    Patrick called his new business venture Holiday Magic and set up company headquarters at 616 Canal St. in San Rafael. Although the company sold cosmetics, its actual moneymaker was signing up distributors. Those distributors bought products from Holiday Magic and had to sell that product in order to make a profit — or even hope to break even. *SNIP* Riding high on his business success, Patrick turned next to politics. In 1965, Patrick announced he was challenging Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination for California governor. The grandstanding, trash-talking businessman was a harbinger of the modern political era. He campaigned...

    CNN host Van Jones blasted President Joe Biden as being 'foggy' and 'meandering' during his Wednesday press conference and compared him to an Alzheimer's suffering Ronald Reagan. 'I think you have to be honest that you can be a foggy, meandering president. Say, like Reagan near the end, if you're winning,' Jones said during the evening newscast.

    During an appearance on FNC’s “Watters’ World,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) lamented the failures of Joe Biden’s presidency, adding that the governing coalition of Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was the worst in his lifetime. Graham also hammered Biden on foreign policy by claiming former President Jimmy Carter, considered by some to be a disastrous president on foreign policy, looked like former President Ronald Reagan, who hailed as a success, compared to Biden.

    Facebook has "permanently disabled" the ads account of a conservative children's book publisher, claiming that Heroes of Liberty – which has published books about Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, former President Ronald Reagan and author Thomas Sowell – violated the company's rules against "Low Quality or Disruptive Content." Facebook originally locked the ads account on Dec. 23, and after Heroes of Liberty appealed the ruling, the company permanently disabled the account. "The question is: is a children's biography of Ronald Reagan no longer permissible on Facebook? We don’t know. But apparently promoting one may well kill a business," Heroes...

    When asked to name the president who has done the best job over the past 40 years, a majority of Democrats name Barack Obama. Republicans, by contrast, are divided between a president who served in the 1980s – Ronald Reagan – and the one who left office this year, Donald Trump.

    Ronald Reagan was arguably the last truly great and transformative American President. His story starts in a small town in Illinois and ends with the fall of Communism. At the time, he was the oldest man to be President, showing Americans that advanced age didn’t mean diminished energy – he united a nation like few have before and none have since.

    The Hill ^ | 12/07/2021 | CHRIS TALGO
    For months, Biden administration officials have downplayed the current bout of inflation as “transitory,” suggesting it is only a temporary problem that will abate sooner rather than later. On Nov. 30, while appearing before Congress, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell delivered quite a different message, saying it is time to “retire” the word “transitory” when referring to the 6.2 percent rate of inflation – a 30-year high – that is ravaging the U.S. economy. According to Powell, “We tend to use [the word transitory] to mean that it won’t leave a permanent mark in the form of higher inflation. I...

    While America had been rocked by riots and assassinations when I was a kid, the first big political development in America that shocked me was the election of Ronald Reagan. He was a boob, a Hollywood actor, not even a very good one. At the time, just out of college, I did not really understand the darker forces that were behind his election—the racism and greed, the anti-government ideology that was really just a formula to enable the richest among us to make more and the most racist states to chart their own course.

    I read with interest and some amazement "The Ronald Reagan guide to the Joe Biden presidency" (Nov. 28). Jamelle Bouie of the New York Times maintains Biden's first year is comparable to Ronald Reagan's first year in 1981.The approval rating of both went down. Bouie, a young man born in 1987, could have no memory at all of Reagan. I was in the U.S. Senate during all of his tenure and remember well Reagan's remarkable first days and the year that followed. When Joe Biden's presidency began on Jan. 20, 2021, America's economy was actually doing fine considering that the...

    When a new poll this week revealed that the public continues to view Ronald Reagan as its favorite modern president, there were many satisfied nods in the Simi Valley, California, offices of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. It was the latest confirmation that the foundation that supports the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum has succeeded in keeping the Gipper’s spirit alive and relevant to America’s journey.

    WASHINGTON — Joe Biden turned 79 last week. He’s beginning to look his age. The president walks a little more stiffly now. His diction, once clear, sometimes sounds a little blurry. His syntax has always been ragged; that hasn’t changed. Like most of us, he gets tired at the end of a long day. At the U.N. climate summit in Scotland, he took his seat in the conference hall to hear the opening speeches and promptly appeared to doze off. None of this appears to be clearly affecting his job. Last week he signed a $1-trillion infrastructure bill, a feat...

    When former President Ronald Reagan made the difficult announcement in 1994 that he had Alzheimer's disease, he may have saved his daughter's life. Patti Davis, 69, writes in her new memoir, "Floating in the Deep End," that she was struggling with depression and even contemplating suicide at the time her father publicly revealed his condition in a letter to the nation. "That could have been the last straw, but instead, it gave me something to reach for and to focus on," Davis told NBC News special correspondent Maria Shriver on TODAY Thursday. "That pulled me out of my own despair."

    Today we remember all who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces; they deserve our respect, honor and gratitude.Sadly today’s military is not your Dad’s (or Mom’s) military. Rather than the proficient, disciplined, skilled and adept vets of yesteryear the overlords want current recruits to be woke and poked. They will turn our proud military into a joke unless steps are taken to reverse this foolishness. Don’t look to our current Commander in Chief to spearhead that effort.He seems to travel to the tune of a different piper altogether.Fortunately previous generations of men and women were able to carry on...
  • Joe Biden is taking a page from Ronald Reagan’s playbook in his meeting with Pope Francis

    President Joe Biden, who will meet Pope Francis at the Vatican on Oct. 29, is Catholic. The country’s first Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, visited the Vatican, too. But meetings between U.S. presidents and popes have been a staple of politics since the Kennedy era, whether the president was Catholic or not. Woodrow Wilson was the first sitting president to meet a pope, visiting Pope Benedict XV amid peace negotiations after World War I. Dwight Eisenhower met John XXIII as part of an international goodwill tour. Lyndon Johnson first met with Paul VI when the pontiff came to New York...
  • Too many Republicans misunderstand Reagan’s legacy

    Republicans debating what they should stand for often invoke Ronald Reagan as the ideal standard-bearer for the party. It’s a shame, then, that so many of them misunderstand the man. Reagan’s legacy is often articulated as a simple, policy-focused creed. Former Wisconsin governor Scott Walker immediately summarized that creed during a recent interview: “limited government, low taxes, strong national defense.” But Walker — who now heads the Young America’s Foundation, which owns the Reagan Ranch and the president’s boyhood home — also noted that these are timeless principles rather than ironclad prescriptions.

    Update – October 12, 2021 8:45 a.m. ET Young America’s Foundation is closely monitoring the Alisal Fire near Rancho del Cielo and taking all necessary precautions. This fire started on Monday, October 11, near the Alisal Reservoir and has covered more than 3,900 acres. The fire has closed Refugio Road and portions of Highway 101. It is spreading throughout an area that has not burned since 1955, and current conditions—high winds, warm temperatures, and low humidity—are fueling the fire’s spread. Darkness and winds stopped the tanker planes from being able to drop over the fire last night. Young America’s Foundation...

    With John Hinckley's bullet still lodged in his chest, President Ronald Reagan was rushed to George Washington University Hospital, which is about nine minutes from the Hilton hotel where he'd been shot. One of the surgeons who met him there was Dr. Benjamin Aaron, then chief of cardiothoracic surgery at GWU. Aaron would go on to remove what turned out to be an explosive "Devastator" bullet from the president -- though they didn't know that at the time.

    On Oct. 21, 1984, President Ronald Reagan was asked to give a summation as to why he should be re-elected at the end of his debate with Democratic challenger Walter Mondale. His meandering, unfocused response kicked off speculation that he was suffering from cognitive decline that only intensified in his second term. Here is part of it: “Several years ago, I was given an assignment to write a letter. It was to go into a time capsule and would be read in 100 years when that time capsule was opened. “I remember driving down the California coast one day. My...
