    Reagan lecture series commences in February

    The Loudoun County-based Ronald Reagan Lecture Series will begin its 2013 season next month, kicking off Feb. 6 with John Bolton, a former ambassador to the United Nations.

    The theme for Bolton’s speech, to begin at 7 p.m. at the Ashburn Presbyterian Church, will be “The Threats to American Stability and Security.”

    The remaining spring schedule for the series includes: John Lott, a Second Amendment advocate and published author, in March; Jim Miller, former budget director during the Reagan administration, in April; and L. Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Media research Center, an organization aimed at “documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias,” in May.

    Following a summer recess, the series will resume in September with Christina Hoff Sommers, author of “The War Against Boys: How Misguided Feminism Is Harming Our Young Men,” and in October with Craig Rucker, a co-founder of C-FACT, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow.

    Dates and locations for certain speakers haven’t been finalized and will be announced at a later time. More information can be found at the the Ronald Reagan Lecture Series’ Facebook page.

    Patricia Phillips, the series’ executive director, said her organization, while nonpartisan, aims to advance conservative ideas. This is the first year the Ronald Reagan Lecture Series is operating as a nonprofit group.

    A former district chair for the Loudoun County Republican Committee, Phillips said the challenges facing the U.S. “require 60-minute lectures, not 60-second sound bites,” and the Reagan series provides such a forum.

    The series is named after Reagan because of the 40th U.S. president’s “ability to explain conservative ideas in a reasonable and logical manner that swayed many to agree with him, or at least respect his point of view.”


    – Trevor Baratko

    Perhaps one of the lectures could be someone with knowledge of a dictionary.  They could explain to the group how it’s illogical to say you have a group that honors Ronald Reagan, run by a former chair of the local Republican party, invites speakers like John Bolton, advances conservative ideas…and then says it’s nonpartisan? 

    Reads like something from the Onion…
