America - The Helpless 'Superpower'

Trump’s critique of the political class, and his diagnosis of the US as an empire in decline, is what gives his message resonance – and it’s one reason why the political class hates him with a passion. His success is the measure of their failure. We are headed for some dark times. In spite of that, however, there will always be those who will uphold the original spirit of our old republic and fight to defend it against all comers. Out of this will come a renewal – that is, if there is to be one.

Trump & The Press - A Death Struggle

No matter who wins in November, America is going to face a divide unseen in decades. If Donald Trump wins, he will confront a resident media more hateful than that which confronted Richard Nixon in 1968. If Hillary Clinton wins, she will come to office distrusted and disbelieved by most of her countrymen, half of whom she has maligned either as “deplorables” or pitiful souls in need of empathy.

Emails Show Hillary Aide Sid Blumenthal Created Obama "Birther" Conspiracy

Following last week's clarification from Trump that President Obama is American-born, the mainstream media has worked hard to dispel his claims that Hillary's team in fact started the "birther" issue. Just this morning, Hillary exclaimed that she was "appalled" that Trump had not apologized to Obama, which is ironic as McClatchy has just clarified the details on emails that show Hillary Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal did share "birther" story tips.

An Unorthodox Solution To The World's Economic Problems

We currently face a monumental dilemma. How do we extract ourselves from all this excessive debt without crashing the world economy? It’s basically a “one time” get out of jail card for the world economy.

Fooled Again

The naive hopes of Bernie Sanders’ supporters - to build a grass-roots political movement, change the Democratic Party from within and push Hillary Clinton to the left - have failed. The multibillion-dollar extravaganza of our electoral Circus Maximus is part of the smokescreen that covers the ongoing devastation of globalization, deindustrialization, trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, endless war, climate change and the intrusion into every corner of our lives by the security and surveillance state. Our democracy is dead.

Bibi Backs Trump — On Putin

John McCain told Pence that Putin was a “thug and a butcher,” and Trump’s embrace of him intolerable. Said Lindsey Graham: “Vladimir Putin is a thug, a dictator…who has his opposition killed in the streets,” and Trump’s views bring to mind Munich. Remarkable. Bibi, a buddy of Vlad, gets $38 billion from the same Republican senators who, when Donald Trump says he will repay personal compliments from Vladimir Putin, gets the McCain-Graham wet mitten across the face.

European Leaders Discuss Plan For European Army

"We are going to move towards an EU army much faster than people believe." But the creation of a European army, a long-held goal of European federalists, would entail an unprecedented transfer of sovereignty from European nation states to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, the de facto capital of the EU.
