With hatred towards Donald Trump and the GOP at an all-time high, the Left is poised to do whatever it takes to seize control of the House and the Senate, block Supreme Court nominations, and impeach the president. While the mainstream media fills the echo chamber with reports of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia, Leftist political operatives are laying the ground work to steal the next election from the ground up. From the intrepid team of investigators that brought you Clinton Cash, FRAUD: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election by Eric Eggers, exposes how the Left will do it. With funding from George Soros and coordination by DNC Chairman Tom Perez, our country’s vulnerable election system is about to be subject to an all-out assault on senior citizens, felons, and immigrants. Don’t be fooled—voter fraud is bigger than you think, easier than you think, and has been going on way longer than you think. But the bolstered Left have now fully adopted a dictum commonly attributed to Joseph Stalin: “I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes and how.” In his frightening and thought-provoking book, Eggers highlights: - How progressive organizations manipulate, promote and justify voter fraud. - Why voter fraud is an increasing threat—and fueled by illegal immigration. - How voter fraud could be stopped or minimized—and why politicians refuse to take action. - How voter fraud could swing ‘swing states.’ - Can anything be done to make our elections fair and free? Voter fraud is corrupting our democracy right now—deciding elections and shaping our future. Eggers warns the upcoming midterm elections may see the worst fraud yet.

On Friday, October 26, 2018, The Heartland Institute will celebrate its 34th Anniversary with a reception and dinner with speakers at The Cotillion, a fine banquet hall in Palatine, Illinois. This year's featured speaker will be Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. The theme of the event is The Constitution and Human Freedom. This topic will echo and exemplify Heartland’s stance on freedom for everyone and an in-depth look at the constitution’s promise to deliver freedom. Which is why we're thrilled nationally syndicated radio host and AM560's own Joe Walsh is our master of ceremonies. Judge Napolitano tenaciously defends the natural law freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. Famous for his candid remarks, signature wit, and personal anecdotes, Judge Napolitano is the American media’s most outspoken analyst of the legal system, most fervent critic of government intervention into personal lives and commercial transactions and most passionate defender of the Constitution. He also lectures nationally on the rule of law, civil liberties in wartime, and on human freedom. We will begin the with a VIP reception at 5:30 p.m. with Judge Napolitano, Joe Walsh, and our Liberty Prize Winners Joseph and Diane Carol Bast. The reception for the general audience begins at 6:00 p.m. Opening remarks begin at 7:00 p.m., dinner is served at 7:15 p.m. and speakers start at 8:00 p.m. The entire program will run until about 9:00 p.m.
