Define “imminent threat”

 

Still getting up too early these days…  Over on YouTube this morning, looking for music to listen to, lol.  Here’s a real blast from the past.  I loved the Beatles. I love this song!   My oldest sister, who is 8 years older than me,  had a lot of records, I loved listening to all her records, because the Beatles were more her age group than mine, being a teen in the 70s.  I loved her Barbra Streisand albums too.  Nice break from the SPIN.   Yesterday, geesh walked past the TV, where  my husband has FOX News on constantly in the sunroom – they were busy recycling “the North Korea crisis” SPIN  again…  Old Seb and John Bolton, “President Trump must do something” ..blah, blah, blah, “They’ve got labor camps there”…

No shit, but it used to be real events that triggered an international crisis – now it’s Seb Gorka(God, that man is an idiot, imo),General Keane and John Bolton…  What’s up with that???  The North Korean nuke crisis has been an “imminent threat” for the last decade, always SPUN with a sliding timeline of when North Korea is expected to have nuclear weapons…  Color me just a bit tired of all these “crises”.  North Korea might pop off a few missiles to gin it up,  pressure the US, but “imminent threat” needs some serious work on defining more precisely.  Just my opinion.  I’ve got to do some housework today… if I don’t get sidetracked by youtube videos, lol.  Have a nice day:-)

The Plan

“A republic may, likewise, be brought to its original form, without recourse to ordinances for enforcing justice, by the mere virtues of a single citizen, by reason that these virtues are of such influence and authority that good men love to imitate them, and bad men are ashamed to depart from them.”

—-Discourses on Livy, Book III, Chapter 1, For a sect or Commonwealth to last long it must often be brought back to its Beginnings

Many years ago, in my messages of mhere adventure, I wondered how on earth to bring this story to a conclusion.  I had already written about the SPIN brand of information warfare on the Excite messages boards, during the scorched earth impeachment mess.  I had realized it relied on a mass media domination strategy akin to swarming.  All the ideas that floated through my head were centered on how to, not only, break through the message wall, but how to DEFEAT SPIN information warfare in America.

The usual military strategic thinker, myself included, would keep focusing on ways to overwhelm it or shut it down.  That is how the military strategic mind assesses “defeating the enemy”.  Every avenue my mind could imagine focused on overwhelming SPIN.  I pondered and pondered, thinking, like a guy, – the overwhelming force approach and all those options were scary, especially for someone like me who abhors violence and is scared of guns.  So, then I thought, about Sun Tzu, and the answer hit me.  Just speak the truth, day in, day out, calmly, politely and with me, there’s gonna be some snark, because that’s just ME, lol.  A whole lot of other people will need to speak the truth too.

“For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill.  To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”

— Sun Tzu, Offensive Strategy

In 2016, Donald Trump, through a series of events, first the corrupt Bill Clinton triangulation (GOP insurgency) effort, giving Trump BILLIONS of dollars in free media, then Trump’s gift for showmanship, acquiring some 24/7 media avenues (FOX, major pundits, newspapers) and most of all his personal Twitter account, managed to break through the Left’s lock on the 24/7 news SPIN cycle, which had been maintained since the 90s.

Trump managed to break through the Left’s SPIN lock, by outrunning their OODA loops, he could “steal the show”, often several times a day, with an outrageous tweet or comment, which resulted in faster SPIN cycles and that left his SPIN “Fake News” agitprop operators (most of the mainstream media) recycling through old Trump SPIN messaging. They were back on the “Trump the fascist messaging – with the orchestrated military parade controversy again). The Trump taxes, Trump women, Trump the racist are all orchestrated SPIN agitprop messaging salvos.

While Trump did break through their messaging wall, both sides are locked down in this scorched earth, yet neither can suppress nor defeat the other, so on it drags.

The Left’s SPIN apparatus is headed by the Clintons, it includes a large network of operatives and people, such as Terry Lenzner, who provide the Clintons with their own private, global intelligence apparatus. The Cody Shearer memo, speaks to the Lenzner connection again. Also closely aligned with the Clintons is Sid Blumenthal, who runs the Clintons SPIN agitprop operations, which probably explains why I was hunted down and attacked.  I suspect there was hostile infiltration in the Clinton’s SPIN operations effort then & now.   The Clintons also have several friendly retired generals, to bolster whatever SPIN, they are peddling.  One of those Clinton-friendly generals was recruited in 1998. How many others were involved remains an open question.  Sid Blumenthal’s operations need to be investigated.

In my search for a way to defeat SPIN, those many years ago, I kept asking myself:  What is SPIN?  By focusing on the information warfare aspect of it, I was missing the simple, obvious answer.  What defeats SPIN (LIES) is the TRUTH.  My objective is to peacefully and politely, find a national platform to speak the TRUTH.   My other imperatives are that no violence be used in this effort and that no laws be broken.  I believe in playing by the rules and in America that is The Constitution.

Gaining that foothold on the national stage has not been achieved, yet, but that is my goal. I am not alone, otherwise I would have already been silenced (been there, done that many times over the years, with computer “issues”. How many people are helping me, I have no earthly idea. That is the truth – I don’t know.  My plan is very simple really – WHEN I get a foothold on the national stage, I intend to stand there, day in, day out and speak the truth, peacefully and politely.   Let’s call it “Sue’s Storytime Hour”,  since Trump’s already got the road rallies aced and the Clintons own the 24/7 mainstream media airwaves.   I’d like just a few minutes a day to give reporters my side of the story, to be entered into the national SPIN info war mix too;-)  Anything wrong with that?  I always try to be nice to people, so I intend to just be ME. I wrote my ideas on this in my Penzu journals, so if the 2 state judges, who have my password, are reading that – there it is out in the open – the only thing that can defeat a SPIN tsunami, where they will turn my friends and family against me, put them up there to present me as some “threat” or deranged person is to come forward and speak.  Hopefully, I’ll have a few other good guys helping me speak the truth.  America is long overdue for some heaping doses of high-octane brand THE TRUTH!

I was rather alarmed yesterday, when my one son sent me a private facebook message joking about some horrible computer game he was playing “Plague” or something like that.  My immediate thought, was “Oh shit, what if they lie to these generals that this is a bioweapon” emergency”… In 1998, they lied to a retired general, to recruit him to attack me in my home, all over comments, which I had posted about SPIN … and…  comments such as “no one is above the law”.  I refused to be silenced and kept arguing against their SPIN messaging,  pointing out how it was LIES.  They couldn’t silence me.

So, think about that – what happened in 2016 with the online trolls, in comment sections, was considered such a new threat, but it happened to me in 1998 on the Excite message boards…

That indicates, to me at least, that they have been operating with our national security people, unaware, until the last few years.  With the attack on me, the one thing I can guarantee is the general who was played to attack an enlisted family – was lied to – he was deliberately fed false intelligence.  He would not ever have attacked my home otherwise. This isn’t about me – it’s about they turned American soldiers against each other – for partisan political purposes. That can not stand in America – it must be exposed.

When this is over all I really want to know is why people, many in my own family, believed all these lies and why do they hate me this much?  That’s the answer I want.  I try to be nice to everyone, I like to help people and I don’t even have a speeding ticket.  I like to cook and sew and make gifts for my family and friends.  I like to do volunteer work.

I just wanted to write this – anyone reading this not aware of the whole long messages of mhere story, I am sorry you’ll have some catching up to do, to even begin to understand this post.

I wanted to add this bit of personal explanation:  Why I have continued to work every day since I escaped from being sent to a state mental hospital, where they were trying commit me to a state mental hospital permanently, is because I swore an oath to defend The Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Words matter.

Keeping your word, is a sacred TRUST.

The other reason, I continue on, is, it is my DUTY under the Code of Conduct – I must make every effort to escape.  I never could have imagined being attacked like this, on American soil, by a retired general who was fed lies, but no matter what, I will continue to work to expose those events.

2016 Russian Collusion count

Reported 2016 Russian Collusion count: 2 for Team Clinton and 2 for Team Trump.

Team Clinton:

The Steele dossier, was Russian collusion, with the Clinton campaign and DNC hiring a retired British spy, Christopher Steele to dig up Russian dirt on Donald Trump.  That Russian dirt, unverified and from unknown Russian sources has been used by the Obama Justice Dept. to launch investigations into the Trump campaign and is also the major SPIN cover for the #Resist effort.

The second Clinton Russian collusion effort, is reported to also have been successful at digging up Russian dirt on Donald Trump.  The Guardian reports:

The second memo was written by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s.

Unlike Steele, Shearer does not have a background in espionage, and his memo was initially viewed with scepticism, not least because he had shared it with select media organisations before the election.

However, the Guardian has been told the FBI investigation is still assessing details in the “Shearer memo” and is pursuing intriguing leads.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/30/trump-russia-collusion-fbi-cody-shearer-memo

The Shearer memo mirrors much of the Steele dossier.  Imagine that… So, the FBI is seriously using dirt from a Clinton sleaze operative, part of the old Clinton-scandals-witness-intimidation-squad, to bolster the Steele dossier…

Next up, the two Team Trump Russian collusion efforts did not bear fruit.

The Don. Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer, that was spun as a discussion about Russian adoption, fizzled.  Andrew McCarthy wrote about that in his article, The Gang That Couldn’t Lie Straight.

The other Trump campaign effort was a Republican operative, Peter Smith, who was reported to have tried to hire a British security firm to locate Russian hackers, with the intention of buying Hillary’s emails.  Smith died last year in May, 10 days after talking to a WSJ reporter.  Smith is reported to have committed suicide:

“At the time, the newspaper reported Smith’s May 14 death came about 10 days after he granted the interview. Mystery shrouded how and where he had died, but the lead reporter on the stories said on a podcast he had no reason to believe the death was the result of foul play and that Smith likely had died of natural causes.

In the note recovered by police, Smith apologized to authorities and said that “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” was involved in his death. He wrote that he was taking his own life because of a “RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017” and timing related “TO LIFE INSURANCE OF $5 MILLION EXPIRING.””

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-peter-smith-death-met-0713-20170713-story.html

Further on in that same Chicago Tribune story is this fascinating bit of info:

“Smith’s death occurred at the Aspen Suites in Rochester, records show. They list the cause of death as “asphyxiation due to displacement of oxygen in confined space with helium.”

Rochester police Chief Roger Peterson on Wednesday called Smith’s manner of death “unusual,” but a funeral home worker said he’d seen it before.”

Color me just a tad suspicious…  10 days after talking to a WSJ reporter…  Who knows, his Russian collusion may have been successful, but unlike the Steele dossier, I am sure Lynch and Comey would not have been using recovered emails from her”extremely careless” homebrew server, as evidence in Hillary’s “no intent”,  ummm, “matter”…

Stranger than fiction.  Can’t wait to see the next chapter in this 2016 never ending Russian collusion “riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma” (psst, that’s part of a 1939 Winston Churchill quote about Russia).

Later, I am cooking supper.

Showdown at high noon…

Andrew McCarthy  penned a very interesting piece at National Review, The Gang That Couldn’t Lie Straight.

Yes, the Trump campaign was “colluding with Russians” trying to get dirt on Hillary at that Don Jr., Trump Tower meeting with the Russian lawyer, according to Andrew McCarthy.   There were discussions and a conference call between Don Jr., Hicks and Trump, who dreamed up this story, that it was a discussion about Russian adoption.  Some other Trump campaign peeps had put out a different story, so there was some clean-up going on. There are some emails and Hicks supposedly told some other guy that those emails will never see the light of day (this was before the Mueller investigation began, I think). McCarthy says it’s not enough to make for a prosecution of obstruction of justice on its own and explains all the details.

Very interesting – since the Steele dossier was also dirt acquired through “Russian collusion”, funded by the DNC & Clinton campaign, so the FBI was using that info, which came from “Russian collusion”, paid for by the Clinton campaign/DNC, all to go after Trump for “Russian collusion” …  I guess it’s it takes Russian collusion to catch Russian collusion, all roads lead to Moscow, … or something like that.

The GOP (I suspect Gowdy helped write the GOP explanation) put out a timeline explaining why this Nunes memo release is important.  I love timelines and there’s a timeline from July 2016 around the time of Comey’s “no intent” statement, with this FISA warrant being sought and this Trump/Russian collusion spin starting about Carter Page. And there’s some unnamed person who was reportedly involved in feeding Steele information, during a crucial week in this timeline. A British paper reported that person is Cody Shearer, the old intimidating witnesses thug, who worked with Clinton fixer, Terry Lenzner.

Funny it took a year for us to find out the Steele dossier was funded by the DNC & Clinton campaign and used in any way to secure a FISA warrant to investigate the Trump campaign.  Mueller should expand his investigation and investigate the Clinton campaign “Russian collusion” and the FBI use of this Steele dossier in Lynch’s DOJ.

Then yesterday the Dems went full-throttle with this Red Scare McCarthy spin accusing Nunes of working for the Kremlin, and later Paul Ryan too.   I wondered if Hannity reads my tweets, because he was going hard and heavy about how the Steele dossier was “Russian collusion”. Interestingly, Saint Comey tweeted an angry tweet using the Dem Red Scare, Joe McCarthy spin to attack Republicans and “weasels & liars”.  Yet, Hillary was just “extremely careless” in not turning over 13 blackberries & 2 laptops, which were under subpoena, her lawyers destroying around 30,000 emails, lying to the FBI, having that IT firm Bleachbit their server and Comey said there was “no intent” there…

Comey is so wrapped up in his belief that he is a pillar of moral rectitude, that he doesn’t realize how bad it looks that he was going along with the Clinton spin calling the investigation just a “matter” rather than a criminal investigation.   It would be illegal for him to send classified FBI information to his friend/lawyer with the “intent” to leak to the media,  to instigate a SPIN tsunami, as cover, orchestrating a special prosecutor being appointed.   Senator Grassley alleges classified information is in those FBI memos.  If there is, did his friend/lawyer have a security clearance or “need to know”.   Were these FBI notes sent via unsecure private email and how were they maintained?

His angrily tweeting using the Dem’s Joe McCarthy spin is another interesting Comey tell.

Also, telling is the angry Dem tweet from Eric Holder. I still wonder who that redacted name is in those FBI notes on Hillary’s FBI interview, in which Strzok was the lead for the FBI team “interviewing” her. Why redact Amy Saharia’s name, when the Clinton team gave that name to the NY Times, to report on Hillary’s FBI interview? This smells like the same snow job as when she collapsed at that 9/11 ceremony in 2016 and her spinners fed the media a story that she was just dehydrated and left early, but some person videotaped her being held up and collapsing.   That video hit Twitter and so several more Clinton spin lines emerged.  The mainstream media pivoted to attacking Trump peeps for hyping her health.

The FBI/DOJ peeps involved in her interview, that Comey described as pillars of professionalism, when explaining to Congress that his “no reasonable prosecutors would prosecute” was a unanimous decision, well,  they sure are looking not so “professional”. So, who all was involved in that unanimous decision and more importantly, who all was present at Hillary’s FBI interview.  I don’t believe Bill Clinton would allow Hillary to walk into that FBI interview, without either himself or a long-time Clinton fixer there, perhaps someone like “fast and furious” Eric Holder.  Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in AZ the week before, so he was orchestrating this, I believe.

Americans deserve to know who all was present for Hillary’s FBI interview and also who all was part of that team of “career professionals”.

Funny,  how they basically entrapped people & orchestrated SPIN tsunamis to proceed with this Trump Russian collusion investigation, but Hillary ignored subpoenas, there’s evidence of a conspiracy to destroy piles of emails and evidence, the one private IT guy Bleachbit a Clinton server, and even though he was under subpoena, he refused to talk to Congress and didn’t show up to testify.  And again, Mills & Samuelson, with Kendall, “sorted” through the emails on that server, looking for the State Dept ones to return, then destroyed the others, but Samuelson, with Mills, who helped “sort”, was at Samuelson’s  side. as her lawyer, for that interview.  Mills claimed attorney client privilege and Samuelson refused to tell the FBI what keywords they used to search the homebrew server… “No intent” indeed…

Comey told Trump 3X in private that he wasn’t under investigation, even though it’s obvious he was and yet, Comey refused to say that in public. Then the Clinton spin team worked to fuel the “Trump Russian collusion” hysteria in public and Comey used Trump’s comments in those private conversations to feed the spin for calls for a special prosecutor.  This is the same tactic they have used with others in the Trump investigation, or strong-arm tactics like with Flynn and with Manafort, the FBI launched a predawn raid, but with Hillary’s emails – they sold her spin to airbrush the obstruction of justice and classified information, which she was grossly negligent handling.

Sorry, for going on so long here, sort of venting, because the Queen being above the law, always sticks in my craw.

Mueller needs to expand his “Russian collusion” investigation to include investigating the Steele dossier & FBI’s use of it. Mueller, trusted in Comey’s integrity – big mistake there and now the “career professionals” Mueller was trusting don’t look so “professional”.

Finally, if Cody Shearer was involved in feeding Steele information, then why didn’t the FBI know that?  Why didn’t they know this was DNC/Clinton funded Russian dirt they dug up?

Another Obama national security fail

This is an important story: Report claims Dutch intel alerted U.S. to Russian DNC hacking

John Schindler wrote a piece on this story that’s worth reading: Dutch Report Reveals Obama Administration Knew About Russian Hacking in Real Time

It is amazing that the Obama administration did nothing to thwart the Russians cyber warfare and only after the 2016 election, finally imposed sanctions.  This makes the Dem Russia hysteria so hypocritical.

Spinning out of control…

Warning: This is another post about mass media information war in America.

The Left is ginning up  a spin attack to set the stage for obstruction of justice against Trump and Trump forces are ginning up attacks against the extreme bias in the Obama DOJ and FBI, which led to the Mueller investigation.  The original rationale for the Mueller investigation was the allegation that Trump colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election.

To date, the Steele dossier has been exposed as another Clinton funded dirty trick and it’s still unknown if that dossier, which James Comey asserted, under oath in 2017, was salacious and unverified, was used to secure FISA warrants during 2016 to investigate some Trump campaign officials.  Two members of the DOJ, who were involved in both the Hillary email investigation and who had joined Mueller’s team to investigate Trump/Russian collusion, have been exposed as having an affair and of texting many extremely anti-Trump political views.

To date no evidence of actual Trump/Russian collusion in 2016 has been released to the American people.  The Democrats pushing the Trump/Russian collusion spin have now pivoted to changing the spin to Trump obstructed justice when he fired James Comey last year.  The New York Times launched another big spin gambit last night  for the Dems, with a report that last summer Trump ordered the WH legal counsel to fire Mueller, but aides talked Trump out of it and the WH counsel threatened to resign.   This breathless NY Times “revelation” was launched to counter the Strzok/Page texts story, which has been gaining traction in the 24/7 spin battle.

The 2016 scorched earth information war continues to blow out of control.

I always keep coming back to writing about SPIN.  America is reaching a critical stage in this endless 2016 SPIN information war.  The reason I still keep trying to sound the warning against SPIN, which requires extreme levels of mass media collusion to gain control of America’s 24/7 news cycle, is because it is fueling extreme partisanship in America and destroying the core principles required for our constitutional system to survive.

Our constitutional system was founded on compromise.  Our founders who met in Philadelphia in 1787, to iron out details for the United States Constitution, arrived with many deeply opposing views and political demands for the new government being formed.  To reach a consensus, a great deal of debate ensued, but in the end a great deal of compromising ensued.   Compromising and working to find some common ground remain central requirements for our constitutional republic to function and remain strong.

Extreme partisanship is an enemy of The Constitution.  This escalating domestic SPIN information war is as much of a threat to America as anything the Russians or our other enemies can do to us using information warfare.

Since 1998, I’ve remained committed to using whatever small internet voice I have, to write about the dangers of SPIN.  The constantly escalating SPIN attacks have fostered a political environment where conspiracy theories on both sides spread rapidly, fuel partisan fears and distrust, and destroy any hope of Americans finding common ground for fixing problems in America.  This heightened distrust permeates down to main street America and even among many school children, where teachers have drawn children into the partisan divisiveness.

The 2016 election SPIN was highly corrupt, with the mainstream media and FOX News giving Trump billions of dollars during the GOP primary to aid his “GOP Insurgency”.  The mainstream media sat on dirt about Trump during those months, because they were aiding the Clinton Pied Piper strategy to promote the most divisive GOP candidates.  This was part of Bill Clinton’s signature triangulation strategy.

Bill Clinton’s triangulation strategy, of which this Pied Piper strategy was a vital part, was meant to set the general election stage, so that Hillary could claim the middle political ground, while casting  Bernie Sanders as a far-left kook and have a Republican opponent, whom could be cast as a far-right kook.  Trump and Cruz both fit that bill in the GOP primary.   Trump was learning how to use SPIN during the GOP primary and there were many times where he seemed amazed at how well spinning was working for him.  FOX News moved to becoming the 24/7 Trump Channel.

Unlike every other Republican candidate since 1992, Trump is the first GOP candidate ever to go all-in on using the Dems form of scorched earth information warfare and he is the first GOP candidate to have the connections to wield a powerful mass media platform ( FOX News, several newspapers, numerous online sites, Twitter, and of course right-wing talk radio) that could defeat the Left’s control of the mass media 24/7 news spin cycle.

In late 2015/early 2016 with the “GOP Insurgency” leaving the GOP in disarray, the mainstream media made a dramatic pivot to unleashing the piles of dirt on Trump that they had been sitting on, while aiding the Clinton Pied Piper effort to destroy the GOP with the “GOP Insurgency”.

The evolution of SPIN in 2016 election

1. Mainstream media & FOX news gave Trump BILLIONS of dollars in free media during the GOP primary.

2. The mainstream media sat on mountains of dirt on Trump during this time. They were aiding the Clinton Pied Piper strategy.

3. Mainstream media pivoted in late 2015 to early 2016 timeframe to dump on Trump, once Trump had succeeded to tear the GOP apart.

4. FOX News went full throttle Trump propaganda 24/7.

5. Mainstream media went full throttle when Trump unexpectedly won the election.

6. FOX News & mainstream media are participating (not objectively reporting) in this scorched earth information war.

7. Americans are bombarded with extreme partisan propaganda dressed up as “news” 24/7.

8. Mass media collusion is required  for partisans to wage this type of mass media information war.

We all know what happened when Trump surprisingly won the 2016 election.  The Left, with the constant collusion of the mainstream media, launched efforts to cast doubt on Trump’s win and fuel hysteria about Trump colluding with the Russians.  The Left has worked feverishly to #Resist – which is a euphemism for destroying Trump and doing everything possible to get him impeached.

This war is still raging.  Many “warriors” on both sides have sacrificed their own integrity and lost all sense of perspective, by convincing themselves that the cause to either take down Trump or prop him up is an existential threat to our political system.  There’s been endless hysterical opining about dangerous “attacks on our institutions” … by both sides.

Here’s the thing and it’s why I have continued to write about SPIN, when in truth I wish I had never even heard of SPIN information warfare in America:

  1. It creates an atmosphere in America where Americans perceive those with opposing political views as enemies of America and a threat to The Constitution.
  2. It makes Americans more willing to believe the worst possible things and the most bizarre conspiracy theories about other Americans.
  3. It creates an atmosphere where Americans believe those with differing political views are an existential threat to America

SPIN information warfare turns American citizens against other American citizens.

This escalating 2016 scorched earth SPIN information warfare is a more urgent threat to The Constitution than any information warfare operations the Russians or our other foreign enemies can wage against Americans.

Our domestic scorched earth information warfare leaves us completely vulnerable to foreign disinformation aimed at fueling divisions in American.

Even worse it leaves us fractured and hinders us from uniting to counter foreign threats.

It’s time to end the 2016 scorched earth information war in America and it’s way past time for American partisans to stop engaging in mass media information warfare.

A couple links

Andrew McCarthy at National Review wrote an interesting piece on the Russian/NRA connection: Collusion 3-0: Russia and the NRA

McCarthy details the Trump/Russian collusion narrative and how so far that narrative keeps imploding, despite Democrats and the mainstream media maintaining over a yearlong stream of hysterical spin.  McCarthy also points out the larger point that keeps getting lost in the rabid partisan battle – we really do need to investigate and figure out the extent of Russian infiltration of American institutions.  By so politicizing Russian information warfare efforts in 2016 and turning it into a domestic partisan issue, it’s going to be very hard to even understand the full scope of the Russian efforts and even harder to defeat them.  The Russians will easily continue to manipulate and egg on the rabid American partisans.

On Twitter this morning, I came across this Weekly Standard piece on immigration that’s worth a read too: Why America Needs People from ‘Shithole’ Countries
