Danger to US – How Truly Close are Russia and Iran?

The US and Iran are embroiled in a recent escalated conflict, ever since the death of Iran’s Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani. He was killed in a drone strike at the Baghdad Airport. Iran retaliated by striking US bases in Iraq. There is talk in the Russian media of Russia supplying C-400 weapon systems to Iraq. The information came from a member of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The S-400 Triumf, previously known as the S-300PMU-3, is an anti-aircraft weapon system developed in the 1990s by Russia’s Almaz Central Design Bureau as an upgrade of the S-300 family. It has been in service with the Russian Armed Forces since 2007.

The Rise and Fall of Social Media Influence Against Totalitarian Regimes

Social media has become part of our daily lives, from reading breaking news, to communication for business and personal purposes. It is an important tool for many in their daily lives, no matter how one uses it. It is also a dangerous tool, where one can have their life ruined. People have lost jobs over their posts, as well as being targeted and bullied on social media platforms. Some take it upon themselves to label other people online with the false narrative of being trolls (even though the profiles are legit!), just to cause turmoil.

Putin’s Use of Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact to Glorify Stalin – Dark Times Ahead?

In a historic move, Russia released the original copy of The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact two months ago. However, the question remains: What is the Kremlin’s end game? Russia’s social media propaganda machine has been very busy spinning the narrative of a Russian sphere of influence using constant subliminal messages.

Russia Meddling in US Elections 2.0

On June 30th a white paper was released that had been compiled for the American defense establishment. The title is Russsian Strategic Intentions, A Strategic Multiplayer Assessment dated May 2019. The analysis was compiled by some of the top-level research analysts within the US defense sector.

The key point, or thesis, of this paper is that after 20 years of the Putin regime, Russia is as hostile and as expansionist minded as they were during the Soviet era. However, since many western nations are not successfully fighting ideological propaganda from Russian sponsored channels, an escalation of the military conflict is highly likely.

The World We Live In – Technology is Not Bringing Us Together

Today is July 7, 2019 and the world we live in is in complete disarray. Real is not real. Fake is in. Petty has replaced common sense along with common decency. We have a crook in the oval office; and not a good one may I add.

Everything revolves around social media likes and comments. The world is at a point where doing something “out of the kindness of your heart” has to be documented for a later release. It seems as if love has lost the ongoing battle to vanity.

Russian Propaganda Targets US Cyber Warfare

The year is 1984, and Ronald Regan and Mikhail Gorbachev faceoff over nukes and the fate of the world…

The year is 2019, and what is old is new again.

The US strategic programs utilized during the Soviet era and the Cold War are making a huge comeback. An example would be QRHELPFUL, the program used by the CIA to install a western style of governance in Poland. A new Russian law taking effect in November 2019, is meant to further isolate western sources via the Russian internet. The law’s supporters are targeting Russian citizens with fear mongering and claiming the US is going on the offensive. When in reality the US is securing counter measures due to Russian information warfare attacks on the West.
