REALPOLITIK: A Covert War Between the U.S.S.A and Germany? – By Dr. Joseph P Farrell


Source –

“…Big French and German armaments concerns merged some months ago. As I speculated at that time, this was probably in aid of advancing the project to create a common EU military, in order to standardize equipment and technologies….Such a military would be a convenient way to bypass NATO and hence end American influence not only within the alliance system, but to greatly curb its influence on the continent and in internal European, and particularly German, affairs”:


Lest we forget, besides strange archaeo-paleographico-geopolitics and space recently, there is the ordinary financial malfeasance in high circles, epitomized currently by the growing problems of Deutschebank. However, now it seems that some sort of “cat” is out of the proverbial bag, as German politicians are now claiming that the USSA’s fine on Deutschebank may be…

AMERIKA: ‘The Election’, America’s Garden of Insanity – By Gordon Duff


Source –

“…The double standard has long ruled America, where crude sexual practices, open corruption and blatant disregard for public duty is as common place as rain in the jungle. Washington is the home of endless sex scandals…What really needs to exist is context, not just to judge Trump but to recognize American hypocrisy. In a world of false flag terrorism manipulated wars that kill 100,000 per year on average since 2001, that the focus never lands on the hard questions is, in itself, worse than criminal”:

(‘The Election’, America’s Garden of Insanity – By Gordon Duff)

Donald Trump is under attack for a series, seemingly endless, of tasteless comments and admissions of what may be legally defined as serial sexual assaults, perhaps numbering in the hundreds. Yet millions of American voters are choosing to overlook these behaviors. There is a reason for this and Trump, in his…

How Buhari’s Economic Policy Is A Petri Dish For Corruption. by Walter Lamberson | New York Times.


The collapsed price of oil is putting pressure on oil exporters around the world, from Canada to Kuwait. But perhaps no country is less prepared to survive prices at about $30 a barrel than Nigeria, which until a few years ago relied heavily on petroleum exports for its revenue. While countries like Saudi Arabia and Russia have saved past oil profits for rainy days, Nigeria has no such insulation. What’s worse is that Nigeria is especially dependent on imports of basic goods.

The cracks are starting to show: While the official rate doesn’t reflect it, Nigeria’s currency, the naira, is the world’s worst performing this year.

The economic troubles could hardly have come at a worse time. Last year, Nigerians elected Muhammadu Buhari as president after he ran on a zealous anti-corruption platform. Unfortunately, Mr. Buhari’s insistence on maintaining the peg at the current official exchange rate is not only…
