YouTube Conservative Commentator Calls Out Censorship

From the Right / John Stossel /

The most viewed conservative commentator on YouTube is Steven Crowder with his channel, Louder with Crowder.

His fans love his politically incorrect jokes.

He also sets up a table at college campuses, invites people to debate, and airs the debate unedited. One such video, titled, "There Are Two Genders: Change My Mind," has been viewed 40 ...Read more

Biden Wants to 'Make America California'

From the Right / John Stossel /

I was surprised to read (in The Los Angeles Times) that the Biden administration's "role model for America" is... California! He wants to "Make America California."

That's is a terrible idea.

Californians now rush to move out of California.

Some hopeful folks still move there, but so many more leave that California now loses more than ...Read more

Woke Colleges Set Up Kids to Fail

From the Right / John Stossel /

Did you take the SATs to try to get into college? Your kids may not have to.

More than 1,300 schools have become "test optional," meaning students need not submit SAT scores. Some, like the entire University of California system, now won't even look at scores.

There are seemingly legitimate reasons to oppose the tests. Richer kids often...Read more

Get Off My Property!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Before dawn, dozens of union activists invaded a strawberry farm, shouting through bullhorns. This frightened workers and infuriated the farm's owner, Mike Fahner, who thought that in America, owning property means you have a right to control access to that property -- your home is your castle, and all that.

Not in California, where politicians...Read more

'Woke' Awards Shows Cheapen Something Which Should Be Based Stritcly on Merit

From the Right / John Stossel /

Oscar nominees were announced this week.

The AP highlighted the record number of nominations of "actors of color" and "a record year for women."

Today, such declarations are important in this "woke" media world.

Future Oscars will have actual quotas for minority groups.

Actor David Oyelowo praised the new standards, saying, "Anyone and ...Read more

Leave Vaccination Programs to the Real Experts

From the Right / John Stossel /

The vaccine rollout crawls forward. Most of us will spend weeks, or months, waiting.

Great Britain did better. As of today, one-third of the English are already vaccinated, twice as many as in America.

Why?

A big reason is that our government decided to rigidly follow its regimen for the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines: two doses, about a month ...Read more

Everyone Is Essential

From the Right / John Stossel /

Politicians have too much power over our lives.

Many used the pandemic as another excuse to take more.

Early on, politicians declared that they would decide who was "essential." Everyone else was told to stay home.

Much of the economy stopped. Millions were laid off.

Then politicians relaxed the rules for industries that they deemed "...Read more

Hatred of Capitalism is Killing the Rhino!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Today's environmental activists are so hostile to capitalism that they end up killing animals they want to protect.

Like the African rhinoceros.

Poachers kill them to get their horns, which can sell for as much as $300,000. Poachers mostly sell in China and Vietnam, to people who carve them into ornaments or sell them as aphrodisiacs. By the ...Read more

They're Trying to Shape What You Believe

From the Right / John Stossel /

I love my digital devices, but people keep telling me to worry more about my privacy.

"Encrypt your emails!" "Drop Google and use search engines like DuckDuckGo that don't track us!"

I probably should. But I don't. I'm lazy, and I like that web companies know me and show me things I'm interested in. I like that they display "...Read more

Straight Socialism Never Works

From the Right / John Stossel /

Last week, I reported on two myths about socialism. My new video covers three more.

Myth No. 3: Socialism works if it's "democratic."

As the Democratic Socialists of America put it, "Society should be run democratically -- to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few."

Sounds nice. If socialists are elected, then we'll have a more just...Read more

Let's examine some myths about socialism

From the Right / John Stossel /

People hate America's big disparities in wealth. It's a reason why, among young people, socialism is as popular as capitalism.

The Democratic Socialists of America want a country based on "freedom, equality and solidarity." That sure sounds good.

But does socialism bring that?

My new video debunks several myths about socialism.

One reason ...Read more

If politicians do it, it's always necessary; rules are for the little people

From the Right / John Stossel /

After Joe Biden's inauguration, he ordered everyone on federal lands to wear a mask. That night, he and his family posed for pictures at the Lincoln Memorial -- none of them wearing a mask.

California Governor Gavin Newsom told Californians it's "essential" to avoid "mixing with people outside of your household." Then he had dinner with lots of...Read more

Thomas Sowell doesn't believe Biden's policies will lift people out of poverty

From the Right / John Stossel /

Joe Biden says he'll "advance racial equity" by making "bold investments" in "Affordable Housing," aiding "businesses owned by Black and Brown people," establishing an "Equity Commission," etc.

Gosh, that'll do it.

Others demand reparations for slavery, more social programs and defunding the police.

Yet, economist Thomas Sowell says, "I haven...Read more
