The hypocrisy of Trump’s woes.

“The silent majority will reign!” or so is the cry emerging from a wounded, limp and lingering Trump campaign. The man whose infamous spell in office has been driven almost exclusively in the interests of securing reelection, according to his former national security advisor John Bolton, is having to come to terms with the factContinue reading “The hypocrisy of Trump’s woes.”

Trump’s Chickens coming home to Roost.

Strategy and craft have dominated the US political landscape over the past few years. So much so, that the depth of character of several Republican senators has been revealed to be decidedly shallow. Now, the chickens have come home to roost. The Trump cheerleaders have had a bucket of cold water thrown over their sleepwalkingContinue reading “Trump’s Chickens coming home to Roost.”

Trump’s “EPIC rally” turns to farewell tour.

Oh dear, what a flop. The Donald’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, proudly boasted “just passed 800’000 tickets. Biggest data haul and rally signup of all by 10x. Saturday is going to be amazing!”. But poor Billy Goat Brad suffered huge humiliation last night as the epic rally fell flat on its face in Tulsa, OklahomaContinue reading “Trump’s “EPIC rally” turns to farewell tour.”

A Trump of 1968

Donald Trump’s team are busy digging the trenches to set up the base to try and drive his re-election bid in November. It seems they are modelling the design on the same foundation that the disgraced President Nixon did. Law & Order, Law & Order, Law & Order. Let the dog-whistling commence. It is quiteContinue reading “A Trump of 1968”

The Red Scare was old news anyway.

On the North South podcast we were recently joined by Tadhg MacCionnaith, a self-professed Anarchist. For myself, Anarchism was something I was aware of, I thought I had a working knowledge of it, I thought I knew what it was, and as such I had a number of preconceived ideas about it, mostly characterised byContinue reading “The Red Scare was old news anyway.”

Silence in the courtyard, silence in the street, the biggest gobshite on Twitter is just about to tweet.

I have written before about Trump’s twitter escapades, I’m writing about them now, and I will write about them again. 45’s feed is an absolute goldmine if you’re jaw feels a bit stiff, trust me, a minute or two on the Don’s Twittersphere never fails to drop jaws. For anyone not arsed to read throughContinue reading “Silence in the courtyard, silence in the street, the biggest gobshite on Twitter is just about to tweet.”

Withdraw funding from the World Health Organisation during a global pandemic? I know just the man.

Here is the thing, the United States sits on a hegemonic throne, it has done so since the end of the second World War. And while the Cold War supposedly and superficially threatened this hegemonic throne in the form of a usurping USSR, that opposition upon reflection never truly endangered the U.S position as ideologicalContinue reading “Withdraw funding from the World Health Organisation during a global pandemic?

Trump: The personification and epitomisation of contemporary U.S diplomacy.

For many, the English lexicon fails to provide strong enough adjectives to adequately depict the emotions stirred by the 45th U.S President and Commander-in-Chief, Donald J. Trump. I for one would have chartered myself amongst this many, the man repulses me, perplexes me and indeed, outright fucking annoys me. These emotions I attribute to himContinue reading “Trump: The personification and epitomisation of contemporary U.S diplomacy.”
