Like two bulls preparing to square off over their love interests in the herd, the U.S. government war crowd (and other G8 members) and the Russian government are increasingly stomping the ground and braying with more bellicosity.
After making threats that Russia and Vladimir Putin would suffer “costs” and there would be a “huge price to pay” if Russia annexed Crimea, Putin scoffed. He then proceeded to move toward drawing Crimea further into Russia’s sphere, a move backed by more than 90 percent of all Crimeans.
The first “costs” turned out to be sanctions against a list of Russian lawmakers and oligarchs who are in fact likely Putin rivals rather than Putin allies, as I wrote last week. One of those “sanctioned” was Yelena Mizulina, who had little to do with Crimea but authored legislation banning homosexual propaganda to Russian minors. Who knew the President Barack Obama homosexual-pushing agenda would extend to Russia?
Putin responded by first falling out of his chair laughing. Then he returned the favor and sanctioned a few U.S. lawmakers and bureaucrats. The sanctions gave psychopaths like Weeper John Boehner and Sen(ile) John McCain — both on the list for Russian sanctions — an opportunity to thump their chests as if they’ve done something to advance the American cause.
Obama promised more sanctions and “economic isolation” for Russia. Putin promised to just exchange the U.S. for other trading partners. This move would be disastrous for the U.S. economy. And it would be equally disastrous for Eastern Europe if Russia cuts off the natural gas it supplies.
Putin’s belligerence and Obama’s response — perceived as weak by the neocon war crowd infesting the Washington, D.C., cesspool — is driving the war hawks insane. They seem to be itching to goad Putin into a shooting war.
Weekly Standard Columnist Bill Kristol — chief propagandist for the U.S. war machine — bemoaned that Americans are war-weary. He believes they just need to be challenged to awaken them from their stupor.
“A war-weary public can be awakened and rallied. Indeed, events are right now doing the awakening. All that’s needed is the rallying. And the turnaround can be fast,” Kristol wrote. His neocon propaganda rag is doing its dead-level best to lead that turnaround.
But consider that the U.S. has been at war since 1990. There is a generation of young adults who have never known their Nation at peace. Don’t the American people have a right to be weary of war — especially wars ginned up by Kristol and his neocon brothers on behalf of the banksters and globalists?
It seems Ron Paul may be winning after all. In the past two efforts to drag America into another conflict, the majority of Americans said “No!”
Also consider that as the Cold War ended, the U.S. told Russia it would not move NATO into Eastern Europe if Russia would move its troops out. But by 1996, President Bill Clinton was urging NATO to extend full membership to former Warsaw Pact nations in 1999. Every President since then has used NATO to further surround Russia. It is just part of the neocon/globalist effort to encircle Russia and effect regime change throughout the Mideast and North Africa that has been ongoing since the early 1990s.
Consider as well what is behind the war. The U.S. and the EU were trying to drag Ukraine into the EU. Ukraine’s economy was/is faltering. The International Monetary Fund was unhappy with Russia-friendly elected Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who was rejecting IMF demands to raise taxes and devalue the currency. Newly installed U.S. puppet Arseniy “Yats” Yatsenyuk is a central banker willing to do the IMF’s bidding. He was selected by the U.S., which invested $5 billion to throw Yanukovych from office.
Neocons and the war-loving U.S. media have demonized Putin, claiming he “took” Crimea and plans to take more Russian territory. The people of Crimea, who are mostly Russian, voted overwhelmingly to join Russia. Meanwhile, the U.S. was sacking Ukraine’s gold reserves.
Governments since the Roman Empire have created enemies to use to instill fear in the population so that the people are manipulated into giving more police power over to the government. Politicians always go along with this Machiavellian deception.
There is blatant oppression of the U.S. people now and the U.S. economic system is on the verge of unraveling, so more fear and more war is needed to manipulate the people against their own freedom. Oh, you know this is true.
Note from the Editor: Round two of the financial meltdown is predicted to reach global proportions, already adversely affecting Greece, Spain and most of Europe. It appears less severe in the states because our banks are printing useless fiat currency. I’ve arranged for readers to get two free books—Surviving a Global financial Crisis and Currency Collapse, plus How to Survive the Collapse of Civilization—to help you prepare for the worst. Click here for your free copies.
The Ukraine situation is a bankster-orchestrated crisis with the short game more money printing and the end game global governance. The U.S. is promising more money to prop up Ukraine’s economy, but the U.S. can’t even afford to pay its own bills. This will further open the money printing spigots.
We are seeing more war propaganda, but we aren’t told the fact that both the U.S. and Russia will use paper money to pay for the war. Paper money benefits the moneyed elites at the expense of the people.
There are two ways that government creates credit. The first is bank credit. This credit expands as long as people “borrow money.” When a debt overload develops, bank credit contracts as the people stop borrowing.
The second way is when the government “pays” credit into circulation through huge social programs or starts a war. When the public mood reverses from euphoria and optimism to despair and depression, bank credit collapses.
As long as the volume of credit is expanding, government and its political system reigns. But an involuntary contraction of credit brings people back to reality after bank credit strips them of their property through debt. The public becomes more hostile toward all government, politicians, authority and taxes.
This is why governments always try to extend the credit machine, even going so far as creating wars. They really do succeed for a time as they create larger and larger imbalances that always end in a credit collapse, such is now brewing.
There would be no wars without government/banker credit; but even if there were, they would be over quickly. Nobody would pay for wars with gold and silver, not even the government.
Americans may not completely understand all this in their heads. But they know it in their hearts.
