Want to know why there are riots in our streets and the country appears to be completely divided? It didn’t happen organically, and it was not a grassroots effort. The foundations for our division were laid decades ago. Mike Gonzalez’s book, The Plot to Change America, explains. Join author Mike Gonzalez and conservative commentator Michael Knowles…
 
Since taking office, President Trump has been derided by the mainstream media and his critics as running roughshod over constitutional norms, fueling the conviction of liberals and some moderate conservatives that the 45th President poses an ongoing threat to the Constitution. In Defender in Chief, constitutional scholar John Yoo argues that Trump’…
 
As many schools across the country remain closed, parents are banding together to form “education pods,” pooling resources, grouping their children in co-quarantined clusters, and hiring a teacher or private tutor for instruction. It is a real-time, large scale example of civil society in action; what Edmund Burke called the “little platoons” that …
 
General David H. Berger, Marine Corps Commandant, is aggressively pushing a dramatic redesign of the Corps for future war incorporating new missiles, advanced sensors, unmanned platforms, and hypervelocity weapons.

In the first half of 2020, the EPA has already taken numerous critical actions to help protect the environment while respecting the rule of law, federalism, and transparency. The agency has finalized efforts to both ensure that environmental regulations are based on sound and transparent science and environmental protections do more good than harm.…
 
Following the death of George Floyd, books such as White Fragility rose on bestseller lists and “anti-racist” training programs saw a massive increase in demand in corporate America and governments at all levels, and concepts like “unconscious bias” and “internalized racial superiority” found their way into everyday conversation. What is the origin…
 
The Supreme Court’s blockbuster 2019-2020 term is winding down. There were important cases involving religious liberty, DACA, faithless electors, separation of powers, the scope of anti-discrimination laws, and the president’s tax returns. Our scholars and scribes will break down some of the landmark cases, talk about the historic new procedures ut…
 
Every year it seems another new effort to “reform the Pentagon” is announced. Every Secretary of Defense for the last five Administrations has “made it a priority” to address perceived bloat and inefficiency. Yet, few of these initiatives produce significant results, and the Pentagon bureaucracy lumbers on, as wasteful as ever. In his book, Defense…
 
On May 21, 2020, President Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the 1992 Treaty on Open Skies (OST) in response to allegations of many years of Russian violations. While Open Skies has arguably benefited the United States by providing a level of military transparency, the Trump Administration assessed that Russian abuse of the…
 
America is at a pivotal time in the history of our nation. Our country is torn apart by sharp disagreement on what it means to be an American. Many have forgotten that our nation is the best place of hope, opportunity, and freedom. Join us for the first of a three-part series, America’s History of Hope, as Dr. Lucas Morel and Dr. Thomas Krannawitte…
 
In an effort to contain COVID-19, many governors have used emergency powers to limit business activity, social gatherings, and mobility. Without action by state legislators these emergency powers will remain in place. Further economic damage and constitutional concerns can be allayed by replacing vague statutory language with clear parameters for e…
 
In the decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States has held sole global leadership. However, that leadership role is today contested by Russia and especially China.

The Heritage Foundation recently commissioned a nationally representative survey of parents across the country, along with a corresponding survey of school board members, to gauge their attitudes toward the state of civics education and the New York Times’ 1619 Project. The foundational essay of this project, recently awarded the Pulitzer Prize, se…
 
As the world reels from the economic impacts of COVID-19, the U.S. and its allies can move beyond the current crisis together to foster increased economic freedom. The U.S.-European Economic Partnership Recovery Plan emphasizes transatlantic community cooperation on key issues such as free trade agreements, the Three Seas Initiative, energy securit…
 
Since the start of the pandemic, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has obfuscated important information about COVID-19. The Chinese government has silenced whistleblowers, forcibly disappeared citizen journalists, and misreported infection and death rates from COVID-19. Civil society and other critical responders, like Taiwan, have been sidelined. …
 
With the importance of savings magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic, a new idea is gaining popularity: Universal Savings Accounts (USAs). These all-purpose savings accounts would allow every American to save for things other than just retirement, education, and health care. USAs could enable citizens to save for a rainy day, start a business, or grow…
 
Due to worker illnesses and even deaths related to COVID-19, there has been a bottleneck at meat processing plants that has reduced the supply of meat and poultry. Fortunately, these problems appear to be easing, but the situation remains fluid. As a result of these supply problems, there has been significant attention placed on the nature of the m…
 
Capitalism offers greater prosperity and opportunity for everyone, while socialism, unnecessary interventionism, and other choices promise equal outcomes but inevitably fail. The findings of The Heritage Foundation’s annual Index of Economic Freedom reaffirm the truth of this statement year after year. A complete government takeover of healthcare, …

Parents and leaders of civil society are joining forces to ensure our children understand the function and role of the American government and civil society. Join us for a candid discu…
 
Does the Constitution guarantee a right to a “basic minimum education”? How will a court’s decision affect the quality of education provided by public schools? Join us for a discussion with experts in education policy and law as they analyze the 6th Circuit’s recent ruling in Gary B. v. Whitmer, in which the court held that Detroit students’ Fourte…
 
The State of Florida received significant attention on its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Contrary to early predictions, Florida did not emerge as a hotspot like New York. Join us to discuss what the state of Florida did to mitigate the spread, what Congress can do to help the states in their response moving forward, and the importance of data …
 
For decades, American higher education has been facing an untenable fiscal situation brought on by increasing administrative bloat and an ongoing facilities arms race.

The final report from the National Coronavirus Recovery Commission is now complete! Over the past eight weeks, we've released more than 260 specific recommendations aimed at saving lives and livelihoods. We are thrilled that so many state, local, and federal lawmakers have already begun to implement many of them. With more than 40 million Americans…
 
The Libyan civil war has become one of the world’s most complex and dangerous proxy struggles. Outside powers are pouring money, troops, and weapons into the conflict—including a recent Russian deployment of at least 14 fighter jets (conveniently stripped of all Russian markings). Mercenaries from Russia, Sudan, and Chad are involved in the fightin…
 
For two years, Army leaders have flagged the need to modernize the force as the service’s top priority.

In 2018, The Trump Administration left the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as the Iran nuclear deal, because it enabled the rogue regime’s support of terrorism, failed to address its ballistic missile program, and paved the way for Iran to have nuclear weapons in the near future. Despite Iran’s repeated violations of its co…
 
In 2005 the United States and India signed a historic civil nuclear deal. The agreement, and the ten-year defense partnership that accompanied it, provided a major boost to the emerging strategic partnership with India nurtured by the George W. Bush administration. It also jump-started the long process of welcoming India into the international club…
 
Socialism appears to be on the rise, increasingly appealing to younger generations as both an economic and moral ‘solution.’ Despite the proven economic benefits from capitalism, socialism is being touted as more virtuous. How can we re-frame and show that free markets aren’t just better for the economy, but they are key to the pursuit of happiness…
 
For over 25 years, The Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom has been a mainstay in policy discussions in Washington D.C. and around the world.

China’s growing role in Latin America and the Caribbean has been magnified and accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis, but even before the pandemic, China was moving beyond economic ties to advancing a comprehensive agenda for engagement. Now, urgent questions are being asked about China’s role in regional recovery, and the shape of post-pandemic hemis…
 
The rise of China is the most persistent and consequential challenge that will confront the United States for the next several decades. Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, China served as an irresponsible global actor, who destabilized and undermined the peace and prosperity of the free world. Evidence for this was seen day-to-day on a range of A…
 
To help fight and rapidly respond to the coronavirus pandemic facing our nation, the Trump administration and state and local governments have suspended over 400 rules and regulations.

Hong Kong made headlines last year as ordinary citizens took to the streets to defend their basic liberties against infringements from Beijing.

Just this week, pro-democracy lawmakers were dragged out of the Hong Kong Legislative …
 
The Heritage Foundation is leading the National Coronavirus Recovery Commission and recently made a set of recommendations—one of which includes ensuring that front line clinicians are able to share emerging information in real time.

States are facing severe fiscal pressures stemming from the unprecedented self-imposed economic freeze, with many quickly depleting rainy day funds. To help states and municipalities avoid the immediate consequences of the plunge in tax revenue, the Federal Reserve is purchasing massive amounts of state and local debt. The federal government has st…
 
Young people lose heart early on. Trapped in government-run schools, they learn that America is a nation of imperialism, greed, and racism. Rarely do they hear the truth: that America is the freest, most prosperous nation on Earth—the only nation founded on the concept of human liberty. They learn that perpetual oppression is their fate, and that t…
 
In the face of a worldwide pandemic, America is responding to the ongoing public health crisis on a massive scale to mitigate the impact of the virus in our communities.

In an attempt to mitigate economic damage from the COVID-19 shutdowns, the Federal Reserve has injected more than $2 trillion of newly created fiat currency into the economy. Since the end of February, the central bank has expanded its balance sheet from just over $4 trillion to more than $6.6 trillion. Rather than limit itself to relying on its us…
 
As society opens up and economic activity returns, American history offers important lessons. Today we are still seeing how the massive federal reforms implemented from the top-down by experts and bureaucrats, like those put in place during the Great Depression, often harm rather than help the most vulnerable. How can we ensure our path forward res…
 
The U.S. Postal Service is in deep trouble and potentially faces the real risk of going bankrupt this year, with taxpayers left to pay the tab. Despite declining mail volume, many Americans depend on the Postal Service to deliver to them essential goods from food to medicine.

COVID-19 has taken the world by a storm, but none are more deeply affected than the world’s most vulnerable.

As Russia and China advance their nuclear forces and North Korea and Iran continue to pursue nuclear capabilities, the U.S. nuclear arsenal slowly decays.

The National Coronavirus Recovery Commission is partnered with the Leadership Institute for a digital town hall to present the commission’s latest recommendations and take questions from participants.

Ready or not, COVID-19 swept across the globe and utterly changed the landscape of the world’s workforce.
