Despite various attempts by the US to sabotage the process, Japan is making consistent steps to slowly decouple from the US, and get closer to Russia! This is happening thanks to the wise policy of Putin and his team, who in the past several years invited Japanese business to establish joint ventures in a multitude of fields. And thanks to the common sense attitudes and sovereign policies of the Japanese PM Abe.
We also have to ‘thank’ Obama’s and Trump’s anti-Russian sanctions. If not for them, Japanese business wouldn’t be able to get its foot in the door. The space for the Japanese, S. Korean and Chinese business was very ungraciously freed-up by the sanctioned Western businesses, as a result of the US/UK/EU sanctions and trade war against Russia.
As I predicted in 2014:
1. ‘If the West hits Russia with sanctions, off to the EAST Russians go before anyone can blink!’
2. Russia benefits from sanctions!
AND THAT’S WHAT WE CALL THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT!

The presidents of Russia, China, and Mongolia, as well as the Prime Ministers of South Korea and Japan, are to attend the Vladivostok Far Eastern Forum next week. Ahead of the forum, Sergei Mengazhin, Russian correspondent in Tokyo, was invited over by the individual responsible for the new Japanese policy towards Russia. This topic is of primary concern to Siberia and the Far East, but it’s a point of interest for all Russians and beyond, largely due to the striking contrast between the islanders from Japan and those from Great Britain.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited a Mazda plant in Russian far-eastern city of Vladivostok on Monday (September, 10). The leaders of two countries attended the launch of an assembly line of engines at ‘Mazda Sollers Manufacturing Rus’ company’s plant. Putin and Abe inspected the plant and watched the presentation by the company experts. ”Mazda Sollers Manufacturing Rus” is a joint venture of Mazda Motor Corporation of Japan and the Sollers company of Russia, established on the principles of equal partnership.

Russian Railways is working on the concept of a cargo train, which will be capable to carry from 300 to 600 tonnes of cargos at a speed up to 300 km per hour.
Cargo transit shipments from Europe to China by Russian high-speed railway will take two days instead of 60 days by sea, President of Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov said speaking at a meeting of the United Russia faction.
“We plan to reach China via Kazakhstan and to carry special high profit cargos to Europe via Russia, because a ship sails now 60 days, which is a long time. It sails round India and only than arrives to Europe. With a high speed (railway) transport we will be able to deliver goods in two days, and to earn extra money for our country,” he said.
Russian Railways’ main task for 2017 is the launch of the project and the start of the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high speed railway.
The Moscow-Kazan High Speed Railway’s total length will stand at around 770 kilometers. Trains may go at a speed of 350-400 kilometers per hour, and the time en route between the two cities could be 3-3.5 hours against the current 14 hours. According to Belozerov the railroad may be commissioned before 2022-2023.
The total cost of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway line is estimated at 1.068 trillion rubles ($16.8 bln). The Moscow-Kazan section may later be extended to China, connecting the two countries across Kazakhstan. According to the Russian Railways, the length of Moscow-Beijing railroad will be 7769 km, travel time – 32.8 hours (four times faster compared to current 130.4 hours). The average annual passenger traffic is estimated at 195 mln people.
China intends to provide 400 bln rubles ($6.5 bln) for the project of Moscow-Kazan high speed railway as a credit for 20 years and more than 100 bln rubles ($1.6 bln) as a contribution to the charter capital of the special project company.
The German Initiative Consortium (includes Siemens, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bahn and other companies) is ready to allocate 2.7 bln euros to finance the construction of the high-speed railway line and to attract up to 800 mln euros for the project.

IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
First ever East Russia International Economic Forum (Vostochny Economichesky Forum), aka, Eastern Economic Forum, is taking place in Vladivostok, Russia. Vladivostok is Russia’s port and international hub in the Far East, located very close to Japan.
During Soviet days Vladivostok was a closed city, where foreigners were not allowed. After the breakup of the USSR it became a hub for trade with Japan, sometimes illegal.
However, as Russia continues its historic pivot to the East (as I predicted since the beginning of 2014) more and more interest in free and legal country-to-country trade is developing. What a turn around from the Soviet days!
During the East Russia Economic Forum Putin announced that Vladivostok would become first Free Trade Port in the Far East, a development eagerly awaited by Japanese, Korean and Chinese business and investors. Putin also announced that following Vladivostok, other Russian Far Eastern ports will become Free Trade zones. He didn’t specify which ones, but I believe we are talking primarily Khabarovsk and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, but also probably Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Komsomolsk-na-Amure and a few others.
Why is this announcement being made now:
This proposal had been on the table for the Japanese investors for some years. Russians promoted it as a way to make peace with old Japanese claims for Kuril Islands and Sakhalin (the latter has been withdrawn, as far as I know). However, Japanese, due to the internal politics and American pressure were unwilling to move the issue along. The elegant solution of the free trade zones, while Russia keeps the political, administrative and military control over its strategically important islands is a very wise solution of the old dispute.
The free trade ports issue stalled until China and Russia were literally pushed towards a very close alliance after the blatant intervention of the US and West in Ukraine and after the anti-Russian sanctions. The multi-faceted Russia-China alliance is making new leaps forward, the latest being Putin’s trip to Beijing for the Chinese parade (I’ll have a separate post about that).
As the trade between Russia and China is making these giant leaps, Korean and Japanese investors have to scramble to catch on while they can. The alternative is losing the lucrative Russian market, which is now opening up. But this rare opportunity will only last until the market is taken.
Japanese interest in the East Russia Forum is overwhelming, same as Chinese, S. Korean, Singaporean, etc. The organizers said that they planned for 1000 participants, while they got over 5000 participation requests. The interest from Europeans is just as huge.
The systematic Russian pivot to the East is continuing. It is helped by the short-sighted and silly policies of the West (recall my many predictions!).
Japan, usually identified as part of the West, is seeing the writing on the wall and is trying to shift towards the East as well. Japanese businessmen declared during the forum their desire to keep politics and business separate.

Synchronicity in action:
As I was getting ready to publish this post, I received three tweets from my Japanese friend Akaida. Here they are:
@LadaTweets Even Japan going #BRICS? Sanctions could lead to Russia-Japan currency swaps https://www.rt.com/business/314193-japan-russia-swap-sanctions … hmm! 🙂
These are all positive signs, at least on the economic front. I spoke in my article Pro-US and Anti-Russian Japan: Eyewitness Overview and Predictions about Japanese business interests diverging from Japanese politics. Dependence on the US and habitual political confrontationism with the neighbors will continue putting the brake on Japan’s integration into the new model of development. I think US will keep its influence over Japan for another 5 or more years.
But cracks are showing, and they are showing on the business side. Japan, still being 2nd largest Asian economy and 3rd-4th largest global economy, plus possessing advanced technologies, is a very valuable business partner. Meanwhile, the ongoing weakening and collapse of the West is causing Japan to reconsider its tight economic alliance with the West. Japanese business has no choice but diversify in order to survive.
Japanese business is eager to set politics aside and set up alliances with the growing world and Asian powers, where the future development is, but old Japanese political allegiances are holding this process back.
This is my summary analysis of the most important features of the slow, ongoing shift of Japan’s position on global arena.
- It has to be remembered that while Japan has no global political power, serving basically the US Trojan Horse in the region, it is an economic powerhouse, which at one point was the engine of the global economy. Also, Japan’s regional political and military ambitions are on the rise. All this together means that when Japan switches allegiances, it will be a huge blow to the US empire.
- We should expect Japanese switch in conjunction with the EU switch, of which I briefly wrote in the above-linked article. This will be a slow and tedious process, to be sure.
- Because Japan has built walls of confrontation and animosity against so many countries in Asia, it is difficult for them to reintegrate. Many in Asia distrust Japan utterly, based on history and present policies.
- My prediction is that Japan will be able to re-integrate into Asia economically through the unifying factor of Russia. Generally, Russia will serve as the bridge and peacemaker for re-creating understanding and cooperation not only in Asia, but also in all of Eurasia, including Europe. The Middle East will take longer, but that will also happen eventually (not for a while, the wounds are too deep). Eventually, Russia’s role will be to re-establish the principles of cooperation and friendship on our entire planet.
- Fro the time being, we should have no illusions about Japan politically and militarily. The confrontational approach will persist for as long as Japan’s best buddy is USA. The new Japanese military doctrine for the first time since WWII allows Japanese troops to be deployed oversees. This, understandably, makes everyone in Asia jittery, as people still remember the destructiveness of the Japanese militarism in the past.
- There is a clear bifurcation (and rift?) forming between Japanese economic interests and its political direction. This will have to be resolved eventually. I give it 5-7 years. As USA empire weakens, Japan will gradually shift away from the West and closer to the East and Russia. Eventually, economic interests will prevail over politics. Japanese business must now scramble to catch up to China. Incidentally this applies to S. Korea and Singapore as well. If they don’t, in the shifting global economic landscape Japanese companies will start losing out to competitors, weakening the country’s economy.
- On some level, Japanese government understands this gloomy scenario. This is why they quietly allow their business to disregard politics. Make no mistake, there is clearly a secret understanding between Japanese big business and the ruling elites (some might say they are one and the same). This is why publicly there is support of the US-Japan alliance, and behind the scenes, economic integration with Russia and the BRICS.
- Incidentally, the same is happening with S. Korea, Singapore and other countries. In the next post I will have a telling story about the pressure applied by the US on S. Korea to prevent it escaping US clutches. Same kind of situation is applicable to Europe as well. Everyone sees the writing on the wall. But for the time being, US is still strong enough keep its ‘allies’ in its clutches.

Pro-US and Anti-Russian Japan: Eyewitness Overview and Predictions (Striking parallels between Japan and Poland)
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS RE. JAPAN
Politically, I do not foresee any improvement between Russia and Japan at this time. Economically, there is a little bit of positive, mutually interested development.
The propaganda has very deeply penetrated Japanese society. The future of bilateral relations is murky and uncertain – that’s why Patricia is seeing a confusing picture: it is undecided and confusing; it’s one step forward, two steps sideways. Distrust by average Japanese towards Russia will continue, heated up by the US-supported MSM and political propaganda.
I have to say, average Russians also don’t feel so hot towards Japan. These are very old suspicions. Pity – there is so much both Russia and Japan could accomplish together and learn from each other! Attempts are being made by Russia, but all this goes nowhere. Russia and Japan still don’t have a signed peace treaty after WWII. Imagine that!
The way Japanese MSM and politicians present it, Russia is the biggest enemy, while it was actually their ‘official protector’ the US that dropped A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and still has bases on Japanese territory. In favor of creating the image of the arch-villain out of Russia they even forget their other eternal arch-enemy No. 1.5 – China. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad!
I am not advocating Japan becoming an enemy of the US – just the opposite. For Japan it’s crucial to make up with all neighbors, including Chinese, Vietnamese and Russians, while maintaining good relations with everyone else. The thing is, historically speaking Japan is considered the biggest bully and aggressor in Asia, where just about every country distrusts and has a grudge against them. This is why Japan doesn’t feel like an Eastern nation, preferring to side with the West. No one really accepts them in the East, and their own policies and uncompromising, arrogant attitudes towards neighbors only reinforce that alienation.
From this perspective, Japan is a perfect vibrational match to the USA. No wonder they are such good friends, despite all the latest frictions. Some of the friction is for show, while certain agreement on issues still exists. The rest is Japanese politicians playing off the populist nationalistic sentiment of their countrymen. Either way, Japanese politicians are hardly doing any favors for the long-term development of their country.
US will continue keeping Japan under tight control for at least another 5-7 years, or more (depends on economic interests and how soon Europe swings to Russian side). Russian – Japanese business will be developing a little, as it has, because it’s mutually beneficial. But nationalism will persist and authorities will continue playing anti-Russian and anti-Chinese cards to keep their power.
PM Abe is really inconsequential. It doesn’t matter who will come after him as they will act like twins. This is the time for ANY PM who is nationalistic; yells about returning the Kuril Islands (um… excuse me, ‘northern territories’) – which, by the way, will never happen; escalates military spending, while behind the scenes takes orders from bosses across the ocean, etc.
Kuril Islands and Sakhalin were Russian territories before the 20th century, and they became part of Japan after Russia lost Russo-Japanese war in 1904. As a result of WWII, Russia got the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin back as part of Japanese reparations after Japan lost on the side of Hitler.
It is important to understand one crucial thing about Japanese politicians. It is imperative for them to scream about Kuril Islands and Russia as aggressor in order to divert attention from the true problems inside the country. And these are: 1. the de-facto occupation by the US, complete with US naval bases; 2. Fukushima consequences; 3. economic situation and debt problem; 4. unresolved historic issues, including Hiroshima; 5. social dissatisfaction of a very closed-up society.
Of course Japanese MSM, like MSM almost everywhere in the world, is under the US thumb.
Former Japanese PM Hatoyama is known for his recent surprise visit to Crimea, which he accomplished despite the heat such visit drew in Japan. He is a surprisingly decent and brave guy for a Japanese politician, but he has no chance right now. Maybe in a few years. Being thought of as associated with Russia in any way (even though there is really no association) only hurts his chances of being heard. Pity, but this is the reality.
Still, what Hatoyama has done wasn’t only brave, but also was necessary to shutter the so-called “unified Western front” in relation to Crimea. Actually, his very courageous feat caused a European shift. Since then, a French parliamentary delegation has visited Crimea, and I believe a German Bundestag delegation is next.
Striking parallels between Japan and Poland you would never imagine existed!
In some ways, Japan as far as its political composition and views go, reminds me of Poland. But I think even in Poland there are more people who see the world situation with clearer eyes. This is because more Poles speak Russian and still remember the old days when Russia/USSR did absolutely everything to extend the hand of friendship to Poland, forgetting the old grudges.
You all know my view on this: perhaps the USSR and Russia have overdone the forgiveness thing. Not only the USSR liberated Poland in 1945 at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives, but Stalin also made sure Poland received a huge chunk of German territory after WWII, as part of German reparations. USSR also saw to it that Polish economy did well, investing resources and money USSR should have kept for its own after-the-war reconstruction and development.
Meanwhile before the war, Poland under its virtual dictator Pilsudski had been a pretty vicious aggressor. Using Hitler’s aggression as a distraction, Poland tried to bite off pieces of Czechoslovakia, Austria, and any country they could get their hands on. This was Polish attitude historically, including attempts to invade Russia to replace Russian tsars with usurpers. Not to mention that since 18-19th century Poland was consistently engaged in molding Malorussia, aka, Malorossia (known today as Ukraine) into anti-Russia.
The USSR, preferring to sweep the truth under the rug, caused Poland to feel they didn’t have to pay the price for past misdeeds, encouraging in turn more arrogance, playing victim, and bolder aggression, which we are observing today.
As we know, Japan did pay a dear price in the form of territories, lives and humiliation, for the WWII and pre-war aggression, as did Germany. In that, Japan and Poland are very different.
Poland and Japan are also very different in terms of culture.
Finally, Japan is a much more economically developed country, with infinitely larger economy, which once was the engine of global growth, and substantially higher standard of living than Poland. (But both countries are very similar in a sense of embracing the Western lifestyle and capitalist economic principles based on US ‘advice’ – Japan after WWII and Poland after the breakup of the USSR – and paying for their capitalist development by raking in insurmountable level of debt, which is now coming back to haunt them.)
Yet, both Poland and Japan, being so different in just about every sense, are:
- Thoroughly and willingly under the US thumb;
- Have a lot of historic distrust relative to ALL neighbors;
- This causes them to rely on alliance with the US against closest neighbors, US being the only country their selective memory forgives for any wrongdoing;
- Both countries have substantial territorial disputes with more than one neighbor;
- MSM/politicians in both are engaged in pretty vicious anti-Russian propaganda, while being supported by the US, and in fact, serving as US Trojan Horses in their respective regions;
- Additional very strong countries in their vicinity, which they regard with jealousy and extreme distrust: Germany for Poland and China for Japan;
- Both countries secretly dream about restoring their failed empires.
I can tell you with absolute confidence – this is a way to nowhere.
Economy will eventually cause both countries to reconsider and back off. But before that happens, both Japan and Poland – so easily manipulated due to their ulterior motives, such as nationalism and imperial ambitions – will cause a lot of trouble for Russia, Eurasia and for themselves.
My QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS will give you an additional layer of clarity!
Japan as a whole country presently calibrates at: 150 – anger; Chi: 180 – pride
Tokyo as a whole city calibrates at: 180 – pride; Chi 189 – pride.
Fukushima situation in reality calibrates at: 110 – fear; Chi 85 – grief — in other words, real disaster; although it’s better than a couple of years ago.
Real state of Japanese economy calibrates at: 95 – grief. See, THIS is the truth – this is what they are really trying to hide by yelling about Russia as enemy No. 1! Japanese economy isn’t doing so hot.
Real state of Japanese-Russian relations: 150 – anger
State of China-Japan relations: 85 – grief
Real state of Japanese-US relations: 198 – yearning/striving. Isn’t that interesting! What are they striving and yearning for? To be accepted by the US as equals? Or they are desperately trying to keep the front, while the deep-seated cracks start appearing?

Earth Karma, Human Consciousness and Dolphins
This new article is a continuation of my earlier post about #dolphin and #whale tragedy and it is in response to the beautiful comment by reader Aeyrie, which is posted below. Thank you, Aeyrie!
Original post: Save #Dolphins and #Whales – Join #opKillingBay #opSeaWorld TweetStorm 12/19/14. Please go to this article to learn more and see how you can help. Please RT, FB, email, share and reblog it!
What you’ll read below will make you think, and questions things; it will reveal who the dolphins really are and why they are here.
Unfortunately, Aeyrie is right about humans and certain dark forces at play. Human consciousness is largely under-evolved compared to so many species out there, dolphins and whales included. Presently there are so many beautiful beings from various worlds and dimensions that incarnate to help in raising human consciousness. The human earthly realm is sequestered and humans have to stay close to the confines of our planet, bound by Earth’s gravity and heavy Karma. Human cruelty and violence worries many in the Universe.
However, Aeyrie, I am afraid the dark forces you talk about aren’t of any mysterious origin. Sadly, very sadly, all this cruelty and unconscious behavior is purely human. Are there dark forces out there? Of course. Dark energy exists in the universe alongside the energy of light, and it serves its own purpose – balance. Like everything, it’s just a tool. It’s up to us to use it for good or evil. Misused, it becomes a hindrance to consciousness development, manifestation, and to life itself.
You can only let the dark energy uninvited into your heart and soul, you can only become susceptible to excessive darkness if you allow the darkness within you to become a dominant force – if you become a slave to your lowly emotions and desires. In my Earth Shift System I call it ‘low calibration.’
If you allow your soul to be corrupted; if you succumb to fear, greed, shame, guilt; if you live your life unconsciously; in other words, if you calibrate below 200 – then you provide an opening for further corruption of your soul, heart and spirit. We, each of us – are masters of our own destiny. I highly recommend that all my readers check out my 2-part video about Calibrations of Human Consciousness:
- ProjectEarthShift 2: Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-affirming/ life-creating calibrations 200-1000)
- ProjectEarthShift 1:Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-diminishing calibrations 0-199)
It doesn’t matter whether this corruption originates from an otherworldly dark entity or from your brother. The point is, corruption will lead to further corruption. On the other hand, personal responsibility, knowledge, truth and wisdom will lead to wholeness (as in: there will be no openings for the dark forces to enter your body, mind and spirit). Wholeness will lead to higher calibration. That will lead you to conscious and enlightened way of life that in turn will rebalance your personal Karma, help lighten up the Earth Karma and will show others the way. In turn, as Earth Karma lightens up, Earth will be able to make a leap into the better future and into the higher density (higher dimension). I talk about that in my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER.
As I mentioned, I’ll be talking about all these very important and interesting topics in my upcoming interview with the Cat’s Eye On the Future show on the Time Monk Radio. Links to the show will be posted around Tuesday, 12/9/14 on both blogs.
Aeyrie is also right about the fact that despite all this unbelievable cruelty, and sometimes deliberate harm from humans, dolphins still love us and still try to help us every chance they get. I talked about that in my previous article: Save Our Dolphins! Help Stop Mass Dolphin Slaughter in Japan!
Please read this article about the annual #Taiji, Japan, dolphin tragedy. In it you will find a number of eyewitness videos, heart-breaking stories and many, many useful links and suggestions on how to help change this terrible situation.
In the upcoming interview I’ll speak about the heavy Earth Karma and the need to lighten and reverse it. Compassion, kindness, love and conscious living will do this best. Not only that, I like to think that they are contagious. Yes, each and every one of us is personally responsible for our entire planet. More in the upcoming Cat’s Eye on the Future show. Stay tuned!
Also, in the comment section of the original post’s reblog on FuturisTrendcast you’ll find an interesting comment by Patricia Ormsby, who lives in Japan and knows Japanese society first hand: link.
Lada, Sea World San Diego was built in my home town when I was still a young child. When it opened I begged my father to take me there to see the beings I knew even then were my cousins, the Cetaceans. I was a very aware and telepathically gifted child. When I saw via the mental images they conveyed to me some of what Sea World was doing to them, ie: insisting they learn to do demeaning tricks on schedule several times a day, heinously experimenting on them, stealing their children away, forcing them to live in tiny concrete pools they barely had room to swim around in when they were not on show, alone, like a trout in a goldfish bowl, I was horrified.
The facilities of Sea World San Diego, Lada, are located on the edge of Mission Bay. The cruelest cut of all to our dear Cetacean cousins imprisoned there is that the ocean is within their sight. Every single day of their miserable lives they are, literally, within feet of precious freedom and a reunion with their families. Dolphin and Whale kind are smarter than we. How would any of us feel about being so cruelly taunted every day of our existences? When I saw this it so sickened my Heart and grieved my Soul that I never asked to be taken to Sea World again.
Later, as an adult, the first past life I contacted was one in which I was living the life of a Dolphin. I had a family and I was very happy. I loved my sleek and powerful body! The first memory I contacted in that lifetime was the day my wife and baby were threatened by a shark. In a split-second I had the odds calculated and could see what was about to happen. Sleek and powerful as I was I was helpless to change the outcome. They both died in front of my eyes when my wife, who was closest to our baby, turned and furiously attacked the shark. Our whole community was as deeply grieved as I. We did our best to console each other for our mutual loss, and after a time life went on.
Since then I have learned how to call my cousins and speak with them telepathically and I communicate with them regularly. I can tell you with absolute personal certainty that they are fully sentient. They love their homes, families and friends as much as we do. More, actually, because they natively possess a greater degree of consciousness than we currently do. The full spectrum of their awareness is orders of magnitude greater than ours. Collectively, humankind is just beginning the journey back to the level of awareness we once possessed. What we have done to them notwithstanding, they love us very much. Being the Loving Beings they are they continue to help us return to that higher awareness, and go beyond it.
I see that Sea World makes a minimal effort to educate, and while that is commendable, the fact remains that the awesomely sentient Beings they are holding in their facilities do not volunteer for that. They are captured and held as prisoners, treated abominably, driven insane and often brutally killed. All in the name of profit. Miraculously, they are still willing to help us!! They are showing us a beautiful example of the power of Unconditional Love, yes? I, for one, am so grateful.
I suggest that there may be an even darker motive at work here on the part of Sea World and other “scientific”, Navy, fishing and whaling operations. The members of the Cetacean race are so much more than beautiful sea creatures. As briefly described above they are an advanced race who has come here to help us and our beautiful Mother Gaia with attaining and holding higher consciousnesses in the higher densities. They (along with others) are here to help us rejoin our Cosmic Family after our very long domination and exile. That is their mission; that is our mutual destiny. The Cetaceans swim in the Akash. The are Higher Beings who are living repositories of Cosmic, planetary and human wisdom. Yet, they are being methodically captured and destroyed by these corporations! Do you think, as I do, that there might be an underlying, sinister agenda and method to this madness?
We must stop this abomination ASAP. We owe it to them. It is for the greater good of Mother Earth, Human kind, all of Gaia’s other children, and our sister and brother beings throughout the Cosmos. What we do to one we do to all. We are ONE.

Save #Dolphins and #Whales! #opKillingBay #taiji #anonymous #opfunkill #humangreed #profit
SOME HUMANS THINK KILLING AND TORTURING THE PEACEFUL AND EVOLVED BEINGS LIKE DOLPHINS AND WHALES IS FUN!
Last year, I did an expose on the brutal and inhumane annual slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan:
(See more material on Animals and Environment page!)
This year they are doing it again! One of the biggest buyers of captive dolphins and whales is #Seaworld.
For every dolphin captured and sold into slavery in Japan’s Taiji #killingbay SEVEN ARE SLAUGHTERED, often with horrible cruelty! Read my above post for more!
The horrible cruelty and greed of these humans add to the already very heavy KARMA of our planet!
I’ll be talking about karma, how it works and how it can be lightened and reversed in the upcoming interview with the Cat’s Eye On the Future show on the Time Monk Radio. Links will be posted on my blog in a couple of days.
Say NO – make them accountable, make them listen! Join TweetStorm! You can also sign petitions and write to Seaworld, Japan PM, your congressman, as well as various international organizations.
For more read full post of Lada Ray Blog. It includes all the details of the TweetStorm on December 19, as well as links, videos and other material!
Make it count!
Reblogs, Tweets, FB, G+, etc., are appreciated!
Examples of mass slaughter of dolphins and whales are found in Norway, Denmark and S. America (Peru primarily), but not on the same scale. My original ‘Save our dolphins’ article, the link to which you can find above, contains lots of links to petitions to sign, EU and world officials’ info, etc.
However, the above examples are peanuts compared to the biggest offenders – the infamous #Taiji #Japan and #Seaworld. What they do amounts to mass genocide and mass torture, uncomparable to others in scale – that’s why we do tweet storms and petitions, etc. They kill thousands every year! If Taiji is stopped and if Sea World is stopped too, they may have to close down the shop and hopefully we can save the majority of dolphins and whales, or at least many.
Japan’s Taiji dolphin-killing-machine is also known for its especial cruelty. The story someone told me is terrible. One of their practices is (I can hardly write it)… to catch a baby dolphin, cut off one of its fins and throw it back into water. So, when the rest of the family swims to the crying baby, refusing to leave it and trying to protect it, the killers take their sweet time slaughtering them one by one. And as I said, every dolphin sold into slavery to one of these wonderful European aquaria means 7 killed dolphins and countless babies left without mothers, or mutilated, with their fins cut off.
Please help us stop this!

Predictions Coming True! Russia Pivots to Asia: Putin goes to Mongolia and Opens Power of Siberia Pipeline to China
I have said since February 2014 that should Russia feel even slightly inconvenienced by the US/EU sanctions or restrictive attitudes, off to the East they go. I pointed out that the immediate and sweeping result of any Western anti-Russian sanctions will be Russia’s decisive turning away from Europe and West in general, and focusing on Asia. I also warned that Europe will eventually start feeling the pinch, not to mention, the US dollar’s demise will be expedited.
And here it is!
Since May 2014, Putin already signed mega-deals with China, including the Holy Grail multi-year gas deal and various trade, transportation, and tourism deals. Eurasian Union with Belarus and Kazakhstan (Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Tadzhikistan on the standby) was officially formed. Eurasian Union will be gradually expanding and it will be interesting to see when the stampede to join the EAU starts. I have some predictions about that, which I may share with all eventually. Add to that all the trade deals Putin signed in Latin America – another region symbolizing the ‘global South’ and the alternative to the US; the increasing drive by various coutries to ditch US dollar in bi-lateral trade and the formation of the BRICS Bank to counter IMF; Russia developing its own credit system + joining the Chinese credit system, while phasing out Visa and MC (also as predicted).
1. Putin and China’s First VP have inaugurated the largest pipeline in the world «Сила Сибири» – the POWER OF SIBERIA. This pipeline will send gas to China from Russia starting 2019. This is the largest construction project in the world. Video link. 3:23 Putin signs the pipeline.
2. Yesterday, Vladimir Putin also visited Mongolia – see the video below.
Some quotes and my thoughts: “Putin was greeted in Mongolia by the crowds gathered along the entire length of his route from the airport to the capital, Ulan-Bator. Putin and Mongolian president Elbegdorzh met as old friends – this is their third meeting this year. Discussed were: the possibility of the Power of Siberia pipeline going through Mongolia, which is the shortest distance to China.”
Therefore, Mongolia may become the Russian gas transit country! Can you imagine the volume of gas to China? The gas transit fees will really boost Mongolia’s tiny GDP!
“The visa regime between Mongolia and Russia is being cancelled. Russian Railways will be modernizing the Mongolian railroads.”
Railroads are very important in these parts and they have to stay very much “up to speed” as they constitute the best way to get around most of Asia, including Siberia, Mongolia and China.
“In addition, the Mongolian president asked Russia to remove restrictions on agricultural produce imports from Mongolia.”
These restrictions have been put in place when US attempted to make Mongolia its semi-colony. However, this trend has now been reversed, as it’s being reversed elsewhere on post-Soviet space. It appears Russia will again allow Mongolian agricultural products provided they adhere to the Russian health codes/norms.
Sure enough – exactly as I predicted in my earlier articles about Russian agricultural sanctions and re-orientation to the East and Latin America, there is a stampede to take over the food/agricultural shelf space lost by Europeans in Russian super-markets. Take a number – now interviewing candidates…
Mongolians still remember very well how the Red Army and the still young Russian commander Zhukov (future Marshall Zhukov, credited primarily with winning WWII) demolished Japanese troops in the battle of Khalkhin Ghol, thus saving the unprepared Mongolia from Japanese invasion. In 1937-45, China wasn’t this lucky.
See Ulan-Bator city footage – 2:30; monument to Marshall Zhukov considered a national hero of Mongolia/veterans/ Zhukov house memorial – 2:45. Mongolian military singing Russian song Den Pobedi (Victory Day) – 3:32.
On a more personal note: Mongolia is a country with a spacious territory and small population that for as long as I can remember had very strong and close ties with Russia. Mongolians always spoke Russian well, and they still do. When I started school, we had several Mongolian students in my class who were sent to Russia to study foreign languages. They spoke Russian practically with no accent whatsoever. One of them was very upset that she was told by her government to study Spanish, instead of her preferred English. Her Russian was awesome though. As soon as she graduated, she became her government’s interpreter from Russian, making a pretty good career. I was living in the West by then and I lost touch with my former classmates, but once in the 1990s I was watching TV news from Russia and I noticed her translating for the Mongolian president who was meeting in the Kremlin with Boris Yeltsin. Not bad for a little girl from Mongolia! I can only boast of translating in a meeting with Fidel Castro. 😉
P.S. While this is happening in Asia and Russia, France has announced that they have suspended the delivery of the first two Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia over Ukraine. Of course, who would have doubted they would be pressured by the US and EU! It will be a huge financial loss for France, although of course they will try to wait it out, hoping the tide changes and they can still fulfil the contract.
I sympathise with France and even with Hollande, although I think France deserves better. But – well – where is Charles De Gaulle, with his courage and independent policies, when you need him? The pressure is enormous, and unfortunately, it will continue, as I said in my many previous articles. Can’t give you any good news here – sorry. The pressure/threats/arm twisting/scare tactics against individual EU countries that attempt to do business and be friendly to Russia will continue until the people of Europe decide that enough is enough and muster their courage to stop being a US colony.
A new comment left by the FuturisTrendcast reader from France in PREDICTIONS: “Now unfortunately my government is a US lap dog too but fortunately my compatriots are not. I was amazed to see how many of them understand the US game and recognize its falsehoods. I really hope that the time you said Russia needs to buy, will bring us justice! Pls. let’s avoid a Worldwar III for the sake of our children and other beloved ones! By the way; the Sochi Olympics were great; everything progressed so smoothly!”
Another interesting article and another great episode from Lada Ray Live is coming shortly. Stay tuned!
Everyone in the world knows the famous Trans-Siberian Railroad (Trans-Sib), built in the 19th century and connecting Europe through the expanse of Siberia, along the southern shore of Lake Baikal, to the Pacific Ocean and China.
Old rails along the shore of the pristine Lake Baikal
Old railroad tunnel, Baikal
But few abroad know about another, equally famous in Russia, railroad called the simple abbreviation, BAM. BAM means Baikal-Amur Railway, or in Russian: Байкало-Амурская магистраль.
It is also called Baikal–Amur Mainline. “The Baikal–Amur Mainline is a 1,520 mm broad gauge railway line in Russia. Traversing Eastern Siberia and the Russian Far East, the 4,324 km long BAM runs about 610 to 770 km north of and parallel to the Trans-Siberian railway.” Wikipedia
Map of BAM and Trans-Siberian Railroad. BAM is in green and orange. Trans-Sib is in red.
The construction of BAM began 40 years ago today, July 8. It was dubbed the ‘construction of the century.’ Many young enthusiastic people moved to Siberia to build this railroad. The excitement was tremendous, reminiscent of the earlier Soviet industrialization years. The young people formed many of the so-called ‘stroy otriad,’ which means a ‘construction band’ as in ‘a band of brothers and sisters,’ and would go together to the cold Siberia. After they had completed the construction, they would often stay there, start a family and man the railroad they had helped build.
I remember some pretty awesome songs that were written especially for BAM. Here is one of them. It is called Яростный стройотряд, 1979 – The Roaring Construction Band. This video contains some authentic photos from that period. Performed by the legendary Alexander Gradsky and well-worth listening to! Gradsky has one of the best voices you would ever hear – I promise; and the song is cool, too. I’ve translated a couple of verses:
I’m the fresh wind, the soaring flame,
And it’s our time, my friends.
I wish us luck on our quest
To save ourselves from the indifference.
The joyful tune of the guitars,
A roaring construction band,
As if a fire in the steppes,
The campfires of songs ablaze.
Have a listen:
In the 19th century, the Russian Empire had plans to build the railroad covering the northern part of Lake Baikal and Eastern Siberia and running parallel to the Trans-Siberian. This was a super-ambitious project as such railroad would go through the wild permafrost lands that no man had ever traversed. The project never materialized.
Only in the second part of the 20th century USSR dared it again. On July 8, 1974 the very first rail was set into Siberian permafrost, and BAM was born. Baikal-Amur Railroad went parallel to the Trans-Siberian, but much further north, by the northern shore of Lake Baikal and further into the Far East, towards the Amur River.
BAM was finished before 1991. At that point, USSR collapsed and the new rulers decided BAM was a waste of time and money. The ambitious project was criticized and maligned. BAM was neglected and its enthusiastic, but aging population was forgotten.
However, the times have changed. On July 8, 2014 Russia has celebrated the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the famous construction by starting a new, even more ambitious, line of the BAM railroad.
Vladimir Putin has announced that Russia will spend over $150 bln in order to add another 7,000 kilometers of rails to BAM by 2030. This will complete the railway coverage of the entire Far East. The money for the new mega-project comes out of the Russian reserve fund (specifically, the Russian Commonwealth Fund), which until recently Russia invested in the US Treasuries.
This effectively signals 3 very important things:
1. Russia’s ambitions are back – this is the signal that the country expects growth and robust development.
2. Russia is confirming its Asia pivot – as I’ve been predicting since February 2014. BAM connects Trans-Siberian and Baikal with the Far East/Pacific Ocean and various points in Asia and Siberia. This includes the resource-rich points of the north, as well as potential hard-to-reach tourist destinations.
3. Russia re-affirms that it will stop the silly practice of financing US dollar (which is a form of economic slavery) and will instead use its hard-earned reserves to finance projects inside the country. Finally – it’s about time!
This is a massive shift, and yet another confirmation that the US dollar is approaching its point of no return!
Below is Putin’s Skype with BAM engineers and railroad workers for the 40-year anniversary of BAM. He congratulates them with the anniversary and talks about the $150 bln investment at 13:10. Towards the end, the new leg of BAM is symbolically initiated:

|Below are top 30 countries with the largest foreign exchange reserves, excluding gold, according to Wikipedia. Why is this list important right now? While the US government is in a shut-down mode and default is looming, it is a good idea to examine the real financial situation with various countries. Just like in your household and mine, we determine the solvency of any economy by savings to debt ratio. Which countries are solvent and which are not? What is really going on with the US government debt?
As of 10/10/2013, USA has $16.749 trillion in public debt and only $136 billion in currency reserves. If you or I had this kind of debt to savings ratio, we would have to declare bankruptcy in a hurry. Moreover, no one in their right mind would have lent us this much money in the first place, seeing as we had so little in savings. How does USA get away with it? And how did it manage to keep its AAA rating till relatively recently? Apart from the global financial game being seriously rigged in favor of the United States, the US has been enjoying an unfair advantage no one else has: the US dollar, or petrodollar as it’s frequently referred to, is the world reserve currency. The US can print (or rather add digits electronically) as much as it wants, thus devaluing yours and mine hard-earned savings and destroying the long-term value of the currency, while exporting inflation and financial problems to other countries. However, the US won’t be able to do this with impunity forever. The situation is changing slowly but surely. I’ll talk about that in future posts. More coming!
The numbers below don’t take into account the so-called creditor nation vs. debtor nation status, in other words, the level of debt of any given country. For example, China has by far the largest foreign exchange reserves – almost $3.5 trillion. Over 1 trillion of that is in US dollar. Chinese debt has been rising fast due to the rapid pace of economic growth (which has now slowed down significantly), but compared to China’s reserves, it’s still relatively small. This makes China the larger creditor nation in the world. Russia has a negligible debt, however, its reserves are at $470 billion, which makes Russia a pure creditor nation. Same is true for Switzerland, whose debt is small compared to its reserves. At the same time, USA currency reserves are only $136 billion, while America’s public debt as of 10/10/2013 is $16.749 trillion and rising fast (see US debt clock), which makes it the largest debtor nation not only in the world, but also in human history! Note: if we include US private and corporate debt, the numbers by some estimates will be closer to $100 trillion.
