    Michael Reagan — the son of former president and Republican icon Ronald Reagan — said he would not be voting for Donald Trump during California's GOP primary on Tuesday. And his late father probably wouldn't, either. “I will not be Voting for Trump tomorrow in the Calif.Primary,” Reagan tweeted Monday at Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.
  • Ronald Reagan’s Son: My Dad Wouldn’t Support Trump

    Monday saw many of Donald Trump's fellow Republicans express their displeasure at his comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, whom Trump says can't make an impartial ruling in a lawsuit involving Trump University because of his Mexican heritage. Newt Gingrich called his attacks "inexcusable," and Paul Ryan said the comments are "based on reasoning I don't relate to." But the GOP front-runner also received a rebuff from beyond the grave from one of the most important Republican figureheads of all time: Ronald Reagan. Okay, so Reagan didn't actually manifest to dissuade voters from supporting Trump — instead, his son Michael Reagan...

    Trump people kill me. They've been whining for weeks about how the Republican Party primary system works. They say it's rigged because their hero is pulling in the most votes and the most delegates but still might not win the nomination. They say it's all very simple: Trump's getting the most votes and therefore it's only fair that the person with the most votes from the people should win the nomination. As I tweeted earlier this week, if that's the way Trump's followers think, then they should all be supporters of Al Gore. In the 2000 election Gore got 540,000...

    "You can't be a Trump Republican and a Ronald Reagan Republican." That's the tweet I sent to Jeb Bush the other day, when virtually the entire planet was united in bashing Donald Trump's call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration to the USA. I also tweeted another obvious truth, "If the Republican Party doesn't dump Donald Trump, the American people will.

    resident Obama's reaction to the horrible terrorist attacks in Paris has been strange - and disturbing. Instead of rallying the country and calling for the United States to lead the fight to wipe out the Islamic State, what did he do first? He took pot shots at Republicans for their reluctance to open our borders to thousands of Syrian refugees. He even said some Republicans were helping ISIS recruit new fighters by suggesting that the United States should give preference to Christian refugees over Muslims. We're stuck with Obama and his failed leadership for another 13 months. Meanwhile, we'll have...

    Michael Reagan: My Father Would Be Appalled at Trump By Greg Richter | 10 Sep 2015 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has compared himself to Ronald Reagan, but the Republican icon would be "appalled" at the way Trump acts, Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV. Trump's personal attacks on fellow candidates, including the recent Rolling Stone report of him talking about Carly Fiorina's appearance, go too far, said Reagan, a radio talk show host and son of the former president. Reagan said he hopes Trump's actions hurt him not only with women voters, but with all voters. "What he's done is...

In 1986, Reagan ordered airstrikes against terrorist and military targets in Libya after two American servicemen were killed in the bombing of a nightclub in Berlin that was linked to the North African country. Libya had also killed five Americans when it attacked airports in Rome and Vienna. “For us to ignore by inaction, the slaughter of American civilians and American soldiers, whether in nightclubs or airline...

    It’s hard to believe, but America hasn’t had a budget since Barack Obama took over the White House and Harry Reid took over the Senate. Why aren’t Republicans using this ongoing travesty as a weapon in their seemingly hopeless congressional fight to defund Obamacare? Every American understands what a budget is. Every family has to have one. Why not the country? It’s a constitutional issue, yet no one cares. Instead of a federal budget, what we’ve been getting under the Reid/Obama regime for five years has been a series of continuing resolutions to fund our bloated government.

    IBD Editorials ^ | February 4, 2011 | MICHAEL REAGAN
    If liberals had supported Ronald Reagan the actor, they wouldn't have had to deal with Ronald Reagan the politician. In 1954, my father Ronald Reagan began hosting a weekly TV series, "General Electric Theater." The show aired Sunday nights at 9 on CBS, and consistently ranked in the top 10. Dad hosted the show and appeared as an actor in a number of episodes. Nancy made sure we watched it every week. Under my father's contract with General Electric, he toured the country by train and visited GE factories, local chambers of commerce and civic groups. The thousands of speeches...

    Ronald Reagan’s conservative son called his liberal half-brother “an embarrassment” Saturday for speculating in a new memoir that their father suffered from Alzheimer’s disease while president.“Ron, my brother was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother,” Michael Reagan posted on Twitter. “My brother seems to want [to] sell out his father to sell books,” he added in another tweet.The sibling tension bubbles over just three weeks before Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday, which will kick off a year of events to honor the 40th president.In “My Father at 100,”...

    USA Today reports...In a new book -- and an interview on ABC's 20/20 -- President Ronald Reagan's son says he saw evidence of his father's Alzheimer's disease back during his years in the White House. "There was just something that was off, I couldn't quite put my finger on it," Ron Reagan said in 20/20 interview airing Friday night. The younger Reagan said his father often didn't seem sharp during their political debates.

    SARAH PALIN FACEBOOK ^ | Monday, December 6, 2010 at 11:13pm | SARAH PALIN
    Do insolvent states actually believe other states should bail them out? In June 2009, I was invited to introduce Michael Reagan at an event in Anchorage. In my remarks as Governor of Alaska, I warned against President Obama’s debt-ridden stimulus bill and its effect on all our state budgets. I believed that the bill’s benefits would be limited because government would grow exponentially, and I warned that the package was equivalent to a federal bribe with fat strings attached that created new unfunded mandates for state governments. At the time, most state legislatures, including Alaska’s, chose to ignore that warning....

    Fox News | 11/09/10 | Megyn Kelly
    Sorry for the vanity, but did anyone see Megyn Kelly's interview with Michael Reagan in the noon (MST) hour? I've searched for a post here, as well as for a link to the interview at Fox News, to no avail. He was "handicapping" GOP Presidential contenders for 2012, and essentially seemed to put Huckabee at the head of the field, and basically said Sarah hasn't a chance because she's "too polarizing."

    PALM BEACH POST ^ | October 6; 2010 | Jose Lambiet
    Former vice-presidential hopeful and Alaska governor Sarah Palin is scheduled to spend today in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach as she fulfills a promise she made to local Internet entrepreneur Chris Ruddy after the two hit it off at the Kentucky Derby in May. Although Ruddy didn’t comment, several sources are telling me the comely Conservative pol, an inspiration for many members of the Tea Party, is expected at the Village Boulevard offices of, Ruddy’s West Palm-based political website. There, Palin is scheduled to be interviewed by GOP pundit Michael Reagan, former Prez Ronald Reagan’s son, during the...

    The Reagan Report ^ | Michael Reagan
    Having plunged the nation into a deep financial crisis with his wild and unrestrained spending of money we do not have -- on things the nation does not need -- President Obama is now proposing to spend even more, claiming that this time it will work. On Monday, he called on his pet Democratic-controlled Congress to turn on the money spigot once more, insisting that this time it will stimulate an economy in the doldrums and create jobs in a time of rising unemployment. According to The New York Times, he asked Congress to appropriate vast sums of borrowed money...

    Human Events ^ | 2008-02-01 | Michael Reagan
    Until last night, when I watched the Republican debate, I had no idea how much John McCain dislikes me and just about everybody else but Rudy Giuliani, who if you believe The New York Times is a pretty good hater himself. As I watched McCain and Governor Romney go at it during the debate at the Reagan Library I was struck by the huge gap that separates McCain -- whose contempt for his fellow humans is patently obvious -- and my dad, Ronald Reagan, who had nothing but the deepest affection and respect for the American people. The feeling is...
