Biden should worry about angering Eric Adams
Look at the Carter-Koch feud

May 19, 2023  •  New York Post

President Joe Biden and Mayor Eric Adams' growing feud reflects significant differences in the political realities facing them.

As president, Biden has to manage the increasingly progressive left wing of the Democratic Party — its calls for decriminalization and decarceration, and limiting enforcement of illegal US border crossings.

As mayor, Adams is responsible for preserving order on the streets, and therefore must have tools for dealing with criminal behavior.

He must also find ways to limit the costly inflow of illegal migrants into New York.

Evidence of the feud is manifesting from both sides: Adams is now blasting Biden policies.

review of Crash Landing

May 7, 2023  •  The Washington Free Beacon

Liz Hoffman's Crash Landing is a look at how major CEOs dealt with the economic tumult of 2020 created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Every CEO, indeed every American, was tested in this period. As leaders, the CEOs needed to make quick, often hard, decisions about how to proceed and what to do for themselves, for their companies, and for the country as a whole.

White House Plumbers is a busted flush

Biden and the veto power

March 9, 2023  •  The Washington Examiner

Joe Biden is expected, likely within the week, to issue the first veto of his presidency more than two years into the start of his administration. His target is the so-called ESG bill, a resolution passed by Congress and overturning a Labor Department rule that allowed asset managers to prioritize environmental, social, and corporate governance factors over the strict financial results in retiree accounts when making investments. Former Deputy Secretary of Labor Pat Pizzella, who worked on this issue in the Trump administration, said ESG investing is "the icing on the cake of woke capitalism."

review of The Peacemaker: Ronald Reagan, the Cold War, and the World on the Brink

March 2, 2023  •  City Journal

Ronald Reagan may have been the last president to enter office with both a foreign policy vision and a strategy for getting the job done. Reagan's vision was vindicated: his presidency ended successfully, with Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms leading to the dissolution of the Soviet Union a few years later, during the presidency of Reagan's successor, George H. W. Bush.

Since Reagan, our presidents have been less focused. Some have lacked a strategy; others, especially George W. Bush, changed theirs because of external events. But none have entered office with a true foreign policy vision.
