    Policy areas[edit]

    NCPPR's work is in the areas of free markets, environmental and regulatory policy, retirement security, constitutional law, the First and Second Amendments, religious liberty, academic freedom, defense and foreign affairs. Particular areas of interest include global warming denial, endangered species, energy policy, environmental justice, job growth and economic prosperity, property rights, legal reform, health care, Medicare reform,[11] Social Security, civil rights, foreign affairs/defense and United Nations reform/withdrawal.

    National Center for Public Policy Research is repeatedly cited as a member of the global warming denial organization Cooler Heads Coalition, which describes its object as "dispelling the myths of global warming by exposing flawed economic, scientific, and risk analysis", but reported on its blog in 2013 that it has not been a member for many years.[12]


    Publications include National Policy Analysis papers, Talking Points cards, the newsletters and among other publications, and a . They also have full editorial control over the contents of the wiki-styled web portal [13] which hosts conservative analyses of various high-profile left-leaning non-profits. NCPPR also hosts a global warming denial website , that provides information on environmental issues with emphasis on property rights. The site was launched in May 2002.[14][15]


    As of October 31, 2013, the organization's web site reported that its funding breakdown was 94% from individuals, 4% from foundations and less than 2% from corporations. The organization reported receiving 350,000 individual contributions a year from over 96,000 recent contributors.[16]

    For the fiscal year ending 12/31/14, the organization's 990 tax return reported revenue of $11,458,636 and expenses of $11,636,451. It reported receiving no government grants.[17]

    Project 21[edit]

    Since 1992, the group has sponsored Project 21, a "national leadership network of black conservatives". Project 21 provides research and commentary on public policy issues from a conservative black perspective to the U.S. news media at large and to African American community newspapers and media outlets. According to the organization, Project 21 members, all of whom are black, were published, quoted or interviewed over 35,000 times on a variety of public policy issues since 1992,[18] including on major cable TV programs such as the Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor,[19] The Kelly File,[20] Fox & Friends[21] and The Sean Hannity Shows,[22] and MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews,[23] as well as major syndicated radio programs including the Michael Savage,[24] Sean Hannity,[25] Mike Siegel[26] and Bill Martinez[27] shows.

    Edmund Peterson was the first chairman of Project 21. It was also formerly chaired by Mychal Massie. It is now co-chaired by Horace Cooper and Cherlyn Harley LeBon. Fox News Contributor Deneen Borelli served as Project 21's first full-time senior fellow from 2006-2012.[28]

    Of Project 21, the liberal magazine said in May 2005, "Project 21 remains a crucial gear in the right’s propaganda factory. Without [Project 21, its] cadres would probably be at home screaming at the TV. But instead, they’re on TV."[29]

    Project 21's Jimmie Hollis claims to have attended the November 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, hearing Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech first-hand. He shared some on his recollections in an audio interview conducted with Project 21 on August 26, 2013.[30]

    The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.

    In 1982, we started The National Center to provide the conservative movement with a versatile and energetic organization capable of responding quickly and decisively to fast-breaking issues. Today, we continue to fill this critical niche through a top-flight research and communications operation driven by results and the bottom line.

    In the 1980s, The National Center helped change public opinion through vocal national campaigns aimed at supporting Reagan administration initiatives concerning the USSR, arms control, Central America and human rights. With the Cold War won, The National Center now trains its sights on other issues, including:


    Firm in the belief that private owners are the best stewards of the environment, The National Center’s Center for Environmental and Regulatory Affairs advocates private, free market solutions to today’s environmental challenges. The Task Force highlights the perverse nature of many government-first environmental policies through the collection and promotion of regulatory horror stories, which attach human faces to very real problems caused by regulation.

    In 2005, for example, The National Center was one of the few groups addressing the loss of property rights stemming from the application of the 1973 Endangered Species Act and perverse incentives within the original ESA that harm the species the ESA is supposed to protect.  But when the U.S. House of Representatives began to overhaul the ESA in 2005, the proposed new ESA would have lacked sufficient property rights protections and would, through new “invasive species” regulations, have massively expanded the power of the government to regulate private land use and human activity.

    Incredibly, the proposed legislation would have permitted the federal government to take up to 49.9% of a person’s property in the name of wildlife protection without paying anything for it.  In response, The National Center:

    Developed and led a grassroots coalition of dozens of groups to educate the public and Members of Congress on these issues;

    Wrote two coalition letters, the first signed by seventy policy organizations and the second by ninety (including the American Conservative Union, the National Taxpayers Union, Eagle Forum and other well-known conservative groups), to House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo expressing these concerns, and publicizing these letters to the grassroots, to other Members of Congress and to the news media;

    Published a detailed, 3,500-word analysis of the bill, which identified seven specific problems with it;

    Personally briefed House Resources Committee staff, Members of Congress, the House Majority Whip (twice), environmental staff for the then-House Majority Leader and the Chairman of the corresponding Senate committee on the problem areas; and

    Participated in scores of news media interviews about the issues involved.

    Result: when the reform bill was finally introduced it was a very different proposal.  Five of the seven specific problems we had identified – the five most significant – were addressed. Other dangerous new regulations simply vanished from the bill. The provision to compensate landowners was altered in favor of full compensation. The revised measure was approved by the full House of Representatives.


    The National Center promotes regulatory reform. We educate Americans about sound science, Congress’s constitutional authority to legislate, and in the importance of considering the financial impact on families, individuals and disadvantaged Americans when drafting regulations.  In 2007, the National Center published the fourth edition of our book, Shattered Dreams: 100 Stories of Government Abuse, available here.


    Exposing the truth in federal tax policy, highlighting conservative proposals for tax and entitlement reform and educating the public and media on the importance of restoring fiscal integrity to the federal government are top priorities. Of particular interest is developing public, media and policymaker support for reforms that will make possible the long-term health of Social Security and Medicare, projects we conduct through policy papers, columns, press releases, petition drives, strategy meetings with allied organizations, meetings with policymakers, talk radio and other media interviews through our National Retirement Security and Health Care Reform Task Forces.

    Ongoing projects in the arena have been magnified with the appointment of Deroy Murdock, a Scripps Howard syndicated columnist, as a National Center Distinguished Fellow.  Since his appointment, Mr. Murdock, a recognized expert in entitlement reform policies, has written over a dozen new editions of The National Center’s “Talking Points on Social Security” publication, which is distributed by mail to several thousand journalists and talk show hosts and to Members of Congress and other policymakers, and also is available in electronic format.
