The «Corker» in U.S.-Russian relations

Merriam Webster’s English dictionary defines a «corker» as an «amusing person». When it comes to drafting legislation to «punish» Russia with sanctions over the situation in Ukraine, Tennessee’s Republican Senator and ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Corker certainly lives up to his name...

October 1, 2013: US Government Shut Down and Facing Default

America is facing a default in the coming days. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has said the government will have exhausted its borrowing authority by Oct. 17, leaving the United States just $30 billion cash on hand to pay its bills. In a letter to top congressional leaders, Lew warned that a repeat of the debt brinksmanship of 2011 could inflict great harm on the economy and that «if the government should ultimately become unable to pay all of its bills, the results could be catastrophic»... Obama urgently needs the ceiling raised again. Republicans will make him remember the unfulfillable promise given in 2011 to cut budget expenses. Experts are sure the US rating is doomed to go down in mid-October again. It’ll be a real blow for the government and private business, because ratings influence interest rates and the value of financial instruments (including bonds). The performance staged by Congress in October 2013 is to be no less captivating than the one the world saw in 2011.

A Stillborn Second Term? Obama Atop a Non-Viable System

In US history, second presidential terms have had a pronounced tendency to disappoint. The causes have ranged widely, from political scandal (think Nixon and Watergate) to personal scandal (think Clinton and Lewinsky) to a loss of credibility (think George W. Bush). But the upshot has been quite similar in all cases: an inefficacious second term of office. What would efficacy for President Barack Obama's second term mean, and how likely is he to accomplish it?..

Good Luck… and Just at the Right Time

Out of this election came an immense development - a man of colour won twice... Why is this so important? Because US demographics are changing so that now almost 30 out of 100 Americans are non-white. With the exception of Florida Cuban Americans, all will solidly support a Democrat of colour...

The Eclipse of US Politics, and its Global Consequences

What we are witnessing is the eclipse of US politics. The political parties are fading away as centers of policy formulation, and are willfully stripping the government of its powers vis-a-vis business corporations. In pursuing this course, US political leaders are losing relevance as points of appeal. Financial crises will reoccur, commodity prices will gyrate out of control, global warming will imperil our ecosystem, all thanks in large part to US policies - but the international community won't find any US politician who is able to do anything about it...

What If The Tea Party Wins In 2012?

My concern is what the US, Canada and indeed the world will look like under a Republican president and, it almost follows, a Republican Congress... I do not believe that the Tea Party will actually select the next Republican nominee but the nominee will still owe it allegiance and will go against its wishes only at great peril... With the Tea Party, Big Business, and the Defence Contractors calling the shots, a catastrophe is guaranteed with only the extent of it in question...

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan...
