The United States Just Admitted the Real Reason it Opposes Russia — It’s Own Commitment to Lawlessness

Here’s an extraordinarily interesting statement from the start of a new Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report, which sets out the goals of the American military: “Washington seeks to promote a multi-polar world predicated on the principles of respect for state sovereignty and non-interference in other states’ internal affairs, the primacy of the United Nations, and a careful balance of power preventing one state or group of states from dominating the international order.” Sounds good? I mean, surely there can’t be […]

Madness Grips the Imperial City

That the US political system is in the grip of collective madness ought to be obvious to anyone who has been looking at what has been going on in Washington DC for the last few years. It has been present for some time now, but was to a certain extent hidden under the cover of some fig leaf or other – “nation-building”; “responsibility to protect”; “the war on terror”; “some other slogan”. But in the past few years, and especially […]

Nuts to Impeach Nut After Nut Fired Nut When Nut Refused to Drop Nuts Conspiracy After Nut Won Election Against Nut?

A couple of months ago I had a bet with a friend that Mr Trump would not be President by the end of the year. Nothing substantial. Just a token £0.01. Right now, I would say that bet is looking more certain by the hour, or you might say with every passing Tweet put out from the “leader of the free world”. In many ways that’s an appropriate title for Mr Trump. That’s because he represents perhaps better than anyone […]

Has Donald Trump Just Started the Beginning of the End of His Presidency?

I gave my thoughts yesterday on how the Deep State is closing in on Donald Trump, forcing him either to comply with their demands or be destroyed. Within minutes of writing that piece came the news that he had fired the Director of the FBI, James Comey. It took a while for me to process the impact that this will have, but now that I have, I believe that his actions mark the beginning of the end of what will […]

Congratulations Flood in to Donald Trump From Around the World After His Attack on Syria

Mr Trump’s hit on Syria last week may have been met with utter dismay from many who voted for him, but it has been a big hit with many former opponents. In another Blogmire exclusive, we can reveal some of the letters of congratulations Mr Trump has received from around the world. Dear Donald, I just wanted to let you know that I’m really very sorry for some of the things I said about you in the past. I must […]

US Intelligence Report is a Series of Hysterical Assertions, Manipulative Propaganda, and Official Obfuscation (SHAMPOO), But it Does Answer the Question of Why Russia is so Big

The recent 25-page report from the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Assessing Russian Activities in Recent US Elections, was billed as the US Intelligence Community’s evidence of Russian hacking of the US Elections. The easiest way of curing yourself of this notion is to go and read the thing (which you can do here), and as you do so, remind yourself that the agencies that put this together only get annual funding of a mere $80 billion […]

Obamandias — The Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama

With grateful acknowledgement to Percy Bysshe Shelley, and his great original tribute to hubris, pride and power, Ozymandias.   I met a traveller from the Indispensable Land, Who said—“Have you seen the empty hulk over yonder, That stands in the corridors of power?” Near it, alongside a broken Teleprompter, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, Whose turned up tippy tippy nose, And look of smug Exceptional Superiority from a great height, And sneer of patronising condescension, Tell that its sculptor well […]

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, […]

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Now Starring in: The Basket of Deplorables — A Freak Show Masquerading as an Election

“As a connoisseur of human folly, I thought you impatient to be savouring these delights.” “Of some delights, I believe, sir, a little goes a long way.” Mr Bennet & Lizzie Bennet in the 1995 TV adaptation of Pride & Prejudice   I can’t help but recall these lines whenever my thoughts turn to the freak show masquerading as an election, which is currently hurtling its way to its dramatic and awful conclusion somewhere across the Atlantic. Were the spectacle […]

An Ae-Psyops Fable: The Little Old Woman Who Cried Bear!

Once upon a time there was a little old woman who lived in a large town. She was very ambitious and wanted to become the town’s Mayoress, and she often told people that they really ought to elect her because the town needed to break what she called “the glass ceiling”. But there was one problem. Many in the town were distrustful of her. For she was known to be exceedingly corrupt, regularly untruthful, and committed to sending the townsmen […]

Brexit: Be Prepared for the Mother of all Stitch-ups

I don’t usually like to indulge in prophetic utterances, and I’m not sure I would describe this as such an attempt – more an informed hunch – but I believe that the 17,410,742 people who just expressed their opinion in a democratic vote to leave the European Union are about to find themselves involved in what can only be described as the mother of all stitch ups. Brexit just isn’t going to happen!!! What makes me so sure? Well there […]

Pushing Mr Obama and the Globalist Project to the Back of the Queue

To those conservatives who have been operating under the assumption that Britain has a special relationship with a special friend called America, I do hope that Mr Obama has managed to rid you of that notion. I hope that if nothing else, Mr Obama’s typically crass intervention in the affairs of another country will have made you see the glaring truth. Although Mr Obama has made this clear in previous statements, his “back of the queue” line last Friday was […]

Turkey, Terrorists & Trickery: A Plea Not to be Taken in by Dave Cameron’s Syrian Deception

Any day now, David Cameron is likely to go to the House of Commons to seek approval for bombing in Syria. Having helped to create a failed state in Libya in 2011, Mr Cameron has been itching to become more overtly involved in Syria, especially after being defeated in a Commons vote back in 2013. My view is that he must be stopped. It is not simply that our intervention there is a bad idea; it is that his stated objective for […]

US Government Involved in ‘State-Sponsored Duping of Olympic Proportions’ — World Anti-Duping Agency

The U.S. Government has been operating a huge state-sponsored duping programme, according to a damning report by the World Anti-Duping Agency (WADA). The allegations of duping go back a number of years and, according to the report, investigations have uncovered a “deeply rooted culture of duping” going all the way to the top of the Federal Government. During a press conference the report’s author, Rick Dollar, pointed to the claims of Weapons of Mass Destruction as a pretext to go […]

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, […]

Warning: Slavish Obedience to Washington Can Seriously Damage Your Nation’s Health (or How to Get Nuclear Weapons Pointed at You)

I like Poland. My wife is Polish, and I have visited the country more times than any other outside England. So I have more than just a passing interest in the country, and would love to see it enjoying a good measure of safety and security. We all know the sad history, and that Poland has seldom felt secure, having rival empires vying for its land at various times in its history. And we all know that having seen the […]

Democracy US Wants to Export: 330 Million Citizens and It’s Down to Another Clinton and Another Bush

In the run up to the UK General Election in a few weeks, I will be posting a series of short articles looking at the giant fraud that we call democracy. But before I get onto that, I want to draw your attention to this piece, which helpfully sums up a lot of what is wrong with our electoral systems, only about that other great “democratic” fraud, the USA, where they might as well flip a coin to decide the […]

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 […]

Chapter 21: In Which Barack Obama Gets the Wrong Country Again

I posed the question last week of whether Kiev has any obligations under Minsk II. This was not of course intended to be a serious question, but rather a cynical one, the point being that two of the guarantors of that agreement — France and Germany — along with the UK, US, Italy, and the European Council had made a statement speaking of Russia’s obligations (even though Russia has no such obligations, not being a party in the conflict, nor […]

The US Colony of Estonia Gives us a Lesson in Geopolitics

Here is something I wrote back in December in the wake of the Estonian Prime Minister’s pathetic reaction to the revelations of CIA torture: “I really, really loathed the USSR and all that it stood for. So too did the majority of Estonians. But unfortunately, it seems their black hats/white hats approach has blinded them and they are now heading back to the role of vassal nation of another increasingly repressive regime. And as they do so, their commitment to liberties and freedom of […]

Will Minsk Bring Peace?

So what to make of the marathon talks at Minsk? Will they bring peace? Were there any “winners”? Were there any “losers”? I have to confess that I have no great expectations that this agreement will bring lasting peace, for a number of reasons: 1. The first is that the four powers – Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine – signed nothing whatsoever. Contrary to the way this is being reported in the mainstream media, not one of these parties actually […]

John McCain: Another Contender for Most Absurd Statement of 2015

So far in our ongoing competition to find the most absurd statement made by a public figure in 2015, we have had entries from Pierre Muscovici, Victoria Nuland’s pet poodle Yats, and Victoria Nuland’s puppet Barry. Now we have the first entry from Victoria Nuland’s fellow friend of the far-right, John McCain. To be honest it was only a matter of time before the old warmonger McCain entered the fray. Such is his commitment to starting conflicts all over the […]

Obama: We Arm-Twisted Some Folks

Isn’t this the very definition of arrogant, belligerent bullying: “Now, I also think that if we were just resorting to that and we didn’t have a realistic view that there are bad people out there who are trying to do us harm — and we’ve got to have the strongest military in the world, and we occasionally have to twist the arms of countries that wouldn’t do what we need them to do if it weren’t for the various economic […]

You Don’t Get it Angela: WE WANT WAR

I’m still in two minds what to make of Angela Merkel’s and Francois Hollands’s trip to Moscow on Friday. On the one hand, I simply don’t trust either of them enough to think that they are genuinely seeking peace. Why? Because since the start of this conflict, the two of them have known full well how this started, who was behind the violent coup, the calibre of people who gained power in Kiev, the neo-Nazi battalions, the constant bombardment of […]

Obama the Reckless

Robert Parry, the journalist that broke the Iran contra scandal back in the 80s, has been magnificent in his determination over the past year to expose the true story behind what has happened in Ukraine. I strongly recommend his latest piece, in which he gives a great summary of the real story behind all these events, and shows just how reckless Barack O’Bomber has been, to the point that unlike any of his predecessors, he seems to be prepared to […]

Obama Admits: I did it. It was me! Well Almost!

In a rare moment of candour, President Barack O’Bomber yesterday said the following in an interview with CNN: “And since Mr. Putin made this decision around Crimea and Ukraine — not because of some grand strategy, but essentially because he was caught off-balance by the protests in the Maidan and [Ukraine’s then-President Viktor] Yanukovych then fleeing after we had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine.” Well, well, well. Of course this doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has been seriously following the conflict. The arch neocon, […]

Marie Harf’s Amazing Powers of Omniscience and Amnesia

12 people are killed in an attack on a bus in Volnovakha, in the Donetsk Region. There is not enough information to know who did it. The OSCE says it cannot even identify what type of weapon or weapons were used, let alone who was responsible and calls for an investigation. But why bother with an investigation when the folks who told you what happened to MH17 within minutes of its crashing (though they’ve still yet to share the satellite photos they’ve got, […]

Russian Aggression? Nah! It’s Just US Peacemaking

What’s this? Is it finally the proof that we have all been waiting for of Russian aggression in the form of tanks and Armoured Personnel Carriers, threatening a peaceful neighbouring country and marking the beginning of the campaign of European conquest which the Russians are so obviously desperate to begin? Nah! It’s just a train carrying a cargo of US peace-making equipment including Bradley Fighting Vehicles, M113 Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTTs), High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled […]

Was This a Declaration of War?

Anyone who has read this blog over the past few months will have been struck by the amount of articles on the Ukraine crisis. Sure, I have written about other issues as well, but Ukraine has featured heavily. Why is this? The reason is that from the outset of that whole crisis, it has been clear to me that this is not really about Ukraine at all. The poor unfortunate dupes in that country who believe that the West is […]

Did He Really Say That? Yessir, He Really Did

Okay so three guesses which world leader recently said this: “We’re also very firm on the need to uphold core international principles, and one of those principles is you don’t invade other countries or finance proxies and support them in ways that break up a country that has mechanisms for democratic elections.” I can see what you’re thinking. It surely must have been someone who takes international principles very seriously, right? It must have been someone who takes the issue […]

That’s Really Funny Chuck

The US Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, is apparently fed up with his current job and is looking to set himself up as a funnyman. Chuck Hagel is a good name for a comedian. In a particularly belligerent speech this Wednesday, Mr Hagel followed in the footsteps of his boss, Mr O’Bomber, who recently went to the UN to tell the world that the three biggest threats to the world are: 1) Ebola 2) Russia 3) ISIS Mr Hagel also […]

My Enemy’s Enemy is my Friend’s Enemy’s Enemy’s Friend — or US Foreign Policy in a Nutshell

Anyone trying to make sense of what is going on in the Middle East at the moment is going to have their work cut out. Trying to decipher the meaning of it is a bit like peeling an onion — in order to find out the central issues, you are going to have to keep on peeling away past the outside layers until you get to the heart of the matter. On the surface of it all, it appears to […]

A Couple of Helpful Articles on the Defining Crisis of the 21st Century

I seem to be writing about Ukraine all the time. I promise I will write about some other issues shortly. However, my reason for doing so is that I believe this crisis to be the defining crisis of the 21st Century so far. It is something that has been brewing at least as far back as 1991, and in many ways all the way back to Otto von Bismarck in the 19th Century. It is also something that may well define the shape […]
