Post-inauguration, restoring the soul of Biden’s America must be truly inclusive

Post-inauguration, restoring the soul of Biden’s America must be truly inclusive Joe Biden has cast his campaign to “restore the soul of America” as an antidote to the turmoil of the Trump presidency. AP Photo/Scott Applewhite Daniel McNeil, Carleton University Over the past few months, I’ve been editing a book about soulful beliefs, practices and feelings that overflow from their religious and spiritual origins into secular and profane spaces. I’ve also been wondering what Joe Biden means when he talks about restoring the soul of America. In a country fatigued by COVID-19, Zoom calls and a president who thought he was entitled to grab the bodies and attention of his fellow Americans, it appears that Biden wants to offer us some solace. A poli...

Joe Biden sends a clear message to the watching world – America’s back

Joe Biden sends a clear message to the watching world – America’s back Scott Lucas, University of Birmingham Politics doesn’t have to be a raging fire destroying everything in its path Two weeks after the storming of the US Capitol by the followers of his predecessor, in the middle of an out-of-control pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans, Joe Biden — the 46th president of the US — tried to contain the blaze in his inaugural address. As aspiration, the speech was pitch perfect. Biden rightly took on the present of America’s most serious domestic crisis since the Civil War. Coronavirus, the Capitol attack, economic loss, immigration, climate change and social injustice were confronted: We’ll press forward with speed and urgency for we have much to do in this winte...

What does the vice president do?

What does the vice president do? It’s a top government job, but what does being vice president mean? AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin Joshua Holzer, Westminster College On Jan. 20, Kamala Harris will become vice president of the United States – the first woman, the first person of South Asian descent, and the first African American to do so. Harris will also become the first vice president to have graduated from a historically black college or university. Each of these achievements is significant in its own right. However, the vice presidency itself has traditionally been a relatively insignificant position, though the office has become more influential in recent years. John Adams, the nation’s first vice pres...

Why do presidential inaugurations matter?

Why do presidential inaugurations matter? An important ceremony: the U.S. Capitol during President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration. AP Photo/Patrick Semansky Dimitris Xygalatas, University of Connecticut As one president’s term ends and another begins, there is a ceremony. Its importance is one of symbolism rather than substance. The Constitution is clear: On Jan. 20, there will be a transfer of power. There is no mention of an inauguration. By definition, ritual acts have no direct effect on the world. A ceremonial event is one that symbolically affirms something that happens by other, more direct means. In this case, the election – not the inauguration – makes the president, although an oath is required before exercising his power. Nonethe...

Why the news media may not want to share Capitol riot images with the police

Why the news media may not want to share Capitol riot images with the police Images taken by the media of the Capitol storming could help law enforcement identify participants. Evelyn Hockstein/For The Washington Post via Getty Images Anthony Fargo, Indiana University The images from the Jan. 6 siege on the United States Capitol will likely be seared into the memories of many Americans. Photographs and video published in print, online and on television showed protesters breaking windows to enter the building, sitting at a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and confronting an outnumbered Capitol police force. However, it may be the unpublished images that will be of most interest to law enforcement agencies as they track down and arre...

Trump supporters seeking more violence could target state capitols during inauguration – here’s how cities can prepare

Trump supporters seeking more violence could target state capitols during inauguration – here's how cities can prepare The FBI says armed protests are planned at all 50 state capitols ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Paul Weaver/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images Jennifer Earl, University of Arizona Americans witnessed an alarming and deadly failure in planning and policing at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The FBI failed to sound intelligence alarms, including about dozens of targets on the terrorist watch list traveling to Washington, D.C. U.S. Park Police, D.C. police and the National Guard, who collectively policed the “Save America” rally that preceded the riot, deviated from common crowd-control techniques by allow...

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon) Henry Giroux, McMaster University Just a week after the U.S. Capitol was attacked by his supporters, Donald Trump has become the first president of the United States to be impeached twice. But regardless of how Trump leaves the White House — the Senate won’t act on the impeachment before Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20 — the domestic terrorism he has inspired will not end there. Democrats in the House of Representatives — as did 10 brave Republicans, none of whom voted in favour of Trump’s first impeachment a year ago — made a compelling case for removing the presid...
