“How’s The Weather, Donald?”
“It’s Raining Knives”

by Smitty Here are the first there paras of a must-read Angelo Codevilla essay over at the Federalist: The Obama years have brought America to the brink of transformation from constitutional republic into an empire ruled by secret deals promulgated by edicts.

Did @Nian_Hu ‘Friend-Zone’ You? #FreeStacy: Feminism Is a Death Cult
