We long failed to understand the essential nature of what was going on around us. If the West had continued to behave as it began behaving in Gorbachev’s time – if it had kept all its promises, not moved NATO ever closer to our borders, not expanded its influence in our near abroad, not gotten involved in the internal affairs of our country – then it seems to me that the West would ultimately have succeeded in everything. They would have succeeded in attaining the objective they had set themselves — the objective of destroying and enslaving our country, as the West did to the former Soviet republics.

Joaquin Flores - The 19th century Baptist Particular preacher from England, Charles Spurgeon, is best known for the one-line wisdom: “A lie spreads half way around the world while the truth is putting on his shoes.” But what of half-truths, do they spread a quarter-way, or a third? Are these more like lies, or more like the truth? By now the half-truth that President Trump announced the pull-out of US forces from its activities aiding the Kurdish separatists in Syria, on Monday, for the sole purpose of distracting the whole discourse from the impeachment proceedings against the sitting president, has spread at least some portion around the world by now.

Matthew Ehret - For many years, the west has experienced an unfortunate drought of genuinely nationalist leaders. Where the concept of national sovereignty had once been considered a sacred component of a political leader’s mandate, decades of technocratic governance from above, monetarism and consumerism from below and asymmetric wars abroad has caused the word itself to be dragged through the mud of insanity. Somehow, over the years since WWII, the word “nationalism” increasingly became associated with “authoritarianism”, “fascism” and “isolationism”. If one were to be respected in polite society, to be associated with “nationalism” was political death for any sophisticated statesman.

by Javad Heirannia - Q. How do you interpret the current situation between our two countries? Where is this going? A. I believe that President Donald Trump and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei are playing President Emmanuel Macron for the Deep State fool that he is.

British Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn thinks he can get elected prime minister by promising to open the UK’s border to all comers and to house them by seizing houses and office blocks. This, of course, means a Camp of the Saints moment for Great Britain. So many Brits are so far gone that Corbyn thinks this is a winning platform. The current French president and German chancellor, as well as the European Union bosses, hold the same view. There is to be no Europe. Only Hungary, Italy, and Poland dissent and insist on remaining Hungarian, Polish, and Italian.

Hong Kong is losing to Mainland China. Its poverty rates are high, it suffers from corruption and savage capitalism. It is now the most expensive city on earth. People are frustrated, but paradoxically, they are blaming socialist Beijing for their problems, instead of the legacy of British colonialism. ‘Across the line’, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Beijing, Xiang and other cities are leaving Hong Kong behind in almost all fields.

Feminism has not liberated women. It has liberated women from woman’s role. The kind of stable committed relationships that men and women formerly had are difficult to find today except in the oldest generation. As The Saker recently wrote, we are experiencing “the gradual irrelevance of an entire civilization,” one that has been emptied of its history, foundational purpose, integrity, spirituality, and moral conscience. It is doubtful after decades of anti-male propaganda that the relationship between men and women can be restored. Thus has the family been undermined. White ethnicities are disappearing from earth as the birth rate is less than the death rate, and 19-year old women are having their tubes tied.

EIR has released a Special report titled “‘CO2 Reduction’ Is a Mass Murder Policy: Designed by Wall Street and the City of London.” The dossier, which includes Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s “International Call to Youth: The Age of Reason Is in the Stars!” is intended for mass publication and circulation to provide full exposure of the “green finance” mobilization of a virtual new Children’s Crusade in the service of drastic reduction of human population. The full web content of this report is available at https://larouchepub.com/2019co2.

A Gantz-led government will possess the needed political legitimacy, popular mandate and strategic tools to achieve what Netanyahu couldn’t: a war on Gaza, and annexation of the West Bank. Experience has taught Palestinians not to pay heed to Israeli elections. But to every rule there is an exception.

QUESTION: You can start with making the case about why this could not come from the Houthis.
SECRETARY POMPEO: Yeah. So there’s – it didn’t come from the Houthis. I would begin by this, and I’ll certainly address that. It doesn’t matter. This was an Iranian attack. It’s not the case that you can subcontract out the devastation of five percent of the world’s global energy supply and think that you can absolve yourself of responsibilities. So, I’d say that from the beginning.

Tony Cartalucci - Huge blazes were reported at two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia owned by Aramco. While Saudi authorities refused to assign blame, media outlets like the BBC immediately began insinuating either Yemen’s Houthis or Iran were responsible. The BBC in its article, “Saudi Arabia oil facilities ablaze after drone strikes,” would inject toward the top of its article: Iran-aligned Houthi fighters in Yemen have been blamed for previous attacks. Following an ambiguous and evidence-free description of the supposed attacks, the BBC even included an entire section titled, “Who could be behind the attacks?” dedicated to politically expedient speculation aimed ultimately at Tehran.

My friends assured me there were terrible, terrible things that would become apparent in the ensuing months. Even in the extended echo-chamber of social media, there appeared to be a seemingly pathological fear of anything even remotely resembling a balanced view. The only thing that has not changed is the Democrats` make-believe view that President Trump and the Russians were somehow trying to rig the election, when it was, in fact, they themselves who were doing that.

In 1933, Jews outside of Germany organized a global boycott of that nation`s goods, despite pleas by Jews within Germany not to do so. This video discusses that historic boycott and how it relates the current #BDS boycott movement against apartheid.

[Note: This article was sent to press just prior to the news that Donald Trump had requested the resignation of his National Security Advisor, John Bolton. Since that decision does not alter the argument made in this article, it is being presented here in its original form]. Trump supporters suffered a collective convulsion when foreign policy hawks, like John Bolton, Mike Pompeo and Elliott Abrams, were brought screeching into his administration. How could the US president be sincere about rolling back US military activities abroad, they asked, when the neocons had a hotline to his ear?
