  • Statement on the Earthquake in Japan

    On behalf of the entire Heritage Foundation family, I extend our heartfelt condolences to the people of Japan as they confront the aftermath of today’s massive earthquake and related tsunami. Our hearts and prayers go to the victims of this tragedy and their families.

    Japan is one of America’s best allies, a stalwart of democracy whose ingenious and creative people have contributed much in the fields of arts, industry and technology. I know Japan personally, having visited there many times. I have come away a great admirer of its remarkable resiliency and earnestness.

    I know Japan will recover from this and prosper. As it does it should be confident in the knowledge that the people of the United States and those of us at The Heritage Foundation are with the Japanese people.

      My heart goes out to the beleagured Japanese people. The Democrats got us into war with Italy, Germany, and Japan and should have never dropped the two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki – this is cruelty by FDR Democrats as our Reagan Republican Party had nothing to do with it. FDR was a very cruel President who smeared aviator Charles Lindbergh. Robert Welch of the JBS said cruelty is not funny. RADM Peter Steele, USN was right and was never a cruel man as the JBS and Goldwater knew him to be I am proud of Dad and Mother as Mayflowers and Sons/Daughters of the American Revolution.

      Way to go Ed, it is the extending hand of America that will help Japan through this, Americans are the most charitable and generous people in the world. God bless you Ed and God bless America.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
