Blessed Trump

There might be riots and declarations of war, but all intellectually and spiritually honest people must be rejoicing by Donald Trump’s brave decision of recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and hence preparing the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Not only he is keeping his word, he is changing…

Saudi Ally of All

Both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump are sending encouraging signals to Saudi Arabia: the first by inviting its King to Russia, the second by wanting to break the nuclear deal with Iran –  which was signed of course by Barack Obama in 2015. That Trump would keep his word and break Obama’s inheritance, we knew….

L’Italia che sprofonda/Sunking Italy

Il telefono suona alle 7 e come rispondo infuriata a mia madre e mi accerto che non è per  un’emergenza familiare riattacco. Due ore dopo, bevendo il caffè e fumando la mia solita sigaretta nel mio giardinetto tornato asciutto in seguito alla pioggia che si è abbattuta sulla Costa Azzurra la notte precedente, controllo le…

Charlie Gard’s Abuse

So little Charlie Gard is dead. This may sound rough in a world where advocates of human rights and enlightened doctors rule as the guardians of Good but the real question in the matter of keeping a doomed human being in the world is not wether it is right or not, but rather: is he…

Hard Power vs. Hard Power

This morning I read the news about Trump’s missile strike on the Syrian air base. Despite the horror of the chemical attack I was totally surprised Trump would turn against Assad, who is an ally for Russia–to which apparently the approach would be different to the previous administration. But then I started strolling on the chemical attacks…

First you shoot him and then you save him?

I honestly can’t get why we keep on seeing and reading that the terrorist who attempted to brutally murder as much as possible innocent civilians has been attempted to save after being shot and taken to hospital for care. They should take their heads off and show them hanged in the street where the attack…

A clean January

Hello readers, January is bizarely one of my favourite months: starting a new year is always exciting, there are many expectations all up to be realised; the cold weather makes enjoying being cozy in the house drinking hot drinks and watching films and series; cuddling under the hottest blanket is better then ever; spa is…

Italy for ExIt

No wonder most of the journals –  The Economist, the Financial Times, The Huffington Post to say a few of them – and media are talking about us, the Italians who have to go to vote and save themselves from a technical government and the disruption of their banks. Gosh we are meaning something after Brexit came true…

Go Donald!!! 

I spent months being attacked because I never doubted Donald Trump would have been the 45th President of America. And today, like and more the day after the BrExit, I am in utter joy for my power of forecasting. We risked a lot, world order was totally at stake. I wouldn’t have tolerated to see…

The strings of World Order. Today’s caveats and hopes

I feel very negative vibes in the air and another world war approaching depending on three major events. Strangely people are allowed to express their opinion in two of them, but I am aware of the fact that the two countries I’m going to talk about are not like the United Kingdom – which country…

The New Monsters

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin occupy securely the role of the new monsters, of the aliens plunged by the darkest meanders of history to populate the nightmares in our dreams. Let’s look deeper with Marco Tarchi’s analysis.

I could easily have been there…

But I was not.  It’s shocking to see a place where you have a lot of happy memories – on skates with my parents as a child, on romantic and chilly Sunday promenades etc. – shaken by a horror like this. It’s shocking to know that I could easily have been there with a group…

BrExit o BrexIn?

   http://www.boursorama.com/actualites/brexit-pourquoi-une-telle-conviction-du-maintien-sur-les-marches-et-chez-les-bookmakers-3f1e75f7bd26cad2f7bd611540e1c114 I bet YES!  Ieri sera ho fatto una scommessa con l’ex sindaco di Livorno, una persona che apprezzo molto nonostante la diversa partigianeria politica. Ovviamente abbiamo ben potuto scommettere su due esiti opposti: lui dice la Gran Bretagna resta nel’ UE, io dico che vince il sì per uscirne. A sentire anche adesso…

Indipendenza e forza: Israele

Buonasera a tutti, sono di ritorno da una bellissima settimana in Israele… Ho festeggiato la festa della memoria dei soldati e quella di indipendenza di questo fiero e difensivamente forte (non userei infatti più l’aggettivo aggressivo) Stato.  Tengo ancora a esprimere la mia simpatia nei confronti di una terra in cui Stato e religione sono…

My Way

Recensisco la biografia di Silvio Berlusconi scritta da Alan Freedman. Corrispondente a Milano per il Financial Times negli anni ’80, il giornalista lo aveva  criticato aspramente; eppure ne era affascinato. Come lo era dal Nixon travolto dal caso Watergate, così lo era dal controverso  uomo che ha dominato la vita economica e infine politica italiana…

La France c’est fini

Fabrice d’Almeida: A propos de la polémique sur le drapeau français sur Facebookhttp://www.huffingtonpost.fr/fabrice-d-almeida/a-propos-de-la-polemique-sur-le-drapeau-francais-sur-facebook_b_8570244.html    La bandiera francese sulla foto profilo crea polemica. Infatti non metterla ha un messaggio, che non è semplicisticamente quello opposto al trend di solidarietà – perche di moda si tratta stilisticamente sentendosi uniti e cliccando mi piace su ogni nuova foto…
