On Thursday at Resource Bank, The Heritage Foundation presented the Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship to Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist and a Fox News contributor, for her contributions to journalism.

At the prize ceremony, David Azerrad, director of Heritage’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics and the AWC Family Foundation Fellow, said: “We need more people who speak truth to power, including to the media. In short, we need more people like Mollie Hemingway.”

Hemingway’s new book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, will reveal new details in the drama surrounding Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Co-written by Carrie Severino, it will be released on July 9.

This year’s keynote speaker for the Robert H. Krieble Lecture was the Honorable Janice Rogers Brown.  Brown is a former United States Circuit Judge of the U.S Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, often referred to as the most powerful court in the country, second only to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Krieble Lecture is named after chemist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Robert H. Krieble who not only generously supported many conservative causes and organizations such as The Heritage Foundation but who also used his talents and treasures to fight against the spread of socialism and communism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

Brown was no less a stalwart for America’s founding principles and faithfulness to the Constitution during her years on the bench.  In her remarks, she said the major push for progressivism in our society comes from those who deny the laws of nature and nature’s God.  Referring to the theme of this year’s Resource Bank, she called on attendees to rise to the challenge and renew their efforts to promote and defend American exceptionalism and the rule of law, not just in our nation’s courtrooms but also in the public square.

Who are some of your favorite and most trusted journalists?  What do you believe is the biggest threat to American exceptionalism?

Brian Kilmead, Thomas Sowell, and Mark Levin among others for favorite voices of reason. We must overcome the belief that the rest of the world has the answers to our questions.

I watch Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell on a regular basis. They keep the public informed about what is actually going on in our government, as well as behind the scenes. They are truly helping to reinstill the values and principles upon which our country and its Constitution were founded.

We are where we are because we have forgotten. And, because we don’t want to seem proud or exclusive, we have allowed to blossom the idea that all things are equal. They are not. All ideas and histories and cultures are to be learned from, but they are not equal. Our forefathers created a country, it was not willed to them. They studied history in order to avoid the traps that crushed the human spirit, and to provide the greatest breadth of freedoms that mankind had ever known. This is what we do not teach in our homes and in our classrooms, and this is why we are endangered. We need to be zoysia plugs who aggressively weed out the crabgrass.
Thank God for the Heritage Foundation.

Sandy Rios on AFR does an excellent job informing people about current issues in Washington D.C., and across the nation. AFR also has a good show called “Washington Watch”, which is very informative.

Wd have too many foreign educated educators educating our children in schools and universities and too few parents interested in teaching why our Country was founded…

Head and shoulders– Piper — followed by WTs Pruden and Hurst. The public education system is deplorable and will stay that way without 2 major changes: de-emphsize football (max 11 games-none after Thanksgiving); basketball (max 30 games btw 12/1 & 3/15) and teach all-year around.
