Donald Trump

Might The Donald Be Good For Peace?

Trump says that the US has to "fix our own mess" before "lecturing" other nations on how to behave. No matter how extreme he may be in some of his statements, that one strikes a truly sensible note. Why does America consider that it has the right to hector and lecture China and Russia and so many other countries? It is, of course, because, as Obama announced, America considers itself the "one indispensable nation in world affairs."

Michelle Obama Takes A Shot At "Make America Great Again"

"Don’t let someone tell you this country isn’t great - that we need to make it great again. Because, right now, this country is the greatest country on Earth." or “Well, that was a colossal waste of my time,” said Obama with an air of weary irritation before reminding the audience she had been 45 years old at her husband’s inauguration and now she was “fifty-fucking-two.”

Hillary Clinton Is In Deep Trouble: "Hordes Of Wall Street Executives" Descend Upon Philly

We believe Hillary Clinton lost the Presidency this past week. While the explosive DNC leaks will undoubtably have a long lasting effect, this post will barely reference the leaks. Rather, it will explain how recent decisions by the Hillary campaign played right into Trump’s hands by essentially waving a gigantic middle finger to the 73% of Americans who think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Snowden Explains How To Get To The Bottom Of "Who Hacked The Democrats"

"Even if the attackers try to obfuscate origin, #XKEYSCORE makes following exfiltrated data easy. I did this personally against Chinese ops. Evidence that could publicly attribute responsibility for the DNC hack certainly exists at #NSA, but DNI traditionally objects to sharing. The aversion to sharing NSA evidence is fear of revealing "sources and methods" of intel collection, but #XKEYSCORE is now publicly known."

Furious Sanders Supporters, Angry Media, Blistering Chaos Marks First Day Of Democratic Convention

Democrats were delighted to watch as last week's scandal-plagued Republican National Convention lurched from one fiasco to another until.... the Democratic National Convention appeared to crash and burn in a disoragnized launch among angry supporters, blistering temperatures, sheer chaos, and a fractured organization that has left Republicans stunned in amazement at a Democratic party seemingly torn in two.

We're Sorry! - DNC Apologizes To Bernie For "Inexcusable Remarks"

Facing an already rambunctious crowd - chanting 'Bernie' at every mention of Clinton - The DNC has been forced to issue a formal apology to Bernie Sanders (and presumably his supporters).... "the inexcusable remarks... do not reflect the value of the DNC or our steadfast commitment to neutrality during the nominating process."

Stephen Roach Says Trump's Right On Globalization: It's A Broken System

"While seemingly elegant in theory, globalization suffers in practice. That is the lesson of Brexit and of the rise of Donald Trump in the United States. And it also underpins the increasingly virulent anti-China backlash now sweeping the world. Those who worship at the altar of free trade, including me, must come to grips with this glaring disconnect."

"The System Has No Chance Of Regaining Stability"

"I see people saying the system is unstable. Fine, as long as they realize it has no chance of regaining stability, not with its present components. There will have to be a big clean-up. But it will be messy. A very limited number of people, with all of their minions, control the entire now unstable edifice, and they’ll fight tooth and nail to keep their power. Nevertheless, they’ll lose."

FBI Launches Probe Of 'Putin/Trump' DNC Cyber-Attack

Following the release of greatly embarrassing emails that are forcing Hillary to lose control of the narrative, Politico reports, The Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a probe into the hacking of the Democratic National Committee's emails. We are sure Director Comey will be closely watching and AG Lynch will once again take his word as gospel as somehow, we suspect, a narrative of Trump-Putin partnership will be created (or at the very least questions raised).
