The Structure of the Contemporary International System

by Josef Joffevia Strategika
Thursday, November 15, 2018

A monopoly obtains when one firm is free to set prices and output while keeping ambitious newcomers out of the market. The best example is Standard Oil in the late 19th century. Ruthlessly undercutting competitors, the company ended up controlling 90 percent of refined oil flows in the United States. The United States never had that kind of overweening power in the international “market.” It may have come close to unipolarity in the 1990s when its mortal rival, the Soviet Union, had committed suicide. Yet the contemporary world is no longer unipolar. Neither is it bi- or multipolar.

by Tunku Varadarajanvia The Wall Street Journal
Friday, November 16, 2018

Democracy Dies In Trivia

by Bruce Thorntonvia Front Page Magazine
Friday, November 16, 2018

“Democracy Dies in Darkness” is the motto of the post-Trump Washington Post. This pompous and self-congratulatory bit of virtue-signaling is meant to proclaim the essential function the media play in protecting the political order against the supposed threat of tyranny embodied in Donald Trump. The hypocrisy of a media that wear its progressive ideology on its sleeve, and that blatantly skew their coverage of the president at a 90% negative clip, has exposed the motto as mere marketing to the leftist choir.

by Nadia Schadlow via Strategika
Thursday, November 15, 2018

By traditional measures—military strength, economic wealth, population size—the United States remains the world’s preeminent superpower. Its economy continues to expand; it deploys the largest military in the world; it is home to a growing population; and American laws and capital flows encourage a vibrant ecosystem for innovation.

Debate Over American Exceptionalism Is Over

quoting Niall Fergusonvia The Hill
Thursday, November 15, 2018
American nationalism was indicted as a cover for xenophobia and racism in the midterm elections. Yet, absent U.S. nationalism’s strongly positive side, the related concept of American exceptionalism fails.

The good news just keeps coming for California Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom. Not only did he win a resounding 60 percent-plus landslide, but he will be greeted by a two-thirds supermajority of fellow Democrats in both houses—more than sufficient to approve a tax increase.

The Justice Department’s Legal Defense Of Matthew Whitaker’s Appointment

quoting John Yoovia Slate
Wednesday, November 14, 2018

On Wednesday, in an Office of Legal Counsel memo, the Justice Department made its argument for why Matthew Whitaker’s appointment as acting attorney general is legal. Here’s that argument, in a nutshell: The Constitution’s text doesn’t really matter; the Framers didn’t mean what they said; and an acting attorney general who served without Senate confirmation for six days in 1866 provides the historical precedent to justify Whitaker’s claim to the office.

You Can't Explain Our Politics By Talking About 'Red States' And 'Blue States'

quoting Morris P. Fiorinavia The Washington Post
Wednesday, November 14, 2018

For the last eighteen years of politics, ever since the presidential election of 2000, a “red state” vs. “blue state” framework has defined how Americans talk about politics. And the “red” vs. “blue” divide hangs ever present, driving countless headlines emerging from last weeks’ midterm elections. “Red states get redder, blue states get bluer,” read the headline affixed to E.J. Dionne’s latest at the Washington Post. “The red parts got redder and the blue parts bluer in a midterm election that underscored America’s deep divide,” proclaimed the analysis at the Los Angeles Times.
