James O'Keefe, founder of Project Veritas and the most feared journalist today, accepted the Heartland Liberty Prize at The Heartland Institute's 2021 Benefit Dinner last week. Project Veritas has journalists hidden in companies across the country, exposing what these organizations really have going on behind the scenes. Recently, James O'Keefe exposed a teacher who sent his students to ANTIFA rallies for extra credit, admitting his aim is to turn them into leftist "revolutionaries." O'Keefe has also exposed a hospital for purposefully suppressing negative outcomes from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Kamala Harris continues to make nonsensical claims related to climate change. This time, she claims that climate change is leading to increased illegal immigration. Kamala states that food shortages are causing people to flee their native countries. Unfortunately for Kamala, food production is setting records year after year worldwide. Claiming people are starving when crop yields are higher than ever highlights the delusion behind climate alarmism. James Taylor and Myron Ebell join The Chris Salcedo Show on Newsmax to correct Kamala Harris and set the record straight. Subscribe to Newsmax TV on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/NewsmaxtvLive

The government The Founding Fathers envisioned was a force for good. Its limited role was to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If alive today, they would balk at what our government has become. Rampant government intervention seen today skews markets and limits the freedom of the individual. H. Sterling Burnett joins the Great Talks With podcast to describe how The Heartland Institute discovers, develops, and promotes free-market solutions to social and economic problems; fighting back against big government. Find out how the free market has helped accelerate the economic development of western democracies in this podcast.
