History repeats itself: Russia faces off with Nazis in Ukraine ( The U.S foreign Policy and war games of yesterday still at large)

With ultra-nationalism and anti-Jewish sentiment rife in Western Ukraine, it looks like history is repeating itself, this time with the West trying to pit Ukraine against Russia, just like it did back in the days when Nazism was on the rise in Germany.

In the 1930s, Third Reich was all the rage in Europe and overseas in the United States, with Anglo-American elites pinning their hopes on Hitler who they believed could end the Soviet menace. Russia was reviled and the Nazi Germany was not. In fact, US corporations and banks supported and financed the Nazis, while their officials and businesses respected the Nazi regime. Mackenzie King, the union-busting advisor of the Rockefeller family and tenth prime minister of Canada, even admired Hitler openly, as did Edward VIII, who abdicated from the British throne in favor of his brother. 

Photo: Meet The Pastor Who Ordered Female Members To Attend Church WITHOUT Underwear

The pastor looks really serious in this photo, we wonder what he was telling his congregation this time.  This is Rev. Njohi of the Lord's Propeller Redemption Church in Kenya who became popular for passing  a law which banned female members from wearing underwear to church service.  The ridiculous law makes one wonder if the well dressed pastor is wearing any underwear himself.

Ukraine: the West must own up to its mistakes

The West has only been painting the current crisis in Ukraine and Crimea in black-and-white, with Russia attacking and Ukraine’s coup-imposed regime on the defensive.  Western powers are depicted protecting a fledgling democracy with Russia vying to trample it to dust. Just how true is this picture? Malcolm Fraser, who served as Australia’s 22nd prime minister between 1975 and 1983, pointed to grave mistakes that Western powers have made again and again since the fall of the Soviet Union, because what is now happening in Crimea has grown directly from the short-sightedness of Cold-War-minded Western governments.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the general sentiment was one of exaltation as many people hoped that Cold-War ideology could finally be consigned to the past, while former rivals tried to build a better world. But these expectations didn’t last.

Ukraine: Western lies as truth, Russian truth as propaganda – Viselav Simic

The western propaganda and brainwashing of the population is so widespread and the populace so completely under control that even when presented with concrete undeniable facts that run counter to the official narrative the majority of people still refuse to believe.

 This has made it a literal information war when it comes to the situation in Ukraine and even the simple fact that there was never an “invasion” of Ukraine by Russia, something egregiously and erroneously reported by the western media, is almost impossible to counter. Russia has not now or ever “invaded” Ukraine or the Crimea, there has been a contingent of Russian troops supporting the Black Sea Fleet there for decades. That is the simple fact.

EU Parliament threatens to block US trade deal over mass spying

The European Parliament threatened Wednesday to block a landmark free trade deal between the European Union and the United States if Washington does not end its mass spying activities. Negotiators are meeting in Brussels this week for a fourth round of talks on the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP), which would create the world's largest free-trade area.

That "could be endangered as long as blanket mass surveillance activities and the interception of communications in EU institutions and diplomatic representations are not fully stopped," the parliament said in a report adopted in a 544-78 vote.
