The next presidential race is on. One probable candidate is former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He just released a new book: "Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America I Love." Pompeo must be a smart guy. He graduated first in his class at West Point. Then he went to Harvard Law School. Interviewing him makes it clear that...Read more
Have you heard? The world is about to end! "60 Minutes" recently featured Paul Ehrlich, author of the bestseller, "The Population Bomb." "Humanity is not sustainable," he said. Why would "60 Minutes" interview Ehrlich? For years, Ehrlich said, "We are very close to a famine" and, "In the next 15 years, the end will come." He's been wrong again ...Read more
For decades, we've been told: recycle! "If we're not using recycled paper, we're cutting down more trees!" says Lynn Hoffman, co-president of Eureka Recycling. Recycling paper (or cardboard) does save trees. Recycling aluminum does save energy. But that's about it. The ugly truth is that many "recyclables" sent to recycling plants are never ...Read more
It's now been three years since COVID hit. At the start of the pandemic, "experts" shouted: "Stay home!" "Close schools!" "Wash your hands!" "Disinfect countertops!" Clearly, disinfecting countertops and washing hands made no difference. What about closing schools and lockdowns?
The media trashed Gov. Ron DeSantis when he lifted Florida's ...Read more
Teenage basketball star Enes Kanter was shocked when his teammate criticized President Barack Obama on Facebook. "Dude, what are you doing?" he exclaimed. He feared his teammate would be jailed. Kanter is from Turkey, where, as Kanter explains in my new video, people who criticize the president do go to jail. His teammates laughed at him....Read more
It's the season for giving. I'll give! I'll donate to the Doe Fund, a charity that helps ex-cons find purpose in life through work. "Work works!" they say. It does. Doe Fund graduates are less likely to go back to jail. I'll donate to Student Sponsor Partners, which helps at-risk kids escape bad "public (government-run)" schools. SSP ...Read more
Did you know that Superman's son is bisexual? So is Batman's sidekick, Robin, and lots of other superheroes created by Marvel and DC Comics. The author of the bisexual Superman story says gay people write to say they "burst into tears" when they saw that the characters had become gay.
While it's nice to make LGBTIQ+ people feel more welcome in ...Read more
Are you happy? Many people say they feel happier during the holidays. But I'm not happy. Democrats and Republicans keep voting for bigger government. Few people accept the idea that government that governs least -- governs best. It makes me sad.
I once did an ABC special on "The Mystery of Happiness." We interviewed the "Giggle Twins," two ...Read more
We know about Black Lives Matter. My new video is about a group called Black Guns Matter.
Maj Toure, a Philadelphia high school dropout turned activist, tells me he started it after he got tired of hearing people endless chanting, "Black lives matter" but saying nothing "when it's time for Black people to defend their lives."
Toure ...Read more
Thursday, if you eat a nice meal, thank the Pilgrims. They made Thanksgiving possible. They left the Old World to escape religious persecution. They imagined a new society where everyone worked together and shared everything. In other words, they dreamed of socialism. Socialism then almost killed them.
As I explain in my weekly video, the ...Read more
Politicians praise electric cars. If everyone buys them, they say, solar and wind power will replace our need for oil. But that's absurd. Here is the rest of my list of "inconvenient facts" about electric cars.
"The future of the auto industry is electric," says President Joe Biden. He assumes a vast improvement in batteries. Better batteries ...Read more
The Good: We have divided government. Since Democrats no longer control Congress, they can't bankrupt America quite so fast!
The Bad: Prediction markets, which I touted as the best guide to elections, didn't do so well. Yes, they correctly said Republicans would take the House, but they'd also predicted Republicans would take the Senate. Polls ...Read more
