Now at The Daily Caller

Brave new world without boundaries gets one: Milo has been disinvited from C-PAC after interview clips of him supporting "consenting" sexual relations between adolescents and adults surfaced, as they say.  The question was not about Milo's right to free speech.  The question was whether it was proper for the leading, conservative, movement venue to choose to elevate someone who openly and quite volubly supports pedophilia (notwithstanding Milo's post-puberty stipulation). Such relations with youngsters are still a felony crime, thank goodness; also an abomination to some considerable number of conservatives and, I expect, liberals, too. 

If C-PAC made its decision on the merits, I imagine it came down to a matter of how capacious the meat/potatoes, Solid Joe and decent conservative mainstream is, or ought to be -- and whether the hedonism that passes under the flag of "edgy" is really where its C-PAC helmsmen want that mainstream to flow.

From Left (above) to Right (below), Washington elites reveal that they what they really oppose is the democratic system that duly and constitutionally elected Donald Trump president of the United States. 

 

 

 

Behold Trump White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon by Nadev Kandar for Time magazine.

Then, behold Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett by Nadev Kandar for the New York Times Magazine. 

That's right. It's the same photographer at "work" -- political work, though, not photojournalism. Indeed, what a difference a photographer's raw politics makes. Every trick in the lighting and processing book is on display here. Bannon gets the Lucifer lights; Jarrett gets a Debbie Reynolds glow. 

And not just Jarrett, by the way. Using similar photographic wiles, Kandar created a rather massive "Inauguration Gallery" of "Obama's...

So I watched. 

Here's where my ears pricked up:

"By 1973 I was in a state of kind of shell shock and sitting on the sidelines..." 

Now, there's another gewgaw for the desk drawer ....

In 1973, the man was deep into his Black Panther period, which ended with the murder of Betty van Patter, whose body would be found in January 1975, causing Horowitz finally to notice, so he claims, that the Panthers were violent actors. This is not exactly "sitting on the sidelines."

Still ahead of him also in 1973 was his June 1974 essay in Ramparts pushing back against Solzhenitysn. Yes, at age 35,...

It is rare and reviving sight in Washington, DC. to see honor and duty and moral clarity drive a political measure.

I refer to House Resolution 21, recently introduced by the truly honorable Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and explained in the video below to call upon the US military to correct the great and terrible wrong it perpetrated on brave and loyal US Marines who came under enemy attack in Afghanistan one day in March nearly ten years ago.

On that day, Marines met an enemy attack with appropriate force and survived. It was the attacks by their own commanders in the aftermath that opened wounds that have not yet healed. For the men of Fox Company and their families, these wounds continue to cause professional and personal setbacks and suffering. Rep. Jones' resolution asks that the military publicly acknowledge the fact that these Marines acted appropriately and without fault in order to restore the reputations stolen from them by irresponsible military commanders, even to this day.
