First, We Take Buenos Aires

He refers to leftists as “shit” – often and with gusto. He’s a trained economist – a self-described libertarian and “anarcho-capitalist” – who wants to reduce government, slash regulations and curb inflation by ditching his country’s central bank for the U.S. dollar and crypto. And he just persuaded 56 percent of a dejected, poverty-racked country’s voters to put him in charge. Meet Javier Milei, Argentina’s new president. Bonus feature: see here what Milei really thinks of leftists.

Why won’t America Strike the Head of the Snake?

Melanie Phillips on her Substack assesses U.S. President Joe Biden’s response to Hamas’ October 7 pogrom.
