Blast from the past: Russia US Enemy No. 1 — THE EARTH SHIFTER predictions materializing today!

A very timely reminder — prediction made years ago is manifesting today. This article includes Chapter 13 of my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER, never before published separately (you’ll be able to read it below). When I was writing it I made a prediction… in fact, there were a number of predictions and certain earth-shifting prophecies included in the book.

ES COVER ebook

In the year 2017, as we are going through a new escalation of anti-Russian hysteria and anti-Russian sanctions in the US, I am recalling what I wrote in 2008 – 2009. My novel The Earth Shifter was released on Amazon in the end of 2012, right after December 21, 2012, the day Earth aligned with the Galactic Center. According to the ‘Mayan calendar’ and many ‘gurus’ the world was supposed to end on that date. Hysteria was overwhelming and many were fully expecting the end of the world before Christmas…

On January 11, 2012 I published Year 2012 Predictions on Lada Ray Blog. This was my first official public foray into global predictions and futurist trendcast. In the article I explained my predictive methodology and also said that 12/21/12 would be a non-event. Meanwhile, I said, the monumental changes were afoot in our world, but it would be a long-term process. Please go to original article from 1/11/12 to read exactly what was said about 12/21/12, and other predictions.

Right after the ‘end of the world’ failed to materialize on 12/21/12, the new EARTH SHIFT ERA began. In the end of December 2012 I released THE EARTH SHIFTER.

It took several years to write it from start to finish. I began slowly around 2008-2009, as the book’s general idea and main characters shaped up in my head. These characters were: Siberian Shaman Tengis, The Earth Shifter Sasha and her father Maxim, both residing in Moscow, and Chinese-American twins Kei and Win, who live in New York. The writing began with several chapters, written in one breath, and these chapters were little changed since. The entire book was built around those initial chapters, which were meant to frame the key points of future novel.

The chapters I am talking about are:

CHAPTER 1: 1908 EMERGENCY GATHERING OF THE EARTH KEEPERS TO DETERMINE WHETHER THIS HUMAN CIVILIZATION DESERVES TO GO ON (mystical and historic, 1908)

CHAPTER 2: MEET SASHA, SHAMAN TENGIS AND SASHA’S FATHER MAXIM ON LAKE BAIKAL, SIBERIA (our time)

CHAPTER 3: HOW SASHA’S MIND AND TIME SHIFTING ABILITIES WERE DISCOVERED (our time)

CHAPTER 5: KEI AND WIN ON CANAL STREET, NYC. THE TWIN MYSTERY BEGINS: WHICH ONE IS THE SECOND HALF OF THE EARTH SHIFTER KEY? AND WHICH ONE POSSESSES THE COVETED SPACE AND MATTER SHIFTING ABILITIES? (our time)

The above chapters can be read free as part of the main book EXCERPT.

The rest of the initial chapters, around which the rest of the book would later be built, were:

CHAPTER 12: THE STORY OF THE TAIGA ADVENTURE AND TENGIS’S BEAR DRUM (mystical and historic, 1930s)

And last, but certainly not least:

CHAPTER 13: HOW CIA REMEMBERED THAT RUSSIA WAS ENEMY NO. 1. IN THIS CHAPTER WE MEET THE DARK FIGURE OF ALOYSIUS DRAKLEY AND THE ENIGMATIC SECRET ORGANIZATION CALLED ‘THE SOCIETY,’ WHICH TODAY WE MAY CALL ‘DARK STATE’ OR ‘DEEP STATE.’ (our time)

During 2008-2009, as I wrote THE EARTH SHIFTER I tried to join some writing groups, and even paid some good money for online writing courses. When I attempted to read or submit online some of the above chapters for critique, at best I got blank stares, at worst — mean rebuffs. No one took what I wrote seriously.

In regards to Russia, a standard response was: ‘But Russian economy is just a tiny fraction of the US economy; Russia is in shambles after it lost Cold War. How can it be possibly taken seriously by the US?’ Compare that to what the same people may be saying now: “Russia is trying to take over the USA, even the US president is a Russian agent.” 

I finally realized that I was casting my precious beads in front of you know who and stopped trying to fit a round peg into a square hole.

So much happened since… It may be hard to believe, but at the time (and we are talking only 6-9 years ago!) no one anywhere in the world appeared to be able to conceive that Russia would rebuild very quickly; that Russia would again become a force to be reckoned with; that Russia would successfully re-assert herself as the only power capable of stopping US aggression and rebalancing the world.

See recent posts, proving the point:

How to reinforce anti-Russian hysteria? “Hold on, Bro” — today’s video from NYC, where on Trump Tower a projection in English and Russian has appeared, implying that Putin supports Trump in his difficult situation, offering, among other things ‘money laundering services.’ The show is complete with fake troops marching to the Russian anthem and with the Russian flag:

To me it was absolutely clear starting in early 2000s that USA would toy with the idea of China as Enemy No. 1, and with radical Islamism as Enemy No. 1. But in the end the US will realize that after all,  no one else makes the cut of its archenemy but Russia – The Great Balancer! 

Why? I explain it in the above-linked piece. Much more about that is in WEBINARS.

At the time I wrote THE EARTH SHIFTER, no one knew that the Great Earth Shift would be fully underway in just a few short years…

 

When Chapter 13 was written the world was very different, Russia was very different and US was different, too. 

This particular excerpt had never been made available free before. Let’s see how I saw it at the time, and let’s see how closely it correlates with today’s developments!

Chapter Image 13

There was a time when Aloysius Drakley was an American patriot. He was young and naïve, and very eager to advance to the top of the American power structure, which at the time signified to him the very pinnacle of worldly achievement. A relentlessly hard worker, he possessed sharp intellect coupled with a confident grasp of world events, and he moved quickly up the career ladder. His specialty—fighting Communism—was always en vogue.

There was a short hiccup in the 1990s, after Communism in Russia was abolished and the once mighty USSR fell apart, like an old, poorly constructed shoe. At that point, it seemed that there was no more enemy left to fight and since it lost its significance within the American power structure, the once indispensable CIA was left to fend for itself. It seemed Russia would never recover from the breakup blow, and therefore the CIA’s role became obsolete.

In the beginning of the new millennium, a new world power started emerging—the People’s Republic of China. The old CIA wolves rejoiced; again, there was a worthy enemy to fight! But it soon became clear that the USA couldn’t afford to fight the old Cold War game with its new competitor, what with China being America’s largest creditor, holding over a trillion dollars worth of the country’s debt, as well as being the manufacturer of the majority of the goods on the US market, necessary to feed the beast of American consumerism.

No, with China they had to tread softly, as stepping on too many Chinese toes could result in killing the goose that laid the golden eggs. The USA, with its staggering debt and dwindling economy could not allow that to happen. Of course, there were low-level spy scandals and the exchange of tough words with the Chinese on various occasions, but it was nothing like during the height of the Cold War. The CIA longed for the good old days, desperate to resurrect a reliable enemy. It seemed for a brief moment that the Muslims could be molded into one, but they turned out to be disappointingly disorganized, small-minded, and too easy to squash.

It was clear to all that the USA, this greatest of countries, has become the world’s only super-power. But as everyone in the US government rested on laurels, toasting to victory over its Cold War archenemy, something was happening in Russia. The new President of Russia was elected after Yeltsin left with a televised apology to his country for all of his mistakes. The new man’s name was Vladimir Dobrov, and he quietly, but purposefully, started turning the country around. Of course, it helped tremendously that Russia was sitting on the largest deposits of mineral wealth in the world, including over thirty percent of world’s natural gas and more oil than Saudi Arabia. By the year 2010, Russia looked nothing like the wreck of a country it was in the 1990s, and based on the latest intel, they were just warming up.

That’s when it was suddenly remembered that the only worthy geopolitical opponent the USA ever had was Russia. Who cared about ideology, which was really only an excuse! Communism, or no Communism, Russia, with its nuclear arsenal, newly modernized military, booming economy, third largest cash reserves in the world (after China and Japan), practically no debt, educated population, and independent policy, was the only real geopolitical threat!

It made no difference that they were not interested in the Cold War replay. Bottom line, the CIA, NATO and the Military-Industrial Complex needed a worthy enemy to fight, otherwise what would be left of their raison d’etre? Yes, the fight against the Number One Geopolitical Enemy was alive and well, and it was in fact the fight for their organizations’ survival.

But what if the American people didn’t want to get into this fight? They could be convinced, if need be. This had been done successfully before, and it could be done again.

And so, Drakley and his CIA buddies were back in business. The CIA once again became as important and powerful as it had been previously. On the surface, the stated objective of the agency’s activity was to fight global terrorism and “rogue” nations like Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria and North Korea, because all these countries “were developing nuclear weapons.” It didn’t matter that every time North Korea tested its rockets, they plunged into the sea, never reaching its target, or that Iraq had never had any nuclear program, or that Iran had no capacity to send its rockets (even if they had any nuclear devices) to any targets with proclaimed American “interests.” This was an excellent cover, and the gullible American public continued buying everything their politicians and media dumped on them without question. But those in the know had no doubt that the real geopolitical enemy was Russia—well, and of course, China as well.

Drakley went to Yale and, as many in his class, made a choice of going into politics straight after graduation. It wasn’t as important to excel academically as it was to know the right people. Connections were everything; favors were done for each other as a matter of course, and fully expected back.

One of his classmates was then Senator Steven Potts’s son, Justin. They were friendly, and Drakley definitely had to thank this friendship for his advancement within the ranks of the CIA. Drakley was already almost at the top, almost where he was convinced he belonged. He was just named the Assistant Director of the CIA, which put him in such close proximity to his ultimate life’s ambition that he could practically smell the supple brown leather of the executive chair in the CIA Director’s office.

His boss, this old weasel, was about to retire and move to Florida, or wherever these old geezers moved to die. Drakley was confident the chair of the CIA Director was his, when something changed. Steven Potts won the U.S. Presidential Election. He had one of the first meetings as President-elect of the United States with Drakley. He complimented him on his work; he told him how much he needed his talent on his side. And just when Drakley, who was basking in the light of the compliments, expected to hear the news of his promotion, the President dropped the bomb.

He was bypassing him for promotion; he had someone else in mind, and that someone else was his son, Justin—the nobody who didn’t serve a day in the CIA, the imbecile who hardly finished school, and who only got his graduation certificate thanks to daddy’s generous infusions into Yale University’s coffers.

Drakley swallowed the insult and made himself equally indispensable to both Pottses, Senior and Junior. He handled all of the CIA’s operations, as Justin Potts played golf with his buddies. He was the one conducting the White House daily briefings and, before long, he became the President’s trusted right hand. Or rather left hand, because all this was supposed to be happening in secret. No one was supposed to know who was really calling shots within the Administration, and Drakley was fine with that because he achieved his life’s ambition: unrivaled power over his country. Potts listened to him more than he listened to his Vice President, National Security Advisor, and Secretary of State put together. Drakley had become Potts’s shadow, his gray cardinal and puppeteer.

There seemed to be no greater power than Aloysius Drakley’s within the U.S. Government. Of course, very few people knew about the true extent of his reach, but he consoled himself with the fact that all those who mattered knew, and that was the most important thing. He congratulated himself on achieving his ultimate goal of being at the top, albeit not exactly as he had initially planned. At that point, it appeared that there was nothing left for him to achieve.

But that’s when it turned out that his entire understanding of world power constructs was worthless, that he in fact was a nobody. His disappointment was quickly replaced by euphoria because it was the day when he was approached by The Society. During the secret meeting, they told him they’d been watching his progress for a long time. They also explained that the USA wasn’t what he always thought it was. It was by no means the independent and proud country he’d imagined it to be. No, it was only a tool in The Society’s global dominance game.

The Society, as it turned out, was simply a group of exceptional men and women, who by virtue of their exalted birth, wealth, and talents concentrated great power in their hands. They were above any governments and they sought Ultimate Global Dominance. Why? Because they could. Because they were smart. They were better than the rest of the human worms, and therefore, deserved to be on top.

Drakley knew right away that that’s where he belonged. The Society included kings and queens, authoritarian heads of state, billionaires; in short, the planetary crème de la crème. And now he was one of them!

The Society had a very rigorous initiation program and a series of tests to prove that you were worthy. The most important of all the tests was to bring in a valuable piece of knowledge—so valuable and important that it affected the human race as a whole, and was the one that would advance The Society’s cause of Ultimate Global Dominance.

Drakley realized immediately what he just learned from Yuun Lin fit the bill perfectly. This was his contribution to the cause, which would propel him to the very top. As soon as the meeting with Yuun Lin was over, he knew that his next step was to visit The Society’s headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

At this point, Drakley still was a junior member, and as such, still on probation. He wasn’t privy to what was discussed during the highly coveted Inner Circle meetings. What he wanted more than anything in his life was to become a part of that Inner Circle, but that was extremely hard. He knew he had to play his cards exactly right. The information he was about to bring to the table was so exceptional, so precious, that he could use it as a bargaining chip to advance his position in The Society.

Drakley had his car take him to the Four Seasons Hotel, then he dismissed all his people. His decision was to stay in New York incognito in order to work out his next move.

Once alone, Drakley picked up his phone, which included a secret chip. Every member of The Society had a similar chip—the latest Swiss technology—installed in their phones. When the code only he knew was entered, the chip would switch on the call-protection device, which would filter the call to select a narrow-banded wavelength, thus cutting off all other wavelengths in the process. Therefore, even if his phone was being tapped, which was highly unlikely since he was the boss, no one but the call addressee would hear anything.

“I have a very important piece of information,” pronounced Drakley into the phone, “which can impact life on our planet as we know it. I request an urgent meeting with the Inner Circle.”

“You are only a junior member, Mr. Drakley. I am afraid it’s impossible,” replied a voice with a distinct German accent.

“Trust me, the exceptionally important information I possess fully warrants such a meeting.”

“Just like everyone else, you must describe all that in writing and the Circle will consider it at the next gathering.”

“I am afraid,” responded Drakley dryly, “what I have to offer cannot wait and cannot be put in writing. It is simply too valuable and too dangerous. I must insist on an urgent meeting. If there is anything that can expedite The Society’s stated goal of Ultimate Global Dominance, this is it. Let me put it this way, there are many powerful interests on our planet, which would be happy to purchase this invaluable piece of information. But I am offering it to The Society. Don’t make me reconsider.”

“Please wait,” responded the voice after a pause. “I’ll be right with you.”

There was a lengthy silence, which made Drakley nervously pace his hotel room, and then the voice said, “The Inner Circle has scheduled you for 9 p.m. Swiss time tomorrow. Don’t be late.”

Drakley caught the first flight to Geneva, and at 9 p.m. sharp, he was walking into a magnificent room located at The Society’s Swiss Headquarters.

He surveyed the place, noting a circle of mahogany armchairs with burgundy velvet cushions, which at the moment were filling in with the who’s who of the elite world. He took a deep breath, savoring his moment of triumph. His most impossible dreams were coming true as he was about to rub shoulders with the world’s secret movers and shakers, those who really made the world go round. These were the true power players and everyone else were mere pawns in their hands.

Drakley cleared his throat. “Ladies and Gentlemen,” he started importantly. “I am here today to tell you what I’ve just learned myself. This is truly and without exaggeration earth-shattering news!”

He told the Inner Circle assembly what he learned from Yuun Lin, adding that as the CIA Assistant Director, he alone was in a unique position to get close to the young man who would become The Society’s key to fulfilling the Ultimate Global Dominance doctrine. He explained his master plan: courting the young man in question, nurturing his talents and stroking his ego, until, as had happened to so many before, the young man would be so corrupted with perks and attention that he would forget right from wrong. And when the other half of the Key made contact, the same scenario would be applied again, until the Key was theirs in body, mind, and spirit. Then, they could use the formidable powers of the Key to advance their purposes, thus making the dream of Ultimate Global Dominance a reality.

He could tell that the assembly was duly impressed with his master plan, as after his report he was treated very differently. During a break, they shook his hand with big smiles on their normally dour faces, and it was clear as day that they were accepting him as their own.

After the first part of the assembly was over, Drakley prepared to leave, since his report was finished, his plan approved, and he wasn’t invited to the second part. But as he was about to exit the room, a tall man whose erect posture resembled a long, unyielding stick and whom CIA Assistant Director had never seen before, approached him with a request to stay. Drakley had a professional memory and he would’ve remembered these thin lips and a long, pedigreed nose.

The man, who was dressed in a gray three-piece suit, took an old-fashioned gold watch out of his vest pocket. “Part two of our meeting is about to start, Mr. Drakley. I believe you will find it rather beneficial to participate,” he said with an accent that screamed Eton and Cambridge.

Drakley nodded, hardly containing his excitement. “Of course,” he said calmly, as if he received such invitations every day.

“You may have heard about the man who shall be making his appearance in a couple of minutes,” the man in a gray suit went on. “His name is Boris Konukovsky, he is the CEO of NORUS, Russia’s largest oil company, and he is the second half of our two-prong Ultimate Global Dominance strategy. I believe it’s about time the two of you met.”

SOME HEADS UP AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

I greatly appreciate everyone’s purchases of THE EARTH SHIFTER, and of course your reviews, if you want to post them on Amazon.

Here’s the thing, so you know how it works: percentage-wise Amazon pays pretty well for ebooks, but the pay is lousy for paperbacks. If you think I make more on paperback version than on ebook because it costs more, think again. Depending on the country of sale and the distributor through which the sale has occurred, I may get anywhere between $1.25 and $2.5 per each paperback sold. For ebooks it’s much better, considering the price of ebooks is also lower. The majority of my readers actually have been buying paperbacks. But if it’s all the same to you, I’d rather you purchased ebook versions of my novels for regular reading. Granted, it’s impossible to get rich off writing, or even make any sort of living, unless you are JK Rowling, Dan Brown or a Clinton. But still, it would be nice to get at least something.

If you are interested in Collectors’ signed 1st Edition paperbacks of my books, read on!

In this regard, I am planning on switching to another publisher, which should, hopefully, pay more for paperbacks. There will be new second editions of each novel. I plan new covers, new sizing and formatting. But this takes a lot of work, and it probably will happen in the autumn into winter 2017-18. I’m planning on retiring Edition 1 for THE EARTH SHIFTER and my other books GOLD TRAIN and STEPFORD USA. As I do, I may be able to offer for sale signed collectors’ first edition paperbacks of all three novels to my FuturisTrendcast readers. The signed author paperback copies will be offered exclusively through me and they won’t be available anywhere else. I am hoping to be able to send signed first edition paperbacks to those interested around the world, but I’ll need to check into shipping charges.

Just in time for the Holidays! I plan to announce my second editions in October-November 2017. At the same time I’ll also announce when signed collectors’ first editions will be available.

See all of my books at a glance on Amazon.

I thought I’d address this as a bonus highlight of  ESW2 INVERTED COLLAPSE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why King George V of England condemned Russian Emperor Nikolay II and his family to death

Dear Lada, I am listening to the Webinar 2 INVERTED COLLAPSE. Now at part 1 covering the Revolutions. Well-done, it is very informative and has a lot of eye-openers already!

One small addendum that I want to mention: WWI was at the time called “the war of 4 cousins”, indicating that the heads of the four warring empires were blood relatives. In 2014 I gleaned an interesting titbit of information from a BBC documentary “The Genius of Carl Fabergé” (the maker of the exquisite Easter egg presents for the royal court). It turns out that at the time, while Carl Fabergé got an offer to get smuggled out of Russia disguised as a member of the British delegation on the last train, Nikolai II was denied such an opportunity by the his cousin, George V.
The documentary itself was aired in Norway on NRK2 in a set of Russia-themed programmes in connection with the Olympics in Sochi. Predictably, it has its own interpretation of the reasons for the revolution, but at least the information above seemed to be genuine.

 

LADA RAY’S TRUTH BOMB!

“…while Carl Fabergé got an offer to get smuggled out of Russia disguised as a member of the British delegation on the last train, Nikolai II was denied such an opportunity by the his cousin, George V.”

Yes, that’s what we have to understand once and for all. Dear Cousin George of England didn’t mind sacrificing his dear Cousin Nikolay of Russia and his whole family as a result of the Great Russian 1917 Revolution, also known as the Bolshevik Revolution.

For what? As I explained in the webinar, to create the pre-planned upheaval and turmoil from which Russia would never recover, that which would subsequently destroy Russia and eliminate the powerful Great Balancer of our Planet Earth.

ULTIMATE GOAL: full-spectrum world dominance by the West and the creation of NWO.

The first step in this grand scheme was to get rid of the Great Balancer — the only force that stood in the way, so that the imbalanced and overly yang collective West (in any of its manifestations known today: British Empire, Anglo-American Empire, NWO, banksters, globalists, Bilderberg, Deep State, which I prefer to refer to as Dark State) could bend the rest of the world to its specifications.

As the EARTH SHIFT – GREAT BALANCER THEORY implies, and as discussed in ESW2 INVERTED COLLAPSE, this is exactly why Lenin acted the way he acted and this is why he truly was a genius: he saw right through it and played his cards right. In order to understand what I mean by these words, please listen to INVERTED COLLAPSE! Warning! Whatever you do, dear readers, listen to my webinar explanation first; don’t jump to conclusions, which may be based solely on your brainwashing and incomplete information!

This is also why the USSR was necessary and unavoidable. What do I mean? FOR DETAILS SEE ESW2 INVERTED COLLAPSE.

Russian Emperor Nikolay II (Nicolas II) Romanov and his whole family were ultimately executed on July 17, 1918. As the new documents coming to light suggest, at the insistence of the British crown and with the participation of British agents.

The British Empire as the front for the Western yang aggression, for centuries had a long and protracted history of blood-stained and manipulative interference in Russian and other countries’ affairs. USA today is the heir and latest front for Western dominance and aggression. The front has changed, yet the essence remains, since the US has inherited the ‘title’ as a result of WWII.

Just recently Putin has been talking about how the West brazenly interferes in today’s Russian internal affairs. A well-known fact is that the US ambassador and embassy employees, taking advantage of their diplomatic immunity, travel all over Russia with suitcases full of American cash, which they hand out to various self-proclaimed anti-Russian, anti-Putin opposition groups, in order to organize color revolution in the run-up to next year’s Russian elections. The latest data I have received suggests that US Congress authorized $5 billion to ‘promote democracy’ in Russia for 2018 year alone. As we know, the ‘promotion of democracy’ is the code phrase for color revolution followed by the destruction of a country unfortunate enough to experience the US/West’s ‘friendly attention.’ We are now seeing what this ‘attention’ has done to Ukraine: LADA RAY DEEP INTEL: Catastrophic Population Loss. Why Ukrainians stampede into Poland.

Back in history, a typical blatant interference in Russian affairs was the 1916 assassination of Grigory Rasputin — under direct management and participation of a British agent. From a fictional and multidimensional perspective I describe the Rasputin assassination and its implications in my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. I factually talk about Rasputin ‘s elimination and his true role in trying to preserve Russia in EARTH SHIFT Webinar 2 INVERTED COLLAPSE.

Same gruesome fate awaited the head of the anti-Bolshevik White Movement Admiral Alaxander Kolchak. He naively trusted the British and even became a British subject (!), thinking he would get more priority UK help to ‘liberate Russia from the Bolsheviks.’ HUGE mistake! According to my in-depth research, corroborated by Russian bestselling geopolitical author Nikolay Starikov, the British demanded that Kolchak give up all of Russian Gold to the UK (does that sound familiar?..). When he refused, they had him executed by orchestrating his capture by a closely-associated with the UK group. Kolchak, was captured and according to official history, given up to the Bolsheviks in 1920. The problem with the official Wikipedia narrative on Kolchak is that the truth lies somewhere else. It appears it weren’t the Bolsheviks, after all, who executed Kolchak, but the Esers (aka, SRs =  the early 20th century fringe party of social-revolutionaries), who were basically a leftist-anarchist group, loosely siding with the Bolsheviks at the time, but who, as it later transpired, were on British payroll.

My novel GOLD TRAIN describes in fictional form one part of the mystery of the missing Russian Empire’s Gold, sometimes referred to as the Kolchak Gold.

Speaking of “the war of 4 cousins…” It is a well-known historic fact that Russian Emperor Nikolay II was extremely reluctant to enter WWI and was unwilling to go to war against anyone, least of all Germany. He and his diplomats spent a great deal of effort trying to convince the conflicting parties to part in peace. Nikolay II and German Emperor Wilhelm II of Prussia were more than cousins — they were close friends, on nickname basis, who corresponded a lot. In a true Great Balancer fashion, then Russian leader did what he could to avoid world war and to preserve peace.

From this perspective it is especially strange how such close-knit friends could get into a war which severed all ties, destroyed their empires and cost millions of lives, including their own… Clearly, there were problems inside Russia, as well as Germany and other Euopean countries. But all in all, there was no need in plunging into World War I. Only outside manipulation — by well-known parties, pursuing very well known globalist and West domination goals — could have achieved that.

Incidentally, please recall my forbidden history/forbidden linguistics lesson from some time ago: Prussia means Po-Russia. There is a lot less than 6 degrees of separation between Russians and Germans — and Brits too. Not only the emperors circa WWI were cousins. We all are close cousins, brothers and sisters. Pity that humans so often forget that…

The Plot Thickens! Who’ll Win French Election: Marine Le Pen, Macron, Fillon or Melenchon?

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.

Abbreviations:

Quantum Calibrations – QC; Chi level – CHI; Heart Chakra – HC

Marine Le Pen 

QC  409 (reason); CHI  200 (confrontational courage); HC  280 (neutrality/friendliness)

Emmanuel Macron

QC  180 (pride); CHI  191 (yearning/striving); HC  180 (pride)

Francois Fillon

QC  195 (yearning/striving); CHI  190 (yearning/striving);  HC 150 (anger/bitterness)

Jean-Luc Melenchon

QC  141 (greed/desire); CHI  280 (neutrality/friendliness); HC 181 (pride)

(Find complete legend & calibration value interpretations in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17 Quality of Life Worldwide: Lada Ray Geo Calibrations)

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.

Per My 2012 Prediction! French Elections and the Rise of Marine le Pen and National Front

Per My 2012 Prediction! French Elections and the Rise of Marine le Pen and National Front

It’s official!

Marine le Pen’s National Front wins the first round of regional elections with a national total of about 30%. It’s ahead of Sarkozy’s Republican Party and the trailing ruling Socialist Party of Francois Hollande. National Front gained sharply in the past 3 years and is expected to win again in the second round of these elections. The result has stunned the two traditional parties.

Even if National Front doesn’t win (and barring some huge and almost impossible surprise, such as Sarkozy and Hollande uniting against le Pen, it will win round 2!), Marin le Pen’s star is clearly rising very quickly and definitively, while Hollande’s is plunging, as I predicted in 2012. Back then I also predicted the turnaround of the French policy – and it’s coming. When French policy changes dramatically, it will sweep the change into the rest of the EU. Of course, fully this will happen later, but it’s a good start!

If you think that French regional elections don’t decide that much, it’s true. Regional elections are not very significant per se, but they are considered an important litmus test and dress rehearsal in the run up to the French National Elections of 2017.

Marine Le Pen, Member of the European Parliament:

Marine Le Pen is a French politician who is the president of the National Front. Her party was third-largest political party in France in 2011. It grew into the largest party by 2014. More in Wikipedia

Videos with more details

Marine le Pen’s National Front:

I want to note that what passes for ‘far right’ in France, in fact is a tough, but sensible and reasonable conservatism. What’s important is that it’s outside of either neocon or neoliberal ideology presently dominating the West.

Marine le Pen wisely took steps to soften the image of her party by dismissing her party’s tough far right ideologist, who, interestingly enough, happens to be her father and the founder of the National Front. This attracted scores of new voters. Le Pen is a consistent proponent of good relations with Russia, who’s also for France’s sovereign and independent policy. She is a huge critic of the EU in general and Angela Merkel’s policies in particular; USA and NATO skeptic.

In 2012 I had predicted the rise of Marine le Pen and her party.

Here is a quote from my French Presidential Elections 2012 article in which I predicted that Sarkozy would lose and Francois Hollande would win elections.

Excerpts from April 28, 2012 article:

2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone

“Updated prediction:

In a very funny twist, I am predicting that in the second round socialist Hollande (left) will take some of Marine Le Pen’s (far right) votes, along with the fourth place finisher votes (far left).

Seemingly, it doesn’t make any sense. But: the vote for Hollande is a vote against Sarkozy. This is a protest vote, pure and simple. Because, as I said in my January 2012 prediction: “[Sarkozy is] deeply disliked in his country and [that’s why he] will lose.” The French simply don’t want another five years with him.

In addition to Sarkozy’s ineffectual domestic policies and his foreign policy that is both too America-centered and too bellicose for the liking of the French electorate, there is also another reason. As mentioned before, the crisis in the EU continues to deepen and that spells disaster for the incumbent Euro leaders. So far, 9 governments have been ousted due to the European crisis, including Greek, Italian and Dutch. There are more to come. For Sarkozy, this spells the perfect storm.

CONCLUSION:

On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election (which, based on his reaction after the first round has been a surprise only to him, but no one else). 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. There will be SOME change in the French attitude towards the EU and Eurozone. 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, as well as in Russia. 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 is anti-emigration and anti-war, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.”

Lada’s 2 Cents: Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is trying to save the world from war. We should all help him.

New article by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Reagan’s Asst Treasury Secretary and Father of Reaganomics: Can Putin’s Diplomacy Prevail Over Washington’s Coercion?.

I have come to respect Dr. Roberts tremendously for the work he does and for his ardent desire to tell the truth. It is amazing, coming from a former Washington insider, Wall Street Journal editor, and one of the top mainstream American economists. But we all grow. I was a financial consultant on Wall Street, too; the years I spent there woke me up to the dirty underbelly of the world like nothing else.

By Paul Craig Roberts: June 24, 2014.Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is trying to save the world from war. We should all help him.

Today Putin’s presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov reported that President Putin has asked the Russian legislature to repeal the authorization to use force that was granted in order to protect residents of former Russian territories that are currently part of Ukraine from the rabid Russophobic violence that characterizes Washington’s stooge government in Kiev.

Washington’s neoconservatives are jubilant. They regard Putin’s diplomacy as a sign of weakness and fear, and urge stronger steps that will force Russia to give back Crimea and the Black Sea naval base.

Inside Russia, Washington is encouraging its NGO fifth columns to undercut Putin’s support with propaganda that Putin is afraid to stand up for Russians and has sold out Ukraine’s Russian population. If this propaganda gains traction, Putin will be distracted by street protests. The appearance of Putin’s domestic weakness would embolden Washington. Many members of Russia’s young professional class are swayed by Washington’s propaganda. Essentially, these Russians, brainwashed by US propaganda, are aligned with Washington, not with the Kremlin.

Putin has placed his future and that of his country on a bet that Russian diplomacy can prevail over Washington’s bribes, threats, blackmail, and coercion. Putin is appealing to Western Europeans. Putin is saying, “I am not the problem. Russia is not the problem. We are reasonable. We are ignoring Washington’s provocations. We want to work things out and to find a peaceful solution.”

Washington is saying: “Russia is a threat. Putin is the new Hitler. Russia is the enemy. NATO and the US must begin a military buildup against the Russian Threat, rush troops and jet fighters to Eastern European NATO bases on Russia’s frontier. G-8 meetings must be held without Russia. Economic sanctions must be put on Russia regardless of the damage the sanctions do to Europe.” And so forth.

Putin says: “I’m here for you. Let’s work this out.”

Washington says: “Russia is the enemy.”

Putin knows that the UK is a complete vassal puppet state, that Cameron is just as bought-and-paid-for as Blair before him. Putin’s hope for diplomacy over force rests on Germany and France. Both countries face Europe’s budget and employment woes, and both countries have significant economic relations with Russia. German business interests are a counterweight to the weak Merkel government’s subservience to Washington. Washington has stupidly angered the French by trying to steal $10 billion from France’s largest bank. This theft, if successful, will destroy France’s largest bank and deliver France to Wall Street.

If desire for national sovereignty still exists in the German or French governments, one or both could give the middle finger to Washington and publicly declare that they are unwilling for their country to be drawn into conflict with Russia for the sake of Washington’s Empire and the financial hegemony of American banks.

Putin is betting on this outcome. If his bet is a bad one and Europe fails not only Russia but itself and the rest of the world by accommodating Washington’s drive for world hegemony, Russia and China will have to submit to Washington’s hegemony or be prepared for war.

As neither side can afford to lose the war, the war would be nuclear. As scientists have made clear, life on earth would cease, regardless of whether Washington’s ABM shield works.

This is why I oppose Washington’s policies and speak out against the arrogance and hubris that define Washington today. The most likely outcome of Washington’s pursuit of world hegemony is the extinction of life on earth.” PaulCraigRoberts.org

Lada’s 2 cents:

To the question: Can Putin’s Diplomacy Prevail Over Washington’s Coercion?

My answer is: YES, but it will be a long and difficult going. And, YES, I agree with Dr. Roberts – Putin and Russia need our help. Enough for Russia to always carry the burden of fighting the Western aggression alone!!! It happened too often in the past. This is for all of us and we must not sit idle! The alternative is the end of humanity, as I said in my previous article: Judgment and the Future of Humanity.

Is Putin correct in placing his future and that of his country on a bet that Russian diplomacy can prevail over Washington’s bribes, threats, blackmail, and coercion?

Putin is absolutely correct, but again, this will be a very tedious, risky and nerve-racking process. Washington’s games are disgusting and dangerous – their goal is to destroy not only Russia, but to damage as much of the world as possible. It is clear why. They know the US economy situation is dire. IF they can export at least some of their problems – something they’ve been doing successfully for decades, and if they can create crises in other countries, they can tell their own population: “See, it’s even worse somewhere else.” Besides, Europe’s predisposition to wars is well-known. So, if they succeed in starting a serious conflict in Europe, US and Canada stand to make billions upon billions, just like during WWI, WWII and the Cold War.

However, I predicted that Russia will resolve the geopolitical GROUND ZERO situation in Ukraine via “peaceful and quiet means” from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis. See PREDICTIONS and my early Ukraine articles for more.

Yes, Putin and Russia will pull it off. But I want to stress again and again: they need everyone’s help! Everyone should share the truth with as many people as possible; tweet, FB, re-blog; write to your Congress/ Parliament (in Europe) representatives; write to newspapers and alternative media!

A word about Merkel, Hollande and EU: Merkel has completely lost my respect; most other EU leaders are useless US stooges. It was disgusting how Bulgaria’s president kissed McCain’s you-know-what during his recent visit, announcing afterwards that Bulgaria would withdraw from South Stream – the Russian gas pipeline, which can only be seen as a “lifeline” for Bulgaria. France’s Hollande isn’t much better. But US angered the French so much by their unreasonable economic demands and extortion, that Hollande can’t afford to behave openly as a “French poodle” to the US any more. If he does, he would be booted out of office in no time. The only voice of reason in France, and perhaps the only hope on the European continent, is Marine Le Pen, who won the Europarliament election, unseating Hollande’s party. By the way, I predicted this turn of events in the same 2012 article in which I predicted Sarkozy’s loss and Hollande’s win. Read here: 2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone.

I am preparing new articles about the geopolitics of the Russian gas pipelines, and about Marine Le Pen and other politicians. Coming soon!

 

Announcement: People in Russia, Ukraine and all over the world are now meticulously documenting all the crimes of the Kiev junta, ukro-nazi right sector and other fascist organizations, Ukraine media, oligarchs and politicians, the military, as well as all those who are helping them. These are documented via YT videos, photos, eyewitness accounts, articles, white papers and physical evidence. Work on the future international tribunal, which will try these criminals for crimes against humanity, has already begun. I do my part by telling the truth about Ukraine and translating into English the real voice of the people. Everyone’s welcome to participate.

The Earth Shifter Plot Playing Out in Real Time: Massive Meteor Rocks Russia

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

I received a flood of emails and tweets with messages like, “Hey, does this remind you of anything?” and “Is this like The Earth Shifter plot?” Yes, it is like the plot of THE EARTH SHIFTER materializing in front of our very eyes. Exactly as described, just like it happened in Siberia in 1908, or just like it could happen again – but a little ahead of schedule, so to speak…

In 1908, the Tunguska Meteorite explosion in the remote Podkamennaya Tunguska region of Siberia rocked the world. This historic event has become the fantasy/scifi premise for THE EARTH SHIFTER. Read more about it.

And this just happened in the Chelyabinsk region of the Ural Mountains, which is the dividing point between the European part of Russia and Siberia.

According to Russia Today (RT):

“It’s not been quite average morning in Russia. People in the Urals region have seen burning objects raining down from the sky after a meteorite exploded above the Earth.
MORE INFO & PHOTOS: http://on.rt.com/qn2v57

I’m happy to say that there were no deaths and all the injuries received were treatable, based on reports. That’s a big relief.

Russians have obviously embraced the 21st Century very thoroughly, as a myriad of spectacular videos of the meteor and its aftermath were captured by various web cams, dash cams, cell phones, and CCTV installed in cars, trucks, offices, parking lots, and even schools.

Witness how it happened! Watch these incredible eye-witness Youtube videos, courtesy RT. Click on each video to watch!

Tired of characters you don’t care about? Want to read an intensely moving fantasy cleverly intertwined with true historic events? Want to immerse yourself in the new, rich and fascinating world, with surprises and revelations at every turn?

THE EARTH SHIFTER is for you!

The meteor that broke up over the Urals today, hurtling its pieces down on the unsuspecting city, was only the size of the kitchen table. The meteor (or asteroid) that just missed Planet Earth by 17,000 miles (not much by the Cosmic standards), was 155 feet long! See the last video above.

The Comet of Karma described in THE EARTH SHIFTER is much, much larger. It’s roughly the size of the Island of Manhattan, akin to the size of the Comet that ended the dominion of the once mighty Dinosaurs on our planet (what happened to the Dinosaurs would be described in the upcoming Earth Keepers Chronicles: Origins – April release). Watching all these videos, I can’t help but ask the question raised in the book: Will the Earth Keepers interfere, saving the day again? Read Excerpt

Prediction: 2012 US Presidential Elections

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

US Presidential Elections are on November 6, 2012. On January 11, I posted my original predictions for 2012, including the so-called Year of Elections, namely my predictions for USA, Russia, and France.

Here’s what I said regarding US Presidential Elections: 

“Republicans will pick Romney, who is perceived as the man of the middle, and therefore, appears a safe bet. And Romney will NOT beat Obama. In short, USA will remain sharply divided along partisan lines. Obama will narrowly win another 4-year term.

Meanwhile, various protests will continue and intensify. Emergence of a third party is very possible, fueled with disillusionment with the establishment and election results.”

Read my original Year 2012 Predictions

As usual, I want to remind everyone that I am a ‘political atheist’ and do not participate in any political party. My predictions and analysis are based on logic, facts, intuition, my knowledge of world cultures and geopolitical trends, long-time experience as financial consultant and investor, and Chinese Theory of Long Cycles.

More about me in ‘About.’

So far: Russia and France voted exactly as I originally predicted on 1/11/12, GOP nominated Romney, and there are clearly 3rd parties emerging in the USA. Two Third Party Presidential debates are being hosted by Larry King and aired by RT America. First debate took place several days ago between 4 alternative party candidates, incl., Green, Constitutional and Libertarian, and is available on Youtube; second debate on foreign policy will air and be posted on Youtube on 10/30. Very educational, by the way, and a great illustration of what’s going on beyond mainstream media. I urge everyone to watch! Check back in a day or two, I might most the Youtube links to both right here, or go to Youtube and do a search. If your cable carries RT America or RT, you can see it on TV.

Watch: First Third Party Presidential Debate 

Upcoming US Presidential Elections: no change from the original 1/11/12 prediction! Obama wins narrowly, with less than 5%, possibly, less than 3% advantage.

It is interesting to note that, while in the USA the vote will be very close, abroad it’s not even a contest between the two candidates. Based on polls from over 20 countries, Romney gets more support only in Pakistan, which is attributed to the Pakistanis’ irritation with deadly drone strikes, not so much to their preference of a specific candidate. Most countries have Romney in single digits, with Western Europe, especially France, favoring Obama by the widest margin.

My prediction: while Obama is far from ideal, no world leader (except, perhaps Israel’s Netanyahu) wants Romney as US President, in fact he scares everyone with his bellicose posturing. Foreign perception is that his rhetoric, lack of reason and restraint (as well as lack of understanding and knowledge of international affairs) would make his presidency into Bush 2.0. By the way, this is also the perception of much of the international investment community – and international investment community is seldom wrong.

It is naive to think that American elections happen in a vacuum. In our globalized and interconnected world, it should not be underestimated how much influence other countries and global community hold over any country’s policy and elections. In fact, I noticed that global opinion (don’t confuse that with the US media propaganda) is the most accurate barometer of presidential election results in any country. For example, international community at large (excluding USA and UK) wanted Russia’s Putin to win (of course, there really was no contest anyway). In France, both the country’s and international perception were against Sarkozy, and sure enough – he lost.

Other interesting cases include Italy’s Berlusconi resignation from his post as Prime Minister (in part due to international pressure), and Hugo Chavez winning recent Venezuelan elections despite his cancer, absence from the political scene, and despite having to compete against a young, strong and very charismatic right-wing candidate. Chavez managed to generate a very broad international support – that’s the secret of his success! Assad of Syria is another prominent example of foreign influence. By the way, I received questions from my readers regarding the future of Assad, as well as the situation in the Middle East at large and I intend to cover it soon in one of the future articles.

P.S. For those who pay attention to astrology: From the astrological perspective, US Elections 2012 are taking place during the start of Mercury Retrograde, infamous among astrologers for introducing confusion, delays and misunderstandings, as well as mistakes in documents and broken machinery/electronics. A friend-astrologer of mine who read my article, just reminded me that the last time the US Elections happened during Mercury Retrograde, in 2000, the confusion resulted in the Supreme Court choosing the winner, George Bush, with controversy continuing to this day. US Presidential Elections on November 6, 2012, may be just as confusing and messy (if not more so), with possible mistakes, lost or contested results. Double check everything while voting.

11/1 Update. This is from my comment (to read more click on ‘comments’):

“To our discussion about the Hurricane Sandy factor: I believe the hurricane will ultimately help Obama, like 9/11 helped Bush. The nation tends to rally behind the President in times of disaster, and the opposing party has no choice but to mute its rhetoric, because the alternative might backfire on that party. I know, this is pretty awful that we need a disaster to feel more united, but here it is.”

Update 11/2: Hurricane Sandy will also temporarily stimulate the economy and the stock market, once more postponing the inevitable recession/depression. Much will have to be rebuilt, and the government will again turn on its virtual printing presses, happily throwing money they don’t have left and right. But the key word here is “temporarily.” No nation in the history of the world could run on debt indefinitely, without having to eventually face the gruesome reality. USA is no exception.

2012 Predictions. Year of Elections: Russia, France – USA next!

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

Okay, time to brag… ;)

So, the Russian and French Presidential Elections are over in the exact way I predicted.

I said back on 1/12/2012 (and reiterated on 3/3) that Vladimir Putin would win another term with low-to-mid 60% of votes because the majority of Russians want stability, which Putin represents, and due to the fact that he and the ruling United Russia party would make all the right moves in the run-up to the elections on March 4. I also said that the allegations of fraud and protests would continue, no matter what.

That’s exactly what happened. United Russia made all the right moves before the elections, allegations of irregularities (most of the time unproven or outright fabrication) and protests are ongoing… and Putin won with 63.6% of votes.

It should be mentioned that the analysts projected him to take the votes in the high fifties. 63.6%, higher than expected, seemed to have surprised and overwhelmed President elect himself and analysts alike.

Putin’s next presidency will be very different from his 2 previous terms in this turbulent decade and in this ever-changing world of ours. I hope to cover the future of Russia, Eurasia, the BRICS and its influence on the direction of the world in one of my subsequent posts.

French Presidential Elections (4/22-5/6/2012) just ended. In my posts of 1/12, 3/3 and 4/28/2012 I predicted that Nicolas Sarkozy would lose the election due to the crisis in the Eurozone, failure of his neocon policies and general dislike the French electorate feels towards him. I also said that in a bizarre twist, socialist Hollande would take part of the far right Marine Le Pen‘s votes, because that would be the only way Hollande could win.

I also said that there would be certain changes to the French domestic and foreign policy, as the country will stop playing the “French Poodle” to the U.S. and will slowly re-aqcuire its more independent stance.

Everything happened in the exact way I predicted. Marine Le Pen, courted by Sarkozy for votes, refused to endorse him. Hollande won narrowly, but convincingly, due to some of her votes. Changes in France’s internal and especially external policies are widely expected, although, as I said, don’t expect too much all at once. It will be gradual and slow and real changes will happen later. Hollande already stated that he wouldn’t be a problem for the fellow left-winger (arguably) Obama – at least in the election year. Heads will likely start rolling in 2013. ;)

Some of the changes in the French policies will affect Eurozone, the BRICS and USA very directly, and I hope to discuss all that in my future predictions, where I’ll also cover German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chances of winning theGerman elections in 2013.

To refresh your memory of my previous posts, where I cover all this in more detail, please read them here:

1/12/2012:  YEAR 2012 PREDICTIONS

3/3/2012:   2012 Predictions Update: Russian Elections

4/28/2012: 2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone

In conclusion:

So what can we expect from  the upcoming U.S. Presidential Elections on 11/6/2012? I predicted on 1/12/2012 that the Republicans would pick Mitt Romney and that Barack Obama would beat him NARROWLY in November. By narrowly I mean no more than 5%. Most likely 3% or less. For more about that, read my earlier predictions above. I am planning a couple of updates later this year, one is entitled, Ron Paul‘s Big Mistake” and another will be posted closer to November. In it, I’ll also discuss the USA and the world after the elections.

I am still hoping to release my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS – AFTER 2012 later in the year, time permitting. I will also try to cover some of my other predictions for this very stormy and unpredictable decade here, on my blog. But, since I have too many predictions, too little time, we’ll see how it goes.

Stay tuned! :)

As a reminder to my readers, I do not belong to any political party and consider myself a political atheist. My analysis is based on observation, logic, intuition and the Ancient Chinese System of Long Cycles (CSLC).

Prediction: 2012 French Elections & Eurozone

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

I am interrupting my GOLD TRAIN BLOG TOUR today for an update on my predictions for the French Presidential Elections, April 22 – May 6, 2012.

On January 12, 2012 I posted YEAR 2012 PREDICTIONS on this blog. Included were the “big three” elections for the so called Year of Elections, namely Russia, France and USA.

Read the original post: Year 2012 Predictions

The Russian Presidential Elections have already taken place on March 4.Vladimir Putin won the elections in the exact way and with the exact percentage of votes I predicted. But I’ll brag about that on another occasion ;)

After all, this post is all about French Elections.

As a reminder to my readers, I do not belong to any political party and consider myself a political atheist. My analysis is based on observation, logic, intuition and the Ancient Chinese System of Long Cycles (CSLC).

Nicolas Sarkozy

So, here’s what I said on January 12, 2012 regarding the incumbent French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his chances to win another term:

“France, Presidential Elections, April 22-May 6, 2012: French President Nicolas Sarkozy, together with Angela Merkel of Germany (whose re-election is not until 2013, and I’ll talk about her chances on another occasion) will do everything in their power to reassure the Europeans and the markets in 2012, and will pull a rabbit out of the hat, if necessary. Watch for various announcements from the Eurozone, directed at flooding the system with cheap money, more bailouts, etc.

However, the Eurozone crisis will deepen, with more countries teetering on the brink of collapse, and French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy.

Openly right wing and considered the only neo-con able to win the election, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.

Again, in case anyone’s wondering, Sarkozy’s Chinese Zodiac sign is the HORSE. Maybe, that’s why the long face. ;)

Just kidding, all you, fabulous Horses, out there! The Horse is a very cool and fortunate sign!”

I have also posted an update on March 3, the day before the Russian Elections, in which I updated my outlook for Putin’s chances, as well as Sarkozy’s outlook.

Here is what I said:

French elections, April 22 – May 6, 2012 – Nicolas Sarkozy.

U.S. State Department code name: Emperor Without Clothes.

At this time, no change in my prediction. He’ll still lose the election – more emphatically so!”

Read the 3/3/12 update: 2012 Predictions Update: Russian Elections

So what’s happening in the French Presidential Elections? So far, it’s playing out exactly as I predicted. Nicolas Sarkozy only received 26.5 percent of votes in the first round and finished a humiliating second for an incumbent. SocialistFrancois Hollande received over 27.5 percent, and far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen, the rising star of French politics, finished third with a surprise 18 percent!

Francois Hollande

In the second round Sarkozy and Hollande will be vying for the votes of the third and fourth finish candidates.

My updated prediction:

In a very funny twist, I am predicting that in the second round socialist Hollande (left) will take some of Marine Le Pen’s (far right) votes, along with the fourth place finisher votes (far left).

Seemingly, it doesn’t make any sense. But: The vote for Hollande is a vote against Sarkozy. This is a protest vote, pure and simple. Because, as I said in my January 2012 prediction: “[Sarkozy is] deeply disliked in his country and [that’s why he] will lose.” The French simply don’t want another five years with him.

In addition to Sarkozy’s ineffectual domestic policies and his foreign policy that is both too America-centered and too bellicose for the liking of the French electorate, there is also another reason. As mentioned before, the crisis in the EU continues to deepen and that spells disaster for the incumbent Euro leaders. So far, 9 governments have been ousted due to the European crisis, including Greek, Italian and Dutch. There are more to come. For Sarkozy, this spells the perfect storm.

CONCLUSION:

On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election (which, based on his reaction after the first round has been a surprise only to him, but no one else). 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. There will be SOME change in the French attitude towards the EU and Eurozone. However, I wouldn’t expect TOO MUCH of a change at this time. Real change will come later, but predictions about that – in another post.

Some change to the emigration policy from the poor countries, which is a big problem in many European countries, as well as in Russia. 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.

General Charles De Gaulle

In conclusion, I also want to mention that 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.

Marine Le Pen

In that case, Marine Le Pen, the rising star of the French politics, emphisizing pride in France, its roots and culture; anti-emigration and inti-war policies, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.

The next 2012 Predictions update is coming in May, after the French elections.

Stay tuned!

Russia Votes: Crash Course in Russian Politics

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

Russia will be voting for the country’s new president on Sunday, March 4, 2012.

 

Because of the Russian electoral rules, one cannot use poll numbers several days before the elections. Currently in effect: moratorium on promoting specific candidates to avoid influencing the voters.

As a reminder to my readers, I do not belong to any political party and consider myself a political atheist. My analysis is based on observation, logic, intuition and the Ancient Chinese System of Long Cycles (CSLC).

The Russian political scene is changing rapidly as a record number of citizens take part in protests and demonstrations, both for and against various candidates. Historically speaking, this level of activism is unusual for Russia. Well, apart from the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution and the 1990-93 USSR dissolution period. Most other times in Russian history, the population wasn’t that active politically.

Russian protests differ substantially from the Arab Spring, US Occupy movement, Greek, Spanish, British and other European protests, because they are NOT economically driven. Russians have not experienced a cut in pay or unemployment. In fact, salaries and standard of living have been steadily and substantially rising for the past decade. This activism is driven by a desire to see more change, better and faster reforms, as well as ‘the Putin fatigue.’ As one commentator put it, “It’s media fatigue: people are tired of seeing Putin’s face all over the news.”

I do want to point out that my analysis, based on CSLC, indicates that social and political activism around the world will keep intensifying during this decade. This is true not only for Russia, but for the vast majority of countries, including most of Europe, USA, the Middle East and Asia, as well as – perhaps, to a lesser degree – Latin America, Africa and Australia.

Due to allegations of fraud and ballot stuffing during 2011 Duma (Russian Parliament) elections, over 30,000 Russians have signed up to be anti-fraud monitors during Presidential elections on March 4, 2012.

This year, 5 candidates are eligible to run for the Russian presidency. The remaining contenders were unable to collect the number of signatures required to run.

The winning candidate must receive over 50% of the popular vote or face second round run-off against 2nd place candidate.

CANDIDATES:

Vladimir Putin (Center: Ruling United Russia Party).

Russian President, 2000-2008. Current Prime Minister of the Russian Federation. Still, by far the most popular politician in Russia. United Russia had suffered a substantial “defeat” during 2011 Duma elections. Well, if you consider a defeat getting 49.5% of the votes. But it was a step down from their usual 60-70% approval rate. Besides, they needed 50% in order to maintain a constitutional majority in the Duma. In that sense, the result was quite disappointing.

Putin may have lost some of his support among the more affluent population of Moscow, who ironically benefited most from his and United Russia policies in the past 12 years. But he gained support in the Russian regions. He’s widely projected to win, even by his opponents and detractors. Putin is very feared by the U.S. and some other Western governments, yet supported by most world governments, as well as the international investment community. International investors, as well as the Russian majority, seek stability. And they know, Putin is the only one who can deliver that.

For Putin, it is not as much the issue of winning. It is more how he wins. He needs clean, beyond reproach elections; and a win in the first round to avoid compromising his substantial clout in Russia and abroad.

Vladimir Zhirinovsky (Right/Nationalist: Liberal Democrats).

Speaker of the lower house of the Duma. An old timer in the Russian politics who’s been around since Yeltsin; may have lost some of his original base, but is still popular amongst the young males, especially in the Russian regions. Famous for his loud and often scandalous speeches and behavior, Zhirinovsky enjoys a staunch support base because he often says what others don’t dare due to political correctness.

Gennady Zyuganov (Far left: Communist Party).

The Communists have enjoyed a substantial increase in support in the past year. Nostalgia for the good, old Soviet Union days and low pensions for retirees have aided in Zyuganov’s popularity. Communist party is a very hands-on grassroots organization, members of which go door to door and help each other, as well as the needy, according to the old Soviet tradition. Which also explains the rise in popularity.

Party’s weakness: the Communists have never been good at accounting. To this day, it’s unclear where the money for all the social reforms they are proposing (essentially, the rollback to the Soviet Union) will come from.

Sergey Mironov (Center Left: Fair Russia Party, aka, A Just Russia Party).

Chairman of the Russian Federation Council 2001 – 2011, the Upper House of the Duma. Fair Russia Party has appeal among those voters who are not quite communists, but who would like more social security and government controls. Also, among those who are not quite center.

Mironov has repeatedly proposed an amendment to the Russian constitution that would allow the President to be elected for 3 consecutive 5 or 7 year terms. In 2007, Boris Gryzlov, leader of the rival United Russia party, said that changing the constitution would be unacceptable. Mironov is considered to be more socialism oriented, as he wants to set up special agricultural exchanges for state purchases of agricultural goods and introduce government intervention in regulating prices of basic food stuffs.

Mikhail Prokhorov (Independent).

Russian oligarch, billionaire, Forbes 400, owner of the NY Mets. The only candidate not backed by a party. He commands quite a presence and towers over everyone in the room at close to 7′ of height. Prokhorov has a pro-business platform and enjoys some support among the rich, the business people and the affluent. Most likely, a negligible factor in these elections.

Based on the current dynamic situation, I will be upgrading my Year 2012 Predictions for the Russian elections. Read an update tomorrow – right here, on Lada Ray Blog.

Prediction: Vladimir Putin and Russian Presidential Elections 2012

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

On 1/11/12, I predicted that Vladimir Putin and United Russia would win Russian Presidential Elections. This is a follow up base don the dynamic situation surrounding these elections. As a reminder to my readers, I do not belong to any political party and consider myself a political atheist. My analysis is based on observation, logic, intuition and the Ancient Chinese System of Long Cycles (CSLC).

Here is the original prediction as it pertains to Russia:

RUSSIA, Presidential Elections, March 4, 2012Vladimir Putin will win easily enough, although, due to the crowded field and according to the Russian electoral rules, he may only get clear majority in the second round. Protests on part of the Communists and assorted opposition will continue, and electoral fraud will be alleged again, whether it took place or not.

However, between now and March, Putin and the ruling United Russia Party will make all the right moves, and Putin will end up securing anywhere between 55 – 68% of the votes. 55% may be way too low. Low to mid 60s is probably the right percentage.

While Russians could afford to play around with the results of the Duma elections in 2011, they’ll treat Presidential Elections much more seriously. Putin means stability, and everyone will remember that. Russian social, economic, political, financial, police and army reforms will continue in a controlled fashion during Putin’s Presidency. I will try to discuss Russia’s future in detail in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.

There is one more, esoteric, reason for Putin’s win: He is a DRAGON, according to his Chinese Zodiac sign. 2012 will be much better for Putin, than 2011, as the power of the Dragon is fully behind him this year! ;)

Read the entire original Year 2012 Predictions

Due to the dynamic situation surrounding the Russian elections, as well as elections in other countries, I decided to post an update. Also, I’ve added CIA/U.S. State Department code names, to illustrate the point and… well, because you’ve got to admit, they are kinda funny. ;)

Russian Elections, March 4, 2012 – Vladimir Putin.

CIA code name: Alpha Dog. U.S. State Department code name for Putin/Medvedev tandem: Batman and Robin. But they might’ve changed that since Wikileaks leaked it. ;)

As predicted, Putin and United Russia made all the right moves in the run up to the elections. Putin published a series of articles outlining his vision for Russia’s future; new finance and economic reforms have been announced; more social benefits have been promised; he held his very popular annual televised live Q&A, which lasted a record 5 and a half hours; the rules for protests have been loosened up to accommodate the larger than usual number of people on the streets. Essentially, all protests have been automatically sanctioned – a big departure from old rules – as long as they were peaceful.

As a result, I am upgrading my prediction: Putin will win in the first round. There will be NO run-off. He will get anywhere between low 60% to mid 60% of the popular vote. Could be as high as 67-68%.

Also, read my new post: Russia Votes: Crash Course in Russian Politics

French elections, April 22 – May 6, 2012 – Nicolas Sarkozy.

U.S. State Department code name: Emperor Without Clothes.

At this time, no change in my prediction. He’ll still lose the election – more emphatically so!

U.S. Elections, November 6, 2012 – Barack Obama.

I guess we’ll never know Obama’s CIA/State Department code names, will we? But I can tell you that Russians call him: the Black Gorbachev ;)

No change in my prediction – Obama will narrowly win 2012 elections.

Year 2012 Predictions

Year 2012 Predictions

What qualifies me to predict the future? In the past decade, I taught a number of my proprietary Feng Shui courses and did lots of consultations, in addition to writing about Feng Shui and spirituality for various publications around the world. As part of my speaking and writing, I made predictions about certain events in society and our lives, as well as advised clients on various real estate and investment-related matters.

My various predictions usually came true. As a quick example, I sold my own real estate property in 2005 – at the top – and advised my clients to do the same. Those, who followed my advice, cashed in very nicely. To find out more about me, check out my bio.

My predictive methodology is complex and consists of several parts.

  1. As a former financial consultant with Smith Barney (Citigroup,) I understand the market movements.
  2. Having lived in various countries, under various social systems, including socialism and capitalism, and having observed and studied the geopolitical mechanisms that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as those in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America, I understand the driving forces in the world today.
  3. I also draw on Western Astrology, which, together with other predictive methods, is a great tool.
  4. Feng Shui, especially the Theory of Five Elements, along with Chinese Astrology,  is also helpful.
  5. An important element in my predictions is the powerful Oriental System of Long Cycles, very little known, and even less understood today. Feng Shui, in its most profound and true manifestation, shares the same philosophy. I studied this system with revered Hong Kong Masters of Feng Shui. Since space in a blog post is limited, I intend to talk more about it in the upcoming BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.
  6. Last, but not least: While I do not consider myself psychic, although some may beg to differ, in my predictions, I rely heavily on my intuition, which has never let me down.

Without further ado, let’s get to the core of the issue. The Year 2012 is theYear of the Dragon, according to the Chinese system, and it also has been called the Year of Elections. So, what does this year hold in store for us all?

First, something that has been done to death (no pun intended) in books and film: Should we expect the End of the World on 12/21/12?

The short answer is – ABSOLUTELY NOT! The above date, when Earth forms a direct line with the Galactic Center, will be a non-event and will go absolutely unnoticed by most humans. Some may feel more emotional and high strung, but it could be because these people are feeling the nervousness of others around them. However, the world will keep spinning, and life on Earth will go on.

The long answer is more complex. There are very powerful, LONG TERM changes at work. Those of us who are currently involved with, say, Indie Publishing, or Social Media, and some other areas, are actually at the forefront of these changes.

Suffice it to say that humanity is going through a massive transformation of consciousness, which will last for the foreseeable future, and at times, may be painful and confusing.

But these changes are gradual, although some manifestations are visible in cataclysms and events of today. Examples include: Japanese tsunami and Fukushima disaster, Gulf of Mexico oils spill, the Occupy Movement, Egypt Revolution, US/Europe Economic Problems, The BRICS, Kindle and Indie Publishing Revolution and many others.

Please read more about these events and changes in my upcoming books: THE EARTH SHIFTER (a fantasy/thriller) and BOOK OF PREDICTIONS (non-fiction.)

For more about my books, please visit: LadaRay.com

What to expect in the YEAR OF THE DRAGON? How does it differ from the other years of the Chinese Zodiac?

Year of the Dragon is considered one of the most powerful years for business and innovation. It ushers in more Yang – aggressive, assertive – energy, than almost any other year in the 12-year Chinese Zodiac cycle. Therefore, this year we should expect new developments in various revolutionary and alternative technologies. By the way, fellow Indie authors, this could be the year for you!

In general, starting your business is considered especially auspicious during the Year of the Dragon. This year will also be good for anything alternative.

On the other hand, the Year of the Dragon could signify more turmoil in both social and political spheres, as well as in nature. Sorry to say, natural, as well as man-made disasters won’t subside.

Read more about the powerful Dragon in my tomorrow’s post, right here, on Lada Ray Blog!

2012 is called THE YEAR of ELECTIONS, with something like 40 countries going to the polls to elect new Heads of State. This includes the big three: Russia, USA and France.

My friends will tell you that I could talk for hours about geopolitics, but due to the confines of the blog space, I’ll be brief and discuss the big three. Also, just to mention, I am a ‘political atheist’ and do not participate in any political party. My analysis is based on logic, facts, intuition, Chinese Astrology and Theory of Long Cycles.

I will go with plus 2, minus 1.

RUSSIA, Presidential Elections, March 4, 2012Vladimir Putin will win easily enough, although, due to the crowded field and according to the Russian electoral rules, he may only get clear majority in the second round. Protests on part of the Communists and assorted opposition will continue, and electoral fraud will be alleged again, whether it took place, or not.

However, between now and March, Putin and the ruling United Russia Party will make all the right moves, and Putin will end up securing anywhere between 55 – 68% of the votes. 55% may be way too low. Low to mid 60s is probably the right percentage.

While Russians could afford to play around with the results of the Duma elections in 2011, they’ll treat Presidential Elections much more seriously. Putin means stability, and everyone will remember that. Russian social, economic, political, financial, police and army reforms will continue in a controlled fashion during Putin’s Presidency. I will try to discuss Russia’s future in detail in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.

There is one more, esoteric, reason for Putin’s win: He is a DRAGON, according to his Chinese Zodiac sign. 2012 will be much better for Putin, than 2011, as the power of the Dragon is fully behind him this year! ;)

USA, Presidential Elections, November 6, 2012: Republicans will pick Romney, who is perceived as the man of the middle, and therefore, appears a safe bet. And Romney will NOT beat Obama. Because, as one rapper said, speaking at Occupy Wall Street, “Obama is ten times the campaigner, as he is the President.” The rapper, whose name I won’t mention here, added, “And I mean it as a compliment, Mr. President!”

In short, USA will remain sharply divided along partisan lines. Obama will narrowly win another 4-year term.

Meanwhile, various protests will continue and intensify. Emergence of a third party is very possible, fueled with disillusionment with the establishment and election results.

What happens during Obama’s second term is another story altogether, and I’ll  discuss it later in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS, as well.

Ah, yes, in case anyone’s wondering, Barack Obama’s Chinese Zodiac sign is the OX, considered along with the Dragon, one of the most powerful signs. Obama is in good company here, as the Ox is the sign of a world leader and can also be rather charismatic. He shares it, infamously, with Saddam Hussein. But also, with Margaret Thatcher, Princess Diana and Jane Fonda. ;)

France, Presidential Elections, April 22-May 6, 2012: French President Nicolas Sarkozy, together with Angela Merkel of Germany (whose re-election is not until 2013, and I’ll talk about her chances on another occasion) will do everything in their power to reassure the Europeans and the markets in 2012, and will pull a rabbit out of the hat, if necessary. Watch for various announcements from the Eurozone, directed at flooding the system with cheap money, more bailouts, etc.

However, the Eurozone crisis will deepen, with more countries teetering on the brink of collapse, and French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy. Openly right wing and considered the only neo-con, able to win the election, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.

Again, in case anyone’s wondering, Sarkozy’s sign is the HORSE. Maybe, that’s why the long face. ;) Just kidding, all you, fabulous Horses, out there! The Horse is a very cool and fortunate sign!

Wishing you a terrific and auspicious Year of the Dragon! Please like and comment to let me know what you think about my predictions!

P.S. On 1/13/12, only two days after I posted my prediction about Sarkozy losing the French elections, S&P downgraded French debt, stripping it of it’s coveted AAA rating. France was downgraded along with 8 other Eurozone countries. This move, as analysts unanimously agree, spells disaster for Sarkozy in the upcoming elections. And it also signals that the Eurozone problems are bound to intensify this year.

Update 10/28/12:

Russia and France voted exactly as I originally predicted on 1/11/12, GOP nominated Romney, and there are clearly 3rd parties emerging in the USA. Two Third Party Presidential debates are being hosted by Larry King and aired by RT America (First debate took place several days ago and is available on Youtube; second – foreign policy – debate will air and be posted on Youtube on 10/30).

Upcoming US Presidential Elections: no change from the original 1/11/12 prediction! Obama wins narrowly, with less than 5%, possibly less than 3% advantage.

It is interesting to note that, while in the USA the vote will be very close, abroad it’s not even a contest. Based on multiple surveys and polls from over 20 countries, Romney gets more support only in Pakistan, which is attributed to the Pakistanis’ irritation with deadly drone strikes, not so much to their preference of a specific candidate. Most countries have Romney in single digits, with Western Europe, especially France, favoring Obama by the widest margin.

My prediction: while Obama is far from ideal, no world leader (except, perhaps Israel’s Netanyahu) wants Romney as US President, in fact he scares everyone with his bellicose posturing. Foreign perception is that his angry rhetoric, lack of reason and restraint would make his presidency into Bush 2.0. By the way, this is also perception of much of the international investment community – and international investment community is seldom wrong.

It is naive to think that American elections happen in a vacuum. In our globalized and interconnected world, it should not be underestimated how much influence other countries and global community hold over any country’s policy and elections. In fact, I noticed that global opinion is the most accurate barometer of presidential election results in any country. For example, the international community at large (excluding USA and UK) wanted Putin to win (of course, there was really no contest anyway). In France, both the country and international perception were against Sarkozy, and sure enough – he lost.
