Ambassador Nikki Haley’s must-see speech at Heritage.
Last week, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spoke to a packed house at The Heritage Foundation on the U.S. decision to withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council. Fox News, CNN, and C-SPAN livestreamed the event and dozens of major media outlets aired and published additional coverage. “America doesn’t need the council,” wrote Heritage President Kay Coles James after the event. “Because with courageous leaders like Nikki Haley, we are doing far more to promote human rights without it.” Watch Haley’s speech.

The left is using old scare tactics against Brett Kavanaugh.
President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is now making the rounds in the Senate ahead of his confirmation hearings. “Kavanaugh is the kind of jurist that our system of government was designed for: fair, impartial, and faithful to the Constitution,” writes Thomas Jipping, deputy director of Heritage’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies. But Jipping says, just as expected, the left is using old scare tactics against the nominee. “Their quest for a political judiciary leads to wild claims that this appointment will bring on the Apocalypse and determine the destiny of humankind.” Read Jipping’s commentaryand check out our collection of research, commentaries, and videos on Kavanaugh and the process of confirming a Supreme Court justice.
