Have Washington and its British vassal set a stage for testing whether Russia has the stomach for war? How else do we interpret the announcement by General Sergey Rudskoy, chief of the Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff, that “we have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of...

Notice that the governments of the US, UK, France, and Germany did not require any evidence to decide that the Russian government used military-grade nerve gas to attack two people on an English park bench and a UK policeman. It makes no sense. There is no Russian motive. The motive lies in the West.... Read More
Russians are having a difficult time comprehending their Western enemy or even understanding that Russia has an enemy that seeks the destruction of Russia. Has it occured to Russia that it is very strange that the UK, a country of no military significance, a country that could be completely destroyed forever in a few minutes... Read More
Stephen Lendman agrees that the murderous criminals in Washington are driving humanity to extinction. Because of the control over explanations that people in the Western world receive, most are unaware of the mounting danger. In the past few days extreme and serious threats have been issued against Russia and Syria by Washington and London.... Read More
As I wrote earlier today (, “the entire Western world is insane.” More evidence has been jumping out at me all day. For example: President Trump has nominated a person, Gina Haspel, to be CIA Director who is deeply implicated in CIA torture and destruction of the evidence. The Republicans want to confirm her as...

Senator Chuck Schumer (D, NY) says Tillerson’s firing indicates that the Trump administration is disintegrating. I understand why Senator Schumer sees it that way, expecially following all the other dismissals and resignations. I see it differently. The firing of Secretary of State Tillerson, the movement of CIA Director Pompeo to Secretary of State, and the... Read More
“In a nuclear war the “collateral damage” would be the life of all humanity.” — Fidel Castro
The Russians, in their anxiety to show the West how friendly they are, left Washington with a toe hold in Syria, which Washington is using to reopen the war. The Russians’ failure to finish the job has left Washington’s foreign mercenaries, misrepresented in the American presstitute media as “freedom fighters,” in a Syrian enclave. To... Read More
Identity Politics is turning white people into a delegitimized group that it is permissible to hate and to discriminate against. White Americans are being turned into undesirables and are being delegitimized just as Jews were delegitimatized in Nazi Germany. Curiously enough, as I understand it, the Identity Politics being used to delegitimize white people has... Read More
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the US economy added 313,000 jobs in the 28 days of February, causing a big jump in the Dow Jones average. Where does BLS find these jobs? The BLS finds 61,000 in construction, which, if correct, suggests in view of falling new and existing home sales, that those... Read More
Americans live a never-never-land existance. The politicians and presstitutes make sure of that. Consider something as simple as the unemployment rate. The US is said to have full employment with a January 2018 unemployment rate of 4.1 percent, down from 9.8 percent in January 2010. However, the low rate of unemployment is contradicted by the...

This year could turn out to be a defining year for the United States. It is clear that the US military/security complex and the Democratic Party aided by their media vassals intend to purge Donald Trump from the presidency. One of the open conspirators declared the other day that we have to get rid of... Read More
In the Western world day by day the domain of truth shrinks as does the ability to challenge official explanations. A number of alternative media Internet sites have lost their YouTube platform, and Twitter is censoring what can be posted and preventing access to accounts. Google makes truth-tellers harder to find. All the while official... Read More
As I figured would be the case, Putin’s message to the West that Russia cannot be intimidated and that the nations must work together to deal with world problems was far over the heads of the dumbshit “exceptional” Americans. CNN rushed out an idiot named Samantha Vinograd who served as a staffer on Obama’s National... Read More
Putin has given a remarkable address to the Federal Assembly, the Russian People, and the peoples of the world. In his speech Putin revealed the existence of new Russian nuclear weapons that make it undisputably clear that Russia has vast nuclear superiority over the United States and its pathic NATO vassal states. In view of... Read More
Scroll down this URL to the last video of the blond female student at Parkland, Alexa Miednik. She says she walked out of the building with the alleged shooter, Nikolas Cruz, while shots were still occuring in other parts of the building. This Parkland teacher, Stacy Lippel, describes the shooter as police in full... Read More
We continue to hear from a variety of uninformed or corrupt people that there is “clear evidence” that Russia interfered in the US presidential election. We hear it from the Atlantic Council, a mouthpiece for the military/security complex. We hear it from a nutcase in the British Labour Party. We hear it from... Read More
Readers have inquired about my silence about the Florida shooting on Valentine’s Day. The answer is that school shootings are not my expertise. Moreover, a country, such as the US, which no longer has an independent TV and print national media, is unable to find out and is dependent on the story told by authorities.... Read More
There are many signs of American collapse. One of the most scary is the fact that the American Civil Liberties Union no longer knows what are the civil liberties it purports to defend. Identity Politics has transformed civil rights into privileges for victim groups. Yesterday (February 22, 2018) I received a 50-state survey from the... Read More
As has been made perfectly clear, Mueller’s “indictment” of 13 Russians and 3 companies is just another hoax. See: and: All Mueller has found is a bait-click commercial marketing scheme that had nothing to do with election interference. Why is Mueller comfortable bringing a transparently false indictment? The answer is, as Glenn Greenwald... Read More
This is an extraordinary and highly truthful article by former CIA official Ray McGovern who was the responsible official for the daily briefing of the President of the United States. Be sure to read it: McGovern has proven over and over on many occasions that he is a person of integrity, honor, and intelligence. Ray... Read More
Despite reporting correctly Deputy AG Rosenstein’s statement that Mueller’s investigation found no evidence that Russian social media activity had an effect on the US election and no cooperation or collusion with the Trump campaign, CBS then falsely reports: “DOJ indicts Russians for meddling in election.” Does CBS have an explanation for its side-by-side self-contradiction on...

Gun bans are no more effective than banning drugs. What explains school shootings and other mass shootings—the ones that are real? The gun control lobby blames “gun violence.” Gun violence is a non-sensical term. It attributes action and intent to an inanimate physical object as if the gun decides to kill people and moves around... Read More
Now the Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein confirms what I told you in my previous post. Mueller found no evidence that Russia had any impact on the outcome of the 2016 election. So what was Russiagate all about? It was exactly, precisely what I told you it was about from the very begining. It was... Read More
Robert Mueller discredited himself and his orchestrated Russiagate investigation today (Friday, February 16, 2018) with his charges that 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies plotted to use social media to influence the 2016 election. Their intent, Mueller says, was to “sow discord in the US political system.” What pathetic results to come from a... Read More
From the standpoint of the #MeToo movement, the wrong country was banned from the Olympics. It should have been the US, not Russia. According to MeToo women, the US Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics covered up Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse of US athletes for years. In contrast, the Russian doping scandal appears to be an...

For many decades the Federal Reserve has rigged the bond market by its purchases. And for about a century, central banks have set interest rates (mainly to stabilize their currency’s exchange rate) with collateral effects on securities prices. It appears that in May 2010, August 2015, January/February 2016, and currently in February 2018 the Fed... Read More
Brothels now employ inanimate sex dolls in place of women: The replacement of women with inanimate objects also a big thing in Japan: There are now male sex dolls for women who have been taught to hate men: I keep waiting to hear of the first marriage of a human with... Read More
Defending the latest round of US/Israeli aggression against Syria, US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert struck a Hitlerian note when she blamed Syria and Iran for an act of overt Israeli aggression, saying “The United States . . . strongly supports Israel’s sovereign right to defend itself,” and when she lied that “Iran’s malign activities”...

A couple of decades or more ago when I was still in Washington, otherwise known as the snake pit, I was contacted by a well-financed group that offered me, a Business Week and Scripps Howard News Service columnist with access as a former editor also to the Wall Street Journal, substantial payments to promote agendas...

On February 6 PCR asked if the Plunge Protection Team had stepped in and prevented a stock market correction by purchasing equity index futures. enough, the daily exchange volume chart shows an increase in futures activity on February 2 with sharp increases on Feb. 5th and 6th. Those are the days when the stock market... Read More
When I look at news reports from whichever country, I see no awareness of the two most ominous developments in US history. One is the conspiracy between US security agencies, the US Department of Justice, the Democratic Party and the American print and TV media to overthrow the democratically elected president of the United States....

After the extraordinary sudden loss in equity values, today (2-6-18) brought gains back to the stock indices. What happened? Did the market sneeze, cough, or was something misread and today perceived in a different light? In my opinion this is what happened: The Plunge Protection Team, as they have done on previous equity market drops,... Read More
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby... Read More
All over the media, much is being made of Rep. Devin Nunes “admission” that he did not read the FISA applications made by the DOJ and FBI. The presstitutes say this proves that Nunes doesn’t know what he is talking about. Here, for example, is CNN and its collection of press prostitutes: Here is... Read More
The World Will Not Surive the American Neoconservatives’ Doctrine of US World Hegemony
The government of the United States is clearly in demonic hands. We are overflowing with proof. Take today (2-2-18) for example. A report from the House Intelligence Committee was released that is proof that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice (sic), and the Democratic National Committee are engaged in a conspiracy against... Read More
The House Intelligence Committee’s report on the FBI/DOJ deception of the FISA court has now been released. I have read the so-called “Nunes Memo.” As far as I can tell, the report from the House Intelligence Committee says exactly what the previously released Memorandum Opinion and Order from the FISA court itself says. I posted... Read More
The Russian government, media, and public don’t know what to make of the US Treasury’s “Kremlim list.” The Treasury list contains the names of the top echelon of Russian government and business leadership. The Russians understand that the list is unfriendly and furthers Washington’s policy of worsening the relationship between the two major nuclear powers,... Read More
The purpose of the Second Dossier is to prevent the first one from being delegitimized by the release of the summary report of the House Intelligence Committees’ investigation, which found that Russiagate is a conspiracy against President Trump and American democracy by the FBI, Obama Justice (sic) Department, Hillary-controlled Democratic National Committee, and the presstitute...

In an act of insane escalation of provocations against Russia, Washington has produced a list of 210 top Russian government officials and important business executives who are “gangsters,” “members of Putin’s gang,” “threats,” “people deserving to be sanctioned,” or however the Western presstitutes care to explain the list. The absurd list includes the Prime Minister... Read More
Peter Jenkins, a former British ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency, expresses concerns about the decisions of France, Germany, and the UK to appease President Trump on fixing “flaws” in the Iranian nuclear agreement. is worth a read to see that the European governments are still Washington’s toadies despite the “hate Trump” attitude...

Last year I was awarded Marquiss Who’s Who In America’s Lifetime Achievement Award. This did not prevent a hidden organization, PropOrNot, from attempting to brand me and my website along with 200 others “Putin stooges or agents” for our refusal to lie for the corrupt, anti-American, anti-constitutional, anti-democratic, warmonger police state interests that rule the... Read More
The Republicans’ delay in releasing the summary of the House Intelligence Committee’s Russiagate investigation is giving weight to the presstitutes’ claim that the report is not being released, because it is a hack attempt at a Trump coverup that is not believable. Only Republicans are stupid enough to put themselves in such a situation. Readers... Read More
The Stupid Party Remains Stupid
In the 1970s neoconservative Irving Kristol aptly described the Republicans as “the stupid party.” We are seeing this today in the hesitation of the House Intelligence Committee to release to the American public the results of its investigation of Russiagate. The committee has released a description of its findings to members of the House, and... Read More
One of the great tragedies of our time is the abandonment of the working class by the white liberal/progressive/left. No longer is the victim group the working class and the victimizers Wall Street, the big banks and the capitalists. Today the victimizer is the white working class, and the victim group is everyone else. Somehow... Read More
Former US Attorney Joe di Genova explains the Russiagate story. Scroll down and you will find his 30 minute video interview. It will give you the complete unadultrated story. It made me realize that I have been too harsh on the NSA. It was the NSA Director Adm. Rodgers who informed the FISA court of... Read More
The NSA, CIA, and FBI are criminal organizations that should be abolished and their leaderships imprisoned. Here is proof from the United States Foreign Intelligence Survelliance Court that security agencies have been operating outside the law: On page 4 the federal court that oversees the spy program states that the US government has not been... Read More
The main function of the National Security Administration is to collect the dirt on members of the house and senate, the staffs, principal contributors, and federal judges. The dirt is used to enforce silence about the crimes of the security agencies. The blackmail mechanism was put into gear the minute the news reported that the... Read More
It is exactly as I told you. Russiagate is a conspiracy between the FBI, the DOJ, and the Hillary campaign to overturn Donald Trump’s election. We have treason committed at the highest levels of the FBI and Department of Justice and the Democratic National Committee. If you believed one word of Russiagate, you now must... Read More
As my readers at home and around the world know, I supported giving Trump a chance as Trump, and only Trump, addressed the two most important issues of our time for both all of humanity and for Americans: (1) avoiding nuclear Armageddon by normalizing relations with Russia, and (2) restoring the American middle class, on...

When the US Supreme Court consisted of civil libertarians such as William Douglas, William Brennan, and Thurgood Marshall, Republicans argued that the Supreme Court was coddling criminals and inventing rights. To prevent legislation from the bench, it was necessary, Republicans said, to elect Republican presidents who would appoint a different court that would respect the... Read More
