Russia-gate is a Neoliberal Lie That will Destroy the World »

By James Wilson And now our politicos want Sessions to resign because he met with a Russian ambassador. How dare he!

Petro-Dollars: Why the U.S. Must Keep the World Hooked on Oil »

By James Wilson Our reason for being in Syria has nothing to do with “humanitarian” efforts, or Russian “aggression”, or spreading the shining light of democracy throughout the world.
