THE PETE SANTILLI SHOW: WED. MARCH 5, 2014 – #647
In this episode Pete discusses what he calls a clear-cut case of the Ukraine crisis being a U.S. State Department led overthrow of a sovereign nation, as well as the USA being a willing and knowledgeable beneficiary of a false flag sniper attack designed to initiate war. The entire conflict is muddled by theatrical performances and propaganda by both the United States and Russia. Pete and his co-host Susannah Cole cover the recently exposed telephone call recording between EU representatives whereby they discuss and acknowledge evidence that the Maidan sniper fire was executed by the “new coalition”, and that the same bullets were forensically analyzed & determined to be the same type fired at both protestors and police. The E.U., USA and NATO have all blamed President Yanukovich for sniper fire and abuses upon the protestors.
Additionally, Pete & Susannah lay out the path to overthrow which Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland has been on for a long time. Recently in December 2013, she was caught speaking openly at a podium in front of a Chevron sponsored marketing banner; proudly proclaiming the USA had provided $5 billion in subversion funds, and that she personally met with Ukrainian President Yanukovich to threaten him with E.U. and IMF reforms.
Here’s Ms. Victoria Nuland again referring to the same E.U. she was trying to ram down Ukrainian President Yanukivich’s throat. Please note the entire context of the conversation with her U.S. State department minion Geoffrey Pyatt. Nuland’s discussion is essentially about overthrowing a sovereign nation and deciding who will be in power afterwards. They refer to “international personalities” such as UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and Secretary of State John Kerry to glue the deal as if they are merely pawns in her grand implementation scheme. Nuland clearly indicates who is in charge of the Ukraine overthrow — the U.S. State Department.
by Paul Craig Roberts Gerald Celente calls the Western media “presstitutes,” an ingenuous term that I often use. Presstitutes sell themselves to Washington for access and government sources and to keep their jobs. Ever since the corrupt Clinton regime permitted the concentration of the US media, there has been no journalistic independence in the United States except for some Internet sites. Glenn Greenwald points out the independence that RT, a Russian media organization, permits Abby Martin who denounced Russia’s alleged invasion of Ukraine, compared to the fates of Phil Donahue (MSNBC) and Peter Arnett (NBC), both of whom were fired for expressing opposition to the Bush regime’s illegal attack on Iraq. The fact that Donahue had NBC’s highest rated program did not give him journalistic independence. Anyone who speaks the truth in the American print or TV media or on NPR is immediately fired. Russia’s RT seems actually to believe and observe the values that Americans profess but do not honor. I agree with Greenwald. You can read his article here:http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article37842.htm Greenwald is entirely admirable. He has intelligence, integrity, and courage. He is one of the brave to whom my just published book, How America Was Lost, is dedicated. As for RT’s Abby Martin, I admire her and have been a guest on her program a number of times. My criticism of Greenwald and Martin has nothing to do with their integrity or their character. I doubt the claims that Abby Martin grandstanded on “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine” in order to boost her chances of moving into the more lucrative “mainstream media.” My point is quite different. Even Abby Martin and Greenwald, both of whom bring us much light, cannot fully escape Western propaganda. For example, Martin’s denunciation of Russia for “invading” Ukraine is based on Western propaganda that Russia sent 16,000 troops to occupy Crimea. The fact of the matter is that those 16,000 Russian troops have been in Crimea since the 1990s. Under the Russian-Ukrainian agreement, Russia has the right to base 25,000 troops in Crimea. Apparently, neither Abby Martin nor Glenn Greenwald, two intelligent and aware people, knew this fact. Washington’s propaganda is so pervasive that two of our best reporters were victimized by it. As I have written several times in my columns, Washington organized the coup in Ukraine in order to promote its world hegemony by capturing Ukraine for NATO and putting US missile bases on Russia’s border in order to degrade Russia’s nuclear deterrent and force Russia to accept Washington’s hegemony. Russia has done nothing but respond in a very low-key way to a major strategic threat orchestrated by Washington. It is not only Martin and Greenwald who have fallen under Washington’s propaganda. They are joined by Patrick J. Buchanan. Pat’s column calling on readers to “resist the war party on Crimea” opens with Washington’s propagandistic claim: “With Vladimir Putin’s dispatch of Russian Troops into Crimea.” http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article37847.htm No such dispatch has occurred. Putin has been granted authority by the Russian Duma to send troops to Ukraine, but Putin has stated publicly that sending troops would be a last resort to protect Crimean Russians from invasions by the ultra-nationalist neo-nazis who stole Washington’s coup and established themselves as the power in Kiev and western Ukraine. So, here we have three of the smartest and most independent journalists of our time, and all three are under the impression created by Western propaganda that Russia has invaded Ukraine. It appears that the power of Washington’s propaganda is so great that not even the best and most independent journalists can escape its influence. What chance does truth have when Abby Martin gets kudos from Glenn Greenwald for denouncing Russia for an alleged “invasion” that has not taken place, and when independent Pat Buchanan opens his column dissenting from the blame-Russia-crowd by accepting that an invasion has taken place? The entire story that the presstitutes have told about the Ukraine is a propaganda production. The presstitutes told us that the deposed president, Viktor Yanukovych, ordered snipers to shoot protesters. On the basis of these false reports, Washington’s stooges, who comprise the existing non-government in Kiev, have issued arrest orders for Yanukovych and intend for him to be tried in an international court. In an intercepted telephone call between EU foreign affairs minister Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister Urmas Paet who had just returned from Kiev, Paet reports: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.” Paet goes on to report that “all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides . . . and it’s really disturbing that now the new coalition, that they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened.” Ashton, absorbed with EU plans to guide reforms in Ukraine and to prepare the way for the IMF to gain control over economic policy, was not particularly pleased to hear Paet’s report that the killings were an orchestrated provocation. You can listen to the conversation between Paet and Ashton here: http://rt.com/news/ashton-maidan-snipers-estonia-946/ What has happened in Ukraine is that Washington plotted against and overthrew an elected legitimate government and then lost control to neo-nazis who are threatening the large Russian population in southern and eastern Ukraine, provinces that formerly were part of Russia. These threatened Russians have appealed for Russia’s help, and just like the Russians in South Ossetia, they will receive Russia’s help. The Obama regime and its presstitutes will continue to lie about everything.
The foreign minister of Etonia – after visiting Ukraine – told the EU foreign affairs chief that the NEW Ukranian government was behind the snipers who bumped off both protesters and Ukranian police. In other words, the Estonian minister is alleging that event which led to the overthrow of the old Ukranian regime was a false flag. We have no idea if the Estonian minister is right or not. American analyst and writer William Engdahl goes even further in his allegations. Specifically, Engdahl claims that intelligence sources tell him that NATO is behind the snipers, as part of a “Gladio” campaign of false flag destabilization. By way of background, the former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. The code name for this campaign was “Gladio”. As one participant in the formerly-secret Gladio program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security” (and see this)(Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special. FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds alleges that Gladio is continuing to this day. And Edmonds previously told Washington’s Blog:
For the past 11 years I have been emphasizing that my State Secrets Privilege & Gag Orders had to do with the FBI files (covering period 1996-2002 February) on covert-terrorist operations in Caucasus and Central Asia backed, managed and armed by US actors. These US-NATO directed operations in the region involved Bin-Laden and mainly Zawahiri ….. The FBI documents contained damning evidence (audio and written) collected between 1996-2002 tying these terror operations directly to the U.S. persons in the State Department/CIA and Pentagon. Also, how the State Department got Congress to grant huge amounts of funds to “front’ NGOs and businesses (mainly Turkish companies in US-listed/members of ATC) to funnel money to the terrorist cells in this region.
We don’t know whether Edmonds or Engdahl are right, either. But one thing is certain: the Ukranian situation is not as simple and one-sided as the American politicians and media would have you believe.
Pete welcomes to the show : Chief Shane Harger
Police Chief Shane Harger of the Jemez Springs, NM Police Department was flying out of Albuquerque Airport on his way to a Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) convention in Las Vegas but Before passing security, Harger was approached by a TSA agent who asked the police chief to show his credentials. Moments later, a man claiming to be a “federal agent” also asked to see Harger’s credentials and then told him he was a “person of interest.” The federal agent also demanded to know where Harger was traveling to and why.
When Harger told the federal agent he was attending the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association Convention, he was detained for 35 minutes before finally being allowed to board the airplane.
On Tuesday January 28, a day after his return, Harger was placed on administrative leave and ordered by Sandoval County, NM, Sheriff Douglas C. Wood to disband his entire police department due to his “political affiliations”.
Chief Harger joins Pete to give his listeners an update on his status.
