NEW ASK LADA, with Lada Ray PREDICTIONS!
This a follow up to:
- The schism begins! Orthodox Church of Florence, Italy, in protest leaves Constantinople Patriarchy and joins Russian Orthodox Church Abroad
- Lada’s Commentary! Russian Patriarch Kirill Speaks: Constantinople Patriarch Religious Schism Result of ‘Global Demand to Destroy Russian Church’
LADA RAY PREDICTIONS:
The weakening of the Russian Church is the US plan in order to hurt Russia as the biggest and main Pravoslavny (Orthodox) state. Russian Church is one of the foundations of the contemporary Russian state, it’s the glue that helps holding the Great Balancer together. Destroy the Church – you’ll weaken Russia.
Will they succeed? Temporarily yes, as confusion and in-fighting intensifies within the global Orthodoxy, and as many independent regional churches are forced to choose sides. There is much grief and tribulations expecting the people of Ukraine, as well, since the corruption reached astronomical proportions and the people allowed the ukro-nazi junta to take over.
The so-called ‘managed chaos’ is the US plan for the entire world. Not just for Ukraine or the Russian Church. It is the same exact plan for the US European ‘allies,’ and for China, and for Asia, and for Latin America. Everyone and everything, from the US perspective are pawns in the big game.
Don’t forget, the US is feeling the heat, its power is slipping away all around the globe and as I was predicting before, they’d do anything and everything to preserve this ill-gotten power!
By instituting a wholesale chaos around the world, whether it’s global trade wars, sanctions or religious wars, the US hopes to again improve their status and prevent the collapse! Long-term they’ll certainly fail.
In the end, I see the Constantinople patriarchy hurting most as a result of its betrayal of he Russian Church and the centuries-old canonical principles. As a result, it may be stripped of its privileges or even disappear. It certainly will lose much of its reputation. It appears however, that Bartholomew, blinded by ego, jealousy and hate, is ready for the global religious war in order to become a schismatic ‘Orthodox pope,’ and to earn his cash. Per recently voiced accusations, he received $25 million from the US. It’s also unclear what role is played by Turkey in this whole scenario.
But whatever happens, Russian Church must go through a cleansing and re-evaluating of priorities process, in order to determine who they can or cannot trust.
NOTE! We all individually, and every single country, will have to go through the same process as part of the EARTH SHIFT!
In the end, I predict that RUSSIA THE GREAT BALANCER WILL COME OUT A WINNER!

Extremely RUDE AMERICAN ‘journalist’ keeps interrupting Putin, not letting him say a word + MY INSIDE RUSSIAN INTEL! #Helsinki2018
Fresh Russian intel!
By inside accounts of top Russian journalists present, during joint Trump-Putin press conference, American journalists were very pushy, dismissive and aggressive. For example, they would refuse to give up microphone after their question, and would keep asking more questions for 5 minutes at a time, at the expense of Russian journalists present.
NOTICE THE CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE!
ALL American journalists’ questions WERE ABOUT THE PAST, mainly centering around the 2016 ‘Russian meddling.’
ALL Russian Journalists’ questions WERE ABOUT THE FUTURE AND THE IMPROVEMENT OF RUSSIA-US RELATIONS.
See Putin-Trump press conference and more in #Helsinki2018 here:
- Now the Ball’s in Your Court: HOPE FOR THE BEGINNING OF RUSSIA-US NORMALIZATION (Best Video Collection) #PutinTrumpSummit
As I was saying in response to a McCain-Hillary troll (yes, not kidding): sad day for America, sad day. See the whole exchange HERE.
Putin gave an interview to an American journalist on the sidelines of the summit, and the same story, which happened during Putin’s interview to an Austrian journalist before Putin’s meeting with Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz, has repeated. In Austrian interview, the Austrian journo made a world record by interrupting Putin 13 times, one up from American Megyn Kelly. Putin was forced to calm down the Austrian by asking him nicely and politely in GERMAN to be patient and to listen. Much like one would try to calm down a silly, moody 2 year-old, who doesn’t get reason or manners. I think a normal 2-year-old would get it much better than these ‘journalists,’ who think they’ll earn a badge of honor at home by being exceptionally rude to Russian president.
Putin’s Helsinki interview with the rude and aggressive American ‘journalist’ from Fox. A 3min snippet. Trump calls CNN ‘fake news’ – rightly. We should start calling Fox ‘the rude and aggressive fake news.’ What’s the dif?
I haven’t seen, but I can only imagine how different and respectful was a Russian journalist’s interview with Trump.
This one from Fox (no idea what his name is – don’t care) is doing the same, but with even more anger and aggression, forcing Putin to tell him he is disrespectful – actually, this is the first time I’ve seen Putin say this. I’m sure this Fox talking head was trying to make Putin angry and lash out at him, so he would have something sensationalist to write. Putin’s patience is absolutely angelic when dealing with global idiots and freaks such as this one. To which American replied incredulously, ‘Disrespectful?! Who, me??’ I don’t think he ever looked up in the dictionary the meaning of the word.
Anyway, I simply admire Putin’s angelic and out-of-this-world presence of mind and patience with these malicious 2-year-olds from hell, who somehow were given a disproportionate amount of power in our world.
As Russian FM Sergey Lavrov once said to the rude and screaming American journos, during a presser with Kerry: ‘Where did they teach you manners?” The US journos looked very confused: I don’t think they ever knew there was such a thing as ‘manners.’
You must know, my dear American, Western and global readers that in Russia the rudeness and unprofessionalism of American and European journalists, as well as politicians, is a subject of endless jokes and mockery. So is the faux Western democracy, and lack of any sense of reason.
I guess my patience is also angelic, although not as angelic as Putin’s. So, here’s my nice and kindly advice, because I care about peace and mutual understanding in the world:
Would you like to change this perception? Start by boycotting your MSM, exposing them and telling them what you think about their attitudes. And start by voting out of office the idiots in power in the West (and I mean practically everywhere, except maybe a couple of countries, which we previously discussed).
The point Putin managed to get across in the interview — through all of Fox freak’s yelling over him — is this:
THE AMERICANS ARE HOLDING RUSSIA-US RELATIONS & ALL INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS HOSTAGE TO THEIR POLITICAL INFIGHTING!
Excellent point from Putin!
But those who follow me, know there is MUCH MORE! The process of extreme division and animosity within the US is due to THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT and to Russia the Great Balancer rebalancing the world, along with China and some other forces. This is what makes them so extremely angry, and this is why they fight between themselves and accuse Russia of all mortal sins. The right thing to do would be to look in the mirror and see that they are doing it to themselves, but they aren’t evolved enough for that.
Incidentally, it would be very useful to show how many times in the past and how (unfortunately) successfully US interfered into the affairs of Russia, and continues attempting to do so.
I could recall the elephant in the room: HOW US PULLED THE STUNT OF THE CENTURY AND SUCCEEDED IN BREAKING UP THE USSR, CAUSING THE ’90S DISASTER AND SUCKING MUCH OF THE WEALTH OUT OF RUSSIA AND UKRAINE.
All about that in two of my bestselling webinars:
I could recall how Yeltsin 1996 re-election was falsified by Americans – an absolutely blatant interference in Russia’s internal affairs, very well remembered by Russians. I did a post on that on Patreon and I might do another dedicated post.
There were and are many other cases, among them, of course, many color revolutions and especially the subversion of Ukraine / Kiev maidan 2014.
Current hot case: that of Hermitage Capital and Bill Browder, whom Putin mentioned in the joint Putin-Trump press conference. Incidentally, the Hermitage Capital case is ongoing and Browder is wanted in Russia on some very serious charges of money laundering and tax evasion on the amount of $1.5 bln. Putin threw that point at Trump on purpose – a brilliant move by the global chess master! I will discuss what this move means, along with a number of other brilliant moves by Putin at the Helsinki summit — REPORT COMING TO PATREON IN A FEW DAYS!
Putin, by throwing some very interesting and beneficial to Trump hints, is very exquisitely and very masterfully giving a hand to Trump and republicans, helping them win midterm elections 2018. Of course, republicans are too dumb to get it, but Trump got it — and he played along!

First ever East Russia International Economic Forum (Vostochny Economichesky Forum), aka, Eastern Economic Forum, is taking place in Vladivostok, Russia. Vladivostok is Russia’s port and international hub in the Far East, located very close to Japan.
During Soviet days Vladivostok was a closed city, where foreigners were not allowed. After the breakup of the USSR it became a hub for trade with Japan, sometimes illegal.
However, as Russia continues its historic pivot to the East (as I predicted since the beginning of 2014) more and more interest in free and legal country-to-country trade is developing. What a turn around from the Soviet days!
During the East Russia Economic Forum Putin announced that Vladivostok would become first Free Trade Port in the Far East, a development eagerly awaited by Japanese, Korean and Chinese business and investors. Putin also announced that following Vladivostok, other Russian Far Eastern ports will become Free Trade zones. He didn’t specify which ones, but I believe we are talking primarily Khabarovsk and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, but also probably Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Komsomolsk-na-Amure and a few others.
Why is this announcement being made now:
This proposal had been on the table for the Japanese investors for some years. Russians promoted it as a way to make peace with old Japanese claims for Kuril Islands and Sakhalin (the latter has been withdrawn, as far as I know). However, Japanese, due to the internal politics and American pressure were unwilling to move the issue along. The elegant solution of the free trade zones, while Russia keeps the political, administrative and military control over its strategically important islands is a very wise solution of the old dispute.
The free trade ports issue stalled until China and Russia were literally pushed towards a very close alliance after the blatant intervention of the US and West in Ukraine and after the anti-Russian sanctions. The multi-faceted Russia-China alliance is making new leaps forward, the latest being Putin’s trip to Beijing for the Chinese parade (I’ll have a separate post about that).
As the trade between Russia and China is making these giant leaps, Korean and Japanese investors have to scramble to catch on while they can. The alternative is losing the lucrative Russian market, which is now opening up. But this rare opportunity will only last until the market is taken.
Japanese interest in the East Russia Forum is overwhelming, same as Chinese, S. Korean, Singaporean, etc. The organizers said that they planned for 1000 participants, while they got over 5000 participation requests. The interest from Europeans is just as huge.
The systematic Russian pivot to the East is continuing. It is helped by the short-sighted and silly policies of the West (recall my many predictions!).
Japan, usually identified as part of the West, is seeing the writing on the wall and is trying to shift towards the East as well. Japanese businessmen declared during the forum their desire to keep politics and business separate.

Synchronicity in action:
As I was getting ready to publish this post, I received three tweets from my Japanese friend Akaida. Here they are:
@LadaTweets Even Japan going #BRICS? Sanctions could lead to Russia-Japan currency swaps https://www.rt.com/business/314193-japan-russia-swap-sanctions … hmm! 🙂
These are all positive signs, at least on the economic front. I spoke in my article Pro-US and Anti-Russian Japan: Eyewitness Overview and Predictions about Japanese business interests diverging from Japanese politics. Dependence on the US and habitual political confrontationism with the neighbors will continue putting the brake on Japan’s integration into the new model of development. I think US will keep its influence over Japan for another 5 or more years.
But cracks are showing, and they are showing on the business side. Japan, still being 2nd largest Asian economy and 3rd-4th largest global economy, plus possessing advanced technologies, is a very valuable business partner. Meanwhile, the ongoing weakening and collapse of the West is causing Japan to reconsider its tight economic alliance with the West. Japanese business has no choice but diversify in order to survive.
Japanese business is eager to set politics aside and set up alliances with the growing world and Asian powers, where the future development is, but old Japanese political allegiances are holding this process back.
This is my summary analysis of the most important features of the slow, ongoing shift of Japan’s position on global arena.
- It has to be remembered that while Japan has no global political power, serving basically the US Trojan Horse in the region, it is an economic powerhouse, which at one point was the engine of the global economy. Also, Japan’s regional political and military ambitions are on the rise. All this together means that when Japan switches allegiances, it will be a huge blow to the US empire.
- We should expect Japanese switch in conjunction with the EU switch, of which I briefly wrote in the above-linked article. This will be a slow and tedious process, to be sure.
- Because Japan has built walls of confrontation and animosity against so many countries in Asia, it is difficult for them to reintegrate. Many in Asia distrust Japan utterly, based on history and present policies.
- My prediction is that Japan will be able to re-integrate into Asia economically through the unifying factor of Russia. Generally, Russia will serve as the bridge and peacemaker for re-creating understanding and cooperation not only in Asia, but also in all of Eurasia, including Europe. The Middle East will take longer, but that will also happen eventually (not for a while, the wounds are too deep). Eventually, Russia’s role will be to re-establish the principles of cooperation and friendship on our entire planet.
- Fro the time being, we should have no illusions about Japan politically and militarily. The confrontational approach will persist for as long as Japan’s best buddy is USA. The new Japanese military doctrine for the first time since WWII allows Japanese troops to be deployed oversees. This, understandably, makes everyone in Asia jittery, as people still remember the destructiveness of the Japanese militarism in the past.
- There is a clear bifurcation (and rift?) forming between Japanese economic interests and its political direction. This will have to be resolved eventually. I give it 5-7 years. As USA empire weakens, Japan will gradually shift away from the West and closer to the East and Russia. Eventually, economic interests will prevail over politics. Japanese business must now scramble to catch up to China. Incidentally this applies to S. Korea and Singapore as well. If they don’t, in the shifting global economic landscape Japanese companies will start losing out to competitors, weakening the country’s economy.
- On some level, Japanese government understands this gloomy scenario. This is why they quietly allow their business to disregard politics. Make no mistake, there is clearly a secret understanding between Japanese big business and the ruling elites (some might say they are one and the same). This is why publicly there is support of the US-Japan alliance, and behind the scenes, economic integration with Russia and the BRICS.
- Incidentally, the same is happening with S. Korea, Singapore and other countries. In the next post I will have a telling story about the pressure applied by the US on S. Korea to prevent it escaping US clutches. Same kind of situation is applicable to Europe as well. Everyone sees the writing on the wall. But for the time being, US is still strong enough keep its ‘allies’ in its clutches.
Quantum Calibrations — Earth & Personal Shift — Earth Shift Predictions — Feng Shui
Breaking news: US president Obama announced that he was lifting some of the 50-year-old sanctions against Cuba, using his executive powers – only Congress can lift embargo completely. An exchange of prisoners has taken place, certain business and travel restrictions to Cuba are expected to be lifted. Obama announced that it’s time to normalize relations between the two countries. The Miami anti-Cuban lobby is up in arms.
Various analysts have been speculating why this is happening now. Some think it’s a sign of the USA’s weakness, others believe it is to tear Cuba away from Venezuela’s influence, and to impede Cuba’s relationship development with Russia and China.
As you know, I have been to Cuba years ago, when embargo was in full swing. You can find 2 interviews on the INTERVIEWS page, where I talk about some of my Cuban experiences. I also wrote about Cuba in: New Predictions! Putin Goes to Latin America: US Creates Wars – Russia Extends a Hand of Cooperation.
The US government must have read this last article of mine and felt ashamed of its behavior. No, not really…
But in all seriousness, here is why a sudden warming towards Cuba. In my view, it’s both weakness and cunning at the same time.
Why it is weakness: US is conducting an unprecedented and unheard off previously in scale attack on Russia (economic, monetary, political and proxy-military via third parties). More on that in Paul Craig Roberts interview.
Meanwhile, US also has to juggle other countries such as China, Turkey and India, which are slowly distancing themselves from the US. Venezuela is next on the list of US sanctions. Latin America is very anti-American and leaning more and more left, including even Mexico, the long-term US vassal. Russia recently had a very productive set of agreements signed with Turkey (Russian gas, building new pipeline, building a number of nuclear power stations). Putin just returned from India, also with nearly $100bln worth of trade agreements. I wrote many times this past year about massive agreements with China. More and more large economies are transitioning to bilateral trade outside of the dollar.
Power is slipping away from the US.
In this situation, Cuba is one front too many on which to fight. If US makes up with Cuba, they are hoping they can pull Cuba into their sphere of influence, or at least neutralize Cuba by seducing those poor people with flashy nothings. This is where the cunning part comes in.
Why it’s cunning: Russia, which is being surrounded by NATO/US military bases that are encroaching on Russia’s borders, is considering establishing a navy base in Cuba. China also signed a number of trade and economic agreements with this ‘imprisoned island’ as Kennedy would say (my only question is: imprisoned by whom?). Anti-US Venezuela presently is the biggest supporter and donor of the Cuban economy. The situation is dicey for the US. Cuba is located too close to US shores for comfort.
Russia and Turkey have agreed on a large number of economic and political agreements, which are bound to get them closer to each other (in perspective, SCO membership for Turkey, which also gets them closer to China). Turkey, having been slighted by the EU’s long-term refusal to admit it into the union, has been looking more and more East. Turkey has also been a reluctant participant in NATO. US has been putting enormous pressure on Turkey and president Erdogan to act in the interests of the US and NATO in the region.
For example, I have no doubt that recent color revolution attempt in Turkey (timed right before 2014 presidential elections) was US organized in order to attempt unseating, or at least to scare Erdogan. The result was the opposite – the moment Erdogan was re-elected, he started the process of getting closer to Russia. Looks like Erdogan also had no doubt who was behind the almost color revolution. It appears Turkey is looking for ways to weaken its dependence, and eventually to leave NATO. As I said on different occasions in similar situations – such exodus will only be possible when US weakens sufficiently.
The reason I talk about Turkey when I should be talking about Cuba is geopolitics, plain and simple. Look at the map. In terms of geopolitical position and value, Turkey is to Russia what Cuba is to the US.
Many of my readers know that I grew up in Odessa, USSR. Odessa is located right across from Turkey, on the Black Sea coast. Since I was a child I heard about captured NATO spies attempting to cross into Russia underwater from the Turkish side. The beautiful beaches in Odessa were dotted with border patrol watch towers. It was always expected that some kind of US/NATO threat would come from the other side of the Black Sea, which was full of NATO bases.
As some readers may remember (this was a little before my time, but I heard enough stories), in 1962 the US/NATO placed nuclear missiles in Turkey, targeting USSR, and specifically the city I was to grow up in – Odessa. Khrushchev and USSR responded by saying they were placing missiles in Cuba, which is known as the Cuban Missile Crisis. Of course, the US history books and MSM lie by twisting the events in such a way as to make it seem it was Khrushchev who initiated the missile crisis. However, every serious historian, in the US as well, will know it was the other way around.
Of course, the Cuban Missile Crisis was extinguished as soon as US removed its nuclear missiles from Turkey. Consequently, USSR cancelled the quid pro quo deployment of its missiles to Cuba. American MSM and history books will make you believe it was a great victory of the US government and an achievement due to Kennedy’s/USA’s tough stance on Russia. From that twisted propaganda point of view, the contemporary US politicians make an equally twisted conclusion that US must continue being tough on Russia. As an example, see the new anti-Russian US Congress resolution allowing Obama to tighten sanctions against Russia.
Just look at this brilliant logic! While Obama admits that sanctions didn’t work on Cuba, doing more harm than good – at the same time, miraculously, these same sanctions will somehow work on Russia!
I have a better solution for the US: 1. stop bullying the entire world; 2. lose your superiority complex, which in fact is severe inferiority complex – and conflicts you create globally will start dissipating all by themselves.
Now you know why I was talking about Turkey. Cuba and Turkey are interconnected geopolitically. In 2014, as US/NATO/EU were concentrating on the destruction of Ukraine, Putin/Russia were shoring up allies in Latin America, China, Central Asia and Turkey. Another hidden victory of Putin is Azerbaijan. Putin brokered a new truce between Armenia and Azerbaijan, averting bloodshed in the disputed Nagorny Karabakh and potential color revolution in Armenia. Azerbaijan is a big factor for Turkey’s swing towards Russia. Basically, very quietly, US just lost influence over Azerbaijani oil and gas, and at least began losing Turkey.
Now that Turkey is leaning towards Russia and China, US is attempting to rebalance the situation by tempting Cuba to join the US sphere of influence. Wouldn’t that be ironic? I personally don’t think it will go anywhere. I know Cubans; I also know Russians, Venezuelans and Chinese. I know Americans too – perhaps even better.
That said, we are entering an era of very complex, multi-move geopolitical chess matches. The small, poor and in-between countries, the ‘swing vote’ so to speak, is where a lot of geopolitical games will be concentrating. Every player will try to get them on their side. Such countries can benefit tremendously in the global repositioning of power – if they are smart.
This kind of global geopolitical situation is a sure sign of the collapse of the old US-dominated uni-polar world. US empire is weakening, albeit slowly.
My assessment: I think US started using smarter advisors compared to those they used for the Kiev coup and Ukraine. But not smart enough.
It will be great if embargo is lifted and Cuba can start breathing easier! That said, Cubans, I hope you don’t forget who you are and I hope you remember you aren’t for sale!
On multiple prior occasions I have predicted that any sanctions against Russia by the West will only backfire, expediting Russia’s re-orientation to the East and the unavoidable re-molding of the Western financial/economic model.
Russia’s re-orientation and subsequent creation of the independent financial system is what the banksters of Wall Street and London City fear most. This will eventually result in a catastrophe for the US/UK and EU, except for those European countries that succeed in re-orienting their economies to the East. Meanwhile, Russia, China and other countries in the Eurasian space, will benefit tremendously. Read: Ukraine Part 7: Russia’s Geopolitics, USA’s Bluff and EU’s Big Mistake.
The US and EU can be proud: as a result of their aggressively provocative behavior and the double standards galore, they managed to expedite the process by at least ten years. Read the rest of this entry
