  • What Russian Literature Can Teach Conservatives

    Heritage Foundation ^ | December 13, 2016 | Gary Morson
    Is life a matter of grand politics or individual souls? Can human affairs be boiled down to science or theories? Tolstoy and Chekhov believed: Life is lived at ordinary moments, and what is most real is what is barely noticeable, like the tiniest movements of consciousness. True life is not lived where great external changes take place—where people move about, clash, fight, and slay one another. It is lived only where these tiny, tiny infinitesimally small changes occur. American conservatives can learn much from the great literary output of 19th century Russia. Though seemingly distant in time and place, the...

    The New York Times ^ | January 22nd, 2018 | By JEREMY W. PETERS
    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has pursued policies that have hewed remarkably close to the recommendations of a leading conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation, which found in a new review that nearly two-thirds of its ideas had been carried out or embraced by the White House over the past year. Not one to dwell on the details of governing, President Trump has shown a considerable degree of deference to groups within the conservative movement like Heritage, leading to a rightward shift in social, environmental, immigration and foreign policy. The results, Heritage found in its review, exceeded even the first...

    One year after taking office, President Donald Trump and his administration have adopted nearly two-thirds of the policy recommendations from The Heritage Foundation’s “Mandate for Leadership.”   The “Mandate for Leadership” series includes five individual publications, totaling approximately 334 unique policy recommendations. Analysis completed by Heritage determined that 64 percent of the policy prescriptions were included in Trump’s budget, implemented through regulatory guidance, or under consideration for action in accordance with The Heritage Foundation’s original proposals. >>> View the list of all 334 policy recommendations and their status at the one-year mark   “President Trump had an extraordinarily successful first...
  • Hungarian Patriots & An Internationalist Betrayal of America

    Truth Based Logic ^ | January 15, 2018 | William Flax
    Last November, Breitbart reported that a State Department Charge' d' Affaires, David Kostelancik, had awarded $700,000 to Hungarian media hostile to their Conservative Government, in order to promote "democracy and human rights programming," ahead of next spring's Hungarian election. The obvious intent, in the arrogant intrusion, being to punish Hungarians for refusing to allow their country to be invaded by "immigrants" with no ties to traditional Hungarian values. The report detailed the logical anger, of the Hungarian Government, at Kostelancik's flagrant attempt to meddle in their internal affairs. It also described the same rogue diplomat's previously expressed attack on President...
  • Heritage Breaks Two Glass Ceilings

    Hillary Clinton was supposed to break the glass ceiling, which she said has kept a woman from becoming president, but the Heritage Foundation, a conservative public policy think tank based in Washington, D.C., has actually done it. Their new president is Kay Cole James, a female, an African-American and a conservative, who fits no one's mold. While her background is formidable -- former director of the Office of Personnel Management, Virginia secretary of Health and Human Resources, and dean of Regent University's School of Government among other accomplishments -- her vision is even more compelling. Perhaps that is because she...

    In these willfully ignorant, fiercely partisan times, let’s recall that we fought our bloodiest war to end human bondage. Almost three-quarters of a million Americans died in a complex struggle that began to right an inexcusable injustice. Now we’re re-fighting our Civil War with neo-Stalinist, fact-purging propaganda that makes cartoon villains of the dead. We rush to tear down statues of men we refuse to understand. We rob one group of citizens of their heritage to please another. And the president’s chief of staff cannot state facts about our history without triggering mob-rule outrage from those who could not even...

    Mississippi Today ^ | 5/21/2017 | Kate Royals
    A state representative from Winona who urged in a weekend Facebook post that those who support the removal of Confederate monuments be lynched has apologized. Rep. Karl Oliver, R-Winona, wrote: “The destruction of these monuments, erected in the loving memory of our family and fellow Southern Americans, is both heinous and horrific. If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, “leadership” of Louisiana wishes to, in a Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historical monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED! Let it be known, I will do all in my power to prevent this from happening in...
  • Liberal protesters must raise the bar if they expect to have any impact

    The Hill ^ | Rachel Bovard
    On a rainy Tuesday afternoon last week, the Heritage Foundation was mobbed by more than 200 liberal protestors. They stormed our lobby, chanting and banging on bucket drums, and gathered outside, holding signs and a bullhorn. They were well-organized, with facilitators in orange vests directing people where to stand, and a media team, allegedly prepared to talk to any press (though, notably, they refused to talk to our own Daily Signal). What were they protesting? It soon became clear that many of them didn’t actually know – they’d been bussed in, told they were going to “an undisclosed location.”

    Jim DeMint is being forced out as the leader of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank amid internal tensions at the organization over its direction, several sources have confirmed to Fox News. The former South Carolina Republican senator's imminent departure was first reported late last week and has since sparked widespread speculation about what led to the separation.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 30 Apr 2017 | Philip Wegmann |
    Will blistering populist Steve Bannon replace fiery conservative Sen. Jim DeMint as the next president of the Heritage Foundation? Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham won't say. Asked by Chris Wallace whether Heritage would be Bannon's "safety net as he's forced out of the White House," Needham demurred on "Fox News Sunday." "I can tell you," Needham replied, "there's a lot of speculation in the room and in the media that never misses a chance to divide and attack conservatives." With that non-answer, speculation over the fate of Heritage Foundation will no doubt reach a new fever pitch. News of DeMint's...

    The American Thinker ^ | April 29, 2017 | Rick Moran
    Politico is reporting that several sources on the board of the Heritage Foundation are saying there is an organized effort to dump the organization's president, Jim DeMint.  DeMint, who has a close relationship with the Trump White House, is accused of being "too political" and corrupting the foundation's historic mission of research and policy formulation. There's also a sense that he's made the institution too much about himself. "He has been a congressman and senator. They are solo performers. When you are in the Senate, life is all about the senators," said one board member, who asked for anonymity to...

    South Carolina's Jim DeMint could soon be out of a job that helped elect a president, according to a report published Friday in Politico. The former South Carolina senator and Tea Party leader cut his term short in 2012 to become president of The Heritage Foundation. The Heritage Foundation is a conservative D.C. think tank that got in on the ground floor of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. It has been attributed to significantly helping Trump win the 2016 presidential election....
  • Liberal protesters storm Heritage Foundation’s Washington, DC, office. It hilariously backfires.

    Liberal protesters stormed the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday — but the demonstration backfired when Heritage later took to Twitter using the event to promote one of its policy papers. Just before noon, around 200 protesters marched up to and inside the conservative organization’s Capitol Hill offices. Within about 20 minutes, however, they were gone, the Washington Examiner reported. The protesters voiced their opposition to President Donald Trump’s proposed budget blueprint. Congress has not yet voted on a 2018 fiscal year budget but is expected to do so by Friday night to keep the federal...

    Instead of trying to help reach consensus with traditional protest, they tried intimidating the opposition ... The mob that just muscled their way into the lobby of the Heritage Foundation must have missed Obama's lecture. When those partisans pushed past security onto private property, they signaled that the liberal resistance has given up on unity. Quite simply, division is the new goal. More than a tantrum, this is a significant shift in the direction of the reiterating protests that have continued non-stop since Trump took office ... Around 200 protestors flooded into Heritage's Capitol Hill headquarters an hour before noon...

    The Blood Type Diet ^ | 4-18-2017 | Peter D'Adamo
    There is a vast span of human existence of which little is known. Archeological ruins from the beginnings of civilization have been unearthed, and there have been occasional discoveries of a more prehistoric nature, but not much else. The impermanency of our physical existence is responsible for this void; our flesh and body fluids rapidly decompose after death. Unless preserved by extraordinary means, even skeletal remains eventually crumble and disappear. Early peoples did not practice ceremonial burial. Left to the elements, bodies soon completely decomposed: "Dust to dust" was not a mere poetic metaphor. It was a recorded observation of...

    youtube (original sourcre: apologeticspress.org) ^ | Published on Jul 6, 2015 (on youtube) | By Dave Miller, Ph.D.
    Session #1 of "The Silencing of God" seminar introduces the sinister attempt to expunge manifestations of God, Christ, and the Bible from American life--in direct and stark contradiction to the original intentions of the Founders and Framers. The United States of America is undergoing swift transition as the forces of “political correctness” wage a vociferous culture war. Activist judges, secularist educators, morally bankrupt entertainers, and liberal politicians have teamed up to sell a sanitized version of America’s past. Their objective? To expunge every manifestation of God, Christ, and the Bible from American life. What has been the result of their...

    Hillary Clinton lobbed the video equivalent of a Nazi buzz bomb at Donald Trump on Saturday by making his German heritage a campaign issue. The 37-second clip decrying Trump’s attacks on federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican heritage was subtle — but fans and foes got the message: Clinton thinks Trump, like the Nazis, hates people based on their race. “His heritage is German. Heil Trump!” tweeted Trump foe Michael Gilmor‏.
