The Current Big Lie Is...

Authored by Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

The Big Lie today is as enormous as, and potentially far more harmful than, any Big Lie throughout history has been; and, it will be exposed fully here, and will be documented even more fully, by means of the links that are provided in this summary of it. (This Big Lie is certainly important enough for that care, because if the lie is continued unexposed, that massive fraud will produce World War III, a world-destroying nuclear war, perhaps even soon.) So, this will be only a summary of it, but a completely documented summary — not a mere ‘exposé’ that’s expected to be believed because it is already generally suspected or thought to be the case, but, instead, something that's presented in the expectation that the key facts of the case have, to the contrary, been so effectively hidden from the public, as to make necessary here the providing of full documentation of it, for anyone who wants to delve more deeply into this ongoing rape of history — the super-dangerous Big Lie that’s ongoing right now.

This Big Lie today, which is to be described here, is the lie, upon the basis of which the Cold War against the dictatorial communistic USS.R. — which Cold War had been such a boost to US weapons-makers such as Lockheed Martin while it lasted — actually became restored in 2014, and continues today, as, this time, not a ‘cold’ but a hot war, by the US and its allies, all united together (for the benefit of the owners of their international corporations, and especially of the big US arms-suppliers) against democratic post-communist Russia (which gets blamed for trying to defend itself, at every step of the way that it does so). This increasingly hot war started in early 2014 (after at least three years of advance-preparation of it by the US Administration of American President Barack Obama), in Ukraine (formerly a part of the USS.R.), when a CIA coup that was perpetrated under the cover of ‘democracy’ demonstrations, against the democratically elected Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych — when this CIA coup installed there, in Ukraine, a rabidly anti-Russian government, bordering Russia. That is certainly a provocation to war, just as would be the case if instead Russia had overthrown Mexico’s government and installed there a rabidly anti-US regime.

In this Big Lie, which reigns today and is almost universally believed in the US to be true, that bloody coup in Ukraine is simply ignored, and instead the focus is placed upon the peaceful and voluntary breakaway of Crimea from Ukraine, which breakaway actually resulted directly from that coup, which was the real precipitating-event for ’the new Cold War’ — the basis of the US-and-allied economic sanctions against Russia, and for the massing of NATO troops and weapons onto Russia’s borders, ready to invade Russia. (How would Americans feel if the Russian government did all of that, to us?)

The Big Lie today is this: that the reason for the economic sanctions against Russia, is that ‘Putin’ or Russia ‘stole’ or ‘conquered’ or ‘seized’ the Crimea region of Ukraine.

The Big Truth, about the matter, is that US President Obama conquered Ukraine itself (all of it), via a February 2014 CIA coup that he had secretly started planning by no later than 2011, which on 20 February 2014 culminated with the violent overthrow of the democratically elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovych, who had won 90% of the votes in the far-eastern Donbass area of Ukraine, and 75% of the votes in the far-southern Crimea area of Ukraine, both of which intensely pro-Yanukovych regions refused to be ruled by the Obama-appointed rulers — the hard-right, fascist and rabidly anti-Russian, team that the Obama regime imposed upon Ukraine, after Obama’s agent Victoria Nuland told Obama’s Ambassador to Ukraine on 4 February 2014, that «Yats» (Arseniy Yatenyuk), a hard-right and even racist anti-Russian Ukrainian politician, was to become appointed to run the country as soon as the coup would be over, which happened 23 days later (and Yatsenyuk did then receive the appointment and establish very hard-right anti-Russian policies — including massacres of ethnic Russians in Ukraine).

The legalities of the situation are as heinous on America’s side as the moralities are; and, yet, America’s vassal-states, in the EU and elsewhere, slavishly honor Obama’s sanctions against the victim-nation here, Russia (even while acknowledging that the residents of Crimea are overwhelmingly supportive of having separated themselves from Ukraine and grateful to Russia for now protecting them against the rabidly anti-Crimean US-imposed rulers of Ukraine). Furthermore: by no later than 26 February 2014, the leaders of the EU knew that the ‘revolution on the Maidan’ had, in fact, been a brutal coup, nothing at all ‘democratic’ — but decided to ignore that fact. So, they too are culpable in this, though not nearly to the extent that Obama is.

On Friday 21 July 2017, the anti-Russian Reuters ‘news’ (propaganda) agency headlined «Crimean scandal prompts Siemens to retreat from Russian energy» and reported that, «Germany's Siemens tried to distance itself from a Crimean sanctions scandal on Friday, halting deliveries of power equipment to Russian state-controlled customers and reviewing supply deals. The industrial group said it now had credible evidence that all four gas turbines it delivered a year ago for a project in southern Russia had been illegally moved to Crimea, confirming a series of Reuters reports». The false underlying assumption in this propaganda-article was that the «scandal» it refers to had been initiated and perpetrated by Russia, not by the United States government (which initiated the sanctions against Russia, which Siemens and Russia are now being punished for). The Wikipedia propaganda site says in its article «Russian financial crisis (2014–2017)» that «The financial crisis in Russia in 2014-2015 was the result of the collapse of the Russian ruble beginning in the second half of 2014» and barely even mentions the economic sanctions, other than to say, «The second [reason for it] is the result of international economic sanctions imposed on Russia following Russia's annexation of Crimea and the Russian military intervention in Ukraine» — implying, but not stating, that Russia had started that war — which just happened to be on its doorstep, not on the doorstep of the US — as if Mexico had been taken over by an enemy nation and the people of America were being threatened, which is what this takeover by the US government was equivalent to for the Russian people: a very real and grave national-security threat to them.

The Reuters article simply ignored the fact that Ukraine had been seized by Obama, and it simply presumed that Crimea (and also Donbass) had been seized by Putin. (Furthermore, the appeal by Donbass to become a part of Russia, was declined by Putin on 17 September 2014. But, still, the lie is also being pumped by pro-US-regime ’news’media, that Russia is trying to steal Donbass from Ukraine’s government. The US team’s lying is beyond bizarre. Sometimes, by their using carefully veiled language to deceive without outright asserting their lies, they implicitly blame Russia regarding the impasse in Donbass, even three years after Putin said no to that appeal by the residents of Donbass. And, still: Russia, which had — despite the Obama regime’s refusal to participate — signed and even had helped set up the Minsk agreements to settle the war in Donbass, gets blamed in the US-allied press for what are actually Ukraine’s refusal to honor the commitments it had signed to there. As usual, the victims get blamed. And the Trump Administration says that «there should be no sanctions relief until Russia meets its obligations under the Minsk agreements». No good deed will go unpunished — ever.)

Nor has Reuters (nor the rest of the US regime’s press) reported that a power-struggle is now occurring in the post-coup Ukraine, between the overt nazis (or racist-fascists) there, and the post-coup (that’s the fascist but not outright nazi) elected government (in elections that excluded non-fascists). The fascists, whom the current US regime supports, are being attacked by the nazis. The nazis are being led by Dmitriy Yarosh, whose followers are unabashedly nazis and often even boldly flash German Nazi Party insignia. The US Obama regime was one of only three governments throughout the world that voted against a resolution that had been introduced in the United Nations condemning fascism, racism and denial of the Holocaust. The two other pro-Nazi nations were Ukraine, whose US-installed regime felt the resolution to be personally offensive even though it wasn’t specific to Ukraine and didn’t even mention Ukraine, and the other country was Canada, which is a US vassal-nation and also has a powerful community of Ukrainian Nazis who escaped Ukraine right after WW II ended in 1945. Canada’s current Foreign Minister, appointed by the Liberal Party’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is Chrystia Freeland, a racist-fascist who is proud of her Nazi grandparents and who championed in Canada the fascist takeover of Ukraine. 

When the International Criminal Court issued, on 14 November 2016, its annual «Report on Preliminary Examination Activities», it included, on pages 34-43, a section on «Ukraine,» but considered only accusations that the Obama-installed Ukrainian government had lodged against Russia, and none of the demonstrated crimes (which are amply documented in the links herein), including the illegal coup, that the Obama regime had, in fact, perpetrated against not only the people of Ukraine, but the people of Russia next door; and the discussion by the ICC did not (such as an influential but grossly false Forbes article six days later headlined and yet provided no documentation for, «International Criminal Court: Russia's Invasion Of Ukraine Is A 'Crime,' Not A Civil War») even allege that any «crime» had been committed by any party; but, nonetheless, the Russian government (which had never ratified the treaty that established the Court) condemned the report as being «one-sided,» which was an understatement, because the report included many gross falsehoods, outright lies, such as (and I boldface the falsehood):

«At the time of the start of the events that are the subject of the Office’s preliminary examination, the democratically-elected Government of Ukraine was dominated by the Party of Regions, led by President at the time, Viktor Yanukovych. The Maidan protests were prompted by the decision of the Ukrainian Government on 21 November 2013 not to sign an Association Agreement with the European Union».

As I and others have documented, the overthrow of Ukraine’s democratically elected President started well before that time, and the coup even was already being organized inside the US Embassy there by no later than 1 March 2013; and the US State Department had begun its work to prepare it, no later than 2011 — it didn’t simply ‘happen’. And it certainly wasn’t ‘democratic’; it ended whatever democracy Ukraine had. Furthermore, Yanukovych’s turn-down of the EU’s offer was, itself, a part of the Obama regime’s plan: Yanukovych had turned it down because the Ukrainian Academy of Science’s analysis of the EU’s offer (which had been prepared in accord with the US government’s urgings) had concluded that to accept the deal would produce losses for Ukraine of $160 billion

This is the Big Lie straight out of hell, because, unless the United States acknowledges publicly that it has been lying, and that the anti-Russia sanctions that the US initiated, are based on that lie and should therefore never even have been imposed (and should not be honored anywhere), there will be war between Russia and the US. Either those sanctions will be entirely lifted, or else nuclear war will inevitably result, because Russia will not forever tolerate having its economy squeezed to death on the basis of a clear lie. But how can such sanctions be ended unless the perpetrator — here, clearly, the US — publicly acknowledges that former US President Barack Obama, and his Administration, lied through their teeth, in order to impose them, in the first place? The US government would need to renounce, to the entire world, that former US President. Or else, WW III would seem to be well-nigh inevitable. This is an extremely serious matter, which isn’t so much as even being discussed — much less, debated. WW III could result from it, but it is entirely ignored. The Big Lie just continues to be promoted, instead of exposed.

Back on 20 February 2015, I headlined «Crimea: Was It Seized by Russia, or Did Russia Block Its Seizure by the US?» and, in the years since, the documentation that it was Obama not Putin who initiated (perpetrated) the new ‘Cold War’, has only increased. But the ‘news’media hide this fact (just as they hid that article), because they exist in order to pump the Big Lie, not to puncture it. (And, of course, that also is why they won’t publish this, though it, too, is sent to all of them free-of-charge to publish.)

Donald Trump condemns many of his predecessor’s actions and decisions and statements; but, on this one, which is the most important of them all and is blatantly a fraud (the blame for the entire catastrophe in Ukraine), Trump remains alternately supportive, and noncommittal, regarding Obama’s most enormous Big Lie. Now, after half a year in office, does he even care — or does he instead simply lack the courage?

It is clear what a real leader would do — expose and renounce that biggest of all Big Lies. Only a coward would not.

(((Stephen F. Cohen))) is a big part of the big lie because he cannot snitch.  He cannot name the jew.  Just like Jamie Dimon couldn't name the jew ponzi scheme created by Madoff because that would have been snitching too.But Eric Zeuss clearly cannot name the jew either, because clearly the biggest lie is the holohoax.  With out this guilt-sledgehammer the tribe never would have been able to shackle the goyim in this new virtualized world of debt servitude.

And Europe with the UK will suffer the effects of the sanctions rather than the US. Nuland apparently spoke for the US literally when she said F*** the EU.

Don't feel bad for the EU.They volunteered to be pu**y whipped in turn by Icky Vicky Neudelmann, all her sleazy Kagan in-laws, the CIA outlaws, US State Dept, the Pentagram, and any US law/policy maker looking to advance him/herself.Now they are getting blisters and the whipping is getting worse, even with all the US tax money donated to them for their weird social projects.They are complaining that they never signed up for this.But they did.They just never read the fine print.They thought that punishing attacks were meant for distant places.They are learning the hard way -- and deservedly so since they assisted their pu**y whippers in obliterating defenseless nations -- that there is no such thing as a distant place when the DC Swamp decides to torment or destroy a target.

Lol ... this article, while purporting to be the truth is in fact a truth concealed within an even bigger lie.

There are no political sides. There are only controllers and the controlled. The human slavers are slaves themselves. Which is actually quite ironic.

The Strategic Culture Foundation is a name created to sound impressive, but it is as meaningless as the brand name "Cheerios"!

I remember Eric Zeusse ... also a made-up name.

It matters not, since the important factual refutation of Ukrainian legitimacy is entirely missing from the essay, which is that the Crimea, the Donbass plus much of the eastern region were never culturally, ethnically nor politically a part of the Ukraine before the end of the First World War. All these areas were given over to the Ukrainian SSR by the central government in Moscow during the early to mid Soviet Era, in a bid to create unity and political solidarity after the bloody enmity of the Civil Wars in the 1920s. These regions are, and always have been fully or predominantly Russian, and in the absence of a legitimate government, genuinely popularly elected by all regions and ethnicities, the Russian population should have the right to determine where their interests are best supported, and act accordingly, which they have done.

When the Big Lie comes unglued, America will be lucky to survive it. And I think we're almost there. Trump has the balls to just kill it on the spot. No one is ready for the fallout, though this is much needed.

I'm pretty sure Trump doesn't have to kill anything.  In fact, I think that the wretched smell wafting through American political discourse might just be the corpse of the Lie rotting in the walls.  (Breitbart was right about one thing for sure: politcs is downstream of culture.)

If you repeat a lie enough times it becomes even faster when you have an ignorant population. The level of willful ignorance in America today is epidemic. Over the last 50 years we have managed to create a population of sheep and cows, happy to graze where they are told, and go off to slaughter willingly. Never to really question the reality around them, to question the power that rules them. A population that has become so morbidly obese and intellectually lazy that they allow the golden phallus of their rulers to constantly penetrate their backside all the while thanking them for the pleasure and asking for more. We deserve all that we created...because by not standing up and rebelling...we created and aroused the dick that is now raming us from behind.

Can't REALLY take any USA citizen seriously any longer, when their government creates illegal wars (aka war criminals), bombs civilians, weddings and hospitals and thinks that is perfectly fine, ... arms, funds and trains terrorism groups in whole regions ....and they do NOTHING about it... while blowing hot air all the time about "being so good" ... it's utterly disgusting.They are like NAZIS with their;a) we didn't know ...b) we know but can't do anything about it ...c) we know and support it ...take your pick.

Russia/Ukraine – Crimea (If it ever went to court Russia would lose).As successor states to the Soviet Union, both Ukraine and Russia are signatories to the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE). Adopted in Helsinki in 1975, the document sought to promote détente during an era of Cold War geopolitical tensions in Europe. Part 3 – Inviolability of frontiersPart 4 - Territorial Integrity of each of the participating statesFor relevant facts (1 page)Gibraltar – Helsinki Accord 1975 (1 page)In the same respect, Spain's claim to Gibraltar has also been signed away.

So why didn't they honor the Territorial Integrity of Serbia?When violent, tribal Albanians decided to create a new nation out of Serbian land the Helsinki Accord 1975 was nowhere to be seen.All we got was propaganda and more pictures of the children doncha know.Is anyone really confident about Iraq's borders after it was rescued by the DC Swamp?Does Afghanistan function any better than it did in the past or is it considerably worse after help from the DC Swamp and its EU concbines?They forgot all about borders when they demolished Libya and sent a vibrant and functional society into the Stone Age, putting the entire population at risk for murder every day.Syria would have met the same fate had it not been for the Russians.And of course when Icky Vicky Neudelmann so generously helped herself to $5 billion in our tax money to ignite a bloody civil war in Ukraine, were was the Helsinki Accord?That parasitic skank has not even been fired.She and her paarasitic brood are still mooching off of the taxpayers and seeking other conflict opportunities.She and her Kagan family exhibit all the characteristics of opportunistic disease. So please don't think that accords mean anything.They don't and anyone who has been paying attention knows it.Even the perps know it.

 Why meddle in an election when we can overthrow the govenment? The US has been meddling and interfering in other countries elections and internal affairs for decades.This includes US meddling in Russian elections using NGO's. Not only does the US meddle in other countries elections it overthrows democratically elected governments it doesn't like, and then installs puppet leaders. Our neocons casually refer to this as "regime change". I can only imagine the hell that would break loose if Russia fomented, paid for, and assisted in a violent overthrow of the legitimately and democratically elected government in Mexico. Imagine Russian spymasters working from the Russian Embassy in Mexico City  helping and training  radicals how to use social media to bring out angry people and foment violent pubic unrest. Then Russian Duma members in Mexico City handing out tacos, and tamales emboldening and urging these angry people to riot, and overthrow the government and toss the bums out. Then Putin's executive group hand picking all the new (anti-USA) drug cartel junta puppet leaders of Mexico and a Russian senator, Ivan MiKainlev in Mexico City stating on RT, there are no drug cartels here! On the other side of the world Obama's neocon warmongers spent billions doing exactly this. Instead of drug cartels it was Banderist Neo-Nazis. Obama and our neocons, including John McCain intentionally caused all of this fucking mess, civil war and horrific death in Ukraine on Russia’s border and then placed all the blame for all of it on Putin and Russia. WTF!!!     Thanks to John McCain and our evil fucking neocons - the regime change policy implemented by Obama, Clinton and Nuland's minions, like Geoffrey Pyatt, the Ukraine today is totally fucked. It is now a banana republic embroiled in a civil war. For the US and NATO the golden prize of this violent undemocratic regime change was supposed to be the Crimea. This scheme did not play out as intended. No matter what sanctions the warmongering neocons place on Russia they will NEVER give back the Crimea! Our neocon fuck heads spent billions of our hard earned taxpayer dollars to create pain, suffering, death and a civil war inside Ukraine on Russia's border! This is a case of don't do what we do [meddle and interfere], only do what we tell you to do! The moral of the story here is its perfectly okay when we do it. We don't like it when we think it's been done to us! It's hypocrisy and duplicity at its finest!  Tech Camp NGO operating out of US Embassy in Kiev (using social media to help bring out radicals- cause civil war-pre Maidan 2013)  Nuland talks about $5 billion spent on Ukraine  Neocons -Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt in Kiev's Maidan Square  Nuland plotting on intercepted phone call the hand picked post coop Junta leaders.

"The Big Lie" was made possible by Obama's repeal of the anti-propaganda bill in Smith-Mundt.… it yes, but "renounce it" is just toothless virtue signaling. The anti-propaganda legislation must be reinstated.And I suggest that this time, the scope be expanded to include the entire IC. The majority of so-called "journalists" will be out of a job due to lack of sources.

For the life of me, I will never understand how the Russian Federation is unwilling to build the case in both it's domestic and foreign media organizations the campaign to reveal the known truths of 9/11 and weave it into the failed foreign policy dynamics that have created for both the United States and EU the catastrophic financial condition(s) they otherwise would NOT have faced in their misadventures in the Middle East had they stopped at the door of the "balkanization" of Yugoslavia in the 90's and the blockade of Iraq that killed hundred of thousands in nothing less than total abject failure!

The U.S. is unequalled and unchecked in it's repetition of lies and coverup in it's own media in reporting of the events like the Maidan 2014, so why can't the Russian Federation use the same approach in repeating the "truth"?
