A tantrum of misdirection

Why Obama deserves a little credit for the Trump Boom, and why the Democrats will never admit it by Thomas Lifson – “the very reason his claim is false actually did help make the Trump Boom more pronounced.”

“That backlog was available for investment, once President Trump cleared away the shackles. Without 8 years of suppression, there would not have been as big a backlog of good projects waiting for realization.

If course, Dems will never admit that Obama suppressed economic growth, and that helped Trump look even better. It’s analogous to the relief the apocryphal man hitting his head with a hammer feels once he stops. The absence of harm makes what follows feel even better.

The University Is Ripe for Replacement by David Solway – “my concern is with the abandonment of genuine scholarship, fact-based historical research, familiarity with the “Great Books” and the development of critical thinking habits, particularly in the humanities and social sciences.

“Beginning in early K-12 and continuing to the highest levels of university education, Leftist indoctrination is the gravest dilemma that afflicts education in North America, rendering it perhaps the most powerful instrument of anti-Western bias and socialist propaganda of the modern era.

Insuperable as the task may seem, perhaps something truly new will emerge on which, with patience, experience and foresight, we can build. In a time of civilizational decline, a wholly new university may serve to prolong our historical tenure. The key is to resist despair, strategize effectively, remain prepared and remember the principles of moral reason and intellectual excellence on which restitution depends. The modern university it is a moribund institution and cannot be reformed. It is ripe for replacement.

Rough Beasts Slouching toward the White House by Clarice Feldman – “Pardon me for the reference to Yeats’s poem “The Second Coming,” but events this week reminded me of the poem and this line: “the worst are full of passionate intensity.” It’s a a recap of the insanity on the Left concluding, hoping, … 

“Should I be wrong about the disgust rational people should bear against Trump’s political enemies, and the Democrats retake the House, they have no chance to impeach the president. If I’m right, however, like Black, I hope Trump “will grind his heel in the faces of his rabid enemies,” the slouching beasts of chaos. And the president is certainly campaigning around the country, in an unprecedentedly determined way, so I think that’s his plan, too.

Boston Herald Editorial: Elizabeth Warren’s op-ed rant far oversteps bounds – “Elizabeth Warren continues to showcase her activist skill set, but she was elected to be a senator — not a protester.”

“Her latest ploy is to demand the ouster of President Trump in the wake of an op-ed published in The New York Times earlier this week purportedly from a high-level White House insider. The author suggested that there was a “resistance” in the administration working to prevent Trump from following through on dangerous decisions.

This is an irresponsible and alarmist action on behalf of a sitting senator and shows little regard for the truth or accuracy — all in the name of politics.

The voters of the commonwealth deserve a senator who is devoted to their collective plight rather than her own future fortunes. Outlandish protests on the taxpayers’ time are bad enough, but when her politically aimed activism involves entertaining the notion of unseating the commander in chief through a process other than an election, that is sheer recklessness.

Just what is important to the Left, anyway?
