As Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Institute astutely points out:
The House and Senate passed "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act" now goes to President Trump's desk, where he faces a damned if he does and damned if he doesn't scenario. A veto would certainly be over-ridden, handing the president a bitter bi-partisan blow that would likely end whatever aspirations he may retain to keep his campaign promises to get along better with Russia. Similarly, signing the bill signs a death warrant for any foreign policy different than the one served up by the neocons for decades: create enemies; push war propaganda; collect massive checks from military industrial complex; demonize any American refusing to go along; repeat, adding bombs as necessary.
Along with the fiasco going on with Jeff Sessions and the whole Russia collusion bullshit (in CNN's own words) the deep state seems like it may be too powerful for Trump to uproot. All that's left now is to take take a page from Constantine's playbook and do to the deep state what was done to the Praetorian.
