Croatia has become the latest European nation to propel a confirmed Atlanticist and former resident of the United States into high political office. Conservative politician and former NATO assistant secretary general for public diplomacy Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic defeated incumbent center-left president Ivo Josipovic by a traditional George Soros-crafted razor-thin vote. In the case of Croatia’s second-round, the vote was 50.54 percent for Grabar-Kitarovic to 49.46 percent for Josipovic. The razor-thin majorities for candidates groomed by Soros’s Eastern and Central European contrivances are normally very close. While giving the public the perception that their vote counted, election engineering allows for only a few votes to tip the balance to the candidate favored by Washington.
Grabar-Kitarovic’s majority was enabled by receiving the required 21,000-vote majority from Croatians living abroad. Grabar-Kitarovic lived as a graduate student in Washington, DC and Boston and soon became Croatian ambassador in Washington and the chief propaganda assistant to NATO’s neoconservative Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Danish prime minister.
As an international exchange student, Grabar-Kitarovic graduated in 1986 from Los Alamos High School in New Mexico, the home to the Los Alamos National Laboratories, where U.S. intelligence and military agencies develop the latest nuclear weaponry and other warfare technology. Grabar-Kitarovic’s American host was a physicist who was reportedly employed at the Los Alamos nuclear facility. In 1986, Los Alamos National Laboratory was involved heavily in research and development for President Ronald Reagan’s pet project known as the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) or «Star Wars». It is likely that Grabar-Kitarovic became enamored of her host’s work for the U.S. defense and intelligence community to place a «shield» against nuclear missiles in space. Star Wars, however, turned out to be a complete failure and a huge waste of the American taxpayers’ money.
Grabar-Kitarovic’s political science master’s thesis at the University of Zagreb in Croatia was titled «American-Soviet Relations during the Reagan Administration and the End of the Cold War», which is very reminiscent of the Cold War academic pursuits of former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Rice’s PhD dissertation dealt with the Czechoslovak Army and the Communist Party. Her book, which was based on her dissertation, was titled, «The Soviet Union and the Czechoslovak Army, 1948-1983: Uncertain Allegiance». During her PhD studies at the University of Denver, Rice was taken under the wing of Dr. Josef Korbel, the father of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, whose god-daughter, Susan Rice is Barack Obama’s national security adviser. Korbel, Albright, the two Rices, and Grabar-Kitarovic represent a post-World War II U.S. intelligence operation to groom the next generation of Cold Warriors and seed U.S. citizens and residents of Eastern and Central European descent into the top echelons of government from Estonia to the Republic of Georgia.
Croatia, along with Albania, were the last two countries to join NATO. Croatia joined the Western military bloc in 2009.
Grabar-Kitarovic is a member of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), the neo-fascist oriented party of the late Croatian president Franjo Tudjman. She served as foreign minister of Croatia from 2005 to 2008 and was instrumental in pushing for Croatia’s joining the European Union in both that position as European Integration Minister from 2003 to 2005. Croatia joined the EU in 2013. EU membership brought Croatia the fourth-highest unemployment rate in Europe and a 50 percent jobless rate of Croatians under the age of 25. These statistics, which should have hurt the pro-EU Grabar-Kitarovic’s razor-thin victory in the presidential election even more suspicious and dubious.
Grabar-Kitarovic was a resident Fulbright scholar at George Washington University in Washington, DC where she specialized in international relations. Fulbright scholarship programs are used by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency to recruit foreign students with future political potential into the ranks of the intelligence agency’s vast network of assets and agents.
Eastern and Central European governments teem with such American agents of influence and intelligence assets.
Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves grew up in New Jersey and was employed as the head of the Estonia Desk by the CIA-linked Radio Free Europe. Two-term Lithuanian Presidernt Valdis Adamkus was a U.S. citizen and once served as an intelligence agent for the Fifth U.S. Army’s reserve intelligence corps. The Fifth U.S. Army is now known as the U.S. Northern Command and is responsible for ensuring, if the need arises, martial law in the United States and Canada.
Ukraine’s new Finance Minister is Natalie Jaresko, a U.S. citizen and former employee of the U.S. State Department. Kateryna Yushchenko, Ukraine’s former First Lady, also worked for the U.S. State Department in addition to having served in the Reagan White House. Valdis Dombrovskis, the former Latvian Prime Minister and current European Commissioner for the Euro and Social Dialogue, was a PhD student at the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland in College Park. Just down the highway from the National Security Agency (NSA), the Clark engineering school is involved in intensive research and development for NSA’s next-generation of surveillance systems. The connections between the campus, College Park, and NSA are so close that a sitting Information Assurance (IA) Director at the NSA, Michael Jacobs, also served as the Mayor of College Park.
The President of Albania, Bujar Nishani, studied for his Master’s of Arts degree in San Antonio, Texas. San Antonio is the home of the NSA’s Texas unit, known as the «NSA/CSS Texas Cryptologic Center (TCC)». NSA’s trains linguists at the Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. Nishani’s presence in San Antonio is noteworthy since Albanian, as well as Serbo-Croatian and Russian, are taught by NSA at its Texas linguist training center.
Mikheil Saakashvili, the former president of Georgia and current adviser to the putschist regime in Kiev, received his law degree from Columbia University and was the recipient of a U.S. State Department graduate fellowship. He subsequently worked for the New York law firm of Patterson, Belknap, Webb and Tyler, which has counted a number of right-wing neoconservatives among its partners, including former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey and New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Saakashvili is also a darling of the Israel Lobby, which showed its appreciation by awarding him an honorary doctorate from the University of Haifa in Israel.
Polish parliamentary president Radoslaw Sikorski, who also served as Foreign and Defense Minister, is a former employee of neoconservative media tycoon Rupert Murdoch. Sikorski is married to Ann Applebaum, an unapologetic supporter of the Bush-Cheney administration’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and an ardent neoconservative in her own right. Sikorski, like other American agents of influence, received a fellowship in Washington, DC. Sikorski’s resident fellowship was at the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute, an infamous supporter of a new Cold War against Russia.
Grabar-Kitarovic is just the latest American agent-of-influence to lead a NATO country in Eastern/Central Europe. Placing American puppets in governance of supposedly-independent nations is reminiscent of Nazi Germany’s and Fascist Italy’s appointment of puppet leaders and administrators in some of the same nations where U.S. lackeys now rule. Today, hardly a soul recalls the names of these puppet entities: the Lokot Autonomy, the Principality of the Pindus, and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. Grabar-Kitarovic is the ideological heir of the puppet Nazi State of Croatia, which was led by the fascist Ustashe movement, from which Grabar-Kitarovic’s HDZ party receives so much of its inspiration.
