The Trump Rationale

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Why exactly did nearly half the country vote for Donald Trump? Why also did the arguments of Never Trump Republicans and conservatives have marginal effect on voters? Despite vehement denunciations of the Trump candidacy from many pundits on the right and in the media, Trump nonetheless got about the same percentage of Republican voters (88–90 percent) as did McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012, who both were handily defeated in the Electoral College.

Connecticut Joins The Quiet Campaign To Undermine Constitutional Presidential Elections

by David Davenportvia Washington Examiner
Monday, May 21, 2018

Both houses of the Connecticut legislature recently passed the National Popular Vote Bill, which now sits on the desk of Gov. Dannel Malloy, who is expected to sign it. With his approval, Connecticut will join a quiet campaign to undo the Electoral College by means of a clever end run rather than a proper constitutional amendment.

Building Resilient Infrastructure

by Alice Hillvia PolicyEd
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

America’s existing infrastructure hasn’t been built to deal with the natural disasters we’ll face this century. New and replacement infrastructure must be built to be resilient to future climate disruptions. While it may sound costly, the return to building resilient infrastructure will save more money in the long run.

One year ago, news broke that an American doctor was charged in Detroit federal criminal court for performing genital mutilation on young girls. Since then, the case has uncovered a web of secrecy and abuse with seven more charged and up to 100 girls potentially victimized.

The President’s Prescription Plan: A Step In The Right Direction

by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall
Monday, May 21, 2018

President Trump recently announced his plan to lower prescription drug costs. It’s a solid plan that strikes the delicate balance between promoting innovation with the need to ensure that consumers have access to the medicines they need at a price they can afford.

Military Pageantry At The Royal Wedding

by Andrew Robertsvia Military History in the News
Monday, May 21, 2018

Although Prince Harry’s marriage last week to Ms. Meghan Markle was not a military occasion, the groom and best man wore uniform and more than 250 servicemen from units with storied military histories took part, so I think it’s acceptable to report on it for Military History in the News.

Ambassador Michael McFaul: A Brief History Of Russia

featuring Michael McFaulvia Commonwealth Club
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union 27 years ago, Russia has been both a central figure in our foreign relations and a surprise actor in our domestic politics. Given the unprecedented attention paid to our Cold War foe, how did we get here? Ambassador Michael McFaul may have some answers.

Thomas Friedman’s World May Be Flat, But No One Else’s Is

featuring Niall Fergusonvia The Online Library of Law and Liberty
Monday, May 21, 2018

We know a noun has pervaded our sensibilities when we derive a verb from it. “Network” appears in 16th century English, and was meant literally: a work of netting, coarse or fine. As an abstraction meaning any complex design of threadlike entities, from a river system to a political economy, the word didn’t arrive until the early 19th century.

What Moral Heroes Are Made Of

quoting William Damonvia The New York Times
Monday, May 21, 2018

Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to be around a lot of people who I would regard as moral heroes. They spend their lives fighting poverty, caring for the young or the sick, or single-mindedly dedicated to some cause. I’ve been wondering what traits such people tend to have in common.

Should Schools Require Foreign Languages? Doubtful.

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Forbes
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Some schools allow students to substitute classes in statistics, math, and computer programming courses for “foreign language” requirements. It’s a good policy, and it would be wise, I think, for schools around the country to adopt it or simply drop foreign language requirements altogether.

Trump’s Demands Escalate Pressure On Rosenstein To Preserve Justice Dept.’s Independence

quoting Jack Goldsmithvia The New York Times
Monday, May 21, 2018

As President Trump and his allies repeatedly take aim at the Justice Department investigation into his campaign’s possible links to Russia’s election meddling, Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general overseeing the inquiry, has mostly evaded the attacks through inventive maneuvers.

Trump Doesn't Need A Grand Strategy

quoting Josef Joffevia Foreign Affairs
Monday, May 21, 2018

Of all the criticisms raised against the foreign policy of U.S. President Donald Trump, the most predictable is to deplore his lack of a grand strategy. For instance, Rebecca Friedman Lissner and Micah Zenko have criticized Trump’s “anti-strategic” foreign policy and inability to “develop and execute a purposive course of action over time.” Others concede that although Trump does indeed have a grand strategy, it is ill conceived and insufficient.
