FTR #837 Cauldron: Update on Ukraine

With the possibility of nuclear war lurking over the political horizon, the tragi-comic nature of Western and U.S. journalistic coverage of Ukraine continues to appall. Citing phony photographs provided by associates of the Ukrainian government, as well as “evidence” provided by Cold War spin-off company DigitalGlobe, the U.S. is leaving itself vulnerable to the possibility of provocation by the OUN/B heirs it has supported in Kiev. As the halting investigation into the Maidan coup and the sniper attacks that precipitated it generates more information, it is becoming clearer that sniper fire at the Maidan demonstrations may well have originated with the anti-government forces controlled by the Nazi Svoboda and similar organizations. Major points of discussion in this program include: the continued influx of foreign nationals to run the “Ukrainian” government; the criminal record of former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili, a newly appointed adviser to Poroshenko; continued portrayal of Ukrainian Nazi storm troopers as credible journalistic sources; slips by Ukrainian media personnel indicating the false nature of reports of Russian invasion; nuclear saber rattling by a high-ranking Ukrainian government official; a plan to shoot deserters from the Ukrainian army.


Echoes of Maidan: Yugoslavia (Yesterday); Ukraine (Today)

We’ve been covering information pointing to the sniper fire that ignited the Maidan coup as having come from the anti-government forces. Not surprisingly, personnel from Svoboda and the fascist “punisher battalions” crop up repeatedy in the unfolding narrative. German-Foreign-Policy.com features a comparison with the “cooking” of journalistic information about Ukraine with what took place in the former Yugoslavia, the NATO operation against Kosovo, in particular.

FTR #828 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

As the title indicates this program brings up to date a number of stories covered in the past and introduces some new topics of discussion. The topics covered include: JFK’s 1963 attempts at normalizing relations with Cuba; new information casting doubt on the “lone nut” theory of the 2001 anthrax attacks (which fingered Bruce Ivins as a “lone nut” perpetrator); Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s suppression of political dissent, echoing the policies of Francisco Franco; a Catholic mass held to honor the memory of the murderous World War II Ustachi leader Ante Pavelic; the global economic elites’ pursuit of the same economic policies that drove people into the arms of fascism in the 1930’s; Ayn Rand’s role in investigating the 1940’s movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” as possible crypto-Communist propaganda; the GOP’s implementation of fraudulent “dynamic scoring” economic evaluation; theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s warning that the development of Artificial Intelligence could threaten the existence of humanity; Mr. Emory’s 1995 warning that the development of Artificial Intelligence could threaten the existence of humanity.


FTR #826 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian Style, Part 2

In FTR #824, we noted the decisive role played by the Ukrainian diaspora in the events unfolding in Eastern Europe. Petro Poroshenko is implementing a legal gambit to permit foreign nationals to assume cabinet positions in his new government. In particular, Poroshenko expressed the desire to incorporate citizens of the U.S., Georgia and Lithuania in Ukraine’s government. In short order, Ukrainian/American State Department Officer Natalie Jaresko, Lithuanian-born U.S. citizen Airvas Abramovicius and Georgian Aleksandre Kvitashvili assumed the posts of finance minister, economic and development and trade minister and health minister respectively. All three were educated in the United States. Jaresko is a former State Department officer with close links to the US Agency for International Development. The appointments come as Ukraine is close to defaulting on a $17bn IMF loan and members of Ukraine’s fascist volunteer battalions are lobbying Congress for military aid. Poroshenko is also granting citizenship to foreign-born neo-Nazis, as well as instituting an information ministry that critics have compared to The Ministry of Truth from George Orwell’s 1984.


FTR #824 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian-Style: The Evolution and Triumph of Ukrainian Fascism

Supplementing previous work about the Ukrainian crisis–one which might spark a nuclear war–we note the decisive role of the OUN/B diaspora in the coalescence of fascism in that troubled nation. The U.S., Canada joined Ukraine as the only nations to vote against a U.N. General Assembly resolution condemning the glorification of Nazi collaborators as “freedom fighters,” probably because of the large OUN/B contingents present in those countries. (Germany and the other EU nations abstained.) Most of the broadcast accesses a very important article by George Eliason detailing the historical background of the Ukrainian diaspora, tracing the roots of Ukrainian, central and Eastern European fascism to the 19th century ultra-nationalist exceptionalism fostered by the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nurtured by the Promethean League between the World Wars, Nazi Germany during the Second World War and the Western democracies during the Cold War, that virulent, bloody ideology triumphed after the breakup of the U.S.S.R. The program concludes by noting that Poroshenko has proposed bringing in citizens of the U.S., Lithuania and Georgia to staff the Ukrainian federal police.


Stunning: U.S. Votes AGAINST U.N. Resolution Condemning Nazis and Nazi Collaborators

This past week, the U.S. was one of three countries to vote against a U.N. resolution condemning the celebration of Nazi collaborators as “freedom fighters”–something the U.S. has been promoting since the end of World War II. Germany and the EU nations abstained. Ukraine itself and Canada were the other countries that voted against the resolution. The OUN/B diaspora and its influence in the GOP and intelligence services of the U.S. is the primary consideration to be weighed in connection with this disgraceful episode.

German Economic Colonization of Ukraine

With the U.S. and Germany respectively playing Bad Cop (military aid and sanctions) and Good Cop (economic aid and resistance to further sanctions at the behest of key German corporations invested in Russia), the follow-up to the covert operation resulting in the coup d’etat of early 2014 is proceeding apace. German industry–surprise, surprise–plans to modernize Ukrainian industries and establish subcontracting arrangements to build automobiles in that cheap labor market. This will be coupled by the austerity doctrine we have termed “Von Clausewitzian economics.”


Horror Show in the Balkans

The NATO-installed regime of Hasim Thaci manifests pervasive political and social criminality. Thaci is alleged to maintain a harem of more than 50 sex slaves, held in bondage by his bodyguards and reportedly offering their favors to KFOR and EULEX personnel. Successors to the 21st Waffen SS (“Skanderbeg”) Division and other fascist fighting formations from World War II, the Kosovo Liberation Army has turned that former Serbian province into little more than a German colony. Much of the international community continues to view Kosovo as a criminal entity operating outside the envelope of international law.
