The Decline of Hollywood and the Rise of Chinese Film Industry

Dear readers,

I thought you all may find it interesting! This is something our friend Akaida (Masaki Miyagawa) shared with me. Akaida lives in LA and is associated with the music and movie scenes there; he keeps in touch with their inner workings and developments.

In EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOD 8 PREDICTIONS we dedicated a whole segment to addressing the predictions on Silicon Valley and Hollywood. You recall that I specifically said that Hollywood is in decline, and will continue declining. At the same time, I singled out the rising film and TV industries of Canada, India and China. One of the ways this is developing is that Hollywood now uses Chinese or other countries’ production facilities and sets, special effects and design teams, as well as actors from third countries, in their films. One of the reasons: the cost of production is very significantly lower. Another — main reason — the decline of the West, and specifically, of California as the locomotive of the West.

(I should also mention UK, with its long-standing tradition of excellent theater and TV series, as well as lower actor salaries. UK is another alternative, taking away more and more content, viewership and acting jobs from Hollywood and US TV sitcoms.)

But all the above aside, the film industry of China is developing on its own, by leaps and bounds. And they are just warming up. In fact, the rising middle class and with that, the rising national pride and self-identification of the Chinese pushes the development of the movie industry to new heights.

CHINESE FILM INDUSTRY (BY AKAIDA)

Chinese movie industry sky hunter

Hi Lada, congrats on the last Q&A, your predictions are becoming confirmed by the day.

Saw this Facebook post, thought you would find it interesting.

I went to high school with Feng Zhu (see below), he went to Art Center in LA, got into 3D modeling, game design, and later special effects for movies such as the Star Wars reboot. He also started his own animation school in Singapore, and now is targeting the Chinese Film Market. His parents were professors from Beijing, so he’s well positioned to do what he’s doing.

Quote:

For the past year, I’ve been quietly working, studying and building networks in the China film industry. There is no question that the next frontier in film making will take place here in Beijing.

China’s film landscape today is reminiscent of the Hollywood’s IP explosion between the mid-1980s to late 1990s. During this period, there were a wide range of directors putting forth movies that literally shaped our imaginations. The same is now taking place in China domestically. Investors are scouring Beijing for scripts, directors, producers and teams which can make it all happen.

Golden opportunities like this don’t strike often. Virtually every aspect of film making is undergoing major transformations and there’s a huge demand for talent across all areas.

I’ve always wanted to scratch that director itch. For the past 20 years, concept design allowed me to create worlds. Now surrounded by these opportunities, I have a chance to tell my own stories within these worlds.

The first step however, is to learn. To understand the production pipeline in China, FZD Films collaborated on over 10 domestic films during the past year. Working with my talented teams in both Singapore and Beijing, we helped define the visual styles of these movies.

One of these films, Sky Hunter, directed by Li Chen, releases today in China. I will share a follow up post soon showcasing some of the designs by our amazing team.

The audience in China is hungry for fresh content. If you are also interested in putting something on the table, please send me a message. I’d love to hear from you. We need film markers here.

FZD School of Design

https://www.facebook.com/fzdschool/?ref=br_rs

Feng’s School is based in Singapore. It’s a top school for young people who want to get into computer design for games and movies. It’s also only one of 20-30 accredited schools in Singapore.

Feng just made another post, about his new movie studio!

Quote:

Mid last year, actor Li Chen contacted me to see I was interested to be the visual effects producer for his next film, Sky Hunter. I met up with LC and his lovely fiancé, actress Fan Bingbing (who also stars in the movie), over a nice dinner in Beijing. LC’s kind and honest personality instantly struck me as someone I wanted to collaborate with. This was to be my first Chinese movie and LC’s first directing role!

https://www.facebook.com/FengZhuZhu/posts/10155225779239865?pnref=story

Feng was a major part of the look of the Star Wars reboot, many popular video games and more, and now China will begin to overtake Hollywood in these areas IMO…. AND with an Asian sensibility that will appeal to that market. People are tired of Hollywood worldwide!

Also Feng is definitely a kind of higher dimensional person because as teens we would joke, and one of the jokes he made was about breathing in prana from the air! Not your average person😉

EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY BIG Q&A!​ 
(8 more questions answered: this Q&A is 1 hr 16 min total)

1. Multiple people asked this question: How to cope with mass migration in Periods 8 and 9 and what to expect for the West in that regard?
Emil says this: ‘My country is being flooded by low IQ, low calibration people from the third world. In the current 3D economic system, low IQ does not go along well with economic productivity and “democracy”, Islam does not go well along with western civilization, and people who detest your way of life do not go well in your country. On the other hand humanity is one. Lada, please explain and give your prediction on this topic.’
2. Question from 1EarthUnited Maddie:
Lada, I listened carefully several times to your informative Webinars: ESW2 Inverted Collapse and ESW3 The Future of Money. Many of my questions were thoroughly answered, thank you! One more question. As you know, I want to relocate overseas, but so far I see other countries I’m considering seem to be weaker than the US. Will there be more turmoil outside of the US before the COLLAPSE. If so, where and what is the timeframe?
3. I was born in Brazil and live in the USA, so I would like to know how Brazil will be doing during the earth shift. Thanks and I regard your work very highly.
4.  Apparently cycles can be broken. What can be done to break the cycle of warfare, have more peace and start to nurture our planet?
5. I wonder if you have any advice for balancing out our yin/yang and increasing consciousness towards 5D.
6. Lada, can you talk more about the role of the Vatican in all of this. As it seems the Jesuits are behind all of these wars to this day. I have read that they were behind Lenin, Stalin and Hitler. They were pitting one side against the other with their intrigues. It would be good to know where Russia stands on this Vatican agenda?
7. What is going on in AntArctica and when will the general population finally be aware of it?
8. Will there be an event that will reveal some great truth, and if so, what is the timeline?

LADA RAY EVENT OF THE YEAR! NEW SERIES OF THREE LIFE-CHANGING EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS!

THE NEW SERIES OF THREE LIFE-CHANGING WEBINARS

IS LADA RAY’S EVENT OF THE YEAR

1st in the series Earth Shift Webinar 2 Inverted Collapse:  RELEASE JUNE 9-10, 2017!

LADA’S MESSAGE

Dear friends, summer vacation time is approaching. I know how all of you love having fun and going away to relax and unwind.

But do you know what I also know? On average humans spend 10 times more time planning their vacation than planning their future. Meanwhile, a clear-minded knowledge and future planning is more important than ever… so you can continue enjoying your future vacations!

Planet Earth is going through a tectonic shift of timelines, consciousness and reality. There is no corner of the world that will not be touched by The Great Earth Shift as it unfolds in front of our very eyes. One day we’ll wake up and fail to recognize the world around us. Unless we are prepared.

At this time, like never before, one has to plan for the future. If we have a clear idea of what our near and far future really holds, we have a much better chance of coming out of the Earth Shift not only unscathed, but perhaps as big winners, won’t you agree? By being prepared and holding the true knowledge, you can also help those around you when they most need help.

Many of you who have been following me for a while are familiar with my futurist predictions and my accuracy track record. Many of you are also familiar with my BOOKS, EARTH SHIFT THEORIES, QUANTUM/GEO CALIBRATIONS, EARTH SHIFT REPORTS  and the TRUMP EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR.

However, I can assure you that I’ve only scratched the surface of everything I know and foresee. Since 2016 I’ve been planning this new series of 3 exclusive EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS. They will reveal much more than ever before of my theories, futurist trendcasts and predictions.

These three EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS are my best learning courses yet, coupled with more important predictions and revelations than ever before. An investment in them is an investment in true knowledge that will serve you well for years to come — knowledge you won’t find anywhere else!

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 15: PUTIN’S PLUTONIUM ULTIMATUM TO THE US

Now live and available!

 

New EARTH SHIFT REPORT 15: 

PUTIN’S PLUTONIUM ULTIMATUM TO THE US

(Written report)

 

esr15-banner-2

Dear readers,

Due to the time sensitive intel and fast-evolving events, I am releasing two Earth Shift Reports one after another. Most likely these are the last two ESRs this year and I’ll let you catch up reading and listening to them at your convenience. Don’t let the fact that all this info is released so closely together deter you. ESR15 and ESR16 contain some of the most important deep intel and predictions you’ll ever be able to read or listen to (see ESR16 announcement below). And I promise they’ll be entertaining, too! 

Reports, as usual, are donation-based and we do not set a specific amount, appreciating that different people have different financial circumstances.

If you want to support FuturisTrendcast, Lada Ray YT channel and Lada’s work, this is your best chance this year!

As always, thank you for your continued support, intelligent comments, and generous donations! I couldn’t do it without you!

Summary

The heart of this report is the story of Putin’s Plutonium Ultimatum to the US. This is one of those stories that have been shunned by the Western press and politicians, despite its global significance.

The reason it has been shyly avoided is because the US has no idea how to respond and they are afraid that by acknowledging it, they’ll vividly demonstrate to the world their intrinsic weakness. In other words, they are deathly afraid the world will finally get it that the king is naked. Not only that, they are extremely afraid that this will diminish the chances of the chosen NWO and US elites candidate Hillary Clinton and give a new boost to Donald Trump.

As a result, even though the Plutonium Ultimatum has been widely discussed and analysed in the Russian in-the-know and laymen circles, it is a total hush-hush and a complete unknown to the Western public. Out of sight out of mind, close your eyes, pretend the new reality isn’t there and pray it all goes away: this seems to be the new childish tactic of the US and EU elites, who are way over their heads in the new shifting reality, as control they have taken for granted slips out of their hands, while they have no idea how to react.

The Plutonium Ultimatum story is very important and indicative of the unfolding Earth Shift and the rebalancing of global power. But this is just the beginning and hardly the only story in this report. Equally important to the future of the world, and equally silenced are the stories that are intrinsically connected to it. In Earth Shift Report 15 we will also discuss the following.

1. The Plutonium Ultimatum has its continuation: the deliberately unrealistic and therefore mocking demands by Russia follow – on par with the openly unrealistic, mocking accusations and sanctions US/EU implements towards Russia because of Ukraine and Syria.

2. But Putin’s ultimatum goes further, and this is crucial to know for anyone residing in the US: I explain how Russia can, if so desired, leave the USA without electric power, and in complete darkness.

3. I further explain why Russia is to begin supplying S-300 anti-missile anti-aircraft systems to the Syrian government, which was impossible to imagine just recently due to pleas of neighboring governments not to change the balance of power in the region. The S-300 anti-missile systems have begun arriving. What are the Russian S-300 and S-400 systems? Why are they so feared that governments stand in line to purchase them and others beg not to supply them to neighbors?

4. Why Russia is building a new Naval base in Syria. Why Russia is returning to the Soviet bases in Egypt, Vietnam and Cuba. And this is just the beginning – more to follow.

5. Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu announced that in response to USA’s playing with fire and moving troops and weapons towards Russian borders, Russia will have a base right next to the US borders as well. Shoygu left it at that, and it made US generals go into a panic mode, inquiring whether the betraying Mexico or Canada (LOL) opened their territory to Russians. I’ll reveal the ingenious Russian plan.

6. All these events are interconnected. How it all began: the true facts and secret intel about the real reasons for the US bombing of the Syrian army and the underlying reason for Russia’s retaliation with Kalibr cruise missiles against the US Field Operations Room near Aleppo. Lots of crucial, brand new intel from my deep sources you haven’t heard before!

7. It goes further: Russian Defence Ministry’s newest intel on the provocation with the bombing of the Aleppo ‘humanitarian UN convoy.’ What really happened and why this false flag was needed.

8. This report also includes the newest from Turkey: despite the US pressure, Russia and Turkey signed the Turkish Stream deal, in addition to a whole slew of energy deals, which will re-draw the map of the energy balance in the Middle East, Eurasia, and the world.

In this segment we’ll discuss why the US was shunned at the World Energy Summit in Ankara, why Erdogan received Russian President Putin as the guest of honor, and why Saudis and Qataris suddenly prefer to talk to Russia (incidentally, per my prediction in prior Earth Shift Reports).

The consequences of the US/Canada painful shale industry fail, and what will happen with oil prices.

9. As usual, I will connect all the seemingly separate dots and give you my original take on the whole story. The escalation of tensions is the result of crazy and inadequate behavior of the US and its allies. They even managed to drag into the fray the poor silly French President Hollande, no doubt by threatening him in the upcoming 2017 French Elections. As a result of a spat with Putin, Hollande endured excruciating criticism from his own country: the right-wing and French MSM crucified him for damaging relations with Russia and making France a laughing stock. In this regard, recall my 2012 prediction that Hollande will fail to cater to the wishes of his electorate and that he’ll likely lose the next French elections! (See PREDICTIONS.)

10. The full picture analysis includes the connection to the US November 2016 Presidential Elections. But that’s not all! The story has an equally big connection to the Russian Presidential Elections of 2018. Read about it, as well.

However, the main discussion about both Russian and US Elections will happen in future reports. We’ll begin discussing the Russian Elections 2018 as we approach them in 2017. US Elections are the topic of ESR16 (see more below).

11. Why Putin is in such demand.

Putin at the BRICS Summit in Goa and the historic signing of the S-400 deal with India. Why there is such an exclusive club of those who possess the coveted S-300 and S-400.

LIST OF TOPICS

Why US bombed Syrian Army, killing 82. Did Russia really retaliate by sending 3 Kalibr missiles to destroy the US Field Operations Room, and why? The real reason why US, UK, France and others are so furious.

False flag explained: Who and why bombed the UN humanitarian Convoy to Aleppo.

Libya 2.0? Is no-fly zone in Syria possible? Why Russia sent the anti-missile air-defence S-300 systems to Syria.

What is Putin’s plutonium ultimatum & Russia’s bold demands. Why US can under no circumstances fulfill these demands. The true Plutomium story – why is it so important?

Subsequent freeze of most Russia-US nuclear cooperation. How Russia, with one move, can plunge US into darkness.

Are US and UK turning into big Ukraines? US and UK threaten Russia with war? Is there a threat of new ‘Syria’ anti-Russian sanctions? Why US needs new round of sanctions now and what will EU do?

Putin cancels visit to France – what does it mean? France as a laughing stock? Hollande’s last days as president? Why Merkel picked up the torch: Putin, Hollande, Poroshenko for tea in Berlin?

Connection to the US Elections 2016 and Russian Elections 2018.

Putin at the BRICS Summit in Goa and signing of the historic S-400 deal with India.

Russia announces the new Russian naval base in Tartus. Sergey Shoigu negotiations for the reopening the Soviet base in Egypt. Putin announces possible reopening of Soviet bases in Cuba and Vietnam. Russia will build a base just a few kilometers from the US territory? Where will that be?

The World Energy Summit in Ankara & Russia-Turkey breakthroughs.
The Turkish Stream deal, Akkuyu Gen 5 nuclear power plant, the entire Turkish energy overhaul.
Erdogan’s debt to Putin and how it will be repaid.
Why USA has been shunned at the World Energy Summit.

Return to the 2014 tensions? New Cold War? WWIII on the horizon? What do the new direct threats of war by the US and UK mean? Will US risk direct confrontation with Russia?

Expect More Provocations as Russian and US Elections Near! Russian jets intercept US spy planes in Black Sea

Yet another extremely dangerous provocation & a hostile act by the US in Black Sea, next to Crimea!

 US spy planes have twice tried to approach the Russian border over the Black Sea with their transponders off, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding that SU-27 fighter jets were scrambled in response.

 

Read my previous reports:

EXPECT MORE PROVOCATIONS, HACKS & HOAXES!

As we are approaching Russian Duma Elections on September 16, 2016 and US Presidential Elections in November 2016, the provocations of various sorts will be on the rise. They will range from examples such as above aggressive act to hysteria regarding Trump, David Hawking, Bernie Sanders and Bill Mahr being Putin/Kremlin agents as described in this article by Glenn Greenwald: What’s Behind Barack Obama’s Ongoing Accommodation of Vladimir Putin?

Note: I only recommend the opening paragraphs of the above article, which are spot on. I do not recommend the main premise and the rest of the article, especially the warped conclusions about why Obama refused to send troops to Ukraine.

Obama may want to but can’t send troops to Ukraine for much more serious reasons than the lame conclusions drawn in Greenwald’s article. Namely, by doing so:

1.  Obama would have started hot WWIII, and what a gigantic, non-removable blemish it would be for Obama’s already tarnished ‘legacy’!

2. US would lose all of its European allies, including Merkel and Hollande, in one fell swoop, should US cross that line.

3. This may signal an uprising within the thinking and sane parts of the US military – not those crazed ‘Russians are coming’ US military, whose actions we are sometimes observing.

As a reminder of how the US hysteria about Russia works, watch the Russians Are Coming film, courtesy Maddie @ 1_Earth_United (Scroll to the end of this article for LINK TO MOVIE: Hillary Clinton is Crazy, Dangerous Conspiracy Theorist! Russians Are Coming! (Watch movie!)

In addition to provocations, expect more hacks, pre-elections hoaxes and targeted info dumps as part of the ongoing info war!

On another note:

THE BRICS NEWS! 

India may purchase from Russia 4 Stealth Frigates in a new $4bn deal. Other military deals between Russia and India are being discussed as well.

New Best Friends? The Truth Behind Obama and Brazil President Dilma Rousseff Trying to Make Up

Brazilian president: Obama promised he would ‘just pick up the phone and call me’ for non-public info.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and US President Barack Obama met at the White House, promising each other an end to the frosty relations between the two countries. Rousseff was one of the most vocal critics of American spying after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed she and other world leaders were targets. Never mind NSA scandal – the two presidents promise to trust each other going forward.

And now, I’ll reveal what’s really going on!

US and Obama:

US is engaged in a complex hybrid war against Russia, China and EU and it doesn’t have any more capability to fight on yet another front. That’s why US tries to make up with former enemies, such as Cuba and Iran. This is one of the main reasons they are also doing damage control with Brazil.

2016 US elections:

On another hand, Obama is attempting to ensure a fighting chance for a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2016 elections after the disastrous foreign policy of the Obama administration opened doors of all kinds for other parties, from Republican to alternative, such as Green and Libertarian parties.

New French NSA spying scandal:

All these overtures towards Brazil are damage control, pure and simple, especially in view of the new French spying NSA scandal that is threatening to explode, potentially taking with it any Democratic presidential nominee’s chances. US now employs all its available leverage with France and Europeans to hush-up and sweep the scandal, which revealed that NSA spied on 3 French presidents, numerous politicians and business leaders, under the rug.

Through the public demo of how lovey-dovey the Brazil-US relations really are, Obama is merely attempting to send a message to the world that US isn’t as bad, that it has reformed, so please, close your eyes to reality and forget we spied on you, your political and business leaders, as well as your grandma.

US wants to tear Brazil from the BRICS and S. America

Just like in the case of the rift between EU and Russia, US is still playing the same game. If they are able to distance Brazil from the rest of the BRICS, and possibly, from the rest of South America – even temporarily – they’ll consider it a victory. They have so few victories lately that they’ll settle for anything.

In 2014 Obama attempted to put a wedge between China and Russia on one hand and India on another, by trying to convince India to leave the BRICS. That didn’t result in anything. Read more in:

Why Is Obama Scrambling to Catch Up to Putin?

Weakness or Cunning? Why US decided to End 50-Year Standoff with Cuba Now

Brazil is the next target.

But then the question becomes why Brazil is suddenly so gullible and trusting? What’s in it for them?

I’ll reveal the real reason for Brazil’s behavior. I have been observing Brazil for some time and it has been clear to me that for the past 10 months or so Brazil has been extremely quiet internationally. Just last summer and prior to that, Rousseff was very active in the BRICS and outspoken about NSA spying – and suddenly silence.

Why such change in the past 9-10 months? There were several attempts of color revolution in Brazil in this period. While Rousseff was re-elected president, she had to endure an unusually difficult election. All this is happening with the backdrop of the very expensive and financially straining Olympic Games Brazil will host in August 2016.

I have written in the past how Olympic Games are often used as a pretext to seriously destabilize the situation in the world and/or the host country. Beijing Olympics opening ceremony was used as a cover to begin the war in S. Ossetia/Georgia; 2014 Sochi Olympics were marred with Kiev maidan and illegal overthrow of the elected Ukraine president. Moscow Olympics of 1980 were undermined with direct boycott, on top of Afghanistan. Even the relatively minor mini-olympic event that just took place in Baku, Azerbaijan – the First European Olympic Games – was marred with all EU leaders boycotting the games and the attempted Yerevan, Armenia, ‘electric’ maidan. Armenia is the closest neighbor of Azerbaijan, with which it is at odds.

Note that all the Olympic Games I mentioned took place in NON-WESTERN countries. In the run-up to all these games, each host country also endured a lot of humiliating and offensive Western MSM attacks and slander, calls for boycott, etc. Recently, the president of Azerbaijan Aliyev complained of the same: Putin and Erdogan Troll EU at Baku’s First European Games.

Here is what is happening behind the scenes in Brazil. There are ‘spontaneous’ protests against the 2016 Olympic Games and the construction of various Olympic projects. In between these, there are also frequent protests against various transportation fee hikes, utility fees hikes, etc. It has proved to be impossible to start an outright maidan in Brazil, of the kind they were able to organize in Kiev.

Brazil is surrounded by countries which don’t view US interference favorably. Ukraine’s surroundings are Poland, Romania, Moldova, Germany, Lithuania, Georgia – all of whom were itching to see a regime change in Kiev. Therefore, Brazil wouldn’t get an avalanche of foreign interference on par with what happened in Ukraine.

CIA and US-financed NGOs can only go so far in organizing a color revolution. However, they can destabilize and weaken the country, damage president’s reputation, and completely ruin the first ever Olympics in South America, which are the pride of Brazil.

Sure, there are lots of problems in Brazil – every country has them. Does US not have plenty of problems? But no other country interferes in the sovereign affairs of the US, while US has the audacity to interfere in the affairs of ALL countries on the planet.

Consequently, Brazil had to ‘submit’ to the US and play a passive, meek role in exchange for the US leaving them alone till after the Olympics. Brazil got its message from all those other Olympics that were soured by the US and the West. They don’t want any problems. In exchange for playing ball, US would promise to leave their Olympics alone.

Predictions

However, this doesn’t mean at all that Brazil is changing its BRICS orientation. Call it a temporary political compromise, to be reconsidered after August 2016.

Expect Brazil to be temporarily pro-US and super-quiet internationally until at least September 2016. Obama/Democrats need to try to get through elections without additional scandals. This may be a mutually convenient truce. But frankly, I wouldn’t trust US too much. 

After the 2016 US elections – by 2017-2018 – we will start seeing a changed global geopolitical landscape. Get ready!

Why Is Obama Scrambling to Catch Up to Putin?

Thank you, Mr. President! In his recent interview with CNN, Obama admitted that US ‘brokered’ Kiev ukro-nazi coup and Ukraine regime change.

Not that it is a secret to anyone, but it’s nice to hear it straight out of the horse’s mouth.

The world does need to hear this slip-of-the-tongue admission by the Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama that USA in fact was behind the violent ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014 in Kiev that unseated Yanukovich and created the bloody civil war in Ukraine. Just one day prior, on February 21, 2014, the EU and foreign ministers from Poland, Germany and France put their signatures under a deal between Yanukovich and Kiev maidan leaders, guaranteeing a stop to violence. One day later, based on the direct US order, as was revealed first in the leaked tape by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland, and now by Obama, the violent coup overturned Yanukovich, which resulted in the civil war with tens of thousands dead, Donbass infrastructure bombed into oblivion and Ukraine economy destroyed. See RT video with admission: Obama’s guilty conscience talking.

On nother note: notice how hurt Obama sounds during his State of the Union Address and in this interview, towards Putin. Obama comes across as having a fixation on Putin and feeling personally jealous. Not a good thing for a US president, in which he demonstrates both his weakness and insecurity.

In his State of the Union address, Obama said that when in 2014 ‘Putin took Crimea,’ as he put it, everyone touted that as a brilliant chess move. But where is Russia now, he added. Russian economy is in ‘tatters.’

I’ll leave outside the scope of this piece the fact that Russian economy is hardly in tatters and that mid-to-long-term the EU/US sanctions will benefit the Russian economy tremendously. I talked a lot about that in my various articles and YT videos throughout 2014. Also, see my new videos: LRL5: Manufactured Russian Crisis, US Manipulation and Medvedev Plan and LRL6. Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey – Greek Election – EU Breakup.

In the above interview, Obama is back to justifying what were spectacular fails by the US in 2014, namely, Crimea and Donbass. No, Crimea wasn’t any grand master plan by Putin, says Obama. It was merely a reaction to the circumstances AFTER WE BROKERED THE POWER TRANSFER IN KIEV (read: ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014 that led to bloody civil war that continues destroying Donbass and killing thousands of people).

Mr. Obama, you bet Putin was reacting to circumstances you and your friends created. If not for the US, there would have been no bloody mess in Ukraine, Donbass would have not rebelled, and Crimea would have still been a part of Ukraine. Read: US Planned to Turn #Crimea into Military Base Against Russia and Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014.

So, for what it’s worth, the citizens of the Russian Crimea are saying: “Thank you, Mr. Obama!” Thanks to you and your government’s miscalculations, Crimean people’s 23-year-old dream of re-uniting with Russia came true.

Citizens of Russia are also very grateful to you. They are thankful for the sanctions, which allow them to develop their own industry and agriculture that was disadvantaged by the proliferation of the Western produce on the Russian market. Given time, these sanctions will also allow Russia to properly rebuild its financial and monetary system, nationalize Central Bank and re-gain full sovereignty of the Russian currency. This is the beginning of the end of the dollar system.

Citizens of the world are grateful to you, as well. Thanks to the US government’s over-reach and ignorant arrogance, people not only in Russia, South America and Asia have woken up. The rebellion is now starting in the EU. The first country to rebel is Greece; Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia, and eventually France, UK and Germany to follow.

Europe’s natural trade partner is Russia. Eurasia, with countries like China and India, is growing fast. Russia is a natural bridge between Europe and Asia. It is through Russia that Western Europe can connect with the booming Asia. Western Europe, Russia and Asia are a natural alliance, allowing people all over the entire continent (Europe + Asia = Eurasia) benefit from each other’s strength and borrow each other’s expertise.

The development of Eurasia, based on the new cooperative principles, will change the balance of our planet. Abandoning behind today’s predatory capitalism, people of our planet need to move to the cooperative society of the future.

America, both North and South, Africa and Australia can then also become the equal and productive partners of the new, stable and cooperative planet Earth. However, to achieve that, first we need to change the imbalanced situation that exists today when single, overly aggressive country tries to dictate to the rest of the world.

The Eurasia story is very important. Stay tuned to my upcoming Earth Shift Reports in which we will discuss it in detail!

US vassals and ‘allies’ are rebelling all over the world. A loyal vassal and NATO member of many years, Turkey, has effectively switched sides. I remember the Cold War days, when Turkey was the place from where NATO/US bases threatened Russia and the city of Odessa, where I grew up, from the south. Today’s Turkey signed the Turkish Stream agreement with Russia and is in line for ascension into SCO. One of the latest occurrences: when Ukraine announced their US sponsors were building LNG terminal in Odessa to replace Russian gas, Turkey that controls the straits announced they won’t let US tankers into the Black Sea.

Meanwhile in Greece: after winning the Greek elections, the Syriza party already announced that they would consider exiting NATO and EU. I said in my recent LadaRayLive video about Turkish Stream and Greek elections (see link above) that Cyprus would follow Greece, should Greece decide to exit EU (and NATO). Interesting news crossed the wires from Zerohedge. Cyprus, reportedly, has offered its territory for a Russian navy base. The strategic importance of such location cannot be underestimated.

France is being threatened by the US repeatedly because the French are trying to break the mold and serve as a bridge between Russia and the West. See related articles: Who Benefits from the Death of the French Oil Giant Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie? and Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine and How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates.

US manages to keep Angela Merkel of Germany in line, but the German people are not fooled. The latest trip to Kiev and Moscow by Merkel and Hollande are a signal of EU’s dissent as well. Future will tell us how far this dissent will go, but it’s the beginning.

Even Israel and Saudis are starting to rebel.

It’s not going very well for Mr. Obama on the international arena, which is why his rating keeps dropping and is at an all-time low for his presidency. Meanwhile, Putin’s, already high rating, has jumped up in the past year. Putin’s general approval rating is between 83 and 88. Another recent poll showed that if presidential election were held today, 74% of Russians would have voted for Putin, which is a record number. In 2012 almost 64% voted for Putin, in 2004 – 68%.

Seems like all Obama is doing lately is scrambling to catch-up to Putin all over the world. Putin goes to Cuba – several months later Obama announces that 50 years of anti-Cuban sanctions have been an epic fail and that US needs to re-establish relations with Cuba (check out my articles about Cuba and Putin’s trip to Latin America on this blog). For years, Russia has been working with Iran, lessening the impact of Western sanctions and brokering various agreements between Iran and the West. Suddenly, Obama remembers that anti-Iran sanctions are also a fail and announces that Iran, after all, does have the right to nuclear energy.

Putin recently went to India, signing $20bln worth of trade agreements. Barely a few weeks later, Obama followed in Putin’s tracks. He tried to convince India to leave the BRICS, offering some perks that weren’t fully disclosed.

Signs are important. A red carpet was rolled out for Obama in India. But as Obama descended from his plane, his tank-like limo drove onto the red carpet and blocked Obama’s path. To shake hands both Obama and Indian president had to walk around the limo.

Later, Obama watched a military parade in his honor, while chewing gum, which Indians took as an insult. They should have pitied him instead as chewing gum actually denotes discomfort and nervousness.

I can certainly see why Obama had felt nervous while watching that military parade. For one, Indians were demonstrating rockets, tanks and other serious military hardware. The polite Indians would always make their guest welcome, but in this case, this demo of the Indian military power was no doubt meant as a subtle (well, not so subtle, perhaps) hint not to try anything funny as India would be capable of defending itself. But the clincher was that Indians made Obama sit through the parade filled with latest Russian technology recently purchased by India. Anyone would start chewing gum at such humiliation!

After Obama’s visit to India, China issued a rare official warning to India that they shouldn’t get too close to the US and that they should stick with their BRICS friends. China is obviously acting here on behalf of other BRICS countries. But in reality, China needn’t worry. US won’t get anywhere with India. Same goes for Iran and Cuba.

For all these countries US overtures are too little too late. These jerky moves by Obama denote desperation and admission of the fact that power is slipping away from the world hegemon wannabe.

In the very beginning of 2014 I predicted that US getting involved in Ukraine and orchestrating the illegal nazi coup in Kiev would not get them anywhere long-term. I said that they already lost, but they don’t know it yet. Unfortunately, the energy that is clearly set in stone in the cosmic sense; in other words, something I can clearly see as already manifested as a mystical futurist, takes a long time to play out in 3D. 3D is the three-dimensional reality of the physical dimension in which humanity exists. Therefore, what was clearly visible to me since February 2014, is only now starting to manifest in the physical reality.

I also said that at this time of massive Earth Shift and re-building of the entire human econo-political system, smaller countries and countries that are in-between (the ones whose allegiances could be divided) could benefit by negotiating preferential deals with both sides. It’s sort of like children of divorced parents, who can get twice the presents and ice cream from both. But such things only go so far. At some point everyone will have to decide which way they go.

As to India, I hear my Indian friends saying that Russia is their most loyal friend that had proven time and again their friendship. Therefore, there is no question in their mind which way to go.

Incidentally, FM of India has met with FMs of China and Russia in Beijing to discuss their common affairs, following Obama’s visit to New Delhi. Link to press conference in Chinese and Russian. Translating from the diplomatic tongue it means: “Sure, we met with Obama, but it was all for show. We are with you all the way, rest assured.”

Neither Indians, nor Iranians or Cubans, not to mention Greeks, Italians, Kazakhs, South Americans and Chinese have any illusions about the US. They know very well who their friend is, and who isn’t. When I traveled in Asia in the early 2000, I was amazed at how people felt towards the US in countries such as Malaysia. The past 12 years and latest Malaysia Airlines false flags only reinforced their opinion.

This information is diligently suppressed in the West, but the rest of the world understands very well that it was US, together with its vassals, who orchestrated the bloody nazi coup in Kiev for the purpose of destroying Ukraine, destabilizing Russia and EU, and in order to put a wedge between Russia and EU (for details see my 2014 articles about Ukraine and PREDICTIONS).

People don’t buy the official US lies. The old US playbook has stopped working.

So, Mr. Obama, as they say in Russia, don’t dig a grave for someone else – you’ll fall in it yourself.

Weakness or Cunning? Why US decided to End 50-Year Standoff with Cuba Now

Breaking news: US president Obama announced that he was lifting some of the 50-year-old sanctions against Cuba, using his executive powers – only Congress can lift embargo completely. An exchange of prisoners has taken place, certain business and travel restrictions to Cuba are expected to be lifted. Obama announced that it’s time to normalize relations between the two countries. The Miami anti-Cuban lobby is up in arms.

Various analysts have been speculating why this is happening now. Some think it’s a sign of the USA’s weakness, others believe it is to tear Cuba away from Venezuela’s influence, and to impede Cuba’s relationship development with Russia and China.

As you know, I have been to Cuba years ago, when embargo was in full swing. You can find 2 interviews on the INTERVIEWS page, where I talk about some of my Cuban experiences. I also wrote about Cuba in: New Predictions! Putin Goes to Latin America: US Creates Wars – Russia Extends a Hand of Cooperation.

The US government must have read this last article of mine and felt ashamed of its behavior. No, not really…

But in all seriousness, here is why a sudden warming towards Cuba. In my view, it’s both weakness and cunning at the same time.

Why it is weakness: US is conducting an unprecedented and unheard off previously in scale attack on Russia (economic, monetary, political and proxy-military via third parties). More on that in Paul Craig Roberts interview.

Meanwhile, US also has to juggle other countries such as China, Turkey and India, which are slowly distancing themselves from the US. Venezuela is next on the list of US sanctions. Latin America is very anti-American and leaning more and more left, including even Mexico, the long-term US vassal. Russia recently had a very productive set of agreements signed with Turkey (Russian gas, building new pipeline, building a number of nuclear power stations). Putin just returned from India, also with nearly $100bln worth of trade agreements. I wrote many times this past year about massive agreements with China. More and more large economies are transitioning to bilateral trade outside of the dollar.

Power is slipping away from the US.

In this situation, Cuba is one front too many on which to fight. If US makes up with Cuba, they are hoping they can pull Cuba into their sphere of influence, or at least neutralize Cuba by seducing those poor people with flashy nothings. This is where the cunning part comes in.

Why it’s cunning: Russia, which is being surrounded by NATO/US military bases that are encroaching on Russia’s borders, is considering establishing a navy base in Cuba. China also signed a number of trade and economic agreements with this ‘imprisoned island’ as Kennedy would say (my only question is: imprisoned by whom?). Anti-US Venezuela presently is the biggest supporter and donor of the Cuban economy. The situation is dicey for the US. Cuba is located too close to US shores for comfort.

Russia and Turkey have agreed on a large number of economic and political agreements, which are bound to get them closer to each other (in perspective, SCO membership for Turkey, which also gets them closer to China). Turkey, having been slighted by the EU’s long-term refusal to admit it into the union, has been looking more and more East. Turkey has also been a reluctant participant in NATO. US has been putting enormous pressure on Turkey and president Erdogan to act in the interests of the US and NATO in the region.

For example, I have no doubt that recent color revolution attempt in Turkey (timed right before 2014 presidential elections) was US organized in order to attempt unseating, or at least to scare Erdogan. The result was the opposite – the moment Erdogan was re-elected, he started the process of getting closer to Russia. Looks like Erdogan also had no doubt who was behind the almost color revolution. It appears Turkey is looking for ways to weaken its dependence, and eventually to leave NATO. As I said on different occasions in similar situations – such exodus will only be possible when US weakens sufficiently.

The reason I talk about Turkey when I should be talking about Cuba is geopolitics, plain and simple. Look at the map. In terms of geopolitical position and value, Turkey is to Russia what Cuba is to the US.

Many of my readers know that I grew up in Odessa, USSR. Odessa is located right across from Turkey, on the Black Sea coast. Since I was a child I heard about captured NATO spies attempting to cross into Russia underwater from the Turkish side. The beautiful beaches in Odessa were dotted with border patrol watch towers. It was always expected that some kind of US/NATO threat would come from the other side of the Black Sea, which was full of NATO bases.

As some readers may remember (this was a little before my time, but I heard enough stories), in 1962 the US/NATO placed nuclear missiles in Turkey, targeting USSR, and specifically the city I was to grow up in – Odessa. Khrushchev and USSR responded by saying they were placing missiles in Cuba, which is known as the Cuban Missile Crisis. Of course, the US history books and MSM lie by twisting the events in such a way as to make it seem it was Khrushchev who initiated the missile crisis. However, every serious historian, in the US as well, will know it was the other way around.

Of course, the Cuban Missile Crisis was extinguished as soon as US removed its nuclear missiles from Turkey. Consequently, USSR cancelled the quid pro quo deployment of its missiles to Cuba. American MSM and history books will make you believe it was a great victory of the US government and an achievement due to Kennedy’s/USA’s tough stance on Russia. From that twisted propaganda point of view, the contemporary US politicians make an equally twisted conclusion that US must continue being tough on Russia. As an example, see the new anti-Russian US Congress resolution allowing Obama to tighten sanctions against Russia.

Just look at this brilliant logic! While Obama admits that sanctions didn’t work on Cuba, doing more harm than good – at the same time, miraculously, these same sanctions will somehow work on Russia!

I have a better solution for the US: 1. stop bullying the entire world; 2. lose your superiority complex, which in fact is severe inferiority complex – and conflicts you create globally will start dissipating all by themselves.

Now you know why I was talking about Turkey. Cuba and Turkey are interconnected geopolitically. In 2014, as US/NATO/EU were concentrating on the destruction of Ukraine, Putin/Russia were shoring up allies in Latin America, China, Central Asia and Turkey. Another hidden victory of Putin is Azerbaijan. Putin brokered a new truce between Armenia and Azerbaijan, averting bloodshed in the disputed Nagorny Karabakh and potential color revolution in Armenia. Azerbaijan is a big factor for Turkey’s swing towards Russia. Basically, very quietly, US just lost influence over Azerbaijani oil and gas, and at least began losing Turkey.

Now that Turkey is leaning towards Russia and China, US is attempting to rebalance the situation by tempting Cuba to join the US sphere of influence. Wouldn’t that be ironic? I personally don’t think it will go anywhere. I know Cubans; I also know Russians, Venezuelans and Chinese. I know Americans too – perhaps even better.

That said, we are entering an era of very complex, multi-move geopolitical chess matches. The small, poor and in-between countries, the ‘swing vote’ so to speak, is where a lot of geopolitical games will be concentrating. Every player will try to get them on their side. Such countries can benefit tremendously in the global repositioning of power – if they are smart.

This kind of global geopolitical situation is a sure sign of the collapse of the old US-dominated uni-polar world. US empire is weakening, albeit slowly.

My assessment: I think US started using smarter advisors compared to those they used for the Kiev coup and Ukraine. But not smart enough.

It will be great if embargo is lifted and Cuba can start breathing easier! That said, Cubans, I hope you don’t forget who you are and I hope you remember you aren’t for sale!
