In Heritage Impact

Heritage Foundation membership grew to more than 600,000 in 2013, and Heritage members contributed more than $150 million to Heritage and Heritage Action last year to advance conservative ideas.

Heritage President Jim DeMint laid it out in an e-mail yesterday to supporters:

Recent polls and election results show that the American people are more open than ever to conservative solutions.

And The Heritage Foundation is prepared to build on this momentum.

Over the last year, our membership has grown to more than 600,000 Americans, giving Heritage — and our sister organization, Heritage Action for America — a presence in every state in the Union. Continue Reading »

Video: ‘No Government Should Control the Lives of the People It Serves’


In Heritage Work

“To understand where we’re going, we have to understand who we are as individuals and as a society,” Jim DeMint says in a new video about why The Heritage Foundation is so important.

America needs leadership from an organization devoted to America’s First Principles, DeMint says. That means “an organization that’s not afraid to proclaim that truth is truth, that conservatism is alive, and that no government should control the lives of the people it serves.”

Falling in Love with America AgainAdvance praise is already coming in for Falling in Love with America Again, the new book by Jim DeMint and The Heritage Foundation:

“Jim DeMint’s important new book reminds us that America’s real heroes are not to be found strolling through the corridors of power or ensconced in the mansions of the rich and famous. Rather, they’re the modest man or woman who lives next door.”
—Dr. Ben Carson

“In this important book, Jim shares stories of Americans standing rock-solid for their faith and values against the ‘Bigs.’ He speaks candidly about this anchoring faith, connecting love of God, country, and fellow man.”
—Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council

“With its bold ideas, this book is sure to shake up the power structure in Washington—which is what we expect (and love) about Jim DeMint.  He is listening to the heartbeat of America: hard work, active faith, and local control drive real solutions. These stories will surprise and inspire you. ”
—Star Parker, Nationally Syndicated Columnist and Political Commentator

“The heroes my friend Jim DeMint describes in these pages – like those I cover on the battlefield – are dedicated, resilient and committed to a cause bigger than ‘self.’ They inspire me – and they will do the same for you. This book is a must read for every American who cares about our future.”
—Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC (Ret), #1 Best-Selling Author and Founder of Freedom Alliance

You can pre-order your copy of Falling in Love with America Again from Amazon.com.

Jim DeMint

Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint joined Heritage Action for America’s Mike Needham last week for a conversation with members about the future of the conservative movement and how Heritage plans to lead the charge.

During the teleconference, DeMint and Needham previewed President Obama’s State of the Union address, and their predictions were spot on — more regulation, full implementation of Obamacare, and more executive overreach.

You can listen to the audio of the call online in MP3 format.
