Biden’s Democracy Smokescreen in 2024

May 30th, 2024 1:21 PM

President Joe Biden makes no speech without mentioning the importance of democracy in our nation. We would like to believe this comes from deep ideals about human liberty lodged within our president. But more accurate is that Biden, a politician all his adult life, is defined by just that — politics. No word, no act emanates from our president that does not emerge from some political…

Fix Social Security With Ownership, Not More Government

May 15th, 2024 10:00 AM

The trustees for Social Security have just issued their annual report. And, as we have learned annually over recent years, the system cannot meet its obligations. According to this latest report, the Social Security system will not be able to meet its obligations to retirees by 2035. In 2035, the system will be adequate to meet just 83% of its obligations. This is supposedly good news because…


CBS’s Report on College Food Insecurity Inadvertently Calls for Reform

February 20th, 2024 12:53 AM

CBS’s report on campus food insecurity out of UC Davis served its viewers with an unexpected dose of absurdist theater. The report also stands as both an accidental call for fundamental reforms of the American secondary education system, and an ominous look forward should reform not happen.


ABC Hails Connecticut Using Stimulus to Ax Medical Debt, Omits Party

February 2nd, 2024 4:45 PM

Friday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the show that acts more like corporate whores for Disney and flowery nonsense as opposed to a real newscast, swooned with approval at Connecticut Democratic Governor Ned Lamont announcing he’ll use taxpayer funds from Joe Biden’s inflation-inducing boondoggle to wipe out billions in medical debt.

Social Security: A Broken Socialist Dinosaur

January 25th, 2024 6:01 PM

It seems many still harbor, or want to perpetuate, the illusion that our Social Security system is not in trouble. Let me quote here from a press release from the Social Security Administration released March 31, 2023: “The Social Security Board of Trustees today released its annual report on the financial status of the Social Security Trust Funds. The combined asset reserves of the Old-Age…

Flooded in Debt: Rand Paul’s Fight to Fix Federal Flood Insurance

January 10th, 2024 1:37 PM

Sen. John Kennedy is upset because Sen. Rand Paul wants to limit federal flood insurance. But Paul is right. In my new video, Paul says, “(It) shouldn’t be for rich people.” That should be obvious. Actually, federal flood insurance shouldn’t be for anyone. Government has no business offering it. That’s a job for ... the insurance business.

A Recipe for Big Government: ‘Food Insecurity’

November 3rd, 2023 12:44 PM

President Joe Biden says 24 million Americans “suffer from food insecurity!” News anchors were shocked that there is “food insecurity in the richest country in the world!” ABC hosts turned “insecurity” into “hunger.” But in my new video, Rachel Sheffield, who researches welfare policy at the Heritage Foundation, explains, “Food insecurity is not the same thing as hunger. It just means that…

Entitlements, Spending Are the Real Problem (Not Kevin McCarthy)

October 5th, 2023 5:59 PM

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley got to the heart of the government shutdown fireworks in her appearance on Fox News Sunday. “Let's be clear what the Freedom Caucus is really trying to do; they are trying to cut spending.” That's of course correct. One would be hard-pressed to find any Republican, Freedom Caucus member or not, who does not understand the gravity of the state of…

Budget Gimmicks: D.C. Labels Everything an ‘Emergency’ to Spend More

September 25th, 2023 11:51 AM

Did you survive the budget cuts from the last debt ceiling fight? President Joe Biden called them “draconian,” while Republicans praised the deal’s “historic reductions in spending.” But both parties conned us, as my new video explains. What they call “cuts” were just a reduction in their planned spending increase. Instead of raising spending by 7.8%, they increased it by “only” 3.9%. Only…


Predictably Lame ABC Blasts ‘Hardline’ GOP on Possible Gov’t Shutdown

September 20th, 2023 2:25 PM

Anytime there’s the possibility of a government shutdown, one can count on the liberal media to throw hissy fits blaming Republicans as wanting to leave the elderly financially broke, kids starved of preschool, and/or Big Bird killed to name a few of the usual scare tactics. ABC’s Good Morning America wrote another chapter Wednesday in that never-ending act of liberal media bias as…

Government Central Planning Fails—Free People Create Order on Our Own

July 28th, 2023 3:25 PM

Politicians have big plans for us. President Joe Biden repeatedly says, “I have a plan for that.” “I alone can fix it,” shouted President Donald Trump. But most of life, and the best of life, happens when politicians butt out and let us make our own choices. Chinese philosopher Zhuang Zhou called that “spontaneous order.” Thousands of years later, economist F. A. Hayek added that order comes “…

New Heritage Report Says America Is the Least Free We’ve Ever Been

June 26th, 2023 3:00 PM

Politicians claim their bills bring us good things. Free health care! Child care! A cellphone for all! But government isn’t Santa Claus. Government is force. Most every law takes away a little of our money or freedom or both. The Heritage Foundation ranks economic freedom across the globe. The United States once ranked No. 4 in the world, but we’ve been in decline. This year, as my new video…

Ticking Time Bomb: Social Security & Medicare Are Broke

June 3rd, 2023 12:13 AM

Social Security is toast. So is Medicare. Too many of us old people live longer, so there are not enough working people to support us. Soon both Social Security and Medicare will be broke. Our politicians don’t have the guts to do anything about it. Or even talk about it. It’s easy to see why. Recently, France’s president, trying to keep his country’s pension system from going broke, raised…

Our Fake Spending Debates

June 2nd, 2023 6:14 PM

This week, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and President Joe Biden cut a deal to raise the debt limit. The breakthrough came after three months of Biden pledging not to even negotiate over the debt limit. Instead, Biden was forced to concede to a 1% cap on increases for non-military spending, a cutback on IRS funding, a clawback of some unspent COVID-19 allocations, and addition…
