BEAUTIFUL BELGRADE: A CITY ON TWO MIGHTY RIVERS SPARKLES AT NIGHT FROM KALEMEGDAN FORTRESS

It has been years since I walked along the walls of the Kalemegdan fortress. This Turkish structure built on the walls of the Roman city (Singidunum) has always symbolized the indestructibility and resilience of the Serbian nation. After a 500-year darkness under the Turkish sultans and pashas, the Serbs threw off the Ottoman yoke in early 19th century and created their own kingdom. Kalemegdan became a symbol of Serbian victories over three mighty empires – the Ottoman, the Austrian and the German. In 1928, on the 10th anniversary of that victory, a huge monument was unveiled. Dubbed the Victor, the Serbian warrior is holding a hawk in his left hand, symbolizing vigilance and watchful eye pointed toward the former Austrian empire, and a sword in the right hand, ready to defend again his country if necessary.

UTTER DISREGARD FOR BICYCLE RIDERS AND CIVILIANS

UTTER DISREGARD FOR BIKE RIDERS AND PEDESTRIANS Let's sum it up. In Belgrade, bike riders and pedestrians are like dirt. Free game for builders and drivers. The communist mindset which puts machines ahead of the individuals and nature is still present. Twenty years ago, a Serbian politician (Djindjic) tried to be different. His government built this beautiful bike path and opened the river to the citizens of Belgrade. Alas, it was all for naught. Because the current authorities are again allowing the construction companies to put machine ahead of man. And they are still allowing reckless drivers to get away with endangering the riders on bike paths. There are never any police in sight there while plenty of them are seen handing out parking tickets or wasting time on other petty offenses. Bottom line: BIKERS BEWARE! Belgrade does not want you.

THE “EU” WAS HITLER’S IDEA SHOVED DOWN THE THROATS OF EUROPEANS AS A PANACEA BY THE US AND ITS EURO-VASSALS

THE "EU" WAS HITLER'S IDEA SHOVED DOWN THE THROATS OF EUROPEANS AS A PANACEA BY THE US AND ITS EURO-VASSALS SUCH A CENTRALIZATION OF POWER IS REGRESSIVE BY DEFINITION AND CANNOT BE SUSTAINED IN THE INFORMATION ERA The creation of the European Union has been the biggest marketing coup and the worst PR fraud ever perpetrated in the history of business and mankind. This writer hinted at that his articles in 1995 and 1998 (see below). But recent stunning revelations cast a new light on this mega-deception. The whole thing was Hitler's idea which the US and European post-WW II bankers sold to the naive and unsuspecting people of Europe as an economic panacea. Instead of the golden noose that the EU really is. So any nation which is a part of the EU, or aspires to become one, should know that they are walking in Hitler's footsteps with a global bankers' noose around its neck.

RIO TINTO “DEPORTED” FROM SERBIA

RARE VICTORY OF PEOPLE OVER GOVERNMENT? BUT BEWARE OF THE DEVIL YOU DON’T KNOW Every once in a while there is some good news that warms the cockles of one's heart. It is very rare these days anywhere in the world to see that democracy actually words in fact and nor just in word. But this morning's headline news was an apparent victory of the Serbian people over their government. In short, the Serbian people must be mindful of that old saw - "the devil you know is better than the devil you don't." By forging a tight relationship with China, Serbia may once again find itself in a crossfire of an economic, if not a shooting, war between the West and China.

THERE’S CHINA AND THERE’S THE REST OF THE WORLD

The economies of Spain, Canada, Britain, France, Russia, Mexico and Italy should be in the toilet by now, according to the 1994 World Bank "Weltanschauung". On the other hand, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia and India should have grown by 100% to 250% in the last three decades. No argument with the latter postulate. But we took issue with the former and offered our own 25-year forecast in a short editorial "End of Western Dominance?" A major flaw in World Bank's logic is the assumption that the leading economies of the 21st century will be industrial.  They will not. The industrialists of the 21st century will be the farmers of the 20th century!  (i.e., low on the food chain). The economies of the 21st century will be an information-driven mixture of arts and sciences. And smaller economies will outperform the largest ones. As can be seen from these New Year's light and laser shows, the computer technology and the internet have not only "empowered the individuals and small companies to compete with giant enterprises on a level playing field," as we predicted earlier, they have also enabled small countries to compete globally on a fairer basis.

SERBIA: GETTING IN BED WITH A DEVIL FOR A SONG

Rio Tinto has been waging war on nature for a century and a half If one were to describe succinctly what kind of business Rio Tinto is in, it would be DESTRUCTION OF NATURE. War on people, war on animals, war on trees and shrubs. Why? So Rio Tinto would turn a profit off the minerals they dig up – copper, silver, gold, diamonds, uranium… and now the almighty LITHIUM. Nature be damned. And now, Serbia is offering its Jadar region as the next rape victim.

AN AMERICAN FROM SERBIA: “THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT”

AN AMERICAN FROM SERBIA: "THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT" WILL NOTHING EVER CHANGE IN SERBIA? (for the better) So the Serbian cauldron is boiling again. People are in the streets protesting against the regime, and the police and government goons are beating them again. Just as happened in 1968 when the Belgrade students rose up against the communist dictator #1 (Tito). And again in 1996 when the Belgrade students and others marched against the communist dictator #2 (Milosevic). Only this time, the young and the old are united in their protests against the Vučić regime and his Serbian Progressive Party.

NEW YORK TIMES’ “LIBERAL” BIAS RECONFIRMED

HOW DID THE POOR HAITIAN MIGRANTS GET TO DEL RIO, TEXAS? WHO ORGANIZED AND PAID FOR THEIR TREACHEROUS 2,000-3,000-MILE JOURNEY? The New York Times once proudly displayed a tagline “all the truth that’s fit to print.” That went by the wayside a long time ago. Now the appropriate tagline should be “all the truth that fits our opinions.” This story is just the latest example.

AN AMERICAN IN SERBIA: WHAT LIVING IN BELGRADE IS LIKE AFTER 50+ YEARS IN AMERICA

Three years ago, I arrived in Serbia. The idea was to see what living in my native city for about six months would be like after spending half a century in America. Well, the best laid plans of mice and men… Three months after my arrival, a temporary living arrangement became a permanent wedlock. I married my landlady. I grew a beard. I still wear it. I lost some weight. Healthier food and lifestyle, I suppose. Those were some of the good things. The rest… well, it was a culture shock. So much rudeness. So much senseless bureaucracy. So much unnecessary regulation. So much intolerance. Now we have been back in Belgrade for a fourth summer/fall in a row. I’ve already shared with you a number of stories which document the progression of Serbia into a police state and an economy driven by washed up drug and human trafficking money. And slowed down by nonsensical regulation. Now I want to share with you some of the good sides of the Serbian capital – Belgrade. Such as its beautiful location at the confluence of two big European rivers – the Danube and Sava.

SERBIA: THE MOST RECKLESS COUNTRY

of the highest vaccinated countries in the world. Now Covid is raging in Serbia while vaccinations seem to have slowed. As a result, Serbia is now the worst country in terms of the anti-vaxxer index. What makes Serbia the worst country? First and foremost, recklessness and ignorance of the anti-vaxxers. But there's also a possibility that the Chinese vaccines, which are the most prevalent in Serbia, may not be as effective as the American Pfizer or Moderna ISRAEL PUZZLE: A HIGHLY VACCINATED COUNTRY WITH HIGH COVID INFECTIONS

LIFE AFTER CORONA: WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?

CORONA TO PUT FINAL NAIL IN INDUSTRIAL ERA’S COFFIN WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM HISTORY? As we speak, the coronavirus has infected less than 3.5 million people globally and killed 246,000. The deadliest pandemic in history – the Spanish Flu of 1918 – killed over 50 million people – more than the World War I (17 million victims). While it is prudent to take precautions – such as practice social distancing, wear masks and gloves – we must not surrender ourselves to fear and panic. Because the mass media and the “liberal” (pink-socialist) politicians want to use this crisis to achieve something they never could in a free society – autocracy.
