The impeachment circus began with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) because Nancy Pelosi didn’t trust Jerry Nadler. It began on the grounds of a false accusation about a phone call between the President of the United States and the President of Ukraine. Schiff, like all Democrats, is hell bent on “impeaching” the president since they cannot defeat him at the polls, had a “Gossip Girl” hearing bringing forward witnesses that literally witnessed nothing. The reason? Ukraine is about to blow wide open.
Schiff is a very curious character. His friends reveal a side of him that is what nightmares are made of and his finances are so “busy” you can’t find your way out of endless shell company rabbit holes. Though, when you begin diving into Schiff and links to Ukraine, a fundraising dinner for Schiff, hosted in Igor Pasternak’s home in 2013 stands out like a sore thumb.
Igor Pasternak was born in Kazakhstan, raised and educated in the USSR governed Ukraine. Though he claims to be born in Ukraine, he and different news agencies claim he is Russian born. His birthplace is disturbingly confusing and obscure. During his course of studies, he wanted to revamp the idea of airships to be relevant again. He founded Aeros in Ukraine and in 1994, he came to America, moving to California. He relentlessly pitched the idea that blimps were the future to transporting goods.
Here is how Pasternak was put on the map. An Air Force base was going to close, so he was able to rent a hanger on the base before it closed down to start making advertising blimps. Nothing is suspicious like the U.S. Air Force forgoing space on their still-active base for a Soviet-Ukrainian to make blimps.
Pasternak was pushing blimps for commercial use and paid the bills. Nevertheless, he had well established political connections that came out of nowhere and was a key go-to person for presidents and Congress in respect to U.S. relations with Ukraine. Unsurprisingly, he has a prominent role in the corrupt Military Industrial Complex, lining the pockets of many. (Where is Amy Klobuchar?)
Pasternak’s niche was marketed by the ability for his blimps to stay aloft for five days or more. Then, all of a sudden from commercial blimps, to blimps for air cargo/transport with a big $50 MIL GRANT (not loan). Overnight, BOOM, this Ukrainian blimp aficionado became a DEFENSE CONTRACTOR. He said so himself.
No surprise, there are military applications here. Instead of hurling bombs onto London, the thinking is that airships, which can quietly stay aloft in one place for long periods, would be great for surveillance. Before September 11, 2001, US firm Worldwide Aeros mostly made airships for advertising, says Russian-born CEO Igor Pasternak. “One day, we wake up and we become defense company.”
According to the available digitized Federal Election Commission records, after 2001, Pasternak started to ramp up funding and began donating to politicians. His donations were to a select few with a bit of money here and there. He began funding both Democrats and Republicans, exponentially increasing the amount of his donations.
The most interesting donation and campaign fundraising event was the one Pasternak held for Adam Schiff.
Incredibly, Schiff, part of the House Appropriations Committee back in 2013, facilitated the Pentagon awarding Pasternak’s company a $50 million grant to develop a prototype blimp for delivering cargo to military bases. Where is the prototype? Nowhere. He wasn’t required to produce one. Says so in his grant award. He got $50 MIL to think about it, talk about it, and dream about it.
Curiously, Pasternak is constantly referred to as “Russian Born” when in fact, he is Ukrainian (born in Kazakhstan) and worked for the Soviets before coming to the USA. Notably, Igor Pasternak was recognized with a “Certificate of Honor” from the Ukrainian Embassy, with their press release citing Pasternak’s “significant contributions to bilateral cooperation in March 2014.” Also stated in the press release:
“Since political protests broke out across Ukraine in late 2013, Pasternak has worked to personally inform and educate Members of Congress about the geostrategic importance of Ukraine to European and US security.”
In a previous article, (HERE) we had reported to you that around that time, Russia was making its move on the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea after the “Ukrainian Revolution.” President Obama was pretending to lay low in all of that, saying giving military aid to Ukraine would be a violation of international law, but instead he offered them $50 MIL earlier that year for “elections” and revamping their “judicial” matters, around the time Hunter Biden took up his board seat and Joe Biden made strong aggressive moves. Very contradictory don’t you think?
While Obama was against giving aid to Ukraine for defense, Schiff appeared to be pushing for arms to be given to Ukraine.
On Capitol Hill, meanwhile, powerful Democrats like House Armed Services Committee ranking member Adam Smith (D-Wash.), House Foreign Affairs Committee ranking member Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), and House Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) joined House Speaker John Boehner and an array of other Republicans in a letter to the White House pushing for arms for Ukraine.
Many may think Schiff was working against Obama when in fact he was complimenting his actions on the judicial and election side, allowing the need to become greater and with more precise recommendations for remedy. It’s all about optics.
The US announced it was stepping up non-lethal military assistance to Ukraine on Wednesday with a $75m (£50m) package that includes armoured Humvees and surveillance drones.”
According to the press, Obama “resisted” pressure from Congress and Secretary of State John Kerry (who also had a payday from Burisma). His “hot mic” comment with a Russian leader said otherwise.
Almost instantly, Ukrainian Igor Pasternak’s company, Aeros Corporation announced a cooperative partnership between Aeros and the government of Ukraine. In fact, surveillance is what Aeros would provide to the Ukrainian help in “strengthening their border protection”. Aeros is a company founded in Ukraine that’s now operating as a U.S. company. (Isn’t that what CrowdStrike did?)
In the press release below, Pasternak, like the founder of CrowdStrike, admitted that AEROS was founded in Ukraine and gave a shout out to the State legislator of his company’s district.
Specifically of interest is this excerpt from his company press release:
The partnership with Ukraine, Aeros, and UkrOboronProm, first announced in Kiev earlier this month, will see the Ukraine-Russian border protected by a series of Aeros-made Elevated Early Warning Systems (EEWS).
Aside from the $50 MILLION Pasternak received to think about blimps from the Pentagon, the Ukraine placed an order to buy Pasternak’s blimps using U.S. taxpayer money via the aid package we gave them. #DoubleDipping or MONEY LAUNDERING? Where are the blimps? Have you seen them?
Let me break this down. Aeros got $50 MIL from the U.S. to think about developing AIR CARGO blimps, then Ukraine paid Aeros with our money to buy the blimps to TRANSPORT weapons to Ukraine, and Aeros then got more money to help them with surveillance. Where are the blimps? Have you seen any blimps?
Wait, there is more. Aeros is an “AIR CARGO BLIMP” company that creates commercial blimps, cargo blimps, and “surveillance” blimps. Blimps are discreet and super incognito [insert eyeroll emoji here]. What if I told you Aeros received MORE federal tax money to manufacture M-16s? Yes, this Ukrainian company established over 35 years ago, that came to America 25 years ago, making blimps exclusively, now makes M-16s too!
Incredible how aircraft engineering overlaps with weapon manufacturing.
UkrOboronProm manages Ukraine’s military-industrial complex and proudly claims it (see image above). They create textbooks for soldiers of the Ukrainian army and supply weapons. Aeros and UkrOboronProm worked together, not just on blimps (where are the blimps?), but M-16 manufacturing as well.
On January 3, 2017, Ukroboronservice aka UkrOboronProm announced a partnership agreement between themselves and Aeroscraft aka Aeros, to manufacture a variant of the U.S. M-16 assault rifle IN UKRAINE.
The M16 project was conceived some time ago, as the Ukrainian armed forces, border guards and National Guard will with time switch to NATO standards.
In other words, Pasternak, a blimp engineer, is now manufacturing M-16s. Where are the M-16s? How is Adam Schiff’s buddy getting showered with millions and doing so much when his office is LITERALLY a storage unit?
To be clear: Aeros received $50 MIL from the PENTAGON to make cargo blimps, then millions from Ukraine (that were U.S. Tax Dollars) to make surveillance blimps, and then shared a $75 MIL aid package (that were U.S. tax dollars) to Ukraine for defense spending. For a guy that has NO blimps, a flashy home and two flashy cars, with less than 5 employees on the books… and a storage unit.
Below are Google street view images showing Pasternak’s “blimp” headquarters (storage unit above – Google street image above) is separate from the “HQ” for blimps (Google street image below). No front desk employee and a U.S. flag in the lobby. In fact, we tasked someone to visit. There are no blimps in the building as the company only leases a PORTION of the building for “offices” that house an undetermined amount of staff.
Is the relationship Schiff and other corrupt Democrats and Republicans have with these Ukrainian companies simply “giving” work to friends OR are these MILLIONS in funding finding their way back into their pockets since we don’t see blimps and have no papertrail on the actual manufacturing of M-16s? This needs to be examined, as the latter is the most plausible. Vultures like Schiff, Pelosi, Biden, Romney, Clinton, McCain, and Co. don’t seem like the “I give my friend work cause I’m nice” type. It’s always the “what’s in it for me?” approach.
The way Schiff & Co. are pushing for impeachment, Democrats scurrying to cover tracks, the mainstream media (MSM) failing to report crimes and wrongdoings by Barack Hussein Obama and his administration in Ukraine, and the deafening silence of how Congress is doing nothing for the people since they swore in is very telling.
