Today, the President announced his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court – Elena Kagan. Kagan is the United States Solicitor General and Former Dean of the Harvard Law School.

You can start by reading about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan on Heritage’s blog this morning, which includes a statement by Former Attorney General Ed Meese.

Training Opportunities and the Heritage Chart Book

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the American Majority’s Post-Party Summit in Kansas City. It was one of 7 Summits they are putting on across the country for conservative activists and candidates to help move beyond protests and into organizing for a FREE America.

If you missed a Summit, that’s OK. American Majority does other regular trainings for conservatives as well. If you are interested in finding a training opportunity near you, visit American Majority’s website. If there is not a training near you, they also have training tools like podcasts, video tutorials and training manuals available online.  

At the event, Ned Ryun, the President of American Majority, used the following chart from Heritage in his presentation.

It is part of our interactive Budget Chart Book which has 39 charts that help explain federal spending, entitlements, debt and deficits in a visual manner.

More Video from the Resource Bank

We had many great speakers and strategy sessions at Heritage’s annual Resource Bank meeting. In a previous e-mail, I linked to the You Tube video of Tea Party organizer Billie Tucker’s story.

Today, I want to share a video link to the speech by former Texas Solicitor General, Ted Cruz. In his remarks, Cruz encourages us to engage in the battle of ideas on behalf of liberty.

Thank you for what you do for liberty in your community.
