Heil Poroshenko! Ukraine junta bans Russian SM, prepares to ban Russian Orthodox Church

porosh-nazi

A lot is happening in Ukraine, as Kiev junta continue beating record after record in schizophrenia and fascist extremism.

Today the Kiev Rada is supposed to pass the new law, which effectively outlaws the traditional Russian Pravoslavnaya (Orthodox) Church, Moscow Patriarchy. The majority of Ukrainians belong to this church — one of the main and most influential branches of the global Christianity.

The breakaway branch of the ‘Ukrainian Church’ is unrecognized by any other religious organization in the world. Yet, it is to this outcast church that the Kiev junta is preparing to pass all the churches belonging to the Russian Pravoslavnaya Church on the territory of Ukraine.

This includes up to 14,000 parishes with church buildings, plus hundreds of monasteries and tens of thousands of church properties all over Ukraine. Each parish owns precious religious relics, icons and other highly valuable items, many in gold and silver. Among important relics is the Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra, one of the main monasteries and historic treasures of the Russian Pravoslavnaya Church, a UNESCO World Heritage site. See image below:

Kievo-Pecherskaya-Lavra_Aerial-view

We are talking billions and billions of dollars worth of real estate, art and valuables. Therefore, it is clear that this new proposed law has nothing to do with religion or ‘sovereignty.’

This is a highway robbery and a mafia takeover of the single richest piece of the shrinking pie left in Ukraine. The ukro-nazi junta in charge doesn’t know who else to rob and whose else blood to drink.

And caught in the crossfire are… millions and millions of poor, simple Ukrainian citizens, who have nowhere to run and whose rights, ancestry, history, and very lives are being systematically destroyed.

I am always unpleasantly surprised by how screwed up and Russophobic the Western understanding of the situation in Russia and Ukraine is. I generally think that my readers at large are much more educated than most in the West, therefore, I don’t think they need this explanation. However, for those who have wondered into this page by accident, I’ll tell you what the Russian Pravoslavnaya (Orthodox) Church means for the territory we today call Ukraine.

Ukraine junta is now very actively promoting their false parallel reality to convince the West of the non-existent ‘Russian oppression.’ In this parallel reality Kiev ukro-nazis, aided by Soros, Canadian and American ukro-nazi Banderovtsi, Poland and Germany, contend that Russian Orthodox Church was imposed on Ukraine by ‘evil’ Russian Empire. Of course, the Western ignorant sheeple eat this up — afer all, it is in line with what their media tells them about Russia.

In reality,  the Russian Orthodox Church was born in Kiev, Malorossia, well over 1000 years ago. From thereon this religion spread throughout the territory of the Great Russia. At the time — for a short while — the capital of Rus (aka, Russia) was in Kiev. Before Kiev, the capitals were Novgorod, Arkona (now located in Germany), and other cities. Later, the main capital of the Rus State would be moved more than once. There was even a period when the capital was in Lvov, today’s western Ukraine or Galitsia. In 19th century, so not to confuse that period with others, it began being referred to as ‘Kievan Rus.’ The Lvov period was identified as ‘Galitskaya Rus.’

I’ll leave aside the fact that many think it was a grave mistake for Rus to adopt Christianity to replace the Vedic Pravoslavie. I have my own view of this event: at the time this could not be avoided. The Vedic World’s (Vedicheskiy mir) spiritual lifestyle system resonated with the 5th dimension (5D). When people’s consciousness fell below 5D — to 4D and then to 3D — they stopped resonating with the high level spirituality.

As a result, the change took place, and for better or for worse, Russian Christian Church has been for hundreds of years the main unifying religion of the Russian Empire. The Russian Pravoslavnaya Church, incorrectly referred to in the West as ‘Russian Orthodox Church,’ has always been historically dominant in Ukraine, despite various attempts to convert western Ukraine into Catholicism.

VIDEO:  Thousands of Russian Pravoslavnaya Church believers gather before Kiev Rada to pray for god to send some reason and common sense to the Rada deputies. The video is very telling. Alas, they are praying for reason and common sense where there can be none.

People are praying and singing peacefully in the video, but there are persistent warnings of an upcoming religious war in Ukraine, should this law be passed and should the forceful takeovers of Russian churches continue.

BAN OF VK AND OTHER RUSSIAN SOCIAL MEDIA & INTERNET COMPANIES

Poroshenko and the junta have banned Russian SM, including Vkontakte, Odnoclassniki, email service Mail.ru and search engine Yandex. Sanctioned and banned are also the leading Russian business accounting software company (whose name I don’t recall) and the leading internet security company Kaspersky Lab. All of the above are dominant in Ukraine. Millions of Ukrainians use Yandex and Russian SM. VK is used several times more frequently than Facebook. Yandex is used much more than Google. The Russian accounting software company’s products are used by the majority of Ukraine’s businesses, some of whom have filed a lawsuit against Poroshenko and his government for damages.

You may ask why do Russian companies dominate Ukraine’s Internet market? Very simple, Russian companies have a major advantage over Google and Facebook: they are in Russian. No matter how much Ukro-nazis and junta try to eliminate Russian language in Ukraine, according to various polls, about 80% of Ukraine denizens continue speaking Russian.

ukro-nazis kiev fascists

Hitler and German fascists once burned books — Poroshenko and Ukraine fascists ban the internet. The ban of VK, Mail.ru and other Russian SM means that millions of Ukrainian users will suddenly lose contact with friends and family outside Ukraine. Will people again eat up this new gross violation of their rights, or will they finally rebel?

Qui bono? The non-sensical bans on Russian internet companies and products makes me think that it is done to clear up the room for others. Facebook instead of VK; much more expensive and incompatible American or European security and accounting software instead of Russian, etc. We’ll soon see whom Poroshenko and junta push to the top.

But even this isn’t all. On May 9, 2017, we have seen ample proof how Kiev and Ukraine citizens in general really feel about Russia, USSR and victory in WWII. One of the symbols of the Great Victory is Georgievskaya Lentochka (a red and gold band of St. George). 600,000 people came out on May 9 all over Ukraine (some believe it was up to one million). 60,000 came out in Kiev alone. In an act of definance, some of them carried Georgievskaya Lentochkas, despite threats. Following such a showing, Rada and Poroshenko have just passed the new law banning Georgievskaya Lentochka, along with other Soviet and Russian symbolism. About what went on Victory Day.

Even The Human Rights Watch came out and said that banning Soviet symbolism in Ukraine violates human rights and is undemocratic.

den pobedy3

The timing and utter stupidity of all these simultaneous bans makes one think that Poroshenko and the junta are trying to divert the public attention from something else. Several things are being named. Among these:

1. The IMF Chief is about to visit Ukraine, and it’s looking bad. Ukraine is staring the default in the eye. Ukraine must come up with at least $6 billion to service its debt this year. It will be more every year after. This kind of money is nowhere to be found.

2. Energy shortages made authorities announce that they would be disconnecting hot water for months, possibly for years, in some key cities, such as Odessa, causing massive discontent. Who needs hot water in the winter, right?

3. Major Ukrainian companies continue going under, major factories and power stations shut down daily, leaving tens of thousands jobless. Depopulation and increasing death rate are very real dangers. Ukraine now tops world lists for corruption, unhappiness and death rates.

4. But the most important reason is this: Poroshenko and his Rada quietly passed the new law allowing the sale of agricultural lands, which was banned under previous administrations. This is expected to generate a frenzy of secret foreign buying via proxies. Monsanto has been licking its lips over the fertile Ukrainian lands for years. One day Ukrainians may wake up to find they’ve lost the last valuable thing they had left – their land. The news caused an uproar, but public attention was quickly diverted via the aforementioned Russian bans.

The victimized people of Ukraine have become hostages of the lunatics and Bandera-Nazis in power, whose only interest is to sell off their country, along with the people, to foreign interests.

In conclusion, I have to again emphasize that the collective West and its ‘leaders’ supported, enabled and financed the Kiev Maidan, and they continue supporting this Kiev junta, no matter what kind of atrocities and violations it commits. Therefore, the collective West and its ‘leaders,’ bear direct responsibility for the severe violations of human rights in Ukraine; they bear full responsibility for the suffering of the people of Ukraine.

How Earth Shift Report Was Born + 2015 Bestseller List

The Earth Shift Report (ESR) idea began when the first two FREE ESRs were released in 2014. It quickly became clear that Earth Shift Reports didn’t fit into the usual FuturisTrendcast format, going far beyond any of my usual articles in scope, idea and size. They were simply too big and too involved for the blog. Each report was more on par with the scope and feel of a book, simultaneously being much more current than any usual book could possibly be.

This is understandable – any published book often requires years to get published. I didn’t have this luxury: my reports had to be substantially more relevant to the fast-evolving global situations, which were the target of my writing.

It was clear that getting bogged down for years in order to release books on these important subjects would defeat the immediate urgency of what needed to be said – and heard – now. Therefore, I needed something that would combine the scope, depth and versatility of a book with a speedy, easy to read, delivery of an article.

How could I make it happen?

This dilemma was solved and Earth Shift Report idea was born. The challenge was to distill the subject worthy of a full book into a relatively compact format, while keeping it jam-packed with timely, entertaining and fresh info. Completing this amount of work within a small window of time was also a challenge, considering there are lots of other balls to juggle and only 24 hours in a day.

On average an Earth Shift Report would be anywhere between 25 (on the small side) and 70 print pages (the longest so far). While reports are normally written, the most unusual one so far is the Video ESR4: Alien Technology & New Russian Weapons. It consists of my opening article and the 45 min. video with my subtitled translation. The information I came across was so interesting and important that I felt compelled to share it. I don’t intend to make a habit out of it, but should I come across more earth-shattering videos of this magnitude, I may do other video ESRs in the future.

The usual structure of an ESR is this: It normally includes my most important intel, analysis, predictions and historic references, where appropriate – all this shining the light on our past, present and future in order to form a full picture on the subject at hand. In addition, each report may include supporting illustrations, maps, pics and/or videos with translations and explanations.

Because of the sheer amount of work, knowledge and effort that went into each report, it became impossible to continue releasing them for free. It was decided to make them donation based to ensure the continuing release of future ESRs, as well as in support of free content on FuturisTrendcast and Lada Ray YT Channel. The most equitable thing to do seemed to let readers decide how much they wanted and were able to contribute to the reports. Thus, the ESR donation system was born. We like it and hope it continues working well.

At this point, I believe it’s a well-working system as ESRs get released whenever they are ready and readers donate as much as they can per report. After some discussion we resolved not to make it into a regular ESR subscription. The idea is to release each report when the timing and energy are right – not at any regularly predetermined intervals of time. We may at some point in the future reconsider and make ESRs subscription-based. There are plusses and minuses to both options, but for now we like our way best. Should the change happen, we’ll let you all know. (You can still opt for a regular recurring donation to support our free content on FT – read more here.)

For those who’ve asked whether I have plans to release any of the reports as books: yes, I do – some time in the future.

But not yet. My immediate plans are to continue writing and doing videos, covering crucial events and topics in the form that quickly finds a reader’s eye and a listener’s ear. I have too many ESRs and articles in the pipeline in order to take any time off. Releasing a book is a huge undertaking, requiring one to put on hold everything else. Neither I, nor my readers, can afford it at the moment.

In fact, I foresee that in 2016 and beyond my FuturisTrendcast articles and ESRs will be in an ever so increasing demand. There are also new plans for videos on Lada Ray Channel. I also plan to expand to online workshops. Finally, I have many ideas for the upcoming Earth Shift Reports that need to be brought to fruition in 2016. My year ahead has already been all planned out.

The intensity of the ongoing Earth Shift around us is not showing any signs of abating. Moreover, it is my prediction that it will continue intensifying. In such reality, no long hiatus is possible. I foresee an explosion in demand for my timely articles, workshops, videos, and especially, ESRs. All this will be very much needed by those who are awake or awakening, and for those who really do want to know the truth.

2014 Earth Shift Reports

In 2014 the following reports were released:

ESR1: Is Putin Part of NWO? In it I dispelled some persistently circulating myths about Putin and the alleged new NWO capital, Astana, KZ.

What do you know! I had easily proved with simple logic and factual knowledge that neither was possible. I also demonstrated how and why such hoaxes were spread through alterantive media and who really benefitted by them. Just after I had published this first version of the report, miraculously, the rumors of Putin being NWO pointman and Astana being the future NWO headquarters died down. It’s amazing how logic and knowledge can bring the light into the darkest places, and how they can stop those whose job is to prey on people’s ignorance and deepest fears.

The original version of ESR1 has been reloaded in 2015 with new and updated info on Kazakhstan and its president Nazarbayev. Now the report also includes intel and analysis of the ‘world’s quietest’ elections, along with the games skillfully played by Belarus’ sly fox Lukashenko.

This reloaded report is a juicy round-up of the psychological nature and geopolitical realities of the Eurasian Union’s triple backbone: Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. After reading this report, even those who know nothing about that part of the world, will be able to intelligently navigate a sea of lies and tiny shreds of truth floating around the MSM and cyberspace.

ESR1 reloaded: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? Is Astana, KZ New NWO Capital? (Bonus: Lukashenko’s Bluff) can be read any time on LadaRay.info.

ESR 1reloaded PUTIN ASTANA NWO

ESR2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY also came out in 2014. The first, free version of this report can still be read on FT. I plan on reloading this report with bonuses, my original and new predictions about Ukraine, Russia, EU and USA, as well as with newest explosive intel. The plan is to time the ESR2 reload close to the second anniversary of the February 2014 Kiev coup. We will re-assess what happened in the two years of the Kiev junta being in power and where the country is going from here. The reloaded version will be designed to serve as a one-stop easy-access reference to my two years+ worth of work on Ukraine. It will also expand on predictions and provide guidance as to what to expect in the next two years in this geopolitically charged region.

This is the preliminary banner for ESR2 reloaded: UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE.

ESR2 reloaded Ukraine 2

It is clear by now that my predictions on Ukraine are coming true, and more is to come. The country’s economy, sadly but unavoidably, is on its way to a complete destruction. Internationally recognized sovereign default is to take place on December 30, 2015, after it becomes clear that Ukraine has defaulted on its sovereign debt to Russia.

Pull up your chairs and get your popcorn (or Russian semechki)! The next show we’ll be watching will determine whether IMF will risk destroying the existing global financial system by disregarding its own rule of no lending to countries in default. This would unavoidably create a massive global domino effect with lenders refusing to lend and dead-beat countries/companies refusing to re-pay their debt.

In truth, it’s not a bad idea. The sooner this rotten to the core and inequitable global financial system is compromised, the faster we can start building a new and better one.

But my bet is that US ad EU will try for a time to prop up Ukraine through secret money and goods transfusions, rather than advertizing to the rest of the world that they have broken their own ‘cherished’ lending rules. This will buy some time – but not too much of it. In 2016 we will begin witnessing my original prediction materializing: Ukraine will start making a sharp turn-around from the West towards Russia, predicted for the period between 2016 and 2018.

Ukraine is in a difficult, bordering on catastrophic, energy crisis of its own making. The situation with gas supplies is dire and it’s not clear how Ukraine will get through this winter. If it gets through this one (likely with prop-ups by US, EU and Russia), it certainly can’t survive the following winter, and the next after it – unless Ukraine’s policies change, and without Russia’s help.

Electric grid is suffering outages and dangerous overloads after Ukraine’s attempt to collapse the Crimean electric grid. Considering Ukraine, Russia and Crimea grids are essentially one, Crimea shutting off the Ukraine side in response, spells disaster for some regions of Kherson Oblast. It also creates overloads at Ukraine and Europe’s largest Zaporozhie Nuclear Station, forcing shut-down of certain blocks. And I don’t have to tell you how dangerous this is – remember Chernobyl!

The situation with coal is equally bad and the economy in general is dying. As of January 1, Russia (plus Belarus and Kazakhstan) will discontinue much of the remaining exports from Ukraine, revoking Ukraine’s free trade status. This is in response to Ukraine opening free trade zone with EU, which would endanger Russian and Eurasian Union’s economy. It’s clear that this new silly step on Ukraine’s part will destroy what’s left of its industry and agriculture.

Two of the top Ukraine oligarchs, Taruta and Firtash, have come out with their dire forecast. According to them, Ukraine has anywhere between 4 and 8 months until a complete collapse. Ukraine oligarchs, including Poroshenko and Kolomoysky, are desperately looking for places to hide their money. Poroshenko, reportedly, is removing his liquid assets offshore as fast as he can.

I will touch upon all this and more in the two new ESRs:

CRIMEAN AGENDA and BLACK SEA GAMBIT 

Expected release for both: throughout January 2016.

The next report I released was ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS. While it concentrated on the wars between Ukraine oligarchs, most notably, Kolomoysky and Poroshenko aided and arbited personally by the US Ambassador to Ukraine Pyatt, we also delved into the psychology and mentality of all Ukraine oligarchs, as well as the populace in general. We revealed the fascinating reasons former Soviet republics were jealous and angry at Russia after the breakup of the USSR. We also revealed the usurious mentality of entitlement that led to the sad status quo in Ukraine. Finally, we discussed a very important issue that few understand: how Putin dealt with Russian oligarchs and how he managed to turn Russia around from the supreme mess of the 1990s, without breaking anything in the process. All this and more in OLIGARCH WARS!

ESR 3 OLIGARCH WARS 3

This brings us to reports released in 2015!

2015 ESR BESTSELLER LIST

No. 1

Within 2 weeks of its release, and by a very narrow margin, the latest ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM has quickly overtaken our long-time bestseller Video ESR4, for the Number 1 Annual Bestseller spot! You can read all about this report, including reviews, here on FT: Earth Shift Report 7: The Battle for Eurasia! TURKISH CONUNDRUM. (I am thinking how to best organize the ESR reviews. Next year, I may start a designated ESR Reviews page either on FT or on LadaRay.info.)

Turkey conundrum 2

No. 2

For a while I thought no other report in 2015 could beat the popularity of Special Video ESR4: ALIEN TECHNOLOGY & NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS – until ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM came out.

However, ESR4 is a very close second! The interest to this explosive and revealing video report has been very strong from the start, and continues being so. Video ESR4 promises to be a long-term bestseller!

ALIEN TECHNOLOGY AND NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS 2

No. 3

ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER was a very strong performer immediately after release and for the month to follow. A little birdie told me that this report became popular among, and was read by, top American politicians, including some presidential candidates! We won’t reveal the names here, nor our sources.

Same is true for ESR7.

ESR5 Syria Game Changer 2

No. 4

ESR6: UKRAINE – NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?

Legend has it that once there was Khazarian Khaganate that occupied parts of today’s Ukraine and Crimea, extending at one point all the way to the Volga River. It is said that some time around 8-9th century AD, Khazarian Khaganate accepted Judaism as its religion. This menace of a terrorist state made a living by robbing neighbors, selling slaves and taking tribute from the rich lands of Kievan Rus and other Russian cities. This resulted in it greatly expanding its territory and wealth. But Khazaria’s good fortune didn’t last as the ruler of Kievan Rus Veshchiy Oleg gathered troops and destroyed Khazaria so decisively that not a trace of its capital could be found, no matter how much archeologists looked.

Are there secret forces who are trying to revive Khazarian Khaganate in today’s Ukraine? Who are these forces and can they achieve their hidden goals?

ESR6 has taken the longest to write; it is the most complex and deepest of the lot, so far. It delves into forbidden history and linguistics, mythology and lore, today’s realities of the Jews, Cossacks, Ukrainians, Russians, and more. It goes on to reveal today’s clandestine plans and seemingly conflicting interests that strangely coincide within the geopolitical faultline of Ukraine.

The collusion of the strangest bedfellows that are rogue ukro-nazis, Ukraine’s Jewish oligarchs/ politicians, Zionist Chabad and US government are brought to light here. Old and new hoaxes are revealed. It is geopolitics and economics steeped in mysticism and forbidden truths.

These realities are in fact a reflection of today’s Earth Shift battle for the biggest of prizes. This prize isn’t Ukraine – merely a convenient tool. The one and only prize is Russia.

Read it any time, when you get a spare moment or two. ESR6 isn’t necessarily a hot commodity – it is timeless!

ISIL financed from 40 countries, including G20 members – Putin

President Vladimir Putin says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.

Putin talks anti-ISIL cooperation with the West and relations with Turkey.

When talking about previous G20 2014 summit in Austalia I think Putin was exceedingly gracious when he said that the event was organized well and it was conducive of work, adding that he left early because he needed to beat the departure lines.

The reality was of course a little different, when ex-PM of Australia Tony Abbott snubbed Putin and announced ahead of the event that he would ‘frontshirt him’ – Australian slang for tackling him and beating him up. On a group photo from the preceding summit Abbott appeared to have been glaring like a shark at Putin, undoubtedly preparing to devour him. Similar behavior was displayed by Canada’s ex-PM Stephen Harper. We have already discussed on FT the reasons Harper was ousted, one of the biggest of them being his dissatisfactory foreign policy.

But in Australia it was much more hush-hush. In mid-September 2015 Abbott was quietly ousted by the internal coup led by Malcolm Turnbull, both as Prime Minister and leader of Liberal Party. Abbott, born in the UK to British father and Australian mother has seen the image and popularity of his party deteriorate in the past year, co-incidentally, right after he showed himself as an un-welcoming and un-gracious host at G20 2014. Abbott was also known among other things, for his anti-women remarks. It has been recognized that Abbott’s policies were a total failure. It remains to be seen what we can expect from Turnbull, but surely, it can’t get any worse than Abbott.

You may think this is a co-incidence, but there aren’t casual co-incidences in this world. The line-up of those who are losing their credibility, popularity and grip on power right after their attempt to snub Russia or Putin is quite representative. Canada’s Harper, Australia’s Abbott; look what’s happening to Obama and his ratings – he is becoming irrelevant very quickly; Merkel lost a huge amount of popularity and went from the completely respected leader of Germany to the one regarded with suspicion in her own country. Just food for thought…

Putin also talked about conflict in Donbass, Ukraine’s impending bankruptcy covered up by the West, and the fact that Russia is agreeing to restructure Ukraine’s debt, but will need West’s guarantees.

US, Russia and Oil Price Manipulation: The Real Reason OPEC President Was Arrested in London

OPEC President Diezani Alison-Madeuke was arrested in London on corruption charges, along with four others. She has been wanted on corruption charges in her own country Nigeria, where she used to be petroleum minister. After her ‘patron,’ former president of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan, lost to the incumbent president, the new government pledged to crack down on widespread corruption in local petroleum industry. However, despite charges against her, she was still elected OPEC President.

Diezani Alison-Madeuke was let out on bail after her detention and reportedly has stayed under house arrest. Meanwhile, in a sign that the arrest had been coordinated with Nigerian authorities, the financial crimes unit sealed one of Alison-Madueke’s houses in the upmarket Asokoro district in the capital Abuja, two security officials said.

Links to related articles:  Reuters   TelesurTV

There are several things that immediately come to mind in relation with this incident:

There is no doubt in my mind that there is rampant corruption in Nigeria’s oil industry, where few oligarchs control the entire flow of wealth of this most populous African country. There is no doubt in my mind that Alison-Madueke was the point person who executed that control. She represents one of the African oil clans with close Middle Eastern (most likely, Saudi) ties.

However, who really are the judges? The new president of Nigeria is promising to fight corruption – and no doubt that’s why he’s been elected. People crave change and ready to give the chance to anyone who promises it. I do sincerely hope this is the case. But it looks more like the fight between two different oil and political oligarchic clans to me, supported and directed by the US/UK.

This is akin to what’s happening in Ukraine. The most powerful clans of Kolomoysky and Poroshenko continue fighting for the shrinking pie of assets and profits, as we discussed in OLIGARCH WARS, but the invisible hand of their trans-Atlantic puppeteers is always present. ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS is just as timely today as it was when I first released it. What’s happening in Ukraine is a blueprint for understanding what’s happening worldwide, including in those countries where civil society and the rule of law is especially weak.

The most important thing overlooked by many in this scandal is this: Diezani Alison-Madeuke was worried about low oil prices and was planning on calling an emergency meeting to discuss the OPEC strategy change. All this noise about fighting corruption is designed to camouflage something a lot more important: someone wants to pressure OPEC into keeping oil prices low. Who would that be? Check out where she was arrested – in London. I guess that’s because she didn’t go to the US. Otherwise, it would have happened in Four Seasons, or another New York hotel.

Remember ex-IMF President Dominique Strauss-Kahn and allegations that he sexually assaulted a black employee of a New York hotel. France had quickly joined in with more similar allegations. Later, these charges were either dropped or un-proven, but Strauss-Kahn lost his position and much of his reputation. Shortly before the allegations, he had announced his bid for French presidency, which he subsequently had to withdraw.

Of course, the President of the International Monetary Fund, and French to boot, was so desperate that he had to pursue a 40+ year-old hotel maid of questionable looks. Of course, he had absolutely no access to anyone better.

Besides, just imagine how comical those additional prudish allegations of sexual misconduct sounded coming from the French! The French would rather approve than disapprove of such things, or they would just shrug their shoulders: that’s his personal life.

But whose public would believe and ardently support such allegations? That would be the puritanic American public. Therefore, who wrote the whole script for the framing of Dominique Strauss-Kahn? That would the US, operating on the understanding of how it should be done from their perspective.

This had a ‘hoax’ and ‘set-up’ written all over it from the start. Corruption notwithstanding, the same is true for Diezani Alison-Madeuke. Same script authors, whom we may call Anglo-American elites.

It appears Alison-Madeuke represents the OPEC oligarchic clan that attempts to distance itself from the US influence, timidly rebelling against the US and conducting a somewhat more independent policy.

Such arrests serve as a reminder who is the boss. The message is not so much for the person being arrested, but for others: fall in line or you are next. These people all have lots of skeletons in their closets. These skeletons are being kept under wraps, if they behave. The moment they get out of line, the fall guy is chosen and the message to the rest is sent.

The story with the FIFA scandal and the suspension of its powerful long-time president Joseph “Sepp” Blatter is another in the long line of such examples. Angela Merkel has been balancing on the verge and she has been sent multiple messages ‘to toe the line’ since the beginning of Ukraine crisis and anti-Russian sanctions. Same applies to many others.

The world leaders are being treated here like little misbehaved children, who must be spanked into submission once in a while. It’s scary how little power these so-called leaders really have.

About the ‘free’ market hoax and how the oil prices are formed

Let me first say that as an ex-financial consultant with Smith Barney, I can tell you that the self-regulating free market is total BS and a hoax of millennial proportions! It is designed by those who pull the strings to swindle the rest of us. Moreover, in the era of rampant derivatives, it’s not possible whatsoever for the exchanges to perform their primary fiduciary market-making function (ie, setting up and maintaining orderly and fair pricing).

We were taught by the Western ‘free market gurus’ that the global market would self-regulate and fair prices would adjust themselves based on supply and demand. This would mean that a few years ago, when oil reached $148, the demand was three times what it’s today, when oil is below $50. Of course this is not the case and the demand for oil is about the same. The economic factors influencing the oil price initially may have been: Chinese economy slowing down slightly and ISIL dumping oil at low prices. Both factors are relatively negligible and couldn’t have worked for long. The way the market usually works, both have already exhausted their depressive potential.

Conclusion? Someone is manipulating the market and holding oil prices down artificially.

Who and why would do that? OPEC countries are already suffering from low oil prices. For Russia it’s a big problem. Incidentally, on one hand it’s also a problem for the US. American shale oil industry, which uses the expensive and terribly harmful to the environment fracking to extract oil or gas, can’t operate at such low prices and has to stop producing – the only positive that has come out of it.

But US government is ready to sacrifice fracking oil profit for political and geopolitical gain. After all, for as long as US/UK control the entire global economic and financial system, even oil profits are small change.

As far as US internal politics go:

Protests against fracking are on the rise in the US, therefore, conserving the shale oil sites is politically good for Obama and democrats. Secondly, they are intent on keeping gasoline prices low at the pump in pre-election year, in an attempt to bribe voters.

This brings us to the main geopolitical reason!

It’s Russia and Putin. When the oil price drop began last year, it was complex. Part of it was the desire of Saudis and OPEC to stop the new rival: the fast expansion of the American shale oil industry. Another factor was ISIL oil dumping. Of course, Chinese economy slowdown and market speculation contributed to that. Initially, hurting the Russian economy was a side effect and a pleasant bonus for countries like Saudi Arabia, UK and US.

It was supposed to be a temporary operation. OPEC has exhausted its resources and the minds of some of its members have changed. Many OPEC countries now operate at a loss and start experiencing huge budget gaps. Some have had enough and they can’t wait to start stimulating oil prices.

However, sometime during this oil gambit the initiative was overtaken by the US/UK. At one point it became apparent how well it could work to hurt the Russian economy. Therefore, USA resolved to keep oil prices down for as long as possible, pressuring OPEC into doing so by all means necessary.

The initial sabotage idea against the Russian economy (it began with Kiev maidan and 2/2014 coup) looked like this:

  1. Overstretching of Russian finances and economy by making Russia send troops to Ukraine, subsequently having to support the destroyed Ukraine.
  2. Creating the image of Russia as an evil dictatorship, headed by evil Putin, resulting in global isolation and subsequent disintegration.
  3. Simultaneously, crippling the Russian economy and squeezing Russian financial system, closely integrated into the Western financial network via: anti-Russian sanctions; attempted denial of Visa/MC; disconnection from SWIFT; and most importantly, the attack on the Ruble, resulting in its precipitous drop. All this was designed to squeeze Russian business class, bury Eurasian Union, isolate Russia from any allies, and ultimately, make the population hate Putin.

The only thing that did work out in this comprehensive plan was turning Ukraine into a total mess. The rest failed completely.

1. Russia didn’t send troops to Ukraine, as predicted.

2. Anti-Russian sanctions made Europeans distrust US, rather than Russia; Visa/MC/SWIFT sabotage failed.

3. Eurasian Union is experiencing certain color revolution and economic risks, as I had warned since 2014. But despite the risks, it’s still expanding.

4. While the Ruble drop was hurtful, the Russian economy has re-adjusted. The problems created stimuli for the sorely needed import substitution and building up of Russia’s independent from the West financial and economic system – also, as predicted.

5. While Russia is supporting LNR and DNR (only 2 mln people left), plus millions of refugees from Ukraine, these millions of refugees and Ukraine immigrants do contribute to the Russian economy by working. Meanwhile, US and EU have to support the entire 30-35 million still residing in Ukraine, including paying Gazprom for Ukraine’s gas and providing IMF loans – and this was never part of the plan.

6. Instead of isolation, Russia has been growing her ally and supporter base worldwide.

7. Instead of people hating Putin, his rating continues climbing, both in Russia and abroad. The latest: Putin’s rating surpassed 90% – the highest ever. Out of those 10% or less, only a few dislike Putin. Others feel that Putin isn’t ‘Putin enough,’ in other words, that he should be doing more of what he is doing.

8. Last but not least, Crimea becoming a part of Russia was a huge shock to the West. At least several regions of Ukraine can’t wait to follow Crimea’s example – and that was never part of the plan either.

Consequently, US/Obama’s (yes, we know that Obama is just a figure-head) policies have been a total fail on all fronts, except the successful destruction of poor Ukraine.

Enter low oil prices…

At one point US managed to hijack the OPEC oil price manipulation. This is easily done by what is known as US secret crash protection team and shorts/derivatives dumping. Incidentally, something similar is being done to keep gold/silver prices down.

Once the price manipulation is hijacked, all they have to do is: 1. keep it at a certain level; 2. keep those OPEC countries and execs, who start rebelling, in line.

And now we’ve come full circle: the latter is the real reason OPEC President Diezani Alison-Madeuke was arrested in London!

PREDICTION:

Therefore, US wants to continue keeping oil prices suppressed for as long as possible in order to continue hurting Russia. This is tied to elections. At a minimum, US, aided by UK and the City of London, will continue manipulating oil prices till US elections. At a maximum, they’d love it if they could keep them low until Russian presidential elections, to try to dampen Putin’s chances.

But here is the ultimate timeline: when they finally see that Putin gets re-elected despite all of their efforts, they’ll let it go.

The long-term problem with such mafia-like, or highway-bandid-like, behavior, is that US is quickly losing any shred of reputation it still has left worldwide. The result will be the universal distrust and hatred towards the country once called ‘a beacon of democracy.’

Meanwhile, Russia and Putin’s influence and reputation worldwide will continue growing.

Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions

(LadaRayLive 16 episode)

Support: Like, share, comment on my videos! Sub to Lada Ray Channel!

For those who prefer to read, below is the written version

(the video above contains additional relevant maps and pics)

As we know, Greece is in technical default on its 1.5 bln euro payment to the IMF/EU creditors. Experts tell us that this could snowball, with Greece going into default on all its debt, which is over $350 bln. If Greece defaults on its entire debt obligation, it will send huge shocks through the world financial system and will seriously undermine Eurozone and Germany.

This is why Greece’s negotiation position isn’t that hopeless. They have aces up their sleeve. EU can’t afford Greece’s total default, neither can it really afford Grexit. US cannot afford Greek default either, because it can signal the beginning of the end of the whole dollar-based empire.

The national referendum announced by the ruling Syriza party on the future of Greece is to take place on July 5th. Greek PM Tsipras urges people to vote ‘no’ to creditor demands, in order to improve his negotiating position.

My prediction: The Greek referendum will deliver the majority NO vote to austerity and creditor demands.

The fact that creditors didn’t give an extension to Greece so people could vote, instead squeezing the country on June 30th, is very telling. I wonder, what happened to the supposed ‘democracy’ the West is so proud of? How democratic is it to sabotage the Greek national referendum – a true voice of the people?

First, it’s clear double standards: Greece, a member of the EU, is treated as an unloved, unwanted child by the EU and IMF. IMF, of course, represents the interests of the US and EU, where US rules supreme.

At the same time, IMF’s Christine Lagarde tells us that Ukraine, not a member of the EU, will continue receiving IMF loan tranches, even if it defaults on sovereign debt it owes Russia. This is in direct violation of the IMF laws.

So, the West is now in violation of both self-professed cornerstones of its society: democracy and law.

Do you know how empires die? That’s how – they implode on themselves, confused and in denial. We are observing a slow disintegration of the Western (US-EU) empire. This is the time when only the blind and the unscrupulous don’t see that the king is naked.

Second, and most importantly, the difference in position on Ukraine and Greece by the IMF and EU is clearly geopolitical in nature and has absolutely nothing to do with economy. The common denominator in both is the country’s relationship with Russia.

The present Kiev junta in Ukraine is supported because it’s at loggerheads with Russia, yelling and screaming on every corner that Russia attacked them. No one believes that, but this narrative is diligently parroted by the Western MSM, nevertheless.

This has to be expected, if whistleblower journalists from countries such as Ukraine and Germany come out with revelations that they are given the text of what to say in their reports – a text written at the US embassy – and told not to deviate from it. A well-known Kiev journalist Oles’ Buzina was recently killed after the publicly revealed that his publication was forced to print false information based on the US embassy in Kiev script. German whistleblower journalists who have revealed that the entire journalism profession in Germany is sold-out to the US, doing only USA’s bidding, are forced to go into hiding because of threats.

Greece is shunned and squeezed because it dares to have good relations with Russia, speak up against anti-Russian sanctions and participate in Turkish Stream project.

I talked about the geopolitics and economics of Turkish Stream in my previous episode: Macedonia Coup Attempt – War Against Russia & China (LadaRayLive 12).

GREEK DEFAULT AND GREXIT PREDICTIONS

You know my prediction about Greece: it will exit the EU by 2017. In my original prediction, which you can find in Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey-Greek Election-EU Breakup (LadaRayLive 6) and my FT articles, I said that the reason it will take some time is because the relationship with the EU is so complex that it will take some time to untangle.

We already see that the energy is moving in the direction of Grexit. But it won’t happen yet. Greece and EU will be delaying it for now. The most important mark for Grexit will be the completion of Turkish Stream. Grexit will happen close to that date – this is the date to watch!

Of course, due to the importance of Turkish Stream for so many reasons, it will be sabotaged by the US, EU and Germany. It will be a difficult going, as I said in the previous episode. But it will be done.

From this perspective, it’s more beneficial for Greece and all other parties involved, including Russia, if Greece agrees to certain conditions by creditors and stays low for now. Direct confrontation with the EU will only make them sabotage Turkish Stream more forcefully.

For now, Greek debt will have to be a compromise, where EU will give some and Greece will, too. There is indication that that’s what Greek PM Tsipras is doing.

To conclude: will eventual Grexit cause a domino effect all over the EU? Yes, it would. However, it won’t be fast. I see it as a slow and gradual process, taking years and lots of negotiations.

For the next few years, the make-or-break moments of reckoning to watch are: completion of Nord Stream-2, Turkish Stream, discontinuing of gas transit to EU via Ukraine, and a change of power in Ukraine, accompanied with gradual weakening of the US. The timeline for all this is 2016-2019, with most events taking place between 2017-2019. US weakening will continue after 2019.

New Predictions: Gazprom Gears Up for Gas Shut-off to Ukraine. What’s Next?

Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller has warned 2 days ago that Kiev failed to pre-pay for Russian gas. He has said that Gazprom will have no choice but to cut off gas to Ukraine, since pre-payment has failed to be delivered on time. According to the agreement reached in the fall 2014 between Ukraine, Russia and EU, where EU acted as intermediary and guarantor for Ukraine, Kiev must pre-pay for any gas deliveries. The discount gas price was also negotiated. Previously, Kiev regularly failed to pay for gas delivered in advance.

Miller also warned that Russian gas shut-off for Ukraine would mean the danger of gas supply disruptions for the EU – video report in Russian. The reason for that is Ukraine’s siphoning of gas designated for EU that goes through the Gazprom pipeline located on their territory. The tactic of stealing EU’s gas has been implemented by Kiev for years.

In the video below, Vladimir Putin confirms the above, saying that “Gazprom has been fully committed and continues being committed to fulfilling all of its contractual obligations. Ukraine’s pre-payment is only enough for no more than 3-4 days. After that, Gazprom will cease gas deliveries to Ukraine.”

As of 2014, Ukraine owed Russia $5.5bln in unpaid gas debt. Overall, Ukraine owes Russia over $33-36 bln, considering both corporate and state debt. Incidentally, Gazprom was the very last creditor able to collect $3bln (out of $5.5bln) from Ukraine.

The country is bankrupt. Any money that is still there, gets stolen by oligarchs, corrupt politicians and military. Ukraine economy has been destroyed as a result of the February, 2014 coup; as a consequence of severing all ties with Russia – until recently, the largest buyer of Ukraine goods; and due to the devastating civil war with Donbass.

The true state of the Ukraine economy has been concealed through Western loans to keep the coma patient just barely alive. Another way to keep delaying the admission of insolvency is to conduct a war. This is why the war with Donbass is necessary for Kiev.

Several EU countries have been doing the illegal ‘reverse supply’ of the Russian gas to Ukraine, also to keep the patient just barely breathing. In reality, it’s not a reverse supply at all: part of EU gas simply stays in Ukraine, being siphoned off, while Ukraine still illegally collects Gazprom transit fees for this volume.

Predictions:

IMF, US and EU won’t keep supporting Ukraine forever. It’s too big, too corrupt and too broke. Ukraine is needed for the West, and especially for the US, as a convenient tool in order to weaken Russia by maintaining an area of permanent instability on Russia’s borders, and if they are lucky, by dragging Russia into the direct confrontation with Ukraine. There are economic and propaganda reasons as well, such as sabotaging Russian economy, painting Russia as a villain and aggressor, as well as making Russia strain her resources trying to help Donbass, and later Ukraine.

Certainly, US would love to see EU weaken as a result of Ukraine conflict as well. Putting a wedge between Russia and EU (it especially concerns Western Europe/Germany/France), and Russia and Ukraine, is also high on the US list.

The territory known today as Ukraine will be abandoned and thrown out as a used-up lemon as soon as US/West see that it’s too expensive and too unproductive to keep afloat this Titanic. This will happen as soon as they decide that their plans in regards to Russia have failed. Until this realization settles in, unfortunately, they will keep tormenting the poor Ukraine.

The ukro-nazi Kiev regime is both inept and extremely corrupt. The population of Ukraine has been duped by Western/Polish/Soros sponsored and trained MSM. But no one can be duped unwillingly. Part of Ukraine populace wanted to be duped into believing the fairytale that once they sign an association agreement with EU they would start making salaries and pensions on par with European and that everything somehow would become champagne and roses in their corrupt country. In reality, Europeans themselves would have told these naive and lazy Ukrainians that only hard work and taking responsibility for their future could turn things around for them. Doing nothing and hoping for a rich uncle to come and save them would hardly help.

These ukro-sheeple allowed the nazi regime to take over the country, and they allowed the destruction of the economic link with their biggest trade partner and closest neighbor, Russia.

But the most important thing to understand about contemporary Ukraine is this: while the minority was rabidly anti-Russian, and while some believed the Western fairytale, the majority was simply apathetic and indifferent. The reason for this is that many of those who in the West are customarily called ‘Ukrainians,’ in fact do not consider themselves as such, and do not believe in their country. The majority of Ukraine citizens never asked to be separate from Russia and didn’t want the 1991 divorce. They awoke one day to find out in surprise they were foreigners in Russia, the country they considered their motherland. For 23+ years, they lived in the country they didn’t believe in.

According to the official data, 7-8 million Ukrainians choose to live and work in Russia. Out of these, at least 5-6 have been employed in Russia for a long time, the rest are refugees from the present Ukraine crisis and draft dodgers. There are 1.1 million of Ukrainian draft dodgers presently in Russia.

The above doesn’t take into account those former Ukrainians who managed to become Russian citizens. There are lots of these too. This also doesn’t take into account the 2.5 million Crimeans. Crimean population increased from 2.2 million to 2.5 million during the past 8-10 months, as Ukrainians run to Crimea in order to become Russian citizens.

More about apathy. When people in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa, and even in Kiev, saw ukro-nazis parading in Western Ukraine, they thought, “Let them, as long as they stay in Western Ukraine and don’t bother us.” But ukro-nazis didn’t stop at Western Ukraine.

When they saw ukro-nazis burning tires and throwing Molotov cocktails during 2014 Kiev maidan, they thought, “So what; as long as they stay away from our towns.” Then ukro-nazis came to their towns and villages and started shelling them and burning people alive.

The people of Donbass and Ukraine now have no choice but to notice what they tried hard to ignore: for 23 years they had lived in the artificial conglomerate of oblasts with varying interests and allegiances, loosely and reluctantly tied together by economic infrastructure, and forced to live within one state they never wanted. The long-festering infestation has been finally brought to the surface and exposed to all. It has become impossible to ignore; the situation has gone too far and it has to be dealt with. Where the artificial state called Ukraine used to be, eventually, the new country (or most likely, 2-3 new countries) will have to be rebuilt from ruins.

Ukraine’s future now depends on the inner life force of its people. The higher the life force, the better the prospects for the people’s future and the sooner any country is able to get out of a crisis. Russia’s life force is so strong that, despite all the problems, it has taken Russia less than one decade (1992-2000) to get out of one of the most devastating crises in her long and turbulent history. Ukraine isn’t Russia, as we can clearly see. Read more in-depth analysis in: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.

However sad and cruel it may sound, Ukraine needs this cleansing through fire and ice, through war and devastation. If all this doesn’t awaken the people of Ukraine, nothing will. As a necessary side effect, the Ukraine crisis already woke up Russian people, as well as the people in Asia and Latin America; it’s even starting to wake up Europeans.

This Kiev government is in fact a demolition crew, there to complete the destruction of Ukraine’s economy.

If US/West can’t have Ukraine, they will make sure the future generations get a wreck of a country, and that Russia has to spend as many resources as possible to resurrect Ukraine economy later. The problem with this way of thinking and operating is that karma is a bitch. As the Russian saying I mentioned previously goes (it’s worth repeating), “don’t dig a grave for someone else – you’ll fall in it yourself.” It may not happen right away, but it will happen.

AND…

IS ASTANA, KAZAKHSTAN, A FUTURE NWO CAPITAL?

I’ll be honest; it has been difficult for me to write this piece. I started many times, added some notes here hand there, but had some reluctance to publish it. Despite my going pretty deep, it seemed to me that the issue was still deeper than that. Something still seemed unsaid that should have been said. There still seemed to be some forces, and some hidden, not very flattering features of the human psyche, that were so dark and unsavory that I was unwilling to delve in.

Being an empath and Intellect Shifter, I usually find that there are no mysteries in this world. Everything is usually laid out in front of me like an ever-changing tapestry, including events, their profound motivations, and the deepest human emotions, as well. It is a rather rare instance when I find myself in disbelief that even those I consider smart people can get so easily caught in the web of lies. What is it in human psyche that allows it to build walls so easily, and to believe lies so readily?

In short, I can tell you what it is: it is called fear, the built-in human emotion that is supposed to safeguard us from danger. It’s a very useful warning mechanism; yet, due to the misused human ego and mind games, fear most of the time becomes the reason for the humans’ self-fulfilling prophecy.

It’s just that it’s so unbelievably obvious! How can people not see the traps laid out for them by forces with the darkest of the dark ulterior motives?

But this is another topic, which is very important, and I plan to discuss it in my future articles.

For now, I’ll repeat the advice I have given before. To get out of the matrix of fear, raise your vibration to the level of reason, and subsequently, to love. Important clue: love without reason will still lead you astray; you need both to effectively function in the middle realm, also described as the earthly human realm.

In this piece I am offering you a unique opportunity to firmly raise your vibration to the level of reason. I will touch upon certain facets of what I call the Putin Phenomenon. The phenomenon of Putin is much larger, of course. This, very detailed and meticulous article is just the beginning. The PUTIN ENIGMA is to follow. As promised, in 2-3 weeks I will present to you a special report, which will give you a complete understanding. When the special report is ready, the announcements and links will be posted on this blog.

The title of this article is controversial at best. We will discuss a lot of juicy stuff, including: different facets of the NWO issue in connection with the Russian President Vladimir Putin; what is the West really after; the real story of the Belgian US Treasury purchase scandal; the related issue of Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, as the alleged future capital of NWO.

 World’s most powerful man or NWO agent?

Putin 1

According to the mainstream media and politicians in the US, EU, and other Western countries, Putin is the biggest problem the world has today. Strangely enough, it appears it is Putin who is behind pretty much every problem the West itself has created.

Putin goes around personally shooting people, and he personally heads up the rebels in Donbass. Don’t you see him behind that mask?

In 2004, Putin personally went to Kiev under the cover of the night and poisoned the US stooge and ex-Ukraine president Victor Yushchenko (as if that one didn’t generate enough enemies in his own country for that to happen). Putin also personally poisoned the infamous Litvinenko in London (of course, by sneaking into London illegally). It seems only the lazy don’t know by now that 9/11 was the inside job, so sadly, they can’t blame that one on Putin. Similarly, the useful puppet Litvinenko’s so-called plutonium poisoning was in fact a false flag by UK’s MI6 gone bad.

Another example of a botched false flag was the 2013 hit on ex-Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky. When Berezovsky mysteriously, and totally out of character, hanged himself in his London mansion (for which, strangely, the investigation was never completed), Russia, and of course, personally Putin, were supposed to be blamed. Russians realized right away what was going to happen, and a brilliant move followed. Russians made public the secret letter Boris Berezovsky had sent to Putin, begging him for pardon and a return home. The UK couldn’t manufacture another anti-Russian hoax in view of the clear evidence to the contrary. This is how the hastily put together self-hanging version emerged, never mind the uncharacteristic bruises on Berezovsky’s neck. Berezovsky, the long-standing agent of MI6 and Rothschilds, who inflicted untold damage on Russia throughout the ’90s, knew too much. He could never be allowed to return to Russia and spill the beans. Isn’t it clear who benefitted from Berezovsky’s death, and who didn’t?

But never mind that little hiccup… It’s still undoubtedly Putin who starts wars all over the world, unseats governments, creates areas of instability and arms/trains terrorists. To follow the Western logic of absurd to the end, it must have been Putin who invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, trained/armed Al Qaeda, bombed Libya and Serbia. Putin was certainly the one who masterminded and created Wall Street and the world of virtually worthless Western money; he supported the banksters and their predatory practices around the world. Putin is behind the greedy global US and UK corporations, and he masterfully manipulates public opinion through the Western MSM he controls. Why not? If Putin can personally poison a US stooge in Kiev, why can’t he do all the above as well?

At night he personally sneaks into Ukraine, bombs innocent civilians in Donbass, and yes, he was the sniper who personally shot people on Kiev maidan. He is also to blame for the civil war in Ukraine. At least that’s what Ukro MSM would have you believe. Grotesque?

But wait, that’s not all! Of course, he personally shot down that unfortunate Malaysian MH17 Boeing 777 over Eastern Ukraine (at least this is what hysterical trolls on YT would have you believe), specifically so Russia could be blamed for it, all because he is the stupidest man in the world… Or he is devil incarnate.

The Western MSM, and it appears even parts of the so-called alternative media, have been very busy vilifying Putin and Russia since forever. I know all about it having lived in the West for most of my adult life. But even I am surprised at how vicious and senselessly crazy the defamation of Putin’s character has become lately.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, having predicted the super-volatile energy of this year in my Year of the Wood Horse Predictions in January 2014, and the senseless, gloves-off mass psychosis of this entire decade. But can I personally ever get used to how unreasonable and vicious humans can be sometimes? I don’t know…

Let me illustrate my point:

After the shooting of the MH17, the biggest and most respected publication of Germany, Der Spiegel, put Putin on the cover with these words: “We must stop Putin before it’s too late.” This info comes from a German journalist – see his video in German and Russian about that. Let me get this straight: The plane flew over Ukraine territory; the Ukraine air traffic control in Dnepropetrovsk made the plane deviate from its course and fly over the war zone, thus deliberately putting it in danger; it was shot down and crashed on Ukraine territory – but Russia, and personally Putin, are to blame nevertheless.

This is important to understand! Are they after vilifying Russia? Yes, they are. But we must be clear that the above headline, just like many others, are much more targeted. Did you notice they don’t say ‘Russia?’ THEY BLAME PERSONALLY PUTIN. If you look around the MSM output, you will see that Putin, not necessarily Russia, is in the headlines. Why? Because this is done specifically to unseat Putin. This is the strategy of convincing the world, and even certain Russians, that their leader is super-bad. Vilifying a leader who doesn’t bow to them is the long-standing strategy used by the West to soften up – to tenderize, like meat before frying – their own sheeple, as well as the population of the country to be destroyed, before the actual process of destruction of said country has begun.

Many examples of this are available when the defamation, character assassination, and massive multi-prong slander of the leader preceded the wholesale demolition of a country. Russian Emperor Nikolay II in 1917, Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Kaddafi of Libya, Assad of Syria, Milosevic of Yugoslavia, and the most recent, Yanukovich of Ukraine. One example here stands out: neither Syrian people, nor the leader, ever betrayed their country, and they never bowed to the West. As a result, Assad is still there, and the US proxy Al Qaeda rebels can’t take over the country. Of course, it is also largely due to the Russian support and Putin’s derailment of their plans in Syria… In both of these regards Assad is similar to Fidel Castro of Cuba, possibly the most vilified leader of all time, who survived 600 assassination attempts, but who is still there.

This brings us to Vladimir Putin, who, in my opinion has already replaced Castro as the most vilified leader. The West can’t forgive Putin that he saved Russia from the abyss; that he rebuilt Russia; that he is conducting wise, peaceful and effective policies that are about to ruin the cushy predatory lifestyle they had created for themselves at the expense of the rest of the world.

Another bit from Germany: a German politician announced recently that Russia should be denied the right to host the 2018 football (soccer) World Cup as a result of flight MH17 Boeing 777 catastrophe in Ukraine, because… Russia cannot guarantee the safety of Russian airspace. I always thought Germans were smart and well-educated. But I must have been thinking of some other Germans. For the slow ones, one more time: Boeing 777 flew over Ukraine, was shot over Ukraine, etc., etc. Germans, please buy a map and read Wikipedia or something to figure out where Ukraine is, and where Russia is.

Conclusion 1: Germans either have become very stupid ever since I knew them (as a student I had a couple of very smart German friends, Anke and Michel, and I’d been to Germany a couple of times), or they are so thoroughly under the US thumb that all they can do is parrot what lies US dumps on them. Sad, sad, sad!

Conclusion 2: No matter what Russia or Putin says, or does, no matter what the evidence shows, Putin will still be culpable of all mortal sins, and Russia will still be blamed by the West, no matter how absurd.

Warning: Let me remind my readers that I warned from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis that USA’s goal is to put a wedge, and if possible, to create a war, between Russia and EU – most importantly, Germany, as the most powerful country of the EU. Let me remind Europeans and Germans that in the course of the 20th century, Russia and Germany were successfully pitted twice against each other, which created two devastating world wars. The same forces that succeeded back than, are trying to play the old card. And judging by how Germans act, they ARE succeeding yet again. It won’t matter how low-key, reasonably and peacefully Russia acts, if Germany takes the bait again, and again, as it did in 1914 and 1941… Russian Emperor Nikolay II tried to convince parties to resolve the conflict peacefully in 1914; in 1930s Stalin tried for years to create anti-Hitler coalition with the West. None of this worked. UK (Great Britain), USA and of course, Germany, still led the world into two world wars!

The Euroclear Hoax, or how Belgium acquired over $200bln in US Treasuries overnight

I have received this question from a number of people at once. Unfortunately, I don’t have the link to the original article to which these readers are referring, nor do I have the name of the author. However, I will explain its essence so that if you see this conspiracy theory floating around, you’ll know.

One reader says: “Lada, have you taken a look at “Euroclear”? These folks serve as a clearinghouse for countries including Russia, to broker financial instruments like treasuries for others to buy. It is closely linked to the east and west, especially Russia and the IMF and BIS. It is possible that this east west paradigm is nothing more than a facade to allow all the elite to issue in a new worldwide currency like SDR’s that are tied to the IMF and the BIS thugs that were linked to Hitler, Bush, etc. A crisis like Ukraine etc. is all that would be needed to allow them to “slip in” a new currency after the dollar falls. What do you think?”

Another one writes: “Lada, help… is this stuff @ Putin and Euroclear true?”

First of all, here is how it works in the financial markets: From Russia using a certain company as a clearing agent (the one the author alleges is called #Euroclear) does not automatically follow that Russia is in bed with those who secretly own such company (allegedly, the past owner is JP Morgan). When any country or company issues government bonds, it has to go through a specialist to broker these bonds, and IF Euroclear is that specialist, it simply can’t be avoided dealing with them whether you want to, or not. Those who understand how financial world works will know that there are very few specialists in a certain narrow field. As we know, financial world has been monopolized by the US and UK, therefore, everyone has to go through the same agents.

In this comment, I heard the word ‘Hitler,’ as well as the dreaded NWO agent JP Morgan, who supposedly used to own Euroclear (but doesn’t any more). Based on that, the stretch is made that IF JP Morgan USED to own Euroclear, and JP is NWO, and if Russia used Euroclear for its bonds, then Russia is also part of NWO. Do you see how ridiculous this sounds?

In other words, if I used to have a bank account with JP Morgan (I had one over 10 years ago, when I worked on Wall Street and the most convenient bank was JP Morgan), then per this logic, I am a part of NWO conspiracy, Illuminati, and definitely secretly linked to Bush and Hitler. Wow…I am starting to get afraid of myself! But if the author of some obscure conspiracy theory that is floating around the web says so, it MUST be true?

Another example, if you ever wore a Hugo Boss suit and/or owned the Ford stock (being a woman, I never wore HB suits, but I owned the Ford stock at one point in the 1990s) both of whom were in bed with Hitler, then it obviously follows that you are a Hitler supporter!

I later received this additional message from a reader: “I completely forgot about the negative implications of the Euroclear allegation and I am certain that Russia has honourable motives…. Perhaps Lagarde maybe referring to the ‘Inclusive capitalism’ an initiative started by Lynn Forester de Rothschild! http://www.inclusivecapitalism.org/” (this is a reference to IMF SDRs – special drawing rights used presently by banks and countries internationally).

Note, all the above references by readers are based on article(s) in alternative press.

I’ll be direct. Unfortunately, not all “alternative” media is created equal. There are many alternative media sources that thrive on fear and unproven, poorly understood conspiracy theories. Discernment is advised in all cases. I don’t know this author, and perhaps he makes more sense in his other writings – perhaps not. I am not interested to find out after the above hoax. I can tell you with full confidence he doesn’t understand Russia and Putin at all, projecting Western values and mentality onto it, and substituting this false projection for real knowledge. I have read and met quite a few real deal alternative journalists and alternative analysts. Please choose to listen to the ones who know what they are talking about! Discard the rest.

In this case it doesn’t matter whether Russia’s intentions are “honorable” or selfish, or anything in between. Russia will do, like any other country, what’s in her best interests. Right now the country is governed by a very good team, the best any country has – and mind you, this wasn’t always the case. Of course, no one’s 100% infallible. But these people know what Russia needs, what she doesn’t need, and they work to steer the country in the right direction.

Consequently, who, in their right mind, would ever think Russia (or Kazakhstan for that matter with another smart leader, Nursultan Nazarbayev) for a moment would want to be a part of the CRUMBLING, DYING Western system? Russia and China are working on replacing this system – and US is NOT invited. EU may be invited, if they play nice – but NOT as the leading player.

Russia wants to free herself from the Western trap, not get deeper into it. IMF Head Christine Lagarde lives in the dream world, if she thinks they can trap Russia again via SDRs, IMF or any other way. The SDR idea is outdated and SDRs have been recognized as imperfect and unsuitable as reserve currency for years. This appears to be someone’s sensationalist attempt to push an old, irrelevant agenda.

But – this is important to understand: while Russia pursues her own core interests, these interests align fully with interests of the whole world, as the whole world desperately needs to restore balance and fairness, and get rid of the present, grossly distorted Anglo-Saxon economic model. Russia is the ultimate global balancer. If Russia is balanced, the rest of the world will be in balance as well. Read more about that in Predictions.

Russia – new secret buyer of US bonds?

This is especially hilarious! It appears some went as far as suggesting that Russia is the NEW SECRET BUYER OF US BONDS. The basis for the assumption that Russia is the secret new buyer of the US bonds, thus propping up the dollar, is apparently based on the sudden appearance of the large amount of US bonds worth $200bln in Belgium’s possession.

This suggestion appeared at the time that Putin stated that Russia will DECREASE its foreign bond holdings after the US/EU sanctions. As I have predicted from the start of the Ukraine crisis, Russia will be pivoting more and more to the East (Eurasian Union and Altyn as the new Eurasian currency; signing the Holy Grail gas deal, and other deals with China; ditching US dollar) and to the Global South (consider the mega-successful recent trip by Putin and Russian leading politicians/business people to Latin America).

Such redirection of Russia’s priorities will be happening regardless of whether the West continues insisting on slapping more sanctions, or not. This is the new reality, and they might as well get used to it.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts (Reagan’s Asst Treasury Secretary and Father of Reaganomics), who knows a thing or two about US economic policy, believes that these $200bln in US bonds are the hidden purchase by the US FED, camouflaged as another country’s independent acquisition. Of course it’s not fooling anyone as this amount constitutes 1/2 of the entire GDP of Belgium and therefore couldn’t have happened with the Belgian funds. Dr. Roberts further believes that ‘a COUNTRY with large US bond holdings’ has dumped a significant portion of its holdings in the market, and that the FED had no choice but to buy them up to avoid the run on the US bonds.

Meanwhile, Belgians believe that the $200bln in US bonds came to them via Russia. When I first heard this news, I initially thought that Russia had to park the US bonds in her possession in Belgium, where US wouldn’t get its hands on them if it decided to sanction Russia further. But the more I thought about it, the more I saw a completely different picture emerging:

The FED had to urgently purchase a large amount of the US bonds dumped by another country – and this country is Russia. After threats of financial sanctions, Russia dumped on the market about $104bln in US bonds and the FED had to pick them up, passing this amount, plus additional Treasury quantities, to Belgium to avoid crashing the US bond market if it became known Russia was dumping. Russia is SELLING US bonds – not buying!

Why did Russia agree to keep quiet about it? This would be in the realm of politics, is much as economics. In exchange for keeping quiet, Russia would obviously get something, like the US and EU paying for part of the Ukraine multi-billion gas debt to Gazprom, or a better deal on these bonds than expected, as a couple of examples.

The West in general, and USA in particular, have lost the high moral ground on just about everything. Putin and Russia meanwhile are acquiring more and more high moral ground, and respect, worldwide. This includes many in the West. Putin’s approval rating has recently hit a high of 83%.

Meanwhile, since US is now tainted with continuing allegations of spying, underhanded behavior and aggression, it has effectively lost what Americans love referring to as “the war for the hearts and minds.” US is seen all over the world as a force of evil and aggression. Americans are perceived as arrogant and untrustworthy.

There was a time throughout the 20th century, when America was a dream of freedom for simple people in some parts of the world. The reason I say ‘some parts of the world’ is because even after the slavery was abolished in the US, African-Americans didn’t have equal rights until after 1960s. At the same time, Native Americans were kept in reservations where they died a slow death. At the very same time, US dominated Latin America, sucking out resources and exploiting population. These parts of the world hardly considered USA a ‘land of the free.’

However, such was the opinion of many immigrants from Europe who ran from various world wars and conflicts, which were the trademark of the European continent. The reputation of the USA as the ultimate safe haven had only increased after WWII, when USA remained effectively the last man standing. Europe was in ruins both physically and in spirit. Russia was destroyed and lost 27 million people. While Russia and Europe were trying to recover, USA was free to claim the global reserve currency status, as well as the status of the undisputed leader of the Western world: ideological, political, cultural, financial, military and industrial. One of the perks of all this was the ability to produce less and less, while consuming more and more. Why not – it was all paid for by the hard-working nations that bought US Treasuries and sent their cheap goods. Another perk: all Western nations and many Third World nations started storing their gold reserves in the US as the “safest place on earth.”

The status of the world reserve currency, gold reserve center, and the political/military center of the Western world brought untold riches to the US. Let’s also recall that only WWII ended the American Great Depression. If not for the war, US may have never recovered, and the land of the free may have looked completely differently.

From this alone we can make a very important conclusion: US needs wars on European continent; it needs to pit against each other the most powerful competitors. These are, and have been previously, Russia and Germany. USA has a new power house rising: China. US has been trying to pit China and Russia against each other for years, with no result. US has to settle for trying to pit Japan and China against each other, with partial success.

From the above we can clearly see how much Chinese and Russians are smarter than Europeans, who take the bait every time. This is for the rational Europeans out there: you now know what they want – DON’T take the bait.

Let’s get back to our history lessons: The US riches and influence simply skyrocketed after the collapse of the USSR. There was no one left to challenge the US, and no one to keep its ambitions in check. From this, we can also make a conclusion how desirable the collapse of the Soviet Union was for the US. It is well documented that through a series of manipulations, lies, economic sabotage, and treason, US manufactured the collapse of the USSR and Russia in 1980s-1990s.

As a result, the world started tilting into a bigger and bigger imbalance as the US claimed the status of the only super-power in the world, “exceptional” in every way. This claim went unchallenged as everyone in the 1990s simply swallowed it, thinking the times of prosperity for all had come, courtesy of the infallible American Empire’s economic model. You can read more about this in Predictions.

The US seemed to not be able to go wrong. Russia was bashed and maligned, or simply put down. Russia was seen by many, even inside the country, as finished. At the same time, US was put on the pedestal. By whom? By all of us. WE ARE ALL COMPLICIT. WE WERE ALL SHORTSIGHTED!

The difference is, some of us came back to our senses and saw the truth, while others are still asleep and happily deluded. For the first time, I saw the truth during the 1990s bombings of Yugoslavia by US and NATO. I think, that was a cold shower for many Russians, no matter where they resided. I woke up completely in 2002 – after 9/11 and before the invasion of Iraq. I traveled to Asia, and was shocked to find how little Chinese, Malaysians and Indonesians trusted US in those days. Americans were openly called ‘imperialists.’

This brings us to the following conclusion: We still live in the ‘habitually West- centric world.’ I can assure you that the tide is changing, but due to the pervasiveness of Western penetration into every sphere of the planetary human existence, it will take a while to unravel all the dependencies. This is why we are in for a number of very tedious and unpleasant years. My point is, we are constantly talking about what the West thinks, says or does in relation to Russia and other countries. In many Asian cultures people always thought differently, same with Latin America and Africa. We need to stop validating the spoiled West by paying this much attention to their tantrums. It’s a good idea to finally start starving them for attention, giving much more prime time to other countries’ opinions. Yes, I know, they had taken over the entire world’s communication system, including MSM, the web, social media, and it seems partially even the alternative media. This is why we need more articles like this one – we need more of those who tell and spread the truth.

Let’s return to the US ‘success story:’ in the second half of the 20th century, USA succeeded in accumulating tremendous financial, political and psychological capital as a result of a certain sequence of events, its own clandestine efforts to topple the USSR, and the naiveté of the earth’s population. And what do they do with this unsurpassed capital? They squander it within 20 years, making USA the most hated and distrusted country in the world, even by the standards of the thoroughly brainwashed world’s population.

This brings us to the present moment. USA has lost its clout. It has lost trust. It has lost good will – completely. Perhaps a government/country that still had some honesty left would have admitted mistakes and would have done some soul searching? Perhaps it would strive to change its ways? What does US do? It plows on, insisting on its “exclusivity” and “special-ness.” It steamrolls across countries, leaving ruins and dead bodies in its wake, it spies on the whole world, it kidnaps, stages bloody coups and threatens everyone who is not entirely subservient. It spreads senseless chaos and destruction all over the world.

For those US cannot threaten or eliminate directly, it kills via its propaganda. Character assassination is one of the favorite weapons of the United States of America.

Since US cannot be seen as a positive force any more, the only thing that is left for its propaganda is to discredit the opponent. To do that, the US needs to twist the reality in such a way that the opponent is painted with the tainted brush.

In other words, US is not interested any more in proving that it’s a force for good in the world. Alas, it’s too late for that as everyone’s aware of the truth. USA isn’t trying to show it’s not the driving force behind NWO. It is abundantly clear that America has lost the fight for the hearts and minds.

Therefore, USA’s new strategy is to paint everyone else with a tainted brush, so everyone seems tainted as much as the USA, and this especially concerns Russia and Putin.

This is actually a brilliant tactic, which easily confuses people – even the smart ones. This is called “I am going down, but I am determined to drag down with me everyone I can.” Will it work? Short term – yes, as it confuses people and slows down the progress of transitioning to a better, more equitable society, not based on US hegemony and US dollar dominance. People start questioning if it’s even worth protesting, or getting to the bottom of the truth, if all global elites are corrupt equally.

However, it will not work for long. The US doesn’t really think long-term. All they are attempting to do is kick the can down the road.

Who sees through the tainted picture? 1. Those who have a very good inner lie detector, who can read people and the energetic imprint of their actions. 2. Also, those who know the reality on the ground – what is Russia and what her aspirations are, the psychology, history and mentality of the Russian people. 3. Of course, those who can see the world through clear eyes. 4. Those who live in the Russian space. Every time Russians see Putin criticized in the West, they just smile: this means that he is doing something right. (Note: This doesn’t mean that there are no Russians who think differently. There is a pervasive, but diminishing, Western presence in Russia as a result of the USSR collapse and the ’90s. There are NGOs, fifth column, Western-style neo-liberals, who are generally despised, and simply deluded people as well. Here I speak of the prevailaing energy and the growing healthy forces that are clearly visible.)

That said, blaming Putin for being a secret part of NWO is a very insidious tactic and it’s geared towards the smarter and more awake people. These would naturally support Putin because of his actions. But if they succeed in twisting the truth so he seems like a double agent of the West, than he is distrusted and branded the same as others by those who are predisposed to believe conspiracy theories, however outlandish – simply because such theories offer a seeming alternative to the existing official point of view.

When the tainted brush propaganda technology is turned on, distrust and confusion are the result. These lead to paralysis and inaction – and this is exactly what they want to achieve! They want the majority to be passive and subservient, and the smarter minority to be passive and distrustful of all. Mission accomplished!

Predictions: Russia Hits West With Return Sanctions

Russia may ban EU flights across Russian territory

As a result of the EU sanctions against the Russian civil aviation industry, at least one Russian airline “Dobrolet,” had to cease operations. Dobrolet flies to Crimea and now Crimea is in a difficult situation due to a very limited airline connection with Russia. Crimea presently doesn’t share land border with Russia.

Dobrolet Airlines is trying to secure aircraft leasing deals in China and Singapore to replace Western jets it is banned from using. It appears, Dobrolet is also in negotiations with Boeing to purchase 16 jets. I know they are in dire straits, but my recommendation would be NOT to deal with Boeing, considering recent Boeing 777 downing in Ukraine, company’s US origins and reputation.

In response, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia is considering response sanctions against the EU. The proposal is to ban EU flights across Russia. Considering Russia covers 1/6th of the Earth’s land mass and occupies large parts of both Europe and Asia, it is a big problem for European flights to Asia and the Far East. All EU flights to Japan, S. Korea and other Asian countries go across Russian territory. This saves 3-4 hours flight time and $40,000 per flight in fuel cost. Russia may ban some, or all, such flights, making planes take longer and more difficult routes.

There is no final decisions yet, but it is expected soon. Meanwhile, EU airline stocks are taking a hit in anticipation of the Russian sanctions.

Gas sanctions on the horizon?

EU, when imposing their sanctions, was very careful not to touch the Russian gas industry, as first and foremost, the EU would be hurting itself. It has become known that Gazprom has sent a letter to all its trading partners, proposing to trade its gas for rubles, bypassing the dollar entirely. So far, the tone of the letter is mild, but it may change, depending on the response. We discussed this in some of my previous articles. The reason Russia was unable to transition to the ruble-based gas trade, despite trying for years, is because Russia’s main trading partner, EU, is thoroughly under the US thumb. Even if the EU wanted to transition our of the dollar trade, they can’t as US won’t let them.

Predictions:

However, the circumstances have changed, and Russia will eventually sell more gas to China than to Europe. The anti-Russian sanctions backdrop may make Russia more motivated to press for ruble-based trade with the EU very soon. US is mortally afraid of this, and this is why it will continue twisting EU’s arms. US will also use all available methods to try to scare Russia. This is why, unfortunately, US will continue war in Ukraine for as long as Ukrainians allow them to be on their territory. Let’s face it – this war is conducted, masterminded and financed by the US – and Ukrainians are just the convenient dupes and cannon fodder. US is after Russia – Ukraine is just a side effect.

If you haven’t yet, it’s useful to watch my two related videos, analysing this topic: Russia-China Deal of the Century – Huge Blow to US/EU  and Predictions: Russian Gas and Russia-China Deals.

In addition to destroying Russia, which is the prime objective of the US/UK and their cronies, they wouldn’t mind weakening the EU. By fighting with Russia, by imposing sanctions, EU is happily walking into the trap US/UK so skillfully laid out for them. This isn’t the first time: 100 years ago Europe was dragged into WWI after Great Britain successfully pitted Austria-Hungary/Germany and Russia against each other. The result was the most disastrous century in recent human history. WWII happened the same way.

I wonder, will humans ever learn?

Meanwhile, many Russians feel their government is being too soft with their response to Western sanctions. There are demands for tougher response to the US and EU sanctions, including gas supply sanctions against the EU. If EU continues on this destructive path, they MAY get gas shortages just in time for Christmas. At least, that’s what some Russians demand their government do.

Russians also demand that their government boot out the ‘fifth column’ out of the country’s media and government.

It is important to emphasize that Putin can’t afford to act rashly and emotionally as some people seem to demand he does. The world is so unstable right now that it would be disastrous not only for Russia, but for the world in general. Putin’s balanced and cautious stance is what keeps the world spinning. Hot heads need to calm down, and that includes the hot heads not only in Russia, but also the well-meaning hot heads in the West. Those who demand all kinds of drastic actions from Russia, have to take a deep breath and look at the consequences. At the very least, read my articles (and my additional clarifying writing in the comment section), which explain a lot of the underbelly of what’s going on.

Prediction:

As always, Putin will be very careful with his responses. He will consider all sides of the issue; he will set aside emotions. However correct and justified, these emotions is something the leader of Russia cannot afford. It is abundantly clear that the West, led by the US/UK/Canada, has taken a path to self-destruction. I don’t think they fully realize it yet that the path of harming Russia is in fact a bona fide path to their own destruction. When they finally get it, it will be too late. Therefore, Putin has to act in such a way that he saves not only Russia, and Ukraine, but also the rest of the world. It is my firm and extremely confident prediction that what is good for Russia, is good for the rest of the world. Russia must, and will, act in its self-interest; but by doing so, Russia also acts on behalf of the higher good of the entire planet. The sooner people in the West grasp this, the better for all. See more in Predictions.

Russia imposes broad-range agricultural/food/raw material sanctions on the West

This just in! Kremlin officially announced the broad response sanctions against all Western countries who imposed sanctions against Russia. The list of banned imports from such countries is being drawn, but it is already known that it will affect agriculture, raw materials and food from the West, including US, Canada, UK, some EU countries, and Japan. This ban will be effective for one year, but can be revised as necessary. According to Russian reports, the ban will not touch average Russian citizen, but will impact the luxury market. See report by RT: Russia hits back with agricultural bans for sanctioning countries.

As of this writing, Russia halted all agricultural imports from the US for the term of one year. Russia also banned agricultural imports from Romania. Imports from Italy and Greece will be limited. Canada’s exports of raw materials to Russia are expected to be banned as well.

Additionally, the McDonald’s presence in Russia is in question, although for now, only milk-related and cheeseburger McDonald’s products are under health services investigation. See my post about that: War on All Fronts: McDonalds May Be Booted out of Russia; Latvia Bans Russian Superstars; Why did Yatsenyuk Resign; Repatriation of Russian Capital.

Russia also banned all agricultural imports from Poland as the country that was, and is, largely behind the Ukraine crisis. Poland expected to export to Russia a billion rubles worth of apples, among other things. Polish mercenaries are the driving force behind the Ukraine army, which without the participation of the Lithuanian and Polish mercenaries, would have fallen apart and would not have been able to effectively bomb the peaceful civilians in Donbass.

Russia closed its borders to milk and children’s products from Ukraine. Soy-related products from Ukraine are expected to be banned next. Imports into Russia from Ukraine are down 23% in the first 6 months of 2014.

Meanwhile, Ukraine keeps banning all kinds of Russian imports as well, except these make painfully little sense. Recently, Ukraine banned the movie and the book by the beloved classic of world literature, Mikhail Bulgakov, The White Guard, about the plight and tragedy of the White Russian officers during the 1918 Civil War. The action in it takes place in Kiev. Here is a beautiful song from the amazing Russian movie, The Days of the Turbins, based on The White Guard. Click to listen on YT: The White AcaciaБелой акации – Дни Турбиных

Kiev also banned Russian-Ukrainian movie, Poddubny, about Ukrainian champion boxer who became national hero after defeating American champion. Poddubny, unlike Rocky, is based on true historic events. It appears the Kiev junta was afraid to offend their American bosses by allowing this kind of movie to be shown in Ukraine – a new American colony.

In addition, Kiev also plans to ban Russian medicine exports. Considering medicine cost in Ukraine is up by 300% this year, banning affordable Russian medicine will make it even more difficult for simple citizens to survive.

Russia is growing cooperation with various countries around the world, as well as some former Soviet republics and will have no problem replacing products from Europe. So far, it has been announced that Russia will increase imports of fruits and vegetables from Turkey.

Analysis and prediction:

This is a big positive for Russia. What I said in my previous articles and predictions is now playing out. I said that in the long run Russia will only benefit from the Western sanctions.

Russia doesn’t need foods and agricultural products from the West. This desire to import cheeses, wine and pate from Europe is a leftover hiccup from the 1990s, when desire to be just like the West reigned supreme as the greedy oligarchs ran rampant. Pretty packaging isn’t worth selling your country for.

Now Russia can return to her core agricultural suppliers. During my trip, I visited some Central Asian markets and enjoyed authentic restaurants. Central Asia: Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan – and this concerns Caucasus too – have wonderful agricultural products, much better and tastier than in the West. Sure, their packaging isn’t as pretty, or none at all. So what? You won’t eat packaging; it’s the substance that matters.

You can’t even begin comparing the authentic, natural Central Asian, Caucasus and Russian foods with the American over-pesticided, chemicalized, and GMO’ed products. Admittedly, Europe has much better foods and produce, but the good old Europe also started succumbing to same. It’s a little, dirty secret that GMO is already being quietly used in Europe. European soils are depleted from many years of intensive exploitation; crops are down. Europe is desperate for the agricultural output boost, which, they naively think, will be provided by GMO. Russians will only be healthier if such foods are banned. For the full analysis and predictions of the GMO/agriculture situation in the EU, US and Russia, watch: Russia’s #GMO Ban & Russia-China Holy Grail Gas Deal, including global GMO usage charts.

Central Asia and Caucasus used to, and they should continue supplying Russia with a huge variety of wonderful fruits and vegetables. In Central Asia everything matures much earlier than in Europe and can yield multiple crops per annum.

Moreover, Russia is fully capable of feeding herself with her own agricultural staples. Incidentally, Russia is expecting a bumper grain crop this year. There has been a public outcry in Russia for years that the proliferation of Western agricultural/food imports suppresses domestic producers – again an imbalance left over from the disastrous ’90s. The move of banning agriculture and foods from the West will allow domestic producers to reclaim their lawful place in the Russian market. Wheat, rye, barley, and most other grains, apples, pears, grapes, most berries (Russia has the best berries in the world!), cucumbers, potatoes, cabbage, beets, carrots, cheese, milk, awesome kefir & tvorog (farmers cheese – it also used to be the best when I was little, and very affordable), and lots of other goodies. Russian territories are huge, agricultural lands are well-rested and natural, unlike the over-pesticided, tired soils in most of the world. In fact, Russia is poised to become a truly natural, wholesome bread basket to the world, once the country invests in agriculture properly.

USSR used to have a fully self-sufficient agricultural heavy machinery production. Between Russia and Belarus all necessary agricultural equipment can be manufactured domestically. Unfortunately, due to the suicidal policies of the Kiev government, Ukraine, which is the third former Soviet republic with developed machine industry, has to be excluded from this equation.

Finally: this move allows Russia to restore some good will not only with parts of its own farming population, but also with Central Asian and Caucasus republics. The good will became tainted and confused after the breakup of the USSR, when some regions and former Soviet republics felt abandoned by Russia – the result of harmful (some Russians call it treason) policies by Gorbachev and Yeltsin.

I would caution my readers from the outright blame. I can confidently say that at least in part, it was naiveté and wishful thinking, going hand in hand with a certain lack of understanding of the geopolitical processes that got both Gorbachev and Yeltsin into hot waters (along with the entire country, I might add). I intend to write about what really happened, why and how, before, during and after the breakup of the USSR, in my future posts and special reports. I promise, the information will be revealing, and in many cases, surprising. And as always, it will be authentic. Stay with me!

On the same note, Russia will return to its faithful traditional suppliers from Cuba, Nicaragua and some other Latin American countries. Russia can also renew its agricultural ties with Vietnam, India, and possibly, other Asian countries. This is trickier for a number of reasons, including the GMO/pesticide infestation and the US subservience of some of these countries. Strictly speaking, Russia doesn’t need Asian agriculture as much due to lots of other options.

In conclusion: those who were wondering why Putin and Russia were so slow in implementing return sanctions, here is why. In the usual Putin’s style, Russia wanted to first exhaust all possible diplomatic means, appealing to reason and survival instinct of the Europeans, and hoping that the EU has enough sense left. Secondly, the direction Russia wanted to take with any return sanctions had to be such as to not harm the Russian population. Once the former was exhausted and the direction of the latter was determined (agriculture/raw materials/foods, possibly aviation), Russia could start acting.

It is clear that Russia is still hoping for a tiny spark of reason from Western Europe. My unfortunate diagnosis is that any such spark cannot be expected from the US, Poland or Canada. UK and Australia are largely in this camp, but perhaps there is a bit more resistance from the population. My diagnosis isn’t very comforting regarding the EU either. Unfortunately, the US has managed to scare European governments into submission.

Let’s recall what they did with the French bank BNP Paribas – the $10bln fine nearly bankrupted the bank. To scare the French further, US also blocked France’s access to international exchange facilities; then of course, the access was restored. This cynical flexing of its muscles may be satisfying to the US in the short run, but after this, who in their right mind would still believe US can be reasoned with? This reminds me of a huge monster playing with its food before it devours it. Pretending to let it go for a second, and then grabbing it again, before the fatal strike. What happened to France is a signal to all EU countries – toe the line, or you are next.

US, in fact, is very busy manufacturing its ultimate fall from grace. The problem for us all is that while falling into abyss, in its usual style, US tries to drag everyone down with it.

US and IMF try to manufacture artificial Argentine default 

Argentina is the latest victim of the US monstrous games. Argentina, which openly supports Putin and Russia, publicly denouncing USA’s and West’s interference in Russian and Ukrainian affairs, is also a supporter of Palestine, speaking up against the Israeli invasion.

Immediately after Putin’s recent visit to Argentina and Latin America, US blocked Argentine dollar-denominated accounts. As a result, Argentina was pushed into pre-default territory. When the payment on Argentine debt came due, Argentina was unable to access its accounts to make a payment. As the howling started that Argentina is about to declare another default, Wall Street immediately attacked Argentine currency and debt, while IMF began pressuring Argentina to restructure its debt on even more CABAL conditions than before. These new conditions would have effectively put Argentina in a slavery dependence from the West forever. If not, Argentina is facing a virtual financial blockade. However, Argentinians rallied around the government, publicly calling the US and West “vultures.”

What happened to Argentina is a warning by the US to other Latin American and third world countries: be friendly with Russia, or try to keep an independent policy – and we’ll devour you. It’s not even a mafia style warning. Frankly, mafia to me seems like a much more sensible and reasonable entity than what we are dealing with here.

Here is how they operate: each country has a weakness. They identify this weakness, store it the databank, and when they need to subdue a country, they fish out this information and engineer an all-out attack on the weakest link.

For Argentina, it is finances. Argentina, for historic and national mentality reasons, is unable to get its financial house in order based on the predatory ‘western norms.’ Argentine mentality and psyche is so different from the Western psyche that they can’t operate within the Western usury system. If you ask me, it’s a good quality! But it always gets them in trouble with the US and IMF, who are presently monopolizing the world financial system.

Meanwhile, Argentina has tremendous natural resources and lovely population. They have lots of potential, should it be allowed to freely develop. It is for the countries like Argentina that the BRICS bank is being created. For more on this read: New Predictions!

Putin Goes to Latin America: US Creates Wars – Russia Extends a Hand of Cooperation

Who would you pick as your friend?

Obama World's largest drug dealer

The country that bombs into oblivion whoever gets in its way – like #Afghanistan, #Iraq, #Serbia, #Libya, #Vietnam, #Korea, #Japan (with nukes); the country that spies on its friends, such as the newest in a barrage of NSA/CIA scandals of the US spying on Germany; the country that manipulates the whole world into submission with sanctions and threats?

France Russia

Russian President Putin meets French President Hollande in France

OR: The country that comes in peace and helps develop infrastructure, trade and mutually beneficial relations; the country that doesn’t start wars and works tirelessly to preserve peace for all, despite desperate attempts of some to start WWIII?

The answer should be clear even for the brainwashed, zombified and intimidated population of the West… I think it was always clear for Cubans.

I had been to Cuba, and met Fidel Castro, when I was barely 20. It’s a wonderful country with warm and hospitable population, romantic feel and the old world/new world charm. Due to the long-term extraction of the Cuban wealth by the US and later crippling embargo, Cuba is very poor. But Cubans never fret, making do with what little they have. One of their achievements is the exemplary FREE medical care. Another one, the best education system in Latin America. See my interviews, where I talk about Cuba: Feng Shui, Fidel Castro and Fascinating Predictions: Interview with Lada Ray AND The Earth Shifter, New Earth & Alternative Economy: Thought-provoking Interview with Lada Ray.

I am looking at the footage of #Havana today (on video below) and see that, sadly, Cuba has become so much shabbier and poorer since I was there 20+ years ago. Cuba has great potential and it needs a leg up. This leg up comes in the form of a visit by the Russian President Vladimir #Putin. Cuba, where he has met with Raul #Castro (Fidel’s brother and the current head of the country) is the first stop on Putin’s extensive, week-long tour of Latin America.

During the Cuban stop by Putin, Russia will write off 90% of Cuban debt, or $32bln of the total of $35bln. This is huge for a small, poor country like #Cuba. The rest of the debt will be invested in Cuban economy, which will give it a much-needed boost.

After this, Vladimir Putin will visit #Argentina where he’ll sign energy-related and trade expansion deals. Next is #Brazil, where he’ll watch the World Cup final, participate in the #BRICSbank creation, and discuss the information and security deals between Russia and Brazil with President Dilma #Rousseff. Rousseff joins the long list of heads of state-victims of the NSA wiretapping. In Brazil, Putin will also meet with a number of other Latin American heads of state to discuss various energy and investment deals.

Analysis

Russia on the move!

The worldwide revolt against USA – the empire gone berserk – is mounting. USA, with its idiotic, arrogant, and belligerent policies, has angered pretty much everyone on the face of the Earth, and beyond. USA not only bombs anyone they don’t like into oblivion, it not only tries to strangle economies of countries it wants weakened or intimidated, but it spies even on staunch allies like Germany.

In Europe: #NSA spying on #Merkel and every German, plus the latest two German #CIA spy scandals, are just a tip of the iceberg. US has many more ‘assets’ in #Germany, and Germans are naive if they think they are in the clear. Outraged Germans announced that they will lift a ban on spying on Americans. Can you believe it – they actually had such a ban! Talk about one-way street!

Merkel 2

Angela Merkel

With one stroke USA just destroyed BNP #Paribas, the leading bank of another European ally, #France. All because France refused to destroy its economy and business credibility by forfeiting its scheduled 2 Mistral carriers delivery to Russia (as USA demanded), and the Russia-France banking deal that was in the works for years. US fined BNP Paribas $10bln for violating US sanctions regime against Russia, which essentially bankrupted the bank. In addition, US blocked France’s ability to use the international dollar exchange mechanism. In response to all that, the outraged France Finance Minister announced that his country will be seeking to trade outside of the US dollar, and will do everything to convince its partners in the EU to do the same.

In Russia, Siberia, Asia: Putin just announced that Russia would be investing $150bln in the ambitious construction of the new leg of the Baikal-Amur Railroad (BAM), taking this money off the table for US Treasury investment. See Russia’s NEW Ambitious Anti-Dollar Move: $150 bln Investment in Baikal-Amur Railroad. After US attempted to impose sanctions on Russia, Russia sold off most of its US Treasuries, which prompted the Belgian bond scandal. Pretty much everyone misinterpreted what happened when suddenly small #Belgium “purchased” US Treasuries for the amount that was bigger than its GDP. I solved the mystery and will have an article about that very soon, so stay tuned.

Putin also made a very successful pitch at the Bali Investment Conference, where he invited #Japan and #China to invest in the infrastructure development in #Siberia and the Far East. The interest is HUGE and Russia expects lots of money flowing in from China and Japan via Russia Direct Investment Fund.

And back to Europe. South Stream – (RussianЮжный Поток): Russia just signed a deal with #Austria regarding the #SouthStream gas pipeline construction. #Hungary and #Italy reconfirmed their commitment to South Stream. This comes on the heals of “uncle Sam” #McCain twisting poor #Bulgaria’s arm to say ‘no’ to South Stream going through Bulgarian territory, thus shooting itself in the foot. More about that here: ‘Gave Americans a Blow Job For Nothing?’ Polish FM Sikorski Leaked Tape Scandal.

But wait, seeing that everyone’s signing up for South Stream, Bulgaria has already managed to do a 180 degree flip! Now Bulgaria swears that they didn’t mean they didn’t want South Stream – turns out they meant they needed to consult with the EU to make sure everything was legal. And this is precisely why they needed to talk to US senator and the world’s biggest Russia-hater McCain, undoubtedly because he is the best expert on EU policy. Grotesque? Pitiful? All the above!

Russian FM #Lavrov just met with his counterpart in #Slovenia to sign the South Stream deal. Slovenian FM admitted that US put pressure on Slovenia not to sign the South Stream deal. US ambassador to Ljubljana even pressured Slovenian leadership not to receive Lavrov at all! This is the first admission of US pressure by a EU official. Despite that, #Slovenia signed up for South Stream. The neighboring #Serbia has already signed the 2.1 bln euro deal for building South Stream on its territory.

South Stream gas pipeline, designed to bypass #Ukraine, will take the capacity to blackmail Russia and EU away from the Kiev US stooges. It will increase the diversification and security of gas transit to Europe.

Proposed South Stream route

Gas transit/Russia/Ukraine Prediction: I said this before and I will reiterate: Russia will eventually phase out Ukraine as a transit artery for Russian gas to Europe. Ukraine proved to be an extremely unreliable transit country, prone to the outside manipulation, violence and outright theft. It will be a matter of time. After Ukraine no longer is a meaningful transit country, US/Kiev/EU will not have as much capacity to blackmail Russia on the gas front. At that point Ukraine will become uninteresting to the US and it will be simply abandoned like a used-up lemon. What the West is trying to achieve before they abandon Ukraine is destroy its economy. They are partially succeeding. How far they will get in the Ukraine economy destruction depends on how quickly Ukrainians wake up to the fact that they are being raped. More about Russia, Ukraine, USA, and other countries in PREDICTIONS.

Russian Presence in Latin America

Vladimir Putin’s trip to Latin America is very meaningful. He will meet with different leaders to discuss bilateral trade outside of the dollar system; creation and financing of the BRICS Bank to be juxtaposed to the rotten #IMF and World Bank system; energy and security projects; oil and gas field development.

Newest info: After Cuba, Putin made a surprise stop in Nicaragua. After that, he stopped in Buenos Aires, where he signed a number of energy and trade deals with President of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner. Argentina is very interested in increasing trade with Russia, which right now is only about $2bln. Incidentally, Russia Today (RT) office broadcasting in Spanish for Latin America will be located in Buenos Aires.

To say that Putin’s visit to Latin America has to do with the blatant US meddling in Ukraine, is to say nothing. Cubans, Venezuelans, Argentinians, Bolivians and other Latin Americans are so fed up with the US always IMPOSING something on them that they had been begging Russia for years to have tighter ties with them. Russia finally decided to take decisive steps to properly diversify its huge currency reserves away from the dying dollar. Russian currency reserves are around $450-500 bln. This is the third largest currency reserve in the world.

Instead of buying worthless US dollars or euros, investing these in the infrastructure projects inside the country, as well as in various infrastructure, development and natural resource projects in Latin America, Europe and Asia is THE WISE thing to do.

Russia is also considering reviving its military bases in Cuba, and that’s 100 miles from the US shore. Russia abandoned her bases pretty much everywhere in the world after Gorbachev came to power, but the US shameless interference in Ukraine and persistent attempts to drag #Georgia, #Moldova, and now Ukraine, into #NATO prompt Russia to rebuild her defenses against the super-bully of the world.

I am looking forward to seeing how Americans will enjoy having Russian military bases within 100 miles of their shores. Rest assured that Cuba isn’t the only country that would love to host Russian bases: #Venezuela, Argentina, #Bolivia and #Nicaragua all have issued a standing invitation.

Predictions

I

Russia is giving an example of how to conduct her global affairs peacefully and cooperatively. But I seriously wouldn’t recommend the US and EU to continue stepping on Russia’s toes. The result is always the same: every aggression against Russia turns into a humiliating defeat and long-term disaster for the aggressor (think German aggression in 1941; think Napoleon aggression in 1812). I have to say the US is legendary for its survival instinct. This is precisely why they will never dare attack Russia directly. This is precisely why they always use proxies to do the dirty job for them. But someone who betrayed once, will betray again. US proxies eventually turn against them: think US-trained/financed Al-Qaeda & Taliban. And this is what will eventually happen with Ukraine and various US allies in the EU.

II

Expect Russia to create a new investment and business climate both inside the country and abroad, which will eventually result in a global shift of how things are done internationally. China is also working on same. COOPERATION, as opposed to confrontation, is the word that comes to mind.

#BRICS will slowly but surely fully develop the BRICS Bank, which will create a much more humane and forward-looking alternative to the existing rotten IMF/World Bank system.

The crumbling US dollar system will continue being undermined both inside and out by the idiotic actions of the US, and by the fed-up population of our planet that is gradually rebelling against the dollar slavery.

III

All of the above mega deals and projects will be financed outside of the dollar. This effectively means that less and less money will be fed to the US Treasuries, thus undermining the fake financial backbone of the US empire. These moves will gradually take away the US dollar status as reserve currency.

Cyprus Crisis Explained in 8 Minutes

Today I want to discuss the Cyprus banking debacle, its consequences for Cyprus, the EU, Russia and the rest of the world. You can watch video report on YT or read the article below.

Watch full video report:

Note: If the volume in this one seems low, please boost it in your computer or use speakers. It sounds fine on my end, but I’ll be working on increasing it in future vids. Unfortunately, what’s done cannot be changed as YT won’t allow it. I’d have to redo the whole thing.

 

Read article:

cyprus map

Cyprus is tiny, and its economy only constitutes 0.2% of the EU economy, however, the Cyprus banking disaster has long-ranging implications for the country, the EU and the entire world. How?

These are the most important points to remember:

First, this is a test case implemented by the EU to see how far they can go in their capital controls and in “reshaping” (read “destroying”) various economies to their specifications. Put simply, we are observing a test case for the controlled demolition of weaker economies. A good past example of controlled demolition to keep in mind is the Argentinian default. Presently, there is a number of the EU economies that are standing in line for various “interventions” by Brussels, IMF and ECB. These are the EU periphery countries: Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Hungary and others. Cyprus is a great test case due to how small it is. The theory is that it wouldn’t send any significant shock-waves through the EU economy, unlike say a much larger country, like Spain or Italy. Additionally, it’s an offshore tax haven within the EU, which is something Brussels and Berlin are itching to close down. Finally, much of the foreign money in Cyprus is Russian, or non-EU, and based on the current EU propaganda, those funds deserve to be taxed. According to those who pull the strings in the EU, this is a simple and full-proof scenario, but that’s where they are dead wrong! Here’s why.

cyprus-bank

Cyprus is a self-professed offshore banking haven. More specifically, it WAS an offshore banking haven – no more, because as a result of this debacle, the Cyprus banking haven status is gone, and that’s a guarantee. Any banking in the world is based on trust and faith in the institution to which you are entrusting your money. Trust is two-fold: solvency + a consistent delivery on promises. If you promise that the money in your bank will be kept in segregated, private accounts and that these accounts will be tax free, you better keep your word, if you want to keep your customers.

There is obviously no trust left for the Cyprus banking sector. I listened to an interview by a Russian billionaire Lebedev, who said that he kept a certain amount of money in a Cyprus bank, most of which was invested back in Russia. But whatever was left in the Cyprus account, he would withdraw immediately once he’s allowed access to his acocunt because he no longer trusted the Cyprus banking system. There are lots of private and corporate jets currently sitting in Cyprus airports, waiting for the first opportunity to get their capital out and leave forever. The capital flight from Cyprus started last year, when it had first surfaced that the country was in dire financial straits. It is estimated that 1/2 of the foreign capital left the country way before this crisis. After the present crisis, Cypriot banks will be lucky to have any capital left on their shores.

Cyprus protests

Trends Research Institute’s Gerald Celente believes that this is a deliberate financial attack against Russia. Incidentally, that’s true, there’s a lot of Russian capital in Cyprus, estimated before this crisis at $15bln. I get asked a lot about the situation with Russian capital, its nature and Russia’s role in this scenario.  This is a complex issue and I intend to cover it in a separate segment. Part of the issue here is whether it’s clean or dirty money, and if so, isn’t it “okay” to tax “dirty Russian money?” For now, I’ll just note that any laundered Russian money domiciled in Cyprus is an issue between Russia and Cyprus, and it has nothing to do with the EU. As Vladimir Putin has noted, “the EU is stealing what has already been stolen” – from the Russian people, I might add. I’ll do a separate video about the Russian side of the Cyprus debacle soon, so stay tuned.

Putin and Euro remnants

For now, back to the Cyprus issue.

Merkel 2

It’s also very important to remember that Chancellor Angela Merkel of  Germany is seeking re-election this year. Germans are unhappy about having to contribute a large percentage to the bailout of various EU countries, therefore, Merkel needs to show how tough she is with the EU periphery in order to get re-elected. This is why she is especially hard and unbending with Cyprus. Let’s remember that a Cyprus delegation went to Russia trying to negotiate a rescue package outside the EU clutches, which infuriated Angela Merkel. The EU sent a parallel delegation to Moscow to convince Russia not to contribute, while Cyprus was given an ultimatum that if they seek money outside the ECB and IMF, the EU would cut all liquidity to the island. As a result of this arm twisting, Cyprus had to agree to taxing of its private accounts.

Why did the EU go specifically after private Cyprus bank accounts? The short answer is: because that’s where the money is. Cyprus economy consists of the overblown private banking sector, which dwarfs the rest of the economy, sort of like Iceland 2.0; and in addition to that, tourism and real estate. Much of tourism and real estate are related to offshore banking. Many who come to Cyprus for banking also buy second homes there. Incidentally, in addition to Russians, many Brits traditionally bank in Cyprus. Also, I am pretty confident, some Germans and other northern Europeans keep their money there as well. It shouldn’t be underestimated how interested Germany and other EU countries are in squashing this offshore haven.

What is going to happen next? With the liquidation of the tax heaven status, Cyprus economy will be finished. Tourism will dry out, and real estate prices will crash, as foreigners rush to sell their Cyprus homes. This will adversely impact all kinds of local businesses. Sorry to say, but however you look at it, the Cyprus future is bleak.

The banks have reopened a couple of days ago, but to this moment, people can only get no more than a 300 euros daily allowance out. How long will capital controls last? The authorities are promising only four weeks. However, historical indications are not good. In Iceland, for instance, capital controls have not ceased since the banking crisis and near-default two years ago.

How does this impact the rest of the EU and who’s next? As I mentioned before, this impacts everyone very directly as this is only a test case. I’m watching Italy, Spain and other PIIGS, as well as offshore havens like Luxembourg.

Cyprus-baking protests

How does it impact you and me, and the rest of the world? The nature of banking is changing, trust in Western political, banking and economic system is evaporating, and what has happened in Cyprus can happen anywhere in the world. Are all countries equally at risk? What to avoid and how to protect yourself? I’ll discuss these topics in the upcoming videos. Specifically, I’ll discuss the situation in the USA with the IMF Global and PFG Best/Peregrine Financial debacles.
