A new Words to Live By Podcast will be posted every Tuesday. 1400 1400 America the Beautiful at Fudan University China’s activities of late – showing off their military muscle after Speaker Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan – are top of mind and call us to review the President’s objective when he visited China in 1984, and that’s by spreading the good news about democracy, particularly to students. We thought our listeners might be interested in his truly beautiful speech delivered to college students in China at Fudan University in 1984. In the first half of the podcast, we’ll cover a few excerpts from the speech in China and in the second half, we’ll be inspired by hearing his heartfelt description about everything that’s great about America at Fudan University. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/america-the-beautiful-at-fudan-university/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 56295 Tue, 20 Sep 2022 00:00:00 -0700 20:16 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no To Taiwan or Not To Taiwan? That is the Question In August this year, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made a somewhat controversial visit to Taiwan, making her the highest ranking US official to visit the island in 25 years. In the lead up to the trip, President Biden told reporters that the military “thinks its not a good idea’ to visit Taiwan due to rising tensions over the island’s status – also further complicated as the Biden administration has urged China not to back Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. So, what would Ronald Reagan do? We don’t know but we can tell you what he said in an interview with journalists before he left for his trip to China in the spring of 1984. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/to-taiwan-or-not-to-taiwan-that-is-the-question/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 56261 Tue, 13 Sep 2022 00:00:00 -0700 23:03 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The Tonight Show 1975 In Ronald Reagan’s lifetime, he made numerous appearances on the Tonight Show hosted by Johnny Carson, and as you can imagine they’re not only entertaining but fascinating. As an actor, he knew how to charm and communicate – but as a politician, he knew that an opportunity to clarify his ideas on a national basis was rare, so these interviews with Carson provided a platform for doing just that – thoughtfully, carefully, and casually, explaining just what he believed in. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-tonight-show-1975/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 56195 Tue, 06 Sep 2022 00:00:00 -0700 30:10 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The Personal Side So we thought we’d dedicate this podcast to the personal side of our 40th president who was described as an ordinary man who accomplished extraordinary things. Ronald Reagan often credited his political success to an empathy with ordinary Americans. Asked by a reporter on the eve of his election in 1980 what Americans saw in him, Reagan replied: "Would you laugh if I told you that I think, maybe, they see themselves, and that I'm one of them? I've never been able to detach myself or think that I, somehow, am apart from them." Even after two terms as president, Reagan called himself a "citizen-politician," the phrase he often used to describe himself in 1966 when he was elected governor of California in his first race for public office. Reagan said he wanted to become part of government in order to reduce its influence. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-personal-side/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 56144 Tue, 30 Aug 2022 00:00:00 -0700 25:13 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The Soviets Ronald Reagan was a loving guy – he never hated anyone, except, maybe two things: Communism and Liars. In his mind, the two were definitely intertwined. And, as we observe Putin’s assault on Ukraine, it’s the same old Soviet tune – one that says “we’re for peace” and oh by the way, just ignore the tanks invading your country, we’re hunting for nazis. No one believes them. And Reagan didn’t drink the Soviet Kool-Aid, either. There’s one Town Hall that he conducted in 1987 in California at the Century Plaza Hotel with transmission also on the East Coast AND supposedly in the Soviet Union. The Chautauqua Institution in upstate New York had, since 1984, sponsored a week of debate between Soviet and American scholars and officials and August 1987 was no exception. To put the time frame in perspective, by August 1987, Gorbachev had been General Secretary for about 2 ½ years. Two summits – one in Geneva and one in Reykjavik - had taken place with the signing of the historic INF Treating looming in four months, in December of the same year. We love this town hall and we’ll focus on it in this podcast. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-soviets/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 56088 Tue, 23 Aug 2022 00:00:00 -0700 28:43 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The Middle East Forty years ago this month, President Reagan responded to the crisis in the middle east by announcing the deployment of American forces as part of a multinational peacekeeping force. This will prompt a more interesting discussion for this podcast, of the rules of engagement, which President Reagan asked to be reviewed after the bombing of the US Marine barracks October 23, 1983 which killed a significant part of our peacekeeping force, taking the lives of 241 American soldiers as they slept. The president said it was the saddest day of his presidency, perhaps the saddest day of his life. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-middle-east/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 56039 Tue, 16 Aug 2022 00:00:00 -0700 21:00 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Welfare Reform Recall that Governor Reagan began his first term as a novice who promised to squeeze, cut and trim the costs of government. By 1971, he was an experienced politician with an able finance director in Verne Orr and a competent chief of staff in Ed Meese. So they got to work. And in a sweeping welfare reform program, Governor Reagan stiffened penalties for fraud, removed employed recipients from welfare, and required adult children to help support their parents on welfare, among other changes. By 1974, welfare caseloads dropped 20 percent, benefits rose 43 percent for residents with no income, welfare fraud cropped and California saved hundreds of millions of dollars. Reagan, as governor and as president always struggled with the idea of welfare because, as he said, “the principal issue in any welfare reform proposal is whether or not it'll help people become self-sufficient and lead a full life or keep them in a state of dependency.” It’s a question Americans struggle with to this day and Reagan, after leaving Sacramento and before the White House, delivered several radio addresses on the subject. So in today’s podcast, we’ll listen to a few good ones and let him tell the story. Let’s start with December 1976. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/welfare-reform/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55994 Tue, 09 Aug 2022 00:00:00 -0700 17:27 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Grain, Soviets, and Farmers So let’s take a look at some current news on grain and the Ukraine. It’s been reported that Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the United Nations are due to sign a deal aimed at resuming Black Sea grain exports from Ukraine, which have been severely hampered by the war there. Russia's Feb. 24 invasion has stalled exports from Ukraine's ports, leaving dozens of ships stranded and some 20 million tons of grain stuck in silos at Odessa. Moscow has denied responsibility for worsening the food crisis, blaming instead a chilling effect from Western sanctions for slowing its own food and fertilizer exports and Ukraine for mining its Black Sea ports. However, in July 2022, drone footage revealed that Russia was setting Ukrainian wheat fields on fire, thus putting a massive strain on the country's grain exports. Those battered and harassed Ukrainian farmers are racing to save their crops from Russian shell strikes. So, here we go again playing the grain game. Let’s go back 40 years ago to August 1982, when the Russian grain embargo had just been lifted and President Reagan worked to help the American farmer. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/grain-soviets-and-farmers/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55954 Tue, 02 Aug 2022 00:00:00 -0700 20:10 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The President's News Conference Today’s subject? The Presidential Press Conference. We’re going to cover his July 1982 press conference which President Reagan noted in his diary that…went well – after feeling less than pleased about previous press conference. When and why did this tradition start? Since Woodrow Wilson held the first presidential press conference in March 1913, all of his successors have used the sessions as a basic part of their publicity strategies. The sessions have survived because reporters found them useful for developing information, citizens saw them as valuable for making judgments about their chief executives, and presidents and their staffs saw them as a primary strategy for explaining their policies. Of course, presidents could give speeches laying out their policies, but press conferences have become a major way to explain the intricacies of those policies as the proposals made their way through the legislative process. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-presidents-news-conference/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55813 Tue, 26 Jul 2022 00:00:00 -0700 20:23 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Captive Nations and Ukraine In light of the war in Ukraine, we thought that looking back to Ronald Reagan’s ideas on human rights and the captive nations might be pertinent. Going back to 1975, Ronald Reagan opposed President Gerald Ford’s signing of the final act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe – known as the Helsinki Accords on August 1, 1975. Why, you ask? Well, he objected on the ground that it codified the captive nation status of Eastern Europe; that the Soviet Union and other communist states routinely violate human rights; and once again, that such states cannot be trusted to honor agreements. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/captive-nations-and-ukraine/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55772 Tue, 19 Jul 2022 00:00:00 -0700 14:46 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Harley-Davidson and Free Trade About 40 years ago, President Ronald Reagan took bold steps to protect a storied U.S. manufacturing company from foreign competitors. At the time, challenges in international trade, specifically, how to deal with the flood of Japanese car and motorcycle imports, was a serious problem. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/harley-davidson-and-free-trade/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55726 Tue, 12 Jul 2022 00:00:00 -0700 14:01 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Ronald Reagan, An American Patriot If you look back at Ronald Reagan’s career, whether you agree with his policies or not, there’s one thing no one can dispute, and that’s his staunch, hopeful patriotism. Journalist and author Nancy Gibbs wrote, “Hope is an infectious disease, and Reagan was a carrier. The country he courted and finally won over in 1980 was a dispirited place, humiliated abroad, uncertain at home, with a hunger for heroes but little faith that they could make any difference. But you can, he told us. I am not the hero, you are.” "Let us renew our faith and our hope," he declared in his first Inaugural Address. "We have every right to dream heroic dreams." And he would serve as Dreamer in Chief. "What I'd really like to do," he said after six months in the White House, "is go down in history as the President who made Americans believe in themselves again." https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/ronald-reagan-an-american-patriot/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55692 Tue, 05 Jul 2022 00:00:00 -0700 20:14 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Inflation The subject of today’s podcast is inflation…yes, just like the song, everything old is new again. What we’re going to hear today are two angles: a radio address he delivered on Inflation and Recession in 1975 and in the second half of the podcast, we’ll hear the president report directly after leaving Washington on how he handled the problem of inflation. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/inflation/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55646 Tue, 28 Jun 2022 00:00:00 -0700 22:53 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Berlin in 1982 The place is…Berlin and the date is June 1982, FIVE years before he delivered his historic speech at the Brandenburg gate, demanding that the wall be torn down. This was during the Brezhnev years, long before Gorbachev and Glasnost were in the picture. It’s easy to forget how clearly President Reagan expressed his disgust with the Soviets and the Berlin Wall, many years before the so-called climax at the Brandenburg Gate in 1987. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/berlin-in-1982/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55621 Tue, 21 Jun 2022 00:00:00 -0700 21:33 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Background at the Brandenburg Gate Constructed in the early hours on August 13, 1961, the Berlin Wall was characterized by the Soviets as “a democratic anti-fascist protective structure.” Now isn’t that an interesting statement? Today Putin is using the same angle, claiming their intrusion into Ukraine is an anti-fascist gesture. The Berlin wall was built to end the flow of East Germans into the West. The Wall was built and within hours, friends and family were divided by barbed wire and concrete. Fast forward to the Spring of 1987. Negotiations from the Reykjavik Summit in 1986 had stalled and Gorbachev noted after visiting the Berlin Wall….get this…. that “At the Brandenburg Gate, one can clearly see how much strength and true heroism the defense of the first socialist state on German soil requires against the attacks of the class enemy.” Aware of such language, President Reagan was ready to level stronger demands which would echo throughout the West, reverberate behind prison gates in the East and ignite a resolve to fight for freedom. By 1987, President Reagan was ready to take freedom on the offensive, into the heart of the disintegrating Soviet empire. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/background-at-the-brandenburg-gate/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55568 Tue, 14 Jun 2022 00:00:00 -0700 25:16 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no A Campaign for Democracy If one thinks about Ronald Reagan’s signature causes, the things that come to mind are peace through strength, economic opportunity, individual liberty, and national pride. What many people have forgotten is his campaign for democracy – yes, a global campaign for democracy – which was launched 40 years ago on June 8, 1982. The setting for that speech? The British Parliament and the speech came to be known as his “Westminster Speech.” He became the first American President to deliver an address before British Parliament and stood in a grand and regal setting, speaking at the Royal Gallery of the House of Lords, with paintings of British military victories lining the walls and guards in their red beefeater uniforms standing behind him. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/a-campaign-for-democracy/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55516 Tue, 07 Jun 2022 00:00:00 -0700 22:17 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty The Statue of Liberty was designed by sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel, as a gift to the United States from France. She arrived in 1885 on our shores in pieces after floating across the Atlantic in 214 crates. All the pieces were assembled on Liberty Island the following year. But by 1984, after welcoming immigrants to New York for almost 100 years, she was in bad shape. In this podcast, we’ll learn about how President Reagan in May 1982, 40 years ago, took action to return Lady Liberty to pristine condition. He called upon Lee Iacocca to create the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation to raise the funds necessary for the restoration, and by the 4th of July 1986, she was ready for her debut. In the second half of this podcast, we’ll focus on the final result. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/ellis-island-and-the-statue-of-liberty/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55429 Tue, 31 May 2022 00:00:00 -0700 16:48 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Secrets of WWII and the Armed Forces Armed Forces Day is upon us – it’s the 3rd Saturday in May. And right now, there’s an historic exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley - running through October 9th – called the Secrets of World War II honoring those brave men and women who served and supported our troops. Our curators have assembled hundreds of artifacts from museums and private collections - never before seen together – which reveal compelling stories of technological advancement, creative problem solving, and incredible human persistence under the backdrop of world’s largest and most destructive war in history. If you have a chance to visit the Reagan Library to see this exhibit, you’ll love it. And we’re mentioning this in our podcast, because President Reagan always remembered to honor those men and women currently wearing the cloth of our nation in a radio address to the nation on Armed Forces Day. It was created by President Harry Truman in August, 1949, to those all serving as well as those who sacrificed to defend our freedom. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/secrets-of-wwii-and-the-armed-forces/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55360 Tue, 24 May 2022 00:00:00 -0700 21:09 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no High School Q&A with the President It turns out that Presidents like to visit schools and deliver remarks. President George HW Bush told a group of junior high students, “I’m not here to tell you what to do or what to think. Maybe you’re accustomed to adults talking about you and at you; well, today, I’m here to talk to you and challenge you. Education matters, and what you do today, and what you don’t do can change your future.” In 1988, President Reagan told Junior High students they were living in a “time of unlimited possibilities, bounded only by the size of your imagination, the depth of your heart, and the character of your courage.” But earlier, in 1982, he went a step further. The President visited Providence-St. Mel’s High School in Chicago, and actually answered questions. The kids didn’t mince words – they asked him tough questions…from the meaning of the Falkland Island crisis, to the economy to nuclear weapons to gun control. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/high-school-qa-with-the-president/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55296 Tue, 17 May 2022 00:00:00 -0700 44:48 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The President Returns to His Alma Mater It’s commencement address season and like all American presidents, our 40th delivered quite a few. One of his most memorable was at his Alma Mater, Eureka College on May 9, 1982, celebrating the 50th anniversary of his class of ’32. So in this podcast, we’ll listen to an excerpt from that historic Commencement address in which he used the occasion to launch the START program for reducing nuclear weapons for both the United States and Russia. In the second half of the podcast, we’ll hear his speech after he had been inducted into Eureka College’s Athletic Hall of Fame – get ready to smile and laugh. It’s a classic. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-president-returns-to-his-alma-mater/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55251 Tue, 10 May 2022 00:00:00 -0700 33:35 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Softening Congress By May, 1982, the President’s economic reforms were just starting to kick in, slowly. Once his economic reform package passed in August 1981, he relied on Republican Congressional support to reassure their constituents to have faith that the reforms would eventually kick the economy into full gear. As you might recall, Republicans were in the minority in the House with Tip O’Neill as the Speaker. In the Senate, Republicans held a small majority, only 53, seats with Howard Baker as Majority Leader. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/softening-congress/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55183 Tue, 03 May 2022 00:00:00 -0700 21:51 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Oil and OPEC As you perhaps recall, in the late 1970's, the energy crisis was in full swing. The price of gasoline and oil were soaring as we waited hours in gas lines and worried about a shortage of heating oil in the winter. Demands for more energy ran up against serious environmental concerns. Sound familiar? Over a 5 year period, Governor Reagan, then out of office, delivered 85 broadcasts on the energy problem and environment – we’ll listen to two of them today…one entitled OIL I and the other entitled OPEC. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/oil-and-opec/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55077 Tue, 26 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0700 12:02 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Nuclear Weapons 40 years ago on April 15, 1982, President Reagan met with reporters in the Oval Office to announce his plans to speak to the United Nations’ Arms Limitation Conference in June. He also suggested that General Secretary Brezhnev of the Soviet Union would do the same. And he hoped he could meet with the elusive Soviet Leader during the Conference. Ultimately, Brezhnev did not attend the Conference but sent Andrei Gromyko, the Soviet Foreign Minister, in his place. Rumors were that Brezhnev was in poor health, and yes, ultimately confirmed by his death five months later in November 1982. But just a few days after President Reagan met with those reporters in the Oval Office in April, he felt compelled to report to the American people his approach and his strong beliefs on the subject of nuclear war and delivered this radio address on April 17th. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/nuclear-weapons/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 55016 Tue, 19 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0700 28:35 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Soviet Aggression, Part 2 As the world watches the Soviet Union march through Ukraine, terrorizing and pillaging, we’ll go back to the words of Ronald Reagan in his autobiography when he noted that in the 70’s, the Soviets interpreted our hesitation and reluctance to act, along with our reduced sense of National self-confidence, as a weakness and exploited it to the fullest, to create a communist dominated world. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/soviet-aggression-part-2/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54980 Tue, 12 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0700 29:37 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Soviet Aggression Russian aggression is top of mind today with their tragic invasion of Ukraine. Sadly, it’s not a new topic if you look at the Reagan archives where citizen Reagan was speaking to Americans. Let’s go back to these words from his speech in October 1964, 58 years ago. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/soviet-aggression/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54941 Tue, 05 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0700 30:22 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Taiwan and China, Part 2 Today’s podcast continues on the theme of Taiwan and China, but we’re moving up to 1984. In the spring of 1984, President Reagan spent six days in the People’s Republic of China, visiting Beijing and Shanghai. This visit followed Premier Zhao Ziyang’s visit to Washington DC in January 1984, clearing the diplomatic path for the President to visit China. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/taiwan-and-china-part-2/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54868 Tue, 29 Mar 2022 00:00:00 -0700 49:44 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Taiwan and China, Part 1 Today, we’ll begin a two-part podcast about Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China by hearing Ronald Reagan’s thoughts in the 70’s and 80’s. Governor Ronald Reagan was a vocal supporter of Taiwan and was first introduced to the country in 1971 when he traveled there at the request of President Nixon. His task was to reassure Chiang Kai-shek that the United States remained committed to U.S.-Taiwan relations, even though Henry Kissinger was holding secret meetings in the People’s Republic of China. Ronald Reagan regarded Taiwan as a loyal, democratic, longtime ally to whom we owed unqualified support and he was concerned how Al Haig and others in the state department were so eager to improve relations with the Peoples Republic of China, that, ultimately as president, tried to press him back from this pledge of support. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/taiwan-and-china-part-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54754 Tue, 22 Mar 2022 00:00:00 -0700 11:06 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no St. Patrick's Day For today’s podcast, we’re showcasing how President Reagan used humor and Irish wit to build relationships, defuse anger and reach across the aisle consistently. We know how he fought with Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill, and we also know how hard he worked to build a relationship with his political foe whom he considered a friend and colleague. You’ll hear him say that we live in “a country which permits two not-so-shy and not-so-retiring Irishmen to have it out on the issues rather than on each other or their countrymen.” A lesson our current politicians seem to have missed. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/st-patricks-day-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54661 Tue, 15 Mar 2022 00:00:00 -0700 16:52 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Newspapers The subject today? Newspapers. Every year in March, President Reagan would deliver a speech to the National Newspaper Association at their annual meeting, often inviting them to the White House.

So, 40 years ago, in February 1982, our 40th president celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Voice of America. We think you will truly enjoy these remarks – not only does he give a history of the Voice of America, but tells some great old radio stories to entertain his audience. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/voice-of-america/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54454 Tue, 22 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0700 14:23 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no The Presidential Press Conference In Ronald Reagan’s eight years as president, he held a total of 46 press conferences which is one of the lowest numbers compared to other presidencies. For example, in their eight years, Eisenhower and Clinton faced the press 193 times, Bush ’43 met with the White House Press corps 210 times and to date, Biden is at number nine. Although President Woodrow Wilson held the first presidential press conference on March 15,1913, the modern idea of a live, televised press conference dates basically from the Eisenhower Administration. Prior to that, the rules governing press conferences favored the president. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/the-presidential-press-conference/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54361 Tue, 15 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0700 30:22 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Faith and the National Prayer Breakfast The month of February held very special meaning for Ronald Reagan for a number of reasons. Yes, his birthday was February 6th followed by Valentine’s Day when he always honored his beloved wife, Nancy. But the other important event in February during his presidency was the opportunity to address the national prayer breakfast. In case you aren’t familiar with it, the National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C., usually on the first Thursday in February. It’s actually a series of meetings, luncheons, and dinners—and has taken place since 1953 and has been held at least since the 1980s at the Washington Hilton’s International Ballroom attended by some 3500 guests, with invitees attending from over 100 countries. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/faith-and-the-national-prayer-breakfast/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54307 Tue, 08 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0700 20:51 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Hosni Mubarak, Former President of Egypt One of the most heartbreaking moments in Reagan’s presidency came early in his term, when his dear friend and colleague, Anwar Sadat, was assassinated. The President greatly admired everything about his leadership and character and worried about who would follow and uphold the principles the fine man initiated. Who would take the helm in Egypt? The man who followed Sadat, Muhammad Hosni El Sayed Mubarak, was an Egyptian military and political leader who served as the fourth president of Egypt from 1981 to 2011. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/hosni-mubarak-former-president-of-egypt/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54194 Tue, 01 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0700 26:12 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no FDR and Reagan Ronald Reagan had tremendous respect for FDR, in many ways; in how he communicated and inspired the American people and how FDR was a devoted public servant. 40 years ago, on January 28th, 1982, the President delivered remarks at a White House Luncheon, celebrating the Centennial of the Birth of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. We’ll listen to these remarks but first, on May 25th, 1977, then former Governor Ronald Reagan delivered a radio address, entitled Public Servants. As you listen, think about the Air Traffic Controllers strike which occurred 4 years later in 1981, during his first year in office. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/fdr-and-reagan/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54122 Tue, 25 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0700 15:15 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no State of the Union On January 27, 1987, President Ronald Reagan delivered his sixth State of the Union address, calling for cuts in domestic spending, an increase in the defense budget, and an assurance of no tax increases. But before he delivered the speech to Congress, he prepared a radio address to the nation, to be delivered several days before his annual State of the Union Address. Inspired by FDR’s Fireside Chats, Ronald Reagan felt there was an intimacy to radio which could not be replicated. And this intimacy provided an opportunity to touch the American people in a completely unique way. So, on January 24, 1987,  in this informative address, the President gave the American people a little history on the State of the Union tradition. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/state-of-the-union/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 54013 Tue, 18 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0700 45:38 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Martin Luther King, Jr. In this podcast, we’ll look back to a few addresses delivered by President Reagan in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. As you recall, beginning almost immediately after King’s assassination in April 1968, members of Congress proposed that his birthday ought to be a national holiday, but bills mandating the occasion went nowhere. The effort received more publicity when, after about a decade, shortly after the failure of a bill that was introduced by Rep. John Conyers Jr. of Michigan in September of 1979, Stevie Wonder released a song called “Happy Birthday.” Despite its cheery title, it was specifically meant to make a case for the holiday, calling out anyone who didn’t support the idea. In 1982, Coretta Scott King and Stevie Wonder presented a petition with more than six million signatures in support of the holiday to the then speaker of the house. In November 1983 President Ronald Reagan signed a bill establishing the third Monday of January as the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/martin-luther-king-jr/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53951 Tue, 11 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0700 21:12 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no A Global New Year's Greetings Delivering a warm New Year’s greeting to the American people was always an important tradition for President Reagan. And these greetings reflected more than the extension of glad tidings and joy. By January 1982, 40 years ago, he had been in office 11 months, he already witnessed the successful passage of his economic agenda and, interestingly, began to transition to a global strategy with speeches throughout the year, echoing his intentions. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/a-global-new-years-greetings/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53913 Tue, 04 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0700 44:14 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Football As we approach a new year, let’s throw a Hail Mary pass to one of President Reagan’s favorite sports….football. So in this podcast, we’ll cover his thoughts on sports, his New Years Address, 40 years ago on January 1, 1982 when he focused on the Rose Bowl competitors, Iowa and the Washington Huskies, we’ll catch his Remarks at the opening of the Champions of America exhibit, and we’ll listen to his interview with Tom Brokaw at Superbowl 20 in 1986. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/football/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53901 Tue, 28 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0700 27:13 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Crisis in Poland In June of 1982, President Reagan delivered a prophetic address to British members of Parliament at Westminster on June 8, 1982. In that speech, he said that the Soviet Union, the home of Marxist Leninism, was gripped by a great Revolutionary crisis. And the pivot of that crisis was…Poland, which was still under martial law in 1982, first imposed in December 1981. 40 years ago this month. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/crisis-in-poland/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53900 Tue, 21 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0700 38:35 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Environment There’s a lot of talk about the environment these days – climate change of course – but also many other issues. With those issues top of mind, let’s take another look at those seminal radio addresses, written in the late 70’s. Initially, when he set out to write these essays, there was no special plan to cover particular issues. From 1975-1979, he chose various topics week by week, choosing ones that he thought were timely. The result was nonetheless a blueprint for the policy issues that were important to Reagan from 1975-1979.  https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/environment-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53898 Tue, 14 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0700 17:23 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Education You may recall a recent gubernatorial election in the state of Virginia where a virtual unknown Republican by the name of Glenn Youngkin prevailed. Basically, the pundits hailed his win as a victory for parental rights in education. 45 years ago, the same concern was expressed by Governor Reagan in a radio address to the nation. Actually, he wrote a number of essays on what was wrong with American education and today, you’ll have a chance to listen to a few of these. You’ll note a strong theme running throughout all his writings…which is the desirability of local control and the dangers of interference by the federal government. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/education-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53577 Tue, 07 Dec 2021 00:00:00 -0700 17:23 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Venezuela and Ronald Reagan Today, when most of us think about Venezuela, the former socialist President Hugo Chavez comes to mind. He led the nation from 2002 until his death in 2013. While initially a “populist” leader, he implemented a socialist revolution, fueled by massive oil revenues and made the country resemble an authoritarian state. After his death, President Nicolas Maduro succeeded him along with Juan Guaido, and the net result has been dismal. The South American country has been caught in a downward spiral for years with growing political discontent further fuelled by skyrocketing hyperinflation, power cuts, and shortages of food and medicine. More than 5.6 million Venezuelans have left the country in recent years. But in 1981, 40 years ago, when our 40th President came into office, Venezuela’s leader was an advocate of democracy. With a desire to solidify the relationship with this important South American ally, President Reagan held a state dinner in November 1981 for President Luis Herrera Campins and welcomed him to the White House. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/venezuela-and-ronald-reagan/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53491 Tue, 30 Nov 2021 00:00:00 -0700 20:37 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Space Shuttle Columbia 1981 was a year of firsts: Ronald Reagan’s first year as President and the Space Shuttle’s first mission in April and second mission in November.

The wound left him with slurred speech and partial paralysis that required the full-time use of a wheelchair. Never able to return to work, President and Mrs. Reagan honored his contribution by renaming the Press Briefing Room as the Brady Press Briefing Room, 40 years ago on November 9th, 1981. In this podcast, we’ll learn about this remarkable man, James Brady, we’ll learn a little about the history of the White House Press Room and we’ll catch the President’s remarks with some fun banter from Mr. Brady and Mrs. Reagan, along with a few members of the press, like Sam Donaldson and Helen Thomas. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/james-brady-and-the-white-house-briefing-room/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53307 Tue, 16 Nov 2021 00:00:00 -0700 18:53 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Irish-American Heritage 40 years ago this month, President Reagan was delighted to accept an award, presented to him at the 84th Annual Dinner of the Irish-American Society in New York City. He was introduced by Dr. Kevin Cahill, president of the Society, who presented the President with a medal representing the Society's highest award. Now of course, it’s an honor receive an award.

But wait, here’s a question for ya – who was the first President to have a Presidential Library by leaving his papers to the Federal Government? The answer is FDR who not only left his papers, but ultimately, his Hyde Park residence. So, that’s why we hear about George Washington’s or Thomas Jefferson’s or Lincoln’s papers in private collections because earlier, when a President left office, he just packed up the work product and went home. So, after FDR left his to the government, President Truman followed suit, leaving his papers to the government at which point Congress passed the Presidential Libraries Act, providing Federal Funding for the preservation of the work product of the White House. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/reagan-presidential-library-30th-anniversary/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53171 Tue, 02 Nov 2021 00:00:00 -0700 26:15 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no AWACS, Chic Hect, and Quid Pro Quos When a President enters office, he inherits unfinished business from the prior administration. 40 years ago, one of the bits of dicey business he inherited was a promise made by President Carter to sell AWACS or Advance Radar Surveillance Aircraft to Saudi Arabia. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/awacs-chic-hect-and-quid-pro-quos/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 53123 Tue, 26 Oct 2021 00:00:00 -0700 16:26 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Celebrating the American Victory at Yorktown, 200th Anniversary 240 years ago, on October 19, 1781, British General Charles Cornwallis surrendered his army of some 8,000 men to General George Washington at Yorktown, giving up any chance of winning the Revolutionary War.

On January 16, 1967, while Governor of California, Ronald Reagan issued a statement to the Senate and Assembly of the Legislature of California which concluded with: “Without respect for the law, the best laws cannot be effective. Without respect for law enforcement, laws cannot be carried out. We must have respect, not only for the law, but also for the many who dedicate their lives to the protection of society through enforcement of the law.” https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/law-enforcement/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51885 Tue, 28 Sep 2021 00:00:00 -0700 43:04 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Sandra Day O'Connor On September 25, 1981, Sandra Day O’Connor was sworn in as the first female Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/sandra-day-oconnor/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51829 Tue, 21 Sep 2021 00:00:00 -0700 21:15 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Constitution Day Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens.

In honor of this entertaining day, we thought we’d take another look at Ronald Reagan and humor. Ronald Reagan loved a good joke.  He could take them and dish them out with ease. Throughout his political career, Ronald Reagan used humor to take the sharp edge off serious messages, and he also used it to alleviate the hurt of detractors. Ronald Reagan’s age was the subject of many jokes during his presidency, and in a famous moment during the October 28, 1984, presidential debate with former Vice President Walter Mondale, he spun the issue in his own favor, famously deadpanning, “I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent’s youth and inexperience.” In another instance, he noted, “Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.’ And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.” So sit back and relax, and enjoy some of our favorite jokes and quips and stories during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/national-tell-a-joke-day/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51517 Tue, 17 Aug 2021 00:00:00 -0700 47:33 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no FBI In honor of the Reagan’s Library current special exhibition, FBI: From Al Capone to Al Qaeda, which is on display through January 9, 2022, this week’s Words to Live By podcast focuses on the FBI. The FBI is the nation's lead federal law enforcement agency for investigating and preventing acts of domestic and international terrorism. It is the lead federal agency for investigating attacks involving weapons of mass destruction—those involving chemical, radiological, or biological agents or nuclear weapons. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/fbi/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51469 Tue, 10 Aug 2021 00:00:00 -0700 20:11 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Air Traffic Controllers In this week’s podcast, we present President Reagan’s remarks and question-and-answer session with reporters on the Air Traffic Controllers Strike on August 3, 1981, which happened 40 years ago today. Writing about that speech in his book “Speaking My Mind,” Ronald Reagan said, “I'm not very good at firing people; maybe it goes back to the fact that as a child I can remember my father being out of work.  I know the hardship and dislocation it can cause a family.  But I also believe that people should keep their word when they make a promise.  This is why I fired the air controllers.” https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/air-traffic-controllers/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51400 Tue, 03 Aug 2021 00:00:00 -0700 16:59 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Republicanism In 1932, Ronald Reagan registered as a Democrat and cast his first vote for FDR, who captivated him with his Fireside chats. As a young man, Ronald Reagan also respected the ideas of fellow Democrat Woodrow Wilson, citing this quote: “Liberty has never come from government…. The history of liberty is the history of limitation of government’s power, not the increase of it.” Ronald Reagan believed he was a Democrat through and through. Self-described as a “near hopeless hemophilic liberal” who “bled for causes,” Reagan continued to support Democratic candidates. In 1948, he hit the campaign trail for Hubert Humphrey and Harry Truman because he “wasn’t a tax-and-spend Democrat.” However, Ronald Reagan’s positions began to change in the ‘50s. General Dwight Eisenhower was considering a run for the Presidency and was encouraged to do so by many Americans. The problem was that no one knew which political party he would lead. To force the issue, in 1952 Reagan joined several other Democrats in sending a telegram to Eisenhower urging him to run for President as a Democrat. Once Eisenhower decided to run on the Republican ticket, Ronald Reagan campaigned and voted for him, believing he was the best man for the job and casting his first Republican vote. By 1960, Ronald Reagan believed that the Democratic Party was no longer the party of Thomas Jefferson or Woodrow Wilson, saying, “I realized the real enemy wasn’t big business, it was big government.” https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/republicanism/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51335 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 11:50 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Racism These past few months have both divided our country and brought us back together.  Racism is a universal challenge. There is no society on earth that is free from racism. While the US and other countries have made progress to be less racist, racism still exists. Of course, we should not accept racism in any form. We can do better. Racism goes against core American values, values that President Reagan stood up for every day -- equality and freedom. In 1987, during an address to high school students on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, President Reagan declared, “We cannot be complacent about racism and bigotry. And I would challenge all of you to pledge yourselves to building an America where incidents of racial hatred do not happen.” Let’s listen. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/racism-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51284 Tue, 20 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 40:15 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Advancing the Role of Women Ronald Reagan believed strongly in equality for all – regardless of age, gender, race or religion. In this words to live by podcast we are going to focus on President Reagan’s part in advancing the role of women. In a previous podcast we discussed how Ronald Reagan pledged, during his 1980 presidential campaign, to nominate the first woman to the US Supreme Court, as he felt this nomination was long overdue. In addition, each year in August, he issued a proclamation for Women’s Equality Day, which coincided with the August 26, 1920 passing of the 19th amendment to the constitution becoming a law – which granted women the right to vote. In his 1985 proclamation he wrote, “In every field of endeavor, women have made notable contributions to our national life. Their achievements have shown that America's women are a tremendous human resource for our Nation -- an inexhaustible reserve of talent, imagination, and ambition. Today, women have an unparalleled degree of opportunity to decide what they want to achieve in their lives. Whether they devote themselves to raising families or to pursuing careers, their contributions to America are leaving an indelible mark on our Nation's life. In the years ahead, their accomplishments will continue to shape profoundly our Nation's destiny. And in 1982, he wrote, “women have faithfully carried out responsibilities at all levels of government, in every area of employment and education, and in the nurturing of families and children. Today, more than ever, we honor women for their contribution in helping to make America great. Let us help pledge anew to dedicate our efforts to ensure equality of opportunity for every citizen of the United States.” On September 8, 1988, President Reagan addressed Executive Women in Government, saying “you represent the leading edge of a great wave of progress for American women.” Let’s listen. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/advancing-the-role-of-women/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51198 Tue, 13 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 22:58 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no In Honor of Nancy Reagan Throughout her life, Nancy Reagan served in many roles.  First as actress, wife and mother, then as First Lady of both California and the United States. In recognition of Mrs. Reagan’s tireless efforts on behalf of her husband, the nation, and the Foundation which bears her husband’s name, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute is honoring her with the Nancy Reagan Centennial from July 6, 2021-July 6, 2022.  This year-long commemoration will be filled with celebratory events, content rich programming, and special projects that will highlight her many contributions to the nation and her life of extraordinary achievements. “Some have called Nancy Reagan a diplomat for her time as First Lady of the United States.  Others see her as a bridgebuilder,” said Fred Ryan, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. “But without question, many people called Nancy Reagan one of the strongest partners ever to serve as First Lady to a President of the United States, with a deep passion for her country and even deeper devotion for her husband.” To celebrate this upcoming Centennial year – and honor Nancy Reagan for a life of extraordinary achievements – the Reagan Foundation and Institute will feature important milestones in her life through a series of programs, including the creation of the Nancy Reagan Youth Fund, a forum in Washington, D.C. dedicated to the role of First Ladies, a special exhibit at the Reagan Library, educational  curriculum for schools across the country using primary source materials, an essay/video contest for schoolchildren with scholarship rewards, a Centennial Surrogate Speakers program and the commissioning of a Nancy Reagan statue, amongst other endeavors. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/in-honor-of-nancy-reagan-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 51165 Tue, 06 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 13:46 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Sports After college, at the age of 22, Ronald Reagan, according to his autobiography, achieved his dream of becoming a sports announcer at WHO radio in Des Moines.  Of the experience he wrote, “if I had stopped there, I believe I would have been happy the rest of my life.”  The job brought him to California to cover the Chicago Cubs training camp on Catalina Island, which led him to screen test for Warner Brothers, and the rest his history! Of all the years he played sports, he’s probably most known for playing George Gipp in the movie, “Knute Rockne: All American.” As President, Ronald Reagan liked to incorporate sports whenever he could – throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game, playing a round of golf, welcoming athletes to the White House, and even hosting a little league game on the White House South Lawn in 1983. In June of 1981, President Reagan spoke at a White House reception opening for a “champions of American sport” exhibition.

On June 12, 1981, he issued a proclamation, making July 17, 1981, as national POW-MIA Recognition Day.  In the proclamation he wrote, “Throughout American history, our prisoners of war have been called upon to make uncommon sacrifices. In fulfilling their duty as citizens of the United States they have defended American ideals while suffering unimaginable indignities under the absolute control of the enemy. They remained steadfast even while their treatment contravened international understandings and violated elementary consideration of compassion and morality.” Let's listen.  https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/pow-mia/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 49953 Tue, 08 Jun 2021 00:00:00 -0700 15:38 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Mourning in America When choosing a site for his presidential library, Ronald Reagan fell in love with the vistas from what is now our Simi Valley campus.  He specifically selected the property’s west side for his Memorial Site.  Facing the Pacific Ocean, the location is home to beautiful Southern California sunsets, horse trails, and an endless sky. On June 5, 2004, at the age of 93, President Ronald Wilson Reagan passed away, with his wife and family at his side. In honor of this week commemorating the 14th anniversary of his passing, this week’s “Words to Live By” will be different.  Rather than hearing the President speak, we are going to hear from those who knew and loved him the most.  Pulling from our past events and from the eulogies of his funeral, this “Words to Live By” podcast is a tribute to our nation’s 40th president. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/mourning-in-america-1/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 49952 Tue, 01 Jun 2021 00:00:00 -0700 22:39 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Pope John Paul II President Reagan had many political allies.  We often write and talk about his relationship and friendship with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.  And, of course, we also talk and write about his relationship, and ultimately friendship, with the Soviet Union’s Mikhail Gorbachev.  Another leader with whom President Reagan had a special rapport was Pope John Paul II. As a best-selling author, Craig Shirley wrote in a 2015 Op/Ed, “Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II were men of the same moment. They were both horrified by nuclear war, they both hated communism and the Soviet Union, they both had been shot but survived and they both forgave their assailants.” As we recall, President Reagan survived his assassination attempt on March 30, 1981.  Just six weeks later, on May 13, 1981, so did the Pope.  Upon hearing the news of the shooting, President Reagan issued this message to the Pope: Let's listen.  https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/pope-john-paul-ii/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 49706 Tue, 18 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 18:34 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Arts and Humanities In 1981, during his first few months as President, Ronald Reagan was working towards his goal of limiting government spending and cutting budgets where needed.  But on May 6, 1981, he established a Presidential Task Force on the Arts and Humanities, saying, “I am naming this Task Force because of my deep concern for the arts and humanities in America. Our cultural institutions are an essential national resource; they must be kept strong. While I believe firmly that the Federal Government must reduce its spending, I am nevertheless sympathetic to the very real needs of our cultural organizations and hope the Task Force will deliver to my desk by Labor Day a plan to make better use of existing Federal resources and to increase the support for the arts and humanities by the private sector.”On October 14, 1981, President and Mrs. Reagan held a White House Luncheon for members of the task force. Following the luncheon, he gave remarks.

During his remarks, President Reagan said, “The tragedy that ended 36 years ago was still raw in our memories, because it took place, as we've been told, in our lifetime. We share the wounds of the survivors. We recall the pain only because we must never permit it to come again.” On April 20, 1982, President Reagan delivered remarks for the 2nd annual commemoration of the days of remembrance of victims of the holocaust. Let’s listen.   https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/holocaust-remembrance-day/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 49427 Tue, 27 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 21:07 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Words to Live By - Brezhnev As we continue to commemorate the 40th anniversary year of Ronald Reagan becoming our nation’s president, we come to April 24, 2021, which marks the 40th anniversary of Ronald Reagan sending a letter to Soviet Leader Leonid Brezhnev to try to begin a discussion and negotiation on the Soviet Union’s arms buildup. In March of 1983, President Reagan addressed the nation on defense and national security to discuss America’s defenses and the increases in America’s military build-up.

Ronald Reagan’s ancestral homeland was Ballyporeen, Ireland, and he was extremely proud of his Irish roots.  In June of 1984, during a diplomatic mission to Ireland, President and Mrs. Reagan visited Ballyporeen, where he discovered a local pub named in his honor! https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/st-patricks-day/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 49076 Tue, 23 Mar 2021 00:00:00 -0700 30:19 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no James Brady The White House Press Secretary is a senior White House official whose primary responsibility is to act as spokesperson for the executive branch of the federal government of the United, States, especially with regard to the president, senior aides and executives, as well as government policies. The press secretary is responsible for collecting information about actions and events within the president's administration and issues the administration's reactions to developments around the world. The press secretary interacts with the media and the White House press corps on a daily basis. President Reagan selected James Brady for his first White House Press Secretary. Just 40 when Ronald Reagan gave him the White House job, he had already served as a spokesman for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Office of Management and Budget and the Pentagon, and for the failed presidential campaign of Texas Republican John Connally.Exactly two months into the job, on March 21, 1981, President Reagan joined in the fun during a roast in honor of Press Secretary Brady. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/james-brady/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 49015 Wed, 17 Mar 2021 00:00:00 -0700 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Canada While in office, President Reagan visited 26 foreign countries, and countless U.S. cities, traveling over 660,000 miles in Air Force One – more than any other president at that time. His first visit outside of the United States?  To Canada, in March of 1981.  We learn more about this trip in this week’s Words To Live By Podcast.  https://www.reaganfoundation.org/programs-events/webcasts-and-podcasts/podcasts/words-to-live-by/canada/ itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) 48903 Tue, 09 Mar 2021 00:00:00 -0700 25:55 itunes@reaganfoundation.org (Reagan Foundation) no no Margaret Thatcher A White House state dinner honors a visiting head of government or reigning monarch and is one of the grandest and most glamorous of White House affairs. It is part of an official state visit and provides the president and first lady the opportunity to honor the visiting head of state and his or her spouse. It is a courtesy—an expression of goodwill—a way of extending hospitality. It brings to mind the tradition of breaking bread with friends to seal a friendship. It is an event that also showcases global power and influence.

And then…as now…the subject of Iranian aggression was the focus of many speeches. Because in Iran, as President Reagan wrote in his autobiography, “more than fifty Americans had been held captive for almost a year under the regime of a vicious religious despot.” Let’s begin with his welcoming remarks to the freed American hostages in January 1981.

Rather than continuing to focus on the famous remarks delivered by President Reagan in 1987 when he asked Gorbachev to tear down the wall, we thought we’d go back in history, to recall the story of the Wall and review some of the President’s early remarks about the Wall… because for many years, our 40th president viewed it as the ultimate symbol of Soviet aggression and totalitarian control, unyielding to its innocent prisoners.
