Americans Seek Truth with The Heartland Institute as Opposed to Radicals Like Al Gore and Greta Thunberg

Of all the products produced by climate realists in our fight against the unscientific climate scare, none are more important than the Climate Change Reconsidered (CCR) series of reports of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC). CCR reports summarize literally thousands of studies from peer-reviewed scientific journals that either refute or cast serious doubt on the science of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). 

The beauty of the CCR reports is that, whether the topic is temperature change, extreme weather trends, sea level, the biological effects of rising carbon dioxide, life in the ocean, or the benefits of fossils fuels, every subject is addressed in two ways: a heavily referenced, detailed chapter for experts and an easy-to-read summary for laypeople. Associated with each thousand-page CCR report is a straightforward Summary for Policy Makers of about a dozen pages. 

The publisher, editor, and indeed one of the driving forces that made these amazing documents come to fruition is the Arlington Heights, Illinois-based free-market think tank, The Heartland Institute. Readers are encouraged to direct anyone who says that “climate scientists agree we are causing a climate emergency; the science is settled” to the CCR reports at 

Thousands of generous people join every year to support Heartland’s efforts to keep America a free and democratic republic. This is critically important right now since our country is under attack as never before from a communist movement parading under titles such as liberal and progressive. 

Once a mid-west-focused conservative think tank, today’s Heartland Institute is a nationally recognized force for freedom. Its public policy reform success is a result of a strategy to constantly educate policymakers with the best free-market research and to interact with them directly and personally. Heartland operates five policy centers as follows:

1) The Arthur B. Robinson Center on Climate and Environment

The Chicken Littles of climate change catastrophism constantly bombard us with their fictional prophecies of doom. From Al Gore to Greta Thunberg, the radical alarmist left enjoys fawning media coverage and unchecked indoctrination of our nation’s youth in public schools and universities.

Well, no more. Heartland recently launched an ambitious program to deliver the truth about climate realism into the hands of millions of American students. In October 2021, at Heartland’s 14th International Conference on Climate Change, they unveiled their own science coursebook, Climate at a Glance for Teachers and Students: Facts for Climate Realists on 30 Prominent Climate Topics.

The book presents scientifically compelling summaries of 30 common climate change issues. Each summary runs two to four pages, with visually appealing graphics. Heartland just ordered a first print run of 100,000 copies of Climate at a Glance and will send them to 100,000 high school and middle school science teachers very soon. 

This critical project is only their opening salvo for climate and environmental policy this year. They will also meet with and directly educate state lawmakers about climate realism, arming them with the facts about harmful alarmist policies.

2) Consumers for Health Care Choices 

Most people don’t know that a tidal wave of free-market health care reform is moving through the states. Politicians in Washington, D.C. are in for a rude awakening when free-market policy leaders at the state level soon rise up to take their place. Heartland works hand-in-hand with hundreds of these state legislators who have joined their Legislative Forum to promote patient freedom in health care. These rising stars are the future federal leaders who will usher in America’s sorely needed free-market reforms.

Heartland fought for many significant deregulations of the health care marketplace that were enacted in the states during the COVID-19 pandemic. With America’s attention on health care, they expect to see many more successful reforms to expand freedom.

Heartland recently published the American Health Care Plan, a comprehensive proposal to reduce regulations, increase competition in the health insurance system, lower costs and create universal access to care through the free market. These real-world reforms are improving America’s medical system and making the argument for further reductions of government control. 

Heartland is trying to prevent Obamacare and Medicaid expansion in the 12 remaining holdout states by educating lawmakers and voters about the public health costs of draconian lockdowns and mask mandate.

3) Heartland’s 3rd Policy Center deals with Budgets and Taxes

The Biden administration and spendthrift members of Congress are driving America over a fiscal cliff. Many states fare no better. If we champions of liberty do not equip free-market reformers with effective solutions, America will face devastating stagflation in the near future.

Regulatory policy is also important, and Heartland is involved here as well as it seeks reductions in occupational licensing and expansions of worker freedom. Minimum wage hikes and other unnecessary restrictions on commerce regularly receive Heartland’s scrutiny and are defeated.

Perhaps the most destructive regulations in place today are the special carve-outs enjoyed by the cartel of Big Tech social media companies, which collude frequently with the Biden administration to silence critics online. Heartland led the nation last year in confronting these violations of America’s 2021 Policy Impact. Legislatures in 32 states considered bills to reform laws that allow Big Tech monopolies to censor speech, often done at the behest of the Biden administration. Heartland testified on these bills 25 times and consulted directly with bill sponsors in Florida and Texas, who passed landmark online free speech bills.

Heartland encouraged legislators in all 50 states to reassert their constitutional authority against overzealous governors, and at least eight states did so. Indiana lawmakers overrode a gubernatorial veto to pass its bill, and more states are continuing these fights in 2022.

4) The Center for Transforming Education 

The battle for America’s education system is the battle for the hearts, minds, and souls of the next generation. School closures and politicized curricula have awakened parents throughout the nation.

The righteous anger of concerned parents fueled Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s surprise victory in Virginia, and Heartland sees many policy reform opportunities on the horizon.

With education reform in the spotlight, a number of states are considering universal school choice programs, which give funding directly to families rather than underperforming public schools. Existing school choice programs supported by Heartland were expanded in eight states.

5) Socialism Research Center, Heartland’s newest center

The current direction of America’s public policy debate is increasingly socialist at the federal level and in many states. Consequently, this center is dedicated to combating the alarming rise of socialist ideas in general and specifically among America’s youth. Heartland hopes to reform curricula to teach students the truth about socialism’s legacy of brutality, as well as America’s challenging but necessary role in defeating it. The team’s mission is to expose the socialist underbelly of the radical left’s policies, including the Green New Deal and the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” of global capitalism. 

Members of the Socialism Research Center team were the top contributors to Glenn Beck’s latest New York Times bestseller, Arguing with Socialists. And Heartland’s Justin Haskins and Donald Kendal coauthored Beck’s new book, The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First Century Fascism, which just debuted at number one on Amazon.

Anti-socialist online education has been Heartland’s largest social media outreach campaign to date, adding significantly to their audience of millions of viewers every month. Their successful efforts to curtail Big Tech’s censorship of pro-liberty views cleared a path for them to capture the imagination of the millennial generation, so often seduced by the siren call of socialism.

The Socialism Research Center’s series of high-profile exposés on the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Great Reset helped to turn public opinion against the scheme, causing the WEF to rebrand the effort and scale it back. Green New Deal legislation continues to stall in Congress, and its recommended climate change task forces have been blocked by Heartland’s educational efforts in most states.

This coming weekend we will have Heartland’s President James Taylor as our guest on THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY at both 11 am and 8 pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5 on America Out Loud Talk Radio.

The media is trying very hard to turn the upcoming midterm elections into a referendum on abortion…A large segment of the left is once again losing its mind and proving to independent voters what independent voters were already figuring out – that the political left is led by a radicalized group of thugs who want to burn down our nation and make us live under an ultra-authoritarian communist tyranny…

American Democracy, The End of An Era

Communism in America in 2022, at least in its early stage, is following the communist rule-book of social/political upheaval and violence. Communism is gaining control of the American government, the judicial system, and other institutions through leaps and bounds. Yet, it is achieving this through subterfuge. Let us not be deceived by…

The Elimination of Gun Owners is the Goal of Red Flag Laws

The Elimination of Gun Owners is the Goal of Red Flag Laws

Red Flag Laws are a calculated start of a slippery slope to control our young people, eliminate the 2nd amendment and disable Americans from the right to defend themselves. Every totalitarian society started by eliminating the right and/or opportunity for the populace to self-defend. So which is it? Well-intentioned ignorance? Or an insidious plot to change and control our American way of life?

Dr. Peter McCullough Testifies in Texas…”Pandemic Lessons Learned”

Even a data-model expert from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center did not consider early treatment in models to predict hospitalization. This was a stunning revelation as modern estimates have early treatment resulting in a 95% reduction in the risk of hospitalization and death. This means any COVID-19 data model is useless unless it considers…

Biden Must Stop Sharing Our Nation’s Intelligence with the World

Damaging articles on U.S. information-sharing with Ukraine told Russia what we were sharing with Kyiv. While clearly, the administration did not want to escalate the war, sharing information that we planned to contribute over a dozen Polish fighter planes was extremely helpful to Russian strategists. It is a real mystery how this administration could have been so wrong on…

The American Communist Party Must Be Defeated

Once the world’s preeminent fighting force, our Armed Forces are now seemingly more concerned with teaching members to use the correct pronouns and promoting ‘letters of the alphabet’ to command positions than in protecting America and winning wars. Now we find ourselves under attack from outside our country, as well as from within…

Wind Energy or Blowing Smoke Up Our Arses!

Among the most significant weaknesses of the horizon blotting Chinese windmills from hell are those 120 to 200-foot-long blades and what to do with them when they wear out, break, get dented, or get a bullet hole in them? Every time a blade chops up an eagle or other large bird (what’s the avian death count now, 500,000 birds annually) gets even slightly dented, it needs to…

Many well-intentioned psychologists and medical doctors suggest that mental illness is a serious problem that can lead to violent acts, particularly depression. Dr. Joseph Mercola, a popular osteopathic physician calls antidepressants the elephant in the room.

The Marxist Revolution in California Threatens Its Very Existence

The state is tumbling over three critical issues. First, the human-caused climate change fraud promotes the end of life as we know it if we continue to burn fossil fuels and emit life-giving carbon dioxide, the only reason mankind can inhabit Earth. Second, the Critical Race Theory that is turning citizen against citizen as either oppressed or oppressors, and third is the covid China virus that has disrupted all normal life and…

The Warning Signs Make Monkeypox the New SARS-CoV-2

The Warning Signs Make Monkeypox the New SARS-CoV-2

In November 2021, a report was issued by the Nuclear Threat Initiative, which, along with the Munich Security Conference, held a tabletop exercise to consider responses to a fictional monkeypox outbreak that was posited to occur in May 2022. Stretching credulity, fiction has now been replaced by fact as the world experiences a genuine explosion of the monkeypox disease starting on the exact assigned date. Could this exact prediction be one more big coincidence?

Overturning Roe v. Wade Does Not End Abortion; It Returns the Authority to the States

Overturning Roe v. Wade Does Not End Abortion; It Returns the Authority to the States

What can the American people conclude, both from the reactions to the leak of the draft and the anticipated reactions to this opinion? First, we should recognize that there are people in our country for whom the ends justify the means. Some will use lies, intimidation, and violence to get their way. This should be obvious from the hysterical disinformation…
