Hmmmmm… No one has paid much attention to Lil’ Kim (Jong Un) lately since the recent tragic events involving alt-right white supremacists and alt-left protesters in Charlottesville, VA. POTUS Trump, an alternative-reality star in his own right (pun intended), adores being in the global spotlight and has garnered most of it. However, I wonder if […]
Politics is a rough and dirty game and sometimes looks more akin to WWE. Here is a slice of Trump back in the day before he lost his mind and decided to run for president. (After all, one has to be insane to subject oneself to the abuse and rigors of a presidential campaign.) In this […]
I jotted notes down last week and intended to post this earlier, but became distracted with other matters. It looks like Africa just told the IMF and World Bank to go f*ck their sisters. Raising more than just an eyebrow was an online article I read from Financial Juneteenth, which reported that the R&B singer and producer, […]
I have often said that technology is the “guy” that the status quo (or at least those who will not change) never see coming. In a digital world being continuously transformed by disruptive innovations, the words of the late president, John F. Kennedy, never rang truer: “Change is the law of life. And those […]
Okay, folks now that the dust has settled, I am still trying to wrap my head around Donald Trump’s immigration plan, which is estimated to cost more than $50 billion over 5 years. More importantly, how does it gets financed? LMFAO…. It is my understanding that Trump is the master of bankruptcy, so I guess […]
As stated previously, I thought Colin Kaepernick should have protested in a different manner, but as I was trying to say earlier before all the foaming at the mouth “Real Americans” got all worked up…
Any “Trumpire” supporters care to defend Donald on the latest desertion by some “real” Republicans? Right-wing media pundits are calling these defectors out as not being “real” Republicans? Give me a break! They are “real” by virtue of the fact that they refuse to live in an alternative reality whose world is controlled by a […]
Mike Tyson comes out swinging in this Huffington Post interview with Alex Miranda and whether you like Trump or not, which I do not, he makes some valid points about the political climate in America and inadvertently provides an explanation for Trump supporters.
Whether one likes it or not, the U.S. is a global empire and realpolitk dictates that it cannot retreat into being an isolationist power without giving up the leverage and benefits that governments, businesses and individual citizens enjoy. Stratford analysts, Rodger Baker and Reva Goujon, discuss the challenges of crafting foreign policy for the next […]
It’s funny how principle has a way of impacting principles. (In this video, note Stratfor’s commentary analysis on Russia’s willingness to engage Japan for a source of capital and trade. It is not the first or last time you will hear of such.)
When it comes to political gamesmanship or sportsman like conduct, if such even exist, the GOP is afflicted with the curiously peculiar disease of Benjamin Button and has retrogressed to a pre-adolescent narcissistic child who upsets the board and tantrums when it realizes that the outcome it seeks cannot be realized1. Republican Senator of Illinois, […]
President Barack Obama delivered his final State of the Union (SOTU) address on January-12-2016.
Rodger Baker, East Asia analyst at Stratfor, reviews the shifting motivations that may be underneath North Korea’s nuclear bomb test.
