Human Events Story
Human Events’ exclusive interview with Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of the former president, revealed the family’s serious reservations with the Eisenhower memorial, approved by Congress and substantially funded by taxpayer dollars.

Days after Human Events’ coverage, the House Appropriations Committee zeroed out all 2012 funding for the memorial, saving taxpayers an estimated $50 million.


Human Events Story
Human Events Reporter Hope Hodge’s cover story detailed the hefty cost of “green initiatives” proposed by Military leaders, as compared to conventional approaches. These initiatives, including significant investments in bio-fuels and research and development, were not only costly, but also often considered counterproductive to the military’s core mission.

Shortly after the May 14 issue, the House and Senate passed amendments to defund these initiatives.


Human Events Story
Military chaplains revealed to Human Events reporter Hope Hodge that chaplains of all branches were extremely concerned with the significant pressure to suppress religious beliefs in the wake of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

After Human Events reported these concerns, legislation was passed (as part of the National Defense Authorization Act) to secure the conscience rights of chaplains.


Human Events Story
Human Events Senior Reporter Audrey Hudson’s cover story highlighted the significant government overreach from the National Park Service shutting down miles of beach access for a nesting bird. It detailed the severe economic stress caused to the barrier island that depended on tourist dollars.

The House included language in the Conservation and Economic Growth Act that to reverse the Park Service’s actions. The Act passed in June.


Human Events Story
Only Human Events closely examined the President’s proposal to give federal agencies control of our oceans. Senior Reporter Audrey Hudson exposed the negative impacts on energy, recreation, and the fishing industry.

Less than one month after publication, the House voted to strip all funding of the President’s plan in order to block its implementation.

“Human Events has been spreading the revolutionary news of our crusade for as long as I can remember.”
       –Ronald Reagan
“I couldn’t imagine the modern conservative movement without Human Events.”
       –Newt Gingrich
“Human Events does two things really well. I think that they expose the corruption and the reality, the truth of what’s going on in Washington. But they also provide the intellectual ballast for people like myself so that we can make the cogent arguments that we need to make in order to put forward our positive alternative agenda.”
       –Michele Bachmann
“Human Events has been the steady, reliable voice of conservatism. Human Events has been there: critical; important; insightful; American.”
       –Haley Barbour
“The Wall Street Journal calls it ‘a Bible of the Right.’ I call it a must-read for conservatives.”
       –Steve Forbes
“Human Events is the flagship publication for the conservative movement.”
       –Oliver North
“Not only do I write a weekly column for Human Events, I devour it from cover to cover. Why? Because it’s the one newspaper I can count on to bring me the absolute, unvarnished, hard-hitting truth. And so should you.”
       –Ann Coulter
“Thanks to Human Events and Grandma Norquist I learned that one could not rely on the establishment media for the truth. If it hadn’t been for Human Events I would not have gotten involved in the Reagan campaign of 1980 and the taxpayer movement.”
       –Grover Norquist
