Bolivia – A Color Revolution – or a New Surge for Latin American Independence?

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog Like Túpac Katari, indigenous Aymara leader more than 200 years ago, confronting the Spaniards, Evo Morales was betrayed and ‘dismembered’ by his own people, recruited and paid by the agents of the most destructive, nefarious and murderous dark elite that governs and has governed for over two hundred years our planet, the United States of America. With their worthless fiat-Ponzi-pyramid money, the made-out-of-thin-air

Adam Schiff Whistleblower Impeachment Based on a Tweet from Poland?

by George Eliason for The Saker Blog Look at the date in the above screen-shot. Read the summary again after you pick yourself up from off the floor. Adam Schiff and the Democratic Party are basing an impeachment of the President of the United States on…wait for it….a tweet? This particular tweet happened one day after the phone call between Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelenskiy. So, quick question- how does

Some questions concerning the putsch in Bolivia

by Paul Schmutz Schaller for The Saker Blog Preliminary note Of course, I have read the Saker’s article „A few short comments about the Fascist coup in Bolivia“, posted on November 12, as well as most of the comments. However, the predominant assessment did not satisfy me. Considering that my knowledge of the situation in South America is quite rudimentary and that my ideas were not clear enough, I was

Donald Trump’s Syrian crossroads: Americans will be driven out by the “dehkan farmers»

Konstantin Sivkov, Deputy President of the Russian Academy of Sciences for information policy, Doctor of Military Sciences Translated by Scott Humor https://www.vpk-news.ru/articles/53576   The American withdrawal from Syria is inevitable. It will proceed voluntary with minimal reputational, material, and human losses or it will be forced by the pressure of irregular armed formations. In the latter case, it will be perceived as a shameful military defeat with significant losses in

Bill Taylor’s Private War with Donald Trump Ukraine and Russia

by George Eliason for The Saker Blog John Solomon of the Hill just penned a seminal article for people who want to understand how widespread the hate for Donald Trump is inside the State Department. If it was one or two activist diplomats, the problem would be easy to remedy. Unfortunately, Ambassador Yovanovitch is a symptom of a much greater problem that spread like cancer inside the agency. With over

The Independent Ukraine’s painful journey through the five stages of grief

[this article was written for the Unz Review] In my July 25th article “Zelenskii’s dilemma” I pointed out the fundamental asymmetry of the Ukrainian power configuration following Zelenskii’s crushing victory over Poroshenko: while a vast majority of the Ukrainian people clearly voted to stop the war and restore some kind of peace to the Ukraine, the real levers of power in the post-Maidan Banderastan are all held by all sorts

Hezbollah’s Unchartered Frontier Turning Boggy:

by Ghassan Kadi for The Saker Blog Four weeks on, the street protestors in Lebanon are not showing any signs of relenting; and neither is the government. An activist has been killed by a Lebanese Army bullet during an attempt to close the southern coastal highway that links Beirut with Saida. This incident occurred almost 24 hours after a televised interview of President Aoun in which he said that, if

A few short comments about the Fascist coup in Bolivia

These are the folks who just came to power: They are all members of some kind of Fascist “Christian” cult. This is what these folks did with those who dare oppose them: Trump loves this.  He called it a “significant moment for democracy in the Western Hemisphere” and then he proceeded to threaten two more Latin American states by saying “these events send a strong signal to the illegitimate regimes

Butina Reflection

by William Spencer for the Saker Blog Hi, I am writing this with a few men and women in mind I corresponded with a few months ago overseas, but I’d like to also share this with a wider audience. I am looking for an opportunity to connect with people in far away places even discover a plan that would allow me to live and work among them in their country,

QE paid for a foreign buying spree: developing countries hurt the most

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog Of course, developing countries were not hurt by the subprime crisis because they were not involved – the idiocy, usury, malfeasance and willful blindness which caused the subprime housing and banking crises were purely a Western invention. This is why in the first years after 2009 developing markets produced stable growth – remember in 2010 when Brazil had “arrived”? Those days seem long

Kadyrov about the Russian soldier who refused to denounce Christianity when captured by the jihadists

Translated by Leo. Source: https://cont.ws/@Handusenko/1499952 November 10, 2019 – Everyone knows about the feat of Yevgeny Rodionov. In May 1996, a Russian soldier from the Penza region near the Chechen village of Bamut was captured by militants of the field commander Ruslan Khaikhoroyev. Despite fear of punishment, he refused to betray the Orthodox faith, to remove the Christian cross from his chest. Something for which he paid the price with

Released Lula in for greatest fight of his life
