Remember US Energy Independence Day?

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Once, during a meeting with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump inside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, we discussed energy policy. I told Trump that if we went all out to produce America's abundant supply of oil, gas and coal, the United States could be energy independent in four years.

Trump looked at me from behind his desk and ...Read more

We Must Save the Children! We Must Fire the Teachers Unions!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

It started in Chicago, where an incredible 91% of union teachers voted to go on strike and refused to do what they get paid to do, which is teach. Then the union walkouts spread to Maryland, New Jersey and California.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a liberal Democrat, has attacked the Chicago teachers unions for "holding kids hostage." She is ...Read more

Union Bosses Against Union Jobs

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Why don't the union bosses in America represent their union members anymore? Could it be because the union leadership has become more beholden to the Democratic politicians in Washington than the rank-and-file workers who pay the dues?

We saw an example of this betrayal of the workers not long ago when the United Association of Union Plumbers ...Read more

The Trump Economic Record Looks Better Every Day!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

When running against Donald Trump for president, Joe Biden often made the now-ironic charge that any president who has allowed so many deaths from COVID-19 should never be in the White House. Today, there are more deaths from COVID under Biden than under Trump -- and that is even with the vaccine.

But it isn't just on health issues that ...Read more

We Must Stop the Left's 'Green Energy' Boondoggle!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

How much do solar, wind and electric vehicle companies get in federal handouts and tax loopholes in President Joe Biden's Build Back Better bill? Well over $100 billion in taxpayer largesse. If all the tax credits are included, that number could reach half a trillion dollars. No other industry in American history has ever received this lucrative...Read more

We Must Stop the Left's Greatest Financial Swindle of All Time!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

One of the most popular provisions of the 1994 Contract with America was a rule requiring Congress to live by the same laws that families and businesses are subject to.

So, why doesn't Congress live by the financial and accounting standards required of the rest of us?

I'm speaking of the multitrillion-dollar Build Back Better law, a giant ...Read more

Will Congress Take Away Your Credit Card?

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

How would you feel about Congress snatching away your credit card or preventing you from participating in credit card reward programs?

Don't laugh. Left-wing groups in Washington are declaring that the plastic card in your wallet is the financial villain that needs to get reined in.

A new study from researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of ...Read more

Joe Biden's Dirty Little Secret: He Wants Higher Gasoline Prices

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

When he announced last week that he would release more oil from the American Strategic Petroleum Reserve, President Joe Biden told the American people he is doing everything possible to bring down gas prices at the pump.

That's a lie. This administration and the climate change crazies have declared war on American energy.

They want high...Read more

We Need a Little More Milton Friedman Right About Now

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Not long ago, President Joe Biden made an offhanded comment that "Milton Friedman isn't running the show anymore."

This president has seldom spoken more valid words. And that's where the trouble has begun.

If you were to rate the three most influential economic minds of all time, you'd be hard-pressed to come up with a better trio than Adam ...Read more

Will Joe Biden Learn Jimmy Carter's Inflation Lesson?

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

In the 1980 presidential campaign, the Republican challenger, Ronald Reagan, said, "A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his." The Gipper turned out to be correct. The gale-force winds of rising inflation had knocked working-class people to the ground, ...Read more

There They Go Again with The 'Tax the Rich' Ruse!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Be honest. Does anyone really believe that any of these new schemes that President Joe Biden conjures up every few days to "tax the rich" will cause Bill Gates, Elon Musk or Warren Buffett to pay more taxes?

It's clear why the superrich are a tempting target to, as Biden puts it, "pay their fair share." We have billionaires with almost ...Read more

We Must Stop Biden's $4 Trillion Spend, Tax, Borrow and Print Money Scheme!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

A good friend who owns a major auto dealership in the Dallas area recently told me he typically has about 500 to 1,000 cars and trucks on his lot. Now, he has 15. That's how severe the supply chain problem has become.

He said people are buying cars over the sticker price. You usually haggle down the price for a new car. Now, you haggle up the ...Read more

Will All Of America Go On Strike?

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

If you think the supply chain problems, empty shelves in stores and higher inflation are problems now, wait a few weeks; they are likely to get worse. And this isn't a result of hurricanes, the pandemic or other acts of nature. It's all due to political incompetence that starts in the Oval Office.

Here's one prominent reason the supply shortage...Read more
