Nazi Germany Is Today

Nazi Germany Is Today, Not Merely In The Past

Nazi Germany wasn’t determined to conquer only Jews, by killing them all, but also to conquer the entire land-area of the world’s largest country, Russia, by enslaving all of its residents so as to provide the Lebensraum (Iiving space) in order for “Aryans” (pureblooded Christians, descendants of Adam & Eve […]

Russia’s Upcoming International Anti-Fascist Congress Is An Important Soft Power Move

It’s of urgent importance that the Western public realizes that the self-proclaimed ‘Antifa’ networks all across their civilizational ‘sphere of influence’ are actually faux-antifascists in that many of their tactics amount to the imposition of fascist policies under the Orwellian label of supposedly being ‘anti-fascist’.

China: The “Yellow Peril”, Really?

President Biden is replaying the “yellow peril”: China would steal our patents, foster corruption and destroy the environment before imposing its totalitarian regime by force.

That is the question.

Never Belonging: George Blake’s Spy Exploits

Filling the espionage ranks with legions of the non-belonging comes with its share of risk.  The process is counter-intuitive, putting stock in skill and aptitude above the potential compromise of loyalty and divergence.  Eventually, such a recruit might find a set of closely guarded principles. The son of a Sephardic […]
