I often find myself having a weird perspective on things, coming to an understanding of issues by piecing together information obliquely, or by going “the long way ’round.” I suppose to some degree, that’s just the nature of the human experience – what, with having limited time and experience to draw from, you can only start to solve some of these puzzled from where you are. But it’s not lost to me how… particularly specific and tangential this lead-in will be.
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you’ll know I’ve advocated for Orthodoxy many times in the past, as I’ve endeavored to live an Orthodox life myself. Really quickly, for those who don’t know, Orthodoxy is like, one of the oldest Apostolic, Traditional forms of Christianity there is. To the average Westerner, you would think they look like Catholics with funny hats, but the truth is, the East (Orthodoxy) split from the West (Roman Catholicism) in 1054 AD, due to all sorts of Ecumenical disputes.
Quick Church history lesson: you had the Pentarchy during the first millennia of the undivided Church. These were the 5 seats of power from which the Patriarchs of the church ruled – Rome, Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria, and Constantinople. These guys were supposed to be “co-equal” in terms of authority, but Rome had a ton of money, and a lot of political power, started committing heresies, and wanted to rule over the other 4 Patriarchs.
The 4 were like, “Hey buddy, sorry, it doesn’t work that way.”
The 1 was like, “Well it does now. You’re all excommunicated.”
And the 4 were like, “Fine, you’re excommunicated, too!”
And the 1 was like, “Yeah, but you still got Saracen hordes to deal with and now you have no money, so enjoy losing your armies!! Pffffffttttbbbbtttt!!!” (That’s a tongue noise).
And the rest is basically a pile of BS history and nonsense. And then lots of Catholics got mad at Rome, too, and decided they were doing things wrong (which, in their defense, they were), and like, 400-600 years later, they all spun off their own Churches (under the guidance of people like Luther and Calvin). But then, some of those guys decided Luther and Calvin were bad, so they spun off. And then others spun off from the spin-off. And some came to American and spun-off. And so on and so forth until here we are, in the modern day, with 45,000+ different Protestant denominations, all equally claiming to know the real truth of God.
In short, the whole situation is a mess. And while I was raised in one of those 45,000 competing Prot denominations, I grew increasingly frustrated with many of the teachings and the conflicts I saw; often feeling like I was taking crazy pills, because it seemed I was the only one who was picking up on these things. So, in my quest for understanding, I figured I’d go back to the roots of it all, and Orthodoxy probably has a better claim than any other group over maintaining original, Biblical teachings and practice. I tried to get onboard with that. I was catechized, baptized, and received into the Orthodox communion a couple years later.
Despite that, my experience within Orthodoxy has been nothing short of absolute suckage. I haven’t been able to integrate into the community, or to maintain the desire to even show up to services for some time. If you ever wanted to see a congregation of the “Frozen chosen,” going through the motions because grandma and grandpa did before them, look no further. I’m not trying to be uncharitable to the actual passionate faithful (of which, there are a handful), and to a certain degree there’s a fair amount of families just trying to raise their kids the right way, but in truth, I don’t see a lot of passion or desire to engage within any Orthodox parish. I see a lot of Ethnic legacies, and pointless traditions carried on because… it’s “tradition.”
And the best way I can put it is… It’s like in Japan, where all these elaborate traditions came about for specific reasons, within specific contexts, but that context no longer exists, and so these elaborate rituals have actually lost meaning. No one knows why they’re there, or why they’re doing thing; they just go through elaborate mimicry. In the meanwhile, everyone tunes out and goes back to “the real world” the second the ritual is over. I’ll tell ya; some of the things some “Orthodox” do or say will have you scratching your head, going… “Wait, I thought you were supposed to be Christian…”
In my limited experience, it’s almost like Prots have all the passion despite maintaining all the wrong practices (and many wrong teachings), and Orthos have all the right practices, teachings… and somehow, none of the passion.
So which is better? And why doesn’t a synthesis exist?
I’m gonna pre-empt a particularly cringe-inducing sayings Prots like to repeat, which… please, for the love of God, I don’t want to hear again: that it’s “about ‘relationship,’ not religion,” dozens of times in the comments.
While the sentiment is alright… You’re absolutely 100% wrong on that point for a multitude of reasons I can’t go into in this article, but it’s also why you have 45,000 competing different denominations, instead of one, unified body. And all of these denominations teach outright heresy in one form or another (which many fail to even realize/understand in the first place, and unwittingly accept). No, really – that bumper sticker doctrine sounds good on the surface, but it’s one of the dumbest, shallowest things ever uttered by Prots. So please, don’t spam up my comments with nonsense like that.
And no appeals to a vague sense of the “Holy Spirit” either. You sound like plebian hippies, minus the happy-tobaccy:
“Just follow the s p i r i t, maaaaaan.”
But I’m not here to knock on Prots today. Like I said, Orthodoxy is faaaaar from perfect.
One of the things I had to struggle with is understanding the modern hierarchy, because the Patriarchate didn’t go anywhere. No, see, it’s been maintained for 2000 years. Some of the Modern Patriarchs include Patriarch Bartholomew in Constantinople:
And Patriarch Kirill in Moscow:
(See what I meant when I said “Catholics” in funny hats)?
There are others, but for my oblique lead-in to this subject, these are the big two.
And they’re both affiliated with the Deep State.
Or… at least… warring factions of the Deep State.
See, Pope Bart up there is a total CIA/Cabal guy. Go dig his name on Wikileaks sometime. He comes up over and over again. He also tends to clash with Kirill.
But before you go thinking Kirill is a good-guy, well… he’s “ex” KGB.
(And is anyone ever really ex-KGB?)
He also has a bit of a thing for worldly wealth. Think expensive watches, and expensive cars.
And you can imagine, that doesn’t fly to well in some of the poorer areas of Russia. Which is why, in this church-issued photograph, they edited out the $40,000 watch he was wearing…
But forgot to edit out its reflection in the table.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Orthodoxy.
Anyway, in my effort to find the true church, all I found was deep-state proxies, and most recently, these two guys, Bart and Kirill, have been at war with each other over Ukraine – to such an extent that it might cause another schism in the Orthodox church – something that hasn’t really happened (to this magnitude) in 1000 years.
Historically… Ukraine has been under Moscow’s jurisdiction – which means Kiev gets its leadership appointed by Moscow. Constantinople made this official in 1686.
Anyway, some guys weren’t cool with that. They wanted to be out from under Moscow… and because Kiev is such a… let’s say important place within Orthodoxy (due to the Kiev caves monastic traditions), they had some ability to “legitimize” those claims.
Anyway, there were two guys who were originally Russian Priests – Patriarch Filaret:
And Metropolitan Macarius:
(And I’ll just say right here… I don’t “get” the hats, either. I just don’t).
Anyway, both were excommunicated by Russia, went on to found two competing “Orthodox” churches – the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Kiev Patriarchate)… and basically, these Churches which drew a lot of people from around Ukraine.
But they were schismatics running their own schismatic churches.
And normally, you denounce schismatics, but carry on as normal. And everyone knows and shuns schismatics until they repent, at which point, you figure out a way to re-introduce them back into the life of the church.
That’s what normally happens, anyway.
That didn’t happen here.
No, instead, this guy, Pope Bart-
-went rogue, and unilaterally decided…
“Hey, you know what? I’m gonna recognize the Ukrainian schismatic churches as legit. Welcome to the fold, Filaret and Marcarius!”
So basically, those two schismatic guys got elevated to… essentially, the Orthodox papacy, overnight, because the Patriarch of Constantinople (and thus, head of every single “Greek” church around the entire world) decided to side with them. Meanwhile, every single Russian-headed jurisdiction was furious.
Now… remember, Bart is basically CIA.
Kirill is KGB.
And the Ukraine is essentially the battlefield of this clandestine war between these two factions. There are no real “good guys” here. There are no real “white hats” in this scenario. Just two groups, vying with each other for power.
The context prior to this is that… first you have the (Soros-Funded) Orange Revolution in 2004, between Viktor Yushchenko and Viktor Yanukovych (with Yanukovych being the Kremlin-backed guy, and Yushchenko being the CIA/Soros-backed guy, where Yanukovych originally won, but was accused of massive election fraud – which is when Soros and the CIA swooped in and fomented one of Soros’ “Color Revolutions” – in this case, the Orange Revolution. An international body eventually came in, oversaw a “fair” election, and Yushchenko came out on top this time:
Anti-Trump protests so strong and well coordinated make spontaneity unlikely to the reasoning observer who makes out that ”someone is stirring the pot because America has never traditionally had a problem with accepting the outcome of an election,” as one analyst put it.
Soros’ foundations were also deeply involved in the 2004 Orange Revolution that brought the corrupt but pro-NATO Viktor Yushchenko into power with his American wife who had been in the US State Department. In 2004 just weeks after Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation had succeeded in getting Viktor Yushchenko as President of Ukraine. Anyone familiar with the history of the Soros Open Society Foundations in Eastern Europe and around the world since the late 1980’s, will know that his supposedly philanthropic “democracy-building” projects in Poland, Russia, or Ukraine in the 1990’s allowed Soros the businessman to literally plunder the former communist countries’ wealth.
Interesting fact about his wife, right? She was born in Chicago, the daughter of Ukrainian immigrants, worked for the Reagan White House, the Treasury, and Poppy Bush, before changing her name from the American “Catherine” to the more Ukrainian “Kateryna,” and marrying Viktor. Potential handler material if you ask me.
Oh, and Putin tried to have Yushchenko poisoned in 2004, causing his skin to break out in a condition known as chloracne:
Viktor Yushchenko, himself poisoned in 2004, says expelling diplomats is a start but military action against Russia may be needed.
Anyway, fast-forward a big. Yanukovych, the Kremlin-backed candidate, finally wins in 2010. And when I say Kremlin-backed, I mean, effectively Russian for all intents and purposes. You want to see what real #RussianCollusion looks like, you look at Ukraine in 2010. Yanukovych didn’t even speak Ukrainian that well. Russian was literally his first language.
Here’s a photo of Putin and Yanukovych from 2013, attending a moleben service together:
(More hats that make their heads look like giant gold onions. I’m sure I just committed a sacrilege of some sort by saying that)…
Oh, and by the way, the guy literally stole ~100 BILLION dollars from Ukrainian citizens:
LONDON (Reuters) – Ukraine’s chief prosecutor has accused Viktor Yanukovich of heading a mafia-style syndicate whose crimes cost the former Soviet republic up to $100 billion and said some of the stolen money was now being used to fund Russian-backed separatists.
The scale of corruption was so unfathomable, it kicked off the 2014 Ukranian revolution, with the people wanting to overthrow the entire government and start again from scratch.
Well, what did Yanukovych do?
He calls up the Kremlin and asks for backup. Russia called it an illegal coup d’etat, sent in the military, and forcibly established an interim government which “conveniently” signs on to EU agreements.
Yanukovych gets ousted in 2014, and now lives in exile in Russia.
But before he does… look who hops a plane and shows up in in Kiev:
KIEV, Ukraine – The United States could take “concrete action” against Ukraine if its government cracks down on dissent, Senator John McCain warned Sunday as he addressed thousands of protesters camped on Kiev’s bitterly cold main square.McCain, a leading Republican voice on U.S.
That’s right. Old #NoName himself! And notice the language:
The United States could take “concrete action” against Ukraine if its government cracks down on dissent, Senator John McCain warned Sunday as he addressed thousands of protesters camped on Kiev’s bitterly cold main square.
McCain, a leading Republican voice on U.S. foreign policy, told NBC News that sanctions against Ukraine “would deserve serious consideration” by Congress if Ukraine signed a customs and trade union with Russia instead of entering a trade deal with Europe.
“What would provoke more concrete action is if there is any brutal repression of the demonstrators,” McCain added.
That’s the “concrete code” popping up again here, folks.
Anyway, Yushchenko’s successor ends up being the business oligarch Petro Poroshenko, also known as the “chocolate king.” Poroshenko gets elected as the 5th president of the Ukraine – earning his nickname from the big candy company he owns.
And then, also in 2014, the Russians go and annex Crimea from the Ukraine, giving them more control over the Black Sea (think oil/trade)…
So essentially, what I’m trying to get at here is you have these Church hierarchs waging a strange sort of proxy war against each other, in disputed “Russian” territory, vying for influence/control over the populace.
And in case it isn’t obvious by now, Petro Poroshenko is total #Cabal. Hat tip to Imperator Rex (who we’ll be visiting with in a moment anyway) for bringing this to my attention:
Another corruption scandal has broken out for Ukraine’s embattled President Petro Poroshenko, only two weeks away from presidential elections, via a massive leak of hacked files that also implicate the president's friends.
Another corruption scandal has broken out around Ukraine’s embattled President Petro Poroshenko, only two weeks away from presidential elections, via a massive leak of hacked files. Under the title “Ukrainian Papers”, the leak contains thousands of documents and correspondence relating to Poroshenko’s offshore business empire, his business partners and political allies Oleg Hladkovskiy and Ihor Kononenko, and their managers Sergii Zaitsev and Dmytro Lytvynets.
The leak comes shortly after a similar leak prompted Poroshenko to dismiss his business partner and deputy head of the National Security and Defence Council Hladkovskiy on March 4. Journalists accused Hladkovskiy of embezzlement from the army, which he denies.
The new leak relates to the president and his inner circle of business partners turned top officials. It also includes the email correspondence of Oleh Liashko, another presidential contender and — sensationally — the promise that the personal email correspondence of Poroshenko and his lieutenants will appear shortly.
So yeah, this guy is another really corrupt Cabal-affiliated politician, but perhaps more savvy than his predecessor.
Which is why his relationship with Patriarch Filaret should raise eyebrows:
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has decided to award Patriarch Filaret (Denysenko) of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) the title “Hero of Ukraine”, he announced on his official Facebook page. “No level has yet been invented which could measure the contribution of Patriarch Filaret to the fight for our own local church.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has decided to award Patriarch Filaret (Denysenko) of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) the title “Hero of Ukraine”, he announced on his official Facebook page.
“No level has yet been invented which could measure the contribution of Patriarch Filaret to the fight for our own local church. He has been and remains the spiritual leader of the Ukrainian church, the spiritual leader of the Ukrainian people. That is why I have decided to grant him the title Hero of Ukraine,” the President wrote.
“The title Hero of Ukraine is awarded to Filaret for his outstanding historic role in the formation of the independent UOC, his activity aimed at reviving the spirituality of the Ukrainian nation, raising the authority of orthodoxy, and affirming the ideals of mercy and interconfessional agreement,” Poroshenko’s press service wrote.
Ukrainians gathered in Kyiv on Oct. 14 to hold a mass prayer celebrating the Ukrainian Orthodox Church’s recent steps toward independence from Moscow. Attendees, including President Petro Poroshenko, gathered on the city’s Sofiivska Square to thank the Istanbul-based Ecumenical Patriarchate for granting approval for Ukraine to establish an independent — or “autocephalous” — Orthodox church. …
Attendees, including President Petro Poroshenko, gathered on the city’s Sofiivska Square to thank the Istanbul-based Ecumenical Patriarchate for granting approval for Ukraine to establish an independent — or “autocephalous” — Orthodox church.
Then, on Oct. 11, Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople recognized the legitimacy of the bishops Filaret and Makariy, the leaders of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, respectively.
The two Ukrainian churches spearheaded by Filaret and Makariy — both of whom were in attendance at the mass prayer — are now considered part of the Constantinople Church and not as part of the Russian Church anymore.
Oh, and he’s been here in the US recently, meddling where he could (perhaps because he knows what’s coming down the pike… which, again, we’ll get into in a bit):
On Monday, September 24, Petro Poroshenko arrived in the United States. The official goal of his visit was participation in the regular session of the UN General Assembly. Besides, “a number of bilateral meetings with world leaders, business circles and leaders of the Ukrainian community in the United States” were announced.
At the end of September, three largest figures arrived simultaneously in the US, who one way or another have to do with the creation of the Single Local Church.

Besides, “a number of bilateral meetings with world leaders, business circles and leaders of the Ukrainian community in the United States” were announced.
By the “pure coincidence”, two people visited the US at the same time, who are positioned as candidates for the position of the SLC head. This is Metropolitan Simeon (Shostatsky) of Vinnitsia and Bary and UOC KP chief Filaret.
Each of the above-mentioned persons is somehow connected with the issue of the creation in Ukraine of an ecclesiastic structure called the “Single Local Church”. Two of them are engaged with this project publicly. Petro Poroshenko made a hgh-profile statement on April 20, 2018 that he managed to persuade Patriarch Bartholomew to grant autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church. Since then, the President has been making such statements regularly and, in fact, itemized the issue of the Single Church as the first point of his election program.
In September 18, [Simeon] met with former US Vice President Joseph Biden. In spite of the fact that Biden openly positions himself as an active propagandist of the LGBT, he awards him with a church order of Prince Vladimir the Great of the II degree.
A little later, Filaret had a meeting with the US Senator from Ohio Robert Portman. Despite the fact that Portman openly positions himself as a lobbyist of gay marriages, Denisenko awards him with exactly the same order – Prince Vladimir of the II degree.
On September 19, Filaret organized a meeting in one of the “think tanks” of the American establishment – the Atlantic Counsil (sic).
Sounds real fishy, right?
On top of two heads of what is ostensibly the most staunch and traditional form of Christianity awarding those two Cabal clowns literal awards, you’re talking about Filaret literally going to a #Soros-backed org, when he went to the Atlantic Council.
For those who don’t know, the Atlantic Council was the group that slammed Disobedient Media when they exposed the Clintons and Laura Silsby’s child trafficking operation out of Haiti:
Via Disobedient Media It took just a few months for Disobedient Media to go from a sleepy news outlet to apparently garnering the attention of multiple power brokers on the global stage.
On February 10th, 2017, an article distributed by the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensics Lab attacked research published by Disobedient Media concerning the EU and added the Atlantic Council to a line of media houses and other outlets who deny the Wikileaks and Harvard Human Rights Journal supported research collected and published by Disobedient Media exposing the role that the Clintons and Department of State played in helping Laura Silsby and her co-conspirators off the hook after they were caught smuggling children illegally out of Haiti.
The Atlantic Council has accepted donations from funds owned by George Soros and a multitude of other foreign and domestic special interest groups, pushed harmful and imperialistic neoconservative political viewpoints to intellectuals and readers and promoted “black propaganda” now debunked by the intelligence community claiming that Russia was likely to hack the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections, and that Wikileaks is a pawn of the Russian government.
The Atlantic Council has a troubling history of taking money from foreign special interest groups and government agencies in return for pushing propaganda to support various initiatives around the globe. The New York Times has named the Atlantic Council along with the Brookings Institution and the Center for Strategic and International Studies as being think tanks which have made undisclosed “agreements” with foreign governments. The article denounced the Atlantic Council for having “opened a whole new window into an aspect of the influence-buying in Washington that has not previously been exposed.”
In May 2016, a report by the Associated Press identified the Atlantic Council as one of a number of think tanks which had received funding from the Ploughshares Fund. The Ploughshares Fund is financed by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. A May 5, 2016 article by the New York Times revealed that the Ploughshares Fund was a major player in efforts to sell the Iranian nuclear deal to the American public. The deal has been generally criticized as a foreign policy failure, resulted in the transfer of hundreds of billions of dollars to Iran without any concessions in return and has failed to prevent Iran from continuing to illegally test long range ICBM missiles in violation of both the deal and international sanctions.
Atlantic Council has released a number of glowing reviews of Soros’ “philanthropic” work despite the fact that his Open Society Foundation has recently been expelled from Hungary and is under audit along with affiliated NGO groups in Macedonia due to accusations of meddling in national elections and improperly seeking to influence public opinion.
The Atlantic Council proudly lists a jaw dropping number of various special interest groups, government agencies, foreign governments and well connected, wealthy individual patrons among its donors. Highlights on the list include the foundation of Ukranian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, The Open Society Foundation, the United Arab Emirates, Bahaa Hariri, the billionaire brother of Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Inc., NATO, the United States Department of State, Lockheed Martin Corporation and the Turkish Ministry of Energy & National Resources, whose head Berat Albayrak was the subject of leaks released by publishing giant Wikileaks exposing increasing political oppression in Turkey.
The whole article is mind-blowing. Everyone should read it when they get the chance.
Moreover, the Atlantic Council has a partnership with Burisma Group, a Ukrainian natural gas company.
Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden sits on the board at Burisma!
WASHINGTON – When Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. traveled to Kiev , Ukraine, on Sunday for a series of meetings with the country’s leaders, one of the issues on his agenda was to encourage a more aggressive fight against Ukraine’s rampant corruption and stronger efforts to rein in the power of its oligarchs.
Oh, but it doesn’t end there:
In the last days of the Obama administration, Vice President Joe Biden took a “swan song” trip to Ukraine, a notoriously corrupt country where he had been the administration’s “point person.”
In the last days of the Obama administration, Vice President Joe Biden took a “swan song” trip to Ukraine, a notoriously corrupt country where he had been the administration’s “point person.” On the eve of this trip, the country announced it would end a criminal investigation into a company connected to the loss of $1.8 billion in aid funding — a company whose board of directors included Biden’s son Hunter.
The Biden family’s dealings with this Ukrainian company involved getting one of the country’s most notorious mob bankers, Ihor Kolomoisky, off the U.S. government visa ban list. Under Biden’s leadership, $3 billion in aid went to Ukraine, and his son’s company was implicated in the disappearance of $1.8 billion of that money.
And later, Biden brag to a CFR audience about his Ukrainian strong-arming during another trip (and this is a John Solomon article, so… while it didn’t get the kind of attention it normally does among the QAnon-crowd, I think it’s because we really weren’t aware of the full extent of what was going on here, yet):
Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden Joseph (Joe) Robinette Biden Buttigieg says he doubts Sanders can win general election This is the Joe Biden you rarely see Minorities, older adults push Biden to top of 2020 poll MORE couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor.
Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor.
In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.
But Ukrainian officials tell me there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member.
U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.
Honestly, I’m getting shades of Poppy Bush working for Zapata oil here, more than anything else. But instead of happening in the Gulf of Mexico, this is all happening in former Soviet Satellite states.
Most of the general prosecutor’s investigative work on Burisma focused on three separate cases, and most stopped abruptly once Shokin was fired. The most prominent of the Burisma cases was transferred to a different Ukrainian agency, closely aligned with the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, known as the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), according to the case file and current General Prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko.
NABU closed that case, and a second case involving alleged improper money transfers in London was dropped when Ukrainian officials failed to file the necessary documents by the required deadline. The general prosecutor’s office successfully secured a multimillion-dollar judgment in a tax evasion case, Lutsenko said. He did not say who was the actual defendant in that case.
As a result, the Biden family appeared to have escaped the potential for an embarrassing inquiry overseas in the final days of the Obama administration and during an election in which Democrat Hillary Clinton was running for president in 2016.
But then, as Biden’s 2020 campaign ramped up over the past year, Lutsenko — the Ukrainian prosecutor that Biden once hailed as a “solid” replacement for Shokin — began looking into what happened with the Burisma case that had been shut down.
Lutsenko told me that, while reviewing the Burisma investigative files, he discovered “members of the Board obtained funds as well as another U.S.-based legal entity, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, for consulting services.”
Lutsenko said some of the evidence he knows about in the Burisma case may interest U.S. authorities and he’d like to present that information to new U.S. Attorney General William Barr, particularly the vice president’s intervention.
Nazar Kholodnytskyi, the lead anti-corruption prosecutor in Lutsenko’s office, confirmed to me in an interview that part of the Burisma investigation was reopened in 2018, after Joe Biden made his remarks. “We were able to start this case again,” Kholodnytskyi said.
Between April 2014 and October 2015, more than $3 million was paid out of Burisma accounts to an account linked to Biden’s and Archer’s Rosemont Seneca firm, according to the financial records placed in a federal court file in Manhattan in an unrelated case against Archer.
The bank records show that, on most months when Burisma money flowed, two wire transfers of $83,333.33 each were sent to the Rosemont Seneca–connected account on the same day. The same Rosemont Seneca–linked account typically then would pay Hunter Biden one or more payments ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 each. Prosecutors reviewed internal company documents and wanted to interview Hunter Biden and Archer about why they had received such payments, according to interviews.
(Emphasis mine). Sorry for the lengthy excerpts, but there’s SO much to understand here.
Is the outline of the corruption beginning to get clearer? Because believe me; we’re only just scratching the surface here.
One more “fun fact” about Poroshenko.
He wanted a #NoName Lane in the capital city:
Incumbent Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko may have found a super weapon to defeat his main political opponent, comic Volodimir Zelensky, in the second round of the presidential election, which is set to be held later in April. Mr Poroshenko is going to rename a street in the capital of Kiev after John McCain.
That should speak volumes in and of itself.
But during this whole era, from 2014-2015 – guess who pops up in the Ukraine.
Yes, the “author” of the Steele Dossier.
On February 4, 2018, Victoria Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State in the Obama Administration went on Face the Nation and made the following comment: During the Ukraine crisis in 2014-15, Chris Steele had a number of commercial clients who were asking him for reports on what was going on in…
On February 4, 2018, Victoria Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State in the Obama Administration went on Face the Nation and made the following comment:
During the Ukraine crisis in 2014-15, Chris Steele had a number of commercial clients who were asking him for reports on what was going on in Russia, what was going on in Ukraine, what was going on between them. Chris had a friend [Jonathan Winer] at the State Department and he offered us that reporting free so that we could also benefit from it. It was one of, you know, hundreds of sources that we were using to try to understand what was going on.
Then, in the middle of July, when he was doing this other work and became concerned, he passed two to four pages of short points of what he was finding and our immediate reaction to that was, this is not in our purview. This needs to go to the FBI if there is any concern here that one candidate or the election as a whole might be influenced by the Russian Federation. That’s something for the FBI to investigate.
Nuland said the State Department received the Dossier directly from Steele in mid-July 2016, whereupon the State Department turned it over to the FBI.
Here’s a video clip of that segment:
Former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland tells that Christopher Steele, author of the Russia dossier, shared similar information with the State Department: https://t.co/4QS32hAlQq
Where did “Steele” get the bulk of his “oppo-research” from? Well, initially he claimed to have all these private sources, Sources A-F, all with intimidating descriptive titles like, “Source D – a close associate of Trump who had organized and managed his recent trips to Moscow.”
(By the way, I keep putting Steele’s name in quotations of late because I don’t think he, himself, wrote the dossier but rather, it was written by an underling – Ed Baumgartner. Steele then slapped his name on the finished dossier to give it more credibility as a source).
Steele later admitted to using random user-generated content he found online. And there’s also the distinct possibility he was directly paying people working under the command of the Kremlin, in order to get them to tell him what he wanted to hear. But even with that in mind, that still doesn’t cover everything in his dossier.
This is why I’m sure it’s just a “total coincidence” that a Ukranian-American lawyer working for the DNC by the name of Alexandra Chalupa, had opened up an independent investigation into Paul Manafort as far back as 2014, and that this same info ended up in the Steele Dossier.
Jeff Carlson provides a neat timeline:
2014 (undetermined) -Chalupa begins to investigate Paul Manafort.
Chalupa, a lawyer by training, in 2014 was doing pro bono work for another client interested in the Ukrainian crisis and began researching Manafort’s role in Yanukovych’s rise, as well as his ties to the pro-Russian oligarchs who funded Yanukovych’s political party.
Late 2015 – Chalupa expands her opposition research into Manafort to include Trump’s ties to Russia.
Chalupa told Politico she had developed a network of sources in Kiev and Washington, including investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives. When Trump’s unlikely presidential campaign began surging in late 2015, she began focusing more on the research, and expanded it to include Trump’s ties to Russia, as well.
She occasionally shared her findings with officials from the DNC and Clinton’s campaign
January 2016 – Chalupa informs a senior DNC official that she feels there is a Russia connection with the Trump Campaign.
Chalupa told a senior DNC official that, when it came to Trump’s campaign, “I felt there was a Russia connection,” Chalupa recalled. “And that, if there was, that we can expect Paul Manafort to be involved in this election,” said Chalupa, who at the time also was warning leaders in the Ukrainian-American community that Manafort was “Putin’s political brain for manipulating U.S. foreign policy and elections.”
March 25 2016 – Chalupa shared her concerns with the Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S.
She said she shared her concern with Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly, and one of his top aides, Oksana Shulyar, during a March 2016 meeting at the Ukrainian Embassy. According to someone briefed on the meeting, Chaly said that Manafort was very much on his radar, but that he wasn’t particularly concerned about the operative’s ties to Trump.
March 29 2016 – Chalupa briefs DNC Communication staff.
The day after Manafort’s hiring was revealed, she briefed the DNC’s communications staff on Manafort, Trump and their ties to Russia, according to an operative familiar with the situation.
A former DNC staffer and the operative familiar with the situation agreed that with the DNC’s encouragement, Chalupa asked embassy staff to try to arrange an interview in which Poroshenko might discuss Manafort’s ties to Yanukovych.
While the embassy declined that request, officials there became “helpful” in Chalupa’s efforts, she said, explaining that she traded information and leads with them.
Chalupa said the embassy also worked directly with reporters researching Trump, Manafort and Russia to point them in the right directions.
So, here’s how it works:
Manafort works closely with corrupt Putin-proxy, Yanukovych.
Ukrainian-American DNC Lawyer Alexandra Chalupa starts investigating Manafort as early as 2014 (This possibly just a pretense/cover for her).
Manafort gets planted into the Trump in 2015 by Tony Podesta.
Oh gee-whiz, look, Chalupa just happens to share her info with the DNC and the Kremlin-aligned Ukrainian government.
The DNC hires Fusion GPS for “opposition research” purposes.
(Remember – Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS, and passed their research on to Bruce Ohr, ADAG at Loretta Lynch’s DOJ at the time).
(Also remember that it’s now come out that Fusion GPS is a CIA front-group).
The DNC hires Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussman.
Michael Sussman hires Crowdstrike to look at the servers and get them to say “The Russians diddit.”
Fusion GPS hires Steele (Orbis).
They come back with the Steele dossier pointing the finger at Manafort!
Steele then leaks info to Michael Iskoff at Yahoo! News, kicking off the Trump-Russia collusion narrative:
Carter Page speaks at the graduation ceremony for the New Economic School in Moscow in July. U.S. intelligence officials are seeking to determine whether an American businessman identified by Donald Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers has opened up private communications with senior Russian
This “expose” gives the Obama Admin the ability to issue a FISA against another plant in the Trump campaign, Carter Page.
In the meantime, Iskoff is attending upscale conferences with Fusion GPS and a friend of Christopher Steele’s, Jonathan Winer.
The Page FISA triggers spying on George Papadopoulous…
WHO IS SIMULTANEOUSLY BEING SET UP BY FBI/UK/AUS/Kremlin-aligned #DeepState forces in the form of Mifsud and Downer:
What a profound series of coincidences!
Oh, and McCain is meddling in all this as well. Read the whole stunning article for more on that.
And Aledandra Chalup is the “lead domino” in all this, it seems. Here’s Chalupa’s profile on twitter:
Along with a very odd, pinned tweet she has up there:
Uh…huh. Sounds like code to me, but I’m only a layman.
The Epoch Times would go on to add this to her stub on their big, famous Spygate Infographic.
Perennial good-guy, Sen. Chuck Grassley would send a letter to Rod Rosenstein in 2017 regarding Chalup’s activities as possible FARA violations:
According to news reports, during the 2016 presidential election, “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump” and did so by “disseminat[ing] documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter.
At the center of this plan was Alexandra Chalupa, described by reports as a Ukrainian-American operative “who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee” and reportedly met with Ukrainian officials during the presidential election for the express purpose of exposing alleged ties between then-candidate Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, and Russia.
Chalupa’s actions appear to show that she was simultaneously working on behalf of a foreign government, Ukraine, and on behalf of the DNC and Clinton campaign, in an effort to influence not only the U.S voting population but U.S. government officials.
Aside from the apparent evidence of collusion between the DNC, Clinton campaign, and Ukrainian government, Chalupa’s actions implicate the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
Chalupa reportedly worked directly with Ukrainian government officials to benefit Ukraine, lobbying Congress on behalf of Ukraine, and worked to undermine the Trump campaign on behalf of Ukraine and the Clinton campaign.
…Aside from the apparent evidence of collusion between the DNC, Clinton campaign, and Ukrainian government, Chalupa’s actions implicate the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). As you know, the Committee is planning a hearing on FARA enforcement. Given the public reporting of these activities in support of a foreign government, it is imperative that the Justice Department explain why she has not been required to register under FARA.…According to documents provided to the Committee, the Justice Department required the Podesta Group and Mercury LLC to register under FARA for working on behalf of the Ukrainian government. Their registration was required even though the client, the European Centre for the Modern Ukraine (ECFMU), wrote a letter saying it was not directly or indirectly controlled by the Ukrainian government. That did not matter to the Justice Department because their lobbying activity was not to “benefit commercial interests” of the ECFMU but instead to promote the political or public interests of a foreign government or foreign political party.” The Justice Department made clear that an individual acting in the political or public interests of a foreign government must register under FARA. As such, because Podesta and Mercury were effectively working on behalf of Ukrainian government interests, they were required to register. Unlike that situation where the Podesta Group and Mercury LLC worked for the middleman (EFCMU) and not the Ukrainian government, here Chalupa reportedly worked directly with Ukrainian government officials to benefit Ukraine, lobbying Congress on behalf of Ukraine, and worked to undermine the Trump campaign on behalf of Ukraine and the Clinton campaign.
I don’t know if I can summarize how huge this link is, but let me try:
If it can be proven that Chalupa ever met with Steele (or an intermediary), well… it’s check-mate for Trump against HRC and the DNC.
The reason there are so many FARA violations in all this is precisely because, as #QAnon has said time and time again – they never expected her to lose. Moreover – if they had filed the appropriate FARA paperwork, it would have exposed many of these relationships which are only just now coming to light. The less paperwork, the better, they figured. Trump would lose and afterwards, Cabal powers would become entrenched, making all these “little” paperwork problems conveniently disappear.
But Trump didn’t lose. The Cabal did. And with that, they suffered a catastrophic loss of control. And they didn’t realize how much Team Trump already knew.
I now believe that this is EXACTLY the kind of connection Team Trump is now trying to expose.
Why do I think this?
Jeff Carlson once again fills in some of the blanks for us:
I wrote on the role of Alexandra Chalupa – a Ukrainian-American DNC operative – who appears at the center of the DNC’s construction of information used in the Steele Dossier. The role of former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland in disseminating the Dossier – along with her involvement…
I wrote on the role of Alexandra Chalupa – a Ukrainian-American DNC operative – who appears at the center of the DNC’s construction of information used in the Steele Dossier.
The role of former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland in disseminating the Dossier – along with her involvement in shaping Ukraine – was also discussed.
The name Victor Pinchuk was mentioned.
Victor Pinchuk is a Ukrainian billionaire.
He is the founder of Interpipe, a steel pipe manufacturer. He also owns Credit Dnipro Bank, some ferroalloy plants and a media empire.
He is married to Elena Pinchuk, the daughter of former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma.
Here’s the Clinton Connection:
On April 4 through April 12 2016, Ukrainian Parliamentarian Olga Bielkov had four meetings – with Samuel Charap (International Institute for Strategic Studies), Liz Zentos (National Security Council), Michael Kimmage (State Dept) and David Kramer (McCain Institute).
Doug Schoen filed FARA documents showing that he was paid $40,000 a month by Victor Pinchuk (page 5) – in part to arrange these meetings.
Schoen attempted to arrange another 72 meetings with Congressmen and media (page 10). It is unknown how many meetings took place.
Schoen has worked for both Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Schoen helped Pinchuk establish ties with the Clinton Foundation. The Wall Street Journal reported how Schoen connected Pinchuk with senior Clinton State Department staffers in order to pressure former Ukrainian President Yanukovych to release Yulia Tymoshenko – a political rival of Yanukovych – from jail.
Although exact numbers are not clear, reports filed by the Clinton Foundation indicate that as much as $25 million of Pinchuk’s “charitable donations” went to the Clinton organization.
From a New York Times article:
Victor Pinchuk, a steel magnate whose father-in-law, Leonid Kuchma, was president of Ukraine from 1994 to 2005, has directed between $10 million and $25 million to the foundation. He has lent his private plane to the Clintons and traveled to Los Angeles in 2011 to attend Mr. Clinton’s star-studded 65th birthday celebration.
And to bring it back around…
In addition to being a Clinton Foundation donor, Pinchuk is also on the International Advisory Board of the Atlantic Counsel – an NATO-aligned American think tank specializing in the field of international affairs.
Pinchuk’s fellow Advisory Board members are industry leaders and former heads of state.
Their Board of Directors list is equally – if not more – impressive.
The Atlantic Counsel has been historically active in Ukraine through their Ukraine in Europe Initiative. More recently, on January 19, 2017, the Atlantic Counsel announced a partnership with Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Group.
Hunter Biden, former VP Joe Biden’s son, sits on Burisma’s board.
There it is again, the Atlantic Council.
The Atlantic Council, along with the Brookings Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, were the subject of an unflattering portrayal in a New York Times article, Foreign Powers Buy Influence at Think Tanks:
More than a dozen prominent Washington research groups have received tens of millions of dollars from foreign governments in recent years while pushing United States government officials to adopt policies that often reflect the donors’ priorities, an investigation by The New York Times has found.
The think tanks do not disclose the terms of the agreements they have reached with foreign governments. And they have not registered with the United States government as representatives of the donor countries, an omission that appears, in some cases, to be a violation of federal law.
As a result, policy makers who rely on think tanks are often unaware of the role of foreign governments in funding the research.
Each is a major recipient of overseas funds, producing policy papers, hosting forums and organizing private briefings for senior United States government officials that typically align with the foreign governments’ agendas.
Oh, but it gets better.
Carlson brilliantly exposes who is at the heart of the Atlantic Council. You’re not gonna believe this.
Dimitry Alperovich – the CEO of Crowdstrike that “investigated” the hacking of the DNC’s servers is a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at Atlantic. The FBI was refused access to independently examine the DNC servers. Interestingly, Alperovich’s bio appears to have been disabled.
James Clapper – Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, serves on the Atlantic Council’s International Advisory Board. Clapper was the architect of the report on Russian Election Interference – Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections.
Evelyn Farkas – who famously disclosed the plan to disseminate information gathered on President Trump, is a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at Atlantic. Farkas served as Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia.
Irena Chalupa – does not appear to be related to Alexandra Chalupa (I’ve been unable to confirm and have seen conflicting reports) – is a Non-Resident Fellow at Atlantic. Irena Chalupa is also a senior correspondent at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. She is a former Director of the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS) – the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America’s Washington public affairs bureau.
WOW MORE STAGGERING COINCIDENCES! The Atlantic Counsel is a Clown op dressed up as a Think Tank.
But what does that have to do with exposure by Team Trump and Q?
Two words. Or first names rather:
J Michael Waller unpacked some of the unbelievable history here, showing how far back some of this stuff really goes, starting with the relationship between Greg Craig and Ted Kennedy. The link to the thread is followed by screencaps of the whole thread, for archival purposes:
1) #GregoryCraig was Obama’s White House Counsel. He was recently indicted for crimes relating to his Ukraine work with #PaulManafort. Now is a good time to look at Craig’s career after he helped would-be Reagan assassin John Hinckley get off on an insanity plea.
Brian Cates had this to add:
Thread by somebody who knows what he’s talking about. Walks the reader thru [with some links] how Ted Kennedy & Greg Craig were key players in kickstarting what has become the modern day DC foreign bribery industry: https://t.co/a3QksD6jZR
Are you following this?
Have you wondered how these gutter-trash media outlets have somehow managed to stay solvent all this time, despite falling readership and dramatically increased competition from user-generated content?
Well, you just got your answer.
Astounding, is it not?
Journalists everywhere will be going down because of FARA violations. Heck, you’ll probably see some outright treason charges as a result of this. How many sealed indictments have journos’ names on them right now, just waiting to be unsealed?
Ben Collins, do you care to comment?
Will Sommer, are you ready to face the music?
Just kidding, you don’t even qualify as a #FakeNews journalist. You’re just a vindictive little snotrocket shot from the depths of Soros’ Satanic sinuses.
Okay, but apart from exposing a network, a nexus of corrupt, why did I give you that big Ukrainian history lesson?
Because something is happening in the Ukraine… and I suspect Q-team has a lot to do with it.
Poroshenko just got beaten by a “Ukrainian Trump” in a Presidential election.
And it wasn’t like a narrow victory, either. It was a “populist” landslide winning, 73 to 24.
(Methinks Ukraine had a biiiiiiiit of help with their election integrity this go-round).
This is, of course why, as Rex will point out in a minute, the media keeps deriding him as a “comedian.”
Ukraine readied Saturday for a change in leadership as a young comedian appeared set to crush his incumbent rival in presidential polls, delivering a stinging rebuke to the old elite.
1. Get to know this name : Vlodymyr Zelensky, just elected as Ukraine’s new President. A total outsider from the entertainment industry, voted in on a wave of populist support. The FakeNews snobs are all referring to him as the Ukrainian Trump – a ‘comedian’ with ‘no experience’ and ‘no policies.’
Just a quick update for Rex here.
Joe Biden is set to announce his candidacy tomorrow.
I hear he’ll be wearing his “brown trousers” while standing at the podium, though.
Okay, back to Rex:
He’s right. Zelensky certainly does have his work cut out for him. But if this is what he’s leading with, it looks like he’s ready to step up to the plate:
Vladimir Putin signed decree aimed at residents of unrecognised Donetsk and Lugansk republics Regions broke from Ukraine in 2014 and are governed by Moscow-backed rebels Residents will be entitled to receive Russian passport within three months Mr Zelensky branded Russia an ‘aggressor state’ as he called for sanctions Ukraine’s president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky urged more international sanctions against Russia after Moscow made it easier for people living in eastern Ukraine’s separatist territories to obtain Russian passports.
Even the IMF seems to be turning the screws against the guy:
KIEV – Ukraine entered uncharted political waters on Monday after near final results showed a comedian with no political experience and few detailed policies had dramatically upended the status quo and won the country’s presidential election by a landslide.
Critics accuse the president-elect of having an excessively close relationship with powerful oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, whose TV channel broadcasts his comedy shows.
Zelenskiy has promised not to be unduly influenced by Kolomoisky. But the fate of PrivatBank, Ukraine’s largest lender which was nationalized in 2016, is set to be one of the earliest and most important tests of that pledge.
The government wrested PrivatBank from Kolomoisky as part of a clean-up of the banking system backed by the IMF. However, a Kiev court ruled last week that the change of ownership was illegal.
Zelenskiy has repeatedly denied he would seek to hand PrivatBank back to Kolomoisky if elected, or help the businessman win compensation for the ownership change.
The IMF will also be watching closely to see if Zelenskiy will allow gas prices to rise to market levels. That is a politically sensitive issue and one Zelenskiy has been vague about.
So, basically, the big banks in Ukraine were “Nationalized” in 2016 as part of the ongoing crisis, and ostensibly to “fight corruption.”
Of course, these make the big banks defacto Rothschild banks, and given how much has been stolen by corrupt Ukrainian leaders, we can assume this was more about keeping those dark money channels open for the big politicians, than it was about fighting any kind of corruption.
And of course, as part of this deal came “tariffs” on the little man.
Essentially, in the wake of the crisis, the nation was facing an impending debt crisis as well. So the leaders – who were busy extracting hundreds of billions for themselves – went to the IMF and secured a 3.9 billion dollar bailout loan… in exchange for a set of increasing tariffs on gasoline.
The Criminals padded their wallets, sold their nation out, and mired them in debt and misery, all for an unnecessary bailout that the nation wouldn’t need, had they not had criminals in charge.
Anyway, the loan comes in installments. The first 1.4 billion was delivered after Ukraine raise its gas prices 23%.
The second is supposed to arrive in May, following another 15% raise.
But now, as far as I can tell, it looks like they’re trying to sabotage Zelensky before he’s even in office by LOWERING gas prices, decreasing the cost of gasoline by 3.4 percent, instead of raising it by that 15% they promised.
This is what debt slavery looks like on an international scale.
And none of this would even exist, but for the previous crooks in office!
The kicker: One of those guys who got screwed by his bank being nationalized was the same guy who put Zelensky on TV for so many years. And the courts there in the Ukraine just ruled that the seizure of his bank was illegal. So it’s safe to say the tide may be turning in Ukraine.
And about Kolomoisky, the TV oligarch who broadcast Zelensky’s show… I’m getting real Sheldon Adelson vibes from him, because at the very least, he’s been opposing the right people:
Billionaire Victor Pinchuk is Ukraine’s most renowned philanthropist, spending… - Oct. 14, 2016. By Isobel Koshiw
Other than fellow oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, with whom he has feuded, Pinchuk maintains working relationships with other oligarchs and top politicians, including Kuchma’s three successors – Viktor Yushchenko (2005-2010), Viktor Yanukovych (2010-2014) and incumbent Petro Poroshenko.
Pinchuk was the guy we talked about earlier, affiliated with the Clinton Foundation. If Kolomoisky was opposing him, well… I’m not going to declare anyone a “good guy” or a “white hat” in all this, but, as the saying goes… the enemy of my enemy…
At any rate, it looks like Ukraine may finally have a chance here with their new President-elect, embattled though he may be, already:
“The question now is does he carry through with the IMF? Can he tackle corruption as promised? Can he resolve the crisis with Russia in the eastern provinces? All of this depends on who he appoints to his cabinet and what happens in October,” Truman says.
The IMF isn’t going away. It was never even up for debate during the campaign, so international funding—and its consequences (privatization, lower subsidies)—is not going to come up for a referendum vote under President Zelenskiy.
Russia has been silent on Zelenskiy’s win, saying that Vladimir Putin would talk to him only after his inauguration for some reason. The two countries have been battling each other since 2014.
Washington has invested a great deal in the Ukraine relationship and given that Congress views Kiev as the front line against Russia, it is likely that Trump will be sure to make friends with the TV star sooner rather than later. Trump phoned Zelenskiy on Sunday, beating Putin to the punch. Zelenskiy will probably come to Washington before he goes to Moscow.
Zelensky needed a lifeline.
How much you want to bet Trump is that lifeline?
All he has to do now, is have his party win a majority of seats in Parliament in October, and he’ll be able to set to work on his anti-corruption agenda.
Something tells me he’ll have quite a bit of help on that front, too.
But do you really think Trump is going to walk away from all this, empty-handed?
No, Trump tweeted this out this morning:
Why did he tweet this out? (Apart from trying to inform the normies).
He did it because the origins of the Steele Dossier and the real Russian Collusion are about to go mainstream:
Stunning: European Reporter Reveals Trump-Russia-Collusion Hoax Has Its Origins with Soros-Funded Ukrainian Activist Group
The Russiagate affair began with documents released by groups funded by billionaire activist George Soros, it now emerges. Now it is clear that under Barack Obama, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev worked closely with Soros-related groups to compile opposition research on the Trump campaign. Guest post by Collin McMahon Several U.S.
The Ukraine Crisis Media Center was founded in March 2014 by the Ukraine government and George Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation to give reporting on the Ukraine conflict the ‘correct’ spin. Soros has founded media lobby groups all over the world modeled on Media Matters for American, which he founded with John Podesta after the Lewinsky scandal nearly brought down Bill Clinton.
Leshenko provided this info to Clinton campaign staffer Alexandra Chalupa, as Epoch Times reports, who then passed this info on to Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff. Isikoff broke the story on Yahoo on Aug. 18, 2016, one of the first public mentions of purported “collusion with Russia” by the Trump team. Manafort had to step down as Trump’s campaign manager the next day.
Chalupa also passed the Black Ledger info on to Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, who passed them on to staffer Nellie Ohr. Ohr passed the info on to her husband Bruce Ohr, Epoch Times reports. On May 30, 2016, Nellie Ohr sent an email to Bruce Ohr and Justice Department staffers under the subject line “Reported Trove of Documents on Ukrainian Party of Regions’ ‘Black Cashbox.’”
Documentation regarding the Party of Regions’ Black Ledger “has now seemingly found its way to NABU, the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau,” the e-mail stated, citing the source for the Black Ledger documents as former First Deputy Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Viktor Trepak.
Bruce Ohr then used this Soros-derived info to begin the Justice Department surveillance of the Trump campaign code-named “Crossfire Hurricane”.
On April 28, 2016, Chalupa and Isikoff appeared on a panel to discuss their research on Manafort with 68 Ukrainian journalists in a program called the Open World Leadership Center, sponsored by the Library of Congress, which is closely connected to the Soros Foundations.
NABU and the Obama government were working closely with Soros NGO Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC) in Ukraine, as John Solomon reports on The Hill. When Ukrainian prosecutors investigated AntAC over a missing $4.4 million in U.S. funding, they were told to stand down by Obama officials.
“It turns out AntAC was co-funded by the Obama administration and liberal mega-donor George Soros. And it was collaborating with the FBI agents investigating then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s business activities with pro-Russian figures in Ukraine”, Solomon writes.
“The implied message to Ukraine’s prosecutors was clear: Don’t target AntAC in the middle of an America presidential election in which Soros was backing Hillary Clinton to succeed another Soros favorite, Barack Obama, Ukrainian officials said.”
Lots of familiar names popping up in that, now, right? That’s why I went to all the trouble of trying to explain it all before. But here’s the real takeaway:
Ukrainian law enforcement officials have tried to share their information on collusion between Obama officials, the Clinton campaign, Soros NGOs and Ukrainian government with the Justice Department, so far unsuccessfully, Solomon writes. Deputy Head of the Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Department Kostiantyn Kulyk told Solomon: “We were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States… However, the [U.S.] ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa. She didn’t explicitly deny our visa, but also didn’t give it to us.”
That’s (at least part of) what Trump is getting out of all of this. You can bet DOJ officials have already heard all there is to hear, and are using the materials taken from Ukrainian law enforcement to build and bolster the case against Obama and Hillary and all the other Deep State figures involved in this tremendous mess.
But maybe some of you are still wondering… why Ukraine? It’s a small nation. It’s not a superpower. What is it about this place?
Apart from its location related to access to specific resources… it’s also one of the largest hubs of human trafficking on the planet:
This article first appeared on the Atlantic Council site . Ukraine remains one of Europe’s most notorious sources of human trafficking. Since 1991, more than 160,000 men, women and children have been exploited for labor, sex, forced begging and organ removal, according to a mid-2015 report from the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Since 1991, more than 160,000 men, women and children have been exploited for labor, sex, forced begging and organ removal, according to a mid-2015 report from the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
You’ll recall that Ukraine was ranked as a “Tier-2” nation for human trafficking in Rex Tillerson’s State Department report in 2017:
And if you’ve been reading #CDAN for any length of time, you know that the Ukraine figured prominently whenever he talks about elites keeping/trafficking/exploiting underage sex slaves.
Here’s three examples:
With any luck, that will be ending, too.
Ukraine has been a front-line in a proxy war between Deep State factions for a long time now, and its people have suffered tremendously as a result. Their desire to be free is palpable, and they deserve better. Zelensky is a smart man, though he has his work cut out for him. Still, his position has opened up the door to a new alliance with the US, and the possibility of peace and prosperity for his people.
I know this was a long one, guys, but I think you can now see why I went to so much trouble to try and put this all together for you. When Q says this involves the entire world, he isn’t exaggerating, but sadly, sometimes as Americans, we tend to only see ourselves as this isolated unit on the world stage. That’s a very dangerous view, because even if you aren’t interested in world powers, they’ve very much interested in you. And when you work alone, you’re automatically going to be at a disadvantage against those who choose to partner with others in darkness.
This is about more than just the US.
This is about forging a world-wide coalition of Light.
And I think you see just that much more how much more is at stake now, and where at least some our real enemies abide, both domestically and abroad.
Jeez. All this because I wanted to find the uncucked, original church…
Oh, and before we go, special shout-out to Joe Biden, who just ended his own bloodline by choosing to drag his kids into all this. Smart move there, “Creepy Uncle Joe!”
Hi guys! Thanks for reading and sharing my article today. I know many of you already saw this on Gab (and signed up! Thank you!!) when I first posted, but, after 5 months of basically no income, I’m able to finally accept donations again through SubscribeStar!
Many of you know I previously used Gab to accept donations, and while that was great, the Cabal found a way to axe that pretty quick by systematically deplatforming Gab from all their service providers/banks/payment processors all at once, forcing Gab offline for a quite sometime before they could come back. Unfortunately, the donations system did not come back when Gab came back online. So yeah, I basically haven’t had any income during the intervening five months, apart from a handful of hat and shirt sales.
Still, I streeeeeeeetched what I had already gratefully received, and made it work (somehow) until I simply couldn’t any more! Thankfully, I was able to get my SubscribeStar profile approved and running, and you can now choose to support my efforts once again, if you feel so lead.
There are lots of tiers to choose from, but I really want this to be as accessible and painless as possible, so donations start at $1.99 a month.
That’s like… a gas station coffee.
If you think my work is worth the cost of a measly gas station coffee, consider signing up to support my work. Don’t get me wrong, big donations are great as well, and I’m exceptionally grateful for everyone who has chosen to give in such a manner. But it’s really those steady donations that make me able to research and compile everything into articles like this, to pay my server costs, and to push out into new endeavors like the GreatAwakening group over on Gab.
Oh, and there are some interesting perks, too, available at different tiers, so check it out by clicking the image below:
