If This Is Freedom and Democracy, What Is Tyranny?

“Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is the numbers of people all over the world who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience… Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world, in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war and cruelty. Our problem is that ...Read full article...

Why is Nationalism gaining strength in Europe?

The growing social unrest that exists in the European Union (EU) is fueling the rise of the right. The Freedom Party (FPÖ) was about to win the Austrian presidency in 2016, the Party for Freedom (PVV) became the second political force in Holland in March and the National Front’s Marine Le Pen could be the most voted candidate in the first round of the French presidential elections on April ...Read full article...

Trump Has Surrendered. Will Putin Be The Next To Surrender?

Update: Washington has reopened the conflict with a Tomahawk missile attack on Syrian Air Force Bases. The Russian/Syrian air defense systems did not prevent the attack. The Washington Establishment has reasserted control. First Flynn and now Bannon. All that are left in the Trump administration are the Zionists and the crazed generals who want war with Russia, China, Iran, Syria, and North Korea. There is no one in the ...Read full article...

The White House converts to Democracy?

A considerable step has just been taken by the Trump administration – his principal diplomats have announced that they recognise the right of the Syrian people to democracy. They admit that as a nation, the Syrian people made the sovereign choice of Bashar al-Assad as their President. That is the end of all the rhetoric about forced « democratisation » which accompanied the military adventures of the previous administrations. ...Read full article...

The Real Russiagate: Obama’s Stasi State

Mike Whitney has written an excellent expose of the “Russiagate” cover story for Obama’s political use of national security to help his party oppose Republicans. Covert surveillance of politicians on Obama’s Nixon-like “Enemies List” has been going on for many years, but is only now being unmasked as a result of the failure of Obama’s cover story–“We weren’t spying on political opponents; only on Russians to protect America.” The ...Read full article...

Trump Ends Obama’s ‘Environmental Policy’

• The former president sought to limit the amount of carbon emissions in the name of saving the world from catastrophic climate change. • Obama warned that he would end coal production with the stroke of his pen. Climate is not changing, it is being changed to accommodate the decarbonisation policy that intends to drastically reduce industrial production and cause greater unemployment all around the world and to prevent developing nations from being ...Read full article...

What would happen if Washington gave up on the jihad?

President Trump’s desire to fight Daesh and to put an end to international terrorism is going to be extremely difficult to implement. Indeed, it will cause damage to the states who organised it, and implies a reorientation of international politics. The new President of the United States does not seem ready to give his troops the order to attack until he has found and sealed new alliances. The opposition ...Read full article...

Washington’s Benevolent Mask Is Disintegrating

The few weeks of Trump’s presidency suffice to make clear that there will be no change this time either. Normal relations with Russia are on the back burner, if not off the stove. The material needs of the military/security complex for an enemy in order to justify its budget and police state powers, and the ideological needs of the neoconservatives for US world hegemony, are deemed to be more ...Read full article...

AG Jeff Sessions on the Carpet Over Nothing

It’s hard feeling sympathy for Jeff Sessions, a man with a history of racist opposition to equal rights and protections under the law for all Americans. Still, vilifying him for conversations he apparently had with Russia’s ambassador to America, Sergey Kislyak, during the presidential campaign when he was a US senator is way over-the-top and unjustified. He shouldn’t have been asked about it during confirmation hearings or other times. ...Read full article...

The Resurrection of Armageddon

“The U.S. intelligence community’s extraordinary campaign of leaks claiming improper ties between President Trump’s team and Russia seeks to ensure a lucrative New Cold War by blocking detente.” — Gareth Porter It only required 24 days for the Deep State to castrate President Donald Trump and terminate the promise that the high tensions with Russia created during the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes would be terminated by ...Read full article...

President Trump Walks the Walk on Illegal Immigration

No DACA recipients or people who have violated immigration laws will be deported as long as they have a clean record and are earning a living based on legal activities. WASHINGTON, D.C. – With 10,000 to 15,000 new border agents and a stop to the infamous catch and release policy, the US President has effectively begun to hunt down criminal illegal aliens. Donald Trump has opened the door to massive ...Read full article...

Deep State Power vs Trump

America’s deep state is divided on Trump. He couldn’t have been elected without enough support. Post-inauguration, things changed. The balance of power shifted against him, leaving him vulnerable, already weakened this early in his tenure, unprecedented for a US president. His record so far in office is another matter, though too soon to judge him definitively. Still, disturbing signs aren’t encouraging. More on this below. Jack Kennedy transformed himself ...Read full article...

The Trump Presidency: RIP

Has Donald Trump overestimated his presidential power? The answer is yes. Is Steve Bannon, Trump’s main advisor, politically inexperienced? The answer is yes. We can conclude from the answers to these two questions that Trump is in over his head and will pay a big price. How large will the price be? The New York Times reports that US “intelligence agencies…sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding ...Read full article...

Donald Trump: Business against War

Seeking to overthrow the Power that preceded him, which is still trying hang on despite him, President Trump cannot compose his administration by relying on the political class or on senior civil servants. He has therefore solicited new collaborators, entrepreneurs like himself, despite the risk that this confusion of rôle categories may entail. According to the Puritan ideology, which has been in fashion since the dissolution of the Soviet ...Read full article...

Who is Using the Press and the Judicial System Against Trump & Fillon?

How not to be struck by the resemblance between the campaigns aimed at shooting down Donald Trump and François Fillon? How can we fail to observe that these two men, with their very different personalities and ideologies, threaten the same interests? At the same time, very large press campaigns are developing in the Western world against both US President Donald Trump and, to a lesser extent, against French presidential ...Read full article...
