Dazed an Confused


City Images is astonished and alarmed that a US president attacks the free press, has not insisted that our allies respect human rights, does not promote democracy, or has not supported our US Constitutionally protected freedoms during his taxpayer-funded Asian trip.

On the last leg of his global journey, President Trump refused to condemn Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte for extrajudicial killings in his Asian nation and allowed him to shut down questions from reporters about Duterte’s human rights record.



Bookselling is the commercial trading of books, the retail and distribution of the publishing process. A book giving system takes this one step beyond.

The founding of libraries in 300 BC stimulated the energies of the Athenian booksellers. In Rome, toward the end of the republic, it became the fashion to have a library, and Romans continued this flourishing trade.

The modern system of bookselling dates from soon after the introduction of printing. In the course of the 16th century, the Low Countries for a time became the chief center of the bookselling world.

War on Truth


Democracy is not dead but it has taken a beating over the past year. As the Trump-Pence administration systematically increases its attacks on the news media, they must realize one way or the other that the US needs a free press.

A critical, independent and investigative press is the lifeblood of democracy. Freedom of the press is one of the foundations of liberty, and must never be restrained by any government officials.

Political Puppet?


Has a recent whirlwind Asia tour rekindled, re-enforced, intensified and purified some doubtful bromances?

Pull the string and he'll wink at you, he's your puppet
He'll do funny things if you want him to, he's your puppet
He's yours to have and to hold
Vladimir, you've got full control of your puppet

Pull another string and he'll kiss your butt, he's your puppet
Snap your finger and he'll turn you some flips, he's your puppet
Xi's every wish is his command
All he's gotta do is wiggle his little hand
he's your puppet, your big old puppet

He's a big fat toy, just a funny boy

Welcome Back POTUS


The Russia investigation and a growing sex scandal are waiting for @POTUS when he returns to the U.S. Investigators probe Trump knowledge of campaign's Russia dealings: sources https://reut.rs/2jhZlx2

Embattled presidents have often looked to foreign trips to get their groove back. George H.W. Bush on Donald Trump: 'I don't like him.' http://mashable.com/2017/11/04/george-hw-bush-donald-trump-blowhard/#Pje...

Does @realDonaldTrump hope his Asia jaunt creates a runway to get tax legislation off the ground?

Sex Crimes


This is an old problem which repeatedly surfaces, but this time there are even more allegations and accusations than ever that are being hurled at politicians, and celebrities alike as victims decide to speak out against the famous and infamous.

We are a nation of laws and there are many issues to consider. Perhaps we should demand our public servants pass a law waiving the statute of limitations, retroactively, for all cases of sex abuse.

Tax Faux


Taxes are a necessary evil and a mandatory financial charge imposed upon all US taxpayers to fund public expenditures. Could a failure to pay or a tax evasion be punishable by law? What's up with #TrumpTaxes?

Congress faux concern for the well-being of their constituents may no longer be fooling US voters. Is the tax bill going to be a great American solution or a huge problem? Why are GOP Senators planning to unveil a tax bill with an amazing race to pass this massive piece of legislation? Are they also trying to hide taxes from the US taxpayer?

Happy Anniversary?


Feliz Cumpleaños, 生日快乐, Happy Birthday @POTUS... It has now been a year since @realDonaldTrump began his transformation. Today is the first day of the rest of president Trump's political life as he marks the one-year anniversary since he upset Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

While some things remain the same from last year’s campaign, such as Trump’s critiques of the establishment and his Twitter tirades. Since taking the oath of office he has tweeted too many times including deleted and retweets. Trump has tweeted 2,461 times since the election. Here's a breakdown of his Twitter use https://usat.ly/2hQfS8a

I worked in Washington, DC as a GM/15-10 while serving under a Republican president, but I have no political affiliation. I can tell you that Trump has transformed our national capital into a city of cultural warfare and abuses the term “fake news” to alienate real journalism like no one has seen since Richard Nixon and remember what happened to him.

I'm no politician, but over the years as a veteran journalist, I have seen up close and personal some of the most famous as well as the infamous ones. From very real presidents to appalling dictators.

There is a difference between being president and acting more or less presidential. There is also a "Bigly" aka really huge difference between so-called reality TV and broadcast journalism. One is the real deal and the other can often be staged to fool viewers. Believe me, that I can tell you!

Get Back Democrat


Democrats get back to where they once belong
NJ voters clipped political bully Chris Christie's big fat coattails and elected Phil Murphy for a newer Jersey chapter in Trenton. https://njersy.co/2AiRAdy

Democrats seize Virginia governors race after Trump made a HUGE push for the losing Republican. Ralph Northam Wins the Virginia Governor’s Race https://nyti.ms/2jaTvxz

Political experts say these elections are seen as precursors of 2018 fights as Americans are realizing that lies and empty promises bring an odor and smell of graft and a form of political corruption.
