“In the current situation…” Russians are sending their long-range bombers

They are back!

Not since the days of the missile crisis in Cuba have we seen such defiance from the Russians. But these are different times, and nothing, absolutely nothing should surprise us, “in the current situation.”

And what is this “current situation”? Well, for starters, these are the days when America is no longer respected as the leader of the free world—because the definition of a free world has changed.

You see, “in the current situation” everywhere you turn it is evident that international socialism is in control of entire nations– and their populations don’t even know it. This is called “conditioning”—and the socialists at the United Nations have been working hard at it for decades.

Ex-KGB thug, Vladimir Putin, has the United States exactly where he wants it: ambivalent, lacking leadership and submerged in socialist transformation (Sustainable Development). In other words, a distracted player on the world’s stage, no longer leading.

I’m afraid that this “current situation” will continue to have very negative ramifications for our sovereignty and economy.

Russia’s Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, has stated that, “In the current situation we have to maintain military presence…” As far as Putin is concerned, “in the current situation” somebody has to be in charge. That’s why he is sending his long-range bombers to the Gulf of Mexico.

Vladimir Putin’s Communist friends, the Castro brothers, will surely lend their support… “in the current situation.”

Someone has to say the truth… (Please share it).

Russia decides Ukraine’s future

Opera House in Kiev, Ukraine

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

In my commentary titled Ukraine in the Key of G I covered the tragic reality of Ukraine’s future– and the fact that no matter which way it turns, it will have to choose between worse…. and worse.

Ukraine, which finds itself practically defenseless against Russian military intervention, gave up its nuclear arsenal on December 5, 1994 under the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances– a political agreement providing security promises to Ukraine, by its signators (Russia, the United States, United Kingdom, China and France– the latter gave weaker individual assurances in separate documents).

This memorandum led Ukraine to believe that it would have protection in case of threats or use of force against its territorial integrity or political independence. But it appears that the Budapest Memorandum has not done a bit of good for Ukraine– considering its loss of Crimea and the lack of strong and decisive action by the European Union and the United States concerning the Russian-backed separatist chaos in eastern Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin sees this weakness from the West as a window to assert his power and determination– and reportedly said “if I want to, I can take Kiev in two weeks.”  The recipient of this brutal message was José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, according to the newspaper La Repubblica in Italy.

Meanwhile, Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, is described as being infuriata con Putin (furious with Putin)– but apparently not furious enough to take a strong stand against him.  She is not alone. The European Union is too afraid to rock the boat– given its strong economic ties with Russia.

The following entry retweeted by Ukraine’s Ambassador-at-Large, Olexander Scherba, describes the EU’s disastrous reaction to the Ukrainian crisis:

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 11.47.23 PM

By the way, Ben Judah, whose Twitter entry appears above as Scherba’s retweet, writes for OpenDemocracy– a website supported by the likes of the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation– who are notorious for their support of population control.  If I were Scherba I would be retweeting and quoting someone else. Unfortunately, traditional values and vetting journalists are not priorities at this point for Ukrainian spokespersons, who are desperately seeking to draw attention to the Ukrainian crisis.

Ambassador Scherba laments how Ukraine is being punished for wanting to be part of the European Union, against Russia’s wishes– and how the EU is turning its back on Ukraine. Scherba has stated that the Ukrainian military forces are running out of weapons and are in need of aircraft.

Ukraine was afraid to be part of NATO under President Viktor Yanukovych– so as not to offend Russia’s sensitivities, when Yanukovych aspired to major economic benefits from Russia.

Now Ukraine wants to be a member of NATO– but NATO is not interested– particularly because extending the alliance into Eurasia is considered a geopolitical threat to the economic interests of the United States, the most powerful member.

It looks like the President of Ukraine, Petro Poroschenko, has accepted the fate of his country by not forcefully objecting to Vladimir Putin’s “cease fire regime” proposal. This puts Russia in control of the terms for eastern Ukraine.

How tragic. European socialism is at work– while Russian communism resurfaces through its expansionist agenda.

Will Ukraine ultimately choose neutrality during this “new” Cold War– as Austria and Finland did during the “old” Cold War?

Do you really think the Cold War ever ended?

I don’t.

Someone has to say the truth… (please share it).

… time to read Ukraine in the Key of G.

FASHION CHOICES AND STRATEGY: The difference between Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barack Obama

Featured photo: 10 Downing Street website of UK Prime Minister

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

President Barack Obama’s press conference yesterday was an amazing show of lack of initiative, both symbolically and verbally. Obama appeared at the podium in a beige suit, which is used in the business world to blend in and avoid attention. The social media world was exploding with comments about his beige suit.

Then, Obama went on to say that he still did not have a strategy to deal with ISIS– whom Obama referred to as a Junior Varsity team earlier this year. In the meantime, ISIS is advancing through Iraq and Syria, terrorizing and controlling territories, erasing national borders, executing people en masse and making it practically impossible for aid to reach victims.

On the Russian front, Obama feels that sanctions will take care of Vladimir Putin– but so far, this has not deterred Putin from carving out pieces of Ukraine and swallowing them up.

President Obama essentially left the American people cold.

Today the United Kingdom raised its threat level to severe- and as I write this brief commentary Prime Minister Cameron is holding a press conference.

The first thing one noticed was Cameron’s choice of a dark suit and a dark tie– which in the world of political public perception represents seriousness and power.

Cameron did not have a teleprompter in front of him. Once he got passed the de rigueur “Islam is a religion of peace” statement (has he spoken to the women of Saudi Arabia, etc.,?) Cameron went on to deliver his message with clarity and determination.

Cameron said that the ISIS threat cannot be solved with foreign policy alone, because we are facing violent religious extremism, which is a great and deep threat to the security of Europe and the world, by seeking to establish itself at the edge of the Mediterranean.

Cameron called for a tough, intelligent and comprehensive approach which will involve a generational struggle, and provided examples of the multiple steps that are being taken to keep the British homeland safe, including confiscation of passports, and denial of entry and/or citizenship, to those who present a threat to the British homeland. Cameron stated that he will do whatever it takes to keep the British people safe.

Without question, Prime Minister Cameron’s press conference made President Obama’s press conference look like a Junior Varsity practice session.

The attack on Flight 17: Will this act of war be forgotten?

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Flight 17: the aftermath

The gruesome photos of dismembered bodies and pieces of fuselage scattered over a 10-mile radius near the Ukrainian-Russian border— is a scene from hell.  It is a rather painful coincidence that this horrific attack took place on the 96th anniversary of another gruesome event: the execution of the Russian Royal family, by the Bolsheviks.

The attack on Flight 17 is an act of war– which, according to reports, appears to have been perpetrated by individuals who had access to, and operational knowledge of a BUK, which is a Russian-made, medium-range surface-to-air missile system.

While the Ukrainians blame the Russians– and the Russians blame the Ukrainians, intelligence reports from the United Kingdom and Washington are pointing the finger at Vladimir Putin and his Russian-backed separatist forces in eastern Ukraine.

Barack Obama’s initial disconnected remarks about the plane’s crash (“it appears to be a tragedy“) were quite disturbing– even to the point of eliciting criticism from the mainstream media.

A similar disconnected tone was also noted in a joint statement by the President of the European Commission and the President of the European Council in Brussels.

Approximately twenty-four hours later, Obama did some image damage control by presenting a much more somber approach, demanding accountability and calling for an in-depth investigation of the attack. The Europeans followed suit.

It should come as no surprise that during this international socialist era, both the United States government and the European Union are looking towards the United Nations for a plan to address the attack on flight 17.

What?

The United Nations?

Yes, the same United Nations which has elected Cuba and Russia to the Human Rights Council– but somehow forgot to include Ukraine.

As expected, Fidel Castro came out in defense of Russia.

Yes, the same United Nations which has Russia and China as permanent members of the United Nations “Security” Council.

Which begs the question: how can anyone expect that the United Nations is going to legitimately assume the role of decision-maker and justice-seeker in the act of war involving Flight 17– when it protects and elevates terrorist communist governments to positions of leadership?

Ah… but you see, the United Nations is the “new leader” of the world– and you have been conditioned to accept this as a “global citizen.”

Interestingly, a few hours before the attack on Flight 17, I had published a brief commentary on a decision made by a Dutch court, declaring the Netherlands liable for the death of 300 Bosniaks in 1995, who were under the protection of Dutch UN peacekeepers.  This court decision brings into question the reliability of the UN “peacekeeping” forces– when it comes to the protection of innocent civilians in war-torn regions.

How does Flight 17 compare with other planes brought down by a missile attack, gunfire or terrorist-related sabotage?

What about the United States?

Gone are the days of the United States lighting the way in times of war.  Washington has been weakened and disfigured by decades of corruption and lack of moral leadership.

While the remains of 298 innocent victims, including 80 children and some of the world’s top scientists in the field of AIDS research, lie dismembered in the remote fields of eastern Ukraine, innocent people all over the world will continue to be put in harms way, as they wait for justice from the bureaucrats in the United Nations.

This is the tragic reality of our times.

May this act of war not be forgotten– and may the passengers and crew members of Flight 17 rest in the peace of Our Lord.

Vladimir Putin visits Fidel and Raúl Castro: The Love Affair Continues

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Old flames never die...

Ahhhh, I’ve missed you Raúl.  I’ve missed you too, Vlad.

As a survivor of Fidel Castro’s murderous Communist dictatorship– and as one who opposes the aggressive and oppressive international agenda of the homosexual collective against those who disagree with homosexual “marriage”–- I am appalled at the level of ignorance from those who are throwing their support behind Putin and his KGB-infested Russian Orthodox Church, as a solution to this catastrophe. These individuals are basing their enthusiasm on Putin’s farcical Christian proclamations of Russia as a moral world leader.  

And for those out there who are running out of excuses– NO, MY CRITICISM OF PUTIN DOES NOT MEAN that Washington and the European Union hold the MORAL high ground. Not at all.

Well, well, well. Surprise. Surprise.

Let’s see what alibi the fans of Vladimir Putin come up with this time. These impressionable and terribly uninformed individuals are falling on their knees, kissing Vladimir Putin’s feet and declaring him their new Christian hero– while Putin kisses communist murderers.

You see, it’s summer time– and the Russians are getting restless for tropical weather, as well as for new financial and military horizons where they can flex their muscles. That is exactly what Vladimir Putin is doing. So he headed straight to Havana– as the first stop in his tour of Latin America.

In Cuba, Putin enjoyed the island breezes, as well as the warm friendship and eternal gratitude of Fidel and Raúl Castro– who are just tickled pink to see their old friend Putin arrive bearing gifts like Santa Claus in the middle of the summer– that is, gifts of pecuniary forgiveness and promises to help finance an adventure down an oil rabbit hole, in Cuba’s coastal waters.

The Telegraph reports [information in brackets added for clarification]:

Mr. Putin laid a wreath at Revolution Square in Havana [Havana’s Memorial to the Soviet Internationalist Soldier] with Raúl Castro, the communist island’s president, and later met for an hour behind closed doors with his older brother Fidel, the long-time former dictator.

The visit was far from ceremonial as Russia agreed to write off 90 per cent of the impoverished island’s $35 billion (£20 billion) debts to Moscow and announced a series of oil and trade initiatives with its ally, a staunch supporter of Mr. Putin during the Ukraine crisis.

Vladimir Putin is playing his devout Christian followers like a drum.

On one hand, Putin claims to oppose homosexuality in Russia and issues proclamations about “Christianity.”  On the other hand, he praises murderous, corrupt communist despots like Fidel and Raúl Castro– whose government pays for homosexual men to have sex-change operations– then incarcerates and tortures them when they dare to complain about government oppression. Is this the fulfillment of Castro’s dream for the creation of a “new man” in his Marxist utopia?

But we, too, have a “new man” in our midst.  The one who has emerged from the pews to support a former KGB thug like Vladimir Putin– who loves and supports Fidel Castro.

A Reality Check for Fans of Vladimir Putin and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

I am pleased to provide a reality check for those who are floating around in outer space waiting for Vladimir Putin and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill to shepherd them as Christian warriors.

Vladimir Putin is leading the charge against homosexuality in Russia, while praising Fidel Castro, whose Communist murderous government enjoys paying for sex-change operations (see important related articles below).

HINT… Putin and Kirill are playing both sides.

Sadly, many well-meaning conservative citizens around the world still don’t understand Putin and Kirill’s perfidious game.

Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill are the classic examples of false messengers of Christianity!

Remember… Russia and the European Union are competing for domination of entire regions.  Their goals are the same.
