Celebrities and politicians urging people to visit Georgia and falsely claim residency for the sole purpose of voting in two critical U.S. Senate runoff elections Jan. 5 are advocating criminal actions and should be ashamed of themselves. This call for voter fraud should be rejected. The Georgia runoff elections are extraordinarily important because they will determine which political party […]

Political unity is an ugly, authoritarian idea. No free place has domestic political unity, nor should it aspire to it. What “unity” really means, of course, is capitulation. America is once again being subjected to the inane brand of pseudo-patriotic sloganeering we saw during President Barack Obama’s tenure. Now, as then, the media will pretend that […]
On Saturday evening, presidential front-runner Joe Biden—who doesn’t actually become president-elect until vote counts are certified—gave a preliminary victory address. In that address, he spoke of his mandate to govern: a mandate, he said, that extended to marshalling the “forces of decency … fairness … science … hope.” Which is a pretty vague mandate, as it turns out. […]
Joe Biden is calling for unity following the 2020 presidential election, but it’s clear that many of the former vice president’s supporters view postelection unity as something to create by force and intimidation. That sort of unity is enforced by ruthless institutional pressure and cancel culture. It’s a tactic that the left already uses […]
Conservatives won House races on Election Day and many of these new members are expected to bring fresh perspectives to Capitol Hill as they represent millennials, minorities, the disabled, and immigrants, among others. Here are five of the House’s incoming freshman Republicans. 1. Kat Cammack, 3rd District of Florida Kat Cammack defeated Democrat Adam Christensen to win […]
Even though former vice President Joe Biden has claimed victory in the presidential election, the Trump campaign has filed lawsuits contesting the results with current litigation in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Michigan, Georgia, and Arizona. In Pennsylvania alone, there are at least 21,000 dead people on the voter rolls. Is there a possibility that some of these ballots […]
Many Americans were prepared to wake up Wednesday without having a winner of the presidential election decided yet. Election officials had to count an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots due to COVID-19, so some delay was to be expected. What many Americans were not prepared for was the confusion, uncertainty, and distrust that the country […]
On Tuesday night, the American people spoke. They spoke with millions upon millions of voices to produce the greatest presidential election voter turnout in over a century. And they sent a variety of messages, most of them quite positive. Voters rejected the prevailing narratives of a media determined to make the election a pure referendum […]
Tom Ranieri is a lawyer who volunteered as a representative of President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, working at an Election Day hotline. He was there from Oct. 30 to Nov. 3 and joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share what he observed. “The Daily Signal Podcast” is available on Ricochet, Apple Podcasts, Pippa, Google Play, […]
A republic is not just a nation of laws. It also relies on its good-faith watchdogs, such as honest pollsters, the media, and bipartisan institutions. We still didn’t know the final result of Tuesday’s presidential election as of Wednesday night. But there are lots of reasons to worry that something in America has gone terribly […]
As might be expected during the undecided presidential contest between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, pundits and typical voters alike are voicing more concerns about voter fraud and unfair election practices. Already numerous internet rumors have been proven wrong or lack evidence. That doesn’t mean every assertion will prove to be without merit, however. Conversely, […]
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has long denied that he has any knowledge of, or involvement in, the questionable business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden, or his brother, James Biden. But a deluge of revelations from a laptop reported to have belonged to Hunter Biden and from the on-the-record statements of Hunter Biden and James Biden’s […]
Many young Americans seem to have a growing disdain for our country. According to a Gallup poll, pride in our nation has declined, especially among young adults. Young adults are taking to the streets and not merely protesting but wreaking havoc, rioting and looting, tearing down statues, and shutting down anyone who doesn’t share their perspective. […]
Equality is out and “equity” is in. The San Diego Unified School District has approved a change to their grading system that coincides with broader ideas of restorative justice and “anti-racism.” They will do this by no longer letting late assignments and bad behavior in the classroom affect grades. Students also won’t be penalized for […]
It took rioters only two nights to move through Kenosha, Wisconsin, burning and looting businesses as they went, until parts of the city looked more like a war zone than an American town. “It’s emotional for us,” Raquel Santiago told The Daily Signal during an Oct. 7 interview, adding: “I don’t even have words […]
