“You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8: 44)
Item #1, from Reuters: “…the Kremlin sent troops to annex Crimea…”  The truth: an overwhelming majority of Crimean citizens voted to secede from Ukraine and join Russia.
Item #2, from Reuters: protesters in Donetsk, if attacked by Kiev forces, “could prompt the Kremlin to intervene to protect the local Russian-speaking population, a repeat of the scenario in Crimea.”  The truth: an overwhelming majority of Crimean citizens voted to secede from Ukraine and join Russia.
Take a look at the image you can hopefully see above. On the left is Nurse Mildred Ratched from the 1975 multiple Oscar-winning movie, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. On the right is Victoria Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. Notice how Ms. Nuland looks like a reincarnation of Nurse Ratched.
Victoria Nuland, the Nurse Ratched look-alike, told a Senate panel this past week that current U.S. and EU sanctions are “biting” and “pinching” the Russian economy, “and we’re now considering further measures.” 
“But Europe is far from ready to issue sanctions on Moscow that would undercut its own financial stability while risking its main source of energy.”  (Further background: Who Runs Barter Town? Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of April 12, 2014.)
Above you can hopefully see an image of a meeting of conspiracy theorists. They do not like what “Nurse Ratched” (Victoria Nuland) has been doing lately. She has been lying through her teeth all along during this latest Ukraine situation, they say. One of these theorists went so far as to claim, “Every lie is like a scourge on the back of Jesus.”
“Every lie is like a scourge on the back of Jesus.” Could it be that our own U.S. State Department is a far worse liar than are the Russians? In a recent article, syndicated columnist Patrick J. Buchanan asked, “Is God now on Russia’s side?” That was the title of Buchanan’s opinion piece. Buchanan reports that “ex-Communist Whittaker Chambers who exposed Alger Hiss as a Soviet spy, was, at the time of his death in 1964, writing a book on ‘The Third Rome.'” The first Rome was of course Rome itself. The second Rome was Constantinople, Byzantium, (today’s Istanbul). “The successor city to Byzantium, the Third Rome, the last Rome to the old believers, was – Moscow.” 
Moscow a holdout of Christianity? But aren’t they Communists over there? This is a news flash to many Americans: Russian Communism ended over 20 years ago. Here is another news flash: It was Western financiers who backed the rise of Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks in October 1917. And another news flash for my fellow countrymen and women: our U.S. State Department backed neo-Nazis in the Kiev uprising of February 2014.
Kind of makes you wonder, no? The more we pound our chests and say, “USA!”, the more God seems to leave us. Maybe it is time to remember the very first of the Ten Commandments: I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before Me. This may not sit well with the chest-pounding apes, but at this point the truer Christianity may very well reside in Moscow.
