Geopolitics, Power and Political Economy

Monday Cartoon Blogging – June 10, 2019

We’re back from the beach to review the week that was! Trump toured Buckingham Palace. The world observed the 75th anniversary of D-day, and the 30th anniversary of China’s Tiananmen Square. Some are saying that the vicious attack by security forces on protesters in Sudan is Africa’s first Tiananmen Square-type event. At home, Joe Biden renounced the Hyde Amendment that barred public financing for abortions, a position he held for nearly 40 years. Republicans pounced, framing Biden’s change in position as a gaffe. You might say he was for it before he was against it. On to cartoons.

Biden has another bi-partisan moment with GOP:


Trumpy oh Trumpy, where have you been? I’ve been to London to visit the Queen:

What D-Day shows us about today:

Mueller’s subliminal messages:

GOP ponders raising voting age:

Trump has genuine concerns about voting:

    I personally don’t feel any hope. In my town, I used to attend town meeting also meetings of the Republican club. But town meeting have devolved into shouting matches (our mayor is a true thug) but their is no local newspaper. We had a Daily Record but that is just a shell with one reporter for the entire county. And county wide, the news coverage is the same – none at all.

    Nationally, my vote if meaningless, even if I still vote anyway.

    @Terry: it’s difficult to want to keep fighting, when so many people (voters) seem just fine with the current dickitude and cruelty. It’s tough when one party has an iron-clad grip on your town. Our town was like that, we had a corrupt, basically do-nothing mayor and town council for 5 straight terms. That changed in 2016. And when the new guy (other party)turned out to be about as bad as the prior mayor, we voted in yet another one (mayors here have two-year terms). Now the new one is up for reelection in November. He, at least, has listened to both sides in town, and we’ve finally made some progress after 12 years of stagnation.

    I guess the point is we can’t stop trying, even when it seems pointless. Saw a bumper sticker on the Garden State Pkwy in NJ yesterday that said: “If you don’t try to change things, change won’t happen.”

    Voter turnout is everything in a divided country.
