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.


Peace Through Strength podcast panel discussion with Sr. Fellow Alan Dowd and Sr. Analyst Laurence Sanford. They discuss a recent Gazan poll concerning Hamas and Israel. The protests at American Universities and the Middle East's influence. The grievance mentality is fundamentally at odds with America's founding documents and creed.

Sr. Analyst Laurence Sanford suggests when it comes to China, Iran, and other assorted terrorist organizations - "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." The CCP will work with unlikely "friends" to achieve their objectives. Not only does CCP money to Iran fund terrorist organizations, but it also sows chaos.

Podcast Host Joy Votrobek and Sr. Analyst Laurence Sanford discuss Israeli war updates and the Gaza scenario in this Situation Report.

Civilization Under Attack Part 2.
by Sr. Fellow Alan Dowd

"Israel's enemy - is America's enemy." Why? Mr. Dowd reminds us that "America and Israel stand for political freedom, religious freedom, reason and the rule of law - and stand in the way of Iran's terrorist tyranny."


Savagery Abroad, Poison at Home Part 1
by ASCF Sr. Fellow Alan W. Dowd

The October 7th massacre on Israelis by Hamas was grotesque and brutal, but Mr. Dowd states, "millions in the Free World are unwilling to believe what their eyes see or what survivors say." The article suggests generations in the West reject the truth, the horror of anti-Jewish annihilation, and some even reject the Holocaust took place.
