NATO: A Dangerous Dumbo Elephant in the General Assembly Room


World business and political systems are in a mess. America is run by a billionaire reality show host who builds golf courses and casino hotels. The European Union is about to have an economic breakdown after a cultural embolism. China still operates in a stasis of mutual distrust…

Stick a Fork in Detente: We’re Just About Done


Our world is burning down around us, but we’re so accustomed to smoke and flames we only feel the heat warming us. Every day for a decade now I’ve researched and analyzed the media, geopolitics and public relations, and I’ve decided we cannot save Earth. For a moment there was hope. The defiant strength of Russia’s…

USAID “Pimping” Big Pharma in Africa


USAID has just awarded $160 million to the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for a cooperative agreement to regulate the pharmaceutical landscape in Africa. U.S. taxpayers are now funding a U.S. State Department approved plan developed so our government can help big pharma pimps. Here’s a look inside USP and this latest USAID plan…

Bullwinkle’s “Wossamotta U?” – The Brain Power Behind American Foreign Policy


I was just reading another story about how Vladimir Putin will take over the world at Foreign Policy Magazine. It was a pretty good yarn, as Russophobic propaganda goes. But, just when the drama got really big. BAM, the FP paywall came up. “Shucks,” I thought. What if I have been wrong all along about Putin and Russia? I knew I had to find out…

American Dream is Sunk


In America readers of the most prominent newspapers and magazines read all about Putin’s empire finally crumbling, the Russians taking over Africa with “nuclear bombers,” and President Trump gifting Putin the whole world.

Lebanon: The Israeli Parking Lot We Helped Make


It was the morning of 9 January 1984. The command “Battle Stations” came over the 1MC of the USS New Jersey. As we took our stations I remembered the conversations aboard ship in the preceding days. I remember wondering about these “enemies” our officers and comrades seemed so anxious to eradicate. And then New Jersey’s main…

The Growing Legend of Unit 29155: Putin’s Goofball Supermen


US Army Brig. General Peter Zwack (Ret.) thinks the Russians are “organically ruthless.” Michael Schwirtz of the New York Times agrees with the former military attache to Moscow. A Russophobic story by the reporter reads like the latest Jason Bourne spy thriller. Unfortunately, the Russian ruthlessness case…

Of Fools, Wickedness, and the “European Florida”


The America I grew up in is long gone. That luminous dream so many whispered for so long, it became impossible decades ago, if I’m honest. The promised land that was to save the world from tyranny, its metamorphosis produced a regime as terrible as any. Now, the hegemony enters its death spiral, the purveyors of disaster prepare to move on to greener…

BC: A View of the Deadly World Order


The outlook for humanity is not good. Crises that should by now, not even exist in the 21st Century, they now affect every man, woman, and child on the planet. Still, reality never really sinks in for the people of the world. Hollywood and the PR gamers obscure the same evils humankind has endured for countless centuries. Meanwhile, the real villains escape…

After almost three decades of failed attempts to thwart Putin, the western ruling elites have turned to a Siberian medicine man. News of Aleksandr Gabyshev, a shaman wants to perform an exorcism on Russia’s president, it’s something out of a Bullwinkle Show episode…

The Exodus from Bulgaria: The EU’s Mexico


Bulgaria is the European Union’s poorest country. A country that was once called the “Silicon Valley of the Eastern Bloc,” is on the verge of social collapse. Bulgarians have been evacuating the country in alarming numbers. Here’s a look at what was once a nation with unlimited potential, transformed into a hopeless mess. The United Nations Population…

BC: Facebook Is Teetering at the Top of the Beanstalk


Facebook and other social media were supposed to foster community and give a voice to the greater masses. This was the appeal of social media in the first place. In case Mark Zuckerberg or Twitter’s Jack Dorsey forgot – we made you, and we can break you. The recent move by Facebook to censor ads…
