He's Right! It's Unfair! All Kids Should Have That Choice!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Government-run schools keep failing. It shouldn't surprise us. Monopolies rarely serve customers well. People call them "public schools," but "government-run" is more accurate. After all, charter schools are available to the public. Privately run supermarkets are open to the public for more hours than "public" schools are.

Why Did the Libertarians Boo Trump? Because He's an Authoritatian?

From the Right / John Stossel /

Donald Trump recently spoke at the Libertarian National Convention. Good for him. It's encouraging that he reached out to those of us who often disagree with him. We libertarians put individual liberty first. We think government that governs least governs best. That's a reason we fear today's Democrats. In their eagerness to tax and regulate, ...Read more

Interfering With Market Prices Always Creates Nasty Unintended Consequences

From the Right / John Stossel /

California now leads the nation in imposing dumb wage laws. The state just raised the hourly minimum wage for fast food workers to $20. Gov. Gavin Newsom said, "We saw the inequities. ... we had a responsibility to do more." Unions pushed for the higher minimum, and in Democrat-run states, unions usually get what they want.

CNN announced, "Half...Read more

Ignore the Scaremongering Mainstream Media!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Have you heard about the "bee-pocalypse?" Honeybees are dying! It's another environmental crisis we're supposed to worry about. The media call it "bee-pocalypse" and "bee-mageddon!" A YouTube video with 15 million views says bee-mageddon "could lead to millions of people starving!" Even Fox News shrieked, "Do you like to eat? The disappearance ...Read more

Censorship is a Global Pandemic!

From the Right / John Stossel /

"Palestine will be free!" chant the protesters. "From the river to the sea. Some says that's a call for genocide -- another holocaust -- elimination of Israel and all Jews. So, should the chant be illegal? The House of Representatives just voted to make it illegal at universities. Both Republicans and Democrats voted for the bill. Canadian ...Read more

'Drain the Swamp'

From the Right / John Stossel /

Presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to "drain the swamp!"

The "swamp" is the permanent Washington bureaucracy working to perpetuate itself.

In 2020, then-President Trump said he was succeeding: "We're draining the Washington swamp!"

But it's not true.

"He made government bigger," Economist Ed Stringham says in my new video....Read more

I Don't Believe Anyone Knows How to Make Government Work!

From the Right / John Stossel /

President Joe Biden says, "I know how to make government work!" You'd think he'd know. He's worked in government for 51 years. But the truth is, no one can make government work. Biden hasn't. Look at the chaos at the border, our military's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, the rising cost of living, our unsustainable record-high debt. ...Read more

Capitalism Versus Racism? That's Just Silly!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Capitalism and racism go together? I hear it all the time. "Racism is intricately linked to capitalism," says famous Marxist Angela Davis. "It's a mistake to assume that we can combat racism by leaving capitalism in place."

"Anti-racist" activist Ibram X. Kendi says, "In order to truly be anti-racist, you also have to truly be anti-capitalist."...Read more

Your Car's Kill Switch is Acknowledged Under Clause 24220!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Soon the government might shut down your car. President Joe Biden's new infrastructure gives bureaucrats that power. You probably didn't hear about that because when media covered it, few mentioned the requirement that by 2026, every American car must "monitor" the driver, determine if he is impaired and, if so, "limit vehicle operation." Rep. ...Read more

A Ban on Freelance Work

From the Right / John Stossel /

The Labor Department just imposed 300 pages of new regulations to reclassify many individual contractors as payroll employees. CNBC claims this could help freelancers "recover lost wages." That's just nonsense.

The new rules will make it harder for some freelancers to support a family. My new video shows how it will also make it harder ...Read more

The More We Trade the Better Off We Are!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Leaders of both parties agree: We must reduce globalization. "China is ripping us on trade," says Donald Trump. Our trade deficit is "an immorality," says Nancy Pelosi. But it's not. In my new video, Scott Lincicome of the Cato Institute points out, "Selling us stuff is hardly ripping us off." He's right. Our video debunks common misunderstandin...Read more

Pro-Tenant Laws Championed by Marxist New School Professor Miguel Robles-Duran Now Protect Squatters!

From the Right / John Stossel /

What if you come home and find strangers living in your house? I assumed you order the squatters out, and if they resist, call the police, and they will kick them out. Wrong. Pro-tenant laws passed by anti-capitalist politicians now protect squatters. If a squatter just lies about having a lease, the police won't intervene. "It's a civil matter,...Read more

American Politicians and Mainstream Media Must Apologize for Their Arrogance, for Destroying Jobs, Restricting Our Freedom and Needlessly Pushing Us Around!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Four years ago, government officials told us, "Stay home!" We have "15 days to slow the spread." Days turned into months and then years, while officials chipped away at our freedoms. I have long been wary of politicians, but even I was surprised at how authoritarian many were eager to be. Some demanded police to go after people surfing. They ...Read more
