    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

    Canada - In the Age of the Bully Nations (#116)
    The plaintive statement “We don’t have a single friend” as a headline on an article in a major news organization caught our attention. Upon reading the article, it was a bit surprising to know that the statement referred to Canada as being abandoned by its many allies and friends around the World, in its bizarre diplomatic spat with Saudi Arabia. The rather dramatic statement was attributed to Rachel Curran, a policy director under the former conservative government of Canadian PM Stephen

    The Big Tent of Lies - & Trump Follies (#115)
    No U.S. President in recent history is as shameless in promoting himself as Donald J. Trump, or lies as much. And, no previous President has as shamefully trashed his predecessors in such shameful language so as to make most of the civilized World cringe. He amply displayed his utter lack of social graces when announcing the American pullout from the multi-country Iran Nuclear Deal. In his twisted mind Trump thinks that by denigrating the actions of the previous Presidents verbally, he lifts

    A Dream for Some – Despair and Death for Others (#114)
    On May 14, 2018, the graphic images streaming from Jerusalem and from Gaza showed two very different Worlds. One was of raw entitlement, privilege and power, and even claims of manifestation of Divine Prophecy, and the other, of abject squalor, hopelessness, desperate despair, and helplessness in the face of ruthless, merciless, purposeful maiming and death. As some in Israel and America celebrated the long awaited U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem as the culmination of a dream come true, a wail
  6. Trump - Tale of Two Deals – Iran & North Korea (#112)

    Trump - Tale of Two Deals – Iran & North Korea (#112)
    The two major foreign policy milestones coming up for the Trump administration that will impact the rest of the World, are the Iran Nuclear Agreement, known officially as the ‘Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and Trump’s threat to break it, and the North and South Korea Summit which will attempt to reach an consensus on the cessation of historic animosities between North and South Korea, and the USA, and the potential ‘complete de-nuclearization’ of the Korean Peninsula. Both of these

    The Summit That Will Shape - South East Asia (#111)
    If the talks between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un actually take place, uncertainty being endemic to the relationship, considering the volatile and unpredictable nature of the two leaders, and the terms of the meeting not being clear, the outcome of that meeting if it happens will shape the power-equation that will shape South-East and Far-East Asia. The enmity between North Korea and the United States of America goes back to the early 1950s, when the intervention of American Armed Forces saved

    Moderation Out - American Hawkishness In (#110)
    One of Donald Trump’s interminable boasts has been that he hires only the very best. In actuality, the very start of his Presidency dispelled that myth forthwith as Trump started having to get rid of his early handpicked team including some of his most prominent campaign team members, and then those that survived into the Presidency itself, particularly his personal favorite the highly suspect and thoroughly tainted and intemperate National Security Advisor, Retd. General Mike Flynn. Since then

    Trump’s Reign: Nero-Style - The Burning of Rome (#109)
    As an American President, Donald J. Trump is proving to be so unconventional, so outrageous in his behavior, so vindictive and destructive in some of his actions and words that it is not possible to find a suitable comparison in modern American history, even the famed misfit George W. Bush does not compare. But there is an uncanny resemblance to one of history’s more infamous ruler from ancient times, the Roman Emperor Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, who was thought to have burned down
