Cities across the United States are experiencing rising crime rates, homelessness, and public disorder, alongside deteriorating infrastructure and a decline in the quality of public services like policing, sanitation, transportation management, and the resolution of abandoned properties. Major cities have been losing population for a decade or more, and now even the suburbs of those urban areas are losing people to more effectively managed cities in better governed states.

Silicon Valley Bank Was a Woke Bank, and it Was Wokeness That Brought it Down

 The other day, Heartland Vice President Jim Lakely was a guest on The Mark Reardon Show on 97.1 FM Talk in St. Louis. I was invited on the show to talk about the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank and how much woke politics had to do with it. That bank and our federal regulators were a lot more interested in advancing left wing political goals, such as donating to Black Lives Matter, seeking investment equity, and fighting for "climate justice" -- whatever that is -- than it was hiring a risk assessment officer. Silicon Valley Bank had a Diversity Equity and Inclusion executive, but not ..read more

by The Heartland Institute
1y ago
Larry Correia's book, "In Defense of the 2nd Amendment," provides a powerful and accessible explanation of the positive role firearms play in our lives. It explains why good guys with guns are a critical layer of defense and why the 2nd Amendment was adopted. The book argues that you are your own first line of defense in critical situations and that firearms make this defense possible. Correia explains that those who want to ban guns do not necessarily hate guns themselves.

Cities across the United States are in a persistent financial crisis because their governments are unable or unwilling to define who and what they are. In fact, many cities’ finances are so poor that they’re going bankrupt. The fundamental problem is that city governments attempt a scope of service provision that is impossible to deliver on. Policy Analyst Mark Moses, author of The Municipal Financial Crisis: A Framework for Understanding and Fixing Government Budgeting, joins the Budget & Tax News podcast to discuss this problem.   More from Mark Moses:   Website: https://munifi ..read more

Biden and Congressional Democrats are taking advantage of the pain that Americans are feeling due to inflation their own progressive policies created. They truly didn’t let this crisis go to waste.
