World Ready for US Collapse as Empire Hemorrhages Gold, Oil and Credibility

World Ready for US Collapse as Empire Hemorrhages Gold, Oil and Credibility by Dmitry Orlov for Russia-Insider Some ironies are just too precious to pass by. The 2016 US presidential elections gave us Donald Trump, a reality TV star whose famous tag line from his show “The Apprentice” was “You are fired!” Focus on this tag line; it is all that is important to this story. Some Trump Derangement Disorder sufferers might disagree. This is because they are laboring under certain misapprehensions: that the US is a democracy; or that…

What Putin and Pompeo did not talk about

What Putin and Pompeo did not talk about: Pepe Escobar via The Saker Russia is uneasy over the destabilization of Tehran, and on other hotspots the powers’ positions are clear.

Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov did his best to smooth the utterly intractable, admitting there was “no breakthrough yet” during the talks but at least the US…

Trump Should Stick To His Original Foreign Policy Instincts On Venezuela

Trump Should Stick To His Original Foreign Policy Instincts On Venezuela By Sumantra Maitra for The Federalist When the bugle calls, Peter Hitchens once wrote, the conservative instinct is to rally around the tattered banner. Nowhere was it truer than the last few days, with Venezuela teetering on the brink of civil war. For all practical purposes, Juan Guaido, the suave Macronist liberal whom the West recognizes as the legitimate president of the oil-rich republic, was on the way to topple the Maduro dictatorship, flanked by dissident military men. But that…

US Lectures Russia to ‘Keep Out of Western Hemisphere’

US Lectures Russia to ‘Keep Out of Western Hemisphere’ by Robert Bridge via Russia-Insider With US military assets scattered to the four corners of the planet, and entrenched on Russia’s border, Washington believes the world is a playground that no other nation may enter. This is arrogance at its finest. Imagine how less complicated life would be if American statesmen only took the time to consult a world map before speaking publicly on global events. Had John Bolton, for example, performed this simple exercise he would have avoided appearing like…

Swamp Thang

Swamp Thang by James Howard Kunstler Chuck and Nancy coming onto the TV audience as “Mommy and Daddy” Tuesday night was a nice gag, putting the “nanny” into the Nanny State, which is getting more and more like the Tranny State — the Deep State in drag. Will the supply of “undocumented” nannies be cut off to the Creative Classniks of Brooklyn and Pacific Heights? That is the question. Not this silly-ass debate over The Wall. Who is going to watch the kids while we’re out enjoying the pickled squid…
