Video: The Campaign Speech That Elected Reagan

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016

In early September, 1980, Ronald Reagan came to Dallas to deliver a speech to 15,000 Christians at Reunion Arena (since torn down). It was the final session of the National Affairs Briefing Conference. All three presidential candidates were asked to speak: Reagan, Carter, and Anderson (lest we forget). Only Reagan accepted. For three days before […]

Conspiracy Theories and Paralysis

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016

I am a conspiracy theorist. I have been since 1958, when I began to research the question of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. I have never accepted the official explanation that the government had no advance warning of the attack. I was the only conspiracy theorist I knew of while a graduate student in […]

Church Deacons vs. the Welfare State

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016

When those of us who reject the idea of the welfare state make our case against state-funded wealth-redistribution, someone will say: “What are you doing to help the poor?” It’s a legitimate question, even if asked rhetorically? Why? Because you can’t beat something with nothing. There will come a day when the welfare state will […]

Bribery and Judgment

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016

And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous (Ex. 23:8). ┬áThe context of this law is judgment rendered in a court. Judges are not to render false judgment in favor of a poor man (v. 3) or against him (v. 6). People are not […]

So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him. And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my […]

One Day at the Top: Robert Hernandez, 1958

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016

I have wanted to tell this story for a long time. I was cleaning out a box of memorabilia. I don’t have much. Now I have less: about a 4-inch stack of magazines. I came across a publication the size of a magazine, Southern California Football 1958. It covered high schools mostly, with a few […]

Dallas Murders and a Gun Control Vote

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016

Paul Ryan had planned a vote on limiting suspected terrorists’ access to legal guns. This was correctly perceived by second amendment supporters as a sell-out. A list that bars suspected terrorists from flying on a commercial airplane is inherently unconstitutional in the first place. Either the government arrests a suspected terrorist and tries him in […]

Video: China’s Forced Organ Harvesting

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016

Here is a story that deserves more attention. The estimate: 100,000 people a year “donate” their vital organs. Then they lose vitality, such as heartbeats. They don’t get paid. This is Communism. People do this for the sake of the cause, it says here. There is a book on this: Bloody Harvest. It was published […]

How to Write Like Thomas Jefferson

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016

The Declaration was an exercise in rhetoric: verbal persuasion. He had to persuade at least half a dozen different audiences. Until a student identifies all of them, he will not understand the Declaration. Yet this is rarely taught, even at the upper division college level. You have to know what he was trying to do. […]
