How Charter Supporters Can Win Over Joe Biden

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Thursday, October 22, 2020

On paper, it seems like Joe Biden would champion the cause of expanding high-quality charter schools. He’s a longtime centrist Democrat, and centrist Democrats usually love charter schools, going back to Bill Clinton. He was Barack Obama’s vice president, and Obama has long loved charter schools. Biden was brought back from political near-death thanks to the support of Black voters, and Black voters love charter schools.

John Brennan Denies Blame For Calling Trump A ‘Traitor,’ Says ‘I Received Bad Information’

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia American Thinker
Tuesday, March 26, 2019

The man who used to run the CIA, and lost his job when Donald Trump took office, did a huge amount of damage to the United States by calling the sitting president a traitor. Because of his presumed access to information unavailable to the public, many foreign leaders had reason to believe that they could resist the demands and requests of President Trump by simply outlasting him in office. Think Kim Jong un, Xi Jin ping, Angela Merkel, and of course Vladimir Putin for starters.

I know. The title could be talking about pretty much any national strategy written in the last 15 years. And that's the point. In the interview, Dr. Amy Zegart and I discuss the national cyber strategy and what's wrong with it, besides all the bloviating. We also explore the culture clash between DOD and Silicon Valley (especially Google), and whether the right response to the Mueller report would be to conduct a thorough investigation into how the Intelligence Community and Justice handled the collusion allegations at the start of the Trump Administration.
