Amazon Fights Back

Seattle is worried about the well-being of the poor and mentally ill people living there, so it’s going to drive businesses out of town. OK, that’s not how the politicians describe their plan, but that’s probably how it will work out. Members of Seattle’s city council want all big Seattle businesses to pay a tax […]

Hating DeVos

People hate Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. When she spoke at the Kennedy School of Government, students held up signs calling her a “white supremacist.” When she tried to visit a school, activists physically blocked her way. The haters claim DeVos knows little about education, only got her job because she gave money to Republican […]

Propaganda Networks

Why does American journalist Abby Martin do propaganda for socialist murderers? You’ve heard about Russian propaganda. Martin once worked for RT, Russia’s state-run news network. Now she’s got a similar gig at teleSUR, an anti-capitalist, pro-socialist news network funded by Latin American leftists. I’d never heard of teleSUR before researching this week’s YouTube video. But […]

What should be done about school shootings? After the horrible shooting in Parkland, Florida, President Trump suggested that some teachers carry guns. “We need to let people know, you come in to our schools — you’re gonna be dead.” Anti-gun activists were horrified. But they probably didn’t know that many teachers have brought guns to […]

Thank You, Mrs. Bush

My brother Matt died of AIDS 26 years ago today, passing away in his bed in my parents’ home in Houston. It was a benighted time for people with AIDS. There were no antiretrovirals then. There was nothing much you could do for an AIDS patient but hold his hand. And many people still thought […]

A […]

War on Science

We’ve been told conservatives don’t believe in science and that there’s a “Republican war on science.” But John Tierney, who’s written about science for The New York Times for 25 years and now writes for the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, told me in my latest online video, “The real war on science is the one […]

Poisonous Taxes

Soda will cost you more in Philadelphia, Seattle, Boulder, Colorado, and a bunch of California cities because politicians in those places voted to tax it. The social engineers claim soda taxes will “reduce obesity,” “lower diabetes rates,” “reduce medical costs,” etc. But the politicians’ main goal is to bring in money. Philadelphia city council members […]

The Red Pill

In the movie “The Matrix,” swallowing a red pill reveals the truth, while downing a blue pill leaves you trapped in illusion. Today, in the parlance of some political activists, “taking the red pill” means seeing the lies of mainstream media — and learning the truth. “People don’t care to watch CNN anymore: People pay […]

Climate Exit

President Trump’s pick to be the new secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, is not a fan of the Paris climate agreement, the treaty that claims it will slow global warning by reducing the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. Politicians from most of the world’s nations signed the deal, and President Obama said “we may see this […]
