H. R. McMaster Firing Would be a Disaster

H. R. McMaster Firing Would be a Disaster

About every two months, there are rumors that Gen. H. R. McMaster might be let go as Trump’s national-security adviser (along with many other stellar appointees).The world, however, is a much more logical and predictable place than it was 14 months ago. We’ve restored ties to the Gulf monarchies; Israel is again treated with respect. There is no talk any more of an ascendant ISIS caliphate. Ukrainians have been armed; Putin has had tighter sanctions slapped on him. NATO-member defense expenditures are up 5 percent. The U.S. military is being rebooted. Controversial moves, such as leaving...

LeBron James Looks Like a Fraud

LeBron James Looks Like a Fraud

So, LeBron James claimed that Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey was simply “misinformed or not really educated on the situation” when he tweeted his support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. “I don’t want to get into a feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke,” James said in an interview before a preseason game at Staples Center. “And so many people could have been harmed not only financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually.” “So just be careful what we tweet and say and we do, even though, yes, we do have freedom of...

Iceland Eliminates People With Down Syndrome

Iceland Eliminates People With Down Syndrome

BS News reported earlier this week that Iceland is leading the world in “eradicating Down syndrome births.”One might be forgiven for assuming that Iceland has developed an innovative treatment for the chromosomal disorder. It turns out Iceland’s solution is much simpler, and much more sinister: using prenatal testing and abortion to systematically exterminate children with Down syndrome. This isn’t progress; it’s eugenics.Prenatal testing is optional in Iceland, but the government mandates that doctors notify women of that option. About 85 percent of expectant mothers undergo the test, and...

No, Science Can’t Tell Us How to Respond to the Coronavirus | National Review

No, Science Can’t Tell Us How to Respond to the Coronavirus | National Review

you thought the coronavirus presented difficult policy questions, don’t worry — we have science.Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted the other day, “The West Coast is — and will continue to be — guided by SCIENCE.”Joe Biden has urged President Trump, “Follow the science, listen to the experts, do what they tell you.”Neil DeGrasse Tyson calls the crisis “a giant experiment in whether the world will listen to scientists, now and going forward.”The invocation of science as the ultimate authority capable of settling questions of how we should govern ourselves is a persistent feature of modern Western...

How to Make China Pay | National Review

How to Make China Pay | National Review

of the big questions facing the international community today is how to hold China legally and politically accountable for all its dishonesty and harm to people around the world. According to reports, U.S. intelligence agencies have confirmed to the White House that China has deliberately understated the number of its people who have contracted and died from the coronavirus epidemic. Such deceit follows Beijing’s recklessness in suppressing news of the origins, rapid spread, and lethality of COVID-19 in December and January. Chinese officials punished doctors who tried to warn of the...

Taiwan: Pariah and Poster Child | National Review

Taiwan: Pariah and Poster Child | National Review

: This is an expanded version of a piece we have published in the .n the middle of the 20th century, there was an expression: “He had a good war.” It was unseemly, maybe, but everyone knew what the expression meant: The person in question had come out of World War II in good shape — even advantaged. In the same way, we might say that Taiwan is having a good pandemic.Those words are terrible to type, but readers may indulge them.Taiwan is enjoying good press all over the world, for its handling of the crisis. One headline reads, “Taiwan’s Coronavirus Moment.” Lots of headlines speak of...

How America Arrived at the Cruel New Normal | National Review

How America Arrived at the Cruel New Normal | National Review

soon, you and I will have to figure out how to navigate a semi-open America where coronavirus is a terrible fact of life. The lockdowns and stay-at-home orders that state and city governments announced in March are breaking down. This is not red-versus-blue. This is reality. Two weeks ago, Georgia’s Republican governor Brian Kemp faced widespread criticism for his easing of restrictions on business and outdoor activities, even as Colorado’s Democratic governor Jared Polis did the same thing. Now most states are joining in.In the past few days, California’s Gavin Newsom has said he will...

Biden as Paradox | National Review

Biden as Paradox | National Review

is now conventional punditry that should Joe Biden win in November, his vice president, in 1944-style, will sooner rather than later become president.Biden, to reboot and secure the identity-politics base, thought he had to discriminate by sex and race in advance by selecting his vice president. But given recent poor performances, Biden’s promise to select a woman or minority or both on the ticket is a wink-and-nod admission that she or he will soon be the real president while on the ballot as vice president.In 2019–20, Biden had moved hard left to get nominated and more or less renounced...

The 1619 Distortion of the Second Amendment | National Review

The 1619 Distortion of the Second Amendment | National Review

–writer Nikole Hannah-Jones had some thoughts on the Second Amendment yesterday:This reference to the 2nd Amendment is a head scratcher only if you don’t know that 2nd Amendment was in fact created to ensure Southern slaveowners the right to maintain & arm slave patrols to put down insurrections amongst the enslaved. Now he’s invoking agnst their descendants— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones)It’s not really a “head scratcher” to comprehend why Americans want to protect their property and lives from looters and the mob. Why a reporter can breezily fabricate history under the banner of one of the...

‘A Year’s Worth of Suicide Attempts in the Last Four Weeks’: California Doctor Calls for End to Lockdown | National Review

The doctor in charge of a Bay Area, Calif. trauma center said the state should end its lockdown orders after an “unprecedented” spike in suicide attempts amid the coronavirus pandemic.“We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,” Dr. Mike deBoisblanc, head of trauma at John Muir Medical Center, local station ABC7. “I mean, we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.” He added that he thinks “it’s time” to end the state shutdown.“I think, originally, this was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to...
