Podcast: Keep Cool Like Coolidge w/ Kyle Griesinger

I had the privilege of joining my good friend Remso Martinez on the Remso Republic Podcast to talk about America’s greatest ‘do nothing’ president, Calvin Coolidge. He was a man of few words and fewer actions. Which made him America’s greatest president. An all-around badass, contemporary conservatives would do well to imitate his reservedness, devotion to principle, and devotion to the American creed.

I’ve heard the GOP called a million different things, “the party of Reagan” and “the party of Trump” to name a few. Attaching Reagan to the GOP implies the party stands for one set of ideals that may be different than if you said the party embodied Trump’s populism. The names at the end of the day don’t matter but the ideas do, and at least talk around the water cooler implies libertarians and conservatives are wanting a certain silent president’s method of government to come back. This week I’m joined by Kyle Greisinger from Outset’s Young Guns to discuss how young Republicans are trying to make Calvin Coolidge cool again.

For some fun facts about Coolidge go over to The Republican Standard where you can get additional notes.

“The Testing Time” by Paul Harvey

One of the most distinctive voices in the history of radio, Paul Harvey was, in many respects, the soundtrack of my young life. His broadcasts still echo in my head a decade later. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from George W. Bush. Never has there been anyone more deserving of the honor. His passing was a sad day for me; made sadder by the fact that so few people of my generation knew who he was, had never heard that distinctive “hello Americans” or “this is Paul Harvey, good day.”

I recently came across this recording of a message called “The Testing Time” from the early 1960’s. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

“…And now you know the rest of the story.”
