Have you ever wondered how a political issue catches fire and dominates the news? Ever wondered why a particular set of "facts" acts as a corral on discussions?

Every American, regardless of their current political leanings, can learn something about real politics from Dr. J.Michael Waller. He is a man of the right and he is a man with experience. He has been in the trenches of real and political warfare since he was a young man.

He was in Nicaragua at the same time as a man who became the mayor of New York City. Waller was with the American-backed freedom fighters and Bill de  Blasio (actually that isn't his original name, but that is something for another day) was working with the Soviet and Cuban-backed Communist dictatorship. This isn't a game of cornhole, at least not for Waller.

Think Ernest Hemingway in the Spanish Civil War – if Hemingway wasn't on the side of the Soviets.

Dr. Waller is currently at the Center for Security Policy as its Senior Analyst for Strategy. He is a New Hampshire guy who earned his Ph.D. at Boston University. His expertise in propaganda and political warfare has been tapped by NATO and the Green Berets at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg. He is the President of Georgetown Research, a private political risk and intelligence company with a national reach based out of our nation's capital city.

Waller has been studying and reporting on the propaganda activities of the Kremlin, Communist China, and the Cuban dictatorship for decades. He knows who the treasonous players are inside the world of American politics. He knows who has been serving the interests of our foreign enemies inside the establishment. Some of his research papers and Congressional testimony can be read in full at this academic site.

If the work of J.Michael Waller is good enough for the Green Berets, it should be good enough for you.
