The light at the end of the COVID tunnel is finally within sight—provided you live in a red state. Blue states remain under the thumbs of petty tyrants. Meanwhile, cancel culture claims new victims, from Mr. Potato Head to Dr. Seuss. Plus: Sacramento’s school district is pushing for the formation of “racial affinity groups”—a new caste system looms.

While free speech finds a new venue in the popular app Clubhouse, Democrats in Congress are openly asking TV carriers why Republican and conservative-leaning channels like OANN and Fox News are allowed on the air. It’s a new front in the war between digital renegades and regime flunkies: a profusion of energy on one side, a chilling desire to squash dissidents on the other. Can Clubhouse and other apps like it survive a coming onslaught by petty tyrants?

Rush Limbaugh passed away yesterday—his work touched tens of millions of people, our editors included. Then there’s Governor Cuomo, who is embroiled in a scandal after covering up COVID nursing home deaths from the public. Plus: the Claremont Institute has launched a new DC-based branch: The Center for the American Way of Life. Arthur Milikh, the Center’s executive director, joins to talk about reclaiming a more robust kind of conservatism.

The second impeachment trial of former President Trump lumbers on, but does anybody even care about this undisguised show trial? Melinda Gates and elites like her would appreciate it if you would just think that everything fits neatly into a Marxist box. That notion isn’t just wrong—it’s degrading—especially when applied to women. Plus: Mitt Romney has proposed cutting checks to families that have children. Our editors analyze.

The Left is laying the rhetorical groundwork for a domestic war on Trump supporters, as red state governments start planning how to respond. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced plans to push back on the Big Tech Cartel—will they work? Our editors, joined for the first time by new managing editor Seth Barron, discuss the desperation and discreditation of the mainstream media.

Ryan Williams, president of the Claremont Institute, is joined by Charles Kesler and Matthew Spalding. The group elucidates the 1776 Commission’s report, the liberal response to it, populism in America, and the potential for national renewal.

Those crazy kids actually did it: A group of redditors under the banner of r/WallStreetBets are singlehandedly taking the populist fight to Wall Street billionaires—and they’re winning. For now. Of course, elites of every stripe are spitting mad. Our editors discuss this strange and hilarious new movement. Plus: what is in Trump’s political future—and by extension, the GOP’s?

It’s official: Biden is the 46th president. Beneath the inane boilerplate of the new president’s speech (accompanied by a tearful chorus of celebration from the usual journos) lurked a much more sinister kind of rhetoric. Our editors give a close reading of the address. Plus: Biden scrapped the 1776 Commission. What’s he up to?

In the wake of January 6, a multitude of personalities—from both sides of the aisle—came out of the woodwork to call for banning Trump and many of his supporters from the largest social media platforms. The editors discuss this dropping of the banhammer, focusing especially on David French’s “analysis” of the situation. Plus: Trump has been impeached for a second time.

Trump’s supporters took their dissatisfaction with the 2020 election all the way into the Capitol yesterday, and then things got serious. Four people are dead, including one woman who was shot by Capitol Police. Our editors discuss. Plus: what happens when machines threaten to outdo humans?

With the counting of the Electoral College vote drawing near, Senator Josh Hawley has vowed to object to certification on January 6. Who will take up the GOP mantle in 2024? Plus: DC, the Imperial City, has a corrupting influence on its inhabitants—including think tanks.

2020 is drawing to a close, and with vaccines rolling out across the nation, so too is the COVID pandemic. Hypothetically. But this won’t stop the ruling classes from coming up with other cockamamie reasons to shut you down and take your money. Don’t despair, though: the editors are here to lift your spirits on this Christmas special with discussion of their favorite carols and more.

The electoral college has cast their ballots. But there are lingering issues percolating through public discourse, from corruption to separation. Our editors have measured commentary to tell you what you should be watching and what is white noise. Plus: a frank discussion about class, religion, and politics in America.

In this special edition of The American Mind Podcast, Ryan Williams, President of The Claremont Institute, interviews Brian Kennedy, President of The American Strategy Group. Kennedy talks about his experiences on the ground in contested states during the 2020 election cycle and carefully breaks down the current state of play, pinpointing what issues he thinks are most likely to bear fruit for conservatives.

In this special installment of The American Mind Podcast, Ryan Williams, President of The Claremont Institute, interviews Dr. John Eastman. The two discuss Dr. Eastman’s experience navigating legal battles in the wake of the 2020 election.

California’s government at both the state and local level would like to wish you a big bah humbug. Another round of lockdowns is hitting small business especially hard, and Spencer has a report from the ground. Plus: YouTube is censoring people who talk about voter fraud in ways they don’t like.

The New Yorker’s latest cover art, which depicts “love life” in the time of COVID lockdowns, reveals far more about our deep cultural sickness than perhaps it intends to. But meanwhile, pockets of resistance from both parties form against coronatarian tyranny and the excesses of our arrogant ruling class. Our editors look forward with hope to build a new, working-class coalition that will stand together against the woke madness that is sure to lie ahead of us.

Thanksgiving may be around the corner, but Trump’s presidency isn’t over yet. Assuming that Biden wins the electoral college—not a foregone conclusion, mind you—what will Trump be able to do in his last days in office? Will he sputter out, or will this be the most incendiary lame duck presidency we’ve ever seen? Plus: our editors discuss their Thanksgiving plans.

Election day has come and gone, so legacy media outlets are right back to covering coronavirus. Clinging to the last shreds of their viewership, they are doing their best to make the virus as scary as possible—a goal which dovetails perfectly with the policies of blue state leaders like Gavin Newsom and Meg Whitmer. As if that wasn’t bad enough, global elites are trying to initiate a “Great Reset” that will deprive you of everything you own. Seriously. They’re proud of that. Our editors unleash hellfire on the stupidity.

In a staggering display of dangerous hysterics, leftists have taken to floating the idea of post-Trump “truth and reconciliation commissions.” This of course amounts to the flogging of sinners (read: conservatives) against wokeism. At AOC’s call, one group actually started making a list of people who worked for him in an attempt to cancel those public servants. Our editors, sure to be first on the list, discuss the meaning of this disastrous development.
