While genuine criticism is always healthy, it is important to realize that many of those who get ignited by even hearing the names of places like Dubai or Singapore are actually living in the cities like New York, Paris or London. Some are even practicing law, or other mainstream professions that have to be defined as the true mainstays of Western...
Dear reader, your faithful columnist has occasion to dine with wealthy men. Being of a curious nature I love to ask questions. One of my favorites is, "What are your top two hot buttons, or issues? Things like the second amendment, poverty, the environment, immigration, abortion...."
Two weeks into his Presidency, it is time for Donald Trump to sit down, shut up and listen because we already have sabre-rattling against Iran for no legitimate reason whatsoever, we have the new US envoy to the UNO showing she is as bad as, or worse than, Samantha Power and we have chief poodle the UK mouthing off against Russia, again.
Throughout history, secret and open structures accustomed to manage the world have brought other countries under their hegemony through certain methods. This is often achieved through financial dependency. The banks owned by the secret structures are always ready to step in "as a helper that shows up in hard times"
They say that history repeats itself, and damned if it doesn't. Events in an embittered and divided America that have given rise to Donald Trump are eerily similar to events in an embittered and divided Germany that gave rise to an infamous character who entered the annals of history for the wrong reasons - all the wrong reasons..
If Donald Trump wanted to steal pride of place in the headlines after his first week in the Presidency, he certainly managed to do it. He probably predicted the howls of derision reverberating around a world in which imperialism and then globalization created migration, a world in which the term immigration cannot by definition be illegal.
When asked, former U.S. President, Bill Clinton, brushed off the reporter. Instead, he demurred. His answer was gruff. "The American Dream has not existed for decades; make that for over half a century." Some context was missing. Bill, like others of his 'class' was speaking from the other side. He was hobknobbing.
Let us look very closely at what Trump's philosophy is while keeping an eye on Mussolini's musings in the snippet quoted above and in the president's diktats via Twitter. And let us pay attention to the political and economic landscape and the disaffection with neo-liberalism that is sweeping the Western World
The fact that the newly elected President of the United States of America is already at loggerheads with the media, after two days, comes as no surprise. The mass media supports and is supported by the Establishment, while Brexit yesterday, Trump today and Le Pen, tomorrow, represent a New Establishment - a new cycle in the twenty-first century.
Josef Goebbels' name lives on in infamy. Eight decades have passed. Yet the prominent Nazi figure left an indelible font of knowledge in the wake of his death (allegedly by his own hand). Historians still research this man's career in detail, even in the present epoch. Moreover, the former head of Hitler's Propaganda Ministry could teach modern...
Oh dear reader the United States continues to devolve into pure Twilight Zone. The lastest is the recent assassination attempt on the life of Trump insider and loyalist, Roger Stone. Who is Roger Stone? Let's put it this way who gets banned from CNN and MSNBC? Roger Stone. How can you get banned from two major networks?
Recent surveys in the West which show that 69% of Americans, and a similar number of Brits, believe that WW III is 'just around the corner' is an excellent example of Western hysteria and media manipulation designed to build up hype for an 'all out' war - the final Armageddon
When a President leaves office, she or he takes their hat with them and ceases to hold the same position or be responsible for the policies with which commentators agree or disagree. As nothing is black or white, like Barack Obama, I believe a political epitaph should be fair and not an exercise in charcter assassination.
