As the Jeffrey Lord-Mark Levin Neo-Conservative propaganda machine continues to try helplessly to retain lock & key over actual American history, readers may just find it interesting to know Angelo Codevilla, a Senior Editor at the American Spectator joined Mike last year to discuss the Straussian Neo Conservative’s love for nation building and imperial conquest. Mr. Codevilla dutifully explaining how he unlike Bill Kristol actually served in the military as opposed to Mr. Kristol who just pens trumped up reasons to send off more young men & women to die in the name of Empire.
“Today’s ruling class… was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history… Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats.”

Sort of the same way Dr. Ron Paul receives MORE support financially & otherwise from the actual troops than all other Republican candidates combined, gee wonders why that those agitating for war never mention little fact?
Thus does anyone have a “publish date” when Jeffrey Lord’s hit-piece against his senior editor painting him as a LEFTIST will be live over at the American Spectator?
