The Rhythm Of Time (poem by Bobby Sands)

(Sent to me tonight by my daughter.  The Saker) The Rhythm Of Time There’s an inner thing in every man, Do you know this thing my friend? It has withstood the blows of a million years, And will do so to the end. It was born when time did not exist, And it grew up out of life, It cut down evil’s strangling vines, Like a slashing searing knife. It

The Iran Dilemma – The Tyrant Has Spoken

by Peter Koenig The tyrant, of course, is Donald Trump. He launched tirade after tirade, and keeps launching them, insult after insult, lies after lies after miserable lies at the Government of Iran – about Iran not fulfilling the conditions of the Nuclear Deal. The typical mass indoctrination of the western world through the presstitute mainstream media. Goebbels might smile in his grave, how well the neolibs or neo-Nazis have

The Eurozone: still as primed for collapse as ever

by Ramin Mazaheri To best gauge the stability of the Eurozone today, an appropriate way to start is to reassess how the Eurozone responded to their last crisis. In 2012 the European Sovereign Debt Crisis peaked, and European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi resorted to the same tactics as Mike Ditka, the legendary American football coach for the Chicago Bears. But both promised to do: “Whatever it takes”. Ditka made

Trump goes full shabbos-goy

I won’t even bother discussing the substance of what Trump had to say today because what he said deserves no such attention.  I will quickly mention that yesterday Trump pulled the US out of UNESCO on behalf of Israeli interests.  Today he basically announced a tepid, possibly hot, war on Iran.  I am tempted to say “so what else is new?”.  In fact, nothing, nothing at all. This topic, the

Roberta Sá and Ney Matogrosso interpret “Peito Vazio” ( & translated lyrics)

Two of the most beautiful voices in Brazil Lyrics and my own, very imperfect, and free translation: Nada consigo fazer Quando a saudade aperta Foge-me a inspiração Sinto a alma deserta Um vazio se faz em meu peito E de fato eu sinto Em meu peito um vazio Me faltando as tuas carícias As noites são longas E eu sinto mais frio Procuro afogar no álcool A tua lembrança Mas

Democracy, Tortured Meaning of the Wrong Word

by Jimmie Moglia Politicians, much like advertisers, are ever ready to surprise the unawareness of the thoughtless. They must use language, the quintessential political tool, with a tone of deep-felt conviction and an air of solemn sincerity. And no politician, in his electoral language and speeches, could omit a panegyric of democracy and a declaration of his total commitment to it. Some readers may have since long concluded that “democracy”

Is Communism really dead?

This article was written for the Unz Review The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 did mark the end of the longest experiment in Communism in recent history. Many saw this event as the proof that Communism (or Marxism-Leninism, I use these interchangeably here) was not a viable ideology. After all, if in Russia Communism was formally ended in 1991, the Chinese quietly shifted away from it too, replacing

The House of Saud bows to the House of Putin

Saudi Arabia pivots to Russia, the new sheriff in town by Pepe Escobar for the Asia Times What a difference a year – an eternity in geopolitics – makes. No one could see this coming; the ideological matrix of all strands of Salafi-jihadi terror – which Russia fights no holds barred, from ISIS/Daesh to the Caucasus Emirate – beating a path to the Kremlin and about to embrace Russia as

NY Times: 1949 – When China lost that ‘elusive’ quality needed for Anglobalization

by Ramin Mazaheri So there I was again, flying from San Francisco to New York on the “job creators’ redeye” when I came across another great New York Times article. Long-time readers know that I prefer to only read about Russian meddling, but articles about Chinese meddling take a respectable second place. The article reviews a history book describing the victory of communism in China in 1949, entitled “A Force

The hopelessly corrupt structure of the Eurozone & the Eurogroup

by Ramin Mazaheri Part of the problem of criticizing the “pan-European project” is that you have multiple bodies which overlap. And you also have some nations which are part of one, but not another. Or which pay into one body, but abstain from another. A clear analysis is needed of the most important part of the pan-European project: the Eurozone. The Eurozone is the most important because it controls the

Eagle in the storm

Yesterday I had a meeting with a member of the Saker community in Titusville, just south of where I live.  On the way back I drove through the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.  A heavy rain was falling and the animals of the Refuge were all “hunkering down”, including a superb Bald Eagle.  I took the photo below because that eagle reminded me of how the USA, which considers the

Russian views on the separatist referendums in Spain and Iraq

This article was written for the Unz Review The recent referendums in Catalonia and Kurdistan, while by no means crucial developments for Russia, have resulted in a lively debate in the Russian media and the Russian public opinion. The Kremlin itself has refrained from making any strong statements, possibly indicating that there might be several schools of thought on these issues in key ministries. Let’s look at these two situation

How my book unmasking Bill Browder was censored by Amazon by Alex Krainer

[Note by the Saker: for my review of Alex Krainer’s book please click here]   “I always say the truth is best even when we find it unpleasant. Any rat in a sewer can lie. It’s how rats are. It’s what makes them rats. But a human doesn’t run and hide in dark places, because he’s something more. Lying is the most personal act of cowardice there is.” ― Nancy
