Need new rules of engagement.
Next time, OVER-REACT badly.
Sink the ship, then any other Chinese naval vessel nearby, then maybe a Chinese commercial vessel nearby, then a fishing boat or two... THEN.. file a formal documented complaint about the original vessel's act.
Shouldn't happen again.
No Problem. Just AMEND the constitution.
Trump sent Mulvaney. The Chief of Staff isn't dispatched to scold, cajole, or suggest. They have ONE JOB enact directives provided him by the President over every department in the US government and they tend to NEVER leave the President's side or the White House executive office building in Washington DC.
The only conceivable purpose for dispatching him is severance. Complete absolute and irreversible severance. They'd have sent one of underlings otherwise.
Johnson is avoiding any meeting (if there is to be any) to avoid the appearance that he may have instigated what he must know is coming.
Pick multiple fights with Trump and you have to expect bad sh1t is just going to happen to you.
Lose a government contract? Sure. Lucky it wasn't also a random swarm of bees, a plague of locusts or a random d1ck pic leaked to the press from your phone....
I've been casually following AfD for a while. I'm a little confused as to why THEY are always characterized as "far right".
Ideologically, they seem pretty libertarian.
What supports the "far right" label?
Economy continues to rise. Trump get the credit and the Democrats claim it isn't happening.
Economy declines and Trump rightfully blames the Democrats and the Democrats fail to convincingly blame Trump for what they've been overtly trying to arrange for years.
That's at least 3D chess.
Trump has FL and OH pretty well out of reach of Democrats. Tough for any Dem to plot out a viable path to 270.
Most Americans -- aren't even watching the trial.
