Well I am not as pompous as you poor man [...]
Well I am not as pompous as you
Another example of pomposity nationalistic keech.
According all international analysts [...]
When you refer to "all" you only mean all those you agree with you...
Who the hell are you, Belfrager? A citizen of Portugal. Anything else?Do tell!
I suppose this qualifies... (Arithmetic doesn't seem to taught anymore. It's still the "first hundred days" for most Democrats; it will stay that way for years! Most leftists in Europe -have we any posters from anywhere else that the U.S., Europe and Great Britain? [Sorry, Broohaha, I didn't mean to sleight Brazil...] They agree with "the Opposition" here in the States: Trump must go!President Trump has decided to take the U.S. out of the Paris Accord (on climate change...). The Paris Accord is a typical EU slight of hand move: Capitalism -- Bad! America -- Bad! Western civilization and progress -- Bad!
Opinion among White House advisers reportedly is split: [...] Ivanka wants to stay [in the Paris Accord], and so does Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
Is the Paris agreement a treaty? It wouldn't be unreasonable to say that it is, nor would it be unreasonable to say that it isn't. I would tend to the latter. It is an agreement within an existing framework, which the US has already joined. It's a statement of intent, non-binding commitments.
As usual you're completely out of scope my dear JaxParis treaty is simply a civilizational landmark. The most advanced and inclusive one, a step for humankind.It's not everyday that the Pope publishes an encyclica about it, "Laudate Si" - the Earth as our common House.Trump's decision should be rewarded with the American tradition of applying the "law of Lynch".As Macron said, "Let's make Earth great again"...
What the US does can still be very damaging (minimal benefits now, long tail of costs), but seen long-term I think Trump is sowing seeds of self-destruction.
President Trump is expected to announce today that the United States will not be party to the Paris agreement on climate change. What he should say is that the United States never properly joined the accord: It is a treaty that requires the advice and consent of the Senate. Instead, President Barack Obama choose to "adopt" it with an executive order last September.Some scholars have gone so far as to argue that the Paris agreement represents an exotic and previously unidentified species of international deal that does not have to be treated as a treaty. But even in this view, if Obama was within his rights to treat it as a non-treaty, Trump would be entirely within his executive rights to interpret it differently -- as a treaty requiring Senate consent, which has not even been sought yet.Some argue that even if Trump's non-acceptance of obligations under the agreement would be consistent with the Constitution, it would be a breach of an international obligation and weaken foreign trust in U.S. commitments. Yet foreign countries are in no place to complain if the United States insists on treating the agreement as a treaty requiring submission to the legislature -- because that is exactly how they have treated it themselves.Indeed, the real U.S. exceptionalism would be not in Trump's action, but in Obama's - in not seeking ratification.
American exceptionalism is one of three related ideas. The first is that the history of the United States is inherently different from that of other nations. In this view, American exceptionalism stems from the American Revolution, becoming what political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called "the first new nation" and developing the uniquely American ideology of "Americanism", based on liberty, egalitarianism, individualism, republicanism, democracy, and laissez-faire economics. This ideology itself is often referred to as "American exceptionalism." Second is the idea that the U.S. has a unique mission to transform the world. Abraham Lincoln stated in the Gettysburg address (1863), that Americans have a duty to ensure that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Third is the sense that the United States' history and mission gives it a superiority over other nations.
A weasel word, or anonymous authority, is an informal term for words and phrases aimed at creating an impression that a specific or meaningful statement has been made, when instead only a vague or ambiguous claim has actually been communicated.
