Give Nixon, McCain, and Bush Some Blame for Trump’s Campaign Finance Trouble

Give Nixon, McCain, and Bush Some Blame for Trump’s Campaign Finance TroublePresident Trump has been trying to blame the Democrats for the effort by federal prosecutors to depict payoffs to two women as campaign finance violations. If only it were that simple. Trump is correct to perceive campaign finance law at the heart of the matter. Actually, though, any accurate accounting of blame for it has to include three Republicans — President Nixon, Senator McCain, and President George W. Bush. It was Nixon who, on February 7, 1972, signed into law the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971. In his statement, Nixon declared that the law “limits contributions by candidates and their families to their own campaigns.” He added that, “By giving the American public full access to the facts of political financing, this legislation will guard against campaign abuses and will work to build public confidence in the integrity…

The Washington Post All But Invites Venezuela’s Destruction

The Washington Post All But Invites Venezuela’s DestructionTamara Taraciuk Broner of Human Rights Watch (HRW) and Johns Hopkins professor Kathleen Page took to the pages of the Washington Post (11/26/18) to whitewash Donald Trump’s successful efforts to make Venezuela’s economic crisis much worse.  Appropriately enough, at the end of the piece, the Post recommended four other articles (11/23/18, 9/11/18, 6/20/18,8/21/18) that either attacked Venezuela’s government or stayed conspicuously silent about the impact of US economic sanctions. Propaganda works primarily through repetition. The vilification of Venezuela’s government in the Western media has been relentless for the past 17 years, as Alan MacLeod pointed out in his book Bad News From Venezuela. NGOs like HRW play an important role in framing the Western imperial agenda from a supposedly “independent” and “humanitarian” perspective, as dramatically illustrated after the death of Sen. John McCain (FAIR.org, 8/31/18) when several HRW officials joined the US media in sanctifying an overtly racist warmonger. In contrast,…

Trump’s Luck, Cold Wars, and Trouble in the Americas: The World in 2019

Trump’s Luck, Cold Wars, and Trouble in the Americas: The World in 2019By this point in his presidency, George H. W. Bush was preparing for battle with Iraq, Bill Clinton had begun bombing Serb targets in the former Yugoslavia, George W. Bush had invaded Afghanistan, and Barack Obama was about to encounter the Arab Spring.Donald Trump, by contrast, has been lucky.That is the conclusion of a report released Monday by the Council on Foreign Relations ranking the conflicts that could most threaten the United States in the coming year. The study notes that the Trump administration “has yet to confront a serious international crisis in which the president has had to wrestle with the agonizing decision over whether to commit the United States to a new and potentially costly military intervention.”“It is reasonable,” the report’s authors write, “to assume that it is only a matter of time before the Trump…
