JFK Has a Message for Today’s Democrats on Taxes: Cut! Cut! Cut!

Yesterday, I was extremely honored to discover that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh had featured a new ad from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity (which I am professionally affiliated with) on his show. As a longtime listener, it is absolute thrill that a project I worked on received recognition from his iconic program — but even more gratifying is knowing that the added attention will go a long way towards educating the public on one item that has flown under the radar during the tax debate: Tax cuts have historically been a bipartisan solution for economic growth.     As Larry Kudlow

“I’m Speaking”: Coulter to Defy College Officials, Visit UC Berkeley Anyway

Left-wing snowflakes are at it again — this time shutting down a speaking gig by Ann Coulter at the University of California, Berkeley. Violent protesters rioted there earlier this year when alt-right pot-stirrer Milo Yiannopolous came to campus, and his event eventually had to be cancelled after the protesters destroyed school property, threw Molotov cocktails, and assaulted students. Looking to prevent a similar display of violence, the administration at UC Berkeley first canceled Coulter’s appearance, then rescheduled it to a later date. But Coulter, in an act of defiance, has announced she will be speaking at the university on the original

What ‘JFK and the Reagan Revolution’ Reveals About Trump

Remember prosperity? Want it back? Here’s the secret formula, which has always worked and would work again: Cut marginal tax rates and restore integrity to the dollar. Donald Trump is campaigning on meaningful marginal tax rate cuts and implying, with his offstage praise of the gold standard, a solid instinct for monetary integrity and how to produce it. One hopes so as it requires both together. Here’s the brief. Lawrence Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic have just published what deserves to be the most important book of the 2016 presidential election cycle: JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American

The Story of “Reagan’s Lost Campaign Ad”

Jeff Bell, Policy Director for the American Principles Project and occasional contributor to The Pulse 2016, recently sat down for an interview with The Daily Reckoning’s Brian Maher to discuss the Reagan Revolution of 1980. One interesting story from the campaign detailed by Bell involved a pro-gold standard TV ad which Reagan appeared in — and the intriguing reason why the ad never ran: Brian Maher: … Gentlemen, we talk a lot about gold here at The Daily Reckoning. I don’t know how many people remember today, but Reagan wanted to return to a gold standard. In fact, I believe

Trump Sounds Like Reagan: GOP Should Help Workers

There’s a story in Politico today where Donald Trump says that the GOP will become a ‘workers party’ under his leadership: “Five, 10 years from now — different party. You’re going to have a worker’s party,” Trump said in the May 17 interview. “A party of people that haven’t had a real wage increase in 18 years, that are angry.” Trump is right to recognize a critical flaw in the GOP’s current economic platform, which focuses almost exclusively on businesses and “job-creators.” The only way to win future elections is to make the GOP platform more friendly to workers. Republicans’ goal should be to

On the KKK, Trump Can Learn a Lesson from Reagan

Last week, former KKK leader and anti-Semite David Duke announced on his radio program (I didn’t know he even had one!) that he supported Donald Trump and was going to vote for him. “Voting for these people [Cruz, Rubio and Carson], voting against Donald Trump at this point, is really treason to your heritage,” Duke added. Trump was peppered with questions about the endorsement Friday. He dismissed it, saying, “I didn’t even know he endorsed me. David Duke endorsed me? OK, alright. I disavow, OK?” Last summer, when Duke said positive things about Trump, The Donald was quick to denounce
