Terrence Malick is just embarrassing movie stars with weird sex stuff now
Terrence Malick apparently isn't making movies anymore, he's making elaborate excuses to put our hottest movie stars into extremely awkward sex-fetish scenarios that are about as titillating as invasive dentistry. Only two reasons I can think for why he might be doing this: To thoroughly embarrass famous people without anyone realizing it, or to gratify his own bizarro, wildly inaccurate notions

The 1930s were humanity's darkest, bloodiest hour. Are you paying attention?
A decade haunted by mass poverty, violent extremism and world war gives us one crucial advantage: the chance to learn the era’s lessons and avoid its mistakes Even to mention the 1930s is to evoke the period when human civilisation entered its darkest, bloodiest chapter. No case needs to be argued; just to name the decade is enough. It is a byword for mass poverty, violent extremism and the gathe

Ron Paul Drops Wiretap Truth Bombs
A lot of ink has been spilled on the latest allegations that Obama wiretapped the Trump campaign last fall, but very few people have gotten at the heart of the issue.

But although I am a fan of The Saker, I don't follow him daily. Today, I was clued in by Paul Craig Roberts, who most of you should know by now is the best provider of the REAL news of the day, rather than that of the lying "mainstream meadia" whose job is to deceive the American people.

Truth in advertising: (1) Some of my best friends are Jewish. (2) The United Nations have a rule that any nation that attacks a peaceful nation is guilty of war crimes. But (3) the UN looks away when the attacker is the U.S. Therefore, 9 sovran nations have been destroyed by the U.S. and NATO in the last decade, killing milions. This blog begins with an interview with Four-star General Wesley Clark, the finest top U.S. general since Dwight Eisenhower. Yet even Eisenhower could not have succeded at his landing in Normandy beach were it for the Russians destroying the Third Reich in the east at the expense of 20 million Russian casualties (by far the most for any one country in WW II). Yet, all of these facts are lost to Americans who believe their country's propaganda, spread by the despicable "mainstream media" who repeat their lies. Now we are heading toward a nuclear war with Russia, whose president Vladimir Putin tries hard to avoid, despite having superior weapons. Yet the insane…
