$4 a Gallon Has Us Rethinking the Climate Agenda

From the Right / John Stossel /

The price of gas keeps rising. "The reason for that is because of Putin's war," said President Joe Biden. But that's impossible. Most of the price rise came before Putin attacked Ukraine. So some politicians simply blame "corporate greed." Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse accuses the oil industry of collecting "excess profit." Sen. ...Read more

The Organic Food Cult Spreads Disinformation!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Activists have convinced Americans that "organic" food is better -- healthier, better-tasting, life-extending. As a result, poor parents feel guilty if they can't afford to pay $7 for organic eggs. This misinformation is spread by people like Alexis Baden-Mayer, political director of the Organic Consumers Association. She says organic food is ...Read more

In Some States, Miss a Tax Payment, Politicians Will Take Your Home!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Did you know that in some states, if you miss one tax payment, local politicians will take your home, sell it and keep all the profits? Really.

Tawanda Hall was behind on her taxes. She was on a payment plan but had missed $900. She didn't expect Southfield, Michigan, to take her entire house because of that. It was worth $286,000 more ...Read more

Wikipedia Now Little More Than Leftist Propaganda!

From the Right / John Stossel /

I love Wikipedia. I donated thousands of dollars to the Wikimedia Foundation. Before Wikipedia, all we had were printed encyclopedias -- out of date by the time we bought them. Then libertarian Jimmy Wales came up with a web-based, crowd-sourced encyclopedia. Crowd-sourced? A Britannica editor called Wikipedia "a public restroom." But Wales won ...Read more

Mainstream Media Stupid and Clueless About Surge Pricing

From the Right / John Stossel /

The media's ignorance about basic economics is galling. I expect it from politicians. I expect it from The New York Times. But it's sad to see in the New York Post, my town's rare alternative to Democrat media. Recently the tabloid freaked out over higher prices imposed by ride-share companies. "New Yorkers are fed up with forking over excessive...Read more

The Lord Knows the Publishing Industry Won't Publish Children's Books About Conservatives!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Bookstores now sell only certain kinds of children's books. "Go into Barnes & Noble," says Bethany Mandel in my new video, "and you will be met with a wall of biographies. Probably 27 different books about former Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Great. A ton about Kamala Harris. Great." But where are the biographies on conservatives? ...Read more

The Story of Hunter Biden's Laptop Demonstrates the Arrogance and Bias of the Mainstream Media!

From the Right / John Stossel /

President Joe Biden says he never talked business with his son. Maybe he didn't. Maybe that Ukrainian gas company paid Hunter Biden half a million dollars because he has unique business skills that no one else noticed. It's possible. But unlikely. Now a Justice Department investigation may tell us whether Hunter is a sleazy opportunist who broke...Read more

Immigrants, Even the "Worst of the Worst," Make America Better!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Millions flee Ukraine. Where will they go? Some want to come to America. But doing that legally is hard. A complex system is supposed to determine which people deserve to get in line to get in. "The line is broken," explains Reason Magazine editor at large Matt Welch in my new video. For example, America has a nursing shortage, but immigration ...Read more

Thus Far, Renewable Energy Options Are Not Sufficient!

From the Right / John Stossel /

The "Greens" promise renewables, solar and wind power, will replace fossil fuels. After all, the wind and sun are free, and they don't pollute! Oops. Now countries that embraced renewables are so desperate for power that they eagerly import coal, the worst polluter of all! Do they apologize? No. Greens never apologize.

Germany was a ...Read more

Rep. Ron Paul Continues to Promote Freedom!

From the Right / John Stossel /

I dislike politicians. I don't trust people who are so desperately eager to run others' lives. But Rep. Ron Paul is different. He wants government to leave us alone. He promoted the benefits of limited government and free markets long before I'd even thought about them.

I first interviewed Paul in 2007. ABC News wouldn't broadcast it. ...Read more

We Must Stop A Very Big Threat to the Free Society!

From the Right / John Stossel /

Russia's invasion revealed big differences in how politicians deal with threats. The president of Ukraine, when offered evacuation, said, "I need ammunition, not a ride." He's a leader. By contrast, in Canada a few weeks before, when truckers staged a protest against COVID-19 rules, the cowardly Prime Minister Justin Trudeau felt so threatened ...Read more

We Must Stop Invasive Overreaching By the President!

From the Right / John Stossel /

President Joe Biden just gave his State of the Union Address. Here's what I wish Biden said:

"Russia's unwarranted invasion of Ukraine reminds us why it's crucial that America's military remains strong, and focused on defense, not distractions like gender equity.

I stand with the people of Ukraine, and I will help them where I can, but ...Read more

We Must Stop the American Medical Association from Being Too Woke!

From the Right / John Stossel /

The American Medical Association now tells doctors: Use woke language! It's issued a 54-page guide telling doctors things like, don't say "equality"; say "equity." Don't say "minority"; say "historically marginalized." Much of the AMA's advisory sounds like Marxism: "Expose ... property rights ... Individualism is problematic ... Corporations .....Read more
