  • Diviser l’Amérique est exactement ce que souhaite faire Donald Trump

    Il est convaincu que c’est ce qui le sauvera - et c’est pourquoi il s’est montré aussi offensif sur Charlottesville.

  • Donald Trump ou la nouvelle ère des Titans

    Il ne s’agit pas d’un jeu vidéo mais de l’Amérique de la période qui vient, et nous en avons eu un aperçu troublant cette semaine.

  • Greece Is Just The Beginning Of The Great Austerity Backlash

    The global politics of austerity seeped into the press room of the White House on Monday, the day after the Greeks voted overwhelmingly to reject a harsh bailout deal with Europe. Reporters pressed Josh Earnest, President Barack Obama’s spokesman, for details of what his boss thought of the vote and of the bailout deal, and whether he agreed with 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders that the latter was outrageous. Earnest answered with streams of polite words that added up to ... nothing.

  • L'accord sur le nucléaire en Iran et son impact sur l'héritage de Barack Obama en politique étrangère

    WASHINGTON – Les cheveux aujourd’hui presque complètement gris, le ton sombre mais néanmoins chargé d’un espoir sincère, le président Barack Obama a pris la parole dans le Rose Garden de la Maison Blanche jeudi 2 avril pour défendre l’axe central de son second mandat, sa vision sur la manière de gérer les relations avec les États dangereux et son propre rôle dans l’Histoire.

  • Hoard Your Toilet Paper -- The Left Is Coming!

    Greece gave us democracy and theater, and now is giving us a gripping new synthesis of the two: the dramatic, hysterical alarms of supporters of austerity. Facing slow growth and crushing debt, “Austerian” leaders in democracies such as Greece, Spain, France, the U.K., (and, until not long ago, Japan) clamped down on social welfare spending and eased regulation of business. On Sunday, Greece chose as its new prime minister a 40-year-old leftist, Alexis Tsipras, who vows to renegotiate $272 billion in foreign loans while amping up government wages and spending.

  • Républicains américains : dix choses à savoir s'ils remportent le Sénat

    Les Américains pourraient installer une majorité républicaine au Congrès des Etats-Unis ce mardi lors des élections de mi-mandat. Ces élections générales renouvelleront les 435 sièges de la Chambre des représentants, 36 des 100 sièges du Sénat, 36 des 50 gouverneurs d'Etats, et une partie des élus locaux.

  • China's Love-Hate Relationship With America

    The newest and most compelling one is their intensifying love-hate view of America.   This isn’t just a sociological curiosity. Officials refer vaguely but ominously to unseen “parties and forces” that work in Vietnam these days.   Neither do they like the president’s show of support for the Philippines, which has long-running territorial disputes with China over the sea between them.   Now comes the unexpected U.S. indictment of five Chinese army members on industrial espionage charges.

  • Sir Nigel Sheinwald, UK Ambassador to US, On The 'Extraordinarily Effective Alliance'

    Fourth of July dawned grey and muggy in the American capital. Like everything else in Washington, the British Embassy was closed. The embassy contains more than a few sacred World War Two relics of the "Special Relationship" between the UK and the US, among them a bust of Winston Churchill that George W. Bush borrowed for the Oval Office, but on the American holiday, Sir Nigel was instead focused on a different Special Relationship: that of Will and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
