US President Donald Trump

Democracy Denuded

On closer reflection, both the charge and the comeuppance are epochal. And so it has been in the House of Representatives. Mr Trump has been charged with “incitement of insurrection” over the storming of Capitol Hill, home to Congress, on 6 January.

Status of Cuba

The subtext of the message must be that the Castro regime must end its support for international terrorism and subversion of US justice. As much is clear from Mr Pompeo’s supplementary to his message.

Emergency in DC

The impending change of guard at the Oval Office appears to have so derailed Mr Trump that his supporters but mostly he ended up disgracing the country. It is cause for alarm that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned armed protests are being planned in all 50 US state capitals and the national capital in the final days leading up to Mr Biden’s inauguration.

Mending fences?

Historically, China has claimed that Taiwan, a democratic and separately ruled nation, as its own territory. This rather expansionist diplomacy is of a piece with Beijing’s anxiety to test the murky waters of Hong Kong, over which it regained control after Britain’s exit in 1997.

Taiwan’s hopes

Stating that the US is committed to ensuring that Taiwan is not “bullied or overcome” by China, the official made it clear that there is bipartisan agreement in the United States for this position.

After Trump?

The Occupy Wall Street movement, Black Lives Matter, the Bernie Sanders campaign enthusiasts and countless social justice groups are not going away and will continue to aim to move the members of the public from identifying with the aggressor to identifying the enemy, which clearly still has a way to go in Corporate America

Hurting Trump with satire

The narrator tells listeners that, unlike Trump, Democratic challenger Joe Biden has a plan for the virus, while a second voice, in the background, reads the names of some of those who have died of the coronavirus.

Campaign games

“You sit behind a computer and do a debate ~ it’s ridiculous, and then they cut you off whenever they want,” Mr Trump has said.
