CNN Correspondent Battles with Guest Over Allegations of Anti-Semitism in the Ukraine

01 newspaper

______________________________

CNN International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour started a heated exchange with New York University professor Stephen Cohen after he insisted that the Ukrainian opposition provoked Russia. On Monday, CNN hosts Christiane Amanpour and Wolf Blitzer sparred with one another after Blitzer quoted a Russian official who said that pro-European Ukrainians are anti-Semites and fascists. The most surprising part of the segment came when CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer repeated a statement by Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin that Nazi sympathisers took power in the Western Ukraine, to try to claim that there was, in fact, inflammatory rhetoric coming from Russia. Amanpour pounced on this comment and admonished Blitzer for repeating that charge, saying, “You have to be really careful by putting that across as a fact”, after Blitzer quoted Churkin, who said earlier today that “fascists and anti-Semites” were to blame for the unrest in the Ukraine. Cohen insisted, “The extremism didn’t come from Russia. It was coming from the Western Ukraine. There’s a small but resolute right-wing nationalist movement in the Ukraine. It’s quasi-fascist, and it’s dictating terms to this parliament in Kiev… which isn’t legitimate in law, international or constitutional”.

Editor’s Note:

Let’s talk about an unpleasant reality here in the Russian Orthodox diaspora. There’s a lot of anti-Semitism… too much, really. “The Jews are to blame for the revolution… the Jews ran the GULag… the Jews blew up the churches… the Jews took over all the cushy jobs, then, they all skipped off to Israel”. And so on, and so forth… the usual twaddle spouted by certified (and certifiable) idiots. I say, “Friends are where you find them, not where you look for them”. That is, keep an open mind, you find allies in the most surprising places (as you find enemies, too, by the way, as all mature (and sad) adults know).

Stephen Cohen is an ally of Russia… no, he’s not “one of us”… but he isn’t hostile, and that’s good enough in my book. He’s swimming against the tide… it’d go far more swimmingly for him if he attacked VVP… but he hasn’t. He isn’t “family”, he isn’t a friend (in the sense of being one in mind with us), but he isn’t hostile, and that makes him an ally. That’s good enough. Step on up and take a hit from the jug, Professor Cohen (and do tell that ignoranus Bob Dreyfuss to put a sock in it… his total lack of knowledge about Russia and the Orthosphere shows in his every post).

Don’t make unnecessary enemies… it puts you on the same level as the Svoboda creeps, the Right Sector schmidiots, and the Timoshenko junta kleptocrats… and we’re better than that. Let’s keep it focused and clean…

USA Will “Help” the Ukraine (Such Help Makes Sickness Look Good)

00 inflatable rat moneybags

______________________________

A White House statement said that the USA intends to grant the Ukraine loan guarantees of 1 billion USD (36.27 billion Roubles. 1.11 billion CAD. 1.12 billion AUD. 728 million Euros. 600 million UK Pounds) to help restore assets diverted by corrupt officials {that won’t replace much of what Yuliya stole over the years… nor much of what Turchinov stole as her confederate: editor} and reduce dependence on imported gas. The statement said, “As part of international efforts, the USA prepared an aid package, focusing on the most pressing needs of the Ukraine and helping it to carry out reforms to successfully carry out the IMF programme. The USA is ready to give help and funding to help Ukrainian businesses to find new export markets, to adapt to the pressure in the area of ​​trade, increase energy efficiency, and reduce dependence on imported gas”.

Editor’s Note:

The truth comes out. Note this:

[To help] it to carry out reforms to successfully carry out the IMF programme.

This means that the IMF and the USA intend smashing their boot full force into the faces of the weakest Ukrainians to benefit the oligarchs and Western “investors”. The West wants to dismantle what’s left of the Sov social safety net to profit the greedster crapitalists. Note well that Turchinov, who bleats his religiosity at every possible venue, will be one of those who’ll profit the most… he’s just following Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham, I suppose. This is why all decent people must support those opposing the kleptocrat junta… they didn’t take power legitimately, did they? The junta wants a US Republican programme on steroids… “If they’re to die, let them do it, and decrease the surplus population”. If this doesn’t sicken you, you have no soul.

By the way, the USA doesn’t have money for its own unemployed, but it’s throwing money at known kleptocrats who’ll steal most of it. That’s disgusting… and on top of that, they’re only giving a measly billion bucks in return for having the locals put in a wicked agenda that’ll harm most people in the Ukraine. That’s evil… and it’s Paul Ryan’s wet dream. Do notice that and act accordingly.

Polish Ministry of National Defence Sez “Poland isn’t Redeploying Troops in Connection with the Ukrainian Situation”

Polish soldiers march through Red Square

_______________________________

On Tuesday, the Polish Ministry of National Defence issued a communiqué stating that Poland isn’t redeploying any troops because of the Ukrainian situation. It categorically denied “media reports about Polish troop movements, linking them to the current Ukrainian situation”. Over the past few days, Polish internet users shared photos of Polish military equipment on railway platforms. Earlier, Polish Defence Minister Tomasz Siemoniak told TV channel TVN24 that the pictures published on the internet were from the Drawsko base area in northwest Poland, “that is, entirely without any geographic connection with this situation”.

Editor’s Note:

The Russian side of RIA is properly journalistic, but the English side is slanting many of its stories in a pro-Amerikantsy direction. I wonder if the authorities see that as well…

4 March 2014. A Tale of Two Images… Which Side are YOU On?

00 Russophobic Demonstration. 04.03.14

00 Russian priest blessing soldiers in Crimea. 04.03.14

______________________________

The top image shows pro-junta demonstrators in Italy… note how they have things in English… to suck up to the Amerikantsy. In the bottom image, we see a priest blessing Russian soldiers in the Crimea. This is what’s on offer, kids… there’s nothing else. You can crawl on your belly and kiss the naked ass of the Amerikantsy, or, you can stand tall and defend Orthodoxy! This means that you can’t support the neocons in any way, shape, or form. This includes the so-called “Pro-Life” movement… it’s in bed with rightwing politicians who hate our Orthodox civilisation, who wish to destroy it and replace with their theomachistic worship of Almighty Mammon. That’s sad; that’s going to disappoint many people… but we have NO option. We can’t support those who hold a dagger to our throats as a people and as a civilisational bloc. The OCA apparat is avoiding the issue… no doubt, as they don’t want to offend their Uniate friends (you can see Jillions’ influence, can’t you?), but the ROCOR is doing the right thing and praying for a swift and just end to the conflict and bloodshed (I wonder if Potapov renounced his ties to Langley… that’d be very good news, indeed).

Oh, do note that the group that collaborated willingly and enthusiastically with Hitler calls President Putin “Hitler”… when his elder brother died of the effects of starvation during the Siege of Leningrad. That’s not only offensive, it’s false… after all, the OUN/UPA never renounced terror as a tactic (and one of their favourite targets was Orthodox clergy).

00 Putin w Night Wolves. RUSSIA. 11.12.13

Do ya wanna ease on down the road with Vova, or do you want to suck up to the American Establishment’s lies?

______________________________

We must choose the West or we must choose Orthodoxy. Putin and HH or Obama and Dolan (yes… they’re brothers under the skin… they both desire the triumph of the West over Holy Rus)? Well? It’s up to you…

Choose well…
