Is Blackwater in Ukraine?

Has Blackwater been deployed to Ukraine? The Daily Mail is speculating as much. It has found two YouTube videos showing military men with no insignias on their uniforms on the streets of Donetsk, a largely Russian-speaking city in east Ukraine which has been the scene of large protests against the country's new regime. Supposedly one can hear shouts of "Blackwater! Blackwater" but it is impossible for me to hear.

The Mail also reports that Twitter is abuzz with this report but the only tweets a search finds on US Twitter reference back to the Mail's post. I was able to find a Russian web site, from which I linked the above Blackwater graphic. This may be the Mail's source but they do not cite it. Google Translate is marvelous but the translated syntax is cumbersome. The upshot of the post is 300 men arrived in private jets in Kiev. They were dressed in civilian wear but carried military style duffle bags. Presumably they have been deployed to control the pro Russian population. It is reported that the Ukraine government is using social media to recruit army volunteers as its conscription efforts have been a bust.
With apologies for Google Translate:
As previously reported, the Verkhovna Rada appointed Acting President of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov said that Ukrainian troops are on high alert. But in Ukraine poyavlyutsya foreign fighters privat armies - mercenaries , ready for the money to do whatever their superiors . Here is the latest news: " According to our Ukrainian friends from the night on March 2 and Juliani Borispol charter flights began arriving strong young men in ordinary civilian clothes - but each with several bulky bags field . In which the U.S. Army usually carry gear sets . Strangely way all of these people are employed by private military company "Greystone Limited" - daughter of the famous "Xe Services LLC" - former "Blackwater USA". Total came to 300 people already . Objectives these strong - and well-trained guys - can be very different : from the protection of the new government of hundreds of self-defense " Evromaydana " sweeps to resist cities in the East and South- East of Ukraine . question is , how many of them eventually rally in Kiev - and who pays for this spectacular feast is not cheap . Certainly not upstart " government Ukraine , I believe , "writes blogger stbcaptain. this means that the fight against the Russian Ukrainians do not want and will not ! and this - the best proof that the people are united ! But against the Russian and Ukrainians themselves against already thrown well trained mercenaries from different countries , mostly white people , to the citizens of Kiev could not immediately suspect them strangers. They are not capable of carrying out major battles , but perfectly prepared to sabotage (explosions , acts of terrorism , arson , snipers , etc., etc. ) . These " wild geese ," as they were called in the period of their active work in Africa, now arrived on the Ukrainian land . 300 soldiers - not the army . But they are trained special operations . And everyone is able to act alone. When the direct and immediate self-proclaimed Ukrainian government connivance and direct and immediate intervention in this adventure of the U.S. Embassy , headed by Ambassador personally - these saboteurs in the near future a threat key objects life of Ukraine. " He who has ears , let him hear , who have eyes , but see " that gets up the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine ! Blackwater in Donetsk

Blackwater was founded in 1997 by former U.S. Navy SEAL Erik Prince. It now goes by the name Academi.

No Issa isn't going anywhere! Get over it!

The mainstream media has gone off on one of its all too frequent partisan rants. CBS has the temerity to ask that Rep. Issa be removed from chairmanship. Everyone knows that the real story to come from that hearing was that the emails disclosed motive .
“Tea Party Matter very dangerous,” Ms. Lerner wrote saying that those applications could end up being the “vehicle to go to court” to get more clarity on a 2010 Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance rules. So spike the Tea Party and avoid another precedent setting expansion of Citizen United.
Naturally the media is ignoring that damning inference and instead it has focused on the wounded ego of easily wounded Rep. Cummings. In the end most concede that Boehner will allow Issa to remain in the chair. Really? Boehner doesn't have to allow anything. If he wants Issa's scalp come and get it. One would think the popular media could figure out that any move on Boehner's part to placate the perpetually aggrieved Democrats would be his last act as speaker. I seriously doubt if Boehner is elected to the speakership again but if he's looking for excitement that would be a good way to find it.

Civility in the good old days

The networks have hardly covered the IRS scandal since the it first burst into the news nine months ago. That changed just a bit yesterday when Rep. Darrell Issa cut off ass clown Elijah Cummings' microphone.  Then it became a big story focusing on Issa's purported lack of civility.Yes, civility has declined since the Republicans took over the House. See how civilly the Democrats treated Republicans.

Update: From The Hill
The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus has called for stripping House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) of his gavel after an explosive IRS hearing on Wednesday.
Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing – including cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) – amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said she wants Issa to apologize on the House floor.
“The American people have the right to expect that their elected leaders be held to the highest possible standards of conduct. Congressional committee leaders are held to an even higher standard due to their unique positions,” Fudge wrote in a letter to Boehner.
“Congressman Darrell Issa of California abused his authority and therefore must be reprimanded to ensure the dignity of the House of Representatives is preserved.”

Congressman Grayson: Do You Still Shove Your Wife?

A judge has granted a temporary protective injunction against U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson after his wife filed paperwork accusing the Orlando congressman of shoving and injuring her during an incident this past weekend. Lolita Grayson's petition for the injunction, dated Monday, says her husband pushed her against a door, causing her to fall to the ground, during a confrontation Saturday at their home on Oak Park Road near Windermere.,0,7338590.story

The Putin-Obama Photos: At Least He Doesn't Use Training Wheels

I don't want WW III and I don't think Ukraine is worth a drop of American blood and I know it's dangerous to insult the manhood of national leaders because they might just bomb an aspirin factory or do something even worse. But... jpeg = 1k text.

RT anchor resigns on air

This RT anchor resigned on the air saying should could not longer be a party to Russian propaganda. She said her grandparents came to the United States during the Hungarian Revolution to escape Soviet occupation and she told viewers she decided she couldn't, in good conscience, continue to work for RT as it pimped for Putin.

Don't ever expect to see a network or cable anchor resign over a matter of principle. They are far too selfish for martyrdom. On the other hand I'm reminded of a Russian anchor who was fired for her on-air editorializing. I liked her too.

Geithner tries to block subpoena in Standard and Poor retaliation lawsuit

Timothy Geithner, through his attorneys has asked a federal judge to block a subpoena requesting information about a phone call he is alleged to have made to Harold McGraw. I have dealt with this emerging scandal here and here. In brief, after Standard Poor downgraded US debt the chairman of its parent company, McGraw Hill, received a phone call from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner promising there would be consequences. Since then the DOJ has brought a lawsuit against Standard and Poor over its ratings of banks leading up to the financial meltdown of 2008. McGraw Hill claims that the motive for the suit is retaliation for the debt downgrade. Using Geithner's public calendar S&P lawyers have determined that he made the call just 5 minutes after meeting with Obama.
“The Supreme Court and other courts have long recognized that high-ranking public officials should be shielded from discovery requests absent extraordinary showings that the discovery is necessary and that all efforts have been made to avoid it and limit its burdensomeness,” Geithner's attorneys argue.
In other words he doesn't want to talk about it.
Terrence Checki, executive vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, also asked the judge to set aside S&P’s subpoena for information. Evidently Geithner vented his frustrations to him.
“Mr. Checki is an executive of the New York Fed, which is not an agency of the federal government, let alone a part of the Justice Department,” according to the filing. “He could not, and did not, play any role in the decision to sue S&P.”
You probably didn't know the fed is not an agency of the federal government did you? We'll see if the judge can figure that out.

Off-Topic: LBJ's Mistress Tells All!

Like global warming, the JFK assassination is not "settled." A consensus of journalists does not determine truth any more than does a consensus of prostituted scientists. This is a subject I will revisit from time to time. My belief is that we will see a "grand unified theory" that will challenge and displace the "lone nut employed at strategic site followed by another lone nut with ties to organized crime who just happens to roam the hallways of The Dallas Police Department and who assists the prosecutor in fielding questions" explanation. The following videos are a good starting point. Viva La Heresy! PART 1

We Could Use A Lady Like Kesha Rogers

Hoosierman has covered Keisha Rogers at a friendly blog.

Slate expresses the Dems' fear. Read the piece below and try not to laugh. There is genuine resentment and concern in the land of the clever.

The Dems have been hijacked by extremists. The result is that Larouchians now seem mainstream by comparison. The writer complains about an email he got from one of the L Boys.

Did any of you idiots who are trashing Kesha Rogers and Texas voters consider that maybe voters in Texas oppose Obama's Wall Street-directed policies, such as more bailouts for Wall Street, a law which forces Americans to buy PRIVATE insurance, defense of Bushite NSA spying, drone attacks and GITMO, and committing the U.S. to regime change?  Do you all believe the line that Obama wants to do what's right, but is held back by mean Republicans, such as FOX TV and the Tea Party?
What cowards!! A real, fighting Democrat, in the FDR tradition -- and there are still some of those left in Texas -- hates the corporate agenda of today's Wall Street Dems (ever hear of Ralph Yarborough, Jim Wright, Henry B. Gonzalez?). The disaster for the Dems in Texas is when they defend the indefensible, namely the Obama regime.

The above was written by a Larouchian but I share a lot of his sympathies. We might not agree on solutions but we can agree that this administration is by far the most corrupt in the history of the United States. The followers of Lyndon Larouche would be a big improvement.

If Barack Obama Has Any Gravitas, I Will Never See It

So we are treated to Secretary Kerry yammering away about those mean old Russians. The sight of JFK (Just For Kerry) hits a few nerves with me. I don't like the way he betrayed his fellow vets. I am suspicious of a man who made lifetime enemies where others made lifetime friends. I dislike his sense of privilege and I will never understand Limousine Liberals, Lear Jet Liberals or Long Yacht Liberals.

Nonetheless, Kerry looks the part of Secretary of State. He seems to be in control of the situation, a grown-up in charge.

The camera cuts to the President and I see an overgrown college sophomore. Despite the gray hair, he is still the guy who would blow off a national security meeting if someone tapped a keg. When you cut through the window dressing--the imbecilic halo, the fainting women, the cheap hypnotic cadence, the enhanced audio, the dais stacked with brain dead losers--you see a pathetically vapid human being who knows down deep that he is pathetically vapid.

Part of me says we should choose our words carefully in times of national crisis. We must speak with one voice against the forces of oppression. We must be careful about kibbutzing from the sidelines. Michael speaks for the Corleone Family. Then I remind myself that Barry is our president.

Where's the keg, man?

Don't bring a gun to a snowball fight

The Washington Post's Going Out Guide is reporting that while most of government has been shut down there is a snowball fight scheduled for Dupont Circle. I remember this video from 4 years ago and wonder if Detective Baylor is still with the DC Metro Police Department.
