With apologies to Joss Whedon: Into every generation a truly moronic trade policy is born: one completely counterproductive idea in all of America, a chosen one.

Jun 14 2017 - Sanctions

Washington is a town lousy with partisanship. At this point, when bipartisan action is taken, it is worth noticing. As my Post colleague Karoun Demrijian reported two days ago, there has been a rare bipartisan move in Congress to push for strengthening sanctions against Russia: Senators have struck a deal to put a comprehensive Russia sanctions [].feedback

Jun 13 2017

Back in January, I weighed the possibility of there being a modern equivalent to Walter Lippmann, a columnist and public intellectual who “spent most of his career ingratiating himself with presidents whom he then tried to sway.” The hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts was pretty dubious about there being a modern Lippmann — not [].feedback

Jun 12 2017

Full disclosure: the hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts was completely distracted by infrastructure week. Every day last week, I could not stop thinking about making Americas roads, railways, airports, seaports, bus stations, hovercraft, hoverboards and WiFi access great again. Absolutely no other news event of the past week could hold the attention that the White [].feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

The hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts needs a breather from reading and writing about President Trump. Seriously, its exhausting. Just as I started to type these words, two bombshell stories about Trump came out. I simply do not have the energy to address them. There has to be something else worth reading. And there are, [].feedback

Jun 06 2017 - NATO

One of the odder aspects of that very bad, no good, horrible McMaster and Cohn op-ed of last week was their claim that President Trump had affirmed Article 5 of NATO — “an attack against one ally is considered as an attack against all allies” — when he very clearly had not. Yesterday, Politicos Susan Glasser [].feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Trump Presidency

It will not shock readers that the hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts is not the biggest fan of the Trump administrations foreign policy stylings. The secretary of states performance has been embarrassing. An op-ed by H.R. McMaster and Gary Cohn desperately trying to spin Trumps overseas trip as a success was worse. The presidents decision [].feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

It is worth remembering that after Donald Trump won the election last November, there was reason for Americas foreign policy community to engage in some introspection. After all, petition after petition of national security and foreign policy professionals had been issued warning that Trump would be a foreign policy disaster. As I wrote in The [].feedback

May 31 2017 - Trump-Merkel

What's truly impressive about [State's] silence is the apparent lack of comprehension by Trump's foreign policy team about why Merkel would have fired these shots. Trump's ignorant rhetoric and brash demeanor virtually guarantee that elected leaders in large advanced industrialized democracies will benefit from resisting Trump.feedback

May 30 2017 - Trump Presidency

Unfortunately, my prediction from last week has come true, and the European leg of President Trumps first overseas trip did not go well at all: Germanys foreign minister launched a scathing criticism of Donald Trump on Monday, claiming the US Presidents actions have weakened the West and accusing the US government of standing against the [].feedback

May 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

It has been more than 36 hours since President Trump fired FBI Director James B. Comey, and the tick-tock, leaks and diatribes about it have not abated. The hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts has devoured all of them, and has reached a pretty simple conclusion: Donald Trump does not understand how the federal government works. [].feedback

May 09 2017

Every White House has its management problems, and this one is no different. Or is it?feedback

May 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

I have noticed a disturbing trend in my social media discussions over the past hundred days or so: some of my colleagues refer to the current stewards of the executive branch as the Trump regime rather than the Trump administration. I honestly wonder if this is fair. Let me explain. Layman might think of state [].feedback

Apr 20 2017

The hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts is getting old. This is much preferred to the alternative, of course, but it comes with certain side effects. Like getting grouchy when reading articles suggesting something is new when is not all that new. Theyre all legit celebrities now. Nothing like it before. @tarapalmeri + me on the [].feedback

Apr 19 2017

Is there a correlation between good foreign policy and good dating techniques?feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Syria conflict

Tis the season for Nikki Haley profiles. The Syria strikes have highlighted the outsized role of President Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations. A week ago Politico’s Eliana Johnson wrote that, “with Rex Tillerson conducting his job almost entirely out of public view, Haley has improbably eclipsed the secretary of state as the country’s leading [].feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Supreme Court

There’s a lot of talk about the erosion of political norms going around in 2017. Today might be the day that the GOP majority ends the Senate filibuster to ensure the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This is the inevitable endpoint to the “parliamentary arms race” caused by increased polarization. Of course, [].feedback

Apr 06 2017

How the private sector is taking over policymaking.feedback

Apr 05 2017

One of the things that life in the Trump administration makes you appreciate is the things you took for granted in the pre-Trump era.

Mar 29 2017 - Twitter

Last month I proffered some super-friendly advice for White House official Sebastian Gorka, PhD. This had a few repercussions: Gorka followed my advice and removed the letters PhD. from his Twitter bio! Unfortunately, he appears to have replaced them with DrG, which I believe is Hungarian for PhD. Still, baby steps! In a totally alpha-male [].feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Trump administration

There are lots of positive economic data that is positive about the Trump administration. How long it stays positive is another question entirely.feedback

Mar 27 2017

President Trumps first big effort to implement his agenda through Congress failed before it got to the floor of the House. Theres a ton of political blame to go around for this, but to be honest Spoiler Alerts doesnt care about the only form of exercise indigenous to Washington. No, the hard-working staff of Spoiler [].feedback

Mar 22 2017

Now I see why the secretary of state speaking with the media is a problem.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Trump administration

The Trump administration likes to talk a lot about improving Americas trade balance. So the hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts thought it might be useful to highlight a key sector of the American economy that is running an ever-increasing trade surplus: education, primarily higher education. When an overseas student studies at an American university, [].feedback

Mar 20 2017 - National Security Council

If there has been a narrative about the Trump administrations foreign policy, it has been the idea that the primary cleavage is between the populists and the grown-ups. The populists consist of Trump, Stephen K. Bannon, Peter Navarro and Bannons minions in the White House. The grown-ups are Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, national security adviser [].feedback

Mar 15 2017

Let's explore a few op-eds arguing that Trump is being tamed by the system and not vice versa.feedback

Mar 14 2017

Tom Wright has a very smart Politico essay on the Jekyll-and-Hyde nature of Trumps foreign policy to date. Wrights explanation for why Trump hasnt implemented much of his “America First” foreign policy is an intriguing one, he lacks the necessary intellectual firepower: Trump’s worldview is in a tiny minority within his own administration. His national security [].feedback

Mar 13 2017

It's now very easy to highlight the costs of social media. Spoiler Alerts would like to point out the benefits as well.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - NAFTA

There is no economic reason for the Trump administration's hostility to trade agreements. There are a few political reasons, however.feedback

Mar 07 2017

While reading an article “America and the Liberal International Order” in a new journal, I came across a brief but sharp denunciation of Trumps presidency to date: Pointless apologies, gratuitous insults to allies and friends, failure to honor commitments, transparent groveling to enemies — these rub salt in the open wound of contempt. Perhaps the [].feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Department of Homeland Security

On Monday, the Trump administration will double down on its counterproductive Make America Less Safe executive order on immigration from certain Muslim-majority countries. This is merely the latest effort by the Trump White House to let the Customs and Border Protection (CPB), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and every other Department Homeland Security-affiliated agency do [].feedback
