Patrick J. Buchanan’s new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever,” details his time as a speechwriter and senior adviser to President Nixon. Buchanan joined Federalist Radio for a two-part interview series.
In the first episode, Buchanan shares stories from times of both success and defeat in media, politics, and the conservative movement.
“So I sent [Nixon] a memo which I think was one of the most important ones I wrote in the White House, saying, ‘Now is the time. We’re going to have to go directly after the media and here’s the way to do it,” he said.
In the second episode, Buchanan opens up about his own political career and the role faith plays in politics. His speech at the 1992 RNC warned that American values were in jeopardy.
“I really believe the West is very probably in a terminal decline,” he said. “It’s lost its faith. It’s lost its empires. It’s losing its unity now. It can’t defend its borders. It’s demographically dying.”
