And now, a message from our Neocon crazies

Note: I just saw this in Commentary Magazine online.  It is too good to pass.  I have to share that with you. And just for funzies, I bolded out the most blatant lies/misrepresentations.  Have fun! The Saker ——- Is Russia Ready for Another Land Grab in Ukraine? It’s time for a new strategy. by Noah Rothman Two weeks ago, the world reacted with palpable shock to the news that Russia

Brave Poroshenko – the Worse It Is for Him, the More Dangerous He Is For Others

By Rostislav Ishchenko Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard cross posted with source: In recent days, in connection with the frank violation by Poroshenko’s regime of all international norms, and also of the articles of the Constitution and laws of Ukraine regulating relations between the church and state, experts and politicians often ask a question (not always having a rhetorical character): is he really not afraid of

The U.S. Government’s Plan Is to Conquer Russia by a Surprise Invasion

by Eric Zuesse for The Saker Blog The following combination of articles explains — and they link to conclusive evidence proving — that the United States Government is actually designing its nuclear forces now with the intention to win a nuclear war against Russia (World War III), and no longer (if they ever really were) adhering to the idea (“Mutually Assured Destruction”) that WW III would produce unacceptable catastrophe for

Ukraine sets up for a possible winter offensive in LDNR

by GH Eliason for The Saker Blog Everything is pointing to Ukraine starting a winter offensive in Donbass and the possible use of a chemical weapon false flag event to kick it off. The Ukraine of 2018 is far different than what Europe was expecting. Instead of economic and social reform that was promised at Ukraine’s 2014 Euro-maidan coup, the government of Petr Poroshenko is taking a brute force approach

Another View of the EU (European Union)

by Jimmie Moglia for The Saker Blog The MacDonaldization of words forces many to lay that reason asleep which disturbs their gayety. Among recent new entries is ‘Brexit’, a word suitable to a speaking-club made of millions, where most half-hear what, if they heard the whole, they would but half-understand. Furthermore, some words in time are debased by repetition, and can no longer be heard without an involuntary sense of

France’s Yellow Vests: It’s just 1 protest…which has lasted 8 years

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog The most important thing to understand about France’s Yellow Vest movement is that the Mainstream Media wants you to view it as an isolated incident which exists in a vacuum, when we are much better served to look at in a continuum. When the Yellow Vests started I was not foolish to say: “So what?” After all, the Yellow Vest movement is dwarfed

European Union Corruption Case Study: Ukraine

By Ollie Richardson for The Saker Blog Over the past 4 years, since the coup d’etat in Kiev in 2014 orchestrated by the “civilised” West, a “team of reformers” has been at work in Ukraine. They promised to implement so-called “anti-corruption reforms” in cooperation with European countries, such as France and Germany, who, by the way, both placed a stake on installing project “anti-Russia” aka Euromaidan. But here is where

Why Russia won’t invade the Ukraine, the Baltic statelets or anybody else

[this article was written for the Unz Review] The AngloZionist propaganda machine is constantly warning us that Russia is about to invade some country.  The list of candidates for invasion is long and ranges from Norway to the Ukraine and includes the Baltic statelets, Poland and even countries further West.  Of course, we are also told that NATO and the US are here to prevent that.  Well, thank God for

Book review: Professor Stephen Cohen’s “War with Russia?”

by Yvonne Lorenzo for The Saker Blog Over ten years ago, one of the few voices that I listened to that provided facts outside the propaganda narrative of the legacy mass media and the U.S. government on what the situation was regarding Georgia fighting with Russia was from Russia scholar Professor Stephen Cohen. I felt blessed to discover him and his work. After the events in Ukraine, where a U.S.

Khashoggi Part 4: fake-leftism identical in Saudi Arabian or Western form

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog File it under “things we’d like to be true…so we never examine it”: The West’s unstated belief that their politics are exponentially morally superior to those of Saudi Arabia. “We only work with them – we are not at all like them,” is what it boils down to. This article aims to show just how similar “Oriental despotism” is to “Occidental domination” in

Bruckner, Hitler, Malevich (part 2)

by David A. Powell for The Saker Blog Part 2 of 2 parts The case of Malevich – regardless of how it appears in most official narratives of the present (but especially those found in the Web) – is unique in the entire history of art. For the first time in history, one encounters – as Jean-Claude Marcadé has pointed out – not merely an artist writing about art among

The trials and tribulations of Turkish foreign policy

Professor Hasan Unal, a top political scientist based in Istanbul, explains the geopolitics of his region, the eastern Mediterranean and into the Black Sea by Pepe Escobar (cross-posted with The Asia Times by special agreement with the author) When Vladimir Putin visited President Erdogan’s lavish new $500-million presidential palace in Ankara, he had one thing to say: “I’m very impressed.” Professor Hasan Unal, savoring the dry humor, derives as much pleasure

Bruckner, Hitler, Malevich (part 1)

by David A. Powell for The Saker Blog Part 1 of 2 parts This essay attempts to outline why Adolf Hitler remained unsuccessful in his efforts as an old-fashioned (“old-world”) dictator to achieve total control over art. My thesis is that while the Free World had already begun to accomplish the total control of art Hitler sought to achieve, Hitler’s failure lay in not grasping the means employed by the

Uber-loser Poroshenko goes “full Saakashvili”

[This article was written for the Unz Review] Petro Poroshenko is in deep trouble. His ratings have been in the single-digit range in spite of a vast propaganda effort, and his latest attempt to create a salvific crisis involving the usual “Russian aggression” has not only failed but appears to be backfiring. It is now becoming abundantly clear that the Ukronazi provocation was not only breathtakingly stupid and irresponsible, but
