Sundays With Stendhal … Revived

Sundays With Stendhal … Revived

‘What are you dreaming of, sir?’ Mathilde asked him. ? There was a note of intimacy in her question, and she had come back running and was quite out of breath in her eagerness to be with him. ? Julian was tired of self-suppression. ? In a moment of pride, he told frankly what he was thinking. The Red and the Black (C.K. Scott Moncrieff transl.), Book II, Chapter 40. Long…

Profs. John McGinnis & Michael Rappaport Guest-Blogging This Coming Week

Profs. John McGinnis & Michael Rappaport Guest-Blogging This Coming Week

I’m delighted to report that Profs. John McGinnis & Michael Rappaport will be guest-blogging this coming week about their new book, Originalism and the Good Constitution . Both are among the most prominent originalist scholars in America, and their book sounds extremely interesting; here is a summary: Originalism holds that the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted according to its meaning at the time it was enacted. In their innovative defense of originalism, John McGinnis and Michael Rappaport maintain that the text of the Constitution should be adhered to by the Supreme Court because it was enacted by supermajorities — both its original enactment under Article VII …

Hoffer is Confused About the Implications of Falsifying Climate Models

Hoffer is Confused About the Implications of Falsifying Climate Models

At Watts Up With That, David M. Hoffer has an odd essay on peer review : [I]s the notion of climate science today as easily falsified by simple observation? I submit that it is. We have the climate models themselves to upon which to rely. For what are the climate models other than the embodiment of the peer reviewed science? Is there…

The year in reading

The year in reading

(Paul Mirengoff) Scott has done a great job handling the year-end list department. But I thought I would add Tevi Troy’s discussion of his year of reading. Tevi offers praise for two books about the 2012 presidential race — Mark Halperin’s Double Down and Dan Balz’s Collision 2012 . As much as I respect Tevi, I’m going to pass on these two works The 2012 campaign was too painful, and I could never read a book called Double Down. I do intend to read Peter Baker’s Days of Fire , for which Tevi offers high praise and…

Who Had the Worst Year?

Who Had the Worst Year?

(Steven Hayward) If you go by John Podhoretz (and you’d be wise always to do so), or the National Enquirer (“ Obama: ‘Everybody Hates Me!’ ”) Obama had the worst 2013.? But a clear rival would have to be the climate change crusade.? The Daily Caller sets out the “ seven global warming alarmist setbacks of 2013 ” including sharply rebounding Arctic ice, record low temperatures (but wait!—record high temperatures this week! proof that we’re doomed!), another busted UN climate conference, and credible new forecasts for a period of …

Verse for Sunday: “On the Vnion”

Verse for Sunday: “On the Vnion”

WHEN was there contract better driven by Fate, Or celebrated with more truth of state? The world the temple was, the priest a king, The spoused pair two realms, the sea the ring. -Ben Jonson (1613). The poem was apparently occasioned by comments by James I at the opening of Parliament in 1604, following the Union with Scotland: “What God hath conioyned then, let no man separate. I am the husband, and

Uncovered docs: IRS flagged groups in 2011 based on ‘anti-Obama rhetoric’

Uncovered docs: IRS flagged groups in 2011 based on ‘anti-Obama rhetoric’

**Written by Doug Powers Under Lois Lerner (who taxpayers are still sending paychecks to by the way), things at the “apolitical” IRS got incredibly partisan, as evidenced in this update to a “phony scandal” : Newly uncovered IRS documents show the agency flagged political groups based on the content of their literature, raising concerns specifically about “anti-Obama rhetoric,” inflammatory language and “emotional” statements made by non-profits seeking tax-exempt status. The internal 2011 documents, obtained by USA TODAY, list 162 groups by name, with comments by Internal Revenue Service lawyers in Washington raising issues about their political, lobbying and advocacy activities. In 21 cases, those activities …
