The Mysterious “Deep Force” Behind the “Coup” in Ukraine? First Look Money Guy Pierre Omidyar
I’m making popcorn here at Lizard Headquarters, because the libertarians at PandoDaily are taking shots at the libertarians at First Look, and we’re all winners for it: Pierre Omidyar Co-Funded Ukraine Revolution Groups With US Government, Documents Show.
“There’s quite a bit of evidence of coup-ness. Q is how many levels deep interference from both sides is.”
These are serious claims. So serious that I decided to investigate them. And what I found was shocking.
Wheeler is partly correct. Pando has confirmed that the American government - in the form of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) - played a major role in funding opposition groups prior to the revolution. Moreover, a large percentage of the rest of the funding to those same groups came from a US billionaire who has previously worked closely with US government agencies to further his own business interests. This was by no means a US-backed “coup,” but clear evidence shows that US investment was a force multiplier for many of the groups involved in overthrowing Yanukovych.
But that’s not the shocking part.
What’s shocking is the name of the billionaire who co-invested with the US government (or as Wheeler put it: the “dark force” acting on behalf of “Pax Americana”).
Step out of the shadows…. Wheeler’s boss, Pierre Omidyar.
BAM! That’s gotta sting. Can’t wait for the torrent of invective from the Mighty G.
