Meanwhile In Donetsk, "It's Getting Ugly Here" - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

It seems the decision to launch a full 'independence' referendum has stoked even more division in the Donetsk region of Ukraine as rocks, smoke grenades, tear gas, and flash-bangs are being exchanged between pro-Russian separatists and a suddenly invigorated (after folding the last few days) riot-police force in the city center as separatists tried to storm the Prosecutor's office.

"Never Let a good Crisis go to waste"  The Progressive Playbook has been opened again.  All in the Name of O'care and Social Justice.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Funny isn't it how regressive progressives are?

Clever fuckers, who gave each other these duplicitous names.

In their play book, a dictator is the apex libertarian.

Poor ordinary people.

"Affordable care act", "Fairness Doctrine" and the list goes on.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Seriously, as far as they take it and as cliched as it has become to point out.... 1984, playing right out....

And the two biggest control elements?

Language and Entertainment....

And the TeeVee...

"Citizens United", "Patriot Act" and the big one, "Federal Reserve".

And let's not forget the one from the Bush/Harriman favorite, Der Fuhrer's "Enabling Act"

and the

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,

~ Thomas Jefferson July 1776

Oh regional Indian's picture

It's a warm and brave sentiment there Stackers, but it still asks for Government which is Govern Ment, ergo, Mind Control.

We don't need no stinking government.

We need enlightened self-organized collectives....

Post Modern Tribalism....first mad-max THEN narnia

Hedge accordingly

Here is what is going on in the real world, while these nobodies in Wall Street keep selling commodities they dont have.... what a scheme the wall street is ...

Sure the system is up for a reset where you will be able to sell only what you possess....

What I find aggravating is how they fooled the population into thinking that Communists are on the far left and fascists/Nazis are on the far right. Even the editorial staff at RT (who label the neo-fascists in Ukraine “right wing”) do not understand that Communism and Fascism are but two flavors of the same socializing ideology.

Like how do you say “National Socialist German Workers Party” in German.. and did they go by another name?

A true far right winger is either a bomb thrower who wants to abolish all government or a hermit.

Governments are instituted among Men,. . .the People. . . alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government


sounds like a Hellish feedback loop, and History seems to prove my point.

The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

perhaps 'tis time for things to fall apart, loose some Anarchy on "the world".

IridiumRebel's picture's May Day. Symbolic day for the Russians so let's see if it really starts to pop off over there.

This could be the trading floor at the CME with the silver ass fuck happening.....makes total sense too as milk is 6 bucks a gallon now, gas is 4 bucks, but PMs are at 1999 levels price adjusted of course.

MOSCOW - Tens of thousands of Russians marched through Red Square on Thursday as part of May Day celebrations in the first such display of Soviet-era-like ceremony since 1991 - the year the Communist Soviet Union dissolved.

"For the first time, stages will be filled, and five thousand (labor) veterans will stand on the tribunes of Red Square," Sergei Chernov, chairman of the Moscow Labor Union Federation, was quoted by ITAR-Tass as saying, ahead of the march, which is being seen as part of President Vladimir Putin's efforts to stoke patriotic feelings following Russia's annexation of Crimea.

As many as 2 million people were expected to be on hand for the event organized by Russian labor unions, which are mostly loyal to the Kremlin. In the end, about 100,000 people participated in the celebration, some holding signs saying: "Let's go to Crimea for vacation" and "Putin is right." Russian flags fluttered through the crowd.

Moscow's Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, whose City Hall approved the measure, lead the procession.

Earlier, he assured that it would not be a return to Soviet times.

"I can say that there won't be famous statesmen standing on the Mausoleum (like in the Soviet Union)," ITAR-Tass quoted him as saying.

May Day was celebrated with massive rallies on Red Square during the days of the Soviet Union as a commemoration of labor. Red posters glorifying the working man were carried aloft past members of the Soviet Politburo, the unelected leaders of the state, who stood atop the mausoleum housing the body of the Russian revolutionary and the first Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin.

The Red Army marched past in lockstep, and trucks laden with ICBMs were paraded past the crowds in a show of might to the world.

But after the collapse of communism here 23 years ago the annual parade gave way to less political festivities. The Communist Party and smaller leftist groups still held rallies, but they never regained the stature of the old days.

Many Muscovites customarily use to leave the city ahead of May 1 since it is a holiday. Road blocks and traffic disruptions are common.

More pompous in recent years has been the Victory Day on May 9, commemorating the victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

This year's May Day parade comes against a backdrop of patriotism mixed with repression in the wake of Russia's annexation of Ukraine's breakaway republic of Crimea last month.

While Moscow's City Hall authorized several political marches on May 1, including a march by ultra-nationalists, it refused to grant permission to the liberal opposition to Putin to hold a protest rally on May 6, citing preparations for the Victory Day Parade.

Russia's Kommersant newspaper reported that a Defense Ministry source says Putin may celebrate the day in the Ukraine province of Crimea, which was taken over by the Russian military in what the West calls an illegal invasion.


...well looky here.

Good to see that the US propaganda machine is still working.

"...a suddenly invigorated riot police force.."

Their CIA-funded paychecks must have come through.

The CIA won't leave a paper trail, just hand out fat stacks of worthless cash all around.  And gift cards to the Hot Topic they promised to open so the neo-Nazi gov goons can update their wardrobe.

The faster the Eastern/South Eastern Ukraine gets back to mother Russia, the better it is for all parts (and here I mean only casualties..).  Russia is setting it's own border with Nato, and is just taking the most valuable parts of what was originally known as Ukraine..(rightfully perhaps, considering their history there...).  Obomo and likes of Anders Fogh Rasmussen better understand this, and soon....

I'm a little bit confused here. It looks like the official militia is disarmed by locals/separatists.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Believe nothing, especially not those lying eyes....


Oh regional Indian's picture

Dropping TV changed my eyes forever.

Best thing that ever happened to me and from what I read, a few other brothers here too. And sisters too perhaps.


actionjacksonbrownie's picture

Haven't had TV for over 15 years. When i visit someone's home and they have the TV on, I am actually repulsed, and can't believe that ANYONE would PAY to watch that garbage. Much like smoking - another pastime for idiots.

 Following the same path.

Prefering to take part and live my own life in the short time that I have been graced with, I cannot understand wasteing a moment in a mindless persuit.

There are those who need to interact with us right outside our door.

I took a Louisville Slugger to my Dish Network set-up several years ago;  it was a great day.

To phraphrase Steve Jobs:  Broadcast television is over - they just don't know it yet.

BaghdadBob's picture

I totally agree Ori. I'd upvote that a million. TV truly is the No.1 drug of a nation. With print media a very close second. Ditch them both and you'll give yourself the hint of a chance.

forwardho's picture

You are not confused. The local militia handed over their shields to the (protestors)?

 Both sides are identical in physical genotype, so its quite herd to tell who is who.

We are relying on a third party to "tell" us which side is which, and more importantly who is doing what.

Believe Nothing.

All reporting is now propaganda by its very nature.

Anything to do with today's announcement in the MSM of the IMF's $17Billion "Bailout" to Ukraine? Welcome to your slavery Ukraine. Now just hand over your assets please. Merci Beaucoup.

You mean the one with the Smoke and flash Grenades, that bombing? More people died in Chicago last week then that so called bombing. I seen some of the so called candle light memorials, the camera angles were positioned to make it look as if masses of people were there having a memorial...Truth be told if there was 20 people there they were lucky,
