UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT RESIGNS: JULY 24 2014, AND A BIT OF WAFFLING FROM ...

You may have missed it, and in case you did, the entire puppet regime put into power in Kiev by the USA has resigned, but there's a catch: no one really knows why, except that it seems clear that the IMF imposed "austerity" program was the ultimate catalyst. Here's a couple of articles, the first by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Reagan administration treasury official:

Government of Ukraine Collapses

And here's the link to Prof. Michael Chossudovsky's article:

Collapse of Ukraine Government: Prime Minister Yatsenyuk Resigns amidst Pressures Exerted by the IMF

Roberts summarizes the resignation and possible motivations behind it as follows:

"Today the Ukrainian government resigned. The prime minister Yatsenyuk, or “Yat” as (he is) affectionately called by Victoria Nuland who put Yat into office, resigned along with the entire Cabinet. The parliament refused to vote the harsh conditions demanded by the IMF. I am not sure what this means. Perhaps it is just a tactic to force the parliament to do as the IMF says. Or perhaps Yat, Washington’s stooge, has realized that IMF or no IMF, Ukraine’s economy is imploding and wants to get out of the blame.

"The point for now is that I checked the BBC, the New York Times, and CNN and there is not one word about the collapse of the government of Ukraine."

True enough, when Dr. Roberts posted his article, there wasn't a peep from the western lamestream media, as I also tried to find confirmation. Then Ms. D.O., a regular here, found this:

Ukraine Prime Minister Resigns as Key Coalition in Parliament Falls Apart

You'll notice that in the New York Times' version of the events, the focus is on the separatist fighting in the Donetsk region; there's nary a peep about the IMF austerity program. The only hint at the economic and financial reasons motivating the resignation occurs in the Times' statement here:

“'I declare my resignation in connection with the collapse of the coalition and blocking of government initiatives,' Mr. Yatsenyuk said after two major parties announced they were pulling their support, a step that allows President Petro O. Poroshenko to dissolve Parliament and call elections for the fall."

The "government initiatives"  in the Times' fluff "reporting," however, are made very clear by CHossudovsky:

"On July 24th, the Rada failed to support the government’s bill pertaining to the 2014 budget sequestration, which had been demanded by the IMF on behalf of Kiev’s external creditors. The disbursement by the IMF of the “Second Tranche” of a 17 billion dollar policy based loan was conditional upon the prior adoption of this legislation.

“'The parliament must adopt amendments to the state budget needed to finance our army and also documents needed for cooperation with international financial institutions.[e.g. IMF, World Bank, EBRD]' said PM Yatsenyuk. (emphasis added)"

In other words, no vote, no IMF money; no IMF money, no money for the Ukrainian military fighting the separatists.

In Chossudovsky's report, he maintains that this man, Mr. Oleh Tyahnybok, whom Mr. Chossudovsky states is a Neo-Nazi, will be one of the power brokers in the formation of a new government.

Then there's this admission from a Pentagon official:

US pulling out its Cold War-era plans over Ukraine conflict, top commander admits

So what "old contingency plans" might the US be "looking at" once again?

Well, as the article also avers, General Dempsey made the statement that Russia is pouring military forces into the eastern Ukraine, allegations repeated by State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf. The only trouble is, there's no proof; it's all based on classified intelligence sources and information, which, over course, "we are not at liberty to talk about":

State Dept. accuses Russia of firing artillery into Ukraine, refuses to provide any evidence

Now, if you're like me, you're probably beginning to smell the old "weapons of mass destruction" story that was put out to justify the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

And that brings us to the high octane speculation of today, or rather, or tomorrow, because we'll have to wait till tomorrow to connect a few more dots...

See you on the flip side...

  1. The Ukraine government is a train wreck and the IMF has just encountered “blowback”, seems some of the guys in the Ukraine government read the fine print. So what do you do in a country that is broke, in a civil war, has a downed commercial airliner in it’s territory and the world is watching, well just keep lying of course and think that all this pain will just go away.
    Thanks US foreign policy, John Kerry, John McCain, and the Pentagramaphone for the good will.

  2. Looks like even among the Ukraine puppet regime there were those couldn’t stomach selling out to the Western Loan Sharks. So the most honorable among them force the presto-government to resign. By the way does anyone on this website what to start a betting pool that a convenient explosion wouldn’t happen at the MH17 crash site. The international air accident inspectors seem to be being prevented from reaching the crash site somebodies hiding very dirty laundry perhaps.

  3. There are over 600 “public” servants in DC which are nothing more than officers in the DC corporation. They ceased to serve the public interest shortly after taking office due mostly to bribes, extortion, and blackmail coming from the ABC agencies. This corporation is wholly owned by the central banks and the PTB. It is this corporation which owes our “national debt” not we the people. It would be in our best interest to wash our hands of these leeches and leave them to their fate.
    Convincing the masses on the public subsidies of this, however, will be next to impossible as they would rather be fed and behave like cattle than do anything go help themselves.
    I shake my head in wonder at the stupidity of sending most of our manufacturing capabilities abroad just to save a few dollars at the expense of the nation as a whole.
    Every one of them should be tried for treason.

    1. Back in the early 1950s Ford Motor Company got the award for beat American Company. When presented the award the CEO declined saying it wasn’t true because Ford was not an American Company but a transnational company(owing allegiance to no one except the stockholders. The citizens fall way down the pecking order; way, way, way behind the stockholders.
      When Clinton & Rubin were picked up by a mike still on, Clinton was quipping about nations saying, Nation States are so quaint.”.

  4. Got an email from clarity press inc. yesterday featuring Dr. Paul Craig Robert’s latest articles. The US leadership is pushing for war with Russia using the same modus operandi they have with Iraq, Libya, Syria, and others. All lies as in the other propaganda leading up to the invasions.
    This Washington Consensus is getting to be an ongoing ad nauseam ritual.

  5. Thanks for posting about this peculiar incident and in particular your
    note of a rush to war brewing.

    Frankly I do not see this as “high octane speculation” which is a turn of the tongue, but rather some informed thinking.

    I think that it is going to be very important to do more than connect the dots, or the bread crumbs trailing down the rabbit hole, and to actually take a preemptive stand against World War III going nuclear.

    As such I will say it here: Call your Congressional Representative and demand that they defend the Constitution and prevent World War from breaking out any further. Tell them to do their duty which means nothing other than to Impeach Obama or resign from office.
