Some of you loved this song! Listen to Joe Dassin’s Et si tu n’existais pas – and some weekend thoughts…
Dear friends, this post was written by me and scheduled to be posted before the breaking developments in Syria on the night of Apr 14, 2018, as a nice and easy weekend post. I am still going ahead an pubbing it. Unfortunately, the Dark State and morons in charge in the US, UK and France won’t let us enjoy it, but I still want to wish you a nice and peaceful weekend, wherever you may be on the planet.
I still sometimes listen to this and other of Joe Dassin’s songs. They have a very calming effect, and a sort of eternal philosophical quality. In Russia they’ve been perennial favorites, and to this day everyone knows them.
Et si tu n’existais pas (If you did not exist) – with ENG subs
And another one of Joe Dassin classics L’ETE INDIEN (Indian Summer)
Joe Dassin and other romantic French and Italian singers were very popular when I lived in the USSR. Wikipedia says Dassin was born in the US. Yet, as we know, this very talented man managed to become one of the classics of the French chanson. I distinctly recall that Dassin’s family was originally from Odessa (and I mean the REAL Odessa – my native Odessa, Russia, of course). His original family name appears to have been modified when his ancestors moved to the US, and then again modified when he moved to France. Very unusual and eventful family history, I’d say, but then why should I be surprised — just look at my own history.
I am in good company. Generally, the super-generous Odessa-mama gave birth or was an early home to many, many very talented people, but few, if any, ever stayed put. Just some you’d know right away: Leonardo di Caprio’s grandmother was from Odessa; world-famous pianist Valentina Lisitsa grew up in Odessa around the same time I did; also from Odessa is an amazing Russian singer Vitas; Some of the figure skating greats, such as Oxana Bayul, are from Odessa; classic Golden Age Russian/Soviet authors Valentin Kataev, Ilf and Petrov, Yury Olesha and many more grew up and wrote in Odessa; one of the most famous Russian/Soviet movie stars Oleg Tabakov’s family was from Odessa; 1950s film star and singer Leonid Utesov was from Odessa. Russian cinematography basically began in Odessa, with Sergey Eisenstein’s classic silent film Battleship Potemkin, and Alexandr Dovzhenko’s films. The visionary founder of the Russian/Soviet Space program Sergey Korolev, who was behind the first Sputnik, First Man and First Woman is Space went to Odessa Politechnic University – just a couple of blocks from where I lived, but before my time.
You can read more in my classic articles from 2013. They were written pre-Kiev-junta disaster, when Odessa was still Odessa.
Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
French Presidential Elections 2017 dates: 1st round – April 23; 2nd round – May 7.
According to polls, the winners of the first round are projected to be: 1. Marine Le Pen (National Front), who is against illegal immigration, for strengthening of the French national borders and culture, against EU, for recognition of Crimea as part of Russia and for improving and strengthening relations with Russia; 2. Emmanuel Macron (En Marche!) — pro-EU, represents the Rothschilds and globalists, the darling of Western MSM and neo-liberal establishment.
In my 2012 Year of the Elections Predictions I said the following:
Jan 12, 2012: “French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy. Openly right-wing, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.”
March 3, 2012: “French elections, April–May 2012 – Nicolas Sarkozy. No change in my prediction. He’ll still lose the election – more emphatically so!”
April 28, 2012: Finalized French election prediction: “On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election. The next President of France, breaking with the long-standing French tradition of allowing a president 2 terms in the office, will be… Francois Hollande.
Most importantly, with the new man at the helm, the direction of French politics will undergo a certain change. However, I wouldn’t expect TOO MUCH of a change at this time. Real change will come later. Some change to the emigration policy from the poor countries, which is a big problem in many European countries. The European countries will attempt to coordinate their emigration policies and certain border controls will be introduced very soon. But the emigration mess will take a very long time to sort out.
Perhaps most notably, with the new president France will change some of its foreign policy. For one, France will stop playing, forgive the expression, “The French poodle” to the US foreign policy, the role it’s been playing during Sarkozy’s neocon tenure. France will re-acquire its more independent stance on foreign affairs, which it used to enjoy under various other presidents since Charles De Gaulle. And hopefully, France’s policy will acquire a more peaceful flavor, as support for invasions and bombings of other countries wanes.
However, if Francois Hollande fails to fulfill these deep-seated hopes of his electorate, the French people will likely vote him out of the office five years from now. In that case, Marine Le Pen, the rising star of the French politics, emphasizing pride in France, its roots and culture, who’s anti-emigration and anti-war, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.”
FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2017: THE PLOT THICKENS
When I predicted all the above, the French president was still Nicolas Sarkozy and no one believed he could lose to Francois Hollande. I was told that ‘this won’t happen because the French traditionally allow their president two terms.’ A month later Francois Hollande won French Presidential Elections 2012.
But my predictions continued coming true. In 2016 it became clear that Hollande indeed lost so much support that he was forced to withdraw his candidacy from 2017 elections. Still obscure in 2012, Marine Le Pen became the 2017 election frontrunner.
Many have asked me whether my predictions for her have changed since 2012, based on a new reality. Indeed, a number of new faces emerged that weren’t in the picture in 2012… and the plot has thickened.
Conservative Francois Fillon announced a balanced platform, including being in favor of improved relations with Russia. As part of his agenda, he vowed to make sure that there is no new cold war between Russia and the West. His views reminded the French of Charles de Gaulle and the pre-NATO stance of France as a more or less neutral moderator between the West and Russia. As a result, Fillon briefly shot up to No. 1 spot in polls. We know what happened next: an attack designed to bring down Fillon via a corruption scandal implicating his wife and himself. This cost Fillon dearly and his rating plunged to under 20 percent.
Meanwhile, out of nowhere a new face emerged: Emmanuel Macron, who styles himself as an ‘independent.’ Former Rothschild banker, backed by MSM, shadow interests and global corporations, he announced his pro-EU, pro-immigration and pro-NATO stance. He began blaming Russia for hacking and interference in French elections, although when asked for proof, he was unable to present any. Macron also became known for stealing the lines of other candidates, notably from Marine Le Pen and Fillon, and saying whatever his audience wanted to hear at any given moment. This was done in order to undercut rival candidates and confuse voters. The strategy has partially worked and according to latest polls, Macron climbed to No. 1 spot and one point ahead of Marine Le Pen, just one day before the 1st round of elections. His rating hovers more or less in the 24 – 25 percent range.
According to polls and MSM, Macron and Marine Le Pen are most likely to make it to the run-off in May. According to polls, Macron in the second round will beat any other candidate, regardless who it is, Le Pen, Fillon or Melenchon.
Macron has two major advantages: 1. He is the darling of MSM, EU, globalists and shadow forces, with all their unlimited resources and ability to swing elections. 2. He is very young, still in his 30s. During this Period 8 a younger man may have an advantage.
But three factors raise red flags in the rosy picture painted by MSM and establishment on behalf of Emmanuel Macron:
1. In 2016 US Elections, polls and MSM also proclaimed a substantial Hillary’s advantage over Trump, yet Trump won. Are we seeing a similar case of media and establishment collusion to deceive the people?
2. Until several months ago Macron was a nobody in politics. He was built up by a very talented and expensive team of political image makers, whose job it was to create a candidate who would undercut Le Pen’s new French revolution and Fillon’s traditional reason, somewhat akin to Gen. De Gaulle’s, thus allowing the globalists to perpetuate their usual agenda.
3. Since he was slapped together as a candidate pretty hastily, he had no time (nor possibility) to solidify his support. Therefore, Macron’s base is very fluid and undecided, and it can swing to the other side very easily.
All this gives hope to Marine Le Pen, although the newly emerging left-wing candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon has gained dramatically in the past month. Melenchon is touted by some as a French Che Guevara. He has some seemingly radical views, such as exiting EU and taxing the rich. Although lately he softened his stance on EU and he now proposes to ‘reform the EU’ instead of exiting it. This just goes to show how easily politicians proclaim slogans in order to gain votes. What they say during campaign and what they will do later more often than not does not correlate. Just look at Trump before and after. (Listen to my ESR16 and Trump Webinar where I predicted all this would happen. Also there are several good analytical FREE vids on Trump on LadaRayChannel).
The only French candidate who has been honest and steadfast since day one and who has not changed her stance on issues, despite enormous pressure and violent threats, is Marine Le Pen. Love her or hate her, she is the only candidate of the four who has a very stable and loyal base.
Another thing about Marine Le Pen is that, just like Trump, she is most definitely underpolling. In other words, she is not given a fair opinion poll rating, while Macron’s numbers are inflated. Same happened in the US between Hillary Clinton and Trump, which was done to create confusion and attempt to stir voters towards voting for the global establishment’s chosen candidate, Clinton.
Marine Le Pen has withstood all the attacks on her character and all attempts of implicating her in a corruption scandal. Unlike Fillon and his wife’s illegal salary scandal, Le Pen has not lost any voter support as a result of MSM claims of her connection with the Kremlin. Instead of killing her political career, this orchestrated attempt to disparage her may have solidified her support base.
The brave Le Pen even went to Moscow, where she was received by Vladimir Putin. A very bold and unusual move indeed; I don’t recall Putin ever meeting with any major Western presidential candidate before elections. It turned out that such meeting helped Le Pen to shut up her critics.
Another point about Le Pen: apart from the usual nationalistic, anti-terrorism and anti-immigration right-wing conservative crowd, she may surprise by drawing her support in unusual places. For example, according to latest polls, her support among LGBT community increased from 9% to 16.5% as a result of terrorist acts and attacks targeting gays in the US and EU.
Yet another segment overlooked: analysts suspect that Le Pen is likely to be supported by the silent majority of women.
In general, even if we assume that polls are not manipulated, it is most likely that during such polls most people would not answer truthfully who they’d vote for, for fear of retribution. But when the polling day comes, they may end up giving their vote for Le Pen or for another dark horse, Melenchon.
At this time, I am operating under an assumption that there will be an attempt to manipulate this French presidential election. Will it succeed? This will depend on how closely the election is watched and by how large the gap between candidates is.
I agree with polls that Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron will be the first round’s 1st and 2nd finishers (not necessarily in this order). As a matter of fact, it would be better for Le Pen to finish the first round in second position.
Therefore, Le Pen and Macron will face off in the second round on May 7.
I usually don’t change my predictions, once they’ve been made. However, let’s remember that when I initially made Le Pen 2017 win prediction in 2012, none of the present candidates were there, Macron generally having come out of nowhere. Such confusing and fast-evolving political and geopolitical scene is typical of the times of great change — typical of the Great Earth Shift.
Who will be the next French president and what can we expect from her or him going forward? Will France exit EU and NATO? Can we expect an improvement of relations with Russia? Perhaps I’ll discuss all this in the follow-up.
QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS OF FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES 2017
We have previously discussed that Quantum and Geo Calibrations are the best tool for quantifying and comparatively analyzing the energy manifested in our 3D reality.
In EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16 I calibrated both Trump and Hillary before the elections, and based on those calibrations I confirmed what I’d predicted since 2015, that Hillary could not win US presidential election 2016, no matter how many falsified poll results were shoved in our faces.
In Webinar 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? I calibrated Trump’s wife Melania and Jackie Kennedy, to illustrate a point. Below you can see links to other Quantum Calibrations and Geo Calibrations works of mine.
Today, in the run-up to French election, I want to calibrate the French presidential candidates.
Quantum Calibrations – QC; Chi level – CHI; Heart Chakra – HC
Marine Le Pen
QC 409 (reason); CHI 200 (confrontational courage); HC 280 (neutrality/friendliness)
QC 180 (pride); CHI 191 (yearning/striving); HC 180 (pride)
QC 195 (yearning/striving); CHI 190 (yearning/striving); HC 150 (anger/bitterness)
QC 141 (greed/desire); CHI 280 (neutrality/friendliness); HC 181 (pride)
QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS INTERPRETATION
Marine Le Pen calibrations are by far the highest and they are all at, or above, the minimum positive level of 200. Le Pen’s HC value is unusually high for a major Western politician, in fact I’ve never seen this in a Western presidential candidate. If such politicians appear at all, it is indicative of a hopeful shift in the political reality of the West. Based on all this, Le Pen should win this election (recall my 2012 prediction!) unless a voter manipulation and/or fraud takes place!
Macron calibrations are all below the minimum positive level of 200 and they are a match to those of the EU, Merkel and globalist forces who are behind him – no wonder he is their chosen candidate. Compared to Le Pen’s they are way too low and he can win only if fraud and results manipulation takes place. His CHI at 191 is indicative of how much he is yearning and striving to win this election in order to prove that his bosses bet on the right horse. They further show that he is not for real: he is a made-up candidate, with no real voter support and he runs on an illusion created for him by his image makers and MSM.
Fillon calibrations indicate how much he is striving to get out of the bad situation into which he was plunged by the engineered corruption scandal, and how much he wants to prove that he remains a worthy candidate. His HC calibration is bad, but understandable due to his anger and bitterness as a result of the corruption accusation resulting in damage to his political career. While a tad higher than Macron’s, these calibrations are all below 200 and are insufficient to win, if honest election is conducted.
Melenchon QC is very telling – at the level of desire: there is a lot of desire (you can call it greed) to get to that coveted spot, which allows one to get to round 2, or at least, to put one on the political map. HC is only at the level of pride, and this is average for Western politicians. Therefore, if Melenchon won French elections, I wouldn’t trust him or his promises any more than I’d trust those of Merkel (more or less on par with her QC), or those of Obama. The CHI level is remarkably higher compared to other 3 candidates. The CHI calibration denotes Earthly Energy Manifestation. His higher CHI level explains why Melenchon suddenly shot up in ratings, gaining on other candidates after his successful debate and social media appearances.
All in all, Marine Le Pen should be a clear front-runner, as I first predicted in 2012. However, I will not predict how dirty and manipulated this election may become. In this regard, all bets are off.
Wishing the best of luck to the people of France.

KARMA IS A BITCH: US Olympic Team to parade in #Rio2016 in uniforms with Russian flag
In the previous posts I shared with you the sad news:
On a lighter note! And this is actually hilarious – couldn’t invent it if I tried!
All the above notwithstanding, one has to believe there is such thing as karma for lying, cheating and past misdeeds. And so, US Olympic team will parade at the Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony, participation in which many clean Russian athletes have been denied, in uniforms decorated with Russian flag.
The presentation of US Olympic uniforms, designed by Ralph Lauren, generated a storm of agony and biting criticism from American bloggers and social media. ‘What, did we suddenly run out of stars and stripes?’ ‘Did we suddenly become a part of Russia?’ lamented peeved bloggers and Twitter users.
Unfortunately, RL copyright doesn’t allow images copied, so I can’t post examples here. But here are the links:
I have to confess: back in 2014 I was one of those who’d laughed on my blog at the Lauren-designed loud and garish US uniforms in Sochi 2014, with stars and stripes splattered all over. Having been Lauren long-standing customer, I said I wouldn’t shop there any more, due to his new poor taste. Consequently, in 2016 Ralph Lauren decided to prove his taste remained good. And here is the result!
Oops… It turns out that the white, blue and red striped design looks a lot like the Russian flag!
Video: US Olympic uniforms, with Russian flag on their chest
Well, at least I’m shopping at Ralph Lauren again.
P.S. My Sochi 2014 Opening Ceremony post on Lada Ray Blog: Best of Sochi Olympics Revisited: Opening Ceremony and Memorable Victories, with many spectacular images included. In this post I had a few words to say on then US uniforms, also designed by RL (with pic)! Check it out!

FOLLOW LADA RAY’S WORK:
Today I want to say a special THANK YOU to all those who regularly support FuturisTrendcast, Lada Ray Blog and LadaRayLive by liking and commenting! Also, a very special heartfelt THANK YOU to all those who support my work by buying my books and donating! All this helps us a lot!
Thank you all so very much for the enthusiastic and supportive response to my previous post: My Latest Intel: Did US Lose in Ukraine? Is Putin the Best Russian Leader? Do People Prefer Conspiracies to Real Truth?
It’s wonderful to know that my work is appreciated. If I had received this kind of feedback more often, I wouldn’t have any doubts whether I should continue my work. I know it’s convenient to be a ‘silent majority’ as one reader referred to it, but my readers have to understand that if I, in large part, receive only doubtful, confused and/or negative comments, as it has happened in the past few weeks, my feedback is lacking and I may form a distorted picture of my readership.
The audience feedback is the most important thing for a writer (and a teacher). I do it only for you, my readers and fans!
The result of not getting enough positive feedback may be that I simply quit doing this, thinking it’s all falling on deaf ears, or I may lose enthusiasm for continuing this important endeavor. Of course, I much prefer to continue writing and speaking for a long time. I have a lot of insight, knowledge and predictions to share. So, please help me help you! – in the words of Jerry Maguire.
I’ll say it straight for everyone’s benefit: if my readers are interested in my continuing to write articles and post Lada Ray Live podcasts, then please let me know you appreciate it by liking my articles (few do, which surprises me as many more post comments – I would’ve thought liking an article were easier). Certainly, please comment, tell me what you’ve liked in a post, and perhaps, what you would like to see me discuss in the future. Please kindly read blog rules before commenting, especially if you are new.
Note, unlike perhaps many humans, I do not respond well to negative stimuli, such as blame, guilt, anger or fear. Instead, as a highly evolved soul, I respond very well to positive, life-affirming and life-enhancing vibrations, such as enthusiasm, love, appreciation, respect, willingness, reason – and yes – intelligent and interesting comments and questions! Thank goodness, most of my readers are firmly within these fine vibrations.
As one of my readers pointed out: Aeyrie Silver Eagle
Incidentally, did you know, dear readers, that love, appreciation and respect vibrate at the very same level, and that these emotions elevate both parties involved? I will talk more about this and the universal scale of human consciousness in one of my future LRL podcasts, and also in the future EARTH SHIFT REPORT. See more on that below.
Please make sure you also like and comment on Lada Ray Live videos on YouTube!

Additionally, you can support my work by buying my books, and should you feel inspired, you can also consider writing reviews for them on Amazon and BN.
Last but not least, please consider supporting our work by donating.
What’s coming up: I have several articles ready to post and they will be appearing every few days. In my new articles I will make an emphasis on connecting the past, present and future and in revealing new knowledge.
New LRL podcasts are coming soon. We will be expanding the scope and topics of the podcasts to cover the mystical reality and cosmic consciousness. But rest assured, we won’t forget to talk about the pressing earthly matters such as geopolitics and human affairs!
Of course, Russia, Eurasia and related topics will still dominate because of their importance in human development.
Some of you may know that I make successful predictions, but perhaps few know that I have created a whole predictive system, called EARTH SHIFT, which predicts events and pulls from the Universe into the open the hidden truths (some call it Akashic Records). My system helps describe the past, present and future based on cosmic/psychic, historic, geopolitical and esoteric (including feng shui, eastern numerology and astrology) data. This system is something I plan to start sharing incrementally with everyone through FuturisTrendcast, Lada Ray Live and Earth Shift Report on LadaRay.info. This will start happening slowly at first, but it will be soon.
I am presently working on shaping up the future EARTH SHIFT REPORT format. The Putin Enigma report I had promised you will be expanded and the Destiny of Russia predictions will be added to it for a more complete picture. It will be an eye-opening and mind-bending experience for sure!
I am also preparing another Earth Shift Report containing my vision of how the USA collapse will really happen. It will be very valuable to compare this with my reality-based and at the same time, mystical, review of the USSR collapse. I am presently deciding whether to combine both in one report, or to release them as two. The look I will offer you is fresh and uniquely mine. Hint, it’ll be nothing like ‘Reinventing Collapse’ by Dmitri Orlov, although I do highly respect this man and agree with a lot of his analysis. I certainly enjoyed reading his book. It’ll also be nothing like many of the predictions out there, because the US collapse won’t happen the way many predict.
Other Earth Shift Reports are planned as well!
Since the subjects of my Earth Shift Reports are rather broad and deep, they cannot be covered in a relatively limited article form. These reports are for those who want to understand the complete picture of the world around them and the nature of the coming all-encompassing global Earth Shift. They are also for all those who want to prepare properly for the changes to come; those who want to KNOW instead of being broadsided and confused; those who perhaps want to assist the Earth Shift in an intelligent manner – and for that true knowledge is key. And no, these reports won’t be about buying gold and silver ;). Not because I am against these fine metals – I am all for – but because so many already talk about them and it’s not needed to add yet another voice to the chorus. I’ll talk about something more original.
EARTH SHIFT REPORTS will be the size of a small to moderate book. Most of them will be paid in order to help offset the costs of our free blogs and Lada Ray Live podcast, which are basically a full-time job. I want to do it right, so the first paid Earth Shift Report should be appearing on LadaRay.info in the second half of November. Stay tuned for future announcements!
Still, we decided to make some of the Earth Shift Reports FREE. As you know, I have already published a free Earth Shift Special Report: Is Putin Part of NWO? on FuturisTrendcast, which I am sure many of you have read.
The second FREE report that looks into the hidden history of hatred and roots of geopolitical and cultural problems between Russia and Ukraine – is coming in a week or so. This eye-opening topic is completely unknown, and/or it has been twisted in the West, and sadly, in Ukraine as well. Even many Russians have a very vague and often incorrect understanding of it.
Please note, my FREE Earth Shift Reports take a massive amount of time and research to complete. If you enjoy them, please consider donating here to support them, or go to SUPPORT on top bar. Many thanks!
In the future, we plan many more interesting, unique and fascinating projects! Stay tuned for new articles, podcasts and Earth Shift Reports.
Blessings to all,
Added 9/25: Many thanks to Maddie from 1EarthUnited blog for posting these instructions for following a WP blog and for commenting. Hope this helps those who are having a bit of trouble. Also read my additional tips in the comment section of this post.
