If the name Victoria Nuland sounds familiar, that’s because she’s the one who changed the talking points on the Benghazi E mails which mentioned the Al Qaida connection, and was one of the many in the Obama administration who knew the truth of the terrorist attack which left 4 Americans dead- yet blamed it on a video.
John McCain however is known to nearly everyone. Once a long time ago, he was considered a “Maverick”, but now he’s nothing but an old fool, acting as Obama’s lap dog and seeking to make his legacy by taking selfies and photo ops with terrorists.
It seems that McCain and Nuland have teamed up since last December to back the neo Nazi Svoboda Party in the Ukraine. It’s was reported this past December that McCain went to Kiev and was photographed many times with Oleh Tyahnybok who is the leader of the Svoboda party, which was founded in the early 1990s as the Social National Party of Ukraine, and their first symbol used is very similar to the swastika once used by another famous National Socialist party, better known as the Nazi party.
To be fair, the party in power now did split from that far right wing faction, but what about the leader, Oleh Tyahnybok? While he has said in the past, that “We are not against anyone, we are for ourselves” he has had to reassure people that the Svoboda is not racist, xenophobic or anti-Semitic – just pro-Ukrainian. He was even voted Person of the Year by readers of the country’s news magazine, Korrespondent in 2012
Yet this is the same guy that when he was a member of Ukraine’s Parliament in 2004, he was kicked out for a speech in which he described Ukrainians during World War 2 as bravely fighting “Muscovites, Germans, Jews and other scum” and referred to leaders in Ukraine as “Jewish-Russian mafia”. The New York Times reported in Nov. 2012 that after his public signing of an open letter to President Yushchenko and others demanding an end to “criminal activities of organized Jewry in Ukraine” and other ethnic epithets, he was charged by the general prosecutor with inciting ethnic hatred. The charges were dropped however, yet plenty of evidence still supports the charges that he has honored Nazis and Nazi sympathizers as “heroes”.
Back to recent news, with the uprising in Ukraine, what was McCain’s and Nuland’s involvement and why? As for McCain, it seems that he traveled there and gave the typical stern warning in a speech against the Ukraine government using violence against the protestors. He met with government and opposition figures, but gave his endorsement to the pro-Europe protesters. The history of the uprising in Ukraine goes deep, and while some want to see the Ukraine as part of the European Union, some have a hatred for Russia, remembering the brutal dictatorship under Communist USSR, yet still others love Russia.
Regarding the Svoboda Party’s intent, they claim that they are pro Ukraine and nothing more. Apparently McCain believes them as standing with Fatherland leader, Vitaly Klitschko, along with Oleh Tyahnybok, he stated, “Those brave men and women should know that they are not alone. Their friends across the world stand in solidarity with them.”
It may be, but Jews were not feeling the same love McCain was. As they feared violence on behalf of young people wearing swastika like symbols, many Jews across the country cancelled Hanukkah festivities and celebrations.
As for Victoria Nuland, a speech given by the now Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian Affairs, to the International Business Conference at Ukraine in Washington at the National Press Club on December 13, of last year, she told of her meeting with President Viktor Yanukovych which lasted for more than 2 hours. She talks about the uprising and the security forces actions against the demonstrators on December 10th, then on the 11th of her meeting with the President saying, “It was a tough conversation, but also a realistic one. I made absolutely clear to him on behalf of the United States that what happened December 10th and more generally that what’s been happening in security terms is absolutely impermissible in a European State, in a democratic state. But I also made clear that the US believes there is a way out for Ukraine that it is still possible to save Ukraine’s European future and that is where we wanted to see the president lead his country. And that was going to require immediate steps to deescalate the security situation and immediate political steps to end the crisis and get Ukraine back into a conversation with Europe and with the International Monetary Fund…”
She talks about the reforms the IMF requires for Ukraine and signing on with the European Union, and then she commends the EU for “leaving the door open on the association agreement and continuing to work with the Ukrainian government on a way forward…”
She even mentions that the US has invested $5 Billion in the development of Ukrainian, “Democratic Institutions”
While in the Ukraine, Nuland also met with Tyahnybok and Arseniy Yatsenyuk who is the interim Prime Minister. While the Obama administration was demanding peaceful demonstrations and calling for President Yanukovyc to listen to the people, to work with the international community and show respect for the people, it appears now that the Obama administration through the Assistant Sec. of State Nuland, had been planning to install Yatsenyuk in the government before President Viktor Yanukovych had even escaped Kyiv as this leaked phone message clearly Nuland is heard. She is talking about support for Yatsenyuk’s economic experience, and talking about going through the UN to get support for Yatsenyuk, while saying “F*ck the EU”, and at the end of the message she seems to implicate Joe Biden as being on board, ready to give an “attaboy!” on a job well done once the mission is accomplished.
The fact is Top U.S. diplomat Victoria Nuland meets with Tyahnybok and Yatsenyuk weeks before they were handed power under Ukraine’s new US-backed interim government. And so did John McCain, while both backing Svoboda’s role in the takeover of the Ukrainian government.
Now it’s gotten interesting as Russia has become involved, clearly throwing a wrench in the works. According to Debkafile, Moscow refuses to accept the interim administration in Kiev after what it considers to be a coup d’etat against the lawful rule of President Viktor Yanukovych. For now, the report says, “President Vladimir Putin has not ordered direct action against Kiev – only Crimea, where Russian troops have been deployed to secure the region and its big strategic bases and protect the Russian-speaking majority, a location which gives Moscow the pretext for acting in the defense of Russian speakers or sympathizers in Ukraine at large…”
It also seems as if there is a forgotten treaty which was signed under the Clinton Administration between the Ukraine, Russia, Great Britain and the US, which basically says if Russia invades Ukraine, the US and Great Britain will be bound to defend the Ukraine. Obama has given a ‘warning’ to Russia, saying ‘Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing.”
Excuse the term, but pot calling kettle…
The interim government in Ukraine is tied to neo Nazis and it’s clear that once again, the US under Obama has stepped in to actively aid in the overthrow of a sovereign government, just as they are doing by aiding terrorists in Syria, just as they have done in Libya and Egypt. With the appearance once again of John McCain, is it any wonder why our Senate and congress is not willing to charge anyone in the Obama administration with acts of treason, and now, with direct involvement in the overthrow of a democratically elected government, which may require our already overtaxed military to intervene?
