HBO’s Chernobyl

I’ve only recently watched the HBO mini-serie on Chernobyl and I can’t but recommend it highly. The cast is superb and the series is quite effective in conveying a sense of what happened in those terrible days. It is also a commentary on the Soviet regime, and a rather effective one. The main point it raises is that the Soviet Union was an inextricable web of lies. It is not only that those responsible for the nuclear disaster were lying about what they did or did not...

George Blake’s Shocking Absence of Due Diligence

I spent much of Friday catching up on Wall Street Journals from late April to mid-May. In the May 8-9 Review section of the Journal is a review of Simon Kuper, Spies, Lies, and Exile. It tells of famous Soviet spy George Blake. The reason the name rang a bell is that back in the mid-1990s my father sent me a long letter after having read Blake’s autobiography titled, tellingly, No Other Choice. My father was persuaded that Blake had no choice other than to work for...

How The US Swindled Russia In The Early 1990s

Authored by Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation, Due to a historic data-dump on December 10th, the biggest swindle that occurred in the 20th Century (or perhaps ever) is now proven as a historical fact; and this swindle was done by the US Government, against the Government and people of Russia, and it continues today and keeps getting worse under every US President. It was secretly started by US President George Herbert Walker Bush on the night of 24 February 1990; and, unless it...

Jill Stein In Senate Crosshairs For “Collusion With The Russians”

Step aside Tovarish Trump, it's time for Comrade Stein. Seemingly unable to deliver the finishing blow in the Trump Russian collusion probe, the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election is now seeking documents from Green Party candidate Jill Stein over what Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) characterized as "collusion with the Russians," reports Buzzfeed. Dennis Trainor Jr., who worked for the Stein campaign from January to August of...

Yes, The FBI Is America’s Secret Police

Authored by James Bovard via TheHill.com, Politifact delivered a “pants on fire” slam to Fox News on Friday because one of its commentators asserted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation “has become America's secret police.” The FBI has legions of new champions nowadays among liberals and Democrats who hope that its probes will end Donald Trump’s presidency. This is a stunning reversal that may have J. Edgar Hoover spinning in his grave. In order to boost the credibility of the FBI’s...

Who Killed President Kennedy And Why?

Via Oriental Review, In late October President Trump ordered that “the veil be lifted” from the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. More than 3,000 new, previously classified FBI, CIA, and Congressional documents were released to the public. A quick overview of the material shows that the bulk of it pertains either to the CIA’s covert operations against Cuba (one of the most popular theories about JFK’s assassination focuses on the ties between Lee...

What Do Hillary, Uranium One, And An FBI Bust Of A Deep Cover Russian Spy Network Have In Common?

In 2010, shortly after Hillary Clinton assumed her position as Secretary of State in the Obama administration, the FBI broke up a deep-cover Russian spy ring that had been operating in the U.S. for decades.  The operation, code named "Ghost Stories," was a huge bust for the FBI that handed the U.S. intelligence community 10 highly trained, deep-cover, Russian spies presumably with immensely valuable insights into Russia's covert operations in the homeland.  All of which is why its so...

Red October In Washington In 2017?

Submitted by Iben Thranholm Red October in Washington in 2017? I recently I came across a video on Youtube showing a presentation by former Soviet KGB propagandist Yuri Bezmenov, aka Tomas Schuman, who worked for Novosti Press Agency during the Soviet era until he defected in 1970. Yuri Bezmenov issued a strong warning to America that they were not living in an age of peace and love as many believed. Quite the contrary, he claimed. America was slowly being subverted into Marxism. He predicted...

Is Russiagate Really Hillarygate?

Authored by Paul Roderick Gregory via Forbes.com, According to an insider account, the Clinton team, put together the Russia Gate narrative within 24 hours of her defeat. The Clinton account explained that Russian hacking and election meddling caused her unexpected loss. Her opponent, Donald Trump, was a puppet of Putin. Trump, they said, “encourages espionage against our people.” The scurrilous Trump dossier, prepared by a London opposition research firm, Orbis, and paid for by unidentified...

Clinton Ally Begala: We Should “Debate Whether We Should Blow Up” Russia

Via The Daily Beast, Long-time Clinton family ally Paul Begala on Wednesday evening seemingly suggested President Trump should consider bombing Russia in response to the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election. Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the former adviser to Bill Clinton lamented how Trump supporters don’t seem particularly outraged about Russia’s meddling in American affairs. “We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” he said, “and... we should be debating how...
