Friends, once or twice a month I try to make an article or two of the ones I publish on LADA RAY PATREON, free for my FuturisTrendcast followers! This is my most recent piece, from yesterday – reposted in full.
Once the Russian No.1 figure skater, 15-year-old Kamila Valieva, the first woman ever to land a quad in the Olympics and the highest ever scored woman in figure skating history, won gold in Beijing in the team event, they pulled out a rabbit out of a hat.
I predicted last year that they will try to do something to disrupt the Olympics and to hurt either Russia or China, or both. The Kazakhstan color revolution failed and Russia turned lemons into lemonade. Russia was again doing too well, despite the odds! That required punishment, vilification and humiliation, from the West’s point of view.
This happened exactly after the breakthrough Putin-Xi meeting in Beijing, where over 30 deals were signed and discussed, many of which will change the balance of power in the world. It also happened when it became clear the West failed to push Ukraine and Russia into a hot war against each other. Moreover, it became clear the US/UK/NATO failed to intimidate and put Russia on her knees – just the opposite. Russia brokered a peace deal in Kazakhstan, ending the Kazakh color revolution, which was supposed to overshadow Beijing Olympics together with Ukraine-Russia war, and put a rift between Russia and China. This whole dark scheme of the West was cancelled by Russia’s swift and smart actions.
Instead what followed was an even closer integration on all levels of Russia and Belarus. But wait, even Kazakhstan now wants to integrate, having learned the dangers of its failed ‘multivector’ policies first hand. This yet again is a total defeat of the West’s dark agenda!
Moreover, Russia is making strides in Latin America, very close to the USA’s backyard, signaling yet another defeat of the US politics of intimidation and deceit.
Both US and their agents in WADA, IOC and MSM began looking for victims to punish Russia for all these breakthroughs, and why look anywhere far if you have a perfect candidate right there! Kamila Valieva, a brilliant 15-year-old skater, one of the most high-profile athletes at the Beijing Games 2022!
Experts have already come out to say that it’s strange how late and sudden was the supposed ‘discovery’ that one of Valieva’s DECEMBER 2021 samples ‘contained a banned substance.’ The whole thing was strangely rushed, the name of athlete was quickly leaked to the press and the whole case was made sure to be as huge and public of a scandal as possible.
The only conclusion we can make is that they had to hastily go back and contaminate one of her samples, in order to have a new pretext to hurt Russia. Russian Olympic Committee said that Valieva was tested multiple times throughout December, as well as before and after in many countries, including Beijing, where she was for another competition, and all samples came back negative. Therefore, she is innocent.
Valieva’s suspension was overturned, but IOC came in and demanded to reverse the decision in order to slap the suspension back on.
They do not care that Valieva is a MINOR, HER NAME WAS LEAKED TO THE PRESS, ALTHOUGH THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW! They do not care that they are breaking the destiny and career of one of the most talented athletes on the planet. They do not care that a young innocent girl’s name is smeared, her heart and life damaged.
Russia is already under sanctions and team Russia can only perform under the name ROC. The best and brightest stars of the Russian Olympic team have all been banned, humiliated, and culled, falsely accused of doping, while Anglo-American and EU athletes dope freely without recourse. The Russian anthem and flag are not allowed at the games.
This open and deliberate discrimination doesn’t stop Russian athletes from earning a giant amount of medals, and Valieva is one of the big favorites.
I loved figure skating all my life, I grew up on it and gymnastics. But I have not watched a minute of this and previous several Olympics.
I BOYCOTT THE OLYMPICS!
I predicted back in 2016 this would happen and that Russian athletes would be used as victims and sacrificial lambs in West’s mission to hurt and damage, and worse yet, to delete Russia from the map! And to eliminate Putin, whom they are mortally afraid of! Since none of their devilish schemes worked they are hurting the young and innocent to get their dark agenda’s way.
I said since 2016:
RUSSIA SHOULD STOP PARTICIPATING IN OLYMPICS, STOP VALIDATING AND GIVING POWER TO THOSE WHO WILL ONLY MISUSE THAT POWER AGAINST RUSSIA! STOP GIVING THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT! START YOUR OWN GAMES!
It’s very very hard, it’s unfair and it’s a long road, which will make many people confused and unhappy. But there is no other way. The whole IOC, WADA and other sports institutions are completely infested with dark Western assets pushing the US/UK anti-Russia and anti-China agenda. They need a giant purge or simply being disbanded, so the new and more equitable structures could be built in their place!
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the Anti-Doping Rules Violations report for 2016 featuring 1,595 confirmed doping cases involving athletes representing 117 countries.
WORST DOPING VIOLATORS 2016 – OFFICIAL WADA REPORT!
India and Russia are in 6th position.
And this result is considering the wholesale war against Russian sport and fabricated doping accusations against Russian athletes! This also is considering the fact that Russian athletes have been on average tested 6 to 10 times more that anyone else! I wonder what the results would have been if US, Australian, French and other athletes would have been tested equally as frequently!
This one is especially nauseating – just imagine the depth of corruption and fallacy in the WEST!
Do you want to see what it looks like when Russians get really, really, really pissed? It looks like this: Russians come in and win! And then they sing their national anthem despite all the silly bans by IOC and WADA! Russian anthem by Team Russia at 3:11 :
They sang it later again in the team bus.
This video at 4:10 onward: Team Russia sings anthem after winning gold in PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, followed by the bus performance, followed by the locker room celebration:
This is why hockey is one of the few team sports calibrating at 200 – COURAGE(many team sports, such as football/soccer, baseball, basketball and American football calibrate below 200).
You ask what’s so special about singing Russian national anthem by the winning team? In a highly and openly politicized move, it is banned by IOC, together with the Russian flag. Moreover, IOC even stiffed Russian athletes for the earlier promised participation in the closing ceremony with the Russian flag and in Russian colors.
And what did I predict? Exactly that: IOC would stiff Russia for the closing ceremony with the Russian flag… And here it is!
So… after all that noise and accusations, after all the threats and humiliation attempts, Russians clenched TWO most prestigious Winter Olympics medals. Women’s figure skating gold (plus silver, of course), and for encore, the highest valued of all — hockey gold.
Quick karma for Canada and US? Hockey is Canada’s most popular sport, but it was in fact Canada who was the biggest instigator (together with US and UK) of the 200% politically motivated Russian doping scandal. McLaren, the author of the infamous ‘independent’ WADA report, lives in Canada; the bipolar ex-RUSADA chief and main ‘witness’ against Russia has fled to and settled in Canada.
Enter the Winter Olympics’ most prestigious men’s hockey competition: US was booted out after losing to Russia 0:4 in quarter finals, and Canada, who won gold 3 times in the last 4 Olympics, including Russian Sochi Olympics 2014, got a pretty humiliating bronze, after losing to the upstart Germany.
Meanwhile Russia last won Olympic hockey gold in 1992, just after the collapse of the USSR, when the team also competed without anthem and flag. That was Russia’s 8th hockey gold. Russia now ties with Canada for 9 Olympic men’s hockey golds.
Russian Anthem — one more time! This time, properly!
Putin’s New Year 2018 Address, The chime of the Kremlin Kuranti, followed by anthem:
With lyrics (Rus – Eng):
Russian FM Lavrov: Russian Olympic ban is part of an unfair competition, since US cannot win honestly any more.
Lavrov is echoing what I’ve been saying all along: US is fighting the inevitable — the Great Earth Shift and Russia The Great Balancer, rebalancing the world away from the West. The Olympic ban is one of the ongoing attempts to slow down and sabotage Russia’s Earth Shifting and rebalancing work.

PyeongChang 2018 Olympics: My Predictions Coming 200% True!
Let’s begin with the fact that my predictions as to how these Olympics will be developing for the Russian team are coming true. I said that they’ll find ways to make every Russian’s life at the Olympics hell, and they’ll find ways to announce someone was doping, to compromise and destroy any chances for redemption.
The only apt comparison I can come up for this is that of a starving and wounded gladiator, with one arm tied behind his back, trying to fight a healthy, well equipped and cunning adversary, who has the usage of both arms and a full choice of weapons.
Russian curler Krushelnitsky, winner of the bronze medal together with his wife and partner, was set up for doping in order to make the rest of Russian team look bad and keep the scandal alive. As if it’s not entirely clear that of all sports in existence, curling is the one benefiting least of any doping. Not to mention the minute dose discovered in his system, which speaks of a one time sabotage. Not to mention the fact that the old Soviet heart restorative Meldonat (Meldonium) isn’t even a drug but an innocent supplement. It has to be added that curling is NOT a sport known in Russia, and so winning bronze in such a new for Russians sport was a feat in itself, making the good-looking Krushelnitsky and his wife, dubbed ‘Mr and Mrs Smith,’ instant icons. It appears the sabotage was well targeted.
The team is completely beheaded, as ALL CLEAN TOP CHAMPIONS, especially in medal rich sports such as skiing and speed skating, as well as figure stating, bobsled and all others, have been kicked out without any explanation. Here’s your explanation for all those medals won by Norway! The second and third tier ‘asthma sufferer’ skiers from Norway are suddenly favorites. Per some reports, the Norway skiing team brought with them to the Olympics 6000 (!!!) doses of asthma medicine (also known as doping), fully authorized as a ‘medical’ exception by IOC and WADA.
Russian coaches and support/tech staff aren’t allowed at the Games, which means that in most cases young and inexperienced junior Russian athletes have to do everything themselves. In the highly involved technical sports (bobsled, skeleton, skiing), where specific expertise is needed, these 18 and 20 year olds cannot rely on anyone’s support, and are deprived of sleep as a result of working for 3 or 4 people just to get ready for competition. Other teams, of course, brought with them all the technical support staff they needed. Very fair competition, all within the spirit of the Olympics, isn’t it?
Russian team has been slashed to the bone, only 160 or so allowed to compete, most young and inexperienced. And despite that, they still managed to win QUITE A FEW medals!
Russian athletes are constantly provoked and baited by MSM and various provocateurs to say publicly what country they are from — and if you can believe it, they are not allowed to say they are from Team Russia, nor are they allowed Russian anthem or colors in any shape of form. A punishment would await them personally, and entire team, should they slip up.
It’s developing just as I’d warned!
This is the beginning. More of this saga with predetermined outcome to come! Just wait till you see the mockery they are trying to make out the closing ceremony: first they say they’ll let Russians take part in the closing ceremony under the Russian flag, then they say they won’t because Russians broke the rules. I am personally boycotting it all the way. And I sincerely hope NO Russian attends that spectacle! Seriously, if I were Russians, I’d leave immediately after the last competition is over!
Meanwhile, despite all this incredible pressure and sabotage, despite all the odds, Russians continue winning medals, 13 as of yesterday, but we are expecting more today and tomorrow, including some gold.
There are many, many, many such headlines and articles all over!
Meanwhile, Russian men’s hockey team is also forced to compete without flag or county name on their uniforms, and they have been even forced to take down their name, ‘Red Machine.’ Despite that, Russians won 4:0 against US. Having lost to Russia, the US men’s hockey team is out – perhaps that’s the explanation for so much venom in that title. We know that the US coach was so mad he ordered his players to physically attack and harm Russian players (caught on camera giving these instructions).
And just recently today Russian team beat Norway 6:1, thus advancing to semi-finals, where they’ll play against Czechs.
Russia vs. Norway, men’s hockey, Feb 22, 2018. Score: 6:1 – all winning goals:
You all know my view: Russia should have boycotted these 2018 Winter Olympics outright. Instead, Russia should be focusing very actively on building a new world sports order — the one reflecting the Great Earth Shift. But as I’ve been predicting since 2015-16, there are too many other important fires to put out and things to accomplish first. Pity, sport is always such a lagging indicator of change.
In addition to that, there are many intertwined interests within the sports hierarchy in Russia, as in many other countries. These interests won’t let it go that easily. And again, all I can say to that, it’s a pity.
I have said that in my opinion Russia should leave this incredibly politically engaged and rotten system. It should be boycotted by Russia outright. However, the rationale given by the Russian athletes and their coaches is that if Russia boycotts 2018 Olympics altogether, this will be an excuse to throw Russia out of international sports and pretend Russian sport doesn’t exist once and for all. This is the development eagerly awaited by the West and Dark State, in order to prove that Russia indeed is isolated. ‘Russia is isolated and its economy is torn to shreds’ has been the narrative of the Dark State and their pointpersons, Obama, Clinton and almost everyone else in the US establishment since 2014. To their dismay, it proved impossible to isolate Russia either politically or economically. On the contrary, Russia’s and Putin’s outreach and reputation have grown by leaps and bounds since.
The Big sport and Olympics turned out to be the only fronts on which such isolation may have succeeded due to the WADA/IOC position. It also appears, some countries in many sports may be eagerly hoping for such development — and these are the countries who can’t win if Russia is still present. Sounds pretty disgusting and not very sporting, doesn’t it?
I can see how what Russian athletes and coaches suggest can be true. In the past 25 years, since the collapse of the USSR, there were many such malicious sabotage attempts. I’ve seen them with my own eyes, and it previously caused me to boycott the Olympics from 2002 till 2008.
To be precise, everyone at #PyeongChang2018 Olympics and generally in Western-dominated sport pretends there is no Team Russia. There is the so-called ‘OAR,’ which is the abbreviation for the ‘Olympic Athlete from Russia.’ But YOU ALL KNOW WHAT THE OAR FLAG IS, DON’T YOU?
The Olympic movement is slowly but surely going down the drain, together with the rest of the old world order (aka, Western-dominated NWO). Perhaps it’s good riddance?
Both N. Korea and S. Korea have been in the news a lot lately. Below is an exclusive and very educational Russian look at N. Korea. And there is a S. Korea bonus below as well.
The video report below comes with Eng subs. Several things struck me in it: 1. Don’t think N. Korea is a poor and backwards country, it does have over 3 thousand years of history, 2. Don’t think it’s that communist, 3. Don’t think N. Koreans are afraid of nuclear war. Why not? Find out:
The world’s super-bully USA almost succeeded in igniting a nuclear war with N. Korea, and this war was stopped only due to Russian, Chinese and S. Korean diplomacy. Meanwhile, S. Korea made valiant strides to reconcile with it northern half to avoid nasty surprises during the Games. The host of the PyeongChang2018 Winter Olympics made a gesture of good will and invited N. Koreans to participate. N. Korean athletes were invited to march together with S. Korean team during the Opening Ceremony and N. Koreans cheerleaders will participate in hosting of the Games.
That’s what we want to see more of in this world: cooperation, not wars. As they say in Russia, ‘Bad peace is better than a good war.’
Meanwhile, USA intends to continue stirring trouble. Dark State puppet, VP Pence heads to S. Korean Olympics to ‘tell the truth about N. Korea.’ Great timing, as usual, USA! With US losing power all over the world, what’s left but to stir trouble.
The S. Korean Winter Olympics are to begin in less than 2 weeks. As we are approaching the event, my predictions are coming true. Even the clean Russian athletes are getting banned, even those who NEVER had a problem, not ever were implicated in any suspicion. Forget any proof of doping. Some of these athletes aren’t just clean, they are legends in their disciplines, those to whom others look up.
Exactly as I predicted, the very best are getting banned, and it is happening the very last minute.
These issues were brought up in my last major report on the topic (Dec 2017):
I said that they will make sure the best athletes, the gold medals favorites are banned, regardless of whether there are any grounds or not. I also said that only inexperienced and second-tier athletes would be allowed to compete. And then, when they are actually competing, IOC/WADA would put such crazy pressure on these inexperienced young people, testing them at all hours and preventing them from training and resting, that some would crack. The vicious agenda is to sabotage Russian athletes in order to prevent them from winning any medals, so that WADA/IOC could justify their illegal actions by saying: ‘See, we knew Russians cannot win without doping!’
IOC/WADA continue acting exactly as predicted. The latest news: a number of top Russian world and olympic champions have been banned from S. Korea Olympics.
Among them, three-time Sochi Olympics gold medalist and 6 time world champion Viktor Ahn, originally from S. Korea, a naturalized Russian citizen — banned from S. Korea Olympics by WADA and IOC. By the admission of WADA, Ahn is absolutely clean. Ahn is revered in S. Korea and millions of his home fans widely anticipated his homecoming, with tickets sold-out to all of his 2018 Olympics events. S. Koreans are in shock about Ahn’s and Russian athletes’ bans because it hurts their Games and their reputation (MORE: read my big December 2017 REPORT (link below) and CNN excerpt at the bottom).
Russian biathlon champion Anton Shipulin, and highly respected Russian skiing legend Sergey Ustyugov, also as admitted, completely clean, both have been just banned.
Russian figure skater and another potential gold medalist Ivan Bukin has been banned — no reason revealed. Overall, 7 Russian champions and leading athletes have been banned in the past few days. The IOC/WADA commented that it was not necessary for Russian athletes to have been doping in order to be banned.
What was necessary? That, WADA/IOC refused to reveal. But I’ll tell you WHAT was necessary: it was simply BEING RUSSIAN!
And just look at this mockery! Ivan Bukin’s dance partner is ALLOWED to compete in S. Korea. How, I’d like to know, if this is pairs dance? By herself, or with an imaginary partner?
In biathlon the last-minute selective bans were made in such a way so Russians would not have enough people for a mixed relay. This is yet another discipline in which Team Russia was a favorite.
Last minute bans include Russian top hockey players, also weakening the team to the degree so that to take away their winning chances.
In other words, it’s happening just as predicted! Last minute bans of the best remaining Russian athletes! Next? Round two: sabotaging and mocking Russian athletes at the Games – coming to a theater and TV screen near you!
This is the lowest of the low war against Russia and against Putin!
Who said Lord of the Flies was fiction?
As I said in my REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism,I personally will boycott these Olympics and any and all Olympics thereafter, despite the fact that I want to enjoy my favorite sport, figure skating. I understand it is still unclear whether world’s top figure skater, 18-year-old Evgenia Medvedeva, will compete. She previously indicated that she was not interested in competing without the Russian flag and anthem. Without her, figure skating loses any and all meaning.
I also very strongly believe that Russians are making a big mistake participating in these Olympics. They should have boycotted them altogether. It is necessary to start an alternative competition to this rotten system!
But as I also predicted since 2015-16, Russians won’t move a muscle until after two events: Russian elections in March and World Cup hosted by Russia this summer. Only by the autumn – end of 2018 will there be some first responses to this unprecedented sabotage and murder of the Russian sport.
South Korean Olympic organizers have expressed shock after Russia was banned from taking part in the upcoming Pyeongchang Winter Games. The absence of one of the world’s major winter sports powers from the competition adds another stress for the hosts, who are already dealing with lackluster ticket sales in the shadow of the ongoing North Korea crisis.
Lee Hee-beom, President of the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee, said in a radio interview Tuesday he did not expect the International Olympic Committee (IOC) “to go this far.” “We plan to meet with the chairman of the IOC and deliver our message. The message that it’s better to allow as many nations, as many athletes to compete,” he told South Korea’s CBS Radio.
Evgenia Medvedeva is one of several Russian athletes who indicated they may boycott the Games rather than compete as neutrals.
And a very good latest video report from RT (Jan 27, 2018) which more than once catches IOC/WADA on their lies:
P.S. Found this report in Russian, after I already pubbed this article. Adding it.
In this video a famous Russian sports commentator Guberniev echoes exactly what I’ve told you above ragarding the war on Russian sport and selective bans to make it impossible for Russians to win. He also emphasizes that it is a purely political decision and double standards galore. Also, this video showcases competions featuring some of those athletes we discussed above.
For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.
True, there may be different vantage points and different interpretations of various events, and there has always been politics and geopolitics present in any Big sport.
You hear me often talk about multidimensional truths and the fact that we are transitioning into 4D. This means that everything that was a norm in 3D is changing. I would hope though, that things like honesty, honor and common decency will remain. It saddens me greatly that in our day and age these solid old notions have almost been rendered obsolete and useless. But let me assure you, they will always remain crucially important in any dimension and in any reality.
You may not believe it, but there was a time when the Olympic sport was honest, at least it made an effort to be so. And it was at the height of the Cold War.
1972, Munich Summer Olympics. American basketball is the best in the world. In the previous 36 years the US basketball team never lost, and at that moment in history US has won 63 straight games in Olympic competitions. And no wonder. After all, basketball is an original American sport, invented by a US college professor 150 years ago, who tied two fruit baskets in a college court and offered a new sporting competition to his students.
Unexpectedly, the young Soviet basketball team makes it to the Munich Olympic finals, after beating top contenders such as Cuba, to play against the US team. Throughout the game, both USSR and US go neck to neck, at an early point the USSR even being well ahead. After that the USA gains most points back, and again both go head to head. The match is nearly over and the USA is one point ahead, after 2 penalty throws give it 2 extra points. The score is USA 50 — USSR 49. The Soviet coach takes timeout 3 seconds before the end of game.
Breaking news, sorry this has to be said before the Holiday — but it must be said. So, it turns out US Olympic committee covered up for years child abuse against girls, sometimes as young as 11 years of age, and paid off said girls and their consenting parents large amounts in exchange for promise to keep quiet and help cover up sex abuse in US Olympic sport.
Overall so far 150 girls came out with this. You’ll see in the vid below that one of them says, ‘I don’t want to be telling the court that I was penetrated by the doctor when I was 11 right in front of my mother.’
One of the most prominent victims who also apparently agreed to help cover it up for years in exchange for a rich payout is US gymnastics Olympic champion Mckayla Maroney. Her quote is equally telling, ‘I got to the top, but at a cost.’ In other words, she was ready to get sexually abused to get to the top, and she now wants sympathy for that. That’s just sick.
The almighty greed? What kills me is that these girls’ American parents mass signed off on all that and accepted the money in exchange for silence! We are talking at least 150 girls — that’s the number officially announced, probably many more that didn’t come forward YET — therefore multiply this number by at least 2! At least 300 adult parents allowed their daughters to suffer like this and kept it quiet for money!
So, let’s get this straight — the US Olympics committee is guilty of covering up a major child sex abuse ring for years within the sport. That’s just gymnastics. What about other US sports?
Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz
~ Lada Ray
As we are approaching Christmas and New Year’s, this is the last major hard-hitting, heavy-duty geopolitical article of 2017, unless something extraordinary happens in the next two weeks! As a matter of fact, I hope this is the last report about geopolitics of sport and Olympics I’ll ever write. Let’s hope, although no guarantees as the pressure on Russia will continue and intensify before Russian elections. All pretexts to exert pressure and undermine elections will be used, and all weak links will be utilized, sport being one of the most prominent such weak links. However, when weak links are exposed to light, this also gives an opportunity to fix problems. Therefore, I hope Russians are paying attention, drawing conclusions and working on solutions. What solutions? Let’s talk about it below!
I’ve packed this piece with extra energy and embedded in it some extra interesting intel! Don’t miss!
THE VICIOUS PATTERN OF OLYMPICS SABOTAGE
Notice something? Every time Olympics, whether Summer or Winter, are conducted in any Anglo-American country, it’s peace and quiet. It took me a while to recall where the 2010 Winter Games took place. Oh, that’s right: Vancouver, CA! The only thing I remember from those Olympics is that nothing, absolutely nothing happened there, except that locals were unhappy with all the money spent by authorities on the Games, rather than local projects. Following that, the 2012 Summer Olympics took place in London. Do you remember any problems, scandals, attacks or sabotage associated with those? Nope, even though there was a lot of prior noise that the Games may be targeted by terrorists. No terrorists were in sight.
The only notable thing about London Olympics was that the UK won 3rd position in team competition, pushing Russia to fourth. UK never was anywhere near 3rd before, so the result was very surprising. But no, obviously they didn’t dope! They never used the ‘home team advantage’ and were never shielded by the bought-and-paid-for WADA. Never!
And now it gets really interesting. Let’s, one by one, go over the Olympics taking place OUTSIDE the Anglo-American, and especially, outside of the ‘Western club’ sphere of influence. Spoiler! Whenever Olympics do happen outside of the Anglo-American world, it’s as if someone pulls a switch and all kinds of disasters befall the host country, or various weird events soil and sabotage the Olympics.
Let’s look at the whole pattern chronologically.
2008 – Beijing Summer Olympics, China, 08/08/08.
The famous start date, 08/08/08, was carefully chosen by the Chinese to be as auspicious and lucky as possible, based on Chinese numerology. Yet, during the ambitious global Olympic torch relay there were unprecedented attacks against the Olympic flame carried by Chinese representatives through major Western cities such as Paris and London.
Just as the spectacular Opening Ceremony — the pride of the Chinese — was unfolding at Beijing Olympic Stadium on August 8, Mikhail Saakashvili and Georgia began a full-scale military assault on tiny breakaway S. Ossetia, killing in the process several Russian peacekeepers. Prior to attack, US Sec of State Condoleezza Rice visited Georgia and gave Saakashvili the green light.
This prompted Russia’s response and the 4-day Russia’s ‘peacekeeping op’ against Georgia, resulting in Abkhazia and S. Ossetia permanently seceding from Georgia. Instead of being focused on the first ever Chinese Olympics, China’s ‘moment of glory’ was soiled by this war. Western MSM talked about Russia’s ‘attack against poor Georgia,’ not about the Games. The West ‘rallied’ and imposed that infamous first set of major ’08 sanctions against Russia, complicated also by the ongoing gas war with Ukraine.
The primary goals for this major provocation were: painting Russia as aggressor in the eyes of the Western sheeple; starting sanctions against Russia; creating animosity between parts of post-Soviet space and Russia; preventing Germany/EU and Russia from coming closer in a mutually beneficial cooperation; plus, as a bonus, attempting to create a rift between China and Russia as a consequence of the Chinese being peeved at the disruption of the Olympics. The latter point completely backfired, but the former have achieved a temporary and partial success. To fix that, the next blow was needed, that of the Kiev Maidan and coup; the pretext used would be that of Sochi Olympics.
2010 — Vancouver Winter Olympics, Canada — nothing to report, total peace and quiet on the western front.
2012 — London Summer Olympics, UK — nothing to report, except a disproportionate number of completely unexpected wins by the UK team (and all Anglo-American teams!) vs. an incredibly large number of equally strange near misses of gold medals by Russian athletes who were favorites. This strange motherload of… ahem… ahem… ‘coincidences’ pushed the UK team to 3rd team placement and pushed Russia out of top 3 into 4th.
THE MOTHERLOAD OF ALL ATTACKS WAS SAVED FOR SOCHI OLYMPICS!
2014 — Sochi Winter Olympics, Russia.
As a private observation I want to say that the organization of the Sochi Games was spectacular, the venue was unique and gorgeous and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies were out of this world. I loved the lavish Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony, but I thought the Sochi Closing Ceremony was the coolest.
Sochi Closing Ceremony — The Sky Ship
Sochi Closing Ceremony — The most heartfelt moment, giant Mishka the Mascot sheds final tear after blowing out the Olympic flame. This was a reminder of the grandfather of the Sochi Mishka, and the famous moment when the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics Mishka shed his tear, before flying into the sky. Per eyewitnesses, everyone at the Luzhniki Olympic stadium cried back then.
Efforts to compromise Russia and disrupt Sochi Olympics:
1. Before the Olympics there was a storm of accusations in Western MSM that Sochi wasn’t ready, complete with falsified and outdated pics and ‘evidence’ from prior years when construction was not yet complete. Of course, Sochi was ready on time and looked resplendent for the Games.
2. Russians were politically careful and even let out of jail the infamous Pussy Riot and the even more infamous Khodorkovsky, so that Western MSM couldn’t spoil Sochi events by howling about human rights violations in Russia. Pussy Riot was immediately swept up by the Clintons and flown to the US; Khodorkovsky was snatched up by Germany, and then settled in Switzerland. Disregarding their release promises, both immediately re-started their anti-Russian activity, aided by their sponsors, but with no success.
4. ALL Western leaders, except a couple of those who came as private citizens, boycotted the Sochi Opening Ceremony, to which they all received invitations. They all made a big political show of that boycott.
5. As Russia went into final preparations for the Games, Ukraine Yanukovich’s EU association trap was laid out and Kiev Maidan was deliberately instigated to begin in late 2013. The Maidan and US/EU pressure on Yanukovich continued escalating as Sochi Games opened in February 2014. As I’d revealed multiple times since the start of this blog in the beginning of 2014 (corroborated by many sources), Kiev Maidan was organized, financed and constantly re-ignited by the collective West (US, EU, etc) for the purpose of weakening and hurting Russia, and for the purpose of making Slavs hate and kill other Slavs.
The timing was chosen deliberately to coincide with Sochi Olympics (as I also explained in 2014) so that:
a. To steal the thunder moment from Russia and spoil the Games
b. Make sure Russia is tied up and cannot respond properly and timely to the Ukraine situation.
The culmination — the February 22 Kiev coup, ousting of Yanukovich and formation of illegal and blood-stained Kiev junta — all this took place in the middle of Sochi Olympics, tying Russia’s hands to do anything about it. The whole country helplessly watched as the closest to Russians people were turned into enemy right in front of their very eyes.
I also predicted at the same time in 2014 that Russia would engage in Ukraine the moment Sochi Games were over in order to save what was possible to save. And that’s what happened: Crimea seceded and re-joined Russia, and Russia began supporting Donbass. See my 2014 articles under Cat. Ukraine.
The Kiev coup, Russophobic ukro-nazis, Western MSM attacks against Russia and subsequent war against Donbass, had foreshadowed Olympics. Despite that, Sochi still managed to become one of the most memorable, exciting and successful international sporting events ever.
But that wasn’t all. Recently, in late 2017, WADA and IOC took away most Russian medals from Sochi Olympics and stripped Team Russia of its 1st place. The new escalation of the ‘Olympic Hybrid World War III’ against Russia has reached a whole new low.
UNDERMINING PUTIN BEFORE ELECTIONS,
UNSPORTING BEHAVIOR BY THE WEST
& LAST ATTEMPT TO SAVE NWO AND GLOBALISM
1. The stripping of the medals from Russian athletes and taking away Team Russia’s first place has to be construed as a vengeance by small-minded dark entities, due to the fact that Russia never bent, nor succumbed to the West’s domination. According to them, Russia was supposed to stay down forever after the devastating ’90s. They can’t forgive Russia for re-building and making strides forward, despite all attempts to break Russia’s back. Most importantly, they can’t forgive Putin for rebuilding Russia and making her stronger.
2. This is a personal attack against Vladimir Putin before Russian Elections 2018. Just like everything they do, it is deliberately timed to immediately precede Russian Elections on March 18, 2018. It is an attempt to divide Russian society and make the part of Russian society favoring sport blame Putin for the situation with Russian athletes, thus costing him votes.
Just watch the months preceding Russian Elections. You’ll clearly see that attempts at undermining Putin and sabotaging Russia will continue growing and accelerating!
I can tell you already that this isn’t going to work. But that’s where the whole viciousness and impossible darkness of the forces who orchestrate these things comes through: they know it probably won’t work, yet they still do it! Some say that these dark Western forces hope that ‘perhaps it’ll work this time,’ but this doesn’t hold water. I don’t buy it. They are not that stupid — evil and disgustingly low, yes; stupid -no.
The actual goal by these dark humans is to exact revenge against Russia, and make Russia and Russians hurt, while they gloat in their filthy caves filled with their ill-gotten riches.
3. This is also a vengeful attack against Russia for winning in Syria and saving that country from disintegration. This is part of their underhanded vengeance for destroying the ISIS/Al Nusra infrastructure and 32,000 prized militants, handpicked, trained and financed by US, EU and Saudis.
Incidentally, the new Russian intel just in. This intel suggests that US is rebuilding the ISIS terrorist army in Syria by saving some prized terrorists and re-branding them by another name.
4. Most importantly, based on her historic and karmic role, Russia the Great Balancer headed by Putin, and together with China and others, in the past 5-6 years succeeded in derailing NWO globalist plans. Russia, in alliance with others, is creating the beginnings of a new world system, countering the old Western-dominant structure. Russia continues slowly and carefully re-balancing the world away from the West, and this is what the West cannot forgive Russia.
2016 — Rio Summer Olympics, Brazil. These were the first ever Olympics for Brazil and first ever Games in S. America. They were secured for Brazil, the rising economy and along with Russia and China, a fast developing member of the BRICS, by ex-president Lula da Silva. He made a passionate plea to IOC and Brazilians proudly partied through the night when Rio was awarded 2016 Olympics. As Brazil Olympics went into its final preparation phase, a soft color revolution began, resulting in impeachment of president and Lula’s protegé, Dilma Rousseff. This was followed by investigation for corruption of both Lula and Dilma. The result was a pro-US president coming to power in Brazil.
Russian and Ukrainian athletes are friends — Rio Olympics 2016 (Russians wear red-blue-and-white uniforms, and Ukrainians light-blue-and-yellow uniforms)
The next round of Rio scandals centered around, what else (!), Russian team. Many of Russian athletes were suddenly banned. Some of these athletes already were en route to Rio, still not sure they would be allowed to compete. The lives of those who were allowed to compete in Rio were made hell, barring their access to training facilities, badgering them with constant tests at all hours of day and night, disrupting their regimes and humiliating them. Some Western athletes in Rio displayed a very unsporting behavior, giving Russians a cold shoulder and refusing to shake hands on the podium, or even mocking them in public.
Russia rented an entire multi-story building for its team in the Olympic village. As a result of bans, 1/3 of the building stood empty. The organizers bullied Russian team into giving up part of the building, thus compromising Russian team’s security and privacy.
Don’t be surprised at all this cynical persecution. After all, The Lord of the Flies was a typical Western book, now being manifested in real life.
THE DIRTY GEOPOLITICS OF TWO KOREAS & OLYMPICS MANIPULATION
S. Korea is more or less within the sphere of the US influence, BUT it is still an Asian country, which has been making strides to become more independent of the US. In order to keep S. Korea in its sphere of influence, US constantly escalates tensions with N. Korea, which then in turn threatens S. Korea with missiles. However, S. Korea really doesn’t want a war with the North. S. Koreans periodically stage rebellions against US, however meek, stating they want to resolve any differences diplomatically.
US perceives N. Korea as an extension of China and Russia. In this sick geopolitical game S. Korea is designated by the US as cannon fodder against N. Korea. Every time S. Korea strays off its prescribed role, US squeezes it to make it toe the line.
And that’s what is happening now. US is using the pretext of Olympics to humiliate and make S. Korea feel unsure of what to expect. The reputation of S. Korea and that of its Games is hanging in the balance. People are already calling PyeongChang Games ‘the worst ever.’ Many have decided to boycott them.
Another thing to take into account is that Russia’s reputation globally, and specifically in Asia, is growing by leaps and bounds, while USA’s is diminishing daily. S. Korea is trying to do business with Russia, also enlisting Russia as primary moderator and peacemaker in the Korean conflict. Additionally, N. Korea expressed on several occasions a belief that they would only trust Russians moderators, should any negotiations take place.
Trump’s constant provocations against N. Korea in the run-up to the Olympics are also designed to promote instability and insecurity during the Games. In this regard, the presence of the Russian team would serve as a guarantee of sorts that N. Korea would not fire missiles to disrupt the event. S. Koreans are convinced that Russian presence would deter such actions by the North. This is the reason S. Korea attempted to convince IOC to lift the Russian team ban.
ANGLO-AMERICANS HAVE USURPED KEY POSITIONS IN WADA AND IOC
Of course it is naive to think this is possible. IOC is over 80% staffed with Anglo-Americans. 17 seats belong to US, 12 belong to Canada, 7 or 8 each – UK and Australia, and a few others belong to various EU countries. China has a few, and entire continents, such as Africa and S. America hardly have one or two. S. Korea has one seat, if memory serves. Russia has none!
The WADA situation is even worse — practically all key positions belong to Anglo-Americans.
Now, didn’t I declare since 2014 that NWO is dead? It is dead or dying in so many ways and so many places. Putin and Russia, as well as other countries, such as China, are working on shifting the world into a different mode.
But as it turns out — not in sport! I usually say that the Big sport is a lagging indicator — it is one of the last to change. Globalists and NWO have been successfully hiding out in sport bureaucracy, IOC, WADA, FIFA and such.
Russians are paying the price for putting the sport on the back burner while dealing with more urgent and serious issues, and for playing by the rules imposed by the West. But even this status quo won’t last forever…
Will Russia the Great Balancer ever say NO? Will Russia act to change the status quo and start alternative Olympics?
RUSSIAN MINISTRY OF DEFENCE DELEGATION IN N. KOREA
Russian MoD delegation has just left N. Korea, trying to agree on some sort of compromise and de-escalate tensions between Trump and Kim Jong-un.
It’s high time for Russia to return to N. Korea! The ties with N. Korea were pretty much severed by the USSR around 1970s, when there was a disagreement between Communist Parties — N. Koreans thought Russian communists were getting too soft and too westernized (oh, the irony!).
Russia’s return to N. Korea, signified by MoD’s visit, has been pre-empted by the Russian Duma delegation’s recent visit to Pyongyang, during which Koreans reportedly conveyed that they only trusted Russia as partner and peace moderator (note — not China, N. Korea’s closest ally!).
A suggestion that N. Korea may have invited Russia to open a military base is a reasonable one. I think this would do a lot to rebalance and stabilize the region. This would also be a guarantee from a US attack against N. Korea. Even the mere talk of opening such a base will ensure that US will be careful not to attack N. Korea. (See: ‘Mars Attacks’ in Reverse! New joke about Russia, US, Putin, Trump and Mars).
This increased political and military activity by Russia in N. Korea, in view of USA’s threats and Russian athletes’ bans, is certainly not a coincidence.
S. Korea wants Russia to engage and, despite being afraid of the US, it has been making some meek steps to secure Russia’s benevolence by attempting to help re-instate Russian athletes and invite Vladimir Putin to the Olympics. I can tell you with absolute certainty that Putin of course won’t go, but maybe, just maybe, he will send someone in his stead as a gesture of good will. In this regard, note also that IOC banned Russian officials of any sort from attending the Olympics, so any invitation of Russian officials would be the host country stepping over IOC decision. I don’t know if S. Korea is brave enough to show that middle finger to Anglo-Americans.
LIST OF SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA & RUSSIAN ATHLETES
IOC ruled that Russia as a country is banned from S. Korean Olympics. Russian anthem, flag and any Russian symbols are all banned. This is a clear attack against the Russian State. It is also an ugly attempt to humiliate every Russian, no matter where he/she lives.
Russian athletes won’t be able to wear their country’s uniforms made for this occasion, and have to wear… actually, no one knowns what they’ll wear. If they win, they will have to listen to some Olympic anthem no one knows and compete under the white flag.
Athletes who may be able to compete are only those who were NOT at Sochi Olympics, which means younger and less experienced athletes. But it’s still case-by-case. Each of them will have to go through a rigorous commission and elimination process to prove that they are ‘clean.’
In other words, the West has become a brutal machine of suppression. What human rights? They now practice presumption of guilt and collective punishment for individual and unproven infractions.
Another thing I anticipate is that the lives of these poor athletes will be made hell during the Games, yet again. This already happened during Rio 2016 and during last athletic world championship. They will be woken at night before competitions for constant doping tests; they won’t be allowed to practice in peace and kept in a nervous state at all times.
The devilish plan here is to dislodge and disorient these inexperienced young people to such a degree that they would lose. Then IOC and WADA will be able to say — see, we knew it, Russians are unable to compete without doping.
Russian team is banned from participating in the opening ceremony. There is no team — each of them is supposed to be there as an individual, and they all will be referred to as ‘athletes from Russia.’
All Russian officials who usually go to the Games to cheer and support athletes, are also banned from being present at the Olympics. Russian sports minister Mutko has been banned for life. Russian Olympic Committee chair Zhukov has been expelled from IOC.
IF all these humiliating conditions by IOC and WADA are fulfilled and all Russian athletes ‘are proven clean’ throughout the Games by the IOC and WADA gestapo, then MAYBE Russians can participate in the closing ceremony under Russian flag — if said gestapo feels benevolent enough. Not only I doubt it would happen, but even if it does, I feel this is adding insult to injury.
WHY ARE RUSSIANS STILL GOING TO S. KOREA OLYMPICS?
Despite all this, the meeting of Russians Olympians unanimously decided that they wanted to go and compete.
This followed the announcement of Vladimir Putin that Russia will not boycott the Games and that athletes should decide for themselves if they are going or not. The latest I’ve heard is that Russians are hoping about 200 athletes will be allowed to compete.
Why did Putin take such stance?
This was the only reasonable thing for Putin to do. If Russia announced the official boycott of the Olympics, this would have created descent on the part of some Olympians. If such Olympians were to defect so they could still compete, a big political scandal would be blown up and the West would be happy to snatch up those ‘political martyrs’ for their purposes. Putin yet again would be branded ‘tyrant’ and ‘dictator,’ as I am hearing from some American and EU trolls whom I periodically have to ban on my blog. This could cost Putin votes and create tension in Russian society as such athletes would also have unhappy coaches, teammates, parents, friends and thousands of fans.
By allowing athletes to take responsibility for their own decisions, Putin minimized the damage.
Still it’s important to understand that Putin was deliberately put in an awkward position before elections, where no good solution could be found. Either solution has a significant downside. By allowing Russian athletes to compete, a significant part of Russian society that feels Olympics should be boycotted by Russia, was made unhappy.
In this situation every person must make individual decisions. I can tell you for sure I personally will be boycotting these Olympics and any future Olympics thereafter. But I’ll happily watch the renewed Good Will Games or any similar international events organized by Russia.
Why did the US suddenly announce that Team USA may not be going to S. Korea?
I believe this was yet another attempt to play S. Korea. It was sort of veiled threat that unless S. Korea toes the line, US will basically cancel the Games. I also detect a certain behind-the-scenes manipulation of IOC there. Moreover, this was an additional attempt — not a very bright one — at provoking N. Korea. It has to be understood that it was indeed an idle threat, which will go no further. Of course the US team will be going to S. Korea, barring some totally catastrophic events, which so far I don’t foresee.
When will Russia finally understand she cannot win when all odds are against her? When, if ever, will Russia organize alternative games?
I predicted this in my 2015-16 articles about Rio Olympics ban and Russian doping scandal. Russia and Putin won’t do anything before March 2018 Elections. After elections are over, and after Russia goes through the ordeal of hosting the 2018 World Cup, only then Russia can think about alternative Games. And that work will take years to figure out and organize. The USSR’s Good Will Games would be a great experience to draw on.
My personal opinion has always been that Russia needs to forget about Olympics and Western-dominated sports, and begin alternative sports competitions ASAP. In my opinion, Russia is wasting time. However, there are geopolitical realities and pressures some are unwilling to deal with, until it gets really bad. Only then Russia responds.
I can only say so much within the limited scope of this one report. However, I had previously touched on many other important and related issues. I strongly recommend you read my past articles on the topic, which would give you the complete picture and solid understanding:
To finalize this report, I want to tell you about a new sabotage planned by WADA and the collective West, call it Dark State (my definition), deep state, globalists or NWO. By any name, the essence remains the same.
What is happening with Football World Cup 2018? Can Russian football team be banned from competing at 2018 World Cup, while Russia is hosting the event? Will WADA force through the ultimate humiliation?
I always thought that the pride and prestige of getting to host Olympics or World Cup wasn’t worth the trouble. Big sport was always used for geopolitical gain, but lately, when one faction (the West) has gained complete control of all sports institutions, it has become a tool of ultimate globalist manipulation.
In addition, all of the Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz. Athletes are in it for future endorsements and lavish payouts, big pharma makes a killing on it, multinationals buy advertisement slots worth billions, and MSM makes a big show out of it. The Olympics business is worth $400 bln and World Cup is worth even more!
I knew from the start Russia would be targeted for humiliation if it hosted World Cup, and especially, so close to Russian Elections. Every time a country hosts a major sporting event, it makes itself vulnerable to hybrid 4D warfare, arm-twisting and ultimate manipulation. In fact, the county host is normally held hostage to the event, as I have illustrated above.
In prior years several attempts have been made to take World Cup away from Russia by trying to play the ‘Russia bribed FIFA’ card. That provocation failed completely, as it was proven that it was in fact Qatar who bribed FIFA, not Russia. But since Qatar is in bed with the US, no one tried to take next World Cup from Qatar. As a revenge for failed Russia-thrashing, FIFA chairman and all top officials were ousted with a big scandal, and one went to jail. But even the new, completely subservient to the globalists FIFA has failed to do anything about taking World Cup 2018 away from Russia.
Failing that, they switched their attentions to Russian football team, trying to implicate it in doping through WADA. If Russian football (soccer) team is banned from participating in the World Cup hosted by Russia, that would be a first, and very humiliating for the host country. That’s what this is aimed at.
Just like in the above Olympics case, the target here, first and foremost, is Vladimir Putin. The goal is to put Putin in an awkward position and make some of his election base hate him for depriving them from enjoying the Russian team play.
I have to also say that Russian football team is normally not much of a contender and they usually play weakly. They are not expected to win much and it’s hard to imagine them doping if they play so poorly. But that’s the thing. Those who plan these attacks don’t even care if what they do holds no water. They just want to weaken Putin before elections and make Russians feel humiliated. If they damage their allied countries or destroy the international sports along the way — they don’t care. In other words, the hell with the rest of the world.
Bottom line, there is a massive conspiracy and ganging up against Russia in sports.
The silver lining is that this will force Russia to eventually act. It will take some time, but eventually Russia the Great Balancer will rally and begin the necessary SHIFT in sport, just like it is doing so in other areas of international life. Eventually, WADA, IOC, FIFA, World Cup and Big sport will have to change. If they refuse to change, they will die off.

Like rice without Kimchi or football without Spain: S. Koreans on potential Russia ban from 2018 Olympics:
And how do YOU feel about this falsified anti-Russia doping scandal?
What about the legalized doping by American athletes, including world and olympic champions, who are being shielded from responsibility? How about the double and triple standards IOC, WADA and various Western-oriented countries, as well as those countries’ athletes, display towards Russian athletes?
Have the West, and humans in general, forgotten and forsaken everything the Olympics ever stood for?
What about the witch hunt against everything Russian in the West?
Disgusted yet? I am — very.
Is it time to abolish WADA, IOC and professional sports, completely taken over by the US, UK, Canada and Australia, who dictate their own rules, with no room for anyone else?
Is it time for THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT in recreation, amateur and big sports? Is it time to change how these are practiced and who benefits? Is it time to take politics, negative human ego, greed and pride out of sports?
Isn’t sport supposed to bring people together and make them soar to new heights? But the way it is practiced all it does is divide and suppress.
Is it time for Russia (of which I wrote as early as 2015) to ditch Olympics and organize alternative Games, perhaps recreating the very successful experience of the Soviet Goodwill Games?
Does the sport, the way it is practiced by most, bring out the worst in humans? Is it something that is low-calibrated and outdated?

They have so far disclosed the doping info on 4 US athletes: Rio Olympics gymnastics champion Simone Biles, Serena and Venus Williams (tennis) and Elena Delle Donne (basketball).
This is the text published on Fancy Bear site so far (info on more athletes and more countries expected):
Greetings citizens of the world. Allow us to introduce ourselves… We are Fancy Bears’ international hack team. We stand for fair play and clean sport.
We announce the start of #OpOlympics. We are going to tell you how Olympic medals are won. We hacked World Anti-Doping Agency databases and we were shocked with what we saw.
We will start with the U.S. team which has disgraced its name by tainted victories. We will also disclose exclusive information about other national Olympic teams later. Wait for sensational proof of famous athletes taking doping substances any time soon.

American Athletes Caught Doping 2016-09-13
As promised we begin our disclosures. Today we’d like to tell you about the U.S. Olympic team and their dirty methods to win.
Just before the 2016 Summer Olympics the U.S. team was reported to be one of medal favorites while being on top of the Rio medal forecast. Besides, the USA is commonly known to be always ahead of the game.
As predicted, the USA dominated the 2016 Olympics medal count with 46 gold, 37 silver, 38 bronze for 121 total. The U.S. team played well but not fair.
After detailed studying of the hacked WADA databases we figured out that dozens of American athletes had tested positive. The Rio Olympic medalists regularly used illicit strong drugs justified by certificates of approval for therapeutic use. In other words they just got their licenses for doping. This is other evidence that WADA and IOC’s Medical and Scientific Department are corrupt and deceitful.
Artistic gymnast Simone Biles is one of those American doping athletes. She is a four-time Olympic gold medalist and ten-time world gold medalist. In August 2016, she tested positive after illicit methylphenidate, a psychostimulant, was detected in her sample. Moreover, Biles had been taking amphetamine for a while, according to the leaked data.
Serena & Venus Williams
Serena Williams, world’s top tennis player, is taking oxycodone and hydromorphone (opioids), prednisone, prednisolone, and methylprednisolone as well. Her sister Venus Williams is used to take prednisone, prednisolone, triamcinolone and formoterol.
Elena Delle Donne
American basketball star Elena Delle Donne’s drug test revealed that she had also used amphetamine. In addition, since 2014 she has been taking hydrocortisone that is also classified as doping.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Today’s sport is truly contaminated while the world is unaware of a large number of American doping athletes.
We call on experts, officials and journalists to carefully review the files we have got.
In response to the leak, WADA and various Western rags, including Reuters, lashed out, calling the anonymous hackers ‘a Russian cyber-espionage group.’ What’s disturbing, the same accusatory towards Russia material was published in Indian publication: link.
WADA and a whole slew of Western publications immediately announced that all the ‘medications’ taken by above athletes were ‘in advance filed with WADA in accordance with procedures and rules.’ Simone Biles tweeted that she suffers from ADHD and has to take drugs for her condition.
Who on earth are these pathological liars kidding? I wonder. Perhaps being pathological liars (much like Hillary Clinton) is in fact THEIR CONDITION?
So, the hard, internationally banned and classified as doping drugs taken at will by US athletes are legal, while the innocuous performance placebo, a heart restorative Meldonium invented in the USSR and taken by Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova lands her a 2-year suspension! Meanwhile, the completely and entirely clean of any drugs whatsoever Russian poll vaulter Elena Isinbayeva is banned together with entire Russian team with no chance of appeal. Even more interestingly, Simone Biles, healthy like a horse, can take drugs for her ADHD (imaginary or not), while Russian Paralympians whose very physical survival depends on certain drugs, get banned for their medical condition in violation of all laws and common decency!
Let’s recall my post of August 25, 2016, where I foretold this new disclosure!
Notice that back in August I described these same two US athletes, who’re mentioned in the Fancy Bear revelations above!
Quote from my article:
This may be obvious, but here’s a rhetorical question: what’s so ‘artistic’ about the Rio ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ all-around winner Simone Biles. Sorry for bringing another strange thing up, but as a woman myself I can’t help but wonder: do women ever naturally look like this without a great deal of external help? And this girl is a young teenager! As you know, in my previous pieces on Olympics I asked the same question about another American phenom Serena Williams, commonly known as ‘the steroid sister.’
Serena Williams standing next to her closest competitor Russian Maria Sharapova. Both are world’s top tennis players on approximately the same level of fitness; both have been in sport for a long time. As they say, find the crucial difference in their appearance. Who is more likely to dope of the two? Meanwhile, Sharapova is under a 2-year ban for using the internationally recognized neutral placebo Meldonium, while Williams, who successfully evaded being tested for years, was in Rio enjoying herself. Incidentally, the reason she lost in the very first game to an obscure Ukrainian player is because this time she couldn’t risk it and stopped using steroids early on, which got her to Rio on a massive down swing.
Simone Biles, all-around ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ Rio Olympics gold medalist. Artistic, graceful and womanly are decidedly NOT the words I’d use while looking at her! This kind of result (and she is a mere teenager too!) can only be achieved through a long-term use of heavy steroids. Hmm.. Lots more could be said looking at this picture… But yes, in case you didn’t know, the US team is clean and beyond reproach, while Russians dope with over-the-counter placebo called Meldonium and should not be allowed anywhere near the ‘clean’ Olympics.
Incidentally, the persistent rumor in Rio was that US swimming team (as well as other individual sports US teams) didn’t let any WADA doping testers into their compound and chased them away with threats, if any dared to show up. Of course it was the US swimming team, with its million and a half events, that brought US MOST gold medals. Soon, they will invent twenty and ten meter events in all four strokes, so they could continue hugging podiums in the future fake Olympics. Of course it helps greatly when you ban top Russian swimmers and relentlessly mock and put down the remaining members of the Russian team. END QUOTE
On September 16 we will have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. In addition to creativity and spirituality, Pisces rules drugs, illness and recuperation, illusion and delusion, hidden truths to be revealed, addictions and endings, death and rebirth. At the eclipse all that is intensified. Full moon eclipse also signifies endings and release. This eclipse is so powerful that its action will continue for 6 months to a year to come! Therefore, expect more releases of previously concealed truths and more revelations about doping, drugs, and exposure of illusions and lies!
More revelations about US/UK/Western athletes conspiracy, unfair play and doping will continue showing up. WADA/USADA/IAAF/IOC and others will have a price to pay as Russians withdraw financing and begin litigation for damages.
At the same time, more revelations about Hillary Clinton’s real state of health will continue coming up!

9/11/16: NEW FACTS EMERGE! READ ON FOR THOSE & FOR ADDED LADA RAY INSIGHT!
It’s the ‘Belorussian conspiracy,’ as the West immediately touted it! But even if banned for their act of defiance, Belorussain athletes have already won something that no money can buy: they won the admiration of their country and they won the hearts of Russians for their bravery! And isn’t it what the TRUE spirit of Olympics supposed to be about? Too bad the TRUE spirit of sport is conspicuously absent from #Rio2016 Olympics and Paralympics.
It’s one of the most inspiring moments I’ve seen in a long time. Thanks to FuturisTrendcast contributor Nemo-Stanislav @ Stanislavs.org for this image!
Paralympic whistleblowers reported that president of Paralympic Committee, a British national and first-rate Russophobe Lord Craven (and note how well his name depicts his essence!), admitted that the overriding goal of banning Russian Paralympians was that ‘Russian flag would not fly at Rio Paralympics.’ Craven also remarked that if IOC was unable to ban entire Russian team, he was determined to finish the job.
In other words, like in the old fable about a wolf preparing to eat an innocent lamb, the only fault of Russian Paralympians was that the wolf was hungry.
Surely, there is a very good reason for any Russophobe to be afraid of the Russian flag flying at Paralympics: Russian para-athletes rose to the top very quickly and won hands down both London and Sochi Paralympics. If Russian team isn’t there, then US and UK teams are on top and medals for them become easy pickings. But as I asked before, how much are such cheat-medals worth without top para-athletes competing?
Of course, this is just a cherry on top. The real reason for banning Russian team is to destabilize Russian society by creating an element of discontent (along with other elements of discontent through sanctions, ruble and oil price drop, etc.). The ultimate goal is to hurt United Russia’s chances of winning September 18 Duma elections, thus weakening Putin’s support just over one year before Russian Presidential Elections of 2018.
But so far previous plans of the US/UK/West have backfired. So did this one.
In the absence of Russia at Rio Paralympics the Belarus team has picked up the torch, so to speak, and carried Russian flag at the opening ceremony.
Oops, so much for the ‘Russian flag not flying at Rio Paralympics.’
Way to go, BelaRUS!
ADDED: I just learned from Life.ru that Belarus Paralympians advised in advance the Belorussian President Lukashenko of their intention to bring Russian flag to the Opening Ceremony of the Rio Games, despite direct ban of Paralympic Committee. Lukashenko reportedly supported the idea: ‘If they decide to punish us, we are ready. We won’t sell out our brothers (Russians),’ said Lukashenko. The Russian flag was brought into the opening ceremony in secret by Andrey Fomochkin on his body. He unveiled the flag when Belarus team entered the Rio stadium. Belorussian papers touted Fomochkin’s act as a real man’s deed.
Newest info: Paralympic Committee confiscated Russian flag and began investigation into the incident. It already punished the Athletic Director of Belarus team Andrey Fomochkin, denying his Rio accreditation.
However, both Andrey Fomochkin and Belorussian Paralympians won something already, which no money or status can buy: they won the hearts of Russians. Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called Fomochkin a hero. Belarus government spokesman said that the country was 100% behind its athletes. There is no proof of any wrongdoing by Russian para-athletes, he added.
Meanwhile Russia is preparing a number of lawsuits and personal damages legal actions in European courts against Paralympic Committee, WADA, USADA, Lord Craven and McLaren. Russia also repeatedly said that Paralympics and WADA took the wrong turn and that they need to be reformed.
ADDED! More new details emerge: Andrey Fomochkin was only able to carry the Russian flag for 1/4 of the Rio stadium when it was taken away from him and he was banned on the spot. Too late: it was enough for a ton of pics to get taken and to flood the net! Later, one more Belarus team member’s accreditation was taken away. So far most of the team is still there, but the members brace themselves for more sanctions!
This is why I have said all along: ONLY the alternative competition and alternative games, such as Eurasian or Friendship Games will solve the problem. Or resurrect the once mega-successful Good Will Games!
But again, I must stress that the pressure on Russia will continue until after the 18th – the date of the Duma elections (see below re. my upcoming Russian Elections Earth Shift Report!).
More pics of the Russian flag carried during opening ceremony by Belarus team:

This written report includes Lada’s SPECTACULAR UZBEKISTAN picture guide. The text of the report is engaging and entertaining and the report size is very moderate, packing a lot of first rate intel and ideas in a small space – perfect for a weekend read!
The #RioOlympics are over, and #RioParalympics are about to start. But the most important result of the Games is not the spectacular wins of deserving athletes or the triumph of the spirit of friendly competition, as intended by the International Olympic Charter. No, it’s the ugly and exceptional in its viciousness hybrid war against Russia.
Russian Rio Paralympians ban: the latest
While about two-thirds of the original Russian Olympic team were at least allowed to compete in Rio, Russian Paralympic team was banned altogether. SAC, the Swiss sports arbitrage court, upheld the ban. While there is hope yet for the IOC (as Russians think), the IPC is dominated by pro-NWO, anti-Russian British/US members.
I hate to say this, but I did tell you so. They wouldn’t have let Russian paralympians off the hook once they got them. The goal is to humiliate Russia, while orchestrating a display of perceived weakness of the Russian government, timed just before the Russian Duma elections on September 18, 2016. The ultimate target is the Russian presidential election of 2018. The ultimate directive is to weaken Putin and try to sabotage his re-election. If Ukraine didn’t work, If Syria and Turkey projects failed, if oil prices, ruble sabotage and sanctions have flopped, sport is what’s left for them to work with. Sport turned out to be that proverbial final frontier in the hybrid 4D warfare against Russia.
Incidentally, Russian paralympic team won with stellar result in both London and Sochi. When some can’t win honestly, they eliminate the competition.
I have to say that Russians missed this, like they missed Ukraine. Just like in the case of Ukraine, Russians simply couldn’t fathom that anyone could stoop this low.
In the fight to preserve the failing Anglo-American Empire and what’s left of the fading ‘US full spectrum dominance’ there is simply no limit as to how low they will stoop. This has to be understood fully. Instead of abandoning the failed model and moving forward with the entire world, the lowly beings that are behind all this will fight for as long as they are allowed to get away with it; in a typical way of all bandits and criminals they’ll try to slow down the process of the collapse or take everyone down with them.
Russian PM Medvedev announced that Russia has withdrawn her financial support of WADA, for now till the end of 2016.
Russian government is also filing civil lawsuits for damages against IAAF (Intl Athletic Federation), WADA and IPC (Intl. Paralympic Committee). Individual claims for damages by each athlete are coming too.
My take on this: sure, go ahead and file lawsuits. There will be compensation, probably pretty good one. But it’ll take years and the process of paying out said compensation will be slowed down to a crawl. This is a good thing to do, since lawsuits are dreaded by any organization in the West. But this really is a stop-gap measure. It isn’t a real solution because those who did this were after something much bigger than breaking the lives of poor Russian athletes: they were after the big score in the global political game. They are attempting to prolong the very survival of the dying US Empire. What’s a trifle like a few tens, or even hundred million dollars here and there when you are in the Grand Chess Game.
During the Rio Games Russian poll vaulter Elena Isinbayeva was elected to IOC by the majority vote of the Rio Olympic athletes. This is a stunning result since the two-time Olympic champion and multiple-time world champion Isinbayeva, who never was implicated in any drug scandals and who just came off her maternity leave to return to the Olympics, is now under blanket ban by IAAF and WADA, along with all Russian track-and-field team.
Why was she elected then? Isinbayeva was indignant at the ban and she promised to sue. This was, let’s just say, a bribe of sorts to appease her, a consolation prize for one of the most famous athletes of the last few decades. This was also a small bone thrown to Russia. It is a sort of IOC’s olive branch and a way to signal that IOC is not fully condoning IAAF/IPC/WADA actions.
Since most of IOC and individual sports federations were against the blanket ban, Russians would attempt to continue working with them. The exceptions are track-and-field IAAF and the intl. heavy lifting and rowing federations, plus, partially, swimming federation. While Russians will try to work with them for a while, this again is a stop-gap measure.
I said previously that drastic moves to change the corrupt nature of the sports and Olympics will be done by Russia later, most likely after 2018. For now, Russia will be on the defensive and strictly on response mode.
Sport = the money making machine
The most important feature of today’s international sport, based on Western, and lately almost exclusively on US capitalism principles is that it is 100% profit based. Some of the numbers I’ve seen quoted (verification?) are: IOC takes in $400 bln every Olympics. IOC (and IPC in case of Paralympics) owns all the rights. Profits are shared with the host country and various industries. Pharmaceutical and sports medicine industry alone take in $100 bln. Media takes in another chunk.
Incidentally, as I predicted, Rio Olympics were quite a fiasco from the profit standpoint, among others. It has been the only Olympics of the past couple decades to lose money due to empty seats.
Please, what hogwash! No one person has such power, no matter how well-connected. How did I predict a month in advance that Rio Olympics would experience viewer boycott problems? I did so because I clearly saw where the energy was moving due to the banning of the Russia team and due to ousting of Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff and scandalous humiliation of Lula da Silva. Where you are going there you are – basic karmic law.
Read my predictions in these articles (more is in the comment section of each):
While I can believe there may have been a collusion to sell tickets at triple the price, any ticket will only sell for as much as the market will bear. Therefore, one has to be pretty stupid to ask for something no one’s willing to pay. How stupid was Patrick Hickey? I don’t think he was at all. Incidentally, he is Irish, which is significant.
My conclusion: at the very minimum, a scapegoat was needed to justify empty seats, and Patrick Hickey became such convenient scapegoat.
But there’s more. This piece of intel comes from a Russian sports journalist who has been to 13 Olympics and who knows everyone in the business: in the wake of the Russian doping scandal, he asked around who at IOC was most pro-Russian and against the blanket ban. Everyone pointed to Patrick Hickey, then Head of the European Olympics Committee. Here’s your explanation. The Hickey Rio scandal to me smells just as bad as the FIFA/Joseph Blatter scandal, or the Strauss Khan scandal. If Patrick Hickey was any younger than his 71 and had a reputation of a playboy, they’d get him through a hot Brazilian maid.
The future of Sports and Olympics: poorly built structures will crumble during the Great Earth Shift
The Olympic and Big Sport based solely on profit and lucrative endorsements is something that won’t work going forward. The same is true for every area of human earthly life, which has become corrupted or outdated.
My view is that both Olympics and Paralympics are dead, it’s just that Paralympics is more obviously dead than Olympics, which is still trying to pretend it’s business as usual and resist the inevitable. However, Olympics is an outdated 20th century structure. During this Great Earth Shift all outmoded and poorly built structures, designed to uphold the world order that existed in the 20th century, will be either completely destroyed so the new could be built in their stead, or they’ll be morphed into something better corresponding with new times. So, those who hang on to the Olympic structure – don’t. International sports competitions will remain, while the rotten structures around them will crumble. The fact that we are experiencing all these scandals is only indicative of the fact that the process is underway and it’s only the matter of time for changes to occur.
I pointed out previously that the only way to resolve this is for Russia to organize her own Eurasian Games, or Friendship Games, or to resurrect the alternative Good Will Games, while abandoning the Olympics. My prediction: Russians won’t pull the plug or make many drastic moves before 2018, it being a pivotal year in human development.
And even then, Russians will be very careful not to upset the balance too much. My opinion: Olympics are dead and should be transformed into something better and more forward-looking. Russians intend to work with IOC, because Thomas Bach and many IOC members voted against Russian ban, not allowing IAAF and Americans to dictate to them what to do. Incidentally, two Ukrainian members of IOC, who both are former Soviet Olympic champions from Kiev, voted against banning the Russian team.
Rio Olympics results and lessons
The International Olympics Committee has some redeeming values and there are quite a few members of IOC that are Russia’s friends or temporary allies. Same is true for the majority of individual international sports federations. For this reason alone about two-thirds of the Russian team were still able to compete in Rio and actually win quite a few medals, considering the severely eroded team. Russia was fourth in all-around, after US, UK and China.
I will leave aside the full analysis of the results of the top three. I’ll just briefly note that Olympics is just like a beauty pageant: best way to win is to poison your competition.
Another recipe for success is to cut to the bone, or eliminate altogether, sports in which your competitor is the strongest, such as Rhythmic Gymnastics (correct name in Russian: Artistic Gymnastics). Rhythmic Gymnastics has been cut to the very bone and only 1 team and 1 individual all-around event are allowed. Where are individual events? Why does regular Gymnastics (called in Americanese incorrectly: ‘Artistic Gymnastics’) allow individual events, while its Rhythmic sister doesn’t? You’ll be shocked how simple the answer is: in ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ US planned to achieve top result – and did, while in Rhythmic Gymnastics US is nowhere near top ten.
This may be obvious, but here’s a rhetorical question: what’s so ‘artistic’ about the Rio ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ all-around winner Simone Biles. Sorry for bringing another strange thing up, but as a woman myself I can’t help but wonder: do women ever naturally look like this without a great deal of external help? And this girl is a young teenager! As you know, in my previous pieces on Olympics I asked the same question about another American phenom Serena Williams, commonly known as ‘the steroid sister.’
Serena Williams standing next to her closest competitor Russian Maria Sharapova. Both are world’s top tennis players on approximately the same level of fitness; both have been in sport for a long time. As they say, find the crucial difference in their appearance. Who is more likely to dope of the two? Meanwhile, Sharapova is under a 2-year ban for using the internationally recognized neutral placebo Meldonium, while Williams, who successfully evaded being tested for years, was in Rio enjoying herself. Incidentally, the reason she lost in the very first game to an obscure Ukrainian player is because this time she couldn’t risk it and stopped using steroids early on, which got her to Rio on a massive down swing. When Williams lost to the Ukrainian girl, the sold out Ukrainian government and various Kiev officials were apologizing to the US for their athlete besting the famous Williams! Below, read more on how badly Kiev treats its athletes and what will come out of it pretty soon.
Simone Biles, all-around ‘Artistic Gymnastics’ Rio Olympics gold medalist. Artistic, graceful and womanly are decidedly NOT the words I’d use while looking at her! This kind of result (and she is a mere teenager too!) can only be achieved through a long-term use of heavy steroids. Hmm.. Lots more could be said looking at this picture… But yes, in case you didn’t know, the US team is clean and beyond reproach, while Russians dope with over-the-counter placebo called Meldonium and should not be allowed anywhere near the ‘clean’ Olympics.
Any doubts at all she isa woman? Simone Biles’ competitor, Russian gymnast, Rio Olympics gold, silver & bronze medalist Aliya Mustafina:
Previously, there was an attempt to eliminate wrestling from the Olympics – THE original Olympic sport! The attempt failed after an international outcry. Why wrestling had to be eliminated? Very simple: there are quite a few wrestling medals at stake and Russians usually sweep up the gold.
Incidentally, the persistent rumor in Rio was that US swimming team (as well as other individual sports US teams) didn’t let any WADA doping testers into their compound and chased them away with threats, if any dared to show up. Of course it was the US swimming team, with its million and a half events, that brought US MOST gold medals. Soon, they will invent twenty and ten meter events in all four strokes, so they could continue hugging podiums in the future fake Olympics. As an ex-competitive swimmer myself, I am officially disgusted – will have to go and shower after I finish this article. Of course it helps greatly when you ban top Russian swimmers and relentlessly mock and put down the remaining members of the Russian team. It’ll be hard to forget the disgraceful way US gold and bronze medalists refused to shake Russian silver medalist Yulia Efimova’s hand while on the podium.
I have to say that Russian athletes pulled a miracle in Rio, despite being under constant psychological pressure and attack, amid humiliation and anti-Russian hysteria. Russian teams in various sports arriving in Rio were denied entry into the Olympic Village, where Russia paid in advance for the entire building to house its team. They were forced to move from one hotel to another, without access to training facilities, awaiting the decision whether they would be let inside. The same swimmer Yulia Efimova was forced to prepare for competition in a hotel paddling pool, amidst sweaty bodies of fat tourists and screaming children! And still, Russia managed this result:
Olympic Games Rio 2016
Finally, the sure recipe for the US and UK success! Yet another great way to win is to fill to the brim the Olympic schedule with the events you are good at, but your top competitors aren’t. In other words with things that hardly are real sports in the Olympic sense, such as golf and equestrian. And make sure you have a million medals in such sports as swimming, rowing and track and field, while at the same time banning your competition – and voila! You have the double of anyone else’s medals.
But how much are such fake medals worth?
Russian and Ukrainian athletes in Rio embrace and celebrate victories together
During Rio Games, the internet got flooded with pictures of Russian and Ukrainian athletes hugging and carrying signs of friendship. Just can’t resist posting some of them, because in my view they celebrate the true spirit of Olympics, the way it should be. And they also reflect the true attitude of normal Ukrainians towards Russians:
Compare this to US swimmers’ snubbing of the Russian Efimova on the podium.
And here’s official Kiev’s reaction to all this hugging and mutual celebrating. Kiev officials branded these Ukrainian athletes ‘traitors to Ukraine.’ They threatened to pull their financing and state support. There were ugly threats of bodily harm and other hysteria. Who treats this way one’s country’s athletes? We all know that the Kiev junta is in fact Idiocracy plus. We also know that the only reason the Kiev regime is still around is because US and EU prop it up. I can tell you what the outcome of such attitude will be: many Ukrainian athletes have already moved to Russia. Now even more Ukrainian Olympians will ask for asylum and/or citizenship in Russia.
Who really is the doper?
If Russians dope and Americans are clean, why are Russians best in sports that don’t benefit from doping?
Why are Americans best at sports that benefit most from doping?
Sports that benefit greatly from doping: track and field and swimming (think Michael Phelps). Sports that don’t benefit at all from doping: rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming. These also happen to be the most beautiful sports where Russians traditionally dominate. To complete this post I thought I’d add these striking videos:
“The Aliens” Rio gold, five-time Olympic champions, plus multiple world champions Ishchenko & Romashina, synchronized swimming duo. This video is from World Champs, Kazan 2015 (Синхронное Плавание ДУЭТ ПАРЫ Россия Золото ИНОПЛАНЕТЯНЕ Ищенко Ромашина ЧМ Казань 2015)
Russian synchronized swimming team event, Rio gold (Russia dominates here for decades):
Beautiful routine compilation by Yana Kudryavtseva, considered the queen of rhythmic gymnastics. 8-time World champion and Olympic gold medalist, but only silver in Rio Olympics. She lost gold to the rising star, fellow Russian Margarita Mamun.
This is not from Olympics, but I really wanted to include this amazing sports gymnastics routine, which is a treat for the eyes. The title of this video is “Just look what these Russians are doing.”
Forgot to mention that out of 270 Russian athletes that were allowed to compete in Rio, 103 Russian athletes came home with medals!

THE CRIMEA FACTOR
New! For those who prefer to pay a set price rather than a variable donation, we now have
Russia’s Paralympians banned from competing in Rio (FULL PRESSER): The President of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Philip Carven is announcing the decision on whether Russia will be allowed to participate at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
All 200 Russian Paralympianss are banned – a decision with which they waited till last moment – for the pleasure of an executioner to inflict an extra torture on a victim, I can only assume. Only athletes with the most severe injuries or impairments imaginable compete in Paralympics, including missing legs and arms, paralysis, cerebral palsy or Down syndrome. In other words, those people who defeated insurmountable odds to survive and thrive. It seems especially diabolical to do this to such athletes.
For the full picture in this new low in the hybrid war against Russia, and on how Olympics have become an ugly proxy in the global geopolitical struggle to preserve the dying US Empire, read my complete article compilation on Olympics, doping in sport, and Brazil!
IPC (International Paralympic Committee) considers whether they should ban Russian Paralympic team from #Rio2016 Paralympic Summer Games. In other words, they waited for the very last moment to deliver this new blow.
This video by RT (Russian) says the investigation against Russian Paralympic team began ONLY after July 28, 2016 ‘independent’ WADA commission’s recommendation to ban the Russian Olympic team from Rio. The Olympics are to begin on August 5, 2016 and many athletes are already there. The whole thing has been timed so that there is no time for handicapped athletes to appeal or demand justice.
If ban against handicapped and disadvantaged athletes comes to pass, Russia threatens to sue in the International Human Rights Court.
250 Russian star athletes from the Olympic team (sports other than track-and-field) that still made it to Rio are now being sabotaged, while attempting to concentrate on their last preparations for the upcoming competition.
There is an ongoing plot to make #RioOlympics participation for clean Russian athletes as difficult as possible by crushing their spirit through relentless psychological pressure, suspicion and treating them like guinea pigs through incessant new doping tests.
Breaking news 8/1/16: #IOC flip-flops last moment on its earlier decision that each individual sport should determine whether Russian athletes are allowed to compete. IOC suddenly rules that each Russian athlete in Rio will have to be considered for participation by a panel of three judges: that’s 250+ athletes and 4 days before the start of competition.
Blatant discrimination and double standards: Russian athletes tested nearly 5400 times more than Americans (especially striking gap due to the fact that US team is more numerous than Russian)
The new info coming in: Russian athletes in Rio have been tested and retested so relentlessly that they don’t have time to train or sleep. This is part of the sabotage I’ve predicted in my original report!
And we are talking perfectly clean Russian athletes, who never failed a test in their life, or whose sport – such as gymnastics (artistic and rhythmic), synchronized swimming, diving, horse riding, etc. – doesn’t benefit from doping. Let’s also emphasize that Russians are favorites in most of these sports that don’t benefit from doping, having won ALL or the majority of gold medals in rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming.
Meanwhile, the well-known REPEAT and previously BUSTED cheats from US, UK and other countries are allowed to compete in Rio without being questioned or retested. Their respective teams are also freely enjoying Rio. Remember #MichaelPhelps and his doped-up to the brim 12 Olympic gold medals (or was it 11?)? No one ever questioned those medals; no one ever banned US team – despite Phelps proven drug use.
In other words, sadly for honest and clean athletes worldwide, the entire Olympics ‘movement’ has been turned into a complete joke.
Sorry to once more tout my horn, but I predicted all this would happen!
My advice to Russia remains: ditch the Olympics as soon as feasible and start alternative EURASIAN GAMES or FRIENDSHIP GAMES! Hopefully, after what’s happened, both Russian athletes and officials will wake up to the unpleasant reality of things and stop focusing on the wrong goals!

The modern Olympics movement was started in the end of 19th century by the French Pierre de Coubertin. Russia is presently rebalancing the severely tilted to the West world, which has become utterly imbalanced, with an unfair advantage assigned to the West, at the expense of the rest of the globe. It is fitting that an era of the West will end in the disbanding or slow dying of the Western initiative of the modern Olympics.

Russian team ban from Rio Olympics
Russia lost it’s Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) appeal on Thursday, 7/21, against an Olympic ban on its track-and-field athletes. Russians were holding their breath for the decision, still hoping for some justice from the ‘democratic’ European court. The court located in Switzerland, had some wishy-washy closing words to say: on one hand the appeal cannot be granted because the IAAF (Intl Athletic Federation) ruling is within its rules; on the other hand – how strange that IAAF and WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) waited till June to come out with allegations and issue the ban, thus leaving no time for ‘clean’ athletes to appeal before the start of Rio Olympics on August 5, 2016. The ban was upheld, nevertheless.
But it gets worse: Russia faces a potential blanket Rio 2016 ban after losing appeal against IAAF ruling on track-and-field athletes. The total number of the Russian athletes who were supposed to participate in Rio was 400 before the ban.
The entire Russian track-and-field team, except 1 – about 68 athletes in total – were banned from Rio Olympics participation, including many who never failed a drug test in their life. Why did they single out one random athlete to allow her participation in Rio? Because this one single person is chosen to put a rift within the team and underscore further just ‘how corrupt the entire team is.’
WADA/IAAF/US also tried to seduce some of the athletes to participate in Rio not under the Russian flag, but under a neutral IOC banner, basically denouncing their country. This was a clear provocation designed to create suspicion and rift within Russian society and sports community. There were no takers among track-and-field team. I guarantee if there were any takers, such athletes would have been immediately allowed to compete in Rio.
It has to be mentioned that for most athletes being at the games is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the psychological trauma of being denied that chance can break one’s life. Therefore, giving them a choice to participate at the expense of betraying their country constitutes an especially exquisite torture.
This ban includes 2-time Olympic and 7-time world champion, multiple-time world-record holder Yelena Isinbayeva. Isinbayeva, named more than once World Athlete of the Year and widely known to never take any drugs, recently came back from maternity leave in order to train hard for participation in her last Olympics. Isinbayeva is one of the best known names in the contemporary sport and she was the spokesperson for the Russian team during the CAS appeal.
Yelena Isinbayeva has been very outspoken about the injustice of the IAAF/WADA decision, and the attack on Russian athletes based on political motives. It is interesting that most world’s national athletic federations have been silent about the decision, while the retired athletes and sports bureaucrats internationallyspoke out against it.
Meanwhile, it has been announced that ten countries demanded Russian blanket ban, among these: USA, Canada, UK, Switzerland and Germany. A British competitor of Yelena Isinbayeva said that she (Isinbayeva) ‘doesn’t deserve justice because she is a heterosexual (!), and Putin supporter (!).’ Just imagine how much her competitors have hated her coming back after childbirth and how much they are afraid of her!
Yelena Isinbayeva, 2008 Beijing gold in poll vaulting, among many others.
Isinbayeva stated on her Facebook page that Rio Games would not be a real competition without Russian athletes, and athletes worldwide know it very well. Please enjoy your fake Rio medals, she said. They are just afraid of the Russian power, she added.
Yelena Isinabyeva has announced that after her ban from Rio she will be retiring, and that she and other athletes will sue WADA and IAAF.
This is where I have a problem. Russians are trying to deflect the attack at a huge disadvantage: going to European court to sue WADA, USADA and IAAF is akin to fighting your enemy with that enemy’s favorite weapon – the weapon you are not good at. Russia needs to reinvent the whole setup and use weapons Russians are good at, not their enemy. I’ve been telling them for years that they need to stop being on the defensive and learn how to do a smart offense, when necessary. The thing is that deliberately and insidiously attacking someone isn’t the Russian way. Alas, the global reality is such that this skill has to be learned and used when necessary.
Here is another quote from Independent. I quoted this UK rag once before; as we know, they really like putting their foot in their mouth – not that any of their brainwashed and zombified readers would notice. Independent quote: ‘Four-time British Olympic rowing champion Matthew Pinsent has said it would be a ‘nonsense’ if Russia was not issued with a blanket ban from the Rio Games. To ban a country outright is a huge step but given what’s apparently happened – I mean the Russians haven’t come up with any evidence to say ‘nah, nah, nah that didn’t happen’.’
I have to point out that as far as rowing goes, Russia has taken gold in many latest competitions, including 2012 UK Olympics. The British must feel really insecure, and not just when it concerns rowing (read more on that below).
In truth, it has been repeatedly pointed out that WADA report issued by the team headed by Canadian lawyer McLaren, had no real hard evidence and was based on hearsay. McLaren was confronted by RT to explain how he came up with his conclusions. In the interview, an extremely crass and tight-lipped McLaren stated dismissively that he hadn’t much time to prepare the report properly; had no time at all to contact Russian sports authorities and hear their side – and moreover, he wasn’t interested in that; and that they ‘have their sources, but they can reveal neither who they are, nor what they said.’
In other words, Russian athletes are guilty by default on the fat chance they might be proven innocent. Western democracy at work!
On Sunday, July 24, IOC (Intl Olympic Committee) is expected to reveal its decision whether the blanket ban on the entire Russian team will be executed. The coach of the Russian gymnastics team said yesterday in an interview that the situation was surreal and outrageous and that instead of protecting clean athletes, they were punishing them for something they didn’t do – a sentiment echoed by all Russian athletes. The gymnastics team would be on their scheduled flight to Rio at the time IOC will announce its decision, so that’s when they when they’ll find out their fate, the coach said. What a nice way to make their first journey to the coveted Olympics for most of these girls, isn’t it? Looks more like punishment than an achievement of their lifetime.
It’s clear that one of the ultimate goals of this entire charade is to punish Russian athletes simply for being Russian.
Meldoniy (Meldonium) scandal
The Meldoniumscandal began developing earlier this year after late last year WADA suddenly declared Meldonium to be a super-doping agent and banned it. It quickly turned out that Meldonium stayed in one’s bloodstream for months, and so, even those athletes who ended Meldonium usage immediately after the ban, tested positive months later and were promptly banned from all international competitions. WADA faced criticism for its ‘poorly researched and tested’ decision on Meldonium, but it simply shrugged off any such criticism and kept plowing on.
The most famous athlete they got on Meldonium scandal was tennis star Maria Sharapova, who, as a result, is under a 2-year playing ban, and of course, she is missing the Rio Olympics. Why it was important to get Sharapova? Along with Yelena Isinbayeva, she is the face of the Russian sport. She was the Russian flag bearer at the London Olympics, and just like Isinbayeva, she is universally loved and admired.
Maria Sharapova – the Russian team’s flag bearer, London Olympics Opening Ceremony
Let’s recall who beat Sharapova in London: Serena Williams, one of the ‘steroid sisters,’ who successfully eluded being tested for years amid persistent rumors of her and her sister’s long-term steroid usage. No one at WADA or USADA ever raised that issue nor banned the entire US team from competition.
Williams next to Sharapova: find a crucial difference in their looks
Sharapova was favorite for London Olympics gold. The international disappointment and underground discontent against the ‘steroid sister’ Serena Williams’ gold in London ran deep; doubts and protests took place – all squashed.
There was an omen during London Olympics. You may recall the surreal moment when the US flag suddenly acquired a life of its own and flew away, torn off its plank during tennis award ceremony, just as the US anthem played for Serena Williams, Sharapova being in silver position.
The kicker is this: what is really Meldonium, aka, Meldoniy or Meldonat? The Western MSM presstitutes will have you believe it’s some sort of new secret drug, used as mega-conspiracy by Sharapova and other Russians to gain an unfair advantage.
In reality, it is an innocent over-the-counter medicine anyone in Russia can buy by simply walking into a neighborhood pharmacy. What’s more, it’s a very old restorative, widely used and well-known to WADA, IOC and world sports federations since Soviet times. The issue of it being considered doping was NEVER raised before.
It was developed during USSR in Latvia, when it was still called the Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic, by a Latvian scientist. I believe it was in 1970s or early ’80s. Up till last year, when the market collapsed due to sudden ban, Meldoniy (Meldonat) was a very substantial part of Latvian export, constituting 1% of Latvian annual GDP! The reason is this: Melodoniy is taken liberally by lay users and professional athletes alike throughout the entire post-Soviet space. It is a mild and safe preparation based on herbs and natural substances, which acts as heart restorative after strenuous exercise. Meldoniy was always considered super-innocuous, therefore, world-class athletes have taken it for years, as a safe bet and in the absence of any other drugs they could use due to ever expanding WADA bans.
Since the all-out war against Russia by the West began before 2014 Sochi Olympics, it was necessary to keep finding new avenues for the ongoing attacks. Most of the previous attacks were deflected or successful counter-attacks by Russia were launched. After Ukraine, attacks on Russian economy and Russian ruble, sanctions, vilifying of Putin and various Russian officials, NATO provocations, post-Soviet space color revolutions and various ongoing lies, what remained? Russian sport. Meldoniy, which wasn’t even considered a drug by global standards, was what they decided to go after – in my view, primarily because it was used by Sharapova.
Just think about it! In the past few years, many raised hell about the difference between how Sharapova vs. Williams looked, questioning Williams’ steroid usage and the legitimacy of her win in London Olympics. Consequently, discrediting Sharapova in such public and humiliating way had an added bonus of getting Serena Williams’ main competitor out of the way before Rio, and silencing her critics.
I want to stress that it weren’t Russians who questioned Williams’ doping and wins: in their vast majority they were Americans and Brits. Therefore, it became crucial to remove Sharapova from the going, so her very presence wouldn’t be such a sore reminder of the Williams’ problem. It was especially necessary to discredit Sharapova in the eyes of her Western fans!
There you have it! Meldonium was banned because: 1. it was invented in the USSR – an indictment in itself in the West; 2. it was primarily taken by Russian athletes, many of whom would be caught in the ban; 3. it caught Sharapova in the crossfire – and she was the big prize.
When the Meldonium attack by WADA began in late 2015 – early 2016, it was hoped that it would be sufficient to push through the ban of the entire Russian Olympic team. Turned out that didn’t stick, but it created enough momentum and generated enough public opinion to produce the next rabbit out of a hat: the interview with ousted ex-Head of RUSADA (Russian Anti-Doping Agency, part of WADA) Rodchenkov, who defected to the US, where he received a fat fee and a lucrative job for his troubles, and from where he started bashing Russian authorities.
Lada’s prediction for the upcoming July 24 IOC ruling and Rio Olympics
My prediction is that IOC will not dare issue a blanket ban on the entire remaining 330 plus Russian Rio Olympic athletes because of self-preservation. Banning the entire Russian team would simply mean the end of the Olympics. Read my predictions and recommendations on that below!
They will leave it to each individual sport to ban or not, and each individual sport will NOT ban Russians.
However, there may be a sport or two which will play games, depending on how much pressure and how good of a payoff they get from US/UK. There may be bans against an individual athlete here or there, although it will be harder and harder to execute. They would also have to start banning athletes from other countries, otherwise it’ll look like a real witch hunt against Russians – which it is.
I also don’t rule out sabotage and provocations at the Olympics against Russian athletes, including by Western fans, MSM and judges. There will be – I’m sure of it! – deliberate unfair judging of the Russian athletes in Rio, and attempts to catch them, if not on doping, then on something else. Everything will be done to try and minimize the number of Russian athletes in Rio, making their time there as unpleasant as possible and minimizing the amount of medals they could win.
My prediction: Rio Olympics will be one ugly and messy farce. Read more on that below.
Let me remind you that there are two weeks left to the Rio Games and most athletes will be either in Rio or traveling to Rio by 7/24.
It also has to be noted, as correctly pointed out by that poor little UK rag Independent, that IOC Head Thomas Bach (a German) is, as they call him, ‘pro-Russian.’ This simply means that the man spent his entire lifetime encouraging sport and supporting those countries that spend a lot of resources to support the development sport, both nationally and internationally. Russia happens to be such a country. Thomas Bach and IOC have been doing some very fancy footwork for years, trying to keep the filthy paws of Anglo-Americans out of the Olympics. Only with some limited success, I might add. He is a very skilled politician – and he needs every ounce of this skill now. If he defies the US/UK aggression into his domain again, he is in grave danger.
Recall the very influential Zepp Blatter (a Swiss), who ruled FIFA for years and who was simply smeared on the wall last year after he refused to succumb to US/EU pressure and frame Russia for bribery to get World Cup 2018 hosting rights. Blatter was also accused(!) of being ‘pro-Russian’ – and that, in the eyes of the Western globalist elites is an indictment! Read the whole story in Hybrid War: The Whole Truth About Doping and Demands to Ban Russia from 2016 Summer Olympics.
As we see, it’s very dangerous to stand up to Anglo-Americans when they are going for the kill. I hope Bach’s famous political skill is sufficient to wiggle his and IOC’s way out of this tight spot.
But it gets much better!
NTV bomb: the dirty underbelly of WADA and USADA, or how to ban Russia
Today, I’ll tell you about the actual plot spearheaded by the US, to remove Russia from all international sports competitions.
В пятницу, 22 июля, в 22:30 в эфире НТВ выйдет специальный выпуск пранк-шоу «Звонок», который покажет обратную сторону олимпийского скандала.
A special edition of the show ‘Звонок’, aka, ‘The Call’ is coming on Friday, July 22. It will reveal the dirty underbelly of the Russian Olympic scandal.
Lada’s translation of NTV piece(see Russian text below or in this link, along with Vovan and Lexus photo).
Vovan (Vladimir Kuznetsov) and Lexus (Alexei Stolyarov) called the director of WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), Sir Craig Reedie, and the head of USADA (US Anti-Doping Agency) Travis Tygart back on May 28, 2016. It was USADA that initiated and spearheaded the anti-doping investigation of Russia. NTV decided to postpone airing the revelations obtained during these calls to spare the international sports bureaucrats a major embarrassment and so not to influence their previous decisions.
However, in the run-up to the fateful decision on July 24, when IOC may punish the entire Russian team, banning it from Rio Olympics, the entire secret dirty underworld will be revealed. Our viewers will hear how the Director of WADA, Sir Craig Reedie will admit that they had no proof other than the interview of Rodchenkov to New York Times. The Head of USADA Travis Tygart will confess to Vovan parading as ‘Minister of Sport of Ukraine Igor Zhdanov,’ that the ultimate objective is to remove Russia from all international competitions because ‘this is politics, my friend.’
(LR: Rodchenkov is the ousted scandalous RUSADA (Russian Anti-Doping Agency) director, who defected to the US.)
These and other details of the scandal will be revealed on July 22 at 22:30 on NTV.
Еще 28 мая пранкеры Вован (Владимир Кузнецов) и Лексус (Алексей Столяров) позвонили директору Всемирного антидопингового агентства WADA сэру Крейгу Риди и главе Американского антидопингового агентства Трэвису Тайгарту, который и выступил инициатором расследования в отношении России. Канал НТВ тогда принял решение отложить эфир из-за нежелания на тот момент нашей редакции прямо или косвенно влиять на решение спортивных международных чиновников.
Однако теперь перед судьбоносным для России решением 24 июля, которым МОК может лишить всю сборную России поездки в Рио, все тайное закулисье грязной политической борьбы станет явным. Зрители услышат, как президент WADA Крейг Риди скажет, что никаких других доказательств, кроме интервью Родченкова в The New York Times, у них не было. А глава Американского антидопингового агентства Трэвис Тайгарт рассказал пранкеру Вовану — «министру спорта Украины Игорю Жданову», что Россию нужно убрать из всех соревнований и что «это политика, мой друг».
Spies among us: What is show ‘The Call’ and who are Vovan and Lexus?
‘The Call’ consists of a high-profile telephone prank performed in front of live audience by two famous Russian pranksters and investigative journalists Vovan and Lexus. They usually pretend to be someone important, someone to whom the person on the other side can’t refuse to speak.
You may recall my mentioning Vovan and Lexus in conjunction with massive revelations and international scandals they revealed. I have translated one of their revelations of a secret collusion between Moldova and Ukraine relative to crashing the Moldova protests in ESR8. They call-pranked Belarus’s Lukashenko; multiple top bras of Ukraine; they revealed various collusions between EU, Turkey, Ukraine and Islamist terrorists. Then there was Vovan and Lexus prank call to Erdogan, where he agreed to plot against Russia with the fake Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk.
Just for kicks they pranked Elton John, pretending to be Vladimir Putin. After Putin learned that the elderly Englishman was upset, he called him personally in his usual gracious manner.
Their probably most famous prank that lasted for months was their repeated Skype interaction with Ukraine oligarch Kolomoysky, which I mention in ESR3. Among other things, Kolomoysky revealed to Lexus, pretending to be one of DNR leaders, that MH17 downing was a Ukraine pilot’s mistake. They most recently called Jamala, the Ukrainian winner of Eurovision 2016, during which conversation the unsuspecting Jamala revealed to them a secret EU plot which propelled her to the guaranteed Eurovision win, for the sole purpose of humiliating Russia. Jamala blubbed it in front of live Russian audience – of course, unbeknownst to her.
In short, these two guys have been to hell and back. They know what they are doing.
A few weeks ago, Rio Olympics organizers paraded around Rio a gorgeous jaguar – the supposed symbol of the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games. Then, something went wrong and they shot in cold blood the enslaved animal they exploited to stroke their egos. The scandal was quickly suppressed and humanity, as it so often happens, moved on, forgetting this new innocent victim of human savagery.
Therefore, we should assume that the symbol of the Rio Olympics is actually a DEAD JAGUAR. What does this tell us?
At the time of the killing of the jaguar in Brazil, a peep Tweeted me that it was a bad omen for the Rio Games. You bet it was, I tweeted back. Can’t get any more obvious than that! I also tweeted that after how they treated the poor, innocent animal and how they treated the Russian athletes, I am boycotting #RioOlympics, #IOC and #Olympics in general.
THE GEOPOLITICS OF THE OLYMPICS– history, and why Rio Olympics is targeted
I wrote about this issue several times in 2014 and 2015. Don’t make a mistake of thinking that sports is just that: athletics cum entertainment. Sport is one of the biggest and most powerful geopolitical leverages there is. Sport has been always used in big global politics and it always worked. Recall the boycott of the Moscow 1980 Olympics and USSR’s return boycott of Los Angeles 1984 Olympics. Mao’s China, once banned from Olympics, was urgently invited by the US to participate for the first time, in order to boost the numbers and to put a rift between Russia and China.
The most disgusting and disgraceful Olympics were the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games, which were full of corruption scandals. During Salt Lake City Games US and Anglo-American ‘consortium’ discredited itself utterly by mistreating other countries’ athletes, while flaunting their own. Multiple scandals revolved around medals being taken away from non-English-speaking countries and given to Americans, Canadians and Australians.
I boycotted the Olympics after that and only began watching again starting with Beijing 2008. Of course everyone knows how US and EU tried very hard to sabotage Beijing Olympics by various fake protesters jumping in front of the Olympics torch in France and UK and calls to boycott China.
That didn’t work. So, a new plot to sour the Olympics and put a rift between Russia and China was developed. It was the infamous Georgia – S. Ossetia war. Georgia attacked S. Ossetia and killed 8 Russian peacekeepers exactly during the opening ceremony in Beijing, thus forcing Russia to respond.
Incidentally, notice the number of the killed Russians: 8. According to Chinese numerology and feng shui, the number 8, resembling infinity, is considered the luckiest number. China went to great pains to secure the Olympics that began on 08/08/2008. Triple 8 is especially lucky, according to Chinese numerology. Therefore, 8 Russian peacekeepers killed on 08/08/2008 was an especially sadistically perverted message to China.
Russia was forced to start the so-called 4 day war against Georgia, aka, a ‘peace-keeping operation.’ During the Olympics all wars are supposed to cease, therefore, it was an additional deliberate affront. Both China and Russia were wise enough to see where the wind was blowing from; therefore, the ultimate plan of putting a wedge between them failed.
Fast forward to 2014 and Sochi Winter Olympics. Behold the disgusting lies that were told about Sochi, its construction process and its future! One could fill books with that dirt and calls to boycott the Sochi Olympics. In 1980 the pretext of the Afghanistan war was used to boycott the Moscow Olympics. Let’s recall that the Sochi Olympics began BEFORE Ukraine, Crimea and Donbass events took place. There was absolutely nothing for them to go on. They did try the gay angle, but that didn’t go very far. The calls to boycott the Sochi Olympics flooded from practically all Western countries not based on any facts, but JUST IN CASE.
There was a problem though. After the 1980 and 1984 fiascoes, IOC developed the new law, according to which, any country boycotting the Games is automatically banned from future participation. Neither US nor EU could afford that. Therefore, they announced that the leaders of Western countries would boycott the Sochi Opening Ceremony, to which they all were invited as a courtesy.
The only two exceptions were the king and queen of the Netherlands and President of Czechia, who attended, despite the pressure to snub Sochi. In this regard it makes one wonder how much the Malaysian Airlines/Royal-Dutch-associated MH17 plane (with mostly Dutch passengers on board) tragedy in Ukraine several months later was retaliation for the Dutch king’s disobedience. It certainly is a hell of a coincidence. (I wrote all about the MH17 conspiracy in 2014 and you can find it by searching this blog).
Those who boycotted the Sochi Opening Ceremony missed a lot. It was gorgeous, and so was the Closing Ceremony. Probably the most beautiful such ceremonies ever made. The Creative Director of the Sochi Games Konstantin Ernst was honored with the TV ‘Oscar’ equivalent for the 2014’s best show.
Since nothing else worked, the ultimate stunt was performed to spoil the Sochi Olympics: ukro-nazi Maidan and Kiev coup were executed during the Games, plunging Ukraine into chaos and turning it into a violent anti-Russian abyss on Russian borders.
Now it’s the turn of the Rio Olympics. Brazil is part of the BRICS. First, they needed to oust Dilma Rousseff, who would have never allowed such disaster to happen. The next step is to make everything associated with Brazil Olympics as unpleasant as possible, therefore souring the taste for Brazilians and guests alike.
Make no mistake: one of the goals for the whole Rio fiasco and Russian ban is to taint the Rio Olympics as part of retaliation against Dilma Rousseff and Lula da Silva for defying US and siding with Russia! Dilma’s ousting and humiliation wasn’t enough – this is a swipe directly against Lula, because Rio Games was his baby project!
Ousting the Russian team is the next step. Overall, this is part of a major, multi-prong and multi-move game to create a rift within the BRICS, with the ultimate purpose of its disintegration. The real targets here are Russia and China, but mostly Russia.
I have written many times that the balance of power on our planet was allowed in the past 25 or so years to shift too far to the West. The severely imbalanced situation is manifesting in everything, from finance, economy and culture, to language and sports. This is a disaster just waiting to happen.
I also wrote continuously over the course of the past 2 odd years how Russia and Putin extremely carefully and slowly are rebalancing the entire planet in order to make it more equitable and inclusive. While Russia and Putin, and their allies, do everything in their power to slowly and peacefully rectify the imbalance and stabilize the world, US and its allies do everything in their power to destabilize the world and harm those who, like the Atlases of old, hold the entire globe on their shoulders.
Therefore, using the logic of the West, the all-out relentless hybrid war against Russia on all fronts is perfectly justifiable (I call it 4th-Dimensional warfare: read how it works on LadaRay.info & ESR4). After all, harming and inflicting damage on others is the only way for the collapsing US Empire and fading NWO to prolong their existence.
See, the enlightened beings operate on the principle of doing no harm to others and helping those in need; heroes of our world sacrifice themselves to help others. But the leaches and criminals who took control of our planet harm others in order to survive and live another day of their miserable lives.
List of the main reasons for the Russian doping scandal and for the Russian team Rio ban
1. Discredit Russian sport – that’s obvious.
2. Create a rift in Russian society, when everyone’s blaming everyone else. Create a rift and encourage betrayal of the elites.
3. Discredit Russian government. After all, WADA report states that Russian government and FSB were behind doping – without any proof, except hearsay by those who were paid off.
Here we are coming to the mega-geopolitical Earth Shift goals:
4. Put a rift between BRICS members, and ultimately, destroy the BRICS.
Brazil, the host of the Rio Olympics is the proverbial ‘B’ in the BRICS. When ex-president of Brazil Lula da Silva secured the Rio Olympics for Brazil, it was a moment of triumph for the newly rising South American power. It all changed when the economy took a plunge, Lula and president Dilma Rousseff’s workers’ party PT lost support, and as a consequence US were given an in to execute color revolution, Dilma’s impeachment and removal from power.
The BRICS, planned as one of the counterweights for the US-centric world, was doing well when the commodities prices were high and dollar was down. This signified the rise of the natural resources based economies. The moment commodities prices were down and dollar up, the obvious weaknesses of some of the BRICS showed. In my free report Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report & Predictions I discussed why Brazil, regretfully, isn’t ready for the big leagues. In that report you’ll also find my preliminary assessment of the prospects of the BRICS.
5. Weaken and broadside Russia – the tactic used in Ukraine 2014 coup, NATO expansion, and through anti-Russian sanctions. This is the next step in the same game. By weakening and distracting Russia, by forcing her to deflect newly incoming attacks from all directions, US and its cronies seek to delay the inevitable crash of the US Empire and the West-centric world.
6. Most importantly, weaken Putin as he comes into the election year and make him arrive to the March 2018 Russian elections as vulnerable as possible.
Putin, Russia and WWIII
Their wet dream of weakening Putin won’t happen. Putin is the only person who is able to keep the situation balanced enough so that the world wouldn’t plunge into hot WWIII. And because of that Putin will continue generating massive support all over the globe.
As you know, many have predicted and continue predicting that WWIII is about to begin. Just look on YouTube and all over the internet – just about everyone everywhere is predicting WWIII any moment now.
I am the only person who has consistently, from the beginning of FuturisTrendcast in 2014, predicted that there will be no hot WWIII. I predicted the exact same thing on Lada Ray Blog in 2012. Read more in PREDICTIONS.
I have also said many times that the only reason there will be no hot WWIII is Putin and his team. Those dark entities that want to create the ultimate chaos on the planet know this truth, but of course they’ll never admit it. Instead, they’ll do everything in their power to compromise and weaken Putin and his team. If they could eliminate him, they would. But THIS they are unable to do, for a very good reason. All they can do is try to weaken Putin, create chaos around Russian borders, and attempt confusing/ distracting his electorate.
New prediction for the multi-polar world
That said, this is a temporary setback in the careful construction of the new multi-polar world. This process is unavoidable and relentless. It is pre-destined. But there are, and will be, setbacks. The wise will learn from these setbacks, correct their course and keep going.
Even a part of the Russian Olympic team being banned from Rio signals the beginning of the end of the Olympics. It signals the beginning of the end of the sport based on Western principles, as we know it.
The Earth Shift away from the West means just one thing: the old structures in everything, including the Western-sponsored Olympic movement, have to go. It has become too corrupt, too politicized, too money and ego driven.
The sport, once a competition of ability, fitness and spirit, has become an ugly mix of political agendas, double-standards, ego-maniacal pursuits, money, drugs and deception.
The Universe, aka, the reality of things, is pushing Russia to rebalance this area of human life, the same way as the other areas are being rebalanced. Russia, the Great Balancer, as usual, prefers to keep status quo for as long as possible. However, this is not possible any more.
Russia needs to own up to the changed situation and act resolutely to change the status quo according to the new reality. I firmly believe that Russia must organize the new Olympic-style movement and call it ‘Eurasian Games.’ Or call them ‘Friendship Games.’ Or how about ‘Galactic Games,’ or ‘Aquarian Games.’
These games, of course, should be open to all continents and all countries. That will send the right message.
I almost dare IOC to ban Russian team completely and for FIFA to take away the Russian hosting rights for the 2018 World Cup. That will open the Russians’ eyes and put fire under them to change the status quo.
I am a firm believer that Russia needs to withdraw completely from the Olympic movement in general. Russia needs to start a new sports movement, clean and based on different principles.
It won’t happen right away as there are too many interests locked into the Olympics and sport as it exists today. It will be hard to break the mold; it’ll be very hard financially and psychologically. So much human and financial resources have been invested in the sport and preparation for the Olympics that it will be very painful. But it must be done at one point, although this will be delayed until after 2018 due to Russia’s presidential elections in 2018.
Another reason Russia will try to delay shifting the world sport into the new era is the Football (Soccer) World Cup Russia will host in 2018 – a competition even more popular than the Olympics. I discussed in 2015 how US/EU/Brussels attacked FIFA and tried to take away the World Cup from Russia. The FIFA scandal didn’t succeed in framing Russia, but resulted in a total shakedown of FIFA and punishment of its long-time president Zepp Blatter, who refused to succumb to US/EU pressure.
The IOC and Thomas Bach are under even more pressure now to ban Russia from Olympics and from hosting various international competitions. After all, US/EU are experts at twisting hands and other types of torture.
Russia wants to host World Cup, a very prestigious event, which Russia never hosted before. Billions were invested in the infrastructure and preparations. Since US/EU didn’t succeed in 2015, they will continue attempts to frame Russia and take away the World Cup.
A very good try to make the case for ‘Russians being savages’ was made during recent European Cup in France. It was reported that 200 Ukrainian ukro-nazis were shipped into France disguised as Russian fans. These 200 individuals began staged brawls with British fans, incredibly(!) beating up over a thousand Brits. After the false flag brawl, France began deporting Russian fans, whether they were anywhere near the brawl or not. UEFA fined Russian team and threatened it with disqualification.
At the same time, Ukrainian nationals, who obviously all speak Russian, were seen and photographed(!) teaching British fans how to humiliate Russian fans by burning and stepping on the Russian flag and what insulting words to scream out to provoke them.
If any more brawls happened, the next step would have been made to take away the 2018 World Cup hosting from Russia – that was the real reason for the brawling provocations in France. It would have happened for sure IF Russian team continued in the Euro Cup. But they lost and left early. Whether they lost naturally, or on purpose so not to provoke any more problems (Russians are very mad at the team for poor performance), I think it was a safer bet anyway.
IF Russia is banned from hosting 2018 World Cup, take a wild guess who is next in line, ready to host it on moment’s notice? That’s right, it is the United Kingdom!
Why US wants to humiliate Russia through sports
Sports is an ancient archetypal yang (active, assertive, expansive, male) activity and it has much to do with self-identification and pride of any nation. Great athletes are heroes to be worshiped and looked up to. Their achievement and their art is admired and emulated by many. People want to be like their sports heroes and strive to keep up with those who are ahead. Therefore, sport is an important component of our today’s society, based on polarity and struggle of the opposites. Lots more about it explained in Hybrid War: The Whole Truth About Doping and Demands to Ban Russia from 2016 Summer Olympics.
The Putin agenda and timing: why Russian sport is attacked now?
In March 2018 Russia will have presidential elections. They want Putin to come to the elections as weakened as possible. They already know that – contrary to what Obama said – they can’t destroy Russian economy and they can’t simply damage Putin’s reputation with one of their provocation stunts such as Panama Papers leak. But what they are trying to do is slowly undermine Putin and Russia by attacking ALL areas of life from all directions simultaneously. At the same time it’s also a call to the Russian elites to betray Russia and Putin. As we have seen with the ex-head of RUSADA Rodchenkov, they sometimes succeed, albeit rarely. But even one bad apple is often enough.
Lada’s recommendation: steps Russians should take to reformat the corrupt global sport & Olympics
Here is a complete plan of how Russia should proceed! Some parts of the plan need to be executed immediately, others – as soon as politically and financially possible.
1. Stop being constantly on the defensive. Stop trying to naively use the enemy’s best weapons, which Russia isn’t as good at and which put her at a disadvantage. Develop Russia’s own long-term affirmative and forward-looking strategy, and unique assertive tools and weapons. Recall and bring back the tools and weapons Russia was always good with – those tools that brought the Russian Empire, the USSR and today’s Russia many victories and triumphs.
2. Russia would be better off withdrawing from the Olympics and from hosting World Cup 2018. It’s probably too late for Rio Olympics – the show must go on. But for 2018 World Cup it’s still possible to withdraw and have an alternative competition. That said, I believe Russia will only do that IF West succeeds in taking World Cup away from Russia. If not, the process of shifting the world of sport into a new reality will take longer, but it’ll have to be done sooner or later.
I strongly believe they won’t stop and will do absolutely everything to try and take away the World Cup. UK will be on standby to host it.
I think Russia is wasting too much energy fighting these kinds of battles. The result here is fixed and fair and just outcome isn’t possible. It is wise to withdraw and create own reality, not dependent on forces bent on squashing Russia.
3. The existing Olympic and world sport structure, developed in the West, has to be replaced with a new, healthy structure, based on fair competition, friendship and cooperation – something sport is supposed to be when it’s not used for political gain.
4. Russia needs to start working on organizing new Eurasian Games, or games under another name (see my proposed names above), to replace the tainted Olympics.
In conclusion, a word about the evolution of the Russian Olympic uniform
Here is the previous Russian Olympic uniform:
And this is Russian 2016 Rio Olympic uniform. As you’ll notice, this is the first time in modern history (after the USSR collapse) that the word ‘Russia’ is written on the uniforms in Russian: Россия.
This is important because Russia has begun asserting herself again and this is an announcement for all to see. Do you remember how during Sochi Olympics the teams were coming out for the Opening Ceremony in the order of the Russian, not Latin, alphabet – and that generated a storm of indignation in the West. How dare they use their own alphabet at their own Games! Now, these damn Russians decided to write their country’s name on their uniforms in their own language?!! That’s just not done.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, served as a proverbial red to any Russophobic Western bull. It became an aggravating factor in the attack on the Russian team.
As predicted above! They are trying to make #RioOlympics participation of clean Russian athletes as difficult as possible by crushing their spirit through relentless psychological pressure.
Breaking news 8/1/16: #IOC flip-flops last moment on its earlier decision that each individual sport should determine whether Russian athletes are allowed to compete! IOC suddenly rules that each Russian athlete in Rio will have to be considered for participation by a panel of three judges: that’s 250+ athletes and 4 days before the start of competition!
Blatant discrimination and double standards: Russian athletes tested nearly 5400 times more than Americans
The new info coming in is that Russian athletes in Rio have been tested and retested so relentlessly that they don’t have time to train or sleep! This is part of the sabotage I’ve predicted in the original report above!
And we are talking perfectly clean Russian athletes, who never failed a test in their life or whose sport doesn’t benefit from doping. Meanwhile, the well-known REPEAT cheats from US, UK and other countries are allowed to compete in Rio without being questioned or retested! More in this video:
Sorry to once more tout my horn, but I predicted all this would happen! My advice to Russia remains: ditch the Olympics as soon as feasible and start alternative EURASIAN GAMES or FRIENDSHIP GAMES! Hopefully, after what’s happened, both Russian athletes and officials will wake up to the reality of things!
For the full picture in this new low in the hybrid war against Russia, and on how Olympics have become an ugly proxy in the global geopolitical struggle to preserve the dying US Empire, read my complete article compilation on Olympics, doping in sport, and Brazil!
Per RT: The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has accused Russia of systematic doping violations and cover-ups involving Russian officials, including the sports minister. It calls for Russian athletes to be barred from competitions. Russian Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko speaks to RT over WADA claims. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/6vy8.
Video interview with Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko (with Eng translation)
The Russian Anti-Doping Agency has had its license suspended a week after the country was provisionally banned from international athletics events over a doping scandal. This is leaving the entire Russian sport in a limbo.
Notice that initially WADA was only investigating Russia, coming out from the very start with a bombshell at an international conference. They demanded very loudly a ban for the entire Russian sport, regardless of who did, or didn’t dope. But after criticism that WADA was singling out Russia for purely political reasons, they PROMPTLY added several more countries to the list of anti-doping violators. These countries were not an issue just several days ago.
Notice also that in the new ‘list’ Ukraine is also present – obviously added to deflect any accusation that it’s a payoff to Russia for Ukraine. However, the biggest by far proven doping violators, such as UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are nowhere near this list. Moreover, while this bogus list includes other countries, only Russian athletic team is being banned from competition, including athletes like Elena Isinbayeva (multi-olympic/ world champion and record golder), who had never doped.
Today’s video from RT:
Clearly, the addition of more countries to the ‘list’ is a way to camouflage what WADA is really doing: an attempt to sidetrack, broadside Russia and dampen the spirits of the Russian athletes and people. In addition it is a personal attack against the Russian Sports Minister, Vitaly Mutko, who had done a lot for the development of the Russian sport since he took office. It was very convenient for the West when Russian sports were in a shambles after the collapse of the USSR, and they wanted to keep it that way. It is very inconvenient when Russian team presents a real competition.
Considering that in our 3D world national sport is something that lifts the spirit of a nation, it is a strike against all of the Russian people, an attempt to damage their spirit and put doubt in their mind. We had already been through this after the collapse of the USSR, when the entire country felt disillusioned and depressed, thinking they did something wrong.
It never occurred to anyone that the USSR was being deliberately sabotaged and destroyed from abroad. Sure, the fact that USSR/Communist Party leaders made a huge number of mistakes and miscalculations didn’t help. But the fact remains: the deliberate act of economic, financial and PR sabotage and diversion took place to do away with the USSR with the ultimate goal to destroy Russia. In the ’90s, the sabotage and undermining of the Russian spirit continued and even intensified. It was only by the end of the ’90s – beginning of 2000s that we finally began understanding what was happening and why.
Ukraine events, anti-Russian sanctions and the Ruble sabotage last year were a part of the same hybrid war. But until now, they never dared to directly attack the Russian sport.
Soviet sport was the world’s best by far and there really was no competition. At that time no one would dare to attack Russian sport like this. But since the USSR collapse Russia let go of its influence and interests in many areas, including sport. People in the international organizations were substituted for those convenient for (and bribed by) the West. Rules and regulations were developed that favored the West. Now Russians are finding out that it’s not enough to win – it’s also who you know and how much you pay.
I know some might say: what’s so important about sport? I am personally neutral towards sport, but in this 3D reality sport is very important. It serves not only as a means to stay fit and as entertainment, but also as a means of lifting the spirit, inspiring and maintaining the pride of a nation. Sport can be a very effective geopolitical weapon as well, and it used to be (until USA and West sabotaged 1980 Moscow Olympics) a tool of peace and cooperation. If you think this is something new, no – all the above characteristics of the sport were the same two and three thousand years ago. From Mesopotamia and ancient Incas and Maya to the first Greek Olympics and medieval knights’ tournaments…
If you still think that it’s just a co-incidence having nothing to do with the hybrid war against Russia, then I can tell you that the Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu is also under attack. He’s the man who literally turned around the Russian defence and military. The attacks on Shoygu involve some bogus accusations that his daughter owns several apartments and a dacha. It sounds pitiful, I know – that’s probably because they failed to find anything of substance on him. Despite this, the pro-West 5th column in Russian media is attempting to create a storm in a teacup regarding Shoygu.
The members of the Russian 5th column in media/PR/civil orgs/education are called the ‘grant eaters.’ They work based on USA/West’s financial grants to write certain things their masters tell them to write. Russians at large are onto them, and of course, this pitiful attempt will have the opposite effect.
And oh, coincidence! Accusations against Shoygu appear during Russian Syria campaign and while the new escalation of the Pridnestrovie-Moldova-Romania-Ukraine conflict is anticipated!
Pridnestrovie is the break-away former territory of what is now Moldova (former USSR republic of Moldavia). It has been under Russian peacekeepers’ protection since the 1992 war. This quiet ongoing war is something that very few know of, or understand. But it’s much more important geopolitically than many imagine. I do plan a new Earth Shift Report, where I’ll explain all the intricacies of what’s happening in Moldova, Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Bulgaria, Balkans and elsewhere around Black Sea. Stay tuned for ESR7: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Last but not least, both Minister of Defence Sergey Shoygu and Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko are Putin’s men in the Russian government, as opposed to the so called ‘economic block’, which is considered pro-Western in its entirety. Therefore, attacks against Mutko and Shoygu are in fact attacks against Putin.
Below, let’s look in more detail into this new low in a hybrid 4D war. It’s directed against Russia, but it’s more than that. It’s a desperate attempt to hang on to the USA’s world hegemony and it’s a losing war to preserve NWO, something that seemingly worked for the Western elites for 20 years – until Russia destroyed their plans.
NWO and Hybrid 4D War Against Russia
Initially, I didn’t want to write about this new low in the hybrid war against Russia. But the fight is getting uglier and uglier; in light of that, I felt it was important that I weighed in. As the former world hegemon starts losing and the world sees more and more clearly that the king is naked, they simply don’t know how else to pinch or harm Russia.
Ukraine didn’t work out as they had hoped – instead of isolation, Russia consolidated her international positions and reputation, while Putin’s rating, both domestically and internationally, is through the roof; anti-Russian sanctions failed and EU is rebelling against the US; except for Ukraine, color revolutions aren’t working; Russia pulled a shocking game changer in Syria, proving that US wasn’t even trying to fight ISIL. And to top it off, to the US embarrassment, Iraqi parliament and US-hand-picked government is attempting the moves to ask Russia for help in bombing ISIL on Iraqi territory, thus snubbing American puppet masters. What a slap in the face!
In it I gave and example of the FIFA scandal and the ousting of its long-time president Joseph Blatter. The thing is that corruption within the organization notwithstanding, Blatter was a friend of Russia. Just before the scandal broke out he visited Russia and Putin. He was also a big proponent of the 2018 World Cup in Russia and supporter of the development of the Russian sport.
Russia never hosted World Cup, which is considered the Olympics of football. I personally am indifferent towards football (US: soccer), but many in Russia are ardent supporters and the country at large has been ecstatic to host the world’s most important football competition. This has to do with national pride, but also with the love of the sport. Regardless of how one feels about football or sport in general, my goal is always to present a balanced, truthful and complete picture.
And the truth is this: naturally and in line with their proclaimed goal of expanding the world of football and giving nations that never hosted the chance, FIFA, and Blatter personally, wanted to award World Cup to Russia and other countries that showed enthusiasm and dedication.
Knowing how well received World Cup was by Russians, the FIFA scandal was timed in such a way as to try to take the hosting rights away from Russia. THIS was really the reason for the whole FIFA scandal. The idea was to throw a lot of loud accusations in corruption and bribery and see if they would stick – if they could be pinned on Russia. If it was possible to prove that Russians got the 2018 World Cup via bribery, then the next step would begin: humiliate Russia by stripping it of the championship – and vilify, vilify, vilify on all levels possible.
The plan didn’t work. It turned out that the bribes were not Russian. They came from Qatar, which was awarded 2022 World Cup. The thing is that FIFA votes and awards two consecutive World Cups in one meeting. So, Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022 were awarded together.
According to witnesses, Qatar representatives carried with them envelopes stuffed with $20,000 each and just gave them away to everyone in the audience as ‘mementos.’ Just imagine what was going on behind the scenes and how much money was passed under the table, if $20,000 multiplied by thousands of participants were given out like little trifles.
But Qatar wasn’t the target here – Russia was.
Despite the obvious failure, Western MSM and politicians continued howling that Russia (notice – not Qatar) should be stripped of World Cup hosting. FIFA, which under Blatter conducted independent policies, refusing to bow to the Anglo-American bosses, refused to transfer it from Russia. Blatter stood firm and the scandal died down. No one demanded that Qatar be stripped of its 2022 World Cup.
The result was the ousting of Blatter under bogus and falsified pretexts as a lesson to others to toe the line.
It didn’t work out for World Cup. Now, the next target is 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.
Sochi 2014 and Kiev maidan
Let me remind my readers that 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi endured a large number of various attacks and calls to boycott them – something that is prohibited under Olympic rules. Moreover, the very maidan and violent coup in Kiev was timed to coincide with the Sochi Olympics in order to sour the Russian triumph as much as possible. I wrote about that at length in the beginning of 2014, as the situation developed.
Back in the beginning of 2014, as Kiev maidan developed, I predicted that the West would use the opportunity of Russia being tied with the Sochi Games to execute a coup in Kiev – and that’s exactly how it happened. I also predicted that Russia would wait till the end of the Olympics and then engage in Ukraine conflict. That’s exactly how it happened as well. The moment Sochi Games were over, Russia engaged and the result was Crimea seceding and referendums in Donetsk and Lugansk. I said back then that Russia would not send troops to Ukraine, but would remold the situation slowly and quietly to her favor – and that’s what we are observing today.
A somewhat similar stunt was performed against China to sour the 2008 Beijing Olympics. During the Opening Ceremony, Georgia and Saakashvili attacked S. Ossetia, forcing Russia to respond. Not only a war started on the day of the opening of the Olympics had been a slap in the face of the Chinese Games organizers, but it was also hoped that Russia wouldn’t be able to respond, being afraid to offend China. As we know, Russia responded very successfully. The goal of the 08/08/08 attack was not only to attempt to weaken Russia by taking over S. Ossetia, it was also to try to put a rift between Russia and China. As we know, none of that worked. I wrote about the striking parallels between Beijing Olympics – Georgia 2008 war and Sochi Olympics – Ukraine coup 2014 in one of my early articles. You can find more under PREDICTIONS.
Brazil Olympics conundrum and President Dilma Rouseff
The 2016 Olympics are taking place in Brazil, another country member of the BRICS. I will digress here to remind my readers my prediction from 2014, reiterated in 2015: Brazil and its president Dilma Rouseff will be extremely quiet in all things international until after the Brazil Games are over.
If you recall, after the NSA scandal was exposed and it became known that Rouseff and the entire top of Brazil were listened on, Dilma was extremely vocal and indignant. At first, she attempted to lead an international revolt against NSA and USA dominated internet and wireless communications. However, this project died down and it had been quiet ever since. Dilma was re-elected with great difficulty and she had to endure a lot of riots and protests. Then she calmed down and met with Obama, announcing in their joint press conference that differences notwithstanding, she was a big friend of America and President Obama.
Dilma saw the writing on the wall: either she gives in and stops her revolt, or she won’ be president for long. She saw that US and its vassals managed to spoil the Olympics for such giants as China and Russia; it would be so much easier to torpedo the Brazil Olympics. Therefore, Dilma Rouseff will be quiet and agreeable until after the Brazil Olympics are over in 2016. After that, Brazil will gradually re-acquire its more active political stance. But I wouldn’t expect too much from Brazil for some time. Looks like they managed to spook Dilma quite well.
WADA and the Russian team ban
WADA says that the entire Russian Olympic team should be disqualified and Russia should be banned from 2016 Olympics. This statement is extraordinary and unprecedented. First of all, this kind of announcement is never made at a press conference, BEFORE talking to the country in question. Secondly, it appears both the so-called ‘independent’ commission and the anti-doping agency have far exceeded their authority, delivering their own opinion instead of facts, attempting to influence world opinion, and pressuring/ intimidating a country they are supposed to be working with. Nothing like that ever happened in history.
There are only two explanations here: either the members of this ‘independent’ commission and WADA were bribed really, really well, or they were intimidated really, really well. My bet is that it’s both at once. As I said in the previous piece, these people all have tons of skeletons in their closets. It’s just the matter of time of when and how such skeletons would be pulled out and de-dusted to manipulate them.
I’m sure we will hear a lot about this new pinnacle in the ugly, unsporting war against Russia. I will just say that I never thought they could stoop this low in their attempts to hurt Russia. That said, I have to again reiterate, that unfortunately more of the same should be expected.
The Truth About Doping in Sports and Demands to Ban Russia from 2016 Summer Olympics
Let’s begin with a few remarks and observations:
The Moscow anti-doping lab closed down upon demands of the WADA independent commission. This lab is new and state-of-the art. It has lately organized some of the world’s biggest sporting events.
Note that the name of the commission that leveled the accusation is the ‘WADA independent commission’ – in other words, this commission is certainly NOT independent by any means – it is in direct WADA chain of command.
Another thing that is striking is this: in 2014, German TV channel ARD released a documentary in which it blamed Russian sport for heavy doping. I have seen a small snippet from said documentary. It appears that there were lots of loud accusations and emotional statements, but no proof provided. It also appears that the movie makers used statements by the Russian athletes who were ousted because they doped, and who therefore held a grudge. That alone is suspect to say the least. WADA began its ‘independent investigation’ right after the appearance of the documentary and based on its accusations. The whole thing just looks too conveniently coordinated.
2014 was the year of a multi-prong, coordinated attack on Russia: attempt to create a large and strong anti-Russia out of Ukraine, unseat Putin, anti-Russian sanctions, Ruble collapse engineered, oil price collapsed, attempts to isolate Russia internationally, and MH17 (to be blamed on Russia).
In conjunction with all the above, this German documentary, UK press articles and the subsequent investigation begun at the same time, don’t look like a casual co-incidence.
The truth has been coming out about what German TV and journalism really are: an extension of Anglo-American MSM and CIA/NSA combined. The German whistleblowers, who exposed how the ready-made material is simply given to German journalists by the US, are in hiding after having received life threats.
A similar whistleblower and the last remaining honest Ukrainian journalist Oles’ Buzina was killed several months ago in Kiev after he resigned his editor-in-chief post. Shortly before his death, he came out by saying that his conscience didn’t allow him to publish lies that were forced on him by the US embassy in Kiev.
As another example, a Polish politician and member of the Sejm (lower house of the parliament), whom I won’t name for security reasons, recently complained to me that Polish political landscape ‘has been paved in concrete by the US and not a blade of grass, (i.e., dissenting opinion) can get through.’
This is the reality of Europe, and therefore, the reality of all these world sporting agencies and federations, most (or all?) of which are located in Western Europe.
Doping problem in sports
Doping is a huge problem in sports. The US has gone through absolutely massive scandals with Michael Phelps, Serena Williams and her sister, several American all-star track and field athletes. All the above were hushed up. The biggest scandal was probably the former cycling legend Lance Armstrong. The remarkable thing about all these scandals was that most of these occurred AFTER these athletes finished their careers and retired, such as the Phelps and Armstrong cases.
Phelps, if I remember correctly, simply blabbed out publicly that he was doping and so was the rest of his team – but only after he retired. However, the huge and usually winning in all competitions US swimming team was never investigated or suspended, and no one ever suggested banning the entire American team from the Olympics, although the scope of the conspiracy fully warranted that! Being myself a competitive swimmer in the past I kind of always wondered about that… But here it was – Michael Phelps, the ‘king’ of the sport himself blabbed out he and his team mates were doping, yet no investigation ever took place.
Lance Armstrong and the American conspiracy
With cyclist Armstrong, the long-standing accusation of doping was corroborated by witnesses and leveled by parties for at least ten years, including Armstrong’s disgruntled and dishonored teammate Floyd Landis, the team masseuse, and others riders, who were prosecuted and whose careers were ruined for blowing the whistle. Floyd Landis won Tour de France after Armstrong left, but his win was disqualified after it transpired he had doped. Being pissed at Armstrong and at his team for snubbing him during his doping scandal, he went everywhere telling everyone who would listen on Armstrong and the team’s directeur sportif Belgian Johan Bruyneel. Landis alleged a widespread conspiracy involving the entire team, in which they all were required to dope heavily in order to win races.
But only after Armstrong retired did the investigation by USADA (US arm of WADA) finally take place. Proof of a mass doping conspiracy was rock-solid. All of Armstrong’s team mates were implicated, and they all confessed to the conspiracy. Yet, except for Armstrong, NONE of the US cyclists were banned or stripped of titles. Some received 6-month off-season suspension, others were warned to retire just before the scandal blew up, preserving their award money, titles and reputations. These other riders were given a sweet deal in return for testifying against Armstrong, and they did their best to pin everything on him.
The Armstrong scandal dirty underbelly
Lance Armstrong is a Texan and personal friend of George W. Bush. Therefore, while Bush was in power Armstrong was winning all sort of world competitions, including 7 Tour de France champion titles. There were accusations of widespread doping for at least 10 years. However, Bush’s personal protection worked its magic: they were all squashed violently both in the US and internationally, allowing American cyclists to dominate the world. Armstrong’s squad was called ‘the blue train of pain’ and Lance Armstrong personally was referred to as ‘the boss.’
I’m not kidding – violently is the word. After years of squashing any whistleblowers and awarding those who played along, Armstrong left a long trail of enemies. When Bush was gone, there was no one left to shield him from justice. It appears that Obama and democrats allowed the investigation to finally take place as a revenge against Bush and republicans. If Armstrong wasn’t as arrogant and cruel towards so many people, perhaps he would’ve gotten off easier. But all those whom he had wronged just piled up, adding accusation on top of accusation. And that’s how ugly the big sport can be, especially when a lot of money and overinflated egos come into play.
I am far from defending Armstrong, whom a pinned as bad news since the first time I laid my eyes on him – and that was years before he got caught. But the real reason he was exposed and others in the US weren’t, was purely political: democrats and Obama wanting to get one up on republicans and Bush.
Incidentally, when Armstrong was stripped of all his Tour de France titles, the French didn’t award those to anyone else as it was quietly recognized that the #2 and #3 winners were also doping.
Serena Williams steroid use and London Olympics
The story of the Williams sisters is even more bizarre. Persistent rumors are circulating of the long-term heavy usage of steroids. The stroke of Serena Williams is too strong for a woman, as specialists have suggested. This was clearly visible in the final match between Williams and Russian Maria Sharapova during the London Olympics.
Sharapova, who was in her best form, was a heavy favorite for the win. The spectators were perplexed why she was so uncharacteristically unable to deflect Serena’s shots that came as fast a bullets. The distrust of that ‘victory’ has been extremely strong, all this supported by the persistent rumors and accusations that Williams sisters have been inventing reasons to skip doping tests, and therefore, have not been tested for years. When testers arrived, they’d been known to skip town, lock themsleves in the bathroom or throw a tantrum, preventing samples from being taken.
Calls to strip Williams of the win and other medals abounded. However, nothing was ever done and the scandal was yet again hushed up.
The Olympics and pressure to dope
The doping problem is extremely pervasive in big sport. The 2008 Chinese Olympics left some questions about Chinese doping due to sudden drastic spike in performance. The 2012 London games certainly left a lot of questions. The unusually good performance of the UK team rose questions in my mind for sure.
The reason for that is the home town advantage, some may suggest. That’s true. There is a Russian saying, “Even the walls help when you compete at home.” But let’s be brutally honest: home base creates unusually good chances of letting the country’s own athletes off the doping tests easily, while testing others especially harshly. Incidentally, doping tests aren’t an exact science and much lies in their interpretation. There are known instances of athletes being banned from Olympics after they had a flu and took aspirin or anti-cough mixture days prior. This of course is absurd, but scandals involving banning on the grounds of taking innocuous flu medicine abound.
Of course, the team performance is helped by sabotaging other teams and introducing in your own Olympics those sports you are best at. In London 2012, we suddenly saw scores of equestrian events, which were never a part of the Olympics. Crowding the schedule with so many new events that never had been a part of the regular competition is direct manipulation. And who won them all (or most)? That’s right, UK.
Meanwhile, the events Russia is good at, such as rhythmic gymnastics (which in reality should be called ‘artistic gymnastics’ in English, to be consistent with the original name – yet another deliberate manipulation!), were cut to the bone, so Russia would get as few medals as possible. Many questions in the London Olympics were created by the unfair judging of wrestling and boxing events. In such events, consistently athletes from Russia were judged in such a way as to give gold to the opponent, including in many cases when Russians were favorites, thus creating the situation when Russia had surprisingly few gold medals and a lot of silver. This combination of factors worked very well and UK managed to climb in the team standing to the third place, bypassing Russia for the first time ever!
But certainly, no other Olympics were as openly corrupt and crooked as the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Yet, despite many allegations of corruption and misconduct, no one ever went to jail in the US and no one was ever banned. The whole scandal was hushed up so effectively that no one even mentions it. I was so disgusted watching the whole spectacle that after that I swore I would boycott the Olympics and any sport. And I did, until Beijing.
Bottom line, certain countries would do everything in their power to win sports competitions, yet they never get punished or investigated. Stakes are so high and the money is so good that some individual athletes dope in secret in order to win. Yet, very few get caught. It always happens for political reasons – not for the reasons it should happen, such as establishing the equal playing field and justice.
My friend, who has been in sports all his life, told me that if they really wanted to establish an equal playing field, if they really wanted to stop doping, they’d be testing athletes’ hair, not their urine. That’s where the long-term doping residue is really preserved.
Why don’t they do that, if it’s that simple? Because if they did, Serena Williams wouldn’t be playing. Neither would most of the US athletes.
Another thing my friend tells me is this: athletes have to dope to keep up with others. Cyclists, for example, simply cannot endure the three weeks of the Tour de France unless they dope ahead of time. Now that everyone has to dope much less than before, Le Tour has become much more boring and predictable to watch. Some all-star athletes had to drop out because without sufficient doping they cannot cope. Organizers are the hypocrites of our televised era: on one hand they create a hype about the spectacular challenges such as the spectacular climbs and bloodcurdling crashes; on the other, they want the riders to be monks. That’s why the beautiful sport such as cycling is now in a crisis.
Anti-Russian conspiracies in sports
There have been a lot of baseless accusations lately that the USSR won its many medals because of doping. I was a competitive swimmer when I was a teen back in the 1980s Moscow, and I’d been known to win some medals in my day. Not a single time did I hear anyone – neither athletes nor coaches – talk about anything to do with doping. What athletes did do in order to increase performance was use weights and resistance: such as you strap a belt with a wide plastic resistance plate to your waist and swim with this added resistance. Or weight bracelets are worn on arms and legs for added resistance. Many other training and natural diet methods existed. Between us, I hated all of that, not the least, having to be confined to the pool full of chlorinated water. Some thrive on it, but I am too much of a free spirit. I quit sport as soon as I could and never looked back.
Added: Just remembered this interesting episode! I also knew personally Oxana Bayul and Viktor Petrenko, both figure skating Olympic Champions. I knew them when I grew up in Odessa, where they lived (our skating rink was located three blocks from my house). I also knew their famous coach Galina Zmievskaya in New Jersey, as well as Galina Zmievskaya’s daughter in Simsbury, CT, where she worked as hairstylist and where she, incidentally, cut my hair. Many world-class Russian figure skaters trained in Simsbury, CT, when I also lived there.
Later, most of them, including Zmievskaya, Bayul and Petrenko, moved to other states. I met some of them again in New Jersey. Not once on any occasion did I hear anything about doping or anything related to any cheating from any of them, neither did I observe any such behavior. And perhaps by now my readers know how hard it is to hide the truth from me. I knew other Russian athletes as well, but I think the above is enough to illustrate the point.
So, I was right on the inside, and didn’t see or hear anything related to doping, yet those in the West who were never there and had no way of knowing what really went on, have all the knowledge in the world about the Soviet sport’s underbelly.
Certainly, I haven’t peeked into every boardroom and sports club in the USSR. It’s possible that there was doping here and there. But at the very minimum, this is the pot calling the kettle black.
Most likely, this is simply politically and jealousy motivated. Some hold a grudge against Russia/USSR since those old days and they feel now is a good time to unload it as it’s fashionable (and profitable) to attack Russia on all fronts.
At the same time, the real doping problem in the USA and West is conveniently hushed up.
Another example: a couple of years ago there was a scandal when Russian pro-cycling team Katyusha was banned from riding just before the start of the season on some silly technicality – they didn’t file this or that. At the time, Katyusha was the #2 rated team in the sport, with the #1 rated leading rider Joakim Rodriguez, who would also be banned. Team with such standing had to be allowed to compete automatically, with no paperwork of any kind filed.
Meanwhile, the team that rated #14 with non-rated lead rider Alberto Contador coming out of doping suspension, was allowed to join the season automatically, which should have happened in Russian team’s case. Russian team had to do some very fancy footwork, costing athletes nerves and concentration and missing some competitions, in order to be allowed to compete. The rumor in sporting circles was that Russians didn’t bribe World Cycling Federation, and that’s why they were snubbed. Meanwhile the Contador team (I believe it was Saxobank), German in origin, put out the kind of bribe they could not refuse. Therefore, we are likely looking at enormous corruption and ugly collusion in the sport.
Can WADA be trusted?
In this regard, I really would like to know how much WADA can be trusted? Who and how much has paid them for this stunt?
Another thing that should be taken into account are the ambitions and honesty of the doping testers, as well as inspectors and prosecutors themselves. From my years of observation, it appears to me that their own ego and pride frequently get in the way of honest and clean results.
The Big Sport’s vicious cycle
Yes, I would love for the sport to become a clean, true, honest test of everyone’s abilities. That would be possible if the sport was a strictly amateur past time; if achieving a new height, best result and glory for yourself and your country wasn’t the over-riding goal.
This is how we do sports in our family. We go for hikes for enjoyment, not to outdo everyone; cycling is done for the joy of riding and fresh air; ping pong is played for the sense of camaraderie and good conversation; and chess for the same reason.
But that’s us. Countries invest in sport because it’s one of the methods to support national pride and solidify national self-esteem, while private clubs and organizations do so to advance sport to the new heights, but even more so – for profit and personal enrichment. In the world we live in – where instead of cooperation everyone tries to outdo everyone else, the opportunities for enrichment, profit, greed and corruption abound. Until this is the case, doping will exist.
In our day and age of mass sport and mass TV, in order for sport to be big and desirable by many, in order for sport to be attractive as a TV spectacle, as an inspiration and as a cash cow, it has to be hyped up. If it’s hyped up, there will always be people who will want to get ahead to get their own fifteen minutes of glory. There will always be unscrupulous coaches and directors, who’ll want to give that extra boost to their team.
But what about real talent, you ask? The real talent will have no choice but to keep up with the rest, or abandon sport. The real talent will have to start doping in order not to be trampled on by those less talented and less honest who don’t care how they achieve the result.
This creates a vicious cycle. That said, not all sports are created equal: certain sports are much better at controlling doping abuse than others. And there are many good and honest athletes who don’t dope.
But then, isn’t it a great idea to crack down on doping violations? Isn’t it what WADA and other such agencies are supposed to do?
It would be wonderful if they did so equitably and fairly! I’d be the first one applauding. But this is not the case, is it? As I’ve shown above, what we are seeing are highly politicized actions that have nothing to do with real sport and real fairness.
Russia needs to be punished because Russia dares to speak the truth and conduct independent policy; because Russia and Putin are becoming more and more popular, while the US power is waning; because Russia has dealt too many blows to US and NWO dominion. This is the reason for such unprecedented actions.
To conclude, let’s recall, just like in the case with FIFA bribing scandal, they accuse first, and try to prove it never. Once this scandal doesn’t work out, they’ll find another scandal to generate.
This is clearly a further attempt of punishment for Russia. Note that Putin just annoucned at G20 in Turkey that ISIL was financed by 40 countries, including G20 members (see: ISIL financed from 40 countries, including G20 members – Putin). Today, Russia began bombing ISIl oil fields and infrastructure – the source of much of the terrorist and militant funding – something US/France/UK/Australia conveniently failed to do for over a year. Read all about it in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER. Also see this corroborating video.
Directly after that the ban of the entire Russian athletic team from international competitions was announced – yet another confirmation that this is staged and directly tied to Russia’s actions in Syria. The bigger goal is, of course, to keep Russia down, suffocating, unable to function and develop.
If they succeed in banning Russian athletes from 2016 Olympics, it’ll set up an extremely dangerous precedent. Can they actually ban the entire Russian team? Probably not. But they can reduce the Russian team very substantially, and they can also dampen the spirits so much as to take away any chances for success. Russian sport is now on the rise, after many years of falling after the collapse of the USSR. This is a clear attempt to drag Russia down under water again. Who and why needs that? We had talked about it many times before. The same forces that want to make the entire world into their slaves and obedient robots. This is yet another swipe by what we call NWO to keep us all subdued.
Why Russia? Because Russia is the Great Balancer, and because Russia is that last bastion they are unable to conquer. Russia stands in the way of NWO world domination and Russia has been successfully turning around the situation, gradually rebalancing the energy and power to the East. These dark forces can’t afford that. They will attack Russia in every way possible to slow down the process.
They are hoping that the insult of the investigation and banning of the Russian team will dampen Russian spirits and cause Russia to make some bad moves. They are also hoping Putin will somehow lose his cool. They know how important sports are for Putin, they know that Russia has been investing huge amounts to develop mass sports in the country, which lagged behind since the ’90s collapse.
The goal is to broadside, confuse, get Russia mired in problems and investigations. The goal is to sabotage and slow down Russia. The declared mega-goals are also to isolate Russia and to unseat Putin.
This is why Putin and Russia are behaving in the only correct way possible. Putin has announced that Russia will openly and fully cooperate with all international investigations as Russia’s goal is the same as everyone’s – to stop abuses in sport. Those who are guilty will be banned, but it’s not fair to ban the entire team. I think this is a perfect response under the circumstances.
And last but no least: since most, if not all, of world sporting organizations are located in Western Europe, since doping protocols and procedures are all developed between US and Western Europe, since most sporting rules have also been set up in Europe, UK or US, I would strongly suggest Europe to stop being hypocrites and start looking in the mirror.
For the full picture in this new low in the hybrid war against Russia, and on how Olympics have become an ugly proxy in the global geopolitical struggle to preserve the dying US Empire, read my complete article compilation on Olympics, doping in sport, and Brazil!
Just couldn’t pass this up! Guaranteed, you won’t see this exchange on BBC, CNN or Euronews.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Erdogan met in Baku, Azerbaijan, which is hosting the first ever European Games under the auspices of the IOC.
While there are African, Asian and other continental games, there were no European games till now. This was of course due to the fact that Olympics as such were born in Europe, therefore, the Olympics proper were till recently perceived as ‘European Games,’ if you will.
I have to say, I would much prefer to see Eurasian Games, uniting all the peoples of Europe and Asia, including EU, Russia, Middle East and all of Asian countries. Eurasia is in fact one continent, once upon a time artificially divided in two.
Some people may say: First European Games… and in Azerbaijan? Isn’t that strange?Azerbaijan is a Muslim country and the Opening Ceremony was a confirmation of that, when the entire show evolved around Middle Eastern themes. However, geographically all of Caucasus, including Azerbaijan, is a part of Europe.
Both Erdogan and Putin were present at the Opening Ceremony of the games (see video below). Incidentally, both Russian and Turkish cultural influences are very strong in Azerbaijan. Everyone speaks Russian and many conduct business in Russian/with Russia. Meanwhile, Azeris feel their biggest historic affinity to the Turks, although some lean closer to Iran.
Therefore, during the Opening Ceremony both Russian and Turkish teams received the most support from the audience, apart from the host, Azerbaijan, whose appearance was met with an ovation.
Basically, both Putin and Erdogan feel quite at home in Baku. They have met on the sidelines and here is a brief translation of their meeting (video below).
Erdogan: ‘First of all, I want to note that it was a great celebration yesterday at the opening. Great first games. What struck me was that none of the EU leaders showed up. At least they will be represented by their athletes during sporting events.
Putin (0:50): You, as a candidate for ascension to the EU, represented the entire European Union yesterday (laughter).
Lada’s remark: since EU constitutes a large part of Europe, especially, considering it’s what is traditionally thought of as ‘Europe,’ it seemed really strange that none of them showed up in Baku. In reality, nothing strange about that. This is punishment to Baku and Azeri President Aliyev for attending the Victory Day on May 9th in Moscow and for getting closer to Russia.
Of course, Azerbaijan was awarded the first European Games hosting in 2012, BEFORE Aliyev started getting closer to Russia. Things like that traditionally are bribes given by the West to various countries. Hosting games such as these strokes the country’s ego and in exchange the country is expected to do what it’s told. The same way as Azerbaijani singers often placed second or won Eurovision in the past. The singers’ natural talent notwithstanding, Eurovision is one of the most politicized shows on the planet and these are clearly political bribes. This time, with the European Games, the bribe was wasted.
I mentioned in some of my articles and a previous interview with The Plane Truth that Putin jet-setted the world throughout 2014, creating a complex web of new alliances. One of the brilliant moves by Putin that the West entirely missed was to invite both Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents to the 2014 world wrestling championship in Sochi. Wrestling is the most popular sport in both Armenia and Azerbaijan. But that’s where similarities end.
Ever since both former Soviet Republics, and before that regions of the Russian Empire, became independent in 1992, undeclared war raged between them for the disputed province of Nagorny Karabakh. Although Russia officially took a neutral position, Russia is considered by most a supporter of Armenia. For the first time ever, Putin managed to get the two enemies into one room, sat them on both sides of himself as they watched wrestling matches, and for the first time in decades, had the two shake hands. No one else was ever able to achieve such feat. After that, and after Russia awarded new agricultural/food export contracts to Azerbaijan to replace the sanctioned European agricultural products, Russia-Azerbaijan relations skyrocketed into a new orbit practically overnight.
I wrote last year that Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev’s father, previous president Geidar Aliyev, was intimidated into cooperation with the US against Russia in the 1990s after a CIA assassination attempt. His son starting to make moves towards Russia means he is now a target, too. Let’s note that Erdogan himself endured assassination attempt and multiple color revolution attempts, as well as a storm of attacks in Western press, after he and Putin agreed on the Turkish Stream late last year. But Erdogan is a general and he is much tougher than he may appear.
Consequently, Aliyev is being advised and supported by two very useful allies. This means he will be able to withstand pressure by the West.
The above inside joke by Putin is a hint at the fact that Turkey has been knocking on the EU door for over 50 years, but was never accepted, despite its close cooperation with NATO (against USSR and Russia, I might add). Erdogan gave up on the EU and changed gears towards Russia. During Erdogan’s visit to Moscow last year, he joked that Turkey wasn’t welcome in the EU; perhaps it was time for Turkey to ask for membership in Eurasian Union. As they say in Russia: ‘every joke contains a little joke; the rest is the truth.’

First European Games Complete Opening Ceremony, Baku, Azerbaijan. It was beautifully done and the Middle Eastern imagery was stunning. Unfortunately, not everything was factually correct (such as the legend of Europa and the Bull). Besides, the English commentators were as clueless as ever.
