  • Clown: Paul Krugman Celebrates Pandemic Year as ‘Year Reaganism Died’

    Leave it to the New York Times blowhard economist Paul Krugman to exploit the pandemic and dance on the imaginary grave on one of his oldest foes: Reaganism. Krugman declared in a new op-ed that “The government promised to help — and it did.” This was a pathetic attempt at repudiating late President Ronald Reagan’s famous 1986 warning: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help.” Krugman based his assessment on the federal government’s stimulus spending, including the recent 5,593-page pork-infested relief package. Krugman was just giddy about what...
  • Ronald Reagan on Prosperity: Free Enterprise Makes America Prosperous

    “America’s prosperity was not a gift from the government or anyone else. Free enterprise, not government, is the source from which our blessings flow.” I think that this quote by Ronald Reagan on prosperity just about perfectly sums up why we need to be mindful of government promises of prosperity. Yes, the government can implement policies that don’t constrain citizen action enough to limit wealth creation too much and we should always support politicians that promise those policies. But, frankly, any government action will only hurt the economy. The government might be here to help, but it’s like your idiot...
  • Ronald Reagan’s Near-assassin Should Not Roam Free

    It’s understandable if the American public has forgotten that a man who nearly assassinated a U.S. president walks freely among them; after all, it seems too unbelievable to be true. But John Hinckley Jr. — the man who put a bullet within an inch of President Ronald Reagan’s heart, who severely wounded and cut short the life of James Brady and who shot Secret Service agent Tim McCarthy and police officer Thomas Delahanty in March of 1981 — has more freedom than many men who have merely plotted such evil. Beginning with the mind-boggling verdict he received (not guilty by...
  • How Maureen Reagan 'Packed' the Supreme Court

    Watching the Senate confirmation hearing of Amy Coney Barrett reminded me of the promise my father made to my sister Maureen to put the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court. It's a great piece of POTUS-SCOTUS history I haven't told in many years. Democrats and the media said a lot of nice things this week about the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the liberal icon who in 1993 became the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court. But I don't remember hearing anyone - unfortunately, including the Republican senators - pay homage to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first...

    When Teddy Roosevelt ascended to the presidency after the assassination of William McKinley, a big business GOP political opponent exclaimed in disgust, “Now that damned cowboy is in the White House!”  This same reaction was widespread among the Republican establishment when Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, as he was a conservative, a conservationist and yes, a cowboy. Much like TR, Reagan also celebrated the outdoors, especially the American West. His favorite poet may have been Robert Service, a big, handsome man who penned poetry about the West. Reagan could recite “The Mountain and the Lake” at an invitation. Reagan...
  • Reagan Economist Art Laffer 'Very Optimistic’ on Rapid Economic Recovery

    NewsBusters ^ | 9/11/2020 | Joseph Vazquez
    Renowned economic advisor to late President Ronald Reagan Art Laffer remains very optimistic about a rapid economic recovery, which flies right in the face of the apocalyptic narratives put out by the media. Laffer concluded that once big states “get pro-growth, once they get the restrictions removed because the disease incidence is less, you’re going to get that economy continuing to boom. I think we’re perfectly poised for a very, very rapid, continued recovery in this economy. “I am very optimistic about the country and the economy,” Laffer said.

    While the city of Washington, D.C. has openly promoted tearing down statues of America’s Founding Fathers, Hillsdale College’s Liberty Walk stands in distinct contrast. Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in southern Michigan, hosts an increasing array of original statues honoring men and women who have stood courageously for freedom.Walking Hillsdale College’s Liberty Walk, one sees statues erected to founders such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as well as others who have fought for liberty and equality such as Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Ronald Reagan, and Winston Churchill. Hillsdale also has the only statue in North America of...

    Gag me with a Shining City! On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough slobbered over Joe Biden's acceptance speech at the DNC convention last night. Scarborough had the chutzpah to repeatedly refer to Biden's address as "Reaganesque." Scarborough failed to recognize the glaring irony in two of his statements: 1. "The focus wasn’t on a flurry of policy prescriptions from the 1984 Democratic convention." Of course not! Because if Biden had exposed his far-left positions—from pro-abortion extremism to support for the economy-destroying Green New Deal—it would have been unpalatable to most Americans.

    Today, America has a choice of two paths. We can embrace the foundational principles that created this nation of limited government and individual liberty. Or we can veer down the path of bigger, more intrusive government that promises to solve all our problems if we just turn over more of our freedom and our paychecks. The difference between the two paths recently has become even starker as those on the left have gotten more radical. They have sought to destroy the lives of those who disagree with them, rewrite history to teach our children that America was illegitimate from the...

    The Federalist ^ | August 7, 2020 | Scott J. Street
    Unlike Biden, Trump is delivering a clear and appealing message: Send kids back to school, support police officers, and get people back to work now. Last year, Joe BidenÂ’s path to the presidency seemed clear: Treat President Donald Trump as a historical anomaly whom Biden would replace, then restore American values, overcome petty politics, and get government working again. This message was designed to appeal both to Democrats, like me, and to Republican and Independent voters tired of the toxic political environment weÂ’ve suffered since 2016.That strategy initially worked well. Despite constant attacks from opponents and the press, by March...

    It was big news over the weekend: The Reagan Foundation was asking both President Trump and the Republican National Committee to stop using Ronald Reagan’s name in their fundraising. The Democrats and NeverTrumpers were very excited. They shouldn’t have been. The people presiding over the Reagan Foundation are a mix of NeverTrumpers and people who are part of the Bush family cabal. The Bush family and its supporters hate Trump. Their opinions about Trump’s campaign are as meaningful as the Democrat party’s views are. The Washington Post broke the story: The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute formally asked...

    In the 1940s, one man stood up for America. One man had the historical authority and understanding of what was happening in his country. Ronald Reagan changed the course of our nation. He was a force of nature. Reagan was hailed as “a one man battalion,” a one man wrecking crew, who defeated Communism in America. We are currently “besieged by subversives who are not inhibited by traditional moral constraints and are willing to practice deceit and even violence to further their ideological cause.” This statement by Dinesh D’Souza was in reference to Ronald Reagan’s years in Hollywood. It’s as...

    He was the subject of a recent book, “The Enigma of Clarence Thomas,” which led to a flurry of articles and book reviews on his life and legal thought. A new biographical documentary, made by the conservative filmmaker Michael Pack, airs Monday on PBS. For the project, the justice spoke to filmmakers for 30 hours — an astounding feat for a jurist who once went 10 years without asking a question from the bench. “He would have never said, ‘Gee whiz, I should be an icon,’” said Helgi Walker, a lawyer at the firm Gibson Dunn who clerked for Justice...

    Brand-new, nuclear powered, capable of carrying twice as many aircraft as most competing foreign carriers, and protected by an entire task force... the $6.2 billion USS Ronald Reagan seemed invincible leading up to an international war game exercise in 2005. It was a stunning blow then, and a complete shock, when - against all odds - a super stealth submarine from Sweden snuck past the USS Ronald Regan’s defenses and scored enough mock torpedo hits to sink it during *multiple* attack runs. The Americans never saw it coming… and never saw it leave… https://youtu.be/L26RZdmQ2nE
