Russia’s GDP is close to Germany’s

By @AlexanderIV17 (Twitter) for the Saker blog One of the favorite lines of the West propagandists is “ Russia doesn’t count, it’s about the size of Italy’s GDP” . I remember B.Obama saying something like that with scorn in December 2016, when D.Trump had just been elected and the Democrats were abuzz with all sorts of Russian conspiracy theories. Ever since the Empire and its minions, serfs and vassals have

Ideologies are no longer the way we know them and this means that the world is being reconfigured

By Guilherme Wilbert for the Saker Blog I try to bring a reflection in most of my texts about what competes for the international diplomatic and monetary future after Operation Z in Ukraine, but also, I always try to bring the ideological part into the discussion because this still makes many people’s heads spin. Or are Ukrainian flag-wavers not ideologized? Capitalism and communism have always been enemies at their core,

The Stupendous Tale

“Gold is money, everything else is credit” J. P. Morgan. Tarik in the Vinyard for the Saker Blog Empires, dynasties, new eras, they rise not on ideological abstractions or brute force, but with intellectual or moral discipline. Then they wither not by rigorous reason or righteous fury, but with pompous and extravagant proclamations. That’s just the way it is, that’s what they all do. This particular version of the age

Nikolai Patrushev: Truth Is on Our Side – About the Timing of the Special Operation

Translated by Leo V. Original Link: The special operation in Ukraine brought to a climax the confrontation between Russia and Western countries led by the United States. The battles are going on not only in the vastness of Ukraine, but also in the economic, political and cultural planes. What threats are facing Russia and how long can the special operation continue, Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian

Unmasking – Part 2

By Naresh Jotwani for the Saker Blog From time to time, certain self-promoting “brainy” people come up with complicated theories about how the world should be organized and run. One imagines that such people dislike doing real work for a living – and grandiose theorizing proves to be an irresistibly tempting gig, with many perks. Such a theory gets labelled as “something-ism”, such as “liberalism”, “monetarism”, “capitalism”, “Marxism”, “socialism” and

Sitrep Operation Z: + consequences = petty Tabaquis howling

For the Saker Blog by Saker Staff After the Russian forces took POPASNA, the pace increased. There are still battles, but the Russians are now rolling over everything else in the Donbas. The Ukrainians are being annihilated, more and more soldiers are refusing to fight, reports of mass surrenders pour in, and the Russian strategy of cauldrons and partial cauldrons is proving incredibly effective. It is a bloody war in

So How Serious is Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Romance?

By Cynthia Chung for the Saker Blog In the history of civilization, Politics has more often than not, been a matter reduceable to the question of “whose side are you on?” Granted it is not an easy affair to discern what most-nearly approaches truth in the fog of “the present.” Hindsight is 20/20 they say, although that is also not entirely true, for the interpretation of history is just another

Empire of Bioweapon Lies

By Pepe Escobar, posted with the author’s permission and widely cross-posted What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow / Out of this stony rubbish?

On Wars, Propaganda and outright Lies

By Francis Lee for the Saker Blog. Here is a typical political offering from the British centre-left. As follows: ‘’Putin’s war on Ukraine has led to thousands of deaths, upended the world order, and intensified the global energy crisis. At home in Britain, it has led to an outpouring of support for Ukrainian refugees – if not for black and brown people fleeing war and persecution – and provided cover

Sitrep: Operation Z

The biggest news of today’s cycle is the wild admission by the Pentagon, U.S. media, etc., that the U.S. has in fact employed a “strategy” of outright lying and making up fake intelligence to ‘combat Russia’. Astounding quote from article: “President Joe Biden later said it publicly. But three U.S. officials told NBC News this week there is no evidence Russia has brought any chemical weapons near Ukraine. They

The Curious History of American Exceptionalism

by Jimmie Moglia for the Saker Blog Francois Mitterrand, the longest serving president of France (1981-1985), not long before he died (1996), he made this quite extraordinary statement: “France does not know it, but she is at war with America. A permanent, vital, economic war, and only apparently a victimless war. Yes, the Americans are inexorable, they are voracious, they want undivided power over the world… It is an unknown

The Saker interviews Michael Hudson

Following Putin’s announcement about selling gas for Rubles only to hostile nations, I decided to reach out to Michael Hudson and ask him (my level, primitive) questions.  Here is our full email exchange: Andrei: Russia has declared that she will only sell gas to “hostile countries” for Rubles.  Which means that to non-hostile countries she will continue to sell in Dollars/Euros.  Can these hostile countries still purchase gas from Russia

The many “great coming outs” triggered by the war in the Ukraine

Dear friends, For four weeks now we have been discussing the Russian special military operation in the Ukraine and most of what we looked at was happening either in the Ukraine proper or near it.  I did mention plenty of time that “this is not about the Ukraine, this is about the future collective security arrangement of Europe“, which is true.  But even that does not show the full picture. 

Say hello to Russian gold and Chinese petroyuan

The Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union and China just agreed to design the mechanism for an independent financial and monetary system that would bypass dollar transactions. By Pepe Escobar with the author’s permission and cross-posted with The Cradle It was a long time coming, but finally some key lineaments of the multipolar world’s new foundations are being revealed.

Open letter to TV watching western armchair generals

My dear TV western armchair generals, I get it, I promise.  I really do! Your entire life you have been trained to see a successful military operation like so: Begin by bombing the shit of the “hadjis” or “sand niggers” with bombs and missiles, then flatten their town à la Fallujah, then move in with heavy armor and shoot everything which still moves or breathes. Then distribute chewing-gums to a

Friends, I need your help, now more than ever!

Dear friends, I just spoke to our IT guru (Herb) and he told me that since the escalation in tensions around the Russian ultimatum to the West the number of pages served each day has doubled.  We serve about 175’000 pages each day.  That is a whopping 5+ MILLION pages per month (175’000*30.5=5’337’500).  I think that this is 2M above our previous record. The truth is that the Saker blog

Dear friends Today I am driving all day, but since there is a very serious color revolution that seems to be taking place in Kazakhstan,  I am therefore creating an open thread.  Please feel free to share any decent information and commentaries below.  According to Russian sources, the usual US-controlled disinformation resources (including Ukie ones!) are out in full force to support the insurrection.  The levels of violence are very

Post-American world

Rostislav Ishchenko develops his theme first posted here: Russian World as a global project into global multipolarity and covers why and how the West ran into a dead end, and where the multipolar situation may lead. Please note it is a machine translation with some human assistance, and it is not a perfect document.  It however makes his points clear enough, for the discussion on this massive global change. Today
