    Mr. Hanson, i have a suggestion for you vis a vis falling asleep. I use a suppliment I get on Amazon for $9.99 called L-Triptophan. I take one at bedtime and am usually asleep in 15 minutes. I think it helps the body make seratonin. Works for me without the headache I got from Melatonin. Good luck

    Victor Davis Hanson: Try Delta 8’s for sleeping. Derived from the hemp plant.

    As a lifelong insomniac, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how deeply I sleep after taking a few 25 mg gummies. (Like jellybeans). I’ve been frustrated, admittedly, by Delta 8’s tendency to make my mind groggy the following day. Still… sleep to an insomniac is as precious as money can be to someone who went through the Great Depression.

    Vis-a-vis Secretary Austin’s focus and responsibilities, I read, today, that the Army is dropping its requirement for a high school degree or GED equivalent. They are also relaxing medical/physical requirements and/or will issue more waivers. This is probably because they are only at 40% of their recruitment goal — which was dropped from about 29,000 to 20,000. Think about that. In this era of emphasis on high-tech, cyber warfare, drones, etc., they are dropping their educational requirements but have time to focus on providing abortion services for members and family members. How will these waivers save those members (and the fellow service people depending on them) on the battlefield? That is why the standards exist in the first place. Absolute dereliction of duty.

    The “Never Trumpers” are a sorry bunch. I cannot think of one thing positive that they actually accomplished. Under their watch, the Dems kept moving the line left, then a bit more left, then a bit more left, and here we are. The NTers failed to formulate a single argument that resonated with a majority of the electorate over decades. And, they watched while Hank paid his Goldman Sucks cronies their bonuses after they helped precipitate the 2008-9 meltdown and Joe Average had to pony up to bail them and their cronies out. Unforgivable. Some legacy. Why would we expect candor out of them now?

    Thank you, Victor and Jack. Insightful, as always.

    It seems to me that the general quality of people who “serve” at the highest levels of the federal government (agencies, the House and Senate, the military) has been dropping for decades. I realize that corrupt people have always been in government (J. Edgar and Tailgunner Joe, for example) but what I am talking about here is a combination of intllectual mediocrity and moral corruption; it seems pervasive, on both sides of the aisle. The canary in the coal mine should have been the growth of the DC region, largely fueled by the lobbyists and other “pay to play” influencers, many of them either recycled former government workers or campaign workers seeking the expected rewards for their support. You could watch these folks en masse at Hilary’s election headquarters after is was clear Trump had won. There wasn’t a dry eye in the building, all of the tears being for the career opportunities they knew were flushed down the election toilet. I’m afraid I decided a while ago that this DC mess cannot be fixed. I am hoping Roe v Wade is the beginning of a concerted move back to federalism and eventual minimization of the federal behemoth. “Starve the beast” was tried and does not work. Time to use the Constitution as written to shine sunlight on the federal vampire. Perhaps we can eventually have a Federal government that does a few things well instead of many things badly.


    As far as falling asleep goes, don’t take drugs, natural or otherwise. Read a book and read yourself to sleep.


    My wife and I visited Israel a couple of weeks before VDH and heard much praise from Israelis for Trump’s decisions moving the embassy to Jerusalem and his recognition of Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights. In fact, Israel renamed a nearby town as Trump Heights. While the Israelis I talked with valued the embassy move, which got much publicity in the USA, the decision of far greater importance to Israel was Trump’s decision on the Golan Heights, which as I recall got virtually no mention in the US media. Strange. Best wishes to VDH and Jack and Sami. Hal Brayman

    Thank you for thoughtful manner of describing acts of others without first impugning their integrity, and questioning why they make the decisions they do. Generally, when the truth eventually surfaces, their intent is laid bare. However your approach in addressing issues of concern allows for a continuing conversation on that issue, rather than it being sidetracked in to a personal attack and defense.

    You did address the concern of career management and post service earnings within our military – industrial complex and its access to ever younger 3 & 4 star retiring flag officers. Another example of this perception of the soft corruption of governmental decision making was surfaced by Sen Rand and the $350 Million commissions (royalties) paid to 1,800 NIAID & NIH employees charged with overseeing those companies paying these funds, including the Federal Government’s highest paid employee Dr. Fauci, without public reporting or transparency.
