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."

Educating our children on America's Founders and Founding documents is a matter of national security. Our American History Live program is a unique, interactive, real-time program for our future generation (K-12). It promotes civic participation and an appreciation of our nation's founding.

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

PTS podcast host Joy Votrobek discusses the possibility that Iran already has nuclear capability with special guest Lee Boyland and Sr. Analyst Laurence Sanford. Mr. Boyland is a nuclear engineer who worked for the U.S. military in the Defense Atomic Support Agency. Most countries with nuclear capability stay in check because of the MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) theory. However, Iran is run by an Islamic theocracy that believes martyrs are honored after death.

PTS host Joy Votrobek interviews ASCF senior analyst Laurence Sanford about his article "Ceasefire." They give updates on the Israeli War and discuss Hamas's stance on releasing hostages and a real Ceasefire. Mr. Sanford also discusses why the United States needs a "winning" strategy and what that looks like.
