The War on Voting Rights Heats Up

President Biden is urging all Americans to support the Democrats’ new voting rights package before Congress, including the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. These measures are critical to counter the flood of voting suppression laws enacted by Republicans in 19 states this past year. One such law even...

Governor Newsom Turns the Tables

As we discussed in the December 2021 Publisher’s Statement, our ultraconservative Supreme Court recently upheld the draconian Texas law that outlaws most abortions after a “fetal heartbeat” is detected (at about six weeks). The law allows private citizens with no legal standing—meaning no personal interests involved—to sue any doctor or individual who participates in...

Another “Go Slow” at Glasgow

The latest attempt to do something serious about climate change at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow was a mixed success. Some progress was made, including nearly 200 countries adopting the Glasgow Climate Pact, but given the increasingly dire nature of the problem, it wasn’t nearly enough. On the positive side,...

The Terrible Waste of Cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies are all the rage now, with investors large and small around the world playing the game. Some have made fortunes. The foresight to buy ten Bitcoins in 2009, when they were selling for $1 each, would yield the tidy sum of approximately $600,000 today. There are currently hundreds of...

The Worst Abortion Law Yet

Texas recently trumped other red states in the race to pass the most restrictive abortion law in the country. It’s a “fetal heartbeat” law, meaning that as soon as an ultrasound can detect cardiac activity in a human embryo (not yet a fetus), usually at around six weeks, it is illegal to abort in...

Biden Was Right on Afghanistan

Numerous politicians and pundits have loudly criticized the President’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. But even after seeing all of the chaotic scenes from Kabul, over 60% of Americans approve of the withdrawal and say the war was not worth the costs. After 20 stormy years of marriage, it was a messy divorce,...

A Civilian Climate Corps? Yes!

Progressive Democrats in Congress are pushing to include funding for a new Civilian Climate Corps (CCC) in the infrastructure bill being thrashed out by Congress as I write. A CCC could create 1.5 million new jobs over the next five years for people still suffering from unemployment and underemployment due to the COVID pandemic,...

It’s Time to Tackle the Tax Dodgers

The massive tax giveaway passed by the previous Republican Administration has turned out to be an even bigger gift to the ultrarich than expected. That bill lowered the corporate tax rate from 35% to a paltry 21%. Part of the argument for such a drastic reduction was that loopholes for tax evasion would be...

Fight for Your Rights!

Since Donald Trump lost the Presidential election—and America enjoyed its largest turnout of eligible voters in more than a century—Republicans have launched a nationwide campaign to suppress the vote. According to the Brennan Center for Justice, at least 389 new laws have been proposed in 48 states to limit mail-in voting, early in-person voting...

The Chauvin Verdict: A Milestone

When former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted in April for murdering George Floyd, it was a huge sea change in the “qualified immunity” usually granted cops in such trials. Witnesses for the prosecution included an unprecedented lineup of police officers, including the Minneapolis police chief. And though Chauvin wasn’t the first cop...

HUSTLER Will Carry On!

Our founder, guiding light and my dear husband Larry Flynt left us on February 10th. Larry could have taken it easy in his later years and enjoyed a well-earned retirement. Instead, he was at work every single day, helming his myriad HUSTLER businesses and making decisions for the magazine. He relished the work, the...

The First Publisher’s Statement by Larry Flynt in 1974

Originally published July 1974 Anyone can be a playboy and have a penthouse, but it takes a man to be a Hustler. With this philosophy in mind, we are launching the most sophisticated men’s magazine of the century. Some of you are already aware of our successful chain of night clubs located in most...

Reconciliation for a Suffering Country

Editor’s note: On February 10, 2021, our fearless leader, Larry C. Flynt, passed away, as this edition was going to press. Below is his last Publisher’s Statement. We are already feeling the loss deeply, and our June 2021 HUSTLER will be a special commemorative issue, available May 11. It seems to be the inevitable...

The Man of the Hour

It’s no secret that Joe Biden was not my favorite Democratic candidate for President. I’ve criticized his long history of coddling the Republicans and his gung ho support for the Iraq War. But if you’re looking for saints of unblemished purity, you won’t find them in the political arena. I don’t care who your...

The System Is Rigged, All Right—for Republicans

For years now, Donald Trump has been whining about how the system is rigged against him—despite winning the White House in 2016 while losing the popular vote. George W. Bush won in 2000, even though he also lost the popular vote. You would think that in a democracy the majority of voters would elect...
