    Galloway sworn in as the newest Member of Parliament...The next election will be about Muslims, George Galloway said as he was sworn into the Commons as the new MP for Rochdale. The controversial politician said it was “clear” to him that Rishi Sunak had identified “Muslims and Gaza” as the “wedge issue” that he intended to use as his “only hope of re-election”. He vowed to target Angela Rayner’s Ashton-under-Lyne seat, claiming to have “at least 15,000 supporters” in the Greater Manchester constituency – enough to overturn the deputy Labour leader’s majority of about 4,000. At an impromptu press conference...

    It's very early doors up at the count in Rochdale, but already George Galloway's team say they have taken the seat. A source close to the former Labour MP said they have won "comfortably". Given the polls closed less than an hour ago, there is still a lot of time left before we get an official result. But the confidence of the Galloway team to make this call shows how successful the campaign has been in their view. Speaking after the polls closed, Mr Galloway said: "Thank you to every voter who took the time to send a message to...

    The C.I.A.’s concerns were not unwarranted. In 2019, the Russians undertook an elaborate operation to find Mr. Poteyev, forcing a scientist from Oaxaca, Mexico, to help. The scientist, Hector Alejandro Cabrera Fuentes, was an unlikely spy. He studied microbiology in Kazan, Russia, and later earned a doctorate in the subject from the University of Giessen in Germany. He was a source of pride for his family, with a history of charitable work and no criminal past. But the Russians used Mr. Fuentes’s partner as leverage. He had two wives: a Russian living in Germany and another in Mexico. In 2019,...

    Russian agent 'betrayed spy ring for money' A top Russian secret service agent suspected of blowing the cover of a sleeper spy ring in the United States was a heavy drinker who betrayed Moscow purely to make money, sources said on Wednesday. Alexander Poteyev, who will go on trial in absentia for treason in Moscow on May 16, is charged with having tipped off Washington about a ring of 10 Russian spies who were later deported in the biggest post-Cold War spy scandal. The Izvestia daily Wednesday published a slew of new information about Poteyev, saying he was linked to...
  • US failure in Iraq opened the door for China, Russia

    03/20/2023 4:05:57 AM PDT · by FarCenter · 14 replies
    Twenty years ago, the United States invaded Iraq, with then-president George W Bush describing it as a necessary act “to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.” A few weeks later, Bush boasted that the war was a success because US troops had ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and routed his army. Bush landed on an American aircraft carrier and wore a Tom Cruise-style, Top Gun Air US Force outfit – thus orchestrating the most grandiose photo op in US history. “The tyrant has fallen, and Iraq is free,” he announced as he spoke beneath a...

    My initial introduction to the CIA was through the medium of film and literature. The spy versus spy mystique was alluringly romantic, with a definite ‘good versus evil’ vibe. I grew up, after all, during the Cold War, where the ‘red menace’ permeated every fiber of American popular culture. I opted to serve my country in the military, and not as a spy, receiving a commission in the Marine Corps in 1984 as an intelligence officer. My specialty was combat, not espionage, and it seemed that my path and that of the premier American intelligence agency were never to cross....

    Some of you probably remember Scott Ritter from the Iraq war regarding WMD... or more accurately the lack of WMD in Iraq. This is a great interview where Mr. Ritter goes into the details about Ukraine. This video has been banned on YouTube and across the EU. Which means it has real and relevant information that is meant to educate rather than propagandize.
  • Schröder blames Georgia for crisis with Russia

    08/16/2008 7:31:37 PM PDT · by Tailgunner Joe · 37 replies · 193+ views ^ | 16 Aug 08
    Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has criticized Georgia for the war over South Ossetia, calling Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili a gambler, and warning against allowing the country to join NATO. In an interview with Der Spiegel magazine due out on Monday, Schröder said he thought Georgia’s chances of joining the transatlantic alliance had moved “even further into the distance,” following the fighting with Russian forces. Schröder’s comments are sure to be scrutinized due to his close personal and political friendship with former president and current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, as well as his acceptance of a Gazprom job immediately after leaving...

    Paul Volcker, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve under Presidents Carter and Reagan who later played a role in the Obama administration's response to the financial crisis of 2009, has died at the age of 92. Multiple media outlets reported that Volcker, who raised interest rates as the Fed's chief to combat inflation, had died. In the Obama years, Volcker reemerged to tout a rule, eventually called the Volcker rule, that put tougher constraints on big banks.

    POSTED BY ED MORRISSEY Barack Obama has selected Gregory Craig as White House counsel, a move that will recall some controversial legal cases over the last few years. Craig has plenty of experience in politics as well as the courtroom, having served as Bill Clinton’s legal counsel during the impeachment hearings. Craig flipped from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama early in the primaries, and Obama has repaid his support — but Craig’s caseload will raise a few eyebrows: Gregory B. Craig, a well-known Washington lawyer who quarterbacked President Bill Clinton’s impeachment defense, has been chosen White House counsel by President-elect...

    Kofi Annan, a soft-spoken and patrician diplomat from Ghana, who became the seventh secretary general of the United Nations, projecting himself and his organization as the world’s conscience and moral arbiter despite bloody debacles that left indelible stains on his record as a peacekeeper, died on Saturday. He was 80. His death, after a short illness, was confirmed by his family in a statement from the Kofi Annan Foundation, which is based in Switzerland. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001, he was the first black African to head the United Nations, and led the organization for two successive five-year...
