by Paul R. Gregoryvia The Hill
Thursday, November 7, 2019

To Regain Policy Competence: The Software of American Public Problem-Solving

by Philip Zelikowvia Texas National Security Network
Friday, September 20, 2019

Lanhee Chen: Warren’s 52 Trillion Dollar Medicare-For-All

by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall Review
Friday, November 8, 2019

$52 trillion dollars. That’s the price-tag for Elizabeth Warren’s plan to bring single-payer, government-run health care to America. And, believe it or not, that number may actually be a conservative estimate for what Medicare-for-all would cost.

Self-dealing In Ukraine: The Core Of The Impeachment Inquiry

by Philip Zelikowvia Lawfare
Monday, October 21, 2019
As the Ukraine story develops, the public focus has remained largely on wrongdoing by the president outside the realm of criminal law, focusing instead on President Trump’s apparent use of his office for personal gain. On one level, this makes sense: Impeachment is only about removal of the president from office, not about criminal prosecution and imprisonment. So the standards and processes for impeachment are different.

The Berlin Wall’s Chinese Shadow

quoting Niall Ferguson, Timothy Garton Ashvia The Washington Post
Thursday, November 7, 2019
Even more than the commemoration marked a decade ago, the 30th anniversary this Saturday of the fall of the Berlin Wall feels like a reckoning. A full generation of people weren’t alive during the heady days of 1989, when the collapse of a literal and symbolic barrier preceded the implosion of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

Law Enforcement As A Counterintelligence Tool

quoting Jack Goldsmithvia Lawfare
Tuesday, March 6, 2018

A few years ago, shortly after stepping down as Assistant Attorney General for National Security, I published a long article called Law Enforcement as a Counterterrorism Tool. As its title suggests, the article’s central thesis was that law enforcement methods are useful in combating international terrorism. I did not try to make the case that law enforcement is the only, or even necessarily the best, way of combating terrorism. I argued merely that it is one very useful way to disrupt plots, incapacitate terrorists, and gather intelligence.
