The China Model: Unexceptional Exceptionalism

by Elizabeth Economyvia Socialism and Free Market Capitalism: The Human Prosperity Project
Friday, December 4, 2020

At the 19th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in October 2017, CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping startled international observers by claiming that “the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics is now flying high and proud for all to see . . . blazing a new trail for other developing countries to achieve modernization. It offers a new option for other countries and nations who want to speed up their development while preserving their independence, and it offers Chinese wisdom and a Chinese approach to solving the problems facing humanity.

Cold War II

by Niall Fergusonvia National Review
Thursday, December 3, 2020

There was a first world war. Then there was a second. They were not identical. But they were sufficiently similar for no one to argue about the nomenclature. Similarly, there was Cold War I, which lasted from the late 1940s until the late 1980s. And now we are in Cold War II. This new Cold War is not the same as Cold War I. But it is sufficiently similar to deserve the name. It was George Orwell who coined the phrase “Cold War,” in a column published in the (London) Tribune on October 19, 1945, with the title “You and the Atomic Bomb.”

Yes, Trump Can Pardon Himself And His Family

by John Yoovia National Review
Friday, December 4, 2020

Even though the election has ended, the controversies will not. With Michael Flynn now in the rear-view mirror, President Trump reportedly is considering issuing pardons to his children (Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka), his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and even Rudy Giuliani, though none have been charged with a crime. Giuliani has returned the gesture by noting that Trump technically could pardon himself too.
