On Thursday night over fifty Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from U.S. Navy ships in the Mediterranean against a Syrian base allegedly used by the Damascus government jets that bombed the town of Khan Sheikhoun, held by Al-Qaeda and allied jihadist groups, where some sort of poisonous agent is said to have killed scores of civilians earlier this week.Read More
The times they are a'changin at the reforming Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), the U.S. government-funded umbrella organization for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the Voice of America (VOA) and other American taxpayer funded media, who freely concede their inferiority to Russia's supposedly awesome propaganda machine which some spooks claim helped to elect Donald Trump. But are the neolibcons deeply entrenched at these taxpayer-funded institutions who use the tax monies collected from nearly 63 million deplorable Americans to troll and smear President Trump (including calling DJT a Russian agent) ready for the coming shake up?
That's a question we're posing to current RFE/RL employees and former BBG board of governors 'information warfare' expert Matthew Armstrong, when the kind of editorializing they support starts hitting a newly elected President AND supporters of his America First and detente with Russia agenda as 'collateral damage'. Are they prepared for the 'cold civil war' between Trump and the Cold War 2 waging Deep State also extending into a struggle between Trump's political appointees and the talking heads and bureaucrats of America's state-funded media arms? Particularly when certain RFE/RL employees are not only incompetent in their areas of supposed expertise, but also propagandize on behalf of vicious, human rights abusing jihadists imposing sharia law in Syria (so long as the jihadis claim not to be Al-Qaeda or ISIS)?Read More
The Russians have had enough of Washington's threats to attack Syrian Arab Army units -- while claiming they will avoid deliberately striking Russian forces stationed in the country. The Russian Ministry of Defense sent out Major General Igor Konashenkov on Thursday, October 6, 2016 to warn the 'hotheads' of the CIA and Pentagon, who have previously been accused by Moscow's Foreign Ministry of undermining peace talks between Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry, of several facts...Read More
While the U.S. media focused on the tragic police killings in Dallas and the European press the Euro2016 matches and NATO's summit in Warsaw, some subtle unofficial diplomacy was underway last week in Moscow.
Carter Page, an adviser to the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign and a former manager in the Moscow offices of Merrill Lynch, gave a speech at the New Economic School in the Russian capital. To the consternation of The Washington Post, Page called for dialogue and mutual respect rather than continued Cold War 2.0 confrontation with RussiaRead More
"Germany has asked Russia for help in expelling NATO. Germany wants Russia to support its struggle for independence from the US and NATO occupation." Take a look at this mouth-dropping Q&A from editors at The Saker.Read More
Don't tell the neocons or U.S. Naval War College #NeverTrump-ers, but presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump and Democratic socialist challenger Bernie Sanders are the choice of a reluctant plurality of America's surveyed men and women in military uniform...Read More
Southfront analysis as well as pro-Kurdish sources believe the Turkish army is preparing to invade northern Syria as early as this weekend, by conducting mine-sweeping operations on the Syrian side of the border.Read More
Up until now the public has had little more than speculation as to why Turkey chose to endanger their country by blatantly shooting down a Russian fighter jet that at most, had crossed into Turkish airspace for less than 17 seconds. Of course, members of Rogue Money have considered quite a few reasons why this act was done, especially after Turkey had signed onto a de-confrontation agreement to pursue solutions for incidental contacts like this one, that may have included the accidential flying over sovereign airspace.But over the weekend Dr. Paul Craig Roberts provided a little more insight into the psychopathy of Erdogan in an interview with King World News, and outlined three probable scenarios as to why Turkey would challenge Russia in the escalating war against ISIS.Read More
