“Forget The Right Stuff. This is The Neurotic Stuff. First Man drains the triumph, the exhilaration, the excitement, and the meaning from Neil Armstrong’s exemplary life in favor of a jittery, anxious, tragedy-soaked account deliberately designed to deny its audience any sense of transcendence.”
Then, the other day, the Brit actress who plays Armstrong’s suffering wife takes a liberal shot at President Trump. Thank you, dear, for saving me the price of your movie. From the bottom of my wallet.

Should be a doozy, if classics professor Victor Davis Hanson is right.
He says history, the teaching of which began with the ancient Greeks and Romans, used to be about war. Because war was so prevalent in human history. And the idea was to try to figure out why war occurred so often and try to stop or at least slow down its reoccurrance.
Nowadays, he says, there are “four recognized military history programs [in academia] where you can get a major and there are 230, at last count, peace studies programs.” Yet studying peace has never stopped war.
Only armed deterrence, alliances and balance of power has a chance to stop it and keep the peace, he says. Or when it starts, to defeat the enemy as soon as possible. “These are the essentials of Western military history and they’ve absolutely disappeared from the modern curriculum.”
Got a chance the other day to confront an under-2-year-old with the reincarnation question “Do you remember when you were big?”
She nodded her head vigorously. But when I asked her what it was like, she grew fearful and drew back against her mother. I apologized and reassured her that everything would be all right.
Later I got to wondering why the fearful reaction? Was her past life, or the end of it, that awful? Or was she just shy?
Her mother told Barbara Ellen that her grandmother (the child’s great grandmother) was convinced the little girl “has been here before.”
UPDATE: Barbara Ellen notes that the girl was born deaf in one ear.
Yep, that’s where most of anti-gunner, anti-oil Beto’s $38 million campaign bucks came from, the part that isn’t direct from Soros. And it’s one reason why he’s well behind Cruz in the polls.

This column from the incomparable Ann Coulter also might be called an old-fashioned “fisking,” taking apart some very fake news engineered by CNN “reporter” Ana Cabrera.
Cabrera took a real quote from President Trump (it’s “a very scary time for young men in America” due to uncorroborated sexual assault allegations) and paraphrased it to make it racial (Trump saying “white men have a lot to fear right now”), then asked a black guest to comment on the fake news to blow it up even bigger.
Later, much later, on Twitter, she apologized for her “mistake” that wasn’t a mistake. Giving her a two-fer: doing the nasty on Trump, then apologizing as if she was contrite. Poor, honest Ana, she made a boo-boo.
“The network deliberately pushed a racism narrative,” writes Coulter, “calculated to incite racial hatred that could get someone killed…If this were an error, it would have been corrected before the first commercial break. It was not corrected because it’s not a mistake; it’s a political strategy.”
And it’s a perfect example of what President Trump calls very fake news.
“…a potential 10th generation relative…” in a DNA test, reports the Boston Globe. Making [Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren] 1/1,024th Native American. Note that minuscule trace is only “a potential.”
“To put that in perspective, Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American,” Republican National Committee Deputy Communications Director Mike Reed said in an email, while saying this would “not give you the right to claim minority status.”
As Warren did on a Harvard teaching application and in an Association of American Law Schools teachers directory, thereby abusing affirmative action policies to her advantage.

MORE: Breitbart reports that Warren is much better related to a soldier in the Tennessee Militia, which was responsible for the Trail of Tears pushing of the Cherokees into Oklahoma.
