Disruption Isn’t Enough
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/11/2018 9:33:23 AM

Donald Trump has proved in 18 months that he can disrupt the global status quo, for better (Iran) and worse (trade). The question as he brawls with his G-7 allies after their annual summit and now meets with adversary Kim Jong Un is whether the President knows that disruption isn’t enough. Sooner or later he has to contribute to a better world order instead of merely blowing up the old one. Unlike most of the U.S.-Europe foreign-policy elite, we think the world needed some shaking up. Barack Obama saw America as an overstretched power that needed restraining for the world’s

I dumped the WSJ because of articles like this. They seem to hate it that a businessman actually got to be president. This paper is not pro business.

My disgust with the WSJ led me to cancel my subscription about four years ago - -

This is the feckless Pubbie establishment on full display.

Isn’t that interesting. I see the left as tearing down walls without the least bit of curiosity as to why they were built in the first place let alone a clue with regard to how that purpose will be satisfied once the wall is down.

Frankly I think Trump has been crystal clear. Europe and others are going to have to pay their own way and stop living on the backs of the American taxpayer. It’s up to Europe to figure out if they’ll have to work 40 hours a week and cut back to half of the summer off to compete with us on a level playing field. That’s not our problem. Time to retire the Marshall plan.

I used to avidly read Jamaes Taranto´s column Best of The Web, it was very good I recall.

Alas, first that was termintated then the paywall went up, and then the articles all started to sound like Bill Kristol so now if I see that a link is to the WSJ, I no longer follow it.

Minus one .... others have made up for the loss, IBD tends to have a high percentage of acceptable articles ....

The reflexive ´never Trump´ jerk of the knee only exists to prevent critical thinking. It is a kind of reverse Trump derangement syndrome, just another manifestation of a closed mind.
Trump is not God, neither is he infallible. He is wrong about things, and makes mistakes just like you or I.
This issue is a serious one, and Trump has made many statements that give the impression that he is very uninformed on trade issues. Slamming other countries for doing the things we do comes off as either arrogant or ignorant, and the other leaders naturally hold that in low regard.
Trump has, since election, been expanding tariffs and government subsidies (except in couple of areas where they have declined, like wind and solar) while demanding that others do the opposite.
There are valid reasons to think this strategy could backfire.

The Sexting Scandal That Toppled One

It had been two days since William Voge was publicly disgraced, and the 61-year-old globe-trotting lawyer couldn’t sleep. His family, his colleagues and competitors, everyone it seemed, knew about the sexually explicit texts he exchanged last year with a woman he had never met in person, and still hasn’t. The fallout scandalized the legal profession and would cost Mr. Voge his job at Latham & Watkins LLP, one of the highest grossing law firms in the world, where he was chairman. Mr. Voge slipped out of his $5 million house in Solana Beach, Calif., that night in March. He went to a

Let’s Talk About the Black Abortion Rate
Wall Street Journal, by Jason L. Riley    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2018 9:09:19     Post Reply
As Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination tees up another national debate about reproductive rights, is it too much to ask that abortion’s impact on the black population be part of the discussion? When the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in 1973, polling showed that blacks were less likely than whites to support abortion. Sixties-era civil rights activists like Fannie Lou Hamer and Whitney Young had denounced the procedure as a form of genocide. Jesse Jackson called abortion “murder” and once told a black newspaper in Chicago that “we used to look for death from the man in the blue

Trump makes a shrewd political

By picking Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, President Trump showed that credentials and connections still matter — when backed up by results. One of the most scholarly members of the judiciary, Kavanaugh’s more than 300 opinions are read widely and influence courts across the country — including the one that he now hopes to join. There are few if any more respected lower-court judges. More important than his erudition is Kavanaugh’s intense commitment to constitutional structure. As Anthony Kennedy, the justice he clerked for and now seeks to succeed, often emphasized, this is vital not simply to the functioning

AUSTIN — U.S. Rep. Beto O´Rourke joined Austin legend Willie Nelson at the annual Willie´s Picnic on Wednesday night. O´Rourke, an El Paso Democrat running for Sen. Ted Cruz´s seat in the fall, tucked an "I Love You El Paso" T-shirt into his pants. Strumming a guitar, he sang "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" — a message on brand for famous pothead Willie Nelson and O´Rourke´s pro-marijuana legalization stance. After they finished that song, Nelson shouted out, "Thank you Beto!" He kept the weed theme going as they rolled into the next song, "It´s All Going

Intersectional Bookstore Comes to a Dead End

In Other Words is no more. The bookstore and “feminist community center” made famous by the IFC comedy “Portlandia” closed its doors Saturday. A statement on its website blamed the closure on “patriarchy,” “white supremacy” and “capitalism.” (Snip)At In Other Words, the customer wasn’t always right. In fact, he was expected to “abide by” seven “guidelines” including this one: “Cishetero-patriarchy exists, white supremacy exists, ableism exists, racism exists, colonialism never ended, capitalism is bad. This is not a space where we argue about the basics of the situation.” The bookstore was open only a few days a week. It periodically

Two former Ohio State University wrestlers accusing Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan of ignoring sexual misconduct by a university physician more than two decades ago have a history of failed business dealings, lawsuits, harassment allegations, and in the case of one accuser, an 18 month prison sentence for fraud. One of the former wrestlers, Mike DiSabato, is also being accused by the widow of a Marine who was killed in combat in Iraq of intimidating and bullying her over a memorial fund set up in her husband’s name. “I question the intent, the authenticity, the verity, that Mike DiSabato shares in any of

California’s Climate Extremism
City Journal, by Joel Kotkin    Original Article

Environmental extremism increasingly dominates California. The state is making a concerted attack on energy companies in the courts; a bill is pending in the legislature to fine waiters $1,000—or jail them—if they offer people plastic straws; and UCLA issued a report describing pets as a climate threat. The state has taken upon itself the mission of limiting the flatulence of cows and other farm animals. As the self-described capital of the anti-Trump resistance, California presents itself as the herald of a green, more socially and racially just society. That view has been utterly devastated by a new report from Chapman

   

 



 
Is Beto O´Rourke the Next Wendy Davis?
PJ Media, by Liz Sheld    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/3/2018 7:43:46     Post Reply
Beto O’Rourke looks increasingly likely to be this year’s version of Wendy Davis. Remember her? The liberal darling who ran against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott but lost by a bigger-than-predicted margin because she just didn’t appeal to a bunch of Texas voters Democrats should be able to grab? Right. O’Rourke probably won’t lose by as much as Davis (the most recent University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll has him trailing Ted Cruz by five points, where Davis lost by about 20), but he has the same basic problem: he’s extremely exciting to rich, white liberals in places like Austin and Dallas. He’s

A Thai youth soccer team and its coach were found alive Monday in a vast, flooded cave complex where they disappeared more than a week ago. “We found them safe," Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said. "But the operation isn’t over." It was not immediately clear when the group would be removed from the cave. Osatanakorn said the rescue was underway and conditions of the players were being evaluated. Photos sent from the forward rescue team showed some of the boys smiling for the camera. The smiles fueled optimism for their ecstatic family members awaiting word outside the cave, the Bangkok Post reported. The

Whatever its larger meaning or impact, Representative Joseph Crowley’s stunning loss to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in last Tuesday’s primary election already has set off one tremor within the Democratic Party: It has thrown House leadership into chaos. Mr. Crowley is chairman of the Democratic caucus, making him the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House. He also was the heir apparent to the minority leader, Nancy Pelosi. Ms. Pelosi, now 78, has herded Democratic cats for nearly 16 years and has made clear her desire to stay put if the party wins back the majority in November. But she’s expected to face a serious

Now that the world has digested the Horowitz report, notice how much of the story it doesn’t tell. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is treated as a closed loop when, in fact, much of its decision making was based on intelligence and advice supplied by other agencies. Michael Horowitz deals with some of this information in a classified appendix, which the public can’t see. Even so, as Justice Department inspector general, he is not authorized to examine and dissect the internal communications and decision-making of other agencies the way he did the FBI’s. Yet the necessity of doing so fairly screams

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter.

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen.

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
