On ‘Arab Spring’: My Analysis Seems Vindicated (so far, though)


https://geopoliticalintelligence.wordpress.com/selected-contemporary-political-essays-by-ss-salem/new-political-essays-draft-2/ The above link takes you to my ”selected contemporary political essays” (again, let me bring to your attention, these have not yet been edited as such, so do not be surprised with some grammar or other problems to be encountered).

The Renaissance of The ”Leftist International Terrorism”: First Up–Germans & The New Baader Meinhof offspring!


A conversation with Rainer Wendt these days is enough to make anybody nervous. Wendt is the head of the German Police Union, one of two police unions in the country. And he says that the recent series of attacks on German rail facilities in and near Berlin this week has convinced him that Germany is … Continue reading

On The Werrity-Fox Affair: Just Do Not Call It Corruption or Broken System (Back In Trend: Political Corruption In The West)!!!!


If you might recall, few weeks ago we discussed how when non-western states conduct themselves inappropriately the references to their behaviours are ‘negatively’ labelled for ‘what they might have be’, for example, Corruption, is Corruption with a Capital C, and so forth, and when the western democracies do the same, we have all these ‘adorable … Continue reading

Joke of the Day (Courtesy of D. N., with headlines)


I would like to thanks David N. for this joke, just absolute pure genius, he is a very intelligent man after all (google David Navarre for his account in the LinkedIn, if you need any of his professional services, I can assure you, one is in the good hands: yes a personal recommendation) anyway here … Continue reading

On Electoral Registry: The Single Most Significant Factor On The Democratic Deficiency/Fallacy


My argument, very briefly, is that the electoral registry is the single most significant factor accounting towards the Democratic Deficiency, or what I would rather prefer to refer to as Fallacy. Anyway, the point is, with all the so-called overwhelming victories down the generations towards electoral equalities, for example, the rights of ”all men”, then … Continue reading

A Political Analysis: Based Around My Jingle For The Modern Voter (copyrighted, ha)


I made up this little jingle for my political club social event: ”MINI-MINE-MORE, WHO SHOULD (WE) I VOTE FOR TODAY” You get it??? Since there is no longer perceptible differences between modern democratic parties, especially in the western states, for example in the US, the democrats resemble and fight harder and harder for republican ground, … Continue reading

Secondly, I have updated, hopefully for the last time my ”About Me” page, added ”strategy consultant”, as main professional description and role. Thirdly, these are few of the top-posts (as commented and polled by you) on my blog (please be aware that … Continue reading

On The Economics of Competitive National Advantages In Global Politics: Examined via a Statement of The Day (incl. Selected Headlines For You)


”US President Barack Obama has recently suggested that Europe must take on more debt to stimulate the economy. Such reliance on cheap money, though, is what got us into the current crisis in the first place — both in Europe and in the US. America’s problem isn’t too little money. It’s a lack of competitive … Continue reading
