Why I Will Be Attending Cardinal Conversations Tonight

by Michael McFaulvia Stanford Daily
Thursday, February 22, 2018

Before being asked to serve as a faculty advisor to Cardinal Conversations, I had never read anything written by Charles Murray. Life is short. I have over three-dozen books, stacked by my bedside and on my iPad, that I can’t find time to read. Of course, I was not opposed to having him speak on campus, and concurred with our organizational committee’s decision to invite him here. But I personally had never been interested enough in Murray to read his books or attend a talk.

Understanding The California Mind

by Victor Davis Hansonvia American Greatness
Monday, February 19, 2018

Nancy Pelosi gave a marathon speech on illegal immigration the other day. But how would she know much about the realities of open borders, given her palatial retreat in Northern California and multi-millionaire lifestyle that allows wealthy progressives like herself to be exempt from the consequences of her own hectoring? In the end, the House minority leader was reduced to some adolescent racialist patter about her grandson wishing to look more like his Mexican-American friend.

The ‘China, Inc.+’ Challenge To Cyberspace Norms

by Robert D. Williamsvia Aegis Paper Series
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

This paper explores two aspects of China’s governance model that pose distinctive challenges to the construction of international cyberspace norms: the embedded and intertwined nature of the Communist Party-state in China’s economy and the expansive conception of national security reflected in Chinese laws and policies. Viewed in conjunction with Chinese cyberspace strategy and activity, these characteristics of “China, Inc. +” raise vexing questions with considerable implications for US-China relations.

Trump’s Ideal America: More Norwegians, Less Norway

by Markos Kounalakisvia McClatchy DC
Thursday, February 22, 2018

Donald Trump admires “winners” and his favored immigrant group, the Norwegians, are winning so much at the Winter Olympics that they are probably getting tired of hauling around medals. If the president were to take a closer look at the Scandinavian nation, however, there is little else beyond athletic success he would personally find appealing.

Five Reasons We All Should Care That A New NAEP Is Almost Here

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

It’s become fashionable in ed-policy circles to decry “misNAEPery,” coined by Mathematica’s Steven Glazerman and defined as the inappropriate use of data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. It’s an important caution to us pundits and journalists not to make definitive declarations about what might be causing national or state test scores to rise or fall when we really have no idea of the true cause or causes.

America Has Held Together Through Worse Times Than Now

quoting Morris P. Fiorinavia Brookings Institution
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) reminded President Trump earlier this year, “America is an idea, not a race.” That idea is actually a plural of concepts based on our Constitution, our system of democratic institutions and norms, and our belief in the American Dream—the notion that regardless of where you come from, you can realize anything, go anywhere.

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Yesterday on Bret Baier’s Special Report, his panel was discussing President Trump’s latest tweets about Russia. Charles Lane suggested that we reflect on how Trump has attacked Barack Obama over Russia and asserted the superiority of toughness towards Putin. “There was a time,” Lane said, when the very fact of such attacks and assertions by a president on his predecessor would widely have been considered outrageous.

When Trials Make Us Better

quoting William Damonvia Inquirer.net
Sunday, February 18, 2018

William Damon’s 1995 classic, “Greater Expectations: Overcoming the Culture of Indulgence in America’s Homes and Schools,” calls the crisis of indulgence, particularly among the youth, a “failure of spirit.” He points out that research has shown how children desire to be of service to others, are open to moral and religious formation, and look for intellectual challenges, but the culture of indulgence has killed all these.

Groupthink, Not The Deep State, Is The Real Culprit

quoting Stephen D. Krasnervia National Interest
Sunday, February 18, 2018

In political science, the “deep state” concept has been used to describe politics in countries like Turkey and Pakistan. In these places, deep-state theorists claim shadowy networks engage in extralegal and illegal activities, including bombings and assassinations, to advance their parochial interests or protect their vision of the regime. Given this context, the term “deep state” surely doesn’t fit an established liberal democracy like the United States.

On Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller released the indictment of the "Internet Research Agency LLC," also known as the Russian troll factory, and a number of other entities and individuals. The indictment states that the Internet Research Agency and the other named defendants "knowingly and intentionally conspired with each other (and with persons known and unknown to the Grand Jury) to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of government through fraud and deceit for the purpose of interfering with the U.S. political and electoral processes, including the presidential election of 2016."

Time's Up: Anti-Trump Forces Face Their Day Of Reckoning

Let's suppose for a minute that Hillary Clinton and all her fellow Resisters, along with all their allies in the Deep State, had accepted the results of the 2016 election, as has been the tradition and expectation.  Remember Hillary's sneering question to Donald at the debates – whether he would accept the election results?  At that time, nobody thought Hillary would be the one to throw the temper tantrum when she lost, much less organize a resistance movement.

Why We're Letting Russians Tell Us How To Vote

quoting Michael McFaulvia WRAL
Saturday, February 17, 2018

If you were a candidate and Russian interference was helping your campaign, would you react with outrage, out of a patriotic duty to national security, or would you deny it was happening? That question, in a nutshell, explains why a Russian disinformation campaign using social media can be so effective. It feeds into the built-in philosophical biases a lot of Americans already have. It makes any government agency investigating interference suspect in the minds of many. The same can be said for media outlets reporting on the evidence.
