instaPoll: Do you believe that the United States should continue to utilize foreign assistance as a tool to support our foreign policy?

Congressman Randy Forbes



With a record $16 trillion in debt and a federal government consistently spending a trillion dollars a year more than it has taken in, Congress must address the fundamental issue at hand: a serious overspending problem in Washington. One area of federal spending that has been the focus of recent debate is foreign aid. 

For decades, the United States has used foreign assistance to provide humanitarian aid, promote economic development, and foster good governance, often in places where American security interests are at stake.

Despite the cost, some believe that the federal government should continue to provide this funding as an investment to advance the nation's security, prosperity, and global leadership.  Others argue that the United States should end foreign aid and, instead, spend that money on programs for American citizens. 

There are four key questions that I believe we must ask in order to assess foreign aid accurately and to determine if it is an appropriate investment of American tax dollars. Does foreign aid to a given region offer the American people return on investment in terms of their own security? Does such aid promote the free flow of goods and materials critical to the success of American trade? Does it protect supply routes and safety for American troops stationed abroad? Does it seriously mitigate the potential impact of disease pandemics?

Question of the week:  Do you believe that the United States should continue to utilize foreign assistance as a tool to support our foreign policy?

( ) Yes.
( ) No.
( ) I don't know.
( ) Other.

The event also featured 2016 creator Dinesh D'Souza and Producer Gerald Molen announcing their new film AMERICA. Click above to watch the teaser and Dinesh's speech at CPAC.

Hollywood Reporter on AMERICA film

Gerald Molen, the Oscar-winning producer of "Schindler's List," "Jurassic Park" and other blockbusters, is re-teaming with conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza for a movie simply called "America."

The filmmakers behind 2016: Obama’s America are working on a follow-up to what has become the second-biggest political documentary in the history of the domestic box office, The Hollywood Reporterhas learned exclusively.

Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza, who starred in, co-wrote and co-directed 2016, will return as the writer and star of a film simply titled America to be directed by John Sullivan, who wrote and directed 2016 with D’Souza. Gerald Molen, who won a best picture Oscar for producing Schindler’s List with Steven Spielberg in 1993, will executive produce America, as he did for 2016.

2016 Co-Director John Sullivan addresses CPAC: "Getting Hollywood Right"

America is more than ready for patriotic themes to enliven good, old fashioned storytelling. Conservatives must not only pick up cameras and start telling solid stories, but those holding the financial cards must do their part, too.

"Donors ... don’t give another dollar until you give one back on entertainment," Sullivan said.

CPAC attendees simply couldn't get enough of late Internet mogul Andrew Breitbart's inspiration and legacy.

Shortly after conservatives packed into Breitbart News' Uninvited panel, which featured voices too often not heard around CPAC, they squeezed into a screening hall to watch Hating Breitbart.

The documentary, which earned Blog Bash's Best Movie honors earlier in the convention, drew cheers as well as a standing room only crowd on CPAC's final day. A guard watching the screening door had to keep turning curious attendees away who wanted to see what the fuss was all about.
