Young America’s Foundation (YAF) is excited to announce that 45th Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker has been elected by YAF’s board of directors as president of Young America’s Foundation, effective February 1, 2021.

Governor Walker courageously advanced freedom in a state that once was a “progressive” bastion. He championed right-to-work laws, right-to-life causes, and defended Wisconsin’s wage earners from over-reaching bureaucrats and tax collectors.

With hard-earned conservative credentials, Governor Walker’s fearlessness to do the right thing—regardless of opposition—mirrors the commitment to freedom’s principles seen in bold YAF activists across America. His dedication to rooting out fraud and corruption also reflects YAF’s work to expose the Left’s schemes to corrupt higher learning and indoctrinate—rather than educate—today’s young people.

Governor Walker has been involved in Young America’s Foundation programs throughout his time as governor, and his wife, Tonette, serves on YAF’s Reagan Ranch Board of Governors.

In addition to guiding Young America’s Foundation, Governor Walker will also oversee the management of more than 500 Young Americans for Freedom Chapters; President Reagan’s Rancho del Cielo and YAF’s Reagan Ranch Center–the largest conservative campus on the west coast; YAF’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise and the National Journalism Center; America’s largest campus lecture program; and an aggressive legal strategy to ensure institutions and administrators are held accountable when they violate students’ First Amendment rights.

Over his more than four decades as YAF’s president, Ron Robinson built the modern Conservative Movement in America. His bold vision to reach generations of young people with conservative ideas included YAF’s purchase of President Reagan’s beloved Rancho del Cielo in 1998 and his work to successfully defend students’ rights from campus quads to the Supreme Court.

“Governor Walker has been one of the most successful and principled governors in American history—I believe his experience and leadership will strengthen our ability to fulfill YAF’s mission,” remarked Young America’s Foundation President Ron Robinson.

“It has been my honor to work with students and supporters over the past four decades to help make a difference in the lives of countless young people from coast-to-coast and preserve the home and legacy of one of the greatest Presidents in our nation’s history. I am especially thankful for the loyalty, dedication, and hard work of our board of directors, vice presidents, and our entire YAF team,” Robinson noted.

“I look forward to further accomplishments during my remaining time as the Foundation’s president, and I am excited for what the future will bring under the leadership of Governor Walker.”

“Ronald Reagan inspired me as a young person to become a conservative and an optimist,” noted YAF President-Elect and 45th Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker. “It is an absolute honor to be chosen to lead an optimistic organization inspired by President Reagan to show young people the truth about how common-sense conservative ideas work—and it is a privilege to follow in the footsteps of Ron Robinson who is a giant in the Conservative Movement.”

Young America’s Foundation is committed to ensuring that increasing numbers of young Americans understand and are inspired by the ideas of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values. As the principal outreach organization of the Conservative Movement, YAF introduces thousands of American youth to these principles each year.

Providing a live update on Saturday’s mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas Walmart, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) warned Antifa protesters to cancel their plans to come to the city.

A 21 year-old male suspect has been taken into custody, an unknown number of victims are dead, and others have been take to local hospitals, Lt. Gov. Patrick said.

Patrick, then, issued a stern warning to Antifa: “Stay out of Texas.”

“I was looking at a story recently. I just saw, the last couple of days ago, where Antifa is posting, you know, they want to come to El Paso and do a ten-day siege.

“A clear message to Antifa: Stay out of El Paso. Stay out of Texas, basically.”

Antifa is not welcome at any time, but certainly not now, Lt. Gov. Patrick added, repeating his call for Antifa to “Stay out of Texas.’

“But, we don’t need them coming in on September 1st. We didn’t need them to begin with, before this happened. But, I would say to Antifa: Scratch Texas off your map and don’t come in. It is not the time and place for them to come at any time, but particularly in the aftermath of what just happened in El Paso.

“So, Antifa, message from the lieutenant governor: Stay out of Texas.”


Trump: ‘No One Has Paid a Higher Price for the Far Left’s Destructive Agenda’ Than Inner Cities

( – President Donald Trump used his rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, to lash out at Democrats for neglecting inner cities while advocating for illegal immigrants.

“No one has paid a higher price for the far left’s destructive agenda than Americans living in our nation’s inner cities. They have paid a dear price. You see what’s happening. You see our inner cities. We spend billions and billions and billions for years and years and years, and it’s stolen money, and it’s wasted money, and it’s a shame,” he said.

“For decades, these communities have been run exclusively by Democrat politicians, and it’s been total one party control of the inner cities. For 100 years, it’s been one party control, and look at ‘em. We can name one after another, but I won’t do that, ‘cause I don’t want to be controversial. We want no controversy,” the president said.

“The Democrat record is one of neglect and corruption and decay – total decay. The Democrats have taxed and regulated jobs and opportunity out of these cities and out of existence. They’ve squeezed the blood out of them. Left-wing mayors and city councils have opposed school choice, trapping children in failing and government schools left and right. So many of these mayors right now. You know where they are? They’re in jail. That’s where they are,” Trump said.

The president said he watched CNN’s Democratic presidential debates and noticed that Democrats spent more time attacking former President Barack Obama than they did attacking Trump.

“I was watching the so-called debate last night, and I also watched the night before. That was long, long television, and the Democrats spent more time attacking Barack Obama than they did attacking me practically, and this morning, that’s all the fake news was talking about. That wasn’t pretty,” he said.

“While Republicans are working every day to build up our country, the rage-filled Democrat Party is trying to tear America apart. The Democrat Party is now being led by four left-wing extremists who reject everything that we hold dear,” the president said, referring to the “squad” – Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).

“Republicans believe that every parent has the right to send their children to the school of their choice, but the greatest betrayal committed by the Democrats is their support for open borders, and these open borders would overwhelm schools and hospitals, drain public services and flood communities with poisonous drugs. It’s tough enough,” Trump said. 

“And I want to thank, by the way, the country of Mexico. They’ve got 21,000 soldiers on the border right now. I’m starting to like Mexico a lot. They do a lot more for us than the Democrats do, right? And the numbers are way down. You’ll see that – way, way down,” he said.

“Democrat lawmakers care more about illegal aliens than they care about their own constituents. They put foreign citizens before American citizens. We’re not gonna do that,” the president said, adding that “572 people were murdered in Chicago last year.”

The president criticized Baltimore for having the highest murder rate in the country. As previously reported, the USA Today reported, “Baltimore is the big city with the highest per capita murder rate in the nation, with nearly 56 murders per 100,000 people.”

“The homicide rate in Baltimore is significantly higher than El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala,” Trump said. He asked the crowd to give him a place that they think is “pretty bad.” A man in the crowd shouted out, “Afghanistan.”

“I believe it’s higher than Afghanistan. In our country, think of that. I believe we’ll check the numbers, and if we’re wrong, they’ll tell us tomorrow. It’s be headlines: Trump Exaggerated. I do believe the rate is higher than Afghanistan, yet Democrats – and they’ve run it for many years – want to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on illegal migrants instead of supporting on their own struggling communities,” the president said.

Trump also criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) congressional district as “deplorable.”

“Nearly half of all the homeless people living in the streets in America happen to live in the state of California. What they are doing to our beautiful California is a disgrace to our country. It’s a shame. The world is looking at it. Look at Los Angeles with the tents and the horrible, horrible, disgusting conditions. Look at San Francisco,” he said.

“Look at some of your other cities, and then you have a governor. You have a governor that invites the whole world to come into California – we’ll pay for your health care,” the president said, referring to California Gov. Gavin Newsome.

“And then you wonder why so many people are coming up. They’re coming up, because we’re the hottest economic country in the world, but they’re also coming up, because you have people like that governor saying, come on up. We’ll give you health care,” Trump said. “Who wouldn’t come up? How crazy is this? How crazy is this? Schools, health care.”

The president proposed using the money saved from ending illegal immigration to rebuild inner cities.

“Today I have a simple proposal for Democrat leaders to support legislation to end illegal migration, and we will use the vast savings to rebuild our inner cities. That’s the way we should be doing it. That’s the way we should be doing it,” he said.
