MUST WATCH VIDEO: 33 years of history that led up to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that you won’t see taught in U.S. schools nor hear anywhere in the Western mockingbird media

Finland became the 31st member of NATO on Tuesday — a once-unthinkable step that significantly changes the geo-political landscape in Europe, making it far more volatile and susceptible to war.

Why do I say this? Look at a map. Finland’s membership more than doubles NATO’s borders with Russia and, as Axios reports, formally ends Helsinki’s decades of official neutrality.

This represents yet another in-your-face provocation to Russian President Vladimir Putin who, in launching the Russian invasion of Ukraine, vowed to block the alliance’s eastward expansion. Now he has NATO sitting on his massive border with Finland. It will be interesting to see if Finland allows U.S. troops to be deployed on its soil, which would be the ultimate provocation.

Finland represents NATO’s ninth major expansion since its founding in 1949, with the biggest additions coming in the mid-1990s under Bill Clinton, in the early 2000s under George W. Bush and now with the additions of Finland and Sweden under Joe Biden.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg stated the following while officially welcoming Finland into the alliance: “President Putin wanted to slam NATO’s door shut. Today we showed the world that he failed, that aggression and intimidation do not work. Instead of less NATO, he has achieved the opposite: more NATO. And our door remains firmly open.”

We’ll see how this idea of an ever-expanding NATO encircling Russia works out for the U.S. and its allies. Something tells me it could end in a Third World War that brings catastrophic losses of life to the peoples of Russia, Europe and U.S.

Here are the facts:

Mikhail Gorbachev unilaterally disbanded the Warsaw Pact military alliance in 1990. When he did that, Gorbachev was given repeated assurances by the U.S. and Germany that NATO would not fill the geo-political power vacuum with U.S. bases and military alliances in the former Soviet republics.

Jeffrey Sachs, an economist who served as an advisor to Gorbachev during that time, has recently issued a statement saying the U.S. lied to Gorbachev’s face.

The military-industrial complex and its neoconservative backers in Washington immediately began plotting the eastward advancement of NATO, Sachs says in a new video commentary that explains a fascinating and little-understood period in history. And in each of these new NATO member states, eventually came the deployment of American military personnel and/or advanced missile systems.

I had never heard this before, about these broken U.S. promises made to Gorbachev, and I am a college graduate who studied history with a major in political science. So I didn’t want to take Sachs’ word for it. I researched it myself and found that Sachs is correct. You can read about this history, conveniently withheld from American students in high schools and universities, in an 2017 article by Larry Kummer citing original documents in the National Security Archive at George Washington University.

Kummer writes:

Take a listen to Sachs’ recounting of this completely ignored history that led up to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. It will blow your mind. I had to watch it twice to absorb it all.

Sachs ticks off the historical facts of the U.S. introducing more and more weaponry, missile systems, etc. into Eastern Europe. Putin has been warning since 2008 this would lead to confrontation.

So which country is the real aggressor? History reveals the answer.

It’s interesting Sachs cited Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Global Chessboard, to make his case for people to re-evaluate the situation in Ukraine. By quoting Brzezinski, he is using one of the globalists’ own revered sources to argue that Russia has not been treated fairly by the West since the Berlin Wall came down in 1990. Brzezinski predicted in 1997 that Ukraine, if it ever were to seriously be considered for NATO membership, would become an international flashpoint, potentially bringing massive death and casualties.

  1. One more thought for Rachel Nichols. I have read many of the comments made by different people, of what you should do to be happier/more satisfied with your life. You have a decision to make: listen to these people or look into yourself and accept that you need to accept things (the world and all its people) as they are. People gave you good advice. Take what you like and leave the rest.
    I don’t mean to be leaving Jesus out of this equation, but, there too it is up to YOU.


  2. This was very good. I love his no nonsense appeal to peace. Calling them out for the little bully boys they are acting like. I think all of us can say no matter what background we are or even our world view, would be open to nuclear war. Utter madness.

    Blessed are the peacemakers


    1. Or, at the very least, the collapse of the U.S. economy.

      I just checked out your link and it only took a few minutes before the nausea set in.

      Typical neo-Nazi garbage.

      The Anti-Defamation League has this to say about Jeff Rense:

      “Jeff Rense is an Ashland, Oregon-based Internet and satellite radio host who maintains a virulently anti-Semitic Web site,”

      You guys don’t ever quit, do you?

      1. I do not care for the Leftist ADL. But that recording sounded very anti-Jew.
        There is something odd about the Ukraine. The John Birch Society helps explain some of what’s happening and why Mr. Global wants more Jew hatred and scapegoating.
        The ignorant seem to think that all Jews are globalists. And vice versa. It’s an ideology. Even a religion. Not any particular ethnic group.
        According to Jeff Rense’s own account, the Ukraine was multi ethnic. Kind of like the USA. That would have made it a great place for globalists to set up headquarters in. Like Switzerland–and the USA. Unfortunately, Rense goes on to claim it’s all the fault of the “Jews.” He gets around this by saying, “Well they aren’t real mid eastern Jews.” If they practice Satanism they are not religious Jews either. And it isn’t our ancestry or DNA that saves us according to the Bible.
        A lot of Jews are fighting the globalists. Dr. Peter Breggin, Naomi Wolf.
        It angers me how many “Christians” twist Scriptures out of context and throw in Darwinism. Saying their superior DNA and ancestors makes them Christians and will get them into Heaven. They are really no different than the Pharisees whom Jesus condemned as “children of the devil.” They think their Christian pedigree and ethnicity will save them, they lie, they twist Scriptures, and they have actually called for murdering innocent people on Gab. I’m thinking about leaving the site because of all the rabid skinheads using it.

        You nailed it. It’s all pride, the need to feel “better than others.” Somehow these “Christians” are overlooking that little idol in their hearts as well as all the others in there like selfishness, envy, strife, murder, etc., plus they’re ignoring the fact that the majority of the church is now wallowing in apostasy. Nothing to be proud about.

        I’ve seen Naomi Wolf many times on Fox and Newsweek over the last several years and like her a lot. Will check out Dr. Peter Breggin – thanks!

Although, i do realize there continues to be because of lack of proper education and MORALS, Squed, negatively thought.

        And I have some bad news for you. God has been pretty upfront throughout the Bible about His attitude toward those who would seek to harm His chosen people, starting with His promise to Abraham and his descendants in Genesis 12:3

        “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.”

        You are on the wrong side of the Lord of Hosts.

  3. I agreed with much of what Mr. Sachs said, except for what follows:
    Good speech, Jeffrey Sachs, but it seems I remember you being a part of the first video I saw of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and believe me THOSE people are in favor of peace alright, but peace on their terms.
    Klause Schwab, CEO of WEF has even written a book in which he refers to the world’s people in a very lunatic way: “You will own nothing and you will be happy.”
    You see, Schwab’s ultimate plan is his idea of a UTOPIA-like place but in truth a new world order, a one-world government, ETC., straight out of the pages of the great book, 1984, by George Orwell.
    Russia is mostly alone against Schwab and his WEF, but when TSHTF, it will definitely require a strong military alliance to stop it.

      How about straight out of the great book, Revelation, by Jesus Christ?

      And not a “strong military alliance” but a strong leader “to stop it.”

      This is essentially a coup for the WEF to introduce their protégé, just before the Doomsday Clock strikes midnight and people are all crying out for a Mr. Fixit.

      I know that the road to the one-world government, currency, and religion could still have some twists and turns in it, but this whole thing looks like a setup to me.

      If anyone has not made a decision to ask Christ into your heart as your Savior, I wouldn’t put it off. It will be much, much harder to do that during the Tribulation.

      1. Schwab has talked about a single man to lead the world. Could that possibly be Trump? He drives people crazy one of two ways it seems. They either froth and scream stuff detached from reality off their TV sets or worship the man and fly into a fury at anyone who points out his failings. “How dare you insult our beloved Christlike Trump? I will pray that God forgives you since you’re obviously possessed by Satan.” Making him equal to God Himself! I see these insane comments all over Gab and Lifesitenews.
        The stuff he’s charged with is stupid. It’s nothing but misdemeanors blown out of proportion. I predict he’ll only gain by it. Point out that he’s a womanizer like Bill Clinton, responsible for the emergency powers act (which he never ended,) got many conservatives to take the clot shot, and appears to be on good terms with the Davos crowd. Then it’s “Reeeee!” The MAGA cult is as crazy as the TDS crowd. If the TV set tells the latter that Trump is great, they’ll forget they ever hated him since that is how their TV brains work.
        He’ll get people into his Freedom Cities and offer them a new digital currency–looking compassionate since they’ll have lost everything, and many will have died by then.


      2. Rachel – “Schwab has talked about a single man to lead the world. Could that possibly be Trump?”

        Others have speculated, over the past, that it could be Bush Sr., Kissinger, Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, Zelensky, Macron, or others who have been affiliated with the WEF in some capacity.

        Personally, I believe the candidate would have to meet all the criteria specified in the Bible regarding their geographical place of origin, personality characteristics, and actions. I won’t go into any details regarding those, other than to say that, for me, that rules Trump out based upon his country of birth.

        I don’t think he will be our next president, because the Democrats are doing everything possible to obstruct him from obtaining that position. Not only that, I’ve read about how they are now taking action to manipulate the election process itself, just like they did in 2020.

        So I don’t believe we will have him OR any Republican in the Oval Office, ever.

        As a matter of fact, 2024 may well be the last elections of this Republic, or rather, what used to be a Republic.

        Hard to tell what passages predict what event. There are four ways to interpret Revelation too. Preterist, historicist, idealist/symbolist, futurist. Or a combination of the above.

      6. Rachel – “Nothing will ever be right again. Like a painful, terminal disease.”

        Rachel, Even in the midst of all this darkness around us, we can have hope knowing that everything God says in His word about the second coming of Jesus will be fulfilled just as everything He said about His first coming was – even down to the details.

        Since we’re celebrating His sacrifice and resurrection this weekend, I thought it would be encouraging to include some of the promises kept about His first time here, because they are evidence of His faithfulness to us. I know there are many who’ve heard all these, but there might be others who haven’t.

        The Messiah would be:

        Seed of the woman/born of a virgin – Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14
        Of the tribe of Judah – Genesis 49:10
        Root of Jesse, Branch of David – Isaiah 11:10; Jeremiah 23:5
        Son of God – Psalm 2:7
        A prophet like Moses – Deuteronomy 18:15
        A priest after the order of Melchizedek – Psalm 110:4
        Born in Bethlehem – Micah 5:2
        Preceded by a messenger – Isaiah 40:3; Malachi 3:1
        Sent to heal the brokenhearted and those suffering from disease – Isaiah 53:4-5
        An atonement for our sins: Isaiah 53:5-6
        Rejected – Isaiah 53:3
        Betrayed – Psalm 41:9; Zechariah 11:12-13
        Spat upon, struck, and flogged – Isaiah 50:6; Isaiah 53:5
        Silent before accusers – Isaiah 53:7
        Tried and condemned Isaiah 53:8
        Crucified – Psalm 22:14-17
        Given vinegar and gall and have His garments divided – Psalm 69:21; Psalm 22:18
        Raised from death! – Psalm 16:10

  4. When it comes to the world stage of politics, I am 100% aware of how little I know. It is impossible to truly know what is going on all over the world all of the time, let alone in one part of it and one issue. There is so much intrigue and secrecy and such that even the best spies don’t know plenty. I can’t even begin to think that I can know anything about it truly and with certainty. I watch the events and know certain things and even agendas because I put the puzzle pieces together. When you know the end game, that they want a NWO, you can pretty much see why they are opening the borders here and in Europe and coming with propaganda about this, as just one example. But I know we are in the end times, and end times events are going to happen. They are already happening in fact. We can’t stop the prophesies from being fulfilled, that would be foolish to think we could try and do that. They are apocalyptic and devastating. Because of this, many don’t want to face the reality that we are that generation. No, I have grandkids! It must be something else! The boogey man’s shadow will dissolve again, the beast hanging over the future will turn into a kitten again, and all the chess pieces of WW3 will go back into their box. But alas, no. The only encouraging thing I can say is this. And it’s not the pretrib rapture. But it is the fact that we are still not appointed to the wrath of God. Just like the 144,000, God is capable of protecting us until it is our time to leave this world. He will protect us if we are His, from all manner of apocalyptic events. What we will experience however is persecution and martyrdom. Nothing new there, it is the same calling Christians have had since day one of the church, in most parts of the world. It is the church of entitlement in the West that shrinks back from this calling, past, present, and future. If they don’t heed the wake up call now, they will be in for a rude awakening one soon day.

    1. It is impossible to read Scripture and not see suffering as not part of a Christians life. I have been asking Christians a simple question: what important life lesson have you really learned when life was going easy and there was not suffering or difficulty? I have yet to hear one reply of growth in easy times. The question is when we are in the midst of a crushing will it produce wine or whine?

    2. So, do absolutely nothing but give up and pray for death. I HATE THOSE FATALISTIC, DEMORALIZING, HOPELESS PROPHECIES. They are all about how Satan wins and destroys everything forever till Jesus destroys what little remains. Then some chapters of abstract musings about the moral victory of all the martyrs who died before everything was blasted out of existence forever.
      Nothing but evil, suffering, and eternal death lies ahead. Then utter destruction and an eternal void ever after.
      “End times” means the end of everything forever. Eternal darkness and death after all life is destroyed. It means Death will reign supreme.
      I hate living in the End Times. Why do anything? How we live makes no difference since evil is guaranteed a win. Righteousness makes no difference.
      The devil will win. Goodness, innocence and life will lose. The Bible says so. God wants evil to win and destroy the world forever. Unlike the Flood there will be no survivors or any kind of world after it ends. That’s what the nightmare prophecies of Revelation say.
      Our hope is eternal darkness and void forever after the real world is destroyed. Along with real life which will be snuffed out for eternity.


      1. I’m so sorry dear Rachel….
        What Bible are you reading? Please read chapter 22 of Revelation. And really, the entire canon of scripture has quite a different message. God calls humankind to Himself. From the very beginning and to the end He holds on to a remnant.
        I do hope that you will take hold of that hope…that is found in The Savior of all mankind…Jesus the Christ!

      2. Rachel: How we live makes all of the difference in where we spend eternity. This world is not our final home. It will either be with God in Heaven or with Satan and all of those who are God’s enemies in Hell. We all have a choice. If one is a Christian, he/she will experience suffering and accept it with grace and even joy because Christ told us we would be hated as He was hated. If one truly loves Christ and has done his/her best to follow what He told us we must do if we want to spend eternity in the presence of God, our loving creator, we have no fear of pain, of suffering or of death.


      3. What course of action to take though? You talk about living. How should we live while still on earth?
        BTW, my Christian life has been filled with loneliness, heartache, disappointment, and now physical pain. All because God, in His sovereignty, wanted it to be that way. The same God in charge of designing life in Heaven.


      4. Rachel: From your comments I understand that you have been living in quite a lot of pain. Not all Christians suffer as much as you seem to have and I’m telling you it is not easy for anyone to (even the saints had difficulty sometimes) suffer with joy. What I do when I’m in pain or lonely or think negatively is remind myself what Christ endured for me as God, innocent, and humble. I look upon Him hanging from the cross, beaten to a pulp, bleeding, not able to breathe and suffering the most cruel and painful death imaginable. But he died for me, for everyone and that kind of love pierces my heart. Then I am able to realize I can suffer with joy and ask God to give me the graces I need to do so. Pray, pray, pray Rachel. God loves you so much and He will never abandon you.


    3. What are churches supposed to do, Blandina? What are Christian individuals supposed to do? Does it make any difference?
      Absolutely not.
      Evil will win, regardless of how we live. Why are you talking about churches being ready if all is lost?
      Those horrible Bible prophecies say all is hopeless and evil will win in the end.
      They drive me mad. No comfort or encouragement. Nothing but depression, fear and hopelessness to be found in the last book of the Bible.


      1. Well it sounds like you’ve been taking the wrong pills of pessimism again. I never said there is no hope. All I ever say is to put your hope in the right source, and it’s not politics, it’s not a political process or political leader, it’s not success in the world, it’s not money or power or any other rescue life ring or vest that this world will throw at you. The only hope, and yes I mean only, is Jesus Christ.

        As for the churches, my gripe is that they are a bunch of entitled slackers who are clueless about living the Christian life. That is all we are called to do by the Lord, it’s not save the day, it’s not save the world, it’s not put on a heroes cape and save the country, but it is to live a holy Christian life. That is all we can do and that is all God asks of us. I’m tired of churches and people who warm the pews who only care about golf and going on camping trips and care nothing about discipleship according to the Bible and praying for things like the persecuted church that is in most of the world today. They are too entitled and spoiled to want to sour their little brains with such activities, it would spoil their appetites for all the things in their pampered lives. That is what I am complaining about there.

        As for Revelation, you need to keep reading it all the way to the end, you know, like chapters 19, 20, 21, and 22.

        But not chapter 23. Why not? I will leave it as a jest. Go and look at that chapter if you must. But it will only prove my point. This is in general and not for any specific person, it is that bad that it applies across the board. I could do the same thing with any book of the Bible with anyone in any church today and get the same result. Go ahead. Make my day!

      2. I struggle with fears based on neo platonism I was exposed to early in my church. They teach Heaven is completely spiritual. Nothing solid or “real” as we understand it. And we will go floating through eternity as disembodied spirits. Maybe like being in a sensory deprivation chamber. Forever.
        The things described could be the fleeting visions we will see in the void since we’ll no longer have eyes or sunlight to see with or by.
        What if the Sunday school teachers were right? This keeps me up at night.

      3. Rachel—Once again you’re overcome by fear and dread. Many times you offer such good insights on this blog and I would not want to see you fall prey to despair. I’m sorry that your early experiences in church had taught you despair instead of hope. That’s a heavy thing to carry all your life. There’s too much questionable preaching in our times that have more in common with fatalistic, Manichean paganism than with salvific and transformational Christianity.

        We have been living in the End Times since John the Baptist preached: ”Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.” The old gods that ruled this fallen world without mercy began to be cast out when Christ came among us. But in our era, these pagan gods /demons are returning with a vengeance and some of us may have to directly deal with that. Some already are. But the renewed reign of these old gods will be cut short. NO tyrannical regime has lasted forever in the history of the world. Neither will the Antichrist/Beast regime because evil, like a parasite, brings about the destruction of its host. And sin and death will be sent into hell by God, never to afflict us again.

        No, you are NOT going to lose this world. God will not annihilate the wonderful matter of life He created at the beginning and called “Good”, or the beings made in His image that He called “very good”. But this is a fallen world afflicted by sin, all creation groaning for salvation, waiting for the from sin and death. “that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.  We know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until the present time. Not only that, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies…” (Romans 8:21-23). You are not going to lose this world, or yourself, in some Olympian fit of nihilistic annihilation. The old world, currently subject to death, cannot inherit incorruption (despite all the attempt by sinful man to overcome it by his own efforts). To inherit incorruption—the freedom from sin and death– it’s the dross of sin and evil that will be burned away so that this world and ourselves can inherit incorruption. Picture an ore of gold or silver before a metal smith works with it. He throws it in the fire to burn away the dross. This process doesn’t destroy the gold or silver—instead the process reveals its beauty and glory. Its matter or body still exist, but transformed into something greater. That’s our destiny and the destiny of all creation—to be transformed (not to be annihilated).

        After Christ—the 2nd Adam– rose from the dead, he appeared to his disciples showing his wounds suffered by his body during the crucifixion. Why? It was to prove to them that the body he died in was the very same body that was resurrected to new Life. Not some other body, not a substitute—but the same body that had died. So we will not be some disembodied beings floating around in a sea of nothingness—like the Buddhists and Hindus teach. Our destiny is to be far higher, more conscious, more in direct interaction with our Creator than we are at present. The first Adam was supposed to be the keeper of the garden of Eden—Eden, a mountain temple (as described in Ezekiel)– and extend this garden into the rest of the untamed world, so Adam was to be a high priest over all Creation, but he failed. Christ, the 2nd Adam, came to fulfill the first Adam’s role, and so Jesus is our high priest today (as described in Hebrews). And what will we be or even now are? “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.: (Rev 1:6) We’re going to play a role in eternity as much or more than we play here in the present world.

        So please leave aside the despairing and annihilationist doctrines you were taught years ago and look with fresh eyes at the Bible, comparing the promises of Genesis with the fulfillment in Revelation, to find the reason for hope. I would suggest you read either of these books to get a much clearer picture of human mission and destiny than what you were taught. This one is by G.K. Beale (Protestant) or this one by Steven Smith (Catholic)

    this video author Sachs has got it totally wrong. The downfall of the USSR was totally scripted…a planned collapse inorder to put the west to sleep and get boatloads of cash from the US which Russia has used to modernize their nuclear warfighting capability. Sachs is the typical mainstream take on the Russia. I recommend reading JRNyquist to understand the scripted ‘downfall’ of the USSR.


    1. Arnold, I know that’s a common theory among Americans but there’s simply no evidence to support it. And even if it’s true, it didn’t work. As Sachs’ comments and the historic record bear out, the West did anything but go to sleep. The opposite occurred. They immediately recruited the former Soviet republics into their military alliance and placed missiles and troops in these nations bordering Russia. These are undeniable facts.

      1. Leo, America is being surrounded by communist countries, we are surrounded. The majority of our institutions have been weaponized and our academic circles, our intelligence orgs and our military are infiltrated here as well. Country after country is being taken over by marxism. Communism is alive and well. The globalists think they are in charge…but time will tell who is going to win. America is in big trouble Leo.

      2. The biggest threat to America has always been from traitors within. Foreign state actors would have zero chance of ever conquering this country were it not for the traitors in the Uniparty we have running our federal government.

      3. Sadly, just like the US national security state (NSS) took out democratically elected Allende in 1973, one of many assas sinations orchestrated by the 3 letter agencies, the head of many countries fears for their life if they go against the US NSS. How does a non-super power country fight the NSS?


  6. I’m being tortured so badly right now with my throat, esophagus and stomach burning. I can barely stand it. I am so ashamed of our US so called leadership. Most Americans aren’t even aware of this. We’ve been kept poor, hard working and miserable for decades. Only a few are happy with this system.

      1. About Heaven, Rachel, I don’t buy that floating around in “nothingness,” and you shouldn’t either, not that I have a great “believable idea, either.
        Back when The Twilight Zone was a weekly television show that I never missed, and one episode has always stayed with me. I will try to describe as well as my memory allows me: A man (60s-70s) is walking in his beloved forest (of course I don’t know if he considers the forest “beloved” but I think so.) Anyway he’s a bit bewildered, but I don’t think frightened.
        Eventually a young man (maybe 30s) meets him, they have a short discussion, ending with, “Don’t worry, your wife will soon be joining you.”
        And that is what I believe about Heaven.


  7. Spot on, Leo! Glad you’re saying this.

    Our foreign policy regarding Russia (and much of the rest of the globe) has been colossally rapacious, corrupt, violent, stupid and immoral. Worse—there’s no one in our government willing to stop and think about what damage our policies are doing just to ourselves, let alone to world peace. Our Ukrainian anti-Russian policy has cost the lives of almost 250,000 Ukrainian soldiers, about 20-30,000 Russians and an unknown number of civilians. We’ve allied ourselves with known Nazis in Ukraine. How can we escape Judgment??

    Ukraine is destroyed. All unnecessary. That’s why the other nations watching this drama and remembering our abuse of the 3rd world through the last 60 years are finally dumping the dollar and stepping away from us. They know we are finished. We are losing our allies and the neocon Biden administration remains absolutely clueless or worse, irresponsible and utterly uncaring.

    1. Totally agree. I watched two video by Curtis Bowers interviewing Alex Newman (Sept. 10, 11, 2022). They discuss how our country allowed the communists to take over China by not supporting a conservative there. Go to and scroll down to view. Very interesting but it proves that our government is wicked to the core.

      1. Parent’s generation of boomers, born mostly in the 1920’s (some faught in ww2) those who were informed said foreign entanglements, joining the UN would eventually bring this country down, meddling into affairs of other nations, starting wars for profit etc, incl. have been ongoing,. Now it’s not fixing our infrastructure instead throwing money away overseas and no win wars in last 78 years. NO politician or political party has or will fix anything since W. Wilson was in office.
