Hans von Spakovsky: DOJ’s Partisan Shell Game Raises Ethics Issues About Pamela Karlan

As a tenured law professor at Stanford University, Pamela Karlan earned $1 million a year. We now know that she stayed on the Stanford payroll, at that same impressive salary, during the entire 17 months she served as the Justice Department’s principal deputy assistant attorney general for civil rights. Ms. Karlan left her DOJ post on July 1, just one day before the department delivered documents to the American Accountability Foundation under a Freedom of Information Act request that revealed her unorthodox and ethically suspect arrangement with the Biden administration.

Allen West: The Modern Enslavement of The Black Community in America

As we draw close to the pivotal 2022 midterm election in November, many are discussing the electoral trend of the Hispanic community away from the Democrat, progressive socialist party. When I was Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, I assessed that the reason why the Rio Grande Valley was blue was because we had not engaged with them. I remember being in Del Rio, Texas, at a Hispanic church for a showing of the documentary "Uncle Tom." There were those who asked, “Why show a documentary about black conservatism in the RGV?” The answer was simple--to show the Hispanic community what the Democrat Party had done to the Black community and let them know that if not careful, the same would happen to the Hispanic community.

Hans von Spakovsky: Latest Election Fraud Cases Underscore Importance of Election Integrity

With the latest cases of impersonation, registration fraud, absentee ballot fraud, bribery, and illegal vote trafficking added to The Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database, the database now contains 1,365 proven instances of election fraud. These cases demonstrate the wide variety of ways in which bad actors set out to submit fraudulent ballots or steal elections.The database is not an exhaustive or comprehensive list of all election fraud in the states. Rather, it presents a sampling of recent, proven instances of election fraud from across the country that is intended to highlight the many ways in which fraud has been committed.

Hans von Spakovsky: Ensuring That Only US Citizens Vote

The latest politically motivated lawsuit—filed against Arizona by the Biden Justice Department over the state’s new law attempting to verify the citizenship of registered voters—demonstrates the importance of a bill just introduced by Rep. Gary Palmer, R-Ala., HR 8223, that would stop that lawsuit in its tracks.

Allen West: The Deranged Liberal World Order

"What you heard from the president today is a clear articulation of the stakes. This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm." - Biden administration National Economic Council Director, Brian Deese This quote came during an interview on CNN with Mr. Deese after President Biden responded that the American people would have to endure the exorbitantly high fuel prices as long as the conflagration in Ukraine continues. In essence, what Brian Deese was expressing is what we would say in military vernacular, "embrace the suck." And the “suck” is the liberal world order, better known as the progressive socialist Marxist ideological agenda.

Allen West: Yes, There Is an Invasion on Our Southern Border

There are two definitions of the word invasion. The first is "an instance of invading a country or region with an armed force.” That is happening in Ukraine. The second definition of an invasion is "an incursion of a large number of people or things into a place of sphere of activity." That is happening here in America. It seems unbelievable that so many are asking for legal opinions and articulations of something so very simple.

Hans von Spakovsky: Election audits should be required in every state after every election

Financial audits are standard practice in the business world. Election audits also should be standard practice in every state after every election. Audits would determine whether the election was administered honestly, fairly, accurately and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Yet audits of election agencies, procedures and systems are almost nonexistent in America. The very concept of comprehensive election audits has been criticized and opposed by some election officials and even by the current U.S. Department of Justice.

Allen West: Protecting Democracy From the Democrats

Let me first begin by stating that America is not a democracy; it is a constitutional republic. Matter of fact, in Article IV, Section 4 of our Constitution, known as the "Guarantee Clause," the federal government is supposed to guarantee to every State in the Union a "Republican form of government." Now, that does not mean a Republican party, but rather the form of governance associated with that of a Republic. As you recall, Benjamin Franklin when asked what form of government the founders created, replied "a republic, if you can keep it."

Hans von Spakovsky: Thomas Fires Warning Shot at Media, Organizations That Lie About Conservatives

If you are a private figure and The New York Times or the Southern Poverty Law Center publishes a lie about you, you simply have to prove that the statement was false and harmed your reputation. The fact that the publisher didn’t know or care that the statement was false is irrelevant. But if you are a “public figure,” you not only have to prove that the statement was false and harmed your reputation, but that the statement was made “with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not.” And the definition of who is a public figure constantly has expanded since 1964.

Hans von Spakovsky: This Supreme Court Ruling Will Prove Vital to Defending Voter ID

The Supreme Court’s important ruling last week on voter ID in North Carolina has been overlooked in the fervor over the high court’s spot-on decisions upholding the Second Amendment and religious freedom and overruling Roe v. Wade. But the court’s procedural decision Thursday in Berger v. NAACP will help prevent state officials from sabotaging the defense of state election laws and other measures being attacked by their political allies and friends.
