With Trump out of office, now would be a good time to critically re-examine one of the most remarkable, and ultimately problematic, features of his time as President — the extravagant support he enjoyed from evangelical Christians and the resurgence of Christian Zionism. Back in November, I linked Trump’s popularity among Red State Christians to... Read More

In the final week of September, an Azerbaijani offensive renewed hostilities in the perennial armed conflict and territorial dispute in the South Caucasus between Armenia and its neighbor over the Nagorno-Karabakh (“Mountainous Karabakh”) region. By October, the clashes had escalated past the state border between Azerbaijan and the internationally-unrecognized Republic of Artsakh which suffered heavy... Read More
First, I want to begin this analysis by posting the full translation of an article posted yesterday by the Russian webzine Vzgliad. I materially don’t have the time to make my own translation, so what I will post is just a minimally retouched machine translation, I apologize for this. original Russian text: [center/] Five main...

A lot has happened very rapidly in the past two days and I will begin this analysis by a few bullet points summarizing what just happened (not in any particular order, including chronological): The war which has just ended was a real bloodbath and it has seen more casualties (counting both sides) than what the...

"America is willing to sacrifice its young soldiers and national interests and even its economy for Israel," Gilad Atzmon, who was born in a Jewish family in Israel and grew up in Jerusalem al-Quds, tells the Tehran Times. * Atzmon, who now lives in Britain, also says, "Israeli pressure groups seem to believe that they...

Let's assume that Black Lives Matter is not a "social justice" movement, but a corporate-sponsored public relations vehicle that's being used to advance the agenda of elites? Is that too much of a stretch? And let's say that the massive protests that erupted across the country were not random or spontaneous events as some people... Read More
President Donald Trump arriving in Ashville, N.C., Aug. 24, 2020. (White House, Shealah Craighead)
A small number of very rich men are quite sure they know what is best for the future of the world and have enough wealth and influence to believe they can make it happen. They can be called oligarchs, but the term is inadequate. They are a special category, the shapers of the Global Governance... Read More

New think tank needs an Israel reality check
The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft think tank launched last November. It has recently issued a roughly 15,000 word manifesto entitled “Ending America’s Misguided Policy of Middle East Domination.” For those who would find ten thousand words plus intimidating, the paper includes a more digestible 1,221 word executive summary which fairly accurately summarizes the document’s...

What is the best way to debunk a conspiracy theory? Call it a conspiracy theory, a label which in and of itself implies disbelief. The only problem with that is there have been many actual conspiracies both historically and currently and many of them are not in the least theoretical in nature. Conspiracies of several...

The May 25th killing of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota shocked the world and set off mass protests against racism and police brutality in dozens of cities from the mid-western United States to the European Union, all in the midst of a global...

For years Eco-Enthusiasts, both activists and scientists, have been telling us that the ‘party’ will come to an end. The planet we are stuck on can’t take it for much longer, it is getting too crowded and unbearably warm. Most people didn’t take any real notice of the situation and for a reason. This planet,...

George Soros is a billionaire Hungarian-born investor who is extremely controversial due to his promotion of what he chooses to define as democracy and free-trade movements, primarily conducted through the Open Society Foundations, which he founded and has funded with $32 billion, according to one estimate. He contributed to the campaigns of Barack Obama and... Read More

There is a strong anti-China current being promoted in right-wing circles and some neo-liberal ones in light of the coronavirus epidemic. These forces are seeking to redirect real criticisms of globalization - deindustrialization, stolen intellectual property, and trade deficits - and utilize them for support for regime change operations and possibly even war against China...

A new front group preaches restraint while embracing interventionism
Numerous so-called “front groups” operate in the United States. A front group is very simply an organization that pretends to have a certain program while at the same time using that identity as cover to promote a hidden agenda that is something quite different, often opposed to what is being said publicly. The Global Climate... Read More

While the Jewish Lobby and its squads of thought-police are geared up to frame and destroy anyone who dares to mention Soros’ ethnicity, Avraham Burg, prominent Israeli politician, former chairman of the Jewish Agency and interim Israeli president lauds George Soros as the quintessential ‘Jew-niversalist’ icon. In his recent Haaretz Op-ed titled “Get Ready for... Read More

Last month, Michael White was acquitted of voluntary manslaughter in the stabbing of Sean Schellenger. White, who is black, approached and began challenging the 37-year-old white man while he was engaged in a traffic dispute with an unrelated driver in Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square. Witnesses said White and Schellenger both squared up for a fist fight,... Read More

Or is it just that liberal Jews hate Trump?
One of the more curious bits of invective hurled at presidential candidate Donald Trump was the claim that he is an anti-Semite. The allegation is particularly odd as Trump worked comfortably for decades in the heavily Jewish New York real estate world, his daughter Ivanka, whom he is very close to, has converted to Judaism...

If you look at the track record of the interventionists you might think they would pause before taking on more projects. Each of their past projects has ended in disaster yet still they press on. Last week the website Zero Hedge posted a report about hacked emails between billionaire George Soros and Ukrainian President Poroshenko.... Read More
Is it time we shorted George Soros? Judging by his latest book, The Tragedy of the European Union: Disintegration or Revival?, he certainly seems to have passed his sell-by date. While the book makes some good points about Germany’s role in imposing gratuitously severe austerity on Europe, for Soros watchers all this is hardly new.... Read More
The eurozone may be in turmoil but the investing maestro says the currency will survive. As someone who exchanged some Japanese yen for the euro recently, I have been watching the latter’s gyrations with more than usual interest. My purpose was not to speculate but to finance a real estate transaction, but it is still... Read More
