Trump’s Tariffs: An Answer or New Problems?

Pentagon’s New ‘Cold War’ Strategy: Peace…Or War Profits?

Iran Protests: Convenient Pretext To Kill The Nuclear Deal?

Protests in Iran have cropped up just as President Trump has the opportunity to kill the Iran deal by failing to waive sanctions by the January 13th deadline. The protests are providing a convenient pretext to justify killing the deal – long a Trump goal.

New Trump Executive Order: Good Move Or Global Asset Forfeiture?

Gold, Yuan or Crypto: What Will Replace Dollar Hegemony?

Another Flip-Flop: Trump Approves Lethal Arms To Ukraine

Will Nikki Haley Get Her Iran War?

A recent Wall Street Journal article has suggested that President Trump is planning to re-purpose US troops in Syria toward confronting Iran. If true, he would be veering far from any thread of legality or claim of self-defense. Will Nikki and her neocon coterie finally

Looking For Inflation In All The Wrong Places

Israel’s Capital: Who Decides?

President Trump is expected to announce today that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a controversial move that is sure to inflame the Muslim world and further alienate US allies. What purpose does such a move serve? Is there a
