Steven Mnuchin. Familiarize yourself with this name. You will hear it often, because as Trump’s pick for Treasury Secretary, Mnuchin will most likely play a key role in « making America great again ».A brief bio of our brave, new head of the Treasury:
Well, talk about cutting through the red tape. Just hours after RI republished a letter from top alternative media columnist Paul Craig Roberts asking President Putin for a Russian passport, the Russian president’s press spokesman has responded:
Now that the British have voted to secede from the European Union and America has chosen a president who has never before held public office, the French appear to be following suit.In Sunday’s runoff to choose a candidate to face Marine Le Pen of the National Front in next spring’s presidential election, the center-right Republicans chose Francois Fillon in a landslide.While Fillon sees Margaret Thatcher as a role model in fiscal policy, he is a socially conservative Catholic who supports family values and wants to confront Islamist extremism, control immigration, restore France’s historic identity, and end sanctions on Russia.“Russia poses no threat to the West,” says Fillon. But if not, the question arises, why NATO? Why are U.S. troops in Europe?
Like the sinister James Bond villain that he is and always will be, Russian President Vladimir Putin is always on the lookout for random objects and abstract concepts to « weaponize ».
As the Russian-backed Syrian army continues making rapid progress in the liberation of Aleppo from western-backed radical jihadis, the line coming out of the US State Department is turning from misrepresentation and denial to outright lies.John Kirby is telling reporters that the people of Aleppo are being « slaughtered » by the Syrian army, NOT the jihadi terrorists, and the Syrian army is doing nothing to help them.Video reports from the front lines show what is really happening – relieved civilians emerging to tell stories of a life of hell under « moderate rebel » occupation and singing the praises of their Syrian army liberators.But Kirby admitted he’s « not on the ground » in Syria. Then maybe he should stop preaching lying BS from the podium?
Mamma mia! Why in God’s name were Italian peasants freezing to death outside Stalingrad?They should have been home eating pasta in Palermo, or veal in Venice, during that bitter winter of 1942–43. Instead, they were being trampled into the snow by waves of Soviet tanks that had materialized like demons from the freezing fogs of the vast Russian steppe.Some Italian soldiers fought, and others fled. Many were killed, and those that weren’t disappeared into the Soviet gulag prison camps. Nearly half of the Italians who fought in Russia never made it home.But what were they doing in Russia in the first place?
A Russian businessman has created a LinkedIn analogue and launched it immediately after the well-known site was blocked in Russia. Called ‘Link You’, the site allows you to search for people of a particular occupation, and communicate with them. The new social network still does not have a mobile app, only a desktop version. Experts, however, believe the Russian equivalent will not succeed in replicating the success LinkedIn enjoys.
Donald Trump, commenting on the passing of Fidel Castro, branded him a mere “dictator”. Whatever the long-lasting results (and mistakes) of the Cuban experiment, History has already de facto recognized Fidel as one of the great revolutionary leaders of the modern – and post-modern – era.Trump – historical irony obliges – also has all but christened the groundswell of anger that delivered him the White House as a “revolution” – led by, and in the name of, white, non-college educated, blue collar US masses.
In 2014, the Russian economy faced two major setbacks: international economic sanctionsfollowing Russia’s annexation of Crimea, and a collapse in global oil prices. At the time, crude oil alone represented more than a third of Russian exports by value. The Russian economy has no doubt seen better days, but defence spending has until now largely been protected from the recent economic downturn.
A fraught arms race, involving ballistic missiles, helicopter gunships, multiple rocket systems and even nuclear material smuggling, has escalated to the brink of war this year.The contenders: Armenia and Azerbaijan, two states with populations roughly equivalent to those of Connecticut and New Jersey, respectively. And Moscow is providing most of the advanced weaponry to both sides.
The White Helmets, founded to rescue victims trapped under the rubble of buildings destroyed by Syrian and Russian bombing, have become a favorite source for Western news media covering a story on Russian-Syrian bombing. Portrayed as humanitarian heroes for over the past year and even nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize last summer, the White Helmets have been accorded unquestioned credibility by journalists covering the Syrian crisis.
The two Chechen wars left large scars on Grozny. In 2003 the UN Commission came to Grozny and, if we are to believe the local news, it declared Chechnya’s capital the world’s most devastated city since the Second World War.
No one outside of a few obsessed cranks would’ve noticed it if the Washington Posthadn’t given it front page prominence last week: a formerly obscure web site, propornot.com
, which purports to identify a “Russian active measures” campaign with some very specific goals in mind As Post “reporter” Craig Timberg put it:
“Why is the Syrian Army, against all predictions, winning the war in Syria?” In June 2014, a little known British military analyst posed this question in a controversial, yet prescient article published on openDemocracy.net entitled, Pax Syriana: neither vanquished, nor all-conquering.
A peaceful dissolution of the USSR according to the agreement between Mikhail Gorbachew and Ronald Reagan in 1988 in Reykjavik brought a new dimension of a global geopolitics in which up to 2008 Russia, as a legal successor state of the USSR, was playing an inferior role in global politics when an American Neocon concept of Pax Americana became the fundamental framework in international relations. Therefore, for instance, Boris Yeltsin’s Russia capitulated in 1995 to the American design regarding a final outcome of the USA/EU policy of the destruction of ex-Yugoslavia in November 1995 (the Dayton Agreement) followed by even worse political capitulation in the case of Washington’s Kosovo policy that became ultimately implemented in June 1999 (the Kumanovo Agreement).
The new US Administration needs people who believe in the potential of US-Russia relations and support the views of President-elect Donald Trump on the necessity to restore ties with Moscow, Carter Page, who served as an adviser to his Presidential campaign told Sputnik, commenting on the appointment of the next Secretary of State.Trump is reportedly considering two candidates for the top diplomat role in his Cabinet — former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and former presidential nominee and ex-governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney. The latter has been a vocal critic of Trump during his campaign.
And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy. »Fake news » has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump. Supposedly serious Western media outlets have highlighted the spread of hoax stories purporting to be news reports as having swayed the presidential race in Trump’s favor against his rival, Democrat career politician Hillary Clinton.One such hoax « report » was that Pope Francis had allegedly given his blessing to Trump just before the November 8 poll, which presumably prompted some American Catholics on board the Republican’s election ticket.
The one constant in Donald Trump’s foreign-policy views has been his desire to improve relations with Moscow. “There’s nothing I can think of that I’d rather do than have Russia friendly, as opposed to the way they are right now,” he said in July, a theme he has since reprised in various ways.It is no secret that Russian President Vladimir Putin favored Trump in the election. But a Putin-Trump bromance and shared business interests can only take this so far. To transform relations, Trump will have to address Russia’s deep concerns about U.S. missile defense in Europe.
One of the true heroes of the past election has got to be Alex Jones. He bet early and big on Trump, probably at first just because he simply agreed with his positions, but Jones also realized before a lot of other people that Trump had a good chance of winning, and he never wavered in his all-out campaign to get him elected.Jones’s early full court press for Trump seems also to have vaulted his company into rankings stratosphere.In this segment, he breaks down the numbers of just how far ahead he and others like him, like Drudge, are ahead of the dying, discredited, widely-reviled mainstream media.
1 – He has gutted much of the educated middle class of Turkey in his frantic persecution of all those he thinks might not be loyal to him.2 – He has sent the Turkish Army into Syria in what was first described as border defense against IS (a group he has long supported) and is now revealed (by him) to be an effort to reach central Syria and depose Bashar Assad. It appears that Russia (and perhaps the US as well) have made it clear to him that this will not be permitted.3. Through his relentless leadership purges he has so weakened the Turkish armed forces that the country is no longer a credible military partner in the NATO alliance.
