American Chaos: Why Trump Won

Nearly two years after his widely unexpected victory in the U.S. presidential election, one may be forgiven for wondering how Republican Donald Trump managed to defeat his much better qualified Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. Clinton, after all, had excellent credentials. She had been the American secretary of state for four years. And she had learned […]

Fahrenheit 11/9

Long before he was elected president of the United States, Donald Trump said he hoped that Michael Moore, the iconoclastic documentarian, would never make a movie about him. Famous last words.

Donald Trump: A Magnet For Disaffected Americans

Donald Trump’s hostile takeover of the Republican Party constitutes one of the most astonishing and seismic events in modern American history.

Donald Trump Touches A Raw Nerve

Donald Trump, the outspoken, anti-establishment Republican Party presidential candidate, has rightly been denounced for proposing that Muslims should be banned from entering the United States. It’s an offensive proposal that demonizes an entire community, panders to base instincts and runs counter to contemporary American democratic values. Trump, the master of politically incorrect dogma, issued his […]
