Trump’s Pivot to Asia – An Arms Sales Bonanza – An Anti-Peace Trip

by Peter Koenig for the Saker blog President Trump’s 5-country Asia tour has nothing to do with seeking peace anywhere, it has not even to do with diplomacy – it is entirely a warmongering business trip for the Military Industrial Complex. It is amazing that the world doesn’t catch on. We know about Obama’s several years of pivoting to Asia. It resulted largely in the TPP, the Transpacific Partnership, a

Trump goes full shabbos-goy

I won’t even bother discussing the substance of what Trump had to say today because what he said deserves no such attention.  I will quickly mention that yesterday Trump pulled the US out of UNESCO on behalf of Israeli interests.  Today he basically announced a tepid, possibly hot, war on Iran.  I am tempted to say “so what else is new?”.  In fact, nothing, nothing at all. This topic, the

The Neocons are pushing the USA and the rest of the world towards a dangerous crisis

This analysis was written for the Unz Review. First, my writing on the wall In October of last year a wrote an analysis I entitled The USA are about to face the worst crisis of their history and how Putin’s example might inspire Trump and I think that this is a good time to revisit it now.  I began the analysis by looking at the calamities which would befall the

Why is the Green Climate Fund costing the U.S. a fortune?

by Scott Humor So far, the US government has paid $1 billion to the GCF and the Russian government paid nothing citing the need to review and evaluate this hair-raising financial and political mechanism. In The Air Merchant, one of the most read novels of Alexander Belyaev a Soviet Russian writer of science fiction, a British villain Bayley uses a gigantic air-sucking device, built by Swedish scientist Engelbrecht to slowly

Trump and the bubbles from a sunken (old) world

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/trump-and-the-bubbles-from-a-sunken-old-world/ First, a confession: I really don’t know how the corporate media has covered the Trump trip to NATO and the G7 summit. Frankly, I don’t really care – it’s been a long while already since I stopped listening to these imperial shills. There is a risk in completely ignoring them, and that risk is the risk to say “white” when everybody

Trump: dancing with wolves on the Titanic

This article was written for the Unz Review. Robert Fisk put it best: “Trump Is About To Really Mess Up In The Middle East”. Following his fantastically stupid decision to attack the Syrian military with cruise missiles Trump or, should I say, the people who take decisions for him, probably realized that it was “game over” for any US policy in the Middle-East so they did the only thing they

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

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

Trump orders a military attack on Syria – a crucial moment for Russia

So now we finally have the answer to the key question whether Trump was for real of a fake: he has just ordered a cruise missile attack on Syria.  Words fail me to express my total disgust with Trump. All I will say is this:  this is a moment as crucial as the US/NATO aggression against Yugoslavia in 1999.  When that happened, Evgenii Primakov, then Prime Minister of Russia, who

The Trump administration goes Neocon-crazy

Oh boy, that did not take long.  As I wrote in February, the Neocons and the US deep state have completely neutered Trump.  Just look at these two headlines from RT (and read the articles):  ‘It crossed a lot of lines’: Trump on alleged chemical gas attack in Syria ‘We are compelled to take own action’ if UN fails in Syria – US envoy Frankly, I feel like saying “QED

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

The anti-Flynn ‘deep state’ coup – spelling it out in the clearest way possible

Okay, my sense is that a large number of commentators are misunderstanding the nature of what is going on.  So, this time, rather than writing an analysis, I will spell it out, ‘talking points’ – style and, hopefully, do a better job about making my point.  So, here we go.  THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN.  Let me repeat that once more.  THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN!!!  Please don’t come and

TRUMP PRESIDENCY – first SNAFUs already

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/trump-presidency-first-snafus-already/ It is a rare privilege to be able to criticize a politician for actually fulfilling his campaign promises but Donald Trump is a unique President and this week he offered us exactly this opportunity with not one, but three different SNAFUs to report. First, there was the botched raid against an alleged al-Qaeda compound in Yakla, Yemen. First, let me commit

Full Interview With Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov

Compare Dimiti Peskov to his US counterparts (Kriby, Psaki, etc.) and you will immediately see what the main problem and weakness of the USA is. I noted that the questions asked where less rabidly hostile than what most of what the western media used to ask over the past years.  Could it be that NBC or US journalists in general “got the message” from Trump and are slowly changing their
