June 22, 1941: Nazi Germany attacked USSR. The ghost of Bandera. Who’ll decide the future of Ukraine
If interested in the real truth once and for all, watch the real footage of what was going on June 22, 1941. A 5min, self-explanatory video. Warning – graphic footage.
The Kremlin announcer in a measured voice says: ‘At 4 am on June 22, without an announcement of war, the Germany troops attacked our country and breached our borders in multiple areas. They bombed our cities, Zhitomir (now Ukraine), Kiev, Sevastopol, Kaunas (now Lithuania), and some others. Finland and Romania took part in the attack…’
Ukraine and Belarus received the first brunt of the attack. Ukraine as a whole lost 7 million people during the war. Western Ukraine Banderovtsi, who closely collaborated with Hitler and served in SS, exterminated hundreds of thousands of Russians, Ukrainians, Jews and Poles. It’s especially sick that fascism and western Ukraine Nazism (I’ve termed it ‘ukro-nazism’) has risen its ugly head in Ukraine today.
Only much later the true magnitude and devastation of the first day of the Great Patriotic War will become clear… It will take 4 years to finish off the Nazis and their allies and years longer to mend all the wounds.
Yet, some wounds never mended. Or rather they were meant to be kept open for a purpose of using them, as needed, against Russia. For this reason, some dark forces, such as ukro-nazi Banderovtsi, were carefully and purposefully whisked away to USA and Canada, after the German/Western Ukraine fascist defeat.
When the USSR was alive and well, many attempts to destabilize and subvert Ukraine through its western part were tried, but they all failed. The fulfillment of the master plan was postponed, but never abandoned.
(You didn’t really think that the ‘subversion of Ukraine’ was Victoria Nuland’s idea? No, the idea is as old as the CIA secret warbook itself — or older. I’d go with Austria-Hungary and Bismark, at least.)
Those sleeper cells, many of whom simply maintained some sort of innocuous correspondence with relatives in the Soviet Ukraine, who invited them to visit or came to visit themselves (with presents, of course) were kept quiet, until it was necessary to begin artificially re-awakening them in order to subvert Ukraine. The result is today’s Kiev junta and Ukraine as anti-Russia.
I was always wondering how so many Western Ukrainians ended up on another continent in 1945-1946. We are talking up to a hundred thousand. Their children and grandchildren would innocently look at you and say, shrugging their shoulders, that their parents/grandparents somehow ‘just managed to get to Canada or USA after the war.’ Well, unless they could teleport, it was a 100% guaranteed impossibility right after the most devastating war mankind has ever known, when all public ports and airports of Europe were destroyed or controlled by the military of the USSR or Allies. Another mystery, how all these ‘Ukrainian refugees’ had all that money to travel cross-ocean and then buy up agricultural land in Canada and USA?
Per recently declassified KGB documents, even before the Nazi surrender US was actively seeking out western Ukrainians, aka, the original Bandera Ukro-Nazi followers, in camps and among POWs; they loaded them up into ships and planes. The search for the ‘right’ ukro-nazis continued through containment camps all over Europe after the war ended. If these Banderovtsi were not whisked away, they would have to be given up to the Soviets to be tried for mass murder and crimes against humanity on the territory of Ukraine and Poland. In USA and Canada they were taken to camps where it was determined in what capacity they could be best useful fighting the USSR, and later Russia.
Most of them were ‘conserved’ for future usage, allowed to have families and integrated into society. They were given farming land, as for the agriculture-based western Ukrainians that was a dream come true and a pinnacle of desires. Their and their children’s true ‘purpose’ came later, when it became necessary to create anti-Russia out of the part of Russia we presently call Ukraine…
As far as dealing with Bandera/Shukhevich followers remaining in western Ukraine, the NKVD and later KGB were vigilant as usual, but I daresay, too soft. A large number of the western Ukraine Banderovtsi remnants were left alive and ‘rehabilitated.’ Some of them even became Communist Party activists. Many of their offspring are now active ukro-nazis, committing their own crimes against humanity.
But perhaps some Bandera ukro-nazis did get rehabilitated, and perhaps there is some hope for others yet? Seeing what the Kiev junta has done to their country, more and more people are awakening to making the wrong choice in 2014.
As a telling example, here’s one of Ukraine’s most popular presidential candidates, Viktor Medvedchuk, who is an integral part of the Kiev political and oligarchic set.
Putin mentioned him in his Annual Q&A as one of the sanest politicians Ukraine has, and I mentioned him in my recent The Plane Truth interview as a politician to watch. Medvedchuk is known for his efforts to exchange POWs between Kiev and LDPR, an effort Kiev sabotages. Putin, incidentally, mentioned Medvedchuk’s real origin — and I know he emphasized his Banderovets father for a reason, so that Viktor Medvedchuk wouldn’t suffer a backlash in Ukraine. We know what happened after Putin once mentioned Trump… Medvedchuk has already been branded “the Kremlin agent.”
Viktor Medvedchuk was born in Russia, after his father served time for being a part of the armed Bandera movement in western Ukraine. The scary part is that the son of an open ukro-nazi, who may possibly have innocent blood on his hands (won’t say – don’t have the facts), is considered one of the few adequate politicians left in Ukraine. Just goes to show how far the country has fallen.
According to Wikipedia: Viktor Volodymyrovych Medvedchuk is a Ukrainian politician, lawyer, and business oligarch. Currently Medvedchuk is chairman of the pro-Russian political organization Ukrainian Choice and an opponent of Ukraine joining the European Union.
I’m sure, some people in Ukraine, who know Medvedchuk’s bio and who have seen what Banderovtsi have done to their country may beg to differ as to how ‘pro-Russian’ he is, but in the land of the blind, one-eyed man is king.
The reason I’m telling you all this: let’s remember this name — Viktor Medvedchuk. He may have certain promise. Can he unite the conflicting sides of the country and thus ‘save’ Ukraine? Putin seems to ‘cautiously’ think he may be able to. I am reasonably skeptical and this is the first time I am not fully agreeing with Putin, but time will tell.
The overall shift I’ve predicted for Ukraine between 2016 and 2018 is approaching. Trump would love to, but he doesn’t know how to drop Ukraine, as his recent incredibly awkward 6-minute meeting with Poroshenko has shown. Meantime, Poroshenko is desperately clinging to his ‘presidential throne,’ begging for US support. Too late for him, too. He’ll be kept there for exactly as long as the big powers take their sweet time to make a long-term decision.
In truth, the future of Ukraine will be decided in the meeting of Putin and Trump at G20, if they are able to meet. Recent events confirm what I’ve predicted since October 2016 – Jan 2017: Trump’s straitjacket and the absolute determination of the Deep State to sabotage any improvement of relations between Russia and USA.
If Deep State succeeds and no significant breakthrough between Putin and Trump occurs, USA will still slowly but surely abandon Ukraine.
Then it will be up to Russia…

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
DON’T MISS MY UPCOMING INTERVIEW!
Tonight we are recording my new interview with Paul Plane, host of the Plane Truth Show on the Time Monk Radio. If all goes well (I know it will 😉 ), the interview should go live around Tuesday. As usual, the official announcement and link will be up on FuturisTrendcast.
Among other things, we’ll discuss my view on the question that is the topic of this post: Why Deep State is Trying to Neutralize Trump?
However, you’ll find that the global Earth Shift chess game being played is so much more than that. Therefore, we’ll talk about Putin’s latest moves in Asia, France and post-Soviet space, and why cabal must isolate Russia at all cost. I’ll interpret how it all falls into my Great Earth Shift theory and practice.
Links to my prior Time Monk and other interviews can be found on Lada Ray YouTube channel : Playlist Interviews.
By reader demand, much more about the EARTH SHIFT will be revealed in upcoming WEBINARS!
LESS THAN A WEEK TO THE LAUNCH OF THE THREE EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES!
To answer some frequently asked reader questions:
anthonyra82Counting the days until June 8-10 🙂
BarbaraIf we don’t sign up for the webinar in person we can still purchase the video a day or two afterward, correct? I want to make extra sure about that. I take it the webinar is for people who want to ask questions, but if we can’t make the webinar we can still buy it and be privy to all the information soon after. ?
Lada Ray Correct, Barbara. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for everyone. You can purchase any time at the same price and you’ll be directed to the webinar page automatically.
P.S. Those who pre-purchase now don’t necessarily have questions to ask – we have some who don’t. With these webinars, everyone’s welcome to participate at their own pace. This knowledge will serve you well for years to come.
First in the series: ESW2: INVERTED COLLAPSE RELEASE DATE: JUNE 9, 2017.
If you think you’ve heard it before, think again – I guarantee that, like much of what you hear from me, it will be new, revealing and probably surprising. Hang on to your chair, because the knowledge you’ll gain may NOT be something you have come to believe, based on your Western upbringing and conditioning, as well as on all the mainstream and alternative information that is available. But I guarantee that it is this knowledge that will truly open your eyes, eliminate confusion and make you see clearer into your future!
Ask yourself, why so many gurus’ predictions were wrong? Or was it the timing that was wrong? If you still believe the picture painted for you by the alternative sources, then why are you experiencing such confusion about the future?
Also ask yourself, in three + years many of you have been with me and FuturisTrendcast, how good did you find my predictions and truth-telling track record?

TRUMP’S STRAITJACKET IN ACTION
This interview corroborates with predictions I made in Webinar1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? and ESR16 regarding Trump. These predictions were first made in Late October 2016 – before US Elections – and expanded and refined in the beginning of February 2017. Trump, as I’ve called it, has been put in a ‘straitjacket’ by what some call the ‘Deep State’ and I prefer to refer to as the ‘Dark State.’ Complete Trump presidency predictions in Webinar1.

Dear friends, summer vacation time is approaching. I know how all of you love having fun and going away to relax and unwind.
But do you know what I also know? On average humans spend 10 times more time planning their vacation than planning their future. Meanwhile, a clear-minded knowledge and future planning is more important than ever… so you can continue enjoying your future vacations!
Planet Earth is going through a tectonic shift of timelines, consciousness and reality. There is no corner of the world that will not be touched by The Great Earth Shift as it unfolds in front of our very eyes. One day we’ll wake up and fail to recognize the world around us. Unless we are prepared.
At this time, like never before, one has to plan for the future. If we have a clear idea of what our near and far future really holds, we have a much better chance of coming out of the Earth Shift not only unscathed, but perhaps as big winners, won’t you agree? By being prepared and holding the true knowledge, you can also help those around you when they most need help.
Many of you who have been following me for a while are familiar with my futurist predictions and my accuracy track record. Many of you are also familiar with my BOOKS, EARTH SHIFT THEORIES, QUANTUM/GEO CALIBRATIONS, EARTH SHIFT REPORTS and the TRUMP EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR.

The Philippines president Duterte had to cut short his visit to Moscow due to the Marawi ISIS attack. During his talk to Vladimir Putin Duterte asked for a ‘soft loan’ to purchase modern Russian arms needed to confront ISIS terrorism in his country. He must ask Russia for urgent help, Duterte said, after US canceled his arms order.
Remember what Duterte called Obama last year (I won’t repeat it here) and with what defiance and anger he spoke of the US? Duterte became famous after he courageously stood up to the pressure from Obama and USA.
On video below, pay attention at how Duterte talks to Putin – what a contrast!
Also notice Putin’s expressions when he listens to Duterte asking for arms. It’s clear that Putin has to make a snap decision on something as important as giving arms to a leader of a potentially very volatile country.
I’m sure Russian intelligence has given Putin a serious run-down on what is really happening in the Philippines. But Putin has to take into account the entire situation in the whole region, weigh the risks of the balance of power, relations and trade, as well as whether Duterte, with his tough talk, can be trusted. We are seeing on camera a rare glimpse of how Putin’s mind works and how he makes decisions. Usually this process happens more behind the scenes, but here, due to the extreme urgency of the situation, it happens in real time.
Duterte was at the Beijing One Belt, One Road Forum last week. At the forum the 29 invited leaders mingled while China presented its grand plan for the brave new world through the New Silk Road. Only 2 leaders showed up from the EU – and very telling two: the Greek and Czech presidents, both unabashedly pro-Russian. USA was conspicuously missing.
At the forum Xi Jinping made it an absolute point to always be seen together or next to Putin. (The Chinese Belt and Road Summit is an event worthy of a separate talk – I’ll address it in one of the upcoming webinars and in my upcoming interview – stay tuned for announcement).
Duterte also boasted that he was seated at Chinese president’s dinner next to Putin.
However, not all is smooth between China and the Philippines. It seems some forces are trying to stir trouble between the two. It is also possible that there is a manipulation to steer Russia to get involved in the Asian disputes.
My advise to Russia – to be very, very careful. It will take a very delicate balancing game to keep the volatile situation in the region under control. A few wrong moves from various parties involved (S. and N. Korea, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan the Philippines and the interfering US) and South-east Asia could explode like a powder keg. All this has to be weighed when making decisions. I have nothing but confidence for Putin and his team.
This is the Time of Russia, and any moves made by Russia at this time will ultimately bring positive results to the Great Balancer and to the world. We’ll discuss how this works in upcoming Earth Shift Webinars 2 and 4.
‘They want me to fight China. It’s gonna be a massacre!’ – Duterte to RT (FULL INTERVIEW)
Duterte: ‘Trump is my friend, but West is just double talk. I want more ties with Russia & China’
During this period of the Great Earth Shift the entire planet is experiencing tectonic changes and important events. The never before seen situations, dire emergencies and delicate snap decisions will be more and more common. In such circumstances, whether one is a leader or a country or an ordinary citizen, we’ll be required to make big yet untested decisions fast.

Now only $39 (regular $56): CLICK HERE TO BUY!
Macron won French election, as predicted, but with a much larger margin than I saw.
Why? Very simple. As mentioned in the original article The Plot Thickens! Who’ll Win French Election: Marine Le Pen, Macron, Fillon or Melenchon? : ‘However, I will not predict how dirty and manipulated this election may become. In this regard, all bets are off.’
The whole persona and the very appearance on the scene of Emmanuel Macron was a manipulation, as discussed in ESR18: Lada Ray French Election Predictions. The relentless pre-election compromising of various promising candidates, such as Fillon and Le Pen, was also a manipulation. Everything was designed to steer voters in one direction: towards Macron, or towards not voting for anyone, which would have still worked out in Macron’s favor.
There is no way of denying: French people are deeply dissatisfied with the status quo and most of their candidates.
As I explained in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18
This denotes a profound division in French society and disagreement which way to proceed. Such confusion and division are typical of THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
However, the French voters turned out even more gullible and more suggestible than I anticipated, but then, when it comes to predictions I try to give the benefit of the doubt…
Incidentally, this French election reminds me in many ways of the manipulation that occurred during 1996 Russia election that ensured Yeltsin re-election. I’ll talk about this strange parallel in my future book that will reveal lots of things about Putin, Medvedev, Emperor Nicholas II and the Destiny Russia.
It also confirms that my new strategy of sharing my predictions publicly the last possible moment is correct. Otherwise, even more can be distorted by the dark side.
One more remark before we proceed to the guest posts: in ESR18: Lada Ray French Election Predictions I make some bold predictions regarding the future of Macron and Marine Le Pen. If you haven’t yet, check it out. Some things are changeable, and we may return to them in the future, but some are set in stone. One of them is the undeniable continuation of the Earth Shift, which will change a lot on our planet in the following decade.
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 (written report)
From FT contributor 1EarthUnited:
Practically a mirror image of the US presidential election of 2016, today’s French presidential election pits populist underdog and Trump fan, Marine Le Pen, against establishment insider, Emmanuel Macron.

Macron, manipulation and Illuminati symbolism
Lada, I very much enjoyed your ESR18.
Apparently the Macron DM (Diacritical Mark) won (was “appointed”?) by a large margin. So along the way today I saw this video (“All seeing eye” symbolism at Emmanuel Macron victory speech #NWO #LouvrePyramid) which pointed out Illuminati symbolism present in Macron’s speech at the Louvre. So I viewed that video, then found the original he used, here (REPLAY. Discours intégral d’Emmanuel Macron au Louvre). It appears the camera shots were chosen carefully so that much of the time, Macron himself was located directly under the eye of the Louvre Pyramid. According to my count, in that video, it occurred 17 times.
I also noted the following:
00:07 Eiffel Tower appears illuminated red (red-orange?)
00:28 Macron hands up, head under eye of pyramid (first of 17 appearances of this camera shot)
09:35 Spotlights on the stage appear (in this view) to form a pyramid (several views of this)
15:29 Crowd appears to be illuminated in red (this view also occurs several times)
In my view, this greatly supports the idea that Macron is the RIP (Rothschild Illuminati Puppet) President. Perhaps at some point the French people will wake up even more to what’s happening on this planet and eventually, like the US, elect a president that is not so “Illuminati-ated”.
Especially for FuturisTrendcast, I’ve decided to share a brief version of my final 2017 French Election predictions. These predictions were first published on EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 on MAY 4. Everyone who purchased ESR18 already had the chance to read them.
Without further ado:
Final Lada Ray predictions
Outcome of French election, with percentages and Q&A on what will happen after, in France and EU!
Prediction of May 4, 2017. This is what I see at this time:
Emmanuel Macron will receive 52-54%, plus or minus a few percent.
Marine Le Pen will come out a little better than predicted by polls, which give her in the high 30s.
She will get about 42-43%, plus or minus a few percent.
Therefore, the winner of this election will be Emmanuel Macron.
Read EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 for a complete set of Lada Ray’s bold predictions, including extensive post-election Q&A, addressing the following questions:
Will Macron’s win make everything right in France?
Will France calm down and resume a steady pace of life?
What is the future of Marine Le Pen? Can she win the next election?
Will Macron’s election help restore a consensus within the EU?
Can Macron’s tough talk carry him through?
Will Macron be re-elected for the second term?
In addition to predictions about the future of France and EU, EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 also focuses on the shifting timelines and Mandela Effect; profiles and compares Marine Le Pen and Donald Trump; provides a psychological portrait of Emmanuel Macron and his connection to Barack Obama.

By meeting in person with Marine Le Pen in the Kremlin Vladimir Putin basically endorsed her. The meeting in Moscow was an unusual step by the Russian President. Reportedly, he made an exception following personal request and introduction by the Russian Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin. Volodin was the one who invited Le Pen to Russia pre-election in the first place.
Why did Putin meet with Le Pen – a step almost unprecedented in Russian history? Contrary to the Western accusations of interfering in the US and EU elections, in fact, neither Russia nor the USSR made a habit of meeting major foreign opposition presidential candidates before elections. The US and EU, on the other hand, play such subversive role all the time: interfering in other countries’ affairs is their traditional MO.
But the situation is changing. The stakes are unusually high, as we go through the Great Earth Shift. The rebalancing act Russia – The Great Balancer is trying to execute is very delicate indeed. Under such conditions old rules go out the window. New moves have to be adopted. Russia begins taking the leaf out of the USA’s book.
As we recall, a year or so before US presidential election 2016, in response to a journalist’s question who Putin preferred as US president, Clinton or Trump, Putin replied almost casually, ‘Trump, but,’ he added immediately, ‘it is for the American people to decide.’
That single phrase served as a catalyst for Trump personally and for his electorate, helping alter the dynamics of US elections and tipping the balance in favor of Trump.
(As you know I predicted Trump victory, as well as the fact that he would experience pressure to conform and betray his election promises, resulting in a ‘straight jacket’ for him and his administration. (Links to relevant Trump ESR16, Webinar and FREE YT videos – if you are new, it is recommended you listen to them.)
When the US Congress, CIA and FBI contend Russia hacked US elections, they are right – it really did happen… by Putin uttering that one phrase. This just goes to show how powerful of an influence Vladimir Putin and Russia – The Great Balancer are on world affairs, no matter how much various forces attempt to isolate or demean Russia’s role.
A simple mention of Trump in a favorable light helped him win. Therefore, a bolder move with France and Le Pen was logical. Le Pen’s visit to Russia and audience with Putin put a nice amount of wind in her wings and helped mobilize her electorate.
However, this time the opposing camp of globalists was prepared. First they twisted into a pretzel the No. 3 finisher Francois Fillon (20%), by compromising him and threatening to bury his entire career. This wasn’t an idle threat – we have seen some years ago how a promising anti-globalist candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn was literally buried alive as a result of a sex scandal. Then, they introduced their own golden boy, Emmanuel Macron. Created by brilliant image makers and PR specialists, Macron is a very good actor. He fools easily all kinds of potential voters.
Donald Trump also threw his support behind Marine Le Pen. To counter that, Obama, who is (believe it or not) very popular in France, called Macron to congratulate and endorse him.
After the first round, Fillon (20% of votes) and fifth finisher, a pretend ‘socialist’ Hamon (6%), both threw their support behind Macron. Only the fourth finisher, left-wing candidate Melenchon (19% of votes) abstained from any endorsements, suggesting his people should vote as their consciousness dictates.
The Brussels bosses and heads of various EU states hastily joined the fray by praising Macron and urging the French to vote for him. After all the attention and praise, Macron couldn’t be more golden if he tried. During his campaign, he hardly outlined any definitive program, instead borrowing the lines from both Le Pen and Fillon, and occasionally from Melenchon, in order to steal their electorate. Macron doesn’t need to have any coherent program – puppets never do. His puppet masters have the program he is to carry out.
The globalists have unlimited resources, including global media, finances, PR, enormous political and economic leverage, global clandestine intel and surveillance, governments and EU bureaucratic apparatus. They can swing elections the way they want through all these obvious and secret means.
By contrast, Marine Le Pen’s resources are much more limited. However, it is clear that people both in France and all over the West are awakening. A proof that people do decide their destiny and their future, regardless of how much powers that be try to manipulate them into continuing to live in an outdated matrix, is the nearly 8 million votes Le Pen received in the first round.
Therefore, Trump and Putin endorsing Marine Le Pen was done to try to even out the playing field at least somewhat.
Let me explain something about Trump. I did predict he would succumb to pressure, start making deals and dilute, if not forget altogether his campaign promises. The ‘straight jacket’ means that Trump and his admin will operate on survival mode going forward. The tunnel within which he has to act is very narrow. In fact (again, as we discussed in WEBINAR 1 on Trump) he has to constantly throw the bone to the hawks and war mongers at the Pentagon, CIA and Congress. It is akin to a growling dog: if you want to pass, you tread softly past the growling dog, while constantly throwing him some food so he wouldn’t bite you.
While Trump caved in quickly (too quickly for most people’s taste), he still has a limited amount of leverage in his position. His calling Marine Le Pen to congratulate her on getting into round 2 of elections is one of those leverages. Through this gesture, Trump has tried to show that he’s at odds with the EU leaders. But just consider how little power Trump really has: the moment he made that call to Le Pen, Obama in turn called Macron to congratulate and wish him victory! Talk about the bifurcation of the elites in the US and EU!

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18
Among many other things, ESR18 discusses whether Maine Le Pen is ‘the Trump of the EU.’ Included is Lada Ray’s comparative analysis of the characters, values and baggage of both. Who is Mr. Trump? Who is Marine Le Pen? and CRUCIAL DIFFERENCES between them. Lada explains how these differences will have a critical consequence for the French election and EU as a whole.

On May 2 Putin had a phone conversation with Donald Trump, during which the two agreed to meet soon, probably during the approaching German G20 Summit. On May 3, 2017 Putin has met with Turkish president Erdogan. Clearly these two events are tied with Merkel’s visit. Trump and Putin meeting in Germany means the host needs to check in with both. In addition to the EU and German needs, Merkel seems to have assumed the temporary role of a liaison between Russia and US. Meanwhile Erdogan’s visit has a clear Russian gas pipeline / Turkish Stream underpinning, which is also tied to Syria. Erdogan’s message is (as I long predicted): Turkey’s direction is to distance itself from the US and EU and get closer to Russia.
On May 2, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has visited Sochi to meet with Vladimir Putin. The date was agreed upon two months prior, after Merkel’s persistent requests. Curiously, Putin found no day in his busy schedule other than May 2…
Merkel came to Moscow with several goals:
1. To compare notes on Ukraine and Minsk-2 negotiations, which – predictably – came to a standstill due to Kiev junta’s violations.
2. To make sure the construction of the crucial Nord Stream 2 was on track and to check with Putin how it could be pushed through before it’s too late.
Incidentally, Nord Stream 2 is a competing project with Turkish Stream. Both Germany and Turkey are in a competition who will get to build the pipe faster and who will get to transport more Russian gas.
3. To try scoring some political points before German elections, by showing German MSM present at the Putin-Merkel presser how tough she is on ‘bad’ Russia.
THE CURIOUS CHOICE OF THE DATE
It’s safe to say that Putin deliberately chose May 2. What’s so special about this particular date? Two things:
1. On May 2, 1945 Soviet troops took over Berlin, installing that famous Red Victory Banner over the defeated Reichstag, and officially ending WWII. It would take a few more days to draft the capitulation agreement, which would be signed on May 8 German time and on May 9 Russian time.
2. On May 2, 2014 ukro-nazi fascists, supported by Germany, US and EU, burned dozens (by some accounts, hundreds) of people alive on Odessa’s Kulikovo Polie. The only crime of these peaceful protesters was that they disagreed with the ukro-nazi Kiev regime and wanted to speak their native Russian language.
(Putin chose the joint Sochi presser to remind Merkel and German MSM present, that Odessa massacre went entirely unnoticed by the ‘democratic free world,’ no investigation took place and culprits walked free: PUTIN about Odessa Video – notice Merkel looking down.)
For the most part, negotiations were conducted behind closed doors. But the public part is very telling indeed.
As to Minsk-2, there was a surprising unity between Putin and Merkel, to a huge disappointment of Kiev. Minsk-2 has to be observed. There won’t be re-negotiation of the original terms, and contrary to Kiev’s continued hopes, there won’t be a new agreement.
Nord Stream 2 is another sticky point. Kiev junta, as well as its ‘friends’ – most notably Poland and the Baltics – keep hoping that Nord Stream 2 won’t be built. The construction of the second branch of the Russian gas pipeline to Germany will render obsolete the old Soviet pipeline through Ukraine.
The Ukraine pipeline is presently used for the transit of a significant amount of Russian gas to Europe, although the amount of transit diminishes every year as more gas gets rerouted. To this day, Russian gas transit is the biggest foreign revenue source for Ukraine.
Gazprom has long announced that after the current gas transit agreement expires in 2019, Russia won’t renew it. This effectively means the following:
- Russia plans to discontinue using Ukraine as the lead gas transiter to Europe – and nothing can change that. The only destinations to which Russian gas will still be delivered through Ukraine after 2018 will be Moldova and Pridnestrovie.
- As of the end of 2018 Ukraine will lose its leverage over both Russia and EU. In turn, US will lose leverage over Russia and EU by the means of Ukraine. And of course, USA’s and EU’s leverage over Russia and Ukraine will greatly diminish as well. This inevitably will change the geopolitical landscape. As I predicted all along, as it loses its importance as a pressure point against Russia, the US and EU will have no choice but to withdraw from Ukraine.
- Consequently, if Europe wants to receive Russian gas after 2018, it has to hassle.
Hence the German effort to ensure Nord Stream 2 is on track. German parliament has recently approved Nord Stream 2 speedy construction. The new 6.6 bln euros in loans have been allocated to the project.
During Sochi visit Merkel confirmed that Germany is fully on board regarding Nord Stream 2 by hinting that EU regulations would slow down the construction and that they should not apply to this pipeline.
Based on the above, you’d think that Putin and Merkel were the best of pals. Putin confirmed that Germany was Russia’s leading trade partner No. 2, after China. Putin also said that the trade volume between Russia and Germany grew by 43% since last year.
Merkel piped in by saying that there are differences, but dialogue is the only way to understand each other’s position.
Where did all the talk about punishing and isolating Russia go? Where are those anti-Russian sanctions? As I predicted since 2014, ‘They’ll huff and puff for a couple of years, and then everything will get back to normal – just like it happened after 2008 Georgia – S.Ossetia war.’ I also said that the appearance of the sanctions will stay, while in reality business and trade will go on, bypassing them.
Predictions on track: 2 years after 2014, Russian trade with Germany is suddenly up by 43%. Let’s also recall that Saakashvili of Georgia was out of his presidency 2 years after he attacked S.Ossetia, and that Abkhazia and S.Ossetia would never return to Georgia. Ukraine is following closely in Georgia’s tracks.
VIDEO: Putin – Merkel joint presser, Sochi, May 2, 2017 (ENG translation)
The political part of the meeting had an entirely different tone. Merkel dragged (excuse me, brought) with her to Sochi an entire entourage of ‘journalists’ representing German MSM. The questions they asked during joint presser can only be characterised as aggressive in their ignorance and dumbness – just confirming a sorry state of the Western MSM. Listen to the questions and Putin and Merkel answers on video above.
Question from a German journalist, ‘Why did Russia interfere in US elections and is Merkel afraid of Russian interference in German election?’
Putin’s exceedingly patient and diplomatic reply: Russia never interfered in other countries’ internal affairs. The opposite is true for the West: it constantly interferes in Russian affairs. Further, Putin explained that allegations of Russian interference in the US elections have never been confirmed; it was just a rumor spread for USA’s internal political reasons; therefore, the German journalist’s assumption of Russia’s interference in German elections is based on a rumor.
Another German MSM representative called the Donbass people ‘separatists,’ to which Putin replied that the civil war and Donbass catastrophe are consequences of an illegal coup and illegal power garb in Kiev. It was Kiev that attacked the people of Donbass, forcing them to defend themselves. Putin also expressed his hope that German MSM would not twist his words and that it will have anough common dicency to publish his answer.
Merkel replied that Germany considers the Kiev authorities to be ‘legal and democratically elected.’
Merkel has made more embarrassing remarks. She implored Putin to ‘look into the reported violations of the rights of minorities,’ namely, gays in Chechnya and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Then she decided to lecture Putin on human rights. Per Frau Merkel, Russian authorities were not as gentle and nice to protesters as they should’ve been.
Putin did the absolutely correct thing by diplomatically reminding Merkel that the Russian law enforcement are gentlemen of the highest caliber compared to their Western counterparts. PUTIN: “In Europe they have no qualms about indiscriminate use of tear gas, water cannons and batons to disperse demonstrators.”

P.S. There is one more important reason May 2 was chosen for Merkel’s visit. On May 2 people in Odessa and all over the world commemorated the 3rd anniversary of the Odessa tragedy. Per reports, ahead of May 2 Poroshenko was in a frantic state, admonishing his law enforcement to make absolutely sure no ukro-nazis attack citizens attending the commemorative events. Such attacks are a regular occurrence in today’s Ukraine.
Let me reveal to you what went on behind the scenes: Poroshenko and Kiev were warned by Germany to make sure nothing happens that could look bad for Merkel during her Russian visit. Any violence against peacefully mourning citizens would confirm that Kiev junta is a terrorist regime. If any provocation took place in Odessa, Putin would have a terrific opportunity to rub Merkel’s nose in it.
Therefore, by choosing May 2, Putin allowed the people of Odessa to mourn and commemorate their friends and family in peace.

It wasn’t my first choice to bring up such subject before the weekend. But Macedonia is boiling over. I believe important and volatile events are taking place in the countries that used to be parts of the former Yugoslavia, and people should know about them. My forecast is that the situation in the Balkans will continue heating up.
There are objective reasons for that: 1. A large number of people in the former Yugoslavia feel duped and they want to right the historic wrongs that were forced on them by the West; 2. The Balkans have historically been a very volatile and controversial region; it’ll continue being so during this Earth Shift.
The Balkans and former Yugoslavia are usually overlooked, silenced or completely misrepresented in the West; therefore I feel the need to explain what is happening.
A did a video about attempted color revolution in Macedonia – see more at the bottom. It took place (oh, surprise!) when then president of Macedonia Gruevski was visiting Russia and talking cooperation with Putin. The driving force of the color revolution was the Muslim Albanian minority. Notably, some of the color revolution participants resided in Macedonia, but, per reports, thousands of trained foreign agents were infiltrated through the Kosovo and Albania border. As a consequence, then president of Macedonia resigned – apparently after blackmail and life threats. New government was elected, which gave more seats to Albanians and fewer to the core ethnicities of Macedonians and Serbs, who are Orthodox Christians. The new government has been very subdued and ‘suddenly’ all talk of any cooperation with Russia stopped.
It has to be noted that Russia is a natural trade and cultural partner for Macedonia, as well as neighboring Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and other countries of the region. There is profound and well-cherished cultural, linguistic and religious closeness. (As a side note: remember, I did a couple of articles on FT about Bulgaria and Slovenia and how they feel about Russia). There is a strong mutual affinity between Russia and all of these countries. Same goes for Greece and Cyprus. The only problem, Russia does not share a border with the Balkans region.
Because there is such mutual affinity and strong desire to be closer to Russia, the West (US/EU) has made it its mission to sabotage any such attempts and has done absolutely everything in their power to prevent meaningful and productive relations between Russia and the Balkans. But the pull remains strong. Therefore, US/EU continue sabotaging it every step of the way.
***Some corrections to the map of the Balkans above – the map was found on the internet. Slovenia was also a part of Yugoslavia, it is technically a part of the Balkans, and although Catholic, certainly an integral part of the South-Slavic world. Slovenia’s break-up with Serbia in the ’90s was the only peaceful and orderly, except Macedonia. Also, Greece and the European part of Turkey are part of the Balkans.
Macedonia borders both Albania and the illegally torn from Serbia Kosovo. Kosovo is a historic, ancestral Serbian land. However, in the past 50-100 years or so, slowly, more and more Albanians seeped across the border and settled in Kosovo, until they constituted a large minority, and after having unseated most native Serbs, a majority. This allowed Albanians to overtake Kosovo and claim it as their land.
Kosovo Albanians have been used in this conflict as patsies and as a thorn in Serbia’s side (much like today’s ukro-nazi Ukraine has been designed to be a thorn in Russia’s side). By extension, the Kosovo terrorism threat and instability also hurts Macedonia and Montenegro. Every time either of the three former Yogoslav remnants tries to ‘misbehave’ such as get closer to Russia, the strings are pulled and a violent coup, color revolution, civil war, economic/political blackmail and threats against leaders take place.
The driving force behind Kosovo being torn from Serbia and recognized as independent state were Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton. Along with them – the usual suspects, such as senator McCain and the majority of both democrats and republicans in the USA. EU wasn’t far behind. In fact, everything was done by the collective West to create permanent hostility and embed a profoundly unresolved conflict in the region. All this was necessary to weaken Serbia, and by extension, Russia.
During the Yugoslav wars of the ’90s, taking advantage of the fact that Russia was at her weakest and Serbia committed a lot of errors, EU and US broke up Yugoslavia, but didn’t stop at that. They wanted to break up what was left of core Serbia as well. They largely succeeded: first the war crimes committed against Serbs were silenced and Serbian government and population were vilified. Then Kosovo was declared an independent state, immediately recognized by EU and US, but still unrecognized by many countries, including Russia and Serbia. Later in 2006, Chernogoria (Montenegro) was also torn away from the weakened Serbia.
Macedonia, one of the fall-out tiny republics formed in 1993 as a result of the breakup of Yugoslavia and the dismemberment of Serbia, is ethnically, linguistically and culturally an Orthodox, Slavic country, very close to both Serbs and Bulgarians.
We are now observing what happens to a small place such as Macedonia, which isn’t designed to function as a separate state. Every small piece torn from the whole weakens the whole along with all of the breakaway parts. Macedonians, who were lured away from Serbia by the promise of a wonderful life as part of the EU (which, incidentally, never happened) are now reaping the consequences of a bad decision.
In the past 20-30 years the Albanian minority in the country grew from single digits to 25-30 percent. When this minority became large enough, it began demanding more and more political power. Lately, the Albanian minority demanded the post of the head of the government. The current president, whose last name is Ivanov (can’t get any more Russian/Slavic) refused to cave in to Albanians’ pressure.
You may ask, what pressure if they are a minority? The problem is, as I explained above, Albanians enjoy a wholesale support of Brussels, Merkel and US. This emboldens them to demand more than they should. They know that the entire force of the EU/USA/NATO is behind them. This, sadly, yet again reminds me of the behavior of the Kiev junta, who go around EU and US demanding more sanctions, tough rhetoric against and public spanking of Russia – and they get indulged by both EU and US! Why? Because you’ve got to throw the bones to your chosen agents so they continue performing the dirty work.
Much like the Kiev junta against Russia, Crimea and Donbass, Kosovo and Albanians are used by the EU and US as a ram in the Balkans. Kosovo is a bonified terrorist state, specializing in drug, weapons and organ trafficking. Kosovo houses Camp Bondsteel, the USA’s largest military base abroad. It also specializes in training radical Islamists for terrorist acts in Europe.
Albanians, some of whom have fallen under the influence of radical Islamists and ISIS, are dangled in front of Macedonian and other governments in the region as a constant threat, should they make one wrong move. The sad fact is, Macedonians have become hostages in their own country.
The present crisis arose when ethnic Albanian was elected as speaker of the parliament, bypassing all legal procedures. It appears the votes were rigged and/or not counted. It was so obvious that the revolution began and people stormed the parliament. As of now, Macedonian parliament is occupied by protesters.
April 28, 2017, Macedonian parliament stormed by protesters:
The illegality of his election notwithstanding, EU rushed to recognize the Albanian speaker of Macedonian parliament; EU’s FM Federica Mogherini came out immediately in his support. The EU also expressed an ‘outrage’ over the protesters actions. Where was EU’s outrage when the 2014 bloody color revolution and parliament storming took place in Ukraine?
Macedonia has been boiling over for months. Similar mass protests have been happening in Montenegro. Serbia is also balancing on the brink. All of these small countries are being dragged into the EU and NATO, against the will of their populations. In fact, these countries present no value to either the EU or NATO. There is no big economy or strategic assets to be had there. The only asset is the natural affinity with Russia. In the minds of the dark forces ruling the West, this ancient affinity and this ancestral memory must be destroyed at all cost. What is happening in the Balkans is the mirror image of the Russia-Ukraine situation, albeit on a smaller scale.
The breakup of Yugoslavia was a terrible mistake. It’s much easier to destroy several small countries than one large. The people are discovering this the hard way. So far meek and subtle, I detect an underlying desire of some of the former Yugoslavia countries to re-unite. There is also a desire to be closer to Russia; after all, some in the Balkans consider Russia their Mother.

Many see the principle ‘every country deserves its government’ as something menacing or negative. But it’s neither negative nor positive: it’s neutral. It works both ways – to one’s advantage or disadvantage – and it doesn’t discriminate. It is akin to karma, or rather a self-fulfilling prophecy. Basically, this principle denotes the collective consciousness and the general cumulative energy of the population at work. It simply reflects that we all collectively are co-creators of our present and future.
I know that it’s hard for some to accept that in many ways a population of any country, tribe, territory or town has collectively generated and propelled to power a specific kind of leader, president and/or elite.
Like it or not, ultimately this is always the choice of any given populace. Sometimes the choice is obvious, when majority democratically votes for a specific candidate.
But what about a monarchy, when the title is passed on from generation to generation? In this case the inhabitants of such country agree generation after generation that such and such ruler has the god-given right to rule them. When they stop agreeing on that, monarchy ceases to exist.
Since we are talking about France today, here’s a great example: in the 18th century the French Revolution put a stop to the monarchic rule and established a republic. Throughout much of the 19th century France continued rocking, with the attempts to resurrect monarchy, since the collective energy of the French citizens could not agree on a single most beneficial future timeline. Admittedly, all this happened with a great deal of external interference by the British Empire, Austria-Hungary Empire and Jewish bankers. However, in the end of the day it were the French people who decided they wanted to live in a republic.
Or let’s take Assad and Syria. No matter how much pressure is put externally on Syria, no matter how much he and his constituents are maligned and threatened, the majority of the population still supports Assad as their leader.
On the other hand, if we take the EU, the system has been designed to produce fake leaders, who are robotic bureaucrats. This happens when the majority of the population is zombified and/or lives in la-la land, when the real world’s problems escape them. Incidentally, this is usually a road to slow destruction. In that case, the populace will produce governments to match.
Now, back to French presidential election. It is clear to me that Marine Le Pen has appeared on the French scene not by accident. Her appearance and fast rise are predestined. In fact, the sane people of France and the EU crave politicians of Le Pen’s strength in order to change the landscape of Europe. The problem is that the old establishment is so far too strong and the percentage of zombified populace is still too large in order for a meaningful change to occur.
However, recall what I predicted in ESR12 re. BREXIT and the Future of the EU: it is a slow and relentless ‘rickety chair effect.’ Slowly, the chair is being more and more destabilized – until it actually falls apart.
The fact that it’s so hard for either candidate, Le Pen, Macron or anyone else, to get a clear majority means that the French population is torn between conflicting choices. It may be clear to us and to those nearly 8 million French citizens who voted for Le Pen, but the rest is either too misinformed, brainwashed or confused. As a result, there is no collective consciousness consensus, or said another way, there is no clear sense of direction France, as well as the whole EU, needs to take.
France is torn between the past and the future. Part of it is a stigma attached to Marine Le Pen’s father and her party (incidentally, that’s why she announced her resignation – I’ll tell you more in upcoming ESR18!). But for the most part it’s all about hanging on to the past and being fearful of change. Some don’t want to give up the cushy lifestyle they came to enjoy as part of the EU; some are afraid to lose all the perks and freedoms the EU allows, such as one currency and open borders.
However, others consider these ‘perks’ to be a burden, and possibly even existential threat, due to the fact that various terrorists and subversive elements may now be able to seep through such open borders, or because one currency and one government restricts national choices, personal freedoms and trade options of any given country. There are additional considerations, such taxes, immigration, social assistance, preserving national and cultural identity, NATO interventionism vs. neutral non-alignment with military blocks, etc.
France’s curse is that it’s Europe’s permanent No. 2. It is one of Europe’s largest economies, with its distinct and rich culture and heritage, with a lot of national pride and talent. Yet in every alliance it has ever entered it always was resigned to playing a second fiddle. With Antanta during WWI it was the second fiddle to the UK; in WWII it was something like a tag along 4th fiddle to three main Allies (USSR, US and UK). In the EU, it’s the second fiddle to Germany.
We can say that the French basically thrived the most when they made an effort to be independent. In recent history it was under Charles De Gaulle and a few of his successors.
Incidentally, it has to be absolutely understood that the phenomenon of De Gaulle and his proud nonaligned, non-NATO, independent of the US/UK/global banksters stance was only possible due to the existence of THE SOVIET UNION, a very strong superpower, which served as the counterweight to the West. The moment Soviet Union was destroyed, France by itself began caving in to pressure from the Anglo-American consortium. Considering how many times this caving in to foreign pressure and partial or complete loss of sovereignty occurred in history, this is something the French resent dearly.
Therefore, if the French at large were smart, they’d get it that only strong Russia – The Great Balancer serves as guarantor of their continued sovereignty. I am not even talking about being grateful for all the support Russia/USSR gave France in the past (alas, gratitude isn’t fashionable in today’s world of Western egoic neo-liberalism).
Perhaps because of this, three out of four major candidates proclaimed their goal of improving relations with Russia. Yet – oh, irony! – Emmanuel Macron, the pro-EU, globalist candidate who stands for confrontation with Russia, won the first round. And it is behind this candidate that the majority of other candidates threw their support in the end.
Even more ironically, the French election front-runner is a younger, slicker, more slippery and more charismatic version of Hollande – the man the French voted out of office during his first term, whose approval now stands at 4%!
Compare him to Marine Le Pen, a rare French politician who truly gets it. This is why she has been so pro-Russian in her statements and campaign promises. In fact, recall what I predicted a while back (in 2014 or 2015, I think): forget the old division into leftists and rightists. That should be left in the 20th century. Presently, the defining factors for who to vote for are: how a candidate or party positions itself in regards to the issues of sovereignty, globalism and relations with Russia. THIS is your ultimate litmus test.
Per Lada Ray’s EARTH SHIFT THEORY, human society has become incredibly imbalanced and lopsided towards unabated individualism and egoic consumerism, which in the end will unavoidably lead to the ultimate loss of all freedoms through the Western-style globalist project, unless Russia – The Great Balancer rebalances the planet before it’s too late.
Who will France elect as new president? France’s choice will tell us whether the population deserves a better government and a better future.
OR, whether France will continue reliving the classic definition of madness: making the same mistake over and over again and expecting a different result. We will discuss all this in upcoming EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18.

French Presidential Elections 2017 dates: 1st round – April 23; 2nd round – May 7.
According to polls, the winners of the first round are projected to be: 1. Marine Le Pen (National Front), who is against illegal immigration, for strengthening of the French national borders and culture, against EU, for recognition of Crimea as part of Russia and for improving and strengthening relations with Russia; 2. Emmanuel Macron (En Marche!) — pro-EU, represents the Rothschilds and globalists, the darling of Western MSM and neo-liberal establishment.
In my 2012 Year of the Elections Predictions I said the following:
Jan 12, 2012: “French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy. Openly right-wing, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.”
March 3, 2012: “French elections, April–May 2012 – Nicolas Sarkozy. No change in my prediction. He’ll still lose the election – more emphatically so!”
April 28, 2012: Finalized French election prediction: “On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election. The next President of France, breaking with the long-standing French tradition of allowing a president 2 terms in the office, will be… Francois Hollande.
Most importantly, with the new man at the helm, the direction of French politics will undergo a certain change. However, I wouldn’t expect TOO MUCH of a change at this time. Real change will come later. Some change to the emigration policy from the poor countries, which is a big problem in many European countries. The European countries will attempt to coordinate their emigration policies and certain border controls will be introduced very soon. But the emigration mess will take a very long time to sort out.
Perhaps most notably, with the new president France will change some of its foreign policy. For one, France will stop playing, forgive the expression, “The French poodle” to the US foreign policy, the role it’s been playing during Sarkozy’s neocon tenure. France will re-acquire its more independent stance on foreign affairs, which it used to enjoy under various other presidents since Charles De Gaulle. And hopefully, France’s policy will acquire a more peaceful flavor, as support for invasions and bombings of other countries wanes.
However, if Francois Hollande fails to fulfill these deep-seated hopes of his electorate, the French people will likely vote him out of the office five years from now. In that case, Marine Le Pen, the rising star of the French politics, emphasizing pride in France, its roots and culture, who’s anti-emigration and anti-war, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.”
FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2017: THE PLOT THICKENS
When I predicted all the above, the French president was still Nicolas Sarkozy and no one believed he could lose to Francois Hollande. I was told that ‘this won’t happen because the French traditionally allow their president two terms.’ A month later Francois Hollande won French Presidential Elections 2012.
But my predictions continued coming true. In 2016 it became clear that Hollande indeed lost so much support that he was forced to withdraw his candidacy from 2017 elections. Still obscure in 2012, Marine Le Pen became the 2017 election frontrunner.
Many have asked me whether my predictions for her have changed since 2012, based on a new reality. Indeed, a number of new faces emerged that weren’t in the picture in 2012… and the plot has thickened.
Conservative Francois Fillon announced a balanced platform, including being in favor of improved relations with Russia. As part of his agenda, he vowed to make sure that there is no new cold war between Russia and the West. His views reminded the French of Charles de Gaulle and the pre-NATO stance of France as a more or less neutral moderator between the West and Russia. As a result, Fillon briefly shot up to No. 1 spot in polls. We know what happened next: an attack designed to bring down Fillon via a corruption scandal implicating his wife and himself. This cost Fillon dearly and his rating plunged to under 20 percent.
Meanwhile, out of nowhere a new face emerged: Emmanuel Macron, who styles himself as an ‘independent.’ Former Rothschild banker, backed by MSM, shadow interests and global corporations, he announced his pro-EU, pro-immigration and pro-NATO stance. He began blaming Russia for hacking and interference in French elections, although when asked for proof, he was unable to present any. Macron also became known for stealing the lines of other candidates, notably from Marine Le Pen and Fillon, and saying whatever his audience wanted to hear at any given moment. This was done in order to undercut rival candidates and confuse voters. The strategy has partially worked and according to latest polls, Macron climbed to No. 1 spot and one point ahead of Marine Le Pen, just one day before the 1st round of elections. His rating hovers more or less in the 24 – 25 percent range.
According to polls and MSM, Macron and Marine Le Pen are most likely to make it to the run-off in May. According to polls, Macron in the second round will beat any other candidate, regardless who it is, Le Pen, Fillon or Melenchon.
Macron has two major advantages: 1. He is the darling of MSM, EU, globalists and shadow forces, with all their unlimited resources and ability to swing elections. 2. He is very young, still in his 30s. During this Period 8 a younger man may have an advantage.
But three factors raise red flags in the rosy picture painted by MSM and establishment on behalf of Emmanuel Macron:
1. In 2016 US Elections, polls and MSM also proclaimed a substantial Hillary’s advantage over Trump, yet Trump won. Are we seeing a similar case of media and establishment collusion to deceive the people?
2. Until several months ago Macron was a nobody in politics. He was built up by a very talented and expensive team of political image makers, whose job it was to create a candidate who would undercut Le Pen’s new French revolution and Fillon’s traditional reason, somewhat akin to Gen. De Gaulle’s, thus allowing the globalists to perpetuate their usual agenda.
3. Since he was slapped together as a candidate pretty hastily, he had no time (nor possibility) to solidify his support. Therefore, Macron’s base is very fluid and undecided, and it can swing to the other side very easily.
All this gives hope to Marine Le Pen, although the newly emerging left-wing candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon has gained dramatically in the past month. Melenchon is touted by some as a French Che Guevara. He has some seemingly radical views, such as exiting EU and taxing the rich. Although lately he softened his stance on EU and he now proposes to ‘reform the EU’ instead of exiting it. This just goes to show how easily politicians proclaim slogans in order to gain votes. What they say during campaign and what they will do later more often than not does not correlate. Just look at Trump before and after. (Listen to my ESR16 and Trump Webinar where I predicted all this would happen. Also there are several good analytical FREE vids on Trump on LadaRayChannel).
The only French candidate who has been honest and steadfast since day one and who has not changed her stance on issues, despite enormous pressure and violent threats, is Marine Le Pen. Love her or hate her, she is the only candidate of the four who has a very stable and loyal base.
Another thing about Marine Le Pen is that, just like Trump, she is most definitely underpolling. In other words, she is not given a fair opinion poll rating, while Macron’s numbers are inflated. Same happened in the US between Hillary Clinton and Trump, which was done to create confusion and attempt to stir voters towards voting for the global establishment’s chosen candidate, Clinton.
Marine Le Pen has withstood all the attacks on her character and all attempts of implicating her in a corruption scandal. Unlike Fillon and his wife’s illegal salary scandal, Le Pen has not lost any voter support as a result of MSM claims of her connection with the Kremlin. Instead of killing her political career, this orchestrated attempt to disparage her may have solidified her support base.
The brave Le Pen even went to Moscow, where she was received by Vladimir Putin. A very bold and unusual move indeed; I don’t recall Putin ever meeting with any major Western presidential candidate before elections. It turned out that such meeting helped Le Pen to shut up her critics.
Another point about Le Pen: apart from the usual nationalistic, anti-terrorism and anti-immigration right-wing conservative crowd, she may surprise by drawing her support in unusual places. For example, according to latest polls, her support among LGBT community increased from 9% to 16.5% as a result of terrorist acts and attacks targeting gays in the US and EU.
Yet another segment overlooked: analysts suspect that Le Pen is likely to be supported by the silent majority of women.
In general, even if we assume that polls are not manipulated, it is most likely that during such polls most people would not answer truthfully who they’d vote for, for fear of retribution. But when the polling day comes, they may end up giving their vote for Le Pen or for another dark horse, Melenchon.
At this time, I am operating under an assumption that there will be an attempt to manipulate this French presidential election. Will it succeed? This will depend on how closely the election is watched and by how large the gap between candidates is.
I agree with polls that Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron will be the first round’s 1st and 2nd finishers (not necessarily in this order). As a matter of fact, it would be better for Le Pen to finish the first round in second position.
Therefore, Le Pen and Macron will face off in the second round on May 7.
I usually don’t change my predictions, once they’ve been made. However, let’s remember that when I initially made Le Pen 2017 win prediction in 2012, none of the present candidates were there, Macron generally having come out of nowhere. Such confusing and fast-evolving political and geopolitical scene is typical of the times of great change — typical of the Great Earth Shift.
Who will be the next French president and what can we expect from her or him going forward? Will France exit EU and NATO? Can we expect an improvement of relations with Russia? Perhaps I’ll discuss all this in the follow-up.
QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS OF FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES 2017
We have previously discussed that Quantum and Geo Calibrations are the best tool for quantifying and comparatively analyzing the energy manifested in our 3D reality.
In EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16 I calibrated both Trump and Hillary before the elections, and based on those calibrations I confirmed what I’d predicted since 2015, that Hillary could not win US presidential election 2016, no matter how many falsified poll results were shoved in our faces.
In Webinar 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? I calibrated Trump’s wife Melania and Jackie Kennedy, to illustrate a point. Below you can see links to other Quantum Calibrations and Geo Calibrations works of mine.
Today, in the run-up to French election, I want to calibrate the French presidential candidates.
Quantum Calibrations – QC; Chi level – CHI; Heart Chakra – HC
Marine Le Pen
QC 409 (reason); CHI 200 (confrontational courage); HC 280 (neutrality/friendliness)
QC 180 (pride); CHI 191 (yearning/striving); HC 180 (pride)
QC 195 (yearning/striving); CHI 190 (yearning/striving); HC 150 (anger/bitterness)
QC 141 (greed/desire); CHI 280 (neutrality/friendliness); HC 181 (pride)
QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS INTERPRETATION
Marine Le Pen calibrations are by far the highest and they are all at, or above, the minimum positive level of 200. Le Pen’s HC value is unusually high for a major Western politician, in fact I’ve never seen this in a Western presidential candidate. If such politicians appear at all, it is indicative of a hopeful shift in the political reality of the West. Based on all this, Le Pen should win this election (recall my 2012 prediction!) unless a voter manipulation and/or fraud takes place!
Macron calibrations are all below the minimum positive level of 200 and they are a match to those of the EU, Merkel and globalist forces who are behind him – no wonder he is their chosen candidate. Compared to Le Pen’s they are way too low and he can win only if fraud and results manipulation takes place. His CHI at 191 is indicative of how much he is yearning and striving to win this election in order to prove that his bosses bet on the right horse. They further show that he is not for real: he is a made-up candidate, with no real voter support and he runs on an illusion created for him by his image makers and MSM.
Fillon calibrations indicate how much he is striving to get out of the bad situation into which he was plunged by the engineered corruption scandal, and how much he wants to prove that he remains a worthy candidate. His HC calibration is bad, but understandable due to his anger and bitterness as a result of the corruption accusation resulting in damage to his political career. While a tad higher than Macron’s, these calibrations are all below 200 and are insufficient to win, if honest election is conducted.
Melenchon QC is very telling – at the level of desire: there is a lot of desire (you can call it greed) to get to that coveted spot, which allows one to get to round 2, or at least, to put one on the political map. HC is only at the level of pride, and this is average for Western politicians. Therefore, if Melenchon won French elections, I wouldn’t trust him or his promises any more than I’d trust those of Merkel (more or less on par with her QC), or those of Obama. The CHI level is remarkably higher compared to other 3 candidates. The CHI calibration denotes Earthly Energy Manifestation. His higher CHI level explains why Melenchon suddenly shot up in ratings, gaining on other candidates after his successful debate and social media appearances.
All in all, Marine Le Pen should be a clear front-runner, as I first predicted in 2012. However, I will not predict how dirty and manipulated this election may become. In this regard, all bets are off.
Wishing the best of luck to the people of France.

Due to a broad-range international consequences of Trump’s attacks against Shairat Airforce Base in Syria, for the rest of this week I am publishing a series of my new articles related to the Gordian Knot of entangled relations between the following players:
US / Trump / Tillerson
Syria / Assad
China / Xi
Russia / Putin / Lavrov
I want to again emphasize that the world is going through a giant tectonic shift on all levels of consciousness and everyday existence of mankind. To describe this giant metamorphosis I coined the term THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
The first, fictional account of this multi-dimensional process and its possible consequences appeared in my 2012 novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. Although a fictional story, it gives you a glimpse into what is taking place on our planet, beyond the obvious.
As part of my EARTH SHIFT theory, I have defined the role of various global powers, most importantly, RUSSIA – THE GREAT BALANCER. The other geopolitical superpowers, geo locations and countries play their own roles in the composite structure of our world, and they have their own role to play in the Earth Shift – big or small. Some elements of my EARTH SHIFT theory and practice have been discussed in past EARTH SHIFT REPORTS and WEBINARS. Much more will be presented to you in future WEBINARS and non-fiction BOOKS on which I am presently working.
I’ll continue publishing free articles on FuturisTrendcast and free videos on LadaRayChannel. This is part one of the new series, following my recent #Trump and US #Syria Attack: Hate to Say I Told You So!
WAS TRUMP’S SYRIA ATTACK AN AFFRONT TO CHINA?
Of course, it was. It was a true humiliation to China and its leader Xi Jinping, who during the US attack against Syrian Shairat base was in Orlando to talk trade and relations improvement with Trump.
It is well-known that China recognizes Assad as legitimate leader of Syria and maintains that Syrian conflict can only be resolved via peaceful negotiations.
That very poorly executed US cruise missile strike may have even been rushed to coincide with the Xi’s visit. This partially may account for the sloppiness of the execution, when so many targets were missed.
Actually, it was an embarrassing for the US military strike, all things considered. Only 23 out 59 Tomahawk missiles landed within the base, most of them causing little damage. The rest of the Tomahawk missiles disappeared into thin air (were lost in transit or landed in the sea, if you believe the official line). Some hit peaceful villages, killing innocent civilians. Most damage was to relatively unimportant objects, such as canteen and old planes. The air strip and most structures are intact and jets are still flying. Syrian airforce base was back in operation shortly after the attack – another testament to the low effectiveness of the strike.
This tell us: 1. Tomahawk missiles aren’t very good. 2. It was a sloppy operation for two reasons: it was hastily put together and it wasn’t very well thought through.
But I will tell you tha tin my opinion it didn’t need to be thought through that well. The true plan for this strike, as well as the related false flag Idlib ‘sarin gas chemical attack’ was to sabotage any possible improvement in Russia-US relations.
I want to stress yet again something that perhaps not all are grasping. No matter how you look at it, the whole op had to be prepared well in advance. The Idlib chemical attack false flag; Trump’s straight jacket; intel on Syrian base, delivering, prepping, calibrating missiles – all this takes time and coordination. The entire complex op took some time to prepare, as pointed out in #Trump and US #Syria Attack.
You’ll ask where does China and Xi’s visit come into this? Very simple: Trump has a fixation over ‘showing China its place,’ ‘military escalation with China,’ and ‘taking jobs away from China.’ Listen to my Webinar follow up YT video: TRUMP’S WAR vs CHINA AND IRAN. RUSSIA NO LONGER US ENEMY? LadaRayWebinar1 Q3.
It seems Trump wanted to use the opportunity of Xi’s visit to show who the boss is and to send China a message. This was why the strike was a bit rushed – someone whated it to take place during Xi’s visit.
Since China’s position on Syria and Assad – coinciding with Russia’s – is well-known, a missile strike during Chinese President’s visit can only signify a disrespect of China. If you are receiving another power’s leader in your home, the least you can do is be a gracious host.
The US showed itself as not so gracious of a host (or guest) in the past. But there is a marked difference between what was happening in the past and what we’ve seen with Syria strike during Xi’s visit. The striking distinction is that in previous manifestations, such underhanded actions by the US were usually well-hidden and ingenious in their deviousness. When Kissinger and such were in charge of those devious designs, at least they were smart. What we see with the present situation is sloppiness, unprofessionalism and some sort of juvenile gloating.
Another interesting detail is a seeming lack of proper analysis and strategic calculation in Trump’s actions. At least one huge mistake made by Trump: two enemies were created in one fell swoop: Russia and China (I’m not even talking about Iran). Trying to play Russia against China, as the original Kissinger plan implied, was awfully devious, but smart. The Syria stunt wasn’t smart.
Of course, I have to immediately qualify this by reiterating what I’ve always maintained: Russia and Putin would never allow a hot WWIII to take place. This is one of the roles of the planetary GREAT BALANCER. Russia will do everything to calm the situation and take it out of the realm if the US cowboy hotheads and into the realm of diplomacy.
That said, Russia will make it absolutely clear that no further breach of Syrian air space, or any other illegal acts by US/West, will be tolerated. (At this very moment US Sec of State Rex Tillerson is meeting with Sergey Lavrov in Moscow – I’ll have a separate post about this meeting and what it means.)
Let’s refer again to LADA RAY WEBINAR: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? where we have discussed the secret Kissinger plan proposed to Trump when he first took office in January, 2017.
According to this plan, Trump would have tried to entice Russia to distance from China and reduce Russia’s nuclear arsenals in exchange for several major concessions on USA’s part, including: 1. USA’s gradual distancing from Ukraine, with subsequent release of Ukraine from US/EU grip; 2. West’s recognition of Crimea; 3. Repeal of anti-Russian sanctions. 4. There may have been other minor perks, so to speak, such as Russia rejoining G7.
In the WEBINAR we did a full-spectrum analysis of the Kissinger plan. I explained how Russia would NOT fall for any of it. In the past, under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, Russia did fall for ‘US offers.’ It never ended well. I explained why Russia would never agree to any sort of new nuclear arsenal reduction treaty with US, why Russia didn’t really care about Crimea being recognized, and why Russia didn’t mind the sanctions. As a matter of fact, in my opinion, more sanctions would be even better, especially those of financial nature. This would spur Russia to finally deal with the imposed by the West in the ’90s predatory financial system.
In order to prove that he was right in wanting to get on a good foot with Russia, and to silence his critics, Trump needed some substantial international victory or two. In the WEBINAR I explained how Trump made crucial mistakes in international relations from the start. He trumpeted everywhere how he would exchange a nuclear arms reduction treaty for certain deals with Russia. He bragged about it publicly without first checking with Putin if this was something Russia would even consider. That was an unforgivable faux pas. I said Trump was inexperienced and it showed: “wet behind the ears’ comes to mind. Although, I have to say that Obama wasn’t any better and neither would Hillary be.
Remember that famous secret phone call between Putin and Trump? In essence Trump’s inappropriate public assumptions made Putin teach him what to do and what not to do in international relations. He made Putin tell him WHAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.
As those of you who listened to the WEBINAR recall, I explained that Trump was used to making deals and that he thought that he would just ride in on his white horse, start making deals left a right and the whole world would be his.
Unfortunately for Trump, Putin is way out of his league. As you know, in the WEBINAR I concluded that Trump really had absolutely nothing to offer Russia. None of the offers (and we discussed them all in detail), gave anything to Russia that Russia truly needed, or wanted enough to sacrifice her strategic interests.
As a side note: sometimes one has to wonder if Trump is just a big child. As a matter of fact, the severe infantilization syndrome has become a common trait of the US and Western politics. Just look at the likes of the UK’s FM Boris Johnson. It’s worrying that so many weapons of mass destruction, global economic and financial instruments are concentrated in the hands of the ‘bipolar teenagers.’
Back to Trump-Putin phone call: Alas, it’s been all downhill since that conversation between Putin and Trump. It seems Trump has decided that since Russia won’t give him what he wanted, namely a great victory and an opportunity to look good while riding into the Capitol on that proverbial white horse, he’d make Russia pay.
Of course, this coincided with the gradual tightening of that proverbial ‘Trump’s straight jacket.’ The result is Trump’s / US Syria Attack and new escalation.
No, US strike was not done exclusively or specifically as a message for China, as some suggested. However, it was a meaningful coincidence that Xi happened to visit the US at that moment.
The complex op was planned well in advance, in order to prevent Russia-US relations improvement and to sabotage the pre-announced potential meeting between Putin and Trump, which was initially planned for April or May. After what happened in Syria, the Putin-Trump meeting is likely to be postponed.
Meanwhile, the Chinese President Xi’s visit to Florida was a last minute surprise, agreed upon very shortly before it happened.
Yes, US Tomahawk strike was rushed just a little to be timed to additionally humiliate Chinese leader. But that was a cherry on the cake. The real underlying reason was to re-create and worsen the rift between Russia and US (and also between Russia and UK and Russia and EU), never allowing it to heal.
Did Trump succeed in ‘putting China in its place?’ No, not really. Xi and China aren’t stupid and they’ve made their conclusions. All he accomplished is pushing China even closer to Russia. This, if you recall our discussions, is the opposite of the mega-goal of the Kissinger Plan.
Did the main goal of keeping and worsening the rift between Russia and US (incl. EU and UK) succeed? Only partially, and I can confidently predict that Russia/ Putin /Lavrov will make sure it doesn’t stick.
Did the additional goal of maintaining the rift between Russia and EU and imposing new sanctions succeed? Not at all. As a matter of fact, during G7 EU has said NO to more sanctions. If anything, a rift between US and European allies has solidified.

For complete picture and full predictions listen to
Russian President Vladimir Putin on US and EU accusations that Assad used chemical weapons in Idlib:
‘The words of our literary classics Ilf and Petrov are appropriate here: ‘Boring, girls.’ We’ve already seen this in 2003. First they showed fake evidence in the UN, then they attacked and destroyed Iraq.’
‘They accuse Russia of all mortal sins. That’s ok, we are used to that. But we are still hoping at one point to see a positive turnaround from the West.’
‘Let’s recall how united EU was in hating and denouncing Trump. It’s so convenient to be united against a common enemy: Syria, Russia, Trump… Now looks like he found a convenient way to join them (LR: by bombing Syria). But let me tell you, his enemies and rivals haven’t vanished. They are still there. The moment something goes wrong they will scapegoat him and make responsible for any mistakes.’
Incidentally, Putin’s predictions often (probably always) come true.
What he says resonates with my predictions made originally in Earth Shift Report 16 and later expanded in LADA RAY WEBINAR: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
Due to latest Syrian events and Trump’s actions, I feel compelled to continue this series of posts. There is much more to say re. Trump, Syria, Assad, China and Russia. Stay tuned (Hint: BIG article coming your way)!
I was actually planning to publish a completely different post. But we have breaking news that can’t wait: US attack against Syria.
Yep, hate to say I told you so since October 2016, or BEFORE US Elections, and then continued reiterating after. Should have listened to me…
CONFESSION: Granted, most of my followers and so many others who listen to me were so excited and had such high hopes for Trump that I didn’t have the heart to tell you the whole story – that most hopes, if any, will never materialize.
Even the relatively moderate amount of disclosures I made triggered a certain ‘kill the messenger’ effect. I don’t need psychic attacks, cold shoulder and disbelief thrown at me (affects me terribly as a highly advanced empath) simply because I am trying to help and enlighten people. So, I spoonfed the truth to you all. Now that most of those who had stars in their eyes have seen the reality, I’ll tell you more going forward. Some of it today and some in future webinars and books.
I received a number of comments and emails from concerned followers. Here are a few:
Nancy C/SeattleI don’t understand Trump’s authorization for US military strikes against Syria’s military base earlier today. Surely Trump knows the gas attack on civilians was not in Assad’s best interests and is clearly a false flag?
Nemo1024 Newsflash: Trump seems to have been subverted. US launched an attack on the sovereign state of Syria using a false flag pretext and before any investigations into it could be conducted. Syrian airbase that was specifically fighting isis was targeted. 3 Syrian soldiers killed, as well as 2 civilians from a nearby village. Isis used this diversion to launch an offensive on Palmyra.
Nemo1024 Important citation: https://www.rt.com/news/383837-russia-syria-flight-safety/ “Without bothering to investigate anything, the US went forward with a demonstration of force, a military confrontation with a country that is fighting international terrorism,” Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement reads. “Obviously, the cruise missile attack was prepared beforehand. Any expert can tell that the decision to strike was made in Washington before the events in Idlib, which were used as a pretext for a demonstration.”
anthonyra82Dear Lada, The latest developments in Syria are very disturbing. I knew you said Trump would disappoint a lot of people but I could not imagine he would escalate tensions with Russia like this. As always your opinion and thoughts on this are greatly appreciated.
LADA RAY SAYS:
…and the penny drops
What we see here is a logical progression of what I predicted and warned about in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER and in LADA RAY WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
Let’s recall my predictions from the end of October-beginning of November 2016 (before elections), reiterated and expanded in December 2016 (TRUMP vs CLINTON: How Will Electors Vote on Dec. 19?), and then much expanded and added to in January 2017:
1. I said that Trump will be allowed to win, but that he would make deals, and that he already began making deals with the other side before elections. In other words, he will dilute (and he has!) his pre-election promises and agenda that has allowed him to win in the first place.
2. I said that Trump won’t be assassinated, as many predicted, in December or before he takes office in January, but rather it will be judged by those who pull the strings from the shadows that it is easier to make deals with him, keep him tied up with problems and subtly direct him into a narrow tunnel, where he has no choice other than to act in a specific way.
The new popular term is ‘deep state.’ LOL, so NWO and Bilderberg aren’t fancy enough any more (of course not – after I predicted in 2014 that NWO was in the process of collapsing in ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?). The new ‘deep state’ shiny conspiracy theorist toy has been found in order to distract from the reality and truth. Therefore, I do NOT use the term ‘deep state’ as it’s another gimmick to distract people from what’s important. But whatever, call it what you want. Those same people who are now parroting about ‘deep state’ were indecently enthusiastic about Trump last year. And?..
3. I expanded my predictions about Trump in my January Webinar. I termed what would happen to him once he took office: ‘a straight jacket.’ In other words, as I explained, he would be (and he already is and has been) severely restricted and sabotaged in any of his movements. He’s in a very restricted, tightly controlled and rigid corridor out of which he cannot escape.
And so, Trump has become a regular US president, in other words, a figurehead. In reality, he NEVER TOOK POWER!
4. I further said that they would throw him a bone or two, allowing him to appear as if he won in a few cases. But he won’t accomplish much.
5. I also said that he and his family will feel under threat and simply to survive he’ll have to toe the line. Security is the primary reason why Melania and Barron Trump have refused to move into the White House – as discussed in the WEBINAR.
6. In LADA RAY WEBINAR 1 we also discussed why Trump has to appease the military, CIA and Pentagon, giving them whatever they want. And what they want is: escalation of military conflict, pushing NATO to Russian borders, war in Syria and the Middle East in general. In short, the usual suspects.
7. In LADA RAY WEBINAR 1 I also predicted exactly how long Trump will be in the office. Which won’t be long! Check it out, if you haven’t yet – it’s a must listen and must know if you want to understand the logic of the events and what will happen next.
NEW LADA RAY ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS
Of course as predicted, Trump diluted his agenda until it became practically non-existent. This is especially true for international affairs.
UNFORTUNATELY, USA AND WEST IN GENERAL ONLY UNDERSTAND THE LANGUAGE OF FORCE AND FEAR. NO AMOUNT OF GOOD WILL AND COOPERATION RUSSIA TRIED TO EXTEND TO THE WEST EVER WORKED AND IT ALWAYS BACKFIRED.
IF THEY FEAR RETRIBUTION, THEY’LL RETREAT AND PRETEND THEY WANT TO NEGOTIATE. BUT NEVER OF THEIR OWN GOOD WILL.
THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF THE YANG, AGGRESSIVE WEST. IT HAS BEEN SO FOR CENTURIES AND IT WILL BE SO UNTIL CONSCIOUSNESS ON OUR PLANET RISES SUFFICIENTLY ABOVE THE FEAR, GREED AND LOWER CALIBRATIONS.
THEREFORE, TRUMP, US, EU & OTHER AGGRESSORS WILL ONLY DO THINGS PEACEFULLY IF RUSSIA IS STRONG ENOUGH TO FORCE THEM TO.
Here we have to get back to St. Petersburg Metro Bombing. Let’s combine the very telling timing of various events:
1. Russian and Belorussian fake anti-corruption ‘protests,’ (Russian protests organized by a known US/CIA agent Navalny);
2. Suspicious timing of the near-rift between Russia and Belarus with subsequent Putin-Lukashenko meeting in St. Petersburg and announcement of a unified energy grid;
3. Same day as Putin-Lukashenko meeting: St. Petersburg Metro attack takes place;
4. False flag Idlib chemical attack and conveniently blaming it on the usual scapegoat Assad – same timing as above;
5. Immediate follow-up to Idlib chemical attack : US/UK announce a joint attack on Syria, bypassing UNSC.
6. In this regard, yet again I am so sorry that Russian star diplomat, Vitaly Churkin, has passed. He was a force in the UN to be reckoned with. This likely would not have happened on his watch, or he would’ve made it very hard for it to happen!
Here we are back to what really happened to Churkin in New York. I know many of you expected me to write about it, but I didn’t feel like delving into all that disgusting negativity. I replied to a few of my private clients, whose worried emails I received back then. To be blunt, I said that Churkin didn’t die of a heart attack – he was murdered.
7. At the same time, Trump and key members of his team, including the ones he was forced to part with, are under investigation for ‘alleged ties with Russia.’ Add to that the investigation re. ‘alleged Russian hacking and interference in elections.’ And here is that ‘Trump’s straight jacket’ I have repeatedly predicted!
As we see from the events unfolding over the course of several months, this sequence of events has been prepared for a while. It was the shadow plan, whether Trump was privy to it or not. The preparation began BEFORE he took office.
As I gently predicted, those in the shadows allowed Trump and his supporters to think they’ve won, they allowed Russia and the sane part of the world to hope it would get better, but then the situation was manipulated in such a way so it would be back on track, and even worse than before. As I predicted back in 2016!
Broken promises and shuttered dreams are always worse.
Moreover, look at the devilish masterfulness of all these decoys! It coincided with Russia and Putin being distracted with Navalny protests and then almost immediately, with St. Petersburg Metro Bombing and Russia’s mourning. This has distracted Russian leadership and civilians.
You may not know this, but at the very same time Russian RosGvardia (National Guard) installation and troops were attacked in Astrakhan’ and N. Caucasus (I believe in Chechnya). At the same time, another bomb blew up near Rostov-on-Don school (thankfully, no casualties). Also at the same time Russian policemen found 3 explosive devices camouflaged as flashlights, meant to cause damage to police. Again, thankfully they didn’t explode. All the above happened within two short days.
Additional potential terrorist acts are being discovered and wannabe terrorists are being rounded up daily. They are almost exclusively either from Ukraine or from Central Asia. There are some from N. Caucasus.
All these fake protests, Metro bombing, potential and actual attacks against Russian RosGvardia and police installations keep Russian law enforcement and military on high alert internally. No one has been paying much attention to Syria due to all these events happening simultaneously.
And while these distractions were being generated, attack against Syria was being prepared. The Idlib chemical attack false flag and Syria bombing episode happened under the cover of terror attacks and fake protests in Russia.
Just to further expand on the devilish plan of those who really pull the strings. We already know that the grand plan is to keep Russia and Ukraine at loggerheads and continue to stoke the resentments, so that Russians and Ukrainians – two parts of the same people – would always hate each other. Hence so many terror traces leading to Ukraine.
But there is an equal interest in keeping suspicion and hatred between Russians and Central Asians. Putin made huge strides in improving relations with Central Asian ex-Soviet republics. HUGE strides – it’s actually day and night compared to the ’90s and 2000s. Moreover, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan are members of Eurasian Union, and some others are in talks. In this regard, who do you think has been arrested as one of the alleged St. Pete bombers? A Kyrgyz national with Russian passport, plus several more migrants from Central Asia. It’s very easy to dupe and seduce these poor Muslim migrants into doing illegal things: promise them lots of money, threaten their families they left behind in Central Asia, brainwash them with ISIS radical ideology, etc.
But even this is not all. While all this is happening, NATO (specifically UK and Germany) are amassing troops and tanks on Russian borders. My intel from Bulgaria (a NATO member, where peaceful people are very worried about the developments) says that up to 750,000 NATO troops and thousands of tanks have amassed near Russian borders!
At the same time, US is pushing NATO to grant Ukraine a ‘most favored nation outside NATO’ status. The next step is for NATO troops to invade Ukraine.
So much for the ‘beautiful’ dream of Trump… THEY YET AGAIN WANT TO START WWIII!
And only Russia, as always, stands in the way of the global catastrophe.

This is a follow-up to Lada Ray’s latest article Why St. Petersburg Metro Bombing Coincided with Putin – Lukashenko St. Pete Talks.
In it we discussed the St. Petersburg bombing, how it’s linked to the preceding ‘anti-corruption’ protests in Russia and Belarus, Dmitry Medvedev, Lukashenko’s blunders, and Putin-Lukashenko meeting in St. Pete.
Today, FT contributor Nemo (Stanislav Sokolov) is offering us a very telling glimpse into what was happening in Russia during the ’90s, before Putin came to power. This is a must know in order to put contemporary events into proper perspective.
Tomorrow’ I’ll offer you a third article of this cycle, in which I’ll tell you more about Russian anti-corruption protests and the truth behind them!
After the events in Moscow, when kids were abused by the “opposition” and the overall anti-Russian/anti-Putin rhetoric, I got angry – it hit too close to home. I published now a new article: The ”Wild 90s” in Russia, as reflected in people’s memory. Part 2.
Which is part my take on the events, part my own recollection from the 90s, and part translations of people’s testimonials. You are welcome to use the materials in it if you are going to write an article about the recent unrest in Belorussia and Russia.
All the best,
With his kind permission, I am offering you Stanislav Sokolov’s article about Russia’s Wild ’90s, and how Vladimir Putin changed that!
Two years ago I published an article The ”Wild 90s” in Russia, as reflected in people’s memory, where I translated one testimonial of a survivor of the Yeltsin’s Wild 90’s in Russia. Such survivors are many, yet many more perished – in Russia more people died during Yeltsin than during WWII. In that article I also detailed Yeltsin’s coup d’etat of November 1993.
Now, a few days ago, the ignominious Navalny organised an “anti-corruption” rally in Moscow and several of Russia’s cities. I am not going to go into the details of how only 8000 people out of the 12 million population of Moscow was seen at this colour revolution attempt. I will not go into details of how Navalny turned to the political paedophilia, luring school-aged kids onto the streets with the promise of paying them €10000 if they manage to get arrested, and how the “political speeches” of said kids said that they want to buy sneakers. The use of kids seems to be in the instruction book of any colour revolt worth its name (see “protests” against Charles de Gaulle). I will not go into the details of how Navalny – a jobless man – manages to own expensive car, finance organisation of revolts and produce Hollywood-class films, and why this corruption fighter has several criminal corruption cases over him regarding illegal forest deals.
What I want to go into detail about, is the main chant of Navalny and co., of all the anti-Russian, Russophobic traitors organising such revolts: “Putin must go”. That’s all of their agenda. They say absolutely nothing about how Russia should be governed or about the future. At best they position themselves as the next presidents and say a few abstract words about how there’ll be no corruption and everyone will be equal. Aha! The same manifestos were proclaimed in 1917. And in 1991.
And this is what I am coming towards. All the Navalny-class “liberals” are aiming to bring Russia to the condition of the Yeltsin’s 1993-1999 era. The Desolation of Yeltsin as I like to call it, referring to the Desolation of Smaug.
By 1999 the “progress and democracy” in Russia reached such levels that the population was dying out from hunger, military and statehood all but destroyed. Foreign NATO-sponsored Islamic insurgency in Chechenia was at its peak. Here is a link to an article from Lenta.ru from 29.09.1999 with the telling title “Russia begs USA for a little more food”. Sad and detrimental, yet it fully reflects the reality of those days.
My family and I were touched by those events before we emigrated in 1993. I remember well how I had to stand at the entrance to a market, selling toys, books, plastic bags (yes, the Western plastic bags, if you could get your hands on them, were worth a few kopeks), various small items from home – anything, just to get some money so as to buy food and set something aside for the vague plans for the future. We were a middle-class family, my grandfather forked in the 50s at the Far East, where the Soviet government paid the so-called “Northern money”, so were well-off, until 1992, when the whole country and its population got robbed over night. By the likes of Berezovskij, Yeltsin, Kuchma, Nemtsov, Khodorkovskij, Navalny, Kudrin, Yavlinskij and other “communists” cum “oligarchs” and “democrats”.
The upper right corner in the image below illustrates what it was like from my point of view, selling your last things.
Do you remember the 90s? All of the “civilised West” are our friends, while USA is the best pal.
Below I want to translate testimonials from several people of that time, as they recall it now, warning the youth of today not to repeat the same naïve mistake as the one that brought chaos on their own heads.
The first collection of testimonials starts as an open, public domain letter, titled “Anyone, who remembers well what happened in the 90s, should be grateful to this man…”, and it originally appeared at LiveJournal here.
I turned 17 in 1991.
All the trash that is now criticizing Putin was in power back then.
I don’t remember anything good of what they did. I remember how they destroyed my country, I remember how people were not paid wages for years, how a professor of nuclear physics worked with me and cleaned animal skins with a scythe, how my mother, having worked for 23 years as a head nurse of the paediatric intensive care unit and revived many a dozen children, became a “shuttle trader”. (Translator note for the Westerners: people went to China or West and bought some cheap goods, smuggled them and tried to make a living reselling)
I remember the gangs of bastards, collecting tributes, even from old ladies selling sunflower seeds. (Translator note: market gangs, the utmost dregs of society. Berezovskij came from that “environments”.) I remember how kidnapping for ransom in my city of Nalchik was turned into an industry, and how the filth that did that was considered respectable people.
I remember how happily Americans were let into the most secret military facilities, how for their sake aircraft, missiles, submarines and other achievements of my homeland were cut to pieces.
I remember the poor old people begging. I remember the downtrodden Afghan war veterans, who were mutilated in battles, served the orders of their Motherland, are now spat upon by today’s “liberasts” (Translator note: common in today’s Russia folk by-name, combining the words for “liberal” and “homosexual”).
Shall I continue???
I also remember how, two weeks after Putin came to power, the kidnappings stopped. I remember how the Chechens, whom I personally always respected, from the enemies of Russia were reborn into her faithful warriors.
I see how my country began again to build gas pipelines, aircraft, ships and so on. I see how my sons, like I in my childhood, become proud of their country. Everything is relative.
Hence is the question: How can “liberasts”, who sold their Homeland, have the audaciousness to blather all sorts of nonsense about Putin? What have they left after themselves to him, to bark that “Putin ruined” something?
It is, first and foremost, their fault in what is going on in Ukraine today, it is they, who have created this situation in 1991. Nemtsov and his ilk… there must be no monuments to them, least of all in the centre of Moscow. (Translator note: “Liberals” push for that after the Western sacrificial murder of Nemtsov in Moscow). They need to be burned and the ashes scattered to the wind.
Appeal to the young people: do NOT believe the “liberatst”, don’t look up at the “stars” (what a retarded term), like Ksenia Sobchak, do not take the example from prostitutes and bastards. They are all lying.
We are the greatest country in the world. Ask how many achievements ranging from military exploits and to science, sports, and everything else, belongs to our compatriots.
Do not let those, whom we taught to wash, teach us culture. (Translator note to the Westerners: Russian Anna Yaroslavna (born in 1024), when she became the Queen of France, brought with her the tradition of frequent washing – banja, which is common in Russia, yet was viewed as strange in the then W.Europe., as well as introducing at the French Court the custom of eating with silverware, of reading, and many other civilisational traits.)
Don’t let those who begot fascism, the Inquisition, and other atrocities, teach us the love of mankind. Those who marry perverts in the Churches, teach us human values.
We are Russia, and our path is different from theirs.”

Comments from the post with additional testimonials:
Tatiana Potapova: “I, too, remember the gangs of bastards who held the markets in fear. Snickering masters of life. And I also remember homeless children, lousy, dirty, hungry, who raided the trading rows of the markets and would grab from the shelves anything edible. I pushed food into their hands. There were so many of them! The officials were not interested in their fate. Where they lived? If they had parents? Nobody picked them off the streets and into boarding schools for approximately ten years. Since Putin came to power, children were rounded up and sent to the boarding schools. Now, those officials who ruthlessly robbed the people and as a result small children ended up on the street, hungry, unwashed, not having seen any kindergartens or schools… now these officials hate Putin and call him a thief… They project their sin onto Putin. Probably because they can get neither sleep nor rest.”
Olga Malinova: “I remember the 90s. My brother and I wanted to eat one day, went to the kitchen, found only the millet and vegetable oil. We pulled our last few rubles, and spent them on a loaf of bread.”
Valery Vishnyakov: “We borrowed money from the neighbours for a half of a black bread. And our father was an oil industry worker. He was just not paid the money. I used to give my food to the younger brother. Parents still do not know about that… Give us back Stalin. The iron curtain. The Soviet Union…”
Liliya Karimova: “I Remember how bad it was. I went to the post office for aid money, but the money were not transferred for more than six months. Used to come home crying not knowing what to cook, it was good that the collective farm gave grain that we would bring to the mill – at least we got bread, and had our own cow, otherwise I would have died of hunger. Writing this now and crying.”
Maria Glova: “I was unable to go after the school to Institute, as parents – doctors – had their wages delayed and they were afraid that I would not be able to find food in another city. In those days we lived off the garden, planted potatoes, ploughed field 5 days in a week and spent 2 days in the garden.”
Eketerina Yasakova: “And I remember only too well the 90s. Terrible years. My children then were just toddlers”
The second testimonial article is titled “The answer to those, who say they live badly in Putin’s Russia”. This material is much more down to earth, gritty and grim, like the years it describes.
Subtext: “How I was surviving in the ’90s, in Russia without Putin”
A young man in his 20s wrote to me from his iPhone from Russia about how his life sucks “under Putin”. I briefly described to him how I lived without Putin in the late 90s.
I will write this again, maybe it will come in handy to someone from Ukraine.
Woke up, thank God that I’m alive. Had breakfast, tea with jam from my grandmother. That’s all the food. There is nothing more to eat.
Later in the morning.
There is no work, the factory was bankrupted by Nemtsovs-Kasyanov and other f*ing privatizers, nothing to do… But the tea, even with jam is not food. It is necessary to find food. Mobiles did not yet exist, so I go to a friend who is in the same position, but worse, because he has a wife and a son. What are we going to do, where to look for food? Decided to go fishing.
Morning, closer to dinner.
Threw in the net from a boat probably constructed during Lenin’s time. Waited. While waiting, caught some frogs, made a campfire, roasted frog legs, ate them. Wanted to smoke, but have no money… walked down the street, collecting the “butts”, nearby others like us harvested, started swearing at us, saying that’s not our territory. We calm them down. Will not go into details of how… you survive however you can.
Rummaged through all of the waste dumps already, not a single thread of metal left. (Translator’s note: People scavenged any metal and sold it to collectors. Pipes, machinery, anything got melted. The same process is going in Ukraine now. If anyone wants a glorified fictitious parallel, think Rey from Star Wars, The Force Awakens.) Telling my friend – let’s go to the village nearby. We went. Knocked at the first house. Explained why we came to a grandmother, age 80. We collect metal, if you have any, we can help to dig up the garden lot as the payment of it… Grandmother asked to plough up 3 acres, flooded in the spring. We did that. Plus I, as a radio hobbyist, repaired antenna on her TV. She gave us 8 kilogrammes of aluminium pans, and even money!!!
For the money we immediately bought a pack of cigarettes and 2 Snickers. We ate the Snickers right away, to at least have some strength, had a smoke and went to deliver metal to the collectors. Delivered, got a few kopecks… But at least that’s something. Went to the nets.
Afternoon snack time.
Came to nets, and there see some blokes pulling them out and taking our fish. Without hesitation, we beat them up very very seriously, although we knew that they are in the same situation as us. But to steal at the time of hunger from your own people is worse than being a liberal! Took out fish and went home.
Gave part of the fish to the wives, carried the other part to the market. Sold for a penny, but at least that’s something. Bought pasta and sugar. Brought that home. Bought for the remaining money 0.5l of homebrew from a local hag.
Late in the evening.
Sitting at the porch, drinking, smoking and looking to a brighter future. A radio of Chinese make says: An unknown to anyone Vladimir Putin may possibly become a temporary figure after the ailing Boris Yeltsin…
So, young people of 20-30 years. If your life is shitty in Russia, under Putin, look at Ukraine now, or at my personal experience of survival in the ’90s. Although, all the same, you’ll learn nothing.
Sincerely, Pavel Smirnov.
Putin’s promise in 2000: “I shall be with the Army, I shall be with the Fleet, I shall be with the people. And together we shall rebuild the Army, the Fleet and the Country.” And he didn’t lie. Thank you, Vladimir Vladimirovich.
