Trump Chooses Hawkish National Security Advisor

On Monday, Trump named hawkish Army Lt. General HR McMaster to replace Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor (NSA). Political pressure lead to his unfortunate sacking for harmlessly discussing sanctions with Russia’s US ambassador. Twice passed over for brigadier general, McMaster earned two more stars in less than six years after getting his first one, a remarkable advancement – given to warriors, not peace advocates. As a lieutenant general, ...Read full article...

The Hijacking of the Munich Security Conference

History teaches us this – every time a System collapses, its leaders do not realise the truth until they are swept away by the storm. So the political representatives of the European Union, meeting just like every year in Munich for their Security Conference, were shocked to hear Sergey Lavrov speak of a post-Western world order. And yet the world is slipping away from under their feet – the Arab ...Read full article...

Evidence that Population Control was Centrally Coordinated in the Eastern Bloc

The total fertility rate graphs of former Eastern Bloc nations reveal that the population control program was centrally coordinated and that all communist countries followed the lead of the Soviet Union, or more precisely of the Politburo. Most communist countries began undermining fertility around 1950 and pursued an aggressive population control program until 1967 when Russia reached replacement level fertility. The program was then placed on hold and fertility remained at the level reached by every country, thus relatively flat ...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...

This is What is Really Behind the European Refugee Policy

No one who has even the slightest clue about what is like to be a refugee would ever oppose helping those fleeing war, famine or disease or any other threat to their lives. Ideally, the world would be better without wars, famine and disease, but this ideal is very far from becoming true due to the geopolitical agendas being pursued by multinational corporations and the governments they control. The ...Read full article...

Coup Underway to Weaken or Oust Trump

What’s ongoing against him is what fantasy democracy looks like in America – the way banana republics and other despotic regimes work. It’s a deplorable state of affairs. Ordinary people have no say. Deep state power brokers run things. The president, key members of Congress, the judiciary and bureaucracy serve them. Challenging the system practically assures being targeted by long knives. Was Trump’s presidency over before it began? Throughout ...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...

Trump: Los Negocios contra la Guerra

Tratando de echar por tierra el poder que le precedió y que se aferra al control en contra suya, el presidente Donald Trump no puede conformar su administración apoyándose en la clase política ni en altos funcionarios. Por eso está recurriendo a nuevas personalidades, a empresarios como él, a pesar de los riesgos que eso implica. Según la ideología puritana en boga desde la disolución de la Unión Soviética, es un crimen mezclar la política de un Estado con los negocios ...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...

Human Rights Watch Fake News on Syria

George Soros generously funds numerous organizations for personal gain – Amnesty International (AI) and Human Rights Watch (HRW) among them. In 2010, he announced a $100 million grant to HRW from his Open Society Foundation – on the phony pretext of protecting and promoting human rights worldwide. He challenged HRW to raise a comparable amount from other private donors. On February 7, AI published a report on mass exterminations ...Read full article...

Western Interests Aim To Flummox Russia

An article by Robert Berke in oilprice.com, which describes itself as “The No. 1 Source for Oil & Energy News,” illustrates how interest groups control outcomes by how they shape policy choices. Berke’s article reveals how the US intends to maintain and extend its hegemony by breaking up the alliance between Russia, Iran, and China, and by oil privatizations that result in countries losing control over their sovereignty to ...Read full article...

The Globalization of Environmental Degradation

Figuratively speaking, a ginormous asteroid is hurtling to a cataclysmic rendezvous with earth, but we are not supposed to notice. The asteroid is the rising threat from environmental degradation. Evidence is accumulating that environmental degradation is becoming global. We can either act responsibly by accepting the challenge or take refuge in denial and risk the consequences. There is nothing new about climate change. It has been ongoing for as ...Read full article...

3 Ways Americans Are Being Deliberately Divided

Let’s talk about the blatant efforts to cause an irreparable rift between the people of our country. I often compare current events to parenting, and this week is no different. Everything purported to be news is just more bickering. It’s like when your kids are behaving like brats, and no matter what one kid does, the other kid jumps on it and blows it completely out of proportion like it’s ...Read full article...

U.S. Veterans Again Stand For Standing Rock

Last November, over 1,000 US veterans supported Standing Rock Sioux tribe members, putting their bodies on the line as human shields. They came to back their resistance against completion of the environmentally destructive Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), endangering sacred ancestral land, water and wildlife habitat. Native American Samoan Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D. Hawaii) was there. In September, she and 18 other House Democrats addressed Obama in a joint statement, ...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...
