You’re Not Imagining It

What to know: It’s true, the Department of Justice has been weaponized by the Democrats to quash any opposition to their agenda.

The TPPF take: In a two-tiered justice system, ordinary families suffer.

“That’s why Americans are so disheartened to see the two-tiered justice system that favors the politically connected, preserving the Bidens, the Clintons and others from the Dickensian workings of the criminal justice system,” says TPPF’s Brett Tolman. “We get ‘Bleak House;’ they get Martha’s Vineyard.”

Philosopher Welders

What to know: Entrepreneur and “Dirty Jobs” star Mike Rowe wants more “philosopher welders,” because college simply isn’t for everyone.

The TPPF take: We should be preparing students for life, not just college. We can do that by encouraging students to learn about and prepare for careers in the skilled trades, such as in the oil and gas industry.

“The average oil and gas job pays more than double the private-sector average, according to the U.S. Department of Energy,” says TPPF’s Erin Davis Valdez. “The oil and gas industry might not sound glamorous, but it’s a lucrative career path. Energy education is critical not just because of the noteworthy role of oil and gas in our economy — employing nearly 200,000 Texans in direct jobs alone — but because energy makes every part of our lives possible.”

No More Mandates

What to know: The Texas Senate has passed a bill that will ban private employers from imposing vaccine mandates on employees.

The TPPF take: It’s time for Texans to regain agency over their own health care.

“Throughout history, intrepid individuals have pushed back against the excesses of government, putting self aside in sacrifice for the posterity of what we all-too-often take for granted today—freedom, says TPPF’s David Dunmoyer. “And while it yet survives, the agency of Americans is under siege, with our ability to exercise our rights being curtailed daily.”
