Hanoi Jottings Always angry and humorless, totalitarianism doesn't tolerate word plays or any sort of verbal ambiguities. Outlawing witticisms, it insists on righteous bombast. Since Vietnamese must constantly amuse each other with words, they chafed under such an inhuman regime. With Communism's slackening, the Viet tongue is regaining its playfulness and vitality, and you can see this even on shop signs.

Wombward Vietnamese have never taken any internationalist ideology seriously, especially Communism, a nightmare dreamt up by rootless minds. Protective of family and race, of all those who came from the same womb, they've fought against the Chinese, Mongolians, French, Americans and even against each other, because, well, their foes were deemed as fraudulent Vietnamese.

Empire Idiots By now, only a cretin can fail to see that the American Israel Empire is working nonstop to deform the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and, frankly, the rest of the world. Until it implodes, we can neither see straight nor even be ourselves.

History Contested, Courage Wasted and Perfidy Rewarded The United States has a frightful record of sowing chaos and destruction in countless places, and though it has routinely failed to win wars, its military contractors always make tons of money, so all is well, according to the American ruling elite. War is America's main business.

Siurana, Charlottesville and Barcelona The more alert among us are catching on that there's a series of false flags designed to sow divisions within society, increase support for more surveillance and policing and, often, intensify hatred of Muslims. All these goals benefit the American Israel Empire, of course, so until this collapses, all of us will continue to be run over. Preaching love, they sow hate relentlessly.

George Orwell and Mohammed Atta Were Here Though I'm sitting in this sun bathed apartment, with palm trees just outside, dark plots are being hatched, apparently, for on the wall, there's a Putin calendar, and the music is the Algerian Cheb Hasni belting out "My Way," then "Saddam," an homage to the late Iraqi leader. Not quite believing my eyes, I stare at a plate of potato frittata and blood sausage. Oh, the endless terrors! The Mossad! The C.I.A.!

On Nationalism Nationalism is simply the love of one's language, culture, history and heritage, one's very identity in short, but as wielded by an empire, nationalism becomes a murderous tool to violate one nation after another. The American empire is destroying the American nation.

Sam Adonis, El Santo and Donald Trump Though American politicians are phonies, and American elections are farcically rigged, Americans continue to rabidly support their favorite political puppet, whether Obama, Hillary, Sanders, Trump or whoever. Going berserk over each cartoon savior or villain, most Americans don't even know they're being force-fed lucha libre.

Obscured American: Rudy Dent a 9-11 First Responder In 2001, I was there to see the third building come down, and what caught my attention were not the explosions, because I'm used to explosions. I spent two and a half years in Vietnam, so I'm used to explosions, but when I saw my fellow firefighters jump in a panic reaction to the loud noise of an explosion, which they're not used to, and they're not trained for, that's what shocked me.

Obscured American: Manon the Aspiring School Counselor I would welcome people for citizenship, for those who are already here and those who want to enter the country. I don't think it would be an issue except there aren't enough good jobs available. Personally, I don't see what the issue would be to just allow people into the country, whether they are refugees or not.

Poland Looking West What threatens Poland also endangers many other countries, and that's the subjugation of local needs to a master scheme cooked up far away by an elite that owe no allegiance to any nation. Going after immediate benefits, Poland risks long term damage. To avert disaster, it will need to stop supporting Uncle Sam's belligerence, appeasing Brussels and antagonizing the Kremlin.

Germany to Introduce Comfort Women The only way to solve a refugee problem is to stop generating refugees. Since arriving in Germany 3 - months ago, I've made this point over and over. Most Germans, though, are only focused on the issue of accepting or rejecting refugees, not on the root cause of it, which is America and Israel's deliberate destabilization of much of the Middle East and parts of North Africa.

Vietnamese in Germany Most immigrants and all refugees are forced to leave everything they've known because they can no longer tolerate their native land. If the world is swarming with refugees and desperate immigrants, it just means that life has become impossible for so many, in so many places. Count yourself lucky if you're not among them, but don't dismiss the distinct possibility.

Prized Singapore China's expanding encroachment into the South China Sea is often explained only in terms of oil, natural gas and fishing rights, but it's the sea lane next to Singapore that's most at stake. Without its navy nearby to contest that choke point, China is most vulnerable to disruption of oil deliveries from the Middle East.

Germany Against Itself Just as with Germany's self-destructive fealty to the US and Israel, there is no frank discussion here about its refugee policies. Those with questions or grievances, then, are forced to become increasingly strident as they scream from the fringe. Should xenophobic outbursts explode down the line, they can be traced back to this initial suppression of dialogue.

Postcard from the End of America: Jack's Famous Bar in Philadelphia We have a rogue government that respects no law, domestic or international. It violates every other country's sovereignty while puncturing its own borders. It creates terrorists while pretending to fight terrorism. It extols global stability while generating millions of war and economic refugees. It turns all ideals, freedom, democracy, equality and sacrifice, into perversions. It kills millions of people.
