Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Pablo Picasso Femme aux bras leves- Tête de Dora Maar- 1936   As a nation, you’re certifiedly (is that a word?!) in deep trouble if and when Donald Trump is your most peaceloving man. But nevertheless, that is America today. It all harks back to the days when Trump was first -grudgingly and painstakingly- recognized as an actual presidential candidate. He campaigned as a man who would end the costly and neverending decades-old and counting US wars far away

MH17: Compromised From The Start

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Caravaggio I musici 1595-96   The investigation into the crash of the MH17 Malaysia Airlines plane in East Ukraine was always compromised, right from the start. The crash on July 17 2014 came shortly after the “Euromaidan revolution” in Kiev – which first began in November 2013 and culminated in the ousting of elected president Yanukovich on 23 February 2014, happily helped along by John McCain, Victoria Nuland and then-US ambassador to Ukraine (now ambassador to Greece) Geoffrey Pyatt

Square Minus Zero

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Gustave Courbet The village maidens 1852   I intentionally start writing this mere minutes away from Fed chair Jay Powell’s latest comments. Intentionally, because the importance ascribed to those comments only means we have gotten so far removed from what capitalism and free markets are supposed to be about, that it’s pathetic. The comments mean something for rich socialists, but nothing for the man in the street. Or, rather, they mean that the man in the street will get

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail David Hockney A Bigger Splash 1967   Just trying to find angles here. Trying to find people who could help Julian Assange. But so many of them are already dead.

How about Bob Marley? Or, you know, Johnny Cash? Joe Strummer? We lost so many voices, and
