Iran-Nuclear-Deal“Iran is not going to sell out Russia. It’s not going to knife a friend in the back. That’s just not going to happen…. There’s a new world emerging and Iran is going to be part of it.” — Mike Whitney 

This is an excellent article that explains clearly why the US cut a deal with Iran over the nuclear issue : to punish and bring Russia to its knees. According to Mike Whitney, this is “just not going to happen.” (LD) Read More

A recent article by Masha Gessen for theNew York Times has revived the story of Putin having been hand-picked for the Russian Presidency by the former oligarch Boris Berezovsky.

In this article Gessen quotes Berezovsky telling her in 2008 that he proposed to Putin a fake two-party system to control Russia (see also Boris Berezovsky’s Evil Plan to Mimic the U.S. Political SystemRussia Insider, 12th June 2015). Read More

Ukraine’s Tragicomedy — Made in the USA

Remember that “imminent” Russian invasion of Ukraine that was supposed to take place over a year ago? Well, it’s still “imminent”!

President Poroshenko has just announced that the Russians are about to undertake a “full-scale” invasion of his country and that therefore the military budget must be increased, while “traitors” who refuse to be drafted – and who persist in criticizing his government – must be dealt with harshly.

VICTORIA NULAND
The Jewess who is in charge of American foreign policy

“So a woman walks into a room…” —  That’s how quite a few jokes usually start. In our case, self-appointed Queen of Nulandistan Victoria “F**k the EU” walks into a room in Moscow to talk to Russian deputy foreign ministers Sergei Ryabkov and Grigory Karasin. Read More

Who pulls the strings of Femen and Pussy Riot?

. . . by Francis Carr Begbie

Christmas is a wonderful time at the Paris city centre church of La Madeleine. The magnificent vaulted ceilings echo to the sounds of baroque organ music and the choir rehearsing for the famous Christmas Eve concerts.  But mainly it is a haven where generations of devout Catholics sit, pray and re-charge their spiritual batteries.

Then on December 20, 2013, it became the scene of an obscenity. A young woman, naked to the waist apart from a blue veil, marched to the altar and proceeded to enact an “abortion” using a calf’s liver as a foetus. Then while screaming pro-abortion slogans she proceeded to urinate on the altar.  After striking defiant poses for photographers she walked calmly back out.

Helterskelter to World War Three

This fact-filled article (source) is well worth studying carefully  because it gives us an overall perspective of the criminality of the American government as it plunges the world ever closer to WWIII.

Ron-Paul-Interventionism-Kills

This week I was invited to address an important conference of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. Scholars from Russia and from around the world, Russian government officials, and the Russian people seek an answer as to why Washington destroyed during the past year the friendly relations between America and Russia that President Reagan and President Gorbachev succeeded in establishing.

Paul Craig Roberts – The World Is Now On The Cusp Of Total War

As the world grows increasingly concerned about the fighting in Ukraine, especially in the aftermath of a large bomb being detonated last night, former US Treasury official Dr. Paul Craig Roberts warned that the world is now on the cusp of total war.

KWN-Roberts-X-292015At this time we do not know the outcome of the meeting in Moscow between Merkel, Hollande, and Putin.

The meeting with Putin was initiated by Merkel and Hollande, because they are disturbed by the aggressive position that Washington has taken toward Russia and are fearful that Washington is pushing Europe into a conflict that Europe does not want. Read More

Anti-Putin Propaganda is not working

THE NEW HITLER?
THE NEW HITLER?

Anyone who follows the news regularly, knows that the media has done everything in its power to smear Vladimir Putin and to demonize him as a tyrant and a thug. Fortunately, most people aren’t buying it.

Yes, I’ve seen the polls that say that Putin and Russia are viewed “less favorably” than they were prior to the crisis in Ukraine. In fact, here’s a clip from a recent PEW survey which seems to prove that I’m wrong:

“Across the 44 countries surveyed, a median percentage of 43% have unfavorable opinions of Russia, compared with 34% who are positive. Negative ratings of Russia have increased significantly since 2013 in 20 of the 36 countries surveyed…” Read More

Russia Rising

Russia is on the way up, America on the way down. Will Washington start a major new war in a desperate attempt to reverse its decline and deal a death blow to its increasingly confident competitor?

An edited abridgment of Dmitri Orlov’s How to Start a War and Lose An Empirepresented with pictures, captions and comments by Lasha Darkmoon

A year and a half I wrote an essay on how the US chooses to view Russia, titled The Image of the Enemy. I was living in Russia at the time, and, after observing the American anti-Russian rhetoric and the Russian reaction to it, I made some observations that seemed important at the time. It turns out that I managed to spot an important trend, but given the quick pace of developments since then, these observations are now woefully out of date, and so here is an update.

Will Russia and China Hold Their Fire Until War Is the Only Alternative?

By Paul Craig Roberts

screen-shot-2014-01-16-at-8-27-28-amObama’s September 24 speech at the UN is the most absurd thing I have heard in my entire life. It is absolutely amazing that the president of the United States would stand before the entire world and tell what everyone knows are blatant lies while simultaneously demonstrating Washington’s double standards and belief that Washington alone, because the US is exceptional and indispensable, has the right to violate all law.

It is even more amazing that every person present did not get up and walk out of the assembly.

The diplomats of the world actually sat there and listened to blatant lies from the world’s worst terrorist. They even clapped their approval. Read More

NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT
No one provokes me with impunity

Shortly after Vladimir Putin was elected president of Russia in 2000, the murdered family of Tzar Nicholas was beatified. Until quite recently, the centers of Jewish power had hoped to preserve some idealized memories of the murderous Soviet system in the minds of the Russians, but it turned out to be a vain hope.

Because Bolshevism was formulated and executed by Jews, their power centers had retained fond hopes of being able some day to reconnect and reinstall some sort of Jewish lobby leverage in the Kremlin. These fond hopes were dashed by Vladimir Putin. Read More
