    Q: Given his secular nature, given some of his personal difficulties in the past, is Newt Gingrich, in your view, suited to be President?Weyrich: Well, a lot of people have failings. The real question is not whether he has failed in the past. There is no man who lives who does not sin. The question is whether he has acknowledged these failings and intends to do something about them. So I don't consider him unfit for office because of what he's done. A lot of people would be disqualified were that the case. I think it's unfortunate. I think...

    Theocracy-watcher Katherine Yurica calls it "the most immoral political program ever adopted by a political movement in this country." At Illuminati Conspiracy Archive, Paul and Phillip Collins say that it "echoes the revolutionary fervor of Robespierre's radical Jacobinism." The object of this fear and loathing? An obscure essay (now available only on web archives) titled "The Integration of Theory and Practice: A Program for the New Traditionalist Movement," written in 2001 by Eric Heubeck, a former associate of the late Paul Weyrich at the Free Congress Foundation. Not only has his essay been removed from Free Congress's website, but Heubeck...

Capitol Street, NESuite 803Washington, D.C. 20002-4201Dear Ms. Ridenour:Late last year, I had the opportunity of speaking to the Conservative Leadership Conference on the state of the conservative movement. I've given similar talks in the past, and usually they have focused on the most recent election or our situation in Congress or something similar. This time, the thoughts I offered were very different, and frankly rather radical. The strong, positive response they brought forth -- which came as something of a surprise to me -- has led me to think...

    February 12, 1999 was the day social conservatism died in America. On that bitter day, President Bill Clinton was acquitted in his impeachment trial. The United States Senate determined that his perjury and obstruction of justice in the Monica Lewinsky scandal did not warrant his removal from office; the Senate’s view was shared by two-thirds of the American people. With that decision, traditional American morality bit the dust. Four days after Clinton’s acquittal, the late Paul Weyrich wrote an open letter to the American conservative movement in which he declared: Cultural Marxism is succeeding in its war against our culture....

    Paul Weyrich: RIP Paul Weyrich, a leader of the conservative movement, was laid to rest today in Fairfax,Va. Paul was not a household name. He was well known to many in Washington, certainly in Republican circles. For Newsmax readers, he was an old friend. Almost from the beginning, Paul has been a contributing “Pundit” in Newsmax’s online commentary section. When I heard of Paul’s passing last Thursday, I thought of Bill Buckley’s death this year. When Buckley passed in February, he was eulogized as the intellectual father of Reagan conservatism. If Bill Buckley was the intellectual godfather, Paul Weyrich was...

    Paul Weyrich died this morning. For those who never knew Paul, let that serve as a prologue to a story I hope you’ll retell many times for countless years to come. To those who did know Paul, it will likely serve as the final chapter in a story that changed the way we all lived. For the better. Hopefully for eons to come.

    The Bulletin ^ | 11/26/2008 | Paul M. Weyrich
    The use of ethanol and other renewable fuels supposedly helps gasoline burn cleaner creating less pollution. It also reduces America's reliance upon foreign oil. Last Monday the Environmental Protection Agency increased the amount of renewable automobile fuels required to be sold in the United States next year from 7.8 percent to 10.2 percent of the 138.5 billion gallons of gasoline projected to be consumed. This mandate mainly directs that higher levels of ethanol be mixed with gasoline. The higher standard is required by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, a law that requires the increased use of renewable...

    I have always disliked the "goo-goo" types. That stands for good government, the people who want everybody to vote. I don't want the uninformed to vote because either they will vote the familiar name or they will vote the way somebody tells them to vote. The goo-goo crowd must be in seventh heaven because in Indianapolis 105% of the voting age population is eligible to vote. Thanks to the so-called nonpartisan Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a great many people who are dead, invented or just plain silly have registered. On FOX News one ACORN representative admitted...
  • Offshore Drilling Ban

    10/03/2008 3:51:00 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies · 361+ views ^ | October 3, 2008 | Paul Weyrich
    An important event occurred this week, though it went largely unnoticed because of the economic turmoil on Wall Street. On September 30 Congress allowed the 27-year-old ban on offshore oil drilling to expire. This is very good news for Americans and for our energy independence. Conversely, it should be bad news for the world's tyrants who profit enormously from our dependence upon their vast oil resources. One can hope that the expiration of this ban permanently ends the unnecessary and impractical Congressional regulation of our natural resources under the disingenuous guise of environmental protection. I should note here that we...

    Every generation needs heroes. Young people especially need role models. How blessed we are that the role model of these Summer Olympics is Michael Phelps. Here is a young man who embodies self-discipline, hard work and goal orientation. It is not so much the world records he shattered. It is not only the number of medals he won. His whole outlook is to be celebrated. He has a commanding presence yet he is the boy next door. True, his endorsements will make him millions. Yet I dare say that is the furthest thing from his mind right now. As I...

    August 17, 1998 was the day conservatism began to die in America. On that day, President Clinton admitted in a nationally televised address that he engaged in an improper relationship with intern Monica Lewinsky—several months after declaring that such a relationship was fictional. “Indeed, I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate,” Clinton confessed. “In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible.” It was a shameful moment for Clinton—yet the country didn’t seem to care. Only a...

    EMP is electromagnetic radiation from an explosion (especially a nuclear explosion). The worst of the pulse lasts for only a second but any unprotected electrical equipment - and anything connected to electrical cables, which act as giant lightning rods or antennas - are affected by it. If a nation with a nuclear bomb and the ability to explode it high above an American city were to do so, it would have a massive effect in all directions. Almost immediately all communications systems in the country would be disrupted completely. No radio. No television. No internet. Indeed no electricity at all....

    Last week President George W. Bush held a press conference on the current state of the economy and the high cost of energy. In it he made several important points. First, he noted that one reason gas prices are increasing is that global supply has not kept pace with the growing demand worldwide. Members of Congress, he noted, “have been vocal about foreign governments increasing their oil production; yet Congress has been just as vocal in opposition to efforts to expand our production here at home. They repeatedly blocked environmentally safe exploration in ANWR. The Department of Energy estimates that...

    A pal sent this my way: a fascinating piece on George Bush and Catholicism from the Religion News Service, reprinted in tomorrow's edition of the Washington Post: Shortly after Pope Benedict XVI's election in 2005, President Bush met with a small circle of advisers in the Oval Office. As some mentioned their own religious backgrounds, the president remarked that he had read one of the new pontiff's books about faith and culture in Western Europe. Save for one other soul, Bush was the only non-Catholic in the room. But his interest in the pope's writings was no surprise to those...

    WASHINGTON, April 6 (UPI) -- A group of conservatives has taken out an ad urging presumptive Republican U.S. presidential nominee John McCain not to tap Mitt Romney as his running mate. Paul Weyrich, co-founder of the Moral Majority, who once endorsed Romney, is among those calling on McCain to look beyond Romney, his former rival and past governor of Massachusetts, the Los Angeles Times reported. SNIP- In a newspaper ad, conservatives said Romney is "utterly unacceptable" as a vice presidential pick. The ad questions Romney's commitment to fight abortion and gay rights.
