New York Times Promotes Showtime Slime Of Racist, Dog-Whistling Reagan

November 16, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The cultural elite are sliming the legacy of President Ronald Reagan and using him as a cudgel to attack President Trump, reducing the former president to a racist proto-Trump, while suggesting the press and academia have actually been too soft (!) on Reagan’s legacy. New York Times California-based reporter Adam Nagourney […]

He’s Back! + Pence Speaks, 2 Weeks, Pro-Life America + more

September 12, 2018 by


By Gary Bauer ~  The media has been celebrating Barack Obama’s return to the political stage since his speech at the University of Illinois last Friday. But the narrative is wrong. I would argue that Obama never left the scene. Contrary to the tradition for ex-presidents, Obama stayed in Washington, DC. Of course, progressives constantly tell us […]

The DC Press Corps Mocked The Reagans’ Love For Each Other

March 7, 2016 by


By Tom Blumer ~ Former First Lady Nancy Reagan died today. The Associated Press’s Christopher Weber, in an otherwise predictably passive-aggressive obituary, got one thing right: “The Reagans’ mutual devotion over 52 years of marriage was legendary.” How nice of him to acknowledge that now. The fact is that while it was visible during Ronald Reagan’s […]

By Brad Wilmouth ~ On Friday’s Erin Burnett OutFront on CNN, during a segment devoted to discrediting President Ronald Reagan’s conservative credentials and painting modern Republicans as far right, host Erin Burnett proclaimed that Republicans “would hate that guy,” and joined with CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley in suggesting that Democrat Hillary Clinton’s views on […]

Blogger Charles Pierce: Trump ‘One Of The Purest Products’ Of America’s ‘Loud…Stupid’ Reagan Era

August 14, 2015 by


By Tom Johnson ~ There’s going to be a Top Gun sequel, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous is coming back, and Bloom County has already returned. Still, suggests Esquire blogger Charles Pierce, when it comes to things that have the 1980s written all over them, these days Donald Trump is the king of the […]

“Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”

June 12, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ On June 12, 1987, the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, speaking in Berlin, said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” It fell in 1989 and, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. From the end of World War Two in 1945, the United States had stood strong against the Communist […]

Remembering Reagan

June 4, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ To a lot of folks who recall Ronald Reagan’s two terms as President, 1981 to 1989, June 5th is a day that marks his passing in 2004. Nostalgia prompts us to think of it as a golden period of prosperity and memory tells us that it was also the closing decade […]

Sequester Roll Over, Part 2?

February 7, 2013 by


The Patriot Post ~ Will Republican ‘Leadership’ Bow to Obama? By Mark Alexander “The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” –Thomas Jefferson (1816) This week we honor the life of President Ronald Reagan, who inherited from his Democrat predecessor, […]

Comparing Two Inaugural Speeches, Reagan’s And Obama’s

January 20, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ A comparison between Ronald Reagan’s and Barack Obama’s first inauguration speeches reveals the gap between their understanding of the role of government and how much America has declined from January 1981 and January 2009. In 1981 Reagan told Americans that “These United States are confronted with an economic affliction of great […]

November 4, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba Certain dates take on a greater significance with the passage of time and surely, November 4th is one of them as it marks the day Ronald Reagan was elected President in 1980. He repeated that achievement on November 6th in 1984. Republicans in general and conservatives in particular look back on those […]

A Very Reagan Fourth of July

July 4, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba “Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but Democrats believe every day is April 15th” “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, […]

Why Reagan Triumphs Over Other Presidents, Even Today

February 6, 2011 by


From The Editors at Family Security Matters What always strikes us is how comfortable and secure Ronald Reagan was in himself, on the trail, in the Oval, in meetings with strangers in the Roosevelt Room, in the general give and take of a public life. This authentic wholeness of life made the ‘communicating’ so compelling, […]

Barack Obama, Shape-Shifter

February 5, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba With the advent of the centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birthday on Sunday, it was perhaps predictable that Time Magazine would photoshop a picture of Obama and Reagan as if they were standing together. “Why Obama (Hearts) Reagan” was the cover line. Obama would have been twenty years old when Reagan took office […]

Celebrating Reagan

January 20, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba This year marks the centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth on February 6, 1911, but I want to celebrate the anniversaries of his first and second inauguration, January 20, 1981 and January 21, 1985. Just as Reagan transitioned from being a liberal and a Democrat, his presidency did the same for me. What […]

The First Statement of Conservative Principles

February 25, 2010 by


By Mark Alexander “The Constitution, which at any time exists ’till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People, is sacredly obligatory upon all.” –George Washington It took the election of a “community organizer” and ideological Socialist “professor” Barack Hussein Obama to launch a popular resurgence of interest in constitutional Rule of […]

Lion of the Left

August 27, 2009 by


Alexander’s Essay “The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families. … Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics.” –John Adams Have you ever attended a funeral service out of respect for a friend or colleague, and left perplexed as to whom […]

George Bush Was The Worst President Ever!

June 17, 2009 by


The mainstream media is still ranting about how they consider George Bush to be the worst man ever to have been President. And if you didn’t know better, by listening to them you would think that Bush is about as smart as a bag of hammers. As for my thoughts about the mainstream media, I […]

American Minute – Prayer In Government

April 25, 2009 by


William J Federer’s American Minute. Beginning APRIL 25, 1789, every session of the U.S. Senate has opened with prayer. This was a continuation of the Continental Congress’ practice during the Revolution, as Franklin remarked in 1787: “In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayer […]

Exactly Wrong On The Economy

March 10, 2009 by


Newt Gingrich I’m beginning this week by doing something I don’t usually do: thanking the New York Times. Last week, this was the Times headline over a story about President Obama’s budget: “A Bold Plan Sweeps Away Reagan Ideas” And so I want to thank the New York Times for portraying the Obama budget for […]
