  • Trump slams FBI for not warning him Manafort was under investigation

    The Hill ^ | 08/01/18 | John Bowden
    President Trump went after the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI on Wednesday, arguing that his 2016 campaign team should have been warned that campaign chair Paul Manafort was under investigation at the time. In a tweet, Trump questioned why law enforcement didn't "tell me" that Manafort was being investigated at the time of his hiring, noting that his former aide had previously worked for GOP figures such as President Reagan and Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.). "Paul Manafort worked for Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other highly prominent and respected political leaders. He worked for me for a...
  • The conservative position: Free trade or protectionism? [Reagan was a Protectionist]

    In a trade war, we are told, foreign manufacturers are not affected at all by tariffs imposed by the U.S. government. Only U.S. consumers will pay more. Yet, mysteriously, if a foreign country imposes tariffs on U.S. exports, it is a catastrophe for U.S. manufacturers and “farmers” (giant conglomerates). So we are told that U.S. exporters will suffer from a trade war. However, foreign producers importing to the U.S. will not be affected in the slightest. That is not sound analysis, but propaganda. Saying that tariffs hurt U.S. consumers and U.S. producers, but tariffs have no effect at all on...

  • Flashback: Reagan Flubs Reykjavik Summit

    Rolling Stone ^ | December 4, 1986 | WILLIAM GREIDER
    To Ronald Reagan and his entourage, the summit meeting in Iceland looked like the perfect photo opportunity. Three weeks before the midterm elections, Reagan would be pictured shaking hands with the smiling Russian in his Fifties fedora. The president would be portrayed in the media as an earnest peacemaker, diligently searching for ways to end the nuclear-arms race. This time, though, the photos turned out badly. When he emerged from his bargaining sessions with Mikhail Gorbachev, the president looked stung, like a small boy who had burned his fingers playing with a light socket. Reagan came home empty-handed from Iceland,...

    Metallicman ^ | June 2018 | editorial staff
    Do you remember what it was like going to High School in the 1970s? I do. I most certainly do. In fact, the older I get the more removed that I am from it. As time passes, it starts to look like some kind of a scene from “The Twilight Zone”. The truth is that the kind of life that I had growing up is really alien to the way kids grow up today. That is worrisome, and it really concerns me. When an American intern comes in to work for me, I am stunned just how absolutely helpless they...

    What a great July 4. The skies over America the Beautiful were filled with fireworks, and the Twittersphere was filled with three Democratic senators blowing themselves up. My U.S. senator Kamal Harris, Massachusetts' Elizabeth Warren and New York's Kirsten Gillibrand spent their holiday week attacking President Trump in speeches and tweets. It was rough stuff from three lefties who think they're going to be the next president and apparently think that tweeting like Trump is going to make their delusion come true. Sen. Harris of California warned her followers that Trump is planning to nominate someone who'll overturn Roe v....

We're going. So, if you've been there....what is Must See? Genghis Khan. Then what. Me and gramma talk politics quite a bit. We both leave the conversation laughing. Where should I push her to after Genghis Khan? 99. Thank You.

I got my wish in November of 2016. The kicker: THE BEST PRESIDENTS of my lifetime have had the first names of Ronald and Donald. Just a fun observation.....carry on.

    Mark Joseph, who is producing the biopic, met with 50 of the former president's friends, confidantes and cabinet members, including his pastor and the surgeon who saved his life after he was shot. Dennis Quaid has inked a deal to play President Ronald Reagan in a film expected to begin shooting in the fall, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The long-in-the works feature film will explore Reagan's life from boyhood through his presidency — of both the U.S. and the Screen Actors Guild — and he will be played as a young man by David Henrie, best known for his...

    Reagan’s daughter: My dad would be ‘appalled’ by Trump presidency Ronald Reagan would be “appalled” by the Trump presidency, daughter Patty Davis tells the Washington Post. In a letter written on the occasion of the anniversary her father’s June 5, 2004 death, Davis said Reagan would be “pretty horrified at where we’ve come to.” “He would be appalled and heartbroken,” she wrote, “at a Congress that refuses to stand up to a president who not only seems ignorant of the Constitution but who also attempts at every turn to dismantle and mock our system of checks and balances.” Davis, 65,...

    America loses its greatest scholar of Russia and communism. The most respected academic authority on the Russian Revolution, 20thcentury communism, and the Cold War has died. He was Richard Pipes, longtime professor of Russian history at Harvard, and a remarkable man. Where to start with an adequate tribute to Professor Pipes? I’ll start with some biographical observations and then finish with personal reflections. Richard Pipes was born in Poland on July 11, 1923. As a 16-year-old Jew at the time of Hitler’s invasion, Pipes mercifully escaped, thanks to a clever and shrewd father. He credited not only his father but...

    Jon Meacham, presidential scholar and author of "The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels," says that President Trump is in office because "we have a climate of fear in the country" which he "took advantage of" over the course of the 2016 campaign. "Politicians are far more often mirrors of who we are than they are molders. That's why the molders are so extraordinary. Franklin Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan -- those are different kinds of figures," Meacham said on CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "I think that President Trump in many ways is president because we...

Rather ironically, five days before the 2016 election intelligence agent provocateur Stefan Halper gave an interview to Sputnik News where he outlined his agenda; in hindsight the aggregate agenda of the Obama administration: 2016 was not CIA/FBI Agent Halper’s first endeavor into manipulating the outcomes of U.S. political elections. Indeed manipulating elections it is a specific skill-set within his curriculum vitae. As noted in a New York Times article 35-years ago: 1983 – […] An operation to collect inside information on Carter Administration foreign policy was run in Ronald Reagan’s campaign headquarters in the 1980 Presidential campaign.

    ABU DHABI -- Arab leaders love the idea that President Trump is ready to give Iran a punch in the nose. But is this White House truly serious about challenging Iranian power in the Middle East? The evidence is mixed, at best. I heard passionate enthusiasm for Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal from prominent Arabs gathered here last weekend for a conference sponsored by the Beirut Institute. They know that scuttling the nuclear deal could be dangerous, and that the region is already a powder keg. But many Arab leaders don't seem to care. To put...

    We have lost our culture to the Cultural Marxists and, increasingly, our liberty to the Rogue Ruling Class™. It is easy to despair. But, in the late 1970s, it was also hard to believe we could defeat Soviet Communism. Then three courageous people—Pope John Paul II, Margaret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan—changed the world. Reflecting on that, Robert Reilly describes what we must do today to win our war: Language, then, and the restoration of its relationship with reality were critical to the Communist collapse. This was no small feat since, for many in the West, words had lost their meaning....
