The failure of the home test solution

Susan Estrich Remember when the president’s answer to the new variant was going to be 500 million home tests so we wouldn’t have a repeat of those long lines for tests that were a fixture of the early days of the pandemic? Drive down Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles and about the only foot traffic…

GOP pushes back on Democratic ‘Big Lie’

Byron York President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris traveled to Georgia Tuesday to push their party’s bill to federalize U.S. election procedures on terms favorable to Democrats. “We are going right to the belly of the beast, or ground zero, for voter suppression, voter subversion and obstruction,” senior White House official Cedric Richmond…

Not getting vaccinated can be child abuse

Fromma Harrop She was only in her 30s when COVID-19 put her in the hospital for three nights. The woman, whom I know well, eventually tested negative, but then “long COVID” took over. Formerly healthy, she now suffers a disabling inflammatory disease. She may need a year to completely recover — and some don’t recover.…

The left supports the constitution — except when it doesn’t

Rich Lowry The Constitution must be defended — except when it must be jettisoned. We’ve heard much upon the anniversary of January 6 about how Donald Trump wanted to distort the Constitution to get Vice President Mike Pence to try to throw the election to him a year ago. And this was, indeed, a cockamamie,…

The MeToo defense was beneath her dignity

Fromma Harrop She entered the headlines as the super-confident entrepreneur who founded a wildly successful tech company at 19. She recruited generals and secretaries of state to her board.

When does Trump get his apology?

Rich Lowry The fullness of time, and now the omicron wave, have made it obvious how preposterous the chief lines of criticism against Donald Trump were during the pandemic. It has been said, over and over, that Trump almost single-handedly killed Americans. Chris Hayes a couple of months ago called for a truth-and-reconciliation-commission-type inquiry into…

Be Well

Susan Estrich  For too much of my life, New Year’s resolutions were all about diets. One year, after I had half-tamed the monster, I managed to monetize my obsession by writing and, most importantly, personally marketing a diet book. It was a guarantee, of sorts: unlike Oprah, I figured I’d be too embarrassed to show…

As presidential nominee, Kamala Harris is not the one

Fromma Harrop The year 2022 should be too early to get into heated speculation about the Democrats’ 2024 candidate for president. But since it’s already begun, now would be a good time to resist arguments for making Vice President Kamala Harris the nominee. First off, the current president, Joe Biden, has not ruled out seeking…

The Biden Economy Happens to Be Glorious

From Harrop If Joe Biden takes office, there’ll be a “depression the likes of which you’ve never seen,” Donald Trump warned a month before he lost the 2020 presidential election. It didn’t happen. You know that, right? Also, your 401(k) surely did not “go to hell,” as the previous guy predicted. On the contrary, stocks…
