Comey Vs. The World

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Powerline
Tuesday, May 21, 2019

Eventually the “holier than thou” find themselves at loggerheads with the rest of the world. Call it the revenge of the “thous.” In James Comey’s mind, no one is as holy as he is. People he used to respect, like Rod Rosenstein and William Barr, certainly aren’t. President Trump ate their souls. Comey admits the same thing nearly happened to him, but he was holy enough to pull back from the brink. The fact that Trump fired him helped.

quoting Michael R. Auslinvia ABC.net

You might've expected celebrations this year to mark 40 years since the US and China "normalised" relations. Key points: US normalised relations with Beijing in 1979 for the first time since China's founding in 1949 At the same time, the US severed relations with Taiwan Experts say China and the US appear to have lapsed into a "new cold war" These kind of anniversaries are usually met with fanfare — a high-profile state visit, a joint communique.

Tax Reform

by John H. Cochrane via Grumpy Economist
Thursday, September 28, 2017

I read with interest the Unified Framework for Fixing our Broken Tax code. The bottom line is a cut in the corporate tax rate to about 20%, roughly the world average. It also proposes an end to the estate and gift tax.These are small steps in the right direction. It's not a once-in-a-generation clean-out-all-the-junk tax reform.

Whither Indonesia?

by Paul Wolfowitzvia The Caravan
Wednesday, September 27, 2017

The news from Jakarta last April 20 presented a very sad juxtaposition. On the one hand, there was US Vice President Mike Pence, expressing his admiration for Indonesia’s tradition of religious tolerance and moderation and reassuring Indonesians on behalf of the Trump administration, that the new visa restrictions would not apply to Indonesians.  At the same time, the Acting Governor (equivalent of Mayor) of Jakarta, Basuki Cahaya Purnama – commonly known as Ahok – was facing a court in that city on the criminal charge of blaspheming Islam.
