The CIA director was sent to Kiev to launch a military suppression of the Russian separatists in the eastern and southern portions of Ukraine, former Russian territories for the most part that were foolishly attached to the Ukraine in the early years of Soviet rule.

Washington’s plan to grab Ukraine overlooked that the Russian and Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine were not likely to go along with their insertion into the EU and NATO while submitting to the persecution of Russian speaking peoples.  Washington has lost Crimea, from which Washington intended to eject Russia from its Black Sea naval base. Instead of admitting that its plan for grabbing Ukraine has gone amiss, Washington is unable to admit a mistake and, therefore, is pushing the crisis to more dangerous levels.

If Ukraine dissolves into secession with the former Russian territories reverting to Russia, Washington will be embarrassed that the result of its coup in Kiev was to restore the Russian provinces of Ukraine to Russia.  To avoid this embarrassment, Washington is pushing the crisis toward war.

The CIA director instructed Washington’s hand-picked stooge government in Kiev to apply to the United Nations for help in repelling “terrorists” who with alleged Russian help are allegedly attacking Ukraine. In Washington’s vocabulary, self-determination is a sign of Russian interference. As the UN is essentially a Washington-financed organization, Washington will get what it wants.

The Russian government has already made it completely clear some weeks ago that the use of violence against protesters in eastern and southern Ukraine would compel the Russian government to send in the Russian army to protect Russians, just as Russia had to do in South Ossetia when Washington instructed its Georgian puppet ruler to attack Russian peacekeeping troops and Russian residents of South Ossetia.

Washington knows that the Russian government cannot stand aside while one of Washington’s puppet states attacks Russians.  Yet, Washington is pushing the crisis to war.

The danger for Russia is that the Russian government will rely on diplomacy, international organizations, international cooperation, and on the common sense and self-interest of German politicians and politicians in other of Washington’s European puppet states.

For Russia this could be a fatal mistake. There is no good will in Washington, only mendacity. Russian delay provides Washington with time to build up forces on Russia’s borders and in the Black Sea and to demonize Russia with propaganda and whip up the US population into a war frenzy.  The latter is already occurring.

Kerry has made it clear to Lavrov that Washington is not listening to Russia. As Washington pays well, Washington’s European puppets are also not listening to Russia. Money is more important to European politicians than humanity’s survival.

In my opinion, Washington does not want the Ukraine matters settled in a diplomatic and reasonable way. It might be the case that Russia’s best move is immediately to occupy the Russian territories of Ukraine and re-absorb the territories into Russia from whence they came. This should be done before the US and its NATO puppets are prepared for war. It is more difficult for Washington to start a war when the objects of the war have already been lost. Russia will be demonized with endless propaganda from Washington whether or not Russia re-absorbs its traditional territories. If Russia allows these territories to be suppressed by Washington, the prestige and authority of the Russian government will collapse. Perhaps that is what Washington is counting on.

If Putin’s government stands aside while Russian Ukraine is suppressed, Putin’s prestige will plummet, and Washington will finish off the Russian government by putting into action its many hundreds of Washington-financed NGOs that the Russian government has so foolishly tolerated.  Russia is driven with Washington’s Fifth columns.

In my opinion, the Russian and Chinese governments have made serious strategic mistakes by remaining within the US dollar-based international payments system. The BRICS and any others with a brain should instantly desert the dollar system, which is a mechanism for US imperialism. The countries of the BRICS should immediately create their own separate payments system and their own exclusive communications/Internet system.

Russia and China have stupidly made these strategic mistakes, because reeling from communist failures and oppressions, they naively assumed that Washington was pure, that Washington was committed to its propagandistic self-description as the upholder of law, justice, mercy, and human rights.

In fact, Washington, the “exceptional, indispensable country,” is committed to its hegemony over the world. Russia, China, and Iran are in the way of Washington’s hegemony and are targeted for attack.

The attack on Russia is mounting.

    ON ALL GROUNDS I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT WASHINGTON ALONE IS LEADING ANYONE TO WAR, ALL COUNTRIES ON THIS PLANET ARE CONTRIBUTORS, GREAT AND SMALL. WHAT IS LEADING PEOPLE TO WAR IS THE ORIGINAL SIN OF ADAM AND EVE, THAT EVENTUALLY CONSTRUCTED BABYLON, AND THE WHORE OF THE EARTH IS RISING AND MAKING A COME BACK ONE LAST TIME. THERE ARE COUNTRIES ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH WHO WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU AND ME, AS AMERICANS DEAD, AND THOSE WHO CAN NOT SEE THIS NEED THEIR HEADS EXAMINED. NEVER MIND THIS HIGHER CONSCIENOUSNESS GRAP, THIS IS REALITY AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DO WANT TO SEE US DEAD. FOR EXAMPLE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS ARTICLE THAT HAS BEEN UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR DECADES NOW, DOES THIS SEEM LOVING TO YOU???

    Sadie, I totally agree with your thoughts. We will create more of the bad and ugly in the world, if we continue putting our attention on it, instead we have to confirm, that all evil has been removed and do our inner work, that we don’t magnetize the negativity in the outer world and draw it to us, like Jean said. Hugs! Veraiconica

    • Jean says:

      Yes, Veraiconica, there is no way I could survive what I do every day if I allowed it to affect my inner place of peace. I accepted it as a challenge, and while it has been a very real struggle for me, in a way it has been a very real gift.

      Why do I put this info out – day after day?

      Because I believe that with ‘real’ facts visible in the outer world that people can deal with in their left brains, sooner or later they will come to realize that something is very wrong in our world. As above, so below. When they finally understand this, maybe even when they can no longer duck these facts, then their right brains and their hearts will be in a position to open. The Western world lives almost totally in its left brain by the design of the cabal. . .

      Hope this helps people to understand . . .

      Hugs,
      ~Jean

      • veraiconica says:

        Jean, this must be a daily challenge for you, posting all these terrible facts about life on this planet in this time of history and not being affected by it and living in your heart. I think little by little more people are becoming aware, what is going on. Hopefully we will soon reach critical mass. That’s when the tide will be turning. I am actual doing the same in my every day life, when negativity comes my way, I tread it as a challenge to stay neutral and in my heartspace. Whenever caught up in negative emotions, I have been able to move through them quickly now. Also staying grounded to nature helps us a lot.
        Your blog is a true labor of love for humanity. Sending you much love! Veraiconica

    I’ll sure be glad when the ETs come, and abolish D.C! LOL Cheers

    • Jean says:

      John, I’m giving up. You just don’t get it, do you? Hugs, ~Jean

    • When we become as them, the Prime Directive no longer applies. So both perspectives are quite correct. 🙂

      Personal Disclosure is the first step, and I think most of us can agree on that. I also support the idea that “DC” already doesn’t exist, but everyone’s still playing the game because nobody’s informed them otherwise. Or perhaps the politicians feel it is still expected of them.

      • futuret says:

        YOUR POINT VERY WELL TAKEN. EVERYONE IS KEEPS ON PRETENDING AND PRETENDING. MANY PEOPLE ARE FOSSILS, BUT DO NOT KNOW IT YET, OR WANT TO STAY IN A STATE OF DENIAL.

  4. Sadie says:

    OK. I had this confirmed for me once and for all today. Jean, you are wonderful to post all these stories and keep everyone in the loop. I am worried, though, about thousands of readers focused on all this drum-beating for war. I would like to offer a suggestion, please. I know alot of your readers will know this. What we FOCUS on, becomes REAL. There is no disputing this law. It has been absolutely proven to me in my life, sometimes literally miraculously, time and time again. Please please please – if EVERYONE who reads this blog would, once or twice a day, rather than fearing or being angry or focusing in ANY WAY on the wars, the chemtrails, the financial thievery, or whatever it is, would just turn it around and for example, every time you see a plane spewing chemtrails, say to yourself, “I am so happy and grateful that every last chemtrail plane has been grounded, all the chemicals have been destroyed, and all the perpetrators are now being indicted. YES and THANK YOU!” Or when you see stories like this one, STOP, turn it around, close your eyes and say “I am SO happy and grateful that all war plans have been aborted, the people in Washington who WERE promoting negative plans have all been removed from power, and good people are now restoring our country and the world to real freedom, peace and prosperity for all. YES and THANK YOU!” Or “I am SO HAPPY and grateful that the free energy technologies are being released and implemented all over the world! YES!!! THANK YOU!!!” I swear to God, if every single one of your readers would just set any cynicism aside for just a few times a day and do this – we would see miracles. Really feel the joy you will feel when it happens. And it wouldn’t hurt to watch this very short but immensely moving video of Pharrell Williams’ reaction to people all over the world dancing to his song. We MUST raise this up. Please, everyone, try this for a few weeks, and let’s see what happens. IT ABSOLUTELY EFFING WORKS!!! We can do this. Thank you!

    • Jean says:

      Thanks, Sadie. Let me add that I suggest we all do our inner work so the outer world doesn’t create negative, dark emotions in us. As above, so below. Hugs, ~Jean

    Might be worth headlining this one Jean.

    Despite the tremendous work Professor James Tracey from “Memory Hole” has done in exposing SH inconsistencies , VT have just introduced a tremendous summary of data. Note that Prof. James is focusing right now on the Boston Marathon inconsistencies.
