  • Meet Reagan Democrat Joe Biden

    The Hill ^ | 01-24-2023 | JOHN KENNETH WHITE
    During the 1980s, Ronald Reagan bestrode the political landscape like a colossus. After two Reagan landslides, the Democratic Party was on its heels, having lost one-in-four of their supporters to the popular Republican. Democrats took pains to study the so-called “Reagan Democrats” and learn what made them tick. Leading the charge was the Democratic Leadership Council, which advocated that the party abandon its Big Government, New Deal-like approach to problems and support a strong national defense and middle-class tax cuts. Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Joe Biden were among its prominent members who liked to call themselves “New Democrats.” Reagan...

    Stephen Colbert once again roasted House Republicans on Wednesday’s “The Late Show” for their ongoing inability to elect a Speaker of the House now for two whole days. But the host went a bit deeper and more pointed than usual during his ribbing, taking an amusing couple of seconds to imagine what it might be like for Republican hero Ronald Reagan in Hell. On Wednesday House Republicans failed, for the second day in a row, to elect a Speaker of the House. Leading Candidate Kevin McCarthy is bitterly opposed by the extremist “Freedom Caucus” of Trump supporters, who have been...

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's acting chops were apparent during his historic address to a joint meeting of Congress Wednesday night, according to former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, who drew a parallel to former U.S. President Ronald Reagan's ability to capture audiences. "We should remember that [Zelenskyy] was an actor," Petraeus told Fox News Digital. "He knows how to do this. Just as Ronald Reagan was the great communicator, Zelenskyy is as well." But Zelenskyy's career as an entertainer prior to being elected president does not undermine his credibility, Petraeus said. "You can't fake this," he said. "We used to...

  • Dan Lauria To Play Tip O’Neill In Ronald Reagan Biopic

    Dan Lauria will play former Speaker of the House Thomas “Tip” O’Neill in the upcoming biopic Reagan. He’ll play opposite Dennis Quaid, who plays the 40th president. In a statement, director Sean McNamara said, “He and Dennis have the chemistry needed to portray Reagan and O’Neill as two politicians who were respectful adversaries.” In Washington, the 1980s friendship between Reagan and O’Neill has long been viewed as a contrast to recent decades, as partisan rifts have gotten more personal.
  • Ukrainian politician who idolizes Reagan tries to win over today’s Republicans

    KYIV, Ukraine — The seven-foot-tall bronze statue of Ronald Reagan bursting through the Berlin Wall was supposed to be here by now, standing in one of the Ukrainian capital’s prominent public squares. The monument was the brainchild of Maryan Zablotskyy, who grew up venerating Reagan in Lviv in western Ukraine — as many did in the post-Soviet years. Zablotskyy founded the Ayn Rand Center Ukraine to promote the libertarian author and covered his office walls with posters of Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill, with their quotes translated into Ukrainian. Now a member of his country’s parliament, Zablotskyy, 37, faces...

    I’m getting so tired of the Burleigh’s here ignoring history, so here’s the actual economic statistics of the two Presidents. Reagan came to office in January 1981, with the 30-year mortgage around 13.15%, while Trump took office in January 2017 with the mortgage rate at 4.08%. In Reagan’s day, the Federal Reserve did not pump ludicrous amounts of money into the economy with asset purchases; in fact, the opposite was true. The Fed was tightening so tightly that Reagan lost the midterms badly because of it. Reagan had to endure two years of Volcker’s policies to fight inflation, so let’s...
  • On Trump vs. DeSantis, Ronald Reagan shows the way

    Looking ahead to 2024, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Republican Party should take their cues from former President Ronald Reagan. After Republicans’ disappointing midterm performance, a showdown between DeSantis and former President Donald Trump seems certain. Trump has already begun taking shots at DeSantis, calling for him to disavow a 2024 run as a sign of “loyalty” and to “wait his turn.” But what good would that do for the conservative movement? Indeed, any true MAGA faithful should welcome and support a trial by fire from other rising stars of the Right. It’s the best way to ensure that...

    I will always be grateful for the presidency of Donald Trump and, if he is the GOP nominee for president in 2024, I will support him.

    The British pound hit a record low against the dollar on Monday after UK Prime Minister Liz Truss, a fan of “trickle-down economics,” announced a sweeping spending and tax cut plan to rescue the British economy from recession on Friday. What’s happening: Investors were taken aback by the new government’s choice to institute its largest tax cut in 50 years while boosting government spending and borrowing with inflation near 40-year highs. Citibank analysts called the decision a “huge, unfunded gamble for the UK economy.” Markets dropped precipitously on the news. But Truss took a cue from former US President Ronald...

Now, she is pushing for one thing and one thing only: to indict Trump so that he can never run for President again. But, Mark sees through her vindictive wall of hate. And he's setting the record straight while exposing Liz for the liar that she is.

    Question: Before Donald Trump, who was the last Republican president who didn't appoint at least one pro-choice Supreme Court justice? Answer: Herbert Hoover. This article will mainly be about how Donald Trump broke an almost-50-year trend of Republican leaders using and discarding their pro-life base. But first, let me briefly comment on a different issue that came to the fore early in Trump's presidency. Back in December of 2017, Donald Trump announced that the U.S. embassy in Israel would be moving to Jerusalem. This made a lot of people angry. The press and the political establishment condemned it as a...

    When the late Ronald Reagan assumed the office of the presidency in early 1981, one of the first groups clamoring for a meeting was a panel of Reform rabbis who wanted to discuss abortion. Now, this could have been a beautiful moment in both American history, the U.S. then at age 205, and in Jewish history, then at age 3297. The Jewish People have fought for the rights of babies in the womb and after birth since the days of the Romans who allowed the father, as paterfamilias, to kill an unwanted baby within the first month of life. Back...

    How did John Rutledge know Reaganomics would be such a smashing success? In December 1981 the Journal ran a contrarian op-ed by Mr. Rutledge, then president of Claremont Economics Institute. It was the most prescient prediction by an economist I have ever read. Mr. Rutledge predicted that inflation would decline faster than expected; that interest rates would fall, not rise, despite the growing deficit; and the economy and financial markets wouldn’t slump, but soar. It all happened.

    Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., lit into the “weirdos” that he said are tearing the United States apart, in a fiery speech at the Reagan Foundation that connected the hyperbolic political debates of the last few years with the global threats facing the nation. The Nebraska Republican ripped into “performance artists” on the far left and far right who have dominated politics for close to a decade, saying they’re more focused on getting likes and retweets for themselves on social media than on preserving the United States’ standing as a global superpower amid new threats from adversaries like China.

    Would-be assassin John Hinckley Jr. will go free June 15 A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has granted unconditional release to would-be assassin John Hinckley Jr., who in 1981 shot then-president Ronald Reagan and three others. U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman approved Hinckley's unconditional release during a Wednesday morning hearing and wished the gunman well, according to reporters on hand for the proceedings. Though the threat to the then-president's life was downplayed at the time, the shooting nearly killed Reagan and left two others with permanent injuries. Wednesday's release order captures the sharp pro-defendant turn of many courts at a...
