America No Longer a Force for Good?

Suggesting it ever was defies reality – a nation at war at home and abroad throughout its history, exterminating its native people, waging endless wars of aggression against nations threatening no one. Susan Rice was Obama’s UN envoy from January 2009 – June 2013, then as national security advisor from July 2013 through January 20, 2017. Earlier she was Clinton’s assistant secretary of state for African affairs. In this ...Read full article...

Trump stands to Gain Big Time on Newly Approved Tax Cuts

Trump will personally save up to $15 million. Jared Kushner will save up to $12 million. David Stockman minced no words, calling the measure “a fiscal, economic and political monster…hands down the worst tax bill enacted in the last half-century.” On Wednesday, Trump practically admitted it’s no “middle-class miracle,” saying slashing the corporate tax rate from 35 – 21% was “probably the biggest factor in our plan,” exposing GOP Big ...Read full article...

Is Trump imposing his Extreme Ideological Agenda?

Censorship should never be tolerated, not even if it is related to the use of a few words and regardless of whether it comes from Trump or anyone else. Lately, enforcers of political correctness have attempted to censor people´s free speech because using some words may be offensive to some people. Political correctness, as John Carlin once said is the newest form of intolerance, or as Charlton Heston said, ...Read full article...

No Thanks for Thanksgiving Under Trump

One year after Trump took office, most US workers struggle to get by on part-time or temp jobs paying poverty wages. One day there may be reason to give thanks. How can there be now with endless US wars raging, force-fed austerity on ordinary Americans, poverty the nation’s leading growth industry, real unemployment at Depression-era levels, police state laws destroying fundamental freedoms, and governance of, by and for the ...Read full article...

Que la Izquierda descanse en Paz

Érase una vez que la Izquierda del espectro político que estaba comprometida con el avance de la clase trabajadora y su protección contra el abuso político y económico por parte de los dueños de los medios de producción. En consecuencia, la Izquierda era políticamente poderosa y alcanzó un pináculo de poder cuando Henry Wallace fue seleccionado por Franklin D. Roosevelt como su tercer vicepresidente del mandato. A pesar de ...Read full article...

Washington Corruption Is Unparalleled In History

Dr. George Szamuely, a distinguished member of the Global Policy Institute of London Metropolitan University, is a British citizen and not a partisan of US politics. He has carefully investigated the so-called Russian dossier and reports that it was entirely the work of the Hillary Democrats. This fact was known at the beginning both to former CIA director John Brennan and to former FBI director James Comey. Yet both ...Read full article...

Washington Has Initiated Military Conflict With Russia

Russia has provided evidence that Washington is collaborating with ISIS in attacks on Russian forces. In one Washington-directed attack, ISIS tried to capture 29 Russian military policemen. However, Russian special forces entered the fray, and the result was spectacular losses for ISIS. In another attack Washington-directed attack, Russian General Valery Asapov and two Russian colonels were killed in an attack that violated agreements. Sooner or later it will dawn ...Read full article...

Whatever Happened to America?

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and destroy our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed them ourselves.  – Abraham Lincoln Over the course of my lifetime America has become an infantile country. When I was born America was a nation. Today it is a diversity country in which various segments divided by race, gender, and sexual preference, preach hate toward other segments. Currently ...Read full article...

America, the Nation I grew Up in, No Longer Exists

America was never beautiful, but the way things were during my early years was world’s different from today’s dismal and hugely dangerous state. Long ago, I felt safe and secure, unlike today, threatened by bipartisan lunatics in Washington, waging endless wars of aggression, deploring peace and stability, maybe willing to risk destroying planet earth to own it. As a child and youth, I never feared dreaded nuclear war. Today ...Read full article...

Deplorable Ignorance and Indifference of Most Americans

Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet – mostly know-nothings about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most. A new Gallup poll provides more evidence – 58% of respondents supporting war if peaceful methods with North Korea fail. Americans are so out-of-touch with reality they have no idea that the Trump administration ruled out dialogue with Pyongyang or why. They have no understanding of what nuclear war ...Read full article...

Harvey: An Epic Disaster, An Environmental Nightmare

Natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey are greatly exacerbated by America’s neglected infrastructure nationwide – a deplorable situation unaddressed by Republicans and undemocratic Democrats alike for decades. Poor maintenance, aging pipe networks installed up to a century ago, and lack of proper drainage facilities in flood-prone cities like Houston, New Orleans, and Chicago’s downtown Loop, along with poor communities in these and other cities left especially vulnerable, make disasters like ...Read full article...

Trump and Pakistani support for Jihadists

President Trump and his project to reorient US foreign and military policy from imperialism to cooperation is beginning to bear fruit.  Since his speeches in Riyadh and Brussels last May, almost all Muslim states (with the exception of Pakistan, Qatar, Sudan and Turkey) have ceased supporting the bevy of jihadist groups born of the Muslim Brotherhood. Simultaneously, NATO has made a 90-degree turn and has also begun to fight ...Read full article...

US Contempt for Rule of Law Principles

Republican and undemocratic Democrats flagrantly breach international, constitutional and US statute laws. They demand subservience from all other nations. They treat US citizens contemptuously. All independent countries are targeted for regime change. Washington wants them transformed into vassal states, naked aggression its favored strategy. America is permanently at war on humanity at home and abroad. Deplorable hostility toward Russia risks direct confrontation, the increasing possibility of unthinkable nuclear war, ...Read full article...

HR McMaster: Trump’s Ally or Enemy?

As National Security Advisor, he holds one of the top Trump administration positions, able to exert considerable influence on America’s geopolitical agenda. In April, investigative journalist Mike Cernovich accused him of “manipulating intelligence reports given to President Donald Trump,” adding: He’s “plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria,” complicit with retired general/disgraced former CIA director David Petraeus, wanting “150,000” US ground troops in Syria. He urged ...Read full article...

Witch Hunt for Donald Trump Surpasses the Salem Witch Trials

We should be scared to death that Sally Q. Yates served as a prosecutor in the Justice (sic) Department for 27 years. In the New York Times Sally takes high umbrage to Trump’s criticism of his attorney general, Sessions, and blows Trump’s disappointment with Sessions into an attack by Trump on the rule of law. Sally has it backwards. The rule of law is being attacked by the appointment ...Read full article...
