Bad Policies Fuel Fires

September 25th, 2020 12:04 AM

"Mother Earth is angry!" says Nancy Pelosi in my newest video. "The debate is over around climate change!" says California Governor Gavin Newsom, smirking, strangely. They're eager to blame climate change for the wildfires in their state. I'm surprised they didn't say it causes COVID-19, too. Newsom, ridiculously, says wildfires are another reason to get more electric cars on the road. I…

Politicians on the Take?

September 17th, 2020 4:27 PM

Politicians shut down businesses because of COVID-19. But the rules don't apply to everyone. In San Francisco, gyms were forced to close, but government gyms stayed open. In my new video, we see a Dallas woman being jailed for keeping her salon open and a New Jersey man getting arrested after working out indoors. Ordinary people who break the rules get punished. But not House Speaker…

Stossel Column: China’s Dark Turn

September 11th, 2020 2:36 PM

"I'm more anti-China than you!" That's a new theme of this election. Joe Biden says, "We will never again be at the mercy of China!" Donald Trump replies, "China would own our country if Joe Biden got elected!" It's strange to hear competition, because just a few administrations ago, presidents were eager to celebrate China. "A future of greater trade and growth and human…

John Stossel: Big Spending Biden

August 21st, 2020 4:37 PM

Which presidential candidate will bankrupt America first, Donald Trump or Joe Biden? Last year, we compared the costs of the leading Democratic candidates' promises. At that time, Biden, to his credit, proposed the least new spending. Kamala Harris promised the most. She wanted to add $4.2 trillion to America's debt. Her lavish promises didn't win her supporters; she dropped out soon after.…

John Stossel Column: Anti-Racist Racists

August 13th, 2020 5:09 PM

Black Lives Matter protests led many people to want to do something useful to reduce racial injustice. Now racial justice groups are being flooded with money, and big companies have made multimillion-dollar donations. “Bad idea," says black radio host Larry Elder in my new video. “It is condescending ... and not helpful. I urge white people to chill. Stop helping us, because you're making…

The Left's Double Standard on Energy Policies

August 6th, 2020 8:58 PM

Was the power on in your house this morning? If so, thank fossil fuels! A few parts of America do get energy from other sources. Washington state has fast-flowing rivers that allow Washingtonians to get most of their electricity from hydroelectric power. Iowa now gets about 40% of its electricity from wind. But most of us get power from the much-hated fossil fuels, primarily natural gas…

The Private Space Race

July 29th, 2020 5:09 PM

This week, American astronauts will return to earth. Their trip to the space station was the first manned launch from the U.S. in 10 years. By NASA? No. Of course, not. This space flight happened because the government was not in charge. An Obama administration committee had concluded that launching such a vehicle would take 12 years and cost $36 billion. But this rocket was finished in…

Progressive Policies Wreck Everything

July 23rd, 2020 11:12 PM

I laughed when I saw The Washington Post headline: "Minneapolis had progressive policies, but its economy still left black families behind." The media are so clueless. Instead of "but," the headline should have said, "therefore," or "so, obviously." Of course, progressive policies failed! They almost always do. "If you wanted a poster child for the progressive movement, it would…

Too Much Faith in Models

July 15th, 2020 11:22 PM

Between 2 million and 3 million Americans will die! That was the prediction from "experts" at London's Imperial College when COVID-19 began. They did also say if there was "social distancing of the whole population," the death toll could be cut in half, but 1.1 million to 1.46 million Americans would still die by this summer. Our actual death toll has been about…

John Stossel’s Anti-Socialism Video Age Restricted by YouTube

December 5th, 2018 5:39 PM
Libertarian TV personality and former ABC reporter John Stossel says Youtube placed age restrictions on a video he published about socialism.  The restrictions have since been undone, but the fact they occurred is part of a trend that has many conservatives and free speech advocates concerned.

Reporter Frustrated Floridians Not Buying Climate and Hurricane Hype

September 15th, 2017 2:38 PM
Why, oh why, can't you Florida yahoos accept that Hurricane Irma was caused by global warming? That was the desperate but condescending attitude of the UK Guardian reporter Ed Pilkington in his September 11 article about Hurricane Irma which expressed surprise that (GASP!) Floridians did not buy into the global warming dogma as the cause of the storm. His condescension begins with…

Fox's Stossel Stings the Self-Defense of the 'Stupid Hostile Media'

July 12th, 2017 7:51 PM
Fox News correspondent John Stossel has just written a stinging column on the "Stupid Hostile Media." He began with New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg, who celebrated July 4 by suggesting "anti-press" conservatives shouldn't hate the media so much. They always make the mistake of opposing or exposing the liberal media is always anti-journalism -- as they dismiss…

John Stossel Returns to TV, Skewers Liberal Pro-Regulation Bias

May 15th, 2016 9:48 PM
John Stossel returned to the air on Fox Business on Friday night after treatment for lung cancer. He told People magazine he doesn't feel like he deserves special attention: "People have been very nice, saying they have been praying for me. I feel a little embarrassed, because I don't feel I had a life-threatening diagnosis. I caught something early, they took it out." Stossel…

MSNBC's Schultz Slams FBN's John Stossel as 'Fossil Fool,' 'Poverty an

April 22nd, 2014 5:16 PM
On the Friday, April 18, The Ed Show, MSNBC host Ed Schultz trashed John Stossel's appearance on FNC's Fox and Friends in which the FBN host defended fossil fuels as making it easier for people to exit poverty than other more expensive options. After calling Stossel a "fossil fool" as he began the show's regular "Pretenders" segment, the MSNBC host parroted…
