Martyrdom of Imam Ali (Allayhu-Salaam) and the Muslims’ March into a Long and Dark Winter Solstice

By Mansoureh Tajik for the Saker Blog Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim, “In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. If we were to understand Imam Ali (Allayhu-Salaam) merely as an individual by examining slices of his life in isolation and dimensions of his socio-political praxis in bits and pieces, we could advance our understanding of his wilayat no more than we would if we tried to make sense of how

Xi and Putin make the case for win-win vs. zero-sum

By Pepe Escobar, posted with permission and first posted at Asia Times So the Davos Agenda has come and gone. That was the virtual Great Reset preview, hosted by Kissinger acolyte cum World Economic Forum (WEF) oracle Herr Klaus Schwab. Still, corporate/political so-called “leaders” will continue to wax lyrical about the Fourth Industrial Revolution – or its mild spin-offs such as Build Back Better, the favorite slogan of the new

The Great Interregnum

by Francis Lee for The Saker Blog The road to the future, to a new expansion as is always close to the heart of capital, led outwards, to the still pleasantly unregulated world of a borderless global economy in which markets would no longer be locked into nation-states, but nation-states locked into markets. (1) The golden age of post-war capitalism which lasted from the Bretton Woods arrangements of 1944 ended

The Biden doctrine, the return of empires and the European paradox

By Fabio Reis Vianna for the Saker Blog At the end of the tragic year 2020, Jake Sullivan launched a tweet urging Europeans to act together in the face of “China’s worrying economic behavior.” Today’s National Security Advisor to the newly sworn-in Democratic administration thus gave the first signs of what the Joe Biden administration would look like to the traditional allies of the United States. Sullivan’s words not only

If America Dissolves

By Larry Romanoff for the Saker Blog This essay is an introduction to the topic of Mass Propaganda and, perhaps more importantly, to a brief series of articles detailing how the US has been for more than 100 years the most propagandised and brainwashed nation in the world. The history of this has been buried for generations, but the facts are indisputable. One of the most important elements in this

The Destructive Plan Behind the Biden Russia Agenda

[Note by the Saker: as most of you know, I don’t do reposts (see here why).  This time, however, I decided to make a small exception to this rule and I emailed William and asked him for the permission to repost his excellent article on the hardcore russophobic elements inside Biden’s team.  William has very kindly allowed me to do so, so here it is below] by William Engdahl, reposted

What Wall Street fears

By The Ister for the Saker Blog The origin of modern banking can be found in the early days of the gold trade. In the Middle Ages, goldsmiths accepted deposits of gold in return for paper notes, which could be exchanged for the deposits at a later date. Because these paper notes were more convenient for commercial use than physical metal, they were usually not redeemed for gold right away.

American Prospect

by Sushi for the Saker Blog If you wish to understand the concerns of those who attended the 1/6 Save America rally, you can learn much by watching the first three minutes of this video . If you wish to understand the issues that lie at the heart of the Nancy Pelosi – Never-Trump response, you can do no better than watching the same three minutes. Three minutes is not

Democrats’ ‘divide and conquer’ Senate show trial may jeopardize duopoly

by Ramin Mazaheri and PressTV Much ink could be spilled about the upcoming, and second, Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, but that would be a waste of ink – the trial has nothing to do with social justice or patriotism and everything to do with aggravating political divisions for elites’ gain. We could say it’s just “politics as usual”, but only if: the “True Rate of Unemployment” wasn’t pushing

Joe Biden-Administration may focus only on internal issues

by Zamir Awan for the Saker Blog Congratulations! Joe Biden has been taken oath as the 46th U.S. president, terminating one of the most intense political transitions in modern American history. Due to various internal threats, heavy deployment of troops has turned Capital Washington into a military Garrison. The security measured taken never witnessed in the past. Donald Trump – who has not formally acknowledged the presidency to Mr. Joe

Xi reads the Multilateral Riot Act at Davos

by Pepe Escobar, posted with permission and first posted at Asia Times The virtual Davos Agenda is finally on, from Monday to Friday this week, promoted by the World Economic Forum (WEF). No, this is not The Great Reset. At least not yet. The Agenda is the aperitivo towards the Great Reset apotheosis at the WEF’s Special Annual Meeting, which will take place this coming spring in Singapore. The Agenda’s

American Dystopia – The Propaganda Mask and the Utopia Syndrome

By Larry Romanoff for the Saker Blog In an article in the NYT on America’s “Racial Democracy” (or racist democracy), (1) Jason Stanley and Vesla Weaver noted “The philosopher Elizabeth Anderson argued that when political ideals diverge very widely from reality, the ideals themselves may prevent us from seeing the gap. When the official story differs greatly from the reality of practice, the official story becomes a kind of mask

Deir Ezzor is a Sign of Things to Come

by The Ister for The Saker Blog The billowing wheat fields of Syria once were a staple that kept the people sated through times of struggle. Until the beginning of the war, Syria was a net food exporter, providing grain to neighboring countries and enjoying a healthy supply more than sufficient to feed its population. When the attempted overthrow of Bashar al-Assad began in 2011, the nation collapsed into chaos

Why Donald Trump Had to Go

By Peter Koenig for the Saker Blog There is an agenda. A huge agenda. It is a Globalist agenda that is in the process of inflicting gigantic harm to humanity. It is called the Covid-19 – The Great Reset, issued by the World Economic Forum (WEF), authored by its founder, Klaus Schwab. If left undisturbed, The Great Reset’s plan is a crime of epic dimensions, never seen before in our

The Defense of Mr. Trump

By Sushi for the Saker Blog The header picture shows the rotunda dome of the People’s House as first seen by me in a video captured on 1/6. I had been to Washington years before. I had viewed the Jefferson Memorial through the cherry blossoms, attempted to enter the Washington Monument (the stairs were accessible, but the elevator was broken), explored the Smithsonian, stood in President’s Park and gawked at

The Making of US Empire at the dawning of its end

by Pepe Escobar posted with permission and first posted at Asia Times As the Exceptional Empire gets ready to brave a destructive – and self-destructive – new cycle, with dire, unforeseen consequences bound to reverberate across the world, now more than ever it is absolutely essential to go back to the imperial roots. The task is fully accomplished by Tomorrow, the World: The Birth of U.S. Global Supremacy , by

Which nation will US Democrats try to destroy in the next 4 years?

by Ramin Mazaheri (@RaminMazaheri2) and cross-posted with PressTV John Kennedy’s “Camelot” was a magical time for US leftists. Too bad its promise was not fully realised – his attempted armed overthrow of the Cuban Revolution failed to return Washington’s fascist allies to power. It’s so interesting how Lyndon Baines Johnson was brought down by mass protests which were not equaled until Donald Trump. The difference is that the anti-LBJ protests

Hacking the human mind

The One and Only Significant Story About WHATSAPP’s Privacy Debate By Amir NOUR[1] for the Saker Blog “It’s only hubris if I fail” (Gaius Julius Caesar) Two years ago, almost to the day, I wrote a piece[2] in these same columns. What I thought was an important topic, namely the close and dangerous relationship between the GAFAs and transhumanism, went somewhat unnoticed, compared to other more pressing issues on the

America’s First Revolution Is Happening Now

by Paul Craig Roberts reposted on the Saker by permission source:  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/01/19/americas-first-revolution-is-happening-now/ Hear me out and you will understand the title. There is a difference between a rebellion and a revolution.  A rebellion is what occurred in the thirteen colonies in the late 18th century.  A revolution is what occurred in Russia in 1917. A rebellion occurred in the colonies, because the subjects of the king in the colonies were treated differently
