The CEO and the CIA

nationalreview.com — How Carly Fiorina managed and advised the 'poobahs' at Langley. One week after 9/11, Michael Hayden, the director of the National Security Agency, the electronic surveillance arm of the U.S. government, had a long list of problems. High on the list was the fact that the NSA needed a ton of new high-tech equipment, particularly servers, right away, to handle a vastly expanded, critically important workload.

If You Want to Change American Culture, Should You Be Running for President?

nationalreview.com — Over on the home page, Henry Payne reports from Dr. Ben Carson's campaign kickoff event, and summarizes Carson's message, "It's Not Politics or Economics, It's the Culture." Dr. Carson may very well be right. (Mike Huckabee, announcing today, has also emphasized the need for an American cultural and/or spiritual renewal to overcome our current plethora of problems, as has once and perhaps future candidate Rick Santorum.)

We Have Invented Jihadist Flypaper.

nationalreview.com — Is it just me, or have we just invented a form of Islamist/jihadist/ISIS flypaper? They wore body armor. They carried assault rifles. And one had declared loyalty to ISIS. A day after police killed two gunmen who tried to ambush a Garland, Texas, event featuring controversial cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed, details began to emerge about the shooters.

Rubio’s Smooth Dexterity About His Agenda’s Downsides

nationalreview.com — You can watch my interview with Marco Rubio here, or read our Joel Gehrke's write-up here. There's a lot to like about Rubio; he's the best communicator in the GOP. But his plans do have details that some folks on the Right might dislike.

Will Rick Snyder Run for President?

nationalreview.com — Is Michigan governor Rick Snyder really going to add his name to the crowded field of Republican presidential contenders? While the obstacles to a relatively late-starting bid are considerable, the governor and his staff are sticking to a "haven't ruled it out" line for now. The question is what that "maybe, maybe not" stance signifies.

The Clinton Family’s Proud Tradition of Shamelessly Lying

nationalreview.com — From the Thursday Morning Jolt: The Clinton Family's Proud Tradition of Shamelessly Lying Everybody has a particular figure in the news who drives them a little bonkers. You may recall that for some reason, media hosannas for Chelsea Clinton stick in my craw.

Potential Primary Challenger to Sen. Mike Lee Declines 2016 Bid

nationalreview.com — That didn't take long. Hours after Campaign Spot reported Sen. Mike Lee hired Romney's campaign manager Mike Rhoades and the opposition research group America Rising, one of his potential primary rivals decides he's not that interested in running after all: Alex Dunn, the Provo business executive being recruited by a top adviser to former presidential candidate Mitt Romney to run against Sen.

Mike Lee Hires America Rising to Fend Off Primary Challenger

nationalreview.com — One of the more interesting unresolved questions in the 2016 Senate races is whether Sen. Mike Lee, Utah Republican, will face a primary challenger.

Stealing Pringles in the Name of Justice.

nationalreview.com — Whenever this kind of unforgivable idiocy occurs, some chin-stroking media wise man assures us that rioting is an expression of anger from oppressed communities, a cry for justice from those who feel every other avenue of regress has been unfairly blocked, blah blah blah. It's all nonsense.

How Five Years in the Air Force Shaped Rick Perry

nationalreview.com — Every presidential candidate wants to assure the electorate that he has a cool head in a crisis. Former Texas governor Rick Perry - once a captain in the U.S. Air Force - will have a leg up on the competition when he tells voters what he did when one of his C-130's engines exploded in mid-flight.
