A short history of Ukraine from both before & after Nuland screwed the pooch

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 7:39 pm


       I was hanging out in Maidan Square back in 2009, feeding pigeons and playing the tourist, when a local history professor struck up a conversation with me.  “There are three facts that have had a huge impact on modern Ukrainians,” he said.  “First, you need to understand that Ukraine is very old, having first appeared in the seventh century.  Back then it was called Ki-Rus, and it was the birthplace of modern Russia as well.  In 988 AD, Christianity was introduced, as a political decision, because it would served to unite the various tribes here.”
      Then the Mongolians arrived in the thirteenth century.  “Ki-Rus was the last country the Mongols conquered on their way to Europe.  Everything was devastated and it all had to be rebuilt.  Then Lithuanians and Poles took over one-third of Ukraine.
      “Cossacks were men of the borderland and had an ancient democratic tradition, fighting against the Polish empire.  So the second factor here was that the western part of Ukraine was controlled by Poland — and the eastern part was controlled by Russia.  Westerners were Catholics under the Pope.  In the central and eastern parts, the main language was Russian.”  There were a lot of internecine wars after that.

     “The third big factor is the political aspect, the split between pro-European alliances and pro-Russian affinities.  This split has been going on for centuries.  In 1917, the nationalists came to power and declared the Ukrainian People’s Republic, the first time that the word Ukraine was used.  Even though the Republic only lasted a year, it was a beginning.”  Then, as late as 1991, Ukraine actually became independent.

     “After 1991, nothing was working properly, inflation was rampant and many people committed suicide in the face of such uncertainty.  We only got our currency and constitution in 1996.  But in the past 18 years, we have achieved a lot.”
     Given this excellent opportunity, I started grilling the professor further.  “What about economic, political and social issues?”
     “Politicians decide everything here.  From being under only one party during the Communist era, we now have five parties.  But even though they now call themselves democrats, they are the same people who used to be Communists.  Also, as long as you are a member of Parliament, no one can put you in prison.  This sometimes comes in quite handy.  And also you don’t elect members, you only elect parties.  And how you get on the ballot is by buying your slot.”  Same way as in America, especially after that crappy Citizens United verdict.
     “We elect the Parliament for four years and elect the President for five years.  The 2004 Orange Revolution involved a Presidential election.  It had three outcomes.”  With a little help from Victoria Nuland — who cleverly co-opted Ukrainians’ unhappiness with their government and turned it into a pro-NATO coup.
     “Before 2004, all media channels were the same.”  Also just like in America today.  “But now they are more diverse.  Protests were not natural in Ukraine because protestors were sent to Siberia under the old USSR regime.  But ten million people protested in Kiev in 2004.  The old corrupt mindset had been above the rule of law.  We actually thought that the new government would be different.  It wasn’t.”
      People were deeply encouraged by the Orange Revolution — just like Americans were all hopeful that Obama would be different from Bush.  “It’s more interesting now than the old USSR way of life.  It’s almost like going to the circus.”
      “Help me out here,” I said.  “I’m all confused.  Tell me how the Orange Revolution affected the common Ukrainian.”
     “Salaries have dropped 40%.  Less than 1.5% are extremely rich.  12% are middle class.  Over 80% are below the poverty level.  Don’t judge Ukraine by the high standards of Kiev.  Not all of Ukraine looks like this.”  Sounds like America too, especially after the past 735 days of being helplessly locked down.
     “Not everyone here adheres to the rule of law now either.  A city council member got drunk and killed people last year.  The newspapers say that the investigation is ongoing….  Which means that nothing will happen to the corrupt ones.  Some politicians feel that they are un-punishable.”  Sounds like Gates, Schwab, Big Pharma, Trump, Biden and Fauci in 2022.
     “Ukraine also has a central bank.  It’s supposed to have a free market as well but there is much regulation.  The income tax is now 15%.  We also import more than we export and buy more than we sell.”  Sounds like America today too.  “Most people here also go into debt.  The interest rate is 13%.  Metallurgy, chemistry and agriculture are the main industries here now.  Hopefully, Ukraine will start to be the breadbasket of Europe again.”
     “What about social issues?”
      “We have great educational facilities but not any meaningful jobs are available after you get out of school.  And sometimes the knowledge we gain there is not relevant, didn’t give me the job know-how that I needed.”  Ivory tower problems.  Sounds familiar.
     “Education and healthcare are the two excellent services that we inherited from the Soviet Union — but they still work only according to the national budget.  Doctors and teachers are two of the lowest-paying jobs in Ukraine.  Every five years doctors have to prove their qualifications.  It is not a very desirable profession.”  And the doctors in Ukraine also make house calls!  “Hospitals are free but patients may be asked to buy their own medical supplies — and hospital food is terrible.
     “Unemployment is low, 5% approximately, but most jobs are low quality and offer low pay.”  Sound like where the United States is headed too, lucky if you can get a job at McDonalds.  “But the crime rate is also low.  Most victims are non-Ukrainian.”

       I shook the professor’s hand and offered to buy him dinner.  The food at a nearby restaurant was crappy but the professor made for good company and I learned much more about Ukraine, Babi Yar, Chernobyl, the legendary Rabbi Nachman, Hasidic Jews’ annual pilgrimage to the Baal Shem Tov’s grave, local wedding customs, the infamous WW II Nazi occupation and other interesting stuff.

PS:  Here’s a fun trivia fact for next time you’re on Jeopardy.  Because The Ukraine literally means The Borderland, it’s grammatically okay to still call it that just as The Russia means The Oarsmen — so you can call it The Russia too. 


In 2022, Americans should be far more sophisticated than they are.
And Whitney Webb nails it again.  Beware the technocrats who plan to gobble us up.

Ukraine: Fun with False Flags

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 3:07 pm


     “If only we can convince the American people that the Russians have just bombed a maternity hospital….”  Doesn’t sound all that hard to do.  Remember how they convinced America that Saddam Hussein was stealing incubator babies?  We can do this.  Let’s wag that dog!
     “If only we can convince the American people that Putin had just bombed Chernobyl….”  Shouldn’t be that hard to do.  Americans still believe that Bush and the Saudis had nothing to do with the Twin Tower bombings — despite all that evidence to the contrary.  Our finest hour.

     “If only we could make America believe that Ukraine is a democracy and not some Nazi supremacist snake pit….”  We can do that.  If they could convince Americans that some poor peasants in black pajamas defending Vietnam from evil colonialists were actually a threat to the entire free world, we can do it again!
      “If only we can sucker Americans into believing that Ukraine is under threat from biological weapons?”  Piece of cake.  We’ve already convinced Americans that our COV$D bioweapon, one with a 0.02% death rate that mostly kills people over age 80 with multiple co-morbidities and/or who are given Remdesivir, is scary enough to close down our entire society for two whole years and to jab our children with an experimental injection that has a 1 in 25 chance of injuring or killing them, right?  We’re on a roll here.

     “Give us a few hours of airtime on the evening news and we can convince Americans of anything.”

Here’s another interesting point of view regarding the Ukra$ne situation:
But the Evil Globalist Bastards have not been having an easy time of it lately.  Push-back against their agenda is making them sort of displeased.
There’s even been several criminal investigations into the COV$D lock-down (welcome to Day 731 of the lock-down)  Grand Jury Day 4 | English
Dr. David Martin is suing a whole bunch of people for being Bad Actors with regard to COV$D:

Test-to-treat: Big Pharma’s latest scheme to price-gouge us for COV$D meds

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 4:50 pm

      Let’s pretend that you are a medical doctor, a family practitioner, just a local MD who wants to save lives. 

     Let’s pretend that is spring of 2020.
     Now let’s pretend that you’ve told all your COV$D patients that “early treatment saves lives,” gave them all prescriptions for crucial anti-virals like Ivermectin and then happily watched as almost all of them recovered.
      And after you have proudly accomplished all this life-saving goodness, would the result also be that you now run a very high risk of losing your license to practice medicine in the United States?  Duh, yeah.

      Fast-forward two years.  Bootleg Ivermectin is still (illegally) saving lives.  The prospect of receiving eternal booster shots for the rest of our lives has become a favorite target for satire.  One in 25 vaccinated Americans have already suffered adverse side effects and/or death as a result of these shots.  Many Americans are finally starting to listen to real-time data, ignore the lock-downs, toss out the masks, protest the mandates, boycott the jabs and get over the fear.  Big Pharma is starting to lose money.  Pfizer stock has just hit a scary new low on Wall Street.

     What to do?

     In a panic, Big Pharma suddenly starts running adverts on TV that scream at us, “Early treatment saves lives!”  Suddenly Big Pharma finally figures out how to price-gouge anti-virals!  Test-to-treat becomes an actual thing — the only difference being that while Ivermectin has almost no side effects, Big Pharma’s anti-virals have a list of side effects as long as your arm.  Oh well.  If you ain’t sick, then drug companies don’t make any money.  Side effects are their friends.

     Now let’s pretend that you finally get your medical license restored, now that the use of anti-virals is suddenly in vogue.  But you will have to pretend — because it ain’t gonna happen in real life.

And the evening news is also happily lying to us about Ukraine as well.  Yeah those “patriotic victims of Russian aggression” really are neo-Nazis (and our Evil Globalist Bastard overlords are laughing at both Ukraine and Russia — and us — as the EGBs come out winners once again):
     And if it is so easy to cancel all of Russia’s credit cards, bank accounts, internet access, etc. then just think how easy it will be to cancel yours and mine too.  Piece of cake for the EGBs!
Good grief!  Those jabs really do change our DNA!  Does this mean that most Americans are now GMOs?  Yuck!

Whoa!  When forced to reveal the side effects of its jab, Pfizer produced a list that is nine (9) pages long
Guess what, CDC?  “Hoping” is Just not the same as good science:

Where are the photos of Palestinian child victims of aggression?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 7:07 pm

      The evening news shows us a video of a sweet little Ukrainian girl.   “She is a cancer patient and her medication is running out,” the broadcaster tells us.   What about all the sweet little PALESTINIAN girls whose cancer medication has already run out?  What about all the sweet little SYRIAN girls whose cancer medication has already run out?

      What about all the sweet little IRAQI girls whose cancer medication has already run out?  What about all the sweet little YEMANI girls whose cancer medication has already run out?  What about all the sweet little NATIVE AMERICAN girls whose cancer medication has already run out?  What about all the sweet little AFGHAN girls whose cancer medication has already run out?

      What about all the sweet little CUBAN girls whose cancer medication has already run out?  What about all the sweet little LIBYAN girls whose cancer medication has already run out?  What about all the sweet little VIETNAMESE girls whose cancer medication to combat third-generation Agent Orange cancer has also run out?
     What about when your aunt’s cancer meds ran out when she couldn’t pay her medical bills any more?  How come the evening news never tells us about them???

     How come no president in the past 40 years has ever mentioned them in a State of the Union address either?

Ukraine & Yemen: The fairy tale continues

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 1:30 pm


     Once upon a time there was a wicked witch disguised as Prince Charming.  “We must save those poor sweet Ukrainian neo-Nazis!” he cried — as real crocodile tears leaked out of his red, white and blue eyes.

     “But what about Yemen?” asked Snow White.  “Millions have been slaughtered there by the Saudis — and most of their victims have been children.  Not to mention the millions of children who have been needlessly slaughtered in Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Wounded Knee, Afghanistan, Africa, Latin America….”
     “Sorry, princess.  It’s just not the same,” replied the witch, brandishing an apple polished by Pfizer.  “Here.  Take a bite.”
     Then Cinderella spoke up.  “I want to see everyone happy!  Not just the rich and famous.”  
     “Oh you poor simple-minded working-class girl,” said the witch.  “Harden your heart.  Get a life.  Learn to hate — and to fear.  Compassion and Love are emotions that Americans just can’t afford.  You’ve been in that attic with those talking mice far too long.  There is money to be made in Ukraine.  There is no money to be made in Yemen.”
     Then Rumpelstiltskin stamped his foot and we Americans all fell through the Debt Ceiling with him.
NATO worked really hard to get Russia to attack Ukraine.  All that work has finally paid off:
Financial rebellion is far easier (and more effective) than violent revolution:
Then there’s that fairy tale about PCR testing:
Insurance companies have noted thousands and thousands of non-COV$D excess deaths lately.  What’s that all about?
