How Kiev Takes Kurt Volker for an Idiot

by Scott Humor Regardless of what the US’s new envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker, thinks of himself, he arrived to Ukraine to buy a Brooklyn Bridge, whether he wanted it or not. Among the aboriginals populating Kiev-Dnepropetrovsk-Tel-Aviv triangle, the favored scheme is a real estate fraud. It generally goes like this: we show you a great property with a sea view, you pay us money; after taking your money, we disappear leaving you to take

SBU orders to destroy all evidence of the conducted special operation MH17

by Scott Humor If you want to know my opinion that hasn’t changed since 2014. The Boeing flight MH17 was shot down by the Ukrainian air force fighter jets, but not necessarily piloted by Ukrainian pilots. It was a CIA and NATO operation to frame Russia. Most likely the Dutch government was a part of this operation. Now, they are trying to hang all the dogs on Waltzman -Poroshenko, because

Give the falling CIA APUSH

“APUSH” is short for Advanced Placement United States History. It’s a class that many American high school students take. That moment when your paranoia turns out to be a perfectly tuned intuition. European ruling classes seriously miscalculated with Erdogan. They thought that he depends on them, turns out they depend on him. Just as seriously they miscalculated with supporting an anti-Russia project in Ukraine and the sanctions. Today people of

How Russia Implements the Minsk 2 Agreement, by Scott Humor

A few years ago, I was having coffee with my then-business partner. He happened to be in the middle of a process called “enrolling your child in a private school.” In my naiveté I thought that this process was a fairly straightforward one: you give them your application and a check, and they accept your kid. But apparently, there were more people with money that this particular school was willing to
