A ballot measure will appear on California’s November 2020 ballot that would fundamentally change property taxes on non-agricultural businesses with more than fifty employees.

China Finds That Trump Does Have A Principle

by Niall Fergusonvia Boston Globe
Monday, May 20, 2019

As presidents go, Donald Trump is unlikely to be remembered for his principles. But he has one. In “Fear: Trump in the White House,” Bob Woodward describes how the president wrote “Trade is bad” in the margins of a draft speech. When his economic adviser Gary Cohn asked why he believed this, Trump replied: “I just do. I’ve had these views for 30 years.”

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

He won a Bronze Star for heroism in the Vietnam War and later attended law school at the University of Virginia. He has since spent nearly a half century in either private legal practice or law enforcement, including 12 years as director of the FBI. Mueller epitomizes the old WASP establishment.

What The Mueller Report Tells Us About Putin, Russia And Trump's Election

by Paul R. Gregoryvia The Hill
Tuesday, May 21, 2019

The celebratory messages reportedly circulated within Russian government circles following Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election are oft-cited as proof of Russian collusion. This mood reportedly was shared by the Russian people, who had been told that Trump had no chance against the corrupt American establishment. Russia’s jubilation is consistent with ex-British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to win.

The Epidemic Of Electronic Deletions

by Victor Davis Hansonvia The National Review
Tuesday, May 21, 2019

There are lots of ways to adjudicate the present political divide over the collusion hoax. One method might be to see whether those targeted by Robert Mueller had ever begun accusing each other of “collusion” to save their own skins. That did not happen.

The Markets Are Asleep At The Wheel

quoting Niall Fergusonvia American Enterprise Institute
Monday, May 20, 2019

Markets do not have the best of past records in pricing in major systemic risks to the global economy that later materialized and that then caused substantial market declines. Judging by how sanguine markets currently seem to be about the unusual constellation of major risks facing the world economy, we could very well be on the cusp of another episode on which we will look back and ask ourselves what were the markets thinking.

For those who believe a U.S. war with Iran would be disastrous for regional stability, U.S. national interests, and the civilians who would be caught in the crossfire—and for those who believe any decision on bringing the country into war must require public debate and congressional approval—this is a worrying moment.

The Cold War’s Unlikely Duo: The Secret Rendezvous Between Taiwan And The Soviet Union

Thursday, March 8, 2018

By the early 1960s, the Sino-Soviet alliance began to show signs of strain. Polemical battles were under way, and shortly these battles were beginning to split the international Communist movement. As the rift intensified during the Cultural Revolution (1966–76), Mao Zedong elevated the Soviet Union to the rank of social imperialists, while the Red Guards harassed the Soviet diplomatic staff, and border incidents reached a new height.
