The Question of Our Time

Monday, March 7th, 2022
How did Putin bring Iran into the Middle of Ukraine?

Given what we’ve learned in the last week(here, here, and here,) it’s time to stop and take stock of the situation.  I confess that there are missing data-points, and information I do not now possess, so that in large measure, we are left to fill in the blanks with speculative “best guesses.”  I’m generally uncomfortable with wild-ass guessing, but I think we can speculate a bit without resorting to madness. First, let us summarize the things we know, and have known for a time, and also consider events we’ve all witnessed. There’s one overriding question, like the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle, that prevents full understanding of what we’re seeing play out in the events of today.  It is the question that has been dominating my thoughts since learning of the fact that the Biden Administration has engaged the Russians to negotiate with the Iranians for a new deal on behalf of the United States. By this mechanism, Putin has managed to bring Iran into the middle of Ukraine.  What gives him the power to do that?

Let us consider what we know the DC Mafia has done:

  • They overthrew Gaddafi in Libya. They abandoned our people on the ground in Benghazi.
  • They funded and equipped a violent coup d’etat in 2014 in Ukraine.
  • They used Ukraine as their money-laundry, or at least one of them.
  • They permitted Russia to take Crimea without any significant opposition.
  • They created the first JCPoA in 2015, implementing it in 2016, including the infamous pallets of cash and billions more electronically to Iran.
  • They concocted a Russia narrative in order to try to defeat, and then undermine Trump in 2016 and onward.
  • They used their concocted narrative to confound Trump with a phony investigation(Mueller probe.)
  • They impeached Trump in 2019 with another concocted narrative, this time using Ukraine.
  • They used COVID to wreck the economy in 2020, an election year.
  • They used riots in 2020 to create further anti-Trump chaos.
  • They rigged the kidnapping plot of Governor Whitmer in 2020.
  • They used lawfare to rig the elections in key states, and may have used electronic means as well.
  • They stole the election using massive fraud.
  • They set-up the “insurrection” using stooges and Antifa fake patriots at the Capitol.
  • They used this as the pretense to impeach Trump again.
  • They created their fraudulent Jan6th ‘unselect’ Committee to create more investigatory buzz.
  • They rigged the census results to steal at least one seat from Texas, and perhaps one from Florida.
  • They gave us a disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan. Looks like a bungle but was intentional.
  • They entered into new negotiations with Iran, using Russia as their agents, and bringing Russia in on the overall deal.
  • They shared information with China that they told Ukraine they could enter NATO, knowing the Chinese would share with Russia.

These are just the things that come quickly to mind, and that I can tick off, from the top of my head. There are many more pieces one can wedge into this list. What strikes me about it all is the question: Why? Why are they so desperate to make a new deal with Iran? They were so intent on pushing the original deal through that they ignored the constitution, pretended it wasn’t a treaty, and Bob Corker crafted a bill they could shove through the Senate. It never went through the required constitutional process for a treaty. The whole thing was a cooked-up con-job, and it had far more than just Democrats backing it. This was the whole miserable swamp’s doing. They definitely intend to push it through again, and they’re going to do it before this coming election lest they lose the ability.  They’ll stop at nothing, and this is the question we must answer.

Why are they so intent on getting a new Iran deal through?  What did the first deal get them for our billions of dollars, including the pallets of cash? From where I sit, it looks like they’re paying Iran for something.  What does Iran have that they want?

Now add a new data-point somebody just threw over the transom:

Isn’t that special? Just as I suggested previously, they don’t care how Zelenskiy goes, so long as he goes.  They even want to make sure that if he goes, they can place their own puppet in charge of Ukraine, or Ukraine’s recognized government in exile, or whatever form of nonsense they’re going to create to justify their next actions. Now they’re making plans for his successor. As TheLastRefuge mentioned on twitter Sunday, it might just as well be COLONEL(damnit!) Alexander Vindman. Interestingly, although he’s been portrayed as clean and pure, it turns out Zelenskiy may just be another stooge for oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, with whom he’s had extensive business relations. Of course, the Biden administration slapped sanctions on Kolomoisky in early 2021, mostly because they want control of Zelenskiy, and going after the oligarch may be the way to do it. They figure if they can dirty up Kolomoisky and perhaps control some of his assets, they can put the squeeze on Zelenskiy.

These people are all gangsters, which brings us back to the central question I need somebody to answer.  Why is the Biden administration so desperate for a deal with the Iranians?  What’s the driving motive?  There’s no reason on Earth this gang of control freaks would ever turn over negotiations to Russia unless they were really deep into something, and the way they’re pushing dollars around, it’s pretty clear they’re willing to pay lots of our hard-earned money for whatever it is that they want from Iran.  I think if we can figure out what it is, we’re on our way to unmasking real treason. It’s just a sense I have that nobody does all of the above for trivial or ordinary reasons. Something is afoot with Iran.  Putin holds enormous power over these people because of Iran, and they’re now becoming so desperate, they’re openly talking about regime change in Russia, and assassinating Putin.  It seems as though he really has them by the…well, you know.

Editor’s Note: If any of you have a theory, please post it in the Disqus comments.  I’d dearly love to read your ideas.  What power does Iran give Putin in his dealings with the DC Mafia?

Editor’s Note #2: This morning, some time within 30 or so minutes of this post going up, somebody managed to penetrate security on this site and blank out a critical file. That left visitors able to get to the home page, but unable to follow any links on the site, or follow links from elsewhere that led directly to this or other posts. The hosting company is investigating, and it’s been repaired, and further locked-down. It seems there’s something here that somebody doesn’t want you to see, and according to the hosting service, it’s very, very strange the way this went down.

Questions We Must Begin to Ask

Monday, February 28th, 2022

How many outlets use the same story and imagery? How is this possible?

Over the last few days, I’ve begun to see a trend in Social Media.  Apparently, we’re to be prohibited from, or at least certainly discouraged from asking a number of important questions.  My list is not nearly complete.  I could ask many more, and hopefully, so could you.  The notion here isn’t to focus on the particular question, but to provide you the kinds of questions we must begin to ask.  We’re in the midst of a propaganda war, perhaps even more than watching an actual war in Ukraine.  We’re part of the battle-space in that information war, but we’re reliant on the information cartel that is made up of governments and media.  How much and how thoroughly have they been lying to us, not merely about Ukraine, or COVID, but virtually every story they bother to present to us?  The purpose of this post isn’t to really answer any of the questions, but to give you a sense of the sorts of questions we must ask. We fail to ask them at our own peril.  More, we must begin to ask what are the motives behind the suppression of questions. It’s time to be sheep no longer.

  • In the 1990s, under the flag of NATO, we effectively invaded a sovereign nation, Yugoslavia, partitioning it into what we declared to be sovereign, independent states to prevent ethnic cleansing. How does this differ from Putin invading Ukraine, partitioning it, and declaring some of the partitions as independent sovereign states, an action he claims will prevent a genocide?
  • If Putin is a “kleptocrat” because he used politics and the power of his office to personally enrich himself and his family and friends, is Joe Biden also a “kleptocrat?” Nancy Pelosi? Barack Obama? Mitt Romney? Adam Kinzinger? Mitch McConnell?
  • If warning potential adversaries that interference/intervention/attack against you/your forces/interests will be met with “Fire and Fury the likes of which [they’ve] never seen,” is Putin a bad guy for issuing a similar warning?
  • In 2014, did the United States help fund, arm and equip those who carried out a violent coup against the then sitting government of Ukraine?
  • Why does the media continuously recycle images and videos from past wars, conflicts, and even photo ops in the furtherance of their narrative?
  • Are “we” the good guys? Who’s “we?” “We” the United States? “We” NATO? “We” the Party of Davos? “We” the DC UniParty?
  • If we know the media has lied to us consistently over the last five or more years, what makes you think the lies stop at the water’s edge? Do you think other media outlets around the world are any less dishonest, controlled, or part of the information cartel? Why do you believe that?
  • Do you understand that media companies are now global? As just one example, do you know all the assets of News Corp?
  • Sometimes, events are used to cover-up or hide other events. Can you name a single thing that was obscurred or hidden by the constant Ukraine war coverage this past weekend?
  • You may trust, as one example, a particular radio talk host. Have you asked where your radio hosts get their news and information about ongoing events? Have you asked them how they’ve derived their opinions? This goes for bloggers, including me. Where do the people who tell you their opinions derive the information from which they’ve developed these opinions?
  • Media are very good at concealing full information about a given story. How many examples can you name in which blaring headlines and chyrons present a less-than-full accounting of the real facts in the story? I point to the issue with SWIFT ban headlines mentioned in a post Monday morning, as one example. Have you seen more of the same?
  • Why are all the people involved in the current official US Ukraine narrative the same people involved in the first Trump Impeachment Hoax and the 2016 Russia Hoax?

We all need to ask more questions. Many more questions. We need to dig deeper for the answers. We need to doubt most everything. The media and government bear witness to events and situations all over the globe, and we watch and listen because we can’t possibly be everywhere at once. How easy is our actual remoteness from events and stories used as the avenue by which we can be misled or flatly lied-to?

Start asking questions, everywhere.  We’re in a global quagmire created by the information cartel.  It’s time we begin to reach outside it, or decipher it, or break down its walls.
