Veterans Today

  • Jim W. Dean talks to RT International
    Jim W. Dean - VT has been on RT twice now since the Politico article that fizzled out on our being a Russian subversion tool to use against American veterans. We are still getting "tease" emails from old friends and enemies.
  • Uri Avnery – Is a Political New Wave emerging with the Macron victory?
    Jim W. Dean - Uri obviously does not read VT or he would know our position that the international criminal network prefers to work with right wing governments as their profits are higher. But the gangsters can deal with liberals, if they have to.
  • INVASION ALERT! White Christian criminal hordes overrun America
    Clearly there is a correlation between Christians and crime as well as a correlation between Caucasians and crime.

  • The Great Fire In London
    There are lessons here about our lack of resilience. Goodness knows how they would have coped had two such fires started at the same time. As it turned out many of the ambulances weren’t needed, as so few survivors made it out of the building, but they weren’t to know how bad the death toll […]
  • US releases documents of Iran’s 1953 Coup

    While, the ideology of Hindutva (Hindu nationalism) is the genesis of Hindu terrorism, having co-relationship with it, the main fault lines of India’s politics is based upon the discriminatory system of caste and religion.

  • TOTAL GAMMA AND BETA RADS in 2010 YRTW No 22X
    All I can say about the Rad of the past is that the Rad Lethality gets worse the longer the Rad has time to "cook". This Property of Rad cannot be changed. All of life on Earth is radioactive by now and it only took about 70 years.

  • Local Elections in Cambodia: Wake Up Call for the Ruling Elites?
    At the beginning of the month Cambodia hosted local elections that precede parliamentary elections that are scheduled on the summer of 2018.

  • The West Argues that Muslims Represent a Major Threat, Or Do They?
    Upon witnessing what looks like an unending stream of terrorist attacks in Europe that was preceded by a major influx of refugees attempting to escape war and destruction that the West created across the Middle East and North Africa, it’s safe to say that Islamophobia is here to stay, at least among political circles in the […]

  • US Election Meddling: Smoke and Mirrors
    For a magician, the greater the illusion attempted, the more showmanship that’s required to distract audiences from that fact that it is indeed just an illusion.

  • Washington's "Good Terrorists, Bad Terrorists" Policy In Middle East
    Submitted by Nauman Sadiq, Karl Marx famously said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.

One of the more extraordinary developments since the U.S. presidential election is that the paranoia and the grotesque […]

  • The Big Collusion Narrative Keeps Melting Down
    Authored by David French via National Review, After two days and almost six hours of high-stakes public testimony, I’m struck by the total lack of any compelling claims supporting the “big” collusion narrative, that Russia conspired with Trump or Trump officials to “hack” election.
