Russian Meddling And The Mueller Report

by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall
Monday, April 29, 2019

While Democrats and Republicans argue over what to make of the Mueller Report, one thing is abundantly clear from its hundreds of pages: Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election should not have come as a surprise to anyone—let alone President Obama and others in his administration who were asleep at the switch when it happened.

Japan’s Eightfold Fence

by Michael R. Auslinvia American Affairs
Monday, April 29, 2019

For Westerners sympathetically acculturated to accepting radical multiculturalism, Japan offers an almost shocking vision of an alternate reality. As engaged as the Japanese are with the world through trade, diplomacy, study, and the like, they also live in a society that celebrates both its uniqueness and its segregation from the rest of the world. Perhaps some of that is natural to an island nation, but this feeling of detachment exists in a society whose wealth has come primarily from economic exchange outside its borders, and the surface of whose national life is largely indistinguishable from the modern West.

Donald Trump Can Deliver Britain A Post-Brexit Trade Boost

by Michael R. Auslinvia Financial Times
Monday, April 29, 2019

While the world waits to see if the US and China can call a truce in their tariff war, President Donald Trump is quietly making potentially major trade moves with the UK and Japan. Halfway through his term, Mr Trump may finally begin to make good on his oft-repeated goal of concluding bilateral fair trade pacts.


The Old Era Of Sino-U.S. Relations Is Over — And There’s No Going Back

by Michael R. Auslinvia The Washington Post
Monday, April 29, 2019

The 40th anniversary of the normalization of Sino-U.S. relations, which took place on the first day of this year, passed almost unnoticed. Instead of a joint commemoration or high-profile speeches, Washington and Beijing instead traded thinly disguised threats: President Trump signed legislation designed to counter China’s growing power in the Indo-Pacific, while Chinese leader Xi Jinping again urged his military to be prepared to wage war.

One Country, One System, &C.

mentioning Harvey C. Mansfieldvia National Review
Friday, April 26, 2019

Around Hong Kong, the noose is tightening. This was probably inevitable. In 1997, when Britain handed Hong Kong over to the Chinese government — i.e., the Chinese Communist Party — Beijing promised “one country, two systems.” In other words, Hong Kong could remain free while the rest of China was Communist.

quoting Andrew Grottovia The Washington Post
Friday, April 26, 2019

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority did the right thing when it extended the deadline for proposals from manufacturers for its next series of rail cars. WMATA’s decision is good news, provided that it addresses cybersecurity concerns related to the purchase of new rail cars.

It’s Time To Talk About Mandatory National Service For Canadian Youth

quoting Niall Fergusonvia Toronto Sun
Saturday, April 27, 2019

There’s something not quite right with society today — the way we interact with each other, the way we come together or don’t come together as a community. Pretty much everyone seems to feel this way – that there’s been a surge in anti-social behaviour — regardless of where they sit on the political spectrum or even if they don’t sit on it at all.

Brextravaganza: More Time Is A Blessing – For The UK And The EU Both

quoting Timothy Garton Ashvia The German Times
Friday, April 26, 2019

Is Brexit a wash? The question is not as absurd as it once might have been, not since the European Union heads of state agreed on April 10 to once more extend the date for the UK leaving the EU. The chaos in London, which has caused so much headshaking and frustration on the Continent in recent weeks, has an upside: the nonsense of Brexit and the full extent of its consequences has once again been laid bare before the eyes of Britons. Now ever more British citizens are asking: What in the world are we doing?
