...where real knowledge intersects with real Americans!

Laying Blame For Every Ukrainian And Russian Death In This War
...and for every extra penny you are paying at the gas pump, and for the destabilization of world affairs, and the possible collapse of the dollar, and the risk of nuclear holocaust.

"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all possible evil of evil men."
-Edmund Burke

IN LAST WEEK'S NEWSLETTER, I LED OFF with the backstory of the current events in Ukraine, explaining the provocation that brought Russia to invade Ukraine: In a nutshell,

*a violent US-engineered coup had overthrown the existing Russia-friendly elected regime in early 2014;

*the US had installed hand-picked Russia-hostile American puppets drawn from the neo-Nazis population of the western part of the country in that elected government's place;

*the neo-Nazis had promptly launched a campaign of violent oppression against the eastern Ukrainian population whose electoral will they had undone;

*the conflict between the usurpers in Kiev and the disenfranchised in eastern Ukraine momentarily halted in late 2014 and early 2015 when the Kiev regime-- under pressure from Russia, Germany and France-- agreed to cede autonomy to the the affected regions (Donetsk and Luhansk), but this agreement has been ignored ever since; and

*the neo-Nazi usurpers also began lobbying hard for admission to NATO (an alliance whose chief purpose is the suppression of Russia), raising the prospect of nuclear missiles being placed a minute or two's flight time from Moscow.

Add to that summary that the US had unilaterally abrogated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 2019, and has steadily indicated that NATO membership was soon to be extended to Ukraine.

Also add that the coup-installed government, now featuring the presidency of Volodymyr Zelensky after elections from which the participation of the Ukraine's eastern population was excluded, is in no way a democracy (contrary to the incessant propagandistic assertions of every Western government and media mouthpiece-- all of whom seem to be taking bribes from Ukraine-- but wait, I'm getting ahead of myself...). Tulsi Gabbard summarizes THAT issue nicely here:

Fear and Loathing in Washington
The Biden Administration’s Crimes Against Humanity
by Philip Giraldi

One can frequently disagree with government policies without necessarily regarding them with disgust, but the Joe Biden Administration has turned that corner, first with its senseless promotion of a new Cold War that could turn hot with Russia and, more recently, with its actions undertaken to undermine and punish Afghanistan. The fact that the White House wraps itself in the sanctimonious, self-righteous twaddle that is so much the hallmark of the political left is bad enough, but when the government goes out of its way to harm and even kill people around the world in pursuit of an elusive global dominance it is time for the American people to rise up and say “Stop!”

As a former CIA operations officer, I departed government service in 2002 in part due to the impending invasion of Iraq, which I knew was completely unjustified by the web of largely fabricated information that was flowing out of the Pentagon to justify the attack. In the years since I have been appalled by the Obama era attacks on Syria and Libya as well as by the assassinations and cruise missile strikes carried out under Donald Trump. But all of that was a Sunday in the park compared to the hideous nonsense being pursued by Biden and his crew of reprobates. Trifling with the use of force as part of negotiations intended to go nowhere over Ukraine could well by misstep, false flag or even design escalate into nuclear war ending much of the life on this planet as we know it, and we are now also witnessing the cold, calculated slaughter of possibly hundreds of thousands of civilians just because we have the tools at hand and believe that we can get away with it. What we are seeing unfold right in front of us goes beyond appalling and it is time to demand a change of course on the part of a runaway federal government that is drunk on its own self-assumed unbridled right to exercise total executive authority over vital issues of war and peace.

I am most particularly shocked and dismayed over what the Biden Administration did to Afghanistan on February 11th, which is unambiguously a crime against humanity. On that day the President of the United States Joe Biden, still smarting from the botched departure from Afghanistan and low approval ratings, issued an executive order invoking emergency powers stipulating that the $7 billion in Afghan government money being held and frozen in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York would be retained by the US and divided in two.
