How Syria and Ukraine Drove the Russia Hawks Insane

In Part 1 we referenced the infamous hysteria triggered in Salem Massachusetts by Betty Parris (age 9) and Abigail Williams (age 12). In 1692 their prepubescent imaginations were apparently more than capable of detecting the evil doings of witches at loose in their community; and a population hopped up with Calvinist enthusiasm for the supernatural … Continue reading “How Syria and Ukraine Drove the Russia Hawks Insane”

The New Handmaids of the Warfare State – Dems and the Liberal Media

If you want to know why America is going to hell in a fiscal hand basket, it’s because the last vestige of opposition to the Warfare State and the fiscal muggings of the military/industry/intelligence complex has utterly evaporated. We are referring, of course, to the delirious Russophobia that has overtaken the Dems and the liberal … Continue reading “The New Handmaids of the Warfare State – Dems and the Liberal Media”

The Vlad and Donald Show – A Glorious Blow for Peace!

The Vlad and Donald show in Helsinki Monday was simply brilliant and breathtaking – we’d say even a beautiful thing to behold. Between them, they left CNN’s nattering nabobs of neocon nonsense sounding like the shrieking monkeys they actually are. And that’s to say nothing of the fools they made out of the newly minted … Continue reading “The Vlad and Donald Show – A Glorious Blow for Peace!”

America First, Helsinki and Trump’s Existential Threat to the Empire

The major – perhaps only – redeeming virtue of the Donald’s ersatz campaign platform was his clear intent to seek a rapprochement with Russia, revamp America’s commitments to NATO and other cold war relics and to discard "Regime Change" as the core tenant of foreign policy. In essence, "America First" was to become the new … Continue reading “America First, Helsinki and Trump’s Existential Threat to the Empire”

It Didn’t Take a Village of Deep Staters – Just The Donald

The village idiots of Imperial Washington are having conniption fits about the Singapore summit. That’s because after 65 years of lobbing military threats and diplomatic poison pens at Pyongyang, the Donald showed the way to resolving the North Korean file in just six hours. That is, in the case of the Korean peninsula like the … Continue reading “It Didn’t Take a Village of Deep Staters – Just The Donald”

Why the Empire Never Sleeps: War Finance Made Easy, Part 3

Read Part 1 Read Part 2 Woodrow Wilson’s Folly gave rise to more than the 1,000 year flood of Nazi and Soviet totalitarianism and their state orchestrated campaigns of mass murder. It also opened the door to massive, cheap war finance. And that baleful innovation has sustained the Empire long after Hitler and Stalin met … Continue reading “Why the Empire Never Sleeps: War Finance Made Easy, Part 3”

Why the Empire Never Sleeps: The Indispensable Nation Folly, Part 2

Read Part 1 The rise of the murderous Nazi and Stalinist totalitarian regimes during the 1930s and the resulting conflagration of World War II is held to be, correctly, the defining event of the 20th century. But that truism only begs the real question. To wit, were these nightmarish scourges always latent just below the … Continue reading “Why the Empire Never Sleeps: The Indispensable Nation Folly, Part 2”

Why the Empire Never Sleeps: The Indispensable Nation Folly, Part 1

Like the case of Rome before it, the Empire is bankrupting America. The true fiscal cost is upwards of $1.0 trillion per year (counting $200 billion for veterans and debt service for wars), but there is no way to pay for it. That’s because the 78-million strong Baby Boom is in the driver’s seat of … Continue reading “Why the Empire Never Sleeps: The Indispensable Nation Folly, Part 1”

The Deep State First – Madness On Both Ends of the Acela Corridor

At his so-called Cabinet meeting this morning, the Donald basically threatened Iran with annihilation if it does what 15 other signatories to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT) do every day: Namely, increase production of industrial grade nuclear fuel (3.5%-5.0% purity) at its enrichment plant at Natanz – which, in any event, is crawling with IAEA … Continue reading “The Deep State First – Madness On Both Ends of the Acela Corridor”
