Former Ukrainian deputy describes how the US ambassador blackmails politicians

counting dollars in carThe American Embassy influenced the decisions of the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian parliament, with the help of information about the bank accounts of key figures of parliament.

This was stated on the air of the TV program “An evening with Vladimir Solovyov” by the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the previous session, Spiridon Kilinkarov.

“I state with responsibly that in the Verkhovna Rada, when there were some difficult political affairs, the ambassador of the US always appeared on the balcony. He didn’t hit anyone with a stick, he didn’t shout, he just culturally sat down in a chair and observed voting in the parliament. If a vote wasn’t passed, in the evening key figures who make decisions are invited to the American Embassy. He doesn’t shout there either. He says: ‘You know, mister, here you have bank accounts, here, here, and here … I’ve been here since 2006, I remember that there were three or four of such votes…’,” said Kilinkarov.

The noise accompanying the new free trade agreement between US, Mexico and Canada

NoNewNafta

By K.C. ADAMS

Since President Trump’s inauguration in 2017, the Trudeau Liberals and their retinue in the mass media and trade union movement have hysterically bleated about the demise of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). They have presented Trump’s threat to walk away from NAFTA as a grave danger to Canada’s economy and saving the trade agreement as akin to saving Canada from collapse. The mass media generated a three-ring circus of non-stop “will they agree or not,” “will Trump pull the plug or not,” “will Freeland appear on the steps to make an announcement or not.” Continue reading

(October 5) – After exploring the vast surveillance regime along the US-Mexico border and finding Israeli systems installed at every turn, the author Todd Miller and I were drawn to investigate Israel as the largest homeland security industry in the world.
