By the time the 43rd G-7 summit convenes from May 26-27 next year in Taormina, Sicily, German chancellor Angela Merkel will be joined by at least one female colleague, British Prime Minister Theresa May, described as «Margaret Thatcher on steroids», and quite possibly a third, the war hawk Hillary Clinton representing the United States. Sicily may […]

The globalist elites are clearly worried. The Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom was believed by the elites and their media to be heading for the UK remaining in the European Union. The political prognosticators and television chattering class were dead wrong. The UK is exiting the globalists’ top experiment for global governance, the increasingly-federalist European Union, and other members are poised to follow with their own exit referenda and withdrawal from a postwar monstrosity crafted in the 1940s and 1950s by industrialists, bankers, and outright fascists. The globalists have reacted to Brexit by staging summit meetings intended to demonstrate that the goal of globalization continues unabated.

Uncle Sam’s Support for Terrorism Laid Bare The McClatchy news service scoop that Labib al-Nahhas, the Syrian foreign affairs director of al-Qaeda’s ally Ahrar ash-Sham, visited Washington, DC in December 2015 should have created a huge political stir in a presidential election year. However, the fact that the Obama administration has been consorting with terrorist allies of […]

Although global hedge fund mogul George Soros and his non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have attempted to stir up ethnic nationalism inside the Russian Federation since the end of the Cold War, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) began such troublemaking as early as 1953. One of Soros’s targeted countries – one he selected in order to maximize […]

The US Central Intelligence Agency, rather than attempt to deter massive leaks of sensitive documents, including classified US government materials, has figured out it is much more advantageous to «cherry pick» certain information and then release it as «major news» to a corporate media eager and willing to run with what they are handed. Such […]

The latest themed revolution concocted by the Central Intelligence Agency’s «soft power» agents in the Brazilian federal and state legislatures, corporate media, and courts and prosecutors’ offices – all spurred on with the financial help of George Soros’s nongovernmental organizations – is the «Yellow Duck Revolution». Large inflatable yellow ducks – said to represent the […]

The United States, which was founded upon winning a revolutionary war for independence against a decrepit and insane King George III of England, has become the world’s chief promoter of restoring monarchies in nations it has invaded. The latest attempt of monarchy restoration has come in the failed nation of Libya, which saw its legitimate […]

President Barack Obama’s recently announced trip to Cuba, the first for an American president since that of Calvin Coolidge in 1928, does not represent a new chapter in US-Latin American relations. Instead, Obama’s Latin American trek is meant to put his seal of approval on more than a decade of gross US interference in Latin […]

The recent declassification of over 3800 documents by the Central Intelligence Agency provides detailed proof that since 1953 the CIA operated two major programs intent on not only destabilizing Ukraine but Nazifying it with followers of the World War II Ukrainian Nazi leader Stepan Bandera. The CIA programs spanned some four decades. Starting as a […]

Soros and His CIA Friends Targeted USSR/Russia in 1987 Declassified Central Intelligence Agency documents clearly describe how international hedge fund mogul George Soros targeted the Soviet government of Mikhail Gorbachev as early as 1987. Soros, who was already quite wealthy, worked closely with a CIA-linked non-governmental organization (NGO), the Institute for East-West Security Studies (IEWSS), […]

Almost immediately after the Friday the 13th Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist attacks in Paris that left 129 dead and 352 wounded – 100 severely – the chief enablers of the massive influx of Middle Eastern and North African migrants into Europe, which included jihadist «sleeper agents», proclaimed that casting blame […]

People’s Republic of China president Xi Jinping stunned the world, and especially the increasingly bellicose United States and Japan, by holding an unprecedented meeting with Ma Ying-jeou, the president of Taiwan, which continues to call itself the “Republic of China.” It was the first meeting between the presidents of the rival Chinese governments since mainland […]

America’s Disastrous Proxy Wars: Syria is the Latest Ever since the decisive military victory by the Allies over the Axis powers in World War II, the United States has fought an alternating series of all-out military campaigns and proxy wars. The Korean War resulted in a stalemate with North Korea, therefore the United States decided to engage in a series of low-level proxy wars in Cuba, the former Belgian Congo, Tibet, Laos, and Indonesia using client states and mercenary armies. In the mid-1960s, not content with the low-level proxy war it was fighting in South Vietnam that relied on U.S. military «advisers» and local forces, the United States committed over a half million troops to «fight communism» in Southeast Asia.

In his speech before the United Nations General Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered a proposal to create a coalition of nations to battle the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Putin’s coalition would be modeled after the anti-Hitler coalition created by the Allies during World War II. But rather than magnanimously accept […]

Shortly, the «gruesome twosome» of U.S.-Russian relations, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and NATO Supreme Commander General Philip Breedlove, will be joined by a third neo-Cold Warrior, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, the prospective Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to become the «terrible troika» of American officials […]

The NED’s Euro-counterpart: EED The U.S. National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency-financed Cold War contrivance created to advance right-wing governments and attack progressive nations around the world, has spawned a European offspring, the similarly-named European Endowment for Democracy (EED). The NED was largely the idea of conservative Miami Democratic Representative Dante […]

In yet another worrying sign that the U.S. National Security Agency has completely gone off the rails, a June 2010 PowerPoint slide, titled «Medical Pattern of Life: Targeting High Value Individual № 1», subtitled «SIGINT [signals intelligence] Enabling HUMINT [human intelligence] / Targeting», describes how NSA is using medical intelligence (MEDINT) to target medical patients. […]

Five major banks agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges brought by the U.S. Department of Justice for manipulating the exchange rates of U.S. dollars and euros. The banks were Citicorp, J.P. Morgan Chase, Barclays, Bank of America, and the Royal Bank of Scotland. A sixth bank, UBS Group, agreed to plead guilty to manipulating […]

The diabolical plan to destabilize Macedonia by Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, the U.S. ambassador to Macedonia Jess Baily, and Macedonian «social democratic» opposition leaders Zoran Zaev and Branko Crvenkovski – who could be called the «Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Petro Poroshenko of Macedonia» – has entered a critical phase with members of the supposedly […]

Those who argue that the so-called «Obama Doctrine» on foreign policy has been amorphous and conflicting, at best, see the prospects of a Hillary Clinton administration as even more damaging to U.S. foreign policy. Now that the former Secretary of State has formally announced her candidacy for the U.S. presidency, foreign policy experts are dissecting […]
