Thursday, January 19, 2017 Remember Don Siegelman
More than 100 Democratic and Republican former attorneys general and officials condemned the prosecution of Siegelman as politically-inspired prosecutorial misconduct. Yet Obama did nothing. By doing nothing for Siegelman, Obama demonstrated to every Democrat that they were on their own if they won elections in Republican political strongholds.
Wednesday, January 18, 2017 Trump vs. the CIA
The CIA serves no American purpose, only the private purposes of the ruling elites, who are the real deplorables who have used corrupt Western governments to solidify all income and wealth in a few greedy hands.
Monday, January 16, 2017 Can Trump Take Back The Presidency From The CIA?
If Trump intends to survive, he must break the CIA into a thousand pieces as President John F. Kennedy intended before the CIA assassinated him. Trump must arrest for treason the neoconservatives and put them on trial. Trump must curtail NSA's spying, which is in complete violation of the US Constitution, on all communications of all Americans.
Sunday, January 15, 2017 Europe's Courageous Journalism Voice Has Passed Away
Due to the arrogance that resides in Washington, the would-be overlords of the world are not aware that Russia and China are not Iraq and Libya. If the idiots that rule in Washington bring us into war with these powers, the United States will disappear from history along with the rest of the world.
Saturday, January 14, 2017 The Establishment Is Trying To Steal The Presidency From Trump
The US ruling establishment is causing hope to fade and suspicion to rise in the Russian government, thus raising barriers within Russia herself to Trump's policy of better relations. Nothing speaks more clearly of the unbridled evil of the US Establishment than its willingness to risk conflict with Russia for the sake of its hold on power and profit.
Saturday, January 14, 2017 Is Trump Already Finished?
It looks like the Trump Presidency is already defeated by his own appointees independently of the ridiculous and completely unbelievable propaganda put out by the CIA and broadcast by the presstitute media in the US, UK, and Europe. The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and BBC have lowered themselves below the National Enquirer.
Friday, January 13, 2017 Ten Aircraft Carriers Aligned in a Row
I have been told by former(?) intelligence officers, the aircraft carriers are in dock so that their copper wiring can be replaced by fiber optics. Apparently, the Russians have the capability to shut down the operating systems of our ships and aircraft that are copper wired.
Thursday, January 12, 2017 Review of The CIA As Organized Crime by Douglas Valentine
The strength of this book is that it gives us the goods on the Phoenix program used in Vietnam for assassination and murder and explains its use in Afghanistan and how it has been established in the US under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security.
Wednesday, January 11, 2017 Obama The War Criminal Butcherer of Women and Children
What does the administration have to show for eight years of illegal military interventions in seven countries, none of which comprised a danger to the US and against none of which the US has declared war? Terrorism was created by US invasions, no wars have been won, and the Middle East has been consumed in chaos and destruction.
Tuesday, January 10, 2017 Don't Count On Trump Being Inaugurated
The latest "explosive" fake news is that "multiple US officials with direct knowledge" told CNN that they have "classified documents" that Russia has compromising documents on Trump that would allow them to blackmail the US President. The dossier claims that in Russian hands are videos of "wild sex parties" staged by Trump on his numerous trips to Moscow.
Monday, January 9, 2017 Obama Regime Moves To Federalize Elections
this last minute act of Obama is based on nothing but the false allegations of Russian interference. Despite the total absence of any evidence, the Obama regime continues to insist that the election was tainted by Russian interference, and the presstitutes repeat the lie as if it is true.
Saturday, January 7, 2017 A Case Study in the Creation of False News
The CIA's message to Trump is clear: Get in line with our agenda, or we are going to mess you over. It is clear that the CIA is warring against Trump. But the CIA's media assets have turned the facts on their head and are blaming Trump for having a negative view of the CIA.
Friday, January 6, 2017 Murdering the Innocent in Order to Support the Lie
If Americans do not wake up to the orchesrations to which they are subjected, they will forfeit their freedom. And they will not be able to prevent Earth's destruction in thermo-nuclear war. If Americans cannot take back their country from self-serving oligarchs, Americans are doomed.
Thursday, January 5, 2017 The Coup Against Truth
These lies are validated by endless media repetitions throughout the Western world and are viewed by Russia as indications that Western populations are being prepared for a military attack on Russia. Putin has warned publicly on many occasions that the Western propaganda is dangerously destabilizing. Yet, as he also notes, no one hears his warnings.
Tuesday, January 3, 2017 Can Trump Fix The Economy In 2017?
The offshoring of jobs benefits only a small number of shareholders and executives. Former prosperous manufacturing states are in long term depression. Median real family incomes have fallen. Real estate values in abandoned manufacturing areas have fallen. The tax base has eroded. State and local government pension systems cannot meet their obligations. The social safety net is unraveling.
Friday, December 30, 2016 What Is The Obama Regime Up To?
As expected, Putin's response to the latest provocation is low key as the "sanctions" appear to be meaningless on the surface. However, in the event that something dangerous is below the surface, the Russian government might want to consider putting its military forces on alert.
Wednesday, December 28, 2016 What is Henry Kissinger Up To?
Although Trump has been elected president, the neoconservatives remain dominant in US foreign policy, and their commitment to the hegemony of the US as the uni-power remains as strong as ever. The neoconservative ideology has been institutionalized in parts of the CIA, State Department and Pentagon.
Thursday, December 22, 2016 The Greatest Christmas Gift For All
As we enter into 2017, Western civilization, the product of thousands of years of striving, hangs in the balance. Degeneracy is everywhere before our eyes. As the West sinks into tyranny, will Western peoples defend their liberty and their souls, or will they sink into the tyranny, which again has raised its ugly and all devouring head?
Tuesday, December 20, 2016 As the Coup Against Trump Fails, the Threat Against His Life Rises
The military/security complex has been entrenched since NATO's formation on April 4, 1949, a provocation that preceded by six years the formation of the Warsaw Pact on May 14, 1955. Any president willing to confront this entrenched deep state superpower deserves the support of all of us.
Monday, December 19, 2016 Will Trump Lower the Cost of Speaking the Truth?
Of all the things that are endangered in America today, truth is the most endangered. Without truth we cannot save civil liberty, democracy, wildlife, the environment, the working class, health care and old age security, or the planet from nuclear war and environmental destruction.
Sunday, December 18, 2016 The Striking Audacity of the Coup-in-Process
Even if Trump survives the CIA's challenge to his election, his cabinet appointees will have to survive confirmation fights and, if they do, ongoing challenges to their efforts to change policies that favor oligarchs enriched by war to policies that favor oligarchs enriched by peace.
Sunday, December 18, 2016 Only a Counter-Coup Can Save American Democracy
CIA director John Brennan's audacity suggests that he expects the coup to succeed. Otherwise, he is dead meat along with Bezos, The Washington Post and the rest of the presstitute media. We are at the point that only a countercoup against the CIA and the Hillary forces can save American democracy.
Saturday, December 17, 2016 A CIA-led Coup Against American Democracy Is Unfolding Before Our Eyes
The only ones speaking against the coup are the voters who elected Trump -- all of whom are alleged to have been deceived by Russian fake news -- the Russian government, and the 200 websites falsely described by the Washington Post and the secret organization PropOrNot as Russian agents.
Wednesday, December 14, 2016 How Come No One Involved in the Russian Hacking Conspiracy Talked?
Are there elements within the CIA committing treason by working against president-elect Trump? Are there elements in the US Congress committing treason by trying to sway electors with fake news resting on unattributed claims that the Russians, not the American people, elected Trump? Why these claims in the absence of proof?
Sunday, December 11, 2016 Has Liberty Departed From America?
Is the CIA correct that the American people are forever brainwashed, subject only to the explanations given by their overlords? If so, all Americans are slated to be the most oppressed people in history.
Saturday, December 10, 2016 If You Are For Peace You Are A Russian Agent
If Putin and those of us on the 200 List are the ones who actually got Trump elected, shouldn't Putin or The List be Time magazine's person of the year and not Trump? After all, if Putin and I did the work, shouldn't we get the recognition? Why give the credit to the stooge we put in office? Why is Time magazine shoving those of us responsible off into the background?
Thursday, December 8, 2016 Big Money Intends To Shut Down Our Websites
Apparently, Trump wants peace with Russia but war with Iran, a contradiction as Russia will not permit the US to have war with Iran. So if Trump and his generals persist, there will be no lessening of tensions between the US and Russia, and by extension with China. If this is the outcome, Trump will blow up the planet as surely as Hillary would have done.
Wednesday, December 7, 2016 A Dismal Jobs Report
The unemployed are simply moved into the uncounted category of discouraged workers who are so discouraged about finding a job that they have ceased looking. If you are not looking for a job, you are not considered to be part of the labor force. Therefore, your unemployment is not counted.
Monday, December 5, 2016 The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs
Clearly the ruling oligarchy is concerned that the websites on the 200 List now control the explanations although not the levers of power. Nevertheless, if the pen is more powerful than the sword, power will return to the people as we continue to deliver truth to them.
Saturday, December 3, 2016 McCarthyism Is Breaking Out All Over
By publicizing the fake list of 200 "Russian agents" in the Washington Post, the presstitute newspaper has brought buckets of shame and condemnation upon its head, destroying in the process the thin shred of credibility that the Main Stream media still possessed.
Friday, December 2, 2016 Trump's Appointments -- What do they mean?
Whereas Congress is in Republican hands, Congress remains in the hands of special interests who will protect their agendas from hostile potential appointees. Therefore, although Trump does not face partisan opposition from Congress, he faces the power of special interests that fund congressional political campaigns.
Monday, November 28, 2016 Britain Down The Drain
Britain is going down the drain. But not because it is trying to rescue itself at this late date from loss of sovereignty and multicultural hell. Britain is going to hell because, judging by the closeness of the Brexit vote, almost half of the British population have been so brainwashed that they are ashamed to be British.
Monday, November 28, 2016 Dear President Putin
My criticism of Washington's policy of raising tensions between nuclear powers and support of your policy of reducing tensions is not spy cover. I really do prefer that the world not be blown up in thermo-nuclear war. This is a suspect view in the US, but I hope it is an acceptable one in Russia.
Sunday, November 27, 2016 The Western War On Truth
The effort to discredit truthtellers has produced a catalogue of websites where reliable information can be found, and readers are flocking to the sites on the list. Moreover, the effort to discredit truthtellers shows that Western governments and their presstitutes are intolerant of truth and diverse opinion and are committed to forcing people to accept self-serving government lies as truth.
Wednesday, November 23, 2016 It Is Up To Us
if Sessions does support torture, he is disqualified as attorney general, because the Constitution prohibits torture. The US cannot afford yet another attorney general who does not support the US Constitution. If Pompeo actually is so poorly informed that he opposed the Iran settlement, he is not fit to be CIA director.
Tuesday, November 15, 2016 Trump's Opponents See Normal Americans as Deplorables
America is a country without an honest media. A country without an honest judiciary. Without an honest government. Without an honest legislature. Without honest schools and universities. A country whose morals are confused by propaganda.
Friday, November 11, 2016 The Anti-Trump Protesters Are Tools of the Oligarchy
Some believe that Trump is a ruse conducted by the Oligarchy. However, as Hillary is the bought-and-paid-for representative of the Oligarchy, such an elaborate ruse is unnecessary. It is preferable for the Oligarchy to win on its own platform than to install a president on the opposite platform and then change him around.
Wednesday, November 9, 2016 The Working Class Won The Election
Hillary is down, but not the Oligarchs. If Trump is advised to be conciliatory, to hold out his hand, and to take the establishment into his government, the American people will again be disappointed. In a country whose institutions have been so completely corrupted by the Oligarchy, it is difficult to achieve real change without bloodshed.
Wednesday, November 9, 2016 Progressives Find "White Trash" More Threatening Than Nuclear War
The progressives have totally discredited themselves just as the presstitutes have done. Their need for a bogyman to nourish their hysteria indicates serious psychological disturbance. They actually prefer the risk of Armageddon to peace among nuclear powers.
Friday, November 4, 2016 Can The Oligarchy Still Steal The Presidential Election?
What happens if the FBI recommends the indictment of the president? Even insouciant Americans would see the cover-up if the attorney general refused to prosecute the case. Americans would lose all confidence in the government. Chaos would rule. Chaos can be revolutionary, and that is not good for oligarchs.
Tuesday, November 1, 2016 Can The American People Defeat The Oligarchy That Rules Them?
Not content with 90% control of the US media, the Oligarchy wants more concentration and more control. Looks like they will be getting it, thanks to the corrupt US government. The Federal Trade Commission is supposed to enforce US anti-trust law. Instead, the federal agency routinely violates US anti-trust law by permitting monopoly concentrations of business interests.
Sunday, October 30, 2016 The Director of the FBI Reopens the Hillary Case
Possibly Trump, as his enemies allege, is just another fake, like Obama who misled the electorate. However, Trump attacks the Oligarchy so strongly that it is hard to believe that Trump isn't real. Trump is asking for a bullet like John F. Kennedy, like Robert Kennedy, like Martin Luther King, like George Wallace.
Friday, October 28, 2016 The Failure of Democracy -- How The Oligarchs Plan To Steal The Election
What convinces me that the Oligarchy intends to steal the election is the vast difference between the presstitutes' reporting and the facts on the ground. According to the presstitutes, Hillary is so far ahead that there is no point in Trump supporters bothering to vote. Hillary has won the election before the vote. Hillary has been declared a 93% sure winner.
Thursday, October 27, 2016 What Is At Stake In The Election
We are about to have an election in which the important issue has played no role. And yet allegedly we are the exceptional, indispensable people, a people's democracy protected by a free press. In truth, this mythical description of America is merely a cloak for the rule of the Oligarchs. And the Oligarchs are risking life on earth for their continual supremacy.
Wednesday, October 26, 2016 Does The Russian Government Have A Reality Disconnect?
The rise of the American neoconservatives and their doctrine of US world hegemony has given the United States the expansionist ideology formerly attributed to the Soviets. Only this time the expansionist ideology is real. Yet, Russia's foreign minister, Lavrov, said today that "we [the US and Russia] have no ideological differences which make the Cold War inevitable."
Tuesday, October 25, 2016 Election Potpourri --The Presstitutes Have Set Up The Election To Be Stolen
Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, their careers, their hopes, because corrupt bought-and-paid-for-Washington enabled Globalism to send the futures of the American people to China and India. Millions of Americans lost their homes, because the corrupt Federal Reserve came down on the side of five "banks too big to fail" at the expense of the American people.
Monday, October 24, 2016 By Cooperating With Washington On Syria, Russia Walked Into A Trap
The Russians are aware and disturbed that Washington has made the situation between the US and Russia more dangerous than during the Cold War. Vladimir Putin himself has stated that the West does not hear his warnings. In an effort to avoid war, Putin wrings everything possible out of diplomacy. He enters into agreements with Washington that he must know will not be kept.
Friday, October 21, 2016 Rigged Elections Are An American Tradition
Stolen elections are the American tradition. Elections are stolen at every level -- state, local, and federal. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley's theft of the Chicago and, thereby, Illinois vote for John F. Kennedy is legendary. The Republican US Supreme Court's theft of the 2000 presidential election from Al Gore by preventing the Florida vote recount is another legendary example.
Thursday, October 20, 2016 Hillary's War Crime
All sorts of lies were told about Gaddafi and Libya, just as lies were told about Saddam Hussein and are told today about Syria and Russia. A British Parliamentary Report concluded unambiguously that the Western peoples were fed lies by their governments in order to gain acceptance for the destruction of Libya, and that Libya was destroyed because Gaddafi was regarded as an obstacle to Western hegemony.
Wednesday, October 19, 2016 Hillary is running against locker room talk and the Russians
Would you rather face a situation in which a few women were groped, or be vaporized in nuclear war? If you don't know the correct answer, you are too stupid to be alive. Are the American women really going to elect Hillary as a rebuff to Trump's lewd talk? If so, they will confirm that it was a mistake to give women the vote, although there will be no one left alive to record the mistake in the history books.
Monday, October 17, 2016 The Real Humanitarian Crisis Is Not Aleppo
No one has asked why the US is determined to overthrow a democratically elected Syrian government that is supported by the Syrian people. No one has asked why Obama is empowered to remove the president of Syria by siccing US-supplied jihadists, which the presstitutes misrepresent as "moderate rebels," on the Syrian people. Washington, of course, has no acceptable answer to the question, and that is why it is not asked.
Thursday, October 13, 2016 Regime Change In The Philippines
President Rodrigo Duterte has indicated that he intends a more independent foreign policy. He has announced upcoming visits to China and Russia, and his foreign minister has declared that it is time for the Philippines to end its subservience to Washington. In this sense, regime change has already occurred.
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 Washington Leads The World To War
What must the world think watching the US presidential campaign? Over time US political campaigns have become more unreal and less related to voters' concerns, but the current one is so unreal as to be absurd.
Friday, September 30, 2016 Bring Back The Cold War
There can be no cooperation between the US and Russia over Syria, because the two government's goals are entirely different. Russia wants to defeat ISIS, and the US wants to use ISIS to overthrow Assad. This should be clear to the Russians. Yet they still enter into "agreements" that Washington has no intention of keeping.
Wednesday, September 28, 2016 Can Russia Learn From Brazil's Fate?
Putin is a careful and thoughtful leader of Russia, but he is not an economist. He has confidence in neoliberal Elvira Nabiulina, Washington's choice to head the Russian central bank. Nabiuina believes that the assault on the ruble is due to impersonal "global market forces," not to Washington's financial clout.
Sunday, September 25, 2016 He Who Hesitates Is Lost And Russia Hesitated
Russia had a victory for Syria and democracy in its hands, but Putin lacked the decisiveness of a Napoleon or a Stalin and let his victory slip away as a result of false hopes that Washington could be trusted. Now a Russian/Syrian victory would require driving the Turks and Americans out of Syria.
Monday, September 19, 2016 Will Russia Surrender?
If the Russian government has finally arrived at the conclusion that Washington is determined to destroy political stability in Syria and to replace it with chaos, it has taken a long time. The Russian government has studiously avoided this conclusion, because once diplomacy is acknowledged as useless, force confronts force. In today's context that means thermo-nuclear war and the end of life on Earth.
