Battlefield Europe

During a recent trip abroad I had the privilege to witness the demise of the European Union first hand. While visiting Malmo, Sweden and Rome, Italy I witnessed first hand the conditions in these vastly different cities. The only common denominator between them is their reputation for being the cultural epicenters of their countries and the hopeless attitudes of their citizens.

Countercoup, Part 4: Spicer Repeats Napolitano Allegation, Trump Jokes Obama Tapped Him and Merkel

President Trump and his press spokesman Sean Spicer aren’t backing down on the charge, first made by Judge Andrew Napolitano on the Trump Administration friendly Fox News Channel, that Great Britain’s NSA counterpart GCHQ was used to spy on Trump. In a testy press conference Thursday night, Spicer explained the President meant the broadest definition of electronic surveillance including Trump’s use of the word ‘wiretapping’ in his tweets.

The response from the United Kingdom’s 5Eyes alliance member surveillance agency has been a rare public denial. The Chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) and the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence have denied seeing any evidence that Trump Tower was targeted for surveillance by any U.S. government agency both before and after the 2016 presidential election. However, left unsaid in these denials is surveillance of Trump associates at other locations. 

Speaking to Fox News interviewer Tucker Carlson earlier this week, Trump refused to back down on his allegations first made on Twitter Saturday March 4, that the Obama Administration targeted him with electronic forms of surveillance, including wiretapping. Instead, he hinted at “some very interesting items coming to the forefront in the next two weeks”…

Kiev Declares Blockade of LDPR After Breakaway Republics Nationalize Oligarch-Owned Industries

After weeks of provocations including intense shelling of Donetsk outskirts between the Donbass forces held industrial zone and the Ukrainian Army occupied town of Avdeevka, the Ukraine conflict has again escalated. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, perhaps deeply dissatisfied with the results of his first phone call with President Donald Trump, and facing challenges from ultra-nationalist radicals who engaged in a blockade of the coal trade between the breakaway pro-Russian Lugansk and Donetsk republics and Ukraine, has sided with the blockaders his police briefly arrested and dispersed this week. After dispersing the ultras who were blocking the flow of coal trains from the Donbass to Ukraine near the contact line, threatening the country’s coal-fired electricity and coking coal for steel supplies, Poroshenko has decided if he can’t beat his ultra-nationalist opposition he can join them.
