PCR interviewed by Russia and Italy

I recently had the chance to interview Paul Craig Roberts. I remember briefly, for the uninitiated, that Dr. Roberts was a senior official of the US government, economic advisor to the President during the first term of Ronald Reagan. It is to him the creation of Reaganomics, the economic policy initiated by Reagan to revive the US economy, then stagnant. Dr. Roberts was also a member of a secret committee of control over the CIA, set up to verify the information provided by US intelligence on the continuation of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. He has still now a profound understanding of the mechanisms of power in Washington and he’s distinguished for his political analysis, often discordant compared with that of the official mainstream.

A Game of Scotch Solitaire for Europe (I)

«Whenever you fall, pick something up» advises a Scottish proverb. That’s a fairly good description of the current state of separatist movements in Europe. Various nooks and crannies of the Old World eagerly followed September’s referendum on self-determination in Scotland. Now many are trying to absorb and apply the methods used by Scottish separatists in order to advance their own interests - just like the Scots, themselves, post-referendum. The deepest reverberations from the events in Scotland were felt in Catalonia where new political skirmishes are rocking a nation already beset by a severe socio-economic crisis...

European Killers Enjoy Fascist «Safari» in Ukraine

The self-defense forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic reported the elimination of two enemy’s block posts in the area of Donetsk in the first half of July. According to their Minister of Defense Igor Strelkov, one of them was defended by people in NATO combat fatigue who were foreign passport holders.  It’s not only the hired personnel of Western private military contractors who do their job by killing for money. There are also people who go to Ukraine to get pleasure and are ready to pay for it. Stan Patton, soldier of fortune, Blackwater, shares a quotation in his Twitter saying what the prices are: a shot of howitzers - $ 100 from the tank - $ 200, a shot in the village is priced at U.S. $ 350...

A Europe of Paupers

...In Brussels, they are hoping that their forced entry into the markets of the Eastern Partnership’s post-Soviet countries (primarily Ukraine), through the creation of free trade zones with these countries and a restriction of their economic sovereignty, will enable Europeans if not to save their worsening situation, then at least to postpone the social misfortunes drawing nearer the countries of the European Union...

Human Rights and State Rights

In recent years more and more new complaints from «individual citizens» aimed at undermining the public safety of these states have begun to be filed with the European Court of Human Rights... What they did not succeed in doing now with Italy they might soon try to do with another participant state of the Convention on Human Rights...

The European Union and Russia: Old Faces, New Trends

...The upcoming general elections in Italy on 24-25 February may see the removal of the current rightwing coalition headed by Premier Mario Monti, who carried out the anti-crisis policy in line with recommendations from Brussels... In recent days, there have been many indications that the leadership of the European Union and the leaders of its member states, primarily Germany, are trying to interfere directly in the Italian election campaign in order to ensure victory for Mario Monti, regarded by Brussels as a manageable candidate...

Russia: an Indispensable Vector for Economic Recovery in Italy and in the European Union

The current economic recession that pervades the entire European Union has virulently hit some of its member countries, including Greece, Italy and Spain, with the effect of contributing further – on the geostrategic and geopolitical level – to the instability of the entire Mediterranean quadrant... The time seems ripe, therefore, accelerated by crisis in the Western system, to field a macro-regional strategy shared by Moscow and Rome for the modernization/industrialization of the Eurasian landmass, with the Italian contribution in terms of scientific knowledge, technology and experience in the context of long-term investments ensure success...

VatiLeaks a Case of Pressure Exerted by the New World Order

The trial of Paolo Gabriele, the personal butler of Pope Benedict XVI, ended on October 6 with an 18 months sentence on charges of leaking the pontiff's secret memos... The developments left watchers guessing whether the machinery behind the row was limited to Vatican's perpetual power-wrestling or the incident deserves a deeper reading. Allegations against the Vatican being a long-familiar phenomenon, the fieriest criticisms have been drawn by the extremely secretive Institute for Works of Religion commonly known as the Vatican Bank and recurrently facing accusations of money-laundering and other types of abuse... The truth is that the response to the VatiLeaks case reflected an attempt to disguise both the crumbling of the Vatican's traditional system of administration and the pressure intended to impose the global financial clans' control over the Holy See...

EU Drift – Destination Unknown (I)

At the moment, the EU is visibly divided at the face of the crisis. One of the camps comprises the embattled Mediterranean countries plus the predominantly agrarian Ireland, all of whom are sinking into a debt crisis which their populations begin to blame on secret global forces which allegedly engineered the crisis and massively benefit from bailout-linked speculations  rather than on their respective national governments. The other camp – Germany, the Netherlands, and Finland – slam their EU southern peers over reckless policies and spendings...

Rethinking Italian National Interest and Strategy in a Changing World

The world is rapidly changing. For some years now, even more rapidly. Systemic crises (and the following «great depressions») have historically caused an acceleration of the already existing dynamics of the rise and fall of powers: the 1873 crisis facilitated the rise of the USA and Germany relative to Great Britain, that of 1929 helped the German recovery and the USSR to cross its industrial gap. The crisis started in 2008 accelerates the rise of the so called «emerging powers» (in truth often already «emerged» for quite a while), particularly the BRICS, and above all China, while the until now dominant Western system of USA, Europe and Japan is losing ground...

Financial Market Manipulation Is The New Trend: Can It Continue?

Governments and economists take their hats off to free markets.  Yet, the markets are rigged, not free. ... No country dependent on foreign capital is sovereign.  A country dependent on foreign capital, especially from enemies seeking to subvert the economy, is subject to destabilizing currency and economic swings.  Russia should self-finance. ...The greatest harm that is being done to the Russian economy is not due to sanctions and the US attack on the ruble.  The greatest harm is being done by Russia’s neoliberal economists. Neoliberal economics is not merely incorrect.  It is an ideology that fosters US economic imperialism. ... If Russia is to survive, Putin must protect Russia from Western economic institutions and Western trained economists.
