Progressive Politics or idle geek banter. What's on my mind when I'm irked, intrigued, bored or up too late.

Boltonmania 2 - Cage Match

John Bolton – On why international law does not exist:

While treaties may well be politically or even morally binding, they are not legally obligatory. They are just not “law” as we apprehend the term. And what happens to countries when they do not adhere to international law on some matter? Usually nothing. Why, then, do we continue to talk about international “law”? Because the word has a strong emotive appeal.

The US Constitution

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

I will give credit to the Administration on one large point: They are absolutely fantastic at alienating our allies. John Bolton is particularly skilled.

You can get lots more info on Bolton and the possible nomination re-match battle from Steve Clemons over at HuffPo.

I'm not liberal, I'm just paying attention
