If you've been watching the grizzly - but still farcical - farce of the geopolitical kabuki theater that is the Ukraine playing out, you may have noticed that President Volodymyr Zelensky of the Ukraine is almost as skeptical of Swampington DC as his opposite number in Moscow, Vladimir Putin. Last week, of course, Swampington announced that Russia might invade the Ukraine on the 16th. Russia obliged by pulling some troops back.

Then President Zelensky did the unthinkable: he asked Swampington for proof:

Zelensky Invites Biden To Visit Ukraine In "Coming Days" In Pushback Against 'Imminent' Invasion Fears

Kiev is not too happy, and is demanding prooffrom US intelligence backing the new dire allegations that Russia is poised to go in:

"There has been too much information about a full-scale war with Russia – even specific dates have been announced. We understand there are risks. If you have any additional information regarding the 100 percent guaranteed invasion of Ukraine by Russia on 16 February, please give it to us," Volodymyr Zelensky told reporters on Saturday.

Naturally, Ukraine's leaders are trying to calm the panic which Washington pronouncements and the Western media echo chamber have created...

Zelensky said he did not believe in the danger of a full-scale war at the moment. “I have to speak to the public with real information at hand. We receive information from many sources. We also have an intelligence service. I don’t think that it’s any worse than the intelligence services of other countries,” he noted.

"We have intelligence services too, and it's as good as yours, America, and they're not telling us the same thing you are... so what's your evidence?"  It doesn't get much more clear than that, and the implication is that the Ukraine knows it is being used as a cat's paw to stir up trouble and perhaps even provoke a war with Russia, a war the USA has already signaled it will not engage in, save to impose "sanctions" on Russia.

As if this madness is not enough, President Zelensky has apparently called Swampington's bluff:

Zelensky is playing hardball, and it isn't with Moscow:

President Zelenskyy emphasized the geopolitical farce when he said to the world if the United States, and as an extension NATO, is so certain that Russia is about to invade and destroy Ukraine sovereignty, then why are they waiting to trigger deterrent sanctions?

Bingo. It cannot be put more clearly than that.

So then, what is this kabuki theater all about?

I strongly suspect it has little to nothing to do with Russia or the Ukraine, and everything to do with the crumbling narratives in the west, from Covid to cyrpto-currencies, to the failure-ridden Brandonenko regime, the fiasco of Trudeau's tyranny, the financial mess of the West, and so on. A war would be a nice distraction, and a cover under which Mr. Globaloney could impose even more tyrannies on the West. So Swampington is inviting war, but no one else has answered the invitation, except maybe (of course) perfide Albion.

Mr. Zelensky certainly appears not to be playing the game. "Come on over, Brandon, and see for yourself..." A worthy effort on Mr. Zelensky's part, even if it does imply the opposite of the truth, and that Brandon would even be mentally fit enough to realize what he was seeing.

So here's a suggestion to the concerned parties: join the growing global chorus of "Let's go Brandon!" and ignore Swampington DC and Brandonenko.  Ignoring the trouble-maker in the neighborhood will probably pave the way for some real negotiations among adults. Think of the implications: it will show the world things can get done without Swampington's involvement, and that's a lesson that will play well not only in Moscow, Kiev, Warsaw, Bucharest and Berlin, but Tallahassee, Austin, Lincoln, Des Moines...

See you on the flip side...

(As I wrote this prior to the Russian recognition and occupation of Donetsk and Lugansk, it is a bit dated... but nonetheless, I don't think the major premise is weakened: negotiate, and leave Swampington out of it, and recognize it's being use to distract from other policy failures...

    As I recall, there was, after the first Gulf War Op, a recognition that the Iraqis were not, in fact, massed on the border of Saudi Arabia as claimed by Bush the First and his servitor house chimps, to enable U.S. bases and stormtroopers into that similarly fanatical and tyrannical country. In all current scenarios, anything still capable of cognition should be highly skeptical…. Also, while keeping in mind the terrible beneficence and, apparently, riddling nature of the Cosmos, I suggest that we should all pray upon the soul of Justin Trudeau….

Eh to sound very stupid, CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT PUTIN HAS TO GAIN FROM INVADING UKRAINE, and that fool Stalltinburg, the head of NATO keeps the ball rolling because he needs to keep his job and in Kiev………ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    • Nidster - on February 28, 2022 at 1:17 am

      Well, just speculation on my part, but if one were to ask different questions, and think outside-the-box…..
      Who stands to lose the most if Russia’s Nordstream2 gas pipeline going into Germany can be stalled forever? The Germans have already paid for the pipeline’s cost, which has been completed, but it is waiting to be licensed. So, maybe a snafu, or some ‘obstruction’ has arisen with the final step. Then consider Germany’s nuclear power plants are at the end of their useful life, and will be decommissioned soon. Hence, Germany’s energy needs are in serious jeopardy of being insufficient, but perhaps they could get a locked-in price concession from the Russian’s if they ‘play-along’. Germany sells a lot of stuff to China, which allows Germany to maintain a very large GDP. So, perhaps a ‘distraction’ was needed to knock Russia’s opponents off-guard. China could take the ongoing situation as an opportunity to seize Taiwan. Of course Bidenese will be too busy with The Ukrainian situation to help defend Taiwan.

      Of course all of these allegations are high speculation. So, to answer your question of what does Putin have to gain from invading The Ukraine? Consider all the sanctions put on the Russian banks. They are now locked-out of the SWIFT financial system. Well perhaps Putin is very happy about that news because the United States has repeatedly threatened a number of countries with sanctions over policies that it doesn’t agree with. One of those countries would be India. Who is enrolled in the Russian system for Transfer of Financial Messages (SPFS). Developed in 2014, SPFS is designed to keep banking transactions running in the event of Western sanctions such as disconnecting Russia from SWIFT, which just occurred. Also consider Germany, France and the U.K. finalized an Instex system in January 2015, allowing companies to trade with Iran without the use of U.S. dollars or American banks, allowing them to get around wide-ranging U.S. sanctions that were imposed after the Trump administration abandoned the Iran nuclear deal.
      So, the question might be asked, “What do the Russians have to lose by not taking risks?”

    The “media” is by far the worst enemy of the people as a whole.
    The media, IMO, is an enemy of the people; and it’s objective is to ultimately enslave us, or kill us in the process.
    There are alternative media sources that are trying to inform the people; in contrast to the mainstream CIA/government backed “media” that is generally focused on narrative promoting globalism as defined by the WEF[World economic Forum].

    For the Ukraine to join the “Let’s Go Brandon!” call; would be the proverbial cherry on top of the geopolitical cake.
    Leave the “incapable of agreement” USSA; and let her NATO war machine, die on the withering destructive vine it embodies.

    Let the USSA try building relationships for a change;
    instead making relationships to simply destroy.

    Zero Hedge article shows Putin and Assad lighting a candle in a Russian Orthodox Church.Assad affirmed that Syria is ready to provide any assistance on the ground.Russians know that Putin is,was and will always remain a person of religious Russian Orthodox convictions.Regrettably the West doesn’t appear to have factored this in their estimations.

  8. Joe on February 23, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    The Russian press hinted at Russia and the Orthodox Church having aspirations of a greater Russia that include parts of pro-Russian provinces in Ukraine.The aims are to prevent any potential Nato expansion that might hinder Russia’s security and to enable Russia greater acces to shipping.The article showed an old map highlighting the potential areas at stake.This would give Russia much greater control of an extended region.

    • Barbara on February 23, 2022 at 10:49 pm

      So far that’s Russia that is expanding at the cost of the Ukraine not NATO. First Crimea in 2014 today Eastern Ukraine has fallen, but Putin still fogs the world with statements, that Russia and Ukraine are brothers with a common history.

        Scythian Ashtanga was originally a martial sport, with stretch exercises, to produce a Parthian shot, in mounted archery.

        Hollywood Ashtanga is only stretch exercises, since the martial component has, since long ago, been castrated in India.

        NATO, as feminist Ashtanga, based on Hollywood, is fundamentally wrong, since Scythian legacy is missing.

        NATO is Vatican inquisition, attempting to uproot the eight-legged Scythian in Russia, the original Christianity:

  9. Richard on February 23, 2022 at 4:09 pm

    Making the ‘pen’ mightier than the sword has certain advantages in eastern Europe. President (Col) Putin probably knows this better than any outsider could ever know.

    Back in mid Dec 2021, or so, during one of your “Nefarium” episodes, one mentioned . . . “It’s an eastern European version of multi-state secession attempt. Both Ukraine and Russia know the value to each other of that “Donbass” region.” . .It still looks that way.

    Putin has the means to bring his form of order and control to that disputed region. In some ways, he and the formerly Sovietszky Slavic state, The Ukraine, and its people also know the importance of the region to each and that it is better intact for each. There may be a ‘joker’ in Kyiv but he’s no ignoramus and is likely to know his people he’s representing far better than any outside presumption to know them better.

    The Minsk Protocols still have great potential and still need to be implemented to know whether they’ll be fruitful. Resources in the region need to be pooled as all the people in that eastern European region still have to deal with Chernobyl and the waters downstream.

    The Party of the east by going west does not seem to understand the cards it dealt itself, either, but insists on worldly hegemonic control which, by definition, include the former Sovietszky’s – north-south – east & west. That’s a sour and still lingering dose in the ole-pit-of-the-gut alright.

    • anakephalaiosis on February 23, 2022 at 5:24 pm

      Scythian party of the east, going west, went through Caucasus, and was thereby named Caucasian, self-identifing as Saxon, derived from Isaac, bound or unbound.

      According to Snorri Sturluson, Norsemen originated from Scythia, who traveled by Russian rivers, and settled in Scandinavia. Of course, Scythians made a footprint in Crimea.

      Reconstructing Scandinavian origin, reveals Scythian mentality, and that includes a cranial cult, that inspired early Christianity, as the cup of the last supper, brought to Britain.

      Backdrop of Christianity is an eight-legged horse, a Scythian stallion, coming through Russia:

    Dr. Farrell, your analyses are always appreciated. Today Ukraine has called for a state of emergency which, to me at least, signals that they have changed their tune and are worried about a conflict breaking out. Where does this leave us? Will it be martial law next? Will a war really happen?

    There will be no war between NATO and Russia, there will be no war between the US and China and there will be no war against any country (at least not yet). There is a war going on against humanity in which all world leaders are playing their part brilliantly (see my earlier posts). That war is all about the roadmap towards world governance and consists of the following phases:

    1) Making the world fear a virus in order to inject as many people as possible with a remote control programmable CRISPR enzyme (rebranded into mRNA), with countries criticizing each other’s policies, but putting China’s crackdown on a pedestal
    2) Shutting down economies and acclimating citizens to lockdowns, isolation and totalitarian measures
    3) Applying the ‘hammer and the dance’ strategy and temporarily giving back the feeling of freedom
    4) Inciting protests (a la the Truckers Convoy) over legislation to confiscate financial resources and property
    5) Trigger hyperinflation through the threat of war and consequently realize deficits to financially exhaust the population
    6)Triggering chaos in the US and Europe, to prepare the population for ‘strong arm’ intervention
    7) Civil War and Israeli Intervention in the US; chaos and Turkish capture of Europe simultaneously

      Exactly right. The whole thing is a vast display of fakery for our “benefit”. More consolidation of power through the destruction of nation states. Russia gets Ukraine and China gets Taiwan. Putin and XiJingPng playing bad cops and the western “leaders” pretending to shoot at them. All acting out their roles with the scripts handed to them by their masters in the Banks and the WEF, IMF, UN, WHO etc etc.
      The whole thing is nauseating.

  13. Marco Fredriks on February 23, 2022 at 1:37 pm

    A good starting point for analysis how the game is played is to research who is all connected to the WEF from Klaus Schwab (or here Blofeld). You will easily find Joe Biden, Boris Johnson, Jacinda Ardern, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau, Xi Jinping, Mario Draghi, Scott Morrison, Mark Rutte and even our Dutch King. The person you miss here is Vladimir Poetin, despite he is also coming out of the Young Leader Program from the WEF!!!! So by not naming him, we can see in the game that they play the West as teh aggressors and Russia (Poetin) as the one defending his territory. It is time again to open our eyes for the reality and leave the painted reality behind us.

  14. Marco Fredriks on February 23, 2022 at 1:29 pm

    Or will it give the US intelligence more creditability??? When 2 are playinmg on the same chess board then this Kabuki theatre is only for us the populace. The 2 players playing together is an perfect receipe to have the majority of us being blinded for what is true or false, a blurred vision of reality and created reality.
    Then not engaging in a war will give a sigh of relief for the Europeans, however the sanctions will include to be cut off from Russian energy. This will drive demand for US gas and oil (see only the LNG terminal in Rotterdam port). which will create demand for the US dollar to continue a few more months (year) further before the roll out of the CBDC is a fact. First we had COVID and for the coming months sanctions. All disrtraction for the Great Reset.

    One of the real reasons for the Ukraine mess: human trafficking. This was admitted by that [expletive] Irish Foreign Minister whose priority is to “get the surrogate babies out”.

      The human exploitation crimes in the Ukraine and other parts of Eastern Europe are sinful and have provided many plot ideas for female heroine Netflix series. But in your comment are you equating surrogacy to human trafficking? Are saying that all women are on equal footing when carrying a pregnancy? Death of women during childbirth used to be common. If pregnancy is so wonderful than if women want that provide that service to another family, why not? Sorry that is a bit off topic, but I was triggered in a good way, triggered as in becoming non complacent.

    The elephant in the room is the massive amount of foreign ownership (including by Russia and China) of expensive, high net worth assets in the West (UK and USA), including property and real estate, sports clubs and teams, entertainment media, infrastructure (eg designs for fast breed reactor nuclear power stations, transport operators). West is too far in bed now and consummated with foreign owners. If it tried uncouple and get out, it would collapse. Hence weak sanctions (lip service rhetoric about being strong, resolute and firm) only targeting a few low risk Russian individuals and banks.
