The Recovery Is Reaching Its End

by Edward Paul Lazearvia The Wall Street Journal
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

When unemployment dropped below 5% three years ago, some economists, including at the Federal Reserve, concluded that the labor market had topped out—that those still out of work would never get jobs. Three years and nearly eight million additional jobs later, it’s clear they were wrong.

China’s Privileging Of “Mr. Science” Over “Mr. Democracy”

by Michael R. Auslinvia Law & Liberty
Wednesday, June 19, 2019

For decades, the voices of dissident Chinese, like human rights lawyer and activist Teng Biao, were occasionally heard and never listened to by the larger world. Some, like Wei Jingsheng, author of the famous “Fifth Modernization” essay during the Democracy Wall movement in 1978, or Wang Dan, student leader of the 1989 Tiananmen Square democracy protests, became minor celebrities in the world of human rights and democracy promotion. Yet even the most prominent among them failed to change in any material way the world’s policies towards China.

U.S. Cyber Infiltration Of The Russian Electric Grid: Implications For Deterrence

by Herbert Linvia Lawfare
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The New York Times reported on June 15 that “the United States is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin.” In particular, the Times reported that the United States has deployed code “inside Russia’s grid and other targets”—that is, “potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system, ... intended partly as a warning, and partly to be poised to conduct cyberstrikes if a major conflict broke out between Washington and Moscow.” The article also noted that this step would represent a major escalation in the ongoing cyber conflict between Moscow and the United States.

quoting H. R. McMastervia Washington Examiner
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

VDH On How Liberalism Destroyed California

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Rush Limbaugh Show
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Victor Davis Hanson was on with Chatsworth Osborne Jr. last night on the Fox News Channel. And I want to play these two bites. Victor Davis Hanson lives in California as a farmer. He lives and works, he lives on a farm not far from Fresno. And he knows the circumstances of life away from the coast. But he also works at the Hoover Institute, which is a Never Trumper conservative think tank at Stanford in Palo Alto, and he goes there occasionally.

Will Inflation ‘Save’ Social Security?

quoting Charles Blahousvia Liberty Headlines
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

That’s not exactly news – at least not to anyone who has been paying attention to the sorry state of federal finances. Yet to most Americans, the ballooning national debt ($22.3 trillion and counting) isn’t a problem that impacts their daily lives. They won’t directly perceive the cost of another trillion dollars in borrowing in the government’s next fiscal year.

Little Greece Becoming Big Player In World Geopolitics

Trump’s Top Russia Aide To Depart

quoting Michael McFaulvia Foreign Policy
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

With Hill’s departure, the administration loses an experienced Russia hand widely respected by regional experts and policymakers on both sides of the aisle, a rarity in Trump’s hyperpoliticized Washington. Her appointment as the senior director for European and Russian affairs two months into the Trump administration was welcomed by longtime Russia watchers at a time when the president’s relationship with Moscow was under investigation and U.S.-Russia relations were at their lowest ebb since the Cold War.
