Nancy, you answered your own question. Nothing to add really.
But let’s broaden our perspective. The reasons for this move are as follows:
1. This is a general knee jerk reaction to the fact that they know they are losing and they have to show their teeth. There is no Russian aggression. If anything, just the opposite. But this is a cornered beast’s reaction to something they can’t control any more. This is the spoiled global bully’s reaction who always managed to terrorize others without recourse and suddenly it gets told that this won’t happen any more.
2. Erdogan’s threat to boot out US/NATO from Incirlik Base is relevant to this knee jerk reaction.
3. In addition, this is the continuation of the same anti-Trump time bomb installation, in order to make relations with Russia as difficult to normalize as possible.
4. This is also done to reassure NATO that it won’t be abandoned by the US – something NATO fears greatly. NATO is in panic: they may lose many of their fat gigs and much of their self-importance if Trump pulls financing.
5. Finally, this is done to reassure Merkel, Poland, Baltics, Romania and Brussels – in short, all the E. Europe and generally EU puppet states, who were installed by US/West in the 1990s to keep the Iron Curtain alive and well. These are the governments and politicians who sold out to the shadow forces and who now fear being abandoned by Trump. They have so many skeletons on their closets that now they are afraid to be left without US tanks.
7. IMPORTANT! However, it’s not Russia they are afraid of. Russia continues underscoring with all her behavior that there will be no Russian intervention either in Ukraine or any other place in E. Europe, despite the pleas of many people in Ukraine and beyond.
What these sold-out E. Europe/EU politicians are afraid of is the wrath of their own people. This will happen the moment US tanks and US advisors leave.
Therefore, the fear of the ‘potential’ Russian aggression is just a cover to dupe their electorate and to distract the people from internal problems. In reality, all these politicians, military, intelligence and MSM are afraid of their own people and of the ‘potential’ and ‘probable’ crimes tribunal.
8. ALSO IMPORTANT!
I have to underscore again that Angela Merkel is very important in this new development. She will stand for re-election in 2017, while her ratings have plunged lately, as I predicted they would, back in 2014. This is due to her disastrous domestic and international policies, most importantly: 1. due to her immigrant policies; 2. her support of the Kiev junta and illegal coup against Yanukovich; 3. her support of anti-Russian sanctions.
Merkel bet all her money on Obama and on being a US puppet, as well as the puppet of the global banking cartel. Her job has been to keep EU under control of these forces.
She also bet her entire career on the NWO and neo-liberal agenda. And this is what will bury her career. She feels threatened due to alternative parties gaining on her. Both left and right hate her; same is true for people in her own party.
She needs US tanks to keep her safe and to stop any possible uprising.
9. In general, all these NWO/US puppet EU politicians now feel under threat. Trump announced he would be against globalism, and that he would curb the US financing of NATO. Trump is also gearing to undo much of Obama’s ‘legacy.’
NATO and Obama have to show that they are still relevant. In fact, all this is a death throes hysterics.
Notice also this: masks are entirely off!
Remember all this talk about ‘AAMDS in Europe’ – one of the cornerstones of Bush-Obama policies for EU and NATO? Russians for years have been saying that the AAMDS installed in Romania and agreed to be installed in Poland, was directed against Russia. NATO/US have been adamantly insisting it was directed against potential Iran aggression against EU. In reality no one ever believed that.
Now, having been cornered, having lost their former control over global, Middle Eastern and European events, they don’t pretend any more. Fake Iran threat doesn’t cut it any more. They need a much bigger enemy. To distract their own populations from their real problems and to redirect their anger and fears towards fake external threats, they need now to point the finger at Russia. Russia had been used as a scapegoat to scare the populations in the West into submission and maligned this way since forever. I’ve seen it all my life; generations before me have witnessed the same.
Meanwhile, the only thing the populations of Europe, and of the US as well, have to fear are their own sold-out governments and media.
Unfortunately, we are dealing with some very aggressive beasts here, who won’t give up without trying to drag everyone into the abyss with them. They won’t succeed long-term, but short-term they’ll try to do whatever damage they can.
P.S. Incidentally, much of the same is happening now in Ukraine. Kiev junta is behaving both violently and bizarrely, indicating the worsening death throes.
Amid all this ugliness, there is a big and beautiful silver lining. It seems darkest before the dawn, but don’t let that fool you. Both in the US/EU and in E. Europe/Ukraine/Moldova big changes are afoot.
I know last year I promised a major Ukraine, Moldova and Pridnestrovie update. I want to share with you all some hugely positive breakthrough news from the latter two and also a lot of news from the former. The Earth Shift is underway, and Ukraine/Moldova are shifting right on schedule, per my 2014-15 predictions!
Please stay tuned for important updates. I’ll probably do them as YT videos.

Lada Ray Predictions! Erdogan-USA Rift to Widen. Vanga’s Prophecy: Turkey-Russia War and End of Turkey?
The video below is self-explanatory and it echoes what we’ve discussed in Lada Ray Reveals Putin’s Secret! Why Putin Did Nothing After US Expelled 35 Russian Diplomats?, as well as in multiple Earth Shift Reports. Putin’s very subtle and smart strategy of working with Erdogan, despite attempts by the US coalition to put a rift between Russia and Turkey, is bearing fruit.
Of course, Turkey is now playing a game with the US, and it may short-term agree to certain bribes in exchange for the prolonged US/NATO stay at Incirlik Air Base. This is also a way for Erdogan to try and get some additional bargains from the incoming Trump administration.
But the issue runs much deeper. It is part of an existential crisis within NATO and within the entire Western model of international relations. In other words, it is part of the ongoing EARTH SHIFT.
LADA RAY LONG-TERM PREDICTION ON US & NATO AT INCIRLIK:
Turkey will eventually boot US/NATO out of Incirlik Air Base. This will serve as one of the decisive nails in the NATO coffin. This will take a few years (2-3, most likely) but it’ll happen.
Similar revolts against NATO and certain other Western-imposed institutions, such as EU and Western-based banking system, will soon begin in other countries of Europe and beyond.
VANGA’S PROPHECY – WHAT I SEE
Reader question about Vanga’s prophecies:
kznwatch So maybe the Bulgarian prophetess Vanga, meant something different to what most of us understood, when she prophesied that Turkey would war with Russia? That at first it would seem Turkey and those supporting it, would gain the upper hand, but that Russia would vanquish Turkey completely and Turkey would be fractured into a number of different states… anyway, that’s what I remember about this prophesy of Vanga’s. I always have rather grave concerns about Erdogan.
1. Erdogan is difficult and hard to trust, but he has many buttons to push. He also isn’t stupid. US and allies made a lot of mistakes with him and he knows he can’t trust them. On the other hand, he knows he can trust Russia and Putin – see ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR for the full spread. They literally tried to make him into Gaddafi 2.0. Putin saw it and played it just right.
2. Erdogan also sees the writing on the wall for where the wind blows in the future, which is away from the US and towards Russia.
3. Vanga is awesome – love her dearly – but she wasn’t always right. Plus Bulgarians always had an emotional hatred towards the Turks due to the Ottoman invasion. Also, the problem with long-term prophecies is that there are too many variables and the timeline changes. Spreads are very large.
4. War may have been cosmically ‘intended’ through all past provocations and Turkey-Russia rift attempts of which I wrote in ESRs and FT articles. Vanga may have seen that timeline, where US/Saudi provocations do succeed and Russia reacts differently. But as we see, Putin has dealt with the situation and turned it around. I expected no less of him and Russia.
LADA RAY PREDICTIONS:
- ABSOLUTELY NO WAR BETWEEN TURKEY & RUSSIA. THIS WON’T HAPPEN.
- THERE MAY BE SOME MINOR FRACTURING OF TURKEY IN THE NEXT 5-10 YEARS, BUT NOT TOO MUCH.
- RUSSIA ISN’T INTERESTED IN THE BREAKUP OF TURKEY AND WILL DO EVERYTHING TO KEEP TURKEY AS INTACT AS POSSIBLE – THIS WAS FIRST PREDICTED IN ESR7.
- PERHAPS TURKEY WON’T REMAIN 100% INTACT AS WE KNOW IT TODAY, BUT NOT FULLY FRACTURED EITHER. AGAIN, DON’T UNDERESTIMATE ERDOGAN AND THE POPULATION’S SUPPORT FOR HIM! SOME LESS VALUABLE INLAND TERRITORIES MAY POSSIBLY SECEDE AND BECOME KURDISH – BUT NOT MUCH (and this isn’t a guarantee either). HOWEVER, THE MOST VALUABLE COASTAL LANDS WILL REMAIN UNDER TURKISH FLAG DURING THE NEXT 10-20 YEARS AT LEAST.
- I DON’T WANT TO GO BEYOND THAT AS IT IS MORE COMPLICATED AND EARTH WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE KNOW TODAY.

Explosive Consequences of Putin-Erdogan St.Petersburg Meeting and Earth Shifting Changes it Foretells!
Addendum to ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR
EXPLOSIVE CONSEQUENCES OF THE 8/9/16 PUTIN-ERDOGAN MEETING IN ST. PETERSBURG
& THE EARTH SHIFTING CHANGES IT FORETELLS!
Putin and Erdogan met in St. Petersburg on August 9, 2016. The meeting followed the failed Turkish coup and an equally failed double attack by Ukraine on Crimea, which occurred between 5 and 7 of August. Erdogan made sure he emphasized that Russia was the first country he visited after surviving the coup. This is diplomatic speak to underline the special importance of said country.
Just prior to the meeting, Erdogan threatened to boot out US military from Turkish NATO bases and instead, let the Russians use them. A turnaround especially stunning, considering Turkey’s long-standing NATO membership and the 2015 story with Turkey shooting down the Russian Su24 and killing the Russian pilot.
Throughout ESR13, you have read all about these developments, complete with my secret intel, theories and revelations. When I released ESR13 on August 8 just before the Putin-Erdogan meeting, I also explained the staggeringly important role this meeting and Turkey-Russia negotiations would play in the ongoing Earth Shift (also see TRENDS & PREDICTIONS). Changes of great magnitude are afoot, and Erdogan-Putin meeting is one of the harbingers.
In this addendum I will tell you what really happened during the Erdogan-Putin meeting.
Erdogan repeatedly called Putin ‘esteemed Vladimir’ or ‘esteemed Russian President Putin,’ which is a very Middle Eastern way of offering an olive branch and underscoring how important the counterpart is to you. Putin, as far as I could tell, echoed that just once with ‘esteemed President Erdogan.’ No first name basis here.
In the report I predicted that Russia would be cautious with Turkey after the Su24 incident. The signal on the Turkish side was very clear: ‘we very much want to make up and be in good graces again.’ On the Russian side: ‘sure, we are all for it, and here are our immediate signs of good will, but other than that, we’ll see how you behave going forward, shall we?’
Before departing to Russia for the meeting, Erdogan made an announcement that much time was lost and that Turkey was eager to get back on track with two extremely important projects: Turkish Stream and Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant.
The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (Turkish: Akkuyu Nükleer Enerji Santrali) is a nuclear power plant under construction at Akkuyu, in Büyükeceli, Mersin Province, Turkey. It will be the country’s first nuclear power plant. In May 2010, Russia and Turkey signed an agreement that a subsidiary of Rosatom — Akkuyu NGS Elektrik Uretim Corp. (APC: Akkuyu Project Company) — would build, own, and operate a power plant at Akkuyu comprising four 1,200 MW VVER units. Engineering and survey work started at the site in 2011. The construction of the first unit was to begin in 2016, with the four units put into service in 2022–25. In 2013, Russian nuclear construction company Atomstroyexport (ASE) and Turkish construction company Ozdogu signed the site preparation contract. The official launch ceremony took place in April 2015.
In ESR13 we discussed the mis-adventures of South Stream and Turkish Stream, along with reasons why it was so important for the US and Germany to sabotage them.
Akkuyu is a somewhat different story. Russians gave Turkey an amazing deal as part of the pre-2015 push to get Turkey on the Russian side and away from US influence. Part of the deal was that Russia would finance and build the power plant, with profits for its exploitation deferred for a number of years. The deal was an absolute windfall for Turkey, which would greatly reduce, or eliminate all-together the long-standing energy shortage basically for free. Then Turkish treacherous actions took place, including ISIS/Daesh help and the shooting down of Su24. Throughout the meeting, Erdogan kept referring to it as ‘the unfortunate event.’
Erdogan and other Turkish officials/businesspeople arriving to Russia all confirmed how eager they were to restart both Akkuyu, whose construction was supposed to begin in 2016, and Turkish Stream. Too much time has been lost, Erdogan kept repeating like a mantra.
In other words, they acted exactly as I predicted. Meanwhile, Russia also acted as I predicted: willingly, but cautiously.
Russians agreed to restart the Akkuyu project. A large part of the negotiations was behind the closed doors, to avoid various sabotage attempts from the same parties that organized Su24 downing and the Turkish coup. I am sure many details of various deals will never be announced before the deals actually materialize into reality. However, the general intel I have received is that Russians have renegotiated the earlier deals in a more beneficial way, since Turkey came back in a greatly weakened position.
Turkey is equally eager to get back on track with Turkish Stream. “We lost a lot of time” was repeated over and over in a somewhat contrite (amazing for a Muslim country) manner. Turkey underscored how much they wanted to get back to the lucrative international project Russians practically gifted to them in 2015.
However, that’s when a bucket of cold water was dumped on Turkey. Putin has re-affirmed that Russia remained committed to Turkish Stream, but only if and when Turkey obtains written legal guarantees from the EU that Europe wants Russian gas arriving via Turkish Stream and that EU cooperation is forthcoming.
Russia has also confirmed that they will restart Turkish Stream where it concerns Turkish internal gas supply only. In other words, for now the project is scaled down to the bilateral Russia-Turkey pipeline. Turkey, as I pointed out in previous ESRs, is suffering from energy shortages and high consumer energy prices. This includes electric power, as well as fuel for heating and cooking – many still use wood-burning and very polluting old-fashioned stoves, even in big centers such as Istanbul and Ankara. Therefore, it’s a necessary project, but not of the scale and scope that was initially intended. However, the same surveys and foundation used for Turkish pipe can be used later to expand it to continue to Europe, when the landscape changes. And it will change.
Additionally, it’s actually good to advertize officially the scaled down version of the project – this may, at least in part, discourage future attacks by the US. It’s a hybrid war and rule number 1 is: don’t advertize your moves to the enemy.
As I explained in ESR13 above, the sabotage of South Stream, and later of Turkish Stream, were necessary to delay the breakup of the predatory US Empire. South Stream – Turkish Stream would give a lot more sovereignty to Southern and Central Europe, leading to the weakening of the EU with subsequent breakup, and in turn, weakening US positions.
And another breaking news! As Turkey was proclaiming how eager they were to restart Turkish Stream, Bulgaria suddenly announced that they have again changed their minds and were now ready to host South Stream (read the entire story of Bulgaria’s flip-flop and South Stream sabotage in ESR13 and in ESR7: The battle for Eurasia! TURKISH CONUNDRUM). In other words, suddenly there is eager competition between countries to host Russian pipelines. Add to that Germany and Nord Stream 2. The healthy competition is very good, and it will push one of these projects through that much faster. I already told you in ESR13 which project it will be…
Here are two important questions for you to consider, which, once answered, will reveal the true meaning of this big geopolitical game. They’ll explain why ukro-nazi coup in Ukraine had to be executed, why Su24 had to be shot down and why Turkey, EU and Russia had to be kept as enemies:
1. Why is suddenly Bulgaria so brave and wants back into the Russian gas game, after having chickened out the moment Uncle Sam said ‘No’?
2. What will happen to Ukraine after all these projects go through and its old Soviet pipeline becomes obsolete?
1. Make no mistake: Bulgaria really wanted to host the very lucrative South Stream and its refusal to do so is due only to its absolute lack of any sovereignty. Bulgaria is suddenly so brave because this is election time in the US. At this time, US is distracted with the elections and the sell-out Bulgarian government thinks they could sneak in South Stream unnoticed. But just think how puppet and spineless it really is if a simple visit by John McCain had previously put a stop to South Stream. I think South Stream is still preferred, and I can see that Russians may be thinking along the same lines. But its continuation may only be possible when this puppet government is replaced with a very different, sovereignty-minded type of government. Due to the nature of Bulgaria as an extremely apathetic and inertia-ridden state, this will take a while.
2. After pipelines bypassing Ukraine are built, Ukraine will stop having as much value to the US and they’ll drop it as a hot potato, which in turn will cause the bandit regime of ukro-nazi Kiev junta and its pro-US oligarchic clan to implode. This will free up the genuine forces of liberation and Ukraine will make a swift turnaround towards its historic, political and economic ties with Russia. The problem with the territory we presently refer to as Ukraine is that it is an intrinsic part of the Russian World that was successfully infected with a virus of hatred towards everything Russian. Ukraine was targeted specifically because Russians never concealed how important Ukraine was to Russia. The US/West’s logic: If Ukraine is that important, then it is necessary to tear it away. This was why the 2014 Kiev coup was necessary from USA’s standpoint.
One of the major difficulties of dealing with Ukraine’s situation for Russia right now is the fact that the all-Russian/Soviet infrastructure was built as one system, spanning all ex-republics. Therefore, Russian gas pipeline to the EU ran through Ukraine, delivering at its height up to 70% of Russian gas to Europe. Now it’s down to 25% or so. This was a major pressure point against Russia throughout 2000s. You may remember the sudden gas stoppages as a result of Ukraine’s sabotage and stealing of European gas. The manipulation of Russia by the US and various anti-Russian interests through the Ukraine pipe reached staggering proportions, culminating in the 2014 coup.
Therefore, getting the pipe away from Ukraine is a blessing for all: Russia, EU and Ukraine, as well. Ukraine, or what’s left of it, will finally be left alone and allowed to rebuild itself (probably as several separate states and territories associated with Russia).
Therefore, one way or another, more pipelines bypassing Ukraine will be built no matter what. The only question is which countries will end up benefiting from the pipeline going through their territory. This will be determined by how quick on their feet and cooperative these countries are, plus, how smart and sovereign they are. As I said, I know which pipeline will be built first – and it’s all in the report!
In addition to all the above, Turkey continued asking for Russia to remove bans on tourism, air traffic, Turkish agricultural produce imports and Turkish construction companies working in Russia. Turkey made a killing in these areas and Russian money really supported Turkish economy, until Russia put the bans in place following the downing of the Su24.
Russians promised that they would be removing bans little by little. Read: depending on how you behave, we’ll see what we can do. For the time being the tourism ban has been removed and charter flights to Turkey may be resumed soon. However, the terrorist warning for Turkey is still in place and only the most brave dare to go there. Russians aren’t in a hurry to let construction and produce imports back in: they’ll give more time for domestic companies to strengthen and take bigger share of the market.
Unthinkable just recently: Turkey-Russia cooperation in Syria!
After the meeting with ‘esteemed Vladimir’ Erdogan announced that Turkey is inviting Russia to fight jointly against ISIS/Daesh in Syria. This is yet another move by Turkey to spite US and NATO, following earlier threats to boot US troops out of Turkish bases, and after a clash with Germany.
This is a staggering, unthinkable just recently announcement! After all, Turkey just recently helped ISIS/Al-Nusra/Muslim Brotherhood terrorists and Syria/Assad has been Erdogan/Turkey’s mortal enemy. Read all about that in ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.
We may soon hear announcements about certain Russia-Turkey joint missions. In my view, Russia will continue being cautious with involving Turkish militarily, until they are sure they can trust them. However, getting Turkey on Russia’s side in Syria and Black Sea vicinity – and on these new, more favorable to Russia conditions – is a huge, huge, HUGE win.
It’s also a HUGE humiliation and loss of face for the US. It has already, and it will continue leading to the weakening of the US and NATO.
We should expect Turkey cooperating with Russia in shutting down its border to Syrian terrorist supplies, oil, money and weapon smuggling. We can also expect better cooperation in securing Black Sea, such as not allowing certain US military ships through and cooperating in allowing faster passage for Russian ships through the straits. All these are still stop-gap measures. As I explained in the report, the issue of Black Sea and Straits has to be resolved in principle: all outsider military ships (read: US military ships, since no other outside country does that) have to be banned from entering. Only the military ships of countries bordering Black Sea should be allowed in Black Sea.
The extreme value of Black Sea, and therefore, the frantic activity around it, is due to one factor only: it is the soft and vulnerable underbelly of Russia. Therefore, surrounding Russia with unfriendly regimes has been US/UK strategy for hundreds of years. I explained how it all works in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
The value and relative vulnerability of Crimea is derived directly from the same. The recent attack by Ukraine on Crimea is correlated with the rest of the events we’ve talked about. I am preparing a new Earth Shift Report, which will address the recent attacks on Crimea, why they happened and why now, who benefits, how it will impact Ukraine’s future, how US elections may be impacted, and whether Russia will sever diplomatic ties with Ukraine. We’ll also discuss the future of Crimea. Expect the new ESR: THE CRIMEA FACTOR in August 2016.
Keeping up with pretenses, the US State Dept announced that they were not bothered by Turkish cooperation with Russia at all, and that ‘US strategy in Syria didn’t change.’ However, that is not because US feels just fine about Turkish move. If it were up to them, Erdogan would be dead right this moment and pro-US Turkish generals would be in power. It’s simply because they are out of options. This is a serious defeat for the US Empire.
That said, US won’t leave Turkey alone. It will attempt more coups, terror acts, etc. Same goes for Russia. And remember, Russian elections are coming. Moreover, US elections have a direct bearing on all these events as well. How? Stay tuned for new Earth Shift Reports, in which all this will be revealed!
Why Putin chose to meet with Erdogan not in Moscow but in St. Petersburg
Perhaps very subtly, this is also a message. St. Petersburg was once founded by Peter the Great as then landlocked Russian Empire’s first serious international port in the Baltic Sea, designed for the new Western-prevalence era of 17th -20th centuries (in prior millennium, the ancient Rus peoples, with their multiple centers of influence, of course, had various ports on different continents). Peter called the St. Pete port: ‘a window to Europe.’
The new strategy of the US/West has been to shut and bolt down this window to Western Europe, creating a New Iron Curtain from Baltic to Black Sea via a cordon of unfriendly to Russia regimes. It was a partial success, with Romania, 3 ex-Soviet Baltic mini-states and Poland joining the cordon. A snag happened in the middle of the Baltic-Black Sea Iron Curtain, when Czechia, Slovakia and Hungary wisely decided to stay neutral to kind-of-friendly to Russia. It also turned out that converting Belarus into anti-Russia didn’t work no matter what. But Ukraine became the clincher. After 2004 color revolution, only a partial success was achieved. In 2014 the success was complete with a total Ukraine subversion. Turkey and Bulgaria were also supposed to be part of the Iron Curtain. Bulgaria turned reluctantly, only with a partial success, while Turkey refused to be easy.
The grand total of this entire scheme is that the Iron Curtain isn’t working as well as the Transatlantic masters want it to work. Moreover, it is so shaky it may just topple any moment at one’s slight touch. The most important factor in the unreliability of this flimsy Iron Curtain is that Russia/Putin refused to play by West’s rules and began creating their own rules, thus changing the reality around them and beginning to fulfill Russia’s true destiny as the Great Global Balancer and Stabilizer.
Therefore, we see a signal, which, it appears, few have understood: Turkish president Erdogan, who was supposed to be responsible for locking down the Black Sea end of the Iron Curtain, meets Putin in his native city of St. Petersburg, the place where Russia’s biggest Baltic Sea ports are, often called ‘Russia’s window to Europe.’ In the more modern terms: Nord Stream 2 is to be laid through the bottom of Baltic Sea; Turkish Stream – through Black Sea.
Consequently, the recipient is known and the message is: ‘The New Iron Curtain has failed.’
P.S. Why following Erdogan’s visit Putin met with Armenian president
On August 10, one day after the breakthrough meeting with Erdogan, Vladimir Putin received president of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan. As I also said in the above report, on August 8, one day before Erdogan, Putin met in Azerbaijan with Iranian and Azeri presidents.
As usual, nothing happens by accident in the global chess game. Armenia and Turkey are mortal enemies. So are Iran and Turkey. Azerbaijan and Armenia, unfortunately, are also enemies, with continuing armed conflicts. All these mutual animosities are used by outside forces to manipulate various countries against each other and to destabilize the region. By contrast, Russia’s goal as the Global Balancer, is to stabilize and harmonize the region and the whole planet.
By meeting with Armenian leader right after all others, the relative closeness of the EAEU member Armenia to Russia is underscored. A signal is sent that Russia’s deals with Turkey or Azerbaijan do not mean Russia has forgotten her ally Armenia. At the same time, by meeting neck to neck with leaders of all these rival countries, Putin sends a signal of cooperation and unification to all of them.
‘It’s much better to cooperate and get along’ is Russia’s message. Enough with the archaic ‘divide and conquer,’ used by the US Empire. A better way, based on cooperation and mutually beneficial, peaceful relations, is shown by Russia. The world is tired of wars and people aren’t blind. They can see that Russia is the only country that can unite – as opposed to divide – various countries.

Austria’s constitutional court has overturned the result of May presidential elections that saw an independent candidate narrowly snatch victory from a right-wing party leader. The annulment is an unprecedented move by the Austrian court, based on technicality. It took place after an extremely contested and close election, when the Green Party’s Van Der Bellen, running as independent, won by a margin of 30,000 votes. The result has been successfully contested in court by the right-wing candidate Norbert Hofer.
In May 2016 the former Green Party head Van Der Bellen, who participated in elections as independent, ran against the ruling centrist party, the popular socialist party, as well as the candidate for the right-wing, euroskeptic/ anti-emigration party, Norbert Hofer.
In a stunning development both of the traditional parties – the ruling centrists and the socialists – lost in the first round. This reminds me of Marine le Pen’s win in the first round of the French local elections.
The second round saw two remaining candidates, both from formerly fringe parties, competing: Van Der Bellen and Norbert Hofer. Van Der Bellen, who trailed Hofer in the first round, won by the slightest of margins when he received the votes of others who were against the far-right agenda. In the September election rerun Hofer is very likely to win.
For those who aren’t familiar with Austrian political landscape, The Green Party is a leftist party. Both traditional centrists and socialists in fact represent the political CENTER, as it is commonly understood today. Meanwhile, as I said many times previously, what passes for the far-right in most EU countries – except Poland, Baltics and Romania – are in fact just very conservative and isolationist parties.
Europe, which is extremely afraid of the resurgence of fascism (rightly so), and of communism (that’s silly), has kept both left-wing and right-wing parties on the fringes.
LADA RAY PREDICTIONS and TRENDCAST
Since 2012 I have predicted the resurgence of the right-wing (see my predictions re. Marine Le Pen in France).
Several years of ongoing EU crises, as it always happens during such times, brought the right-wing movement out of the shadows. In this regard, there is a certain resonance with how Hitler came to power in the devastated and humiliated post WWI Germany.
To mention that which is hidden from most eyes: the rise of the right-wing, global extremism and various revolt movements are absolutely typical for PERIOD 8. You may have heard me mention this term, which I base on the secret knowledge of the esoteric master Chinese numerology and Feng Shui known to only a few masters worldwide. However I’d never expanded on how it works and what it means within my Earth Shift Theory. I will explain it eventually.
In my latest Special Predictions Video EARTH SHIFT REPORT 12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU (recorded on June 19-20, 2016) I’ve continued expanding on the rise of the right-wing political parties. I explained what role such right-wing resurgence plays in the EU revolt, and how left-wing and right-wing could (and should) work together, instead of against each other, in order to change the system in a meaningful way.
In THE FUTURE OF THE EU I also discussed my assessment and predictions regarding political movements: 1. ‘Centrists’ are universally hated in the West due to their NWO and neo-liberal/ neocon association. The vast majority of parties that have traditionally been in power in the West are tainted.
In ESR12 I also predicted that the traditional 20th century labeling of parties as ‘centrist,’ leftist,’ or ‘right-wing’ is archaic and will go away soon. Eventually, any party or movement will be judged by their attitude towards Russia, EU, a country’s sovereignty, emigration, NATO/GMO/TTIP and various associations, US hegemony and dollar. These will be the key criteria for the voters determining how to vote, not the usual party labels!
Is the new fascization of Europe possible? Is a new Hitler or Napoleon possible in the EU? Is a repeat of WWII possible in Europe? These are the fears of many.
My firm prediction: it is not possible. The contemporary right-wing parties, as I said, are not physically aggressive comparative to the aggression of Hitler and typical fascists/nazis (just compare them to Kiev ukro-nazis). They are more of intellectual right-wingers. This is a Fourth Dimension (4D) approach, which moves the conflict into the realm of the mind. (Read Lada Ray Multi-dimensional Theory: 3D-4D-5D).
Moreover, the resurgence of the right-wing is a defensive mechanism against the EU crisis and emigration. Such fast resurgence of the right is only possible during times of existential crisis, as the ultimate defence mechanism. In good and stable times, the majority votes for stability, hence voters will choose centrists. If the many current EU crises were managed better, the extreme parties wouldn’t be as popular. They will continue being popular until the West finds a new equilibrium, which will take time. This is just the beginning.
Additionally, such swift rise of Hitler was possible only because UK/US fed him loans and technologies, as well as fed his ego on an unprecedented scale in order to attack and destroy Russia with his hands. The stupidity of Hitler was that he took the bait – the rest is history. This was not the first and not the last time Anglo-Americans created a monster and then had to fight him.
My prediction on this point is three-fold: 1. US and UK are now on the defensive and have no sufficient resource to ‘subvert’ entire Europe; 2. Ukraine was possible to subvert – EU is not. Europeans are very alert nowadays and won’t let that happen; 3. What’s more, Russia won’t let that happen.
The EU right-wingers today will not be fed loans or technologies. And they have no goals of global dominance either.
The present situation is a reverse of Hitler’s Germany situation: this is a defensive reaction. It is isolationist, the opposite of expansive or aggressive, in its nature.
Final prediction and trendcast for today:
The profound polarization of the Western society, accompanied by confusion and frequent flip-flopping is the new trend. This concerns various referendums and elections, as we have already seen with BREXIT and Austrian elections.
This trend will be very visible in the US during US presidential elections 2016.
Consequently: confusion and polarization are key words, the rise of the right being a protest movement to current EU and global conditions.

The snapshot of the NATO tweet below just about sums up the escalating Eurovision scandal.
‘Repeat after me: NATO loves Jamala and there was absolutely nothing political about her win’ (via
Most of my readers are probably far from being fans of Eurovision. I know I am not one, and I certainly wasn’t planning on mentioning it on FT. However, the latest scandal just keeps popping up wherever I look, so I thought I’d put in my two cents.
Eurovision is a very big deal in Europe. As some of you may know, it is the world’s largest and by far the grandest pop song contest that has been established years ago by the UK and a few other founding countries to promote ‘cooperation and understanding’ in Europe.
It’s sort of Olympics of pop, if you will, where people from various countries pop up (no pun intended) with national pride or go crazy with disappointment, depending on their singer’s result. It usually gets very emotional and doesn’t always reflect the actual quality of the song. But for those who like good music, sometimes, if you are really lucky, you may even catch a nice performance or two.
However, based on the stunts Eurovision organizers are pulling lately, I think they should rename it to ‘Eurohate.’
The organizers of the competition are public television stations in each founding country. For UK this would be BBC, plus other corresponding TV organizations in several other EU states (I believe these are France, Germany and Spain). The Eurovision competition has been on for so long that the singers from the USSR had participated in it. I think this about sums it up and gives an idea who is in charge and where it’s going.
A huge scandal is developing as a result of Eurovision 2016, which has just ended in Sweden. Firstly, organizers secretly changed the judging system.
Previously, it were the fans and spectators who called in their opinions of every performer. Based on the number of popular votes in each country the resulting country score for every participant was announced: maximum 12, minimum 0. The formula for how that was determined also raised a lot of questions in the past years. Then the judges were added, whose votes were counted as part of the score.
This year, after the final participant list became clear, Eurovision announced new cardinal changes to the system. The overwhelming favorite was a well-known Russian singer Sergey Lazarev. Many believe that the system was tweaked in such a way that he would not be able to win, and consequently, Russia would not be able to host Eurovision next year. But that was only part of it. The idea was to humiliate Russia, make it uncomfortable and painful, therefore, it was necessary that an anti-Russian song would win. Enter song ‘1944’ and ‘Ukrainian’ singer Jamala, who’s in reality a self-professed Crimean Tartar, and who’s originally from Kyrgyzstan.
Eurovision announced that the final result of the 2016 contest would be calculated based on two things: popular vote in each country and a secret judging panel of five in each country. The judging panel was not announced publicly and it met behind closed doors. This arrangement posed a lot of questions as to who were the judges, who named them, and who influenced their opinion. The unknown judges’ marks were pompously presented during the final TV vote as the marks of the country in question, which negated the system of public voting.
News-Front Agency, whose material I sometimes post on FT, has interviewed a member of the German judging panel, who said that they met and voted a day prior to the actual final performances. You decide what this means: that 5 judges times 40+ countries were all clairvoyant? Or, more plausibly, they were simply told how to vote?
Oh yes, before I forget, according to rules, the songs must not be political. After all, Eurovision is all about ‘cooperation and building bridges,’ right? The winner of this year’s Eurovision outright broke this rule with her openly political song.
Another rule: countries cannot vote for their own singers; they must vote for other countries. And so they did.
According to Eurovision’s own tally, the all-European popular vote across the board was given to the Russian performer Sergey Lazarev. However, for some ‘strange and unexplainable’ reason Lazarev across the board received extremely low scores from the national judging panels. For example, in Ukraine popular vote gave him 12 – maximum, while judges gave him 0.
The video above (watch from 3:55 onward) gives a list of strange disparity between the popular and judge vote in various countries when it came to judging the Russian singer’s performance. On the list: Armenia gave Russia: popular vote – 12, judges – 2; Estonia 12 vs 0, Ukraine 12 vs 0; Czechia: 10 vs 0; Georgia: 8 vs 0; Germany and Serbia both: 12 vs 1.
Belarus, Azerbaijan, Greece and Cyprus gave Russia the highest score, 12 points, on both sides.
Meanwhile, the judges routinely gave their highest score to a participant from… Australia. I haven’t listened myself, but I am sure the charming Korean girl from Australia deserved such high score and her performance was lovely… That said, I must have missed the Great Earth Shift in the past few weeks. Did Australian continent suddenly move from its usual place is southern hemisphere and somehow became co-joined with Europe? After all, Eurovision, as so many Europeans like to insist, is a EUROPEAN contest.
I recall the noise when Turkey and Azerbaijan became a part of Eurovision. ‘They don’t belong, don’t let them in.’ Well, Azerbaijan is located in Caucasus – ON European continent. And whether some like it or not, a small piece of Turkey, where Istanbul (Constantinople) is situated, is also located on European soil.
At one point there were even indignant voices that Russia shouldn’t belong in the contest because ‘it’s not a part of Europe.’ Hurray for the top-notch European education with a brilliant knowledge of geography!
Don’t get me wrong. I think the competition should be open to all countries on the globe. The more the merrier. The problem is not the contest itself; I think the idea behind it is marvelous. Building bridges is what normal people would want. It’s who is pulling the strings and what this contest is used for – that’s where the problem lies.
Sadly, Eurovision, much like the Nobel Prize, is used as a high-profile proxy in the war against Russia. Just like the aforementioned prize, Eurovision is also used to punish those the West considers undesirable, and to reward those they want to encourage. Usually this encouragement is used as part of the aggressive global divide and conquer.
But let’s get back to the judging results. So, Russian singer gets the popular vote and Australian singer gets the judges preference. Now, a wild guess who actually won? That’s right, Jamala, a Crimean Tartar singer from Ukraine. Australian singer was second and Russian Sergey Lazarev ended up third.
The song Jamala sang was called ‘1944.’ It talked about tragic experiences of Crimean Tartars during WWII, when the entire tribe was deported to Central Asia. Let me again point out that political songs are not allowed at this competition, yet this rule is routinely broken. I think next time Russian singers should sing about the 27 million Russians/Soviets killed in WWII, or about Mongol-Tartar invasion and the devastation Crimean Tartars inflicted on Russians throughout history; Brits should sing about bombings by German aviation of Coventry and London, while Germans should sing how US/UK bombed to the ground Dresden. Serbs should sing how NATO bombed their country; Czechs – how Germany and Poland invaded them and tore the country apart; Greeks, how Ottoman Turks invaded and killed them, and so on. If some can do it, why can’t others? It’s a democracy and same rules apply to all, don’t they?
I didn’t want to focus here on what really happened in 1944 and why. I may touch more upon the real truth of what happened in Crimea in 1941-1944, as well as Crimean Tartar actions during Mongol-Tartar invasion. This should be discussed in my future Crimean Agenda Earth Shift Report, which will come out later in the year (see Earth Shift Reports link at the bottom).
But because the real history was so severely re-written or silenced due to West’s relentless desire to malign everything Russian, let me say a few words for clarity’s sake. The gruesome truth is that when Crimea fell to Hitler and German Nazis in 1941, Crimean Tartar leadership greeted the invaders with great enthusiasm. Under occupation, many Crimean Tartars served as snitches, concentration camp guards and executors of Russians and Ukrainians. The situation in Crimea was quite similar to western Ukraine and Bandera ukro-nazis. Many, many Russians were tortured and executed by, or with the help of, Crimean Tartars.
When Red Army returned in 1944, local witnesses told stories of the brutal genocide Crimean Tartars inflicted together with Hitler’s troops. When volumes and volumes of evidence were collected, the decision was made to relocate all Crimean Tartars to Central Asia, mainly Uzbekistan, partly for their own safety, because Crimeans might have torn them apart if they remained. Let’s recall, it was still the middle of WWII and parts of Soviet territory were not liberated yet. Russians could hardly spare many resources for such a massive endeavour. They acted in the best possible way with the information and capacities they had at the time. Also, considering the brutal invasion Russia/USSR was still under, 27 million dead, cities and infrastructure destroyed, the overwhelming tragedy and devastation, just look at the humanity with which it was handled!
The relocation destination was not the cold Siberia or Kazakhstan, but the warm and sunny Uzbekistan, where there is plentiful food that grows all year round and the climate similar to Crimean. Plus Uzbeks are Muslims, with similar enough customs to the Crimean Tartars, so it was reasonable to assume they would get along.
Granted, just like in the case of Western Ukrainians, not every Crimean Tartar was a snitch or war criminal/mass murderer, but it was the middle of the most brutal war Russia has ever known. There was no possibility to investigate who was who and who did what. It was known that many were and many more supported it. Was it cruel to relocate people so suddenly? Yes, it absolutely was. Now let’s ask ourselves: how would you react if you found out that these people caused thousands of your people to be executed, if you knew many of them looted the homes and buildings retreating Russians were forced to abandon, thus preying on the common tragedy? How would you react if your family was dead because of them? How does the deportation look compared to that inhumanity and cruelty?
On top of it, there was another reason for deportation: as Red Army continued advancing to chase Hitler out of the country, it was legitimately feared that Crimean Tartars may betray again and strike from behind. With no possibility of keeping enough forces to guard Crimea, when all resources were necessary in the advancing western front, when it was impossible to investigate which of them were implicated in treason and which weren’t, the most humane and expedient way to solve the problem was to relocate the entire tribe far from the danger zone. Note also that this way families weren’t separated (which would occur if males, who potentially presented more risk as combatants, were placed in concentration camps till further investigation) and were able to continue living a normal life after relocation.
I’ll just add that during medieval Mongol-Tartar invasion, the nomadic Tartars invaded Russian steppes from Asia. Some of them took over Crimea and settled there, thus becoming ‘Crimean’ Tartars, as opposed to other Tartars living in Russia, such as Volga Tartars. Crimean Tartar Khanate, ruled by a war lord referred to as ‘khan,’ made a living by periodically invading Russian cities (they went as far as the rich Kiev and Moscow). They would loot, kill, burn down cities and kidnap as many Russians as they could, to sell them as highly prized slaves in the Middle East. There is much more to the story, and books could be filled with sordid details.
It certainly isn’t the kind of history that Crimean Tartars, nudged and supported by their Western handlers, are trying to present. They portray themselves as poor innocent victims, mistreated by big, mean Russia for no reason at all. They are not the first ones to manipulate history and reality to suit their ulterior motives – we’ve seen this before. Of course, such blatant manipulation is only possible because the West encourages it.
But every coin has two sides. Part of the problem is that Russians always tried to sweep the tragedies that OTHERS CAUSED TO THEM under the rug in order to keep a friendly cooperation going. To keep peace in the family, so to speak. This, as much as the West’s encouragement, emboldened falsifications.
Incidentally, Putin recently signed the Crimean Tartar rehabilitation law. Hundreds of thousands of them returned to Crimea, they are given social help, housing and opportunity to start business. Crimean Tartar language, along with Russian and Ukrainian, is an official language of the Crimean autonomy – three official languages in total. Today’s Crimean leadership is doing everything to reconcile the past, include Crimean Tartars in the life of the republic, and keep peace. Now, that’s a mature and responsible behavior!
Meanwhile, the true history related to Tartars is turbulent and very unpleasant, to say the least. As usual, karma normally catches up with all. You live by the sword – you die by the sword. Crimean Tartar violence caught on to them eventually. The WWII deportation story, while tragic for families, is a karmic consequence of earlier collective deeds.
I’ll tell you more: the sooner Crimean Tartars understand the universal karmic law of cause and effect, the sooner they at large make peace with it and take a different route as a tribe, the faster they will resolve their heavy karma. The sooner they understand that those who attempt to revive old animosities are the true enemy of their people, the easier they will regain peace and dignity they crave so much. The sooner they figure out that the so-called Crimean Tartar Mejlis and the convenient dupe Jamala are fakes, being used as expedient political tools to harm Russia and plunge Crimean Tartars again into conflict, the better for everyone.
There are indications that the majority of Crimean Tartars residing in Crimea are starting to get it. It’s an absolutely different story for those ‘Crimean Tartars’ who are outside of Crimea and who are on payroll of Western or Turkish interests.
I know Russians are trying very hard to help Crimean Tartars be accepted in Crimea and overcome their old karma through extending a hand of cooperation and involving them in the life of the republic. For example, deputy head of the Crimean republic is a Crimean Tartar.
But Russia is alone in this positive approach. Driven by hate, the West, Turkey, Ukraine, Mejlis and all sort of extremist Islamist organizations attempt to use Crimean Tartars as an instrument directed at destabilizing Russia.
It is clear that Jamala is a political project and tool in the new all-out anti-Russian war. The Mejlis ‘leader’ Mustafa Jamilev, who’s a Kiev Rada deputy and well-known agent of CIA and Turkey, was at Eurovision to cheer her on. Crimean Tartar Mejlis is the organization that exists in Ukraine and Turkey. It has been banned in Russia as terrorist organization after in December 2015 it, together with Ukraine nazis from the right sector, blew up electric transformers, leaving without electricity 2.5 million Crimeans, including hundreds of thousands Crimean Tartars.
To conclude, the Crimean Tartar card and their turbulent history are used to:
1. Distract, humiliate and malign Russia
2. Attempt to create more animosity between Ukraine and Russia, keeping the artificial separation alive
3. Attempt to create a fight between Russians and Tartars, presently co-existing peacefully in Crimea
4. Stoke animosity between Muslims and Christians within Russia
5. Prop up an artificial wall of distrust and animosity between Western Europe and Russia, not allowing them to come together in cooperation as one single Eurasian space.
Let’s add that today, May 18, is the anniversary of the 1944 Crimean Tartar deportation, and the picture is complete. Jamala’s Eurovision win timed to this anniversary, and so ardently supported by NATO, says it all.
But let’s also remember that the Europeans’ public vote was given to Russia.
A few closing notes and news:
There is a petition (could be more than one), started by an Armenian, which demands that Eurovision 2016 results be annulled and Jamala stripped of her win. This petition as of yesterday gathered over 100,000 signatures.
Winner Ukraine is supposed to host next year’s Eurovision. Hosting Eurovision 2017 in Ukraine, a country in a state of civil war and rapidly falling apart? Why not, after all they did have presidential elections during civil war.
Jamala has hardly won, but Ukraine already announced that only those Russian singers would be allowed to participate in Eurovision 2017, who are ‘against Russia’s annexation of Crimea and who support this Kiev regime.’ This is in direct violation of Eurovision rules.
It is universally known that Ukraine has absolutely no funds to host Eurovision next year – a very expensive undertaking. All this was predictable and goes to show how little the Eurovision organizers are actually concerned about the quality and success of their competition. Looks like they are much more concerned about humiliating Russia.
Incidentally, in my personal opinion, Russia should stop participating in Eurovision and spend that million euros annually, or whatever the current fee is, on something useful.
Sadly, the ugly info war and the dirty global hybrid war will continue intensifying as we progress deeper into the Great Earth Shift. Lies will continue being told.
But the good news is that more and more truth about history and global shady dealings will continue emerging at the same time.

The infamous, long-suffering USS #DonaldCook got buzzed again – this time in Baltic Sea! Donald Cook has been snooping around 70 nautical miles off the coast of Kaliningrad, not too far from a Russian Baltic Navy base. On April 13, 2016 two unarmed Russian jets said hello by making 20 passes at an extremely low altitude, almost touching the water. They flew repeatedly right over and around the ill-famed American destroyer.
One notable thing: not by accident, this happened practically on the second anniversary of the first incident. On April 12, 2014 USS Donald Cook got buzzed 12 times by a single Russian Su-24, which didn’t carry any arms, except a mysterious device dubbed Khibiny. The electronic jamming device disabled ‘USS Donald Duck’s’ advanced AEGIS systems, causing panic on board and resulting in 27 sailors resigning commission.
Read my detailed report about what happened two years ago: Mystery Revealed: What frightened the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black Sea?
4/13/16 Russian Su-24 jets buzz USS Donald Cook. The planes made 20 passes of the US Navy ship, according to US officials, passing within 1,000 yards at an altitude of just 100ft. The American ship had just left the Polish port of Gdynia and was in the Baltic Sea about 70 nautical miles off Kaliningrad.
This time there was no Khibiny involved. It was just a gentle reminder not to get too close to the Russian base. But the hysterics in NATO and Washington are deafening.
I have to point out why April 12 is significant. On April 12, 2016 we celebrated the 55th anniversary of the first man is Space. On April 12, 1961 Russian cosmonaut Yury Gagarin flew around earth’s orbit for 108 minutes, opening an era of human Space exploration. Buzzing ‘Donald Duck’ 12 times on April 12, 2014 in Black Sea near Crimea was a reminder of who was there first… and who was there for real. 😉
It appears this time the closest they could match that date was to say ‘hello’ on April 13 – one day after the 55th anniversary of Yury Gagarin’s virgin flight.
But the humor of the situation is lost on Washington and NATO. In response, they are calling for bigger military budgets for US and EU and for a bigger and better (you mean better than USS Donald Duck?!) US fleet in the EU.
New arms race, new cold war: the US-EU military-industrial complex is licking its lips and warmongers in Washington and Brussels can’t wait for their wet dream to come true. One might think US/NATO were just waiting for any excuse to expand their military budgets at taxpayers’ expense!

Lada Ray novels set in Russia:
What wouldn’t they do to sell to the populace an increase in Swedish military spending. What wouldn’t they do to drag Sweden into NATO, in the last push to justify the alliance’s existence and to continue encircling Russia with more bases!
Truly, the ‘West can’t live without enemies; this is a part of its self-perception.’ Well said by Swedish peace researcher Jan Oberg: below is his video interview that makes perfect sense, unlike the rhetoric of his government.
‘In a few years Sweden may be engaged in a war with a “qualified opponent” after two centuries of peace, a senior Swedish commander has told soldiers in an internal brochure.’
By ‘qualified opponent’ this, not very qualified, Swedish general means – who do you think! – of course, Russia!
Incidentally, Russia’s military spending constitutes only 8% of NATO’s.
Russia’s military spending is 1/10th of the USA’s.
Silly question: who is the aggressor in this scenario?
On another note, Poland has volunteered to host new and additional US bases and arms on its territory. When asked why, Polish talking heads and officials say this is not directed against Russia, that Russia presently isn’t being thought of as a threat by Poland. This, in fact, is more of a protection against Germany (a fellow NATO member); additionally, this is done for economic, not political, reasons. Those naive enough to believe this bull’s crap in chef’s salad – raise your hands! Hmm… Don’t see any. Anyone? Anyone?!!

Montenegro (Chernogoria) Crisis Explained! Rebellion Against NATO and PM Milo Đukanovic!
Presently independent, Montenegro is a former part of Yugoslavia and Serbia. Being located in the middle of NATO’s domain – the Mediterranean – next to other NATO members, having no army of its own and being a small country with not much of an economy, Montenegro has no strategic value for NATO whatsoever.
Because of that Montenegro had been left alone all these years. Suddenly, last year PM Đukanović announced that the country would be joining NATO. Why, you may ask, if there is no value to Montenegro being a NATO member?
There is one overriding reason: Montenegro’s economic and cultural ties to Russia! Due to the closeness of culture and mentality, lots of Russians go to Montenegro for Mediterranean vacations, many Russians have vacation properties there, plus, Russian business is a very significant part of Montenegro’s GDP. In fact, local economy only survives based on Russian business and tourism – take that away and people may starve.
And surprise! The announcement of Montenegro’s sudden urge to join NATO occurred right after Russia went into Syria and Russian jets managed to achieve in two weeks what US and allies couldn’t achieve in a year.
It became clear that the plan to drag Montenegro into NATO was an attempt to get back at Russia for Syria (and let’s not forget the ongoing quest to get back at Russia for Crimea and Donbass). If NATO bases and such move into Montenegro, Russian business and tourism would have to leave. As a matter of fact, it’s already leaving.
What was clear to me and many analysts, as well as the Russian government, wasn’t lost on the Montenegrin population either.
There are close similarities between Moldavia and Montenegro. In Moldavia Explodes! Anti-EU, Anti-Government Revolt, Parliament Stormed I wrote how Moldavian citizens rebelled against the government corruption, stolen $1 billion and EU association agreement.
Mass protests began in Montenegro around the same time as in Moldavia – October 2015 – and just like in Moldavia, they never stopped since. Both are small countries. While Moldova’s population is about 3.5 million, Montenegro’s is only about 600,000. People in both feel that their governments are crooked and that they are being dragged into certain Western organizations without being asked. Both are angry their governments are sold out to the US/West.
Montenegrin citizens demand resignation of PM and government, and national referendum on NATO. For some ‘strange’ reason both US and EU – these beacons of Western democracy – don’t believe the citizens of Moldavia and Montenegro deserve to exercise their democratic rights.
Protests in Montenegro have continued without any breaks since last October, despite cold winter. Thousands, and even tens of thousands, have been protesting daily. The government continues ignoring its citizens’ demands.
Montenegrin protests, and generally, the situation in the Balkans, is a part of The Big Battle for Eurasia! All this will be discussed in the upcoming ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. Stay tuned!

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, Member of the European Parliament:
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:
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.
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.

As we’ve discussed in Explosive Consequences of Turkey Downing Russian Su-24 in Syria, there is hell for Turkey to pay for the downing of the Russian jet. NATO, EU and even US have been trying very hard to distance themselves from Turkey, insisting it’s all between Russia and the ‘unpredictable’ Erdogan.
As predicted in the same article, neither NATO nor EU would move a muscle to protect Turkey. In fact, various Western politicians and generals are floating an opinion that Turkey should be expelled from NATO.
I can tell you this won’t happen. It’s certainly not realistic for as long as NATO exists in its current state. US and NATO have too many bases in Turkey and they won’t just abandon this primest of the prime spot, allowing them to meddle with Russia. Considering that soon there will be fewer and fewer places where US and NATO will be welcome, they will try with all their might to hang on to what they can.
Therefore, I do not see the expulsion of Turkey from NATO at this time – sooner NATO will stop to exist. For now, all that is being said are very careful warnings for Erdogan, sort of like ‘down, boy!’
In fact, Erdogan’s actions are noted to become more and more erratic and unpredictable. He has just destroyed in one fell swoop a decade of building up a very lucrative cooperation with Russia. There is danger he may be trying to generate a conflict with Russia in order to invoke an international clause regulating the Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits, allowing Turkey to close them down, thus shutting down Russia in Black Sea. Worst case scenario is looming and Russia needs to be prepared for it.
Although Turkey has very little leeway in closing down the straits, it may be attempting an extraordinary provocation to achieve this goal. It’s hard to imagine Turkey acting alone in that.
In one of my earlier articles about Turkey and its role in the region, I predicted that Turkey, by virtue of occupying a very strategic position that essentially bridges Europe and Middle East, serving as a gate into Asia and Black Sea, is allowed by world powers to be strong enough to perform the gatekeeper role, but will never be allowed to get too strong. It will be immediately put in its place, should that happen. This is what we are seeing happen. Turkey is also a very long-standing bone of contention between Russia and the West. Read more in Is Erdogan Trying to Recreate Ottoman Empire?
The issue of the Black Sea straits is very important. As a result of World War I they were supposed to go to Russia, together with what is now Istanbul (Constantinople). This never happened. Do you know why? I’ll explain all about it in the upcoming ESR7: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. This important, albeit volitile, issue may be raised again by Russia.
To add to my NATO and Russia predictions in Explosive Consequences of Turkey Downing Russian Su-24 Jet, I can also tell you that Turkey’s actions have weakened NATO and strengthened Russian position in the region.
As I’ve also pointed out in the same article written within a couple of hours after the news of Su-24 downing, the rift between NATO countries will continue intensifying. It’s already evident in France’s Hollande trying to solidify a coalition with Russia. There is a power struggle within NATO between US, who says that there will only be one coalition – theirs, and France, who have already signed a cooperation agreement with Russia. Certainly, France is weak compared to the power of the US. However, due to the force majeure circumstances of the Paris bombings, France’s claim takes precedence under international law. US is being pushed aside in Syria, as France has a legitimate reason to retaliate for Paris attacks.
However, I am skeptical as to how far this cooperation between France and Russia will be allowed to go. Undoubtedly, Hollande will try, but he is also kept on an invisible short leash, as various attacks in France show.
Also, technically, since France is a part of NATO, Russia can’t share that much intel, for fear that it will be again leaked to the US, Turkey and ISIL.
Putin has practically head-on accused USA of aiding Turkey in the downing of the Russian jet. Putin said that USA had signed an agreement with Russia on behalf of all NATO countries, according to which Russia has advised USA/NATO where Russian jets would be at any given moment. This made Turkey, a NATO member, fully aware of all the movements of the Russian jets.
By now it’s clear to the entire world that Turkey was well prepared for this hit. The Russian bomber, which isn’t designed to deflect attacks of fighter jets, was simply ambushed. Turkish fighter was waiting for the Russians, then it maneuvered in such a way as to strike from behind. As Putin so aptly put it, ‘it was a knife strike in Russia’s back.’
It appears that neither NATO nor USA ever thought the whole truth about the attack would come out so quickly. Certainly, a massive miscalculation on their part took place here. As I said in the above-referenced article, instead of being intimidated and leaving Syria, Russia is set for a much deeper and stronger participation in Syria and the Middle East in general.
Turkey is NATO/USA’s tool and weapon in the Middle East. But, in addition Turkey has its own interests and plans. Qatar and Saudi Arabia also have own interests and plans, in addition to being West’s tools in the region.
I received this question from several people: is Erdogan mad; has power gone to his head? Or is he absolutely rational, acting according to his well-thought-out plan? Lots of passionate debates are now taking place among experts. Most people are confused as to how to interpret his seemingly irrational actions.
I’ll give you the entire spread – Turkey (Erdogan)/ Black Sea/ Crimea/ Odessa/ Russia/ NATO/ Balkans/ Pridnestrovie/ Moldova/ Caucasus, and explain the deep connections between all that in my upcoming Earth Shift Report 7 – THE BATTLE FOR EURASIA: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Military: the preliminary military response to Turkey’s actions has already taken place. Russia established a no-fly zone over the Turkey-Syria border. No movement between Turkish territory and Syria is possible any more, therefore no supply of weapons, rotation of terrorists or ISIL oil truck movement takes place between Syria and Turkey.
Read all about Syria, Russia and Israel; how ISIL/Al Nusra/Muslim Brotherhood are financed, including oil revenues, artifact sales and Turkey/Qatar/Saudi/US role in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER.
It is known that those terrorists that shot at Russian pilots from the ground, killing one, and those who shot down Russian rescue helicopter and killed a marine, were not Turkmen rebels as was initially announced by Turkey, but ‘grey wolves.’ This is an ultra-nationalist Turkish organization with direct links to Erdogan and the ruling party. The man who actually pulled the trigger was a Turkish national and son of a mayor of a Turkish city.
The body of the Russian colonel who piloted the ill-fated Su-24, had surfaced in Ankara, Turkey, where Turkish terrorists brought it to demonstrate their ‘victory’ over the defenceless pilot. Following Russia’s damand, Turkey gave the body back to Russia.
Within one day after the jet’s downing, Russia flew the advanced S-400 systems to its military base in Syria. This is an extraordinary step Russia had refrained from taking before due to pleas from states such as Jordan, Lebanon and Israel, fearing the destabilization of the region. S-400 covers the territory of 400 kilometers in radius and therefore can shoot down Turkish jets on takeoff deep inside Turkish territory. There is no weapon in existence, including radio-electronic interference, that can intercept or stop missiles fired by this advanced Russian system.
S-400 is more advanced than S-300 system that Russia has now begun delivering to Iran. Russia has also developed S-500, the most advanced in the series. Watch ESR4: ALIEN TECHNOLOGY AND NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS for many other Russian cutting-edge designs.
Black Sea Fleet Flagship, Cruiser Moskva, has moved to Syria and is covering Russian airstrikes and bases from the sea.
Russia also made a decision to build two complete military-naval bases in Syria, instead of the initially proposed single base in Tartus.
Essentially, no one can now fly in Syria without the permission of the Russian forces.
This is one of the reasons France is trying to get into some sort of coalition with Russia – there is no other way for them to fly in Syria in order to retaliate on Paris attacks, and Hollande must at least pretend to do so in order to look good for his constituents at home. Russia always looks for cooperation whenever possible. But in truth, as I said in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER and other referenced pieces, Russians really don’t need others: they just need everyone getting out of the way, so they can do their job.
As predicted, Russia was just given by the Turkish actions a very legitimate opportunity to intensify presence in the Middle East and to become the leading player in the region.
Economic sanctions: Putin announced the preliminary economic sanctions package against Turkey. Visa-free regime is suspended as of 1/1/2016. Russia stops selling tours to Turkey and the last of Russian tourists are returning home. This is a big blow. Turkey is visited annually by 3-5 million Russians and they leave there $10 bln annually. Russians are by far the biggest tourism market for Turks, and tourism constitutes 25% of Turkish economy.
Turkish business in Russia is banned and all Turkish business licenses revoked. Turkish nationals are denied visas and expelled. This is also a huge blow, hitting not only Turkish companies but wider into the Muslim-oriented network of mafias. Turkish business has been huge since Yeltsin’s times. I will talk about its incredibly deep penetration and powerful lobby in Russia in the upcoming ESR7.
Russian companies are prohibited from hiring Turkish workers. Charter flights to Turkey are banned starting 1/1/2016, while regular flights are still on, pending further notice. There is a partial ban on Turkish produce and goods. The list will be finalised soon. This is just the start. Turkey is only in the beginning of the process of paying the price – much more to come.
Russian gas supplies to Turkey and Turkish/Blue Stream project are a different and complicated story, which we’ll also discuss in ESR7.
Meanwhile, Turkish oligarchs are starting to incur losses due to Russian sanctions.
By now it has become apparent (as I hinted in Explosive Consequences of Turkey Downing Russian Su-24 Jet) that the terrorist act of blowing up Ukrainian power lines to Crimea was organized by Turkey in close cooperation with Poroshenko and Kiev government, using Crimean Tartar extremist organization Medjlis and ukro-nazis. The connection between these parties is much deeper than many imagine (read Urgent! Ukraine Blows Up Power Lines, Leaving Crimea and 2.5 Million People Without Electricity). I have some new revealing intel.
Last but not least, there is a fight breaking out between Erdogan and the Turkish military. A military coup may be possible.
All the above and its profound implications will de discussed in detail in Earth Shift Report 7: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
China weighs in
China has sent its aircraft carrier to Syria in support of Russian forces. The story of this Soviet-made Chinese aircraft carrier – the country’s only – is remarkable and provocative in its own right. The very presence of this particular vessel sends a number of serious messages to Russia, NATO, US and even Ukraine. Very subtly, in its usual way, China is hinting on something. What is it? Stay tuned for ESR7, where all will be revealed.
Putin in Paris
Along with many other heads of state, Vladimir Putin is in Paris for the UN Climate Conference. While the pretext is global warming (and we won’t discuss it here), the conference is being used by heads of major states to discuss what’s really on everyone’s mind: Syria, Turkey, ISIL, Russian jet and Crimea.
Multiple times and through all imaginable channels in the past two days, Turkey’s Erdogan had attempted to secure a telephone conversation with Putin, but was rebuffed. In Paris, Erdogan again attempted to meet with Putin on the sidelines, but was again refused.
Putin met with Chinese President, which happens very frequently lately. Last meeting was two weeks ago.
Putin also met with Barack Obama and spoke with him for 30 minutes. Note that this meeting takes place after Putin has practically accused US of aiding terrorists along with Turkey. This is their second contact in the past two weeks, after over a year of mutual silence. Obama finally uttered ‘regret’ about the downing of the Russian jet. Does this signal a further distancing of USA/NATO from Turkey, or is it just for show?

COMING NEXT WEEK!
Please stay tuned!
This new report should be read in conjunction with
Putin’s video announcement: Turkey, who is aiding terrorists, has stabbed us in the back Rus/Eng. Link
MAP: Russian Su-24 crash scheme by Russian defense ministry:
Russian Defense Ministry demonstrates map of the Su-24M flight which ended in downing by Turkish F-16 jet. Russian MoD insists the jet didn’t violate Turkish airspace, while Ankara says the plane crossed into its territory for 17 seconds, leaked document indicates.
US-backed states have right to self defence, but not others- State Dept.
During the moment of Turkey shooting down the Russian Su-24, it flew at the 6km altitude, one kilometer away from Turkish border on the Syrian side. The plane was shot down by AMERICAN missiles from American-made F-16 employed by TURKISH army, in retaliation for Russia successfully bombing Syrian terrorists, whom they call ‘Turkmen,’ and who are financed, trained and openly supported by Turkey.
In the area in which the plane was shot down there is no peaceful population. It is the territory fully controlled by various armed thugs, fed by Turkey to create havoc on Syrian territory.
It has been known that Turkey actively recruits terrorists in the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, as well as in the Russian Chechnya and Dagestan, through a wide network of mosques and extremist Islamist schools they openly organize and finance. The exception are Chechnya and Dagestan on the Russian side, where recruitment is done more subtly.
As was seen on many videos, the plane crashed very quickly. Both pilots ejected. It was also visible on videos how Turkey-supported terrorists were shelling the pilots as they tried to land.
The info about the pilots is conflicting. There was a speculation that they may have been taken hostage. However, the latest sad news I’ve heard is that either one or both pilots are unfortunately dead. One of them may still be alive, being a hostage in the hands of the militants.
Let me begin by expressing my deepest condolences to Russia on the downing of the jet, and full support to the families of pilots.
You know how balanced and restrained I usually am in my message. You know that I always try to give the benefit of the doubt to everyone, including Turkey/Erdogan and US/Obama. But this is literally the line they should have never, ever crossed. This bodes big changes with very serious multi-level and multi-directional consequences for many parties worldwide. These changes will be complex and I will discuss them below.
First, let me say that Erdogan and Turkey will have hell to pay. This was a big mistake on Erdogan’s part. Russia put up with him despite his schizophrenic idiocy, for fear of destabilizing the region even further.
As we have discussed on many prior occasions, Russia as the Earth’s Great Balancer, always strives to maintain balance and status quo, until she is pushed too far.
USA/UK and the West play the opposite role – they (especially the Anglo-American countries) play the role of the global agitator and imbalancer. This is what they do to the rest of the world, while keeping their own countries in wonderful balance.
One of my readers asked me recently a question about millions of the Middle Eastern refugees streaming into Europe, among whom there are sleeper terrorists. What to expect, where is all this going, will Europe and this reader’s native Sweden become Muslim?
I’ve replied that the sooner EU understands that the only solution to this crisis, as well as all the crises that are happening in Europe now, is in getting closer to Russia and distancing itself from the US, the sooner the refugee crisis will stop. US had feared that EU, and especially Germany, were getting too close to Russia and this is why Ukraine coup was engineered, MH17 was blown up in eastern Ukraine and anti-Russian sanctions were organized. Divide and conquer.
Keeping Europe artificially away from Russia, keeping it in fear and distrust – that’s the ultimate goal. This way they can continue to control Europe and prevent Russia and China from developing; this is how the world is kept in the perma-instability mode.
Incidentally, here is the blow away part of the intel I was saving for the upcoming piece about the Russian Airbus A321 catastrophe in Sinai, Egypt. But it seems more appropriate here. It is known that it was Turkey that organized the refugee crisis for the EU. It is also known that the USA was the mastermind of the refugee crisis. The whole thing was very well coordinated, down to maps, money, logistics and text messages which way to go and where to meet. I have proof and I will share it in a different piece.
So, to the question how to solve the refugee crisis: look at who benefits and who organised it. Then side with the only country that actually works to solve this crisis. This country would be Russia, for those who haven’t heard.
Instead, the likes of Merkel are making deals with the devil. She recently met with Erdogan and offered him a bribe to stop the flow of refugees: 3 bln euro to keep refugees in Turkey, plus a fast track into the EU (between us – this will never happen).
Below I will talk about USA and its unseemly role in the downing of the Russian Su-24 jet in Syria. You know I usually don’t talk about Obama, but this is one exception. Obama’s despicable role in this matter deserves a special mention.
I previously wrote about Erdogan trying to sit on multiple chairs at once. See ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER, where I explain Turkey/Erdogan’s game in detail. But this never works.
Putin at G20 in Turkey that just ended has presented a list of 40 countries, including G20 members, who are supporting terrorism. Certainly Turkey is very high on that list, but the diplomatic Putin has stopped short of accusing country’s leadership directly.
At the same time, Turkey is a very significant trade partner for Russia. Russia exports a lot of natural gas to Turkey, a lot of agricultural produce is imported by Russia from Turkey. Several million tourists from Russia go to Turkey for warm sea vacations annually. Russia and Turkey have visa free regime. Turkey was also projected to become a major gas distribution hub for southern Europe, if and when Turkish Stream is to be built.
Incidentally, Turkish Stream up till now was still a reality, contrary to what some have been saying. It is a real project and many parties, including Turkey, Russia, Italy, Greece, all of the Balkans, Hungary and Austia are eagerly awaiting it.
It stands to reason that the following parties would do anything to prevent Turkish Stream from happening, and these are: USA, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. USA and the other two have been working tirelessly to sabotage this project. The downing of the Russian jet is creating conditions for them to achieve their goal, if only temporarily: Turkish Stream may be conserved – at this time I don’t see it being abandoned altogether yet. The delay in building it is definitely in the cards.
Now, I want to emphasize that sabotaging Turkish Stream is one of the major goals for the USA, Qatar and Saudis in Turkey. But there are lots of others.
Another goal is not letting Turkey get closer to Russia and China, while distancing itself from its NATO and Anglo-American allies.
In 2014 Putin made huge strides and it seemed this was happening, as Turkish Stream deal was signed, visa free regime began, and various other trade agreements were executed. Erdogan began talking about joining Eurasian Union.
However, after a series of attempts on his life – which to me were rather a warning for him to toe the line than real attacks, terrorist acts, bloody protests and problems with elections, Erdogan changed his song. He began talking again about joining EU despite Turkey being snubbed for several decades. He again began being active in NATO and started taking a more and more actively militant stance against Syria and Assad.
It is evident that there has been tremendous pressure on Erdogan and Turkey to get back into the fold of NATO and Transatlantists.
At the very same time, Turkey has been playing double game with Russia. Saying friendly things to Putin’s face, Erdogan has been clandestinely recruiting Islamist militants behind Russia’s back and attempting to destabilize the post-Soviet space. The big goal and wet dream number 1 for Turkey has been the resurrection of its Ottoman Empire.
Of course Russia knew all about it – it’s pretty much common knowledge. But due to various geopolitical risks, Russians attempted to balance the situation, keeping Turkey reasonably in check.
The thing is that there really is no alternative to Erdogan that would keep the country in a semblance of a balance. Russia, with significant interests and visa-free regime, can’t afford the destabilization of Turkey.
It has to be mentioned that Kurds play a very significant and convoluted role in Turkey. On one hand, they have legitimate grievances and it is their right to want independence and being re-united with other Kurds from three other Middle Eastern countries. To remind, Kurds were artificially divided between four countries, with borders drawn by the British Empire during colonial era. Same happened to Armenians, who also became divided between several countries by the British Empire. Read all about it in SYRIA GAME CHANGER.
On another hand, it is known that in many situations Kurds are financed and controlled by the US. Exploiting their natural grievances, desire for equal rights and re-unification, USA systematically uses Kurds as a very clandestine and non-obvious weapon for US geopolitical gains in the Middle East. Therefore, Kurdish protests and riots in Turkey, manipulated since 2014 to get Erdogan back into the US/NATO fold, were helped from across the ocean.
Despite Erdogan’s idiotic and inconsistent behavior, Russia still supported him, since there was nothing else on the horizon. Russia could have easily helped Erdogan NOT win the latest elections, if they so desired. Erdogan won with great difficulty.
In view of the Russian jet’s downing and the killing of the two Russia pilots, I can predict that Erdogan will be in a more precarious situation than ever.
Read much more on Erdogan and Tukrey in the new EARTH SHIFT REPORT 7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.
Big changes in Russia’s attitude towards Turkey are coming.
Russian Duma has been discussing since the Egypt crash certain security measures regarding Turkey. It has been proposed to stop air traffic to Turkey, in addition to Egypt. It was also proposed to revoke visa-free regime. This proposal didn’t pass the Duma, as most rejected such restrictions at the time. It’s almost inevitable that it will be passed now.
Egypt tourism indistry is already dead after Russians withdrew all tourism. Russian tourists constituted 70%, in some case up to 90%, of Egypt’s tourism revenues. Turkey’s tourism industry is about to suffer the same fate. For both of these countries tourism is extremeley important.
Meanwhile, Russian resorts in Sochi and Crimea are getting a boost. In this regard, note the ‘co-incidence’ of Ukraine’s terrorist act, as discussed in: Urgent! Ukraine Blows Up Power Lines, Leaving Crimea and 2.5 Million People Without Electricity. This terrorist act left the peninsula without power, sabotaging the growing Crimean tourism. Russia is also developing winter tourism in Siberia and the Far East.
I foresee other severe repercussions for Turkey, of economic, financial and political nature. If and when Russia withdraws any political support from Erdogan, he will likely not survive for too long in his post. By his erratic and duplicitous actions Erdogan managed NOT to generate any real allies and suporters. Remember Qaddafi? This kind of flip-flopping doesn’t do any good.
As I said, Russia tried at all cost to keep Turkey stable, overlooking some of Erdogan’s actions. Destabilization of Turkey is beneficial only to the US – this is why by default Russia had to do the opposite.
Now the situation may change. But I will predict preliminarily that Putin will still act very carefully, so not to destabilize the region further. The political outlook for Turkey will change gradually; when Putin is ready to act – no one will see it coming.
This is still the situation when Russia will have to choose between bad and very bad so not to destabilize the region even more.
Another thing that has to be mentioned is this: Turkey and its government simply cannot be trusted under any circumstances. This has always been the way of this region of the world for a long, long time. They will flip-flop and stab anyone in the back on moment’s notice, depending on who pays them more or who threatens them more effectively.
There is a saying in those parts: if someone extends a hand to you, bite off his arm. I know it sounds vicious and awful, but in light of the present events, I thought it was necessary to mention this.
It’s sad news for those countries that were hoping to get Russian gas first via South Stream and then via Turkish Stream. I still think the pipeline may happen one day, but it may not be through Turkey, after all.
The other variants include: it may still go through Bulgaria, but only after Bulgarian government stops being the complete US slave and the people of Bulgaria take their power back.
Or it may happen through Ukraine, but only after Ukraine is restored as a normal country. Most likely it won’t be called Ukraine for long. Also, in the near term, most likely it will either split into several pieces, or become a very, very loose confederation of practically independent, divergent regions.
Now, let’s talk about USA’s unseemly role in this whole situation.
I wrote in SYRIA GAME CHANGER that USA or NATO airforce under no circumstances would collide in any way with Russian airforce, for fear of world war. But we know that US is very, very peeved at Russia for Russia’s independent policy and for trying to maintain stability, when US works so incredibly hard at destabilizing the world.
What can US do to hurt Rusia? US can start a hybird war against Russia. It can employ all kinds of financial and economic attacks and sanctions, as it has been doing. It can also ignite color revolutions all over post-Soviet space. Finally, it can destroy Ukraine.
But Syria presents a great opportunity for USA to sick on Russia its vassals: the clueless Turkey is very convenient; all kinds of ‘very moderate’ terrorists US is financing – such as ISIL; Qatar and Saudis.
USA is the biggest supporter and CREATOR of terrorism in the world. USA is THE terrorist super-power of the world.
And now let’s see what Obama has said immediately after the shooting down by Turkey of the Russian Su-24 jet: ‘Turkey has the right to defend itself.’ Meanwhile the US command in Iraq says they can confirm that for 5 minutes Turkish army was warning the Russian jet to withdraw from the area, and only then they fired.
Let me get it straight: Turkish army was warning Russian jet to withdraw from the area across the border, in SYRIA, where Turkey has no right to be present or give commands, and where Russian pilots are present at the direct request and invitation of the Syrian government.
It is clear that this is an openly cynical and blatant collusion between USA and Turkey. I would not be surprised if it turns out that the ones pushing the trigger that killed Russian pilots and downed Su-24 were actually Americans, under the guise of the Turkish army. Let’s recall that USA and NATO have a lot of military bases in Turkey and this territory has always been their prised stronghold against Russia.
A word about Obama.
I said previously that I didn’t normally write about Obama is he was too predictable and un-interesting to me. This is one little exception.
Obama, this typical peace-loving ‘nobel peace prize winner,’ is one of the biggest war-mongers out there.
Obama is a puppet and a simpleton, who is a very effective mouth piece by virtue of being not very smart, but highly trainable. He’s a good actor though. He once fooled a lot of incredibly naive people by his ‘we are change’ slogan.
Having very little, if any, power from the start, after six years in office he looks like just an empty, soul-less shell. This happens to all American presidents whose daily job is to swindle the world and to lie to their own people. They are the ones who make pacts with the devil as a normal daily occurrence.
And now, a little preliminary prediction for the USA’s presidential elections 2016.
I am saving the full prediction for the US elections for 2016, when I’ll do a complete prediction about USA as part on a new Earth Shift Report. But I will give you a sneak peek, which is tied to the Russian jet downing in Syria.
Here is my prediction about US elections:
AS A RESULT OF ALL THE FAILURES AND EMBARRASSMENTS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, DEMOCRATS WILL LOSE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.
Here are more predictions:
AS A RESULT OF THE ATTACK ON THE RUSSIAN JET, RUSSIA WILL SIGNIFICANTLY INTENSIFY HER PRESENCE IN SYRIA AND SUPPORT OF ASSAD.
RUSSIA WILL ALSO INTENSIFY ANTI-TERRORIST OPERATIONS IN CENTRAL ASIA AND CAUCASUS, AND STEP UP PROTECTION OF BORDERS OF THE POST-SOVIET SPACE, SQUEEZING USA, TURKEY AND RADICAL ISLAMIST INFLUENCES OUT OF THOSE AREAS GRADUALLY.
RUSSIA WILL ALSO INTENSIFY SUPPORT FOR THOSE ORGANIZATIONS, COUNTRIES AND FORCES THAT FIGHT ISIL, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND OTHER ISLAMIST ORGANIZATIONS.
RUSSIA WILL INTENSIFY WORK DIRECTED AT SQUEEZING USA OUT OF VARIOUS COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD. US HASN’T WON ANY SUPPORTERS IN RUSSIA WITH ITS HIDEOUS ATTITUDE, AND EVEN THOSE WHO WERE STILL RELATIVELY NEUTRAL, WOULD CHANGE THEIR STANCE.
NATO WILL HIT HARD TIMES AND THE RIFT IN NATO WILL CONTINUE GROWING, ALTHOUGH USA WILL DO EVERYTHING TO KEEP NATO AFLOAT, INCLUDING INTIMIDATION. BUT USA’S ACTIONS WILL ONLY HAVE TEMPORARY EFFECT. IT’S EARLY TO TALK ABOUT THE END OF NATO, BUT IT’S THE START OF THE END.
THE SO-CALLED NATO PRINCIPLES OF MUTUAL DEFENCE ARE DEAD. NO EU COUNTRY WILL SEND THEIR TROOPS TO DEFEND TURKEY AS REQUIRED BY THE NATO CHARTER, IF RUSSIA DECIDES TO TAKE RETALIATORY MILITARY ACTION AGAINST TURKEY.

PERFECT STORM (German version) Eine perfekte Gelegenheit? Wird die NATO im Gefolge der Pariser Anschläge den Bündnisfall erklären?
For our German-speaking readers, here is a German version of Lada Ray’s recent article: Perfect Storm? Will NATO mobilize in Wake of Paris Attacks? (Go to this link for Paris maps, video, sites/timeline of the attacks).
Many thanks to our long-time supporter Ralph Netzker for the translation!
Eine perfekte Gelegenheit? Wird die NATO im Gefolge der Pariser Anschläge den Bündnisfall erklären?
14. November 2015 – von Lada Ray
Zuerst einmal: Mein herzlichstes Beileid an die Familien. Mögen die Opfer in Frieden ruhen.
Unglücklicherweise sind die Pariser Ereignisse eine direkte und vorhersagbare Konsequenz der Aktionen und Einmischungen der NATO, der USA und des Westens im Irak, in Afghanistan, Libyen, Syrien und überall sonst im Mittleren Osten. ISIL (alias Daesh oder IS) besteht zu weiten Teilen aus ehemaligen Offizieren von Saddam Hussein, welche Sunniten sind und von den USA entlassen wurden, nachdem diese den Irak erobert hatten. Der Rest setzt sich aus der bewaffneten Opposition zusammen, die übrig blieb, nachdem Libyen von der NATO (einschließlich Frankreich) zerstört worden war, außerdem Teilen von Al-Qaida und anderen islamistischen Rebellen, die von den USA, den Saudis und Katar finanziert werden.
Außerdem hatte ich bis jetzt noch keine Gelegenheit, den Familien der 224 Opfer des russischen Kogalymavia Airbus 320 aus dem Sinai, Ägypten mein Beileid auszusprechen. Ich habe ernst zu nehmende Informationen darüber, wer von diesem Anschlag profitierte. Ein Artikel wird erscheinen, wenn ich einen Moment erübrigen kann.
Die Anschläge in Paris und die russisch-ägyptische Flugzeugkatastrophe stehen in direkter Beziehung zu Assads und Russlands erfolgreicher anti-IS Operation.
Frankreich hat den Ausnahmezustand erklärt, und den Flughafen Orly und die Grenzen geschlossen. Dies könnte eine Kehrtwende in der EU-Politik der offenen Grenzen und der Politik gegenüber den Flüchtlingen signalisieren, welche gerade Europa fluten.
Die Anschläge in Paris, die bereits dem IS und den Flüchtlingen angelastet wurden, könnten eine robuste Antwort der französischen Regierung auslösen. Die Schließung der Grenzen anderer EU-Staaten ist ebenfalls möglich.
Besonders besorgniserregend wäre es, wenn die Anschläge als ein Angriff auf ein NATO- Mitglied eingestuft würden, was das Signal für eine Mobilisierung der NATO werden könnte. Wir alle wissen, wie viel Kritik die NATO in den letzten Jahren auf sich gezogen hat, wobei manche nach der Auflösung einer Organisation rufen, die nicht mehr gebraucht wird. Dies ist eine perfekte Gelegenheit für die NATO. Eine solche Situation könnte ihre Nützlichkeit untermauern und eine Rechtfertigung für ihr Fortbestehen liefern.
In Anbetracht all dessen könnten die Anschläge in Paris eine Operation unter falscher Flagge gewesen sein, dazu bestimmt, die Erklärung des NATO-Bündnisfalles zu provozieren.
Solche Vorfälle sollen häufig mehrere Fliegen mit einer Klappe schlagen. Es könnte sich auch um eine Warnung an Hollande gehandelt haben, sich der NATO-Linie unterzuordnen. Zur Zeit der Anschläge sah Hollande im Stadium ein Fußballspiel in unmittelbarer Nähe zu den Explosionen. Mir fällt auf, dass es ein Spiel zwischen Frankreich und Deutschland war. Das bedeutet praktisch, dass die Warnung bei der Stange zu bleiben, auch für Deutschland gilt.
Eine ähnliche Warnung hatte zuvor stattgefunden, als ein Germanwings-Flugzeug in Frankreich abstürzte. Dies geschah unmittelbar nachdem Hollande und Merkel es gewagt hatten, sich der Vorgehensweise der USA in der Ukraine-Krise entgegenzustellen, indem sie mit Russland zusammenarbeiteten um zu versuchen, den Krieg im Donbass zu stoppen. Es ist ebenfalls zu erwähnen, dass das über dem Sinai gesprengte russische Flugzeug von dem französischen Hersteller Airbus stammte.
Dies bedeutet praktisch: Nach Russlands erfolgreichem Bombeneinsatz in Syrien war bewiesen, wie wirkungslos (oder korrupt) die Bombardierungen des Westens und der USA waren. Dank der russischen Luftunterstützung marschiert die syrische Armee nunmehr gleichzeitig in vier Richtungen und hat die Kontrolle über die Hälfte des Territoriums wieder- gewonnen, das seither vom IS gehalten wurde. Solch ein wundersamer Umschwung war vor nur wenigen Wochen, bevor die Russen nach Syrien gingen, absolut unvorstellbar.
Wenn dies so weiter geht, ist Syrien in ein paar Monaten IS-frei. Ich schrieb im Earth Shift Report 5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER, dass russische Kampfflugzeuge die US- und NATO- Maschinen aus dem syrischen Luftraum verdrängen würden, da diese es nicht riskieren wollen, direkt mit den Russen zusammen zu stoßen – und es geschah genau wie vorhergesagt.
Alles was die Russen brauchen, ist, dass die USA und der Westen aus dem Weg gehen, um sie ihren Job machen zu lassen. Dies begann anscheinend damit, dass Obama und Kerry ihre Rhetorik änderten, Verhandlungen zuließen und Informationen austauschten. Ich fürchte allerdings, dass man das eine Lavrov ins Gesicht sagt, und etwas völlig anderes hinter verschlossenen Türen. Ich habe nie erwartet, dass USA, NATO und Pentagon einfach die Blamage, in Syrien an die Wand gespielt und auf Eis gelegt zu werden, akzeptieren würden. Sie würden alles in ihrer Macht stehende tun, um Russlands Job so schwierig wie möglich zu machen.
Diese Möglichkeit könnte sich aus den Pariser Anschlägen ergeben. Wenn die NATO-Länder mobil machen, könnten NATO-Flugzeuge in den selben Luftraum drängen wie die russischen Flugzeuge und damit gefährliche und explosive Situationen herbeiführen. Um Zusammen-stöße zu vermeiden, könnten sie auf Flugverbotszonen bestehen (erinnert sich noch jemand an die libysche Flugverbotszone, die zur Zerstörung des Landes führte?). Die NATO- Luftwaffe ist – verglichen mit der russischen – in einer Kampfsituation völlig wirkungslos. Allerdings befürchte ich, dass sie sehr wirksam darin ist, die Russen daran zu hindern, ihren Job zu machen.
Und sollte irgendein Land, wie etwa Frankreich oder Deutschland, beabsichtigen, eine eigenständige Politik zu führen, dann wird man ihm eine Mahnung zukommen lassen…
Meine größte Befürchtung besteht darin, dass sie in der Lage sein könnten, Russland in Syrien die Hände zu binden, wie sie es in der Ukraine gemacht haben, und damit einen dauerhaften Konflikt zu schaffen und Russland daran zu hindern ihn zu lösen. Das würde russische Ressourcen binden, und das ist zweifellos eines der Ziele.
Abgesehen davon wollen die USA immer noch Assad absetzen und sie sind verärgert darüber, dass sich Syriens ‚moderate‘ Opposition in Moskau trifft, und über friedliche Wahlen, eine neue Verfassung und eine Übereinkunft mit Assad diskutiert. Die syrische Opposition begann, Informationen über IS-Standorte mit Russland zu teilen, und sich Assads Streit-kräften anzuschließen, um die Islamisten zu bekämpfen. Mit anderen Worten: Moskau erreichte in zwei Monaten, was die USA und der Westen im Verlaufe von Jahren nicht erreichen konnten (oder vielmehr wollten).
Es gibt noch eine weitere Überlegung, weshalb die USA und ihre NATO-Vasallen verzweifelt eine Rückkehr auf den Kriegsschauplatz versuchen müssen. Die USA sind dabei, ihren Zugriff auf den Mittleren Osten zu verlieren, und dies einschließlich des Iraks, wo sie immer noch Truppen stehen haben. Die irakische Regierung, die sie selbst eingesetzt haben, hat in Baghdad ein gemeinsames russisch-iranisch-irakisches anti-IS-Zentrum eingerichtet. Irgendwie haben das die USA zuerst nicht bemerkt. Aber als der irakische Präsident und das Parlament versuchten, die Russen um Hilfe bei der Bombardierung des IS auf irakischem Territorium zu bitten, reagierten die USA hysterisch. Meine Vorhersage war, dass die USA dies nicht zulassen würden (nachzulesen in ESR5: Syria Game Changer). Die Iraker sind frustriert darüber, dass die USA nicht einmal versuchen, den IS zu bekämpfen. Die USA müssen sie in ihre Schranken weisen, und die Mobilisierung der NATO könnte indirekt diesem Ziel dienen.
Der größtmögliche Unfall: Sollten die Führer der USA und der NATO sich als komplett verrückt erweisen (und soweit ich sehe, ist das nicht auszuschließen), so könnte dies in eine ausweglose Situation – den neuen Weltkrieg – führen.
Ich dachte, ich sollte diese Warnung aussprechen. In Wahrheit glaube ich, dass Putin und Lavrov in der Lage sein werden, diese Situation zu entschärfen, und eine gemeinsame Lösung für alle herbei zu führen. Unglücklicherweise sind diese beiden die einzigen Er-wachsenen im Raum – während die westlichen ‚Führer‘ der Aufgabe nicht gewachsen sind. Wie dem auch sei: Hoffentlich ist der Selbsterhaltungstrieb der Europäer stark genug, um sie auf der Seite der Vernunft zu halten.
Auf einer anderen Ebene finden persönliche Angriffe auf den russischen Verteidigungs-minister Sergey Shoygu und den Sportminister Vitaliy Mutko und den gesamten russischen Sport statt. All diese gleichzeitigen Angriffe dienen einerseits dazu, Verwirrung und Instabilität zu schaffen und die Russen zu beschäftigen, andererseits dazu, von den wirklichen Problemen des Westens, des Mittleren Ostens und der Ukraine abzulenken. Ich werde darüber in einem folgenden Artikel sprechen.

Paris attack sites:
Bataclan concert venue, 50 boulevard Voltaire, 11th district – gun and suicide bomb attacks
Stade de France, St Denis, just north of Paris – explosions near venue as France played Germany in football friendly
Le Carillon bar, 18 rue Alibert, 10th district – gun attack
Le Petit Cambodge restaurant, 20 rue Alibert, 10th district – gun attack
La Belle Equipe, 92 rue de Charonne, 11th district – gun attack
La Casa Nostra restaurant, 2 rue de la Fontaine au roi, 11th district – gun attack
From BBC: Busiest time
The attack on the 1,500-seat Bataclan hall was by far the deadliest of Friday night’s attacks. Gunmen opened fire on concert-goers watching US rock group Eagles of Death Metal. The event had been sold out.
The series of attacks not far from the Place de la Republique and the Place de la Bastille struck at the heart of the capital when cafes, bars and restaurants were at their busiest. Customers were singled out at venues including a pizza restaurant and a Cambodian restaurant.
The other target was the Stade de France, on the northern fringe of Paris, where President Hollande and 80,000 other spectators were watching a friendly international between France and Germany, with a TV audience of millions more. The president was whisked to safety after the first of three explosions just outside the venue to convene an emergency cabinet meeting. Three attackers were reportedly killed there.
As the extent of the bloodshed became clear, Mr Hollande went on national TV to announce a state of emergency for the first time in France since 2005. The decree enables the authorities to close public places and impose curfews and restrictions on the movement of traffic and people. Within an hour, security forces had stormed the concert hall and all four attackers there were dead. Three had blown themselves up and a fourth was shot dead by police. Another attacker was killed in a street in eastern Paris, reports said.
Speaking after arriving at the concert hall, President Hollande said the attackers would be fought “without mercy”. US President Barack Obama spoke of “an outrageous attempt to terrorise innocent civilians”. UK PM David Cameron said he was shocked and pledged to do “whatever we can to help”. Paris Mayor Ann Hidalgo announced that all schools, museums, libraries, gyms, swimming pools and markets would be shut on Saturday.
Image below: Spectators flooded the pitch of the Stade de France after the France v Germany football match as news of the attacks spread.
As of this hour, it appears there are at least 150 people dead in several coordinated Paris terror attacks. Western media already pinned it on ISIL and it was reported that at least one of the attackers supposedly yelled, ‘for Syria.’
First of all, RIP all the victims and deepest condolences to their families.
Unfortunately, the Paris events are a direct and easily predictable consequence of the NATO/US/West’s actions and meddling in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, as well as elsewhere in the Middle East. ISIL (aka, Daesh or ISIS) is staffed in big part by former Saddam Hussein’s officers, who are Sunnis and who had been dismissed by the US after they took over Iraq. The rest of ISIL is formed from the armed opposition left over after Libya was destroyed by NATO (including French) strikes, parts of Al Qaeda, and other Islamist rebels financed by US, Saudis and Qatar.
Also, we never had the chance to officially say RIP to the 224 victims of the Russian Kogalymavia Airbus320 flight from Sinai, Egypt. From my FT team and myself personally: our most sincere condolences to the families of all victims.
I have some serious intel about who benefitted from blowing up the Russian Airbus320 in Sinai. An article is coming as soon as I get the chance.
The attacks in Paris and the Russian Egypt flight catastrophe are directly related to Syria, Assad and Russia’s successful anti-ISIL operation.
France has declared a state of emergency, closed down the airport and borders. This may signal the turnaround in the EU’s policy of open borders. This also may signal a turnaround of the EU policies towards refugees and migrants that are flooding Europe.
The attacks in Paris, already blamed on ISIL and refugees, may trigger a tough response from the French government. The closure of other EU countries’ borders is also possible.
The most worrisome is that if it is classified as an attack on one of the NATO members, this may become the signal for NATO mobilization. We all know how much criticism NATO has drawn in recent years, some calling for its disbanding as an organisation that has outlived its usefulness. This is a perfect storm for NATO. Such situation may confirm their usefulness and provide justification for their existence. It appears that there is already a groundwork for such NATO mobilization being prepared by MSM and Obama.
Considering the above, the attacks in Paris may have been a false flag designed to provoke NATO mobilization. The attack on the Russian Airbus320 in Egypt may have been orchestrated for the same purpose, among others: to make NATO countries agree to mobilization and intensification of bombings of ISIL in Syria and Iraq.
These things are often designed to be multi-prong. This may have also been a warning to Hollande to toe the line. At the time of the attacks Hollande was at the stadium watching a match in close proximity to the explosions. Another thing that strikes me is that the match was between France and Germany. This effectively means that the warning was a hint to Germany to toe the line as well.
A similar warning took place previously when German plane Germanwings crashed in France. This happened immediately after Hollande and Merkel dared to defy the US in how they approached the Ukraine crisis, working with Russia on trying to stop war in Donbass. It also has to be noted that Russian plane blown up over Sinai was of the French manufacturer Airbus.
This effectively means the following:
After Russia’s successful bombing campaign in Syria, it was proven how ineffective (or how corrupt) the US/West’s bombings were. Thanks to Russian air support, Syrian army is now advancing on four directions at the same time, having gained control over half of the territory previously controlled by ISIL, with attack on their capital planned in the near future. Such miraculous turnaround was absolutely impossible to imagine just a few short weeks ago, before Russians went to Syria.
If it keeps up, Syria will be ISIL-free in a few months. I wrote in Earth Shift Report 5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER that Russian jets would squeeze US and NATO airforce planes out of Syrian airspace because they wouldn’t risk colliding directly with the Russians. And it has happened in the exact way predicted.
All Russia needs is for the US and West to get out of the way and let them do their job. This seemingly started happening with Obama/Kerry changing their rhetoric, talking negotiations and intel sharing. However, I fear that one thing is being said to Lavrov’s face and something entirely different behind the closed doors. I never thought that US/NATO/Pentagon would just accept the humiliation of being outplayed and sidetracked in Syria. They would do everything in their power to make Russia’s job as difficult as possible.
This possibility could arise out of Paris attacks. If NATO countries mobilize, NATO planes may crowd into the same air space as Russian planes, creating dangerous and volatile situations. To avoid collisions, they may insist on no-fly zones (remember Libya no-fly zone that led to the destruction of the country?). NATO airforce is completely ineffectual compared to the Russian airforce in a combat situation. However, I’m afraid they may be very effective at interfering/getting in the way of Russia doing her job.
And should any countries, such as France or Germany, attempt to conduct their own independent policies, they will be sent reminders.
The biggest concern of mine is that they may be able to tie up Russia’s hands in Syria, like they did in Ukraine, creating a zone of permanent frozen conflict and preventing Russia from resolving it. This will tie up Russian resources. It is undoubtedly one of the goals.
Besides, US still wants to unseat Assad and they are peeved that Syrian ‘moderate’ opposition is meeting in Moscow, discussing peaceful elections, new constitution and power sharing with Assad. Syrian opposition started sharing intel on ISIL locations with Russia and joining Assad’s army to fight the Islamists. In other words, Moscow managed to achieve in two months what the US/West couldn’t (or rather wouldn’t) in years.
There is another consideration why US and their NATO vassals desperately need to orchestrate a return. US is losing its grip on the Middle East, including Iraq, where they still have troops. Iraq government they themselves had brought to power, had created a joint Russia-Iran-Iraq anti-ISIL center in Baghdad. Somehow, US didn’t notice that at first. But when Iraq president and parliament tried to ask Russia for help in bombing ISIL on Iraq territory, US had a hysterical response. My prediction was that US wouldn’t let Iraqis ask for Russian help (read more in ESR5: Syria Game Changer). Iraqis are frustrated with the fact that US is not even trying to fight ISIL. US has to put them in their place. Mobilizing NATO could indirectly serve this purpose.
Worst case scenario: should US/NATO leaders turn out to be complete maniacs (and from what I am seeing, they may be), this can generate a situation of no return, leading to the new World War.
I thought I’d publish this warning. In truth, I believe that Putin and Lavrov will be able to defuse the situation and to create a more cooperative solution for all. Unfortunately, these two are the only adults in the room, with Western ‘leaders’ being not up to the task. However, hopefully, the sense of self-preservation of the Europeans will be enough to keep them on the side of reason.
On another note, personal attacks are taking place on Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu and Sports Minister Vitaliy Mutko, together with the entire Russian sport. All these simultaneous attacks are designed to disorient, destabilize and tie up Russian resources, as well as to distract from real problems in the West, Middle East and Ukraine. I will talk about the latter attacks in the upcoming article.

Goodbye Harper! Canada Celebrates New PM Trudeau’s Overwhelming Victory – With Analysis and Predictions
Goodbye Harper! Canada Celebrates New PM Trudeau’s Overwhelming Victory
With Analysis and Predictions!
Because Canada is so tightly connected to the US and because this victory by the opponent of the pro-US neocon Harper is so symptomatic of the Earth Shift we are experiencing, this is important for all to read!
Liberal Justin Trudeau has received 54% of the vote. It’s an overwhelming victory by Canadian standards, which will allow Trudeau to form a majority government. The people have rejected pro-US conservative neocon Harper’s policies (I wrote about his blatant interference in Ukraine and shale gas projects in 2014 and in early 2015). Instead, Canadians elected someone who’s described as Harper’s opposite in every possible way.
Trudeau is the hope of the country once considered a neutral peacemaker of the Western world. Canadians desperately want this image back, being tired of playing the loyal vassal to the White House. Harper’s government managed to turn on its head the once nice, environmentally friendly and neutral image of this northern country. By interfering in Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere, Harper had created a profit-at-all-cost war-mongering machine that is unlike Canada of old.
But can Trudeau change the tide?
As many of you know, my predictions, based on the Great Balancer Russia/Putin’s actions, is that the tide is indeed changing worldwide. Trudeau’s election is in stride with this sweeping Earth Shift change.
His young age and looks are also a huge advantage at this time in history (and let’s not forget his daddy’s legacy and name). He is seen as that hope for change so many Canadians long for. But will he be allowed to create the change? Or is Canada too deep in with the US and it’s too late? Is Trudeau for real, and can he be trusted?
Reader question posted in my latest article,
along with my answer:
AN IMPORTANT ADDITION AND UPDATE!
(to answer readers questions and comments):
Justin Trudeau and his wife’s heart chakra calibrations
Was Harper better for Canadian economy?
Canada’s role in the 2014 ukro-nazi coup and the destruction of Ukraine
Why am I not being interviewed by RT?
Question: I noticed one little thing in the RT video during a sequence featuring Trudeau and his wife – they both held their hands over their hearts. Could it signify they have open and active heart chakras – not everyone does it seems to me; I doubt Harper does.
I think Trudeau and his wife are genuinely trying, but it doesn’t mean they are angels. Actually, answering to another comment here, they obviously can’t be, being a part of the Western political spectrum. But they do reflect the needs and wishes of the majority of their voters. JT is as good as it gets right now for Canada, but it doesn’t mean he will do exactly what people want – as I explained above.
People have voted for Trudeau’s daddy/family track record more than for Justin himself, although his looks (let’s face it, people get attracted to outward looks) and his attitude do help a lot. I think the heart gesture was a learned gesture for both. They were trained to do so by their image makers – because, well… it looks good and genuine for their constituents. So, I wouldn’t go by the outward appearances.
I look into the root of the issue or person, and my calibrations (see my Chi Kinesiology Quantum Calibrations Scale) give much more insight into the truth.
Trudeau’s heart chakra isn’t very open: calibration 210, Chi 180. I would consider it very borderline from the stand point of a holistic and evolved being. But it’s much healthier than most politicians, which gives a certain hope. And it’s INFINITELY better than Harper’s heart chakra, which is practically non-existent. That is scary when the leader of your country has a non-existent heart chakra! I’d be very concerned, and his actions confirmed that. As an example, look at the fear mongering campaign he’d run for these elections!
For JT, it’s about as open as it can get for a Western politician. Same with his wife. Incidentally, Justin’s father had heart chakra that calibrated also at 210, Chi 185. Very similar. This gives one an idea what to expect from this politician.
Since politicians usually (with one or two exceptions in today’s world) aren’t messiahs or healers, they can’t have very open and beautiful heart chakras. Actually, if they did, they’d be eaten alive in the world of eat or be eaten. Only one head of state can afford to have a beautiful heart chakra, and this is because he has a literal wall of supporters helping him (I’m sure you all know who I am talking about). But most must be very guarded, calculating and cunning in that world – not a place for an open heart chakra.
As I said, the jury is out on how Justin Trudeau will perform in the future, but there is hope.
One more thing: someone posted a comment about the animosity existing between east and west and that Trudeau Sr. destroyed Canadian economy. The former is true in terms of certain distrust and alienation. The latter can be debated.
Certainly, some things offered by conservatives, such as running a tight ship, are attractive; certain things offered by liberals are also attractive, such as being environmentally conscious. In many ways, the two parties in Canada are much like the two parties in the US – often can’t tell them apart. It is a reasonable idea that working together they could balance each other’s weaknesses out. But let’s get real: the Western system is designed not as a cooperative system. They don’t want to work with each other – each wants to win and rule solo!
Under such circumstances, Trudeau is certainly a better choice on balance.
Moreover, in my above analysis I have addressed the people’s need to change the image of the country and the need to change the international policy of Canada. Internal finance/economy issues are different and they are not the focus at this time.
Economically speaking, at least 2 things Trudeau Sr. did were good:
Trudeau Sr. cracked down in his days on the Alberta oil and gas mafia, consisting in big part of heirs of those Bandera Ukraine nazis that collaborated with Hitler during WWII. These escaped in big part to Canada, US and Argentina after the defeat in WWII. Some of these criminals were up to their noses in blood of hundreds of thousands they executed, sometimes whole villages.
This is a dark page in Canada’s history, who accepted them because they had gold they stole from those they had killed. These people bought agricultural lands, which later became oil and gas fields, thus getting wealthy.
I know some in Canada may deny that what I am describing here is the case. In many cases these entities would keep their involvement under wraps – isn’t that the definition of a mafia?
So, this oil and gas mafia was allowed again to flourish during Harper. That led to the emboldening and much better financing of the Canada ukro-nazis, in turn also supported by Harper. These had sent monetary support to their western Ukraine contacts, trained ukro-nazis in Western Ukraine, financed and sent college and school teachers to Ukraine, staffed Ukraine MSM and helped re-write history books financed by Soros. Within short 10 years turned a once sane country called Ukraine into a crazed and hateful anti-Russia, facilitating 2014 ukro-nazi coup and civil war.
The participation of Canada in the destruction of Ukraine is enormous, both by Harper’s government officially and by Alberta Bandera-ukro-nazis privately, through their own resources. Their idea was to take revenge on Russia for their defeat and humiliation in WWII – and so far they’ve succeeded, practically destroying a once nice Ukraine.
Those who write comments like: “Harper was better for Canadian economy,” please keep in mind, Harper’s Canada takes a large chunk of blame for what happened in Ukraine. I’m sure no good citizen of Canada would want to prosper at the expense of any other country.
We can also talk about the terrible environmental track record of Harper. Prosperity at the expense of the environment isn’t good either.
Question: Why are you not being interviewed by RT, Lada?
At this time I don’t do video interviews due to certain privacy considerations. This may change in the future – I am debating with myself if I should perhaps start giving video interviews at some future point. Also, much is happening in my life and any interviews have been put on hold for now. I may have some audio interviews in the winter or spring.
I’ll keep you all posted.
