A LOOK BACK: ANNE WILLIAMSON AND THE RAPE OF RUSSIA

A LOOK BACK: ANNE WILLIAMSON AND THE RAPE OF RUSSIA

This very significant article was brought to my attention – along with many others which, hopefully, I will share and blog about eventually, as soon as I have the time to digest them – by former Housing and Urban Development Assistant Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts. It tells a story that, given the current Western “policies”[More...]

THAT ASTEROID MINING MEME: WEALTH, RANKING, AND RISK: THAT VENETIAN MODEL AGAIN

THAT ASTEROID MINING MEME: WEALTH, RANKING, AND RISK: THAT VENETIAN MODEL AGAIN

There were a number of articles shared with me this week about space, and they prompted some high octane speculations that I simply have to share. Two of them come from Mr. S.D., a regular reader here, and one from former Housing and Urban Development Assistant Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts. Here are the articles: Single[More...]

THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: INDIA: THE FLY IN THE BRICSA OINTMENT

THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: INDIA: THE FLY IN THE BRICSA OINTMENT

Yesterday I blogged about a scenario I speculated about in last Thursday’s News and Views from the Nefarium, namely, that it appears President Putin of Russia is using the Western sanctions as a crisis of opportunity to forge a BRICSA bloc agricultural trade zone, and through that perhaps, to start negotiation on a set of agricultural[More...]

THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: THE VATICAN HAS BEEN “LOBBIED”(READ, PRESSURED)…

In Thursday’s News and Views from the Nefarium, I reported on some interesting developments in Russia regarding agricultural imports. You’ll recall, Russia is banning most agricultural imports from the USA, Canada, Australia, and the EU, and expanding its imports from countries like China, Turkey, South Africa, Ecuador, Brazil, Chile, and Argentina. Notably absent from that list was India,[More...]

A few days ago I blogged about the coming geopolitical effects of space commercialization and competition, including the suggestion and implication that these factors might lead  to the eventual disruption of international programs such as the European Space  Agency, as individual nations with the economic base and technological infrastructure  to conduct their own independent space[More...]

EBOOKS VS SCHOLARSHIP (A PERSONAL RANT: PART ONE)

EBOOKS VS SCHOLARSHIP (A PERSONAL RANT: PART ONE)

Rarely do I rant here, on personal things of little real significance, though, there is method to my madness, as we’ll see tomorrow. But there is, in fact, some significance to my ranting, perhaps…just perhaps… I’m speaking of the so-called “e-book”, those wonders of modern electronics that, true to their claim, allow you to cart whole[More...]

“SPLENDID ISOLATION”: THE REVOLT AGAINST UNIPOLARISM HAS NOW SPREAD TO FRANCE

“SPLENDID ISOLATION”: THE REVOLT AGAINST UNIPOLARISM HAS NOW SPREAD TO FRANCE

This is another article that I not only decided to include this week in my usual trolling through Zero Hedge’s site, but that many of you also saw, and shared in emails (and again, thank you!). There is a steady, though quiet, seldom-reported-in-the-western-lamestream-media. revolt going on, and the revolt is precisely against American “unipolarism,” the polite euphemism[More...]
