Podcast #698: The Secrets of Public Speaking From History’s Greatest Orators

Despite the fact that public speaking remains an important and relevant skill in our modern age — you never know when you’ll need to give a toast at a wedding, pitch an idea at work, or champion a proposal at a city council meeting — most of us get very little instruction these days in how to do it effectively. Fortunately, my guest says, we can look to the great orators of the past to get the public speaking education we never received. His name is John Hale, and he’s professor of archeology...

Michael McConnell and the N word

In one of his classes at Stanford Law School this past May, Prof. Michael McConnell read from a historical quotation that included the N word.  (The quotation’s accuracy is disputed; more on that below.)  When criticized by Stanford students and faculty for it, he explained that he “make[s] it a priority in [his] class to emphasize issues of racism and slavery in the formation of the Constitution, and directly quote many statements by supporters and opponents of slavery.”  He went on to explain:...

James Baldwin Talks About Racism in America & Civil Rights Activism on The Dick Cavett Show (1969)

There are many reasons, some quite literal, that it can be painful to talk about racism in the U.S. For one thing, it often seems that writers like W.E.B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Angela Davis, Audre Lorde, or James Baldwin, have already confronted questions of racial violence without hedging or equivocation. Yet each time racist violence happens, there seems to be a decorous need in politics and media to pretend to be surprised by what's right in front of us, to pretend to have discovered...

Coronavirus fears used to justify unjustified overreach: Ron Paul

A Fresno, California waffle restaurant dared to open its doors for business this weekend to the delight of a long line of customers, who waited up to two hours for the “privilege” of willingly spending their money in a business happy to serve them breakfast on Mother’s Day. This freedom of voluntary transaction is the core of what we used to call our free society. But in an America paralyzed by fear – ramped up by a mainstream media that churns out propaganda at a level unparalleled in history –...

‘You Never Find Quiet Except Under a Tyranny.’ Congress Has Always Been Partisan and That’s a Good Thing.

In the throes of the worst crisis in American history, the Civil War, Democrats in Congress repeatedly attacked Abraham Lincoln as a “tyrant” and even his fellow Republicans questioned his competence and investigated his generals. Beleaguered though he often felt, Lincoln never claimed that Congress lacked the authority to challenge his actions or declined to answer legislators’ requests for information. Even in the midst of all-out war, Lincoln recognized Congress as the primary repository...

Slavery Is Neither Strange Nor Peculiar

The Legacy of Slavery U.S.A. –-( The favorite leftist tool for the attack on our nation's founding is that slavery was sanctioned. They argue that the founders disregarded the promises of our Declaration of Independence “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” These very ignorant people, both in and out of academia, want us to believe that slavery is ...

Owner of civil war reenactment business sues school district that canceled field trips after his far-right social media came to light

Riley's Farm is a staple of Los Angeles overnight school trips (my daughter visited last year with her elementary school); it's an apple farm with a pick-your-own apples sideline that branched out into civil war re-enactments, with some students staying overnight in tents. The farm's owner, James Riley, uses his Facebook and Twitter accounts to air Trumpian political views that complain about "black supremacy" ("If there's a problem in America today, it's BLACK supremacy.

United States – -( When we discussed how our support for the Second Amendment comes across, one of the items mentioned was the importance of maintaining your credibility.

Whicker: UCLA needs a new hoop coach, and maybe someone new to find him

The Wasserman Football Center and the Mo Ostin Basketball Center stand majestically on the south side of campus, twin towers of student-athletic extravagance. Now that another coach has gotten the big haircut, they’re just over-the-top barber shops. Patrick Henry was the first to say, “Give me Liberty or give me the buyout,” but Steve Alford was the second. After an eyesore loss to Jerry Falwell’s university on Saturday that had Alford pledging to make his young Bruins practice “seventh-grade st...

If our founders sat on the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings

In advance of Brett Kavanaugh’s September confirmation hearings, leading Democrats are reiterating accusations and rhetoric used last year against Neil Gorsuch’s nomination. In particular, a substantial list of Democratic Senators have publicly announced their opposition because he was “not in the mainstream” or failed to support certain precedents they like. They have also gone further, dragging their feet by refusing to meet with him and demanding unheard of mountains of paperwork (after annou...

The Second Amendment Had Nothing To Do With Slavery

Stephen Halbrook: For 20 years now, a well-meaning law professor has been peddling the fiction that the Second Amendment – guaranteeing the right of Americans to keep and bear arms – was adopted to protect slavery. He first proposed this in a 1998 law review article and trotted it out again in a recent New York Times op-ed. The trouble is: It’s untrue. Not a single one of America’s founders is known to have suggested such a purpose. When the Redcoats came to disarm the colonists, the American p...
