What would happen if Washington gave up on the jihad?

President Trump’s desire to fight Daesh and to put an end to international terrorism is going to be extremely difficult to implement. Indeed, it will cause damage to the states who organised it, and implies a reorientation of international politics. The new President of the United States does not seem ready to give his troops the order to attack until he has found and sealed new alliances. The opposition ...Read full article...

Washington’s Benevolent Mask Is Disintegrating

The few weeks of Trump’s presidency suffice to make clear that there will be no change this time either. Normal relations with Russia are on the back burner, if not off the stove. The material needs of the military/security complex for an enemy in order to justify its budget and police state powers, and the ideological needs of the neoconservatives for US world hegemony, are deemed to be more ...Read full article...

AG Jeff Sessions on the Carpet Over Nothing

It’s hard feeling sympathy for Jeff Sessions, a man with a history of racist opposition to equal rights and protections under the law for all Americans. Still, vilifying him for conversations he apparently had with Russia’s ambassador to America, Sergey Kislyak, during the presidential campaign when he was a US senator is way over-the-top and unjustified. He shouldn’t have been asked about it during confirmation hearings or other times. ...Read full article...

The Resurrection of Armageddon

“The U.S. intelligence community’s extraordinary campaign of leaks claiming improper ties between President Trump’s team and Russia seeks to ensure a lucrative New Cold War by blocking detente.” — Gareth Porter It only required 24 days for the Deep State to castrate President Donald Trump and terminate the promise that the high tensions with Russia created during the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes would be terminated by ...Read full article...

President Trump Walks the Walk on Illegal Immigration

No DACA recipients or people who have violated immigration laws will be deported as long as they have a clean record and are earning a living based on legal activities. WASHINGTON, D.C. – With 10,000 to 15,000 new border agents and a stop to the infamous catch and release policy, the US President has effectively begun to hunt down criminal illegal aliens. Donald Trump has opened the door to massive ...Read full article...

Deep State Power vs Trump

America’s deep state is divided on Trump. He couldn’t have been elected without enough support. Post-inauguration, things changed. The balance of power shifted against him, leaving him vulnerable, already weakened this early in his tenure, unprecedented for a US president. His record so far in office is another matter, though too soon to judge him definitively. Still, disturbing signs aren’t encouraging. More on this below. Jack Kennedy transformed himself ...Read full article...

The Trump Presidency: RIP

Has Donald Trump overestimated his presidential power? The answer is yes. Is Steve Bannon, Trump’s main advisor, politically inexperienced? The answer is yes. We can conclude from the answers to these two questions that Trump is in over his head and will pay a big price. How large will the price be? The New York Times reports that US “intelligence agencies…sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding ...Read full article...

Donald Trump: Business against War

Seeking to overthrow the Power that preceded him, which is still trying hang on despite him, President Trump cannot compose his administration by relying on the political class or on senior civil servants. He has therefore solicited new collaborators, entrepreneurs like himself, despite the risk that this confusion of rôle categories may entail. According to the Puritan ideology, which has been in fashion since the dissolution of the Soviet ...Read full article...

Who is Using the Press and the Judicial System Against Trump & Fillon?

How not to be struck by the resemblance between the campaigns aimed at shooting down Donald Trump and François Fillon? How can we fail to observe that these two men, with their very different personalities and ideologies, threaten the same interests? At the same time, very large press campaigns are developing in the Western world against both US President Donald Trump and, to a lesser extent, against French presidential ...Read full article...

Is The Trump Administration Already Over?

Hopes for the Trump administration are not burning brightly. Trump’s military chief, Gen. Mattis, is turning out to be true to his “mad dog” nickname. He has just declared that Iran “is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.” He has declared Russia to be the number one threat to the US. He has threatened intervention in China’s territorial affairs. I was wrong. I thought Gen. ...Read full article...

This is why the Left is so Scared of Judge Gorsuch

Democrats and Republicans agreed on one issue after the election: the most important thing at stake was the Supreme Court. The most prominent reason why Democrats, Liberals and other left-leaning people are so scared about confirming Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court is that he is the closest to an ‘originalist’ when interpreting the US Constitution. People who read his opinions and knows the way he thinks explain he won’t ...Read full article...

Donald Trump winds up “the” organization of US imperialism

Donald Trump has just undertaken the most important reform of the administrative structures in the United States for more than 69 years. He has just put an end to the imperial project and is reshaping his country into a State like any other. Update: (31 January 2017): in light of the indignant reactions on the part of the US ruling class, Donald Trump has announced through his spokesperson that this ...Read full article...

Neocons McCain and Graham v. Trump on Muslim Immigration Suspension

In office barely over a week, Trump’s full domestic and geopolitical agenda remains to unfold, despite a disturbing first few days warranting criticism. Russophobe, neocon, uber-hawk Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been around forever – in Congress since 1987 and 1995 respectively, urging one war of aggression after another. Both represent a clear and present danger to freedom. Below is their statement in response to Trump’s suspension ...Read full article...

The Demise of the Left

On several occasions I have asked in my columns the rhetorical question: What became of the left? Today I answer my question. The answer is that the European and American left, which traditionally stood for the working class and peace (bread and peace) no longer exists. The cause championed by those who pretend to be the “left” of today is identity politics.  The “left” no longer champions the working ...Read full article...

Donald Trump calls for Investigation on Voting Fraud

Mainstream corporate media asked for it as a challenge to the recently elected president, and now, Donald Trump has accepted the challenge. US President, Donald J. Trump announced via his Twitter account that he will call for an in-depth investigation into what he calls voting fraud and that depending on the results of such investigation, he may change electoral laws to strengthen voting safety. Trump called on Wednesday for ...Read full article...
