Ukraine Acting President Loses It Over "Crime Against Nation" Crimea Referendum

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Ukraine's Acting President Turchynov is not happy about what his 'fellow countrymen' in the east are doing:

  • *UKRAINE PARLIAMENT TO DISSOLVE CRIMEA LEGISLATURE: TURCHYNOV
  • *UKRAINE PRESIDENT SAYS ONLY NATIONAL CRIMEA VOTE IS LEGAL
  • *UKRAINE'S TURCHYNOV SAYS MARCH 16 REFERENDUM WOULD BE 'FARCE'
  • *TURCHYNOV CALLS MARCH 16 REFERENDUM 'CRIME AGAINST NATION'

So how will he enforce that decision? Perhaps this is the instigation that Putin has been waiting for? Bonds and precious metals are suddenly bid on this news.

It appears things are escalating once again...

  • *CRIMEA TATAR LEADER: MORE THAN 23,000 RUSSIAN TROOPS IN REGION
  • *CHUBAROV: ABOUT 10 UKRAINE ARMY GARRISONS SURROUNDED IN CRIMEA

This won't end well as Turchynov adds, Ukraine’s territorial integrity is sovereign and unassailable

Presidential Aide Valerie Jarrett Discloses Her Jewish Roots


"The White House can add one more senior staffer to its list of advisers with Jewish roots, and it is an unlikely name. Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s senior adviser and assistant for intergovernmental affairs and public engagement, disclosed her Jewish ancestry to a Jewish gathering on Monday."

"'Many, many years ago, my parents hosted a seder for a group of our Jewish friends, and it was here that my father first told me that my great-grandfather was Jewish. What a wonderful surprise for our friends, and for me! So Passover has always been a special holiday for me.'"

"She went on to talk about the seder held by Obama’s Jewish staffers while on the campaign trail in 2008 and how Obama, after being elected, lived up to his promise to hold a Passover seder every year at the White House."

"The Obama White House has lost several of its top Jewish staffers recently, with the departure of presidential chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, senior political counselor David Axelrod and chief economic adviser Lawrence Summers. It did gain, however, Jacob Lew, an Orthodox Jew, as director of the Office of Management and Budget."

The United States has some relevant history in that department. Maybe Obama/Kerry should bone up on their American history around 1860-1865 to see the likely outcome.

Putin had all the pretext he needed to invade Ukraine-proper (i.e. Kiev...or as Nuland says it, "Keev", the dumb box). He didn't invade. I assume that means he doesn't want to.

I think the only way he'll invade now is if he's forced to in order to save face. The Ukrainians seem to be pushing him that way.

At least they are paid for LOL, still  better than those third hand F16s Romania just bought via USA from Portugal for like close to 1 BILLION dollars of IMF servitude. So they get the IMF loan for 12 old F16s from the early 1980s and they are in the pockets of dual citizens who, well lets just say that Beny Steinmetz richest man in Israel owns that Rosia Montana Planned Gold Mine in Transylvania part of Romania, through the Canadia Gold Corp via Gabriel Resources.  What is at stake is Europe's largerst gold deposits in Romania (valued at 100 billion dollars, but getting the gold out involves destroying ancient Roman mine digs, a world heritage site, and literally razing pristine mountains and cultural landmarks to get to the gold), mining them would involve hundred of thousands of tons of cyanide which would sit in man made lakes wreaking havoc on the land and water table for hundreds and hundreds of years.  So far project is stalled due to environmental study and demonstrations, I am sure there will be pressure on a govt in debt to release approval regardless of what the public wants.  They can bring in the neo nazis from kiev to put the public in line.  Or how about shale fracking for gas in Romania where protests stopped Chevron from drilling a test well.  Once the govt is again under IMF thumb how soon before skulls are cracked to make way for the drilling and American profits.  So Romania you will get your water and environment contaminated by dual citizens and US oil companies.  Tandem action.

To see the effects of a cyanide spill, check out the link below, it was considered the worst ecological disaster in Europe after Chernobyl, and it involved a cyanide lake, due to gold mining in another region of Romania, breaking its dam and polluting large areas of the country

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_Baia_Mare_cyanide_spill

Oh and here is Beny Steinmetz

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beny_Steinmetz

http://www.globalwitness.org/library/corruption-arrest-us-puts-beny-stei...

Cause Romania can tell you how well they did right after getting all giddy and happy about signing up for EU servitude and part of the price of admission was giving contracts to EU and US companies

http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article/romania-cancels-contract-with-be...

How about grain prices, Ukraine get ready to get ripped off on your grain production via shady American companies who act as middle men and drive up prices by parking inventory in neighboring countries or even off ships in the Black Sea (maybe that is why they badly want a port for Kiev)

http://www.allaboutfeed.net/Home/General/2009/8/Three-companies-dominate...

http://gain.fas.usda.gov/Recent%20GAIN%20Publications/Romania’s%20Bumper%20Crop%20Triggers%20Price-Fixing%20Allegations_Bucharest_Romania_9-4-2013.pdf

So Romania has the highest percentage of foreign farmland ownership in the EU and its still going up.  Ukraine you can expect the same as part of your costs of doing business with the EU and being in debt to them.  Also expect to have your 'elected' govt sell your state owned farmland for pennies on the dollar to people like Soros and other Nuland friendsies.

I do not think there will be any real war. As it was in Kiev, or just recently in Odessa, western tv teams will be invited to a staged performance, called war with Russians (remember the shooting footage couple of days ago).
Really worse case scenario will be a couple of snipers from Maidan.
But, it is very unlikely presently.

What I found funny about the hysterical rant I heard from whatever Ukrainian stooge is in place at this hour, is that, it was in English - and fairly good English at that - with as I recall some western lingo "what's up with" or something like that.

 

Sum total there is that it was probably meant for western media consumption - to propagate this act of international treachery, wrapped in a psy op, coated with a bygone theoretical construct of Western exceptionalism and nobility.

 

I can say for certain, that the average western gum chewing retardate would get more out of his rant than would the average Ukrainian who is on the precipice of seeing their lives get turned to full retard thanks to the conspiritorial and often capricious machinations of a cabal of folks who fall somewhere between criminally insane and demonic.

Ukrainian life is the detritus of so many decades of soviet central planning tyranny. It may be twenty years later, but the demographic, cultural, and economic wounds are very deep. The west didnt cause any, or much of that, but yeah it sucks that another people/language is disappearing fast out of bad luck and let's say poor adaptation to their environment.

There is still a difference in degree vs soviet or nazi central planning, but it can go further in those directions as our .gov grows and claims more power, crisis by crisis, making rule of law a dead letter. The Chicago Way administration in DC has done far far worse than Watergate and still stands, while the press and the people do nothing. With 17T in nominal debt and all the entitlement systems set to implode, their answer will be tyrannical, whoever is in office. At this point. Obama ought to be considered a traitor for merely allowing Congress to run without a budget for that many years, while printing trillion dollar deficits. Just for that alone. But the government is now pusher, and most of us are addicts.
