The humble achievements of Donald J. Trump

The New World I’ll begin with a blunt statement: from a moral perspective, in the few short years between 2015 and 2021, the world was transformed. As a consequence of this transformation we now occupy a new world: a world where ethics and morality have been hollowed out, where integrity, honesty and intelligence are devalued, a world where the overload of information, opinion and belief leaves us disorientated and confused.

January 6th: Portrait of an American Travesty

The January 6th insurrection was an American travesty and the pinnacle of Trumpism. The vile, xenophobic, reactionary effects Donald Trump and his policies had on these Far-Right hooligans came to a deadly, super-violent head that day.

Russia vs Ukraine: War Crimes, Propaganda and the Scourge of Modern Warfare

Russia vs Ukraine. We hear so many reports of genocide and war crimes from the iron tentacles of the Mainstream Media you'd think Mariupol is comparable to Riga, Latvia circa 1941. And folks it's certainly far from that. I've seen the footage from Bucha, whom do we believe when anyone with a camera and youtube account these days are deemed journalists? The reports from "professional" news source, Reuters are at

The Proxy War in Ukraine

This is a Twitter thread posted by @NatalieStrecke which asks why "The Left" seems to always adopt a fixed "For/Against "stance for any set of given circumstances. We posted it in the light of a Twitter pile-on we experienced the other day relating to the Ukraine war. Apparently our efforts to point out that the US was up to its neck in building the situation that led to the war

A Love Letter to all Draft Dodgers

The New York Times is naming and shaming Ukrainian men who've fled the country rather than stay and kill Russians for Washington, because it was illegal for men of military age to leave, and because their countrymen are angry at them, and because it's the New York Times. They shamed Vova Klever, who said, "Violence is not my weapon." They shamed Volodymyr Danuliv, age 50, who said, "I can’t shoot Russian people." They shamed
