As we discussed in my NEWEST Patreon Predictions, Russia is gathering new allies as fast as the US has been losing them.
Related latest Patreon articles:
Right after his brief stop in Paris for the commemoration of the Centennial of the End of WWI, Putin is vising the Republic of Singapore.
It’s a three-day state visit, which is unusually long for Putin. Usually he stays a rather short time in any country he visits. Such expanded itinerary underscores the importance of the developing relationship.
Watch this: it’s symbolic that Putin and the President of Singapore Halimah Yacob are together blessing the foundation of the new Russian Cultural Center and first Russian church in Singapore:
What does all this tell us? Simply that Asian countries are working hard on broadening and deepening relations with Russia. And that Russia the Great Balancer is doing what I predicted in 2014: rebalancing the world away from the West and towards the East. Note: My newest predictions are discussed in the articles linked on top.
A former colony of the British Empire, Singapore received independence in 1963-65, when colonialism was crumbling all over the world as a result of the strengthening of Russia the Great Balancer as the counterforce to Western imperialism, after the USSR’s win in WWII. As the UK and other Europeans were forced to leave most of their former colonies, within a short period between late 1940s and 1960s over three dozen states in Asia and Africa received independence.
We’ve talked about the end of colonialism and how the process worked in my big post:
Ever since, thanks to the policies of the first PM of Singapore, the legendary Lee Kuan Yew, this very small country became exceptionally successful economically and socially. A stable society with great benefits and good educational system, runaway success within SE Asia, a global trade and shipping hub and newly expanding banking heaven to rival Switzerland — that’s what Singapore is today. And very expensive to live, too. 😉
Clearly, a country you want to have a good relationship with. And when the feeling is mutual, even more so…
ADDED: New video about Putin’s Singapore visit, as a precursor to two upcoming summits, ASEAN and East Asian, which are being hosted simultaneously by the country. It explains more and confirms what I said in the main post:
By the way, this is Putin’s first ever visit to Singapore. Putin will also take part in two upcoming summits: East Asian and Russia-ASEAN.
**ORIGINAL POST ON PATREON LINK: New Ally for Russia? Putin in Singapore (Lada’s Commentary)
**Since we are on the topic of Singapore, great news! I’ll be starting to post on Patreon the Geopolitical Quantum Calibrations for SE Asia, and we’ll begin with my two favorites: Singapore and Malaysia! Later we’ll do Thailand and Indonesia, and culminate with China! On Patreon we are calibrating and interpreting the countries requested by my patrons, and the countries most in the news. But in the future, I’ll reveal many more countries’ calibrations! Stay tuned for my upcoming big announcements, which will explain all!
**Incidentally, I want to share with you: I am working on some new PODCASTS. Last and this week we have had some big events and my podcasts will focus on some of them. One will discuss the important and telling signals sent by Putin, Trump, Macron and Merkel at the Paris WWI Armistice Centennial, and why Macron didn’t let Putin and Trump meet in Paris – I’ll interpret the events and it’s something I think we all should pay attention to! I also plan to discuss the striking and hopeful Donbass (LDPR) elections, in contrast to the growing Ukraine troubles and Poroshenko’s end. Stay tuned, I’ll try to release everything soon! I may also find time to mention other important events as sidenotes within these podcasts, such as Merkel leaving her post of Germany’s Chancellor, simply because I want you all to be in the loop of the latest important developments – and there are many earth-shifting ones happening all the time!
There is a lot to talk about – tons of rich, important and even entertaining content – but I don’t have time to write full articles on these crucial earth-shifting topics. That’s why they will be released in the form of podcasts. If you want to know what I think and what I predict, please listen to my podcasts, as well as read articles!
Podcasts will appear first on Patreon and then they’ll be posted free on various platforms. If you are my Patreon subscriber (all tiers), you get access first. Free versions will be available later on Lada Ray channels on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud.
I went back and forth on my podcast’s name, and I think I am returning back to the original EARTH SHIFT PODCAST, or LADA RAY ESP for short. To be finalized soon!
COUNTDOWN TO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS CONTINUES!
REPOSTED FROM LADA RAY PATREON
Russia is renewing and expanding the previously special relationship with Cuba. The new president of Cuba just visited Moscow on his first official visit outside of Latin America. Cuba is changing, albeit slowly and reluctantly. You may recall that as a very young person I worked in Cuba. I later might talk more about how strategic and important geopolitically Cuba happens to be. But today, suffice it to say, Cuba is only 90 miles away from Miami. And let’s say — HINT — the more US meddles in Ukraine, the closer Russia will be to the US.
There is a lot of economic interest too. The old infrastructure is being revived and the new built. Cuba may become a springboard to Latin America in the future.
**And a little off topic, but an interesting side-news. After the ‘wonderful’ intervention by the US and EU, Libya has been plunged into violence, rampant terrorism and destruction, and the government of Libya has been struggling to regain a modicum of control and order in the country. Following Russian successes in Syria, Libyan government, together with the new government of Italy requested Russia’s participation in the Libya peace process and reconstruction effort, despite the great anger and resistance by the West. Lavrov has been meeting with the leaders of Libya to discuss Russia’s participation.**

Found a new source for tracking my latests Twitter stats, decided it was a good idea to record them.
NOTES: Just yesterday evening I had 13,000 followers. Suddenly lost 67 followers, and all in 10 minutes? Twitter is at it again. Last time over 250 followers disappeared within 15 minutes and I knew it because I had to re-log in just minutes after I logged out, which allowed me to catch the process of the mass erasing of followers. I watched my follower count suddenly drop precipitously – proof that someone is stealing followers. (Confirmed that this is a common practice by Maddie Walsh @1_Earth_United who had that happen to her more than once.)
My stats according to unfollowerstats.com
IN THE PAST WEEK:
you get 1,327 retweets
you get 1,615 favorites
you sent 3 tweets a day
Your best tweets
NOTES: I distinctly remember that I more recently had tweets with many more retweets and faves. Such as the ones about Skripal, which had hundreds of retweets/faves. However, for some reason they are not showing here. Reasons: either being blocked by our ‘free’ social media, or those who retweeted them have been banned by Twitter, or possibly the tweets were even removed.

COUNTDOWN TO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS HAS BEGUN!
Yesterday I posted Dr. Ron Paul Reveals #1 Step to Prepare for America’s Next Big Crisis.
Today I am posting a very different interview by an award-winning American journalist, complete with alternate, non-partisan view of the US Empire and US economy. However, you may notice that the views and problems identified by both are strikingly similar.
What does it tell us? Simply that the problems of the US are visible by a naked eye, no matter what political views you hold otherwise.
The views in the video below aren’t necessarily the ones I agree with, but there are some sane and valid ideas expressed. There are certain more straight views of Trump and current American economic policies than any I’ve seen recently emerge from the US pundits. Take a listen at around 6 min mark, see what he says about manipulated US unemployment figures. I can fully sign up under this statement. There’s more I can tell you about how unemployment and other numbers are manipulated and where the supposed economic growth comes from.
Give you a hint: a big part of current American unemployment number of under 4% is due to new and growing military contracts, as the US escalates dangerous global hybrid and sanctions wars and drags the world into a new arms race. Another part of the artificially inflated employment numbers is due to temporary employment supported by government contracts. I’ll talk about these manipulations in a separate piece of mine.
I know how much many people want to believe in a fairytale, magically produced by Trump. The reality will be different. What will it be, in fact? –We’ll talk soon.
I do not necessarily endorse some of the views expressed, and then there are others with which I do agree, but there is a lot of food for thought, especially in view of my various predictions, which are manifesting or will manifest in the foreseeable future.
Chris Hedges calls Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders ‘symptoms of decay.’ I would argue that the conversation in the video below is a symptom of same.
Take a listen, share your thoughts in comments:
One preliminary conclusion I want to make: The confusion reigns supreme in the US, and it’ll continue being so as we continue on the road to the monumental changes produced by the Great Earth Shift.
The real global future is being made somewhere else, and I’ll tell you later where that is…
Stay tuned: my big announcements coming!
Ron Paul recorded this interview in the beginning of 2016, after he resigned from Congress. Take listen, share what you think.
As always, A MILLION THANKS TO ALL MY DEAR PATREON SUPPORTERS!
I COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
One of our dear Patreon members Seeker has recently traveled to Moscow. Seeker comes from one of the most well-to-do and prosperous countries in the EU. This was a business trip, during which he represented his country at the international agricultural expo, and his view of the modern Moscow is from a rare perspective, that of a business traveler.
I’ve written a number of articles in the past, with pics showcasing various facets of the cool, traditional and historic Moscow (you’ll find them on LadaRay Blog, and some on FT). What makes Seeker’s contribution truly rare and invaluable is that you won’t glean the perspective he offers from me (since I am not a corporate business traveler), nor from any others, who do travelogs and travel videos.
The insider images are spectacular, especially those of the new Moscow-City architecture (aka, Moscow International Business Center)! Just love it!
MANY THANKS TO SEEKER!

How Much Does A Battle Tank Cost? T-90 & Armata (Russia) vs. Abrams (US) comparisons! Plus Israeli, UK, German and French Tank Comps
Soooo… The ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-threatening’ NATO, under the proud leadership of the US, has been running the Largest since 1991 NATO drills in Norway (What do Russians Think?)
In case you didn’t know, during the Norway drills, a ‘poor’ local village is supposed to have been ‘liberated from the Russian aggression by the brave American soldiers.’ Yes, just like that. And it’s all happening right next to the Russian border. So… Who’s the aggressor again??…
Since we have such an occasion, I got really curious about tanks various countries produce. Therefore, I did some looking, and…
The latest variant of the Abrams tank, USA, is currently the M1A2 SEP. Building one from scratch is reported to cost 8.58 million USD. If you already have an M1A1/A2 available, then the SEP upgrade will only cost you 6.81 million USD. ONLY! LOL.
|Unit cost||USD 2.5 million in 1999, USD 2.77 – 4.25 million in 2011 (varies by source) T-90MS: USD 4.5 Million in 2016|
Flying T-90 — The light Russian T-90, a hybrid evolution of the T-72 and T-80, weighs in at under 48 tons – speed, maneuverability and flexibility
New Russian tank Armata: costs seem to vary between discounted preview price of under $4mln to $7-8mln, according to some Western ‘experts,’ but then we know how believable and ‘Russia-friendly’ those are.
New Russian T-14 Armata
Average tank from various world manufacturers costs anywhere between $3.5mln and $8+mln. The upper end can be as high as $12+mln. The cost efficiency to quality ratio seems to be by far the highest in Russian and Israeli tanks.
Heavy US M1 Abrams, a whooping 68 tons in weight – per the video below, tends to get stuck in the mud due to being seriously overweight, lol. Who needs that maneuverability, right? As long as the military-industrial complex gets to make more money!
Here’s another list I found – variations in price are normal, due to modifications and upgrades:
M1 Abrams (M1A2/FY99) – $8.92 million
FV4034 Challenger 2 – $5.54 million
Leopard 2 (2A6)- $7.18 million
AMX-56 Leclerc – $4+million
T-14 Armata – $3.7 million
Merkava (Merkava mk.4) – $3.5 million to IDF; $4.5 million to others.

This a follow up to:
- The schism begins! Orthodox Church of Florence, Italy, in protest leaves Constantinople Patriarchy and joins Russian Orthodox Church Abroad
- Lada’s Commentary! Russian Patriarch Kirill Speaks: Constantinople Patriarch Religious Schism Result of ‘Global Demand to Destroy Russian Church’
LADA RAY PREDICTIONS:
The weakening of the Russian Church is the US plan in order to hurt Russia as the biggest and main Pravoslavny (Orthodox) state. Russian Church is one of the foundations of the contemporary Russian state, it’s the glue that helps holding the Great Balancer together. Destroy the Church – you’ll weaken Russia.
Will they succeed? Temporarily yes, as confusion and in-fighting intensifies within the global Orthodoxy, and as many independent regional churches are forced to choose sides. There is much grief and tribulations expecting the people of Ukraine, as well, since the corruption reached astronomical proportions and the people allowed the ukro-nazi junta to take over.
The so-called ‘managed chaos’ is the US plan for the entire world. Not just for Ukraine or the Russian Church. It is the same exact plan for the US European ‘allies,’ and for China, and for Asia, and for Latin America. Everyone and everything, from the US perspective are pawns in the big game.
Don’t forget, the US is feeling the heat, its power is slipping away all around the globe and as I was predicting before, they’d do anything and everything to preserve this ill-gotten power!
By instituting a wholesale chaos around the world, whether it’s global trade wars, sanctions or religious wars, the US hopes to again improve their status and prevent the collapse! Long-term they’ll certainly fail.
In the end, I see the Constantinople patriarchy hurting most as a result of its betrayal of he Russian Church and the centuries-old canonical principles. As a result, it may be stripped of its privileges or even disappear. It certainly will lose much of its reputation. It appears however, that Bartholomew, blinded by ego, jealousy and hate, is ready for the global religious war in order to become a schismatic ‘Orthodox pope,’ and to earn his cash. Per recently voiced accusations, he received $25 million from the US. It’s also unclear what role is played by Turkey in this whole scenario.
But whatever happens, Russian Church must go through a cleansing and re-evaluating of priorities process, in order to determine who they can or cannot trust.
NOTE! We all individually, and every single country, will have to go through the same process as part of the EARTH SHIFT!
In the end, I predict that RUSSIA THE GREAT BALANCER WILL COME OUT A WINNER!

The schism begins! Orthodox Church of Florence, Italy, in protest leaves Constantinople Patriarchy and joins Russian Orthodox Church Abroad
The fallout of the global religious war started by Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew (Istanbul) driven by ego, jealousy and greed, together with Kiev junta and US, has begun! Read my preceding FT post: Lada’s Commentary! Russian Patriarch Kirill Speaks: Constantinople Patriarch Religious Schism Result of ‘Global Demand to Destroy Russian Church’
LINK: Община Флоренции ушла из юрисдикции Константинополя в знак протеста против решений по Украине (RUS). Translation: Orthodox community of Florence left Constantinople Patriarchy in protest against decisions on autocephaly for Ukrainian Church.
- Решение об этом было принято в знак протеста против действий Фанара на Украине, пишет издание Parlons D’orthodoxie.
The community said that ‘they stopped understanding Constantinople Patriarch’ and couldn’t go on with him. Florence church now joins the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, which is an autonomous branch of the Russian Church.
Incidentally, The Russian Church Abroad, uniting Pravoslavnie (Russian Orthodox) believers from N. America to Australia, already expressed its complete disapproval of the schism orchestrated by the Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew. So did a number of other Eastern Orthodox churches, including the Church of Alexandria and All Africa, Church of Antioch and All East, and Church of Jerusalem.
**Unlike in Catholicism, in Orthodox Christianity each Patriarchy is autonomous and such decisions can be made collectively only. Bartholomew broke all rules and canons of the church, by acting as if he was a Pope. The problem is that his actions are fully supported by the US, as I’ve shown in previous post.**
How many other church communities will leave Constantinople patriarchy? Will this religious war split and weaken the global Orthodox church? Yes, it will, as this is the original design of puppet masters, in order to weaken and destroy Russia, by hitting at its mainstay spiritual foundation. But this will backfire in the end for those who have masterminded this scheme.
By latests polls, 92% of Ukrainians will stay with the Russian Church, Moscow Patriarchy, and they are ready to defend their churches and monasteries from forced takeovers planned by Kiev and Bartholomew.
And this is just the beginning! The real fallout is only coming for the Constantinople patriarchy, Kiev junta and those who are pulling strings behind the scenes! The result may be incredibly and shockingly bad… And they don’t even know what’s coming to them…

Lada’s Commentary! Russian Patriarch Kirill Speaks: Constantinople Patriarch Religious Schism Result of ‘Global Demand to Destroy Russian Church’
The actions of the Ecumenical Patriarchate concerning splitting up Ukrainian Orthodox church is a global demand to destroy the Russian Orthodox Church. This is what Patriarch Kirill said while speaking in Moscow at the VIII festival of the Orthodox press “Faith and the Word”. Answering journalists’ questions, the patriarch shared his impression of contacts with Bartholomew, who blocked all attempts at a peaceful resolution.
He didn’t specify who exactly is behind this ‘global demand.’ But we very well know (and I discussed it in detail in my recent report – see link below) that the emissaries sent to Kiev to facilitate the schism are one from the US and another from Canada, and both of them are originally from Western Ukraine, where the Bandera ukro-nazi movement originated. One of them used to work for the US State Dept. They both are rabidly Russophobic and bent on turning Ukraine into anti-Russia.
In my complete report I also talked to you about a strange ‘coincidence,’ overlooked by most. Geoff Pyatt, the US ex-ambassador to Ukraine, who together with Victoria Nuland orchestrated and presided over Kiev Maidan and coup in 2014, is now the ambassador to Greece, successfully subverting it in the direction of Russophobia.
And what was Greece? One of Russia’s biggest long-term allies in the EU for years.
And who is the Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew? He is a Greek, living in Turkey. And who are the majority of his parishioners? That would be the members of Greek Orthodox churches in Canada and US.
Make your own conclusions…

How funny! The news of Russia supplying S-300s to Syrian army stopped cold turkey the bombings and threats to bomb Syria by Israel, US and their cronies. Russia tried very hard to work with Western ‘partners,’ as Putin calls them, only to see backstabbing in return.
US/Israel tried to find out how to outsmart S-300s, through Kiev’s new betrayal of Russia, by buying old Soviet S-300s from Ukraine. Kiev eagerly assisted by welcoming Israel/US pilots and jets to test how S-300s work in Ukraine. All this trouble, only to find out that those are NOT at all the same S-300s Syria is getting today. The secret is in electronics and control systems, where the new Russian designs are light years ahead.
The training of Syrian army specialists in accelerated. For the time being, the S-300s in operation already are manned by Iranian specialists, under Russian army instructors’ supervision.

Ukraine finally forced Russia to react to the never-ending stream of provocations, hostile actions and sanctions. So far, over 300 individuals and 68 companies are on the list, including infamous oligarchs and politicians, who have property and assets in Russia. Properties and assets are being frozen and money transfers from Russia blocked for these people and companies.
On the list are Yulia Timoshenko, Poroshenko’s son Alexei, interior minister Avakov, and many of the Ukraine oligarchs and politicians. But this is only the beginning! I seriously hope there’s more to come! Those individuals only understand force, they don’t get nice and they don’t get reason!
Listen to details:
The funny thing is, conspicuously missing from the list are: Poroshenko and Ukraine foreign minister Klimkin, who recently admonished Ukrainians publicly, demanding they all give up their ‘secret’ Russian passports. It turned out many Ukrainians do secretly hold dual Russian citizenships. The funniest part is that Klimkin himself also has one! Therefore, the ongoing joke in Russia today is that only Klimkin is expected to give up his Russian passport, but no one else.
The fact that these individuals aren’t on the sanctions list makes one almost think they are… secret ‘Kremlin agents’?..
Incidentally, Ukraine will have elections next year, and Poroshenko’s rating is sorely lagging being in single digits. No matter how much he tries to play anti-Russia card it’s not working. The highest rated Tymoshenko’s rating is only about 15%! Meanwhile, their negative ratings (rating of how much people distrust these characters) are through the roof!

Putin, Erdogan, Merkel & Macron Agree on Peace Plan for Syria, But Guess Who’s Conspicuously Missing?
The summit in Turkey between four powers convened following Putin’s Peace Plan for Syria and based on Erdogan’s invitation to hold the talks in Turkey.
Take a very wild guess: who’s missing in these talks, which are supposed to help transition Syria to peace? Give you a hint: NO ONE who speaks a particular language, on whichever side of the big pond they may be located… Another hint: NOT those who planned and executed chemical false flags and bombings of Syria; not those who financed ISIS and White Helmets.
On videos below: Putin, Erdogan, Merkel and Macron at Syria Summit in Turkey. Note the positions of leaders: Putin and Erdogan in the center, Macron and Merkel on both sides. The organizer is Turkey, and the symbolic diplomatic language Erdogan is conveying is quite clear: it’s us, Russia and Turkey who are central to Syria crisis resolution. Merkel and Macron are sideshows.
NOTE: Turkey’s role is very ambiguous in Syria, as is that of Germany and France. But Putin’s genius is such that he managed to unite such different, and even confrontational to each other leaders, in one room. Erdogan and Merkel have been at loggerheads for years, yet she is there.
But notice something else! Macron and Merkel, by showing up at this summit, despite USA’s objections, are also giving a clear signal to the US and Trump. It happened previously with Ukraine, when Germany and France tried to bypass US in resolving the Ukraine crisis through Minsk 1 and 2.
Let me be clear: USA does matter, and many things in the world still cannot move along and be resolved without US participation. But USA’s power is waning, and fast.
USA, due to Trump’s behavior, is also losing its former allies left and right. There is a slow but clearly defined decoupling of the US allies worldwide, which is a normal occurrence during the Inverted Collapse and the Earth Shift.
Think about it! Just a few years ago Germany called itself USA’s staunchest ally in Europe. France’s Macron tried to appease Trump just a few months ago, and Trump made Macron/France an offer to replace Germany as the America’s No.1 in Europe.
What about Turkey and Erdogan? During Cold War Turkey was the No.1 strategic NATO asset against Russia, as well as within the Middle East. Turkish Army remains NATO’s top army apart from the US. And we all know who’s calling shots in NATO.
And here are USA’s formerly three key allies in Turkey, agreeing on the future road plan for Syrian peace, a plan first proposed by Russia and Putin, and then agreed upon between Erdogan and Putin. But Trump isn’t invited… As we see, UK/Theresa May aren’t invited either.
Very telling, and a very big signal, I would say… Much food for thought.
Putin and Russia have pulled the same impossible number of bringing the opposing people and countries together and made them agree on important things more than once in the past. Examples include rivals such Iran and Turkey, or China and India, and mortal enemies like the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Food for thought:
WHO ON OUR PLANET UNITES PEOPLE, BRINGS THEM TOGETHER AND HELPS RESOLVE THINGS? AND WHO STILL DOES THE SAME OLD ‘DIVIDE AND CONQUER?’

What’s Happening with Brazil Elections & Bolsonaro? + Brazil Economy/Currency & the Role of the US (Ask Lada + Predictions)
THIS IS A FREE REPOST FROM LADA RAY PATREON!
‘The reason Brazil is being thrown into extremes is because neither politics nor economy work…’ ~Lada Ray
Teresa mc: Lada, this weekend Brazil is going to vote and I’m puzzled with what’s going there. The cabal took the PT from power, now is demonizing Bolsonaro and favoring the candidate of PT. I’ve seen videos proving that many horrible accusations made to Bolsonaro are taken out of context. Not that I like him, but this big mess doesn’t make sense to me… I’m curious about your insight 🙂
In my comprehensive report on the ex-president Dilma Rousseff impeachment and Brazil’s 2016 color revolution I said that the situation, much like that proverbial pendulum, swung very far in the opposite direction and away from the socialist PT, Dilma and ex-president of Brazil Lula da Silva. It would take a long time for it to stabilize in some sort of equilibrium. Our Earth Shift Patron, Masaki (Akaida), helped me with the comprehensive report in question. Read it on FT: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions.
We are now observing the fallout of what happened in 2016, and before. The many problems of Brazil spilled out during and after that color revolution. The center-right president Temer wasn’t enough and his actions didn’t calm down the situation a bit. The problems of Brazil persist, and only a drastic change can shift it into a better plane.
IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE POLITICS OF BRAZIL, WE NEED TO FIRST LOOK AT ITS ECONOMY:
It doesn’t help that the economy of Brazil, like many other Latin American countries, is tightly woven into the US economy. Dilma tried to diversify out, but too late. The economy was already on the downswing when she began.
Brazil tried to get a better balance through the BRICS. But again, the economies of export and natural resource-oriented countries were down, and the biggest members of the BRICS, who could help Brazilian economy to recover, are better positioned for economic cooperation within Eurasia, and also Africa. The countries I am talking about are, of course, China, India and Russia. These countries would rather work with each other and those countries where the return on investment is much higher.
Therefore, Brazil is very much isolated, economically and geographically.
Another thing is the high valuations of the Brazilian real. I won’t go into technical details, but suffice it to say that this happens because of the dependency on the US, where the dollar is manipulated in such a way as to produce inflation in Latin America and other countries.
Export economies, such as China and Russia, keep their currencies artificially depressed to discourage manipulations (we’ve seen plenty of attacks on the ruble, as one example). This also makes these countries’ exports competitive, thus helping domestic economy. We also see the relatively under-valued currencies of Australia and Canada, as other examples of same.
Relatively high valuations of the Real are making Brazil economy especially inflexible and uncompetitive. It also produces an illusion that Brazil’s salaries and standard of living are higher than they actually are. In reality, there is a lot of poverty in Brazil and people are simply not well to do, as a rule.
It has to be noted that the inability or unwillingness (corruption in many cases) to properly manage the local currency is a common affliction of Latin American countries. The economic/monetary dependency on the US, and in some cases also on the UK, as well as, to a lesser degree, on the EU/Spain/Portugal, is playing a very bad joke on the economies of the region. Some learned to live with it and others are struggling.
This problem is at least 150 years of age and it began at least in the 19th century, possibly 18th. No matter how they try, L. American countries are unable to break out of this vicious circle of dependency.
THE ENTANGLED BRAZIL POLITICS & BOLSONARO
The reason the country is being thrown into extremes is because the economy doesn’t work. It worked, as I wrote in the above referenced big report, only when the commodity prices were sky-high. That carried the entire country and rose all the ships. But it turns out that Brazilian economy is unable to function well when the going gets tough. In the report, I compare it with Russian economy, which has been surviving, and often thriving, in much more challenging circumstances (this doesn’t mean, of course, that Russian economy is problem-free).
The most important thing to understand is that Brazil had a lot of major problems swept under the rug for decades, and even centuries. Now they are coming out in some ugly forms. Until these problems, some of which I’ve outlined above, are resolved, the shaking and turmoils will continue. In this regard, Brazil reminds me a little of Ukraine. But thankfully, it seems saner.
During the Earth Shift anything that is not serving, anything that is wrong and doesn’t work any more, will be washed away by the flood. If the powers that be cling to it, the act of change will be especially violent and hard.
It appears, Brazil as a country is rather dysfunctional. They tried it the socialist way, with PT and Lula/Dilma, and it worked for a while, until it didn’t. They tried it with president Michel Temer, a centrist-conservative, whom US very much supported; yet the population is still unhappy.
The reason: it’s not about any one person in power. Brazil’s problem is systemic – the whole system has to change.
However, as it is common with humans at a certain level of consciousness, they continue hoping that a new leader will provide the necessary change. He won’t.
The thing with Period 8 (see Webinar 4) and the thing with any dire economic situation is that the far-right leaders tend to come to power. The far-right resurgence is happening in many countries: just look at Trump, Italy’s change of power, Marine le Pen’s good showing in France, the rise of the right in Spain, Germany, Netherlands, etc. I am not even talking about the ukro-nazi regime in Ukraine. Of course these are all very different forces, and the hateful Kiev ukro-nazis do not compare to Le Pen or the Italian government. But they all are far-right, per usual definition.
The rise of Bolsonaro is natural under these circumstances. Brazilians tried different things and when all else failed, they decided to go for the tough-talking far-right candidate.
Now, Bolsonaro is not nearly the same as Hitler, of course, but I just want to make this limited comparison. AND NOTE: I AM NOT A FAN OF BOLSONARO! I am merely an impartial observer.
Hitler came to power in Germany when the country was in deep crisis and Germans hoped he would provide them with a better life. He did… through killing millions and destroying other countries, until he nearly destroyed his own.
Brazil is also in a deep crisis. This is why the far-right is on the rise. A tough leader is being craved by the population, hoping he will finally resolve their problems. As I said, he won’t, as it all runs much deeper.
But that’s where the comparison with Hitler ends. Like in the case of some of the contemporary European far-right, this far-right movement is non-external, non-aggressive towards other countries. If anything, it tends towards isolationism.
WHY USA IS AFRAID OF BOLSONARO
The Western neo-liberal establishment is very much afraid of the far-right. These people are mavericks, usually strict nationalists, and sometimes anti-globalists. And they are populists, which may destroy the whole globalist structure built in a specific country, such as Brazil.
The neo-liberal globalist elites are already having a lot of trouble with Italy’s new government, which they can’t control. They try very hard not to allow any others who they may not be able to control. By the way, the jury is still out on that – given the track record of Brazilian presidents and elites, they tend to be very easy to control.
As Teresa pointed out in her comment, they first did everything to topple PT/Lula/Dilma, and now they are supporting them?.. Yes, that’s how they normally operate. They would pit one force against another in order to weaken whoever is stronger. They have no principles or beliefs, except one: divide and conquer.
Having understood the danger of Bolsonaro, they support his enemy, even if previously they did everything to kill that enemy. This way both are weakened.
Until Brazilians understand this diabolical design, they’ll always be victims of such unscrupulous forces. And again, the parallels with Ukraine are striking!
WHAT ABOUT TRUMP?
Trump should be a natural ally to Bolsonaro, right?
He would, if Trump was in control of the situation. But as we’ve established through my predictions 2016-17, Trump is in that infamous ‘straitjacket’ and on survival mode.
Another thing it shows: Trump is not in control of the media, and especially importantly, of the US foreign policy(!) as much as some might hope.
And the third thing: Trump is actually ignorant of Brazil, like he is ignorant of many other realities. He likely relies on reports by his not very good and not very honest advisors, who wouldn’t tell him an impartial truth.
I see a lot of splits and divisions continuing in Brazil. The divisions run deep. Reconciling all of them will take a while.
One person, whoever he/she is, can’t fix the deep-running Brazil problems.
It’s the brutal truth, I know, but it has to be told. Brazilian state went for the flashy appearance of success under Lula/Dilma, when the country had the money and the chance. They went for flashy ‘DESIRE’ AND ‘PRIDE’ (See the Quantum Calibrations scale). They are still running on the same lower energy.
Brazil had failed to build a solid economic-financial structure, which would’ve taken time and effort, but which would serve them for decades, providing stability and insulating them from crises. The present problems of Brazil require a systemic shift in consciousness, economy, currency, and more.
Brazil and other L. American countries will do better in Period 9 (SEE WEBINAR 4), but that is contingent upon a lot of factors, which we will discuss in the future, when I begin talking about PERIOD 9!
We’ll do a more targeted overview of Brazil and other South/L. American countries when we do Quantum Calibrations for the continent!

‘We’ll build up nuclear arsenal until Russia & China come to their senses’ – Trump
LADA’S CONCLUSIONS IN 11 SHARP BULLET POINTS!
- Apparently, the 20th century and two hot world wars, plus the Cold War, weren’t enough… Here we go again – the definition of madness confirmed: certain humans and certain countries never seem to learn!
- Trump is really desperate and completely succumbed to the ‘swamp’ he promised to drain once…
- Trump’s STRAITJACKET at work: he’s completely under the thumb of the infamous Russophobe, his security adviser John Bolton, and other neocon hawks.
- Oh, believe me, Trump, Bolton and others are in fact playing a double game: with all that tough talk, Bolton is now in Moscow, trying to re-negotiate some sort of deal with Putin, Lavrov and Shoigu (basically Putin read a long-overdue lecture to Bolton, with his usual nice smile: see video).
- Trump is trying to twist Russia’s arms, like the US has done to so many times before to so many countries. Nothing new: it’s the usual US bluff, a stunt they’d pulled before to Brezhnev and Gorbachev, not to mention Yeltsin. And note, getting out of nuclear treaties limiting the use of nuclear arms, is Bolton’s old doctrine!
- Except, today Russia has Putin, and this is The Time of Russia! This time the old stunt won’t work! Any re-negotiation will be NOT in the USA’s favor!
- Not the SUBSTANCE: It’s the appearance of frantic activity, and the appearance of a ‘victory’ — that’s what Trump desperately is trying to show before midterms, and the hell with the rest of the world!
- The Earth Shift continues! So are the death throes, aka, the Inverted Collapse of the US/UK Empire – and it’ll be very good riddance!
- If Trump or US ever think they can stop the process of the massive all-planetary EARTH SHIFT, they are so sorely mistaken!
- All Trump’s actions will do is draw Russia and China closer together (per predictions)!
- And even more so, this will expedite the break-up of the US Empire! So… Best of luck!

#Skripal hoax vs #KhashoggiMurder: Usual West’s Double Standards towards #Russia vs #SaudiArabia (Lada’s Commentary)
And then there’s this:
FYI: MBS is Saudi crown prince.
Confirming all the above, Trump said that sanctions vs Saudi Arabia will result in skyrocketing oil prices and will hurt US economy. Maybe true, but where were these ‘sound’ economic considerations when the diabolical sanctions against Russia were adopted, and then adopted again, and again?
EU economy suffered plenty of hardship, and will suffer more due to Iran sanctions. But who cares about Europe. Just confirms how subservient the EU is to Anglo-Americans.
Also confirms how desperate they are becoming due to #EarthShift, and how desperately they are trying to squash Russia the Great Balancer!
