Does The United States Have A New Grand Strategy?

quoting George P. Shultzvia In Homeland Security
Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Some say that the United States has not had a grand strategy since the policy of containment during the Cold War. What is a grand strategy? How is a grand strategy different from a national security strategy and/or a national defense strategy? In his speech before the United Nations General Assembly last month, was President Donald Trump attempting to establish a new America First grand strategy, one that will endure beyond his administration?

No Safe Spaces: Free Speech Under Attack

mentioning Michael McConnellvia Independent Institute
Thursday, November 7, 2019

Once upon a time, universities were the ultimate forum of ideas. Today however, college campuses have become the most intolerant places for diverse and even conventional viewpoints. The First Amendment, intellectual freedom, and the very idea of free speech are under attack with threats, bans, and even violence. A growing number of Americans don’t even believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for campuses to be “safe spaces” in which open debate and discussions are not allowed. This disturbing movement has now been extending beyond colleges and into the wider world. Will we all be silenced for expressing ideas that may not conform with the politically correct? And what can be done to restore constitutional and civil liberties?

A frightening recent report: an estimated 200 million Muslim girls and women alive today have been forced to go through female genital mutilation; also frightening: in America and Europe most of the leaders of the feminist movement have remained all but silent amidst this horror. There have been, thankfully though, a few exceptions. The most notable of them has been Ayaan Hirsi Ali who has become the leading voice in the fight against this attack upon the body, heart and spirit of so many.

An Overview Of “Resilience” And Climate Change

Monday, February 19, 2018

What do we mean when we speak in terms of “resilience?” Why has “resilience” become the hot buzzword, and why is it useful for political leaders who want to avoid saying the words “climate change?” Will the choice of words make a difference when it comes to the need to design infrastructure – roads, bridges, tunnels, houses, factories, power plants, airports, railroads – with rising sea levels, increased storms, and hotter temperatures in mind?

Understanding The California Mind

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 Downsides Of Mueller's Russia Indictment

by Jack Goldsmithvia Lawfare
Monday, February 19, 2018

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia indictment represents “a remarkable rebuke of the president’s claims” that the Russia investigation was a “phony Democrat excuse for losing the election,” the Lawfare team concluded. The indictment also educates the American public about the reality and scale of the Russian threat to the American political process more credibly than last year’s intelligence community report on the matter. Perhaps it will help the United States build resilience against future attacks.
