GUEST BLOG: Andra Jenkin – Flip-flopping over Ratings and the Russian Constitution

By   /  April 18, 2017  /  Guest Blogs + Sponsored Posts, Most Recent Blogs  /  10 Comments

The problem of writing about Trump is usually where to start. Last week it was clearly with his bombing of Syria. You know, that country he didn’t want to bomb because it wasn’t America’s problem, so why should he get involved? But flip-flopping has been this week’s buzzword. Things Trump is currently flip-flopping over include […]

Why Bill English is wrong to support Trump’s air strike on Syria

By   /  April 10, 2017  /  Keith Locke, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  12 Comments

The rapidity with which Bill English fell in behind Trump’s unilateral strike on Syria shows how little the NZ government values the UN Security Council, despite just having completed two years on it. New Zealand sidelined the Security Council and supported a US strike contravening the UN Charter. Article 51 of the Charter allows one nation to strike another only in “self-defence”. America wasn’t being attacked by Syria.

Trump Attacks Syria: America’s President Demonstrates His Country’s Commitment to “Peace and Harmony”

By   /  April 8, 2017  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  35 Comments

What has also become clear, since the missile launch, is that the American congress was not consulted or advised before the order to attack Syria was given. President Trump decided to make war upon another sovereign state unilaterally – apparently unconcerned that his decision was in clear contravention of Article One, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution which states that “[The Congress shall have Power…] To declare War” – not the President.

Donald Trump launches Tomahawk missiles at Syria

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Reflections On Trump’s Failure With ‘Ryancare’

By   /  March 27, 2017  /  Curwen Rolinson, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  1 Comment

Late last week, the abysmal healthcare ‘reform’ proposal of Paul Ryan’s which Trump had inexplicably chosen to support … failed fairly unequivocally. How badly did it flounder? It didn’t even make it to First Reading, on grounds that even other Republicans could not bring themselves to vote for it.

The GCHQ is telling us to just ignore the claims the president is making. “They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.” This is problematic, because it puts me in the uncomfortable position of completely agreeing with a spy agency.
