Heaven or Hell

April 9, 2016


The “Panama Papers” affair seems to become an unexpected letdown for its promoters. While they initially highlighted the presence of “unfriendly” politicians of the like of Russia’s Putin and Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez, their names turned to be loosely  involved through other individuals. Instead,  it happen to be found other names as owners of secret offshore […]

Newt Gingrich’s southern road

January 22, 2012


A couple of months ago I quoted Prof. Harold Bloom’s Omens of millennium, from 1996. In the Prologue of the book, Prof. Bloom advanced his vision of what a United States governed by Gingrich could become, and the reaction (much like the OWS movement) that may result. By that time, the then Speaker of the House was the rising star of the Conservatives and seemed unstoppable. As […]

Ahmadinejad’s tour and Clinton’s half-truths

January 10, 2012


In the board game of Geopolitics there are always two sides playing. Or more, obviously.

November 17, 2011


When I was asked to illustrate an article about the problems faced by Obama that render him overwhelmed I couldn’t help it but remembered the Time magazine’s cover that shocked me out back in 1978: A few days later, as I started reading a longtime procrastinated book by Harold Bloom (Omen of Millennium, translated into […]

Trotsky/Morozov: cyberactivism and paleo-conservatism

August 4, 2011


The prolonged crisis of Capitalism  in the core countries of the “globalized” economy has an ideological by-product in the extremist political rhetoric. Although it would be more appropriate to speak of the descent into barbarism by the publishers of the Right and the mass media. Thus, any attempt to sustain the social protection of population at […]

Sanford: save the gorilla!

January 30, 2010


It looks like South Carolina governor will make it through the end of his second term, despite his weakness for  an Argentinean girlfriend (I can empathize with him: I married mine). But who saved him from being impeached was his vice, Andre Bauer, with beauty pieces like this one: My grandmother was not a highly […]
