Trump victory: A blow to the non-elite elite

From hacked email troves we received a glimpse of the bankrupt values of Washington journalists, lawyers, politicians, lobbyists and wealthy donors. Despite their brand-name Ivy League degrees and 1 percenter resumes, dozens of the highly paid grandees who run our country and shape our news appear petty and spiteful – and clueless about the America that exists beyond their Beltway habitat.

War clouds are gathering; a hard rain is going to fall

War does not sleep. Wars often seem to come out of nowhere, as unlikely events ignite long-simmering disputes into global conflagrations. The instigators often are weaker attackers who foolishly assume that more powerful nations wish peace at any cost, and so will not react to opportunistic aggression. Unfortunately, our late-summer calm of 2016 has masked a lot of festering tensions that are now coming to a head – largely due to disengagement by a supposedly tired United States.

Trump up, Hillary down, Obama out

This weird election is coming down to just two factors. One, the outcome is largely up to Donald Trump — can he stop self-destructing and assure voters that he is “presidential”? Two, will Hillary Clinton’s scandals, which now have a life of their own, ever cease?

How the establishment protects insider Hillary Clinton

A group of 50 conservative foreign policy elites denounced Donald Trump in an open letter. Is there a group of past Democratic wise men and women who can commensurately “police their own” and so warn us about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton? It won’t happen because Clinton is a fixture of the foreign policy establishment.

Hillary embraces ‘neoliberal’ Republicans fleeing Trump

Since the 1980s, the neoconservatives have made up the elite of the GOP – despite their unease with the conservative orthodoxy of border enforcement, fierce resistance to gun control and opposition to abortion. Now, a few neoconservatives are reinventing themselves again and returning to the Democrats to support Hillary Clinton. We could call them “neoliberals.”

When war went worldwide 75 years ago

In a sane world, it would be utter folly for ISIS to try to repeat a 9/11-like terrorist attack. It makes little sense for Russia to annex the Baltic states in the manner of the Crimea. It would be stupid for China to prompt a sea or air fight with Japan or Taiwan. Nonetheless, all these powers may convince themselves the perceived benefits outweigh the costs.
