15:54:56 CU speaking to camera: ...everything is going up, where is it going to end. Record inflation has robbed the purchasing power of your dollar. And for three and a half years this administartion has been unable to control it. When Pres. Ford left office at the end of 1976 the inflation rate was around 5%. Jimmy Carter told us that was too high, much too high. Well, this year Carter inflation has hit 18%. I m very worried as all Americans are. And I m prepared to do somethting about it. One, I will institute an immediate freeze on all Federal hiring; that will help us to start slowing down the growth of the Federal Bureaucracy, the single greatest cause of inflation in America today. Two, I will order that every example of waste & inefficiency in government be eliminated in as orderly a manner as possible. This will take great determination on the part of the President. Well, I intend to be very determined. Three, we won t just stop w/ the waste & inefficiencies that we find; why not get the benefit of a fresh outside look at things. What I ll do is call in the best minds from industry & from labor, from many sectors & ask them to volunteer their time as a service to our country. Their assignment will be to go over the entire Federal Government w/ a fine tooth comb & tell us where additional examples of waste are. With that done we ll do the rest. Four, I will set as a very high priority the balancing of the budget. A balance budget works to combat inflation; the sooner we can balance the Federal budget the better.

15:56:34 Five, we ll think price tag whenever we think program. In the past programs have been developed w/o concern for cost. Well, no more. When presenting the tax payer w/ a new program we ll level w/ him about wht that program is going to cost. The Federal Government doesn t give us programs, it charges us using our money to support, not only the program but the high priced bureaucracy to administer it. Six, I will invite to the White House representatives of the private sector & from labor. We ll sit down & get their honest views & come up w/ recommendations about inflation that are fair to both sides & to the American people as a whole. Now these are not simple solutions...

15:57:24 We can have a more streamlined government...

15:57:49 VO The time is now for strong leadership, Reagan for President.

Your courageous & compassionate role in giving shelter to millions of Afghan refugees is well known to the American people & will long be remembered...we also applaud your efforts & those of the Indian government to reconcile your differences....similarly Pakistan s positive response to peace efforts in the Middle East have contributed to our confidence that our two countries can work together for peace & stability. After many years of disappointment there is growing recognition in the Middle East that a continuation of violence can only breed a worsening conflict. This cycle must be broken...

22:12:54 Underlying our ties however is something that is even more critical in an enduring relationship; and that is the warmth of understanding that exists between the peoples of our countries...

22:13:43 Mr President...welcome to the United States. They shake hands. Continued...

Calls for a solution to the Palestine problem. ..it is the first time the Arabs have put up a unified plan for the solution of the Palestine problem. To the best of my knowledge it is for the first time that the President of the United States of America has put up a very comprehensive plan w/ so many positive elements in this... Urges him to follow thru on it.

22:50:10 We cherish this union of partners, though unequal partners, but as two sovereign states... ...let America be the torch bearer of Peace; Peace not only on the American continent but Peace in Afghanistan, Peace in Vietnam, Peace in Somalia, but above all Peace in Palestine. Asks for a toast.

17:04:32 We used military radar & intelligence to detect drug traffickers, which, until we changed the law, could not be done. We increased efforts overseas to cut drugs off before they left other countries borders....drug-related arrests are up over 40 percent, the amount of marijuana seized is up about 80 percent, and the amount of cocaine seized has more than doubled.... To paraphrase Joe Louis, they can run but they can t hide.

17:07:25 My fellow Americans, before getting into today s subject, I would like to say....

17:07:47 Now today, I d like to talk about ...decision...Thursday by...NATO... talks about Geneva negotiations w/ Soviets on longer range missiles.

17:08:28 The nuclear forces in Europe are fundamental to our overall strategy of deterrence & to protect our allies & ourselves... ...sharing risks & the benefits of mutual defense.

17:09:52 When these 2,400 weapons have been withdrawn, the United States will have reduced its nuclear weapons in Europe by over one-third from 1979 levels, and NATO will have the lowest number of nuclear weapons in 20 years.

17:10:29 Since our 1979 decision to reduce nuclear forces, the Soviet Union has added over 600 SS-20 warheads to their arsenal....the so-called arms race has only one participant - the Soviet Union.

17:11:00 On Thursday NATO took a dramatic & far-reaching decision...

17:11:30 Now, let me bring you up to date on the negotiations in Geneva. Progress toward an equitable, verifiable agreement...has been slow to come.

16:33:30 ...a commitment to freedom & personal liberty that...propsers only where the blessings of God are avidly sought & humbly accepted. The American experiment in democracy...

16:35:34 I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the greatness of American in you, her people, and in your families, churches... opposition to...modern-day secularism...they proclaim that they re freein us from superstitions of the past...by government rule & regulation.

My fellow Americans, thank you for sharing your time tonight.

23:00:33 At the beginning of this year, I submitted...a defense budget...part of a careful long term plan...

23:04:07 Since the dawn of the atomic age; we ve sought to reduce the risk of war by maintaining a strong...

23:05:32 We can t afford to believe that we will never be threatened. There have been two world wars in my lifetime. We didn t start them...were ill-prepared for both...

23:05:50 For 20 years the Soviet Union has been accumulating enormous military might...

23:06:14 VO over chart re Intercontinental Missiles (ICBM) w/ rockets, graphics.

23:06:52 Reagan: Over the same period the Soviet Unioin built 4 new classes of submarine-launched...

23:07:39 VO over chart re Intermediate Range Weapons w/ graphics.

23:08:52 Reagan: So, together w/ our NATO allies, we decided in 1979 to deploy new weapons...

23:10:41 The following aerial photogrpahs, most of them secret until now...close to home: Central America & the Caribbean Basin...This Soviet intelligence collection facility, less than a hundred miles from our coat...

23:10:58 Photographs: Lourdes, Cuba manned by 1500 Soviet technicians... Soviet MIGs. Soviet weaponry at Sandino Airfield, Nicaragua.

23:12:36 On the small island of Grenada...building...10,000 ft. runway. Grenada doesn t even have an air force... The Soviet-Cubanmilitarization of Grenada, in short, can only be seen as a power projection...

23:15:00 Our NATO allis have assumed a great defense burden, including the military draft in most countries.

23:18:43 It ll take us longer to build the kind of equipment we need to keep peace n the future... We haven t built a new long-range bomber for 21 years. Now we are building the B-1. We hadn t launched one new strategic submarine for 17 years. Now we re building one...Trident...a year.

23:20:25 VO chart. The fact is in the past few decades we have seen a dramatic shift in how we spend the taxpayer s dollar...

23:24:44 Let me share w/ you a vision of the future which offers hope. It is that we embark on a program to counter the awesome Soviet missile threat w/ measures that are defensive. Let us turn to the very strengths in technology that spawned our great industial base & that have given us the quality of life we enjoy today.

23:27:10 I clearly recognize that defensivesystems have limitations & raise certain problems...

President Reagan into room & to podium SOF: ...I would like to share w/ you & the people of the world...relations between the United States & the Soviet Union. Tomorrow the United States will join the Soviet Union & 33 other nations at a European disarmament conference in Stockholm....I believe that 1984 finds the United States in the strongest position in years...

15:01:48 Over the last 10 years, the Soviets devoted twice as much of their gross national product...

15:02:41 Three years ago, we embraced a mandate from the American people to change course,...

15:04:29 Deterrence is essential to preserve peace and protect our way of life...

15:06:06 I propose that our governments make a major effort to see if w can make progress...

15:08:02 Our second task should be to find ways to reduce the vast stockpiles of armaments...

15:09:36 Our third task is to establish a better working relationship w/ each other...realism, strength & dialogue...

15:12:14 Strength is essential to negotiate successfully & protect our interests. If we re weak...

15:14:12 ...reducing the risk of war, & especially nuclear war, is priority number one. A nuclear conflict...

15:17:15 Take the Middle East as an example. Everyone s interest would be served by stability...

15:18:26 Experience has shown that greater respect for human rights can contribute to progess...

15:20:40 We can t predict how the Soviet leaders will respond...

15:21:41 Well, those differences are differences in governmental structure & philosophy...

15:22:58 People want to raise their children in a world without fear...

15:23:16 If the Soviet Government wants peace, then there will be peace. Together we can....let us begin now.

15:23:41 Thank you. Applause & Reagan leaves podium, crosses room to leave.

15:37:27 You know when we first proposed the steps that got our economy moving again...

15:38:16 Well, we didn t get all that we asked for, but we got a lot of spending cuts. We cut the growth...

15:39:21 I need Jack Lousma, Michigan needs Jack Lousma...

15:39:28 - 15:39:41 Sound missing on source tape from Reagan Library..

15:39;59 And that goes especially for Tom Ritter...

15:40:13 Well, I want to get down to the meat of what I have to say here, so that we can all get in where its warm. We knew that economic freedom meant paying less of the American family s earnings into the Government, and so we cut personal income tax rates...

15:41:48 You know, we can understand a little bit about the economic theories of my opponent...

15:44:09 After the Soviets invaded Afghanistan... And then he said it was immoral of us to invade Grenada. Well, a year ago we went into Grenada, and I don t think there s anything immoral about sending in our forces to save the lives of american students when their lives are in danger.

15:45:22 ...we turned things around in Washington...the Government stopped singing out S.O.S. & started saying U.S.A.! ...like our Olympic athletes, we re going to go for the gold.

15:46:09 ...last 18 months 900,000 new businesses were incorporated.

15:48:30 We re going to give to you an America where you can fly as high as your ability will take you, and there will be no government holding you down.

15:49:17 And yes, I want to be there to finish the job that we started 4 years ago.

15:50:17 I know that there must be out here many of you who are Democrats, but who have found, as I found -- because I was once a Democrat -- you found that you cannot follow the course set by this present leadership. Well then come walk w/ us down the path of hope & opportunity...

15:51:10 My last message is intended to drive our opponents up the walls. it is: You ain t seen nothin yet. Thank you all. god bless you. Thank you.

I would like to discuss several points: why the Soviet Union should feel threatened by us when we have never started a war, and never will. ...see your military build up & your attempts to expand your influence in the world as threatening to us. And this is why we are rebuilding our own strength. We feel we must defend ourselves & to make sure war is never conceivable. But we need to go beyond that in our discussion of our rivalry.

Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbours - applause - ...we are a nation under God, and believe me God intended for us to be free...

01:59:03 If it is just a case of having used them I would like to see us do our best to get them into a drug treatment organization, and they would agree to accept the cure.

01:59:45 Is it true Mr. President that it wasn t your testing that caught these people, but it was actually a tip? I m not commenting on the investigation, but it certainly wasn t drug testing... ..Shouldn t you encourage whistle-blowers instead of drug testing? No, I think drug testing is the best way.

And this is why we are rebuilding our own strength. We feel we must defend ourselves & to make sure war is never conceivable. But we need to go beyond that in our discussion of our rivalry.

15:02:41 Three years ago, we embraced a mandate from the American people to change course,...

15:12:14 Strength is essential to negotiate successfully & protect our interests. If we re weak...

15:14:12 ...reducing the risk of war, & especially nuclear war, is priority number one. A nuclear conflict...

15:17:15 Take the Middle East as an example. Everyone s interest would be served by stability...

15:18:26 Experience has shown that greater respect for human rights can contribute to progess...

15:20:40 We can t predict how the Soviet leaders will respond...

15:21:41 Well, those differences are differences in governmental structure & philosophy...

15:40:13 Well, I want to get down to the meat of what I have to say here, so that we can all get in where its warm. We knew that economic freedom meant paying less of the American family s earnings into the Government, and so we cut personal income tax rates...

15:41:48 You know, we can understand a little bit about the economic theories of my opponent...

15:44:09 After the Soviets invaded Afghanistan... And then he said it was immoral of us to invade Grenada. Well, a year ago we went into Grenada, and I don t think there s anything immoral about sending in our forces to save the lives of american students when their lives are in danger.

15:45:22 ...we turned things around in Washington...the Government stopped singing out S.O.S. & started saying U.S.A.! ...like our Olympic athletes, we re going to go for the gold.

15:46:09 ...last 18 months 900,000 new businesses were incorporated.

15:48:30 We re going to give to you an America where you can fly as high as your ability will take you, and there will be no government holding you down.

15:54:56 CU speaking to camera: ...everything is going up, where is it going to end. Record inflation has robbed the purchasing power of your dollar. And for three and a half years this administartion has been unable to control it. When Pres. Ford left office at the end of 1976 the inflation rate was around 5%. Jimmy Carter told us that was too high, much too high. Well, this year Carter inflation has hit 18%. I m very worried as all Americans are. And I m prepared to do somethting about it. One, I will institute an immediate freeze on all Federal hiring; that will help us to start slowing down the growth of the Federal Bureaucracy, the single greatest cause of inflation in America today. Two, I will order that every example of waste & inefficiency in government be eliminated in as orderly a manner as possible. This will take great determination on the part of the President. Well, I intend to be very determined. Three, we won t just stop w/ the waste & inefficiencies that we find; why not get the benefit of a fresh outside look at things. What I ll do is call in the best minds from industry & from labor, from many sectors & ask them to volunteer their time as a service to our country. Their assignment will be to go over the entire Federal Government w/ a fine tooth comb & tell us where additional examples of waste are. With that done we ll do the rest. Four, I will set as a very high priority the balancing of the budget. A balance budget works to combat inflation; the sooner we can balance the Federal budget the better.

15:56:34 Five, we ll think price tag whenever we think program. In the past programs have been developed w/o concern for cost. Well, no more. When presenting the tax payer w/ a new program we ll level w/ him about wht that program is going to cost. The Federal Government doesn t give us programs, it charges us using our money to support, not only the program but the high priced bureaucracy to administer it. Six, I will invite to the White House representatives of the private sector & from labor. We ll sit down & get their honest views & come up w/ recommendations about inflation that are fair to both sides & to the American people as a whole. Now these are not simple solutions...

15:57:24 We can have a more streamlined government...

[Reagan Remarks at Annual Convention of the National Association of Evangelicals, 08Mar83]

Reagan to podium. Thank you, Reverend clergy all, Senator Hawkins...

16:30:36 Thank you for your prayers. Nancy & I have felt their presence many times in many ways. (tells joke). 2nd joke re Heaven s gate, St. Peter. Stereotypes.

16:33:30 ...a commitment to freedom & personal liberty that...propsers only where the blessings of God are avidly sought & humbly accepted. The American experiment in democracy...

16:35:34 I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the greatness of American in you, her people, and in your families, churches... opposition to...modern-day secularism...they proclaim that they re freein us from superstitions of the past...by government rule & regulation.

16:37:42 ...these clinics have decided to provide advice & birth control drugs & devices to underage girls w/o the knowledge of their parents. For some years now the Federal Government has helped w/ funds to subsidize these clinics.

16:39:10 ...but no one seems to mention morality as playing a part in the subject of sex. Is all of Judeo-Christian tradition wrong?

16:40:47 Freedom prosper when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.

16:43:25 More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of 50 States statutes protecting the rights of unborn children...

16:46:31 There s a great spiritual awakening in America, a renewal of the traditional values that have been the bedrock of America s goodness & greatness.

16:48:41 There is sin & evil in the world, & we re enjoined by Scripture & the Lord Jesus to oppose it w/ all our might. Our nation too has a legacy of evil w/ which it must deal...There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic & racial hatred in this country.

16:50:35 Speaks of Marxist-Leninists & USSR. Soviet Leaders & morality. Talks of trying to get 50 percent cut in strategic ballistic missiles & elimination of entire class of land-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

16:53:16 The truth is a freeze ow would be a very dangerous fraud...we must find peace through strength.

Discusses nuclear freeze problems.

16:56:40 It was C.S. Lewis who, in his unforgettable Screwtape Letters...

16:58:25 ...to ignore the facts of history & the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to call the arms race a giant misundertanding & thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right & wrong & good & evil. I ask you to resist the attempts of those (abrupt ending - lacking last two minutes of speech).

17:01:17 President Reagan & Nancy at table on patio looking at speech w/ microphones in front of them.

17:02:14 (sd starts late) ...the drug epidemic; well I thought it might be fitting if she told you herself of what she s learned about the drug problem. Nancy reading speech pages, describes effects of alcohol & drugs on higher death rate of young people 15 to 24 than 20 years ago.

17:03:43 Reagan: ...in the next few days we ll announce the administration s new strategy for the preventoin of drug abuse & drug trafficking. This is a bold, confident plane... ...and we started where narcotics crime was the worst: south Florida.

17:04:32 We used military radar & intelligence to detect drug traffickers, which, until we changed the law, could not be done. We increased efforts overseas to cut drugs off before they left other countries borders....drug-related arrests are up over 40 percent, the amount of marijuana seized is up about 80 percent, and the amount of cocaine seized has more than doubled.... To paraphrase Joe Louis, they can run but they can t hide.

17:06:00 Previous administrations had drug statagies, but they didn t have the structure to carry them out. We now have that structure.

17:06:20 The mood toward drugs is changing in this country... ...we ve taken down the surrender flag & run up the battle flag. And we are going to win the war on drugs. Till next week, thanks for listening, & God bless you.

Reagans sit & wait, then begin to get up; asked to sit back down for pictures.

[Reagans, Camp David & Radio Address, 29Oct83]

Reagan at desk indoors, holding script at microphone, waiting.

17:07:25 My fellow Americans, before getting into today s subject, I would like to say....

17:07:47 Now today, I d like to talk about ...decision...Thursday by...NATO... talks about Geneva negotiations w/ Soviets on longer range missiles.

17:08:28 The nuclear forces in Europe are fundamental to our overall strategy of deterrence & to protect our allies & ourselves... ...sharing risks & the benefits of mutual defense.

17:09:52 When these 2,400 weapons have been withdrawn, the United States will have reduced its nuclear weapons in Europe by over one-third from 1979 levels, and NATO will have the lowest number of nuclear weapons in 20 years.

17:10:29 Since our 1979 decision to reduce nuclear forces, the Soviet Union has added over 600 SS-20 warheads to their arsenal....the so-called arms race has only one participant - the Soviet Union.

17:11:00 On Thursday NATO took a dramatic & far-reaching decision...

17:11:30 Now, let me bring you up to date on the negotiations in Geneva. Progress toward an equitable, verifiable agreement...has been slow to come.

17:12:30 For our part we continue to seek an equitable & verifiable agreement as quickly as possible... Thank you for listening, and God bless you. Reagan puts away speech papers & sips glass of water.
