Published 2019-05-09 17:58:03 by Drago Victorien in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – The 2019 Victory Day speech by President Vladimir Putin was as important as ever as it sent a message to the present-day states that consciously distort the events of the past. Putin reminded of the graffiti of the Brest Fortress defenders which still makes us gasp for air in its incredible oath and testament to us. As those soldiers fought until the very end, this oath was one of hope and defiance: ”I am dying but I do not surrender” – a phrase that will now act as the title of yet another incredible, sensitive speech by Putin….

NPR’s Sinophobia Problem – Double Standards on Uighurs, and Orientalism Abounds

Published 2019-05-09 16:14:08 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, United-States

It’s understandable that after seeing many countries destroyed by the west backed terrorists, China is taking a cautious measure. The west of course needs re-education camps to free war criminals from evil thoughts of war profiteering, but instead, its propaganda tentacle keeps perpetuating false narratives for the ruling class.  – Hiroyuki Hamada * By Leo He Zhao “An attempted “expose” by NPR that ends up being quite revealing.” (Despite every attempt to spin – Zhao) Excerpts and comments from Fieyahng Sun: “Mejit Mahmut, the ethnic Uighur principal of what authorities call the Kashgar Vocational Education and Training Center, insists the… Continue ->

Will Brazil Attack Venezuela? Trump names Brazil ‘Top U.S Military Partner’ outside NATO

Published 2019-05-09 15:59:22 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America, Nato, United-States

WASHINGTON DC – US President Donald Trump has notified Congress of his decision to designate Brazil as its main non-NATO partner, as Washington attempts to ratchet up pressure on Caracas, where Maduro’s government has recently succeeded in warding off two rounds of intensive coup-attempts. FRN assesses that these moves represent attempts by the Trump administration to gear NATO towards Monroe Doctrine types of operations. This is a complicated endeavor because the main tension between the EU and Washington is over whether Washington will be allowed to insert itself as middle-man on Latin American business dealings, particularly in the area of… Continue ->

Published 2019-05-09 15:30:45 by Guest Author in Belgium, Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions

By Robert Steuckers  – a writer and Belgian political activist . Formerly close to the New Right , it was the theorist of conservative revolution of the “New Right”. He left GRECE in 1993 to create Synergies Européennes, where he defends the theses of a pan-European anti-capitalist nationalism. Initiator of conferences, co-author of several collected works, he is considered a “polyglot lecturer”.   What do political scientists mean when they talk about “pyropolitics”? There are two sources to explore in order to understand what they mean; first, one has to investigate the entire realm of political theology, including Juan Donoso Cortès’ thoughts about liberalism, socialism, and Catholicism (the… Continue ->

Published 2019-05-09 13:22:12 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Russia, United-States

American analysts have finally understood why Russia and China are buying more and more gold: the goal of Moscow and Beijing is to change the rules in the global economy and put an end to the hegemony of the dollar. According to data from the World Gold Council (WGC), last year central banks around the world bought 651 tonnes of gold, or 74% more than in 2017 – the highest since 1971, when the US abandoned the gold standard. Half of this volume was bought by the Russian Central Bank. Today the Russian Central Bank has 2,112 tons of gold… Continue ->

When US and USSR allied to defeat the Nazis, the US made this film in honor of Russia’s struggle

Published 2019-05-09 00:16:38 by Tom Winter in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Victory-Day

The Battle of Russia, free on youtube, would be grand way to celebrate Victory Day. The Wikipedia entry for it lists other ways to access the movie. If you cannot join an Immortal Regiment, why not hold a watch party? I’m watching it myself, and had a thought: “Most people don’t even know that this film exists! Well, we can DO something about that.” What to say about the film? Watch it. If you have already watched it, watch it again. A grand Victory Day ritual. “We stayed a way from politics and made it a people’s battle. As a… Continue ->

Published 2019-05-09 00:16:11 by Guest Author in Headline-News, Libya, Mena, News, Opinions, United-Kingdom

By Vladimir Gujaničić – If it is known from the beginning of the Haftar march in Tripoli that the UK, along with Turkey and Qatar, supports the Muslim Brotherhood government in Tripoli, the BBC’s reporting on the ground goes beyond the boundaries of bias and unprofessionalism. The BBC reporter in Tripoli Feras Kilani reported a few days ago about the fighting that runs south of Tripoli. After a short report on the fighting Feras Kilani said “Hello, this is Libya, it could be one of the richest countries for oil”, but further reports about the advancement of General Haftar coming… Continue ->
