Hey 1980 can we have President Reagan back!!!
"Without sacrificing our national sovereignties our own individual cultures or national pride, we could, as neighbors, make this Western hemisphere, our hemisphere, a force for good such as the Old World has never seen." - President Reagan, March 10, 1983
Per Ken Taylor: There are many who read this that were not around during the depressing years of the Carter Presidency. His policies, weakness, poor handeling of the economy and lecturing Americans about how we needed to get used to a lesser life style made the people lose hope, feel insecure and there truly was a depressed feeling in the air no matter where you lived in our country. Then came President Reagan whose belief in the American people, love of our country and understanding of what American exceptionalism is restored hope, economic prosperity, patriotism and our prestige in the world bringing with it the ability by a free people to actually seek and fulfill the American Dream. Even during the Clinton years that reaped the benefits of Reagan's economic boom, there was a general feeling of hope that continued in spite of the occupant of The White House. Then came 9/11 and patriotism grew as our Nation rallied in resolve to defeat the Islamic murderers who were behind that terrible day. Through all ...
So I watched the Butler yesterday and guess who played President Reagan? SNAPE did! and you know what, he looked just like him! O_o
Apr 1983 Flight B-320 . TSgt Bare was TI. I remember other TI's calling Sgt. Cookies and Creme. Lol. Great instructor. Our flight had the privilege of playing for President Reagan when he visited Randolph AFB. He shook each D&B Corp members hand after we finished playing Hail To The Chief. HE was what a Commander-n-Chief should be.
Send a message that America needs the leadership President Reagan demonstrated three decades ago!
With a former FMLN guerrilla leader leading in the elections in El Salvador it is worth reflecting on the US *** up. In 1983 President Reagan insisted that the FMLN and Nicaragua's Sandinistas were an imminent threat as Soviet-Cuban proxies, requiring a massive commitment of US military aid. In El Salvador it cost six billion dollars and led to 75,000 dead, mostly civilians killed by the U.S.-backed death squads.
Slightly off topic, and not related to India. But speaking of economy then US President Reagan gives a precise and befitting reply to the Left, AAP, Congress and the rest of communists and Co. If you really care for uplifting the society and removing poverty, then get them employment, instead of short-term freebies and concessions like 'Food Security Bill' and free electricity and water, parallels to which can be found in the Obamacare policy of US, which is turning their economy into a ruined castle. So who among Kejriwal, Rahul Gandhi, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Mayawati, Brinda Karat and Narendra Modi gives you freebies, and who gives you a "JOB" to earn your own bread? Of course, it's Modi who gives job. And the rest of them just distribute free stuff on the taxpayers money. There's an old saying - "Give the man a fish, and he'll have a supple dinner. Give the man a fishing rod, and he'll dine all his life." Hence, vote for Modi if you want the fish curry to keep coming on your dining table!
As President Reagan famously said, now is the time to stand firm and raise a banner not of "pale pastels, but bold colors." You and I cannot afford to be silent. We must make it "unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people."
President Reagan i wont comply...President Reagan we need you,Abraham Lincoln,Geaorge Washington,we need you all,Thomas Jefferson,Nixon,The Rosevelts...we need you to save us from tyranny!!!
President Reagan told the following JOKE: (In light of the poor accomodations at the Olympics) "In Russia, it takes 10 years for a citizen to get a car...You put your order in after paying a down payment... Well, one day a guy who ordered one, called the factory, and asked, "When will you be delivering my car...Morning or afternoon?" The guy at the factory said, "What does it matter...That's 10 years from now?" The customer said, "Well I need to know, cuz the plummer is coming in the morning."
right on president Reagan... they have taking that out of our schools, now they want our guns.
During World War II, the world united against fascism but at the end of the conflict, the USSR emerged as the new enemy. Therefore, it was decided that Germany would be split in two. A wall was eventually erected in the middle of Berlin to keep the citizens of the East from escaping. The Wall became a symbol of communist tyranny. With the possibility of a nuclear war between the Soviets and NATO still looming, President Reagan gave a speech June 12, 1987, in West Berlin. Taking advantage of new openness in Moscow, he spoke against communism and called for the destruction of the Berlin Wall. It was ultimately opened in 1989 and torn down in 1990.
President Reagan, correctly believed the 2 greatest threats to America are Obamas favorite causes: Collectivism and the build-up of Soviet Russia. And today the Unification of the Muslim world We who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

Syria's children suffers! NBC News will be airing a segment. My heart cries out for these innocent victims, just as my heart cries out for children suffering WORLD WIDE. I pray that non violent solutions be found soon. I pray that the American Government don't get involved in another WAR, regardless of the situation. In my lifetime, I've seen our government over the last 50 years, floating around the world placing bandages to all conflicts and calling them a success. Well, the bandages didn't hold leaving wounds that didn't heal. In essence, WAR DON'T WORK! No more using our young men and women as pawns in your war games. " Mikhail Gorbachev, Tear down this wall" powerful words from then President Reagan back in 1987. Here we are today... hmm God help us.
Good early Morning Neighbors, It's a glorious 37 degrees already this morning. The morning clouds should burn off for a bright sunny day with highs in the 50's again. Tomorrow will be close to 60 degrees. Wednesday has a forecasted high in the 50's with the potential for snow!?!?!?! I'm no weatherman, but me thinks Mother nature (or the meteorologist) is definitely confused. The sunset after 7 PM is a welcome sight. It means spring is almost here. It also means the 6PM - 6AM shift actually gets to see some sunlight for the first time in months. I found them in the parking lot at shift change pointing at the sun and grunting. Luckily I had a lighter to get their attention and focus them back to earth. Shout out to Mrs. Hershey, - Only 9 days, 12 hours and 8 minutes until spring!!!

PROFILE: SETTING A COURSE by John Stifler '92G closeup of the Ambassador speaking. MADAME AMBASSADOR: Cynthia Shepard Perry '72G CYNTHIA SHEPARD PERRY WAS A school girl in Lost Creek, Indiana, when she de-cided to grow up to be ambassador to Kenya. She got the ambassador part right, and Kenya was close. In 1986, President Reagan appointed Perry U.S. Ambassador to Sierra Leone. When she finished her three-year tour in that East African nation, she accepted an ambassadorship to Burundi under President George Bush Sr. Perry has since served as chief of education and human resources in the African Bureau of the U.S. Agency for International Development. She is honorary consul general of the nation of Senegal. In July of last year she was appointed U.S. director of the African Development Bank. One day last October, Perry, who received her doctorate from the UMass School of Education in 1972, told her story to UMass students in a Globalization and Governance course taught by political science professor Peter H ...
Has the World’s Super Power Lost The Chance to Lead in Energy? In 1980 the Magnetic Fusion Energy Engineering Act passed the House and Senate with virtually zero opposition and was signed by President Carter in October 1980. The goal was to demonstrate clean, cheap, safe, and virtually unlimited fusion power by 1995 and to have it commercialized and on the power grid by 2005. It did not happen but not because of science. Here is the REAL STORY on the “Death of Fusion.” In 1984, President Reagan's administration had taken a hard line against the Soviet Union. Under the Reagan Doctrine, the Reagan administration began providing military support to anti-communist armed movements. The Reagan administration also persuaded the Saudi Arabian oil companies to increase oil production. This led to a three-times drop in the prices of oil, and oil was the main source of Soviet export revenues. Following the USSR's previous large military buildup, President Reagan ordered an enormous peacetime defense build ...

1980 & the election of President Reagan was a turning point, creating today's political polarization, says Lee.
My friend the great Hank Racette has written another post which expresses my own thoughts about a subject better than I can express them myself. Hank, once again, you are absolutely right. Quoting Hank: "I miss Ronald Reagan. I miss George Bush, but I really miss Ronald Reagan. There is a scene from late in Reagan's second term that has stayed with me. It was a moment at the end of a meeting between President Reagan and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, but I forget the details of date and location. The video shows him stepping out of a building with the Soviet president and immediately running into the inevitable barrage of journalists and photographers. Perhaps Reagan was already experiencing the effects of his as-yet-undiagnosed Alzheimer's disease. Perhaps he was merely fatigued. In any event, he was visibly rattled by the mob, suddenly paralyzed and, apparently, confused. He appeared, in that moment, old and vulnerable. It lasted for only a few seconds, and then Gorbachev put his arm around our pre ...

Reagan's Assasin granted 17 days a month outside mental hospital Add infoto your address book to ensure continued delivery. DailySanity Newsletter from Conservative-Daily.com Federal Judge Approves Reagan Assassin’s Request for More Time with Family! ifever Dear Conservative, A Federal Judge has ruled that John Hinckley, Jr. – the man who shot Ronald Reagan – shall be allowed to leave his Virginia mental hospital to spend 17 days each month at home with family members. Hinckley shot Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981. The assassin's bullet pierced the President's lung, but three other people, including the President's Press Secretary, were also shot in the assassination attempt. Hinckley was subdued and President Reagan was rushed to the Hospital where he underwent surgery. Hinckley was charged with attempting to assassinate the President. The Defense argued that Hinckley was not guilty, by reason of insanity. It was claimed that John Hinckley shot the President in an attempt to impress actress Jodie . ...

Ba ha ha ha Subject: Hinckley Prison Release Hinckley Prison Release You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young man who shot President Reagan in 1981. Hinckley was absolutely obsessed with movie star Jodie Foster and, in his twisted mind, loved Jodie to the point that to make himself well known to her, he attempted to assassinate President Reagan. There is speculation Hinckley may soon be released as having been rehabilitated. Consequently, you will appreciate the following letter from Nancy Reagan to John Hinckley. We could all learn so much from this elegant and gracious lady. To: John Hinckley From: Mrs. Nancy Reagan My family and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your recovery. In our country's spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we want you to know that we bear no grudge against you for shooting Ronnie.

THE DAMAGE OF AMERICA ...DONE BY R. REAGAN .GOV OF CA 1967–1975...PRESIDENT ..(1981–1989). One month prior to the election, President Carter had signed the Mental Health Systems Act, which had proposed to continue the federal community mental health centers program, although with some additional state involvement. Consistent with the report of the Carter Commission, the act also included a provision for federal grants With President Reagan and the Republicans taking over, the Mental Health Systems Act was discarded before the ink had dried and the CMHC funds were simply block granted to the states. President Reagan never understood mental illness. Like Richard Nixon, he was a product of the Southern California culture that associated psychiatry with Communism. Two months after taking office, Reagan was shot by John Hinckley a young man with untreated schizophrenia as well as living in the streets, due to the closing of mental hospitals . Reagan was also exposed to the consequences of untreated menta . ...
James "Jim" Brady...American Badarse. He was shot in the head while defending President Reagan's life. I don't care who the President is, I don't care how much I agree or disagree with him at the time, but if you try to kill my President, you suck (whether you be a Liberal, Conservative, or anything in between). I don't know how John Hinckley didn't get hung for that. When Clinton bombed Iraq for them planning an assassination attempt on former President Bush, I was all for it. You don't do that. You don't try to kill our President. I put our President first whoever he is at the time no matter what,provided that they came into power legally. Jim Kelly is a hero as is anyone who's been hurt while doing their duty in our nation's service.

At a February 1983 Prayer Breakfast, President Reagan joked, “A very lovely teacher was talking to her class of young boys, and she asked, ‘How many of you would like to go to heaven?’ And all the hands instantly shot into the air at once, except one, and she was astounded. And she said, ‘Charlie, you mean you don't want to go to heaven?’ He said, ‘Sure, I want to go to heaven, but not with that bunch.’
So former Senator Fred Thompson does a folksy TV pitch for reverse mortgages, and has to drop in the fact that they were authorized in a bill " signed into law by president Reagan ". First of all I always liked President Reagan , but trust me this was probably part of some huge omnibus bill , and probably never hit his radar screen. The ad weasels know their target market, and want them to think that this somehow has the implied endorsement of the beloved former President.
Went to the Reagan Library today, It was magical to see the ol Green Marine One just like it was the day I saw it land at the White House in 1986 except that time I saluted then President Reagan and he saluted me. I was just a private at the time and I remember thinking, "That is the big boss and he just acknowledged you." Love him or hate him, Ronald Reagan was a mighty and powerful leader and our nation is at a loss without him. They also had an exhibit on the tech of the world of espionage that was utterly fantastic, chock full of artifacts from both sides of the Cold War. I learned today a fact that I was totally unaware of and saw and heard a working demonstration of it as well, laser beams can and are used as a Very effective long distance listening device that can be focused, directed, and amplified with absolutely no physical recording device, ie; like microphones or wired bugs installed at the point of observation.

A good man and a great President! I was in Berlin, Germany, on June 12, 1987 when President Reagan spoke at the Brandenburg Gate and told Mikhail Gorbachev; "Mr. Gorbachev TEAR DOWN THIS WALL". I was at the US Air Force Base (Tempelhof Airport) assisting The Secret Service with preparing for President Reagan's departure; when President Regan made this remark.
President Reagan would be called "A Self-Educated Conservative". Just look at books in his library!
The 11 Principles That Still Hold True Today The Reagan philosophy was successful because it was simple. Rather than relying on the elites to guide every decision, Reagan instead looked to tradition and what Adam Smith called the invisible hand. It's this simplicity that captures Reagan's brilliance. In his book, Kengor distills Reagan's philosophy down to 11 principles. It's a simple list: freedom, faith, family, sanctity and dignity of human life, American exceptionalism, the Founders' wisdom and vision, lower taxes, limited government, peace through strength, anti-Communism and belief in the individual. I won't argue with Kengor's list... even though, from my personal experience with President Reagan, I would contend that the list could be boiled down to five simpler principles. Regardless of whether the list is 11, 10, or even five, the amazing aspect about President Reagan - which those who knew him would attest to - was how comfortable he was with ideas, especially the ideas of freedom. These princi ...
Went to the Reagan Library today. Got to see a lot of history that I had forgotten.too bad we couldn't have "cloned" President Reagan.we do need him badly these days.
The current Republican talking point is that they can't trust the President to enforce the law. What did they say in the 1980s when President Reagan decided to stop enforcing The Sherman Antitrust Act that had been law since 1890. He didn't try to get the law repealed, he just stopped enforcing the law. Every member of Congress and every President since then has been complicit in this failure to enforce the law of the land.

Fun fact for the day - Did you know the design of Ronald Reagan's seal was created entirely by her plankowner crew with historical assistance provided by staff members at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library foundation. The red border that rings the ship's seal is similar to the distinctive red rim that defines the White House china designed for the Reagans during their White House years. Four gold stars represent President Reagan's 40th presidency and his four pillars of freedom: individual liberty; economic opportunity; global democracy; and national pride. "Peace through Strength" was a recurring theme of the President's life in public service. The aircraft carrier is positioned by the West Coast, representing President Reagan's two terms as Governor of California and the ship's homeport in the Pacific Fleet. The three aircraft with their patriotic contrails symbolize the three major military operations the President directed during his tenure: Operation Urgent Fury (Grenada/1983); Operation El Dorad ...

Open letter to my congressman: Dear Congressman Fortenberry, I was once young, and as one might expect, a college-bred liberal, certain beyond all reason that government holds the solutions to every social and economic ill that confronts us. But time has passed. Life and experience have taught me that President Reagan, for any of his perceived faults, had it right: Government is not the answer; Government is the problem. The most benign critique of Government that can now be offered is that it is ruled by the Law of Unintended Consequences, i.e.: every government intervention has the potential to cause more harm than good because the ideological underpinnings underlying those interventions are predisposed to ignore any rational arguments against them. A more realistic assessment, I think, is that government, the same as the corporate world, simply attracts the power hungry, the unscrupulous, the opportunistic and the evil, because government provides a power structure that is easily manipulated to the adv ...
The text of my speech from tonight. I did ad lib a bit, but this was the written version. Moreover, you shall choose able men from all the people–God-fearing men of truth who hate unjust gain–and place them over thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens, to be their rulers. (Exodus 18:21 AMP) Ronald Reagan June 30, 1982 Our loyalty lies with little taxpayers, not big spenders. What our critics really believe is that those in Washington (New Boston) know better how to spend your money than you, the people, do. But we're not going to let them do it, period.

Friends and family I could use your help! I'm putting together a blog post for VisitCape next week on presidential visits to Cape Girardeau. I have good information on President Taft's visit in 1909, but I'd love to check out resources on President Reagan's visit in 1988 and President Clinton's visit in '96. (Focusing on visits from acting presidents.) Turns out, a few years out of college and my research skills are limited to what Google has to tell me, so any direction you could point me in would be most helpful!

Whitney Houston, a tremendous singer & drug addict overdoses, dies & the media trip over themselves with stories & coverage. Seymour Hoffman, a talented actor & drug addict dies from an overdose and the media outlets go round the clock with stories, photos & interviews. Shirley Temple Black a world wide movie star, singer, dancer & former United States Ambassador dies from natural causes & the media barely talked about it. The White House never said a word. You know why? Shirley Temple Black was a Republican Conservative Ambassador picked by President Reagan. Just a couple of things that make you say hm.
Ronald Reagan on the Divinity of Christ In a March 1978 letter to a liberal Methodist minister who expressed doubts about Christ’s divinity—and accused the then future President Reagan of a “limited Sunday school level theology” —Ronald Reagan responded: “Perhaps it is true that Jesus never used the word ‘Messiah’ with regard to himself (although I’m not sure that he didn’t) but in John 1, 10 and 14 he identifies himself pretty definitely and more than once. Is there really any ambiguity in his words: ‘I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me?’… In John 10 he says, ‘I am in the Father and the Father in me.’ And he makes reference to being with God, ‘before the world was,’ and sitting on the ‘right hand of God.’… These and other statements he made about himself, foreclose in my opinion, any question as to his divinity. It doesn’t seem to me that he gave us any choice; either he was what he said he was or he was the world’s gre ...
To set the record straight, more recently, President Reagan, the patron saint of the right, issued 213 executive orders. The first President George Bush issues 166, the second Bush issued 173, and President Obama 147.

Hate that commercial with Fred Thompson assuring seniors that reverse mortgages are a good deal because President Reagan signed it into law.
Wanted: Another Reagan (PatriotPost.us Feb. 2, 2007) Last month the Czech capital of Prague announced its decision to erect a monument to honor Ronald Reagan. And why not? Similar monuments to the man already exist in Budapest and Warsaw, and elsewhere in Eastern Europe. It is entirely proper that our nation's 40th President be memorialized in cities once shrouded by the Iron Curtain. According to one Czech paper, after his 1983 "Evil Empire" speech, "President Reagan was probably the most hated and ridiculed of all the Western leaders by the former communist regime. The communist media relentlessly condemned what they called 'Reagan's war-mongering' and the arms race." Then again, these were state-run media whose leading insights on America came courtesy of CNN. ... on 12 June 1987, despite the objections of the State Department and the National Security Council, President Reagan uttered these forceful and historic words before listeners at the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin: "General-Secretary Gorbache ...
Does everybody remember the Iran-Contra scandal back in the 1980's? President Reagan, George Bush Sr, Oliver North, and the CIA were selling weapons to Iran at inflated prices, and using the profit to fund the Contras in Nicaragua. This, of course, was all done in violation of the Boland Act. They claimed that they secretly sold weapons to Iran as part of a deal to free U.S. hostages that were being detained by Hezbollah, though later information indicated that the hostage situation was kept ongoing by fractions within our very own government to later be used for political gain. The CIA was also flying weapons from America directly to the contras, and in return, the Contras were loading these planes with cocaine, which was flown back into America by the CIA to be sold for profit. Part of this profit would also be used to help fund the Contra effort in Nicaragua. "Freeway" Ricky Ross, an ordinary citizen who got caught up selling drugs in South Central Los Angeles, ended up being the CIA's main pusher-man, ...
Do you remember the promises made by President Reagan and his Financial Advisors back in the 1980's that "Trickle Down Economics" would help the Top 1% of American wage-earners as well as the lower 99% of the wage earners in the USA?

Dear Reader, There's a story developing now that may scare you. A true threat to the Fed's… actually a true threat to every central bank's… cartel-like control over your financial security has risen up. Steve Hanke was a Senior Economic Adviser to President Reagan. He's calling this phenomenon "a competitive threat to all currencies." He's right. 36 U.S. cities across 20 states have now abandoned our dollar. But that's not the only currency in danger. People are abandoning the euro, the pound, yen… you name it. Warren Buffett has warned that we should "fear paper money." But it's not just paper money. In China they're actually abandoning their gold. So no money is sacred now. The Chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, recently held a secret meeting in a remote cottage in the English countryside to discuss what's happening… and what's about to unfold. He revealed this story is "changing society." Unfortunately, the mainstream media is keeping the American people in the dark about this. That's why we did ...
So I'm now taking care of my stepdad's affairs as he is in a long term care facility with hopes he will recover from a fractured hip. It is heartbreaking to go through his things as I have been faced with making the decision he can no longer live alone.

Steve Lonegan is without argument one of the most conservative politicians out there honoring President Reagan's birthday at his announcement for Congress today, and all the haters can do is try to attack Lonegan for not being conservative enough. Give me a break please, lol!
Fun fact: The gentleman to the left of President Reagan is Eugene Allen aka The Butler & to whom Cecil Gaines character is based on. Here he is, seen overlooking Michael Jackson.
To whom it may concern; Reagan did not leave us with a hundred eighty nine percent debt. He balanced the budget in California and then ran for president in United States. When President Carter took over, the interest rate was 2 percent; When he left, the interest rate was 18 percent and we had 50 people kidnapped in an American Embassy which Carter was unable to bring back, and President Reagan simply told the kidnappers that if they did not have our 50 hostages back to us within 24 hours after he took office, then he was going to go in and get them which he successfully accomplished within the 24 hours. He was entirely different than the Bush administration who wanted to continue to spend 12 billion dollars a month to stay at war until its finished. I would invite you to restudy your history. While I was out of work with Reagan program as well, he helped me get the training that I needed to get a job and I ended up getting a far better job than I ever imagined. As a Republican, I would have loved to see ...
President Reagan raised debt ceiling 18 times, compared with six times for President Obama:
"Though I often disagree with Republicans, I never learned to hate them the way the far right that now controls their party seems to hate President Obama and the Democrats. After all, President Eisenhower sent federal troops to my home state to integrate Little Rock Central High and built the interstate highway system. And as governor, I worked with President Reagan on welfare reform and with President George H.W. Bush on national education goals. I am grateful to President George W. Bush for PEPFAR, which is saving the lives of millions of people in poor countries and to both Presidents Bush for the work we've done together after the South Asia tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian earthquake." President Bill Clinton We're tired of the hatred. Our company is called Onward for a reason. Hatred is usually a focus on things you don't like that occurred in the past. It's our corporate philosophy that it's imperative we instead of dwelling on the past.
The vast majority of the post I have read are in unison. The Vacationer In Chief's "speech" last night was nothing more that a pep rally void of anything resembling the facts. Parading a wounded vet around as if he really cares is insulting to all those that have ever served. To out and out threaten to bypass the House if he doesn't get his way shows a new level of disrespect for the Constitution, The House of Representatives, the Supreme Court Justices sitting just a few feet away and the American people. FYI, a leader doesn't demand respect, they earn it. President Ronald Reagan and Speaker of The House Newt Gingrich got things done by working with a Democrat controlled House. They did so because they respected the Constitution and worked within the system as it was designed. President Reagan would have never dreamed of standing before the entire nation and basically say "to *** with the Constitution'. At least one thing has changed. He didn't outright blame anything on President Bush. No, now he i ...
I will say overall I am disappointed in President Obama's Statete of the Union. He sounds like a person who has given up on the idea of coming together to get things done. I may have disagreed with some policies in years past, but at least he was calling for both sides to work together. Are Republicans playing hard ball yes, but so are Democrats when it comes to Republican proposals. President Obama is not the first President to have a congress who vehemently opposed his policies. President Eisenhower, and Johnson got Civil Rights Acts passed through Congress for the first time in three quarters of a century. President Reagan got a lot accomplished working with Ted Kennedy, and Tip O'Neill. President Clinton was able to accomplish a great deal of his agenda working with Newt Gingrich, and Denny Hastard. Clinton worked with a congress who was just as willing to shut the government down as this do nothing Congress. Everyone should remember there are two houses of Congress. Giving up on bipartisanship and co ...
President Reagan once said, politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards and if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book. John Mahama is very smart. He has started with his first coup d'état. He will soon write my first and second gears.hmmm not bad for a thief.
Obama is looking more and more like an ideal Republican president with every passing day. The Washington Post reports that the Administration is on the verge of giving companies like Dow Chemical, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin hundreds of millions in tax breaks, which drops directly to their bottom line. The concession involves research and development tax credits. They were launched under President Reagan in 1981, intended to be a temporary program, out of concern that the US was falling behind Japan in innovation. The problem with this scheme is that it frequently winds up subsidizing activities that companies would have engaged in anyhow. And notice how it did nothing to stop the dismemberment of great corporate research efforts like Bell Labs. ... One has to wonder how many giveaways Obama will engineer before he leaves office. Presidential libraries are expensive, after all, so you gotta keep those donors happy.
From "American Minute" for January 28th: Seventy-three seconds after lift-off, on JANUARY 28, 1986, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded, killing its entire seven member crew, which included a high school teacher-the first private citizen to fly aboard the craft. In his address to the nation, President Ronald Reagan stated: "Today is a day for mourning...a national loss... The members of the Challenger crew were pioneers... The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave. The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future." Reagan continued: "The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and 'slipped the surly bonds of earth' to 'touch the face of God.'" President Reagan added: "There's a coincidence today. On this day 390 years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake died aboard ship off the coast of P ...
SEAL TEAM 6 FAMILIES' SUSPICIONS OF GOV'T GROW 'I believe someone on their side definitely made a deal with somebody on our side' Published: 09/01/2013 at 6:24 PM JACK MINORAbout Jack Minor is a journalist and researcher who served in the United States Marine Corps under President Reagan. Also a former pastor, he has written hundreds of articles and been interviewed about his work on many TV and radio outlets. More than two years after President Obama reassured the father of a member of SEAL Team 6 that the government would look into the death of his son, the father is still waiting for a response, and his suspicions are growing. On Aug. 6, 2011, Taliban forces were waiting for a Chinook helicopter carrying members of the elite unit SEAL Team 6 to approach its landing site. The helicopter was attacked from three sides in a coordinated ambush. Although it was known Taliban forces were in the area, the SEALs did not have the air cover that was a standard procedure for missions of that type. During the ambus ...
Since we are on a roll about old memos, I was working at the Beethoven office when President Reagan was shot and the printer with API, UPI, NASDAQ was printing out stories as they were being released. Later the stories would be updated and some would be removed completely. I have IN PRINTING that James Brady was dead, and later they recanted. I have almost a full box of tractor feed paper printout of the event.
Peggy Noonan, who once wrote speeches for President Reagan, is looking forward to President Obama’s 2014 State of the Union address with a great deal of ennui. No one, she suggests, is listening to the president any more.
Operation Desert Storm President Bush In the 1988 election, George Bush and his running mate. Dan Quayle, won 54% of the popular vote and 426 of the 538 electoral votes, soundly beating Democrat Michael Dukakis. The first major foreign crisis for the United States after the end of the Cold War presented itself in August 1990. Saddam Hussein, the dictator of Iraq, ordered his army across the border into tiny Kuwait. This was no ordinary act of aggression. Iraq's army was well equipped. The United States had provided massive military aid to Iraq during their eight-year war with Iran, giving them the fourth largest army in the world. Kuwait was a major supplier of oil to the United States. The Iraqi takeover posed an immediate threat to neighboring Saudi Arabia, another major exporter of oil. If Saudi Arabia fell to Saddam, Iraq would control one-fifth of the world's oil supply. All eyes were on the White House, waiting for a response. President Bush, who succeeded President Reagan, stated simply: "This will ...

Jan 20, 1981: President Reagan became the oldest president to take office (69 years and 349 days).
On this day in American History, President Kennedy was sworn in as the youngest President ever. On this same day ,President Reagan was sworn in as the oldest ever. 5 yrs ago, America's First Black Man to become President was sworn in. For better or for worse, these 3 Men changed the dynamics of this Great Country Forever. Each man struggled with the Nation they served but found common ground ,of purpose, because off Love of Country. Politics and finger pointing aside, these were and are Great Men, flawed by character but poignantly graceful in their fight for "humanities" best well-being. Not all decisions, appointments, laws or veto's made sense, but how many of ours decisions really turn out best for everybody. Celebrate the History .
When Character Was King: A rather convenient piece of history is missing from this list. The day of the inauguration of President Reagan (Jan 20) our hostages were released. How did this happen? Because on January 8th a message was delivered from President elect Reagan to the Charge d'Affairs of Iran in Ottawa Canada. Here is the message: To The People of Iran and to the Ayatollah Khomenei in particular: You have breached international law and convention in kidnapping American Diplomatic personnel and holding them against their will. The previous President Mr. Carter requested their immediate release, a request which you have ignored. As you are aware I will in short order be signing the official documents for the transition of the Office of the Presidency of the United States and upon doing so have already prepared my first order of business. You are hereby requested to release our American Diplomatic Service personnel prior to attaining the Office of President of the United States. If our personnel are ...

When Steve got murdered I sat and wrote a lot of poems about him, to him and about all the things he liked his favorite people. I even wrote them to the men who took his life!!

As an American and a Marine veteran I feel it is my duty to spread the truth about the direction America has taken over the course of my thirty years on Earth. Everyone has their own lens through which they view politics and history in general, but I would like to share with you my perspective based on different influences and experiences throughout the years. I was born in 1983, Ronald Reagan was President of the United States in this same year he delivered a speech to the National Association of Evangelicals labeling the U.S.S.R (Soviet Union) as the “Evil Empire.” American had been involved in the Cold War for several years and Communism was on its last leg as President Reagan said Communism would be “an ash heap of history.” Ronald Reagan was reelected in 1984 in a 49-state landslide over liberal Democrat Walter Mondale.

Is it appropriate to say Rest In Peace, Ariel Sharon? He was a "brilliant" warrior (the title of his autobiography) whose entire professional life as a politician and a soldier was based on waging war to defend Zionism's--not its survival but its political supremacy-- over Palestine. He defied the Israeli parliament, lied to his PM (Menachen Begin), betrayed President Reagan. He invaded Lebanon, unleashed the maronite Falangist party upon the Palestinians of Beruit, stubbornly refused to intervene and stop the most brutal genocidal massacre of thousands of Palestinians by the Falangists army. [He later declared this was his biggest mistake, but that was stated as he tried to defend himself against charges of committing major war crimes.] As Prime Minister he marched his military entourage into the Temple Mount --thus demonstrating that Israel had sovereignty over one of the most holy shrines in all of Islam, The Rock of the Covenant. This reckless act provoked the Second Intifada that systematically disma ...
This Day in History: The Cold War 11 January 1989 Reagan gives his farewell address After eight years as president of the United States, Ronald Reagan gives his farewell address to the American people. In his speech, President Reagan spoke with particular enthusiasm about the foreign policy achievements of his administration. In his speech, Reagan declared that America "rediscovered" its commitment to world freedom in the 1980s. The United States was "respected again in the world and looked to for leadership." The key, according to the president, was a return to "common sense" that "told us that to preserve the peace, we'd have to become strong again after years of weakness." Reagan proudly enumerated the successes of his vigorous foreign policy: achieving peace in the Persian Gulf, forcing the Soviets to begin departing from Afghanistan, and negotiating for the withdrawal of Vietnamese troops from Cambodia and Cuban forces from Angola. These efforts were all waged against communism, the ideology that Re ...

(For my non-politically-minded friends, please pardon the following open letter to Mr. Reince Priebus - chairman of the republican national committee) Dear Mr. Priebus, I am a lifelong Republican, have never voted for anything but the Republican candidate in any election in my life - since my first vote for George Bush in the primary against soon-to-be President Reagan! - and I want to take a moment to tell you why I am frustrated with the Republican party right now. 1) I am frustrated by emails like the one to which I am replying. The strident tone, the subject line with "Obama" and its not-so-subtle disrespect by leaving off his title, and the constant anti-democrat tone all leave me empty. I do not want to concentrate on what they are doing right now. We have seen that being negative may garner base support, but it is not attractive to the THINKERS in the world - those of us who want to move beyond criticism to new ideas. Frankly, you are appealing to an ever-shrinking demographic. 2) I am frustrated b ...

President Reagan forgave his assassin, John Hinckley - by Dr. Melvin Banks at
First, make an appointment with the Lord early in the morning. We start the day with God because we cannot give him hours we've already spent. President Reagan once asked the Air Force One pilot why he tried to land so close to the beginning of the runway. The pilot grinned and explained, "Mr. President, all pilots know you can't use the runway that's behind you." Second, use this time for personal worship. We "enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise" (Psalm 100:4). When we glorify God, his Spirit draws us into his presence. At the beginning of his ministry, our Lord set an example for us: "Early in the morning, Jesus got up, left the house while it was still dark outside, and went to a deserted place to pray" (Mark 1:35). Will you emulate your Master today?

Somber thought for the new year :( I remember growing up with President Reagan as my president, Although I didn't agree with him completely, or make him out to be a god like most conservatives do today, I loved seeing him speak, he had a way of making you feel everything was going to be ok by his unwavering optimism and decisiveness. Never would I have dreamed 25 years after the Gipper left office, today, January 1, 2014, myself, as a self employed 42 year old man, wouldn't be able to afford his health insurance in the wealthiest and most powerful country ever known to man, not because he doesn't make enough, but because the government took it upon itself to price him out of the market, and to add insult to injury they will penalize him for not making enough to pay for the 100% government mandated rate increase. The America Reagan spoke of truly is dead, I don't know what this place is, but it's not the shinning city upon a hill anymore.

Obama blames President Reagan for declining trust in the government…
The Social Security time bomb, activated 25 years ago by President Reagan, will run out of time. All of the previous administrations knew that spending Social Security revenue, as if it were general revenue, was wrong and was a violation of both federal law and the public trust. But, they all had the luxury of knowing that the raided Social Security money would not be needed to pay benefits while they were still in office. However, President Obama learned early in his presidency that, unless the government ended the raiding and began repaying the money that had already been raided, Social Security would face a major financial crisis during his presidency. Beginning in 2015, and every year after that, payroll tax revenue will be insufficient to pay full benefits. This was known in 1983 when the Social Security “fix” was enacted. The plan was to draw down the large reserve that is supposed to be in the trust fund and use that money to supplement payroll tax revenue so that full benefits could be paid un ...

In 1982 Israel invaded Lebanon and President Reagan sent 1800 marines to Beirut to act as peace keepers. Israel resented the interference and used the US presence to commit a False Flag operation that killed 242 marines. The purpose was to align the US with Israel and create animosity toward the Arab world. BEIRUT MARINE BOMBING “I reported that Marines had been sent there to become the focus of a major incident. The Mossad is to arrange for a number of our Marines to be killed in an incident that will be blamed on Arabs! This will be used to inflame American public opinion to help us lead into war including ultimately nuclear war,” – Dr. Beter, a Pentagon analyst, November 3, 1982. 242 fellow Marines fell victim to Israeli false flag operation – just like the Israeli attack on USS Liberty to make Muslims and Arabs look as enemies of Americans.

I am watching infamous assassinations on the military channel. The episode is the one when John Hinkley jr tries to kill President Reagan. I'm sure everyone over 30 remembers that event in March of 1981. John Hinkley said the reason he tried to kill Reagan was because he was in love with the actress Jodie Foster and was obsessed with the movie Taxi Driver which was about a guy who kills a president to impress a prostitute. Jodie Foster was in that movie. I'm thinking to myself okay you *** do you really think that by killing someone you are going to make someone love you? Some people are beyond my comprehension. Apparently the guy who shot Reagan is still in a mental hospital in Washington DC to this day. He gets free visits to his family and basically treated like royalty. Something sure is wrong with that picture eh??? Yet we have people who are rotting in jail can't see there families because they were in possession of marijuana! This guy tried to kill the president for no reason!
This is what the Republican senate did for the people of South Africa during Reagan period! I am Proud to be a Republican... Senate, 78 to 21, Overrides Reagan’s Veto and Imposes Sanctions on South Africa By STEVEN V. ROBERTS, Special to the New York Times WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 — The Senate voted today to override President Reagan's veto of legislation imposing stiff economic sanctions on South Africa. In doing so it rejected his pleas for support as he prepares to meet Mikhail S. Gorbachev, the Soviet leader, in Iceland. The vote was 78 to 21, or 12 votes more than the two-thirds vote necessary to override. Since the House also voted to rebuff the President earlier this week, the sanctions bill became law as soon as the Senate voted to override the President's veto. The vote today capped a two-year effort by opponents of apartheid to force the Reagan Administration into exerting more pressure on the Pretoria Government to change its policies of racial separation. The legislation will ban all new invest ...

Person I am thinking about today is John Lennon, who was killed 33 years ago yesterday. His death by firearm was one of a series of successful and attempted assassinations by gun in a short period: President Reagan and Pope John Paul II were both badly wounded by gunfire just a couple months after this. The current firestorm over gun control really started with Lennon's murder, as Reagan's press secretary, James Brady, was also badly injured in that March 1981 incident. Brady went on to press for major gun control legislation requiring background checks.

Some who supported Apartheid wanted Mr. Mandela killed before they sent to prison. They charged him with treason for fighting to free all South Africans. His skills as a lawyer were so great, he used their laws to get prison time. The trial lasted five years. He served 27 years and was freed due to unrest in South Africa and world sanctions placed on the South African economic system. Our Congress had to over ride President Reagan's veto of a law forcing America's economic sanctions on South Africa. After his freedom, he was the first democratically elected President of South Africa. He made his former oppressor his deputy in his government. He did jail or kill his former oppressors; he brought his country together: Blacks and Whites. He served only one five year term and retired; unheard of by African dictators. Some bitter white South Africans are trying to change history and call him a killer. But we know better; more importantly God knows better. Rest in peace Mr. Mandela; you are in the ...
In 1986, President Reagan vetoed(and was overridden) legislature to sanction South Africa for apartheid laws. Though it was a decision that was influenced heavily by the Cold War, it goes to show that Washington has almost never been unified on any major decisions.

So, the Million Dollar questionis; How does the Uinted States protect our skies and those skies of our allowed from enemy combative drones from blowing up our buildings and at what cost? Now, that is a really good question. I mean a really, really, good question. So, back in the early 80's under, then, President Reagan's term of office the military was engineering and initiating what was known as 'The Star Wars Project' which brought with it a lot of protests and controversy from around the world. So, let's jump forward 33 years and the Pentagon is holding high level meetings in regards to bringing back 'The Star Wars Project', but this time with a new twist Satellites armed with lasers, now why do I see that as a very dangerous situation and something that the superworlds would highly opposed to and prepared to go to war over. o_O
Mikhail Gorbachev was invited to the US by President Reagan. At the press conference at the airport in NYC, he was asked by a journalist, "Mr. Gorbachev, if in 1963 Nikita Khrushchev had been assassinated instead of John Kennedy, how would history have changed?" Mr. Gorbachev thought for a second and replied, "I don't think Onassis would have married Mrs. Khrushchev."
Today, on World AIDS Day, we remember all those who lost their lives and those currently living with AIDS. This day is a very personal day for me. Not only as a *** man, but as a nephew and cousin. Some lost lovers, some sisters and brothers, mothers and fathers, and some sons and daughters. My family lost three wonderful people and nothing could ever replace them. The best way to honor their memory is to fight for a cure and show compassion to those currently afflicted. We also remember the silence of President Reagan. “What a horrible feeling that is, to know that if the disease [AIDS] had primarily affected PTA presidents, or priests, or white teenage girls, the epidemic would have been ended years earlier, and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved.” ― David Levithan, Two Boys Kissing And we are grateful for the support of President Obama. "Each year on World AIDS Day, we come together as a global community to fight a devastating pandemic. We remember the ...
I remember being in front of San Francisco City Hall in the 80's signing petitions for then President Reagan to say the words AIDS and begin funding research into what was killing our brothers and sisters!!
On this day in 1993 during a White House ceremony attended by James S. Brady, President Bill Clintonsigns the Brady handgun-control bill into law. The law requires a prospective handgun buyer to wait five business days while the authorities check on his or her background, during which time the sale is approved or prohibited based on an established set of criteria. In 1981, James Brady, who served as press secretary for President Ronald Reagan, was shot in the head by John Hinckley, Jr., during an attempt on President Reagan's life outside a hotel in Washington, D.C. Reagan himself was shot in his left lung but recovered and returned to the White House within two weeks. Brady, the most seriously injured in the attack, was momentarily pronounced dead at the hospital but survived and began an impressive recovery from his debilitating brain injury. During the 1980s, Brady became a leading proponent of gun-control legislation and in 1987 succeeded in getting a bill introduced into Congress. The Brady Bill, as ...
I miss him too. Thank you Catherine Abbitt for sharing and reminding me of this address from President Reagan.
I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT REGRET taking your time reading this article, I promise, especially if you are a Veteran. This amazing article of this incredible HERO will INSPIRE you, may make you cry, let you realize God controls life and death, gives you hope, and lets you realize anyone can do anything if the desire and commitment are there. He is my HERO and I would have been honored to serve with him. There is also a video on my timeline where President Reagan gives a speech then awads him a 2nd Medal of Honor and then MSG Benavidez speaks and it is so funny, then serious. You will cry and laugh. The below information is what Wikipedia says about him. Roy Benavidez From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Master Sergeant Raul (Roy) Perez Benavidez (August 5, 1935 – November 29, 1998) was a member of the Studies and Observations Group of the United States Army. He received the Medal of Honor for his actions in combat near Lộc Ninh, South Vietnam on May 2, 1968. 1952 – 1955 (National Guard) 1955 – 1976 .. ...
The media taught low information citizens to loathe President Reagan. He was supposedly the worst president in history, as far as racial matters are concerned. That was never demonstrated empirically, it was just asserted by a press that hated his conservatism. Their stories always painted him in a light that furthered their own narrative. History has proved that he was right about so much that he believed. We now have a black president, who could be said to be the "polar opposite" of Ronald Reagan. President Obama's policies are being imposed on America in a way that has caused a great deal of angst and consternation. He believes that he has a mandate from his constituency to make his own laws, when Congress does not obey him. That is a novel approach to American governance. Millions of Americans who did not vote for him, knew that he was going to get his way on many things. What they did not bargain for, was that the Republic would be so fundamentally changed, that their representatives would be effect ...
President Obama has very graciously given his subjects Obamacare; for their own good, of course. And now he has given the world a gift of even greater consequence; Iran is now building the Obamabomb. Thank you, Dear Leader. [Obamabomb is an expression coined by Frank Gaffney, assistant secretary of defense under President Reagan.]
GE Capital, the company’s finance arm, was the fastest growing part of the company. By 2007, it contributed almost 40 percent of revenues and almost half of the profits. It generated these revenues and profits by using the company’s triple A financial rating to borrow money at rates even lower than paid by banks for short periods of time and then relending for longer periods to consumers, including sub-prime borrowers. This was a classic house of cards. It should have resulted in the company’s bankruptcy. But when, in September 2008, GE ran out of credit, and the survival of the company suddenly became doubtful, Immelt knew what to do. David Stockman, budget director under President Reagan and professional investor, described what happened: The nation’s number one crony capitalist — Jeff Immelt of GE — jumped on the phone to [Treasury] Secretary Paulson and yelled “fire!” Soon the Fed and FDIC stopped the commercial-paper [short-term corporate debt] unwind dead in its track by essentially ...
A TEACHER: PRESIDENT MIKHAIL SERGEYEVICH GORBACHEV President Gorbachev is the teacher of humanity of the world since 1985. I listened President Gorbachev's election to ruling of Soviet Communist Party in 1985 from Moscow Radio, very interesting time in my life. since 1985 I followed President Gorbachev. I read President Gorbachev's speechs, notes, articles and meetings reports during his Presidency time. I followed President Gorbachev's works with President Reagan of U.S. I read reports of Gorbachev-Reagan Meetings. and, Perestroika and Glasnost: I read books of President Gorbachev about Perestroika and Glasnost in Soviet Union. I read President Gorbachev's comrades' books and articles about Perestroika and Glasnost, for instance, Zagladin's, Yavlinski's, Lebedev's, Krasin's, Roy Medvedev's, and others'. I read reports of Soviet Communist Party about the world politics and I read reports about Soviet Communist Party conferences and Congress, meetings. so, I learned a lot of things from President Gorbachev ...
Before you buy into the election year partisan pablum that will swirl around the nuclear agreement with Iran, take a moment to consider the three notable instances when American leadership helped the world avoid global nuclear war.President Kennedy used direct and indirect engagement to manage the Soviets to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis and together with Premier Khrushchev back the world away from nuclear annihilation.President Nixon opened up engagement with China and that led to both sides redefining their relationship, eventually enabling reformers to move China to a new economic openess.President Reagan accelerated the engagement with the Soviets, even using a Russian proverb "doveryai no proveryai" (trust, but verify) to sell strategic treaties that led to the fall of the Soviet Union and Berlin Wall. History is calling on us again to come to the international table as responsible, clear-headed adults.  The G5 nations (U.S., UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) recognize that history has pres ...

Ronald Reagan was born February 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois, a one-block dot of a town, Ronald Wilson Reagan had a happy childhood but one marred by his father's alcoholism. Jack Reagan, an inveterate storyteller (a gift Ron inherited), worked as a retailer and salesman, but his drinking imperiled his family's economic survival. President Reagan displayed personal fortitude when in March 1981 he survived an assassination attempt by John Hinckley Jr.. Entering the 21st century, Reagan's health declined markedly. He died on June 5, 2004, at his home in Los Angeles, at age 93, making him the longest-lived president. Reagan's body was then flown back across the country to California for a graveside service at sunset in the Simi Valley
I've been given the number 12. 1. I broke my foot as a baby by sitting on it because I was so fat! 2. I come from Creek heritage. 3. At the age of 8, I was lost in New Orleans for what seemed like an eternity. 4. Ginger Norman and I grew up together and rode through our neighborhood on our bikes and go-carts trying to terrorize John Haire! 5. My boot camp coach, Vicky Neven, used to also whip me into shape as my cheerleader coach in high school. 6. I won a Pioneer Electric contest in high school by writing an essay on solar energy and got to go to Washington, D.C. with the most memorable part getting to hear Ronald Reagan speak on the South Lawn. 7. Years later, I got to attend the viewing of President Reagan's body at the Presidential library in Simi Valley, CA. I waited 5 hours by myself , but it was worth it. 8. My sisters still tease me to this day, but I used to read encyclopedias. 9. I used to teach middle school in Redondo Beach, California. Great job! 10. The biggest steak I have ever ...

FIVE BANKS 53% OF THE FED p405 When the Fed was created five New York banks - Citibank, Chase, Chemical Bank, Manufacturers Hanover and Bankers Trust - held a 43% stake in the New York Fed. By 1983 these same five banks owned 53% of the NY Fed. By year 2000, the newly merged Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank combines owned even bigger chunks. The remainder is owned by the European faction of the Eight Families. Collectively they own majority stock in every Fortune 500 corporation and do the bulk of stock and bond trading. In 1955 the above five banks accounted for 15% of all stock trades. By 1985 they were involved in 85.2 of all stock transactions. Still more powerful [than the Federal Reserve] are the investment banks which bear the names of many of the Eight Families. In 1982, President Reagan pushed through SEC Rule 415, which helped consolidate securities underwriting in the hands of six large investment houses owned by the Eight Families: Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Salo ...
50 years ago tomorrow, President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist who was quickly ALSO "put down" by Jack Ruby, before he could talk. Granted, JFK, democrat or not, was a leader of men and was challenging Americans everywhere to do the best they could to make their lives better. Liberal democrats still wrongly compare themselves to him today, and the mainstream media just runs with it, as if they actually WERE comparable, and still believe in the conspiracy theory, wherein THEY believe a herd of conservative Republicans got to Oswald and made him do what he did. It's weird, because when President Reagan was shot and wounded nearly 18 years later by John Hinckley Jr., the media has cited nothing but "mental illness" on behalf of Hinckley, who, as you may remember, watched a lot of "Taxi Driver" shows on television, and had a SERIOUS crush on actress Jodie Foster. The way the media spun it, was that anybody who watches "Taxi Driver" and falls in love with ...

If everyone can buy with no question, that John Hinckley Jr. tried to assassinate President Reagan because he wanted to impress Jodi Foster cuz he was obsessed with Taxi Driver, then why can't anyone buy that Lee Harvey Oswald was a nut who acted alone?

(thanks Mary Roberts and Matt Douglas 1) I made the Little League All-Star team one year as a pitcher. 2) I pitched and lost the championship game that year :( 3) I was ( and am for life )in the fraternity Sigma Alpha Mu at Indiana University 4) I remember cursing John Hinckley in 1981 not only for shooting President Reagan but more importantly for possibly causing the NCAA Championship game that night to almost not be televised (Indiana defeated UNC with Isiah Thomas leading the way with Randy Wittman, Ray Tolbert, Landon Turner and Ted Kitchell as the other starters) I am a hard core Hoosier fanatic !! 5) I still amaze myself that I can remember the above starting 5 :) 6) The first time I was ever in a hospital was for a double hernia surgery in my mid 40's. 7) I never have felt any physical pain as bad as the first time I had Kidney Stones (and yes, I have had them twice) 8) I had a basil cell carcinom ...
Lisamarie gave me the number 9 -- things about me that you might not know: 1. My wife, Marie, and I met on a blind date engineered by my brother and sister-in-law on New Year's Eve 1988. 2. I met, shook hands and spoke for about two minutes with Princess Grace of Monaco at a retrospective honoring her in Philadelphia about six months before her untimely death in a car accident in Monaco. 3. I have interviewed every president of the United States from John F. Kennedy to Bill Clinton (Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush). 4. I was invited to a White House news conference with President Reagan in 1981, shortly after his return to work after being shot by John Hinckley. I asked him a question, and we shook hands after the news conference. Thirty years later, I learned that photos of those two events -- asking the question and our handshake -- were photographed by the official White House photographer. I was able to get the photos printed from the Reagan ...
In August 1984, President Reagan spoke at the national prayer breakfast in Dallas and stated: “We poison our society when we remove its theological underpinnings. We court corruption when we leave it bereft of belief. All are free to believe or not believe; all are free to practice faith or not. But those who believe must be free to speak of and act on their belief, to apply moral teaching to public questions. I submit to you that the tolerant society is open to and encouraging of all religions. And this does not weaken us; it strengthens us…without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” When Abraham prayed on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah, God told him that He wo ...
Just watched President Reagans speech in Berlin, Call Mikhail Gorbachev to take the Berlin Wall down (National Geographic Channel). VERY MOVING and WOW.BALLSY!!! The White House and the State Dept. had nixed that line from the speech, and President Reagan kept it in under protest!!!
From Wikipedia: U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. The United States Congress passed a concurrent resolution seven years later on June 4, 1926, requesting that President Calvin Coolidge issue another proclamation to observe November 11 with appropriate ceremonies.[2] A Congressional Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U.S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday: "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'." In 1945, World War II veteran Raymond Weeks from Birmingham, Alabama, had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who died in World War I. Weeks led a delegation to Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, who supported the idea of National Veterans Day. Weeks led the first national celebration in 1947 in Alabama and annually until his death in 1985. President Reagan honored Weeks at the White House with the Presidential Citizensh ...

Palin Pushes the GOP Deeper Into the Abyss: ‘Middle of the Road’ Candidates Will ‘Get Hit’ (Video) Posted by: Howard Crane in Videos November 11, 2013 AS YOU ALL CAN SEE ,Sarah Palin AND MANY REPUBLICANS DOESN'T HAVE FAITH IN Chris Christie OF BEING THE REPUBLICAN FLAG BEARER,IN ON COMING ELECTION 2016. For some reason Sarah Palin is still relevant in the news. While on tour to promote her new book ‘Good Tidings, Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas’ in hopes to capitalize on “true American Christmas values,” she stopped by the Today Show for an interview with host Matt Lauer on issues such as Obamacare, her unhealthy obsession with former President Reagan, her lack of faith in the current GOP, and what Republicans need to do to win votes. Within 5 minutes, Palin confirmed that she is still loony tunes by defending the actions of tea party members of Congress, predicting that a moderate GOP presidential nominee such as Chris Christie would not succeed in the 2016 election. When as ...

... chilling stuff at the movie screen - last night at the theatre all up to about midnight-ish, because Charlton Heston is one of my very favorite actors of all times, I stayed to watch Orson Wells's "Touch of Evil", where he plays a Mexican lawyer married to American women, played by Janet Leigh and finds himself involved in crime episode during his vacation, so his wife is put to danger... it's good movie noir, but wow ... it's pretty sick ... My colleagues may like to hear this, if you did not know already, Charlton Heston had Alzheimer's Disease, which is kind of funny because he went from being supporter of Liberal Democrats to Conservative Republican and was then good friend with President Reagan who also had Alzheimer's disease. Anyhow, he was married for 64 years to the same wife - speaking of commitment ... Good thing I had new bag of candies with me ... even M&M's turned orange like pumpkins ... See the movie folks if you like crime noir ... it's filled with bad characters and scenes ... wow. S ...
I don't care what anybody says, I know for a fact that Ronald Reagan was the BEST president our country has had in the last hundred years. I pray God would send us another man is good as President Reagan was!
Today's history: In 1824, the popular presidential vote was first recorded. In 1889, North Dakota became the 39th state while South Dakota became the 40th. In 1898, Cheerleading was started at the University of Minnesota with Johnny Campbell leading the crowd in cheering on the football team. In 1904, the British newspaper, "Daily Mirror," was published. In 1936, the first high-definition TV broadcast service made its debut, by BBC in London. In 1948, President Harry Truman was re-elected. In 1959, contestant Charles Van Doren confessed that TV quiz show "21" was fixed. In 1974, 78 people died when the Time Go-Go Club in Seoul, South Korea burned down. Six of the victims jumped to their deaths from the seventh floor after a club official barred the doors after the fire started. In 1980, TV character Edith Bunker died on "All of the Family". Three years later in 1983, President Reagan signed the bill establishing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Finally, in 1997, Typhoon Linda killed at least 208 people ...
National Geographic has an interesting article in its Nov. Issue, Mapping a New America by Robert D. Ballard. Under the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, it granted countries the right to claim sovereign rights over a larger region if they can prove that the continental shelf (the submerged portion of a continent) extends beyond their exclusive economic zone, EEZ and meets certain other conditions. Since the United States had not joined the Convention, in 1983, President Reagan expanded the Country’s sovereign rights 200 nautical miles from its shores for the purpose of exploring, exploiting, conserving and managing natural resources. Being the United States potentially has one of the largest continental shelves in the world; the US can go beyond 200 miles where the shelf extends beyond 200 miles which roughly doubles the area within United States boundaries, Alaska and Hawaii. These boundaries applies to the U.S. and all of its territories, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Wake Island, Johnston ...

I woke up this a.m. thinking about President Reagan and the fall of the Iron Curtain. I had to laugh thinking that if it still was in place and obummer trying to negotiate with Putin to "tear down that wall". Putin would have waved him of like a pesky little fly or told him to go play in a sandbox. Obummer accomplishes NOTHING.
John Hinckley Jr. was in court yesterday trying to get his conviction of shooting President Reagan overturned because his Lawyers refused to incert pertinent evidence into his trial according to Hinckley's new Lawyers. What evidence? Evidence that proves his family were close friends with the George Bush Family, Vice-president George Bush. The fact that the Hinckley and Bush Families were long time close friends and business partners NEVER made the six-o-clock news, means there was a Cover-up, WHY??? It's hard for me to believe that our National News Agencies that were privately owned back then, couldn't have found the connection between the Bush and Hinckley Families. It's also hard for me to believe that this news would have been withheld from the U. S. Public without political pressure from Vice-president George Bush who was once the Director of the CIA. HOW COULD THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE HINCKLEY AND BUSH FAMILIES BE WITHHELD FROM THE CITIZENS OF THE United States? Especially when a sitting Presid . ...

I laughed so hard when I heard President Reagan state, "TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!"
Sarah Palin: The conservative grassroots is rising up just like some did all those years ago at the GOP convention in Alaska. We’re rising up and calling on the rest of the Party to stand up with us against corruption and indifference – the twin causes of failure. Stand up, America! A great awakening is needed now more than ever. And it can happen in this most exceptional nation. By the grace of God it will happen! President Reagan warned about socialized medicine, and ironically I quoted his warning in my closing remarks during the 2008 Vice Presidential debate: “If you don’t do this and if I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.” You deserve the best, America. And the best is God-given freedom.

Reagan Goes to Roswell A couple months later, probably still inspired by the E.T. movie, President Reagan showed up in Roswell, New Mexico to give a speech for the re-election of Harrison (Jack) Schmitt. Schmitt was a Republican Senator from New Mexico who as an Apollo 17 astronaut was the last man to walk on the moon. Schmitt, like Reagan was interested in the UFO phenomena. Like Reagan, Schmitt had publicly played both the investigator and the agnostic. On a positive note Schmitt declared, "If the government has any information on UFO's, it should be released to the public -- barring anything that might affect national security. We ought to be involved in a search to find out if there's any good evidence that UFOs really are spacecraft that are being piloted by extraterrestrial beings." Playing the conservative politician Schmitt stated, "The existence of intelligent life elsewhere in our universe is highly probable, given the huge number of sun-like stars that exist out there. That such life would visi ...
WE HAVE HEARD a great deal in recent days about how Ronald Reagan brought a spirit of optimism to Washington after his election in 1980 and thereby renewed the nation's belief in itself after a period of self-doubt, pessimism, and 'malaise.' President Reagan said America's best days were still ahead...
International Criminal Police Organization. It was established in 1923 and operates in about 188 countries. By executive order 12425, issued in 1983, President Reagan recognized Interpol as an international organization and gave it some of the privileges and immunities customarily extended to foreign diplomats. Interpol, however, is also an active law-enforcement agency, so critical privileges and immunities (set forth in Section 2(c) of the International Organizations Immunities Act) were withheld. Specifically, Interpol’s property and assets remained subject to search and seizure, and its archived records remained subject to public scrutiny under provisions like the Freedom of Information Act. Being constrained by the Fourth Amendment, FOIA, and other limitations of the Constitution and federal law that protect the liberty and privacy of Americans is what prevents law-enforcement and its controlling government authority from becoming tyrannical. On Wednesday, however, for no apparent reason, President ...
Beyond those monuments to heroism is the Potomac River, and on the far shore the sloping hills of Arlington National Cemetery with its row on row of simple white markers bearing crosses or Stars of David. They add up to only a tiny fraction of the price that has been paid for our freedom. Each one of those markers is a monument to the kinds of hero I spoke of earlier. Their lives ended in places called Belleau Wood, The Argonne, Omaha Beach, Salerno and halfway around the world on Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Pork Chop Hill, the Chosin Reservoir, and in a hundred rice paddies and jungles of a place called Vietnam. - President Reagan
THE DAILY RANT Hard Hitting Conservative Commentary w/Mychal Massie Conservatives Must Not Trust Republican Leadership by Mychal Massie on October 8, 2013 in Daily Rant, Politics "Those of us who consider themselves conservatives need to understand that conservatism to the Republican hierarchy is defined differently than we define it. And those who consider themselves Republicans because they still believe the Party represents what it did at its inception or what it did under President Reagan must understand that’s no longer the case. The Republican Party is led by craven, self-aggrandizing, ego-centric, Erebusic miscreants who lust after power and privilege. The so-called leadership has no more interest in doing what is best for We the People than Obama does. Harsh words? Yes, they are. But I defy one of these people to stand up and say that I am wrong. The Republican hierarchy is big on theater and dramatic sound bites, but at the end of the day theater and a good sound bite are not leadership. As I w ...

John Hinckley shot President Reagan in 1981 and is still alive. Miriam Carey was driving erratically with no weapon and was shot 12 times.
President Reagan once said about President Calvin Coolidge: "I don’t know if this country has ever had a higher level of prosperity as it did under Coolidge. And he actually reduced the national debt, he cut taxes several times across the board. And maybe the criticism was in both cases that they weren’t activist enough. Well, maybe there’s a lesson in that. Maybe we’ve had instances of government being too active, intervening, interfering. You have here a couple of cases of men who were abiding by the rule that if it ain’t broke,don’t fix it."
President Reagan had the common sense of Ron Paul, the management experience of Mitt Romney, and the communication gift of Newt Gingrich.
“Getting shot hurts.” Ronald Reagan wrote in his diary on April 11, 1981, two weeks after a bullet from the gun of would-be assassin, John Hinckley, Jr. pierced his left lung missing his heart by less than one inch. 69 days into his first term as President, this near-death incident allowed President Reagan to display one of the greatest examples of God-like forgiveness I have ever stumbled upon.   Immediately following the shooting, the headlines wrote of his sense of humor in the midst of a tragedy. For example, while waiting for surgery, Reagan joked to the doctors, “I hope you are all Republicans.” And to his wife, Nancy he said, “Honey, I forgot to duck.” Both of these quotes were funny and obviously needed to be reported. But for me, the greatest story that came from the shooting never made the national news. It took place when President Reagan was all by himself.   Struggling to breathe, while lying on his back in the George Washington University Hospital, the former President stared ...
Someone raised a very valid point: John Hinckley, Jr. *shot* President Reagan... and he wasn't gunned down. He was apprehended, tried, and eventually confined to a mental institution. This woman hit a barricade and ran from police and was summarily executed. Things have changed, folks. And not for the better.
Why was President Bill Clinton and effective leader? He and Newt Gingrich, the leader of the House had large philosophical differences, yet they were able to get things done. Bill Clinton understood that a good negotiator had to find a win-win solution. President Reagan and House Speaker, Tip O'Neill fought very tough battles, but understood how to negotiate. President Obama offers win-lose negotiations and, if that fails, lose-lose negotiations and the whole country loses. What President Obama faces is nothing new. The divisive style he uses does not help. He needs to build trust and understanding.
Lynette Squeeky Fromme shot at President Ford. John Hinckley shot and seriously wounded President Reagan. Both got prison terms.
It just seems there could have been a better outcome to this situation...When John Hinckley SHOT President Reagan, and James Brady in 1981, his life was spared. They have even considered letting him out of the mental hospital! This woman just rammed a gate with her car. Now she is dead. Edited to add: I know that I was not there, so I do not know exactly what went on. Just making a comparison to 1981 and 2013, basically.

No less a great American wordsmith departs today. My friend in Tom Clany, who gave rise to President Reagan's notion of a shinning city opon a hill. He brought into being great Americans for the ages, Jack Ryan, John Clark, and Domingo Chavez. You brought comfort and hope and a damned good yarn when needed. FAIR WINDS MI AMIGO.
Remember John Hinckley? The man who tried to kill President Reagan? He didn't do that because he disliked the President. He did it because he was mentally ill and he thought it would make him a hero in the eyes of Jody Foster. So - before you post something in a public setting - stop and think - what if something unthinkable is done because someone thinks it will make them look like a hero to you? If you imply the unthinkable is heroic, you ARE part of the problem.

Remarks by Prime Minister of Japan, Hon. Mr. Shinzo Abe Accepting Hudson Institute's 2013 Herman Kahn Award, Wednesday, September 25, 2013, The Pierre Hotel, New York City Thank you, Scooter. Ken, my friends, Chairman Stern, I am flattered. Thank you so much. President Reagan received this award. So did Vice President Cheney, Secretaries Kissinger and Shultz, and the list goes on, and on. And today, you have made me its first non-American awardee. I cannot thank you more. Herman Kahn predicted Japan's rise early in the 1960s. If he were still alive, and saw Japan today, what would he say? Would he say that the Japanese have again become like sunflowers, always looking toward the sun? I do hope so. Because by reinvigorating the Japanese economy, I am also hoping to bring back a sense of optimism for the future to the people of Japan. This is why we all rejoiced so much at the decision that the Olympics in 2020 should come to Tokyo. Ladies and gentlemen, a prolonged slump has downsized the Japanese economy. ...
THE TRUTH - FINALLY - ABOUT THE REAGAN ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT: In 1980, John Hinckley Sr. was a Texas oilman who strove mightily to get fellow Texas oilman George H.W. Bush the Republican nomination for president. The Bushes and the Hinckleys were frequent dinner companions. The failed attempt by John Hinckley Jr. to assassinate President Reagan was an abortive attempt by the BUSH-KERRY Skull & Bones clan to gain control of the White House ahead of time. A dinner date was scheduled for the following day after the attempted Reagan assassination between Neil Bush (Son of George HW Bush Snr.) and Scott Hinckley (Brother of John Hinckley Jr.). Oh yes, the brother of the assassin and the son of the vice-president (and their wives) had a dinner date for the day after the shooting. No doubt a celebration. But it really wasn’t such “a bizarre coincidence.” Those two families were very close; but the press never focused on that critical fact as it should have. If Reagan had died, the oilmen’s interests woul ...
NRA’s Wayne LaPierre: ‘There Weren’t Enough Good Guys With Guns’ At Navy Yard Shooting = The NRA is selling this line to the America public.Same solution from the NRA as always: More guns -Well time to blow up the right wing gun nuts talking points with one of their own.The Grand Puba Mythical Unicorn of all things Conservative and Republican."St. Ronnie". Mmmm right here in this picture that was only seconds before President Reagan was shot there were not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, but 6 "Good Guys with guns" as the NRA calls it (actually not pictured are more police and Secret Service so the number is more likely 10-15 "Good Guys with guns"). So there are three things to take away from this: 1. Mental illness is not a joke = John Hinckley Jr. 2. There needs to be detailed linked databases for background checks, gun purchases and mental illness history. 3. That BS that the NRA is trying to sell is a crock (I am sure if I dig more I can find other similar examples). For example there were "Goo ...

The fact is al-Qaeda militants are actively wiping out moderate rebel factions fighting the Assad regime, now clearly with Israeli backing. That means another “arc” exists: Tel Aviv, al-Qaeda and the globalist cabal of neocons, Zionists and financial criminals. Assisting them every step of the way is the controlled corporate media and the governments they have bought and blackmailed. Wikipedia claims al-Qaeda was founded by Osama bin Laden while in Peshawar, Pakistan during the late 1980s. This is an outrageous fiction. Al-Qaeda was established under the authority of President Reagan on March 27, 1985, with National Security Directive 166. This established a broad cover organization that could engage in arms and financial transactions otherwise prohibited by US law. It was never intended as a vehicle for false-flag terrorism. That would come later. It was a cover operation meant to allow clandestine operations that required a high degree of deniability. Al-Qaeda is an organization totally under the co ...

Since Carter and Turner had hit an iceberg in Iran, Casey read everything he could find in the agency on the subject. Like many he was still wondering, What had the CIA been doing? Could American intelligence have failed as badly as DIA chief Tighe said? How had the CIA missed the precariousness of the Shah's position, his physical condition, his utter weakness? One of Casey's jobs was to make sure it never happened again-in Iran or anywhere else. The CIA had probed the failed hostage rescue mission in the spring of 1980, when malfunctioning helicopters forced cancellation; the pictures of the wreckage in the Iranian desert had become a symbol of Carter's impotence. The mission supposedly had been DDO John McMahon's finest hour, because he had infiltrated some half-dozen agents inside Iran t assist. Casey thought that was way too low. Six months after the hostages were taken, the CIA should have had any more agents inside. Casey forwarded to President Reagan a top-secret after-action report on the ...
In the 1980's President Reagan figured out that we could defeat the Soviet Union by using a resource we had far more of. Money. In today's world, aside from the insane fiscal problems that are killing our economy, the greatest risk to the nation is from radical Islam funded by energy dollars. Thankfully, we have a similar opportunity to solve this problem. Energy. I submit that we can positively effect these foreign threats, plus better control Russia, and have a significant positive effect on our economy by mobilizing our energy resources to destroy the influence of the middle east and Russia. Fight this war to win with a WWII mentality where we ramp up the production of oil, gas, natural gas, nuclear energy, and green energy with the purpose of gaining relative control of the energy marketplace. Let the Arabs sort out their lack of industry as we change the nature of our relationship with the world. America is still strong enough to remain the world's superpower but we must be bold and we must act ...

The Flickering Light of America James Robison Whatever happened to the “shining city on a hill,” as President Reagan and other leaders once used to describe America? The description, of course, originated with Jesus Christ. Yet our nation, once a shining flame of freedom, is well on its way to becoming a flickering ember of debt, despair, dissension, and defeat. It does not have to continue. Who bears the greatest responsibility for this predicament? I believe Christians do—those believers who are called to be light and reveal “The Light” of the world in order to inspire the ongoing presence of a true shining city that cannot be hidden. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus made it clear that we as believers are both salt and light. Salt helps preserve that which is precious and important while enhancing the flavor. Likewise, the Christian witness should have a positive effect on every aspect of life and culture. Jesus said that if salt loses its effect, it is good for nothing but to be trampled und ...

Nutrasweet (brand name for Aspartame) was not approved until 1981, in dry foods. For over eight years the FDA refused to approve it because of the seizures and brain tumors this drug produced in lab animals. The FDA continued to refuse to approve it until President Reagan took office (a friend of Searle) and fired the FDA Commissioner who wouldn't approve it. Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes was appointed as commissioner. Even then there was so much opposition to approval that a Board of Inquiry was set up. The Board said: " .. ...

Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy. “On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) “The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov.” Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in ...

THE ENDGAME!

It seeks to improve public understanding of such problems, to support proposals for handling them jointly, and to nurture habits and practices of working together among these regions.”2 Further, Trialogue and other official writings made clear their stated goal of creating a “New International Economic Order.” President George H.W.

Reaganomics has destroyed America! President Reagan had an idea about how the world should run. He deregulated Big Business. That is, he removed the restrictions put in place that kept companies from cheating. He removed, primarily economic oversight. He said that it was unAmerican that in this capitalist society that such oversight, such restrictions should exist. To him, these concepts flew in the face of that illusive, figmentary idea we like to call freedom. He wanted Big Business to have the freedom to do what it will and believed that in doing so, said companies would check themselves. They would check themselves because it was in their best economic interest to do so. Yet, what he didn't realize is that what was in the best interest of Corporate America could be unknown to Corporate America itself! That Big Business could be akin to a compulsive gambler who as they fall further and further into the hole panic and begin making riskier and riskier bets, thus then subject themselves to even more debt ...
Freedom Isn't Free is a powerful message given by President Reagan during his first Inaugural Address on January 20, 1981. Featuring "A Soldier's Pledge".
Not only was a nation born on the 4th of July, but so was a POTUS: Calvin Coolidge, the 30th and one of President Reagan's favorite (it's important because REAGAN liked him...and the 32nd POTUS, FDR), was born on this day in 1872. He is known as "Silent Cal" and a female dinner guest wanted to prove to a friend that she could engage the president in a conversation with more than 3 words and his response, without looking at her, was simply, "You lose." Coolidge would be the second vice president-turned-president that would win reelection to the office, as TR did 20 years prior. He would choose not to run for another 4 year-term in 1928, since there was no 22nd Amendment limiting a president to the number of terms he (or she...but not really back then) could run for. Coolidge would die in January of 1933, just as President Herbert Hoover was about to leave office. From Coolidge's death until FDR's inauguration on March 4th (the last March 4th inaugural), Hoover is the only living president of the United Sta ...

1967 Manuel Antonio Noriega goes on the CIA payroll. First recruited by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency in 1959, Noriega becomes an invaluable asset for the CIA when he takes charge of Panama's intelligence service after the 1968 military coup, providing services for U.S. covert operations and facilitating the use of Panama as the center of U.S. intelligence gathering in Latin America. In 1976, CIA Director George Bush pays Noriega $110,000 for his services, even though as early as 1971 U.S. officials agents had evidence that he was deeply involved in drug trafficking. Although the Carter administration suspends payments to Noriega, he returns to the U.S. payroll when President Reagan takes office in 1981. The general is rewarded handsomely for his services in support of Contras forces in Nicaragua during the 1980s, collecting $200,000 from the CIA in 1986 alone.
There’s Not Much That’s Funnier Than a Republican Confronted With Facts (derpI’m sure I’m not the only one who, when debating a Republican, walks away thinking, “I wonder what reality is like on their planet?” Because some of the comments I hear coming from these people would be hilarious if they didn’t actually believe them. *** sometimes I even feel sorry for them. For instance their hero is President Reagan, someone they call a “true conservative.” Except, they can’t tell you exactly how he was a conservative. He quadrupled our national debt, something Republicans don’t deny. Yet they still consider him the epitome of “Republican conservatism.” Then again, both George H. Bush and George W. Bush grew our national debt, so if Reagan is the example of “Republican conservatism,” they followed that example perfectly. Most sane people know that being “fiscally conservative” doesn’t mean running up giant deficits, so calling Reagan a “conservative legend” doesn ...
"If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth." -President Reagan
Thank You, YouTube, for reminding me how old I am. A brief play of The Seekers' "I'll Never Find Another You" (1968-or9--ish) led me to ABC News's (specifically, Monday Night Football's) coverage of the assassination of John Lennon in 1980, as well as Governor - and then-President-elect - Ronald Reagan's reaction to the news. I was six. I'm not six anymore, alas. Still, it's funny to think (and this is true for people of any age) that the people we regarded as the powers-that-be (politically, culturally, or any-which-way you like) are now historical figures, consigned to "the dustbin of history" or relegated to the status of "elder statesmen". I remember President Carter, if only vaguely, as an earnest, be-sweatered middle-aged man, and can scarcely reconcile him with the senior citizen who occasionally crops up in the news, seeking to ameliorate some situation in a 3rd-world country. President Reagan, of course, made an indelible mark on the nation's memory, followed by the first President Bush (the go . ...

KNOW AND UNDERSTAND If you’re married, you know a lot about your spouse. The question is: do you really understand them? I’ve been fortunate to meet a lot of interesting people. One person I wish I could have known is the late Ronald Reagan. Oddly enough, because I’ve learned so much about him, there have been times when I felt as if I did know him. But what I’ve realized is that, although I know a lot of facts about President Reagan, I’ll never truly know him on a deep level as a person. If I’m not careful, the same principle could apply to my relationship with my wife, Jean. A fact I know about her, for example, is that her brother passed away years ago. But do I understand at a deep level the impact his death has had in her life? Do I understand how it affects her even today? If a moment reminds her of him and tears come, am I compassionate with her even though it’s been such a long time? You see, many couples experience conflict because they treat the events of their spouse’s life as f ...
"Dr. Paul Craig Roberts joins us to discuss his recent article "Washington Is Insane", in which he dismisses as pure propaganda the claim by the U.S. that Syria's President Assad ordered the use of chemical weapons, thus crossing the "red line" declared by Obama.

LEGACY REVIEWED Twenty-five years ago, under the disapproving gaze of Vladimir Lenin, whose giant stone bust loomed behind him, President Reagan addressed the students at Moscow State University. Referencing the garish backdrop depicting the Communist Revolution – complete with gold hammer-and-sickle – Reagan declared, “Standing here before a mural of your revolution, I want to talk about a very different revolution ... quietly sweeping the globe without bloodshed or conflict ... we are seeing the power of economic freedom spreading around the world.” The New York Times wasn’t impressed. “Like any actor, of course, Mr. Reagan relies on scripts, sets, and direction,” they sneered. But it was an extraordinary moment of triumph. Six years before, on June 8, 1982 , Reagan had described to the British Parliament “a plan and a hope for the long term – the march of freedom and democracy which will leave Marxism-Leninism on the ash-heap of history as it has left other tyrannies which stifle the ...

William Edwards Deming (October 14, 1900 – December 20, 1993) was an American statistician, professor, author, lecturer and consultant. He is perhaps best known for the "Plan-Do-Check-Act" cycle popularly named after him. In Japan, from 1950 onwards, he taught top management how to improve design (and thus service), product quality, testing, and sales (the last through global markets)[1] through various methods, including the application of statistical methods.   Deming made a significant contribution to Japan's later reputation for innovative high-quality products and its economic power. He is regarded as having had more impact upon Japanese manufacturing and business than any other individual not of Japanese heritage. Despite being considered something of a hero in Japan, he was only just beginning to win widespread recognition in the U.S. at the time of his death.[2] President Reagan awarded the National Medal of Technology to Deming in 1987. He received in 1988 the Distinguished Career in Science a ...
“MY PLEDGE” by Ken Gardner In 1917 a young man named Martin Treptow enlisted in the army. He was a barber working in a small town in Iowa, but America was at war, and he knew his country needed him. So he enlisted and served in the famous “Rainbow Division” fighting in France. During one of the most important and fiercest battles of the war, Chateau Thierry, Treptow was called on to carry a message to another battalion. He raced across the battlefield and almost reached his goal when a German machine gun dropped him. On his body was found his diary, and there he had written what he called “My Pledge” “America must win this war. Therefore, I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.” In his inaugural address in January, 1981, President Reagan read Treptow’s pledge and then said: “The crisis we are facing today does not require of us the kind of sacrifice that Martin Trept ...

To: Friends & Supporters From: Gary L. Bauer Rubio's Reform Ruse Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), whom I admire and have high hopes for, is now seriously damaging himself among grassroots conservatives. Most conservatives will not consider any legislation that doesn't secure the border before giving illegal immigrants a "pathway to citizenship" or amnesty, depending on your point of view. As most of you know, I worked for Ronald Reagan for eight years. President Reagan pushed through a citizenship bill after being promised by Congress and leading Republican senators at the time that the legislation would guarantee border security. But it was a charade. The border was not secured, and today, as a result, we are once again debating another amnesty bill. Only instead of 3 million illegal immigrants, we are now talking about 10 to 15 million. By the way, after that law was signed by Ronald Reagan in 1986, Republicans did worse among Hispanics than before he agreed to the bill. In 1984, Reagan got 37% of the Hispan ...
Obama is on vacation with his family in Germany. (I guess he needs some rest for his upcoming 100 million dollar vacation to Africa) He gave a speech at the Berlin Wall. The German's can keep King O'Bummer if they'd like the wall re built. Our country is learning that speaking words (that rarely match action) is not leading. I felt physically sick hearing him talk about FREEDOM. This administration has held our country hostage through economic terrorism, IRS attacks, a sequester, the eroding our constitutional rights, the government take over our lives including healthcare and the spying on United State's citizens. People are being bullied and harassed if they speak out about the many scandals (including Benghazi) and witnesses are afraid to come forward. The wall of freedom in America is being eroded and Obama is speaking about being a Republic in front of the Berlin Wall? President Reagan, through the promise of freedom, help take down that wall while this president is destroying our own ...
Good Morning! It's a day when everything seems hard, when it should be easy. So, I'll dive right into the news. President Obama speaks at the Brandenburg Gate in Germany this morning. You know, the "wall" where President Reagan delivered, perhaps, his most famous remarks, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" Mr. Obama delivered a speech in Germany in 2008 and attracted 200,000 people. This time the President won't draw a huge crowd, in part, because Germans are upset at the NSA for collecting phone numbers. They also don't like the American drone program or the fact Gitmo is still open for business. Also in the news: Four Americans were killed during a rocket attack at Bagram Air Base, outside of Kabul. This comes as the US sits down with the Taliban for peace talks and Afghanistan ends talks with Americans. What a great country! Not. Okay, I feel really sorry for Paris Jackson. As in Michael Jackson's daughter. Her videotaped testimony was shown in court...and it illustrates she's a troubled kid who mis ...
