One lesson from the UK: if the Democrats don't stop their hard-left slide, they'll suffer the same fate as Labour. If they don't move off their support for mass immigration, they're toast. Ditto the wokeness. Left Twitter is not reality.

An intriguing take, given Brexit was a precursor to Trump election. AS suggesting Tory landslide could be a precursor to Dem troubles in 2020.

AP finally honors one of its Chinese journalists, Y.C. Jao, who had been executed by the Communists for his ties to Westerners. Seymour Topping, the AP bureau chief in Nanjing in 1949, was expelled after Mao’s victory. Police executed Jao in 1951.

Quoted @KoriSchake

It's been a privilege to work with the 151 people of IISS these two years. Right now our national discussion about America's role in the world is urgent, though, so I’m coming home to lead @AEI's foreign and defense team starting in January. 1/2

We call it Kexit, the great @Korischake’s decision to leave rather than remain, and return to a divided Washington. AEI won the lottery. And all of us who love Kori’s insights and that infectious laugh are happy to have her back in DC.

The last time ⁦⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ met Sergey Lavrov in the Oval Office, it didn’t work out so well. This time the last major nuclear arms treaty may be at stake.

The conspiracy theory that won’t die. We did an entire episode about this. The fact that several sitting US Senators keep saying Ukaine interfered in the US election doesn’t make it true. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/26/podcasts/the-daily/trump-ukraine.html … https://twitter.com/thedailybeast/status/1203706863927414784 …

If the White House or US senators think the intel agencies and Justice Dept got it wrong, why haven’t they called for the withdrawal of the 2018 indictment of 12 Russian officers for masterminding DNC hack? I’ve asked this question of the admin. several times. No answer yet.

North Korea is a country which now has “nothing to lose,” Kim Yong Chol warned on Monday, in a statement rebuffing @realDonaldTrump for recent remarks in which he warned Kim Jong Un not to escalate tensions. @OliverHotham @rachelminyoung1 https://www.nknews.org/2019/12/north-korea-has-nothing-to-lose-top-official-warns-trump-as-tensions-mount/?t=1575885264463 …

Quoted @SpauldingSez

And so much of the information that could and should inform public debate on offensive use of cyber is classified. We need to find unclassified ways to talk about general capabilities, risks, process, and policy. https://twitter.com/CristinGoodwin/status/1203442038034685952 …

As usual, @SpauldingSez has it just right. Over-classification in cyber is inhibiting debate about how and when we want to use these weapons. It hurts our own deterrence. That’s one reason our team @nytimes is so committed to aggressive coverage of US offensive cyber program.

Fact check: Trump did not get NATO countries to pay $530 billion *a year* more. Not anywhere close. By 2024, NATO countries will have spent a *cumulative* $400 billion more over eight years, or an average of $50 billion more a year. And some of that increase began before Trump.

Terrific piece on Trump’s defending Saudis @SangerNYT @CarnegieEndow “Driven by oil, money, weapons sales, and a good deal of feting and flattery by Saudis, Trump has created a virtually impenetrable zone of immunity for Saudi Arabia.”

‘Even stranger was POTUS parroting the Saudi line before learning whether the gunman acted alone or had any ties to terrorists.’

Quoted @SecPompeo

We will not rest until we bring every American detained in Iran and around the world back home to their loved ones. We thank the Swiss government for facilitating the return of Mr. Wang, and are pleased the Iranian government has been constructive in this matter. (2/2)

Unusually diplomatic words from Trump administration's top diplomat concerning Iran cooperation in Xiyue Wang release.
