Dying Western Neo-Liberalism and EU Revolt against Russian Sanctions

putin-valdai-forum-2016-sochi

In the previous post All Putin Speech/ Q&A videos at Valdai Forum 2016 in Sochi in one place (Eng)  I shared with you Vladimir Putin’s speech and remarks at the Valdai Discussion Forum 2016 in Sochi.

Out of various Putin’s remarks, this is the one that stuck out for me.

The former president of Finland, Tarja Halonen, who on the video (click on All Putin Speech/ Q&A videos at Valdai Forum 2016) sits on Putin’s right (in gray suit), in her speech remarked that the bells of Finland toll for the killed children of Aleppo. Putin’s response: sorry they toll only for Aleppo; what about the killed children of Mosul (LR: Bombed as we speak by the US-led coalition, where the humanitarian catastrophe is horrendous, per reports. And indeed, where was Finland’s compassion when the children of Iraq, Libya, Serbia and Afghanistan were dying under the US and EU bombs? What about all those poor children being killed by US and Saudi strikes in Yemen?)

In other words, the hypocrisy of the Western, blindly double standard, neo-liberal mentality is clearly visible in this example – one of very many. The amazing thing is that Tarja Halonen seriously thinks that she’s saying the right and honorable thing, while the double standards and the blinders on her eyes are glaringly obvious to anyone who has eyes. And the sad thing is that she isn’t the worst kind of Western politician. She actually wants some sort of dialogue and cooperation with Russia, at least from Finland’s economy survival standpoint. She tries to reach out and make some sort of feeble steps towards Russia.

In truth, Finland certainly has a closer and more profitable relationship with Russia than most. Finland was for years a part of the Russian Empire, and it received independence from the hands of Lenin after the 1917 Great October Socialist Revolution, whose 99th anniversary we’ll be marking in a few short days, on November 7, 2016.

A side note about Russian Revolution

Next year we’ll be marking a milestone of 100 years for this important and controversial event, that shook the world and changed the global map in the 20th century. I’ll talk about the TRUE meaning and consequences of both 1917 Russian revolutions next year. You may be shocked to discover a lot of things you never suspected – and it’s NOT what the Western ‘gurus’ who have no idea what they are talking about, tell you. Stay tuned for the REAL TRUTH!

Back to Finland and EU

Finland always profited from its ‘in between’ status. During the Cold War it was used as an intermediary between Russia and the West. Even when Russia’s trade with the West was on the fritz, Finnish agricultural products were in abundance in Russia (I recall that from my childhood).

As to the Tarja Halonen remark, you simply don’t say a silly thing like that to Putin, otherwise you’re just begging to get the answer you deserve. Putin’s too sharp to let the silliness slide. (Same applies to me, incidentally, so be careful.)

The problem is, these poor Western politicians have been put in such straight jacket by their life-time of Manchurian Candidate training and neo-lib brainwashing that even if Tarja Halonen understood that saying what she said makes her a laughing-stock, she’d still be obliged to say it because otherwise she’d get crucified by her Transatlantic bosses and Finnish MSM for not bringing it up. And that could affect adversely her ‘speaking’, ‘consulting’ and book publishing fees, which for Western ex-presidents is a way to get a nice kick-back in return for being good US vassals.

Another recent example of how it gets them in trouble: look what happened with French President Hollande after he wasn’t sure whether he should, or shouldn’t, meet with Putin. Putin cancelled his French visit, following which Hollande received a major backlash from his own electorate and MSM, making him un-electable in next election. I discussed the Hollande gaffe in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 15: PUTIN’S PLUTONIUM ULTIMATUM TO THE US.

Examples of something positive happening in the EU abound! The people are slowly, but surely, awakening, questioning the old paradigms and the usual Western BS. And this is just the beginning.

The signs of the awakening are visible in both US and Europe. We spoke about the US electorate rebellion in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER

Recently, Italy led a revolt in the EU against new Syria anti-Russian sanctions. US/Obama/Biden tried to push the new round of sanctions with all their might for a month. Finally, EU bureaucrats and heads of state gathered to adopt them. The three countries proposing sanctions within the EU were: UK, France an Germany. There was, as they originally announced, every intention to adopt a new round of sanctions.

Suddenly, Italian PM Matteo Renzi vetoed them, supported by several other states (Greece, Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia and Spain – I hope I didn’t miss anyone).

Brexit and UK side note:

Incidentally, notice how tight the post-Brexit UK is with Germany and France. As if nothing happened. The Brexit negotiations have been postponed once, then again. Believe me, they’ll find ways to postpone them once more. Now recall my prediction made in ESR 12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU (BREXIT, TTIP/TPP & EU Revolts). I specifically said that regardless of the referendum result, UK, US and EU will find ways to swindle electorate and postpone the actual UK exit out of the EU. What I predicted was that ‘they’ll make it look as if UK exited EU, but in reality they’ll keep it in for as long as possible.’ I also identified the time frame: at least until after Russian Presidential Elections 2018. If they can, they’ll drag it out longer.

In other words, yet another LADA RAY PREDICTION is coming true!

Those who don’t believe or ‘like’ my ESR16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER PREDICTIONS – I can’t make you. However, as in all those previous instances, just wait and see what happens AFTER! But afterwards, be honest enough to admit I was right – yet again!

Oh yes, just recalled my other prediction:

The revolt against the US will intensify close to US elections; various countries and their leaders will suddenly find the courage they never had – in the period of several months preceding US elections. This is due to the fact that Obama is a lame duck and no real recourse (aka, revenge for disobedience) from US will be forthcoming, plus, due to the Trump phenomenon and the hope that the new president would be different. It’s a certain risk, but it’s still the best time to rebel and try to distance your country from the US, as its grip on its vassals has been the loosest for a long time. As we see, this is indeed what’s happening now. Remember the Philipines Duterte’s rebellion? And now also the EU rebellion.

All this confirms my predicted rickety chair effect type of change, which is a part of the Great Earth Shift. The rickety chair effect and how it works is described in ESR 12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU (BREXIT, TTIP/TPP & EU Revolts) and in ESR9: Atack on Kazakhstan: Who destabilizes Eurasian Union?

Also read: GREAT EARTH SHIFT SYSTEM & RUSSIA AS THE GREAT BALANCER and BREXIT Results and Massive New Global Trends  and TRENDS & PREDICTIONS.

A slow and tedious change – NOT a quick, revolutionary, and relatively easy change – this is the theme for at least the next 3-4 years, possibly until 2021-22. In 2017, I’ll talk about how it’ll really work (NOT how all kinds of Western ‘gurus’ have predicted) and why it won’t be quick and simple.

If you want to hear all this and find out where our common Planet Earth is really heading, in other words, if you are after the REAL TRUTH, REVELATIONS and GENUINE PREDICTIONS, please support and follow me!

Back to today’s topic:

After Italy and others’ revolt, in order to safe face, EU had to say that they really never meant to pass those new sanctions; that there were no definitive proposals from anyone… really.

It helps that Italian business is crying bloody murder due to anti-Russian sanctions. Italy is second only to Germany in its sanctions-related losses. Italian business people have been pushing for the removal of anti-Russian sanctions for over 2 years. Five regional Italian parliaments adopted their own resolutions recognizing Crimea as part of Russia, and began doing brisk business with Crimea, bypassing the EU laws. This effectively means that Italy stands to benefit most after sanctions are off. All the best business deals with Russia will already be theirs when the rest of EU countries finally are allowed by their ‘democratic’ regimes to do business with Russia.

Meanwhile, while EU is suffering the consequences of anti-Russian sanctions through the shrinking bilateral EU-Russia trade, US-Russia trade increased in the past two and a half years, despite the US-initiated sanctions.

EU, however under the US thumb it is, finally grasped a simple fact that in succumbing to US pressure, they got the short end of the stick. The rebellion is brewing. After the Italian revolt, Czech President Miloš Zeman announced that it was time to create a coalition against sanctions and to restore relations with Russia. Speaking to Czech farmers, who are some of the worst affected by sanctions, Zeman generated a storm of applause when he announced that he was ready to spear-head the coalition of EU states against the sanctions and asked other willing EU countries to side with him.

Perhaps, this will become the ‘coalition of the willing’ redefined: a true ‘coalition of the willing’?

EU revolt against anti-Russian sanctions:

anti-russian-sanctions-revolt-merkel-go-home

Yep, the revolt is brewing. The longer these fork-tongued EU bureaucrats and US Manchurian Candidates (Federica Mogherini, Hollande, Merkel, UK elites, Polish US vassals) ignore it, pretending it doesn’t exist, the worse will the outcome for them be.

What is Really Happening in Ukraine? Part 3: Ukraine’s Future

“Every country deserves its government” is a quote attributed to Frederich Nietzsche. How true it is looking at today’s Ukraine.

And here is another thought: “A lot of what is currently happening is not a part of the initial script intended for Ukraine. When you play with fire, be prepared for it to get out of control.” Lada Ray

Russia’s role in Ukraine

So, the billion dollar question is: what is Russia’s role in all this? Russia has been extremely, and surprisingly to some, quiet and restrained on the Ukraine issue. Russia had stressed a few times that EU and US interference is unacceptable. Putin also remarked that joining the EU association agreement is Ukraine’s sovereign decision that has nothing to do with Russia. Compare that with constant interferences by the EU and US in internal affairs of sovereign Ukraine.

Russia also said firmly that should Ukraine sign a free trade agreement with the EU, Russia would cancel its own free trade deal with Ukraine to protect its industry. The moment it has been said, the howling that Russia is putting pressure on poor, defenceless Ukraine, from both sides of the Atlantic became so deafening as if Russia just invaded USA and EU combined.

A bit of history

I have to interrupt my planned #SochiOlympics post on Lada Ray Blog, which will be posted soon, due to the fresh wave of madness enveloping #Ukraine.

I was born in Moscow to a Russian father and Ukrainian mother. In Russia and USSR, mixed marriages were absolutely normal and happened all the time. We all thought we were a part of one great Russian culture – and therefore, there was nothing to divide and nothing to fight about, there was no score to keep… Read the rest of this entry

Vladimir Putin’s Message: Part 2

This is continuation of Post 1 – read it here.

Reposted from Lada Ray Blog:

Someone has told me that they avoid politics on their blog because it invites controversy and confrontation. Couldn’t agree more. That’s why I only post anything geopolitical when I have no choice and when I feel I MUST advise and educate people. And sure enough, the moment I mention Putin and Russia, accusations begin – no surprises.

I care profoundly about peace on our planet. This post isn’t about politics – it is about trying to keep humanity alive and well, and hopefully moving towards a more reasonable future for all. If there is World War III, believe me, no other little opinions, faults or squirmishes would matter. Everyone would be dead equally.

This post is not an invitation for an equal opportunity politician bashing either; it’s not about “Cameron of UK is bad, Obama is bad, but Putin isn’t any better” competition.

Avoiding war is the biggest priority by far on planet Earth right now until we know we have peace. The very least people could do is acknowledge and thank the country that brought peace to the world continuously, including during World War II, and who averted World War III just recently through smart diplomacy. Russia is the only country that can effectively stand up for peace against imperialistic aggression. Putin is the only leader who has the guts and intelligence to stand up to the US war machine and who can win without fighting. In this environment, Russia- and Putin-bashing because “he isn’t a saint” is counterproductive to say the least. In fact, it’s shortsighted and in bad taste. It’s akin to sawing off the tree branch you sit on.

Compare what Russia is doing with what Western governments are up to, like starting multiple wars willy-nilly, citing their “national interests” on the other side of the globe. Comparisons should be pretty clear. But no – the way it stands right now, Russians could be giving out presents to orphans at Christmas and still be made look bad!

Let’s wake up, people, and check out our own backyard!

By the way, a new round of Syria war escalation is being presently started by the US. This time, they try to enlist as many small countries via UN as possible, who are dependent on US handouts, to see if they can restart the war process via UN and via “proving” through UN inspections that Assad – not rebels – used chemical weapons.

Hint: It’s easy to manipulate the UN General Assembly as it’s located on US territory. UN Headquarters are located in New York, USA; US finances most of the UN budget with $$ it prints incessantly, while destroying it’s own currency and exporting inflation to other countries. This strategy works for the time being, but not for long! Lots of handouts and “presents,” as well as intimidation and other pressure is applied to small members, and to European countries + Japan and S. Korea, to get them to vote a specific way. I used to believe in the UN, but UN is no longer a viable international body – sadly.

Russia and Putin may have averted the disaster, but much more work is to be done as the US warmongers are trying to re-escalate the conflict.

Watch these videos:

Gen. Wesley Clark interview in 2007, revealing the old US plan to take out 7 countries, incl. Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran.

And Gen. Wesley Clark interview at 2013 LPAC. Notice how sad and tight-lipped he looks this time.
