What Is Trump’s Trade War Supposed to Accomplish? American Conservative
LOL, ‘critics accuse him of subverting the rule of law’, and apparently do so with straight faces even after Obama’s mass immunization of the Wall Street fraud cartels and shredding of most of the remaining tattered remnants of the Bill of Rights. And Martha Stewart’s ‘crimes’ were no worse than certain anomalously profitable cattle-futures trades by Trump’s opponent in the 2016 election. You can’t subvert what is already dead and buried.

FWIW, my Alabama dentist (who is very good, Birmingham has the best medical school in the South, so you can find high caliber service providers if you know where to go) always has HGTV on, and since I have pre-flouride era teeth, I spend more time in the dentist’s chair than most people and have wound up unduly familiar with HGTV offerings. I’ve long considered it to be real estate porn.
