Trump’s Man in Moscow: Trump sends a message to Russia via his ex-adviser Page

Trump sends a message via his ex-advisor Page that he intends to mend relations with Russia. Page also talks about the ‘swamp’ in the US Trump intends to clean up.

Carter Page, former foreign policy adviser to US President-elect Donald Trump during his campaign, is holding a presentation in Moscow titled ‘Departing from hypocrisy: potential strategies in the era of global economic stagnation, security threats and fake news’.

This is a noteworthy talk. Carter Page starts at 1:20 (Eng): LINK

 

Meanwhile, this is what’s floating around in the US media about Trump, Carter Page and his supposed ‘deep connection to the Kremlin’ :

The Mystery of Trump’s Man in Moscow  (Reports of deep Russian ties swirl around Trump advisor Carter Page. Oddly, nobody in Russia seems to have heard of him. By JULIA IOFFE September 23, 2016)

 

Because, you know, anyone who sincerely wants to work with, not against Russia, is obviously a KGB agent, traitor to the NWO cause and enemy of the US.

In the above propaganda ‘article’ – if such drivel can be called an article – let me point out two obvious things, which will immediately give you an idea who ORDERED it and for what purpose.

  1. It refers to ‘no one knowing of Page in Moscow.’ Then further down, shyly, the ‘author’ admits that she is only talking about the ‘US expat community.’ In other words, look at this out-of-this-world arrogance! To her, Moscow apparently is exclusively populated with ‘US expats.’ The rest of the 12 million people, Russians and others who always lived there, don’t matter.
  2. But it gets worse. As the ultimate expert on all things Russian she parades Bill Browder.  ‘“Strangely, I’ve never heard of Carter Page until this Trump connection,” Bill Browder responded to me in an email. He was one of the biggest Western players in the Russian market until President Vladimir Putin turned on him and Browder became his fierce critic. “It’s odd, because I’ve heard of every other financier who was a player on Moscow at the time.”’   Who’s Bill Browder? You may recall I mentioned him once: he was the man who in mid-2000s managed the now defunct Hermitage Capital. This supposedly ‘Russia investment fund’ served as a front for CIA ops in Moscow and Russia. Browder was involved in recruiting agents and subverting Russian business leaders and oligarchs by finding compromising materials to blackmail them. The pinnacle of Browder’s achievement was to recruit and finance a well-known anti-Putin activist Alexei Navalny, who bought minority stakes in Gazprom and other key Russian companies and later mired said companies in lawsuits, thus tying up capital and attemtping to manipulate the companies’ allegiances. The stakes were purchased using Browder’s Hermitage funds, but the op was styled as a fight for ‘democracy and equal rights of minority shareholders’ – Navalny’s specialty. The idea was to shake-up Russia and undermine stability in the country so a color revolution could be executed. Browder was booted out of Russia and his fund was closed down. He now resides in NYC and when asked, he says ‘he doesn’t recall what he did in Moscow.’ I may be able to speak more about the ‘Operation QUAKE’ in future writings.

 

Although the US election is seemingly over and Hillary initially recognized her defeat, for the first time in modern history, the fight between two candidates (and forces who stand behind them) doesn’t show signs of abating. Clinton advocates still are hoping to find ‘legal means’ of overturning election results. One of the means they feel they can succeed with is swaying the US Electoral College delegates to vote against Trump.

Announcement!

I’m preparing a new video/audio update on Trump Election. Many are predicting that ‘something crazy may happen’ and that ‘delegates will vote against Trump.’ In the new FREE video update to ESR16 I’ll give you my final prediction on how Electors will vote on December 19, 2016. That date will seal the results of the US Presidential Election… or it will create a renewed turmoil and revolution in the US. We will discuss all this in this new update. The video will be up on Lada Ray YT channel in a day or two!

Further in 2017, I am planning Live Lada Ray Webinars. The webinars will address the next 3-5 years in the US and West, the financial situation, the future of the dollar, my practical advice on money, relocation and preparation. The timeline for various events and Earth Shifting changes, plus quantum calibrations, will be included. Stay tuned for upcoming official announcements!

NEW EARTH SHIFT REPORT 13: ERDOGAN’S WAR (Consequences of Erdogan-Putin Meeting 8/9/16)

New Earth Shift Report 13 is here!

Read ESR 13

ERDOGAN’S WAR!

(Consequences of Erdogan-Putin Meeting 8/9/16)

ESR13 Erdogan's War

.

ESR13 summary and description

On August 9, 2016 Turkish President Erdogan arrives to St. Petersburg, Russia, to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time since Turkish Airforce shot down Russian Su24 jet in late fall 2015. Russia retaliated with massive economic sanctions and across the board Turkish bans. But recently, Erdogan sent a surprise letter of apology to Putin. Following that, Russia warned Erdogan of the planned Turkish military coup, thus saving his presidency and his life.

Amid continuing war in Syria spearheaded by Russian Airforce, Turkey had served as safe haven and training grounds for ISIS terrorists. Turkey has benefited greatly from the black market ISIS oil sales, drug, human and artifact trafficking through its territory. At the same time, Turkish NATO bases had for decades been one of the strongest concentrations of US military power stationed abroad, and directed primarily against Russia, as well as helping to control the Middle East.

The EU refugee crisis, orchestated by the US and Turkey weakened the EU and made the population and politicians alike question the validity of open borders and neoliberal policies. Angela Merkel lost much of her former clout by welcoming a million plus refugees without any necessary checks of their legitimacy and association with ISIS. After it became clear that neither Germany nor EU were prepared to cope with such influx, she offered Turkey a 6 bln euro bribe to keep refugees away from EU shores. To bribe Erdogan, Merkel also allowed the prosecution of a comedian who wrote a mocking poem about Turkish leader, thus going against the core European principle of freedom of speech. Merkel’s actions turned into a complete fiasco. In protest, German Bundestag finally decided to recognize Turkish slaughter of millions of Armenians in early 20th century as genocide (something many other countries, including Russia, have done years ago).

In response, Erdogan banned German MPs from visiting German troops at a Turkish NATO base, therefore creating a rift within NATO. Simultaneously, Erdogan threatened to expel US troops from its bases, while allowing Russians to use them. A serious conflict began between Turkey and US. No matter how much US tries to downplay it, Turkey’s growing rift with US and NATO is apparent.

What do all these perplexing and contradictory events mean for the very survival of NATO?
What does all this mean for Turkey and the Middle East?
Are US and NATO about to lose Turkey as their key ally?
Why did Putin warn Erdogan of the upcoming coup and how did Russians know about it?
Why did Turkish military coup fail?
Was it a false flag or a real coup gone wrong and who is truly behind it?
Erdogan’s purges: what’s really going on?
Will USA extradite Fethullah Gülen to keep its bases in Turkey?
Will Turkey welcome Russian jets on NATO bases?
What is behind Erdogan’s stunning turnaround and letter of apology to Russia, and what is the future of Russia-Turkey relations?
Should Erdogan’s apology and visit be considered Russia’s major win?
Is Turkish Stream back on the agenda?
Does this turnaround signal a shift in the balance of power in the Black Sea region and the Middle East?
What does it mean for the future of the US Empire?

EARTH SHIFT AT WORK:
End of NATO & shakeup of entire Western system?
Does Erdogan’s turnaround signal the strengthening of Russia and Earth Shift?

Keiser Report: Siberian Camembert (ft. Ben Aris)

Max, Stacey and guest Ben Aris stationed in Moscow, discuss the following: How China surpassed US as world’s largest economy; debt ridden US and UK economies and their comparison to Germany and China, as well the lies of the UK government. And last but not least: the despair index shows that despite the ruble crisis, Russians feel more optimistic and satisfied than Europeans, and until recently, more so than Americans. About 75% of Russians, including the poorest 1/2 of the country, feel satisfied with their lives, with very low unemployment, access to money for entertainment/cars/home improvement, lower povery levels than EU and US, and overall decent living standards. Less travel than before and higher inflation are direct results of Western sanctions and deliberate attack on the ruble, which upped the index value somewhat. But even with these two factors accounted for, it is concluded that Russia is a better place to live for an average person than US or EU. Keiser Report: Siberian Camembert (E705, ft. Ben Aris):

Heads up, dear readers!

The above Keiser Report is a good lead-in to my two upcoming urgent EARTH SHIFT REPORTS:

1. Grand Experiment Novorossia and the Birth of the New Revolutionary Monetary System.

2. Ruble Wars as the Beginning of the Death of the Dollar.

These two reports are being written as we speak and I will be posting them as they get completed. 

The reports will be posted on my new site LadaRay.info. Stay tuned!

 

 

 

The Russian Ruble Drop

These are my preliminary notes on the Russian ruble drop, since many people have asked me to address this developing situation. I am also getting questions regarding the oil price drop, OPEC actions and US involvement. I will either do a couple of articles, or possibly a donation-based Earth Shift Report on these topics, as they seem to be on everyone’s minds. Below are some of my preview thoughts on the subject of the Russian ruble drop.

Referenced is the latest Dr. Paul Craig Roberts’ (PCR) interview with Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog. Here is the complete interview: Paul Craig Roberts-US Government Most Corrupt on Earth. Quote: “No need for economics if US can rig everything.” I understood this 10 years ago, when I left my financial consultant position at Smith Barney/Citigroup.

PCR is discussing the ruble drop from his standpoint as top American economist and former U.S. Asst. Treasury Secretary in charge of domestic economy. PCR is a rare wise man among American economists and I always recommend my readers pay attention to his point of view; the link to his site is on my Resources page. PCR points out correctly that it is most likely the US government/FED, or a combination of the FED/US govt + hedge funds/Soros that has attacked the Russian ruble. My bet is on the latter combo. He also has some other most interesting insights into how the US government and hedge funds rig the markets.

PCR is also spot on regarding the fact that both Russian and Chinese government economic blocks are infested with neo-liberal, Western trained economists. This is what is dragging down and keeping back both Russian and Chinese economies. Russians in particular still adhere to a very harmful notion that they must have foreign investment to properly develop the economy. This is vestige of the Yeltsin era, the oligarchs that represented the interests of Western cartels, Rothschilds and others, as well as those Western advisors who screwed up Russian economy in the ’90s. There are more reasons, which I’ll discuss in future article.

PCR also correctly points out that when currency is fully convertible and tradeable, as Russin ruble is, the world reserve currency master (US) can do anything they want with that currency. This puts Russia at a huge disadvantage to the US and West in general. China is in a somewhat more protected position, but not for long. This folds very nicely into the topics I really need (a mental note) to discuss, such as the new monetary system and nationalization of the ruble.

Having been following closely the Russian press, political and economic analysis on various levels, as well as the Russian government and voice of the people, I will add this:

1. Both Russian (Chinese too) leaderships and people are sick and tired of the neo-liberals in power on the economic front;

2. The reason they are still there is because there is no alternative; in other words, you have to develop your own alternative concept and grow your own economists. Any science, including economics, is a system, which takes time to develop, test and implement.

3. Another reason is of course non-stop pressure and THREAT BY THE US/UK/WEST IN GENERAL on Russian and Chinese economies not to change.

Greg Hunter pressures PCR to say whether what US is doing is in fact an act of war against Russia. PCR admits (I respect his meticulous honesty) he doesn’t know whether and how this pressure on the ruble influences Russian economy, whether it has any effect or not.

Well, I do – and I plan to analyze all this in the future article(s).

Question for readers: Are you interested to hear more on these topics? Please indicate your interest by posting your comments:

Topic #1: Russian ruble and neo-liberal infestation of the Russian (and Chinese) economy.

Topic #2: What is behind the oil price drop/why OPEC acts this way/how Russia, US, UK and other countries are influenced by the oil price drop. I also have some predictions.

As an aside, I also received a question about the dire outlook by Evgeny Fedorov (ref: reader-posted video w. French subs in comments). I’ll touch upon that as well.

Dear readers, the more interest I get from you the better.

P.S. Incidentally, I hope you also take a good listen to my latest 2-part interview with TimeMonkRadio, Part 1 of which is posted here: Lada Ray Interview with TimeMonkRadio: 3D, 4D, 5D, raising consciousness and Earth Karma. Part 2 will come out next week. Even though the subject may seem different from the geopolitical and predictionary themes we usually cover on this blog, I assure you that they are closely related. Don’t be discouraged if at first it seems difficult to understand, although I made a huge effort to make it easily digestible. What we discuss in the interview offers a deeper understanding of our world and potential solutions on how to fix global problems, if people care to listen. For this interview we are offering an opportunity for the audience to ask questions – we are planning a follow-up show where the most interesting questions may be answered. Likes and comments are also very much appreciated both on the blog and YouTube.

Declaration of Cold War: What Chain of Events is US Provoking With New Hostile Move?

War drums are beating. The US is trying AGAIN to tip the world into the war mode.

The US House of Representatives voted almost unanimously (411 for, 10 against, 13 abstained) to condemn Russia for ‘aggression in Ukraine(?), Moldova(?) and Georgia(?).’ It also voted to create a more aggressive propaganda machine in Russian and Ukrainian, and to SEND AMERICAN WEAPONS TO UKRAINE. In addition, the resolution calls for the reinforcement of NATO and for the sale of US GAS TO EUROPE TO REPLACE RUSSIAN GAS. Link to RT video report.

I wonder who and when will finally vote to condemn the REAL aggressions of the USA against Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Serbia, present US aggression and financing of the illegal coup in Ukraine, and so many other aggressions all over the world? Who will condemn USA for spying on the entire world? What about the continued US and NATO aggression and intimidation campaign against Russia? What about color revolutions US sponsors all over the world?

Do you feel a sense of deja vu by any chance? I do. Remember how many times I warned of exactly these things. I said that these are the main purposes for the US ‘subversion of Ukraine’ (the fact that US invested only officially $5bln into ‘subverting Ukraine’ was publicly admitted by the US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland in December 2013).

I said this at various times:

1. Conflict in Ukraine is used to weaken Russia and EU at the same time.

2. Ukraine conflict is used to drive a wedge between Russia and EU, and at the same time, between Russia and Ukraine.

3. Ukraine to Anglo-American elites is loose change and cannon fodder to be thrown out as a used-up lemon. For Russia, Ukraine is their brothers and part of the Russian world to be respected and lived in peace with.

4. The continuing escalation of a conflict is necessary to paint Russia and Putin as aggressors, when the actual aggressor is US, with the kind help of Brussels, Germany, Poland and Lithuania. This is the same methodology used to perfection by the UK/US/France in the past to escalate Hitler’s aggression and to pit Germany and Russia (in the 20th Century, the two biggest rivals of the Anglo-American empire) in two past World Wars. Using proxies to fight their wars is the best Anglo-American achievement from hell.

5. US is itching to sell its own, more expensive gas to Europe, taking this market away from Russia.

For that purpose, McCain went to Bulgaria and other EU countries. THE VERY NEXT DAY after McCain’s and two other senators’ visit, Bulgaria announced that it was withdrawing from South Stream. Annual losses from such withdrawal for Bulgaria constitute $400-600 million + $150 million in losses from the switch of the Russian gas transit to Turkey to the new Black Sea pipeline. Altogether, up to $750 million per year in losses. What makes leaders of a country do something that is clearly bad for the country’s economy? Only arm-twisting can do that, and/or a bribe.

McCain’s arm-twisting worked well on the sold-out neocon-infested Bulgarian government. It didn’t work on Hungary (which because of that is now threatened with a color revolution), nor Austria. Austria’s President reportedly retorted that he didn’t tell US what to do, so he would appreciate it if US didn’t tell him who to conduct business with.

Still, subverting Bulgaria was enough – South Steam has ground to a screaching halt.

Notice that the US Congress cold war resurrection resolution (sounds like The Lord of the Rings – the dark powers on the rise)  appeared right after the noteworthy events I described in my previous article: German Vice Chancellor: No Ukraine in NATO; Russia, Let’s Make Up!

Below is a brief summary of the events I described in the above piece, plus analysis of the underlying geopolitical games and return moves by the US.

1. Europe has started looking for ways to make up with Russia and get EU-Russia relations back to normal. Additionally, Germany let it be known that they would not approve Ukraine in NATO, which is what US has been pushing for.

All the above is a big problem for the US hegemony. US needs to prevent this from happening. The only way of influencing the EU in these circumstances is to escalate the stand-off between Russia and the West, so Eu has no choice but to take anti-Russian position.

Last time they used the Malaysia Boeing downing in Ukraine to push reluctant EU towards a new round of anti-Russian sanctions. How about provoking Russia via arms supply to the Kiev junta this time, making Russia act to protect Donbass?

2. Russia announced the closure of the South Stream project.

No doubt US has rejoiced. US was the driving force behind the sabotage of the South Stream, projected to deliver gas directly to southern and central Europe. This route would bypass the unstable Ukraine, making the supply more secure and cheaper for many countries. The winners of this scenario would have been: Austria, Hungary, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovenia, Russia – and the entire EU economy. Losers from South Stream would have been: Ukraine and US. Now do your math: WHO BENEFITS AND WHO LOSES FROM THE CLOSURE OF SOUTH STREAM!

The US had been long pushing to sell their own shale gas to the EU, however expensive and inconvenient this may be.

Note, the US shale gas issue is a big problem in the US itself. It has been proven that this barbaric method of extraction causes untold damage to the environment, causing irreversible water damage, making potable water and soils unusable, and creating tremors and quakes. I have lived in Upstate NY, which is sitting on large shale gas deposits, and it is an ongoing struggle for the residents there to keep the shale gas vultures out of their state. Recently, the birthplace of shale gas in Texas has moved to ban this harmful practice.

Shale gas industry was touted in the US as a way out of the systemic crisis of the US economy. However, it’s not working so well. Due to low gas prices, most shale gas wells had to be capped as high cost of production made them unprofitable. To make shale gas worthwhile, US desperately needs a huge new market such as EU. To gain the EU market, US first needs to squeeze Russia out of it.

Now, isn’t it clear that US needs to do the following things:

1. Weaken EU, break EU’s will, subdue European countries – and make them buy more expensive gas contrary to EU’s interests.

2. Weaken Russian economy, vilify and discredit Putin, isolate and vilify Russia, so Russia can’t continue working with the EU, so consequently EU would be forced to buy expensive US gas, forsaking a much better deal it has with Russia presently.

3. Destabilize and destroy Ukraine, making it into a massive festering wound for both Russia and EU to deal with. Destabilization of Ukraine sabotages Russian gas supplies to the EU. In addition, the spinning of Ukraine as victim of the big, bad Russia also serves to create divisions and alienation on European continent.  This is a complete repeat of the Georgia 2008 scenario. See my predictions that came true: Striking geopolitical similarities: Sochi2014-Ukraine and #Beijing2008-Georgian war.

All the above US needs to do in order to make its grand plan of getting out of the crisis happen.

What is very important to understand is this: by making EU buy US shale gas, US not only solves its economic problems, but it also binds EU to itself irreversibly.

Once Russia has reoriented towards other markets, it will be hard to impossible to convince her to turn back. Russia is the historic and karmic global balancer. Hence, Russia’s re-orientations usually are precursors to big global changes to come. It is entirely in the interests of the EU to get closer to Russia, and that includes UK as well, although UK can serve as a bridge between US and new Europe. But it is entirely against the interests of the present-day US empire for any of that to happen. Living in peace and cooperation with the rest of the world is certainly in the best interests of the population of the USA.

Ideally, the US and those who still want to execute the US ‘full spectrum dominance’ global hegemony plans, want to convert the entire world into its vassals. I can tell you this will never happen, and perhaps those who formulate the insane US policies already get it on some level. At this time it appears the US is trying to inflict as much damage as possible on as many countries as possible as its plan B. And you know what, they are partially succeeding!

What we are observing is a war between the wounded, but very dangerous beast and the rest of the world.

Unfortunately, too many try to pretend this war doesn’t concern them. Some think they can remain on the beast’s side until tide changes and they can switch to the other side safely. It’s so much easier to have someone else fight your battles, incur hardship and losses, while you just arrive in the end and collect the trophies. This sounds like Romania, which first entered WWII on the side of the fascist Germany, occupying my city of Odessa, which was promised to Romania by Germany as one of the spoils of war. But when Germany started losing, Romania switched to the other side. And it sounds like US, who during the same WWII let the USSR bleed and fight until it became clear in 1944 that the USSR was winning, and that’s when US finally entered the war to collect their trophies.

rus bogatyr

Russian Vityaz’ – bogatyr’ (bogatyr’ means knight, protector; vityaz’ was a highly evolved master protector, whose powers were borderline mystical)

Yes, there are very few heroes. But Russia has no choice. Whether Russians want it or not, they are destined to always fight that dangerous beast that threatens to devour all. Russia’s is the hardest place to be. It is the hardest role to preserve balance in this crazy, unbalanced world. Allies are hard to come by, as usual. Few want to risk their lives and well-being to confront the beast; fewer still, have wisdom and foresight to do so successfully. Hiding out seems so much safer.

lord of the rings

I mentioned Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings for a reason. Tolkien, like Edgar Cayce before him, like other visionaries, such as Anastasia of Siberia (The Ringing Cedars) and Bulgarian Baba Vanga – and like yours truly – have been hinting at the same thing. The White City in The Lord of the Rings is written after Moscow (known historically as the White Stone City) and the ancient city of Great Novgorod. I write about that in Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? The Return of the King refers to the return of Russia. You can find some of my predictions about Russia and the historic and karmic role of various parts of the world in Predictions.

Putin’s Move and Profitable Russia-Turkey Alliance

Instead of the cancelled South Stream, Russia and Turkey announced the construction of the new arm of the Blue Stream. Turkey is to become the Russian gas distribution hub for further sales to Europe, or to any other market. Russia is also to build a new energy system for Turkey. The new system will allow for a more flexible gas distribution by sea or pipeline, depending on demand.

It’s interesting how secret the Putin/Erdogan agreements were kept until the last moment.

It has to be noted that the new agreement between Putin and Erdogan was only possible after Putin created a new paradigm with the Caspian Sea powers, including Iran, and notably, Azerbaijan. This is also connected with SCO advancements and Eurasian Union (EAU). Turkey is very interested in being admitted into SCO and EAU. I can predict that at least the SCO announcement will come out soon. These events happened very quietly and went unnoticed in the West; and actually, Russia likes that. The quieter, the better. In reality, these events are very important. I spoke about them briefly before, and I will discuss them in more detail in one of my upcoming interviews next year.

Azerbaijan is an interesting factor here, as well as Syria, Iran and Gagauzia (autonomy within Moldova). All these are connected with Russia and each other via invisible but meaningful links.

Incidentally, I have some interesting interviews coming up next week and in January 2015. Stay tuned!

After everything that happened, it would be naive to think US wouldn’t make return moves. It is more difficult to understand why so many seemingly intelligent people in the EU and US allow themselves to be duped and manipulated time after time by thugs in the US Congress, Pentagon, White House, and by the shadow puppet masters.

The problem for Russia is this: the moment US starts making any threatening moves, all EU’s good intentions evaporate and they dutifully fall in line. They forget their own good and profit, their own reasoning as to how important the relations with Russia are, and start again playing a role of the US lap dog – or US vicious pit bull.

This is the chain of events the US is trying to provoke with this new hostile move:

US sends its weapons to the Ukraine junta. Kiev uses these more advanced and deadly weapons against civilians in Donbass. Russia has no choice but to match that to protect Donbass from complete annihilation. US and EU start yelling that Russia interferes in Ukraine.

Then US pressures EU into adopting a new round of sanctions, contrary to EU’s own interests. These sanctions will be equally damaging to both Russia and EU. The winner is US.

Next, relations between Russia and EU hit a new low as Russia has no choice but to reciprocate. US gets to twist the arm of the weakened EU even more efficiently. US can now sell its shale gas to the EU and no one makes a peep.

EU becomes fully dependent and therefore, subservient to the US. Will US continue escalating, while Russia has no choice but to adopt further protective measures? The trust between Russia and EU is gone. After EU business is forced to leave Russia having been squeezed out by the US/EU sanctions, there will be even less opposition to the US policy in the EU and fewer forces left to protest against it.

Repeat of WWI and WWII. The next step is, yet again, to pit Central and Western Europe against Russia.

Now, people, ask yourselves – how many of you want this kind of outcome? I can tell you that it would be the last war. This human civilization will not get another chance. I wrote about that in my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER.

I rest my case.

 Important announcement!

I wrote last time about the upcoming THE PUTIN ENIGMA Earth Shift Report. I am still working on it and it will come out in due time. There are so many ideas I need to reconcile/transfer into 3D language and reality for it to materialize. So, please be patient.

But I have great news! I will be releasing another Earth Shift Report soon, based on the hot and timely news that are hitting the wires! I am sure you will find this report extremely fascinating and eye-opening.

Are we in fact moving out of the physical and crude 3D warfare?

The new name of the game is…

EARTH SHIFT REPORT

Wars of the Future Past or What is 4D Warfare:

Who Benefits from the Death of the French Oil Giant Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie?

Lada Ray’s Investigation 

demargerie

“There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars.” Christophe de Margerie, CEO of Total

October 21, 2014. Tragic news: The private transcontinental jet carrying Christophe de Margerie, CEO of the French oil and gas giant Total, crashed in Moscow Vnukovo-3 Airport. Vnukovo-3 isn’t your average overcrowded commercial outfit; it is an airport designed to receive the international VIPs and their private jets. The jet in question is Falcon 50, French made, cost $170-200 million. According to experts, it is one of the most reliable jets in existence, and it is designed for long-distance flights. Such a jet carrying a VIP such as Total’s CEO would be kept in excellent condition and the pilots would be top-notch. The crew on such jet is usually paid much more than commercial pilots.

What happened based on early reports: Moscow had a heavy snow aggravated by fog. Snow clearing ploughs were operating. The jet’s wing on take-off clipped the snow plough operating nearby, but the plane took off nevertheless. The driver of the plough was unharmed, but the Russian investigators announced that he was drunk. After 40 seconds in the air, the pilot sent distress call and attempted to land, but the plane burst in flames, killing all four aboard: three crew members and one passenger, Total CEO Christophe de Margerie. Here is a report about the main investigative points on RT Russia.

The questions investigators ask are: how could a drunk person be allowed to operate a snow plough? How could a dispatcher authorise a take-off with a plough present? What role did the snow and heavy fog play in all this? Did the pilot make a mistake? Did he, for example, drive off his course in the fog, resulting in the collision with the plough?

If I were them, I would also ask these questions: 1. Who and why gave the order to the snow plough operator to clean up the snow in the take-off area at that specific time? If the take-off area needed to be prepped first due to snow, then perhaps it was the correct order. Then, the Total jet needed to wait until the area was cleared of snow. Perhaps it was a lack of coordination between maintenance, dispatch, and the pilot? Did the pilot get pressured by the VIP to take off immediately, despite bad weather?

Also, I looked at the video with the plough operator and he seemed very shocked and distressed. One thing he didn’t seem at all was being drunk. Sure, the shock could have sobered him up, but I still have serious doubts he could have been that drunk. Summary of the event video, including the plough driver.

It appears Russian authorities decided to admit their fault even before the investigation and assign the blame internally due to the delicate political situation and in order to keep peace.

But let’s take a look at what went on behind the scenes geopolitically in the run-up to the event. What was the Total CEO doing in Moscow?

Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie took a different position on world events, USA, and Russia than the prevailing neo-liberal position of his government. He was against USA interference and dictate in European affairs, and for the expanded cooperation with Russia.

Total is the French oil and gas giant, ranking #6 in the world. As a result of the US sanctions, primarily the ban on dollar-denominated loans to companies operating in Russia, American oil giant Exxon Mobil was recently forced to fold its joint operations in Russia’s north. This is a big hit for Exxon’s bottom line. The company announced that they didn’t want to leave and planned to return as soon as the sanctions were over.

At the very same time, Total, which took a position of defiance against the US and EU sanctions, re-affirmed its participation in Russian projects. Moreover, Total was negotiating stepping in and replacing Exxon and other Anglo-American companies in the $27 billion Yamal liquefied natural gas project, and possibly, in the Arctic oil project as well. To accomplish that, Total was planning on using a combined euro, ruble and yuan financing. Total was in the process of securing a Chinese financing to replace the American loans. At the bottom of this article you will find a telling quote from a NASDAQ article of 9/22/2014 about Total’s negotiations with the Chinese banks.

Total CEO was in Moscow to discuss and negotiate the expanded deal. He was scheduled to fly back to Paris at 12:10 am, after the meeting with Russian PM, Dmitry Medvedev.

Total management appears to indicate that nothing will change in Total’s position and plans in regards to Russia as these are long-term plans that get drawn for 20-40 years forward. However, having taken a bold bet on the expanded cooperation with Russia, Total’s CEO didn’t get the chance to groom a successor. “He planned to, but never got around to it.” This leads some experts to believe that now that Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie is gone, the US will apply enormous pressure on the company to change its course towards Russia.

According to this expert (link to interview in Russian), “the death of Total’s CEO will impact the future not only of Total, but of the entire French economy.”

The above leads some to suspect a foul play in the death of Total’s CEO. Whether his death was the result of a tragic coincidence, poor coordination or bad weather, or whether a more sinister scenario was at play, the geopolitical circumstances paint a very different picture of the event than seems on the surface.

If we also take into account the other events: strange disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight over the Indian Ocean early this year and the recent MH17 false flag downing in Ukraine, the picture becomes even more tainted. We should also remember the strange recent failures of the Russian Proton-M cargo rockets. Strangely, all the failures of Russian rockets occurred when they were carrying foreign satellites . These rockets use American made electronics.

Incidentally, a new Proton-M rocket was just launched from the Baikonur in Kazakhstan without a hitch: the blast-off video. I could have predicted that there would be no problem with this launch because it was carrying a domestic Russian satellite. It should be clear that the reason only foreign satellite launches of Russian rockets fail is because someone is trying to discredit Russia as a reliable business partner. Before these mysterious recent failures, Russian space industry had no failures for over 40 years. I wrote about this problem in my prior articles, where I pointed out that in my opinion the reason behind failures was the Trojan software that could be activated or de-activated when necessary.

Add to that the fact that since General De Gaulle, France has been one of the most pro-Russian countries in the EU, plus the fact that historically, France was more willing to do business with Russia than many other Western countries, often serving as a bridge between the West and Russia. France is supposed to deliver two Mistral carriers to Russia and if it doesn’t, it will be a huge loss for the French economy. Presently, US is putting enormous pressure on France not to deliver the Mistrals, which would result in a broken contract and huge penalties.

France’s BNP Paribas earlier this year already fell victim to the US sanctions, having to pay a $10 billion penalty, essentially bankrupting the bank. Various representatives of the French government and industry have been registering timid protests against EU’s US dollar dependence and US interference in the EU affairs. CEO of Total was a very influential voice in France for cooperation with Russia.

What does all the above have to do with the Total CEO jet crash in Moscow? Perhaps nothing, perhaps everything. Time will show.

One thing is very clear: the death of Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie was against the interests of Russia, France, or Total itself.

One of the easy ways to damage a plane is sabotage. Who and why told the worker to snow-plough the take-off area at that time? Incidentally, the snow plough’s operator name is Vladimir Martinenko, a typical Ukrainian name. Is he from Ukraine, and what part thereof? How does he feel about what’s happening there? Where do his loyalties lie? Could he be bought, or convinced to do something illegal? These are all very good questions. He did survive the accident without a scratch, despite the plane’s wing getting so damaged by his plough that the jet burst into flames 40 seconds after takeoff. Does the plough operator’s name and origin have anything to do with the event? There are lots of Ukrainian citizens working in Russia, most in maintenance, cleaning, construction, driving and other blue-collar positions. Most Ukrainians are pro-Russian, but there are no guarantees. This may mean absolutely nothing, or it may mean everything. If I were investigating this occurrence, I would look into that.

Vladimir Markin, Head of the Central Investigative Commission of the Russian Federation, called the work of the airport authorities “sloppy,” and revealed the steps the investigation is taking. The snow plough driver has been arrested and the airport management may be temporarily suspended to prevent them from influencing the investigation. Interview.

Quote: Total Looks to China to Finance Russian Gas Project — 2nd Update 

By Selina Williams. Published on nasqaq.com, 9/22/14 – Link to post.

“French oil major Total S.A. on Monday said it was in talks with Chinese banks to help fund a major natural-gas project in Russia in a move to get around tightening Western sanctions over Ukraine.

Chief Financial Officer Patrick de la Chevardière said the company was looking at financing its share in the $ 27 billion Yamal liquefied natural-gas project in Chinese yuan, Russian rubles and euros.

“The effect of U.S. sanctions was that Yamal LNG will be prevented from raising any dollar financing,” Mr. de la Chevardière told a news briefing in London. Total is developing the onshore Yamal project in Russia’s Arctic north with independent Russian gas producer OAO Novatek and China’s CNPC.

Total would first look for financing for Yamal from export credit agencies such as France’sCoface and Italy’s Sace and then add Chinese and Russian finance, Mr. de la Chevardière said.

Total’s move comes as U.S. oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp. said last week is it winding down its drilling campaign in the Russian Arctic because of sanctions announced by the U.S. and European Union this month. The setback to Exxon’s $3.2 billion deal to explore for oil with Russia’s Rosneft in the Arctic could represent the biggest corporate casualty of sanctions so far.

Earlier this month, Russian officials said that restrictions on western technology for drilling in hard-to-reach areas such as the Arctic Sea could hurt future oil production if they persist.

Russia relies on oil and gas to provide the bulk of its revenues and Yamal is vital to Kremlin plans to increase the country’s share in the fast-growing global LNG market.

Total is in turn relying on Yamal, which is expected to start up in 2017, to provide a chunk of the French’s company’s future production growth. Yamal is estimated to hold proven reserves of 800 million barrels of oil equivalent.”

Jim Rogers about world economy and investments

Jim Rogers is a famed investor and he is VERY enamored over China. He’s been right a lot and I agree with him about quite a few things. On the other hand, he’s certainly been wrong quite a bit as well. One of the best examples of his bloopers was his eternal pessimism about Russia, even as Russian economy advanced 200-400% a year , due to his prejudices. He has since changed his stance on Russia and now believes Russia has one of the biggest investment potentials in the world, as he mentions in this talk. Hmm… 

Still, he is pretty good, and worth listening to, about China and Asia. He is also very good with commodities and is worth listening to on that count. I agree with his analysis on Asia and Africa. Disagree in part about South America (again his prejudices talking).

And I must say, I agree with his bearish stance on Ukraine – despite  lots of great (perhaps the best in the world) agricultural lands there, the prospect is bleak. I grew up in Ukraine and I can attest how rich and buttery the Ukrainian soils, called “black soils” or “chernozem,” are from personal experience. Unfortunately, as current Ukrainian turmoil confirms again and again, both the economic and political situations in Ukraine are not viable or conducive of development and growth. Pity…
