Entitlements And The Budget

by John F. Coganvia Policyed.org
Wednesday, September 20, 2017

The United States faces a fiscal challenge unlike any in its history, driven entirely by spending on federal entitlement programs. The country is currently borrowing half a trillion dollars a year and is on pace to borrow a trillion dollars every year. Unless entitlement spending is restrained, every American will face higher taxes and lower standards of living.

When Stalin Faced Hitler

by Stephen Kotkinvia Foreign Affairs
Tuesday, September 19, 2017

[Subscription Required] Through the first four decades of his life, Joseph Stalin achieved little. He was born in 1878 to a poor family in Gori, Georgia, then part of the Russian empire. His father was a cobbler; his mother, a cleaning lady and seamstress. Stalin’s childhood, illnesses and mishaps included, was largely normal for the time.

The Vietnam Documentary And Military Lessons

by Bing West via Military History in the News
Tuesday, September 19, 2017

The Military History Working Group at Hoover concentrates upon logic, facts, and trends communicated via the written word. At the same time, more people in all strata of society are basing their judgments upon social media and digital images.

Trump Through A Pinhole

by Peter M. Robinsonvia Ricochet
Tuesday, September 19, 2017

At a business dinner in San Francisco last week, the host surprised me by asking me to say a few words about the administration. Unprepared, I stood, spoke–and found myself supporting the administration. The host was so surprised in turn–remember, this was in San Francisco–that he asked me to jot down my notes.

National Security Consequences Of Cutting Immigration

by Timothy Kanevia Fox News
Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Americans are having the wrong security conversation when it comes to the impact of immigration. We should be thinking about national security, not border security. The border can be secured without changing the level of legal immigration, but the nation’s strength has been (and will hopefully always be) built on millions of migrants coming to our shores.

by Kori Schakevia Foreign Policy
Tuesday, September 19, 2017

[Registration Required] First the good news: President Donald Trump did not sound like the late, great U.N. fulminator Hugo Chávez, nor the incendiary former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The speech did not last over an hour.

District Schools Aren’t Charter Schools – And That’s Ok

by Michael J. Petrillivia EducationNext
Wednesday, September 20, 2017

David Osborne, known for his best-selling Reinventing Government, is out with a new book, Reinventing America’s Schools. To promote it, he is blitzing the country and filling the nation’s newspapers with an argument that is familiar yet powerful: High quality charter schools are the best hope for urban education, so states and cities should do everything in their power to allow them to grow and prosper, and school districts should embrace them as well.

Here’s the problem with suggesting that upsetting speech warrants “safe spaces,” or otherwise conflating mere words with physical assault: If speech is violence, then violence becomes a justifiable response to speech.

A Do-It-Yourself Liberal Education

quoting Peter Berkowitzvia Real Clear Politics
Tuesday, September 19, 2017

In the name of social justice and diversity, students at elite colleges are casting aside the very works that probe those topics so deeply. The central authors of the Western tradition—from Plato and Aristotle to Mill and Orwell—are no longer part of the required curriculum in the social sciences and the humanities. Their absence carries a high price.

What's The Story?

featuring Shelby Steelevia The Weekly Standard
Monday, September 25, 2017

If I were a Republican strategist, which I’m pleased to say I’m not, I would pay especial attention to Shelby Steele’s op-ed “Why the Left Can’t Let Go of Racism” in the August 27 issue of the Wall Street Journal. Toward the close of his article, Steele writes that “the great problem for conservatives is that they lack the moral glibness to compete with liberalism’s ‘innocence’ ”—innocence, in this case, from the evil of racism and social injustice generally. Steele then goes on briefly to suggest that “reality” should be the “informing vision” of conservatism.”
