Self-Determination? Trump Asks for Return of Crimea, Will the US Acknowledge the Far-Right Operating in Ukraine, Post-Coup?

By Ann Diener

With all of the fears surrounding Russia and espionage of Russia, are we blowing this whole issue out of proportion to ignore the real elephant in the room, fascism and a Far-Right agenda operating in Ukraine and elsewhere?

Today “President Trump has made it very clear that he expects the Russian government to de-escalate violence in the Ukraine and return Crimea,” said White House Spokesman Sean Spicer at the daily news briefing. “At the same time, he fully expects to and wants to get along with Russia.”

With the ongoing media outcry yesterday over Michael Flynn’s contact with Russia and a hyped media Russian threat that went on all day yesterday, it is important to understand, what are we afraid of? Old, Cold War era KGB (now FSB) operatives controlling our government? To what extent would they control us, if they even could? Would they curtail free speech, freedom of assembly, revoke our constitutional rights, manipulate us to where corporations and elite “oligarchs” have more control than the people in a “free society?”

So what of the Russian threat to us? All of the above is already happening and has been moving towards these goals and objectives since the Bush Administration and 9/11/01.

With every Trump cabinet pick and ever executive order, the American people themselves are in more fear of being controlled by the Deep State. It is like a horror movie where the villains are put in charge.

Where else have we seen this?

Ukraine for one. Looking at what happened in Ukraine, the coup of the Viktor Yanukovych government, which to be fair was corrupt financially, as many developing countries are, still, the US paid $5 billion to sponsor basically a color revolution/coup so that corporate interests could potentially take the best, most industrial part of Ukraine, Eastern Ukraine. Victoria Nuland’s speech in December 2013 was an ominous warning of the path that would be taken towards this. Some of the people who were put in power after the coup were closely allied with the Far-Right, and quasi Neo-Nazis, members of the Right Sector, currently hold positions in the government of Western Ukraine, the side we supported.

At the time of the coup, Yanukovych was working on the best course for the country financially which had received loans from Russia and was also promised loans from the EU that were tied to austerity which could cost the Ukrainian people their sovereignty. It would have been nice for the West to work together with the East to create a balanced approach on Ukraine and enable their membership in both the Customs Union and the EU allowing the country to be a bridge between East and West, however the extremists won and division was created in Ukraine, as laws punishing Russian speakers spewed out of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s Parliament.
Crimea voted to become part of Russia out of fear of the Far-Right Nationalists. The minority Tartars did not agree, but with the majority of Crimeans 96.8 percent voted to declare independence from Ukraine and on March 17, 2014 formally applied to become part of Russia following the referendum, self-determination prevailed. Why is self-determination wrong when it leans towards Russia? Crimea was a part of Russia that was given to Ukraine in 1954. If the OSCE, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, would go to Crimea and interview the majority of people in Crimea, they would find that they indeed voted to be part of Russia out of fear, not of Russia, but out of fear of the Far-Right Nationalists in the government of Ukraine.

Again, why is self-determination wrong when it leans towards Russia? Why are we in the West so afraid? Why do we feel we can take over countries who lean towards Russia? Are we afraid of, the Bolsheviks that were fostered by Wall Street and enabled by President Woodrow Wilson?

Are we afraid of the old school KGB spying? What is their goal that we are afraid of? Is it totalitarianism and manipulation? Is that not what has been occurring in the US since 9/11/01, a move in the US towards totalitarianism against the backdrop of manufactured enemies, never facing the real creators of the enemies, never following the direct lines to identify the perpetrators. Wrong doing is being lied about, tolerated, allowed, condoned, accepted, validated and even honored at times as we set out to “fight” that same wrong doing. Thinking of terrorism, it is known by all to be an extension of Wahhabism, yet the country that has state sponsored Wahhabist mosques, Saudi Arabia, was given an award for fighting terrorism.

So back to Russia. What are we afraid of? Is it that we are attempting to create a unipolar world where we fear if Russia, China and even the EU are competitive with us, we will not be able to dominate the world and create villains and victors? Who is it that is creating a totalitarian system, one of a global scale, all encompassing leadership and having the right to control the narrative about anyone or anything, not allowing for discourse and diplomacy as well as a balanced approach seeing all sides and aiming to achieve balance? This view of superiority fits well with the Nationalistic side and the Far-Right agenda, and it is void of everything that has made America great.

Why is America violating its own ethics, laws and social mores to achieve this? Who are the players? What is hiding in the background, the Deep State?
Thinking about Nikki Haley’s words at the UN, chastising Russia in the UN for aggression in Ukraine, she and others conveniently overlook the Far-Right Nationalists operating there, which are the main issue of contention for those of Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, and are why they would ask Russia for support.
Is this administration a culmination of a long term plan towards a unipolar world based on Far-Right Nationalism used to control the masses into submission? That is pure fascism, if so. Why is Russia standing by, interests? Or, has their government been working towards a the same outcome supporting the back channels? Perhaps that is what we truly fear. We need to remember who was our ally in WWII. And then maybe think of the Nazis who came into the US after the war from Argentina and elsewhere.

Looking back at Ukraine, and adding in Syria, Russia’s fight against ISIS, our fears may be unfounded despite the rhetoric once we are willing to acknowledge what has been done to foment war for power and control of resources, including our tax payer dollars used to support at times illegal and fraudulently based wars such as Iraq and Libya.

The threat is not Russia, it is our inability to see what is right in front of us when we look in the mirror. For once, can our UN Ambassador acknowledge the damage done by the Far-Right Nationalists, the Right Sector, we partnered with in Ukraine? If this administration is really going to make peace with Russia, this needs to happen.

    Thank you for your comment Edward. The point you made is the point I made. The oligarchs, far-right and Bolsheviks are connected, and also if you get to the core of it, also connected are religion and the colonialist force that is behind the way people are taught to see themselves. It is not naïve the concept of freedom. Freedom is actually forward thinking. In an interconnected world where we have access to information that was never available before, it becomes easier to understand and communicate with one another to realize we are all unique, yes, but all human with the same basic needs. Since at least 325 AD the core basis of religion has been that man/woman are bad in nature and have committed sin by just being alive. This teaching as a very basis of though facilitates enslavement by masters who must “control” the people. Those same masters then use and manipulate the people for their financial, power and emotional gains. America itself was unique in its beginnings, yes we had slavery, but the basis of freedom was found here. That is why they have wanted to destroy it. The first lines of the Declaration of Independence did not say man is evil and must be controlled, rather quite the opposite. Over time the very basic freedoms been stolen and prevented from naturally expanding out as they had been. With the awareness of who is in the background we can find a way to advance beyond them.

    VACUUMS and CARPETBAGGERS

    The countries that emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, not only found it difficult to forget the nightmare of Russian occupation but find it disconcerting still to countenance the new and altogether benign regime under Putin. With that inherent and dominant antipathy towards Russia, a reluctant EU opened membership to them into their Globalist network. Even HIAS and the JDC were extricating large numbers of Jews through Ladispoli near Rome and Vienna as late as 1990.

    There is the idea – backed by a military build-up, of war clouds gathering over Eastern Europe which if the army in question was any other than the joke that is NATO, might be taken seriously. But the Zionists and globalists are nothing if feckless, impulsive adventurers working off the American tax-payer dime, who see as a vast territory (Russia) to be attacked and their huge tracts of lands consumed and exploited by carpet-bagger corporations. Events in Syria put a halt to the Zionist/Globalist gallop but they expect Trump to take them the extra furlong. Such dreams beget nightmares.

    So nature abhors a vacuum Ann and as the carpetbaggers roll into eastern Europe (Kiev) on foot of a coup, just as they did here in the US in droves after the Civil War you will find ‘the usual suspects’ pushing with all their might to finagle a war they are happy to finance for the 1%. Putin represents the 99%.

    Know who in history supported the far right NAZI movement all along and you know whom Trump really serves.

      Sorry for the duplicate reply. I usually comment on top.
