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”

Sleepy Joe’s Ukraine Hypocrisy Is Truly Beyond Measure

How stupid does this have to get? We are referring to Sleepy Joe’s chastisement of Vlad Putin regarding his intervention in the breakaway republics of the Donbas: “Who in the Lord’s name does Putin think gives him the right to declare new so-called countries on territory that belonged to his neighbors?” Biden had questioned in … Continue reading “Sleepy Joe’s Ukraine Hypocrisy Is Truly Beyond Measure”

George Kennan Warned NATO Expansion Would Lead to This

We are now deep into the weeds with respect to Ukraine. So deep, in fact, that the underlying architecture of the situation doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in the hot place of getting even a fleeting mention in the 24/7 war news cycle. So let’s call a spade a spade. The current fraught situation has … Continue reading “George Kennan Warned NATO Expansion Would Lead to This”

We Are Not Useful Idiots!

Honest injun. We’re not useful idiots here at Contra Corner! We do think, however, that the entire Ukrainian crisis is a Washington-confected con job. And we came to that conclusion without relying on a single scrap of information peddled by Russki propagandists appearing on Strategic Culture Foundation or Zero Hedge. Actually, we thought it up … Continue reading “We Are Not Useful Idiots!”

Ukraine Pushes Back Against American Hawks

It looks like we have plunged so deeply into the theater of the absurd that we now have a case of “Albania don’t want the ball!”. Our reference, of course, is to the apocryphal football story about a coach repeatedly signaling a play from the sidelines, only to have the quarterback keep breaking huddle while … Continue reading “Ukraine Pushes Back Against American Hawks”

Sleepy Joe’s Wimpy Tail Wags the Dog of War

This is getting downright pathetic. If you want the smoking gun proof that ol’ Vlad Putin actually didn’t brandish over these past few weeks of Washington bellicosity about the sanctity of Ukraine’s borders, well, here it tis: Sleepy Joe’s plummeting approval ratings: That’s right. It has nothing to do with the annexation of Crimea, Russian … Continue reading “Sleepy Joe’s Wimpy Tail Wags the Dog of War”

The Specter of World War III – Handiwork of Washington’s Busy-Bodies and Hegemonists

One of the worst aspects of the internet enabled 24/7 news cycle is the giant memory hole embedded within it. That is to say, if the latest information content is “breaking news”, no matter how incidental, trivial, misleading or flat-out untruthful, it makes the cut. But more often than not, that’s all she wrote. Context … Continue reading “The Specter of World War III – Handiwork of Washington’s Busy-Bodies and Hegemonists”
