by George Eliason for The Saker Blog At the beginning of October, I was contacted by the New York Times, @ScottShane for an interview about US President Donald Trump. The biggest pressing question he had revolved around how (not if) I’m guiding US foreign policy and advising President Donald Trump on Ukraine and the deep-state war in the US from Donbass. Try reading that over your first sip of coffee.

by Scott Humor I present you with my new book. It is a mystery novel with no geo-politics, so it’s “safe” to recommend to your friends and family. The timing is especially significant, as it is a month before Christmas when we know people get stuck with seasonal depression. Mysteries are considered to be one of the best remedies for the holiday blues. P. J. James, a well
The opinions of reviewers who read the book varies from ‘Wow, that’s an extremely energizing book!” to “Thank you very much for this. A brilliant satirical work. Hope it gets exposure.” It’s hard to find a great political satire book, it’s even harder to come across of a satirical work about a war. The Good Soldier Švejk by Jaroslav Hašek, comes to mind, and Catch–22 by Joseph Heller, and not
Dear friends, my new book Hell and Israel: Après Lavrov le déluge is now available at the saker.community store in PDF format and in eBOOK MOBI format.

by Scott Humor After my research Grid Dynamics connects wars in Ukraine and Syria with Soros’ Open Russia, Sobchak and snipers in Saratov was published, I received a reply from one of the company’s employees. We are withholding the name and occupation of the commentator. I can only say that it’s an employee, who has worked for the company for several years. ————————————————————————————————– I’m working at GD in Saratov and

Russian Orthodox Church gathers all faithful The Holy Synod just added to the ecclesiastical calendar more than a dozen saints who lived in Europe including saint Patriky, the Apostle of Ireland, better known as Saint Patrick. The Holy Synod considered in part the accounts of Russian Orthodox Christians worshipping in dioceses located in Western Europe. Church officials weighed this information, as well as the absence of particular saints’ names from
A few years ago, I was having coffee with my then-business partner. He happened to be in the middle of a process called “enrolling your child in a private school.” In my naiveté I thought that this process was a fairly straightforward one: you give them your application and a check, and they accept your kid. But apparently, there were more people with money that this particular school was willing to
When I started my master’s program in an American university, I also took work as a web developer, and programming was making me very hungry. My tuition paid for a meal plan and the use of a buffet-style dining hall, but as the only Russian there, I was the subject of extreme scrutiny by the student body of “food police,” resulting in my inability to take a second helping of
On February 9th, the Donetsk republic authorities announced that the regime in Kiev was behind the assassination of Mikhail Sergeyevich Tolstykh, nom de guerre Givi. They also claim that they know who were individuals, involved in this crime. Igor Mosiychuk, a Rada deputy representing the “Radical party,” an ultra-radical nationalist known for his alleged involvement in intimidation of the fellow members of the parliament, kidnapping and other criminal activities.
The German ambassador to Ukraine spoke to a Russia-based privately owned news source. He brought up the idea that in order to implement the Minsk Agreement “local elections in Donbas could take place with Russian troops on the ground.” Thanks to the Kulak for the link. In his interview, the German ambassador is talking about a “new map” which means changing the way the agreement is implemented. He says that
The liberal think tank Stratfor has stated what we already knew: “Kiev could have incited the violence to draw attention to the conflict and rally international support for continued sanctions on Moscow.“ And that’s where the Kiev regime finds no understanding among the European national businesses. On the supra-national level everything is business-as-usual: In January in Ukraine, senators McCain and Graham visited front line troops and spent the night with them
Providing correct and timely information and analysis is important to me as a journalist, but as a professor, I want to teach you a few simple logical skills, so you will be able to grasp the meaning of events through the thick fog of propaganda. I don’t ask you to believe me, because the skills of seeing through don’t require faith, but rather, understanding. Let’s talk about the temporary suspension of
This is what I call instant karma. Do you recall how Obama and the democrats consolidated executive power under the auspice of the president of the United States? How the liberal press loved it, and many republicans warned them against doing such things and the democrats ignored the warnings; they thought that their reign of terror will go on for at thousand years or at the least until WW III.
The Old Rome and the Third Rome came together and they are winning. Cat Motja The Battle for liberation of Germany. Part I. Recently while talking to my German pal, I said that Russians liked Germans more than any other Europeans. With the exception of Serbs, of course. He swallowed his beer and didn’t respond, probably because he didn’t believe me. Next, I saw some of Motja’s thoughts and
It’s official, Donald Trump, a nice guy, moves into the White House. His inauguration followed by very modest, small town America style parade. Many Russian families watched the inauguration of the US president during their supper. Everyone loved that, finally, a beautiful woman has become the first lady. Globalization becomes a dirty word. In brief, Obama’s policies helped the government of Russia to diversify its economy, to stop capital flight
This is my corner so I can rant on and on about what bothers me the most today. Take, for example, the recent revelation made by Russia’s Foreign Ministry that the US intelligence community was instrumental in the death of Evgeny Primakov, who was allegedly on dialyses for liver failure at the time. US intel may have contributed to Russian ex-Foreign Minister Primakov’s death – Zakharova Primakov has been hated by
“What is this?” “This is no fish, neither meat, but Uncle Taras’ zalupa.” An insulting Ukrainian saying. The first time I heard the word “chalupa” I was standing with my back to the wall of a school hallway, surrounded by a group of students. One of them called me “moscal’ and offered me to “try his chalupa” after that they all laughed in anticipation. I had just arrived
A French writer Frederic Beigbeder wrote about Russian women: “Women of all nationalities hate them, because beauty is unfair and one should fight against unfairness. Russian women are enemies. Angels have always had plenty of enemies – you can read the Bible to see it, because this book is a catalog of martyred angels.” The Under-18 Women’s World Championship Hockey European sports fans were booing during the Russian anthem which
