'Revisionist' Russia Has Moved to the 'Doorstep of NATO'?
Senior members of the Obama administration appear to be hopelessly unschooled in basic geography and history. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Wednesday, attempting to ratchet up his government's revisionist anti-Russia rhetoric, told the Association of the United States Army that the United States military "must deal with a revisionist Russia — with its modern and capable army — on NATO's doorstep.”

Khorasan Group: Anatomy of Propaganda
Remember the Khorasan Group? It was only three weeks ago, when the Obama Administration was desperate for any kind of legal justification for its plan to begin bombing Syria, that we began hearing about a horrifically dangerous group that was worse than ISIS and was in the final stages of planning an attack on the United States.

New Post
Is Baghdad about to fall to ISIS, a group which the US media has told us is more evil than evil itself (except, of course, for the Khorasan Group, which is far more terrifying)?

Crimes and Hope: Ron Paul's Conversation With Lew Rockwell
Two legendary voices for peace and liberty are at the top of their game in this historic conversation between Ron Paul and his first Congressional chief of staff, Lew Rockwell. Having worked so long for Dr. Paul I can say it sounds in many ways like the conversations we would have in his Congressional office in the 2000s-2010s. I imagine Lew Rockwell, who went before my colleagues and me, in Dr. Paul's Congressional office sitting down and bouncing ideas off of him. Listening to Dr. Paul's perspectives and latest thinking. Taking that as inspiration for further research. It brings back so many memories.

How Much is Obama's War on ISIS Going to Cost? You Don't Want to Know!
How much is Obama's new war on Iraq and Syria going to cost? If you believe the woman who was right about the costs of the last US war on Iraq, Harvard Professor Linda J. Bilmes, it's going to cost a fortune.

Is Turkey Playing Chicken With US on ISIS Fight?
Is Turkey manipulating the US attack on ISIS to serve its own regional goals? The Erdogan government has demanded that the US re-focus its priorities toward removing Assad rather the Islamic State (ISIS) if the US wants to have Turkey's support in the operation. RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams was interviewed about Turkey's goals and actions on RT...

Geoffrey Pyatt: The Outlaw as Sheriff


Pyatt

Geoffrey Pyatt is an outlaw. The US Ambassador to Ukraine was caught on tape conspiring with Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland to overthrow the government in Kiev and install leaders of US choosing.

Shortly afterward, after plenty of blood flowed through the streets of Kiev, the smoke cleared and the government had been overthrown in just the manner these two had planned.

Was this an interference in the sovereignty of Ukraine? Of course it was, by definition, as was the millions of dollars funneled through USAID and other US pseudo-NGOs which created a fifth column of revolutionaries in Ukraine.

According to the 1970 "Declaration on Principles of International Law concerning Friendly Relations and Co-operation among States in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations:
[N]o State shall organize, assist, foment, finance, incite or tolerate subversive, terrorist or armed activities directed towards the violent overthrow of the regime of another State, or interfere in civil strife in another State.
Oops. Will Obama soon issue pink slips to Nuland and Pyatt? Then perhaps a trip to the Hague? Not likely.

But the lawless Pyatt has suddenly become the lawman now that his selected group is in power, now that the legal government of Ukraine is overthrown partly with the assistance of his own hand.

Today in the Washington Post, Pyatt lets loose with yet another in an increasing line of hilariously cringe-worthy hypocritical statements from the Obama Administration.

After actively fomenting and supporting the unconstitutional overthrow of the Ukrainian government at the barrel of a gun, Pyatt condemned Sunday's scheduled referendum in Crimea to decide whether to secede from Ukraine and join Russia (where Crimea had been for more than two and a half centuries).

Said Pyatt:
Any increase of the autonomy of Crimea should be done not under the barrel of a gun but in a clear, transparent and constitutional process.
After lawlessness comes the iron rule of law! No wonder the rest of the world -- especially China, India -- is scratching its head and wondering whether the US ruling class has finally gone completely insane -- or, whether in arrogance they truly believe the rest of the world stupid enough to view such statements uncritically.

After the French Revolution the revolutionaries introduced their own new calendar, as if now they controlled even time itself. History began at the moment of revolution. Now we see that only through lawlessness can law be created.
