The #RioOlympics are over, and #RioParalympics are about to start. But the most important result of the Games is not the spectacular wins of deserving athletes or the triumph of the spirit of friendly competition, as intended by the International Olympic Charter. No, it’s the ugly and exceptional in its viciousness hybrid war against Russia.
Russian Rio Paralympians ban: the latest
While about two-thirds of the original Russian Olympic team were at least allowed to compete in Rio, Russian Paralympic team was banned altogether. SAC, the Swiss sports arbitrage court, upheld the ban. While there is hope yet for the IOC (as Russians think), the IPC is dominated by pro-NWO, anti-Russian British/US members.
I hate to say this, but I did tell you so. They wouldn’t have let Russian paralympians off the hook once they got them. The goal is to humiliate Russia, while orchestrating a display of perceived weakness of the Russian government, timed just before the Russian Duma elections on September 18, 2016. The ultimate target is the Russian presidential election of 2018. The ultimate directive is to weaken Putin and try to sabotage his re-election. If Ukraine didn’t work, If Syria and Turkey projects failed, if oil prices, ruble sabotage and sanctions have flopped, sport is what’s left for them to work with. Sport turned out to be that proverbial final frontier in the hybrid 4D warfare against Russia.
Incidentally, Russian paralympic team won with stellar result in both London and Sochi. When some can’t win honestly, they eliminate the competition.
I have to say that Russians missed this, like they missed Ukraine. Just like in the case of Ukraine, Russians simply couldn’t fathom that anyone could stoop this low.
In the fight to preserve the failing Anglo-American Empire and what’s left of the fading ‘US full spectrum dominance’ there is simply no limit as to how low they will stoop. This has to be understood fully. Instead of abandoning the failed model and moving forward with the entire world, the lowly beings that are behind all this will fight for as long as they are allowed to get away with it; in a typical way of all bandits and criminals they’ll try to slow down the process of the collapse or take everyone down with them.
Russian PM Medvedev announced that Russia has withdrawn her financial support of WADA, for now till the end of 2016.
Russian government is also filing civil lawsuits for damages against IAAF (Intl Athletic Federation), WADA and IPC (Intl. Paralympic Committee). Individual claims for damages by each athlete are coming too.
My take on this: sure, go ahead and file lawsuits. There will be compensation, probably pretty good one. But it’ll take years and the process of paying out said compensation will be slowed down to a crawl. This is a good thing to do, since lawsuits are dreaded by any organization in the West. But this really is a stop-gap measure. It isn’t a real solution because those who did this were after something much bigger than breaking the lives of poor Russian athletes: they were after the big score in the global political game. They are attempting to prolong the very survival of the dying US Empire. What’s a trifle like a few tens, or even hundred million dollars here and there when you are in the Grand Chess Game.
During the Rio Games Russian poll vaulter Elena Isinbayeva was elected to IOC by the majority vote of the Rio Olympic athletes. This is a stunning result since the two-time Olympic champion and multiple-time world champion Isinbayeva, who never was implicated in any drug scandals and who just came off her maternity leave to return to the Olympics, is now under blanket ban by IAAF and WADA, along with all Russian track-and-field team.
Why was she elected then? Isinbayeva was indignant at the ban and she promised to sue. This was, let’s just say, a bribe of sorts to appease her, a consolation prize for one of the most famous athletes of the last few decades. This was also a small bone thrown to Russia. It is a sort of IOC’s olive branch and a way to signal that IOC is not fully condoning IAAF/IPC/WADA actions.
Since most of IOC and individual sports federations were against the blanket ban, Russians would attempt to continue working with them. The exceptions are track-and-field IAAF and the intl. heavy lifting and rowing federations, plus, partially, swimming federation. While Russians will try to work with them for a while, this again is a stop-gap measure.
I said previously that drastic moves to change the corrupt nature of the sports and Olympics will be done by Russia later, most likely after 2018. For now, Russia will be on the defensive and strictly on response mode.
Sport = the money making machine
The most important feature of today’s international sport, based on Western, and lately almost exclusively on US capitalism principles is that it is 100% profit based. Some of the numbers I’ve seen quoted (verification?) are: IOC takes in $400 bln every Olympics. IOC (and IPC in case of Paralympics) owns all the rights. Profits are shared with the host country and various industries. Pharmaceutical and sports medicine industry alone take in $100 bln. Media takes in another chunk.
Incidentally, as I predicted, Rio Olympics were quite a fiasco from the profit standpoint, among others. It has been the only Olympics of the past couple decades to lose money due to empty seats.
Patrick Hickey (Rio tickets scandal: Patrick Hickey and Kevin Mallon share Rio prison), who was a member of IOC and Head of the European Olympic Committee was arrested with the accusation of peddling tickets at several times the price. He was blamed for singlehandedly making Rio seats empty.
Please, what hogwash! No one person has such power, no matter how well-connected. How did I predict a month in advance that Rio Olympics would experience viewer boycott problems? I did so because I clearly saw where the energy was moving due to the banning of the Russia team and due to ousting of Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff and scandalous humiliation of Lula da Silva. Where you are going there you are – basic karmic law.

HISTORY REPEATS! VERY TIMELY TODAY! My June 30, 2015 post: Baku 2015 1st European Games (Putin and Erdogan about EU)
While I can believe there may have been a collusion to sell tickets at triple the price, any ticket will only sell for as much as the market will bear. Therefore, one has to be pretty stupid to ask for something no one’s willing to pay. How stupid was Patrick Hickey? I don’t think he was at all. Incidentally, he is Irish, which is significant.
My conclusion: at the very minimum, a scapegoat was needed to justify empty seats, and Patrick Hickey became such convenient scapegoat.
But there’s more. This piece of intel comes from a Russian sports journalist who has been to 13 Olympics and who knows everyone in the business: in the wake of the Russian doping scandal, he asked around who at IOC was most pro-Russian and against the blanket ban. Everyone pointed to Patrick Hickey, then Head of the European Olympics Committee. Here’s your explanation. The Hickey Rio scandal to me smells just as bad as the FIFA/Joseph Blatter scandal, or the Strauss Khan scandal. If Patrick Hickey was any younger than his 71 and had a reputation of a playboy, they’d get him through a hot Brazilian maid.
The future of Sports and Olympics: poorly built structures will crumble during the Great Earth Shift
The Olympic and Big Sport based solely on profit and lucrative endorsements is something that won’t work going forward. The same is true for every area of human earthly life, which has become corrupted or outdated.
My view is that both Olympics and Paralympics are dead, it’s just that Paralympics is more obviously dead than Olympics, which is still trying to pretend it’s business as usual and resist the inevitable. However, Olympics is an outdated 20th century structure. During this Great Earth Shift all outmoded and poorly built structures, designed to uphold the world order that existed in the 20th century, will be either completely destroyed so the new could be built in their stead, or they’ll be morphed into something better corresponding with new times. So, those who hang on to the Olympic structure – don’t. International sports competitions will remain, while the rotten structures around them will crumble. The fact that we are experiencing all these scandals is only indicative of the fact that the process is underway and it’s only the matter of time for changes to occur.
I pointed out previously that the only way to resolve this is for Russia to organize her own Eurasian Games, or Friendship Games, or to resurrect the alternative Good Will Games, while abandoning the Olympics. My prediction: Russians won’t pull the plug or make many drastic moves before 2018, it being a pivotal year in human development.
And even then, Russians will be very careful not to upset the balance too much. My opinion: Olympics are dead and should be transformed into something better and more forward-looking. Russians intend to work with IOC, because Thomas Bach and many IOC members voted against Russian ban, not allowing IAAF and Americans to dictate to them what to do. Incidentally, two Ukrainian members of IOC, who both are former Soviet Olympic champions from Kiev, voted against banning the Russian team.
Rio Olympics results and lessons
The International Olympics Committee has some redeeming values and there are quite a few members of IOC that are Russia’s friends or temporary allies. Same is true for the majority of individual international sports federations. For this reason alone about two-thirds of the Russian team were still able to compete in Rio and actually win quite a few medals, considering the severely eroded team. Russia was fourth in all-around, after US, UK and China.
I will leave aside the full analysis of the results of the top three. I’ll just briefly note that Olympics is just like a beauty pageant: best way to win is to poison your competition.
Another recipe for success is to cut to the bone, or eliminate altogether, sports in which your competitor is the strongest, such as Rhythmic Gymnastics (correct name in Russian: Artistic Gymnastics). Rhythmic Gymnastics has been cut to the very bone and only 1 team and 1 individual all-around event are allowed. Where are individual events? Why does regular Gymnastics (called in Americanese incorrectly: ‘Artistic Gymnastics’) allow individual events, while its Rhythmic sister doesn’t? You’ll be shocked how simple the answer is: in ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ US planned to achieve top result – and did, while in Rhythmic Gymnastics US is nowhere near top ten.
This may be obvious, but here’s a rhetorical question: what’s so ‘artistic’ about the Rio ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ all-around winner Simone Biles. Sorry for bringing another strange thing up, but as a woman myself I can’t help but wonder: do women ever naturally look like this without a great deal of external help? And this girl is a young teenager! As you know, in my previous pieces on Olympics I asked the same question about another American phenom Serena Williams, commonly known as ‘the steroid sister.’
Serena Williams standing next to her closest competitor Russian Maria Sharapova. Both are world’s top tennis players on approximately the same level of fitness; both have been in sport for a long time. As they say, find the crucial difference in their appearance. Who is more likely to dope of the two? Meanwhile, Sharapova is under a 2-year ban for using the internationally recognized neutral placebo Meldonium, while Williams, who successfully evaded being tested for years, was in Rio enjoying herself. Incidentally, the reason she lost in the very first game to an obscure Ukrainian player is because this time she couldn’t risk it and stopped using steroids early on, which got her to Rio on a massive down swing. When Williams lost to the Ukrainian girl, the sold out Ukrainian government and various Kiev officials were apologizing to the US for their athlete besting the famous Williams! Below, read more on how badly Kiev treats its athletes and what will come out of it pretty soon.
Simone Biles, all-around ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ Rio Olympics gold medalist. Artistic, graceful and womanly are decidedly NOT the words I’d use while looking at her! This kind of result (and she is a mere teenager too!) can only be achieved through a long-term use of heavy steroids. Hmm.. Lots more could be said looking at this picture… But yes, in case you didn’t know, the US team is clean and beyond reproach, while Russians dope with over-the-counter placebo called Meldonium and should not be allowed anywhere near the ‘clean’ Olympics.
Any doubts at all she is a woman? Simone Biles’ competitor, Russian gymnast, Rio Olympics gold, silver & bronze medalist Aliya Mustafina:
Previously, there was an attempt to eliminate wrestling from the Olympics – THE original Olympic sport! The attempt failed after an international outcry. Why wrestling had to be eliminated? Very simple: there are quite a few wrestling medals at stake and Russians usually sweep up the gold.
Incidentally, the persistent rumor in Rio was that US swimming team (as well as other individual sports US teams) didn’t let any WADA doping testers into their compound and chased them away with threats, if any dared to show up. Of course it was the US swimming team, with its million and a half events, that brought US MOST gold medals. Soon, they will invent twenty and ten meter events in all four strokes, so they could continue hugging podiums in the future fake Olympics. As an ex-competitive swimmer myself, I am officially disgusted – will have to go and shower after I finish this article. Of course it helps greatly when you ban top Russian swimmers and relentlessly mock and put down the remaining members of the Russian team. It’ll be hard to forget the disgraceful way US gold and bronze medalists refused to shake Russian silver medalist Yulia Efimova’s hand while on the podium.
I have to say that Russian athletes pulled a miracle in Rio, despite being under constant psychological pressure and attack, amid humiliation and anti-Russian hysteria. Russian teams in various sports arriving in Rio were denied entry into the Olympic Village, where Russia paid in advance for the entire building to house its team. They were forced to move from one hotel to another, without access to training facilities, awaiting the decision whether they would be let inside. The same swimmer Yulia Efimova was forced to prepare for competition in a hotel paddling pool, amidst sweaty bodies of fat tourists and screaming children! And still, Russia managed this result:
Olympic Games Rio 2016
Finally, the sure recipe for the US and UK success! Yet another great way to win is to fill to the brim the Olympic schedule with the events you are good at, but your top competitors aren’t. In other words with things that hardly are real sports in the Olympic sense, such as golf and equestrian. And make sure you have a million medals in such sports as swimming, rowing and track and field, while at the same time banning your competition – and voila! You have the double of anyone else’s medals.
But how much are such fake medals worth?
Russian and Ukrainian athletes in Rio embrace and celebrate victories together
During Rio Games, the internet got flooded with pictures of Russian and Ukrainian athletes hugging and carrying signs of friendship. Just can’t resist posting some of them, because in my view they celebrate the true spirit of Olympics, the way it should be. And they also reflect the true attitude of normal Ukrainians towards Russians:
Compare this to US swimmers’ snubbing of the Russian Efimova on the podium.
And here’s official Kiev’s reaction to all this hugging and mutual celebrating. Kiev officials branded these Ukrainian athletes ‘traitors to Ukraine.’ They threatened to pull their financing and state support. There were ugly threats of bodily harm and other hysteria. Who treats this way one’s country’s athletes? We all know that the Kiev junta is in fact Idiocracy plus. We also know that the only reason the Kiev regime is still around is because US and EU prop it up. I can tell you what the outcome of such attitude will be: many Ukrainian athletes have already moved to Russia. Now even more Ukrainian Olympians will ask for asylum and/or citizenship in Russia.
Who really is the doper?
If Russians dope and Americans are clean, why are Russians best in sports that don’t benefit from doping?
Why are Americans best at sports that benefit most from doping?
Sports that benefit greatly from doping: track and field and swimming (think Michael Phelps). Sports that don’t benefit at all from doping: rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming. These also happen to be the most beautiful sports where Russians traditionally dominate. To complete this post I thought I’d add these striking videos:
“The Aliens” Rio gold, five-time Olympic champions, plus multiple world champions Ishchenko & Romashina, synchronized swimming duo. This video is from World Champs, Kazan 2015 (Синхронное Плавание ДУЭТ ПАРЫ Россия Золото ИНОПЛАНЕТЯНЕ Ищенко Ромашина ЧМ Казань 2015)
Russian synchronized swimming team event, Rio gold (Russia dominates here for decades):
Beautiful routine compilation by Yana Kudryavtseva, considered the queen of rhythmic gymnastics. 8-time World champion and Olympic gold medalist, but only silver in Rio Olympics. She lost gold to the rising star, fellow Russian Margarita Mamun.
This is not from Olympics, but I really wanted to include this amazing sports gymnastics routine, which is a treat for the eyes. The title of this video is “Just look what these Russians are doing.”
Forgot to mention that out of 270 Russian athletes that were allowed to compete in Rio, 103 Russian athletes came home with medals!
