"The deep state" is shorthand for a force within Washington that is able to guide the US' ship of state over periods of time longer than presidential terms, and at times despite the stated intentions of elected officials. If Trump has indeed embroiled himself in a conflict with this entity, then, what does that mean for his policy plans and for the post-Inauguration markets?

Two Things To Read On Martin Luther King Day

While MLK was a peaceful man, he was unquestionably a fierce revolutionary against the prevailing status quo. While his cause and struggle look so obvious now, in his day many segments of American society considered him the enemy, including the U.S. government. For example, we now know that the FBI actually wrote him a letter suggesting he commit suicide.

Hungary To Launch Crackdown On All George Soros-Funded Organizations

Hungary will use "all the tools at its disposal" to “sweep out” NGOs funded by George Soros, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday.

The Islamization Of Germany In 2016: "We Are No Longer Safe"

Mass migration from the Muslim world is fast-tracking the Islamization of Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia courts, polygamy and child marriages. Mass migration has also been responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense — and even to abandon Germany altogether.

The EU Vs. The Nation State?

Big Lies Repeated

"...when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it... then keep up the lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous..." Not much has changed on the propaganda front in seventy-five years, and the evil Goebbels would feel at ease with modern developments as regards the Western Establishment’s campaign against President Putin and soon-to-be President Trump.

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.

Make No Mistake: Russia Remains The Only Target Country Of NATO's Nuclear Weapons

NATO is on a war footing, and has made it clear that «nuclear weapons are a core component of the Alliance’s overall capabilities». The Belgian F-16 deployments, deliberately and provocatively in a most sensitive area on Russia’s borders, have been authorised and greeted with approval by western governments whose citizens have little understanding that the west’s policy of confrontation is increasing tension day by day.
