    On this subject, the Russia Analyst has republished an article from an Orthodox Christian priest writing for the (now defunct?) site Orthodox England, reproduced from Pravmir.com below. The Russia Analyst will have much more to write soon regarding the truth of what renegade Hoover Institution historian Anthony Sutton recognized as the Wall Street and City of London funded Bolshevik Revolution -- which was a necessary condition for the dialectical/occultist driven Third Reich, also funded by the City and Wall Street, in Germany. The goal, as LaRouche movement historian and RogueMoney regular guest Harley Schlanger has stated, to have the Germans...
  • Terrorist in the White House?? Look who Obama just hired as "ISIS czar"

    As Judicial Watch reports, A radical foreign policy adviser fired by President Obama years ago for meeting with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is back as the administration's new czar in charge of countering the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS). The White House downplayed the new appointment by burying it deep in a press briefing delivered at a Paris hotel during the recent climate summit. "The President recently elevated Rob Malley, the NSC [National Security Council] Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa, to serve now as the Senior Advisor to the President for the Counter-ISIL...

    President Obama has appointed a foreign policy advisor known to be a friend of the terrorist group Hamas to be the administration's new czar in charge of countering ISIS. The appointee, Robert Malley, has a history of sympathizing with Islamists, which makes the appointment all the more appalling.According to the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, the White House downplayed the controversial appointment by "burying it deep in a press briefing delivered at a Paris hotel during the recent climate summit." The President recently elevated Rob Malley, the NSC [National Security Council] Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa,...

    The College Football Czar: Week 14 Week thirteen in review: LSU has decided to keep coach Fewer Miles, although the College Football Czar wonders why he bothers to stick around. In 11 years in Baton Rouge, Miles has compiled a record of 111-32, highlighted by the 2007 national championship. Yet, athletic director Joe Avella allowed rumors of the coach's imminent firing to swirl for two weeks before finally addressing the question, at which time he insultingly advised Miles to focus on his upcoming game against Texas A&M. The Tigers won that contest by a typically LSU-ian score of 19-7, after...

    The College Football Czar: Week 13 Week twelve in review: Clemson and Iowa are the only remaining undefeated teams after Ohio State, Oklahoma State and Houston were all toppled last Saturday. In the new CFP ratings, OSU has now plummeted past the Michigan State team that upset them, a development that would not likely have happened under the old BCS system. As much as it may feel right to the CFP committee that the head-to-head winner should have the higher ranking, it isn't really logical, which is why the computer-influenced BCS might have figured it differently. The Buckeyes' only loss...

    The College Football Czar: Week 12 Week eleven in review: For those readers who are unsure about the chronology, last week's issue was published the night before Gary Pinkel announced his retirement due to his having been diagnosed with lymphoma. Had this been revealed a day sooner, the College Football Czar would have thought it distasteful to criticize the coach over the previous week's events. Nevertheless, Pinkel's unfortunate personal circumstance and his handling of the campus "hunger strike" are two separate issues. What the Czar wrote about the latter is accurate, and he retracts nothing. The number of undefeated teams...

    The College Football Czar: Week 11 Week ten in review: The number of unbeaten teams has dwindled to six, as TCU, LSU, Michigan State, Memphis and Toledo were all defeated. There can be no more than four left by the start of the bowl season, because Baylor and Oklahoma State must play each other, and Ohio State and Iowa are on course to meet in the Big Ten title game. The CFP isn’t placing such a high value on that 0 in the L-column, though, and that's a good thing. As great a season as 9-0 Iowa is having, it's...

    The College Football Czar Week 10 Week nine in review: The College Football Czar had his best week to this point in the season, although it would've been one game better if not for the officiating slapstick routine that took place at the end of the Miami-Duke game. The Hurricanes were allowed to score on a last-second kickoff return, which involved eight laterals, one pitch while the ball-carrier was already down, at least one illegal block, one announcement that the play was under review, two more announcements that the play was still under review, and the apparent review of an...

    The College Football Czar: Week 9 Week eight in review: The number of undefeated teams was reduced by two with USC’s rout of Utah, and Georgia Tech’s upset (as predicted here) of Florida State. That leaves twelve teams without a defeat, eight of which would be championship contenders if they stayed that way. One of those eight, however, is Baylor, whose starting quarterback Seth Russell suffered a broken bone in his neck last Saturday against Iowa State. As explained here last week, this edition of the College Football Czar’s picks is being issued a day early. The good news from...

    The College Football Czar: Week 8 Week seven in review: The national contenders have begun to differentiate themselves from the rest of the field, as Utah, LSU, Baylor, TCU, Ohio State, Michigan State, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Stanford have all solidified their standing. Given the subjective nature of the semifinal selections, MSU is one team that cannot afford even one loss, after Michigan handed them a last-second victory on an unforced special teams turnover. That, along with some uninspired showings against lesser competition, will likely be held against the Spartans, even if they defeat Ohio State and maybe Iowa...

    The College Football Czar: Week 7 Week six in review: Another strange week has resulted in the first four coaching casualties of the season. The first of these was Marylands Randy Edsall, whose imminent dismissal had already been known, although the College Football Czar admits to being surprised that hes the first coach from a recent Big Ten expansion team to get the boot. He must have beaten out Rutgers Kyle Flood by at least a few weeks. In four-plus seasons with the Terrapins, Edsall was 22-33, after going 74-70 in 12 years at Uconn. The Terps interim coach is...

    The College Football Czar: Week 6 Week five in review: The lesson through the first five weeks of the season is that, apparently, nobody is really very good. Four of the Top Ten teams lost last Saturday, while numbers one and two, Ohio State and Michigan State, looked terrible in clinging to victories against conference foes theyd normally be expected to steamroll. Even as parity dominates, there are 20 undefeated teams at this point in the season, partly because most teams had scheduled at least one phony game against a lower-division opponent, and one deliberately uncompetitive game against a small-conference...

    The College Football Czar: Week 5 Week four in review: The College Football Czar had another bad week, although the week the replay officials had around the country was far worse. A completely unjustifiable reversal on a fumble call to decide the Thursday night Memphis-Cincinnati game set the tone for a long Saturday of blown calls on replay. The Czar accepts the fact that instant replay reviews are here to stay, but hell thank announcers to stop justifying the practice with the asinine assertion that the important thing is to get the call right in the end. Those teams that...

    Carly Fiorina may come from the executive suite, but that hasnt stopped other executives from slamming her record. The latest critique comes from Steven Rattner, a former Wall Street banker and private equity executive. Rattner, in an opinion piece in the New York Times on Saturday, called Fiorinas time as the CEO of HP short and disastrous. Rattner said HPs acquisition of Compaq, pushed through by Fiorina, caused an amount of divisiveness at the company that Rattner says he never saw in his 33-year career on Wall Street. He said that while Fiorina did serve during a tough period for...

    HER silver tongue honed by decades in corporate marketing, Carly Fiorina has used two debates, and a steely determination on the campaign trail, to climb near the top of the polls for the Republican nomination. But Americans should pause on her biggest professional credential for our highest office: a short, disastrous stint atop one of Americas iconic technology companies, Hewlett-Packard. The clearest measure of her performance and the report card preferred by Wall Street is H.P.s stock price, which dropped by 52 percent during her tenure of almost six years. Yes, Mrs. Fiorina served during the worst fall...

    The College Football Czar: Week 4 Week three in review: It was a dismal week for the College Football Czar, but hes not the only one. Top-ranked Ohio State barely eked out a victory over Northern Illinois, while both Alabama and Southern Cal D-sintegrated before our eyes. It was a Saturday filled with seesaw battles decided by razor-thin margins, several of which turned against the Czar at the last moment. For the week, he was 9-11, causing his overall record to plummet to 39-21, for a .650 winning percentage. All the on-air personalities at the Seamy Underbelly of Networks have...

    Moscow, September 24, Interfax - The Russian Investigative Committee does not doubt the authenticity of the remains of Tsar Nicholas II and his family, and additional examinations will be conducted following a request from the Russian Orthodox Church, committee spokesman Vladimir Markin has said. "The recent resumption of the criminal inquiry is not an attempt to revise the earlier received evidence and the established facts. Rather, it is an exclusive need to additionally examine the newly uncovered facts, which has been requested by the Russian Orthodox Church," he said. Russian investigators "have never doubted that all of the found remains...

    The email czar hired by the State Department to handle the agencys response to the Hillary Clinton email scandal has a second hidden conflict of interest: she received some of the same classified emails that were also sent to Hillary Clinton via her private email system, Breitbart News has learned. Secretary of State John Kerry appointed Janice L. Jacobs this week to serve as a non-partisan, non-political transparency coordinator. The recently retired bureaucrat will lead the State Departments political response to the various Clinton email investigations in Congress and the various civil lawsuits filed by transparency groups. Jacobs, who served...

    The Bulgarian Orthodox Churchs governing body, the Holy Synod, has decided to include a blessing for Simeon Saxe-Coburg as His Majesty Simeon II, Tsar of the Bulgarians in public and private worship. The proposal was made to the Holy Synod by Nikolai, Metropolitan of Plovdiv. Born in 1937, Saxe-Coburg became king of Bulgaria in 1943 after the sudden death of his father, Boris III. Because he was a minor, there was a regency of three. On the communist takeover in Bulgaria at the end of World War 2, a Peoples Court process was initiated which led to thousands of deaths,...

    A Quiet Exit for a Forgotten Ebola Czar When Ron Klain leaves his post as the White House's "Ebola response coordinator," or czar, sometime early next year, don't expect a big send-off from President Obama, much less a declaration of mission accomplished. In all likelihood, the disease will still be raging in parts of West Africa, and the U.S. will still have a sizable military presence there to combat it. The CDC will still be warning of the possibility of isolated cases on domestic soil, and the Department of Homeland Security probably won't have lifted the heightened security and...
