Blankfort opens noting this is 3rd anniversary of success of US orchestrated coup in Ukraine, when Yanukovich fled Kiev, then attacks NPR for pushing non-stop for confrontation with Russia as it did for war on Iraq.

He then goes on to rip Michael Moore, Bill Moyers and the liberal organizations and websites that are demanding, like them, a special commission to investigate alleged Russian meddling in US election: Common Cause, Common Dreams, AlterNet, Color of Change, Move On, quoting Moore's tweets and Moyers article in The Populist, reminding listeners that Moyers was a loyal LBJ press secretary during the bombing of Vietnam and has never apologized.

Blankfort asks how these liberals can believe US intelligence which has been telling nothing but lies to the public since WW 2, and asks why they did not call for a special commission to investigate the intelligence behind the war on Iraq and call for prosecution of those responsible.

Then, he PLAYS three clips. The first (4:10) is the secretly recorded phone conversation between Dep Sec of State Victoria Nuland and US ambassador to Ukraine, Geoff Pyatt, about who should be the next Ukraine prime minister, two weeks before coup succeeds.

The second (2:05) has John McCain and Lindsay Graham speaking to Ukranian soldiers last December, calling on them to go on offensive against Russia.

The third (2:46) is former congressman and presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich, speaking on Fox News against the warmongers pushing for a new Cold War.
