Ukraine as proxy for war with Russia



Last night, of course, CNAV discussed the legacy media expressing fears of Trump’s re-election and revenge against them. In that discussion, CNAV mentioned Ukraine – and specifically this article by “Real Clear Investigator” Aaron Maté. That article is worth discussing in greater detail, for it illustrates that the Deep State, and the Obama Machine, used Ukraine in their joint bid for one-world government. Something called Russia – once the darling of the political left – is now an inveterate existential enemy to them. So is the first person to carry the Republican banner and actually take seriously the ostensible Republican message. Ukraine has been their proxy against both, but especially against Russia. But their real agenda is an agenda against all of humanity – except themselves.

Who is Aaron Maté?

Aaron Maté would at first seem a very odd choice to expose a plot of the left. That’s because, for years, he has belonged to the left, and stood for the “traditional” things for which the left stands. One need only read his biography, which he appends to his every article at the Real Clear Foundation:

Aaron Maté has provided extensive coverage of corruption within federal intelligence agencies as a contributor to RealClearInvestigations. He is also a contributor to The Nation, and his work has appeared in Democracy Now!, Vice, Al Jazeera, Toronto Star, The Intercept, and Le Monde Diplomatique. Maté is the host of the news show Pushback with Aaron Maté.

The Nation? Democracy Now!? Vice? The Intercept? Since when would CNAV ever quote those outlets? Well, we did – when The Intercept reported on (and probably boasted of) the role of the Deep State in turning social-media companies into State actors.

Nevertheless, Aaron Maté took time to interview a former diplomat for Ukraine – who now has sought asylum elsewhere in Europe. (Maté will not name the country, probably at his subject’s request.) Andrii Telizhenko was more than a member of Ukraine’s diplomatic corps; he also worked closely with the Democratic Party. He did this because he genuinely believed that Ukraine ought to be free of something called Russia – which he and others conflated with a Russia that once was – something calling itself Union of Socialist Soviet Republics. Now he sees the bitter fruit of a campaign he helped. Quoting Maté:

Although he once welcomed Washington’s influence in Ukraine, Telizhenko now takes a different view. “I’m a Ukrainian who knew how Ukraine was 30 years ago, and what it became today,” he says. “For me, it’s a total failed state.” In his view, Ukraine has been “used directly by the United States to fight a [proxy] war with Russia” and “as a rag to make money for people like Biden and his family.”

Of course his old allies have turned against him. That includes the Deep State – and the State Department. They, who once relied on him to further their plans, now say he worked with Russia to influence American elections. That’s a lie. Russia didn’t mess into American elections; Ukraine did.


The grooming of a warmonger

Aaron Maté goes back to November of 2013, and the roots of the Maidan Revolution. But actually one must look back further – to the Election of 2008. George W. Bush oversaw the tanking of the American economy. The Republican Party ran that election to lose. It began with the selection of the least-inspiring Presidential candidate they could have chosen: Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Then it continued with the collapse of several investment houses, and the ripple effects from Wall Street to Main Street.

The timing couldn’t have been more propitious for a one-worlder whom other one-worlders had groomed from his birth: Barack Obama. Born in Kenya (as that country boasted), carried into America in his mother’s arms (in a week for which archives of arrivals at American airports are missing), installed in Hawaii where one can fix any birth record or birth announcement – the one-worlders surely had their plans for him already laid. Sheriff Joseph Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona tried to put paid to speculation about Obama’s birth certificate – until he found a level of evasion more consistent with a criminal conspiracy than with honest record-keeping mistakes.

X influencer Dom Lucre shared extensive findings on that issue eleven months ago.

Barack Obama was the perfect Manchurian Candidate to set in motion a chain of events leading to war with Russia. Joan Swirsky, watching his inauguration, said then:

The sole mission of Barack Obama and his henchmen is to destroy Israel.

Actually, it was to remove all obstacles to the one-worlders. Israel is one; Russia is another.


Why Russia?

Russia today is an obvious target of the American political left. They don’t tolerate the Alphabet Soup movement. More tellingly, when Vladimir Putin feared a U.S. military intervention at the orders of a “President Hillary,” he returned home abruptly from a European junket – and ordered his people to arm themselves. Small arms in civilian possession is anathema to the American left. They want no person, except a law-enforcement (or “violence prevention”) officer, an active-duty military service member, a Very Important Person, or his/her/their bodyguard, to own, carry, or so much as touch, much less discharge, a firearm.

But Russia wasn’t always the enemy of the left. Back when it called itself Soviet Union, Russia was the darling of the left. Russia represented the ultimate in human progress and political development: New Communist Man, or New Man for short. New Man was not supposed to worry about profit or reward. He would serve the State, and the State would take care of anything material he could ever legitimately need.

And to her fluttering scarlet banner, / Selflessly true we always shall stand!

Or as Paul Robeson translated the World War II/Great Patriotic War version:

Long live our Soviet motherland, / Built by the people’s mighty hand.

Long live our people, united and free!

Strong in our friendship tried by fire. / Long may our crimson flag inspire,

Shining in glory for all men to see.

Except that Russia doesn’t fly a crimson banner anymore, but the original tricolor, lacking only the Romanov crest. Russia has revived the tune of the Hymn to the USSR – but not the lyrics! How Vladimir Putin, former light colonel in the First Chief Directorate of the KGB, must disappoint the Left! His conversion to, and embrace of, the Russian Orthodox Church is final shame to their dreams.

Timeline to war in Ukraine

In November of 2013 came the first flames that Obama – as President – could strike. Telizhenko names two names from that administration: John Brennan, head of the CIA, and Victoria Nuland from the State Department. Regular readers of these pages will recognize both names.


In that month, then-President Viktor Yanukovych delayed signing a trade agreement with the European Union. Yanukovych, with his severe venal corruption, had little to recommend him. But he was never going to sign a trade agreement that stated, as a condition, that he curtail trade with Russia. The Russia trade was quite lucrative for his base in eastern and southern Ukraine – meaning the Crimea and the Donbas. He much preferred to put Russia and the EU in competition with one another.

Nevertheless a protest took place on Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) in Kyiv. It started out peacefully enough – until the ultra-nationalist forces took it over. And here’s another irony everyone missed: the ultra-nationalists accused the Jews of collaborating with the Russians. That made their movement less than palatable to European sensibilities. But Obama, his officials, and the “neoconservatives” whom he never truly acknowledged, insisted on working with such people. To them, Ukraine was a prize – and a potential spear to aim at the heart of Russia. Little things like Nazi-like ideology and blatant antisemitism didn’t matter. (Why it didn’t stop the Israelis from supplying them later is far from clear. Perhaps this is yet another bad decision on their part.)

False-flag pseudo-operations

Affairs in Ukraine went from bad to worse. Then on February 20, 2014, snipers killed several Maidan Square protesters. But those snipers were not government forces. Estonia’s foreign minister charged then that this was a false-flag pseudo-operation. Nationalist forces literally killed some of their own followers to drum up popular sympathy. From that point forward they refused to consider any solution that would keep Yanukovych in office. But Telizhenko reveals worse: Victoria Nuland was hand-picking those who would assume power immediately.

Yanukovych, stripped of all power, fled to Moscow. Not long afterward, Russia started looking after her interests – and those of ethnic Russians in eastern and southern Ukraine. Crimea was first; Russia annexed it after a hasty referendum on independence from Ukraine and reunion with Russia.

Not long thereafter, Donbas separatists seized government buildings in three Donbas cities: Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkiv. This time Putin was willing to wait on any referenda in that region. But CIA chief Brennan flew to Kyiv for secret meetings with several officials of the new Ukraine government. At that meeting – according to Telizhenko – Brennan virtually authorized Ukraine to use force against the Donbas.


Which they did. They almost erased the Donbas rebels, but Russia intervened then, and blunted the advance. Obama must have thought better of escalating matters any further. That’s the only reason the Russia and Ukraine war did not begin then and there.

The Minsk Accords – and corrupt businessmen

The Minsk Accords date from this period. Ukraine agreed to afford the Donbas peoples limited autonomy, if Russia would withdraw and the Donbas demilitarized. Obama would have let the matter rest; he had little taste for carrying the conflict further. But Victoria Nuland, among others, was pressing the matter – behind his back. Also, the CIA essentially re-created the Ukraine intelligence establishment. That establishment became an extension of the CIA itself.

More to the point, the United States Embassy in Kyiv was effectively running the government. In December 2015 matters came to a curious head. Then-Vice-President Biden called Ukraine officials and ordered them – on pain of loss of $1 billion in aid – to fire prosecutir Viktor Shokin. That worthy, at the time, was investigating officials of the Ukraine gas company, Burisma. And that company was one of many ventures in which Hunter Biden was involved.

Ukraine, not Russia, intervened in an American election

Telizhenko also says flatly that Ukraine intervened in the Election of 2016 – on Hillary Clinton’s side. They tried to “get dirt” on Donald J. Trump. But of course, Trump has committed no more serious offense than to speak rather crudely of women he’s dated. He has not accepted any bribes – or sexual favors from children.

The Russia Hoax also originated in Ukraine. It served both them and the White House to paint Trump, the outsider, as a Russian asset. That explains the apparent theft of Democratic Party emails and their release to WikiLeaks. That also is a false-flag pseudo-operation.


But of course that was to no avail. Trump won anyway, by carrying Pennsylvania – the last thing anyone expected. Perhaps from that moment on, Democrats were looking to remove Trump through impeachment. They redoubled their efforts when Trump began to get a little too close to the truth for their comfort.

The Articles of Impeachment referred to a telephone call between Trump and new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But they did not discuss the Burisma Gas Company, as Impeachment Floor Managers would later allege. Instead, Trump encouraged Zelensky to patch things up with Vladimir Putin of Russia. The problem is, ultra-nationalist elements in the Ukraine high command threatened to “frag” Zelensky if he did any such thing.

Road to open war with Russia

Impeachment resulted in a “hung Senate,” of course. Republicans in the Senate didn’t know half the story behind that phone call. They knew only that no one could prove that it was a dirty as the Democrats said it was. And perhaps they were in no mood to give the Democrats a chance to muck things up with a Vice-Presidential appointment and confirmation fight. Not with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, they didn’t.

Of course, Trump lost the Election of 2020 – or had it stolen from him. If Ukraine had a hand in that, it was probably the development of the coronavirus that caused the P(l)andemic which in turn gave the Democrats the perfect excuse to conduct fifty Presidential Elections with heavy use of mail-in absentee ballots mailed to all voters, whether they requested them or not.

Zelensky learned early how to continue in office without benefit of support. Seeing himself about to lose to a pro-Russian candidate, he:

  1. Shut down three opposition television stations,
  2. Seized assets belonging to the opposition candidate’s family, and
  3. Charged his opponent with treason.

And “Resident” Joe Biden cheered him on. From then on, the road to open war was clear. Ukraine and Russia stationed troops across the border from one another. Then in February 2022, Putin, all his efforts at a peaceful resolution having come to nothing, invaded.

Ukraine can’t win – but gets aid anyway

By now everyone recognizes that Ukraine cannot possibly win the war it, and the Obama-Biden machine, provoked. Morale in the Armed Forces of Ukraine couldn’t be lower. They expect Russia to capture the Donbas by October.

Nevertheless the machinations continue. That explains Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.), Speaker of the House, reneging on a promise to shut off the money spigot. Worse yet, we now hear of definite plans to invite Ukraine into NATO.

The revelations by Andrii Telizhenko and others prove that elements of the Deep State – with Barack Obama as their figurehead:

  1. Changed the duly elected government in Ukraine into one willing to start a suicidal war with Russia, and
  2. Are dragging the United States into a flat-out, blood-and-flames, nuclear war, also with Russia.

There is no excuse for that. And now that the Democrats have set the precedent, Trump should prosecute Victoria Nuland, John Brennan, and several other officials. The Bidens’ venal till tapping is bad enough – but these officials are guilty of treason.

What’s more, the House and Senate needs to impeach Obama and Biden for their roles in starting this war. Wanton violation of rules by which they expect others to abide, surely counts as treason. If that doesn’t suffice, aiding and abetting a biological weapons developer and child-trafficking nexus surely would. And even beyond civil-service reform, Trump has grounds to place all the Obama hangers-on under arrest.

Maybe then, at least one corner of the world can return to a semblance of peace.
