The Looting Of Ukraine Has Begun

The Looting Of Ukraine Has Begun

This supporter of the Ukraine joining the EU has received her reward: a 50% cut in her pension.

According to a report in Kommersant-Ukraine, the finance ministry of Washington’s stooges in Kiev who are pretending to be a government has prepared an economic austerity plan that will cut Ukrainian pensions from $160 to $80 so that Western bankers who lent money to Ukraine can be repaid at the expense of Ukraine’s poor. http://www.kommersant.ua/doc/2424454 It is Greece all over again.

Before anything approaching stability and legitimacy has been obtained for the puppet government put in power by the Washington orchestrated coup against the legitimate, elected Ukraine government, the Western looters are already at work. Naive protesters who believed the propaganda that EU membership offered a better life are due to lose half of their pension by April. But this is only the beginning.

The corrupt Western media describes loans as “aid.” However, the 11 billion euros that the EU is offering Kiev is not aid. It is a loan. Moreover, it comes with many strings, including Kiev’s acceptance of an IMF austerity plan.

Remember now, gullible Ukrainians participated in the protests that were used to overthrow their elected government, because they believed the lies told to them by Washington-financed NGOs that once they joined the EU they would have streets paved with gold. Instead they are getting cuts in their pensions and an IMF austerity plan.

The austerity plan will cut social services, funds for education, layoff government workers, devalue the currency, thus raising the prices of imports which include Russian gas, thus electricity, and open Ukrainian assets to takeover by Western corporations.

Ukraine’s agriculture lands will pass into the hands of American agribusiness.

One part of the Washington/EU plan for Ukraine, or that part of Ukraine that doesn’t defect to Russia, has succeeded. What remains of the country will be thoroughly looted by the West.

The other part hasn’t worked as well. Washington’s Ukrainian stooges lost control of the protests to organized and armed ultra-nationalists. These groups, whose roots go back to those who fought for Hitler during World War 2, engaged in words and deeds that sent southern and eastern Ukraine clamoring to be returned to Russia where they resided prior to the 1950s when the Soviet communist party stuck them into Ukraine.

At this time of writing it looks like Crimea has seceded from Ukraine. Washington and its NATO puppets can do nothing but bluster and threaten sanctions. The White House Fool has demonstrated the impotence of the “US sole superpower” by issuing sanctions against unknown persons, whoever they are, responsible for returning Crimea to Russia, where it existed for about 200 years before, according to Solzhenitsyn, a drunk Khrushchev of Ukrainian ethnicity moved southern and eastern Russian provinces into Ukraine. Having observed the events in western Ukraine, those Russian provinces want to go back home where they belong, just as South Ossetia wanted nothing to do with Georgia.

Washington’s stooges in Kiev can do nothing about Crimea except bluster. Under the Russian-Ukraine agreement, Russia is permitted 25,000 troops in Crimea. The US/EU media’s deploring of a “Russian invasion of 16,000 troops” is either total ignorance or complicity in Washington’s lies. Obviously, the US/EU media is corrupt. Only a fool would rely on their reports. Any media that would believe anything Washington says after George W. Bush and Dick Cheney sent Secretary of State Colin Powell to the UN to peddle the regime’s lies about “Iraqi weapons of mass destruction,” which the weapons inspectors had told the White House did not exist, is clearly a collection of bought-and-paid for whores.

In the former Russian provinces of eastern Ukraine, Putin’s low-key approach to the strategic threat that Washington has brought to Russia has given Washington a chance to hold on to a major industrial complex that serves the Russian economy and military. The people themselves in eastern Ukraine are in the streets demanding separation from the unelected government that Washington’s coup has imposed in Kiev. Washington, realizing that its incompetence has lost Crimea, had its Kiev stooges appoint Ukrainian oligarchs, against whom the Maiden protests were partly directed, to governing positions in eastern Ukraine cities. These oligarchs have their own private militias in addition to the police and any Ukrainian military units that are still functioning. The leaders of the protesting Russians are being arrested and disappeared. Washington and its EU puppets, who proclaim their support for self-determination, are only for self-determination when it can be orchestrated in their favor. Therefore, Washington is busy at work suppressing self-determination in eastern Ukraine.

This is a dilemma for Putin. His low-key approach has allowed Washington to seize the initiative in eastern Ukraine. The oligarchs Taruta and Kolomoyskiy have been put in power in Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk, and are carrying out arrests of Russians and committing unspeakable crimes, but you will never hear of it from the US presstitutes. Washington’s strategy is to arrest and deep-six the leaders of the secessionists so that there no authorities to request Putin’s intervention.

If Putin has drones, he has the option of taking out Taruta and Kolomoyskiy. If Putin lets Washington retain the Russian provinces of eastern Ukraine, he will have demonstrated a weakness that Washington will exploit. Washington will exploit the weakness to the point that Washington forces Putin to war.

The war will be nuclear.

Obama And Putin Are Trapped In A Macho Game Of “Chicken” And The Whole World Could Pay The Price

Barack Obama Vladimir Putin
The U.S. government and the Russian government have both been forced into positions where neither one of them can afford to back down.  If Barack Obama backs down, he will be greatly criticized for being "weak" and for having been beaten by Vladimir Putin once again.  If Putin backs down, he will be greatly criticized for being "weak" and for abandoning the Russians that live in Crimea.  In essence, Obama and Putin find themselves trapped in a macho game of "chicken" and critics on both sides stand ready to pounce on the one who backs down.  But this is not just an innocent game of "chicken" from a fifties movie.  This is the real deal, and if nobody backs down the entire world will pay the price.
Leaving aside who is to blame for a moment, it is really frightening to think that we may be approaching the tensest moment in U.S.-Russian relations since the Cuban missile crisis.
There has been much talk about Obama's "red lines", but the truth is that Crimea (and in particular the naval base at Sevastopol) is a "red line" for Russia.
There is nothing that Obama could ever do that could force the Russians out of Sevastopol.  They will never, ever willingly give up that naval base.
So what in the world does Obama expect to accomplish by imposing sanctions on Russia?  By treaty, Russia is allowed to have 25,000 troops in Crimea and Russia has not sent troops into the rest of Ukraine.
Economic sanctions are not going to cause Putin to back down.  Instead, they will just cause the Russians to retaliate.
In a letter that he sent to Congress this week, Obama claimed that the Ukrainian crisis is an "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States."
Language like that is going to make it even more difficult for Obama to back down.
On Thursday, Obama announced "visa restrictions" on "those Russians and Ukrainians responsible for the Russian move into Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula", and a House panel passed a "symbolic resolution" that condemned Russia for its "occupation" of Crimea.
But those moves are fairly meaningless.  Leaders from both political parties are now pushing for very strong economic sanctions against Russia, and there does not appear to be many members of Congress that intend to stand in the way.
If the U.S. does hit Russia with harsh economic sanctions, what is going to happen?
Is Russia going to back down?
No way.
So let's just play out the coming moves like a game of chess for a moment...
-The U.S. slaps economic sanctions on Russia.
-Russia seizes the assets of U.S. companies that are doing business in Russia.
-The U.S. seizes Russian assets.
-The Russians refuse to pay their debts to U.S. banks.
-The U.S. government hits Russia with even stronger sanctions.
-Russia starts dumping U.S. debt and encourages other nations to start doing the same.
-The U.S. gets Europe to also hit Russia with economic sanctions.
-Russia cuts off the natural gas to Europe.  As I noted the other day, Russia supplies more than half the natural gas to a bunch of countries in Europe.
-The United States moves troops into western Ukraine.
-Russia starts selling oil for gold or for Russian rubles and encourages other nations to start abandoning the U.S. dollar in international trade.
Of course the order of many of these moves could ultimately turn out to be different, but I think that you can see the nightmare that this game of "chicken" could turn out to be.
And what would be the final result?
Nothing would be resolved, but the global economy would greatlysuffer.
What makes all of this even more complicated is that about 60 percent of the people living in Crimea are actually ethnic Russians, and a majority of the population appears to want to leave Ukraine and be reunited with Russia.  The following comes from a Reuters article...
Crimea's parliament voted to join Russia on Thursday and its Moscow-backed government set a referendum on the decision in 10 days' time in a dramatic escalation of the crisis over the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula.
The sudden acceleration of moves to bring Crimea, which has an ethnic Russian majority and has effectively been seized by Russian forces, formally under Moscow's rule came as European Union leaders held an emergency summit groping for ways to pressure Russia to back down and accept mediation.
The Obama administration is calling the upcoming referendum "illegal" and says that it will not respect the will of the Crimean people no matter how the vote turns out.
But the people of Crimea are very serious about this, and of course they never would be pushing for reunification with Russia if they had not gotten approval from Putin...
The decision, which diplomats said could not have been made without Putin's approval, raised the stakes in the most serious east-west confrontation since the end of the Cold War.
The vice premier of Crimea, home to Russia's Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, said a referendum on the status would take place on March 16. All state property would be "nationalized", the Russian ruble adopted and Ukrainian troops treated as occupiers and forced to surrender or leave, he said.
There is no way that the U.S. government is going to accept Crimea becoming part of Russia, and there is no way in the world that Russia is going to back down at this point.  Just consider what geopolitical expert Ian Bremmer of the Eurasia Group recently had to say...
"Russia is not going to back down from Crimea, irrespective of U.S. pressure. Which means if the U.S. wants to find any resolution here, they’re going to have to find a way to come to terms with that. Now that the Crimean parliament has voted — clearly with Russian assent — we’ll have a referendum … and then further militarization of the peninsula by the Russians."
What we need is someone with extraordinary diplomatic skills to defuse this situation before it spirals out of control.
Unfortunately, we have Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett and John Kerry running things.
What a mess.
So why is Ukraine such a big deal anyway?
In a recent article, Peter Farmer explained succinctly why Ukraine is so incredibly important...
The Ukraine is strategically-important for a number of reasons. It sits astride enormous petroleum and natural gas deposits found in the Black Sea region. The nation is also home to an extensive network of liquid natural gas pipelines which crisscross it; control the Ukraine and you control its pipelines - and thus the flow of energy into the hugely-lucrative European market. Western energy firms such as Exxon-Mobil, BP-Amoco and Chevron are locked in competition with the Russian energy giant Gazprom - for control/exploitation of as-yet-undeveloped petroleum deposits not only in the Ukraine, but in neighboring Poland and Romania. Fracking technologies and other new extraction methods have only added urgency to the competition. Income from fossil fuels development is the lifeblood of the new Russian economy. Threats to the regional hegemony of Gazprom are likely to be treated by Putin and Russia with the utmost urgency and seriousness.
The Crimean Peninsula is also home to the Black Sea fleet of the Russian navy, which leases its base at Sevastopol from the Ukrainian government. Since the Black Sea - via the Dardanelles - provides the only warm-water base with access to the Mediterranean Sea - it is of enormous importance to Russia. Its loss would be a crippling blow to the Russian fleet.
Finally, the Ukraine - once known as the "bread basket of Europe" - is home to arguably the finest temperate agricultural region in the world. Its topsoil is widely-acknowledged by agronomists to be among the world's best. Control the Ukraine and you control the grainery of Europe - and can exert tremendous leverage upon worldwide grain agricultural commodities prices.
If the U.S. insists on playing a game of brinksmanship over Ukraine, the consequences could be disastrous.
For one thing, as I mentioned above, the status of the petrodollar could be greatly threatened.  The following is how Jim Willie is analyzing the situation...
If the Kremlin demands Gold bullion (or even Russian Rubles) for oil payments, then the interventions to subvert the Ruble currency by the London and Wall Street houses will backfire and blow up in the bankster faces. Expect any surplus Rubles would be converted quickly to Gold bullion. If the Chinese demand that they are permitted to pay for oil shipments in Yuan currency, then the entire Petro-Dollar platform will be subjected to sledge hammers and wrecking balls. The new Petro-Yuan defacto standard will have been launched from the Shanghai outpost. If the Saudis curry favor to the Russians and Chinese by accepting non-USDollar payments for oil shipments, then the Petro-Dollar is dead and buried.
In addition, if Russia starts dumping U.S. debt and gets other nations (such as China) to start doing the same, that could create a nightmare scenario for the U.S. financial system very rapidly.
So let us hope and pray that cooler heads prevail.
In my recent article entitled "The Top 12 Signs That The U.S. Economy Is Heading Toward Another Recession", I discussed how the U.S. economy appears to be hurtling toward another major downturn.
And on Thursday, we learned that office supplies giant Staples has just announced that it is going to close 225 stores.
Even without this major international crisis, the U.S. economy would still be deeply troubled.
But if the United States and Russia do declare "economic war" on each other, all hell could start breaking loose.
Unfortunately, there does not appear to be much hope of anyone backing down at this point.  In an editorial for the Washington Post, Henry Kissinger stated that it "is incompatible with the rules of the existing world order for Russia to annex Crimea."
Very interesting word choice.
So this is the situation we are facing...
-The U.S. government seems absolutely determined to "punish" Russia until it leaves Crimea.
-Russia is never going to leave Crimea, and has promised to "respond" harshly to any sanctions.
Most Americans are not paying much attention to what is going on in Ukraine, but this is a very, very big deal.
In the end, it could potentially affect the lives of virtually every man, woman and child on the planet.

Russian soldiers training in Canada given 24 hours to leave the country

Nine Russian soldiers who were participating in military exercises in Canada have been expelled from the country, as Ottawa continues to denounce Russia’s military intervention in Crimea, CTV News has learned.
A government source confirmed that the soldiers were informed Thursday afternoon that they had 24 hours to leave Canada.

Six of the soldiers were in Saint-Jean, Que., where they were learning English and French. Another two soldiers were participating in a training program at 5 CDSB Gagetown, and the ninth soldier was teaching Canadian soldiers Russian in Gatineau, Que.

The move comes days after Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that all planned bilateral activities between the Canadian Armed Forces and the military of the Russian Federation are suspended, including exercises such as NORAD's Exercise Vigilant Eagle.

On Thursday, Harper said the government would not recognize the results of a referendum in Crimea on whether to join Russia because the region is “currently under illegal military occupation.”

Putin will go as far as the West allows him to

DUBLIN - Despite their personal differences, Ukrainian opposition leaders Yulia Tymoshenko and Vitali Klitschko put up a united front at a meeting of centre-right EU leaders on Thursday (6 March), warning the West against allowing Russia to invade their country.

"Putin will go as far as the Western world will allow him to," Tymoshenko said in a speech at the Dublin congress of the European People's Party.

"If we allow Russia to hold a referendum under the barrel of Kalashnikovs on the annexation of Crimea, we will lose stability throughout the whole world," she said.

Still in a frail state after more than two years in prison, Tymoshenko confirmed reports she will fly to Germany for medical treatment.

But other EPP leaders, notably Germany's Angela Merkel, were concerned about giving Tymoshenko too much of a platform. The former prime minister is a polarising figure in Ukraine, after controversial gas deals with Russia's Vladimir Putin.

Klitschko and Tymoshenko appeared together for press photos but chose to hold their press conferences separately.

Of the two, Klitschko seemed more inclined to co-operate.

"I have been working together with Tymoshenko's party against the regime and I hope to do so in the future," Klitschko said.

He said that as a former boxer he "knows better than anyone: no fight, no win".

Ukraine will "defend itself", he said, but not seek war with Russia.

As for Tymoshenko, she mentioned no other opposition party and defended her relations with Putin during her time as prime minister, but said she had no contact with him since being in jail.

"I had to work with Putin when I was prime minister. I tried to build a relationship with Russia so Ukraine is not just a 'little brother'," she said during her press conference.

As for future co-operation with Russia, Tymoshenko doubted there can be direct bilateral relations as long as they are "unequal" and Russia is in violation of international agreements regarding Ukraine's territorial integrity.

"If Russia is allowed to annex Crimea, the whole of Europe will be on the losers' side. I will not accept a compromise at Ukraine's expense, and that includes its territorial integrity," she said.

According to Russian media reports, Tymoshenko allegedly struck a deal with Putin so he can keep Crimea, while she gets his endorsement for becoming prime minister after the May elections.

Tymoshenko responded to this by saying: "Don't watch Russian TV, don't read Russian press, it's full of anti-Ukrainian propaganda."

On recent remarks by Estonian foreign minister Urmas Paet (made in a leaked telephone call) that there was a "stronger understanding" among Maidan protesters that someone in the current interim government, and not ousted President Yanukovych, had hired snipers to shoot at civilians, Tymoshenko said she "fully supports an independent inquiry".

"Experts are already on the ground," she added.

Obama and Putin Playing Out World War III Script Written by Banksters

putin and obama

With the present Ukrainian crisis, the Russians are looking like a foe that could pose a real military threat to the United States. The forces of war are lining up in Ukraine. However, there is not much that is spontaneous about this event. Both sides are playing out a prepared script written by the banksters.

The Russian Threat

Some people mistakenly believe that Putin is going to single handedly defeat the bankers and save America from the New World Order. Nothing could be further from the truth. Putin, Obama, Ukrainian government, Crimea and NATO are right on cue as each party plays out its script in preplanned scenario.
Ask yourself a question. Why would the Russians be posturing to fight the the US over, first Syria, and then Ukraine, while at the same time be building up their troops on US soil? Didn’t Secretary of Defense Hagel announce on March 5th that the US was breaking off military cooperation with the Russians over the events in Ukraine? Then why would Hagel, on behalf of Obama, announce that we were reducing our military to pre-1940 levels in the midst of a crisis which could turn into World War III? Are we looking at gross incompetency, or are we looking at abject treason by deliberately compromising the military strength of the US? The following paragraphs make it clear that we are looking at treason emanating from the Obama administration. And to those of you who admire the new “Christian” on the block, President Putin, you may get to know him very well in the near future.

The Order of Events That Will Follow

The answer to this question of what is coming is quite simple. World War III will be preceded by a series of false flag events which will be followed by the brutal implementation of martial law. The martial law will be enforced by foreign troops, the Russians and the Chinese. Below is a brief synopsis of the proof that I have previously offered, complete with references in previous articles.

Martial Law/Concentration Camp Document

The most telling set of events which indicate that Americans will soon be under martial law consist of the NDAA and Executive Order 13603 which does away with all due process and literally provides for the enslavement of American citizens. If this legislation is new to you, Google these documents and be prepared to be shocked. However, these aforementioned documents are not the most damning.
A short time ago, the awake people in this country were shocked with the revelation of new martial law documentation,  FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF). which detailed that massive creation of FEMA camps which would soon house untold millions of American citizens
What lies below is more proof that it is will be foreign troops killing American citizens in these camps, not American soldiers who cannot be counted on to violate their oath to the Constitution.
Appendix NForeign Confinement Officer Training Program
Training U.S. Trainers
N-43. Soldiers and Marines who are assigned training missions receive a course of preparation to deal with the specific requirements of developing the target HN confinement officers (i.e. foreign detention officers). The course should emphasize the cultural background of the HN, introduce its language (to include specific confinement-related terms and phrases) and provide insights into cultural tips for developing a good rapport with HN personnel.

The following paragraph makes is abundantly clear what role the Russians will play in the new detention camps. They are going to be in complete control of these camps.

Training Methods

N-48. Training programs are designed to prepare HN personnel to eventually train themselves. Indigenous trainers are the best trainers and should be used to the maximum extent possible.
The day that the detainees hear the engines start up and the American military vacates the concentration camps, that will be the day that all American detainees better “get right with God”.
Can it be anymore clear, or is this administration simply kidding around?

Fort Carson, Colorado

Let’s not forget that Russian troops stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado, practiced retaking the Denver International Airport from domestic terrorists in a widely publicized activity. Who would these domestic terrorists be? They would be none other than members of the American military who are not going along with the plan. This also explains why Obama has felt compelled to fire 260+ senior military command officers because he cannot get the bulk of our military leadership to turn on the American people.

Obama Compromises America’s Defenses

The F-22 coastal surveillance flights over the Alaska/Russian border, were suspended by this administration because of “oxygen uptake” problems for the pilots which was causing them to blackout. That may, or may not be true, however, what is true is that nothing replaced these surveillance flights. The F-16′s could have easily performed the same task. This increased the opening of the backdoor to Alaska  for a Russian military incursion should the present crisis in Ukraine turn violent.
People such as Amanda Mitchell repeatedly sent me accounts of Russian soldiers in Ketchikan, AK. I also received over two dozen emails from Juneau and some reports from the northern regions of the state in which Russians were training with their heavy equipment.
I have received repeated email communications from a former law enforcement official who does business on a local base in which he delivers product, near Victorville, CA., in which he has repeatedly witnessed Russians training with their own tanks on American base.
As I indicated in earlier paragraphs, there are Russians on the base at Fort Carson, Colorado and they have been repeatedly photographed.
I have also detailed how Obama gave Putin seven oil rich Islands that formerly belonged to Alaska. Some of these same Islands are ideal locations from which to launch an invasion of Alaska. I believe that thisis precisely what will happen if NATO military opposes Putin in Ukraine.
Don’t forget about the good work of Sherrie Wilcox who has both uncovered hundreds of thousands of FEMA coffins outside of Atlanta as well as photographed Russian soldiers training inside of DHS vehicles in Western Kentucky.
There have also been many of the good people in Gatlinburg, TN., such as Dr. Susan Helman who have detailed the presence of Russian soldiers in their town. The presence and purpose of using the nearby Smokey Mountains  as a staging area for Russian commandos has been confirmed by ex-Green Beret and military intelligence officer, John Moore. According to Moore, it is likely that these Russian commandos are being trained to take down a city’s infrastructure which could be accomplished with just two six man teams. And we now know that there are literally dozens of Gatlinburg’s across America.

The Voice of Russia

As I got too close to the truth, the Russian media even tried to bring me into their sphere of control on the radio show, the state-sponsored Voice of Russia and tried to discredit me.
Shakespeare once warned us to not believe people who are protesting too loudly. Last fall, after I began receiving some notoriety for reporting on martial law legislation involving the United States (i.e. NDAA, Executive Order 13603, etc.), I was contacted by Russian propagandists at the Voice of Russia in which they wanted to interview me on the topic. Not coincidentally, I was publicly stating that the Russians were going to be at the vanguard of a martial law contingency which would brutally subjugate the American people against any and all that would resist the takedown of this country and the installation of the New World Order.
The Russians interviewed me on these issues and they proceeded to misrepresent and minimize my professional credentials. And despite the fact that during the interview, I documented all claims with fact-based references, the show synopsis referred to me as an “extremist:” and again misrepresented my professional credentials. By the way, the order to interview me, must have come down from Russian High Command. They contacted me at 10pm, local time, to interview with them at 5 AM the next morning .
The interview was intent on discrediting any intention on the part of this administration to implement martial law. And the Russians were intent on discrediting this notion because they are going to be leading the implementation of martial law. Shakespeare was right about protesting too loudly.
Don’t forget about the microphone incident in which Obama told Medvedev to tell Putin that he will “have much more flexibility after he is re-elected”.
Of course, there is the FEMA Bilateral agreement with the Russian military and FEMA to bring 15,000 Russian soldiers to the US to participate in disaster training. I would indeed call a FEMA camp “disaster training”.
Don’t forget, that we have invited the Russians to participate in the upcoming RIMPAC war games which were designed to prepare to fight against Russian military strategies. And the Russians were allowed to observe our GridEX II drills in which showed them how to take down the power grid. This is unmitigated treason.


We would have to be dumber than a box of rocks to believe that Putin is championing an effort to overthrow the banksters. On one hand, he is preparing to fight banker hijacked government of the United States over Ukraine and on the other hand, his troops are training to enforce martial law in the United States. It does not make sense unless one considers the following chain of planned events:
1. False Flag attack designed to place the American people in vulnerable position.
2. The implementation of martial law designed to eliminate all opposition to the installation of a NWO government with complete autocratic rule. Any opposition to the coming World War III will be eliminated.
3. World War III will commence according to script and will devastate this planet so that the bankers can create a new order out of chaos.
Putin and Obama are playing out a script prepared by the banksters.
All of the above claims are documented in the reference section below.

Russian Parliament Welcomes Crimea for Russia

MOSCOW, March 7 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s upper house of parliament said Friday it would welcome the addition of Crimea to the country's territory if residents there choose to secede from Ukraine in a referendum scheduled next week.

Officials in the Crimean parliament – the Supreme Council – and the city council of Sevastopol voted Thursday for the majority ethnic Russian region to become part of Russia, amid increasing fears that Moscow was seeking to annex the Ukrainian territory. The votes by Crimean authorities, however, are not legally binding and have little immediate effect.

“We [the Supreme Council] have made a decision on entry into the Russian Federation. Now the ball is in your court, you must decide the fate of Crimea – I hope, forever,” said Vladimir Konstantinov, chairman of Crimea’s Supreme Council, at a meeting of the region's officials with the speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament Sergei Naryshkin.

The speaker of Russia’s upper house of parliament, Valentina Matviyenko, said Russia would support the addition of Crimea to its territory.

“If the people of Crimea make the decision in the referendum to join Russia, we, as the upper house, will of course support such a decision,” Matviyenko said Friday.

The public referendum on the issue, scheduled for March 16, has been dismissed as a “farce” and “a crime against the state” by the acting president of Ukraine, Oleksandr Turchynov, who said Thursday that the Ukrainian parliament would move to dissolve the Crimean one.

The referendum will offer voters two choices: to either approve the secession or for the primarily Russian-speaking peninsula to remain an autonomous republic within Ukraine.

Votes by Crimean authorities on secession Thursday, though legally toothless, outraged the Ukrainian government and the West, escalating an ongoing political crisis in the region after thousands of troops – apparently under Russian command, but lacking official insignia – took control of Ukrainian military bases across Crimea in the past week.

US President Barack Obama denounced the move as illegal under the Ukrainian constitution and international law, and ordered financial and visa sanctions for those responsible for the vote, which he said threatened the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

US allies in the European Union swiftly followed with a further round of visa sanctions and asset-freezing, threatening further measures if the crisis could not be defused.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a phone call with Obama on Thursday night that Ukraine’s current government, brought to power by a revolution that ousted President Viktor Yanukovych last month, was illegitimate.

He said that “Russia cannot ignore [Crimea’s] appeals for help in this regard,” but that it would act in full compliance with international law.

Connecticut’s Gun Ban Is Worse Than Hitler’s Gun Ban

gun control works
Recently, 100,000 state residents who went to bed as law-abiding citizens and woke up a felon facing prison time. Connecticut Governor Malloy continues to pressure the 100,000 Connecticut residents who have refused to register their guns, to do so, or face forced gun confiscation at their homes. Why is Malloy still Governor? Why aren’t these people recalling this sorry excuse for a governor who obviously holds the Second Amendment in such disdain? And before you tell me that the Governor has given up on the notion of gun confiscation, you would mistaken. The slight pull back by the Governor is in response to the fact that one third of the impacted residents are law enforcement personnel. Once this is legislation away, gun confiscation will be back on the table. It is looking more and more like Connecticut and other select states are beta testing gun confiscation so the DHS can establish the metrics of resistance and then plan accordingly.

There Is a Coming Train Wreck

In reality, it’s just a matter of time until there is blood in the streets over a rising number of unconstitutional gun grabs, whether it’s in Connecticut or any other state. And when bloodshed starts, martial law will follow.
Second Amendment rights are not just under attack in Connecticut, they are being attacked all across this country. Last year, the Colorado Senate passed Senate Bill 197 which was intended to ban those who have been accused of domestic violence. Please notice, the law says “accused”, not convicted.
Take the case of David Schmecker as he has had his guns confiscated. Schmecker is an honorably discharged Navy veteran with no criminal past. He had his gun permit revoked and his guns forcefully confiscated by police because he politely refused to submit to a psychological evaluation as ordered by an interim physician for a pain medication.
In Hawaii, Senate Bill 219 bans guns as does recent Indiana legislation which has done the same despite the 5-4 Supreme Court ruling which upheld the Second Amendment.
Is someone going to flip a switch and we will see home gun confiscation across the country? It appears that the forces are aligning for just this purpose.

Given the recent 5-4 decision upholding the Second Amendment, Obama is only one Supreme Court Justice away from a declaration of national gun confiscation. We are on the precipice of a totalitarian crackdown.
Frighteningly, American gun control legislation is imitating Hitler’s Nazi Germany gun control legislation. Consider the key provisions of the Nazi Weapons Act of 1938 and compare it with the Connecticut gun ban. The parallels of both the provisions and the legal language are eerily similar and in some cases the Connecticut ban is worse that anything Hitler implemented. .

The Nazi Weapons Act of 1938

1. Classified guns for sporting purposes.
2. All Germans desiring to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and submit to a background check.
3. The law assumed that non-Nazi German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazi’s from the gun control law.
4. The Nazi’s assumed unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not, be owned by private persons.
5. The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by governmental bureaucrats.
6. Citizens under 18 years of age could not buy firearms and ammunition.

Connecticut’s Gun Ban

1. Does not even use the term “sporting purpose” as a standard for private gun ownership. The U.S. Court of Appeals [in Heller II] thought “it clear enough in the record that semi-automatic rifles and magazines holding more than ten rounds are indeed in ‘common use.’”
However, the court could not “be certain whether these weapons are commonly used or are useful specifically for self-defense or hunting and therefore whether the prohibitions of certain semi-automatic rifles and magazines … meaningfully affect the right to keep and bear arms.” In other words, the government gets to decide and there is no firm standard so the government gets to make up the rules as they go along. This is much more strict than anything the Nazis passed because it represents incremental gun confiscation.
2. Exempted government agencies from the controls which applied to law-abiding citizens. In other words, the government is maintain a distinct advantage over the people in terms of firearms. The concept of self-defense is not protected under this unconstitutional law.
3. The law assumes that all gun owners are enemies of the state. And then only a very narrow range of guns can be purchased, but they must be registered.
4. Authorized vaguely defined state officials to decide what firearms could or could not be owned by private persons. Besides, the police and other members of law enforcement are exempt from the law, so it wasn’t a complete ban:
In addition, LCMs [limited capacity magazines] may be possessed, purchased, or imported by “members or employees of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, police departments, the Department of Correction, the Division of Criminal Justice, the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection or the military or naval forces of this state or of the United States for use in the discharge of their official duties or when off duty. Just like Hitler, the law and the courts created special categories of citizens that can possess the banned guns. No matter how one justifies this and no matter how corrupt a judge may be, this is a 14th Amendment violation because the law does not treat all people the same.
5. As with Hitler, the types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by governmental bureaucrats.
6. Age retractions of 21 years, not 18 as provided for by Hitler, were applied to anyone who wished to purchase firearms and ammunition.

History Speaks Will America Listen?

Who cares if the government confiscates guns and/or ban guns,  the government will protect us won’t they?
The lesson of the 20th Century genocides can no longer be dismissed as something that could never happen in America. The logic of personal self-defense should be hitting home as our country plunges deeper into the depths of fascist totalitarian control (e.g., Patriot Acts 1&2, the NDAA, Executive Order 13603, the multitude of spying bills which allow for the spying on American citizens who are engaged in ordinary activities).
America may be on the verge of committing “National Suicide by Gun Control”. All totalitarian governments begin their invasion into civil liberties with the promise of safety from whoever plays the convenient role of the “boogey man” of the day. In Nazi Germany, the original boogey man were the communists and then the specter of boogey men kept expanding until anyone who was an enemy of the State needed to be controlled. The totalitarian pleas of “Let us protect you from yourself” ring loudly and clearly through the halls of Congress and in the Oval Office and in an increasing number of mayors and governors’ offices.

Gun control and gun confiscation has preceded every instance of genocide in the 20th century.

Twentieth century governments committed “democide” (i.e. genocide committed by government) to the tune of murdering 262 million of its own citizens according to a University of Hawaii study. Just to give perspective on this incredible rate of murder by government, “this democide murdered 6 times more people than died in combat in” all the of the wars fought in the 20th century.  
How quickly we forget the lessons of history. If we ever allow government to subvert the second amendment, we very well could be witnessing a prelude to an American genocide.
There is nothing as dangerous to a totalitarian regime as an educated and well-armed populace. No Child Left Behind and Common Core are taking care of the well-educated variable. While Connecticut is leading the way in stripping Americans of their right defend themselves from a tyrannical government as called for by the Founding Fathers and the Second Amendment, these gun confiscation laws are taking care of the well-armed variable.
Before we strip away our last line of defense from an increasingly totalitarian government, by acquiescing to the United Nations and American advocates for gun control, perhaps we should examine a partial list of  the end game resulting from past gun control efforts:
1. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves against their ethnic-cleansing government, were arrested and exterminated.
2. In 1929, the former Soviet Union established gun control as a means of controlling the “more difficult” of their citizens. From 1929 to the death of Stalin, 20 million Soviets met an untimely end at the hand of various governmental agencies as they were arrested and exterminated.
3. After the rise of the Nazi’s, Germany established their version of gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, political dissidents and others, who were unable to defend themselves against the “Nazis”, were arrested and exterminated.
4. After Communist China established gun control in 1935, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves against their fascist leaders, were arrested and exterminated.
5. Closer to home, Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayans, unable to defend themselves against their ruthless dictatorship, were arrested and exterminated.
6. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves from their dictatorial government, were arrested and exterminated.
7. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million of the “educated” people, unable to defend themselves against their fascist government, were arrested and exterminated.
The historical voices from the millions of corpses speak loudly and clearly to those Americans who are advocating unreasonable, unconstitutional and for tighter gun control legislation.
Thomas Jefferson was very clear in his writings regarding the right to bear arms. Jefferson knew that the preservation of the Republic ultimately rested upon a well-armed citizenry in a “the government must fear the people approach”. Jefferson felt it was absolutely necessary for American citizens to be able to protect themselves. The protection that Jefferson spoke of was not from our obvious enemies of the day (France and Britain), but from our own government. Jefferson made this point quite clear when he admonished future generations of Americans to fulfill their duty to overthrow a government that failed to serve the needs of the majority of its citizens.
Private ownership of guns is the necessary component needed to fulfill the Jeffersonian mandate for national self-defense. Yet, increasingly and reminiscent of Nazi Germany, the United States government is incrementally chipping away at private citizens right to own a gun. Why? FBI statistics clearly show that 90% of the guns used in the commission of a crime are stolen! Does the government really believe that criminals, both American citizens and illegal aliens, as well as terrorists, are suddenly going to perform their civic duty and immediately register and/or turn in their guns? How is America better-served if the only ones who don’t have access to guns are the law-abiding citizens? So, one must ask who are the gun control laws designed to protect and why?


Please recall the order of events that I am projecting on our march to World War III which falls into line with the crisis in Ukraine.
1. False Flag Event
2. Martial Law and gun confiscation
3. World War III
The gun control legislation is setting the stage for a more effective martial law which will follow an undetermined false flag event. These gun control laws are a good barometer on how far along are the globalist plans to subjugate this country. We are entering into very dangerous ground.
In addition to the gun control issue, Americans need to seriously consider the gun control legislation sweeping the country. Americans also need to prayerfully and cautiously consider the recently leaked military manuals which are the organizations plans of the government, who will use foreign troops to imprison American citizens in what patriots refer to as FEMA camps. The document is entitled and can be referenced at FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF). This document, alone, is why Americans must resist these unconstitutional gun control laws.
