[ParanoidTimes] Does 'Washington' Intend War With Russia ? – PCR Interviewed by The Saker

The Saker: It has become rather obvious to many,
if not most, people that the USA is not a
democracy or a republic, but rather a plutocracy
run by a small elite which some call "the 1%".
Others speak of the "deep state". So my first
question to you is the following. Could you please
take the time to assess the influence and power of
each of the following entities one by one. In

The interests of these interest groups coincide
with those of the neoconservatives. The
neoconservative ideology supports American
financial and military-political imperialism or

There is no independent American print or TV
media. In the last years of the Clinton regime,
90% of the print and TV media was concentrated in
6 mega-companies. During the Bush regime, National
Public Radio lost its independence. So the media
