Reagan Forum with Dr. Steven Hayward
Monday, October 27, 2014

Fifty years ago, journalist David Broder described Ronald Reagan’s speech on behalf of presidential candidate Barry Goldwater as “the most successful political debut since William Jennings Bryan.” The speech, entitled “A Time for Choosing,” would echo in American politics for 50 years, defining a new approach to conservatism laced with a forward looking optimism rooted in the latent greatness of America.

Steven F. Hayward, the Ronald Reagan Professor of Public Policy at Pepperdine, will explore the impact of “the Speech” and its current relevance to American politics when he delivers the Reagan Forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Monday, October 27, 2014 at 11:00a.m. This lecture is free to attend; however, reservations are required.

For the last decade he was the F.K. Weyerhaeuser Fellow in Law and Economics at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., and a Senior Fellow at the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco.

Hayward writes daily on the popular PowerLineBlog.com, and frequently serves as a guest host for Bill Bennett’s national radio show “Morning in America” on the Salem Broadcasting Network. Hayward is the author of a two-volume narrative history of Ronald Reagan and his effect on American
political life, The Age of Reagan: The Fall of the Old Liberal Order, 1964-1980, and The Age of Reagan: The Conservative Counter-Revolution, 1980- 1989 (CrownForum books).

RNDF MISSION

The Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF) brings together leaders and key stakeholders in the defense community – including, members of Congress, civilian officials and military leaders from the Defense Department and industry – to address the health of our national defense and stimulate a discussion that promotes policies that strengthen the US military in the future. In an era of fiscal austerity where the threats to our national security are increasing in number and complexity, the RNDF will allow senior leaders from the defense community to come together with viewpoints on how best to deal with it. Though President Reagan left office many years ago, the United States military continues to benefit from his commitment and vision for a strong military. Recognizing that today’s decisions will affect the military’s capabilities for years to come, RNDF charges leaders from current and past Administrations and Congress to look beyond the immediate issues facing the military and explore how we can build peace through strength for American Security.

Reagan Forum with Mike Huckabee
Thursday, November 20, 2014

Lecture 6:00 p.m.
Dinner 7:00 p.m.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will be conducting a 10-day tour entitled, “Reagan, Thatcher, Pope John Paul II: God Raising Extraordinary Leaders for Extraordinary Times” which will conclude at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Thursday, November 20, 2014.

Of the tour, Governor Huckabee said, “Three remarkable leaders, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II were the human instruments God used to change the course of all world history. None of them were qualified according to the press and political pundits or professional critics but rooted in their unshakable beliefs, they rose to become prophetic voices for freedom and opportunity.”

Governor Huckabee will discuss how the historical, social and spiritual forces shaped President Reagan, Prime Minister Thatcher and Pope John Paul II’s leadership to become the world influencers as they are recorded in history. In addition, Governor Huckabee will speak about how the fall of communism, the restoration of economic freedom and the spiritual renewal of cultures took place during the course of these leaders’ lives.

Governor Huckabee was the 44th Governor of Arkansas, becoming one of the longest serving Governors in his state’s history. He is also a former Republican presidential candidate and a Southern Baptist pastor. He is currently the host of the number one rated weekend show “Huckabee” on Fox News Channel.
