  • The Euro Without German Industry

    By Michael Hudson and posted with permission. 

    The reaction to the sabotage of three of the four Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in four places on Monday, September 26, has focused on speculations about who did it and whether NATO will make a serious attempt to discover the answer. Yet instead of panic, there has…

  • Putin Heaps Burning Coals on the heads of the west.

    I’m listening to Putin’s speech live on RT.

    Here is a stream on Youtube but it is a very unfriendly stream.  It is however something to listen to, if you cannot get RT.

    President Vladimir Putin’s remarks at the ceremony of signing treaties on admitting the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions to Russia following the referendums…

    Good afternoon.

    I was hoping to see you in person and to talk more closely but, unfortunately,…

  • Stop Children, what’s that sound ..

    Oh boy, is the fat lady beginning to sing?

    Tomorrow Putin will accept the new Russian territories and by all accounts, he is going to make a major speech.  Putin’s international moves are not always visible.  We see them afterward.  Yet, this morning the Kremlin spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, announced:
    “Peskov also states Putin will hold SERIES of…

  • Negronis and the Aperol Spritz; it’s show time

    By Pepe Escobar and first posted at Strategic Culture

    Grab the Negronis and the Aperol Spritz; it’s show time.

    It’s tempting to interpret the Italian electoral results this past Sunday as voters merrily hurling a bowl of lush papardelle with wild boar ragu over the collective bland faces of the toxic unelected Euro-oligarchy sitting in Brussels.


  • Germany and EU have been handed a declaration of war

    By Pepe Escobar: his very first posting at PressTV

    The sabotage of the Nord Stream (NS) and Nord Stream 2 (NS2) pipelines in the Baltic Sea has ominously propelled ‘Disaster Capitalism’ to a whole new, toxic level.

    This episode of Hybrid Industrial/Commercial War, in the form of a terror attack against energy infrastructure in international waters signals the…

  • Means, Motive, Opportunity?: NS I and II

    How about Nord Stream I and II?  I have no idea. Consensus in the alternative media is the US did the sabotage, and thereby ‘declared war’ on Europe.  There of course is no reason for Russia to sabotage the lines, because they can simply close everything down.

  • Dumber Than the Average Human

    By Larry Romanoff and posted with the author’s permission


    For background, the Boston school system had for many years grappled with the problem of how to assign students to Boston’s public schools that could both let children attend one of the few good schools in the system while also finding one close to their homes. They…

  • UNGA: Latin America

    The Central and South Americas were not quiet at this past UNGA and this is perhaps the most striking feature, the number of countries openly speaking out against the hegemon.  Following is a list of statements, drawn together by Ben Norton on his Twitter.

    Colombia’s first ever left-wing President Gustavo Petro gave a historic UN…
