Qui Bono from the Downing of Russian Hero Pilot in Syria? Turkish and Russian Military Intelligence Work Together…
The body of the squadron leader who heroically perished near Idlib in Syria, was returned to Russia. The operation was conducted by Russian and Turkish military intelligence officers. Roman Filipov will be buried in his native city of Voronezh on February 8. He was awarded posthumously the title of Hero of Russia. The decree was signed by the President.
How Major Roman Filipov died – terrorists who attacked him caught it on camera. Not seeing a way out and heavily wounded, he pulled the grenade pin, taking with him, per reports, two of his attackers. His last words heard in Russian in the video below have become legendary and they can be translated as #thisisfortheguys :
The immediate Russian retaliation strikes followed, per reports killing at least 50 militants.
I want to draw your attention to the fact that this specific provocation was timed to take place as the major Syria reconciliation forum (began Jan 29) drew to a close in Sochi. Russia hosted hundreds of opposition and militant groups and political factions leaders, as well as the Syrian government delegation, as well as intermediaries and politicians from UN, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan and more. The Sochi meeting devised an initial roadmap towards political dialog in Syria. The Sochi Syria forum was opened by Sergey Lavrov, who read Putin’s address.
Another reason for this provocation is to try to break up the budding alliance in the Middle East and Syria between Russia, Iran and Turkey.
It’s easy to see who benefits and who doesn’t.

Putin Makes Surprise Visit to Syria in the Company of Su-30 Jets to Declare Victory and the End of Op
Russian President Vladimir Putin paid surprise visit to Khmeimim Airbase in Syria’s Latakia province on Monday, December 11. As he prepared to land, he was met by an escort of Su-30SM fighter jets.
During this unannounced visit Putin met with Syrian president Assad and made an important announcement regarding partial withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria following the defeat of ISIS. Putin added that if terrorists reappeared in Syria, Russian troops would be back.
Russia’s Enormous Victory & End of ISIS
Russian Syria op is one of the most successful military ops of all time. As a result of Russian BKC (Russian joint military-space forces) involvement along with Syrian ground troops, ISIS has been squeezed out of all cities in Syria, leaving only some straggling groups in the country, with which Syrian army is still dealing on the ground. Syrian government today controls most of the country’s territory. When Russia got involved in Syria 2 years ago, Assad and Syrian army controlled 14% of the country’s territory, rebels were located as close as 8 kilometers from Assad’s palace, Syrian army was on its last legs with deserters leaving in droves. It was expected that any day Assad would lose power and Syria would be torn to pieces by warring factions and foreign powers.
The task the Russian Army had in Syria seemed insurmountable and extremely complex. Not only it was of a military nature, but it was diplomatic, moderating and peacemaking as well.
During the past 2 years of Syrian involvement, in military operations Russia hasn’t lost a single jet, except the Turkish provocation with the downing of the Russian Su. One single flying regiment took part in operations; overall Russian troops in Syria numbered no more than 4-5 thousand. This relatively small number of troops managed to make 30,000 flights and destroy most of the ISIS top commanders, and most of the Islamic State terrorists’ infrastructure, including arms depots, training camps, factories, oil transports and money laundering rings. Estimated combined ISIS losses are 32,000 troops. Russian instructors re-trained and turned around the demoralized Syrian army in such a way that it began winning. The most important Syrian army operations were developed and executed under the command of Russian higher officers. The result of such operations was the liberation of all major Syrian cities, securing of oil fields and the majority of the country’s territory.
The political, diplomatic and peacemaking results have been equally impressive. Only Russia managed to sit down at one table the seemingly irreconcilable enemies, including Iran, Turkey, Syrian government and opposition/ rebels/ various factions. Political process is taking place and elections are coming, which was unimaginable just recently. Syria today is day and night compared to what it was just two years ago.
All this is especially impressive if you compare it to the staggering fiasco of the US/EU/NATO’s involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Syria. Incidentally, it has been brought to my attention that following Russia’s astounding victory in Syria, US and France are trying to steal this victory, declaring it theirs and ignoring the reality. This is also nothing new — remember WWI and WWII and the re-writing of history!
For more on Russian Army read Poll: Russians Trust Most Russian Army, Putin and FSB, and distrust…
Of course, this is far from being the end. The new strategy for securing the rest of the country, maintaining peace and squeezing US out of Syria has to be implemented, political changes have to take place. But the active military phase is over.
After the surprise Syria stop-over, where he thanked the troops, met with Assad and declared the end of Syria op, Putin in the same day visited Egypt and Turkey.
This whole 1-day, 3-country Middle East turbo-tour is the continuation of Putin’s restructuring and rebalancing of the Middle East, as discussed in my recent interview A New Tsar Arrived. But the timing is also such that this Middle East tour serves as Putin and Russia’s response to Trump’s decision to consider Jerusalem the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem.
Why did Trump make such announcement right before Holidays? It has already met with much condemnation around the world and generated a new wave of violence and anti-US hatred. There are calls for the 3rd Intifada (Palestinian resistance war against Israel). This announcement is also likely to create new waves of terror attacks in US, Israel and other countries. Just yesterday we had terror attack attempt at the Bus Terminal in Manhattan, and more are expected during Christmas/New Year. Politicians and lay people alike have dubbed Trump’s decision ‘irresponsible and short-sighted.’
The reason Trump saw fit to make such an announcement is very simple and in line with my original predictions from the Trump ESR16 and ESW1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM. Trump is in a ‘straitjacket’ and in a fight for survival, being criticized and threatened by various forces. This is by no means a justification of his actions, but merely a reminder that I predicted this since 2016, before the US election outcome was even known.
Trump is trying to avoid impeachment with all his might. In this survival mode he, in a typical American fashion, doesn’t care how his words or actions will impact the world. He is simply thinking about himself. If he were a private citizen, that might be at least understandable, if not forgivable. But it doesn’t work at all if one calls himself a US president.
The Israeli/ Jewish lobby in the US is one of the most powerful. Therefore, for Trump it is crucial to have it in his corner. It is as crucial as having Pentagon and US army in his corner, or at least neutral so they wouldn’t support his impeachment. To appease Pentagon/US army Trump does constant saber-rattling against N. Korea, threatening to begin a nuclear war. If it’s not N. Korea, it is Iran, Syria, or whatever enemy is next in line.
And to appease the Jewish/Israel lobby Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. All very logical actions from his standpoint — and the hell with the rest of the world. This yet again demonstrates how unfit the USA, this ‘exceptional nation’ and ‘sole super-power,’ is for the role of the global leader.
This is where Russia the Great Balancer comes in. Putin’s announcement of Russian troops withdrawal from Syria stands in stark contrast to Trump/USA’s bullying position.
By contrast with Trump, Putin announced during meetings with Egypt’s el-Sisi and Turkey’s Erdogan that only the joint negotiations between Israel and Palestine should decide the status of Jerusalem. This measured and reasonable position yet again shows who the true world leader really is; who brings peace to the Middle East, and who provokes wars.
Putin is confirming what I often talk about: Russia is the unifying, balancing and pacifying force in the Middle East and globally. This role of Russia the Great Balancer will continue intensifying during the ongoing EARTH SHIFT.
We talk about this at length in recent URGENT NEW INTERVIEW! A New Tsar Arrived: How Putin is Squeezing US out of NEW Middle East.
I discussed in detail the situation in the Middle East, Syria, Turkey, Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and more in these Earth Shift Reports: ESR5, ESR7 & ESR13.

Another recent interview: The Putin Enigma and The Coming Western Perestroika
Iran doesn’t sleep, it pays attention. Another ugly wave of global arms race is afoot. But what can countries do when they are threatened by well-known global super-bullies?
From RT: The Iranian navy has unveiled a surface-to-surface missile-launching warship, dubbed “Separ,” in the northern port of Anzali on Tuesday. Separ, Farsi for ‘shield,’ is an Iranian-made Kaman/Sina class missile boat that is equipped with 4 C802 SSM anti-ship missiles, 1 Fajr-27 76 mm dual-purpose gun and one 40 mm anti-aircraft gun.
Lada Ray on “The Plane Truth” 11-27-17… “URGENT NEW INTERVIEW! A New Tsar Arrived: How Putin is Squeezing US out of NEW Middle East”
I’m listening to this video now, and am finding the information from Lada to be very enlightening. Particularly what “stood out” was (at approx. 12 minutes) the significance of the meeting of the three leaders of Russia, Iran, and Turkey. There is a lot of material here, and many may find it illuminating.
Also I saw a short video from Inessa S that goes along with this, which I post separately (Kp blog post).
“…all last week I was observing a truly monumental Earth Shift happening in the Middle East, under Putin’s and Russia’s tutelage and with Russia’s invaluable help. And I bet many in the West have missed it entirely… with rare internal Russian intel, breaking news and things you are guaranteed to never hear in the West, complete with my geopolitical analysis and predictions.

At the same time, as the interview recorded and was being released, all last week I was observing a truly monumental Earth Shift happening in the Middle East, under Putin’s and Russia’s tutelage and with Russia’s invaluable help. And I bet many in the West have missed it entirely.
The news are so huge that we decided to record a full follow-up show on it! This follow-up show is shorter than usual and runs at just over an hour. We jam-packed it with rare internal Russian intel, breaking news and things you are guaranteed to never hear in the West, complete with my geopolitical analysis and predictions. We talk about Putin-Asad secret meeting in Sochi and the announcement of a major shift in Syria ops; The Russia-Turkey-Iran Sochi summit, already dubbed the new ‘Yalta Conference,’ where the map and the future of the Middle East are being decided; Putin’s calls to Trump, Netanyahu, Saudi, Qatar and Egypt leaders; the unheard of in its boldness follow-up conference of the various warring Syrian factions, also held in Sochi; the fact that EU and US were completely bypassed, and much more! Just wait till you hear all the juicy details!
I even managed to pack into this interview the somewhat related news of the Czech and Slovakian (not to be confused with Slovenia — a separate Slavic state located in the northern Balkans) rebellion against EU anti-Russian sanctions and what will come out of it. This piece about some Eastern Europeans, such as Czechia/Slovakia, apparently having learned their lessons resonates with my recent important article: Secret Order to Destroy Slavs and Re-Write their Genetic Code! 3 Ingredients of Color Revolution (New Theory)!

How Did Outnumbered Russian Military Police Unit Repel Al-Nusra Ambush in Idlib, Syria? Plus, Putin’s Middle East Revelations
Just to revisit the infamous recent provocation by the USA’s pocket terrorists against Russia in Syria. This brings back memories of the 1980s Afghanistan… And it also brings the memories of WWII, WWI and the provocation that were the two 1917 Russian revolutions and following 1918-20 Civil War.
Those far away memories are not mine, but generations before me — those who chose to remember the truth. It is disturbing how easily humans in general choose to forget and to subscribe to the official view of history and reality, no matter how twisted and how untruthful.
But this time it’s different, Russia is very different, and Putin is far from Gorby, Yeltsin or Tsar Nicholas II. (You can learn all this, and much, much more in THE PUTIN ENIGMA.)
This is a compilation of short videos, with Eng Subs, describing the event, as well as Russia’s true role and true victories in Syria, which are silenced in the West. The compilation includes Putin’s prophetic words about Syria and the Middle East.

Dear friends, if you read my blog you know that since late October I worked very hard and practically by myself on EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA. To add insult to injury, my internet went poof just around the time I was readying to finalize and release THE PUTIN ENIGMA. I still don’t have the internet at home, which means I have to find a cafe or library to work in, which is, needless to say, very inconvenient.
I still released EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6 on time, as promised!
Just be aware that my internet connection is spotty at the moment. I get quite a bit of correspondence from you, and I try to address it all as soon as practical. I am promised the new internet connection in a day or two, so it should get back to normal by Wednesday.

EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOD 8 GLOBAL PREDICTIONS
The calibrations for THE PUTIN ENIGMA — and more — coming! Stay tuned!
I just thought this short video demonstrated the true character of the men in it. Putin is presented with a gift of a rare breed of dogs from Turkmenistan. Watch how Turkmenistan president handles the poor puppy by the scruff of his neck, showcasing him to cameras like a trophy.
Then watch as Putin rushes to ‘save’ the puppy from an impending strangulation. Watch how Putin takes the puppy gently from the Turkmenistan president, hugs him, and gives him a kiss, before gently setting him down. For Putin, dogs are not trophies, but friends.
Putin’s new puppy’s name is Verniy, which translates as ‘Faithful.’ It is said that this breed of dogs grows very large and makes especially faithful companions.
To be sure, Turkmenistan president meant well, and this gift is clearly a sign of special closeness and benevolence. Putin continues making huge strides in both Middle East and Central Asia. More on that in upcoming articles!
Just couldn’t resist posting this for desert! Meanwhile the anti-Putin / anti-Russia hysteria in the US continues, taking on the most bizzarre forms…

I just couldn’t resist posting this hilarious video of Erdogan repeatedly falling asleep during Ukraine’s Poroshenko’s talk. Frankly, I’ve never seen anything like it during talks between leaders of 2 countries.
Not only Erdogan isn’t taking this puppet seriously. Poroshenko’s hanging by the thread inside Ukraine, performing a balancing act to stay alive. For a fake photo-op with Trump, Poroshenko has to pay Washington lobbyists the millions Ukraine doesn’t have. Most importantly, there is trouble brewing in the EU for Ukraine — stay tuned for my new intel!
For now everyone’s keeping Poroshenko around as a useful and predictable idiot. But only for now…
Ukraine, ruled by the Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, has hit its final dead end, and signs are many. There is a global eerie pause in regards to Ukraine… Do you feel it? The West doesn’t know what else to do with it, and Russia is waiting until the West does decide that enough is enough, and drops this suitcase without a handle. But not only Russia is waiting for that — more in my upcoming post.
Remember my 2014 – 2016 predictions about Ukraine? Watch the next 12-16 months, and let’s see together how they materialize! To assist you in this, I’ve made the Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine free to FT followers, including my main 2014-16 Ukraine predictions and timelines. Read it by following the link below.

In WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOR 8 PREDICTIONS I was asked whether there will be a defining event during this GREAT EARTH SHIFT, and when. I replied that we are in it — inside THE event, that is. Multi-dimensionally, the Earth Shift isn’t an event, or a series of events, as we are led to believe by the sensationalist 3D MSM, and the so-called alternative press. It is a continuing PROCESS, resulting in a major change. Every country and every individual will continue experiencing this process in their own way, but make no mistake: we all experience it. The difference is those who are conscious, awake and understand my Earth Shift and Multi-Dimensional theories, will know that a crucial event is coming because they have been tuned into the process of the change from the start. Those who are ignorant and asleep will perceive the resulting event as a shocking catastrophe they never saw coming.
In the same WEBINAR 4 I predicted that a wave of secession movements, and conversely, unionist movements, will continue and intensify, and borders of a number of countries will change in the next 5 to 20 years. Some international clubs, country blocks and alliances will disappear or will have to go through a complete overhaul, while some new alliances and new geopolitical affinity groups will either appear or be reborn. They will gain momentum and expand.
It was also explained in WEBINAR 4 that violence, terrorism, the rise of the military and disproportioned use of police force are all trademarks of Period 8. They will continue and intensify till this Period runs its course. Much more was explained in previous Webinar 2 and Webinar 3.
For an example of terrorism and senseless violence look at the latest terrorist attack in Las Vegas, the largest ever such attack on US soil.
Catalonia Independence Referendum: Lada Ray’s Multi-Dimensional Q&A
(with Crimea, Scotland, Kurdistan referendum parallels)
Why Catalans voted 90%+ in favor of seceding?
The results of the Catalan Independence Referendum are as follows:
|Date||1 October 2017|
Per Catalan authorities, the crackdown and violent actions of Spanish police resulted in 700,000+ votes stolen. Guardia Civil was seen in many cases violently yanking ballot boxes full of votes out of the hands of people who tried to protect them. In other cases documented by international observers, the polling stations were simply blocked by Spanish police and people were unable to vote. The turnout would have been greater if such actions didn’t occur and the free vote did take place.
It was anticipated that the referendum result would be in favor of the Catalan independence. However, such high percentage of favorable votes surprised most. Spanish government caused the vote for independence to skyrocket as a protest against their heavy-handed approach. The more pressure Madrid put on Barcelona, the more the undecided Catalans leaned towards independence.
The result of the Catalan referendum compares to the Crimea and Donbass referendum results, where on average 90%-95% voted to secede from Ukraine. Similar results were achieved in 2006 in Pridnestrovie (95% voted to re-unite with Russia, after prior secession from Moldova) and in Gagauzia autonomy (in 2014 over 90% Gagauzs voted to secede from Moldova IF Moldova stopped being a sovereign state and was absorbed by Romania).
The result of the Catalan referendum is binding, which means Catalonia should begin making steps towards secession from Spain. But not so fast. It won’t be so simple…
I have discussed my prediction on what will happen after Catalan referendum, how it will evolve and how the EU and the world would be influenced by this event, in WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE VIDEO Q&A.
Why was there so much violence displayed by Spanish police / Guardia Civil? And related question: why was Madrid government so callous and unyielding about the referendum?
Ruptly video from Barcelona during Catalan Referendum Oct 1, 2017 – violent police actions (graphic!):
As explained in WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOR 8 PREDICTIONS, the government interference and armed violence is one of the traits of Period 8. Therefore, we have to expect continued, and in some cases (sorry to say), escalating violence in those countries that chose a violent way.
The Great Earth Shift is changing much of what we used to perceive as a given. Some countries and some governments simply can’t cope with the fast change.
The Spanish Rajoy government is a typical neo-liberal globalist entity. When it has perceived that the familiar and comfortable structures around it have begun disintegrating, the thin surface veneer of ‘democracy’ has fallen off and it lashed out in the most ungracious way.
During this Earth Shift we will continue observing how certain globalist entities and certain ‘leaders’ start losing it, unable to cope with the changes, which they, in their warped worldview, didn’t see coming. Others will forget about the pretend ‘democracy’ they supposedly were a part of, and will tighten their grip on power over their population.
The clearest example of being unable to cope with changes and losing it, with subsequent tightened grip on power without any consideration for the rights nor lives of the people, is Ukraine, including Ukraine’s 2014 coup and subsequent ukro-nazi Kiev junta in power, and an all-out war against the people of Donbass.
Why wasn’t there violence during Scottish referendum?
But what about the truly democratic and developed Western European countries, you may ask. What about UK’s amicable behavior during Scottish independence referendum? After all, London hasn’t lashed out at Scotland; no national guard nor violence was observed.
First, let me just say that London’s measured behavior during Scottish referendum was admirable and mature and it stood in stark contrast to the behavior of Kiev, Madrid or Ankara in similar circumstances. However, that said, there is a very good reason for that — make it three reasons!
1. UK, in its many years of experience of manipulating the world into wars, without actually truly participating in them, and many years of colonizing other countries where regimes were installed and quietly manipulated behind the scenes, has developed a very good system of quiet persuasion and geopolitical/economic manipulation. They are a lot more adept at how to do it behind the scenes and without violence.
2. Between us, I seriously believe that London knew the Scottish independence bid would fail, and therefore, they really could afford to play it cool. They knew the vote would be divided. All that was needed to be done was to apply some very subtle pressure here and there.
Catalonia is completely different that way. It was clear that the majority would vote for secession, and Spanish government simply saw no way of persuading Catalans otherwise. As a consequence, they simply lost it.
3. After the Catalan vote, there is renewed talk of a new Scottish independence referendum. Even if it succeeds, UK will continue trying to subtly delay and influence the situation in such a way as to make the secession a very remote prospect, or to make it legitimate on paper only. Just observe what is happening with Brexit — how seemingly slow it is, and who knows if it really is happening or not. Exactly as I predicted in Special Predictions Video ESR 12 THE FUTURE OF THE EU (BREXIT, TTIP/TPP & EU revolts).
That said, London may lose it too, should Scotland challenge it too openly. So far it’s not happening, and I don’t see it as high probability as Scottish politicians are treading very softly. For the sake of all UK citizens, I hope Ukraine and Catalonia lessons have been learned and violence can be avoided.
I can tell you that the vast majority of Russians, looking across the border and observing Ukraine madness, have determined that they choose the opposite: peace, unity and stability.
Another interesting detail is that Scotland is also quietly negotiating with the EU to be accepted as a member instead of UK, which technically could favor the secession vote. This is yet another reason my prediction from ESR12 THE FUTURE OF THE EU that it will take years for Brexit to take place, if at all, is being confirmed. London will attempt to delay its rift with EU in order to keep Scotland on board.
Why Spanish government refuses to recognize the Catalan referendum
The Spanish government can’t possibly recognize the Catalan vote. It would mean losing the richest and best-to-do part of the country, 20-25% of Spanish economy, 1/3 of all foreign investments and 1/3 of all exports.
Catalans believe they are getting an unfair shake when they get less back from Madrid than they contribute to the country’s economy. Without Barcelona, Spain will simply become a much diminished and significantly poorer state.
Meanwhile, economically speaking, Catalonia may also lose out from independence. EU already warned that independent Catalonia may not be accepted as a separate member of the EU, since Spain — an EU member — would never agree to that. Without this, Catalonia won’t enjoy free trade perks other EU members do, thus increasing the cost of exports.
But not all is measured in terms of money and economy. As I predicted since 2014, in Period 8 and during the Great Earth Shift, economy is secondary to geopolitics and social change.
As discussed in WEBINAR 4, this is the time of secessions, referendums and changing borders. Period 8 and the Earth Shift will see to it: everything not fastened well will be swept away, anything that’s rotting will be demolished, and new, better, stronger and healthier structures will emerge.
A few facts: Catalonia was the first to ban the cruel and inhumane bull fights, while the rest of Spain is lagging. Spain is a monarchy, while Catalans are much more progressive and they want to be a republic. Catalans have a history of standing up against regimes. During the 1930s Spanish Civil War Barcelona was the last hold-out of the Spanish Republic, while the rest of Spain succumbed to Franco.
Why did local police and firemen try to protect the voters?
When local Catalan police and firemen realized that Spanish Guardia Civil was attacking people and not letting them cast their vote, many of them stood with their people, protecting them from the armed Spanish police. As a result some of the local police and firemen were injured, others were seen on camera conflicted, crying and hiding their faces while Catalans lauded and thanked them.
This is understandable. These civil servants gave an oath to the Madrid government, however their conscience didn’t allow them to stand idle when civilians were being attacked and prevented from casting their democratic vote. For many of them it was a huge emotional drama and a huge inner conflict.
In Catalonia we just saw a demo of a rift between two sides of the armed forces, civil servants and police, which we may observe in other countries as well as the Earth Shift unfolds. Some local civil servants may choose to defend the population from central government’s aggression, therefore fulfilling their true duty, while others will choose to obey undemocratic orders and attack unarmed civilians. This rift is bound to occur in those countries that have chosen a violent way.
Mass celebrations in Barcelona, following referendum:
Striking parallels with Crimea, Donbass and Ukraine
We have seen this unfold in Ukraine since 2014 in the most striking manner. In the case of Ukraine the divisions were very clear from the start. Many of those in the armed forces and police who were against the junta resigned or took the side of the people. Many had been killed as a result. Some defected and joined Donbass self-defence.
Crimea demonstrated an even more decisive and striking division. Out of 20,000 Ukrainian troops stationed on the Crimean peninsula as of March 2014, only 10% or 2,000 chose to move back to Ukraine after Crimean independence referendum, followed by Crimea re-joining Russia. The rest chose to join the Russian Army and Navy and stay in Crimea, demonstrating very clearly where their allegiances really were. That included the supreme commander of the Ukraine Navy and almost all higher officers. Moreover, some of those who initially moved back to Ukraine with their families, want to return to Crimea.
Of course, the Crimean situation is absolutely unique in world history: during the entire referendum and the passage of control over to Russia there was no violence and no fire was exchanged between two armies. All Ukrainian military who wanted to move back to Ukraine were given free passage, and even allowed to take with them their tanks, ships and jets. In truth, Russians simply didn’t want all that junk. 😉
Notably, there were only two shots fired, which killed one person on the Ukraine army side and a Cossack volunteer on the Russian side. The shots were fired by a sniper, who, per color revolution manual, was attempting to create violence and mutual blame between sides. That attempt failed as the peaceful referendum and orderly withdrawal of Ukraine troops continued.
In Barcelona we saw what would have happen in Crimea, if Russian Army and Navy didn’t ensure that the democratic right of citizens to cast their vote was protected. But multiply that by thousands. There are reports that in Catalonia 2 or 3 people died, and over 840 were injured as a result of Guardia Civil crackdown. In Crimea the result would have been incomparably more devastating, if Russia didn’t step in on time. We are talking thousands of deaths — and that’s before Kiev would have begun shelling civilians from heavy artillery. The war against Donbass civilians is proving what Kiev junta is capable of.
The Kurdish referendum is yet another example of the same. There are at least 40 million Kurds in the Middle East. They are divided between 4 countries and are considered the largest ethnicity without a country on the planet.
As expected, during the September 25, 2017 referendum the vast majority of Kurds voted for independence from Iraq. However, practically speaking this is impossible, short of an all-out civil war. At this time, no great powers are interested in a new civil war in Iraq. What is likely to happen is that Kurds in all four countries will use the results of the referendum to bargain for better deals with respective central governments. Syria’s Assad, with the urging by Russia, already announced that he would be willing to grant Syrian Kurds a broad autonomy. Turkish Erdogan is so far unyielding. Iraq government will definitely be negotiating with the Kurds. As a result, Kurds will live in a de-facto separate state, keeping all or most their oil profits, but within Iraq. This will be the case for at least several more years. After that, more changes are coming and the world map will be very different from what we’ve known.
Also, an interesting thing to note about the Kurdish referendum is this: what on the surface seems like a secession movement is in fact a unionist movement! In this case, the four divided parts of the Kurdish population strive to reunite. In that, the Kurdish referendum is completely different from Catalonia or Scottish referendums. At the same time, it bears a striking similarity to the secession-unionist movements of Crimea (the most successful so far), Donbass, Pridnestrovie, S. Ossetia, Abkhazia and Gagauzia. In all cases, these parts of ex-Soviet republics wanted to secede in order to re-unite with Russia.

Great Balancer Theory in Action! Iraq Requests Russia’s Military/Political Presence to Rebalance Region and World
Thanks to FuturisTrendcast’s long-time friend and supporter paleohippy for a nice catch!
Link to post on RT.com: Baghdad seeking ‘substantial’ Russian military & political presence in Iraq – vice-president.
Quote from RT article:
“It’s well known that Russia has historically strong relations with Iraq, therefore we would like Russia to have a substantial presence in our country, both politically and militarily,” al-Maliki said during his meeting with the speaker of Russia’s upper house of parliament, Valentina Matviyenko.
“This way, a balance would be established that would benefit the region, its peoples and its countries,” he added.
The vice president said that Baghdad wants to boost relations with Moscow as it believes “in Russia’s role in solving most of the key international issues as well as improving stability and balance in our region and worldwide.”
Matviyenko, in turn, praised the commitment of the current Iraqi authorities to widening their cooperation with Moscow.“Russia is also determined to expand its interaction with Iraq both politically and economically as well as in the military-technical sphere, and, of course, on the parliamentary level,” she said. In his talks with Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, earlier Monday, al-Maliki stressed that a Russian presence in Iraq would bring the balance which couldn’t be “undermined in a political sense in favor of any external party.” ” END QUOTE
Going forward, we’ll see more and more confirmations of my EARTH SHIFT and RUSSIA – THE GREAT BALANCER THEORY. Various countries and leaders will continue speaking of the fact that they perceive Russia as the only force capable of stopping wars, rebalancing and stabilizing the world, brought to the grave imbalance by the dark forces of the West.
There have already been similar overt or covert announcements by various 3rd World and small countries’ leaders that went unnoticed. But more and more of these will appear, until they become hard to ignore. People feel the truth on the gut level…
Russia’s global historic and karmic role as the Great Balancer, the role that the yang and aggressive West has tried to suppress for centuries under different pretexts, is becoming obvious to people and countries around the wold. The awakening is happening everywhere.

I enjoy periodically scouting the globe — virtually or in person, as the time and my fancy permit — to find out if various geo locations might be interesting and/or desirable for a global relocation, or simply just for a relaxing vacation. I’ve mentioned previously in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17: Quality of Life Worldwide: Lada Ray Geo Calibrations that many people at this time of the EARTH SHIFT will be considering relocating to another city, country or continent. Therefore, once in a while, if a geo location intrigues me in some way, I’ll be posting an article about it here, on FT.
In no way such posts should be considered a promo or endorsement. Everyone must make their own decisions on relocation.
For those who are in need of a personalized advice, including Quantum and Geo Calibrations, coupled with my usual predictions, forecasts and global experience, I am presently considering re-introducing Lada Ray Private Consultations. I’ll have a separate announcement soon.
Today we talk Alanya, Turkey. Summer vacation time is approaching, and I thought some might be interested in this famous Turkish resort area. This isn’t a promo or recommendation by any means. This is an exploration…
I like to explore off the beaten path. Some rare gems can be found by stepping off the paved road — figuratively speaking, of course.
This is meant to be a positive and relaxing post, so I won’t go much into politics here. I’ll just mention that after a 1.5 year period of strained Russia-Turkey relations, due to Turkey shooting down Russian Su-24 jet, there is a huge improvement. Turkish Stream is back on the map, and other joint infrastructure mega projects are a go. Turkish produce and construction workers are slowly allowed back into the Russian market, and Turkey is gradually distancing itself from the West and getting into a more balanced relationship with Russia. Not all is champagne and roses, but the delicate and complex EARTH SHIFTING geopolitical game being played by Putin is bearing some very nice Turkish fruit.
Alanya and other resort areas of Turkey suffered a devastating blow when tourism from Russia suddenly dried up over two years ago, following the Su-24 downing incident and Russia’s incursion in Syria. But Putin played a virtuoso game of chess, resulting in major shifts in Turkish / Erdogan’s policies towards the West and ISIS vs. Russia. Read about all that in ESR5, ESR7 and ESR13.
Since then, the hotels and beaches are slowly filling in again. The touristy Alanya is international, where you can hear various languages, such as French, English, Italian, German, and of course, Russian. In fact, there are hotels and resorts in Turkey built specifically to cater to the preferences of the Russian tourists: usually all-inclusive packages.
What I like about Alanya:
1. You’ll see Kleopatra Beach footage below – the clear turquoise sea, nice white sand and very few people so far in May, 2017. Tourists are still reluctant to return. We’ll see what it will be like in June-August.
2. Food, hotel and various health spa services prices are 1/2 to 1/3, sometimes even as cheap as 1/4, of those you’d expect to pay in the West. But the quality of accommodations and food is as good, or better. Fresh fruits and veggie prices are especially strikingly low compared to Western, while the freshness and quality is usually substantially higher.
***Just to mention, as everywhere in the Mediterranean, you have to be careful not to get a major sun burn, even in mid-May.
Vids below are by an ex-Ukrainian Mikhail Volin (YT channel ‘ The Notes of Slavs in Russia’) who had to flee prosecution in his native city of Melitopol, following the 2014 Kiev coup. Typical of millions of other Ukrainians, he is now a Russian citizen, enjoying his freedom and much higher standard of living, and happily residing in Moscow.
Sorry for the ‘Ukraine’ slip, I did promise this post to be politics lite… Ah, well, can’t hide from reality.
But back to Alanya. Basically, the main message of this post is that Turkey has decent and new tourism infrastructure at very low prices, warm sea and all the sun you can get. Real estate is equally new and cheap, in part because of the instability of the region. But places like Alanya are tourism oriented and seem to be in another world – far away from conflict.
Video 1: Kleopatra Beach, Alanya
Video 2: Alanya prices. Beginning of video: bus ride, mall and supermarket. At 18:10 starts bazaar and fruit/veggie prices to die for. Prices are in Turkish Liras. To convert into USD: 1 Turkish Lira equals 0.28 US Dollar, or 28 cents. On the video, the Russian blogger converts everything into rubles, of course, but you can see prices in Liras displayed on camera. I was especially struck by 1.5 kilos of strawberries for $2 (that’s more than 3 pounds!) and 1 kilo (over 2 pounds) of fresh tomatoes for 28 cents and 56 cents!
***One caveat with Turkey: at the bazaar Mikhail mentions ‘standing guard over his girlfriend Elena,’ while she bargains for gifts for relatives back home, because ‘you can’t let a girl out alone in those parts.’ Incidentally, this is the case in any Middle Eastern country, and in Caucasus, as well. So, anyone who decides to explore those parts – do keep it in mind!
QUANTUM AND GEO CALIBRATIONS
QC = Quantum (cosmic energy) Calibration
CHI = Chi (earthly energy) Calibration
GC – Geo Calibration
QC: 180 – pride
CHI: 195 – yearning/striving
GC: 200 – courage/expansion
Kleopatra Beach: QC 200 ; CHI 210 – both are courage/expansion
Bazaar in Alanya: QC 280 ; CHI 285 – both are neutrality/friendliness
It’s a mixed bag, yet with some promise.
Below min. positive level of 200 for QC and CHI. GC is on the level of pride: typical of the West and well below what I want to see – disappointing. However, CHI shows how much the locals are striving to please the tourists. This could be the low season calibration and could go up when and if tourism returns in earnest, and if Trukey manages to stabilize. That’s why at present it’s so cheap there, by the way!
And now look at GOOD positive values for GC, K. Beach and especially the bazaar! Nice, strong CHI for the last 2!

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.
