De Grecia a Francia y China, el nacionalismo vuelve pisando fuerte

(0) Comments | Posted July 2, 2015 | 7:41 AM

WASHINGTON – En China, un desfile militar este año no celebrará el triunfo del comunismo, sino el septuagésimo aniversario de la rendición japonesa durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El nacionalismo chino (y el odio histórico hacia Japón) resulta más poderoso que la ideología marxista.

En Francia, los ultra-nacionalistas...

From Greece To France To China, Nationalism Is Back In A Big Way

(148) Comments | Posted June 30, 2015 | 7:02 PM

WASHINGTON -- In China, a military parade this year will commemorate not the triumph of communism, but, rather, the 70th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War II. Chinese nationalism (and historical hatred of Japan) will trump Marxist ideology.

In France, right-wing ultra-nationalists support the referendum that Greek's...

Πλανήτης Πολιτική: Οι Μπους επέστρεψαν

(0) Comments | Posted June 16, 2015 | 3:02 PM

ΟΥΑΣΙΓΚΤΟΝ – Οι επατέρες της Αμερικής μισούσαν αυτό που ο Τόμας Τζέφερσον ονόμαζε « Μια τεχνητή αριστοκρατία που στηρίζεται στον πλούτο και την οικογενειακή κληρονομιά ». Οπότε μάλλον θα πρέπει να αναρωτηθούμε πως θα τους φαινόταν η Μπάρμπαρα Πιρς Μπους , η 90χρονη, ασπρομάλλα, γαλαζοαίματη αρχηγός της οικογενειακής δυναστείας των...

부시가 돌아왔다

(4) Comments | Posted June 16, 2015 | 2:11 PM

미국을 건국한 사람들은 토마스 제퍼슨이 '부와 출생에 기반한 인위적 귀족'이라 부른 것을 증오했다.

그러니 그들이 바바라 피어스 부시를 어떻게 생각할지 궁금할 수밖에 없다. 뉴욕의 부유한 교외 라이에서 자란 그녀는 90세이고, 머리는 새하얗고, 신랄한 말을 하는 부시 왕조의 귀족 여성 가장이다.

그녀는 한 대통령(프랭클린 피어스)의 먼 친척이고, 한 대통령(조지 허버트 워커...

'Jeb!' entra na corrida presidencial americana: Os Bush estão de volta

Os fundadores dos Estados Unidos odiavam o que Thomas Jefferson chamava de "aristocracia artificial que tem como base a riqueza e o lugar de nascimento".

Assim, você deve estar se perguntando o que eles achariam de Barbara Pierce Bush, a matriarca sangue azul da dinastia Bush, em seus 90 anos,...

Ein schweres Erbe: Der Bush-Clan ist zurück

(1) Comments | Posted June 15, 2015 | 10:15 PM

Die Gründer Amerikas hassten, was Thomas Jefferson eine „künstliche Aristokratie“ nannte, „die sich auf Wohlstand und Herkunft gründet“.

Man muss sich also fragen, was sie von Barbara Pierce Bush halten würden, der 90 Jahre alten, weißhaarigen, scharfzüngigen und blaublütigen Matriarchin der Bush-Familie, die in der noblen Rye City im...

Jeb Bush, un candidat à la présidence américaine sous le fardeau de sa dynastie

WASHINGTON – Les pères fondateurs de l’Amérique haïssaient ce que Thomas Jefferson appelait "une aristocratie artificielle fondée sur la richesse et la naissance". On peut donc se demander ce qu’ils penseraient de Barbara Pierce Bush, la matriarche nonagénaire de sang bleu, à la crinière blanche et à la langue de...

Planet Politics: The Bushes Are Back

WASHINGTON -- America’s founders hated what Thomas Jefferson called “an artificial aristocracy founded on wealth and birth.”

So you have to wonder what they would think of Barbara Pierce Bush, the 90-year-old, snowy-haired, tart-tongued, blue-blooded matriarch of the Bush family dynasty, who grew up in the wealthy New York suburb...

Bush III, ma chiamatelo solo Jeb. Bonus e malus di un cognome ingombrante

WASHINGTON - I padri fondatori americani detestavano quella che Thomas Jefferson aveva definito una “aristocrazia artificiale basata sul ceto e sul censo”.

Allora viene spontaneo chiedersi che cos’avrebbero potuto pensare di Barbara Pierce Bush, la canuta novantenne dalla lingua tagliente e dal sangue blu che è anche la matriarca della...

Certes, la capitale américaine n'est ni Madrid ni Rome, et encore moins Athènes. Les gens ne descendent pas dans la rue, le gouvernement n'est pas sur le point de s'effondrer et les États-Unis ne sont pas au bord de la faillite.

Anti-Globalism Has Its Day In DC

WASHINGTON -- The American capital isn't Madrid or Rome, let alone Athens. No people are massing in the streets, governments aren't collapsing and no one is threatening national bankruptcy.

Still, in its own way, the American political system on Friday dared (in at least one legislative vote) to question the...
