Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary general of NATO, delivered a historic speech at The Heritage Foundation where he examined the value NATO brings to American national security in the 21st century. Stoltenberg spoke of the more than 1,000 NATO personnel lost in the War on Terror to illustrate our allies’ commitment to freedom and security.

When the Secretary General began his term in 2014, the alliance’s obligations were underfunded by European governments. The Secretary General commended President Trump’s outspokenness on the subject. He explained that President Trump’s actions resulted $40 Billion increase in European contributions, with pledges to fulfill obligations by 2024.

After his speech, Heritage Executive Vice President Kim Holmes moderated a vigorous Q&A session in which Heritage experts joined national reporters to get the Secretary General’s take on the challenges facing the alliance.

Heritage to Launch New Center to Reform the Federal Budget

The Heritage Foundation’s already substantial work on budget policy just got a tremendous boost. Thanks to a grant from the Grover Hermann Foundation, Heritage will be creating the Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget. The gracious trustees at the Grover Hermann Foundation have supported Heritage for many years, and now their contribution will be memorialized as we continue this vital work.

The new center will be housed in the Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies, which has a long history of producing groundbreaking research and bold policy recommendations. One example of that is the Blueprint for Balance which details exactly how Congress can cut spending by hundreds of billions of dollars and put the government on track to end deficit spending in just seven years.

Grover M. Hermann was an exemplary conservative who stood for free enterprise and founded the American Marietta Corporation, which is now Lockheed Martin. As a philanthropist, Mr. Hermann championed change through generous donations.

The new Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget was created with a $5 million grant from The Hermann Foundation. Grover Hermann’s dedication to conservative principles will live on, as the center will tackle the pressing budget issues of our time.

The creation of this research center will play a key role in The Heritage Foundation’s efforts to enact conservative reform in the federal budget process. Preserving the American ideals of hard work, prosperity, and liberty for our members is why we are here. Thank you for trusting us with that responsibility.

What changes would you like to see to the federal budget process?
