Real Heroes: Inspirational Stories Connecting Character and the Defense of Liberty

“The truest hero does not think of himself as one, never advertises himself as such, and does not perform the acts that make him a hero for either fame or fortune. He does not wait for government to act if he senses an opportunity to fix a problem himself.” Join the Wisconsin Forum and Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) President Lawrence W. Reed for his discussion on “Real Heroes,” a telling of stories of people whose choices and actions make them heroes. In every case, they will be individuals who deserve notice and appreciation, individuals with dedication and initiative, and individuals who have held true to principles of liberty.

Exposed Abuses of the “John Doe” Investigation

Eric O’Keefe is a national conservative leader who has been active in politics for more than 35 years. He is a central figure in the so-called “John Doe” investigation in Wisconsin that has shocked the consciences of conservatives everywhere. Eric defied demands from Milwaukee prosecutors that he remain silent about the investigation that targeted him, his trusted associates, and more than 29 other conservative organizations. As a result of Eric’s refusal to stay silent, conservatives in Wisconsin are now aware of the home raids, massive sweeps of emails and confidential documents, and other unconstitutional conduct against them. Today, Eric is leading the litigation and other activities to hold those behind these violations accountable for their civil rights abuses. Eric will discuss the current state of the John Doe investigation and his plans to help every victim seek justice. He will also help attendees understand how the same tactics have been adopted in other states, and the network of “progressive” and establishment political leaders who are driving this strategy.

The Devil Inside the Beltway

Various government agencies do not always have to follow checks and balances, and can wield unregulated power. Small businesses often do not have the means or influence to defend themselves when under scrutiny from these agencies. Five years ago, the US Government teamed with a private enterprise to attack and take a file without authorization from an American small business, and they used that information to expand a government agency. Michael Daugherty, a small business owner who created LabMD, a cancer detection center in Atlanta, became a victim of a private cyber security company. That company, in association with a prestigious American university, conducted an invasion of business files and then used their findings to motivate the US Government to ride the wave of new cyber security protections and legislation. Mr. Daugherty will create awareness about this abuse of power, and his book The Devil Inside the Beltway will be available at the Wisconsin Forum event for purchase. More information »
