Elections Canada 2019: Justin's battered beanstalk We left off our saga of Justin and the Beanstalk with the young wunderkind's triumph over the giant ogre (Prime Minister Harper), as he swept away the broken democratic shards littering his kingdom in the sky, to the cries of joy from the Canadian peasants.

Review: Belen Fernandez, Exile: Rejecting America and Finding the World Fernandez's second book could be called The imperial messenger: Thomas Friedman at work Part II, or This is Not a Travel Book. The subject of her first book delightfully keeps popping up at conferences, interviewing American puppets, his spirit haunting her from the New York Times opeds exhorting Africans to tend their gardens, saluting Colombian ex-president Uribe.

Review: Bergdahl: Reluctant soldier - confused peacenik Bergdahl's desertion (he eventually ignored his defence lawyer and pleaded guilty) set in motion a domino effect on a massive scale, but not the one the prosecution tried to pin on him: that B's desertion led to soldiers' deaths. The early angry accusations soon melted under examination, leaving B's actions as a butterfly effect in a chaotic world.

The Bible: Recipe for genocide or junk sculpture? Plotz starts out believing vaguely in the existence of God, but not observing the rituals. During his 365 days of plodding through the book, he comes to admire the rituals, and starts observing shabat. But he's not at all happy with the God the OT reveals. "I leave the bible as a hopeless and angry agnostic. God made me rational so i must use the tools to think about him. Submit him to rational and moral inquiry. And he fails

US-Canada and Venezuela's Bay of Pigs The Guri computer system which broke down was bought from ABB Canada, a subsidiary of ABB Switzerland and Sweden, in 2005, to interface with an existing centralized control system that was installed by SNC Lavalin. (yes, the SNC Lavalin)

Working class heroes: Review of Kovalik's 'The Plot to Control the World' Kovalik doesn't pretend to document all the US crimes (read William Blum for that). Rather, in 'The Plot' he takes you on a world tour to Eurasia, Africa and the Americas for key election rigging moments, moments that he connects with viscerally, and brings to life.

The Donald's bedtime storybook: First stop, Venezuela, next stop Iran The attempted coup in Venezuela looks like it might be the brainchild of Zalmay Khalilzad, now back in the American jihad driver's seat. ZKh's counterinsurgency thoughts in The Envoy about Iran fit the bill.

Trump's gift to Syria: Peace on Earth, good will toward men Finally Trump is doing something he promised on the campaign trail: "Russia wants to get rid of ISIS. We want to get rid of ISIS. Maybe let Russia do it. Let them get rid of ISIS. What the hell do we care?" The 'deep state' was listening in 2016, and prepared their cold-war arsenal, Russiagate ...

Banker hegemony: Pax Lemmus So are the banksters all right after all? Nope. All there is to show after 400 years is a kind of Pax Hamstera, or better, Pax Lemmus. The horrors of the 19th-20th centuries, now going off the horror chart in the 21st century. We run faster and faster, inventing and marketing ever new gadgets...

9/11 consequences - intervention trap The new, brash, young (31) de facto Saudi leader Muhammad Bin Salman tours the world, insisting in meetings with western leaders that they must work closely with the Saudis to fight terrorism, even predicting publicly that more terror attacks will happen if Saudi Arabia is not treated with respect and given the leading role in fighting terrorism.

Back to the future: From Jackson to 'the Donald' Who in US presidential history even comes close to Trump? While corporations run America for all intents and purposes, it has been unusual for a hardcore businessman to take the helm. And one who bragged of making and losing and making a fortune? Andrew Jackson (1767-1845, president 1829-1837) cries out as Trump's prototype.

Trump's Grand Strategy from Quebec to Singapore How to explain the welter of contradictions in US politics these days? *Trump's enthusiasm for peace with Russia vs his acceptance of Cold War II with Russia, launched even as Trump declared victory in 2016. *Trump's virtually declaration of war against the mouse, Canada, next door, with his cutting insult to Justin Trudeau as weak and dishonest, as he left the summit early and refused to endorse its free trade plea...

ISIS, Hamas and Zionism: Enemies or allies? Just as the US washed its hands of al-qaeda when they stopped following the US script, when Hamas showed itself as an effective resistance movement and a competent governing party, Israel switched to persecuting it, tacitly defending the Palestinian Authority. Things were catching up to Israel. It had its wayward Hamas and now a terrifying, if not particularly competent, more extremist Islamist group on its doorstep.

Kayhan interview: Shia arc or Zionist arc? Iran threatens no country nor does it try to direct political activity of others. The same specious claims were used against the earlier bete-noire of imperialism, the Soviet Union, which, in contrast to the US, did not engage in coups and election interference in dozens of countries since the end of WWII. Such claims are a mere distraction from the aggressive agenda of imperialism to control the world.

Review: Red Hangover: Legacies of 20th century Communism Ghodsee uses her travels, studies, lectures to audiences east and west to test the waters of eastern Europe today. This fresh approach to documenting history through the eyes of both participants and sympathetic observers is more like reading a page-turner spy novel, full of often misunderstood heroes and villains, crafty confidence tricksters and lots and lots of victims. Who needs fiction? You enter the theatre of life,

Review Aftershock: A Journey into Eastern Europe's Broken Dreams Feffer is one of the new breed of journalist-historians, postmodern in his goal of seeing history through the eyes of those living it. His inspiration is surely the Belarusian Svetlana Alexievich, awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature "for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time". Her equally epic Second-hand Time follows Russians and other (ex)soviets from the 1980s to the 2010s.

Fighting imperialism from Damascus to Tehran Now Israel faces increasing world condemnation for its crimes against Palestinians in their peaceful Great March of Return, a revived Assad in Syria, a strong Hezbollah, fresh from its election victory in Lebanon, and a battle-ready Iran.

Critiquing PCness: Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life We need a shared belief system as a code for mutually predictable relations, expectations, desires allowing for cooperation, peaceful competition. We need a clear value system because both perception and action require a goal. For this to work, we need to take responsibility to strive for goals consistent with reality. Hey, this is Islam or Christianity!

2018 marks three Afghan anniversaries 1978, 1988 and 1998 were fateful turning points which resounded around the world. All centred around Afghanistan. Hollywood, always a useful barometer, was in sync in a curious way.
