United States – November Presidential: The Spectrum of the 1876′ Stalemate
We hear a lot about 1876 these days in the United States. The reason is this: the 1876 presidential election resulted, not in a draw between the two candidates but in the equivalent of a stalemate in chess: a block forcing the game to be canceled… which is not – you will agree – an option in a presidential election, therefore, the outgoing president, General Grant, considered handing over power to the military. We narrowly escaped through bargaining between the two candidates.
This time, however, one of the candidates is not willing to bargain. … Read the rest
Has Trump betrayed the values of the Republican Party or revealed its true nature?
If you follow a little bit what I say here, you will know that I believe that there are several tendencies within the Republican Party in the United States and that Trump represents only one of them.
I had the opportunity to mention the existence of a center-right tendency represented during his lifetime by John McCain (died In August 2018), recalling that a close associate of the late senator from Arizona was behind the release to the press of the Steele report. The most serious accusation of the report, is that Trump is the victim of blackmail … Read the rest

Trends-Tendances – The danger zone, August 27 2020
If someone had solemnly said to me at some point in my life: “in ten years time we will look back and realize that humanity is at a turning point at this very moment, and that its survival depends on the great decisions that must be taken now in a hurry”, I would have asked my interlocutor a question in return, I would have said to him: “Why this moment rather than any other: the human race has gone through many trials”.

United States – Why Joe Biden’s choice of Kamala Harris as Vice President is a “good” thing… – August 12, 2020
If I were a citizen of the United States and I had the opportunity to vote in a municipal or state election, I would certainly find a better candidate than Joe Biden or Kamala Harris on the ballot.
So why say that Biden’s choice of Harris as Vice President is a “good” thing?
