The Truth About The Conflict Over Ukraine

 [Secretary of State, John ] Kerry, wallowing in his arrogance, hubris, and evil, has issued direct threats to Russia. The Russian foreign minister has dismissed Kerry’s threats as “unacceptable.” The stage is set for war.  - Paul Craig Roberts
Before I elaborate on the above a quote with a few salient passages from PCR's brilliant analysis and commentary on the situation in Ukraine, I want to clarify for anyone reading this that the U.S. has funded and militarily supported a political regime in western Ukraine that has ingrained political and military roots with Hitler's Nazi Party.  This is an undisputable fact.  If you decide to fall for the Orwellian rhetoric flooding all of the U.S. news outlets, you are doing so out of complete ignorance of the facts.
Kerry has no answer to the question: “Since when does the United States government genuinely subscribe and defend the concept of sovereignty and territorial integrity?”
In working with Dr. Roberts on several collaborative articles about the U.S. Government's long term and massive intervention in the gold market, I have come to appreciate the deep insight and understanding he has for what is really happening behind "the curtain" in DC.  His ability to communicate and elucidate this reality is nothing short of brilliant.
Washington wants missile bases in Ukraine in order to degrade Russia’s nuclear deterrent, thus reducing Russia’s ability to resist US hegemony. Only three countries stand in the way of Washington’s hegemony over the world, Russia, China, and Iran.
His latest article on the truth about what is happening in Ukraine and why the U.S. has fomented political and civil chaos over there is a must-read for anyone who seeks the truth.
Everyone needs to understand that Washington is lying about Ukraine just as Washington lied about Saddam Hussein and weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, just as Washington lied about Iranian nukes, just as Washington lied about Syrian president Assad using chemical weapons, just as Washington lied about Afghanistan, Libya, NSA spying, torture. What hasn’t Washington lied about?
I encourage everyone to read Dr. Roberts' full article here:  Washington's Hubris

If you are confused about the facts, please educate yourself with this article from geopolitical and economic analyst, William Engdahal:  The [U.S.] Rape of Ukraine

Keep in mind that throughout history, the most definitive sign that a great Empire is in the latter stages of collapse is wantonly corrupted and reckless imperialism - of which we've seen many examples since Bush and Obama took office.


  1. I'm not worried where the price of gold is going. I just hope that we all don't get vaporized by these mindless fucks that are running this insane agenda. Thanks for linking Dr. Roberts article, he is truly a guy who calls it as he see's it.

  2. Why the new shoeshine boy trade is shorting volatility

    All of which poses the much bigger question of what’s leading what? Is it the S&P 500 leading Vix futures or are Vix futures now pushing around the S&P 500?

    The big question, which is still up for debate, is whether this activity and the pop­ularity of the futures market is then recycling into the underlying VIX because now, increasingly, VIX futures and options are becoming even more popular than some of the classic hedging or classic option strategies.

    In a separate note he expands on the point as follows:

    What if everyone, including the end user, would rather collect premiums than buy protection? With more sellers than buyers premiums will not offset the risk and theoretically many of the participants will eventually go bust. This is exactly what is happening in volatility markets today, and the result could be disastrous. The market has figured out that aggressively fading volatility spikes has been a profitable trade during the QEIII regime and now this has become dominant paradigm. Traders are aggressively betting for the VIX to drop after each mini-crisis, this is now the dominant trade, not the other way around. Nobody is a true contrarian for betting on a lower VIX. Today the true contrarian play is crisis alpha.

    The really striking thing, consequently, is that for the first time ever there are more sellers than buyers of volatility ETPs.

  3. It boggles the mind that people can't see the obvious deception being perpetrated by the U.S. I suppose there are various 'red lines' in people's heads - places people are unable to go, for fear of upsetting their personal dogmas. To think that the Russians might be in the right, and that we are the terrorists is just too much for old line patriotic Americans. I think this psychological phenomena needs attention and discussion, because one can point to all kinds of evidence without making any headway with people who suffer from such cognitive dissonance. They don't want to know, so it doesn't matter what evidence you present.

    Anyways, for those trying to convey these truths, it's helpful to understand how people deceive themselves willingly. They are shit scared inside and they use denial to suppress the awareness. This kind of lifestyle behavior can lead to all kinds of illnesses, and unhealthy personality traits.

    It is helpful for me to understand such inner processes so I don't get too mad at these nincompoops!

  4. Putin has reduced America to a dog that barks at clouds.

  5. I only hope that the situation regarding Ukraine does not reach the point where the world is once again on the brink of nuclear annihilation, as was the case during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 (why is it that whenever a Democrat occupies the Oval Office, this kind of insane idiocy threatens to rear its ugly head?). I'm no fan of Putin, but let us hope he displays more sagacity and restraint than our Nobel Peace Prize winner and JFK wannabe currently occupying the Presidency (no, Barry, you are no JFK, and I'm not certain if that's a good thing or a bad thing). Vasili Arkhipov, where are you?

    1. When the military industrial complex & bankers want wars, we get them, period. The POTUS is their puppet regardless of party affiliation and has been for a long time .

    2. Because you and 90% of the population have been led to believe the Democrats are the " Party of the people " when in fact they are nothing but war mongering Nazis wrapped in red, white and blue propaganda. I actually find all this to be entertaining Americans are finally starting to see the light of both these corrupt parties and the sooner the better.

      Keep a sharp eye on Connecticut the pot is boiling over there. Google Connecticut Gun confiscation standoff and you will see whats happening, most are clueless to whats happening.

      Keep your Powder dry.

  6. I love 1/2 of PCR typical analysis - the part where he rips U.S. policy. However, in all the KWN interviews I've ever heard him give, he has nary of word of criticism for the policy/agenda of other nations. Hmmm...

    China is loading up on gold. This is good/smart for them. But what of their bullying foreign policy?
    What of their ridiculously corrupt local govt/real estate market? Their disastrous environmental situation? Their lack of non coal domestic energy sources, relative to the US's diverse energy assets? The fact that they are still extremely dependent on exporting to an economically declining West?

    IMO, every player at this currency poker game can win a hand here and there. Will China win simply because it may have more gold at some point in the game? Despite the multitude of achilles heels it currently has?

    The USA maybe way off track, but this does not by default put other nation's course on track.


  7. The neo-Nazi militants who de facto seized power in a coup are backed/funded by the USA. These are the same militants suspected of committing mass murder a couple days ago – their snipers shooting civilian protestors and military/police alike – and then tried to blame it on the former government.

    Video: (10 min; discussion about snipers starts at 8.15 mark)
    “However the most striking thing of all is the fact which concerns the use of force during the revolution, particularly the snipers who killed both protesters and officers of the riot police. Mr. Paet reveals astonishing information which confirms the rumours that the snipers were employed by the leaders of Maidan [the US backed and funded group].”

    History rhymes. In the 1930’s Hitler’s Nazi Party got financial support from American financiers – like Brown Bros. Harriman (Bush’s grandfather).

    How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power

  8. The Russian Perspective: "There Will Be War In Ukraine"

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/06/2014

    With Ukrainians living in the Crimea region voting to join Russia, the West calling for sanctions (well some of the West), boots still on the ground, and markets apparently of the belief that all is well in the world once again, we thought the Russian perspective on the next steps was useful...


  9. Boots on the ground. major global crisis with Obama forced to add large US troops to help the europeans defend the ukraine. The public will be "shocked" that he declared it. I have warn people that this is coming. well, it's one way to open the job market by sending people off to die in a war. But, if we decide to do this, it's going to be a very long war - not some 10+ years of reckless imperialism. There will only be more spending to keep the war efforts going. We won't be able to just pull out the troops like we do with all theses small wars. The enemy this time can fight back and will go for blood.

  10. Puerto Rico Borrowing $3 Billion on March 11 to Repay Debt

    Russian officials are pushing for the International Monetary Fund to move ahead with planned reforms without the United States, which could mean the loss of the U.S. veto over major decisions at the global lender, sources said.

    Plosser, a noted hawk at the Federal Open Market Committee, expressed concerns over the unwinding of the central bank's asset purchases. The Fed has undergone three stages of quantitative easing (QE) since the finical crash of 2008 in an effort to increase liquidity and stimulate lending.

    "I am very worried about the potential for unintended consequences of all this action. And it's very difficult for us to know because we've never done this before," Plosser said, adding that the curbing of this extra liquidity in the global economy would be "very challenging".

    "Sometimes if you don't have Plan B, you don't have a plan," he warned.

    Central banks across the world have followed the Fed's lead by injecting more cash into the system, with the Bank of England and the Bank of Japan both embarking on QE with benchmark interest rates at record lows.

  11. Ted Rall has an article that adds some good info to the situtation in Ukraine:
    What the US Media Won't Tell You About Ukraine

  12. Report: American Lobbyist Interviewing Ukraine Presidential Canidiates

    Welcome to the theater of the crony controlled absurd.

    From the very well connected Roger Stone:

    According to Wikipedia, Manafort is an American lobbyist and political consultant. A former adviser to the presidential campaigns of George W. Bush, Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald Ford, he is a senior partner in the firm Davis, Manafort and Freedman.

    DMF does not appear to have a web page. According to SourceWatch, DMF is a Registered Foreign Agent for "Federal Republic of Nigeria".

  13. William Engdahal did an hour long podcast on the Corbett Report last week. Well worth the listen. He's very much in tune with what is really going on in the Ukraine as is PCR. I wonder how many people knew the protesters were bussed in and paid to protest. Anyone that relies on the MSM presstitutes for their news certainly wouldn't know that


  14. Red lines , green shoots , black swans...WTF ! When are these supposed leaders going to pull their heads out of their asses and stop envisioning all of the colors created by the gasses up their asses!!!?? How about some straight forward common sense...something we seemed to have lost in Washington years ago !!

  15. Putin can win the war without firing a shot...and he knows it. If he dumped 10% of his FX into the silver market and took delivery, the entire Western system crashes.

  16. Michael JacksonFriday, 07 March, 2014

    Astonishingly, US Secretary of State John Kerry said today: “You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests,” John Kerry said during an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press. “This is an act of aggression that is completely trumped-up in terms of its pretext. It’s really 19th century behaviour in the 21st century.”

    Before that, Kerry barked in a roundtable interview with reporters saying, “I don’t think there should be any doubt whatsoever that any kind of military intervention that would violate the sovereign territorial integrity of Ukraine would be a huge — a grave — mistake”.

    Sound familiar? Kerry echoed the same hollow bluff in the run-up to war with Syria only 6 months ago.

    It might as well be a neoconservative foreign policy war hawk talking, as arrogant and ill-informed as ever. Maybe it is. So a new level of hypocrisy has finally been achieved. Thank you Kerry for clarifying that.

    Perhaps over-excited by all of his tough-talk at Russia now, Kerry has either suffered grave memory loss, or has been in a mental coma for the last 50 years. Is he unable to recall the dozens of incidents of violent US intervention around the globe during his own lifetime? More than likely, he’s doing a little pre-campaigning for his 2016 dummy Presidential run. Either way, it’s an unforgivable statement coming from someone who is meant to be the lead US diplomat.

  17. CONgress voted to give 1 billion to the ukraine!

  18. Ukrainian gold reserves loaded on an unidentified transport aircraft in Kiev's Borispol airport and flown to Uncle Sam's vault

    According to the last night ,Ukrainian gold reserves (40 sealed boxes) were loaded on an unidentified transport aircraft in Kiev’s Borispol airport. The board took off immediately.

    A source in the Ukrainian government confirmed that the transfer of the gold reserves of Ukraine to the United States was ordered by the acting PM Arseny Yatsenyuk.

    So my guess is, that is if indeed this report is true it either means the new ruling elite have stolen the gold bullion or perhaps their is a legitimate fear of the Russians taking possession of this bullion, whatever the facts, it still looks very shady indeed.


    Official narrative: gold bullion is going to USA (maybe to reassure the Germans their gold is in safe hands, after all the despite numerous requests from the German Govt The Feds have not given access for them to even view their Gold Bullion) . Real narrative: probably to Switzerland where it is divided between Yulia Tymoshenko and her cronies.
