  3. He says in the article that he wouldn't mind going home, so I assume he'll come home to Wisconsin. He gave up a very successful business to run for Senate.
  4. Mar. 6 2021 In what is being touted as his best episode yet, Dr. James Tour brings everything taught in the previous episodes into Part 1 of this multipart episode, discussing the construction of the cell and the problems of its assembly. With the surgical lights now shining directly on the subject, Dr. Tour begins his vivisection, exposing the sophistry of the origin-of-life narrative held by many while systematically excising fallacy by fallacy where the storytelling should stop. With the state of the origin-of-life field remaining stagnant post-Miller-Urey, Dr. Tour short circuits with
  5. Power Line John Hinderaker March 6, 2021 This morning the Senate passed the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion spending bill on a party line vote, with every Democrat voting in favor. I take this to mean that there are officially no sane Democrats left. With something like $1 trillion still unspent from Congress’s last “covid stimulus” bill, the economic consequences of the current boondoggle, which has little to do with covid and a great deal to do with pork and partisan payoffs, are likely to be dire. Today’s vote apparently signals the Democrats’ adoption of “Modern Monetary Theory

    Welcome To My World Mar. 5 2021 Here we see yet one more reason I'm leaving. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” C. S. Lewis

    What is the fifth wave?

    Mar, 6 2021 The internet is brutal. Martin Gurri calls it a “great mutilator.” Gurri was a global media analyst at the CIA in 2001, right as the internet erupted with what he describes as an “Information Tsunami.” That year, more information was produced than all information before it. The next year, double. Then double that, and it threw the leadership structure of the world into a “state of crisis.” Gurri wrote about it in his book, “The Revolt of the Public and the Crisis of Authority in the New Millennium,” and he joins Glenn to discuss the main issue it created, which we’re still fee

    What is the fifth wave?

    The Fifth Wave Information expands in great waves which sweep over the human landscape and leave little untouched. We stand at the earliest moment of what promises to be a cataclysmic expansion of information and communication technologies: the fifth wave. Much of the old dispensation still remains. Because it has been useful to people in authority, it will die hard. In Cuba, bloggers are beaten. In Iran, Facebook and Twitter get shut down while regime thugs shoot protesters. Violence and bloodshed will accompany the agony of top-down, I-speak-you-listen modes of information.
  11. More Here (again from Power Line Juxtaposition Steven Hayward Mar. 6 2021 (Snip) Let’s swing to Atlanta: Some observations: Quite obviously Caleb is a very gifted child, with a bright future ahead of him. Note also that he has two parents involved in his life, who it appears understand the importance of transmitting what we used to call “virtue.” The story doesn’t say whether he attended a private school, but with his kind of innate intelligence and caring parents, he would probably thrive at an average public school. There is a mountain of social science data, a
  12. MSN Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (R) said Friday that he has not decided on whether to run for reelection next year but hinted that retiring after the end of his second term is "probably my preference now." Johnson made a vow to serve only two terms in the Senate when he first ran for the upper chamber, and his seat is expected to be hotly contested by Democrats whether or not he runs again. In comments to Wisconsin media outlets that his office confirmed to The Hill, Johnson indicated he's leaning toward honoring his pledge but added the caveat that the promise was made when Dem

    SD, I was going to quote your picture of the first family of "health" but I'm trying to get that immage gone. If that is a real pic, that's another of the saddest commentaries on the new batch of cronies PS: Thanks for the week Mr 18
  15. Reclaim The Net Ben Squires Feb. 26 2021 A school principal in Tennessee is suing his school district and its superintendent for suspending him after he taught kids about Big Tech censorship. The lawsuit claims his First and Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated. (Snip) Barton Thorne, Principal, Cordova High School Transcript of Remarks to Cordova High School Students and Staff January 11, 2021 The thing I want to talk about, that’s happened recently, and I never from my years of teaching and administration, I do not get into religion and I do not get
  16. New Discourses Editor’s note: This hypothetically open letter was originally posted by its anonymous author on Medium and was rapidly removed as “hate speech.” We found it to be a refreshing dose of honesty, a charming and relatable open letter from one parent to other parents (not to the child, obviously!) about dealing with a challenging and dangerous moment in raising children, especially “weird” adolescents who search for their identities harder than others and risk making life-damaging mistakes in a way never before possible. We are reposting it here on New Discourses with the permiss
  17. The Daily Wire Dennis Prager Mar 6, 2021 The great tragedy of our time is that liberals vote Left. Virtually every value liberals have held for a century is now held by conservatives and scorned by leftists. Therefore, America, in serious jeopardy of being lost, will be saved when people convince the liberals in their life that the Left, not the conservative, is their enemy. This process begins by establishing whether a friend or relative is a liberal or a leftist. If it turns out that he or she is a liberal, it is worth engaging in respectful dialogue on the issues of

  20. Our Public Schools: Worse Than You Can Imagine John Hinderaker March 5, 2021 America’s public education system is so bad that it is an existential threat to the survival of the republic. I have known this for a long time, but I continue to be shocked by the depths to which the teachers’ unions and the Democratic Party have dragged millions of our country’s children. This story comes from Baltimore, an increasingly godforsaken urban landscape–but one which, to be fair, has enjoyed economic growth during the 21st century that, while poor, is still better than my own Twin Citi

  23. American Greatness Despite their perspicacity, America’s founders could not have envisioned every turn to which human nature would subject the United States. In fairness, who could foresee the temerity of the deceitful, conspiracy peddling, leftist media now demanding to be designated as the repository and gatekeeper of truth? When drafting the First Amendment’s recognition and protection of God-given rights to free speech and a free press, the framers knew a governmental attack on a free press outlet would constitute an attack on everyone’s freedom of speech. Equally, they believed
