Our Make-it-Up World

by Victor Davis Hansonvia Tribune Media Services
Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Do bothersome facts matter anymore?

Not really. This is an age when Americans were assured that the Affordable Care Act lowered our premiums. It cut deductibles. Obamacare allowed us to keep our doctors and health plans, and lowered the deficit. Those fantasies were both demonstrably untrue and did not matter, given the supposedly noble aims of health care reform.

interview with Larry Diamondvia New York Times
Thursday, October 30, 2014

Street protests for free elections in Hong Kong have now stretched into a second month, and there is no sign of resolution.

War Without Strategy

by Bing West via Analysis
Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Forty-three percent of voters ranked the economy as the top issue in the 2014 midterm election, versus 15% who cited foreign policy. Yet 62% said they were very concerned about terrorism, the largest percentage polled since 2007, before the war turned around in Iraq. So why is the public both concerned and yet not concerned?

How the Supreme Court Should Resolve Zivotofsky

by Jack Goldsmithvia Lawfare
Thursday, October 30, 2014

Zivotofsky is an important case because it appears to require the Supreme Court to address the scope of the President’s exclusive foreign relations power vis a vis Congress.  This is a very hard question, rarely addressed by the Court, about which the relevant sources (text, original meaning, historical practice) are, in my view, unclear.

Crackdown In Lebanon Pushes Some Sunnis Toward ISIS, Al-Nusra

quoting Thomas H. Henriksenvia International Business Times
Wednesday, October 29, 2014

A recent wave of Shiite-led crackdowns in Lebanon is causing some Sunni Muslims within the country to adopt extremist ideology and align with jihadist groups like the Islamic State or al Qaeda. The Lebanese Army, working with Lebanon’s own Iran-backed, Shiite militant group Hezbollah, is fighting a recent upswing of Sunni extremist activity -- but the crackdown makes no distinction between Lebanese and Syrian Sunni militants, hits Syrian refugees and moderate rebel fighters as well, and may contribute to inflaming sectarian conflict in Lebanon, linking it to the war in next-door Syria.

John Maynard Keynes Is the Economist the World Needs Now

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Is there a doctor in the house? The global economy is failing to thrive, and its caretakers are fumbling. Greece took its medicine as instructed and was rewarded with an unemployment rate of 26 percent. Portugal obeyed the budget rules; its citizens are looking for jobs in Angola and Mozambique because there are so few at home.
