no faith in its own citizens. We ...Read more

Regular Americans Are Not Going to Fall for the Left's Cynical Politics of Racial Division

From the Right / Neil Patel /

The left and the right have been battling it out for months over who can freak out average Americans the most. Regular Americans were definitely not impressed by the photos of team QAnon in capes and horn helmets posing in the U.S. Capitol. Normal Americans may be mad at Washington, but they love our country and don't want to see national ...Read more

What Happened to Biden's Unity Agenda?

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Less than three months ago, President Joe Biden stood in front of the U.S. Capitol in the wake of the Jan. 6 riots and delivered his inaugural address. He called for unity, and Americans who see a politically fractured country welcomed it. He could have then put together an agenda that would have accomplished many of his goals while also helping...Read more

Biden Seems to Have Thrown Out His Call for National Unity; Here's How He Could Get It Back

From the Right / Neil Patel /

President Joe Biden began his presidency with an inaugural call for national unity. Since that time, his greatest legislative achievement is a COVID-19 relief package that passed without a single Republican vote. Given the disagreement and disarray among Republicans today, it's amazing Biden could come up with something Republicans would agree ...Read more

Is Populism Going to Fritter Away Over Time as George W. Bush Predicts?

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Last week, former President George W. Bush said he's not worried about the current moment in American politics because "these populist movements begin to fritter over time." I don't know Bush well personally, but I served in his administration for eight years. As a senior staffer to Vice President Dick Cheney, I was in numerous meetings with ...Read more
