1964

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is signed into law after three civil rights workers were murdered in Mississippi but this did not stop the violence as it continued to increase in many American Cities. US Congress authorizes war against N Vietnam as more American servicemen were dying. LBJ was returned to power after a landslide victory. This was also the year The Beatles took the world and America by storm and Beatlemania went into overdrive as they released a series of number one hits including “I want to hold your hand” , “All my Loving.” The Beatles hold the top five positions in the Billboard Top 40 singles in America. Other British groups also found success including The Rolling Stones and The Animals and together with the American Talent of The Supremes and Bob Dylan many say this was one of the greatest years for music in the last century.

The Speech that Launched Ronald Reagan into National Prominence: "A Time for Choosing"

The Speech that Launched Ronald Reagan into National Prominence: “A Time for Choosing”

Many versions of the speech exist, since it was altered over many weeks. Contrary to popular belief, however, the speech was not given at the 1964 Republican National Convention in San Francisco, California as a nomination speech for presidential candidate Senator Barry Goldwater; Richard Nixon gave that nomination speech. Reagan, though he campaigned for Goldwater, did not use "A Time for Choosing" until October 27, 1964, when it was part of ...

On October 12, 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer, a Washington socialite, went for her usual jog along the Potomac River in a fairly deserted section of Washington DC and, for no apparent reason, she was shot twice at close range. She was neither raped nor robbed. A witness, who heard screaming and shots ran to an embankment overlooking the scene, arrived in time to see a black ...

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident: A Fake Attack on a 2nd U.S. Ship that was Used to Infuriate Americans and Gain their Support for the Vietnam War

A false claim in 1964 that a 2nd US ship was attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin. This was reported to infuriate Americans and deceive them that an attack on Vietnam (officially starting the Vietnam War with Congressional approval) was necessary. The NSA admits that it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 … manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats ...

Barry Goldwater's Speech Accepting the Republican Presidential Nomination

Barry Goldwater’s Speech Accepting the Republican Presidential Nomination

“Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice” was the biggest applause line of Barry Goldwater’s speech accepting his party’s nomination as a presidential candidate. It is probably also the most misunderstood, ripped-out-of-context line in a speech that stands, even today, as a succinct definition of conservatism. Surprisingly, in 3,186 words, Goldwater never used any form of the word “conservative” in this famous speech. This stood ...

Civil Rights Act of 1964 Becomes Law

Civil Rights Act of 1964 Becomes Law

From the May 28, 2012, issue of NR. This magazine has long specialized in debunking pernicious political myths, and Jonah Goldberg has now provided an illuminating catalogue of tyrannical clichés, but worse than the myth and the cliché is the outright lie, the utter fabrication with malice aforethought, and my nominee for the worst of them is the popular but indefensible belief that the two major U.S ...

NY Times v. Sullivan Decision: The 1st Amendment Prohibits Damages to Public Figures for Defamation unless Resulting from “Actual Malice”

The 1964 decision in New York Times v. Sullivan has since protected many media outlets from lawsuits in spite of their intentional 'hit pieces.' D.C. Circuit Court Judge Laurence Silberman,  a Reagan appointee, outlined his opposition to the Supreme Court’s key decision when he  wrote in a March 19, 2021 decision that the ruling is “a threat to American Democracy” and must be overturned. “The increased power of the ...
