NATO 2% happy talk, Biden NATO speech, Biden's praetorian pledge, Sunak speech

The problems with the NATO defense spending happy talk. 19 allies are spending less than or just slightly more than the 2%-of-GDP minimum defense spending target

Biden rallies support for Ukraine and rightly salutes Jens Stoltenberg. The president broadly did a good job at the NATO leaders summit on Tuesday.

Biden commits to a Praetorian presidency. By pledging to serve out a full second term, Biden has essentially pledged that unelected advisors will hold executive power.

Rishi Sunak offers Biden and Trump an example of political civility. The former UK prime minister made an impressive speech in Parliament on Tuesday.
