The Role of "Law of Nations" in America's Independence
Kluge Fellow Theo Christov examines the language of Emer Vattel's "Law of Nations" (1758) and the impact of Vattel on turning the newly rising United States into an international actor and eventual global power. One of the most reliable authorities during the Continental Congress (1774-1789), "Law of Nations" was not only the most consulted book on how to turn dependent British colonies into independent political actors on the international stage; it also marked the Declaration of Independence chiefly as a declaration of interdependence with other major European powers and the Constitution as a powerful statement of international law. Speaker Biography: Theo Christov is assistant professor of history and international affairs at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He is also been a visiting assistant professor at Northwestern University and received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 2008. He is the author of "Before Anarchy: Hobbes and His Critics in Modern International Thought." For transcript and more information, visit http://www.loc.gov/today/cyberlc/feature_wdesc.php?rec=7444

3. A Southern World View: The Old South and Proslavery Ideology
The Civil War and Reconstruction (HIST 119) Professor Blight lectures on southern slavery. He makes a case for viewing the U.S. South as one of the five true "slave societies" in world history. He discusses the internal slave trade that moved thousands of slaves from the eastern seaboard to the cotton states of the Southwest between 1820 and 1860. Professor Blight then sketches the contents of the pro-slavery argument, including its biblical, historical, economic, cynical, and utopian aspects. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 08:39 - Chapter 2.

America The New Atlantis - Secret Societies & The NWO Agenda
Milton William "Bill" Cooper was an American conspiracy theorist, radio broadcaster, and author best known for his 1991 book Behold a Pale Horse. Born: May 6, 1943, Long Beach, CA. Died: November 5, 2001, Eagar, AZ. Cause of death: Gunshot wound (Like everything, please research this info for yourselves!) Many people believe that America was founded under the Judeo-Christian tradition, the facts themselves demonstrate that America’s founders were committed Freemasons, Rosicrucians and Occultists that operated in secret. But a genuine examination of America’s earliest history reveals that the founders were adherents of the ancient schools of the mystery religions albeit through a Masonic prism. Many were Rosicrucians and therefore had an appearance of being Christian but were committed occultists. While it is certainly true that America was populated early on by Christians seeking freedom, opportunity and a new life, what is little known is that all the while ordinary people and families were taking part of the colonization of the New World, members of many various secret societies were also taking part and had been doing so since the very beginning. In fact the entire colonization scheme was engineered by occult societies, namely the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Sir Francis Bacon, chief occultist in England during the Elizabethan age was instrumental in the founding of America – the New Atlantis. Sir Francis Bacon believed that the New World was the New Atlantis. This idea was more than some fanciful intellectual dream. Bacon set in motion a agenda to realize that idea. Some of the most influential men of his day backed Bacon’s agenda and set in motion the machinery for the American democracy. Bacon’s own secret society, the Rosicrucians were established on American soil by the mid 1600’s and among the colonizers of the New Atlantis were very powerful men, called the Order of the Quest, who sought to re-establish the glory of the Pagan Golden Age. America’s destiny was planned out over 150 years prior to the American Revolution.

David Armitage: "Civil Wars, A History in Ideas" | Talks at Google
A highly original history, tracing the least understood and most intractable form of organized human aggression from Ancient Rome through the centuries to the present day. David Armitage is the Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History at Harvard University, where he teaches intellectual history and international history, and former Chair of Harvard’s History Department. His many publications include The Ideological Origins of the British Empire (2000) and The Declaration of Independence: A Global History (2007). We think we know civil war when we see it. Yet ideas of what it is, and what it isn’t, have a long and contested history, from its fraught origins in republican Rome to debates in early modern Europe to our present day. Defining the term is acutely political, for ideas about what makes a war “civil” often depend on whether one is a ruler or a rebel, victor or vanquished, sufferer or outsider. Calling a conflict a civil war can shape its outcome by determining whether outside powers choose to get involved or stand aside: from the American Revolution to the war in Iraq, pivotal decisions have depended on such shifts of perspective. The age of civil war in the West may be over, but elsewhere in the last two decades it has exploded–from the Balkans to Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, and Sri Lanka, and most recently Syria. And the language of civil war has burgeoned as democratic politics has become more violently fought. This book’s unique perspective on the roots and dynamics of civil war, and on its shaping force in our conflict-ridden world, will be essential to the ongoing effort to grapple with this seemingly interminable problem.

6. Expansion and Slavery: Legacies of the Mexican War and the Compromise of 1850
The Civil War and Reconstruction (HIST 119) In this lecture, Professor Blight discusses some of the conflicts, controversies, and compromises that led up to the Civil War. After analyzing Frederick Douglass's 1852 Fourth of July speech and the inherent conflict between American slavery and American freedom, the lecture moves into a lengthy discussion of the war with Mexico in the 1840s. Professor Blight explains why northerners and southerners made "such a fuss" over the issue of slavery's expansion into the western territories. The lecture ends with the crisis over California's admission to statehood and the Compromise of 1850. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Douglass's July Fourth Speech 12:36 - Chapter 2.

Senate Judiciary Committee with Alberto Gonzales-7/24/07 Pt2
Part 2 of 32 Senate Judiciary Committee with Alberto Gonzales. Continuation of Chairman Senator Patrick Leahy's opening statement. 7/24/07 KEEP IN MIND: Gonzales was given each and every question he would be asked beforehand. Nothing was a surprise - there was absolutely NO "GOTCHA!" Transcript of this portion of the hearing: LEAHY:When the attorney general replaced Mr. Graves with Bradley Schlozman, the person pushing the lawsuit, that case was filed and ultimately, of course, was thrown out of court. LEAHY: Once in place in Missouri, though, Mr. Schlozman also brought indictments on the eve of a closely contested election, despite a Justice Department policy -- longstanding policy not to do so. This is what happens when a responsible prosecutor is replaced by one considered a, quote, "loyal Bushie," for partisan political purposes. Mr. Schlozman also bragged about hiring ideological soul-mates. Monica Goodling, likewise, admitted crossing the line when she used a political litmus test for career prosecutors and immigration judges. And rather than keep federal law enforcement above politics, this administration is more intent on placing its actions above the law. The attorney general admitted recently in a video for Justice employees that injecting politics into the department's hiring is unacceptable. But is he committed to corrective action and rooting out the partisanship in federal law enforcement? His lack of independence and tendency to act as if he were the president's lawyer rather than the attorney general of the United States makes that doubtful. From the infamous torture memo to Mr. Gonzales' attempt to prevail on a hospitalized Attorney General Ashcroft to certify an illegal eavesdropping program to the recent opinion seeking to justify Harriet Miers' contemptuous refusal to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, the Justice Department has been reduced to the role of an enabler for this administration. What we need instead is genuine accountability and real independence. We learned earlier this year of systematic misuse and abuse of national security letters, a powerful tool for the government to obtain personal information without the approval of a court or a prosecutor. The attorney general has said he had no inkling of these or other problems with vastly expanded investigative powers. But now we know otherwise. Recent documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act lawsuits and reported in The Washington Post indicate that the attorney general was receiving reports in 2005 and 2006 of violations in connection with the Patriot Act and abuses of national security letters. Yet, when the attorney general testified under oath before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in April 2005, he said that the track record established over the past three years has demonstrated the effectiveness of the safeguards of civil liberties put in place when the act was passed. Earlier this month, in response to written questions I sent to the attorney general about when he first learned of problems with national security letters, he once again failed to mention these reports of problems. LEAHY: Only with the openness and honesty that brings true accountability will the department begin to move forward and correct the problems of the last few years. Instead we have leadership at the Department of Justice who, when expressions of concerns and admissions of mistakes were made, only follow public revelations, and amount to regrets, really, not that mistakes and excesses were made but apparently regrets that somebody found out about those excesses. In the wake of growing reports of abuses of national security letters, the attorney general announced a new internal program. This supposed self-examination, with no involvement by the courts, no reports to Congress, no other outside check, essentially translates to "trust us." Well, with a history of civil liberty abuses and cover-ups, this administration has squandered our trust. I am not willing to accept a simple statement of "trust us." I don't trust you. Early Internal Revenue reviews, like the Intelligence Oversight Board and the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board have been ineffective and inactive, failing to take action on the violations reported to them. Only with a real check from outside on the executive branch could we have any confidence that abuses will be curbed and balance restored. And the tragic dimension of the ongoing crisis of leadership at the Justice Department is the undermining of good people and the crucial work that the department does. Thousands of honest, hardworking prosecutors and agents and other civil servants labor every day to detect and prevent crime, uncover corruption, promote equality and justice, and keep all Americans safe from terrorism. LEAHY: But sadly, prosecutions will now be questioned as politically motivated. Evidence will be suspected of having been obtained in violation of laws and civil liberties. Once the government shows a disregard for the independence of the justice system and the rule of law, it's very hard to restore the people's faith. And it's going to be very hard to restore my trust in what is going on. This committee will do its best to try to restore independence, accountability and commitment to the rule of law to the operations of the Justice Department. That is something that both Republicans and Democrats can agree on.

16th-Century Doctrines of Just War & the Origins of the Spanish Empire
Kluge Fellow Andrew Devereux examined the legal and moral questions of empire on the threshold of the early modern era by casting light on Spain's expansionary ventures in the Mediterranean basin in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. His talk focused on Spain's Mediterranean expansion, particularly on Spanish designs on the Holy Land and the ways in which the acquisition of the title to the defunct crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem served as the basis for legal arguments justifying war and conquest in a range of lands inhabited by non-Christian peoples. Speaker Biography: Andrew Devereux is assistant professor of history at Loyola Marymount University. He is a historian of the medieval and early modern Mediterranean. Devereux earned his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, where his dissertation examined Spanish imperial ideologies in the context of the Mediterranean world.

► Reality Transurfing by Vadim Zeland - Steps I-V / read by Bootsy Greenwood
Start with the first book https://youtu.be/Lbar0kbWJm4 . ● 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐠 ● This book talks about some very strange and unusual things. This is all so shocking, that you won’t want to believe it. But you will not be asked to believe it. Methods will be presented that allow you to verify everything yourself. And only then will your ordinary way of looking at things fall apart. We all, in one way or another, find ourselves in the power of circumstances. Desires go unfulfilled, dreams never come true. And our worst expectations justify themselves, as if to spite us. Can’t we turn this around? It appears that we can. And you’ll learn how. Transurfing is the technology for controlling reality. In spite of the completely fantastic nature of the ideas presented in this book, they have already found practical affirmation. Those who have tried Transurfing, have experienced amazement, verging on ecstasy. The surrounding world of transurfers changes in an inexplicable way, literally before their very eyes. Those who ventured to employ these methods in everyday life were astonished (perhaps, even frightened) by how real and effective they are.

The name is “Transurfing of reality” by Vadim Zeland. It’s not one book in fact, but the whole series of books that build up several concepts into one coherent theory. In a nutshell, Transurfing is a model of seeing and controlling the world. In Russian speaking countries, this book became a bestseller and an iconic piece of esoteric philosophy. Many ideas of the Transurfing were known long before Vadim Zeland nevertheless this book is simply amazing and helps to look at the world from a completely different angle. It is important to understand prior to reading that Transurfing is no panacea for all woes. Applied in a smart way Transurfing can become a truly powerful tool for shaping the reality and materialization of wishes.

1984 By George Orwell (2/3) Audiobook
Part1- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMzBE... Part3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVoDX... Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while the year 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish.

Harvest of Hope: 4 Phil Fontaine
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this timely and insightful forum moderated by Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Director Kevin Gover (Pawnee/Comanche) focuses on topical issues of reconciliation and highlights national apologies made to Native peoples. The symposium covers the eloquent apology issued in June 2008 by the Canadian government for the abuse and cultural loss suffered by Aboriginal peoples in Canada's residential schools. It includes a presentation on the Native American Apology Resolution recently passed in the United States Senate as well as an examination of reconciliation efforts in Guatemala. A wrap-up speaker considers the issues involved in apologies and reconciliation processes in a broad scope. Concluding with panel discussion and questions from the audience, Harvest of Hope seeks a deeper, more inclusive understanding of our national narratives and the experiences of the Native peoples of the Americas. In Part 4, Phil Fontaine gives a talk entitled, "The Apology Breakthrough: Now What?" Chief Phil Fontaine (Sagkeeng First Nation) is a dedicated and highly respected leader in Canada. He has been instrumental in facilitating change and advancement for First Nations people from the time he was first elected to public office as Chief, at the young age of twenty-eight. He is a proud member of the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba and still plays an active role in the support of his community. In the early 1980s he was elected to the position of Manitoba Regional Chief for the Assembly of First Nations. When his term expired in 1991, he was elected Grand Chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs where he served three consecutive terms. He played a key role in the development of Manitoba's Framework Agreement Initiative and in the defeat of the Meech Lake Accord, and signed an Employment Equity Agreement with thirty-nine federal agencies. In 1997 he stepped onto the national stage where he was elected to the highest elected position in First Nations politics, National Chief. He is now serving an unprecedented third term in office. His list of accomplishments as National Chief include signing the Declaration of Kinship and Cooperation of the Indigenous and First Nations of North America; being the first Indigenous leader to address the Organization of American States; leading the successful resolution and settlement of the 150-year Indian residential school tragedy; the Making Poverty History Campaign; lobbying for the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People; and negotiating a fair and just process for the settlement of specific land claims. National Chief Fontaine has received many awards and honors for his work, including four honorary degrees and membership in the Order of Manitoba. This symposium took place in the Rasmuson Theater of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC on November 13, 2008.

Bob Herbert's Op-Ed.TV: The State of the American Economy with Robert Johnson
Nearly 100 percent of the income gains since the end of the Great Recession have gone to the top 10 percent of Americans. Nearly 40 percent of all black children in America are growing up in poverty. America’s physical plant - its roads and bridges, schoolhouses and harbors and dams and water systems - are in sad shape, but we can’t seem to get them repaired or replaced. Three-quarters of Americans think the country is on the wrong track. What’s happened to this country that once took great pride in its so-called Can-Do spirit? Bob Herbert covers it all with his guest Robert Johnson, an economist who has served as managing director at Soros Fund Management, as chief economist of the United States Senate Banking Committee, and is currently the president of the Institute for New Economic Thinking. (Taped 05-24-16) Bob Herbert's Op-Ed.TV is a weekly half-hour program featuring interviews with significant men and women from a variety of fields: officeholders and activists, economists, labor leaders, writers and artists. Herbert, a longtime journalist and former columnist for The New York Times, takes a close look each week at a compelling contemporary issue. He elicits personal stories and insights into the character of each guest, revealing not just what they believe about a particular issue, but why they believe it.

JOHN MAYNARD KEYNES: The Economic Consequences of the Peace FULL Audiobook
JOHN MAYNARD KEYNES: The Economic Consequences of the Peace FULL Audiobook - The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919) is a book written and published by John Maynard Keynes. Keynes attended the Versailles Conference as a delegate of the British Treasury and argued for a much more generous peace. It was a bestseller throughout the world and was critical in establishing a general opinion that the Versailles Treaty was a "Carthaginian peace". It helped to consolidate American public opinion against the treaty and involvement in the League of Nations. The perception by much of the British public that Germany had been treated unfairly in turn was a crucial factor in public support for appeasement. The success of the book established Keynes' reputation as a leading economist especially on the left. When Keynes was a key player in establishing the Bretton Woods system in 1944, he remembered the lessons from Versailles as well as the Great Depression. The Marshall Plan after Second World War is a similar system to that proposed by Keynes in The Economic Consequences of the Peace. The book was released in late 1919 and became an immediate bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic: it was released in the US in 1920. The scathing sketches of Wilson, Lloyd George and Clemenceau proved to be very popular and the work established Keynes' reputation with the public as a leading economist. In six months, the book had sold 100,000 copies with translations into 12 languages. It restored Keynes' reputation with the Bloomsbury Group which had been tarnished by his work for the treasury during the war. Keynes returned to Cambridge to work as an economist where he was regarded as the leading student of Alfred Marshall.(summary adapted from wikipedia.org - Attribution: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Economic_Consequences_of_the_Peace&action=history) - SUBSCRIBE to Greatest Audio Books: http://www.youtube.com/GreatestAudioBooks - Become a FRIEND: Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/GreatestAudioBooks Google+: - READ along by clicking (CC) for Closed Caption Transcript! - LISTEN to the entire audiobook for free!

Participants operate under the assumption that our era urgently needs a revised political lexicon that would help us better understand the world in which we live and act, and that the humanities at large can and should contribute toward such a revision. In the past, some of the participants revised key political concepts while others showed the political work done by terms and common nouns that are not usually considered “political.” December 2, 2016 Brown University

The Task of History | MIT and the Legacy of Slavery | Dialogue Series
About The first class of the "MIT and Slavery" undergraduate research project ran in the fall of 2017, set in motion by MIT President L. Rafael Reif with Dean Melissa Nobles. As the research project continues over coming semesters, MIT is also conducting a community dialogue series that creates opportunities for shared discussions of the findings and our responses to the emerging research. At this dialogue event, held on May 3, 2018, four MIT historians respond to community questions about the MIT & Slavery research project and share insights about the power of historical knowledge for making a better world. The historians are Lerna Ekmekçioğlu, Malick Ghachem, Tanalis Padilla, and Craig Steven Wilder. Melissa Nobles, Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and a professor of political science, is the event moderator. Event News Story: The Task of History: http://bit.ly/2KrDvja Of the MIT and Slavery project, MIT President L. Rafael Reif, says “I believe the work of this class is important to the present — and to the future. Something I have always loved about the MIT community is that we seek, and we face, facts. What can history teach us now, as we work to invent the future? How can we make sure that the technologies we invent will contribute to making a better world for all?" Among other discoveries, the early research findings: offer insights about the role of MIT in the post-Civil War era of Reconstruction; reveal examples of racism in the culture of the early campus; and uncover the fact that MIT’s founder, William Barton Rogers, owned six enslaved people in Virginia, before he moved to Massachusetts in 1853. The findings also suggest new lines of research about the entangled relationship between the slave economies of the Atlantic world, the fields of science and engineering, and U.S. technical institutions. MIT seeks to encourage such new historical research and to contribute to the larger national conversation about the ongoing legacies of slavery — including how history helps us better understand the roles, impact, and responsibilities of science and technology institutions in contemporary society. The "MIT and Slavery" research project will continue into the foreseeable future and its findings will be shared via a website (http://bit.ly/2BGQdal) that is accessible to the MIT community, scholars, the public, and the media.

EMERGENT PRAXIS AGAINST ANTHROPOLOGICAL DELIRIUMS There is something strangely familiar in the current tension between Indigenous praxis and its critics. In the second decade of the 21st century Indigeneity is simultaneously celebrated as “engaged practices of self-determination against daily traumas of colonial domination” (Perley 2014:53) and denigrated as relying “on obsolete anthropological notions and on a romantic and false ethnographic vision” (Kuper 2005:218). The celebratory interpretation offers a reconfiguration of Manuel's vision for an Indigenous Fourth World thriving alongside European colonial societies while the denigratory interpretation highlights the lasting effect of colonial deliriums as Western domination and dispossession of Indigenous Peoples. It has been over forty years since George Manuel envisioned an Indigenous Fourth World (1974) and Vine Deloria Jr. critiqued anthropology (1969[1988]). Manuel's two optimistic visions that colonial/settler societies were 1.) finally turning toward a more indigenous view of their colonial settlements and that 2.) they “may be beginning to work their way out of a value system based on conquest and competition” (266) have not come to pass. Today's imperial deliriums have reached a global scale and subjugate all peoples to the oppressive burdens of global imperialism. Meanwhile, Vine Deloria Jr.'s admonition that anthropologists “get down from their thrones of authority and PURE research and begin helping Indian tribes instead of preying on them,” (1969:100) has had a significant impact on anthropologists and their work in Indian communities. Unfortunately, the prospects for the emergence of Indigenous anthropology are undermined by residual colonial deliriums of anthropology. One of colonial anthropology's original deliriums was the “invention” of primitive peoples (Kuper 1988). That delirium has returned as a neo-imperial critique of Indigeneity as the “reinvention of primitive peoples” (Kuper 2005). The irony of Kuper's neo-imperial critique is his failure to imagine the inversion of the familiar from the strange; the constructed from the authentic; the imaginary from the real when viewed from the Indigenous experience. The participants on this round table engage the implications of colonial deliriums in anthropology and the emergence of Indigenous anthropology. Are Indigenous anthropologists doomed to articulate their understanding of Indigenous worlds within the constraints of “Western culture theory” as Kuper suggests? Or, are there Indigenous idioms that neo-imperialists can understand and accept? Do Western imaginaries of epistemology and ontology have salience and utility for Indigenous praxis? Or, do such imaginaries have corollary concepts that can heal colonial deliriums of conquest and competition? Can this round table discussion provide the critical catalyst for the emergence of an Indigenous anthropology that signals the end of imperial anthropology?
Transforming Teaching and Learning about American Indians: 3 Edwin Schupman 1
Contemporary teaching about American Indians frequently present just a tiny glimpse into the rich and diverse cultures, histories, and contemporary lives of Native peoples. Transforming Teaching and Learning about American Indians is a symposium that explores the need to transform education about Native Americans that seek to address this deficiency and others. In this segment, Edwin Schupman, National Museum of the American Indian, speaks on "Racism Old and New: The Uncomfortable Relationship between Textbooks and American Indians." Edwin Schupman, a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma, is the manager of Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°), the National Museum of the American Indian’s national education initiative to inspire and promote improvement of education about American Indians. Schupman completed a master’s degree in Music Theory at Miami University and doctoral coursework in ethnomusicology at the University of California, Los Angeles. After completing a repatriation project with early recordings of American Indian music at the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, he began his long career in the field of American Indian education. Beginning in 1988 he worked for ORBIS Associates, an American Indian education firm, creating culture and standards-based lessons on American Indian topics, training teachers nationwide, and evaluating educational projects. At the Bureau of Indian Education, Schupman co-wrote a culture-based health and wellness curriculum and developed a national teacher training program. In 2004, he joined the education staff at the National Museum of the American Indian. During Schupman’s career, he has conducted education work in more than 170 Native American reservation and non-reservation communities nationwide. The symposium was webcast and recorded in the National Museum of the American Indian Rasmuson Theater on November 1, 2018.

Gary Okihiro, "Third World Studies: Theorizing Liberation"
In 1968 the Third World Liberation Front at San Francisco State College demanded the creation of a Third World studies program to counter the existing curricula that ignored issues of power—notably, imperialism and oppression. The administration responded by institutionalizing an ethnic studies program; Third World studies was over before it began. Detailing the field's genesis and premature death, Gary Y. Okihiro presents an intellectual history of ethnic studies and Third World studies and shows where they converged and departed by identifying some of their core ideas, concepts, methods, and theories. In so doing, he establishes the contours of a unified field of study—Third World studies—that pursues a decolonial politics by examining the human condition broadly, especially in regard to oppression, and critically analyzing the locations and articulations of power as manifested in the social formation. Okihiro's framing of Third World studies moves away from ethnic studies' liberalism and its U.S.-centrism to emphasize the need for complex thinking and political action in the drive for self-determination.

Congressman Frank Wolf: Nigeria & International Religious Freedom
FOLLOW US: www.westminster-institute.org/ Twitter: twitter.com/Westminster_Ins Facebook: facebook.com/WestminsterInstitute FOLLOW 21 Wilberforce: http://www.21wilberforce.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/21Wilberforce Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/21wilberforce Congressman Frank Wolf was widely acknowledged as the "conscience" of the Congress during his long service in the House of Representatives. First elected in 1980, he left Congress at the end of his 17th term in 2015 to focus exclusively on human rights and religious freedom. Long before the "Arab Spring" turned into an "Arab Winter," Congressman Wolf sounded the alarm about the worsening plight of religious minorities, notably the ancient Christian communities in both Iraq and Egypt. He has recently returned from a trip to Nigeria. Nigeria is on the verge of fracturing along religious fault lines. Ethnic and religious minorities in northern Nigeria face systemic and systematic discrimination. Muslims and Christians in northeastern Nigeria are profoundly and negatively impacted by the terrorist violence pursued by Boko Haram. Christians risk extinction in Nigeria's northeast. Congressman Wolf continues to be an advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. In January 2015, he was appointed the first-ever Wilson Chair in Religious Freedom at Baylor University. That same month he joined the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, a newly created religious freedom group, as Distinguished Senior Fellow. He is the author of the International Religious Freedom Act, which infused America's first freedom - religious freedom - into U.S. foreign policy by creating the International Religious Freedom Office at the State Department.
