Our mission is to support public awareness of national security, economic security, and moral leadership

Since 1958 the American Security Council Foundation's (ASCF) mission has been to protect American freedoms and values by promoting public awareness of national security, economic security, and moral leadership through a policy of "Peace through Strength."
Today, we continue to educate and engage Americans through our articles and podcasts. Our American History Live program brings an interactive, real-time program to our future generation to promote civic participation and an appreciation of our nation's founding.

ASCF is a non-partisan, non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization. We rely on fundraisers, sponsorships, grants, and donations to keep our programs running.


Chinese are among the migrants taking a chance in crossing through the dense jungle of the Darian Gap to get to the U.S. Southern border. Why?
Senior Analyst Laurence Sanford tells podcast host Joy Votrobek that the Chinese can get into Ecuador on a visa, journey through the Darian Gap, and remain undetected up to the Southern border. Mr. Sanford poses the possibility that up to 5,000 Chinese military age-men are already on U.S. soil waiting on a command from the CCP. NGOs are facilitating the travel for many of the migrants.

ASCF Sr. Fellow Alan Dowd discusses his latest article, "Maintaining A Cold Peace," with podcast host Joy Votrobek. Mr. Dowd talks about the U.S. military buildup in Alaska and joint exercises with other Arctic Council members as a reminder of their claim to the Arctic's rich resources.

Inherent Resolve

Alliances, Force Multipliers for American Power.

During some of the hardest, harshest days of the Cold War, President John Kennedy reminded the American people, "We put ourselves, by our own will and by necessity, into defensive alliances with countries all around the globe." As the Cold War began to thaw, President Ronald Reagan called the NATO alliance "the core of America's foreign policy and of America's own security."


China - Russia Be Afraid

Russia should be afraid because the most recent example of a CCP territory claim grievance is the August 2023 Chinese map declaring all 135 square miles of Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island in the Amur River to be a part of China. Currently, the Island is occupied by both Countries.
