5/16/22 Ben Freeman on the Links Between Foreign Governments and America’s Foreign Policy “Experts”

 Download Episode. Scott interviews Ben Freeman about the money governments like Saudi Arabia and Ukraine invest in D.C. lobbying. They begin by discussing the Middle East Institute, a Saudi-funded D.C. Think Tank that brands itself as an objective institution studying the Middle East when, in reality, its “experts” always happen to argue for what the Saudi regime desires. They then turn to the rest of the world and observe how awful and dangerous the rhetoric coming out of D.C. think tanks is concerning Russia and China.      Discussed on the show: “Gulf funded think tank turns...

By Banning Russian Oil, Europe Forgot How It Won the Cold War

51626803467 abee695cf6 c

The European Union is close to reaching an agreement on banning the import of Russian oil. Some Eastern-European member states, particularly Hungary, are trying to obtain exemptions or delays on the implementation of the ban. All in all, however, it seems likely that many if not all EU members will soon agree to ban Russian crude oil completely within the next six months, while refined oil would be phased out by the end of 2022. The ban is only the latest EU disciplinary economic measure which the bloc has levelled against Russia. On February 24, the starting day of the Russian invasion...

Released FBI Document Asserts Saudi Embassy Employee Connected to 9/11

Over the past several months, the FBI released thousands of pages of material relating to its investigation of Saudi government links to the 9/11 attacks. This wave of declassifications was pursuant to Executive Order 14040, which President Biden issued on Sept. 3 under pressure from more than 1,800 survivors, family members and first responders who threatened to protest his presence at memorial events if he didn’t make good on a 2020 campaign promise to boost 9/11 transparency. The published documents are riddled with redactions, but a Stark Realities review of the trove has uncovered...

The Long, Lucrative, and Bloody Road to World War III

representative adam kinzinger at hudson institute

Well, this war in Ukraine will last "months and years." At least, that is what the leaders of the D.C. foreign policy blob, the media, President Joe Biden’s men, Pentagon and NATO leadership have decided. Their plan is to pour oil on the flames and keep the fire raging. Also, Americans are going to have to cough up the dough for another massive aid package, with $20 billion worth of weapons to keep the blood flowing. In total, this next package will cost the taxpayer $33 billion. With Biden’s proposed $813 billion “defense” budget for 2023, the U.S. is spending more on the military and...

Why Do Our Neighbors Support War with Russia?

russia commentaries getty hero

In the world today, the war in Ukraine is the worst thing happening, right? Not really, that would actually be Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen, the Middle East’s poorest nation. In the Yemen war, now beginning its eighth year, Washington and its satellites Riyadh and Abu Dhabi have been directly responsible for the callous bombing and destruction of civilian infrastructure. This ceaseless brutality combined with the Saudi’s full naval blockade, according to UN numbers, has led to more than 377,000 people killed. This figure includes the starvation deaths of at least 263,900 babies and...
