The China Model: Unexceptional Exceptionalism

by Elizabeth Economyvia Socialism and Free Market Capitalism: The Human Prosperity Project
Friday, December 4, 2020

At the 19th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in October 2017, CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping startled international observers by claiming that “the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics is now flying high and proud for all to see . . . blazing a new trail for other developing countries to achieve modernization. It offers a new option for other countries and nations who want to speed up their development while preserving their independence, and it offers Chinese wisdom and a Chinese approach to solving the problems facing humanity.

A Monetary Mind At The Treasury

by John B. Taylorvia Project Syndicate
Friday, December 4, 2020

Former US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's forthcoming appointment to lead the Department of the Treasury is good news for advocates of rules-based monetary policymaking. Following a period of emergency measures, what the US needs now is a return to clear and predictable decision-making.

Cold War II

by Niall Fergusonvia National Review
Thursday, December 3, 2020

There was a first world war. Then there was a second. They were not identical. But they were sufficiently similar for no one to argue about the nomenclature. Similarly, there was Cold War I, which lasted from the late 1940s until the late 1980s. And now we are in Cold War II. This new Cold War is not the same as Cold War I. But it is sufficiently similar to deserve the name. It was George Orwell who coined the phrase “Cold War,” in a column published in the (London) Tribune on October 19, 1945, with the title “You and the Atomic Bomb.”

Yes, Trump Can Pardon Himself And His Family

by John Yoovia National Review
Friday, December 4, 2020

Even though the election has ended, the controversies will not. With Michael Flynn now in the rear-view mirror, President Trump reportedly is considering issuing pardons to his children (Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka), his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and even Rudy Giuliani, though none have been charged with a crime. Giuliani has returned the gesture by noting that Trump technically could pardon himself too.

From Trade War To Tech War To Cold War

by Niall Fergusonvia Strategika
Thursday, March 28, 2019

If you had told me 30 years ago America would be in another Cold War with another communist superpower by 2019, I would not have believed you. If you had told me that, simultaneously, socialism would be the height of fashion with young Americans, I would have directed you to a psychiatrist. But here we are. Three decades ago Francis Fukuyama published his seminal essay “The End of History?”, hailing the victory of liberal capitalism over all its ideological competitors, but especially over communism. The essay he needs to write today is “The Upend of History?”

Brexit Has Become A Royal Pain. Queen Elizabeth Needs To Step In And Take A Stand

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Queen Elizabeth II may be the only person who can fix the Brexit mess. She has the power to wave her scepter and declare a solution. It’s a power that the royals have not exercised in years, but at 92 years old and with her nation riven, the Sovereign should step in and decide on the United Kingdom’s sovereignty.

U.S. Middle East Strategy

by Samuel Tadrosvia The Caravan
Thursday, March 28, 2019

The Middle East remains today a troublesome area for the United States. American interests in the region are threatened by a host of adversaries from a resurgent Russia, a hegemonic Iranian desire and campaign of subversion, and Jihadi threat that has morphed from Al Qaeda to the Islamic State. Moreover, despite long U.S. investments and alliances, the region remains deeply anti-American.

Judicial Watch Seeks Records Of Brennan’s And Clapper’s Role In Spreading Russia Lies

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Liberty Headlines
Thursday, March 28, 2019

With the Mueller Report‘s debunked allegations of Russian collusion behind us, conservatives increasingly have sounded a drumbeat to hold accountable those responsible enough for the real misinformation campaign. Once again, Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests from the transparency/accountability guardians at Judicial Watch may be the catalyst that helps set it in motion.

A Fine Whiskey With Victor Davis Hanson

Thursday, March 28, 2019
In this great interview with Victor Davis Hanson, Dave Sussman makes a startling observation of Donald Trump and the erudite classicist Victor Davis Hanson, two men who would seem to differ as much as any in the public sphere in their character, background, and intellect, that each is “the everyman,” someone who speaks clearly to everyone and evinces a plainspoken authenticity.

Who Wants To Be Bernie’s Nurse?

quoting Charles Blahousvia The Wall Street Journal
Thursday, March 28, 2019

Would Bernie Sanders be able to find enough doctors to practice socialized medicine? As he runs for the Democratic party nomination for President, Sen. Sanders (Socialist, Vt.) this week rejected any Democratic health care reform which does not ban private insurance and force all Americans into government-run care. But news from an existing socialized medical system serves as a reminder that providers of care may wish to avoid such a system just as much as patients do.
