With pro-life policies being wiped off the books, this administration could cost hundreds of thousands of preborn children their lives in the coming years of the Biden presidency. Along with them, countless women will be left living in deep regret. https://buff.ly/3xoHTbs
Maybe you are like me and are tired of hearing all the rhetoric of why this country is so messed up. Maybe you are young and not so sure what makes it all that great? As Andrew McIndoe in his email to me explained, the best place to start is with the truth about our founding documents:
One of the things I also keep nearby is a copy of our founding documents like the Declaration of Independence. Every time I catch a glance of it or take time to open it up, it leads to good reflection on the timeless ideals we’re fighting to preserve.
If you’re looking for something to listen to while you relax or run some errands this weekend, I’d recommend this great Heritage Explains podcast with one of our visiting fellows, Dr. Allen Guelzo. In this episode, he explains why the Declaration is such a beautiful document that’s still relevant in today’s culture.
Let me know what you think of Dr. Guelzo’s message. What’s your favorite part of our founding documents? What do you think people can stand to learn from them today?
Tapping Trump to run again in 2024 may seem sensible, but Trump’s downward political trajectory looks eerily like William Jennings Bryan’s.

William Jennings Bryan gave one of the most important speeches in American political development 125 years ago today — on July 9, 1896. The Nebraskan’s “Cross of Gold Speech” is a watershed moment in American history…
Now that America’s crime wave is coming home to roost, the Left is pumping out ridiculous excuses faster than you can say “defund the police.” It’s Republicans’ fault, the White House insists! It’s the cops’ fault, the media says! Or, it’s no one’s fault — the violence isn’t real! But the people’s choice award had to go to MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who compared the whole crisis to Shark Week. Because apparently, homicide and summer go together like Jaws and Richard Dreyfus…
I am not an attorney so I have no clue how SCOTUS decides which cases it will hear and which ones it will turn away. One would have thought this case was a clear-cut violation of the owner’s rights. Maybe they deemed they had already settled the argument in MASTERPIECE CAKESHOP, LTD., ET AL. v. COLORADO CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION ET AL. But we all know the state of Colorado is still going after Mr. Phillips.
This is an excellent article on the matter.
On Friday, in an act of what can only be described as dereliction, the Supreme Court of the United States refused to hear the case of Arlene’s Flowers, Inc. vs. Washington. In refusing to hear this case, the Court has failed to bring clarity to a situation it ultimately created.
What’s wrong with good old-fashioned “God and Country” patriotism and referencing the Good Book? Apparently, it’s so offensive some won’t stand for it…
Public education in America has all-too-often become a tool of those who wish to produce anti-citizens: those who wish to tear down the systems in the name of some higher or lower purpose. No society can survive this in the long term…
“We oppose attempts to ban critical race theory and/or The 1619 Project,” the National Education Association (NEA) said in a resolution late last week. At its 2021 annual meeting, America’s largest teachers’ union — and largest union of any kind — passed a slew of pro-CRT resolutions. They also approved “an already-created, in-depth study that critiques white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy … capitalism … and other forms of power and oppression.” The resolutions amounted to a declaration of war on parent organizations that have sprouted up as sentinels against encroaching wokeness…

Think of him, President Biden, what you may, this is not another “popularity poll” like those taken while President Trump was in office. This one clearly shows the nation giving a vote of no confidence. I wonder how it plays out on the international scene? I am sure China and other rivals are drooling.
Most Americans have doubts about whether President Joe Biden is really running the country, according to a new poll. Breitbart reports the Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action survey asked likely voters if they believe Biden “is fully executing the duties of his office.” According to the poll, 57 percent said they believe “others are directing policy and agenda” in the White […]

Homelessness is one of the most vexing public policy problems we face. If you live in a big city, especially on the West Coast, you literally face it every day. And every day, it seems to get worse. Why? And what can we do about it? Christopher Rufo, a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, has answers.
The greatest enemy of freedom can be freedom.
One of the most important observations that I gleaned from one of Os Guinness’s books is that celebrating the acquisition of liberty and freedom (what we celebrate this weekend is our acquisition of freedom) is typical in the world’s history. But what is really unusual is sustaining freedom…
