This week marks the 20th anniversary of 9-11. Nothing sums up why we should remember this day more than the words President Reagan spoke in Pointe du Hoc, France while commemorating D-Day:
“Here…let us make a vow to the dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Let our actions say…I will not fail thee nor forsake thee.’ Strengthened by their courage, heartened by their valor, and borne by their memory, let us continue to stand for the ideals for which they lived and died.”
As a way to honor the memory of those that lost their lives, we are going to spend this podcast listening to some of the “America Supports You 9-11 Freedom Walks” that the Reagan Library held.

In this week’s Reagan Forum podcast, we go back to our August 14, 2021 in-person program with top rated Talk radio host and bestselling author Mark Levin for a conversation on his latest book, American Marxism. Mark Levin is a very busy man. In addition to hosting one of the top rated daily radio shows, he hosts Fox News’ “Life, Liberty and Levin” every Sunday, LevinTV on CRTV daily, and each of his books quickly hit the bestsellers list. While at the Reagan Library, Mark was joined in conversation by Reagan Foundation and Institute executive director John Heubusch to discuss how the core elements of Marxist ideology are now pervasive in American society and culture—from our schools, the press, and corporations, to Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the Biden presidency—and how it is often cloaked in deceptive labels like “progressivism,” “democratic socialism,” “social activism,” and more. During the conversation, Mark exposes many of the institutions, intellectuals, scholars, and activists who are leading this revolution, and provides us with some answers and ideas on how to confront them.
In this week’s Reagan Forum podcast we go to an in-person program with conservative talk radio host and bestselling author Michael Medved. Although we had held in-person events at the Reagan Library since reopening our doors after the COVID closure, this was our first book signing event. Michael Medved is quite the scholar. He started Yale at the age of 16 and wrote his first book – a bestseller – at 26. He started out in life as a democrat, officially joining the conservative movement in his mid to late 20s. His book, “Right Turns,” tells the story of his transformation from what he calls “punk liberal activist to lovable conservative curmudgeon.” In 2017 Michael came to the Reagan Library for a program and book signing on his book, “The American Miracle.” In 2019 he released the second book in the series entitled, “God’s Hand on America: Divine Providence in the Modern Era.” The two books focus on “accidents, bizarre coincidences and flat-out miracles that shape America’s Destiny.” He joined us at the Library on July 14, 2021 to discuss “God’s Hand on America.”
In this week’s Reagan Forum podcast we go back to July 8, 2021 for our virtual conversation with bestselling author and former MSMBC Hardball host Chris Matthews. Chris Matthews has been following American politics since the first Eisenhower campaign. Following two post-college years in the Peace Corps, Chris served on several staffs on Capitol Hill. He traveled down Pennsylvania Avenue to serve as a White House speechwriter to President Carter before returning to the Hill as a senior aide to House Speaker Tip O’Neill. That means that Chris saw up close the defining friendships of American history… the friendship of Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill. In the late 1980s, Chris switched to full-time journalism, serving as Washington Bureau Chief for the San Francisco Examiner and then beginning his career on television in 1994. In all the years Chris has been involved in the country’s public life he’s kept an abiding faith in electoral politics, his quadrennial hope that the American people will make the best judgment on who should lead. He has kept that faith through war and peace, good times and bad, through great leaders and not-so-great. He has never lost his vigorous love of democracy and how it can serve to make this country, through all its challenges, a more perfect union. Chris Matthews was joined in conversation with Reagan Foundation and Institute executive director John Heubusch to discuss his brand-new book, This Country: My Life in Politics and History, a sweeping memoir of American politics and history.
