Well the G7, formerly known as the G8 met in Brussels in a big snub to Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President. The morally and financially bankrupt European Union and U.S. have been strong arming Vladimir Putin to force the people of Ukraine to accept the Western installed government of banker Petro Poroshenko. The G7 meeting started off with America’s stooge president demanding Putin give Poroshenko the legitimacy he lacks since the overthrow of the Ukrainian government by the C.I.A. and subsequent puppet election. Accordingto CNN:
Obama warns Russia of further costs if it continues meddling in Ukraine
(CNN) -- U.S. President Barack Obama had stern words for his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin over Russia's actions in Ukraine, following a meeting Thursday of G7 leaders in Brussels, Belgium, at which Russia was excluded.
Putin "has a chance to get back into a lane of international law," Obama said.
But for this to happen, he said, Putin must take steps over the coming weeks that include recognizing Ukraine's new President-elect Petro Poroshenko, stopping the flow of weapons over the border into Ukraine and ceasing Russian support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.
Interesting words from Obama just days after the C.I.A. installed government in Ukraine deliberately killed civilians when government buildings in Luhansk, Ukraine were strafed with bullets from Ukrainian government warplanes. From CNN World:
(CNN) -- Bloodstained pavement, a woman's compact, a pair of shattered spectacles, a single shoe covered in dust were among the debris left by a devastating series of explosions that hit the headquarters of the pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk on Monday.
The carnage was sudden, unexpected. This was the middle of a city, a building adjacent to a leafy square, where civilians walked and worked. Eight people were killed, five women and three men, according to the self-declared Luhansk People's Republic; the authorities in Kiev reported the same tally…
The authorities in Kiev denied its planes had been involved...
But a CNN investigation in Luhansk has found clear evidence that whatever detonations hit the building and the adjoining park came from the air. The tops of trees were splintered, and a series of small craters -- about a dozen -- had been blasted in a straight line, starting in the park and reaching the walls of the building, blowing out many of its windows and spraying the area with jagged shrapnel. That's what appears to have killed most of the victims and injured 20 more.
Yes, the C.I.A. installed government that Obama is demanding that Putin promote in Ukraine is guilty of war crimes against the people of Ukraine.
The pattern of the craters clearly indicated some sort of strafing, according to a munitions expert at the scene with CNN. Their size suggested 30-millimeter ordnance, he said, which is standard equipment on the Su-25, a ground attack fighter, and the Su-27 -- both combat aircraft operated by Ukraine.
It's thought to be the first time that civilians have been killed or injured in an attack by the Ukrainian air force since pro-Russian groups began occupying buildings in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions more than two months ago.
I think it was Stalin who said, “How to make a country happy? Kill all the unhappy people”.
One of the separatists, who gave his name as Oleg, said, "They call this an anti-terror operation, but it's wrong. When they use air force against their own people, it's wrong." He dismissed Ukraine's President-elect, Petro Poroshenko, as "illegitimate."
So was Putin chastised by these paragons of virtue in the G7? According to Russia Times:
‘Bon appétit,’ Putin tells G7 leaders dishing the dirt on Russia in Brussels
Ha ha, I would have prefaced “bon appetite” with “bite me”, but I don’t possess the self-control of Putin.
President Putin wished “bon appétit” to G7 leaders who patronized Russia – excluded from the club over Ukraine – and set conditions it has to meet to restore ties with the West. Otherwise, Obama and his allies threatened, more sanctions would follow.
On Thursday, as the G7 summit was wrapping up in Brussels, Vladimir Putin was asked to comment on what he thinks about the western leaders holding their gathering without Russia. The only comment that followed was: “I want to wish them, ‘Bon appétit.’”
Now, that’s a class act.
This week’s summit of the world's leading industrialized nations became the first in 17 years when Russia was not participating. That comes as the US “mobilized the international community,” as President Barack Obama earlier put it, “to isolate Russia” over the Ukraine crisis…
Putin must recognize the May 25 election of Ukraine’s president, Petro Poroshenko, as legitimate.
“He must stop arms crossing the border into Ukraine. He must cease Russian support for separatist groups,” Cameron stated, providing, however, no evidence for the accusations.
Yes, no evidence for the accusations leveled against Putin by the G7, but there’s tons of evidence of war crimes committed against the people of Luhansk, Ukraine. War crimes committed by Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy “Yats” Yatsenyuk and his puppet masters Joe Biden, John Kerry and Victoria Nuland.
But Yats won’t be tried for war crimes, no instead he will be handsomely rewarded. From Forbes:
'Yats' Wants EU To Nix Russian Pipeline
Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy “Yats” Yatsenyuk has a future as a U.S. natural gas lobbyist in Washington.
Yes, Yats the war criminal has a bright future as a U.S. natural gas lobbyist in Washington.
The man made famous by U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland in February in a leaked conversation with American diplomat Geoffrey Pyatt in Kiev thinks Europe should block Russia’s planned construction of a new gas pipeline. If the new South Stream gas pipeline is built, it will deliver natural gas directly to Russia’s most important customer — Europe — without having to pipe it through that troubling piece of real estate known as Ukraine.
Russia and Ukraine have been locking horns since late 2013, when President Viktor Yanukovych nixed a trade deal with Europe in order to move his country closer to Russia.
Yep, as soon as Yanukovych ditched the World Bank offer of loans tied to deep slashes to social programs, better known as “austerity” along with surrendering their natural resources, Yanukovych was removed by the C.I.A. After his removal Ukraine’s gold reserves were flown to the FederalReserve Bank of New York for “safekeeping” and central banker, Yat’s was installed as Prime Minister.
Protesters in Kiev called for his ouster and he was removed by extra-legal means on Feb. 22. Yatsenyuk immediately took over and the relationship with Russia quickly deteriorated. Yats did as was expected, moving Ukraine closer to the E.U. politically, signing an Association Agreement on March 21 and setting the stage for further economic cooperation.
Putin, looking more and more like the adult in the room reached out to the petulant G7 members offering to meet with the new Ukrainian president. From Raw Story:
Russian President Vladimir Putin held out a hand to the west Wednesday just as leaders of the Group of Seven powers met in Brussels to hammer out a joint message to Moscow on Ukraine.
With Russia banned from the summit for the first time since the 1990s, Putin claimed he was ready to meet Ukraine’s president-elect, while scathingly dismissing U.S. claims of military intervention in the country.
“I don’t plan to avoid anyone,” Putin said when asked by French media if he would meet and shake hands with Ukraine’s Petro Poroshenko at World War II ceremonies attended by a host of world leaders in Normandy on Friday.
Yes, Putin is the adult in the room. He’s not avoiding anyone, and when asked about Obama’s baseless claims that his military is intervening in Ukraine, well I really got a chuckle out of this:
But Putin dismissed allegations of Russian military meddling in eastern Ukraine.
“Proof? Let’s see it!” he said. “The entire world remembers the U.S. secretary of state demonstrating the evidence of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, waving around some test tube with washing powder in the UN Security Council.”
Ha, ha. Yes, the same Victoria Nuland that was appointed by Dick Cheney is accusing Putin of interfering with their puppet in Ukraine.
But the G7 members were defying the U.S. by meeting individually with Putin.
“There will be other guests, and I’m not going to avoid any of them. I will talk with all of them,” Putin told French television TF1 and radio Europe 1.
Putin will hold meetings with French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron in France on Thursday and Friday, indicating a possible thaw.
Yes, I suspect the other G7 members are getting really skittish about the U.S. and their imperial administration’s wars in Syria, Ukraine, Libya and Egypt to name a few.
There was another thing I found interesting that happened this week involving Pope Francis. As you know, the Pope is due to meet with Peres and Abbas for a peace prayer meeting in the Vatican today. So what is Pope Francis up to? From Reuters:
Pope Francis sacks Vatican financial watchdogs
Entire board dismissed and replaced with international anti-money-laundering experts in pontiff's latest reform.
Holy cow! He’s taking on the Vatican bank ahead of his peace prayers. I guess he knows where the true obstacle to world peace lies.
Pope Francis has made his latest break with the past by sacking the entire, exclusively Italian, board of the Vatican's financial regulator and replacing them with international experts, including a former adviser to George W Bush.
In a move widely interpreted as a blow to the Vatican old guard, the Argentinian pontiff announced he was filling the panel overseeing the Financial Information Authority (AIF) with new faces, bringing their predecessors' five-year terms to a premature halt.
Yes, the old guard banking cartel was sacked.
Reformers inside the Vatican had been pushing for the pope, who already has taken a series of steps to clean up Vatican finances, to appoint professionals with an international background to work with Rene Bruelhart, a Swiss lawyer who heads the AIF and who has been pushing for change.
Vatican sources said Bruelhart, Liechtenstein's former top anti-money laundering expert, was chafing under the old board and wanted Francis to appoint global professionals like him.
The four new members of the AIF board include its first woman, Maria Bianca Farina, an Italian insurance executive, and Juan Zarate, a former deputy national security adviser during the George W Bush administration and official in the US treasury.
The others are Swiss philanthropy and non-profit consultant Marc Odendall and Joseph Yuvaraj Pillay, former managing director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
Well that’s an interesting mix. Juan Zarate from the George W. Bush Treasury Department is an interesting choice, but I think the Pope knows what he’s doing. So while the Pope was putting new watchdogs in place at the Vatican Bank, what was old Zionist Joe Biden up to?
From Fox News:
US offering new aid to Georgia, Moldova as West lures ex-Soviet republics toward Europe
Lock up your gold reserves Georgia and Moldova, Zionist Joe Biden is going to make you an offer you will not be allowed to refuse, you saw what happened to Ukraine when they refused the Zionist deal.
KIEV, Ukraine – The United States is offering new financial assistance to Moldova (mawl-DOH'-vah) and Georgia, two former Soviet nations the West seeks to lure toward Europe.
Vice President Joe Biden announced the aid in Kiev during meetings with both nations' presidents on the sidelines of the new Ukrainian president's inauguration.
Both Moldova and Georgia are pursuing association agreements with the European Union amid a regional crisis over Russia's actions in Ukraine.
The White House says an additional $8 million will help Moldova "advance its European aspirations." The U.S. is also sending $5 million to Georgia to help economically vulnerable people living near Russian-controlled breakaway regions.
The aid follows President Barack Obama's announcement that the U.S. will work to boost the military capacity of non-NATO countries near Russia, including Moldova and Georgia.
So while the U.S. is bankrupt and broken, our infrastructure is collapsing, unemployment benefits have been slashed, nutritional assistance decimated, our schools have been destroyed, the military is sick and injured we are told there is no money for helping the American people.
In contrast, the Biden family has fared very well since the overthrow of Ukraine’s government, just ask Hunter Biden.
So while the G7’s man in Ukraine takes Stalin’s advice of “How to make a country happy? Kill all the unhappy people”, Putin and the Pope move forward toward peace without them.
Let’s hope the Pope’s prayer meeting can turn the people of the world against these monsters.
