- Question:-Is the Heritage Foundation the new rightwing source for data and statistics?
I notice every Republican always quoting the Heritage Foundation like it's legitimate when it's not. I don't think they should be considered a legitimate "thinktank".

- Question:-Has anyone set up a non-profit under the National Heritage Foundation?
I would like to hear from some individuals or organizations that have some experience of setting up a non-donor advised Foundation under the National Heritage Foundation and under the jurisdiction of of CDF(Congressional District Programs) and under (NHF). Has anyone ever set up a Foundation under them? what did or do you like or dislike?
Answer:-Check with NHF again, as there has been a rule change. Now you have to get your 501(c)(3) tax-deductible status to get money out of them. In the old days, when they could provide the 501(c)(3), it was a good deal, but not anymore. Now, your best bet is to find a local charity that will serve as your fiscal sponsor, if you don't want to go through the paperwork yourself.

- Question:-Is the Heritage Foundation part of the Neocon establishment?
It seems many of their members from the top on down find papers and ways to support every action administration has pushed through.
They are the largest backers of the President having Unitary powers.
When it comes to heritiage if one looks at family trees and support groups then one can see their ideas of heritage.
From debates on CNN whereby they have moderator and stacked deck against oppostion to the way they get their friends books,State Dept. papers published and get friendly educators postions on colleges.
This is a case of tax free orgs whose members and staff make huge salarys while writng papers in favor of corporate decisions owed to thier Corporate benfactors.
They help write the papers to get around legalitys of spying upon mail, the right to use torture so US can police world and support every administrations appointments. Mainly because they are one and the same incestual elitist group who want to rewrite Americas heritage in their own image.
Answer:-Actually, that would be the American Enterprise Institute--which is tied strongly to the Neoconservative movement.

- Question:-Is The Heritage Foundation a good website for illegal immigration information?
I ran accross this the other day, but it's hard to believe just anybody on the internet.
Answer:-NO. They are a right-winged Conservative website who's claims on illeglas have been debunked many times, especially in the bogus email that claims that illegals cost us billions. I really think that their journalist "Robert Rector" has something up his sleeve.
Cost of Illegal Immigrants
Q: Do illegal immigrants cost $338.3 billion dollars a year? More than the Iraq war?
A: A chain e-mail that makes this claim is loaded with errors and misleading assertions. Published studies vary widely but put the cost to government at a small fraction of that total.
