How Character and Statecraft Shaped the Post-World War Order

Seventy-two years after the end of World War II, Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s leadership remains a shining example of statecraft for leaders in our own day. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month It is this great British figure that historian and public intellectual Lewis E. Lehrman writes about in his latest book, “Churchill, Roosevelt & Company: Studies in Character and Statecraft.” The book provides Lehrman’s readers with the fruit of a lifetime of deep scholarship. Many assume that American entry into World War II was inevitable. But in fact the U.S. only declared war on the Axis powers after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which was well into the war. American entry into World War II was by no means a given. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In his book, Lehrman reveals … Read entire article »

Trump’s Son in Less Legal Jeopardy Than Son-in-Law Over Russia Meeting, FBI Veteran Says

Even if Donald Trump Jr. helped set up a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer in hopes of learning dirt on Hillary Clinton, the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and another official Trump campaign operative could face greater legal problems, a former FBI official says. Kill Your Cable Bill!

Harvard’s Proposed Policy Would Punish Students for Having Normal Social Lives

For the second time in less than two years, Harvard College Dean Rakesh Khurana is expanding paternalistic restrictions and sanctions on the student body based on whom they choose to be friends with. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month In an email to the student body on July 12, the dean reported that the “USGSO Committee”—which handles policy on “unrecognized single-gender social organizations,” and which the dean co-chairs—released preliminary recommendations to be reviewed by the faculty and then approved by Harvard University’s president, Drew Faust. These recommendations outline a new policy that exceeds the bounds of a prior, already overreaching policy, which will remain in place unless Faust approves the new policy.

How to Make NASA Great Again

In two years, it will have been a half-century since American astronauts first set foot on the moon. Apollo 11 was followed by five more successful voyages to the moon and back, an accomplishment of which NASA is duly proud. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month During the Apollo program, the National Aeronautical and Space Agency was at the top of its game, employing some of the best scientists and engineers the world had to offer. In the ensuing decades, however, national priorities shifted, and NASA saw its fortunes wane. While unmanned probes such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Mars Science Laboratory have enhanced our understanding of our solar system, NASA’s manned projects, the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station, pale in comparison with the agency’s earlier accomplishments.

Returning Seized Compounds to Russia Would Be a Mistake

In May, media reports indicated the Trump administration was considering returning two compounds—one in Maryland and one in New York—to Russia. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Those compounds were seized by the Obama administration last December in response to Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Last week, in an interview with CNN, a senior White House official again raised the possibility of returning the compounds to Russia, saying the administration may do so “because we want to give collaboration, cooperation a chance.” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Doing so, however, would be a huge mistake. Giving back the espionage compounds today in the hopes of seeing improved behavior from Russia in the future is naïve, and it would only serve to embolden Moscow.

The Hypocrisy of Linda Sarsour and Her Use of ‘Jihad’

Linda Sarsour is fighting back after being criticized for calling for “jihad” against President Donald Trump and his administration. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month During a speech at the Islamic Society of North America Convention, she said: I hope, that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House. Although Sarsour clearly called for a nonviolent form of jihad—and anyone who suggests otherwise is being intellectually dishonest—hearing the co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington … Read entire article »

Most of Obama’s Green Policies Persist at Department of Defense
