Corporation Trump desperately tries to salvage bad press. But a hedge fund executive as communications director??? Plutocrats are distancing phenomena from the average American, and have rigid values of self-interest upon self-interest. Once Scrooge ‘found the light’ he became a superb communications specialist. Trump and his cronies should take heed.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer abruptly resigned Friday morning after President Donald Trump named former New York hedge fund executive Anthony Scaramucci as his communications director. Spicer, who had stepped back from most day-to-day press briefings in expectation of taking on a larger role in overseeing the communications shop, viewed his role diminished by…

When will the Trump Administration wake up and assess the damage the President has caused? Regrettably, Ethics Directors have no legislative power over abusers of the law and social norms. They are advice-givers only, and their effectiveness can only be measured by the opinions they can sway in high places. Shaub has decided he will be much more effective from the ‘outside’. More power to him.

Walter Shaub, director of the US Office of Government Ethics, who has pushed the Trump administration for months to comply with historical norms for a president and his cabinet, seems to finally have had enough. The career civil servant, who worked in the office under three presidential administrations, resigned unexpectedly today (July 6), six months…

An obvious credibility gap.

The Germans did what they could. Starting well before Inauguration Day, they tried to get on friendly terms with President Donald Trump, at least friendly enough not to squander a bond that took more than half a century for their nations to build. The effort was commendable, in part because of the patience it required…

Never pass up a boot (car trunk) sale, for unpredictable sources of great fortune.

It was truly a diamond in the rough. Some 30 years ago, a woman in west London uncovered a giant ring at a “car-boot sale” that piqued her fancy. Thinking it was costume jewelry, she picked up the sparkler for ten pounds. Now, that same gem is being auctioned off by Sotheby’s London in July…
