This youngest Hinckley son is now being permitted unsupervised visits within the Washington, DC metropolitan area--away from his mental facility, after nearly killing President Reagan in 1981. But a much more interesting subject is, who is John Hinckley, Sr.? In 1980, Hinckley Sr. was a Texas oilman who, the records show, strove mightily to get fellow Texas oilman George H.W.

"It is striking that some of the most revered and oft-quoted figures in our Western political tradition have been capable of the most vicious acts of savagery – and yet all we ever hear about is how much the Middle East has to learn from us. Winston Churchill wanted to gas more women and children than ISIS; President Obama’s various planes and drones have dropped bombs on as many schoolchildren as ISIS; President Reagan and his aides’ Central American policies disembowelled more children than ISIS; former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, in an infamous interview, said the deaths of half a million Iraqi children were a necessary price to pay for “stability in the Middle East”; Henry Kissinger and Margaret Thatcher happily assisted in the torture and disappearance of thousands of Chilean students and labour activists. The list is endless. We know that ISIS is evil, but why are we so good? We know that the slow beheading of human beings on video-clips is grotesque—why is the gradual electro ...
A showdown over Social Security is almost inevitable after Republicans used their first day in Congress to prohibit a routine accounting move that would have protected disability insurance beneficiaries from imminent cuts -- something President Reagan oversaw four times.

Mario Cuomo's 1984 Democratic Convention Speech: "A Tale Of Two Cities" New York Governor Mario Cuomo died Thursday, the same day his son Andrew Cuomo was sworn in for his second term in the same office. His stirring defense of liberalism from the 1984 Democratic National Convention has passed into legend. MARIO CUOMO: Ten days ago, President Reagan admitted that although some people in this country seemed to be doing well nowadays, others were unhappy, even worried, about themselves, their families, and their futures. The President said that he didn't understand that fear. He said, "Why, this country is a shining city on a hill." And the President is right. In many ways we are a shining city on a hill. But the hard truth is that not everyone is sharing in this city's splendor and glory. A shining city is perhaps all the President sees from the portico of the White House and the veranda of his ranch, where everyone seems to be doing well. But there's another city; there's another part to the shining the c ...
Operation Trojan by, Col. Victor Ostrovsky and Claire Hoy By Way of Deception, by Victor Ostrovsky & Claire Hoy The Other Side of Deception, by Victor Ostrovsky Revealing the facts as I know them from my vantage point of four years spent inside the Mossad was by no means an easy task. Coming from an ardent Zionist background, I had been taught that the state of Israel was incapable of misconduct. That we were the David in the unending struggle against the ever-growing Goliath. That there was no one out there to protect us but ourselves - a feeling reinforced by the Holocaust survivors who lived among us. We, the new generation of Israelites, the resurrected nation on its own land after more than two thousand years of exile, were entrusted with the fate of the nation as a whole. The commanders of our army were called champions, not generals. Our leaders were captains at the helm of a great ship. I was elated when I was chosen and granted the privilege to join what I considered to be the elite team of the M ...

Say what you like but President Reagan was probably the last president who really had his finger on the pulse.
Anger is usually buried in fear. Our media is adept at raising the fear factor to keep us/US so occupied we don't notice what the 'powers that be' are actually doing. They have been doing it since President Reagan ushered in this greedy era.

On this day in 1981, President Reagan addressed the nation and encouraged us to stand in solidarity with the brave people of Poland fighting for their freedom from a Communist regime.

USCG HISTORY: On this day, December 7, 1988 - The Coast Guard hosted an international summit between Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan, and President-elect and then-Vice President George H. W. Bush on Governors Island on 7 December 1988. The summit occurred after Gorbachev had addressed the United Nations. In planning his trip to the UN, Gorbachev requested a meeting with Reagan and the White House selected the Coast Guard base at Governors Island as a meeting site since it was a secure military installation in the middle of New York harbor and just minutes away from the United Nations. The leaders met for lunch at the LANTAREA commander's [VADM James Irwin] home. The summit was characterized as "just a luncheon" and the meeting was the last time President Reagan and Gorbachev would meet during Reagan's remaining term. - Tourist's View of N.Y. on Soviet Chief's Agenda November 30, 1988|JOHN J.

Dear Friend, On July 12, 1985, Ronald Reagan’s presidency came to a screeching halt. The public didn’t know it. The press didn’t report it. But he was prepared to resign his office to Vice President George Bush Sr. The reason why? He was diagnosed with three deadly forms of cancer. Few knew this. And even fewer know what happened next... But the events that followed changed the course of America forever. What’s more, the secret treatment that saved President Reagan could save the lives of 580,000 Americans who die every year from cancer. And if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ANY form of cancer, President Reagan’s story could change your life forever. Hello, I’m Al Sears, MD. I’ve devoted my life’s work to seeking out and bringing you remedies for some of the most challenging diseases of our time. Remedies and cures you won’t hear about from the medical establishment... or anybody else. Yet in all of my time I’ve never seen anything quite like the secret cancer cure I’m sh ...

In 1987, Dr. Hans Neiper, an ozone using doctor in Hanover, FRG, in an interview by NHF videographer Jeff Harsh, talked about his colon cancer work. Although he says he can't divulge the name of his patients; "President Reagan is a very nice man." And, "You wouldn't believe how many FDA officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hanover. You wouldn't believe this, or directors of the American Medical Association (AMA), or American Cancer Association, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes. That's the fact." Odd that it's good enough for, and sought after by the bigshots with enough money, but not allowed for the common people. In other words, these same people from the FDA, Cancer Institutes, etc. outlaw any other cancer cures that don't use cut/burn/poison to treat cancer, but when it comes to themselves and their families, they have no problem using these same alternative treatments.
Whilst you may admire President Reagan, the person who was Brave enough to end the Cold War was Mikhail Gorbachev.
As a veteran of the Vietnam era, I am especially appreciative of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial where the names of many of my Army friends are inscribed. Although I could share pages of information about the memorial, I have tried to limit my comments to details that many may not know. Today in 1984, President Reagan dedicated all 3 units of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial--the wall (designed by 21-year-old undergrad Maya Lin of Yale University), the bronze statue of slightly larger than life-size men named "Three Servicemen" (sculpted by Frederic Hart, who also did massive sculptures at National Cathedral), and an American flag (12' x 18', which flies from a 60' pole 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). The wall is a simple, V-shaped, black-granite wall inscribed with the names of 57,939 Americans missing or killed in the conflict, arranged in order of death, not rank. The architect's Asian heritage was a sensitive issue. Maya Lin, born in the U.S., the daughter of Chinese immigrants, was not even named in ...
an adventist campaigning for US presidential elections WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Ben Carson is officially a Republican again, and he's unofficially running for president. The conservative physician switched his political affiliation back from independent to the GOP on Election Day, and made no effort to hide the reason why. "It's truly a pragmatic move because I have to run in one party or another. If you run as an independent, you only risk splitting the electorate," Carson told The Washington Times Tuesday, after making the change. "I clearly would not be welcome in the Democratic Party, and so that only leaves one party. Fortunately, the fit is pretty good." Carson, the Johns Hopkins surgeon known for his work separating conjoined twins, made waves at the 2013 National Prayer breakfast with a speech criticizing President Obama while the president sat just feet away. He grew up a Democrat, but was inspired by President Reagan to join the Republican Party. By the time the GOP Congress impeached Preside ...
25 years ago today, the Berlin Wall came down - and Germany was united in freedom as the tyranny of Communism collapsed around it. In no small part thanks to the leadership of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and the good will of then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Here's an excerpt from the iconic speech President Reagan gave at the Brandenburg gate:
“The Lebanese magazine Ash Shiraa reports that the United States has been secretly selling arms to Iran in an effort to secure the release of seven American hostages held by pro-Iranian groups in Lebanon. The revelation, confirmed by U.S. intelligence sources on November 6, came as a shock to officials outside President Ronald Reagan's inner circle and went against the stated policy of the administration. In addition to violating the U.S. arms embargo against Iran, the arms sales contradicted President Reagan's vow never to negotiate with terrorists. On November 25, controversy over the administration's secret dealings with Iran deepened dramatically when Attorney General Edwin Meese revealed that proceeds from the arms sales were diverted to fund Nicaraguan rebels—the Contras—who were fighting a guerrilla war against the elected leftist government of Nicaragua. The Contra connection caused outrage in Congress, which in 1982 had passed the Boland Amendment prohibiting the use of federal money "for t ...
PRESIDENT REAGAN SIGNED EBOLA EXECUTIVE ORDER MANDATING 21 DAY QUARANTINE See comment below by Hal in the Yahoo article and a reply to it. 56 seconds ago "These kinds of restrictions could dissuade hundreds, if not thousands, of skilled volunteers from helping stop Ebola's spread, which is in the national interest of every one of our countries," Samantha Power, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday in Brussels. Sorry, Samantha, but it is far better to think about the health and welfare of the general public, than the whining of some egomaniacal divas who just want their mug in front of a camera. Please read Executive Order 12452, signed by President Reagan in 1983 in light of Ebola, as it is specifically listed in that order. Kaci Hickox, and any other person treating these folks, whether here in the USA (think Thomas Eric Duncan, and how lucky we are those two nurses did not infect anyone else yet) or abroad, should be quarantined for a minimum of 21 days. And before any of you dis me, I c ...
The CBSers took a Caravelle jet - similar to the Lear jet - to Cairo. There were just the two pilots up front and Cronkite and Weisman in the back. The charter company had installed a wire service printer in the cabin, and Cronkite and Weisman spent the flight scanning rolled-up dispatches about the Sadat assassination and his successor, Hosni Mubarak, from around the world. But the big news was that President Reagan had dispatched three former U.S. presidents (Ford, Carter, and Nixon) to attend the memorial service, along with what seemed to be half of Reagan's State Department. As Cronkite stepped out of the plane and down the staircase onto the tarmac in Cairo, he surveyed the terrain and said, "I was here when Nasser died. There were thousands in the streets. Look at this. Nothing!" The CBS News bureau in Cairo was dingy. Bureau chief Scotti Williston, a woman in her thirties with large black-framed glasses, had prepared briefing books for Cronkite. Everything he needed, except socks. Cronkite interr ...
I am curious! If you are a Republican, what are the principles of that party that make you align with it. Please DO NOT include the 2nd amendment or abortion. Just too much controversy on the second and frankly no one is taking away your guns. I support the right to bear arms and bare arms as well. (sorry for the levity) If it is fiscal responsibility, I ask that you do a little research. The last Republican president who ever balanced the budget was Dwight Eisenhower. Between 1998 and 2000, President Bill Clinton's Treasury Department paid off more than $360 billion in debt. Since the dawn of “Trickle Down Economics” and the “fiscally conservative hero” President Reagan, Republican Presidents have left office not only increasing our national debt, but drastically increasing it. Cutting taxes does not make someone “fiscally conservative.” Especially when those tax cuts have led to drastic increases in our deficits, have mainly benefited the rich and have had zero correlation with job creat ...

OK Why do our active troops get paid so little amount when they are on duty 24 hours, 7 days per week? They are in fact getting paid much less then minimum wage when you do the math, and the government sends them out putting their lives on the line. These same government officials get paid extremely more while these same politicians enjoy their freedoms of being home, able to come and go as they wish, being with their families, etc. Our troops are not out fighting for our freedom or the security and safety of our country and We the People, rather they are fighting for idealistic and political agendas. Politicians blame the terrorists. Where we these terrorist and their money before we formed them and financed them? President Reagan called the Taliban freedom fighters and compared them to our founding fathers in 1985 during an interview in the White House while sitting with the Taliban. Funny how if you search the net for when the Taliban was founded most read it was in the 1990's around 1996. But how when ...
Eric Holder works for President Obama. Eric Holder worked for President Clinton, Republican President Reagan, and Republican President Bush. In 2007, The Best Lawyers in America Edition and in 2008 The National Law Journal named Eric Holder as one of "The Most 50 Influential Lawyers in America" and by "Legal Times" as the "Greatest Washington Lawyers of the Past 30 Years." In 1988, Holder was nominated by former President Reagan to become an associate judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. During this time he presided over hundreds of civil and criminal trials. Holder was then nominated by President Clinton to serve as the U.S. attorney for Washington, D.C. in 1993. He was the first African-American to serve in the position. During his four-year term, he created a domestic violence unit, a community prosecution project, and a program for restricting gun laws. In 1997, Holder made history yet again when President Clinton nominated him to be the deputy attorney general. Holder was quickly ...

A beautiful fall morning here this Monday.hope everyone enjoys the day as we begin another week. Grammy award-winning contemporary opera singer Jessye Mae Norman was born today in 1945 in Georgia. She started her singing career in England, where she lived and performed for many years on the London stage. Upon returning to the United States in 1982 she established herself on the US operatic arena. After much self debate with being an African American, a Democrat, and activist for social equality and environment issues, she did finally accept the invitation to sing at President Reagan's 2nd Inauguration in 1985. And in 1986 she proudly returned to England to sing for Queen Elizabeth II's sixtieth birthday celebration. (Can you imagine.the black girl from Georgia.HOW WONDERFUL..) Here's an extra clip of that performance. . Along with continued performances internationally, she opened the Jessye Norman School of the Arts, a tuition-free performing arts after-school program for economically disadvantaged s ...

About two weeks ago, my fiancée treated us to a day out at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. In addition to all the fascinating exhibits regarding President Reagan, the museum there is also presently holding an exhibition on Baseball, with plenty of original artifacts connected with the history of the sport from even the very earliest times. They even have a Honus Wagner! Among the exhibits was this original advertising poster for Piedmont Tobacco. I don't imagine it was named after our town per se, but even so I thought someone here would be pleased to see this. Please excuse the reflection in the glass over the poster. There was a lovely stained glass window nearby, and I regret to say I could not eliminate the reflection from the glass with the filters I had on hand at the time.
TEHRAN (FNA)- The “war on terror” has come home — and it’s wreaking havoc on innocent American lives. The culprit is the militarization of the police. The weapons that destroyed Afghanistan and Iraq have made their way to local law enforcement. While police forces across the country began a process of militarization — complete with Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) teams and flash-bang grenades — when President Reagan intensified the “war on drugs,” the post-9/11 “war on terror” has added fuel to the fire. Through laws and regulations like a provision in defense budgets that authorizes the Pentagon to transfer surplus military gear to police forces, local law enforcement agencies are using weapons found on the battlefields of South Asia and the Middle East. A recent New York Times article by Matt Apuzzo reported that in the Obama era, “police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night- ...

EVENT Sept 5: "Lingering Questions on President Reagan's Role in the Iran-Contra Scandal," info:
Obama breaks from precedent in asking Congress for approval to strike Syria President Obama’s surprise decision to seek congressional blessing to strike Syria is a sharp break from when he committed the U.S. to NATO’s 2011 military intervention in Libya. It reversed apparent plans for an imminent strike without Capitol Hill approval and represented a departure from the policies of several predecessors, who routinely launched military strikes without lawmakers' blessing. For example, President Clinton sent missiles into the Sudan and Afghanistan without asking Congress and more broadly took part in the campaign in Kosovo, while President Reagan hit Libya with air strikes and deployed troops to Grenada. Congress did authorize President George H.W. Bush’s war against Iraq (albeit after a major troop build-up in the region already happened) and President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq over a decade later. Bush also went into Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks under a sweeping, open-ended ...

President Garfield, President Reagan, murder, and jurisdiction - Washington Post
So apparently President Reagan's would-be assassin John Hinckley Jr. could be facing murder charges because Jim Brady's death was ruled a homicide by the coroner. Brady was shot during the attempt on Reagan's life and never fully recovered from his injuries. With all due respect to the coroner that would be the longest death scene ever recorded outside of Russian opera. More than thirty-three years long to be exact. Seriously, this can't possibly pass the legal sniff test, can it? Hinckley was already tried and convicted for the attempted murder of Jim Brady so surely there has to be some kind of double jeopardy protection involved here. You'd think. But maybe you have to be a lawyer to fully appreciate an argument this convoluted. I carry no brief for John Hinckley Jr. but taken to its logical though absurd conclusion this idea of open-ended responsibility would place anyone who's ever been involved in so much as a playground tussle as a child in lifelong danger of being prosecuted as a result. Going aft ...
Here's the statement from DC police: Death of James Brady Ruled Homicide Due to 1981 Shooting (Washington, DC)- Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch announced today that the death of former Presidential Press Secretary 73-year-old James Brady has been ruled a homicide related to the 1981 shooting. On Monday, March 30, 1981, at approximately 2:25 pm, while President Ronald Reagan was exiting the Washington Hilton Hotel, a gunman fired multiple shots. President Reagan was struck by a bullet that ricocheted off his limousine. Press Secretary Brady was also struck by a bullet. Additionally, a United States Secret Service agent and an MPD officer were also shot. The suspect, John Hinckley Jr., was immediately subdued by additional MPD officers and members of the United States Secret Service. Hinckley was charged with the attempted assassination of the President of the United States, in addition to other charges related to the shooting. On Monday, August 4, 2014, at approximate ...

Geert Wilders, chairman Party for Freedom, the Netherlands Speech at the Four Seasons, New York September 25, 2008 Dear friends, Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons. I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency.

Hinckley has already been declared mentally ill to stand trial for the attempted assassination of President Reagan !
On this day in American History, 1854 Henry David Thoreau publishes his classic, Walden. 1936 Jesse Owens wins his fourth gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. 1945 The United States drops an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, prompting Japan to surrender in World War II. 1974 Gerald Ford is sworn in as the thirty-eighth U.S. president, following Richard Nixon’s resignation. 1988 President Reagan nominates Lauro Cavazos to be secretary of education and the first Hispanic to serve in a president’s Cabinet.
Former President Reagan aid,James Brady's death ruled a homicide? It never ceases to amaze me.
James Bradley's death is ruled a homicide 32 yrs later after he was shot in the head during an assignation attempted on then President Reagan.
Is this the same Reagan that cut and ran from the Middle East when he was president?
Good morning fellow Americans. This isn't even a good comparison. Obama should NEVER be compared to President Reagan. Nancy is more manly than our crackhead-in-chief and Charlie Sheen has more morals.
Now every president since Reagan has bombed .Welcome to the club,
Sadly, a new twist some might have seen coming. Hinckley was found insane for assault with intent to kill in the US President Reagan assassination attempt. Hinckley is still in a psych. ward. But now that James Brady that was shot in the head in that attempt has died 33 years later from complications of that attack - it is now ruled a homicide. Assault and homicide are two separate crimes as you know. That means double jeopardy law does not protect Hinckley another trial I think. The attack was in D.C. which doesn't carry the death penalty, but The FBI is investigating. We haven't heard the last of this.

My condolences to the family of former White House Press Secretary James Brady, who died this week at 73. He had been confined to a wheelchair since 1981, when he suffered a severe head wound during the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan. He and his wife Sarah Brady became leading figures in the gun control movement, and they fought to pass the Brady Bill that required criminal background checks for gun purchases. News of Brady’s death reignited the debate over gun control laws in some media outlets, the ones that are always looking for any excuse to reignite the debate over gun control. But the controversy and the arguments can wait until tomorrow. There’s a reason why funerals are called “paying respects.” For now, let’s just pause to pay respect to James Brady for his public service to President Reagan and for the unimaginable pain he endured every day with great courage for so many years.

Missourians Speak Loud & Clear on EPA President Reagan once said that our “Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” 28 years later, anyone who cashes a paycheck, files their taxes, or even picks up the local newspaper knows that these words ring true just as they did in 1986. From Atchison County, where I live, to Marion County clear across the state, I speak with people who are worried about our out of control government. Taxing, spending, and regulating is at an all-time high, and there seems to be no end in sight. Our government acts like everything under the sun must be regulated, and all the bullying needs to stop. Few regulations are more damaging than the EPA’s proposed rule to give government bureaucrats in Washington control over thousands of small streams, ditches, and ponds, some of which may contain little or no water. We are talking about Missourians’ pri ...

All - I wrote a letter last week endorsing my top candidate, Meka Childs in the race for Superintendent.

Results from this week's primary showed that as usual, the voters have spoken - loud and clear. Now South Carolina voters have a very distinct choice ahead of them in the runoff on June 24th. Voters can choose to support Sally Atwater, a life-long Republican who has a Masters degree in Special Education from Winthrop University. This is someone who has over 12 years experience in the classroom as a Special Needs teacher in mostly rural counties in South Carolina. A person who lost her husband to brain cancer in 1991 and was forced to raise their three daughters all by herself.

Nancy Reagan regarding John Hinckley's release: We could all learn so much from this elegant and gracious lady. You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young man who shot President Reagan in the early 1980's. 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 having been rehabilitated. Consequently, you will appreciate the following letter from Nancy Reagan to John Hinckley. * To: John Hinckley From: 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 President Reagan. We are fully aware that mental stress and pain could have driven you to such an act of desperation. We' ...
It’s no secret of my dislike for Obama and his administration. I’m certainly not politically correct but I do try not to use these words loosely. My destain for Obama has nothing to do with skin color. It’s his arrogance, lawlessness and what he has done and continues to do to fundamentally change our nation. However, it goes deeper than policy. Obama’s disrespect for the office he holds and his distaste for United States Military is at the very least appalling. President Reagan made Americans feel good about themselves, believed in peace through strength, and had such great respect for the Oval office he wouldn’t even remove his suit jacket while inside it. Could you even begin to imagine President Reagan funding and negotiating with our nation's enemies? There is no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama’s a Muslim. He despises everything to do with Christianity and traditional American values. When Obama said “America is no longer a Christian Nation.” he was simply stating his goal to infiltra ...

Freedom Isn’t Free and the Price Was Paid on D-Day “For four long years, much of Europe had been under a terrible shadow. Free nations had fallen, Jews cried out in the camps, millions cried out for liberation. Europe was enslaved, and the world prayed for its rescue. Here in Normandy the rescue began. Here the Allies stood and fought against tyranny in a giant undertaking unparalleled in human history.” So began the famous speech President Reagan gave 30 years ago as he stood on the windswept heights of Pointe du Hoc and honored those heroic Americans who courageously captured the cliffs on D-Day. Pointing to these extraordinary members of the Greatest Generation who were by then elderly men, Reagan said, “These are the boys of Pointe du Hoc. These are the men who took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war.” Today, on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, fewer of these brave Americans are still with us. We call them the Greatest Gen ...

"Ronald Reagan: An Extraordinary Politician" (from Breitbart by Ron Robinson) "Today marks the tenth anniversary of the passing of President Ronald Reagan. As significant as this anniversary is to America and the world, there is a more important Reagan anniversary this year. I am referring to the 50th anniversary of actor Ronald Reagan’s speech, televised nationwide, on October 27, 1964, on behalf of Barry Goldwater for President. The speech eventually became known as, “A Time for Choosing.” Years later, President Reagan wrote of it, “Of course, I didn’t know it then, but that speech was one of the most important milestones in my life—another one of those unexpected turns in the road that led me onto a path I never expected to take.” What is remarkable about that speech, yet seldom noted, is there was no chance of Goldwater winning by the time Reagan delivered it. Barry Goldwater would lose the election one week later carrying only six states and gathering only 38.5% of the vote. Reagan used ...

As a conservative, I am asking for all my friends of the same persuasion to step back and think about what has happened over the past couple of days regarding the release by the Taliban of US Army Sgt. Bergdahl Close to 30 years ago, a president I deeply admire and love came under fire for trading weapons for hostages. This violated federal law(s). He did not have a sympathetic press to cover and make excuses for him. President Reagan did not turn and try to hide from his detractors. He did not try and put the blame on others. During his address to the nation to reveal the findings of two independent panels convened to determine the facts of the Iran/Contra affair (Google it.) President Reagan admitted that “it happened on [my] watch.” He personally accepted the responsibility for the actions of himself, and his administration. But at the heart of his speech, you can tell that President Reagan felt a personal responsibility to the hostages, and getting them home was imperative, regardless of the ** ...

Just watched "The Normal Heart" which premiered on HBO yesterday. Unfortunately I had to download it to watch it. SO worth it. Lets just say that I'll never look at Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons,Taylor Kitsch, and Julie Roberts the same way again. This movie was amazing. Hard at times to watch at times, but very well done. I was speechless and sobbing by the end. For those who don't know it was about the early stages of the AIDS epidemic in 1981 and the fight the *** community had to go through to get funding and attention to the crisis. WE have come so far since then. Thank God for President Reagan who finally took notice in 1985. Whether, you are *** or straight this is a must see movie. If you liked "Philadelphia" with Tom Hanks you will like this. Word of warning there is strong language and some nudity in it, but the story tromps it all.
"I don't have to tell you how fragile this precious gift freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world." - President Reagan. Freedom isn't free, and it is important to reflect on that more than once a year. I know Memorial Day distinguishes those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation. To my Uncle Leonard who fought in the trenches during WWll, you are honored and never forgotten! As I pause and reflect on today I also remember the service members still with us. To Dad, my hero; to uncles Jerry and Emery, to my niece Kim Medill, cousins Dave Kubat, Scott Sowieja, friends Allen Goehring, Mark Schneider, Gunter, Dean Blakelock, Harlan Hicken, Rick Westhoff, Jim Carey and Jay Smith...I thank you profusely for your service putting the greater good before self...and to Grayson Smith and Kyle Chapman...I am extremely proud of the commitment you are taking in following these great men and women before you!
What I have to say could be heard from many others. I won’t quote only dissidents like Noam Chomsky, for sure. What about Robert Gates (the former chief of the Pentagon), Paul Roberts (former secretary of the treasury under President Reagan), Zbigniew Brzezinski (former national security adviser, well-known for his strong anti-Russian feelings), Angela Merkel (Germany’s chancellor), Ron Paul (a U.S. presidential candidate who sought the presidency more than once)? These are just a few of the prominent politicians and experts who have come to the conclusion that the aggression in Ukraine was ignited by the U.S. and that what happened there was actually a coup. Unfortunately, there were few Bulgarian media who quoted similar opinions. There was plenty of enthusiasm among media teams when it came to the announcement — “we have news: the Maidan snipers were sent by Yanukovich!” — but no enthusiasm followed the conclusion of the independent commission summoned to investigate who were the snipers wh ...
A Message for Obama I have tried to imagine a time when the world was not a dangerous place and I have not been successful. Yes, there have been times of peace where many nations prospered and civilizations flourished, and all seemed to be well with the world; but underlying it all I think there has always lurked a sense of danger - a tension if you will between the forces of good and the forces of evil. True, we no longer live in the era of "the Cold War" in which I grew up as a child. We are no longer living in the upheaval of the turbulent '60s' in which I came of age. Yet, in a sense, I have this gnawing feeling that we are in more danger than we have ever been before. Compare our history over the past 75 years with the history we are now writing. How did we defeat the tyrannies of the 20th century? By bludgeoning them into the ground with unrelenting superior military power until they surrendered. How did we defeat "the evil empire" of the Soviet Union (as President Reagan called it)? We built ...
The following is excerpt from President Reagan's Inaugural Address, January 20, 1981. I am proud to say that my first presidential election vote was for this remarkable man. No better words can be spoken to honor those who gave everything on this Memorial Day Weekend. My deepest gratitude to all those who have. As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it—now or ever. . Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors. I am told that tens of thousands of prayer meetings are being held on this day, and for that I am deeply grateful. .. ...

Solar power and the oil system that killed it. Prodigal sun, By Arthur Allen Prodigal Sun News: Solar energy was a rising star in the '70s -- until it was banished by the powers that be. Are we ready for its return? By Arthur Allen It was the winter of 1981 and the country was just beginning to feel the sharp edges of the Reagan revolution. Denis Hayes, head of the fledgling Solar Energy Research Institute, was walking through the halls of the Department of Energy when an acquaintance came up to him and said, "Has Frank lowered the boom on you yet?" The Frank in question was an acting assistant secretary, but the boom, it turned out, was falling from the top. President Reagan had once been General Electric's most camera-ready tout, and his administration viewed alternative energy with open scorn. "They're going to kill your study," the gray-suited informant warned Hayes, before slipping down the corridor. The study, a yearlong investigation by some of the nation's leading scientists, provided a convincing ...
Joseph Patrick Addabbo Joseph Patrick Addabbo (March 17, 1925 – April 10, 1986) was a New York City politician who served as a Democrat in the United States House of Representatives from 1961 to 1986. As the chairman of the United States House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense in the 1980s, he was a noted critic of President Ronald Reagan's massive defense spending increases. Addabbo was born in Queens, New York and lived in the borough his entire life. He was a 1946 graduate of St. John's Law School and practiced law in Ozone Park, New York before his election to Congress in 1960. Addabbo was the Democratic nominee to replace Queens Rep. Albert H. Bosch, a Republican who left Congress to begin a judicial career. Defense spending critic Addabbo became chairman of the defense spending subcommittee in 1979. In the post, he frequently sparred with President Reagan and was a favorite media source for accounts of the epic military spending battles in the early 1980s. Addabbo created...
WE ARE KGB - FSB !! WE ARE EVERYWHERE !! WE ARE POWERFUL ! How Russia Defeated the United States~ Controversial for many, I am sure, but truth be told, whether anyone likes it or not, Russia has all the trump cards stacked against the United States right now. This means, in reality, they defeated us—well, at least during this iteration of the ongoing Cold War. But how? How did Russia accomplish this task is a question that must be asked.Unlike the United States, Russia, like the majority of countries, doesn’t play any game based on time. Time is on their side. And when it comes to Russian operations against the United States, they stayed on track keeping their eyes and ears close to the monitor tracking our every move. Unfortunately, during the late 80’s, when President Reagan confronted the old Soviet Union, most Westerns believed the game was over and we won. Unfortunately, we didn’t really win anything. But worse, we took our eyes off the ball. Russia played a very methodical infiltration game ...
Cardinal Seàn's remarks at today's National Catholic Prayer Breakfast It is a great joy to be with you here today at this Prayer Breakfast. They tell us breakfast is the most important meal. That could not be any truer than here, as we gather as believers to celebrate our faith and share a meal on this Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, whose constant message is prayer and conversion. I am happy to bring you the warmest greetings of Pope Francis. I told him about today’s event. I am sure that if Pope Francis were here he would urge us to renew the missionary spirit of our Church as we carry the glad tidings of the Gospel to the periphery. Sometimes the periphery can mean Harvard, Yale, Wall Street or event in this hotel where President Reagan was shot, a block from my old parish.

JMTCW: This is something I heard on the history channel when they still had history and not all this BS reality tv: when the *** were mulling over whether or not to attack Pearl Harbor, one of the pros in favor of attacking was the fact that they saw movies of our recruits drilling with Quaker guns, to them this was a sure sign that the US had no stomach for battle much like what is happening today with the downsizing and cutting of our military. We are projecting weakness and if anyone needs validation just look at Ukraine, the Middle East, China, etc. Putin would have tried this under Bush or President Reagan. For all you historians out there here's your chance to either contradict or corroborate, have at it! 😃
I would remind anyone who believes the Benghazi incident warrants heads to roll; you should, in good conscience, demand Oliver North to surrender to authorities for his participation and cover up involving then President Reagan, Iran/Contra and subversive intervention(s) in Nicaragua. " Oliver North, the Reagan administration National Security Council staffer who became a conservative hero because of his role in the Iran-Contra scandal, said last week that President Obama could be impeached for his handling of issues including the Benghazi attack because unlike in Benghazi, “nobody died in Iran-Contra.” North told Tim Constantine of the Tea Party News Network that the Reagan administration didn’t try to cover up the Iran-Contra scandal, a fact he might want to check with his own secretary from the time. He also urged House Speaker John Boehner to form a special committee on Benghazi. Right-wing activists have only increased their demands for a special committee after the House Republicans’ own rep ...
For some reason I have had former President Reagan famous saying "tear down this wall" blaring through my brain all day.
Hinkley thought, for sure, if he shot President Reagan, he'd win Jodie Foster's love. Prime time.
MAY 1, 305 AD, the most powerful man in the world, Emperor Diocletian, stepped down from ruling Rome. Two years prior he began a systematic persecution of Christians, intending to exterminate them. He forbade worship, burned books, arrested clergy, and demanded pagan sacrifices. From Europe to North Africa, hundreds were martyred. Suddenly Diocletian was struck with a painful intestinal disease and resigned. Eight years later Emperor Constantine ended the persecution of Christians. In 1984, President Reagan said: "In the fourth century, a monk thought he heard God telling him to go to Rome...He followed a crowd into the Coliseum and saw the gladiators. He realized they were going to fight to the death. He cried out, 'In the Name of Christ, stop!'...made his way through the crowd and climbed the wall into the arena...As he was pleading with the gladiators...one of them plunged his sword into his body..his last words were, 'In the Name of Christ, stop!' Suddenly the gladiators stood looking at this tiny for ...
My birthday card to Nick Jr. didn't go over well... Dear Nick Jr, I remember my 5th birthday like it was yesterday. It was a He-man themed birthday so it was very homosexual. The year was 1987 and President Reagan was at the tail end of his 2nd term. Your father, Nick Sr. was only 3 years old, and he was bright eyed and full of wonder. We didn't know it at the time, but the Gulf War was soon to begin. I was in preschool at Weginka, and my teachers Mrs. McCain and Mrs. LeBell were kind and gentle women. They may be dead now, or just really old. Well, happy birthday! Love, Uncle Carl
I have been looking back at history, where I notice President Reagan was shot yet out of the list of Freemaons' who else...remember sorry Im an Australian. George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George Bush were all Masonic Presidents of the U.S.A. When JFK was assassinated LB Johnson took over, then Andrew Johnson took over from Abraham Lincoln? I know Freemason's are normally good, however what I have found in Kings Cross a Lodge j which linked to the Grand Lodge No 2 in South Africia and the front in Sydney was just Freemason's.food for thought when we have Bush on the list.

It seems as if he's suffering from "OTSD" "Obama Traumatic Stress Disorder.' My Lord, mocking "President Reagan."
My boss had talk radio on, and it was on the Hugh Hewitt show and heard a sound bite on John Kerry or Joe Biden in regards to the situation in Russia and Ukraine and boldness of Vladimir Putin, they mentioned the "Cold War" and how it was easy then and how it is hard now in the well new Cold War. I think for one it was not easy then, but we had leadership then as we had President Reagan who dealt with the Soviets & Eastern Bloc countries like a grown up and leadership experience. That is my viewpoint but before Reagan his predecessors dealt with the Cold War in their on way the best they can. Now we have No Leadership or Executive experience a bunch of three blind mice or stooges (Obama, Biden, Kerry) who is making us look like buffoons on the world stage, yes it may not be easy in dealing with Russia, yet Putin took notes while America was fool enough to an elect empty suit Obama and America gone weak, and Putin went in for kill.
In the Name of God. 23-Apr 1985 United States Supreme Court ruled that employees of the Alamo Christian Foundation are covered by federal labor laws even if they are "volunteers" and don't want wages. 23-Apr 1986 Richard Butler, leader of the Aryan Nations, and Thom Robb, national chaplain of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, testified their churches' doctrines and beliefs were similar to those of mainstream Christians. 23-Apr 1987 Rev. Everett Sileven, invited to speak at UALR by physics instructor Ed Gran, said President Reagan signed a secret treaty for the Soviet Union to supply the textbooks for public schools in the U.S. by 1990. From "This Date in Arkansas History" by Dr. Stephen Smith
No disrespect intended Vice President Biden but I knew President Reagan and your no President Reagan! Don't go promising ANY nation "WE GOT YOUR BACK"...1. Your not French and 2. Don't be offering our blood to the world!!!
"The First Amendment was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny." President Reagan told the Alabama Legislature, MARCH 15, 1982.
US Embassy in El Salvador; the only place the US Flag was NOT lowered at sunset. Executive order of President Reagan.
The overlap between gun nuts and hate and white supremacy is clear and disquieting. In 1998 former Aryan Nations guard Buford O’Neal Furrow Jr. fired more than 70 rounds from a submachine gun at a Jewish community center in Los Angeles. In 1999, in Chicago, white supremacist Benjamin Nathaniel Smith shot and killed Northwestern University Men's Basketball Coach Ricky Byrdsong and Won-Joon Yoon wounded nine Orthodox Jews and an African-American minister. (Smith was issued a gun owner's ID card despite an order of protection filed by an ex-girlfriend.) What is the NRA's position on white supremacy? It certainly keeps Ted Nugent who called President Obama as a "subhuman mongrel," on its board. It says "President Reagan understood NRA and its cause. As a Life member he was one of us, through and through." Yet Reagan signed The Mulford Act California bill prohibiting the public carrying of loaded firearms in 1967 when it was Black Panthers not Whites who were carrying in public. Who can say hyprocite?

Great article by my friend Pat... What Would Reagan Do? By Patrick J. Buchanan Friday - April 11, 2014 President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East Germany. Maj. Nicholson had been shot in cold blood by a Russian soldier. Speakes thought the president's statement, "This violence was unjustified," was weak. I agreed. We interrupted the president, who reread the statement, then said go ahead with it. What lay behind this Reagan decision not to express his own and his nation's disgust and anger at this atrocity? Since taking office, Reagan had sought to engage Soviet leaders in negotiations, but, as he told me, "they keep dying on me." Two weeks earlier, on March 10, 1985, Konstantin Chernenko, the third Soviet premier in Reagan's term, had died, and the youn ...

Tired of everyone complaining about Pres. Obama vacation. George Bush spent almost 2 years on vacation. Obama has taken Fewer Than George Bush Vacation Time George W. Bush was criticized for spending nearly 500 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, during his two terms in office. He was there in August 2001 when he received a CIA briefing paper warning of al-Qaida's intentions to strike the United States – about a month before the Sept. 11 attacks would occur. In 2005, he remained on vacation after Hurricane Katrina swamped New Orleans and devastated the Gulf Coast. His presidency suffered from his response to the storm and his decision to not immediately return to Washington. The costliest former president? George W.

Tom Zinzi, didn't the tradition of championship teams visiting the White House start with the Redskins when President Reagan was in office?
Some *** writes an editorial to the Akron Beacon Journal saying how he's disgusted that President Obama is wasting his time on ESPN filling out March Madness brackets. He defends his point by saying that Russia president Vladimir Putin is probably not spending his time analyzing Russian sports. Oh wait...he forgot to mention that Putin just spend $50 billion to bring the Winter Olympics to a country that lives mostly in poverty, not to mention all the shirtless photos of him hunting, fishing, and doing whatever other leisure sports he does. He also forgot to mention that President Reagan, who was beloved by many, was largely responsible for creating the tradition of hosting sports championship teams at the White House. Presidents Clinton and both Bush 41 and 43 were also known to be big sports fans. Not to mention, isn't it good to know our president can relate to the activities of the average man?

Radio Lore in Guyana By Wayne Jones Guyana Chronicle November 2, 2003 Related Links: Articles on history Letters Menu Archival Menu IT IS said that the purpose of language is to express, not to impress. The early radio broadcasters understood that maxim well. The communication effort is not completed until people understand and are motivated. One of the Guyanese radio journalists who did that well was the gifted, Rafiq Khan, a thorough and upright man. Rafiq inducted many aspiring broadcasters into the field by teaching them the implications of this principle. Hugh Cholmondeley, veteran broadcaster, mediator and teacher gave high praise to his communication skills especially as political mediator in Guyana. Hugh Hamilton skillfully began reading the news one evening. It is alleged that he called President Reagan out of his name. Guyana was at that time earnestly courting American investments, so talented Hugh was sacrificed. Guyana radio had known just a few broadcasters who could edit the news while on a ...

Which First Lady Flies Highest? Michelle vs. Laura Diana Oprinescu July 9, 2013 With the attention Michelle Obama has received for her various trips – and they no doubt have cost taxpayers some significant chunks of change – you might be surprised at the results of National Taxpayers Union Foundation’s (NTUF’s) peek into our two most recent First Ladies’ international travelling habits. Michelle Obama has already travelled 72 days abroad up to this point. Certainly not an insignificant total, and her first term tally of 55 days abroad is more than President Reagan spent abroad in his first term. Yet, Michelle’s two-term travel record will almost assuredly fail to keep pace with Laura Bush’s record-setting feat. The former First Lady racked up a two-term total of 212 days abroad. Her second term included 135 days of international travel, which is more time than her husband, George W. Bush, spent abroad during the same time period! In fact, if you compare Laura Bush to the Presidents, she is c ...

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 hel ...

Day in History ~ Vietnam War 16 March 1988: Reagan orders troops into Honduras Since taking office in 1981, the Reagan administration had used an assortment of means to try to remove the leftist Sandinista government of Nicaragua. President Reagan charged that the Sandinistas were pawns of the Soviet Union and were establishing a communist beachhead in the Western Hemisphere, though there was little evidence to support such an accusation. Nonetheless, Reagan's administration used economic and diplomatic pressure attempting to destabilize the Sandinista regime. Reagan poured millions of dollars of U.S. military and economic aid into the so-called "Contras," anti-Sandinista rebels operating out of Honduras and Costa Rica. By 1988, however, the Contra program was coming under severe criticism from both the American people and Congress. Many Americans came to see the Contras as nothing more than terrorist mercenaries, and Congress had acted several times to limit the amount of U.S. aid to the Contras. In an . ...

From "American Minute" for March 15th: On MARCH 15, 1941, Franklin Roosevelt warned at the Dinner of White House Correspondents: "Modern tyrants find it necessary to eliminate all democracies... A few weeks ago I spoke of...freedom of speech and expression, freedom of every person to worship God in his own way... If we fail - if democracy is superseded by slavery - then those...freedoms, or even the mention of them, will become forbidden things. Centuries will pass before they can be revived... When dictatorships disintegrate - and pray God that will be sooner...then our country must continue to play its great part... May it be said of us in the days to come that our children and our children's children rise up and call us blessed." The Senate voted down letting children voluntarily pray in public schools on MARCH 15, 1984. President Reagan said: "I am deeply disappointed that, although a majority of the Senate voted for it, the school prayer amendment fell short." On September 25, 1982, Ronald Reagan sa ...
