    Is Trump in Jeopardy of His Gauche Presidency – Most Probably (#125)
    This past year and particularly these last couple of weeks, were extraordinary in U.S. Presidential history. No sitting President in living memory had so many objectionable actions attributed to him, on a daily basis, and was still left to continue on his self-destructive, and country-destroying ways, without any serious attempts to stop him, or even question him in any meaningful way.   This of course was only possible because he had the unwavering support of the Republican law makers, who

    G-20 World Leaders Meet in Argentina - On Highly Unstable Ground (#124)
    The World’s 13th G-20 Summit was held in Argentina. This year’s location couldn’t have been more appropriately symbolic of the instability of current global affairs as Argentina is the poster boy of regular economic collapses and bailouts by the IMF, as just happened recently in the fall of 2018. Holding the G-20 Summit in Argentina is the perfect metaphor for the collapsing stability in the conflict riven international order, led by the increasingly authoritarian leaders proliferating around

    Saudi Arabia (The Kingdom) – An American Stigma (#123)
    Lately, Saudi Arabia has been in the news a lot, for all the wrong reasons. It is a totalitarian Kingdom, ruled by the founding family of Saud (the House of Saud) some 7,000 strong ‘princes - heirs’, that do not tolerate any (and we mean ANY) criticism, protests, opposition, or any form of dissension, of any kind, to their absolute ownership and rule of the Arabian Peninsula, which is the sixth largest country by geographical size, with the second largest oil reserves in the world. It is also

    100 Years Later – The U-Turn towards ‘Patriotic’ Nationalism (#122)
    A Century has passed since the end of the First World War. On November 11, 2018 the World remembered the signing of the ‘Armistice’ that ended one of the bloodiest and most horrific systematic slaughters, undertaken by humans against other humans, inspired by hyper-nationalism, a full 100 years ago. The times were such that some of the populations of the opposing nations (and their colonies) - Britain, France, Russia (on one side), and Germany, Austria and Italy (on the other side), all engaged

    America Makes A Mid-Term Deal with the Devil - Trump (#121)
    The American November 6th, 2018 Mid-Term Elections were a kind-of referendum on America’s real character, and a chance to retreat, en-masse, from the two years of Trump insanity and vote for everything un-Trump-like – in other words vote for a return to truth, accountability, civility, free-press, inclusion, real democracy, racial equality, and unity. But unfortunately, America came up short and the American’s voted, by and large, in favor of continuing bigotry, racism, inequality,

    A Brief Report Card of Trump’s Term – So Far (#120)
    To the Donald Trump hardcore support base; he can do no wrong. And, in the defense of his pathological lying, disruption, divisiveness, and sheer ineptness as a World leader, the rational given for their continuing support, are his supposedly amazing accomplishments since he became President. So, days before the ‘Mid-Term elections’, we thought a quick assessment of his major promises made during his  2016 campaign, and the accomplishment of them so far were certainly warranted. It has to be

    The Darkening of the Global Horizon – Courtesy Trump (#119)
    The decades following the end of the Second World War have been generally globally progressive, peaceful, and for most countries, a time of increasing prosperity and therefore an age of advances in learning, technology, productivity, international integration, and measurable mitigation of global ignorance and poverty; in other words, all things considered, a golden age of peace and prosperity. But as is typical of the human species, to somewhat slow our evolution and prove and give reign to our

    Trump At the U.N. – World Leaders Laugh, & Disagree (#118)
    The United States President, Donald J. Trump, addressed the United Nations Assembly in New York on Tuesday September 25th, 2018 and was laughed at for his embarrassing need for exaggerated self-promotion. His insistence that globalization, nations uniting to work on global issues such as trade, climate change and conflicts, was evil, and only independent patriotic nationalism was the new solution, showed a shocking lack of historic perspective, as did his insensitivity to being in and addressing

    The World in Flux – As It Keeps Turning (#117)
    These past weeks have been eventful to say the least, what with the recent divisive funeral of Senator John McCain, pitting the heroic uniting force of John McCain against the derisive, divisive forces of Donald Trump; the contentious NAFTA negotiations between the threatening Donald Trump instructed U.S. negotiators and the defiant Canadian government; the shocking riots and rise of the neo-Nazi’s in Germany; the increasing heavy-handedness of India’s Hindu Nationalists as they trample on
