Image of the Day: Minorities Prospered Far More Under Trump

In our latest Liberty Update, we highlight how Americans have soured on "Bidenomics" despite Biden supporters' ongoing insistence that voters trust them rather than over three years of actual, real-life experience and hardship.  Well, our friends at the Committee to Unleash Prosperity have highlighted another point that merits emphasis as minorities turn against Biden in his reelection effort.  Namely, they prospered far more under President Trump than President Biden:

181 Obama and the New Incrementalism: Thumbing His Nose at the Law

The Obama Administration’s attitude toward the American court system is reminiscent of every schoolyard bully: Heads I win; tails you lose.  From healthcare to the environment to jobs, liberal legal elites pay lip service to the rule of law while their friends in the bureaucracy race to entrench liberal policies.  Welcome to the New…

182 Utah Congressional Candidate Morgan Philpot: Pushing Back Against Federal Restrictions on Land Use

Many politicians claim to know the difference between the U.S. Constitution and “The Communist Manifesto,” but very few take the time to judge legislation by whether it moves society closer to one or the other.  Morgan Philpot is one of the latter.  As a state legislator in Utah, Philpot earned attention by holding up a copy…

183 John Lott: More Guns, Still Less Crime

“I would ask gun control advocates one question:  name a single place in the entire world where murder rates fell after gun control laws were passed.” That is the powerful challenge from economist Dr. John Lott, Jr., who was kind enough to discuss with CFIF the third edition release of his tectonic book More Guns, Less Crime. …

184 If Liberals Ban Capital Punishment, Next They’ll Target Life Imprisonment

Capital punishment’s righteous opponents often disingenuously offer the supposed “certainty” of life imprisonment without parole as a bogus alternative to execution.  On the one hand, such activists decry the “cruelty” of execution.  On their other hand, they contradict that purported humanism by assuring us…

185 "Guns Is Not the Answer" – Shoot an Armed Home Invader, Invite the Wrath of Chicago’s Mayor?

Imagine the following terrifying home invasion scenario:  You live in Chicago’s west side Garfield Park community, a neighborhood in which armed home invasions are “all too frequent,” according to news media.  It’s still dark in the pre-dawn hour of 5:20 a.m.  Few people will be awake to hear your pleas for…

186 Sarbanes-Oxley: An Unconstitutional Monument to Governmental Incompetence

Remember when Sarbanes-Oxley was supposed to prevent future market failures?  It was July 30, 2002 – not even a decade ago.  The world was witnessing a broad and unprecedented economic downturn.  Financial panic had descended in the wake of bookkeeping scandals and excessive corporate risk.  Such companies as Enron, WorldCom…

187 Gun Rights on Trial

On September 30, the Supreme Court announced that it would hear arguments in McDonald v. City of Chicago, a case challenging Chicago’s convoluted restrictions on an individual’s right to keep and bear arms.  The decision in McDonald should once and for all determine whether the Second Amendment applies equally to citizens in all states…

188 Like President, Like Nominee: Obama and Sotomayor Render Language Increasingly Meaningless

In his brief political prime, Barack Obama has already established new lows in the art of dishonesty. While mesmerizing audiences with soothing teleprompted speeches and a hypnotic cadence, the disconnect between his words and his actions is already well-established. And now, in her first week of Senate confirmation testimony, Judge Sonia Sotomayor…

189 Redefining “Conservative” Governance

Viewing the current political environment objectively, the outlook appears dim for free-market advocates. Democrats are pushing a massive new energy bill to the House floor this week that will effectively tax all carbon output in the United States and even regulate local building codes. In addition, details were released on a new health care overhaul…

"When they are sworn in on Jan. 3, 2025, the 119th Congress will likely be the most powerful in four decades. That is because the Supreme Court is expected to issue an opinion this month that rebalances the separation of powers, reining in regulatory overreach of government agencies and returning that power to the legislative branch. Is Congress ready for this?At issue is a 40-year-old legal doctrine…[more]
