Why the Russia fearmongering? It's about Nord Stream 2 and money, of course

While the fearmongering from the warmongers about Russia have reached a deafening level, it's important to look at how the money-based (aka reality-based) policy is trending.
Back in February the IMF stopped giving Ukraine more loans because of the endemic corruption.

Washington trying to start a war with Russia over lies, AGAIN!

A week ago Russian gas giant Gazprom offered a 50% tariff discount for an additional gas transit to Europe. It was a modest gesture for dialogue and peace.
Washington promptly freaked out and made a wild accusation that resembles the Saddam WMD lies.

Nazi insignia worn by U.S. military attache in Ukraine

Pentagon says it wants to eliminate extremist groups from our military. But Col. Brittany Stewart wearing a Nazi insignia in Ukraine is a sign of strength, I guess. Or a sign of solidarity with facists. Or a sign that fascists in our government want to see how much they can get away with.

The insane US strategy of picking a fight with the Bear and the the same a terrible mistake. We've become a desperate empire flailing around trying to maintain our dominance with military might. Recently Ukraine threatens Russia with war. In response, Russia moves troops within its own borders and the US slaps sanctions on part for their supposed hack into SolarWinds.

These are the very people that claim it was Russia hacking the US. What is the deal? I think it is all about oil.

The most important part of it, I think, is Greenwald's focus on Biden's dealing in a $1 billion loan guarantee to Ukraine. I have emphasized his strongest point with bold type, below.

The Only Question worth Asking: whose False Flag was the Ukrainian Airline Crash?

**Update** The Iranian foreign office apparently just admitted it was their missile that shot down the plane unintentionally. While we have to accept this admission as fact for now, there are still many facts that don't add up, including that it took them this long to 'fess up, that after their top spokesperson yesterday claimed it was impossible that a missile would shoot the plane down. There are also many implications not all of which are favorable to Iran.

Ron Paul summation of Impeachment Tyranny

Former Congressman from Texas Ron Paul nails the crux of the impeachment problem, the fact that the witnesses believe Trump should be impeached for changing the direction of our foreign policy, as if he had no business doing so.
