Saker community members and readers – I need your help!

Dear friends, I was hoping to be able to put off this post, in fact I did begin and then sent it to trash it several times.  But now things are getting critical.  I need your help or something will have to change, and not for the better.  Let me explain: You must have noticed that even though the blog is full of features, everything loads really well and really

EU to offer 2-speed solution too late to stop French election

by Ramin Mazaheri Keep asking the fundamental question: Has the European Union brought the prosperity and security it promised? No. Then that will always be a perfectly valid reason for exiting. Because it hasn’t brought prosperity and security, can the European Union be reformed? I have said “no” for years, but it’s been a month of historic changes in Europe, with more to come. After years of rejecting such an

25 years in jail for selling 35 pills

Cynthia Powell was not an addict. She was not a dealer. She sold 35 of her diabetes pain pills to a confidential informant—for $300. Just enough to make ends meet that month. Next thing she knew, she was arrested, charged, and convicted. Her sentence? Watch to find out! Share if you agree that mandatory sentences go too far. Read her full profile here: http://famm.org/cynthia-powell/ But here is hope, these crazy

Harvard University honors The Saker blog (<<== shameless clickbaiting and fake news!)

Okay, so I am not being honest with this title.  But hey, since Harvard does list my blog as a ‘fake news’ source, I might as well indulge, at least once, into some absolutely shameless click baiting and “fake newsing” :-) Seriously, my friend Steve Lendman wrote an interesting post on his blog about Harvard University’s “guide to fake news”.  Check it out, he does a great job explaining it

The Empire should be placed on suicide watch

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/the-empire-should-be-placed-on-suicide-watch/ In all the political drama taking place in the USA as a result of the attempted color revolution against Trump, the bigger picture sometimes gets forgotten. And yet, this bigger picture is quite amazing, because if we look at it we will see irrefutable signs that the Empire in engaged in some bizarre slow motion of seppuku and the only mystery

Here’s why Ukraine is suing Russia in the International Court of Justice

by Alexander Mercouris for The Duran Ukraine’s case in the ICJ looks like a device to avoid paying the likely High Court Judgment for payment of the $3 billion debt Ukraine owes Russia The case Ukraine is bringing in the International Court of Justice is attracting scant international attention and has been almost entirely ignored by Western governments and by the Western media.  Having said this it is an interesting

The Ukronazis are turning on each other

This is really sweet: the Ukronazi crazies are now publicly turning on each other.  Today, I want to share with you a video (pretty long, 28min, no need to watch it all) with no subtitles.  I will just summarize what you will see.  A member of the Ukie Parliament, Tetiana Chornovol, decided to visit the volunteers currently blockading Novorussia to try to explain to them that if the Nazi-occupied Ukraine

‘White Trash’ – both a book and Trump revolution?

by Ramin Mazaheri White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America (2016) by Nancy Isenberg is a book which is credited with the groundbreaking idea of studying the history of poor Whites in America. It’s a necessary book because it gives us a lot of badly-needed historical information to analyze the major divide in the United States today: between pro- and anti-Trump factions. Hillary Clinton denounced Trump supporters as

‘White Trash’ – A book review of our family

by Ramin Mazaheri Americans, whether you like it or not, and whether you admit it or not, this book review is about our family. White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America (2016) by Nancy Isenberg is a book so necessary that it compelled reviews in “The New York Times” and “The Wall Street Journal” because it finally gives White Trash the place in American history that they have

Moscow accused Trump of lack of professionalism

by Mikhail Moshkin translated by Eugenia Source: http://www.vz.ru/world/2017/2/24/859374.html Donald Trump, having believed the rumors about the Russian deployment of cruise missiles in violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Force Treaty (INF Treaty), promised to touch upon revision of the previous agreements in the upcoming talks with Putin.
