The Vested Power Brokers Are Making Putin Public Enemy No. 1


It came to me like a bolt from the sky. The reason nothing ever changes is because powerful forces want things this way. In chaos and crisis, I mean. It’s been right there in front of us, all along.

A Nation’s Cyberspace Must Also be Defended


In recent months the role of powerful US-based transnational tech corporations has taken center stage.

The Coal Industry: Prospects for the New Decade


Despite the fact that the world’s attention is focused on the oil and gas market, one of the most important things on which mankind’s energy security depends is coal. The media doesn’t favor coal much at the moment. It is considered one of the “dirtiest” fuels, emitting the greatest amount of harmful substances into the atmosphere when used. The enthusiasts of the “green…

Russian-Chinese Civilian Aviation Challenges Western Duopoly


For decades US-based Boeing and European aerospace giant, Airbus, have dominated global civilian aviation in what many in the industry describe as a duopoly.

Fired from vertical launch tubes on a Russian warship, the missile is capable of striking both targets at sea…

In the Haystack of Western Narratives: There’s a Needle of Good News from Russia


Many people in the world are waking up to the false narrative of the liberal order. The hate leveled at anyone standing in the way of “progress”, the unbridled Russophobia, the vilification of Vladimir Putin and other world leaders, it’s now out of place in a pandemic stricken world. Still, the forces that have propelled our past and current destruction cry on…

Why Russians Just Can’t Figure Things Out


2020 may end up being the year history puts down as a time when logic totally escaped Earth’s atmosphere. Just one look at news headlines from anywhere on the globe tells us we live on a lunatic planet. In America, half the people want a fascist who seems to hate everybody as president, while the other half picked a happy war monger puppet every sane…
