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.

WE CAN LEARN FROM CHINA HOW TO CONTAIN CORONAVIRUS, NOT BLAME IT FOR IT

Some people are blaming China for the coronavirus crisis, claiming they are using it because they want to "rule the world." Certain American politicians, Donald Trump among them, are helping incite hatred against the Chinese calling by calling COVID-19 the "China Virus." Instead, there is much to be admired about how bravely and wisely the Chinese confronted this invisible enemy which attacked them first. And now, while the rest of the world is gripped in fear, the Chinese are sending planeloads of medical materiel and lending their own expertise to countries like Italy, France, Belgium, USA and others.

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

Buying a car in Serbia: NIGHTMARE ON FOUR WHEELS About one year 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 nearly half a century in America. Well, best laid plans of mice and men... Three months after my arrival, I married my landlady. A temporary living arrangement became a permanent wedlock. 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 intolerance. So much senseless bureaucracy. So much paper. So many loose cats and dogs. After seven months in Belgrade, my wife and I went back to Arizona. We spent four months at our Scottsdale home. This time, it was my wife's turn to experience a reverse culture shock - that of kindness with which everyone treated her. And how neat and clean everything was. Now we are back in Belgrade for the summer. And the culture shock continues for me.
