A question of morality – references

A question of morality
A question of Sanity

The following is a long list of references.  related to my last post: A question of morality
The number of references are so overwhelming that they deserve their own post.
If you have questions about anything I said in the post itself, the answer to your question can most likely be found somewhere in the links below. Since the war is still going on and  new information is still coming in, I will keep adding links to this page.                                   

But you should feel free to ask anyway

State Of The Nation article from 2012 with a set of excellent further references:
Kiev Protests: Another CIA-Coordinated Color Revolution-In-Progress

“That CIA-sponsored coup d’etat was so successful that it has since been used as a model for every other CIA-manufactured scheme that has toppled governments and reversed fair election outcomes the world over. In fact, the Ukraine is where the various social network utilities were used so effectively that the new MO has become known as the digital blitzkrieg. Never in human history have so many citizens been stampeded in the direction of overthrowing their government while being completely ignorant of the real forces manipulating the cattle prods.” (emphasis mine)

Tucker: There is something really wrong
The US is spending an insane amount of money on arming Ukraine.
Just for reference: Biden gave altogether $54B to Ukraine. That is $162 for each American and  $377 for each American tax payer. The money was not taken from them, just borrowed on their behalf. There will be interest payable on it.

An article making the same moral argument I do, only without the history and background. It is a must-read:

“If the Biden Administration cared about protecting America’s well-being, then instead of financing Ukraine’s war effort, it would be working for a negotiated end to the war by the quickest means possible.”

This is from the same source, just to show you that some people clearly saw the problem way before the conflict turned into a war:

Both of these articles above are essential to read and I completely agree with them, but they leave out a few essential elements of the conflict that I may address in an upcoming post

A passionate article with detailed proof of deliberate Western media lies
No, it’s NOT “fake news.” It’s Nazi propaganda. quote:

“It has been correctly said that a respect for the truth is the basis for all morality, so a war against the truth is a war against morality, against all that is good and decent. Without an ability to see reality and detect lies, without a moral compass, people are literally no more than dumb beasts, mules to be worked and exploited by their owners, or sheep to be led to the slaughter. “Fake news” is a term a bit too cute and cozy for the black art of intentionally erasing the very intellect and morality that makes us human. It seeks to dumb down and degrade Humanity to the point to where people are no longer human. And that point is fast approaching, and for many, is already here.”

Too bad this is just 2 stage  stage #3 is coming next and that is shortsighted of food.They will not stop until they are done with they one world gov.
