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 ...

The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place, as it has for almost two centuries, and few of us stop to think how unique we really are. In the eyes of many in the world, this every-4-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle. Mr. President, I want our fellow citizens to know how much you did to carry on this tradition. By your gracious cooperation in the transition process, you have shown a watching world that we are a united people pledged to maintaining a political system which guarantees individual liberty to a greater degree than any other, and I thank you and your people fo ...
On Air NOW: Former assistant secretary of defense to President Reagan, Richard Perle, weighs in on Iraq. LIVE:
All - I wrote a letter last week endorsing my top candidate, Meka Childs in the race for Superintendent. Like many of you, I knew Meka personally and felt like she would have made an excellent Superintendent of Education. 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. A woman that was appointed to high level federal government positions by President Reagan, President George HW Bush and President George W. Bush. Or voters can choose Molly Spearman.

Today is Thursday, June 12, 2014. On this date in American History: 1987 - At the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin, Germany, U.S. President Reagan publicly challenged Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. 2004 - Ronald Reagan was laid to rest in the underground vault at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. “We welcome change and openness; for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace. There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” -- Ronald Reagan, June 12, 1987 From the NFRW Americanism Committee
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 ...
“this is the most secretive White House I have ever been involved in covering, and that includes . . . presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush’s first term.” Jill Abramson - NYT
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 ...
"TRUE LOVE." President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy. Married in 1952 and together "HAPPILY EVER AFTER" (for 52 years) until President Reagan's passing on June 5, 2004. Whatever anyone's political affiliations or beliefs.one thing is certain. Nancy loved her "Ronnie" and Ronnie loved his Nancy. Mrs. Reagan (at 92 years of age) visited President Reagan's gravesite today at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. I hope EVERYONE will one day find...or already has their SOUL MATE. Ronald and Nancy Reagan were certainly that. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is A "MUST SEE" for all!

"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 ** ...

"Republican for some reason believe that President Reagan was just great. Other believe that as he got older he was not quite there sometimes. Well, here is what I think. He seemed to me to be asleep or tired a lot as he got older. Hey, that also describes me!" Forgot to mention the previous president Jimmy Carter. Did you know this about him? Did you? How many awards did President receive. How many? Among the honors Carter has received are the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1999 and the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. Others include: Freedom of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, 1977 Silver Buffalo Award, Boy Scouts of America, 1978 Gold medal, International Institute for Human Rights, 1979 International Mediation medal, American Arbitration Association, 1979 Martin Luther King, Jr., Nonviolent Peace Prize, 1979 International Human Rights Award, Synagogue Council of America, 1979 Conservationist of the Year Award, 1979 Harry S.

Yes, correct. On the same level that John Hinckley said that he shot President Reagan because of Jodie Foster.

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. Washington is the place where I spent the longest period of my life, and I have many great memories. One incident I shall never forget involves Wilbur Mills, a long-time speaker in the House and a one-time presidential candida ...
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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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?

On this day in 1981, President Reagan was shot, but survived, during an assassination attempt in Washington DC
Here, among others, are Vice President Bush and Secretary of State Haig in the Situation Room in the White House 33 years ago today. President Reagan was just shot in the chest by a crazed lunatic. The American people later learned that the bullet's location almost killed Reagan. Instead, he broke the string of Presidents, from 1840 on, who were elected in a year ending in 0 who were assassinated or died in office. Those who think Barack Obama is insulted unlike any President have short memories. I heard a number of people in the street, minutes after the news spread that Reagan was shot but alive, exclaim, "Too bad he missed."
It was this date in 1981 when US President Ronald Reagan met his death through an assassination. President Reagan was one of the great leaders the US has ever had. However on 30/3/1981 he made his last ever breath.We today still see him living in his outstanding achievements. We live to build on his foundation. REST IN PEACE PRESIDENT, ALUNTA CONTINUA.

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 ...

Steve Hanke was a Senior Economic Adviser to President Reagan. He's calling this phenomenon "a competitive threat to all currencies."

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 . ...

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 ...

"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 ...

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 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!!!

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 ...

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.

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.

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, ...

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.

"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 ...
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.

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!! Some of them I won awards, certificates, even had a person try to steal them!! Had offers from Nashville and even Nancy Reagan, President Reagan's wife!! But I turned them all down at the time, as I didn't want $ but was to my Son. Nancy wanted the 1 I wrote to the man who took his life because at the time the Just say Mo to drugs just cane out, and she wanted it for that...But the 1 i loved the most is The Stairway to Heaven which i won a Certificate for!!

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. In 1986, Associate Justice, Antonin Scalia is confirmed by the Senate 90–0 replacing. He has been called "the creative, brilliant, and outspoken intellectual leader of th .. ...

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 ...

That's then source of nthis foto:- In 1989 President Bush cited Noriega's drug dealing as one reason for his overthrow by the US Government. A thanks to Bryan Troupe (
(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?

We worked for Ronald Reagan...President Reagan didn't/wouldn't give two rips if you were *** or not.
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. White guilt, reverse racism, indoctrination, pandering, arrogance, i ...
President Reagan praised Taliban as" Freedom Fighters",Indirect full support came to them from our Embassy in Pakistan and late General Zia.

Alan Rickman as President Reagan is probably the greatest thing in the world.
For those of you that have a strong belief in our Constitution, set your DVR on FOX NEWS at midnight tonight for one hour. The show title is "Firing Line" hosted by Charles Krauthammer, the content is of President Reagan and William F Buckley Jr. in a strong interview from years ago. Excellent show. Notice how many of the things that are discussed is now starting to come true, and I will add not for the better. Two of this country's greatest men in our time. Enjoy.
