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

From “Non-agreement capable” to “have you gone crazy”

I was watching a major Russian talkshow, 60 minutes. They began by reporting that Tillerson had called Trump a “moron”. Then they translated an excerpt from this article in the Washington Post: Rex is a big dog. Rex is the top dog. Rex has a good job. Rex can fly! Rex has a jet. Fly, Rex, fly. Rex flies to other lands. Rex sits. Rex shakes. Rex speaks. When Rex

APPEAL: The History of the Orthodox People (HOP) Project needs your help!

The History of Orthodox People website has been active and growing for the last several months. Its mission is to enlighten not just the Western, primarily English-speaking world, but men and women of goodwill of all backgrounds and everywhere with the theological thought and spiritual heritage of Christian Orthodoxy. West-centric surveys of history and religion all too frequently neglect to mention Orthodoxy, the Christian Church whose teaching and practice go

Hassan Nasrallah calls on Jews to flee Israel: Zionism is our common enemy

Israel does not cease to issue direct threats against Lebanon, (promising) to destroy it all in a next war. There is always someone there who stands up and says, “In the next war, we will not let but ruins behind us, and we will return Lebanon 100 or 200 years ago.” Before the [Israeli military manoeuvres] Northern Front [in

King Philip VI addresses the Spanish nation

Semi-Official translation of the newspaper El Pais: ——- Good evening, We find ourselves at a critical juncture for our existence as a democracy. In these circumstances, I wish to address all Spaniards. We have all witnessed the facts that have taken place in Catalonia, with the illegal declaration of independence as the final goal of the Catalan Government (Generalitat). For a long time, some Catalan authorities have repeatedly, consciously and

Catalonia – two opposed views

Note by the Saker: today I am posting to completely different views on the events in Catalonia.  I do that because I hope that our community has the maturity needed to be exposed to two oppsed views without automatically having to declare one The One And Only Correct Opinion and defame the other with insults, personal attacks and logical fallacies.  I personally am not taking sides in this conflict for
