Before he  demeaned ,  guaranteed  and  taunted  his way to the top of the polls — indeed, before the very first “Make America Great” hat even came off of the assembly line — the Republican Party got its first incontrovertible evidence of the extent of its problem with Donald Trump, via a report in The Washington Post. It started harmlessly enough. In early July, The Post cited unnamed Republican donors and consultants in reporting on a phone conversation that Trump had with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus

Obama’s China Syndrome

27Sep

President Barack Obama’s Washington summit and White House state dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping marked one of the administration’s last big attempts to place U.S.-China relations on a good track. With China’s secretive and troubled massive economy affecting others in ways we’re still learning, growing American concern over cyber-espionage matched by Chinese concern about global surveillance, and China becoming still more aggressive in its extraordinary maritime claims, Obama has a lot to overcome.

Friday Talking Points — Bye-Bye, Rick!

12Sep

Breaking news! Rick Perry drops out of presidential race! This news broke after almost all of this column was written, so we’re just going to add this bit at the top to snarkily wish Rick Perry well in his future endeavors. I must admit I got it wrong when I predicted a few weeks ago that Perry would stay in the race longer than Jim Gilmore, George Pataki, Lindsey Graham, Rick Santorum, and Bobby Jindal. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun betting who will drop out next! With Perry gone already, I predict that Gilmore will be next, seeing as how he didn’t even make it onto next week’s CNN kid’s table debate.

Republicans have done everything they can to win the Jewish vote, never missing an opportunity to link Democrats and any foreign policy opponent to the Nazis and the Holocaust. They just don’t get how offensive such remarks are to Jewish voters, continuing to drive them toward Democrats. The latest came from former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who recently said President Obama “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven,” in an interview with Breitbart News, according to Igor Bobic with the Huffington Post

For most of my adult life, this semi-literate, mega-rich egomaniac out of New York called Donald Trump has pretended to be an important public figure, making an endless array of half-baked public pronouncements, slapping his name on things, and generally giving narcissistic personality disorder a bad name. Naturally, our devolutionary news media has played along with the guy all along, giving him coverage with no laugh track. It’s all been a gigantic waste of time and intellectual bandwidth.

There are ideas and calls in the US arena for stronger, firmer, and more decisive measures to implement the policy declared by US President Barack Obama to eliminate ISIS, as part of a comprehensive and calculated strategy away from arbitrariness and hesitation. Many high-level military officials who previously served in senior posts have started talking publicly about the “failure” of the United States to defeat al-Qaeda, ISIS, the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and other radical Islamists because of the policies and decisions of the executive branch, particularly under Obama

Change is not the goal

19Ene

In the 2008 US Presidential campaign between Barack Obama and John McCain, Obama claimed to be “the change we need” while McCain claimed to be a “maverick reformer”. The fact that both candidates on the world’s largest stage ran on a ‘change platform’ is symbolic of how much the concept of ‘change’ is a part of our contemporary lexicon. More recently, the claiming of a change platform by political leaders has spread across the Middle East, North and East Africa; as a desperate attempt to hang on to the last threads of power, or in attempt to replace incumbent regimes
