Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has criticized Washington’s “lack of commitment” to the historic multinational nuclear deal, one of his first moves since being re-elected. Widely considered as one of the greatest achievements of former US leader Barack Obama, his successor has clearly shown opposition to the pact. Trump admin slaps Iran with new sanctions despite […]
Jim W. Dean – Congress, dragging Trump along, is playing a dangerous game of chicken with Iran, Russia, and the EU, which has finally seemed to have awakened from its slumber of being used as a doormat by the US, on top of its own self-inflicted wounds.

It’s becoming crystal clear to more and more European citizens that the monster that is Brussels today does not represent the true interests of EU citizens. The unspeakable crime of Viktor Orbán is his insistence on acting in the interests of his citizens, not to the self-declared, arrogant unelected Commissars in Brussels.
Jim W. Dean – My, my… this came as a big surprise; a multi-billion euro jump in trade, in just the first two months of the year; a bit of a hint that some of the sanctions have a play-acting feature to them.

The row between Poland and the European Union has escalated after the EU warned Warsaw that it would remove its voting rights in the EU, if the Polish Government did not roll back controversial changes to its Constitutional Court – a sanction never before exercised in the EU.

First understand the refugee crisis in Europe is directly caused by Western Colonial Adventurism in Syria. That is the cause, and the refugee crisis is the effect.
Jim W. Dean – EU President “Bonkers” Juncker pitches having the EU jump into the Syrian crisis at this late date to have a seat at the table when it cannot even handle the refugee mess it already has. And with the US taxpayers funding 75% of NATO, he proposes a new European army for more “flexibility”.
Jim W. Dean – While this pettiness is going on, Bibi is about to wrap up getting his $40 billion ten year funding for Israel, all debt financed by American citizens, and then maybe throw the US over to work with the Russians on the next Palestine peace conference.
Organized crime groups in large German cities are trying to recruit the refugees living in shelters into their ranks. They are mainly interested in young, strong, and fit males who are to perform the dirty work.
Jim W. Dean – The postmortem on this “un-deal” has already begun, with the Germans and French shoveling dirt on the still warm TTIP corpse, while the US public generally has been asleep at the wheel on it all.
In a remarkably strident report, the US Treasury has criticized the European Commission’s tax probe into Apple, Starbucks, Fiat (now Fiat Chrysler Automobiles), and Amazon, claiming that it should not be able to collect back-taxes on the companies in Europe.

My VT colleague Michael Shrimpton has warned us about the BND many times, his book Spyhunter contains much information about the nefarious activities of the BND, for instance. Here we have a piece of evidence that the erstwhile Mr. Shrimpton may well be correct in his assertions about the German intelligence agency. Furthermore, we have […]
…from SouthFront After the two World Wars of the 20th Century, the humanitarian and economic situation in the Middle East and North Africa, the former colonies of the West, became far worse than that that of the entire northern Eurasia, especially Europe. And after 1991, in other words, after USSR’s defeat in the Cold War, […]
British politics, post the Brexit vote is in something of a mess. The vote can be seen as a damning verdict on the British public’s opinion of it’s elected Conservative government.
Place Your Bets!
The plot often spoken of, Turkey sending terrorists into Europe, one quickly tossed aside as conspiracy theory, is far from it. There was a reason Turkey looked for the visa deal with the EU and it had nothing to do with armies of Turkish tourists wanting to see the Eifel Tower and Louvre before they […]
