A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

TL Davis distills a couple key points in 1 page

EXSUM: The free individual is by definition & simple existence the enemy of a collective, that collective reserving for itself the right to do violence & discarding the concept of private property. A quick read.

Beware the RINO in its natural habitat...the swamp...it seems to enjoy a political lifespan rivaling the half life of U-238...it is a known hermaphrodite and tends to multiply. It is also cannibalistic in nature and can even survive for decades on its own waste. Yes, beware the RINO.

Good read Badger. There is no mistaking the withering attacks on individual rights and property rights.

Also of note on the list: Joshua Kushner - brother of President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. Of course, we know Trump's daughter has demonstrated that she is anti 2A.

The influence of Most Precious First Snowflake™ is not to be discounted.
