Saker Analyses and Interviews

We have lost a real giant (Stephen F. Cohen has died)!

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God (Holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew 5:9) Dear friends, It is with immense sadness that I have to report that Stephen F. Cohen passed away yesterday in his home in Manhattan at the age of 81. There are a few media outlets who have already reported this.  Most of them discuss Stephen F. Cohen’s political ideas and

Reconsidering the Presidential Election

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] In early July I wrote a piece entitled “Does the next Presidential election even matter?” in which I made the case that voting in the next election to choose who will be the next puppet in the White House will be tantamount to voting for a new captain while the Titanic is sinking. I gave three specific reasons why I thought that

Solari Report quarterly interview with The Saker

Dear friends, Here is the latest installment of my quarterly conversations with Catherine Austin Fitts. This one was recorded on August 11th. You can listen to the interview on the original Solari Report page: The Emerging Multipolar World – Spotlight on Russia with the Saker Listen or download the interview here: https://audio.solari.com/sr20200820/sr20200820_InterviewHQ.mp3

Russians are the dumbest idiots on the planet!

Russians are dumb.  Hopelessly stupid.  They are amateurs of the worst kind.  Ignoramuses on steroids.  Why? Well, for one, their so-called super-dooper biowarfare agent “Novichok” seems unable to kill anybody.  The Russians must have realized that.  This is why, when they tried to kill Skripal (after freeing him from jail) they put that Novichok thing all over the place:  on the bench near Salisbury, on Skripal’s door handle, even in

Will Hillary and the Dems get the civil war they are trying to provoke?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] If you have not already seen this, check out this video of Hillary Clinton stating that, quote, “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances“: “Any” means “any”.  That would include the (admittedly hypothetical) case of Trump clearly winning in by landslide.  Again, “any” means “any”. The direct implications of that is that the Dems should re-take the White House by any

President Putin says that Russia will help Belarus (UPDATED!)

President Putin just gave an important interview to the Russian journalist Sergei Brilev in which he indicated that Russia and Belarus are allies in the CSTO Russia and Belarus are also Union states Russia has obligations towards Belarus Lukashenko has invoked these obligations Putin has agreed to create a “security reserve force” which is ready to intervene in Belarus in case of danger for the Belarusian state and sovereignty Putin

Might Belarus become the next Syria?

Okay, I admit it, the title is rather hyperbolic :-)  But here is what I am trying to say: there are signs that Russia is intervening in the Belarusian crisis (finally!) First and foremost, we can see a truly radical change in Lukashenko’s policies: if his initial instinct was to unleash a brutal repression of both the violent rioters and the peaceful demonstrators, now he has made a 180 and

Will Belarus become the next Banderastan?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] The situation in Belarus is evolving very rapidly, and not for the better, to say the least.  A lot has been going on, but here is a summary of what are the most crucial developments in my opinion: Last Sunday was a major success for the Belarusian opposition: huge crowds took to the streets of several Belarusian cities and, in most cases,

European leaders bring flowers to honor a Belarusian terrorist (+important development!)

Check out this video of diplomats of the EU (and a few others) laying flowers on the location where a Belarusian recently died: This action is truly breathtaking in its hypocrisy and total delusion. Why? Well, for one thing, these guys don’t realize that their reputation has been roadkill ever since they “guaranteed” the deal between Ianukovich and the Urkonazis, a deal which, as we all know was broken the

A quick update on Belarus

A quick update on the events in Belarus: To make a long story short, two major developments have happened: My guess is that by now Lukashenko has now figured (again) that the West wants him dead AND he has figured out that he has been conned by the Ukie SBU and, most likely, elements inside his own KGB. The Belarusian security forces (riot police and KGB) have ruthlessly cracked down

Putin and Russia are facing a very serious crisis in Belarus

[this analysis was written for the Unz review] Some of my longtime readers might have noticed that I rarely (if ever!) wrote about Belarus or President Lukashenko.  As always with the blog, there always is a reason for why I do mention something and no less a reason why I do not mention something.  In the case of Belarus or Lukashenko, my reason for not writing about them was the

There is a dark and dangerous forest behind these burning trees…

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] Roughly half-way through the year 2020 it is becoming pretty obvious that there are a number of major developments which almost got our total attention, and for good reason, as these are tectonic shifts which truly qualify as “catastrophe” (under the definition “a violent and sudden change in a feature of the earth“).  These are: The initiation of the global collapse of

Does the next Presidential election even matter?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] Just by asking the question of whether the next Presidential election matters, I am obviously suggesting that it might not.  To explain my reasons for this opinion, I need to reset the upcoming election in the context of the previous one.  So let’s begin here. The 2016 election of Donald Trump The first thing which, I believe, ought to be self-evident to

US Ambassador posts a message to the Russian people

Something rather hilarious just happened: the US Embassy in Moscow decided to hang up a big “LGBT+” flag next to the Stars and Stripes, see for yourself: Pretty soon the Russians, being Russian, made a joke out of it saying that the “LGBT Embassy” in Moscow decided to fly the Stars and Stripes :-) But that was not enough.  The clueless US Ambassador to Russia, John Sullivan, decided that he

What kind of “popular revolution” is this?!

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the USA are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc.  As for the violence, looting and riots – they are either excused as a result of some

The Empire takes a knee. Let it. But we don’t have to!

[This article was written for the Unz Review] It is quite interesting to observe how many commentators are completely misreading the current race riots or compare them with previous race riots in the history of the USA.  I suppose that by telling themselves that these latest riots are “just like” or “not nearly as bad” as past US race riots they try to reassure themselves by maintaining the illusion that

Did Trump just cancel a potential double-war?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] At this time of writing, it is too early to declare the danger over, but at least three out of five Iranian tankers have made it safely to Venezuela (confirmation from TeleSur and PressTV).  Furthermore, while we should never say “never”, it appears exceedingly unlikely that the US would let three tankers pass only to then try to impede the arrival of
