Our policy on global affairs places peace and agreement at the highest level of strategy. We support current American foreign policy in Tibet, Southeast Asia and the South China Sea, while advocating a reversal of prevailing US policy toward Russia, Ukraine, and the Middle East. The topic of current primary interest is Ukraine, and most articles on the Global Affairs topic will deal with this conflict.
The founders of this site advocate a strong partnership of mutual respect with the Russian Federation, a withdrawal of support for the war effort of the standing Ukraine government, and immediate peace and self-determination for the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics, formerly oblasts of east Ukraine.
We also advocate the peaceful and cooperative containment of China with regard to any attempted expansion of power, particularly on the periphery of the South China Sea, and call for China’s full respect for the sovereignty of Tawain, and its complete withdrawal from the former sovereign territories of Tibet and Xinjiang. We also call for US cooperation with Russia in creating a trilateral stable balance of world powers.
We advocate as well adherence by Israel to UN mandates and the full right of sovereignty for Palestinians in their own homeland. In addition, we support Israel’s right to exist, and its full security with UN mandated boundaries. Important also are the prompt end to US military involvement in the Middle East, and enhanced cooperation with Russia toward diplomatic solutions to these conflicts.
On April 12, 2018, I tried to post two comments at The Duran using the word “Zionist”. Both comments were held for moderation. I reposted them using the spelling “Zyahneest”. The comments were published. Apparently The Duran uses automated software to censor free discussion of Zionism. On April 22 I was again moderated, and my well-meaning comment, on a completely different topic, was deleted. I must be on a blacklist. So who owns The Duran?
— Karl Pomeroy, Chief Editor, Quemado Institute
Quemado Institute editor Karl Pomeroy received a legal threat today in response to a comment he posted on the Russia Insider website about the rise of the R********d banking family. The comment did not mention race, but was of historical content. The threatener accused Karl of “spreading Nazi propaganda,” then repeated the full text of the German Criminal Code Section 130, which outlaws inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins,” which Karl’s comment did not do. A similar law, it was claimed, is now in force in 11 other European countries and carries a penalty of up to five years. The wording of the law is so vague, it could be applied to any criticism of those in power. If a political analyst can accidentally “violate” this totalitarian decree, there is no freedom of speech or press in Europe.
