Faux Populists Shill for the Permanent War State

In 2018, the Pentagon announced a shift away from their failing policy of counterterrorism in the Middle East and North Africa toward a new National Defense Strategy of so called “Great Power Competition,” with Russia and China.

It would impoverish the very people who desire genuine populism.

But bribery laws prohibit explicitly predicating donations or other gifts of value to the granting of a pardon.
