  The European Parliamentary elections in May revealed an interesting trend in the changing political landscape of Europe. The first and most obvious indicator of an increasingly febrile continent was the high voter turnout. Since 1979 when nearly 62% of EU citizens voted in Parliamentary elections, the turnout has steadily declined, reaching a record low of 43% in 2009 and increasing by a meager 0.9% in the subsequent 2014 elections. The 2019 election is reported to be 50.9% which would make it the highest turnout in twenty years.   This is significant for several reasons, chiefly that the EU parliamentary elections have largely become a method for European citizens to voice the more ardent of their ideologies and political beliefs. Most understand that while they may not agree completely with

  There are very few people in Russia that could be trusted to provide a reliable  picture of where the Russian economy is going. One such person is Rair Simonyan, the first Russian chairman of American investment bank, Morgan Stanley, and later of UBS. Over a 14 year career at Morgan Stanley, Simonyan brought hundreds of billions of dollars in IPOs, mergers and acquisitions and direct foreign investments to Russia. So when Simonyan speaks, it is always worth listening to him as in the following interview. Of course, we need to keep in mind that absolute honesty, as, for instance, in criticizing Putin, could be deadly in Russia regardless of who you are. On the other hand, Simonyan is less than above board on the results of all these investments

  Western elites are struggling to find common ground between the United States and Europe on matters related to China and trade, yet they have a broad consensus on a pressing defense issue — Turkey’s purchase of Russia’s S-400 missile system is damaging to NATO, and if completed, sanctions against Ankara are imminent — according to a surprise Turkish-language BBC report detailing discussions that took place last week at the secretive Bilderberg conference.   Another key takeaway from the Bilderberg group’s conference held last weekend in Montreux, Switzerland is that elites are concerned about what another financial crisis would do to the vulnerable European Union. Western elites see economic growth as a useful tool in their battle against populism and nationalism, but in the case that the European economy were

      Thank you for those kind remarks and thanks for the opportunity to be here with you all again. As I mentioned, we’ve been very busy since president Trump was elected and as Alex mentioned I served on the president’s transition team and there we did a lot. Mike Mckenna who is with us here was on that team as well as my US colleagues.   One of the most important things we did on that transition team was put together the president’s energy blueprint. A lot of the things that have been going on in the last two years in the administration derive from his promises on the campaign trail that were put into place for use through the transition and beyond obviously. One of the things

  Some time ago, a Kharkiv-based site hosted a typical Kremlin propaganda piece featuring an ultimatum to the Bulgarian government – either you agree and secure free passage for Turk Stream, ignoring EU and US reservations, or Gazprom will shut off natural gas supply, and Bulgarians will freeze next winter.   Such provocative language blended with ultimatums is hardly what the Russian government can afford, at least at the formal level. Neither Maria Zaharova, nor Peskov, nor Putin, nor Lavrov would openly threaten a nuclear first strike.   This is where the hybrid Russian “scaremongering” machine comes into play – the radical loose-talk politicians like Zhirinovsky, or media makers like Kiseljov, or the cloak and dagger “knights” like Leonid Reshetnikov. Working in the shade and in halftones, they seek to

  The Muller report is in and there is no doubt that it will leave a huge and shameful mark in American history. For what happened was a two-year long conspiracy to remove a legitimately elected American president by the democratic party, the main stream press and most disturbingly, the Department of Justice and large part of the intelligence community, including the FBI and the CIA.   To start with the press, as the perceptive Lee Smith has written in the Tablet Magazine, “None of what went on the last two years would have been possible without the press, an indispensible partner in the biggest political scandal in a generation.” Virtually the entire main stream press, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, CNN and

Brenton Tarrant,

The article first published in americanthinker.com on 03/18/2019.   Reading the “Manifesto” of the Christchurch mass-murderer, the first thing that strikes the reader is just how rational he about what he expects will await him after his ghastly deed. He hoped to survive, serve a life sentence and be released after 27 years, all the while using his time in jail to “spread his ideals by media coverage.” Not unreasonably, he might have also said that he would write a best seller and become rich while in jail. All of this thanks to the fact that the death penalty in New Zealand (and all of Europe) is considered cruel and unusual punishment even for scum like this.   More to the point, the entire mainstream media in both America and Europe promptly
