The New York Times is one of the best newspapers anywhere at figuring out how the subversive role of right wing think-tanks and the US Christian movements are changing American democracy. "The Trump team may not have been prepared to staff the government, but the Heritage Foundation was. In the summer of 2014, a year before Trump even declared his candidacy, the right-wing think tank had started assembling a 3,000-name searchable database of trusted movement conservatives from around the country who were eager to serve in a post-Obama government. The initiative was called the Project to Restore America, a dog-whistle appeal to the so-called silent majority that foreshadowed Trump’s own campaign slogan."
The Heritage Foundation: a nasty piece of work with a nasty aggressive right-wing agenda.
