Bookworm Beat 12/20/18 — the border wall edition

I went overboard in this Bookworm Beat, covering the border wall, Syria, Antisemitism, Europe’s fall, science, Michelle and Melania, media bias, and much more. Good walls make good neighbors. Trump did it — he got the House to include $5 billion in the budget bill to build the border wall. [Read More]

Bureaucrats seeking job security can be incredibly dangerous

There are few things more dangerous than a collection of bureaucrats willing to stop at nothing to keep the bureaucracy alive for their own benefit. We’ve seen that here in America. Obama’s bureaucrats, knowing that the good times roll better for bureaucrats under Democratic presidents than under Republican ones, have [Read More]
