Hurricane Isaias coming: I might be out of touch for a while (UPDATED)

Dear friends As you might have heard, there is a hurricane coming very close to the Florida Atlantic coast: Hurricane Isaias The actual effects of the hurricane are hard to predict, since it depends on whether Isaias will turn to the right or to the left by just a few degrees.  This is especially true since Isaias is slowing down to take the right hand turn, which makes it hard

Bring In The Feds! Protection Of Natural Rights Trumps Federalism

by Ilana Mercer, posted with the author’s authorization America circa 2020 continues to erupt in riots, spurred by the death-by-cop of George Floyd. The violence is qualitatively different to the violence that roiled the U.S. during the race riots of 1964. Whether you thought those riots right or wrong, back in 1964, state police officers were a forceful presence for law-and-order. They did damage to rioters as deliberately as they

How Nazism Came to Dominate Both of America’s Political Parties

by Eric Zuesse for The Saker Blog The following 11-minute youtube video is a good introduction to this article: Ukraine Crisis — What You’re Not Being Told —— On July 20th, Moss Robeson headlined at TheGrayZone, “Influential DC-based Ukrainian think tank hosts neo-Nazi activist convicted for racist violence”, and he reported the inescapably visible tip of America’s iceberg of pro-nazi policies regarding Ukraine. Ukraine is a country which during World

Serbian tyrant’s nasty scheme to misrepresent protests

by Saker’s Johnny-on-the-spot in Belgrade for The Saker Blog Daily protests against tyrant Vučić continue unabated in front of Parliament in Belgrade and are nearing their twentieth consecutive day. The regime’s early hopes of dispersing them by using brutal police violence against the protesters have themselves been dispersed. Every evening several hundred citizens, “keepers of the flame” as they like to call themselves, gather on parliament plateau and hold their

Wrong Again! But, who? Serbs or the media?

by Višeslav Simić, PhD, for The Saker Blog “Illiterate degenerates, baby killers, butchers, and rapists,” as the then US Senator, and now the US Democratic Party’s Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, described the Serbs, are again in the focus of the global “p(l)andemic” propagators because they have en masse gathered in front of the country’s Parliament to protest “the Covid 19 measures.” Yet, as in most other cases, the Western media got only

Paying it forward – Erdogan style

by Ghassan and Intibah Kadi for the Saker Blog With all eyes globally poised at COVID-19 and the impending economic meltdown, Black-Lives-Matter activism, and the protests in the USA and some Western countries, little attention is given to the rise of a potentially more formidable religious fundamentalism base for ISIS-style and orientation than ISIS itself; and indications are pointing to this happening right now, in today’s Turkey. Al-Qaeda and ISIS

Serbian tyrant caught in a pincer, the stage is set for his spectacular fall

by Saker’s Johnny-on-the-spot for The Saker Blog We spoke too soon, it turns out, about the Dr. Vladimir Mentus, the young Serbian sociologist, being released from prison and charges against him being dropped. At one point several days ago the appellate chamber did vacate the of the misdemeanour court judge’s decision sentencing Dr Mentus to thirty days for participation in the protests, specifically for “insulting” the police, and remanded the

Nasrallah: ‘Israel is not a Jewish State and will be destroyed, the settlers will be expelled or decimated’

Extract from an interview with Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on May 26, 2020, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Liberation of southern Lebanon. The interview lasted almost 3 hours. Will Al-Quds (Jerusalem) be ‘liberated’ like the Crusaders in 1099, who put to the swords all the Muslims & Jews, including women and children, or like Saladin in 1187, who allowed the Christian occupiers to leave

The Polarized Pens that Polish Turds Mightily

by Denis A. Conroy for the Saker Blog It took a virus to remind us that we oscillate within the gamut of a micro-macro dynamic, and more significantly, that we can no longer afford the desultory polarizations that separate us from the dual reality that underscores our existence; the balance that exists between give and take that is essential for the emotional and mental well-being of all humans. In the

Day 8 – The tyrant makes a cardinal mistake

by Saker’s Johnny-on-the-spot in Belgrade for The Saker Blog Alexander Vučić’s tyranny demonstrated its hubris today by finally arresting one of its most outspoken and fearless opponents, the Serbian Savonarola, Orthodox monk Anthony. The monk spoke day in and day out at rallies in front of the parliament building, denouncing the tyrant and all his works. The arrest was preceded by a dirty week-long campaign against the cleric in media

The Future for China

by Eric Zuesse for the Saker Blog On July 14th, the two conjoined gangster-regimes, U.S. & UK, simultaneously started, with deadly seriousness, their aggressive economic war against China. Business Insider headlined “US Navy warship challenges China in South China Sea as US blasts Beijing’s ‘unlawful’ claims and ‘gangster tactics’” and reported that, After the US Department of State declared Beijing’s maritime claims in the South China Sea and efforts to

There is a dark and dangerous forest behind these burning trees…

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] Roughly half-way through the year 2020 it is becoming pretty obvious that there are a number of major developments which almost got our total attention, and for good reason, as these are tectonic shifts which truly qualify as “catastrophe” (under the definition “a violent and sudden change in a feature of the earth“).  These are: The initiation of the global collapse of

A true intelligence assessment, for once!

by Naresh Jotwani for The Saker Blog On this amazingly beautiful planet, a certain prominent society has been exhibiting rather strange behaviour in recent decades. Surprisingly, it is the ‘high IQ’ people of this society – its presumed ‘thought-leaders’ – who show the strangest patterns of behaviour. The ‘high IQ’ strange patterns of behaviour may be categorized roughly as follows: (1) Many ‘high IQ’ people (HIQP, for short), have decided

Serbia SITREP: Day 6 – Mindless brutality escalates in Serbia

by Saker’s Johnny-on-the-spot in Belgrade for The Saker Blog Yes, Israel Shamir was on to something while showering Serbs with fulsome praise for derailing the globalist project with their anti-lockdown, anti-Vučić tyranny, insurrection. A measure of respect they have indeed earned. But let’s not count chickens before they hatch. This is not yet the Serbs’ March 27 1941 moment, or even a decent replay of the gloriously defiant 1999. What

SITREP: Day 4 in Belgrade – the unravelling of a popular revolt, or of the regime?

by Saker’s Johnny-on-the-spot in Belgrade for the Saker Blog What started a few days ago as a vigorous grass-roots movement is slowly but surely being reconfigured (and not in the good sense) on the streets of Belgrade and other cities in Serbia. Violent regime-infiltrated thugs and agents provocateurs are gradually gaining the upper hand around the parliament building in Belgrade, which is the focal point of the nation-wide protests. Their

Mass protests shake the throne of Serbia’s insufferable tyrant

by Saker’s Johnny-on-the-spot in Serbia for The Saker Blog The regime of one of Europe’s last two tyrants (guess where the other one is, hint: also in the Balkans) has been convulsed by massive outbursts of popular discontent and disobedience during the last two days. For all his fabled manipulative skills, Alexander Vučić, the tyrant here in question, made the foolish miscalculation by taking himself and his ability to intimidate

Does the next Presidential election even matter?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] Just by asking the question of whether the next Presidential election matters, I am obviously suggesting that it might not.  To explain my reasons for this opinion, I need to reset the upcoming election in the context of the previous one.  So let’s begin here. The 2016 election of Donald Trump The first thing which, I believe, ought to be self-evident to
