Emmanuel Macron dénonce la "propagande" russe


Alors qu'il accueillait Vladimir Poutine à Versailles, le nouveau président français n'a pas ménagé des médias, Russia Today et Sputnik, qu'il considère être des agents de propagande. S'il souhaitait resserrer les liens avec la Russie, son entrée en matière était pour le moins cocasse.

 "The Kremlin has denied involvement, and Putin on Monday reiterated that Russia never meddled in the French election. He did, however, defend his decision to receive the pro-Russian Le Pen in Moscow in late March, one month before the first vote in the two-round French election.

 Putin told reporters that Macron had not broached the subject of the cyberattack in their talks on Monday.

“We are quite capable of trying to move forward together in terms of the so-called Russian interference in the elections,” Putin said at a news conference in response to a question. “The issue has not been raised. The French president did not show any interest, and I even less.”

Donald Trump plus "Roi Lear" que "1984"?


Un angle intéressant abordé par Ron Charles dans le Washington Post de ce matin.

 "Consequently, the best literary precedent for what we’re enduring now is not the static image of Big Brother but the turbulent eruptions of King Lear. In Shakespeare’s immortal tragedy, composed around 1605, we see a kingdom entirely in thrall to the fitful mentality of its leader with his “unconstant starts.” As one of Lear’s daughters says, “The best and soundest of his time hath been but rash.” Or, as Politico observed 400 years later about our president: “Unpredictability . . . is not a quirk but a hallmark.”

Once you make the comparison between Lear and Trump, the similarities begin to line up like couriers at court. Most striking, the old king of Britain and the new president of the United States are rulers obsessed with personal devotion. Trump is, as he once noted in his typically Shakespearean way, “like, this great loyalty freak.”

Zbigniew Brzezinski meurt à 89 ans



Acteur, observateur et commentateur de la politique étrangère américaine, Brzezinski aura commenté jusqu'à la fin.

 Un témoignage sur le site de "The Atlantic":

 "He thought big, and he thought wisely. Most “respectable” figures in foreign-policy-land lined up behind the Iraq war. Brent Scowcroft — Brzezinski’s predecessor as National Security Advisor, for Gerald Ford, and then his successor in that same role for the first George Bush — was one exception. Al Gore, who gave a remarkable and prescient anti-war speech a few months before the invasion, was another. And Zbigniew Brzezinski, then in his mid-70s, was a third. After the war, he called it a “historic, strategic, and moral calamity,” and in his case that was not simply wisdom of hindsight.

    He continued to warn against needless hostility toward Iran, and about over-reach in the “war on terror.” A man who had been considered a hawk early in his career became a notable exponent of soft power, of strategic patience, of thinking ten moves ahead. We would be better off if more people had heeded him in recent years, or would study his example now."
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/05/zbigniew-brzezinski/528405/

 Un extrait de l'article du New York Times:

 "In “Second Chance: Three Presidents and the Crisis of American Superpower,” published in 2007, he assessed the consequences of that war and criticized the successive administrations of George Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush for failing to take advantage of the possibilities for American leadership from the time the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. He considered George W. Bush’s record, especially, “catastrophic.” And in the 2008 presidential campaign, he wholeheartedly supported Barack Obama.

Four years later, he once again assessed the United States’ global standing in “Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power.” Here he argued that continued American strength abroad was vital to global stability, but that it would depend on the country’s ability to foster “social consensus and democratic stability” at home."

Jared Kushner voualit des communications secrètes avec le Kremlin


Encore de nouvelles informations pour alimenter le moulin à rumeurs et l'enquête du F.B.I. sur l'entourage de Donald Trump.

 "Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.

 Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States for the communications."

Arche de Noé grandeur nature pour des créationnistes du Kentucky


Cette reproduction de ce que devait être l'Arche de Noé est la première pièce significative d'un vaste parc thématique. Il s'agit d'une initiative du groupe "Answers in Genesis" et on s'attend à plus d'un million de visiteurs cette année.

 "Ham and his brethren are creationists and Christian apologists who believe that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. (Contrary to scientists who say that it’s more like 4.5 billion years — or older.) Apologetics is a branch of Christianity whose adherents actively defend their faith, and Ham is a robust debater.

The author or co-author of 50 or 60 books — he’s not sure, a rare instance of uncertainty — he argues that the Bible is a historical narrative and that “the whole gospel message is found in Genesis.” He believes that dinosaurs prowled the planet alongside humans and that the biblical flood created the Grand Canyon. One of his books is titled “The Lie: Evolution.” He maintains that Noah labored seven decades to construct his vessel and was 600 years old when the storm surged. (By comparison, the AiG team took only seven years to build the Kentucky ark.)"

Ham — is it coincidence that his name is the same as one of Noah’s sons’? — began his career as, of all things, a science teacher in a tiny Australian town. But evolution didn’t sit right with him as the son of parents who subscribed to creationist beliefs."

Présidents et enregistrements secrets: Donald Trump souhait-t-il vraiment relancer cette pratique?


Franklin Delano Roosevelt a été le premier à enregistrer des conversations et Richard Nixon est le "champion" de cette pratique. Dans une menace à peine voilée à l'ancien Directeur du F.B.I., Donald Trump a référé à un possible enregistrement de leur rencontre. L'Actuel président devrait peut-être lire ce texte avant de se livrer à cet execice.

 "Moreover, as a student of history, Kennedy likely entertained thoughts of using the tapes in the service of memoirs he’d expected to write. And his interest in war and decision making, enhanced by his appreciation of Barbara Tuchman’s then-recent The Guns of August, which recounted the tragic onset of the First World War, might also have fueled his desire to keep track of how his administration handled itself in moments of crisis.

He certainly got that, and more. His tapes on the Cuban Missile Crisis represent a significant chunk of the 260 hours of conversation he recorded, 248 of them from meetings with groups large and small, and another 12 capturing telephone conversations with aides, legislators, and private individuals. The subjects they cover are among the most significant of the day: civil-rights crises in Mississippi and Alabama, superpower relations and the threat of nuclear war, and an escalating war in Vietnam."

Donald Trump, le budget et le "filet social"


C'est Mick Mulvaney et non Donald Trump qui a présenté les orientations budgétaires de l'administration. Selon Mulvaney, c'est la première fois qu'on oriente autant le budget en fonction des payeurs de taxes. Cette "compassion" pour les payeurs de taxes s'accompagne-t-elle d'une compassion pour ceux et celles qui seront privés de services? Le gouvernement fédéral se délesterait de sommes importantes qui devront maintenant être assumées, si elles le sont, par les états et plusieurs de états les plus démunis regroupent bien des électeurs de la base de Donald Trump.

 "Funding for Medicaid, the health-care program for low-income Americans and many people in nursing homes, would be cut by more than $800 billion over 10 years. Funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, a modern version of food stamps that provided benefits to 44 million people in 2016, would be cut 29 percent. In many cases, a higher burden of paying for anti-poverty programs would be shifted away from the federal government and onto the states."
