Ronald Reagan

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, Watchdog.org

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. 

Adam Laxalt for Attorney General

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.

Book Review: Dan Bongino's "Life Inside the Bubble"

Former Secret Service agent turned conservative congressional candidate Dan Bongino’s “Life Inside the Bubble” has just been added to my list of favorite political memoirs.

The Ted Cruz Majority

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Ted Cruz is in the process of making a new Reagan Revolution, the Cruz Majority. Over the vociferous objections of the same kind of people who kept warning Repubs. that if they listened to Reagan they'd get clobbered. Which is exactly why Ted Cruz is being greeted as a hero.

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.

U of SC Textbook's Disgusting Attack of Reagan, Conservatives

Jennifer Burke, Tea Party News Network

A textbook by Cengage used by the Univ. of SC is disparaging Reagan by portraying him as a racist, a sexist, as well as stating that conservatives view people as ‘lazy and non-charitable’.

Reagan Biographer Craig Shirley: GOP Resembles a Crime Family

Craig Shirley, Rush Limbaugh and Pat Caddell think the reason Congress has not gotten to the bottom of the IRS targeting of conservatives and Tea Party movement groups is because the establishment GOP wants the IRS to hobble these groups just as much or more than do the Democrats.

Boehner and Kingston More Conservative Than Broun? Give Us A Break!

Conservatism is not a smorgasbord from which you can select a few convenient morsels, it is a coherent view of governance. Georgia's Paul Broun has a record of holding that view and acting on it, Jack Kingston and John Boehner do not.
