Strassel, FOX News/The Wall Street Journal:* *Did the FBI place a mole inside the 2016 Trump campaign?* The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign.

Could America Pull Troops Out of South Korea If It Wanted?

Ramon Marks at The National Interest - 12 hours ago
*Ramon Marks* *Security, Asia* The implications could be catastrophic. Today the world waits to see whether toughened sanctions, hard nose diplomacy, and even exchanges of nuclear ‘red button’ threats have worked to persuade Kim Jong-Un to give up his nuclear arsenal. At the very least, these Administration initiatives appear to have played a major role in prompting what will be a remarkable summit conference between Kim Jong-Un and President Trump. Precedent exists. Some countries have given up nuclear weapons development programs voluntarily. South Africa and Brazil did so,... more »

The “Hero Cult” of Epicurus

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 13 hours ago
Marble bust of EpicurusMartha C. Nussbaum, in *The Therapy of Desire: Theory and Practice in Hellenistic Ethics*, is full of praise for Epicurus’s ethical teachings. Her explanation makes it seem that Epicureanism is more conducive for achieving the Greek ideal of *eudaimonia* than the ethical teachings of Aristotle. But in the book’s Chapter 4, “Epicurean Surgery: Argument and Empty Desire,” she gives a glimpse of the “hero cult” that Epicurus had established. In Ancient Greece and during the Roman era, Epicurus was venerated as the savior of mankind by his disciples. Here’s an ex... more »

The practice of shaking down victims able to pay has become entrenched and allowed diversion to political friends. Outrageous of course and has now largely ended for regulatory abuse. It is one more terrible idea that looks good the first time around but soon stinks as the threshold quickly drops.

First step though is the complete decriminalization of the drug trade in order to eliminate funding. Most other forms of criminalit... more »
