I am amazed Yanukovitch did not take it.  Perhaps he already had to carry though.

Always take the gold!

When does a house cease to be a house and become a compound?
Then again, there does seem to be many parts so I suppose that qualifies as "compound".
When does a mansion or an estate cease to be a mansion or an estate and become a compound?
If I have a house with a garage and a shed out the back, does that qualify to be a "compound"? 
If this article ( and millions of others out in MSMland ) were written 50 years ago, would they call it a "compound" or a "lair"?

Just askin'

And that is why at the 1st sign of real Trouble, you MOVE that stuff to a safer locale.

Christ, even cats and other animals are smart enough to move their Precious Litter.  I continue to be amazed how people's egos (arrogance, hubris, pride) keeps messing with their higher brain functions of problem-solving.

Here the lesson is what happens to dumb-ass MFers:  They get the "Miloshevich Treatment", or get "decommissioned" - Qaddafi/OBL style.

By contrast, smart + rich guys have learned to "go global" in every sense -- especially with their "Assets of last resort":  Cash, PM, Diamonds, 2nd Residency or Passport, and a place to land (nice apartment or house).

Plan accordingly.

"I do not know whether it is to yourself or Mr. Adams I am to give my thanks for the copy of the new constitution. I beg leave through you to place them where due. It will be yet three weeks before I shall receive them from America. There are very good articles in it: and very bad. I do not know which preponderate.

What we have lately read in the history of Holland, in the chapter on the Stadtholder, would have sufficed to set me against a Chief magistrate eligible for a long duration, if I had ever been disposed towards one: and what we have always read of the elections of Polish kings should have forever excluded the idea of one continuable for life.

Wonderful is the effect of impudent and persevering lying. The British ministry have so long hired their gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to believe them, and what is more wonderful, we have believed them ourselves.

Yet where does this anarchy exist? Where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachusets? And can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of it's motives. They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be 20. years without such a rebellion.[1]

The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13 states independent for 11 years.

There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion?

And what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

Our Convention has been too much impressed by the insurrection of Massachusets: and in the spur of the moment they are setting up a kite to keep the hen yard in order. I hope in god this article will be rectified before the new constitution is accepted."

--Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787[2]

If Thomas Jefferson wrote/spoke those words today, he's most assuredly be moved to the top of the "deck of cards" of American Citizen to be assassinated without due process of charges/criminal information being formally filed against him, without any trial of any kind (and certainly not by a jury of his peers while being able to confront and challenge witnesses & evidence proffered against him) being a "luxury" afforded him, or any thing remotely resembling a verdict being returned against him...

...before some American working for the CIA fires a Hellfire missile via drone up his anus.

Thomas Jefferson would be the world's most wanted Terrorist by the current standards of the American Regime, today, and Obama, James Clapper, Eric PlaceHolder, John McCain, Lindsey "Nancy Boy" Graham, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer & Charles Krauthammer would all ensure how evil the American Sheeple knew Jefferson to be.

The single instance of "anarchy" Jefferson referred to in Massachusetts was the Shays Rebellion. For anyone interested in seeing a great example of how this historical event is portrayed in today's Common Core, check out this vid:

Don't forget the Whiskey Rebellion also.  George Washington allowed Alexander Hamilton who was acting as Secretary of Treasury to lead an army against wilderness folks trying to scratch out a living in the wilds of western Pennsylvania.....(many of whom went to find cheap land and were virtually enslaved as indentured servents when they got there) making wiskey....(and some of it was old world Scotch Rye recipe whiskey)....which was the only way for the farmers there to get their grains to market as the roads from that area to Philadelphia and beyond was non-existent and the grains would rot before getting to market.

Thing was.....their whiskey outlsold the slop they were selling in pubs and taverns in the cities which allowed for a decent living to be made by the farmers.  But the kicker for the government was that it was tax free.....sort of like Prohibition before its time.

So when Washington sent the tax collectors into the country....they came back tarred and feathered (for real).....and often that way while tied to a piece of lumber and paraded through town......(which is where we get the term "run out on a rail" )

Washington had had enough and sent Hamilton to lead an army larger than any that was led to battle even during the Revolution and thus quashed the rebellion. 

Jefferson repealed this tax when he became President.

Remember this also.....this attack by Hamilton occured right after the Federalists (which Hamilton was ) won the day and passed the Second American Constitution.  You know it as just THE Constitution.  The first being the Articles of Confederation.  Also....Hamilton had just won a victory also by getting the charter passed for the forerunner of the Federal Reserve called the First Bank of the United States....which Jefferson vehemently opposed and then killed after becoming President.

So you see......Shay's Rebellion and the Whiskey Rebellion were attempts to hold the young country's leaders feet to the fire in honoring what they had just fought and died for.  And they were shot, killed and routed for it. 

America was doomed right from the very beginning.  It's right there for all to read about.....the victory of the Federalists.....Central Bankers.....and the suppression and repression of the people.

No. GW was following what he believed to be the law. As the Executive he was responsible for law enforcement at the federal level. Read a biography of GW sometime. He was a man of utmost honor who was compelled to carry out the duty of the Executive which meant following the letter of the law, no questions asked. GW did not have much respect for those who sought to ignore the law and he felt duty bound to quash the rebellion. In his mind the proper way to fight the tax was through the process of government. He thought if he did not quash the rebellion they would spring up everywhere as people realized that the federal government had no actual power to carry out the duty of enforcing federal law. There is no doubt that Hamilton was a huge influence on Washington in this matter but GW also was a man of deep moral conviction and part of that conviction was that you followed the law and if you did not like the law then you used the tools available to you within the structure of the government to change it. GW was arguably the most brilliant President we ever had. Read his own words if you have any doubt. There are copious amounts of his hand written letters to verify this.

Not entirely, they all had their strengths & weaknesses, just like us. Its not like he was the Piers Morgan of his day, completely

Now Hamilton, there was a POS and a snake in the grass.

From GW's Farewell Address:

"It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. >>>But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.<<< The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield."

He fully recognized the power of any government men could possibly create, how it could be abused & why...and he warned of it.

Katy Perry's new music video is a disgusting tribute to the illuminatti, to anyone interested in how the media portrays the clique.

It makes me wonder to what the song refers to.  

So you wanna play with magic....

Makes me think about the fact that society has willingly accepted a fiat currency that the illuminatti has sought to push on them for hundreds of years.  A way to turn paper into gold - the sorcerer's stone.  And now that we have tasted the alchemy, and become drunk on it, it will vanish.

Boy, we should have known what we were falling for....

And further - bullshit designed to get people to chase ghosts...

I watched the Katie Perry video, not sure why this is "illuminati symbolism" instead of what some gay guy in southern california imagines what a glam ancient egypt would be. 

I don't think it was "the illuminati" that ran the Big Wedding, for example.

The "illuminatti" functions as a frat for the monied elite in the same way the Bilderberg Group and Bohemian Grove do - it is an outlet for them to express their oppressive ideas.  Are their ideas similar to a "gay guy in socal"?  Yes.  They have no idea about art but instead focus their endeavors strictly on entertainment.

Understand, the bastard illuminatti covet power, and they know propaganda equals such.  Brainwash the masses with hocus pocus - because the masses will worship magic - and the world is yours.  Use attractive artists, use one of the five songwriters in Hollywood (that's right, there are only a handful of pop song writers), and get a hit that will spew your satanic bullshit - that will get people to forget their troubles and spend their lifesavings at the strip club.

Is there an illuminatti?  I'll beg the question - why wouldn't there be?

that myth is as believable as those moon landings. "Hitler's Jewish Soldiers" by HM Rigg: "Contrary to conventional views, Rigg reveals that a startlingly large number of German military men were classified by the Nazis as Jews or "partial-Jews" (Mischlinge), in the wake of racial laws first enacted in the mid-1930s. Rigg demonstrates that the actual number was much higher than previously thought--perhaps as many as 150,000 men, including decorated veterans and high-ranking officers, even generals and admirals."  Do you really think they would have tolerated their own kind being gassed and cremated?

This article is blatant propaganda, so you shouldn't have high expectations from the commenters. No doubt the army of shills will be out in number.

I mean, calling it a "compound" in the article's title is a dead giveaway. When propagandists refer to a compound, they intend that you subconsciously think of David Koresh or Jim Jones, making it much easier to demonize the resident(s) of the "compound".

Perhaps a more accurate title would be "Crowd Loots Presidential Residence."

Hey, feel free to disagree on the terminology. I stand by my assertion, though, that this article is pure propaganda, another embarrassment to ZH from the neocon retard they've been leaving in charge here over the weekends.

Someone trying to spin it in favor of Yanukovych would have given it a title like "Angry Mob Ransacks Presidential Palace". Instead, it's presented like some "people's committee" is taking an inventory of the Führerbunker. Both descriptions have a clearly slanted divergence from reality.

I guess I'm just pissed off because Tyler [original Tylers] put an assload of work into this site to build its credibility and reputation, and yet the weekend-Tyler comes in and squeezes out neocon propaganda turds like an incontinent on a Chinese roadside.

I do not takes sides in this beef as I find the entire situation tragic.

However, it should be noted that you are not considered a civilian if you use weapons (firebombs/guns) against the police. I find it incredible that a state of emergency was not declared and this  uprising crushed (look at what Boris Yeltsin did back in the early 90s). In eastern european terms Yanukovich has used silk gloves and from my perspective is not at fault. Demonstrators are not a democratic movement. What we have seen in Ukraine is an uprising/revolt. If the Ukriainians want this fight then by all means let them fight. But understand that there are several groups involved here and the country is divided.

This is far from over. This will get ugly very quickly when Putin and Yanukovich comes back. Putin will not let this go. And Yanukovich has legitimate claim to his position as a democraticaly elected President.

The Black Bishop:

I agree with several points.

There are several known defined domestic groups/factions involved, as well as the usual covert, purely criminal elemets seizing the moment; and externally funded factions and mercenary traitors, etc...

It is more likely than not that the Yanukovich/pro-Russian elemement will respond vigorously in due course.

As to Yanukovich's legitimate claim to the position of democratically elected President: he may well get the 'Morsi treatment' whether elements within Ukraine and/or the 'International Community' like it or not...

"...But understand that there are several groups involved here and the country is divided..."

Is that what CNN or RT told you?

Nope. All Ukraine is pissed off at the corrupt, theiving government. Cronies living in Yanukovych's shadow in the East and South have more to lose, but the average Ukrainian has no desire to see the country divided. The Ultra-Nationalists don't want the country divided. Russain-heavy Odessa confirmed the same yesterday. The vast majority of Ukrainians across the political spectrum are adamnt about a united Ukraine. The Ukrainian Secret Service is investigating the few local politicians in the Eastern cities calling for division - apparently, that's a crime.

Ethnic Russian Ukranians in the East and South have had the will to revolt beaten out of them a long time ago, but they are no fans of the former mafia government. They were simply resigned to living with a boot on their neck. Like regular Russains, they are simply indifferent to periodic crony rotation and see nothing new here. They saw the Maidan protests as futile and embarassing to Ukraine, but their sentiment had nothing to do with any kind of tacit approval of Yanukovych's mafia government.

Yanukovych is hiding out in his hometown of Donetsk. He tried to fly out of there earlier today, but the Ukrainian Border Guard wouldn't let his chartered jet take off because it didn't have flight plan permission through the normal channels. Damn bureaucrats! They may have not even known Yanukovych was planning on being on the plane. Some reports say activists turned his motorcade away from the airprot to prevent him from leaving. He left the airport after that and went back to his temporary lair at some exclusive golf club just outside the city.

Yanukovych apparently *did* order the Ukrainian Army to step in and crush the revolt a week or two ago, but they refused. That event was kept secret by his government for obvious reasons. He never intended to use silk gloves - the uprising just spread across the country faster than he thought (or was informed by the sycophants he surrounds himself with). 


"...This is far from over..."

Respectfully disagree. I think the fat lady has sung and left the building. Things are moving forward to fast for any crony counter-revolution. Besides, many of the Pro-Yanukovych temp-worker 'protestors' have yet to be paid. They're not working again for free.


"...This will get ugly very quickly when Putin and Yanukovych comes back..."

"...And Yanukovich has legitimate claim to his position as a democraticaly elected President..."

Yanukovych is being impeached and will no longer be president - all legal-like and everything. Putin is pissed, but doesn't care as long as nobody screws with his natural-gas pipeline cash machine and his unfettered access to the Black Sea. The Ukrainians seem OK with that.

Not that I would ever care how 'legal' the uprising was anyway. When the constitution and the courts are corrupted to serve oligarchs rather than citizens, then fuck the law. It's not a religion and does not require worship. You are *obligated* to re-write a constitution that restricts citizen's rights to the benefit of corrupt non-citizen corporations. You are *obligated* to re-write the laws that enslave people and empower tyrants. 

And screw 'democratically elected president'. The people always have a right to change their mind and democratically unelect any bastard that abuses that office.

You;re right.  Most folks around the world do not understand freedom from coercion because it is the norm - whether it's China, the Mideast, Russia, Africa or Eastern Europe.   They do not have a history of peaceful disagreement within a civill framework and thus, they inevitably revert back to form - Russia being a prime example.  But our purpose should be learning from our past.  I'm guess that taxes don't rank near the top of the list for those facing corruption, censorship, arrest and murder.  Just guessing.

What makes you so sure, DCRB, that you're not being sold a line of bullshit by a paid shill? I don't think Yanukovych is a saint by any stretch of the imagination, because he's a politician. I'm not swallowing the carefully crafted Red, White, and Blue narrative either.
