If you do not believe that power corrupts, watch the attitude of Congressman Charles Rangel of New York. The 80 year old man is still fighting for his “honor.” Sometimes, public figures do not know when to retire. What was seen as a “great” political career was more an appearence. This case confirms once again the corruption in […]
Karsai, double agent, can’t be trusted: A chameleon can only change its color, but can never change its skin
President Karzai has acknowleged receiving a secret bag of cash from Iran. This news confirms what many believe: that the Afghan president is a double agent who plays both for the West and Iran. For sure, Afghans are closer to the Iranians than the West. Karzai is a controversial figure, by his positions and also […]
The death of former Alaska senator Ted Stevens is like an earthquake. He was one of the most visible figures in American politics. Who could believe that this man who survived one airplane crash died on another airplane crash? Destiny is just something that we as humans cannot control. The 86 year old had a […]
The Democrats are certainly seeing the beginning of the end of their majority in Congress and the House. Sometimes your worst threat comes from within your own family.

Hamid Karzai has lost his mind. First, he was accused of committing election fraud. Now, he is threatening to join the Taliban if the US and the West keep pressuring him about fighting corruption and making reforms. Hamid Karzai certainly is putting himself in a vulnerable position. In old times, the CIA “took care” of a […]
While many see the fall of Senator Charles Rangel as the fall of a “Black political figure” (since America sees things in term of color), I see his fall as the end of a crook who happened to be Black and Democrat. It is unbelievable to hear that, still, he’s planning to run again for […]
Republicans and Democrats are quitting the congress. Many of them have announced that they are retiring. The question is, why now? Two explanations are possible: the American people are waking up after long years in a “coma” and people understand better that the American political system is a system of pure corruption.

Money to Africa for global warming: When a poor man gets a little money, his thoughts go off in ten different directions.
What appears to be a “good faith” pledge from the industrialized societies to poor countries to deal with the impact of global warming is pure bribery.
