On Thoughtful Pauses

Joe Biden is tottering around Europe with the poise, grace, and dignity of an angry old drunk muttering obscenities while bouncing off a slot machine at a seedy casino .

Spies without Masters

The big story today is DR’s revelation that Denmark’s foreign intelligence service (the FE, analogous to America’s CIA) cooperated with America’s NSA to monitor the digital communications of Germany’s top leadership: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, her Foreign Minister, and the opposition leader, among other political leaders from northern European nations.

For example, in early March a panel of 50 “experts” (sorry, experts, but you’ve earned those scare quotes) determined that the Chinese government “bears…

Biden’s Magnificent Moment

Back in January I wrote about the Boomerang Principle: “What you do to your adversaries today, they will do to you tomorrow.” (I even offered an alternative phrasing: “The most important teacher of your adversary is you.”) A newly released Campus Reform video helps to illustrate just how damaging the consequences of the Boomerang Principle can…
