Destructive Ideas

Joe Biden and Donald Trump fight about everything. But they agree about one thing: tariffs, the subject of my new video. Trump imposed tariffs on steel, aluminum, washing machines, solar panels and other products from China. Then Biden took office and slapped a 100% tariff on Chinese electric ...

President Donald Trump

Freedom Under Trump

Donald Trump recently spoke at the Libertarian National Convention. Good for him. It's encouraging that he reached out to those of us who often disagree with him. We libertarians put individual liberty first. We think government that governs least governs best. That's a reason we fear today's ...

Scaremongers

Have you heard about the "bee-pocalypse?" My new video explains. Honeybees are dying! It's another environmental crisis we're supposed to worry about. The media call it "bee-pocalypse" and "bee-mageddon!" A YouTube video with 15 million views says bee-mageddon "could lead to millions of people ...

Censorship: A Global Pandemic

"Palestine will be free!" chant the protesters. "From the river to the sea. Some says that's a call for genocide -- another holocaust -- elimination of Israel and all Jews. So, should the chant be illegal? The House of Representatives just voted to make it illegal at universities. Both ...

U.S. Capitol Building

‘Drain the Swamp’

Presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to "drain the swamp!" The "swamp" is the permanent Washington bureaucracy working to perpetuate itself. In 2020, then-President Trump said he was succeeding: "We're draining the Washington swamp!" But it's not true. "He made government bigger," ...

Capitalism Versus Racism

Capitalism and racism go together? I hear it all the time. "Racism is intricately linked to capitalism," says famous Marxist Angela Davis. "It's a mistake to assume that we can combat racism by leaving capitalism in place." "Anti-racist" activist Ibram X. Kendi says, "In order to truly be ...

Trade Is Evil?

Leaders of both parties agree: We must reduce globalization. "China is ripping us on trade," says Donald Trump. Our trade deficit is "an immorality," says Nancy Pelosi. But it's not. In my new video, Scott Lincicome of the Cato Institute points out, "Selling us stuff is hardly ripping us ...

In My House!

What if you come home and find strangers living in your house? I assumed you order the squatters out, and if they resist, call the police, and they will kick them out. Wrong. Pro-tenant laws passed by anti-capitalist politicians now protect squatters. If a squatter just lies about having a ...

Degrowth

The left has a new goal: degrowth! We should "buy less stuff," forgive debts, grow our own food, etc. They say this will "build a more just and sustainable society" and "save the planet" from "climate chaos." This idea is popular with capitalism-haters. One at a ChangeNow "eco conference" says, ...

Javier Milei

A Libertarian President!

Argentina actually elected a libertarian president. Javier Milei campaigned with a chainsaw, promising to cut the size of government. Argentina's leftists had so clogged the country's economic arteries with regulations that what once was one of the world's richest countries is now one of the ...
