No event is happening in a vacuum. It is critical to emphasize this basic point when evaluating the foreign policy of President Trump and his administration.
There is a very well planned multidimensional construct within the sequencing […]
So… I read today that Obama ended the “American Century,” and Trump is bringing it back…
What to say, what to say. …
The “American Century” concept arose because we kicked ass in two wars, saved Europe with the Marshall Plan, protected it with NATO, and rose to enormous economic power.
Let’s unpack that:
Had by 1917 already arrived at a stalemate between continental Great Powers. Had it been left alone, a rather normal conditional peace likely would have broken out, the Germans and the French, enemies since the Goths sacked Gaul and Rome, would have traded a few […]
Half measures rarely result in the success of the goals they are implemented to achieve. The West, including Israel, needs to accept this.
Accepting the half-measure of Wilson’s Fourteen Points and not defeating or occupying Germany in 1918 led directly to WW2 and its tens of millions of dead.

Waves of change are washing against the hull of the Western-dominated global order that has existed since 1945 – and the ship’s officers are denying there’s a storm.
The Ruling Class elites of the West have become totalitarian – on “both” sides of the ship’s bridge. This is why Brexit and why Trump. It also will be why Italy shortly exits, and why the Dutch, the Czechs and others are preparing to cast off.
This kind of childish blather from the EU is aimed at low-info voters and those who have not been paying attention for 20+ years, who […]
