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

US Ambassador posts a message to the Russian people

Something rather hilarious just happened: the US Embassy in Moscow decided to hang up a big “LGBT+” flag next to the Stars and Stripes, see for yourself: Pretty soon the Russians, being Russian, made a joke out of it saying that the “LGBT Embassy” in Moscow decided to fly the Stars and Stripes :-) But that was not enough.  The clueless US Ambassador to Russia, John Sullivan, decided that he

What kind of “popular revolution” is this?!

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the USA are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc.  As for the violence, looting and riots – they are either excused as a result of some

The Empire takes a knee. Let it. But we don’t have to!

[This article was written for the Unz Review] It is quite interesting to observe how many commentators are completely misreading the current race riots or compare them with previous race riots in the history of the USA.  I suppose that by telling themselves that these latest riots are “just like” or “not nearly as bad” as past US race riots they try to reassure themselves by maintaining the illusion that

Did Trump just cancel a potential double-war?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] At this time of writing, it is too early to declare the danger over, but at least three out of five Iranian tankers have made it safely to Venezuela (confirmation from TeleSur and PressTV).  Furthermore, while we should never say “never”, it appears exceedingly unlikely that the US would let three tankers pass only to then try to impede the arrival of

Will Trump really start *two* wars instead of “just” one?

[Note: this article was written for the Unz Review] Amidst the worldwide pandemic induced scare most of us have probably lost track of all the other potential dangers which still threaten international peace and stability.  Allow me to list just a few headlines which, I strongly believe, deserve much more attention than what they got so far.  Here we go: Military Times: “5 Iran tankers sailing to Venezuela amid US

What does the Empire’s agony mean for the “Jewish state of Israel”?

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] First, let’s begin with a few (apparently unrelated) recent news items: The latest US PR disaster in Venezuela shows that the AngloZionist Empire truly is agonizing.  While this is hardly the first that that a US “special operation” goes down in an embarrassing  failure, but even by US standards this latest disaster in Venezuela is painfully humiliating.  Even more humiliating are the reports

The Saker interviews Michael Hudson about the current economic crisis

Dear friends, I have always held Michael Hudson in the greatest esteem.  Not only do I consider him my favorite US economist out there, I also know that he is a kind human being.  He manifested this kindness again when he agreed to reply to some very basic questions which a non-economist like myself would ask.  I am deeply grateful to Michael for taking the time to reply to them!

Is there a 6th column trying to subvert Russia?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] For those of us who followed the Russian Internet there is a highly visible phenomenon taking place which is quite startling: there are a lot of anti-Putin videos posted on YouTube or its Russian equivalents. Not only that, but a flurry of channels has recently appeared which seem to have made bashing Putin or Mishustin their full-time job.  Of course, there have

The AngloZionists are launching a strategic PSYOP against China

[This column was written for the Unz Review] Maybe the “the Russians did it” narrative is getting stale.  Or maybe the leaders of the Empire have finally figured out that China is even more dangerous to the Empire than Russia.  But my personal gut feeling is simply that the AngloZionists are freaking out about the “full-spectrum” loss of face they suffered with their massive mishandling (medically and, even more so,

Will this pandemic finally mark the end of the US carrier fleet?

[This column was written for the Unz Review] Frankly, I have never considered USN carrier strike groups as a “Cold War capable” element of the US Navy.  Yes, in theory, there was the notion of forward deploying these carriers to “bring the war to the Soviets” (on the Kola Peninsula) before they could flush their subs and aircraft through the GUIK gap and into the Atlantic.  In theory, it should

Bernie Sanders, the ultimate fake Socialist, now shows his true face

RT just posted an article entitled “Sanders joins Biden livestream to give full-throated ENDORSEMENT” which begins like this: Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders made a surprising appearance on former Vice President joe Biden’s livestream to give the rival for the Democrat presidential nomination an enthusiastic endorsement against President Donald Trump. Denouncing Trump as a “racist, sexist, homophobe” who “lies all the time,” Sanders announced he was now supporting Biden’s presidential bid.

NWO, globalism and US “leadership” – RIP (UPDATED!)

[this analysis has been written for the Unz Review] “And the unbelievers plotted and planned, and God too planned, and the best of planners is God” Quran, Sura Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) – 3:54 It has been pretty obvious for many years already that the AngloZionist Empire was not viable, that it had to tank sooner or later.  There were two main scenarios which were typically considered for this

This will not convince those who are already sure, but nonetheless

Dear friends, Please check out this screenshot: The gentlemen on the right is Rinat Maksiutov, General Director of the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology Vektor.  Last time I posted an interview by a US specialist, I was told that he was part of the system, a liar with a stake in lying. Fine, please look up the following to get an idea of what Vector was and is:

Saker announcement: COVID19 and the Saker Community

Dear friend of the Saker Community and beyond, I have to tell you that the COVID19 crisis has hit the Saker Community pretty hard.  So far, I know of nobody who has a confirmed COVID19 infection (2 suspected and unconfirmed), but that is not the only way that this pandemic has affected us.  A lot of us are now under house quarantine or have already lost their jobs; other are

Quick update from the Saker

Dear friends, I am rather exhausted (not COVID10-related) and I will take a couple of days off to recuperate and think about a number of issues. I will let you know all the details in a couple of days. Finally, for the next couple of days, the moderator’s decisions will be final and I will not be involved. I ask for your understanding and patience. Kind regards to all, The

Debunking clickbaits – expert: “not just a flu” and “not a bioweapon”

Joe Rogan has interviewed Michael Osterholm.  This is the Wikipedia entry under his name, and this is how Rogan introduced him on YouTube: “Michael Osterholm is an internationally recognized expert in infectious disease epidemiology. He is Regents Professor, McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair in Public Health, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public

A few recent political developments which should not go unnoticed

[This column was written for the Unz Review] The COVID19/SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is, by any measure, an immense planetary crisis which will probably change the world we live in forever.  Still, there are other issues which are maybe not quite as dramatic and important, but which deserve not to be forgotten.  Here are some of those The grand betrayal of Tulsi Gabbard: it was pretty clear to most observers that Tulsi
