    But he’s still right. It was extortion.
    I think extortion is a stretch. If the Biden threat to withhold a billion dollars in aid to get a prosecutor fired wasn't, I don't see how Trumps deal was. Both were sketchy, I'll say that much.

    You’re confusing coordinated US and NATO policy with some orange guys re-election campaign.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I don't understand how you can fail to see that one is advancing US national interests and the other is advancing nothing other than Trump's personal ambitions.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."
