“Stock losses accelerated as markets closed on Monday, pulled down by a broad sell-off in technology companies and revived worries that global economic growth is slowing. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 602 points, or more than 2 percent, to end Monday at 25,387. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index shed 1.97 percent, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq composite closed down 2.78 percent.” (11/12/18)

“Palestinian militants on Monday fired some 200 rockets into Israel, a day after a senior Israeli army officer and seven militants, including a Hamas commander, were killed in a botched mission in the Gaza Strip, according to reports. A 19-year-old Israeli soldier was critically injured by an anti-tank missile launched from Gaza, while several people in the southern city of Sderot suffered light shrapnel injuries, the Israeli Haaretz reported. The Iron Dome air defense system intercepted about 60 of the incoming projectiles, but the majority struck homes in Israeli communities along the border, including Be’er Sheva and Ashkelon.” (11/12/18)

3) Mexico: Migrant caravan moves on western city of Guadalajara
Source: San Francisco Chronicle

“Several thousand Central American migrants heading for the U.S. border arrived in the western Mexico city of Guadalajara with help from truckers and other motorists Monday, marking a month since their trek began. Many of the migrants boarded waiting buses at the Jalisco state line that carried them to a shelter prepared for them in the city’s Benito Juarez Auditorium. Guadalajara municipal police shuttled others in patrol vehicles. The migrants are mostly families from Honduras. At the shelter, officials had the migrants form two lines — one for families and one for men traveling alone. They were offered food and told where to go for donated clothing and free internet to contact their families. Most appear intent on taking the Pacific coast route northward to the border city of Tijuana, which is still about 1,550 miles (2,500 kilometers) away. The migrants have come about 1,200 miles (1,900 kilometers) since they started out in Honduras around Oct. 13. While they previously suffered from the heat on their journey through Honduras, Guatemala and southern Mexico, they now trek along highways wrapped in blankets to fend off the morning chill.” (11/12/18)

5) Spain: Court wants Catalonian independence leaders to pay cost of “illegal” secession referendum
Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“A Spanish court has ordered former Catalan leader Artur Mas to repay the costs of organising an illegal [sic] vote on independence four years ago. Mr Mas and nine other former officials have to repay €4.9m (£4.3m; $5.6m) of public funds. The independence consultation of 9 November 2014 was a forerunner of last year’s disputed referendum. Carles Puigdemont, who succeeded Mr Mas and now lives in self-imposed exile in Belgium, condemned the court ruling. Writing on Twitter, he described the court ruling as ‘an abuse and an unworthy arbitrary act,’ and likened Spain’s new Socialist Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, to his conservative predecessor, Manual Rajoy.” (11/12/18)

“A suicide bomber struck near an anti-Taliban rally in Kabul on Monday, killing at least four people, officials said, as a lawmaker reported that insurgents killed at least 20 Afghan policemen over the past 24 hours in eastern Ghazni province. … Ali Akbar Qasemi said the fighting in Ghazni since Sunday has focused on the district of Jaghuri where 20 policemen have been killed. The Afghan army chief, Gen. Mohammad Sharif Yaftali, told reporters that government forces have sustained casualties but declined to elaborate on specifics or say how many were killed. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid took responsibility for the Jaghuri attacks and claimed in a text message to the media that the Taliban have also captured Ghazni’s district of Malistan.” (11/12/18)

Source: New Zealand Herald [New Zealand]

“A black security guard has been fatally shot by police after he stopped a customer who had opened fire at a bar in Illinois. Witnesses say the armed guard was trying to detain an armed man following a shooting at a suburban Chicago bar, authorities said. Investigators said 26-year-old Jemel Roberson was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to a hospital following the shooting at Manny’s Blue Room in Robbins, just south of Chicago. Four other people were shot and wounded during the incident, including a man who police believe fired a gun before police arrived, Cook County sheriff’s spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said. When police arrived at the scene, Roberson was holding ‘somebody on the ground with his knee in his back, with his gun in his back,’ witness Adam Harris told WGN-TV. ‘Everybody is screaming out, ‘He’s a security guard,” Harris said. Roberson was licensed to carry a firearm, Ansari said. Charges were pending against the man who investigators believe fired the initial shots during a dispute.” [editor’s note: But presumably no charges against the actual killers – TLK] (11/13/18)

“A Republican senator from Mississippi is facing criticism for a joke she made about lynching. Cindy Hyde-Smith was filmed praising a cattle rancher, saying: ‘If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.’ She is facing a run-off later this month against a black Democrat in a state with a history of race killings. Her opponent, Mike Espy, called the comment ‘reprehensible’ but she says the reaction has been overblown. The video was published on Twitter on Sunday by a Mississippi blogger, and showed Ms Hyde-Smith meeting supporters. No other context for the comment was offered in the clip.” (11/12/18)

“The number of people [abducted and held] by Immigration and Customs Enforcement has hit an all-time high, according to recent statistics reviewed by The Daily Beast. That massive increase in [kidnapping victims kept in cages] by the highly controversial agency has prompted questions from rights groups about how Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) obtained the money to place into its custody 4,000 more people than Congress has funded. … ICE recently reported to Congress that, as of October 20, its average daily population in [cages] had reached 44,631 people. The figure is not classified, but it has not been made available to the public. A congressional office confirmed it to The Daily Beast.” (11/12/18)

10) WI: Male students at (almost) all-white high school gave Nazi salute

“A photo posted on social media of dozens of Wisconsin high school students giving a Nazi salute has drawn condemnation from the school district. Tweets say the photo shows all the males in the Baraboo (WIsconsin) High School class of 2019 at the city’s only public high school. Some students also are believed to be giving a white power salute. A tweet from a now-deleted account includes this message: ‘We even got the black kid to throw it up,’ according to a screenshot from Carly Sidey of Baraboo. Sidey decided Monday to make her tweets available only to followers. The photo appears to have been taken during the school’s junior class prom in the spring when photographer Pete Gust of Wheel Memories in Baraboo asked for separate photos of the boys and the girls in the Class of 2019, according to information from Jules Suzdaltsev, a New York-based journalist for Prompt News Online in Abuja, Nigeria, who first publicized the incident early Monday.” (11/12/18)

Corsi could face any number of charges — spanning from perjury to making false claims to obstruction of justice.” [editor’s note: Stone and Corsi are the kinds of guys who are hard to feel sorry for, in part because “making false claims” is the most concise and accurate career summary either one merits. But that’s presumably also why Mueller is going after them — he won’t have to work to prove they’re lying sacks of crap, because that was never in question – TLK] (11/12/18)

12) ME: New way of voting faces test in congressional district
Source: San Francisco Chronicle

“The election drew to a close last week in most places but not in fishing villages, potato farms and vast tracts of wilderness that comprise Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. The four-way political battle won’t conclude until a computer algorithm has the final say this week on whether Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin wins re-election or is ousted by Democratic state lawmaker Jared Golden. The new way of voting in which all candidates are ranked on a ballot made its national debut in U.S. House and Senate races in Maine. Under the system, a candidate wins with a majority of first-place votes. If there’s no majority, the last-place candidate’s second-place votes are reallocated to remaining candidates. The computerized process can be repeated until there’s a winner. Across the country, voting reform advocates are watching as the system faces its biggest test in the most expensive race in Maine history.” (11/12/18)

“Canada is in discussions with Pakistan about granting asylum to a Pakistani Christian woman recently acquitted of blasphemy, according to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Asia Bibi spent eight years on death row before a Pakistani court overturned her sentence and she was freed. Her release sparked violent protests from Islamists in the country. Mr Trudeau confirmed to the AFP news agency that his government was looking into bringing her to Canada. ‘There is a delicate domestic context that we respect which is why I don’t want to say any more about that, but I will remind people Canada is a welcoming country,’ he told AFP in an interview on Monday while in Paris for a conference. Asia Bibi’s husband has said the family is in danger and has pleaded for asylum from the UK, US or Canada. Her lawyer, Saiful Malook, has been granted temporary asylum in the Netherlands after facing death threats.” (11/12/18)

“Conservative policy magazine The Weekly Standard on Saturday posted audio of Iowa Rep. Steve King (R) using derogatory language to apparently refer to Mexican immigrants at a campaign event after King and his campaign denied the comments were made. In the audio, the Iowa congressman can be heard joking with a constituent about importing ‘dirt’ from Mexico, which appears to be a derogatory reference to immigrants coming from Mexico and other Central American countries through the U.S.’s southern border. … The Iowa congressman’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill on the remarks. King and his campaign previously denied the existence of the audio, daring the magazine to post it in a series of Twitter posts.” (11/10/18)

“Kim Davis, the Kentucky official jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, lost her re-election as Rowan county clerk last week. But she may perhaps have a higher calling: Christian ministry. Her lawyer, Mat Staver, appeared Thursday on ‘Crosstalk,’ a conservative radio program, discussing his client’s future. Staver co-wrote a book with Davis and said he’s spoken with her ‘quite a bit’ through the summer. ‘Frankly, I think what she’s going to do and where she’s been wanting to go is in some form of ministry,’ Staver said. ‘And so I think that’s where the Lord is leading her at this time.’ Davis cited ‘God’s authority’ for refusing to comply with the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling in 2015, spending five days in jail for ignoring court orders to issue same-sex licenses. Thousands of supporters cheered Davis when she exited the jail after serving her time, including Mike Huckabee, who wrote the foreword to her autobiography, Under God’s Authority: The Kim Davis Story. Davis eventually went on to meet Pope Francis.” (11/12/18)

“A scrappy American rocket startup just set the bar in the red-hot market for companies that launch small satellites. Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket launched six small satellites — or smallsats — into a low-Earth orbit Sunday from New Zealand. It’s the second time company’s rocket, which is less than 60 feet tall, has done that. Rocket Lab’s rivals have not yet pulled off an orbital launch, which means it is at the front of an increasingly crowded pack of rocket startups that want to launch smallsats for businesses and researchers.” (11/11/18)

Outgoing Republican Gov. Scott Walker drew plenty of criticism over how he handled the Department of Corrections.

Source: The Verge

“Alibaba’s 10th annual Singles Day sale, which took place yesterday on 11/11, racked up $30.8 billion in sales and set a new record for the platform, reports CNBC. The figure represents a 27 percent year-on-year rise over 2017’s total of $25.3 billion, and was helped in part by the e-commerce giant’s expansion into in-store retail, combined with China’s large and tech-savvy middle class. The figure dwarfs the revenue taken during similar major shopping days of US retailers. Amazon’s Prime Day sale in July, the retailer’s biggest day of the year, is estimated to have generated around $4 billion in sales (although Amazon doesn’t report exact numbers), selling 100 million items across the 17 countries. … There’s also reason to be skeptical of these astronomical numbers. Alibaba’s reporting is based on gross merchandise value (or GMV), which Bloomberg argues is an unreliable metric that doesn’t seem to correlate with revenue.” (11/12/18)

22) When “America First” becomes negotiable

by Gil Barndollar

“Candidate Trump offered a radical break with the U.S. foreign policy establishment. He said was NATO obsolete and warned of the danger of a third world war with Russia. He rightly declared the Libyan intervention to be another fiasco, and an illegal one at that. Hillary Clinton, by comparison, bragged about Muammar Gaddafi’s death and compared Vladimir Putin to Hitler. Foreign policy realists and restrainers were understandably receptive to a Trump presidency, warts and all. … Two years later, it is clear that ‘America First’ was negotiable. U.S. troops aren’t coming home, entangling alliances are expanding not contracting, and American client states are even more likely to drag us into war in the Middle East. When one pushes the media and the president’s personality out of view, the most remarkable thing about Trump’s foreign policy is how unremarkable it is.” (11/12/18)

“Immigration laws don’t merely allow discrimination; they require it. As the result, such laws are deeply anti-meritocratic. Employers may be allowed to hire the best citizen for the job, but not the best person. Even more strikingly, the injustice ripples down through the generations. When you trap a foreign-born father in a Third World country, you don’t just stunt his prospects; you stunt his children’s prospects as well. Indeed, this physical and mental stunting is often plain as day. These truisms came firmly to my mind when I recently re-read the title essay of Thomas Sowell’s Compassion Versus Guilt …” (11/12/18)

26) The decline of Sears: A tragic tale, or just progress?
Source: Investor’s Business Daily
by Chris Talgo

“After years of plummeting revenue and hundreds of store closures, Sears Holdings Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on October 15. Sears, once a pioneering force in retail, has not turned a profit in seven years. Ironically, Sears’ rapid rise to the retail apex and sudden slip into insolvency can be attributed to the same economic force: creative destruction. According to economist Joseph Schumpeter, creative destruction is the ‘process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.’ In other words, in the world of business, you either evolve or you go the way of the dinosaurs. Once upon a time, Sears epitomized the former. In 1892, Richard Warren Sears and Alvah C. Roebuck established Sears, Roebuck, and Company, a mail-order firm that completely transformed commerce. Before Sears, most Americans could only buy (or trade for) a small array of products at their local general stores. Needless to say, Americans lacked convenient access to a wide assortment of goods and services.” (11/12/18)

His health is failing. He is being denied medical care. His efforts for legal redress have been crippled by the gag rules, including Ecuadorian orders that he cannot make public his conditions inside the embassy in fighting revocation of his Ecuadorian citizenship. … Assange was once feted and courted by some of the largest media organizations in the world, including The New York Times and The Guardian, for the information he possessed. But once his trove of material documenting U.S. war crimes, much of it provided by Chelsea Manning, was published by these media outlets he was pushed aside and demonized.

28) How the centralized media lost its power over the people
Source: Foundation for Economic Education
by Max Borders

“In the 1990s, hierarchical media organizations started to falter. A series of events began to reveal the cracks, and one might argue that the 20th-century apparatus of collective intelligence began its decline sometime between dial-up modems and the election of Donald Trump. The 2016 election was perhaps the first time the Blue Church media apparatus was in full-throated support of one politician and against another. And yet it failed. Hillary Clinton was a well-funded establishment politician running against a loutish outsider. According to Greenhall, however, Clinton’s opponents executed a digital insurgency to ignite what he refers to as the ‘Red Religion,’ a populist movement with retrograde ideas and sophisticated communications tools. The Blue Church was neutralized. The media had fundamentally changed.” (11/12/18)

“There is nothing libertarian or free-market about the government’s forcing Americans to invest a portion of their paychecks in a business that manages pension funds. That is because there is nothing libertarian or free-market about the government’s forcing Americans to do anything. If the government should force Americans to save for retirement, then why shouldn’t it force them to save for houses, medical expenses, new cars, college, vacations, new iPhones, or Christmas presents?” (11/12/18)

“The Midterms don’t mean that Trump is triumphant and in control, any more than they mean the Democrats are riding an unstoppable wave to the White House. Instead they suggest that nobody has a firm grip on American politics — and that both the Republican and Democratic parties are in a perilously shaky state of decay.” (11/12/18)

Source: Cafe Hayek
by Don Boudreaux

“Mr. Walser: This letter is a response to your comment on a blog post in which I argue that producers, including workers, have no property rights in the sales that they make to consumers. You wrote that you ‘imagine that if such a foreign power [that is, a government] targeted George Mason and came to our shores and built a beautiful new campus, hired prominent and learned professors and then started offering tuition far below GMU’s ability to match you might see things differently.’ You’re mistaken. Begin by recognizing that ‘foreign powers’ on our shores frequently build beautiful new campuses, hire prominent professors, and charge tuition lower than is charged by GMU. We call these powers ‘state governments’ …. Whenever Maryland, Ohio, and other of these ‘powers’ open new — or expand existing — state universities and (as is not uncommon) charge tuition lower than is charged by GMU, fewer students than otherwise enroll at GMU. And yet I never complain about these state subsidies artificially reducing the demand for the services of GMU professors.” (11/12/18)

Source: Our Future

“The 2018 Midterm election, the 2016 Presidential election and the confirmation of the lifetime appointment of two extreme right-wing Supreme Court by Senators representing a minority of the people raises the question of whether ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’ is in the process of perishing, if not from the earth, then from the United States of America. Trump and McConnell are celebrating their increased majority in the Senate, although Democrats won the raw popular vote by over 15 percent, with 45,884 million voters (56.8 percent of the electorate) supporting Democratic Senate candidates, and 33 million, or 41.6 percent of voters, supporting Republican candidates, according to the latest New York Times tallies.” [editor’s note: One more time folks; this is NOT a democracy, and it never was meant to be one, to be ruled only by the big city mobs! – SAT] (11/12/18)

“Did the world’s smartest company really need 13 months, and applications from 238 cities, to reach the striking conclusion that it should invest in New York and D.C.? The former is America’s heart of capital, and the latter is America’s literal capital, where chief executive Jeff Bezos already owns a house and a newspaper. Was this national auction nothing more than a scripted drama to raise the value of the inevitable winning bid? And did the retailer miss an opportunity to revitalize a midwestern city by choosing to enrich the already-rich east coast? All good questions. But here’s the big one: Why the hell are U.S. cities spending tens of billions of dollars to steal jobs from each other, in the first place?” (11/12/18)

“What Jon Snow, the Channel 4 broadcaster (on English television), wisely discerned as ‘poppy fascism’ several years ago, reached its crescendo this weekend — as it does every year now it seems, with more vitality. However, this year, 2018, being the centenary of the Armistice of World War I, the crescendo’s pitch felt louder than usual. As, mid-week, I watched Sky News Live on YouTube from my Philadelphia apartment, a seemingly unwitting child appeared on my screen and announced the importance of passing down the ‘knowledge’ of the First World War from those who had gone before him.” (11/12/18)

“The cry babying, conspiracy mongering and outright character assassination continues as Democrat Kyrsten Sinema inches closer to becoming the first woman to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate. It wasn’t so surprising when President Donald Trump on Friday proclaimed Arizona’s election corrupt and called for a redo, even as half a million votes were still to be counted. We’ve come to expect it from old slash and burn, who’s been crying ‘fraud!’ and ‘fake news!’ ever since he lost the popular vote in 2016.

“Has the government declared war on trans people? That’s the million dollar question and its one I still don’t have a clear answer to. As some of you may already know, several weeks ago a memo being circulated by the Department of Health and Human Services was leaked exposing a plan by the Trump administration in league with their supposed enemies in the Deep State to officially establish gender as being defined exclusively by ones genitalia at birth. This would essentially erase people like me and leave us at the mercy of a bevy of bureaucratic tyrants from the prison industrial complex to its child abusing cousins in the tenured snake pits of the public school system. When I first heard about the memo, released by the New York Times, I was skeptical for a number of reasons, most of them having to do with the foul circus of the midterms.” (11/12/18)

“When I was young, I was an idealist. Well, who isn’t an idealist in adolescence? But later I came to see ideals mainly as the launching pad for hypocrisy. When I was older, I stood on principles like a rock. But older still, I see principles as things to measure against so you’ll be honest with yourself when life compels (or entices) you to violate them. I’m imperfect. Let me make a wild guess that you are, too. And it often seems as if our degree of imperfection is in inverse proportion to our degree of high-falutinness.

41) Global leaders must adapt to Trump’s post-midterm world
Source: Reuters
by Peter Apps

“For Donald Trump’s first foreign trip since Americans voted in the midterm elections, the bleak weather in Paris appears to have matched the diplomatic mood. The U.S. president seemed subdued during his visit to mark the centenary of the truce that ended World War One, and insulted many Europeans when rain and traffic were cited as the reason for cancelling one of his visits to an American war cemetery. Trump’s mood may have reflected his irritation at his Republican Party’s loss of control of the House of Representatives during the Nov. 6 congressional vote. However, Republican gains in the Senate, along with the lack of an obvious Democratic frontrunner to challenge him (at least for now) underscores the fact that the rest of the world has to accept that he might be re-elected in 2020. For leaders in Europe and beyond, that means planning for an ongoing world without wholehearted U.S. support, as well as a series of perhaps evermore tetchy meetings with a president where all sides find it ever harder to conceal any mutual loathing. ” (11/12/18)

Source: The New Republic
by Emily Atkin

“On Friday afternoon, as several counties across California were being incinerated by late-season wildfires, President Donald Trump signed a declaration providing federal money for the emergency response. But the president clearly wasn’t happy about it. About 10 hours later, he made a threat: If California goes up in flames like this again, he might just let it burn. At the very moment Trump sent his Saturday morning tweet, the Camp Fire in Butte County was actively burning homes to the ground, and the 27,000 residents of Paradise, California were only beginning to take stock of their massive losses. Mere hours beforehand, thousands were fleeing the city in panic, many abandoning their cars and running through the woods to escape the rapidly-encroaching heat and suffocating smoke. Several people died. By Monday, the Camp Fire had become the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in state history.” (11/12/18)

45) Trump’s tariffs are an appallingly inefficient method of raising tax revenue
Source: Continental Telegraph
by Tim Worstall

“President Donald Trump is hailing the money pouring into the Treasury from those import tariffs that have been imposed upon those things we all like to buy from foreigners. Confident claims that this will pay off the national debt and all that. There are three problems with this sort of claim. The first is that the people paying the tariffs are American consumers, the price of things they buy has risen as a result of the taxes. The second is that the sums under consideration are immaterial as far as the national debt is concerned, don’t even make a notable dent in the budget deficit. We’d not even consider the revenue a rounding error as concerns the first. The third is that they’re, whatever we might think of the above, an appallingly inefficient method of gaining tax revenue. The costs to the people are vastly higher than the revenues received which is not a marker of good taxation policy.” (11/11/18)

46) What the word liberalism means, if anything
Source: American Institute for Economic Research
by Jeffrey A Tucker

“I’ve spent my last days utterly enraptured with a fantastic new book that casts new light on a personal obsession: the history of the word liberalism. The book is The Lost History of Liberalism by Helena Rosenblatt, professor at CUNY. The sole focus of this work concerns historical etymology. When did the word liberal come along, how was it employed, and what did it mean to those who either embraced or demonized it? So far as I know, this is the first extended study with this focus in mind. The roots of the word liberalism are ancient (from the Latin liber meaning both free and generous) but the notion of universal freedom was completely unknown. Its use as a political designation traces only to early 19th-century France.” (11/11/18)

47) Q&A: Vietnam and the Road to Disaster
Source: The American Prospect
by Gabrielle Gurley

“Equipped with fresh insights from the fields of cognitive science and psychology, Brian VanDeMark’s Road to Disaster: A New History of America’s Descent Into Vietnam examines how Lyndon Johnson and his Vietnam advisors, ‘best and the brightest,’ as David Halberstam’s famously called them in seminal work, unspooled the decisions that cost the lives of more than 58,000 Americans. VanDeMark, an associate professor of history at the U.S. Naval Academy, has taught courses on the Vietnam War for nearly 30 years. As a young historian, he assisted Robert McNamara, Lyndon Johnson’s Secretary of Defense, with his controversial 1995 memoir on the war and got to know other senior advisors like Clark Clifford, McNamara’s successor. After Vietnam, Americans embraced a less jaundiced view of veterans and military service, but VanDeMark also tells The American Prospect that the contemporary polarization that now runs deep in America can be traced back to the stateside backlash against the war. This conversation has been edited and condensed.” (11/12/18)

“Following the 2018 general elections, the LP headquarters sent out this missive: ‘Libertarian candidates move Republicans and Democrats in a Libertarian direction’ …. The candidates play lip service to libertarian principles IN THEIR CAMPAIGN. They don’t actually DO anything to address issues in a way that promotes freedom, except by accident. And I have no doubt that this year will be no different than past years. The winning candidates that take office will NOT in any meaningful way take principled positions and actions which support restoration of liberty, and more freedom. Indeed, those who came closest to losing because a Libertarian candidate ‘spoiled’ the election will double down on ways to neuter the LP (and any other parties except the two old ones).” (11/11/18)

“Let’s be blunt: the 117,466 U.S. soldiers who died in World War I died for nothing. No one can deny that. In fact, that might well be the reason why interventionists changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. They wanted Americans to stop thinking about the fact that all those American soldiers in World War I died for nothing. After the war was over, the American people knew that those soldiers had died for nothing. That’s why they were overwhelmingly opposed to the U.S. entering World War II. They had had enough of foreign interventionism. After losing 117,466 soldiers for nothing in a foreign war in Europe, the last thing they wanted was to go through the entire experience again.” (11/12/18)
