Dear Friends and Fellow Brigaders,
You are all invited to attend an outstanding event on October 23rd and 24th in Cleveland, Ohio. This is an exceptional opportunity to hear Pat Buchanan speak on the critical issues Americans are facing today. For many of us it will also be a terrific occasion to meet up with old and new Buchanan Brigaders. I’m looking forward to you joining us in Cleveland this October.
Let me know if you can make it!
As always, for the Cause – Linda

PS – Please see more information below in a letter from our good friend Tom Piatak, President of The Rockford Institute.
Dear Friend of The Rockford Institute and Chronicles:
Next summer, the eyes of the nation will be on Cleveland, as the Republicans meet to nominate their presidential candidate for 2016. If the past is any indication, the convention hall will be filled with lots of hot air and very little sense. In October of this year, another gathering will take place in Cleveland. If the past is any indication, this gathering will be marked by learned talks, lively debate, and good fellowship. I am referring, of course, to the 2015 meeting of The John Randolph Club, presented by Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture, which will be held in Cleveland on Friday, October 23, and Saturday, October 24.
“Chronicles has become the toughest, best written, and most profoundly insightful journal in America. It drives the nail as deep and true as any magazine in print.” — Patrick J. Buchanan
The meeting will begin at 5:00 P.M. on Friday with a reception and opening talk. Panel discussions will continue throughout the day on Saturday, with a healthy break for an independent lunch at one of Cleveland’s many fine restaurants. The meeting will conclude with a banquet on Saturday night, culminating with a debate. The theme of the meeting is “Nation and State,” a fruitful topic of discussion as our own nation continues to be overwhelmed by mass immigration, buffeted by globalism, and marked by profound disagreements over fundamental issues. Increasingly, Americans have less in common with, and even less affection for, one another. And the federal government is running roughshod over the domains of the state, the locality, and the family.
We have an outstanding group of speakers to speak on these vital issues. Pat Buchanan will be addressing the Randolph Club for the first time. Pat’s public career has focused on these issues, and he gave us many clear warnings of the dangers that lay ahead. Unfortunately, his warnings were ignored, and many of those dangers are now upon us. Also speaking to the Randolph Club for the first time will be William Lind, the renowned conservative thinker and military strategist. His writings on Fourth Generation Warfare have revolutionized the way people think about war and the dangers posed by failing states and collapsing nations. Another first-time speaker will be Don Devine, veteran of the Reagan administration and long-time conservative activist and thinker and exponent of the thought of Frank Meyer. Devine will share a panel with Tom Pauken, another veteran conservative activist and thinker who takes a much dimmer view of Meyer’s attempted fusion of conservatism and libertarianism.
Register today for the JRC by calling (800) 383-0680. Registration is $350* per person and includes the Friday night reception and opening address, and all talks on Saturday, dinner, and debate.
A limited number of hotel rooms are available at the Hyatt Regency Cleveland at The Arcade at $129 per night, single or double occupancy. Call (888) 421-1442 and mention The Rockford Institute, or click here on the “Make a Reservation” button to access the special rate.
*Registration increases to $400 after September 15.
There will be plenty of familiar faces as well, including the editors of Chronicles, the best magazine in America—Chilton Williamson, Scott Richert, and Aaron Wolf. Chris Kopff and Peter Brimelow, veterans of many Randolph Clubs, will also speak. Chris’s talks manage to combine the learning of a professional classicist, the ardor of an American patriot, and the wit of someone who could have written comedy for a living. Peter has been a leader on immigration for decades. In May, Ann Coulter, whose book on immigration has been on the New York Times’ bestseller list for weeks, told Chronicles that Peter was the one who woke her up on immigration. Wayne Allensworth, who has written movingly in Chronicles about what built America and about what is now trying to break her, will also join us. I will be speaking as well. Finally, the inimitable and irrepressible Taki has kindly agreed to moderate our Saturday-night debate, guaranteeing that it will be lively and entertaining, no matter what the speakers may say.
We will be meeting at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Cleveland, a lovely hotel housed in a magnificent edifice, the Cleveland Arcade. The Arcade was built in 1890 and sits in the heart of downtown, across the street in one direction from the lively restaurant district on E. 4th Street and across the street in another from the many elegant Beaux-Arts public buildings that are the result of Daniel Burnham’s “Group Plan” for the city. The Arcade, with its glass ceiling, brass fittings, and imposing Romanesque entrance arch, is a fitting site for a gathering of a group that honors tradition. (Please take a look at the many pictures on the Internet of the Arcade to get a feeling for the place.)
You can register for The John Randolph Club by calling The Rockford Institute at (800) 383-0680. The cost is $350 per person if you register by September 15, and $400 per person thereafter.
We have a block of rooms reserved at the Hyatt Regency at the rate of $129 per night, but the number of reserved rooms is limited. You can reserve your room by calling (888) 421-1442 and mentioning The Rockford Institute, or by visiting The Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade and clicking on the “Make a Reservation” button.
If you wish to make a gift to The Rockford Institute Scholarship Fund so that students and other worthy (though indigent) persons can attend, please call Cindy Link at (800) 383-0680. For a gift of $500 or more, we will send you a set of CDs of all the lectures.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com I look forward to seeing you in Cleveland.
Very truly yours,
P.S. Although the program does not begin until 5:00 P.M. on Friday, October 23, William Lind, a native Clevelander, has graciously offered to conduct a walking tour of downtown Cleveland on Friday for those who may be interested. If you are interested, please let us know when you register at (800) 383-0680.
Also, if anyone is interested in recommendations on things to see and do in the Cleveland area, we will soon have a list on the website. Cleveland’s robber barons left behind a fine cultural infrastructure, including a magnificent (and free) Museum of Art, and those who immigrated to work for those robber barons also built things worth visiting, including restaurants featuring Hungarian, Polish, and Slovenian cooking.
