Ukraine just a stepping stone  
Russia Under Attack By Paul Craig Roberts
February 15 2014 "Information Clearing House - In a number of my articles I have explained that the Soviet Union served as a constraint on US power. The Soviet collapse unleashed the neoconservative drive for US world hegemony. Russia under Putin, China, and Iran are the only constraints on the neoconservative agenda.
Russia’s nuclear missiles and military technology make Russia the strongest military obstacle to US hegemony. To neutralize Russia, Washington broke the Reagan-Gorbachev agreements and expanded NATO into former constituent parts of the Soviet Empire and now intends to bring former constituent parts of Russia herself--Georgia and Ukraine--into NATO. Washington withdrew from the treaty that banned anti-ballistic missiles and has established anti-ballistic missile bases on Russia’s frontier. Washington changed its nuclear war doctrine to permit nuclear first strike.
All of this is aimed at degrading Russia’s deterrent, thereby reducing the ability of Russia to resist Washington’s will.
The Russian government (and also the government of Ukraine) foolishly permitted large numbers of US funded NGOs to operate as Washington’s agents under cover of “human rights organizations,” “building democracy,” etc. The “pussy riot” event was an operation designed to put Putin and Russia in a bad light. (The women were useful dupes.) The Western media attacks on the Sochi Olympics are part of the ridiculing and demonizing of Putin and Russia. Washington is determined that Putin and Russia will not be permitted any appearance of success in any area, whether diplomacy, sports, or human rights.
The American media is a Ministry of Propaganda for the government and the corporations and helps Washington paint Russia in bad colors. Stephen F. Cohen accurately describes US media coverage of Russia as a “tsunami of shamefully unprofessional and politically inflammatory articles.”
As a holdover from the Cold War, the US media retains the image of a free press that can be trusted. In truth, there is no free press in America (except for Internet sites). See here for an example: During the later years of the Clinton regime, the US government permitted 5 large conglomerates to concentrate the varied, dispersed and somewhat independent media. The value of these large mega-companies depends on their federal broadcast licenses. Therefore, the media dares not go against the government on any important issue. In addition, the media conglomerates are no longer run by journalists but by corporate advertising executives and former government officials, with an eye not on facts but on advertising revenues and access to government “sources.”
Washington is using the media to prepare the American people for confrontation with Russia and to influence Russians and other peoples in the world against Putin. Washington would love to see a weaker or more pliable Russian leader than Putin.
Many Russians are gullible. Having experienced communist rule and the chaos from collapse, they naively believe that America is the best place, the example for the world, the “white hat” that can be trusted and believed. This idiotic belief, which we see manifested in western Ukraine as the US destabilizes the country in preparation for taking it over, is an important weapon that the US uses to destabilize Russia.
Some Russians make apologies for Washington by explaining the anti-Russian rhetoric as simply a carryover from old stereotypes from the Cold War. “Old stereotypes” is a red herring, a misleading distraction. Washington is gunning for Russia. Russia is under attack, and if Russians do not realize this, they are history.
Many Russians are asleep at the switch, but the Izborsk Club is trying to wake them up. In an article (February 12) in the Russian weekly Zavtra, strategic and military experts warned that the Western use of protests to overturn the decision of the Ukraine government not to join the European Union had produced a situation in which a coup by fascist elements was a possibly. Such a coup would result in a fratricidal war in Ukraine and would constitute a serious “strategic threat to the Russian Federation.”
Continues with the consequences - informationclearinghouse.info/article37652.htm
Added;
NOTE: I have received an email from Moldova, a country bordered by Romania and Ukraine with cities on the Moldova-Ukraine border, that Moldovans are paid 30 euros per day to pose as Ukrainian protesters. I would like to hear from readers who can confirm this report and/or provide a media source in support of this claim.

Human CO2 emissions mean you are all going to BURN. Erm FREEZE. Erm DROWN. Anyone that disagrees is a denier that should be locked up.

Have the zionist controlled politicians readied the paperwork changes from carbon tax to climate change tax? What next? Rain tax? Wind tax?
Insidious propaganda that implies the floods are the fault of humans due to CO2 has been initiated, especially out of call me Dave's mouth. Note the propaganda. Weather is (CO2 driven) climate change related therefore the fault of the people that are suffering.
Note nothing that is happening is unprecedented.

An Exquisite Debunking of Global Cooling Claims.

"…has just arrived from Seth Borenstein of the AP. To wit:

In a blind test, the AP gave temperature data to four independent statisticians and asked them to look for trends, without telling them what the numbers represented. The experts found no true temperature declines over time.

“If you look at the data and sort of cherry-pick a micro-trend within a bigger trend, that technique is particularly suspect,” said John Grego, a professor of statistics at the University of South Carolina.

Yet the idea that things are cooling has been repeated in opinion columns, a BBC news story posted on the Drudge Report and in a new book by the authors of the best-seller “Freakonomics.” Last week, a poll by the Pew Research Center found that only 57 percent of Americans now believe there is strong scientific evidence for global warming, down from 77 percent in 2006.

I fear that the new spate of global cooling claims are having a serious impact, perhaps even an impact detectable in the numbers above–so Borenstein’s is a much needed debunking. It deserves as wide a circulation as possible."

Why Would America Sell Saudi Arabia 15,699 Dangerous Missiles?
Now We Know.
The answer seems to be: Because Canada was getting ready to sell them
[...] The question we asked then was what, precisely, the Royal Saudi Land Force planned to do with all of these missiles. And now we think we know. They're going to load them onto thousands of new light armored vehicles manufactured by another defense contractor entirely: General Dynamics' (NYSE: GD ) Canadian subsidiary, General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada.
On Friday, you see, Canada's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development announced what it called an "historic" deal to sell up to $13 billion worth of light armored vehicles to Saudi Arabia.

Update to post - US and EU Are Paying Ukrainian Rioters
US and EU Are Paying Ukrainian Rioters and Protesters by Paul Craig Roberts
A number of confirmations have come in from readers that Washington is fueling the violent protests in Ukraine with our taxpayer dollars. Washington has no money for food stamps or to prevent home foreclosures, but it has plenty of money with which to subvert Ukraine.
One reader wrote: “My wife, who is of Ukrainian nationality, has weekly contact to her parents and friends in Zhytomyr [NW Ukraine]. According to them, most protesters get an average payment of 200-300 grivna, corresponding to about 15-25 euro. As I additionally heard, one of the most active agencies and ‘payment outlets’ on EU side is the German ‘Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’, being closely connected to the CDU, i.e. Mrs. Merkel’s party.”
As I reported on February 12, “Washington Orchestrated Protests Are Destabilizing Ukraine,” Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, a rabid Russophobe and neoconservative warmonger, told the National Press Club last December that the US has “invested” $5 billion in organizing a network to achieve US goals in Ukraine in order to give “Ukraine the future it deserves.”
Nuland is the Obama regime official who was caught red-handed naming the members of the Ukrainian government Washington intends to impose on the Ukrainian people once the paid protesters have unseated the current elected and independent government. (Source)
What Nuland means by Ukraine’s future under EU overlordship is for Ukraine to be looted like Latvia and Greece and to be used by Washington as a staging ground for US missile bases against Russia.

Re: Update to post - US and EU Are Paying Ukrainian Rioters
Ukraine's 'paid-for' protests played down on Russian TV.

"MOSCOW) - While hundreds of thousands were protesting in Ukraine at the weekend, a steely-voiced Russian newsreader dismissively told viewers that the protests had dwindled to a few hundred people and seemed to have run out of steam.

In the end, Sunday's protest on Kiev's Independence Square, or Maidan, was likely the biggest in Ukraine since the 2004 Orange Revolution and the assessment of the anchor on Russian Channel One television rapidly went viral on the Internet.

The phrase "there are just a few hundred people on the Maidan" became a hit on Twitter as the protest swelled to hundreds of thousands and demonstrators spectacularly toppled a granite Lenin statue.
The almost farcical assessment of the protest was symbolic of Russian state television's clearly conscious move to downplay the scale of the massive Ukrainian protests.
The main news channels are tightly controlled by the Kremlin and broadcast dogmatic Soviet-style scripts with a clear bias against the Ukrainian opposition."
http://www.eubusiness.com/news-eu/russia-ukraine.s1w

Protesters: Ukraine paying for pro-government rallies.
"Meleshko and others say that hundreds of people regularly receive money to stage rallies engineered by Ukrainian officials to provide a counterweight the ongoing anti-government protests calling for Yanukovych's resignation.

"I only do it for money," Meleshko said, adding he doesn't fear retribution.

As Ukraine suffers its most severe political crisis in the 22 years since it gained independence from the former Soviet Union, critics say the payments for pro-government demonstrators prove that Yanukovych lacks popular support.

Why buy into the story posted above?
For me it is logical, the US and the private central banking system headed by the BoE corp'n is deep in the doo doo. Major currencies have collapsed, it is just the frantic printing of more paper currency that never sees circulation, that the UK will see soon that is obscuring the fact. The stock markets, another pillar supporting the global financial ponzi is on the brink, Soros bailed out of the euro a while back and is currently dumping stocks wholesale. The puppeteers (permanent gov't) historically, when confronted with unsolvable liquidity problems turn to war. A major war also fulfills a number of the agenda items on the zionist global dominance menu including depopulation and domination of other countries. 9 11 is coming to a head as too many of the US population are aware of who and how and fear of retribution must be playing a part. The CO2 con is falling apart. A US food crisis, possibly due to artificial droughts caused by chem trails is in the offing. A major war would instantly enable the US regime to implement full martial law. Militarisation by stealth has gone a long way in that direction in the US, slowly being implemented in the UK by zionist lackey Cameron.
After printing to infinity the number of options are limited. Hawks dominate the Obama regime and happily lie to all and sundry with impunity to achieve zionist objectives. Libya's Benghazi incident is perhaps a major illustration of lying with impunity. Obama's statements about Syria's Ghouta atrocity, another.

Aussie capitals already at 2030 heat levels.

"The Australian capital cities of Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra are already experiencing the hot weather conditions predicted for them for 2030, a report on heatwaves says.

The alarming revelation comes from a report released by The Climate Council which wants significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to limit further increases in heatwaves.

Its report, Heatwaves, Hotter, Longer, More Often, shows that over the decade of 2000-2009 the number of days above 35C has already reached the levels previously projected for 2030 in these three capital cities."

Chemtrails - Origins and Implications
by Michael T. Winter
Thanks to the internet reformation, chemtrails are now common knowledge, with only the most obtuse among us in denial. The proof, after all, is found not only in scientific treatises or articles on the web by unknowns such as this writer, but easily discerned by simply looking up into the sky on almost any given day. Google Images will provide hundreds of pictures of chemtrails from all over the world. As a visitor of ‘truther’ sites, you, the reader, no doubt are already well aware of them and require little to no convincing as to the veracity of their existence.
There is a vast and ever growing body of knowledge concerning chemtrails found in the written word, pictures, videos and testimonials; from ordinary citizens to global household names. The common denominator of this growing body of data is that chemtrails are dangerous to all life on earth. This short article will attempt to explain, in relatable terms, how they came about, exactly what they are, why they are being sprayed across our skies, and how they will impact our future as a species.
Continues http://www.activistpost.com/2013/08/chemtrails-origins-and-implications.html
Wind from the across the pond must, within months, bring the US chem trail chemicals into the UK's air, so even were the UK not participating in the activity we would still 'benefit' from the deleterious effects of chemicals added to jet fuel as well as directly sprayed.

The Problem is Civil Obedience
[...] Well, that is our topic, that is our problem: civil obedience. Law is very important. We are talking about obedience to law-law, this marvelous invention of modern times, which we attribute to Western civilization, and which we talk about proudly. The rule of law, oh, how wonderful, all these courses in Western civilization all over the land. Remember those bad old days when people were exploited by feudalism? Everything was terrible in the Middle Ages-but now we have Western civilization, the rule of law. The rule of law has regularized and maximized the injustice that existed before the rule of law, that is what the rule of law has done. Let us start looking at the rule of law realistically, not with that metaphysical complacency with which we always examined it before.
When in all the nations of the world the rule of law is the darling of the leaders and the plague of the people, we ought to begin to recognize this. We have to transcend these national boundaries in our thinking. Nixon and Brezhnev have much more in common with one another than - we have with Nixon. J. Edgar Hoover has far more in common with the head of the Soviet secret police than he has with us. It's the international dedication to law and order that binds the leaders of all countries in a comradely bond. That's why we are always surprised when they get together -- they smile, they shake hands, they smoke cigars, they really like one another no matter what they say. It's like the Republican and Democratic parties, who claim that it's going to make a terrible difference if one or the other wins, yet they are all the same. Basically, it is us against them.

Putin Is Playing a Game of His Own by Walter Russell Mead
The Russian president's razzle-dazzle diplomacy seeks to reverse, delay or hide his country's decline.
The most daring and acrobatic figure in Sochi this week isn't a snowboarder; it is Vladimir Putin, whose death-defying geopolitical gamble is the hottest game in town. With more twists and turns than a bobsled race, more fancy footwork than a figure-skating final and more dips and flips than a mogul run, Russian diplomacy is a dazzling spectacle these days—and despite his considerable handicaps, Mr. Putin is skating rings around his clumsy and clueless opponents in Washington and Brussels.

US missile shield: ‘Russian Bear sleeping with one eye open’
by William Engdahl
Washington’s explanation that its strengthening missile shield in Europe is being built to guard against the Iranian nuclear threat is no more believable than it was 10 years ago.
Despite Russia’s recent efforts to broker a peaceful resolution of the Syrian chemical weapons crisis, as well as its good offices in helping resolve the Iranian nuclear conflict with Washington, the Obama administration is moving ahead with its highly provocative nuclear Ballistic Missile ‘Defense’ (BMD) deployments around Russia. What we are not being told by Western politicians is the fact that this action, far from peaceful, brings the world closer than ever to nuclear war by miscalculation.

Russia boosts Ukraine's Yanukovich with $2 billion fresh credit
By Richard Balmforth Reuters
Russia said on Monday it would give Ukraine a fresh cash injection of $2 billion to support its heavily indebted economy in a boost to the embattled president in Kiev, who has been forced onto the back foot by 12 weeks of unrest.
Viktor Yanukovich is contending with an opposition-led street revolt after he walked away from a trade pact with the European Union in November and opted instead for forging closer economic ties with Russia, Ukraine's former Soviet master.

Israeli ex-officer leads Ukraine protests: Reports
Ukrainian media have reported that a former Israeli army officer is playing a leading role in the anti-government protests in the former Soviet republic.
According to reports, the unnamed Israeli commands a group of 20 Ukrainian militants.
Four other Israelis, who had previously served in the army, were recently reported to have taken part in opposition rallies in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev.
They were born in Ukraine but migrated to Israel and joined its armed forces before returning to the European country for the demonstrations.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian media said that an Israeli tycoon provides financial support to the opposition in Ukraine, adding that Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency is one of the instigators of the unrest in the country.

Here it is sped up by 2x, for those pressed for time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh1aJsr4DcM

Photos and real-time video of the skies over Charlotte being nearly completely covered in a chemical haze on this same day can be found here (from various spots around the city).
These spraying operations can change a clear blue sky to a chalky white sky, from horizon to horizon, in a matter of hours.
