Is This the Man with His Finger on the Button? Trump likes to add military props and lots of flags to his orations and speak of "his generals," but, beyond that, military affairs are of no evident interest to our tough-talking president who likes to style himself a "war president."

Trump's Kool-Aid President Donald Trump has clearly gone off the rails with his crazy suggestion that the public might try injecting potent disinfectants to combat COVID-19. Where did the world's most powerful elected official who now threatens war against Iran and Venezuela get this loopy notion?

Lies Won't Stop Covid-19 As the bodies of COVID-19 victims pile up from New York to New Zealand, politicians are waging a furious blame game over the pandemic. At first, President Donald Trump dismissed COVID-19 as a simple cold or flu and, in the best dictatorial tradition, scared into silence scientists and politicians who disagreed with him for over a month.

A Foretaste of the Horror of Biological Warfare The world is getting a grim foretaste of what biological warfare would be like. Those not cowering in terror in their homes would likely be amazed to learn that some of their governments are still churning out highly toxic chemical and biological agents in hidden factories.

Payback By Mother Earth? As the coronavirus spreads, our self-proclaimed "War Leader" has drawn his sword to defend endangered America. But Trump can't decide if he is waging war against a vicious virus or fear itself. For the first two weeks of the epidemic he dismissed it as a "hoax" spread by lefties.

Trump Does The Taj President Donald Trump's 36-hour whirlwind visit to India this past week was designed to show Americans just how adored abroad their president really is. Unluckily for Trump, his campaign stop at this behemoth nation of 1.3 or 1.4 billion proved a fiasco.

The Man Who Would Be King Last week, the Senate voted 55/45 for a new bipartisan War Powers Act to constrain military action against Iran. The Congress voted a similar act. Both are designed to start returning the right to make war to Congress, as the Constitution clearly intended. The president is not the Warlord-in-chief in spite of what he thinks.

Grand Theft Property Under Trump's "deal," Israel is to formally annex about 30% of the West Bank, the Arab area it conquered in the 1967 war. This will include all Jerusalem and an archipelago of Jewish settlements on the West Bank that were implanted to thwart any possible creation of a viable Palestinian state.

The Plagues From China A new plague threatens the West: the Wuhan Coronavirus. Officially named 2019-nCoV, the new virus has so far infected over 800 people in China. This latest plague erupted in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, population 11 million, which is located on the Yangtze River and is an important hub for national communications.

Ike Was Right As General Eisenhower warned, military spending has engulfed the nation. A trillion annual military budget represents just about half the world's military expenditures. The Pentagon is bustling with activity as if the nation was on a permanent war footing.

How the US Runs Iraq Never in the past half-century have we seen the Arab states so pathetically feeble. Never have we seen Israel so strongly guiding US Mideast policy, including the murder of Gen. Soleimani.

Afghanistan: Graveyard of Empires America's media, with a few small exceptions, has promoted the Pentagon's war against the Afghan people and totally covered up its atrocities and egregious lies. This war has become a giant, money devouring killing machine that boosts politicians and military contractors.

Frenchmen. To Arms! Trump does not know or care that France saved America from British mis-rule. He wants revenge because France which taxes nearly everything seeks to tax US IT firms like Google and Amazon. Trump considers this a personal affront.

Plundering Iraq Iraq remains a US-occupied nation. We hear nothing about the billions of dollars of Iraqi oil extracted by big US oil firms since 2003. For the US, Iraq was a treasure house of oil with 12% of world reserves. It was OPEC's 2nd largest producer.

Turkey Beats The War Drums Trump rightly calls the fracas in Syria "a stupid war." But many pro-war forces play on this tired, confused president who has gotten himself deep into the Syrian morass, a problem of largely American but also Turkish making.

Who Launched That Mystery Attack? Attacking Iran, even if just from the air, risks a much wider Mideast war just as the Trump administration which originally campaigned against "stupid" Mideast wars faces next year's elections. But the administration is under intense pressure from its pro-Israel base to go after Iran.

Burn the Amazon! Cut down the trees. Kill the wild animals. Burn the bush. Pollute the rivers. Pave over the grass. Raise more beef, pigs and poultry in cages. That's the credo of the new right. Hatred of Nature is an integral part of its politics. President Donald Trump is the high priest of such environmental vandalism. In his narrow land-developer mind, Nature is a left-wing liberal conspiracy.
