COVID-19 Pandemic and Drugs


The COVID-19 pandemic that has spread around the world has affected many aspects of modern life and society, including crime and drug trafficking. According to Professor of Criminology at Oxford University Federico Varese who has authored several books on organized crime, the business of crime has been seriously affected by economic downturn being felt in different countries…

Forgotten History of the Persian Corridor


“The Red Army: for the Sake of History and Generations” and “The Historical Significance of the 75th Anniversary of Victory over Fascism” are some of the headlines appearing in the Iraqi media these days. These are echoes of the Soviet people’s celebration of victory which has not been forgotten in Iraq. And although the Iraqis did not directly participate in the battle against…

COVID-19 Pandemic and Anticipated Changes Worldwide


Although the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic is far from over, changes that could occur and affect our world in the nearest future are becoming more discernible. Nowadays, many analysts point out that, on account of the current pandemic, government institutions in many regions have weakened considerably, and as a result, people do not have access to the…

COVID-19 Unleashed: A New Frontier for the Ruiners of the World


People. Please pay close attention. The problem with the world is not Donald J. Trump. The crises that plague our nations are not caused by puppet leaders. The world suffers because of the psychopaths who stand in the shadows. And, now that COVID-19 has galvanized almost all of Earth’s people, the shadows are being illuminated…

The Soviet Victory over Nazism 75 Years Ago, and COVID-19


How could the Great Patriotic War in which the Soviet people (including many members of my own family) lost at least 25 million lives, have anything in common with the latest outbreak of the novel coronavirus? You think this is an absolutely insane question? However, before you dismiss it, think twice. There are similarities how they are being portrayed…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: China


With the US spiraling downward, a downward trajectory merely steepened by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, we’d expect other nations to suffer likewise. But China, where we are told the virus first appeared, has already bounced back. While it has significant damage to repair socioeconomically, it has not only overcome the initial outbreak…

Political & Media Spin in Pandemic Times


Where the US leads, the rest of the world is bound to follow. That is the reality of living with a superpower. So it is no surprise to see Trump’s response to the pandemic being repeated in places like Poland and Hungary – not healthcare support, but political opportunism. Various Heads of State and governments are giving themselves the authority to govern by emergency powers…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: USA


The US is claimed to be hardest hit by COVID-19 with, at the time of writing, over 80,000 deaths attributed to the virus. The nation is also suffering from socioeconomic disaster as lockdowns have driven millions of Americans into not only unemployment, but predictable poverty and hunger as a result. The crisis has been pounced upon by special interests to help propel various…

American Fascism


A couple of years ago I compared Hitler’s march to fascist power and that in the US. The pusillanimity of America’s progressives, who make up the bulk of the Democratic Party Their inability to make free health care for all the law of the land The party’s continued cosiness with the military-industrial complex Its supine acceptance of the Executive Presidency American…

Holding Healthcare Hostage: The Making of a Ventilator Crisis


How big-business stopped cheap ventilators from making it to market, leaving nations vulnerable for over a decade to crisis shortages. When coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) began dominating headlines, it was accompanied by fears of potential shortages of critical medical equipment including personal protective equipment…

May 9th and the Most Inconvenient Truth of World War 2


Some days I wonder why Russia tries so hard. The hatred and lies slung at them from western leaders, lecturers, and business tycoons is a horrid reality. Take the May 9th Victory Day celebrations, as an example. No one casts even a sloppy salute toward heroes who saved the world from dastardly tyranny 75 years ago…

Will COVID Crack America’s Racist Egg?


In early May 2020, a former police officer living in Brunswick, Georgia, a rural town just north of the Florida state line, aided by his son, ambushed and killed a 25-year-old African American jogger. This incident isn’t unique, as we will see, but it tells a different story now than it would have at other times in America’s violent history. The weeks of lockdown across…
