[introductory material] ". . ."
[27:05] Jacob Dreizen: [speaking of the Maidan coup] "... at the key moment the will of the security forces broke, in part because their leaders had their overseas assets threatened by Uncle Sam at just the right moment. And so, basically, they stood down and then Yanukovich was overthrown and had to flee to Russia. And so the moral of the story is that you're not really a sovereign regime, you're not a sovereign country if you have your money stashed abroad. Because that is a pressure point and Uncle Sam can bring that to bear because all those banks are ultimately under Uncle Sam's purview whether they're British or Swiss or whatever."
So that's the story of how Yanukovich was brought down. And when the revolutionaries took power it was a very weird situation because they did not represent a majority of the Ukrainian public. At that point a majority, or a very very large portion anyway of the Ukrainian public was politically inert and totally, just really sort of apolitical by that point. Yanukovich did not even have 40 percent support in his hometown of Donetsk. And what they did when they came in with a revolutionary regime with really whacky ideas that they need to rename the streets and redo the educational system and change people's thinking and change people's identity where, you know, We were always Ukrainian, We were never Russian, and even the Russians are going to become Ukrainian inside the Ukraine. And it was all like they wanted to build, sort of, a new Ukrainian person, right? To replace the sort of neutral Ukraine and the Soviet legacy Ukraine that had existed previously."
[28:58] "And you can, sort of, draw some parallels with the way that some of the, may I say, Democrats that came [into office] in 2021. It was an election, it wasn't a revolution, but they came in with these, you know, we're taking over. We've got a mandate. We're going to take over the schools. We're going to redo everything. We're going to pitch this transgender stuff on your kids, whatever else. So, really, really similar. Down to the renaming of streets. Renaming of schools. Taking down statues. Putting up different statues. All of that stuff that happened in the Ukraine since 2014, has been repeated to some extent in America since 2020 actually. I think I've made the point at one time or another on my mailing list that the United States has pursued a sort of state of Ukrainization where our political system is becoming more like Ukraine. So the more that we support Ukraine, the more that we actually become like the Ukraine."
[30:17] "A very dangerous situation. Now, so this revolutionary regime they went into the schools and they said, OK, Even in Russian-speaking areas where no one cares to speak Ukrainian unless you're going to the DMV to get your license renewed or something, we're going to make all the kids study in Ukrainian. So, first the early grades and then up into the middle schools. They just kept creeping. It was a slow process because they knew that the public wasn't with them and they couldn't do it all on Day One, right?
. . .
37:14] "The U.S. has so much influence and so much control over even Ukrainian domestic policy: Ok, you have to do some land reforms, you have to do this, you have to do that. You have to cut social spending or you're not going to get your next tranch from the IMF. It's total control. And it's indefinite. Normally, when you have a situation like the Thai or Korean"
. . .
[45:37] "... What keeps the E.U. together is the money flows. These countries went from the socialist block under Russia. They had an economic collapse. They were bought out by a new sugar daddy. It's about the money. No one in Bulgaria cares about liberal values. It's about the money, and the foreign aid from Brussels, Germany, and so forth. If the money loses its value due to a hyperinflationary situation brought on in part by a completely manufactured energy crisis, the glue of the E.U. is called into question. I'm not saying it's going to dissolve formally, but it could become something like the Holy Roman Empire where it's all form and no function."
. . .
[1:22:25] Jacob Dreizen: "The Empire doesn't care about that. The Empire will pursue its prerogatives. This is life and death. OK? If they have another Afghanistan in the Ukraine, they're potentially done, and they know it. So they will push this thing as far as it will go. And remember I said the 40 billion dollars for Ukraine -- not all of it is for Ukraine -- by the end of this year it's going to be 70 or 80 billion. And next year who knows? It might be double that. I don't know. Because there is no limit. Because they need to win this thing. So that's what makes it so dangerous is they can't lose. Likewise, Russia can't lose. Not that it is going to, but if Russia loses they're done, you know? They're going to get cut up like China in the late 19th century in zones of influence, or whatever. It's just, you know, going to be the end of the Russian state as we know it."
[1:23:18] "So, you've got two unstoppable forces that are colliding. And in my estimation, the only potential outcome where the West loses in terms of, you know, it has to back down, is just a total collapse of the system. That's the only way that, you know, I'm seeing as the most likely outcome at this point."
Viva Frei: "..."
Robert Barnes: "..."
[1:26:36] Jacob Dreizen: "...there's sort of an over-reliance in the West, sort of an ideology, that our weapons and our training if provided to a foreign client in sufficient volumes is infallible. Because we are us and we're so great. And if we train the Afghan Army for 20 years and we give them tens-of-billions of dollars worth of hardware that ultimately they're going to do something with it. And what they don't understand is that everything is decided by the human aspect. And the human aspect with regards to Ukraine is that there is a limited proportion of the population of Ukraine that is prepared to fight and potentially die for the Ukraine."
"All this stuff about, you know, Zelensky saying there's 700,000 men that are under arms for the Ukraine today and the Royal United Service Institute in the UK and others picked up on. And at the Royal United Serive Institute they actually have a writer that actually broke it down. He completely and arbitrarily said, well, you know he's going to write that it's 250 out of the seven hudred fifty thousand are regular army and 450 thousand are militia. Completely arbitrary. It's literally this one writer analyst, you know, in London broke down Zelensky's 700,000 into those two categories."
