Obama is famous for drawing imaginary red lines in the sand and then not acting. He warned Russia about their involvement in the Syrian conflict in which hundreds of thousands have died. He warned Russia against assisting Iran with its nuclear program. Putin has ignored Obama at every turn and holds him in absolute contempt. The unfolding war in Ukraine is just another case in point. Obama does not have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to Putin. Or, is Obama playing for a much higher authority and Putin is supposed to win? I will address the “theatrical aspect” of what could be playing out behind the scenes in the Rothschild/Rockefeller bankster empire in a later article. This article is focusing on connecting the dots of the key events as they are occurring in near real time as it relates to a military standoff in Ukraine.

Putin Receives Approval to Invade Ukraine

On March 1, 2014 at 420pm (EST) Reuters reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin has insisted upon and has won the approval of the Russian  parliament to invade the Ukraine. Conversely, the new Ukrainian government is warning of war and has subsequently put its troops on high alert and has appealed to NATO for military assistance.

Ukranian Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya has met with European and US officials and sent a request to NATO to “examine all possibilities to protect the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine”. Obama is already on the record stating that the US would defend the Ukraine.

Reuters is further reporting that troops wearing uniforms with no identifying insignias, but have been identified as Russian troops, riding in vehicles with Russian license plates, have captured and occupied Crimea.

As I reported on Friday, Crimea is an isolated peninsula in the Black Sea which contains the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The maintenance of the Black Sea Fleet is vital to the defense of Russia’s Southwestern underbelly. Further, any hope that Russia maintains of defending Syria and Iran from an American invasion rests upon the preservation of the Black Sea Fleet Headquarters in the city of Sevastopol.  Kiev’s new authorities have been powerless to stop them.

In a later development, Ukrainian acting Prime Minister, Arseny Yatseniuk, stated that “It is unacceptable when armored Russian military vehicles are out in the center of Ukrainian towns”. The statement was made on Saturday before a government meeting in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev.

Russian aircraft carrying nearly 2,000 troops have landed at a military airbase near the regional capital of the restive Crimean peninsula, a top Ukrainian official has said, accusing Moscow of an “armed invasion”.

Thirteen Russian aircraft landed at the airport of Gvardeyskoye

[near the city of Simferopol] with 150 people in each one,” Sergiy Kunitsyn, the Ukrainian president’s special representative in Crimea. He also said that the airspace had been closed when the deployment happened. It strongly appears that a massive Russian troop buildup is underway in Crimea. Is invading Ukraine Putin’s next move?

CNN is reporting that airspace in the region reopened Saturday, only a day after Ukraine accused Russian Black Sea forces of trying to seize two important airports in Crimea. However, Ukrainian security forces had prevented them from taking control. It appears that Russia is not committed to physically engaging Ukrainian military forces at this time. Once the full Russian force is in place, that fact may change.

The Wall Street Journal is Reporting that pro-Russian Crimean militias are blocking key roads to the area in order to keep the military forces from Kiev entering the region and assuming governmental control. These events are clearly the precursor to a bloody civil war in which Russia will clearly interject themselves into the conflict.

Speaking on Friday, Obama, the US president, said he was “deeply concerned” at the reports of the troop movements of Russian Federation soldiers in Crimea. Obama said: “Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty would be deeply disturbing.”

Ukraine’s acting president, Oleksander Turchinov, is accusing Russia of committing an open invasion of Crimea, thus, this is an attack upon the sovereignty of Ukraine.

Turchinov compared Russians actions to what they did to Georgia, in 2008, in terms of invading  Akhazia region which has a large ethnic Russian population.

Russia’s actions remind me of how Hitler’s Germany occupied Czechoslovakia without firing a shot in order to ostensibly protect German speaking residents. Crimea is a unique province within Ukraine in that most of the citizens are Russian and align themselves with Moscow. Putin has stated that Russian forces are in Crimea to protect the interest of pro-Russians in the area.

Obama and European leaders would consider skipping a G8 summit in Sochi, Russia, planned for this summer if Russia intervenes militarily in Ukraine, a senior US official said on Friday.

The senior official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the US is consulting with its European partners on potential costs that might be imposed on Russia for any Ukraine intervention.The official said Washington’s response could also include withholding deeper trade and commerce ties that Moscow is seeking. These are impotent threats being made by Obama.

Stop Or I’ll Say Stop Again

Obama is all bark and no bite as he has called on Putin, the Russian president, to stop “provocations” in the semi-autonomous region of Crimea.

“Russia has sent forces into Crimea… they are working on scenarios which are fully analogous with Abkhazia, when having initiated a military conflict, they started to annex the territory,” he said in televised comments.

Two Crimean airports, the main international airport in Simferopol and a military airfield in the city of Sevastopol, have been taken over by what the Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov claimed to be members of the Russian Federation Fleet, in a statement posted on his Facebook account.

 

It is quite clear that we have multiple accounts which clearly state that Russia has occupied Crimea and the only opposition are a few Ukrainian military bases in the region. Again, Putin has outmaneuvered the West just as he did in Syria in the Fall of 2013. 

 

The West does not appear to have the stomach to oppose Putin in Crimea. Putin has won. However, if Putin goes into Ukraine, that may be a different story.

 The rubber will meet the road when the Russians decide what they are going to do with Ukrainian military bases located in Crimea. Clearly, if the Russians attack, or prevent resupply to these bases, the Ukraine will attack. There are already unconfirmed reports that there is a rapid deployment force of American NATO troops which have arrived in Ukraine. Everything points towards war if Putin continues on his present path. 

It is clear that the Russians are not going to remove its military interests from Crimea. It is also clear that the Ukrainians are not going to remove their military bases from Crimea. Something has to give and the fate of Ukraine, and ultimately the world will depend on whether or not a field commander does not make a miscalculation resulting in a shot hear around the world.

This just in, the US Sixth Fleet is sailing towards Crimea. Wasn’t it nice that the powers that be could wait until the corporate sponsored Olympics concluded? This opens the real possibility that Obama and Putin are following a predetermined script.

    I’m a bit confused by what is going on there now that I listened to Joel Skousen a couple of days ago. He said this entire event has been orchestrated by……..Russia! He seems to base this on the police and anti protest forces simply giving up. What Joel didn’t explain was the phone call between Victoria Nuland and the ambassador discussing who they were going to install as leader in Ukraine. After all, they have spent 5 billion to make that happen! Clearly medling again in another country. The only other option is that Russia and the west are cooperatively, knowingly following a script.
    A few things I am certain about. I find it sickening that the U.S. can threaten any country not to involve itself in the sovereighty of another nation when they are constantly doing just that. Everything the U.S. government accuses others of being, they themselves have become.
    I’m wondering if this mess isn’t a huge distraction to Russia so the U.S. can get back to it’s ‘mission’ with Syria and Iran. Do I hear another false flag coming?

    EDITOR’S NOTE: SKOUSEN HAS BEEN SPOUTING THE SAME WORN OUT SCENARIO OF 13 AMERICAN CITIES GETTING NUKED FOR THE PAST 2 DECADES. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT HE HAS CHANGED HIS TUNE BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY TUNED OUT BY THE MASSES, SO HE IS COPYING THE IDEAS OF OTHERS. EXCEPT, HE HAS IT WRONG AGAIN. THE BANKSTERS ARE ORGANIZING THIS MASS DECEPTION. OH, THERE WILL STILL BE A WAR, BUT THERE IS A SCRIPT TO FOLLOW. NOW THAT I HAVE SAID IT, EXPECT TO READ IT IN WORLD AFFAIRS BRIEF THIS WEEK.

    “Today the majority of the Ukrainian armed forces deployed in Crimea passed to the side of the authorities of the Crimean autonomous region. The transition was absolutely peaceful, without a single shot fired either by the military or by the forces of self-defense,” an unnamed source told RIA Novosti news agency.

    Again, Putin saves the world from antagonists from the West…how many more times can he pull it off? Just saying, don’t think any political figure really cares about us minions, but dang, how many conflicts until someone snaps?

    Obama warned Putin not to interfere with the plans of the psychopathic USI to commit genocide on the Syrian civilians on behalf of the Crown Corporation and to expand the borders of Is Ra El. Putin threatened the USI with attack if we carried out the overt slaughter. Obama backed down and proceeded with the slaughter using covert means. Even if this was theater. How is it that watching this scene unfold, that who would not allow us to slaughter another nation on behalf of Rothchild Banking murderers is bad guy and Obama who was to order the murders is the timid innocent mouse sans balls who lacked the courage to carry out the slaughter anyway. This sounds like the logic of insane McCain.

    Who has a greater right to be there, Russia, or the U.S ? Lately I have made a few observations about these two leaders. Not saying Putin is the ideal leader, but who the hell is anymore. One thing though, he went through and got permission from the Russian Senate to go there, while BARRY will just sign an EO, and make it so Scotty…….What part of that message do you not understand ?

    The second worst thing that can happen is for Amerika’s Fairy Godfather, our Obaminable Ayatollah, to bluster and threaten and then back down. The worst thing is for us, either by accident or design, to get into a war with Russia that can get huge numbers of our personnel wounded or killed and do immense harm to what remains of our ruined economy. And such a conflict might easily lead to a thermonuclear holocaust, and the agonizing deaths of tens of millions of us, and, ultimately, the collapse of civilization.
    How would we feel if, say, China fomented a revolution in Canada, bringing that nation under the control of a government utterly hostile to Amerika, and then perhaps even based Chinese troops and nuclear-armed missiles and aircraft there? The Ukraine is vital to Russia and of no importance to the US. We are meddling where we don’t belong and picking unnecessary fights we cannot win.

  10. iwitness02 March 2, 2014 at 7:55 am

    Please say it ain’t so. Obama and Putin could be following the same script.
    I was just telling my wife that I was confused on this. I can’t tell if it is Obama/Putin Theater,
    or Obama/Putin conflict. Nothing is easy. Ukraine and the US state of Conn. are two first class powder kegs. I can think of a few other powder kegs as well. We should all be getting Hazardous Duty Pay. Tax Free.
    Until human welfare and well being are the top priority on the planet, I am sure this steady state of conflict is going to be business as usual. That is until it escalates.
    I would be more troubled than I am, except for one thing:
    Our Lord put up.
    Satan will shut up.
    Things will begin to improve handsomely after that.

  11. Bruce Ericksen March 2, 2014 at 7:57 am

    Russian history has proven over the 300 plus years that it does not allow enemies of the government to get to close to its borders. The one exception was Hitler and the price that the Russians paid was immense in loss of life due to the stupidity of Stalin. Putin is not Stalin and is not going to allow the International Bankers or NATO to get close. In the case of Ukraine Putin is on pretty solid ground Crimea is basically Russian in both language and culture as in most of Eastern Ukraine and already other parts of the country are setting themselves up to side with the Russians. The eastern part of the country has the industry and ability to win any kind of civil war and in fact the new leader of the Ukraine has announced that they won’t fire on the Russians. That may be more due to the fact that his Army is not made up of the same people who were burning buildings and etc. in Kiev. I agree with Dave it is a very scary situation due to the fact that we have no idea what Obama might do in this situation and I have no doubt that Putin is open to discussion but not to a bunch of nationalists who have appointed and banker as the Premier of the country.
    I equate what has happened in the Ukraine to the separation between people who live in the country and the ones who live in the city in the U.S. Sad to say we may head down the same road if we don’t end up in global war first.

    War is serious business and right now, business is good. So the New World Order makes money, depopulates the world and destabilizes governments all at one swell foop. And while that’s going on, the people sit at home watching the media tell them it’s all just politics.

  13. James Timms March 2, 2014 at 8:10 am

    Thank You Dave Hodges!
    Satan has tools, weapons and ways of delivering his evil upon the unsuspecting. I have been to a number of magic shows in my life. I am amazed at the things a great magician can do. Many of the great ones employ the DARK ARTS to achieve their desired effect. We ogle at the incredible illusions these magicians can accomplish, with us, the viewers, knowing absolutely that the manifestation of what we see is a LIE. The point is, no matter how they try to obfuscate the magic acts, as they develop, they become so convincing that even the most grounded of observers may be taken in by their illusion.
    While all of these things are taking place, I wonder what next move they are setting up, or what magnificent LIE they are initiating with this invasion. The stage is being set. I am comforted that you are one of the most enlightened of all the individuals I’ve read, as to the connecting of past, present and future events occurring in the immediate. What intrigues me is the lack of understanding of the world events being connected under the great umbrella of the greatest DECEIVER ever known, from the beginning of time. With your history in understanding the AGENDA 21 initiatives, the ILLUMINATI, THE BILDERBERGS, THE FREE MASONS, and all the historic entities from ancients to present, I believe you are leading up to something. I believe eventually, if you’ve not already in some previous writing, you will EXPOSE this heinous group as those from ancient times. I know the skin texture of the “EYE OF HORUS” on the back of the American Dollar Bill. This is the indicator of the DNA type of none other than the LEADERS of the NWO, and their followers or minions as we might call them.
    The history goes back to the beginning of time for us, Genesis 3, where God Spoke to the SERPENT. Understand the alliances of all the nations involved as major players, see through the obfuscation and then? You will see that these powerful families are powered by none other than the FALLEN ANGELS. Their leader, as we know him, is Satan. I believe the manifestation of their entire program of GLOBAL CONTROL occurred in a very similar manner, just prior to what is called THE GREAT FLOOD OF NOAH. I also believe it’s going to happen again, very soon. It’s gonna be FIRE this time, but, IT’S GONNA RAIN! AND SOON!
    There’s a great number of things that will come to pass prior to this MOST INCREDIBLE EVENT. The one thing that men have forgotten is GOD’S TREASURE. Isaiah 33:6 “And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the FEAR of the LORD is his TREASURE”. He told us! Don’t do these things! Mankind is about to learn that he, GOD, means what he says and says what he means.
    Thank you for the wisdom and stability you provide with your knowledge! I believe there will be many who step forward with clarity of vision of events upcoming, that will give those who can see, understanding! Your writings and videos will give clarity to many of the events unraveling as they have been lined out for thousands of years in the WORDS of the book we call the BIBLE! I take Great comfort in the words of My Lord Jesus Christ, “for of those my father has given me, I have lost none” Thanks again Watchman Dave! ‘HE’S COMING!”

    One hundred years ago, these same people were fomenting the same type of “civil strife” against the Czarist government of Russia. They succeeded in using the same tactics to destroy the existing political structure then replacing it with their Rothchild puppets who proceeded with one of the largest mass genocides in the history of the world. 1914=2014 Here we go again? The juggernaut rolls on. However, planetary extinction is now within their power. What a wild ride. History is just a series of reruns until the final curtain falls.

    People with military backgrounds have always said that this is the wrong part of the world for U.S. military to mix it up in with Russians or the Ukrainians. With the sixth fleet headed there, this can only get worse not better. For those who say that Putin has no business interceding,maybe those people should be telling Obama, the bankers, and the U.S. military industrial complex that as well since we sit in over one hundred countries right now with our military, and NGO’s.

    Ok, allow me to refresh everyone’s memory. There are a series of events at play here. We, myself included all to often allow certain events to slide into our personal memory holes. Here are a few very important events to consider. Did everyone just magically forget that the Iranian’s recently set a warship off the eastern coast of the United States? Is it simple coincidence now that there are 2 Russian navy vessels parked right off the coast of Cuba? Did we all forget about the Russian submarine that was able to float around the Gulf of Mexico undetected? Does anyone recall the Chinese firing a rocket off the coast of California? Were these just isolated events taken place under this current administration?

    Now consider there are unproven reports of Chinese fleets headed towards the Caribbean. Call me crazy, and don’t feel special because you wouldn’t be the first. However this administration is currently downsizing our military from a number of different avenues. Add the reports off foreign troops on our soil, and I have to say. I think have we not only been duped and currently fully surrounded, but I think we may have lost before it has even begun.

  22. GlendaleBurbank March 2, 2014 at 10:06 am

    Dave,
    Whilst listening to the x22 report..many good points brought up. CIA spent 5 Billion to back the so called “freedom” of Ukraine. Ukraine is sovereign and is being goaded into joining the EU and USA western banking system. Russia is protecting its borders which it has a right to do. This is an orchestrated ploy by the banksters to have Ukraine carry Western Bank debt. This is a giant dog and pony show for the banks. Putin is in the right here…we have no business interfering with Ukraine…its not our war. The banksters are the real threat here.

  23. greatdogs March 2, 2014 at 10:17 am

    There is an interesting interview with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts over at King World News about his take on the Ukraine situation.

    Towards the end of the interview, the host asks Dr. Roberts on how, I paraphrase, a Russia vs NATO war would affect the price of gold. Roberts’ answer basically was when the nukes start flying, the price of gold won’t matter.

    Well, if Americans do exactly what the Russians have done every time the USan Empire has invaded a sovereign country in order to steal its natural resources whilst screaming “our bests interests” (LOL!) or the latest canard “Terrorism!” – then, there should be no problem. Please notice how the Russians refrained from arming the Taliban in Afghanistan or “Al Qaeda” in the rest of the Middle East so they could fight the invasion of the USan imperial forces. In other words, LIVE AND LET DIE! What’s good for the goose should be good for the gander.

    obviously, it’s time for an emergency Obama Meeting – a crowd of Obama cell phone recipients (the ones who haven’t sold them off for drugs) singing “Kumbayah, my mullah, Kumbayah” with Barry’s Muslim Brotherhood staff looking on approvingly. The Traitor-Fraud will open that hole in his face and out will come the weasel-sewage that will mark America’s end as the world’s premier power. All the rest will follow shortly – the Fed scam will move to Asia, the foreign troops inside this country will be unleashed upon a starving and disconnected populace, etc. Putin will have a cowering and no-longer-pompous EU at his fingertips. China, having snaked away most of the world’s gold, will be the embodiment of that old adage, “He who has the gold makes the rules”. There’s some disconnect in this picture, admittedly – what about the BRIC nations, China-Russia rivalry, etc…….but the banksters won’t let that go on for long. A new world order will emerge quickly, but that’s the stuff of a longer posting.

  29. Daniel H Benson March 2, 2014 at 11:11 am

    A senior Navy officer and friend of mine who is in cy-ops will be deployed next month for a year, in the middle east. I asked if this was about Ukraine, he smiled and said it’s about the oil, everything is about the oil and don’t forget that.

    It’s not who owns the most stuff wins in the end, it’s he who controls the most buying and selling of all that stuff who wins. The #1 thing that needs to be controlled is OIL, along with natural gas and key trace mineral for our modern world!
    Oil is the real world currency! All these wars over the last few decades has been about the control of the oil and trace minerals, not just the stuff itself but the flow of it, and the buying, the selling and most of the price (profit) thereof;

    The Iraq wars (2) were the Bush families desire to control not just the oil in Iraq but the key oil pipe lines! Thus making the Bush family more wealthy! ( If i can control the flow of oil and trace minerals, I can control it’s market price).

    Afghanistan wars(Russia & USA) were over the control of that counties vast trace mineral (second only to Russia) and huge natural gas reserves.Why? so I can control it’s price on the open market!

    We deposed Leaders in Egypt and Libya because we were going to lose control(of profits) of the sale and distribution of their oil.

    Syria; is war over control of that countries 2.5 billion barrels of oil and key pipelines and huge natural gas deposits, Russia or USA and EU. Again Syria strategically and economically for Russia is very key, indispensable.

    Ukraine; Crimea used to be part of the old USSR until 1954, and now Russia wants it back because Russia’s oil and natural gas pipe lines to the west go through Ukraine and Russia has accused Ukraine along with Belarus of cheating on oil and gas revenues. This is just payback and if we were Russia we would do the exact same thing.
    Future War;
    Israel; With the resent natural gas and oil discoveries in Israel, in the sea, West Bank and Gaza Strip, where one estimate now is that there is more oil in Israel than all the middle east, will be a formula for what really starts WW III and the Gog-Magog war.
    Emboldened by it’s success to control oil and natural gas Russia under the guise of liberating the Palestinians from the Jews, will invade Israel to hand the land to the Arabs world thus control most of the world’s oil and natural gas! And we all should know what the Bible has to say about that and the real beginning of the end time events.

  32. Pesky Varmint March 2, 2014 at 11:18 am

    My theory:

    Obama is following a script, although he is not totally aware of it. He
    is just a pawn, a puppet, and not totally cognizant of that fact.

    Putin knows about the script and what it is. And the script is designed
    to back him against the wall in such a way that this war is both inevitable
    and designed such that Russia and Putin will seem to be the blame for it.
    I believe Putin would take any action possible to prevent death and war,
    but the script is inevitable.

    It’s entirely possible that Obama and the US will prove irrelevant, the
    remainder of NATO will be in the drivers seat.

    The Pelosi maxim rules mankind. We had to pass the ACA to see what’s in it. We had to elect Obama to see what he’d do. We have to fight WWIII to see what the outcome will be. Who will prevail? Energy drives wars, Putin can turn off the gas, next question please?

    Americans lost their lives vainly fighting communism in Korea. Then some 60,000 American soldiers lost the war against communism in Vietnam. Americans will lose the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, Iran and Ukraine because, as was the case in earlier wars, the “enemy” is at home and has no place to go. Americans are far from home with 8,000 mile supply lines. But what difference does losing foreign wars make when we’ve already fallen to communism here at home? Why would any sane American think he has a dog in the Ukrainian fight?

    I don’t recall the U.S. Constitution saying anything about bringing liberty to Ukraine.

    The problem has never been bad leaders. The problem is that people think they need leaders in the first place. The business model of every government on Earth is, as it has always been, predicated on theft. Governments per se are crime syndicates. As long as the people are fooled into thinking the struggle is between red and blue, left and right, liberal and conservative, light skins and dark skins, young and old, Christians and Muslims, straights and gays, or men and women, nothing will ever change for the better. The ONLY war that matters, my friends, is the war between the people on Earth and their bankster-controlled governments. Are Obama and Putin colluding? After the coming war, whether they were or weren’t will make no discernible difference to the well-being of Ukrainians.

    A message to all Homo sapiens: Government is not your friend.

    Thanks for your comments Dave regarding Joel Skousen’s view. I’ve only realized in the past 6 years that I had been living in a spiritual matrix as far as world events are concerned. And after 40 years of drinking fluoridated water it is a wonder I have as much awareness as I do now. I’m no exegete of history or world events though. I’ve had my doubts about at least some of Skousen’s theory. It involves Russia and China nuking the U.S. Well, since the 3 main forces on earth are those 2 nations and the U.S. that isn’t a stretch. It also appears the U.S. is deliberately weakening it’s own military…destroying it actually to make the U.S. vulnerable. Not even to mention the constant medling and antagonizing of those 2 nations. I mean, nobody in their right mind can expect Russia will allow Nato right on it’s doorstep in Ukraine. Also the idea the final catalyst will be the U.S. nuking North Korea. Maybe. Maybe not. I would understand the world chess master, evil controllers are more objective oriented than individual event oriented. If they cannot get what they want one way, no problem. They have half a dozen or more things to get them where they want to take us. Another of his views is that Russia and China won’t be ready until at least 2020. Although he now often softens that statement with things like ‘a moment of opportunity could cause the attack sooner’. Yeah well, I would expect sooner rather than later. Did Russian military might evaporate after the cold war ended? I recall watching Reagan’s funeral where Gorbychev was interviewed. He said the problem was not that they couldn’t match the U.S. in weapons. The problem was they couldn’t supply the people with toothpaste and toilet paper.
    Having said all that I now return to my original posture: full alert. Eyes open.

    This is a staged event….it is becoming increasingly difficult to know where reality stops and theatre begins.

    Since 2012 I have read where Russia let us use one of their airbases…we are/were allowing Spetznaz forces train on our soil…we have signed a joint declaration with Russia last year allowing them to send thousands of troops for “crowd control, etc” during a “national emergency.” Does this sound like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s ready to shoot it out? No, we spent 5 Bil to start this revolution and we have given Putin a pretext on a silver platter to invade…without the pretext he would look foolish and belligerent. The question now remains as to whether we back up our 1994 treat/accord with Ukraine or if we tuck tail like we did in North Korea and Syria last year.

    No, there will be no nuclear war….maybe one or two nukes will go off here or there, but the “genie will not be let out of the bottle,” not until just before the very end of the world.

    I agree with many who realize that Obama and others working with the banks spent a lot of money getting this Ukraine early spring going. My question is how can Russia have so many troops in this country yet give the pretense that he wants a fight with us, or our Govt giving the pretense of getting into a fight with Russia. This makes no sense. It also gives credibility to the strong possibility that this all theater.

    Economic collapse, WW3, Russian/Chinese invasion USA. Worst of all the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord. In the words of Matt Drudge, Have An Exit Plan. Be prepared to evacuate major US cities. Plan to fight and be prepared to stay mobile. Food, fuel, guns, ammo, gold, silver and lots of water. All that and pray, pray a lot. God Bless.

  42. Bob March 2, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    Do you understand anything about the coup engineered against a democratically elected government whose only crime apparently is that it sided with Russia, rejecting an EU-IMF plan for the Ukraine which would have driven it deeper into debt? Apparently not. Putin’s reaction to the Ukraine Spring should have been obvious enough. Neo-Nazi thugs overthrew Viktor Yanukovich’s government and installed a western banker-approved prime minister chosen from the bankster ranks. Shades of Greece and Italy just two years ago. Remember? Who do you think instigated this violence anyway? Who else but the people who used these same methods in Libya, Egypt and Syria. Do you really think Putin is going to allow these fascists to threaten Russia, by wrecking the Russian economy and later installing NATO troops and missiles along Russia’s border? Where do you get your ideas, Hodges? The Crimea is not Czechoslovakia. The provocation for this conflict arises in the western camp, not Russia’s.

    Another great article!

    This looks to me to be another cover Wall Street/City of London and their political stooges desperately need to hide their corrupt practices and high financial crimes.

    They will NOT BE BLAMED for imploding the financial system, come what may.

    They need a total reset and this, for them, is the perfect way to bring this about.

    The financial Ponzi Scheme of a lifetime may be ending, but you can bet your bottom dollar that a new, shinier and more sinister one will take its place.

    At the same time, GOING TO WAR is merely a tried and true formula for redrawing borders whilst making shitloads of money.

    We are dealing with madmen who have ruled this planet from the days of Sumer and Babylon; and therefore, those who are not part of the system, those who dare thumb their noses at monetizing debt, either partially of fully, are those whose days are numbered.

    Whether it takes 10, 100, or 1000 years, history tells us that it eventually must happen. As suggested, those who control the money supply ultimately control the world.

  45. Jack March 2, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    Dave, I love your writings…normally but, with respect to Ukraine, I think you’re better off leaving analysis to those in the know such as Paul Craig Roberts or, even, me. Having extensive experience in Ukraine with less in Russia, I can guarantee you that Crimea’s population is overwhelmingly in support of the Russians assistance in defending against the Neo Nazi thugs who took the US’s best laid plans and shoved them up America’s ass! Why are you taking issue with Putin’s desire to assist those asking for his help, especially after the US/EU were the major cause of the chaos? I was “active” during the Orange Revolution and I knew immediately the US and its alphabet soup agencies were stirring the pot in Kiev as they do everywhere. Whether it’s destabilization of false flags, the formula changes very little yet, dumb ass Americans buy the same bullshit time and time again. How many times does the US have to get caught lying about its motives which result in the slaughter of hundreds of thousands, or millions, of innocent civilians while enriching the military-industrial-banker complex at Americans’ expense, before Americans figure out they’re not in on the fix? America has become the most hated nation on Earth and only barely ahead of the terror state of Israel, due to never ending lies, rampant hypocrisy, human rights violations and unending, criminal wars! The EU/US/Israel axis of evil has NOTHING to offer Ukraine except lies, plunder of Ukraine’s natural resources and USING Ukraine as a NATO base of operations to further antagonize the Russians…EXACTLY as was the case with Latvia and Lithuania after the USSR agreed to allow the separate Republics to peacefully seek independence. The US/USSR entered a treaty to this effect but, despite the treaty to the contrary the US violated the terms…as always! Americans would have a cardiac arrest if the shoe was on the other foot but, Americans are also a nation of stupid hypocrites and their abject lack of interest in understanding world events will soon become the paramount reason for their enslavement. AMERICA; Home of the Stupid and Land of the Hypocrite. Get it through your head, America…NO FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS! You are correct about one thing; Putin holds Obama in contempt; having zero respect for his intelligence and ethics and it’s very well deserved.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: YOU ARE ARGUING A NON ISSUE- NOBODY SAID THAT CRIMEA ISN’T PRIMARILY RUSSIAN SPEAKING IT IS- BUT IT IS THE SOVEREIGN TERRITORY OF THE UKRAINE- RUSSIA COMMITTED AN ACT OF WAR AGAINST UKRAINE- YOU MISSED THE POINT ON THIS ONE- ALSO, CHECK OUT THE LINKS. EVERYTHING WAS WELL-DOCUMENTED-

  46. Frank Brady March 2, 2014 at 6:11 pm

    The hypocrisy of the U.S. government and its propaganda organs is astonishing.

    The usual suspects are ranting that the U.S. should “do something” about the “invasion” of the Ukraine. Indeed, the U.S. should “do something” about this situation. For starters, it should revoke the National Endowment for Democracy’s charter, put an end to any funding for it, and permanently halt U.S. meddling in the foreign affairs of other nations under the NED’s so-called “NGO” cover. Since its formation in 1983, NED has been directly involved in the overthrow and attempted overthrow of governments in Serbia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iran and, most recently, the Ukraine (this is the second time around for the Ukraine).

    The U.S. should pull the passport of the execrable John McCain who serves as “President” of the “International Republican Institute” (an NED adjunct)) and charge him with complicity in the deaths of the many people who have died over the years as a result of this cockroach’s subversive and vile interference in the internal affairs of other foreign nations. This criminal went to Kiev on December 13 to help personally light the fires of violence there.

    Don’t believe the propaganda.

  47. Snake March 2, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    As for me I am in the Army of peace…that is until I see my constitutional rights and the rights of those I care care about being seriously jeopardized and trampled upon. If the forces of evil really want to push things they can expect an enormous push back….they can figure out for themselves how this will go down. I am working on some skills with my bow and arrows. It would be fun to go old school on some aholes.

    THE KINGDOM’S EARTHLY PHASE VISIBLE 2

    Hi Everybody,

    Heb. 2: 3 also shows that the opportunity to be of the heavenly, invisible kingdom was closed until Jesus’ First Advent, and therefore that none of the Ancient Worthies could be of it: “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him. “The so–great salvation is the high calling. Those who neglect it are those who, after being called to it, fail to live according to it, fail to keep their consecration vows, to be dead to self and the world and alive to God, fail to exalt God in His perfect wisdom, justice, love and power among men. This great salvation was at the first begun to be spoken by Jesus at His First Advent. He was the first one that brought the knowledge of the high calling to the mind of anyone.
    This He did, primarily, to the twelve Apostles, and, secondarily, to those who followed Him–500 of whom continued to do so unto the end of His ministry, and who, during the resurrection period, were more or less convinced of His resurrection from the dead. This salvation has been confirmed, proven to be true, to God’s people, the Little Flock, by them that heard Him, i.e., primarily, by the twelve Apostles; and throughout the whole Gospel Age this confirmation has been going on by the star members and their special helpers and those who looked upon them as their teachers; these confirmed it by their word of mouth, by their testimony, by their life and by their teachings. they proved that this great salvation was a reality; and those who believed the message, obeyed it and proved faithful to the end, were rewarded with a place in the glorious invisible heavenly kingdom. Thus this text also proves that none of the Ancient Worthies could attain to this phase of the kingdom; it indicates rather that the Worthies will be of the earthly, visible phase of the kingdom.

    According to the Club of Rome document as reported by The Cutting Edge website, the world is to be divided up into 10 areas or kingdoms. Russia and a few East European nations constitute one of the 10 kingdoms. Therefore it is difficult for me to believe that Russia/Putin is not part of the game plan and that the Ukraine drama is not just some subscene of the one world government opera.

    Demand that your Congressional Representative impeach Obama or resign from office if they are unable to uphold their Oath of Office. Impeachment of the entire Obama Administration over this, in addition to all the other violations by this nation, under the watch of
    Obama.

    Tell them to not impeach Obama is racist, for to not call for impeachment as it is absolutely warranted and imperative, would be to continue to treat Obama as the “boy” puppet of the financial oligarchy that he is. To be a man he must face his crimes.

    In calling your Congressman and demanding them to either impeach or resign, then you are demonstrating what is real, and what is real is principle, the principles of this nation that they swore an Oath to uphold. As such impeachment is not about politics it is about principle.

    Make the call everyday, to challenge these cowards, as you ask others to do the same.

    When I hear of Russian troops deploying I think back when they were at the Marine corps base in yermo, ca. Their t80 y were on rail cars waiting to be off loaded. The U.S. troops wanted to put ramps on the rail cars to drive the t80y off the rail car but the Russian troops climbed aboard their tanks and full throttle drove off the rail cars with no ramps. The Russian troops at least there were very radical intense and a bit on the crazy side. They continued full throttle driving about the base. They would full throttle over the hills and fire while in the air. It was wild to see. This went on for about a week. Side note I keep trying to figure out why German jets are in a fedex leased hanger. I am standing their watching them work on it. I started a conversation with soneone and he told me they were working on a secret squirrel project and commenced to telling me about the non existant military stationed at the so. cal. logistics airport which I knew as they stay out of sight except mine and the military flying in and out. He was telling me more about the project when some goof ball interupted which ended the conversation. Seems it is a miss. defense syst.but I can’t figure out what it has to do with all that is going on around us. Oh well I will keep digging.

    The Neo-Cons (aka Trotskyites) are all for butting into the affairs of sovereign nations, where they do NOT belong. We have very serious problems right here at home to deal with – such as, crumbling physical infrastructure nationwide; high unemployment; homelessness; starvation; expensive and inefficient healthcare, leading to declining longevity; and declining education, etc.

    My solution would be to expel every Trotskyite and replace this evil gov’t with the former Constitutional Republic, as this nation’s Founders had envisioned; also, secure our border with Mexico and deport all illegal aliens. Before 1913 and the establishment of a private, foreign-owned (Rothschilds of London) central bank, the US was a very prosperous nation with NO unsustainable debts. Money was coined in the mints according to the Constitution and was backed by both gold and silver; and revenues were raised through tariffs and taxes, exempting those on wages and pensions; otherwise, known as the fruits of one’s labor. We must return to the Rule of Law under the Constitution; no excuses.

  54. Mark March 3, 2014 at 12:32 am

    Bro Dave,

    It’s all “political theatrics” and / or staging. The globalists/Illuminati are covering up the underlying situation to draw attention away from what is going to pound everybody’s wallet. . . . . .http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=98129828

    Those who haven’t invested in hard assets like gold and silver or other items deemed valuable. . .are going to see significant challenges to their personal wealth. It’s not like the warning hasn’t be put on this board for months on end. Well, the initiation of the finale to the death of the dollar is underway. Currency wars lead to trade wars, and then hot wars as Gerald Celente would say. I must confess, he is pretty much on target with his assessment.

    This is all playing out in accordance to a giant game plan as orchestrated by the illuminists. Here’s the deal. . .Russia and China don’t play the game in accordance with the same boogey man. Their “spiritual domain” needs to be taken into consideration in this three tiered game of chess. Is somebody going to “drop the bomb” and blame the economical collapse on war? I’m going to leave it at that, for now. People can figure out geopolitical games if they just give it a day or two of real thinking.

    We’re actually already in WWIII and have been for quite some time. It’s just the major opponents have been sitting back and watching the US drone everyone they think they can drone at their own free will. They’ve watched as the US Govt. flagrantly lies about unemployment figures and creates money out of thin air to fortify their agenda towards a NWO. Banking systems gone awry, for sure.

    The US has bought themselves into a hot corner. They can’t turn back, but they can turn in on themselves. Which means, civil unrest and/or civil war. Guerilla war? Perhaps. If the intended purpose would be to circumvent military action overseas the apes better awaken. Otherwise, our nation will find itself in total chaos. We’ll have domestic warfare as well as accelerating foreign concerns. That, my friends ~ is a self destruct button.

    God be with us all ~

    Peace,

    Mark

  63. Robert March 4, 2014 at 9:04 am

    In the interest of adding some perspective let’s ask a few simple questions.
    Victoria Nuland and the ambassador discussing the new leader of Ukraine was picked up on an intercepted call. First of all – who intercepted this call? Surely the NSA didn’t leak the contents of that call so that means…oh gasp other countries’ agencies are intercepting calls too? Yes – probably the Russian FSB or the Chinese. Americans need to not be naiive about surveillance. Surveillance is par for the course in the world we now live in. It doesn’t mean that it is good. It just means that it is a constant and we shouldn’t think only the US and the evil NSA does it.
    Secondly, this “new USA puppet” is bad but Yankovich the Russian puppet was good because…because why again?
    Thirdly, the war by the west is the evil bankers. yep agreed 100%. They bankers have had their hand in every war for at least the past 300-400 years and probably much longer. Carol Quigley documented much of it in his book Tragedy and Hope. The boo Creature from Jekyll Island also documents of a good deal of this. So how does the evil bankers make it only a problem of the “west” and the US? They don’t have bankers in Russia?

  64. W Palmer March 5, 2014 at 5:55 am

    While I am no Obama fan, he is really nothing more than a puppet. Keep in mind, he did free up all that oil in Libya that was originally state owned and funding countless public programs there.
