We need an independent commission to investigate the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. We need honest fact-finding & true accountability, not whitewashing & hand slapping, to discourage future administrations from making such fatal decisions. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3uwiZGs
We need an independent commission to examine the fatal decisions that led to the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster. It must go wherever the facts lead, regardless of who they implicate or embarrass, and exclude current members of Congress. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3uwiZGs
.@POTUS and others must be held accountable for the lives lost, for abandoning Americans, for leaving behind billions in US military equipment for the enemy, and for the fact that we are less safe now than when the war began. @WashTimesOpEd 2/2 bit.ly/3uwiZGs
We can never again let happen the grossly incompetent and politically driven decision-making that led to the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. We need an independent investigative commission. 1/2
From the Berlin Airlift, its first global mission as its own military branch, to the incredible work its amazing men & women do around the globe to keep Americans safe, the U.S. Air Force continues to make America proud. Happy 74th Birthday, @usairforce!
234 years ago today, America adopted what endures as the world’s oldest written constitution. However, it’s not the written words, but the fidelity of the American people, that gives the Constitution its strength. In honoring it, we protect our own freedoms. #ConstitutionDay
Heritage’s Center for Tech Policy continues to recommend legislative solutions to ensure Big Tech is held accountable when they unfairly suppress speech, especially speech that encourages healthy debate on critical issues America faces. 3/3 heritage.org/press/heritage…
If Amazon followed its own absurd standard, one of the world’s largest booksellers wouldn’t even allow ads for the biggest bestseller in history—the Bible!   We pushed back publicly, and Amazon reversed its decision. 2/3
Amazon said @Heritage couldn’t advertise our researcher’s bestselling exposé on the BLM organization and its Marxist agenda because ads based on “controversial or highly debated social topics [are] not permitted”! @Gundisalvus 1/3
Congratulations to @Heritage friends @AmityShlaes, @MZHemingway, @rogerrream – this year’s very deserving winners of the coveted Bradley Prizes! Their achievements reflect the @BradleyFdn’s mission to strengthen & protect the principles & institutions of American exceptionalism.
Instead of presenting a coherent strategy, President Biden has introduced counterproductive and divisive rhetoric and policies based on fear and control. See my full statement… (3/3) heritage.org/press/heritage…
Our leaders have issued conflicting messages and changed their advice on COVID when there was no change in the science. Instead of vaccine mandates, they should focus on providing more clear and timely data so Americans can make informed decisions with their doctors. (2/3)
President Biden’s proposed COVID-19 vaccine mandates are unacceptable and must be rejected. @Heritage will exercise the options available to us to challenge this government power grab and protect the rights and freedoms of our employees. (1/3)
New territory, new U.S. weaponry, and American hostages have made the Taliban stronger. Thanks to an inept pullout strategy, Afghanistan is a new hub for terrorism and more of a threat than it was on Sept. 11, 2001. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3hgXOmd
20 years after 9/11, we remember the 3000 who died that day & those who kept terror at bay & America free ever since. Let’s stand unified against those who would divide & destroy us & show the world that America may bend, but we’ll never, ever break. herit.ag/2X5pLGn
Because of Biden’s bungled evacuation, on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the Taliban controls more territory than it did in 2001, is better armed with billions in U.S. military equipment, and now has hundreds of American hostages. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3hgXOmd
As we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we honor the hundreds of thousands who stood up to defend our liberty, our values, and our way of life. Their heroism kept terror at bay & America free. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3hgXOmd
To our Jewish friends, Shanah tovah! May you have a good and sweet new year!
Fmr. Afghanistan ambassador to the U.S. @RoyaRahmani tells @Heritage what can be done to protect Afghan women & girls. With the Taliban in charge, they will be forbidden schooling & careers, face abuse, & many will be sold into sexual slavery. heritage.org/middle-east/ev…
We must honor those US service members who lost their lives today while also committing ourselves to the mission for which they gave their lives: getting all Americans and our Afghan allies safely out of Afghanistan. See my full statement: heritage.org/press/heritage…
I signed a letter warning Pres. Biden’s court-packing commission that packing the court threatens the liberty of every American. It turns the Supreme Court into a rubber stamp of the president instead of a vital check on his power. Sign the letter at SupremeCoup.com/Sign.
Afghanistan didn’t have to end this way. Because of Biden’s disastrous pullout-without-a-plan, the Taliban will control more of Afghanistan than it did 20 years ago before the U.S. invaded. @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/aug/…
Fact-checkers are supposed to be neutral & stick to the facts. @PolitiFact fails this basic test and is more political than fact. That’s why I joined the Free Speech Alliance and other conservative leaders to ask that it be dropped from the International Fact-Checking Network. twitter.com/theMRC/status/…
Afghanistan didn’t have to end this way. The Taliban now has billions in American military equipment, it’s freeing ISIS terrorists from Afghan prisons, & terrorists have the entire country as a base for planning attacks against the U.S. @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/aug/…
Afghanistan didn’t have to end this way. The Taliban is forcing millions of women & girls into a new era of repression and physical & sexual abuse. 13-year-old girls are being torn from their families & forced into sexual slavery. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3msNBq6
The $1.1 trillion Senate infrastructure bill grows the federal gov’t, wastes billions of taxpayer dollars on things that aren't federal responsibilities, & promotes causes like climate change & taxpayer subsidies for green energy companies. @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/aug/…
Happy birthday to my dear friend and predecessor, @EdFeulner, founder and past president of @Heritage and a man who has devoted his career to advancing conservative solutions for the benefit of every American and for people throughout the world!
The new taxes to fund the Senate’s $1.1 trillion infrastructure bill & the $3.5 trillion budget bill that “must” be passed with it would cripple the American economy, increase costs for American families, & chase jobs out of the country. @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/aug/…
The senators who just passed a $1.1 trillion federal infrastructure bill are selling it as a reasonable, centrist compromise. It’s neither reasonable nor centrist. @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/aug/…
More than a dozen community leaders from across America, colleagues, and program beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to Woodson over the course of the evening. dailysign.al/3jd8cf5

Purple Heart Day honors the more than 1.8 million Americans wounded or killed by enemy action during military service. We owe these heroes an enormous debt for their selfless sacrifices. Created by George Washington, the Purple Heart is America’s oldest military decoration.
Congratulations to the U.S. Coast Guard on its 231st Birthday! Since 1790, just like its motto, “Semper Paratus,” the Coast Guard has remained “always ready” to protect the United States. Thanks to Coasties past and present for your service and patriotism!
“Outside the @RNC, we have Black women leading conservative organizations like the Honorable @KayColesJames, president of @Heritage... and @StarParker, founder of @CUREpolicy.” - Donna M. Owens for @Essence. buff.ly/3llRNaC

Congratulations to my good friend and civil rights veteran @BobWoodson, founder and president of the @WoodsonCenter, on his retirement and his four decades of helping grassroots leaders in troubled neighborhoods increase safety, spur upward mobility, and inspire racial harmony! twitter.com/WoodsonCenter/…
The U.S. must counter China’s authoritarian communist influence in Africa & promote liberty & economic freedom. It would help the people of Africa, & more democratically led nations would create a more stable & prosperous world for all. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3rDkMI2
China has worked to convince some African nations that authoritarianism is superior to liberty & economic freedom, yet freedom & free markets are the proven antidotes to the oppression and poverty that plague certain African nations today. @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jul/…
Communist China’s stronghold on many African nations poses serious national security and economic problems for the American people and human rights issues for many Africans. Our leaders must take more notice. @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3rDkMI2
“The Heritage family was saddened to hear of the death of Sen. Mike Enzi. He was a principled conservative who believed in holding firm to his principles while finding common ground.“ @KayColesJames herit.ag/3iMHqtG
Retweeted by Kay C. James
Sad to hear of the death of Sen. Mike Enzi, a principled conservative whose sage advice should be remembered in these polarized times: “Often the best way to get something everyone can agree on is to leave out the things you don’t agree on and focus on what you can get done.”
The left is literally trying to stop states from removing dead people from voter rolls, preventing noncitizens from registering to vote, & requiring an ID to vote—which polling shows most Americans, including Black Americans, agree with! @WashTimesOpEd washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jul/…
Former VP and @Heritage fellow @Mike_Pence addressed Heritage and foreign diplomats on why China is America’s greatest foreign policy challenge of the 21st century. Watch the B.C. Lee Lecture, our signature event on U.S. policy in the Indo-Pacific, here: youtube.com/watch?v=5RxUkO…
I worked with Dems like Jimmy Carter & Repubs on the Commission on Federal Election Reform. In 2005, both sides agreed that things like voter ID & verifying that only citizens voted were commonsense reforms. Yet now Dems call them racist? @WashTimesOpEd bit.ly/3xId9Tb
.@Mike_Pence talks about China as America’s greatest foreign policy challenge of the 21st century. Join the VP and @Heritage online July 14 at 1 p.m. ET for the B.C. Lee Lecture, Heritage's signature event on U.S. policy in the Indo-Pacific. herit.ag/3eb5FQU
The dangers of woke capitalism, cancel culture, and the federal takeover of elections are just some of the big issues that @SenatorLankford and I talked about on his “Breakdown” podcast… youtube.com/watch?v=4Hzvbe…
This is a day to proudly celebrate history’s greatest experiment in representative democracy, to honor all those who have fought and died for it, and to thank our Lord that we live in freest, most prosperous land of opportunity the world has ever known. Happy Independence Day!
The left named the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act after the civil rights leader but is using it to destroy one of our most sacred rights. They are removing critical election safeguards and diluting all Americans’—Black, white, or purple—right to vote.
In an age of cancel culture—where anyone who expresses views challenging far-left ideas also risks losing his job, expulsion from school, and even death threats—this opinion is a victory for freedom and a rebuke to the woke mob. My statement: herit.ag/3jwhqof
Freedom of association protects Americans’ right to meet in private to exchange ideas without fear of retribution or intimidation. 2/3
The Supreme Court handed down a victory for the First Amendment and the freedom of association by striking down a California policy that forced nonprofits to disclose their donors’ names and private information. 1/3
With the death of Donald Rumsfeld, @Heritage has lost a great friend and ally in the cause of protecting America, and our nation has lost one of her staunchest defenders. Our hearts and our prayers are with his wife, Joyce, and their children. herit.ag/3y7uDIk
