Putin vs. Comrade Wolf: Showdown in Ukraine stems from Brzezinski's desire to chop Russia into pieces


Puppets on the Grand Chessboard
"Comrade Wolf knows who to eat, and he eats without listening to anyone."

- Russian President Vladimir Putin referring to the United States
The Ukraine crisis has its roots in a policy that dates back nearly 20 years. The origins of the policy can be traced to a 1997 article in Foreign Policy magazine by Zbigniew Brzezinski, titled "A Geostrategy for Eurasia." The article makes the case that the United States needs to forcefully establish itself in Central Asia in order to maintain its position as the world's only superpower. While many readers may be familiar with Brzezinski's thinking on these matters, they might not know what he has to say about Russia, which is particularly illuminating given that the recent uptick in violence has less to do with Ukraine than it does with Washington's proxy-war on Russia. Here's what Brzezinski says:

Comment: It's not so much Washington's plan to conquer the world as it is that Washington already believes itself to have already conquered the world, and someone is standing up to say, 'No, the facts on the ground state otherwise.'

This, from the horse's mouth, neatly sums up America's official position on the EU:
Europe is America's essential geopolitical bridgehead in Eurasia
In other words, it's our colony on the 'World-Island' landmass!

As for this being a 20-year-long conflict, arguably it's part of a pattern that is HUNDREDS of years old! Before Brzezinski there was Halford Mackinder and before the U.S. obsession with making Russia out to be evil there was Britain's obsession with making Russia out to be evil.

Who is the new secret buyer of U.S. debt? And what is their intention?

IMF Meeting

On the surface, the economic atmosphere of the U.S. has appeared rather calm and uneventful. Stocks are up, employment isn't great but jobs aren't collapsing into the void (at least not openly), and the U.S. dollar seems to be going strong. Peel away the thin veneer, however, and a different financial horror show is revealed.

U.S. stocks have enjoyed unprecedented crash protection due to a steady infusion of fiat money from the Federal Reserve known as quantitative easing. With the advent of the "taper", QE is now swiftly coming to a close (as is evident in the overall reduction in treasury market purchases), and is slated to end by this fall, if not sooner.

Employment has been boosted only in statistical presentation, and not in reality. The Labor Department's creative accounting of job numbers omits numerous factors, the most important being the issue of long term unemployed. Millions of people who have been jobless for so long they no longer qualify for benefits are being removed from the rolls. This quiet catastrophe has the side bonus of making it appear as though unemployment is going down.

U.S. Treasury bonds, and by extension the dollar, have also stayed afloat due to the river of stimulus being introduced by the Federal Reserve. That same river, through QE, is now drying up.

The Saker's mini Ukraine situation report - May 21: Jen Psaki's latest lie

psaki

It's not really news, but it still amazes me: for two days in a row now, Jen Psaki, speaking for the regime in Washington, has declared that the USA has doubts about the real affiliation of the Russian journalists working for the Russian news outlet LifeNews. Even though the professional record of these journalists is in the public domain and very well known (they have worked for many years, including abroad), Mrs Psaki believes it is possible that they were spies. Ditto for the reporters of Russia Today which are still being held incommunicado.

Also in the news, the house of Oleg Tsarev has finally been burned.

I say 'finally', because:

1) The oligarch-mobster Kolomoisky had promised that to Tsarev
2) Tsarev had predicted that too
3) The house next to Tsarev had already been torched by mistake


I suppose that Mrs Psaki will speak of a "natural fire", or "spontaneous combustion" or even an "operation of Russian special forces" and threaten Russia with more sanctions.

As for the Western media, it couldn't care less. Just like when Uncle Sam bombed the TV station in Belgrade. After all, anybody opposing the AngloZionist Empire is a) a propagandist and b) subhuman.

Comment: The logic of the AngloZionist Empire is close. It works much better when flipped: Anybody who supports it (and by default, the 'government' in Kiev) is either a) a propagandist (i.e., a govt/military-hired cyber troll) or b) a psychopath. Only a psychopath can justify and support the junta's criminal, inhuman actions over the previous months.

27 huge red flags for the U.S. economy

If you believe that the U.S. economy is heading in the right direction, you really need to read this article. As we look toward the second half of 2014, there are economic red flags all over the place. Industrial production is down. Home sales are way down. Retail stores are closing at the fastest pace since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. U.S. household debt is up substantially, and in 20 percent of all U.S. families everyone is unemployed.

In so many ways, what we are witnessing right now is so similar to what we experienced during the build up to the last great financial crisis. We are making so many of the very same mistakes that we made the last time, and yet our "leaders" seem completely oblivious to what is happening. But the warning signs are very clear. All you have to do is open your eyes and look at them. The following are 27 huge red flags for the U.S. economy...

#1 Despite endless assurances from the Obama administration that we are in an "economic recovery", the number one concern for U.S. voters is "Unemployment/Jobs" according to a recent Gallup survey.

Comment: Economic collapse is inevitable, and it's going to hit the U.S. hardest. So says last week's guest on SOTT Talk Radio, Dmitry Orlov.

Deliberate chaos prevails in Ukraine, but Putin isn't taking the bait

Russian journalist captured by Kiev junta
I think that we can all agree that the situation in the Ukraine is one of total chaos.
  • Renat Akhmetov, the local oligarch-mobster, had declared that his companies will go on a "warning strike" for 3 hours per day because Akhmetov was angered that the authorities of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) had taken over the control of the railways which resulted in losses for his company.
  • One of the officials of the DRP reacted to Akhmetov's threat by declaring that the DRP authorities have begun the process of nationalization of the companies located on the territory of the DRP, in other words, Akhmetov's holdings.
  • The military forces of the neo-Nazi junta have begun shelling several cities in eastern Ukraine, destroying several buildings
  • The military commander of the DRP forces, Igor Strelkov, has made a poignant and blunt appeal for a much bigger mobilization of men, especially officers, in the volunteer forces defending the DRP against the junta's military.
  • Ukrainian death-squads have, yet again, kidnapped a team of Russian reporters, this time of the TV station LifeNews, accusing them of being the "information-component" of a terrorist movement.
  • The Russian government has indicated that the military forces, which had been on maneuvers, have returned to their bases. NATO denied that.
  • The Russian military has completed the building of a network of pipelines which are now fully supplying Crimea with fresh water.
  • The leader of the Ukie Nazis, Yarosh, has announced that if he is elected he would launc a guerrilla war in Crimea.


So, what is really going on?

I think that while it is premature to make grand conclusions and predictions, we can begin by agreeing on a number of basic facts.

Yes, just imagine... If Russia had toppled the Canadian government

Just imagine if the democratically-elected government of Canada had been toppled in a Russian-financed coup, in which far-right extremists and neo-Nazis played a prominent role.

That the new unelected 'government' in Ottawa cancelled the law giving the French language official status, appointed a billionaire oligarch to run Quebec and signed an association agreement with a Russian-led trade bloc.

Just imagine...

If Russia had spent $5 billion on regime change in Canada and then a leading Canadian energy firm had appointed to its board of directors the son of a top Russian government politician.

Just imagine...

If the Syrian government had hosted a meeting in Damascus of the 'Friends of Britain'- a group of countries who supported the violent overthrow of David Cameron's government.

That the Syrian government and its allies gave the anti-government 'rebels' in Britain millions of pounds and other support, and failed to condemn 'rebel' groups when they killed British civilians and bombed schools, hospitals and universities.

That the Syrian Foreign Minister dismissed next year's scheduled general election in the UK as a 'parody of democracy' and said that Cameron must stand down before any elections are held.

The birth of a Eurasian century: Russia and China do Pipelineistan


China is building its own pipeline networks to help deliver Russia's resources to its people and for export.
A specter is haunting Washington, an unnerving vision of a Sino-Russian alliance wedded to an expansive symbiosis of trade and commerce across much of the Eurasian land mass -- at the expense of the United States.

And no wonder Washington is anxious. That alliance is already a done deal in a variety of ways: through the BRICS group of emerging powers (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa); at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Asian counterweight to NATO; inside the G20; and via the 120-member-nation Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). Trade and commerce are just part of the future bargain. Synergies in the development of new military technologies beckon as well. After Russia's Star Wars-style, ultra-sophisticated S-500 air defense anti-missile system comes online in 2018, Beijing is sure to want a version of it. Meanwhile, Russia is about to sell dozens of state-of-the-art Sukhoi Su-35 jet fighters to the Chinese as Beijing and Moscow move to seal an aviation-industrial partnership.

This week should provide the first real fireworks in the celebration of a new Eurasian century-in-the-making when Russian President Vladimir Putin drops in on Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing. You remember "Pipelineistan," all those crucial oil and gas pipelines crisscrossing Eurasia that make up the true circulatory system for the life of the region. Now, it looks like the ultimate Pipelineistan deal, worth $1 trillion and 10 years in the making, will be inked as well. In it, the giant, state-controlled Russian energy giant Gazprom will agree to supply the giant state-controlled China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) with 3.75 billion cubic feet of liquefied natural gas a day for no less than 30 years, starting in 2018. That's the equivalent of a quarter of Russia's massive gas exports to all of Europe. China's current daily gas demand is around 16 billion cubic feet a day, and imports account for 31.6% of total consumption.

Odessa Massacre - What REALLY Happened: VIDEO

Contrary to what the mainstream media has tried to convince you, it's not at all a mystery how the fire started in Odessa, Ukraine and it's not at all a mystery who started it. We owe it to the victims to expose what really happened.


Comment: Since this video was uploaded, new leaked phone conversations have surfaced suggesting it was indeed Kiev behind the Odessa and Mariupol massacres, namely oligarch and governor of Dnepropetrovsk Igor Kolomoisky.

Signs of change: Extreme weather, seismic activity, and meteor fireballs in April and early May 2014

The uptick in earthquake activity continues all along the Ring of Fire. At the center of these changes, the United States dealt with "historic flooding" which was labelled a "one-in-500-year event"!

So much more has taken place over the last month or so than this video shows. Deluges continue to hit heavily populated areas. Be prepared for large-scale disasters in your area. It has and it will continue to worsen, whether we like or not. Stay safe and thanks for watching!
