People forget that the Spanish Civil War didn’t just happen out of the blue. The immediate trigger was quasi-official leftist paramilitaries assassinating Calvo Sotelo, who was the leader of the revolutionary right. And there was much build-up before that.
Arguably Mr. Hines’ own post is itself another omen, however slight.
The Committee is gratified by the response to Federal Constitution v2.0, Draft Revision 2. Public comments received to date have highlighted the need to publish a more extended rationale for Presidential Election Process v2.0 Draft 2.
Julia Yost has an unconventional and sympathetic interpretation of a film I never care to see.
