One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

The backstory of this article is that Russia was planning a gas pipeline under the Black Sea to arrive in Greece and from there move up the Balkans serving nearly everyone all the way up to Vienna. Everyone was happy about that. But then came Washington’s lies demonizing Russia by falsely claiming that Putin had attacked Ukraine. This mischief was followed by sanctions that hurt the EU much more than Russia. Then the US forced Bulgaria to block the Russian pipeline. Still it could have gone through Greece and Macedonia, but the U.S. responded that in that event Russia would have to pay a toll for all of the gas delivered by Russians in Europe. Undaunted, Putin made a deal with Turkey (a NATO nation!) to bring the pipeline just outside the border from Greece, so if there ever was to be such a toll it would be paid by Europeans. To solve that problem, Washington decided that the time had come to stop the Russian pipeline by overthrowing the government of Macedonia …with the results that you can read about below!
Macedonia has just neutralised an armed group whose sponsors had been
under surveillance for at least eight months. By doing so, it has
prevented a new attempt at a coup d’État, planned by Washington for the
17th of May. The aim was to spread the chaos already infecting Ukraine
into Macedonia in order to stall the passage of a Russian gas pipeline
to the European Union.
May 26, 2015: On the 9th of May, 2015, the Macedonian police launched
a dawn operation to arrest an armed group which had infiltrated the
country and which was suspected of preparing a number of attacks.
The police evacuated the civilian population before launching the
assault. The suspects opened fire, which led to a bitter firefight,
leaving 14 terrorists and 8 members of the police forces dead. 30 people
were taken prisoner. There were a large number of wounded
Not a terrorist act, but an attempted coup d’État
The Macedonian police were clearly well-informed before they launched
their operation. According to the Minister for the Interior, Ivo
Kotevski, the group was preparing a very important operation for the
17th May (the date of the demonstration organised by the Albanophone
opposition in Skopje).
The identification of the suspects has made it possible to determine
that they were almost all ex-members of the UÇK (Kosovo Liberation
Among them were :
• Sami Ukshini, known as « Commandant Sokoli », whose family played a historic rôle in the UÇK.
• Rijai Bey, ex-bodyguard of Ramush Haradinaj (himself a drug
trafficker, military head of the UÇK, then Prime Minister of Kosovo. He
was twice condemned for war crimes by the International Penal Tribunal
for ex-Yugoslavia, but was acquitted because 9 crucial witnesses were
murdered during the trial).
• Dem Shehu, currently bodyguard for the Albanophone leader and founder
of the BDI party, Ali Ahmeti. • Mirsad Ndrecaj, known as the « NATO
Commandant », grandson of Malic Ndrecaj, who is commander of the 132nd
Brigade of the UÇK.
The principal leaders of this operation, including Fadil Fejzullahu
(killed during the assault), are close to the United States ambassador
in Skopje, Paul Wohlers.
Paul Wohlers is the son of US diplomat Lester Wohlers, who played an
important part in Atlantist propaganda, and directed the cinematographic
service of the U.S. Information Agency. Paul’s brother, Laurence
Wohlers, is presently an ambassador in the Central African Republic.
Paul Wohlers himself, an ex-Navy pilot, is a specialist in
counter-espionage. He was the assistant director of the United States
Department of State Operations Center (in other words, the service for
the surveillance and protection of diplomats).
To eliminate any doubt about the identity of the operation’s
sponsors, the General Secretary of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, intervened
even before the assault was over – not to declare his condemnation of
terrorism and his support for the constitutional government of
Macedonia, but to paint a picture of the terrorist group as a legitimate
ethnic opposition : « I am following the events in Kumanovo with deep
concern. I would like to express my sympathy to the families of those
who were killed or wounded. It is important that all polititcal and
community leaders work together to restore order and begin a transparent
investigation in order to find out what happened. I am calling for
everyone to show reserve and avoid any new escalation of violence, in
the intersts of the nation and also the whole region. » You would have
to be blind not to understand.
In January 2015, Macedonia foiled an attempted coup d’état organised
for the head of the opposition, the social-democrat Zoran Zaev. Four
people were arrested, and Mr. Zaev had his passport confiscated, while
the Atlantist press began its denunciation of an « authoritarian drift
by the régime ».
Zoran Zaev is publicly supported by the embassies of the United
States, the United Kingdom, Germany and Holland. But the only trace left
of this attempted coup d’état indicates the responsibility of the US.
On the 17th May, Zoran Zaev’s social-democrat party (SDSM)  was
supposed to organise a demonstration. It intended to distribute 2,000
masks in order to prevent the police from identifying the terrorists
taking part in the march. During the demonstration, the armed group,
concealed behind their masks, were supposed to attack several
institutions and launch a pseudo-« revolution » comparable to the events
in Maidan Square, Kiev.
This coup d’État was coordinated by Mile Zechevich, an ex-employee of one of George Soros’ foundations.
In order to understand Washington’s urgency to overthrow the Macedonian
government, we have to go back and look at the gas pipeline war. Because
international politics is a huge chess-board on which every move by any
piece causes consequences for all the others.
The gas war
The United States have been attempting to sever communications
between Russia and the European Union since 2007. They managed to
sabotage the projet South Stream by obliging Bulgaria to cancel its
participation, but on the 1st December 2014, to everyone’s surprise,
Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a new project when he
succeeded in convincing his Turkish opposite number, Recep Tayyip
Erdoğan, to sign an agreement with him, despite the fact that Turkey is a
member of NATO . It was agreed that Moscow would deliver gas to
Ankara, and that in return, Ankara would deliver gas to the European
Union, thus bypassing the anti-Russian embargo by Brussels. On the 18th
of April 2015, the new Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsípras, gave his
agreement that the pipeline could cross his country  . As for
Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, he had already conluded
discrete negotiations last March . Finally, Serbia, which had been a
partner in the South Stream project, indicated to the Russian Minister
for Energy Aleksandar Novak, during his reception in Belgrade in April,
that Serbia was ready to switch to the Turkish Stream project .
To halt the Russian project, Washington has multiplied its
initiatives : ￼ in Turkey, it is supporting the CHP against President
Erdoğan, hoping this will cause him to lose the elections; ￼ in Greece,
on the 8th May, it sent Amos Hochstein, Directeur of the Bureau of
Energy Ressources, to demand that the Tsípras government give up its
agreement with Gazprom; ￼ it plans – just in case – to block the route
of the pipeline by placing one of its puppets in power in Macedonia;
￼ and in Serbia, it has restarted the project for the secession of the
small piece of territory – Voïvodine – which allows the junction with
Last comment, but not the least: Turkish Stream will also supply
Hungary and Austria, thus ending the alternative project negotiated by
the United States with President Hassan Rohani (against the advice of
the Revolutionary Guards) for supplying them with Iranian gas .
