My field of study in graduate school was communism...

I cite this in order to make this point: In my wildest dreams, I never imagined what I was studying would ever apply to the United States of America, the freest country in world history.

I assumed that communism was, for various reasons, something that happened elsewhere—most obviously, Russia, China, Vietnam, Cuba, Cambodia, and North Korea.

What were those various reasons? One was the absence of freedom in the history of those countries. Another was that all those countries were, with the exception of Cuba, outside of Western civilization.

All these years later, I see that I was wrong. Communism—or, if you will, left-wing fascism and totalitarianism—is coming to America and Canada, and (a bit more gradually) to Australia and New Zealand...


Indict One - And All? Were the opposition to match tit-for-tat these Democratic means, then the republic would not survive, by Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness, 2 April 2023:

1) Bragg promised in advance that he would try to find a way to indict Trump...

2) No former president has ever been indicted—and for good reason...

3) ... For a prosecutor of the same party as the current president facing reelection to seek to destroy the viability of a likely opponent is a first in U.S. history. But again, it is now in accordance with Third World norms...

6) The current indictment follows a long line of historic harassment of Trump...

2) Trump did not violate federal law, as did Hillary Clinton, by sending classified government communications on her own, through an unsecured home-brewed server.

3) Trump did not violate federal law, as did Hillary Clinton, by hiring—through three paywalls—a foreign national, who is prohibited from working on presidential campaigns, to compile a dossier to smear her presidential opponent...

6) Trump did not, as did Bill Clinton, receive a $500,000 “honorarium” for speaking in Moscow while his wife, our secretary of state, approved a longstanding and lucrative desire of the Kremlin for North American uranium to be sold to a Russian consortium....

By any fair application of past tradition and the law, Joe Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas should be impeached for their deliberate efforts to subvert U.S. immigration law for political purposes...
