Warning! You may be shocked and may not believe your eyes at what you’ll see below. It may even turn your entire perception upside down, but keep reading!
Recently we’ve discussed what the sport has turned into in the past 20 or so years: REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games? In that report, of December 18, 2017, I said ‘Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz‘. There is no fairness and no hope of justice in sport at this time in our common reality. Pretty depressing, right?
For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.
True, there may be different vantage points and different interpretations of various events, and there has always been politics and geopolitics present in any Big sport.
You hear me often talk about multidimensional truths and the fact that we are transitioning into 4D. This means that everything that was a norm in 3D is changing. I would hope though, that things like honesty, honor and common decency will remain. It saddens me greatly that in our day and age these solid old notions have almost been rendered obsolete and useless. But let me assure you, they will always remain crucially important in any dimension and in any reality.
You may not believe it, but there was a time when the Olympic sport was honest, at least it made an effort to be so. And it was at the height of the Cold War.
1972, Munich Summer Olympics. American basketball is the best in the world. In the previous 36 years the US basketball team never lost, and at that moment in history US has won 63 straight games in Olympic competitions. And no wonder. After all, basketball is an original American sport, invented by a US college professor 150 years ago, who tied two fruit baskets in a college court and offered a new sporting competition to his students.
Unexpectedly, the young Soviet basketball team makes it to the Munich Olympic finals, after beating top contenders such as Cuba, to play against the US team. Throughout the game, both USSR and US go neck to neck, at an early point the USSR even being well ahead. After that the USA gains most points back, and again both go head to head. The match is nearly over and the USA is one point ahead, after 2 penalty throws give it 2 extra points. The score is USA 50 — USSR 49. The Soviet coach takes timeout 3 seconds before the end of game.
And then, something crazy begins to happen… Read the rest of this entry
REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games?
As we are approaching Christmas and New Year’s, this is the last major hard-hitting, heavy-duty geopolitical article of 2017, unless something extraordinary happens in the next two weeks! As a matter of fact, I hope this is the last report about geopolitics of sport and Olympics I’ll ever write. Let’s hope, although no guarantees as the pressure on Russia will continue and intensify before Russian elections. All pretexts to exert pressure and undermine elections will be used, and all weak links will be utilized, sport being one of the most prominent such weak links. However, when weak links are exposed to light, this also gives an opportunity to fix problems. Therefore, I hope Russians are paying attention, drawing conclusions and working on solutions. What solutions? Let’s talk about it below!
I’ve packed this piece with extra energy and embedded in it some extra interesting intel! Don’t miss!
THE VICIOUS PATTERN OF OLYMPICS SABOTAGE
Notice something? Every time Olympics, whether Summer or Winter, are conducted in any Anglo-American country, it’s peace and quiet. It took me a while to recall where the 2010 Winter Games took place. Oh, that’s right: Vancouver, CA! The only thing I remember from those Olympics is that nothing, absolutely nothing happened there, except that locals were unhappy with all the money spent by authorities on the Games, rather than local projects. Following that, the 2012 Summer Olympics took place in London. Do you remember any problems, scandals, attacks or sabotage associated with those? Nope, even though there was a lot of prior noise that the Games may be targeted by terrorists. No terrorists were in sight.
The only notable thing about London Olympics was that the UK won 3rd position in team competition, pushing Russia to fourth. UK never was anywhere near 3rd before, so the result was very surprising. But no, obviously they didn’t dope! They never used the ‘home team advantage’ and were never shielded by the bought-and-paid-for WADA. Never!
And now it gets really interesting. Let’s, one by one, go over the Olympics taking place OUTSIDE the Anglo-American, and especially, outside of the ‘Western club’ sphere of influence. Spoiler! Whenever Olympics do happen outside of the Anglo-American world, it’s as if someone pulls a switch and all kinds of disasters befall the host country, or various weird events soil and sabotage the Olympics.
Let’s look at the whole pattern chronologically.
2008 – Beijing Summer Olympics, China, 08/08/08.
The famous start date, 08/08/08, was carefully chosen by the Chinese to be as auspicious and lucky as possible, based on Chinese numerology. Yet, during the ambitious global Olympic torch relay there were unprecedented attacks against the Olympic flame carried by Chinese representatives through major Western cities such as Paris and London.
Just as the spectacular Opening Ceremony — the pride of the Chinese — was unfolding at Beijing Olympic Stadium on August 8, Mikhail Saakashvili and Georgia began a full-scale military assault on tiny breakaway S. Ossetia, killing in the process several Russian peacekeepers. Prior to attack, US Sec of State Condoleezza Rice visited Georgia and gave Saakashvili the green light.
This prompted Russia’s response and the 4-day Russia’s ‘peacekeeping op’ against Georgia, resulting in Abkhazia and S. Ossetia permanently seceding from Georgia. Instead of being focused on the first ever Chinese Olympics, China’s ‘moment of glory’ was soiled by this war. Western MSM talked about Russia’s ‘attack against poor Georgia,’ not about the Games. The West ‘rallied’ and imposed that infamous first set of major ’08 sanctions against Russia, complicated also by the ongoing gas war with Ukraine.
The primary goals for this major provocation were: painting Russia as aggressor in the eyes of the Western sheeple; starting sanctions against Russia; creating animosity between parts of post-Soviet space and Russia; preventing Germany/EU and Russia from coming closer in a mutually beneficial cooperation; plus, as a bonus, attempting to create a rift between China and Russia as a consequence of the Chinese being peeved at the disruption of the Olympics. The latter point completely backfired, but the former have achieved a temporary and partial success. To fix that, the next blow was needed, that of the Kiev Maidan and coup; the pretext used would be that of Sochi Olympics.
2010 — Vancouver Winter Olympics, Canada — nothing to report, total peace and quiet on the western front.
2012 — London Summer Olympics, UK — nothing to report, except a disproportionate number of completely unexpected wins by the UK team (and all Anglo-American teams!) vs. an incredibly large number of equally strange near misses of gold medals by Russian athletes who were favorites. This strange motherload of… ahem… ahem… ‘coincidences’ pushed the UK team to 3rd team placement and pushed Russia out of top 3 into 4th.
THE MOTHERLOAD OF ALL ATTACKS WAS SAVED FOR SOCHI OLYMPICS!
2014 — Sochi Winter Olympics, Russia.
As a private observation I want to say that the organization of the Sochi Games was spectacular, the venue was unique and gorgeous and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies were out of this world. I loved the lavish Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony, but I thought the Sochi Closing Ceremony was the coolest.
Sochi Closing Ceremony — The Sky Ship
Sochi Closing Ceremony — The most heartfelt moment, giant Mishka the Mascot sheds final tear after blowing out the Olympic flame. This was a reminder of the grandfather of the Sochi Mishka, and the famous moment when the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics Mishka shed his tear, before flying into the sky. Per eyewitnesses, everyone at the Luzhniki Olympic stadium cried back then.
Efforts to compromise Russia and disrupt Sochi Olympics:
1. Before the Olympics there was a storm of accusations in Western MSM that Sochi wasn’t ready, complete with falsified and outdated pics and ‘evidence’ from prior years when construction was not yet complete. Of course, Sochi was ready on time and looked resplendent for the Games.
2. Russians were politically careful and even let out of jail the infamous Pussy Riot and the even more infamous Khodorkovsky, so that Western MSM couldn’t spoil Sochi events by howling about human rights violations in Russia. Pussy Riot was immediately swept up by the Clintons and flown to the US; Khodorkovsky was snatched up by Germany, and then settled in Switzerland. Disregarding their release promises, both immediately re-started their anti-Russian activity, aided by their sponsors, but with no success.
3. After Pussy Riot and Khodorkovsky release, they couldn’t find anything else to pin on Russia, so the ‘gay’ non-issue was de-dusted and blown out of proportion, along with Western threats of boycott. (Read my full article on that: How PUTIN views gay people and gay issue? ~COMPLETE MULTIDIMENSIONAL TRUTH!)
4. ALL Western leaders, except a couple of those who came as private citizens, boycotted the Sochi Opening Ceremony, to which they all received invitations. They all made a big political show of that boycott.
5. As Russia went into final preparations for the Games, Ukraine Yanukovich’s EU association trap was laid out and Kiev Maidan was deliberately instigated to begin in late 2013. The Maidan and US/EU pressure on Yanukovich continued escalating as Sochi Games opened in February 2014. As I’d revealed multiple times since the start of this blog in the beginning of 2014 (corroborated by many sources), Kiev Maidan was organized, financed and constantly re-ignited by the collective West (US, EU, etc) for the purpose of weakening and hurting Russia, and for the purpose of making Slavs hate and kill other Slavs.
The timing was chosen deliberately to coincide with Sochi Olympics (as I also explained in 2014) so that:
a. To steal the thunder moment from Russia and spoil the Games
b. Make sure Russia is tied up and cannot respond properly and timely to the Ukraine situation.
The culmination — the February 22 Kiev coup, ousting of Yanukovich and formation of illegal and blood-stained Kiev junta — all this took place in the middle of Sochi Olympics, tying Russia’s hands to do anything about it. The whole country helplessly watched as the closest to Russians people were turned into enemy right in front of their very eyes.
I also predicted at the same time in 2014 that Russia would engage in Ukraine the moment Sochi Games were over in order to save what was possible to save. And that’s what happened: Crimea seceded and re-joined Russia, and Russia began supporting Donbass. See my 2014 articles under Cat. Ukraine.
The Kiev coup, Russophobic ukro-nazis, Western MSM attacks against Russia and subsequent war against Donbass, had foreshadowed Olympics. Despite that, Sochi still managed to become one of the most memorable, exciting and successful international sporting events ever.
But that wasn’t all. Recently, in late 2017, WADA and IOC took away most Russian medals from Sochi Olympics and stripped Team Russia of its 1st place. The new escalation of the ‘Olympic Hybrid World War III’ against Russia has reached a whole new low.
UNDERMINING PUTIN BEFORE ELECTIONS,
UNSPORTING BEHAVIOR BY THE WEST
& LAST ATTEMPT TO SAVE NWO AND GLOBALISM
1. The stripping of the medals from Russian athletes and taking away Team Russia’s first place has to be construed as a vengeance by small-minded dark entities, due to the fact that Russia never bent, nor succumbed to the West’s domination. According to them, Russia was supposed to stay down forever after the devastating ’90s. They can’t forgive Russia for re-building and making strides forward, despite all attempts to break Russia’s back. Most importantly, they can’t forgive Putin for rebuilding Russia and making her stronger.
2. This is a personal attack against Vladimir Putin before Russian Elections 2018. Just like everything they do, it is deliberately timed to immediately precede Russian Elections on March 18, 2018. It is an attempt to divide Russian society and make the part of Russian society favoring sport blame Putin for the situation with Russian athletes, thus costing him votes.
Just watch the months preceding Russian Elections. You’ll clearly see that attempts at undermining Putin and sabotaging Russia will continue growing and accelerating!
I can tell you already that this isn’t going to work. But that’s where the whole viciousness and impossible darkness of the forces who orchestrate these things comes through: they know it probably won’t work, yet they still do it! Some say that these dark Western forces hope that ‘perhaps it’ll work this time,’ but this doesn’t hold water. I don’t buy it. They are not that stupid — evil and disgustingly low, yes; stupid -no.
The actual goal by these dark humans is to exact revenge against Russia, and make Russia and Russians hurt, while they gloat in their filthy caves filled with their ill-gotten riches.
3. This is also a vengeful attack against Russia for winning in Syria and saving that country from disintegration. This is part of their underhanded vengeance for destroying the ISIS/Al Nusra infrastructure and 32,000 prized militants, handpicked, trained and financed by US, EU and Saudis.
Incidentally, the new Russian intel just in. This intel suggests that US is rebuilding the ISIS terrorist army in Syria by saving some prized terrorists and re-branding them by another name.
4. Most importantly, based on her historic and karmic role, Russia the Great Balancer headed by Putin, and together with China and others, in the past 5-6 years succeeded in derailing NWO globalist plans. Russia, in alliance with others, is creating the beginnings of a new world system, countering the old Western-dominant structure. Russia continues slowly and carefully re-balancing the world away from the West, and this is what the West cannot forgive Russia.

SABOTAGE CONTINUES — BRICS UNDER ATTACK
2016 — Rio Summer Olympics, Brazil. These were the first ever Olympics for Brazil and first ever Games in S. America. They were secured for Brazil, the rising economy and along with Russia and China, a fast developing member of the BRICS, by ex-president Lula da Silva. He made a passionate plea to IOC and Brazilians proudly partied through the night when Rio was awarded 2016 Olympics. As Brazil Olympics went into its final preparation phase, a soft color revolution began, resulting in impeachment of president and Lula’s protegé, Dilma Rousseff. This was followed by investigation for corruption of both Lula and Dilma. The result was a pro-US president coming to power in Brazil.
I have a major FREE report on what went on: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions.
Russian and Ukrainian athletes are friends — Rio Olympics 2016 (Russians wear red-blue-and-white uniforms, and Ukrainians light-blue-and-yellow uniforms)
The next round of Rio scandals centered around, what else (!), Russian team. Many of Russian athletes were suddenly banned. Some of these athletes already were en route to Rio, still not sure they would be allowed to compete. The lives of those who were allowed to compete in Rio were made hell, barring their access to training facilities, badgering them with constant tests at all hours of day and night, disrupting their regimes and humiliating them. Some Western athletes in Rio displayed a very unsporting behavior, giving Russians a cold shoulder and refusing to shake hands on the podium, or even mocking them in public.
Russia rented an entire multi-story building for its team in the Olympic village. As a result of bans, 1/3 of the building stood empty. The organizers bullied Russian team into giving up part of the building, thus compromising Russian team’s security and privacy.
Don’t be surprised at all this cynical persecution. After all, The Lord of the Flies was a typical Western book, now being manifested in real life.
THE DIRTY GEOPOLITICS OF TWO KOREAS & OLYMPICS MANIPULATION
S. Korea is more or less within the sphere of the US influence, BUT it is still an Asian country, which has been making strides to become more independent of the US. In order to keep S. Korea in its sphere of influence, US constantly escalates tensions with N. Korea, which then in turn threatens S. Korea with missiles. However, S. Korea really doesn’t want a war with the North. S. Koreans periodically stage rebellions against US, however meek, stating they want to resolve any differences diplomatically.
US perceives N. Korea as an extension of China and Russia. In this sick geopolitical game S. Korea is designated by the US as cannon fodder against N. Korea. Every time S. Korea strays off its prescribed role, US squeezes it to make it toe the line.
And that’s what is happening now. US is using the pretext of Olympics to humiliate and make S. Korea feel unsure of what to expect. The reputation of S. Korea and that of its Games is hanging in the balance. People are already calling PyeongChang Games ‘the worst ever.’ Many have decided to boycott them.
Another thing to take into account is that Russia’s reputation globally, and specifically in Asia, is growing by leaps and bounds, while USA’s is diminishing daily. S. Korea is trying to do business with Russia, also enlisting Russia as primary moderator and peacemaker in the Korean conflict. Additionally, N. Korea expressed on several occasions a belief that they would only trust Russians moderators, should any negotiations take place.
Trump’s constant provocations against N. Korea in the run-up to the Olympics are also designed to promote instability and insecurity during the Games. In this regard, the presence of the Russian team would serve as a guarantee of sorts that N. Korea would not fire missiles to disrupt the event. S. Koreans are convinced that Russian presence would deter such actions by the North. This is the reason S. Korea attempted to convince IOC to lift the Russian team ban.
ANGLO-AMERICANS HAVE USURPED KEY POSITIONS IN WADA AND IOC
Of course it is naive to think this is possible. IOC is over 80% staffed with Anglo-Americans. 17 seats belong to US, 12 belong to Canada, 7 or 8 each – UK and Australia, and a few others belong to various EU countries. China has a few, and entire continents, such as Africa and S. America hardly have one or two. S. Korea has one seat, if memory serves. Russia has none!
The WADA situation is even worse — practically all key positions belong to Anglo-Americans.
Now, didn’t I declare since 2014 that NWO is dead? It is dead or dying in so many ways and so many places. Putin and Russia, as well as other countries, such as China, are working on shifting the world into a different mode.
But as it turns out — not in sport! I usually say that the Big sport is a lagging indicator — it is one of the last to change. Globalists and NWO have been successfully hiding out in sport bureaucracy, IOC, WADA, FIFA and such.
Russians are paying the price for putting the sport on the back burner while dealing with more urgent and serious issues, and for playing by the rules imposed by the West. But even this status quo won’t last forever…
Will Russia the Great Balancer ever say NO? Will Russia act to change the status quo and start alternative Olympics?
RUSSIAN MINISTRY OF DEFENCE DELEGATION IN N. KOREA
Russian MoD delegation has just left N. Korea, trying to agree on some sort of compromise and de-escalate tensions between Trump and Kim Jong-un.
It’s high time for Russia to return to N. Korea! The ties with N. Korea were pretty much severed by the USSR around 1970s, when there was a disagreement between Communist Parties — N. Koreans thought Russian communists were getting too soft and too westernized (oh, the irony!).
Russia’s return to N. Korea, signified by MoD’s visit, has been pre-empted by the Russian Duma delegation’s recent visit to Pyongyang, during which Koreans reportedly conveyed that they only trusted Russia as partner and peace moderator (note — not China, N. Korea’s closest ally!).
A suggestion that N. Korea may have invited Russia to open a military base is a reasonable one. I think this would do a lot to rebalance and stabilize the region. This would also be a guarantee from a US attack against N. Korea. Even the mere talk of opening such a base will ensure that US will be careful not to attack N. Korea. (See: ‘Mars Attacks’ in Reverse! New joke about Russia, US, Putin, Trump and Mars).
This increased political and military activity by Russia in N. Korea, in view of USA’s threats and Russian athletes’ bans, is certainly not a coincidence.
The important thing to understand is that the enemies in the region: N. Korea and S. Korea, plus Japan, all want Russia to engage, correctly assuming that US is there only to provoke war, and Russia is there to resolve the problem and promote peace, as was proven by Syria (Putin Makes Surprise Visit to Syria in the Company of Su-30 Jets to Declare Victory and the End of Op).
S. Korea wants Russia to engage and, despite being afraid of the US, it has been making some meek steps to secure Russia’s benevolence by attempting to help re-instate Russian athletes and invite Vladimir Putin to the Olympics. I can tell you with absolute certainty that Putin of course won’t go, but maybe, just maybe, he will send someone in his stead as a gesture of good will. In this regard, note also that IOC banned Russian officials of any sort from attending the Olympics, so any invitation of Russian officials would be the host country stepping over IOC decision. I don’t know if S. Korea is brave enough to show that middle finger to Anglo-Americans.
LIST OF SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA & RUSSIAN ATHLETES
IOC ruled that Russia as a country is banned from S. Korean Olympics. Russian anthem, flag and any Russian symbols are all banned. This is a clear attack against the Russian State. It is also an ugly attempt to humiliate every Russian, no matter where he/she lives.
Russian athletes won’t be able to wear their country’s uniforms made for this occasion, and have to wear… actually, no one knowns what they’ll wear. If they win, they will have to listen to some Olympic anthem no one knows and compete under the white flag.
Athletes who may be able to compete are only those who were NOT at Sochi Olympics, which means younger and less experienced athletes. But it’s still case-by-case. Each of them will have to go through a rigorous commission and elimination process to prove that they are ‘clean.’
In other words, the West has become a brutal machine of suppression. What human rights? They now practice presumption of guilt and collective punishment for individual and unproven infractions.
Another thing I anticipate is that the lives of these poor athletes will be made hell during the Games, yet again. This already happened during Rio 2016 and during last athletic world championship. They will be woken at night before competitions for constant doping tests; they won’t be allowed to practice in peace and kept in a nervous state at all times.
The devilish plan here is to dislodge and disorient these inexperienced young people to such a degree that they would lose. Then IOC and WADA will be able to say — see, we knew it, Russians are unable to compete without doping.
Russian team is banned from participating in the opening ceremony. There is no team — each of them is supposed to be there as an individual, and they all will be referred to as ‘athletes from Russia.’
All Russian officials who usually go to the Games to cheer and support athletes, are also banned from being present at the Olympics. Russian sports minister Mutko has been banned for life. Russian Olympic Committee chair Zhukov has been expelled from IOC.
IF all these humiliating conditions by IOC and WADA are fulfilled and all Russian athletes ‘are proven clean’ throughout the Games by the IOC and WADA gestapo, then MAYBE Russians can participate in the closing ceremony under Russian flag — if said gestapo feels benevolent enough. Not only I doubt it would happen, but even if it does, I feel this is adding insult to injury.
WHY ARE RUSSIANS STILL GOING TO S. KOREA OLYMPICS?
Despite all this, the meeting of Russians Olympians unanimously decided that they wanted to go and compete.
This followed the announcement of Vladimir Putin that Russia will not boycott the Games and that athletes should decide for themselves if they are going or not. The latest I’ve heard is that Russians are hoping about 200 athletes will be allowed to compete.
Why did Putin take such stance?
This was the only reasonable thing for Putin to do. If Russia announced the official boycott of the Olympics, this would have created descent on the part of some Olympians. If such Olympians were to defect so they could still compete, a big political scandal would be blown up and the West would be happy to snatch up those ‘political martyrs’ for their purposes. Putin yet again would be branded ‘tyrant’ and ‘dictator,’ as I am hearing from some American and EU trolls whom I periodically have to ban on my blog. This could cost Putin votes and create tension in Russian society as such athletes would also have unhappy coaches, teammates, parents, friends and thousands of fans.
By allowing athletes to take responsibility for their own decisions, Putin minimized the damage.
Still it’s important to understand that Putin was deliberately put in an awkward position before elections, where no good solution could be found. Either solution has a significant downside. By allowing Russian athletes to compete, a significant part of Russian society that feels Olympics should be boycotted by Russia, was made unhappy.
In this situation every person must make individual decisions. I can tell you for sure I personally will be boycotting these Olympics and any future Olympics thereafter. But I’ll happily watch the renewed Good Will Games or any similar international events organized by Russia.
Why did the US suddenly announce that Team USA may not be going to S. Korea?
I believe this was yet another attempt to play S. Korea. It was sort of veiled threat that unless S. Korea toes the line, US will basically cancel the Games. I also detect a certain behind-the-scenes manipulation of IOC there. Moreover, this was an additional attempt — not a very bright one — at provoking N. Korea. It has to be understood that it was indeed an idle threat, which will go no further. Of course the US team will be going to S. Korea, barring some totally catastrophic events, which so far I don’t foresee.
When will Russia finally understand she cannot win when all odds are against her? When, if ever, will Russia organize alternative games?
I predicted this in my 2015-16 articles about Rio Olympics ban and Russian doping scandal. Russia and Putin won’t do anything before March 2018 Elections. After elections are over, and after Russia goes through the ordeal of hosting the 2018 World Cup, only then Russia can think about alternative Games. And that work will take years to figure out and organize. The USSR’s Good Will Games would be a great experience to draw on.
My personal opinion has always been that Russia needs to forget about Olympics and Western-dominated sports, and begin alternative sports competitions ASAP. In my opinion, Russia is wasting time. However, there are geopolitical realities and pressures some are unwilling to deal with, until it gets really bad. Only then Russia responds.
I can only say so much within the limited scope of this one report. However, I had previously touched on many other important and related issues. I strongly recommend you read my past articles on the topic, which would give you the complete picture and solid understanding:
Hybrid War: Whole Truth About Doping and Demands to Ban Russia from #RioOlympics ~ this report from 2015 explained everything!
See all my prior articles in CATEGORY Geopolitics of Sport & Olympics
To finalize this report, I want to tell you about a new sabotage planned by WADA and the collective West, call it Dark State (my definition), deep state, globalists or NWO. By any name, the essence remains the same.
What is happening with Football World Cup 2018? Can Russian football team be banned from competing at 2018 World Cup, while Russia is hosting the event? Will WADA force through the ultimate humiliation?
I always thought that the pride and prestige of getting to host Olympics or World Cup wasn’t worth the trouble. Big sport was always used for geopolitical gain, but lately, when one faction (the West) has gained complete control of all sports institutions, it has become a tool of ultimate globalist manipulation.
In addition, all of the Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz. Athletes are in it for future endorsements and lavish payouts, big pharma makes a killing on it, multinationals buy advertisement slots worth billions, and MSM makes a big show out of it. The Olympics business is worth $400 bln and World Cup is worth even more!
I knew from the start Russia would be targeted for humiliation if it hosted World Cup, and especially, so close to Russian Elections. Every time a country hosts a major sporting event, it makes itself vulnerable to hybrid 4D warfare, arm-twisting and ultimate manipulation. In fact, the county host is normally held hostage to the event, as I have illustrated above.
In prior years several attempts have been made to take World Cup away from Russia by trying to play the ‘Russia bribed FIFA’ card. That provocation failed completely, as it was proven that it was in fact Qatar who bribed FIFA, not Russia. But since Qatar is in bed with the US, no one tried to take next World Cup from Qatar. As a revenge for failed Russia-thrashing, FIFA chairman and all top officials were ousted with a big scandal, and one went to jail. But even the new, completely subservient to the globalists FIFA has failed to do anything about taking World Cup 2018 away from Russia.
Failing that, they switched their attentions to Russian football team, trying to implicate it in doping through WADA. If Russian football (soccer) team is banned from participating in the World Cup hosted by Russia, that would be a first, and very humiliating for the host country. That’s what this is aimed at.
Just like in the above Olympics case, the target here, first and foremost, is Vladimir Putin. The goal is to put Putin in an awkward position and make some of his election base hate him for depriving them from enjoying the Russian team play.
I have to also say that Russian football team is normally not much of a contender and they usually play weakly. They are not expected to win much and it’s hard to imagine them doping if they play so poorly. But that’s the thing. Those who plan these attacks don’t even care if what they do holds no water. They just want to weaken Putin before elections and make Russians feel humiliated. If they damage their allied countries or destroy the international sports along the way — they don’t care. In other words, the hell with the rest of the world.
Bottom line, there is a massive conspiracy and ganging up against Russia in sports.
The silver lining is that this will force Russia to eventually act. It will take some time, but eventually Russia the Great Balancer will rally and begin the necessary SHIFT in sport, just like it is doing so in other areas of international life. Eventually, WADA, IOC, FIFA, World Cup and Big sport will have to change. If they refuse to change, they will die off.

Dear friends and followers,
I am so excited to introduce my upcoming major event:
EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6
This powerful webinar is the culmination of Lada Ray’s Multidimensional Geopolitics Series.
RELEASE: NOVEMBER 6, 2017!
THE PUTIN ENIGMA goes on sale on November 6 (no pre-orders)
THE PUTIN ENIGMA SUMMARY & DESCRIPTION
Hold on to your seat, as you are guaranteed to hear brand new revelations and make fascinating discoveries! I promise, you’ll experience those ‘Aha!’ moments and finally put the two and two together!
Well beyond the obvious, and well beyond sensationalist conspiracy theories,
Putin’s TRUE multidimensional origins and his REAL role during this Great Earth Shift revealed!
Who is really Vladimir Putin? Why does he continue being mega-popular around the world, despite many years of character assassination attacks? Why is Putin’s rating so high and why is he beloved by so many Russians? How and why does he manage to garnish so much support from elites and ordinary citizens alike? Why, no matter what Putin does, he ends up the winner?
The enigma of Putin’s name explained!
Multidimensional image: Why does Putin look the way he does — face reading, height, sports and charisma
What does Medvedev’s appearance and his posture says about him?
Why, no matter how much pressure he receives, Putin doesn’t fire Medvedev?
Why is Medvedev always near Putin one way or another?
LADA RAY PREDICTIONS:
Will Putin run for reelection in 2018? If he does, when will he announce his candidacy?
What to expect in the next 6 years for Russia and world?
Reincarnations, past lives, karma and destiny!
What does PUTIN’s name really mean and how does it resonate with Russia’s destiny?
Do you want to know who really is Dmitry Medvedev? I can promise you that his true origin is as much of an enigma as Putin’s, and his role is rather important and rather fixed in this space-time continuum. In contrast to Putin, Medvedev is almost universally disliked in Russia, on both sides of the political spectrum. However, Medvedev represents something very important, and he hasn’t gotten to the top by accident!
Prepare for your eyes to pop when I tell you how his role in today’s Russia is intrinsically connected to what happened 100+ years ago, during WWI and 1917 Russian Revolution, and how the last Russian Emperor Nikolay II and Grigory Rasputin come into play!
How does the 1917 Russian Revolution relate to what is happening now in Russia and around the world? What was the real role of the USSR and who really was Lenin and Stalin? Was the USSR supposed to disintegrate and how Gorbachev and Yeltsin come into play. What happened in 1999 and how Putin became president.
How is Russia’s role as the Great Balancer affected by karma and previous millennia of forbidden history? How is it affected by what happened 100 years ago, in 1917?
In this webinar you’ll learn about the Destiny of Russia, past lives, reincarnations, powerful multidimensional Earth Shifter oversouls, Earth Keepers and Protectors. You will also learn about the new hope and new timeline for Russia and humanity!
I’ll reveal to you information from the cosmic Akashic Records.
This webinar includes some crucial for your understanding quantum calibrations and interpretations for Putin, Medvedev, Shoigu, Lavrov, Maria Zakharova, Lenin, Stalin, Gorbachev and Yeltsin.
Coming in November 2017!

My deepest condolences to the city of St. Petersburg and all victims of the Sennaya Ploschad Station Metro Bombing!
The most important thing to understand is that this is NOT a coincidence! The immediate ‘verdict’ on the Internet and SM has been that’s it’s ISIS. But let’s look at the facts!
The facts are a stubborn thing. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Putin – Lukashenko St. Petersburg meeting and St. Pete Metro bombing are two links of the same chain!
And here’s the chain in question:
1. An ISIS terrorist would stick out like sore thumb in St. Petersburg. But ukro-nazis or SBU operatives from Kiev or Western Ukraine would blend right in. SBU is Ukraine intelligence, which has been trained, supervised and financed by CIA since at least 2014.
Since Putin has outplayed the Kiev junta on so many fronts, it is a lot more plausible that this is what happened. And it hits so much closer to home.
2. Multiple terror plots and subversive groups from Ukraine have been neutralized in Russia, including Crimea, Moscow and other regions, in 2016 and 2017.
One terror act unfortunately succeeded: the downing of TU-154 near Sochi, when all on board died, including 68 artists from the famed Alexandrov Red Army Choir and famous humanitarian Dr. Liza.
Certainly, there is also an escalation of Islamist terror activity in Chechnya and N. Caucasus. However, all of these events are related.
Related to the Russian terror plots are also the killings of LDPR commanders and leaders in 2016-17.
3. Russian ‘anti-corruption’ protests headed by Navalny took place just a week ago, the previous Sunday. One day prior to that, on Saturday, similar protests, with very similar slogans, took place in Belarus. Although organizers (often hidden) pretended that it was all spontaneous and unrelated to each other, there are very clear signs of coordination across borders. No doubt Russian and Belorussian protests were coordinated.
What is interesting is the incredibly high level of sophistication in the protests organization. The grounds were prepared for at least months prior. Lukashenko’s mistakes were skillfully used in Belarus. In Russia the dislike of PM Medvedev was equally skillfully used. The story of his supposed billions and Tuscany vineyards was invented and made into a documentary by Navalny, making sure it went viral on social media. Social media was in a very sophisticated way used to appeal to the young crowd and to entice young people to come out by the promise of big bucks and mischief with no repercussions.
To organize all this someone had to work for at least months, possibly longer. Most importantly, someone had to shell out quite a bit of cash, because protests and color revolutions don’t come cheap.
Participants of the Russian protests, very young people, some of whom were barely 16-17 years of age, were caught on camera (video was posted on YT) sharing how they must make sure they get arrested during the Sunday protest because those who get arrested will get $10 thousand Euros, plus legal help and possible trips to the West.
Other young delinquents were caught on camera having this dialogue:
‘Coming tomorrow to the protest?’
‘What’s it about?’
‘No idea, but it’s an opportunity to beat up cops.’
Who promised them this kind of payday for causing trouble? The usual suspects: Soros, Clinton Foundation, CIA. I would also include here UK, Poland, Germany and Brussels/EU. In what configuration – that’s a separate discussion. It’s roughly the same entities who have financed other color revolutions and mayhem globally.
The name of ex-oligarch Khodorkovsky has also surfaced in connection with the organization of these ‘protests’ (see this post’s comment section for intel from Nemo!). Khodorkovsky, of course, is a long-standing client of the CIA. I have followed Khodorkovsky for a long time, and as many of you know, he served as prototype for the character of the oligarch Konukovsky in my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. As I see it, Khodorkovsky lately also became a client of the CIA’s secret EU leg: the German intelligence (let’s be honest, that’s what the German intelligence has turned into).
4. Recent Eurovision scandal was supposed to be a humiliation for Russia, but it backfired. Kiev banned Russian participant Yulia Samoylova’s entry into the country, thus illegally banning her from participation in the Kiev Eurovision 2017. The scandal took a humiliating turn against Kiev: in response contest organizers threatened to ban Ukrainian participant from the contest taking place on her native soil, and possibly even moving the contest to another country.
Recent killing of ex-Russian Duma Deputy Voronenkov in Kiev is a provocation also directly related to all other events described here.
5. During 2016-2017 in Russia we have seen a large number of terror groups – some related to IS and Islamist terror cells and others related to Kiev – being apprehended. These are shown on Russian news almost weekly. Many terror acts were prevented. All in all, the actions of FSB have so far proven effective.
6. In the run-up to Belarus protests multiple terror plots and various wannabe terrorists were apprehended in Minsk and on the border. One of the attempted terror plots was almost bizarre: a Jeep carrying ingredients to mak explosives tried to break through the border from Ukrainian side. The Jeep was chased by law enforcement, but it managed to get pretty deep into Belorussian territory before most people inside were apprehended. One person managed to escape. How dangerous was the one who escaped? Were the others just patsies, meant to divert attention, while the only important person went free? What kind of explosives escaped with him and what was his ultimate destination?
The border between Russia and Belarus is very transparent. Recently Lukashenko announced a visa-free regime for 80 countries, without coordinating with Russia. This silly decision was a big part of the recent spat between Russia and Belarus.
Clearly, Belarus isn’t a high-profile target, but its value is in it being an inside track into Russia. Between Russia and Belarus there is no border; therefore, it is very easy for a determined terrorist group to infiltrate through Belarus.
7. Lukashenko blinks: Belarus has become a weak link in Eurasian stability and security system when Lukashenko recently initiated a conflict with Russia regarding power and gas pricing and sought to blackmail Russia by suggesting Belarus would re-orient towards the West and Middle East, distancing itself from Russia.
My diagnosis is that it’s largely a bluff by the starved for attention Lukashenko, who wants preferential treatment and who wants to milk Russia as much as possible. There is also a significant economic component in Lukashenko’s outburst: Belarus is cash poor and debt ridden and in need of a postponement of debt repayment. All this, coupled with the worsening economic situation and approaching elections makes Lukashenko nervous. After all, the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle’ was achieved on the account of Russia sharing practically free gas and other privileges with Belarus. Recently Russia began demanding that Lukashenko pays for at least some of the gas.
At the same time, I do not see Belarus drifting towards Ukraine scenario and Kiev-style Maidan any time soon, as I explained and predicted in ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO? (WITH BONUS: LUKASHENKO’S BLUFF).
Regarding Lukashenko: his act gets old and tiring. He will paint himself into a corner soon. His days as president may be numbered. But the geo-chess master acts on his own time and when no one is expecting it. Putin’s move will come, but only when he’s ready.
More predictions on the future of Belarus and Lukashenko in my future book, THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
8. Russian Presidential Election cycle has begun. Everything that’s happening is a rehearsal and preparation in order to see if Russia can be destabilized enough to prevent Putin’s re-election. But they know it’s a very tall order. Therefore, the goal is at least to bring him into the next term as weakened as possible, with maximum number of discontented citizens. If Russia and Putin blink (which won’t happen) they also hope to begin a real color revolution and civil war in Russia, turn one half of the population against another, like in Ukraine, and destroy everything that has been re-built between 2000 and now. But as I said, this won’t happen.
This is a very old tried-and-true technique of divide and conquer, character assassination and sabotage. It was previously reserved for Russia, the arch-enemy of the West, and those countries the West wanted to subdue. But today, we are experiencing the Great Earth Shift when the old matrix is dissolving and the shoots of the new are trying to get through the concrete.
Today this technique is used just as much in the West by the same neo-liberal globalist cabal against those who do not toe the agenda. Examples are anti-globalists such as Trump in the US and French presidential candidates Marine Le Pen and François Fillon, who are being openly sabotaged. More in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER.
WHY PUTIN – LUKASHENKO MEETING IN ST. PETERSBURG COINCIDED WITH METRO BOMBING:
Putin meets with Lukashenko in St. Petersburg, 4/3/17:
By provoking multiple loud public scandals with Russia regarding gas and oil pricing, diminished oil quotas, loan repayments and open border dispute Lukashenko and his advisors were banking on the fact that Russia already has a huge problem with Ukraine. Therefore, they reasoned, Russia would not risk escalating this argument with Belarus, fearing a loss of an important partner. This calculation was naive at best, which was quickly demonstrated by the following events. Life promptly showed Lukashenko what happens when Russia withdraws support.
To be sure, both Russia and Belarus lose when they argue. The problem is Belarus and Lukashenko personally lose a lot more.
A similar scenario occurred to Turkey and Erdogan after the downing of the Russian Su-24 and Russia’s subsequent withdrawal of Erdogan’s support and all business with Turkey. Within the short several months, this weakened Turkey to such degree that Erdogan almost lost his life in the military coup and much of the Turkish economy dried up. For detailed analysis and predictions read ESR 13: ERDOGAN’S WAR.
Having gone too far in his spat with Russia, and also having made some serious mistakes internally, Lukashenko now has seen how shaky his position would be without the support of Russia. After Putin and Medvedev’s cold shoulder, after Belarus protests and a threat of being expelled from Eurasian Union, he had to quickly backtrack, humble down and sit down to talk with Putin.
The meeting place: St. Petersburg. The meeting time: Monday, April 3, 2017.
It is clear to me that a great deal of manipulation has gone into convincing Lukashenko to act as a provocateur in Russian-Belorussian relations. Also, a great deal of effort and international coordination went into organizing the aforementioned Russian and Belorussian protests. Much of YouTube, Twitter and various other SM outlets were deeply involved.
Specifically in Russia the average age of participants is highly suspect. What comes to mind when a crowd of 16-17 years-olds marches through Moscow center, stopping traffic and picking fights with cops, while chanting, ‘Putin (or Medvedev), where is our money?’ (This was an actual slogan of the Russian protests, as seen on TV. Others were even more silly and bizarre, some reminding painfully of the Kiev coup and Ukrainian Euro-Maidan.)
‘Putin (or Medvedev), where is our money?’ Greed is a determining factor. Whose money are they really after? Who really pays?
Make no mistake, no matter who sits in the White House or calls the shots in the EU, billions continue being spent on subverting the vulnerable among the young generations of Russians and Belarussians. After all, it seems to have worked in Ukraine; they hope it’ll work in Russia and Belarus.
These billions are being spent by the same parties as before, and in this regard, absolutely nothing has changed. These are same sources that subverted Ukraine, and that attempted unsuccessful color revolutions in Armenia and Kazakhstan. (See ESR9: ATTACK ON KAZAKHSTAN & Armenia).
This is pre-election year in Belarus. More importantly, this is pre-election year in Russia. The activation of destabilization attempts will continue.
The original grand plan, conceived many years ago, but implemented throughout the 90’s and 2000’s was to break apart Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. Part of the plant pertaining to Ukraine nearly succeeded due to Kiev Maidan.
But it proved much harder to break up Russia and Belarus. Yet even this could have succeeded due to Lukashenko’s mistakes. After Lukashenko’s public tantrum and threats to turn away from Russia towards the West, it was assumed that the breakup was underway. And it would have been, if not for Putin.
The attempt to break apart Russia and Belarus has a clear ultimate goal to weaken and disorient The Great Balancer. Russia, The Great Balancer, is presently rebalancing the severely lopsided world towards a better balance between physical/material/personal/self-serving energy on one hand and spiritual/collective/service-to-others energy on another. This is an attempt to stop this rebalancing, or at the very least, to slow it down.
Who benefits? Very simply: the collective West, the old neo-liberal globalist bankster, pero-dollar dominated system that made the West at large rich at the expense of others. To be sure, there are many new and healthy shoots in the West. They will eventually come through and bear fruit, but for now the old is still stronger.
Belarus is playing a very important role in the work of The Great Balancer; it is a part of the Great Balancer structure. Russia is weaker without Belarus, but Belarus cannot survive without Russia.
Has Lukashenko finally got it? After all elaborate and sophisticated preparations, after all indications that a rift between Russia and Belarus is taking place, suddenly, Lukashenko backpedals and Putin meets him in St. Petersburg. They announce that energy and border control disputes are being successfully resolved.
The terror act preceding or coinciding with this kind of meeting signifies a warning. This is a message for Putin, and by association, for Lukashenko. It is a threat issued to Russia, Belarus, and their leaders.
Make no mistake, a response will follow.
Incidentally, during the St. Pete meeting Putin said an interesting thing: Russia and Belarus are preparing a unified energy grid. This ultimately means that the two countries are getting closer, NOT further apart. This is the beginning of Putin’s response.
The game is afoot.

Year 2012 Predictions
What qualifies me to predict the future? In the past decade, I taught a number of my proprietary Feng Shui courses and did lots of consultations, in addition to writing about Feng Shui and spirituality for various publications around the world. As part of my speaking and writing, I made predictions about certain events in society and our lives, as well as advised clients on various real estate and investment-related matters.
My various predictions usually came true. As a quick example, I sold my own real estate property in 2005 – at the top – and advised my clients to do the same. Those, who followed my advice, cashed in very nicely. To find out more about me, check out my bio.
My predictive methodology is complex and consists of several parts.
- As a former financial consultant with Smith Barney (Citigroup,) I understand the market movements.
- Having lived in various countries, under various social systems, including socialism and capitalism, and having observed and studied the geopolitical mechanisms that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as those in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America, I understand the driving forces in the world today.
- I also draw on Western Astrology, which, together with other predictive methods, is a great tool.
- Feng Shui, especially the Theory of Five Elements, along with Chinese Astrology, is also helpful.
- An important element in my predictions is the powerful Oriental System of Long Cycles, very little known, and even less understood today. Feng Shui, in its most profound and true manifestation, shares the same philosophy. I studied this system with revered Hong Kong Masters of Feng Shui. Since space in a blog post is limited, I intend to talk more about it in the upcoming BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.
- Last, but not least: While I do not consider myself psychic, although some may beg to differ, in my predictions, I rely heavily on my intuition, which has never let me down.
Without further ado, let’s get to the core of the issue. The Year 2012 is theYear of the Dragon, according to the Chinese system, and it also has been called the Year of Elections. So, what does this year hold in store for us all?
First, something that has been done to death (no pun intended) in books and film: Should we expect the End of the World on 12/21/12?
The short answer is – ABSOLUTELY NOT! The above date, when Earth forms a direct line with the Galactic Center, will be a non-event and will go absolutely unnoticed by most humans. Some may feel more emotional and high strung, but it could be because these people are feeling the nervousness of others around them. However, the world will keep spinning, and life on Earth will go on.
The long answer is more complex. There are very powerful, LONG TERM changes at work. Those of us who are currently involved with, say, Indie Publishing, or Social Media, and some other areas, are actually at the forefront of these changes.
Suffice it to say that humanity is going through a massive transformation of consciousness, which will last for the foreseeable future, and at times, may be painful and confusing.
But these changes are gradual, although some manifestations are visible in cataclysms and events of today. Examples include: Japanese tsunami and Fukushima disaster, Gulf of Mexico oils spill, the Occupy Movement, Egypt Revolution, US/Europe Economic Problems, The BRICS, Kindle and Indie Publishing Revolution and many others.
Please read more about these events and changes in my upcoming books: THE EARTH SHIFTER (a fantasy/thriller) and BOOK OF PREDICTIONS (non-fiction.)
For more about my books, please visit: LadaRay.com
Year of the Dragon is considered one of the most powerful years for business and innovation. It ushers in more Yang – aggressive, assertive – energy, than almost any other year in the 12-year Chinese Zodiac cycle. Therefore, this year we should expect new developments in various revolutionary and alternative technologies. By the way, fellow Indie authors, this could be the year for you!
In general, starting your business is considered especially auspicious during the Year of the Dragon. This year will also be good for anything alternative.
On the other hand, the Year of the Dragon could signify more turmoil in both social and political spheres, as well as in nature. Sorry to say, natural, as well as man-made disasters won’t subside.
Read more about the powerful Dragon in my tomorrow’s post, right here, on Lada Ray Blog!
2012 is called THE YEAR of ELECTIONS, with something like 40 countries going to the polls to elect new Heads of State. This includes the big three: Russia, USA and France.
My friends will tell you that I could talk for hours about geopolitics, but due to the confines of the blog space, I’ll be brief and discuss the big three. Also, just to mention, I am a ‘political atheist’ and do not participate in any political party. My analysis is based on logic, facts, intuition, Chinese Astrology and Theory of Long Cycles.
I will go with plus 2, minus 1.
RUSSIA, Presidential Elections, March 4, 2012: Vladimir Putin will win easily enough, although, due to the crowded field and according to the Russian electoral rules, he may only get clear majority in the second round. Protests on part of the Communists and assorted opposition will continue, and electoral fraud will be alleged again, whether it took place, or not.
However, between now and March, Putin and the ruling United Russia Party will make all the right moves, and Putin will end up securing anywhere between 55 – 68% of the votes. 55% may be way too low. Low to mid 60s is probably the right percentage.
While Russians could afford to play around with the results of the Duma elections in 2011, they’ll treat Presidential Elections much more seriously. Putin means stability, and everyone will remember that. Russian social, economic, political, financial, police and army reforms will continue in a controlled fashion during Putin’s Presidency. I will try to discuss Russia’s future in detail in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS.
There is one more, esoteric, reason for Putin’s win: He is a DRAGON, according to his Chinese Zodiac sign. 2012 will be much better for Putin, than 2011, as the power of the Dragon is fully behind him this year!
USA, Presidential Elections, November 6, 2012: Republicans will pick Romney, who is perceived as the man of the middle, and therefore, appears a safe bet. And Romney will NOT beat Obama. Because, as one rapper said, speaking at Occupy Wall Street, “Obama is ten times the campaigner, as he is the President.” The rapper, whose name I won’t mention here, added, “And I mean it as a compliment, Mr. President!”
In short, USA will remain sharply divided along partisan lines. Obama will narrowly win another 4-year term.
Meanwhile, various protests will continue and intensify. Emergence of a third party is very possible, fueled with disillusionment with the establishment and election results.
What happens during Obama’s second term is another story altogether, and I’ll discuss it later in my BOOK OF PREDICTIONS, as well.
Ah, yes, in case anyone’s wondering, Barack Obama’s Chinese Zodiac sign is the OX, considered along with the Dragon, one of the most powerful signs. Obama is in good company here, as the Ox is the sign of a world leader and can also be rather charismatic. He shares it, infamously, with Saddam Hussein. But also, with Margaret Thatcher, Princess Diana and Jane Fonda.
France, Presidential Elections, April 22-May 6, 2012: French President Nicolas Sarkozy, together with Angela Merkel of Germany (whose re-election is not until 2013, and I’ll talk about her chances on another occasion) will do everything in their power to reassure the Europeans and the markets in 2012, and will pull a rabbit out of the hat, if necessary. Watch for various announcements from the Eurozone, directed at flooding the system with cheap money, more bailouts, etc.
However, the Eurozone crisis will deepen, with more countries teetering on the brink of collapse, and French elections will happen at the most inopportune time for Sarkozy. Openly right wing and considered the only neo-con, able to win the election, he’s deeply disliked in his country, and will lose.
Again, in case anyone’s wondering, Sarkozy’s sign is the HORSE. Maybe, that’s why the long face. Just kidding, all you, fabulous Horses, out there! The Horse is a very cool and fortunate sign!
Wishing you a terrific and auspicious Year of the Dragon! Please like and comment to let me know what you think about my predictions!
P.S. On 1/13/12, only two days after I posted my prediction about Sarkozy losing the French elections, S&P downgraded French debt, stripping it of it’s coveted AAA rating. France was downgraded along with 8 other Eurozone countries. This move, as analysts unanimously agree, spells disaster for Sarkozy in the upcoming elections. And it also signals that the Eurozone problems are bound to intensify this year.
Russia and France voted exactly as I originally predicted on 1/11/12, GOP nominated Romney, and there are clearly 3rd parties emerging in the USA. Two Third Party Presidential debates are being hosted by Larry King and aired by RT America (First debate took place several days ago and is available on Youtube; second – foreign policy – debate will air and be posted on Youtube on 10/30).
Upcoming US Presidential Elections: no change from the original 1/11/12 prediction! Obama wins narrowly, with less than 5%, possibly less than 3% advantage.
It is interesting to note that, while in the USA the vote will be very close, abroad it’s not even a contest. Based on multiple surveys and polls from over 20 countries, Romney gets more support only in Pakistan, which is attributed to the Pakistanis’ irritation with deadly drone strikes, not so much to their preference of a specific candidate. Most countries have Romney in single digits, with Western Europe, especially France, favoring Obama by the widest margin.
My prediction: while Obama is far from ideal, no world leader (except, perhaps Israel’s Netanyahu) wants Romney as US President, in fact he scares everyone with his bellicose posturing. Foreign perception is that his angry rhetoric, lack of reason and restraint would make his presidency into Bush 2.0. By the way, this is also perception of much of the international investment community – and international investment community is seldom wrong.
It is naive to think that American elections happen in a vacuum. In our globalized and interconnected world, it should not be underestimated how much influence other countries and global community hold over any country’s policy and elections. In fact, I noticed that global opinion is the most accurate barometer of presidential election results in any country. For example, the international community at large (excluding USA and UK) wanted Putin to win (of course, there was really no contest anyway). In France, both the country and international perception were against Sarkozy, and sure enough – he lost.
Read my follow up articles/predictions regarding the elections in Russia, France and USA.
I will be posting a follow up after the US elections, including my new predictions regarding the very important for the Eurozone German Chancellor Election 2013, including Angela Merkel’s chances.
Many have asked me to expand my predictions and talk about the future of financial markets, economic outlook for various countries and continents, as well as the future of world peace. I will try to post more of my predictions going forward. Stay tuned!
