2014 President’s Club Meeting

at Washington Marriott Wardman Park

Are you tired of your Washington leaders not caring about your concerns? As such sentiment mounts across the country, The Heritage Foundation stands ready to inform, educate, and impact the public debate to effect change. This year’s President’s Club Meeting will gather over 1,000 of Heritage’s most dedicated members who will participate in pressing policy discussions as we chart a path to counter the left’s assault on our nation. The event will feature some of America’s top policy experts, commentators, lawmakers, and journalists including: Ben Carson, M.D., Jim DeMint, William Kristol, Stephen Moore, The Hon. Rand Paul, and Scott Rasmussen. Next year, a new Congress will take office and conservatives in Washington will have one last opportunity to demonstrate our governing vision in advance of the 2016 presidential election. So join us this year as we come together to set the course at our annual President’s Club Meeting.   Click here for more information about the President's Club.

Visa Waiver Program and the Safety of America

Since the emergence of the Islamic State, the threat of Western fighters in Syria and Iraq returning to the West has become a great concern. The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) between the United States and 38 foreign nations has come under fire due to the perceived vulnerability of the program in allowing terrorists to enter the U.S. undetected. Our panel will examine the VWP and discuss why, in addition to economic and diplomatic benefits, the Visa Waiver Program may actually improve U.S. security, not endanger it.

The Locust Effect: Why the End of Poverty Requires the End of Violence

While the world has made encouraging strides in the fight against global poverty, there is a hidden crisis silently undermining our best efforts to help the poor: a plague of everyday violence. Beneath the surface of the world's poorest communities, common violence – rape, forced labor, illegal detention, land theft, police abuse and other brutality – has become routine and relentless. And like a horde of locusts devouring everything in their path, this unchecked plague of violence ruins lives, blocks the road out of poverty, and undercuts development.

Economic Liberties and the Constitution

John Locke believed that every person has an inalienable right to “life, liberty, and property.” The United States adopted the world’s first written constitution in part to protect the property rights colonists inherited from the common law against the federal and state governments. Several clauses in the Constitution – such as the Contract Clause – or in the Bill of Rights – such as the Due Process Clause – make that clear. Throughout the 18th and 19th Centuries, the Supreme Court of the United States often endorsed the principle that no government could simply take property from A and give it to B. Beginning in the New Deal era, however, the Court adopted a deferential policy toward government regulation of property, with the result being that, in many instances, economic liberties have become only what the government allows them to be.
