Während des US-Wahlkampfes hat sich Donald Trump durch drei Dinge hervorgetan: das Streben nach normalisierten Russland-Beziehungen, den Ruf nach einer Stärkung des amerikanischen Arbeitsmarktes und die direkte Adressierung des amerikanischen Volkes. Wie Paul Craig Roberts erkennt, hat er sich damit die herrschende Elite zum Feind gemacht. Während diese ihn stetig weiter von seinen Zielen forttreibt, verlieren die USA immer mehr an Einfluss und Anerkennung. Oder ist es in Wahrheit etwa so, dass Trump auf seinem verlorenen Posten die einstige Weltmacht absichtlich demoliert?

While the new US anti-terrorist strategy doesn’t change much in terms of the fight itself, it operates a profound modification of the working rules of the Pentagon and the Secretariat of Homeland Security. It is not so much a rationalisation of what has been developed since 2001, but more a redefinition of the missions of the federal State. 4 October 2018, the White House published the new « National Strategy for Counterterrorism » . This document is presented as a split from what has been achieved so far in the matter – the last text, dating from the Obama administration, was published in 2011. In reality, this is a compromise between President Trump and the Pentagon.

In den USA wird ein Kandidat für den Posten des Obersten Richters derzeit der sexuellen Belästigung beschuldigt. Um es klar zu sagen, jede sexuelle Belästigung und erst recht Vergewaltigung gehört streng bestraft. Aber dazu gibt es Gerichte, eine Anschuldigung reicht nicht aus. In den USA ist es jedoch anders, da reicht oft eine Anschuldigung aus.

The takedown of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh didn’t start with Christine Blasey Ford or Senator Dianne Feinstein. It started with a Planned Parenthood photoshopped ad i way back in November of 2012 that depicted Kavanaugh as a “newcomer”. With all the histrionics of Ford now jarring front page headlines, it is not easy too see that she’s only the bit player in the #MeToo assassination of Brett Kavanaugh, a prop moved forward by Planned Parenthood when the time was right.

Robert Mueller’s fishing crew was out trawling for Manafort, a blubbery swamp mammal valued for its lubricating oil when, by happenstance, a strange breed of porpoise called a Podesta got caught up in the net. Turns out it was a traveling companion of the Manafort. Back in 2014, the pair swam all the way to a little country called Ukraine via the Black Sea where the Podesta used some Manafort SuperLube on then-president of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovych.

In all the drama and froth of Thursday’s U.S. Senate hearings into sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, there was one vast element missing; not a single, but a whole herd of elephants in the room. Christine Blasey Ford’s 36-year-old charge was, even in the absence of all corroboration and despite its cloudiness (no place, time, or witness), a serious business.

Netanyahu`s Thursday UN General Assembly speech predictably included the familiar props and visuals condemning Iran over what the Israeli prime minister says is a continuing nuclear program it is hiding from the world`s view. Like pretty much all prior Netanyahu speeches focusing on Iran, he held up a physical "evidence" to illustrate his points as he spoke — this time it was a "proof" that Iran has yet another secret warehouse holding nuclear-related material in the form of an aerial photograph of the Iranian capital marked with a red arrow pointing to a large building.

Two years into his Presidency, Donald Trump’s accomplishments are constantly lauded by his followers. America’s finance and business worlds are on the road to recovery and diplomatic relations with North Korea are improving so substantially that a peace accord on the peninsula may be in store down the road. ISIS, while still maintaining a global network that threatens the United States, has been routed from much of the territory they once openly occupied in the Middle East.

The repugnant reality of class privilege in America is captured by the phrase date rape: the violence of forced, non-consensual sex is abhorrent rape when committed by commoner criminals, but implicitly excusable date rape when committed by a member of America’s privileged elite. Compare the effectiveness of excuses offered by privileged elites (we were both drinking, I didn’t hear her say no, etc.) when offered in court by less privileged males on trial for rape. The privileged elite is acquitted or given a wrist-slap while the commoner gets 20 years in prison.

Author of the popular book “The Trump Prophecies,” Mark Taylor says what is going on is all a setup for the coming military tribunals, which Taylor gave a prophecy for right after Donald Trump was elected in 2016. Taylor says the tribunals will be for “the evil people” of the failed coup of President Trump. Taylor also says, “If you notice, one of Hillary Clinton’s tweets is if Kavanaugh gets in, he’s going to gut Roe v. Wade. They are disguising it under Roe v. Wade.

Last Friday the New York Times published a story that reflected negatively on the loyalty of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein towards President Trump. Rosenstein, the NYT claimed, suggested to wiretap Trump and to remove him by using the 25th amendment. Other news reports contradicted the claim and Rosenstein himself denied it. The report was a trap to push Trump towards an impulsive firing of the number two in the Justice Department, a repeat of Nixon`s Saturday Night Massacre.

....Dr. Janda says what the Democrats are doing is panicking over the declassifying and release of incriminating DOJ and FBI documents that prove there was a plot to frame President Trump with phony evidence. The Dems and Deep State are fighting the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because they know when he is seated, Trump will have another judge loyal to the Constitution and a solid 5 to 4 court. This means that criminals in top positions in the U.S. government can and will be indicted. The Dems and Deep State are doing everything possible to block Kavanaugh, but he is going to be pushed through....

Fascism is a loaded topic for Americans. The term is usually put forward as oppositional, as the flip side of representative democracy, e.g. authoritarian. Left unaddressed is whose interests’ American representative democracy represents. Twenty years of research by political scientist Thomas Ferguson strongly supports the conclusion that it is monied interests (a/k/a the rich) that determines public policy. And while this isn’t the authoritarian leader alluded to with the charge of fascism, neither does it contrast with it in the sense implied.

Last year I had an interesting conversation with someone I’ll call the Washington Insider. She asked me why my structural-demographic model predicted rising instability in the USA, probably peaking with a major outbreak of political violence in the 2020s. I started giving the explanation based on the three main forces: popular immiseration, intra-elite competition, and state fragility. But I didn’t get far because she asked me, what immiseration? What are you talking about? We’ve never lived better than today. Global poverty is declining, child mortality is declining, violence is declining.

In some cases, there has been no concrete evidence presented that the coup ever really existed.
