Clinton II is “merely not Trump” nothing else.

This:

“For Mrs Clinton her ultimate political hero and role model, both as a person/politician/First Lady has been Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt wife of President Franklin Roosevelt and the longest serving First Lady in American history spanning the 1930s Great Depression, the rise of Nazi Germany and 1940s World War, from 1933 until the death of her husband shortly after his record breaking election to a fourth Presidential term in April 1945, just weeks before witnessing Victory in Europe with the defeat of the Nazis which the Roosevelt administration contributed a great deal to ensuring.”

doesn’t fit well with this:

SCOTT SIMON: I mean, did you ever back in the ’60s, between when — I believe you were a Goldwater girl —
HILLARY CLINTON: That’s right.
SCOTT SIMON: — and whenever you became politically –
HILLARY CLINTON: That’s right. And I feel like my political beliefs are rooted in the conservatism that I was raised with. I don’t recognize this new brand of Republicanism that is afoot now, which I consider to be very reactionary, not conservative in many respects. I am very proud that I was a Goldwater girl.

Until the UN can restrain the US, it has no standing to be heard on the issue. It’s to be recalled the US is the only government to use nukes on people.

Magoon and Yoo and “lawyers'” opinions

September 9, 2016 § Leave a comment

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Edward_Magoon

“By 1899, Magoon was sought out to join the law office of the newly created Division of Customs and Insular Affairs, later renamed the Bureau of Insular Affairs, in the U.S. Department of War under Secretary of War Russell A. Alger.

Legal and political controversy had arisen regarding whether the people of the newly acquired territories were automatically granted the same rights under the United States Constitution as American citizens. Magoon prepared a report to Alger in May 1899 that would have established the official departmental policy as “the Constitution follows the flag.”

Under this view, the moment the treaty transferring the territories to U.S. sovereignty was signed, the residents of Puerto Rico, the Philippines, and other territories became subject to all the rights granted by the Constitution. For the new territories following the Spanish–American War, this would have been from the signing of the Treaty of Paris on December 10, 1898. With the resignation of Secretary Alger, this incomplete report was not released to Congress.[4]

In August 1899, Elihu Root became the new secretary of war, and the unreleased report was scrapped. Magoon drafted a new report which came to precisely the opposite conclusion from the first: the Constitution did not apply in new territories until the United States Congress specifically passed legislation to authorize it. It argued that precedent was set when Congress passed legislation to apply the Constitution to the Northwest Territory and the Louisiana Purchase. This revised report was dated February 12, 1900, and released to Congress as a policy document expressing the Department’s official stance on the issue.[5] This view was largely adopted by the Supreme Court of the United States beginning in 1901 in the so-called “Insular Cases.””

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Yoo

He is best known for his opinions concerning the Geneva Conventions that attempted to legitimize the War on Terror by the United States. He also authored the so-called Torture Memos, which concerned the use of what the Central Intelligence Agency called enhanced interrogation techniques including waterboarding.

In 2009, two days after taking office, President Barack Obama in Executive Order 13491 repudiated and revoked all legal guidance on interrogation authored by Yoo and his successors in the Office of Legal Counsel between September 11, 2001, and January 20, 2009.[5][6]

“Peaceful” should have one basic meaning and then be applied…

One way to propagandize is to select the criteria for judging.

“There is a strong correlation between the level of support shown for the South China Sea arbitration, and a country’s level of corruption and strength of governance/rule of law, as measured by Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) and Freedom House’s Freedom in the World scores”

I wonder what would be the result if “a country’s level of military spending and/or number of attacks on other countries” were added in? basically the imperial NATO countries and the US.

or the countries with war criminals residing. the false implication here is the the “good citizens” of the world support arbitration but the definition of “good” is filled with holes.

Who Is Taking Sides After the South China Sea Ruling?

 

I’m not saying this very well right now.

Eighty percent of the families in the United States last year did not buy a book.

“The reception that President Obama and his staff got when they arrived here Saturday afternoon was bruising, even by Chinese standards,” the New York Times reported.

In a civilized world, they’d be handcuffed at the airport as the war criminals he and Rice are.
