Saker Analyses and Interviews

When exactly did the AngloZionist Empire collapse?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] I remember one evening in distant 1991, I was sitting with a few friends in the SAIS cafeteria discussing the future of the United States with a few very smart students, including a Pakistani Army Colonel, a US captain who served on aircraft carriers and a Spanish diplomat: we all agreed that “the system” was perfect, so to speak, and that the

Short Armenia vs Azerbaijan war update

As was predicted by many, in spite of the agreement signed in Moscow, thing on the ground in the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan  have escalated: the Armenians have claimed that Azeri drones have attacked Armenian tactical ballistic missiles on Armenian soil and the Azeris have confirmed this, saying that this was both a warning and a preemptive attack to protect Azeri civilians. Bottom line is this: Azerbaijan has now

Can and should Russia stop the war in the Caucasus?

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] This war is officially a war between Azerbaijan and the (unrecognized) Republic of Nagorno Karabakh (RNK) aka “Republic of Artsakh” (ROA) which I shall refer to simply as Nagorno Karabakh or “NK”. As is often the case, the reality is much more complicated. For one thing, Erdogan’s Turkey has been deeply involved since Day 1 (and, really, even much before that) while

Russian options in the Karabakh conflict

With the eyes of most people locked on the debate between Trump and Biden, the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh (NK) has received relatively little attention in the West.  Yet, this is a potentially very dangerous situation.  Just think about this: the Armenians are accusing the Turks of shooting down an Armenian Su-25 over Armenia (not NK!).  If that is true, then some would say that this is

The world has gone absolutely insane!

[this column was written for the Unz Review] We all know that we are living in crazy, and dangerous, times, yet I can’t help being awed at what the imperial propaganda machine (aka the legacy ziomedia) is trying to make us all swallow. The list of truly batshit crazy stuff we are being told to believe is now very long, and today I just want to pick on a few

We have lost a real giant (Stephen F. Cohen has died)!

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God (Holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew 5:9) Dear friends, It is with immense sadness that I have to report that Stephen F. Cohen passed away yesterday in his home in Manhattan at the age of 81. There are a few media outlets who have already reported this.  Most of them discuss Stephen F. Cohen’s political ideas and

Reconsidering the Presidential Election

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] In early July I wrote a piece entitled “Does the next Presidential election even matter?” in which I made the case that voting in the next election to choose who will be the next puppet in the White House will be tantamount to voting for a new captain while the Titanic is sinking. I gave three specific reasons why I thought that

Solari Report quarterly interview with The Saker

Dear friends, Here is the latest installment of my quarterly conversations with Catherine Austin Fitts. This one was recorded on August 11th. You can listen to the interview on the original Solari Report page: The Emerging Multipolar World – Spotlight on Russia with the Saker Listen or download the interview here: https://audio.solari.com/sr20200820/sr20200820_InterviewHQ.mp3

Russians are the dumbest idiots on the planet!

Russians are dumb.  Hopelessly stupid.  They are amateurs of the worst kind.  Ignoramuses on steroids.  Why? Well, for one, their so-called super-dooper biowarfare agent “Novichok” seems unable to kill anybody.  The Russians must have realized that.  This is why, when they tried to kill Skripal (after freeing him from jail) they put that Novichok thing all over the place:  on the bench near Salisbury, on Skripal’s door handle, even in

Will Hillary and the Dems get the civil war they are trying to provoke?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] If you have not already seen this, check out this video of Hillary Clinton stating that, quote, “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances“: “Any” means “any”.  That would include the (admittedly hypothetical) case of Trump clearly winning in by landslide.  Again, “any” means “any”. The direct implications of that is that the Dems should re-take the White House by any

President Putin says that Russia will help Belarus (UPDATED!)

President Putin just gave an important interview to the Russian journalist Sergei Brilev in which he indicated that Russia and Belarus are allies in the CSTO Russia and Belarus are also Union states Russia has obligations towards Belarus Lukashenko has invoked these obligations Putin has agreed to create a “security reserve force” which is ready to intervene in Belarus in case of danger for the Belarusian state and sovereignty Putin

Might Belarus become the next Syria?

Okay, I admit it, the title is rather hyperbolic :-)  But here is what I am trying to say: there are signs that Russia is intervening in the Belarusian crisis (finally!) First and foremost, we can see a truly radical change in Lukashenko’s policies: if his initial instinct was to unleash a brutal repression of both the violent rioters and the peaceful demonstrators, now he has made a 180 and

Will Belarus become the next Banderastan?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] The situation in Belarus is evolving very rapidly, and not for the better, to say the least.  A lot has been going on, but here is a summary of what are the most crucial developments in my opinion: Last Sunday was a major success for the Belarusian opposition: huge crowds took to the streets of several Belarusian cities and, in most cases,

European leaders bring flowers to honor a Belarusian terrorist (+important development!)

Check out this video of diplomats of the EU (and a few others) laying flowers on the location where a Belarusian recently died: This action is truly breathtaking in its hypocrisy and total delusion. Why? Well, for one thing, these guys don’t realize that their reputation has been roadkill ever since they “guaranteed” the deal between Ianukovich and the Urkonazis, a deal which, as we all know was broken the

A quick update on Belarus

A quick update on the events in Belarus: To make a long story short, two major developments have happened: My guess is that by now Lukashenko has now figured (again) that the West wants him dead AND he has figured out that he has been conned by the Ukie SBU and, most likely, elements inside his own KGB. The Belarusian security forces (riot police and KGB) have ruthlessly cracked down

Putin and Russia are facing a very serious crisis in Belarus

[this analysis was written for the Unz review] Some of my longtime readers might have noticed that I rarely (if ever!) wrote about Belarus or President Lukashenko.  As always with the blog, there always is a reason for why I do mention something and no less a reason why I do not mention something.  In the case of Belarus or Lukashenko, my reason for not writing about them was the

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

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
