Thanks for Keeping Us Independent

I’ve been remiss.

I had plans to send out a thank you note to all the people who donated during our fundraiser. But then a family issue came up and I haven’t gotten it done yet.

Nevertheless, this piece of news made me realize I need to issue a heartfelt thank you immediately.

I am very excited to announce that tomorrow, we are launching a project with our friends at the New Republic to bring Lawfare content and writers to the New Republic‘s web site. Astute readers may have noticed that we have been sharing a certain amount of content with the New Republic over the past few weeks. The partnership aims to build on this relationship, situating Lawfare‘s expertise in national security legal issues within the New Republic‘s broader policy focus.

We are calling the project, which is being sponsored by the Northrup Grumman Corp., “Security States.” [my emphasis]

Some national security commentary gets sponsored by a drone manufacturers and spy companies (the announcement also led me to realize that Brookings itself gets $1 to $2.5 million a year from Booz h/t Katherine Hawkins).

Ours gets sponsored by you.

To all of you who help keep us independent, you have my profuse gratitude.

bmaz @dmataconis I mean, murder, assault, rape etc, absent a fed person victim are simply common law state crimes. Period.

bmaz @dmataconis Yep. Agree about Fed HC laws too. Unnecessary+just gives them path to bigfoot and steal jurisdiction from states where belongs.

bmaz @dmataconis I just object to relative valuation of different victims. Is crime really worse because defendant shouted an epithet?

bmaz @dmataconis Exactly. To extent its relative, mental state already in play in elements of underlying crime.

bmaz @dmataconis Note that the Supreme Court has heard my arguments+found hate crimes constitutional in their face. I am prob in minority here.

bmaz @dmataconis Also fairly leery of the 1st Amnd/thought crime aspects. The crime is the thing; mental state already an element for culpability

bmaz @dmataconis Because are often separate crimes, not merely sent. considerations. And still the issue are some victims inherently worth more?

emptywheel @SarahKnuckey Isn't an attack on KSA the same as an attack on the US?
