Russia Effectively Undermining Washington’s Hegemonic Agenda

It was just a matter of time. Pure evil only goes unchallenged for so long. Putin’s intervention in Syria represents a major geopolitical shift – a brilliant move, again showing he’s a master chess player, taking the initiative in confronting the scourge of terrorism, what America supports and fosters as part of its dirty game. Maybe Iraq and Central Asia efforts will follow Syria. Putin is now the preeminent ...Read full article...

Putin is in “substantial danger of assassination”

The last time a visible man decided to stand up to the globalist establishment he was murdered in cold blood and in the light of day. That man was John F. Kennedy. Before he died, he warned the world about the existence and spread of an unholy alliance between the political and corporate elites, who up until today, continue to work together to achieve what JFK foresaw as a ...Read full article...

Obama Could Stop Israeli State Terror with One Phone Call He Won’t Make

Washington supports ongoing Israeli violence against defenseless Palestinians. It wouldn’t be happening otherwise. One phone call from Obama to Netanyahu demanding an immediate halt to Israeli lawlessness, making it clear Washington won’t tolerate it, would change everything now ongoing. It continues because of full US support and encouragement. Don’t let duplicitous comments from John Kerry’s State Department spokesman, Admiral John Kirby, fool you – claiming Kerry “remain(s) deeply concerned ...Read full article...

Brazilian Political Elite postpones start of Impeachment against Rousseff

In Brazil, unlawful maneuvers by the Rousseff administration are ‘forgiven’ because they were committed in a different administration. On Tuesday, the country woke up expecting some outcome, for better or worse, on the future of President Dilma Rousseff: the leader of the Chamber of Deputies, Eduardo Cunha, had to accept or reject the opening of impeachment proceedings for alleged irregularities in government accounts in 2014. But the plot has ...Read full article...

Impeachment knocks on Dilma Rousseff’s door

Brazilian legislators decide Dilma Rousseff’s political future. The signs of corruption in the Rousseff administration are undeniable. Federal police and national prosecutors have found enough proof to open investigations against corporate leaders, politicians, congressmen and even the former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. So, why not a full investigation on Dilma Rousseff’s actions regarding her administration’s accounting practices? Brazil has, for the moment, more questions than answers, but ...Read full article...

The Impulsiveness of U.S. Power

Washington’s impulsive use of power is a danger to America and to the world. Arrogant Washington politicians and crazed neoconservatives are screaming that the US must shoot down Russian aircraft that are operating against the US-supplied forces that have brought death and destruction to Syria, unleashing millions of refugees on Europe, in Washington’s effort to overthrow the Syrian government. Even my former CSIS colleague, Zbigniew Brzezinski, normally a sensible ...Read full article...

Lunatics in Washington Want Direct Confrontation with Russia

Russia’s sovereign independence sticks in Washington’s craw, longterm US policy determined to replace it with governance it controls – even at the risk of WW III. Putin’s most responsible policies are bashed, notably his forthright efforts to end conflicts in Ukraine and Syria diplomatically – now his real war on terrorism, polar opposite Washington’s phony one, a pretext for ravaging one country after another. Irresponsible propaganda war against him ...Read full article...

Trump: “Mentally ill people” not Guns “responsible for Mass Shootings”

In one of his latest television interviews, Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, said gun violence is due to mentally ill people getting guns. Trump rejected the notion that more firearms is the problem and insisted that places with the most stringent gun laws are the most violent. Trump advocated for more help for mentally ill people as supposed to more gun laws, which he said, are ineffective in preventing mass ...Read full article...

Polar Opposites: US vs Russia in Syria

Washington wants regime change, replacing Bashar al-Assad with a US selected puppet. Its strategy features naked aggression, transforming a peaceful nation threatening no one into an endless cauldron of violence, chaos and instability, causing enormous harm to millions of Syrians. Words can’t explain their suffering. US imperial policy bears full responsibility, complicit with Israel, wanting a regional rival removed, more Syrian territory stolen, both nations pursuing their Greater Middle ...Read full article...

Putin to America: “Stop Acting out of Imperialistic Ambitions”

“Rise above the endless desire to dominate the world,” said Putin in a press conference. There are many differences between the way politics is done in America and in Russia  There are countless differences between the current U.S. president and Vladimir Putin. Among all those differences there is one evident feature that Putin has that Obama does not: Putin speaks clearly and straightforwardly. Putin is also a very smart ...Read full article...

Obama Deifies American Hegemony

Obama justifies Washington’s violence as ‘liberation from dictators’. Today is the 70th anniversary of the UN. It is not clear how much good the UN has done. Some UN Blue Helmet peacekeeping operations had limited success. But mainly Washington has used the UN for war, such as the Korean War and Washington’s Cold War against the Soviet Union. In our time Washington had UN tanks sent in against Bosnian ...Read full article...

Catalonia to vote in fierce independence row with Spain

AFP – A bitter standoff dragging in everyone from politicians to footballers hits a climax Sunday when nationalists in Catalonia hope voters will back them to strike out for independence from Spain. Insults and threats have been flying between Barcelona and Madrid this week ahead of the regional election that Catalan nationalists have framed as a vote on whether to break away and create a new state in Europe. ...Read full article...

Russia’s False Hopes

Russia so desperately desires to be part of the disreputable and collapsing West that Russia is losing its grip on reality. Despite hard lesson piled upon hard lesson, Russia cannot give up its hope of being acceptable to the West. The only way Russia can be acceptable to the West is to accept vassal status. Russia miscalculated that diplomacy could solve the crisis that Washington created in Ukraine and ...Read full article...
