German Officials: Claims of Russian Invasion of Ukraine Are American Propaganda

More recent claims of 50-plus Russian tanks crossing the border were similarly untrue, with European officials say the only evidence was for a handful of ramshackle armored vehicles crossing the border, and likely not military in origin.

    US officials regularly claim ceasefire violations in Ukraine, and Russian invasions that “no one questions.” Though such allegations have long gotten a pass in the US media, the German government is expressing increased annoyance over what it is calling “dangerous propaganda” meant to sabotage the ceasefire.

    The US claims, officials say, are often wildly inaccurate or unconfirmed. When US officials were hyping “40,000” Russian troops at the border and an imminent invasion, EU intelligence showed only 20,000 troops, and that no invasion was likely.

    More recent claims of 50-plus Russian tanks crossing the border were similarly untrue, with European officials say the only evidence was for a handful of ramshackle armored vehicles crossing the border, and likely not military in origin.

    US officials downplayed the disagreement, saying that “precise numbers” weren’t relevant, and that there is “no doubt” Russia is supporting the rebels. This may finally be the explanation, however, for how US claims of huge Russian military presences never come with any pictures of any Russian troops.

        The US of Israel’s army are a pack of retarded dogs. The problem is that they have control over the public attention, and in order to make a statement that people will hear, I would need to be able to wrest that assault rifle out of little doggie’s paw.

        I recently calculated that the Israeli-American surge in Iraq cost every peasant, man woman and child, in the USA about 3k/year, USD. In return Israel wiped out one more of its targets on its path to a final solution for the Arabian people and a new Eretz Yisrael order in the Middle East.

        I hope this will shed some light on this matter

        Open letter for You

        A short story

        Dear Friends,

        our planet, our civilization, our freedom is in danger. Some of you
        already know this, most of you just started to awaken. The time has
        come, when we should act united against a great evil. I will try to
        explain the whole story as quickly and easily as possible, although
        the subject is big and very complicated. If you think this is just
        another conspiracy theory or a self proclaimed Jesus try to save the
        world, better stop reading now, because this is just not for you and
        you will be upset. BUT, if you feel it, see it, sense it, that
        something is not right keep reading, you might find some information
        along the line which you didn’t know or at least interesting. I’m
        sure there are plenty of YOU who already know few of this, otherwise
        wouldn’t be so many protests around the world. Lots of you protests
        for lots of causes, but the problem is you protest against the
        symptoms not the illness. I know it is hard to figure it out what is
        the fundamental problem, which cause all of our problems, but believe
        me there is a common ground. I will try to explain, this illness.
        Based on the last 20 years observation and research from my part. You
        might even be interested who I might be, but if everything goes right
        you will never find out. Simply because I’m YOU, I’m a Muslim, I’m a
        Christian, I’m a Hindu and I’m a Jew, I’m homosexual and I’m hetero,
        I’m Black, white, yellow, red and everything between. I’m rich and
        I’m poor, I’m YOU and YOU are Me. Hence there is no conflict just the
        Truth.

        So where can we start?

        If history thought us anything, that we are repeating the same
        mistakes all over again. But what if these are not mistakes, but very
        sophisticated ways to achieve the same goal. Slavery, or to not to
        use such a scary word suppressing of freedom. You might ask how is
        that possible in our most advanced and modern democratic world? And
        you are right. It took approximately 300 years of careful planning
        but hallelujah we got there. Another few months and they will sign if
        they haven’t yet the Trans-Atlantic and Trans-Pacific Partnership
        which gives ultimate power to the corporations even over governments.

        Not too late to stop reading.

        How did we got here?

        For
        Us, the modern westerners, it started sometime in the medieval ages.
        Those who wanted to keep their gold or silver safe gave it to the
        goldsmiths. In return they have received a note for their deposit.
        After a while these notes were excepted in transactions working like
        modern money. The goldsmiths finally realised that people usually
        would not redeem all their notes at the same time or withdraw their
        gold or silver, so they started to invest these reserves in interest-
        bearing loans and bills. This generated a very good income for the
        goldsmiths. So they became the first bankers and fractional-reserve
        banking was
        born. Not as simple as this but I don’t want to bore YOU with the
        nasty details. If you interested any further, do your own research
        and I encourage everybody to do so.

        The
        next important step for our story was in the 1760s when Mayer Amschel
        Rothschild
        established his banking business and lay down the foundation of the
        modern banking system with the help of a very old Chinese invention
        from the 10th
        century. So what is the Chinese connection?

        The
        13th
        century was very busy for China, they had a visionary Emperor who
        managed to establish China the wealthiest and most modern country
        that time, also almost bankrupted it. He finished the Great Wall,
        built the Forbidden City, built canals and a fleet which was the
        biggest at that time and managed to discover basically the whole
        world. The Americas, North pole, South Pole, Australia well before
        the Europeans. How did he achieve that? With a little trick which
        came handy for the Rothschilds
        later on.

        He
        established a type of “money” which was used widely since 1000AD.
        The trick was it did not have real value because it wasn’t backed by
        gold or silver or anything real value, but it was decreed as legal
        tender by the Emperor. Legal tender means that there is a law
        requiring everyone to accept this money in the pain of fine or
        imprisonment or even death. The people must except this money because
        of the aforementioned reasons and also because they don’t have
        choice. They call this nowadays FIAT
        money.

        So it required a little tinkering to make a completely foolproof and
        easy system to generate an unimaginable wealth for the select few
        combining the two systems. The beauty of it, is so simple it’s almost
        painful. If you are working in finance you are probably think what a
        bull, because when you were in Uni it was so complicated and
        everything in finance is so so difficult to understand for the
        masses. In a way you are right because if you overcomplicate things
        people won’t even bother to understand it. The core concept is, this
        is a fantastically designed theft. Period. No wonder in the US it
        took 3 trial and 250 years to establish it. The public rejected the
        idea twice, with the help of Abraham Lincoln in one case, but what
        happened with poor fellow? Wouldn’t be surprised if few years on
        somebody will find out the connection and will prove that he was
        assassinated because he opposed this system. But let us move on a
        bit.

        The year is 1913. Early this year US senate introduced the income tax
        to pay the interest after the government borrowing, later this year
        the Congress signed the deal with the Federal Reserve Bank, they are
        the only central bank who could supply the government with currency.
        Biggest mistake in modern history. Why YOU might ask? The answer is
        not so complicated and amazingly clever. They just signed over the
        world to them.

        Federal
        only in the name. But with this little word the common men will think
        it is a government organization. But it’s not. It is a private
        corporation who aims for profit. And profit only.

        Who
        owns it? Some say it is a hybrid government organization ,but it’s
        not. Morgan group, Rockefeller Group, Warburg Group and surprisingly
        the Rothschild
        group.

        OK. But you may ask that, why is this bad for us? It does work and
        everything is hunky-dory. Is it?

        So, where the problem lies?

        The problem is ,since 1913 US always at war and it’s allies as well.
        But why? Because since the Bank makes profit on supplying the
        government with money, its main interest is to supply the government
        as much money as possible. What is the most expensive thing to
        maintain? War. To prepare, to maintain and after help to rebuild. And
        in the sideline after you rebuild the place you set up the new and
        loyal central bank as well, who operates the same way and owned by
        the same people. And they’ve developed a fantastic skill set to start
        various wars for various reasons. Of course always in the name of
        democracy.

        Started
        with WWI, which have served a very important purpose. That time in
        Europe there were two very powerful empire. The Ottoman and the
        Austro-Hungarian Empire, which were strong enough to block if wanted
        the implementation of this new central banking system. But after the
        war both of them were dismantled. WWII had a different purpose,
        establish a new country and give a fantastic new control tool for use
        and prevent certain criticism while making extremely lots of money. I
        was always wondering how come Adolf Hitler choose Eva Braun? Or Eva
        Braun choose Adolf Hitler? Is it a coincidence? In banking and
        politics there is no such thing. Who gave the money to Hitler in the
        first place? Which Banks?

        You can find the answers in libraries, internet and just try to think
        logically.

        So this is still OK, but this won’t effect us. You might say. But
        really that is what you think?

        Let’s go a bit further. After with the help of the Marshall aid,
        Europe was rebuilt so as Japan the first stronghold for the central
        bank in the Far East. US needed more wars for the bankers, so they
        created some more. It was very convenient, Communism was in full
        blast so they didn’t really need to create enemies, that was already
        sorted. As I see it the same people invented Communism who invented
        Capitalism/Democracy for testing purposes. Communism didn’t work
        because it was an obvious oppression. People want the illusion of
        freedom and they didn’t have it. Capitalism/Democracy therefore the
        best ever invented slavery, because you actually think that you are
        free. And until you are not going to question the system or don’t
        think too much you are “free”. You go to school, you go to work,
        you buy more or less everything on credit, you let yourself robbed
        every now and then by a credit crunch. And you work and work and work
        and slowly , slowly surrender every right you had. With a little help
        of course. By the way credit crunch also a fantastic tool to
        centralise wealth and resources, basically bringing everyone under
        one big umbrella. Banks, media, food industry and everything between.

        But
        let’s go back to history. The strange thing with these wars that
        almost every one of them was not-winnable or not-meant-to-win war.
        But after the last few pages probably you are not really surprised.

        There
        is a very important date emerge from the abyss of confusion. 1963.
        Something happened which required a tremendous amount of courage and
        sacrifice. John F. Kennedy. June 4th
        executive order 11110. He stripped the Federal Reserve Bank the right
        to supply the government with money, in the same time he wanted to
        finish Vietnam war. These two acts in the same time would have
        finished off the F.R.B. He even printed new notes -collectors items
        now-, using the government’s silver reserves. And we all know what
        happened next. A statement, that is why it was so public. It was a
        statement for every wannabe presidents to not to question or dare to
        change this system. Straight after this, Johnson reinstated the deal.
        Although until today no US president amended, repealed or superseded
        this executive order with any subsequent one. Plainly speaking this
        is still valid. Which means the last almost 60 years of financial
        activity including wars based on lies, are illegal. This is a crime.
        Not to mention the people who were assassinated. Gandhi, JFK, MLK,
        Malcolm X, John Lennon, Bobby Kennedy etc. The common factor is all
        of them told us to love each other, respect each other and NO WAR.
        And the way how they were killed is strangely follow a pattern. So
        you really think everything is cool?

        It is time for a break, but don’t despair not long now.

        Next
        important date. I think you might have guessed it right. Yes 9/11.
        Now this is when WWIII started. This is the last big war. The only
        thing, it is against everybody. And the battlefield is all around
        us. It is even in your home see it or not. It is against the 99%.
        You say this is against the evil Muslims. I say no. But why? First of
        all think logically. As paranoid nation as the US how is that
        possible that this could have happened? I could understand the first
        plane, but the others? How the towers have collapsed… And in the
        middle of the panic the American people willingly surrendered most of
        their rights. Also after this event they just created the best ever
        invented enemy. Terrorists. Basically endless amount of invisible
        threat who you can fight till the end of time. And today maybe the
        Muslims, but tomorrow can be anyone. You, You or You. Just because
        you don’t agree with Monsanto, or you don’t agree that shortly you
        need to pay for you basic right, water. So from now on anybody can be
        a terrorist. Last year Obama had a speech he said he will bring war
        on terror back home. And remember just one thing one’s terrorist is
        someone else’s freedom fighter. Well, good luck.

        So now it’s time for a summary.

        You still think everything is all right? And it will not effect us?

        And this is just the peak of the iceberg. This system is working.
        Deceit, diversion, lots of lies and even more diversion. They keep
        you on the edge. Ebola, Ukraine, Aids, inflation (another type of
        tax, invisible kind) and lots of war and lots of terrorists. But you
        are free. Do you feel free? Or are you going to wait until the police
        is in your house for no particular reason or you loose everything in
        another artificial credit crunch. Or you will get another cancer
        because of the GMO crap you put into your body. In the last 114 years
        an estimated 216000000 died because of wars. People are dying every
        day of starvation, lack of clean water. And all of this man made. Do
        you really want them get away with this? Without this dirty money
        there is no poverty, no hunger, no stress, no inequality. It is time
        for a change. Money is a very old, and primitive way of dealing with
        each other. Money is the reason why we destroying the planet. Let me
        ask you a question. What are we going to do after there is no fresh
        water, no real food, no trees to clean our air?What are we going to
        buy with all of that rubbish? Can we eat it? Can we drink it? Can it
        clean the air? And the solution is there, but we are not using it
        because it’s not profitable enough. And they call it good business? I
        call it an extremely primitive way of thinking. If you want to live
        on the rubble of our planet, where going to the forest is just a
        fading dream, drinking a glass of real water is unimaginable and
        eating proper food is the past, don’t do anything. Sit on your sofa,
        watch telly and get fat. And don’t forget you leave this planet to
        your children. Do you want them suffer?

        And the beauty of this you can still suffer in your lifetime. So get
        up and do something about it. Research, pull yourself together and go
        out to the street. Protest until you being heard. Protest until you
        change yourself and the system. Get rid of you credit even if it’s
        hard. Stand up for yourself. And start sharing. Share your resources,
        share your services. You will be amazed. With this we can reduce the
        need for money, we can eliminate the use of money in the long run.
        And we can live a better life, where people are doing what they like,
        what they are best at. Imagine the possibilities. How far we humans
        could go. Together… with the planet.

        I don’t expect YOU to believe this. I expect , YOU to do your own
        research thoroughly and I expect YOU to make up your mind. The
        direction is here, we just need to unite and act until it’s not
        late!!!!

        And
        remember, remember the 5th
        of november… SEE you on the streets 05/11/2015

        This is the end???? or a new beginning???? It’s up to YOU, it’s up
        to US…

        Yours sincerely: YOU

        1, Break up relationship NATO with Russia.
        2. Break up close economic ties with EU & Russia
        3. Weaken EU economy !
        All these to strengthen US Dollars and herding scared European Investors to move their funds to USA for safe harbour. Look at Dow Jones at 18,000+ points

        Doesn’t this remind you of Nazi’s in 1938? Protection the Sudeten Germans from Czechs.
        “It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was wanted and provoked solely by international statesmen either of Jewish origin or working for Jewish interests. Nor had I ever wished that after the appalling first World War, there would ever be a second against either England or America.” – Adolf Hitler, April, 1945.

          Only this time it is between nuclear equipped nations, but I do believe it is only posturing as the only thing left driving the US economy is the military industrial complex.Without the guns of war the economy of the US would fall apart.This is the sad situation that we are in.The only way out of this is for the masses of the people of the world to wake up to these facts and demand an end to madness of war posturing.
          There are other means of restructuring economies in the works .The old ways are gone and can never be brought back.

            Wow!
            In my country, when someone speaks so much truth and frankness, we say: “you can be in silence for 100 years”, because what you have said will suffice for the rest of your life. Well said. The whole world can see it clearly. European leaders are just puppets. They should be freaking out because they know, better than anyone, the misery of war. Noone has to tell them.

            I agree and disagree at the same time. World peace is a wonderful thought, however we in America have too many warmongers that are lining their pockets at the expense of our people. They don’t care how many lives are lost on both sides of the fence because they want to keep their power and money. The answer is not a NWO if that is what you were implying. The old ways are in fact going to have to go but other than what i see in Putin I don’t have the answer. I think that when BRICS Banking system goes into effect later this year the USA is going down the toilet.

            • blueskyonrainydays

              The NWO order that you point out Jim,is planned to be run by the same people that are destroying the planet as we speak ,as I am sure you know.I do believe you are probably correct ,the world that depends on the dollar will ultimately collapse .A new world awaits us all . If one stands very still ,one can see it ,manifesting amongst the chaos .We are all in this together .By the way ,if you are a fan of Edgar Cayce ,he predicted the new world coming out of Russia.Not sure if this is true but what we are witnessing is very interesting.Thank you for your comment.

              • D.D

                The NWO coming out of Russia is correct when you research the mass immigration from Eastern Europe in the 1800’s to America with their socialist/communist ideals and the “religious”beliefs of those people and how a large number of them ingratiated themselves into power in government and various organisations.

                • blueskyonrainydays

                  You are referring to the Khazars that immigrated aren’t you?

            “The old ways are gone and can never be brought back.”

            Wrong.

            http://reset.me/story/hemp-supercapacitor/

            Not only are the old ways not gone, they’re not even dying.

            But of course, new problems do not mean that the past had the answers. Rather, the old ways will use new tools to achieve old ends.

            If we want to take out the military-industrial complex, we need exactly three things:
            1.) An open-source-designed 3-D printer that can create both computers and itself.
            2.) An open-source computer operating system that can run a 3-D printer. (Linux + software.)
            3.) A small factory, one 3-D-printable from parts one and two, that can convert cellulose, sugar, or other simple organic compounds into the plastics needed to create parts one and two.

            If we can bring these three things together into a single system, it will mean the absolute and irrevocable
            end of centralized authority, for the foreseeable future and perhaps
            for all time. The military-industrial complex has gained power only because it owns the means of production for virtually everything; but that was not the case back in the days when people were in the habit of producing everything in their own hometowns. If we want to fight this power, we have to remove that power’s source.

            The military-industrial complex can afford to produce expensive goods like soldiers and jet fighters only when it has the economic input of the entire consumer market at its back. If we can put the means of production of every modern convenience back into the hands of the people, we would be knocking the feet out from under Leviathan, making war unprofitable.

            (The particular suggestion that hemp may be useful for supercapacitor production suggests that legalization of the plant Cannabis sativa may be the single most important issue of our time. [With the possible exception of climate change.])

            As to war in particular, martial artists have long known that you don’t defeat an enemy by taking its punches head-on. You defeat an enemy by redirecting the force of its blows. To win this war, we need to explicitly avoid wasting force in opposing our enemy. Instead, we need to put our entire force of passion into redirecting the enemy sideways; because the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

            I don’t think it’s an accident that open-source Local Motors is based in Phoenix, that the hemp scientists are based in Alberta, and that the 3-D printers of the Urbee are based in Winnipeg and Minneapolis. These areas all fall outside the traditional centers of North American power; it is only fitting that they should be the ones to provide the tools of traditional power’s downfall.

            But we should be careful of one other thing too; the NSA, the intelligence apparatus, and particularly its massive data collection center in Utah. It’s fairly obvious that their center is not going to simply collect data; it will also have the computing power to analyze that data. They have gone into the desert in order to hide better, and avoid attracting attention, and if they fit the puzzle pieces together, they may pull strings to defund the research initiatives that threaten their existence.

            If the frontier west gets fully-tamed before the seeds of decentralization can bear their first fruits, we will have to look to those souls who escape the planet entirely; Mars in particular will demand the development of self-sustaining and decentralized technologies, and so their developments will be of much use to whatever anti-imperialists remain earthbound.

          Agreed. The world is waking up to the Zionist powers that give the U.S. its marching orders. I wish my fellow Americans would turn off the Entertainment & Sports long enough to research this. I am tired of seeing my brothers wit prosthetic legs & hearing of the deaths of others. Why must American blood be spilt? We are complicit as a nation. As long as our people are somewhat comfortable they won’t question the status quo. I am afraid we will all have to answer for our indifference someday.

            James,sadly it isn’t just American blood that has and continues to be spilled for the tribe’s cause although I believe you guys have been lied to much more than we in the UK and Europe because of the people in charge of your education system.

          Amen brother. Finally someone else who has done their research like myself on these Khazarian Jews. History is repeating itself. Again thanks

          Thankfully there are more and more people by the day doing the research and realising how much we have been lied to regarding WW2.
