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

Magomed Tolboev warned Eric Schultz against copying Russian pilots

by Scott Humor As a cautionary illustration of the famous saying that “Что Русскому здорово, то Немцу смерть” or What’s healthy for a Russian would kill a German. Or an American, in this case. On September 8th, a pilot was killed in a plane crash at the Groom Lake, the USAF’s secret test base deep in the NTTR also referred as the Nevada Test and Training Range by the Air

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

Letter to my American friends

Introduction by the Saker: During my recent hurricane-induced evacuation from Florida, I had the pleasure to see some good friends of mine (White Russian emigrés and American Jews who now consider themselves American and who fully buy into the official propaganda about the USA) who sincerely think of themselves as liberals, progressives and anti-imperialists. These are kind, decent and sincere people, but during our meeting they made a number of

Am I still happy about my Brexit vote?

by Jack J. First of all, what could happen that would make me regret my vote?  If the Tories recover from Brexit and go on to dominate British politics for the coming decade, somehow managing to win the next election and thwart Scottish Independence, then I would have to turn over my Brexit vote to Captain Hindsight. I predict they won’t and I predicted they wouldn’t if Brexit happened.  I

Kadyrov in Chechnya vs. Soros in Myanmar

by Scott Humor Everyone else got it wrong, and that’s why you should only read thesaker.is and our partners. Let’s start with a hypothetical scenario. A supra-national intergovernmental criminal organization called the Deep State runs a militarized intelligence agency called the CIA. They make money the way street thugs do. Only instead of ambushing individuals, they attack, ambush, rape, pillage and loot entire countries.  Their ambush operations against any doomed

While we watched the fake American civil war

On September 1st, the scary Antifa groups and the Black Blocs that burned American flags, toppled monuments, screamed and beat other crisis actors with long sticks, all had vanished without a trace. Went back to school, most likely. They did good. They gave the left a bad name and a black eye. I spoke to an old pal of mine, who is the head of some local republican organization, and
