Richard Epstein Nails It

by Richard A. Epsteinvia Powerline
Monday, September 17, 2018

I often quip that Richard Epstein is the smartest man in America, or at the very least that I wish I could be half as lucid as he is at his present age (75)—heck, I’d take being half as lucid as he is at my current age.

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

In the last 2 months, I’ve read 6 books about the attack on the Zam Zam in April 1941. It was the ship my uncle Fred Henderson and aunt Jamie Henderson were on when they were heading to the Belgian Congo to be medical missionaries. It was attacked and sunk by the German raider Atlantis and they, along with all the other ship’s passengers and crew were taken prisoner, transferred to the Dresden, and sent to occupied France.

Exactly what sort of report this may be is unclear. But to the extent that Mueller is contemplating a referral to Congress of possible impeachment material, he has two historical models of such documents to draw on.

“But you support the Common Core!” So said Laura Jimenez of the Center for American Progress on the Education Gadfly Show podcast when I argued that it was a mistake to peg high school graduation standards to the “college-ready” level.

The 9/11 Attacks Were No Pearl Harbor

Friday, September 14, 2018

Comparing the jihadist attacks on September 11, 2001 to the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor has become a staple of commentary on the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. Google this topic and nearly half a million links will pop up; google “lesson plans” and you’ll get nearly five million hits. In the catalogue of historical analogies, the comparison of 9/11 to 12/7 is perhaps the most popular outside the historians’ guild.

As readers will recall, Duke history professor Nancy MacLean wrote a widely-publicized book, Democracy in Chains, that purports to be an intellectual history of the late public choice economist James Buchanan, and his asserted vast influence on current American politics. Critics, most but not all of them libertarians intimately familiar with Buchanan's life and legacy, have been harshly dismissive.
