"Speaker Newt Gingrich welcome to America first one on one. Well, thank you very much and with that kind of an overwhelming introduction. How could I do anything with be happy to be with you? Well, we don't even need we shouldn't need to introduce you. I have this short bio that's on the back of your new book beyond Biden. I'll just mention one thing author of 41 books that enough said right there. I heard you speak just a few days ago at the museum of the Bible here in Washington, D.C. an amazing institution, where some great people from Liberty University and elsewhere, Doug the groot and the former Republican congressman Dave brat had an idea for a new contract with America like the one you penned this time for the business interests that are so stymied by this new administration. And let's start with what you said during that invigorating speech. You talked about the need for a positive attitude. The cheery attitude taught us about how the concept of the happy warrior. So embodied by Ronald Reagan is all the more important now in a post COVID age and with the trillions of dollars we see being wasted on Capitol Hill. I think one of my favorite terms is cheerful persistence. I think anything big at thanks persistence, but if you're cheerful, you are dramatically more likely to have people helping you get there. And I think that the objective fact is that 330 million free people, each endowed by their creator with the right to pursue happiness creates such momentum of creativity and excitement and enthusiasm and energy that despite the best efforts of the totalitarians on the left and the big government socialists and the woke radicals that in the end of free people went

Donald Trump and Mike Lindell Sit Down to Discuss Election Integrity

"Here's a little bit of the conversation between president Trump and Mike lyndell. No, I love the country. And I had to go and the goal was to do what we did. And I think you can almost say that few presidents, if any did what we did when we rebuilt the military, what we did was so much. And we did it under a lot of pressure because there were so many other outside forces that were fighting us. I just considered it a great honor. I was very disappointed as you were as as millions of people were. I think I read 78% of one of our great parties felt that the election was rigged and stolen. And it was rigged. And he said it was rigged. You know, we clipped that a little bit unfortunately, but that listen. And we're all nervous about this. Let me tell you why we're nervous about it 'cause I don't know what the right approach is. I don't have a crystal ball. I don't. I believe that Donald Trump was the single best president in my lifetime. The single most effective, most I've never seen a president receive the kind of support and enthusiasm that Donald J Trump received. It's never happened in my lifetime. We loved Ronald Reagan. The relationship between millions and millions of Americans and Donald Trump is like Ronald Reagan adulation on steroids. And something very special happened during those four years. The media, the beast revved up, they came after him, morning noon and night. I believe he is still as popular as ever. But I admit, I don't know.

"Welcome back to one on one with mister Reagan, AKA Chris nose. Chris, what is your message after this incredible upset in Virginia? What do you say to all those people who weren't paying attention to politics? When watching your show weren't listening to my show, but are now saying, yeah, these people who've been running things for decades their crazy. Should they just be listening or should they be doing more than that, Chris? Well, I'll tell you what. Who's the guy that went around doing all the cleanup Evers? The tall skinny guy. Oh, I know. The photo registration. Yeah, really good guy. Yeah. I know who you mean. He's doing. He's doing a hell of a job. Just going around and getting people engaged in running for their local school. I'm cleaning up Baltimore, getting a hundred people to go to Baltimore with trash bags and clean stuff up. Get your producer to find that guy's name. We need to promote that guy. He's an awesome guy. That's right. Yeah, he would actually physically go out with a bunch of people and clean up poor neighborhoods. Literally got pressed there. Good call. Good call. Thank you. Scott pressler. I interviewed him on the show. Awesome guy. Just really good personable human being, you know? And he would go out and he would physically clean up these neighborhoods. And the funny thing is, it's like these were oftentimes black inner city neighborhoods. And these are the neighborhoods that Democrats say they care about. Have you ever heard of a group of Democrats going out and physically cleaning the trash off the sidewalks in a black neighborhood? Of course not. But you do hear about conservatives doing it. And that's the kind of grassroots type thing that we need. And you made a good point about media. We are behind in portraying conservatives in a way that America likes. And I think the reason is because when you get when you have to lie about something, you have to be convincing. When you have to tell the truth, you don't feel like you have to invent some kind of amazing show. So conservatives aren't that good at presenting a show of who we are, left is a great at. They've been doing it for decades. So they're great at the show because they got to sell the lie. We're not that good at the show, because we're like, well, of course they're going to believe it.

'Mr. Reagan' Creator Chris Kohls Describes the Pop Culture Success of 'Let's Go Brandon'

"Welcome back to one on one with mister Reagan. Let's turn Chris to because I want to get the sense from you a world that I don't understand. Let's talk a little bit about media. You have to be cautious. That's why you've created this alter egos and these fantasy stories you tell about certain elections on your YouTube channel. How are you doing, by the way? Are you being throttled are you being demonetized? How are the the Palo Alto big tech overlords treating mister Reagan? I do think some of some of the restrictions have been lifted recently, and I'm not really sure why. But I had this video about let's go brand and you know the let's go Brandon phenomenon. I decided to recap that because it was something that I started to see on Twitter and I follow this stuff kind of closely, so I kind of understood what it was pretty quickly. But I realized most Americans did not understand what let's go Brandon was. They didn't understand where it came from. They didn't understand all the phenomena that went along with it. And I said, okay, let me just do a comprehensive video about the let's go Brandon movement. And I did this video and it's up to, I think, almost 400,000 views now. So we're doing pretty good. Yeah, that one just really blew up. That was I think a lot of people were curious. Like, I don't understand this. Let's go Brandon thing. So my video, I think is the number one, let's go brand and video on YouTube. That's not like a music video. You know, there's all these songs that have come out. And then I was able to interview this guy, loser, Alexander, who you should have on your show by the way. Great guys. Yes, yes, yes, yes. His song went number one on iTunes, right? He had the song the hook is, you know what they say in hoe. That's the hook of the song. It's a great song. It's like it's very catchy. Most of America just fell in love with this song, and then Bryson gray came out with a song that got actually banned on YouTube because he mentioned COVID pandemic stuff. And so his song then went number one. We've had some on this show. He's great. He's great. He's a great guy. He's a great, but I think part of the success of his version was people thinking they were buying lows version and they bought his version instead. And so his so Lowe's is a little bit irritated. He's like, what is going on? I mean, they're both good songs. They're both good songs, or like I can say anything bad about either of them, but so I got loser on the show and because he's out here in LA. And he's a really good guy. You know, he's a strong Christian. He's a good guy. And strong conservative Trump supporter and just really cool song and a lot of fun. Anyway, so some of my videos have been doing pretty well. Others struggle a little bit, but then, you know, they're not all

"Back one on one with mister Reagan, Chris Cole's. Okay, let's move on. Unless did you want us to add something on the bowl? I just want to say that that film sets do get boring. You know, they do get boring. There's a lot of downtime. A lot of downside. You know, where they're moving cameras, you're blocking your blocking means you're just setting up where you're going to stand or where you're going to walk to in the scene as an actor. You figuring out where the lights go and all that kind of stuff. So there's a lot of downtime. Now normally stand ins are there when you're doing all the setup and the blocking and stuff, well, at least doing the lights in the camera. But there's just a lot of downtime. And so you do get bored. And I can totally imagine just goofy around with a goofing around with a gun thinking there's blanks in it. And you know, I can imagine that that scenario happened. Now they're investigating it, so they're interviewing people, but you know, he's done several films I believe where he's had to use prop guns or oh man. Yeah. So I can imagine somebody who is really accustomed to playing around with a gun on set because, you know, the downtime, your accustomed to playing around with a gun, you get a bit bored and then something like this happens when you have some live rounds in the gun. You know, you should be very, very respectful of the gun when you're when you're using it even for a movie. You know, you need to be respectful. Because even with a blank, if you shoot somebody point blank with a blanket, you can kill them. Yeah, because that's actually happened on set because of the so you gotta be careful, even if it's a blank and for them to not be careful with that, it is mind

"reagan" Discussed on This American President

"On the afternoon of March 30th, 1981, president Ronald Reagan gave a speech at the Washington Hilton Hotel. After finishing the speech, he exited the hotel. At two 27 p.m., Reagan was about to get into his limo. When a 25 year old man named John hinckley junior aimed his revolver at the president, and unleashed a barrage of bullets. One of those bullets ricocheted off the limo and struck Reagan. Grazing his rib and lodging in his heart. In an instant, Secret Service agent Jerry parr reacted, grabbed Reagan by the shoulders. And through him and himself into the limo. When parr saar Reagan coughing blood, he realized the president, who, at 69 years old, was the oldest president up to that point, had been injured in order the driver to go to George Washington University hospital. Thankfully, president Reagan ended up surviving this harrowing incident. Agent parr likely saved Reagan's life. First by getting him out of the line of fire. And second, getting him to the hospital so quickly, he was hailed as a hero, and was given a commendation from the U.S. Congress, and a presidential rank award for meritorious executive among many other awards. One of my favorite stories to tell is how agent parr saved president Reagan's life, changing the course of history. But also about his own life story. It turns out that part became interested in being a Secret Service agent when, as a child, he watched the 1939 movie code of the Secret Service. The star of the movie, you guessed it, Ronald Reagan. It's one of those great ironies in American history. The man who saved president Reagan's life was inspired by a movie president Reagan made. It's a story I wanted to learn more about and share. Today we're honored to have agent parr's widow Carolyn parr on.

"He is the director of priests for life, father Frank pavone, welcome in studio. Oh, boy, it's a joy to be here, Seth. Thank you so much. I want to introduce everyone who doesn't know who you are or what your organization does, who's maybe tuned in for the first time to understand all the work that you've done and you're doing every single day. We'll get to you the man that momentarily, but let's just roll with that cut. What does it mean to you? What does it mean to America? What does it mean to the Christian world to have an incumbent president address the march for life? You know, Seb, we dreamt about this back. I remember going to the march for life and my one my first one was the third one, 1976. And you were like two years old. But you know, I remember you through the Reagan years, you know, he would call in by phone and NSA, Nelly gray and the marchers, how you doing? And we would stand there literally saying, hey, The White House isn't far from here. Can you imagine if the president came? And like for decades, that was like our dream. What it does is it gives a new level of legitimate. I mean, the movement is legitimate. It stands on its own, obviously. But for a president to be there, says to America this movement has come far. It has come far, it has an impact and it's shaping the nation. And we were also encouraged. As a matter of fact, let me back up and just say, you know, president Donald Trump, of course, you were privileged to work for him. I served on his advisory commissions, both both campaigns, and in the second one, I was the national co chair of what he called pro life voices for Trump. I was so proud to do that. And I was told during the first campaign if he's elected, he'll do everything that passed pro life presidents have done and more. And those words and more echoed through my mind during all the four years of his presidency because he proved them true every

"Kircher with us today is the attorney general of the great state of Arizona, Mark brnovich. Welcome. Thanks, Charlie for having me on. So I can't wait to get into what I call the cartel of the colleges because you have some things that you really want to dive into that your office has been working on about corruption and higher education. Those are my words you can be more precise because you diplomatic? Yeah, that's right. But I don't have to be and I also want to kind of talk about some of the new things your office has released in regards to voter registration material and some other things regarding the Arizona audit and the election. But first, I just want you to introduce yourself to our audience. I think that would be really helpful. Tell us your story how you became, you know, attorney general of Arizona, and also I want to say that attorney general Burnham is running for U.S. Senate, which is a very important Senate race. So please introduce yourself. Well, thank you, Charlie. I always tell folks that if you want to know about me, you probably should know about my background in my history. And so I'm a first generation American, my family fled communism. And when your family has not just studied history but live it lived it, you have this great appreciation for how unique freedom is. And, you know, we know that folks like Ronald Reagan used to talk about freedom is never one more than one generation away from extinction. And, you know, my family live that. And that's why I'm so passionate about the constitution and our liberties. And so much of my career has been spent as I was raised that we have to protect freedom and we have an obligation to give back because this is the greatest country in the world. So, you know, I'm a public school kid. I still live in the same neighborhood. Neighborhood I grew up here in Arizona. I was a gang prosecutor at a law school. In fact, I met my wife there and she's now actually on the federal bench. So, you know, anybody was anything about federal judges. There's an old joke that what's the difference between God and a federal judge? God was wrong once I'm kidding. No, no, no, no. Hey, you're gonna get struck by lightning. Don't be saying that. No, no, God doesn't think he's a federal judge. But anyway, no, she's amazing, but then worked at the AG's office, a bit of federal prosecutor. Served our country in the army reserve. I worked at a think tank called the Goldwater institute where I wrote a lot and wrote briefs on the importance of property rights and individual liberty. And so I had never thought I was going to ever run for any office and I was brought up this real strong sense of that when you're the government, when you can take away people's livelihoods, their life, liberty property. You have to have the most highly qualified, but also the most ethical people in those office and people that understand how much power you have when you're the government.

"Hey this person i've ever. I don't know this person's politics is like well if you don't know their politics republican right because because they they don't dare speak up which is a sad testimony to how nasty people on the on. The left have become where people who are conservatives in hollywood are afraid of being canceled. D platform savaged. If they simply come out and say they're republican and of course the people do in the left doing in the name of tolerance and diversity. It's it's it's just the opposite. Thanks for all these Insights into reagan's career pre-presidential career. There's obviously we can talk about. But what does ronald reagan story and principals half to offer for people in the twenty first century for people that were too young for them. Ronald reagan is somebody they see in a history book but they might don't have the memories with with this history have to offer. Well i think the most moving thing about him he wants said seventy seven is the most important number in my life and that referred to his time as a lifeguard at the rock river in dixon illinois. The nineteen twenties when for seven summers seven days a week working for a few dollars a day and food the for from a concession stand. He was a lifeguard at the rock river in lowell park in dixon illinois and it was there. The reagan saved the lives of seventy seven people. Which is really amazing. I mean i have a lot of students who were lifeguards and they say. Hey dr ken gore. I gotta tell you i never saved anybody ever had to dive in one. Die but but seventy seven people in this. I've been to their river. It's murky dark. The the the the water swirling logs going up and down the river when my guide took me there the first time she'd been a childhood friend. Ronald reagan shot People swam in this and she said yet you believe it. She's a look over here on the side of the beach said no swimming. I said did it look this way. Then she said yeah. It was bibs pretty bad and the the dixon evening telegraph the dixon newspaper. One day reporting the latest save by ronald dutch. Reagan i think it was saved number twenty five or something like that. Nineteen twenty eight one summer in nineteen twenty eight noted that reagan would watch up to a thousand bathers right swimmers at a time in a day. This guy who had to wear glasses and who would dive into this dark water at i. I mentioned this. Richard because his son ron has said this his son mike michael. Reagan has pointed to this others of pointed this out this kind of ingrained in reagan. This sort of lifesaving mentality and bill clark pointed this out as well. It kind of instilled in him this respect for the sanctity and dignity of every human life. You know the idea that every human life was precious in worth fighting for worth saving and from a spiritual point of view. reagan said. This is a difference between us and the soviets. We believe that every individual's made in the image of god and has a soul and thus is eternal in thus every individual is more incomparably important than the state. So so for reagan. He takes that into the nineteen eighties and he believes that it's a righteous cause To to try to win the cold war and liberate all those people behind the iron curtain as putting the evil empire speech in that totalitarian darkness and at a time late seventies when. Nobody believed that you could win the cold war especially peacefully reagan dedicated himself to doing just that and amazingly and i lived through this nineteen eighty nine for all of that to happen. The berlin wall collapsed the final year. Reagan's presidency. It was astonishing astonishing and for it to happen without a missile fired completely peacefully..

"Right somewhere that It might have been in g theater that he played a soviet major. Drying one of the episodes is that true. Yeah yeah that was the episode. Where i think it's the episode at the very end of it. He gives a kind of public message to people watching the show about the revolution. In hungary with hungarian freedom fighters october november nineteen fifty. Six in urges people sent donations to the red cross to different churches. You know to do anything. They can to help the hungarian freedom fighters or actually probably the hungarian refugees at that point because a massive number of hungarian citizens took advantage of the chaos to escape through the iron curtain. When when they could so yeah he he played that at an. Mg theater this was a weekly show and typically it would start where ronald reagan would come out and say hi again everybody. Welcome i'm ronald reagan. Today's episode which will be starring so-and-so-and-so's and so we have and then he would introduce the episode in many of the episodes. Reagan was not just the host introducing the episode. But the actor as well and so in in that show he actually acted and he did many of them as as well. I'm just thinking about this right now. Who else who was the famous actress from the time Loretta young another one. Loretta young was in the christmas movie. The bishop's wife beautiful actress thirties and forties and same kind of path as reagan made major films and then got her loretta young show in the nineteen fifties of i kid. I just took a minute. I can name a dozen off the top of my head. Examples of famous. Hollywood actors and actresses who got their own tv show and that was no demotion. Man that was that was that was a that was a score right. That was a that was a big thumbs up in the case of reagan. It put him on. tv guide. It put him on the cover of tv. That that made reagan a household name..

"I learned this through interviews. You know other sources documentation people actually thought. Richard people actually thought in that in that church in that congregation. That reagan was gonna be not an actor but a minister. A minister Devout he was. He was very very very devout. Everybody knew it. Everybody sought so this view in the nineteen eighties. Well he didn't go to church in the nineteen eighties on regular basis. His wife consulted astrologers his must not be a real christian and this is a bid for the moral majority and the in the fall. Vote right. no it's not true. Re reagan had a very strong faith from the time he was a boy until his death one of the things. I've always been curious about so. It's no secret that president reagan originally was a democrat and so first of all was his family democrat or was it kind of the product of growing up during the fdr era. When it was kind of it was popular to be a democrat later on. He said that famously said that he didn't leave the party. The party left him but at the same time that you know there are. There's a clip of him talking about his support for president truman's policies and and whatnot. So what what happened there. What was the transformation so the family. The family were democrats. It was also. It was the fdr era and reagan was a big fdr democrat. He called himself a haemophiliac. Liberal of bleed a bleeding heart liberal and the fact. This very much reflects Ronald reagan did he so intimately remembered. Fdr's fireside chats and fdr communicating by radio. Which is what. Reagan himself really rebelled and doing his first public job was was working in radio. It in in iowa specifically who Davenport des moines and he started he was a broadcaster for chicago cubs games in the nineteen seventies when he left the governorship of california the first thing he jumped out that he did he got he got a syndicated radio call he wrote all these different syndicated radio columns..

That is if they forgot everything they just criticize them for. The proceeded happen so so. I very kind of objectively as a science major. A science guy. Get the test tubes out right get the scales and read the new york times and read the new republican national review and all these other publications so i spent several years trying to figure out. How did this happen. Went to the reagan library. First time of boy.

"When i was growing up. I remember whenever people mentioned president ronald reagan. They always mentioned that he was an actor and there was always a slight sense of disbelief about it like it was such an unusual thing for a former actor who have risen to the presidency in fact in one of the most iconic moments in the hit nineteen eighty-five movie back to the future doc. Brown reacts incredulously. When hearing that ronald reagan was president in one thousand nine hundred five since he only knew reagan as an actor. Somehow this supposedly b. movie actor ended up becoming president of the united states and changed american politics forever. How did this happen. Our guest today has some insight on that question. He is professor. Paul kanger of grove city college and among other things. He's visiting fellow at the hoover institution on war revolution and peace at stanford university.

"I heard when i was reading this. Somebody podcast say the overwhelming message of the reagan. Charisma that reagan messaging was. You have nothing to be ashamed of. And i thought isn't that the truth and isn't that the tragedy that coming off watergate and vietnam and all these things that we really should have been ashamed of that we should have owned and looked at honestly and needed leadership to help us do that. He sold us a line of crap while hurting as many people in the process as he could and we were ripe for that you know i think that piece of it both helps me understand why we are where we are today. and breaks my heart. I read some of his comments to cpac in one thousand nine hundred five that really put the current political moment in greater relief for me because there are so many times when i think this partisanship this polarization. The lack of civility feels so new and so intense and in a way it is different now. Because when you read about the work that was done on social security the partnership with tip o'neill a lot of those things the compromises that did take place. You think well that could never happen today. But the language there so cpac nineteen eighty five. Reagan says the normal was portrayed as eccentric and only the abnormal was worthy of emulation. The irreverent was celebrated but only irreverence about certain things irreverence towards say organized religion. Yes irreverence toward establishment liberalism too much of that. They celebrated their courage and taking on safe targets and pat each other on the back for slinging stones that it confused goliath. Who was to demoralized and really too good to fight back now. That is a little bit more eloquent than donald trump but it is not that different from donald trump. And that's just. That's it's hard to look at and i think is important to look at. We'll make no mistake. The reason i'm so angry is because i think he was the president. The year we were born he started this massive movement that i feel like has affected every aspect of my life for forty years the nastiness and politics the racism in the republican party. The idea that government is the problem. Something to be slade that it's okay that greed is good. Just all this stuff. And i think it just feels like it's like going back to this. This weird form of terrible nostalgia right but every that this this man has affected my whole life my indefinitely my whole political life and so it's just hard not to be so angry so angry at him. I feel like the best summary for this conversation. That i came across in my research was from professor julian salazar of princeton university. He had a conversation about the reagan legacy with npr in two thousand eleven. And then said there's been a lot of myth making with ronald reagan and like many presidents. We've turned him into something. He wasn't an often remembered politics that didn't exist in the period and use it today for our memory and for political purposes and just snowing that when we have these folks that we hold up and demand to be added to mount rushmore. Whatever that there is a motivation for that and that that motivation is often really divorced from what actually took place while people were governing matters. Will i will be honest. I do feel a little bit better. I feel like anything we can do to more openly and honestly and transparently assess. This man's legacy is a public service and a public good and it definitely makes me feel a little bit better and maybe even a little bit less.

"Payer insured money that we see in two thousand financial crisis that we see in the great recession that we see this hands off approach to the financial industry that was really indirect opposition to so much of the regulation. We saw come through post great depression. There was also a serious farm crisis which has been a back story in my life for a long time right out of college. My dad became a loan officer at a bank that primarily provided farmlands and. He didn't stay in that profession because he had to have so many conversations where people's farms were lost and again that new york times article from nine hundred eighty six described this by saying thousands of families have left their farms. Numerous rural banks have been forced out of business and thousands of other businesses. That deal with farmers have collapsed. The belt debt crisis will shadow midwest states years after the reagan presidency ends. And what's really a lot for me to take in as we did. This research is that. I have known that story about my dad for as long as i can remember and never once associated with reagan never once and i think that is thematic. He just was excellent at his messaging and conveyed so much optimism and growth and prosperity that it's difficult to link him to all of the suffering that unfolded in the early eighties economically. So let me put my cards on the table. As well i grip talking politics with my grandfather and my grandfather hated ronald reagan. He was a farmer and he struggled with a lot of debt and he saw. I think rightly. Ronald reagan coming in to deregulate and open up to the free market. Small family farms in a way that would really decimate them and open them up to foreclosure and bankruptcy and to corporate takeover and now on the way to my see my grandmother. My grandfather passed away several years ago. I see those big corporate farms. I see those signs. And i think about him and i think about what ronald reagan did and what he saw clearly and what a lot of farmers now ronald reagan backed off some of the deregulation when it came to the farm crisis. He responded to a lot of that political pressure. Which again is that theme like. You think he's an ideologue but he will bend pretty quickly when it is politically expedient and i think you see that you see a lot of that with the farm. Crisis is like farm aid and celebrities john mellencamp and these people start to weigh in and it gets more and more press coverage in these heartbreaking stories of families across the country losing their farms. There was there. Were some allowances given. But it wasn't enough. I mean the what people were worried about came true. And i mean i don't think all of this falls at ronald reagan's feet. I think that there were changes in the way farming was happening. Obviously farming post. Great depression looked much different than farming. By the one thousand nine hundred and certainly from farm now became much more efficient. And there's some really complex factors involving exports and global demand and all that played a role. But it's always the sort of like just coldhearted approach to the suffering caused by these policies that sticks out to me and i think we'll see that as we roll through other aspects of reaganomics specifically the reduction in government spending reagan haft the budget for public housing leading to a crisis and homelessness. In one. Thousand nine hundred. He slashed the department of health and human services budget about twenty five percent and refuse to acknowledge the aids crisis which was a huge public health crisis. That i'm sure. The department of health and services could views funding to combat he reduced by eighteen percent federal funding for maternal and child health. There was a massive increase in child. Poverty unintended pregnancy decrease in life expectancy for black and indigenous americans and the government is the problem government is the problem that was the narrative he used to fuel this decimation of funding for these departments. Some of which have almost not recovered even to their nineteen eighty level. Which is something that caught my attention. I think we. I don't even remember what we were researching. But i thought i don't think hood has gotten back to or barely back to its. Nineteen eighty level is important to be precise about this language. That when you talk about reagan and cutting government spending. He didn't cut overall government spending. He grew the size of the government he grew the national debt grew the deficit. He grew the trade deficit enormously. It is just that he cut government social welfare spending so those cuts dramatically contributed to income inequality they produced short term economic success using the traditional metrics that favor people who already have money so there are people who talk about reaganomics still as the gold standard of how we ought to manage the economy but that is a gold standard for managing the economy for a very few people. When you look back at the results of reaganomics what you see is worsening poverty. Worsening hunger works ending homelessness. There are real consequences. And i say this with a whole lot of humility because i have for most of my life believe that rag annuity was doing on the economy and things really were roaring under his presidency to look back at the data on this soberly and understanding that. That's that's just not what happened. And as we look at his domestic policy. I think one of the most relevant pieces is his union busting. Recently i read where the american worker is empowered and a way it hasn't been in decades Do to sort of the great resignation and the changes in the economy. And i thought that's great. That union membership rose. I think in the last year and i think when i started to suggest this topic a long time ago and have been sort of around my head that the union aspect in particular i think is one of the most impactful parts of the reagan presidency in his first year in office after being endorsed by the professional air. Traffic controllers organizations was a big deal for them not to endorse the democrat to endorse the republican nominee. He of course fouls to support them vows to fight for them. I also think it important historical aspect of this is that the professional air traffic controllers were dominated by vietnam veterans. Who'd learned air traffic control in the military and then came home and join this profession it. There's a lot of continuing sort of specialized training those expensive that to get through a really great new yorker article link to about one family's journey in the author's father who was an air traffic controller in and all the train he went through and his journey into this profession and then what happened with the strike so the air traffic controllers begin their negotiations in february. After reagan is elected they begin a strike. It was an illegal strike. No doubt about it. The strike was illegal under current law but really nobody had enforced the law up until that point. Reagan gave them a forty eight hour deadline. Said if you do not come back to work you will be fired. And then he fired eleven thousand three hundred and forty five striking air traffic controllers and ban them from federal service for life and basically opened the floodgates for private employers to do the same. It had an incredible impact on union membership. It had an incredible impact on strikes. I read that in nineteen seventy there over three hundred and eighty major strikes or lockouts by one thousand nine hundred number had dropped to under two hundred in one thousand nine hundred ninety filled a seventeen and in two thousand ten. There were only eleven. The air traffic controllers union was decertified which basically means it was disbanded in destroyed and union membership over the eight years that ronald reagan was in office dropped from twenty percentage of sixteen percent and continue to decrease. He really flipped the story. We were telling ourselves. Americans strikebreakers were bad. He was just he was he made. Everybody stop feeling ashamed for breaking strikes especially in corporate america and really said the strikers..

"We have realized that we've had the chance to think retrospectively about many of the president's who've governed during our lifetimes. We talked a lot about bill. Clinton during the height of the metoo movement we have processed the bush presidency as we have studied nine eleven. We've talked a lot about the obama and trump presidencies in real time. We thought about george h. w. bush's presidency when we read susan pages excellent book about barbara bush but we have not spent anytime on the president of our birth year. Ronald reagan and forty years later seemed like a good chance to think about his two terms as president which was really unusual at the time. He served it as we were doing this research. I learned that as of reagan's presidency only three other. Us presidents had served two full terms in office. Wilson roosevelt and eisenhower and the second term for two of those presidents was really significantly impacted by illness. So it was a big deal for reagan to be in office for two full terms and it certainly had a long lasting impact. Well he also tackled another historical i in his first year in office there was an assassination attempt and he was the first president to survive an assassination attempt at that time. But let's talk about how he got to the white house so ronald reagan had a very traditional midwestern upbringing illinois. He went onto a moderately successful career and movies and radio and tv. He began his transition into politics with several terms as the president of the screen actors. Guild where he fought for residual checks for actors. Which is holly ironic. Considering his later activity around unions. We'll get to that in a minute also. This was the beginning of his very passionate opposition to communism so passionate that during the mccarthy era he served as an fbi informant during his time at the screen actors guild and would turn in his phil actors as communist sympathizers. And of course the most interesting part about all this is he was a democrat. Almost this entire time. He rose to prominence in nineteen sixty four. He gave a speech called a time for choosing in support of barry goldwater campaign and it really made goldwater who was pretty radical more palatable. To lots of people and folks were very impressed with his charisma. It was one of the most successful political speeches launching a career that had happened at that point another theme ronald reagan. Chris another theme. We're at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind and his longtime from the swamp to the stars. And it's been said if we lose that war and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent. It's happening but i think it's time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the founding fathers not too long ago to friends of mine. We're talking to cuban refugee a businessman who had escaped from castro and in the midst of his story. One of my friends turn to the other instead. We don't know how lucky we are. And the cuban stopped and said how lucky you are. I had some place to escape to and then that sentence he told us the entire story if we lose freedom here. There's no place to escape to. This is the last stand on her and this idea. That government is beholden to the people that it has no other source of power except the sovereign. People is still the newest and the most unique. Id and all the long history of man's relation to man and so he was drafted to run for the governorship of california. He ran basically on two ideas. One was this sort of personal responsibility that he would just cement into the republican legacy and he would cement that personal responsibility idea by talking about wh as he termed them welfare bums and then he also ran almost directly against the university of california at berkeley and talked about how it was the site of this sort of anti war. Anti-capitalist anti hetero normative way of living and so with those two premises. He took on an incumbent governor of california. who really thought. Reagan would be pretty easy to beat and reagan won by almost a million votes so he served two terms as the governor of california he then ran against gerald ford from the republican nomination in one thousand nine hundred seventy six and really got beat by the moderate wing of the republican party. Gerald ford obviously won the nomination and then he ran again for the republican nomination in nineteen eighty which he won and then ran against an incumbent. President jimmy carter another fame. Somebody who thought he would be easy to be but he won it carrying four t four states and receiving four hundred eighty nine electoral votes to carter's forty nine. I think we should talk for a second about the conditions that allowed that to happen. america was pretty demoralized. When ronald reagan ran for president we had come out of vietnam. We had the iran hostage crisis. We were struggling economically. Obviously watergate watergate was on. Everyone's minds there was just a lot in the national psyche and we didn't really use words like national psyche at that point To talk about what everybody was dealing with and the consistent theme especially from all of the newspaper pieces that i read from this actual period not people looking back but at that time. You just see this theme. That reagan made people feel good. He just campaigned. On this sense. Of strength and optimism and democracy is going to prevail over the evil communist there was a simplicity to his messaging and and it was what people wanted to hear and it was so different than the really complex realities and circumstances they were otherwise facing yeah. I think that's really important. I think the other really important part of this puzzle is you just. Can't underestimate how different jimmy carter was president and as a politician i was listening to some coverage about his time as president in a diary entry where they were saying to name one hundred fifty judges to the federal bench and he was like. That's too much power. I shouldn't be doing that. Like he was like allergic to power and he was certainly allergic to politics. And the sort of like dirty politics that ronald reagan and the republican party at that point was leaning all the way into they had learned from president. Nixon southern strategy. That sort of the dog whistles to the racist south was a winning strategy. I mean he launched his campaign for president in one thousand nine hundred and the show mccown fair in philadelphia mississippi which was the site of the nineteen sixty four murders of three civil rights. Workers spoke about states rights. He was endorsed by the kooks clan when he ran in one. Thousand nine hundred. So i think that you know it was this. It feels like to me when i look back at that electoral blow out that. It wasn't in much the same way. Donald trump's electoral victory was about trump was about the circumstances surrounding them. And somebody willing to exploit them. I feel like jimmy. Carter brought a knife to a gunfight when this electoral campaign and it shows in that in the way the electoral votes were handed out. So let's talk about the reagan legacy and we're going to try to move through this very quickly but it's a lot y'all he was just an extremely consequential president. I shared an article for folks on social media to take a look at before this episode from the new york times written in nineteen eighty six so talking about his legacy while he was still in office and at that time. There was this constant comparison of reagan to fdr in the opposite direction. He remade government almost as much as consequentially as fdr had so. Let's start with the economics. Do think your point of like where america was was important right. I mean it was a there were high interest rates. there were high tax rates. There was high unemployment. there was a economic malays without a doubt so reagan rolls into town and he has some very distinctive economic policies that are vastly different than the fdr approach that the united states was.

"Ronald reagan. Ironically reagan would later say that it was quote. The worst picture i ever made and that quote never has an egg of such dimensions been laid the next opportunity. Reagan hats project strength came when the professional air traffic controllers organization known as pat co went on strike on august third nineteen eighty one. Thirteen thousand controllers walked out after talks with the faa fell apart. They had sought a wage increase and a reduction of their work week. Seven thousand flights were cancelled due to the strike. A nightmare coming during the peak of summer travel season in hundred fifty five congress passed a law. Making these kinds of strikes illegal at the supreme court upheld the law in nineteen seventy-one despite the fact that pat co-head endorsed reagan in nineteen eighty. He ordered the controllers to get back to work in the interests of national safety when most of them refused he fired them. He then ban the strikers from being rehired ever again in october of that year the federal labor relations authority decertified. Petco reagan the former union leader had broken the air traffic controllers union in addition to his shows of strength. Reagan employed psychological measures against soviets state department historian james. Graham wilson wrote that. Reagan had the us air force and navy sent fighters and bombers to probe the soviet defense perimeter according to strategic air command. General jack chain quote we would send bombers over the north poles and radars. Speaking of soviet radars would click on other times. Fighter-bombers would probe. they're asian or european periphery. Wilson quotes one under secretary of state. Who said of the flights quote it really got to them. They didn't know what it all meant. A squadron would straight at soviet airspace and their radars with light up and units would go on alert then at last minute the squadron would peel off and return home. The reagan administration did face setbacks. Sometimes grievous ones in august of nineteen eighty two. Reagan sent about fourteen hundred marines to join a multinational force in lebanon as you might recall from a previous episode. President eisenhower had sent forces to lebanon back. In one thousand nine hundred eighty eight upon invitation from the government in beirut to restore order. The mission was a success. So there is precedent for the deployment. This time israel and the palestinian liberation organization had been fighting and when a ceasefire was forged. The multinational force was sent to enforce. Things seem to be going well. But in april of nineteen eighty three a car bomb exploded at the us embassy in west. Beirut killing sixty three people including seventeen americans and then on october twenty third. Nineteen eighty-three a truck. Packed with twelve thousand. Pounds of explosives crashed into the front gates of the us marine barracks in beirut. The explosion destroyed the foundation of the building causing it to collapse. Two hundred forty-one marines and sailors were killed the greatest number of us marines lost since the battle of iwo jima in world war two hezbollah a lebanese terrorist group was later implicated in the attack. There were indications that iran and syria were involved the. Us was stunned by what had happened. Reagan called it a quote despicable act and his administration promised to stay the course. keep the force in lebanon. There was talk within the administration to respond to the attack. But congressional support for the mission began to wane. Within four months february nineteen eighty-four the marines had fully withdrawn from lebanon. It was likely the wise thing to do preventing the united states from getting bogged down in a conflict in the middle east. Especially in light of reagan's plans to take on the soviet union. America was reeling from the beirut bombings but another crisis in a different part of the world gave reagan a chance to reassert. american power. Grenada is a small island country in the caribbean. For centuries it was part of the british empire and obtained independence in nineteen seventy four. The remained part of the british commonwealth. And still is today. In march of nineteen seventy-nine a marxist leninist movement in the country called the new jewel movement overthrew the government and established a new regime under man named maurice bishop after taking office bishop established relations. With castro's cuba also built an airport with help from international consultants including some who came from cuba president. Reagan believed that this was a cover for building an airstrip that could be used by the soviets. Remember at this time. The soviets in cuba were supporting marxist movements around the world including in central american countries like el salvador nicaragua cubans were said to have been involved in the building of the airport. Reagan's critics to this day however argue that there's no evidence to support that claim now while bishop had relations with the soviet union. He also wanted to keep grenada. Non-aligned some say he was also moving toward more moderate economic policies hoping to attract foreign investment and bishops supporters. Point to his efforts to grant greater equality to women the policies that help the poor and improve literacy but at the same time bishop banned all other political parties elections and free expression bishops government also established the people's revolutionary army which some said committed human rights violations against the populace at any rate bishops government broke into factions and one of them was led by a man named bernard cord a politician part of the new jewel movement. He had actually studied in the united states. At one point as well as england and had been involved in communist parties in both countries cords faction wanted bishop to step down or allow them to have a greater say over government when bishop refused cords group launched a coup of their own and had bishop placed under house arrest when that happened. Chaos erupted and demonstrations broke out across the country. Bishop actually managed to escape for a time but court had the army recapture and then execute him in the midst of the chaos. A military official named hudson austin sees power and installed military rule. The new government was seen as more pro-communist than the more moderate government under bishop it imposed a total curfew for four days with orders to shoot anyone on site. Who violated it. The governor general of grenada. Paul schoon secretly requested that. The united states interven- schoon also found himself placed under house arrest organization of east caribbean states. As well as barbados and jamaica also asked the united states to help restore order. Reagan complied and also cited the presence of american citizens on the island and the fear that if american hostages were taken it would turn into a similar situation that president carter faced in iran on october. Twenty fifth nineteen eighty three two days after the deadly marine barracks bombings in lebanon. United states commenced operation. Urgent fury and invaded grenada. A little over seven thousand americans would serve in the operation consisting of men and women. From the army's first and second ranger battalions the delta force in the eighty second airborne division as well as the marines and the navy seals. The rangers led an airborne assault on the southern tip of the island while the marines landed at the northern tip in a televised speech to.

"A radio address. Reagan said quote. One thing is certain. The threat of hunger to the russian people is due to the soviet obsession with military power. Nothing proves the failure of marxism more than the soviet union's inability to produce weapons for its military ambitions and at the same time provide for their people's everyday needs in nineteen seventy six. Reagan said quote the russians know. They can't match us industrially or technologically during another radio address in the seventies. Reagan talked about reaching out to soviet citizens saying we quote could have an unexpected ally if citizen ivan is becoming discontented enough to start talking back. Maybe we should drop a few million. Typical mail order cadillacs on minks and pinks in moscow to wet their appetites. Reagan seem to be saying that those millions of people behind the iron curtain might be coaxed into rising up against their oppressors. If they knew just how bad they had it and how much better democracy and capitalism could be in nineteen eighty. Reagan gave an interview where he said quote they know that if we turned our full industrial might into an arms race they cannot keep pace with us. Why haven't we played that card. According to ronald reagan's close aide and his first national security advisor. Richard alan reagan told him in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven quote. My idea of american policy toward the soviet union is simple and some would say simplistic it is this we win and they lose their those who believe that. Richard alan was telling the truth. And those who believe that. He was. Exaggerating reagan's role as a mastermind who orchestrated the end of the cold war regardless of what one believes. It's clear that reagan believed in something that few experts did that. The soviet union was weak and was at risk of collapsing in his first year. In office reagan repeatedly spoke of some sort of end to soviet communism at a commencement address in notre dame in may nineteen eighty one. Reagan said the following the years. The years ahead are great ones for this country. The cause of freedom and the spread of civilization the west won't contain communism.

"Now who's great side story about. How the tax get signed. Reagan had announced to his staff early in his presidency that every august he would be at the ranch and mike beaver. Who was in charge of the schedule and was very close to nancy. Also had been communications director as a governor candidate. Deaver said you can't leave for entire month and reagan said well. You know you'd better figure out what you're gonna do at the ranch. Because i'm going to the ranch because if i go to the ranch one month out of every year the next eight years i will live longer and if i don't i won't live long. So this is a matter of life and death albie at the ranch. You figure out what we can do at the ranch. That may snooze so reagan up at the reagan ranch is set up the stable outside. It's very rustic and reagan is there and gives a little talk and signs the tax cuts and it is extraordinarily moment because reagan had fundamentally changed the underlying economic nature of our miracle is gonna operate. He had moved us from a demand. Side which didn't increase manufacturing didn't increase investments didn't increase productivity to a supply side which said if we do all those things if we have more factories if we have more productivity if we have more production than prices will go down by the way something which was proven with gasoline and oil. I actually did. A book called gasoline in two dollars and fifty cents which barack obama attack because it violated the liberal model that gasoline had to permanently. Go up and the fact is that you have a demand side supply-side fight over oil and gas and it turns out that if you emphasize the supply side to shear production crashes the price so if you want inexpensive gasoline maximize production if you focus on demand and you try to get the maximum of people buying gasoline. You guarantee that prices are going to go up so we were in a situation. In august of nineteen eighty-one where reagan is shifting the country and what he's doing is he saying one. I'm gonna totally support. Paul volcker i was frankly the other side because i knew this is going to cost a seats. Which did cost us. Twenty nine seats in the house in nineteen eighty-two because we're a deep recession thanks to paul volcker but reagan's point was very much like that thatcher you have to break the back of inflation period. Well inflation when he took office was thirteen and a half percent when he left office. Eight years later it was four point eight two percent and kept by the way going down so you had a growing economy. With a declining inflation rate. People had more real money in their pockets. Their purchasing power was going up and reagan was prepared to take the pain as a matter of policy and support volker in this very tough program at the same time because he had deregulation in a big way in cut the federal bureaucracy and dramatically reduced the amount of burden small businesses and manufacturers to carry. You began to get a program where people thought. America was the right place to invest. So you had a growing economy despite the high interest rates and by nineteen eighty-four. It was doing well enough. That reagan could campaign on the slogan morning in america. Now the gap between the malays of jimmy carter and four years later morning in america with ronald reagan was in many ways. A function of supply side economics and the impact of the reagan. Tax cut was a remarkable achievement was both an economic revolution and intellectual revolution and a political revolution. The tax cuts included an accelerated cost recovery system which accelerated depreciation tax reductions. Some of the men was you bought a new piece of equipment. You could write it off faster so you could buy another new piece because the equipment was changing technology every couple years next the individual tax brackets with a twenty three percent cut in individual tax rates. So you're out here working hard all of a sudden you got much more money in your pocket. Which in visors you to save to invest to be involved. The top tax rate was cut from seventy to fifty over a three year period. Well again remember. The federal tax also has a state tax on top of it. So if you're in a state that has a high tax bracket new york california being good examples connecticut illinois and you start at seventy percent and then you add the state taxes in really gets to be expensive so the lowest tax rate was cut from fourteen to eleven the real estate tax exemption increased to six hundred thousand dollars from one hundred and seventy five to promote capital cost recovery. In other words they wanted people to be able to sell a house or sell a factory or sell a building and keep most of it. So you begin to create modernisation. It'd be on to create an incentive to go out and look for new better more modern every working taxpayer was allowed to establish individual retirement accounts and it was a step to increase savings if you look today. The actual assets and individual retirement accounts total twelve point six trillion dollars at the end of the first quarter of two thousand twenty one now think about that twelfth trillion six hundred billion dollars that people have that belongs to them. It's astonishing over generation. How many people has an ira and it's astonishing. How much money has been saved. And put back into the system. In order to accelerate economic growth because people had a real senate those ten percent exclusion on income for two earner married couples up to three thousand dollars of exclusion. I was put in to offset the fact that we actually were charging you more if you were married than if you are single people those taxation windfall profits and that was reduced. There was a reduction in the capital gains tax from twenty eight to twenty. And i'm very proud of the fact that the house. Republicans speaker asked the largest capital gains cut in american history. When you cut capital gains tax you dramatically increase investment. You increase economic growth. You modernized the economy. You make it easy for us to compete with china. Two very important thing. The most people don't fully appreciate but capital gains as was once said years and years ago by alan greenspan chairman federal reserve. The ideal would be zero because it creates so much economic growth. It took until nineteen eighty-three for the economy to turn around because of the volcker enormous increase in interest rates. But starting in one thousand nine hundred three the economy began to roll and in many ways up until the bush collapse.

Ronald reagan had only one friend and that friend was nancy and it seemed like he. I know people like this. Who just conservative. Only focus someone other human being in their life and that definitely seems to be the case and like you said at the beginning. There's a reason why you call this. The reagans and i wanna talk about nancy. Because she's actually a fascinating figure and in my mind after watching your series. I feel like might have been the most influential first lady potentially in politics her and her shoulder so talk about. What did you know about that relationship and influence going in.

"Incorrect the mythology of the reagans as. I've seen it so when you talk about the math. Which i think is true. Tell people what you mean by the mess. The reagan misses that he was the greatest patriots and the greatest president of all time and got everything he did was Perfect in unimpeachable Literally and figuratively in some cases. And this kind of grandfatherly image. That's grown up around him and the republican party. I think has really taken reagan as their brand now. This is all of course until trump because trump swallowed the republican party hole but a law of the foundations. That trump has built his brand on really Don't buy the reagans and that was the other part of my mission which is to connect the dots show. The past is really prologue for the trump era and another aspect of the miss. I thought needed correcting was that among people who became never trump republicans. Kind of what. You call the ray in wing of the republican party. It's still very acceptable and really encouraged to hold reagan up as the party that we need to get back to but there were many many flaws in reaganism annan reagan the politician and the president and those have all gotten white washed out brush out. I guess it'd be a better term. And i think you really need to look at facts. And there's been such a tending of the reagan myth in the post presidency. I think the strongest efforts of any post-presidency among the coalition of true believers Attached to the reagan mass. And the reagan's in their lifetime were niff- makers and very good at it. And i think you can attribute a lot of this distortion of the reagan. Reality to both their own efforts and these berry passionate keepers of the flame. I believe that the keepers of the flame. Have a particular motive. Which is that reagan. Was a master fall dog. Whistle racist and Laverdure of grievance politics which is a very successful formula for the republican party. He got away with it because he was such a great presenter of his message and was so clever way he did it. And the reagan tax cuts and the suite of government reforms and restructuring programs. That weren't acted in the reagan. Eighties really.
