In a reaction to the launch, Abe condemned the test, calling it a threat to Japan and the international community. He also stated that Tokyo would monitor the situation with its partners. A vice director-general… Continue ->

Impeachment Derangement

Published 2019-11-30 06:15:27 by Ronald Thomas West in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Politics, Russia, Ukraine, United-States

^ Trump’s Impeachable Offense So, Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to drop criminal investigation into Burisma (had the prosecutor fired) that would (almost certainly) have implicated his kid (and himself for using the power of his office) in a typical politically corrupt get rich(er) quick scheme. Then, Trump had the audacity to pressure Ukraine to reopen the investigation as a campaign tactic, and according to the morons pushing this s**t through the House of Representatives, this is an impeachable offense. So, we have a scenario where one corrupt moron, that is Trump (and Republican minions) is up against another corrupt moron,… Continue ->

Michael Bloomberg Enters the Race. Why?

Published 2019-11-30 01:30:14 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, United-States

In the year of campaigning since the 2018 midterm elections, the race for the Democrat Party presidential nomination is as confused as ever. As of this writing, there is no clear front runner with Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and now Pete Buttigieg all polling at or about 15% nationally followed by several also-rans. Former Vice President Joe Biden is the most electable of this group. Despite age and scandal, Biden’s campaign remains stubbornly alive. Biden has fended off serious challenges from Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) and the above-mentioned Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts). National polls place him at or near… Continue ->

Trump Designating Drug Cartels as Terrorist Organization Is Aimed Against Mexican President

Published 2019-11-30 00:30:10 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Latin-America, Mexico, United-States

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a patriotic socialist, in his first year of government rejected a war against the powerful narcotic cartels. However, he now faces a dilemma in the face of Washington’s intentions to label the cartels as “terrorist” organizations. Obrador instead of taking the fight to the cartels, had chosen to focus his efforts on implementing his strategy, based on persuasion rather than confrontation, despite the high political cost. On November 26, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he intends to designate international drug cartels as terrorist organizations. This is highly problematic as the decision could give… Continue ->
