The Girl Scouts Don’t Actually Support Women Anymore

The Girl Scouts of America used its Twitter account this week to tweet out congratulations to Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the first woman with school-age children to be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Shut Down D.C. Targets Conservative Organizations as ‘Trump Boosters’

Shut Down D.C., a progressive group that says it uses “strategic direct action to advance justice and hold officials accountable,” is targeting at least 27 conservative organizations in the Washington metro area as Election Day approaches. An interactive map from Shut Down D.C. lists as “Trump boosters” a range of organizations, including The Heritage Foundation, the parent organization […]

Border Chief Morgan Is Criticized for—Wait for It—Wanting to Secure Border

The federal officer responsible for overseeing the security of America’s borders has been attacked for, of all things, arguing that we should secure America’s borders. Rather than going after Mark Morgan for battling every day to keep everyday Americans free, safe, and prosperous, his critics should pay more attention to the significant accomplishments made under his tenure […]

Why Voter Fraud Is a Real Threat in Next Week’s Election

The presidential election Nov. 3 is now just days away. Is election security really at stake? Can states turn into vote-by-mail jurisdictions virtually overnight, as so many have done during the COVID-19 pandemic? Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., a member of the Committee on House Administration, joins The Daily Signal Podcast to discuss. We also cover these […]

Unmarried Birth Rates and Fatherless Households: A National Crisis

In a recent television appearance, I discussed my appointment to a presidential commission called “The Social Status of Black Men and Black Boys.” I called fatherless households America’s top domestic problem, a particularly severe phenomenon in the black community where nearly 70% of kids begin their lives in households with unmarried mothers. I then received […]

Federal Appeals Court Reminds Judges Not to Change Rules Before or During Election

The Supreme Court advises that judges should not change state and county election rules right before an election, a Cincinnati-based appeals court has reminded a lower court. The Ohio case, like others this election season, involves the use of ballot “drop boxes” and restrictions that officials may put on them while attempting to maintain the […]

Yes, a Pro-China Group in America Supports a Black Lives Matter Founder

The Daily Signal last month revealed links between the Black Lives Matter organizations and the Chinese Progressive Association of San Francisco. My piece went viral—and for good reason. It broke news that the liberal-dominated media would prefer to ignore. A writer for the online publication Axios now has launched an attack on my work. I will leave aside the […]

‘Spontaneous’ Street Violence Is Well Organized, Pursuing a Radical Agenda

Add up everything we know about the ongoing violence in America’s cities, and you get a troubling picture. It has nothing to do with law-abiding, peaceful demonstrations in favor of civil rights and police reform. No, the violence that exploits these well-intentioned activities—which often occurs after night falls and demonstrations have ended—is part of an […]

10 Counties With Most COVID-19 Deaths Account for 22% of Fatalities but 11% of Population

As Heritage Foundation researchers have demonstrated throughout the pandemic, the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. has been heavily concentrated in a small number of states—and among a small number of counties within those states. Heritage’s interactive graphic allows individuals to see more detail on these concentrations of COVID-19 among the counties with the most deaths as well as those with the fewest. For instance, […]

Twitter’s Censorship of the New York Post Is Un-American

Less than three weeks from a presidential election, perhaps the most vital platform for political news and debate, Twitter, has locked down the accounts of a presidential candidate’s press secretary and of his official campaign, among others, at the behest of activists pretending to be journalists. This is unsurprising to anyone who has been paying attention. […]
