FTR#1244 How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lie?, Part 17

First of a pro­ject­ed four-part dis­cus­sion of the deci­sive­ly impor­tant work of for­mer Swiss intel­li­gence offi­cer Jacques Baud, this pro­gram presents and details fun­da­men­tals of the Ukraine war and the his­to­ry lead­ing up to it. This analy­sis will be sup­ple­ment­ed in the remain­ing pro­grams in the series.

His CV is pre­sent­ed below, and will be sup­ple­ment­ed by more detail in an inter­view pre­sent­ed with him.

The read­ing of this arti­cle will be con­tin­ued in our next pro­gram. For the con­ve­nience and ben­e­fit of the audi­ence, the entire arti­cle is pre­sent­ed in this descrip­tion. 

Baud points out that the pre­sen­ta­tion of the war in the West is bad­ly skewed, with politi­cians and media pur­su­ing ide­ol­o­gized fan­tasies, rather than sub­stan­tive analy­sis com­ing from intel­li­gence agen­cies.

The essence of Baud’s war analy­sis is pre­sen­ta­tion of com­pelling doc­u­men­ta­tion that the Ukraine war was begun by the West—the U.S. and NATO in particular—in order to weak­en Rus­sia.

Facil­i­tat­ing a mur­der­ous pro­gram of sys­tem­at­ic atroc­i­ty com­mit­ted by Ukraine’s gov­ern­ment against the Russ­ian-speak­ing minor­i­ty of Ukraine, it is the West and the Biden admin­is­tra­tion in par­tic­u­lar, that bear respon­si­bil­i­ty for the con­flict.

As will be seen, analy­sis of the actu­al con­flict itself is fun­da­men­tal­ly skewed in the U.S. and Europe. Far from being “incom­pe­tent,” Rus­sia quick­ly exe­cut­ed maneu­ver war­fare to cut-off the bulk of the Ukrain­ian army, which was poised for a lethal offen­sive against the Russ­ian-speak­ing East.

Russia’s pri­ma­ry objective—completely mis­un­der­stood in the West and sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly mis­rep­re­sent­ed by polit­i­cal and media inter­ests alike—was large­ly achieved with­in a short peri­od.

The Russ­ian forces occu­pied ter­ri­to­ry rough­ly equiv­a­lent to the U.K in a mat­ter of days, fix­ing Ukrain­ian forces with a diver­sion­ary move toward Kiev, elim­i­nat­ing Ukraine’s abil­i­ty to move large num­bers of troops and trap­ping the pri­ma­ry Ukrain­ian forces in the East.

This will be more com­plete­ly dis­cussed, ana­lyzed and pre­sent­ed in the remain­ing pro­grams fea­tur­ing Baud’s work.

 Key Points of Analy­sis and Dis­cus­sion Include: Baud’s first-hand involve­ment in NATO train­ing of the Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary; Baud’s for­mer posi­tion as chief of Swiss intelligence’s divi­sion on War­saw pact forces dur­ing the Cold War; Baud’s exten­sive UN expe­ri­ence on pro­lif­er­a­tion of small arms, their dis­tri­b­u­tion to civil­ian pop­u­la­tions and the dele­te­ri­ous effects of that dis­tri­b­u­tion; The fun­da­men­tal, insti­tu­tion­al­ized dis­tor­tion of the conflict—politicians and media ignor­ing real­i­ty (includ­ing and espe­cial­ly that pre­sent­ed by intel­li­gence pro­fes­sion­als) and incul­cat­ing the pub­lic (and them­selves) with an inflam­ma­to­ry, demon­stra­bly false nar­ra­tive that engen­ders a dan­ger­ous pol­i­cy of esca­la­tion; The essen­tial mis­un­der­stand­ing of the gen­e­sis of the Ukrain­ian con­flict; The cen­tral issue of the post-Maid­an government’s ban­ning of the Russ­ian lan­guage in Ukraine’s East­ern dis­tricts; The fun­da­men­tal mis­un­der­stand­ing of, and mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of, the civ­il war in Ukraine’s East as a dynam­ic involv­ing “Russ­ian Sep­a­ratists” and “inter­fer­ence” by Putin; Putin’s advice to the Russ­ian-speak­ing East­ern dis­tricts NOT to seek a ref­er­en­dum on auton­o­my; The Ukrain­ian government’s launch of an ill-fat­ed mil­i­tary sup­pres­sion against those dis­tricts; The fun­da­men­tal cor­rup­tion and inep­ti­tude of the post-Maid­an Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary; The false nar­ra­tive dis­trib­uted in the west that Rus­sia was involved in any way with the civ­il war in East­ern Ukraine; The fail­ure of the civ­il war against the East­ern dis­tricts because of that inep­ti­tude; The defec­tion of large “maneu­ver” units of the Ukrain­ian armed forces—armor, artillery and mis­sile for­ma­tions; The mon­u­men­tal fail­ure to report for duty of the Ukrain­ian reserve per­son­nel; Ukraine’s piv­ot to NATO to form the Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary; Jacques Baud’s role in that attempt­ed for­ma­tion; NATO’s cre­ation of the fas­cist “reprisal units,” exem­pli­fied by the Azov Reg­i­ment; The Azov regiment’s sym­bol­ic, and his­tor­i­cal nos­tal­gia for the ”Das Reich” Division—2nd Waf­fen SS; The oper­a­tional strength of the NATO-cre­at­ed fas­cist ter­ri­to­r­i­al defense units—102,000; The real­i­ty behind a 2021” hijack­ing of a RyanAir flight in Belarus; the fact that the “journalist”—Roman Protassevitch—was a promi­nent mem­ber of the Azov reg­i­ment; the fact that the action was in keep­ing with the rules of force; The war’s gen­e­sis with a Ukrain­ian cam­paign to con­quer and dec­i­mate the Russ­ian-speak­ing regions of the East; the Duma’s advo­ca­cy of diplo­mat­ic recog­ni­tion for the Russ­ian-speak­ing regions; Putin’s ini­tial refusal to rec­og­nize the regions; France and the West’s refusal to imple­ment the Min­sk Agree­ments; France and the West’s insis­tence on direct con­fronta­tion between Ukraine and Rus­sia; The Ukraine’s ini­ti­a­tion of the con­flict by bom­bard­ing the Russ­ian-speak­ing dis­tricts and mass­ing their army for an all-out assault; Putin’s grant­i­ng of the Duma’s request and diplo­mat­ic recog­ni­tion of the inde­pen­dence of the Russ­ian-speak­ing regions; Those regions’ request for mil­i­tary assis­tance; Putin’s pos­i­tive response to that request, ini­ti­at­ing the con­flict; The Russ­ian strat­e­gy of using pres­sure on Kiev as a diver­sion, draw­ing Ukrain­ian forces around it and per­mit­ting the encir­clement of the bulk of the Ukrain­ian army in East­ern Ukraine; The West’s fun­da­men­tal mis­un­der­stand­ing of Putin’s and Russia’s war aims, due to their own strate­gic and oper­a­tional myopia; The “slow­down” of Russ­ian oper­a­tions, due to the fact that they have already achieved their objec­tive; The “reprisal” units’ delib­er­ate block­ing of civil­ian evac­u­a­tion cor­ri­dors, so that the civil­ians can be used to delib­er­ate­ly impede Russ­ian mil­i­tary progress; The West’s manip­u­la­tion of Zelen­sky and Ukraine, in essence brib­ing him with arms pur­chas­es to “bleed Rus­sia;” The dis­tri­b­u­tion of small arms to Ukrain­ian urban pop­u­la­tions, a devel­op­ment that Baud feels will lead to atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted against fel­low civil­ians; The strong prob­a­bil­i­ty that the Azov Reg­i­ment was using the Mar­i­upol mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal as a strate­gic van­tage point, and that the Rus­sians fired on it as a legit­i­mate mil­i­tary tar­get; The West­’s using of that “War Crime” to jus­ti­fy fur­ther arms ship­ments; The West­’s sys­tem­at­ic dis­tor­tion and “weaponiza­tion” of war cov­er­age; The joint secu­ri­ty pro­vid­ed to the Cher­nobyl nuclear plant by BOTH Ukrain­ian and Russ­ian sol­diers to pre­vent sab­o­tage.

Important 4‑Part Patreon Series on Covid “Op” Now Available

Mr. Emory has com­plet­ed a four-part analy­sis the Covid-19 “op.” A more com­pact, less pedan­tic for­mat than the mas­sive For The Record series done over a two-year peri­od, this pre­sen­ta­tion offers lis­ten­ers an excel­lent overview on what may be the most impor­tant issue of our time. The Patre­on series on the Covid-19 op flesh­es out dis­cus­sion with analy­sis of the Amer­i­can Deep State, con­ti­nu­ity from the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion to those of Trump and Biden—concluding with infor­ma­tion about the appar­ent bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram in Ukraine—a man­i­fes­ta­tion of the BW pro­gram that spawned the pan­dem­ic. Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24. WFMU-FM is pod­cast­ing For The Record–You can sub­scribe to the pod­cast HERE. Mr. Emory emphat­i­cal­ly rec­om­mends that listeners/readers get the 32GB flash dri­ve con­tain­ing all of Mr. Emory’s 43 years on the air, plus a library of old anti-fas­cist books on easy-to-down­load PDF files.

FTR#1243 How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lies?, Part 16

This pro­gram con­tin­ues our cov­er­age of Ukraine.

The title of the series comes from the 1976 auto­bi­og­ra­phy Heart­land by the late,  bril­liant polit­i­cal come­di­an Mort Sahl, one of New Orleans DA Jim Gar­rison’s inves­ti­ga­tors his probe of Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion.

Amid the high­ly politi­cized accounts of alleged “Russ­ian atroc­i­ties” in the Ukraine war, it is of the high­est impor­tance to remem­ber that the “news” reach­ing the West is com­ing exclu­sive­ly through the Ukrain­ian secu­ri­ty author­i­ties, chiefly the Azov-imprint­ed Ukrain­ian Nation­al Police and the asso­ci­at­ed Inte­ri­or Min­istry, which retains the dom­i­nant influ­ence of Azov-asso­ci­at­ed Arsen Avakov and Vadim Troyan–the for­mer head of the Ukrain­ian nation­al police and, before that, Deputy Com­man­der of the Azov Bat­tal­ion.

Fur­ther cloud­ing access to accu­rate infor­ma­tion about what is actu­al­ly occur­ring in the war is an accel­er­at­ed Amer­i­can dis­in­for­ma­tion process enthu­si­as­ti­cal­ly tout­ing dubi­ous intel­li­gence as a vehi­cle for—supposedly—“getting inside Putin’s head.”

It is high­ly unlike­ly that the pur­vey­ors of that low-qual­i­ty intel­li­gence are actu­al­ly try­ing to influ­ence Putin. The low-grade intel­li­gence is more like­ly to be direct­ed at the Amer­i­can peo­ple.

Also worth con­tem­plat­ing is the grotesque his­to­ry of U.S. disinformation—a track record of egre­gious, offi­cial lying that dom­i­nates the Amer­i­can polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal land­scape.

The assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy, the Viet­nam War that, in large mea­sure, result­ed from that mur­der, the killings of Mar­tin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Iraq War and count­less oth­er fun­da­men­tal offi­cial polit­i­cal lies do not appear to have taught the Amer­i­can peo­ple any­thing!

Their appetite for b.s. appears undi­min­ished.

Next, we vis­it the satel­lite pho­tos, also alleged­ly show­ing pho­tos of the alleged “Russ­ian atroc­i­ties” in Bucha, includ­ing the dig­ging of the alleged mass grave to hold vic­tims of said abom­i­na­tions.

Maxar is the com­pa­ny whose satel­lite pho­tos are high­light­ed by our media to demon­strate the alleged atroc­i­ties.

Maxar, in turn, is the par­ent com­pa­ny of Dig­i­tal­Globe, a firm start­ed by vet­er­ans of Ronald Reagan’s Strate­gic Defense Ini­tia­tive (“Star Wars”).

Grow­ing out of late 1992 leg­is­la­tion that legal­ized the entry of pri­vate firms into the strate­gic recon­nais­sance satel­lite busi­ness, Dig­i­tal­Globe was the source of pro­pa­gan­dized pic­tures alleg­ing a Russ­ian “inva­sion” of Ukraine in 2014!

 DigitalGlobe/Maxar’s track record war­rants scruti­ny of the firm’s “evi­dence” in the con­text of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.”

More about Maxar can be found here: https://spitfirelist.com/for-the-record/ftr1237-how-many-lies-before-you-belong-to-the-lie-part-10/comment-page‑1/#comment-370595

In FTR#808, we set forth infor­ma­tion about Dig­i­tal­Globe.

The satel­lite imagery pur­port­ing to show Russ­ian armor and self-pro­pelled artillery inside of Ukraine comes from a pri­vate company–DigitalGlobe. That com­pa­ny was found­ed by key per­son­nel from Ronald Rea­gan’s Strate­gic Defense Ini­tia­tive.

Dig­i­tal­Globe co-founder Doug Gerull had pre­vi­ous­ly worked for the Zeiss firm, dis­cussed in FTR #272 as one of the German/Underground Reich/Bormann firms that were mov­ing into satel­lite imagery tech­nol­o­gy in the U.S.

An arti­cle pub­lished after FTR#808 was record­ed not­ed the dubi­ous nature of the claims of a “Russ­ian Inva­sion” of Ukraine.

A major con­sid­er­a­tion to be weighed con­cerns the Azov-imprint­ed Ukrain­ian police’s use of an Amer­i­can AI facial recog­ni­tion soft­ware called Clearview.

The brain­child of Alt-right lynch­pin Charles John­son, Clearview received key start-up invest­ment cap­i­tal from Peter Thiel, one of the dri­ving forces behind Trump and a major play­er in the Big Tech and elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance scene.

Crit­ics have expressed con­cern about Clearview’s poten­tial for abuse. Note that the firm uses a data­base of 20 bil­lion faces, scraped from social media.

Piv­ot­ing to the sub­ject of appar­ent Russ­ian dis­cov­er­ies of an advanced Amer­i­can-financed bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram in Ukraine, we access the com­men­tary of M.K. Bhadraku­mar, a for­mer Indi­an diplo­mat.

Bhadraku­mar under­scores some ter­ri­fy­ing aspects of the appar­ent B.W. pro­gram, includ­ing “dig­i­tized” migra­to­ry birds, tracked by satel­lite and fit­ted with cap­sules of dead­ly microbes. When the birds are over a tar­get­ed coun­try, they can be killed, trig­ger­ing a pan­dem­ic.

” . . . . A mind-bog­gling ‘dis­cov­ery’ that Russ­ian forces in Ukraine stum­bled upon is the use of num­bered birds by the Pen­ta­gon-fund­ed labs. . . . On the basis of this data, groups of migra­to­ry birds are caught, dig­i­tized and cap­sules of germs are attached to them that car­ry a chip to be con­trolled through com­put­ers. . . . Dur­ing the long flight of the birds that have been dig­i­tized in the Pen­ta­gon bio-labs, their move­ment is mon­i­tored step by step by means of satel­lites and the exact loca­tions are deter­mined. . . . Dur­ing the long flight of the birds that have been dig­i­tized in the Pen­ta­gon bio-labs, their move­ment is mon­i­tored step by step by means of satel­lites and the exact loca­tions are deter­mined. . . . The idea is that if the Biden Admin­is­tra­tion (or the CIA) has a require­ment to inflict harm on, say, Rus­sia or Chi­na (or India for that mat­ter), the chip is destroyed when the bird is in their skies.  Plain­ly put, kill the bird car­ry­ing the epi­dem­ic. . . . once the ‘dig­i­tized’ bird is killed and the cap­sule of germs it car­ries is released, the dis­ease spreads in the ‘X’ or ‘Y’ coun­try. It becomes a high­ly cost-effec­tive method of harm­ing an ene­my coun­try with­out any need of war or coup d’état or col­or rev­o­lu­tion. The Rus­sians have made the shock­ing claim that they are actu­al­ly in pos­ses­sion of such migra­to­ry birds dig­i­tized in the Pentagon’s bio-labs. . . .”

A 2014 blog post details a 1960’s pro­gram in India that may have been a pre­cur­sor to the appar­ent “digitized/weaponized” migra­to­ry birds pro­gram in Ukraine. 

” . . . . It appeared that a unit of the U.S. Army called Migra­to­ry Ani­mal Patho­log­i­cal Sur­vey was inter­est­ed in the project. The Army’s inter­est lay in know­ing whether bac­te­ria were being trans­mit­ted by the migrat­ing birds. The project offered an excel­lent means of inves­ti­ga­tion and there­fore had acquired an omi­nous sig­nif­i­cance. . . .”

Anoth­er pos­si­ble 1960’s pre­cur­sor of the “migra­to­ry birds of mass destruc­tion” in Ukraine was a pro­gram to place vora­cious, dis­ease-car­ry­ing Lone Star ticks in the Atlantic Fly­way, through which migra­to­ry birds trav­el from Latin Amer­i­ca through to the Amer­i­can North­east.

” . . . . The sites were locat­ed on the Atlantic Fly­way, the migra­to­ry bird super­high­way that runs along the east­ern South Amer­i­can and North Amer­i­can coasts. . . . . . . . Lone star ticks have sev­er­al sur­vival advan­tages over their deer tick cousins. They don’t wait patient­ly on a stalk of grass for pass­ing prey; they are active hunters that crawl toward any car­bon diox­ide-emit­ting ani­mal, includ­ing birds. . . . But in the 1970s, these ticks began rapid­ly expand­ing their range. 7 The first lone star tick observed on Mon­tauk, Long Island, was in 1971, and as of 2018, estab­lished pop­u­la­tions have been observed as far north as Maine. 8 . . . .  All this begs the ques­tion: What is dri­ving this mass migra­tion of the lone star tick and its dis­ease-caus­ing hitch­hik­ers north­ward? . . . .”

The pro­gram con­cludes with review of a Dai­ly Mail arti­cle high­light­ing [con­firmed] e‑mails from Hunter Biden’s lap­top that par­tial­ly con­firm Russ­ian dis­cov­er­ies of U.S.-financed bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram in Ukraine.


FTR#1241 and FTR#1242: How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lies?, Parts 14 and 15

Con­tin­u­ing our cov­er­age of the Ukraine War, we note Gen­nadiy Druzenko–the head of Ukraine’s Mil­i­tary Med­ical Ser­vice– and his order to cas­trate all Russ­ian POW’s.

Can you imag­ine the media uproar if the head of Rus­si­a’s mil­i­tary med­ical branch gave an order to cas­trate all Ukrain­ian POW’s?

The pro­gram begins with a syn­op­tic, tele­scoped view of the OUN/B, a key com­po­nent of the Gehlen “Org,” itself a front for the Odessa–the Nazi SS post­war oper­a­tional under­ground.

The pro­gram begins with a syn­op­tic, tele­scoped view of the OUN/B, a key com­po­nent of the Gehlen “Org,” itself a front for the Odessa–the Nazi SS post­war oper­a­tional under­ground.

” . . . . His [Gehlen’s] FHO was con­nect­ed in this role with a num­ber of secret fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions in the coun­tries to Ger­many’s east. These includ­ed Stepan Ban­der­a’s ‘B Fac­tion’ of the Orga­ni­za­tion of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists (OUN/B),15Romania’s Iron Guard,16 the Ustachis of Yugoslavia,17 the Vanagis of Latvia. . . .  The mil­i­tary intel­li­gence his­to­ri­an Colonel William Cor­son put it most suc­cinct­ly, ‘Gehlen’s orga­ni­za­tion was designed to pro­tect the Odessa Nazis. It amounts to an excep­tion­al­ly well-orches­trat­ed diver­sion.’. . .”

The dis­cus­sion access­es a post Mr. Emory craft­ed in Novem­ber of 2015.

Pravy Sek­tor asso­ciate Valen­tyn Naly­vaichenko had been the head of the SBU (Ukrain­ian intel­li­gence ser­vice) since the Maid­an Coup, up until his ouster in June of 2015. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, he had oper­at­ed the orga­ni­za­tion along the lines of the OUN/B.

Pre­vi­ous­ly, he had served in that same capac­i­ty under Vik­tor Yuschenko, see­ing the out­fit as a vehi­cle for rewrit­ing Ukraine’s his­to­ry in accor­dance with the his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ism favored by the OUN/B.

Very close to Pravy Sek­tor head Dymitro Yarosh, Naly­vaichenko employed Yarosh while serv­ing in the Ukrain­ian par­lia­ment.  Yarosh claims that the two col­lab­o­rat­ed on “anti-ter­ror­ist” oper­a­tions con­duct­ed against eth­nic Rus­sians.

Bear in mind that the SBU has been the “cog­ni­tive win­dow” through which the events in Ukraine have been processed.

The “ser­i­al,” cas­cad­ing amal­ga­ma­tion of Ukrain­ian fas­cist nation­al secu­ri­ty ele­ments is exem­pli­fied by Anton Geraschenko, the spelling of whose name varies. A key oper­a­tive of the Azov milieu, he not only shep­herd­ed “Pro­fex­er,” the alleged mas­ter­mind of the DNC “hack,” but may well have been a prin­ci­pal behind the “Pro­pOrNot” list of jour­nal­ists who were “unac­cept­able” to the estab­lish­ment in Ukraine (see below.)

Of para­mount impor­tance as well is the role of the SBU, net­work­ing with the var­i­ous OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions in per­pe­trat­ing ter­ror against the Ukrain­ian pop­u­la­tion.

Do not fail to note for­mer SBU direc­tor Naly­vaichenko’s links to the CIA and to the U.S., via the George W. Bush admin­is­tra­tion.

The fawn­ing West­ern cov­er­age of the Ukraine War may be seen through the lens of Zelen­sky’s “Total War” dec­la­ra­tion: ” . . . . While West­ern media homes in on Russ­ian human rights vio­la­tions at home and inside Ukraine, the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment has autho­rized a pro­pa­gan­da cam­paign known as ‘Total War’ that includes the plant­i­ng of bogus images and false sto­ries to fur­ther impli­cate Rus­sia. . . .”

The OUN/B milieu in the U.S. has appar­ent­ly been instru­men­tal in gen­er­at­ing dis­in­for­ma­tion vis a vis alleged “Russ­ian” dis­in­for­ma­tion in U.S. media.

Note that the Pro­pOrNot group may well be an exten­sion of Anton Geraschenko’s Myrotvotets hacker/journalist intim­i­da­tion group.

” . . . One Pro­pOrNot tweet, dat­ed Novem­ber 17, invokes a 1940s Ukrain­ian fas­cist salute “Hero­iam Slava!!”[17] to cheer a news item on Ukrain­ian hack­ers fight­ing Rus­sians. The phrase means ‘Glo­ry to the heroes’ and it was for­mal­ly intro­duced by the fas­cist Orga­ni­za­tion of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists (OUN) at their March-April 1941 con­gress in Nazi occu­pied Cra­cow, as they pre­pared to serve as Nazi aux­il­iaries in Oper­a­tion Bar­barossa. . . . ‘the OUN‑B intro­duced anoth­er Ukrain­ian fas­cist salute at the Sec­ond Great Con­gress of the Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists in Cra­cow in March and April 1941. This was the most pop­u­lar Ukrain­ian fas­cist salute and had to be per­formed accord­ing to the instruc­tions of the OUN‑B lead­er­ship by rais­ing the right arm ‘slight­ly to the right, slight­ly above the peak of the head’ while call­ing ‘Glo­ry to Ukraine!’ (Sla­va Ukraїni!) and respond­ing ‘Glo­ry to the Heroes!’ (Hero­iam Sla­va!). . . .”

Was “Team Geraschenko” involved in the smear­ing of Robert Par­ry, who was defamed by the Pro­pOrNot group?

” . . . . The web­site, ‘Myrotvorets’ [43] or ‘Peacemaker’—was set up by Ukrain­ian hack­ers work­ing with state intel­li­gence and police, all of which tend to share the same ultra­na­tion­al­ist ide­olo­gies as Paru­biy and the new­ly-appoint­ed neo-Nazi chief of the Nation­al Police. . . . The web­site is designed to fright­en and muz­zle jour­nal­ists from report­ing any­thing but the pro-nation­al­ist par­ty line, and it has the back­ing of gov­ern­ment offi­cials, spies and police—including the SBU (Ukraine’s suc­ces­sor to the KGB), the pow­er­ful Inte­ri­or Min­is­ter Avakov and his noto­ri­ous far-right deputy, Anton Geraschenko [close­ly asso­ci­at­ed with the Azov Bat­tal­ion].

“Ukraine’s jour­nal­ist black­list website—operated by Ukrain­ian hack­ers work­ing with state intelligence—led to a rash of death threats against the doxxed jour­nal­ists, whose email address­es, phone num­bers and oth­er pri­vate infor­ma­tion was post­ed anony­mous­ly to the web­site. Many of these threats came with the wartime Ukrain­ian fas­cist salute: ‘Sla­va Ukrai­ni!’ [Glo­ry to Ukraine!] So when PropOrNot’s anony­mous ‘researchers’ reveal only their Ukrainian(s) iden­ti­ty, it’s hard not to think about the spy-linked hack­ers who post­ed the dead­ly ‘Myrotvorets’ black­list of ‘trea­so­nous’ jour­nal­ists. . . .”

Par­ry sub­se­quent­ly died of a fast-act­ing case of can­cer.

Anton Geraschenko was also involved in han­dling “Profexer”–the dubi­ous alleged crafter of the [out­dat­ed] soft­ware alleged­ly used in the alleged “hack” of the DNC.

In the lat­est Patre­on talk, Mr. Emory delves into man­i­fes­ta­tions of polit­i­cal lying, with the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy as foundation/centerpiece of dis­cus­sion. The role of the Ukrain­ian fas­cist OUN/B and over­lap­ping Anti-Bol­she­vik Bloc of Nations in the JFK assas­si­na­tion com­prise the bulk of the pre­sen­ta­tion.

FTR#1240 How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lies?, Part 13

Main­tain­ing the unten­able PR façade that the Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Ukraine is a myth, Zelen­sky showed the “True Yel­low and Blue” in a video appear­ance before the Greek par­lia­ment.

Appear­ing with a mem­ber of the Nazi Azov fight­ing for­ma­tions, Zelen­sky man­i­fest­ed the grotesque polit­i­cal real­i­ty of which he is part.

“ . . . . On Thurs­day a major row erupt­ed when Zelen­sky brought along a Ukrain­ian sol­dier of Greek her­itage from the city of Mar­i­upol, who just hap­pened to be a mem­ber of the neo-Nazi Azov Reg­i­ment. Greece was under Nazi occu­pa­tion dur­ing World War II and fought a bit­ter par­ti­san war against Nazism (lat­er to be betrayed by Britain and the Unit­ed States.). . . . For­mer Finance Min­is­ter Yanis Varo­ufakis’  MeRA25 par­ty said the event turned into a ‘Nazi fies­ta.’. . .”

Recall that his polit­i­cal patron is Ihor Kolo­moisky, who financed Zelensky’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, owns the TV net­work that boost­ed him to pub­lic promi­nence, who was a major financier of the Azov Bat­tal­ion and who owned a con­trol­ling inter­est in Buris­ma, fea­tur­ing Hunter Biden on the board of direc­tors.

It was in his posi­tion as a Buris­ma direc­tor that Hunter expe­dit­ed the appar­ent bio­log­i­cal war­fare projects over­lap­ping those involved in the “Oswald Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy.”

That places Hunter Biden in the mix of “The Ban­dera Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy,” if you will.

With alle­ga­tions of Russ­ian war crimes being bandied about and the hyper­bole of Joe Biden and oth­ers reach­ing new depths of dis­tor­tion and dis­hon­esty, we exam­ine a sto­ry that rais­es seri­ous ques­tions about anoth­er of the icon­ic “Russ­ian war crimes” inci­dents, the “bomb­ing” of the Mar­i­upol mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal.

Note that Mar­i­upol, like Bucha, is defend­ed by Azov/Nazi mil­i­tary units.

“ . . . .The per­ish­ing of eye­wit­ness­es to the real events at the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal is con­ve­nient for the Asso­ci­at­ed Press and Azov Bat­tal­ion alike. After all, dead peo­ple tell no tales. Hav­ing any­one able to tes­ti­fy to the on-the-ground real­i­ty of inci­dents such as the dubi­ous the­ater bomb­ing or the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal ‘airstrike’ is inher­ent­ly prob­lem­at­ic to the Ukrain­ian cause. . . .”

“ . . . . And though the AP has had reporters on the ground in Ukraine through­out the con­flict with Rus­sia, the orga­ni­za­tion remains silent about trans­gres­sions unfold­ing right before the eyes of its staff. Case in point: the pres­ence of an AP pho­tog­ra­ph­er at the hos­pi­tal gave it a front row seat for Azov Battalion’s occu­pa­tion of the facil­i­ty and its trans­for­ma­tion of the site into a base of oper­a­tions. . . But the agency avoid­ed any men­tion of this crit­i­cal piece of con­text, show­ing West­ern audi­ences what Azov Bat­tal­ion wants them to see. . . .”

“ . . . . On April 2, with­in hours of the pub­li­ca­tion of pho­tos and videos pur­port­ing to show vic­tims of an alleged Russ­ian mas­sacre, Ukrain­ian media report­ed that spe­cial­ist units had begun ‘clear­ing the area of sabo­teurs and accom­plices of Russ­ian troops.’ Noth­ing was said about dead bod­ies in the streets. . . . The Nation­al Police of Ukraine announced that day that they were ‘clean­ing the territory…from the assis­tants of Russ­ian troops,’ pub­lish­ing video that showed no corpses in the streets of Bucha and Ukrain­ian forces in full con­trol of the city. . . .”

Key points of analy­sis and dis­cus­sion include: Res­i­dents attempt­ing to flee the city were pre­vent­ed by the author­i­ties from doing so; the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal had been uti­lized by the Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary; despite the strong prob­a­bil­i­ty that the hos­pi­tal was dam­aged by an artillery shell, AP journalists—apparently embed­ded with Azov combatants—negated the tes­ti­mo­ny of hos­pi­tal patients about the artillery strike; the AP/A­zov-embed­ded jour­nal­ists prop­a­gat­ed the sto­ry that the hos­pi­tal had been hit by a delib­er­ate Russ­ian airstrike; the AP jour­nal­ist who had been the source of the “Russ­ian airstrike” sto­ry had also been at the Maid­an and sym­pa­thet­ic to the Nazi-rich milieu involved in that false-flag oper­a­tion; AP has been dis­trib­ut­ing Azov pho­tographs; the esti­mates of the casu­al­ties in the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal inci­dent are wild­ly incon­sis­tent; there are reports that sur­vivors of the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal attack may have been tak­en to the Mar­i­upol dra­ma the­ater and posi­tioned at the exact place that the “Russ­ian mis­sile” struck in anoth­er dubi­ous “Russ­ian war crime;” West­ern nations have—so far—blocked a Russ­ian request to have the UN inves­ti­gate the Bucha “war crimes;” Both Azov com­bat­ants and Ukrain­ian police were engaged in “clean-up oper­a­tions” in which Russ­ian “col­lab­o­ra­tors” were “dealt with.”

We con­clude with analy­sis of the Geor­gian Legion, an ele­ment of the Ukrain­ian “For­eign Legion” which is impli­cat­ed in the false-flag sniper shoot­ings in the Maid­an coup and has admit­ted com­mit­ting sum­ma­ry exe­cu­tions of Russ­ian POW’s.

The Geor­gian Legion is not an iso­lat­ed, eclipsed enti­ty, but rather, one that is led by Mamu­ka Mamu­lashvili, net­worked with ador­ing U.S. polit­i­cal fig­ures.

“ . . . . In an inter­view this April, Mamu­lashvili, was asked about a video show­ing Russ­ian fight­ers who had been extra­ju­di­cial­ly exe­cut­ed in Dmitro­v­ka, a town just five miles from Bucha. Mamu­lashvili was can­did about his unit’s take-no-pris­on­ers tac­tics, though he has denied involve­ment in the spe­cif­ic crimes depict­ed. ‘We will not take Russ­ian sol­diers, as well as Kady­rovites [Chech­nyan fight­ers]; in any case, we will not take pris­on­ers, not a sin­gle per­son will be cap­tured,’ Mamu­lashvili said, imply­ing that his fight­ers exe­cute POWs. . . .”

As indi­cat­ed above, Mamu­lashvili is impli­cat­ed in the Maid­an false-flag shoot­ings:

“ . . . . [Pro­fes­sor] Ivan Katchanovs­ki, a pro­fes­sor of polit­i­cal sci­ence at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ottawa, is among those who believe Mamulashvili’s allies were like­ly among those who fired on pro­test­ers from build­ings over Maid­an Square, gen­er­at­ing blood­shed that was ulti­mate­ly blamed on Ukraine’s then-gov­ern­ment. . . . ‘Tes­ti­monies by sev­er­al Geor­gian self-admit­ted mem­bers of Maid­an sniper groups for the Maid­an mas­sacre tri­al and inves­ti­ga­tion and their inter­views in Amer­i­can, Ital­ian and Israeli TV doc­u­men­taries and Mace­don­ian and Russ­ian media are gen­er­al­ly con­sis­tent with find­ings of my aca­d­e­m­ic stud­ies of the Maid­an mas­sacre,’ Katchanovs­ki com­ment­ed to The Gray­zone. . . .”

This dis­cus­sion will be con­tin­ued in the next broad­cast.

On the Patreon Site: History of Azov Evolution, From WWII to Present

In the most recent pre­sen­ta­tion on Mr. Emory’s Patre­on site, we chron­i­cle the evo­lu­tion of the Azov man­i­fes­ta­tion from the clos­ing stages of World War II and merg­ing of the Gehlen Org—a front for the Nazi SS—into the CIA. ” . . . . His [Gehlen’s] FHO was con­nect­ed in this role with a num­ber of secret fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions in the coun­tries to Ger­many’s east. These includ­ed Stepan Ban­der­a’s ‘B Fac­tion’ of the Orga­ni­za­tion of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists (OUN/B) . . . . The mil­i­tary intel­li­gence his­to­ri­an Colonel William Cor­son put it most suc­cinct­ly, ‘Gehlen’s orga­ni­za­tion was designed to pro­tect the Odessa Nazis. It amounts to an excep­tion­al­ly well-orches­trat­ed diver­sion.’. . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

FTR#1239 How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lies?, Part 12

This pro­gram con­tin­ues cov­er­age of the Ukraine war with par­tic­u­lar empha­sis on the deci­sive­ly impor­tant over­lap between the insti­tu­tions impli­cat­ed in the cre­ation of SARS CoV‑2 and the Covid-19 “op” and the Pen­ta­gon financ­ing of the appar­ent bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­grams in Ukraine.

A remark­able aspect of the Jour­nal’s cov­er­age of the WHO’s resump­tion of inquiry into the ori­gins of Covid-19 con­cerns a devel­op­ment that has been almost com­plete­ly excised from the West­ern press: ” . . . . For months, China’s gov­ern­ment has insist­ed both in pub­lic, and in pri­vate meet­ings with Dr. Tedros, that stud­ies on the ori­gins of the virus should now focus on oth­er coun­tries, such as Italy, or on a U.S. mil­i­tary biore­search facil­i­ty in Fort Det­rick, Md. Dozens of gov­ern­ments aligned with Chi­na have sent Dr. Tedros let­ters in sup­port of Beijing’s posi­tion, a per­son famil­iar with the let­ters said. . . .”

“Dozens of gov­ern­ments?” Which ones? This sounds like a major inter­na­tion­al dialogue/scandal. 

WHY aren’t we hear­ing about it?

Pom­peo State Depart­ment offi­cials pur­su­ing the lab-leak hypoth­e­sis were told to cov­er it up lest it shed light on U.S. gov­ern­ment fund­ing of research at the “Oswald Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy!”: ” . . . . In one State Depart­ment meet­ing, offi­cials seek­ing to demand trans­paren­cy from the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment say they were explic­it­ly told by col­leagues not to explore the Wuhan Insti­tute of Virology’s gain-of-func­tion research, because it would bring unwel­come atten­tion to U.S. gov­ern­ment fund­ing of it. . . . In an inter­nal memo obtained by Van­i­ty Fair, Thomas DiNan­no, for­mer act­ing assis­tant sec­re­tary of the State Department’s Bureau of Arms Con­trol, Ver­i­fi­ca­tion, and Com­pli­ance, wrote that. . .  staff from two bureaus . . . ‘warned’ lead­ers with­in his bureau ‘not to pur­sue an inves­ti­ga­tion into the ori­gin of COVID-19’ because it would ‘open a can of worms’ if it con­tin­ued.’ . . . . As the group probed the lab-leak sce­nario, among oth­er pos­si­bil­i­ties, its mem­bers were repeat­ed­ly advised not to open a ‘Pandora’s box,’ said four for­mer State Depart­ment offi­cials inter­viewed by Van­i­ty Fair. . . .”

Although heav­i­ly spun–as would be expect­ed from a Dai­ly Mail article–this sto­ry not only has impor­tant impli­ca­tions for the war in Ukraine, but also res­onates with our long series on “The Oswald Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy.”

We note that there are sig­nif­i­cant con­nec­tions between the agency over­see­ing the Ukrain­ian projects and insti­tu­tions impli­cat­ed in the appar­ent “bio-skull­dug­gery” sur­round­ing the U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare gam­bit involv­ing what Mr. Emory has termed “The Oswald Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy.” This is dis­cussed in: FTR#‘s 1157–1159, 1170, 1183 through 1193, and 1215.

The essence of the “Oswald Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy” gam­bit con­cerns the DTRA and Pen­ta­gon fund­ing of bat-borne coro­n­avirus research at the Wuhan Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy, much of it through Peter Dasza­k’s Eco­Health Alliance. Once the research was com­plete, it result­ed in pub­li­ca­tion which includ­ed the genome of the bat virus­es being researched. Using tech­nol­o­gy dis­cussed below, the virus­es were then syn­the­sized from scratch and pop­u­la­tion groups were vec­tored with the same viral strains being researched by the WIV. 

It turns out that Hunter Biden–a mem­ber of the board of direc­tors at Burisma–was instru­men­tal in secur­ing fund­ing for Eco­Health Alliance part­ner Metabio­ta, described in a screen shot of an e‑mail as being “to the DOA what Palan­tir is to CIA.”

Both Eco­Health Alliance and Metabio­ta have been involved with bat-borne coro­n­avirus at the WIV.

Note that–” . . . . ‘His [Hunter Biden’s] father was the Vice Pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States and in charge of rela­tions with Ukraine.’ . . .”

Pre­vi­ous­ly we have not­ed then Vice-Pres­i­dent Joe Biden’s close rela­tion­ship with U.S. Ambas­sador Geof­frey Pyatt and Ukraina­ian fas­cist Andriy Paru­biy dur­ing the Maid­an coup, which cen­tered on false-flag sniper killings from build­ings con­trolled by Svo­bo­da (for­mer­ly the Social Nation­al Par­ty of Ukraine, found­ed by Paru­biy.)

Svo­bo­da occu­pied key posi­tions in the pro­vi­sion­al post-Maid­an Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment and wields sig­nif­i­cant influ­ence to this day.

High­lights of the Dis­cus­sion:

1.–” . . . . The com­man­der of the Russ­ian Nuclear, Bio­log­i­cal and Chem­i­cal Pro­tec­tion Forces, claimed there was a ‘scheme of inter­ac­tion between US gov­ern­ment agen­cies and Ukrain­ian bio­log­i­cal objects’ and point­ed to the ‘financ­ing of such activ­i­ties by struc­tures close to the cur­rent US lead­er­ship, in par­tic­u­lar the invest­ment fund Rose­mont Seneca, which is head­ed by Hunter Biden.’. . .”
2.–” . . . . Moscow’s claim that Hunter Biden helped finance a US mil­i­tary ‘bioweapons’ research pro­gram in Ukraine is at least par­tial­ly true, accord­ing to new emails obtained exclu­sive­ly by DailyMail.com. . . .”
3.–” . . . . emails from Hunter’s aban­doned lap­top show he helped secure mil­lions of dol­lars of fund­ing for Metabio­ta, a Depart­ment of Defense con­trac­tor spe­cial­iz­ing in research on pan­dem­ic-caus­ing dis­eases that could be used as bioweapons. . . .”
4.–” . . . . Metabio­ta has been an offi­cial part­ner of Eco­Health Alliance since 2014, accord­ing to its web­site. . . .”
5.–” . . . . He also intro­duced Metabio­ta to an alleged­ly cor­rupt Ukrain­ian gas firm, Buris­ma, for a ‘sci­ence project’ involv­ing high biose­cu­ri­ty lev­el labs in Ukraine . . . .”
6.–” . . . . Emails and defense con­tract data reviewed by DailyMail.com sug­gest that Hunter had a promi­nent role in mak­ing sure Metabio­ta was able to con­duct its pathogen research just a few hun­dred miles from the bor­der with Rus­sia. . . .”
7.–” . . . . Metabio­ta has worked in Ukraine for Black & Veatch, a US defense con­trac­tor with deep ties to mil­i­tary intel­li­gence agen­cies, which built secure labs in Ukraine that ana­lyzed killer dis­eases and bioweapons. . . .”
8.–” . . . . Hunter was also par­tic­u­lar­ly involved in Metabio­ta’s oper­a­tions in Ukraine. Hunter’s pitch­es to investors claimed that they not only orga­nized fund­ing for the firm, they also helped it ‘get new cus­tomers’ includ­ing ‘gov­ern­ment agen­cies in case of Metabio­ta’. . . .”
9.–” . . . . For­mer senior CIA offi­cer Sam Fad­dis, who has reviewed emails on Hunter’s lap­top, told DailyMail.com that the offer to help assert Ukraine’s inde­pen­dence was odd for a biotech exec­u­tive [Metabio­ta vice-pres­i­dent Mary Gut­tieri]. ‘It rais­es the ques­tion, what is the real pur­pose of this ven­ture? It’s very odd,’ he said. . . .”
10.–” . . . . Gut­tieri had a lead­ing role in Metabio­ta’s Ukraine oper­a­tions, meet­ing with oth­er com­pa­ny exec­u­tives and US and Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary offi­cials in Octo­ber 2016 to dis­cuss ‘coop­er­a­tion in sur­veil­lance and pre­ven­tion of espe­cial­ly dan­ger­ous infec­tious dis­eases, includ­ing zoonot­ic dis­eases in Ukraine and neigh­bor­ing coun­tries’ accord­ing to a 2016 report by the Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy Cen­ter in Ukraine. . . .”
11.–” . . . . Four days after Gut­tier­i’s April 2014 email, Buris­ma exec­u­tive Vadym Pozharskyi wrote to Hunter reveal­ing that the then-Vice Pres­i­den­t’s son had pitched a ‘sci­ence project’ involv­ing Buris­ma and Metabio­ta in Ukraine. ‘As I under­stand the Metabio­ta was a sub­con­tract to prin­ci­pal con­tac­tor of the DoD B&V [Black & Veatch]. . . .”
12.–” . . . . Fad­dis told DailyMail.com that the attempt to get Metabio­ta to form a part­ner­ship with Buris­ma was a per­plex­ing and wor­ry­ing rev­e­la­tion. ‘His father was the Vice Pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States and in charge of rela­tions with Ukraine. So why was Hunter not only on the board of a sus­pect Ukrain­ian gas firm, but also hooked them up with a com­pa­ny work­ing on bioweapons research?’ Fad­dis said. . . .”
13.–” . . . . ‘The DoD posi­tion is that  . . . . this is pan­dem­ic ear­ly warn­ing research. We don’t know for sure that’s all that was going on. . . .”
14.–” . . . . Gov­ern­ment spend­ing records show the Depart­ment of Defense award­ed an $18.4million con­tract to Metabio­ta between Feb­ru­ary 2014 and Novem­ber 2016, with $307,091 ear­marked for ‘Ukraine research projects’. . . .”
15.–” . . . . The US Defense Threat Reduc­tion Agency (DTRA) also com­mis­sioned B&V to build a Bio­log­i­cal Safe­ty Lev­el 3 lab­o­ra­to­ry in Odessa, Ukraine in 2010, which ‘pro­vid­ed enhanced equip­ment and train­ing to effec­tive­ly, safe­ly and secure­ly iden­ti­fy espe­cial­ly dan­ger­ous pathogens’ accord­ing to a com­pa­ny press release. Such labs are used to ‘study infec­tious agents or tox­ins that may be trans­mit­ted through the air and cause poten­tial­ly lethal infec­tions,’ the US Depart­ment of Health and Human Ser­vices says. . . .”
16.–” . . . . In anoth­er sign of the deep ties between Metabio­ta and the Depart­ment of Defense, Hunter’s RSTP busi­ness part­ner Rob Walk­er said he would ‘have a friend reach out to DoD on the down low’, in order to prove the com­pa­ny’s bona fides to top prospec­tive investors Gold­man Sachs and Mor­gan Stan­ley in Octo­ber 2014. . . .”
17.–” . . . . Metabio­ta also has close ties to the Wuhan Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy (WIV), sus­pect­ed to be the source of the COVID-19 out­break. WIV was a hotspot for con­tro­ver­sial ‘gain of func­tion’ research that can cre­ate super-strength virus­es. Chi­nese sci­en­tists per­formed gain of func­tion research on coro­n­avirus­es at the WIV, work­ing along­side a US-backed orga­ni­za­tion Eco­Health Alliance that has since drawn intense scruti­ny over its coro­n­avirus research since the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic. Researchers from the Wuhan insti­tute, Metabio­ta and Eco­Health Alliance pub­lished a study togeth­er in 2014 on infec­tious dis­eases from bats in Chi­na, which notes that tests were per­formed at the WIV. Shi Zhengli, the WIV Direc­tor of the Cen­ter for Emerg­ing Infec­tious Dis­eases who became dubbed the ‘bat lady’ for her cen­tral role in bat coro­n­avirus research at the lab, was a con­trib­u­tor to the paper. . . .”
