The old Fox News is gone
The Week, by Daniel McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 5/19/2017 10:03:40 PM

Even before Roger Ailes died, the House That Ailes Built was falling into ruin. It was an American twist on a tale familiar to readers of Evelyn Waugh — how the wreck of a great estate parallels the downfall of the man who tried to rebuild it. Except Ailes did not rebuild, he created. Fox News was his brainchild, a glimmer in his eye as far back as the days when he was a media consultant to Richard Nixon. With Fox News, Ailes beat Ted Turner and CNN. He beat MSNBC and its corporate overlords, which at one time included

The Rubicon Is Crossed in North Korea
National Review, by Charles Krauthammer    Original Article

Across 25 years and five administrations, we have kicked the North Korean can down the road. We are now out of road. On July 4, North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile apparently capable of hitting the United States. As yet, only Alaska. Soon, every American city. Moreover, Pyongyang claims to have already fitted miniaturized nuclear warheads on intermediate-range missiles. Soon, on ICBMs. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s initial reaction to this game changer was not encouraging. “Global action is required to stop a global threat,” he declared. This, in diplo-speak, is a cry for (multilateral) help. Alas, there

Yesterday, Donald Trump Struck a Righteous

Before I address the text of Donald Trump’s speech yesterday in Poland, it’s worth pulling up two quotes from our two previous presidents. These quotes, I think, encapsulate the difference between the ideas Trump articulated yesterday and the core ideas of many of his liberal critics. First, let’s go with Barack Obama, in a speech to the British Parliament on May 25, 2011: For both of our nations, living up to the ideals enshrined in [our] founding documents has always been a work in progress. The path has never been perfect. But through the struggles of slaves and immigrants, women

Of all of his many remarkable tweets, President Trump’s infamous one from last Thursday mocking Mika Brzezinski now has the distinction of being the most viewed and covered. Much of the coverage has been decidedly negative and, as one would expect, most of those offended are either Democrats, establishment Republicans, or media figures. But this weekend Alan West weighed in against President Trump. As you probably know, Lieutenant Colonel West served in the House of Representatives as a Republican from Florida. And he’s certainly no “flailing old woman of the nominal right.” Before his time in Congress, he saw combat

President Trump´s speech yesterday in Warsaw was better than inspiring. It was calculating and subtle, and sent strong messages to both our friends and adversaries. The crowd of cavilers who abhor Trump as an ignoramus should hang their heads in shame. The president said: We are confronted by another oppressive ideology -- one that seeks to export terrorism and extremism all around the globe. America and Europe have suffered one terror attack after another. We’re going to get it to stop ... While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be

SEATTLE - A flight attendant broke a wine bottle over the head of a man who lunged for an exit door and fought with other passengers during a Delta Air Lines flight from Seattle to Beijing, but it didn´t faze him, an FBI agent wrote in charging papers filed Friday. Joseph Daniel Hudek IV, 23, of Tampa, Florida, appeared in U.S. District Court, wearing a beige jail uniform and sporting a scrape or bruise below his right eye. He was arrested Thursday night after causing the disturbance that forced the plane to return to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, authorities said. Hudek

On Friday, President Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Secretary Sergey Lavrov. The meeting, which was supposed to last just 35 minutes, instead lasted some two hours. The men obviously had good chemistry; Putin joked about the media as he sat beside Trump afterward. But two different narratives have emerged in the wake of the meeting. According to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Trump pushed the Russians on election interference, as well as aggression in Ukraine and Syria; Putin denied election interference. According to Tillerson, “The two leaders agreed this

Poland´s President Andrzej Duda ripped "fake news" reports that his wife snubbed President Trump for a handshake during Trump´s visit to Poland on Thursday. In a tweet, Duda confirmed that both he and his wife shook hands with the president, and urged his followers to "fight fake news" together.

The U.S. government is attempting to seize millions of dollars tied to North Korea from eight major banks after the rogue dictatorship announced on July 4 that it had developed a missile capable of reaching the United States. Multiple news outlets reported Thursday that the Justice Department has accused the banks of processing more than $700 million in "prohibited" transactions since 2009. The banks included in the court filings are Bank of America Corp., Bank of New York Mellon Corp., Citigroup Inc., Deutsche Bank AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Standard Chartered Plc and Wells Fargo & Co.

The Group of 20 summit that starts in Hamburg on Thursday is the most anticipated—and potentially turbulent—meeting of global leaders in years. An unpredictable U.S. president with a protectionist bent, a Russian leader subject to international sanctions and a Chinese president looking to assert a greater global role are just a few of the factors that might stoke tensions. Sparks could really ?y over the policy agenda of free trade, climate change and migration put forward by the German host.

President Trump’s Remarkable Warsaw Speech

President Trump delivered one of the most important speeches of his young presidency on Thursday. Billed as "Remarks to the people of Poland," the address was as clear a statement we´ve heard of Trump´s nation-state populism. This philosophy, which differs in emphasis and approach from that of other post-Cold War Republican presidents, is both enduring and undefined. Reaching as far back as Andrew Jackson, and carrying through, in different ways, William Jennings Bryan, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Spiro Agnew, Ronald Reagan, Ross Perot, Patrick Buchanan, James Webb, and Sarah Palin, the nation-state populist tradition has suffered from its lack of intellectuals,

John Sullivan, the new deputy secretary of state, is quickly winning over State Department employees by taking otherwise ordinary steps in what seem like extraordinary times. The 57-year-old has repeatedly stated his admiration for the foreign service, even as President Donald Trump has proposed gutting it. He talks to career officers — and says he wants to meet all of them, even as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson grows increasingly isolated from his staff. Sullivan has also pushed the boundaries of the Trump administration’s ethos by reaching out to Democrats as well as Republicans to help him prepare for his

Donald Trump has reportedly had trouble getting a hotel room for the upcoming G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. His team apparently waited too long to book accommodations for the President and his travelling staff and were told none of the major hotels had vacancies, Buzzfeed reported. The local newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt reported that the Four Seasons had to turn him away as they were full. In an ironic twist for the hotel chain owner, every luxury hotel in town seemed to be booked up. There do not appear to be any Trump-owned properties in the northern German city. Buzzfeed did some digging and

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts appeared to take a veiled jab at his new colleague Justice Neil Gorsuch during a conference in Pennsylvania this week, where he reiterated his longstanding aversion to solo opinions. The comments suggest a hint of tension between the chief and the junior justice. In remarks given at a judicial conference in Pennsylvania this week, Roberts reiterated his long-held view that the Court should speak with one voice wherever possible — that is to say, he supports a consensus-driven approach to opinion writing in which the justices strive for unanimity and avoid writing their own

He specifically praised Poland’s historic, but ultimately unsuccessful, resistance to Nazi occupation and its persistent efforts throughout the Cold War to undermine Soviet dominance here and throughout Europe.

Early Friday morning, Trump tweeted that everyone at the G-20 summit in Germany he is currently attending was "talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA." Trump was referring to the Democratic National Committee´s hacked computer server, which was not handed over to federal authorities offering cyber-security assistance, nor to those responsible for the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016

Earlier that day, she explained, she had been browsing at the White House Black Market, a popular women’s chain store, in Lynnfield, Mass.

Hamburg, Germany - For years the United States was the dominant force and set the agenda at the annual gathering of the leaders of the world’s largest economies. But on Friday, when President Trump met with 19 other leaders at the Group of 20 conference, he found the United States isolated on everything from trade to climate change, and faced with the prospect of the group’s issuing a statement on Saturday that lays bare how the United States stands alone. (Snip) Ms. Merkel also pointed out that most of the countries supported the Paris accord on climate change, while Mr. Trump has abandoned it.
