  • Henry Kissinger was a colossus who bestrode a century: He shaped politics like no other statesman and the world wouldn't be in such a perilous state if more followed his wise and ruthlessly pragmatic approach, says his acclaimed biographer NIALL FERGUSON

    Henry Kissinger, who died on Wednesday night at the age of 100, was the most enduringly influential secretary of state in the history of the United States. He was also the most controversial. But the influence matters far more than the controversy. His critics have wasted no time in ignoring the old injunction that no ill should be spoken of the recently deceased. The scurrilous magazine Rolling Stone led with the repulsive headline 'Henry Kissinger, War Criminal Beloved by America's Ruling Class, Finally Dies'. At a time when anti-Semitism has again reared its ugly head in the wake of the...
  • In a stunning admission, Henry Kissinger just endorsed the premise of my book, ‘Stealth Invasion’

    In one brief moment, Kissinger endorsed the premise of my book, Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad, which warned that elected officials in the United States, Canada and Europe were selling out their own people by funding the creation of parallel societies — nations within nations — that would, at the right moment, rise up and try to take over.I warned that we Americans and Europeans would experience a comeuppance, a day of reckoning, after decades of importing hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees from places like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, Uzbekistan, Turkey and...

    The scales have fallen from the eyes of Henry Kissinger. He was a signatory in 2015 to a letter that urged Congress to pass legislation allowing more Muslims from Syria and Iraq — claiming to be refugees — to be admitted to the United States. Now he looks at Europe, where millions of Muslims have been allowed to settle, where they batten on the benefits provided by those generous welfare states, and sees how they have spread the virus of antisemitism that they brought with them when they arrived. Kissinger was shaken by the murderous antisemitism that was on display...

    Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says it was a "grave mistake" for Germany to allow so many migrants in, warning that it creates a "pressure group" in a country — just as Germany has seen pro-Hamas celebrations in the streets. "It was a grave mistake to let in so many people of totally different culture and religion and concepts because it creates a pressure group inside each country that does that," the 100-year-old former U.S. diplomat said in an interview with Germany’s Welt TV. He was responding to a question about scenes in Germany where Arab protesters in Berlin...

    US elder statesman Henry Kissinger said that Russia’s invasion shows there is no longer a point to keeping Ukraine out of Nato, the long-held aspiration of Kyiv that he had opposed. The 99-year-old former secretary of state and apostle of realpolitik has for months advocated a ceasefire in the Ukraine war that would in effect accept some military gains by Russia. But speaking virtually to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Kissinger said that Nato membership for Ukraine would be an “appropriate outcome”. “Before this war, I was opposed to membership of Ukraine in Nato because I feared that it...
  • The tragedy behind Kissinger’s realpolitik

    11/30/2023 5:41:32 AM PST · by FarCenter · 14 replies
    ... Kissinger’s beliefs, which emerge through his writing, are certainly not for the faint-hearted. They are emotionally unsatisfying, yet analytically timeless. They include: Disorder is worse than injustice, since injustice merely means the world is imperfect, while disorder tempts anarchy and the Hobbesian nightmare of war and conflict, of all against all. It follows, then, that order is more important than freedom, since without order there is no freedom for anybody. The fundamental issue in international and domestic affairs is not the control of wickedness, but the limitation of self-righteousness. For it is self-righteousness that often leads to war and...

    Genocidal Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, the Chinese Foreign Ministry, and regime-approved commenters on the tightly controlled Chinese internet praised the late Henry Kissinger on Thursday as an “old friend” and “trail-blazer” in American politics. Kissinger, a former secretary of state and the architect of a form of diplomacy that granted Mao Zedong’s China access to the civilized world despite its rampant human rights atrocities, died on Wednesday at the age of 100. His last major public engagement was a visit to China in July, where he met with Xi personally and received a lavish welcome banquet.
  • 'Morally troubled' Kissinger 'recognised many of the policies he pursued' were rarely a major coup

    While leaders around the world remember Henry Kissinger fondly and praise him as a brilliant, hard-driving US statesman, the silence from Latin America is deafening. "A man has died whose historical brilliance never managed to conceal his moral wretchedness," Chile's ambassador to the United States, Juan Gabriel Valdes, wrote on X, the former Twitter. The envoy posted his acerbic remark after the death Wednesday of Kissinger, who greenlighted the 1973 coup that brought down Chile's elected socialist president and installed the rightwing dictatorship of general Augusto Pinochet. Chilean President Gabriel Boric quietly reposted that X message, and the foreign minister...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — All these years later, the scene still is almost too bizarre to imagine: a tearful president and his perplexed aide, neither very religious, kneeling in prayer on the floor of a White House bedroom in the waning hours of a shattered presidency. Until the embittered end, Henry Kissinger was one of the trusted few of a distrusting Richard Nixon. That trust, combined with Kissinger’s intellectual heft and deft manipulation of power, made him a pivotal player in a tense period in American history, a giant of U.S. foreign policy and a fixture in international relations for decades...

    Henry Kissinger, the toweringly influential former secretary of state who earned a reputation as a sagacious diplomat but drew international condemnation and accusations of war crimes for his key role in widening the American presence in Vietnam and the U.S. bombing of Cambodia, died Wednesday. He was 100. Kissinger, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany, reached the pinnacle of the American political establishment and in turn became an unlikely household name. He was secretary of state and national security adviser under two Republican presidents, Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, and advised powerful leaders in both American political parties for decades.

    “Sex and the City” actress Cynthia Nixon joined five US politicians this week in a hunger strike to demand President Biden call for a permanent cease-fire over the Gaza Strip. “None of this is normal. None of this is routine and none of this can be allowed to continue,” Nixon, 57, said at a press conference outside the White House on Monday of the estimated 14,300 Palestinians in Gaza who have been killed since Hamas’ terrorist attack on Israel on Oct. 7, according to Time. Nixon — who is reprising her iconic role as Miranda Hobbes on the “Sex and...

    A half-century before Donald Trump dismissed the four criminal cases against him as a “witch hunt,” a defensive President Richard M. Nixon famously declared, “I’m not a crook.” Nixon made the comment 50 years ago Friday, on Nov. 17, 1973, at Disney World in Florida as the Watergate scandal was swirling around him. It came a month after the Saturday Night Massacre, when Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned rather than carry out Nixon’s order to fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. Then Solicitor General Robert Bork fired Cox. Now Nixon was addressing 400 people...

    Just in case you were thinking of giving it a try, be warned: Nobody will be able to write a competent history of 20th-century American politics without absorbing the themes and revelations in the new book by Luke Nichter, The Year that Broke Politics: Collusion and Chaos in the Presidential Election of 1968. A history professor at Chapman University and the biographer of Henry Cabot Lodge, among others, Nichter is widely understood and rightly admired as a tireless researcher—though "tireless" doesn’t quite cover it: In his quest to transcribe most of the hopelessly garbled and obscure audio tapes left behind...

    Sadly, US Presidential affairs are not an uncommon occurrence (heck, around 14 were more or less caught cheating on their wives). It seems as though if the world is a stage, then the White House and Hollywood are the main locations. While nearly everyone and their mothers know about the parade of alleged affairs John F Kennedy had with A-list actresses, not much is known about the one Richard Nixon may have had with an actress-turned-socialite, Zsa Zsa Gabor. One of Gabor’s longtime friends Wendy Leigh, who co-wrote her her memoir One Lifetime Is Not Enough, previously told DailyMail back...

    When Richard Nixon entered the White House in January 1969, he inherited a war in Southeast Asia, multiple foreign crises, and domestic political turmoil in the form of race riots and antiwar protests. China was in the midst of the brutal and disastrous Cultural Revolution. Soviet Russia had recently invaded and crushed a rebellion in Czechoslovakia. China and Russia were supplying our enemies in Indochina. In the Middle East, another war was brewing that would breakout in Nixon’s second term. Nixon dealt with these matters but never took his eye off the geopolitical prize — the political pluralism of the...
