Imagine

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Powerline
Sunday, January 27, 2019

As we have noted a time or two before, one labors to imagine what politics might be like if the mainstream media treated Democrats like it treats Republicans. Timothy Groseclose invited us to try in his invaluable book Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind — but the media ignored the book. The media treatment of Groseclose’s book vividly illustrates its thesis.

Justice Antonin Scalia discusses the premise of his book, Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges.

This week on Uncommon Knowledge, Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia visits for a wide-ranging interview on subjects including the living Constitution, Roe v. Wade, Congress’s relationship to the Court, and his new book, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts. “I think it took the American people a while to figure out what was going on, maybe 30 years. Once they have figured out that the Supreme Court is essentially rewriting the Constitution term by term, the old criteria for appointing and confirming judges no longer applies.” (48:47)

This week on Uncommon Knowledge President George W. Bush discusses postpresidential life and his work at the Bush Institute. (1:03:21)
“I believe we are a blessed nation; that is, therefore, we have a sense of responsibility to the extent we can to help others. In this case there was a pandemic destroying an entire generation of people. And I didn’t see how I could be president of a powerful, the most powerful, and the richest nation and not lend our support to saving lives. It would have been unconscionable not to act. So I thought it was in our moral interest to act. I also knew it was in our national security interest to act.”
