Make Columbus Day Great Again. Stephen Kruiser – “Christopher Columbus was one of the first victims of Cancel Culture before it was even called Cancel Culture.”

“Now I’m supposed to celebrate “Indigenous Peoples Day,” … There is also the fact that many of them weren’t any nicer than Columbus, so if we’re canceling people for being awful, they’re as cancel-worthy as our intrepid Italian.

The Strategies of Targeting Trump. Victor Davis Hanson – “We are headed for a train wreck. No one knows for certain which outcome is most likely.”

“After failing with the voting machine gambit, the Logan Act, the 25th Amendment, the emoluments clause, the McCabe-Rosenstein faux-coup, the Comey memos farce, the “resistance” efforts outlined by the New York Times anonymous op-ed writer, the campaign finance violations accusations, Stormy, tax returns, whistleblowers, leakers, the Mueller 22 months charade, and now impeachment 2.0, what exactly is the point of impeaching Trump just 13 months before the election?

There doesn’t have to be a point to impeachment. Democrats loathe Trump. That is enough.

Sane observers see impeachment as a travesty without either moral or legal grounds to justify removing an elected president 13 months before the 2020 election. But sanity means nothing these days, given the hatred of Trump, the volatility of the electorate, and the furious bias of the media.

But I think the piece worth highlighting today is from the Wall Street Journal editorial board, who, like Matt Drudge (have you seen the Drudge Report lately?), appears to have had it with the dunce cap model in the Oval:” This one is from Patterico and illustrates the nonsense in ad hominem judgment that defies reality. “Dunce cap” for a man who won a presidential election and then had such a positive impact on the economy and international trade? Then there’s the vox populi [Merriam-Webster] logical fallacy … With so many blinded like this, is it any wonder Trump wins?

Democrats ratchet up impeachment secrecy. Byron York – “A week ago, House Republicans complained that Democrats imposed excessive secrecy on interviews conducted as part of the drive to impeach President Trump. Now, the situation appears to have gotten worse.

“In his much-criticized letter to Congress, White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Democratic handling of the impeachment investigation “violates fundamental fairness.” He meant fairness toward the target of the proceeding, President Trump. But there is also the question of fairness toward the American people trying to follow an impeachment process shrouded in secrecy. Don’t they have the right to know what the president’s accusers say?

 

Scientists Gone Mad. J. Frank Bullitt – “Worse, they’re ignorant, and overly willing dupes. They’ve fallen for what is so obviously an exaggeration if not an outright fraud. And they should be, as British columnist Brendan O’Neill suggests, “criticized and ridiculed out of existence.”

Glyphosate Doesn’t Cause Cancer. It Saves Native Ecosystems. Ted Williams – “Misinformation has created a lucrative business for ambulance-chasing lawyers and NGOs.” What’s this doing on Slate?
