Warning! You may be shocked and may not believe your eyes at what you’ll see below. It may even turn your entire perception upside down, but keep reading!
Recently we’ve discussed what the sport has turned into in the past 20 or so years: REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games? In that report, of December 18, 2017, I said ‘Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz‘. There is no fairness and no hope of justice in sport at this time in our common reality. Pretty depressing, right?
For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.
True, there may be different vantage points and different interpretations of various events, and there has always been politics and geopolitics present in any Big sport.
You hear me often talk about multidimensional truths and the fact that we are transitioning into 4D. This means that everything that was a norm in 3D is changing. I would hope though, that things like honesty, honor and common decency will remain. It saddens me greatly that in our day and age these solid old notions have almost been rendered obsolete and useless. But let me assure you, they will always remain crucially important in any dimension and in any reality.
You may not believe it, but there was a time when the Olympic sport was honest, at least it made an effort to be so. And it was at the height of the Cold War.
1972, Munich Summer Olympics. American basketball is the best in the world. In the previous 36 years the US basketball team never lost, and at that moment in history US has won 63 straight games in Olympic competitions. And no wonder. After all, basketball is an original American sport, invented by a US college professor 150 years ago, who tied two fruit baskets in a college court and offered a new sporting competition to his students.
Unexpectedly, the young Soviet basketball team makes it to the Munich Olympic finals, after beating top contenders such as Cuba, to play against the US team. Throughout the game, both USSR and US go neck to neck, at an early point the USSR even being well ahead. After that the USA gains most points back, and again both go head to head. The match is nearly over and the USA is one point ahead, after 2 penalty throws give it 2 extra points. The score is USA 50 — USSR 49. The Soviet coach takes timeout 3 seconds before the end of game.
And then, something crazy begins to happen… Read the rest of this entry
REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games?
As we are approaching Christmas and New Year’s, this is the last major hard-hitting, heavy-duty geopolitical article of 2017, unless something extraordinary happens in the next two weeks! As a matter of fact, I hope this is the last report about geopolitics of sport and Olympics I’ll ever write. Let’s hope, although no guarantees as the pressure on Russia will continue and intensify before Russian elections. All pretexts to exert pressure and undermine elections will be used, and all weak links will be utilized, sport being one of the most prominent such weak links. However, when weak links are exposed to light, this also gives an opportunity to fix problems. Therefore, I hope Russians are paying attention, drawing conclusions and working on solutions. What solutions? Let’s talk about it below!
I’ve packed this piece with extra energy and embedded in it some extra interesting intel! Don’t miss!
THE VICIOUS PATTERN OF OLYMPICS SABOTAGE
Notice something? Every time Olympics, whether Summer or Winter, are conducted in any Anglo-American country, it’s peace and quiet. It took me a while to recall where the 2010 Winter Games took place. Oh, that’s right: Vancouver, CA! The only thing I remember from those Olympics is that nothing, absolutely nothing happened there, except that locals were unhappy with all the money spent by authorities on the Games, rather than local projects. Following that, the 2012 Summer Olympics took place in London. Do you remember any problems, scandals, attacks or sabotage associated with those? Nope, even though there was a lot of prior noise that the Games may be targeted by terrorists. No terrorists were in sight.
The only notable thing about London Olympics was that the UK won 3rd position in team competition, pushing Russia to fourth. UK never was anywhere near 3rd before, so the result was very surprising. But no, obviously they didn’t dope! They never used the ‘home team advantage’ and were never shielded by the bought-and-paid-for WADA. Never!
And now it gets really interesting. Let’s, one by one, go over the Olympics taking place OUTSIDE the Anglo-American, and especially, outside of the ‘Western club’ sphere of influence. Spoiler! Whenever Olympics do happen outside of the Anglo-American world, it’s as if someone pulls a switch and all kinds of disasters befall the host country, or various weird events soil and sabotage the Olympics.
Let’s look at the whole pattern chronologically.
2008 – Beijing Summer Olympics, China, 08/08/08.
The famous start date, 08/08/08, was carefully chosen by the Chinese to be as auspicious and lucky as possible, based on Chinese numerology. Yet, during the ambitious global Olympic torch relay there were unprecedented attacks against the Olympic flame carried by Chinese representatives through major Western cities such as Paris and London.
Just as the spectacular Opening Ceremony — the pride of the Chinese — was unfolding at Beijing Olympic Stadium on August 8, Mikhail Saakashvili and Georgia began a full-scale military assault on tiny breakaway S. Ossetia, killing in the process several Russian peacekeepers. Prior to attack, US Sec of State Condoleezza Rice visited Georgia and gave Saakashvili the green light.
This prompted Russia’s response and the 4-day Russia’s ‘peacekeeping op’ against Georgia, resulting in Abkhazia and S. Ossetia permanently seceding from Georgia. Instead of being focused on the first ever Chinese Olympics, China’s ‘moment of glory’ was soiled by this war. Western MSM talked about Russia’s ‘attack against poor Georgia,’ not about the Games. The West ‘rallied’ and imposed that infamous first set of major ’08 sanctions against Russia, complicated also by the ongoing gas war with Ukraine.
The primary goals for this major provocation were: painting Russia as aggressor in the eyes of the Western sheeple; starting sanctions against Russia; creating animosity between parts of post-Soviet space and Russia; preventing Germany/EU and Russia from coming closer in a mutually beneficial cooperation; plus, as a bonus, attempting to create a rift between China and Russia as a consequence of the Chinese being peeved at the disruption of the Olympics. The latter point completely backfired, but the former have achieved a temporary and partial success. To fix that, the next blow was needed, that of the Kiev Maidan and coup; the pretext used would be that of Sochi Olympics.
2010 — Vancouver Winter Olympics, Canada — nothing to report, total peace and quiet on the western front.
2012 — London Summer Olympics, UK — nothing to report, except a disproportionate number of completely unexpected wins by the UK team (and all Anglo-American teams!) vs. an incredibly large number of equally strange near misses of gold medals by Russian athletes who were favorites. This strange motherload of… ahem… ahem… ‘coincidences’ pushed the UK team to 3rd team placement and pushed Russia out of top 3 into 4th.
THE MOTHERLOAD OF ALL ATTACKS WAS SAVED FOR SOCHI OLYMPICS!
2014 — Sochi Winter Olympics, Russia.
As a private observation I want to say that the organization of the Sochi Games was spectacular, the venue was unique and gorgeous and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies were out of this world. I loved the lavish Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony, but I thought the Sochi Closing Ceremony was the coolest.
Sochi Closing Ceremony — The Sky Ship
Sochi Closing Ceremony — The most heartfelt moment, giant Mishka the Mascot sheds final tear after blowing out the Olympic flame. This was a reminder of the grandfather of the Sochi Mishka, and the famous moment when the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics Mishka shed his tear, before flying into the sky. Per eyewitnesses, everyone at the Luzhniki Olympic stadium cried back then.
Efforts to compromise Russia and disrupt Sochi Olympics:
1. Before the Olympics there was a storm of accusations in Western MSM that Sochi wasn’t ready, complete with falsified and outdated pics and ‘evidence’ from prior years when construction was not yet complete. Of course, Sochi was ready on time and looked resplendent for the Games.
2. Russians were politically careful and even let out of jail the infamous Pussy Riot and the even more infamous Khodorkovsky, so that Western MSM couldn’t spoil Sochi events by howling about human rights violations in Russia. Pussy Riot was immediately swept up by the Clintons and flown to the US; Khodorkovsky was snatched up by Germany, and then settled in Switzerland. Disregarding their release promises, both immediately re-started their anti-Russian activity, aided by their sponsors, but with no success.
3. After Pussy Riot and Khodorkovsky release, they couldn’t find anything else to pin on Russia, so the ‘gay’ non-issue was de-dusted and blown out of proportion, along with Western threats of boycott. (Read my full article on that: How PUTIN views gay people and gay issue? ~COMPLETE MULTIDIMENSIONAL TRUTH!)
4. ALL Western leaders, except a couple of those who came as private citizens, boycotted the Sochi Opening Ceremony, to which they all received invitations. They all made a big political show of that boycott.
5. As Russia went into final preparations for the Games, Ukraine Yanukovich’s EU association trap was laid out and Kiev Maidan was deliberately instigated to begin in late 2013. The Maidan and US/EU pressure on Yanukovich continued escalating as Sochi Games opened in February 2014. As I’d revealed multiple times since the start of this blog in the beginning of 2014 (corroborated by many sources), Kiev Maidan was organized, financed and constantly re-ignited by the collective West (US, EU, etc) for the purpose of weakening and hurting Russia, and for the purpose of making Slavs hate and kill other Slavs.
The timing was chosen deliberately to coincide with Sochi Olympics (as I also explained in 2014) so that:
a. To steal the thunder moment from Russia and spoil the Games
b. Make sure Russia is tied up and cannot respond properly and timely to the Ukraine situation.
The culmination — the February 22 Kiev coup, ousting of Yanukovich and formation of illegal and blood-stained Kiev junta — all this took place in the middle of Sochi Olympics, tying Russia’s hands to do anything about it. The whole country helplessly watched as the closest to Russians people were turned into enemy right in front of their very eyes.
I also predicted at the same time in 2014 that Russia would engage in Ukraine the moment Sochi Games were over in order to save what was possible to save. And that’s what happened: Crimea seceded and re-joined Russia, and Russia began supporting Donbass. See my 2014 articles under Cat. Ukraine.
The Kiev coup, Russophobic ukro-nazis, Western MSM attacks against Russia and subsequent war against Donbass, had foreshadowed Olympics. Despite that, Sochi still managed to become one of the most memorable, exciting and successful international sporting events ever.
But that wasn’t all. Recently, in late 2017, WADA and IOC took away most Russian medals from Sochi Olympics and stripped Team Russia of its 1st place. The new escalation of the ‘Olympic Hybrid World War III’ against Russia has reached a whole new low.
UNDERMINING PUTIN BEFORE ELECTIONS,
UNSPORTING BEHAVIOR BY THE WEST
& LAST ATTEMPT TO SAVE NWO AND GLOBALISM
1. The stripping of the medals from Russian athletes and taking away Team Russia’s first place has to be construed as a vengeance by small-minded dark entities, due to the fact that Russia never bent, nor succumbed to the West’s domination. According to them, Russia was supposed to stay down forever after the devastating ’90s. They can’t forgive Russia for re-building and making strides forward, despite all attempts to break Russia’s back. Most importantly, they can’t forgive Putin for rebuilding Russia and making her stronger.
2. This is a personal attack against Vladimir Putin before Russian Elections 2018. Just like everything they do, it is deliberately timed to immediately precede Russian Elections on March 18, 2018. It is an attempt to divide Russian society and make the part of Russian society favoring sport blame Putin for the situation with Russian athletes, thus costing him votes.
Just watch the months preceding Russian Elections. You’ll clearly see that attempts at undermining Putin and sabotaging Russia will continue growing and accelerating!
I can tell you already that this isn’t going to work. But that’s where the whole viciousness and impossible darkness of the forces who orchestrate these things comes through: they know it probably won’t work, yet they still do it! Some say that these dark Western forces hope that ‘perhaps it’ll work this time,’ but this doesn’t hold water. I don’t buy it. They are not that stupid — evil and disgustingly low, yes; stupid -no.
The actual goal by these dark humans is to exact revenge against Russia, and make Russia and Russians hurt, while they gloat in their filthy caves filled with their ill-gotten riches.
3. This is also a vengeful attack against Russia for winning in Syria and saving that country from disintegration. This is part of their underhanded vengeance for destroying the ISIS/Al Nusra infrastructure and 32,000 prized militants, handpicked, trained and financed by US, EU and Saudis.
Incidentally, the new Russian intel just in. This intel suggests that US is rebuilding the ISIS terrorist army in Syria by saving some prized terrorists and re-branding them by another name.
4. Most importantly, based on her historic and karmic role, Russia the Great Balancer headed by Putin, and together with China and others, in the past 5-6 years succeeded in derailing NWO globalist plans. Russia, in alliance with others, is creating the beginnings of a new world system, countering the old Western-dominant structure. Russia continues slowly and carefully re-balancing the world away from the West, and this is what the West cannot forgive Russia.

SABOTAGE CONTINUES — BRICS UNDER ATTACK
2016 — Rio Summer Olympics, Brazil. These were the first ever Olympics for Brazil and first ever Games in S. America. They were secured for Brazil, the rising economy and along with Russia and China, a fast developing member of the BRICS, by ex-president Lula da Silva. He made a passionate plea to IOC and Brazilians proudly partied through the night when Rio was awarded 2016 Olympics. As Brazil Olympics went into its final preparation phase, a soft color revolution began, resulting in impeachment of president and Lula’s protegé, Dilma Rousseff. This was followed by investigation for corruption of both Lula and Dilma. The result was a pro-US president coming to power in Brazil.
I have a major FREE report on what went on: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions.
Russian and Ukrainian athletes are friends — Rio Olympics 2016 (Russians wear red-blue-and-white uniforms, and Ukrainians light-blue-and-yellow uniforms)
The next round of Rio scandals centered around, what else (!), Russian team. Many of Russian athletes were suddenly banned. Some of these athletes already were en route to Rio, still not sure they would be allowed to compete. The lives of those who were allowed to compete in Rio were made hell, barring their access to training facilities, badgering them with constant tests at all hours of day and night, disrupting their regimes and humiliating them. Some Western athletes in Rio displayed a very unsporting behavior, giving Russians a cold shoulder and refusing to shake hands on the podium, or even mocking them in public.
Russia rented an entire multi-story building for its team in the Olympic village. As a result of bans, 1/3 of the building stood empty. The organizers bullied Russian team into giving up part of the building, thus compromising Russian team’s security and privacy.
Don’t be surprised at all this cynical persecution. After all, The Lord of the Flies was a typical Western book, now being manifested in real life.
THE DIRTY GEOPOLITICS OF TWO KOREAS & OLYMPICS MANIPULATION
S. Korea is more or less within the sphere of the US influence, BUT it is still an Asian country, which has been making strides to become more independent of the US. In order to keep S. Korea in its sphere of influence, US constantly escalates tensions with N. Korea, which then in turn threatens S. Korea with missiles. However, S. Korea really doesn’t want a war with the North. S. Koreans periodically stage rebellions against US, however meek, stating they want to resolve any differences diplomatically.
US perceives N. Korea as an extension of China and Russia. In this sick geopolitical game S. Korea is designated by the US as cannon fodder against N. Korea. Every time S. Korea strays off its prescribed role, US squeezes it to make it toe the line.
And that’s what is happening now. US is using the pretext of Olympics to humiliate and make S. Korea feel unsure of what to expect. The reputation of S. Korea and that of its Games is hanging in the balance. People are already calling PyeongChang Games ‘the worst ever.’ Many have decided to boycott them.
Another thing to take into account is that Russia’s reputation globally, and specifically in Asia, is growing by leaps and bounds, while USA’s is diminishing daily. S. Korea is trying to do business with Russia, also enlisting Russia as primary moderator and peacemaker in the Korean conflict. Additionally, N. Korea expressed on several occasions a belief that they would only trust Russians moderators, should any negotiations take place.
Trump’s constant provocations against N. Korea in the run-up to the Olympics are also designed to promote instability and insecurity during the Games. In this regard, the presence of the Russian team would serve as a guarantee of sorts that N. Korea would not fire missiles to disrupt the event. S. Koreans are convinced that Russian presence would deter such actions by the North. This is the reason S. Korea attempted to convince IOC to lift the Russian team ban.
ANGLO-AMERICANS HAVE USURPED KEY POSITIONS IN WADA AND IOC
Of course it is naive to think this is possible. IOC is over 80% staffed with Anglo-Americans. 17 seats belong to US, 12 belong to Canada, 7 or 8 each – UK and Australia, and a few others belong to various EU countries. China has a few, and entire continents, such as Africa and S. America hardly have one or two. S. Korea has one seat, if memory serves. Russia has none!
The WADA situation is even worse — practically all key positions belong to Anglo-Americans.
Now, didn’t I declare since 2014 that NWO is dead? It is dead or dying in so many ways and so many places. Putin and Russia, as well as other countries, such as China, are working on shifting the world into a different mode.
But as it turns out — not in sport! I usually say that the Big sport is a lagging indicator — it is one of the last to change. Globalists and NWO have been successfully hiding out in sport bureaucracy, IOC, WADA, FIFA and such.
Russians are paying the price for putting the sport on the back burner while dealing with more urgent and serious issues, and for playing by the rules imposed by the West. But even this status quo won’t last forever…
Will Russia the Great Balancer ever say NO? Will Russia act to change the status quo and start alternative Olympics?
RUSSIAN MINISTRY OF DEFENCE DELEGATION IN N. KOREA
Russian MoD delegation has just left N. Korea, trying to agree on some sort of compromise and de-escalate tensions between Trump and Kim Jong-un.
It’s high time for Russia to return to N. Korea! The ties with N. Korea were pretty much severed by the USSR around 1970s, when there was a disagreement between Communist Parties — N. Koreans thought Russian communists were getting too soft and too westernized (oh, the irony!).
Russia’s return to N. Korea, signified by MoD’s visit, has been pre-empted by the Russian Duma delegation’s recent visit to Pyongyang, during which Koreans reportedly conveyed that they only trusted Russia as partner and peace moderator (note — not China, N. Korea’s closest ally!).
A suggestion that N. Korea may have invited Russia to open a military base is a reasonable one. I think this would do a lot to rebalance and stabilize the region. This would also be a guarantee from a US attack against N. Korea. Even the mere talk of opening such a base will ensure that US will be careful not to attack N. Korea. (See: ‘Mars Attacks’ in Reverse! New joke about Russia, US, Putin, Trump and Mars).
This increased political and military activity by Russia in N. Korea, in view of USA’s threats and Russian athletes’ bans, is certainly not a coincidence.
The important thing to understand is that the enemies in the region: N. Korea and S. Korea, plus Japan, all want Russia to engage, correctly assuming that US is there only to provoke war, and Russia is there to resolve the problem and promote peace, as was proven by Syria (Putin Makes Surprise Visit to Syria in the Company of Su-30 Jets to Declare Victory and the End of Op).
S. Korea wants Russia to engage and, despite being afraid of the US, it has been making some meek steps to secure Russia’s benevolence by attempting to help re-instate Russian athletes and invite Vladimir Putin to the Olympics. I can tell you with absolute certainty that Putin of course won’t go, but maybe, just maybe, he will send someone in his stead as a gesture of good will. In this regard, note also that IOC banned Russian officials of any sort from attending the Olympics, so any invitation of Russian officials would be the host country stepping over IOC decision. I don’t know if S. Korea is brave enough to show that middle finger to Anglo-Americans.
LIST OF SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA & RUSSIAN ATHLETES
IOC ruled that Russia as a country is banned from S. Korean Olympics. Russian anthem, flag and any Russian symbols are all banned. This is a clear attack against the Russian State. It is also an ugly attempt to humiliate every Russian, no matter where he/she lives.
Russian athletes won’t be able to wear their country’s uniforms made for this occasion, and have to wear… actually, no one knowns what they’ll wear. If they win, they will have to listen to some Olympic anthem no one knows and compete under the white flag.
Athletes who may be able to compete are only those who were NOT at Sochi Olympics, which means younger and less experienced athletes. But it’s still case-by-case. Each of them will have to go through a rigorous commission and elimination process to prove that they are ‘clean.’
In other words, the West has become a brutal machine of suppression. What human rights? They now practice presumption of guilt and collective punishment for individual and unproven infractions.
Another thing I anticipate is that the lives of these poor athletes will be made hell during the Games, yet again. This already happened during Rio 2016 and during last athletic world championship. They will be woken at night before competitions for constant doping tests; they won’t be allowed to practice in peace and kept in a nervous state at all times.
The devilish plan here is to dislodge and disorient these inexperienced young people to such a degree that they would lose. Then IOC and WADA will be able to say — see, we knew it, Russians are unable to compete without doping.
Russian team is banned from participating in the opening ceremony. There is no team — each of them is supposed to be there as an individual, and they all will be referred to as ‘athletes from Russia.’
All Russian officials who usually go to the Games to cheer and support athletes, are also banned from being present at the Olympics. Russian sports minister Mutko has been banned for life. Russian Olympic Committee chair Zhukov has been expelled from IOC.
IF all these humiliating conditions by IOC and WADA are fulfilled and all Russian athletes ‘are proven clean’ throughout the Games by the IOC and WADA gestapo, then MAYBE Russians can participate in the closing ceremony under Russian flag — if said gestapo feels benevolent enough. Not only I doubt it would happen, but even if it does, I feel this is adding insult to injury.
WHY ARE RUSSIANS STILL GOING TO S. KOREA OLYMPICS?
Despite all this, the meeting of Russians Olympians unanimously decided that they wanted to go and compete.
This followed the announcement of Vladimir Putin that Russia will not boycott the Games and that athletes should decide for themselves if they are going or not. The latest I’ve heard is that Russians are hoping about 200 athletes will be allowed to compete.
Why did Putin take such stance?
This was the only reasonable thing for Putin to do. If Russia announced the official boycott of the Olympics, this would have created descent on the part of some Olympians. If such Olympians were to defect so they could still compete, a big political scandal would be blown up and the West would be happy to snatch up those ‘political martyrs’ for their purposes. Putin yet again would be branded ‘tyrant’ and ‘dictator,’ as I am hearing from some American and EU trolls whom I periodically have to ban on my blog. This could cost Putin votes and create tension in Russian society as such athletes would also have unhappy coaches, teammates, parents, friends and thousands of fans.
By allowing athletes to take responsibility for their own decisions, Putin minimized the damage.
Still it’s important to understand that Putin was deliberately put in an awkward position before elections, where no good solution could be found. Either solution has a significant downside. By allowing Russian athletes to compete, a significant part of Russian society that feels Olympics should be boycotted by Russia, was made unhappy.
In this situation every person must make individual decisions. I can tell you for sure I personally will be boycotting these Olympics and any future Olympics thereafter. But I’ll happily watch the renewed Good Will Games or any similar international events organized by Russia.
Why did the US suddenly announce that Team USA may not be going to S. Korea?
I believe this was yet another attempt to play S. Korea. It was sort of veiled threat that unless S. Korea toes the line, US will basically cancel the Games. I also detect a certain behind-the-scenes manipulation of IOC there. Moreover, this was an additional attempt — not a very bright one — at provoking N. Korea. It has to be understood that it was indeed an idle threat, which will go no further. Of course the US team will be going to S. Korea, barring some totally catastrophic events, which so far I don’t foresee.
When will Russia finally understand she cannot win when all odds are against her? When, if ever, will Russia organize alternative games?
I predicted this in my 2015-16 articles about Rio Olympics ban and Russian doping scandal. Russia and Putin won’t do anything before March 2018 Elections. After elections are over, and after Russia goes through the ordeal of hosting the 2018 World Cup, only then Russia can think about alternative Games. And that work will take years to figure out and organize. The USSR’s Good Will Games would be a great experience to draw on.
My personal opinion has always been that Russia needs to forget about Olympics and Western-dominated sports, and begin alternative sports competitions ASAP. In my opinion, Russia is wasting time. However, there are geopolitical realities and pressures some are unwilling to deal with, until it gets really bad. Only then Russia responds.
I can only say so much within the limited scope of this one report. However, I had previously touched on many other important and related issues. I strongly recommend you read my past articles on the topic, which would give you the complete picture and solid understanding:
Hybrid War: Whole Truth About Doping and Demands to Ban Russia from #RioOlympics ~ this report from 2015 explained everything!
See all my prior articles in CATEGORY Geopolitics of Sport & Olympics
To finalize this report, I want to tell you about a new sabotage planned by WADA and the collective West, call it Dark State (my definition), deep state, globalists or NWO. By any name, the essence remains the same.
What is happening with Football World Cup 2018? Can Russian football team be banned from competing at 2018 World Cup, while Russia is hosting the event? Will WADA force through the ultimate humiliation?
I always thought that the pride and prestige of getting to host Olympics or World Cup wasn’t worth the trouble. Big sport was always used for geopolitical gain, but lately, when one faction (the West) has gained complete control of all sports institutions, it has become a tool of ultimate globalist manipulation.
In addition, all of the Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz. Athletes are in it for future endorsements and lavish payouts, big pharma makes a killing on it, multinationals buy advertisement slots worth billions, and MSM makes a big show out of it. The Olympics business is worth $400 bln and World Cup is worth even more!
I knew from the start Russia would be targeted for humiliation if it hosted World Cup, and especially, so close to Russian Elections. Every time a country hosts a major sporting event, it makes itself vulnerable to hybrid 4D warfare, arm-twisting and ultimate manipulation. In fact, the county host is normally held hostage to the event, as I have illustrated above.
In prior years several attempts have been made to take World Cup away from Russia by trying to play the ‘Russia bribed FIFA’ card. That provocation failed completely, as it was proven that it was in fact Qatar who bribed FIFA, not Russia. But since Qatar is in bed with the US, no one tried to take next World Cup from Qatar. As a revenge for failed Russia-thrashing, FIFA chairman and all top officials were ousted with a big scandal, and one went to jail. But even the new, completely subservient to the globalists FIFA has failed to do anything about taking World Cup 2018 away from Russia.
Failing that, they switched their attentions to Russian football team, trying to implicate it in doping through WADA. If Russian football (soccer) team is banned from participating in the World Cup hosted by Russia, that would be a first, and very humiliating for the host country. That’s what this is aimed at.
Just like in the above Olympics case, the target here, first and foremost, is Vladimir Putin. The goal is to put Putin in an awkward position and make some of his election base hate him for depriving them from enjoying the Russian team play.
I have to also say that Russian football team is normally not much of a contender and they usually play weakly. They are not expected to win much and it’s hard to imagine them doping if they play so poorly. But that’s the thing. Those who plan these attacks don’t even care if what they do holds no water. They just want to weaken Putin before elections and make Russians feel humiliated. If they damage their allied countries or destroy the international sports along the way — they don’t care. In other words, the hell with the rest of the world.
Bottom line, there is a massive conspiracy and ganging up against Russia in sports.
The silver lining is that this will force Russia to eventually act. It will take some time, but eventually Russia the Great Balancer will rally and begin the necessary SHIFT in sport, just like it is doing so in other areas of international life. Eventually, WADA, IOC, FIFA, World Cup and Big sport will have to change. If they refuse to change, they will die off.

Per RT: The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has accused Russia of systematic doping violations and cover-ups involving Russian officials, including the sports minister. It calls for Russian athletes to be barred from competitions. Russian Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko speaks to RT over WADA claims. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/6vy8.
Video interview with Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko (with Eng translation)
The Russian Anti-Doping Agency has had its license suspended a week after the country was provisionally banned from international athletics events over a doping scandal. This is leaving the entire Russian sport in a limbo.
Notice that initially WADA was only investigating Russia, coming out from the very start with a bombshell at an international conference. They demanded very loudly a ban for the entire Russian sport, regardless of who did, or didn’t dope. But after criticism that WADA was singling out Russia for purely political reasons, they PROMPTLY added several more countries to the list of anti-doping violators. These countries were not an issue just several days ago.
Notice also that in the new ‘list’ Ukraine is also present – obviously added to deflect any accusation that it’s a payoff to Russia for Ukraine. However, the biggest by far proven doping violators, such as UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are nowhere near this list. Moreover, while this bogus list includes other countries, only Russian athletic team is being banned from competition, including athletes like Elena Isinbayeva (multi-olympic/ world champion and record golder), who had never doped.
Today’s video from RT:
Clearly, the addition of more countries to the ‘list’ is a way to camouflage what WADA is really doing: an attempt to sidetrack, broadside Russia and dampen the spirits of the Russian athletes and people. In addition it is a personal attack against the Russian Sports Minister, Vitaly Mutko, who had done a lot for the development of the Russian sport since he took office. It was very convenient for the West when Russian sports were in a shambles after the collapse of the USSR, and they wanted to keep it that way. It is very inconvenient when Russian team presents a real competition.
Considering that in our 3D world national sport is something that lifts the spirit of a nation, it is a strike against all of the Russian people, an attempt to damage their spirit and put doubt in their mind. We had already been through this after the collapse of the USSR, when the entire country felt disillusioned and depressed, thinking they did something wrong.
It never occurred to anyone that the USSR was being deliberately sabotaged and destroyed from abroad. Sure, the fact that USSR/Communist Party leaders made a huge number of mistakes and miscalculations didn’t help. But the fact remains: the deliberate act of economic, financial and PR sabotage and diversion took place to do away with the USSR with the ultimate goal to destroy Russia. In the ’90s, the sabotage and undermining of the Russian spirit continued and even intensified. It was only by the end of the ’90s – beginning of 2000s that we finally began understanding what was happening and why.
Ukraine events, anti-Russian sanctions and the Ruble sabotage last year were a part of the same hybrid war. But until now, they never dared to directly attack the Russian sport.
Soviet sport was the world’s best by far and there really was no competition. At that time no one would dare to attack Russian sport like this. But since the USSR collapse Russia let go of its influence and interests in many areas, including sport. People in the international organizations were substituted for those convenient for (and bribed by) the West. Rules and regulations were developed that favored the West. Now Russians are finding out that it’s not enough to win – it’s also who you know and how much you pay.
I know some might say: what’s so important about sport? I am personally neutral towards sport, but in this 3D reality sport is very important. It serves not only as a means to stay fit and as entertainment, but also as a means of lifting the spirit, inspiring and maintaining the pride of a nation. Sport can be a very effective geopolitical weapon as well, and it used to be (until USA and West sabotaged 1980 Moscow Olympics) a tool of peace and cooperation. If you think this is something new, no – all the above characteristics of the sport were the same two and three thousand years ago. From Mesopotamia and ancient Incas and Maya to the first Greek Olympics and medieval knights’ tournaments…
If you still think that it’s just a co-incidence having nothing to do with the hybrid war against Russia, then I can tell you that the Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu is also under attack. He’s the man who literally turned around the Russian defence and military. The attacks on Shoygu involve some bogus accusations that his daughter owns several apartments and a dacha. It sounds pitiful, I know – that’s probably because they failed to find anything of substance on him. Despite this, the pro-West 5th column in Russian media is attempting to create a storm in a teacup regarding Shoygu.
The members of the Russian 5th column in media/PR/civil orgs/education are called the ‘grant eaters.’ They work based on USA/West’s financial grants to write certain things their masters tell them to write. Russians at large are onto them, and of course, this pitiful attempt will have the opposite effect.
And oh, coincidence! Accusations against Shoygu appear during Russian Syria campaign and while the new escalation of the Pridnestrovie-Moldova-Romania-Ukraine conflict is anticipated!
Pridnestrovie is the break-away former territory of what is now Moldova (former USSR republic of Moldavia). It has been under Russian peacekeepers’ protection since the 1992 war. This quiet ongoing war is something that very few know of, or understand. But it’s much more important geopolitically than many imagine. I do plan a new Earth Shift Report, where I’ll explain all the intricacies of what’s happening in Moldova, Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Bulgaria, Balkans and elsewhere around Black Sea. Stay tuned for ESR7: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Last but not least, both Minister of Defence Sergey Shoygu and Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko are Putin’s men in the Russian government, as opposed to the so called ‘economic block’, which is considered pro-Western in its entirety. Therefore, attacks against Mutko and Shoygu are in fact attacks against Putin.
Below, let’s look in more detail into this new low in a hybrid 4D war. It’s directed against Russia, but it’s more than that. It’s a desperate attempt to hang on to the USA’s world hegemony and it’s a losing war to preserve NWO, something that seemingly worked for the Western elites for 20 years – until Russia destroyed their plans.
NWO and Hybrid 4D War Against Russia
Initially, I didn’t want to write about this new low in the hybrid war against Russia. But the fight is getting uglier and uglier; in light of that, I felt it was important that I weighed in. As the former world hegemon starts losing and the world sees more and more clearly that the king is naked, they simply don’t know how else to pinch or harm Russia.
Ukraine didn’t work out as they had hoped – instead of isolation, Russia consolidated her international positions and reputation, while Putin’s rating, both domestically and internationally, is through the roof; anti-Russian sanctions failed and EU is rebelling against the US; except for Ukraine, color revolutions aren’t working; Russia pulled a shocking game changer in Syria, proving that US wasn’t even trying to fight ISIL. And to top it off, to the US embarrassment, Iraqi parliament and US-hand-picked government is attempting the moves to ask Russia for help in bombing ISIL on Iraqi territory, thus snubbing American puppet masters. What a slap in the face!
We have discussed some of the dirty games being played in my latest article: The Real Reason OPEC President Was Arrested in London.
FIFA Scandal, World Cup and Joseph Blatter
In it I gave and example of the FIFA scandal and the ousting of its long-time president Joseph Blatter. The thing is that corruption within the organization notwithstanding, Blatter was a friend of Russia. Just before the scandal broke out he visited Russia and Putin. He was also a big proponent of the 2018 World Cup in Russia and supporter of the development of the Russian sport.
Russia never hosted World Cup, which is considered the Olympics of football. I personally am indifferent towards football (US: soccer), but many in Russia are ardent supporters and the country at large has been ecstatic to host the world’s most important football competition. This has to do with national pride, but also with the love of the sport. Regardless of how one feels about football or sport in general, my goal is always to present a balanced, truthful and complete picture.
And the truth is this: naturally and in line with their proclaimed goal of expanding the world of football and giving nations that never hosted the chance, FIFA, and Blatter personally, wanted to award World Cup to Russia and other countries that showed enthusiasm and dedication.
Knowing how well received World Cup was by Russians, the FIFA scandal was timed in such a way as to try to take the hosting rights away from Russia. THIS was really the reason for the whole FIFA scandal. The idea was to throw a lot of loud accusations in corruption and bribery and see if they would stick – if they could be pinned on Russia. If it was possible to prove that Russians got the 2018 World Cup via bribery, then the next step would begin: humiliate Russia by stripping it of the championship – and vilify, vilify, vilify on all levels possible.
The plan didn’t work. It turned out that the bribes were not Russian. They came from Qatar, which was awarded 2022 World Cup. The thing is that FIFA votes and awards two consecutive World Cups in one meeting. So, Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022 were awarded together.
According to witnesses, Qatar representatives carried with them envelopes stuffed with $20,000 each and just gave them away to everyone in the audience as ‘mementos.’ Just imagine what was going on behind the scenes and how much money was passed under the table, if $20,000 multiplied by thousands of participants were given out like little trifles.
But Qatar wasn’t the target here – Russia was.
Despite the obvious failure, Western MSM and politicians continued howling that Russia (notice – not Qatar) should be stripped of World Cup hosting. FIFA, which under Blatter conducted independent policies, refusing to bow to the Anglo-American bosses, refused to transfer it from Russia. Blatter stood firm and the scandal died down. No one demanded that Qatar be stripped of its 2022 World Cup.
The result was the ousting of Blatter under bogus and falsified pretexts as a lesson to others to toe the line.
It didn’t work out for World Cup. Now, the next target is 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.
Sochi 2014 and Kiev maidan
Let me remind my readers that 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi endured a large number of various attacks and calls to boycott them – something that is prohibited under Olympic rules. Moreover, the very maidan and violent coup in Kiev was timed to coincide with the Sochi Olympics in order to sour the Russian triumph as much as possible. I wrote about that at length in the beginning of 2014, as the situation developed.
Back in the beginning of 2014, as Kiev maidan developed, I predicted that the West would use the opportunity of Russia being tied with the Sochi Games to execute a coup in Kiev – and that’s exactly how it happened. I also predicted that Russia would wait till the end of the Olympics and then engage in Ukraine conflict. That’s exactly how it happened as well. The moment Sochi Games were over, Russia engaged and the result was Crimea seceding and referendums in Donetsk and Lugansk. I said back then that Russia would not send troops to Ukraine, but would remold the situation slowly and quietly to her favor – and that’s what we are observing today.
A somewhat similar stunt was performed against China to sour the 2008 Beijing Olympics. During the Opening Ceremony, Georgia and Saakashvili attacked S. Ossetia, forcing Russia to respond. Not only a war started on the day of the opening of the Olympics had been a slap in the face of the Chinese Games organizers, but it was also hoped that Russia wouldn’t be able to respond, being afraid to offend China. As we know, Russia responded very successfully. The goal of the 08/08/08 attack was not only to attempt to weaken Russia by taking over S. Ossetia, it was also to try to put a rift between Russia and China. As we know, none of that worked. I wrote about the striking parallels between Beijing Olympics – Georgia 2008 war and Sochi Olympics – Ukraine coup 2014 in one of my early articles. You can find more under PREDICTIONS.
Brazil Olympics conundrum and President Dilma Rouseff
The 2016 Olympics are taking place in Brazil, another country member of the BRICS. I will digress here to remind my readers my prediction from 2014, reiterated in 2015: Brazil and its president Dilma Rouseff will be extremely quiet in all things international until after the Brazil Games are over.
If you recall, after the NSA scandal was exposed and it became known that Rouseff and the entire top of Brazil were listened on, Dilma was extremely vocal and indignant. At first, she attempted to lead an international revolt against NSA and USA dominated internet and wireless communications. However, this project died down and it had been quiet ever since. Dilma was re-elected with great difficulty and she had to endure a lot of riots and protests. Then she calmed down and met with Obama, announcing in their joint press conference that differences notwithstanding, she was a big friend of America and President Obama.
Dilma saw the writing on the wall: either she gives in and stops her revolt, or she won’ be president for long. She saw that US and its vassals managed to spoil the Olympics for such giants as China and Russia; it would be so much easier to torpedo the Brazil Olympics. Therefore, Dilma Rouseff will be quiet and agreeable until after the Brazil Olympics are over in 2016. After that, Brazil will gradually re-acquire its more active political stance. But I wouldn’t expect too much from Brazil for some time. Looks like they managed to spook Dilma quite well.
WADA and the Russian team ban
WADA says that the entire Russian Olympic team should be disqualified and Russia should be banned from 2016 Olympics. This statement is extraordinary and unprecedented. First of all, this kind of announcement is never made at a press conference, BEFORE talking to the country in question. Secondly, it appears both the so-called ‘independent’ commission and the anti-doping agency have far exceeded their authority, delivering their own opinion instead of facts, attempting to influence world opinion, and pressuring/ intimidating a country they are supposed to be working with. Nothing like that ever happened in history.
There are only two explanations here: either the members of this ‘independent’ commission and WADA were bribed really, really well, or they were intimidated really, really well. My bet is that it’s both at once. As I said in the previous piece, these people all have tons of skeletons in their closets. It’s just the matter of time of when and how such skeletons would be pulled out and de-dusted to manipulate them.
I’m sure we will hear a lot about this new pinnacle in the ugly, unsporting war against Russia. I will just say that I never thought they could stoop this low in their attempts to hurt Russia. That said, I have to again reiterate, that unfortunately more of the same should be expected.
The Truth About Doping in Sports and Demands to Ban Russia from 2016 Summer Olympics
Let’s begin with a few remarks and observations:
The Moscow anti-doping lab closed down upon demands of the WADA independent commission. This lab is new and state-of-the art. It has lately organized some of the world’s biggest sporting events.
Note that the name of the commission that leveled the accusation is the ‘WADA independent commission’ – in other words, this commission is certainly NOT independent by any means – it is in direct WADA chain of command.
Another thing that is striking is this: in 2014, German TV channel ARD released a documentary in which it blamed Russian sport for heavy doping. I have seen a small snippet from said documentary. It appears that there were lots of loud accusations and emotional statements, but no proof provided. It also appears that the movie makers used statements by the Russian athletes who were ousted because they doped, and who therefore held a grudge. That alone is suspect to say the least. WADA began its ‘independent investigation’ right after the appearance of the documentary and based on its accusations. The whole thing just looks too conveniently coordinated.
2014 was the year of a multi-prong, coordinated attack on Russia: attempt to create a large and strong anti-Russia out of Ukraine, unseat Putin, anti-Russian sanctions, Ruble collapse engineered, oil price collapsed, attempts to isolate Russia internationally, and MH17 (to be blamed on Russia).
In conjunction with all the above, this German documentary, UK press articles and the subsequent investigation begun at the same time, don’t look like a casual co-incidence.
The truth has been coming out about what German TV and journalism really are: an extension of Anglo-American MSM and CIA/NSA combined. The German whistleblowers, who exposed how the ready-made material is simply given to German journalists by the US, are in hiding after having received life threats.
A similar whistleblower and the last remaining honest Ukrainian journalist Oles’ Buzina was killed several months ago in Kiev after he resigned his editor-in-chief post. Shortly before his death, he came out by saying that his conscience didn’t allow him to publish lies that were forced on him by the US embassy in Kiev.
As another example, a Polish politician and member of the Sejm (lower house of the parliament), whom I won’t name for security reasons, recently complained to me that Polish political landscape ‘has been paved in concrete by the US and not a blade of grass, (i.e., dissenting opinion) can get through.’
This is the reality of Europe, and therefore, the reality of all these world sporting agencies and federations, most (or all?) of which are located in Western Europe.
Doping problem in sports
Doping is a huge problem in sports. The US has gone through absolutely massive scandals with Michael Phelps, Serena Williams and her sister, several American all-star track and field athletes. All the above were hushed up. The biggest scandal was probably the former cycling legend Lance Armstrong. The remarkable thing about all these scandals was that most of these occurred AFTER these athletes finished their careers and retired, such as the Phelps and Armstrong cases.
Phelps, if I remember correctly, simply blabbed out publicly that he was doping and so was the rest of his team – but only after he retired. However, the huge and usually winning in all competitions US swimming team was never investigated or suspended, and no one ever suggested banning the entire American team from the Olympics, although the scope of the conspiracy fully warranted that! Being myself a competitive swimmer in the past I kind of always wondered about that… But here it was – Michael Phelps, the ‘king’ of the sport himself blabbed out he and his team mates were doping, yet no investigation ever took place.
Lance Armstrong and the American conspiracy
With cyclist Armstrong, the long-standing accusation of doping was corroborated by witnesses and leveled by parties for at least ten years, including Armstrong’s disgruntled and dishonored teammate Floyd Landis, the team masseuse, and others riders, who were prosecuted and whose careers were ruined for blowing the whistle. Floyd Landis won Tour de France after Armstrong left, but his win was disqualified after it transpired he had doped. Being pissed at Armstrong and at his team for snubbing him during his doping scandal, he went everywhere telling everyone who would listen on Armstrong and the team’s directeur sportif Belgian Johan Bruyneel. Landis alleged a widespread conspiracy involving the entire team, in which they all were required to dope heavily in order to win races.
But only after Armstrong retired did the investigation by USADA (US arm of WADA) finally take place. Proof of a mass doping conspiracy was rock-solid. All of Armstrong’s team mates were implicated, and they all confessed to the conspiracy. Yet, except for Armstrong, NONE of the US cyclists were banned or stripped of titles. Some received 6-month off-season suspension, others were warned to retire just before the scandal blew up, preserving their award money, titles and reputations. These other riders were given a sweet deal in return for testifying against Armstrong, and they did their best to pin everything on him.
The Armstrong scandal dirty underbelly
Lance Armstrong is a Texan and personal friend of George W. Bush. Therefore, while Bush was in power Armstrong was winning all sort of world competitions, including 7 Tour de France champion titles. There were accusations of widespread doping for at least 10 years. However, Bush’s personal protection worked its magic: they were all squashed violently both in the US and internationally, allowing American cyclists to dominate the world. Armstrong’s squad was called ‘the blue train of pain’ and Lance Armstrong personally was referred to as ‘the boss.’
I’m not kidding – violently is the word. After years of squashing any whistleblowers and awarding those who played along, Armstrong left a long trail of enemies. When Bush was gone, there was no one left to shield him from justice. It appears that Obama and democrats allowed the investigation to finally take place as a revenge against Bush and republicans. If Armstrong wasn’t as arrogant and cruel towards so many people, perhaps he would’ve gotten off easier. But all those whom he had wronged just piled up, adding accusation on top of accusation. And that’s how ugly the big sport can be, especially when a lot of money and overinflated egos come into play.
I am far from defending Armstrong, whom a pinned as bad news since the first time I laid my eyes on him – and that was years before he got caught. But the real reason he was exposed and others in the US weren’t, was purely political: democrats and Obama wanting to get one up on republicans and Bush.
Incidentally, when Armstrong was stripped of all his Tour de France titles, the French didn’t award those to anyone else as it was quietly recognized that the #2 and #3 winners were also doping.
Serena Williams steroid use and London Olympics
The story of the Williams sisters is even more bizarre. Persistent rumors are circulating of the long-term heavy usage of steroids. The stroke of Serena Williams is too strong for a woman, as specialists have suggested. This was clearly visible in the final match between Williams and Russian Maria Sharapova during the London Olympics.
Sharapova, who was in her best form, was a heavy favorite for the win. The spectators were perplexed why she was so uncharacteristically unable to deflect Serena’s shots that came as fast a bullets. The distrust of that ‘victory’ has been extremely strong, all this supported by the persistent rumors and accusations that Williams sisters have been inventing reasons to skip doping tests, and therefore, have not been tested for years. When testers arrived, they’d been known to skip town, lock themsleves in the bathroom or throw a tantrum, preventing samples from being taken.
Calls to strip Williams of the win and other medals abounded. However, nothing was ever done and the scandal was yet again hushed up.
The Olympics and pressure to dope
The doping problem is extremely pervasive in big sport. The 2008 Chinese Olympics left some questions about Chinese doping due to sudden drastic spike in performance. The 2012 London games certainly left a lot of questions. The unusually good performance of the UK team rose questions in my mind for sure.
The reason for that is the home town advantage, some may suggest. That’s true. There is a Russian saying, “Even the walls help when you compete at home.” But let’s be brutally honest: home base creates unusually good chances of letting the country’s own athletes off the doping tests easily, while testing others especially harshly. Incidentally, doping tests aren’t an exact science and much lies in their interpretation. There are known instances of athletes being banned from Olympics after they had a flu and took aspirin or anti-cough mixture days prior. This of course is absurd, but scandals involving banning on the grounds of taking innocuous flu medicine abound.
Of course, the team performance is helped by sabotaging other teams and introducing in your own Olympics those sports you are best at. In London 2012, we suddenly saw scores of equestrian events, which were never a part of the Olympics. Crowding the schedule with so many new events that never had been a part of the regular competition is direct manipulation. And who won them all (or most)? That’s right, UK.
Meanwhile, the events Russia is good at, such as rhythmic gymnastics (which in reality should be called ‘artistic gymnastics’ in English, to be consistent with the original name – yet another deliberate manipulation!), were cut to the bone, so Russia would get as few medals as possible. Many questions in the London Olympics were created by the unfair judging of wrestling and boxing events. In such events, consistently athletes from Russia were judged in such a way as to give gold to the opponent, including in many cases when Russians were favorites, thus creating the situation when Russia had surprisingly few gold medals and a lot of silver. This combination of factors worked very well and UK managed to climb in the team standing to the third place, bypassing Russia for the first time ever!
But certainly, no other Olympics were as openly corrupt and crooked as the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Yet, despite many allegations of corruption and misconduct, no one ever went to jail in the US and no one was ever banned. The whole scandal was hushed up so effectively that no one even mentions it. I was so disgusted watching the whole spectacle that after that I swore I would boycott the Olympics and any sport. And I did, until Beijing.
Bottom line, certain countries would do everything in their power to win sports competitions, yet they never get punished or investigated. Stakes are so high and the money is so good that some individual athletes dope in secret in order to win. Yet, very few get caught. It always happens for political reasons – not for the reasons it should happen, such as establishing the equal playing field and justice.
My friend, who has been in sports all his life, told me that if they really wanted to establish an equal playing field, if they really wanted to stop doping, they’d be testing athletes’ hair, not their urine. That’s where the long-term doping residue is really preserved.
Why don’t they do that, if it’s that simple? Because if they did, Serena Williams wouldn’t be playing. Neither would most of the US athletes.
Another thing my friend tells me is this: athletes have to dope to keep up with others. Cyclists, for example, simply cannot endure the three weeks of the Tour de France unless they dope ahead of time. Now that everyone has to dope much less than before, Le Tour has become much more boring and predictable to watch. Some all-star athletes had to drop out because without sufficient doping they cannot cope. Organizers are the hypocrites of our televised era: on one hand they create a hype about the spectacular challenges such as the spectacular climbs and bloodcurdling crashes; on the other, they want the riders to be monks. That’s why the beautiful sport such as cycling is now in a crisis.
Anti-Russian conspiracies in sports
There have been a lot of baseless accusations lately that the USSR won its many medals because of doping. I was a competitive swimmer when I was a teen back in the 1980s Moscow, and I’d been known to win some medals in my day. Not a single time did I hear anyone – neither athletes nor coaches – talk about anything to do with doping. What athletes did do in order to increase performance was use weights and resistance: such as you strap a belt with a wide plastic resistance plate to your waist and swim with this added resistance. Or weight bracelets are worn on arms and legs for added resistance. Many other training and natural diet methods existed. Between us, I hated all of that, not the least, having to be confined to the pool full of chlorinated water. Some thrive on it, but I am too much of a free spirit. I quit sport as soon as I could and never looked back.
Added: Just remembered this interesting episode! I also knew personally Oxana Bayul and Viktor Petrenko, both figure skating Olympic Champions. I knew them when I grew up in Odessa, where they lived (our skating rink was located three blocks from my house). I also knew their famous coach Galina Zmievskaya in New Jersey, as well as Galina Zmievskaya’s daughter in Simsbury, CT, where she worked as hairstylist and where she, incidentally, cut my hair. Many world-class Russian figure skaters trained in Simsbury, CT, when I also lived there.
Later, most of them, including Zmievskaya, Bayul and Petrenko, moved to other states. I met some of them again in New Jersey. Not once on any occasion did I hear anything about doping or anything related to any cheating from any of them, neither did I observe any such behavior. And perhaps by now my readers know how hard it is to hide the truth from me. I knew other Russian athletes as well, but I think the above is enough to illustrate the point.
So, I was right on the inside, and didn’t see or hear anything related to doping, yet those in the West who were never there and had no way of knowing what really went on, have all the knowledge in the world about the Soviet sport’s underbelly.
Certainly, I haven’t peeked into every boardroom and sports club in the USSR. It’s possible that there was doping here and there. But at the very minimum, this is the pot calling the kettle black.
Most likely, this is simply politically and jealousy motivated. Some hold a grudge against Russia/USSR since those old days and they feel now is a good time to unload it as it’s fashionable (and profitable) to attack Russia on all fronts.
At the same time, the real doping problem in the USA and West is conveniently hushed up.
Another example: a couple of years ago there was a scandal when Russian pro-cycling team Katyusha was banned from riding just before the start of the season on some silly technicality – they didn’t file this or that. At the time, Katyusha was the #2 rated team in the sport, with the #1 rated leading rider Joakim Rodriguez, who would also be banned. Team with such standing had to be allowed to compete automatically, with no paperwork of any kind filed.
Meanwhile, the team that rated #14 with non-rated lead rider Alberto Contador coming out of doping suspension, was allowed to join the season automatically, which should have happened in Russian team’s case. Russian team had to do some very fancy footwork, costing athletes nerves and concentration and missing some competitions, in order to be allowed to compete. The rumor in sporting circles was that Russians didn’t bribe World Cycling Federation, and that’s why they were snubbed. Meanwhile the Contador team (I believe it was Saxobank), German in origin, put out the kind of bribe they could not refuse. Therefore, we are likely looking at enormous corruption and ugly collusion in the sport.
Can WADA be trusted?
In this regard, I really would like to know how much WADA can be trusted? Who and how much has paid them for this stunt?
Another thing that should be taken into account are the ambitions and honesty of the doping testers, as well as inspectors and prosecutors themselves. From my years of observation, it appears to me that their own ego and pride frequently get in the way of honest and clean results.
The Big Sport’s vicious cycle
Yes, I would love for the sport to become a clean, true, honest test of everyone’s abilities. That would be possible if the sport was a strictly amateur past time; if achieving a new height, best result and glory for yourself and your country wasn’t the over-riding goal.
This is how we do sports in our family. We go for hikes for enjoyment, not to outdo everyone; cycling is done for the joy of riding and fresh air; ping pong is played for the sense of camaraderie and good conversation; and chess for the same reason.
But that’s us. Countries invest in sport because it’s one of the methods to support national pride and solidify national self-esteem, while private clubs and organizations do so to advance sport to the new heights, but even more so – for profit and personal enrichment. In the world we live in – where instead of cooperation everyone tries to outdo everyone else, the opportunities for enrichment, profit, greed and corruption abound. Until this is the case, doping will exist.
In our day and age of mass sport and mass TV, in order for sport to be big and desirable by many, in order for sport to be attractive as a TV spectacle, as an inspiration and as a cash cow, it has to be hyped up. If it’s hyped up, there will always be people who will want to get ahead to get their own fifteen minutes of glory. There will always be unscrupulous coaches and directors, who’ll want to give that extra boost to their team.
But what about real talent, you ask? The real talent will have no choice but to keep up with the rest, or abandon sport. The real talent will have to start doping in order not to be trampled on by those less talented and less honest who don’t care how they achieve the result.
This creates a vicious cycle. That said, not all sports are created equal: certain sports are much better at controlling doping abuse than others. And there are many good and honest athletes who don’t dope.
But then, isn’t it a great idea to crack down on doping violations? Isn’t it what WADA and other such agencies are supposed to do?
It would be wonderful if they did so equitably and fairly! I’d be the first one applauding. But this is not the case, is it? As I’ve shown above, what we are seeing are highly politicized actions that have nothing to do with real sport and real fairness.
Russia needs to be punished because Russia dares to speak the truth and conduct independent policy; because Russia and Putin are becoming more and more popular, while the US power is waning; because Russia has dealt too many blows to US and NWO dominion. This is the reason for such unprecedented actions.
To conclude, let’s recall, just like in the case with FIFA bribing scandal, they accuse first, and try to prove it never. Once this scandal doesn’t work out, they’ll find another scandal to generate.
This is clearly a further attempt of punishment for Russia. Note that Putin just annoucned at G20 in Turkey that ISIL was financed by 40 countries, including G20 members (see: ISIL financed from 40 countries, including G20 members – Putin). Today, Russia began bombing ISIl oil fields and infrastructure – the source of much of the terrorist and militant funding – something US/France/UK/Australia conveniently failed to do for over a year. Read all about it in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER. Also see this corroborating video.
Directly after that the ban of the entire Russian athletic team from international competitions was announced – yet another confirmation that this is staged and directly tied to Russia’s actions in Syria. The bigger goal is, of course, to keep Russia down, suffocating, unable to function and develop.
If they succeed in banning Russian athletes from 2016 Olympics, it’ll set up an extremely dangerous precedent. Can they actually ban the entire Russian team? Probably not. But they can reduce the Russian team very substantially, and they can also dampen the spirits so much as to take away any chances for success. Russian sport is now on the rise, after many years of falling after the collapse of the USSR. This is a clear attempt to drag Russia down under water again. Who and why needs that? We had talked about it many times before. The same forces that want to make the entire world into their slaves and obedient robots. This is yet another swipe by what we call NWO to keep us all subdued.
Why Russia? Because Russia is the Great Balancer, and because Russia is that last bastion they are unable to conquer. Russia stands in the way of NWO world domination and Russia has been successfully turning around the situation, gradually rebalancing the energy and power to the East. These dark forces can’t afford that. They will attack Russia in every way possible to slow down the process.
They are hoping that the insult of the investigation and banning of the Russian team will dampen Russian spirits and cause Russia to make some bad moves. They are also hoping Putin will somehow lose his cool. They know how important sports are for Putin, they know that Russia has been investing huge amounts to develop mass sports in the country, which lagged behind since the ’90s collapse.
The goal is to broadside, confuse, get Russia mired in problems and investigations. The goal is to sabotage and slow down Russia. The declared mega-goals are also to isolate Russia and to unseat Putin.
This is why Putin and Russia are behaving in the only correct way possible. Putin has announced that Russia will openly and fully cooperate with all international investigations as Russia’s goal is the same as everyone’s – to stop abuses in sport. Those who are guilty will be banned, but it’s not fair to ban the entire team. I think this is a perfect response under the circumstances.
And last but no least: since most, if not all, of world sporting organizations are located in Western Europe, since doping protocols and procedures are all developed between US and Western Europe, since most sporting rules have also been set up in Europe, UK or US, I would strongly suggest Europe to stop being hypocrites and start looking in the mirror.
For the full picture in this new low in the hybrid war against Russia, and on how Olympics have become an ugly proxy in the global geopolitical struggle to preserve the dying US Empire, read my complete article compilation on Olympics, doping in sport, and Brazil!
