  • Ronald Reagan: PROUD to Be Irish!

    As House Speaker for 6/8 of the Reagan years, bombastic spendaholic Tip O'Neill was one of the fiercest opponents of the Gipper's entire agenda, fighting it tooth-and-nail to the end. He even called Reagan a 'cheerleader for selfishness' and went so far as to personally attack him as 'most ignorant man that has ever inhabited the White House'. Not one to be easily outwitted -but showing considerably more class and good humor- Reagan observed parallels between the blobular O'Neill and the then-trendy Pac-Man video game, as 'a round thing that gobbles up money'. Yet despite the professional animosity, Reagan often said...

    When Ronald Reagan was president, the leader of the opposition was Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill, a liberal Boston Democrat. The two Irish-American glad-handers had both been FDR-loving New Dealers, born less than two years apart. They dined together, partied together and swapped Irish jokes. But they didn’t like each other. Once Reagan was asked if he had heard about Pac-Man. He said, “Someone told me it was a round thing that gobbles up money. I thought it was Tip O’Neill.”

    As House Speaker for most of Ronald Reagan's two presidential terms, ultra-liberal spendaholic Tip O'Neill was one of the fiercest opponents of the entire Reagan agenda, fighting it tooth-and-nail for six years.

    The moment that made Gingrich was when he got Tip O'Neill so all fire mad that Tip made statements in violation of House rules and had his words "taken down," a major parliamentary slap on the hindquarters. You can watch the C-SPAN video here: Tip O'Neill's words taken down. Now, this week we've heard the RINOs try to slam Gingrich's attitude to Reagan's foreign policy vis-a-vis the communists, trying to claim that when the liberals in the House were criticizing Reagan's policy and threatening to cut off funding for the Contras, Gingrich was right along them agreeing with it.

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 — Seven years ago this month, President Bill Clinton's economic advisers told him Mexico was hours away from economic default and perhaps chaos on the streets. Mr. Clinton ordered an unpopular multibillion-dollar bailout, over the objections of Congress, but with the support of a prominent Republican governor, George W. Bush of Texas. When Argentina barreled toward a similar default in recent weeks, it was Mr. Bush who had to make the bailout call — and his decision was to let Argentina suffer the consequences of its own economic mismanagement. His aides argue that the circumstances were somewhat ...

    O’Neill retired as the FBI’s top terrorist expert. He worked for the FBI for 31 years. The FBI appointed him as the chief of the bureau’s International Terrorism Operations. During his time with the FBI, O’Neill worked on many of the world’s deadliest terrorist attacks, including the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole and the 1998 attacks on the U.S. embassies in Africa. O’Neill’s first terrorism case was, in fact, the 1993 truck bombing of the World Trade Center. After retiring from the FBI, O’Neill took a new job. That job was the security director for the World Trade Center....

    Democracy Project ^ | February 26, 2008 | Bruce Kesler
    One of the core charges that John Kerry’s media-aided campaign made in 2004 and since to delegitimize the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth is that its leader John O’Neill, who had opposed Kerry in 1971, was a creation of Richard Nixon’s White House. I was there, and know better. Until now, the central purported prop for the charge went unrebutted. Charles “Chuck” Colson has now spoken up. It’s time for reputable media, and even Kerry’s advocates if they have any integrity, to cease this charge. Like a dime-novel legend, based on little, this charge has been frequently repeated and embellished...

    If John Kerry had been elected President of the United States in November 2004, especially with the incoming majority Democrat Congress, it is highly likely that Iraq would be in the midst of a civil war, Iran’s regional influence would have increased, Israel would be in more jeopardy than it is now, two Supreme Court seats would be occupied by clones of John Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg instead of by John Roberts and Samuel Alito, judicial decisions would have given even more “rights” to enemy combatants, domestic entitlements and earmarks would have skyrocketed, the Bush tax cuts would be...

    ALL POLITICS is local, Tip O'Neill famously said, and it surely doesn't get any more local than when a 6,000-pound slab from a project championed by the late House speaker falls on a 38-year-old newlywed from Jamaica Plain, crushing her to death as her husband drives her to the airport. O'Neill died in 1994, but the political culture he epitomized is alive and well and enshrined in the Big Dig, a slough of corruption, callousness, and cover-ups that had become a synonym for government mismanagement long before it killed Milena Del Valle on July 10.

    Kate Zernike's story on the front page of the Memorial Day Sunday New York Times, "Kerry Pressing Swift Boat Case Long After Loss," is an unfortunate reminder of the Times's embarrassingly poor coverage of Kerry in the face of the Swift Boat Veterans' for Truth charges in the 2004 election. Now as then, the Times acts as if the issues involved were between Kerry's latest representations of his record and the "unsubstantiated" charges of the Swift Boat group. The Times used the term "unsubstantiated" more than twenty times during its election coverage and continues to make no discernable effort to...

    NEW YORK — The scandal engulfing the United Nations Procurement Department () now appears to be bottomless. It also shows signs of growing more sinister, especially where it involves a mysterious private company called IHC Services (), which did big business with the procurement department until it was removed from U.N. rosters in June. New details of how dark the scandal could prove to be have emerged from the private sale of IHC on June 3, 2005, just as the procurement scandal was about to break. It now appears that while doing business with the U.N., IHC had links both to Saddam...

    Twenty Years after TWA 847, No Lessons Learned By Debbie Schlussel Twenty years ago, this week, Hezbollah terrorists hijacked TWA Flight 847, and trampled Navy Diver Robert Stethem to death. Stethem's only crime was being American. The hijacking and murder was among the first televised Islamic terror attacks against Americans, unfolding on TV screens over 17 days. Twenty years later, disturbing kowtowing to Hezbollah terrorists shows we've learned nothing from Stethem's brutal murder at the hands of Islamic terrorists. On September 11, 2021, will it be worse? On June 15, 1985, Hezbollah hijackers seized the TWA flight in Athens. Identifying...

    First Lady wannabe Teresa Heinz Kerry had a good friend inside the Bush White House - former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, who, after he was fired, wrote a book that painted the president as an ignoramus who was itching to go to war with Iraq. "I have to mention how proud I am to share this podium today with my friend . . . fellow Pittsburgher, Paul O'Neill," Mrs. Kerry said while delivering the commencement address at Carnegie Mellon University last May. "Paul is a decisive, intelligent man who speaks his mind, and I have always admired that about...

He began contacting many Swift Boat people in January and February last year. At that time, I was in the hospital. I had given my wife a kidney for a transplant. I became a part of it in early to mid March. I was motivated by several things, the first and most important being a genuine fear of what would happen to our country, our national security, and our armed forces if John...

    Al Franken threw a little tizzy fit at CPAC. The onlookers didn't seem to phase Franken, who knew there were no TV cameras around, but he apparently didn't realize a photojournalist, Carrie Devorah, had her trusty Nikon in hand (see pictures below). On the other hand, perhaps Franken wouldn't have cared either way. Here's the story: Franken made a gutsy cameo appearance at last weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington. Talk-show host Michael Medved scheduled Franken for a 3 p.m. interview on Medved's radio show, which was broadcasting from CPAC's "radio row." Separately, Unfit for Command co-author John O'Neill...

    Journalist Ron Suskind is one-stop shopping for Bush administration castaways. But what if John DiIulio -- Suskind gave him a platform in Esquire magazine in 2002 to call the administration "the reign of the Mayberry Machiavellis" -- and Paul O'Neill had been shopping a conservative critique of Bush? Would Suskind have cracked open his notebook? Not likely. Few events excite liberal journalists more than the inevitable defection of an "insider" from a Republican administration, provided that the defector is a liberal who is telling the media what it wants to hear. What interests the Suskinds are not conservative defectors but...

    It is rare to have books exploring the legacy of a presidential administration still in its first term. It is rarer still to have the number of insider accounts that Americans have access to in 2004. “These books appear to be painting history before our eyes,” said Charlotte Abbott, news editor of Publishers Weekly. “No one in the industry of publishing can remember a time since Watergate when so many political books have come out and the public has been interested – and a lot of those Watergate titles came out after.” One of the reporters who first exposed Watergate,...

John O'Neill, a former Swift boat commander in Vietnam and co-author of an anti-Kerry Book, Unfit for Command, was a special guest at the gathering Saturday night at Billy Bob's Texas of about 100 veterans from throughout the United States.

    "Newsweek talks exclusively with John Kerry about why he lost" promised the cover story this New Year's week, and it turns out that Senator Kerry's reflections boil down to the Nixonian. "The pundits have never liked me," he said. "Is it the way I look? The way I sound?" The rest of the press hasn't done much better. Immediately after the campaign, they decided the election was won on "values." A few days later the consensus shifted like a school of fish. Mr. Kerry lost because, as Newsweek's Evan Thomas put it, "sitting presidents are never defeated in wartime." So...

Tommy Franks for retiring from honorable service to his country yet standing by his men in the public square. Senator Zell Miller put principle above party, to see his old friends and mentors turn on him one-by-one.

Very few – perhaps only one – can credibly claim to have helped pull the hand brake on a presidential campaign.

    KERRY FIT TO SUE 'UNFIT' AUTHOR November 18, 2004 -- LIBERAL loser John Kerry might be planning to strike back at John O'Neill, the "Unfit for Command" author who claims some of the credit for Kerry's defeat, sources say. In the book, published by Regnery not long before the election, O'Neill — who, like Kerry, commanded swift boats in Vietnam — attacked Kerry's war record and branded him a traitor. O'Neill sold over 800,000 copies and his group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, raised $25 million to battle the Kerry campaign and ran TV ads trashing the candidate. Former Sen....

    Of all the targets of vitriol and attempted ambushes during the presidential campaign, I most admired John O'Neill of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth for his calm determination to stand his ground on his charges against John Kerry's Vietnam service in Unfit for Command, the book he co-authored. O'Neill was called a ''liar'' to his face on a number of TV appearances, and, on an Oct. 14 ''Nightline,'' ABC-TV's Ted Koppel actually sent a crew to Vietnam to film alleged eyewitnesses in order to disprove one of the accounts -- how Kerry won his Silver Star -- in Unfit...

    To The Citizens Of Free Republic: We will never ever forget your support and help. Your threads not only encouraged us but kept the truth alive in a period when Big Media sought to suppress the story. Your e-mails and phone calls to Big Media at least shamed them. The thousands of contributions we got from you helped us to organize our website, produce our earliest ads, and keep the light flickering in the darkest of times. The English at Agincourt would have executed Kerry for meeting with the enemy and betraying them. In contrast, we found a true band...

    Remarkably, the coward, Lawrence O'Donnell, needs a surrogate to begin the process of making ammends for his hissy-fit performance on MSNBC's Scarborough Country last Friday night. Pat Buchanan read a prepared mea culpa statement on Monday night's Scarborough Country.

    In a new TV special, set to air later this week, John Kerry's fellow Swift Boat veterans have harsh words for the former "war hero." Captain George Elliott says he believes Kerry should have been removed from command, and possibly even thrown out of the Navy. Elliott was commander of Coastal Division 11, where Kerry spent his four short months of active duty in Viet Nam. Fellow Swift Boat vet Steve Gardner is even tougher – he says Kerry could well have been court-martialed, had the chain of command known then what they know now. These and other first-person interviews...
