Niskanen Center

For those who don't think the Niskanen Center is a neocon center.

New York Times Magazine provides this enlightening information:

In the early days of the new [Trump] administration, [Bill] Kristol and other shellshocked conservatives around Washington started getting together to commiserate. One of the more regular meetings took place every other Tuesday morning, hosted by the Niskanen Center, a new libertarian think tank started by alumni of the Cato Institute. Hosted by Niskanen’s co-founder, Jerry Taylor, the meetings — which participants called “the Meeting of the Concerned” — were held in a conference room in the basement of the CNN building near Union Station...

The gatherings attracted a roster of right-of-center familiars: the columnists Mona Charen, David Frum and Jennifer Rubin; the former Oklahoma representative Mickey Edwards; and onetime Republican administration officials like Linda Chavez. They were invitation-only and off the record. 
That list, folks, is the entire neocon frontline.

  1. But, but, The TIMES says they're "conservatives". "Right of center". "Libertarians". It can't be cluelessness. It's gotta be a lot more sinister.
