When We Commemorate The Tragedy of 9/11, Why Do We Ignore The Tragedy Of The Iraqi Women And Children We Killed Because Of It?

by Evert Cilliers aka Evert Eden When it comes to evil, nobody beats Hitler. He committed the biggest mass murder of innocent humans in  all of history. Six million Jews, and that’s not even mentioning all the people who died because Hitler started the Second World War. But Hitler is not the only mass murderer…

With Trump Being Putin’s Puppet, And Most GOP Leaders Being Trump’s Puppets, Putin Now Owns The GOP

 by Evert Cilliers So our pussy-grabbing porn-star-banging supplier-stiffing majority-vote-losing Mexican-Muslim-hating Charlottesville-excusing family-separating racist Liar-in-Chief goes to Europe and trash-talks our allies.  But when he summits with Vlad the Journalist Killer (50 dead so far), Trump goes softer than a marshmallow on a stick over an open fire. A weak bully. Trump’s up-sucking to Putin was…

Listen Up, Davos: If You Don’t Have Redistribution, Regulations And Strong Unions, You Get Trump. It’s That Simple.

by Evert Cilliers The freer the market, the more people suffer. Look what happened after Bill Clinton signed the two bills that deregulated Wall Street with the repeal of Glass-Steagall (the firewall between regular and speculative banking) and the removal of derivatives from all oversight: Wall Street tanked the world. And who got bailed out?…

Now That Bill Cosby’s Been Found Guilty, Why Aren’t Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer And Donald Trump Under Arrest? Or Is There A Line To Be Drawn In Sexual Misconduct Between A Punishable Offense And A Guy Just Being A Jerk?

by Evert Cilliers There are the Bill Cosbys and Harvey Weinsteins and Matt Lauers of this world, and then there are the Al Franklins and the Aziz Ansaris. There are those who need to be in jail — Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Bill O’Reilly, Russell Simmons, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump — and those…

Now’s Your Chance To Become Fully Film Literate: Check Out The Ingmar Bergman Retrospective Running In Many Cities During His 100th Birthday

by Evert Cilliers aka Adam Ash I'm currently living in an Ingmar Bergman dreamland of cinematic ecstasy, because I'm watching 43 of his films in a retrospective at Manhattan's premier arthouse, Film Forum. Bergman would've been 100 this year, and this retrospective will be shown in some other cities in America and the world. Bergman…

What If Stuff Happened That Enabled Trump To Declare A Permanent State of Emergency In America, And Rule As Our Dictator?

by Evert Cilliers aka Adam Ash When President Trump took the office of President in the year 2017, few Americans could have predicted the huge changes to come under the rulers that would follow him — changes inspired by his unprecedented example. And few could have predicted that this man, who started with an approval…

The Cool (Obama) And The Uncool (Trump) In Our Presidents And People

by Evert Cilliers (original visuals by David Thall) I want to suggest a new fault line that runs through the American psyche. It's not about race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ideology (conservative or liberal, feminist or sexist), geography (north or south, east or west coast) or any of the attitudes about these basic differences. It's…

If Trump Represents The Worst Of Us, Does That Mean We’re Totally F-ed?

OK, so here we have a racist bigot, a sexist serial assaulter of women, an utter crook, who had to settle the fraud of Trump University for $50 million bucks, a braggart who cheats in his golf game, a man devoid of morals, a fat lump of loathsome excrement, and he is our president.

Sympathy For The Donald — A Deeply Wounded Devil

At least now, with the theory of Trump As The Deeply Wounded Man, you are reading something about Trump that you have never read before. I don’t think his father cared much about him as a young boy — or rarely showed it when Trump was say twelve or younger. And that explains Trump.
