In my opinion, neither Hillary or any other experienced candidate will actually do anything to get Russia to lob nukes at us. But the fact what do these new Outsider Candidates think is the problem.

And, like the frenzied war fever of 2002-2003, today’s lawless consensus is operating on a mix of selective, dubious and false information –…
