Article of the Day: Saturday, March 6, 2021

"This formulation was crucial not only for maximizing fear levels about the Democrats’ adversaries but also, as I’ve documented previously, because declaring an “armed insurrection” empowers the state with virtually unlimited powers to act against the citizenry. Over and over, leading Democrats and their media allies repeated this phrase like some hypnotic mantra: But this was completely false. As I detailed several weeks ago, so many of the most harrowing and widespread media claims about the January 6 riot proved to be total fabrications. A pro-Trump mob did not bash Office Brian Sicknick’s skull in with a fire extinguisher. No protester brought zip-ties with them as some premeditated plot to kidnap members of Congress (two rioters found them on a table inside). There’s no evidence anyone intended to assassinate Mike Pence, Mitt Romney or anyone else."

Lockdown Experts Were Wrong

When Capitol Attacks Went Punishless

Indeed, "no one ever was charged with attacking the Capitol" that time.

Are Universities Useless?

"most of all, it is the American university’s abandonment of the search for truth that continues to haunt it today, for the university still is not able to articulate a reason for its existence."
https://lawliberty.org/classic/does-the-american-university-deserve-to-survive/

Forgiving College Debt Favors Upper Middle Class

"College graduates, on average, earn $30,000 more a year than those with high school diplomas, according to research from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Yet Democrats want working-class taxpayers to assume loans that they never co-signed."

Fair Use At Issue in Google v. Oracle

"If SCOTUS decides to overturn the Appeals Court, it will redefine fair use. The new-found fair use standard will be: I can copy anything I think necessary to my work and to the extent possible that I deem it necessary."

Super Soldiers?

"today’s pharmaceutical conglomerates and university-backed researchers are making significant strides toward improving human performance in the private sector. In a truly all-encompassing “super soldier” effort, the research, treatments, and even body modifications found in these other endeavors would almost certainly play a vital role"

Trump CPAC Speech Summarized

Well by the inimitable Conrad Black.
"Trump asserted authority over his party, arraigned the new administration for the complete failure to accomplish anything useful in the first 40 of its vaunted 100 days, and then rolled through the Biden executive orders like a bulldozer."

Dangers of Democrats' Election Reform

"Under the “For the People Act,” every safeguard to protect a secure election process would be permanently stripped away, the American tradition of Election Day gone for good."

2020s Looking Like The 1970s?

"New York City in 2020 experienced an unprecedented one-year increase in homicides and shootings. Through December 27, 2020, the number of murders was up 41 percent from 2019 and 53 percent from 2018. Shooting victims were up 103 percent from 2019 and 109 percent from 2018; shooting incidents rose 97 percent and 104 percent. In gang-ridden precincts, the spike was even more startling. In Brooklyn’s Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods, there were 170 percent more shooting victims in 2020 than in 2019 and 151 percent more shooting incidents. Murder was up 94 percent in these parts of Brooklyn....New York’s slide into lawlessness is mirrored nationwide. The year 2020 likely saw the largest percentage increase in homicides in U.S. history. The local and the national crime increases have the same cause: making the avoidance of disparate impact the guiding principle of law enforcement."

Actual Foreign Interference

Imagine if foreign governments sanctions American officials, including judges, for prosecuting anyone connected the January 6?
