Finding Pearls of Wisdom in The Donald’s Trumperbolic Campaign

Donald TrumpI’ve just received an interesting query from Mingo, a long-standing European journalist friend and expert on all-things-Afghan… someone whose acquaintanceship dates back to the early days of America’s involvement in Afghanistan. Someone, I might add, who did prove to have in 2004 a clearer vision of what was to happen in that country than most, if not all, military experts, media gurus and politicians in the US. My writings at that time can attest to that.

The Nuclear Challenge: Fukushima and Beyond

The terrifying nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011 associated with the reactor meltdowns, hydrogen explosion, and release of radioactivity at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor complex was an anguishing complement to the awful collective memories of the Japanese people arising from the atomic attacks seven decades ago. We can only wonder about the lingering effects on the Japanese national...

Iran Nuclear Accord: Beware the False-Flag Op

If, as it seems, the enemies of a settlement with Iran will fail to prevent it, then the next question is, “Might they be able later on to force its failure?” The answer, clearly, is “Yes.” Any number of political factions on both sides will be tempted, so it will be essential that Washington prepare itself.

How the Free Market Killed New Orleans

by Michael Parenti

The free market played a crucial role in the 2005 destruction of New Orleans and the death of thousands of its residents. Forewarned that a momentous category 5 hurricane might hit that city and surrounding areas, what did officials do? They played the free market. They announced that everyone should evacuate.

The Molten Three

I must admit that Moshe ”Bogie" Ya'alon did not top the list of my favorite politicians.

Israel, you must be so embarrassed

Israel, things are not going well for you
by Amer Zahr

It’s been 67 years. You’ve tried everything. And we’re still here. It must be so frustrating. And when I say “everything,” I really mean everything. You’ve tried denying us employment, housing, voting rights, mobility, and education. You’ve tried just flat-out killing us. You’ve even tried...

How About Closed Borders Between the States?

Here is an idea to consider, based on the protectionist and anti-immigration positions held by leading GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and many of his fellow conservatives: Let’s end the system of open borders between the respective states of the Union and impose the same type of controlled system of trade and immigration that Trump favors for America’s international...

This picture captures a live spectacle of tyranny. I don't know who took this picture. Defying customs, the owner has not scribbled his or her identity on the picture. It appears the owner published this picture as a piece of charity for the world to see oppression.

Who says popular quest for change has been quelled?

by James M. Dorsey

A series of recent mass protests in several Arab countries have called into question suggestions that civil wars, brutal crackdowns and military coups and interventions have quelled popular willingness to stand up for rights in the Middle East.
