I am very pleased to announce that my "Red Thread" series, which began at this website, has inspired a new work, The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.

Forthcoming from the Center for Security Policy Press, this monograph builds on my orginal posts on Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, John Brennan, Jonathan Winer, "Russians for Hillary," and others among the motely anti-Trump conspirators. It features masses of brand new material, drawing on thickly footnoted research on James Comey, the Frankfurt School, the CPUSA, Hillary Clinton, Strobe Talbott, John Kerry and more. Even at The Red Thread's svelte 104 pages of text, even as "the red thread" continues unspooling, what has already clearly emerged is an intellectual history of a coup with red roots not only in what we think of as the "Deep State," but in the ongoing Marxist...

Started the day with a Letter to the Editor of The Spectator US regarding "Andrew McCabe is the new Joe McCarthy" by Charles Lipson, a political science professor emeritus at the University of Chicago.  

Dear Sirs,

In Professor’s Lipson’s recent article, "Andrew McCabe is the new Joe McCarthy,” an egregious slander is perpetuated that cries out for correction.

The famous "decency" question asked by Army counsel Joseph Welch -- "Have you left no sense of decency?" -- reverberates through the ages, hounding Sen. Joseph McCarthy, who died in 1957, age 48, into perpetuity. Few can actually recall the details of the matter. Reader are prompted, Pavlov-style, to conjure a lurid scene of McCarthy's "recklessness" in "outing" some "innocent" person for his Communist Party affiliation.. 

The whole thing is a demonstrable fraud. 

Before the “Army-McCarthy”...

New at The Epoch Times!

Early in 2018, Franklin Foer published a cover story in The Atlantic titled “The Plot Against America: Paul Manafort and the Fall of Washington.” I think he inadvertently stumbled onto something.

Several points popped out that I can’t stop thinking about, especially now that Manafort is back in the special counsel’s crosshairs, and potentially faces a prison sentence that could well be a death sentence for the 69-year-old. They made me wonder then and they make me wonder now: Was the introduction of Manafort into the Trump campaign itself a “plot against America?”

The Foer article opens with a shocking sequence about Manafort’s time under medical care in 2015: 



“The clinic permitted Paul Manafort one 10-minute...

Take a look at the teeny tiny face of Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne (above). It is drastically dwarfed by that giant "Soviet banner of victory," which becomes a visual metaphor for the Washington Post itself as it enters a more florid stage of being Bezos' Red Banner. "Trump's war on socialism will fail," the op-ed headline declares, Pravida-pitch-perfect. 

Why "will Trump's war on socialism fail"? Grit your teeth as we enter a new era of New Deal Nostalgia. Because, Dionne tells us, socialism is actually the saving grace of democracy or some such rot. He invokes a "cheeky" New Deal lawyer named Jerome Frank to make this historically obscene case, quoting Frank as saying: “We socialists are trying to save capitalism, and the damned capitalists won’t let us.”

"Jerome Frank was right," Dionne writes. "Those slurred as socialists really do have a good track...
