Trump and Acheson

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 20:55:45 EST

The thing to remember about President Trump's threats in respect of Korea is the bitter lessons of history. The Korean war happened after, among other things, a famous or infamous speech by an American tribune. It left the communists with the impression that we might not view our vital national interests as extending to Korea. Before you could say Jack Robinson, we were at war.Not only that but the speech was made by no less a Panjandrum than Secretary of State Acheson. He spoke in January...

Forbes' Double Jubilee

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:05:12 EST

What a contrast. While the diplomats and heads of state were quarreling at the United Nations, we dropped in on the 100th anniversary of Forbes Magazine. There, at Pier Sixty on the Hudson River, hundreds of readers, advertisers, and writers showed up for a buffet dinner with the magazine's chairman and editor-in-chief, Steve Forbes, and a galaxy of capitalist and cultural heroes.It turned out to be a diverse crowd. Black, white, right, left, American, foreign. Oilman Boone Pickens, rapper and...

Trump at Turtle Bay

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 14:51:13 EST

It takes some brass for President Rouhani of Iran to suggest as he did in the wake of President Trump's speech at the United Nations that if Mr. Trump backs out of the nuclear deal, "no one will trust America again." The truth is that it's only by decertifying the Iran deal, redeeming the pledge of his winning presidential campaign, that the president can ensure that confidence in America will be maintained.This is but one angle to a brilliant, blunt, and broad-gauged speech. The president...

Harvard Comes to Its Senses

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 13:44:02 EST

Congratulations are in order to Harvard University for rescinding its invitation to Private Manning to be a visiting fellow of the Institute of Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. The school had announced the visiting fellowship for the convicted spy only two days earlier. It was immediately met with objections; particularly pointed protests came from several figures who have ties to the school, including two CIA directors and distinguished journalist William Kristol.The...

The Next Appeasement?

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 11:28:51 EST

It will be only a matter of days before the Democratic Party press in America starts taking up the suggestion of Chancellor Merkel of Germany that we seek with North Korea a pact of appeasement like the one the Obama administration engineered with the ayatollahs at Iran. "I could imagine such a format being used to end the North Korea conflict," Frau Merkel told the Frankfurter Allgemeine. Were Germany asked to participate, the chancellor warned, she would say yes "immediately."

The Korean Appeasement

Mon, 4 Sep 2017 07:31:20 EST

The big news in respect of North Korea is not so much the communists' claim to have lit off an H-bomb but President Trump's warning to South Korea in respect of appeasement. "South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!" is the way the president put it in a message sent out on the internet Sunday. We can't recall a previous president having used that kind of language in cautioning our South Korean ally . . .

Contempt for Contempt

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 08:19:00 EST

President Trump's pardon of Sheriff Joseph Arpaio of the crime of contempt is no doubt going to be met by the left with contempt. Under our law, after all, a pardon fully erases the guilt, as if the crime had never been committed. Even before the Arpaio pardon was issued, the New York Times dragged in professor Martin Redish of Northwestern Law School to suggest that such a pardon could be challenged because the sheriff was convicted of, as the professor put it, "violating constitutional rights, in defiance of a court order involving racial profiling." Good luck with that theory, professor. . . .

The Federal Reserve Moment

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 18:49:41 EST

If there were ever a moment for President Trump and the Republican Congress to make their move in respect of the Federal Reserve, this is it. That's because officials of the Federal Reserve are stumped over what the New York Times's headline writers call a "new reality" the combination of low inflation and low unemployment. Maybe the Congress can be of some assistance.By, say, making good on the Republican national platform. After all, by the Fed's formulas and Keynesian ideology low...

'Down With Big Business'

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 20:19:29 EST

That was the title of one of the Wall Street Journal's most famous editorials on why the "very biggest businesses are such unreliable allies in the fight to preserve a free enterprise economy." It was one of the editorials cited by the Pulitzer Prize board when in 1980 it awarded the Journal's storied editor at the time, Robert Bartley, journalism's highest award.We re-read the editorial in the wake of the collapse of two of President Trump's business councils. The latest crisis isn't...

The Robert E. Lee Lustration

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 19:41:38 EST

The issue in Virginia is, in our view, the statue of Robert E. Lee. Why is it there at Charlottesville? For what does it stand? Was the city right to decide to take it down? What about all the other places that have monuments to the general? We read that there are more than a thousand. There is also Arlington House-the Robert E. Lee Memorial, amid America's national cemetery (once the Lee estate). Congress, by a unanimous vote in 1925, made it a memorial to the confederate commander. Currently...

The Times Next Apology?

Mon, 7 Aug 2017 14:01:53 EST

Could the New York Times next apology be tendered to the Wall Street Journal? If that sounds unlikely, feature the latest news from the newspaper wars. It seems that ten years after the Wall Street Journal was acquired by Rupert Murdoch, the Journal dwarfs the Times in its ranking for trustworthiness. A new study finds the Journal's trustworthiness is ahead of any other American newspaper and ahead of the Times by a what passes in polling for a kiloparsec.What makes this so delicious is that...

The Russia Sanctions

Tue, 1 Aug 2017 19:53:27 EST

We were sorry to read that President Trump is going to sign "very soon" the bill that would limit his room to maneuver in respect of the Russia sanctions. The prediction he'll sign soon is from Vice President Pence. It's not that we're dovish on Russia. In the newsroom of the Sun, though, the latest Russia sanctions bill is known as the "Presidential Power Abatement Act of 2017." The better course for Mr. Trump would be to veto the measure and issue a call for consistency on the part of the...

Scaramucci's Swearing

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 17:51:08 EST

With all the indignation in the press over the language Anthony Scaramucci used in his rant to Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker one might imagine that it's the first time anyone has heard this kind of talk from a White House aide who reports directly to the president. Hence we embed above the Youtube video above President Obama's roast of his aide Rahm Emanuel, who we gather makes the Mooch sound like Beatrix Potter.

An Indict Trump Strategy?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 17:12:24 EST

It looks like the emerging strategy of the special prosecutor heading the Russia probe could well be to indict President Trump while he's in office, rather than refer him to the House for impeachment. The prosecutor, Robert Mueller, hasn't said anything like that. With the pattern of news stories about Mr. Mueller's investigation and the president's own statements, though, it doesn't take a Sherlock Holmes to speculate that the game, unconstitutional though it may be, is afoot.The latest news...

The Trust Question

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 08:46:59 EST

The New York Times is in a swivet over the fact that President Trump spoke to President Putin without an American translator. This apparently happened during a dinner of the G20, where the president went to say hello to the First Lady, who was seated next to Mr. Putin, with whom Mr. Trump "initiated the conversation" when "only Mr. Putin's interpreter was on hand." This means, the Gray Lady frets, that Russia "could assert that Mr. Trump agreed to something or said something that he did not...

Sheldon Silver's Limbo

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 07:39:31 EST

The first thing we thought of when the riders of the 2nd United States appeals circuit vacated the corruption conviction of Sheldon Silver is Raymond Donovan's famous question: "Which office do I go to get my reputation back?" He was President Reagan's labor secretary, who'd been driven from office by fraud charges only to be acquitted. In the event, Donovan went back to his successful construction business for another generation. Good for him.The outlook is unlikely to be so promising for the...

The Chaldean Conundrum

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 08:11:09 EST

Who is the author of crisis over the Trump administration's decision to send the Chaldean Christians back to Iraq? We ask because of the order yesterday from a federal judge at Michigan to halt, at least temporarily, the deportation to Iraq of 200 such Christians. The Chaldean Christians, as the American Civil Liberties Union puts it in a filing in the case, are "widely recognized as targets of brutal persecution in Iraq." Good for the ACLU.Then again, too, it was just the other month that the...

The Senate's Priority

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 17:49:18 EST

Senator McConnell's decision to post-pone the recess of the upper chamber until the third week of August certainly strikes us as a smart move, what with all that's going on and isn't going on in Washington. It suggests that the Senate wants to keep its eye on the ball amid the mishegas over Russia and the president's son. It's promising that the president didn't have to force the Senate's hand.We had called for Mr. Trump to do just that as far back as June 21, when we cited President...

Europe in the Open

Sun, 9 Jul 2017 17:31:22 EST

One positive development out of the Summit at Hamburg (or what is left of the Hanseatic hotspot after all the rioting) is that European resentment of America is now out in the open. This is well marked in the Sunday New York Times in a dispatch by Steven Erlanger, who reports that the Europeans have "stopped trying to paper over their differences with President Trump and the United States."A lot is going to be written about this in the coming weeks, no doubt, but one of the points to mark is...

An Anthem in Miami

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 17:15:23 EST

President Trump's speech in Miami this afternoon will go down as one of the remarkable moments of his presidency. He and a man with a violin retrieved the cause of Free Cuba that had been abandoned by President Obama in a deal with the Castro regime. . .
