Media Lies and Sloppy Reporting Exposed

09/20/2012 10:25
by Judy Kent   Washington, DC - The mainstream media is flouting journalistic standards for fact checking, objectivity and integrity when they report on voter ID laws, concludes a just-published paper by National Center for Public Policy Research General Counsel Justin Danhof. "The media are on a quest to deceive the American people into believing that voter integrity measures are racist, suppressive laws written by conservatives to diminish the black, poor and elderly vote," said Danhof. "Nothing could be further from the truth. Voter ID laws treat every eligible voter equally and with dignity." Danhof's paper, "Media Shows Pervasive Bias When Covering Voter ID,"...

Persecution of Christians on rise in U.S

09/19/2012 10:20
by Michael Carl(Email)   A report by two U.S.-based religious freedom groups says anti-Christian persecution is on the rise in America.   The joint report by Texas-based Liberty Institute and Washington-based Family Research Council says groups like the American Civil Liberties Union aren't the only culprits.  The report says government agencies around the U.S. are trying to push Christian expression out the door. It is dramatic, says Liberty Institute Founder Kelly Shackleford, of the recent hike in reported incidents of persecution.  I have been doing these types of cases for almost 25 years now.  I have never seen the levels of attacks like these...

Heartland Events

As a candidate for president in 2016, Donald Trump unveiled his America First Energy Plan—a bold proposal to transform the United States beyond mere energy independence. His goal was to make America a global energy power again, and that’s exactly what’s happening. Trump has already turned back years of Barack Obama’s anti-energy policies, causing the United States to once again emerge as a global energy power. This is an amazing turn of events—one that would have been impossible had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election, and still remarkable under Trump.


You must join us for The Heartland Institute’s America First Energy Conference to celebrate these accomplishments and learn more about what the future holds. We’ll be gathering in Houston, Texas at the J.W. Marriott Hotel on Thursday, November 9, 2017.


This conference will bring together the country’s greatest energy policy experts, as well as key players in the industry, to discuss how we’re making American energy great again. Will you join us in the heart of America’s energy and refinery industry for this timely and informative event?




Heartland’s America First Energy Conference will feature more than two dozen speakers presenting on eight panels and three plenary sessions. We expect hundreds of people to attend, and we are aiming to attract state legislators, think tank leaders, private sector government relations and policy analysts, and Heartland supporters like you.


The goals of this event are to:

  • Turn state legislators and state think tank leaders and policy analysts into advocates for key elements of the Trump administration’s America First Energy Plan.
  • Persuade civic and business leaders to publicly endorse the plan and back away from the anti-energy stances they adopted during the Obama years.
  • Generate national and international media attention for the plan.
  • To build popular support for implementing the plan at the national and state levels.

If you’ve ever been to one of Heartland’s International Conferences on Climate Change, you know our events drill down into serious policy. At the America First Energy Conference, we plan to examine – one year and one day after Trump’s shocking Election Day victory – the following:

  • Where does Trump’s America First Energy Plan stand?
  • How much progress has been made in implementing it, and what remains to be done?
  • What scientific and economic evidence is there the plan is putting the nation on the right path—either for economic growth, environmental protection, or both?

The event program is still coming together, but it will include prominent elected officials (including a member or two from Trump’s administration) and leaders from America’s energy industry. The panel discussions will address:

  • Energy and Prosperity
  • The Cost of Excessive Regulation
  • The Shale Oil and Gas Revolution
  • Energy and Agriculture
  • The Future of Coal
  • National Security and Energy Policy
  • Protecting Human Health
  • Protecting the Environment

There’s no doubt the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States has created a unique opportunity to fundamentally transform U.S. climate and energy policies. Trump’s America First Energy Plan lays out the rationale for and important first steps of that transition—and Heartland’s research and outreach has helped to inform that plan. Come to Houston on November 9 and be a part of America’s energy revolution!


Tickets for the event are $349 and include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We expect a full house for this important conference, so register online today! If you have any questions, contact The Heartland Institute’s Events Manager Nikki Comerford at or 312/377-4000.
