Media ignores Biden's spying on the Trump team

From the Right / Neil Patel /

We have now had time to digest the news of senior Obama political appointees -- including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden -- spying on President Donald Trump's 2017 incoming national security advisor, Michael Flynn. It has been weeks since the news broke, but we have few answers as to what actually happened -- and very few questions ...Read more

Who's to blame: Trump or China?

From the Right / Neil Patel /

The big coronavirus debate is between blaming President Donald Trump and blaming China for the pandemic. The usual suspects are lined up on each side. To anybody who pauses to think for a second, it's clear the two options are not mutually exclusive. But that's still how the debate is playing out in the press.

The list of China's misdeeds when ...Read more

We must get to the bottom of the Obama White House's alleged domestic spying

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Michael Flynn did not seem to be the best choice President-elect Donald Trump could have made for his first national security advisor. My own publication, The Daily Caller, broke the story of Flynn writing an op-ed praising Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan just before Trump's election. The op-ed was a clear break from Flynn's past comments...Read more

Protect Americans with American supplies

From the Right / Neil Patel /

As our fellow Americans lose jobs and lives due to this pandemic, it's helpful to pause and think about whether any positives can come out of this tragedy. With challenges this big, there are always important lessons.

First, we are learning a lot about our top leaders. We live in a politically fractured time. By the time we have a vaccine or ...Read more

The legacy media's Biden cover-up is failing

From the Right / Neil Patel /

We live in a time when many people are so partisan that their views are easy to predict based solely on their political persuasion. If you're a hardcore Republican, you're pretty sure hydroxychloroquine is a solid treatment for COVID-19, and if you're a big-time Democrat, you know hydroxychloroquine is ineffective and even dangerous. Our system ...Read more

Tally of the good and the bad guys won't be finalized until the virus clear

From the Right / Neil Patel /

John Jacob Astor, the richest man on board the Titanic, famously gave up a seat in the final lifeboat when he saw two young children still on the ship's deck. "Women and children first" was the order from the ship's captain, and the final numbers show just how much the men on board -- even the rich and powerful -- adhered to that call. Women on ...Read more

Either we heal as a country or we are going to crumble

From the Right / Neil Patel /

For the business community and those at the very top of America's economic ladder, China has been a godsend. They've made and saved billions and billions of dollars by outsourcing American manufacturing to China and offering goods and services to China's booming consumer market. For many top American companies, growth in China has been seen as ...Read more

We need someone to clearly explain the plan

From the Right / Neil Patel /

The amazing thing about COVID-19 is how much we still don't know. Even the experts don't quite understand the nature of the virus or how we should respond. Due to their evolving understanding, we have seen quite a bit of change in the guidance they give to the public -- which is fine, as long as they remain transparent. More than anything else, ...Read more

Now is not the time for politics

From the Right / Neil Patel /

Things are getting real. We are at over 47,000 deaths worldwide and over 5,000 deaths in the U.S. alone. Our top experts are modeling between 100,000 and 240,000 American deaths by the end of this crisis. Those are massive numbers. We lost nearly 3,000 on 9/11; we suffered 7,000 (so far) U.S. military deaths in the "war on terror" and 58,000 ...Read more

Time to step up: The coronavirus opportunity for our country

From the Right / Neil Patel /

This week's dumb national debate has been about when to reopen our economy. To date, our strategy on the coronavirus has been to shut down pretty much everything and stay home. President Donald Trump said he hopes to reopen our economy by Easter. Those who oppose anything the president says are therefore adamantly opposed to reopening our ...Read more

The trillion-dollar bailout may change our politics forever

From the Right / Neil Patel /

As members of Congress debate the terms of the trillion-dollar-plus coronavirus relief package for businesses and individuals, they would do well to remember our recent history.

Most people in professional Washington hate the populist era we are going through. The populist period exists because Americans already feel like their elected ...Read more

America will win the coronavirus war

From the Right / Neil Patel /

America has faced great challenges in the past, and we have always gotten through them stronger than we were before. From the Civil War to the Great Depression to World War II, we have been through some horrific stuff. In the Civil War alone, we lost 750,000 people, or 2% of our population at the time. That would be 7 million deaths at our ...Read more

Can America successfully navigate the coronavirus crisis?

From the Right / Neil Patel /

One of the first rules of weathering a crisis is to remain calm. Freaking out never helps. It's not yet clear how big of a crisis the new coronavirus will be, but panicking over even the most minor matters has become an American specialty these last few years. In our politics, we have jumped from faux crisis to faux crisis with such speed that ...Read more

The president's coronavirus position is dangerous

From the Right / Neil Patel /

It's rare that President Donald Trump ever seems to misread a communications matter. From the earliest 2016 debates, it became clear that he is a lot better at communicating with the American people than your standard-issue Republican politician. He's also a master at the media game. The liberal press would never admit it, but he's the best ...Read more
