    In his second inaugural, a triumphant president claimed a mandate and sought a legacy. He had won a true landslide — 60 percent of the popular vote. He won all but one state in the Electoral College. Only George Washington and James Monroe had done better, with unanimous Electoral College reelections. That reelected president was Richard Nixon, re-inaugurated 50 years ago in January 1973. After his second inaugural address, his popularity stood at 67 percent. Nixon had campaigned in 1972 on prosperity and world leadership, and on the promise of peace. The economy was booming, with a real growth rate...
  • The Future of Classic Rock Tours: One or Two Surviving Members…or None? From authorized tribute bands to new recruits, heritage rockers like the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd grapple with how to keep the music playing and profitable

    IN THE LAST few years, CJ Strock, a talent agent who worked with the later incarnation of the Allman Brothers Band, faced an unusual dilemma. As seen in catalog and merch sales, a market still existed for the Allmans, their quintessentially Southern rock & roll, and their improvisational live shows, but the band itself didn’t exist: They formally gave their last performances in 2014, and Gregg Allman died of liver cancer three years later. With an eye toward introducing new fans to the band, Strock had an idea — essentially a new Allmans... Thus was born “The Allman Brothers Band...
  • Biden Didn’t Step Out Of His Beach House For Three Days, And The Media Didn’t Care. Pretty Weird, Huh?

    Joe Biden capped off his lengthy vacation without stepping out of his beach house for three straight days, and the self-proclaimed “defenders of democracy” in legacy media do not seem to care that much as to what exactly he is doing behind closed doors. ... All week/weekend long, the White House reporters camped out in Rehoboth Beach, Del., waited for Biden to leave for a nice bike ride or walk on the beach. And waited. But after decamping from Wilmington for his beach house in Rehoboth on Saturday evening, the president didn’t do much of anything,” Politico’s writers observed. “As...

    Proving that what’s old is new again, here is how the late William Safire began his New York Times column of Jan. 8, 1996: “Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady - a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation - is a congenital liar. “Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.” Safire detailed a series of situations where Hillary Clinton was caught...
  • Dyson: Winsome Sears Is a ‘Black Mouth Moving,’ Justifying GOP’s ‘White Supremacist Legacy’

    Vanderbilt University professor Michael Eric Dyson said Thursday on MSNBCs “The ReidOut” that Republican Winsome Sears, who was elected lieutenant governor on Tuesday in Virginia, is a “black mouth moving” that is “speaking on behalf of a white supremacist legacy” of the GOP. Host Joy Reid said, “What Republicans are now doing is they basically demand credit any time any of them ever voted for anybody black or if there’s a black guy on the Supreme Court that’s conservative. Any black conservative is supposedly or the black president having ever been elected, right? The fact that he was elected, period,...

    Republicans debating what they should stand for often invoke Ronald Reagan as the ideal standard-bearer for the party. It’s a shame, then, that so many of them misunderstand the man. Reagan’s legacy is often articulated as a simple, policy-focused creed. Former Wisconsin governor Scott Walker immediately summarized that creed during a recent interview: “limited government, low taxes, strong national defense.” But Walker — who now heads the Young America’s Foundation, which owns the Reagan Ranch and the president’s boyhood home — also noted that these are timeless principles rather than ironclad prescriptions.

    Joe Biden went to Philadelphia on Tuesday and embarrassed himself. This was promoted as a soaring speech about voting rights but turned out to be a pathetic defense of why Biden deserves to be in the Oval Office. Let’s go to the videotape: Biden said “Audits, recounts were conducted in Arizona, in Wisconsin. In Georgia, it was recounted three times.” claiming that these actions somehow prove that his election was legitimate. Wrong. The Wisconsin audit of just two counties, Milwaukee and Dane, showed over 200,000 unlawful ballots in an election decided by just about 20,000. The Maricopa County, Arizona audit...
  • It's no conspiracy. Legacy of late-night radio legend Art Bell is at stake in NJ lawsuit

    What’s unfolding in a New Jersey court might confound even the late-night radio legend and king of conspiracies Art Bell. In one corner is David Rubini, a fast-talking on-air talent with a Texas twang, who styles himself a former protégé of Bell’s and his disciple on the radio mic. Rubini’s nemesis, Michael Marshalek of Hoboken, is a conspiracy-radio fan turned anti-face-mask crusader. Of late, he faces charges for allegedly holding his 5-year-old son captive during a police standoff over COVID restrictions.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday said President Biden’s “daydreams” of a “sweeping socialist legacy” will “never happen” — responding to the White House’s proposal for a $1.8 trillion social spending and tax hike plan. The “American Families Plan” would finance universal preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds and free community college, as well as subsidize child care and 12 weeks of paid sick and family leave.

    Detroit’s marijuana ordinance took a long time to create and could take less time to undo, if a lawsuit challenging it succeeds. The lawsuit seeks to invalidate Detroit’s carefully constructed retail marijuana licensing program designed to ensure city residents aren’t shut out by deep-pocketed outsiders before any recreational cannabis business opens its doors. Prospective marijuana business owner Crystal Lowe in a civil lawsuit filed in Wayne County Circuit Court on Tuesday, March 2 claims the program’s preferential residency requirements are illegal, a violation of both the state and federal constitutions. If successful, Detroit leaders, who’ve already received criticism for being...

    Cancel culture is empowering a new infrastructure that will challenge the dominance of legacy cultural institutions. Corporations are using their power to enforce radical cultural standards—imported into their boardrooms from academia—on the rest of the country. Look no further than the last few days at Disney for evidence. The effect, however, is to empower a new infrastructure that will challenge the dominance of legacy cultural institutions.Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Disney-owned ABC aired a sympathetic report about OnlyFans, endorsing pornography as empowerment without any pushback whatsoever. Then Disney’s Lucasfilms dropped Gina Carano from “The Mandalorian” over a clumsy anti-woke meme she...

    Source: Official White House Photo by Shealah Craighead>Much has been written and discussed recently about what will be the legacy of the Trump administration. The political media and left-wing activists are feverishly at work writing their version in the hope that it will be accepted by the public as common knowledge. It is unsurprisingly the most negative version possible, with allegations of inciting violence in the Capitol building and long ago-debunked tales of Russian collusion. This is nonsense. The most enduring legacy of the Trump administration will be the construction of 450 miles of new wall at our southern border....

    i keep hearing that there is a way for pence to declare many of the EC votes fraudulent. if pence is given the exclusive responsibility to "count" the votes, then even if alternative state EC slate votes are not formally "delivered" to pence, what if anything would prevent pence from inventing a new concept such as "senate presidential notice" and applying it on the fly to the 2020 election, voiding sufficient EC slates of some corrupt swing states such that the election is thrown to congress? a rule of thumb i have often heard in engineering is that the cost...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday praised President Donald Trump, who he has repeatedly criticized throughout the president’s time in office, for his Operation Warp Speed amid the coronavirus pandemic. Operation Warp Speed is a fast-tracked effort to find a vaccine for the virus in record time. Scarborough noted Trump has had “repeated failures” throughout the pandemic but said if Operation Warp Speed plays out as the pharmaceutical companies believe it will, then the president’s legacy regarding the vaccine “will be a very positive one.
