quoting Toomas Hendrik Ilvesvia SiouxlandProud.com
Wednesday, December 26, 2018

In the Estonian capital of Tallinn, three-day-old Oskar Lunde sleeps soundly in his hospital cot, snuggled into a lime green blanket decorated with red butterflies. Across the room, his father turns on a laptop. "Now we will register our child," Andrejs Lunde says with gravity as he inserts his ID card into the card reader. His wife, Olga, looks on proudly. And just like that, Oskar is Estonia's newest citizen. No paper. No fuss.

Mattis And Syria: Get A Grip On The Hysteria!

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review
Saturday, December 22, 2018

While it would have been wiser to leave the 2,000 American troops in Syria longer, both to ensure ISIS’s demise and to protect the Kurds, and while the administration benefited greatly from Secretary James Mattis’s restoration of deterrence, which merited him a much longer tenure, the hysteria over the withdrawal of troops and the unfortunate resignation of Mattis as something end-of-the-world devastating and historically unprecedented is as weird as it is incoherent.

Saturday, December 22, 2018

Hoover Institution fellows Richard Epstein and John Yoo discuss whether the Supreme Court’s immigration ruling is not as dramatic as it sounds; whether President Trump is in genuine legal trouble this time; whether there is a silver lining to the departure of Jim Mattis; whether being tried for the same crime by your state and the feds is double jeopardy; and what the Bill of Rights has to do with nun-chucks.

Der Spiegel’s First-Class Faker

by Josef Joffevia Politico
Friday, December 21, 2018

Fake news wasn’t invented by the Russians. The New York Times had Jayson Blair, who faked dozens of articles and interviews over the years. U.S.A. Today had Jack Kelley, who made up sensational stories about events he had not witnessed and places he had not seen. In both cases, the editors were forced to resign.

The Departure Of Mattis And Engagements In The Middle East

by Victor Davis Hansonvia National Review
Friday, December 21, 2018

The near-destruction of ISIS in a matter of months (losing 99 percent of its landed caliphate), the restoration of sound defense budgeting, a reestablished sense of deterrence, and stable recalibration with allies were the signature achievements of James Mattis. And it seems a mistake not to have him finish a four-year stint at Defense.

China Gets Its Message To Americans But Doesn’t Want To Reciprocate

by Orville Schell, Larry Diamondvia The Wall Street Journal
Friday, December 21, 2018
