This paper has not been written by a microbiologist or virologist but by a scholar with a background in security politics, military strategy, and history in an attempt to understand the present crisis, which demands knowledge in several disciplines. We know that the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) with its disease COVID-19 is very contagious. Many people... Read More

When Donald Trump suggested renaming Fort Bragg after Al Sharpton, it was a punchline. Contrary to the former Presidents wishes, ten Army posts named after Confederate generals are to be renamed. Trump's joke could well be prophetic. To guess what kind of names the powers that be might go for, we can look to the... Read More
The Malian coup of June 2021 signals a deep crisis in the sustainability of French neo-imperialism - in general, in the Sahel, and in Mali particularly. It raises the likelihood of an enhanced US and NATO presence, in line with the US militarization of imperial overlordship of Africa that it had previously delegated to former... Read More

The long awaited summit between Presidents Putin and Biden has finally taken place, but was it a success? Will it change anything? The answer to this question very much depends on one’s expectations. Let’s take a closer look beginning with the context. Context of the summit Just about the only thing which both US and... Read More
Let’s start with the written word. In Geneva, the US and Russia issued a joint statement in which “we reaffirm the principle that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” Assorted Dr Strangeloves will cringe – but at least the world has it in writing, and may breathe a sigh of...

The Young Turks have always been a fake alternative media outlet that pushes the same talking points as CNN. They are now in a war against Aaron Mate, Max Blumenthal and Jimmy Dore, defending the CIA and State Department’s war in Syria. They are accusing these guys of all being Russian agents because they don’t... Read More

Question 1-- What makes your theory about the origins of SARS-CoV-2 so controversial, is not that it suggests that the pathogen was created in a lab, but that it is, in fact, a bioweapon that was deliberately released by US agents prosecuting a secret war on presumed enemies of the United States. Here's the "money... Read More
Biden’s Russophobia means the Summit will fail
With the exception of his perseverance in a long overdue withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Joe Biden has been assiduously pursuing policies that make the world a more dangerous place for Americans, up to and including opening up the country’s southern border to waves of illegal immigration. Ironically, if an opinion poll were to be taken... Read More
In September 1943, the US Army created “Operation Capricious,” a secret biowarfare program described as purely defensive against insect pests enemy nations might use against America by bombing America with germ-infected insects. Under the direction of George W. Merck, president of Merck & Co. The program stockpiled bacillus anthracis (anthrax), clostridium botulinum (botulism), and other... Read More
But isn’t she vaxxed?
The G7 AKA the Boypussy Defense League is having a big meeting. The world is noticing they are not serious people. All they do is whine about China, which is a serious country. RT: That is just such utter bullshit. The “positive alternative” has been seen by everyone since the end of World War II.... Read More

This book is significant not only because of its detailed examination of globalisation, unipolarity, multipolarity, and associated themes such as foreign policies, superpower rivalries, geopolitics and diverse branches such as the meaning of nationalism, and ethnos, but because it provides an insight into an important school of thought in Russia and further afield. Leonid Savin... Read More

Do not “pursue an investigation into the origin of COVID-19 because it would ‘open a can of worms’ if it continued”. This was the instruction given by the US State Department to its investigators over a year ago, as reported by Vanity Fair in a long piece on Lab Leak. State Department investigators were warned...

Did COVID-19 jump from animals to humans due to random mutations? Or was a bat coronavirus deliberately tweaked to infect humans via gain-of-function research? The topic has been hotly debated since January 2020. But the debate was suppressed by the world's most powerful institutions, including the medical and scientific establishments and the media, until May... Read More
"Take away this pudding; it has no theme," is a comment attributed to Winston Churchill, when a disappointing dessert was put in front of him. Writers have used Churchill's remark to describe a foreign policy that lacks coherence or centrality of purpose. For most of our lifetimes, this has not been true of the United... Read More

The era of so-called industrial deregulation and globalized free trade, whose icon was the World Trade Organization (established in 1994), has been grotesquely misshaped into an era of restrictive trade, and mean-spirited and often petty recriminations in the form of targeted sanctions exercised mainly by the NATO powers. A strategy once applied with some sense... Read More

Previously: There is Nothing Interesting in the Fauci Emails China is inching dangerously close to dangerous anti-Semitism. RT: China’s Foreign Ministry blasted the resurgent interest in the Covid-19 lab-origin theory, noting that the journalist behind a report about Wuhan scientists falling ill is the same one who peddled lies that led to the Iraq War....

US Military Will Use Chinese-Made Drones, Despite “Hacking” Rhetoric
This is a seemingly meaningless story that speaks to a bigger issue. I’ll hit you with the scope after the facts…! RT: After years of spying allegations and restrictions, the Pentagon has allowed the military to use two Chinese-made drones. The move has already stirred controversy. A recent Pentagon report seen by the Hill found... Read More
Through the long Memorial Day weekend, anyone who read the newspapers or watched television could not miss or be unmoved by it: Story after story after story of the fallen, of those who had given the "last full measure of devotion" to their country. Heart-rending is an apt description of those stories; and searing are... Read More

It's been decades since I last read George Orwell's 1984, but portions of that classic dystopian novel have become part of our common political culture. There's that famous scene in which an orator is giving a lengthy wartime speech at a political rally, praising the heroic ally of Eurasia and denouncing the arch-foe of Eastasia,... Read More
Biden Punts on Russia and Takes Some Heat on Afghanistan
Possibly the best news to come out of the past week has been the announcement of a possibly Egyptian mediated cease fire between Israel and Gaza late last Thursday. The fighting killed 243 Palestinians, including 66 children, versus twelve Israelis including two children and also did major damage to schools, medical facilities and other infrastructure...

Andrei Martyanov is in a class by himself. A third wave baby boomer, born in the early 1960s in Baku, in the Caucasus, then part of the former USSR, he’s arguably the foremost military analyst in the Russian sphere, living and working in the US, writing in English for a global audience, and always excelling...

Greater Idaho “What is to be done?” ask white advocates. There are countless strategies, but a crucial one is to build power on the local level. One way to do this is to secede from states and either join or create other states. The Left is already trying to do this. It wants the District... Read More
The US government's war on political dissent is being guided by private left-wing and Zionist organizations, National Justice can report. An internal document regarding the Pentagon's "Countering Extremism Working Group" (CEWG) from last April names the individuals and groups that are slated for membership in a subcommittee that specializes in setting targets for the Defense...

For more than a year now, I've been publishing a series of articles and columns discussing the origins of the global Covid-19 epidemic and strongly arguing that the outbreak represented an American biowarfare attack against China (and Iran). Here are links to the three major articles, with the last appearing a week ago: American Pravda:... Read More

On Sunday, 60 Minutes aired a report about UFOs. Journalist Bill Whitaker interviewed several people from the military to discuss the allegation put forward by the Pentagon that there are ultra-advanced aircraft flying around the earth for unknown reasons. You should of course watch it and draw your own conclusions about what is going on... Read More
So is the country’s military; No more band of brothers
According to the Pentagon, 71% of Americans aged 17 to 24 – roughly 24 million out of 34 million people—are ineligible to join the military because of “obesity, lack of high school diploma, or a criminal record.” — To fill the ranks, the Pentagon and CIA recruit women with two moms and cisgender millenials of...

Earlier by Ann Coulter: "I Will Not Be Scienced"—Experts Wrong, Covid Could Have Come From Wuhan Lab After All I have been enthusiastically promoting Nicholas Wade's long article on the origins of the COVID virus. Wade compares the two common theories: (a) the "wet market" theory, that the virus jumped from bats, or from bats... Read More
American Diplomats Are Outclassed
With the exception of the impending departure of U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan, if it occurs, the White House seems to prefer to use aggression to deter adversaries rather than finesse. The recent exchanges between Secretary of State Tony Blinken and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi at a meeting in Alaska demonstrate how Beijing... Read More

We have entered a new era in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The old days of Israel committing war crimes against the downtrodden, captive Palestinians are over. The world has done zero to address Israel’s fundamental crime of nation-stealing: a megalith crime that can only be described as the longest and most vicious war crime in our... Read More
Henry Kissinger, 97, Henry the K. for those he keeps close, is either a Delphic oracle-style strategic thinker or a certified war criminal for those kept not so close. He now seems to have been taking time off his usual Divide and Rule stock in trade – advising the combo behind POTUS, a.k.a. Crash Test... Read More

America Makes Aircraft Carriers, China Makes Money
First, America increasingly relies on strong-arm tactics instead of competence. For example, in the de facto 5G competition, Washington cannot offer Europe a better product at a better price, so it forbids European countries to buy from China. The US cannot compete with China in manufacturing, so it resorts to a trade war. The US... Read More

As every fan of the old Perry Mason show remembers, courtroom witnesses swear "to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." There's a reason for that particular choice of words. A pattern of selective omissions in an otherwise entirely truthful presentation can easily mislead us as much as any outright lie.... Read More
85 people were killed and 147 injured -- mostly children -- in a ruthless bombing of the Sayed Al-Shuhada school in Kabul. The school formally educates girls. The attackers were targeting the Hazara population, which is part of Afghanistan's Shia Muslim minority. The latest bloodshed threatens to plunge Afghanistan into a sectarian conflict as the...

The tender friendship of China people may bring big time happiness.
The anti-Asian hate attacks by the blacks are continuing all across the United States. Most of the news outlets are covering them up, even as they line the Twitter page of the NYPD Hate Crimes account. Here are a few recent tweets from them, with the newest being only a few hours old: The media... Read More

One cannot but feel mildly amused at the theatrical spectacle of the US troop pullout from Afghanistan, its completion day now postponed for maximum PR impact to 9/11, 2021. Nearly two decades and a staggering US$2 trillion after this Forever War was launched by a now immensely indebted empire, the debacle can certainly be interpreted... Read More
Even if “won,” endless wars like our 20 year assault on Afghanistan would not benefit our actual national interest in the slightest. So why do these wars continue endlessly? Because they are so profitable to powerful and well-connected special interests. In fact, the worst news possible for the Beltway military contractor/think tank complex would be... Read More
The Russian Free Press (svpressa) Interviewed me on the Topic of Avoiding Conflict Between the Russian Federation and the United States.

The American Ruling Class is deliberately attacking the country’s core demographic group at just the same time that it is picking fights with major powers like Russia, China, and even Turkey. The Biden Administration is demonizing whites as the main domestic threat and is developing a complicated racial caste system that punishes whites for their... Read More
Few people, apart from specialists, may have heard of the JCPOA Joint Commission. That’s the group in charge of a Sisyphean task: the attempt to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal through a series of negotiations in Vienna. The Iranian negotiating team was back in Vienna yesterday, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi.... Read More

Before we look into what just happened in the Ukraine, we need to first recall the sequence of events which lead to the current situation. I will try to make a short summary (skipping a lot of details) in the bullet-point style: Whether Ze initially intended to stop the war in the eastern Ukraine we... Read More

The US has been fighting two wars: with Ukraine against Russia, and with Russia against Climate. Both are very costly, both bring no profit to Americans, both are entirely unnecessary, but both are essential for the Biden regime at this time, as the Covid pandemic runs out of steam. How will matters proceed? The Ukrainian... Read More
During 2016 CIA director John Brennan and FBI director James Comey, together with the corrupt Democrat party, began orchestrating Russiagate in order to prevent Trump from reducing the risk of nuclear war by normalizing relations with Russia. President Trump tried to nip a New Cold War in the bud, but that was not in the... Read More

Putin’s address to the Russian Federal Assembly – a de facto State of the Nation – was a judo move that left Atlanticist sphere hawks particularly stunned. The “West” was not even mentioned by name. Only indirectly, or via a delightful metaphor, Kipling’s Jungle Book. Foreign policy was addressed only at the end, almost as... Read More
We've been in Afghanistan 20 years, Joe Biden's generals told him. All we need is a little more time. The president overruled them, ordering a complete withdrawal of American troops by Sept. 11. Madiha Afzal and Michael O'Hanlon of the Brookings Institution articulate the opposition to Biden's decision to call it quits. Remove the U.S.... Read More
Biden, like presidents before him, is caught in the trap between an extremist-dominated Israel and the all-powerful domestic Israel Lobby. Donald Trump, who was elected President of the United States in 2016, may have won due to voters attracted by his pledge to end many of the “stupid” wars that the American military was involved...

The F-16 really is a beautiful piece of engineering. It is the Silver Wraith of the skies.

When President Joe Biden announced he would withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the 20th anniversary of 9/11, GOP hawks like Sens. Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham responded predictably. "Grave mistake," muttered McConnell. "Insane," said Graham, "dumber than dirt and... dangerous." Of more interest were the responses of conservative Republicans who commended the president....

Suppose the U.S. built and operated a military base in Germany on property confiscated from Jews during the Holocaust. America, Jewish Americans, Germany, and Israel would have reached a principled resolution years ago. Now consider Incirlik (EEN-jeer-leek) Air Base in Turkey. American taxpayers and the Army Corps of Engineers built it 67 years ago. Its... Read More
The United States military was sent into Afghanistan two decades ago on the basis of a lie. The warmonger neoconservative George W. Bush regime lied to the American people, to US soldiers, and to the world that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, that bin... Read More
Amazing news over the week-end: President Lukashenko has declared that Biden gave the order to kill him in a coup organized by the CIA. Now, we all know that Lukashenko says all sorts of things, many of them false or plain silly. Except that the Russian FSB has confirmed it all! According to the Russians,... Read More
