How we got here:

There will be no coup on behalf of that Treasonous, fascist piece of shit.

Now I’ve seen everything…

Mitch McConnell is pro-impeachment.

When even that diseased turtle turns on you, you’re fucked. Donald may not attend the inauguration because he’ll be sitting in a cell.

House Democrats Briefed On 3 Terrifying Plots To Overthrow Government

Make no mistake, this was Tweeted about by Trump himself on January 1st, which Twitter may have removed from sight, but it is findable.

Donald really is pulling a Hitler move. If the Capitol building burned and Congress couldn’t perform its duties, he’s got “emergency measures” lined up and ready to go to seize power indefinitely.

Why zero national guard?

How could the police be so unprepared after almost a week to prepare?

What about the video of them letting in the rioters and posing for selfies with the rioters?

More later, when more is known.

Recently Pardoned Flynn Shares Call for Trump to Declare Martial Law and Make Military Oversee New Election

These people are completely psychotic. They are ranting about “ANTIFA” and “Black Lives Matter” as if that had anything to do with anything–this is a fascist scapegoating ploy that’s so obvious it’s ridiculous on its face. They are in some kind of red baiting cult from out of The Purge movies.

What Whitney Webb is describing makes the Gore v. Bush debacle look like kids’ stuff.

America remains in dire trouble.

Documentary Released Today Sheds New Light on Ukrainegate

This is one of the most important films you can see, with the crucial missing history that has been censored from western corporate media. Ignorance is not okay.

My consistent view going back to the early 1980s has been that the public’s willful ignorance is not okay, and it is indeed the problem. Ignorant people are easily marshaled into groups, their identities stripped away, their thoughts supplanted by propaganda, and talking points inserted into their mouths by others. It is a severe and widespread problem, perhaps intractable. I meet a dozen per day on social media, and I can say with some authority that they don’t care for sources or facts.

Ukraine on Fire is not a perfect documentary. Better footnotes and citations might have helped to deflect the inevitable criticisms. Slick graphics help the flow visually, and they do keep the pace quick. Oliver Stone was deeply involved and on camera talking directly to participants relating to the 2014 Maidan coup.

I have also written about these events since they occurred documenting each stage for historical accuracy.

One of the main points for western audiences to come to terms with is that Viktor Yanukovych was not the usual “brutal dictator” from the standard script of US regime change color revolutions. He wasn’t nearly brutal enough in going after violent, organized coup leaders right in the center of Kiev. There were no raids on their headquarters, no arrests, and certainly no assassinations of those foreign-backed neo-fascist insurgent leaders. Few “revolutions” elsewhere could have succeeded along those lines without risking severe reprisals by armed authorities.

The film shows how sophisticated the coup plotters were, what challenges they faced, and how they used violence to create martyrs and exploit the media channels, including no fewer than three new television stations that instantly popped up as the protests began in November of 2013.

The filmmakers present the history of Ukraine, its western provinces collaborating openly with Hitler and turning war criminals like Stepan Bandera into national heroes. It shows the history of color revolutions, their ties to US NGOS, that aren’t all that “N” and are pretty much undeserving of the name. The National Endowment for Democracy (sic) opposes democracy around the world wherever the democratic leader denies some US corporate interests. USAID is another alleged “NGO” undeserving of the “N,” which has taken on foreign missions that the CIA used to handle. This color revolution blueprint is consistent, repeats itself, and it relies on a deception that foreign populations are rising up, when it only requires a tiny minority of a given population to make that appearance. The peaceful protests begin, and then the trained violent rioters move in, after some smiling images of solidarity have been produced for American news consumers. It’s happened in Bolivia and Venezuela recently as well. Color revolutions are the American empire’s game plan around the world–to take over with proxies, stooges, lapdogs, puppets.

Nationalism is exploited by extremists on the right, domestically and around the world in targeted nations. The US likes to partner with, train, fund and empower these violent extremists in order to get footholds for US corporations. It’s the main job of far too large a portion of the US government today.

 

Doomsday-Clock-2016

 

These destabilizations and US belligerence have escalated a new Cold War. Russia is on notice and has modernized its nuclear arsenal. China is on notice, with US support for Hong Kong rioters as well as the “breakaway province” of Taiwan, and its incursions into the South China Sea. These provocations are a source of eternal hostility, an arms race, and hair-trigger alerts.

The US and its allies, particularly NATO, continue to stir up as much trouble as they can, while their own populations know next to nothing about what is going on with their tax dollars. That’s a problem.

Americans suddenly have a lot to say about Ukraine with the new Impeachment inquiry. Try asking a few of them if they know about any of this, or if they can even locate Ukraine on a map?

Did you know that Donald Trump had the State Department, USAID, NED, and the CIA fund and train Neo-Nazi, fascist militias to overthrow the government of Ukraine? These riot mobs, primarily Svoboda and Right Sector, stormed the capital, firebombed and shot the police, and destroyed democracy inside Ukraine. When the legitimately elected president was forced out by the rioters, the population which had supported him in the east seceded from the country, tearing the entire nation into pieces and sparking a civil war. The Ukraine civil war has cost the lives of over 13,000 Ukrainians. There is so much blood on Donald Trump’s hands.

Oh, wait a minute. That was Barack Obama. Change that paragraph please.

Since 2014, it’s been glaringly obvious to astute (and honest) observers that the Administration of Barack Obama and Joe Biden supported the most vicious street mobs in Europe, people who considered themselves proud fascists. Western media routinely censored this part of the story. Obama’s Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, made deals with their leaders and was caught on an open phone line handpicking the next unelected leader of Ukraine, someone they could sell to the US public: “Yats is the guy.”

Representative Dennis Kucinich expressed outrage on Bill O’Reilly’s TV show that the Obama Administration had aided this bloody, illegitimate coup. The head of the CIA-linked STRATFOR called Ukraine “the most blatant coup in history.”

America’s proxy terrorists burned Kiev, seized power violently, and through the power of the purse strings, Obama’s Administration installed friendly-faced fascists, who immediately set about attacking their countrymen in the east, with a policy of mass murder and indiscriminate bombings. Eastern provinces of Crimea and Donetsk, which notably had supported the ousted president, held referenda. The people there voted overwhelmingly to secede from the illegitimate, unelected, foreign-sponsored coup regime in Kiev.

The above is most certainly not the reason cited this week for Impeachment hearings.

Aiding and abetting fascist militias to violently siege a foreign capital is not considered a crime in Washington DC, at all. Conversely, it is business as usual, as Bolivians and Venezuelans can attest to.

Woody Allen directed a film entitled “Crimes and Misdemeanors.” That pretty much sums up the DC circus unfolding in Congress. Everything above is completely true, and yet Barack Obama is heralded as someone in the neighborhood of saints and superheroes. To the belligerent American empire, Obama was a star quarterback. Let’s not even delve into Barack’s support for Al Qaeda in Syria, and another half-million dead there, or we’ll be here all day.

Donald Trump made a phone call. In his phone call, he is said to have bullied the President of Ukraine a little. He may have even delayed some weapons transfers to that country, which was engaged in a proxy war with nuclear-armed Russia and its separatist allies in the east of Ukraine.

That’s a crime? A real crime? In light of over thirteen thousand slaughtered and an illegal coup in broad daylight? Trump’s telephone call is the real crime?

Other Presidents haven’t bullied other client-state puppet leaders, ever?

And why exactly is the President of the United States of America required to send lethal weapons to foreign fascists at all? Has anyone located that section of the Constitution?
