    Trump and May blowing smoke sounded good today:


    Theresa May did not sound so good yesterday. In fact she was downright scary:

    Mrs. May began her speech at the Republican Retreat in Philadelphia with a brief history of Anglo-American relations, invoking the spirit of the Founding Fathers of the U.S. as well as expressing gratitude towards America’s involvement in the World Wars of the 20th century.

    But her speech was also littered with politically correct terms, as well as left and centre-left talking points regarding international institutions, Islam, and radical Islamic terrorism, the latter of which she called “Islamist extremism”.

    The British premier compared “open, liberal and democratic” societies in the West versus “closed, coercive” ones. She hailed the United Nations, praised the World Bank, and called NATO “the cornerstone” of Western defence.

    And Mrs. May also spoke of the necessity for multilateralism in stark contrast with the line pushed by the White House — which prefers bilateralism — over recent days. She cited the need to tackle “climate change” as one of the reasons to back globalist institutions.

    I will give President Trump a pass and assume he is too smart to fall in with May’s obvious admiration for the United Nations. The question is: How much support will May and the Socialist UK provide when H.R. 193 passes?

    Idiom: You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

    The Guardian, a British newspaper, jumped into the controversy, reporting that “U.S. allies have reacted with a mix of alarm and skepticism.” An unnamed “senior European diplomat” said: “It would potentially be brutal.” I hope you’re not so cynical as to think that unnamed senior European diplomats throw such terms around lightly.​

    Putting a price tag on the United Nations

    I have one complaint with Clifford May’s informative article. You cannot make a diamond out of a sow’s turd:
