Guest Post: Ukraine Crisis - Just Another Globalist-Engineered Powder Keg

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com,

When one studies history, all events seem to revolve around the applications and degenerations of war. Great feats of human understanding, realization and enlightenment barely register in the mental footnotes of the average person. War is what we remember, idealize and aggrandize, which is why war is the tool most often exploited by oligarchy to distract the masses while it centralizes power.

With the exception of a few revolutions, most wars are instigated and controlled by financial elites, manipulating governments on both sides of the game to produce a preconceived result. The rise of National Socialism in Germany, for instance, was largely funded by corporate entities based in the U.S., including Rockefeller giant Standard Oil, JPMorgan and even IBM, which built the collating machines specifically used to organize Nazi extermination camps, the same machines IBM representatives serviced on site at places like Auschwitz. As a public figure, Adolf Hitler was considered a joke by most people in German society, until, of course, the Nazi Party received incredible levels of corporate investment. This aid was most evident in what came to be known as the Keppler Fund created through the Keppler Circle, a group of interests with contacts largely based in the U.S.

George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, used his position as director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation to launder money for the Third Reich throughout the war. After being exposed and charged for trading with the enemy, the case against Bush magically disappeared in a puff of smoke, and the Bush family went on to become one of the most powerful political forces in America.

Without the aid of international conglomerates and banks, the Third Reich would have never risen to power.

The rise of communism in Russia through the Bolshevik Revolution was no different. As outlined in Professor Antony Sutton’s book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution with vast detail and irrefutable supporting evidence, it was globalist financiers that created the social petri dish in which the communist takeover flourished.  The same financiers that aided the Nazis...

The two sides, National Socialism and communism, were essentially identical despotic governmental structures conjured by the same group of elites. These two sides, these two fraudulent ideologies, were then pitted against each other in an engineered conflict that we now call World War II, resulting in an estimated 48 million casualties globally and the ultimate formation of the United Nations, a precursor to world government.

Every major international crisis for the past century or more has ended with an even greater consolidation of world power into the hands of the few, and this is no accident.

When I discuss the concept of the false left/right paradigm with people, especially those in the liberty movement, I often see a light turn on, a moment of awareness in their faces. Many of us understand the con game because we live it day to day. We see past the superficial rhetoric of Republican and Democratic party leadership and take note of their numerous similarities, including foreign policy, domestic defense policy and economic policy. The voting records of the major players in both parties are almost identical. One is hard-pressed to find much difference in ideology between Bush and Barack Obama, for example; or Obama and John McCain; or Obama and Mitt Romney, for that matter.

When I suggest, however, that similar false paradigms are used between two apparently opposed nations, the light fades, and people are left dumbstruck. Despite the fact that globalist financiers shoveled capital into the U.S., British, German and Soviet military complexes all at the same time during World War II, many Americans do not want to believe that such a thing could be happening today.

In response, I present the crisis in Ukraine versus the crisis in Syria...

Ukraine Versus Syria

It seems as though much of the public has already forgotten that at the end of 2013, the U.S. came within a razor’s edge of economic disaster — not to mention the possibility of World War III. The war drums in Washington were thundering for “intervention” in Syria and the overthrow of Bashar Assad. The only thing that saved us, I believe, were the tireless efforts of the independent media in exposing the darker motives behind the Syrian insurgency and the bloodlust of the Obama Administration. The problem is that when the elites lose one avenue toward war and distraction, they have a tendency to simply create another. Eventually, the public is so overwhelmed by multiple trigger points and political powder kegs that they lose track of reality. I often call this the “scattergun effect.”

The crisis in the Ukraine is almost a carbon copy of the civil war in Syria, culminating in what I believe to be the exact same intent.

The Money

Money from globalist centers has been flowing into the Ukrainian opposition since at least 2004, when the Carnegie Foundation was caught filtering funds to anti-Russian political candidate Viktor Yushchenko, as well as to the groups who supported him.

The Ukrainian Supreme Court called for a runoff due to massive voter fraud and the rise of the pro-Western Orange Revolution, determining the winner to be Yushchenko over none other than Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych went on to win the 2010 elections, and the revolution returned to oust him this year.

It has been discovered that the current revolution has also been receiving funds from NATO and U.S. interests, not just from the State Department, but also from billionaires like Pierre Omidyar, the chairman of eBay and the new boss of journalist Glen Greenwald, the same journalist who is now famous for being the first to expose National Security Agency documents obtained by Edward Snowden.

Much of the monetary support from such financiers was being funneled to men like Oleh Rybachuk, the right-hand man to Yanukovych during the Orange Revolution and a favorite of neoconservatives and the State Department in the U.S.

The International Monetary Fund has also jumped at the chance to throw money at the new Ukrainian regime, which would prevent default of the country and allow the opposition movement to focus their attentions on Russia.

The revolution in Syria was also primarily driven by Western funds and arms transferred through training grounds like Benghazi, Libya. There is much evidence to suggest that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was designed to possibly cover up the arming of Syrian rebels by the CIA, who had agents on the ground who still have not been allowed to testify in front of Congress.

After this conspiracy was exposed in the mainstream, globalist-controlled governments decided to openly supply money and weapons to the Syrian insurgency, instead of ending the subterfuge.

The ‘Rebels’

Some revolutions are quite real in their intent and motivations. But many either become co-opted by elites through financing, or they are created from thin air from the very beginning. Usually, the rebellions that are completely fabricated tend to lean toward extreme zealotry.

The Syrian insurgency is rife with, if not entirely dominated by, men associated with al-Qaida. Governments in the U.S. and Israel continue to support the insurgency despite their open affiliation with a group that is supposedly our greatest enemy. Syrian insurgents have been recorded committing numerous atrocities, including mass execution, the torture of civilians and even the cannibalism of human organs.

The revolution in Ukraine is run primarily by the Svoboda Party, a National Socialist (fascist) organization headed by Oleh Tyahnybok.  Here is a photo of Tyahnybok giving a familiar salute:

So far, the opposition in Ukraine has been mostly careful in avoiding the same insane displays of random violence that plagued the Syrians’ public image. It is important to remember though that mainstream outlets like Reuters went far out of their way in attempts to humanize Syrian al-Qaida. Their methods were exposed only through the vigilance of the independent media. With the fascist Svoboda in power in the Ukraine, I believe it is only a matter of time before we see video reports of similar atrocities, giving Russia a perfect rationalization to use military force.

John McCain?

I am now thoroughly convinced that John McCain is a pasty ghoul of the highest order. He claims to be conservative yet supports almost every action of the Obama Administration. He is constantly defending anti-Constitutional actions by the Federal government, including the Enemy Belligerents Act, which was eventually melded into the National Defense Authorization Act; NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens; and even gun control.

And for some reason, the guy makes appearances like clockwork right before or during major overthrows of existing governments. McCain was in Libya during the coup against Moammar Gadhafi.

McCain showed up to essentially buy off the rebels in Tunisia.

McCain hung out with al-Qaida in Syria.

And, what a surprise, McCain met with the Ukrainian opposition movement just before the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych.  Here is a photo of McCain giving a speech to the opposition with none other than Neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok standing over his left shoulder.

Why McCain? I have no idea. All I know is, if this guy shows up in your country, take cover.

Russia In The Middle

The great danger in Syria was not necessarily the chance of war with Assad. Rather, it was the chance that a war with Assad would expand into a larger conflagration with Iran and Russia. Russia’s only naval facility in the Mideast is on the coast of Tartus in Syria, and Russia has long-standing economic and political ties to Syria and Iran. Any physical action by the West in the region would have elicited a response from Vladimir Putin. The mainstream argument claims that the threat of Russian intervention scared off Obama, but I believe the only reason war actions were not executed by the White House and the globalists was because they didn’t have even minimal support from the general public. For any war, you need at least a moderate percentage of the population to back your play.

In Ukraine, we find the globalists creating tensions between the West and the East yet again. Russia’s most vital naval base sits in Crimea, an autonomous state tethered to the Ukrainian mainland. Currently, Russia has flooded Crimea with troops in response to the regime change in Ukraine. The new Ukrainian government (backed by NATO) has called this an “invasion” and an act of war, while Western warmongers like McCain and Lindsay Graham spread the propaganda meme that Russia made such a move only because Putin believes the Obama Administration to be “weak.”

Clearly, the idea here is to engineer either high tensions or eventual war between Russia and the United States. Syria failed to produce the desired outcome, so the Ukraine was tapped instead.

Energy Markets And The Dollar At Risk

In Syria, any U.S. led military action would have resulted in the immediate closing of the Straight of Hormuz by Iran, threatening to obstruct up to 30% of global petroleum shipments.  Foreign resentment could have easily led to the abandonment of the U.S. dollar as the petro-currency.  Both China and Russia implied the possibility of an economic response to American intervention, though they did not officially go into specifics.  In all likelihood, the dollar's world reserve status would have been damaged irrevocably.

In the Ukraine, the chance of intervention has been countered with VERY specific threats from Russia, including a freeze on natural gas imports to the European Union through Gazprom, which supplies approximately 30% of the EU's fuel.  In 2009, a temporary Ukranian pipeline closure led to widespread shortages across Europe.  While some in the mainstream claim that Russia's influence over EU energy has "diminished" the fact is a loss of 30% of natural gas reserves for an extended period would inflate energy prices wildly and cripple the EU's economy.

Another specific reaction given by Russia is the dumping of U.S. treasury bonds.  Russia's bond holdings may not seem like much leverage, except for the fact that China has now publicly backed Russian efforts in the Ukraine, just as they backed Russian opposition to U.S. activities in Syria.  A dump of bonds by Russia would invariably be followed by a Chinese dump as well.  In fact, China and Russia have been setting the stage for a global dollar decoupling since at least 2008.   I have been warning for years that globalists and central bankers needed a "cover event", a distraction or scapegoat imposing enough to provide a veil of chaos in which they could then destroy the greenback as the world reserve and usher in a global currency system.  The Ukraine crisis offers yet another opportunity for this plan to unfold.

The False Paradigm And The Globalist Chessboard

So far, I have outlined what appears to be a correspondence of conspiracy between Syria and the Ukraine and how each event has the continued potential to trigger regional conflict, dollar collapse, or world war. But is this conspiracy one-sided? Are only the West and NATO being manipulated by globalists to box in Russia and provoke a conflict? And what do globalists have to gain by sparking such disaster?

As with every other catastrophic fabricated war, the goal is the erasure of sovereign identity while consolidating economic, political and social power. It is not enough that global financiers dominate the banking industry and own most politicians; they want to transform the public psyche. They want US to ask THEM for global governance. This manufacture of consent is often achieved by pitting two controlled governments against each other and then, in the wake of the tragedy, calling for global unification. The argument is always presented that if we simply abandoned the concept of nation states and reform under a single world body, all war would “disappear.”

The question is whether Russia’s Putin is aware of the plan. Is he a part of it?  Are we seeing repeat theater of a puppet Russia versus a puppet NATO like that witnessed during the Cold War?

What I do know is that Putin has, a number of times in the past, called for global control of the economy through the IMF and the institution of a new global currency using the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR).

Loans from the IMF are what saved Russia from debt default in the late 1990s. And Putin has recently called for consultations with the IMF concerning Crimea. Remember, this is the same IMF that is working to fund his opponents in Western Ukraine.

Bottom line, if you believe in national sovereignty and decentralization of power, Putin is NOT your buddy. Once again, we have the globalists injecting money into both sides of a conflict which could morph into something nightmarish.  Putin wants global economic governance and consolidation under the IMF just as much as the supposedly "American-run" IMF wants consolidation.  Global governance of finance and money creation ultimately means global governance of everything else.

Is a war being created through the false paradigm of East versus West in order to pave the road for global government?  Are East/West tensions being exploited as a smokescreen for the final destruction of the dollar's world reserve status?  It is hard to say if the Ukraine will be the final trigger; however, the evidence suggests that if a conflict occurs, regardless of who “wins” such a scenario, the IMF comes out on top.

Imagine you are playing a game of chess by yourself. Which side wins at the end of that game: black or white? The answer is it doesn’t matter. You always win when you control both sides.

The Nobel Prize Winner's hypocrisy is infinite as is his hubris:

Obama Comes Out Against Self-Determination

Paul Craig Roberts

The White House Fool has repeatedly declared erroneously and foolishly that it is “against international law” for Crimea to exercise self-determination. Self-determination, as used by Washington, is a propaganda term that serves Washington’s empire but is not permissible for real people to exercise. On March 6 Obama telephoned Putin to tell the Russian President again that only Washington has the right to interfere in Ukraine and to insist against all logic that only the “government” in Kiev installed by the Washington-organized coup is “legitimate” and “democratic.”

In other words, the elected government in Crimea pushed by the people in Crimea to give them a vote on their future is “undemocratic” and “illegitimate,” but a non-elected government in Kiev imposed by Washington is the voice of self-determination and legitimacy.

Washington is so arrogant that it never occurs to the hubris-infected fools what the world thinks of Washington’s blatant hypocrisy.

Since the Clinton regime, Washington has done nothing but violate international law–Serbia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Honduras, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia.

Does Russia have an Africa Command? No, but Washington does.

Is Russia surrounding the US with military bases? No, but Washington has used the NATO organization, whose purpose disappeared 23 years ago, to organize western, eastern, and southern Europe into an empire army with forward bases on Russia’s borders. Washington is determined to extend the boundaries of a North Atlantic Treaty Organization to Georgia in central Asia and to Ukraine on the Black Sea. Both Georgia and Ukraine are former constituent parts of both Russia and the Soviet Union.

The US realized the strait of Hormuz could be closed, leading to economic shocks and possibly global backlash against the US, so they abandoned the plan.

Yeah, they never considered that the 15 years they were planning this war, only occurred to them at that point. /disregard

It's not the globalists.  It's more about race.  The eastern Ukranians look very European.  Blond hair.  Blue eyes.  Their Hitler's wet dream.

Meanwhile, the folks on the Crimean look very Eurasian.  High cheek-bones.  Black hair.  Dark eyes.  They consider themselves Russian.

What we have is an old-fashioned race war brewing.  Bitches.

All wars are economic wars.  

 

And some wars are staged to reset or reshuffle the economics of regions or even the world as a whole.

 

History shows this.  Follow the money and who benefits.

No one had nuclear weapons and the ability to kill everything on the planet back then either.  Consolidate power, nuke a few billion people, come back bigger and badder than ever after the dust settles.  TPTB will still be TPTB and the slaves that are left will still be slaves.  And the resources that are left will last a lot longer because there won't be as many useless eaters wasting them.

Doubt it.

Look, this is nonsense. There are simply mathematical benefits to centralisation which will allow some people to benefit at the expense of the rest. When there are the resources to do it, the tendency will be to centralise and increase the economies of scale. Centralised systems though are unstable, they can't process the information fast enough, the world changes round them. This is why governments are consistently caught by surprise.

Some people deny that human nature drives humans.  We are what we are and we are very diverse.  Some people want to grow daisies, others push them.  Some want to be rich, others happy.  Some want to make the world a better place, others watch it burn. 

Go thru history and look at who benefits from wars.  Humans.  Someone benefits from just about every war.  That doesn't make it a grand conspiracy.  Certainly there are conspirators but it's highly likely they conspire against each other as much as anyone else.  When someone wins a war they tend to benefit from it.  Other parties that bet well do too. 

If anyone really thinks it's all part of a grand unified conspiracy then go do something about it.

In the meantime, just say no to war in Ukraine and Syria.  Let Europe start paying their own way.

This is all about technology finally empowering the individual more than the state, with the latter continually losing ground.

So yes, it's different this time.

Which isn't to say that the state, in its inherent insanity, won't try to put an end to humanity rather than lose control over it.

IMHO I doubt it especially if one considers who funds this kind of tech. Catherine Austin Fitts has some interesting perspectives of tech and the break away society funded by the hidden black budget USD40T plus in her estimation, and we all know there are very murky business links of DARPA etc. It is entirely plausible that the patents slapped on tech and the blocks to new inventors getting patents that conflict with 'national security' prevent us from truly seeing how tech is empowering TPTB.

Just saying keep eyes wide open; there is more than one generation who thought they were overthrowing the psycho's whilst walking into their game plan.

Governments are just tools (or weapons) for elitists.  Blaming a gun for the crime of the person holding it is not a practical solution.  Blaming governments for being corrupt is not enough, you also have to remove those who did the corrupting.

What we traditionally call "government" is just the visible tip of the iceberg. Below the water the real government runs and manipulates things to their benefit--theft of our labor and product.

Government takes the field, but it is the super-elites that make it possible.

Dr Coleman who wrote Committee of 300, and books on Tavistock Institute and more, found the Beatles to have been hijacked by the Tavistock Institute, apparently when Lennon wanted out of the BS he was shot.

Coleman has some interesting research and often includes source documents in his articles (one must buy and not re-print any part of these). After reading one of his monographs with source doc's, Cashless and Controlled I discovered it was possible to dispise the Royal Freaks of England even more.

Psychopaths don't even think in terms of murder. To them it's just getting rid of some inconveniences. How much do you think about using fly spray, or about eating beef? That's the level of consideration they have for other people.

I'm not sure that's it. What level of conscience do you have about having eaten a steak[1]? Or killing a fly?

Do you feel remorse about it?

No it seems to me that psychopaths are simply unable to empathise. They can't put themselves in the position of their victims, or anyone probably. Which is actually quite a large limitation because it makes motivation (and therefore strategy) a closed book to them.

[1] The (mounting) evidence is that animals, including cows, pigs are able to think and feel to a similar level as a young child.

Well, a child's brain develops for another 15+ years and undergoes major cognitive changes. It is far more accurate to say that a young child thinks and feels at a level similar to a cow or pig.

And steaks and flies aren't equivalent to people.

Whatever the negatives of psychopaths, I would wish that they be excluded from society.

To further point out that Jews believe they are the master race destined to rule the world because GOD commands it is a crime punishable by death in the eyes of zionists, since apparently you all want to keep that on the down low.

"I think there’s a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural, and I think we’re gonna be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century."

"Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive."

Wonder if Spectre is talking about this kind of multiculturalism...

“We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tension. By pounding into the consciousness of the dark races, that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them into the program of the Communist Party. In America, we aim for several victories. While inflaming the Negro minorities against the whites, we will instill in the whites a guilt complex for their supposed exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Blacks to rise to prominence in every walk of life and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and will begin the process which will deliver America to our cause.”

I'd like to find one. It took me years to track down Eustace Mullin's research on the Federal Reserve. Perhaps this book exists, perhaps it's a hoax, as some say.

However, the quote does seem to show the intent and actual historical path of the multicultural Marxist revolution in America. Now, if no Progressive radical named Israel Cohen ever existed, we could consider the citation invalid, beyond a sort of "historical fact through narrative fiction", in the same vein as Phillip Dru, Administrator.

There was certainly a progressive radical named Israel Cohen who lived and published from the UK at the time in question. Makow provides a partially viable explanation, but Makow is also a wordsmith who splits hairs (he doesn't actually claim to have a copy of the book in question, or that actual copies were destroyed, only that the works of Israel Cohen were targeted).

There are too many libraries, too many private collections, and too many competing elitist factions to actually make a published work disappear (particularly since algore invented the internet and microfilm of the contemporary newspapers and journals is being digitized and indexed).

That said, if Mullins was engaging in Dan Brown-style historical fiction- it really just muddies the waters for people like Sutton who sacrifice cushy careers for serious research that is not compatible with the Ministry of Truth's current version of history.

Indeed. I run into this question all the time in my "conspiracy history" hobby. How much of accepted "history" is simply one side or another's succesful propaganda? And when so many of its authors and executors write under pen-names and act under aliases, how much can be known? I agree, Sutton's work is far more documented than Mullins', and I still don't know what to do with Ezra Pound.

I have yet to find any original manuscript from Israel Cohen online, beyond this..

https://archive.org/details/shorthistoryofzi009976mbp

If the apocryphal book does exist, it is most likely kept away from the public, as such a topic is still sensitive, and the revelation of a specific racial-revolution agenda (more explicit than Spectre's) promoted by Turn of The Century Fabians could still be quite explosive. Truth will out eventually, I suppose.

Thanks for the Makow link, and your thoughtful reply.

Akhmetov joins Ukraine oligarchs in pledging to protect homeland

"Rabbi Shmuel Kaminezki, spiritual leader of the Jewish community in Dnipropetrovsk, praised Mr Kolomoisky and denied Russian claims that extremists out to persecute Russians and other minorities had taken over power in Ukraine."

"'The Jewish community is very proud of his decision to leave his comfort zone and really devote himself...to protect the homeland and develop the region,' the Rabbi said."

"'What the Russians, with their propaganda on television and in their statements, are doing is trying to show that Ukraine is anti-Semitic, which is not true. It is very safe here for the Jews. This new Ukrainian leadership is not a fascist leadership, they are patriots,' he added."


Despite calls for neutrality in Ukraine protests, young Jews are on the front lines

"Reading about the protests on Facebook and seeing anti-Semitic comments is different from the reality on the ground, Oleynikova added."


The ex-Israeli soldier who led a Kiev fighting unit

"'I don’t belong [to Svoboda], but I take orders from their team. They know I’m Israeli, Jewish and an ex-IDF soldier. They call me 'brother,'' he said. 'What they’re saying about Svoboda is exaggerated, I know this for a fact. I don’t like them because they’re inconsistent, not because of [any] anti-Semitism issue.'"

"But Delta says the Kremlin is using the anti-Semitism card falsely to delegitimize the Ukrainian revolution, which is distancing Ukraine from Russia’s sphere of influence."

"'It’s bullshit. I never saw any expression of anti-Semitism during the protests, and the claims to the contrary were part of the reason I joined the movement. We’re trying to show that Jews care,' he said."

After the ex-IDF blue helmets appeared, the Jews were advised to leave or keep a low profile:

It appears that they (Fascist and Israeli militias) even fought side-by-side: http://libya360.wordpress.com/2014/03/01/israeli-militias-fight-side-by-...

Now, Israeli and the neo-Nazi group Right Sector are holding official meeting, whereby said "confirmed anti-Jews" are suddenly converting to "Jew neutral" and "friendly to foreigners".

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/1.578537

Interesting how "eternal enemies" can suddenly become 'friends', as long as both now direct their animosity toward... Russia.  I smell a "rat", and would not be surprised if this Pravi Sector was just another "Controlled Opposition" (like Al Kay Duh) that served the role of Useful Fool/Tool.

This would lead credence to the author's thesis, that the whole thing is contrived from the get -go, and that this is the "final push" toward isolating and eventually even attacking Russia, after the groundwork has been prepared to garner domestic support.

We should expect another Lusitania, Liberty or Gulf of Tonkin event.  If sanctions against Russia eventually cause them to retaliate with a number of moves that includes (as Smiths suggests) them abandoning the Non-Proliferation Treaty, we should expect "the worst" soon after -- and have it blamed on... whomever TPTB need to blame at the time.

Not necessarily controlled opposition, but blinded by hate. I believe the Ukrainian nationalists are blinded by anti-Russian hate.

Greek Golden Dawn stated, that the Ukrainian nationalists were idiots, tools used by Jews.

3000 years of history, all great thinkers in all times and in all cultures, all over the world don't lie.

The problem is, today the sheeple have not the slightest clue what the Jewish Religion says, or, even more disgusting, the Talmud.

They have achieved so much power, that for example in Germany, even if a public talmudic citation is absolutely correct, Germans were put into jail for hate crime. As if the Talmud could be antisemitic!

It's amazing what they achieved. They even have achieved it, that the Goyim follow their law and defend it: if you tell a brainwashed philosemitic Goy one or two things about this "religion", he attacs you for being antisemitic, although he has no clue about the Talmud or their laws. And he does not want to learn anything about it! Isn't that amazing? It amazes and frustrates me at the same time.

Omidyar article by BoilingFrogsPost a week ago was interesting:

"Of the many problems that poses, none is more serious than the fact that Omidyar now has the only two people with exclusive access to the complete Snowden NSA cache, Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras. Somehow, the same billionaire who co-financed the “coup” in Ukraine with USAID, also has exclusive access to the NSA secrets—and very few in the independent media dare voice a skeptical word about it.

But what is more immediately alarming is what makes Omidyar different. Unlike other billionaires, Omidyar has garnered nothing but uncritical, fawning press coverage, particularly from those he has hired. By acquiring a “dream team” of what remains of independent media — Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, Wheeler, my former partner Matt Taibbi — not to mention press “critics” like Jay Rosen — he buys both silence and fawning press."

I shouldn't even comment on nutbar stuff like this, and I barely skimmed it, but I just commented on WB's use of McCain for one of his pieces and now I see McCain villified here, so let me offer this half-assed defense again.  He's just out there trying to be a good boy, is my impression.  He's always been pretty wack, and what's sad here is not just his efforts but that he is not eclipsed by someone more official and more competent from our so-called government.  I wish he'd get off the stage and spend his later years playing bridge or whatever, but he's not a cause of much of anything at this stage in his career, other than indigestion.

"... a half-senile old fuck who acts as spokesman for a bunch of behind-the-scenes, warmongering sociopaths ..."

Yes, that is the only conclusion that makes sense in the overall picture painted. However, anyone who did not look beyond their public schooling and their mass media indoctrination would not be able to understand that. Since something like 90% of the "news" that most North Americans get comes from a handful of huge corporations, which are all on the same propaganda page, guys like McCain are not revealed to the public to be what they really are, but rather, manage to get reelected on the basis of the same bullshit, over and over!

It is practically impossible to resist the bunch of behind-the-scenes, warmongering sociopaths, since they can promote their favourite puppet politicians, while discrediting or destroying any genuine alternative politicians, while enough of the people continue to be fooled enough of the time to vote for the puppet politicians that actually take orders from the warmongering sociopaths.

Although I agreed with what this article above stated, and with most of the comments that were made upon that article, when one steps back from the runaway social polarization driven by the successes of the warmongering sociopaths actually dominating globalized Neolithic Civilization, and looks at the general destruction of the natural world caused by the same sort of triumphant evil deliberate ignorance, due to the industrial revolution making technologies that are trillions of times more powerful, that BIGGER PICTURE of the destruction of the natural world makes the smaller picture of the human politics relatively trivial.

The political situation created by the warmongering sociopaths is runaway social polarization, driven by the sequence of short-term triumphs of backing up Huge Lies with Lots of Violence, enabling the social pyramid systems to grow bigger and steeper. However, at the same time that those human social pyramid systems are able to drive relentless, ruthless and reckless social polarization, based on the success of maintaining attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance, the overall REALLY GLOBALIZED CONSEQUENCES ARE THE RUNAWAY DESTRUCTION OF THE NATURAL WORLD.

In that context, the successes of the warmongering sociopaths being able to control their puppet politicians and masses of muppets, in order to advance the agenda of those warmongering sociopaths is relatively trivial compared to the bigger, longer term consequences of what that kind of successful attitude of evil deliberate ignorance made and maintained by those warmongering sociopaths means to the future of the human species as a whole, inside of the context of the natural world as a whole.

In that context, the series of false flag attacks, and related genocidal wars, within the human world, driven by being dominated by the warmongering sociopaths, will be all rendered moot, since the same basic attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance that enable the runaway social polarization are also enabling the destruction of the natural world. Therefore, in the end, the warmongering sociopaths are criminally insane, and driving conditions towards the madness of self-destruction. The more successful they become in driving their social pyramid systems through to greater and greater polarization, the more that they simultaneously are able to maintain the attitudes which dominate the human world, so that it behaves in ways that express evil deliberate ignorance towards the natural world.

For the same deeper reasons how and why the warmongering sociopaths are able to continue to dominate our political processes, so too, they continue to dominate the ways that their globalized Neolithic Civilization operates. For the same reasons as it is practically impossible to stop the warmongering sociopaths from driving increasing social polarization, it is even more practically impossible to stop a civilization controlled by warmongering sociopaths from destroying the natural world.

The ruling classes, the warmongering sociopaths, are criminally insane, but practically impossible to prevent making things get worse, faster. Meanwhile, the vast majority of their political puppets, and the masses of muppets that they rule over, have ALREADY been almost totally conditioned to operate with evil deliberate ignorance towards all of the most important social and natural facts that surround them, because their lives are almost totally encapsulated and controlled by the triumphant, mostly legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, advanced by the warmongering sociopaths that continue to control civilization, to operate on the basis of evil deliberate ignorance towards virtually all of the most important real facts.

As an illustration of those points:

ww2 was another bankster war with puppets churchill and stalin engaged in genocide against the germans....but the war was a ziocon adventure with zionists pulling the strings....

mccain is one of satan's little helper, lapdog for the bush crime syndicate and ziocon war mongers....

all 20th and 21st history is a complete, straight from the pit of hell lie. banksters and ziocons are hellbent on totalitarian control of the world and destruction of most of humanity.....but the instigators are the great ziocons. and you are 100% corect that they play both sides - whipping up people into a frenzy over stupid crap, just like ziocon sock puppet, kenyan born soetoro is doing now.

anyone who believes that ukraine is a national security interest of the usa is also a ziocon war mongerer.

Koos Jansen: China’s Road To Secret Gold Accumulation 

 Koos Jansen research provides more confirmation of the state-level military plan implemented by China in order to accumulate Gold under the radar screen of the market observers. Explosive situation around Ukraine will ignite further catalyst for De-Dollarisation and China and Russia maybe already much better prepared for it than a lot of Western policy makers really understand. The Financial War could have been already won long time ago. We are due for a lot of surprises in the Gold and Currency markets coming out in the next few weeks.

Russia, and China, and every other place on the planet, was forced to adopt the Neolithic style of civilization, as the only way that they could survive after being assimilated by effects of superior weapons technology.

The great paradox that humanity faces is the degree to which the human experiment into building brains that could build a better model of the world, with a model of itself within that world, is that automatically had to develop the internalization (& internationalization) of natural selection in the form of intelligence applied to human conflicts. Therefore, warfare was the oldest and best developed social science, with militarism as the supreme ideology, and weapons as the most important and biggest business.

Those who gained an advantage through better social and physical sciences and technology were able to channel that through their military and economic victories over those who did not yet have that advantage. The ONLY way that the rest of the world could adapt was to assimilate those advantages into their systems.

Thus, Russia and China have central banks, which are integrated into the globalized bankster systems. The only remaining differences are that the Russian and Chinese central banks have still some significant public controls, serving their national interests, rather than are totally subservient to the international banksters, which have effectively privatized control over the central banks in NATO counties. That is what these BIG BATTLE LINES are about, on that level.

However, the true problem is the paradoxical effects of human beings developing better science and technology, which has NOT come remotely close to developing better artificial selection, within the context of natural selection. We are stuck in the vicious spiral of the paradox that successful warfare depended upon backing up deceits with destruction, so that the financial system built on that foundation became based on backing up frauds with force.

The PARADOX of the human experiment has left us stranded in the middle, where there has been enough progress to develop globalized electronic frauds, backed by weapons of mass destruction, that both Russia and China share participation within, BUT the effort to consolidate that into a global government by the international banksters remains a criminally insane project, inside the context where the vast majority of human beings have been driven criminally insane by the triumphs of the Neolithc style of civilzation, based on social pyramid systems whose foundation was backing up lies with violence, that delibertately denies and suppresses every deeper level of truth about itself that it possibly can. Russia and China share that just as much with the NATO countries.

All of the social pyramid systems are based on legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, while none of them can admit enough of the radical truth about themselves to be able to move past that stage of development. Instead, as my previous post on this thread said, it now appears too late for human beings to transform themselves enough, in time to avoid their own mad self-destruction. Only some series of political miracles could save us from ourselves at this point ...

Thanks for the links, Karl von Bahnhof. I will try to find time to watch, and to put the Russian Web site through Google translate to see what that somewhat garbled message looks like.

I tend to think that since Russia particularly had the shit kicked out of it by the international banksters during the 20th Century, but has somewhat still recovered, that they are one of the leading edges of the resistance to the international banksters' agenda, to whatever degree that may be possible.

P.S.

One of the strange facts about my Web site, www.marijuanaparty.ca is that for several years most of the reference links which come to that site come through Russian sources, which I found VERY STRANGE. I have no idea why that pattern exists, but nevertheless, when I click on the private page of our Web site which lists links to our Web site (that includes times people may click on Zero Hedge listings to that Web site, out of curiousity) there are more links which come to my Web site coming from Russia generally, than from Zero Hedge in particular. I repeat, that makes no obvious kind of common sense to me. There is NOTHING in Russian our my Web site, but nevertheless, at least a third of the links to our Web site apparently comes from Russian sites orginally. ???

Yeah, Peter Pan, the way I put it is that the Vicious Wolves like to control Domesticated Dogs, to herd the masses of Zombie Sheeple, however, under some conditions, those Vicious Wolves will feed the more Wild Dogs, or "rogue elements," hoping to still bring them back under control later. Often one of the biggest problems that the ruling classes of Vicious Wolves face is to later suppress the Wild Dogs, after they have been fed long enough to grow stronger. Put another way, superficially speaking, often assets of the CIA etc. later have to be put down, after they have become too much like Wild Dogs that start to challenge the ruling classes of Vicious Wolves.

Meanwhile, none of the rest of the controlled opposition of Black Sheeple are never really a threat to the ability of the Vicious Wolves to continue to control the masses of Zombie Sheeple, (since most of the "opposition" to the Vicious Wolves continues to be controlled, in that form of Black Sheeple.) Paradoxically, the greatest threat to the Vicious Wolf-like people, that are the ruling classes in the human ecology and political economy, is themselves. The greatest, and probably fatal, threat to the human species is the runaway criminal insanity of the ruling classes, the Vicious Wolves. The Wild Dogs that they sometimes feed enough to grow stronger are merely a side-effect symptom of the basic criminal insanities that human beings collectively have developed to become increasingly scientific art forms, as their madnesses drive them towards collective self-destructions, in one way or another, sooner or later, due to all the various factors synergistically converging, with each one multiplying the crazy chaos of the others ...

People praying for triumph of hope over experience are fools. Leading in with the Antony Sutton video, Bullshit Brandon tries to add substance to his theatrics, and fails miserably. I get the feeling most here have not even actually read Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution (the preface of which is quoted below), much less Western technology and Soviet economic development, which served as the foundation upon which the former was written. There are often people charged with identifying, hunting, and eliminating the key linkages during these death fests- their success can have a quantifiable impact on the outcome, and the stakes aren't usually this high for those in the peanut gallery.

-

Since the early 1920s, numerous pamphlets and articles, even a few books, have sought to forge a link between "international bankers" and "Bolshevik revolutionaries." Rarely have these attempts been supported by hard evidence, and never have such attempts been argued within the framework of a scientific methodology. Indeed, some of the "evidence" used in these efforts has been fraudulent, some has been irrelevant, much cannot be checked. Examination of the topic by academic writers has been studiously avoided; probably because the hypothesis offends the neat dichotomy of capitalists versus Communists (and everyone knows, of course, that these are bitter enemies). Moreover, because a great deal that has been written borders on the absurd, a sound academic reputation could easily be wrecked on the shoals of ridicule. Reason enough to avoid the topic.
...
We find there was a link between some New York international bankers and many revolutionaries, including Bolsheviks. These banking gentlemen — who are here identified — had a financial stake in, and were rooting for, the success of the Bolshevik Revolution.

I've read all of Sutton's books.  He did well with the information that was available to him at the time, and clearly states that the evidence suggests a conspiracy of financial elites driving towards power, global power, not just "profit".  Smith did a great job of building on Sutton's evidence and showed how the global manipulation continues today.  Do you have actual evidence that contradicts Sutton's work or Smith's?  Because it sounds like you are just blindly lashing out at ideas you don't understand.

It sounds to me like you are just blindly lashing out at a post you don't understand. Sutton a took a bottom-up approach to his research. One cannot take a top-down approach in Ukraine (or anywhere else). Otherwise, Mrs. Watanabe is just as guilty of orchestrating the conspiracy as the man behind the mask, neither speculation nor correlation is causation. So to rephrase my original post in a fashion which anyone who has read Sutton can understand- Whose concession was just issued, or reinstated, by the coup in Ukraine? That is the starting point of the paper trail.

The FIRST question, regardless of discipline (political, legal, financial, martial) when considering war is Who is the enemy? The question must be answered precisely and completely on several different levels, or the result is (at best) a clusterfuck, and inevitable loss. Yet amazingly, supposed professionals from all these disciplines forget how to walk when trying to run (Smith, however, appears more a professional "community organizer" FWIW).

The enemy is not an idea, or a secret cabal whose members do not have names. The enemy is not a class (e.g. bankers, politicians, oilmen) - because classes are not homogeneous entities. Take bankers for example, as much as I despise them generally (as a class), there are clear delineations in the case of Ukraine. JPM and DB may be acting in concert with the US government against Russia, VTB and Gazprom Bank may be acting in concert with the Russian government, All four banks may be working to the detriment of the Ukrainian people. However, JPM & DB are not working in concert with VTB & Gazprom as part of some bankster cabal, they are on opposite sides. The same holds true in the oil industry (with Chevron being the meat in current shit sammich).

The NED, USAID, and Omidyar funneling half a million to Rybachuk doesn't buy the support of Tyahnybok, much less an actual revolution (and the $5b sunk cost over the past 20 years also isn't financing this thing). The astro-turfing (which is expensive even in far poorer countries) began when Ukraine backed out of the EU agreement and requires substantial hard currency, so WHO IS THE ENEMY?. Sutton has the right approach to finding the answer to the one question that MUST be properly answered in order to proceed wisely.

So after dropping some basically irrelevant names and scary (fear mongering) pictures, Smith plays the evil "Globalist" card, without even distinguishing between the major factions of the Globalist "class" - American Hegemonists, Multilateralists, Bankers, and Corpratists (at a minimum).

And then he demonstrates a truly juvenile grasp of the infighting that has been going on at the IMF and BIS over the past several years. The SDR issue does not make bankers (generally) happy because they currently have a cartel cash cow that thrives on volatility of unrestrained money creation, whereas the corporatists are more amenable since less volatility creates more consistent earnings. On the political front the hegemonists and the multilaterlaists (and in this case I'm lumping the EU in with hegemonists for the purpose of simplicity) have been battling over bylaws, contributions, and voting rights since the onset of the financial crisis - the USD & Old World don't want to sacrifice IMF and BIS control (or UNSC vetoes) to the BRICS and other emerging market governments (and the US doesn't want to pay up its "fair share", although BHO apparently just found a reach around for that component).

So Brandon Smith starts of with well researched facts, throws out some poorly researched and largely irrelevant red meat boogeymen and closes with contrived a false dilemma- Bernays and Hegel would be proud, and the sheeple who are going to have to suffer through what might well hit the Ukraine soon don't have a clearer picture of whose head should be strung up -- the inevitable consequence of which is always that more innocents suffer.

So then your argument is that the "globalists", who often refer to themselves as such, are "infighting", and are not part of the same cabal that is pursuing global goverenment? 

And yet, Antony Sutton covers in great detail in all of his books that there is no "infighting", at least, not at the top of the pyramid.  That there is indeed a form of concerted management going on here.  Smith's evidence on Putin and the IMF supports Suttons position.  Do you have something concrete that contradicts the evidence that Putin is working with the IMF and is seeking the same goals?  Do you have evidence that the globalists separate themselves along the lines of "American Hegemonists, Multilateralists, Bankers, and Corpratists"?  Because that sounds like a bunch of arbitrary labels you threw together to provide a kind of artificial separation of groups in your mind.  It sounds like you have bought into the false paradigm hook line and sinker.  The evidence suggests that they are working together, no matter what part of the world they are from, to achieve global government under the IMF.  You still have not provided any evidence against that provided in the article.  Just longwinded opinion.

No actually Sutton clearly delineated between industrial interests substantially owned by certain large banks and other industrial interests that weren't. Furthermore, Sutton's use of "Apex" was taken directly from Quigley (appropriately cited) and then goes on to criticize Quigley's conclusion: In the following tabular presentation we have listed five such revisionist books, including Quigley's. Their essential theses and compatibility with the three volumes of the "Wall Street" series are summarized. It is surprising that in the three major historical events noted, Carroll Quigley is not at all consistent with the "Wall Street" series evidence. Quigley goes a long way to provide evidence for the existence of the power elite, but does not penetrate the operations of the elite. As to Smith, and his dialectic, "The question is whether Russia’s Putin is aware of the plan. Is he a part of it? Are we seeing repeat theater of a puppet Russia versus a puppet NATO like that witnessed during the Cold War?... Bottom line, if you believe in national sovereignty and decentralization of power, Putin is NOT your buddy." If you want evidence, go back to the IMF reforms of 2010 that were forwarded by DSK and still have not been implemented, Smith's notion that Russian Central Bankers and Finance Ministers don't understand the game of international finance is STUPID and NONSENSICAL. Smith also also provides no evidence to support this gem, "Once again, we have the globalists injecting money into both sides of a conflict which could morph into something nightmarish." Then there's this testament to Smith's naivety, "Global governance of finance and money creation ultimately means global governance of everything else." Guess what, there is already global governance by the bankers- the designated legislators are the ECOSOC organs, the designated financiers are the BIS, and the IMF plays switch hitter. Smith makes Obama look like an Einstein while managing to be expectorate the same mouthful of Bernays.
