The US mid-term elections have been interpreted by the major medias in terms of the partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats. However, continuing his in-depth analysis of the social fabric, Thierry Meyssan sees a clear retreat of the Puritans faced with the Lutherans and the Catholics. Donald Trump’s political realignment, just as that of Richard Nixon before him, is close to succeeding.

Far from energizing the Democrats, Obama’s political resurrection might actually contribute to the prevailing apathy in the Sanders wing of the party and counterproductively encourage more Republicans to go out and vote, which could deal a crushing blow to the “coup” plotters and empower Trump to dismantle the “deep state” once and for all after the midterms.
For the first time ever, after 17 years of war, Washington has agreed to take a seat at the negotiating table across from the Taliban, one on one. If the Americans really put their minds and backs into such negotiations, then this will be a major change in the US strategy for this war in Afghanistan.
Elected for his promises to change the paradigm, President Trump continues to astonish all those who take him for an idiot. Yet all he is doing is implementing the ideas that he developed during his electoral campaign, thus taking his place in a political tradition which, although long neglected, is solidly anchored in US history. Leaving aside the President’s public relations communications, Thierry Meyssan analyses his acts as compared with his engagements.
The discourse on current and historical geopolitical shifts and alliances is unending. What is the new American agenda of global hegemony and how the powerful establishment intends to fulfil it under the current American presidency?
The codename given to the investigation into Hezbollah’s global economic network was “Operation Cassandra”, and it alleges to have discovered the mechanics behind the group’s self-sustaining financial ecosystem.
Russia has had three military actions this century – Chechnya II, Ossetia and Syria – all victories; all US military interventions have been failures.
The outcome of the 2016 presidential election will show that the American political system – as we have known it – will apparently cease to exist. Trump is nothing like those Republican pawns who, along with the puppets of the Democratic party, have spent the last 40 years erecting the […]
I am often able to “diagnose” insanity by applying the simple adage: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” In Syria, in spite of a continuous series of defeats in spreading the “American way of life” (another way of saying global hegemony), […]
A human tragedy has taken place. On November 14, terrorists killed over 100 people in Paris. More than 200 were injured. But even now the leadership of France has no courage to face the reality. President François Hollande keeps on harping on the same string expressing their readiness to fight […]
The paradox of the current global crisis is that for the last five years, all relatively responsible and independent nations have made tremendous efforts to save the United States from the financial, economic, military, and political disaster that looms ahead. And this is all despite Washington’s equally systematic moves to […]
My Russian friends periodically ask me what Americans think about Russia. Recent developments have given rise to a new round of questions: Putin’s interview for CBS News’ “60 Minutes”, his UN speech, and the start of air support for the beleaguered Syrians. I can best address by referring to the […]
