    What does the last paragraph state Norm?

    Now you've done it. Here comes five pages of "discussion" on the definition of "last", "paragraph" and "state".
    If it pays, it stays

    It's so funny that a good strategy to move further then any other President has is criticized by the feckless left.

    If the United States determines, at its discretion and after consultation with Mexico, after 45 calendar days from the date of the issuance of the Joint Declaration, that the measures adopted by the Government of Mexico pursuant to the Joint Declaration have not sufficiently acheived results in addressing the flow of migrants to the southern border of the United States, the Government of Mexico will take all necessary steps under domestic law to bring the agreement into force with a view to ensuring that the agreement will enter into force within 45 days.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    You may remember (more clearly than I do, I hope) than when Obama came back with an embarrassing agreement about missiles with Russia, for example, we were told by the enabling media that we peasants can't possibly know what secret protocols His Wonderfulness has in his pocket. But you can bet they are tough! So tough they have to be secret!!

    I guess they're still secret.

    The closest thing I remember to such a secret protocol by Obama was the super secret night flight of bullion and untraceable bills to our BFFs the Iranians. We were told it was their money anyway, so quit your complaining. But if it was their money, and we shouldn't complain about it, why was it shipped in secret at night? Why not be open about it?

    That was then.

    Now, what's important is Trump Bad. He "bragged" he had a secret deal? Push out a WaPost op-ed titled, "Trump waves piece of paper to prove semi-imaginary agreement is real." Mexico said it wasn't true, and we know everybody tells the truth but our president.

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff, explaining the Green New Deal for the hard of hearing.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    Well that was back when the Democrats had to laugh Romney off the stage for talking about Russia being a threat. So Russia was good, reset button and all, then they were still good, "flexibility after the election" and then they were bad.

    Yeah - apparently it's "illegal" to wire money to Iran but it's not "illegal" to secretly fly them some cash. Of course there are a whole lot of drug cartel folks rotting in jail for secretly flying cash but eh.

    He's running rings around the adversaries and he's confirming how much of a lightweight Obama is. That really pisses the Boks of the world off.
