Here are a few cherry-picked examples on how private industry runs certain things better than government

From the Right / John Stossel /

When COVID-19 hit, I quarantined in Eastern Massachusetts.

Biking around the woods, I noticed something strange.

There are two campgrounds near my house. One is full. Lots of people pitch tents or park trailers at a place called Maurice's.

A short bike ride away is a much bigger campground that's almost entirely empty.

Why? It's the topic of...Read more

I am mad at Facebook for throttling my video

From the Right / John Stossel /

Recently, I released a video that called California's fires "government fueled."

A few days later, Facebook inserted a warning on my video: "Missing Context. Independent fact-checkers say this information could mislead."

Some of my viewers now feel betrayed. One wrote: "Shameful, John... what happened to you!!? Your reporting was always fair.....Read more

Mainstream media is biased towards liberals

From the Right / John Stossel /

"A pioneer devoted to equality."

That was The Washington Post's headline about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

But when Justice Antonin Scalia died, the headline was, "Supreme Court conservative dismayed liberals."

When the founder of ISIS was killed, the headline was: "Austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies."

But when President ...Read more

Bad policies fuel fires

From the Right / John Stossel /

"Mother Earth is angry!" says Nancy Pelosi in my newest video.

"The debate is over around climate change!" says California Governor Gavin Newsom, smirking, strangely.

They're eager to blame climate change for the wildfires in their state. I'm surprised they didn't say it causes COVID-19, too.

Newsom, ridiculously, says wildfires are another ...Read more

"This is extortion!" Corrupt politicians want the money for themselves

From the Right / John Stossel /

Politicians shut down businesses because of COVID-19. But the rules don't apply to everyone.

In San Francisco, gyms were forced to close, but government gyms stayed open.

In my new video, we see a Dallas woman being jailed for keeping her salon open and a New Jersey man getting arrested after working out indoors.

Ordinary people who ...Read more

Socialism leads to real government oppression

From the Right / John Stossel /

"I'm more anti-China than you!"

That's a new theme of this election.

Joe Biden says, "We will never again be at the mercy of China!" Donald Trump replies, "China would own our country if Joe Biden got elected!"

It's strange to hear competition, because just a few administrations ago, presidents were eager to celebrate China. "A future ...Read more

Vote Libertaian Jo Jorgensen, although she won't win!

From the Right / John Stossel /

The media obsess about Trump/Biden, but another candidate will be on every state ballot: Libertarian Party nominee Jo Jorgensen.

Dr. Jorgensen, a psychology lecturer at Clemson University, is very different from Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Instead of promising government solutions, she tells people, "You can spend your money better than the ...Read more

Which presidential candidate will bankrupt America first?

From the Right / John Stossel /

Last week, I tallied Joe Biden's spending plans. This week, President Trump's.

Which presidential candidate will bankrupt America first?

When Donald Trump ran for president, he promised "big league" spending cuts.

Once in office, he again said he'd cut the budget, adding, "There's a lot of fat in there."

There sure is.

Since I was born, ...Read more

Biden moves left and brings big spending with him

From the Right / John Stossel /

Which presidential candidate will bankrupt America first, Donald Trump or Joe Biden?

Last year, we compared the costs of the leading Democratic candidates' promises. At that time, Biden, to his credit, proposed the least new spending.

Kamala Harris promised the most. She wanted to add $4.2 trillion to America's debt. Her lavish promises didn't...Read more

Larry Elder and I talk anti-racist racists in my new video, excerpted here

From the Right / John Stossel /

Black Lives Matter protests led many people to want to do something useful to reduce racial injustice. Racial justice groups are being flooded with money.

Big companies made multimillion-dollar donations.

"Bad idea," says Black radio host Larry Elder in my new video.

"It is condescending... and not helpful. I urge white people to chill. Stop ...Read more

A new documentary champions the fossil fuel industry

From the Right / John Stossel /

Was the power on in your house this morning? If so, thank fossil fuels!

A few parts of America do get energy from other sources. Washington state has fast-flowing rivers that allow Washingtonians to get most of their electricity from hydroelectric power. Iowa now gets about 40% of its electricity from wind.

But most of us get power from the ...Read more

Get rid of NASA and privatize the space race

From the Right / John Stossel /

This week, American astronauts returned to earth. Their trip to the space station was the first manned launch from the U.S. in 10 years.

By NASA? No. Of course, not.

This space flight happened because government was not in charge.

An Obama administration committee had concluded that launching such a vehicle would take 12 years and cost...Read more

Progressive policies wreck everything

From the Right / John Stossel /

I laughed when I saw The Washington Post headline: "Minneapolis had progressive policies, but its economy still left black families behind."

The media are so clueless. Instead of "but," the headline should have said, "therefore," or "so, obviously."

Of course, progressive policies failed! They almost always do.

"If you wanted a poster child ...Read more
