In Money We Trust?

Look at the dollar bills in your wallet. They say they are “legal tender for all debts.” But are they? What makes them valuable? What makes them worth anything? Each bill says, “In God We Trust.” But God won’t guarantee their value. The $20 bill depicts the White House. Congress is on $50s. But neither […]

Sex ‘Trafficking’ Panic

When police charged New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft with soliciting prostitution, the press said the police rescued sex slaves. “They were women who were from China, who were forced into sex slavery,” said Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show.” We’re told this happens all the time. “Human trafficking is the fastest growing illegal business […]

Independent Journalists

“I’m not going to let them bully me out of reporting,” said Tim Pool after recording an Antifa protest where angry activists cursed at him. There might have been violence, but Antifa’s “de-escalation team” protected him, he says. That surprised me. “Antifa has a de-escalation team?” I ask Pool in my latest internet video. “They […]

A Lie, a Myth and a Question

Socialists like Bernie Sanders tell us that “the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.” That’s a lie. Yes, rich people got absurdly rich. Last year, says Oxfam, “the wealth of the world’s billionaires increased (by) $2.5 billion a day.” I say, so what? The poor did not get poorer. Bernie’s wrong about that. […]

Right to Print Arms

Are you very afraid? 3D-printed guns are coming. “Virtually undetectable!” shrieked CNN. “This changes the safety of Americans forever!” shrieked MSNBC. Does it?

Zuckerberg Cronyism

Please, regulate me! That was Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s message to Congress recently. “Lawmakers often tell me we have too much power over speech, and frankly I agree,” he wrote in an op-ed. “(W)e shouldn’t make so many important decisions … on our own.” It sounds so self-sacrificing. But give me a break. Big companies […]

Breakfast Isn’t Important

I skipped breakfast again this morning. I won’t worry about it. Yes, I’ve heard the advice. “It’s the most important meal of the day.” It balances blood sugar levels, kick-starts your metabolism, stimulates the brain, etc. A Harvard University study said men who regularly skip breakfast have a 27 percent higher risk of suffering a […]

The Socialist Fantasy

Venezuela is a disaster. Yet 20 years ago, it was the wealthiest country in Latin America. It still has the world’s biggest oil reserves. It should be a happy and prosperous nation. But then Venezuela went socialist. Democratic socialist to be exact. They voted for it. Hugo Chavez promised the poor “social and economic reforms.” […]
