Ukraine's richest oligarch mobilizes private 'army' after assets threatened ~ link ~ USA and NATO: Preserving the rights of oligarchs!!!  Stirling  
Rinat Akhmetov - Ukraine's richest man with an estimated worth of $11.4 billion - has, as Reuters reports, acquired almost feudal status in the industrial hub of Donetsk in the past 20 years - but the separatist rebellions there have altered the dynamics of power. This is not acceptable to the billionaire and so he has demanded his miners and metalworkers join police on patrol on Mariupol. As pro-Russian rebels declaring independence seized public buildings across the steel and coal belt which is the basis of his colossal fortune, he issued repeated written statements in support of a united Ukraine... but the media-shy 47-year-old, who has a workforce of 300,000 people on his payroll in the Donbass, has to tread carefully around local sensitivities and has avoided specifically condemning the action of the separatists.  

Workers seize city in eastern Ukraine from 'separatists' ~ link ~ See the above story.  Stirling    
Thousands of steelworkers fanned out on Thursday through the city of Mariupol, establishing control over the streets and banishing the pro-Kremlin militants who until recently had seemed to be consolidating their grip on power, dealing a setback to Russia and possibly reversing the momentum in eastern Ukraine.

By late Thursday, miners and steelworkers had deployed in at least five cities, including the regional capital, Donetsk. They had not, however, become the dominant force there that they were in Mariupol, the region’s second-largest city and the site last week of a bloody confrontation between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian militants.

USA threatens Russia with Petrodollar-Busting Deal ~ link ~
On the heels of Russia's potential "holy grail" gas deal with China, the news of a Russia-Iran oil "barter" deal, it appears the US is starting to get very concerned about its almighty Petrodollar
We suspect these sanctions would have more teeth than some travel bans, but, as we noted previously, it is just as likely to be another epic geopolitical debacle resulting from what was originally intended to be a demonstration of strength and instead is rapidly turning out into a terminal confirmation of weakness.

Odessa Massacre: A model of warfare "On the Cheep" ~ link ~ Do take the time to read this one in full at the link.  Stirling   
The attack in Odessa is, we are told, soon to be repeated. In today’s world, the planning of “isolated incidents of spontaneous violence” requires careful coordination. NATO hacking teams, US Embassy attaché’s, corrupt police officials and media, New York, London and Washington, all mysteriously are well informed.

What we are told is “civil discord” or even ethnic cleansing is, in reality, something else, something far more sinister and foreboding. The Pentagon has other names for it, asymmetrical warfare or low intensity conflicts. We call it “war on the cheap.”

Washington’s new war is all about collateral damage, more deaths to the dollars than “shock and awe.

90% Of All Deaths In War Are CIVILIANS ~ link ~ War is a three-letter word in direct opposition to another three-letter word, GOD.  Those that promote war, and work behind the scenes for war are demonic and clearly doing the work of the fallen Lucifer, and we have a great deal of that going on in America and NATO.   Stirling     

Putin: A Russian version of Nixon? ~ link ~
In a long – but fascinating – article, Pando’s Mark Ames explains that the West totally misunderstands Putin.
He’s not trying to build a Greater Russian empire or trying to counter the power of the West for some humanitarian reason.

Rather – says Ames – Putin’s actions in Ukraine, his persecution of the band Pussy Riot, his anti-gay crusade, and his crack-down on alternative websites are all part of a Nixon strategy of appealing to Russia’s “silent majority” who despise Moscow’s liberal class:
Every hack knows that “all politics is local” — but we rarely apply this adage to understanding the politics of the rest of the world.

What is China building on this tiny island? ~ link ~
The Philippine government on Thursday released military surveillance photos of Chinese land reclamation on a reef claimed by Manila in the South China Sea that it said showed Beijing violated a regional agreement not to escalate territorial disputes. 

Foreign Affairs Department spokesman Charles Jose said the pictures show Chinese aggressiveness in asserting its claims over the entire South China Sea.
The aerial photographs were accompanied by a caption stating that they were obtained from "Philippine intelligence sources." The caption said the "extensive reclamation" by China on the Johnson South Reef, called Mabini by Manila and Chigua by Beijing, was "destabilizing." 

US Federal Government (and local cops) using 'Civil Forfeiture' to seize valuable property ~ link ~ This is one of the most egregious examples of how the US Constitution has been trashed.  There is NO authority under the US Constitution for this behavior by either the Feds or state/local authorities to utilize "Civil Forfeiture", in fact just the opposite is is a outright violation of citizens rights under the US Constitution.  Stirling    

Indian election: Narendra Modi hails landmark win ~ link Votes counted so far suggest the BJP is on course for the most resounding victory by any party for 30 years, trouncing the outgoing Congress Party. The controversial leader campaigned on promises to revive the economy.
