    The Tea Party zealots who haven’t learned from their mistakes in 2010 and 2012 are trying their best to screw up the GOP’s chances to win the Senate this fall. Where does the Tea Party find these people to run in primaries? Most important, why do they offer them up as legitimate Republican candidates? The Tea Party bosses have been listening to too much talk radio. They seem to think that what makes a good Republican candidate is someone who sounds like a talk radio host. But talk radio is all about bombast and attracting callers, not about winning elections....

Reagan spoke from the Young Israel in New York, at an event dedicated to the memory of the Righteous Gentile Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust. The event was organized by Dr. Joseph Prager, who has been tireless in his efforts to strengthen the State of Israel. “I think that the US has put Israel in a very tough situation, having to...

    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.

    America has almost 12 million illegal immigrants. Many of them came here on visas and never left. But about 60 percent of them walked in from just one country -- Mexico. Though the stalled Obama Economy has caused about 900,000 to go home since 2007, there are still about 6 million Mexicans living in the United States who've sneaked across our borders. Everyone from Marco Rubio to John McCain and our golfer in chief are trying to figure out how to deal with the illegal immigrants we have already and prevent future waves of Mexican migrants.

    Our failure in chief gave us his annual blurred vision of America again Tuesday night. Based on his State of the Union message, Barack Obama’s eyesight is as ideologically impaired as ever. Despite four years of failure, he still sees only one road America can go down to regain its economic health. Not down the capitalist road of free enterprise and liberty that made us the richest country in history. He wants to continue down the socialist road to more federal government -- which means more Obama taxes, more Obama spending, more Obama debt and more Obama government programs to...

    My father, Ronald Reagan, battled successfully to simplify the tax code but his work has been largely undone. The arrogance of those who use the tax code to manipulate citizen behavior and Congressional ambitions for personal advancement have again corrupted the already destructive income tax system. It will fall to the American people to once again reject unfair taxation that favors the mighty at the expense of the public. These 237 years after the Boston Tea Party and 31 years after the tax revolt that contributed to the election of my father as President, America is again rejecting “taxation without...

    On Feb. 6, former President Ronald Reagan would have celebrated his 99th birthday. Since he's thought of as a conservative icon, some have wondered what he would have thought of the modern conservative movement, specifically the tea parties and the rise of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If you listen to Reagan's son Ron, who has recently appeared on MSNBC's "Hardball" and HLN's "The Joy Behar Show," and tends to have a left-of-center perspective, one might think Reagan would have looked down upon the tea party protests and Palin. That's not the case according to his other son Michael. Michael...

    LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10 -- "I strongly disagree with my brother, Ron Reagan's assertions that our father, Pres. Ronald W. Reagan, would not support the Tea Party Movement in this country and Sarah Palin's activism, if he were alive today. "Pres. Reagan championed freedom throughout the world. He believed in the power of the people. His fundamental core beliefs about individual freedoms and liberties, and against government intrusion into the lives of citizens, were foremost on his agenda. "I believe he would embrace the Tea Party Movement, if he were alive today, and support the work of Sarah Palin, Scott...

    VAN NUYS -- Ronald Reagan's 31-year-old grandson was arrested Thursday in Van Nuys, police said. Cameron Reagan, the son of political radio host Michael Reagan, was taken into custody for resisting arrest after officers were dispatched to the 4700 block of Allot Avenue about 12:20 a.m., said Los Angeles police Officer April Harding of the Media Relations Section. It was not immediately known why officers went to the home. Officers saw Reagan leaving the rear door of the residence and attempted to stop and talk to him, Harding said. Reagan was "very uncooperative and belligerent, and he was arrested for...

  • Sarah Palin Plagiarizes Newt Gingrich? (attack of the RINO's)

    Last week, when introducing Ronald Reagan's son, Michael, to a crowd in Anchorage, Alaska, Gov. Sarah Palin delivered a speech that made news for its stinging criticism of President Obama's economic stimulus package. Further analysis of the speech, however, suggests that Palin lifted many of its central ideas, and the way they were worded, from fellow conservative (and presumptive competitor in the 2012 race for president) Newt Gingrich. It appears that much of Palin's text was inspired by an article that Gingrich and Craig Shirley published in 2005 in the Manchester Union Leader, titled "Republicans Need to Relearn Lessons of...

    Radio host Michael Reagan, whipped up by Britain's ban on conservative shock talker Michael Savage, has a message for London: You're chicken. Reagan, eldest son of the Gipper, says governments like London's are afraid of Muslim radicals. "They are trying to placate them," he says of the ban on Savage, who has ranted against Muslims. "They are saving their own skin by doing what they did to Savage." Of course, he adds, it probably helped Savage in England. "Most of the people in the United Kingdom probably didn't even know him," he says. "Now everyone in the U.K. is listening...

    Nancy Pelosi is watching California's Prop 1A intently. In only a hundred days and change, President Barack Obama has committed $6.5 trillion to waste, fraud, and abuse. That’s $6,500,000,000,000.00, which is more than all the costs of World War I and World War II combined. And you think it can’t get worse? Believe me, it can. Things have gotten so bad, that even in my home state of California a Republican Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is urging support for a massive $16 billion tax hike which is deceptively masquerading as a measure to put a lid on out-of-control government spending. You...
