  • Ronald Reagan: We meant to change a nation, and instead, we changed a world (video)

    Radix News ^ | November 2, 2014 | Ronald Reagan
    Some inspirational words in these troubled times. On January 11, 1989 Ronald Reagan delivered his farewell address from the White House. In this video excerpt, he sums up some of the achievements and lessons of his presidency. Hearing the Gipper reflect on the 1980s, we understand the magnitude of his achievements, and also what the country has since lost, especially in recent years. Today, some are giving up hope that America can be great again. But as Mr. Reagan says, “because we’re a great nation, our challenges seem complex. It will always be this way. But as long as we...

    Irritating phrases and words are not confined to political circles, or solely to Washington, although here in the nation’s capital they burrow in and proliferate like obsolete, but entrenched, government programs. This is a call to arms to fight them—but only metaphorically.15: “WAR ON [FILL IN THE BLANK]” Syria’s civil war has produced 2.5 million refugees and a death toll of 160,000, a tragedy that has galvanized neither major political party into action. So next time a Democrat brays about the so-called Republican “war on women” or a Republican trumpets the Obama administration’s “war on coal,” tell them you’ve...

    On March 31, 1981 at precisely 2:27 pm, six gunshots rang out just outside the VIP entrance to the Washington Hilton. Moments later, as three felled men lay bleeding on the ground outside the hotel, an armored limousine carrying the President of the United States raced away from the scene. Though it wasn’t immediately apparent, the president had been shot. Ronald Wilson Reagan was just weeks into his first term in office when he was struck in the side by a deflected bullet fired by a mentally deranged would-be assassin. Most Americans are aware, of course, that Reagan survived this...

    "Within the Reagan household, and perhaps in Ronald Reagan's heart," his definitive biographer Lou Cannon writes, "there was an early sense that he was a child of destiny." Certainly there was not much in his family background to suggest that. The 40th president was born one hundred years ago on Feb. 6 in the second floor of a gritty-looking building in Tampico, Ill. The family moved to other towns, and briefly to Chicago, before shoe salesman Jack Reagan and his wife, Nell, settled in the prosperous town of Dixon when Reagan was 9. Reagan always remembered his boyhood there in...

As such, he has plenty of stories to tell — like the one from his White House debut, with the Army Band Chorus, at Tricia Nixon’s 1971 St. Patrick’s Day engagement party. “My Three Sons” star Fred MacMurray arrived at the event seemingly inebriated and took up the saxophone. “He was just horrible. ...

    Why do conservatives and liberals respond so differently to the current war in Georgia? The answer to that question exposes the great political divide separating left and right, Democrats and Republicans, in today’s America. The stark contrast between Barack Obama and John McCain at this weekend’s televised Civil Forum at California’s Saddleback Church further underlined the vast gulf in worldviews when it comes to injecting moral standards or arguments into politics. Conservatives approach every challenge with a determination to approach the question (as far as possible)as a choice between right and wrong, good and evil. Liberals, on the other hand,...

Diary excerpts, released by Vanity Fair magazine on Tuesday, also reflect on the troubled relationship he had with his son Ron, his preoccupation with the "mad clown" Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his personal chemistry with Mikhail...

    He would have turned 95 on Feb. 6 – the most recent former president to die and likely the most popular and inspiring chief executive of the 20th century. Ronald Reagan – known as unflappably pro-defense yet able to forge friendships with his adversaries. Staunchly partisan and loyal to the Republican Party yet deft at crafting compromise with Democratic lawmakers to move his agenda forward. A tax cutter who presided over a significant expansion in revenues to the federal government. Though Reagan's legacy includes accomplishments in all areas of public policy, it is his success in toppling the "Evil Empire"...

    Ronald Reagan will be remembered as a great man and a great American leader who personified and advanced the highest ideals of the American people at home and abroad. After eight years of his presidency, the communism of Soviet Russia was collapsing, the American military was rebuilt, the nation’s economy restored and its moral fabric renewed. As he said, himself, President Reagan left America "more prosperous, more secure, and happier than it was eight years" earlier. Many will remember him as the "Great Communicator". But as the President said many times, he wasn't a great communicator, he communicated great things....

    Even back in November 1980, a time that seems so far removed from our technological age, political campaigns knew things long before the voters did. Both Ronald Reagan's and Jimmy Carter's insiders understood a day or so before the election that the President was done for. Weekend polling told Patrick Caddell what he needed to know, and he passed the word along to Carter. Reagan was going to become the next president. For all the American people knew, the race was still essentially a toss-up, though it had seemed to be moving slightly in Reagan's direction. The week before, the...

    There's not much that can be said after the events last week celebrating the life of Ronald Reagan, other than "wow." The processions, the dignitaries, the bands, the military, and the memories all fit together perfectly. There were a few protesters, as could be expected. At first it struck me as repugnant, the very idea of protesting during a funeral, but then the optimism and wit that filled Reagan spilled over and softened my opinion. It occurred to me that, if Ronald Reagan was told that there were a few protesters near his funeral, he'd have said something along the...

    Sen. John Kerry's former presidential campaign manager said Monday that he'd been "dreading" the prospect of Ronald Reagan's death because it was likely to give President Bush a major political boost. "I've been dreading this every election year for three cycles," said Jim Jordan, who resigned from the Kerry campaign last year, in comments to the New York Times. "Bush has totally attached himself to Ronald Reagan. He's going to turn Reagan into his own verifier." Kerry campaign aides said they hoped the political impact of Reagan's death would fade by the summer, but top Republicans believe that many Americans...

"[Journalists] are willing, over the next few days, to concede what is so obvious that they have to concede it - his personal goodness, etc.," Noonan told Matt Drudge on his radio show.

MIDI - DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING Every now and then we find that a great leader comes along One who has greatness that we celebrate in poetry and song He grew up in the Midwest and he had learned his lessons well But how far he would go nobody could really tell His accomplishments were growing but he’s not one who would boast He learned that a man’s character is what is valued most And he’s led his life with an honor that we can admire Ronald Reagan we...

    THIS SITE has some wonderful clips of The Gipper. Even though I couldn't get all of the video because of software requirements, but I did get TEAR DOWN THIS WALL in audio. Don't miss "I was once a Democrat." Have fun.

    Is anyone listening to Hannity out there? A caller said that she'd heard someone blame Rush Limbaugh for getting the Reagans off the air. Did anyone catch who said it and is there an article?

    It strikes me as revealing that California conservatives, regardless of party affiliation, have maneuvered themselves into a position that they must now choose between a cultural separatists running on a socialist platform and a liberal running on his personal fame. The greater irony is that these conservatives are now willing to follow the liberal to hell for fear of the socialist.

    Al Rantel Show, KABC in Los Angeles | 2-12-03 | dfu
    Al Rantel on KABC is nailing the RATS big time regarding Star Wars. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the RATS have always mocked the idea of a missile defense shield. Well, how many of them are laughing now? If we had a missile defense shield, those on the West Coast would be a little less worried about Korea. In case you missed it, CIA Director George Tenet confirmed that the maniacs of North Korea have a missile that can reach the West Coast. When President Bush spoke of it in the SOTU, Republicans cheered and RATS sat on their hands. I'll...

    NOTE: this is No. 2 in a series in which we look at the highlights of the greatest president of the 20th century, Ronald W. Reagan. During the summer of 1984, America was filled with patriotic fervor. American Olympians in Los Angeles dressed in uniforms bearing the Stars and Stripes. The Soviets boycotted the Games, and the United States dominated them. President Ronald Reagan was very popular in his own party and with "Reagan Democrats," those who saw the light and deserted their party to vote for The Gipper. There were two presidential debates that year between President Reagan...

    Now that Secretary of State Colin Powell has returned from his disastrous "peace" mission to the Middle East, perhaps it's time for the Bush administration to get back to Bush basics and return to its previously-successful America-first, "go-it-alone-if-necessary" foreign policy. Based on various "insider" news reports, it appears that President George W. Bush's instinctive response in these matters has always been to go after the "evil" guys, whoever they are and wherever they are, regardless of what America's erstwhile European and Arab "allies" think. However, lately the Euro-obsessed Mr. Powell, and the arabist-loving bureaucratic dandies in the U.S. state department,...
