>Ronald Reagan’s Nine Principles – A Code Of Conduct To Live By


The following was taken from Michael Reagan’s “The Reagan Report”
As was the case at the onset of the Reagan era in 1980, the challenges that confront us today are enormous.  When Ronald Reagan gave his stirring speech at the 1976 Republican National Convention in Kansas City that hot August evening few realized at the time that it portended a new dawn in American politics.  Many even regretted that he wasn’t the party’s nominee to run for President.  Four years later all that changed…and so did America.  How do the “Reagan Principles” play against the scenario of America in the 21st century?  In what way can they apply to today’s events?  Michael Reagan explains them:

1)  Party Unity: How the Tea Party movement could revitalize the Republican Party – or cripple it

2)  Open Communication: How conservatives can build winning coalitions with independents and even with liberal Democrats

3)   Individual Freedom: Why those who say “the era of Reagan is over” are right – and wrong
Free Economy: Why Keynesian economics always fails – and Reaganomics works every time its tried

4)  Responsibility To The Future: What America must do to prevent the coming economic and societal meltdown, and what conservatives should look for in their next presidential candidate

5)   Applying The Reagan Ideal Of Uniting And Working Together: start by asking those in debate “how do we agree?’ and accentuate the positive

6)  Stop The Invasion Of Private Rights: stand up for your faith and the fight the notion of separation of church and state

7)  The Banner Of Bold Colors: making sure voters have a true choice by being bold and not worrying about critics

8)   Carrying A Message Like Ronald Reagan Did: Don’t demand your candidate agree on every issue with you and be united and communicate compassion

9)   Reagan’s Call To Arms: make sure you’re up on all the issues and know where your opponent stands on each of them as well

Michael Reagan has learned his lessons well from a master builder and healer.  The principles told here in The New Reagan Revolution, are not merely a diagnosis of what plagues our nation.  Rather, it is a prescription to heal America.  A process to revive our nation rooted in the words and deeds of his father.  In these pages, Reagan shares the plan his father developed over years of study, observation, reflection, and action as first governor of California and then as a two-term President.  

It was the plan Ronald Reagan announced to the country in Kansas City that he then implemented four years later as President.  It put America on course for its most prosperous era in history.  It is also a plan that has no expiration date.  It is timeless, and is absolutely applicable to 2011 as well.  If America is to reclaim its rightful place as a true world leader and power, we need the sage advice and planning of Ronald Reagan more than ever.


Michael Reagan is the eldest son of President Ronald Reagan.  He served on the board for The John Douglas French Alzheimer’s Foundation, and has authored many successful books including his bestselling autobiography, On the Outside Looking In.  He has also hosted a highly rated, nationally syndicated, radio show.  He lives with his wife and two children in California.
Jim Denney has written over eighty books and collaborated with many authors.

Thanks for coming. Please leave a comment. Your opinion is as valuable as mine or anyone’s. Let’s create an active dialog. Let’s stand up for what we want, what we think and believe America should be like. Fight for your rights – and I don’t mean take to the street with guns. Do your fighting with the pen and conversation – friendly persuasion. Remember, we’re Americans living in the greatest nation on earth. Act like it. Don White

>What A Great Day – With Glenn Beck At The Helm We Shall Not Fail!

Both Democrats and Republicans have noted the change in attitude by Americans. Most polls show that Americans are not satisfied with the performance of Congress and the presidents these past one hundred fifty years.
Ever since 1913 when Progressive President Woodrow Wilson signed bills to institute a national bank, The Federal Reserve System, and start collecting income taxes, people have been unhappy. Why? Because it made government king. It enlarged the size of government and took control of things away from the people and the states.
Big government is a political disconnect by definition. Having someone go to Congress and spend twenty to forty years there is an abomination. We drastically need term limits to bring government back to the people. When you have someone in office for all that time you get rampant spending, budgets that are broken yearly, big unaccountable spending – and lately with Barak Obama it has been trillion-dollar deficits.
I hope that you agree with me that the Tea Party Movement is the best thing that has happened to America for a long, long time. I am praying that the Conservative Congress we have elected for 2011 and 2012 will get the job done for America. It doesn’t mean passing more new laws that require massive regulations. Just the opposite. They need to wind down things Obama and his communist friends have done to this country. Good luck, and God bless.

>This Freedom Video May Be The Most Important of The Year

NIA Releases Most Important Documentary in U.S. History

The National Inflation Association is pleased to announce the release of ‘End of Liberty’, a new one-hour and fourteen minute documentary about how the United States is headed for hyperinflation and a complete societal collapse. ‘End of Liberty’ is the most eye-opening film ever produced about the U.S. government. This could be the most important documentary ever released in our nation’s history.

‘End of Liberty’ is now available to watch for free on NIA’s video page.

‘End of Liberty’ was made possible by thousands of NIA members who submitted their warning signs that a societal collapse is near. Each of these warning signs on their own may not have a lot of meaning, but together they paint a complete picture of America’s dismal future. NIA believes ‘End of Liberty’ is a must see for all Americans who want to survive the upcoming currency crisis and collapse of civilization that will occur as a result of hyperinflation.

NIA’s previous critically acclaimed documentaries ‘Meltup’, ‘The Dollar Bubble’, and ‘Hyperinflation Nation’ have now received over 2.2 million views. NIA has already proven in its previous documentaries that the U.S. dollar will soon become worthless and Americans will see the purchasing power of their savings and income destroyed. ‘End of Liberty’ proves through a real life perspective that America’s days as the world’s super power are behind us and in a best case scenario, Americans will see a dramatic decline in their standard of living this decade.

This upcoming week is one of the most important weeks in our nation’s history. The Federal Reserve is getting ready to announce massive quantitative easing at the same time as Americans vote in the 2010 U.S. elections. Quantitative easing is nothing more than the Federal Reserve printing money and creating inflation. Inflation is a hidden and deceptive tax that steals purchasing power from the incomes and savings of all Americans. With both Democrats and Republicans promising more entitlements and lower taxes, Americans will be faced with exploding budget deficits in the years ahead that can only be paid for by the Federal Reserve creating massive inflation.

‘End of Liberty’ features Gerald Celente, the world’s most accurate trends forecaster of the century; as well as NIA’s President Gerard Adams, who perfectly timed the short-term bottom in the silver market both on February 5th and July 28th of this year. The movie also features Vinny, an NIA member who shows us his own personal food storage for hyperinflation, which he intends to use not just to support himself and his family, but others in his neighborhood who are willing to barter using silver and gold.

NIA has consistently been at the forefront of all of our nation’s economic trends. On July 19th, with everybody in the mainstream media talking about the threat of deflation, NIA released an article entitled, ‘Double-Dip Recession Does Not Mean Deflation’. In this article, NIA said, “this is the calm before the storm…the Federal Reserve is quietly getting ready to implement ‘The Mother of All Quantitative Easing’.” NIA expects this prediction to be proven right this week.

NIA has strongly urged Americans in all of its documentaries to get their wealth out of the U.S. dollar and invest in gold and silver. Since the release of NIA’s first documentary ‘Hyperinflation Nation’, gold has risen by 48% and silver has risen by 74%. Silver is also up 43% since NIA declared silver the best investment for the next decade on December 11th, 2009, at $17.40 per ounce.

It is extremely important for you to watch ‘End of Liberty’ immediately and spread the word to your family members, friends, and co-workers. Although it is too late to prevent a U.S. dollar collapse, it is not too late to prepare enough Americans for the collapse so that we have enough resources to rebuild America in the future. The time to act is now. Those who wait for the mainstream media to start talking about the risk of hyperinflation, will go broke in the process.

Whether it is the Democrats or Republicans who are successful this week is completely irrelevant when the Federal Reserve is getting ready to print as much as $1 trillion in new U.S. dollars. The only candidate running for U.S. Senate who NIA strongly supports is Rand Paul, because he believes in limited government, protecting the constitution, and sound money; the three most important principles of NIA members. While politicians in Washington along with the mainstream media continue to distract Americans with debates about taxation, taxes are irrelevant when they only cover 58% of our government’s spending. Inflation should be the #1 concern of all Americans and NIA will not rest until Americans become educated to the truth about the U.S. economy and the real economic crisis that is still ahead.

You had to be there to feel the spirit of the occassion. I was and it was amazing.

Was that providential or a Higher Power overriding the Air Force?
Have you ever felt GOD was on your side? Just Coincidence?
During the Glenn Beck rally in D.C., August 28, they requested a military  ‘ fly over ‘ and were denied (big surprise!)
God, however, overruled.  The flyover you’re about to see took place at 9:59 AM the morning of the rally that was to begin at 10:00 AM.

>Obama Won’t Listen To This Ex-War Hero – O Never Served!


WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out !

This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii 
For his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

Dear President Obama,       
     My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.  People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert. 
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as aMaster Chief Bos’n Mate.  Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country. 
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man. 
So here goes. 
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish. 
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. 
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like: 
             “We’re no longer a Christian nation.” 
             “America is arrogant.” – (Your wife even 
                 Announced to the world,” America is mean- 
                 Spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching 
                 That nonsense to 23 generations of our 
                 War dead buried all over the globe who 
                 Died for no other reason than to free a 
                 Whole lot of strangers from tyranny and 
I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you.  To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House. 
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.” 
Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?  Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?  I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom. 
I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination.  You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected. 
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. 
Shape up and start acting like an American.  If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue.  You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves. 
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight?  You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists. 
One more thing.  I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son.  Do your job.  When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him.  But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out.  The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of. 
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.   
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat.  
Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. 
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle. 
Harold B. Estes 
 Snopes confirms as true:

When a 95 year old hero of the “the Greatest Generation” stands up and speaks out like this, I think we owe it to him to send his words to as many Americans as we can. Please pass it on.

>Obama’s Puerto Rican Sham: Statehood

>I invite you to start watching the Glenn Beck Program on Fox, as Paul Christensen, below, suggests. If you are busy at 5 p.m, record it to watch later. It is outrageous that the LA ( Latino) city council members – and other liberal cities like St. Paul, MN – are actually acting like a nation of their own and boycotting the state of Arizona and others like Utah, and Texas whose legislatures plan to pass similar border legislation to that which Arizona has passed. 

The plain truth of the matter is this: 
The Feds refuse to regulate illegal immigration. There are more than 450,000 illegals in Arizona alone. Probably one hundred thousand in each of the western states and far more in California. The drain on human services for Arizona and other states is terrific and unsustainable over time. Obama knows this. He is itching for the chance to bail out all of the states and eliminate states’ rights, creating one big national dictatorship. 

Barak Obama and his progressive friends won’t enforce laws already on the books in a meaningful way – people coming to the US must have visas, passports, or legal citizenship of the USA before they can come here. These people from Mexico and beyond have no legitimate right to be here. And we’re getting their worst people – the thugs, criminals, drug runners, and murderers. 
The Federal Government is not doing its job, so we should not criticize Arizona for wanting to stem the tide of illegal immigration. I wholeheartedly support the efforts of states passing such laws, even if portions of the laws may later be declared unconstitutional by myopic judges who rule by the false notion of “political correctness.”  I hope that will not happen in Arizona’s case because the law itself says it prohibits racial profiling and a sheriff must have reasonable cause to detain someone on the street and even ask for their identification. Reasonable cause doesn’t include color of skin. 

My brother-in-law, Paul Christensen, who lives in St. George, Utah, has written the following on the subject. He pays special note to Puerto Rico which today may be called on to vote for statehood. The government knows Puerto Rico, a territory of the U.S., doesn’t want statehood. It would mean paying Federal taxes. The machinery for statehood is expensive and would require crippling local and state taxes on those poor people. I suggest you tune in tonight to Glenn Beck for more on this. 
The progressives know that if you announce a legitimate statehood vote in reasonable time in advance, Puerto Rico citizens will turn down statehood. They have done so three times. Obama hopes to slip this one in on us. What happened to “transparency?”
The Obama Progressives will offer them a “false choice.” First they will ask “if you are satisfied with the current state of affairs in Puerto Rico” and most of them will vote “No.” in a second vote there will only be two things on the ballot – statehood or a continuation of poverty in Puerto Rico? You ask a question this way and you can make the people say anything you want them to say, including that they want statehood.
It’s a trap! Obama, the community organizer, and his band of criminals surrounding him, have concocted an evil plan. It’s the wrong way to hold an election and should be rejected by every fair minded citizen of America. Obama has 200 attorneys at your expense writing this kind of unconstitutional malarky – many are attorneys and some are ex-convicts or communists and Marxists.  All of these progressives are for the downfall of our Constitution and free enterprise and for making Puerto Rico a state, which is just the first step.

Next they will make the District of Columbia a state. Obama is a dictator in the making. To remain in office for the next forty years like Castro… he must stack the deck. This is his way of creating a majority of poor people who will always vote for the man who offers them the biggest handout. Instead of a way for man to pull themselves up by their bootstraps as Lincoln said. Free Enterprise is under siege. Government ownership and manipulation is gaining stature in America. Freedom of Choice is leaving us.  Study the gospel of Jesus Christ. See if there weren’t parallels to this in the Grand Council before we came to earth. It’s all about agency and the freedom of man…
(Thanks, Paul, for your update. I have added my two cents to what you said).

From: Paul Christensen

If you have not been watching Glenn Beck, I am urging you to do so.  This is so important that we watch this because of the things that are unfolding right now with the progressives and their attempt to take over the nation.  If you have Fox news i would emphatically urge you to watch.  And if it comes on at a time where it is not possible to watch please Tevo it.  This is crucial. 
Mr Beck makes some valid points and it seems to go along with what the progressives are trying to accomplish.  That is a one world government.  I do not believe any of us want this so it is important that we wake ourselves up so we can do what we can to educate ourselves and other as to what is happening. 
Today Puerto Rico is being asked to vote on whether they want to become a state.  They have rejected it three times in the past and now the wording  on this vote is different.  The progressives have manipulated the machine so bad that the people of Puerto Rico, if they vote to pass this one this time they will become a state whether they like it or not.  The reason they are doing this is because they are trying to stack the voting machine on the side of the Democrats.  They have done this with the blacks since during the last election they received 95% of the black vote.  These people do not think but rather vote the color of their skin.  They talk about prejudice, but if this voting is not prejudice I do not know what is.  I WATCH the news every day and the blacks are so vehemently siding with Obama it makes me sick.  If I see a black making comments, I will tune them out or I will change the channel because I already know what they will say.  
We see what is happening with Arizona with the influx of the Illegal aliens.  Now Arizona is in a real pickle with this one so they had to choice other than to do what they did.  It is up to the Federal Government to secure the borders and they have been asked by the people of Arizona to do this for years which it has neglected to do.  I keep hearing this come up and that is, it would be impossible for us to deport 12 million of the illegal Mexicans back to Mexico.  But why not stop the influx.  The reason they do not do this is because they do not want to deport them but rather want to be able to pass the amnesty so they can secure their vote.  They are being lied to and manipulated by the Democrats.  The Democratic party is no longer the Democrats but they are the party of the progressives.  It is the progressive party!  Hilary Clinton has came out and said that she is a progressive.  She makes no bones about it.  Progressives to me equates to Unamerican. They want to overthrow the government and the Constitution of the United States of America.  They are so brazen that they now make no bones about it.  We used to hear that we need the Illegal Mexicans here to pick the fruit that the Americans would not pick.  Are you trying to tell me that 12 million Mexicans are here doing seasonal work and picking fruit.  That is preposterous.  They are employed by other means.  Taking your kids jobs and my jobs.  They are taking my tax monies while paying no taxes at all.  They are the biggest leaches and are certainly not concerned about your or my welfare and they have no morals or ethics.  87% of the Mexican that come into the United States have a record so that tells you what kind of people that we are getting.  We are not getting the cream of the crop but the bottom of the barrel.  They are killing ranchers in Arizona, sheriffs, and even a two year old girl.  Did you hear any of this in the media?  I will bet not.   All the Democrats want is to keep themselves in office so they can destroy our country.  

>Getting America Right By Stopping A Frankenstein Government Democrats Have Invented


Freedom is Rare and Delicate

For the July Providence City newsletter each year I write a mini July 4th oration. This year I chose to quote Milton Friedman’s introduction to his 1962 book Capitalism and Freedom. His words seem to strike right at the heart of current federal policy:

“The free man will ask neither what his country can do for him nor what he can do for his country. He will ask rather ‘What can I and my compatriots do through government’ to help us discharge our individual responsibilities, to achieve our several goals and purposes, and above all, to protect our freedom. And he will accompany this question with another: How can we keep the government we create from becoming a Frankenstein that will destroy the very freedom we establish it to protect? Freedom is a rare and delicate plant.”

Here’s Don White’s response to this fine comment above:

You are so right. I enjoyed Milton Freidman’s book too. It is amazing how accurate he became in writing more than 30 years ago about what Barak Obama is attempting to do to America. I’m a former Utahn, and thus my conservative roots. The more government does for people, the weaker our people become. It is Obama’s grand scheme to weaken Americans and build the government — especially his popularity — so much that we can’t do without bailouts and doles — and without him as president. It is backfiring. People aren’t stupid. We are now just awakening to the realization of how greatly he has already shackled and enslaved us with his spend, spend, spend ethos. Long live our freedoms. They are God-given,and any party and government that attempts to eliminate them should be voted down.

>Muslims in England Would Overturn Freedom


Does Freedom of Speech allow seditious Muslims license to call for the overthrow of free governments?

England and America are two of the world’s finest examples of free, democratic countries peopled largely by God-fearing souls who above all value their freedom–which they consider a God-given thing.

When America won it’s Independence from England, it did so because it was right. America had been endowed by God with outstanding leadership: Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, Adams, Franklin…and, yes, Thomas Paine. He was not a politician but a writer whose bold rhetoric left the word “Freedom” ringing in the ears of all of the above and almost every man alive in America. Of course the Tories pledged their allegiance to Britain, but they became the minority when American Colonists started defeating the Red Coats. They were also known as lobsterbacks, referring to the red coats of British soldiers.

Now we have a threat from without, the aggressive Militant Muslims who say one thing and do another. And they aren’t limited to the Wahabbis, but rather most Muslims who believe in the Shari’ah, a system of law based on the Qu’ran, their Bible. They say their religion, Islam, is a pacific, peace-loving document when in reality we know that Mohammad was not a peacemaker but a militant bent on conquering the world, which he did about 634 A.D.

Today, as portrayed in the photo above, militant foreigners want to destroy England and America and they are so bold as to march the streets of London shouting their lies, threats, and profanities–such as more 9/11s for London and America.

Why can’t we send them home to Iran or to where they came from? If they are citizens of Western countries, why can’t the governments prosecute them? Yes, we have freedom of speech, contrary to many Arab countries, and they can say what they want, but the line is drawn when they incite riots and overthrow of a government by less than peaceful means.

This show of defiance is just the first step in their religion’s march for world dominance.

I once wrote a small article of speculation about the polygamist Muslims. Under the law, each Muslam man can have four wives. If you start with 5,000 polygamist men each having four wives, how many Muslims will there be in 20 years or in one generation? The answer is 160,000. They have large families. Assume 8 to a family. After 40 years that number would have grown to 5.12 million Muslims. After three generations, when the original 20-year-old men who stated this test would be 80, there would be about 164 million Muslims, which could constitute a country the size of Spain, Great Britain and France combined.

If that’s the kind of world domination they riot for they may well get it. Polygamy is against the law in America. Witness what Texas authorities did to the RLDS polygamists recently. They jailed them and took over their children, an act that was finally overturned by an appeals judge.

Be ever watchful about those who would defeat your freedoms. If we had been beaten by Hitler’s Germany in World War II, or today by Russia or China which are very dictatorial, most of the Freedoms we enjoy in America would be lost. The same is true if we had to live under Muslim domination.

Note Thomas Pain’s words in his article called ‘The Crisis,’ where he says: ‘These are the times that try men’s souls…. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered!’ Even an unappreciative posterity knows that line, but we, perhaps, remember him best for his declaration: ‘The world is my country; to do good my religion.’

If Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, and Monroe were the active political figures responsible for bringing about the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, then Paine was the fire that ignited the feeling for freedom in the hearts of most Americans. Guard well your freedoms.
