COVID-19: Where We Stand Now

COVID-19: Where We Stand Now

inCOVID-19 is setting records for press hysteria and draconian government action. For the first time in our history–for that matter, human history, as far as I know–the healthy are being quarantined, with catastrophic consequences for hundreds of millions of lives, our health care system, our economy, and much else. For what? Is this year’s coronavirus really a crisis of unprecedented proportions, as we are constantly told?The numbers don’t seem to bear that out. This is a simple bar chart that I have posted several times before, with updated numbers. The bar on the left is the average...

Are U.S. coronavirus deaths being over counted or under counted?

Are U.S. coronavirus deaths being over counted or under counted?

inIt’s frustrating how little we know about the Wuhan coronavirus months after its spread began. We don’t even know with great confidence the approximate number of people who have died from it.It’s possible to die from the virus without having been tested. It’s also possible to test positive and die due to something else.that total deaths in the U.S. are down year-to-date from last year, notwithstanding the coronavirus pandemic. According to , they are also down year-to-date from 2018 and 2017.However, notes that, according to , there are typically about 6,000 deaths in New York City...

The numbers don't support BLM claims about the police

The numbers don't support BLM claims about the police

in , ,Are black lives in danger due to “systemic racism” in American policing? Are “black and brown bodies” under systematic assault by white racists?The numbers from recent years suggest that the answer to both questions is “no.” There are in which unarmed blacks are killed by white police officers. To the extent that, in these instances, the police officer acted wrongfully, the officer must be held fully accountable. However, the low number of instances compared to the undercuts any claim of a systemic policing problem in this regard.Similarly, the statistics on interracial violence...

Rod Rosenstein on FISA lies: I'm accountable but not responsible

Rod Rosenstein on FISA lies: I'm accountable but not responsible

in , , ,This morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee called Rod Rosenstein to testify about operation “crossfire hurricane,” the Mueller investigation, and related matters. I watched as much of it as I could stomach — a little less than two hours.Rosenstein is a snake. He recommended that James Comey be fired (albeit for a different reason than the one Trump mentioned in an interview about Comey’s termination) and then made the firing of Comey the grounds for bringing in a special counsel.Moreover, he selected Robert Mueller for the job even though President Trump had just rejected Mueller...

Cancellation in the first person

Cancellation in the first person

in ,In its forthcoming July/August issue, Commentary features the first-person account of our own Steve Hayward telling the story of his cancellation by the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Steve’s memoir/essay is As always, Steve wears his learning lightly, but his characteristic humor is absent from this somber and infuriating account. Come for the farcically disgraceful story, stay for Steve’s telling selection of quotes from Goldman School founding dean Aaron Wildavsky. Highly recommended.STEVE adds: Thanks, Scott. Readers—the story isn’t quite over, and I’m not done yet!...

Grant, Too [Updated]

Grant, Too [Updated]

in ,So much for the idea that “Confederate monuments” are under attack. Last night in San Francisco, left-wingers pulled down a statue of Ulysses Grant, the man who did more than anyone except Lincoln to preserve the Union and abolish slavery. Grant also, as President, did all he could to enforce Reconstruction and protect blacks in the South. He sent the military after the Ku Klux Klan in South Carolina, worked to ensure passage of the 15th Amendment, and signed the Civil Rights Act of 1875.Of course, the Left knows little and cares less about any of this. Leftists hate the Union and hate...

You don't need a weather vane

You don't need a weather vane

in , ,On the colonial frontier Congregational minister Eleazar Wheelock established Dartmouth College as an institution to educate Native Americans. The college had its origins in the Indian missionary movement and in the mid-eighteenth-century evangelical revival. The college’s charter reflected its origins in Indian education even though it also provided for the education of “English Youth and any others.” ( this account of the college’s history from Encylopedia.com.)The education of “English Youth and any others” quickly came to predominate, though the college’s origins were proudly...
