This show has gone on long enough!

Take another look at the ‘Safety on Board Card and plan your exit. By the looks of it NATO is determined to self-destruct. After a disastrous debate with Trump, several commentators reached the conclusion that our Supreme Leader had to perform at the NATO-Summit, or he would be toast. Addressin…

The courage of independent souls

In any war, or war-like situation, the opponent, the villain, is not the most important threat. The warriors on both sides consider the skeptic, the individual with doubts, the ‘agnostic’ person, to be far more dangerous. Invariably the war-minded people will do their utmost to relegate these doub…

At some point it doesn't matter anymore

People with doubts cause friction. Without friction, no brakes. You are ill advised to accept a ride in a car with a powerful engine, and an overexcited driver, but no brakes, unless you have a death-wish. Yesterday a barrage of Russian missiles hit Kiev.

This madness has got to stop!

As we transition from a peace-time arrangement to a war-time structure, everything changes almost overnight. Friends become adversaries, and adversaries become allies. Some time ago I wrote an analysis of what happened around WW II, which hinged on historical facts to illustrate what went down. How …

What a nightmare!

A ‘shocker’ for many ordinary citizens who had been cut-off from reality by the ‘aligned’ media. The ‘debate’ between Trump and Biden, aired by CNN. Save for Jill Biden, Kamala Harris and the ‘Democrats’ on the campaign trail, and their most fanatical supporters abroad, everybody saw t…
