Barely Reported, Then Totally Ignored: The EU’s Obsequiousness to Obama’s Nazism Regarding Ukraine

Eric Zuesse

On 7 February 2014, Oriental Review posted “What about apologizing to Ukraine, Mrs. Nuland?” including a link to the recordings of two successive phone-conversations, uploaded to the Internet the day before, one (up through 04:10) with Obama’s Victoria Nuland telling the U.S. Ambassador in Ukraine whom to appoint (“Yats”) to run the Ukrainian Government after the coup (which would occur two weeks later) and including her subsequently famous line, “F–k the EU,” because the EU’s leaders wouldn’t like to be publicly associated with such boldly nazi (i.e., racist-fascist) people as Obama’s representative was now choosing to run that country; and the other (after 04:10 and spoken in German) between Helga Maria Schmid the EU’s Political Director (also titled the Deputy Director of the EU’s Diplomatic Corps), and Jan Tombinsky the EU’s Ambassador to Ukraine; and this portion of the tape being translated into English at that Oriental Review link, in the printed transcript they were providing of the entire tape.

Schmid told Tombinsky there: “The Americans are beating about the bush and saying that our stand is too soft. They believe we should be stronger and apply sanctions [against Russia]. I talked to Cathy [Catherine Ashton, the EU’s Foreign Affairs chief] and she agrees with us on the matter we were discussing last time. We will do it but we must arrange everything in a clever way [i.e., so as to fool the European public into believing that their leaders care about democracy]. … I want you to know that it would be detrimental to our interests if we see in the newspapers that «The European Union does not support  freedom» [by its supporting coup-installed nazis to rule in Ukraine]. Cathy will not like it [to be exposed].”

The rot, at the top, is so dangerous, it must stop.

But who will even let the public know about it?

Then, ten days later, on 17 February 2014, Paul Craig Roberts blogged, “US and EU Are Paying Ukrainian Rioters and Protesters,” and he reported that:

A number of confirmations have come in from readers that Washington is fueling the violent protests in Ukraine with our taxpayer dollars. Washington has no money for food stamps or to prevent home foreclosures, but it has plenty of money with which to subvert Ukraine.

One reader wrote: “My wife, who is of Ukrainian nationality, has weekly contact to her parents and friends in Zhytomyr [NW Ukraine]. According to them, most protesters get an average payment of 200-300 grivna, corresponding to about 15-25 euro. As I additionally heard, one of the most active agencies and ‘payment outlets’ on EU side is the German ‘Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’, being closely connected to the CDU, i.e. Mrs. Merkel’s party.”

Johannes Loew of the Internet site writes: “I am just back from Ukraine (I live in Munich/Germany) and I was a lot at the Maidan. Most of those people get only 100 grivna. 300 is for Students.”

As I reported on February 12, “Washington Orchestrated Protests Are Destabilizing  Ukraine,” 

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, a rabid Russophobe and neoconservative warmonger, told the National Press Club last December that the US has “invested” $5 billion in organizing a network to achieve US goals in Ukraine in order to give “Ukraine the future it deserves.” 

Nuland is the Obama regime official who was caught red-handed naming the members of the Ukrainian government Washington intends to impose on the Ukrainian people once the paid protesters have unseated the current elected and independent government.

How many Americans managed to know about this Obama rot via the U.S. “news” media such as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox, NYT,  WP, PBS, NPR, The Nation, Mother Jones, The Progressive, The Atlantic, Harper’s, Salon, Slate, HuffingtonPost, Alternet, CommonDreams, etc.? Since this is the Republican Obama that’s being displayed, even the overtly Republican “news” media such as Fox have hidden it. And the “liberal” press also do, because they don’t want the public to know that Obama is a closeted Republican. (For example, The Progressive  is published by Lisa Graves with money from George Soros, who was one of the investors in Obama’s nazi takeover of Ukraine.)

How can the American people vote intelligently if the aristocracy who own the “news” media won’t even let them know what’s really being done by the leaders they elect? How can democracy survive a deceived public?

If congressional Democrats want to restore democracy to this country, they’ll have to introduce the first impeachment resolution against Barack Obama. If they don’t do that, then the entire political class in this country is complicit in the termination of American democracy — it’s not just the Republicans who are fascists.

    “it’s not just the Republicans who are fascists.”

  • BuelahMan

    I’ll point this out to the densest around here:

    Nuland is a Jew, married to a Neocon Jew, discussing Yats (a Jew).

    But Nazi, Nazi, Nazi.

    Booga Booga.

    Now, if you knew anything about Jews, you would know that being in bed with Nazis is the last thing they would do… unless its all a ruse to fool the most gullible (even the “award winning” writers).

    But you just keep up the nonsense, eric.

      Your assumption that a Jew cannot be a nazi (lower-case, meaning of any nationality, not upper-case, which refers to only the original ‘Nazi Party,’ which was the German one) is to assume that no Jew can be a racist fascist. But that’s what most Israeli Jews actually are: they’re fascists and they’re racists against ethnic Arabs or ‘Palestinians,’ who therefore suffer under a different set of laws in Israel. The Jews who are nazis regarding Ukraine are fascist racists against ethnic Russians, rather than against ethnic Arabs.
      There are some people of every ethnicity who are nazis — racist fascists. They might have different bigotries, but they’re nazis just the same.

        Its just a muddying of truth. I am trying to understand if you are just stupid or a shill.

        • jadan

          Shut the fuck up.

          • BuelahMan

            Ass-kissing sycophants will never address the real problem.

      Hitler, self-hating son of a Jewish mother, NaZionist

      USA, deports Soviets, then imports and employs Nazis in its intelligence agencies (Reinhard Gehlen) and rocket program (Wernher von Braun). Reborn post 9/11 coup and reintroduced its reconstituted self to the world as the “Homeland”, a distinctly Nazi turn of phrase (in opposition to ausland).

      Refused to attack Germany from the west while it was vulnerable and engaged in a death match with US “ally” Russia in WWII.

      Domestic Nazi plot, the “Business Coup” to depose FDR.

      For Lindbergh’s 1927 flight and services to aviation, on behalf of Adolf
      Hitler, Göring presented him with the Commander Cross of the Order of the German Eagle. (Henry Ford received the same award earlier in July.)

      USA’s government, a representative plutocracy, the binding of corporation and government.

        Hitler wasn’t descended from any Rothschilds or Frankenbergers. If he had any Jewish blood, it has never been authoritatively traced.

        One proponent of the claim Hitler was Jewish cites Brigitte Hamann’s Hitler’s Vienna as proof, pointing out the book describes stories of Hitler’s Jewish heritage. In fact, Hamann dissects the legends, refuting them in detail. Scholars such as Carolyn Yeager and Veronica Clark, in Warwolves of the Iron Cross, have also demolished the rumors.

        The Venona Project:Decoding Soviet Espionage in America

        The Venona Project began because Carter Clarke did not trust Joseph Stalin. Colonel Clarke was chief of the U.S. Army’s Special Branch, part of the War Department’s Military Intelligence Division, and in 1943 its officers heard vague rumors of secret German-Soviet peace negotiations.
        American code-breakers discovered that the Soviet Union was using a complex two-part ciphering system involving a “one-time pad” code that in theory was unbreakable. The Venona code-breakers, however, combined acute intellectual analysis with painstaking examination of thousands of coded telegraphic cables to spot a Soviet procedural error that opened the cipher to attack. But by the time they had rendered the first messages into readable text in 1946, the war was over and Clarke’s initial goal was moot. Nor did the messages show evidence of a Soviet quest for a separate peace. What they did demonstrate, however, stunned American officials. Messages thought to be between Soviet diplomats at the Soviet consulate in New York and the People’s Commissariat of Foreign Affairs in Moscow turned out to be cables between professional intelligence field officers and Gen. Pavel Fitin, head of the foreign intelligence directorate of the KGB in Moscow. Espionage, not diplomacy, was the subject of these cables. One of the first cables rendered into coherent text was a 1944 message from KGB officers in New York showing that the Soviet Union had infiltrated America’s most secret enterprise, the atomic bomb project.
        By 1948 the accumulating evidence from other decoded Venona cables showed that the Soviets had recruited spies in virtually every major American government agency of military or diplomatic importance. American authorities learned that since 1942 the United States had been the target of a Soviet espionage onslaught involving dozens of professional Soviet intelligence officers and hundreds of Americans, many of whom were members of the American Communist party (CPUSA).

        President Roosevelt’s Campaign To Incite War in Europe:The Secret Polish Documents

        Much has already been written about Roosevelt’s campaign of deception and outright lies in getting the United States to intervene in the Second World War prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Roosevelt’s aid to Britain and the Soviet Union in violation of American neutrality and international law, his acts of war against Germany in the Atlantic in an effort to provoke a German declaration of war against the United States, his authorization of a vast “dirty tricks” campaign against U.S. citizens by British intelligence agents in violation of the Constitution, and his provocations and ultimatums against Japan which brought on the attack against Pearl Harbor — all this is extensively documented and reasonably well known.
        Not so well known is the story of Roosevelt’s enormous responsibility for the outbreak of the Second World War itself. This essay focuses on Roosevelt’s secret campaign to provoke war in Europe prior to the outbreak of hostilities in September 1939. It deals particularly with his efforts to pressure Britain, France and Poland into war against Germany in 1938 and 1939.

        Franklin Roosevelt not only criminally involved America in a war which had already engulfed Europe. He bears a grave responsibility before history for the outbreak of the most destructive war of all time.

        This paper relies heavily on a little-known collection of secret Polish documents which fell into German hands when Warsaw was captured in September 1939. These documents clearly establish Roosevelt’s crucial role in bringing on the Second World War. They also reveal the forces behind the President (guess who those forces were?) which pushed for war.

          All of the anti-Semites here should just go to hell, not contaminate, with their irrelevant obsession of hating all Jews (and of admiring whom other than Hitler himself?), one of the best news-sites on the Internet or anywhere. Your distractions are subtractions; so please just stay away, and drag here no more of your filth.

          • Buster_Banter

            How is what I posted come across as antisemitic? I didn’t state anything about Jews in my post you whining cry baby.
            How is what I posted about Hitler admiring him? I was disagreeing with the assertion that his mother was Jewish and you’d think that would work in the favor of the Jews.
            There’s this constant attempt at manipulation of current affairs and history with this hyperbolic victimhood. This persecution complex that you and many Jews have is really remarkable.
            Furthermore, I don’t have to stay away because you order it you whining cry baby control freak. Kiss it!

          • P Canon

            ditto. nobody needs it. I think it is intentional distraction, to undermine the message.

    • ClubToTheHead

      That’s like saying Obama doesn’t hate Black people because he’s Black.

      He hates them enough to give them worthless hope in exchange for kicking them to the side to be trampled by the White power structure.

      • BuelahMan

        You want to know who did NOT hate blacks? Hitler, as exposed by Jesse Owens, himself. Nor did he hate the thousands of blacks that served for Gremany during the war. Or the hundreds of Jews that served in the German army, including Generals.

        Eric doesn’t have a clue what the hell he is talking about.

    • P Canon

      you should learn to read, BM

      • BuelahMan

        You might explain where I misread anything.

        Am I incorrect in naming those Jews as Jews?

        • P Canon

          okay, what I meant was this. there are many articles on many respected news outlets about what EZ is discussing here. this is a serious issue, which is causing ethnic cleansing of innocent civilians in Ukraine. it even appears that the population of Slavyansk has been mysteriously obliterated by the Ukrainian army. there arereports that non one who used to live there is there anymore. they are instead importing people from Western Ukraine into that city. the US started all of this and we are backing it. all we are doing could lead us to nuclear war with russia, in addition to all the cruelty and war crimes. to be fair, it is so hard for Americans to understand current affairs because Washington and our news media NEVER STOP LYING to us now. every word (nearly) out of their mouths is a lie. they are miscreants, criminals, a very rich mafia and nothing else.

          • BuelahMan

            I agree with everything you write and cannot fathom why you change the subject of my point.

            You wrote:

            Washington and our news media NEVER STOP LYING to us now

            When did they EVER tell us the truth? Before Vietnam? Before JFK? Before Korea? Before WWII?

            What I am saying is that they NEVER tell us the truth, including the vaunted “good war” (WWII) and every reason we went. I am saying that the same culprits are involved with every deed and every lie (its a tribal thing).

            If someone is throwing around the nazi term in relation to Jews means they don’t understand the significance of their error and how it continues to perpetuate the lie.

            If he wants to use an accurate comparison, use the term Bolshevik.

            they are miscreants, criminals, a very rich mafia and nothing else

            Well, yes, they are also Jews.

          • P Canon

            look, let’s be honest… some are Jews and some are WASP and some are reported to be practicing satanists… no sense in blaming only one group
