An Ex-Trump Insider Looks To Our Future With Russia And China

Thursday, October 22, 2020

On his first morning as President Trump’s national security adviser, in 2017, H. R. McMaster invited me to drop by his office. He had heard that The New York Times was getting ready to report on a classified U.S. operation that attempted to sabotage North Korea’s missile programs with cyberstrikes. “Is this the revelation of the modern-day Enigma codes?” he asked, the military historian searching for an analogy from the World War II operation to crack German ciphers.

Socialism Is No Longer Just A Specter

quoting John H. Cochranevia The Washington Post
Friday, October 23, 2020

[Subscription Required] In 1906, Werner Sombart, the German economist, explained America’s resistance to socialism in five words, “roast beef and apple pie,” his shorthand for affluence. John Cochrane of Stanford’s Hoover Institution, notes that in the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve launched “creditor bailouts, propping up asset prices to keep investors from losing money, buying unprecedented assets.” The risk of moral hazard — incentives for reckless behavior — is obvious.

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.
