Catalonia Referendum: Lada Ray Multi-Dimensional Q&A (with Crimea, Scotland, Kurdistan parallels)

In WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOR 8 PREDICTIONS I was asked whether there will be a defining event during this GREAT EARTH SHIFT, and when. I replied that we are in it — inside THE event, that is. Multi-dimensionally, the Earth Shift isn’t an event, or a series of events, as we are led to believe by the sensationalist 3D MSM, and the so-called alternative press. It is a continuing PROCESS, resulting in a major change. Every country and every individual will continue experiencing this process in their own way, but make no mistake: we all experience it. The difference is those who are conscious, awake and understand my Earth Shift and Multi-Dimensional theories, will know that a crucial event is coming because they have been tuned into the process of the change from the start. Those who are ignorant and asleep will perceive the resulting event as a shocking catastrophe they never saw coming.

In the same WEBINAR 4 I predicted that a wave of secession movements, and conversely, unionist movements, will continue and intensify, and borders of a number of countries will change in the next 5 to 20 years. Some international clubs, country blocks and alliances will disappear or will have to go through a complete overhaul, while some new alliances and new geopolitical affinity groups will either appear or be reborn. They will gain momentum and expand.

It was also explained in WEBINAR 4 that violence, terrorism, the rise of the military and disproportioned use of police force are all trademarks of Period 8. They will continue and intensify till this Period runs its course. Much more was explained in previous Webinar 2 and Webinar 3.

For an example of terrorism and senseless violence look at the latest terrorist attack in Las Vegas, the largest ever such attack on US soil.

Catalonia independence referendum

Catalonia Independence Referendum: Lada Ray’s Multi-Dimensional Q&A

(with Crimea, Scotland, Kurdistan referendum parallels)

Why Catalans voted 90%+ in favor of seceding?

The results of the Catalan Independence Referendum are as follows:

Location CataloniaSpain
Date 1 October 2017
Results
Votes  %
 Yes 2,020,144 91.96%
 No 176,565 8.04%
Valid votes 2,196,709 97.10%
Invalid or blank votes 65,715 2.9%
Total votes 2,262,424 100.00%
Registered voters/turnout 5,313,564 42.58%

Per Catalan authorities, the crackdown and violent actions of Spanish police resulted in 700,000+ votes stolen. Guardia Civil was seen in many cases violently yanking ballot boxes full of votes out of the hands of people who tried to protect them. In other cases documented by international observers, the polling stations were simply blocked by Spanish police and people were unable to vote. The turnout would have been greater if such actions didn’t occur and the free vote did take place.

It was anticipated that the referendum result would be in favor of the Catalan independence. However, such high percentage of favorable votes surprised most. Spanish government caused the vote for independence to skyrocket as a protest against their heavy-handed approach. The more pressure Madrid put on Barcelona, the more the undecided Catalans leaned towards independence.

The result of the Catalan referendum compares to the Crimea and Donbass referendum results, where on average 90%-95% voted to secede from Ukraine. Similar results were achieved in 2006 in Pridnestrovie (95% voted to re-unite with Russia, after prior secession from Moldova) and in Gagauzia autonomy (in 2014 over 90% Gagauzs voted to secede from Moldova IF Moldova stopped being a sovereign state and was absorbed by Romania).

The result of the Catalan referendum is binding, which means Catalonia should begin making steps towards secession from Spain. But not so fast. It won’t be so simple…

I have discussed my prediction on what will happen after Catalan referendum, how it will evolve and how the EU and the world would be influenced by this event, in WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE VIDEO Q&A. 

Why was there so much violence displayed by Spanish police / Guardia Civil? And related question: why was Madrid government so callous and unyielding about the referendum? 

Ruptly video from Barcelona during Catalan Referendum Oct 1, 2017 – violent police actions (graphic!):

As explained in WEBINAR 4: LADA RAY PERIOR 8 PREDICTIONS, the government interference and armed violence is one of the traits of Period 8. Therefore, we have to expect continued, and in some cases (sorry to say), escalating violence in those countries that chose a violent way.

The Great Earth Shift is changing much of what we used to perceive as a given. Some countries and some governments simply can’t cope with the fast change.

The Spanish Rajoy government is a typical neo-liberal globalist entity. When it has perceived that the familiar and comfortable structures around it have begun disintegrating, the thin surface veneer of ‘democracy’ has fallen off and it lashed out in the most ungracious way.

During this Earth Shift we will continue observing how certain globalist entities and certain ‘leaders’ start losing it, unable to cope with the changes, which they, in their warped worldview, didn’t see coming. Others will forget about the pretend ‘democracy’ they supposedly were a part of, and will tighten their grip on power over their population.

The clearest example of being unable to cope with changes and losing it, with subsequent tightened grip on power without any consideration for the rights nor lives of the people, is Ukraine, including Ukraine’s 2014 coup and subsequent ukro-nazi Kiev junta in power, and an all-out war against the people of Donbass.

Why wasn’t there violence during Scottish referendum?

But what about the truly democratic and developed Western European countries, you may ask. What about UK’s amicable behavior during Scottish independence referendum? After all, London hasn’t lashed out at Scotland; no national guard nor violence was observed.

First, let me just say that London’s measured behavior during Scottish referendum was admirable and mature and it stood in stark contrast to the behavior of Kiev, Madrid or Ankara in similar circumstances. However, that said, there is a very good reason for that — make it three reasons!

1. UK, in its many years of experience of manipulating the world into wars, without actually truly participating in them, and many years of colonizing other countries where regimes were installed and quietly manipulated behind the scenes, has developed a very good system of quiet persuasion and geopolitical/economic manipulation. They are a lot more adept at how to do it behind the scenes and without violence.

2. Between us, I seriously believe that London knew the Scottish independence bid would fail, and therefore, they really could afford to play it cool. They knew the vote would be divided. All that was needed to be done was to apply some very subtle pressure here and there.

Catalonia is completely different that way. It was clear that the majority would vote for secession, and Spanish government simply saw no way of persuading Catalans otherwise. As a consequence, they simply lost it.

3. After the Catalan vote, there is renewed talk of a new Scottish independence referendum. Even if it succeeds, UK will continue trying to subtly delay and influence the situation in such a way as to make the secession a very remote prospect, or to make it legitimate on paper only. Just observe what is happening with Brexit — how seemingly slow it is, and who knows if it really is happening or not. Exactly as I predicted in Special Predictions Video ESR 12 THE FUTURE OF THE EU (BREXIT, TTIP/TPP & EU revolts). 

That said, London may lose it too, should Scotland challenge it too openly. So far it’s not happening, and I don’t see it as high probability as Scottish politicians are treading very softly. For the sake of all UK citizens, I hope Ukraine and Catalonia lessons have been learned and violence can be avoided.

I can tell you that the vast majority of Russians, looking across the border and observing Ukraine madness, have determined that they choose the opposite: peace, unity and stability.

Another interesting detail is that Scotland is also quietly negotiating with the EU to be accepted as a member instead of UK, which technically could favor the secession vote. This is yet another reason my prediction from ESR12 THE FUTURE OF THE EU that it will take years for Brexit to take place, if at all, is being confirmed. London will attempt to delay its rift with EU in order to keep Scotland on board.

Why Spanish government refuses to recognize the Catalan referendum

The Spanish government can’t possibly recognize the Catalan vote. It would mean losing the richest and best-to-do part of the country, 20-25% of Spanish economy, 1/3 of all foreign investments and 1/3 of all exports.

Catalans believe they are getting an unfair shake when they get less back from Madrid than they contribute to the country’s economy. Without Barcelona, Spain will simply become a much diminished and significantly poorer state.

Meanwhile, economically speaking, Catalonia may also lose out from independence. EU already warned that independent Catalonia may not be accepted as a separate member of the EU, since Spain — an EU member — would never agree to that. Without this, Catalonia won’t enjoy free trade perks other EU members do, thus increasing the cost of exports.

But not all is measured in terms of money and economy. As I predicted since 2014, in Period 8 and during the Great Earth Shift, economy is secondary to geopolitics and social change.

As discussed in WEBINAR 4, this is the time of secessions, referendums and changing borders. Period 8 and the Earth Shift will see to it: everything not fastened well will be swept away, anything that’s rotting will be demolished, and new, better, stronger and healthier structures will emerge.

A few facts: Catalonia was the first to ban the cruel and inhumane bull fights, while the rest of Spain is lagging. Spain is a monarchy, while Catalans are much more progressive and they want to be a republic. Catalans have a history of standing up against regimes. During the 1930s Spanish Civil War Barcelona was the last hold-out of the Spanish Republic, while the rest of Spain succumbed to Franco.

Why did local police and firemen try to protect the voters? 

When local Catalan police and firemen realized that Spanish Guardia Civil was attacking people and not letting them cast their vote, many of them stood with their people, protecting them from the armed Spanish police. As a result some of the local police and firemen were injured, others were seen on camera conflicted, crying and hiding their faces while Catalans lauded and thanked them.

This is understandable. These civil servants gave an oath to the Madrid government, however their conscience didn’t allow them to stand idle when civilians were being attacked and prevented from casting their democratic vote. For many of them it was a huge emotional drama and a huge inner conflict.

In Catalonia we just saw a demo of a rift between two sides of the armed forces, civil servants and police, which we may observe in other countries as well as the Earth Shift unfolds. Some local civil servants may choose to defend the population from central government’s aggression, therefore fulfilling their true duty, while others will choose to obey undemocratic orders and attack unarmed civilians. This rift is bound to occur in those countries that have chosen a violent way.

Mass celebrations in Barcelona, following referendum:

Striking parallels with Crimea, Donbass and Ukraine

We have seen this unfold in Ukraine since 2014 in the most striking manner. In the case of Ukraine the divisions were very clear from the start. Many of those in the armed forces and police who were against the junta resigned or took the side of the people. Many had been killed as a result. Some defected and joined Donbass self-defence.

Crimea demonstrated an even more decisive and striking division. Out of 20,000 Ukrainian troops stationed on the Crimean peninsula as of March 2014, only 10% or 2,000 chose to move back to Ukraine after Crimean independence referendum, followed by Crimea re-joining Russia. The rest chose to join the Russian Army and Navy and stay in Crimea, demonstrating very clearly where their allegiances really were. That included the supreme commander of the Ukraine Navy and almost all higher officers. Moreover, some of those who initially moved back to Ukraine with their families, want to return to Crimea.

Of course, the Crimean situation is absolutely unique in world history: during the entire referendum and the passage of control over to Russia there was no violence and no fire was exchanged between two armies. All Ukrainian military who wanted to move back to Ukraine were given free passage, and even allowed to take with them their tanks, ships and jets. In truth, Russians simply didn’t want all that junk. 😉

Notably, there were only two shots fired, which killed one person on the Ukraine army side and a Cossack volunteer on the Russian side. The shots were fired by a sniper, who, per color revolution manual, was attempting to create violence and mutual blame between sides. That attempt failed as the peaceful referendum and orderly withdrawal of Ukraine troops continued.

In Barcelona we saw what would have happen in Crimea, if Russian Army and Navy didn’t ensure that the democratic right of citizens to cast their vote was protected. But multiply that by thousands. There are reports that in Catalonia 2 or 3 people died, and over 840 were injured as a result of Guardia Civil crackdown. In Crimea the result would have been incomparably more devastating, if Russia didn’t step in on time. We are talking thousands of deaths — and that’s before Kiev would have begun shelling civilians from heavy artillery. The war against Donbass civilians is proving what Kiev junta is capable of.

The Kurdish referendum is yet another example of the same. There are at least 40 million Kurds in the Middle East. They are divided between 4 countries and are considered the largest ethnicity without a country on the planet.

As expected, during the September 25, 2017 referendum the vast majority of Kurds voted for independence from Iraq. However, practically speaking this is impossible, short of an all-out civil war. At this time, no great powers are interested in a new civil war in Iraq. What is likely to happen is that Kurds in all four countries will use the results of the referendum to bargain for better deals with respective central governments. Syria’s Assad, with the urging by Russia, already announced that he would be willing to grant Syrian Kurds a broad autonomy. Turkish Erdogan is so far unyielding. Iraq government will definitely be negotiating with the Kurds. As a result, Kurds will live in a de-facto separate state, keeping all or most their oil profits, but within Iraq. This will be the case for at least several more years. After that, more changes are coming and the world map will be very different from what we’ve known.

Also, an interesting thing to note about the Kurdish referendum is this: what on the surface seems like a secession movement is in fact a unionist movement! In this case, the four divided parts of the Kurdish population strive to reunite. In that, the Kurdish referendum is completely different from Catalonia or Scottish referendums. At the same time, it bears a striking similarity to the secession-unionist movements of Crimea (the most successful so far), Donbass, Pridnestrovie, S. Ossetia, Abkhazia and Gagauzia. In all cases, these parts of ex-Soviet republics wanted to secede in order to re-unite with Russia.

We have touched upon the nature of secession and unionist movements during Earth Shift Webinar 5: LADA RAY LIVE VIDEO Q&A.

The Wild ’90s: How Russia Was Without Putin (by Nemo)

This is a follow-up to Lada Ray’s latest article Why St. Petersburg Metro Bombing Coincided with Putin – Lukashenko St. Pete Talks.

In it we discussed the St. Petersburg bombing, how it’s linked to the preceding ‘anti-corruption’ protests in Russia and Belarus, Dmitry Medvedev, Lukashenko’s blunders, and Putin-Lukashenko meeting in St. Pete.

Today, FT contributor Nemo (Stanislav Sokolov) is offering us a very telling glimpse into what was happening in Russia during the ’90s, before Putin came to power. This is a must know in order to put contemporary events into proper perspective.

Tomorrow’ I’ll offer you a third article of this cycle, in which I’ll tell you more about Russian anti-corruption protests and the truth behind them!

Dear Lada,

After the events in Moscow, when kids were abused by the “opposition” and the overall anti-Russian/anti-Putin rhetoric, I got angry – it hit too close to home. I published now a new article: The ”Wild 90s” in Russia, as reflected in people’s memory. Part 2.
http://stanislavs.org/the-wild-90s-in-russia-as-reflected-in-peoples-memory-part-2/

Which is part my take on the events, part my own recollection from the 90s, and part translations of people’s testimonials. You are welcome to use the materials in it if you are going to write an article about the recent unrest in Belorussia and Russia.

All the best,

Stanislav

With his kind permission, I am offering you Stanislav Sokolov’s article about Russia’s Wild ’90s, and how Vladimir Putin changed that!

Two years ago I published an article The ”Wild 90s” in Russia, as reflected in people’s memory, where I translated one testimonial of a survivor of the Yeltsin’s Wild 90’s in Russia. Such survivors are many, yet many more perished – in Russia more people died during Yeltsin than during WWII. In that article I also detailed Yeltsin’s coup d’etat of November 1993.

Now, a few days ago, the ignominious Navalny organised an “anti-corruption” rally in Moscow and several of Russia’s cities. I am not going to go into the details of how only 8000 people out of the 12 million population of Moscow was seen at this colour revolution attempt. I will not go into details of how Navalny turned to the political paedophilia, luring school-aged kids onto the streets with the promise of paying them €10000 if they manage to get arrested, and how the “political speeches” of said kids said that they want to buy sneakers. The use of kids seems to be in the instruction book of any colour revolt worth its name (see “protests” against Charles de Gaulle). I will not go into the details of how Navalny – a jobless man – manages to own expensive car, finance organisation of revolts and produce Hollywood-class films, and why this corruption fighter has several criminal corruption cases over him regarding illegal forest deals.

What I want to go into detail about, is the main chant of Navalny and co., of all the anti-Russian, Russophobic traitors organising such revolts: “Putin must go”. That’s all of their agenda. They say absolutely nothing about how Russia should be governed or about the future. At best they position themselves as the next presidents and say a few abstract words about how there’ll be no corruption and everyone will be equal. Aha! The same manifestos were proclaimed in 1917. And in 1991.

And this is what I am coming towards. All the Navalny-class “liberals” are aiming to bring Russia to the condition of the Yeltsin’s 1993-1999 era. The Desolation of Yeltsin as I like to call it, referring to the Desolation of Smaug.

By 1999 the “progress and democracy” in Russia reached such levels that the population was dying out from hunger, military and statehood all but destroyed. Foreign NATO-sponsored Islamic insurgency in Chechenia was at its peak. Here is a link to an article from Lenta.ru from 29.09.1999 with the telling title “Russia begs USA for a little more food”. Sad and detrimental, yet it fully reflects the reality of those days.

My family and I were touched by those events before we emigrated in 1993. I remember well how I had to stand at the entrance to a market, selling toys, books, plastic bags (yes, the Western plastic bags, if you could get your hands on them, were worth a few kopeks), various small items from home – anything, just to get some money so as to buy food and set something aside for the vague plans for the future. We were a middle-class family, my grandfather forked in the 50s at the Far East, where the Soviet government paid the so-called “Northern money”, so were well-off, until 1992, when the whole country and its population got robbed over night. By the likes of Berezovskij, Yeltsin, Kuchma, Nemtsov, Khodorkovskij, Navalny, Kudrin, Yavlinskij and other “communists” cum “oligarchs” and “democrats”.

The upper right corner in the image below illustrates what it was like from my point of view, selling your last things.


Do you remember the 90s? All of the “civilised West” are our friends, while USA is the best pal.

Below I want to translate testimonials from several people of that time, as they recall it now, warning the youth of today not to repeat the same naïve mistake as the one that brought chaos on their own heads.

The first collection of testimonials starts as an open, public domain letter, titled “Anyone, who remembers well what happened in the 90s, should be grateful to this man…”, and it originally appeared at LiveJournal here.

I turned 17 in 1991.

All the trash that is now criticizing Putin was in power back then.

I don’t remember anything good of what they did. I remember how they destroyed my country, I remember how people were not paid wages for years, how a professor of nuclear physics worked with me and cleaned animal skins with a scythe, how my mother, having worked for 23 years as a head nurse of the paediatric intensive care unit and revived many a dozen children, became a “shuttle trader”. (Translator note for the Westerners: people went to China or West and bought some cheap goods, smuggled them and tried to make a living reselling)

I remember the gangs of bastards, collecting tributes, even from old ladies selling sunflower seeds. (Translator note: market gangs, the utmost dregs of society. Berezovskij came from that “environments”.) I remember how kidnapping for ransom in my city of Nalchik was turned into an industry, and how the filth that did that was considered respectable people.

I remember how happily Americans were let into the most secret military facilities, how for their sake aircraft, missiles, submarines and other achievements of my homeland were cut to pieces.

I remember the poor old people begging. I remember the downtrodden Afghan war veterans, who were mutilated in battles, served the orders of their Motherland, are now spat upon by today’s “liberasts” (Translator note: common in today’s Russia folk by-name, combining the words for “liberal” and “homosexual”).

Shall I continue???

I also remember how, two weeks after Putin came to power, the kidnappings stopped. I remember how the Chechens, whom I personally always respected, from the enemies of Russia were reborn into her faithful warriors.

I see how my country began again to build gas pipelines, aircraft, ships and so on. I see how my sons, like I in my childhood, become proud of their country. Everything is relative.

Hence is the question: How can “liberasts”, who sold their Homeland, have the audaciousness to blather all sorts of nonsense about Putin? What have they left after themselves to him, to bark that “Putin ruined” something?

It is, first and foremost, their fault in what is going on in Ukraine today, it is they, who have created this situation in 1991. Nemtsov and his ilk… there must be no monuments to them, least of all in the centre of Moscow. (Translator note: “Liberals” push for that after the Western sacrificial murder of Nemtsov in Moscow). They need to be burned and the ashes scattered to the wind.

Appeal to the young people: do NOT believe the “liberatst”, don’t look up at the “stars” (what a retarded term), like Ksenia Sobchak, do not take the example from prostitutes and bastards. They are all lying.

We are the greatest country in the world. Ask how many achievements ranging from military exploits and to science, sports, and everything else, belongs to our compatriots.

Do not let those, whom we taught to wash, teach us culture. (Translator note to the Westerners: Russian Anna Yaroslavna (born in 1024), when she became the Queen of France, brought with her the tradition of frequent washing – banja, which is common in Russia, yet was viewed as strange in the then W.Europe., as well as introducing at the French Court the custom of eating with silverware, of reading, and many other civilisational traits.)

Don’t let those who begot fascism, the Inquisition, and other atrocities, teach us the love of mankind. Those who marry perverts in the Churches, teach us human values.

We are Russia, and our path is different from theirs.”

Comments from the post with additional testimonials:

Tatiana Potapova: “I, too, remember the gangs of bastards who held the markets in fear. Snickering masters of life. And I also remember homeless children, lousy, dirty, hungry, who raided the trading rows of the markets and would grab from the shelves anything edible. I pushed food into their hands. There were so many of them! The officials were not interested in their fate. Where they lived? If they had parents? Nobody picked them off the streets and into boarding schools for approximately ten years. Since Putin came to power, children were rounded up and sent to the boarding schools. Now, those officials who ruthlessly robbed the people and as a result small children ended up on the street, hungry, unwashed, not having seen any kindergartens or schools… now these officials hate Putin and call him a thief… They project their sin onto Putin. Probably because they can get neither sleep nor rest.”

Olga Malinova: “I remember the 90s. My brother and I wanted to eat one day, went to the kitchen, found only the millet and vegetable oil. We pulled our last few rubles, and spent them on a loaf of bread.”

Valery Vishnyakov: “We borrowed money from the neighbours for a half of a black bread. And our father was an oil industry worker. He was just not paid the money. I used to give my food to the younger brother. Parents still do not know about that… Give us back Stalin. The iron curtain. The Soviet Union…”

Liliya Karimova: “I Remember how bad it was. I went to the post office for aid money, but the money were not transferred for more than six months. Used to come home crying not knowing what to cook, it was good that the collective farm gave grain that we would bring to the mill – at least we got bread, and had our own cow, otherwise I would have died of hunger. Writing this now and crying.”

Maria Glova: “I was unable to go after the school to Institute, as parents – doctors – had their wages delayed and they were afraid that I would not be able to find food in another city. In those days we lived off the garden, planted potatoes, ploughed field 5 days in a week and spent 2 days in the garden.”

Eketerina Yasakova: “And I remember only too well the 90s. Terrible years. My children then were just toddlers”


The second testimonial article is titled “The answer to those, who say they live badly in Putin’s Russia”. This material is much more down to earth, gritty and grim, like the years it describes.


Subtext: “How I was surviving in the ’90s, in Russia without Putin”

A young man in his 20s wrote to me from his iPhone from Russia about how his life sucks “under Putin”. I briefly described to him how I lived without Putin in the late 90s.

I will write this again, maybe it will come in handy to someone from Ukraine.

Morning.

Woke up, thank God that I’m alive. Had breakfast, tea with jam from my grandmother. That’s all the food. There is nothing more to eat.

Later in the morning.

There is no work, the factory was bankrupted by Nemtsovs-Kasyanov and other f*ing privatizers, nothing to do… But the tea, even with jam is not food. It is necessary to find food. Mobiles did not yet exist, so I go to a friend who is in the same position, but worse, because he has a wife and a son. What are we going to do, where to look for food? Decided to go fishing.

Morning, closer to dinner.

Threw in the net from a boat probably constructed during Lenin’s time. Waited. While waiting, caught some frogs, made a campfire, roasted frog legs, ate them. Wanted to smoke, but have no money… walked down the street, collecting the “butts”, nearby others like us harvested, started swearing at us, saying that’s not our territory. We calm them down. Will not go into details of how… you survive however you can.

Dinner.

Rummaged through all of the waste dumps already, not a single thread of metal left. (Translator’s note: People scavenged any metal and sold it to collectors. Pipes, machinery, anything got melted. The same process is going in Ukraine now. If anyone wants a glorified fictitious parallel, think Rey from Star Wars, The Force Awakens.) Telling my friend – let’s go to the village nearby. We went. Knocked at the first house. Explained why we came to a grandmother, age 80. We collect metal, if you have any, we can help to dig up the garden lot as the payment of it… Grandmother asked to plough up 3 acres, flooded in the spring. We did that. Plus I, as a radio hobbyist, repaired antenna on her TV. She gave us 8 kilogrammes of aluminium pans, and even money!!!

After dinner.

For the money we immediately bought a pack of cigarettes and 2 Snickers. We ate the Snickers right away, to at least have some strength, had a smoke and went to deliver metal to the collectors. Delivered, got a few kopecks… But at least that’s something. Went to the nets.

Afternoon snack time.

Came to nets, and there see some blokes pulling them out and taking our fish. Without hesitation, we beat them up very very seriously, although we knew that they are in the same situation as us. But to steal at the time of hunger from your own people is worse than being a liberal! Took out fish and went home.

Evening.

Gave part of the fish to the wives, carried the other part to the market. Sold for a penny, but at least that’s something. Bought pasta and sugar. Brought that home. Bought for the remaining money 0.5l of homebrew from a local hag.

Late in the evening.

Sitting at the porch, drinking, smoking and looking to a brighter future. A radio of Chinese make says: An unknown to anyone Vladimir Putin may possibly become a temporary figure after the ailing Boris Yeltsin…

So, young people of 20-30 years. If your life is shitty in Russia, under Putin, look at Ukraine now, or at my personal experience of survival in the ’90s. Although, all the same, you’ll learn nothing.

Sincerely, Pavel Smirnov.


Putin’s promise in 2000: “I shall be with the Army, I shall be with the Fleet, I shall be with the people. And together we shall rebuild the Army, the Fleet and the Country.” And he didn’t lie. Thank you, Vladimir Vladimirovich.

Russia hacked US Elections… by telling the truth (by 1EarthUnited)

putin-trump-billboard-in-montenegro-lets-make-the-world-great-again-2

This is a guest post by FuturisTrendcast contributor Maddie @ 1EarthUnited blog.  I thought she summed it up perfectly.

1EarthUnited

Hi Lada, thought you’d get a kick out of my recent comment regarding “Russian Hacking”, I referenced your invaluable Trump webinar to shed light and clarity on this topic:

  1. https://sentinelblog.com/2017/03/21/fbi-chief-confirms-probe-of-russias-election-actions/

    “Truth is, Lada Ray has shown that the Russians did indeed influence US elections, but done in a sophisticated manner that the morons at the FBI cannot grasp. They have no clue what to even look for and yet Comey keeps insisting that the Russians hack the election.
    Technically, Russians did not physically “hack” the election, they didn’t have to. Yet they very effectively steered the election towards Trump using a very sophisticated psyop strategy that evade the knuckleheads, even if FBI/ CIA understood the tactics, there’s nothing they can really do about it – IT’S CALLED EXPOSING THE TRUTH!”

    This strategy employed makes Trump look credible toward his supporters and everyone starts questioning the lamestream media regarding “fake news”. Putin is a master at this type of psychological operation, he uses it very effectively with his own population, which sees his approval rating consistently above 90% for close to 2 decades! Trump is emulating his mentor Putin, seizing absolute control and making a mockery of his adversaries in the deep state. Putin did the very same thing early in his career when he had to politically consolidate control from the Russian Oligarchs. Savvy Trump is doing the very same thing!!

    Trying to connect “hackers” with the Russian gov’t may prove impossible, because the WikiLeaks info dump concerning the DNC and Hillary’s emails was an inside job, leaked from intelligence insiders who are sick of the deep state. FBI Director Comey is left putting on a dog and pony show. 🙂

Facebook bans RT just one day before Trump inauguration

‘We try not to believe in conspiracy theories’ 

Facebook blocked Russia Today (RT) just one day before Trump’s inauguration. After 24 hour blackout, Facebook finally unblocked RT.

Says RT editor in chief Margarita Simonyan: ‘By some strange coincidence, suddenly three major social networks began questioning or banning us, plus we suddenly received requests for high-profile interviews with major US media. In all of those they tried to present RT as the murderers of US democracy, etc. We very hard try not to believe in conspiracy theories, and we sincerely hope it’s just a coincidence.’

Yep, this is a co-incidence all right: it happens to coincide with Trump’s inauguration.

WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?

How Trump presidency will impact the world: Lada Ray Exclusive Trendcast & Predictions for the next 2-3 years

The official announcement will be posted on FT later today!

OOPS! Ukraine’s Hero Nadezhda Savchenko is… the Kremlin Agent!

I confess, I’m tired of hearing that American billionaire Donald Trump is ‘Kremlin agent.’ This is the kind of story likely to be concocted by those who are desperate, knowing that power is slipping out of their hands. This accurately describes the situation with Clinton, Soros, and the whole neo-liberal NWO camp.

But wait! Putin and Kremlin’s outreach is far and wide. Not only Trump, CEO of ExxonMobil Rex Tillerson and Trump’s top advisors, but the rabidly Russophobic and pretty crazy Nadezhda Savchenko also turns out to be Putin’s super-spy within the Kiev ukro-nazi junta!

Recall what I predicted in 

Lada Ray Report: Real Reason Putin Pardoned Murderer Nadezhda Savchenko

In the aforementioned May 26, 2016 report I wrote:

Savchenko’s “card will be played by Timoshenko… I’m sure others will also try to play her card. She’ll be wined, dined and courted. They’ll try to groom and mold her into something. But I think… she’ll definitely get herself in trouble within 6-7 months, or better yet, she’ll get the whole Kiev junta in trouble.

In short, a pawn such as Savchenko is very useful as a tool and bargaining chip. She doubles as an unpredictable Trojan Horse.

She’s about to fulfill her purpose. I intend to kick back and watch how Poroshenko and Kiev will manage to keep this loose cannon under control. This should be quite a show.”

We are right on schedule, people! Hardly 6 months have passed since I wrote that, and…

This began a week ago:

Nadezhda Savchenko, in defiance of Kiev, traveled to Minsk (seat of Minsk 2), where she met with leaders of DLPR Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky. During the meeting she discussed the POW / prisoner exchange. The All-for-all prisoner exchange is stipulated in the Minsk 2 peace agreement, brokered by Putin, Merkel and Hollande, but Poroshenko and the Kiev junta are refusing to abide by it.

Savchenko has tried to get it going again, achieving an understanding with Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky. In her interview she stated that when she talked to the DLPR leaders, she saw them as human beings with whom it is necessary to negotiate, not as separatists and enemies.

This has generated a storm of a scandal in Ukraine. The woman for whom the whole Ukraine and much of the EU cried just a short 7 months ago, demanding her liberation from the ‘brutal Kremlin regime,’ whom the junta elevated to the near-godly status, electing her in absentia into the Rada and Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, this same Nadezhda Savchenko was immediately branded as traitor and Putin’s agent.

Yulia Timoshenko has announced that Savchenko is expelled from her party Batkivshchina. Rada deputies are preparing to oust her from the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and from the Rada committee on national security.

Is it any surprise that Savchenko is being targeted for actually doing something sensible and positive? In the land of the blind one-eyed man is king. In the crazy, warped reality of the Kiev ukro-nazi junta, even Savchenko is the height of sense and sensibility!

In a nutshell, per Lada Ray Report: Real Reason Putin Pardoned Savchenko, the ‘sly Putin’s plan’ of sending back to Ukraine the Savchenko Trojan Horse has worked! Get your popcorn or semechki and watch what happens next. The Kiev junta implosion coming! See Predictions.

The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 2: Letter From a Russian Liberal

Please read this in conjunction with:

Thank you, Paul Plane of The Plane Truth show, for providing the letter in question! See my interviews with The Plane Truth.

Paul

An interesting letter from a Russian liberal activist to another after a trip to the Ukraine. Russia could stay out and do nothing, yet this still has catastrophe written all over it. The Russian liberals hate Putin, of course, and want to like Kiev, but the letter talks about what is reality in Odessa and Kiev. It might take till 2016 or 2017 for the flame of hatred to burn out. It seems really strong, again, even if foreign countries did nothing. For one thing, there is the issue of revenge for losing in WWII to the Russians.

Lada Ray

Liberals are just not very smart (but they think they are) and they still run on their old grudge against USSR, while thinking the West is awesome. Why not, that’s where they get all their grants. But not all of them are evil, some are just slow, and still living in 20th century. These will come around.

From Lada:

Below is a letter from a Russian liberal, anti-Putin, pro-West, etc., etc. … He goes to Ukraine and discovers for himself the truth about Ukraine fascism, which apparently turns his entire world upside down. I just can’t stop being amazed at the pseudo-intelligence of the pro-Western neoliberals. No wonder there is such mess in people’s heads everywhere. Neoliberals are those who often control the public opinion in their respective countries; they usually are in the media and in other communications professions, go for elected offices, into law, etc. And they are that blind? The author of this letter is Russian, he is right there, and without a trip he didn’t get what was really happening in Ukraine?

I imagine his fellow liberals are much worse, as at least after a trip, this one saw the light. That said, this is a very telling testimonial as it comes from the most unlikely source!

My readers may not be familiar with the Russian political scene, so let me put this in perspective. Russian liberals are very unpopular (in recent elections something like 1.2% of the electorate supported them) and they continue losing their popularity as more and more people discover their adverse role in the ’90s free-for-all privatization and their advocacy of the predatory ‘capitalism.’ Russians also don’t take kindly to the fact that Russia’s (this concerns all of post-Soviet space) liberals are financed by Western NGO grants, and the fact that their stated goal is to unseat Putin, whose approval rating is very high, around 87-90% – in fact, the highest of any world leader.

Again, not all liberals are the same, but en masse, this is their simplified MO in a nutshell. Some really do think they are Russian patriots, except they don’t like anything or anyone in Russia, being critical of everything around them. Others are openly hateful and don’t even hide that they want to appeal to Western audiences, their goal being the overturn of the present government. Some are more reasonable and some are much worse than I’ve described here. The point is: they are in harsh opposition to the present-day Russia. Before, they could pretend that they were people’s advocates, criticizing mistakes, corruption, shortcoming of the officials, which made some think they were sincere. With the advent of the Ukraine crisis, their siding with the Kiev junta and against the Russian government, including promotion in liberal Russian media (such as Echo Moskvi) of the idea that Russia invaded Ukraine and their support of ukro-nazis, showed their true colors, which didn’t earn them any supporters.

Prediction: liberal influence in Russia will continue waning. That said, a certain amount of dissent is good and necessary in any healthy society. Compare this with Ukraine fascism, where any dissent gets dealt with via bombings, kidnappings and destruction.

To answer Paul’s question: How bad is it in Ukraine? Refer to my Predictions on top bar. I said before that Ukraine will change between 2016 and 2018. Right now, it’s bad and getting worse, as far as fascism goes. Unfortunately, cancer has been allowed to metastasize into all organs of Ukraine’s body. But it’s also correctable. However, this generation of ukro-nazi deadbeats is disturbingly, shockingly cruel and dangerous. That said, these, just like any cowards, are brave only when they have a huge gang around them and when they have to fight with unarmed, peaceful, older people, such as the one on the video in The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy. They are good at bombing civilians in Donbass as well. In other words, true dregs of society.

Unfortunately, during the past 23 years of ‘independence,’ too many such young dregs grew up in Ukraine. Thanks to Soros-sponsored re-written history books, Ukro-MSM hatred propaganda and US/EU (including in large part Poland and Lithuania) supporting the worst of fascism in Ukraine, it has gone out of hand. I hinted on this before and I’ll say it again: eventually, these ukro-nazis will be pushed out of Ukraine and they will move to Europe, and possibly to the N. American continent. The West will have to deal with the monster they created.

This can be finished quite easily and right now: all the US and EU have to do is withdraw support of the Kiev junta and start HELPING to truly investigate all the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed every day in Ukraine! Most of these young ukro-nazi deadbeats will dissolve by themselves once they know their crimes will not go unpunished. However, as we have established so many times previously, the West’s goal instead is to do everything to continue destabilizing Ukraine and to continue enabling crimes against humanity by imparting a feeling of the all-permissiveness on the ukro-nazis.

This is exactly how US and Britain brought Hitler to power. They supported, financed and appeased him – until the monster was created. The rest is history…

The goal of bringing Hitler to power in Germany was to destroy the Soviet Union by his hand. The goal of WWI was to destroy the Russian Empire. The goal of bringing to power this new crop of Ukraine fascists is to destabilize the Russian Federation with the ultimate goal of splitting it up and destroying. Ideology matters not – forget the 20th century ideology. The goal has always been to do away with Russia in any guise. My future Earth Shift Reports will cover this in more depth. Read more in Predictions and other posts on this blog, as well as Interviews.

RUSSIAN OPPOSITION ACTIVIST LETTER: THE TRUTH ABOUT KIEV REGIME

A letter from one Russian liberal opposition activist (Alexey Sakhnin) to another (Alexey Gaskarov), who was arrested for inciting violence and causing harm to police officers during the riots of May 6, 2012 in Moscow, regarding his trip to Ukraine:

———————————————————————————————
“..I asked him, “you have half the city of people who disagree, how will you live with them?” And he says to me, verbatim: “for them, we have a compromise. They sit quietly at home. If they want to talk about the “junta”, they can say a whisper to the toilet bowl. If they go out on the streets, we will start shooting ”
——————————————————————————————–

“Alex, hello, buddy. You know, ever since I got your last letter, I took a trip to Ukraine. Spent there 9 days. And now I have a lot of live experience about how things are arranged over there. I’ll try to tell it without superfluous emotions, though it is difficult.

First, perhaps, Putin’s propaganda in the fight with Ukraine is self-defeating. It is so discredited that many believe the opposite is true. Of course, this does not prevent it from creating an atmosphere of hysteria among the majority, but many activists both in Russia and in Ukraine and in the West perceive it exactly like you: “The truth is exactly the opposite.” Unfortunately, this is not the right approach.

Secondly, you know, the propaganda in Ukraine is even worse. After many years, when the country had relative pluralism, watching what is happening now is very bizzare. Well it is clear – all channels, newspapers and websites inciting a wild national patriotic hysteria. Well, let’s say it is a side effect of war. But what about facts? We visited the editorial office of one of the most moderate websites. The type of people from Lugansk working in Kiev, some former leftists out there involved. They claim to be against torture, kidnappings and so on. But on the wall hangs a large poster on which are written the aims and principles of editorial policy. The first among them “to create a conducive atmosphere for ATO ” (anti-terrorist operation). That means – fueling the war. Accordingly, the facts are selected for publication. All that is conducive for the “atmosphere” — is published without validation. Everything else is simply not published. Forget about the TV box. NTV and Lifenews could learn from them.

Well, propaganda is a military tool. Now about the occupation. I was not in the zone of ATO. Whether Russian troops are there, I don’t know. We were deep in the homefront. In Kiev, Odessa, Kharkov. Alex, I swear to you, what’s happening over there is a civil war. Without any intervention. The internal war. The worst — in Odessa.

7 out of 10 ‘ordinary people’, i.e., taxi drivers, pensioners who rent rooms for visitors, waitresses, passengers of public transport repeat the passwords: ‘junta’, ‘fascists’. I dont have any stats, and in this situation it would be impossible, but it feels like its a majority in the city. And you would not imagine the degree of tension. Typical words of one taxi driver: “We’re just looking forward to when it will be possible to take revenge.”

And, on the other hand, I gets more interesting. We were interviewing the Right Sector (I went there as a Swedish journalist). They are 18-year-old slacker enthusiasts. A complete copy of those who came to the LF in the 2011-2012. The same naive and inexperienced romantics. But they are reading not Kagarlitsky, but Yarosh. And their heroes are Mussolini and Franco. They say “those who don’t like the new Ukraine — suitcase, train station, Russia”. This is a no nonsense fascist organization, which is supplied with green youth in abundance. But it’s not the worst. The worst thing is the moderates.

I’m not saying names, but I have all the interviews. Picture this: a nice office in the centre of the city. At the gates is an armored car. In the courtyard – a bunch of meatheads with machine guns. And the map of Ukraine. They are the ‘community activists’. Collecting money from businesses for patriotic purposes [racketeering]. They have a great system. Enough money and ammunition and their own territorial defence battalion and a bunch of armed guys on call. Think about it — they’re nobody, they have no official status. But they have real power: money, weapons, organization. And no official authority can do anything against them. They are the moderates. “We hate Ukrainian nationalists, they are provocateurs.” But I asked them, “you have half the city of people who disagree, how will you live with them? And he says to me, verbatim: “For them we have a compromise. They sit quietly at home. If they want to talk about the ‘junta’, they say a whisper to the toilet bowl. If they go out on the streets, we will start shooting “.

You know, Alex, but it is real fascism. Without the clowns with swatsikas. And Odessa and other cities have sworms of these guys.

And the capacity of civil dialogue is limited to this: “We’ll shoot.” And they have weapons, money, organization. And it’s not empty threats. They already shot. In broad daylight.

A journalist there told me that about Anti-maidan in Odessa. A crowd of people, of whom 10% really pro-Russian. The remaining – against Maidan, but not against Ukraine. Leaders of the Antimaidan were afraid of drastic measures, were against the seizure of buildings, etc. This journalist said “the authorities were so lucky to have this ‘opposition’ “. But instead they arranged May 2. And May 2 was prepared in advance. Probably no one had planned for such victims, but dispersing the opposition camp was ordered from above in a carefully prepared operation. And this is not Putin’s propaganda.

Now about the crackdown. 78 people in prisons in Odessa are ‘political’. Only in Crimea – about 30 active political immigrants. And repression continues. The guy who we interviewed from former Anti-maidan was arrested 12 hours after we talked. He arrived in the old “Five” (Rusian car Zhiguli), sitting in cafe, scolding the junta, feared nothing. Then drove us to look at the painted with swatsikas statue of Lenin. Then we got into the Kharkiv train, as he drove home. At night he was taken. Arrested by the nazis. The same ones who beat him on May 2. Again beaten with iron rods. Planted with explosives. Now charged with terrorism. From 8 to 15 years. And this is not Putin’s propaganda. This I saw with my own eyes. I was talking with his girlfriend on the phone, trying to calm her down …

I checked on Yandex. Yes, Kharkiv Governor in July stated officially that in Kharkov area for April-June were arrested 314 “separatists”. Just an ordinary news, already outdated. Alex, I understand that from the Russian TV you would like to think that all is exactly the opposite, but it’s true. Heck, it’s just kind of an overwhelming chilling truth.

What about people with Ukrainian flags in Mariupol, you wrote … I don’t know, maybe there are these people in Mariupol. Or maybe it’s the National Guard mobilizing them with assault rifles. Or Akhmetov. I was on the train travelling from Kharkiv with a family from Donbass. The train was going from Yasinovataya, which is closest to Donetsk station. They are afraid to talk. But I pulled some info out of them. They say that the army was shelling each day with artillery and missiles on residential quarters (the gift of that truce). Young guy, says, “Well, I am Ukrainian. But now decided that Ukraine for me does not exist.” Its harsh, Lesha. Scary to ask questions. The people saw things that make you want to cry.

But in Kiev, there’s a patriotic consensus. There, every third is sporting a vishivanka or a t-shirt “death vorogam” (death to enemies). On each wall: “Ukraine above all”, and even drunks who argue for taxi shout “Glory to Ukraine. ” There exactly the national consciousness is ‘in order’. And at the same time all pubs, discos and clubs are open. The horror is less evident.

In short, summarizing, Ukraine remains divided. This is most definitely, no Russian propaganda. At least, the South-East. The intensity is such that any outbreak will lead to civil war everywhere. Without Russian intervention. And it’s excluding the contradictions between the various flanks in the camp of the ‘winners’. Secondly, by its brutality and idiocy Ukrainian regime will give Kremlin a run for its money. For falsity of propaganda, intolerance, repressions. For nationalist populism. This is a very weak regime, which loosely controls its territory, but is torn apart by conflict. But its scary to think what will happen if it gets stonger. And third, the most terrible thing is that the mass movement does not oppose the violence, lawlessness, nationalism, but intensifies it. It’s not calling for greater democracy and pluralism, and negates the social agenda to the nationalistic hysteria. A mass movement under the influence of radicals and those for whom war has become a business. Because of their passivity and lack of experience it is almost completely controlled by the darkest force imaginable. That’s exactly what we have rescued the Russian movement from, retaining its democratic capacity (and at the same time deprived it of support of oligarchs and doomed to be defeated), all the worst that happened to the Ukrainian movement.

This is a grim picture. It turned out to be much worse and intense than I imagined. I don’t know what’s going on in the ‘People’s Republics’. Admit that there might be some things questionable, too. But about the situation in Ukraine, I no longer have any illusions.

That on Russia and the Russian society the whole story with Ukraine has reflected pitifully, I agree. And that propaganda plays its part too. And what to do about it – is not fully clear. But here’s my take on the anti-war campaign. Our liberals seem to do everything to turn this into a failure. Waving flags of the Right Sector. Or prohibit to criticize Kiev regime. In the end, they just turn from supporters of peace to supporters of victory of one of the parties. And therefore very few people will join them. And certainly the credibility of the opposition will not grow.

On the other hand, you know, if you believe Levada, since March the number of people who support the idea of putting troops in Ukraine declined by half. That is propaganda hysterics lost effectiveness. But instead of talking to people about the truth, part of which is absolutely freezer-burn nature of Ukrainian regime, our Liberals fully side with Kiev, reducing the ‘peace movement’ to their eternal mantra about this country.

It seems to me that we must not yield to the temptation “to make friends with all the enemies of our enemies.” We can not take any of the so-called ‘pro-Ukrainian’ position. In fact, it is not a pro-Ukrainian, it’s a pro-fascist position. I think that no matter how difficult, but we have to be a ‘third force’. I understand that for you it is still much harder than me. But I can not be quiet about this)

I wish you as always, courage and mental strength. Write how things are going with your appeal. Is there any hope? What do the lawyers say? Can I help?

In general, hold on!
