Episode Date
Veterans Day
30:51
Although we’re two months past the event, we wanted to share with you today our November 11, 2020 Veterans Day Ceremony which was very special to us at the Reagan Foundation.  Veterans Day is always special to us – as it’s a day to thank our nation’s heroes for our freedom – but this year was even more special because it was the first in-person event we have held since the COVID19 shutdown of our campus.  We were only permitted to host 100 people on our campus, and those 100 people were made up of veterans, active military and their families, and then the event was livestreamed to anyone else who wanted to watch. Our program had two keynote speakers – Congressman and former fighter pilot – Mike Garcia, and Congressman and former Navy Seal, Dan Crenshaw. Congressman Garcia represents California’s 25th congressional district – which is home to the Reagan Library.  He’s also a highly decorated United States Naval officer and leader who served his country with distinction and is lauded as one of the most talented fighter pilots in the Navy. Congressman Crenshaw represents Texas’s 2nd congressional district.  As a Navy Seal he served five overseas deployments, and during the third was struck by an IED blast in Afghanistan, destroying his right eye and leaving him almost blind in his left.  Yet he recovered and did two more deployments overseas, finally retiring in 2016 as a Lt Commander. Let’s listen.

Candace Owens is the founder of the BLEXIT Foundation, which is dedicated to the advancement of urban and minority communities by encouraging youth to seek and take advantage of opportunities in 21st Century America..  She is also the host of “The Candace Owens Show” on PragerU which airs every other Sunday. In describing herself, she has said: Choosing to think has been one of the most transformative secrets of my life. It’s brought me closer to others and has opened the world up to me in a way that I never knew was possible. I believe if we can turn the dial on the way people view themselves, we can change the world instantly – for the better. I am a fighter. And right now, I’m fighting for the heart and soul of a country I love. During today’s conversation with Reagan Foundation and Institute Executive Director John Heubusch, Candace Owens discusses her brand-new book, “Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape From the Democrat Plantation, “ which she says lays bare the myth that all black people should vote Democrat—and shows why turning to the right will leave them happier, more successful, and more self-sufficient. Let's Listen.

Each person emphasizes a different part of the Constitution―from the Bill of Rights to the 19th Amendment and beyond―and why those particular passages are important, serving as a key resource for those looking to better appreciate the foundation of American government and to increase our understanding of its application during its initial creation and still today.

Fred Ryan
59:31
During the virtual conversation, we discussed a brand-new book published by the White House Historical Society called, Wine and the White House: A History.  The first book of its kind, Wine and the White House is a comprehensive journey through the history of White House hospitality that explores every president’s experience of wine. The fully illustrated pages also feature memorable presidential toasts, menus from historic White House gatherings, a catalog of vintages served, and spectacular new photography of the White House glassware collection. Early presidents recognized the important function wine played in entertaining at the White House. While some appreciated and enjoyed wine, others considered it merely a ceremonial necessity. Still, others campaigned to outlaw wine and banned it from the White House; their successors celebrated its return. More recently, all presidents, regardless of whether they enjoyed wine themselves, have used the White House as a venue to showcase the fine wines produced in the United States. Today’s conversation was between the Reagan Foundation and Institute Executive Director John Heubusch, and the book’s author, Fred Ryan, who served as President Reagan’s Assistant to the President from 1982 to 1989 and as his post-presidential Chief of Staff from 1989 until 1995.

In a 2005 essay in the Wall Street Journal about his career change from journalism to the military, he said, “living in China … shows you what a nondemocratic country can do to its citizens.  I’m not an uncritical, rah-rah American.  Living abroad has sharpened my view of what’s wrong with my country, too.  It’s obvious that we need to reinvent ourselves in various ways, but we should also be allowed to do it from within, not according to someone else’s’ dictates.” During today’s conversation with Reagan Institute director Roger Zakheim, Mr. Pottinger discusses the increasingly tense US – china relationship.

As we think of 9-11, we cannot forget, we cannot be complacent, and we most certainly cannot let the terrorists win.  Ronald Reagan said it best:“When terrorism strikes, civilization itself is under attack; no nation is immune.  There’s no safety in silence or neutrality.  If we permit terrorism to succeed anywhere, it will spread like a cancer, eating away at civilized societies and sowing fear and chaos everywhere…the United States can be proud of the role that it plays in that struggle…In our time, it’s terrorism that must be overcome.”

Ted Kennedy
54:46
President Reagan felt very strongly about reaching across the aisle and working in a bipartisan manner.  He used to joke that he and Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill could argue all day long, but at 5 pm they could enjoy each other’s company over a friendly glass of beer. Another friend from across the aisle was Senator Ted Kennedy. The two men knew how to be political adversaries, not political enemies. In 2002 when Senator Kennedy presented President Reagan with the Congressional Gold Medal, he described the president as “a good friend and a generous foe.” And that the President “sought to defeat his opponents, not destroy them.” On April 28, 2007, Senator Ted Kennedy spoke at the Reagan Library to a sold-out audience which included Mrs. Nancy Reagan and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

A Reagan Forum "Eric Bolling"
49:09
When our nation’s capital was built in Washington DC, it was constructed on the sight of a swamp that had to be drained. President Trump believes that we need to repeat history – in other words, “drain the swamp.”  In his new book, The Swamp, Eric Bolling presents an anger inducing, amusing, revealing, and outrageous history of American politics -- past and present, Republican and Democrat.  Bolling covers a litany extraordinarily appalling national political scandals, high crimes and misdemeanors, and even events that should have been simply a blip on the radar and mushroomed into a spiraling-out-of-control controversies. Bribery, blackmail, backroom dealings…they’ve always been a part of our political make up, but it seems it’s getting worse all the time. And those that get hurt most are the American people.  The Swamp is chock full of one doozy after another by our elected officials, and mirrors the way Washington national politics currently – and apparently always – has been played out. Can President Donald J Trump actually live up to his campaign promise of “draining the swamp?” Eric Bolling has become one of the most important “must listen to” voices and “must read” opinion-makers on today’s political narrative, regardless of where you reside on the political aisle. He is the author of the New York Times, Wall Street journal, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller Wake Up America. He is currently the host of the new hit Fox News Channel Show, “The Fox News Specialists,” and before that was one of the hosts of FNC’s “The Five.” He also is the host of the Fox Business Network show, “Cashin’ In.” Before coming to Fox, Bolling was a successful New York Mercantile Exchange trader for many years.

A Reagan Forum "Brad Thor"
56:36
In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel,  part demon. They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai. Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins. One man is all three. Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly. Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out. With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive. But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge. Brad Thor’s internationally bestselling novels have been published in over 24 countries. Mr. Thor has served as a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Analytic Red Cell Unit, and has lectured to law enforcement organizations on over-the-horizon/future threats. He has been a keynote speaker for the National Tactical Officers Association annual conference, the Young America’s Foundation, and the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration.

A Reagan Forum "Mark Levin"
1:04:14
The Mark Levin Show has been one of the top rated and hottest shows on Talk radio broadcasting daily on nearly 400 stations since its inception. He is also one of the top authors in the political arena. Mark’s show on WABC in New York City skyrocketed to Number 1 on the AM dial in his first 18 months on the air in the competitive 6:00 PM and hasn’t looked back since. Mark has been a frequent guest and substitute host on The Sean Hannity Show, and has also been an advisor to Limbaugh, who frequently refers to him on the air with the nickname "F. Lee Levin." He is perhaps more well-known for his nickname, "The Great One," coined by his friend Hannity. On Television, Mark heads “Life, Liberty & Levin” on The Fox News Channel, a show that goes beyond soundbites and clickbait with in depth analysis and interviews that effect todays issues that get only a minute or so on other outlets. Mark also hosts “LevinTV”, a nightly program available to subscribers on CRTV. Mark Levin is one of America’s preeminent conservative commentators and constitutional lawyers. Levin is also the Editor-in-Chief of Conservative Review, a contributing editor for National Review Online. He has served as a top advisor to several members of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet – including as Chief of Staff to the Attorney General of the United States. In 2001, the American Conservative Union named Levin the recipient of the prestigious Ronald Reagan Award. He currently practices law in the private sector, heading up the prestigious Landmark Legal Foundation in Washington DC. From five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Mark R. Levin comes a groundbreaking and enlightening book that shows how the great tradition of the American free press has degenerated into a standardless profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American public, not through actions of government officials, but through its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism.Unfreedom of the Press shows how those entrusted with news reporting today are destroying freedom of the press from within: “not government oppression or suppression,” he writes, but self-censorship, group-think, bias by omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and outright lies as news.

A Reagan Forum "Shannon Bream"
55:56
Whether it’s her work today as a reporter and host for Fox News, her years in law school, or the time she spent competing in pageants like Miss America,  Shannon Bream has spent her entire adult life navigating high- pressure environments where perfection is expected and competition is the name of the game. But in this laugh- out-loud book of stories and inspiration, Shannon shares the moments away from the cameras and the halls of government, in which she learned that the values and faith of her blue-collar upbringing could keep her grounded in a world where everyone wants you to be something other than who you are. In Finding the Bright Side, Shannon continues a conversation about authenticity, humility, and trusting in God that she’s already begun with her followers on social media. She shares behind-the-scenes stories from Washington, D.C., revelations from her time reporting on the Supreme Court, and lessons learned from the most challenging moments of her life—from the time she was fired from her first job and told, “You’re the worst person I’ve ever seen on TV,” to the time she heard “There is no cure.” But through all of this, faith (and a little bit of stubbornness!) has helped Shannon to keep hope, find purpose in the pain, and find laughs along the way. Shannon Bream currently serves as anchor of Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream (weekdays 11pm-12am/ET). She joined the network in 2007 as a Washington D.C. based correspondent covering the Supreme Court.

Arlington National Cemetery is the most sacred shrine in America. Its hallowed grounds contain presidents, privates, and some of the most famous names in military and political history—Supreme Court justices, five-star generals, and Medal of Honor recipients—as well as liberated slaves, and, at the fabled Tomb of the Unknown, the bodies of soldiers known only to God. Sacred Duty, is not only an intimate and inspiring portrait of Arlington National Cemetery’s Old Guard (the official ceremonial unit of the U.S. Army and America’s oldest infantry unit, dating to 1784), but also a personal chronicle of Senator Cotton’s time as a platoon leader in the unit.   In writing and researching the book, Senator Cotton has spent the past year closely shadowing the unit’s soldiers, original reporting that forms the spine of the book. Tom Cotton is a United States  Senator  from  Arkansas. He served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division and   in Afghanistan with a Provincial Reconstruction Team. Between combat tours, he served with the United States Army’s 3rd Infantry Regiment (“The Old Guard”) at Arlington National Cemetery.

What if the Russians really are colluding with Americans...on the left? #1 New York Times-bestselling author Newt Gingrich returns with this rollicking tale of high-stakes international intrigue—the first book in a contemporary series filled with adventure, betrayal, and politics, that captures the tensions and divides of America and the world today. Collusion raises many of the most significant issues facing America in real life today. Is Russia our ally, or our enemy? Are American leftist activists susceptible to influence from aboard? How far will our enemies go to disrupt our politics and weaken the nation? Can we trust the media to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys? Newt  Gingrich   and   Pete   Earley   have   entertained and educated readers with three previous novels of Washington scandal and foreign interference. From its explosive opening through several twists  and  turns  to its heart-stopping end, Collusion is their most timely and powerful novel yet.

As the fiftieth anniversary of the first lunar landing approaches, the award winning historian and perennial New York Times bestselling author takes a fresh look  at the space program, President John F. Kennedy’s inspiring challenge, and America’s race to the moon. Drawing on new primary source material and major interviews with many of the surviving figures who were key to America’s success, Brinkley brings this fascinating history to life as never before. American Moonshot is a portrait of the brilliant men and women who made this giant leap possible, the technology that enabled us to propel men beyond earth’s orbit to the moon and return them safely, and the geopolitical tensions that spurred Kennedy to commit himself fully to this audacious dream. A vivid and enthralling chronicle of one of the most thrilling, hopeful, and turbulent eras in the nation’s history, American Moonshot is an homage to scientific ingenuity, human curiosity, and the boundless American spirit.

Each year the program includes live musical entertainment from the 1st Marine Division Band, an honor guard, a rifle guard, and the official laying of the White House Presidential Wreath on President Reagan’s gravesite. Keynote speakers in prior years have included Rudy Giuliani, Elizabeth Dole, James Baker, and Sam Donaldson. In this week’s A Reagan Forum podcast, we listen in to the ceremony held on February 6, 2019 with keynote speaker Senator Jon Kyl.
