Ronald Reagan

Remembering Marty Anderson

Ronald Reagan surrounded himself with recognized conservatives; men like Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt, Lyn Nofziger, Dick Allen, Ed Meese, Jeff Bell, Judge William Clark and Marty Anderson weren’t window dressing like Warren Buffet is to Barack Obama – they were who Ronald Reagan was.

Reagan Beats Obama on Economic Growth

Sierra Rayne, American Thinker

Forbes is wrong. Try as the Obama supporters might to revise history, the facts remain the facts. Reagan's econ. legacy is why we see headlines like this: "'80s Nostalgia: Poll Finds Reagan Beats Obama in a Landslide -- Even young people yearn for the 1980s."

GOP, Show, Don’t Tell

Jonah Goldberg, National Review Online

If you want to be the next Ronald Reagan, be the next Ronald Reagan. If Republicans see politics as a game, at least they could play it more convincingly. The “P” in POTUS stands for “President,” not “Pundit.”

Why We Must (Gently) Disagree With Our Friend Mark Levin

Ronald Reagan’s answer to those, including some of his good political supporters, who wanted him to head a new conservative party, was to tell them “they were out of their minds.” As Reagan saw it then (and he was right) the bulk of conservative voters in America are Republicans—and they won’t desert the Republican Party for a third party.

Reagan Biographer: RFK Got Reagan Fired From GE Theater

Jack Coleman, Newsbusters

This was hardly Kennedy's intention when he unscrupulously threatened to cancel gov't contracts w/ GE unless the company fired the popular host of its Sun. evening TV show, General Electric Theater, according to Reagan biographer and former aide Thomas C. Reed.

Levin On '16: GOP Must Pick Conservative For 1st Time Since Reagan

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Conservative Leaders Join to Block Jeb, Say He's Anti-Reagan

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

“I don’t know of any conservatives who are supporting him,” said Richard Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ.com. “Jeb is a very good moderate Dem,” added Mark Levin. “He doesn't elicit excitement outside a small circle of wealthy corporatists & GOP Beltway operatives.”

Dear GOP: Do Your Damned Job

Steve Deace, a nationally-syndicated talk show host and author of the new book, “Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again,” has some sage advice for Republicans. “Forget what your consultants tell you is politically possible. You’re up against an opponent who doesn’t care about possible, let alone legal.”  

O's Amnesty Is VERY Different From Reagan/Bush Actions

Greg Campbell, Tea Party News Network

Ronald Reagan & George H.W. Bush only used their power to expand laws recently passed by Congress, not to impose new laws. What Obama's doing would go far beyond his predecessors’ actions. And they wouldn't be rooted in any recently passed law. 

When Liberty Knocked Down the Berlin Wall

We should celebrate a quarter century after the collapse of communism.  The events of 1989 represent a massive increase in liberty, a fantastic triumph of the human spirit.  With so little bloodshed everyday people ousted a gaggle of tyrannies.  They have given hope for future generations, and themselves, that freedom can emerge against seemingly impossible odds.

What It Is Going To Take To Defeat Amnesty

Much as conservatives welcome the help RNC Chairman Reince Priebus' comments about amnesty seem to portend, the real muscle to defeat amnesty is going to have to come from the conservative grassroots – the same voters and activists who powered the Republican Party to victory in the 2014 wave.

RIP Representative Phil Crane

The Real Impact of Reagan’s “A Time for Choosing” Speech

“The Speech” established Ronald Reagan’s political brand as the preeminent communicator of conservative ideas, and as CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie observed in TAKEOVER, in some sense, for the next twenty-five years Reagan never deviated from that script.

Reagan’s ‘A Time For Choosing’ Still Relevant

Brent Moody, The Federalist

Fifty years ago today, Ronald Reagan gave us famous “A Time For Choosing” speech. The principles he laid out are equally, or perhaps more, relevant today.

Remembering Reagan’s ‘Time for Choosing’ Speech

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

This coming October 27th marks the fiftieth anniversary of that speech, the one that history records as launching Reagan’s own stunningly successful political career that saw him just two years later elected governor of California in a million-vote landslide.

Rush: The Republican Party isn’t Presenting an Alternative

Rush Limbaugh, RushLimbaugh.com

Voters never, other than Reagan, the lone example, never affirmatively vote for conservatism because it's never really presented to them.  It's presented to them by me and Fox News on some occasions and other so-called new media, but it's not presented to voters by the Republican Party.

Conservatives Be of Good Cheer - We're Winning

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

The leadership that Americans need and are looking for doesn’t come from Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus, or any of the Republican establishment. The leadership comes from each of us in the conservative movement, our organizations, our members. We are the driving force to Save America and we are winning!
