From Skripal to Syria – The Empire’s “New Realities” Are Reaching The End of the Road

“That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” Thus spake Karl Rove, Deputy Chief of Staff in the Government of George […]

The Emperor’s Old Clothes

Once upon a time there was an Emperor who was very rich, very vain, and exceedingly foolish. In his country emperors were elected every four years, and because many of the people had become tired of voting for Emperor after Emperor, only to find that the new one wore the same clothes as the last one, he promised that if they voted for him, he would wear a new set of clothes. “Vote for me,” he said. “I’ll put on […]

2016: The Year the Globalist War on Reality Began to Crumble

One of my favourite quotes of the 21st century is this gem from George W Bush’s Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to […]

Ode to the NeoCons — The Charge of the White Hat Brigade

The White Hats and the Black Hats stood on each side, Eyeball to eyeball across the divide. Neither advanced nor retreated one inch, The world held its breath to see who would flinch.   But the fears were misplaced for as it transpired, The Black Hats retreated – no shot being fired. The cost of the standoff just too much to pay, They packed up their stuff and went on their way.   Well the White Hats rejoiced and in […]

Guest Post: Why I’m Exceptional & Indispensable – by Hillary Clinton

Following on from her recent piece for Time magazine, in which she so eloquently explained why America is indispensable and exceptional, TheBlogMire brings you an exclusive piece in which Mrs Clinton explains why an indispensable and exceptional nation must have an indispensable and exceptional leader. (Warning: May contain traces of satire) If there’s one core belief that has guided and inspired me every step of my career in public service, it’s this: I am an exceptional woman. A great, unselfish, […]

The Tasteless Philip Hammond is Unable to Rejoice at the Liberation of Palmyra From the Wahhabi Death Cult

Imagine that a group of the most fanatical ideologues on the planet had seized an historic city and carried out unspeakable atrocities there. Imagine they had lined up 25 soldiers in the ruins of an ancient ampitheater and filmed their teenage recruits executing them. Imagine that they had tortured and beheaded the 82-year-old head of antiquities in that city and hung his mutilated body on a column in a main square. Now imagine that a foreign power teamed up with […]

There Was Nothing Conservative About the War in Iraq: A Response to Paul Horgan

I have been writing pieces for the Conservative Woman website of late, which is odd you might think since I am not a woman. Still stranger things have happened. Anyway, on 18th August, they published a piece by Paul Horgan, entitled Blair was right to invade Iraq. I would like to engage with the piece, and so it might be a good idea to familiarise yourself with Mr Horgan’s perspective, which you can find here. Although Mr Horgan makes a lot of points, […]

Michael Fallon and Those Nice Chaps With the SS Runes

The United Kingdom Secretary of State for Stoking up Conflict, Michael Fallon, just announced during a visit to Kiev that the British Army is going to be investing more UK taxpayers’ money into training the Ukrainian army, increasing the number of soldiers in the programme from just over 1,000 to around 2,000 by the end of the year. Article 10 of the Minsk II Accords states the following: Pullout of all foreign armed formations, military equipment, and also mercenaries from […]

Most Absurd Statement of 2015: UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon With his Entry

The UK Minister for Warmongering and Sounding Tough, Michael Fallon, has made it clear that bombing Syria is back on the cards. His statement to BBC Radio 4’s World at One was a masterpiece in Orwellian Newspeak, turning reality on its head on a number of occasions, and so deservedly receiving a nomination for this year’s Most Absurd Statement award. Here’s what he said: “We have always been clear that Isil has to be defeated in both Syria and Iraq. We […]

Francois Hollande, Proconsul de District Régional de la France, Gets the Hump With Caesar

So Francois Hollande, Proconsul of the Regional District of France, has just found out that his bosses in the US Government, through the NSA, have been listening in on him and his predecessors for the last few years. Somehow this seems to have come as a surprise to him, and he is reportedly very unhappy at the news, calling it “unacceptable”. He also commented that “France will not tolerate actions that threaten its security and the protection of its interests”. […]

Obama & Co Write Their Own Reality

One of the most important statements made in recent years is this, made by Karl Rove, George W. Bush’s Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff back in 2004: “That’s not the way the world really works anymore…We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and […]

The FIFA Scandal is Not About Football: It’s the Geopolitics, Stupid

I really could care less about football. As a game, I quite like it, but apart from that I see almost everything about it as being pretty dreadful — the often visceral hatred of one set of fans against another, the on-field cheating and theatrics, the stupid amounts of money and status given to men who are good at kicking a ball around, the swearing, the declining lack of sportsmanship amongst players and managers, the absurdly over-the-top sense of anticipation before England games, and the […]

Cheap Political Points or Precious Human Lives?

If you ever hear a politician using a phrase like “He’s just trying to score cheap political points,” 99 times out of 100 it means, “Of course he’s right, but I have no intention of admitting that, and I certainly have no intention of getting into this discussion. This subject is now closed.” On Sunday, Nigel Farage of UKIP, made the following statement in response to the news of hundreds of deaths after a boat carrying Libyan migrants capsized in […]

Nuland’s Cackle or Why We’re all Neocons Now

I was recently involved in a discussion thread on a blogsite where the theme was Ukraine. The author of that blogsite, a man I greatly respect had, I felt, not really grasped the nature of the U.S.-backed putsch in February last year, arguing that the somewhat incoherent policy of the U.S. Government in the aftermath of the events of February 2014 made it highly doubtful that they had orchestrated events. My response to that claim is threefold: 1. The taped […]

Must Read: Robert Parry — Deciphering the Mideast Chaos

The mainstream media’s coverage of world affairs over the past year has generally speaking been nothing short of diabolical. Proper journalism died at some point in the past decade, and the Ukrainian crisis, along with the Middle Eastern crises, have shown that there are a lot of journalists out there who seem to think their job is to tell the government’s story, rather than holding the government to account. Perhaps the most graphic displays of this I have seen, is the daily […]

Would 21 Egyptian Christians Have Been Murdered If We Hadn’t Helped Topple Gaddafi?

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was an evil man. He ruled the country of Libya with an iron fist, torturing and murdering his political opponents. There is almost nothing good that one can say about the man or his rule, save for one thing: It was better to be living in Libya under the rule of Gaddafi than in the post-Gaddafi hellhole that has emerged since NATO decided he must go. One of the greatest ironies of some of the iron-fist tyrants — Gaddafi, […]
