The Tea Party After Tennessee: Swinging Like Babe Ruth And Building A Movement

The Tea Party is building a movement, and they get the lesson of Babe Ruth’s 1927 season.

Ann Coulter Gets One Right (Sort Of)

Many conservatives may not like Ann Coulter’s tough and almost personal attack on the motives of Christian overseas missionaries, like Dr. Brantly, but Coulter was right; if we want to save America we need to preach the Gospel and do good works here rather than expecting politics to fix what ails our country.

Reagan Scholar Dissects Obama Defense Policy

Reagan scholar Dr. Kiron K. Skinner says the absence of a strategy is why President Obama’s recent speech at West Point fell flat for many Democrats and Republicans. As a warning to adversaries, it lacked credibility.

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.

The Scariest Drudge Headline Ever

We can’t think of a force less likely to bring about the governance of America according to conservative principles than the reemergence of Mitt Romney to fill the leadership “void” in the national Republican Party.

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.”

DAVE BRAT AND THE RETURN OF THE CONSTITUTION

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.

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.
