  • Biden: I Hope My Legacy Is I ‘Did What I Said’ — I Ran for Office to ‘Reduce the Prospect of War’ after Vietnam

    During an interview with Univision that took place last Wednesday and aired on Tuesday, President Joe Biden said that he hopes his legacy is that he kept his word and did what he said he would do and that the reason he ran for office “was to help the life of ordinary people and reduce the prospect of war and — because of Vietnam.” Interviewer Enrique Acevedo asked, “Do you think a lot about legacy, because we’re talking about over 50 years of public service, and, regardless of the outcome, this might be your last political campaign, you’ve done a...
  • Biden’s New EV Mandate Is A ‘Bloodbath’ For Consumers, Carmakers, And The ‘Climate’

    The EPA is rolling out stringent tailpipe rules correctly described as an ‘electrical vehicle mandate in disguise.’ As spring begins, let us think back to an icy time in January when Tesla owners were stranded because their electric vehicle batteries flatlined in the subzero temps and many charging stations were dead or dying. “I’ve been here for over five hours at this point, and I still have not gotten to charge my car,” Tesla driver Brandon Welbourne told CBS Chicago. “A charge that should take 45 minutes is taking two hours.” Spring forward and the enviro-extremist Biden administration is rolling...

    The Washington, D.C., City Council's vote to pass a sweeping public safety bill can't change one member's "legacy of failure" or restore lives lost in the District's surging crime crisis, a campaign to recall the Democrat told Fox News. All but one councilmember on Tuesday voted in favor of the Secure D.C. Omnibus Amendment Act, which includes a swath of measures aimed at curbing surging crime, amid outcries from fed-up business owners and residents. The urgent response comes as two Democrats who voted in favor of the bill, Councilmembers Brianne Nadeau and Charles Allen, face recall efforts over their criminal...

  • Kissinger's corrosive legacy still weighs on U.S. policy in Asia

    12/23/2023 6:50:33 PM PST · by FarCenter · 10 replies
    Henry Kissinger's biggest diplomatic achievement -- orchestrating America's opening to China -- led to a 45-year U.S. policy of aiding Beijing's economic rise which, in turn, created the greatest strategic adversary Washington has ever faced. The costs of this approach included empowering a more aggressive and expansionist China and perpetuating Communist Party rule. When strongman Deng Xiaoping brutally crushed a student-led, pro-democracy movement in Beijing in 1989 through the military assault that came to be known as the Tiananmen Square massacre, Kissinger opposed imposing sanctions on China. "China remains too important to U.S. national security to risk the relationship on...

    Family meetings have long been a practice for wealthy families like the Rockefellers (who hold them twice a year). But with more complex issues facing families that affect family members’ time, money, and wishes, it is a good practice for every family to undertake, regardless of their wealth. Spending a great deal of my time helping individuals and loved ones prepare for future challenges, as well as having personally been through the deaths of parents and caring for an aging father-in-law, I know firsthand how important it is to talk through these issues with your family. Here are three topics...
  • RIP: To understand Coach Bob Knight solely as a hero or a villain is to miss the instructive value of his life.

    To understand Bob Knight solely as a hero or a villain is to miss the instructive value of his life.The passing of Bob Knight invites us to navigate the intricate labyrinth of a legacy, replete with towering achievements and troubling missteps. Here was a man who commanded both the basketball court and the cultural conversation with a blend of brazen certainty and complicated human frailty. He was, in essence, a vivid embodiment of the American paradox: a culture that idolizes both rugged individualism and collective accomplishment.Bob Knight was nothing if not a traditionalist. In an era awash with moral relativism,...

    And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. – Matthew 6:5When word came that Jimmy Carter, age 98, was entering hospice care, the predictable plaudits began to pour in. Calling Carter “an inspiration,” Maria Shriver gushed that he “moves humanity forward every single day.” Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) described Carter as having always “walked with God.” Rocker Nils Lofgren called him “[a]s fine a man and soul as I’ve ever seen.” And Steve...
  • The Nixon legacy has lessons for Biden and today’s GOP

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
