Fearless Ann takes on that pomposity O’Reilly on the issue of 14th amendment anchor babies

The only thing that really disappointed me about this essay is that John Yoo has gone to the dard side with the emperor and Darth Vador and is now a shill.

You thought that American campaign contributions from foreigners were verboten?

Naw, not in the new international system of political corruption. It was probably going on all the while, but in the last 20 plus years has become epidemic.

How the socialist statists became so powerful here and abroad–a story

The “March Through the Institutions” became the Marxist/Leninist strategy after the hoped for revolution was defused by the progress of human welfare during the industrial revolution.
