The US Game of 'Sanctions & Isolation' in the Hall of Mirrors

A few days ago, Pepe Escobar published a scathing piece at RT on Obama's $1b splash over Europe. I'll quote from it extensively-

. . . . “Stupid s**t though, doesn’t even begin to describe Obama’s first act after announcing the doctrine last week at West Point. For those who don’t get the message, one picture is enough to tell the whole story; Obama and the Polish president in front of an F-16 exhibition at a military airport near Warsaw.

(Straighten up and fly right, grunts) Ed.

Stupid s**t also irretrievably takes a backseat to serious s**t during Obama’s current European tour. We just need to examine what’s in store at the selected pit stops.
First is Warsaw – whose nervous poodle, US vassal government is absolutely hysterical over an imminent Russian “threat.” Then it’s the G7 in Brussels – the “ex-G8,” from which Russia was expelled by the self-proclaimed “great powers.” One of the items in the agenda is the possibility of slapping even more sanctions over Moscow’s “threat” to the Ukraine.
And then there are the ceremonies over the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings. It was the Soviet Union that essentially defeated Nazi Germany; the “West” only finished the job. Stalin’s generals should have easily entered Berlin; they didn’t because Stalin was afraid of ruffling Allied feathers at Yalta (and then the whole post-war scenario would have been a completely different story).
Check it out: the whole, fascinating process becomes quite visible by mixing Vojtech Mastny’s “Russia’s Road to the Cold War. Diplomacy, Warfare and the Politics of Communism, 1941-1945,” with Vladislav Zubok’s and Constantine Pleshakov’s “Inside the Kremlin’s Cold War.”
Now a serious World War II event like the Normandy landings has been marred by – what else – stupid s**t.
Because Barack the First simply cannot be in the same room with Vladimir Putin – as he would have no teleprompter to guide him – French President Francois Hollande must host two dinners in a row on Thursday. This was essentially leaked to American media by one of Obama’s foreign policy advisers, the astounding mediocrity Ben Rhodes.
And the most startling absurdity is that all this is taking place with the background of a Kiev-conducted, Washington-enabled “anti-terrorist operation” – for instance in Lugansk – where civilian “collateral damage” is being framed as the culprit. Neo-Nazis are positively gloating – in their graves or in their contemporary balaclavas. “

Crazy stuff, no?

A Little History On The Purveyors Of Death

Two offerings from the net looking into the history of death squads deployed around the world and their sponsors, the ultimate purveyors of death, the international anglo/zionist regime.

The first is a net interview with Dan Welch (h/t McJ). I first saw him on an RT Crosstalk show and was struck by his logic, his grasp of historical facts and how to use them. He also has an engaging manner that communicates the absurdity of the talk of the psychopaths in power and those that carry water for them.

Dan clearly identifies the perps in power as psychopaths. He talks about the genesis of the death squads in Latin America and how they were trained by the US at places like The School of the Americas. He points out that Al Qaeda and affiliated jihadist groups in Syria and elsewhere are in fact the continuation of the death squads trained by the US and deployed in Latin and South America in decades gone by. Same same in every way.

One point especially pleased me, I must say. I have been saying for some time that the factor that stopped the military bombardment of Syria was the Russian Navy's downing of the two missiles fired at Damascus by the US Navy. Dan Welch makes a point of this and is the only media commentator that I have come across who calls it and emphasises the point that the only thing these psychopaths respond to is a credible military deterent. All the nonsense about Obama being reasonable or facing a potential revolt from Congress etc is just that; nonsense. Psychopaths cannot be reasoned with. There is no conscience, no compassion and no ultruism there to appeal to. They only know what they want and only think about how to get it.

It is an excellent interview. It links a lot of things together historically and covers a lot of ground including that the US will fail in Ukraine whether it takes 6 months or 6 years. He also maintains that the US already knows this but is now intent on causing as much harm and destruction as it can (Plan B) just as it is doing in Syria.

Ukraine: it's a Gas, Gas, Gas

Below is a short video from RT's Katie Pilbeam talking about Ukraine's non-payment of its gas bill and the twists and turns going on and the likely twists to come.

It is appropriately named, "The Check's In The Mail" and with all that implies!


Ukraine, at the very last minute, says the cheque's in the mail. Russia says the money hasn't arrived and the Ukrainians tell the Europeans that the money was sent to New York but will arrive in due course.

What's wrong with this picture? As the RT title for the piece implies, the Ukrainians are telling lies. We know they are liars and thieves. We also know the New York bankers are liars and thieves. You'll remember that the first thing to happen after the junta seized power was to fly Ukraine's central bank's gold out of the country to New York. Then Ukraines foreign currency reserves disappeared. Then Ukraine immediately stopped paying anything for their gas from Russia. But I'm sure the (illegal) Ukrainian govt was still charging and collecting for the gas they were supplying to Ukrainian citizens and businesses. Why doesn't somebody ask, "Where has that revenue gone to?" To New York? Very likely in my view.

So what's going on with this 'cheques in the mail' bullshit?

Our Psychopathic Rulers

Below is an extremely good article on psychopaths in government and the military. The author makes many sharp observations regarding psychopaths which we would do well to remember. Here is an example-

"Psychopaths are in love with power and risk taking, masters of manipulation, self-serving opportunism and self-aggrandizement, and hold doctorates in deceit and deception. Psychopaths are super intelligent charmers who are highly skilled at playing others in order to get what they want. They are keenly perceptive at reading people, understanding their motives and values, brilliant at learning their weaknesses and blind spots, and highly effective at inducing both sympathy and guilt in others."

All this is true although I would question his use of the term "super intelligent". They may appear so but they are not super intelligent. Psychopaths as a group exhibit the same range of intelligence as the wider public. If anything, they are a little below the average. However, they do think differently from the rest of us and that puts us at a distinct disadvantage.

Their ability to outmanoeuver us comes from a lack of something in them rather than the addition of something. They lack a conscience and therefore are uninhibited in doing harm to others. They have no empathy for others and cannot experience the emotions we would normally associate with being human. Psychopaths are accutely aware of this lack within themselves though they do not perceive it as a loss, as such. But they do know that they have to hide this lack from others. They do this by learning at a very early age to observe and mimic normal people in their emotional reactions. This course of study of normal people makes them keen observers of human behaviour and accutely aware of how to manipulate others. They become masters of manipulation through this compensatory behaviour to survive and then to thrive.

It is much like a deaf person who learns to become more attentive with their vision to pick up on the emotional cues that are normally perceived through hearing but unavailable to them as a deaf person. I do not in any way want to equate a deaf person with a psychopath but rather to demonstrate how a compensatory skill develops. It comes through necessity and practise and not intelligence pre se.

So with that one proviso, I highly recommend this article by Joachim Hagopian. It was first published by GlobalResearch and pick up by Signs of the Times from whence I borrowed the graphic above.

“Masters of Manipulation”: Psychopaths Rule The World
A Case Study of Obama and Petraeus

By Joachim Hagopian
Global Research, May 24, 2014

Psychopaths dominate the halls of power in both the United States and throughout the world. The current economic, political, military and legal system breeds psychopaths, rewarding psychopathic behavior and punishing those with conscience and integrity. Psychopaths will naturally be drawn to and converge at the apex of the power pyramid as much from their own drive for ambitious power as the hierarchical system that both requires and reinforces those who can comfortably operate without conscience, guilt or any genuine level of empathy toward others.

Psychopaths are in love with power and risk taking, masters of manipulation, self-serving opportunism and self-aggrandizement, and hold doctorates in deceit and deception. Psychopaths are super intelligent charmers who are highly skilled at playing others in order to get what they want. They are keenly perceptive at reading people, understanding their motives and values, brilliant at learning their weaknesses and blind spots, and highly effective at inducing both sympathy and guilt in others.

Instinctively knowing what others want to hear, psychopaths are gifted at winning over others, making them feel special and wanted. They are adept at making positive and lasting first impressions and initially demonstrating that they appear to be caring and considerate, but only on the most superficial, disingenuous level. Their innately keen intelligence, social charisma and charm, extroverted energies, over-the-top confidence are all weapons they utilize in their powerful arsenal to win over, defeat and control others, especially to win over those imbued with power and position that they yearn for themselves.

False Flags and Psychopaths

Below is an episode of TruthSeeker from RT. It focuses on 'False Flag Operations' and their use in starting wars. Wars are indicative of psychopathic activity. Normal people may fight but they do not kill their neighbours and their families to steal their possessions. That's what wars are about and only psychopaths perpetrate them.

To be successful in starting and continuing a war, psychopaths use fear and promise rewards for normal people. They have to lie to us because normal people will not engage in war left to their own devices. Hence, the necessity of false flag ops. They are massive lies whereby the power elite attack their own citizens and blame their actions and the resulting calamity on the hapless country they wish to invade and pillage. Only psychopaths are capable of this behaviour.


Dr. Kevin Barrett, interviewed in the Truthseeker video above, suggests that we might have to screen our leaders for psychopathy. It is an eminently sensible suggestion and an entirely necessary change if we are going to survive as a species. There is, in fact, a very reliable neurological test for psychopathy. So should a government ever come into being that is not psychopathic, it would be in their interests and the interests of the whole population to institute psychopathic testing.

The Bankers Have Truly Lost Their Minds and Gone On Tilt!

Poking a Siberian Tiger through the bars of a cage is stupid enough. But what do you say about someone who does it without a cage?

Check this comment out at Saker's (there's other very interesting info in Truthsearcher's comment there) -

TruthSearcher said...

Today there was a worrisome incident with Deputy Prime Minister of Russia - Dmitri Rogozin.
He visited Transdnistria, the pro-Russian enclave bordering Moldova and Ukraine, that has enjoyed de-facto independence from Moldova since the break-up of USSR.

He flew in through Romanian airspace to participate in festive events, related to the Victory Day and the address of local authorities regarding joining Russia. By the time he wanted to return, Romania, under marching orders from ... you know who, had closed its airspace for him.

Then his plane got the permission to fly over Ukraine, but shortly after they took off, Ukrainian fighters intercepted the flight and required him to either return to Chisinau, Moldova or be forced down on a Ukrainian airfield.

The flight returned to Chisinau and was surrounded by Moldova police forces. Seems it was also boarded. Only to find out, that Mr. Rogozin was not among the passengers of the plane. He had safely made it back to Moscow. In stealth mode, I might add.

As Rogozin put it on Twitter - https://twitter.com/DRogozin & pic.twitter.com/DHIQe2hg0z "But (Russian) Military-Industrial Commission has its own paths. And Kiev junta is left with nothing..." He also added "Now we're looking fwd to a visit of Romanian and Moldovan governmental delegations in Moscow."

Here's a video commentary is Russian http://www.vesti.ru/only_video.html?vid=597701. . . ..

Be sure to click on Dmitry Rogozin's twitter link in the comment above.

These hysterical bankers are so-ooo way out of their league it is truly funny.

Of course, the bankers are trying everything they can to provoke Russia into an attack on Ukraine - on anyone, in fact! But the more provocative the bankers are, the more they fall flat on their collective face. They are showing themselves to be absolutely lawless, mad and a total menace to everyone. This is driving them away from their captives/allies. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of bastards. The safest and most effective way to deal with a psychopath is to expose them (or better, allow them to expose themselves) and to then isolate them. It's coming!

Please see the preceding post for more insights into the psychotic bankers facing their own demise and the inevitable reckoning to come with their master (who truly has no mercy) laughing out loud

Voice of Russia article on the debacle-


Getting crazier-
"Moldova has seized thousands of petitions from the citizens of Transnistria seeking “reunification with Russia” from a Russian delegation’s plane, as politicians had a hard time leaving the breakaway state with all neighboring airspaces closed for them.

“Moldovan secret services on-board our plane are confiscating boxes with Transdniestrians’ signatures for reunification with Russia,” Russian Deputy PM Dmitry Rogozin tweeted. "
