Why Did Rand Paul Delay Washington’s $40 Billion Ukraine Giveaway?

Even by Washington standards, the Biden Administration’s recent request for $33 billion for military aid to Ukraine was shocking. Surely a coalition of antiwar progressives and budget-hawk Republicans would oppose the dangerous and expensive involvement of the US in the Russia/Ukraine conflict? No! Not only did Congress not object: they added nearly seven billion MORE … Continue reading “Why Did Rand Paul Delay Washington’s $40 Billion Ukraine Giveaway?”

CIA Admits Feeding Americans False Info About Ukraine

Late last year, a Gallup poll showed that Americans’ trust in the mainstream media has fallen to its second lowest level on record. Only seven percent of Americans responded that they have a “great deal” of trust in the media. That loss of trust has been well-earned by the mainstream media, and it explains the … Continue reading “CIA Admits Feeding Americans False Info About Ukraine”

Biden’s Disastrous European Tour

Previewing President Biden’s trip to Europe last week, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that, “the president is traveling to Europe to make sure we stay united.” That sure didn’t go as planned. This may have been the most disastrous – and dangerous – Presidential overseas trip ever. The US and its NATO allies … Continue reading “Biden’s Disastrous European Tour”

Is Washington Fighting Russia Down to the Last Ukrainian?

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine moves past its third week, there are slight hopes that negotiations between the two sides may soon produce a ceasefire. But with the shrill warmongering talk in Washington, it almost seems like the US government would hate to see that happen.

We also heard that Russia is evacuating its embassy in Kiev for fear of a US-backed provocation in eastern Ukraine that may lead to a Russian military response. We are in “uncharted territory” the media … Continue reading “Ukraine Crisis: A Nightmare Caused by US Interventionism”

Washington’s Bi-Partisan Russia-Bashers Are Determined To Start a War

Russia-bashing is a bi-partisan activity in Washington. Both parties think it makes them look “tough” and “pro-America.” But while Republican and Democrat politicians continue to one-up each other on “risk-free” threats to Russia, they are increasingly risking a devastating nuclear war. It’s all fun and games until the missiles start flying. And in this case … Continue reading “Washington’s Bi-Partisan Russia-Bashers Are Determined To Start a War”

Biden’s ‘Democracy Summit’ Is a Joke

On December 9-10 President Biden will preside over an online “Summit for Democracy,” which claims it will “bring together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to tackle the greatest threats faced by democracies today through collective action.” What a joke. This is … Continue reading “Biden’s ‘Democracy Summit’ Is a Joke”

Twenty Years On, We’ve Learned Nothing From 9/11

Nothing upset the Washington Beltway elites more than when in a 2007 presidential debate I pointed out the truth about the 9/11 attacks: they attacked us because we’ve been in the Middle East, sanctioning and bombing the civilian population, for decades. The 9/11 attackers were not motivated to commit suicide terrorism on the Twin Towers … Continue reading “Twenty Years On, We’ve Learned Nothing From 9/11”
