Yes; knowledge is power. Those whom we work for are amazed at what our populist, authentic conservative think tank brings to bear! 

CfAR is ready to help you in any of several ways. First of all, our courses provide the vital background in public policy, economics and history. Also, these courses lay out specific action that needs taking if our republic is to survive, let alone rise to new heights. Having taken the measure of government studies in education at the secondary and higher levels, and of what other, conservative think tanks offer, I assure that what we offer, you have not seen before.   

And we offer hourly or flat rate services. For instance, we can train you or your staff in public speaking. Or undertake research for you. 

Let us show you how to maximize your political efforts!

Our courses are geared to activism at every level, local, state and national. They range across public policy, history and  leadership. They combine Ebook and live instruction. Relatively short, these courses are meant for busy adults and youth (grades 10-12 and college). 

We can position you to be on a par, in crucial ways, with top leadership, including the think tanks, in the conservative movement. 


Joseph Arminio acquired his research skills in MIT’s doctoral program in Political Science. He received his Doctorate for having solved the riddle of how China’s first enduring empire came into existence, with very little fighting at all. (See his Grand Strategy of the Han Empire.) A long career in public policy, as a practitioner (including as a US House candidate, on the 2008 Maryland, Ron Paul, Congressional Ticket), college professor, author and, more recently, leader of an institute coaching secondary and college students in public-policy debate, led him to develop, over the past 18 months, the leadership training program that informs the Coalition for America’s Resurgence. The kernel idea of the program was set down in his article, “Public School Boards and National Greatness,” which was published in the Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee’s OCPAC Weekly Newsletter of March 8, 2021 and in The capstone of the program is the course “Bringing About America’s Resurgence,” which includes “How School Boards Can Have a Profound Effect on America.”

High school and college history courses (including AP) have been conveying  substandard narratives for nearly a century.

Student speech and debate–
forensics–(for grades 6 to 12 and college) typically falls far short of utilizing all relevant arguments and evidence.

Dr Arminio and his staff bring to bear the supreme techniques of classical rhetoric and truely fair-minded,
multi-perspectives (not only “liberal” and “conservative” perspec-tives).  

All our courses have direct application for teachers and students. 

In addition to the aforementioned courses, we offer 3 debate courses (novice, intermediate and advanced), care of our sister organization, Statesman Debate Institute.

Inspiration and History

SDI is inspired and informed by the then US Senator John Quincy Adams, who, in the early 1800s, also chaired the very first Department of Classical Rhetoric, at the college level. Adams wanted to train American youth for greatness the way the Roman-republic elite trained their youth for greatness. He would even go one better, enhancing such training by faith in The Living God. Hence, the rigorous pursuit of Truth.

Tragically, American education in general and even the thriving student forensics circuit falls short of what it could be, in no small part because the globalists hamper critical thinking in our schools. Notice the heavy emphasis in our schools on secondary sources, which, perforce, the globalists can manipulate and limit, through perverse funding.

From 2015 through 2020, SDI was in operation. We coached grades 6-12 and college. The emphasis was upon formal debate (Public Forum and Policy Debate) and upon Model Congress and Model UN. 

Once again, SDI would revive the dream of John Quincy Adams. Moreover, we would elevate our youth’s knowledge of history, economics, politics and government.

Ultimately, SDI’s programs revive the ancient paideia, wherein parent and child speak of the common good morning, noon and night. This is especially the case for homeschooling. Our government simulations are cross-generational. They involve youth and faculty, in other words, youth and parents-teachers.
