What to know: Tarrant County has formed an election fraud task force. It’s one of the very few in the state.
The TPPF take: Crimes, such as election fraud, that don’t get prosecuted don’t get obeyed.
“About half of the cars outside my house clearly travel far faster than the posted 25 mph speed limit,” says TPPF’s Chuck DeVore. “But since there’s never been a speeding ticket issued, there’s clearly no speeding problem in my neighborhood. The same principle is at work when it comes to election fraud. Very little in the way of law enforcement assets has been dedicated to punishing election crimes in Texas, and you generally don’t find what you don’t look for.”

What to know: Even climate activists are now wondering if they’ve gone too far in pushing eco-anxiety.
The TPPF take: Abundant and affordable energy lead to a cleaner environment.
“If anything, energy’s role in improving the state of the world should provide younger generations with hope for the future,” says TPPF’s Brent Bennett. “The media and our leaders need to stop fear mongering, and instead showcase the endless opportunities that energy provides. Energy is freedom, independence, power, control, and national security– all things that ensure self-sustenance and reliability.”

What to know: The Biden administration says that border crossings are down 50% since Title 42 restrictions were lifted last week
The TPPF take: This same administration also claimed—similarly without evidence—that illegal immigration is down 90% since President Biden took office.
“For migrants sleeping in shelter and tents on the Mexico side of the border, the politics are irrelevant,” says TPPF’s Roy Maynard. “Title 42, Title 8 and other measures to limit the inflow of illegal immigrants can’t drown out the real messaging of the Biden administration: The U.S. border is wide open.”
