Western leaders are missing another prime opportunity to butt out of the Middle East

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Iran lobbed a bunch of retaliatory missiles and drones at Israel over the weekend in what amounted to little more than a messaging exercise in the wake of Israel bombing its consulate in Syria. It was remarkably stunning for the damage that it didn’t do.

The tit-for-tat should end right here, but the usual ...Read more

The Latest Western Foreign Interference Inquiry is Turning Over the Wrong Rocks

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Canada is currently holding an inquiry into whether there was foreign interference in the two most recent federal elections, in 2019 and 2021. So far, it's everyone's fault – except those who have done the most actual damage.

The inquiry has heard allegations from the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service ...Read more

America’s Once Level-Headed Neighbor Needs an Intervention

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Does Canada have any adults left in charge? Serious question. What's with all the talk here about carbon taxes when inflation is so out of control that people are forced to consider the size of the hole that a pack of marshmallow Easter Peeps would blast in their budget? Starting on April 1, Canadians have to pay ...Read more

Moscow terror attack: A suspect list

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS — As I sat in Moscow, exactly two weeks before the March 22 terror attack on the Crocus City Hall concert venue in northwest Moscow that has, reportedly, killed more than 130 people and wounded at least 150 others, a U.S. embassy warning caught my attention.

“The Embassy is monitoring reports that extremists have imminent plans to ...Read more

A Westerner’s view from Moscow of Russia’s presidential election

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

MOSCOW – It just so happens that s pring hit on Election Day in Moscow. Massive mounds of piled-up snow lining the sidewalks, and any patches of ice that managed to dodge the permanent wintertime layer of rock salt, morphed into puddles as the temperature jumped from a windy -15C up to 6C in what seemed like the blink of an eye. It would ...Read more

Biden’s State of the Union viewed from Russia

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

MOSCOW — Unlike most folks here in Russia, who follow domestic American politics about as much as Americans care about the price of parking in Moscow, I subjected myself to U.S. President Joe Biden’s assessment of the current state of America. Which apparently also now includes Ukraine, Europe, and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Putin...Read more

Ukraine’s Running Out of Troops, but the Solution is Obvious

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

MOSCOW — Western media has been sounding the alarm on the desperate shortage of Ukrainian manpower to fight Russia. Sounds like it’s time for those who keep insisting on continued war over negotiated peace to head over there themselves — starting with our own Western establishment warmongers, who have been pratfalling toward even more ...Read more

Tear-gassed cows and a president fleeing irate farmers mark agriculture show marred by globalism

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS — The Paris International Agricultural Fair is historically a convenient photo op for French presidents. They get to walk around and sample the Made in France delicacies while petting livestock and promoting France’s entrepreneurial farming. But this year, we’re a long way from the days of former President Jacques Chirac smiling down...Read more

Intelligence Assessment Targeting the Freedom Movement Gets it Wrong

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS — The Freedom Movement that took shape during the Covid-19 circus risks being spun off into other kinds of activism targeting “perceived tyranny” and “overreach” by governments. That’s the assessment of the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS) in a report dated April 2023, recently obtained by the Canadian Press ...Read more

Trump’s idea of using Putin to shakedown allies isn't shocking – it's already reality

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS — Former US President Donald Trump just suggested that he’d use Russian President Vladimir Putin as a shakedown artist against allies in a sort of protection racket. Those criticizing the remarks, and even Trump himself, may be surprised to learn that this is already effectively happening.

Speaking at a campaign rally in South ...Read more

Biden is bombing the Middle East using the same excuses for which Trump was lambasted

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS — Does anyone recall the U.S. Congress voting on behalf of the American people to bomb three different Middle Eastern countries this month? Of course not. Because that’s never how things are done. Instead, what ends up happening is that an American president — Joe Biden, most recently — just unilaterally lobs some missiles onto ...Read more

French Farmers Wield Tractors Against a Dystopian Nightmare

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

BUCHELAY, France — Even when desperate to get protesting farmers and their tractors off the highways, globalist Western “elites” can’t overcome their tone-deafness.

About 100 tractors from the Normandy and Greater Paris regions blockaded a major highway leading to and from the capital, about 50 km northwest of Paris, last Friday, ...Read more

A New Conflict is Brewing Between Russia and a Top U.S. Ally

From the Right / Rachel Marsden /

PARIS — As approval for any further billions of American taxpayer cash to Ukraine stalls in Congress, one of Washington’s top allies sees an opportunity for its own military industrial complex to cash in on the racket.

“The war economy is an opportunity for our industrialists. They have every interest in these tensions, because the ...Read more
