Trump’s ‘Treason’: Challenging the Empire

The utter malevolence of our political class was dramatized in all its darkness by their reaction to the Helsinki summit: the “Treason summit” they dubbed it, with the Twitter hashtag going viral. That’s what they think of a meeting between the heads of two countries which have thousands of nuclear-tipped missiles aimed at each other. … Continue reading “Trump’s ‘Treason’: Challenging the Empire”

Saboteurs of Peace: On the Road to Helsinki

If there was ever any doubt that the Russia-gate hoax is a scheme by the War Party to salvage their bankrupt foreign policy, and depose a democratically-elected President, then Robert Mueller’s indictment of twelve alleged GRU agents for “interfering” in the 2016 election settles the matter once and for all. Are we supposed to believe … Continue reading “Saboteurs of Peace: On the Road to Helsinki”

Are the Russia-gate Fanatics Crazy, Or Just Cynical?

The kookification of the “mainstream” continues, with none other than Jonathan Chait – the most conventional sort of boring corporate liberal – producing an unhinged diatribe purporting to prove that Donald Trump has been a Russian agent since 1987 – and that his path to the presidency was paved by his Russian handlers, who were … Continue reading “Are the Russia-gate Fanatics Crazy, Or Just Cynical?”

From Singapore to Helsinki: The Case for Peace

North Korea’s opacity is a boon to the War Party: they can seize on any glitch in the ongoing negotiations with the Trump administration as “proof” that Kim Jong-un “will never give up his nuclear weapons,” as former anti-interventionist Daniel Larison tweets 24 hours a day. The contention is that Pyongyang has a different definition … Continue reading “From Singapore to Helsinki: The Case for Peace”

Sovereignty, Singapore, and the Road to Peace

A lot of the confusion and anger exhibited by the political class – still in shock over Hillary Clinton’s defeat – is due to their inability to accept the pace and character of change. Our Korea “experts” are universally naysaying the Singapore summit not only because they hate Trump to a man (and woman!), but … Continue reading “Sovereignty, Singapore, and the Road to Peace”

Get On the Trump Peace Train!

There’s never a dull moment with the Trump administration, which means: never a moment of rest for the War Party. Trump keeps throwing fast balls at the pundits and assembled “experts,” and they keep striking out, bigtime, as the ball whizzes past their heads and lands, with a thwack!, in the catcher’s mitt. “Steee-rike one!” … Continue reading “Get On the Trump Peace Train!”

Honduras Is a Hellhole: Who’s Responsible?

As tens of thousands gather at our southern border, roiling US politics, the question arises: why are so many of the asylum-seekers and migrants crossing the border illegally from three Central American countries in particular: El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala? To begin with, it’s no coincidence that these are the three “most invaded” countries south … Continue reading “Honduras Is a Hellhole: Who’s Responsible?”

Washington, D.C. – The Epicenter of Crazy

A study shows that the greatest concentration of psychopaths is in Washington, DC. This is a contest in which it isn’t even close, as Politico informs us. But then again, you knew that, right? Ryan Murphy, an economist at Southern Methodist University, “matched up the ‘constellation of disinhibition, boldness and meanness’ that marks psychopathy with … Continue reading “Washington, D.C. – The Epicenter of Crazy”

Why They Hate Tucker Carlson

No one is allowed to dissent from the official Establishment line: that’s the new dispensation in the media, and it is being enforced by the political class, which has launched a series of smear campaigns against anyone who dares question the conventional wisdom. Anyone who questions the veracity of the media, starting with our President, … Continue reading “Why They Hate Tucker Carlson”

Around the World In Two-Thousand Words

There’s a lot going on in this crazy world, and without further ado let’s look at the turmoil and try to make sense of it. The Middle East Mess – While the Trump administration has been making astonishing headway in bringing peace to the Korean peninsula, in the Middle East they are making huge errors … Continue reading “Around the World In Two-Thousand Words”
