Ukraine Slide Accelerates: AG Office Seized, Criminal Files Being Set On Fire; US To Hold Government Responsible

Tyler Durden's picture


It's getting form bad to worse in the Ukraine: either martial law will be announced any time soon or the proxy civil war becomes a real one. On the bright side, there is something to be said about having a nation's criminal cases all in paper format: once there is a revolution, everyone's slate gets wiped clean...

The US is, naturally, stoking the metaphorical, and literal, fire.

Why? Becase as a reminder, in Victoria Nuland's own words, the US is the grand puppetmaster behind everything.

US Ambassador to hold a foreign gov't responsible?  LMAO.  Kinda like the checks and balances Osama has over our own righteous gov't?  What a joke.

The old hag dressed like an airline stewardess should go to the Ukraine and fight in the streets, instead of via foreign espionage.

It would be nice if those around the world understood that the people of the US do not control the US Federal Government (and we sure as shit have no control over the Federal Reserve or any of its sister central banks around the world).  The US Federal Government was taken from the people long ago.

I am really starting to fucking hate this government.

Maybe we will teach them a lesson and drop some democracy on their ass?

Maybe some 3rd world banana republic should make a statement that they are holding the US government responsible for something.

Using the "Hands Clean" metric I think it is painfully clear no goverment of the US -  dating back to pretty much the first congress - could legitimately stand in judgement of anybody anywhere anytime.....

Looking back over the decades it's now easy to see the wake of death and destruction left behind these psychopaths as they seek to free the world - of freedom as it turns out.

It blows my mind how these murderous bastards even got away with 911 - I mean fuck me how much evidence do people need that they are being led to slaughter and prompt them into action....... but then again Virgil sums up the american people so well - it never troubles the wolf how many the sheep may be .........

enjoy the ride you woolly fuckers.....


oh yeah and FUK THE EU TOO.......

Hey max, I don't know about that. Apparently we can walk and chew bubble gum at the same time...


A report in the Peruvian press based on a recent NBC interview with Senator McCain states that doddering Grandpa McCain is actually calling for an immediate deployment of troops and a naval fleet to Venezuela.

He wants to activate a "coalition" of allies from Colombia, Perú and Chile to "prevent President Maduro from destroying the rights and interests of the US in this hemispheric region".

"We need to be ready to go in with a military force and bring peace to Venezuela, and above all, guarantee and protect the oil flow to the United States, guarding those strategic resources, and enforcing our global interests".

Un-fucking believable!

The alternative universe where the government of Ukraine doesn't cancel diplomatic relations with the USA, revoke recognition of the USA and thereby withdrawal from all bilateral treaties with the USA, order the cancellation of all diplomatic and NGO immunities and visas for US personnel, and order their deportation within 72 hrs.

If my recollection serves the Ukrainians have a small footprint at the west end of Georgetown and could be clear in 36 hours.

A Russian intervention in Ukraine would be a disaster and involve some sort of pissing contest with the west that could spiral out of control.  Both sides should stay the hell out of it, but I think Putin will find the impulse to intervene to difficult to resist, his image as the dominate power in the region would be shattered...picking on small subjects like Georgia are one thing, intervening in Ukraine is sure to be a massive error in judgement.  The only one who can prevent this from escalating is Putin.  The situation will be bad or worse depending upon his actions.  I pray he stays out, but I fear I he will not.

You know whats the best part of being an anti-Zionist?   You will be called anti-semitic!  And a racist.  And anti-Israel.  And if you are Jewish, you will be called a 'self-hating' Jew, even if you are quite free of hate for yourself.

But you won't be called anti-Zionist.  Oh yeah, one last thing, if you come up with an 'anti-establishment' salute, you will be labelled anti-semitic as well.

Long live Zero Hedge and its informed readership! 


Fuck Zionism - it is the enemy of mankind and true liberty from debt.

Oh I know this...


But see, to people who know me and care about me, I'm no racist or anti-semitic.  


This "anti-semetic" card is the greatest trick the devil ever pulled (after convincing people that Kaiser Sose didn't exist or something to that effect) 


My point is, these parasites aren't even semites!  John Hopkins University and other reputable places & people (yes, some of whom might be mislabelled as "self-loathers") before them proved that these zionist garbage came from east europe.  The real semites have been the victims of the zionists, but they'll never have their say.  


A real racist and anti-semite is an israeli loving zionist. These people created the concept of race, superior beings, and such like.  Talmud much?  Cunts the lot of them. 


Ironically, the first victims of the Talmudic Zionists are the Old Testement Jews - who are tainted with a "self-hating" brush.  Pathetic. 


These zionist scum have slowly made it a sign of respect to be called (albeit wrongly), an anti-semite. 


And, yes, I know about the salute.  It isn't anti-semetic, but it is anti-establishment and anti-zionist, and please God, give me the chance to ram my arm, shoulder deep into these fucking zionists that control the USA, the UK, and the Saudis (oh yes, the house of saud are a cancer),

Ah yes, the reset fail... good one!

The duplicitous snake couldn't even get that right. It did not exactly unfold as the PR stooges thought it would.

Lavrov was a good sport and mostly played nice, but he wasn't going to completely let it slide. After she gave the button to Lavrov and they pressed it, Sergey took one look at it and immediately, and in deliciously exquisite, blunt Russian form, pointed out that it translated into "OVERCHARGE".

Clinton damned well knew it, because before Sergey spoke, without prompting, and supposedly without knowing it, she immediately started talking about "getting it right". After Lavrov pointed it out, she replied- "oh, we will not let you do that to us, I promise".

She is just as bad (and maybe worse!) than any of the other usual republicrat suspects...

fuck the gov of USA, when are we going to hold them responsible?

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, a rabid Russophobe and neoconservative warmonger, told the National Press Club last December that the US has “invested” $5 billion in organizing a network to achieve US goals in Ukraine in order to give “Ukraine the future it deserves.” Nuland is the Obama regime official who was caught red-handed naming the members of the Ukrainian government Washington intends to impose on the Ukrainian people once the paid protesters have unseated the current elected and independent government.

Victoria Nuland, the #2 diplomat in the United States and "rabid Russophobe", was personally cheerleading and egging her hired hands on, passing out cakes to the "protesters" in Kiev.

I know this sounds bat-shit crazy, but this is no joke; I am absolutely not making this shit up.

Here is video footage of the sordid affair (at the 1:25 mark).

Count on it.

"The television broadcasts Tuesday showing President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych announcing their agreement on rapprochement, sealed by $15 billion in loans and a steep discount on natural gas, was remarkably revealing. Some ministers and other bureaucrats present at the news conference applauded — presumably, a knee-jerk reaction — while others had grim expressions on their faces. Their obvious skepticism over the generous handout to their dodgy southern neighbors no doubt is shared by many ordinary Russians.

Putin clearly did his realist calculations with great care and may have landed a master stroke with the $15 billion bailout package plus gas discounts. If Russia "bought" Ukraine, as the protesters on Kiev's Maidan would have us believe, then he did so with a bid that takes your breath away. Russia is putting up nearly the entire sum that Ukraine needs to ensure it meets its debt repayments and other convertible currency obligations for the coming year. In this way, Moscow is buying financial stability that is a precondition for political stability in the run-up to the 2015 presidential election in Ukraine. The European Union's offer of financial assistance was only a small fraction of Russia's."

And the Boy King, along with the EU folded, leaving a sovereign people to twist in the winds of fate.

Everyone knows the EU does not give a shit about Ukraine or its people. Everyone knows for a fact that Angela Merkel, Victoria Nuland, the IMF, Francois Hollande, Grampa McCain, NATO, Barak Obama, Goldman Sachs, or any other suitor you can think of does not give a flying fuck about Ukraine. They merely want to exploit it and create a vassal state, ripping a piece out of Russia and gaining a foot hold for ulterior geopolitical motives.

One of the many reliable indicators for this is the FINAL miserly offer from the EU of a 600 million (Euro) "credit".

We have to ask ourselves: how does the miserly 600 million EU offer stack up with Putin's $15 billion purchase of Ukranian bonds package plus 33% gas discount deal?*


*$268 instead of $400 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas

With the western puppetmasters' support or not,  at least 50% of Ukraine REALLY refuse to live  in Putin's "GULAG-lite."

BTW, the other 50% are under the control of the puppetmasters from Moscow. 

Question:  do the ZH readers think it's better to let Putin recreate the Evil Empire 2.0 and deal with it later (gonna take massive tax increases) or perhaps it might make sense to take a stand and try to stop the KGB-orchestrated expansion here and now?

Wasn't part of the Cold War stretegy to embed within the US, teachers, professors, polticians, and government officials with KGB values? It's been working quite well. Nothing to recreate....this is it. It's always been the Evil Empire, mainly hidden from within with far reaching tentacles endoctrinating the youth who should see differently. It's the battle of good vs. evil. That battle is now taking place. Choosing sides is like Indiana Jones choosing the holy grail....choose wisely.

A Cold Warrior comes out of the deep freeze.

Thunder, trust me, I am merely having fun with this and trying hard not to be (too) antagonistic, but "taking action now" (without raising taxes) by "pre-emptive", or closer to the point "preventive" actions to eliminate the possibility of "Evil Empire 2.0" and to "try to stop the KGB-orchestrated expansion here and now" is a question that is caught in too many false assumptions and hypotheticals to be taken seriously.

Here is an ancient and kindred cold war spirit's bloviation to soothe your soul....

As far as I'm concerned anytime the people burn down the government and waste cops it's a good thing.  All governments are tyrannical.  The people are SICK of being pushed around, told how to live, told what to do, lied to and robbed.  BURN IT ALL DOWN!! It looks like freedom to me. Not the BULLSHIT "freedom" we have over here.

US government scum. Kick out all americans from ukraine, russia, china, all of them, who needs these troublemakers around.

I am disgusted at the US government, when they get us into the next war I'm not going.  6 police died in urkaine today and the blood is on Nuland's hands. We should hold her responsible.

If Klich doesn't call his dogs off, throw him in jail, call in the army.

Do no harm.

Accept responsibilty for one's own actions.

Always be prepared to give a helping hand to someone truly in need.

Would be a pretty nice place.

Won't happen in my lifetime, but hopefully...

The U.S. Government is going to hold the elected Ukrainian Government responsible for defending itself and democracy against U.S.-fed and U.S.-armed Nazi-symp bandits? 

And who is going to hold the U.S. Government responsible for intervening in another nation's affairs and trying to overthrow its elected Government?

Zero on the cutting edge of new job creation. Redefining the protesting industry. Like a startup from Silicon Valley - bullet proof vests, gas masks and shields.... the proper tools to be true "disrupters" in an anitquated industry.


Who says Big Government can't create new jobs? ......
