Mickey Edwards will speak at Heritage on March 27 about his new book, “Reclaiming Conservatism: How a Great American Political Movement Got Lost — And How It Can Find Its Way Back.” Edwards says conservatives today have abandoned the principles of individual liberty and limited government.
Hans von Spakovsky, a former member of the Federal Elections Commission and counsel for civil rights at the Justice Department, shines the spotlight on vote fraud with his analysis of voter impersonation in Brooklyn between 1968-82 and elections for Congress and the New York Senate and Assembly.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments tomorrow on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Conservatives, including a majority of lawmakers in Congress, support the constitutional right of the residents of the District of Columbia to own a firearm in the home for personal protection.
