Trump: America’s Gift to Totalitarianism [Updated]

Let’s all put on our Brutal Honesty caps for a moment, shall we — the ones with the Anti-Tribalism Ear Flaps, of course. Now, if we’ve all got our caps on snugly, let’s play the “Imagination Game” together, kids. Imagine if Jimmy Carter had canceled joint military drills with South Korea as an unsolicited goodwill gesture toward North Korea. Imagine if Bill Clinton...

Okay, now you can say you’ve seen everything

Here is the latest foreign policy statement from U.S. President Donald J. Trump: After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)! —...

Tyranny Unhinged (Updated)

Donald Trump, progressive demagogue extraordinaire, continues to follow through on his three-year-long effort to prove, to himself and to the world, that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue without losing a single supporter. Today, I see that Trump has not only reiterated his oft-stated buffoonish “confidence” that Kim Jong Un will “keep his promise” to Trump — though neither Trump nor...

Random Thoughts — with Pictures

Yesterday, there was a funny story about Muslim children at a school in Philadelphia — that would be the one in Pennsylvania, USA — singing a cute little song about crushing the infidels. Today comes the even funnier explanation of this charming video: it was merely an unfortunate oversight in the song vetting process. I can believe that. I can’t count how many...

You Know You’re a Failed Yes-man When…

Kim Jong Un, a fat baby who is cleverly playing up to the Infant President Donald Trump to string America along in his play for international legitimacy and permanent protection, has temporarily revived his tough guy negotiating position — probably a smart choice, given that this was the stance that scared Trump into making a million unrequited concessions to him in the first...

Squealers and Dealers (Updated: Trump Redefines Slime for the Ages)

Michael Cohen, longtime friend and legal fixer for the world’s most famous slime ball, has testified before the House of Representatives that his former boss was — shockingly — a slime ball.  The Trump cult’s defense of their slime ball against Cohen’s testimony — and I include a lot of elected Republicans among the cultists at this point — is that Cohen is...

Pre-Summit Hype, Communist Thug Style

There is some reporting this week that Kim Jong-un is trying to shore up his hold on power in an emaciated and dying “nation” by culling his population of anyone who still has money or food.  According to Andrew Jeong at The Wall Street Journal, Kim has exiled, imprisoned or executed suspected opponents of his diplomatic outreach to the U.S. and South Korea,...

Understanding the North Korean Dynamic

North Korea has just issued a “surprisingly blunt” warning to the world that they will not denuclearize until the U.S. has fully removed its “nuclear threat.” Here’s the key concept from the North’s statement: “The United States must now recognize the accurate meaning of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and especially, must study geography,” the statement said. “When we talk about the...

How Trump Was Used in Korea

Moon Jae-in is a lifelong, hardcore progressive, which is to say he is a neo-Marxist at heart, though he cloaks it in bland business suits and talk of “peace” and “democracy.” Many of his domestic policies since winning the election to replace impeached Park Geun-hye are standard-issue progressive “reform” assaults, such as imposing sweeping new regulations on private businesses. But nothing he has...

Trump: God’s Gift to the World’s Puny Men

One of the strange but predictable results of Donald Trump’s presidency is that in his ignorance he has found remarkably inventive ways to elevate and aggrandize some of the world’s most absurd and/or dangerous leaders. Leaving aside Vladimir Putin, Trump’s favorite bully, but a thug who was doing just fine without Trump’s help, the list of lousy men whose stock has risen under...
