^ In US historical parlance, “federalism” has one meaning.
Sure, in general poli-sci parlance, it has a few meanings.
In propagandistic parlance, though, it has whatever meaning it needs to have.
The modern term “liberal” is a propagandistic substitute for the disgraced early-20thC term “Progressive.”
“Progressive” is now a substitute for the disgraced term “Liberal,” since hardly anybody knows what Progressivism was or that it had common roots with fascism and socialism.

I was evermore greatly dismayed until I read at the end of the article:
A Republican congressional staffer who served in the military told The Washington Times: “If [the Defense Department] is looking for places to cut spending, this junk study is ground zero.
“Shouldn’t the Combating Terrorism Center be combating radical Islam around the globe instead of perpetuating the left’s myth that right-wingers are terrorists?” the staffer said. “The $64,000 dollar question is when will the Combating Terrorism Center publish their study on real left-wing terrorists like the Animal Liberation Front, Earth Liberation Front, and the Weather Underground?”
I fully agree with that. At least someone out that way (unidentified in the story) has something useful between their ears.
The fuckers in that think tank need to be fired. They bring shame to West Point’s legacy.

I think it was around 4 years or so ago that I commented here on this very blog that the agenda of the left was going to be to slowly poison the mind of the public into believing that conservatives are terrorists.

Well, I haven’t shot anything for about … oh… 25-30 days now. And I’m running out of cats.
Theater is going on up on the Hill: Financial Cliffs, OH MY! Keep your eye on that ‘shiny object’. Meanwhile, all the writing of script is going in the “RATS’ nest as you say Doug. All the new regulations costing in the hundreds of Billions of Dollars.
While the spiritual Commie gets ready for another Inauguration where all the fluff from the Rainbows and Unicorns will be spouted America will once again wake up and find out the major butt f**king there’re in for. And your Prog Canon on the words is damn right on! Always was. Will always be.
these bastards know what the hell they’re doing! Sorry to have to say but they have planed their work are working their plan.
From their ‘Bible’ Alinsky:
In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace…. “Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.’ This means revolution.” p.3
“An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth — truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing…. To the extent that he is free from the shackles of dogma, he can respond to the realities of the widely different situations….” pp.10-11
“Change comes from power, and power comes from organization.” p.113
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
