WWIII?

After a bitter and scandal-filled election and with an increasingly divided nation, you might think that the Biden administration would move with circumspection and try to heal the country. Not at all. They are dead set on ‘The Great Reset,’ which turns out to mean overturning the social order without changing leadership. Because the ballot…

Ukraine war

For those paying attention, it’s clear that Russia is winning the Ukrainian War. The counter-narrative, claiming that Ukraine is winning, was maintained until the U.S. Congress passed the $40b aid package. As soon as the bill passed, the famed Azov brigade surrendered.   Despite Russian aggression, I found it difficult to support Ukraine. Ukraine is a…

Many are now echoing my warning about war. Both sides–Russia and Ukraine–have only hardened their stance amid calls of de-escalation. Ukraine, prodded by the war-hawks in the Biden administration,…

Ukrainian President Zelensky, by singing decree No. 117/2021, has virtually declared war against Russia. US Secretary of Defense Austin, a former board member of Raytheon, promises unwavering US support for Ukraine. Many…

British judge rejects Assange extradition

Surprisingly, this morning a British judge rejected the US request for extradition of Julian Assange. Assange, as most of you know, is the beleaguered founder/leader of WikiLeaks. Previously, Judge Vanessa Baraitser was considered a harsh critic of Assange so her decision surprises me. Assange’s supporters expected a different decision, which would most likely spell the…
