by Josef Joffevia The Washington Post

Election 'Reforms' Are Usually One Party Trying To Rig The System

by David Davenportvia Washington Examiner
Friday, June 22, 2018

The election games have begun. Not just the obvious jockeying that takes place in the primaries and the general election. No, look below the radar at the several so-called reforms and improvements in the rules of voting and how elections are carried out. That sort of political gamesmanship, like June, is bustin’ out all over.

Dubious Move To Reject Advanced Placement

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via Thomas B. Fordham Institute
Friday, June 22, 2018

The octet of D.C.- area private school heads who boasted a few days ago that their pricey bastions of teaching and learning will no longer offer Advanced Placement courses made much of how the home-grown classes that will replace AP "allow for authentic engagement with the world and demonstrate respect for students' intellectual curiosity and interests."

Weaponizing Compassion

by Bruce Thorntonvia Front Page Magazine
Friday, June 22, 2018

The Democrat "resistance" has managed to break its own record for hysterical and hypocritical invective. Literalizing the clichéd punch line of a thousand gags––"Will no one think of the children!!!" ––the Dems are hyperventilating about the illegal alien parents and their children being separated upon detention, as the law requires. Once again, we see how much "conspicuous compassion," as Alan Bloom called it, has become a weapon of politics, one that damages our security and interests.

David Davenport: National Lessons From California Election Reform

by David Davenportvia Townhall Review
Friday, June 22, 2018
California lives on the edge of change. A few years ago, the Golden State adopted two big changes to its elections: Open primaries in which voters choose candidates from any party, and a top-two primary where the top two finishers qualify for the general election, regardless of party. The idea was to elect more moderate candidates.

The FDA: Challenges For A New Century, A Rough Road Ahead For Would-Be Reformers

by Henry I. Millervia New York University Journal Of Law & Liberty
Friday, June 22, 2018
Most Americans don’t think a lot about the scope, magnitude, and impacts of regulation on their lives. The FDA alone, for example, regulates products that account for more than a trillion dollars annually—25 cents of every consumer dollar, and the average cost (including out of pocket expenses and opportunity costs) to bring a new drug to market is now about $2.6 billion.

Be Outraged About Kids In Cages. But Save Some Ire For The Worst Refugee Offender: China

by Markos Kounalakisvia McClatchy DC
Thursday, June 21, 2018

Caging kids at the U.S. border is reprehensible. But as first ladies, governors, celebrities, and citizens of all political stripes line up and strike out against the inhumane practice of separating children from parents seeking refuge, everyone should save some ire and outrage for one of the world’s greatest offenders and dissemblers of refugee rights: China.

Saudi Arabia And The Electric Car Revolution

by Afshin Molavivia The Caravan
Tuesday, June 19, 2018

“Everyone has a plan,” the great American boxer Mike Tyson once quipped, “that is, until you get punched in the face.” Saudi Arabia, as the world knows by now, has a plan. In fact, the Saudi Vision 2030, unveiled in dramatic fashion in April 2016 with a roll-out similar to the launch of a new iPhone, has become one of the most well-known national transformation plans in the world. It has become almost a by-word for the changes dawning in the Kingdom, and the calling card for the reformist credentials of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia, The United States And The Anti-Iran Front In The Middle East

by F. Gregory Gause, IIIvia The Caravan
Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Though he fancies unpredictability a useful negotiating tool, President Trump has been remarkably consistent about the Middle East. He campaigned against the Iran nuclear deal and in May 2018 withdrew the United States from it. He promised, as most presidential candidates have done, to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Unlike any other successful candidate, he actually did it, also in May 2018.

The War, Here and Abroad, Goes On

by Victor Davis Hansonvia Works and Days
Saturday, April 14, 2007

The worst thing about the global oil spike brought on by increased consumption is not worries over global warming, or the idea that the United States is not “energy independent” (Japan does not overly worry that it must rely on others for food), but that our thirst has driven up the world price—and with it the importance of the Middle East while sending half-a-trillion dollars in petroprofits to a primordial region...
