New Clinton Rallying Cry: Equal Pay for Unequal Work!

Fiat Looks

A Swedish scientist has begun altering the DNA of healthy human embryos, something researchers have long stayed away from. After monitoring the embryos in their early stages, he will (in NPR’s words) “never let them develop” beyond a couple of weeks. Show More Summary

Report Shows Missiles That Shot Down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 Came from Russia

Even in the face of overwhelming forensic evidence, Moscow is denying that the missile that brought down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was of Russian origin. A Dutch-led investigation into the flight that left Amsterdam on July 17, 2014...Show More Summary

Alicia Machado

Still idiotic of Trump to have attacked her, but she may not be quite as sympathetic as the Clinton campaign was counting on. Alicia Machado

First, Someone Needs to Tell Trump He Lost

In post-campaign books, it’s always interesting reading about how aides tell the president or candidate that he lost a debate. Someone needs to do that with Trump if it hasn’t happened already, but it’s obviously a touchy assignment (a little like drawing the straw to tell Achilles that Patroclus is dead). Show More Summary

3-Parent Baby Shows "No Limits" Science Hubris

Fertility doctors have brought a baby to birth from an embryo created artificially with the biological substances of two women and one men.  That could be illegal in many places, so the American doctors went to Mexico to do the procedure. Show More Summary

Don't Sell Obamacare as a Medicaid Expansion for Children

The path to victory for Obamacare boosters is getting mighty narrow. Over at the New York Times’s Upshot yesterday, Professor Aaron Carroll led off a defense of Obamacare by observing: Three years into Obamacare and it seems as if much...Show More Summary

What's Gotten Into Howard Dean?

Howard Dean’s Tweet, “Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?” isn’t all that surprising. This is the same erratic, bombastic, speculating-out-loud man who flirted with Truther-ism during his presidential campaign. Dean: There...Show More Summary

It’s As If No One Remembers Who John Warner Is!

From the midweek edition of the Morning Jolt: It’s As If No One Remembers Who John Warner Is! Most of the Washington media is acting like it’s an enormous surprise that former senator John Warner of Virginia is endorsing Hillary Clinton. People, people… Sometimes I feel like the only man with memory in land of amnesiacs. Show More Summary

Krauthammer’s Take: TPP ‘Exemplifies All That’s Wrong with the Clinton Candidacy’

Charles Krauthammer said that the exchange on the Trans-Pacific Partnership was the low moment for Hillary Clinton in the first presidential debate with Donald Trump, since it showed her lack of principle: In fact she did call it “the gold standard.” And this one exchange, this one issue, exemplifies all that’s wrong with the Clinton candidacy.

The Ferguson Effect in Ferguson

How did the Ferguson effect affect Ferguson, Mo., last year? Precisely as you would expect. The little city of 21,059 already had a disproportionately high crime rate, as anyone observing the behavior of Michael Brown before he was fatally shot by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in August 2014 would have guessed.

More on Trump’s Iraq Revisionism

I’d add a few more details to Ramesh’s post about the context for Trump’s claim of fierce opposition to the war in Iraq – some context for the context, as it were. In 1998, President Bill Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act, which had been overwhelmingly approved in both houses of Congress. Show More Summary

Yale Professor Hypes the Threat of Police Shootings Beyond All Reason

As academic essays go, this might be one of the most overwrought and alarmist pieces I’ve ever read. It’s in the New York Times, of course. Here’s African-American Yale professor Chris Lebron discussing his deepest fears: Iâ??m not sure how many days are left in my life. I am not suffering from a terminal disease. Show More Summary

Trump's Iraq-War Revisionism

Let’s keep in mind the context for the debate over where Trump stood on the Iraq war: During this campaign he has repeatedly bragged about his farsightedness in opposing it. Here’s Trump in a September 2015 debate: I’m meeting with people...Show More Summary

When You Can't Admit Error

One of Trump’s rocky moments toward the end of the debate was his answer on birtherism. It makes no sense for Trump to reach out to African-Americans in the hopes of getting a small increment of additional black voters — and showingShow More Summary

Fact-Checking Clinton on the Economy

James Pethokoukis and Avik Roy both highlight what may have been Clinton’s least defensible economic assertion of the first debate: that the Bush tax cuts somehow set off the economic crisis of 2008. T here’s no evidence to back up this argument, and no mainstream theory either. Show More Summary

The Chinese Government’s Meddling in Tibetan Religion Is Faltering

Heather Mac Donald Fact-Checks Hillary Clinton on Systemic Bias and Stop-and-Frisk

At City Journal, Heather Mac Donald dismantles Hillary Clinton’s debate claims that the criminal justice system is infected with racism and that stop-and-frisk (which Trump has called for reviving) is unconstitutional and ineffective.  As with anything Heather writes, the whole thing is worth your time.
