Last year I watch re-enactors play out a skirmish from the War of 1812. So I have questions.

This was in Ohio. Should the British re-enactors have been pepper-sprayed?

And when they re-enacted a battle in Ontario, should the Americans have been punched?


Finally someone in politics showing some moral courage.

I think Trump's response has been distorted and feelings whipped up, and that there’s hysteria loose upon the land, but none of that lessens Trump's responsibility to deal with it as it is. He hasn't, yet. I don’t know if he can succeed. Trump as moral clarion? It’s not plausible.  But, "comes the moment comes the man."  Clinton stepped up after the Oklahoma bombing. Johnson, even worse than Trump really, stepped up after the assassination. Will Trump?

When Did Gladys Kravitz become the role model?


Normally I find this guy over the top, and I guess this is over the top too, but  today it resonates
You simply cannot say, in polite society, “basic fairness requires us to avoid a rush to judgment and to give people the right to respond to accusations.” To do so gets you lumped in with the criminals. Like a friend of mine said, “the only acceptable reaction to an accusation is enthusiastic and unqualified acceptance.”

Contemporary political culture is an autoimmune disorder.

CNN's true colors

CNN is despicable.

CNN now says they kept his identity a secret for his safety. But they only know it because they hunted him down. There would be no issue of exposure had they not decided to find him out. Nice anonymity you got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it.

More from Althouse.

UPDATE. CNN responds:  He was not underage!!
Fake news getting you down? Perhaps you want a retraction?

UPDATER: Here is a timeline with the CNN guy changing his story repeatedly in an attempt to obfuscate his threats.

UPDATERER: The gift that keeps on giving.

And giving. The fake news just keeps coming. and this really is fake news not just an error. Innocent errors would be random. The fake Lincoln quote too.  And the carefully edited handshake video in Poland, made to look like a snub of Trump, was reated by CNN reporters. Cilizza in particular.

RELATED. Not just CNN. Note the dates, long after the AP retraction, the NYT retraction, and the testimony of the DNI that the 17 number was bogus. It's not just an error. She is controverting Trump's assertion without bothering to check.
