Ken's Blog: Propaganda versus Reality in the globalist takeover of Ukraine

Behold the Wicked Witch of the West AND East...

It was very heartening to see Brandon Smith's article yesterday. Up to that point, I had felt like a lone voice against an army of mainstream media and faux-truther propagandists, and it was starting to get me down. Now that I know I'm not the only one who sees (and is willing to write about) what's really going on, I can proceed with more of a spring in my step. And I think I'll continue moving forward by addressing a key propaganda point in Jim Willie's recent article, which is prototypical of faux-truther spin on the Ukraine subject.

In his article, Jim paints the conflict between West and East as genuine, and again makes no reference at all to the globalists and their hand in orchestrating the drama. He only references "Anglo-American leadership, guided by the steady corrupt banker hands," and seems oblivious to the fact that the entire G20 (which includes Russia and its BRICS allies) is infested by central banksters, and that they are all working together both on Ukraine and on consolidating the currencies of the world into a new global currency system. The only reference he makes to the globalists or their organizations is one mention of the IMF when he says this...

"Neither Russia nor China will cooperate on the IMF super sovereign reformed currency basket at this point, not during extreme hostility and conflict."

He couldn't be more wrong. According to a March 4 article by Reuters titled Putin says intends to work with IMF on Ukraine aid, Putin is withholding Russian aid to the Ukraine at the request of his "Western partners"...

>>>"In principle, we would be ready to consider further steps to release more tranches ... but our Western partners are asking us not to do this," Putin told a news conference in his first public comments on Ukraine in over a week.

"They are asking us to work together in the framework of the IMF in order to persuade the government of Ukraine, the Ukrainian authorities, to conduct reforms needed to revive the economy," he said. "We intend to keep working in this channel."

In other words, he is holding back money so Ukraine will be forced to turn to the IMF if they want a bailout.

I also remind you of comments from the Russian finance minister I featured in Update 5 of this article. The quotes come from this Voice of Russia article and were made by the minister on 2/23, the day after the Ukrainian government fell...

>>>Russia has upheld the requirements that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has demanded from the crisis-ridden Ukraine. This is according to Russia’s Finance Minister Anton Siluanov. He said the group of 20 finance ministers had met on the sidelines of their economic forum to discuss opportunities of IMF granting Ukraine loans.

Siluanov said that Russia had agreed with demands that came together with cash injections.“We have previously talked with Ukraine’s economic authorities about the importance of reforming the [national currency] Hrivna rates to make them more flexible, as well as about cutting subsidies, revitalizing the budget and changing domestic [gas] tariffs,” the minister said...

Siluanov also spoke favorable about the work of the IMF, saying Russia supported its policies. “The fund has a lot of experience helping countries that have problems with their budget and balance sheet. They have an entire toolkit at their disposal for this sort of occasions, and of course their experience will come in handy when dealing with Ukraine,” the Russian finance chief concluded.

So as you can see, the Russians are fully cooperating with the Washington, DC-based IMF in pressuring Ukraine into accepting both the IMF aid package and the brutal IMF "reforms."

In fact, not only are the Russians cooperating with the IMF on Ukraine, but they and the Chinese are also making the IMF-required changes to their own currencies. As Siluanov mentioned, the IMF wants Ukraine to abandon its dollar currency peg (which has already been done) and other currency interventions and embrace flexible exchange rates (to allow easier manipulation of currencies by a global central authority), and both the Russians and Chinese are implementing this IMF policy for the ruble and yuan.

When addressing recent ruble volatility in this ITAR-TASS article...

>>>Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov tried to calm down the public. “There are no problems,” he said. “The idea is to make the ruble rate flexible so that there would be no artificial control like before.”

One of the reasons why the ruble weakened is a change in the policy of the Russian Central Bank, which last year stopped carrying out targeted currency interventions aimed at supporting the national currency and sometimes extended the boundaries of the exchange rate band. In early 2015, the Central Bank plans to abandon all currency interventions, and the Russian economy will switch over to a flexible exchange rate.

And when addressing recent yuan volatility in this Reuters article...

"Recent movements in the exchange rate of China's yuan are normal, central bank vice governor Pan Gongsheng said on Thursday, reiterating comments by other officials after recent sharp moves in the currency.

Pan also said reform of China's exchange rate formation mechanism is an important part of the current financial reform, and the principle is to let the market play a bigger role and to increase flexibility of exchange rate."

So not only are the Russians and Chinese following the IMF's policies in lockstep, but initial moves towards revaluation seem to be in play (resulting in the value fluctuations).

Looking at all this can lead to only one logical conclusion...

In the Ukrainian situation,
IMF assimilation is the real agenda (of both "West" and "East"),
and military confrontation between "West" and "East" is the sideshow distraction.

So while the mainstream media and the controlled elements of the alternative media distract everyone with breathless croakings of war and doom, the "technocrats" in the West and East continue to beaver away at building the new globalist financial system. They even tell us what they're doing in the mainstream media, but no one wants to read such boring reports when they can read stories about military drama. We don't have long to snap them out of it.

And with that, I'll call it a day. If you haven't read my other entries on the Ukrainian situation, you can find them here.

I send you my love.
