A new book is out about how the 1976 election signaled a sea change in American politics. Joining us today is the author of that book, Daniel Williams (westga.edu), Professor of History at the University of West Georgia. He describes the shift in electoral maps, party policies, and the thinking of the country in general that began in 1976 that has resulted in what we’re seeing today. He goes on to chat about the Catholic Church and the changes that have befallen it since the late 1960s.
Are we headed toward Gerald Ford 2.0? Also, why are criminals getting off with a slap on the wrist while right-leaning folks are being prosecuted to the hilt? Joining us today is Pat Nolan, Founder of the Nolan Center for Justice at the American Conservative Union Foundation. He goes into the history of how Gerald Ford became president and how similar events may unfold soon in this administration. He then shares some of his experiences dealing with the FBI and prosecutors. There are underhanded tactics used by social justice warriors in state attorneys offices and law enforcement to take down their political opponents.
