A Look at the Documentary 'Corporate Welfare: Where's the Outrage?'

September 17th, 2021 4:06 PM

Today's politicians want to spend more on EVERYTHING: Amtrak subsidies, sports stadium subsidies, green energy subsidies, even fossil fuel subsidies ... President Joe Biden says the handouts will "put more money in your pocket." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims they will "protect the planet for the children." They might. But a disproportionate amount of the money will end up in the hands of…

Toxic Victimhood From BLM Grifters

September 9th, 2021 6:54 PM

Are you a racist? All white people are, says "White Fragility" author Robin DiAngelo. Race explains everything, says bestselling "How to Be an Antiracist" author Ibram X. Kendi. "Every policy is either racist or anti-racist." Kendi's and DiAngelo's books are now recommended reading at schools, corporations and in the military. Both authors command high speaking fees. Isn't…

Lessons from Georgia, the Country

August 27th, 2021 1:14 PM

Georgia (the ex-Soviet Republic, not the U.S. state) is now a remarkable success story. Its economy is growing at 5% per year, and the country ranks ahead of the United States in economic freedom. Yet, 20 years ago, Georgia was even more miserably poor than the rest of the former Soviet Union. So, what can America and the rest of the world learn from Georgia's progress? A lot, says my…

Coronavirus Censorship: Paul vs. Fauci

August 20th, 2021 11:08 AM

YouTube just froze Sen. Rand Paul's YouTube channel. That's just wrong. Small-minded. Counterproductive. YouTube says Paul violated their COVID-19 misinformation policy when he told an interviewer, “Most of the masks you get over the counter don't work ... virus particles are too small and go right through.” Paul didn't make that up. Properly worn N95 masks are effective, but two peer-…

Libertad! America Must Stand With the Cuban People, Reject Communism

August 11th, 2021 8:06 PM

Are they still protesting in Cuba? I don't know. The Cuban government has shut off the Cuban people's internet. The big demonstrations began four weeks ago, sparked, curiously, by a rap song. The key lyric is: “Freedom! No more Doctrine!” “Doctrine” refers to the “constant cycle of propaganda” from the government, explains Cuban emigre Alian Collazo in my newest video.

Trans Women vs Women in Sports

August 5th, 2021 3:51 PM

“Why do I have to compete against a male body?” complains mountain bike racer Leia Schneeberger in my new video. She and others are upset because today, some transgender women, people born male but who identify as female, are winning sports competitions. Schneeberger regularly won bicycle races, until a former men's cyclist transitioned, competed as a woman, and rode away from her. “How did…

Woke Language Is Only Getting Worse. Have You Felt It?

July 22nd, 2021 4:03 PM

Have you noticed how our language is changing? At a congressional hearing on “Birthing While Black,” nearly every politician used the words “birthing people” instead of “women” or “mothers.” Asked why, Shalanda Young, President Joe Biden's budget director, said, “Our language needs to be more inclusive.” Activists have also changed “equality” to “equity” and “affirmative action” to “diversity…

Don’t Ask Permission! Break Rules

July 16th, 2021 10:28 AM

America has so many regulations that today, often the only way to do something new, to create something great, to prosper is to ignore rules. Minutes before SpaceX launched a rocket, the government told the company that the launch would violate its license. SpaceX launched anyway. CEO Elon Musk says that the Federal Aviation Administration has “a broken regulatory structure” and that…

Big Business Loves Big Government

July 8th, 2021 6:41 PM

Politicians say they pass laws to “protect Americans from big business.” People like hearing that. Many don't like big business. Unfortunately, most people don't realize that those laws often help big business while hurting consumers. “Big business and big government are not enemies like a lot of people think they are,” says American Enterprise Institute fellow Tim Carney in my new video. “…

The Right to Bear Arms

June 30th, 2021 8:04 PM

Would carrying a gun make you feel safer? Robert Nash and Brandon Koch thought so. But the state of New York denied them gun permits, saying they hadn't demonstrated a “special need.” Why did they have to prove such a “need”? The Supreme Court ruled more than 10 years ago that all Americans have a right to keep and bear arms, no matter where they live.

The Climate Censors Tighten Their Grip

June 10th, 2021 6:18 PM

Whom does Facebook trust to censor? A Ph.D. graduate from France. Really. The Frenchman, Emmanuel Vincent, started a group he calls “Climate Feedback.” It does “a new kind of fact-checking.” It sure is new. And wrong. I released a video in which some climate scientists argue that climate change is not a “crisis.” They believe people can adjust to changing temperatures. Twenty-five million…

In a Battle With Roads, Roundabouts Are Better

June 3rd, 2021 2:19 PM

I hate waiting at traffic lights. There's a solution: traffic circles, or roundabouts. Traffic circles terrified me when I first confronted them in Europe. A movie, National Lampoon’s European Vacation, captured my experience when it portrayed Chevy Chase driving in London, unable to exit a rotary all day. Besides being hard to navigate, I also assumed roundabouts cause problems, but a…

Corruption in New Jersey? NO WAY!

May 27th, 2021 5:59 PM

Home prices keep climbing. It's another reason to let people build housing. But corrupt politicians sometimes prevent that. The little town of Edgewater, New Jersey, sits right across the Hudson River from Manhattan. A developer, Maxal Group, bought a dumpsite there and proposed building more than a thousand new waterfront apartments. The town said no. Why? The development would generate $12…

Labor Shortage Caused by Government

May 19th, 2021 7:55 PM

America has a record 8.1 million job openings. The media call it a “labor shortage.” But it's not a labor shortage; it's an incentive shortage. “No one wants to work,” says a sign on a restaurant drive-thru speaker in Albuquerque, New Mexico. “Please be patient with the staff that did show up.” I never wanted to work. I got a job because I had to support myself. That was good for me. It forced…
