Gustav Klimt VERSUS Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter, ET AL | “Plausible Deniability” | The Big Picture of the Geopolitical Chess Game: Ukraine is A “SQUARE ON THE CHESSBOARD”

There is the risk that in last desperation Washington would trigger an all destructive nuclear war. This is doubtful, though, since the banking and corporate elite of the Anglo-Zionist Empire, those who pull the strings on Obama’s actions, are too self-centered to risk auto-destruction.   Big Picture of the Geopolitical Chess Game: Ukraine is A “Square on the Chessboard” continued below ...

Click to watch: Operation Gladio - BBC Time Watch 3 Part Series June 1992 

Witness the following from the period of the Cold War, where synthetic terror was used in Western Europe in order to convince the increasingly skeptical Western European public that the Communist threat was real – revealed ex post facto in the BBC documentary in 1992 on NATO’s Operation Gladio. Part-3 of the Gladio documentary has the following lovely statement quoted from the US Army’s Top Secret Field Manual:

“Top Secret: There may be times when host country governments show passivity or indecision in the face of Communist subversion … US Army Intelligence must have the means of launching special operations which will convince host country governments and public opinion of the reality of the insurgent danger … US Army Intelligence should seek to penetrate the insurgency by means of agents of special assignments, with the task of forming special action groups among the most radical elements of the insurgency.”

Replacing “Communist subversion” in the text above with “Islamofascist terror” or “domestic-terrorists’ terror” makes what is being stated in this BBC documentary ominous. It begs the commonsensical question: Is wanton acts of terrorism inflicted upon innocent civilians still a Machiavellian part of statecraft today?

According to James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counter Intelligence Operations from 1954 to 1974, and under whose watch all the momentous terroristic murders of America’s most rebellious political leaders transpired (JFK, RFK, MLK, X), Machiavelli is statecraft: “Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state”

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former president Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor, observed the following in his 1996 book The Grand Chessboard:

“It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America’s power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization. >> Read Zahir’s take on Making The Public Mind: The Mighty Wurlitzer


The Big Picture of the Geopolitical Chess Game: Ukraine is A “Square on the Chessboard”

Global Research, June 01, 2014


The Ukrainian civil war driven by the junta of the Kiev thugs and supported with arms and money by Washington, NATO and the European puppets, continues killing their country-men and women in the eastern Donbass area.  The Kiev army and death squads are accompanied by hundreds of Academi (former Blackwater) mercenaries and CIA advisors, mainly to make sure that the Kiev troops will not defect but execute their marching orders, namely fighting and killing their brothers and sisters, lest they risk being shot as traitors. 

To be sure, the Kiev criminal army does not take prisoners; they kill them on the spot. 

Not to mention the hundred Ukrainians killed by the infamous Maidan snipers – by now known to be  US paid mercenaries, just a day before the illegal coup d’état of 22 February 2014, that brought to power the current neo-Nazi government.

More and more compassionate people around the world, including from hapless Europe, are becoming restless, asking impatiently – how much longer blood must flow? – When will Russia intervene? – A legitimate question, so it would appear from the outset.

Understandably, as the context is simple: the illegal ‘regime change’ was sponsored, paid for and instigated by the US / CIA / NATO / EU – and prepared during more than ten years at a cost of at least 5 billion dollars – as Madame Nuland boasted on several occasions. 

This US / EU organized coup is now turning Ukraine, a once prosperous country, the breadbasket of the Soviet Union and the cradle of Russia into chaos, to become easy prey for the usual western money sharks, the IMF, European Commission (EC) and the European Central Bank (ECB). Behind them are the FED and Wall Street, to make sure they do as told. No mercy. For starters a US$ 17.5 billion IMF loan with the usual killer strings attached, à la Greece – large-scale privatization of the country’s social safety net, i.e. cutting salaries pensions (in half), food and fuel subsidies, increasing taxes – is rapidly becoming a nightmare for the average citizen and especially the poor. 

In addition, a US / NATO sledgehammer style killing machine is launched against the ‘pro-Russian opposition’  movement, now also called the Neo-Rossiia Defense Force (NDF). 

So – why is Mr. Putin not speaking up – acting up – saving fellow Russian lives?

Why does he seemingly accept the sham election that brought the corrupt and corrupted multi-billionaire, chocolate magnate, Petr Poroshenko to power? – The straw in the wind, that bends to where the money flows? 

There is a higher agenda at stake. 

Ukraine is a mere square on the chessboard of a large-scale and long-term geopolitical game; one that is about to cause a slow but steady tectonic power shift.

The symbiotic alliance between the two giants – Russia and China, the world’s largest economy, has been under preparation for the last couple of decades. It came to a sudden head thanks to Washington’s bullying arrogance, thrashing around with empty threats, worthless sanctions, anti-Russia and Putin demonizing lies and propaganda. 

The historic signing on 21 May 2014 of the US$ 400 billion equivalent gas deal between Mr. Vladimir Putin and China’s President Xi Jinping had an important symbolic significance. It is a complement to the US$ 270 billion equivalent oil deal, signed in June 2013 between Russia’s Rosneft and China. The treaties are not denominated in dollars but in the two countries’ local currencies.  In a larger context, the – $ 400 billion over 30 years, about $ 13 billion per year – is nothing extraordinary. Russia’s annual trade in hydrocarbons alone is estimated at close to one trillion dollars. 

However, the deal signals more than gas. It signals an alliance, a trusting and lasting partnership, beyond the Putin-Jinping generation. In parallel with the gas deal is the solidification of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), a Eurasian political, economic and military union founded in 1996 as the Shanghai Five – China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, expanded in 2001 under the leadership of China to also include Uzbekistan. 

To further solidify the Oriental pact is the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). Created in 1992, it comprised Russia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. In 2012 Uzbekistan withdrew under pressure from the West, aiming to become associated with the EU. The current membership includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan, with a rotating Presidency. Iran is a possible candidate to join this alliance of otherwise all former Soviet Republics. 

In addition, and based on the idea of the European Union, on 29 May 2014, a day before the signing of the Russia-China gas deal, the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) treaty was signed. The initial members include Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Provided the treaty is approved by the parliament of each government, the union will enter into effect on 1 January 2015 under the umbrella of the Eurasian Commission (modelled after the European Commission). It comprises 170 million people with an expected economic output of 2.7 trillion dollars equivalent. Further candidates to join the organization are Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. 

And then – there is the New Silk Road – recently announced by President Xi Jinping in Duisburg, Germany, inviting Germany to become the western-most link of the road connecting Russia, several of the former Soviet Republics and China.

Interested in joining this new alliance are also Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, all of which were present last week in the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, the Russian counterpart to Davos, when then New Silk Road was one of the priority topics. 

The new Silk Road is poised to become a huge magnet for trade, attracting in the West most if not all of the current EU members – whose currently largest trading partner is Germany – and in the East it may reach as far north as Mongolia and as far east as Malaysia. 

These alliances and partnerships for trade, security and cooperation are unions of mutual trust. Europe would do well to take a good look at what TRUST means.

They would perhaps discover that NATO is but a neo-colonization of Europe, with the purpose of keeping Europe in the Anglo-Zionist sphere as a buffer zone, so to speak, between East and West, preventing them from ‘switching over’ to the rapidly growing Eurasia Economic Union which already now looks more attractive and promising for the future than the economically down-trodden EU in alliance with the US. Not to mention the attraction of the new Silk Road. 

Is it so hard to notice that the Washington – NATO gang are just a bunch of lies and broken promises? – Proven throughout the Cold War which was based on false anti-Soviet propaganda in order to bolster the US military industrial complex, already then the lifeline of the American economy and the basis for its wasteful consumer society.  Lies exacerbated by the broken promise in 1990 by James Baker, then US Secretary of State, to Soviet President Gorbachev that NATO would not expand eastwards? – A promise totally ignored when in 1999 NATO entered Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland, and in 2004 followed Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. 

Besides, who could trust a nation with destabilizing counter-insurgency units deployed in 134 countries? – Last count, according to Joachim Hagopian, former West Point army officer - 

The just congealed eastern-oriental union – SCO, CSTO, EEU and the New Silk Road – signify a geopolitical sea-change hard to swallow for Washington and its minion allies. They won’t let go easily. Their world vision, though short-sighted, is on global hegemony, control of the world’s resources, people and economies. 

Now – what if Mr. Putin would just for a moment sidestep from its long-term objective of peace and cooperation – and would intervene in Ukraine to safe lives? – Would he risk US-NATO retaliation, with Europe the cannon-fodder in between? 

What are the Kremlin’s options, other than a direct involvement? – (i) an indirect engagement by arming Novorossiia to the teeth, pretty much as the US / NATO is doing with Kiev, or (ii) ride it out until the economic collapse of the dollar-linked Western world pulls with it the US / NATO military might – which might comprise significant collateral damage, including a mounting death toll in Ukraine, or (iii) a combination of both – arming NDF and inducing the economic collapse of the West, by the introduction of a new monetary / economic system, currently being prepared by the BRICS. This might at once reduce casualties in the Ukraine, as well as eliminating the chance of a new Cold War – CW II. 

Why? – Because for a CW II to flourish, the rest of the world needs to have confidence in the dollar, since the US printing machines would run amok churning out worthless greenbacks, flooding the ‘market’ as debt, expected to be absorbed by central banks as reserves. But this trust is gone, by most of the world. And those who still hope to get some ‘crumbs’ from the emperor loot for sticking to him until the very end, become fewer and farther in between. – Europe certainly is no longer solidly behind the White House with Obama’s bully tactics. 

There is the risk that in last desperation Washington would trigger an all destructive nuclear war. This is doubtful, though, since the banking and corporate elite of the Anglo-Zionist Empire, those who pull the strings on Obama’s actions, are too self-centered to risk auto-destruction. 

In the end, and seen with a bird’s eye Big-Picture vision, Ukraine may become the mere square on the chessboard where the arrogant and greedy Queen was lost to a humble but wise peon.

In Vienna when HITLER (the STINK) tried to get into art school, the rejection was repetitive no matter how many times he tried to get taught by the greats.

KLIMT refused to teach such an amateur as the STINK.

BUSH 'JR' is now doing painting as though he was in history as some infamous STINK and indeed he was and is certainly another the STINK.

I actually hate writing.  I hate to write.  It may as well be the worst possible experience for me and the power of writing art is an all powerful power.

I am supposed to be co-creating visual art, as visual artists are supposed to do.

But, no, I decide that I must know:  WHAT IS MONEY?

We, the great Donald Wilson and I, our two (2) sons' go on a 'junket' after a fashion, a sojourn to learn what is money, 1980s.  Called THE GREATER CIRCLE.

What a trip.

Learning about MEDICINE, JURISPRUDENCE, PHILOSOPHY/IES, yes that has been a very long road in understanding how to rear-view mirror our world 'life'. 

The something or another faction set-up the faction of JURISPRUDENCE which has attracted a certain faction of the species' Homo Sapiens' into a cult, after a fashion.  Certain HUMANS were lulled into a stupor of thinking that there are those that can think with the same brain as a GOD and then there are lots of little specks of this and that to be managed by the GOD at the very top which can be of course more than one in the modern time.


Labels get placed into orders.  Then like birds in cages in a barnyard the pecking begins.  Trouble is, we're human and not supposedly lower animals' with small pea brains, that peck orders and to death with the weaker!

How to know the stronger and the weaker in the human species.

We've had FIVE (5) PRESIDENTS under the brain thinking unimaginative mind of Brzezinski and we could have chosen to do a much different IDEA.

World War I.  GOYA was hired by the Spanish GOV to paint that War and he did, indeed, paint the horror of WAR.  Now, the CIA vaccinations are proven to produce the worst possible INFECTIONS!  World War I, produced the/a PLAGUE, which was A MEDICINE ? used to this very day to do what killing masses of human beings' is designed to do.

WEST was rising and in a great and bigger than all before civilizations.

Then, along came the Brzezinski Et Al, clans that were and are obviously criminally insane or we would be NOT killing all the geniuses that are not the WALL STREET recipients of CRIMINAL FRAUD "MONEY".

To sell DIGITAL ALGORITHMS/DERIVATIVES and expect the humans of earth to all die for the privilege of having the worst of our species in charge?

U.S. CONSTITUTION AMENDMENT THIRTEEN, Where is JURISPRUDENCE in the debt slavery obviously taught in the LAW SCHOOL TRIBAL .... Perhaps the TIME has arrived for VISUAL ART to do the job of SEEING through all the lies, and other FRAUD called "Justice" in the United States of America.

Gustav Klimt: The Vienna secession years


Gustav Klimt grew up in Austria where the Association of Austrian Artists was the de-facto organisation for all artists. The Association, housed in the Vienna Künstlerhaus, was a rather conservative body, with archaic artistic views, and an orientation towards Historicism. (See: Gustav Klimt's 150th birth anniversary marked by Google doodle)

The new breed of artists, including Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser, Josef Hoffmann, Joseph Maria Olbrich, Max Kurzweil, and others, objected to the prevailing conservatism of the Vienna Künstlerhaus. Ultimately, these artists resigned from the incumbent, and formed The Vienna Secession on 3 April 1897.

It is worth noting that although Otto Wagner is widely recognised as an important member of the Vienna Secession, he was not a founding member.

Gustav Klimt was chosen as the first president of The Vienna Secession (Wiener Sezession), also known as the Union of Austrian Artists (Vereinigung Bildender Künstler Österreichs). The new organisation's aim was to provide exhibitions for unconventional young artists, and to bring the best foreign artists' works to Vienna.

The Vienna Secession also published a magazine called Ver Sacrum ("Sacred Spring") to showcase the members' work.

In the early 1900s, Gustav Klimt was involved in perhaps the biggest controversies of his career. He had been commissioned to create three paintings for the ceiling of the Great Hall in the University of Vienna. When finished, his three paintings, Philosophy, Medicine and Jurisprudence were criticised for their radical themes and material, which many termed "pornographic" at the time.

gustav_klimt_telescope.jpgThe criticism came from all quarters -- political, aesthetic, and religious. As a result, the three paintings were not displayed on the ceiling of the Great Hall. Upset at the furore caused by his work, that he saw as nothing but his artistic expression, Gustav Klimt vowed never to accept a public commission again.

Unfortunately, the three paintings were destroyed by retreating SS forces in May 1945.

Another controversial Gustav Klimt work from the time was Nuda Verita, which depicted a starkly naked red-headed woman holding the mirror of truth. Above the woman, was Schiller quotation - "If you cannot please everyone with your deeds and your art, please a few. To please many is bad."

In 1902, Gustav Klimt painted a tribute to the legendary composer Beethoven, though it did not go on public display until 1986. The Beethoven Frieze is now on permanent display at the Vienna Secession Building.

Klmit went on annual vacations with his partner Emilie Louise Flöge and her family on the shores of Attersee, a lake in the Salzkammergut area of Austria, and painted many of his landscapes there. Even on his vacation, Gustav Klimt brought his unique approach with him. He would often use opera glasses, telescope, and even telephoto camera lenses to look at landscapes while painting, which helped him efficiently flatten deep space to a single plane. 

Gustav Klimt  (1862 - 1918)

Gustav Klimt was born on July 14, 1862 in Baumgarten, near Vienna. He was the second of seven children born to a meticulous engraver and carver. Klimt's family was very poor and had to move frequently to ever cheaper living quarters. In 1873, Austria experienced an economic crisis and Klimt's father was unemployed for some time.

Klimt's talent was recognized at an early age. He entered the School of Arts and Trades of Vienna at the age of fourteen. Klimt, along with his brother Ernst and Franz Matsch, were so talented that their professors allowed them to work on their own decoration projects. At the time, Klimt's style was hyperrealistic, inspired by the work of Hans Makart, one of the most famous painters of the day.

In 1892, Klimt and Matsch were commissioned by the Ministry of Culture and Education to decorate the Great Hall of the University. Matsch was to paint Theology. Klimt was to paint the other three, Philosophy, Jurisprudence and Medicine. The critics and general public were offended by his works. The Austrian Congress conducted a poll over his paintings and Klimt was incriminated for "pornography and excessive perversion."

The scandal over these paintings caused Klimt to reflect that public commissions were not compatible with his work.

From 1894 until 1897, Klimt was a member of the Cooperative Society of Artists, a conservative organization. Membership was essential to every artist hoping to make a living. By 1897, Klimt and other members thought that this society had exerted a negative influence on Austrian art and so they formed their own group, named the Association of Austrian Visual Artists, widely known as the Secession.

The Secession had three main aims: to provide young artists the opportunity to exhibit their work, to bring to Vienna the best foreign artists, and to publish its own magazine, Ver Sacrum.

Die Tanzerin
by Gustav Klimt
In one of the notable paintings that announced a change in Klimt's career, Nuda Veritas, 1899, includes a quotation from the dramatist Schiller: "If you cannot please everyone with your art, please a few. To please many is bad." Gustav Klimt had previously worked hard to please his public. He now recognized no standards but his own.

By 1907, Klimt began to doubt. The Secession's ideal, the harmony of the arts and the redemption of the world through art had proven to be an unachievable utopia. He decided to abandon The Secession.

Klimt began exploring the theme of sexuality in art. He painted women and their maddening eroticism. His work was celebrated and he became a popular portraitist of women. However, the open eroticism of his work clashed with the Victorian repression of the day. Klimt intriguingly painted women nude before painting in their clothing.

Klimt also painted landscapes based on the work of the Impressionists. As usual, though, he was interested in his own approach. Rather than dwell on the play of light and shadows over time, Klimt built enameled mosaics by mixing naturalism and modernism. Strangely, Klimt did not draw sketches or studies for his landscapes, even though he was a studio painter and accustomed to doing this for his portraits and allegories.

Gustav Klimt never married nor is there any evidence that he had a long-term relationship with any woman. However, many of the models who posed for Klimt were at one time or another his lover. Visitors to Klimt's studio were often surprised to find two or three women lounging around in a state of undress. Klimt's sensual works depicting naked and often aroused women provide a clear insight into his sexuality and attitude toward women.

Klimt died of pneumonia a few months before the outbreak of World War I.

"Whoever wants to know something about me—as an artist, the only notable thing—ought to look carefully at my pictures and try and see in them what I am and what I want to do."
- Gustav Klimt
"All art is erotic."
- Gustav Klimt

"Gustav Klimt first made himself known by the decorations he executed (with his brother and their art school companion F. Matsch), for numerous theatres and above all (on his own this time) for the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, where he completed, in a coolly photographic style, the work begun by Makart. At the age of thirty he moved into his own studio and turned to easel painting. At thirty-five he was one of the founders of the Vienna Secession; he withdrew eight years later, dismayed by the increasingly strong trend towards naturalism.

"The coruscating sensuality of Klimt's work might seem in perfect accord with a society which recognized itself in those frivolous apotheoses of happiness and well-being, the operettas of Johann Strauss and Franz Léhar. Nothing could be further from the truth. Far from being acknowledged as the representative artist of his age, Klimt was the target of violent criticism; his work was sometimes displayed behind a screen to avoid corrupting the sensibilities of the young. His work is deceptive. Today we see in it the Byzantine luxuriance of form, the vivid juxtaposition of colors derived from the Austrian rococo - aspects so markedly different from the clinical abruptness of Egon Schiele. But we see it with expectations generated by epochs of which his own age was ignorant.

"For the sumptuous surface of Klimt's work is by no means carefree. Its decorative tracery expresses a constant tension between ecstasy and terror, life and death. Even the portraits, with their timeless aspect, may be perceived as defying fate. Sleep, Hope (a pregnant woman surrounded by baleful faces) and Death are subjects no less characteristic than the Kiss. Yet life's seductions are still more potent in the vicinity of death, and Klimt's works, although they do not explicitly speak of impending doom, constitute a sort of testament in which the desires and anxieties of an age, its aspiration to happiness and to eternity, receive definitive expression. For the striking two-dimensionality with which Klimt surrounds his figures evokes the gold ground of Byzantine art, a ground that, in negating space, may be regarded as negating time - and thus creating a figure of eternity. 

Yet in Klimt's painting, it is not the austere foursquare figures of Byzantine art that confront us, but ecstatically intertwined bodies whose flesh seems the more real for their iconical setting of gold."
