Why no Petroeuro? or France’s historic effort for an anti-austerity Eurozone

by Ramin Mazaheri The bottom line is: For the EU to work – for it to be of benefit to the average person – it has to follow France’s historical plan. That has always been the case, and it has also never been the case: the flaw in the plan remains selfish West Germany (now just Germany). This seems like common knowledge in the Eurozone, and certainly in smaller Eurozone

Statement by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly, New York, September 21, 2017

http://www.mid.ru/en/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/2870898   Distinguished Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, Last December, the UN General Assembly adopted the resolution on “Promotion of a democratic and equitable international order”, which clearly stipulated the inadmissibility of interference into internal affairs of sovereign States, non-recognition of coups d’état as a method of change of power and the need to exclude from the international communication the attempts of unlawful pressure of certain States on others, including exterritorial application

The UN and the Monster in the Room

By Peter Koenig There are no words, other than Monster, not even human monster, that can describe Trump’s appearance before the UN General Assembly last Tuesday, 19 September. It’s of no use to go through details of the insults he yelled at the word – many others have explained and analyzed that already – and done it well – remains to say that what Trump demonstrated with threats of total

Russian SOF incinerated the US SOF in Idlib

by Scott Humor   Still only few details are available about the September 20th  morning attack of combined Al-Nusra, which is Israel, and  the US Special Forces to capture a platoon of the Russian military police monitoring the situation in the de-escalation zone. Just a days before, there were a couple of major announcements. On September 13th, when the Russian Military Police first entered the capital of Idlib, there was

Russian special forces repel a US-planned attack in Syria, denounce the USA and issue a stark warning

Something rather unprecedented just happened in Syria: US backed “good terrorist” forces attempted a surprise attack against Syrian government forces stationed to the north and northeast of the city of Hama.  What makes this attack unique is that it took place inside a so-called “de-escalation zone” and that it appears that one of the key goals of the attack was to encircle in a pincer-movement and subsequently capture a platoon

Unmasked: Trump Doctrine vows carnage for new axis of evil

North Korea, Iran, Venezuela are targets in “compassionate” America’s war on the “wicked few.” It’s almost as though Washington felt its hegemony threatened by Pepe Escobar for the Asia Times This was no “deeply philosophical address”. And hardly a show of  “principled realism” – as spun by the White House. President Trump at the UN was “American carnage,” to borrow a phrase previously deployed by his nativist speechwriter Stephen Miller. One

Interview with Peter Koenig: BRICS – Potential and Future in an Emerging New World Economy

Based on an interview with Tashreeq Truebody, Radio 786, South Africa Questions Global economy and Brics Peter Koenig Let’s put the BRICS in perspective: The BRICS are of course Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Together they make up for almost 50% of the world population and close to one third of the world’s economic output, or GDP. This alone would make them fully independent from the western economy, from

Listening to The Donald at the UN

This article was written for the Unz Review Late this morning, outraged emails started pouring in.  My correspondents reported “getting sick” and having their “heart ache”.  The cause of all that?  They had just watched Trump’s speech at the UN.  I sighed and decided to watch the full speech for myself.  Yeah, it was painful. You can read the full (rush,not official) text here or watch the video here.  Most

Comments section reform – request for comments

Dear friends, As promised, I am now sharing with you the reasons which prompted my decision to initiated a reform the comments section and the solutions I am thinking of.  Most importantly, I ask for your input as this should be a community-wide discussion. But first, sorry, I need to vent.  There are a few things which I have mentioned in the past, but I feel that I need to

After Charlottesville

by Jimmie Moglia In a previous related article, (http://thesaker.is/the-two-americas-at-charlottesville/) I said there were still some unclear issues about the events at Charlottesville, especially regarding the death of the 32-year old Heather Heyer. What I further found and here report is telling, especially considering that on September 13, 2017, the US Congress sent a “resolution” to Trump, who signed it, “SJ Resolution 49,” which says, “Condemning the violence and domestic terrorist

The war on trolls, imbeciles and other pests is on! :-)

Wow, Eric Zuesses’ article really elicited a fury the like of which I have never seen, at least so far.  Right now there are seventy-fire (75!) intercepted comments sitting in my “trash bin” to review and either clear or terminate. And, just to add even more misery to an overworked Saker (and exhausted moderators!), I am about to post another article tomorrow which will, no doubt, infuriate the “other side”

The Lucy Stein Gang Rides Into Moscow

by Israel Shamir for the Unz Review Can the Putin Fans League win municipal elections in New York City? Not bloody likely, you’ll murmur, and probably justifiably so. However, in the municipal elections last week, pro-American forces captured one third of the seats in Moscow. A great shock, slightly mitigated by the media silence that accompanied both the election and its results. As a rule, I do not dwell much

Is it really true that America’s richest 1% are ‘overwhelmingly Jewish’? (UPDATED: Saker post-scriptum)

by Eric Zuesse On September 8th, an article I wrote for Strategic Culture Foundation, “What America’s Aristocracy Want,” was republished at the Donbass (far-eastern formerly Ukrainian) website, “South Front”. The article blamed a lot on America’s billionaires and centi-millionaires, “the American aristocracy” (as I referred to it), who own controlling blocs of stock in America’s largest corporations, and whose political donations control the U.S. federal Government. It defined the powerful

Europe’s unsolved debt crisis will legitimize bitcoins in October

by Ramin Mazaheri There are seemingly rather few commentators who understand the “real economy” (encompassed by national growth rates and employment rates), the “fake economy” (the 1%-dominated FIRE sector: finance, insurance and real estate) and crypto currency. I have seen top commentators make the most fundamental errors regarding crypto since it began a spectacular boom in April. And then there is a fourth axe: socialism. Even fewer Western commentators understand
