Big Dots — Do They Connect? Steele and Skripal Revisited


Just came across an intriguing theory about Sergei Skripal, the former Soviet/Russian military intelligence agent who spied for Britain, and, along with his daughter Yulia, was nearly killed this spring by a dose of the nerve agent Novichok in the town of Salisbury, England, where they live. In a March 21 interview on the John Batchelor […]

KGB Deception Is No Myth


On March 18, 2018, the Washington Post Outlook section categorized KGB influence operations and my book, American Betrayal, both as “myth.” In response, I sent in the following essay, which Outlook has turned down.

When Clarity Causes Chaos


President Trump’s executive action on immigration is a terrific shock to international socialism, whose sinews, including “free” trade, mass immigration/open borders, and Globalism First, have come to undergird the American Way. In such a Marxian system, borders, the nation-state, America First, are not just anathema, they are “reactionary” relics, and effectively defunct. Or supposed to be. […]

Bukovsky vs. the British Crown — vs. the Kremlin? 


The great Vladimir Bukovsky is on a hunger strike. Here’s why. If a tree falls in the forest — no, if a legendary Soviet dissident goes on a hunger strike, and there is no media there to report on it, will it ever crash into world consciousness? Not so far. I find myself in some numbing degree […]
