FULL Earth Shift/Great Balancer Russia-China Boost: Xi Receives Putin with Unheard of Honors Ahead of SCO Summit (NEW EARTH SHIFT PREDICTION!)
I would like my FuturisTrendcast subscribers to get a taste of what my PATREON PATRONS are getting on a regular basis! Enjoy this timely FULL ARTICLE!
Jun 9 at 11:11am
The 18th SCO Summit is scheduled for June 9 to 10 in Qingdao in east China’s Shandong Province.
Ahead of the SCO Summit Putin has arrived in China for a state visit, to be received by President Xi with unheard of fanfare and honors. The lavish parade and fireworks, red carpets throughout and Russian music — all that went beyond and above any diplomatic etiquette for such type of visits, especially considering how often Putin and Xi meet.
This confirms what I have told you in my LATEST PROPHETIC ARTICLE: The Global Fight for Russia and How Trump is Actively Facilitating the Earth Shift
It’s the global fight FOR, not against, Russia all right. And it clearly resonates with my Russia prophecy from the NEW EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES: FORBIDDEN HISTORY & FORGOTTEN ORIGINS!
Several details stood out during Putin’s reception by Xi:
Xi awarded Putin the newly established Order of Friendship, and Putin is the first ever recipient of this Chinese order. Unlike in Russia, where the Order of Friendship existed since Soviet days, it is a first for China. The impression is that this prestigious award was established directly and especially for Putin.
By doing so, China/Xi have underlined and highlighted in thick neon colors, showing the whole world how valuable they consider the close strategic partnership with Russia. And it’s getting closer.
And another striking detail: This lavish greeting of Russia’s leader is happening at the same time the G7 summit is taking place on the other side of the world. It takes time to put such big events together, so I don’t know which of them was planned first, but there is a clear indication that both G7 and Putin’s China visit/SCO Summit were planned to coincide on different sides of the globe, in order to demonstrate certain contrasts!
And what contrasts! Unity and respect in China, vs. total discord on the Western side of the world!
But one thing this G7 summit does have in common with Xi’s reception of Putin. Trump, Italy’s new PM, and before them some EU leaders, raised the same question: it’s time to ‘re-invite Russia back into G7, making it G8 again.
I have discussed the true reasons for this sharp shift in Deep State Lost the Fight vs. Great Balancer! Trump Wants Russia Back in G8, But Does Russia Need It?
Forget sanctions and huffing and puffing. It turns out that after all, Russia the Great Balancer IS sorely missed and needed on both sides of the globe! In other words, the fight for Russia is on!
**And a sweet bonus! Ahead of Putin’s visit an all-China poll came back with stunning result: in China Putin is the world’s most popular politician, enjoying the rock star status.
In other words: it is truly the Time of Russia The Great Balancer, but there is more!
CONSIDER THIS MY NEW EARTH SHIFT PREDICTION!
China is joining Russia as a new GREAT BALANCER, to help facilitate THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT! Sure, China always pursues exclusively its own interests. But in doing so, it is also furthering The Earth Shift.
I will in the future elaborate how this happens and what to expect from China going forward. Stay tuned for more ground-breaking and cutting-edge articles on Patreon!
***COMMENT from Gary:
Lada, by the way I’m heartened to know that one of my favorite personalities, Paul Craig Roberts, is totally on board with Russia’s policy and now understands the strategy of Putin in showing unlimited patience in not being provoked. He was previously unsure of Putin and thought he was too compromising. He says that Putin’s bet that Trump’s aggression will move Europe away from the US is really paying off in spades. Roberts is really for the first time very optimistic and is in line with your thinking. Maybe he’s reading your blog.

In this post, related closely to the article below, I explain the new type or international relations proposed by Russia. I also explain why I call Trump the American Gorbachev and where the US is heading.
LOTS OF HOT/ BREAKING NEWS & ANALYSIS IN THIS POST:
US & Trump, N. Korea, Putin, Lavrov & Russia, EU, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Japan, Nord Stream-2 and new South Stream!
One of the latest is a complete 180 degree turnaround by the West towards Russia – as I predicted back in 2014! A global fight not against, but FOR Russia is on.
Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, has called on the end of the witch hunt against Russia and for the improvement of relations between Russia and EU. The signal is clear; Junker and Brussels politicians go where the wind blows. They’ve been getting pressure to rescind anti-Russian sanction from rebelling members, notably Italy, EU’s third economy. The new Italian coalition, called ‘the friends of Putin’ is in a fight for the control of government against Eurocentric elites.
The biggest fish in the pond, Germany and France, have been switching gears in midair as well – and in a hurry.
Last week Putin received first Merkel, and then at the St. Petersburg Forum, Macron and IMF Chief Christine Lagard. Japan’s PM Abe was also at the forum. So were Chinese deputy PM and the president of Moldova Igor Dodon, who doesn’t miss a single forum.
Trump/US received unusual criticisms from Merkel, Lagard and Macron, while all three made overtures towards Russia. I found IMF Chief Christine Lagard uncharacteristic criticism of the US and Trump especially striking.
Merkel finally found the missing backbone and re-affirmed Germany’s full commitment to Nord Stream-2, which is being completed in a rush manner, despite tremendous pressure from the US.
Macron’s attitude during his state visit was completely uncharacteristic of his intermittent powerplays and strange mancrush behaviors with Trump. He was demure and meticulously respectful towards Russia and Putin. He even tried to be refined, citing Tolstoy’s War and Peace episode during the FRENCH (!) takeover of Moscow, in order to make a point of reconciliation. It almost sounded like a hint: I’ve learned my lesson, big brother, please forgive me… As we know, Napoleon’s takeover of Moscow resulted in absolute devastation of the French army and a hasty retreat out of Russia with few survivors. The end result was the army of Russian Cossacks dining in Paris and inventing for posterity the French bistro (if you don’t know the story, I’ll tell you some day).
Notably: as Putin told Macron during the St. Petersburg Forum panel, if France is afraid that US won’t ‘protect it’ any more, based on Trump’s new policies — no worries, Russia will help. Macron replied meekly that France still has Transatlantic obligations, but also has some of its own military force.
The signs of the US/Trump withdrawing from various treaties and obligations to allies are very visible. The allies are in shock.
As to Trump, he is fulfilling some of his election promises, but what he is not noticing is that by doing so, he is facilitating the Earth Shift (read more in next Patreon post!).
Meanwhile, also consistent with my predictions about the Time of Russia the Great Balancer, pilgrimages of different country leaders to Russia continue and grow.
Not far behind Macron was the PM of Bulgaria Borisov, who visited Putin in Moscow last week. When Putin offered his hand, the big Bulgarian instead rushed to embrace him in a tight bear hug.
Putin responds to Bulgaria PM Borisov hug
This comes as an abrupt and drastic change in Bulgaria’s behavior.
The big question is why?…
LATEST PATREON TESTIMONIALS:
Gary: Hi Lada, I’ve been following you for years and I have to say that this blog entry is one of your finest and timeliest. Since I religiously follow RT and the Vesti english translated excerpts, I already knew of what you speak. But this entry of yours encapsulated all events that are happening recently and summed up really well the extremely positive developments all over the world. You definitely have been vindicated on your Earth Shift theory and although I have strayed off a little at times (thinking Russia is acting too compromising) your continuous promotion and explanation of your Earth Shift theory and Russia as the Great Balancer have kept me on the straight and narrow.
J: Excellent article, Lada! This is all amazing news and I’ve certainly felt the Shift in the air. It’s as if common sense and decency are starting to take the lead. I look forward to your follow-up article!

Eugene commented: Would be great to have your take and latest calibrations of the Korean leaders and denuclearization agreement!
See my Feb 23, 2018 post:
Apr 27, 2018:
This is very good news!
As you recall from my 2/23/18 post on Kim/N.Korea calibrations, the calibrations of Kim were on the 180-150 level, which made me conclude (although to me it was clear without calibrations) that he was neither suicidal, nor a maniac, as the West has portrayed him.
He was shamelessly provoked by Trump and US and he responded in the best way he could, under the circumstances. In the end, it was N. Korea and Kim’s victory over Trump.
Let me repeat this: the young Kim and tiny N. Korea upped the stakes and didn’t back down till huge US and the old bully Trump had no choice but to back down. The score is 1:0 for Kim and against Trump – yet another sign of the empire in decline.
Yes I know, Trump tried to save face by saying that it was his tough position and threat to use force that made Kim relent and begin negotiations.
In reality, anybody who’s anybody knows that the painstaking negotiations were happening behind the scenes between N. Korea and China, as well as Russia, and of course, S. Korea. These negotiations and smart shuttle diplomacy ensured that the super-bully US failed at starting WWIII.
Before and during S. Korean Olympics, S. Korea made absolutely sure they treated N. Korea with utmost respect and deference. They invited N. Koreans to the games and even played certain team sports as a unified team.
In the end, it was clear that N. Korea simply wanted to be noticed and acknowledged, that they tired of being treated as pariah and wanted to be a part of the global community, which was denied to them for decades by the US/West. They also wanted some assurances of their safety, as well as trade and food, in response to dropping their nuclear ambitions.
Once they received all these assurances – from China, S. Korea and Russia, NOT from the US – the peace process could begin.
Again, let me reiterate that Kim and N. Korea calibrate between Pride and Fear. On these levels you want to be noticed and recognized, and you also want assurances. What Trump/US was doing by threatening N/ Korea had the opposite effect. Meanwhile, S. Korea’s invitation to participate in the Olympics went a long way and it impressed Kim and N. Koreans. It spoke to them of sincerity and readiness to work together.
That’s what opened the doors, NOT Trump’s crazy and juvenile nuclear war threats!
Let’s calibrate CURRENT PEACE TALKS between 2 Koreas:
QC 280 – NEUTRALITY / FRIENDLINESS
CHI 200 – COURAGE
Excellent improvement! Just compare to what the relationships between the 2 was in the past 10 years, up till the beginning of 2018!
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH KOREAS (2008-beginning of 2018):
QC 85 – GRIEF
CHI 90 – GRIEF
There is much promise in these new historic talks, but not because of the US – despite it!
Of course this is just the first step and I can see how the US/Dark State may soon attempt to restart animosities and threats towards N. Korea…
You might say that the US is also a guarantor. And I would say that I would trust CHINA/RUSSIA guarantees, but distrust absolutely any US guarantees. To me US guarantees mean a grand total of zero and I’m sure many counties feel the same way.
Do you want to know how N. and S. Koreas REALLY feel about the US? Let’s calibrate…

LADA RAY’S NEW ANALYTICAL PIECE! As Predicted! Global Power Shift: Russia and China Forge Even Closer Alliance!
What a huge mistake Trump has made with his strike against Syria and this faux pas will cost him in the long run! As I predicted since 2016: his straitjacket and pressure from Dark State wouldn’t let him behave any other way. Whichever way he turns – more problems and no good solutions.
After Trump’s Syria disaster the US Congress is considering taking away from the president the nuclear ‘red button’ and his ability to decide unilaterally where and when to strike.
Need I mention that Skripal/Salisbury false flag completely fell apart on its masterminds, and this is only the beginning. There is more to the story, to do with Brexit trouble (ALSO 100% AS I PREDICTED HERE!) and May’s tenure, vs. Jeremy Corbyn. I’ll talk about it soon as well – stay tuned for PATREON post.
Meanwhile, US allies start furtively looking for favors elsewhere, most notably in Russia, while on the surface pretending to go along with the US. Germany and Merkel are good examples of that. I’ll have a separate analytical post on that in the future.
To say that Trump/US/UK/France’s dangerously frivolous attitude towards bombing other countries has scared many countries, is to say nothing. Turkey and Iran are thrown closer to Russia due to USA/Trump’s behavior, and even Israel is not quite sure where to turn next.
But the biggest fish in the pond, China, is now totally convinced where to look for allies.
The Russia – China mega-alliance has been in the cards for years, and I wrote about it many times. But after US/UK/France misadventure in Syria, there is a very strong drive in China to get as close to Russia as possible. Make no mistake: China is furious and very weary of the US and Trump after his tantrums in regards to Syria and N. Korea.
As you know, I have predicted that RUSSIA THE GREAT BALANCER will continue gradually rebalancing the global power away from the US/West and towards the East, as we go through THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
These predictions were first made in 2012 and expanded on in 2014, as well as in 2015-17. We are observing how they come true in front of our very eyes!
On PATREON I plan a new series, where I’ll go over my many predictions and how they came/coming (or not) true. I will also analyze the latest most important global and Earth Shifting developments, and make new important predictions. To take advantage of all this new bonanza of intel, analysis and predictions, follow me on Patreon — if you haven’t yet!

Eurasia: the New Global Axis of Power Has Formed (Russia, Iran, Turkey + China)!
I’d been talking about this since 2014-2015. The big events happening in the Middle East are certainly a part of the GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
Revisit my prior post for links to relevant ESRs, with detailed intel, analysis and predictions: Goodbye US and NATO? Putin and Erdogan sign nuclear mega-deal and agree on fast S-400 delivery. Remember, that my ESRs and ESWs never duplicate each other! All material is new and unique!
At the same time as the above Putin-Erdogan deals were signed, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani was also there, and the joint statement by Russia, Turkey and Iran was made. As one of our FT followers, Gary, just mentioned in a very poignant comment, “The whole events in Turkey are just breathtaking in their historical importance.”
The statement issued by the three is affirmation of the territorial integrity of Syria, and of the fact that the war in Syria must end.
A Vesti video with the joint statement:
Essentially, what we see here is that the US and West are slowly bus surely being squeezed out of the Middle East, as the new alliance of powers is taking hold. I talked about it in detail and explained much in my interview:
A NEW TSAR ARRIVED: HOW PUTIN IS SQUEEZING THE US OUT OF THE NEW MIDDLE EAST

Going back to the main topic:
I want to stress that this is a BALANCED alliance, taking into account the many interests and intricacies of the region! This is in stark contrast to the imbalanced and one-sided previous Western dominance.
The fact that such different three powers managed to get together and form such an unlikely coalition is epic. The driving power and the unifying factor behind this new, unthinkable before alliance is Russia The Great Balancer. I wrote about it in ESR13, and other Turkey/Syria ESRs.
It is clear that none of this would have been possible without Russia. What we have here is a vivid demonstration of the demonstration of how The Great Balancer works.
The 2017 Russia-Turkey-Iran summit in Sochi, where the framework for the new deal was developed, is already dubbed the second Yalta. (In 1945, near the close of WWII, three then world powers gathered in Yalta to outline the post WWII global structure, which is crumbling today, as we are progressing through the Earth Shift.)
Add to that China…

I thought you all may find it interesting! This is something our friend Akaida (Masaki Miyagawa) shared with me. Akaida lives in LA and is associated with the music and movie scenes there; he keeps in touch with their inner workings and developments.
In EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOD 8 PREDICTIONS we dedicated a whole segment to addressing the predictions on Silicon Valley and Hollywood. You recall that I specifically said that Hollywood is in decline, and will continue declining. At the same time, I singled out the rising film and TV industries of Canada, India and China. One of the ways this is developing is that Hollywood now uses Chinese or other countries’ production facilities and sets, special effects and design teams, as well as actors from third countries, in their films. One of the reasons: the cost of production is very significantly lower. Another — main reason — the decline of the West, and specifically, of California as the locomotive of the West.
(I should also mention UK, with its long-standing tradition of excellent theater and TV series, as well as lower actor salaries. UK is another alternative, taking away more and more content, viewership and acting jobs from Hollywood and US TV sitcoms.)
But all the above aside, the film industry of China is developing on its own, by leaps and bounds. And they are just warming up. In fact, the rising middle class and with that, the rising national pride and self-identification of the Chinese pushes the development of the movie industry to new heights.

Hi Lada, congrats on the last Q&A, your predictions are becoming confirmed by the day.
Saw this Facebook post, thought you would find it interesting.
I went to high school with Feng Zhu (see below), he went to Art Center in LA, got into 3D modeling, game design, and later special effects for movies such as the Star Wars reboot. He also started his own animation school in Singapore, and now is targeting the Chinese Film Market. His parents were professors from Beijing, so he’s well positioned to do what he’s doing.
For the past year, I’ve been quietly working, studying and building networks in the China film industry. There is no question that the next frontier in film making will take place here in Beijing.
China’s film landscape today is reminiscent of the Hollywood’s IP explosion between the mid-1980s to late 1990s. During this period, there were a wide range of directors putting forth movies that literally shaped our imaginations. The same is now taking place in China domestically. Investors are scouring Beijing for scripts, directors, producers and teams which can make it all happen.
Golden opportunities like this don’t strike often. Virtually every aspect of film making is undergoing major transformations and there’s a huge demand for talent across all areas.
I’ve always wanted to scratch that director itch. For the past 20 years, concept design allowed me to create worlds. Now surrounded by these opportunities, I have a chance to tell my own stories within these worlds.
The first step however, is to learn. To understand the production pipeline in China, FZD Films collaborated on over 10 domestic films during the past year. Working with my talented teams in both Singapore and Beijing, we helped define the visual styles of these movies.
One of these films, Sky Hunter, directed by Li Chen, releases today in China. I will share a follow up post soon showcasing some of the designs by our amazing team.
The audience in China is hungry for fresh content. If you are also interested in putting something on the table, please send me a message. I’d love to hear from you. We need film markers here.
FZD School of Design
Feng’s School is based in Singapore. It’s a top school for young people who want to get into computer design for games and movies. It’s also only one of 20-30 accredited schools in Singapore.
Feng just made another post, about his new movie studio!
Mid last year, actor Li Chen contacted me to see I was interested to be the visual effects producer for his next film, Sky Hunter. I met up with LC and his lovely fiancé, actress Fan Bingbing (who also stars in the movie), over a nice dinner in Beijing. LC’s kind and honest personality instantly struck me as someone I wanted to collaborate with. This was to be my first Chinese movie and LC’s first directing role!
Feng was a major part of the look of the Star Wars reboot, many popular video games and more, and now China will begin to overtake Hollywood in these areas IMO…. AND with an Asian sensibility that will appeal to that market. People are tired of Hollywood worldwide!
Also Feng is definitely a kind of higher dimensional person because as teens we would joke, and one of the jokes he made was about breathing in prana from the air! Not your average person
Dear readers, you may recall that I mentioned Masaki and his work a few times throughout my Webinars 4 and 5. Masaki builds popular orgone pyramids and does awesome numerology readings — I had one recently!
Meet Masaki Miyagawa, aka, Akaida, and his popular article on FT:
As the honorary Brazil ‘native,’ Masaki also helped me with my BRAZIL COLOR REVOLUTION mega-report: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions

AND KUDOS FOR BEST QUESTIONS & COMMENTS GO TO…
Since we had chat room and commenting open throughout the entire 4 hours of the webinar, Az and I have decided to select the best comments, worthy of our KUDOS! These are:
- Comment by Mark, who previously received KUDOS more than once for his great questions during THREE WEBINAR SERIES! MARK: I am now setting up a Trust in Switzerland… it is for projects beneficial to The PEOPLE of the planet… Lada IS included!
LADA: Thank you, Mark! Very much honored and appreciate it!
- On a lighter note, ‘a purely 3-D comment from Ann (UK) re. Lada’s haircut,’ which prompted a cute multi-dimensional joke! LADA: Thank you, Ann, we did need to lighten up the atmosphere!
Best question KUDOS, in Lada’s expert 😉 opinion, go to…
- From Natercia (Portugal): Question re. Oct 1, 2017 Catalonia’s Independence Referendum and the reason secession / unionist movements all over the world are on the rise. As I explained in the THREE WEBINAR SERIES, these are connected to the GREAT EARTH SHIFT and Period 8! ‘Lada, I am Portuguese, and here in the Iberian Peninsula we have “Catalunia” (Catalonia). Will Catalunia be independent? (I hope they will) and how it will affect all the Iberian Peninsula and also European Union?’
- From Polli (Hawaii, USA): Please Comment on HAARP and chemtrails, which are EVERYWHERE! I am saddened and depressed by the condition of the skies.
- From Torben (Denmark): Dear Lada, How can we, people with ordinary jobs, children, dog, etc., rise our consciousness? As part of this answer Lada demonstrates how her Personal Calibrations work during consultations: QC, CHI and Soul Dimension calibrated!
- From Az (NYC, USA): What is a Russian Dacha and why do Russians love them so much? Why prophetess Anastasia (The Ringing Cedars Books) foretold Russian Dachas saving the people from collapse
- From Eugene (Singapore): While China seems to be rising, do you see any disruptions to China’s economic growth and political system? Any impact on the world?
QUESTIONS I WISH I RECEIVED, BUT NEVER DID…
This part is something I hoped I wouldn’t have to include, because I did hope people would rise to the challenge (LOL) and ask me these.
I got these two comments:
And the moral of the story?
Let me tell you a well-known in both Odessa and NYC old Jewish joke:
Moshe is praying to god: ‘Dear god, I always followed your tenets, always lived a righteous life. I have been for a long time praying for you to help me win a lottery to improve my financial situation and as a reward for my good behavior. How come you never sent me a win, despite my repeated pleas?’
And god replies: ‘Moshe, try buying a lottery ticket…’
So, the moral of the story: CARPE DIEM, dear friends! Ask and you shall receive! To win you must play!
Both of you were at the LIVE Q&A. Should have asked your questions when you had THE perfect chance! Some of you, who have ordered my consultations, know that I am very generous with my time, and always give you extras. You also all know how much I enjoy answering your questions!
The two questions about Merkel and German elections, and about the flipside of Chinese Eurasia expansion are the kinds of questions I was hoping to receive, and I’d gladly go overtime to answer these! You’d all benefit greatly to know the multi-dimensional perspective and my predictions for both. Now… it may forever remain a mystery, unless you order a PRIVATE CONSULTATION (New consultation Tea & Q&A with Lada Ray is recommended for global and cosmic questions, as well as your own stories you want to share. I also have a lot more leeway to share with you during such private consultation things that I can’t discuss publicly).
Next time, just go for it! However, you should have done it when you had the chance — as there may be no next time in this specific format! It appears, this kind of webinar may end up remaining a one-of-a-kind, unique experiment (one day I’ll reveal, due to what extenuating factors).
Don’t miss it! Order this one-of-a-kind, unique webinar, as there may be no other chance!

Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus Army Exercise and China-Russia Naval Drills near Korea
Pre-planed Russia-Belarus joint Zapad 2017 War Games ran from September 14 to 20th, 2017. The official number of participating troops, according to Russian and Belorussian official sources, was less than 13 thousand.
There are several things you should know about the army drills usually referred to as ‘Zapad Exercise.’ Zapad drills started in the 1970s USSR. Since then they were conducted every 2-4 years, on average. Last one was in 2013. The largest Zapad Exercise took place in 1980s, when 100,000 Soviet troops took part in Zapad drills.
The Western officials, notably, German defense minister, NATO, as well as Swedish officials and presidents of Poland and the Baltic states, have been convulsing in hysterics since July 2017. According to German war minister, not 12.5 thousand, but 100,000 troops took place in the exercise. Moreover, according to accusations, Russians had a clandestine plan to sneak those extra troops into Belarus under the cover of the night and leave them there! Please explain to me how exactly do you ‘sneak in’ 100,000 troops plus hardware? Is it the same method used to ‘sneak in’ the invisible Russian troops into Donbass?
Furthermore, the devious Russian grand plan is apparently to use these secret troops to attack poor, defenseless Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia — and yeah, Sweden, too! Never mind all those NATO/US bases stationed there.
You probably won’t be surprised to find out that much of this ‘intel’ was supplied to NATO, Germany and others by… Poroshenko and Kiev junta. Just goes to show the level of professionalism and level of intelligence of the German defense ministry and NATO.
Of course, they want to believe this tale with all their might. Why? Because they are looking in the mirror, but are afraid to admit to themselves that it’s their own reflection they are looking at. It’s so much easier to blame everything on Russia. It’s what they’d do in a heartbeat ~ in other words, invade Russia ~ if only Russia didn’t have all those pesky nukes and other cutting-edge weapons they don’t know how to counter.
Don’t believe me; just take a quick look at history. In the past several hundred years Russia was repeatedly invaded by: Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, France, USA, Romania. In other words, the same countries that yell the loudest about ‘Russian threat,’ and the same countries that form NATO!
So, number one: Zapad 2017 was a pre-scheduled exercise, agreed upon 4 years ago, according to Russian sources.
To give you an idea of what’s behind the name, the word ‘zapad’ means in Russian ‘west.’ This is the type of exercise regularly conducted in the western regions of Russia, or USSR in previous days. There is also a similar exercise, also conducted regularly, which is called ‘Tsenter,’ meaning ‘center.’ Those drills take place in central Russia.
Incidentally, the word ‘Zapad’ is pronounced with accent on FIRST ‘a,’ not second, as I hear it pronounced by the Western MSM. Accent on second sounds just too funny, and has a completely different meaning.
Number two: NATO’s Anakonda 2016 exercise took place last year along the borders of Russia and Belarus and it was the largest NATO exercise since the Cold War. The stated purpose of Anakonda war games was to deflect ‘aggression’ by Russia. It was defensive in name only. NATO especially employed RUSSIAN-SPEAKING statists to practice on them various invasion, hostage-taking and interrogation techniques. Usually, war games are not supposed to state the nationality or exact identity of a supposed enemy. During Anakonda 2016 NATO, with avid insistence by Poland, broke this cardinal rule of international relations.
Therefore, even if Zapad 2017 was simply Russia’s and Belarus’s reaction to the outrageous and insulting muscle-flexing by NATO, they are perfectly within their right to do so! The only way to keep the NATO beast at bay is to constantly remind it that Russian invasion is way out of their league, no matter how much they dream of it. The result of each invasion against Russia always ends the same way. I almost dare them to try. The result will be very predictable.
All my readers, as well as all normal and reasonable Western countries’ residents, this one is for you!
Don’t you see what’s happening? NATO, US and Germany’s hysteria notwithstanding, don’t you notice that Poland and three tiny countries located in the Baltics (Lithuania, first and foremost, with its warmongering hitler-in-a-skirt Gribauskaite, also Latvia and Estonia), plus Ukraine’s junta, are trying to engineer a war between the West and Russia. By inventing the ‘Russian threat,’ continuously provoking Russia and escalating hysteria and fear-mongering, they are attempting to ensure that large Western countries, particularly US, France and Germany are tied into an obligation to defend them. They want insurance that if they provoke Russia into responding through their actions, US/Germany/NATO will treat them as victims, not as passive-aggressive provocateurs they are. This was the way WWI started: a manipulated provocation in a small country triggered the major countries’ clash in global war!
In fact, we have seen this so many times! For example, Poland was the earliest aggressor in WWII, who invaded Czechoslovakia together with Hitler, yet it insists it’s a poor victim of German and ‘Russian’ aggression. Saakashvili’s Georgia attacked S. Ossetia, yet it insisted that Russia attacked Georgia — and the likes of Merkel, BBC and CNN just ate it up. The same happened in 2014 with the Kiev junta – and this lie is still ongoing!
All the Dark State / Deep State forces notwithstanding, don’t you see that these secondary countries are trying to manipulate large countries, provoking a massive military confrontation? And the silly Western MSM and sheeple just keep parroting it.
There are other three factors that are important, but not primary. Still, I want to mention them.
- Pentagon and various weapons manufacturers, as well as similar war ministries and manufacturers in Europe want more money. To constantly receive that money they need to keep public in fear of an imaginary enemy. For them Russia always played the role of such convenient enemy. In fact, when Trump began talking about lessening USA’s contribution to NATO, EU countries decided to give US a bribe in the form of more weapons contracts and war games. The elements of this bribe are more US hardware in the EU and more US troops in Eastern Europe. This bribe has proven extremely useful in keeping the gluttonous US military-industrial complex happy, and therefore, in keeping USA fully invested in NATO.
- The bloated machine of NATO itself is having a hard time justifying its measly existence. Every time there is a talk of NATO outliving its usefulness, the sold-out Western MSM comes up with some sort of threat from Russia.
- By constantly maintaining the fear in their populace, US/EU/NATO countries can distract their populations from real problems, such as migrant crisis, terrorist attacks and the growing rape rate by migrants. The West is in the decline mode, albeit slowly. By maintaining this constant fear of an imaginary attack by Russia, they hope to consolidate their sheeple around powers that be, so the sheeple won’t begin rebelling and questioning the obvious.
And here is another great example of the West’s double standards:
Just check out this extensive Wikipedia article on Zapad 2017 exercise. And just check out the anti-Russian tone of this entry! To remind everyone, Wikipedia is supposed to be impartial and neutral.
Zapad 2017 (Russian: «Запад-2017», Belarusian: Захад-2017) is a joint strategic military exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and Belarus (the Union State) that formally began on 14 September 2017 and ended on 20 September 2017, in Belarus as well as in Russia‘s Kaliningrad Oblast and Russia′s other north-western areas. According to the information made public by the Defence Ministry of Belarus prior to the exercise, fewer than 13,000 personnel of the Union State are to take part in the military maneuvers, a number that does not trigger mandatory formal notification and invitation of observers under the OSCE‘s Vienna Document. Western analysts, however, believed in July 2017 that the total number of Russian troops, security personnel and civilian officials to be involved in the broader war-games will range from 60,000 to 100,000, which would make them Russia’s largest since the Cold War. Since 2016, concerns have been voiced in a number of NATO countries over Russia’s suspected ulterior motives and objectives in connection with the exercise.
And now I challenge you to find a similar Wikipedia article on Anakonda 2016, that will honestly say that there were ulterior motives in that NATO exercise, and that Russia raised concerns over the fact that Russian-speaking people were used in it as hostage props for training purposes!
I was actually curious to see how the tone of such article would be different from the Zapad 2017 entry. I typed in Google: ‘Anakonda 2016 wikipedia,’ and this is the page I got! There is only an entry in German, written in a very different tone. It appears that the relevant entry in English was blocked!
Video: Putin attends Zapad 2017 drills
More Zapad 2017 videos
Incidentally, per international rules and unlike US/EU/NATO in Anakonda 2016, Russia/Belarus used FICTIONAL countries in their war games. Another thing worth noting: Zapad 2017, unlike Anakonda 2016, was conducted deep into Belarus territory and far from its western border. In other words, as usual it is clear who is the aggressor, and who only seeks to defend.
At almost the same time as Zapad 2017, joint Russia-China naval drills were conducted near the Korean Peninsula. This is clearly a reaction to Donald Trump’s threat to destroy N. Korea. Just to save his neck and to be on the good side of the Dark State and the establishment, Trump is ready to plunge the world into a nuclear war.
Although not happy with N. Korea’s behavior, clearly, Russia and China won’t let US strike against it. The only way US can be warned not to intervene militarily is to demonstrate Russia and China’s joint resolve and military capability.
Video: Russia-China Naval drills near Korean shores
As I predicted — and sadly, my predictions materialized all too well and all too quickly, Trump has fully succumbed to pressure and behaves like a normal warmongering US president. In fact, he is on his way to surpass Obama, that typical war-mongering Nobel Peace Prize laureate. As I said a few months ago: forget Trump, don’t hope he’ll do anything good that is worth mentioning, and write him off as just another failure.
Video: Trump: ‘we’ll have no choice but to destroy N. Korea.’
Have you voted for this person? Did you have stars in your eyes hoping for change? So, what do you think now? Perhaps, shoulda listened to my predictions?

How fitting that the same ‘Ugly American’ traits were on full display in Trump’s speech, along with the belief/threat that spending more money on military is a substitute for diplomacy. How eerily prescient that the authors in 1958 negatively contrasted American “refusal to integrate” (today called American Exceptionalism) to the “polished abilities of Eastern Bloc (primarily Soviet) diplomacy”.
When Trump hurriedly gathered vassals for the impromptu UN summit, whose goal was to twist everyone’s arm so they would sign a declaration of the UN reform without looking, Putin chose to attend Zapad 2017 joint Russia-Belarus army drills. Incidentally, almost at the same time, there was also joint Russia-China military exercise. Coincidence? Perhaps not..
The Western hysteria surrounding the inflated number of troops at Zapad 2017 exercise and the supposed imminent attack by Russia against the EU vassals is another story, so silly and disgusting that I don’t even feel like bringing it up. I might still talk about Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus joint exercise and what it really means, in a separate piece.
This one right now is about Trump’s ‘UN reform.’ Trump needs a win, any perceived win — desperately. He needs to show that he is a ‘real American president’ and the big boss. The wins have been elusive, to say the least. No wins to declare in Syria, or Iraq, or Iran, or against tiny N. Korea. Reforming the UN could be such a win — NOT.
I would be the first to say that UN desperately needs a reform (and I wrote about it in 2014-15). I know Russia and China think so, too. But it simply won’t happen the way Trump proposes it. The reform is coming, or the UN will have to be disbanded, but certainly not on Trump’s timetable.
I can tell you right away that neither Russia, nor China, will agree to what Trump is proposing — a deal he is trying to strike behind closed doors and without consulting anyone else. Of course, US will use that as a pretext to blame Russia and China for being ‘uncooperative.’ But in this hybrid 4D war we are so far beyond that.
We see Donald’s custom-made straitjacket in full splendor and fully at work, as predicted. Trump’s usual brash and uncooperative style of conducting business, now exponentially multiplied by the fact that he completely succumbed to the Dark (Deep) State’s demands in order to survive his term without impeachment, is a very volatile and dangerous mix indeed!
US, the empire in full collapse mode, is becoming more and more unruly, and therefore, dangerous to all.
As I predicted in WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?, Trump gladly and expeditiously is making deals with those who wanted him gone, in the process betraying all he seemingly stood for and all those who voted for him, believing he would ‘drain the swamp.’ Instead, he became an integral part of said swamp.

EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY BIG Q&A!
(8 more questions answered: this Q&A is 1 hr 16 min total)
1. Multiple people asked this question: How to cope with mass migration in Periods 8 and 9 and what to expect for the West in that regard?
Emil says this: ‘My country is being flooded by low IQ, low calibration people from the third world. In the current 3D economic system, low IQ does not go along well with economic productivity and “democracy”, Islam does not go well along with western civilization, and people who detest your way of life do not go well in your country. On the other hand humanity is one. Lada, please explain and give your prediction on this topic.’
2. Question from 1EarthUnited Maddie:
Lada, I listened carefully several times to your informative Webinars: ESW2 Inverted Collapse and ESW3 The Future of Money. Many of my questions were thoroughly answered, thank you! One more question. As you know, I want to relocate overseas, but so far I see other countries I’m considering seem to be weaker than the US. Will there be more turmoil outside of the US before the COLLAPSE. If so, where and what is the timeframe?
3. I was born in Brazil and live in the USA, so I would like to know how Brazil will be doing during the earth shift. Thanks and I regard your work very highly.
4. Apparently cycles can be broken. What can be done to break the cycle of warfare, have more peace and start to nurture our planet?
5. I wonder if you have any advice for balancing out our yin/yang and increasing consciousness towards 5D.
6. Lada, can you talk more about the role of the Vatican in all of this. As it seems the Jesuits are behind all of these wars to this day. I have read that they were behind Lenin, Stalin and Hitler. They were pitting one side against the other with their intrigues. It would be good to know where Russia stands on this Vatican agenda?
7. What is going on in AntArctica and when will the general population finally be aware of it?
8. Will there be an event that will reveal some great truth, and if so, what is the timeline?

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.
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:
- New Poll: 72% of USA allies consider it the biggest global threat
- Russia-US 4D Wars: Putin expels 755 US Diplomats; New Sanctions and Nord Stream 2 War
- Great Balancer Theory in Action! Iraq Requests Russia’s Military/Political Presence to Rebalance Region and World
- As predicted! 1 step forward 2 steps back: US sharpens rhetoric against Russia after G20
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.
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!
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
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.
THANK YOU, DEAR READERS, FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Russian volunteers, with the help of local police, stopped illegal truck carrying 1300 dogs and cats transported in horrific conditions, stuffed 5-10 to a tiny cage, many wounded, bleeding and dying from heat, thirst and hunger. These poor animals were to be killed and eaten at the Yulin dog meat festival. The Russian volunteers had to sneak the saved animals in secret into shelters and animal sanctuaries. These organizations must keep their addresses secret due to attacks by the dog and cat meat traders — a horrific custom still existing in the rural areas of China.
I want to stress that it was an international effort; the Chinese volunteers and Chinese animal shelters were involved.
The good news, many innocent animals have been saved.
