College Republicans Announce Truth Week 2014 Lineup

The Penn State College Republicans announced the lineup yesterday for their fourth annual Truth Week from Monday, Oct. 13 to Wednesday, Oct. 15. The week looks to foster conversation about important political topics, bringing conservative speakers to Penn State.

Started in 2011, Truth Week has included speakers like Ann Coulter, Herman Cain, and John Stossel. The week has also included an NRA-U session, educating students about the NRA and its opportunities for college students, as well as general gun and second amendment education.

Here’s the lineup for the 2014 iteration:

  • Monday, Oct. 13: Lawrence Reed, President of the Foundation for Economic Education. Reed, who is also a historian and author, plans to give a speech entitled “Adam Smith and the Birth of Economics” at 7 p.m. in 101 Osmond.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 14: Jonah Goldberg, nationally syndicated columnist. Goldberg will speak about his book “Liberal Fascism” in 102 Thomas at 7 p.m. Goldberg has previously appeared on “The Daily Show,” “The Glenn Beck Program,” and “Good Morning America.”
  • Wednesday, Oct. 15: Former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano, who will speak on government expansion and its potential threats to civil liberties. The current Fox News political and judicial analyst will wrap up Truth Week at 7 p.m. in 10 Sparks.

As always, all of the events are free and open to anyone.
