The Heartland Institute hosted a webinar on Aug. 27, 2020 for state legislators to discuss how they can rein in governors, who wield seemingly unlimited powers in the wake of COVID-19. For many months, Americans have been abhorred by out-of-control governors who have imposed draconian lockdowns, which have decimated small businesses and people’s livelihoods. For instance, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been roundly criticized for his heavy-handed and ineffectual response to the coronavirus outbreak in New York, which has drawn substantial blowback. Cuomo has also attempted to coverup his disastrous policy of forcing elderly patients with COVID-19 to return to nursing homes, where they spread the deadly diseases like wildfire among New York’s most vulnerable. As the days grow shorter and the temperatures dip lower, now is the time to begin exploring oversight over dictatorial governors, and restore power where it rightfully belongs: With we the people, not I the governor.

Heartland Institute President Frank Lasée was on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight" program on January 21, 2020 to debate Chicago Alderman Matt Martin on his resolution declaring a "climate emergency" in the city of Chicago. "Chicago Tonight" is the local PBS affiliate's flagship news program. Frank pointed out that forcing Chicago to undertake expensive measures to "fight climate change" are not just unnecessary, but an egregious waste of resources for a city running nearly a $1 billion budget deficit. He also debunked the claim that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant" and that changes in the level of Lake Michigan has anything to do with human activity.

The event is a part of AFP’s national “Unrig the Economy” campaign, a multiyear, multimillion-dollar effort dedicated to creating a stronger economy by leveling the playing field for all. Americans for Prosperity-Illinois (AFP-IL) is co-hosting an “Unrig the Economy” dinner event with the Heartland Institute in Arlington Heights on September 19, 2019. The policy discussion will focus on why Congress should not bring back tax extenders or reauthorize the Export-Import Bank – two blatant examples of corporate welfare. PANELISTS: Moderator: Brian Costin, Deputy State Director of AFP - IL Russ Latino, Vice President - Economic Development Portfolio at Americans for Prosperity Adam Andrzejewski - CEO & Founder of OpenTheBooks.com Frank Lasee, President, Heartland Institute “Illinoisans know better than most [how] government can rig the game in favor of special interests. Often, economic success is decided by political favoritism and who you know. Instead of rigging our economy by picking winners and losers lawmakers should work to create equality of opportunity where everyone is treated the same by federal, state or local government,” said Brian Costin, AFP-IL Deputy State Director. “This event centers on how we can start to create an environment, in Illinois and nationally, where people succeed based on the value they create for consumers rather than hiring the best lobbyists to rig the system in their favor.”

The Heartland Institute debunks the gaslighting attempt by outlining the entire timeline behind this disastrous release.

Obama's EPA claimed that any exposure to PM 2.5 would kill people within hours. They then stuck people in a gas chamber with incredibly high concentrations of PM 2.5. Did Obama's EPA try to kill people to justify burdensome regulations? Steve Milloy, founder of junkscience.com, blows open this massive ethical dilemma.
