Why Joe Biden must listen to Israel and Saudi Arabia
Israel and Saudi Arabia have congratulated Joe Biden on his presidential election victory. Skeptical of both governments, Biden nevertheless has good reason to listen attentively to each.
The first point here is that Biden must learn from the Obama administration's mistakes. Whatever one thinks of the 2015 decision to join the Iran nuclear accord, it's clear that Ben Rhodes, Susan Rice, and John Kerry badly miscalculated the full effects of that agreement.

Will Georgia Halt the Radicals’ Revolution?
President Donald Trump, given all he has endured for five years from those piously pleading now for a “time of healing,” cannot be faulted for his defiant resolve to unearth any and all high crimes or misdemeanors committed in the counting of ballots in the election of Tuesday last. Trump owes his people this, and he owes the establishment nothing.
“In victory, magnanimity… in defeat, defiance.”
That counsel about human conflict comes from Winston Churchill.

Biden’s COVID Co-Chair: The Right Hates Him Already, and That’s Good.
As FDA chief in the 1990s, David Kessler made dramatic changes for the better—nutrition labels, tobacco regulation. Yep, the right already hates him.

Kessler earned his reputation as David going after Goliath when he took on Big Tobacco in the 1990s and turned the FDA into such an aggressive watchdog on public health that critics derided him as a “nanny state food Nazi” for championing standardized nutrition labels on food.
He now emerges as a lead health official at a time of widespread public skepticism about the pandemic and strong resistance to government efforts to impose social distancing and mask wearing. Getting the virus under control is Biden’s top priority, but in places with the highest number of new cases per capita, the overwhelming majority of people voted for President Trump, presumably buying into his rhetoric about having “turned the corner” on the virus.

Another autopsy? Time for both parties to examine themselves
Call me skeptical, but something doesn’t make sense about President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the election to Joe Biden by citing unsupported charges of vote fraud.
For one thing, he’d have a stronger case if he didn’t have a long record of raising allegations without evidence, beginning with his doubts about former President Barack Obama’s well-documented American birth certificate.
For another, what kind of vast liberal conspiracy would let Democrats win the White House while taking a thoroughly unexpected shellacking down the same ballot? Read More
