Finding sanctuary

From On High reports from Bland County, one of many Virginia jurisdictions stating their intention to become sanctuary areas for gun control laws coming from the new Democratic majority in Richmond.
Those in attendance - including our sheriff, most of his deputies, and our county administrator - were almost unanimous in their support for the resolution that passed. One woman in the back of the room wanted to know where the petition was for those who opposed the measure, but other than that one lone voice of opposition, the overwhelming majority there supported the Constitution, their homes and their loved ones.

The real climate

Walter Williams compiles data from many years to show the climate isn't warming as the alarmists say it is.
Hot weather is often claimed to be a result of man-made climate change. Heller presents data showing the number of days in Waverly, Ohio, above 90 degrees. In 1895, there were 73 days above 90 degrees. In 1936, there were 82 days above 90 degrees. Since the 1930s, there has been a downward trend in the number of days above 90 degrees. If climatologists hide data from earlier years and started at 1955, they show an increase in the number of above 90-degree days from eight or nine to 30 or 40. Thus, to deceive us into thinking the climate is getting hotter, environmentalists have selected a starting date that fits their agenda.

Either way, Trump wins

Scott Adams has observed that Donald Trump puts himself in positions where he can win either way.
Impeachment is like that.
In the last week, he's said he would testify to Congress and he welcomes impeachment.
What do Democrats do?
They had to assume Trump would not want to be impeached, so they could safely impeach him.
Now he says, go ahead and impeach.
So if they vote to impeach Trump, they are actually doing his bidding.
Whatever they decide, he wins.

Stefanik for the defense

Elise Stefanik's tough questioning during the impeachment inquiry earns the praise of Legal Insurrection.
She cross-examines witnesses the way cross-examination should be done: A tightly controlled examination that does not allow the witness to vary from prior testimony or to deny the obvious.
Armed with the transcript of prior closed-door testimony, Stefanik frames her question so that if the witness varies from prior testimony, Stefanik can reel them back in. She shows that she has papers with her that she is reading from for her precise questions. It’s a signal to the witness that she’s prepared, so don’t mess with her.

Staff meeting

Babylon Bee is cooking again.
In prophetic retaliation, the Chick-fil-A manager threw down his rod, which became a larger serpent, devouring the other two while gagging--a common reaction to eating anything from Popeyes. Arms spread to the awed patrons, the Chick-fil-A manager proclaimed, “Let not your hearts be hardened like unto how tough Popeyes chicken is. For what is that stuff they slather onto their tenders, old Rice Krispies or something?”
“Well at least I’m open on Sundays,” said the dejected Popeyes employee, gathering his trick-staffs from the ground. Reciprocating with a smug, “So is Hell,” Chick-fil-A's prophet retrieved his rod, changed it into a microphone, and dropped it.

Dealing with death

You learn about the deaths of high school classmates and their parents from various places.
Rarely for a blog post based on a New Yorker article as Michael Chabon tells of keeping vigil over his dying father.
Focusing on their bonds over Star Trek, and how he remembers his father.
In the days and months that followed, I tried to find ways to mourn my father. I said Kaddish. I talked about him to my own children. I posted boyhood photos of him to Instagram. But mostly I wrote episodes of “Star Trek: Picard,” through and over which mortality and loss played like musical themes. The truth, I’ve sometimes had the nerve to tell someone who knows how much, in spite of everything, I loved my father, was that I had been grieving his loss since I was twelve years old; it was definitely easier the second time around. When I miss him, I find comfort—just as I did forty-four years ago, when he first left me behind—in his perfect, constant, undiminished presence in my imagination; his voice in my head, anytime I want it; his opinions, his jokes, his enthusiasms and vanities and lies. But sometimes, still, I wake up in the middle of the night, trapped in the broken elevator of insomnia, haunted by the cruelty of mercy and its logic, and by the pleading of the devil in the dark.
At our high school, we did the musical "The Pajama Game" our senior year.
The play's director lost her husband a few days before our performance.
On opening night, she brought a hat that her husband loved to wear. She gave it to Chabon to wear for his character in the show.
It was almost 40 years ago, but the memory came flooding back upon reading his article.

Baltimore's Heisman house

It's rare for an NFL team to have more than one Heisman trophy winner on their roster.
The Baltimore Ravens have three.
And all three were in the backfield for a play Sunday.
Griffin said he had been patiently waiting for the play to be called.
“We’ve been asking for weeks and weeks,” Griffin said. “All of us are pretty dangerous with the ball in our hands. It worked out.”
The razzle-dazzle was part of the Ravens’ third touchdown drive, and it was another example of the creativity being featured in each week’s game plan.

It's a joke, son

Politico finally figures out Trump and his supporters.
They get the joke.
For Trump and his defenders, a little gentle self-mocking does more than just warm up a room. It can neutralize his opponents’ attacks. And it can let Trump off the hook even when he probably isn’t joking, as when Marco Rubio argued last month that Trump was only kidding when he declared that China should investigate Hunter Biden.
But it’s most powerful when it makes his supporters feel that they’re in on Trump’s jokes in a way the establishment isn’t. In a sense, this effect is an extension of the 2016 campaign formulation, likely coined by GOP strategist Brad Todd and popularized by Peter Thiel, that Trump’s supporters “take him seriously, but not literally.”

When the wall came tumbling down

This weekend marks 30 years since the East German people broke through the Berlin Wall.
The dominos fell in place for the side of freedom.
The specter that haunted America’s containment policy during the Cold War was the “domino theory”—the idea that one nation after another would succumb to Communist aggression or revolution. In 1989 the domino theory came true in reverse—nearly the entire Communist world fell almost in the blink of an eye.

Who's next to drop?

Legal Insurrection looks at the wobbling Democratic contenders to see who will be the next to fall.
There's plenty of reasons it will be Kamala Harris.
Many of her dilemmas are self-creations. Harris undermined her national introduction with costly flubs on health care, feeding a critique that she lacks a strong ideological core and plays to opinion polls and the desires of rich donors. She was vague or noncommittal on question after question from voters at campaign stops. She leaned on verbal crutches instead of hammering her main points in high-profile TV moments. The deliberate, evidence-intensive way she arrives at decisions—one of her potential strengths in a matchup with Trump—often made her look wobbly and unprepared.
