[Author’s Note: Due to some confusion derived from people not reading beyond the first few lines, it’s probably necessary to include a disclaimer at this point – I’m NOT defending Trump here. Read the whole thing before angrily writing in to suggest otherwise, please.]Read More →
Sure Trump’s foul remarks re Haiti, El Salvador and African countries in general are raising ire around the world. I like the remarks coming from Norway about a ‘shithole’ of a country that does not have a decent publicly funded free health system .Read More →
Let us be clear about this: if you’re going to oppose Donald Trump or anyone else … please let it be for actual, tangible reasons rather than motivated by a media-fostered fear and loathing of the victims of mental illness.Read More →
The self-fulfilling evangelical death cult prophesy that pushed Trump into declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel
For this voting block, the Bible is a literal version of events, not a metaphorical one. They believe the Earth is less than 10 000 years old, they believe climate change won’t flood the planet because God showed Noah a rainbow and they believe that the end of times and Armageddon could be upon us and they will all be raptured away to heaven.Read More →
By announcing the United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Trump has sent two very important messages to the extreme Zionist elements in Israeli society. The first message is brutally simple: the so-called “two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is dead. The second, to the government of Benjamin Netanyahu, is that, as the political logic of the two-state solution’s demise is followed to its inevitable and brutal conclusion, the United States has got Israel’s back. Not just at the UN Security Council, but everywhere Israel needs American support.Read More →
Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital the stupidest, most corrupt, most unthinking, most damaged and most infantile decision of his entire stupid, corrupt, unthinking, damaged, infantile Presidency
We are in for dark days comrades.
Climate change has invited Famine and Death, Trump has invited Conquest and War.
We have the makings of our Apocalypse in the valley of Armageddon.
I think the far more horrifying reality is that Trump is not going anywhere and even if he is impeached and tied up in some further prosecution, we are all simply being hopeful that this nightmare ends rather than that being the reality.Read More →
It was not the decision to decertify the Iran’s nuclear deal that has left most ordinary Iranians incensed but the US President’s misnaming of the Persian Gulf as the Arabian Gulf. Many Iranians have taken to the social media to express their rage and disappointment at the President’s failure to refer to the Persian Gulf by its proper name.Read More →
Trump is building a third electorate, alienated culturally and broken economically by Democrats and Republicans and fuelled on racist radicalism. All he needs now is some external threat to manipulate and demand total obedience from.Read More →
Trump is reviving Bush junior’s bellicose approach to the DPRK which carries great risks for the whole world.Read More →
…if the papers reveal a plot to assassinate its own President, in one move Trump could kill off any loyalty to the Republic and replace it with himself. Previous Presidents might have decided that such information would be too destructive to the establishment to ever release, Trump wouldn’t care.Read More →
When I was a kid, around 12 I guess, my father was a newsreader on Radio Windy. The news would come out of a clunky teletype machine in a long roll of paper. Circled with a line through it was the news not to be broadcast on the air. Dad assigned me the task of reading these items.Read More →
…The US intelligence apparatus could not prove that the Syrians had committed a chemical attack, but that didn’t matter to Trump, he went ahead with a military strike regardless.Read More →
The latest rollback of the Obama presidency’s easing of relations with Cuba as a deepening of the blockade, now in place for 54 years, should be condemned.Read More →
People ask why I’m not writing about Barack Obama, because he too dropped bombs and gave military support to Israel and did any number of dubious things that American presidents seem to do as a matter of course. In fact presidents who have dropped bombs include but are not limited to Washington, Lincoln, Regan, Truman, Nixon, Bush senior and JuniorRead More →
Trump’s mix of corrupt capitalism, brittle ego and aggressive neurotic defensiveness makes trying to derive motive from his behaviour extremely difficult, and I think while Comey’s testimony is completely true and factual, the crazy shit that floats through the President’s mind which he can use to defend his comments makes impeaching him successfully an extremely unlikely event.Read More →
