Subservient State; Democracy Thrives

Democracies thrive when the State is subservient to the People; once the State’s first choice is to save itself you know it has failed. The process requires an enduring cast of characters and there have been many colorful characters over the decades wearing at the core of this Nation’s structural order however let’s consider, for now, the most prominent, our chief caricatures, the preeminent fixtures of the statists, the most recognizable being none other than John McCain and, more and more frequently, the spit-bucket man himself, California’s Massachusetts-born carpet bagger, Adam Schiff. The character of a People is evidenced by the actions of its Government, the actions by those who hold the Peoples trust; this is a most humbling measure!

The Drama that is DACA

The Drama that is DACA and the Dishonest-Truths of those who sell it! A few thoughts to consider:

1. The “We are a nation of immigrants” is one of those statements that at first blush sounds so poignant and relevant, a complimentary monument to the Nation’s structure and its people who left everything with the hope of becoming a part of a most powerful promise occurring never intending or hoping to become separate and apart from it. There was a time when the richness of the bond caused it to be integral to the promise, wrapped in and indistinguishable from the body of absolute truths so much so that you intuitively understood that objection to its richness was unthinkable; not anymore.

Israel: Two-State Moving Closer?

To better understand the importance of the President’s move to push forward with relocating the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem one needs to understand the history of Palestine particularly as it relates to the Israelites (historical geography and religious terms) and the historically temperamental role the British played, largely for preservative-economic reasons, in the mock-up of present-day Middle-East.

Today, oddly enough, much of the plenum-in-opposition to a two-state solution maintains the very same preservative-economic motives. Even if resting on the historical and religious arguments it’s quite difficult to substantively object to Israel’s right to a homeland securitized by International endorsement which is, by the way, no less the case for non-Jew’s/Arab’s and while the U.S. has, since 1948, supported and has come to represent the most conspicuous solution-advocate and, we should note, without the kinetic forces of other influential States.

Trump on Asian Tour!

Beneath the regalia of the President’s Asian perimeter tour lies a narrowing field of options for addressing an expanding risk. It is highly appropriate and extraordinarily timely for the President to press the flesh with the area Leadership; hands on, eye to eye, particularly given Mr. Trump’s remarkable skills for tactical-reading.

The President is about to confirm that his hunch relating to N. Korea and the region are, in fact, a functional reality:

A New Cold War Masks Predators

There’s nothing quite like a good manufactured-crisis to stir the concerns of the public and fill the vaults of war-making industries. This country has perfected the art of political-alchemy where warring factions fabricate stories in secret which are then sold, by a defiantly rogue media apparatus, to its trolling audience where the fact of what should be factual are largely irrelevant.
