Theresa May’s sudden call for a General Election – to be held on June 8th – caught many by surprise. Having previously said on multiple occasions that she didn’t intend to hold another election, she suddenly changed her mind. The question is why. Some have quickly suggested that, aside from...

After the St Petersburg attack a few weeks ago, I specifically predicted there would be a staged terror attack in France just prior to the presidential elections. Here’s what I wrote at the time. ‘I want to go on record as predicting there may be a staged terror attack somewhere in France...

It is difficult to think of a ‘Muslim’ society as progressive, modernist and liberal as Turkey has traditionally been, particularly as it is also a democracy. This makes Turkey a relatively unique society in the world and a positive example of how moderate Sunni Islam and modern democratic and...

I was watching some of the BBC news reports from North Korea’s military parade during the ‘Day of the Sun’ celebrations. It was a rare occasion in which select foreign reporters were allowed – under very close supervision (and minus their phones) – into the North Korean capital. The celebrations...

I came across this old footage of Syria’s First Lady, Asma al-Assad, and found the content of her talk here striking: and also somewhat poignant, given when it was made and what has happened since. Given the current situation and escalating tensions, I thought this was well worth sharing. In...

Our friend, El-Machete Illustrated, forwarded his latest cartoon to post. Here it is. He’s calling it ‘Illusions of Syria’. It seems to capture the mood pretty adeptly.

Pearl Jam’s induction into the Hall of Fame could probably have been regarded as inevitable: I’m glad to see it though. 2017 was the first year they were eligible, according to the HoF rules. In a year that saw the legendary Joan Baez also inducted, along with the late rapper Tupac Shakur among...

Unsurprisingly, more or less every image of the sarin attack victims being circulated in international media seems to have involved the infamous White Helmets or bears their logo. However many Nobel Peace Prizes they might get nominated for or however many Oscars they win, the White Helmets (...

I’m so bored of trying to talk about terror attacks in Europe, and also so unable to keep up with the rate at which these things are occurring, that I don’t have time to look into yesterday’s lorry attack in Stockholm, Sweden, in any great detail. I have written and posted repeatedly and at...

The entirety of international corporate media seems to have completely forgotten – or deliberately omitted – the fact that the Syrian government had officially completed the removal of its last remaining chemical weapons stockpile as of June 23rd 2014. This was apparently confirmed by the United...

And so we’re dragged back to the Ken Livingstone ‘Anti Semitism’ scandal and the torches and pitchforks are back out. Livingstone, who has been described as “the only truly successful left-wing British politician of modern times”, may have made a comment that was offensive to some: but it was...

Aaaaaannd… here we are again. Hope you enjoyed the brief break from the Neo-Con/regime-change program: but we’re back to the regularly scheduled program. Chemical attack in Syria against civilians. Assad must go. A line has been crossed. Let loose the dogs of war. Etc.  Suddenly, after all the...

Going to come out and say that the train blast in St Petersburg, Russia, is probably a (Russian) state-organised false-flag. There is a tendency across most alternative media to refrain from suggesting such things when it concerns Russia and to limit suspicion only to the US, EU or British state...

A quick introduction to the work of Eric Garcia – a bad-ass political cartoonist who got in touch me with me a few weeks ago. Eric began creating his cartoons while he was serving in the U.S. Air Force and he decided to start making fun of the military. He has gone on from there […]

I was asked by Dr Leon Tressell to re-post this very lengthy article he recently published at SouthFront. In it, he provides a very thorough analysis of the situation now in Syria; and of the actions and motivations of the various players and power-blocs involved in the conflict and how the...

As the days have gone on, it has seemed increasingly like the Westminster attack of 22/3 was probably a state-organised false-flag. I had thought that anyway, but had initially been a little more reticent in stating it outright. But, one week on, I want to draw a line under the subject and move...

Just to clear, again: I didn’t suggest that what happened in Westminster wasn’t a ‘terrorist’ attack involving a real psycho jihadi. Some people *are* calling it a hoax involving fake footage and crisis actors, but I specifically said in that first post that this probably was or could’ve been a...

A few more quick updates on the attack in Westminster yesterday. I apologise to any regular readers who expect the longer, more in-depth posts – but I really am pressed for time right now. So we have a bit more official information now. The suspect has been identified and is also dead. Two of...

Just want to throw a few interesting points out here, pending a more considered thought-process as more substantial information is released. As I’m pressed for time and as the information about this attack is still being updated all the time, the notes below are just a quick, provisional...

With Article 50 due to be triggered imminently, we might naturally ask ourselves again what it is that the ‘Brexit’ process is meant to lead us towards in the long-run. ‘Shock Doctrine’, Child Poverty, Ultra-Capitalism ‘On Steroids’ and the UK’s potential future as a corporate tax-haven are just...

Or an alternative title for this post could ‘Turkey Comes to the Aid of Geert Wilders’. I’m just going to come out and say it – even though I could be totally wrong about this. Does anyone else think that the ‘Turkish protests’ in the Netherlands are teeny-weeny bit suspect? I hinted at this...

With the Dutch elections just a couple of days away now, I decided it was important to reiterate – particularly to any readers in Holland – that the clown labelled “the Dutch Donald Trump” is actually a foreign agent being propped up to service a foreign agenda. I already laid out clearly – in...

This is probably the most important thing that will be posted on this site this year, so I would ask anyone here to read it all the way through and then draw your own conclusions. The underlying theme that emerges from this article – which I have been putting together since December – is one...

A brief word in respect for Labour MP Gerald Kaufman, who passed away a few days ago. Kaufman, who served as a Member of Parliament from 1970 until his death in 2017, was the longest-serving MP in the House. It was curious that Kaufman happened to pass away at precisely the time I was putting...

A week ago, I relayed the report, via the Times of Israel, that President Trump was seeking Stephen Feinberg – CEO of the private security firm (mercenary group), DYNCORP – to conduct an “audit” of American intelligence and security agencies. I suggested that the Israeli billionaire’s enlistment...

It is hard to imagine that the original Star Trek series is now fifty years old. It is also difficult to think of any cultural entity, certainly not a TV show, that has achieved a comparable level of cultural penetration or longevity. So much of Star Trek – and not even the movie franchise or...

 I recently spoke with Dr Leon Tressell, a historian of geopolitics and expert on the ‘bankster crime wave’. Instead of trying to summarise or repackage his material, I’ve decided – with his full permission – to fully reproduce the text of an article he recently published for SouthFront; it...

A story that has appeared in a few outlets in recent days, principally the Times of Israel, may provide a clue to the real reason why Trump’s short-lived National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has been made to resign – and it has nothing to do with Russia. It is also something people should...

You couldn’t really get a better – or more tragic – illustration than this of the continuity of agenda when it comes to US foreign policy and of how it doesn’t actually matter what administration happens to be in the White House. It’s all about perspective, of course: but if you’re a child in...

Opponents of US-led foreign interventions and wars may find themselves disappointed by the foreign policy paths the Trump-led White House ends up taking. It hasn’t taken very long at all for the ill omens to appear. For all the talk of a new, inward-looking protectionism and a backing away from...

So Inauguration Day in Washington came across as a decidedly odd, even slightly unsettling, affair: which is perhaps the only fitting end-point for what has been a decidedly odd, even slightly unsettling, presidential race. It also seemed to affirm my fears that we’re falling deeper into a bad...

To conclude this series of posts anticipating the imminent change of residents at the White House, it is worth paying mind to the issue of foreign policy. It’s funny how quickly the Trump campaign mantra of “drain the swamp” really, properly stopped being a thing. Not that I ever thought it was...

A statement, released via the Jamahiriya News Agency on January 9th 2017 and purporting to be the ‘Founding Declaration of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Libya’, suggests the Libyan people’s fight-back against the international conspiracy and terrorist takeover is gathering momentum.

TIME  magazine, perhaps inevitably, named its person of the year for 2016 as Donald Trump some weeks ago. Also on its list was, among others, Nigel Farage.

I’ve been feeling a little weird lately, particularly over the Christmas season. A little off-balance. It was a weird sort of year. And this feeling was amplified a day or two after Christmas when Carrie Fisher died – something that was not only very sad for me, but also seemed to mess with my...

You never forget your first love, they say. Carrie Fisher was my first crush – and my infatuation with Princess Leia as a little boy was the closest to falling in ‘love’ that a five or six year-old boy is likely to experience. Princess Leia – to my childhood eyes – was the most beautiful human...

So I’ve been digging around a bit, and I’m going to come at this from a different angle. Not going to bother pouring over footage or images and talking about the credibility of the scenes, etc, as there are others who’ll probably be doing that already. I choose to assume/believe the attack...

It is difficult to look at the situation in Aleppo and not see it in a broader context. Not only of Syria, but of Libya, the past several years, and of the entire region. And of international affairs in general. We probably shouldn’t; we should probably view different situations entirely in...
