9/11 didn’t bring us closer, why Paul Ryan’s job is safe & other comments.

Remember the chants of “USA! USA!” by first responders at Ground Zero as President George W. Bush greeted them three days after 9/11? David Harsanyi at The Federalist says that, at the time, “it seemed that the rest of American society” was cheering as well. But he “can’t help but wonder whether it would go down the same way” in today’s culture of “deep cynicism.” Because “whereas a beautiful or tragic moment might have once given us a respite from partisanship, we are no longer afforded such breaks.” The sad question to ponder: “What if those two or three weeks of harmony 16 years ago will be the last we experience for a very long time?”

Urban analyst: The Folly of NYC’s One-Party Politics

Speaking of cynicism, Bob McManus at City Journal says it justifiably “informs politics at every level” in New York City. One might have thought, given his record, that Mayor de Blasio “would have attracted a platoon of potential challengers” in this election year. Instead, Tuesday’s Democratic primary featured one gadfly and three political unknowns. Better-known rivals are “content to play New York’s unique game of plateau politics,” patiently awaiting “an opportunity to move up,” usually when terms limits kick in. Plateau politics is also why de Blasio was able to “feather special-interest nests from the outset” and let the beneficiaries — unions and developers — tamp down any “budding insurgencies.”

Security desk: Israeli Syria Strike Sends US a Message

Israel’s bombing last week of a military site in central Syria “where chemical weapons and precision bombs are said to be produced” was “fair warning” to Washington that “there are limits” to what it will tolerate on Iran’s presence in Syria, suggests Elliott Abrams at the Council on Foreign Relations. The choice of a stationary target, rather than a mobile one like truck caravans carrying such weapons, was also “a message to Iran, Syria and Lebanon.” And it came about because Vladimir Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu he would not “restrain Iran — his ally in Syria.” Neither, it appears, will the US. But, says Abrams, Washington should publicly declare approval of Israel’s action and commit its support, in case of conflict, for Israel to defend itself.

Culture critic: Now Miss America Goes All Political

To many, the Miss America pageant is “an anachronism,” says Carrie Lukas at Acculturated. Which is probably why Sunday night’s event took a page from cable news and turned the contestants into “political talking heads.” Inevitably, though, “the politically charged questions were rooted in a liberal world view.” Winner Cara Mund, from South Dakota, was quizzed on climate change and President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord. The other finalists were asked about Trump’s involvement with Russian campaign meddling, his response to Charlottesville and whether to remove Confederate statues — all “from a decidedly liberal perspective,” just like late-night comedy shows, major TV dramas and NFL games. But Americans, she suggests, “are tired” of having “every aspect of life boiled down to a referendum on Donald Trump.”

Political scribe: Relax, Ryan Isn’t Going Anywhere

Former White House adviser (and current Breitbart News head) Steve Bannon and the leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus are talking about ousting Paul Ryan as speaker of the House. Except, says Chris Cillizza at CNN, that it won’t happen: “Because, well, political reality.” Talking about it is one thing — and fairly easy. Actually doing it, though “is impossible . . . at least right now.” And for one simple reason: “You don’t beat someone with no one. And there is no one in the entire Republican conference in the House who could possibly hope to secure a majority of the GOP vote in a vacuum — much less when matched against Ryan,” who’s raised $22 million for the GOP campaign committee.

Tech writer: Apple Cloud Follows Us Everywhere

Apple, unveiling its latest products on the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, “wants everyone to have their heads lodged in their own personal clouds,” says April Glaser at Slate. The company “has been building wearable and pocket-size products that, when networked together, turn each user into a kind of internet of one, with various devices that patch into the user’s own cloud.” But while convenient, it’s “also alienating,” leaving users “cloistered” in their “own personal media environment.” And if we don’t look up occasionally, “we might forget that all the data swirling around us isn’t necessarily our own; it’s held at a private company that’s making more money than any other company in the world.”
