It's not enough to be right, these days—especially when you're not left. To survive, the right must learn how to express nonliberal principles as effectively as possible, and persuade others of their point of view. It is an art that demands patience, research, humor, understanding, creative thinking, learning from your opponent and even mimicking their tactics.
In How to Be Right, Greg Gutfeld reveals the strategies that have helped him keep a steady job for almost three decades.  From “Discard Your Outrage” and “Outcompassion Them” To “Find the Right’s Obama” and “Use your Mom,” Gutfeld gives readers the tools they’ll need to argue, influence, and convince their friends, family and foes throughout the 2016 election cycle.

Greg Gutfeld currently serves as the host of The Greg Gutfeld Show and co-host of The Five on Fox News Channel.  He’s also the New York Times bestseller of The Joy of Hate and Not Cool.

Honoring Our Veterans
Friday, November 20, 2015

6:00 p.m.

I can think of no one who is better suited, has more experience, or is able to relay a more inspiring story than you. Our own personal relationship began when you returned from Vietnam and I have treasured that friendship every day since..”
– Nancy Reagan, in a letter to Senator McCain

In honor of the The Wall That Heals at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, Senator John McCain will deliver remarks about his experience in Vietnam. Tickets for the event are $54 per person and include a buffet dinner following the lecture.

On October 26, 1967, during John McCain’s 23rd bombing mission over North Vietnam, a surface-to-air missile struck his plane and forced him to eject, knocking him unconscious and breaking both his arms and his leg. After parachute landing in Truc Bach Lakein Hanoi, Navy Flier McCain was taken as a Prisoner of War (POW) into the now-infamous “Hanoi Hilton,” where he was denied needed medical treatment and subjected to years of torture by the North Vietnamese. Aided by his faith and the strength of his fellow POWs, John McCain regained his health, and was finally released after five and a half years, on March 14, 1973. He retired from the Navy in 1981. His military honors include the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart, and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

John McCain has served as the United States Senator for Arizona since January of 1987.

Register for the event.
