    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - Tired of all this Winning yet? – Americans for Tax Reform reports that, with Home Depot and Starbucks joining the party, the list of large companies offering employee bonuses and raises in response to the Trump tax reform has now grown to more than 250. Somewhere, San Fran Nan is having a nervous breakdown about all these “crumbs” being handed out. - Where in the world is Hillary Clinton? I noted the mysterious absence from public appearances by the Pantsuit Princess a couple of weeks back, but here we are, now...

  • Face it: Donald Trump IS "Rogue One"

    With a number of loonie lefties trying desperately to find ANY straw to grasp telling them that Trump and his voters are out of touch, the latest is the notion that the new "Star Wars" film "Rogue One" somehow is a parable about the (good) Rebels fighting the evil Trump empire. Nothing could be sillier. Anyone watching the film can see instantly, Trump IS "Rogue One" and the Force put together. The "Rogue One" title comes from the mission to steal the Death Star plans. When asked what their call sign is as they leave Yavin, the nervous pilot says,...
  • Larry Schweikart, FR's "LS", should take a bow.

    Larry Schweikart, our own 'LS', kept assuring us -- often with hard facts and polling information -- the we would win. He would post little 'insider baseball' tidbits that gave me -- among other people -- hope. In the onslaught of biased polling, I became rather dispirited. I fully intended to vote no matter what, but I went into the evening almost convinced ClinSatan would steal it. However, during the election itself, he kept popping up and telling us to stop being so *wrecked* every time a state flipped back to Dem. I kept looking up LS, and reading his...

    Facebook ^ | July 14, 2016 | Larry Schweikart (FReeper "LS")
    THE END OF ROBOTS, MORE OR LESS: I have been thinking a lot about this lately. Everywhere I go service is utterly horrible, even with companies once known for service. 1) people don't listen. No matter how clearly you state an order, explain your need, people don't listen. I'm not just talking about fast-food---it's everywhere. I spent hours with a saleswoman for a new home we were building. I stated again and again, "We have plenty of money for a down payment, but my monthly payment CANNOT be more than $X". Again and again she would mindlessly print out a...

    I have been ruminating on Trump's success with the media for many months. Why don't things "stick" to Trump that would doom other candidates? The latest "controversy" with insisting that a Hispanic judge may have an agenda finally clarified this for me. First, if one believes anything the Left says, then we MUST believe that everything is seen through a prism of race and class and gender---otherwise why even have a "wise Latina" on the USSC? Why would she bring anything that a "wise" Pole, or a "wise" Fiji-an, or a "wise" Navajo wouldn't bring? The Left is hoisted on...

    Heartland Institute ^ | May 27, 2015 | Nancy Thorner
    The final Heartland Author Series event before The Heartland Institute moves its headquarters from One South Wacker Drive, #2740, to its new facility in Arlington Heights was held on Thursday, May 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Featured was Larry Schweikart, who along with co-author Michael Allen, wrote the newly released 10th anniversary edition of “A Patriot’s History of the United States: From Columbus’s Great Discovery to America’s Age of Entitlement.” It is irrefutable that during past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way America’s past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism,...
  • Tried to quit writing

    05/15/2015 1:52:18 PM PDT · by LS · 26 replies
    Well folks, for about four years I haven't written anything, except a few movie reviews and some scripts. I had a strong calling to give up (I thought permanently) writing books. All that time, however, it kept nagging at me that the biography treatments of Ronald Reagan just were not satisfying. So, I feel "released" now to begin a new book project, perhaps my final book: a biography of our greatest 20th century president. I have already written a script that Arc Entertainment/Victory Pictures (who did the Palin movie) have agreed to produce called "The Lifeguard: Ronald Reagan and his...

    Larry Schweikart recently spoke at the Heritage Foundation about the newly released 10th anniversary edition of the book he co-authored with Michael Allen, “A Patriot’s History of the United States: From Columbus’s Great Discovery to America’s Age of Entitlement.” “A Patriot’s History” had a rather unusual journey from publication to fame; becoming a No.1 New York Times bestseller six years after its publication.Schweikart, a history professor at the University of Dayton, wrote the book in response to what he calls a lack of textbooks that “dealt accurately and fairly with American history.” Many of the existing classroom materials, he said,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | August 5, 2013 | Larry Schweikart and Burton W. Folsom Jr.
    Entrepreneurs built our roads, rails and canals far better than government did. For almost five years now, President Obama has been making the argument that government "investments" in infrastructure are crucial to economic recovery. "Now we used to have the best infrastructure in the world here in America," the president lamented in 2011. "So how can we now sit back and let China build the best railroads? And let Europe build the best highways? And have Singapore build a nicer airport?" In his recent economic speeches in Illinois, Missouri, Florida and Tennessee, the president again made a pitch for government...

    One of the lines you’ll hear periodically is that President Obama’s chances look better than some polls might suggest, because he’s running up his vote totals in early voting. Larry Schweikart points out that at least in Ohio, the early vote is much closer than it was in 2008.

    Big Hollywood ^ | Friday, June 4, 2010 | Larry Schweikart
    Most (good) history books correctly portray the collapse of communism as due to the efforts of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II. But there were other subversive elements at work, not the least of which was rock and roll, which bled through the Iron Curtain at an unstoppable level. In Seven Events that Made America America, I examined rock’s part in not only providing a source of hope and optimism for those youth locked under communism’s grip, but also how it became a subversive force within the East Bloc. Through interviews with American rock and rollers of...
