The Revolution began…in New Hampshire?

By Historical Digression

Fort William and Mary guarded the harbor entrance of Portsmouth, New Hampshire

The commencement of large-scale rebellion in the American colonies began with the Battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. As Emerson wrote of the Old North Bridge in Concord, "Here the embattled farmer stood, and fired the shot heard round the world." However, four months earlier, on December 14, 1774, an incident took place in Portsmouth, New Hampshire that could rival Concord and Lexington's claim to fame.

I have to admit up front, I do have a bias in this regard. I grew up in the vicinity of Concord and am very proud of that region's history. Patriot's Day (April 19) was a big deal in my home town. I happily remember participating as a youngster in the annual march to Concord along the route that the Minutemen followed. Since then, I've devoted considerable time to the study of the actions at Lexington and Concord…a day of such clear significance that it really cannot be "unseated" as the start of the Revolution. But still, there is this Portsmouth episode…

Gen. Thomas Gage came to Boston in May 1774 as the new Royal Governor of the Province of Massachusetts Bay…a province on the verge of rebellion. His primary task: to bring stability back to Massachusetts and avoid any widespread violence. It was, in my opinion, an impossible task. Boston had been under military occupation for roughly five years and was about ready to explode. Through the diligent efforts of the committees of correspondence, the unrest had spread throughout the province and beyond. It was far too late to bring Massachusetts back into the fold.

Gage gave it his best shot, however. But he found resistance at every turn. In the late summer of 1774, finding himself at loggerheads with Sam Adams, John Hancock and others, Gage disbanded the provincial legislature. Massachusetts was now under a state of martial law. Additional British regiments arrived in Boston. The provincial Minutemen were busy drilling as vigorously as possible. By September 1774, things looked very grim.

Still hoping to avoid bloodshed, Gage arrived at a simple plan to prevent a protracted rebellion…Take away the gunpowder. If the provincials had no access to gunpowder, they could not fight a war. In going about this, Gage did not wish to further incense the provincials and was careful to adhere to the law. Initially, he focused merely on collecting royal gunpowder stores and left alone the powder belonging to individual towns.

His first effort to fetch and protect the King's gunpowder took place on September 1, 1774 when he sent a battalion of redcoats in the dark morning hours to the Provincial Powder House in what is now Somerville, Massachusetts (the stone structure is still there, by the way, in what is now called Powder House Square). The movement was a perfect success…the King's powder removed, plus two cannons taken from Cambridge, all before the populace really knew what was happening. But that morning, such rumors flew from town to town until most of New England believed that the Regulars were firing upon civilians in the streets of Cambridge. Thousands upon thousands of armed militia marched to Cambridge, only to find that there had been no bloodshed and that the redcoats were safely back in Boston. Still, the massive response from the colonials was a sobering incident for Gage.

His next effort was to take the gunpowder and armaments from Fort William and Mary in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. That was not his province, but as commanding general of the King's forces in North America, Gage had to see to the safety of the King's munitions throughout the colonies. And royalist Governor John Wentworth of New Hampshire agreed that Portsmouth's fort represented a major problem.

Located on a peninsula at the mouth of the Piscataqua River, Fort William and Mary guarded the entrance to Portsmouth Harbor. But it was manned only by a skeleton crew of six British soldiers. Although Wentworth might have liked to have additional troops to bolster the fort and create a stronghold against the rebels, he apparently did not want the outrage that would be caused by an occupied Portsmouth. So, he enthusiastically agreed with Gage's plan to remove all munitions from the fort.

But no plan, on either side, could be kept secret in Boston. The Sons of Liberty quickly learned of Gage's intentions and on December 13, Paul Revere made one of his famous rides to warn the inhabitants of Portsmouth. The provinicials of New Hampshire wasted no time. By December 14, 1774, four hundred colonial militia had gathered in Portsmouth. And the Regulars had not even left Boston yet.

Republicans have more political leeway to impeach Donald Trump than they think

Former Republican senator Jeff Flake made headlines recently when he declared that he knew of "at least 35" Republican senators who would support ousting Donald Trump from office if their votes were taken in a secret ballot. In the debate over the president's impeachment, this means that what's stopping many Republicans on Capitol Hill from rejecting Trump isn't their conscience – but instead fear of political backlash. Yet is this fear actually warranted?

The answer is crucial because of how impeachment operates. Even if Democrats – who hold a majority in the House of Representatives – can vote to impeach the president without Republican support, they can't gain the two-thirds majority necessary in the Senate to remove Trump from office without significant Republican backing.

Conventional wisdom is that Republican leaders would pay a hefty price from conservative voters for turning on the president in a public way. According to Gallup, for example, Trump's approval rating among Republican voters stood at a strong 87% in late September. And a Washington Post-Schar School poll in the first week of October revealed that 71% of Republican voters disapproved of launching a formal impeachment inquiry.

00:00 00:45

Yet even amid what appears like stalwart support for Trump among his notoriously loyal base, there's reason to think that congressional Republicans have more leeway to mutiny than they think. For one thing, a key lesson from Watergate is that public opinion can change abruptly in the heat of an impeachment inquiry. As new revelations emerged about President Richard Nixon's crimes, his approval ratings tumbled.

Overton window

10-16-2019 • Wikipedia

This article is about the political concept. For the 2010 novel, see The Overton Window. For the episode of Billions, see List of Billions episodes § Season 4 (2019).

An illustration of the Overton Window, along with Treviño's degrees of acceptance

The Overton window is the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse, also known as the window of discourse. The term is named after Joseph P. Overton, who stated that an idea's political viability depends mainly on whether it falls within this range, rather than on politicians' individual preferences.[1][2] According to Overton, the window contains the range of policies that a politician can recommend without appearing too extreme to gain or keep public office in the current climate of public opinion.

Summary

Overton described a spectrum from "more free" to "less free" with regard to government intervention, oriented vertically on an axis, to avoid comparison with the left-right political spectrum.[3] As the spectrum moves or expands, an idea at a given location may become more or less politically acceptable. After Overton's death, his Mackinac Center for Public Policy colleague Joseph Lehman further developed the idea and named it after Overton.[4]

Political commentator Joshua Treviño has postulated that the degrees of acceptance of public ideas are roughly:[5][unreliable source?]

-Unthinkable

-Radical

-Acceptable

-Sensible

-Popular

-Policy

The Overton window is an approach to identifying which ideas define the domain of acceptability for a democracy's possible government policies. Politicians can only act within the acceptable range. Shifting the Overton Window involves proponents of policies outside the window persuading the public to move and/or expand it. Proponents of current policies, or similar ones, within the window seek to convince people that policies outside it should be deemed unacceptable. According to Lehman, who coined the term, "The most common misconception is that lawmakers themselves are in the business of shifting the Overton window. That is absolutely false. Lawmakers are actually in the business of detecting where the window is, and then moving to be in accordance with it."[6]

According to Lehman, the concept is just a description of how ideas work, not advocacy of extreme policy proposals. In an interview with the New York Times, he said, "It just explains how ideas come in and out of fashion, the same way that gravity explains why something falls to the earth. I can use gravity to drop an anvil on your head, but that would be wrong. I could also use gravity to throw you a life preserver; that would be good."[7] But since its introduction into political discourse, others have used the concept of shifting the window to promote ideas outside it, with the intention of making less fringe ideas acceptable by comparison.[8] The "door-in-the-face" technique of persuasion is similar.

Noam Chomsky said in 1998:[9]

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum—even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.
