Nr a Pain in The Caracass

From Venezuela to Cuba to the dingy NYC offices of Socialist rags, they’re ranting and howling over Otto Reich’s article in the current NR slamming the Latin America Castro-Chavez axis of evil, and urging Foggy Bottom to make confronting these two lefty jefes a priority:

The first task of the U.S., and whatever coalition of the willing it can muster in the region, is to confront the dangerous alliance posed by Cuba and Venezuela. Chávez’s misappropriation of Venezuela’s extraordinary oil wealth, and his willingness to subordinate the nation’s sovereignty to Castro’s ambitions, is emboldening anti-American movements that only a few years ago were weak, broke, and demoralized.

It’s serious stuff, but not available on NRO – only subscribers to NR the magazine (in either its “dead tree” or digital versions) can get Reich’s skinny on this major problem confronting America. That’s one of hundreds of reasons you should try NR Digital, which costs only $21.95 for a full year (a huge savings compared to the $65 cost for the paper product!). Sign up here.

The 24 Democrats

Every presidential primary ends with one winner and a lot of losers. Some might argue that one or two once-little-known candidates who overperform low expectations get to enjoy a form of moral victory. (Ben Carson and Rick Perry might be happy how the 2016 cycle ended, with both taking roles in Trump’s cabinet. ... Read More
