My favorite annual publication from the Heritage Foundation, the Index of Economic Freedom, has just been released.

It’s no secret how many Democrats in Washington openly condemn private, for-profit and non-profit colleges and universities that offer students specific, career focused degrees. Many Democrats in Congress work feverishly to shut these schools down, and they will only be happy with the education version of Obamacare, where they sit as gatekeepers of higher education. In their perfect world, all students would learn and study under the thumb of liberal education activists and their far-left policies. When Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump, cries of anguish were loudest...

It's horrifying that we are rapidly approaching the kind of culture that God ordered the Israelites to wipe out when he finally allowed them to enter the land he had promised them — a culture of rampant immorality, idolatry and child sacrifice.

Many on the libertine-left media are aggressively, and quite publicly, demanding that parents abide by their worldview or be ostracized from polite company.

Are U.S. troops necessary over there — to prevent terrorists from coming over here? Or are they over here — because we are over there?

Just 27 days ago, Nancy Pelosi claimed the Speaker's gavel and promised that her House would be "bipartisan and unifying." What have we seen since? House Democrats are pushing to open the floodgates of millions of taxpayer dollars to pay for elective abortions – even as Speaker Pelosi insists that she can't offer more than a dollar to build a border wall. And then yesterday, Democrats on the Natural Resources Committee announced they would remove "so help you God" from the oath that is administered to witnesses who testify before the committee. So under the...

Our colleague David North has reported the good news that three countries have been booted from the annual list of countries whose citizens are eligible to participate in the H-2 guestworker visa programs, due to high overstay rates. But the list still includes many other countries with high rates of non-compliance and overstays that should disqualify them, or at least result in some kind of probationary status or require enhanced screening. The number of participating countries now stands at 80, which is slightly down from the peak of 85 in 2017, but still much higher than 2008, when...

Last week, my first-grade daughter, Astrid, heard me mention abortion in conversation with my wife and asked me what it meant. It took no time for me to reply: “Abortion is when they kill a baby before it’s born, when it’s still inside its mommy.” Astrid’s eyes grew wide as she processed this horrible new feature of her world. She has seen her mommy pregnant twice, and those pregnancies ended in two little brothers. It’s strange to think that on Thursday morning, my little girl woke up not knowing that many like her brothers (and her) are legally killed...

Everyone loves babies, don't they? Kamala Harris says she does, but in reality she does not.

Political showboating abounded on the Hill amid a government shutdown with the confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee William Barr. Despite having served in the same position from 1991-1993 under President George H.W. Bush, Barr finds himself subject to left-field questions from the fringes. A particular line of questioning from Senator Kamala Harris stood out as she requested that Barr pledge to end the use of private prisons based on an Obama-era Department of Justice report that Barr had not yet read.
