Glenn Beck, founder of TheBlaze and renowned political commentator, presents at The Heartland Institute's 35th Anniversary Benefit Dinner. Beck takes the crowd through much of America's history, highlighting the wonder of what the founding fathers achieved and why socialism will never succeed in America.
This event took place on October 4, 2019.
Heartland's Donald Kendal and Andy Singer are joined by Robbie “The Fire” Bernstein, host of the Run Your Mouth Podcast, for Episode 211 of the In The Tank Podcast. This weekly podcast features discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country.
We talk about the impossible standards of America’s growing “cancel culture,” government control of society via climate alarmism, the unintended consequences of government actions, and sandwiches.

Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today.
None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.
What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.
More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science.
While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.
Thanks go to Tony Heller, who first collected many of these news clips and posted them on RealClimateScience.

Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr for Episode 210 of the In The Tank Podcast. This weekly podcast features discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country.
We talk about how Bernie's wealth tax would be a disaster, is frankly un-American, and would act as an "economic Berlin Wall." The episode also features work from the Tax Foundation, the Cato Institute, and the American Action Forum.
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 it's 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, Katherine 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 a team of scientists, policy experts, and (maybe) a public official to represent the "climate realist" side of the debate. 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. ET at Heartland.org. Tune in so you can make up your mind for yourself.
