  • President Coolidge Speech on the 150th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence

    Teaching American History ^ | July 5, 1926 | Calvin Coolidge
    Our forefathers came to certain conclusions and decided upon certain courses of action which have been a great blessing to the world. Before we can understand their conclusions we must go back and review the course which they followed. We must think the thoughts which they thought. Their intellectual life centered around the meeting-house. They were intent upon religious worship. While there were always among them men of deep learning, and later those who had comparatively large possessions, the mind of the people was not so much engrossed in how much they knew, or how much they had, as in...

    During a visit to the Soviet Union in 1988, President Ronald Reagan, a lifelong anti-communist, met with students at Moscow State University and delivered a stirring plea for democracy and individual rights...As he addressed the students, the president stood underneath a bust of Lenin, the leader of the Russian Revolution, and in front of a mural filled with revolutionary flags of revolution. Document: Before I left Washington, I received many heartfelt letters and telegrams asking me to carry here a simple message - perhaps, but also some of the most important business of this summit - it is a message...

    Donald Trump said in an interview aired Thursday that his wife, Melania, will give "two or three speeches" during the remainder of his presidential run, praising his press-averse spouse as "an amazing public speaker." Trump delivered the news in a sit-down interview alongside Melania on ABC's "Good Morning America," ........ Asked by host George Stephanopoulos if she wants "to get out there yourself and help (Trump) out in the final two weeks," Melania Trump said "we'll see" before Trump jumped in. Melania Trump appears surprised after Donald Trump says she agreed to deliver some speeches .......... "She's actually going to...

    It's almost as if her principles . . . can be bought Just a reminder: You can’t believe a word that comes out of Hillary’s mouth. You knew that, of course. Just about everyone has known that for a very long time. What I still can’t quite work out is why anyone would pay serious money to hear her say something thaat they have to know isn’t worth the index cards it’s written on. How dumb would you have to be to do that? Pro tip: Don’t get sick. The health care industry is chock full of geniuses who actually...

    ABC's morning and evening newscasts, as of Saturday morning, have yet to report on the Friday release of purported excerpts from some of Hillary Clinton's speeches to corporate audiences. The same programs on Friday evening and Saturday morning hyped the vulgar Donald Trump audio from 2005. By contrast, Friday's CBS Evening News mentioned how the website Wikileaks "published...some embarrassing excerpts from her [Clinton's] paid Wall Street speeches." Saturday's Today on NBC and CBS This Morning Saturday also aired full reports on the potentially-problematic revelations for the Democratic nominee," as the latter program put it.

    Hillary Clinton Speeches ^ | October 5, 2016 | PJ-Comix
    This would be MAJOR NEWS if Donald Trump suddenly had NO speeches scheduled thru October 23. However, since the candidate is Hillary Clinton, this will probably be ignored by the MSM. If you want to see something astounding, I urge you to check out the HILLARY CLINTON SPEECHES page. So why is it astounding? Because if you check it out you will see that, despite the title of the page, NO actual Hillary Clinton speeches scheduled thru October 23. She is scheduled to appear at a grand total of two fundraisers and the two scheduled debates remaining. However, there are...

    Townhall.com ^ | June 23, 2016 | Jackie Gingrich Cushman
    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has had a bad week in the media, but potentially a good week for the future. The transition from a free-flowing primary campaign to a more structured, bigger general election campaign is underway. The transition is a bit more turbulent than might be comfortable for those along for the ride. After announcing Cory Lewandowski's departure on Monday, the Trump campaign released a list of new hires on Tuesday, with promises of more to come. But in the end, campaigns are not about staffs, spouses or (adult) children, they are a reflection of the candidate....

An attendee of one of Clinton's Goldman Sachs speeches spoke with Politico and revealed why Clinton won't release the transcripts of the speeches.

  • 5 Great Presidential Speeches in American History

    Words are important. Any good leader knows this. That is why one of the true marks of a good leader is the ability to communicate ideas and intentions to the people, to motivate them and guide them toward a common goal. In American history, our presidents have used the power of words to guide the people and the nation. Of the millions of words that have been spoken by these 44 men over the past 200-plus years, there are only a handful of times that those words have been used to their maximum effect. These speeches are prime examples of...

Here is their (Trump, Cruz, Rubio) total remarks on IMMIGRATION...later we will do trade, terrorism, 2nd amendment, Obamacare and education. Trump June 16 , 2015 When do we beat Mexico at the border?

    We know that the Clinton Foundation has been drawn into the ongoing investigation over the Clinton emails. The State Department issued the family nonprofit a subpoena last fall, asking for all documents relating to the Foundation's ventures that might have required approval from the government while she was our top diplomat in the Obama administration. Moreover, documents related to Huma Abedin, Clinton's trusted aide who worked for both her office at State and other areas of the family's operations, are included in this subpoena (via WaPo): Investigators with the State Department issued a subpoena to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea...

    Washington Post ^ | February 7, 2016 | Chris Cillizza
    Hillary Clinton had a chance to put to rest swirling questions about her paid speeches to groups such as Goldman Sachs during last week's final debate before Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire. She pointedly refused to take it. [Snip] But why did Clinton respond that way? There's the possibility - though I think it's very remote - that Clinton simply wasn't expecting the question and didn't want to commit to anything in the moment. [Snip] Why not release them, then? ... My guess is that in the speeches, Clinton acknowledges her various friends and acquaintances at Goldman Sachs (and other...

    **SNIP** Together, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have earned in excess of $125 million in speech income since leaving the White House in 2001, one-fifth of it in the last two years. Mrs. Clinton's own speechmaking was a veritable tour through high finance. She gave paid speeches at GTCR, the Chicago private equity firm that the Republican governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner, helped found; Deutsche Bank, the German financial services conglomerate; and the investment bank Morgan Stanley, among other companies. Goldman Sachs alone paid Mrs. Clinton $675,000 for three speeches in three different states, a fact...

    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) on Friday said Hillary Clinton's paid speeches to Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs are "in the past" and not worth delving into. "The fact is that's in the past," she said on MSNBC when asked about Clinton's past speeches to the banking firm. "They're done, so it doesn't matter whether or not you support that or not," Shaheen said. "[It is] just as Bernie's socialism - he claims - is in the past," she added of Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. "The question is what do voters want to...

    The American Spectator ^ | 12-30-15 | R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.
    To those of us who have followed the ongoing Clinton Saga, which now reaches back almost twenty-five years, Hillary Rodham Clinton's computer server promises to become as historic as Monica Lewinsky's stained dress. That is to say, that her server may indeed become as significant to her presidential prospects as Monica's dress was to Bill's prospects for impeachment. It is now apparent to fact finders across the nation that some of Hillary's e-mails-thousands of which have been saved on her personal server-show that she lied to the American people as surely as Monica's dress proved that Bill lied to the...

    ~snip~ The Pope is only infallible when he speaks ex cathedra( or from the Throne of Peter, the first Pope) and it is only on issues of faith and morals. Everything else is his opinion based on his own life experiences. Pope Francis is being depicted as a Marxist because he allegedly speaks about global warming and redistribution of wealth. Therefore he has won praise from the leftist community even though he has condemned abortion and supports marriage as a sacrament between a man and a woman. Those on the far right are upset by his assertion that all good...
