Maidan Massacre Documentary (video)

(Unfortunately, there was a lot left out of this documentary as is illustrated by the director’s own statement published below. Of course, there is the video of Oleg Tsarev saying in parliament that the protest itself was funded and started by the US due to Ukraine turning away from the EU to sign a trade deal with Russia while the bought-off opposition members in the room tried to shout him down. There was also an interview done with a “protester” who clearly states he was one of two snipers firing from the roof of the Conservatory building, controlled by the opposition at the time. He claims he wasn’t shooting to kill but the body count dispels that story. The Tsarev video is posted after the documentary.)

John Beck-Hoffman acknowledges that his film was censored, without going into details. It was initially 90 minutes, important sections pertaining to US sponsorship of the Coup d’Etat were removed. In the words of John Beck Hoffman, in response to comments on his youtube channel;

Comment: On the basis of examining the issues of the Maidan snipers a decent documentary. However, more background to the events that led these “protests” would have been welcomed e.g. Oleg Tsarev’s claims of US NGOs funding regime change in Ukraine. The events in the attempted Macedonian coup shows that the US still up to its tricks.

Beck-Hoffman: “all that was in my original cut of the film which was closer to 90 mins. I went into great detail of USAID, NED, Nuland/Pyatt, corporate interests and the history of how this has happened many times before – I unfortunately had to cut it out for reasons I can’t go into, but I will eventually release the full “directors cut” of the program.”

Beck-Hoffman: [in response to another comment] A Russian language version was released first, as well on youtube. I had also originally made a longer version of the film which went into detail as to “who would benefit” from such an atrocity. It unveiled a lot of what was going on behind the scenes, but that segment ended up being cut from the final film. I would like to release that someday but I have no idea if and when that would be possible. If I do, I will put it on my youtube channel. But please, pass along this film to whomever you think would enjoy it. It needs to get more exposure as so many people have no idea what really happened over there. thanks you again. JBH

Richard Engel 2012 Kidnapping was a Staged Fabrication According to Richard Engel

by Scott Creighton

Back in December of 2012, The “All Obama All the Time” network, NBC, staged a little fake news story designed to ramp-up hatred for the legitimate government in Syria in order to help President Obama’s push for military action in the country that had done nothing to us or their neighbors.

The storyline was simple: a popular foreign correspondent, Richard Engel, and 5 others were “taken hostage” by a group loyal to Bashar al-Assad and held hostage during the end of the first year of Obama’s attempted regime change operation.

They claimed after their dramatic, made for Hollywood “big shootout” rescue that they had been tortured and made to endure mock executions regularly during their 5 day captivity.

It was a big story for NBC as the “hostages” pleaded with the cameras from their confinement for the US and all other countries to do whatever it took to free them.

Of course, it was all a lie.

Who says so? Richard Engel and NBC news.

NBC News on Wednesday revised its account of the 2012 kidnapping of its chief foreign correspondent, Richard Engel, saying it was likely that Mr. Engel and his reporting team had been abducted by a Sunni militant group, not forces affiliated with the government of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. New York Times

According to Richard Engel’s new accounting of what really happened during those 5 days, he was recently “shocked” to discover that his captors were really an FSA militia (the “moderates”) who Richard was there to glorify in the early days of the regime change operation. He went there to document the heroic “freedom fighters” in an attempt to garner support for them with the US population and what ended up happening was… they staged a kidnapping in order to make the Assad regime look sinister… thus ginning up even more support for the FSA terrorists working for the Obama administration.

West tries to use extremism for color revolutions in Russia — Federation Council speaker

from TASS News

The West uses political, ethnic and religious extremism as a geopolitical instrument, including for trying to organize “color revolutions” in Russia, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said on Wednesday.

“Extremism is used as a geopolitical instrument, for reshaping the spheres of influence, overthrowing regimes undesirable for some countries by the means of organizing ‘color revolutions’,” Matviyenko said. “The West makes attempts to organize them [‘color revolutions’] in Russia as well,” she added. These efforts are directed at “discrediting the authorities and destabilizing the situation in Russia, and using both extremist elements and opposition for that,” the speaker noted.

“The Russian government does not plan to embark on a course of ‘tightening screws’ and suppressing ‘dissent’,” Matviyenko stressed. “The authorities are ready for dialogue with the opposition, they will continue to develop partnership with the civil society. Such dialogue and such partnership are important,” she said. However, “it is useless to start discussions with those who works on orders from abroad, in the interests of a foreign country or foreign countries,” Matviyenko added.

China-led AIIB – Denmark Signs on the Dotted Line – A New Threat to the Old World Order?

by Scott Creighton

Russia, India and China are determined to build a more just, fair and stable international political and economic order.” 13th Meeting of Russia, India and China’s foreign ministers on China-led AIIB

Years ago, George W. Bush, when trying to pass his 785 billion dollar banker bailout bill TARP, pleaded with the American people saying we can’t let “the system” die. That we had to give a trillion bucks to the very people who decimated our economy on purpose (turned out to be a lot more) in order to save the Washington Consensus.

He was practically weeping when he said it. You could hear the emotion in his voice. Not the fake emotion he tried to muster when he literally stood on the remains of the victims of 9/11 and uttered those ridiculously embarrassing words “they’ll hear us all soon”. No, this was real emotion, the kind you hear when some actress playing Marie Antoinette proclaims “Then let them eat brioche.” and the French Revolution begins.

The system, the Washington Consensus (neoliberal economic ideology) goes by another name, a name his father, George H. W. Bush, used so lovingly a long time ago and others like Kissinger have used since: the New World Order.

US billionaire George Soros ready to invest $1 billion in Ukrainian economy

(Looks like it’s payday for George Soros in Ukraine. All he needs is a new puppet to run things and a few more neo-Nazi troops trained by President Peace Prize (on your dime) and he’s ready, willing and able to plunder for profit in the new, neolibral Ukraine. We just have to make it safer over there for billionaire vulture capitalists. Whoopee…)

from TASS
