Winston Spencer Churchill was half-American, and his relationship with the country he called “The Great Republic” and its capital were critical to his career as Britain’s greatest Prime Minister. In sixty years in public life, he met presidents from William McKinley to John Kennedy and developed deep relationships with some of our most famous leaders, including Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower. Churchill’s extended sojourns in the White House during the Second World War were legendary; he was the first foreign leader to address Congress three times, most famously in December 1941, in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor. Not surprisingly, Winston Churchill is one of the few non-Americans honored with a bust in the United States Capitol. RSVP

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right of the people to be “secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures.” But as the digital world advances, corporations, including big tech and the government, know more and more about us than ever before, straining traditional notions of privacy. What do corporations and big tech know about us, how do they use that information? What is the relationship between big tech and the government, and how does that threaten your privacy? And what are the implications of the Supreme Court’s Carpenter decision, which held that cell phone users have 4th Amendment rights in their historical cell-site location records?

Courts apply widely varying standards from state to state for evaluating expert testimony. In cases involving the herbicide Roundup, for example, a court in Delaware tossed out much of the plaintiff’s expert evidence, while California courts have permitted juries to decide what was valid. Both choices had a significant impact on the resolution of those cases. Should judges act as protective gatekeepers to screen out possibly suspect science? Or should they take a lighter hand and trust juries to determine who is telling the truth? Join us as two of the leading attorneys in the Roundup litigation discuss and debate these questions and examine the use of science in the courts through the lens of that ongoing dispute. RSVP

Several bills to expand Pell have garnered significant bipartisan support, but there remains healthy debate over the best methods for expanding access to short-term programs while protecting a vital source of federal student aid.

US Capitol Historic Society Art and History Lecture: "Elisabet Ney's Sam Houston, ‘The Greatest of Wild Men’”
Elisabet Ney was first contracted to complete the Statue of Sam Houston in 1892 for the Texas Pavilion at the Colombian Exposition of 1893. The famed Texan, Houston, remains the only person to be Governor of two states--Texas and Tennessee—and was a two-term president of the Republic of Texas; he also served in both houses of the U.S. Congress and in the Texas House of Representatives. Consequently, Ney surprised many when she depicted Houston as a young man in Cherokee garb rather than as a senior statesman. Today, marble statues of Ney’s Sam Houston adorn the United States Capitol as well as the entrance of the Texas State Capitol, thus aggrandizing the unique legacy of “the greatest of wild men.” RSVP
As we near the end of President Trump’s first term, conservatism has been turned on its head. A national conversation has unleashed new approaches to everything from Washington politics and the economy, to government and American culture. Thankfully, this landscape has also created new opportunities for challenging the predominance of U.S interventionist foreign policies. The people have spoken. Americans clearly want change in our militaristic approach to the world. Yet there is still one obstacle standing in the way of real success : A fully entrenched establishment devoted to American military primacy, global hegemony, and maintaining the status quo, at all costs. We call it ‘The Blob.’ Join us at TAC's 6th annual Foreign Policy Conference where we discuss how to defeat these vested interests whose broad tentacles are working directly in conflict with real American goals and values.

Recently, the Senate has held various hearings on the subject of patents, and during the course of conversation, Members have begun to address related national security concerns. As a result, it has become necessary to correct the record on the intersection between patents and national security. In July of this year, Chinese telecommunications company, Huawei, asserted more than 200 patents against Verizon Communications Inc.. Aside from obvious business concerns, these patents present serious national security implications, but perhaps not in the way that the Senate has portrayed thus far. The event will zoom-in on one integral factor-- if foreign companies beat the U.S. in emerging technology areas such as 5G or AI we have could have a major security problem. RSVP

Zombie Education Reform: Without A Meaningful Base in Research Evidence, Can Support for Online Charters and Education Vouchers be Sustained?
Economists talk of “zombie reforms”—policies that continue to live on in the political realm despite a paucity of evidence that they can accomplish their stated objectives. Education is not immune to this phenomenon. Most research on online charter schools and school voucher programs shows negative or insignificant progress on test scores and limited gains in graduation rates. Yet advocacy of these policies persist, citing such indicators as family satisfaction. Are these adequate grounds for supporting such reforms? If not, are there any more substantial grounds for continuing to pursue these policies? And is the political support for these reforms sufficient to sustain them, even in the absence of compelling evidence? From a variety of perspectives, our speakers will review the relevant empirical evidence and discuss the reasons that advocacy for these “reform” efforts has continued. RSVP

Come hear a panel of experts discuss Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996. Section 230 has been called “The Twenty-Six Words that Created the Internet,” and an “Unjust Immunity.” No doubt it’s impact has been enormous. In recent months, CDA230 has come up in policy conversations around revenge porn, child abuse, deep fakes, illegal drug sales, terror finance and recruitment, sales of illegal weapons and counterfeits, privacy violations, local housing regulations, violations of civil rights laws, hate speech, and the list goes on. Last year, Congress amended the law for the first time, after Backpage.com used Section 230 as a shield to hide its activities while becoming a notorious hub for child sex trafficking. Tech firms claim major changes to Section 230 will destroy the “Internet as we know it.” Critics say, “That’s the idea.” RSVP

According to Guinness, you only live once -- if then. Life is short, and it can be as easily wasted as lived to the full. In the midst of our harried modern world, how do we make the most of life and the time we have? In these fast and superficial times, Os Guinness calls us to consequential living. In strong contrast to both Eastern and secularist views of time, he reorients our very notion of history, not as cyclical nor as meaningless, but as linear and purposeful. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, time and history are meaningful, and human beings have agency to live with freedom and consequence in partnership with God. Thus we can seek to serve God's purpose for our generation, read the times, and discern our call for this moment in history. Our time on earth has significance. Live rightly, discern the times, and redeem the day. Register
