Charles C.W. Cooke: Robert Kennedy Jr., Aspiring Tyrant
"The United States government, Kennedy lamented in an interview with Climate Depot, was not permitted by law to 'punish' or to imprison those who disagree with him...." Can you believe an American would say something like this? [rdbrewer]


John Fund: The Crumbling Climate-Change Consensus
"[T]he climate-change activists increasingly lack a scientific basis for their most exaggerated claims." [rdbrewer]


Jeffrey Anderson: Voter Intensity Strongly Against Obamacare
"[P]eople who care about the issue of Obamacare really donít like Obamacare. On the flip side, people who like Obamacare really donít care about it very much." [rdbrewer]
Photograph of Senator Mary Landrieu Assisting a Young Man with a Keg Stand May Indicate the Senator Has a Chemical Addiction to Carbs
I didn't say this -- Daniel Inoye just sent me this in an email from the Spectral Realm
Alaska TV Reporter Quits on Air: ĎF**k It, I Quití
Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]

Politico: Lois Lerner breaks silence
"'I didn't do anything wrong.'" She can't really believe that, right? [rdbrewer]


Orin Kerr: Appleís dangerous game, part 2: The strongest counterargument
"My Friday morning post on Appleís new iOS8 operating system pretty much kicked the hornetís nest, both here and on Twitter. In this post, I want to discuss what I think is the strongest counterargument made against my post. Itís a good argument, and it has pushed me to change my view from 'very troubled' to 'need more information to decide.'" [rdbrewer]


Jonathan Adler: Does Neil deGrasse Tyson make up stories?
"[T]he claims Davis contests are not casual remarks in conversation or responses to questions, but planned and repeated accounts. The various stories Davis challenges are regularly repeated in Tysonís lectures...." Via @JohnEkdahl. [rdbrewer]


Goodell and Barra: Students of the Obama Era of American Leadership
"What our current moment seems to feature is a bumper crop of (alleged) leaders insisting they can wait out the storm, often displaying a glimpse of indignation at suggestions that they resign because something terrible happened on their watch." People used to have the decency to resign, seems like. [rdbrewer]


Chicken Little, and Chicken Little Jr., 46 Years Apart
Ed juxtaposes video clips of father and son each predicting the world is about to end in both 1968 and today. RFK in 1968 predicts kids would need to wear gasmasks, and RFK Jr. freaks out during Sundayís enviro-march in New York. Their audiences in both circumstances were/are idiots. [rdbrewer]

What Went Wrong...? continued.
"The jihadists of the Islamic State, in other words, did not emerge from nowhere. They climbed out of a rotting, empty hulk - what was left of a broken-down civilization."
ht @nopasa [ArthurK]
Nadine Unger, NYT: To Save the Planet, Donít Plant Trees [rdbrewer]

The Telegraph: How Qatar is funding the rise of Islamist extremists
"Qatar's promotion of extremism has so infuriated its neighbours that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates all chose to withdraw their ambassadors from the country in March." [rdbrewer]


Jon Gabriel: The Left Doesnít Really Believe in Climate Change
"But how do leaders of the environmental left address these opposing doomsdays? By raising taxes, increasing government, impeding capitalism and reducing national sovereignty. Coincidentally, the same policies they would promote if their supposed environmental catastrophe was utter fiction." [rdbrewer]

Peggy Noonan: The Unwisdom of Barack Obama
People are overthinking Obama. He simply has bad judgment. "Mr. Obama can see the trees, name their genus and species, judge their age and describe their color. He absorbs data. But he consistently misses the shape, size and density of the forest. His recitations of data are really a faux sophistication that suggests command of the subject but misses the heart of the matter." [rdbrewer]

Video: Break up with your boyfriend [rdbrewer]

USA Today: Tax refunds will be cut for ACA recipients
"Obamacare," for the layperson. [rdbrewer]


Medieval Weapon Finds Modern Appeal
"'Longpoint, held in July, is one of several annual tournaments around the world, manifestations of renewed interest in what enthusiasts call historical European martial arts, or HEMA. It includes events like grappling ó similar to Greco-Roman wrestling ó and several types of swordfighting. But the focus is on the most iconic medieval weapon, forged from cold, lustrous steel: the longsword.'" [rdbrewer]
British woman returns to home town. Discovers Muslims living there have not assimilated. [dri]

Robert Tracinski: Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Metaphysical Dilemma of the Left
"Why do people feel the need to proclaim themselves so loudly as the pro-science side of the debate and to write off all opponents as anti-science? What makes scientists so susceptible to a cultural vogue like global warming and so willing to be dismissive of evidence that contradicts their theory?" [rdbrewer]
