AEIHeaven help me, but I sort of love Elon Musk's new hyperloop idea. (Well, at least in theory…) The sci-fi buff and futurist in me just loves, loves, loves Elon Musk's idea of building an underground hyperloop between Washington and New York. Heck, I would love the idea even if the vacuum tube connected LA and San Francisco or Houston and Dallas or Chicago and St. Louis. Even Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Journalists and guests look over tubes following a propulsion open-air test at Hyperloop One in North Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S. May 11, 2016. REUTERS/Steve Marcus Now since I live in the Read More >>

In this AEI Events Podcast, leading experts join AEI's John R. Bolton and Desmond Lachman to discuss the challenges and opportunities of Brexit after the United Kingdom elections. Ambassador John R. Bolton, senior fellow at AEI, discusses the EU's “secular theology,” which argues the EU has brought peace and prosperity to Europe. David O'Sullivan, ambassador of the European Union to the United States, disagrees, asserting that the EU had allowed peaceful resolution of conflicts. He highlights that defining a post-Brexit relationship between the UK and the EU will take several years. https://media.blubrry.com/aeieventspod/p/content.blubrry.com/aeieventspod/Event_Brexit_After_The_United_Kingdom_Election_2017_07_18.mp3Podcast (aei-events-podcast): Download Adam Posen, president of the Peterson Institute, addresses Read More >>

The following is an excerpt from CNN's Fareed Zakaria's Global Briefing, featuring AEI research fellow Katherine Zimmerman. “President Trump has decided to end the CIA's covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad,” the Washington Post reports. Team Trump has made a mistake. Katherine Zimmerman, a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and author of a new report, “America's Real Enemy: The Salafi-Jihadi Movement,” emails Global Briefing that the decision is a mistake. “President Trump's decision to end aid to moderate rebels sells out the very Syrians the United States should be supporting. They alone Read More >>

AEIDoes lack of tech-driven unemployment mean US innovation is moribund? “Is the best the US economy can do?” is perhaps the most pressing economic question there is. (Right along with it: “How do we create faster, sustained growth whose benefits are more widely shared?”) So it is a real treat to read an insightful debate between two key thinkers on this issue, such as the one presented by Knowledge@Wharton between Northwestern University economists Robert Gordon and Joel Mokyr. One sees stagnation, the other acceleration. The techno-pessimist vs. the techo-optimist. Both give great summations of their positions. Gordon thinks the computer revolution has Read More >>

AEIIs the American economy being hurt by monopolistic Corporate America? If we want more economic growth, we'll need more productivity growth — and the latter would sure benefit from more business investment. (And more business investment might diffuse innovation more broadly through the economy.) That's the obvious message from the above chart, produced last year by the Obama White House. Now given that so-so investment is a problem across advanced economies, explanations should be global, at least in part. So one explanation is that weak investment is connected to the economic hangover from the Great Recession. But the US business sector might Read More >>

This June, after a decade in office, Harvard University president Drew Faust announced that she'll be resigning next year. Faust's decision comes at a defining moment for higher education. Campus riots, speech codes and a constant stream of efforts to disinvite or stifle discordant voices make it seem that many American universities have abandoned their commitment to robust intellectual diversity. It wasn't always thus. Decades ago, elite universities were helmed by leaders who reflected a much broader ideological spectrum. That was at a time when campuses themselves were more intellectually heterodox. But today, liberal college faculty outnumber their conservative counterparts five Read More >>

After decades of diplomacy in Korea, it is clear there is no deal to strike. Kim Jong Un wants to reunify the Korean Peninsula under his rule and eject America from the region. North Korea's actions since the first nuclear crisis, more than two decades ago, show this is not mere talk. The regime has used every agreement for 20 years to build more weapons and extort more money. Mr. Kim is close to having a nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile, threatening the U.S. and its allies. The only solution is to remove him. But how? A war would be extremely costly.

Politically fueled cop hatred has taken another victim. Convicted felon Alexander Bonds, who had already assaulted an officer with brass knuckles, wrote on Facebook last September, “Police is f—-ts, and this ain't no gimmick. That's where your taxpayer money be going, to pay off your own people being murdered. N—-s ain't taking it no more,... Read More >>

One of the painful realities of our times is how long a political lie can survive, even after having been disproved years ago, or even generations ago. A classic example is the phrase "tax cuts for the rich," which is loudly proclaimed by opponents, whenever there is a proposal to reduce... Read More >>

Extract from Secure Freedom Radio, 20 March 2017: I want to take a few minutes for what is known in government as a “point of personal privilege.” It's what you do when someone attacks you and you need to set the record straight. In my case, reporters for prominent national publications have gone after me as a way of attacking Donald Trump and his senior subordinates. Matthew Rosenberg of the New York Times, Eli Lake of Bloomberg, Greg Jaffe of the Washington Post and most recently Peter Beinart of the Atlantic have largely ignored the substance of lengthy interviews I have given Read More >>

arraignment
There are a number of situations in which several court appearances are expected before the real trial commences. Such appearances are referred to as interim or pre-trial hearings. Interim hearings serve a number of purposes depending on the case. Some important purposes of the interim hearings are: • An interim hearing may be requested by the prosecutor to let the court know that they are adequately prepared to take the case to trial. • Requesting the court for an adjournment. The main reason for this is to give the accused party enough time to get a suitable lawyer or to get enough Read More >>

The year 2016 was a good one for books by men named Yuval. Over the past year, I read two, and both were excellent. The first Yuval is Yuval Levin, justifiably well known to NR readers. His Fractured Republic deserves the accolades it has been receiving. It is a cogent and well-reasoned look at how we have come to our present situation of bitter partisanship and broken politics, but it also makes a compelling case for a realistic path forward. He suggests a form of “subsidiarity,” i.e., getting away from solutions at the federal level and finding more answers locally. Read More >>

Chicago's yearlong shooting rampage picked up steam over Christmas weekend, leaving 61 people shot, 11 fatally. Seven were killed on Christmas Day alone, more than on the three previous Christmases combined, according to the Chicago Tribune. Gangbangers targeted each other's holiday gatherings as if in deliberate mockery of the season. Two young girls were shot... Read More >>

If you ever get arrested and / or charged with a crime, you will be served with a document from the courts. Examples of such documents include an appearance notice, summons, promise to appear, and recognizance. Whichever document you get, it will spell out important court specifics including: • The charge against you • What kind of offense it is • The date and time for your first appearance • Where to make the first appearance Disclosure The crown counsels, otherwise called the prosecutors, are required to make all evidence against you available for your interrogation before the trial commences. The legal term used for this Read More >>
