The GOP’s new path to the future

A new approach to tech policy is taking root in the GOP, and it’s not what you might expect from the party of Alan Greenspan and Friedrich Hayek. Led by a handful of ambitious, policy-minded senators, a group of conservatives is embracing the idea of subsidizing the tech industry and advanced manufacturing — with an eye toward building a competitive edge over China, and revitalizing the hollowed-out industrial centers that have given the party its Trump-era populist verve.

Kentucky Braces for a Raucous GOP Primary to Try to Unseat Democratic Governor

In deep-red Kentucky, incumbent Gov. Andy Beshear is a striking anomaly. He's a Democrat elected in a state that sends conservatives like Sens. Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell to Congress, which voted for Donald Trump in 2020 by more than 25 points. Kentucky has only one Democrat in its incoming congressional delegation. It’s not the sort of place Democrats eye for big wins; Beshear only won in 2019 by about 5,000 votes.

Marjorie Taylor Greene's new reality

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate. Marjorie Taylor Greene wanted everyone to know she was trying to be helpful. As Republicans feuded this month over who should lead their razor-thin House majority, the Georgia congresswoman stopped before a crowd of reporters at the U.S. Capitol and urged conservatives to unify behind her choice for speaker, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). If they refused, Greene warned, the House gavel - that all-important prize needed to subpoena Hunter Biden and anyone else she and the GOP want to haul before the committees they will soon control - could fall in the wrong hands. Like, Democratic hands. Or even Liz Cheney's hands. (Yes, it could happen, she insisted on a right-wing podcast.)

China, covid and climate

The protests erupting across China deserve international solidarity. The future of the planet could be determined by their success - or failure. On Saturday I posted something on social media asking if anyone knew of vigils or protests in solidarity with the Chinese protests anywhere in Britain. I have more than 5,000 “friends” and “followers” - and none of them knew anything.

The Decline and Fall of the Tory Empire

In a now-notorious 2012 pamphlet “Britannia Unchained: Global Lessons for Growth and Prosperity:,” Liz Truss and four other MPs elected in 2010 suggested that “the British are among the worst idlers in the world. We work among the lowest hours, we retire early and our productivity is poor.”
