Description

Regime Change:How to Replace the Beltway Blob with the Foreign Policy Americans Want

As we near the end of President Trump’s first term, conservatism has been turned on its head. A national conversation has unleashed new approaches to everything from Washington politics and the economy, to government and American culture. Thankfully, this landscape has also created new opportunities for challenging the predominance of U.S interventionist foreign policies. The people have spoken. Americans clearly want change in our militaristic approach to the world.

Yet there is still one obstacle standing in the way of real success : A fully entrenched establishment devoted to American military primacy, global hegemony, and maintaining the status quo, at all costs. We call it ‘The Blob.’

Join us at TAC's 6th annual Foreign Policy Conference where we discuss how to defeat these vested interests whose broad tentacles are working directly in conflict with real American goals and values.

We have an exciting roster of speakers. Confirmed participants are listed below :
