Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. A Tale of 3 Press Conferences

 

POTUS DIMEFILIf you watch and listen to three sets of statements and answers by our current administration, you will get an interesting picture of our actual current policy. The first is by President Trump, answering a reporter’s off-topic question when he signed two executive orders on transparency in federal guidance and enforcement (a serious push back on the growth of an unaccountable fourth branch of government in the administrative state). The second is a Pentagon briefing on the deployment of Patriot Air Defense/Anti Missile units and two Air Force fighter squadrons to Saudi Arabia, in which both this action and comments on Syria are interesting. The third is a White House press corps briefing by Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin.

President Trump has laid out three possible courses of action in the longstanding conflict between Turkey and those Kurds living in eastern Turkey and across the border in Syria. As has been explained repeatedly elsewhere, these are not the same Kurds abandoned by George H.W. Bush and now supported in northern Iraq by President Trump. These are different groups with different politics.

Ordinary people don’t often know (or appreciate) what can happen in the field when you’re in the military. Although I disagree with every political position someone like Senator Tammy Duckworth stands for, I kneel in prayer in support of her sacrifice. But here’s an ordinary Dan, and I must kneel for him too: http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2018/03/10/dan-cnossen-navy-seal-veteran-and-double-amputee-wins-paralympic-biathlon-gold.html More
