Patriotism/Heroes/Vets

Patriotism might be passe in modern America, but not for Pete. Want to celebrate America—he’s all in! This speech can also be tailored to any event or occasion that includes a veterans, military, law enforcement or memorial aspect. Pete can also talk about his time on the battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan and his advocacy work for vets and the military.

Christianity & American Culture

Andrew Breitbart famously said, “Politics is downstream from culture.” Pete’s pastor went a step further, saying: “culture is downstream from religion.” They’re both right! Our Christian faith—and how that plays out in our lives, families, communities, and culture—will determine America’s future viability. These topics include pro-life events, which is a passion of Pete’s.

The State of American Education

Pete co-authored the pre-eminent book exposing the Leftist takeover of America’s K-12 schools—“Battle for the American Mind.” The book reveals the secular Left’s 100-year educational agenda and outlines what parents, grandparents and patriots must do to fight back—to include full school choice, defunding unions, home-schooling, Christian schools, and classical Christian education.

Battle for the American Mind: Uprooting a Century of Miseducationby Pete Hegseth

Battle for the American Mind: Uprooting a Century of Miseducation

by Pete Hegseth

New York Times bestselling author and FOX News host Pete Hegseth is back with what he says is his most important book yet: A revolutionary road map to saving our children from leftist indoctrination. 

Behind a smokescreen of “preparing students for the new industrial economy,” early progressives had political control in mind. America’s original schools didn’t just make kids memorize facts or learn skills; they taught them to think freely and arrive at wisdom. They assigned the classics, inspired love of God and country, and raised future citizens that changed the world forever. 

Today, after 16,000 hours of K-12 indoctrination, our kids come out of government schools hating America. They roll their eyes at religion and disdain our history. We spend more money on education than ever, but kids can barely read and write—let alone reason with discernment. Western culture is on the ropes. Kids are bored and aimless, flailing for purpose in a system that says racial and gender identity is everything.

Battle for the American Mind is the untold story of the Progressive plan to neutralize the basis of our Republic – by removing the one ingredient that had sustained Western Civilization for thousands of years. Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin explain why, no matter what political skirmishes conservatives win, progressives are winning the war—and control the “supply lines” of future citizens.  Reversing this reality will require parents to radically reorient their children’s education; even most homeschooling and Christian schooling are infused with progressive assumptions. We need to recover a lost philosophy of education – grounded in virtue and excellence – that can arm future generations to fight for freedom. It’s called classical Christian education. Never heard of it? You’re not alone.

Battle for the American Mind is more than a book; it’s a field guide for remaking school in the United States. We’ve ceded our kids’ minds to the left for far too long—this book gives patriotic parents the ammunition to join an insurgency that gives America a fighting chance.

American Crusadeby Pete Hegseth

American Crusade

by Pete Hegseth
Join the political and cultural fight for America's freedom -- and learn how to protect our nation from the leftist agenda -- with this essential guide from Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Pete Hegseth.
In American Crusade, Pete Hegseth explores whether the election of President Donald J. Trump was sign of a national rebirth, or instead the final act of a nation that has surrendered to Leftists who demand socialism, globalism, secularism, and politically-correct elitism. Can real America still win? And how?
Hegseth is an old-school patriot who is on a mission to do his part to save our Republic. This book celebrates all that America stands for, while motivating and mustering fellow patriots to stand ready to defend -- and save -- our great country. As he travels around the country talking to American citizens from all walks of life, Hegseth reveals the common wisdom of average Americans -- and how ready they are to join the cultural battlefield. Now is that time, and Hegseth has written the playbook.
American Crusade is written with the same insight, politically incorrect candor, and humor that has made his television show one of the most highly-rated in America.
Modern Warriorsby Pete Hegseth

Modern Warriors

by Pete Hegseth

A New York Times bestseller.

From FOX & Friends Weekend cohost Pete Hegseth comes a collection of inspiring stories from fifteen of America's greatest heroes--highly decorated Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, marines, Purple Heart recipients, combat pilots, a Medal of Honor recipient, and more--based on FOX Nation's hit show of the same name.

After three Army deployments--earning two Bronze Stars and a Combat Infantryman's Badge--Pete Hegseth knows what it takes to be a modern warrior. In Modern Warriors he presents candid, unfiltered conversations with fellow modern warriors and digs for real answers to key questions like: What inspired them to serve? What is their legacy? What does sacrifice really mean to them? How do they handle loss? And what can civilians learn from this latest generation of veterans?

From the skies over Afghanistan to the seas of the Mediterranean to the treacherous streets of Iraq, these brave men and women take you inside the firefight, sharing the harrowing realities of war. Hegseth uses their experiences to facilitate conversations about the raw truths of combat, including the difficulties of transitioning back home, while also celebrating these soldiers' contributions to preserving our nation's most precious gift--freedom.

In addition to the oral history, Modern Warriors presents dozens of personal, rarely shared photos from the battlefield and the home front. Together these stories and images provide an unvarnished representation of battlefield leadership, military morale, and the strain of war. This book is the perfect keepsake and gift for anyone who wants to know what it means, and what it truly takes, to be a patriot.
