Ukraine: Behind the Wall of Propaganda

It happened almost overnight. After two years of COVID dominating the world’s headlines, Ukraine seamlessly took center stage.

Like most Americans, I am not an “expert” on Ukraine. But enough information has accumulated to form some conclusions based on a “preponderance of evidence.”

The scenario has been depicted in mainstream media as nothing more than an “unprovoked” invasion by Russia. Furthermore, it was a David vs. Goliad match, and nearly everyone loves to root for the underdog.  Putin was a Hitler, a mad dog bent on world conquest; Ukraine would only be his first ambition. Here is how The Economist portrayed him on its cover:

AOL chose to compare him to Stalin:


The American government’s response was no less theatrical. As with the media, no attempt was made to actually investigate Russia’s motives or to hear their side of the story. Normally, the first step to take, when another country misbehaves, is diplomacy. But there was no effort to negotiate. Instead, the swift response of the United States and its allies, was sanctions, followed in short order by direct military aid to Ukraine.

As we will see, however:

• Since the CIA-backed coup of 2014, which overthrew the legitimately elected President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych (who had refused loans from the IMF), the Ukrainian government has been a puppet of the West.

Russia’s intervention in Ukraine was justified on several premises:

• When the Soviet Union broke up in 1991, it was assured that NATO would not move further East. But NATO repeatedly broke its promise. Ukraine is now a NATO partner, and was scheduled to become a full NATO member. Since Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had requested nuclear weapons, this represented a security threat to Russia on its immediate border.

• As now admitted by the U.S., some 30 U.S. biolabs were operating in Ukraine, many working on dangerous pathogens, representing a further threat to Russian security.

• Ukrainian forces were committing atrocities against civilians in Eastern Ukraine, especially ethnic Russians, and the territory of Donbass had formally requested assistance from Russia.

• Russian forces are moving slowly in Ukraine—not because they are weak (as claimed by the U.S. media) but because they want to preserve Ukraine’s infrastructure and are concerned only with confronting hostile military forces, not civilians. But there’s much more. Hang on. This article will consist of text, graphics, and videos; most of the latter are very short (1 or 2 minutes). I have noted the length of each. The overall video content may make this post slow to load for a few people, depending on their device and Internet connection. If a video doesn’t play on the first click, click again.

The West Has a Short Memory: America’s/NATO’S War History

Anyone caught up in the current TV war propaganda should remember what General Wesley Clark revealed he was told at the Pentagon after 9/11. 2 minutes.

In accord with what Clark was told, the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, allegedly over weapons of mass destruction, which it turned out did not exist, reminiscent of the 1991 invasion of Iraq that was fought following fake news that Iraqi soldiers were throwing Kuwaiti babies out of incubators. That first war was followed by sanctions on Iraq that resulted in the death of half a million children. And who could forget the former Secretary of State, the late Madeline Albright, telling Sixty Minutes “the price is worth it.” 1 minute.

Despite there being no Weapons of Mass Destruction, the 2003 Iraq War continued for about a decade. The irony here is that, while Russia is fighting on its border, the United States, under false pretenses, was invading a country halfway around the world. Yet, as Candace Owens observes, no one placed sanctions on the United States.

There was also, of course, the 20-year war In Afghanistan, which continued long after the alleged 2011 death of Osama Bin Laden (the pursuit of whom was the war’s original pretext). Then there was NATO’s 2011 massive bombing of Libya, which, until then, had Africa’s highest GDP per capita, highest life expectancy, and a literacy rate of 88 percent.1 NATO’s campaign included backing terrorist insurgents, and the country has been in desolation ever since.

Then there was Trump’s launching of cruise missiles against Syria in 2017 and 2018, based on false allegations that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used chemical weapons on his own people. And the supplying of weapons to Saudi Arabia for its merciless war on Yemen, where millions are threatened with starvation.




So we are fighting for freedom and to “protect our national security” when we invade and bomb countries thousands of miles and oceans away, yet Russia is “the bad guy” when they intervene in a country on their border.

I gave a public PowerPoint in 2019 summarizing the deceptions which have been used to bring America into wars, going back to the Spanish-American War of 1898.

As Jesus said, remove the plank in your own eye before you remove the speck in someone else’s. (Matthew 7:3-5)

Putin Speaks/ Russia’s Intentions

There has always been controversy about Vladimir Putin in the alternative media, as to whether he is a genuine opponent of the New World Order globalists or just another actor in their game.  On the one hand, he did play ball with the COVID narrative, and Russia implemented mask mandates and encouraged (but did not require) vaccination. On the other hand, Russia has been in a Christian revival since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, gay parades and other forms of political correctness are disallowed, and Putin has commented in the past on the decline of Christianity and moral values in the West (remarks we would long to see our own leaders say). 2 minutes. (Remember: You may need to click on a video a second time for it to play.)

Putin explains that NATO, after promising not to expand “one inch” further to the East, has broken that pledge, and that Russia cannot have nuclear weapons posted directly on its borders. He asks how Americans would feel if Russia put nukes on the Canadian or Mexican borders of the U.S.  Also comments on Ukraine being separated from Russia by Lenin. 2 minutes.

In this 2-minute clip, Putin, in a Zoom-like conference, elaborates on Russia’s reasons for intervening in Ukraine, including the abuses of citizens in Donbass (an Eastern portion of Ukraine), Ukraine’s resolve to enter NATO (bringing nuclear weapons to Russia’s border) and the dangerous biolabs. 2 minutes.

In the next video, Putin explains that Donbass had appealed to Russia for help and reaffirms that Russia has no intention of occupying Ukraine. 2 minutes.

Putin addresses rising energy costs in the West: their governments are trying to blame us for their mistakes. 1 minute.

Addressing Western citizens, Putin drops some truth bombs. 1 minute.

Putin means business. Russia’s reaction will be swift to those who interfere. 1 minute.

Finally, Putin warns Western leaders to back off of their plan of global depopulation and denounces the lies of the Western mainstream media. I have never seen a Deep State player denounce the depopulation agenda (or, as in the first video above, the decline of our moral values). If Putin is just an actor, I wish we had more such “actors” in the West. 1 minute.

Next, footage from Ukraine you won’t see in the news. A Russian colonel reassures Ukrainian citizens, telling them how to reach safety and aid. 1 minute.

And here Russian soldiers are reported to be giving out humanitarian aid in the liberated Borodyansky district of Kiev. These are cereals, canned meat and fish, confectionery and bakery products, sweets and bottled drinking water. Aid was said to have amounted to about 40 tons at the time of this video.  1 minute.


Russians seize U.S. weapons in Ukraine. This was before the U.S. military aid package that followed Zelensky’s speech to Congress. 1 minute.

The Western media has shown almost no interest in what Putin has actually had to say about the reasons for the Ukraine intervention. His February 24 speech, addressed to both Russians and Ukrainians, has been heavily censored in the West—very possibly because it exposed NATO’s long history of atrocious military attacks. But the full text of the speech, as well as the video of it, can be found on Dr. James Fetzer’s website.

Ukrainian Government: Not “the Good Guys”

First, Zelensky had no political experience before becoming Ukraine’s President in 2019. Before that, he was an actor and comedian. Here’s a sample performance. 1 minute. Another excerpt can be found here.

Col. Douglas MacGregor surprises Fox host, debunks mainstream narrative and calls Zelensky a puppet. 1 minute.

Emmy Award-winning Journalist Lara Logan confounds mainstream newscasters as she exposes Zelensky as a puppet and the corruption in Ukraine. 2 minutes.

From the same interview, more from Logan, stunning the newscasters. 2 minutes.

Ukraine has been recruiting foreign volunteers, but is forcing them to stay when they want to leave. U.S. volunteer Henry Locke speaks out. 2 minutes.

Ukrainian citizens say they were used as shields by the Ukrainian military. 1 minute.

Ukrainian civilians discuss the atrocities committed against them by Ukrainian soldiers, and how the Russian rescued them. 2 minutes.

Zelensky, that great voice for democracy, bans all opposition parties and seizes control of the media—a process that began before the invasion. 2 minutes.

The CIA trained the Ukrainian military for years. See this ZeroHedge report.

Ukraine is adopting Klaus Schwab’s “Great Reset.”

Crimean water supply, blocked by the Ukrainian government, has been restored by the Russians.

Before the war, the media was not nearly so kind to Ukraine’s government:


Fake News

Although millions of Ukrainians have smartphones, the mainstream media seems to have had a dearth of photos to support its claim of a bloody invasion. Here we see six different newspapers relying on images of the same woman.


CNN up to its old tricks?

The images below received over 12 million views on TikTok as a Ukrainian girl confronting a Russian soldier. In fact, it is Ahed Tamimi, a Palestinian girl, confronting an Israeli soldier after the arrest of her brother in 2012.


Images from the video game Arma 3 (as below) were masqueraded as the Russian invasion of Ukraine and received over 100,000 views on FaceBook before being removed. PcGamer covers the story here.

The images below tell of yet another fake story. Airsoft guns are toys used in gaming or target practice.

Anything to get that “no-fly zone”:


Images such as the one below have been widely touted as “Zelensky on the front lines,” but even fact-checkers such as Politifact, which normally parrot the mainstream media, have been forced to admit these pictures are from 2021, before the Russian invasion.

Link (video):

Gotta love the commentary on this one:


Here are voices you will almost never hear in the mainstream:

Harley Schlanger, Vice President of the Schiller Institute, sums up the situation. 2 minutes.

Gonzalo Lira is currently living in Ukraine and has been giving video updates on the situation there. This video, made three days after the invasion, is longer at 19 minutes, but well worth it for the information it provides.

Brother Nathanael, never one to hold back, provides additional insights on Ukraine. Born Jewish, now a convert to Eastern Orthodoxy, he doesn’t mind addressing ethnic dimensions of the situation. 7 minutes.

French TV: Woman back from Ukraine drops truth bombs, calls Zelensky a puppet. 2 minutes.


It was widely claimed in mainstream media that the allegation of U.S. biolabs in Ukraine was just a “conspiracy theory.”  For example, Bloomberg, March 8, 2022:

But U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland admitted before Congress that these labs exist (1 minute):

Former TV news anchor Ben Swann’s first video clip on the biolabs. 1 minute.

Here Swann elaborates on the hazardous pathogens being developed in the biolabs. 1 minute.

Former U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard on the dangerous biolabs. 2 minutes.

Here Gabbard rebuts Mitt Romney’s accusations that she was guilty of “treasonous lies.” 4 minutes.

Finally, for those willing to hear the Russian side on the biolabs. 4 minutes.

The Deep State Speaks

For those conservatives, “deplorables,” Constitutionalists, and other patriots who are siding with Ukraine, it is noteworthy that the most notorious members of the Deep State are doing just that.

Hillary Clinton: “It’s so heartbreaking to me that Putin is acting out his own insecurities, his own resentments and grievances against the people of Ukraine—waging a war against a smaller state that is totally unprovoked,” said the former secretary of state. “It really tells us everything we need to know about Putin.”2

Here are some of the notorious George Soros’s Tweets on Ukraine:

 As Candace Owens (over 3 million followers on Twitter) commented:

Furthermore . . . Klaus (“You Will Own Nothing and Be Happy”) Schwab runs the World Economic Forum. His School for Young Global Leaders has indoctrinated prominent figures from around the world, including Tony Blair, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau, Jacinda Ardern (New Zealand’s PM), Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Chelsea Clinton, as well as cabinet members and many others in leadership positions. This helps explain why the response to Ukraine—as with COVID—has been so uniform.

Now Schwab has announced that the World Economic Forum has frozen all relations with Vladimir Putin and Russia.

Deciphering the Deep State Motives

There have been reports linking Hunter Biden and other U.S. figures to Ukrainian gas companies. However, I don’t believe the massive global response to Russia’s invasion is simply explained by this.

Another dimension to consider is “the Great Reset” being planned for by Klaus Schwab and his globalist colleagues—meaning a cashless world and a global digital ID, enabling governments to monitor all financial transactions and to limit or even erase the assets of “politically incorrect” people though a social credit score system similar to China’s.

This would, however, require a worldwide financial collapse to be implemented. The global economy took an enormous hit from the COVID lockdowns; then another from the “no jab no job” edicts, forcing countless people out of the labor markets. And now, with sanctions on Russia driving fuel and other prices up, the world is taking yet another blow. How many more hits would it take to destroy the world economy? Klaus Schwab has been warning for some time of a disastrous cyber attack, which would be easy enough to blame on Russia

I recommend the article “10 Signs the War in Ukraine is Part of the Great Reset.”

Also, it should not be overlooked that Ukraine is a key gateway for the Russian natural gas that has supplied Europe.

Link for picture:

Israel wants its own pipeline from the gigantic Leviathan gas and oil field through Syria, Turkey and Ukraine to Western Europe, cutting out Russia entirely. Turkey is reportedly on board with the plan, but Syria is not, a factor to consider in Israel’s ruthless bombings of Syria. The following 27-minute video, containing remarks from a source in Ukraine, confirms many facts about what is going on there. The Israel pipeline is discussed intermittently starting at the 7-minute mark.

The original video may be found at

Others have pointed out that the mainstream media’s intense focus on Ukraine serves to distract the public from other issues, such as the fact that the official COVID narrative had been rapidly unraveling, increasing legislative curbs on domestic freedoms, the declining economy, etc.

But there is a potential third motive that is the most frightening.

Risking World War 3

The United States has, of course, imposed sanctions on Russia. However, Russia has already proven that, through self-sufficiency, it can withstand U.S. sanctions, which are already backfiring as U.S. citizens face, for example, grossly inflated prices at the gas pump. Check out this 5-minute video:

The United States has gone above and beyond in its attempts to provoke Russia. Congress has approved a $14 billion package of military aid to the oppressive Zelensky regime.  In addition, hardcore ISIS terrorists—backed by the U.S. to overthrow Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad—are being transferred from Syria to Ukraine.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, a perennial war hawk, has called for the assassination of Putin. Russian athletes have been suspended from numerous events. Incredibly, Yuri Gagarin, widely recognized as the first man to enter outer space, has had his name removed by the Space Foundation.  But Gagarin, who died in 1968, had nothing to do with Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine. His removal would be comparable to removing Neil Armstrong’s name due to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.

The constant prodding of the “Russian Bear” could, of course, escalate into a nuclear war.  Russia now has missiles that cannot be detected on radar. And yet cavalier U.S. politicians and media continually push for a showdown with Russia in response to Zelensky’s request for a “no-fly” zone over Ukraine, even though the latter does not represent vital U.S. national security interests. A false flag atrocity—such as a chemical weapons attack on civilians by Ukrainian forces, but blamed on the Russians—could be used to demand head-on military confrontation.

Is it possible that there are members of the Deep State, who, believing they will be secure in underground facilities, are actually pushing for a nuclear war? That would certainly accelerate their global depopulation agenda, and knowing the evil that reigns at the top, nothing is unthinkable. However, I don’t believe they would seek an all-out nuclear war—that would disrupt or destroy the infrastructures for so many things they have been investing in: 5G, global IDs, vaccine passports, etc. However, it is not inconceivable that they might envision a very limited nuclear exchange—such as occurred in the 1964 film Fail Safe—just enough to frighten the world into accepting world government as the “only means” of world peace.

May God have mercy on us.
