    LONDON, July 17 (Reuters) - The Ukraine war shows that the West's dominance is coming to an end as China rises to superpower status in partnership with Russia at one of the most significant inflection points in centuries, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said. The world, Blair said, was at a turning point in history comparable with the end of World War Two or the collapse of the Soviet Union: but this time the West is clearly not in the ascendant. "We are coming to the end of Western political and economic dominance," Blair said in a lecture entitled...

    Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has questioned the West’s strategy of taking military action against Russia off the table in the conflict in Ukraine, arguing that the punitive sanctions taken against Vladimir Putin’s regime have failed to detering the ongoing war. Writing in a blog post for the Tony Blair Institute, the Iraq War architect questioned whether it was “sensible” to rule out the military option against Russia, despite concerns that such actions could trigger a third World War over the former Soviet territory. While Blair said that he “understands and accepts” that there is no political will for...

    Former prime minister Sir Tony Blair has said in an interview that he thought his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were the “right thing” to do at the time. Blair, who served as Prime Minister from 1997 to 2007, seemingly attempted to justify his controversial role in the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq by saying that, at the time, he thought it was the “right thing” to do.
  • Tony Blair: Petition to block knighthood tops 600,000 signatures

    BBC ^ | Jan 5 | BBC
    More than 600,000 people have signed a petition calling for former Prime Minister Sir Tony Blair to have his knighthood removed. The ex-Labour leader, who was in power from 1997 to 2007, was given the title as the New Year's Honours were awarded. But the petition complains that his role in the Iraq war makes him "personally responsible" for many deaths and accuses him of "war crimes". Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said Sir Tony had "earned" a knighthood. And a government minister said it was "only right" to reward the former prime minister, who had done "many good things"...

    Tony Blair has said it is clear America has a "very limited appetite for military engagement" and that other Western nations need to figure out how to deal with "radical Islam" without the US. The former prime minister called on world leaders to come together to develop a common strategy against extremists ahead of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. In a speech to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) military think tank, he said "radical Islam" continues to represent a "first-order security threat" that left unchecked "will come to us". ..."Like revolutionary communism, it operates in many...

  • The Left's illusion of a Biden presidency has been shattered

    Tony Blair’s condemnation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan – based, he wrote, upon an “imbecilic political slogan about ending the ‘forever wars’”, which just happens to be what Joe Biden ran on in 2020 – marks the complete transformation of elite perceptions of the Biden presidency. The establishment consensus, desperate to be rid of Donald Trump, was that the veteran Democrat would be a return to stability. Instead, the haunting scenes of chaos at Kabul airport have led to denunciation even by Left-wing admirers – by almost every faction in the foreign policy debate, in fact, from those who think...

    The US withdrawal from Afghanistan was wrong and based on an "imbecilic" slogan, former PM Tony Blair has said. He described the decision to withdraw troops from the country as "tragic, dangerous and unnecessary". Mr Blair, who sent troops into Afghanistan 20 years ago, said UK involvement in Afghanistan was not a "hopeless endeavour" despite the Taliban takeover. And the sacrifice made by British troops "was not in vain", he added. Mr Blair said achievements in the country over the past 20 years - including a generation growing up without Taliban rule - was a "good cause" that "matters today,...

    It is increasingly obvious that other countries feel the same. There is already a host of initiatives starting around the world with this aim in mind. My Institute for Global Change is involved in many of them, including the CommonPass initiative from the World Economic Forum. Individual countries such as Greece, which is conscious of the huge impact of Covid on its tourist industry, are calling for global agreement on the issue. The African Union has started its own preparations. The airline and tourism industries are among those most anxious for such a passport. Tourism accounts for roughly ten per...
  • Tony Blair: 'Inevitable' global vaccine passports should be implemented now Otherwise predicts it will be 'more chaotic and difficult to manage'

    Former British Prime Minster Tony Blair has said that the British government should take advantage of the fact that it is to preside over the G7 this year to implement a global vaccine passport system. Blair’s globalist institute issued a report urging the UK government to “place the creation of a global Covid-19 travel pass as a key item” on the G7 agenda. In an interview with the Telegraph, the Iraq war architect himself stated that vaccine passports are “inevitable” and that British government needs to “take the initiative” using its “fortuitous” G7 presidency, and implement a “critical first step”...
  • Queen’s nephew Earl of Snowdon ‘named in Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous black book of contacts’ (w/ Jagger, Branson, Briatore, Blair)

    THE Queen's nephew the Earl of Snowdon appears to have been named in Jeffrey Epstein's infamous little black book of contacts. David Armstrong-Jones - better known as David Linley - seems to have been listed among a string of other high profile names compiled by the paedophile financier. There is no suggestion that the Earl has done anything wrong, or even had any kind of personal relationship with Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell. Mr Linley is the son of The Queen's sister Princess Margaret, is 21st in line to the throne, is an honorary chairman of auction house Christie's, and runs...

    The private-equity tycoon Stephen A. Schwarzman, backed by an array of mostly western blue-chip companies with interests in China, is creating a $300 million scholarship for study in China that he hopes will rival the Rhodes scholarship in prestige and influence. The programme, whose endowment represents one of the largest single gifts to education in the world and one of the largest philanthropic gifts ever in China, was announced by Mr. Schwarzman in Beijing on Sunday. The Schwarzman Scholars programme will pay all expenses for 200 students each year from around the world for a one-year master’s programme at Tsinghua...

    Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has airily dismissed U.S. President Donald Trump’s leadership during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, instead harking back to his work alongside Bill Clinton and Barack Obama as examples of how global inter-governmental cooperation can win the day. His remarks in an interview with NBC News last Friday followed an earlier intervention in the crisis when his own globalist think tank claimed it is “embedded in governments around the world,” as Breitbart News reported. In his most recent observations, he told NBC News he was worried about the lack of global coordination in tackling the crisis.

    Bill Clinton asked UK's Tony Blair to 'take a look at' fixing problem during 2000 'political season': document While Democrats have been calling for President Trump’s impeachment over his alleged soliciting of assistance from foreign countries ahead of the 2020 election, an unearthed comment from February 2000 might show stones were being thrown from glass houses. On his show Monday, Tucker Carlson discussed a transcript of a call between former President Bill Clinton and then-U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair -- the same year as the election pitting Clinton's vice president, Al Gore, against George W. Bush -- during which the...

    A newly unearthed batch of heavily redacted, classified emails from Hillary Clinton's personal email server revealed that the former secretary of state discussed establishing a "private, 100% off-the-record" back channel to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and that one of her top aides warned her that she was in "danger" of being "savaged by Jewish organizations, in the Jewish press and among the phalanx of neoconservative media" as a result of political machinations by "Bibi and the Jewish leadership." The 756-page group of new documents, revealed Thursday as part of a transparency lawsuit by Judicial Watch, seemingly contradicted Clinton's insistence...

The London Telegraph reports: Tony Blair has been accused of “unacceptable” behaviour after it emerged he has been briefing Emmanuel Macron on how to force Britain to stay in the EU.The former Labour prime minister believes that if the EU stands its ground over the Brexit deal, Parliament will cave in and accept a customs union - which would keep Britain yoked...

    Hillary Clinton popped back into the news cycle on Thanksgiving in the worst possible way, after the Guardian quoted her as saying, basically, that Europe needs to get harsher on migrants and refugees or else people like Donald Trump will keep winning elections. Just to reiterate this is a bad and terrible stance that only some kind of ultra-warped center-think could come up with. The interview took place before the midterms, according to the Guardian, and was published as part of the paper’s new “The New Populism” series, which might explain why they decided to drop the quotes on Thanksgiving...
