Black America Regressing Under Obama; Prospered Under Reagan ^ | 03/25/2015 | James Agresti

The Washington Post recently published two opinion pieces in which the authors claimed that the economic policies of President Ronald Reagan—called Reaganomics—wreaked financial havoc on African Americans. To the contrary, the incomes of black households and families broadly rose during the Reagan administration, while in contrast, they have generally fallen during the current economic recovery.

In a March 1st column, Courtland Milloy showered praise on a playwright named August Wilson while wondering aloud if “there was a way for black boys in our public schools to benefit from Wilson’s potentially life-changing insights.” Milloy then proposed creating a school for “boys of color” in which Wilson’s works would help the boys “understand the world around them.” Milloy singled out one of Wilson’s plays entitled King Hedley, which “represents the tumultuous 1980s, when Reaganomics and crack cocaine inflicted damages from which many black communities never recovered.”

Jeb Bush, John Boehner And The Anti-Reagan Republican Establishment ^ | 3/4/15 | George Rasley

Ronald Reagan gained the Republican nomination for president, and eventually won the White House in 1980, by welding together all of the grassroots discontents with the Washington and Republican establishments and building what became known as the “three-legged stool” of the Reagan coalition; anti-communist national defense conservatives, fiscal conservatives and social conservatives.

The new Republican majority in Congress was forged by adding the limited government constitutional conservatives of the Tea Party movement to that three-legged stool. Practically every poll we see tells us that coalition represents a majority of the American electorate and should have been a solid and stable platform from which Republicans could govern for generations to come.

Except the leaders of the Republican establishment seem hell-bent on alienating enough elements of the coalition to………

Why Vote Republican?

Republicans, fresh from landslide victories in congressional, state, and local elections, were well-positioned to flex their newfound muscle by re-establishing constitutional checks and balances on an overzealous executive branch. Instead, Senate Majority Leader McConnell folded like a cheap suit, abandoning efforts to defund President Obama’s amnesty efforts. Tell me again why we need Republican majorities in Congress.

Why can’t Senator McConnell trigger the same “nuclear option” now? What about Obamacare? It remains alive and well despite Republican promises to “repeal and replace.”The latest excuse from Republican leadership is that they need the White House before they can accomplish anything. Really? What the Republicans need is backbone and leadership. Ronald Reagan ushered in hugely effective income tax cuts while working with a Democrat Congress.

Margaret Thatcher told us, “Consensus is the absence of leadership.” If the Republican leadership is waiting for consensus with the Democrats, that will never happen. Rather, they should be making their case, standing by their principles and promises, and fulfilling the mandate they were given last November. Republican voters don’t expect victory with each issue, but they do expect a principled stand and a fight, not a concession at the end of the first quarter. Let the president wield his veto pen. Congress has given him next to nothing to veto.

Giving in to Democrat opposition, as they have done with amnesty, debt ceilings, continuing spending resolutions, and other “line in the sand” issues leaves voters to scratch their heads, wondering what’s different having Congress under Republican control.

If Republican voters believe, to borrow from Mrs. Clinton, “What difference does it make?,” they will stay home again in 2016. The Republican Congress, as evidenced by the amnesty capitulation, is doing little to help.

The left’s legacy of liesby


PHD November 15, 2014

Who amongst us has ever heard of William A. Wirt?In her exceptional book “American Betrayal:


The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character,” Diana West writes that Wirt, a Gary, Indiana schools superintendent, asserted before a Congressional committee in May 1934 that there was a deliberately conceived plot among members of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal administration to overthrow the established social order in the United States and substitute a communist-style planned economy.

The Roosevelt administration well understood that if Wirt’s accusations were seriously investigated it might distract from or even halt their political momentum.

For that reason, it was decided that the proceedings would be a suppression of the truth rather than an uncovering of the truth.For performing his patriotic duty, Wirt was branded a liar by committee Democrats, smeared by the press and even ridiculed by Roosevelt himself, a fate that would likewise befall future anti-communists such as ex-Soviet agent Whittaker Chambers, journalist M. Stanton Evans, Representative Martin Dies D-TX and Senator Joseph McCarthy R-WI.

As West notes, a careful investigation of Wirt’s charges might have averted the Communist infiltration of the U.S. government that marked the middle decades of the twentieth century.

Expert estimates now peg the number of Americans assisting Soviet intelligence agencies during the 1930s and 1940s as exceeding five hundred, including high-ranking government officials such as Alger Hiss State Department, Lauchlin Currie White House, Harry Dexter White Treasury and Roosevelt’s most intimate and Lend-Lease boss Harry Hopkins, who twice covertly…….
