So what will The Sanctioned supergroup do?

by Pepe Escobar (cross-posted with the Asia Times by special agreement with the author) Trump’s solo act can’t compete with the hard rock presidents from the electric east Those were the days, during the Cold War 1960s and 1970s, when the earth was actually ruled by rock supergroups – from Cream and Led Zeppelin to Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Welcome back my friends to the show that never

Crazy eyed coup

by Scott Humor On Saturday, the Russian Emperor attended a wedding of the Empire’s future European nobility and, as the tradition dictates, brought with him the Kuban Cossack Choir.

‘The Death of Yazdgerd’: The greatest political movie ever explains Iran’s revolution

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog I’d say it’s a pretty low bar to be the greatest political movie off all-time….

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog Sanctions left and sanctions right. Financial mostly, taxes, tariffs, visas, travel bans – confiscation of foreign assets, import and export prohibitions and limitations; and also punishing those who do not respect sanctions dished out by Trump, alias the US of A, against friends of their enemies.

by Eric Zuesse for The Saker Blog William Binney, the U.S. National Security Agency’s former technical director for global analysis, has, for the past year, been globe-trotting to investigate the actual evidence regarding the official Russiagate investigations, and he finds that the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, who is prosecuting Russia’s Government, can only accuse Russian officials, not convict any of them on at least the important charges, because conclusive evidence
