This Friday I found myself in the gardens of the Musee Rodin, ruminating with "The Thinker" on how to distill from Germany's near-recession some worthwhile copy. It was near closing time, and 30 minutes had brought nothing, so I figured I'd resign myself to tapping out some filler about the 'national emergency' at a local bistro. Besides, it was drizzling. About to about face, a throat cleared behind me. "Pardon, but eez that you, Monsieur Silesia?" I turned. Set against the dull gr...

Two split-screen events in one day last week displayed new global alliances ready to clash, Cold War-style. In Poland, America tried to push Mideast peace. At the same time, a gang of rogues united in New York to support Venezuela's crumbling Marxist dictatorship. The more consequential event was the two-day summit, organized by Secretary of State Pompeo, that drew to Warsaw top Mideast leaders. Critics in Europe and the media who derided the summit as nothing but an anti-Iran yawner overlooke...

In the constitutional confrontation over President Trump's plan to use emergency powers to build a wall on our southern border, we're keeping an eye out for the name of Jagdish Rai Chadha. He was the plaintiff in the case in which the Supreme Court read Congress the riot act for trying to interfere with a president's emergency powers. The case echoes through the years. At the moment, the President is being opposed by Speaker Pelosi, Senator Schumer, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, and every ot...

The New York Sun is happy to report that our Web site is back in operation, after being down for about 24 hours due to what our hosting service referred to as an "unexpected event related to storage controllers." This kind of thing was never a problem when our presses were powered by horses trudging around on a circular track. Please know that the editor spent this down time berating the internet technology consultant only to discover that the consultant was entirely innocent and the probl...

It's amazing, to us at least, that so little comment is being issued in respect of the Warsaw meeting on the Middle East. What comment there has been out of Europe has mainly related to the Munich conference, where America was subjected the usual condescension from France and Germany capped off by a nauseating speech by Vice President Biden saying America had become an "embarrassment." What a contrast with the parley in Warsaw. Ministers from all sorts of countries came together in...

Which side are you on? That's the question in what the New York Post calls the "progressive civil war" that has erupted in New York. It's over Amazon's decision to pull out of its deal to move a headquarters to America's largest and most dynamic city. It could end up as a watershed moment in the political realignment in the city and state of New York, and none too soon. So are you rooting for the high-spirited socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Even before taking office, she was the...

What a Valentine's Day in Parliament. One would think Britons have fallen out of love with liberty. This after the Government lost another vote it's tenth, according to BBC bean-counters on its Brexit agenda. Yet it's no time to lose heart for those who stand with Britain's desperate, heroic dash for independence from Europe. The Government defeat came on a more-or-less status quo motion: To stand by the Withdrawal Agreement, during ongoing lobbying efforts with Brussels to alter the...

President Trump's decision to declare an emergency so as to be able to build a wall on the Mexican border puts him in a zone of twilight. That's not a phrase from Rod Serling. It's from the pen of Justice Robert Jackson of the Supreme Court, concurring in one of the most memorable opinions every to flutter from the high bench. It defined when a president's powers were at a peak or nadir.

Maybe Hollywood will make a movie of the Trump administration called "Eight Days in May." That's the period in May 2017 between when President Trump fired the director of the FBI, James Comey, and Robert Mueller was named special prosecutor. Those days were, a new report says, when the Justice Department huddled on whether the new President could be removed under the 25th amendment.

Is the United States Federal Reserve, central bank to the greatest economy in the history of the world, insolvent? Ayup, technically it is, writes James Grant in the latest number of his famed newsletter, Grant's Interest Rate Observer. It's a wonderful read. Let's hope that someone manages to get a copy of it to President Trump before a Democratic candidate gets in ahead of him on this issue. Mr. Grant, who holds an honorary doctorate in acerbic studies, has pressed this point in an o...
