It’s Time for Some New Light on the Dark Continent

AFR65622

The last time I looked, Africa was not doing all that well. The world’s second-biggest continent is no better off than it was under European colonial rule. Some places are worse off, as the number of desperately poor in sub-Saharan Africa continues to rise. Meanwhile, the same outside forces act as pirates to steal the legacy of 1.2 billion people. And despite all the rumors…

Western Media Sleuths PROBABLY Show Dangerous Symptoms

GUA342411

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been “found out” again by the Sherlock Holmes clones inhabiting western investigative media. When I first read the story of how a mysterious document titled “No 32-04 vd” had been leaked to The Guardian by some idiot at the Kremlin, I was stupefied, I’ll admit. I even asked myself…

Morocco Gas Flows are Now Protected by the US Army

LIO3411

In June, the United States and Morocco cooperated in operation African Lion, the largest ever US military exercise conducted on Africa. Somehow, think tanks around the world did not publish analyses or complaints of American hegemony and aggression, though. Russia’s state-run RT did not launch a special series blaming America for all the problems on that continent…

Nord Stream 2 Crisis Thinking: Extended Reaganomics

RGN4542

July 26, 2021, the US State Department’s propaganda bullhorn Radio Free Europe – Radio Liberty (RFE/RLDahJTkfw had a new cause for celebration when a Gazprom pipeline broke and burst into flames in Russia. Is RFE/RL sending subliminal messages about another pipeline? It would not be the first time. The pipeline, which is located in Russia’s Perm region…

Red Storm Rising! Germany Buys Russian Gas!

NRD3412341

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is jumping up and down, screaming the US, German deal on Nord Stream 2 pipeline will ‘undermine’ US national security. It turns out he is right. That is if America’s national interests include keeping Russia and other countries from going anywhere economically. And if heaven or good reason does permit cooperation, there…

The One Thing West and East Agree On May Save Us All

JNKR3411

The very positive development of a new US/Russia cooperation to address climate change has Washington think tanks stewing in their Russophobic juices. In the coming weeks, it’s possible we will see renewed collaboration between Washington and Moscow, but not for the brilliant detente. Instead, a world in an unprecedented emergency forces the most prominent…

Bonzai! Spetsnaz Commandos Headed to Waikiki!

RFL54351

Russia’s Vladimir Putin is now planning a surprise attack on the Hawaiian Islands! After being implicated in crimes from the assassination of J.F.K. to using nerve agents on Willy Wonka, this latest news comes as no surprise. Now Japan is warning the west Russia and China are out to conquer the land of pineapple plantations and hula dancing. You know…

Vladimir Putin Gardening In the Eastern Mediterranean

PTN534512

When you imagine Russia’s Vladimir Putin, do you get a vision of a tougher and older Edward Scissorhands? Neither do I, but apparently western policy advisers see Russia’s president as some kind of mad gardener hell-bent on trimming world powers to his liking. The latest example being a Carnegie Endowment storytelling how Russia is the weed killer preventing…

The Tables Turn In Africa As Russia Masters Detente

TRAN3431

On May 25th the world celebrated Africa Day, the day to commemorate the founding of the Organization of African Unity in 1963. In the United States, the Director of the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center Rama Yade is celebrating by advising the Biden administration on how Africa is America’s biggest geopolitical opportunity. At the same moment American interests…

The Biden-Putin Summit: Don’t Let Hope Be Crushed This Time

PTNB3411

When the people who run your press run the president, the whole world is in peril. Isn’t it funny how the very essence of what makes us free, can be used to enslave us? Take the summit between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, for instance. Even a surprisingly positive and hopeful moment in history can be transformed into mental…

Does Putin, Bertelsmann, BBC, or Mickey Mouse Control Your Hearts and Minds?

BBC854351

Russia, we all know from geography class it’s the biggest country in the world. Isn’t it too bad Russians never did anything good? I mean, if you use Google or almost any information source people in the west use, Russians are living in a dark, inescapable prison where a fiendish despot thinks of nothing but threatening the rest of the world…

A Little Light Shines Into the Pit of Think Tank Russophobia

anypics.ru-70731

Our world is in a deadlock because few western experts think progressively. If we have a prayer of solving the crises unveiled by the coronavirus pandemic, we will have to throw useless, archaic, and dangerous ideas out. To get Earth on track to a sustainable future, we must realign our thinking and the ideas churning inside some think tanks. Fortunately, there seems…
