The amazing resurrection of Mitt Romney

theweek.com — When Mitt Romney was trounced by President Obama in the 2012 election, it seemed as if the former governor of Massachusetts was a political corpse. Romney "appears well on the way to disappearing," wrote The Washington Post in a merciless campaign autopsy, "with a not-so-gentle shove from his own party."

How America's broken immigration system is failing the military

theweek.com — America's hopelessly gridlocked immigration system is undermining more than our national economy - it's also knee-capping our national security. The reason behind these twin failures is the same: the Rushmore-sized obstacles our immigration system creates in the recruitment of qualified foreigners.

Why the West should let Russia have eastern Ukraine

theweek.com — Putin's Russia seems to have finally launched its bona fide invasion of Ukraine. And many righteously indignant American lawmakers will surely be eager to try to stop Russia (not at any cost), or at least punish it for doing something reprehensible.

theweek.com — Germany and the U.S. are at loggerheads over Russia's incursions into Ukraine, with America frustrated that Germany isn't doing more to punish Russian aggression.

Toronto has to throw out its anti-littering campaign, after misusing major brand names

theweek.com — The city of Toronto has now had to scrap an official series of anti-littering posters, unveiled just recently in mid-August, due to a fundamental blunder in their basic concept. The ads showed pieces of litter from major brand name products, with one piece partially covering another, so that their names formed new derogatory words about the people supposedly littering them.
