Impeachment becomes psychological case study

The Chinese Whisper Game, which also goes by various other names, such as “Telephone,” goes like this: One person whispers some information to another. The hearer then whispers the information to a third person, the third to a fourth, and so on through an entire line of participants. At the end of the line, the final hearer announces the information, and everyone laughs...

South Korean defense in the hands of North Korean sympathizers

Yesterday came the news that Donald Trump and Moon Jae-in had cancelled joint military drills yet again, in an attempt to revive “peace talks” with Kim Jong Un. In other words, they were continuing the overt appeasement policy that has proven an abject failure every time it has ever been tried in dealing with any brutal tyranny, anywhere, ever. Moon plays this game...

Trump, Pompeo: The news behind the headlines

Apparently Donald Trump is turning his death stare (i.e., his tiny, twittering fingers) on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The official reporting is that this is a response to Pompeo’s lack of firmness in fighting the IMPEACHMENT HOAX.  This is a cover story, or a diversion from the real issue here. The sycophantic Pompeo has been everything Donald the Wonder Traitor ever wanted,...

Hey, what’s a little quid pro quo among friends?

Donald Trump and his spokesmonkeys throughout the administration and the “conservative media” spent the first weeks of the furor over Trump’s alleged use of promised U.S. assistance to Ukraine as a bargaining chip for Ukraine’s help in providing dirt on Joe Biden’s son shouting, “There was no quid pro quo!” They used the expression exactly the way they had previously used “No collusion!” ...

Trump kills ISIS leader with his (tiny) bare hands!

The U.S. military, apparently with considerable assistance from the Russian and Turkish governments that recently sat down to divvy up the territory which used to belong to the Kurds, before Donald Trump abandoned them to mass slaughter, has found and killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Needless to say, Trump is telling the world that he personally did this, and taking full credit...

Trump redefines national disgrace as “winning”

Donald Trump is now out on Twitter boasting about his incredible new “deal” with Turkey, in which Turkey gets to occupy the part of Syria she just invaded thanks to Trump’s superfluous green light, the Kurds permanently lose their territory, the Russians will end up making all the real decisions, the ISIS prisoners set free by fleeing Kurds will stay free, and the...

“Hey, wha’ happin?”

The day Donald Trump pulled his “Let them eat Turkish bullets” stunt against the Kurds — since, after all, the Kurdish navy contributed squat at Normandy, and an orange elephant never forgets — I said, matter-of-factly (or so it seemed to me), that this was yet another instance of Trump directly capitulating to Vladimir Putin’s interests. Since then, I have chronicled, with equal...

To those fools who thought Trump was a Russian agent…

Donald Trump abandons Kurdish allies in Northern Syria, and does so not in spite of the threat of a Turkish massacre of those allies, but precisely in order to facilitate that massacre, at the personal “request” of the Turkish dictator.  As they are being massacred, beheaded, humiliated on video by happy Turkish “killing machines” (to apply correctly the term Trump applied repulsively to...

Of Kurds and Turds

A word to all the sell-outs, all the weak-kneed little children afraid to stand out there in the big bad world without their tribe, without their friends, alone with their consciences and their pride; to all those unprepared emotionally to face their fate, and their nation’s fate, without a team to side with and hide behind; to all who pretended to believe in...
