Germany SITREP February 6th, by C.

In a sick twist, now that the Trump-bashing Steinmeier has been promoted from foreign minister to head of state, his former position goes to Sigmar Gabriel. Who has insulted Trump even more gravely (as reported in my last sitrep). Gabriel is a pathetic loser. Under his leadership the SPD has become a shadow of its former self. (In 1990 the SPD had close to a million members, today not even

A glimpse into practical outcome of the US and EU “War on News,” by Scott Humor

To thesaker.is readers: I have posed here a wrong video . The captions for the video: “On November 29th, in Kharkov women’s choir performed one of the most beautiful patriotic Russian songs “Only My Horse and I” [Только мы с конем]” Should read: “Song “Horse” being performed by Lyube and in Krasnodar in 2015. ” An Anonymous sent me a message via Moderators.

Germany and the EU SITREP November 22nd, 2016 by C.

 The featured image captions: – Wait. I think they are up to something! The news in Germany have lately been dominated by Trumps victory. At least in the mainstream media this outcome is generally portrayed as a complete catastrophe.  The Spiegel cover “THE END OF THE WORLD (as we know it): Scroll down for more quotes from German press. Or the venerable FAZ: They quote Vice Chancellor Gabriel: “Trump ist der

Western “Culture” is a Cult of Death / Some thoughts on BREXIT and Coup in Turkey / Translation: Interview with Green Youth spokesperson I have been meaning to write an article for a very long time now. But whenever I sat down to actually do it, it did not work. It sort of feels like a rotten tooth. You know it needs to get out. It hurts while it’s still

Men don’t arch their backs, or why Russians reject “Western values” by Scott Humor Updated

European Military Expenditure per capita 2016 map   Virtual beads and all that… Cat Motya on the meaning of the “European values” “I have been thinking about how mice have brainwashed the European tribes. The technology of brainwashing is very simple and has not changed with the colonization of the Americas, but with one difference. Native Americans were selling their lands for glass beads.  Since then, the “global elites” of

ET is worried about EU (at least so says European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker)

Guys, this is not a joke.  Those who understand French can listen and hear for themselves: Here is what he actually said: “You need to know that those who observe us from afar are worried. I have have seen, listened and heard many leaders of other planets and they are very worried because they wonder about the course the EU will follow. So we have to reassure both the Europeans

After BREXIT: Russia Ukraine Finland Poland SITREP, by Scott Humor

Michael McFaul, the Washington Post and all others who declared Brexit to be a Putin’s victory, still don’t understand that Putin has won long before June 23rd referendum. The fact that the UK, the heart of the EU, has left the EU shows that they are just started to react to the Russia’s victory. By orchestrating this referendum, the British demonstrate their willingness to divide Europe as quickly as possible.

Cracks in the EU

by Kakaouskia Greetings to the Saker community and readers. So, the UK people, contrary to the “script” that wanted a narrow Remain win have elected to leave the European Union. As it could also have been predicted, there are calls to repeat the vote as the result is not the “correct” one. And as if the extremely narrow gap between the two voting blocs was not bad enough – for

The Middle Eastern Wars Iran Hezbollah Saudis Yemen Hadi GCC Arab Coalition SITREP January 18th, 2016 by Rambo

Iran/Hezbollah: • I add a significant amount of information on the Iranian military and doctrine in this section. I feel like many people think Iran is an underdog because of the Syrian conflict but it has locked down its own backyard quite impressively. • Iranian losses have been nearly 100 IRGC fighters (maybe more now) and at least 4 senior commanders [Source] • Hezbollah protects Christian communities inside Syria during

Germany EU SITREP October 21st, 2015 by Gepard Schröder

The political conflict over the refugee issue intensifies. There is a growing schism in German society and even within political parties. Local politicians who by the nature of their positions are closer to the concerns of the citizenry are beginning to defect from the dictate of the party leaders. SPD: The mayor of Magdeburg has left the SPD over a dispute with his higher-ups regarding his stance on the refugee

Full transcript of Alexis Tsipras statement: Greek citizens, We are at a critical juncture regarding the future of this country. Sunday’s referendum is not about whether our country will stay in the Eurozone. This is a given and no one should question this. On Sunday we will choose whether to accept the institutions’ agreement or whether, with the strength of the people’s verdict, we will seek a viable solution. In any

Greece to hold referendum

Europe seems to have a real problem with referenda.  First, the EU categorically rejected the referendum in Crimea, now they have tried to prevent the people of Greece of having a say in their future.  And the EU has failed again – the Greeks will hold their referendum: (please press ‘cc’ to see the English subtitles)

Syriza: Voting to join a realm of shared, sustainable prosperity

by Mario   Recap: In 1971 Bretton Woods failed. The United States implemented a new strategy: Disregard its twin deficits and act as a gargantuan vacuum cleaner that sucked in the trade surpluses of Germany, Japan and later China, attracting into Wall Street between $3 to $5 billion net on each working day. Forcing productivity and zero real wage rises created a further daily 5$ billion domestically for corporations. All
