Modern day Russia is tiny, in every critical aspect of global power, to the one and only true ‘Super-Power’ in the World today – The United States of America – (except geographically, of course). Yet it seems to be in almost complete command of America’s administration through the abjectly servile Donald J. Trump, who cannot help but bow and scrape in front of the diminutive Vladimir Putin, as does his administration, and the enablers - the Republican Senators and Congressmen
Finally, reportedly, there are murmurs of discontent surfacing from Robert Mueller’s investigators that ‘Attorney General William Barr did not do the Mueller Report justice’, in his 4-page summary. It is possibly the most significant, cynical understatement of the year. Significant, because on it hangs the truth about Trump and his teams activities during and after the Election Campaign; cynical, because for years now the Republican Party has proven itself unable to tell the
Infamously now, Paul Manafort got a huge break from Judge T. S. Ellis, the III, no-less, who sentenced Manafort to 47 months, for crimes which required a jail sentence somewhere between 19 to 24 years. The outrageously lenient sentence created a furor in America, as commentators, legal experts and most law-makers expressed shock and disbelief at the brevity of the sentence and the injustice of the Judge in flaunting legal precedents and minimum sentence requirements. Judge T.
America is in the midst of a political civil war, and it’s about a ‘Wall’. This wall, or the lack of it, promised by President Trump to his supporters, is to be built on the country’s southern border with Mexico to keep migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, drugs, criminals, terrorists, and all other means of evil from America the ‘Promised Land’. To the World’s oppressed, persecuted, and poor, and those that just want to partake, or have a shot at, the proverbial ‘American Dre
When a dangerously ignorant person is elected to the highest office in the land, the country is going to suffer grievously, sooner than later. At the end of the year, 2018, almost two years into Donald Trump’s Presidency, America is looking incredibly dysfunctional, corrupt, divided, and more as a ‘Banana Republic’ in its governance, than the leader of the Free World; and Trump is wholly responsible. This transformation, from a somewhat bruised but still respected World leade
Lately, as business and economic realities made their presence felt in falling financial markets, tech companies descending from their extraordinary peaks, retailer bankruptcies (like Sears), General Motors (GM) auto plant closures, steadily rising rates from their historic lows, and softening of the economic outlook, America that prided itself as the ‘free market’ champion of the world, once again became ‘Socialist/Communist’ and dictated a reversal to the downturn by politi
For this coming November 6th, mid-term election, Donald Trump has been taking credit for the ‘greatest economy ever, in the history of the Country’, unceasingly; and also for the greatest ‘stock market’ ever, and the greatest unemployment numbers, ever... and so on and so on. The economy and the stock markets have done well, and the unemployment numbers are really good, but most of the hard work was done by President Barack Obama, after the last Republican administration of G
America has been slowly but steadily coming off the rails for many a decade. But since Donald Trump’s Presidency, it is completely off the rails, and has become the ‘drunk’ at the Party that is destroying all norms of civil behavior much to the alarm and chagrin of the rest of the civilized, democratic World (not much of it left). Conversely, America’s self destructive behavior is causing great delight in its historic adversaries such as Russia, China, and the rest of the aut
