“Let Maas’s new world order of multipolarity and balance ring out. It’d save America much money and many lives, being able to hand off some responsibilities to capable allies. Unfortunately, though, the Germans are kidding themselves if they believe they’ll be able to achieve this in Europe – not without a great power backing their play (and that great power is notFrance). They will be forced to choose between the United States and Russia. I suspect that Berlin will ultimately end up in the United States’ camp.”
France For All Or France For the French?
With the pending French presidential election on May 7, I argue that the election is about whether France will be “for all” or for the French. I estimate Marine Le Pen, the Right-wing nationalistic-populist, has a 60% chance of winning.
The Netherlands Election: European Nationalism Is Not Waning
The recent election of the pro-EU, center-Right Mark Rutte and his VVD Party in the Netherlands is not a bellwether for the future of Europe. Indeed, it is the last gasp of a dying European establishment.
It’s Samuel P. Huntington’s World and We’re Just Fighting In It
The world has fragmented. Globalization is at an end. Localism, nationalism, and populism is on the rise and there is no turning it back. People like Samuel Huntington predicted this new world disorder, where culture, religion, and ethnicity carry more weight than postmodern philosophy and economics. See why it’s Samuel P. Huntington’s world and we’re just fighting in it
VLOG: The Breakdown of the State
In this VLOG, I discuss the trend of anti-globalization, nationalism, and populism responding to the perceived failures of Neoliberalism and Globalization, as well as the breakdown of the social contract between the governed and those who govern in countries throughout the world. These trends are not going away
VLOG: Toward A North American Superstate?
In this VLOG, I discuss the possibilities of Albertan secession to the U.S., but also the need for a greater alliance between the U.S., UK, and Canada.
Expect Marine Le Pen To Be France’s Next President
In this SPECIAL REPORT, I explain why Marine Le Pen is likely going to be the next French President. Don’t believe me? If I weren’t right then why are French news agencies saying that they will no longer report presidential polls for the duration of the French presidential election? Read more to find out why!
VLOG: Putin In Eastern Ukraine
This VLOG is a response to people who have responded to my most recent article on the need for President-elect Trump to combat Vladimir Putin with time and resolve.
Trump Will Need to Combat Russia’s Coming Test of His Leadership With Time & Resolve
The U.S. does not have the force posture capable of resisting a Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine. Putin knows this. As such, he will test President Trump early in his administration. Trump will likely make a deal with Putin in the near-term for concessions here. But, I suspect, once President Trump completes his military expansion and force modernization, he will begin fully resisting Russian aggression. Time and resolve, therefore, is the best answer to Russian revanchism.
