Review—Last Act: The Final Years and Emerging Legacy of Ronald Reagan

No historian has done a better job of chronicling Ronald Reagan’s rise to power than Craig Shirley. As always, Shirley is a perfect antidote to the “court historians” who never really “got” Reagan. Shirley’s books on Reagan’s 1976 and 1980 presidential campaigns, Reagan’s Revolution and Rendezvous With Destiny, are the gold standard in describing the Gipper’s ascendence and successful capture of the White House.

A ‘Modern Man’ vs. a ‘Man’s Man’

Recently the New York Times featured an article on what makes a modern man. Predictably, there was a lot to make fun of in the article. National Review took one of the first cracks at addressing each point.

No Class: National Review Editor Rich Lowry Resorts To Vulgarity on Fox News, Says Fiorina Cut Trump’s ‘Balls Off’

Lowry’s attack against Trump took place during Fox News’ The Kelly File on the same day Trump announced he wouldn’t be appearing on Fox News anymore since the “Fair and Balanced” cable network has been reporting unfairly about him.

Bing West: Pentagon’s ISIS Strategy a ‘Mess’

On June 5, at a Pentagon press conference, Lieutenant General John W.

The briefing illustrated how, as in Vietnam, the military becomes politicized and loses focus.

West: National Review Must Retract ‘FDR, Truman, and Ike: Not Communists, Just Naïfs’ by Ron Capshaw

On April 18, 2015, nearly two years after my book American Betrayal was published by St. Martin’s Press, National Review Online published its fifth piece attacking it. The article is by Ron Capshaw. It is also Capshaw’s fifth attack on my book. Aside from a previous attack in passing also appearing at NRO (which brings NRO’s tally to six attacks in all), Capshaw has published three other attacks on my book at three different outlets.

Want to Help Men? Heal Marriage

In the U.S. today, all the focus seems to be on gay marriage. It’s a central topic at the Supreme Court this month, for example. But the real story isn’t the death of men; it’s the death of marriage.
