Co-Written by Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers The Democratic Party’s electoral strategy of impeaching Donald Trump is backfiring. Before impeachment, Trump was losing to each of the leading Democrats, but the latest USA Today/Suffolk University poll finds for the first time Trump defeating all...

Here’s the question at hand — and I guarantee you that you’ll read it here first: Is Donald Trump the second or even possibly the third 9/11? Because truly, he has to be one or the other. Let me explain, and while I do, keep this in mind: as 2019 ends, thanks to Brexit and the victory of Boris...

Democracy of Inhumanity and We, the People of Global Consciousness In a synoptic view, global leaders professing to be wise and smart for being elected, turned out to be naïve, unthinkable and egoistically foolish. Once elected under the so called democracy, they focus their minds on how to get...

And so it came to pass, that in the deep state’s frenzy of electoral desperation, the ‘impeachment’ card was played. The hammer has fallen. Nearly the entirety of the legacy media news cycle has been dedicated to the details, and not really pertinent details, but the sorts of details which...

There are lots of things to criticize about Tulsi Gabbard’s “present” vote in the impeachment charade. Her invocation of Alexander Hamilton in her “House Divided” statement was ridiculous. Why this constant need to invoke a statesman who died more than two centuries ago? Do British politicians...

This week the US House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump.  This was a major event—and a very good thing!  Even with the narrow terms on which the Democrats carried this out, people seized on this with enthusiasm.  Thousands poured into the streets.  They were both furious and...

Year after year, the right-wing Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles publishes its shitlist[1] of the ten worst Anti-Semetic incidents around the world. To no one’s surprise, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labor Party came in first. On closer inspection, the list turns out to be an instrument of smear and...

For years, the special status that Morocco was ordained by the EU, was hailed as a great triumph. But when top officials from EU countries treat the kingdom like a cheap girlfriend to use when it wants, then some might call it abusive and neo-colonial.

Fittingly for the jolly season, the House of Representatives’ vote to impeach Trump was more pantomime than serious politics.

“Oh yes, he is!.. Oh no, he isn’t!..” and so it went on for nearly 10 hours of to-and-fro between Democrats and Republicans. Eventually, the finale came when black...
