by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall Review
Friday, September 6, 2019

CNN's Insane Town Hall Posse

quoting Niall Fergusonvia Powerline
Friday, September 6, 2019
It used to be that those who peddled apocalypse sporting their placards in the service of some cult on a flyblown city corner were an object of amusement. One could compile a book of cartoons with variations on the theme. Now the theme has become Democratic Party orthodoxy. The Democratic presidential candidates must all bow before it, as they did earlier this week in the course of CNN’s “climate change town hall.”

Thursday, September 5, 2019

Arnold Kling, an EconLog mainstay, posted this morning with a link to his mother’s fascinating testimony before a St. Louis meeting of the famous House Unamerican Activities Committee.
