The Nanny State in excelsis, waging war on people’s private pleasures and freedoms. The “chief nanny” has form. In 2016, she declared that there is no safe limit on the amount of alcohol that can be drunk.

It also suggests the investigation into the payments has continued into recent … [Read more...] about FBI agents said to be probing Cohen’s deal with Korean firm
