Trump Left Saudi Arabia Off His Immigration Ban... Here's Why

It’s hard to overstate how much the petrodollar system benefits the US dollar. It’s allowed the US government and many Americans to live beyond their means for decades. And it’s the reason the media and political elite give the Saudis special treatment...

From New World Order To Hazy Global Disorder

It is a new global disorder but in this chaos, a return to a multipolar world and the end of 'sole U.S. superpower' status may be a blessing in the long run. In the short run, however, the chaos will confuse every foreign ministry and international organization bureaucracy on every continent.

Putin's Tough Choice: China Or The West

Will Putin cave in to the demands of the West to renounce his (China/Iran) allies in exchange for the improved relation and the dropping of sanctions?

Congresswoman Who Says U.S. Funds ISIS Just Got Back from Syria: Here's What She Found

“My visit to Syria has made it abundantly clear: Our counterproductive regime change war does not serve America’s interest, and it certainly isn’t in the interest of the Syrian people... I was asked, ‘Why is the United States and its allies helping al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups try to take over Syria? Syria did not attack the United States. Al-Qaeda did.’ I had no answer.

Paul Craig Roberts Worries "What Is Henry Kissinger Up To?"

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is reportedly advising US president-elect Donald Trump how to "bring the United States and Russia closer together to offset China’s military buildup."

Damaging The Deep State: Trump, Russia, And China

It has become clear Trump's attitude towards Russia and China is very different from that of his predecessors. Amazingly, he is already wresting power from the deep state, causing it great resentment, which under Obama, Clinton and the Bushes, ran geopolitical policy. From January, barring accidents the world will not be the same, the establishment up-ended.

The Lessons Of Aleppo (For Trump)
