Trump – From Coward to Hero – MOAB, Syria, North Korea and Yemen are the Answer

by Peter Koenig Trump, within a span of a week, has made a U-turn; from a coward to hero. So the MSM; his aggressive violence, his murderous killing spree in Syria, Yemen and threatening North Korea with a nuclear ‘take-out’ – turns Trump from a pussie to a macho. Overnight, so to speak, Trump has become the darling of the presstitute Zionist-MSM. That tells you who is controlling the ‘brainstream’

Vladimir Safronkov How to become a national hero

By Scott Humor As a story goes, back in the nineteenth-century, a Paris opera house decided to stage a play with insults towards Russia and its monarch, Alexander I. He sent his diplomat to talk to the theater administration and asked them not to stage this sort of Russophobic production; they refused, saying that the French were enjoying freedom of speech and could insult Russians all they wanted. Alexander I

Why voting for Trump was the right thing to do (7 reasons)

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/voting-for-trump/ Now that Trump has already comprehensively betrayed all his campaign promises and that he 100 first days in office are marked by nothing else but total chaos, incompetence, betrayals of his closest friends and allies, recklessly dangerous and utterly ineffective grandstanding in foreign policy, there are a lot of people out there who say “I told you so!”, “how could you take

Champs-Elysees attack: Perfect timing, for some

by Ramin Mazaheri On the night of April 21st I was in my office in Paris, just 100 meters from the Champs-Elysees, when I got a phone call from a fellow journalist telling me about the deadly attack on policemen there.

Naval Brief NB 07/17 April 18, 2017 by LeDahu

The Double-Triple-Quadruple-Crossing Trump:

by Ghassan Kadi Trumps recent and sudden 180 degree turn on a number of international issues is mind-boggling, to say the least. But, if we connect the dots it becomes easier to get into the mind of the pragmatic billionaire-turned-President. First and foremost, we must thank Obama for the “if” state of mind he gave us about Trump. Many analysts, including myself, felt hopeful when Clinton was defeated and Trump

NY Times: France can only choose between globalization and racism?

by Ramin Mazaheri So there I was again, on an airplane from San Francisco to New York – the “job creators’ red-eye” – and I had plenty of time to read the New York Times’ Roger Cohen cover the French presidential election in an extended Sunday Review format. Joy of joys! Our “paper of record” has sent Cohen back to cover his old beat for the election. Get ready for some

Trump has lost control over the Pentagon

The Pentagon’s more aggressive military approach Here is a short timeline of the Pentagon taking the presidential commander-in-chief power from Trump. The ultimatums came on March 1. On March 1, 2017 the Atlantic’s article “Trump and the Generals” announced that Trump’s military leaders “increasingly sound like they’re working for a different president altogether.” They complained about the lack of funding, even after Trump pledged to give them additional $54 billion

How to bring down the elephant in the room

First, a painful, but necessary, clarification: Basement crazies.  Neocons. Zionists.  Israel Lobbyists.  Judaics.  Jews.  Somewhere along this list we bump into the proverbial “elephant in the room”.  For some this bumping will happen earlier in the list, for others a little later down the list, but the list will be more or less the same for everybody.  Proper etiquette, as least in the West, would want to make us run

Trump’s escalation and a united Resistance: How the US failed to deter Syria and her allies

By Aram Mirzaei Just as many observers of the Syrian conflict had been thinking that the tragic crisis playing out for the past six years in the Arab country was finally about to see and end, things quickly turned around on April 4 as Syrian “opposition controlled” areas were allegedly hit by chemical weapons, a terrible crime purportedly committed by the “Assad regime”, who apparently decided to defy all logic
