Judgment Day for John Brennan The agents and officials who conducted this seditious attack on the presidency never thought they'd be held accountable for their crimes. But they were wrong, and now their day of reckoning is fast approaching. The main players in this palace coup are about to be exposed, criminally charged and prosecuted. Some of them will probably wind up in jail.

China and Russia - Whoopin' Uncle Sam at His Own Game Your Geopolitical Quiz for the Day: Two countries are embroiled in a ferocious rivalry. One country's meteoric growth has put it on a path to become the world's biggest economic superpower while the other country appears to be slipping into irreversible decline. Which country will lead the world into the future?

Tit for Tat? Why Did Mueller Let Trump Off the Hook? Why did Robert Mueller end the Russia investigation when he did? He could have let it drag it out for another year or so and severely hurt Trump's chances for reelection. But he didn't do that. Why?

The Media's 6 Biggest Lies About North Korea The Trump delegation surprised Kim with a take-it-or-leave-it ultimatum that included the "elimination of the DPRK's "chemical and biological weapons, "their ballistic missile program" along with complete denuclearization.

Trump Did NOT Convince Kim to Ditch His Nukes. China Did Donald Trump thinks his "maximum pressure" campaign persuaded North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. But it's a bunch of baloney. The reason Kim Jong-un is planning to denuclearize is because China adamantly opposes nuclear weapons on the peninsula. That's the whole deal in a nutshell.

Washington's Century-Long War on Russia Washington's war on Russia has ebbed and flowed depending on the political situation in Moscow -- it has never completely ended. The US has always treated Russia with suspicion, contempt and brutality. During the Cold War, when Russia's global activities put a damper on Washington's depredations around the world, relations remained stretched to the breaking point.

The Obnoxious Pence Shows Why Korea Must End US Occupation Pence flaunted his contempt for the Korean people by humiliating their leaders, shrugging off their hospitality, and scoffing at their joint efforts for peace. He acted like an arrogant proconsul who only deigns to visit his subjects in order to treat them with condescension and scorn.

If There's a War in Korea, Blame Trump The United States has never lifted its sanctions on North Korea, never treated their leaders with anything except contempt and brutality, and never made any sincere attempt to end the hostilities. Washington will not even sit down with a delegation from the DPRK to air their differences or discuss a path forward.

Turkish Invasion Pits Neocons Against Traditional Imperialists The present disaster that is unfolding in the Afrin canton in Syria's northwest corner could have been avoided had the Trump administration abstained from announcing that it planned a permanent military presence in east Syria, which implied its tacit support for an independent Kurdish state. This, in fact, was the trigger for the current crisis, the provocation that set the dominoes in motion.

Washington Widens the War in Syria by Provoking Turkey On January 18, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced the creation of a 30,000-man Border Security Force (BSF) to occupy East Syria. Tillerson's announcement may have prompted some unexpected apologies and back-tracking, but the policy remains the same. Washington will persist in its effort to divide the country and remove Assad until an opposing force prevents it from doing so.

Trump's Plan B for Syria: Occupation and Intimidation The Russian president is gradually replacing Washington as the guarantor of regional security. This is a tectonic development and one that US power brokers will definitely regret in the future. A "changing of the guard" is underway in the energy-rich Middle East, and Washington is the odd-man-out.

Oprah for President, Really? The fact that Oprah really has no understanding of how to negotiate with congress, staff an administration, or appoint judges to the bench, makes one think that Democratic honchos are merely using her as a stalking horse to shoehorn themselves back into power so they can -- once again -- enjoy the spoils of war.

Will Trump Use "Human Rights" to Kill the Iran Nukes Deal? If the president does in fact reimpose sanctions, (sometime after January 13) the United States will be in "material noncompliance" with the terms of the nuclear agreement and all bets will be off.

Jill Stein in the Crosshairs: the Russia Investigation Shifts to Clinton's Political Rivals The Russia-gate investigation has zeroed-in on Green Party candidate Jill Stein, proving that the probe is not an attempt to determine whether Russia meddled in the 2016 elections, but a crude weapon to bully the political rivals of Hillary Clinton, her dissolute allies in the bureaucracy.

Why the Democrats Will Run Michele Obama in 2020 Michelle already knows the drill, that's what makes her the perfect candidate. She knows the president is a meaningless figurehead. She knows the whole thing is a charade. She knows that the rich will get richer while working people get stomped on. She's been there, she's done that.

Tom Friedman's Paean to a Saudi Tyrant Ignites NYT Comments-Storm Is Friedman a supporter of the power-hungry Crown Prince? Does he think that rounding up one's political rivals, hanging them upside down and beating them with rubber hoses is an acceptable way to conduct an anti-corruption campaign? Did Friedman know that the object of his man-crush is a reprobate despot who, in the last year alone, oversaw the beheadings of over 150 people?

ISIS Last Stand: End Times for the Caliphate The western media has entirely ignored the defeat of ISIS at Abu Kamal mainly because it was the Russian-led coalition that delivered the final blow. In the current climate in the US, any facts that fail to support the anti-Russia hysteria that has swept the country, are scrubbed from publication.

Brennan and Clapper: Elder Statesmen or Serial Fabricators? After an arduous 12 month-long investigation involving both Houses of Congress, a Special Counsel, and a small army of high-paid Washington attorneys, the only straw Brennan has found to hold on to, is a few innocuous advertisements posted on Facebook and Twitter that had no noticeable impact on the election at all.

Is Hillary Just the "Fall Guy" for the Intel Agencies and their Moneybag Bosses? The media no longer tries to support their narrative with evidence or eyewitnesses. The major media now simply tells people what they want them to think and leave it at that. Even so, it doesn't require much critical thinking to see the holes in the Russia hacking story. One merely needs to suspend judgment long enough to see that main claims all emerge from (Democratic) sources who have every reason to mislead the public.

"Anthem Protesters" Should Stop Mucking Around and Make Their Demands The owners are going to do whatever they're told to do (within reason, of course) if they want this protest nightmare to go away. And they do want it to go away. The anthem protests could very well produce results that no one could have ever imagined. It's worth a shot at least.
