Jack Lew Keeping Ukraine In Line

The Empire will be obeyed.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is in Ukraine. Don't think for a minute that this isn't part of the US stick handling things in that country.

According to the Treasury, Secretary Lew is in Kiev, Ukraine to meet with senior government officials and discuss the additional U.S. assistance announced this month.

In the morning, the Secretary met with Ukraine Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko. Jaresko was born in Chicago but is ethnically Ukrainian. However, she has held several economics-related position at the US Department of State and also was founding partner and chief executive of the private equity group Horizon Capital. She received a Master's degree in Public Policy from the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government in 1989 and a B.Sc. degree in Accounting from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois in 1987.

Secretary Lew and the Finance Minister delivered statements and signed a declaration of intent to initiate steps to negotiate a U.S. loan guarantee with Ukraine.

Later in the morning, the Secretary will meet with members of the Ukrainian Rada (Parliament) and community leaders.

In the afternoon, Secretary Lew will meet with National Bank of Ukraine Governor Valeriya Gontareva. In some mysterious way, last year all of Ukraine's gold reserves disappeared. (Possibly transferred to the NY Fed.) Gontareva is believed to have played a key role in the disappearance.

Later in the afternoon, the Secretary will meet with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Yatsenyuk, of course, was mentioned by US officials, in a call secretly recorded and leaked, before the coup as the person they wanted to head Ukraine.

With all the dirty work done, in the evening, Secretary Lew will depart Kiev en route back to Washington.



  1. Ukraine Crisis Worsens
    With hot war currently waging all across southern Ukraine, the program last evening was a more comprehensive update of the situation than you'll find anywhere else in the western media. Among the topics discussed:

    What events led to the current expansion of hostilities? Why now?
    What might be the short-term goals of the NAF (Novorussiya Armed Forces)?
    The significance of the possible NAF move on Mariupol.
    The current news out if the U.S. where columnists and warhawks are pleading for Russia to be excluded from the SWIFT system. How will this impact the other BRIC nations and the U.S. dollar as reserve currency? Might this action cause Russia to expropriate other nation's assets held in Russia?
    That NATO has long since lost the mantle of a "defensive organization".
    Reports that NATO and U.S. naval forces are building in The Black Sea.
    The re-emergence of Victoria Nuland as a spokesperson for US policy in Ukraine.
    The significance of Poland NOT inviting Russia to attend Auschwitz memorial services and the further significance of Ukraine PM "Yats" attempting to rewrite the history of WWII.

    As you can tell, there's A LOT here and this podcast requires a thorough listen and your full attention.

    Look, I've been bringing these podcasts to you for nearly a year. Why? Because first and foremost, Ukraine Crisis is an existential threat to the current global financial system and The Great Keynesian Experiment. However, this is also an extremely dangerous situation for the entire world. As this crisis deepens, all of humanity is becoming threatened on a level not seen since The Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.

    Again, I beg you to please make the time to listen to this entire podcast and it is incumbent upon you to stay up-to-date on this rapidly escalating situation.

  2. Kind of looks like Moe Greene, don't he?
