What to Know: It’s Election Day!
The TPPF Take: Democrats are panicking, and they’ve already asked the Department of Justice to intervene in Harris County elections.
“Democrats are feeling particularly concerned in Harris County, where a close race for county judge features first-term leftwing incumbent Hidalgo facing off against a strong Republican challenger in Alexandra del Moral Mealer,” says TPPF’s Chuck DeVore. “Mealer, a former U.S. Army captain and veteran of Afghanistan, has been particularly critical of Hidalgo’s record on crime as Harris County has seen a surge of homicide and assaults since Hidalgo’s election. These factors make Harris County an enticing target for Biden’s politicized federal law enforcement operation.”

Heat or Eat?
What to Know: As winter approaches and the cost to heat homes continues to rise, more and more Americans are making difficult decisions: stay warm or eat supper?
The TPPF Take: This is the result of the Biden administration’s war on fossil fuels.
“More than 20 million American households (1 in 6 American homes) are struggling to meet their home energy bills,” says TPPF’s Jason Isaac. “The collective amount owed has doubled from the end of 2019 to now. Families struggling to put food on the table may not find those mean tweets quite so distasteful now as they wistfully recall the Trump-era policies that saved the average family of four $2,500 a year.”

Disaster at the Border
What to Know: Vice President Kamala Harris’ lack of action (and accountability) at the southern U.S. border has drawn bipartisan criticism, as illegal immigration continues to break records.
The TPPF Take: The Biden Administration’s claims that the border is secure are untrue.
“The Biden Administration claims that they are creating a safer, more humane border, yet their polices have resulted in the most border crossing deaths ever documented by USBP: 856,” says TPPF’s Rodney Scott. “This does not include deceased individuals recovered by local law enforcement. Drug overdose and fentanyl poisoning deaths across America have increased dramatically while overall narcotics seizures at the border have decreased.”
