Former President of the United States Donald Trump was arrested yesterday and arraigned in respect of thirty odd criminal offences. The criminal charges include misuse of company funds or failing to maintain proper books of account or charges of that nature regarding his companies, and paying hush money to two women with whom he is… Continue reading Trump’s arrest and arraignment-the image lingers

The effects of Trump politics in Irish society
It’s sad and frustrating to see the influence of “Trump politics” in Irish society over the last few years. Perhaps it is my imagination or misconception, but it seems to me, from comments on social media platforms online and protests like those going on in East Wall in Dublin concerning the use of a disused… Continue reading The effects of Trump politics in Irish society
Trump moving closer to a big, orange jumpsuit?
Donald Trump appears to have moved closer to a big-assed orange jumpsuit. The Department of Justice in the United States have appointed a special counsel to investigate Trump’s alleged crimes. And this guy is a career prosecutor who has prosecuted war crimes in Kosovo at The Hague. Trump has immediately sprung into action and has… Continue reading Trump moving closer to a big, orange jumpsuit?
The MAGA meltdown in the midterm elections
It is tremendously heartening to see the failure of Trump endorsed candidates in the midterm elections in the United States. “Victory has many fathers; failure is an orphan” is an apposite truism at this point in time. The fallout and criticism of Trump in the traditional media, social media, and-dare I say it-the Republican Party… Continue reading The MAGA meltdown in the midterm elections
The midterm elections in the United States-an appalling vista looms
The midterm elections are on in the United States next week and they are being labelled as a “fight for democracy” by the Democrats. If you were to listen to the vox pops of Trump and Republican supporters at the various rallies being held around the United States, you would have to agree. The level… Continue reading The midterm elections in the United States-an appalling vista looms
Perplexed by Irish support for anti-democratic narcissist, criminal, Donald Trump
I have watched closely for nearly two years now the work of the January 6 committee and the Department of Justice in the United States in attempting to bring Donald Trump to justice for some of his crimes, most especially his refusal to accept the outcome of the Presidential election race between him and Joe… Continue reading Perplexed by Irish support for anti-democratic narcissist, criminal, Donald Trump
The Majesty of the Law-part 2
I wrote yesterday about the majesty of the law as I saw it unfold in Ireland in the case of Jake Merriman’s convictions arising from an anti-lockdown protest in Grafton Street in February 2021. This morning I see online that new evidence in respect of Donald Trump’s criminal efforts to thwart the Department of Justice… Continue reading The Majesty of the Law-part 2
Trump-how does he get away with it?
I find it incredible, and frightening, that Donald Trump still appears to have such a large following and such enormous sway and influence over the Republican party in the United States. He was involved in a New York State investigation or prosecution into the business practices of the Trump business empire. The nefarious practices appear… Continue reading Trump-how does he get away with it?
Why I hope Trump recovers
I hope Trump recovers and contests the US presidential election. Not because I like the man but because I hate him and what Trumpism stands for. And I want to see Americans rejecting him and his narcissism, bigotry, racism, lying, tax evasion, sexual deviancy, braggadocio, vanity, cheating. This is a man who has boasted about… Continue reading Why I hope Trump recovers
Trying to Articulate How I Feel About Donald Trump
I’ve put off writing this blog post for a long time. My fear is that I will not be able to articulate, with sufficient accuracy and power, my low opinion of Donald Trump. But I must try now because if writing and communicating is about anything it must include being able to deal with the… Continue reading Trying to Articulate How I Feel About Donald Trump
