What a moron. MTG apparently hasn't been paying attention to the last 40-50 years...

...of this country's history, as industry after industry outsourced its production abroad. Hint to MTG: it didn't have anything to do with "regulation".

I work in the electronics field (don't want to dox myself beyond that), and I can tell you that the most advanced semiconductor production is now done in exactly two locations on the planet. It is possible that we are now far enough behind that we can't catch up.

MTG being elected in the first place is evidence of the decline that she so strongly avows.

PillowMan best get used to paying, and paying, and paying...

...because he's going to be doing a lot of that for years to come. He's on the hook for something like $2B to the voting machine companies. He's so broke that he just sold a shitty '80s-vintage corporate jet for 1000 times less ($2M) to "raise funds". Lindell's not looking like a big dough roller lately.

Yes, I remember you going after Ingraham, especially for her ostentatiously displayed...

...crucifix from the Little Sisters of the Poor (IIRC). Her attitude and speech certainly don't show any evidence for her Catholic beliefs.

Ironically, the extremist alt-right radtrads absolutely hate the EWTN and Opus Dei crowd for being...too liberal. They also hate that about 95% of them--especially the ones on EWTN--are all converts. It doesn't help that the EWTN "stars" can't ever seem to leave their Protestantism behind.

The CIC mentioned in the article has been a significant force in politics for some time.

There was a scandal a few years ago involving the rector of the CIC, Fr. C. John McCloskey, who was removed from his position by Opus Dei. He was responsible for the very public conversion of a lot of neocon and far-right figures: Robert Novak, Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich, Robert Bork, and others I can't recall.

McCloskey was also one of the "stars" (gag) on the execrable EWTN Catholic network. He had a regular show focused on Catholic writers. Nearly all of them were the typical sort of authors supported by "think" tank bulk buyers with which DUers are familiar.

By the way, the CIC is on K Street, a very expensive place to be, and an area better known for white-shoe law firms and lobbying groups.

Touche.

BTW, what's up with the title area of a post not being able to use accent characters?

For example: touché

You can't do that in the title, but you can in the message area? Oh, well.

nice to see Orban is still using all the alt-right dog whistles...

...Soros ( = Jew), "woke", "reconquer the West", "Christian civilization", etc. He's still kicking out the old jams that are deader than disco. I'm surprised he didn't use any of the 4Chan Pepe memes, e.g. "remember what (((they))) took from you" and "reject (((degeneracy))), embrace tradition".

What's new is that Orban is now unapologetically hostile to "open societies". That is a direct attack on Soros, who founded the Open Society Foundation. It is also an attack on the "Western way of life" for which he claims reverence. Apparently Orban would have us return to the bad old days of the Iron Curtain, as long as he could be the one in charge.

The writer of the article, Grace Emily Stark, is also a "Ramsey Institute Fellow"...

...at the "Center for Bioethics and Culture". IOW, more wingnut welfare. It looks like a Protestant Evangelical group that's been infiltrated by Catholic radtrads obsessed with pelvic issues. There's a little information at the links below. The CBC has enough resources for two locations (MO and CA), so they're not a small organization.

Isn't The Federalist the wingnut welfare magazine that Meghan McCain's husband runs?

https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Jennifer_C._Lahl (CBC director and a real piece of work)

And too much Reddit, DLive,...

...4Chan/8Chan/8kun/whatever the hell they call it now. The Buffalo massacre was literally murder by Pepe meme.

When it's someone else's money, most likely.

PillowMan is almost certainly spending someone else's money. It's the same situation when it comes to him jet-setting all over the country, appearing at every Drumpf rally, etc. PillowMan is broke. He's on the hook for something like $2B for the voting machine company lawsuits (which he's certain to lose), and he just sold a crappy '80s business jet for a thousand times less ($2M) to "raise funds". That's a pretty desperate look. You don't do that if you're a big dough roller.

Freudian slip.

It's hard to believe how long ago that was now. Compared with the vulgar criminality of Drumpf, the "W" administration seems almost quaint.
