  • Peter Bart: Ronald Reagan Would Have Hated Donald Trumpís Narcissistic Rag [Major Vomit Alert]

    The mounting intensity of Donald Trumpís war on the press confounds news veterans like me who remember Trumpís history as a media whore. During my 20 years as editor-in-chief of Variety, I knew Trump as an avid self-publicist who frantically sought loftier standing on Hollywoodís power pyramid. But hereís the rub: My perspective on Trump is shaped by my earlier relationship with another icon who also yearned to leverage showbiz fame into political power. Assigned to cover Ronald Reaganís first gubernatorial campaign for The New York Times, I had an inside seat to observe how a vastly different style of...

From the Detroit Free Press: Now, the state of Michigan has ordered the Dresslers to stop their latest effort to save the remaining summer home from destruction: The sand is protected as a "critical dune area," so trucking it away is forbidden. "They're killing us," said David Dressler, 58. "I'm...

    "The more things change, the more they stay the same."(French proverb) While scanning YouTube videos, I came across an appearance by Ronald Reagan on "The Tonight Show," hosted by Johnny Carson. The year was 1975 and Reagan was "between jobs," having left office as governor of California, where he served for eight years, but not yet president. He would challenge Gerald Ford for the Republican nomination in 1976, barely losing at the nominating convention, but setting himself up for what would be a successful run in 1980. What fascinates about Reagan's appearance with Carson is how little has changed in...

    To believe, in the 1980s, that Ronald Reagan was going to blow up the world may have been merely peculiar. To believe so today is a symptom of raging Reagan Derangement Syndrome. And yet here we are, with The Reagan Show, a new documentary rehashing the paranoid style of Reaganography, set for limited theatrical release on June 30 and video-on-demand release shortly thereafter. The continuing popularity of President Reagan is a source of profound irritation and unease to liberals. To assuage their pain, they have gone back to their initial rationalization for how Reagan became so beloved: He cheated. Though...

    BERLIN -- Thirty years ago this week, President Ronald Reagan stood at a lectern in what was then West Berlin, framed by the Brandenburg Gate behind him. Through a thick sheet of bulletproof glass, he gazed at the ugly concrete symbol of the Cold War, the Berlin Wall, and uttered the most famous words of his presidency to Mikhail Gorbachev, the leader of the Soviet empire. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall," he said. This was no mere rhetorical flourish. He was passionately and morally offended by the "evil empire." The Wall Museum in Berlin celebrates the occasion with a...

    Hodgkinson had a history of violence that did not rise to the level to prohibit him from legally owning a firearm. He was the foster father of at least two girls. The first, Wanda Ashley Stock, 17, committed suicide in 1996 by pouring gasoline on herself and setting herself on fire after a few months of living with the Hodgkinsons, the Belleville News-Democrat reports. The Hodgkinsons gave an interview to the paper after her suicide, calling her a ďvery practical, level-headed girl.Ē

    It's something most conservatives a year ago would not have imagined: the opening act of Donald Trumpís agenda in the White House contains a real whiff of Ronald Reagan. To be sure, there's plenty the Reaganites won't like -- talk of trillion-dollar federal building campaigns, taxing business at the border, etc. -- but there's plenty to applaud as well. Heís proposing dramatic across-the-board tax cuts. Thatís Reaganesque. Heís reasserting American strength and resolve in response to the dictators who rattle sabers at America. Thatís Reaganesque. Heís appointing judges and Supreme Court justices that follow the Constitution instead of acting like...

  • Ronald Reagan reminds us what we're up against

    The taxpayer Ė thatís someone who works for the federal government but doesnít have to take a civil-service exam. Governmentís view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. Millions of individuals making their own decisions in the marketplace will always allocate resources better than any centralized government planning process. How do you tell a communist? Well, itís someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-communist? Itís someone who understands Marx and Lenin....

    President Trump has succeeded in picking the most conservative Cabinet of the modern era, and possibly ever, even besting the team put together by former President Reagan, according to a scorecard from the American Conservative Union, host of the annual CPAC convention. ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp told Secrets that Trump's team, made up in part with House and Senate lawmakers graded by the group over the years, has a 91.52 percent conservative rating, significantly surpassing Reagan's by 28 points.

    Editorís Note: This report originally appeared at the American Spectator. I've been getting e-mails from bewildered colleagues asking about a survey of presidential scholars that determined that Barack Obama is the 12th best president in the history of the United States, putting him near the top quartile of our presidents. How can this be? I, too, was mystified, especially given that I participated in the survey. The survey was conducted by the impeccably fair C-SPAN. Few sources do their job like C-SPAN does. If you want truly unfiltered news, C-SPAN is unrivaled for its ability to simply place a camera...

    Stories surfaced this year to the effect that federal employees would quit if Donald Trump were elected. Unfortunately, that's not likely to happen. "Most of what we think of as federal law is written by federal agencies," Benjamin Ginsberg, a professor at Johns Hopkins pointed out recently at the Cato Institute. "In the most recent year available, Congress passed 218 pieces of legislation, not all of them substantive, while federal agencies added 150,000 rules, many of them important, for example, Taft-Hartley [right-to-work] regulations." "So the Department of Labor is writing new law nominally based on some ancient statute." The last...
