Richard Nixon

Nixon and Trump, Then and Now

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In June 1972, a bungled bugging at the DNC, which Nixon briefly sought to contain and then discussed as the White House tapes were rolling, gave his enemies the sword they needed to run him through. The same deep state enemies await a similar opening to do to Trump what they did to Nixon. Rely upon it.

Nixon's Revenge

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If this war ends well for Trump, it ends badly for his enemies in the press. If Trump goes down, the media will feel for a long time the hostility and hatred of those tens of millions who put their faith and placed their hopes in Trump. For the mainstream media, seeking to recover the lost confidence of its countrymen, this war looks like a lose-lose.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 21st Century’s Richard Milhous Nixon

By Craig Shirley, Author and Reagan Biographer
Reagan biographer Craig Shirley puts Hillary Rodham Clinton on the couch and finds that Mrs. Clinton, having gone over 200 days without a press conference, manufacturing an “alt-right” movement that is out to get her and dismissing every criticism as personal seems to be headed well down the Nixonian path.

How Phyllis Schlafly Saved The Conservative Movement

By Richard Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
No matter how bad things looked on Capitol Hill during the 1970s, hope and encouragement came from Phyllis Schlafly and her legions of women who defeated the ERA state-by-state and in so doing showed conservatives what effective political organizing and bare-knuckle politics could accomplish when it was separated from the drag of the Republican establishment.

A Much Needed History Lesson For Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker

Republican primary voters tend toward primogeniture and they may make a cause out of a closely fought loss, as Nixon’s supporters did over his 1960 loss to John F. Kennedy and Reagan’s conservative supporters did in 1976 after he was denied the Republican nomination, but it appears that general election voters have a higher standard and they will never forgive or look at a sore loser as worthy of the highest office in the land.

How Donald Trump is resurrecting the ‘great silent majority’

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

Of the many smart moves Donald Trump has made during his campaign, one of the most impactful was his appropriation of Mr. Nixon’s phrase. At a campaign rally last July in Phoenix, he said, “The silent majority is back, and we’re going to take our country back.”

The Wrong Response to Ferguson, Missouri

Richard Nixon's "law and order" campaign is in no way a principled conservative response to the killing of Michael Brown and the riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

Rick Perlstein: Time to ‘Fess Up and Make It Right With Craig Shirley

We were looking forward to Rick Perlstein's new Reagan book, until it came to our attention that much of it isn't exactly new. Allegedly, without proper attribution, it draws heavily on "Reagan's Revolution" by our friend Craig Shirley.

Viguerie’s Vigorous Conservative Opus

Jennifer Harper, Washington Times

Richard Viguerie's new book TAKEOVER covers Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, William F. Buckley, M. Stanton Evans and Ronald Reagan. He blasts the GOP Estab., The Bushes and consultants, just to name a few. The author is ready to rumble as “civil war” and division rattle the GOP.

Is the U.S. Ready to Engage in More Warfare?

Patrick J. Buchanan, Buchanan.org

If we severely sanction Russia, she could cut off oil and gas to Europe, cause a recession in the eurozone, and move closer to China. What our Greatest Generation presidents accomplished, our Baby Boomer presidents appear to have booted away.

Following the Trail Nixon Blazed

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Obama shows the same Orwellian disregard for the Constitution as Richard Nixon. And yet, we're not doing anything about it.

Levin: We Owe Nixon, Family an Apology

Right Scoop Staff

Mark Levin said that given how Nixon was relentlessly attacked for being the greatest threat ever in US history, but yet no one is willing to speak up and go after Obama who is far more lawless and far more of a threat to this country, that we really owe Nixon and his family an apology.

Buchanan: US Failure to Police Mexican Border Killed GOP Majority

Joe Schaeffer, NewsMax

The Republican majority built under Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan began to “lose the country” when it failed to police the Mexican border two decades ago, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan says.

What’s the Difference Between Obama and Nixon?

Nixon’s law breaking was small potatoes compared to Barack Obama’s policy of systematically breaking and ignoring the law in pursuit of his radical leftwing agenda. But Obama gets away with it because a spineless Congress refuses to hold him accountable. To sign our petition demanding Congress hold Obama to account for his law breaking click here

Chris Christie Scandal Shows the Danger of Big Government, No Matter Which Party is in Charge

Following the abuses of power by President Obama, Chris Christie's "Bridge-gate"  demonstrates why we need limited government. It’s why we need smaller government. It’s why we need all kinds of safeguards to keep government locked in its cage and tethered to its post  – and why the out-of-control government we have now in America (at all levels) is so dangerous.

Barack Obama is the Richard Nixon of the 21st Century

Barack Obama's arrogance, lies and deceit may bring down a lot of Democrats in 2014, but conservatives must recognize that things won’t change much in Washington if an arrogant, deceitful big government, big spending Democrat like Barack Obama is replaced with an arrogant, deceitful big government, big spending Republican like Richard Nixon.
