Insanity Grips The Western World

Just as the Nazis proclaimed “Deutschland uber alles,” neoconservatives proclaim “America uber alles.” In September 2013 President Obama actually stood before the United Nations and declared, “I believe America is exceptional.” Germany’s political leaders and those in Great Britain, France, and throughout Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan also believe that America ...Read full article...

Obama Betrays Iran on Nuclear Deal

One thing for sure can be said about Obama. He’s consistent. He says one thing. He does another – virtually always. He predictably betrays the public trust with disturbing regularity.

Czech Republic Is Not An American Protectorate

In addition to this ignobility, European governments are also vassals to the EU, so on the sovereignty front European countries are twice damned. They ...Read full article...

Netanyahu’s Congressional Rant

He did more to damage relations with America than any previous Israeli leader. He last addressed a joint congressional session on May 24, 2011.

Kiev Regime continues to Violate Minsk Agreement

Negotiating with US-controlled fascist thugs assures promises made will be broken. Throughout months of conflict, Kiev broke virtually every one made. Things ahead don’t look promising.

On February 28, Donetsk forces completed their pullback from all front line positions. Doing so involved withdrawing 21 artillery groups. ...Read full article...

The same way Washington turns one country after another into dystopian wastelands – ravaging, destroying, and strip-mining them of everything of worth. Times editors mocked clear evidence of US culpability together with fascist Venezuelan elements. They ridiculed Maduro.
