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”

Biden’s Sanctions on Russia Will Cause Havoc in Western Markets

What a tangled web these war-loving fools spin. We are referring, of course, to Washington’s belated attempts to ease or remove sanctions against oil producers Venezuela and Iran. That’s so it can crank up the sanctions against the new villain of the month, Russia, without monkey-hammering American consumers with $7 gasoline prices. Then again, why … Continue reading “Biden’s Sanctions on Russia Will Cause Havoc in Western Markets”

The War From TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome)

Hear us out here. The Donald himself is the approximate casus belli of the World War III prelude now raging in Ukraine, reminding us once again that sometimes history morphs in the strangest ways. But the truth is, Trump single-handed generated such a deep, intense and irrational wave of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) in the … Continue reading “The War From TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome)”

The Eazy-Peazy Ukrainian Alternative – Partition

A wise observer once cautioned about the danger of overthinking matters. That is, sometimes per Occam’s Razor the right answer is the most direct, obvious and simple one; and that certainly applies in spades to the unfathomable mystery of how Washington got itself to the brink of war with the world’s only nuclear power with … Continue reading “The Eazy-Peazy Ukrainian Alternative – Partition”

The Land Where History Died

In light of the grotesquely one-sided Ukrainian war news on the MSM, it can be well and truly said that America circa February 2022 has become the land where history died. From the sophomoric coverage of CNN and NBC, for instance, you would think that Ukraine’s borders have been universally agreed upon by one and … Continue reading “The Land Where History Died”
