Will Newsom’s Cabinet Reflect All Of California?

by Bill Whalenvia The Sacramento Bee
Thursday, December 13, 2018

Seven days into the new year, I’m looking at the same quandary facing many a weekday commuter in congested Northern California: how to juggle same-day events in Sacramento and Silicon Valley. On Jan. 7, Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom will take his oath of office. A few hours later, college football’s playoff championship will get underway at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara – on an impossibly good day, a two-hour drive.

A Crisis That Hasn’t Happened

by Jack Goldsmithvia The Weekly Standard
Friday, December 14, 2018

When President Trump forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign on November 7 and appointed the unqualified Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, just about everyone assumed that special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was in trouble. Whitaker, after all, had sharply criticized the investigation before coming to the Justice Department. And now he would be supervising Mueller with an array of tools—including the power to fire Mueller, to starve him of funds, and to reverse his important legal decisions—that could slow and maybe kill the investigation.

Herbert Hoover’s Travels To Finland

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

In 1938, Finland had a lot to celebrate. Independence had been declared two decades earlier. It was also the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the first Swedish / Finnish colony in Delaware.

When Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom is sworn in on Jan. 7, he will inherit record economic prosperity. California has a projected $15 billion budget surplus and a 4.1 percent unemployment rate.

Aristotle In America

quoting Harvey C. Mansfield, Peter Berkowitz, Hoover Institutionvia The New Criterion
Thursday, December 13, 2018

“Nothing is so obscure it does not deserve to be found.” These words are from Delba Winthrop’s 1974 dissertation on Book III of Aristotle’s Politics, a document high on the list of things that deserve to be found. When Winthrop died in 2006, her dissertation was still unpublished despite the protestations of her husband, Harvey Mansfield, perhaps the dean of conservative political philosophy in this country.

One of the great conservative thinkers of our time (or any time for that matter) is Thomas Sowell.

[Subscription Required] Welcome to the Wild East. First, there are Bulgarian Gypsies with dancing bears. Then there is a Polish village whose inhabitants dress up as Hobbits from The Lord of the Rings, along with Gandalf, played by a woman, and Gollum—in private life a farmer who receives European Union subsidies. There are hundreds of thousands of communist-era bunkers in Albania, some of them now being demolished by men in search of rebar.

Democracy, Populism, And Polytheism: Islam In India

by Aishwary Kumarvia The Caravan
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Extreme fascination with idols, statues, and names is widespread across South Asia and the ritualistic violence that accompanies such practices is neither modern nor singular to India, the region’s most doggedly democratic and unequivocally polytheistic country. In fact, until this past November, when the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled India’s colossal 182-meter high Statue of Unity, which now stands as the world’s highest monument to a revisionist history of nationalism, the record for height belonged to a more modest Buddhist statue in China, shorter than Modi’s populist gift to India by more than 100 feet.

Religion And Politics In Lebanon: The Case Of A Christian ‘Alliance’ With Hezbollah

It may be somewhat inconvenient for the secular Western mind to acknowledge the fact that ultimate identity on both the personal and group levels in a place like the Middle East remains conceived primarily in religious terms.  If this is indeed a given, then it should hardly be surprising that religion and politics become intricately intertwined within and across both communities and states in the region.

The median price of a single-family home in California has increased to about $546,000. This is a record high, and is more than 80 percent above the 2012 median of $300,000. California home prices are likely peaking now, and I expect that they will decline soon.

What The New Congress Can Learn From Aristotle

by Peter Berkowitzvia Real Clear Politics
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

The swearing in of the 116th Congress next month returns divided government to Washington. A Democratic-controlled House coupled with a fortified Republican Senate majority is likely to exacerbate the rancor and vitriol that have suffused national politics since long before Donald Trump’s theatrical announcement in the summer of 2015 that he was running for president.
