Trump victory: A blow to the non-elite elite

From hacked email troves we received a glimpse of the bankrupt values of Washington journalists, lawyers, politicians, lobbyists and wealthy donors.

War clouds are gathering; a hard rain is going to fall

War does not sleep. Wars often seem to come out of nowhere, as unlikely events ignite long-simmering disputes into global conflagrations. The instigators often are weaker attackers who foolishly assume that more powerful nations wish peace at any cost, and so will not react to opportunistic aggression. Unfortunately, our late-summer calm of 2016 has masked a lot of festering tensions that are now coming to a head – largely due to disengagement by a supposedly tired United States.
