Hiring Boom 


What to know: The Biden administration has engendered a hiring boom—for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and environmental, social and governance (ESG) officers.


The TPPF take: The DEI and ESG movements are all about power.


“ESG investing, which could be a useful tool for individuals to make informed choices about their investments, has instead become a wrecking ball that could destroy entire industries,” says TPPF’s Jason Isaac. “The un-American agenda of the climate cartel is an affront to the principles of liberty that founded our country.”

Maybe Read Them First


What to know: Former President Barack Obama is getting some criticism for his letter to librarians in defense of “banned books,” which include sexually explicit titles being offered to young children.


The TPPF take: Parents must remain vigilant on school library materials.


“I have discovered over 100 sexually explicit and age-inappropriate books in every secondary school library of Belton ISD,” writes mom Hillary Hickland for The Cannon Online. “These books contain narratives and graphics that normalize child sexual abuse, sexual assault, incest, drug abuse and suicide. Imagine an 11-year-old choosing this book and being exposed to these harsh and heavy concepts that are difficult for adults to process.”

Big Cities, Big Budgets


What to know: It’s municipal budget season, and cities throughout Texas are setting their budgets and tax rates. Unsurprisingly, big cities are spending big.


The TPPF take: Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin—all the usual suspects—have violated the number one rule of balanced budgeting: balance.


“Across these cities, the average debt per person amounts to roughly $10,225,” says TPPF’s James Quintero. “Budgeting 101: don’t spend more than you can afford to pay. Cities, take notes please. Bills have a strange habit of coming due.”
