WILL POROSHENKO BEGIN A NEW WAR IN DONBASS? HOW WILL PUTIN, TRUMP REACT? LadaRayWebinar1 Q4

Novorossia/Donbass and Ukraine, have been put on a back burner in the past month or two. Meanwhile, Ukraine and Donbass are about to again become headline news. Last year I wrote about the heating up events in Donbass and about my prediction that Trump is preparing to dump Poroshenko and Ukraine. As many of you know, my articles/ videos, Earth Shift Reports, Webinars and Predictions often preempt the real events by months, or even years. Those who are smart will follow me and listen carefully to what I say today, in order to be prepared for tomorrow.

Additional latest developments: 1. Huge news from DPR/LPR: Putin issued new law officially recognizing Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics passports! News 2: Ukraine is down to just a few weeks of coal reserves and the country is going into the power shutdown. Secret intel 3: Poroshenko is looking for asylum.

Why Trump Was Forced to Sacrifice His National Security Adviser Michael Flynn

Below are my thoughts on why Trump was forced to sacrifice Michael Flynn. I am posting them here along with an excerpt from The New York Times. The NYT bit is posted as a mere record of what is floating out there, so don’t hold me to it. Whether the sequence and content of the events described by NYT is true (most likely, these are half-truths) or not… one thing is for certain. What you will read below is yet another spectacular confirmation that Trump is being put in that proverbial straight jacket I’d predicted in October 2016. It also confirms my other prediction: that he will be forced to make deals, dilute his original agenda and toe the line – all this per my 10/2016 EARTH REPORT 16!

Notice that a conversation between newly appointed by the US president Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador was wiretapped by FBI!

I also want to point out that The New York Times, this ‘most democratic’ of MSM outlets in the world’s ‘most democratic’ country, styles the apparent attempt of Trump and Michael Flynn to reach out to Russia for a compromise and reconciliation as a big crime and cause for shame. Trump, Flynn and Trump’s staff are being forced to justify their every step. As I predicted back in October 2016 in EARTH REPORT 16 and reconfirmed in the recent WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? WEBINAR, Trump’s life is, and will continue being made difficult. His assassination or impeachment risk is high (see TRUMP WEBINAR for his exact timeline). For survival’s sake, this forces him to dilute his initial agenda and give up many of his initial goals, especially when it concerns Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia.

At this time, to avoid a continued full-scale attack and early impeachment (make no mistake, this is what they want!) Trump is forced to sacrifice his key adviser Michael Flynn. Unfortunately, that’s how they’ll continue weakening him: make him sacrifice anyone who is of any significance, while the rest of his surrounding will be forced to toe the line to survive. On top of that, much of his government is not on the same page as him, having been formed as a very unstable compromise.

The shakeups and shakedowns in the USA will continue for a while, resulting in huge changes and facilitating cataclysms. This we will discuss later this year in the future webinar on the USA Collapse timeline.

‘The Timeline of Michael Flynn’s Phone Call With Russia: Who Knew What, and When’

‘What happened behind the scenes and what was known publicly’ (excerpt from NYT)

Nov. 18, 2016 President-elect Donald J. Trump appoints Michael T. Flynn as national security adviser.
Dec. 25 Mr. Flynn sends a text extending holiday greetings to Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States. Mr. Kislyak replies.
Dec. 29 President Barack Obama announces sanctions against Russia for trying to influence the November election through cyberattacks. Around the same time Mr. Flynn discusses sanctions with Mr. Kislyak in a phone call, according to officials who have seen a transcript of the wiretapped conversation.

Dec. 30  President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia says he will not retaliate against the sanctions.

Dec. 30 Mr. Trump praises Mr. Putin’s response on Twitter: “I always knew he was very smart!”

Jan. 12 News organizations first report on the call between Mr. Flynn and Mr. Kislyak.

Jan. 13 In a conference call with reporters, Mr. Spicer confirms the phone conversation

between Mr. Flynn and Mr. Kislyak, saying it had “centered around the logistics” and
had “never touched on the sanctions.”

Jan. 14 Mr. Flynn informs Vice President Mike Pence that he did not discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia with Mr. Kislyak in the phone call.

Jan. 15 In several televised interviews, Mr. Pence states that Mr. Flynn and Mr. Kislyak did not discuss sanctions.

Jan. 15 In an interview on NBC, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, also states that Mr. Flynn and Mr. Kislyak did not discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia.

Jan. 22 Mr. Flynn denies talking about the sanctions with Mr. Kislyak to Mr. Spicer.

Jan. 23 Asked about Mr. Flynn’s phone call at a press briefing, Mr. Spicer again states that U.S. sanctions against Russia were not discussed.

Between Jan. 23 and Jan. 26 F.B.I. agents interview Mr. Flynn regarding his conversation with Mr. Kislyak.

Jan. 26 The Justice Department notifies the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn

II, that Mr. Flynn had not been truthful about his interactions with Mr. Kislyak and that he could be at risk for being blackmailed by Russian intelligence. Mr. McGahn then briefs Mr. Trump. In the following days Mr. McGahn reviews the events surrounding the phone call and conducts several interviews with Mr. Flynn. Mr. McGahn later determines that there

are no legal issues related to the call.

Jan. 28  Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin conduct an hourlong telephone call, attended by Mr. Flynn.

Feb. 8 Mr. Flynn denies discussing sanctions with Mr. Kislyak in an interview with The Washington Post.

Feb. 9 The Washington Post and The New York Times report that Mr. Flynn discussed American sanctions against Russia with Mr. Kislyak, contradicting previous statements about the phone call.

Feb. 9 Mr. Flynn tells The Washington Post that “while he had no recollection of

discussing sanctions, he couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.”

Feb. 10 Aboard Air Force One, Mr. Trump says he hasn’t seen new reports about Mr.

Flynn’s conversations with Mr. Kislyak.

Feb. 13, during the day Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, says that Mr. Flynn misled Mr. Pence about the phone call, but that Mr. Flynn still “enjoys the full confidence of the president.” Mr. Spicer says the president is “evaluating the situation.”

Feb. 13, evening Mr. Flynn resigns as national security adviser.

IS STEVE BANNON A TROJAN HORSE FOR THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE? LadaRayWebinar1 Q1

trump-bannon-2

Hello, Lada Ray and moderator Az here! Together with nearly 100 participants, we had a fantastic first Live Lada Ray Webinar, WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?

The webinar discussion included:

1. Why Trump made so many decisive moves so early in the term – the risk of his assassination or impeachment.
2. How Trump is put in a political ‘straightjacket.’
3. Trump’s importance for the Earth Shift and upcoming European shift.
4. Will Merkel be re-elected in Germany? And French election prediction.
5. Can Putin and Trump work together in Ukraine and Middle East?
7. Russia-China-USA triangle and secret Kissinger plan.
8. Lada Ray predictions: Will anti-Russian sanctions be taken off? What can Trump offer Russia? What is Putin’s strategy?

Part 2: Lada’s prediction on whether Trump will survive his first term; real reason Melania Trump won’t move into the White House; and Quantum Calibrations.

Later, we had an extensive Q&A during which Lada answered a number of questions, including Melania and Donald Trump, is Melania a new Jackie Kennedy, Earth Shift and the environment, lightworkers and cosmic souls, free energy, Russia, Japan, Israel-US relations, Fukushima, will Trump authorize 9/11 and alien disclosure, was there a secret alien and German Nazi base in Antarctica, as well as Reinventing Collapse by Dmitry Orlov.

Full Webinar description can be found in WEBINARS @ LadaRay.com.

Steve Bannon and Donald Trump

Although Q&A lasted 1.5 hours, we were unable to cover all participant questions. We are offering you a new series of FREE Ask Lada videos in which we’ll answer the most interesting and popular webinar questions.

Without further ado, listen to the answer to:

QUESTION 1: IS STEVE BANNON A TROJAN HORSE FOR THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE?

The original video posted on YouTube! 

PLEASE LIKE, COMMENT, SHARE!

ADDED: 

Dear Lada, please have a look at this very important article: Steve Bannon’s 2009 Film ‘Zero Generation’ Reveals Why He Wants To Start World War III. ‘Bannon doesn’t just believe that we are in an existential conflict with Islam or with China. It seems he wants to exacerbate those conflicts into a new world war. As a believer in Strauss and Howe’s theory of history, Bannon fantasizes that he can use that cataclysm to forge a completely new order. He is now in a position to make that a reality.’

Lada Ray

We’ll see how far they decide to go down the rabbit hole.

But if you ever listened to my predictions, you should know that Russia won’t let WWIII happen. At any rate, unless you follow my EARTH SHIFT REPORTS, WEBINARS and future BOOKS, you may not have a full understanding of what I am saying.

Bannon is just a small piece of the puzzle and he’s not that important. Earth Shift is important, Putin and The Great Balancer are important, too. Trump, Bannon, etc., are just reflections of change. It appears I can say it a million times and people still don’t get it. But don’t worry, eventually you will.

The rest – in my past and future works. This is as far as I will go with this today. Thanks.

What, you didn’t like the truth about Trump?

So… as of this moment, I see just one solitary LIKE under my post published three hours ago: Will Trump really manage to improve relations with Russia? I actually wrote that post on January 11, 2017, in response to a reader question. However, it sat in draft ever since, and it felt like a good idea to publish it today, as a follow up to Lada Ray Webinar 1 on Trump.

The post above reiterated my predictions from 10/2016, voiced in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER. These predictions and analysis were again expanded on and taken much further in the most recent LRW1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM. I actually outlined step-by-step how Trump and his people would be put in a ‘straight jacket.’

Just barely a couple of hours after I published Will Trump really manage to improve relations with Russia? , I went into my YouTube timeline, and imagine my surprise – not – when I saw a very clear confirmation that what I’ve said is already coming to pass. Just check out these two videos:

‘Trump expects Moscow to ‘return’ Crimea to Ukraine, has been tough on Russia’ – WH spokesman

Michael Flynn resigns as National Security Advisor over phone talks with Russian ambassador:

Also, please recall Rex Tillerson and his anti-Russian US Senate hearing.

So, please forgive my sarcasm under the circumstances… But my question to you, my dear readers, is this:

Are you really interested in TRUTH and my HONEST AND SPOT ON PREDICTIONS, SO YOUR FUTURE IS CLEAR AND BRIGHT?

Or do you prefer to continue cooking in the same matrix of lies and deception, as long as someone keeps feeding you fairytales?

If you answered YES to the first question – then you and I will get along.

However, if the answer to the second question is YES and to the first NO – feel free to move on.

I AM LOOKING FOR REAL READERS AND SUPPORTERS!

AT THIS POINT I FEEL LIKE TOO MANY WHO READ MY BLOG AND LISTEN TO MY PREDICTIONS TAKE ME FOR GRANTED!

I AM NOT LOOKING FOR FREE-LOADERS, THRILL SEEKERS AND LITTLE CHILDREN EXPECTING FAIRYTALES, who immediately withdraw support the moment something they hear is not to their liking!

By the way, I would like my readers and followers to support my work by liking, posting nice comments and sharing via social media. Otherwise, please tell me why on earth should I continue doing all this?

As always, thank you to all those of you who have been real deal followers, financial and blog supporters and loyal readers/listeners. I always appreciate you!

Comment from ASK LADA: Real Reasons US tanks roll into Germany to bolster NATO against Russia

paleohippy I’m not pleased with the Russia-bashing questions the confirmation hearing is throwing at Rex Tillerson. I’m also not happy with his answers. The Secretary of State nominee seems to think Russia invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea. The man can’t be that stupid. I’m hoping he’s just going along to get along and that he told Putin not to believe a word of what he would have to say to get confirmed.

 

It’s all developing according to Lada Ray ESR 16 predictions of October-early November 2016!

LADA RAY:

A agree, this isn’t very nice. Moreover, I am hearing that Trump is also backtracking on some of his earlier statements. One of Trump’s most recent statements was to the effect that: ‘don’t for a moment think that Hillary could be tougher than I with Russia.’

That said, I am not surprised. I did predict this outcome in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: 
US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER. This prediction was reiterated and developed later in FuturisTrendcast articles.

I specifically said that Trump will have to make deals with various forces that will put pressure on him from various directions. One of the biggest pressures that is being applied to him, comes from various Russophobes on both republican and democrat sides. I said that he would have to deal with problems and sabotage from his own party as well as from neo-liberals, and everyone in-between. This will put Trump – and his people – in a straight jacket of sorts, and it will largely dilute his agenda.

The result, as I said, would be not much of a change – or at least not as much as many people hope.

Trump may be able to do a thing here and a thing there, both domestically and internationally, but don’t expect that much. It is also confirmed by my quantum calibrations, given in the end of Part 2 of the main ESR16 report.

So, those who thought Trump would suddenly become Russia’s huge friend, don’t hold your breath. Some of it was said to win elections, in order to attract a significant number of Americans who respect Putin and Russia. Another part of it is the fact that he will be manipulated and will have to dilute his vision, to accommodate those forces that are Russophobic in the US. Unfortunately, among politicians, oligarchs, media, academia – in short, anyone who has a lot of influence on public opinion, the vast majority is rabidly Russophobic.

Incidentally, Putin and Russians understand this and there are no illusions on their part – a stark contrast to how Yeltsin and Gorbachev gave away the farm. It will be very hard — read impossible — to dupe Russia going forward. Those who, on the US/West side want to try that old stunt again, should heed my advice: Don’t!

That said, the GREAT EARTH SHIFT has come to America and Europe.

There is a very profound craving for change in the American society. However, there are too many forces that don’t want this change to happen. Even if Trump wanted to change relations with Russia, they won’t let him do anything meaningful. The issue of improving US-Russia relations for Trump goes hand in hand with the toughening of US-China relations and US-Iran relations, as well as the secret cold-war-style bargain Trump wants to strike with Russia. All about that in LRW1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM.

The stakes will be very high in the next several years and the super powers (US, Russia, China as well as EU, Iran and the Middle East now added to the mix) will be engaged in a very serious game of global chess.

Very important changes are afoot and they will continue for the rest of this decade and into the next. Nothing is simple and nothing is straightforward in what’s to come.

The shift will be happening in every society on Earth both internally and internationally!

WHAT IS THIS WEBINAR ABOUT?

As many of you who’ve listened to EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER, plus Addendum and YT follow-up, know, many of my predictions, expressed in October-November 2016, have come true. Trump, before even taking office, has been mired in various restrictions and scandals; he found that he has to compromise, and so do his prospective nominees. Much of what Trump has said about Russia and Putin during his campaign and after doesn’t match. My prediction that Trump and his people will be put in a straight jacket and compromised, that they won’t be able to fulfill many of their promises, is coming true. Also true is coming my prediction that despite all this, Trump will still be a factor of change in the US and worldwide; that many around the world will take the opportunity to shift away from the US domination while internal struggle of the elites is underway.

This upcoming webinar is designed to build on the EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER. However, in the webinar, I plan to go much further.

I promise not to hold back. I’ll tell you everything I know and foresee regarding Trump and the future of the US, West, as well as the rest of the world as it relates to Trump’s presidency. I also plan to tell you about how Russians and Russian government REALLY feel about Trump and what they expect going forward from his government. Incidentally, I’ll reveal what I really think about Russian hacking scandal.

I’ll also tell you about the renewed game of chess within the US-Russia-China triangle, and the role of Kissinger in it.

I’ll give you my prediction regarding US-UK-EU relationship and what I see happening in the next 1-3 years. I’ll reveal new things about Ukraine and where its relations with the US are going. We’ll also touch upon NATO, Syria and the Middle East, and what will happen to the US dominance.

I’ll tell you what I see happening under Trump in the US domestic and international policies.

Most importantly, we’ll tie all this with the ongoing Earth Shift and define where Trump and the upcoming period of 2017-2019 falls in the grand scheme of things.

To tell you the truth, there are some very sensitive things I haven’t felt quite comfortable revealing in a public format of FT, YT or ESRs. However, I plan to share the knowledge I was unable to share previously, with those of you who are serious. I guarantee I will reveal the entire truth and give you as clear a picture as possible on the above topics.

As a result of this webinar you may be shocked, disappointed; or perhaps, elated, hopeful or relieved. Perhaps what I’ll tell you will confirm what you’ve suspected all along.

Regardless, I can promise you this: what I tell you will open your eyes. It’ll help guide you through turbulent and confusing waters of today and tomorrow. It’ll bring clarity, truth and profound understanding, which, in my opinion, are very rare and valuable commodities these days.

I hope to see you at the webinar. If you can’t attend, you can still purchase it, and download and listen later at your convenience.

MY OUTRAGEOUS & FUN NEW YEAR STORIES

In my life, I happened to greet the New Year in some fun, memorable and outrageous ways, and in many fascinating places.

In the old days, back in Odessa and Moscow, we usually celebrated in a company of good friends. Being fashionably late was a sport of sorts; in our intellectual circles it was considered all in good fun. Just like in the perennially favorite Russian New Year’s film, The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath, I remember frantically trying to get to the party before the first stroke of midnight. We would catch a taxi – with difficulty – and urge the driver to go as fast as he can through the snowed-in city. Then we would storm into our friends’ apartment building clutching the requisite bottle of the Soviet Champagne (yep, it’s a famous brand) – our responsibility to bring to the party – as others nervously awaited our arrival with empty champagne flutes on hand. Then, at 11:59 sharp, as on TV the Spasskaya Tower Clock began chiming midnight, we would shout, ‘Quick, the glasses!’ and pour it just in time! New Year saved by the bell!

Later, there were many other New Years…

Once, in the 1980s, I greeted the New Year at the Tropicana Club in Havana, Cuba. Incidentally, the night club, full of hot and almost naked Cuban dancers, booze and buzz had absolutely no age restrictions. There were people of all ages, including some suspiciously young ones. But they were all divine dancers. I was invited by the club’s leading musician and manager, for whom I once translated in Russia. As a total non-drinker, I had to do some fancy footwork to enjoy the party, while avoiding drinking throughout the night.

The millennial New Year 2000 I happened to greet in Haifa, Israel. The terrorist acts were widely predicted and expected. When I was leaving to Israel before the holidays, my various Smith Barney clients begged me not to go, saying, ‘We don’t want to lose you!’ I assured them all that I would be safe. I was right, as usual. Even then, when I didn’t do it for a living, my predictions were spot on. 😉

How do you think we greeted New Year’s 2000 in Haifa? You won’t believe it, but my nice Jewish-Russian friends decided it would be fun to invite me to the Russian mega-bash at a fashionable Russian night club, called… Hollywood. The all-night entertainment program and I don’t know how-many-course holiday meal were loudly lavish, never-ending and borderline risque. We have to forgive them: they still ran on the Russian mentality of the crazy ’90s.

To be honest, I preferred to either catch up with my friends’ entire family at home or go exploring authentically Jewish and Muslim entertainment. Of course, I also did all the usual: Dead Sea, Arabic settlements, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Wailing Wall and the Holy Sepulchre.

The security on streets and airport was shocking. Let’s recall it was pre 9/11 and very bizarre to a Western eye. At the time it was very hard for an average person to understand how the entire country could constantly live under siege. The military with machine guns were everywhere you went in Jerusalem. Snipers were menacingly stationed on top of the Wailing Wall, full of Jewish worshippers in big black hats  – they did expect an attack that night.

When I was leaving Israel, a young and unsmiling airport security girl in military uniform unapologetically and unemotionally squeezed every tube of the healing Dead Sea scrubs and rare creams a bought from the famous beauty company Ahava. The whole check-up procedure lasted 45 minutes. But that was nothing compared to what they’d done to a little boy’s shoe. The Arabic family in the next aisle was told to remove their little son’s shoe. The shoe was ripped apart and tossed out to the cries of the boy. Turned out it was bomb free.

Later in the decade I understood why they did what they did.

Once in the US, for New Year’s I was stuck in our country home in the Berkshires, with only my darling kitty Lilechka for company (you see her on my pic in the top right corner of this blog). It was at the time that I began writing THE EARTH SHIFTER, while also finishing up STEPFORD, USA. Incidentally, the story of Stepford, as journalist Jade Snow gets stuck in the Berkshires alone, while her husband works in New York and abroad, is partially inspired by my own.

That New Year’s we had a totally crazy amount of snow. In town, the mountains of snow pushed from the road to the sidewalks reached second and even third floors of buildings. The sidewalks looked like narrow tunnels, dug between tall white walls. The snowfall began on the 29th and by the 30th our 1/4 mile-long driveway was covered in snow to my waist. Due to the holiday I simply could not get anyone to plow it. Meanwhile, some roads and bridges from New York were closed and my hubby was unable to drive back home. When they cleared the roads and he finally arrived on the night of Jan. 1, I saw his car’s dim lights on the other side of the massive white sheet. Thank god he brought a shovel. We dug simultaneously from both sides, illuminated only by the bright moon’s light, until we met in the middle. That night I fully understood how the WWII Russians and Western allies felt when they met on Elba in 1945.

At other times I greeted the New Year on Red Square, and on Times Square. My Times Square New Year has its own funny story, which I’ll tell another time. Those times I spent New Year on Red Square, and generally in Moscow, are some of my most treasured.

New Year’s on Red Square:

These are some of my New Year’s stories. And what are yours? Please share them in comments!

Enjoy Novogodnyaya – New Year’s Song from the Russian girl band Blestyaschie (Shining).

Watch BELOVED RUSSIAN NEW YEAR COMEDIES OF ALL TIME!

Genya, the main hero of the aforementioned The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath says: ‘We have a tradition. Every year, on December 31, my friends and I gather at the banya.’ (Banya is a traditional Russian wet sauna or steam room.) That fateful phrase began the incredible adventure, which became the beloved Russian film of all time.

Just like Genya and his friends, we also have a family tradition. For New Year’s we watch the nostalgic Russian movies. Today, I want to share with you the treasures of the golden era of Soviet/Russian cinematography, which we enjoy every year.

Of course, the staple: The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath. You can find it on Amazon, or at certain Russian stores. The original made in the 1970s has the incredible magic and freshness that contemporary films are simply unable to reproduce. After all these years, it hasn’t lost its mega-popularity. There is a contemporary Irony of Fate part 2, which is also not at all bad.

Unfortunately, Irony of Fate is unavailable on YouTube. But the good news, I found several other all-time New Year favorites! And the best thing, they are posted on YouTube for FREE and they come with English subs! All highly recommended by me!

NEW RUSSIAN FILMS JUST ADDED!

Some have already celebrated the New Year. Still 12/31/16 on my side of the pond.  As promised, FREE links to some of my fave Soviet/Russian New Year’s films. These are all 5 stars or above in my classification, in other words, world classics and eternal favorites (for more on my rating scale see Russian films page on FT – under RUSSIA tab above!)

NOTE! Most of these come with English subs. Because Mosfilm owns copyright, I cannot post them on FT. Please click on links below to watch on YouTube! These are unlisted, the links can only be obtained through watching a Russian version. This means Mosfilm frowns upon sharing. So, please be considerate – I am sharing only with my blog’s loyal readers, those who genuinely love Russia and are interested in her culture.

Carnival Night – Eng subs (Rus: Карнавальная ночь)

 5+ STARS. I love this 1956 musical romantic comedy. The songs from it – true for many Soviet films! – became instant hits and classics. Not a New Year goes by without ‘5 Minutes’ and ‘The Good Mood’ being played and replayed over and over on radio and TV.

Blurb: The bureaucratic and nosy new director of the Cultural Club Ogurtsov annoyingly interferes with the preparations of the event of the year, the New Year Carnival, by demanding bizarre and non-sensical changes to the program. The party organizers are in despair, but their determination to make the concert and carnival a success help them outwit Ogurtsov.

Song ‘5 MINUTES’

Gentlemen of Fortune (Rus: Джентльмены удачи)

5+ STARS – WOULD GLADLY GIVE IT 10+! 1971. Sorry, no Eng subs. One of my fave movies of all time, a comedy with cute songs, great acting and immortal lines that became instant sayings. It is one of my New Year’s films as the action takes place mainly around New Year’s, part in Moscow and part in hot Central Asia.

This is the story of a kindly principal of a Moscow kindergarten, who also happens to be a WWII hero, and who is a spitting image of a dangerous criminal. Taking advantage of this incredible likeness, Soviet police decides to infiltrate him into the gang to find the missing archeological treasures. As the gang retraces their steps to try to find the treasures hidden by their ring leader, while experiencing various adventures along the way, our kindly kindergarten teacher subtly, and unbeknownst to him, manages to change the psyche of the gang members, who slowly develop consciousness.

Джентльмены удачи Awesome Theme Song (Gentlemen of Fortune)

The Prisoner of Caucasus, or the New Shurik’s Adventures  – Eng subs (Rus: Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика) Note, Mosfilm translates it as ‘The Caucasian Prisoner.’

5+ STARS. Awesome, cool, full of action Soviet comedy, peppered with satire and great lines that became instant classics and a part of Russian culture.

Blurb: An eccentric comedy about a student named Shurik, who goes to the Caucasus for work and meets local chief Saakhov, a man full of guile. Having been duped by conniving Saakhov, Shurik, with the assistance of three famous crooks, abducts the beautiful Nina. Now it’s up to Shurik to figure out where Nina is held prisoner and how to save her.

(This is for those who asked me about Putin’s reference to this film! You may recall Putin mentioned a line from this film in his recent annual Q&A – the one about who destroyed the 17th century chapel: ‘And the 17th century chapel we have also destroyed?’ In the comment section I’d explained what that line meant. Note, in the movie they are actually referring to the 14th century chapel. Please see full explanation in comments for Putin holds annual Q&A marathon (FULL VIDEO – Eng))

Operation Y and Shurik’s Other Adventures – Eng subs (Rus: Операция «Ы» и другие приключения Шурика

5+ STARS. The first film about the kindly and soft-hearted Shurik, who, when necessary, can show spunk and courage. The second film in the Shurik trilogy is The Prisoner of Caucasus. In this first instalment, Shurik is still a student; the film consists of 3 separate hilarious and educational episodes, describing his funny and inadvertently heroic adventures.

Blurb: A series of 3 short film comedies, where the protagonist, a student named Shurik: 1. reforms a malicious idler at a construction site; 2. frantically prepares for an exam, failing to notice his exam preparation buddy is actually a pretty girl; 3. with the help of a granny catches three burglars attempting to rob a warehouse.

And it’s 2017!

ADDED JAN. 1. 2017. These two Russian films are great to watch any time of year!

Ivan Vasilievich Changes Professions – with english subtitles  (Rus: Иван Васильевич меняет профессию). In the US it was released as ‘Ivan Vasilievich Back to the Future.’

5+ STARS – deserves all 10!

Hilarious and charming comedy, with elements of social satire, based on M. Bulgakov’s play “Ivan Vasilievich” about a time machine, which inadvertently transports the smart czar Ivan the Terrible into the twentieth century. At the same time, tsar Ivan’s look-alike, not very bright bureaucrat Bunsha, together with a shrewd thief George Miloslavsky, by mistake get transported  into the ancient Russia. The result is a cool and funny comedy of errors you’ll remember.

This is also the third installment of Shurik’s adventures, where Shurik is a researcher and inventor of the time machine.

.
.
The Diamond Arm  – with english subtitles (Rus: Бриллиантовая рука)
.

5+ STARS – deserves all the stars it can get! Cool, sweet, action packed, comical and satirical, with great songs and soundtrack, with lines that became instant hits and a part of the Russian culture. Funny and fun – don’t miss!

Blurb: An awkward and kind-hearted family man, Semyon Semyonovich, by mistake gets entangled in a major smuggling operation during his tour abroad. Being confused with the crook he travels with, he becomes the unwilling and unwitting courier, carrying precious jewels in his fake arm cast. Throughout the dangerous and elaborate cat a mouse game, which turns into a comedy of errors, Semyon Semyonovich manages to outsmart the international criminals.

LADA RAY’S LIFE-SHIFTING RITUALS & CURES 

I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations

US expels 35 Russian diplomats, closes 2 Russian diplomatic compounds, one in New York and another in Maryland. RT article.

In cases like this I hate being right! Let me explain.

addendum-finla-predictions-p1

As I predicted in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16:
US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER, Addendum and the December 19 follow up, Obama, democrats, White House, CIA and their collective handlers are busy doing everything to embed as many time bombs, Berlin Walls and Iron Curtains as possible in order to sabotage any future efforts of the incoming Trump administration to improve relations with Russia. They are manufacturing that ‘straight jacket’ for Trump and his people, of which I spoke in my videos. I also said that winning election was only the beginning of the fight for Trump and his people.

This is getting ugly, and – hate to say – will get uglier.

The newest scandal is unheard of in its audacity and magnitude. Usually, this is simply not done. If a country thinks some of the diplomats are operatives (let’s face it, many are, regardless of the country), they prefer to keep them around due to the known quantity they represent. As the old saying goes: keep your friends close and enemies closer. Usually, unless there is a very good reason, diplomats don’t get expelled.

If someone does get expelled, that is usually one, two, or three at most. Normally it never goes beyond single digits. 35 is unheard of, especially in relations of such major countries.

The reason mass expulsions between Russia and US don’t occur is because both are supposed to be guarantors of a certain modicum of balance in the world. Therefore, on some level, diplomacies of major countries always feel responsibility to try and NOT tip the world out of balance, if they can help it.

putin-trump-billboard-in-montenegro-lets-make-the-world-great-again-2

The reason Obama is providing, that supposedly US diplomats were tailed or mistreated in Russia, is total BS. Anyone who ever dealt with diplomacy at all knows that this is done routinely, especially for high-profile countries’ diplomats. Russians are always tailed in the US and American diplomats are always tailed in Russia.

I dare say that Russians gave US diplomats way too much freedom in Russia. It is a very well-known fact that US ambassador Teft has been riding around Russia with suitcases full of dollars, giving these out like hotcakes to anyone who promises to start a color revolution in Russia. The videos of his, and his underlings’ meetings with various subversives, excuse me, ‘revolutionaries’ who want to overturn Putin, have been recorded and shown publicly, including on YouTube.

Previously, the same was done by Teft’s predecessor, Michael… what’s his name… You know, the one with whom I recently had that infamous exchange on Twitter and who tried to convince me that he ‘never tried to orchestrate color revolution in Russia.’ Oh, yes: Michael McFaul. Sure, wag the dog, Michael. We all so believe you – not.

This is the post: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. Incidentally, there was a continuation to that exchange, in which McFaul continued the same ‘wag the dog’ line, plus he employed some very interesting trolls, whom I had to ban on Twitter.

MacFaul was recently added to the sanctions list by Russia in response to US adding more Russian politicians to its sanctions list. He is a personal friend of Obama. I can see how Obama may be feeling – how do we put it mildly – ***hurt.

The problem that Teft and his predecessor McFaul have encountered was that the money was taken by the Russian neo-liberal pro-West opposition, to be simply pocketed. No one did anything to advance the ‘noble cause’ of the color revolution in Russia. Tell you more, even if they wanted to do so, they simply couldn’t. Chances are, the people would simply rip them apart if they did.

In 2011 there was an attempt at color revolution in Moscow, which is referred to as ‘The Bolotnaya protests.’ The protest initially gathered 100,000 people, by some estimates. The stated slogan of the protest was to unseat Putin and Medvedev, not let Putin run for re-election in 2012, and change the constitutional order in Russia.

Simply said, they were gearing for the coup.

However, as it turned out, the US-paid provocateurs, such as Navalny, Nemtsov, Kasyanov and others gathered people under the wrong pretenses. In other words, people were simply lied to about the reasons for the gathering. Some actually thought they came to protest some sort of law they didn’t like; moreover, there were those who thought they came to support Putin. Very few supported the overturning of the Russian government.

The result was that many people left the protests and never came back. Next Bolotnaya protest gathered only 10,000.

Meanwhile, an alternative protest was gathering on Moscow’s Poklonnaya Gora. The protests against Bolotnaya and neo-liberals, and in support of Putin, gathered 300,000 people. The eye-witnesses said that it easily could have been 500,000 and more. But authorities, fearing the dangerous overcrowding of the Metro, as the unheard of crowds kept coming, closed down nearby Metro stations. Some were unable to join because of that.

After seeing the turnout of the pro-Putin Poklonnaya Gora protest, Bolotnaya just deflated and died down.

In 2012 Putin was re-elected with nearly 64% of votes, beating his own earlier record.

And then there was the Kiev maidan of 2014. US believed that it would be easy to topple Russia after Ukraine. However, the sanctions, ruble attacks, oil plunge, vilifying of Putin, baiting and attempts of isolation of Russia – all that backfired.

I just imagine the perma-perplexed expression on Obama’s and his cronies’ faces. How come the CIA/MI5 playbook that always worked for them just stopped performing in Russia? Isn’t Russian economy supposed to be shattered to pieces, as Obama declared? Aren’t Russian people supposed to be crazy unhappy that their standard of living suddenly halved, thanks to the West’s sabotage?

Instead, the Russian society consolidated like a monolith around Putin. Putin’s rating shot up to 80%, then 86%, then 90% and even up to 94% at one point. Meanwhile, the popularity of various neo-libs and pro-West provocateurs in Russia plunged to below 1%.

Well, if these – how shall I put it mildly – NOT very intelligent people ever listened to my videos or read FuturisTrendcast, if they, in their arrogant stupidity, ever bothered to check out my predictions, they’d know that Russia is the Great Balancer, that she presently is rebalancing the world away from the West, and that this is the TIME OF RUSSIA.

This is not the first time Russia has to step in to rebalance the world that has been plunged into a severe imbalance by the overly aggressive, yang West (or East, depending on the era). If these very ignorant and silly people read history books, they’d know not to attack Russia. Every time Russia is attacked the attacker pays a very large, often disastrous price. I can’t even begin to list all the countries that discovered this the hard way – some of them actually ceased to exist, and many became greatly diminished.

This time it’s not a hot war – it is a devious 4D hybrid war, but it’s a full-scale war nevertheless.

Therefore, whatever they try to do, it won’t work. The tide has changed, we are entering a very different era, as THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT gains momentum.

The moves made by Obama and his cronies are remarkable and unusual for an outgoing lame duck US president, who at this time is supposed to play golf. The frantic hurry and maliciousness of their attacks reeks of extreme desperation.

Recently, responding to a reader question, I calibrated Admiral John Kirby, the spokesperson for the US State Dept. His calibration was quite telling. Today, let me calibrate a few more US politicians for you and this will give you a very good idea what’s going on. ALL ABOUT CALIBRATIONS.

Kirby: Calibration (C) – 45 (guilt – almost near death, some are suicidal at this level; his confusion and desperation are extreme); Chi – 95 (grief, despondency)

US Sec. of State John Kerry: C – 95 (grief, despondency); Chi 180 (pride – this one’s Chi is resilient – but look at the plunge in his calibration!).

Obama (I detect such problems with this one, so much despondency and darkness that I have chills as I write this): C – 49 SAME AS KIRBY! (guilt – almost near death, some are suicidal at this level; his confusion and desperation are extreme. Note that just one point above, at 50, is the level of apathy); Chi – 48 – same!

I’m not going to calibrate the deranged Samantha Power, US ambassador to the UN, and CIA. They would return similar values.

At these extremely low energy levels we would usually see various terrorists and mass murderers. Decisions made with this kind of vibrational calibration are very dangerous as such individuals see the world in a very warped way. They are simply unable to perceive events and situations around them adequately. Wars, terrorism and mass destruction happens at this level. And this is the ‘leadership’ of the US! These are the ones who write the laws, execute policy and decide the future of America!

Your Personal Feng Shui Empowerment & Success Report by Lada Ray

LADA RAY’S LIFE-SHIFTING RITUALS & CURES 

#LadaRay predicted it and it happened… yet again – #TRUMP! Plus a touching tweet from a Swede

This is just a very simple little post. Not to toot my own horn, but congrats to #DonaldTrump! 

As I predicted in my latest video: TRUMP vs CLINTON: How Will Electors Vote on Dec. 19?despite all the noise, false info dumps, propaganda and confusion, Trump indeed was confirmed as the President-elect of the USA, whether some like it or not. I also predicted that a couple of Trump Electors might switch and vote differently – but only a couple – while some Hillary Electors may vote against her. And this is also what happened!

Now the real work begins, and it will be very hard, controversial and tumultuous, also per my predictions in the Trump vs Clinton and EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16!

Fasten your seat belts! THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT IS GAINING MOMENTUM!

HOLIDAY PREDICTION: I know we all want a relaxing and joyful holiday, but unfortunately, things will continue being tense and eventful during this Holiday Season, as the Great Earth Shift continues accelerating.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

LadaRayLive 18. TRUMP vs CLINTON: How Will Electors Vote on Dec. 19?

Elector Rebellion on Dec. 19? Can Hillary Still Win Presidency?

Soros financed protests. NWO collapse and the fight of the US elites.

Trump already making a difference, before taking office? Trump’s pre-White House moves: appointment of Rex Tillerson of ExxonMobil to the post of the Secretary of State, Airforce 1 Boeing Tweet, IBM promises jobs and ‘made in America.’ Fed rate hike.

Who is trying to sabotage Trump’s presidency? Trump’s assassination?

Oil vs clean energy, and more…

Plus, Lada Ray predictions.

Appointment of Rex Tillerson of Exxon Mobil to the post of the Secretary of State and the clash of the US elites:

Recall what I said in ESR16: the elites that get it and don’t want to be left behind during the Great Earth Shift are behind Trump. Now we are beginning to see what kind of elites are behind Trump. Tillerson is a prominent representative of such elites. Being pro-Russian or at least neutral to Russia, is a major pre-requisite. Tillerson spoke up against Russian sanctions, for which he and his company got in trouble. He continued working with Russian partner Rosneft, despite sanctions. Received Order of Friendship from Putin. Tillerson appointment is a strong message by Trump.

As I have discussed before, Russia – The Great Balancer is presently rebalancing the world into a new reality.

PRE-Announcing 2017 LADA RAY WEBINARS!

Some of the topics that will be covered:

1. Why USA hasn’t collapsed yet and its future timeline. Comparisons of the collapse of the USSR vs USA & EU. Why various gurus got the timing and details wrong? How the collapse of the USA and West is similar, and how it’s completely unlike the USSR collapse?

2. Will Trump be able to change the outcome and save America from collapse? What to expect from Trump’s first term and how will his destiny shape up?

3. The future of America and the West. What do you need to do to prepare for what’s to come. Lada Ray’s Futurist Trendcast.

4. Global relocation to avoid the collapse, or taking a stand in your country? How Lada sees it.

4. Dollar collapse and the multi-currency world. Why the West pushes for cashless society? How dangerous is it for our freedoms and democracy? The multidimensional perspective: how Lada sees the future of money. Predictions regarding gold and silver, Bitcoin and digital currency. What if you keep your dollars or euros in the bank? Plus, what kind of investments may be favorable going forward?

All this and much more to come in 2017! Participants of live Lada Ray Webinars will have the opportunity to ask questions! Those who want to listen at their leisure, will be able to do so later. First Lada Ray Webinar will be announced in January 2017.

My 5-Year Anniversary, Predictions, Breaking News and Lots of Goodies!

Champagne bottle

Hello, dear friends,

It’s time to pop some virtual champagne and say a toast!

Lada Ray is celebrating 5 Years with WordPress!

5 Year Anniversary Achievement
Happy 5th Anniversary with WordPress.com!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

It all began 5 years ago, in November 2011, with Lada Ray Blog – a humble author’s blog.

Two years later, in the end of 2013, anticipating what was about to happen in Ukraine, I started FuturisTrendcast, which became active as soon as the events in Kiev escalated. As of March 1, 2014, FuturisTrendcast had a mere 10 followers, 2,000 clicks and 500 blog visits.

Less than 3 years later, FuturisTrendcast has over 17,000 followers from more than 80 countries, and it is closing in on 800,000 visits.

What’s up: lots of breaking news and announcements!

I have taken a few days off after all the hard work associated with US Elections and Trump /Hillary predictions. I have to say, unusually for me, I felt exhausted.

First of, all my US Elections predictions have come true. Some additional ones are beginning to manifest.

Those who are new or those who haven’t had the chance yet, please listen to my FREE US Elections and US future predictions videos on YouTube (please make sure to like these videos, comment and subscribe to my channel!).

There is more!

Dear loyal supporters, please read about the upcoming VIP gifts at the bottom!

BREAKING GLOBAL EVENTS GALORE COMING YOUR WAY!

There are many major Earth Shifting events that have happened and continue happening all around the world. While we all were fixated on US elections, presidential elections took place in Bulgaria and Moldova; in both pro-Russian candidates led the electoral race.

Breaking news: the new Moldova President-elect is pro-Russian Igor Dodon!

Meanwhile, the presidential elections in the breakaway Pridnestrovie (Transnistria) are also nearing.

For much more about what’s happening in Moldova, Pridnestrovie and the pivotal, yet convoluted, Black Sea region read: Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

While we all followed US Elections, the Idiocracy+ dumb and dumber in power in Kiev managed to almost get Ukraine into a war with Belarus, and they succeeded in getting themselves into very hot waters with Trump, even before he took office. Ukraine is facing a devastatingly cold and disastrous winter, Kiev junta is on its last legs and for the first time since 2014 coup, a genuine revolt is brewing.

All the above is happening just as I predicted in 2014 and 2015!

Meantime, in Moscow, St. Pete, Crimea and Donetsk major terrorist plots have been uncovered by FSB and MGB (MSS of DPR).

At the same time, the Carlsen – Karjakin 2016 World Chess Championship is taking place in NYC. Already dubbed ‘the Chess Cold War,’ it has more geopolitical stories to tell than appears on the surface. By the way, I have a prediction regarding the outcome of this record-setting match.

All these events deserve separate articles and videos. I’ll be coming out with posts and YT videos this week and next, where I’ll tell you all about these events, with additional predictions! Sometimes I may have to post 2 articles and/or videos per day to catch up on everything important!

Please stay tuned and don’t miss anything!

Much more coming your way…

We are approaching the Year 2017, which is ranked as Year No.1 in numerology. It is also the Year of the Rooster, according to the Chinese Horoscope. Per my predictions in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16, we are approaching the most important and Earth Shifting time of this decade and beyond, when new events and breakthrough changes will continue accelerating. 2017-18 will be pivotal years for humanity and for each of us.

There are few more practical earthly wisdom systems than Feng Shui. It works with you to co-create a more secure and fulfilled life. I feel that this is a great time to share more of my feng shui knowledge with you all. This knowledge will serve you well and it will become exceedingly valuable during the upcoming Earth Shift turmoils. (As some of you may know, I am internationally certified Feng Shui Master: MORE).

I am working on expanding, and adding more crucial info to my signature Your Personal Feng Shui Empowerment & Success Report by Lada Ray. The report will be enriched with additional valuable and unique advice on how to best benefit, and how to protect yourself energetically, in the upcoming Year of the Rooster.

We will also be coming up with separate Feng Shui and Energy reports, which will contain Lada Ray’s advice on how to protect yourself while traveling, especially to foreign countries (which more people will be doing); how to clear and balance energy; how to protect your home and loved ones, especially, in view of the upcoming Energy Earth Shift and the associated increase in violence.

Stay tuned for the enhanced and new Feng Shui services, which will be announced by the end of November – beginning of December 2016, in time for the Holidays!

Intro and topics


Welcome to Lada Ray’s Earth Shift Report 16: US ELECTIONS AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER. Earth Shift Reports (ESRs) are supported exclusively by reader donations. Your donation is used to continue delivering FREE content on FuturisTrendcast, LadaRay.info site and Lada Ray YouTube channel.

ESRs address the hottest and most important global topics of this decade and millennium: geopolitical analysis, exclusive intel, clandestine ops, explosive truth, plus Lada Ray’s sought after predictions!

We are pleased to welcome Paul Plane, host of Time Monk Radio show, THE PLANE TRUTH. In this exclusive interview Paul asks Lada poignant questions to reveal the truth, especially for the Earth Shift Report 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER! 

Topics Summary:

The rebellion of the US electorate and clash of US elites.
Why Bernie Sanders caved in and did he really mean to win?
Who is Hillary Clinton and whose interests does she represent?
Spiritual Geopolitics: Clinton scandals and illnesses as manifestations of her tortured soul and major soul loss.

Who is Donald Trump and whose interests does he represent?
Why are Putin and Russia such big topics during these US elections?
Did Russians really hack DNC emails?
The Kremlin agent? Does Trump really have Russian connection?

Third parties and the outdated US electoral system.
Can this system be changed?
Is there a chance of a US civil war?

How and why Trump really got on top, despite fierce resistance?
How his rise reflects the discontent of the US electorate and desire to be friends with Russia.
What to expect from Hillary should she win?
What to expect from Trump and will he really be that different? 
Can we expect a breakthrough improvement in US – Russia relations should Trump win the presidency?
Who will win these elections – Lada’s explosive predictions.
Last, but not least: exclusive Lada Ray’s Quantum Calibrations for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, with interpretations. How these calibrations reflect the essence of each candidate and their prospects.

Topics in order of discussion:

PART 1

1. The rebellion of the US electorate. Rebellion within Democratic and Republican parties.

2. The clash between two opposing camps of the US and global elites. Why it’s happening and why the clash will be intensifying.

3. Bernie Sanders, and why he caved in to Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump, and why he won nomination.

4. Is US really the NWO pointman and how NWO headquarters moved to the US. What about European elites and what is the future of Western-based NWO project?

5. Hillary Clinton as NWO-based US elites chosen candidate. Why do they hang on to her despite all her health and email problems.

6. Lada Ray’s Spiritual Geopolitics and Quantum Calibrations: Hillary’s health issues as manifestations of her ailing soul and soul loss. How her soul is rebelling against her many crimes and lies.

7. Why Putin and Russia are such big topics in these US Elections? Why Hillary and her camp accuse Trump of being ‘the Kremlin’ or ‘KGB’ agent? Did Russians really hack the emails and are they behind Wikileaks disclosures? Why such hysteria?

PART 2

1. The outdated US Electoral College system, and the needed change. Can the system really be fixed? PREDICTIONS.

2. Hillary vs. Trump prospects for winning the elections.

3. What to expect from Hillary Clinton should she win. Whom does she really represent? Does Hillary really want to start World War III?

4. Who is really Donald Trump and whom he represents.

5. Why are there so many violent protests against Trump rallies? Who’s behind them and why.

6. Why Trump really got to the top, despite fierce resistance of the elites within his own party. How it reflects the overall US discontent. How it reflects the desire of many Americans to be friends with Russia and the admiration towards Putin.

7. A billion dollar question: will Trump really be that different? Can we expect a breakthrough improvement in US – Russia relations, should Trump win presidency?
Will he really be the one who will ‘make American great again’? Or is the future path predetermined? PREDICTIONS.

8. In 2015 and early 2016 I predicted that “democrats will lose this election,’ yet I didn’t name Trump as the winner. Why didn’t I? Do I still think democrats will lose? Will Trump then win? PREDICTIONS.

9. Revealing Quantum Calibrations for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – and their interpretation. What do they tell us about each candidate and their chances of winning. What do they tell us about what kind of presidents they may be?

Where to Invade Next: Michael Moore Documentary (and #911truth) w. film links!

I have to say, I missed Michael Moore’s sparkling humor and his ability to get to the very hard-hitting emotional and existential core of the big issues he likes to tackle. Without question the best documentary filmmaker alive, he at one point or another woke up a lot of Americans to the real state of affairs in their country and beyond. My personal Michael Moore favorites are Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11.

 Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Official Trailer

fahrenheit-911-cover

In my opinion, Capitalism: A Love Story wasn’t hard-hitting enough. It felt as if Moore held back in many places due to personal threats and the movie industry’s refusals to show it in the USA. Pity: the film, which still helped people understand things that were previously concealed by American propaganda, became compromised as a result. From what I’ve heard, for many Americans it was still a revelation. Personally for me it was either old news or half-truths, perhaps due to the fact that I knew the whole story, having been born in the USSR and having lived in various countries and on various continents, including Russia, Ukraine, China, USA, Cuba and Europe… And, incidentally, having worked at AIG and Smith Barney/Citigroup.

Capitalism: A Love Story – Trailer

I already am in love with the title of the new one: Where to Invade Next. Moore is a master of titles – as someone who constantly sweats to find a worthy name for my various written works, I admire his titling prowess. The trailer sounds very promising, too. Can’t wait to watch the film!

Trailer for Where to Invade Next – new 2016 release in Blu-ray:

Michael Moore movies

P.S. Granted, I don’t watch TV, but it appears Where to Invade Next film was successfully silenced, since it first came out last year. Yet I’ve only just heard about it due to US elections and its re-release in Blu-ray in 2016.

If you want to watch the film:

Courtesy Maddie at 1EarthUnited blogWatch full film Where to Invade Next, now posted on Maddie’s new site! She also posted excellent copy of The Russians are Coming! LINK

ADDED 9/12/16 Quick Review!

Just finished watching the film. Can probably give it 3 stars, no more. Actually, I expected more from Michael Moore. There were some good finds and things in it that I would agree with. However, overall it felt like it was made for the lowest common  denominator and there were too many half-truths in it. My reaction to this one was similar to ‘Capitalism, a Love Story’ above. In other words, I’m too advanced for it, but it is probably the kind of movie that may be good for average  Americans to help wake them up.

The fifteenth 9/11 anniversary

P.S. Yesterday I’ve escaped the noisy and crowded New York City, and today is a 9/11 anniversary. Notice that I have published this post at exactly 8:45 on 9/11/16. Fifteen years ago at this very minute the first ‘plane’ hit first of the Twin Towers in New York City, changing our lives forever. At the time I worked for Smith Barney. I vividly recall what happened the morning of 9/11/2001, having observed the whole thing in slow motion from my office in NJ, while constantly thinking that I had a narrow escape.

I described what I saw and knew at the time in this post:  The Neglected Russian Gift to the American People, Geopolitics of the Middle East and Putin.

The neglected gift refers to a Russian sculptor’s monument dedicated to the victims of 9/11, which was shyly relegated by US authorities to out-of-the-way NJ backwaters. Here it is (read and see more pics in the post linked above):

tear-drop-monument NJ 9 11

The truth of 9/11 turned out to be very different from the one portrayed by official US propaganda. It’s not news anymore. Still, it’s good to review the facts once in a while. I’d published this compilation as a record keeper and a reminder: What Really Happened on 9/11? Telling Video Compilation.

Also, listen to new radio show: Freeman Fly Occult Symbology – 9/11 Special Interview – The Cosmic Switchboard. And stay tuned for my upcoming news!

Incidentally, I’ve just added some newest juicy intel and analysis to my yesterday’s post: Despite ban, Belarus Team Clandestinely Carries Russian Flag into Rio Paralympics. It reads a bit like a thriller! Don’t miss it!

How Crimea Was Transferred to Ukraine, Soviet Gold Standard and Khrushchev’s Folly

LADA’S FOREWORD

Dear readers,

Our friend Stanislav has generously shared his own, very thorough translation of a new Russian article concerning historic facts related to the 1954 illegal transfer of Crimea to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and some real Soviet documents of that era.

Both Stanislav and I are well familiar with the whole story, having grown up in those parts. We now live in different countries of the West, and because of that, we fully realize how confusing it may be for foreigners, especially for Westerners, to sift through all the propaganda and deliberate distortions you all are being fed when it comes to Russia, Ukraine, Crimea and Eurasia. I know how difficult it is for honest truth seekers to sift through an avalanche of lies and hoaxes. Some of these lies, sensationalist hoaxes and distortions are very sexy and tempting to believe in — if you don’t know the real truth.

I’ll tell you a secret about Stanislav and me. It wasn’t enough for us to grow up in Russia and then go on living in the West. We are two of a rare breed, who preserved our souls intact through all changes, trials and tribulations. We never got poisoned by bitterness, resentment or cynicism as we watched the USSR disintegrate, Russia plunge into the disaster of the 1990s, the once safe and pleasant streets we remembered as little children turn into war zones, and oligarchy take over. While living in the West, we also managed not to succumb to Western brainwashing, unlike some other emigrants. As we learned new things, discovered that the ‘king was really naked,’ found out the truth about global manipulations and hidden agendas, we grew wiser and savvier about the ways of the world. But we didn’t lose ourselves: we preserved our integrity, our spirit and mind intact; we kept our common sense, hope and optimism.

And it is for this reason, ladies and gentlemen, that you all will benefit tremendously from reading our blogs and watching videos we make or translate. We do it to help people. We don’t make money off any of this, except some small donations I get for my articles and Earth Shift Reports, which help to cover some of my expenses.

In the end of 2013 I began FuturisTrendcast in the name of helping people discover the real truth: all I wanted was to educate, illuminate the truth and show the way. It is for this same reason that Stanislav maintains his blog. Both Stanislav and I are here to help unearth those precious few kernels of truth that are being buried deep by those who seek to manipulate and keep you in the dark.

To my dismay, not only Western MSM, but even the Western-based ‘alternative media,’ is guilty of distortions, non-factual sensationalism and outright fantasies or lies. In the past week I received four emails from some of my most valued readers and supporters. They all wanted my opinion about publications on Putin and Russia. Articles in question were published in one large and popular alternative media publication, whose name I won’t say so not to give it additional promo. One article talked about ‘the six clones of Putin’ and another had something to do with not being sure whether ‘Russia was evil and to what degree.’

Perhaps because of this I keep to myself and my own work, collaborating only with those of whose knowledge, intentions and integrity I am sure. I replied that I do not read this publication and don’t recommend it to my readers — well, unless you want to live in a dark and hopeless fantasy world that is far from truth or reality.

On the other hand, if you want to co-create your reality, if you want your children (and if we are lucky, you too) to live in a better world — stick around FuturisTrendcast!

Please note that I’ve already addressed hoaxes, who creates them and why, and how alternative media is manipulated into spreading them (knowingly or unknowingly) in the following works:

The logic and process of a hoax creation explained fully in: ESR 1 RELOADED: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?

Article: How to Tell a Hoax from Targeted Info Dump (Navigating MSM and Alternative Media)

Interview: Lada Ray ~ Putin’s Disappearance and the New Silk Road ~ The Plane Truth 

In the midst of all the confusion it’s especially important and precious to be able to read honest translations of real historic documents. Many thanks to Stanislav for his work and generous sharing!

Those who follow FT know our friend Stanislav as Nemo, who often leaves very informative comments under my articles. He usually includes links to his own posts or to videos/articles elsewhere, which help understand what’s really going on around Russia, EU and Eurasia. Please do check out the comment section for his comments. Incidentally, Stanislav promises us other treats soon: ‘I am finishing translating a documentary film, and have an interesting translation of an article in the works… All in the name of education.’ I’ll either post links to his new translations, or re-post them on FT.

As to my own work, just by way of keeping you all posted:

I am finishing up the expanded version of EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 reloaded: UKRAINE – TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE. It includes the original ESR2 Ukraine: True History, plus the best of my materials and classic predictions from 2014. I am adding a new, long article about the latest developments, plus a much expanded analysis and predictions about Ukraine’s prospects. My 2014 predictions are beginning to shape up now and I’ll explain how. I hope to finish it this weekend and release ESR2 reloaded no later than Monday.

I am also working on my new ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. I’m glad I’ve waited a bit. My newest intel and inside info is simply smashing! ESR8 will come out around February 22. Don’t miss!

I want to time these two reports to the second anniversary of the 2/22/2014 Kiev coup that unseated Yanukovich and plunged the country into war and devastation. ESR9: CRIMEAN AGENDA (The battle for Crimean has only begun!)  is to follow, and hopefully I can time it to the second anniversary of the Crimean Referendum that returned the peninsula to native shores.

Since these two seminal events took place in 2014, the Earth Shift has accelerated. Geopolitical situation in the Russian World, Middle East, EU and worldwide has changed so dramatically that looking back we may honestly say we now live in a different reality. But, as I’ve pointed out, the battle for Crimea, the battle for Eurasia and the battle for our world’s common future is only beginning! My reports will help you make sense of everything that is going on; they will reveal the truths that I GUARANTEE you would never know otherwise, since they are being hidden from you, or distorted!

More exciting news! I’ve been asked to do a couple of interviews with some very nice people. These should come out some time in March. Details soon!

 

In conclusion, and I hope Stanislav doesn’t mind my speaking on his behalf:

Our only goal is to help you see and understand the truth, as well as to right the historic wrongs. We don’t ask for much in return.

To help us know that our work is not in vain, we only ask this:

Please read and share your thoughts in comments (please follow BLOG RULES and be respectful to all)!  

Please follow our blogs, like our posts and share the links with everyone you know!

Your donations are also greatly appreciated!

STANISLAV’S ARTICLE

Who and How Transferred Crimea into Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1952-1954

See original article

Below is my translation of a very informative article by Mikhail Smirnov, published inSvobodnaja Mysl’ (Free Thought).

It is worth noting, that when the author points out the Russian roots in Crimea, he is most probably referring to the Scythians, who are just the same people as Rus, but going under a different name. See my summary of the documentary Yes, Scythians Are Us.

When reading the text below, note one historic peculiarity of USSR of that time. While 14 republics were almost always denoted by their national name – e.g Ukrainian SSR (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic) – there was one exception. In USSR no one spoke of Russia, to the extent that the existence of Russia as a republic was largely forgotten. Instead the acronym RSFSR was always in use (decoded as Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic).

At the end of this post, after the main article, I present my translation of the closing speech by K.E Voroshilov from the stenography of the session of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR from the 19th of February 1954, which is an important historical evidence, setting the stage for the transfer and for the peninsular and the expectation connected to the act.


While it can be argued that it was not Khrushchev who made the decision on the transfer of Crimea, his rabid anti-Stalinism and voluntarism certainly became the propelling power behind this whole undertaking. It seems, there were no objective reasons for this decision.

In the history of the presence of Crimea within modern Ukraine, which began with the official transfer of the Crimean region of the RSFSR to the Ukrainian SSR in 1954 and is associated with the name N.S.Khrushchev, you can set apart the history of decision-making on behalf of Crimea, from hatching of the idea to the party-bureaucratic mechanism of its implementation.

At the time of its transfer into the Ukrainian SSR in 1954, Crimea had the status of the region within the RSFSR. From 1921 to 1945 it was a multi-national autonomy within the Russian Federation – the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (KrASSR) with the official languages ​​of Russian and Tatar, and in places of compact settlement – also German and Hebrew. After the well-known dramatic events during the War, the administrative status of Crimea was downgraded: Crimean Autonomy was eliminated by converting it into the Crimean region, officially – due to changes in the ethnic composition of the population of Crimea. Crimean Autonomy was restored in 1991 as part of the Ukrainian SSR, and in 1992 it was renamed into the Republic of Crimea.

In the public mind there is a long-established stereotype, which firmly connects the transfer of the Crimean region of the RSFSR into the Ukrainian SSR with the name of N.S. Khrushchev. By and large it is justified, but, after all, a few comments clarifying and enriching the picture of the event will be reasonably useful.

According to the memoirs of the contemporaries of the events, the idea of ​​the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine began to ripen in Khrushchev’s mind ever since the time, when he in 1944-1947 headed the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR, and at the same time was the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Ukrainian SSR. The year was 1944, the war was still going on. The boss off the USSR, I.V. Stalin, demanded that Khrushchev sent from the Ukrainian SSR to the neighbouring republic 100 thousand people – they were supposed to help with the rebuilding of the Russian Federation. But the position of Ukraine itself was not less, but even more severe, as during the Great Patriotic War almost the whole of its territory saw devastating military operations, and almost all of it has been exposed to enemy occupation. Nikita Khrushchev was furious. “Ukraine itself is destroyed, and more is taken from us” – he raged. (Head of the Soviet trade unions, Lavrentij Pogrebnoy, was a witness to Khrushchev’s indignation in 1944. A few years later, he told one of the Soviet writers about the events.)

Khrushchev could not directly oppose Stalin’s orders. So perhaps even then, or a little later, he hatched the idea that a decent compensation for this extra effort (and even, maybe for Starvation [translator’s note: Gologomor, for the real history surrounding it, I’d recommend reading the article The Real Truth About USSR: Golodomor and Collectivization in Ukraine]), could become a significant territorial gain of Ukraine within the USSR: of course, at the expense of the beneficiary of the “Ukrainian brotherly” assistance – the Russian Federation, which was to boot the most rich territory-wise. Even a cursory glance at the map of the Soviet Union was enough to see the most likely scenario for this: geographically isolated from the rest of the territory of the RSFSR, but located in the vicinity of the Ukrainian SSR and adjacent to it, is the Crimean peninsula. And being by nature a voluntarist, he vowed that he will get Crimea, whatever it takes.

But Khrushchev began the direct implementation of his idea later, in the first half of the 50s, or more precisely – starting from 1952, when the signs of limitations in functional capacity of Stalin became more and more obvious for the party leadership. (Stalin announced that he was going to retire at the October Central Committee plenum of 1952, which was held after the completion of the XIX Congress of the CPSU. But already starting from February 1951, three Politburo members (G.M. Malenkov, L.P. Beria, N.A. Bulganin) were given the right to sign various documents on behalf of Stalin, as, according to Molotov, due to the decrease in performance he did not sign many government documents for a prolonged period of time.) The real opportunity opened up only in connection with the death of Stalin. But it is possible that another significant cause for activation of Khrushchev on this subject at that time was also the activity of a supporter of Stalin’s policy in regard to the Crimea, which brought to the fore the ideas that went counter to Khrushchev’s.

According to unconfirmed records, in October 1952, the first secretary of the Crimean regional party (in 1949-1954) P.I. Titov, while being a delegate of the XIX Party Congress, addressed personally to Stalin with a written offer to rename the Crimean region into Tauridia. In his opinion, it would be entirely consistent with the history of the region, starting from the XVIII century. In particular, as one of the arguments, Titov appealed to the forgotten Soviet Republic of Tauridia. He believed that for the Crimean region of the RSFSR “it’s high time to restore its Russian, Rus name”.

Titov’s proposal was not priorly discussed in the Crimean Regional Party Committee and was not approved by them. But we know that the second person in the region – D.S. Polanski (in 1952-1954 the chairman of the executive committee of the Crimean Regional Council) – objected to this initiative. On the other hand he supported the transfer of Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR. Twenty years later, the nomenclature Party member G.V. Myasnikov, while at that time the second secretary of the Moscow city committee of the Komsomol remembered Polyansky thus: “I remember how he went up the hill. He met Khrushchev and Titov in the Crimea. An idea of ​​the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine was brought up. Titov rejected the idea right away, while Polyansky said it was “brilliant”. The next day they gathered the plenum of the Crimean Regional Committee, Titov was driven out, while Poljansky became the first secretary of the regional committee.”

But it is more likely that this “cleansing out” of Titov took place more gradually, after the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of USSR, N.S. Khrushchev visited the Crimea in October 1953. Khrushchev’s son-in-law, Adjoubei Alex, who accompanied him on his trip around the country, recalled that when Khrushchev came to the Crimea at that time, he was shocked by how disastrous was the situation in the region and how great was the discontent by this among the local residents. At the same time, however, Khrushchev remained true to himself, and when he saw at the local airport some aircraft, he immediately ordered to fly it over to Kiev. And then, a few hours later, he already talked, over a supper, with the local party leaders about the transfer of Crimea and resettlement of Ukrainians into Crimea. Most likely, it was at this moment that an open dispute ensued between him and Titov. According to Titov’s deputy, L.G. Mezentsev, the head of the Crimea was called in to Moscow in mid-January of 1954 to inform him of preparation of a decision on the transfer of the region. He protested, for which on the 16th of January he was replaced with a Ukrainian Dmitry Polyansky. Thus, based on the totality of the memories of witnesses, it can be argued that P.I. Titov strongly objected to Khrushchev regarding the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine, and he had constant clashes with the Secretary of the Central Committee on this issue, which resulted in this imperious and prudent owner of the Crimean region being finally deposed to the rank of Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the RSFSR. In general, according to the researchers, Khrushchev initiated a rather limited number of people into his intentions with respect to Crimea. Among them – the first secretary (since June 1953) of the Communist Party of Ukraine A.I. Kirichenko, who, at the time, was also a candidate member of the Presidium of the Central Committee of CPSU and was in good standing with Khrushchev.

But Stalin, who was by that time ill, delayed an official response to Titov. According to the memoirs of some of Titov’s colleagues, in the spring of 1953 and later he, nevertheless, referred to a brief personal answer from Stalin, which was sent personally to him in late January 1953, saying that his proposal was “interesting and perhaps correct. This question can be discussed and resolved.” In the middle of November of 1953 Titov told about this opinion of Stalin to Khrushchev and Polyansky, when the principal decision on the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine had in fact already been made.

An indirect confirmation of the fact that Stalin was quite seriously considering Titov’s proposals, can be the process of renaming of the Crimean Tatar names into Russian ones, which began from the mid-1940s and which was initiated by Stalin himself after the deportation of the Tatar population from there. There are many sources describing this. For example, a comprehensive project on renaming in Crimea was dated with the 25th of September 1948, when the Crimean Regional Committee passed the decree “On renaming of settlements, streets, certain types of work, and other Tatar designations”. However, it was not planned to rename Crimea itself. But even before that, in the 1944-1946, 11 out of 26 Crimean regional centres were renamed (for example, the Ak-Mechetsky region into Chernomorskij, Larindorfsky into Pervomaisky) as well as 327 villages. In the period from 1948 to 1953, it was planned to rename some towns. The documents recorded in particular that Djankoi was going to become either Uzlovo, Severnyj or Verhnekrymsk, Saki turning into Ozernoje, and they wanted to call Bakhchisaray – “Pushkin”. Kerch was supposed to be given the name of “Korchev”, known from the old-Russian chronicles. In general, during 1947-1953 new – Russian – names were given to 1062 settlements and nearly 1300 natural object, mostly replacing Tatar ones. It is obvious that in the context of this process, also Titov’s proposal to change the name of the Crimea looked quite logical. However, the renaming slowed down when the turn of the cities came. And after Stalin’s death, the plan to rename the Crimean cities was abandoned altogether.

Thus, we can see that the project of the inclusion of Crimea into Ukraine was preceded by a project of strengthening of Russian presence in Crimea, and in 1952-1953, as a logical completion of the latter, there was also a project, which remained on the level of an idea, of re-renaming the Crimean region into Tauridian.

(An aside from the translator: Crimean Tatars are more likely Mongolians, the descendants of the Golden Horde of the Mongolian Khan Baty, who raided and occupied the peninsula in the 14th century. The name given to the peninsular by them was “Kyrim”, meaning “trench”. Before the Mongol occupation the peninsular had the Greek name of “Tauridia”. What the endemic population, Scythians, called their land back then is lost.)

As is known, the Russian presence in Crimea has been recorded since ancient chronicled times. Of particular interest to us – in the light of the events of the XX century that we discuss here – is “Tmutarakan” sub-plot of this presence. The original antique city of Panticapaeum, which in the era of the Khazarian Khaganate (translator note: For a well-researched foray into the history of Khazarian Kaganate, I would recommend reading Lada Ray’s Earth Shift Report 6: UKRAINE – NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?) of the VIII century got the name of Karsha or Charsha, which in Turkic means “market” or “bazaar”, is mentioned in the old-Russian historical records of the events of the X century under the Slavinised name of Krchev (Korchev) [Кърчевъ]. In the tenth century, Tmutarakan principality – part of the Ancient (Kievan) Rus – takes root on the Crimean and the Caucasian coasts of the Kerch Strait. Korchev was closely associated with the capital of the principality – Tmutarakan, while the Eastern geographers of that time called the Kerch Strait for the Russian River.

And so it was in Kerch that, after a long period of Ottoman history in Crimea, Russia once again establishes on the peninsula, several years before its full incorporation into the Russian Empire. In 1771 Russian troops took Kerch and neighbouring fortress Yeni-Kale. By the Kuchuk-Karnadzhiyskomu peace treaty between the Russian and Ottoman empires, which ended Russian-Turkish war of 1768-1774, this city with its fortress was the first of all the Crimea to become part of the Russian Empire, while, in accordance with that agreement, the Crimean Khanate as a whole then became independence from the Ottoman Empire, with the exception of the influence in the questions of religion. The manifesto of Catherine II was issued on the 8th of April 1783 and decreed the accession of Crimea, Taman and Kuban into the Russian Empire. By the decree of the 2nd of February 1784 Tauridian region (oblast) was established, covering some of the continental land. Later it was transformed into a province (county).

It is quite possible that the role of Kerch, and the Kerch Peninsula as a whole, in the Russian development on Crimea was the foundation for another P.I. Titov’s proposal in November 1953, which he already addressed to Polyansky and Khrushchev, and reiterated in January 1954. It pertained to the inclusion of this region (ie. Eastern Crimea) with the status of the “Kerch region” into the composition of RSFSR. Already then Titov had a well-founded belief that it was inadvisable for RSFSR “to vacate” Crimea, and, thanks to the newly formed region, the strategically important Kerch (Azov-Black Sea) Strait – “Russian River” – would still be a part of RSFSR. Titiov’s “Kerch” was outright rejected by Khrushchev followers, so much so, that the entire water area of ​​the Kerch Strait in the subsequent transfer of the Crimea ended up being assigned to the Ukrainian SSR.

The question of what was the nature of the whole of Crimean autonomy – national or territorial – is also of crucial importance. Lenin’s Sovnarkom initially created both types of autonomies, but over time only the national ones were left. The Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, in this regard, had become a unique autonomous construct, which retained its territorial nature. According to the All-Union census of 1939, Russians comprised 49.6% of the Crimean population, Crimean Tatars – 19.4%, Ukrainians – 13.7%, Jews – 5.8%, Germans – 4.6%. But as the total population during the war declined sharply, and its ethnic composition underwent fundamental changes, Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was transformed into the Crimean region (oblast) on the 30th of June 1945. Unlike most other autonomous regions, where there was the predominance of the indigenous population, the Crimean Autonomous Republic was not Tatar from the very beginning of its establishment. Moreover, 2/3 of the population of the Crimea at the time was Russian, and only one-third consisted of the peoples who had settled here before the Russians and made up the indigenous population of the peninsula. (Translator note: in the bird’s eye historic perspective, Russians are the indigenous population of the peninsula, who were driven from Crimea, but later returned.) At the same time, flirting with Kemalist Turkey, the Soviet leadership traditionally appointed mostly men of Tatar origin to the leading positions in the republic. This created a false impression that the Crimean autonomy was, like all the other, the national one – Crimean Tatar. But as it is known, in accordance with the provisions of the National Defence Commission of 11th of May and the 2nd of June 1944, of all Tatars of all ages (about 180 thousand people) were deported from Crimea to Kazakhstan. (Translator note: the exception was given to mixed-marriage families, where a Tatar woman was married to a Russian.)

All of the above sheds some light on the political context in which Khrushchev’s fateful for the history of the Crimea voluntarist decision was conceived and prepared. But it is equally important to take into account the details of the mechanism of this decision at the state level.

The fact is that N.S. Khrushchev became the first person in the USSR leadership only in 1955. While immediately after the death of Stalin (at the time of the death he held the post of the chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers), the head of government and a key figure in the leadership of the USSR was G.M. Malenkov. By the end of Stalin’s life, Malenkov was one of the main contenders for the post of supreme leader of the country, and immediately after his death, inherited the post of the chairman of the Council of Ministers. I.V. Stalin died on the 5th of March 1953, and at that time, in the beginning of the 1950s, this was the main post, while the position of the General Secretary of the CPSU was abolished, since, according to the late Stalinist concept of the governance structure, the Communist Party should no longer play a leading role in governing of the country.

M.S. Voslensky in his famous book “The Nomenclature” writes:

In the days after the death of Stalin in March 1953, it was customary to conclude speeches at the memorial meetings in the following typical ending: “Eternal glory to the Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, Secretary of the CPSU I.V. Stalin! Long live Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee G.M. Malenkov!”

As it becomes clear from these titles, according to a new tradition established by Stalin, the post of the President of the Council of Ministers of USSR was the most important positions in contemporary system of power, and that it was inherited by Malenkov. And although the decision from March the 5th 1953 of the joint meeting of the Plenum of the Central Committee, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet and the USSR Council of Ministers abolished the Bureau of the Presidium of the Central Committee of CPSU, and on the 14th of March 1953 the political opponents of Malenkov managed to deprive him of his post of a Secretary of the CPSU (ie, at the time, one of the many secretaries of the Central Committee), in 1953-55 he was still the Chairman of the USSR, and presiding over the meetings of the Presidium of the Central Committee of CPSU (as Politburo of the Central Committee of CPSU was called at the time). And thus, according to the then semi-official representations of the structure of power in the USSR, and, to an even greater extent, due to the political practice established under Stalin’s influence, he was the real leader of the country. It was during the period of his leadership of the country, that the transfer of the Crimean region into the Ukrainian SSR actually took place.

And if you take the viewpoint of those, who do not recognize that the decisions in the USSR were taken collectively, but absolutely want to assign personal responsibility for any decision to one of the “leaders”, then we must blame Malenkov, and not Khrushchev for the transfer of the Crimean region. By the beginning of 1954, when the Crimea was handed over, Khrushchev was not yet a sufficiently influential figure so as to define such major decisions. He was one of the secretaries of the Central Committee, responsible for the work of the entire Secretariat (on September the 7th 1953 he was elected 1st secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU), he was a member of the Presidium of the Central Committee, and was a member of a group, warring with the group of Malenkov. The very same Voslensky in his book indicates that Malenkov tried his best to belittle the role of the Central Committee Secretariat, and it was under him that they began to speak of the secretariat as of a purely technical body. Therefore, it is logical to assume that any significant initiatives emanating from Khrushchev, would not get the support of Malenkov.

If, however, we are be absolutely exact, then from a purely formal point of view, the transfer of Crimea was initiated by a collective body – the Presidium of the CPSU Central Committee, which meetings at that time were chaired by Malenkov. This can be seen from documents published in “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” (Federal Edition #3409 of the 19th of February 2004):

From the protocol N 49 of the Central Committee of the CPSU Presidium meeting on the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the RSFSR into the composition of the Ukrainian SSR
25th of January 1954
Presided by: G.M. Malenkov
Present:
Members of the Presidium of the Central Committee, comrades N.S. Khrushchev, K.E. Voroshilov, N.A. Bulganin, L.M. Kaganovich, A.L. Mikoyan, M.Z. Saburov, M.G. Pervukhin.
Candidates for members of the Presidium of the Central Committee, comrades N.M. Shvernik, P.K. Ponomarenko.
CPSU Central Committee secretaries, comrades M.A. Suslov, P.N. Pospelov, N.N. Shatalin.

XL About transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the RSFSR into the composition of the Ukrainian SSR
1. To approve as amended at the meeting, the attached draft of the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the RSFSR into the composition of the Ukrainian SSR.
2. To deem it appropriate to hold a special session of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of USSR, at which to consider a joint submission to the Bureau of the Supreme Soviets of the RSFSR and the Ukrainian SSR on the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the RSFSR into the composition of the Ukrainian SSR.

Secretary of the CPSU Khrushchev

However, having the real distribution of power in the USSR leadership elite in favour of the government agencies – as a testament from Stalin, outwardly the power system in the country continued working in a mode, familiar to the people, that is, in such a way, that the decisions of the Central Committee of the CPSU were governing in relation the decisions of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, which was only a “law publishing” body, which gave the appearance of democracy to decisions, which had actually been taken in the Central Committee. Thus, the Council of Ministers, headed by Malenkov, was sidelined on the decision of the Crimea. This decision was taken by the Presidium of the CPSU Central Committee, a meeting presided by Malenkov.

Again, from a purely formal point of view, N.S. Khruschev’s responsibility for this decision consisted only in the fact that he, like everyone else, voted “for” and in addition to this, as the 1st Secretary of the Central Committee heading the work of the Secretariat of the Central Committee, put his signature, just formally certifying the protocol. In the same way as in the Brezhnev period Giorgadze put his signature after Brezhnev’s signature. But analysis of the alignment of the centres of power in the power system of that time shows that the decision of the Presidium chaired by the economic planner Malenkov could be a bargaining chip (albeit a pretty small one) in the nomenclature and political struggle of his supporters with the group of Khrushchev – the highest at that time party functionary. In any case, with that set up, Malenkov was a guarantor that, as a result of this decision, there would be no major changes in the Crimea’s situation and, above all, in the nature of economic relations of the Crimean region within the control system of the USSR.

From the extract from the protocol N49, cited above, it is clear at the same meeting the draft of the Decree of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on the transfer of Crimea was approved, which after a multi-stage procedure, would in the end be “rubber-stamped” by the Supreme Council. The Supreme Soviet of the USSR rubber-stamped the decree draft at its meeting of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of February the 19th 1954. Here is the text of the decree:

The stenography of meeting can be consulted here. (Translator note: I will translate the closing speech of Voroshilov, which gives additional context to the political and cultural background, as well as assumed conditions, of the transfer.)

DECREE
Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR
On the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the RSFSR into the composition the Ukrainian SSR

“Given the commonality of the economy, the proximity and close economic and cultural ties between the Crimean region and the Ukrainian SSR, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics RESOLVES:

Approve the joint submission of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR and the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR on the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic into the composition of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.”

Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR K.VOROSHILOV
Secretary of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR N.PEGOV
Moscow, The Kremlin, February 19, 1954.

And already on the 26th of April 1954 the Supreme Soviet of the USSR by the Law “On the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of RSFSR in the composition of the Ukrainian SSR” approved the decree of its Presidium and made the appropriate changes to Articles 22 and 23 of the Constitution of the USSR.

Incidentally, we must note that the issue of transfer of the Crimea went in the agenda of the meeting of the Presidium of the CC CPSU as item XI or XL (it is not very clear from the publication of the document). In any case, this issue was not perceived as being particularly important. It is possible that this attitude has led to a certain constitutional legislative negligence in the design of the entire transfer procedure. The fact is, under Article 18 of the Constitution of USSR, which was in effect by 1954, the territory of a republic could not be altered without its consent. Such consent was given by both Republics in the form of a Ruling of the Presidium of the Supreme Councils of the two Republics. However, Article 33 of the Constitution of the RSFSR, which contained a list of the authorities given to the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet, there is no authority to change the boundaries of the RSFSR. Not to mention the fact that out of the 27 members of the meeting of the 5th of February 1954, during which the issue was addressed, only 15 were present.

Further considering the nature of the relationship of the then leadership of the USSR to the “Crimean issue”, one should also note the following. For example, in the relevant documents of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet it was claimed both wisely and pompously, “that the transfer of Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR, taking into account the commonality of their economies, the proximity and close economic and cultural ties, is fully appropriate and is a testament to the boundless trust of the Russian people in the Ukrainian people…” This is how the “Ukrainians” at the helm thought back then. At the same time, the event itself passed completely unnoticed. It was not widely presented by the official propaganda to the Soviet and foreign public as another triumph of the party reason and higher justice. Probably for this reason, the Western press said nothing about this. While in the Soviet publications one can only find a couple of paragraphs about the symbolic meaning of this act in the context of the 300th anniversary of the “reunification” of Ukraine and Russia. However, the celebrations that took place in late May 1954 were generally devoted only to the anniversary. And even in the festive speech of Khrushchev, not a word was said about the Crimea. The absence of any indication to the transfer of Crimea in the Soviet sources of the time leads to some extent to a probable assumption, that the leaders of the Soviet Union intended to create in the perception of the peoples of the Soviet Union the idea, that the presence of the Crimea as part of Ukraine was a self-evident fact, and the decision to transfer the peninsula was represented as something long-overdue and almost as correction of a certain historical misunderstanding. But it is also quite possible that there was a feeling of voluntary overeagerness, and that there was no complete confidence that the decision, taken completely privately and without extensive discussion between the peoples of the two largest of the Soviet republics, would not cause public rejection. (Translator’s note: It did, at the “kitchen talk” level, much of which I heard first-hand, while spending many a summer of my youth in Crimea.)

N.S. Khruschev made a considerable progress towards senior management position of the country only in 1955 as a result of the nomenclature struggle for the removal of Malenkov from power. In 1955, Malenkov was dismissed from the post of Chairman of the USSR, and on the 29th of June 1957 he was removed from the Presidium of the CC CPSU. It is not known when exactly he ceased to be “presiding” at the Presidium meeting, but most likely in the very same 1955.

Since that time, that is, from the time when N.S. Khruschev, as the 1st Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee and member of the Presidium of the Central Committee, began to gradually strengthen his position as the sole leader of the Communist Party, we can say that the party organs as a whole began to regain the lead in the country’s leadership. However, until 1958 the high status and independence of the state and economic apparatus inherited from the Stalinist era remained. Chairman of the USSR from 1955 to 1958 was N.A. Bulganin, who previously, just like Malenkov, was one of the Vice-Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers of Stalin. It was only in 1958 that Bulganin was dismissed, and his position was also taken by N.S. Khruschev while still holding the post of the First Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee. The defeat of the group of Bulganin, Malenkov, Kaganovich, Molotov and Shepilov occurred in June 1957 when at first during the meeting of the Presidium (Politburo) of the Central Committee of the CPSU by a majority vote, it was decided to abolish the post of the 1st Secretary of the CPSU and to appoint Khrushchev Minister of Agriculture, and then during an urgently convened plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, as a result of the dramatically unfolding events and with Zhukov’s help, Khrushchev managed to turn the situation to his advantage, and called Bulganin/Malenkov’s group for “anti-party”. Only after 1958 can N.S. Khurshev be held solely responsible for the supreme power decisions in the country. The Crimean region was transferred to Ukraine at the beginning of 1954, while the opinion about the deciding role that Khrushchev played in it, was formed only later with the help of the official propaganda.

Soviet newspapers, like mirrors, reflected the change in the ratio of different branches of power in the USSR. The newspaper “Pravda” of the 21st of December 1955 in its report on the national meeting of the top performers of agriculture in Tashkent, said: “spacious auditorium of the theatre named after Alisher Navoi was filled to capacity. 11 am. Loud and prolonged applause greeted the appearance at the meeting the Chairman of the presidium of the USSR Council of Ministers N. Bulganin and First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, N.S. Khrushchev. Places on the podium are occupied by the first secretary of Central Committee of the Communist Party: Uzbekistan – A.I. Niyazov, Kazakhstan – LI Brezhnev, Tajikistan – BG Gafurov, Chairman of the Council of Ministers: Uzbek SSR – N.A. Mukhitdinov, Tajik SSR – T. Uldzhabaev, Turkmen SSR – B. Ovezov, Kirghiz SSR – A. Suerkulov, Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Uzbek SSR Sh.R. Rashidov.” Here, the Chairman of the USSR Council is still mentioned in the first place, while the first secretary of the Communist Party – in the second, as a figure of lesser importance.

But already in 1960, at the height of Khrushchev’s personality cult, there is a dominating and familiar us from the days of Stagnation formula, where the Central Committee of the Communist Party is mentioned in the first place: “The workers of agriculture of the Penza region report to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Soviet Government and personally to Comrade N.S. Khrushchev that, realizing the historical decision of the XXI Congress of the CPSU, collective and state farms, overcoming the difficulties created in the current year due to adverse weather conditions, have grown a good harvest, and completed the plan to sell grain to the state ahead of schedule – on August the 9th – using 20 working days.” (“Pravda” of the 12th of August 1960).

There are some important considerations at the end of this brief historical sketch of this dramatic episode in the history of Russia. In that harsh time P.I. Titov became the forerunner of the modern Communist Party of the Russian Federation in that part of its activity, which is directed today to protect the all-Russian interests. It is a pity that his name have not become a symbol of the 23-year-long modern struggle for liberation of the Russian-speaking people of the Crimea against the Ukrinising occupants. In light of the events of the modern Russian history, that person is worthy of his memory being perpetuated at least by a commemorative plaque in Simferopol, and at least a mention of him in the future textbooks of the history of the Fatherland as a Russian citizen, who was not afraid to go against the voluntarist projects of omnipotent Russian Ukrainophile Khrushchev. The country and the people need to know their heroes, and not only the negative ones.


Below is a translation of the closing speech by K.E Voroshilov from the stenography of the session of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR from the 19th of February 1954. As the commentary note at the top of that site says, “The Communist regime held no referendum or any opinion poll among the Crimeans regarding their transfer into the Ukrainian SSR”. All highlighting in the translation is mine.

Comrades, the decision of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on the joint proposal of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet and the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR regarding the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic into the composition of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic is a testament to further strengthening of the unity and indestructible friendship of the Russian and Ukrainian peoples within the great powerful fraternal family of the peoples of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This significant act of great national importance once again confirms that the relationship between sovereign allied socialist republics in the USSR is based on genuine equality and a real understanding and respect for mutual interests, aimed at the prosperity of all of the Union republics.

In history, there is no – and can not be – other such relation between States. In the past, especially under capitalism, at the very root of relations between states there was an aspiration for territorial conquest, the pursuit of strong states profiteering at the expense of territories of weaker countries. Only within the conditions, created by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics may there be such a fair resolution of all issues between Union Republics, decisions based on economic feasibility and sensibility, full of mutual friendship and fraternal co-operation of their peoples. The transfer of the Crimean region of the RSFSR into the Ukrainian SSR is in the interest of the Russian and Ukrainian peoples, and meets the national interests of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The Crimean region, due to its historical development, due to its territorial and economic status, is important for the whole of the Soviet state. And in the distant and recent past enemies have repeatedly tried to take away the Crimean peninsula from Russia, use it to plunder and ruin Russian and Ukrainian lands, establish a base there for attacks on Russia and Ukraine. However the Russian and Ukrainian peoples had more than once, in their common struggle, severely beaten the arrogant invaders and thrown them out of the borders of Ukraine and Crimea. Ukraine and Crimea are closely linked by common economic interests – this has already been eloquently stated both by the presenters and by comrade speakers. Cultural relations between Crimea and Ukraine in particular have increased and deepened. The transfer of the Crimean region into the Ukrainian SSR will undoubtedly further strengthen the traditional ties.

Comrades, this friendly act takes place in the days when the Soviet people solemnly celebrate the remarkable historical date of the 300th anniversary of the reunification of Russia and Ukraine. This is a great traditional celebration not only of the Ukrainian people, but also for all the peoples of the USSR. Friendship of peoples – one of the foundations of our great multinational Soviet state, the source of its invincible might, of its prosperity and power. We know and rejoice that the Russian, Ukrainian and other peoples of our vast country, will also in the future continue to develop and strengthen their brotherly friendship. Let our great Motherland – the fraternal Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – develop and grow stronger!

Lada’s Post Scriptum

Soviet Gold Standard , Khrushchev’s folly and how Stalin’s death kicked off the process of weakening of the USSR

While the responsibility for the transfer of Crimea lies upon a number of people, it is Khrushchev who is remembered by history as the one responsible. The logic of the transfer on the surface was to re-confirm the close union of the two branches of one culture, one nation and one Russian World: Russians and Ukrainians. What after the formation of the USSR in 1922 came to be referred to as ‘Ukrainians’ was in fact a composite of Zaporozhie Cossacks (such as my mother’s family), Malorossians (central Ukraine, incl. Kiev), Novorossians (now eastern Ukraine, including Donbass, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov, aka, Slobozhanshchina), South Russians (Black Sea coast, including Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson), and later (western Ukraine’s) Rusins.

In the defense of those who made that decision it can be said that the transfer was made in the context of Ukraine being a forever integral part of the USSR, and an inseparable part of Russia. It never occurred to any of these men that in the year 1991 the USSR could simply fall apart.

However, the responsibility still lies with those who failed to take into account the future risks.

In the huge power vacuum that came to be after Stalin’s death, the power struggle between two factions began. Malenkov, who seems to be made responsible by the author of the article, was a clown — a transitional figure. No one really took him seriously and he didn’t wield real power. This was obviously before my time, but I recall my parents’ stories, who were in the know regarding the Soviet political spectrum. The transitional figure of Malenkov was necessary while the real power struggle took place behind the scenes. He was sidelined as soon as Ukrainian (Khrushchev’s) camp was able to get the upper hand over the Georgian (Beria’s) camp.

Beria/Georgian/Velikorussian (aka, ‘the Great Russian’) camp was against such transfer and in favor of Crimea being fortified as a part of Russia, as proposed by Titov in the article. Therefore, only the opposite Ukrainian camp could have pushed through the transfer. Consequently, Khrushchev’s role in the Crimean and other events of the early 1950s cannot be underestimated. It is, in fact, exactly as history remembers it!

To the possible reasons for Khrushchev’s behavior mentioned in the article, I want to add that he was rabidly anti-Stalin for more reasons than described. As the author says, he disliked the idea of having to lend Ukrainian workers for the war reconstruction efforts, and held a grudge regarding golodomor (which, per some evidence, he contributed to, never admitting his responsibility).

Yet, there were some infinitely more personal reasons for his resentment.

I am not inclined to bash Khrushchev to the degree as to completely discredit him. I think there were times he acted correctly, and if he lacked in real intelligence and foresight, he seemed to have enough peasant street smarts to get on top. That said, he appears to have been a man of jealousy and capable of holding a grudge for a long time. He also appears to have been a man whose personal demons often took the best of him, and who could sacrifice the interests of his country for his own whim. All the above are absolutely terrible qualities for a leader of a superpower. This is why Khrushchev failed to survive in his post for long (see video link below for more on that).

The story I was told is this: Khrushchev’s son had been arrested repeatedly for drunk driving and other public violations, but he was able to bury most of the criminal charges. But then, his son killed someone in a drunk driving incident, namely a war hero who just survived the brutal WWII. The indignation was wide-spread, the young man faced a long sentence and Khrushchev was unable to bury the case. He came to Stalin asking him for his son’s pardon. Stalin refused, saying he had to pay for his crime.

That incident set in motion a fatal chain of events. It set the stage for the angry and bitter Khrushchev’s later participation in the elimination of Stalin and creation of the world-wide anti-Stalin campaign, which in turn cost USSR valuable allies, such as Albania, with its Mediterranean ports, as well as China. (The best source for some good info related to Stalin, his actions, his death and Khrushchev’s role, in my view, is Nikolai Starikov and his book ‘Stalin.’)

In his urge to undo everything that reminded him of Stalin, Khrushchev also eliminated the one thing that kept USSR fully independent of the Western financial system: Soviet gold standard – the alternative system that made USSR impenetrable to financial manipulation. It was for this reason that when the inflation hit the West, in the USSR prices continued going down, while the country was actually experiencing tremendous post-war boom!

Khrushchev agreed to trade internationally in dollars, which destroyed the carefully built system and eventually weakened the USSR’s global bargaining positions, leading to future loss of reputation, clout and eventual disintegration. That act by Khrushchev, together with the Central Committee of the Communist Party, continued later by Brezhnev (perhaps because he was ill-advised, or because it was simply too late to turn back), set the stage for the relentless takeover of the world by the dollar, and later, petrodollar. When the USSR simply surrendered its positions, there was no financial alternative or counterweight left. The result is the grave global imbalance we are observing today.

Flashback! Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq One Year Before Invasion… and Thoughts

Flashback! Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq One Year Before Invasion

Not that it’s a shocking bit of news for anyone who is in the know (this certainly includes my readers), but it’s still noteworthy from the following standpoint: something that you and I have known for a long time is finally making its way into the Western mainstream media.

Imagine that! They are really, really slow (not to mention corrupt) – isn’t it why so many people are turning away from Western MSM? However, the very fact that this is coming to the spotlight in the mainstream is a good sign.

The truth will continue surfacing throughout this decade and next, and deliberately distorted history will slowly but surely continue being righted. Humanity needs to go through the cleansing and karmic re-balancing. There really isn’t any way around it; this is the only way for human civilization to shed its past and move forward.

~~~~~~

These are two reports from RT, truly the only trustworthy English-speaking MSM our there. RT is a new, revolutionary wave of the MSM. It is an alternative MSM for the truth-seekers and it also has Russian, Spanish, Arabic and other language news. (I have various RT links on my RESOURCES page for your convenience).

RT: News of leaked memos indicating that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had already agreed to work with the George W. Bush Administration on the invasion of Iraq long before it began has been less than a shock to many people. Stephen Zunes, a major critic of the Bush administration and professor of politics and international studies at the University of San Francisco, offers his view as to why public reaction has been so tepid and what the invasion was really about.

RT: Leaked memos show that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair was fully onboard with the George W. Bush administration with regard to the invasion of Iraq a full year before the war began. Manila Chan speaks with investigative journalist Russ Baker about the fallout from this leak and how policy leading to the invasion developed during the run up to the war.

~~~~~~~

So, it’s in the mainstream. The Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq took place at least one year before Iraq invasion – and I would say much earlier than that!

It was done with participation and full knowledge of then US Secretary of State, Gen. Colin Powell, who afterwords tried to convince the UN that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, while parading fake proofs and equally fake maps. Colin Powell later said he was duped and mislead into thinking the proof was real, which lead him to deliver that fake UN speech. With these new revelations, it is confirmed what was long-suspected: Powell lied to everyone’s face when he said he didn’t know proofs were fake. The scandal led him eventually to resign and withdraw his presidential candidacy, costing him his highly cherished reputation and removal from public life.

I was somewhat familiar with Colin Powell – in the late ’90s I happened to work in Princeton with some of his associates. Incidentally, one of his people, who spent six months in the former Yugoslavia as a monitor during the civil war and subsequent US/EU bombing campaign, had admitted to me in a private conversation that what he saw on the ground and what US press and US government were saying had been two completely different things.

At the time, all the blame for war and atrocities in the former Yugoslavia was put 100% on Serbs. ‘The bad Serbs’ propaganda was necessary for Yugoslavia, the last remaining independent state in Europe, to be torn apart in the attempt to weaken and destroy Serbia. Even the core Serbian lands, such as Kosovo and Chernogoria (called in the West Montenegro) were taken away from them.

The reality I witnessed, had confided in me Colin Powell’s associate, was that they all had historic grudges against each other. They all were equally responsible for violence.

I knew all this very well, having grown up in Southern Europe and in the Slavic world. The long-brewing, but kept under the lid by the unified socialistic Yugoslavia, historic grudges ran deep. I knew why, how and when all those grudges came to be. For centuries Russia periodically played peacemaker in the region. It was in many ways similar to the atmosphere in Caucasus and all this was common knowledge where I came from. But convincing Americans of this was impossible in the 1990s. When I tried to write articles explaining the real situation, they were ALL rejected by any American MSM I attempted sending them to.

Alas, there was no Internet, no blogs and no websites in the 1990s. We were all held hostage to whatever agenda and lies they wanted to impose on us. In the ’90s I quickly got disenchanted with Western papers, magazines and TV and unsubscribed of all print, disconnecting cable TV by 2003.

I can’t stress enough how incredibly important it is to always keep a balanced perspective on things! Ironically, we have to be grateful primarily to the same USA for the mainstream Internet, YouTube, search engines and blogging platforms, such as WordPress. The Internet revolution became the Great Equalizer of the 21 Century, which allowed us all to read/watch/search for the truth, regardless of where we lived and what propaganda our local MSM imposed on us.

This fantastic breakthrough allowed people like myself, who had a lot of knowledge and truth to share, but who were shut up by MSM and existing prejudices, a platform to say what we wanted to say.

This is where USA, UK, as well all of the Anglo-American world, shine:

They can accomplish wonders when it’s necessary to turn something into a mainstream application, making it workable for the huge masses of people. This is a real, honest to goodness talent and contribution of the Anglo-American civilization to the human world.

If only they could learn to stick to using this god-given talent for good, instead of evil!

Actually, I think the fact that Western MSM is now losing readership/viewership daily is a well-deserved poetic justice and the long-earned karma in action.

Unless Western MSM of all breeds and colorings reinvent themselves, they will become extinct. The only way for them to reinvent themselves is to start telling the truth. But who are we kidding: those who control them can’t accept the truth… yet. One day they may be forced to, in order to survive. But it may be too late for what at this point in history we still refer to as ‘Western MSM.’

Incidentally, the truth about what really went on in Yugoslavia never came out of Colin Powell’s camp, despite their knowledge. Powell was at the time considered a war hero and a highly respected man of integrity. He had the people’s ear and he had infinitely more platform to make the truth heard than I did. It’s possible that if he shared with the world what his monitors knew about Yugoslavia, Serbian bombings wouldn’t have happened. Or at least, it would have been much more difficult to push them through without full public support.

That same ‘honorable’ Colin Powell saw it fit to spew lies to the UN later, when he became the US Secretary of State. For those who still have any illusions: this demonstrates very well who is in power in the US, no matter what party it is. It was true then and it’s true now. The same is true for the UK, with Blair in focus.

In the beginning of 2003 Colin Powell shook that fake proof at the UN and ardently tried to convince everyone that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that Iraq harbored Al Qaeda. Living in the US, I heard a lot of talk calling ‘to fu*k those UN, Russia, China and Germany’ (does that remind you of Nuland and her “fu*k EU outburst?). As a lot of those ‘American patriots’ put it, ‘let our boys go in and do their thing.’

The truth is that the US population at large fully supported Iraq invasion, considering their country exceptional, one and only beacon of democracy, and existing to do as they pleased without any regard for others’ needs or opinions. Hitler and his version of Germany once thought the same.

I recall that time very well – it was the time I woke up completely and shed any remaining illusions as to what kind of country I was living in. US continued attempting to sell Afghanistan and Iraq invasions as ‘one bundle purchase,’ using the pretext of the 9/11 as justification.

The world swallowed the earlier Afghanistan invasion, being still in shock after 9/11. People all over the world sympathised with the US, and this normal human sympathy in the wake of what was believed to be a terrible and unjustified tragedy inflicted by outside forces on the unsuspecting America, was exploited by the US to do their dirty bidding.

But the world drew the line at Iraq. UN Security Council members Russia and China vetoed US request to authorize its strike against Iraq. US faced strong resistance from allies: Germany, France and Middle Eastern countries. US began Iraq invasion anyway, fully supported by UK, Poland, (former Soviet republic of) Georgia and the ‘coalition of the willing’ consisting of everyone else whose arm US/UK were able to twist into submission.

We soon started finding out that Powell’s ‘proofs’ were fake, that 9/11 was an inside job and that US/UK harbored a long-term plan of invading and dismembering at least seven Middle Eastern states, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran and Syria. We all know what happened to Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. We also know why Iran and Syria are still surviving: because Russia has protected them.

There is always a seed of defeat in every victory and a seed of victory in every defeat. US thought it got away with murder.

But the US invasion of Iraq and the lies accompanying it, marked the beginning of a new era. It is the era of the all-encompassing Earth Shift of all geopolitical, societal and economic structures. It is the era of the awakening and coming to terms with the truth. Their lies woke up those people who refused to continue accepting the official Western propaganga, who began digging for and telling the truth through alternative sources, trying to awaken others.

This era, which we are living today, is the global revolutionary time, when everything old, outmoded, and un-truthful is swept away. The old will morph into something new and different, some countries will change borders and even names. New alliances will be formed and old will die off. A new social, financial and economic system will emerge. And with that, USA will lose much of today’s clout and power.
