Divided Nation: President Trump “Declares War” on Ruling Elite as Media and Protesters Declare War on Him

By Joachim Hagopian, January 24 2017

Two extreme, very polarized paradigms have emerged as President Donald Trump takes command of the White House. After the shattered hopes and fraud perpetrated by America’s first African-American president, Trump supporters naively believe they’ve elected their “great white hope” of a president who will “make America great again,” taking at face value his “America comes first” rhetoric.

Obama’s “Pathological Legacy”: Heartless War Crimes, “Saving the Victims”. “Political Munchausen Syndrome” by Proxy

By Prof. James Petras, January 24 2017

The malady, common among political leaders who commit heartless crimes while craving popular adulation as heroes and misunderstood saints, is ‘Political Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy’ (PMSP). PMSP best explains the pathologic drive of politicians and policy makers who inflict relentless, systematic mass destruction and then intervene in a most theatrical manner to save a few victims.


The Revolt of the US Intelligence Community: Future Battles with President Donald Trump

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark, January 24 2017

Factionalism and fury are basic ingredients of the US Republic.

The Russians Are Coming

By Oliver Stone, January 24 2017

As the “failing” (to quote Trump) New York Times degenerates into a Washington Post organization with its stagnant Cold War vision of a 1950s world where the Russians are to blame for most everything — Hillary’s loss, most of the aggression and disorder in the world, the desire to destabilize Europe, etc. — the Times has added the issue of ‘fake news’ to reassert its problematic role as the dominant voice for the Washington establishment.
