A Communist Graduated From West Point. Now Republicans Want Answers

10/17/2017 11:58
by Staff   Florida Sen. Marco Rubio sent a letter to Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy this week, demanding that the U.S. military take disciplinary action against a West Point graduate who promoted Communism on his uniform, cheered anti-American traitors on social media and appears to generally despise the country he enrolled to serve. Conservative view notes: "The U.S. Army is probing a West Point graduate’s pro-communist posts on social media. His father has condemned his political views on social media, and this graduate’s West Point professor has now been placed on administrative leave."   Mentored by an Islamist professor at the Academy The Independent Sentenal...

A Victory in the War Against Coal

by Gwendalyn Carver   While running for president, Donald Trump promised to end President Barack Obama’s costly and ineffective Clean Power Plan (CPP). In a decision that will benefit consumers and producers of energy, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt recently announced the oppressive CPP will be rescinded.   The Heartland Institute played a key role in the decision to terminate the CPP. We are proud of this achievement, and we would like to ask for your support as we continue to fight for free-market reforms that will benefit all Americans.   For many years, Heartland has provided groundbreaking research and publications promoting the benefits of...

Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch

by Staff Neil Gorsuch has only been on the Supreme Court for a short while Recently he ignited the fire of liberty and broke 40 years of precedent when he refused to join the SCOTUS “cert pool.” The cert pool was established in 1973 during the early days of the Burger Court, in order to efficiently review the near 8,000 petitions received each term.  In practice, the petitions are apportioned among the Court’s law clerks, who then circulate a memo to the justices recommending a grant or denial. The obvious problem here is that this  gives the power in these 8000 cases to the law clerks instead of       the  Justices. It also, in theory, allows...

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.
