The Borderlands of the Ukraine have been a decisive battlefield for centuries. Here Stockholm, Berlin and Moscow vied for dominance. Karl XII had lost here to Peter the Great; Stalin defeated Hitler; now the Clintonites are likely to suffer in the Ukraine their ultimate defeat. The Democrats had made their biggest political mistake of the century in attacking Trump for the Biden affair — that is, if the Americans retain any common sense.

Vice-President Biden extorted millions of dollars in personal bribes from the vulnerable Ukrainian client state. When this sordid affair came under investigation, he blackmailed Ukrainians, using his position and American taxpayer money to force the sovereign state to fire its Attorney General for investigating the bribes.

Instead of covering their face in shame and dismissing Biden as a potential party candidate in the 2020 race, the Dems led by the superannuated Mrs Pelosi decided to impeach the President for uncovering this rogue. In the well-remembered flick Dirty Harry the lawyers tried to save a criminal by attacking the policeman who didn’t observe the niceties of a Miranda warning. This was the model for the Dems in their impeachment attempt.

Biden’s criminal extortion wasn’t a secret. He boasted of this racket at a public occasion. He famously admitted that:

I said, I’m telling you [the Ukrainian leaders], you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.

The Ukrainians put in place someone who was solid at the time, so solid that he terminated the investigation of Burisma oil company. This company was the vessel to transfer bribes to VP Biden, via his son Hunter Biden. John Solomon of The Hill wrote:

“U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.”

The fired prosecutor Mr Viktor Shokin said that Biden fils had been under investigation. After he was dismissed due to Biden père interference, the money continued to pour out of poor Ukrainian pockets to well-stuffed Biden coffers. My Kiev acquaintances had a memory of a good-for-nothing young man, keen on coke and broads, who by himself would never get such a salary.

You would ask, why Biden admitted to the crime? He considered himself untouchable like Mrs Clinton and other people of her circle. Mischievous President Trump decided to prosecute Biden for bribery and extortion, as if he were an ordinary mortal. This was a direct threat to the Clintonites (let us use this nickname for the power variously described as Democrats, Liberals, Internationals, financiers, Masters of Discourse or Deep State). This challenge caused them to abandon caution and to start a furious pre-emptive campaign against cocky Trump.

Their accusation is outright ridiculous: they claim Trump’s intention to bring Corrupt Joe to justice was criminal per se, as Biden was a likely contender for the Dem nomination. As it happens, the US Constitution didn’t find it fit to provide likely contenders with full immunity for past and future crime prosecutions. It’s just the Clintonites were used to be above the law. Indeed, for three years President Trump avoided to touch them. Crimes of Mrs Clinton were well known, from the simple affair of the email server to the Libya murders.

It was expected victorious Trump would unleash the law against the defeated dowager for Mrs. Clinton’s role in the Obama administration’s decision to allow the Russian nuclear agency to buy a uranium mining company. Conservatives have long pointed to donations to the Clinton family foundation by people associated with the company, Uranium One, as proof of corruption, reported the New York Times. The Clintonites saved the old lady’s skin by starting the Russiagate hoax. In 2016 election debate Trump told Clinton that, if he was in charge of the nation’s laws, “you’d be in jail”. But a year later he was in charge, and she wasn’t in jail, not even charged. The ruse of Russiagate worked wonders: the President accused of collusion with Russia did not dare to charge his adversary with this very offence.

Now the Clintonites decided to repeat their feat and began impeachment procedure hoping it will keep Trump busy and away from uncovering the Ukrainian Hell’s Kitchen.

What actually had happened in the Ukraine? In 2014, Clintonites had managed the regime change in this former Soviet republic. They removed the legitimate president by using the full spectre of illegal operations. The Ukraine became a Clintonite colony, and Joe Biden their viceroy in the Ukraine. Biden’s involvement in the coup d’état was his biggest crime, but nobody speaks of that, noticed Joe Lauria. They had turned Ukraine against Russia and instigated the civil war in the East of the poor country, despite strong efforts of president Putin to keep Russia out of Ukrainian turmoil. But they also gave a thought to personal profiteering, like they did in Russia in 1990.

ORDER IT NOW

Joe Biden had been treated royally in Kiev. He was asked to chair government meetings and proudly sat on the Presidential seat. The Ukrainians are not famous for their subtlety. Nice people, but rather simple ones, even by East European measure. They became involved in 2016 election campaign on the Clintonite side. There is no doubt VP Biden was the man who directed this “foreign involvement in the US elections”. The obliging Ukrainians delivered to him the dirt on Paul Manafort, and Manafort went to jail.

The Ukraine is the second home for CrowdStrike, the cyber-security company that was instrumental in accusing Russia of meddling. Its founder and head, a Russian Jew and American citizen Dmitry Alperovich is a pathological Russia hater on the model of Masha Gessen and Max Boot. People in Kiev say he had built the case against Russia on the strength of a single server allegedly used for hacking the DNC. The server is located in the Ukraine, not in Russia. President Trump asked for its whereabouts in his conversation with the Ukrainian President Mr Zelensky.

The subject of the server makes many people in the Clintonite camp extremely nervous. They already marked it with “conspiracy” marker, meaning you may not touch it. In another “conspiracy debunking” item they created a straw man, saying “the notion that there is some missing “server,” and that the server might exist somewhere—like in Ukraine—has no basis in reality. The DNC’s network consisted of many servers and computers”. However, the server Trump asked about is not the DNC server, but the server allegedly used to hack DNC server. It had left some Russian-language traces, and it was presented as a proof of Russian involvement. But Alperovich’s hackers in the Ukraine also use Russian as their working language, and this allowed the Russia-hating Jew an opportunity to create the whole chain of “proofs” of Russian hackers’ activity with fancy names. Recovery of the server would put paid to the whole myth of Russian hacking, and would make the Clintonite case untenable.

Alperovich, obsessed with his hatred, could cook the case of Russian meddling, but it had to be ordered and utilized by somebody up the feeding chain, most probably Joe Biden. And now Joe Biden, the real criminal, who took bribes and blackmailed the friendly state officials, who orchestrated foreign involvement in the US elections, went on to become the leading contender for Dem party.

The Dems claimed Trump threatened to withdraw funds from the Ukraine if they won’t cooperate with the US enquiry. This claim had been debunked after the full transcript of two Presidents’ chat had been published. But even if it were sterling truth, it would be business as usual for the US. You probably remember the threats of cutting aid that were issued by the US representative in the UN in order to force sovereign states to vote for Israel. The execrable Nicky Haley said, ‘The US will be taking names’, and Donald Trump added his own threats to cut aid.

How could they find fault in Trump allegedly threatening to cut aid to Ukraine if they think Biden was perfectly all right for doing exactly that? But these guys aren’t playing cricket.

The forthcoming Presidential race is becoming a global affair, it seems. In so many countries the US influence had been delivered by agents of Clintonite clan, and all of them are tempted to do what the Clintonites ask, that is to help them to undermine President Trump. In the Ukraine, the struggle of Clintonites and Trumpers is far from over. President Zelensky promised President Trump to help him; but the oligarchs of the Ukraine are in Clintonite camp.

All but one: Igor (Benny) Kolomoysky, a maverick Jewish oligarch and a friend of the President, is an enemy of Clintonites. He also stands against IMF, International Monetary Fund, the powerful bankers’ body that issued many loans to the Ukraine. Just this year, Kiev has to pay six billion dollars to the IMF to remain solvent, and IMF refused to refinance it. The loans were mainly stolen by the gang of the former President, Mr Poroshenko. People in Kiev say that about 1.7 billion dollars of the latest loan had been pocketed by the American supporters of Poroshenko, meaning Joe Biden and his ilk. Now Mr Kolomoysky suggests the new Ukrainian president may default on IMF loans.

Kolomoysky is also the only oligarch who is not in bed with the liberals. The balance of power in the Ukraine is not in favour of Trumpers. The Ukrainians like to back winners; once they made a mistake supporting Mrs Clinton, as they were sure she would win. Perhaps they will make this mistake again. It would depend on the actual Dem contender. Joe Biden had cooked his goose by taking too many bribes in the Ukraine, but another contender may have a better chance, the Ukrainians think. Mrs Warren, perhaps?

They even fiddle with the idea of Mrs Hillary Clinton running again and winning this time. The Ukrainian oligarchs, and first of all Mr Victor Pinchuk, a Jewish billionaire from Dnepro city, No. 1 among the rich Ukrainians, would do anything for her. He contributed many millions to her fund; he finances the Atlantic Council, the Clintonite think-tank, fighting against Russia and Euro-sceptics. He is ‘the wealthy businessman’ Trump referred to in his talk with Mr Zelensky. Judging by Trump’s interest in the Ukrainian server, the President is aware that the old lady is still able to do some mischief, and his promise to take her to jail is still unfulfilled.

It is possible in the presidential race 2020, the Dems will use drafting technique, as the long-distance runners (or bikers, or cross-country skiers) do. The first leading contender (in our case, Biden) would get the flak, get exhausted, and in the last moment he would withdraw from the race yielding the nomination to his well-rested comrade, be it Warren or Clinton or whoever. Bearing that in mind, Trumpers could keep some of the ammo they have on Biden (and there is a lot to find in the Ukraine) until (or rather if) he gets the nomination.

  1. If this depiction of events is remotely true (I haven’t personally researched it), one might conclude that the cunning, ruthlessness, brazenness, greed and malice of the Clintonite Democrats is off the charts — of Mafia or Stalinist caliber.

    One might also conclude that, with their command of the Deep State (especially the CIA and FBI) and mainstream media, they will come out the winner in this game.

    The key mode of operation: aggressively, and very loudly, accuse your opponents of whatever crimes you are committing. Flip reality upside down.

    The mainstream media have thoroughly obstructed all lines of investigation into facts which contradict the Clintonite narrative. And Silicon Valley is working furiously to shut down any discussion in alternative media on the Internet which addresses these issues.

    Are we moving towards the consolidation of a Soviet-style regime in the United States?

  2. Great summary. There is also that one billion dollars the Biden clan got from China. More from my blog:

    Jun 7, 2016 – The $5 Billion Coup

    I thought the claim that the USA spent $5 billion to organize a coup to take control of Ukraine was a wild estimate. I recently found this 2013 video where the semi-covert coup manager from Hillary’s State Department, rabid neocon Victoria Nuland, spouts nonsense and states that $5 billion was spent! I love the Chevron sponsorship symbol in the background.

  4. For those unfamiliar with the massive Uranium one Clinton bribery scandal, here is a hot story that disappeared from our news, from my blog:

    Dec 16, 2018 – Rogue FBI

    As a follow-up to my December 2nd blog post, our major media failed to report that last week:

    “The Justice Department and FBI have missed a Wednesday deadline to provide information about the government’s mysterious raid on a former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower’s home last month. Sixteen FBI agents on Nov. 19 raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, who reportedly gave the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) documents related to the Uranium One controversy and potential wrongdoing by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fbi-misses-deadline-to-provide-docs-to-judiciary-committee-probing-whistleblower-raid

    The documents in question allegedly showed that federal officials failed to investigate possible criminal activity related to Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, a Russian nuclear company. Its subsidiary purchased Canadian mining company Uranium One in 2013.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, whose panel has oversight of the Justice Department, penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department IG General Michael Horowitz, requesting information on the justification for the raid. Grassley gave Wray and Horowitz until Dec. 12 to respond to his request. That deadline has come and gone, and neither the FBI nor DOJ has produced any documents or response.”

    Biden has no defense.

    Why would a coke head like Hunter Biden, with a string of failed ventures with shady characters and living in the US have been sought out for a position on the board of a Ukraine gas company?

    Even “if” Biden did not secure that job for is son and his son was ‘sought out’ by the Ukraine gov or the company owners because they thought that contact would help them……
    Then Biden is still guilty of putting his son’s advancement above obvious ‘conflicts of interest’ in letting him assume the job.

    Don’t know about others but when I was growing up in teen years I was constantly schooled by my father to ‘not put myself in ‘ company or situations’……that could lead to my being associated with anything questionable that might happen.

    I would think that should have been how Biden viewed his son taking the Ukraine company position..

    But then again Biden is both stupid and without any ethics. And so much for his free speech support…LOL

    excerpts,,.

    During this time, Hunter Biden was busy making a living in his father’s wake.
    He began working at MBNA bank, one of Delaware’s largest employer, in 1996. He left to become a lobbyist in 2001, though he continued receiving consulting fees from the bank. For years, beginning in the late ’90s, Joe Biden had been a top Democratic supporter of a controversial bankruptcy bill that aided issuers of credit card debt, like MBNA, by making it harder for borrowers to seek bankruptcy protections. The consulting fees to Hunter continued until 2005, when the bankruptcy bill finally passed with Joe’s support.

    At his new firm, Oldaker, Biden & Belair, Hunter also lobbied for the music-sharing service Napster while the Judiciary Committee, on which Joe sat, took on digital music piracy and represented public universities seeking congressional earmarks. The Bidens have said that Hunter avoided lobbying his father. In 2008, The Washington Post reported that, as a senator, Obama had sought more than $3.4 million in earmarks for Hunter’s clients before Joe became his running mate and that another lobbyist at Hunter’s firm had successfully lobbied Joe for an earmark for the University of Delaware

    Biden and his wife, Jill, have set about providing for themselves, earning more than $15 million in the two years following the end of his vice presidency in early 2017”’

    Do me a favor…did Biden say to Obama ?????…..” Obama had sought more than $3.4 million in earmarks for Hunter’s clients before Joe became his running mate and that another lobbyist at Hunter’s firm had successfully lobbied Joe for an earmark for the University of Delaware”

  8. So some Jewish oligarchs are for the Clintons (Biden Dems etc) and other Jewish oligarchs are for Donald the Orange (Repugs etc) It seems uncannily just like the situation in the US with good ole Sheldon and Haim. A cynic might even suggest that it was a type of a pincer movement or a case of good cop/bad cop.

    I want to be careful here because many people don’t grasp the value of what the justice is really all about. At it core the Constitution is by design intended to limit government intrusion. The Miranda expectation is not a dodge. Its primary if fencing the abridgement of a citizens personal space on a whim. In reality Miranda is probably not strong enough. It is not a trick to cover up criminal behavior.

    And the democrats call for impeachment is not in any way related to Miranda, not as simile or metaphor.

    ” The ruse of Russiagate worked wonders: the President accused of collusion with Russia did not dare to charge his adversary with this very offence.”

    Miranda is not a “ruse”.

    Not even in the ballpark of Miranda.

    “[Trump] still has 90% approval among Republicans. These Senators, though, they’ll go with the wind. They certainly could do it [vote to remove Trump from office], but something dramatic would have to change.”

    “Trump will be impeached but will be let off by the Senate, and he will likely benefit from this process because we’re going to be talking about this [impeachment drama] and kind of defending him, not criticizing him. So I think Trump ultimately will benefit.”

    “I’m rather shocked. This whole Ukraine thing is so weak. The Mueller and Russia hysteria has apparently gone out the window, or it’s kind of background to this. We’ve now moved on to this — phone call.”

    It is important to realize that this company has acquired licenses to exploit Ukraine’s largest gas field through dishonest means. The bribes paid to father Biden are much greater than what the son received. In any case, these bribes are a tiny fraction of the value of these gas fields.

    This gas company is in a position to greatly profit from any deterioration in Russian-Ukrainian relations.

    An extension and exacerbation of the civil war in the east of that country will lead to a shortage of gas. Shortage of gas leads to higher prices for consumers. War-profiteering at the expense of the poorest country in Europe.

    Sean, I agree with what you say – mostly. The fact that we are reading Mr Shamir’s excellent appreciation here shows that not all Westerners are mugs, though.

    The bigger question is: how much does it really matter what crimes and tricks are played in Washington? I am reminded of J.G. Ballard’s superb short story “Manhole 69”, about an experiment to see if men could be treated and trained to do without sleep. They succeed, but are found one morning in a state of catatonic withdrawal. To them, the whole world has shrunk and collapsed down to a tiny bubble surrounding each person’s body, so that – with no external source of stimuli – their minds shut down.

    Similarly, the more fascinated the Swamp creatures get with their own navels, the less their intrigues matter to anyone outside their little personal bubble. By and by, they may look up to notice that the world has gone on without them.

    No it’s already an upgraded Owellian regime that relies on 24/7 brainwashing. The Soviet regime could repress people through violence or the threat of it. They could never convince people that there really are 52 sexes or the need to bring in tens of millions of illegals and replace the population with foreigners.

  35. Bidengate is killing the blind Dems. Will he be in the Oct 15 debate or forced out before that? For once, it may be worth watching as the other Dems will profit when he is out. Like vultures they will seek his campaign donors and voters. The lying mainstream media can’t make this pig look pretty. Biden was already going to lose based on his failing mental abilities. Now, he is really toast. The phony impeachment claims are killing the Dems also. It seems they are suicidal this election and want to make SURE Trump wins in a landslide.

  38. Am I the only one who finds it strange Obama was never mentioned by Mr. Israel?

    What no one is talking about here is the much bigger crime against humanity that the Obama administration committed by engineering the catastrophic Ukraine Civil War. Not only did Biden’s warmongering tear apart that country, that continuing war served to re-start the Cold War with Russia. How calamitous for the world community of nations is that intentional outcome designed by the Obama-Biden-Clinton-Nuland war-making team?!

    Which means that the recent UKRAINEgate is really about stifling Trump’s initiative to get to the bottom of BIDENgate because that will inevitably lead to the root cause of the real UKRAINEgate, not the current fake one. It ought to be apparent how the Left is co-opting real scandals with fake scandals by even using the same memes and MSM emotionally-charged language. Deep State knows that the ensuing confusion is simply far too great for the average American voter to comprehend as the true story is so obfuscated by the CIA-controlled Mockingbird Media.

  53. “Shamir isn’t saying that the Miranda ruling itself is a ruse. Clearly, the article states that Clintonites are using misdirection as a ruse. Russiagate is also a ruse, and is unrelated to Miranda.”

    There is nothing in this matter that can be remotely associated with Miranda. By referencing Miranda as like the collusion accusations the author is making the comparison between the two. Such as lawyer uses Miranda to draw attention away from the case.

    That is a false comparison, even if the person is actually guilty of the accusation. Miranda says, the state cannot proceed to abuse a citizens ignorance of the process to prosecute, The citizen is entitled to know how to protect himself/herself from state authority – period. It is a legal standard.

    There is no legal standard for the collusion accusation. It is not linked even remotely to the Constitutional protections of citizens. Your response is circular self reinforcing and flawed logic coming and going. The liberals are not claiming a legal standard — they are merely slinging mud. Because even if the president were in fact colluding, it would not provide a legal basis that the liberals and democrats lost the election as result.

    Furthermore, even if they colluded by sharing information that alone is not a crime.

    Unlike collusion, Miranda is a legal standard that upon violation moots a case because of the governments abuse of power —

    nothing at all like manufacturing a lie to cover incompetence, face saving or illegal activity (including conspiring with foreign powers to start violent revolutions among sovereign nations, i.e. Syria, the Ukraine, Libya, etc.) in office, or ineffective campaign choices.

    The collusion argument does reflect the kind of circular rhetoric in defending this authors false comparison.

    Clintonites (let us use this nickname for the power variously described as Democrats, Liberals, Internationals, financiers, Masters of Discourse or Deep State).

    a “maverick” eh?

    Kind of like John McCain, huh?

    As Truth3 mentioned,

    “Kolomoisky is one of Rothschild’s front men.”

    Yep.

    However, the server Trump asked about is not the DNC server, but the server allegedly used to hack DNC server. It had left some Russian-language traces, and it was presented as a proof of Russian involvement. But Alperovich’s hackers in the Ukraine also use Russian as their working language…

    What’s with all this misdirection?

    Assange has all but said the DNC data was given to him by Seth Rich, [RIP]

    There was no ‘Russian (or Ukrainian) hacking. Rich was pissed that ‘corrupt Hillary’ had shut out Bernie in the primaries. He had a motive.

    What, pray tell- would be the motive of the corrupt, Obama State Dept. installed- Ukrainians, (working for the Clintonites) to expose Hillary’s corruption? (and their own)?

    Eh?

    “Maverick” Kolomoysky is a Zionist, Jewish supremacist, unhinged Putin-hater- in the mold of Khodorkovsky . A couple of Rothschild stooges installed to loot Ukraine and Russia respectively.

    The “maverick’ is conducting himself in perfect, parallel alignment with the “Democrats, Liberals, Internationals, financiers, Masters of Discourse or Deep State”, (i.e. the Clintonites) that hate Putin’s guts, and would like to see him dead.

    In fact, there are deep ties between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the ‘Maverick’.

    The Maverick owns the television station where Zelensky performed his comedy routine.

    I’d say in all probability that Zelensky is the Maverick’s boy. Which would go a long way toward understanding why Putin is staying at arms length from the comedian.

    globalist agendas like climate change and the EU are on the retreat, nevertheless globalists seem not to leave the arena without bitter fighting.

    patriots may be the last hope for earth to survive in the form known to us, but they are more vital for america herself. why? — because the “democraps and rebloodicans” with their globalist agendas were growing to be disgusting in the eyes of many ordinary american people before trump. remember, trump is a guy from the outside of the “political establishment”, don’t get fooled by that he imitates the “rebloodican”! 😉

    for many american people, and for reasons above, the american federal government had morphed into an alien body, regardless of the voters’ political will, pushing its own alien globalist agenda… and endless wars.

    4-5 years ago, there was the talk of secession.. american states should leave the union en masse to cancel a useless federal govt. and summon a new continental convention. a new constitution will be proclaimed which allows the states to fire any president or congress, who don’t heed to states’ (people’s) calls to come to senses, by a majority vote. i don’t know how widespread that discussion was.. i know, it exists. and if trump is unsuccessful somehow or gets imprisoned, that danger still looms.

    Readers here know, and certain members of the media know (Ammanpour, Anderson Cooper who have actually traveled without fixers and entourages)

    that if the daughter of a past PM or President smarted off to Erdogan, Xi or Rouhani on a social media account,

    she would likely disappear, be tortured or her children would be snatched for a few weeks, to get her “mind right”.

    Chelsea Clinton is a repulsive slob who has no achievements other than inviting an actual human sex trafficker to her marriage to a fat, sullen Jew that is unemployed.

    Biden is corrupted. Clinton is corrupted. But Trump is corrupted too for the following reasons (among others):

    1. Timing: He has not investigated Biden nor Clinton for almost 3 years. Now that Biden seems likely Democrat nominee, he suddenly becomes so keen to investigate, while still ignoring (or not pushing for) investigation of Clinton (who is not running).

    2. Corruption: Trump appears corrupted too when he tries to use US aids as leverage to get Ukraine to start the ball rolling on something that can benefit his re-election. This is almost no difference than what Biden did.

    3. Vengeance: Instead of letting the machinery of Justice and State departments work at their own pace, Trump looks vengeful when he and his personal lawyer Giuliani are intimately involved.

    The end results is that Trump supporters becomes more convinced of Biden/Clinton/Democrats wrong doing, and the Democrat supporters becomes more convinced of Trump’s corruption and guilt. So, the country hardens the divide and more people lose confidence of politicians.

    My Letter From Joe Biden

    Author’s note: The 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq by a U.S.-led coalition will go down in history as one of the greatest geopolitical disasters in modern history. Then-Sen. Joe Biden was in a unique position to prevent this war from happening. That he chose not to speaks volumes about the man who now seeks to become the next president of the United States. My personal experiences with Biden from 1998 to 2002 provide a window into the character of the man that Americans should familiarize themselves with before considering whether to give him their support.
    Scott Ritter

    [MORE]

    “I envy your position. I sincerely do. I envy the ability to have such clarity on this issue.”
    Listening to those words, coming as they were from Sen. Joe Biden, one of the most vociferous defenders of the policies of Bill Clinton’s administration, I knew I was in for a grilling. It was Sept. 15, 1998. I was seated, alone, at a table reserved for witnesses, giving testimony to a joint session of the Senate foreign relations and armed services committees about the reasons behind my resignation as a chief weapons inspector with the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), charged with overseeing the disarmament of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs. Arrayed before me were some of the most powerful people in the United States, if not the world. The combined membership of these two committees totaled 36 senators, a little over a third of the entire membership of that esteemed body. More than 20 were present at the hearing and, over the course of the next hour and a half, I was questioned in detail by 17 of them, none of whom seemed to object to my presence more than Biden.

    “Let me ask you a question,” Biden continued. “Do you think you should be the one to be able to decide when to pull the trigger?”
    By Aug. 28, I had received a call from the staff of the Senate Armed Services Committee, requesting my presence on Sept. 3 before a joint session of that committee and the Committee on Foreign Relations.
    Biden, however, had taken umbrage over the fact that the hearing had been allowed to go forward without the presence of either the secretary of state or secretary of defense to offer balance, especially when, as he couched the issue, I was trying to push the United States to war with Iraq. “Isn’t that what this is about?” he demanded. And despite my answers to the contrary, Biden proceeded to lecture me on the limitations of my position as an inspector. “I respectfully suggest that [the secretaries of state and defense] have responsibilities slightly above your pay grade … that’s why they get paid the big bucks. That’s why they get the limos and you don’t.” The issue, Biden said, was more complex than simply a question of “Old Scottie Boy didn’t get in.” It was a decision “above my pay grade,” and the jobs of those charged with making that decision were “a hell of a lot more complicated than yours.” It was about as insulting an experience one could imagine, and it took all my willpower to sit there and take it unflinchingly

    Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Nebraska Republican, who said, “We realize, Major Ritter, as far as we know, that you did not have a limousine; you did not make the big bucks … we understand that, like sergeants and junior officers and people who carry the rifles and actually do the fighting and do the inspecting, that you may have a perspective that the big-bucks people don’t.”

    But rather than allow the inspections to run their course, the Clinton administration instead used the work of UNSCOM to deliberately provoke a confrontation, seeking to inspect a sensitive facility belonging to the Baath Party based upon old intelligence information that had long since expired. The goal was to get the Iraqis to deny inspectors access to the site. When Iraq instead agreed to allow inspectors inside the facility, the Clinton administration immediately ordered all UNSCOM inspectors out of Iraq, before initiating a 72-hour bombing campaign, Operation Desert Fox,

    Biden, later declined to talk to me directly, instead dispatching a senior member of the minority staff of the Foreign Relations Committee to meet with me. This meeting was a singular disappointment. The staffer began by calling me a traitor for speaking out about Iraq and took umbrage when I backed up my claims with documents. “You are not supposed to have these materials,” he said. “They are classified, and you are a traitor for publicizing the information they contain.”
    After reminding the staffer that he was walking a very dangerous line in calling a former officer of Marines a traitor, I pointed out that the information I cited was from my time as an inspector, and was not classified in any way.
    The staffer agreed that the article was fact-based, even if he disagreed with its conclusion. “But this isn’t about facts. This is about politics, and Senator Biden will not go against the policies of the Clinton administration, even if those policies are failing.”
    Biden convened his hearing, which sought the testimony of witnesses hand-picked to sustain the desired conclusion that Iraq was a threat worthy of war. He then went on to vote in support of the use of military force against Iraq—a sharp contrast to the position he took in 1991.

    Biden: ‘Jewish heritage is American heritage’

    excerpts…

    “The truth is that Jewish heritage, Jewish culture, Jewish values are such an essential part of who we are that it’s fair to say that Jewish heritage is American heritage,” he said. “The Jewish people have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you.”
    “So many notions that are embraced by this nation that particularly emanate from over 5,000 years of Jewish history, tradition and culture: independence, individualism, fairness, decency, justice, charity.
    Jews have also been key to the evolution of American jurisprudence, he continued, namedropping Brandeis, Fortas, Frankfurter, Cardozo, Ginsberg, Breyer, Kagan. “You literally can’t. You can’t talk about the recognition of … rights in the Constitution without looking at these incredible jurists that we’ve had.”

    “Jewish heritage has shaped who we are – all of us, us, me – as much or more than any other factor in the last 223 years. And that’s a fact,” he said.

    “We talk about it in terms of the incredible accomplishments and contributions” of Jews in America, Biden added, but it’s deeper “because the values, the values are so deep and so engrained in American culture, in our Constitution.”

    “So I think you, as usual, underestimate the impact of Jewish heritage. I really mean that. I think you vastly underestimate the impact you’ve had on the development of this nation. We owe you, we owe generations who came before you,” he said.”

  106. Today America is governed by an Organized Criminal Enterprise. a take over that began with then Vice President Bush after his bungled assasination of Ronald Regan. However, it wasn’t a complete failure as it resulted in Bush (a Rockefeller asset) actually running the WH, and subsequently winning the presidency. Bill Clinton (a possible Rockefeller offspring, who for all his Democratic party trappings is a CIA (Bush) cresation who was treated by G. Bush like a favored nephew, and both benefitted greatly in partnership international narcotics trafficking. After Bill it was George’s son’s turn, after that came Rockefeller’s next choice Obama. Trump interrupted the Rockefeller reign, but he has problems too steming from his accepting Russian mafia money in the late 80s early 90’s, to save his real estate empire. They, the Russian/Ukrainians, needed a brand name through which to launder money into the states, looted from mother Russia, and Trump filled that need to a T. So today we’re witnessing a fight between the Russian mafia crooks including a reluctant but fatally comprimised Trump, and the Rockefeller’s communist crooks, all for control of America, her banks and military, and ultimately the world.

    I understand the approach; it would be very popular with Joe 6-Pack. Big Media has been exposed: watch Giuliani and George Stepinshitalopolous. The Naked Deceit of the MSM has been laid bare. I think that in future, many will look back and see that a simple win as you suggest was not doable;the lack of executive control of the Alphabet agencies and Civil Bureaucracy is near non-existent at this point. 2020 will break the will of the Democrat Party. Two years of controlling the House and Senate could actually allow for this type of activity because the way was cleared to do so in the first term.

    What the Dems did was go spastic for 3 years screaming Russia to hide Ukraine. I’m sure there is more dirt in Ukraine and China and….Notice Trump has 2 personal lawyers that he has briefed to handle items he could normally count on a Cabinet Secretary to do? Why? These are not, I suggest, normal times. The C_A, Brennan, Clapper and others are in full court press. But now it’s the 4th period and they are out of gas (sorry, bad sports metaphor).
    Trump could get impeached. The Senate would look at it. Rule it is spurios and throw it out. Then McConnell could say: ‘What about this CFR video, Biden, Ukraine…what about that?” Trump gets elected in 2020 with a landslide after gaining significant sympathy and support. The MORE INSANE the MOCKINGBIRD CIA media behaves, the more people are leaving the Democrat Party and the more Independents see Trump as the only game in town.
    Who is their to vote for: Biden, Warren, Booker, Bernie? The Left has no one except Gabbard and they don’t trust her. Kamala Harris has lost all heart. Killary Clinton or Big Mike Obama? The voters would reject both. They have nothing.

  108. @Begemot

    The language analogy is not appropriate in this case because the use of the definite article “the” is governed by specific grammatical rules as follows:

    “We do not normally use the definite article with names:

    William Shakespeare wrote Hamlet.
    Paris is the capital of France.
    Iran is in Asia.

    But we do use the definite article with:

    countries whose names include words like kingdom, states or republic:

    the United Kingdom the Kingdom of Bhutan
    the United States the People’s Republic of China

    countries which have plural nouns as their names:

    the Netherlands the Philippines”

    Taken from the website of the British Council.

    One exception that comes to mind – The Hague

    So according to this, it is not correct to say “the Ukraine”, unless the exception applies.

    Regarding the origin of the name, Ukraine, taken from the website “ukrainetrek.com”:

    “Origin of “Ukraine”

    The word “oukraina” was first mentioned in the Hypatian Codex in 1187 as the name of the territory of Pereyaslav Principality meaning “outskirts”.

    There are several theories about the origin of the name “Ukraine”. One of them says that the name originates from the general Slavic word for “borderland”, which primarily referred to Kievan Rus border territories – Pereyaslav Principality. Later on “Ukraina” referred to borderlands within the Polish Kingdom”

  109. @Robjil

    There are grammatical reasons why it is “The United States” and “The Netherlands”, and not just “United States” or “Netherlands”.

    As for “The Ukraine” vs. “Ukraine”, I found one explanation online that the definite article “the” was used while Ukraine was a part of the Soviet Union. After that, while the label persisted, the Ukrainians pushed to have it eliminated from the English translation to show that Ukraine had become a separate and independent country.

    A website, “ukrainetrek.com”, does NOT use the definite article at all.

    Otherwise, your observation regarding the etymology is correct.

    Holy sh*t Israel. Your take on Kolomoisky is such a gross distortion of reality that one can only hope it was done out of ignorance and not some ‘spin’ job in a misguided attempt to rehabilitate Kolomoisky’s reputation. A more cynical interpretation would see this as part of an agenda to whitewash Kolomoisky now that he has succeeded in becoming both puppetmaster and ‘godfather’ of the criminalized state of the Ukraine.

    Where to begin.

    Let’s start with your claim “Mr Kolomoysky is the only one Ukr oligarch who is against IMF and against Clintonites.”

    The only reason Kolomoisky is against the IMF is because his looting of the Ukrainian economy became so blatantly outrageous they were finally forced to move against his Privat Bank.

    By the time regulators took over PrivatBank, the $5.5 billion had already been transferred to banks in Austria, Luxembourg, and Latvia. From there, the trail goes cold. … This account is based on a forensic audit by Kroll, the U.S.-based corporate investigation and risk consulting firm. The report … is based on PrivatBank’s own records and was obtained exclusively by OCCRP. … Ukraine nationalized PrivatBank in December 2016, saddling taxpayers with a $5.9 billion bailout.”

    Kolomoisky was perfectly fine with IMF’s actions when in 2014 more than a third (over $3 billion) of a massive IMF loan went directly to his Privat Bank. This money then magically disappeared into offshore accounts.

    As for being against the Clintonites, you seem to gloss over the not insubstantial fact that Kolomoisky is the beneficial owner of Burisma, the company at the center of this latest scandal.

    “In August 2012, a Ukrainian group calling itself the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC), reporting its research into the ownership of Ukrainian gasfields, claimed that Zlochevsky had sold out the year before…
    AntAC describes itself as “a Ukrainian civil society organization, which unites experts from legal, media and civic-political sectors fighting corruption as a root cause of the key state-building problems in Ukraine.” Zlochevsky had let go of Burisma through a chain of companies called Ukrnaftoburinnya (Ukraine), Deripon Commercial Ltd. (Cyprus) and Burrard Financial Corporation (BVI). AntaAC’s reports cites Oleh Kanivets, a former chief executive of Ukrnaftoburinnya, as saying the chain ended up with Kolomoisky. “The Privat Group is the immediate owner. This company was founded by Mykola Zlochevsky some time ago, but he later sold his shares to the Privat Group.”

    You seem to forget that Kolomoisky was the Clintonistas golden boy during the civil war with numerous glowing articles extolling his virtues planted in MSM. He was even made Governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast at their behest.

    John Helmer, who writes about corruption in the former Soviet Union, also seems to have a somewhat different view on the matter ;

    Good or bad, he is not considered as anti-Putin, or anti-Russian in the Ukraine.”

    So history is being rewritten in the Ukraine.

    -Gone is the fact that Kolomoisky publicly called Putin, a “schizophrenic short-arse” who was “completely incapable, totally insane”.
    -Gone is the fact that Kolomoisky funded the neonazi brigades who committed the worst atrocities against pro-russians during the civil strife.
    -Gone is the fact that Kolomoisky publicly proclaimed a bounty of $10,000, dead or alive, for every Russian during the war.
    -Gone is the fact that Kolomoisky sabotaged attempts by Poroshenko to stop the bloodshed by negotiating a cease-fire.

    If indeed this is the general belief in the Ukraine, it is a tribute to the manipulation of public perception. Given the reality, it is highly unlikely this happened by some sort of mass delusion. Rather it suggests a purposeful shifting of public opinion by the media in the Ukraine. (Coincidentally most of this media just happens to be controlled by a certain tribal ethnicity (an all too familiar state of affairs in the western world, as Shamir has repeatedly pointed out).

    This implies an agenda. So is this whitewashing of Kolomoisky merely to make him more palatable to Ukrainians now that he has effectively become the overlord of the Ukraine. Or is there a deeper game afoot?

  123. utu says:
    @hobo

    But he is not anti-Putin or anti-Russian and he loves Chabad Lubavitchers. That suffices for Shamir.

  124. @hobo

    At the bottom of the piece you linked it says “Washington and Kiev sources add their suspicion that reviving the old charges against Kolomoisky is convenient for US officials seeking leverage of threatened prosecutions in the US to bend the newly elected Ukrainian government and Kolomoisky himself” So much for those arguments.
    There are no good guys in the story. Kolomoysky is a maverick in many ways – he changed his line and his attitude frequently. Now he is against IMF; now he supports pro-peace with Russia line. Yes, he was not always like that. But that is what he is now. Pinchuk is deeply connected with Atlanticists, or Clintonites. He invested in the Atlantic Council, the policy think tank of the group. So now Kolomoysky is to be preferred to Pinchuk. It does not make one of them good and another one bad. Both are bad; but now Kolomoysky takes a line that is more pro-peace and more pro-patriots.
    As for the claim that Kolomoisky is the beneficial owner of Burisma since 2012, it is a very dubious one. If it would be so, why Zlochevsky bothered so much about it after the coup in 2014?

    The elites of most US sidekicks are corrupt. The elites of first-rate vassals, like Germany, UK, France, or Japan, might be as corrupt as the US elites, whereas the elites of third-rate vassals, like Ukraine, are considerably more corrupt. What’s more, in these substandard vassals the corruption is not limited to the elites, it permeates everything. Say, in the US or EU a road policeman is highly unlikely to demand a bribe from a stopped motorist, especially explicitly, whereas in Ukraine it’s a usual occurrence.

    Well, friend, I definitely use “the Ukraine” intentionally. I prefer tradition and reject innovations. The post-coup government of the Ukraine wants us to call them just “Ukraine” and their capital “Kyuv”. I write “Kiev”, as it was done for centuries. But then, I usually speak of Burma and Rangoon, Bombay and Tallin, – instead of Myanmar, Yangon, Mumbai, Tallinn. If I were a state representative writing a note to Ukrainians or Burmese, probably I would pay attention to their desires. But I am not, and I do not. If their regime will last historically meaningful time, we can discuss it again. Meanwhile, they are the Ukraine, like the Netherlands. And their capital is Kiev.

    Rurik,

    How are you doing my brother…glad to see you commenting…I’ll add a little bit and see what you think…

    It’s not a coincidence, that the Clinton’s have had a hand in what’s going on in Ukraine. This shit goes way back to 1999, when NATO began bombing Kosovo. Russians always had good relations with Serbia being a land of fellow Eastern Orthodox Slavs and of Yugoslavia being a rightful part of Moscow’s sphere of influence.

    Not being consulted—or even, apparently, warned, by Bill Clinton—sent the very clear message that the U.S. had decided it now presided over a unipolar world. There was no longer even the pretense of recognizing Russia’s fading-superpower status.

    From this point on, Russian President Boris Yeltsin’s administration, already weak and embattled, would be unable to justify its friendly, perennially de-escalating posture toward the West. Anti-American feelings ran so high you would have thought the U.S. were bombing Russia. The liberals in Moscow were in a panic. The nationalists were mobilizing not only politically but also militarily: Men lined up outside the Yugoslav Embassy in Moscow to sign up to volunteer to defend Serbia.

    The country was mobilizing in support of its nationalist leader, Slobodan Milosevic.

    In August, Yeltsin anointed as his successor, a virtual unknown named Vladimir Putin. Within a few weeks, Putin became spectacularly popular by launching a new war in Chechnya. Politicians formerly known as liberals praised the Russian army for its performance there; one said it was “regaining its dignity.” He did not mention Kosovo, but he was referring to the general sense of humiliation that had stayed with Russians since the spring.

    In December 1999, Putin became acting president, and the following March, he was elected to the office. Over the course of the following 14 years, he nurtured in the Russian public a sense of nostalgia for the Soviet Union and especially for the fear it inspired in the rest of the world. In 2008, Russia invaded the former Soviet republic of Georgia and effectively annexed part of its territory. And then it did the same with Ukraine. This time Putin mentioned Kosovo. Indeed, in his speech to parliament, he made it very clear that by annexing Crimea he had avenged Russia for what had happened with Kosovo.

    “It was our Western partners who created the precedent; they did it themselves, with their own hands, as it were, in a situation that was totally analogous to the Crimean situation, by recognizing Kosovo’s secession from Serbia as legitimate,” said Putin. And then, as he cited American statements on Kosovo, he got more and more worked up until he said, “They wrote it themselves. They spread this all over the world. They screwed everybody—and now they are outraged!” (The Kremlin’s official translators, who are forever civilizing the Russian president’s speech, translated this sentence as “They wrote this, disseminated it all over the world, had everyone agree, and now they are outraged!” The expression Putin used, however, was “vsekh nagnuli,” street slang for having had non-consensual anal sex with everybody, rather than for having everybody agree.)

    Hi Joe,
    Your time is running out.

  136. Ron Paul is suggesting that the whistleblower complaint is perhaps part of a CIA coup against Trump, just as Watergate was likely a coup against Nixon , particularly as the alleged whistleblower is said to have ties to the agency . Chuck Schumer warned Trump a while back when he was critical and dismissive of the findings provided by the intelligence agencies , you don’t do that they “have six ways to Sunday ” to retaliate . In any event we may end up with a “twofer ” ,with both Trump and Biden out ,which would be no great loss , unfortunately there are plenty of corrupt politicians to take their places .

    This forcing changes in language to support the Ukrainian nationalist agenda is even being attempted against the Russian language. I learned that in Russian the preposition ‘на’ [on] is used instead of ‘в’ [in] for the English expression ‘in Ukraine’, thus ‘на Украине’ instead of ‘в Украине’. But this usage is now politically incorrect. My Russian speaking Ukrainian wife tells me that Russian speakers on the social media VKontake are getting criticized by Ukrainian nationalists for this use of ‘на’ instead of ‘в’. I just checked Google’s English to Russian translator of the English “in Ukraine’ and it gave me ‘в Украине’. Totally incorrect but Politically Correct. Google lies.

    Timeline of the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation
    From Wikipedia

    February 27

    On February 27, at 4:20 local time, sixty pro-Russian gunmen seized Crimea’s parliament building and Council of Ministers building. They were said to be professionals and heavily armed.[36] Thirty broke into the building initially, with a bus carrying another thirty and additional weapons arriving later.[37] The gunmen were unmarked but raised Russian flags.[38]

    While the gunmen occupied Crimea’s parliament building, the parliament held an emergency session.[39][40] It voted to terminate the Crimean government, and replace Prime Minister Anatolii Mohyliov with Sergey Aksyonov.[41] Aksyonov belonged to the Russian Unity party, which received 4% of the vote in the last election.[40] It also voted to hold a referendum on greater autonomy on 25 May. The gunmen had cut all of the building’s communications and took MPs’ phones as they entered.[39][40] No independent journalists were allowed inside the building while the votes were taking place.[40] Some MPs claimed they were being threatened and that votes were cast for them and other MPs, even though they were not in the chamber.[40]

    That’s what I remember Anon, now I wasn’t there, maybe you were and you can share what really happened. “They did what they had to do, when are you guys going to do what you have to do?” I live in Mexico just about as corrupt a place as any, but our corruption is internal brother, your corruption effects other countries. With the new President we’re starting to address our corruption, don’t believe the MSM, they’re pissed off that he put a stop to the sacking of PEMEX.

    Look at the Wall Street rating they had last year (Odebrehct, PEMEX Theft, Energy Reform, Looting Pension Funds, etc) they gave Mexico top rating, Mexico a great place for investment. This year the new President (Blocked Corrupted Contracts with PEMEX, Stopped Pipeline Theft, Put Politicians in Jail, Froze Bank Accounts, Investigating Corruption, Investigating the 43 deaths, etc.) Wall Street rated PEMEX at Junk, Mexico will not see any growth, put your money elsewhere.

    PEMEX just paid 50 billion dollars on their debt, put right up Wall Street’s ASS!!!!If oil prices go higher, we’re going to be just fine.

    So, tell what happened in Crimea, Anon…

    Here are some reasons

    https://futuristrendcast.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/why-is-crimea-overwhelmingly-pro-re-unification-with-russia/

    Tired and weary of the bickering divisions in Ukraine.

    1. Crimeans are sick and tired of living in the artificial, dysfunctional state that is Ukraine. Read more about Ukraine’s four distinct parts (five, if you count Crimea), their divisions and my original prediction about what it means for Ukraine’s future.

    Most people identified with Russia. Crimea was a very important part of the Russian Empire.

    2. Most people in Crimea are Russians. According to recent polls, 97% are Russian-speakers (even those who are formally of Ukrainian ethnicity). Most residents of Sevastopol, as a separate subject of Crimea, are retired or active officers and servicemen of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, as well as their families. They want to be protected against forced ukrainization and against the threat to their lives by Ukrainian nazis.

    Tartars wanted it too. Tartars also live in a large state in central Russia.

    Crimean government has done something very smart by affording #CrimeanTatar language the status of the third state language, thus securing the Tatar minority vote. More here. The Russian Autonomous Republic of #Tatarstan and the World Tatar Congress weighed in by promising cultural and financial support to Crimean Tatars as long as they vote pro-Russia.

    Ukraine was a mess since leaving the USSR.

    Crimea will be able to re-build its industry with Russian investments. Crimean industry was all but destroyed (just like everywhere in Ukraine’s south) as a result of Ukraine’s inept and criminal oligarchical rule. In the 90’s, almost the entire post-Soviet space, including Russia, suffered from the looting by oligarchs and their Western handlers, but Russia/ #Putin were able to stop and reverse the trend, with obvious results. Ukraine is still in the downward spiral.

    Crimeans wanted to go back home to Russia.

    Last but certainly not least: most Crimeans have been suffering tremendously Under Kiev rule. They have dreamed for 23 years of re-uniting back with #Russia. Crimeans say: “for 23 years, we were unappreciated guests, now we are finally going home.” This says it all!

    The Democrats have a significant challenge in getting rid of Biden because low information black voters (particularly in the south, and particularly black women) really like him (for reasons not necessary to discuss here).

    They have a major impact on important primary states.

    Getting their attention–and getting them to change their mind about Biden–will be a _big_ challenge for the Democrats.

    If by invasion you mean Crimea, sorry to disappoint, but several Western sources quite reluctantly confirmed the results of Crimean referendum of 2014:

    Gallup
    http://www.bbg.gov/wp-content/media/2014/06/Ukraine-slide-deck.pdf

    If you support the separation of Kosovo from Serbia without Serbian consent, you cannot argue against separation of Crimea from Ukraine without the consent of Kiev regime.

    On the other hand, if you believe that post-WWII borders are sacrosanct, than Crimea belongs to Russia (illegally even by loose Soviet standards transferred to Ukraine by Khrushchev in 1956), Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Soviet Union should be restored, and Germany should be re-divided.

    Yea, and if we go deeper in history, Crimeans never wanted to be in Ukraine without broad special rights. Crimea had a referendum on 20 January 1991 (before the USSR was dissolved) where 94% of the voters supported the Crimean Autonomous Republic. Then there was a referendum in 1994, where >78% voted for greater autonomy, almost 83% voted for the restoration of the Constitution of Republic of Crimea that allowed dual Ukrainian and Russian citizenship, and ~78% voted for making the decrees of the President of Republic of Crimea law. Ukraine illegally abolished Crimean autonomy and the post of Crimean president in 1992. In 2014 the chickens came home to roost. Ukies were furious. As usual, also impotent.

    Even lying Wiki has acknowledges both of these referenda and Ukraine abolishing Crimean autonomy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_Crimean_sovereignty_referendum; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994_Crimean_referendum; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_of_the_Autonomous_Republic_of_Crimea).

    BTW, we all know what happened in Odessa: banderites burned people alive. Under current Kiev “government”, not a single banderite murderer is in jail, but quite a few people on anti-banderite side who escaped the fate of being burned alive are still in jail, five years later. Justice Ukrainian way.

  155. It’s not that Ukraine corrupts people. It’s the other way around: honest people and businesses avoid Ukraine, whereas all sorts of crooks flock there. A recent example: purely American crook Manafort indicted by Mueller practiced his dirty crookery not in Russia, as globohomo would like us to believe, but in Ukraine.

  156. “Prior to the Constitution we had a Central Government that could not get anyone to agree on how to tie their shoes it had no power. ”

    And hence the Supremacy clause in the US Constitution. A strong central authority to act as nation is not a pass to limit the power of the citizen. In the minds of the founders, government was intended to protect freedoms, not infringe them.

    The debate was always centered on the threat of government over reach into the lives of the populace establishing policies such as

    “which faith and practice”

    would be required. The Bill of Rights was intended to make clear those barriers for states and more importantly citizens that could not be broached by the federal government. Limiting the power in writing of the central authority. It would be a mistake to assume that Bill of Rights served as just those rights listed, but instead serve as reference point against government intrusion of a much larger understanding. Even the centrists refer to central authority to empower government to act, not as mechanism of violating the very reasons for the revolution. A powerful authority to protect citizens under the umbrella of national sovereignty.
    ————————-

    And why Pres Lincoln did not make any attempts to free slaves. It was barred by the Constitution as a right. Had the south refrained from acting, not a single slave would have been freed and no attempts by Pres. Lincoln would have been pursued to do so.

    The Civil War absolutely empowered the federal government, But that was the result of the war begun by the South. By attacking Fort Sumter — they invited the question of whether a state could separate by means of war —

    They lost that argument on the basis of war. Frankly, I think it’s a very interesting question. Can a state, can a person declare their independence from the the union established. Individual can, how the state goes about do so is a very interesting debate. And who decides. The southern states to my knowledge did not hold state votes or debates among citizens first. How many votes in the state constitute enough to launch separation is unresolved. The matter of how citizens that don’t seek separation can be told they are no longer protected by the Constitution or vice versa. There’s no easy way to define the parameters by which I get to tell another citizen they are no longer US citizens.

    But by choosing war — the south made moot that discussion, at least for the time being. And in doing so they created circumstances to vastly increase government authority. And the country was sensitivity to southern concerns as they not only permitted continued discrimination barring blacks especially the country’s states adopted similar policies. And that has exacerbated the mess we are dealing with today. Not because blacks don’t deserve citizenship, but we as a nation chose to define citizenship on something as benign as skin color (generally speaking).

I don’t think you can draw a clear line between the intelligence agencies, the various think tanks, organised crime from child trafficking to drugs and major arms dealing, powerful families on both sides of the law etc. They may have a few competing power centres and Clintons obviously serve one whilst Trump is also hardly alone. I’m not sure what sort of clout Trump’s backers have compared to the ones who would appear to control the CIA but it wouldn’t surprise me to find cells for both within its ranks.

    I do not doubt the 2020 candidate will be Clinton and never did. Even if they have to stuff her full of straw and put a stick up her arse to keep her upright and wheels to move her more naturally than carrying her would be anyway. Just because she dies even she can be rigged to wave and move her mouth and head a bit. A bit of technology will provide sound and voila she will be better in 2020 dead than she was barely alive and stumbling in 2016. I have simply not doubted she’s the candidate for a moment and as it seems more likely just feel amused as it unfolds. Even when she lost in 2016 I knew she’d run again and nothing that has happened since has changed my mind.

    The Ukraine thing will end Biden’s run and Lizzie has already had a meeting where she has been informed of how things stand. She seems to be playing along without a peep and she has no odd bruises or limp or anything like Bernie did when he was first informed of how things would be in 2015. He also sings in tune these days. Hillary can distance herself from the fallout somewhat if impeachment fails so I don’t expect to see too much of her on the issue, just singing along in the choir.

    There was no need to bring any troops in as there were 17000 there already by legal agreement. They were actually entitled to have 25000 stationed there but had far less. The Russian presence meant that the kind of bloodbaths that occurred in Odessa and elsewhere was prevented and as far as I know there was no loss of life. The results of the referendum were overwhelming and apart from some minor attempts at mischief by Kiev, the transition appears to have gone very smoothly.

    It is our Western media who have twisted everything to create the impression of Russian aggression. It is high time that social media was used to thoroughly discredit the lying media.

Second, he is a card-carrying Nazi. Third, he has a medical document attesting to his mental retardation. Speaker fits the parliament. Parliament fits the country. As the saying goes, every nation has the government it deserves.

    I suppose we *have to take your word for it (*not necssarily), so that leaves general dupedom.

    No you don’t Anon…you don’t have to believe anything I say…but one thing is for sure, I have no reason to lie to you or anyone else! I fucked up, Robjil is someone I have shared information with on this site, and his response to my comment was one of sharing correct information with me (letting me know I was misinformed in a decent way).

    So, I took that opportunity to include in my message previous interaction on this article, with other commentators. I expected you and AnonTN to read my response and take it for what it was. My acknowledgement of being wrong, with that said.

    Maybe you think we should let this go.

    I want to make something clear to you both…if you can’t accept that, that’s all I have for you…

    Must I point out, you come on here like a royal FKA (fuckin’ know it all), in a ‘down home’ rambling way, but nonetheless arrogant.

    I see you have read my previous posts and know I’m a fucking beast when I read about bullies, racists and just dumb motherfuckers! There is a world of difference between being wrong, misinformed and being a dumb motherfucker, I think we can both agree to that, right. You can fix being wrong or misinformed, but you can’t fix being a dumb motherfucker! Are you understanding what I’m trying to say to you?

    You love to chide USians for their lack of agency, urge us to radical -perhaps even violent – action, mock the public’s lack of wokeness.

    I call like I see it, I lived in the US 55 years and have seen it all! When I saw the Oklahoma City bombing and those bloody bodies of babies being pulled out while ATF agents were standing outside knowing they would have been in that building, if not for the call they received that morning telling them not to show up for work that day…if you like to watch your wife fucked by other men its call being “cockold”…those motherfuckers are worse than that…those were babies…

    Just another Average Jose in the matrix. A little humility, please.

    If you have read my previous posts, and I’m sure you have, you should know that this sentence makes no sense at all. I do not live in the US, and this is about as much humility, as I have given anyone on here, and that is only because I was wrong about something. Accept this for what it’s worth, because I don’t like it when my other personality takes over my keyboard. Can you feel me, brother? You too, anonTN…

    NoseytheDuke,

    Thank you for sharing your insight on the event, just as Robjil shared his. But I find myself in a situation with 2 anons trying to drown me in my uninformed comment! Like vultures they wait to spot something that they can use to eat away at your person. But all I have is Mexican Chorizo, so they can start there! LOL

    Take care Nosey!!!!

    There is even something fishy about the Oklahoma bombing. We live in a Zion Age of Faith world. There are many holes in the Oklahoma incident.

    There are many other links between OKC and 9/11. For example, the alleged hijackers visited the OKC area many times and even stayed in the same motel that was frequented by McVeigh and Nichols. After both the OKC bombing and 9/11, building monitoring videos went missing, FBI harassment of witnesses was seen, and officials ignored evidence that did not support the political story. Additionally, numerous oddities link the OKC area to al Qaeda. In 2002, OKC resident Nick Berg was interrogated by the FBI for lending his laptop and internet password to alleged “20th hijacker” Zacarias Moussoui. Two years after this interrogation, Berg was became world famous as a victim of beheading in Iraq. Investigators looking for clues about these connections will be particularly interested in two airports in OKC, the president of the University of Oklahoma, and the CIA leader who both monitored the alleged hijackers in Germany and was hired at the university just before 9/11.l

    Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?

    Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.

    Why didn’t VP Joe Biden tell his son Hunter that his deals with Ukraine and China smacked of nepotism and corruption?

    Why did not Obama do the same?

    Is there anyone who isn’t a member of the controlled opposition? How would you know?

    You could never know for sure. You can make a decision for yourself based upon probability. That’s as good as it gets.
