The subject is not our usual staple but this is superb political analysis you would do well to read if you have any interest in the US election and society at all.

The United States is set to spend over $1 trillion on its nuclear weapons over the next thirty years. That is no trivial sum. To place it in context, that amounts to 77 percent of the national student debt, which hovers around $1.3 trillion.Part of the reason for this massive spending spree stems from necessity. Our current nuclear weapons systems are ageing and becoming obsolete. But rather than tailoring the next generation of nuclear deterrence to geopolitical realities, the United States is replacing its massive nuclear arsenal on a one-for-one basis as if the Cold War never ended.

Ladies and gentlemen, it appears the long anticipated moment of peak mainstream media stupidity may have finally arrived.This is what passes for journalism in America today.The Intercept reports:Sen. Rand Paul’s expression of opposition to a $1.1 billion U.S. arms sale to Saudi Arabia — which has been brutally bombing civilian targets in Yemen using U.S.-made weapons for more than a year now — alarmed CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday afternoon.Blitzer’s concern: That stopping the sale could result in fewer jobs for arms manufacturers.

The recent reports of the mainstream press on international affairs make an impression of being written by a paranoid individual. They see the same enemy behind every unpleasant development.David Cameron fails with his Remain campaign during the Brexit referendum, so who is to blame? The mainstream media presents Putin as the main beneficiary of the No vote. Hillary Clinton has problems with her campaign, for the first time in many years the “designated” candidate of the elite may lose the US election. Horrible! But who is to blame? Putin.

Russia could be poised to beome a super power again after agreeing with the US to launch what amounts to a joint air campaign against the two main extreme Islamist groups in Syria.

The original title of this article was « First You Ride the Meme and Then the Meme Rides You »What follows was put into my head by a piece claiming that in Syria “Russia [was] using advanced weapons system developed through a secret agreement with extraterrestrial visitors“. I’m not suggesting that anyone take this seriously but notice the assumption that Putin is in the superhuman category. Its creators are losing control of Putin Derangement Syndrome.

CNN just absolutely exploded with Russophobia this week after Donald Trump’s comments about Vladimir Putin in his Commander-in-Chief Forum interview with Matt Lauer. You had CNN prime time hosts like Erin Burnett and Anderson Cooper falling all over themselves to analyze the whole Donald Trump-Vladimir Putin bromance angle, with Burnett even calling Putin “Trump’s obsession.”Erin Burnett of CNN is obsessed with “Trump’s obsession”

Throughout their history, Serbs have been known as “the little Russians from the Balkans” not only because of their common Slavic roots, language, common Orthodox Christian religion and culture, but because they have overwhelmingly been on the « same side » for the last five centuries.Serbs and Russians were allies in the fight against the Turks from the 17th to the 19th century and in the First and Second World Wars. Russia also supported Serbia during its 90’s fight to preserve its territorial integrity, by not recognizing the Albanian regime in NATO occupied Kosovo.

According to the Daily Express “the European Union is fading away” while Germany’s Vice Chancellor Gabriel laments that “the European Union is going down the drain”. Obviously, a united Europe still has a lot of financial and bureaucratic strength and is likely to “present a united front” on global issues for years.On the other hand, Real World “experts” laugh and say: “Go on, bury Gayrope, but be careful, who knows, maybe Siberia will break away while you’re peddling minor details, waiting for its demise.”

US media is filled with unproven allegations that Russia is working to defeat Hillary Clinton at the polls in November. Despite no solid evidence being provided, Clinton continues to allege that Russia is responsible for the leaking of DNC e-mails, and mainstream media echoes her allegation.What motive could possibly exist for this alleged crime? According to Clinton it is about ideology. As Clinton put it in her recent speech: “The grand godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin.” Essentially, Clinton argues that Putin holds similar political views to Trump, and is trying to get him elected.

Sorting out what is going on in the Ukraine is one of the toughest jobs out there due to its complex history, multitude of ethnicities, neighbors, shifting borders over the centuries, religious squabbles, wars, and age-old resentments. In this regard, it is as complex, or more, than the Middle East.Trust us, we have spent many an long evening trying to understand this, and the work is reminiscent of looking at a bone which has fractured and splintered in many places, causing great pain. So we are very grateful for this submission from Mr. Dublanica, who is of Galician descent, and provides some valuable insight into this key part of the puzzle.

« Either Way We’re Screwed » is a bumper sticker that’s popped up in the presidential discourse. It encapsulates the frustration of many Americans over the election choices. One person is viewed as deviously deceptive, known for pursuing nefarious hidden agendas. The other is a more what-you-see-is-what-you-get character whose bombastic style causes many to dislike vehemently what they see. Some believe a Trump presidency would be an international humiliation.Today’s Russia is now a contentious campaign topic. But the past sixteen years have seen a dramatic turnabout in America’s posture toward Russia. It’s gone from an almost gleeful 1990s sense of new partnership with an old foe, to a recidivistic demonization of Russia and its leader, a throwback to Soviet times.

The German Chancellor’s house of cards is crashing down around her after the Christian Social Union (CSU) – her key coalition partners – remarkably threatened to pull the plug on co-operation. In an unprecedented political humiliation, the party said it would not take part in a keystone congress event unless Mrs Merkel immediately reversed her derided open door migration policy. It portrayed the German leader as arrogant, elitist and out of touch with ordinary people, branding her infamous « wir schaffen das », meaning we can do it, slogan patronising to ordinary voters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin unveiled the Moscow Ring Railway, an overground rail system aimed at reducing passenger traffic on the Moscow Metro, on Saturday. The new line will be integrated with the Moscow underground system and will be free for use by Metro ticket holders during its first month of operations.

An insider source at NBC reported that Hillary Clinton (you may know her as the c*nt) had an epic meltdown off-stage of her recent debate with Matt Lauer (who is currently being criticized for asking her normal journalistic questions that enraged Leftoid Hivemind authorities in charge of preapproving fluff talking points for Hillary’s benefit).Here is the transcript:

We’ll keep posting the latest smart analysis of the US presidential campaign because, at this point, nothing could be more important to Russia. We have featured Scott Adams’ work before, because it is simply brilliant. He is better known as the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, but he is also a serious political analyst, and his explanation of what is going on in the campaigns has been uncanny.
