[OP-ED]: The Art of the Bluff

Trump has made clear that the United States would respond to North Korean nuclear threats with a massive military strike, possibly involving nuclear weapons. EFE

How did we get here? Why does it appear that we’re on the brink of a war in Asia, one that could involve nuclear weapons? North Korea has had nuclear-weapons capacity for at least 10 years now. Have its recent advances been so dramatic and significant to force the United States to wage a preventive war? No. The crisis we now find ourselves in has been exaggerated and mishandled by the Trump administration to a degree that is deeply worrying and dangerous.

[OP-ED]: In his dealings with Trump, Comey was no hero

Former FBI Director James Comey departs a closed committee meeting which followed his much-anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on the FBI's investigation into the Trump administration, and its possible collusion with Russia during the campaign, in the Hart Senate office Building in Washington, DC, USA.

It’s now clear that James Comey is a highly capable lawyer with only one client: James Comey.

The former FBI director may not need an attorney. But he could really use a public relations firm to help him rehabilitate his image. 

That’s because, if you paid attention to Comey’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, you know that President Trump isn’t the only person with a credibility problem.

I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

President Donald Trump went into defensive mode on Wednesday against his "critics" and the media, while the Senate increased pressure on the White House to obtain responses about the president's controversial relationship with former FBI Director James Comey and the investigation he was leading into Russian involvement in the November election.

Trump Vs. Comey: Imprudence or conspiracy?

 05/17/2017 - 14:25
The House Intelligence Committee on May 16, 2017, requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) all documents that its former director James Comey elaborated on his talks with President Donald Trump. This request comes after The New York Times revealed the existence of documents produced by Comey in order to document his conversations with Trump. EFE / Michael Reynolds / Shawn Thew.

Following statements by former FBI Director James Comey about the existence of memoranda stating President Trump's attempt to intervene in an official investigation into the law, the question arises as to whether the President would be guilty of recklessness or whether there is indeed a conspiracy between his closest advisers and Russia’s government.

[OP-ED]: Trump’s Dangerous Confusion Can No Longer Be Hidden

 05/17/2017 - 11:19
Trump’s problems are not only with the public, his own party comrades have also increasingly begun to run away from him, fearful that his unpopularity could be as contagious as the Zika virus --and cost them an election. EFE

C’mon people, give the man some credit. Yes, it’s true that these past few days have been completely chaotic and disastrous for the increasingly confused and erratic Donald Trump. But hey, how many other presidents have squandered their political capital so completely in such a short period of time?
