Can Trump Construct a New World Order?

Trump New World Order


By Prof. Efraim Inbar 

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 387

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Though he might be a novice in foreign policy, Donald Trump could bring about dramatic changes in the global arena by aligning with Russia against China. In this scenario, Russia would have an opportunity to align with Western civilization, ending a millennium-long schism. Will Russia be ready to end its cozy relations with the radical regime in Iran to become a true US ally in the fight against militant Islam?

Our World: The Left’s never-ending war

 Left policies rejected


With their policies rejected by voters, the purpose of the Left isn’t to govern. It is to render their societies ungovernable. The push among the American Left to discredit the results of last month’s presidential election entered a new phase last Friday with the White House’s announcement that outgoing US President Barack Obama has ordered US intelligence agencies to review evidence of Russian hacking in last month’s elections on behalf of President-elect Donald Trump.

What Can Go Wrong?

Trump Putin

By William Blum

 "Information Clearing House" - That he may not be “qualified” is unimportant. That he’s never held a government or elected position is unimportant. That on a personal level he may be a shmuck is unimportant.What counts to me mainly at this early stage is that he – as opposed to dear Hillary – is unlikely to start a war against Russia.

After two decades defined by growing integration, the global economy appears to be at an inflection point. This judgment has been prompted both by structural changes in the global economy, especially since the Great Recession, and political events over the past year illustrative of a backlash against past integration. Following one such event—the U.K.’s Brexit vote in June—The Economist magazine reported, in a funereal tone, that globalization now seems to be receding, inspiring comparisons with the rise and fall of globalization a century ago.[1]

West Already Weaponizing Fake News

Fake News

 By Finian Cunningham

 "Information Clearing House" - "Sputnik" - You really know that masses of people are living within a mind-control matrix when the greatest, most pervasive purveyors of fake news denounce others for the practice. And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy.
