Indications Its Kiev Regime Is Crumbling.

Blowback to America Could Be Substantial.


Reports coming in, both from professional analysts, and from well-informed residents of the Ukrainian areas where we are bombing the residents and assassinating their leaders (whom our government calls "terrorists"), suggest that Obama's Ukrainian coup in February, which installed a regime that is now ethnically cleansing Ukraine's southeast, is already producing blowback that will be far costlier to the United States than if we had not done it.

If these reports prove to be correct (and the present author has checked and verified their details; so, I think they are), then Obama's Ukrainian ploy will annihilate his reputation inside the United States, as it already is doing outside this country, where the press aren't controlled nearly so much by the U.S. aristocracy, but instead by those of other nations -- aristocracies whose interests don't always dovetail with those of America's aristocracy (who back him on this, especially since he's aggressively following the Republican policy-position on it; his opponents on this are almost only progressive Democrats).

Important history is being made now, and it is not being reported to the American people while it is occurring. The present article is based upon the latest strategic reports regarding the situation in Ukraine's conflict-area.

A report, June 24th, by an East European business-consulting firm, Geopolitics.by, which is based in Belarus, says that there is growing dissension between the oligarchs atop the current Ukrainian Government, especially between Ihor Kolomoysky ($6.3 billion in Forbes) vs. Petro Poroshenko ($1.3 billion in Forbes), and that the Kiev regime is heading quickly to exhaustion because of the difficulty of finding enough people other than former convicts to do the killing that must be done in the southeast in order to pacify the resisting regions.

This report says that Kolomoysky finances the 'Azov Battalion.' They were created on 13 April 2014 in a decree by the secret-police chief, the regime's SS leader, Arsen Avakov, who, along with Kolomoysky, planned the May 2nd massacre of resistors inside Odessa's Trade Unions Building, which massacre sparked Ukraine's civil war. The Azov Battalion troops had formerly been troops of the Social-National Assembly, of the Social-Nationalist Party, which was patterned upon Hitler's National-Socialist (or Nazi) Party. According to wikipedia's article on the Social-National Assembly (or S.N.A.), "In the late 2000s, Ukrainian president Victor Yushchenko [who was supported by the U.S. CIA] and the Our Ukraine bloc [his Party] bolstered the S.N.A. and other far-right groups by supporting an explicitly nationalist view of Ukrainian history.[6] Following the 2009 death of Maksym Chaika, an S.N.A member who was killed in a fight with antifascists in Odessa, Yushchenko supported the far-right interpretation of Chaika's death, describing him and others as heroes and victims driven to violence for a just cause." So, the U.S. was backing Ukrainian Nazis, even before Barack Obama became the U.S. President. Actually, the CIA was advising Ukraine's Nazis (both of its two Nazi, or racist-fascist, parties) at least as early as 2004, under George W. Bush's regime. Due to this, for example, one of Ukraine's two Nazi Parties, the Social Nationalist Party of Ukraine, changed its name to "Svoboda" or "Freedom," in order to make it seem appealing to the rising numbers of American libertarians or supporters of "freedom" or "liberty" (a slogan heavily promoted by America's aristocracy, who crave liberty for themselves, from and against democratic government, such as regulatory agencies). Svoboda is one of the two Ukrainian Nazi parties in the country's present four-party ruling coalition, and the other two parties are merely fascist (not racist-fascist, or "nazi").

Today's Ukraine has the most-far-right government on Earth. It was appointed by Obama's agent, Victoria Nuland, who used to be Vice President Dick Cheney's top foreign-policy adviser. Her husband, Robert Kaplan, was a co-founder, along with Bill Kristol, of the Project for a New American Century, which cheer-led America's 2003 invasion against Iraq. Kaplan also is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and is also an editor of The New Republic, a "neo-conservative" publication that's designed to appeal to Americans who think of themselves as being Democrats, thus conservative "Democrats." Victoria Nuland was also a protege of both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. She and her husband are highly regarded by America's aristocracy, which controls the entire Republican Party, and also the top level (the national level -- the Presidential-campaigns level) of the Democratic Party.

The Obama-team chose Arseniy Yatsenyuk to lead the post-coup Ukrainian Government, and he continues in power under the President, Petro Poroshenko, who was elected on May 25th to replace the one whom we overthrew on February 22nd, Viktor Yanukovych. Whereas Yanukovych was elected by all of Ukraine (when it was a unified country, not in civil war), Poroshenko was elected only by voters in the country's northwest, because had Yatsenyuk had begun on May 9th an ethnic-cleansing campaign against the residents in the southeast, to get the people who had voted for Yanukovuch to become either refugees abroad (in Russia), or else dead (if they don't leave). This cleansing of Yanukovych's voters will enable the Ukrainian Government in Kiev to continue as being far-right, but now presumably democratically electing its fascist rulers, rather than imposing them via a staged coup, like we did in February of this year.

There also have been other, independent, reports, saying that Kolomoysky and Poroshenko are in conflict against each other. On June 23rd, the great American journalist George Eliason, who happens to live in Ukraine, reported "Ukraine: Notes from the Southeast," saying that Kolomoysky refuses to take orders from Poroshenko and considers him to be weak for even suggesting a "peace plan" with the people in the southeast: "In reaction to the peace plan, Kolimoisky ... stated that he will not be governed by Poroshenko. He would continue military operations until all the Moskal [Russian-speakers] are killed. Take him seriously: this is a guy that rips down holocaust memorials (Crimea- before Maidan) and built luxury housing where the crematorium stood. He organized and paid for the Odessa Trade Union House massacre and the Mariupol massacre. He has challenged the legitimacy of Kiev and declared himself a separatist. Should we tell president Obama? Does Ms. Psaki [Obama's stooge to the press] know anything about this? Is it Putin's fault [like the stenographic U,S. press says]?" Eliason lays it on the line.

Furthermore, the Obama regime installed Kolomoysky, whereas voters in Ukraine's northwestern half actually had a say in "choosing" Poroshenko. Kolomoysky is the monster that Obama and his operative Victoria Nuland are directly responsible for. He couldn't be a bigger embarrassment to them (though America's aristocratically controlled press doesn't even note this remarkable fact -- Americans are ignorant of it).

Furthermore, a Russian news-site headlined on June 27th, "Kolomoysky Said that He Would Not Obey the Peace Decree Issued by Poroshenko, and reported that, "Oligarch Igor Kolomoisky openly declared during Poroshenko working trip to the Donbass, that he would not obey the President's decree of achieving a peaceful settlement, and that his army 'will, no matter what, finish off' the resistance fighters in the South East. This information was revealed by a source in the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, on conditions of anonymity, RIA Novosti reported. 'During Poroshenko's working visit to Donetsk region Kolomoysky openly told the president that he will never obey and his army will still finish off these separatists," said the agency informer. The source added that oligarch Kolomoysky remains the main adversary not just of the ceasefire but [of] any talks with the resistance forces."

Kolomoysky has a consistent record of violently imposing his will, and he had won control over billions of dollars of wealth in Ukraine by use of his privately hired army.

Geopolitics.by continued its report, by saying that the Kiev regime's bombers are now flying over the southeast "blindly," because the "militias destroyed or took control of radars on controlled territory." If true, this would virtually doom our campaign to force the residents there to either die or else flee, because Obama's plan requires continued success of that bombing campaign against the people who had voted for the previous Ukrainian President, Yanukovych. There are also videos and pictures of the firebombs being dropped on these people.
