After Donald Trump ludicrously ditched visiting with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen because she said she wasn't game to sell Greenland to the United States, Trump is raging about the whole episode.
Trump says the prime minister of Denmark was Ã¢Â€ÂœnastyÃ¢Â€Â and Ã¢Â€ÂœinappropriateÃ¢Â€Â by publicly rejecting his unsolicited proposal to buy Greenland in the way she did. He says she couldÃ¢Â€Â™ve just said no, and heÃ¢Â€Â™s not going to let her talk to him that way.

I am back from my 14th annual Maine fishing camp.
The private event at Leen’s Lodge is generally called Camp Kotok in honor of David Kotok of Cumberland Advisors who started these outings many years ago.
CNBC and others began calling it the “Shadow Fed,” but it is really just a meeting of wickedly smart people focused on economics and markets. (I am allowed to attend for comic relief.)
We discussed the world’s problems and the general mood...
Planned Parenthood had a choice to make: Abide by the Trump administration’s new pro-life rules attached to Title X federal funding, or forgo the funding altogether. It chose the latter.
Denmark is a close American ally deserving of far better from President Trump. The American people, who expect their president will put U.S. interests before his own ego, also deserve better.
Michigan Court of Appeals Has Reversed the Felony Assault Convictions of a Gun Owner Who Acted in Self-Defense
One year after Siwatu-Salama Ra was convicted of assaulting a woman with a deadly weapon and committing a felony while in possession of a firearm, the Michigan Court of Appeals has reversed her conviction. Both charges stemmed from an incident in which Ra sought to protect herself, her 2-year-old daughter, and her mother from a woman who was threatening to run them down with her car.
As Reason previously reported, the incident in question occurred while Ra, then pregnant, was visiting her...

Pop culture lionizes the dazzling brilliance of money managers on the autism spectrum. Reality rarely measures up.
While speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, President Donald Trump tried to argue that his trade war was sapping China of its economic strength.
Instead, he inadvertently pointed out how the trade war is also hurting American companies—and seemed to suggest that his administration could be preparing to bail out of the world's most profitable businesses.
"If I didn't help certain companies—American companies, like Apple," Trump said, before promising that any assistance given to...
In an overdue but welcome move from the Trump administration, the Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday their new regulation replacing the Flores Settlement Agreement, which forces the separation of migrant children from their parents while they await asylum proceedings. For all that immigration activists and even members of the media have lambasted the DHS' elimination of the potentially illegal Flores settlement, it may right one of the worst humanitarian evils on the border: the...
In a single day, Donald Trump said he was refusing to meet with the prime minister of Denmark until that nation met his demand to hand over territory, and then went on to declare himself the Jewish Messiah. That’s not the kind of sentence that anyone ever expected to write about the leadership of the United States. But Trump’s latest one-two punch to history and rationality isn’t just another stride in his everlasting Gish Gallop—both parts are extraordinarily dangerous, and both are based on...
Apple is still working to move more iPhone production outside of China, mostly by pressuring chipmakers and the sources of other components to build assembly lines in Vietnam and elsewhere. But the company isn't totally giving up on China, and, in fact, is planning to source the OLED screens for its next generation of iPhones from a Chinese company called BOE Technology Group, according to Nikkei Asian Review.
Apple is reportedly nearly done certifying advanced screens from BOE, China's top...
Democratic donor and CBS host Gayle King on Wednesday gushed over the new production company started by Barack and Michelle Obama. Talking about their company Higher Ground and its new Netflix movie American Factory. Speaking as though she was blurbing a movie poster, King cheered, “They don't call their company Higher Ground for nothing. They want to do something that celebrates our core values as a country, and certainly celebrates the triumph and the human spirit. I can’t wait to see it.” It...
