Perpetual Debt, Perpetual War

It’s always useful to visit the museum in order to offset the recency bias that distorts perceptions of current realities. In the great scheme of things, the picture below is admittedly not that ancient – from just 42 years ago. But it is nevertheless a museum piece because it pertains to a matter that has … Continue reading “Perpetual Debt, Perpetual War”

The Washington GOP: War-Besotted Sucklers on the Public Teat

What’s wrong with these people?! We are referring, of course, to Mitch McConnell & Co’s ostentatious visit to Kiev this weekend. With the sad-sack Senate Republican leadership in tow, the bejowled political hack who leads the ostensible "opposition" party provided still another unwarranted boost to the dangerous megalomaniac pictured at the center of the photo … Continue reading “The Washington GOP: War-Besotted Sucklers on the Public Teat”

Sleepy Joe’s $33 Billion Abomination

Donald Trump has been well relegated to the sidelines of America’s political debate, but the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) lives on, more virulent than ever. The latter is what’s behind Washington’s descent into the current mindless Ukraine war fever – an outbreak of irrationality that makes even the post-9/11 hysteria seem like an orderly discourse. … Continue reading “Sleepy Joe’s $33 Billion Abomination”

NATO Put Ukraine on the Path to Partition

(read part 1) The gist of our two-part series is this: Unlike Ford automobiles, Ukraine was not "Built to Last!" The current CIA director, William J Burns, actually recognized the eventual crackup of Ukraine back in 2008, when he served as U.S. ambassador to Russia. After Ukraine’s NATO aspirations were announced at that year’s Bucharest … Continue reading “NATO Put Ukraine on the Path to Partition”

In Praise of Partition

Sometimes a few words are worth a thousand pictures – at least when it comes to Ukraine. Here’s one of them: The Ukrainian leader said that his country hadn’t been willing to cede territory from the beginning. "Had we been willing to give up our territory, there would have been no war," Zelensky said. So … Continue reading “In Praise of Partition”

The Warfare State’s Infinitely Mendacious Echo Chamber

It all starts with the number $813 billion, the Biden national defense budget for FY 2023. That number is so hideously – nay, grotesquely – large that it is the inherent fount of the war fevers, Russophobia and sweeping disinformation that now gushes from the Washington war machine and its auxiliaries in the mainstream media. … Continue reading “The Warfare State’s Infinitely Mendacious Echo Chamber”

Washington Is Delirious With War Fever – For No Reason of Homeland Security

Economic, social and political dangers abound. That’s because Washington and its subservient mainstream media are delirious with war fever like at no time in the last seven decades. The resulting reckless pursuit of an unhinged Sanctions War against Russia poses a dire threat to the global economy and domestic prosperity and does so for no … Continue reading “Washington Is Delirious With War Fever – For No Reason of Homeland Security”

Washington’s Sanctions War – A Futile Attempt To Control the World Economy

Republicans are a pretty pathetic lot. They are always yapping about the socialist dangers posed by the Dem spenders, but actually wouldn’t recognize actual socialism if it whacked them across the forehead. That is to say, in recent days they have been hooping and hollering in favor of Washington’s Sanctions War on Russia, but that’s … Continue reading “Washington’s Sanctions War – A Futile Attempt To Control the World Economy”

Pearl Harbor My Eye!

We were already getting sick and tired of this Zelensky clown, but the sheer chutzpah of comparing Ukraine’s predicament with Pearl Harbor or 9/11 is just fricking outrageous. To paraphrase Senator Lloyd Bensten’s famous retort to Dan Quayle in the 1992 VP debate: We knew the United States of America and Ukraine isn’t any United … Continue reading “Pearl Harbor My Eye!”

Washington’s Hawks Are About To Wreck Global Commerce

We did get that right. At an intense seven-hour session in Rome, Biden’s national security advisor, Jake Sullivan, told the Chinese in no uncertain terms they are next in line for the sanctions hit parade: Jake Sullivan told CNN the US had been “communicating directly, privately to Beijing that there will absolutely be consequences for … Continue reading “Washington’s Hawks Are About To Wreck Global Commerce”
