Cancer with political clout

Cancer with political clout

By Robert C. Koehler A suicide bomber inflicts hell at a concert hall in Manchester, England that’s full of children, as though that was the point — to murder children. The horror of war . . . well, terrorism . . . doesn’t get any worse. And the media, as they focus on the spectacle of what happened, as they cover the particulars of the tragedy — the suspect’s name and ethnicity and apparent grievances, the anguish of the survivors, the names and ages of the victims — ...

Mad About THAAD: An Untimely Decision

Mad About THAAD: An Untimely Decision

  by Mel Gurtov   The US decision, supported by the South Korean government, to deploy an antimissile system known as THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) may be one of the most thoughtless strategic moves in a generation. The official US argument is that close-in defense against North Korean missiles is necessary. But the deployment has resulted in the following: an argument in China for increasing its nuclear weapons stockpile; an incentive in North Korea for moving ... Full Story

Ethics: Trump already sees himself above law

Ethics: Trump already sees himself above law

by Lawrence M. Hinman Ethics is about flourishing, about developing both the personal characteristics and the social conditions that allow individuals to live full, satisfying lives together. When it functions at its best, ethics is largely invisible: individuals live good lives together, trusting one another and cooperating in ways that would be impossible without such internalized social norms.

Trump does Wall Street’s bidding

Trump does Wall Street’s bidding

betraying campaign promises By Steve Benen More so than any modern Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump positioned himself as an opponent of Wall Street.

Trump Botched Raid, Seal Killed

  During Botched Raid in Yemen, Trump Apparently Took the Night Off Not only was the raid botched from the word "go," but the incompetent toddler who authorized it didn't even bother to show up inside the Situation Room to monitor the crisis. BOB CESCA FEB 3, 2017 Perhaps one of the most infuriating aspects of the Donald Trump presidency is the insufferable short-term memory loss of his voters. After the disastrous eight years of the Republican administration ... Full Story

A Leninist in the White House: Heavy-handed Steve Bannon

By Aidan Coffey New Voices columnist President Trump’s temporary ban against Muslim refugees and immigration produced one of the largest waves of protests this country has seen since the Vietnam War.  While the media focus  on the botched rollout of Trump’s executive orders and the left loudly proclaims its solidarity with Muslim-Americans, few pundits have bothered to look beyond the façade.  Everything Donald Trump has done so far — the wall, the Muslim ban — ...
