Chaos is the reason nobody can figure Trump out or predict his future actions. It’s chaos to everyone else but to Trump, it’s controlled chaos. Chaos is the reason our military, if left alone, does so well in battle and was recognized as such by our adversaries.
Alignment: Chaotic genius!
As it happens, I also agreed when Adams wrote yesterday that there was a possibility that the chemical attack was a rebel chemical strike on its own side for propaganda value. Nothing that comes out of that region can be considered true in the first instance, or even the second, third or fourth. Moreover, the actors in the Syrian civil war are all equally bad people, with neither side having compunction about attacking its own innocent civilians in order to score propaganda points. Regardless of the truth on the ground, though, Trump sent an important message.
If I’m not mistaken, both sides are Muslims. The Koran gives them permission to lie. The Truth is not in them.
3. Slow-down, or halt, in new international agreements. The writing has been on the wall for new international agreements ever since President Trump formally abandoned the Trans-Pacific Partnership on the third day of his presidency. A few days later a draft Executive Order, Moratorium on New Multilateral Treaties, leaked. The EO was only a draft, and it is limited to Article II treaties, which form only a sliver of U.S. international agreements. (It’s not clear if the Trump Team realizes that treaties are rare.)
An ‘agreement’ is a treaty if it is being treated as such. This Harvard lawyer’s argument proves that agreement are treaties, according to the Left.
[Trump said] ‘My job is not to represent the world, my job is to represent the United States of America’ — AND THE DEMOCRATS DID NOT APPLAUD. Just think about that for a moment. This simple sentence captures the heart of Trump’s appeal. And it is also the Achilles heel of the Democrats.
That’s not an immigration policy. It’s a hostage crisis.
