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.
Yep, long story short, it happened exactly as predicted: Western sanctions only benefited Russian economy!
Russian Farmer: Thanks for Sanctions, Mr President! Putin: Thank the West.
That said, sanctions are never good, if the world can live without them. Bottom line, all the aggressive moves by the West against Russia have either backfired already or will soon.

Excellent article Lada, so much information it’s unbelievable how much I learn from your writings. Thank you
TESTIMONIALS for all of Lada’s work
LADA’S INTRO: Dear friends,
The world events we are experiencing are very rattling and often negative. Sometimes we all need a rest from the troubles of the world we are all carrying on our shoulders. I feel driven to infuse a more positive feel into our common space on Patreon. I want this to be a place where we can share a smile, and I want you to come here not only for earth-shifting revelations and heavy-duty geopolitical analysis, but also as a place where you can mingle and get to know your fellow members. A place, where we reach out not only to the higher dimensions, but also to each other… As you know, we do Spiritual Spa, which I’ll probably make into a Special Feature, but I also love to travel and explore. Don’t you?
This is one of the reasons I am inspired to post my Patreon patrons’ travel impressions on special occasions and/or during holidays. Stanislav sent me these awesome pics from Minsk, Belarus. We also have the impressions from Seeker’s visit to Agroprom Expo in Moscow. I just love their different perspectives! And we might do more of these during Holidays!
My impressions from vising Minsk a few years back: The capital of Belarus is a lovely city, both traditional and modern. It’s very quiet, clean and orderly, compared to many other places I’ve been, if overcast most of the time. 😉 Yet things do happen there. Belarus is very cheap and is probably a good place for a quiet, relaxing getaway. They do have some rather advanced spas, where they cater mostly to Russians, or those who can afford them. They are quite cheap for foreigners (at least that was the case a few years back), but maybe not so much for Belorussians.

‘Putin and Trump took a huge cart of lemons and managed to produce some pretty impressive lemonade.’ ~Lada Ray
The consequences of the Putin-Trump Helsinki Summit will be far-reaching, complex and fast-shifting. So far I have not seen a single report or analysis, which would attempt to analyze the Summit and its consequences in all its details and complexity.
Earth Shift Report 23 is unique. It not only takes the full scope of the Summit and analyzes it in all its intricate details, clandestine currents and hidden secrets, most of which will never be fully revealed, but it also does so using my advanced Earth Shift Theory and Lada Ray Predictions.
It has been almost a week since the Putin-Trump Helsinki Summit. The dust has settled sufficiently to look at it as a whole and determine what long-term consequences it will have. The consequences have only begun showing up. It’s like a constantly budding tree, with branches, new leaves and flowers showing up every day in all expected and unexpected places. The possibilities of the future developments are endless. As of now, we have only begun scratching the surface of the future potentialities, embedded into this groundbreaking Summit by those who cleverly masterminded it.
WARNING! Timeline Shifts!
We are in the midst of the Great Earth Shift. It’s like being in the eye of a storm. Many things around us are changing, and will continue changing. Much of what we are discussing below is very fluid and before all is said and done, much of what was announced today, may be retracted or denied tomorrow. Therefore, the statements made by Trump, Putin, what’s announced by the MSM, may sometimes be designed to confuse and mislead on purpose. This is necessary so adversaries wouldn’t be able to regroup and act quickly.
The Helsinki Summit was the first step, which was very hard to make. There will be other steps, no matter how Dark State and its agents resist. How and where these steps take place — we’ll see that soon enough.
Before we proceed to analyzing the Summit and its many branching out consequences, I have to mention that we are also experiencing an unusual amount of ‘TEMPORAL DISTURBANCES’ (my term), which may manifest as the shifting timelines. Small timeline shifts are happening frequently at this time, and they confuse matters further. I’ll have a separate Patreon post soon on these very interesting issues.
Consequently, the issues we are discussing here are some of the most complex, confusing, and contradictory I’ve ever seen. Nothing at this point is set in stone. This time reminds me of the late 1930s, before the start of WWII. There is also a resemblance with the beginning of the 20th century, up to the start of WWI. However, as I many times told you before, this time I do not anticipate a world war. One of Putin’s main missions in this life is not only to facilitate Russia the Great Balanacer’s stabilization and rise, but also to prevent WWIII.

Jun 27 at 11:59am LADA RAY ON PATREON
Please read my previous reports in the Lada Ray Predictions, 5D Earth Shift & 4D Geopolitics categories, where we have a lot more on Trump!
One of the latest reports and my recommendation is: The Global Fight for Russia and How Trump is Actively Facilitating the Earth Shift
This post continues our present ongoing EARTH SHIFT THEMES:
1. Ukraine/Novorossia/EU/Germany shifts
2. The Trump/USA shift
TRUMP SHOCKS G7 BY RECOGNIZING CRIMEA AS PART OF RUSSIA
During a closed session of the May 2018 G7 summit in Canada Trump notoriously shocked his Western colleagues by telling them that ‘Crimea belongs to Russia because Russians live there and they speak Russian.’ Despite best efforts to contain it, the news was leaked. At the exit, the journalists demanded Trump’s confirmation he really said this behind closed doors. He neither confirmed nor denied, doing some fancy footwork to camouflage his original Crimea statement.
Russian TV news and talk shows discussed this statement for several days, guessing what was really behind it and whether it meant a turnaround in Russia-US relations.
The answer is complex and convoluted, but I will try to outline it for you below.
WHAT IS TRUMP & WHY HE SAID THAT?
Trump thrives on controversy. He also found that the best way to hide his true intentions is to change his mind often, so his train of thought cannot be decoded early by his adversaries within the US, while saying publicly as many conflicting things as possible. Which part of what he says is true and which is not – he wants his opponents to continue guessing.
This strategy actually worked for him on Twitter, where he has a domineering presence. He is also employing this strategy in geopolitical talks with other leaders, with some success. But he also generates a lot of confusion and distrust along the way.
Some of his behavior stems from a simple fact that he is not sure where the wind will blow and where he’ll head next. Make no mistake! Trump is really feeling his way in the dark right now! He is NOT clear on what he can do next, and what will succeed. He tries to throw things into the crowd and test reaction.
All this is a consequence of the Earth Shift, which is becoming more and more pronounced all over the globe. I will have a separate 5D Earth Shift article for you in the next month or two, where I’ll talk about the symptoms and signs on a personal level for everyone. Till then, suffice it to say that Trump is very intuitive and he feels that something’s different, but he doesn’t know what it is. It would have helped him and every leader/politician on the planet to listen to my theories and predictions. But we all know these kinds of people are just not evolved enough to understand them (with few exceptions, which you all should know). And that’s how they all perpetuate their karma.
As for Trump’s Crimea statement, he definitely wanted to gauge a reaction of the EU/Western leaders. The reason? Probe how brainwashed and anti-Russian they still are. And what can one expect from them next?
He got the necessary reaction alright. Most of the G7 almost fainted and looked at him daggers. The only country out of all the ‘Gs’ where a quiet revolution has happened, and they boldly announced so, is Italy. This was the only country to openly side with Trump on the Crimea issue, and even there I noted a certain vacillation.
Another reason for Trump throwing the Crimea bomb at G7 was to get back at Canada/UK/EU for not being on board with him and criticizing his policies. This was a definite jab against the predominantly neoliberal Western establishment.
Again, this showed Trump, and the rest of the world, how truly at odds he is with other Western leaders.
But I would under no circumstances call his Crimea statement a breakthrough. It could be a hint though – a harbinger of changes to come.
Granted, the globalist neoliberal establishment is so fundamentally entrenched that it will take a long time to unseat them all over the West, and beyond. But the new leaders are coming to certain countries, and they are taking on the fight.
Trump’s Crimea statement, however lightly thrown, also means a little wink to Putin, if you will. A sort of advance before the summit Trump is trying to organize in July. It’s sort of a distance hand, outstretched for a handshake.
And this is also a probe to gauge Putin’s and Russians’ general reaction. Will Russians melt? Will Putin, like Gorby in his day, sell out their country and deny their own interests for a few words that mean nothing to Trump? Will they think that the US is their friend again. Such cheap gestures worked for Gorbachev and Yeltsin, and they eventually cost the gullible Russians their country.
But Putin is neither Yeltsin nor Gorbachev. And Russians have learned their lessons very well. So, when Bolton arrives, and when Trump talks to Putin, the story will be completely different.
Because this is the Time of Russia the Great Balancer, the tables have turned. What in previous Periods 6 and 7 was very effortless for the US/UK/West, will now, during Period 8, prove either very difficult or impossible.
See these predictions in full in ESW4!
The above prediction will help us understand what is said below in this article.
TRUMP – EARTH SHIFT AGENT EXTRAORDINAIRE
Overall, as we discussed in previous articles, unbeknownst to him, Trump is proving a very good Earth Shift agent.
‘The Earth Shift Agent Extraordinaire’ is my new term. I didn’t call Trump that in 2017 yet, but we did cover his general role in ESW1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM.
In ESW1 and other videos/posts I more than once spoke of President Trump’s straitjacket. For the time being he found the right algorithm for wiggling his way out of the tight spot, aka, his straitjacket. He found a way, if temporary, to neutralize the powerful political-media neoliberal lobby within the US. And that’s good news. I wish him more of the same.
This doesn’t mean his battle is over: it just begun and they will regroup and come out with new tactics. But they are getting weaker by the day.
He now needs to see what he can do about the international Western neoliberal syndicate. While doing that, he also wants to try and continue fulfilling his election promises, some of which are protectionism, bringing jobs back home and saving money on international institutions such as UN and NATO by making others pull their weight or getting out of unprofitable, as Trump judges them, agreements and alliances.
MORE EARTH SHIFT PREDICTIONS
Not because he is consciously aware of it, but because of how he acts and what his priorities are, he by default is helping to further the Earth Shift.
Whether he realizes this or not, and whether he acts it or not, he has become Russia’s big ally in the gradual rebalancing of the world away from the unipolar, single-superpower world, towards a more equitable geopolitical structure. He also makes Europeans consider doing things independently, thus long-term encouraging the regaining of sovereignty by various EU countries. This in turn makes more people question the validity of the EU and its future.
This is something I predicted for him in 2016-17 as part of ESR16, and especially ESW1. He is manifesting it, in his usual crude, yet convoluted manner. Very good!
There is more! What Trump is manifesting and the unintended consequences of his actions mirror almost exactly the last years of the USSR, after Gorbachev came to power till before the collapse. But it’s all mirrored in an INVERTED fashion.
This is why I call Trump ‘the American Gorbachev.’
In other words, Trump is acting out and manifesting my theories described and predictions made in 2017 in

Good video report to watch:
Selfie with Putin: Presidents and Princes from S. Arabia to Paraguay, but Zero Western Leaders (2018 FIFA World Cup)
Putin – superstar. Let me take a selfie with him while I can. That was probably what the president of Lebanon was thinking. Putin didn’t mind.
On video below: a crowd of excited presidents, PMs and princes after watching live the opening World Cup 2018 match between Russia and S. Arabia.
All CIS leaders are there (naturally, except Ukraine’s Poroshenko) and Putin is using the opportunity for an informal Commonwealth meeting.
Silly me! I should’ve known: the promise of an interesting football (soccer) match is a fabulous pretext to lure the male half of the species to any event, lol. 😉
That said, four countries announced that their ‘leaders’ would boycott Russian World Cup, and these are: Ukraine, Poland, UK and Iceland. This is no joke, they are boycotting the games in all seriousness, although they fail to notice they are in fact isolated, not the other way around.
Although this wasn’t a joke, some good jokes do come to mind in this regard…
Despite the British politicians beating in hysterics, the UK team still arrived, and Russians are treating them with the usual utmost hospitality. But I heard the British players were afraid to try the traditional Russian karavai bread, presented to each team as an ancient Russian hleb and sol’ (bread and salt) welcoming ceremony. Rumor has it they thought Russians added ‘novichok’ to the dough, lol. Other teams had no problem eating the welcoming karavai – it must be a UK-specific problem. (Just to clarify, in case someone missed it: this was a JOKE).
Jokes aside, as a result of the karavai fiasco, UK team became a target of jokes among other teams. Generally, the UK team somehow, in a very bizarre Inverted Collapse kind of way, is reminding me of the old Soviet paranoia. When Soviet people were allowed abroad, they would look around suspiciously, afraid to try anything and seeing spies everywhere. It’s sad how far the West has degraded. And that’s the GREAT EARTH SHIFT, baby!
TIP: By the way, when in Russia, if you are presented with a welcoming karavai, aka, hleb and sol’, it is a great honor. It is polite to pinch off and try a small piece of bread, dipping it in a bit of salt. It’s considered very rude to refuse, but I guess the Brits missed the memo.
An interesting echo to my previous big report: Armenia Maidan Paradox: Why New Pro-West Armenia Government Pledged Allegiance to Russia & Eurasian Union? :
Armenian PM Pashinyan is also in Moscow, second time in less than a month. So is president on Moldova Igor Dodon (I’ll talk about him and Moldova’s shift next week on Patreon), along with other CIS/EAU leaders. Among other things, Pashinyan wrote on his Facebook that Putin introduced him to the president of Azerbaijan, which he values highly. As I wrote in the above-linked report, Azerbaijan and Armenia are in a state of cold, and at times hot, war over Nagorny Karabakh, with no diplomatic relations. Only Russia can help re-establish peace. Before Putin interfered as a peacemaker, the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan weren’t on speaking terms.
INTERESTING PRELIMINARY STATS FOR RUSSIA 2018 WORLD CUP:
11 Russian cities will host the games throughout the month. New, slick and cool infrastructure has been built in each city, including airports, stadiums, sports complexes, hotels, parks, restaurants, river cruises and more. The new FIFA president already announced that this is the best World Cup in the entire history of the event. Comparing Russian World Cup 2018 to previous World Cup 2016 in France: beautiful modern cities, great organization and well-behaved fans vs. riots, crime and mess.
The largest group of fans comes from… the United States. World Cup 2018 tickets have been sold to the US fans: 92,000. Who said that soccer isn’t popular in America? Perhaps it matters who’s hosting it?

Deep State Lost the Fight vs. Great Balancer! Trump Wants Russia Back in G8, But Does Russia Need It?
Dear friends, the whole month of June we’ll have cool BONUSES and NEW REWARDS for my valued Patreon supporters and patrons! Below is one of the bonus articles, and more are coming daily and weekly! Stay tuned for formal announcement of my big news, rewards and patron appreciation on June 13!
REFERENCE TO LATEST PROPHETIC ARTICLE: The Global Fight for Russia and How Trump is Actively Facilitating the Earth Shift
COMMENTS FROM PATREON PATRONS:
President Donald Trump said Russia should be allowed back into the G-8 bloc as he left the White House Friday for 24 hours of trade talks with allies where he intends to press his case that the U.S. loses through poor economic deals negotiated by his predecessors. “Russia should be in this meeting,” Trump told reporters in Washington. “Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting.” “Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run, and in the G-7 which used to be the G-8, they threw Russia out,” he said. “They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table.”
As a businessman, Trump has to make sense at least on paper! That’s why the globalist leaning EU countries dislike him so much? Latest headline that rankles Trump’s adversaries, lol: Trump Breaks With G-7 to Urge Russia’s Return, Jabs ‘Unfair Trade’ https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trump-breaks-g-7-urge-130030494.html
Lada, I just read that Trump made a comment at the G7 meeting that Russia should be brought back in, and Premier Conte of Italy just officially agreed in a statement. This is incredible and I thought of you and this article! We’re watching the narrative start to slowly change on Russia, the Great Balancer. I believe this comes at a beautiful time – the drama of the dying G7 meeting compared to the upcoming very-much-alive SCO summit.
Trump has solid main reasons, and some good bonus reasons, for wanting Russia back in G7-G8.
Trump is continuing balancing delicately and precariously between fulfilling his election promises and his Dark State ‘straitjacket.’
Trump wants to erase and undo everything and anything done previously by Obama and Hillary Clinton, as Obama’s one time Secretary of State. As long as it was Obama’s accomplishment, Trump’s priority is to make the opposite happen. A great example is Iran deal, as well as TTIP and TPP exits.
The third reason sounds a little banal, and even strange. After huffing and puffing since 2014 (as predicted), the West finally remembered that you can’t really solve any world problems without Russia, as predicted, I might add.
Where’s Russia’s infamous ‘isolation,’ as Obama and certain EU ‘leaders’ professed? What isolation?
You know how hard it has been for Putin and Trump to meet. My intel is that Trump’s people are trying to prepare a Russia-US summit.
But as Donald says, ‘they have the world to run’ – true enough.
This, by the way, is a new world record: Russia – US relations are at an all-time low and leaders of two of the largest superpowers have not gone so long without a formal summit since at least 1950s.
We had seen the awkward scenes from previous G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. Skulking in the crowded G20 corridors and whispering like thieves in dark corners is hardly a way for the leaders of two superpowers to talk.
There are some bonus reasons for Trump’s desire to ‘re-invite’ Russia into G8.
Trump was sharply criticized by the EU leaders during St. Petersburg Economic Forum. He noticed that if anything, Putin didn’t join the fray, and even mildly justified his actions. This is Trump’s way of saying thank you to ‘dear friend Vladimir.’
But that’s secondary to Trump’s desire to stay relevant. It hasn’t escaped his attention that the EU is finding ways to successfully bypass anti-Russian sanctions and to increase trade, while signing new deals with Russia — as I also predicted!
The US has spent untold billions and made so much effort to separate EU and Russia, to build a new Iron Curtain via Ukraine and Poland …
It’s pretty humiliating really. Proposing Russia’s G8 re-entry is Trump’s and USA’s way to insert themselves in the process. Generally a sound idea, if Russia was interested… but is she?
DOES RUSSIA NEED G7?
My view has always been that G7 is spent material and a dying entity. Ever since G8 expelled Russia after the 2014 Ukraine coup, turning itself back into outdated G7, it became irrelevant and is now on its way out. It’s a slow death, mind you, as we discussed in EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 2: INVERTED COLLAPSE.

In this post, related closely to the article below, I explain the new type or international relations proposed by Russia. I also explain why I call Trump the American Gorbachev and where the US is heading.
LOTS OF HOT/ BREAKING NEWS & ANALYSIS IN THIS POST:
US & Trump, N. Korea, Putin, Lavrov & Russia, EU, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Japan, Nord Stream-2 and new South Stream!
One of the latest is a complete 180 degree turnaround by the West towards Russia – as I predicted back in 2014! A global fight not against, but FOR Russia is on.
Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, has called on the end of the witch hunt against Russia and for the improvement of relations between Russia and EU. The signal is clear; Junker and Brussels politicians go where the wind blows. They’ve been getting pressure to rescind anti-Russian sanction from rebelling members, notably Italy, EU’s third economy. The new Italian coalition, called ‘the friends of Putin’ is in a fight for the control of government against Eurocentric elites.
The biggest fish in the pond, Germany and France, have been switching gears in midair as well – and in a hurry.
Last week Putin received first Merkel, and then at the St. Petersburg Forum, Macron and IMF Chief Christine Lagard. Japan’s PM Abe was also at the forum. So were Chinese deputy PM and the president of Moldova Igor Dodon, who doesn’t miss a single forum.
Trump/US received unusual criticisms from Merkel, Lagard and Macron, while all three made overtures towards Russia. I found IMF Chief Christine Lagard uncharacteristic criticism of the US and Trump especially striking.
Merkel finally found the missing backbone and re-affirmed Germany’s full commitment to Nord Stream-2, which is being completed in a rush manner, despite tremendous pressure from the US.
Macron’s attitude during his state visit was completely uncharacteristic of his intermittent powerplays and strange mancrush behaviors with Trump. He was demure and meticulously respectful towards Russia and Putin. He even tried to be refined, citing Tolstoy’s War and Peace episode during the FRENCH (!) takeover of Moscow, in order to make a point of reconciliation. It almost sounded like a hint: I’ve learned my lesson, big brother, please forgive me… As we know, Napoleon’s takeover of Moscow resulted in absolute devastation of the French army and a hasty retreat out of Russia with few survivors. The end result was the army of Russian Cossacks dining in Paris and inventing for posterity the French bistro (if you don’t know the story, I’ll tell you some day).
Notably: as Putin told Macron during the St. Petersburg Forum panel, if France is afraid that US won’t ‘protect it’ any more, based on Trump’s new policies — no worries, Russia will help. Macron replied meekly that France still has Transatlantic obligations, but also has some of its own military force.
The signs of the US/Trump withdrawing from various treaties and obligations to allies are very visible. The allies are in shock.
As to Trump, he is fulfilling some of his election promises, but what he is not noticing is that by doing so, he is facilitating the Earth Shift (read more in next Patreon post!).
Meanwhile, also consistent with my predictions about the Time of Russia the Great Balancer, pilgrimages of different country leaders to Russia continue and grow.
Not far behind Macron was the PM of Bulgaria Borisov, who visited Putin in Moscow last week. When Putin offered his hand, the big Bulgarian instead rushed to embrace him in a tight bear hug.
Putin responds to Bulgaria PM Borisov hug
This comes as an abrupt and drastic change in Bulgaria’s behavior.
The big question is why?…
LATEST PATREON TESTIMONIALS:
Gary: Hi Lada, I’ve been following you for years and I have to say that this blog entry is one of your finest and timeliest. Since I religiously follow RT and the Vesti english translated excerpts, I already knew of what you speak. But this entry of yours encapsulated all events that are happening recently and summed up really well the extremely positive developments all over the world. You definitely have been vindicated on your Earth Shift theory and although I have strayed off a little at times (thinking Russia is acting too compromising) your continuous promotion and explanation of your Earth Shift theory and Russia as the Great Balancer have kept me on the straight and narrow.
J: Excellent article, Lada! This is all amazing news and I’ve certainly felt the Shift in the air. It’s as if common sense and decency are starting to take the lead. I look forward to your follow-up article!
NEW EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES!
(FH&FO series ESW7-10)
I coined the term ‘Super-Bully of the World’ several years ago. Now the masks are finally off and the king is fully naked. The US openly threatens its ‘ally’ Germany with a trade war if Germany doesn’t stop the Nord Stream-2 project. The threats began before Merkel’s trip to Sochi where she met with Putin, and they are escalating after her return.
RT videos give you more details:
We had discussed in previous years how crucially important Nord Stream-2 is for all of Europe, and first and foremost, for Germany. And of course it’s very important for Russia. Essentially, now both EU and Russia are held hostage by Ukraine gas pipeline. Nord Stream-2 will completely change this status quo, taking most leverage away from the US for the control of Ukraine and EU.
US wants to continue holding EU and Russia hostage to the whims of the Kiev junta, whom they control. They also want to push their own expensive and dirty fracking gas onto Europe — and never mind that fracking pollutes the American lands!
Most of all, US desperately needs to prevent Germany-Russia alliance from forming, which will eventually be fortified by the mighty China joining it. This ultimate fear of Russia and Germany (and by extension the whole Europe) working together is in large part why the US/globalists orchestrated the Ukraine Maidan and ukro-nazi takeover 2014. This was also in large part the true reason behind WWI and WWII.
I, for my part, hope Germany and EU have enough balls not to cave in to the US pressure this time, like they did so many times before, while hurting their own interests. I think this is the one time when it won’t happen. Make no mistake, the US will continue its threats and 4D hybrid war will continue. I know the EU/Merkel/Germany will try to sit on two chairs at once, as so many countries try to do during EARTH SHIFT. We have discussed how it works in PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK.
But the EARTH SHIFT is still progressing in the right direction, even if it feels a little slow. I will be very happy to see when Eurasia is again re-united in one single cooperative space and Putin’s vision of Eurasian Union from Vladivostok to Lisbon becomes a reality!
Read my complete new article on Patreon: NEW SERIES! PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
This article is part of the new Eurasian Union Series on Patreon. We are discussing how, despite all the challenges EAU is growing and a number of countries are joining it as either observers or free trade zone partners. The list includes Vietnam, Moldova, Serbia, Israel, Egypt, India and more. We have also discussed Russia, the ‘Empire in Reverse’ and the ‘Inverted Collapse.’ The following posts in the series will address the important and baffling events in the post-Soviet space, Armenia Maidan and Moldova’s Trump.
Notice the very fancy footwork by Merkel in many answers. Trying to sit on 2 chairs at once comes to mind. I actually understand her – her position is shaky and she needs to please opposing points of view at the same time.
What Merkel says in the beginning is a very telling example. Also notice how illusive her answer is to the question about the crackdown on freedom of speech in Ukraine and the arrest of Russian journalist there (the head of RIA Novosti-Ukraine), plus deportation of two other Russian journalists.
The new Patreon-Exclusive 4D Geopolitics – 5D Earth Shift Expose continues growing due to many developing events! It is now up to SIX PARTS, instead of 3 to 5 advertised previously!
This series is addressing crucial and interconnected issues, developments & predictions regarding: TRUMP-DEEP STATE/DARK STATE- RUSSIA-MIDDLE EAST!
Today I was planning to post another major article: DEBUNKING LIES: Who’s QANON? TRUMP-PUTIN SECRET? US BOMBED IRAN NUCLEAR FACILITY IN SYRIA? N. KOREA & DEEP STATE?
However, there are some Iran/US/Israel-related developments I need to cover. This is the new PART 3 of the PATEON EXPOSE, which will now consist of 6 PARTS!
This PART 3 builds on PART 2 PREDICTIONS & ANALYSIS: Israel’s War vs. Iran and Syria. What is Russia’s Position? This new part serves as PART 2 addendum!
In addition to all the clandestine geopolitical goings-on I revealed to you in PART 2, there are several more important developments and considerations.
I told you in PART 2 that Russia, Turkey and Iran formed a loose, but effective alliance of convenience in Syria and the Middle East in general. It serves as a great and effective counterweight to Israel and US/West in the region. It also balances out diverging interests, and the only way this alliance works is because Putin and Russia make it work. Without Russia, this kind of alliance is simply unimaginable and would fall apart right away.
It is also a pain in the neck for the US/NATO. Turkey is a member of NATO, and it aligning with not only Russia, but also with Iran, is very damaging to this Western alliance.
More than anything, this alliance however tentative and loose, is a major win for Russia the Great Balancer. Such things strengthen Russia greatly, and conversely, they by default weaken the US empire/globalists.
Of course, this alliance is also an additional support for Iran.
These are 3 mega-reasons why from the US perspective the Russia-Iran-Turkey axis has to be broken up at all cost. From Israel’s perspective, as well. In this, both are united.
Turkey is being approached secretly with additional perks all the time, and it’s possible that eventually Turkey will succumb to either bribes or threats. Likely bribes, because threatening Erdogan so far backfired. So far Putin/Russia are managing the situation well, and the likelihood is that Erdogan learned his lesson sufficiently, and won’t succumb to pressure.
And YES, as I told you in PART 2, Iran is a more difficult partner than Turkey! This is direct intel from the highest and best informed Russian circles!
(I had someone under PARTS 1 and 2 doubting what I was saying about Trump and regarding how difficult Iran is for Russia to work with, and citing another person as an example of what they wanted to hear. I am not that person – I am Lada Ray, and you’ve come here, presumably, to hear MY perspective, not someone else’s. I am also not interested in arguing with any of my readers. I will give you all the info and messages I believe you all need to hear, and even more, I’ll give you my love and care – but that is all I can do for you. Want to hear my higher-dimensional perspective and my serious intel? You are welcome on PATREON!)
It’s pointless for globalists/Dark State to try to either bribe or threaten Iran. This won’t work. However, it is possible to generate a discord between Russia and Iran, and that would damage the alliance, as Russia is the glue that keeps it together!
This is why Israel’s accusations about Iran’s nuclear ambitions fall on very fertile soil in the US.
The new US push to leave the Iran nuclear disarmament agreement and to restart sanctions against Iran is due to pressure from Israel, as well as USA’s own considerations.
The biggest USA’s consideration is that US cannot allow Russia the Great Balancer to get stronger. The entire package of anti-Russian events from 2008 till today is to try and push Russia back into the ditch in which Russia was in the ’90s and from which she climbed out during Putin’s reign. Georgia/S. Ossetia war 2008 and ensuing sanctions, Ukraine gas wars, Ukraine 2014 coup, 2014-18 sanctions, ruble attacks, trying to tank the price of oil, vilification of Putin and Russia, Skripal, chemical false flags, and more sanctions — all this is to keep Russia down.
Russia’s successes in Syria, building of Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream, rebuilding of Russian economy, Crimean success story, the growing China-Russia alliance, as well as the new Iran-Turkey-Russia axis — all these are undermining the US/globalist-centric world. Therefore, it is crucial to break it up.
Trump is preparing to exit the Iran deal. If he does, over the objections of Russia and the EU, he has to do it before May 12, which is his last window of opportunity to do so legally. Of course, the US may forsake the international law, as it has done many a time. This move will hurt French (example: French oil giant Total) and other European companies who are doing business with Iran. Israel dreams about such move due to its need for revenge and weakening of Iran (read PART 2 where everything is explained in detail).
UPDATE! By the time this article was published, Trump has indeed pulled out of the Iran deal, with major objections and criticism on the part of the UK/France/Germany, and their promise to adhere to the Iran agreement in defiance of Trump. Now, let’s see how long it takes US/Trump to break their resistance and make them toe the line! Judging by the past, such as anti-Russian sanctions, not very long. If, by some miracle, EU holds on to their sovereignty and economic interests against the US pressure (I’d like to see that happen, really), then Russia has a long-awaited ally in the EU against globalists and Dark State. It’s interesting that Germany has already found a bit of a backbone due to the construction of Nord Stream 2 they desperately need! Either way, this would be interesting to see the evolution…
The biggest prize, should Trump decide to pull out of Iran agreement, is that Russia – Iran relations may suffer in 2 ways: economic and geopolitical. Russian sales to Iran, not huge but lucrative enough, may suffer. Considering everything I told you about Iran in PART 2, Russia and Putin will be in a very difficult position as to how much to support Iran in its new crisis against US/Israel.
It is clear that US may try to threaten Iran with war and/or restart new sanctions. I told you in PART 1: EXCLUSIVE TRUMP/DEEP STATE REPORT: Why Trump Was Exonerated of ‘Collusion with Russia’? that this is a very brilliant dark tactic of the US/West: threaten and try to ignite a conflict in one country, then move on to another, and another, and another. N. Korea didn’t work, Syria strike was a failure – Iran is next on the menu…
PLUS 8 NEW PREDICTIONS, including:
Putin the grand chess master and Russia the Great Balancer; Oil Prices and how they’ll affect us all; Will US/Israel start a new hot war against Iran; Trump’s future and Deep State/Dark State…

This has been in the wind for a week. I’ve been following this since day one. It is all the talk in Ukraine, blaming, as usual, everyone but themselves.
It started at the end of last year, when the Stockholm arbitrage took a normal for the West double-standard position and let Ukraine off leniently after Ukraine’s non-payment of debts to Gazprom for years. The arbitrage cited the ‘worsening of economic conditions in Ukraine’ as the reason for its biased decision, effectively telling Russia to pick up billions of euros worth bill for Ukraine.
Last week Stockholm issued a new decision this time on Ukraine gas transit to the EU, and according to the new, politically motivated decision on Russian gas transit through Ukraine, Gazprom now owes Ukraine $2.5 bln.
This is happening with the background of Ukraine recently passing the second law (first was passed in 2015) declaring Russia an aggressor, with a chorus of Western countries supporting Ukraine, or being conspicuously silent.
As part of the Stockholm decision, Ukraine is still obligated to buy a minimum amount of gas from Russia, in exchange for pre-payment. If you remember, since the Kiev junta supported by the West took over Ukraine in 2014, it denied buying gas from Russia, saying that the only gas purchased by Ukraine was from the EU. This was done for ideological reasons and in line with the plan for Ukraine to be artificially torn from Russia, in order to create anti-Russia on Russian borders.
In reality it was reverse transit gas from Russia purchased by Ukraine from Slovakia at inflated prices.
Suddenly, after the Stockholm arbitrage decision mandating Ukraine to continue purchasing minimum amounts of Russian gas, Ukraine flip-flopped and announced that it was ok to buy gas from the ‘aggressor.’ This announcement fueled the present anti-Poroshenko, anti-government protests by Kiev radicals.
Ukraine Naftogas is the state conglomerate responsible for: 1. purchase and distribution of gas to Ukraine’s domestic consumers, including homes, offices and industry; 2. managing domestic and international gas pipes, reservoirs, pumping stations and other gas infrastructure; 3. lucrative gas transit through Ukraine to the EU.
Let me remind everyone that thanks to the USSR investments into Ukraine, it is practically 100% covered by gas infrastructure, including cooking/heating and industrial energy usage throughout.
Past winters have been warm, but as many of you know, a few weeks ago a serious arctic cold front descended on the entire northern hemisphere, including US, Canada, Russia, EU, and of course, Ukraine. In this environment Ukraine suddenly needed much more gas. They were looking at a deficit of 10+ mln cubic tones. And they suddenly remembered Russian gas and sent their pre-payment for March.
A big shock followed when following Stockholm arbitrage’s new decision, last week Gazprom returned Ukraine’s check and announced that it won’t be pumping gas to Ukraine. A veritable storm of indignation by Ukraine and Poroshenko/ukro-nazis followed, who said that Russia had no right to withhold gas to Ukraine. Let’s recall: just recently they were saying they would never buy gas from the Russian ‘aggressor.’
They didn’t know what was to follow yet…
Gazprom followed up by initiating through the court the proceedings to terminate the contract with Ukraine, which, Gazprom has maintained for years, Ukraine forfeited a long time ago. The contract in question includes the supply of gas to Ukraine, but even more significantly, the lucrative contract between Naftogas and Gazprom for the gas transit to Europe.
Gazprom maintains that not only Naftogas has forfeited the contract, but Stockholm arbitrage also took a biased decision and exceeded its jurisdiction. The citing by the Stockholm arbitrage of the ‘worsening economic situation in Ukraine’ as the reason for unfair decision, said the head of Gazprom Alexei Miller, means that the arbitrage wants Gazprom to carry Ukraine’s financial load. We are a business and this is contrary to the interests of our stockholders, noted Miller.
Russia has finally learned to play by their rules, as we see: hit them where it hurts, their wallet, fake capitalism (only when it suits them) and fake democracy with clear double standards.
Miller’s announcement that Russia is terminating gas supply and gas transit contract with Ukraine: Gazprom terminates gas contracts with Ukraine’s Naftogaz.
Good and long overdue move, if I may say so myself, and as always with Putin the Grand Master — completely unexpected. Note that it is happening right before Russian elections. Not that Putin needs those extra points, but he will increase his already fantastic lead!
Europeans are very worried about what will happen to their gas supply, if Ukraine is taken offline. The big problem expected: Ukraine will again begin stealing European gas being pumped through its territory.
It is well-known that Russia intends to terminate gas transit contract with Ukraine as of January 1, 2019, when it expires. But this new move adds fuel to the fire, pun intended.
Just a couple of days ago Putin received the new Federal Chancellor of Austria, who chose to make his first trip outside the EU to Russia. The new Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is only 31 (yet another confirmation of my predictions: recall I told you all about the Period 8 favoring the young men in ESW4: Period 8 Predictions). During the visit Kurz has confirmed that Austria wants better and closer ties with Russia, is against sanctions and also that Austria wants to have a more secure gas supply from Russia, bypassing Ukraine. The extension of Nord Stream 2 is vitally important for Austria. In fact, gas contract and cooperation were the linchpin of Kurz agenda in Moscow. Video (eng subs).
The latest move by Gazprom reinforces the desire of Germany, Hungary and Austria to finish Nord Stream 2 in record time.
Meanwhile, Russian Patriarch Kirill is visiting Bulgaria, and this visit has been highly publicized and eagerly awaited by those Bulgarians, who still remember the truth. During his visit, the Patriarch made a point to emphasize Slavic and Orthodox unity, and he reminded that it wasn’t the EU who resurrected Bulgaria in its hour of need. During his meeting with Bulgarian president he reminded Bulgarians WHO saved them, at a great cost to Russian lives:
Russians, not Poles or Finns, Spilled Their Blood for Bulgaria – Patriarch Kirill Reminds in Sophia – Video, eng subs:
Meanwhile this Saturday in the snowed-in Kiev, Ukraine…

GLOBAL HACKER NEWS
New Tulipmania in the making OR 4D innovation? How some exploit their workplace to mine Bitcoins
Bitcoin fever has been spreading all over the world as prices skyrocket. As the purchase price and transactions of Bitcoins goes up, more people are needed to process these financial transactions via the block-chain. You may have heard to these terms as Bitcoin speculation becomes mainstream and covered in our local media. When you hear about bitcoin “mining,” you envisage coins being dug out of the ground. But bitcoin isn’t physical, so why do we call it mining?
Because it’s similar to gold mining in that the bitcoins exist in the protocol’s design (just as the gold exists underground), but they haven’t been brought out into the light yet (just as the gold hasn’t yet been dug up). The bitcoin protocol stipulates that 21 million bitcoins will exist at some point. What “miners” do is bring them out into the light, a few at a time. They get to do this as a reward for creating blocks of validated transactions and including them in the blockchain.
“Bitcoin mining is the process by which transactions are verified and added to the public ledger, known as the block chain, and also the means through which new bitcoin are released. Anyone with access to the internet and suitable hardware can participate in mining. The mining process involves compiling recent transactions into blocks and trying to solve a computationally difficult puzzle. The participant who first solves the puzzle gets to place the next block on the block chain and claim the rewards. The rewards, which incentivize mining, are both the transaction fees associated with the transactions compiled in the block as well as newly released bitcoin.”
Bitcoin mining is so called because it resembles the mining of other commodities: it requires exertion and it slowly makes new currency available at a rate that resembles the rate at which commodities like gold are mined from the ground.”
Now that it is so profitable to buy and sell Bitcoins from exchanges all over the world, people are starting to use workplace resources to profit from Bitcoin mania!
A New York City Education Department Employee Got Caught Mining Bitcoin at Work It doesn’t appear as though he got fired.
Federal Reserve staffer caught mining bitcoins at work fined $5,000 The ex-employee, Nicholas Berthaume, pleaded guilty in October to one misdemeanor count of unlawful conversion of government property – namely, for installing unauthorized software on the server.
Lada’s two cents:
It’s rather funny, if you ask me. Told you, FSB does a pretty good job! I can confirm: Sarov is a science center for things secret and innovative in Russia.
On another note, apart form the usual human greed, there is another reason some Russian scientists feel the need to resort to a search for additional income. It is a remnant of the hungry ’90s mentality, even if this is not the case any more.
Back in the USSR Russian/Soviet scientists all made very good money, plus, I can attest that the mentality was largely different, and greed rarely made it into the mental frame of mind of most people, at least not ‘the all-consuming greed’ we are observing sometimes in the West.
But when the USSR collapsed, in the ’90s the scientists became one of the poorest classes. From riches to rags, so to speak. This explains the phenomenon of why so many Russian high-profile tech and science specialists moved to the West, namely US,western EU, Canada and Australia in the ’90s and early 2000s. It was easy for Soros and NGOs to seduce them with high incomes.
This situation is changing dramatically at this time, and science in Russia is yet again rapidly becoming a leading and highly respected profession. Some of these people were so patriotic that they never left, and that’s who preserved the great Soviet/Russian science and many of its still secret innovations, which, I’m sure we’ll be seeing revealed as we progress into the Age of Aquarius!
On a more serious Bitcoin note!
