Professor Cites Ridiculous Source, Claims Founders Were Raging Alcoholics

How do we arm students with the knowledge to challenge liberal professors? On this episode of The Vault, Glenn is joined by Tim Barton of Wallbuilders, who recounts a college student reaching out to him after a professor claimed the Founders were raging alcoholics who got plastered two days before signing the Constitution. The professor's source: The Huffington Post. Watch Glenn and Tim dissect the HuffPo article, which chronicles the drinking habits of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, and teach students how to handle outrageous and false claims in the classroom.

Watch the video for a sneak peek and answers to these clarifying questions:

• Were the Founding Fathers raging alcoholics?

• Does the Huffington Post article count as an original source?

• Who should have to prove their point --- the person making the claim or the person questioning the claim?

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
