–Commentary by Ying Ma
I’m a woman, a racial minority, and an immigrant, and I grew up in inner-city America. I have two university degrees, one from Cornell University and another from Stanford Law School. I have worked for some of the most elite institutions in America, including a foreign policy organization that counts Chelsea and Bill Clinton among its members.

–Commentary by Ying Ma
In the aftermath of the horrific mass shooting in Orlando, President Barack Obama, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and House Speaker Paul Ryan found themselves united in outrage. Unequivocally, they issued their condemnations: “Dangerous,” “shameful,” and “pathological.”
Their target, however, was not the radical Islamic ideology that inspired the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. No, the politicians were referring to GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald J. Trump and his proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States. It was yet another example of elevating self-righteousness over reality and delusions over solutions.

Ying Ma addressed the Conservative Women’s Network in a speech titled “Prevailing Over the Welfare State.” She shared her personal story of prevailing over the poverty, lawlessness and general dysfunction of inner-city Oakland, California. She drew distinct contrasts between the “welfare state” approach to addressing poverty versus an approach based on hard work, individual responsibility and educational achievement.
In the speech, Ms. Ma also said “No, thank you” to “bossy liberal women” who reguarly claim to speak for all women.
The Conservative Women’s Network is made up of over 1,000 women in the Washington, DC, area who are policy analysts, stay-at-home mothers, students, organization presidents and more. Its monthly luncheons take place at the Heritage Foundation and are co-hosted by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.
