5. Iran has weapons of mass construction

6. Funny how everything is an emergency and crisis. But

SIMULTANEOUSLY he's the greatest most competent leader ever, and everything is so much better under him, since he's been in charge. He's done such a great job as leader, his leadership has been great and successful on every issue, on all fronts.

Also there are national and international emergencies and crises, everywhere, and he keeps having to declare them and grab unconstitutional extrajudicial power, or else he can't lead or do anything about any of them.

Schizo doublethink. Right in the open, in everybody's faces.
