The Charade of Trump’s State of the Union Speech

State of the Union SpeechThe least popular American president; Donald Trump, whose popularity hovers around 30%, took the podium to address the American people about the state of the union on Tuesday January 30th. Although the words of the speech were very carefully selected, and Trump seemed to be intensely coached to be serious, he could not completely hide his narcissistic, self-aggrandizing conceited arrogant personality. He addressed his audience in lofty mannerism with a raised chin and smirky smiles, clapping for himself and at times inviting others; Democratic half of the audience, to clap for him.



Special Israel

American JewishOne of my “favorite” American Zionists is David Harris, Chief Executive Officer of the American Jewish Congress (AJC). I like David Harris because (1) for some unfathomable reason, he, or his office staff, have been kind enough to keep me on his mailing list and (2) he consistently puts forth the ideas which reflect the Zionist establishment’s worldview. Pay attention to Mr. Harris and you will always know how America’s Zionist leadership sees things, at least publicly. 



Not Anti-Semitism but less Sympathy for Israel

Star of DavidReports on Anti-Semitism are booming. Most of these stories are produced by Zionist organizations, the Israeli government or close affiliates to both of them pretending, however, non-partisanship.  Just recently the Israeli Ministry of Diaspora Affairs released the 2017 Anti-Semitism Report that showed an increase in racist incidents against Jews, especially in Western Europe such as France, the UK, and Germany.



Contextualizing Sexual Harassment

Sexual HarassmentSigmund Freud published his book Civilization and Its Discontents in 1930. Having witnessed World War I, Freud knew that discontent was part and parcel of the human condition. The question he sought to answer was why that was so. 



‘Seven Forbidden Words’

CensorshipThere is a scene in George Orwell’s famous dystopian novel 1984, where the protagonist, Winston Smith, is having a conversation with a philologist by the name of Syme. Syme is involved in a government effort to restructure the language spoken by the novel’s upper classes, those who have power or work for the ruling party. The language is called “Newspeak.” Syme’s job is to get rid of dangerous words.
