    President Donald Trump plans to leave Washington, D.C., after a farewell ceremony on the morning of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony, according to reports. The president is expected to leave the White House either aboard Marine One or by motorcade for the last time Wednesday morning before Biden’s inauguration. Trump’s farewell ceremony will take place at Joint Base Andrews, where Air Force One is stationed. The full details of the ceremony have not been set.

    Joe Biden can be heard on the Nixon tapes. President Nixon called Mr. Biden on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 1972. The president had returned from Camp David, where he had been planning an ambitious second-term government reorganization. Delaware’s Sen.-elect Biden had narrowly defeated a popular incumbent and Nixon ally, Caleb Boggs, 13 days before his 30th birthday. He became the second-youngest person ever elected to the Senate. Nixon—who won Delaware by more than 20 points in his 49-state landslide—took note of this rising star, who had flipped a GOP Senate seat. “If I had gone to Delaware, it wouldn’t have changed...
  • This is my concern. (vanity)

    Nixon ran against JFK back in 1960. And there was strong evidence of Democrat voter fraud, particularly in Illinois and West Virginia. Nixon’s advisers told him not to contest the election. They said it would tear the country apart. Nixon took that advice, and stood down. Will Trump stand down in 2020? No way! But the courts just might stand down, in a misguided decision to not “tear the country apart”. That is my concern.

    In the wake of President Donald Trump sounding the alarm on potential voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) on Friday accused Democrats of stealing elections for a long time. Blagojevich told Newsmax TV’s “John Bachman Now” that Democratic stronghold cities changing vote counts overnight, and controlling polling places is a “time-honored tradition.” He went on to say that Democrats “stealing the presidency” is “incredibly dangerous to our democracy.”

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) chastised President Trump for “recklessly inflaming destructive and dangerous passions. Even if his claim of a stolen election is true, raising that issue at this late date threatens our democracy. Democratic cheating is, as former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) points out, ‘a time-honored tradition.’ Saner Republicans have long realized that this is something we must learn to live with lest we fatality undermine the unity necessary for Democrats to govern.” “Back in the 1960 election, Richard Nixon was aware that the election was marred by fraudulent votes in Illinois, but decided that for the good...
  • 1968's presidential election looks a lot like today's – but it was very different

    (THE CONVERSATION) In this year’s presidential election, terms such as “law and order” and “the silent majority” have been heard fairly often from Donald Trump and some of his supporters. Those phrases hark back to an earlier presidential election, which took place in 1968. That one was a three-way affair involving former Vice President Richard Nixon, a Republican; incumbent Vice President Hubert Humphrey, a Democrat; and the third-party candidacy of a Southern segregationist, Alabama Gov. George Wallace.

    A set of newly declassified White House tapes reveal in stark detail President Richard Nixon’s deep antipathy towards India and Indians, which, fanned by his National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger, determined United States policy towards New Delhi in the early 1970s. At a meeting with a group of senior officials in the Oval Office on June 17, 1971, Nixon disparaged Indian women as the “most unattractive women in the world”, and Indians as the “most sexless” and “pathetic” people.

    In an interview with Mark Levin on Sunday on Fox News's Life, Liberty, and Levin, Pompeo discussed the Trump administration's approach to foreign policy with a focus on its adversaries and discussed China's growing influence. "I think political leadership has failed the American people in this regard for many, many years, misunderstanding what it was that the Chinese Communist Party has as its intention," Pompeo said. "In America, sometimes we discount these things. Just listen to what General Secretary Xi Jinping says, and you can predict and watch what the Chinese actions are likely to be." Pompeo also disagreed with...

'I think that you are one of this country's great men, and it was an honor to spend an evening with you,' Trump writes to Nixon in June 1982, less than eight years after Nixon resigned the presidency during the Watergate scandal. The two had been spotted together at the '21' nightclub and Trump was writing Nixon to thank him for forwarding a photo....

    Among the multitudes that America used to contain were Whittaker Chambers and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. A few months ago I happened to reread both Chambers’ autobiography Witness and Schlesinger’s Journals 1952-2000 one after the other. These two men are of different generations: Chambers lived from 1901 to 1961 and Schlesinger 1917 to 2007. They are of completely different temperaments, milieus, politics, and tastes. But there are some fascinating overlaps that have some bearing on the difficult passage we are traversing today as a nation.

    Is Donald Trump summoning his inner Richard Nixon? One could draw that conclusion from the Trump administration’s recent announcement that it is withdrawing 2,000 U.S. troops from Iraq – more than one-third of the total deployed – which follows a similar statement on the exit of one-third of some 36,000 troops from Germany. That, in turn, followed announced troop withdrawals from Afghanistan in June, reductions from Syria, ongoing threats to remove U.S. troops from South Korea and implied threats to Japan as well if Tokyo doesn’t contribute more to the U.S. presence there of some 50,000 troops.

    Donald Trump has warned that if Joe Biden replaces him as president the suburbs will be flooded with low-income housing. He has backed supporters who have sometimes violently clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters across the country. The US president has even refrained from directly condemning the actions of a teenager charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. And Trump has also called the BLM movement a “symbol of hate”. With such rhetoric, the president is taking a page or two out of the 1960s “southern strategy”: the playbook Republican politicians such as Richard Nixon and Barry Goldwater used...

    I was gob stopped. As a young man I was just as brainwashed by the media as anyone else.This began with listening to an interview of overturner of idols, Thomas Sowell, on how vain and puffed up intellectuals are. Thomas Sowell on his book Intellectuals and Society, queue at 24:13 / 36:32 Prof. Sowell was remarking that Nixon didn't care about intellectuals, but according to the true principle, that when a democratic country led around by the nose by academics, decides that a war is unwinnable, it becomes so; despite America's de facto !!!VICTORY!!! in Vietnam, when intellectuals managed to...

    The coronavirus pandemic has drawn attention to the struggle American parents face accessing high-quality and affordable child care for children under 5. Under stay-at-home orders, the majority of child-care facilities have closed their doors — some perhaps permanently — and many centers permitted to reopen are ill-equipped to bear the additional costs of adhering to local and state guidelines. Many working parents, particularly mothers, have been forced out of work to provide care for their children in this absence. The child-care industry is not only essential to providers’ and parents’ livelihoods, but to the economy as a whole. At the...

    Veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein urged Republican leaders in Congress to abandon President Trump and force him to abdicate his powers as president three months out from Election Day. During an appearance Friday on CNN, Bernstein hearkened back to the Watergate scandal, describing how a trio of influential Republicans — 1964 presidential nominee Sen. Barry Goldwater, Senate Minority Leader Hugh Scott, and House Minority Leader John Rhodes — went to the White House in 1974 to tell President Richard Nixon he did not have the support in Congress to survive impeachment, after which he resigned. "Something similar is needed now....

    Chicago native Jill Wine-Banks broke many barriers as an attorney in a male-dominated and often sexist arena. But perhaps her greatest battle was as a tough-questioning prosecutor in the Watergate case that helped bring an end to the presidency of Richard Nixon. We spoke with Wine-Banks on “Chicago Tonight” earlier this year after the release of her memoir “The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against a Criminal President.” (Watch part two of our conversation here.) Wine-Banks said she was initially hesitant to use the word “girl” in the title, but realized that it accurately conveyed the sexism...
  • Trump's Heavy-Handed Reaction to Police Brutality Protests Belies Promise of 'Law and Order'

    Donald Trump, whose 2016 presidential campaign was consciously modeled after Richard Nixon's 1968 run, seems to think he can win reelection by emulating his predecessor's appeal to a "silent majority" disgusted by raucous anti-war protests. Trump is offering voters a choice between his firm hand and the pusillanimity of "liberal Democrats" who let "violent anarchists" run wild in the streets. Notwithstanding Trump's pose as "your president of law and order," his heavy-handed reaction to the protests triggered by George Floyd's death represents neither. In response to largely peaceful demonstrations against police brutality that have been punctuated by criminal behavior, he...

    Now that we’re in the book-burning stage of the revolution, Black Lives Matter has managed to cancel one of the most historically significant films in American history. And in doing so, they have all but erased the film career of the first black Oscar winner. Nice going, idiots! What’s your next trick going to be? Burning down all the grocery stores in black neighborhoods? Oh, wait… During the ongoing streaming wars that have been happening under the radar, entertainment companies are gobbling up the rights to classic films. Each company hopes that its exclusive content will be enough reason for...

    Newly released documents written by Peter Strzok in 2017 proving that former President Barack Obama was active in the scheme to undermine the Trump Administration prompted House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerrod Nadler (D-NY) to demand an end to the coup investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham. "James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok, and all the rest were working at the explicit direction of President Obama," Nadler said. "Whatever so-called crimes they may have committed under orders from the President were fully authorized. President Obama is immune because as President Nixon pointed out, under the Constitution if...

    Most people hold that since former President Richard M. Nixon resigned from office as president before the full House of Representatives could vote on the articles of impeachment, he therefore was not impeached. But they omit the House vote 12 days after he resigned. There were two votes on impeachment by the full House of Representatives. The first, Feb. 6, 1974, was a vote 410 for and 4 against, authorizing impeachment proceedings against Nixon which allowed the House Judiciary Committee to begin the formal inquiry. Talk of such had preceded this vote for several months. Thereafter, following six months of...
