The United States cannot survive the corruption of its leaders and the insouciance of its people

By Paul Craig Roberts on Monday, April 19, 2021

The United States military was sent into Afghanistan two decades ago on the basis of a lie. The warmonger neoconservative George W. Bush regime lied to the American people, to US soldiers, and to the world that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, that bin Laden was hiding in Afghanistan, that the Afghans would not turn him over to stand…

Biden’s announcement that Trump got military spending just right is dead wrong

By David Swanson on Tuesday, April 13, 2021

President Joe Biden is proposing a level of Pentagon spending so close to that of Trump’s last year in office that Bloomberg calls it a 0.4% reduction adjusting for inflation while Politico calls it a 1.5% increase and “effectively an inflation-adjusted budget boost.” I call it a disgusting violation of the will of the public spent in the hypocritical name of a grand battle against autocracies by so-called democracies, driven…

Trump and Biden’s Secret Bombing Wars

Monday, March 8, 2021

On February 25th, President Biden ordered U.S. air forces to drop seven 500-pound bombs on Iraqi forces in Syria, reportedly killing 22 people. The US airstrike has predictably failed to halt rocket attacks on deeply unpopular US bases in Iraq, which the Iraqi National Assembly passed a resolution to close over a year ago. The Western media reported the US airstrike as an isolated and exceptional incident, and there has been significant blowback from…

U.S. agenda in Baltics (Video)

By Kasparas Jankauskas on Wednesday, February 17, 2021

The Baltic States remain highly dependent on the US foreign policy. Therefore, the leadership of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia anticipated the results of the presidential elections with impatience and trepidation. Obviously, Trump’s rhetoric was troubling for countries on NATO’s Eastern frontier. On the contrary, new elected Biden took over the presidency with more personal knowledge of foreign policy and a competent team. What Biden’s election means for the Baltics? Firstly,…

Trump survived second impeachment

Monday, February 15, 2021

Former U.S. President Donald Trump survived his record-setting second impeachment proceeding on Saturday, concluding the drama that his supporters sparked on January 6 after storming the U.S. Capitol – at least for now. While it may be seen as a win for Trump and his movement, the results of the second impeachment actually show a net loss for the conservative movement in America. Even before the results of this latest…

The main threat from COVID is not the disease

By Paul Craig Roberts on Monday, November 16, 2020

The Covid Deception was used in the US to justify fraud-ridden “vote by mail” in order to steal the election from President Trump.  Covid’s next use is to assault civil liberty. If the Democrats’ theft of the election stands, we are likely to get the national lockdown that Biden’s Covid adviser favors.  Little doubt that mandatory vaccination will be sold as the way to get released from lockdown. There have…

Donald Trump has lost Election 2020 (Video)

Monday, November 9, 2020

Donald Trump is an one of the most eccentric president of the United States. The 10 oddest things Donald Trump believes: 1. Wind power is bad because it kills birds. 2. He apparently hates dogs. 3. The F-35 stealth fighter is literally invisible. 4. Vaccines cause autism. 5. “Email is for wimps”. 6. Sleeping is bad. 7. Environmentally friendly lightbulbs cause cancer. 8. Exercise uses up your body’s finite energy.…

Lithuanians for Biden: Trump ‘worshipping Putin’ was the last straw

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

Lithuanian diaspora in the United States has been split along party lines. Several hundred of US Lithuanians favouring Joe Biden have founded a support organisation. This is one of two publications about the Lithuanian diaspora in the US during the country’s presidential election. Read the story about Lithuanians for Republicans  here  . Lithuanian Americans and Friends for Biden aim to “end the uncertainty, chaos and deception that is the Trump…

Lithuanians favour Biden over Trump in US election – survey

Tuesday, November 3, 2020

More Lithuanians would prefer Joe Biden over Donald Trump as the next US president, an opinion poll has found, although half do not have a favourite in the US presidential race. The survey by Vilmorus, commissioned by BNS, asked 1,001 people which of the two presidential candidates would be better for Lithuania. About a third, 32.5 percent, said Biden would be a better US president for Lithuania, while 18.1 percent…

Questions for the European Dependencies

By Fred Reed on Friday, October 2, 2020

This admirable column gets a modest trickle of mail from European readers, for some reason chiefly in France and Italy but some from the Nordic realms. While these correspondents are intelligent and thoughtful, and sometimes translate my maunderings into their languages, they do not give a comprehensive view of what Europe thinks of the United States—the populations, I mean, not the politicians, who think what will profit them, but actual…
