Biden Puts IRS Funding Ahead of Military and Border Security

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Everyone should be deeply troubled by the recent report that the Army is on pace to miss its recruiting goal by dozens of thousands of troops and by the report that followed a few days later, alleging that the Border Patrol is running short of agents in Arizona and Texas. The border is so porous these days that even mayors of sanctuary cities ...Read more

The Left Wants To Abolish Everything, Even This Column

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Any aging baby boomer (like myself) knows that the anthem of the radicals of the 1960s and 1970s was sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Let the good times roll. Back then, the joke was that a conservative was someone who lived in mortal fear that someone, somewhere, was having fun.

But if this new generation of authoritarian liberals has its way, ...Read more

When Millionaires and Billionaires Leave, Everyone Loses

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Liberals are very good at chasing rich people out of their states.

Blue states lose billions of tax dollars and many tens of thousands of jobs as a result of the migration of rich people leaving high-tax and high-crime states. It seems to happen nearly every day.

Consider Elon Musk. He left California for Texas. He paid $11 billion in federal ...Read more

How a Green Agenda Caused the Economic Collapse of An Entire Country!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Remember how the world, especially the American media, fawned over former German Chancellor Angela Merkel?

The adoration was so over the top that in 2015 Time magazine named Merkel its "Person of the Year." It described her as the "Chancellor of the Free World."

Time owes whatever readers it has left a solemn apology. Today, Germans are ...Read more

Biden's Green New Deal Is Increasing Greenhouse Gases

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Here's an amazing but true statistic. After more than a decade of declining carbon emissions here in the United States, in 2021, President Joe Biden's first year in office, emissions rose.

In other words, not only have Biden's energy policies been a disaster for our economy and national security as we have become more dependent on Russia and ...Read more

Biden Is the Economy's Supply Chain Problem

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Joe Biden has become America's "it's not my fault" president. Whether it's the inflation, the border, the crime, the gas prices, the Afghanistan exit fiasco or the stock market collapse, Biden has become an expert at pointing the finger at someone else.

His presidency so far reminds me of the famous campaign slogan of then-New York Mayor David ...Read more

The Great Biden Recession of 2022 Is Already Here!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Last week, I was invited to testify before a House committee hearing titled: "How the Biden American Rescue Plan Saved the Economy and Lives." I am not making this up. Can you imagine taking a victory lap, given our current conditions?

I told the Democrats on the committee that the idea that Congress would hold a hearing like this when the ...Read more

The Swamp vs. America: Biden Policies Are Making America Poorer!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

I've been struck by the opinion divide on the state of the economy between people with real jobs in America and the elite opinions in Washington.

Gallup and other primary and reputable pollsters find that the public is very worried. About 2 in 10 respondents rate the U.S. economy as good or great. That compares with nearly 6 in 10 people who ...Read more

Beware! 100% Green Energy Could Destroy the Planet!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

The untold story about "green energy" is that it can't possibly be scaled up to provide anywhere near the energy to replace fossil fuels. (Unless we are headed back to the stone ages, which is what some of the "de-growth" advocates favor).

Right now, the United States gets about 70% of its energy from fossil fuels. To go to zero over the next ...Read more

House GOP Trust-busting Bill Is an Economic Disaster

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

With President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda in ruins, Democrats want to blame Big Business for the mayhem of high inflation and a collapsing stock market.

The White House has pointed its finger at every industry, from Big Tech to meat producers, oil and gas producers, the poultry industry and pharmaceutical companies. Apparently, ...Read more

Democrats' Latest Phony Inflation Scapegoat: Credit Cards

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

In this administration, it's always someone else's fault. Inflation is now the No. 1 concern of voters, so the White House first blamed COVID. Then Donald Trump's tax cuts. Then Vladimir Putin. Then meatpackers and the poultry industry, Big Oil and pharmaceutical companies.

Now, Democrats have identified a new inflation scapegoat: plastic. Visa...Read more

When the People Tasked With Protecting Our Children Are the Villains

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

The evidence shows that school closures during COVID were an epic public policy blunder. The school lockdowns in many states were arguably the most significant episode of government-sponsored child abuse in American history.

You don't have to take my word for it. Last week, the liberal New York Times came to the same conclusion after an ...Read more
