Part 1 set the stage for The Heartland Institute’s Grand Opening celebration in their new building in Arlington Heights August 21 and 22. Supporters and donors were able to sit in for a day of presentations on that first day explaining what the people at Heartland do, how they do it, why, and how effective they’ve been in the organization’s 31 years.
The Heartland Institute celebrated its Grand Opening on Friday, August 21 and Saturday, August 22 in his new building in the affluent suburb of Arlington Heights on Chicago’s Northwest side at 3939 North Wilke Road.

Lay Catholics are not taking too well to the “climate change” sermons and homilies being preached by Church leaders in the wake of Pope Francis’s environmental encyclical.
In the same way that EPA has extended its control over water—and even land—under clean water laws (See Part 1), it has exceeded Constitutional authority and the intent of Congress under the Clean Air Acts. Once again, it has caused an enormous waste of billions of taxpayer dollars on government itself—and costs approaching a trillion dollars for compliance in the private sector. All this with measures that have little benefit—and often negative consequences—to the environment or human health. Take carbon dioxide for example.
Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the Cato Institute’s annual Cato University held in Washington D.C. The five and a half day course provided a wealth of information on a wide range of topics. From literature to lectures, I received a great deal from my experience. The best thing I walked away with was confidence that the Liberty movement has a bright future.

I report tonight with shock and sadness that long-time Heartland Institute policy advisor Alan Caruba has passed away. Alan was a patriot, an online entrepreneur, and a brave and tireless writer. We were honored to publish his work at this blog, and to call him a friend.
I received notice today of the passing of Martin Duggan, a marvelous man who dedicated much of his long life to helping parents enroll their children in schools that would give them a better chance of succeeding in life. It was a noble cause that benefited literally millions of children across the U.S., only a tiny fraction of whom will ever know the name of their benefactor.
We owe it to the men and women who risked and lost their lives to use the ultimate tool we have to restore the Republic — the power states hold to amend the constitution by convention and the power of interstate compacts to make it user-friendly.
We need to remind ourselves that Memorial Day is not just another three-day weekend or a day when all manner of sales are offered to those who want to go shopping. It is a day set aside to honor the ultimate sacrifice of those who have fought to defend our nation and take military action in foreign nations.
