Surprising Answers From Pompeo on Spending, Defense & Entitlements

February 1st, 2023 4:46 PM

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 he is smarter and more thoughtful than most…

The Scaremongers Are Wrong (Yet Again)

January 25th, 2023 6:40 PM

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 and again.

Even Greenpeace Says ‘Most Plastic Simply Cannot Be Recycled’

January 18th, 2023 7:10 PM

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 recycled. The worst is plastic. Even Greenpeace now…

Enes Kanter Freedom Sounds Off on China, NBA Hypocrisy, LeBron & Cena

January 4th, 2023 12:25 PM

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. “They were explaining to me about freedom of speech,…

Charity, Better Than Government

December 28th, 2022 5:29 PM

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 sends the kids to Catholic schools. I’m not Catholic, but I…

Not Your Father's Comic Books

December 26th, 2022 9:40 PM

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 the world, not everyone is happy.

The Science of Happiness and How to Get There

December 14th, 2022 3:31 PM

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 sisters who were so happy all the time that our film…

A New Gun Right Group -- Black Guns Matter

December 7th, 2022 3:42 PM

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 carries a gun wherever he goes. “This is my human right,” he…

Megyn Kelly, John Stossel SLAM Liberal Media Bias, Envy, and Hatred

November 30th, 2022 4:59 PM

Today, big media has an agenda. Fox and most talk radio push right; most other media spin left. For a long time, leftists pretended this wasn’t happening. In 36 years at CBS and ABC, none of my colleagues admitted leaning left. There were only “facts” versus “narrow-minded conservatives.” Then Bernie Goldberg’s book “Bias” came out. The book is dead-on accurate, and a huge bestseller, but my…

Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts, Part 2

November 16th, 2022 5:05 PM

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 are crucial because both power plants and cars need…

Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts, Part One

November 2nd, 2022 6:57 PM

Electric cars sales are up 66% this year. President Joe Biden promotes them, saying things like, “The great American road trip is going to be fully electrified” and, “There's no turning back.” To make sure we have no choice in the matter, some left-leaning states have moved to ban gas-powered cars altogether. California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order banning them by 2035. Oregon,…

Obama's Show ‘The G Word’ Is Big Government Propaganda

October 20th, 2022 11:22 PM

Netflix is paying Barack and Michelle Obama millions of dollars to produce shows for them. The latest Obama documentary series is “The G Word.” “G” for government. As Netflix documentaries go, this one is remarkably stupid. It’s big-government propaganda. Obama begins by claiming that he does his own income taxes, saying, “It’s actually easy.” I think he’s joking, but it’s not clear.

Musk Has His Work Cut Out for Him

October 16th, 2022 5:03 PM

I love Twitter. I love it because when I joined, I “followed” people, so I get to learn what they think. I also learn what the crowd thinks, and sometimes I get breaking news. Hooray for Twitter. I also hate Twitter. After I read my Twitter feed, I often feel disgusted with myself.

Myths About Hurricanes — Lessons From Hurricane Ian & Florida

October 6th, 2022 7:54 PM

Hurricane Ian is gone, but the media's myths about hurricanes live on. Reporters say the federal government must direct disaster response, as if only the feds have the knowledge and money to do it. “Debate is already growing about how big federal aid must be,” says CNN. Why?! Don't they know that government has no money of its own? That everything federal bureaucrats spend is taken from the…
