Hanging up the truck keys didn't seem quite right without a last article about it all on Ricochet. I found some stories that hadn't seen the light of day in 8 years and others that are more recent. I do hope you will enjoy the journey.
I'm about halfway through Jonah's book now, and agree strongly with this review an synopsis:
"Moving back to enhanced interrogation, it’s easy to imagine a very different kind of hearing than the one Haspel endured last week. Think of the hearing that would happen after a catastrophic terror strike that could have been averted through more dramatic interrogation measures. The architects of restraint would face thousands of bereaved families, each of them demanding to know why an interrogation technique (like waterboarding) — long used in training against our own soldiers — was deemed too brutal to use to avert catastrophe. The moral argument would look very different indeed." - David French
So, along with the new caricature comes a new opportunity to do a bit of merchandising. In addition to the Radio Deplorable swag on Ricochet, we now have a DaveCarterOnline store with just a few products up and more to come. Coffee mugs, t-shirts, notepads, and a poster,...all with quotes that have generated some positive responses in the past, and all in fun. Feel free to have a look!
Well this is interesting:
