Here are the Russians again wasting their time and energy at US-dominated International organizations by taking their concern with Ukraine’s military attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear plant to the UN. Why does the Kremlin think that Washington or the UN cares? Why don’t the Russians simply take out the Ukrainian artillery or missile positions that... Read More
Why did Nancy Pelosi go to Taiwan?
A good friend of mine, learning of the impending visit of Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, recalled Homer’s description of Helen of Troy, “The face that launched a thousand ships and burnt the towers of Ilium.” Well, Nancy ain’t no Helen of Troy, but she might nevertheless be in the...

China pushes back against US-led military intervention in Asia
Every leader and top official now in power in the so-called Western World seems to have forgotten that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was founded in 1949 as an alliance that was ostensibly defensive in nature, intended to counter the expansion of Soviet style communism in Europe. That role continued to be the raison... Read More
It was obvious that after 4 years of the peacemonger Donald Trump, a big reason of why the Jews were in such a rush to overthrow him is that they wanted wars. Hillary Clinton had campaigned on war with Russia and others. When Biden came in, you had these 3 main enemies: Russia, China, and... Read More
The meeting of the SCO Ministerial Council in Tashkent this past Friday involved some very serious business. That was the key preparatory reunion previous to the SCO summit in mid-September in fabled Samarkand, where the SCO will release a much-awaited “Declaration of Samarkand”. What happened in Tashkent was predictably unreported across the collective West and... Read More
As in a Greek tragedy whose protagonist brings about precisely the fate that he has sought to avoid, the US/NATO confrontation with Russia in Ukraine is achieving just the opposite of America’s aim of preventing China, Russia and their allies from acting independently of U.S. control over their trade and investment policy. Naming China as... Read More
Government and the media work together to promote war on Russia
[This article is derived from a speech I made at the July 23rd Peace and Freedom Rally in Kingston New York] There are some things that I believe to be true about the anarchy that purports to be US foreign policy. First, and most important, I do not believe that any voter cast a ballot... Read More
Oil and gas, wheat and grains, missiles and drones – the hottest topics in global geopolitics today – were all on the agenda in Tehran this week. Photo Credit: The Cradle
The Tehran summit uniting Iran-Russia-Turkey was a fascinating affair in more ways than one. Ostensibly about the Astana peace process in Syria, launched in 2017, the summit joint statement duly noted that Iran, Russia and (recently rebranded) Turkiye will continue, “cooperating to eliminate terrorists” in Syria and “won’t accept new facts in Syria in the...

American soldiers are already “boots on the ground”
The White House keeps insisting that it will not directly involve American soldiers in the war in Ukraine, but it keeps taking steps that will inevitably lead to a large-scale open combat role for the US against Russia. Among the most recent moves to increase the pressure on the Kremlin, Biden revealed at a NATO... Read More
So, Joe Biden, the alleged President of America, was supposed to go to this meeting with the Arabs and beg them for oil. Instead, the wacky sonovabitch strapped a bomb to his chest and ran into a crowd of sheiks, yelling “Ukrainia Akbar!” before clicking the detonator. Reuters: [citation needed] Biden, who began his first... Read More
At the NATO summit in Madrid, Finland was invited to join the alliance. What does this mean for Finland? If Russian President Vladimir Putin breaches the 830-mile Finnish border, the United States will rise to Helsinki's defense and fight Russia on Finland's side. What does Finland's membership in NATO mean for America? If Putin makes... Read More
When the Americans liberalized Russia, they conquered her
The Kremlin’s Liberal Spokesman Says BRICS Not a Substitute for G20, Thus Elevating the West’s policy-making forum Over Russia’s BRICS. By continuing to supply Russia’s NATO enemies with energy, the Kremlin is throwing away a powerful lever by providing NATO countries the time they need to acquire alternatives to Russian energy, thus minimizing the damage... Read More
I dislike Vucic because of his Uncanny Valley face and inability to commit as pro-Russia, instead identifying as “neutral.” However, he deserves big credit for being the first head of state to actually say in public what I’ve been saying since March: World War III has already begun. The US funding the Ukraine military to... Read More
The Suicide Spectacular Summer Show, currently on screen across Europe, proceeds in full regalia, much to the astonishment of virtually the whole Global South: a trashy, woke Gotterdammerung remake, with Wagnerian grandeur replaced by twerking. Decadent Roman Emperors at least exhibited some degree of pathos. Here we’re just faced by a toxic mix of hubris,... Read More
The Kremlin intended Russia’s intervention in Ukraine to be limited to Donbass. The purpose was to drive out the Ukrainian and neo-Nazi military forces that were occupying parts of the two independent republics and shelling the residents. Had Russia intervened eight years previously, the intervention could have been limited and quickly concluded. But the Kremlin,... Read More
NATO is saying they’re going to power World War III with windmills. They announced this last week when they were declaring Russia and China global enemies that need to be destroyed (basically just another standard declaration of a world war). Reuters: So, Russia is an existential threat because of… Ukraine democracy values or… something. But... Read More

Once upon a time, in a galaxy not far away, the Empire of Chaos launched the so-called “War on Terror” against an impoverished cemetery of empires at the crossroads of Central and South Asia. In the name of national security, the land of the Afghans was bombed until the Pentagon ran out of targets, as... Read More
I seem to be the only prescient person on the foreign policy scene. But not Washington, not Europe, and not Russia are interested in what I have to say. I said that it was a strategic mistake for the Kremlin to limit its military operation in Ukraine and to impose restraints on the military action... Read More
Fast but not furious, the Global South is revving up. The key takeaway of the BRICS+ summit in Beijing, held in sharp contrast with the G7 in the Bavarian Alps, is that both West Asia’s Iran and South America’s Argentina officially applied for BRICS membership. The Iranian Foreign Ministry has highlighted how BRICS has “a... Read More
Once upon a time, there existed an Iron Curtain which divided the continent of Europe. Coined by former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the term was in reference to the then-Soviet Union’s efforts to create a physical and ideological boundary with the west. The latter, for its part, pursued a policy of containment against the... Read More
Notice: New article style officially in play: “Anglin’s Sloppy Joes – Sloppy Writing for Sloppy Lads.” We will be doing this until I think of something better. Imagine that Jews hate Russia so much that in the middle of the collapse of their satanic child sacrifice swindle, female Jews are still able to whine about... Read More
I remember when others tooted my horn. The French government of President Francois Mitterrand bestowed upon me the French Legion of Honor for the restoration of economic science. President Reagan sent his Budget Director, Jim Miller, to the award ceremony with a letter from Reagan giving me credit for Reagan’s successful economic policy that cured... Read More
As I have emphasized for a number of years, the Kremlin’s passivity in the face of provocations encourages more and worse provocations. I have expressed concern that the provocations will cross a red line, and the Kremlin will cease being a passive receiver of provocations. When that time comes, the West might not be prepared... Read More
A wider war is Washington’s goal
As I have many times written, the Kremlin’s Ukraine operation cannot be limited. Washington will not permit it to be limited. Washington has already widened the conflict, and is now widening the conflict further. The insane Jewish neoconservatives who have control over US foreign policy have prevailed on tiny, helpless Lithuania to violate the agreement... Read More
Imagine living in a country that had national pride instead of pride in teaching gay anal fisting to preschoolers. New York Post:
The American establishment believes that everyone on earth is as braindead as fat, vaxed, drug-addled, porn-addicted, negro-worshiping, homosexual Americans. They think they can just keep declaring themselves to be the center of morality in the universe, keep declaring that something is true simply because they said it. Meanwhile, everyone in the world who isn’t a... Read More
The speaker of the Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, may have created the defining acronym for the emerging multipolar world: “the new G8”. As Volodin noted, “the United States has created conditions with its own hands so that countries wishing to build an equal dialogue and mutually beneficial relations will actually form a ‘new G8’ together with... Read More
I don’t even understand what is going on here. Is he joking? This “war” has been going on for four months, and the Ukraine has done nothing but lose territory, nonstop, the whole time. The head of NATO just called for a surrender. What is Zelensky saying here? How can he take back territory he... Read More
People look at me and say “man, it must be great to be Andrew Anglin and be right about everything all the time.” But it is not so. It’s a great burden I carry. The NATO is an organ of the US/ZOG machine. It’s possible that there are still people in the State Department trying... Read More
Nothing should better qualify me to write about world affairs at the moment – and Western meddling in Ukraine – than the fact that I have intimately followed the twists and turns of Israeli politics for two decades. We will turn to the wider picture in a moment. But before that, let us consider developments... Read More
As the valiant and totally destroyed Ukrainian military prepares for their final assault on Moscow, they continue to lose territory at a rapid and totally humiliating pace. This is the price of victory. RT: Say what you want about the Ukrainians, but you can’t say they don’t have class. Torching a church on the way... Read More
Look at this map of Ukraine. Can you see what's going on? The Russians are creating a buffer zone along their western perimeter. Why are they doing that? What benefit do they derive from a buffer zone? Well, a buffer zone creates a distance between Russia and Ukraine which Putin thinks is necessary since Ukraine... Read More
Among the nations aiding Ukraine in its resistance to the Russian invasion, America has been foremost. Yet the war interests of our two nations are not identical. To the U.S., the imperative is that the war be contained, not expanded, and that we not be drawn into a wider war with Russia. For the independence,... Read More
You know, when I saw the media starting to say that victory in the Ukraine is impossible, with the New York Times Editorial Board coming out and saying it, and then Joe Biden’s initial refusal to send the HIMARS, I thought that we were really going to see a backtrack, where the US admitted the... Read More
I suspect the Kremlin has concluded that the limited intervention in Ukraine was a mistake. I don’t mean that the Kremlin will fail in its effort to drive all Ukrainian military units out of Donbass. The mistake the Kremlin made was in thinking that the military intervention could be limited. The US and NATO are... Read More
Yeah I’m sure the Ukraine won’t use these systems to attack Russia, just like they didn’t use those attack helicopters to attack Russia. Let’s just keep this thing going a couple extra weeks… RT: Biden earlier this week said he wasn’t going to do this, but that was apparently just yet another senior moment. The... Read More
Maybe Joe Brandon is just concerned about being responsible for the Ukraine launching missiles into Russia. But they’ve already been attacking Russia. More likely, in the background, the Ukraine is losing institutional support in the establishment because they’re getting so felted. Like, the war is basically over. What are they going to do with long-range... Read More
A blitzkrieg Russian invasion of Ukraine it was not. Marshall Zhukov, the Soviet Union’s famed tank general, must be rolling in his grave. Had Stalin still been in the Kremlin, Russia’s generals and defense minister would have by now been shot. At that time, the Red Army and its 50,000 tanks were believed able to... Read More
The funny part is that Americans aren’t even aware that their government is at war with Russia. People from the government sometimes say it, but then they deny it. I guess Americans have a lot of things to think about, and can’t really process the idea that we are at the beginning of a third... Read More
“Let’s not expect from our media the truth about the Ukrainian turpitude and exactions,” says Colonel Jacques Gillemain. The New York Times has abandoned the neoconservative demand for victory over Russia: “A decisive military victory for Ukraine over Russia, in which Ukraine regains all the territory Russia has seized since 2014, is not a realistic...

Three months after the start of Russia’s Operation Z in Ukraine, the battle of The West (12 percent) against The Rest (88 percent) keeps metastasizing. Yet the narrative – oddly – remains the same. On Monday, from Davos, World Economic Forum Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab introduced Ukrainian comedian-cum-President Volodymyr Zelensky, on the latest leg of... Read More
A week ago, we made note of a May 11 New York Times news article, documenting that all was not going well for the U.S. in Ukraine, and a companion opinion piece hinting that a shift in direction might be in order. Now on May 19, “THE EDITORIAL BOARD,” the full Magisterium of the Times,... Read More
Last week, President Biden signed a massive $40 billion military aid bill for Ukraine. Who cares that inflation is killing the American economy and mothers can't even get baby formula. For Washington, spending on war and empire always seems to trump America’s interests. To put this giveaway to Ukraine in perspective: just since late February,... Read More
NATO has raised the stakes by flooding Ukraine with heavy weaponry and trying to prolong the conflict, says Scott Ritter, a military analyst and former US Marine intelligence officer. Sputnik: In a recent interviews with Sputnik you said that if Russia is "able to achieve some sort of demonstrable battlefield victory of such a large... Read More
Hybrid War is being fought predominantly in the economic/financial battleground – and the pain dial for the collective West will only go up. The ironclad fictional “narrative” imposed all across NATOstan is that Ukraine is “winning”. So why would weapons peddler retrofitted as Pentagon head Lloyd “Raytheon” Austin literally beg since late February to have... Read More
"The demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century," said Russia's new ruler Vladimir Putin in his 2005 state of the nation address. "As for the Russian people," Putin went on, "it became a genuine tragedy. Tens of millions of our fellow citizens and countrymen found themselves beyond the fringes... Read More
Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, is the most demonized person in the western world since Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler. Hillary Clinton says Putin is “the new Hitler.” US President Biden says Putin is too evil to be permitted to stay in office. Despite these hard characterizations of the Russian leader, the Kremlin has... Read More
Why is Germany sending weapons to Ukraine? Don't they realize these weapons will be used to kill Russian soldiers? Don't they realize these weapons will be given to Nazi combatants who tattoo swastikas on their arms and march in torchlight parades? Don't the German people care about that? In World War 2, the German Wehrmacht... Read More
Free Speech versus Catastrophe
Thanks to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, we indeed seem to be rushing headlong into a major war—possibly a World War Three, possibly the world’s first (and perhaps last) nuclear war. Ukraine leadership and their Western backers seem hell-bent on fighting to the last man, and Vladimir Putin, as an old-school Cold Warrior, seems equally... Read More
Seeing Russia invade Ukraine, historically neutral Finland has undergone a late conversion and decided to join NATO immediately. Why? Because NATO membership means the world's strongest power, the United States, under Article 5 of NATO, would go to war against Russia, should it cross Finland's border. Nervous about Russian President Vladimir Putin's intentions, Finland wants... Read More
