Whilst zionist sock puppets blow hot air and take advantage at home...  
Crimeans overwhelmingly vote for joining Russia
Crimean population has overwhelmingly voted to break away from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation with a turnout of more than 80 percent.
The Election Commission in Crimea announced late on Sunday that 93 percent of participants voted for joining Russia in a referendum that created controversy in Europe and beyond.
According to authorities, some 40 percent of Crimea’s ethnic Tatar population also took part in the referendum and the voting process went on smoothly amid tight security.
The United States and the European Union have rejected the referendum, which they claim is against Ukraine's constitution and international law.
However, Valeriy Ryazanski, head of Russian upper house of parliament's observers in Crimea said the results were successful and legitimate and could be considered confirmed.

Jihadists flock to Yemen warns analysts
Now that Saudi Arabia has disengaged itself from Jihadists in Syria over fear that such a policy will in the longer term actually generate more instability across the region, analysts have come out of the woodwork, warning that Syria’s veteran jihadists could now be flocking to Yemen.
If the United States of America and the Saudi government thought prudent to back moderate militias in Syria by offering military aid and training, it appears now that such policies could have played directly into the hands of al-Qaeda, as the group found in Syria rebel fighters a precious recruitment pool. Hardened by months of ground operations, well-trained and very capable Jihadist are said to have been enrolled by the terror group in order to feed its global terror war machine.

Syria: A "Stalemate" When One Side Is Advancing?
[...] How can this be a "stalemate" when one side is advancing on three important fronts?
[...] Saudi Arabia seems to be trying to desperately clean house in the run up to the visit by Obama, going so far as to demand that all Saudi citizens fighting in Syria return home and "turn themselves in". This, though, is nothing more than cover for the fact that desertions from the militants seem to be increasing as more and more fighters become disgusted with the politics and infighting.

Will the [US Pilgrims'] CFR's sock puppet Obama back off or is WWIII necessary because of the total SNAFU state of rack and ruin the US and its economy is in? The situation seems to have provided Obama with the opportunity to become the facade dictator of the US police state.
Obama Declares a National Emergency: Crimea Self-Determination Constitutes a “Threat To US National Security”
Or is it that "While gutting State funds,Obama  secretly spent $BILLIONS for Ukraine neo-nazi coup takeover" (via A. Smith @360CNN) may provide just cause for Obama to be lynched by patriots, a red line crossed and his puppeteers willing to let the dogs have his bones for failing - again? Whatever, he is calling for a state of emergency ahead of the intended time IMO using excuses as real as Cameoron's justification for destroying Libya and assassinating Gaddafi.
In reality it is the actions of the Pilgrims' Bilderberg directed CIA and NATO, various neocon AIPAC a holes in the Pentagon and like McCain sanctioned by Obama on behalf of the Pilgrims' Soros controlled CFR that constitutes the real threat, and the Fed's never ending devaluation of the dollar and theft of gold. [Is the UK's other half really still in the corporate BoE?].

Is the Western world FINALLY waking up?
If central gov'ts controlled by luciferian freemason zionists and their royal mates with their economies controlled by equally corrupt zionist central banks are allowed to continue to hold sway over a country's destiny then no. It is all down to Russia standing up to the thugs, so to speak.

West using Crimea to hide real intentions
Any competent military or Intel professional would tell you that the West knew that the result of it's coup in Kiev would be for Russians in the Eastern part of the country to seek protection from Russia. Why? Because they do not want to fall under the control of the new axis of evil.
Why would they allow US missiles and military bases staged on their territory, 'legalized' Right Sector terrorists incorporated into Ukraine's secret service and prosecutor's offices, and becoming perpetual serfs to the EU and IMF as their curtain of exploitation descends upon them?
"The West wants their money, and they are planning to get it. Their plan was to load Ukraine up with loans, watching it bankrupt itself via a combination of mismanagement and looting which is all to common in the region. The West is just as corrupt, the difference being there was more to steal from their people...or I should say, there was until lately. They have been looking East for greener pastures to prop up their failing economies. The foreign bogeyman is the age old diversion for discontent at home."
We are getting reports of the Kiev coup government agreeing on the quick EU/IMF loan at lightening speed with no public input whatsoever. Those who have taken over know that Ukraine is going to be divided between the haves, and the have nots. And they plan to be among the haves, as literally occupation troops inside their own country.

Putin's popularity next to plunge like Russian economy.
Russian government admits economy in crisis as Ukraine weighs.

"MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's government acknowledged for the first time on Monday that the economy was in crisis, undermining earlier attempts by officials to suggest albeit weakening growth could weather sanctions over Ukraine.

Moscow markets wait to see the full scale of western measures over the seizure of Ukraine's Crimea and support of its referendum to join Russia, after losing billions of dollars in recent weeks in state and corporate money.

For weeks, Russian officials have said the confrontation between Moscow and the West over Ukraine that threatens economic sanctions and asset freezes would "weigh on the economy".

Although not speaking directly about the impact from the conflict, Deputy Economy Minister Sergei Belyakov said on Monday the economy was in trouble.

"The economic situation shows clear signs of a crisis," Belyakov told a local business conference.

European officials have said they are determined to hit Russia for its actions in Crimea, imposing sanctions including travel bans and asset freezes on those responsible. The United States is expected to take similar steps on Monday."

Re: Putin's popularity next to plunge like Russian economy.
Russia isn't Iran, however it was obvious that sanctions against Iran did nothing to dent Ahmadinejad's authority and harmed only the little people, a crime against humanity and illegal.
Russia will simply find new markets and stop sending its gas to the West, China and India for example, or quadruple the price of it. The Russian market will be lost forever.
Obama can't open his mouth without lying. I wonder what the real reasons for the arm waving are.
Interesting that an arrest warrant has been issued for Soros, he and his wicked witches were behind funding with tax dollars and inflaming the faux Arab Spring with Ukraine named as a target at the time.

From the chaos in Iraq, the commercial interest side of the zionist NWO plundered freely. Afghanistan, the drugs trade prospered amazingly after the suppression of the Taliban, still massive rare earth deposits to be plundered. Libya, the plan went awry but now seems back on track with a division of the country forecast. Egypt for the zionist Israeli expansion plan looks to be on course with US friendly army in power. Ukraine? I think it served its purpose hence Obama backing off fast but NAsTO is miffed. I don't think Putin willingly went along as his plan stops the encirclement of Russia.

The Eurasian Chessboard: Brzezinski Mapped Out “The Battle for Ukraine” in 1997
By Chris Ernesto March 16, 2014
It’s all about maintaining the US position as the world’s sole superpower
Why would the United States run the risk of siding with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazis in Ukraine?
One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.”
“However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.”
The former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be “unapologetic” in perpetuating “America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still.”
Brzezinski delved into the importance of little known Ukraine by explaining in his 1997 book, “Geopolitical pivots are the states whose importance is derived not from their power and motivation but rather from their sensitive location… which in some cases gives them a special role in either defining access to important areas or in denying resources to a significant player.”
“Ukraine, Azerbaijan, South Korea, Turkey and Iran play the role of critically important geopolitical pivots,” he wrote in The Grand Chessboard, a book viewed by many as a blueprint for US world domination.
Brzezinski wrote that Eurasia is “the chessboard on which the struggle for global primacy continues to be played,” and that “it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also of challenging America.”
Understanding Brzezinski’s long-term view of Ukraine makes it easier to comprehend why the US has given $5 billion to Ukraine since 1991, and why today it is hyper-concerned about having Ukraine remain in its sphere of influence.
It may also help explain why in the past year the US and many of its media outlets have feverishly demonized Vladimir Putin.
By prominently highlighting the mistreatment of activist group Pussy Riot, incessantly condemning Russia’s regressive position on gay rights, and excessively focusing on substandard accommodations at the Sochi Olympic Games, the Obama administration has cleverly distracted the public from delving into US support of the ultra-nationalist, neo-Nazi factions of the Ukrainian opposition, and has made it palatable for Americans to accept the US narrative on Ukraine.

[Maintaining maximum mendacity] McCain:
'Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country'
Sen. John McCain returned from a trip to Ukraine on Sunday, calling for "a fundamental re-assessment" of the United States' relationship with Russian Vladimir Putin.
“No more reset buttons," McCain told Candy Crowley on CNN's "State of the Union." “No more reset buttons, no more ‘Tell Vladimir I’ll be more flexible.’ Treat him for what he is. That does not mean re-ignition of the Cold War. But it does mean treating him in the way that we understand an individual who believes in restoring the old Russian empire.”
McCain, who has been critical of the Obama administration's response to the crisis in Crimea, said the White House should target Russia's oil exports.
"Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country,” McCain said. “It’s kleptocracy, it’s corruption. It’s a nation that’s really only dependent upon oil and gas for their economy. And so economic sanctions are important. Get some military assistance to Ukrainians, at least so they can defend themselves. Resume the missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic. Look at Moldova and Georgia, both of whom are occupied by Russian troops as we speak, a path toward membership in NATO.”

European Union Joins Obama, Sanctions 21 Russian, Crimean Officials
Just a few short hours after Obama issued an executive order declaring sanctions against a select group of Russians and Ukrainians, here comes the EU, whose unelected leaders have just slammed not only those Crimeans and pro-Russian Ukrainians who dared to organize and execute the Crimean referendum vote in which the population overwhelmingly voted to support becoming part of Russia, but in keeping with the US, also launched a salvo making it quite clear that neither Russian politicians nor various Russian military commanders are welcome to park their assets, or buy houses in the EU as of this moment. Needless to say, one person, Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel, is already dreading what the Russian response to this latest escalation will be, and grudgingly stated that "RUSSIA FORCED EU'S HAND WITH CRIMEA BALLOT." Perhaps, and perhaps Russia will be "forced" to if not freeze German gas exports as a result of this diplomatic move, then just happen to pull an Amazon Prime, and hike prices by a few dozen percent. We will find out shortly.

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back — Paul Craig Roberts
Paul Craig Roberts
Washington’s plan to seize Ukraine and to evict Russia from its Black Sea naval base has come amiss. But as Lenin said, “two steps forward, one step back.”
Do you remember all the tough talk coming from John Kerry, the White House Fool, Hilary Clinton, and the lickspittle Merkel about the harsh sanctions that would “badly damage” the Russian economy unless Russia prevented the referendum vote in Crimea? Well, it was all bullshit, more hot air from the White House sock puppet and the lickspittle German chancellor who is a disgrace to the German nation. As the Russians kept telling John Kerry, sanctions on Russia would destroy Europe and do little damage to Russia.
I wish the Russians had kept this to themselves. I was looking forward to the Washington morons destroying NATO by closing down the European economy.
Of course, after pretending that they were macho tough guys, something that Washington’s presstitute media could hype as sanctions had to be imposed, so Washington came up with sanctions, not on Russia, but on eleven individuals: the deposed Ukrainian president, an advisor to the deposed president, 2 Crimean officials, and 7 Russians.
The choice of the officials is an utter mystery. The seven Russians are a Putin aid, a Putin adviser, four members of the Russian parliament (Duma) and a deputy prime minister. What any of these people had to do with the referendum in Crimea, no one knows.

Who shut the West's eyes on Ukraine’s far right?
When CNN’ Christiane Amanpour was countering the arguments of the veteran expert on Russia and the Soviet Union, Stephen Cohen, she used the classical arguments of all appeasers and Holocaust deniers. Judge for yourself. Here is when Stephen Cohen had to say: "There’s a small but resolute right-wing nationalist movement in Ukraine."
Its quasi fascist, and its dictating terms to this parliament in Kiev – which is not legitimate in law, international or constitutional." Having heard this, Christiane Amanpour retorted by saying that one should not call ALL Ukrainians neo-Nazis or fascists. In this way she echoed many similar claims from the West’s political leaders: from Barak Obama to the EU’s chief diplomat Catherine Ashton who allowed herself to be photographed with some of the most racist leaders of Ukraine’s ultra right.
So, are they all fascists? Indeed, they are not. Even in Adolph Hitler’s Germany between 1933 and 1945 people with Nazi views might not even make up a majority. The Nazis never won absolute majority at the relatively fair elections held in Germany in 1920s and the beginning of the 30s. But certainly it does not take off the responsibility from the German people for what happened to their own country and other countries of Europe in that period.

Strangely enough, in ITALY there is a poll as important as in Crimea; however, mass media has decided or been instructed to totally ignore it.
Four million Venetians will go to the polls and vote on whether Veneto, one of Italy’s three wealthiest regions, should secede from Italy and become an “independent and sovereign federal republic.”
They also vote on leaving the EU with their new republic, leaving NATO, leaving the EURO.
This must scare the EU leaders so much that they decided not to have it covered in the news, to not cause ideas in other regions as well.
So far only very little coverage in the media:

Ukraine: Wet Noodle Sanctions And Pressure For Constitutional Reform
As documented yesterday the "leaked" Russian non-paper which demanded constitutional reform in the Ukraine and more autonomy for its regions was at least partially accepted by Secretary of State Kerry:
"In a phone call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, their second since unsuccessful face-to-face talks on Friday in London, Kerry urged Russia "to support efforts by Ukrainians across the spectrum to address power sharing and decentralization through a constitutional reform process that is broadly inclusive and protects the rights of minorities," the State Department said."
That Kerry "urged Russia" is just a silly diversion. The idea of such changes in the Ukrainian constitution clearly came from the Russian side and were already part of the February 21 agreement which the U.S. supported coup government broke.

The Russians know this, and while they do the diplomatic tango with the west, they know it's all for image, and that the only way to stop western aggression is by effectively countering their moves on the ground. This is what they are doing in the Ukraine.

Yes. I guess Russia applies Syrian lessions. So in Ukraine, there were civil self defense groups immediately.
Putin recognizes Crimea as independent state formally avoiding the accusation of annexation. South Eastern Ukraine now can do the same.
Western Ukraine, the Kiew government now can decide if they wish to fight. Down that road is World War III.

What I've got from MoA comments and posts is that Crimea needs Ukraine. East and south will do nicely. Federalisation will allow the states to continue supplying Crimea independent of a federal gov't without the need for annexation. I suspect Putin will annexe Crimea as it is essential wrt a presence in the Black Sea and the zionist imperialism has shown its vulnerability. It would also allow Russia to continue to be Eurasian with a say in European affairs down the road. However there are advantages to annexing east and south. It would leave the EU and US with an unpredictable little Korea type country. Putin is keeping the options open, probably dependent on what kind of gov't gets installed when the junta is obliged to hold elections.

Sanctions on Russia oil to ratchet up oil prices: Iran Oil Minister
Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh has warned of sharp oil price hikes if the United States imposes sanctions on the Russian oil sector in reaction to Crimea’s secession from Ukraine.
“If the Russia events become serious, oil prices will pick up sharply,” Zanganeh said on Tuesday.
US President Barack Obama has warned of harsh sanctions against Russia if Moscow continues to undermine Ukraine’s independence.
On Monday, Obama froze the assets of top Russian officials in the US, adding, “If Russia continues to interfere in Ukraine, we stand ready to impose further sanctions.”
Zanganeh said it is unlikely that the US will be able to impose sanctions on Russian oil.
“It is impossible for such a thing to happen because the market could not sustain the exclusion of Russian oil,” he said.

Ukraine’s parliament agreed to earmark USD 600 million from the country’s budget for the purchase of weapons, reparation of military hardware and improvement of training over the coming three months.

Ukraine - events moving quickly
The Next One: Moldova's Transnistria Region Said To Seek Russian Accession
Many had feared (or expected), fallout from Crimea's referendum and subsequent accession to Russia may embolden ethnic minorities in many bordering nations to seek self-determination. It appears that is taking place in Moldova where Vedomosti reports that Mikhail Burla, head of the Transnistria region's legislature, has asked Russia's Duma for draft laws on accession to Russia to be altered to allow the region to join. The timing of this move is surreal as headlines appeared this morning that Europe is looking to speed up its "association" with Moldova. In a 2006 referendum, over 97% of Transnistrians voted to join Russia...

Putin Formally Annexes Crimea, City Of Sevastopol To Russian Federation
And there it is:
RUSSIA, CRIMEA, SEVASTOPOL SIGN AGREEMENT ON ENTERING ACCESSION
REPUBLIC OF CRIMEA CONSIDERED PART OF RUSSIA FROM DATE OF SIGNING AGREEMENT - KREMLIN
And futures, stocks, and risk in general is soaring, sending the Kremlin precisely the message it needs to know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with this. Perhaps if Russia had annexed all of Ukraine, or the Baltics, or maybe even Poland, the S&P would have soared over 2000 already?

"Putin Did The Right Thing" Says Marc Faber, But Fears China Implications More
While Marc Faber is adamant that "there’s lots of funny things that are happening in China. And when the whole thing unwinds it will be a disaster," it is his comments with regard Ukraine (and Russia) that are worth paying significant new attention to. As The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report editor notes in this brief Bloomberg TV interview, if you put yourself in Putin's shoes "he did the right thing from his perspective," given Crimea's strategic importance. However, as Faber concludes, "Crimea moving to Russia gives essentially a signal to China that one day they can also move and seize some territory that they perceive belongs to them."

Britain Offers Warplanes For NATO Baltic Buildup

Hammond announces UK offer of RAF Typhoons to Nato
The UK is to offer Royal Air Force Typhoon aircraft to Nato “air policing” efforts in the east of Europe following Russian action in Crimea, the defence secretary has announced.
Philip Hammond said the aircraft would be available from late April to bolster the Polish contribution to the routine Nato defensive operations over Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
He was speaking during his department’s question session on 17 March 2014, after Conservative MP Sir Edward Leigh reflected that it was a relief Ukraine had not been made a Nato member “otherwise we might now be involved in a European war”.

Moldova: Transdniester, Gagauzia Announce Formal Independence
Rustavi 2 March 18, 2014
Moldova`s two regions claim independence aiming to join Russia
Following the developments in Ukraine`s Crimea, which has claimed independence and now aspires to join Russia, Moldova`s self-proclaimed region of Trandniester has also expressed its intention to join the Russian Federation.
The region has already applied to Russia to accept it in its borders. Trandniester broke away from Moldova in 1990 and its residents voted in favour of joining Russia in a referendum held in 2006.
Another region of Moldova, Gagauzia, has also announced its determination to split from the country. The Gagauzia administration has already announced the formation of its army. Gagauzia is an autonomous region of Moldova, which conducted referendum last February supporting separation from Moldova.
Moldovan government has assessed the referendum as illegal and illegitimate and even adopted a law, which prohibits conduct of such plebiscite on the territory of the country.

Another one bites the pavement
“Rigged Markets” and the Crimes of Wall Street: Banker Suicides, The Prequel to Global Financial Collapse
The onset of the great depression of the 1930's brought a spike in banker suicides, Will Rogers noted of the time, “When Wall Street took that tail spin, you had to stand in line to get a window to jump out of, and speculators were selling space for bodies in the East River.
Winston Churchill – the day after Black Friday – observed, “Under my very window a gentleman cast himself down fifteen stories and was dashed to pieces, causing a wild commotion and the arrival of the fire brigade,”
Nearly Eighty-five years later the phenomenon of banker suicides appears to have returned.
The week of January 20th would be the last for Swiss Re AG communications director Tim Dickenson but wouldn’t be the last in a string of deaths and suicides for International bankers.
Just days after Dickenson’s death on January 26, police found former Deutsche Bank executive Bill Broeksmit in his South Kensington London home after he’d hung himself.
The next day on January 27, JP Morgan senior manager Gabriel Magee, jumped 500 feet to his death from JP Morgan’s central London Headquarters he was a 39-year-old
A few days later on January 29, Chief Economist for Seattle based Russel investments, Mike Dueker, was reported missing by friends, he was found later at the base of a 50 foot embankment. Police called it a suicide.
On February 4th, in a bizarre manner of death, the coroner ruled Suicide for Richard Talley, 57 who founded American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado. He had a total of eight wounds to his body and head – the method of death – a Nail Gun.
Last week on, February 17th, Dennis Li Junjie jumped to his death, shortly after lunch, from a the roof of the Asian headquarters for JP Morgan – he was only 33.
In the last eight months there have been at least 12 reported deaths of bankers perishing under questionable circumstances.
High stress banking careers are being blamed for the recent suicides. However, the answer may not be that simple.
Returning to the program, via Skype from his New York office, to give us insight into these deaths is Gerald Celente publisher of the Trends Journal.
