Morbid racist poster in EU Croatia

by Stephen Karganovic Contemporary Croatia strikes one as a “European values” free zone. Even though Croatia has been a full-fledged member of the European Union and of NATO for several years, it has been remarkably resistant to the application, or even bare acknowledgment, of principles that – on the surface at least – constitute the ideological core of the entities it joined. Tolerance, or at a minimum refraining from grossly

Interesting week for Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/interesting-week-for-vladimir-putin-and-donald-trump/   Putin’s latest move I don’t follow the western corporate media so I don’t really know how much coverage this development has received in the West, but in Russia and the Ukraine the big news is the decision by Russia to begin recognizing official Novorussian documents such as passports, driver licenses, school and college diplomas, etc. The Russians were pretty specific

Russian “Liberal” Media’s Foreign Sponsors

https://southfront.org/russian-liberal-medias-foreign-sponsors/ The hysteria concerning the alleged Russian “interference” in the US presidential election appears to be a mirror projection of techniques that have been used against Russia, with little or no success, with the aim of  interfering in its political processes. While the propaganda campaign aimed at Russia has sought to foster the impression that the country’s media is strictly controlled, in actuality the “liberal opposition” newspapers and radio stations

CrossTalk: Revolt in the West

  The West appears to have entered into a new era – the era of the political upsets, growing anger, and increased disillusionment with ruling elites. It is not a question of leftwing – rightwing politics. It is all about a failing status quo. CrossTalking with Stephen Haseler, Marcus Papadopoulos, and Joaquin Flores.

What does Russia produce? 1

by Scott Humor This past September, in one of his regular interviews with the newspaper Parlamentní Listy, retired Czech Major General Hynek Blaško commented on the possibility of a conflict between Russia and NATO with a following anecdote: “I have seen a popular joke on the Internet about Obama and his generals in the Pentagon debating on the best timing to attack Russia. They couldn’t come to any agreement, so they decided to

American Fascists Co-Opt Trump Protests Hiding Inside Civil Rights Movement

by GH Eliason Over the last couple of years I’ve written volumes on fascists making inroads into American politics and civil life. With civil and human rights it starts with understanding a little about what’s known as the Four Freedoms. And there are many legitimate civil rights groups today that go under that banner. In 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave what became known as the Four Freedoms speech. He

Turkey-led forces have failed to seize Qabasin and Bzaah, and retreated from almost all areas seized inside al-Bab. Intense fighting is ongoing. Meanwhile, the Syrian army, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, continued its operation against

Are Russian diplomats being assassinated? (UPDATED)

Since the death of Vitaly Churkin I see more and more speculations that Russian diplomats are being killed (example here and here)  This is exceedingly unlikely and I consider these speculations to be based on ignorance and a form of “clickbaiting”.  Here is why: So four senior Russian diplomats have died in one month.  Considering how many diplomats Russia has worldwide, this hardly a tsunami. They died in Ankara (murder),

A former (?) Mossad officer predicts that Trump will be impeached on grounds of treason

Thanks to “MS” who drew my attention to this amazing video.  This is an except from an RT program entitled “Watching the Hawks” (see full video here).  In this excerpt, a (supposedly) “former” Mossad officer, Juval Aviv, predicts that Donald Trump will be impeached for treason in the next few months.  See for yourself: Nevermind the telling way Aviv constantly uses “us” when speaking of the USA and nevermind the

EXCLUSIVE Interview with first head of LPR South-East Army counter-intelligence unit Vladimir Gromov

EXCLUSIVE Interview with first head of LPR South-East Army counter-intelligence unit Vladimir Gromov about paths the future of Ukraine and South-East could take. (Interview by PolitWera. Translation by V.P.E.) Can we say that partitioning of Ukraine benefits the West? If yes, why? V.G.: I would put it this way. Nobody needs Ukraine in its current configuration. The “color revolution” tactic based predominantly on destruction and division, is a US tactic.
