Geopolitical Tensions Are Designed To Distract The Public From Economic Decline

This article by Brandon Smith was originally published at Alt-Market.com. Tracking geopolitical and fiscal developments over the past several years is a bit like watching a slow motion train wreck; you know exactly what the consequences of the events will be, you try to warn people as much as possible, but, ultimately, you cannot reverse the disaster. The disaster has for all intents and purposes already happened. What we are witnessing is the aftermath as a forgone conclusion. This is why whenever someone asks me as an economic and political analyst “when the collapse is going to happen,” I have to shake my head in bewilderment. The “collapse” is here now. It is done. It is a historical fact. It’s just that not many people have the eyes to see it yet, primarily because they are hyper-focused on all the wrong things. For many centuries now, elitists in power […] Read More

2017: Dragon and Griffin Megaliths Dating Back 12,000 Years to End of Ice Age, or Earlier

By The Siberian Times reporter Unknown ancient people left the newly discovered fantastical creatures hewn of granite in the Altai Mountains. This dragon drawn on a rock weighing a staggering 120 tons is believed to be exceptionally old, a megalith designed by a mysterious ancient population about whom we know nothing.   The unique megaliths were located at Mokhnataya mountain in the Altai region, some 20 kilometers from the resort town of Belokurikha. Archeological researchers who found the granite monuments believe they date back deep into ancient history and were put into position by prehistoric people, yet how they did so, and why, currently defies understanding. The heavyweight dragon seems to be the oldest known image of this mythical creature in Russia. It does not appear to be related to the Chinese style of portraying the mythical creature, but a unique Siberian depiction. The Hermitage museum in St Petersburg has […] Read More

Russia Is Preparing For A Nuclear War With The United States

In Russia there is talk that nuclear war with the United States is inevitable, and they are feverishly preparing to win such a war when it happens. Thanks to tensions over Ukraine, Syria and the price of oil, U.S. relations with Russia are the worst that they have been since at least the end of the Cold War. In fact, one false move could result in U.S. and Russian forces shooting at each other in Syria as you will see below. The Russians have worked incredibly hard to upgrade and modernize their military in recent years, but meanwhile the U.S. military is being transformed into a radically politically-correct social experiment by the Obama administration. Most Americans simply assume that we will never fight a war with Russia, and that if for some reason we did that we would win easily. Unfortunately, things have changed dramatically over the past decade, […] Read More

Nuclear War Is On The Horizon: “This Is Not Just Talk… Action Has Been Taken”

As the U.S. elections draw nearer, the amount of bellicose rhetoric from politicians and key military commanders (in truth, “politicians” as well) has been increasing.  The main focus of that rhetoric has been directed toward Russia, and is also “blathered” in the direction of China, North Korea, and Iran when it suits U.S. political interests.  The problem is that all of it is not just talk: action has been taken, especially regarding Russia and the Syrian theatre of operations. Within the past several weeks, the U.S. has bombed Syrian troops, killing 62 outside of Deor ez-Zor in airstrikes and then admitting to doing so “mistakenly.”  The Russians responded by firing up a UN/coalition convoy almost immediately after.  Russian naval artillery then took out a command post with approximately 30 “coalition” officers, some of them being Americans.  The U.S. then made itself responsible (indirectly) for an attack on the Russian […] Read More

Putin To Ban Pokemon GO From Russia Due To Links To CIA

by Baxter Dmitry Vladimir Putin is set to ban Pokemon GO from Russia after an internal Kremlin investigation revealed the viral augmented reality smartphone game has direct links to the CIA and wider intelligence community and is being used to secretly gather data on a colossal scale.  Young people are being tricked into giving up their privacy to these intelligence agencies, according to Kremlin sources, and while playing the game they act as unwitting intelligence gatherers for the CIA. The game has an extensive list of intrusive tracking permissions, and it is these ‘fine print clauses’ that raised eyebrows in the Kremlin and sparked the ongoing investigation. The game’s creator, Niantec, is closely linked to the CIA. Niantec CEO John Hanke created Keyhole in 2001 – which was later bought by Google. Most of the money used to create Keyhole came from the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency and the […] Read More

On the Question of Imperialism

Is Russia Imperialist? There is much confusion as to the nature of imperialism. Many analysts contend that there is only one form of imperialism in the world today, namely NATO and that countries such as Russia and China are the leaders of a global anti-imperialist front, resisting domination by the Western corporate elite. However, such as theory does not stand up to scrutiny. In his book Imperialism: the Highest Stage of Capitalism, Vladimir Lenin defined imperialism as monopoly capitalism. He writes: If it were necessary to give the briefest possible definition of imperialism we should have to say that imperialism is the monopoly stage of capitalism. Such a definition would include what is most important, for, on the one hand, finance capital is the bank capital of a few very big monopolist banks, merged with the capital of the monopolist associations of industrialists; and, on the other hand, the […] Read More

The travelers began their journey on January 1 trekking along one of the most difficult paths starting from North Ural […] Read More

The Great American Military Rip-Off

21st Century Wire says… Is the rest of the world catching up to the US in the military arena? Is the US simply bogged down with too much politics, pork and pink elephants? Last week, Russian leader Vladimir Putin gave a public rebuttal to an open media challenge leveled by BBC veteran correspondent John Simpson, after Simpson accused Russia of being an ‘international aggressor’ in the both Europe and the Middle East. Putin responded sharply by pointing that while Washington’s annual defense and military budget totals well over $600 billion, Russia’s annual budget is a meager $70 – $80 billion in comparison, and while the US operates well over 1,000 military bases and outposts globally, Russia has only two. In light of Russia’s recent effectiveness in striking terrorist targets in Syria, this raises another very important question: is Russia getting more “bang for its buck” in terms of defense […] Read More

WWIII – Syria, Russia & Iran – The New Equation

The Syrian Front Just Got Much More Dangerous On September 30th, 2015 Russia began airstrikes against ISIS and its affiliates in Syria. These strikes were conducted at the request of the Syrian government. Iran followed announcing that they were preparing to send in ground troops These developments completely change the geopolitical equation, and not just in Syria. Western politicians and their corporate media lapdogs are obviously not happy about where this is headed, and they have taken to the airwaves in force to voice their condemnation. First they claimed that Russia was hitting “moderate”, U.S. backed rebels rather than exclusively focusing on ISIS. read more Related articles The Mysterious Deaths of Scientists Hillary Clinton Endorses GMOs Iran Says ‘Tall, White’ Space Aliens Control America 1982: Vologda region, Russia Close Encounter 1979: Yaroslavl Russia Enity 1932: Vnukovo, Yaroslavl Province, Russia
