Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Brennan Fracas Could Rip Through Senate's Defense Spending Debate
Senators have only agreed so far to vote on two relatively uncontroversial amendments to the the two-bill package that includes both the $675 billion Defense bill and the $179.3 billion Labor-HHS-Education measure. Those first two votes are scheduled for Monday evening.

On the horizon, though, are potential fights over President Donald Trump's [1] termination of others' security clearances, [2] U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, [3] procurement of warships that were not part of Trump's massive Pentagon budget request, questions about winners and losers in the creation of [4] a new Army command and, not least, [5] federal funding for abortions.

eradicating checks and balances is kind of an innovation in "national security" policy formulation, if one ignores about 2,000 years of european history.

Wow. That Patriot Act really got the wheels spinning in mud though, huh?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
