Alex Newman: A War Between Two Villains? 3.5 (2)
by Alex Newman
The people of Ukraine are paying a terrible toll in a war not of their choosing. But just as with the Russian people, there is a huge chasm between them and their rulers.
After lying to America for two years about the Covid pandemic, the establishment segued to a new narrative almost seamlessly: Ukraine’s government leaders are superheroes courageously standing for freedom, Western civilization, and all that is good against beastly Russian savages. But, just as with the Covid narrative, or the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory before it, Americans are not getting the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Instead, they are being spoon-fed lies, propaganda, half-truths, and deception. The end objective: advancing globalism.
That the establishment media do not truly care about innocent victims of war or everyday Ukrainians should be very obvious. In fact, Ukrainians — or any other people for that matter — are disposable to the predatory class. Consider the ghastly genocide of Ukrainians by mass-murdering Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. In what was known as the Holodomor, or the Terror Famine, Soviet communists stole Ukraine’s grain crop and deliberately starved five to 10 million innocent victims in one of the greatest catastrophes in human history. New York Times “journalist” Walter Duranty fed Stalin’s propaganda to Americans by denying the barbarous atrocity, and eventually won a Pulitzer Prize for it.
Despite the nonstop media attention on Ukraine and purported concern for the very real suffering of Ukraine’s embattled population, massive numbers are dying in other conflicts around the world where the establishment press has remained completely silent. In Yemen, for example, an ongoing war involving the Saudi regime has resulted in over 150,000 deaths, with some 85,000 children dying of starvation due to the war, according to Save the Children. And yet, even as Americans glued to their TVs fly Ukrainian flags, the vast majority do not even realize a far more deadly conflict is raging on the Arabian Peninsula.
Aside from alleged humanitarian concerns expressed by the dishonest media, another one of the primary arguments in favor of the escalating U.S. and Western involvement in Ukraine by war propagandists and Western politicians is the integrity of Ukraine’s borders and its national sovereignty. And yet, despite the feigned concern, the same politicians and media propagandists making those arguments are also leading the charge to erase America’s national borders and surrender even more sovereignty to regional and global organizations. Indeed, millions of migrants have flowed into the United States and Europe just in the last few years as politicians have continued to give more power to supranational organizations.
In other words, the primary justifications for outside intervention in Ukraine by the warmongers and their shills in the media are clearly not the real issue. Nobody can fault courageous Ukrainian patriots for fighting to defend their homeland. But the clear winner in the conflict will not be Putin, Ukraine, or the United States. Rather, it will be the cause of globalism and the shift toward what the predator class refers to as the “multipolar world order.” By the time the conflict is over — and it may well expand into a truly global conflagration, potentially involving nukes — it will appear that the U.S. government scored the most spectacular “own goal” in geopolitical history. Countless people will die, but Communist China, European “integration,” and “global governance” will all win big.
Ukraine’s Globalist-leftist President
To begin understanding the enormity of the deception taking place, it helps to examine Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an objective manner. Despite the portrayal of the media-savvy leader by the establishment press and American politicians as some sort of liberty-loving superhero, the reality is far less flattering. Indeed, if Zelensky were in America’s political system, despite claims of being “centrist,” he would be on the far-left fringe of the Democratic Party. He is also deeply corrupt and closely connected to various tentacles of the Deep State waging war on freedom worldwide.
Among other political positions, Zelensky is radically pro-abortion and radically anti-gun. Offering some crucial insight into his political ideology, Zelensky actually wrote publicly on Twitter that would-be Canadian strongman Justin Trudeau — a self-proclaimed admirer of mass-murdering tyrants including Fidel Castro and Xi Jinping — “inspired me to join politics.” In an interview with Axios, Zelensky also openly rejected the notion that the murderous dictatorship ruling communist China represents any sort of geopolitical threat.
The Ukrainian leader’s relatively new political party, known as the “Servant of the People,” is leftist, too, despite trying to portray itself as “libertarian” or in the center. Shortly after being selected to lead the party, chief Oleksandr Kornienko told the world that the party would be moving in a much more leftist direction. “It will be something between liberal and socialist views,” Kornienko declared on Ukrainian television, in a throwback to the nation’s days as a Soviet “socialist” republic.
Under the guise of “libertarianism,” Zelensky has also become quite the LGBT activist, in defiance of his own people’s more traditional values. Indeed, British foreign intelligence chief Richard Moore publicly suggested on Twitter that the war in Ukraine was over “values,” especially homosexuality and gender confusion. “With the tragedy and destruction unfolding so distressingly in Ukraine, we should remember the values and hard won freedoms that distinguish us from Putin, none more than LGBT+ rights,” wrote the MI6 chief.
Zelensky’s personal life and his media career are bizarre, to put it mildly. Video footage of him strutting around in women’s high-heeled shoes and tight leather and a female shirt exposing his midriff has been making the rounds, drawing praise from Western LGBT activists. The Ukrainian leader also infamously appeared on television half naked pretending to play piano with his genitals alongside another man.
Perhaps even more alarming, Zelensky is a hardcore globalist, too, having never met a sovereignty-destroying scheme he did not want to chain his nation to. From the start, he made clear his desire to shackle his nation to the European Union superstate currently devouring the remaining sovereignty of its member governments. The Ukrainian leader is also a major fan of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). And he has been demanding that the UN Security Council behave as a sort of world government.
As is his inspiration Trudeau, Zelensky is also closely connected to the Deep State and its various tentacles — especially the infamous World Economic Forum run by totalitarian-minded Klaus Schwab of “Great Reset” fame. In a January 22, 2020 speech at the WEF, long before the government- and media-backed hysteria around Covid reached a fever pitch, Zelensky celebrated what he described as “the epoch of ‘new normality.’” Zelensky was also placed into power with the backing of powerful Deep State-connected oligarchs. More on them later.
The allegations of corruption have swirled around Zelensky since long before the current war. The so-called Pandora Papers — leaked documents exposing the offshore accounts and business dealings of powerful people around the world — featured Zelensky and several of his top people. Among other concerns, they were found to be using a complex network of offshore companies in Cyprus, Belize, and the British Virgin Islands to purchase luxurious foreign properties from Tuscany to London. Zelensky denies involvement in money laundering, but admitted to using offshore companies, supposedly to avoid political influence in his TV shows.
Deep State Forces Behind Zelensky
Behind the façade of a democratically elected government are numerous “Deep State” forces. This includes shadowy forces within the Ukrainian government pulling strings behind the scenes, including legions of “former” communists and “oligarchs,” as well as deep ties to the international “Deep State” pursuing the “New World Order” agenda. The fingerprints are everywhere.
The current Ukrainian government is intimately tied to the ruling class in the United States. The puppet-style relationship is so blatant that then-Vice President Joe Biden actually bragged at a meeting of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations that he threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. foreign aid from Ukrainian authorities in 2015 if their top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was not fired immediately. Shokin happened to be investigating Burisma Holdings, a shady “energy company” that was paying Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, some $50,000 per month to serve on the board.
“I said, ‘Nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars,’” Biden recounted about his trip to Kiev. “They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president.’ The president said — I said, ‘Call him.’ I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.’ I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours.’ I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a b*tch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
Interestingly, Biden clearly implicated then-President Barack Obama in the conspiracy to remove a prosecutor who was investigating his own corruption. E-mails obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop clearly implicate Joe Biden in the corruption, too, with the former vice president being referred to as “the Big Guy” who was entitled to a 10-percent cut of the corrupt deals being negotiated by his drug-addicted son. With no experience to speak of, Hunter was hired by Burisma weeks after Joe Biden arrived in Ukraine, and pocketed millions of dollars for his supposed “services.”
Of course, Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor, cried foul about the conspiracy against him, even filing a formal complaint asking for a criminal investigation into Biden’s interference in Ukraine’s affairs and abuse of power. Trump raised the concerns publicly, too, and even talked about it with Zelensky sitting next to him in front of the TV cameras. In response to Trump’s concerns about obvious and flagrant Biden corruption in Ukraine, Democrats filed impeachment charges against President Trump.
Biden is hardly alone in the corruption, and Hunter Biden’s Burisma exploits are merely the tip of a massive iceberg of corruption among America’s predatory elites. Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s stepson, Chris Heinz, was even a “business partner” of Hunter Biden until 2015, as the then-vice president’s son was working out myriad “business deals” with Ukrainian oligarchs, Communist Chinese intelligence bigwigs, and more. Right after Trump won the election, Kerry’s State Department announced it was seeking a contractor to “build a network of civic activists throughout Ukraine.”
Ukraine’s Deep State Oligarchs
Perhaps even more damning than the corruption on the surface is a look at the hidden connections behind the scenes. According to Anti-Corruption Action Centre, corrupt Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi owned Burisma and other Ukrainian “gas companies” through offshore entities in the British Virgin Islands and Cyprus. Burisma is the same company that hired Hunter Biden, presumably due to his political connections in Washington, D.C., and beyond rather than his drug addiction and sexual escapades.
The powerful Ukrainian oligarch’s net worth is estimated in the billions, making him one of the wealthiest individuals in Ukraine. Much of his wealth was embezzled from a bank he founded in the 1990s, costing taxpayers billions and helping land him on a U.S. sanctions list. As did other Ukrainian oligarchs, Kolomoyskyi benefited greatly from his ties to the “former” communist ruling class from the Soviet era.
The energy and media magnate, who also has held powerful government posts including being appointed governor of Dnipro (formerly Dnepropetrovsk), has been deeply involved in funding various militia groups in Eastern Ukraine. Among the groups receiving his largesse: the infamous “Azov Battalion,” accused by human-rights groups of including “Neo-Nazi” elements and perpetrating widespread atrocities against civilians. While many of the accusations are undoubtedly propaganda from Putin’s regime, where there is smoke there is almost certainly fire.
Text messages found on Hunter Biden’s laptop show him asking Hallie Biden, his mistress (and his brother’s widow), if she believed that he, Hunter, had “children burned alive in DONETSK.” Another asked if she believed he was responsible for “children killed in [D]onetsk, Ukraine.” These cryptic texts were presumably a reference to the children killed by his financial backer’s various militia groups rampaging across Eastern Ukraine fighting Kremlin-backed separatists.
Despite almost total media silence, Kolomoyskyi was a key player — if not the key player — in the creation of Zelensky and the Ukrainian president’s meteoric rise to power. Using his 1+1 Media Group and its propaganda TV channel 1+1, Kolomoyskyi peddled a show starring Zelensky called “Servant of the People.” Dubbed a “comedy series,” the show featured Zelensky as Ukraine’s president after being elected due in part to a rant against — ironically — Ukraine’s Deep State oligarchs.
It was not just the TV propaganda that Kolomoyskyi used to help install Zelensky as president. The wealthy “businessman” also provided campaign cash, fancy cars, armed security, and much more for Zelensky throughout his real campaign for president. And the oligarch helped bankroll Zelensky’s new party, “Servant of the People,” taken from the TV show. He helped finance the election of dozens of members to the Ukrainian Parliament as he jetted back and forth between Switzerland, the United States, and Israel, too.
In short, the same corrupt oligarch that brought Zelensky to power was in bed with the Biden crime family.
His operations behind the scenes may be shielded from public scrutiny thanks in part to his generous contributions to American Deep State operatives. For instance, Pinchuk has showered more than $10 million on the corrupt Clinton Foundation. Pinchuk has also showered money on self-styled Republicans such as Council on Foreign Relations member and former National Security Advisor John Bolton, one of America’s most vicious warmongers. Bolton collected his largest speaking fees — a cool $115,000 — from Pinchuk. Pinchuk even dumped $150,000 into Trump’s charitable foundation in 2015.
Another prominent Soviet-born bigwig, arms dealer Igor Pasternak, has worked hard to influence American policymakers on Ukraine and other issues. Indeed, in 2013, he hosted a fundraiser for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).
Numerous oligarchs and kleptocrats from former Soviet territories have similarly showered money on Deep State politicians in the United States. Bill Clinton received for a “speech” $500,000 from a Kremlin-linked bank peddling Uranium One shares. Meanwhile, $145 million was pumped into the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One interests as the Russian government was working to acquire the U.S. uranium supplies — with special permission from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Western-globalist Role in 2014 Euromaidan Revolution
None of the recent developments in Ukraine can be fully understood without some background on the February 2014 “coup” that forced out pro-Kremlin President Viktor Yanukovich. Indeed, despite the departure of its previous leader, the current government was brought to power in the violent 2014 “Euromaidan” color revolution, helped along by the Central Intelligence Agency, George Soros, and other power players. The head of the “private CIA” firm Stratfor correctly called it “the most blatant coup in history.” Communist forces in Ukraine helped, too.
That the Obama administration played a critical role in the coup is beyond dispute. In fact, a leaked phone call between then-U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt exposed the two conspiring to bring regime change to the embattled nation. Incredibly, the dynamic Obama duo even talk like kingmakers, describing which political figures are acceptable and which must be pushed aside.
In a 2013 speech to the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation, Nuland, a member of the CFR and married to neoconservative warmonger and Washington Post columnist Robert Kagan, boasted that the U.S. government and perhaps some private interests had “invested” over $5 billion in Ukraine to produce “a good form of government.” No details were provided on who received the money, where it came from, or precisely what it was supposed to accomplish.
Nuland, of course, is still a key player in the ongoing saga, banging the war drums on behalf of the Biden administration. She also claimed that Soviet-built, U.S.-funded biowarfare laboratories in Ukraine (Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca invested in Metabiota, which is involved in the labs) might be used by Russia to stage a false-flag attack.
Another key player was the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a CIA offshoot founded in the early 1980s to advance “democracy promotion” initiatives around the world. Since the Russian invasion, the NED has meticulously scrubbed all records of its funding projects in Ukraine from its searchable “Awarded Grants Search” database. But the archived page captured before being flushed down the memory hole revealed that the NED handed out over $22 million as part of 334 “awards” to interests, organizations, and projects in Ukraine from 2014 to the present.
Aside from the U.S. government, one of the most important players in the saga was billionaire and self-proclaimed Nazi collaborator George Soros, a fervent advocate of a globalist “New World Order” and technocratic governance. Soros, a former director and major financier of the Council on Foreign Relations, poured tens of millions into making the Euromaidan revolution possible.
In fact, the Soros-founded group International Renaissance Foundation (IRF), part of his Open Society Foundations, boasted on its website before the coup of being the single largest donor organization in Ukraine, having handed out over $100 million in the decades leading up to the Euromaidan revolt and the eventual “Revolution of Dignity” that helped install more Soros minions in power. Part of the goal was to promote “integration” with the EU, which only about one third of Ukrainians favored in a 2014 poll commissioned by the U.S. State Department. Many key players in the revolution were funded by Soros money.
Soros, who has been convicted of insider trading and whose early “business” ventures were backed by the powerful Rothschild banking dynasty, was hardly secretive about showering cash on Ukraine. “Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia,” Soros told CNN on May 25, 2014, following the uprisings. “And the foundation has been functioning ever since. And it played a — an important part in events now.” Indeed, Soros’ influence was so great in Ukraine that by 2020, the term “Sorosyata,” or Soros’ children, was used to describe the legions of Soros minions operating throughout the Ukrainian government.
Communist Role in the Revolution
The conflict was often framed as a tug of war over Ukraine between “former” Soviet communists seeking to bind the nation into Putin’s Eurasian Union (see the article on page 18) and Western globalists seeking to shackle the nation to what Mikhail Gorbachev referred to as the New European Soviet (the EU). But there is actually much more to the story than simply a Western globalist coup in Ukraine against then-President Viktor Yanukovych, a corrupt longtime member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union who favored deeper integration with Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union.
While there were some positive developments in the aftermath of the revolt, such as Lenin statues coming down and being replaced with crosses, many leading players in the previous power structure remain in control today, including many dangerous oligarchs and their minions. On February 24, 2014, shortly after the revolution, the far-left New York Times even admitted as much in its report headlined “Ukrainian Protesters See Too Many Familiar Faces in Parliament After Revolution.”
Many of those “familiar faces” were “former” communists and puppets of Ukrainian oligarchs. In a recent edition of his World Affairs Brief newsletter, analyst Joel Skousen explained that when the Ukrainian Parliament ousted Yanukovich, it was “controlled by a large majority of Communists.” “So, it was the Communist majority in Parliament that voted to oust their Communist president — helping prove my point that the Maidan revolution, in fact, was a phony coup like the phony ‘fall’ of the Soviet Union — not a Western driven coup,” he explained.
The purpose, according to Skousen, was to replace Yanukovich with Petro Poroshenko “pretending to be anti-Russian, so he could provoke the uprising of the Russians living in the Donbass.” An openly communist president could not have done that, he added, saying that the only reason the revolution appeared to succeed is that the communist-controlled government ordered security forces to stand down. “Once again, this shows it was a manufactured coup by the Communists to set the stage for more conflict, leading up to the present war,” concluded Skousen. “It worked.”
Indeed, just as KGB defector Anatoly Golitsyn warned was going to happen, the fraudulent “collapse” of the Soviet Union left communists in charge of business, government, media, and more across the region. Unlike the aftermath of World War II, in which Nazis and Imperial Japanese leaders were tried and executed, mass-murdering Soviet bigwigs were allowed to rebrand themselves as “businessmen” and “politicians” while keeping a firm grip on the reins of power.
After the coup succeeded, the IMF and other tax-funded outfits began pumping billions of Western taxpayer dollars into Ukraine. In all, the “aid” packages, paid in the IMF’s proto-global currency known as “Special Drawing Rights,” totaled the equivalent of almost $11 billion in U.S. dollars. While some of that went to prop up Western megabanks or into the pockets of Ukrainian oligarchs, much of the money, supposedly intended to protect Kiev from Putin, was, ironically, promptly transferred to Moscow and the Kremlin under the guise of paying off energy debts, as The New American documented at the time.
Of course, the setup did not begin with the 2014 coup. Incidentally, more than a few analysts have argued that Ukraine’s current quagmire can be directly attributed to U.S. intervention. Consider that in the mid-1990s, shortly after Ukraine gained “independence” from the Soviet Union, the Clinton administration persuaded Ukrainian authorities to surrender their massive arsenal of nuclear weapons to Russia. In exchange, the Clinton administration promised that the United States would protect Ukraine and its borders from foreign attack. Obviously, that was a fraud.
Warmongering and Imploding Propaganda
Deep State globalist neoconservatives in both parties shrieking for war as a supposed response to the latest Russian invasion have actually been trying to foment war for many years. Before the Obama administration even left the White House, the late Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) went over to Ukraine to bang the war drums. “Your fight is our fight,” Graham told Ukrainian soldiers, adding that 2017 would be “the year of offense” and that it was time for Russia to “pay a heavy price.” McCain was also itching to see other people’s children die in war. “I believe you will win,” he told the Ukrainian troops.
Today, the war drums are louder than ever. And yet, much of the push for war is based on easily discredited war propaganda being endlessly peddled by the lying media and politicians across the Western world. Indeed, in the early weeks of the conflict, phony “story” after “story” being used to ratchet up tensions and promote a global conflict was being debunked almost as soon as it was released. But the establishment press, instead of running a correction and apologizing for parroting lies, simply proceeded on to the next fake story, along with the politicians spreading the propaganda. Consider a few examples:
• At the very start of the war, numerous news outlets reported on an alleged massacre of Ukrainian border guards on Snake Island in the Black Sea. According to the reports, a Russian warship had ordered the Ukrainians to lay down their arms and surrender to “avoid bloodshed and unnecessary deaths.” The Ukrainians reportedly replied with an expletive before being gunned down by the ship. Except, it never happened. In reality, even the Ukrainian Navy admitted that the alleged victims were captured alive.
• Another phony story, which went viral across social media, suggested that the former Miss Ukraine had picked up a gun and was heading to the front line to fight Russians. In reality, it was a picture of the beauty queen holding an airsoft gun — basically a realistic-looking toy. “I AM NOT A MILITARY, JUST A HUMAN,” she posted on social media after multiple fake reports claimed she was joining the war. It was one of several war-propaganda pieces glamorizing female fighters in Ukraine as “sexy” and brave.
• By now, almost everybody has heard of the infamous “Ghost of Kiev,” a Ukrainian fighter pilot who was courageously shooting down Russian MiGs. The propaganda was even parroted on social media by members of Congress, including Representative Dan Crenshaw, who promoted it on Twitter alongside the false claims about Snake Island. In actuality, the footage was created with the “Digital Combat Simulator,” as acknowledged by the creator of the video.
• Numerous fraudulent clips have also been used in news reports. For instance, a video of Ukrainian soldiers supposedly kissing their wives and families as they headed to the front lines that went viral online was later exposed as footage from The War of Chimeras, a 2017 movie. Separately, a major Israeli news network showed footage of a crashing spacecraft from the Star Wars movie and claimed it was “live footage” from the Ukraine war. Numerous other examples of fake footage appeared worldwide.
• Six weeks into the conflict, viral video footage that was picked up by major establishment media outlets purported to show a “mobile crematorium” being used by Russian forces to dispose of dead bodies and allegedly cover up evidence of war crimes in the city of Mariupol. In reality, the footage came from an eight-year-old YouTube video by a Russian construction company with an incinerator.
The lies and propaganda have continued relentlessly to this day.
Global War for Globalism
None of this is meant to suggest that there is not real suffering happening in Ukraine — there is. And many of the young men dying in defense of their homeland are heroes. But, clearly, there is an agenda to pump out as much emotion-manipulating war prop-aganda as possible, without even bothering to check the accuracy of it and without bothering to correct the record when it is exposed as fraudulent. The reason for this should be obvious: Somebody, somewhere, wants more war — a lot more war. And this conflict in Ukraine could easily escalate into a global conflagration.
Indeed, the Deep State has long understood the benefit of war in pursuit of its globalist objectives. In the 1962 report for the U.S. State Department titled “A World Effectively Controlled by the United Nations,” Council on Foreign Relations member Lincoln Bloomfield explains the necessary steps to achieving such a world, including mandatory universal membership in supranational institutions.
One of the major outcomes of the war, already, has been the deepening and widening of supranational institutions, including the European Union, NATO, and more. Traditionally neutral nations are now clamoring to join up. And Ukraine, of course, cannot be allowed to be independent, either: It must be forced into either the EU or Putin’s Eurasian Union, which globalists on both sides have long talked about eventually merging together.
As Putin ally and Rockefeller minion Henry “New World Order” Kissinger put it in his 2014 book World Order, “The contemporary quest for world order will require a coherent strategy to establish a concept of order within the various regions and to relate these regional orders to one another.” The EU is a “regional order,” as is Putin’s Eurasian Union. Every nation must be forced to submit.
In his State Department report on achieving world government, Bloomfield goes on to describe the fastest route to achieving the vision: “a grave crisis or war to bring about a sudden transformation in national attitudes sufficient for the purpose.” Indeed, he openly proposes that the conditions most likely to accelerate the process are “a crisis, a war, or a brink-of-war situation so grave or commonly menacing that deeply-rooted attitudes and practices are sufficiently shaken to open the possibility of a revolution in world political arrangements.” World War I, which birthed the League of Nations, and World War II, which resulted in the UN, the IMF, and the EU, both illustrate the point well.
Zelensky and his allies are exploiting the crisis — and the goodwill they have garnered because of it across the Western world — to push for global governance. In fact, in early April, the Ukrainian leader specifically called for a postwar international conference in Kiev to “determine how we can reform the world security system, how do we establish guarantee of recognition of borders and integrity of states and countries, how we will assert the rule of international law.” Among other proposals, he called for granting the UN Security Council even more power, and for the veto held by permanent members to be ignored.
Defenders of the Ukrainian president say he is desperate to protect his country from its far-stronger neighbor — a fair point. But a global government ruled by madmen would be far more dangerous than 100 Putins ever could be, and the evidence suggests creating such a planetary regime is precisely the plan of the shadowy forces behind the scenes.
The Deep State is once again using lies and deception to advance an evil agenda. Americans should resist the temptation to buy into the media narrative and get embroiled in yet another foreign war that will ultimately serve only to supercharge the globalist push to undermine the United States and move toward a draconian New World Order.
