Ronald Reagan

The Vindication of Barry Goldwater

Jeffery Lord, American Spectator

Barry Goldwater: The man who made Reagan possible. Fifty years ago, Barry Goldwater won the Republican presidential nomination as a man of controversy. Today, he can be seen as something else entirely: vindicated.

Reagan Knew How to Prevent Local Gov't Abuse of Property Rights

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

It's time for these Reagan-era property rights reforms to become law, and correct a poorly informed judge-made doctrine that allows localities to mess with our homes, our “castles.”


Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Eric Cantor lost to the modern Gipper, Dave Brat. Make no mistake. The Tea Party is not dead, and Reagan conservatism lives.

Reagan, Then and Now

Craig Shirley, National Review

Commentators and politicians are underestimating Reagan- again. Some have suggested that Reagan couldn't survive in today’s GOP because he was “a man of his times.” In fact, given his principles, his vision, and his moral convictions, Reagan was a man for all times, for all seasons.

LBJ's Great Society: The Establishment's War On America

After fifty years, American skepticism of the Great Society and the big government it created have never been stronger, and the embrace of the Great Society’s big spending and big government by the Republican establishment has never been tighter.

TAKEOVER Strategy Defeats Eric Cantor’s Machine In VA-7

As conservative Fred Gruber proved by winning election as Virginia’s 7th District Republican Chairman, if you want to govern America according to conservative principles, first take back your local Republican Party from the progressive establishment Republicans, like House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who have hijacked the Party and turned it into a vehicle to preserve their own personal power.

Highlights of My Speech to the New York Meeting

By Richard A. Viguerie, Author & CHQ Chairman

There have been four great Republican electoral triumphs in the past half century; Ronald Reagan in 1980 and 1984, the Contract with America in 1994, and the Tea Party revolution in 2010 and as I explain in my new book TAKEOVER there’s a theme common to all of them.

11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

"I have seen the conservative future and it works…Our task is not to sell a philosophy, but to make the majority of Americans, who already share that philosophy, see that modern conservatism offers them a political home." Reagan was right.

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.

The GOP Civil War

Jamie Radtke, The Bull Elephant

Tea party supporters are not the only ones calling for accountability and removal of these twaddling Repubs. Long-time movement conservative leaders, like Richard Viguerie and Craig Shirley, are strongly behind the efforts to restore the GOP back to its Reagan roots by purging the progressive elements out of our Party.

Reagan Won By Violating His Own 11th Commandment

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

In my new book TAKEOVER I knock down the myth of Ronald Reagan's so-called 11th Commandment and show how Reagan took all the discontents within the Republican Party to build a new majority coalition and defeat the “dime store Democrat” leadership of the Republican establishment.

Why Ronald Reagan Spoke of ‘The Eleventh Commandment’

By not engaging in backbiting with other Republicans, Reagan was able to appear to conservative Democrats as someone different from other Republicans. Which he surely was.

CA GOP Seeks to Return to Reagan Blue

John Hrabe,

At this weekend’s state party convention in San Francisco, a group of influential California Republicans has an odd request for delegates: help turn California blue. But it's the Ronald Reagan version.

Observations from CPAC: Past and Now

By first covering CPAC in a disparaging way the liberals at The Washington Post, or the Washington “Compost” as it is known to DC area conservatives, helped make CPAC the mega-conference it is today and launch other conservative endeavors, including Sarah Palin Radio.  

Our Conservative Friend Jeff Bell Files For New Jersey Senate Seat

We are encouraged by Jeff Bell’s run for the Senate in New Jersey. Like Bill Kristol, we expect Bell to punch way above his weight class in the match-up against incumbent Democrat Cory Booker because Bell will draw a distinct contrast between his conservative world view and the secular liberal world view of Booker. 

Ronald Reagan, Ted Cruz, and the Tea Party at Five

Ronald Reagan built his coalition by taking all the discontents within the Republican Party and molding them into a coherent conservative ideology and a winning coalition that defeated the Republican establishment in the primaries. After just five short years the grassroots limited government constitutional conservatives of the Tea Party movement are well on their way to doing the same thing.

Obama’s Treasonous Squandering of American Power

It took sixty-nine years to build America into the world's only superpower; it has taken Obama less than six to flippantly throwaway America’s national influence and unilaterally disarm America through a conscious and treasonous hollowing-out of America’s military capability. Sign and share the petition to impeach Barack Obama.

Reagan's Heirs: The Tea Party

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

The Tea Party will be celebrating a remarkable 5-year national movement that in turn is famous for the values that were so closely identified with Ronald Reagan. That is why the ferocious nature of the attacks on the Tea Party — why the need of the Big Lie that casts the Tea Party not only as something it is not.

Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review

A new face with a familiar name seeks office in Nevada. Adam Paul Laxalt wants to be the next attorney general of Nevada. His grandfather was a senator and governor of Nevada and close friend to Ronald Reagan.
