COMMENTARY AND OP-EDS
The Politics of Confrontation
As I have often stated, conservatives bring a plastic spoon to a gunfight. -- Allen West
A Primer on Ballots
We need to realize that the initiative to implement these unsolicited mail-in ballots is a plot of the left. We must develop strategies to block their efforts.
The National Security Policy of Barney Fife
We all still laugh at the reruns of "The Andy Griffith Show," but to think that it mirrors the strategy of the Biden administration is quite terrifying.
Von Spakovsky: Impeaching Mayorkas Is a Must, He Violated His Oath and Committed “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”
Mayorkas has violated his oath of office by repeatedly violating the laws he swore faithfully to enforce. He has abused the powers of his office through reckless conduct that threatens the sovereignty of the U.S. and risks the safety and security of the American people and the law enforcement personnel of the Department of Homeland Security. And he has betrayed the public trust by repeatedly making false statements to Congress and misleading the public about the nature and effects of his misconduct.

Von Spakovsky: Another Study Refutes Left’s False Claims Against Secure Elections
Trust the science, we’ve all been told. Well, the science has spoken again: Voter ID laws aren’t discriminatory and don’t suppress anyone’s vote.
Von Spakovsky: ‘Conservatives Need Not Apply’ Under Proposed Team Biden Hiring Rules
In a move that has gotten little notice in the press, the Biden administration is proposing federal hiring rules that easily could be abused to deny employment to anyone who questions liberal, woke policies, criticizes the government, or belongs to a politically incorrect organization.
Regular Americans Understand Economics Better Than Politicians
Why do we allow the insane to run the economic asylum and, in turn, usurp more of our resources?
A Delusional Address for a Distressed State
It was interesting to read the reports on the SOTU speech from both political perspectives. One side addressed the false statements that were made about our economy. The other side lauded the speech and, instead of questioning the ranting and yelling, applauded it as a display of vigor and energy. It put me in remembrance of something my dad used to say, "Boy, an empty wagon makes a lot of noise."
Von Spakovsky: White House “Cleansing” of El Paso Akin to 1936 Berlin Olympics
Some have compared the cleansing in El Paso, Texas, before President Biden’s border visit to the fake villages that Grigory Potemkin is said to have set up along a route traveled by Catherine the Great. Those fake villages were intended to fool Catherine by hiding the truly horrible conditions. The more apt comparison is to the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, which, like what happened in El Paso with the full knowledge of the president and his advisers, was designed to fool the public.
Von Spakovsky: Georgia Voters Show Just How Wrong Biden and His Sycophants Are
Here is the question: When will President Joe Biden, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert Manfred, and other denizens of the Left apologize to Georgia’s legislators, governor, and other residents? The answer is probably “Never,” despite the latest evidence of just how wrong they’ve been about Georgia’s commonsense election reforms in their outrageous claims about the state.
Von Spakovsky: Apportionment and the Census: Fundamental Fairness to U.S. Citizens and Democratic Process
Americans just voted for their representatives in the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm election, and two years ago, they completed census forms. Both of those activities are the direct result of Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution—the census clause—which directs that an “actual Enumeration” be conducted every “ten Years” of our population “in such Manner as [Congress] shall by Law direct.”
Von Spakovsky: Election Fraud Database Tops 1,400 Cases
The Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database now includes 1,412 proven instances of election fraud, and our legal center is monitoring many other ongoing prosecutions. The database, which provides a sampling of recent election fraud cases, demonstrates the vulnerabilities within the electoral process and the need for reforms to secure free and fair elections for the American people.
Ken Blackwell: School choice is the only solution to what’s wrong with public schools
Public school administrators wield a great deal of power over our children’s lives − too much power. The only solution is school choice. A recent undercover investigation in Ohio by the watchdog group Accuracy in Media underscores the troubling arrogance of administrators who think they know best what values and lessons children should be taught − better than the elected officials who set curriculum guidelines, and better even than those children’s parents.
China: America’s Top Geo-Political Foe
It does not take an expert on China to see what is happening, just some common sense and guts . . . both lacking in this current, and compromised, Biden administration.
The Contributing Factor to Lawlessness
The greatest contributing factor to the lawlessness we now see is a lack of courage.
What is the Law?
We live in a constitutional republic, not a constitutional monarchy. We abide by the Law, which exists to protect our rights, freedoms, and liberties. We are not bound to obey, or be ruled by, edicts, orders, mandates, decrees, and rules which reflect more ideology than constitutionality.
The Treasonous Undermining of American Energy Independence
The degradation of our ability to produce, consume, and be a net exporter of oil and gas resources is detrimental to the future of America.
National Stalking Awareness Month: The Story of Nikki Goeser
