Advanced Praise for The Jazz Age President

“Presidents are ranked wrong. In The Jazz Age President: Defending Warren G. Harding, Ryan Walters mounts a case that Harding deserves to move up — and supplies the evidence to make that case strong. No historian of the 1920s makes the case for Harding after Walters.” – Amity Shlaes, author of Coolidge

“He cut taxes and regulations, got the economy roaring, put America first after years of wearisome globalist utopianism, and for all his efforts was derided as unfit for the job. Ryan Walters’ The Jazz Age President: Defending Warren Harding is a long-overdue defense of the man who was Trump before Trump, a criminally underrated and unjustly maligned president who in a just, America-first ranking, would be regarded as one of America’s greatest presidents. This book is a timely and much-needed salvo in the ongoing war to wrest American history back from the socialist ideologues who have dominated it for too long.” – Robert Spencer, author of Rating America’s Presidents

“Warren Harding is perpetually labeled as one of the ‘bad presidents,’ as a bumbling idiot who couldn’t write a speech, or as a philandering playboy with literal closet affairs, but as Ryan Walters expertly shows, this is unjust. Rather than one of the worst presidents, Harding should be regarded as a man who believed in the original intent of the presidency and who was able to stave off one of the worst economic crises of the twentieth century by doing nothing. You’ll have a new appreciation for Wobbly Warren after reading this book.” – Brion McClanahan is the author of 9 Presidents Who Screwed Up America and Four Who Tried to Save Her

“Warren G. Harding gets no respect, ranked last or nearly last in the academic surveys of presidential performance. But he led America from a wartime to a peacetime economy, ended a chaotic spate of labor and racial strife, nipped in the bud an ominous recession, and generated a rare surge of economic growth. Ryan Walters has produced a much-needed corrective–a sprightly written and thoroughly researched narrative of Harding’s true contributions, which were significant and deserve recognition.” – Robert W. Merry, author of Where They Stand: The American Presidents in the Eyes of Voters and Historians

The Democrat Election “Reform” Bill: We’ve Been Here Before

Congressional Democrats are currently working diligently to pass a major election “reform” bill so that no person’s right to vote can be suppressed, which liberals allege is happening in every election, especially in red states. In order to safeguard this sacred right from those nasty conservatives who are trying to take squash it, Democrats are proposing what is essentially a federal takeover of the electoral process.

But this move is not unprecedented in American history. We’ve been here before, in 1890.

Honoring the White Family

In my latest book, Apollo 1: The Tragedy That Put Us On the Moon, I honor the three fallen astronauts, one of whom was Edward Higgins White II. Ed was a 1952 graduate of the US Military Academy, at a time when prospective Air Force flyers attended West Point. The Air Force Academy did not yet exist until 1954. Ed served in the Air Force until he became an astronaut in 1962. In 1965, he was the first American to walk in space.

Service in America’s military forces was not limited to Ed; the tradition ran strong in the White family.
