    Thank you, Mr. Rahe, for the Spartan history, and analysis of the election. I came late to the Trump Train, but have reconciled myself and will vote for Trump with a clear conscience. My take is a bit more simpler. I see the country being taken in the direction of Venezuela.

    Gosh, I actually heard Professor Rahe say that he doesn’t believe Trump would do to the folks working in the White House travel office what he did to Rafael Cruz. But it did. Even if his own son won’t remember, I will remember, and I’ll keep bringing it up, even if Senator Mike Lee and I are the only two men alive willing to remember that it happened.

    It was a good talk on Sparta. But the only date in pre-Christian antiquity that should matter in our time is 509 B.C.

    I didn’t know he used the FBI to destroy Rafael Cruz. How awful.

    True story, the FBI carried out the hit on Kennedy on Trump’s orders. Left Cruz as a patsy.

    Fun fact: we taped this in Peter’s office at Hoover. Here’s another view:
