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.
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 theme of this year’s benefit dinner is Stopping Socialism, a new special project of The Heartland Institute. We are devoted to informing the world about the dangers, including the moral dangers, associated with socialism, communism, and other forms of collectivism. Join us on this special night in service of that important mission.
Glenn Beck — nationally syndicated radio host, Tea Party hero, best-selling author, and founder of BlazeTV — is the recipient of this year's Heartland Liberty Prize and our keynote speaker.
Join us for an unforgettable night in solidarity against socialism and united in freedom!
It's time for both sides to make the case: What is happening to our climate and what can we do about it?
On September 23 in the Big Apple – on the same day and in the same city the United Nations will convene its Climate Summit before its General Assembly session – The Heartland Institute will host a debate on what is happening to our climate and what we can do about it. That's a debate long-delayed, but never more important than now.
We've cordially invited some of the country's most-prominent advocates for taking immediate action on climate change: Kevin Trenberth, Michael Mann, Don Wuebbles, Katharine Hayhoe, Brenda Ekwurzel, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They blame human activity for global warming, insist it will be catastrophic to life on Earth, and demand big changes to the way Americans live, work, eat, travel, and build.
If those claims are correct, then it's time to make the case to the American people – who are skeptical of the scope of the problem and have not been asked their consent to those proposed solutions.
The Heartland Institute will bring three prominent scientists who have often defended their findings and views from the "climate realist" side in public: Patrick Michaels, David Legates, and Willie Soon. Doesn't the wholesale reordering of our society demand at least a little bit of public debate?
We think so.
This debate will be live-streamed from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tune in so you can make up your mind for yourself.

Justin Haskins, executive editor for The Heartland Institute, joins Glenn Beck on BlazeTV to discuss socialism. Are they nordic countries socialist? Did their socialist policies work? What's happened since enacting them?

Heartland Institute Editorial Director Justin Haskins was a guest on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Friday to contribute to the opening segment on "Campus Craziness."
