Tulsi Gabbard’s last stand | Spectator USA

Tulsi Gabbard’s last stand | Spectator USA

Tulsi Gabbard will retire from Congress at the end of the year. The Hawaii representative is going out with a bang, introducing several bills that show why she is so despised by her establishment Democratic counterparts — and why she could potentially become a very powerful broker in the American political realignment.Last week, Gabbard introduced the Protect Women’s Sports Act, legislation that would prevent biological men from competing in women’s sports. Gabbard understands that keeping men and women’s sports separate is a question of basic fairness for female athletes — Chelsea...

The coming cable news crisis | Spectator USA

The coming cable news crisis | Spectator USA

TV pundits and reporters may personally be cheering that President Trump appears likely to be booted from office come January, but the transfer of power is bad news for the networks that employ them. CNN and MSNBC saw record-high ratings over the past four years thanks to President Trump, who supplied just the right kind of drama for their wine-sipping audiences.What will the networks talk about if they’re not melting down over Trump tossing a roll of paper towels during a hurricane relief effort or serving a personally purchased fast-food spread to championship-winning college athletes?...

The baffling Georgia boycott effort | Spectator USA

The baffling Georgia boycott effort | Spectator USA

Right-wingers on social media are calling for Trump supporters to refuse to vote for Republican candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in the Georgia Senate race. Instead, tweets with the tag are encouraging voters angry at alleged fraud in the presidential race to write in President Trump for both seats.The instruction is a bit confusing since Georgia law does not even accept write-in candidates for a runoff election. A protest vote in this case might make someone feel better, but it won’t be counted and we’ll have no idea how many people actually opted to ‘boycott’ the election.There...

The debate commission’s new rules were a gift to Trump | Spectator USA

The debate commission’s new rules were a gift to Trump | Spectator USA

Donald Trump had arguably his best debate performance ever on Thursday night, for which he owes a big ‘thank you’ to the Commission on Presidential Debates.The CPD instituted a new rule for the debate in Nashville: each candidate would have their microphone turned off while their opponent was giving their initial two-minute response. This was intended to prevent the consistent interruptions that occurred during the first debate, which were primarily blamed on Trump but were started by former vice president Joe Biden. I suspect that the CPD, which has proved itself to be , thought this would...

‘The Melania Tapes’ reveal she’s even cooler than we thought | Spectator USA

‘The Melania Tapes’ reveal she’s even cooler than we thought | Spectator USA

Just a couple of hours before President Trump announced that he and his wife, first lady Melania, had tested positive for coronavirus, the world was exposed to the so-called ‘Melania Tapes’. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former friend of the first lady, released to multiple recordings she took of her private conversations with Melania. Leftists who already despise the first lady raged about how she supposedly ‘hates’ Christmas and doesn’t care about migrant children. However, the tapes actually revealed a deeply sympathetic and relatable figure belied by Melania’s somewhat aloof and...

All pageantry, no progress: Wednesday night at the DNC | Spectator USA

All pageantry, no progress: Wednesday night at the DNC | Spectator USA

‘I’m in love — but not with anybody here. I’ll see you in a couple years,’ Billie Eilish crooned during the third night of the Democratic National Convention. The teen vocalist was singing her new single ‘’, but the lyrics could just as easily be a rallying cry for the young progressives kicked in the teeth yet again by the Democratic establishment.Democrats love to boast about their youth support and the party’s future generation of leaders, but their convention displays a political party that is fully enamored with the past. It’s not wrong for them to make the calculation that young...

Will Trump win Minnesota? | Spectator USA

Will Trump win Minnesota? | Spectator USA

Sen. Amy Klobuchar may have to eat her words after declaring last year that Donald Trump will ‘never win Minnesota’. A new Emerson College released Tuesday shows the President trailing Joe Biden by just three percentage points.The poll has Trump within the margin of error, meaning the state is effectively a toss-up at this point. The President is planning to visit the state on Monday in an attempt to provide counter-programming for the Democratic National Convention, which was meant to take place across the state line in Wisconsin, and to capitalize on his recent gains in the polls.The...

Who deserves a funeral? | Spectator USA

Who deserves a funeral? | Spectator USA

No one would argue that Rep. John Lewis doesn’t deserve a proper memorial. He was a civil rights icon and a long-serving member of Congress who was beloved by his colleagues. In the middle of a pandemic, however, how do we decide who gets the pomp and circumstance of a traditional burial and who has to watch their loved one go six feet under via Zoom call?Funerals are important: they acknowledge the sanctity of life and allow friends and family to come together to grieve their loss. This reality doesn’t change based on how famous or revered an individual was to the general public: it...
