Paris, France, 9 January 2019

French Democracy Dead or Alive? Or perhaps one should say, buried or revived? Because for the mass of ordinary people, far from the political, financial, media centers of power in Paris, democracy is already moribund, and their movement is an effort to save it. Ever since Margaret Thatcher decreed that “there is no alternative”, Western economic policy is made by technocrats for the benefit of financial markets, claiming that such benefits will trickle down to the populace. The trickle has largely dried up, and people are tired of having their needs and wishes totally ignored by an elite who “know best”.

R3publicans:  18 Most Mortifying Media Moments of 2018

In the second year of the Trump Administration, the media went all in.

This was the year when reporters, in the race to claim a scalp, began loosening the usual boundaries governing journalism.

So now, without any further ado, here are the 18 most mortifying media moments from 2018.

R3publicans:  Wild Success of US Propaganda Will Be the Cause of Its Demise

“The United States already has one foot in the grave…but its propaganda still rules the world. The consequence is that, based on its propagandistic success, Washington thinks it still holds the balance of economic and military power”

Paul Craig Roberts

The hubris and arrogance of Washington have been at work since the Clinton regime to destroy the power and relevance of the United States.

This website has an international audience. The most asked question from this audience is the world order. There is a realization that Washington’s control might weaken, a development people abroad see as hopeful. They ask me for verification of their hope.
