Between 2 million and 3 million Americans will die!

Deaths from COVID-19 are dropping, but we probably can't resume normal life until someone develops a vaccine. Experts say it will take at least 12 to 18 months.

Race and Riots By John Stossel

"No justice, no peace!" they shout. Then they break windows.

It makes me furious.

But then I watch the video of the Minneapolis cop kneeling on George Floyd's neck, while Floyd repeatedly says, "I can't breathe," and three other officers just watch.

You'll Freeze in the Dark! By John Stossel

This year's pandemic got regulators to say they'll speed the approval process. The FDA adopted Emergency Use Authorization to speed up approval of some tests, medical equipment and ventilators.

China's Tech Totalitarianism John Stossel

The media tell us China "beat coronavirus."

I don't believe it. The Chinese government lies. AEI's Derrek Scissors argues that they've underreported the number of COVID-19 cases by millions.
