Trump

“Liberal” European Elites for Authoritarianism and Cold War

In the aftermath of the November 8 US presidential election, sections of the Democratic Party, the intelligence services and the media have intensified unsubstantiated pre-election claims that the Russian government hacked into Democratic Party email servers to undermine the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Will Trump Channel Kissinger?

Niall Ferguson, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History at Harvard, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and biographer of Henry Kissinger returns to the show to discuss what a Kissinger-inspired foreign policy strategy might look like.

US-Israel: Α war between giants. Behind the settlers, on the role...

The adoption, by the Security Council of the United Nations, of a decision condemning Israel for allowing the colonization of occupied Palestinian lands has provoked a polemic of extreme and very rare violence, between Netanyahu and the US Administration.

The Dangerous Deception Called The Trump Presidency

The project called the Trump Presidency has just two months before its formal beginning. Yet already the hopes and fantasies of much of the world are making him into something and someone Donald Trump most definitely is not. Donald Trump is yet another project of the same boring old patriarchs who try again and again to create a one world order that they control absolutely, a New World Order that one close Trump backer once referred to as universal fascism.

The Bad Losers (And What They Fear Losing)

Terrified of what Trump may do, his opponents tend to ignore what the lame ducks are actually doing. The last gasp Clintonite campaign to blame Hillary’s defeat on “fake news”, supposedly inspired by The Enemy, Russia, is a facet of the growing drive to censor the Internet – previously for child pornography, or for anti-Semitism, and next on the pretext of combating “fake news”, meaning whatever goes contrary to the official line. This threat to freedom of expression is more sinister than eleven-year-old locker-room macho boasts by Trump.

The last, historic act by President Barack Obama: US lifting veto,...

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump tweeted Friday shortly after the UN Security Council voted in favor of an anti-settlement resolution allowed by an unprecedented U.S. abstention, saying, "As to the UN, things will be different after Jan. 20th."

It’s Worse Than You Think

Widespread social unrest will ignite when Donald Trump’s base realizes it has been betrayed. I do not know when this will happen. But that it will happen is certain. Investments in the stocks of the war industry, internal security and the prison-industrial complex have skyrocketed since Trump won the presidency. There is a lot of money to be made from a militarized police state.

MOSCOW ATTACKS!

Watching the mounting Red Hysteria in the US is bizarre and amusing. But most amusing is the media furor claiming that the Kremlin has ‘meddled’ in US elections. Or even threw the vote to Manchurian Candidate, Donald Trump. If there was any foreign meddling, it came from a Mideast ally, not Russia.

Manhattan Project-sized effort is needed to create artificial Arctic ice ‘to...

Experts believe the Arctic could be essentially free of sea ice for the first time in about 100,000 years within the next few decades. The famously impassable North West Passage is already open to shipping and fossil fuel companies are considering drilling in the region.

Trump, Russia and China – a reverse of the Nixon game?

Could it be that, almost 45 years after Nixon’s breakthrough with China, the United States’ 45th president will be taking Kissinger’s advice? President Obama tried to make a “pivot” to Asia the capstone of his foreign policy. Will Donald Trump make a “pivot” toward Moscow, and away from Beijing, a capstone of his?
