On October 21, 2016 a typical Estonian school witnessed an opening ceremony of the bronze bust of Harald Nugiseks. He was an SS-Oberscharführer (Sergeant) in World War II, who served voluntarily in the 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the Waffen SS. According to the director of this education institution, the memory of Harald Nugiseks will lead to the increase in feelings of patriotism among students and must increase their willingness to protect their country in case of external aggression.
So who is this Nugiseks? – During the Second World War, he was awarded with the second highest military award in the Third Reich, the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross. Hitler did only grant this award to a total of 43 foreigners that were fighting on the side of Nazi Germany, which implies that he did something “extraordinary” from the point of view of the Third Reich. In 2008, Harald Nugiseks received a medal “from the grateful Estonian people.” This move was initiated by two local “patriotic” organizations – Club of Friends of the Estonian legionaries and Vaba-Sõltumatu Kolonn Nr.1 (The first independent column).
In July 2016 a member of the Latvian Seimas that represents the Latvian National Association, Aleksadrs Kirsteins made a proposal to the Mayor of Riga to erect a monument to Nazi soldiers, as he stated on his Twitter. Moreover, one of the most striking manifestations of the movement for the glorification of the Nazi forces of the Second World War is the traditional procession of veterans of the Latvian Waffen SS members and their supporters. Ever since 1994, every year on March 16 the center of Riga is being swarmed by former soldiers of the Waffen SS and their fans. But if in the mid-1990s those marches were mostly visited by old men, with each year one would spot an ever increasing number of young people.
The situation is being aggravated by European officials that are misleading people into believing that the Nazis were not as inhuman as they are being “presented” today. For example, a British disgraced academic and self-confessed fascist David Irving is reportedly heading tourist groups to sites in Poland such as Treblinka, and in Latvia, where Jews were exterminated. Irving has been inventing justifications to the crimes comitted by the Nazis in the WWII for a long while now. But what is striking is that Polish and Latvian authorities are completely fine with this sort of “tourism”, since after all such events are in line with the policies pursued by the authorities of those countries.
Why, they are not alone these days since we’ve been witnessing the glorification of fascism in Ukraine along with the attempts to honor such “heroes” as Stepan Bandera and Roman Shuhovich that have been known to the world as barbaric war criminals to this day. It seems that that the ticket to the European Union stinks of fascism. This ticket was used by the Baltic states, and tomorrow Kiev will do the same thing by obtaining the EU membership with an extensive amount of support provided by Washington.
As it has been reported by the German Der Spiegel, a group of Belgian doctors who are preoccupied with euthanasia, has visited a Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in order to comprehend how people may “die with dignity”. And this is hardly a joke, even though it’s hard to stomach the unprecedented level of cynicism demonstrated by the so-called “civilized world.”
So, does Europe tacitly approve fascism? And what could possibly happen to the sensible and tolerant Europeans after the Nuremberg Tribunal? But the most imporant question by far – who benefits from all this?
It is believed that the allied victory in World War II has put an end to fascism, but it hasn’t. Certain political forces overseas still perceive fascism and as a profitable venture, as they did before the Second World War.
At this point it’s clear that the roots of the most destructive war in human history should be sought in the US. The US economy that stumbled over the Great Depression was in dire need of one more war to revive the US economy, while Europe still struggled to rebuild its economy. When the war broke out, people started transferring their savings to the US. Thus, in October 1939 the US Federal Reserve was holding the gold equivalent of 17 million dollars, by February 1940, this amount increased up to a billion – in just four months!
It should also be noted that American corporations obtained great profits from financing the Third Reich, only to start supplying weapons and munitions to its anti-Hitler allies later on. When the war ended, the United States was “kind enough” to provide the war-torn European with loans and American goods.
The financial profits obtained by the US economy during the WWII was immediately converted into political influence. In 1947, the American Secretary of State George C. Marshall proposed the so-called Marshall Plan. It went into effect in 1948 and subjected 17 European countries to Washington’s rule, putting them under the direct financial and economic control of the United States.
Thus, the United States emerged after World War II as the richest country in the world, after having plundered, robbed and enslaved the better part of the world. It is also necessary to understand that America’s financial interests played a pivotal part in the preparation and fueling of the First World War. That’s how Washington has established its financial control over the planet.
Today, the US economy has stumbled yet again, with Washington’s national debt reaching the unbelievable sum of 19.5 trillion (or 108% of GDP). And it’s hardly a secret at this point that war is the best remedy for all of these problems.
So is it any wonder that war has become the trump card of the White House in recent years, which is actively being played in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and other regions.
As for Europe, it is being plunged in the tide of fascism once again, with Washington hoping that it can spark a civil conflict that would transform the Old Continent in an arena for a new Major War. That is why we are witnessing the glorification of fascism in the Baltic States, and Ukraine, which has a “special role” assigned to it in the future conflict.

This article was first published on October 19, 2014This week marks the three-year anniversary of the Western-backed assassination of Libya’s former president, Muammar Gaddafi, and the fall of one of Africa’s greatest nations.In 1967 Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands.After NATO’s intervention in 2011, Libya is now a failed state and its economy is in shambles. As ...

‘Blowing from a Gun’ depicted by Vasily Vereshchagin in his painting ‘Suppression of the Indian Revolt by the English’ on the rebellion of 1857. Queen Victoria’s agent bought this painting, in an attempt to suppress it. ‘Blowing from the Gun’ was a means of execution where the prisoner is tied to the muzzle of a cannon, which is then fired, popping the victim’s head about 15 meters (50 feet) into the air, apparently a sort of juvenile entertainment for the colonizers.Following colonization, along came ‘decolonization’ and what do you suppose happened with colonial borders? They mostly remained as laid down ...
“A famous American family” made its fortune from the Nazis, according to John Loftus’ documented historical analysis.
The Bush family links to Nazi Germany’s war economy were first brought to light at the Nuremberg trials in the testimony of Nazi Germany’s steel magnate Fritz Thyssen. Thyssen was a partner of George W. Bush’s grandfather Prescott Bush:
From 1945 until 1949 in Nuremberg, one of the lengthiest and, it now appears, most futile interrogations of a Nazi war crimes suspect began in the American Zone of Occupied Germany.
Multibillionaire steel magnate Fritz Thyssen-the man whose steel combine was the cold heart of the Nazi war machine-talked and ...

A Serb from Bosnia, General Mladic, protected Muslim civilians and gave them buses, food, and water to leave fighting zones. There was no genocide over the Muslim population in Srebrenica like mainstream media want you to believe – there was no genocide over Bosniaks because all Bosnian Muslims victims were jihad fighters who had been killed during fight (in war). Even the so-called „tribunal“ in The Hague for ex-Yugoslavia admitted that there was no genocide!The President of Bosnia-Herzegovina in the 1990s, Alija IzetbegovićIn Srebrenica, there was a massacre over Serbian civilians: the youngest victim was a 4 years old boy ...
There are 3 Apartheid Israel-related centenaries this week, namely (1) the victorious 31 October 1917 charge of the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba that led to conquest of Palestine by Britain and massive famine, (2) the nefarious and racist UK Balfour Declaration of 2 November 1917 that gave Palestine to Zionists as a Jewish Homeland as an inducement to help keep Russia in WW1, and (3) commencement of the Palestine Genocide (2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, or imposed deprivation, 1.9 million, since WW1).
History ignored yields history repeated and genocide ignored yields genocide repeated . Anniversaries are useful ...
“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” So Karl Marx wrote in 1843. For three generations over the course of the 20th century his atheist disciples violently sought to break their subjects of this “opium” addiction.They failed. In many though not all parts of the former communist bloc Christianity not only survived but provided the impetus for national and social revival. In some countries, like Poland, Hungary, and Lithuania, this meant Roman Catholicism. In others, like Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, and ...
As Europe’s longest ruler, it is a surprise that Milo Djukanovic is only 58. He has served as prime minister or president of various iterations of Montenegro since 1991 – spanning the collapse of Yugoslavia and across and beyond independence of the nation in 2006.What is the secret to Mr Djukanovic’s success? The answer is depressingly predictable: clientelism and the buying – or, depending on your perspective, stealing – of power.The beauty of Montenegro hides this ugly truth. Most know it as a tourist idyll with pristine beaches, crystal lakes and picturesque mountains. But holidaymakers rarely realize they enter less ...
Years ago, the terms “false flag” and “conspiracy theory” went hand in hand. Suggesting that a government would stage an attack on its own people or attack an ally and blame it on a “third party” was unthinkable.
This is despite the glaring fact that “false flags” have been going on since before biblical times and have been a part of every nation’s policy. Intelligence agencies exist to do little else, they plan and execute false flag attacks to influence policy and set the course of events, based on analysis. This is, in fact, their greatest single tool, and one used ...
It’s not a common occurrence to be able to have a court establish the guilt of a criminal 72 years after his death, but such an opportunity has emerged in Lithuania and will be taking place in a courtroom in Vilnius next week, more precisely on Wednesday, January 16 [2019, editor].Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaite: Shouting on Russia but keeping silence about Jonas NoreikaThe circumstances of the case are quite unusual. The charges against the alleged criminal were not brought forward by the government or its prosecutors, but rather by a private individual, who does not represent any political entity, but ...
The role of Jewish figures and that of the State of Israel in the Ukrainian crisis has not gone unnoticed considering that this community represents less than 1 percent of the population. However, a secret report in the hands of the Netanyahu administration confirms that Ashkenazi Jews do not originate from the Levant, but are the descendants of the Khazars. This little-known population founded a Jewish empire in the tenth century on the banks of the Black Sea. Therefore, some Zionists see in Ukraine a possible second Israel.The Times of Israel, an independent Israeli newspaper that counts among its staff ...
Is your money that good? Will it buy you forgiveness? Do you think that it could?” (Bob Dylan, b. 1941, Masters of War)
On Tuesday 6th of September, twenty-four hour monitoring by Yemen’s Legal Centre for Rights and Development (LCRD) recorded the bombings by the Saudi led “coalition”, armed by the US and UK and advised by their military specialists, thus collusion and co-operation of both countries render them equally culpable for the carnage.
Yemen has a population of just 24.41 million (2013 figure) and according to the Rural Poverty Portal:
“ … is one of the driest, poorest and least developed countries in ...
Last Thursday, news reports were largely devoted to the March 22 Brussels terror bombings and the US primary campaigns. And so little attention was paid to the verdict of the International Criminal Tribunal for (former) Yugoslavia (ICTY) finding Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic guilty of every crime it could come up with, including “genocide”. It was a “ho-hum” bit of news. Karadzic had already been convicted by the media of every possible crime, and nobody ever imagined that he would be declared innocent by the single-issue court set up in The Hague essentially to judge the Serb side in the ...
I spoke recently at a conference on America’s war party where afterward an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked, “Why doesn’t anyone ever speak honestly about the six-hundred-pound gorilla in the room? Nobody has mentioned Israel in this conference and we all know it’s American Jews with all their money and power who are supporting every war in the Middle East for Netanyahu? Shouldn’t we start calling them out and not letting them get away with it?”It was a question combined with a comment that I have heard many times before and my answer is always the same: ...
A peaceful dissolution of the USSR according to the agreement between Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in 1988 in Reykjavik brought a new dimension of global geopolitics in which up to 2008 Russia, as a legal successor state of the USSR, was playing an inferior role in global politics when an American Neocon concept of Pax Americana became the fundamental framework in international relations. Therefore, for instance, Boris Yeltsin’s Russia capitulated in 1995 to the American design regarding a final outcome of the USA/EU policy of the destruction of ex-Yugoslavia in November 1995 (the Dayton Agreement) followed by even worse ...
The present-day Republic of Turkey is a legal successor state of the former Ottoman Empire (Sultanate). The Republic was founded and proclaimed by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on October 29th, 1923 as a result of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after the lost WWI. A republican Turkey originally was based on the following six principles:Republicanism – Republic instead of a monarchical sultanate.Nationalism - An aggressive anti-minority policy within the state especially against the Kurds.Populism – It was attended in the atmosphere of the absence of a multiparty democracy to gather as much as popular support for the one-party political system.Statism ...
Unless Syria will simply hand its most heavily pro-jihadist province, Idlib, to adjoining Turkey, which claims to have 30,000 troops there and is planning to add 20,000 more, World War III will probably happen soon, and here is why:
Russia’s troops are in Syria at the invitation of Syria’s Government and they have provided crucial assistance to restore the Government’s control over areas that the jihadists (sometimes called “Radical Islamic Terrorists” or otherwise) had seized. Consequently, unlike the Turks and the Americans, who are invaders of Syria, Russia is instead a defender of Syria, and is committed to doing there only ...

The Catalan identity and Catalonia Catalans are the people who live in the territories of Spain in the autonomous-historical region called Catalonia. Their significance for the Spanish inner politics can be understood as the best if we know that Catalonia (Catalunya) is being since 1975 the most politically and economically powerful autonomous self-governed region in the Kingdom of Spain – during the last 20 years, basically, a kind of “a state within the state”. As a matter of fact, Catalans are the most integrated ethnohistorical groups of Spain together with Basques.What makes Catalans so interlinked could be understood if we know ...
