But do they believe their own bs?: "The Democratic nominee is sticking to his strategy: Keep a low profile, and let Trump light himself on fire. “'This is a referendum on Trump, and we’re not playing his game. You shouldn’t, either,' the Biden adviser instructed. 'Real people don’t care about Biden’s travel. Fox [News] does. This is...

Impeachment Hearings

Wow. Kent making clear the importance to the establishment of bringing Ukraine into NATO ASAP. He called the Ukrainian militias fighting the people in the east, who are backed by Russian help, "minutemen" like those who served George Washington in America's War of Independence from Britain. Hey, why not? If there was any question here as to the real motives of the American coup plotters here, they've already been put to rest. To the Blob, the eastward expansion of America's military alliance in Eastern Europe is a sacred duty beyond question. No president has the right to overrule their...

Individuals Are the Ultimate Nullifiers

Individuals are the ultimate nullifiers. Legislation can set the stage to nullify federal acts by withdrawing cooperation and removing a lawyer of laws, but ultimately nullification is most effective when individuals are willing to do the things governments prohibit. The lack of regulation when state and local police stand down creates space for markets to grow, even when the minimal threat of federal enforcement remains. This is exactly what happened after Maine legalized marijuana through a voter referendum. The ballot initiative passed in November 2016 legalized marijuana. Sort of. The...
