As usual, Paul Craig Roberts is spot-on.

Pence said that "the United States of America will always seek peace," while the US stands for war:

So we truly are back in Orwelliana: WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. (Edit: Oops, I see you anticipated me with that. Sorry.)

And trust Pence to prove it, just about the only politician I'd like even less than Trump as President. If I had to choose between him and the next two in line after him, I'd accept him. He's perhaps marginally better than Ryan and certainly better than McConnell. But I hate to think about such unpleasant prospects.

That is the most exciting story on evolutionary biology I've read in a long time. I certainly hope the Austrians and others will investigate it, as Trump's America won't be allowed to. (Can't support the evil theory of evolution. Hell, can't support science, period.)
