Powerline on Our Times
Powerline is must reading during these times, as this trio of extraordinarily skilled lawyers-turned-public intellectuals keeps bringing incredible stories and analysis to the attention of an information-clogged world. They are editors of the enormous flow of relevant information, and you should begin every day with a scan of what they have decided to bring to the attention of their audience.
Two posts stand out from recent days.
John Hinderaker found this quote from Congressman John Dingell, who will be chair of the Powerful Energy and Commerce Committee if Democrats win control of the House:
“I don’t take sides for or against Hezbollah; I don’t take sides for or against Israel.” Asked, “You’re not against Hezbollah?” Dingell answers, “No…”
Thus every vote for any Democratic candidate for Congress is a vote to empower Dingell who cannot be made to denounce a terrorist organization engaged in the most sustained series of terror operations the world has ever seen.
