Victoria Nuland and Ukraine

What's going on in Ukraine, where the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland was embarrassed by the Russkies releasing a presumably tapped phone call of her attempting to stage-manage Ukrainian affairs (e.g., heavyweight champ Vitali Klitschko should be kept out of any coalition government) and expressing short-temperedness with her putative E.U. allies?

The Game of the Great Powers. It's kind of like the Seahawks are winning 36-8, but even if they put in the reserves, the reserves are still going to try hard to run up the score even further. That's what they do. Ukraine may not strike you or me as hugely crucial to America's national interests, but if you are the State Department official in charge of Ukraine you still want to sack Peyton Manning (or the geopolitical equivalent).

Your Lying Eyes took a look at Ms. Nuland's background:
She got into the State Department during the Bush Administration, so she's probably not some wide-eyed liberal nut. In fact she's married to Robert Kagan - that's a familiar name, isn't it. Robert and brother Fred seem to have strategically implanted themselves in key policy-making positions within the Democratic and Republican party apparatus. Robert is embedded at Brookings, while Fred is ensconsed at AEI. It's a beautiful thing, America 2.0 (or is it 3.0 - can't keep track).

Her father-in-law is Yale historian Donald Kagan, author of a four-volume history of the Peloponnesian War from which neocons appear to have drawn remarkably wrong-headed lessons: e.g., a turning point in the war between Athens and Sparta was when the here-to-fore dominant Athenians decided to invade irrelevant Sicily, which turned out to be a vast waste of money and men. Athens ultimately lost the war. Back in 2002, the neocons, like all three Kagans, somehow deduced from this lesson of history that the New Athenians (us) should invade Iraq.

Fred and Kim Kagan
on the job for you and
me bringing democracy
to Iraq.
Her brother-in-law Fred's wife is Kimberly Kagan, who is also a militarist pundit and adviser.

Her father is surgeon and Yale medical school professor Sherwin Nuland, author of the bestseller How We Die.

A talented, energetic family that is part of the Permanent Government of the United States. It doesn't really matter who wins the Presidential election: some Kagan-Nuland will be doing something somewhere in your name and on your dime. From Wikipedia:
Nuland has had a long career in the Foreign Service and has worked for both Democratic and Republican administrations. During the Bill Clinton administration, Nuland was chief of staff to Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott before moving on to serve as deputy director for former Soviet Union affairs. During the George W. Bush administration, she served as the principal deputy foreign policy adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney and then as U.S. ambassador to NATO. During the Barack Obama administration, she was special envoy for Conventional Armed Forces in Europe before assuming the position of State Department spokesperson in summer 2011, which she held until February 2013. 
She was nominated to serve as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs in May 2013 and sworn in to fill that role in September 2013.[3]

So, if the 2016 election is between, say, Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan, she won't be sweating about whether or not she'll have a job in 2017.

Considering their catastrophic track record on Iraq and their continued ascent in the stratosphere of power players, is there anything the Kagan-Nulands could screw up that would hurt their careers? (Other than publicly recanting and apologizing, of course.)

WIKIPEDIA on Robert Kagan's dad, Donald:

Born into a Jewish family from Kuršėnai, Kagan grew up in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York, where his family emigrated when he was two years old, shortly after the death of his father. He graduated from Brooklyn College in 1954, received an MA from Brown University in 1955 and a PhD from the Ohio State University in 1958.[1]
Once a liberal Democrat, Professor Kagan changed his views in 1969. According to Jim Lobe, cited by Craig Unger, Kagan's turn away from liberalism occurred in 1969 when Cornell University was pressured into starting a Black Studies program by gun-wielding militants seizing the Willard Straight Hall: "Watching administrators demonstrate all the courage of Neville Chamberlain had a great impact on me, and I became much more conservative."[2] He was one of the original signers of the 1997 Statement of Principles by the neoconservative think tank Project for the New American Century.[3] On the eve of the 2000 presidential elections, Kagan and his son, Frederick Kagan, published While America Sleeps, a call to increase defense spending.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) awarded Donald Kagan the National Humanities Medal in 2002, and selected him to deliver the 2005 Jefferson Lecture, which the NEH calls "the highest honor the federal government confers for distinguished intellectual achievement in the humanities."[4] Kagan's Jefferson Lecture was entitled "In Defense of History";[5] he argued that history is of primary importance in the study of the humanities.[6][7]
Until his retirement in 2013, Kagan was Sterling Professor of Classics and History at Yale University—a title reserved for only the few most accomplished academics at Yale. His course "The Origins of War" was one of the university's most popular courses for twenty-five years. He currently teaches "Introduction to Ancient Greek History" [8] and upper level History and Classical Civilization seminars focusing on topics from Thucydides to the Lakedaimonian hegemony.
Kagan lives in New Haven, Connecticut. He is married to Myrna Kagan, a teacher and historian in her own right, and the author of "Vision in the Sky: New Haven's Early Years, 1638-1784." He is the father of Robert Kagan and Frederick Kagan, both well-known writers. Robert Kagan's wife is Victoria Nuland, spokesperson for the United States Department of State. Frederick Kagan's wife is Kimberly Kagan, a well-known military historian and founder and president of the Institute for the Study of War.

WIKIPEDIA on Victoria:

"Nuland is the daughter of Yale bioethics and medicine professor Sherwin B. Nuland, the family's original surname being Nudelman. She graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall in 1979 and has a B.A. from Brown University. Nuland is married to historian Robert Kagan, with whom she has two children. Nuland speaks Russian, French, and some Chinese.
Career[edit]

Nuland has had a long career in the Foreign Service and has worked for both Democratic and Republican administrations. During the Bill Clinton administration, Nuland was chief of staff to Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott before moving on to serve as deputy director for former Soviet Union affairs. During the George W. Bush administration, she served as the principal deputy foreign policy adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney and then as U.S. ambassador to NATO. During the Barack Obama administration, she was special envoy for Conventional Armed Forces in Europe before assuming the position of State Department spokesperson in summer 2011, which she held until February 2013.[2]
Assistant Secretary[edit]
She was nominated to serve as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs in May 2013 and sworn in to fill that role in September 2013.[3]
2014 Ukraine/EU conversation[edit]
On 6 February 2014[nb 1] Nuland became part of a diplomatic scandal, when one of her January 2014 conversations with the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, was apparently intercepted and uploaded to YouTube.[nb 2] In discussion about how to handle crises in Ukraine, Nuland remarked, "Fuck the E.U." and Pyatt responded, "Oh, exactly,...".[nb 3][7][8][9][nb 4] A spokeswoman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton stated (the same day) that the EU would not comment on a "leaked alleged" conversation.[5][nb 5] The next day a spokeswoman, Christiane Wirtz, stated that German Chancellor Angela Merkel termed Nuland's remark "absolutely unacceptable."

CV looks pretty standard for a member of the Foreign Service Elite: good prep school (Rosemary Choate Hall), degree from an Ivy League uni (Brown), etc.

She's a career officer. I think one of her more recent positions was head flak. In lieu of having Mrs. Kagan in the position, you might get a member of Congress or a think tank denizen.

Iraq had oil, a dependent population needing protection from Iran and AQ, and could be supplied from sea. Afghanistan as no oil and can't allow us to dump Saudis as oil client state. It must be supplied through Pakistan which is hostile. Saddam was a symbol of US inabilty to destroy enemies.

Who was stupid again?

Success in Iraq could have let us dump the Saudis, get the royals behind 9/11, and strike fear in Tehran next door with a flood of Iraqi oil impoverishing that regime.

Iraq as opposed to Afganistan, or Libya, or Syria, or oking Irans bomb?

I'm pretty sure Viktor Yanukovych won in what were deemed relatively free and fair elections. He should be allowed to finish his term without foreign interference.

As the legendary Pat Buchanan has pointed out:

While he rules a divided nation, Yanukovych has hardly been a tyrant. As the crowds grew violent, he dismissed his government, offered the prime ministry to a leader of the opposition, repealed the laws lately passed to crack down on demonstrations, and took sick for four days.

But the street crowds, sensing he is breaking and smelling victory, are pressing ahead. There have now been several deaths among the protesters and police.

Putin is incensed, but inhibited by the need to keep a friendly face for the Sochi Olympics. Yet he makes a valid point.

How would Europeans have reacted if, in the bailout crisis, he, Putin, had flown to Athens and goaded rioters demanding that Greece default and pull out of the eurozone?

How would the EU react if Putin were to hail the United Kingdom Independence Party, which wants out of the EU, or the Scottish National Party, which wants to secede from Great Britain?

The US and the EU really need to stick their noses elsewhere. Haven't they got their own collapsing economies to worry about?

Steve's right - Ukraine is not hugely crucial to America's national interests.

Context matters. Stop hyperventilating and look at each case in context. Besides, it isn't Steve's point. The point is "Invade the World" is driven by the restlessness of our managers, whose principal HBD connection is their being selected by Bell Curve sorting in our society's increasing stratification by IQ (or its proxies). If many of the recent and relevant examples are Jews, so much the better for anyone interested in ethnicity.

Some commenters may have a bitter beef with the bad aspects of Jewish behavior (I myself do, and with those of black and Appalachian white behavior, too). But Steve will be Steve, and he has his Steve memes, which will be repeated until you attend to them.

There you go again blaming the goyim.

1) perhaps we goyim just want to have OUR interests represented by people who people who will represent OUR interests. Rdical extremism, I know. If 2% of the population must have 50%-80% of the best jobs --pretty much like Weimar Germany--then can we not at least have the best of the 2, and not a section who will pursue ethnic profit over the national interest.

2)Jews often boast about their gains as being as much due to higher integrity as much as merit. (does not Weiner's Mad Men attack the old WASPs for being so corrupt, out of touch etc and judge the 1969 executives by 2014 standards?) If those who have bollixed up this country lack the integrity to resign, then why don't Jews criticize themselves or at least allow criticism of the disastrous policies and policy makers?

If a US ambassador with a Southern accent had screwed up then he would be lampooned by the MSM and so would his group for allowing such an oaf to reach such a high level. Who/what caused the phrases DWM-dead white male or even WASPs to gain currency....but when a MOT screws up the guns of satire fall silent on the perp, and are aimed at those who would liketo probe the reasons for the cock-up.

The Ukrainian opposition is led by the boxer Klitschko, the west Ukrainian ultra-nationalist Tyahnibok and a man named Yatseniuk, who is said to be ethnically, but not religiously Jewish. The main point Nuland makes in that conversation is that Yatseniuk (whom she calls Yats) should be in the future Ukrainian government, but Klitschko and Tagnebok shouldn't be.

Yes, it's totally a Jewish conspiracy to put the anti-Semitic Ukrainian nationalists in power.

Of course, Occam's razor suggests that Ms. Nuland is just reflecting the retarded Western consensus, held by countless WASP intellectuals and officials, that it is a matter of great importance to thwart Putin's reasonable ambitions in Ukraine.

Why is it surprising that a group of individuals with an average IQ a standard deviation about the national average, who immigrated to the center of power (Northeastern seaboard) and did well enough never to have to leave, holds a disproportionate amount of influence to their numbers? It's mundane and obvious.

How many deputy foreign policy advisers does the VP need?

This is part of the problem. There are too many sinecures in the federal bureaucracy, which means there isn't enough turnover. A Neutron Jack approach here of culling the bottom 10% every year might mean that Nuland would be collecting a check from the Council of Foreign Relations instead, writing an occasional WSJ op/ed at worst.

Anonymous said...

Why would someone like Nuland support Ukrainian nationalists against Putin, a Russian nationalist? Because she sees Russia as more important, as more of a threat than Ukraine. And as that conversation shows, she doesn't want Tyahnibok, the west Ukrainian nationalist, to end up in the government anyway.

Why does Washington support Tibetan nationalism against Han Chinese nationalism? Because it sees China as a threat. Tibet is a non-entity. The same dynamic works in leftist support for black nationalism against white nationalism and in a million other conflicts, big and small. It's a general political and military principle.

What’s more uncomfortable, they’re both about real people. “The Wolf of Wall Street” is based on a memoir by the very real Jordan Belfort, who recruited a small army, he wrote, of “the most savage young Jews anywhere on Long Island” to man his crooked brokerage. “American Hustle” is a fictionalized version of Abscam, the 1970s FBI sting run by another real Jewish con man, Mel Weinberg. This stuff isn’t made up.
True, neither film features a villain on the scale of Bernie Madoff. For his story, watch a third Oscar nominee, “Blue Jasmine,” loosely built around a Madoff-type swindler played by Alec Baldwin. Its characters aren’t Jewish. But, hey, it’s made by Woody Allen. Enough said.

Steve Sailer's point is that it's convenient that one family (the Kagans) are tremendously powerful on both sides of the political aisle. When a Republican wins, they become foreign policy advisers. When a Democrat wins, they become foreign policy advisers. When they screw up, they face no ramifications and continue to be foreign policy advisers.

How can we expect change when the same people continue to dominate both parties and are never held to account?

"Seahawks are winning " Actually the US offensive squad has been losing everywhere pretty badly. The best they have done is a possible draw in Afghanistan, if all goes well. So a better explanation is they are looking for a win somewhere, even if somewhere is Ukraine.

This also has something to do with the NATO expansion scheme that fell off the rails with the rather insane Georgia vs Russia war. Who thought that one up?

Also worth noting is that there is a tremendous incentive to run out the pension clock. So these people need to stay employed for 20 years.

What, exactly, are U.S. interests vis-à-vis the Ukraine and Putin/Russia? Let us pray that these interests are not shaped by neocons, as neocons are nothing more than globalist Wilsonian democracy-spreading liberal wolves in wolves clothing (other liberals being wolves in sheep's clothing). If Nuland's - and the U.S.'s - objective is merely to promote the attainment of neocon liberals' desiderata, then that objective is inherently harmful to and undesirable for Americans and for the U.S., because that objective has nothing to do with Realpolitik and everything to do with liberal globalist utopianism, for whose desiderata the neocons are ever keen to sacrifice Americans' lives, livelihoods, national identity, culture, social capital, tax dollars, the Constitution, and anything else that will perpetuate and enlarge their power in the globalist utopia racket.

One thing is for sure: Nuland is no Bismarck, and neither is any one, or more, of the U.S.'s or Europe's big shots., which goes a long way to explain our current predicament in being the involuntary victims of globalist power elite-imposed national suicide.

Mass non-white immigration and forced assimilation in all white countries and only in white countries won't just happen, because Putin isn't pushing it. Ukraine has to be forced to play by EU rules.

And in case there's any concern that purely goyish Ukrainians might have a sentimental preference for the continued existence of Ukrainians, put Yats in charge.

The Jewish power elite do everything that is beneficial for Jews and Israel and openly can say good things about Jews. The WASP elite do everything that is bad for whites and NEVER say anything good about whites (prove me wrong, when was the last time any politician said anything positive about whites). Also the Jewish power elite do not prostrate themselves to WASPs, WASPS can only be allowed to have power if they prostrate themselves to Jewish power elite.

See the difference now ?

What's the point of all this Juden-angst? If these folks were WASP's, Steve wouldn't be dog-whistling like this.

If he were "dog-whistling" over WASPs, no one would object (no amount of repetition seems to drive this point home, does it?).

When Jews are pacifists, they are declared a hostile un-American clique; when they finally begin to move toward the political right and become pro-military, they are... a hostile un-American clique. Why don't you just come out and say that you believe Jews should be banned from public service?

Jewish pacifists in gov't, Jewish warmongers in gov't, great. How about the anti-Israel Jews? Or pro-Israel ones who acknowledge white "gentiles'" right to have for themselves what Jews have for themselves in Israel? Either will do.

Jewish pacifists don't seem to get much done vis-a-vis Israeli aggresion. Jewish warmongers don't seem to think care about any warmongering but the Jewish kind.

I didn't know Boehner was a Jew. Or did you not read that post from earlier today?

Yeah but that's stuff's always about pols betraying their own people and stabbing them in the back. The Jew stuff's always about Jews doing the right thing for Jewry.

The Ukrainian opposition is led by the boxer Klitschko, the west Ukrainian ultra-nationalist Tyahnibok and a man named Yatseniuk, who is said to be ethnically, but not religiously Jewish. The main point Nuland makes in that conversation is that Yatseniuk (whom she calls Yats) should be in the future Ukrainian government, but Klitschko and Tagnebok shouldn't be.

See? Predictive power.

Yes, it's totally a Jewish conspiracy to put the anti-Semitic Ukrainian nationalists in power.

Of course, Occam's razor suggests that Ms. Nuland is just reflecting the retarded Western consensus, held by countless WASP intellectuals and officials, that it is a matter of great importance to thwart Putin's reasonable ambitions in Ukraine.

[MERIT!!!] It's mundane and obvious.


(Occam's Razor suggests Jooz pursuing Jooish interests.)

If Jews were mundane, they'd try to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

(And I'm not sure, but calling the American political consensus "retarded" might be anti-semitic.)

Do you have a problem with the vast majority of WASPs in prominent positions who are pushing the same idiotic policies most Jews in similarly prominent positions are pushing? (e.g. John S. McCain III, Lindsey Graham, John Forbes Kerry, etc.)

The distinction between "we should have an ethnic homeland, and you should not" and "you should have an ethnic homeland, and we should not" is a subtle, but important one.

Can you explain how the machinations of the Jewish power elite differ from the machinations of the WASP liberal power elite?

Sure:

"We must have a homeland, and you must not," vs. "you must have a homeland, and we must not." Roughly similar to the difference between National Socialism and communism.

I noticed Nuland in February 2012, on hearing her CSPAN-broadcast State Dept. briefing about the arrest of U.S. staffers of NGOs active in Egyptian politics.

Her explanations of the official U.S. government stance were pitch-perfect: ill-informed, patronizing, hectoring, and schoolmarmish, with an overlay of old-fashioned imperialist cant. If the intent was to offend patriotic Egyptians across their political spectrum: Mission Accomplished.

Nuland's use of the first person plural was particularly apt: We continue to make progress advancing our Arab Spring movement; We must ensure that these arrests won't hinder the progress we have made in delivering human rights to all Egyptians.

On and on.

Maybe another commenter can locate the transcript; it was a classic.

Interestingly, it proved impossible to find a contact form or email address by which to reach Ms. Nuland. It's not as though the little people ought to be listened to, anyway.

No, Ockham's razor suggests that a person who appears to be pursuing her self-interest in fact intends to pursue her self-interest. The "retarded Western consensus" has a source, and that source is people like the Kagans and Nuands.

I always kinda wondered about that myself. The mostly WASP Wall Street of the 20s did even more damage than the heavily-Jewish Wall Street of the 80s and 2000s, and Woodrow Wilson didn't need any Jews to drag him into an idiotic war.

I agree the country's declining, but how much of that is the natural tendency of other countries to catch up after WW2? The real problem, IMHO, is the concentration of power in the hands of the wealthy, which conservatives always support. They then screw the black and white poor alike.

The leaking of this tape is a yet another PR success for Putin. The leaders of the opposition in the Ukraine, Yatsenyuk especially, were shown to be US neocon stooges. Jay Carney has basically confirmed that the tape is real - monumental stupidity. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. The smart thing for him and his bosses to do was to leave some doubt, to let people think that Putin's or Yanukovich's or Klitcshko's guys might have created this tape in a studio, i.e. faked it.

Why did Carney instead admit that the tape is real? To make the most idiotically inept rhetorical point imaginable for someone in his situation, namely to accuse Russia of phone-tapping. The worst phone-tapper in human history, the US government, has just accused someone else of tapping its phones.

It is so rare in life to see the good guys being better at PR than the crooks, but Putin has demonstrated it again and again. He makes them look not just evil, but stupid. It's as if I'm watching a cartoon, not real life.

If Carney didn't admit that the tape is real, I would have surely doubted its authenticity.

You're about 30 years out of date:

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/articles/MacDonald-KaufmannII.html#JI
(...)
Kaufmann charts the decline of Anglo-Saxons and the rise of the Jews in all areas of the American elite, from university departments of Political Science to the federal civil service. “For twenty years, the de-WASP-ing of the ruling elite in America has proceeded at a breathtaking pace.” Kaufmann cites the important study of Lerner et al. (American Elites, 1996) showing that Jews were highly overrepresented in several areas of the elite, especially in the media and the legal profession. Jews outnumbered Anglo-Saxons 58–21 among elites in television, 48 to 25 among “public interest” elites, and 40 to 21 among legal elites. The same study found that, “in stark contrast to the Jews, WASPs were not overrepresented within the ranks of the national elite.” Frank Salter has shown that on issues of concern to the Jewish community (Israel, immigration, ethnic policy in general), Jewish groups have four times the influence of European Americans despite representing approximately 2.5% of the population.

These are very high overrepresentations indeed. White Protestants became underrepresented in corporate elites by the 1980s

Many of them don't. Their sons decide to join the military, so the families support them and are proud of them because they're showing courage and following tradition. It has little to do with whom they're fighting for or against at a given time.

A significant percentage of young men have always been attracted to military service. Imagine what it was like before the advent of mass media. When a young man from the outskirts of Rome joined the legions and wound up fighting under Julius Caesar, do you think he had any idea what the geopolitical situation was in Gaul? Of course not. He wanted to go fight and prove something to himself.

It's just something young guys do, in other words, if they live in societies where it hasn't been denigrated.

Yes...and no.

I'm willing to admit this is an effective response given present-day considerations, and it's completely understandable you'd (or anyone would) latch onto it. I have no doubt there are substantial (read: enormous) differences in motivation, but these are subject to the usual strictures regarding...sigh..."anti-Semitism."

Objectively - that is, completely bracketing out my own personal feelings - my take is that the JPE, if it's to retain its moral standing in anything like its present form, will have to make concessions both regarding Israel - as is already being done (see: "J-Street," but it doesn't yet go far enough) - as well as white identity and the issue of Jewish influence, the latter which will be a be much, much tougher hurdle.

And yet, the "difficulty" regarding the latter is far more psychological than it is practical. These are deep-seated patterns of thought with a storied and painful history behind them, but speculatively looking forward to a day when the present taboos are critically weakened the earlier the JPE positions itself on the side of "Whites are people too" the more effective its future advocacy will prove. There is sufficient "material" in western history to "explain away," so to speak (and I'm only being partially facetious), policies undertaken over the last fifty years, but unless a "pro-white" stance is assumed at some point I can see only trouble in the offing.

The Russian Wikipedia states that Yatsenyuk (Yats on the tape) was included in a publication called "The 50 Best-Known Jews in Ukraine" put out by the Ukrainian Academy of Jewish History and Culture in September of 2009. It then quotes one Jewish leader in Ukraine stating that he's heard that Yatsenyuk is partially Jewish and another stating that Yatesnyuk is not Jewish. Yatsenyuk has stated that his parents are Ukrainian and that he's a member of the Greco-Catholic church. This sounds like it could be a legalistic, politically-charged dispute about mixed parentage.

pat said...

You probably should have mentioned that Ukraine is probably the most anti-Semitic nation on earth.

When I was working in San Francisco at a telecommunications firm established by Russian Jewish immigrants, most of my staff were Ukrainians. The rest were all Russians. They wanted an American supervisor to keep the peace.

I couldn't understand the deep hatred that everyone seemed to have for each other until one of my sweet natured Ukrainian coders opened up about his view of Jews. He revealed a very deep and nasty streak.

The Germans killed maybe six million Jews but the Soviets possibly killed even more Ukrainians. And since so many Communist leaders were Jews, many Ukrainians think they were starved to death by the Jews.

There are a couple Ukrainian anti-Semitic web sites where you can get a taste of their viewpoint. It isn't pretty.

Ukraine may seem unimportant, but I can see how this could get out of hand in a very, very bad way. Ukraine has a sizable Russian minority; the Crimea and the provinces bordering Russia in the east are in fact majority Russian-speaking. I could see Ukraine splitting up as a result. What happens if the pro-Western faction takes over, and the pro-Russian faction decides they want to split off? Suppose the pro-Western faction decides to use force to keep Ukraine together. Then Russia invades under the pretext of "protecting" their fellow Russians. Would the West merely howl in protest like they did with Georgia, or would they respond with force in kind? Worse case scenario - it kicks off WW3.

BTW, it seems to me that Klitschko would be great for Ukraine to have in its government. Consider:

3) He speaks Russian, German, and English.

4) He has personal ties to Germany (where he trained, often fights, and has a large fan base), the US (same), and Russia.

5) He's smart (has a Ph.D. in sports science or something, and the Soviets were more advanced at a lot of this stuff than the West).

6) He has some political experience, having run unsuccessfully for mayor of Kiev.

Catholics have risen in power, on both the left and right. The SCOTUS has 6 Catholics (including all 5 of the 'right' justices), 0 Protestants. So yes, de-WASPing, but much of that is due to growth in Catholic representation. As partially evidenced by NRO, the mainstream conservative movement has been heavily intellectually influenced by guys like W.F. Buckley. NRO's point guy on pro-Ukrainian nationalism is naturally a Catholic, George Weigel.

So yes, less Protestants. More Catholics.

You're missing the point of half the stuff Steve writes about. White, non-Jewish elites, are pursuing their own self-interest, at the expense of middle class and poor whites. They identify with other educated, urban, irreligious people more than they do with people who share their skin color and national origin but not much else.

The French ambassador to the UK said something similar in 2001. Though he was not sacked, he was reassigned to another post, but the French basically defended him. He was attacked in the UK, US, and of course Israel.


I figured the original comment was an attempt at ironic ridicule of the positions of other commenters (like me) who stress the extent of Jewish power. You, at least, think I was wrong, so I'll point out that James Baker, SOS under GHWB, said, "Fuck the Jews; they don't vote for us anyway." And he survived.

Vicente Fox's ancestry:

"Vicente Fox was born in Guanajuato on July 2, 1942, the second of nine children. His father was José Luis Fox Pont, a Mexican citizen,[4] and his mother Mercedes Quesada Etxaide, was Basque from San Sebastian, Gipuzkoa, Spain. Fox's paternal grandfather was born Joseph Louis Fuchs in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of German Catholic immigrants, Louis Fuchs and Catherina Elisabetha Flach, of Strasbourg, now in France. The "Fox" surname was changed from the German "Fuchs" during the 1870s."

Interesting to see just how purely White Fox was in terms of ancestry.

And what is the Jewish self-interest in the Ukraine? Bringing down a government that has been friendly to the remaining Jews there and allowed them to prosper and bringing to power a new government that has close ties to anti-Semites? Yes, clearly, Victoria Nuland is pushing the Jewish self-interest.

They see Putin as the main enemy and are not concerned about the ultra-right Ukrainians. The anti-Semitic nationalists are just cannon fodder/useful idiots-they'll never get close to power. Even if West and East Ukraine separate no one "unacceptable" will be allowed into the govt of Western Ukraine. Ask the Iranians how much sanctions hurt.

That's quite a bait-and-switch. I have no clue and little interest in what's going on in Ukraine. My point was about these elites in general, and you can't seriously doubt that it's correct.

As for Ukraine and the contention that "Ms. Nuland is just reflecting the retarded Western consensus", the point is that that consensus is developed by the organized Jewish community to serve Jewish interests, and if she's basing her decisions on that "retarded" consensus, then she is acting to further the Jewish community's self-interest.

This is correct. And this is exactly what Ms. Nuland talked about in that tapped conversation - not letting Klitschko and Tahnyebok (the west Unkranian nationalist) get too close to power. It's a divide and rule game, and sadly the West Ukranian nationalists have fallen for it. They're accepting the devil's help to spite a neighbor.

Most of the Ukraine can be described as Russia with a provincial accent, with some areas being full-on, straight-up Russia. The westernmost 10% (or thereabouts) of the country, the area around L'viv/L'vov/Lwow/Lemburg (the Ukrainian/Russian/Polish/German names of the same city) has a culture of its own however. The locals' language is not mutually intelligible with Russian and crucially, the locals are Greco-Catholics. This is where intense Ukrainian nationalism comes from. In a fair world that area, called Galicia, would have a state of its own and the other 90% of the Ukraine would go back to Russia, but the world is not fair, so that's unlikely to happen.

The neocons use Galicians as extras for anti-Putin demonstrations in Kiev, but they don't want them in power in Ukraine. Why? Because Galicians are really, really nationalist. And religiously conservative.

What is the Jews' problem with Putin? He has been rather good to them. He is, for example, politically and personally friendly with Israel's nationalistic foreign minister, Avigdor Liberman. Domestically, Jews are as safe as they have ever been in Russia, and while Khodorkovsky may not have done so well, plenty of other Jews have done very well there--Prokhorov is partially Jewish; Abramovich was given a province in the far east as his personal fiefdom; M. Fridman has become the second-wealthiest person in Russia. Shouldn't these guys tell their American co-conspirators to back off?

Or maybe its just that the thinking of elite Jews isn't colored in this matter by being Jews, but rather by being members of the American elite.

Elite whites are doing a fine job at creating the circumstances for them to pass their genes into the future. They are marrying other elite whites with great discrimination, they are taking an ever-larger percentage of the nation's wealth, they are getting their children into IQ-selective pre-kindergartens that create the connections needed for their kids to be elite and be able to pass their genes on and so forth.

Whether some 100-IQ white couple in Ohio is able to afford having children is none of their concern. They've got nothing in common with them other than skin color. Their kids are doing fine regardless.

Upper middle class whites are having fewer children on average than 100-IQ whites. Billionaires are having more children than that, but they're a demographic drop in the bucket.

"Or maybe its just that the thinking of elite Jews isn't colored in this matter by being Jews, but rather by being members of the American elite."

No, most Jews in Russia are anti-Putin too. The Khodorkovsky affair, the Berezovsky affair, Russia's revival under Putin, his obvious patriotism - there's no shortage of reasons.

Putin.

After the Berlin wall fell the US sent "advisers" to help Russia's transition to a free market economy. Those advisers looted and sold Russia's mineral wealth to the Jewish oligarchs.

Putin managed to grab some of it back and chase the oligarchs out.

Ever since the US government and media have been waging war on Russia and Putin.

(including supporting Chechen terrorist groups)

The difference between the Jewish and non-Jewish members of the power elite is that the non-Jews can follow their *individual* self interest but not their group / tribal self interest.

Here's someone who seems to know what he's talking about re Ukraine:

http://blog.jim.com/war/cathedral-imperialism-revealed.html/comment-page-1#comment-508636
Yes, the levels of hate for ‘banderovtsy’ (Ukrainian nationalists) in the East and in Crimea are very high. Never mind that it was their own robber barons who dismantled their industry etc. and who now compose the Ukrainian government. Russia’s propaganda machine contributes to this a lot, as most people there watch Russian TV channels. The volume and level of propaganda pouring out of the latter is quite astonishing. For instance, they simultaneously introduce the pejorative ‘zhydobanderovtsy’ (zhyd = Jew) and accuse historical ‘banderovtsy’ of rampant anti-semitism.

As for federation, that isn’t going to work unless the top-level law is credible and enforced fairly. As things stand, there is almost no trust on either side, so prospects are dim. Still, many people even among nationalists would agree with you, at least tentatively and privately. The problem is that the nationalists have no say on the official level. They demanded a seat at the negotiation table (reasonable in view of what I wrote above, I think) and were turned down by both sides.

They may not be pursuing their self-interest, but it certainly isn't the case that individual self-interest is identical to group interest. Salter is good but you need a wider grasp of evolutionary biology.

At 6'7" he matches the famously tall Charles de Gaulle. But Vere Bird, first prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, overshadowed both at 6'8".

True. The issue is they stick together AGAINST whites.
Similarly, blacks often fume at one another, but they unite AGAINST whites.

It's the dynamics of that AGAINST that is at issue here. If the world were only made up of Jews with no gentiles, yes, Jews would be fighting against one another and big time.

There are lots of divisions among Chinese too, but notice how all Chinese--mainland, HK, overseas, and etc all united during 2008 when Tibetans tried to sabotage the Olympic torch relay.
Chinese will scream at one another but will scream as one AGAINST their perceived enemies.

They can't do anything that the Jews and Chinese can't do for themselves, and they will be pursuing a relatively individualist strategy, so there's no way they will outcompete members of other groups to become a market-dominant minority. They will cease to exist in short order.

"Also, the surge, which the Kagans helped formulate, did work, didn't it?"

No. The largest Shiite block, which is very close to Iran, cemented control over the country and Iran called off it's proxy militias. That's when the war-scale violence ended. By the time the "surge" happened, the Sunni insurgents had been crushed by Shiite torture/death squads which operated with US approval and most of the attacks on foreign troops were from Shiite groups being directed by Iran. With their allies firmly in control of the central government and the US itching to leave, there was no reason for Iran or Shiite Iraqis to prolong the conflict.
