where’s the truth in Crimea?

Crimea and Ukraine: Whose Cold War?   Abdallah Schleifer I never thought the day would come when I would have to turn to Russian media to get a sense of what was going on somewhere in the world. But just for a start, look at the videos on Youtube from Russia Today, the 24/7 Russian English language news channel. Videos up on Youtube of scenes in Kiev’s Maidan square in the weeks before President Yanukovich fled the city, as the predominantly ultra-nationalist and neo-fascist frontline fighting force of the demonstrators smashed their way into government buildings. And that is what you see – Ukrainian riot police, unarmed, hiding under their shields as they are pelted with rocks and fire bombs […]

spreading democracy everywhere … but Crimea

The rhetoric is always about the wonderful USofA war machine spreading democracy around the world. Except today. Except in Crimea. THERE, it turns out, is an exception to the wonders of democracy. World War III, economic Armageddon and slaughter of millions is preferable to democratic rule in Crimea. The USofA (with no economic problems of its own) has pledged over one million thousand dollar bills to bribe and coerce Ukraine and Crimea into toeing their line. Not to mention the military planes, ships, guns and operatives to do some serious killing for democracy … oops, I mean non-democracy in this case, though I’m not sure what they would have me call it. You might have been fooled by your televisions, […]

yellow journalism exposed

I share the first part of Paul Craig Roberts’ article here. Click the link to read its entirety. ———————————————————————- The Two Superpowers: Who Really Controls the Two Countries? Among the ruling interests in the US, one interest even more powerful than the Israel Lobby—the Deep State of the military/security complex— there is enormous fear that an uncontrollable President Trump at the upcoming Putin/Trump summit will make an agreement that will bring to an end the demonizing of Russia that serves to protect the enormous budget and power of the military-security complex. You can see the Deep State’s fear in the editorials that the Deep State handed to the Washington Post (June 29) and New York Times (June 29), two of […]

shattering the American greatness myth

Memorial Day THIS  by DavidSwanson from Washington’s Blog “Memorial Day is a time to remember, appreciate, and honor the selfless patriots who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to freedom. At a time when our country seems so divided, we must not forget that it is because of their service and sacrifice that we live in the most free and prosperous nation on Earth.” —Congressman Tom Garrett It would be difficult to count all of the lies in the above statement. Let’s just highlight a few. Let’s start with “most free.” The British-based Legatum Institute, which ranks the United States 18th in overall “prosperity,” ranks it 28th in “personal freedom.”[i] The U.S.-based Cato Institute ranks the United States 24th […]

poking the bear

from Paul Craig Roberts Another Step Toward Armageddon “…It is reckless and irresponsible for Washington to make such a decision in the wake of years of aggressive actions taken against Russia. The Clinton criminal regime broke Washington’s promise that NATO would not move one inch to the East. The George W. Bush criminal regime pulled out of the ABM Treaty and changed US war doctrine to elevate the use of nuclear weapons from retaliation to first strike. The Obama criminal regime launched a frontal propaganda attack on Russia with crazed Hillary’s denunciation of President Putin as “the new Hitler.” In an effort to evict Russia from its naval base in Crimea, the criminal Obama regime overthrew the Ukrainian government during […]

Ukraine reminder

Participants in 2014 Ukrainian coup confess from Washington’s Blog Posted on November 17, 2017 by Eric Zuesse. Eric Zuesse The overthrow of the democratically elected President of Ukraine in February 2014 was one of the most important geostrategic occurrences during the past century, because it led to the breakaway from Ukraine of the two regions — Crimea and Donbass — that had been the most opposed to the overthrow, and that had voted over 75% for the President who had been overthrown. And those two breakaways from Ukraine were then presented in the U.S.-allied “The West” as having resulted from ‘Russian aggression’, which then became punished, first by economic sanctions against Russia, and then by massive NATO military buildups […]

showtime vs realtime

Mainstream media and ghosts of presidencies past are scurrying into dark corners hoping the “Uranium One” scandal will blow over. Many of us are rooting for it to blow up on the Teflon Couple and their slimy co-conspirators. They fear Trump for good reason. He has not run cover for them the way all recent presidents did for their crime family. BUT he did bow down to what I guess was some powerful threats and fill top level administration positions with the same banksters and military-industrial-complex leaders on the same team as Bush-Clinton-Obama. It is an interesting show. I won’t be surprised if the storm blows over with the criminals unscathed, but I cannot help hope for a modicum of […]

world at war

I would like to ask, “What do all these places have in common?” But the answer is all too obvious. The ruling elite have pitted USofA military might, CIA operatives and private contractors against each and every one of these countries. What do WE gain from that? You and I, nothing. The rich and powerful, on the other hand, become more rich and more powerful. Until it blows up in their faces. While that hasn’t happened yet, it is inevitable. There is no limit built into them. Outside forces must limit them eventually. I believe we will be there for the show. On one side, the other, or in the sidelines, it is most likely going to blow up during […]

why the new boss is the same as the old boss

Outgoing president Dwight Eisenhower warned us about the growing power of the military-industrial-complex. They obviously control international policy. The drug companies control national drug policy. The banksters control the monetary system. Entrenched systems control the federal government. Little men in the Oval Office are allowed to pontificate and play at being important. Their lifespan is directly related to their unwillingness to tip over the vendors’ carts. American Democracy Is “A Dead Man Walking” Authored by Paul Craig Roberts, Trump’s “sell-out,” as it is called, coming on top of Obama’s eight-year “sell-out,” is instructive. We have now had a Democratic president who sold out the people who elected him and a Republican president who has done the same thing. This is […]

How to trigger nuclear Armageddon

Those dang Russians are provoking war. I mean, look at where they put their country… right smack dab in the middle of thousands of US troops, sailors, NATO troops, war machines, small-medium-large armaments, and nuclear missile launchers. I have been watching in horror as The War Party, (aka: the military industrial complex, aka: the Ds and Rs, aka: the new world order, aka: the psychopaths and sociopaths) constantly and continually provoke Russia and China with trade wars, monetary wars, and military threats. At some point the targets will no longer be able to wait for the lunatics in charge to launch their attacks. The next day, what is left of our world will be unrecognizable. I want you to find […]

ramping up the disinformation monster

Anti-Russian propaganda is ‘unconvincing’, because Western narrative is false Neil Clark is a journalist, writer and broadcaster. His award winning blog can be found at Follow him on Twitter You really couldn’t make it up. Almost 24 million people in the EU are unemployed. The Greek debt crisis has yet to be resolved. An Islamic State terrorist attack in Tunis, just over 100 miles from Italy. The ever-worsening problem of climate change. And what are the EU elite talking about? How best to counter ‘Russia’s ongoing disinformation campaigns’. It’s good to know they’ve got their priorities right, isn‘t it? At last week’s summit in Brussels, EU leaders discussed a range of options- one of which could include the setting […]

today’s invisible heroine

As reported in the USofA military’s internal publication Stars and Stripes, the US Navy’s strategic air wing commander, Captain Heather E. Cole was fired. They report the reason as “loss of confidence” in her ability to lead. That is backwards, or actually kind-of Newspeak. What she failed to do was FOLLOW – orders to transmit the nuclear weapon launch codes allowing USofA nuclear weapons to strike Russian targets – triggering a nuclear war between Russia, China and the USofA. Rather obviously, one that we all lose. Fasten your seatbelts. The psychopaths, sociopaths and myopic gluttons in charge are ready now. I sure hope we are too. Last September they tried to nuke the Atlanta harbor as a false-flag nuclear war […]

US masterminds behind Ukraine coup

Putin in film on Crimea: US masterminds behind Ukraine coup, helped train radicals Get short URL Vladimir Putin (Screenshot from ‘Crimea – The Way Home’ documentary aired by Rossiya 1 news channel) The Ukrainian armed coup was organized from Washington, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated in an interview for a new documentary aired Sunday. The Americans tried to hide behind the Europeans, but Moscow saw through the trick, he added. “The trick of the situation was that outwardly the [Ukrainian] opposition was supported mostly by the Europeans. But we knew for sure that the real masterminds were our American friends,”Putin said in a documentary, ‘Crimea – The Way Home,’ aired by Rossiya 1 news channel. “They helped training the nationalists, […]

The End Game is Underway

By Jim Willie,   As 2014 leaves off and 2015 begins anew, the main theme seems to be the end of the American Empire, the demise of the Petro-Dollar, the blunt of USMilitary over-reach, and the global urgency of putting the King Dollar into a cement casing coffin. The global movement will gain strong momentum to end the dollarized terrorized nightmare. The entire world is coming to realize that the USDollar is wrecking the financial structures, ruining economies, forcing colossal debt abuses, while its defense is a grand threat to world peace. The extension of time before the execution has required pilferage of foreign adversary wealth and confiscation of foreign allied wealth. Shrouded in the entire grand transition is […]
