“‘We haven’t seen anything like this in my lifetime,’ said William A. Galston, a senior fellow in governance at the Brookings Institution...’He appears to be daring the rest of the political system to stop him — and if it doesn’t, he’ll go further.’”

”America’s democratic system, the world’s oldest, is said to be resilient, with institutions strong enough to defend against runaway actors....Earlier in Trump’s presidency, that appeared to be the case. Right now, however, that is in question.”

Retweeting this seems to be a confirmation by Trump that the reported account of the conversation is correct.

It seems amazing because for about 50 of the last 120 years, nothing much has changed. Same ideas, same parties, same music, same art, same transport, tech, careers, mostly same regimes. Whereas years between the birth of Hegel and the 1970s were filled with amusing incidents.

Rather amazing that we are now nearly as far away from Strauss’ birth as he was from the birth of Hegel.

Trump’s been tweeting away, attacking Joe Biden and our intelligence officials. But to my knowledge he hasn’t once denied that he repeatedly demanded of the president of Ukraine that he investigate Hunter Biden.

Earlier this week it was the 120th anniversary of the birth of Leo Strauss. Who was Leo Strauss? Why is his writing of enduring relevance? In this Conversation (from 2015), Harvey Mansfield presented a great introduction to Strauss:

Dear , Is your position that you didn't say what it's been reported you said, or that you said it but there's no problem with your having done so? Yours, Bill K

Requesting ahead of time, just in case: A rabbinic judgment explaining why it’s ok to watch a national league wildcard game on Rosh Hashanah.

We all know what’s going to happen over the next week: With a truly inspiring last-ditch effort to win a wildcard spot, the Mets...fall a game short.

Jim VandeHei on the new media world: "It’s just a lot easier to get pulled to the furthest edge of your ideology....You have your little bubbles where you’re consuming information, sharing information, and commenting on information." Watch the whole thing:

Congress will establish what happened. Maguire will testify. Others at NSC and State and in the IC have seen a transcript or notes. If Congress investigates seriously and calls Bolton and Pompeo and subordinates, it can get at the truth. But will the truth be followed by action?

I’m challenging in the GOP Primary. I disagree with on plenty of policy issues. But I stand with Joe Biden here. Trump again abused his power & violated his oath. His response is an ugly smear of Biden. Joe Biden puts America 1st. Donald Trump doesn’t.

For Leo Strauss's 120th Birthday, here's a thread of quotes from and reflections on Benardete's "Strauss on Plato" "What philosophy is seems to be inseparable from the question of how to read Plato."

The Secretary of Defense is holding an emergency press conference right now to basically say we are not going to retaliate for Iran's attack on Saudi Arabia.
