Macron Win, Voter Manipulation and Illuminati Symbolism

Macron won French election, as predicted, but with a much larger margin than I saw.

Why? Very simple. As mentioned in the original article The Plot Thickens! Who’ll Win French Election: Marine Le Pen, Macron, Fillon or Melenchon? : ‘However, I will not predict how dirty and manipulated this election may become. In this regard, all bets are off.’

The whole persona and the very appearance on the scene of Emmanuel Macron was a manipulation, as discussed in ESR18: Lada Ray French Election Predictions. The relentless pre-election compromising of various promising candidates, such as Fillon and Le Pen, was also a manipulation. Everything was designed to steer voters in one direction: towards Macron, or towards not voting for anyone, which would have still worked out in Macron’s favor.

There is no way of denying: French people are deeply dissatisfied with the status quo and most of their candidates.

As I explained in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 

Lada Ray French Election Predictions: Le Pen, Macron and EU

This denotes a profound division in French society and disagreement which way to proceed. Such confusion and division are typical of THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT. 

However, the French voters turned out even more gullible and more suggestible than I anticipated, but then, when it comes to predictions I try to give the benefit of the doubt…

Incidentally, this French election reminds me in many ways of the manipulation that occurred during 1996 Russia election that ensured Yeltsin re-election. I’ll talk about this strange parallel in my future book that will reveal lots of things about Putin, Medvedev, Emperor Nicholas II and the Destiny Russia.

It also confirms that my new strategy of sharing my predictions publicly the last possible moment is correct. Otherwise, even more can be distorted by the dark side.

One more remark before we proceed to the guest posts: in ESR18: Lada Ray French Election Predictions I make some bold predictions regarding the future of Macron and Marine Le Pen. If you haven’t yet, check it out. Some things are changeable, and we may return to them in the future, but some are set in stone. One of them is the undeniable continuation of the Earth Shift, which will change a lot on our planet in the following decade.

Practically a mirror image of the US presidential election of 2016, today’s French presidential election pits populist underdog and Trump fan, Marine Le Pen, against establishment insider, Emmanuel Macron.

Macron, manipulation and Illuminati symbolism

Lada, I very much enjoyed your ESR18.

Now you’ve possibly seen this… https://kauilapele.wordpress.com/2017/05/07/french-elections-the-macron-diacritical-mark-wins-illuminati-symbolisms-marks-abound/

—————————————————

Apparently the Macron DM (Diacritical Mark) won (was “appointed”?) by a large margin. So along the way today I saw this video (“All seeing eye” symbolism at Emmanuel Macron victory speech #NWO #LouvrePyramid) which pointed out Illuminati symbolism present in Macron’s speech at the Louvre. So I viewed that video, then found the original he used, here (REPLAY. Discours intégral d’Emmanuel Macron au Louvre). It appears the camera shots were chosen carefully so that much of the time, Macron himself was located directly under the eye of the Louvre Pyramid. According to my count, in that video, it occurred 17 times.

I also noted the following:

00:07 Eiffel Tower appears illuminated red (red-orange?)
00:28 Macron hands up, head under eye of pyramid (first of 17 appearances of this camera shot)
09:35 Spotlights on the stage appear (in this view) to form a pyramid (several views of this)
15:29 Crowd appears to be illuminated in red (this view also occurs several times)

In my view, this greatly supports the idea that Macron is the RIP (Rothschild Illuminati Puppet) President. Perhaps at some point the French people will wake up even more to what’s happening on this planet and eventually, like the US, elect a president that is not so “Illuminati-ated”.

***

From Lada:

Now, I just want to remind everyone that any symbolism in itself is neutral – neither exclusively light nor dark. There is nothing wrong in itself about color red, nor about the eye, nor the pyramid symbolism.

But because some esoteric symbols hold much energy and power, they often get usurped by the dark forces craving that power to manipulate and subdue the masses. This occurred many times in history, and it continues today.

The Truth is the only weapon against such manipulations. 

In this regard, I want to say that France has become one of the breeding grounds and an experimental pad for the hidden manipulations. We’ll talk more about that in the future!

Astrology update is notable!

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 SUMMARY

GO TO ALL EARTH SHIFT REPORTS

WHY PUTIN AND TRUMP ENDORSED MARINE LE PEN

Vladimir Putin Schools Merkel on Geopolitics and Democracy (+ Russian Gas Update)

WHY PUTIN AND TRUMP ENDORSED MARINE LE PEN

Putin meets Marine Le Pen in Moscow

By meeting in person with Marine Le Pen in the Kremlin Vladimir Putin basically endorsed her. The meeting in Moscow was an unusual step by the Russian President. Reportedly, he made an exception following personal request and introduction by the Russian Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin. Volodin was the one who invited Le Pen to Russia pre-election in the first place.

Why did Putin meet with Le Pen – a step almost unprecedented in Russian history? Contrary to the Western accusations of interfering in the US and EU elections, in fact, neither Russia nor the USSR made a habit of meeting major foreign opposition presidential candidates before elections. The US and EU, on the other hand, play such subversive role all the time: interfering in other countries’ affairs is their traditional MO.

But the situation is changing. The stakes are unusually high, as we go through the Great Earth Shift. The rebalancing act Russia – The Great Balancer is trying to execute is very delicate indeed. Under such conditions old rules go out the window. New moves have to be adopted. Russia begins taking the leaf out of the USA’s book.

As we recall, a year or so before US presidential election 2016, in response to a journalist’s question who Putin preferred as US president, Clinton or Trump, Putin replied almost casually, ‘Trump, but,’ he added immediately, ‘it is for the American people to decide.’

That single phrase served as a catalyst for Trump personally and for his electorate, helping alter the dynamics of US elections and tipping the balance in favor of Trump.

​(As you know I predicted Trump victory, as well as the fact that he would experience pressure to conform and betray his election promises, resulting in a ‘straight jacket’ for him and his administration. (Links to relevant Trump ESR16, Webinar and FREE YT videos – if you are new, it is recommended you listen to them.)

When the US Congress, CIA and FBI contend Russia hacked US elections, they are right – it really did happen… by Putin uttering that one phrase. This just goes to show how powerful of an influence Vladimir Putin and Russia – The Great Balancer are on world affairs, no matter how much various forces attempt to isolate or demean Russia’s role.

A simple mention of Trump in a favorable light helped him win. Therefore, a bolder move with France and Le Pen was logical. Le Pen’s visit to Russia and audience with Putin put a nice amount of wind in her wings and helped mobilize her electorate.

However, this time the opposing camp of globalists was prepared. First they twisted into a pretzel the No. 3 finisher Francois Fillon (20%), by compromising him and threatening to bury his entire career. This wasn’t an idle threat – we have seen some years ago how a promising anti-globalist candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn was literally buried alive as a result of a sex scandal. Then, they introduced their own golden boy, Emmanuel Macron. Created by brilliant image makers and PR specialists, Macron is a very good actor. He fools easily all kinds of potential voters.

Donald Trump also threw his support behind Marine Le Pen. To counter that, Obama, who is (believe it or not) very popular in France, called Macron to congratulate and endorse him.

After the first round, Fillon (20% of votes) and fifth finisher, a pretend ‘socialist’ Hamon (6%), both threw their support behind Macron. Only the fourth finisher, left-wing candidate Melenchon (19% of votes) abstained from any endorsements, suggesting his people should vote as their consciousness dictates.

The Brussels bosses and heads of various EU states hastily joined the fray by praising Macron and urging the French to vote for him. After all the attention and praise, Macron couldn’t be more golden if he tried. During his campaign, he hardly outlined any definitive program, instead borrowing the lines from both Le Pen and Fillon, and occasionally from Melenchon, in order to steal their electorate. Macron doesn’t need to have any coherent program – puppets never do. His puppet masters have the program he is to carry out.

The globalists have unlimited resources, including global media, finances, PR, enormous political and economic leverage, global clandestine intel and surveillance, governments and EU bureaucratic apparatus. They can swing elections the way they want through all these obvious and secret means.

By contrast, Marine Le Pen’s resources are much more limited. However, it is clear that people both in France and all over the West are awakening. A proof that people do decide their destiny and their future, regardless of how much powers that be try to manipulate them into continuing to live in an outdated matrix, is the nearly 8 million votes Le Pen received in the first round.

Therefore, Trump and Putin endorsing Marine Le Pen was done to try to even out the playing field at least somewhat.

Let me explain something about Trump. I did predict he would succumb to pressure, start making deals and dilute, if not forget altogether his campaign promises. The ‘straight jacket’ means that Trump and his admin will operate on survival mode going forward. The tunnel within which he has to act is very narrow. In fact (again, as we discussed in WEBINAR 1 on Trump) he has to constantly throw the bone to the hawks and war mongers at the Pentagon, CIA and Congress. It is akin to a growling dog: if you want to pass, you tread softly past the growling dog, while constantly throwing him some food so he wouldn’t bite you.

While Trump caved in quickly (too quickly for most people’s taste), he still has a limited amount of leverage in his position. His calling Marine Le Pen to congratulate her on getting into round 2 of elections is one of those leverages. Through this gesture, Trump has tried to show that he’s at odds with the EU leaders. But just consider how little power Trump really has: the moment he made that call to Le Pen, Obama in turn called Macron to congratulate and wish him victory! Talk about the bifurcation of the elites in the US and EU!

French Election, Macron vs. Marine Le Pen: Why ‘Every Country Deserves its Government’

Marine Le Pen and French national heroine Jeanne d’Arc

NEW ASK LADA EPISODE

Great question from Shaf! Lada, thanks for another great post. I’m very impressed with the accuracy of your posts and if the PTB don’t prevent Le Pen from winning, then you can say you called a Le Pen victory 5 years in advance! A question. In one your previous articles you said that countries get leaders/governments based on the general wishes/energy of the population in total. Am I wrong? So let’s say then the majority of the French did want Le Pen to win but the PTB stopped her, then how does that work? Perhaps overall in the wider picture, then the general policy direction of France will move more to the right in alignment with the general karmic energy/thoughts of the population, regardless of who is leader?

Lada Ray on 

French Elections, Le Pen, Macron, EU, and Why ‘Every Country Deserves its Government’

Many see the principle ‘every country deserves its government’ as something menacing or negative. But it’s neither negative nor positive: it’s neutral. It works both ways – to one’s advantage or disadvantage – and it doesn’t discriminate. It is akin to karma, or rather a self-fulfilling prophecy. Basically, this principle denotes the collective consciousness and the general cumulative energy of the population at work. It simply reflects that we all collectively are co-creators of our present and future.

I know that it’s hard for some to accept that in many ways a population of any country, tribe, territory or town has collectively generated and propelled to power a specific kind of leader, president and/or elite.

Like it or not, ultimately this is always the choice of any given populace. Sometimes the choice is obvious, when majority democratically votes for a specific candidate.

But what about a monarchy, when the title is passed on from generation to generation? In this case the inhabitants of such country agree generation after generation that such and such ruler has the god-given right to rule them. When they stop agreeing on that, monarchy ceases to exist.

Since we are talking about France today, here’s a great example: in the 18th century the French Revolution put a stop to the monarchic rule and established a republic. Throughout much of the 19th century France continued rocking, with the attempts to resurrect monarchy, since the collective energy of the French citizens could not agree on a single most beneficial future timeline. Admittedly, all this happened with a great deal of external interference by the British Empire, Austria-Hungary Empire and Jewish bankers. However, in the end of the day it were the French people who decided they wanted to live in a republic.

Or let’s take Assad and Syria. No matter how much pressure is put externally on Syria, no matter how much he and his constituents are maligned and threatened, the majority of the population still supports Assad as their leader.

On the other hand, if we take the EU, the system has been designed to produce fake leaders, who are robotic bureaucrats. This happens when the majority of the population is zombified and/or lives in la-la land, when the real world’s problems escape them. Incidentally, this is usually a road to slow destruction. In that case, the populace will produce governments to match.

Now, back to French presidential election. It is clear to me that Marine Le Pen has appeared on the French scene not by accident. Her appearance and fast rise are predestined. In fact, the sane people of France and the EU crave politicians of Le Pen’s strength in order to change the landscape of Europe. The problem is that the old establishment is so far too strong and the percentage of zombified populace is still too large in order for a meaningful change to occur.

However, recall what I predicted in ESR12 re. BREXIT and the Future of the EU: it is a slow and relentless ‘rickety chair effect.’ Slowly, the chair is being more and more destabilized – until it actually falls apart.

The fact that it’s so hard for either candidate, Le Pen, Macron or anyone else, to get a clear majority means that the French population is torn between conflicting choices. It may be clear to us and to those nearly 8 million French citizens who voted for Le Pen, but the rest is either too misinformed, brainwashed or confused. As a result, there is no collective consciousness consensus, or said another way, there is no clear sense of direction France, as well as the whole EU, needs to take.

France is torn between the past and the future. Part of it is a stigma attached to Marine Le Pen’s father and her party (incidentally, that’s why she announced her resignation – I’ll tell you more in upcoming ESR18!). But for the most part it’s all about hanging on to the past and being fearful of change. Some don’t want to give up the cushy lifestyle they came to enjoy as part of the EU; some are afraid to lose all the perks and freedoms the EU allows, such as one currency and open borders.

However, others consider these ‘perks’ to be a burden, and possibly even existential threat, due to the fact that various terrorists and subversive elements may now be able to seep through such open borders, or because one currency and one government restricts national choices, personal freedoms and trade options of any given country. There are additional considerations, such taxes, immigration, social assistance, preserving national and cultural identity, NATO interventionism vs. neutral non-alignment with military blocks, etc.

France’s curse is that it’s Europe’s permanent No. 2. It is one of Europe’s largest economies, with its distinct and rich culture and heritage, with a lot of national pride and talent. Yet in every alliance it has ever entered it always was resigned to playing a second fiddle. With Antanta during WWI it was the second fiddle to the UK; in WWII it was something like a tag along 4th fiddle to three main Allies (USSR, US and UK). In the EU, it’s the second fiddle to Germany.

We can say that the French basically thrived the most when they made an effort to be independent. In recent history it was under Charles De Gaulle and a few of his successors.

Incidentally, it has to be absolutely understood that the phenomenon of De Gaulle and his proud nonaligned, non-NATO, independent of the US/UK/global banksters stance was only possible due to the existence of THE SOVIET UNION, a very strong superpower, which served as the counterweight to the West. The moment Soviet Union was destroyed, France by itself began caving in to pressure from the Anglo-American consortium. Considering how many times this caving in to foreign pressure and partial or complete loss of sovereignty occurred in history, this is something the French resent dearly.

Therefore, if the French at large were smart, they’d get it that only strong Russia – The Great Balancer serves as guarantor of their continued sovereignty. I am not even talking about being grateful for all the support Russia/USSR gave France in the past (alas, gratitude isn’t fashionable in today’s world of Western egoic neo-liberalism).

Perhaps because of this, three out of four major candidates proclaimed their goal of improving relations with Russia. Yet – oh, irony! – Emmanuel Macron, the pro-EU, globalist candidate who stands for confrontation with Russia, won the first round. And it is behind this candidate that the majority of other candidates threw their support in the end.

Even more ironically, the French election front-runner is a younger, slicker, more slippery and more charismatic version of Hollande – the man the French voted out of office during his first term, whose approval now stands at 4%!

Compare him to Marine Le Pen, a rare French politician who truly gets it. This is why she has been so pro-Russian in her statements and campaign promises. In fact, recall what I predicted a while back (in 2014 or 2015, I think): forget the old division into leftists and rightists. That should be left in the 20th century. Presently, the defining factors for who to vote for are: how a candidate or party positions itself in regards to the issues of sovereignty, globalism and relations with Russia. THIS is your ultimate litmus test.

Per Lada Ray’s EARTH SHIFT THEORY, human society has become incredibly imbalanced and lopsided towards unabated individualism and egoic consumerism, which in the end will unavoidably lead to the ultimate loss of all freedoms through the Western-style globalist project, unless Russia – The Great Balancer rebalances the planet before it’s too late.

Who will France elect as new president? France’s choice will tell us whether the population deserves a better government and a better future.

OR, whether France will continue reliving the classic definition of madness: making the same mistake over and over again and expecting a different result. We will discuss all this in upcoming EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18.

The Plot Thickens! Who’ll Win French Election: Marine Le Pen, Macron, Fillon or Melenchon?

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.

Abbreviations:

Quantum Calibrations – QC; Chi level – CHI; Heart Chakra – HC

Marine Le Pen 

QC  409 (reason); CHI  200 (confrontational courage); HC  280 (neutrality/friendliness)

Emmanuel Macron

QC  180 (pride); CHI  191 (yearning/striving); HC  180 (pride)

Francois Fillon

QC  195 (yearning/striving); CHI  190 (yearning/striving);  HC 150 (anger/bitterness)

Jean-Luc Melenchon

QC  141 (greed/desire); CHI  280 (neutrality/friendliness); HC 181 (pride)

(Find complete legend & calibration value interpretations in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17 Quality of Life Worldwide: Lada Ray Geo Calibrations)

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.

Per My 2012 Prediction! French Elections and the Rise of Marine le Pen and National Front

It’s official!

Marine le Pen’s National Front wins the first round of regional elections with a national total of about 30%. It’s ahead of Sarkozy’s Republican Party and the trailing ruling Socialist Party of Francois Hollande. National Front gained sharply in the past 3 years and is expected to win again in the second round of these elections. The result has stunned the two traditional parties.

Even if National Front doesn’t win (and barring some huge and almost impossible surprise, such as Sarkozy and Hollande uniting against le Pen, it will win round 2!), Marin le Pen’s star is clearly rising very quickly and definitively, while Hollande’s is plunging, as I predicted in 2012. Back then I also predicted the turnaround of the French policy – and it’s coming. When French policy changes dramatically, it will sweep the change into the rest of the EU. Of course, fully this will happen later, but it’s a good start!

If you think that French regional elections don’t decide that much, it’s true. Regional elections are not very significant per se, but they are considered an important litmus test and dress rehearsal in the run up to the French National Elections of 2017.

marine-le-pen

Marine Le Pen, Member of the European Parliament:

Marine Le Pen is a French politician who is the president of the National Front. Her party was third-largest political party in France in 2011. It grew into the largest party by 2014. More in Wikipedia

Videos with more details

Marine le Pen’s National Front:

I want to note that what passes for ‘far right’ in France, in fact is a tough, but sensible and reasonable conservatism. What’s important is that it’s outside of either neocon or neoliberal ideology presently dominating the West.

Marine le Pen wisely took steps to soften the image of her party by dismissing her party’s tough far right ideologist, who, interestingly enough, happens to be her father and the founder of the National Front. This attracted scores of new voters. Le Pen is a consistent proponent of good relations with Russia, who’s also for France’s sovereign and independent policy. She is a huge critic of the EU in general and Angela Merkel’s policies in particular; USA and NATO skeptic.

In 2012 I had predicted the rise of Marine le Pen and her party.

Here is a quote from my French Presidential Elections 2012 article in which I predicted that Sarkozy would lose and Francois Hollande would win elections.

Excerpts from April 28, 2012 article:

2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone

“Updated prediction:

In a very funny twist, I am predicting that in the second round socialist Hollande (left) will take some of Marine Le Pen’s (far right) votes, along with the fourth place finisher votes (far left).

Seemingly, it doesn’t make any sense. But: the vote for Hollande is a vote against Sarkozy. This is a protest vote, pure and simple. Because, as I said in my January 2012 prediction: “[Sarkozy is] deeply disliked in his country and [that’s why he] will lose.” The French simply don’t want another five years with him.

In addition to Sarkozy’s ineffectual domestic policies and his foreign policy that is both too America-centered and too bellicose for the liking of the French electorate, there is also another reason. As mentioned before, the crisis in the EU continues to deepen and that spells disaster for the incumbent Euro leaders. So far, 9 governments have been ousted due to the European crisis, including Greek, Italian and Dutch. There are more to come. For Sarkozy, this spells the perfect storm.

CONCLUSION:

On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election (which, based on his reaction after the first round has been a surprise only to him, but no one else). 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. There will be SOME change in the French attitude towards the EU and Eurozone. 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, as well as in Russia. 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 is anti-emigration and anti-war, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.”

In 2012 I also predicted Barack Obama’s win, as well as Vladimir Putin’s win with the exact percentage of votes.

‘Gave Americans a Blow Job For Nothing?’ Polish FM Sikorski Leaked Tape Scandal

Poland has been firmly in bed with the USA for years. I call Poland, together with the neighboring Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, the “Trojan Horses of the US in Europe.” Polish government has been known to support the Kiev maidan and the ousting of president Yanukovich. Polish officials both former and present, including former president of Poland, made ardent speeches on Kiev maidan, expressing extreme anti-Russian views and fostering hatred towards anything Russian.

The Polish Foreign Minister Sikorski was always considered anti-Russian and pro-American. In the 1980s he was fighting in Afghanistan on the American and the Taliban side against the Soviet forces and Afghanistan government. Since then, he exchanged his gun for the diplomatic suit, becoming an exemplary US Trojan Horse…

All of a sudden, it turns out Sikorski has been saying officially not exactly what he’s been thinking, and doing not exactly what he’s been wanting to do. The leaked tape published by a Polish publication shows Sikorski speaking with a former colleague. In the tape he says that Poland has been giving ‘the Americans a blow job’ for years in return for nothing. This, says Sikorski, has lulled Poles into a false sense of security. Meanwhile, Poland is sacrificing for the sake of the relationship with the USA  the most important relationships it has, those with Russia and Germany – creating enemies out of neighbors.

Indeed, Polish ultra-nationalism has been completely out of control for years, both on state, and every day, level. It is very visible in the media and in the statements of politicians. Polish ultra-nationalists sometimes turn violent. A couple of years ago during the football World Cup in Poland, the Polish mob attacked Russian fans. As a result, many received injuries.

In light of all this, the leaked tape is quite scandalous and revealing. As such, it has made the first pages of all Polish publications.

Sikorski went on Western TV to deny that he ever said anything of the sort. While denying the tape, he nevertheless stated that the “Old World” has to unite, and stop listening to America. Europe has to decide its own policy and take care of its own security; it has to stop relying on the US.

This seems like a shocking and almost revolutionary statement coming from a Polish politician. It is known that 48% of the Polish population disapprove of the pro-American government of Donald Tusk. We all remember a scandal when it turned out that Polish territory was used (still is?) by the CIA for its illegal prisons. It is known that Polish territory is widely used by the US and UK to train opposition bloggers, pro-Western media, NGO and Fifth Column specialists, who would then go to their respective countries to undermine regimes US wants changed. These specialists are primarily trained for Russia. We also see the results of their handiwork in today’s Ukraine. Of course, they also infiltrate Belarus, Baltics, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Moldova, as well as Eastern Europe: Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, etc. The main goal of the Fifth Column is to promote “American and Western values” and undermine – read bash, malign, vilify – Russia; to foster hatred towards Russia, re-write history and create animosity. They must do very good business.

Can it be that the realization of what Poland has turned itself into is slowly dawning on the natives? Could it be that some Poles are beginning to realize at least some truth? Let’s hope so. Although after 20+ years of Poland’s sleeping with the devil, I am understandably cautious about such supposition…

In any event, I do strongly suspect that Poles are secretly terrified of the monster they helped create in Ukraine, together with the US and EU. They probably are shocked (if I were them, I would be) at what became of Ukraine after they had actively trained and financed the opposition, including the ukro-nazi ‘right sector’ militants. Those same nazis that burned people alive in Odessa, and those who kill people in Donbass. Poland still maintains a claim on part of western Ukraine with the capital in Lvov. The ‘right sector’ are the descendants of the Hitler era ukro-fascists from SS Division Galichina, the so-called ‘banderovtsi,’ who killed hundreds of thousands of Poles in western Ukraine. I don’t know how any decent Polish people can possibly feel good about what ukro-nazis are doing today.

I had several Polish friends and I had been to Poland at least four times. But this was over 20 years ago. At the time, I didn’t notice any anti-Russian sentiment or animosity; quite the opposite – my Polish friends were always extremely warm and hospitable. In this regard, I didn’t feel any different than in Russia. Poles were always opinionated and high-strung, but they were still a great company to hang out with. I very much enjoyed our friendship – we had a lot in common, much more than Poles admit to themselves today. Yes, there were some historic tensions, but they were kept in check by the conscious efforts of both sides to remember similarities before differences.

All this ended in the 1990s. Differences and problems is what USA exploits best. This is the old, time-tested strategy of divide and conquer. Once American NGOs moved in, and once the willing politicians were found, who did everything the US told them to do, Poland became progressively more and more anti-Russian and pro-American. Remember the 2003 Iraq invasion and the “coalition of the willing” the US formed out of its vassals through threats and coercion? Poland was a very willing part of it.

For many Russians, what appeared to be a sudden Polish turn to Rusophobia caused a shock similar to what they had experienced when they woke up one day to discover that Ukrainians became anti-Russian practically overnight. This shock wasn’t as painful; after all, Poles are not as close to Russians as Ukrainians are. And of course this didn’t happen overnight – it took about 10-15 years to nurture this hatred. The work started still in the 1980s and culminated in the early 2000s. Not every country succumbed to propaganda. Bulgarian, Serbian and Slovakian people, no matter how much anti-Russian propaganda is dumped on them, remain pro-Russian; but unfortunately, not their governments.

Poland succumbed very easily. In Ukraine it took a bit longer, but not by much.

Hatred destroys something very important in people’s hearts and minds. Can the trust be rebuilt? Perhaps. Russians tend to forgive easily. I don’t know about Poles. In any event, looks like the wind is changing and people are starting to come to their senses. Let’s just say I am cautiously optimistic. I have to say, it will take much longer, and much more evidence, to change my present scepticism regarding Poland into something truly positive.

After years of… how do I say it without getting into the sex terminology… umm… In other words, of doing you-know-what with the US, Poland is finally acknowledging what has been obvious to others. Poland’s future is in cooperation, not confrontation, with Russia and Germany, among other neighboring countries. It’s future isn’t so much in bed with someone’s uncle from across the Atlantic.

Sometimes a leaked tape is not a bomb, but rather a political signal. The conversation in question actually happened in the beginning of 2014, but the tape was only leaked a few days ago. I believe that Poland is ready for regime and political wind change. The leaked tape by Polish FM, a known Rusophobe, serves as a signal meant for Russia and Germany, as well as France, that Poland will play ball.

Considering how actively Poland was pushing US agenda in Europe for years, oftentimes clashing and overriding its bigger neighbors France and Germany, this is an interesting signal. Will it amount to anything, or will “uncle” McCain now appear in Warsaw, as he just recently materialized in Sofia, after which Bulgaria promptly froze its participation in the Russian South Stream pipeline project? Or they could send Victoria Nuland to “subvert” Poland, like she did with Ukraine. It does appear very easy for the US to scare any “European leader” into doing the US bidding.

Let’s see for a moment what’s happening in the EU. France announced that it will deliver two Mistral carriers to Russia over the US objections; one of the major French banks formed a partnership with Russia and is ready to pay $8bln in sanctions to the US for doing business with Russia. US is putting a lot of pressure on France regarding anti-Russian sanctions. The French are very angry at the US. They are suffering massive business losses because of these sanctions.

It helps that Marine Le Pen won Europarliament elections, defeating the incumbent French president Hollande’s Socialist Party. I predicted Marine Le Pen rise back in 2012, in the same article where I predicted Sarkozy’s presidential election loss and Hollande’s win. I also said that Hollande is likely to fail the deeply cherished desires of his voters, and could eventually lose to Marine Le Pen. See my 2012 France predictions: 2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone.

Incidentally, watch Marine Le Pen! She is only warming up. I see her as the only hope for constructive change in Europe this decade. Considering Angela Merkel has completely dropped the ball, and most others are bought-and-paid-for, she is the only big politician who can really influence the whole Europe.

Speaking of Germany. As I said before, it reminds me of a deer caught in the headlights. In one of my previous articles about Merkel I said that she is scared of something, possibly of the responsibility she can’t handle, but also possibly, of some scandals that can come out – remember, she was (still is?) the subject of a massive NSA surveillance. What secrets of hers did NSA record during their illegal wire-tapping? On this blog we deal with facts. One such fact is that at times, Merkel acts as if she is on the US payroll. Otherwise, how does one explain her latest statement that the German gold is perfectly fine at the NY FED? Merkel withdrew Germany’s request that US delivers some of German gold it holds in trust for Berlin. That’s after US failed to deliver more than 5 tons out of 1400 tons of gold it holds in trust for Germany, practically admitting to the entire world that all foreign gold has been squandered! Why would Merkel do that? Blackmail and threats come to mind.

At the same time, German business has been screaming bloody murder over the anti-Russian sanctions. A quiet revolt is brewing in Germany and some other EU countries.

Slowly, Europe is starting to muster a tiny bit of courage to express its desires. This incredible timidness demonstrates vividly how much Europe really is under the US thumb.

Even American companies are starting to seriously worry that US anti-Russian sanctions will undermine American economy. US-Russia annual trade is only $20bln. Russia-EU trade is $420bln. If US companies are protesting, imagine what EU companies feel!

Of course, it’s easy for the US to manipulate Europe for historic reasons. Having started two World Wars in the 20th century alone, western Europe is mortally terrified of a new massive conflict on the continent. They don’t trust themselves, it seems. Remember what I said – fear, greed and other lowly emotions is what US exploits best. Therefore, Europeans have to snap out of their fearful ‘deer caught in the headlights’ mode and start behaving on the level of reason! Only then the situation can be resolved.

Just yesterday, US Secretary of State John Kerry again threatened Russia. He said that Russia must disarm(!) rebels in eastern Ukraine, otherwise there will be a new round of sanctions. He probably means that Putin MUST go to Ukraine and PERSONALLY disarm anyone who US disapproves of, to please Kerry, Obama, McCain, and other imbeciles in Washington. That does not concern ukro-nazis from the ‘right sector,’ because these SOBs are “US approved” SOBs.

Can anyone even begin to imagine the level of imbecilism of the idiots like Kerry? I think he attended Harvard? Bravo, he totally lives up to the elite American ivy-league education!

Jokes aside, the Washington idiots are extremely dangerous because they are holding the financial and military levers, through which they can ruin any country they please. The US is threatening to block Russia from using the SWIFT system – the US and petro-dollar controlled international system of payments, which is the world monopoly. Just imagine the levers in the US hands! US can threaten any country to be cut off from SWIFT, resulting in a serious damage to that country’s economy. What a perfect blackmail position! As an example, Iran is cut off from SWIFT as part of US-imposed sanctions.

No single country must be allowed to hold such unfair advantage over others.

SWIFT is what a country uses to pay for imports and international trade. If Russia cannot use SWIFT, she can’t sell gas to Europe. To this day, Russia sells gas to Europe for dollars(!), despite trying to transition to rubles for years. Do you know why they can’t? Because US is putting huge pressure on the EU. If Russia is suddenly cut off from SWIFT monopoly, it can be catastrophic for both Russian and EU economies. Russia would be forced to halt the gas flow until EU agrees to pay Russia in rubles. This will take time, and massive sabotage by the US has to be expected.

The way gas pipelines work is that the pipe has to maintain a substantial pressure in oder for gas to continue flowing. This is achieved by a number of measures. If you stop gas flow cold turkey, it’s very hard and expensive to re-start it. That’s why Gazprom prefers not to do it. Turning off the switch is a very cumbersome and costly proposition.

EU countries will be threatened not to agree to the ruble-based trade. It is clear why: this is a direct threat to the dollar. If dollar collapses, this threatens the very existence of the US Empire. Of course, the collapse of the dollar is a matter of when, not if. But US will be trying to delay it for as long as possible. As I discussed many times before, US will try to drag down with it everyone it can. Russia is first on the list. EU – including Germany, France, Italy, Austria, and poor Poland, too – second.

Next, US will say: see, we told you so! Russia is a very unreliable business partner. It stopped the flow of gas to Europe, just as we warned you! Instead, we will sell you OUR OWN shale gas! We are your old allies and biggest partners. We are all a part of NATO! Work with the US! And if you don’t… And then, there will be threats, which may, or may not, convince the EU countries to fall in line.

What will happen next: EU economy will be undermined. Russian economy will be undermined. Who wins? US and Canada, as it happens every time there is a war or crisis on the European continent. I have warned about this same in my previous articles. The saga continues.

On a more optimistic side:

Austria just signed a deal with Russia to build the Austrian section of South Stream. In an interview a few days ago, a Hungarian journalist said that in truth, everyone in Eastern Europe wants to have Gazprom pipeline go through their territory. This provides lots of badly needed jobs, money flows into the country, gas gets cheaper; there are many other benefits, including possible future projects with Russia. But at that very moment, Uncle Sam comes in and starts steamrolling through these small countries, intimidating and buying up politicians and businesses. Call it US mafia, invasion, or slavery – it doesn’t get any less disgusting.

Other moderate positives: Czechia and Slovakia said they will not place US AMD missiles on their territory, directed against Russia. Hungary has been vocal against some of the policies they don’t like in the EU, including the Ukraine crisis. Although Hungarians succumbed to the pressure to stay in the EU, these first timid steps can be considered an attempt to regain sovereignty. By how a country behaves in such circumstances we can easily see how much independence and sovereignty this country has.

For example recently, Senator McCain visited Bulgaria, after which Bulgaria promptly announced that it was freezing its participation in the South Stream project with Russia (gas pipeline being built to bypass the uncertainty of Ukraine in order to deliver Russian gas directly to southern and central Europe). This pipeline would be a life-line for the fledgling Bulgarian economy. Therefore, such announcement after the McCain visit means only one thing: Bulgaria has no sovereignty whatsoever. It does what its masters in Washington tell it to do. Romania agreeing to place American AMDs on its territory, despite Russia’s objections, is another indication of the same.

In this regard, we can see clearly how little sovereignty Poland has, if in order to signal the change, they need to resort to a leaked tape. Still, better than nothing…

Therefore, I am making this cautiously optimistic prediction: Europe is waking up little by little. The US influence in Europe is slowly waning. Russia and EU must, and will, continue getting closer. US will try to sabotage this process, so brace yourselves.

Here is my advice to the EU politicians and media. If you are scared, remember this: US can only cause trouble and get to you, if you yourselves have ulterior motives, or if you are not acting in good faith. They are masters of exploiting fear, anger and greed. Don’t allow them access to these lowly emotions. Plus, work with, not against, Russia – and there is nothing they’ll be able to do.

For as long as I can look back, Russia has always carried the biggest load, and paid a disproportionately heavy price for getting the world back into balance. Russia single-handedly won WWII (allies only opened the second front in 1944, when it wasn’t necessary any more as Soviet troops had already chased Hitler almost back to Germany). Peace prevailed, but 27 million Soviet people had to die for that; the country was practically destroyed. I was just having a discussion with a Chinese friend. I reminded him that if not for Russia, Chinese might have been speaking Japanese today. It was only thanks to Russia’s massive help, know-how, troops, equipment and money that Chinese were able to liberate their country from brutal Japanese occupation during WWII.

For years, Russia had been the No.1 exporter of talent and brains. The rise of the US science, art and sport is all thanks to the emigration from Russia, as well as other countries. For example, one of Google founders is from Russia. How many Russian scientists emigrated to the US since 1990s (thanks to Soros grants)? I lived in Princeton for many years. The entire famed Princeton University’s Institute for Advanced Studies, where Einstein worked, is staffed with Russians. How many Russian classical musicians and ballet dancers have elevated the art in the West? The rise of the American and European gymnastics and figure skating is all due to Russian athletes and coaches, some of whom I have known personally. Russian oligarchs – fronts for Rothschilds, BP, Exxon and others – siphoned enormous wealth out of the country and passed it on to their Western bosses, thus enriching the West and impoverishing Russia (and Ukraine too).

Now, Russia and Putin are trying to keep peace, when US is trying to drag the world into the last war, and Europe is timidly hiding behind mommy’s skirt.

Enough already! Start taking responsibility for your own future, people!

RT video about the Polish FM leaked tape: ‘Gave the Americans a blow job for nothing’: Polish FM in tape leak scandal

 

Lada’s 2 Cents: Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is trying to save the world from war. We should all help him.

New article by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Reagan’s Asst Treasury Secretary and Father of Reaganomics: Can Putin’s Diplomacy Prevail Over Washington’s Coercion?.

I have come to respect Dr. Roberts tremendously for the work he does and for his ardent desire to tell the truth. It is amazing, coming from a former Washington insider, Wall Street Journal editor, and one of the top mainstream American economists. But we all grow. I was a financial consultant on Wall Street, too; the years I spent there woke me up to the dirty underbelly of the world like nothing else.

By Paul Craig Roberts: June 24, 2014.Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is trying to save the world from war. We should all help him.

Today Putin’s presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov reported that President Putin has asked the Russian legislature to repeal the authorization to use force that was granted in order to protect residents of former Russian territories that are currently part of Ukraine from the rabid Russophobic violence that characterizes Washington’s stooge government in Kiev.

Washington’s neoconservatives are jubilant. They regard Putin’s diplomacy as a sign of weakness and fear, and urge stronger steps that will force Russia to give back Crimea and the Black Sea naval base.

Inside Russia, Washington is encouraging its NGO fifth columns to undercut Putin’s support with propaganda that Putin is afraid to stand up for Russians and has sold out Ukraine’s Russian population. If this propaganda gains traction, Putin will be distracted by street protests. The appearance of Putin’s domestic weakness would embolden Washington. Many members of Russia’s young professional class are swayed by Washington’s propaganda. Essentially, these Russians, brainwashed by US propaganda, are aligned with Washington, not with the Kremlin.

Putin has placed his future and that of his country on a bet that Russian diplomacy can prevail over Washington’s bribes, threats, blackmail, and coercion. Putin is appealing to Western Europeans. Putin is saying, “I am not the problem. Russia is not the problem. We are reasonable. We are ignoring Washington’s provocations. We want to work things out and to find a peaceful solution.”

Washington is saying: “Russia is a threat. Putin is the new Hitler. Russia is the enemy. NATO and the US must begin a military buildup against the Russian Threat, rush troops and jet fighters to Eastern European NATO bases on Russia’s frontier. G-8 meetings must be held without Russia. Economic sanctions must be put on Russia regardless of the damage the sanctions do to Europe.” And so forth.

Putin says: “I’m here for you. Let’s work this out.”

Washington says: “Russia is the enemy.”

Putin knows that the UK is a complete vassal puppet state, that Cameron is just as bought-and-paid-for as Blair before him. Putin’s hope for diplomacy over force rests on Germany and France. Both countries face Europe’s budget and employment woes, and both countries have significant economic relations with Russia. German business interests are a counterweight to the weak Merkel government’s subservience to Washington. Washington has stupidly angered the French by trying to steal $10 billion from France’s largest bank. This theft, if successful, will destroy France’s largest bank and deliver France to Wall Street.

If desire for national sovereignty still exists in the German or French governments, one or both could give the middle finger to Washington and publicly declare that they are unwilling for their country to be drawn into conflict with Russia for the sake of Washington’s Empire and the financial hegemony of American banks.

Putin is betting on this outcome. If his bet is a bad one and Europe fails not only Russia but itself and the rest of the world by accommodating Washington’s drive for world hegemony, Russia and China will have to submit to Washington’s hegemony or be prepared for war.

As neither side can afford to lose the war, the war would be nuclear. As scientists have made clear, life on earth would cease, regardless of whether Washington’s ABM shield works.

This is why I oppose Washington’s policies and speak out against the arrogance and hubris that define Washington today. The most likely outcome of Washington’s pursuit of world hegemony is the extinction of life on earth.” PaulCraigRoberts.org

Lada’s 2 cents:

To the question: Can Putin’s Diplomacy Prevail Over Washington’s Coercion?

My answer is: YES, but it will be a long and difficult going. And, YES, I agree with Dr. Roberts – Putin and Russia need our help. Enough for Russia to always carry the burden of fighting the Western aggression alone!!! It happened too often in the past. This is for all of us and we must not sit idle! The alternative is the end of humanity, as I said in my previous article: Judgment and the Future of Humanity.

Is Putin correct in placing his future and that of his country on a bet that Russian diplomacy can prevail over Washington’s bribes, threats, blackmail, and coercion?

Putin is absolutely correct, but again, this will be a very tedious, risky and nerve-racking process. Washington’s games are disgusting and dangerous – their goal is to destroy not only Russia, but to damage as much of the world as possible. It is clear why. They know the US economy situation is dire. IF they can export at least some of their problems – something they’ve been doing successfully for decades, and if they can create crises in other countries, they can tell their own population: “See, it’s even worse somewhere else.” Besides, Europe’s predisposition to wars is well-known. So, if they succeed in starting a serious conflict in Europe, US and Canada stand to make billions upon billions, just like during WWI, WWII and the Cold War.

However, I predicted that Russia will resolve the geopolitical GROUND ZERO situation in Ukraine via “peaceful and quiet means” from the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis. See PREDICTIONS and my early Ukraine articles for more.

Yes, Putin and Russia will pull it off. But I want to stress again and again: they need everyone’s help! Everyone should share the truth with as many people as possible; tweet, FB, re-blog; write to your Congress/ Parliament (in Europe) representatives; write to newspapers and alternative media!

A word about Merkel, Hollande and EU: Merkel has completely lost my respect; most other EU leaders are useless US stooges. It was disgusting how Bulgaria’s president kissed McCain’s you-know-what during his recent visit, announcing afterwards that Bulgaria would withdraw from South Stream – the Russian gas pipeline, which can only be seen as a “lifeline” for Bulgaria. France’s Hollande isn’t much better. But US angered the French so much by their unreasonable economic demands and extortion, that Hollande can’t afford to behave openly as a “French poodle” to the US any more. If he does, he would be booted out of office in no time. The only voice of reason in France, and perhaps the only hope on the European continent, is Marine Le Pen, who won the Europarliament election, unseating Hollande’s party. By the way, I predicted this turn of events in the same 2012 article in which I predicted Sarkozy’s loss and Hollande’s win. Read here: 2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone.

I am preparing new articles about the geopolitics of the Russian gas pipelines, and about Marine Le Pen and other politicians. Coming soon!

 

Announcement: People in Russia, Ukraine and all over the world are now meticulously documenting all the crimes of the Kiev junta, ukro-nazi right sector and other fascist organizations, Ukraine media, oligarchs and politicians, the military, as well as all those who are helping them. These are documented via YT videos, photos, eyewitness accounts, articles, white papers and physical evidence. Work on the future international tribunal, which will try these criminals for crimes against humanity, has already begun. I do my part by telling the truth about Ukraine and translating into English the real voice of the people. Everyone’s welcome to participate.

2012 Predictions. Year of Elections: Russia, France – USA next!

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

Okay, time to brag… ;)

So, the Russian and French Presidential Elections are over in the exact way I predicted.

I said back on 1/12/2012 (and reiterated on 3/3) that Vladimir Putin would win another term with low-to-mid 60% of votes because the majority of Russians want stability, which Putin represents, and due to the fact that he and the ruling United Russia party would make all the right moves in the run-up to the elections on March 4. I also said that the allegations of fraud and protests would continue, no matter what.

That’s exactly what happened. United Russia made all the right moves before the elections, allegations of irregularities (most of the time unproven or outright fabrication) and protests are ongoing… and Putin won with 63.6% of votes.

It should be mentioned that the analysts projected him to take the votes in the high fifties. 63.6%, higher than expected, seemed to have surprised and overwhelmed President elect himself and analysts alike.

Putin’s next presidency will be very different from his 2 previous terms in this turbulent decade and in this ever-changing world of ours. I hope to cover the future of Russia, Eurasia, the BRICS and its influence on the direction of the world in one of my subsequent posts.

French Presidential Elections (4/22-5/6/2012) just ended. In my posts of 1/12, 3/3 and 4/28/2012 I predicted that Nicolas Sarkozy would lose the election due to the crisis in the Eurozone, failure of his neocon policies and general dislike the French electorate feels towards him. I also said that in a bizarre twist, socialist Hollande would take part of the far right Marine Le Pen‘s votes, because that would be the only way Hollande could win.

I also said that there would be certain changes to the French domestic and foreign policy, as the country will stop playing the “French Poodle” to the U.S. and will slowly re-aqcuire its more independent stance.

Everything happened in the exact way I predicted. Marine Le Pen, courted by Sarkozy for votes, refused to endorse him. Hollande won narrowly, but convincingly, due to some of her votes. Changes in France’s internal and especially external policies are widely expected, although, as I said, don’t expect too much all at once. It will be gradual and slow and real changes will happen later. Hollande already stated that he wouldn’t be a problem for the fellow left-winger (arguably) Obama – at least in the election year. Heads will likely start rolling in 2013. ;)

Some of the changes in the French policies will affect Eurozone, the BRICS and USA very directly, and I hope to discuss all that in my future predictions, where I’ll also cover German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chances of winning theGerman elections in 2013.

To refresh your memory of my previous posts, where I cover all this in more detail, please read them here:

1/12/2012:  YEAR 2012 PREDICTIONS

3/3/2012:   2012 Predictions Update: Russian Elections

4/28/2012: 2012 Predictions Update: French Elections and Eurozone

In conclusion:

So what can we expect from  the upcoming U.S. Presidential Elections on 11/6/2012? I predicted on 1/12/2012 that the Republicans would pick Mitt Romney and that Barack Obama would beat him NARROWLY in November. By narrowly I mean no more than 5%. Most likely 3% or less. For more about that, read my earlier predictions above. I am planning a couple of updates later this year, one is entitled, Ron Paul‘s Big Mistake” and another will be posted closer to November. In it, I’ll also discuss the USA and the world after the elections.

I am still hoping to release my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS – AFTER 2012 later in the year, time permitting. I will also try to cover some of my other predictions for this very stormy and unpredictable decade here, on my blog. But, since I have too many predictions, too little time, we’ll see how it goes.

Stay tuned! :)

Prediction: 2012 French Elections & Eurozone

Reblogged from source: LadaRayBlog

I am interrupting my GOLD TRAIN BLOG TOUR today for an update on my predictions for the French Presidential Elections, April 22 – May 6, 2012.

On January 12, 2012 I posted YEAR 2012 PREDICTIONS on this blog. Included were the “big three” elections for the so called Year of Elections, namely Russia, France and USA.

Read the original post: Year 2012 Predictions

The Russian Presidential Elections have already taken place on March 4.Vladimir Putin won the elections in the exact way and with the exact percentage of votes I predicted. But I’ll brag about that on another occasion ;)

After all, this post is all about French Elections.

As a reminder to my readers, I do not belong to any political party and consider myself a political atheist. My analysis is based on observation, logic, intuition and the Ancient Chinese System of Long Cycles (CSLC).

Nicolas Sarkozy

So, here’s what I said on January 12, 2012 regarding the incumbent French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his chances to win another term:

“France, Presidential Elections, April 22-May 6, 2012: French President Nicolas Sarkozy, together with Angela Merkel of Germany (whose re-election is not until 2013, and I’ll talk about her chances on another occasion) will do everything in their power to reassure the Europeans and the markets in 2012, and will pull a rabbit out of the hat, if necessary. Watch for various announcements from the Eurozone, directed at flooding the system with cheap money, more bailouts, etc.

However, the Eurozone crisis will deepen, with more countries teetering on the brink of collapse, and French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy.

Openly right wing and considered the only neo-con able to win the election, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.

Again, in case anyone’s wondering, Sarkozy’s Chinese Zodiac sign is the HORSE. Maybe, that’s why the long face. ;)

Just kidding, all you, fabulous Horses, out there! The Horse is a very cool and fortunate sign!”

I have also posted an update on March 3, the day before the Russian Elections, in which I updated my outlook for Putin’s chances, as well as Sarkozy’s outlook.

Here is what I said:

French elections, April 22 – May 6, 2012 – Nicolas Sarkozy.

U.S. State Department code name: Emperor Without Clothes.

At this time, no change in my prediction. He’ll still lose the election – more emphatically so!”

Read the 3/3/12 update: 2012 Predictions Update: Russian Elections

So what’s happening in the French Presidential Elections? So far, it’s playing out exactly as I predicted. Nicolas Sarkozy only received 26.5 percent of votes in the first round and finished a humiliating second for an incumbent. SocialistFrancois Hollande received over 27.5 percent, and far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen, the rising star of French politics, finished third with a surprise 18 percent!

Francois Hollande

In the second round Sarkozy and Hollande will be vying for the votes of the third and fourth finish candidates.

My updated prediction:

In a very funny twist, I am predicting that in the second round socialist Hollande (left) will take some of Marine Le Pen’s (far right) votes, along with the fourth place finisher votes (far left).

Seemingly, it doesn’t make any sense. But: The vote for Hollande is a vote against Sarkozy. This is a protest vote, pure and simple. Because, as I said in my January 2012 prediction: “[Sarkozy is] deeply disliked in his country and [that’s why he] will lose.” The French simply don’t want another five years with him.

In addition to Sarkozy’s ineffectual domestic policies and his foreign policy that is both too America-centered and too bellicose for the liking of the French electorate, there is also another reason. As mentioned before, the crisis in the EU continues to deepen and that spells disaster for the incumbent Euro leaders. So far, 9 governments have been ousted due to the European crisis, including Greek, Italian and Dutch. There are more to come. For Sarkozy, this spells the perfect storm.

CONCLUSION:

On May 6, Nicolas Sarkozy will lose the election (which, based on his reaction after the first round has been a surprise only to him, but no one else). 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. There will be SOME change in the French attitude towards the EU and Eurozone. However, I wouldn’t expect TOO MUCH of a change at this time. Real change will come later, but predictions about that – in another post.

Some change to the emigration policy from the poor countries, which is a big problem in many European countries, as well as in Russia. 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.

General Charles De Gaulle

In conclusion, I also want to mention that 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.

Marine Le Pen

In that case, Marine Le Pen, the rising star of the French politics, emphisizing pride in France, its roots and culture; anti-emigration and inti-war policies, is likely to win the following elections in 2017.

The next 2012 Predictions update is coming in May, after the French elections.

Stay tuned!
