NIMBYs, Hostages, and the European Wind Wars

Nobody wants a wind turbine in his back yard.

The Art of “Gray-Hull Diplomacy”

How should an American president use the military in an intimidating, persuasive manner, to induce Iran to give up her nuclear-weapons purpose? Very little has been discussed on this topic in the forums of punditry; virtually all treatments focus on the feasibility or proper method of a military attack campaign. Is there an “intimidation option,” short of a shooting war? And if so, what would it look like?

Did Iran’s Warships Actually Visit Syria This Week?

Did Iran's warships actually visit Syria this past week as was widely reported, or did was that Iranian disinformation?

Israel, Iran, Hamas, and Why it’s Not 2014 Anymore

Hamas' purpose was to attack the unity of the de facto Middle East coalition – a coalition against radical Iran – forming through the Abraham Accords.  The premise of the attack was that framing the conflict as a response to an outrage against Al Aqsa, and forcing Israel to strike back hard, would peel away the Arab partners to the Abraham Accords.

The Perils of Barack

J.E. Dyer: Implications of the New ‘Tax-Mandate’ in Obamacare

This is what a tax now looks like? This is an open invitation to “tax” via whatever mandate sounds good to you. What sort of unequal-before-the-law mandate would not fit this definition of a tax? Congress can do anything it wants, by the logic of this decision, with the judicial precedent set that levying mandates equals using the power to tax.

The Maersk Tigris Game Change

Iran stands unopposed by the “international community” and is racing to assert regional dominance.

Downhill Slide: Posturing Over the ‘Plight of Gaza’ has Passed Peak Virtue-Signaling

It probably doesn’t feel this way to the people trying to explain why Israel has to defend herself, but over the past week, since Hamas’ border fence “protests” from Gaza cranked up, there has been a distinctly tinny, perfunctory sound to the adverse media coverage and political shouting.

Eyes on the Ball, Folks: SCOTUS has Ruled Congress Can Make Us Buy Stuff

Understand this: it doesn’t matter if ObamaCare is repealed next year. Repeat as necessary until understood. The SCOTUS ruling is on the books. Congress can make you buy anything, as long as it fines you if you don’t. The concept of constitutional limits on the power of government has been effectively removed from our guiding idea of law and jurisprudence.

Syria: US drones, Iranian warships

The only way to secure a positive outcome in Syria is to use US power, under US strategic direction, to do it. This has never necessarily meant military intervention, but it does necessarily mean acting with purpose and determination, rather than throwing random reconnaissance assets into the fray while handing the political problem over lock, stock, and barrel to the Arab League and the UN.

Game change: Russia Can Now Warn Israel Against IAF Operations Over Syria

Israel has never faced the reality of Russia potentially vetoing its air defense decisions

Why are We Surprised that Iran is Exporting Weapons to Iraq?

The ISIS guerrillas are a problem for Iran. It arose because of the Arab Spring and the Syrian civil war.

Short-circuit: Trump Hacks the ‘Deep State’

The long and short of the "Trump/Russia-election" line of attack is that the Obama Democrats can’t run it without implicating every unsightly thing the Obama administration did to set it up.

Defense Round Up: U.S. Showing Weakness Abroad

The U.S. is being made to look weak in Egypt, and is actually acting weak with allies and foes alike.

Double Standards on Facebook

Ms. Blum worked through the wickets Facebook set up for restoring her account to its good graces, but was unable to determine what, exactly, had violated its standards.

2021 and the Power and Scope of Revelation

The pretense of honoring the rule of law is already gone.  It was gone under Obama for years, but it has now emerged into the open as a change in the rules of engagement. 

Are the American voters idiots?

There has been a tremendous growth in vague, elliptical, and/or tendentious narration of what’s going on in the nation and the world. The people can be pardoned for being tired and confused.

In the last weeks of the talks the US excluded every other delegation from negotiations with Iran.

Congress’s Push Against anti-Semitism a Reminder of Strings that Come with Taxpayer $

Free speech doesn't mean the taxpayer-funded government never has an opinion on what it will/won’t subsidize. If that were the case, society would never have an option to refuse to pay for anything

‘9/10’ Media Mindset: Threat from Soleimani ‘Not Imminent’

In military planning terms, Soleimani was the operational center of gravity for Iran’s proxy campaign throughout the Middle East, from Iraq to Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen. That operational center of gravity just received a knockout blow.
