Lada Ray Reveals Putin’s Secret! Why Putin Did Nothing After US Expelled 35 Russian Diplomats?

putin-speaks

Most foreign MSM and analysts called the fact that Putin didn’t respond to Obama expelling 35 Russian diplomats a “triumph of Vladimir Putin’s policy.” Many call it generous and magnanimous. Some in the West believe that Putin, thus, created a trap for the US. Most agree that the move – rather the lack of an obvious tit-for-tat move as was expected – was unpredictable.

Why did Putin do nothing? Lada Ray reveals Putin’s Secret

Vladimir Putin is famous for his master chess moves no one expects. This was one of them. However, perhaps not as unpredictable as the Western MS will make you believe.

In fact, it is directly in line with everything Putin and Russia have been doing. It is in line with how Russia continues trying to work with the EU, despite all the crazy anti-Russian rhetoric coming from Berlin, Paris and London; how Russia still tries to work with Ukraine to resolve the crisis there, despite all the lies. It is also in line with how Russia tries to resolve and end the crisis in Syria, despite all the accusations to the contrary and attacks against Russia. It is also in line with Russia dealing with Turkey and Erdogan despite the downing of the Russian Su-24 and despite the killing of the Russian ambassador to Turkey.

Russia’s goal, as the Great Balancer, is to calm down conflict, relieve tensions and move on to some sort of peaceful resolution. This is the role Russia played for centuries, possibly millennia. This is the truth. But of course, this truth was twisted and Russia in most instances was presented as aggressor, instead of protector and defender she really was. The attempts to re-write history are happening in front of our very eyes, as we live it.

But we live in the times of the Galactic Dawn, when the first rays of truth illuminate the deep shadows of the passing Galactic Night. During this time, suddenly, what was hidden gets revealed. This is why there is so much international support for Russia and Putin and this is why suddenly people start seeing Obama, Western MSM, and various hidden forces, for what they really are.

It so happens that in our times of the grass-roots journalism and internet it’s hard to hide the obvious. The truth comes out, no matter how various forces try to bury or distort it.

Russians weren’t fooled as to who ordered the downing of the Russian Su-24 and who was behind the death of the Russian ambassador. Read: Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov Assassinated in Ankara! Cui Bono?

It was clear that of all parties, Turkey and Erdogan were the ones who didn’t benefit at all. But the major beneficiaries were those who wanted to prevent Russia and Turkey from working together; those who also wanted to prevent Russia, Turkey and Iran from forming an alliance. These were the US/CIA, as well as Saudis and Qatar. Israel may have had an interest as well, but my intel says clearly that it was specifically the US-Qatar-Saudis axis.

In the case of the 35 Russian diplomats’ expulsion from the US the party that clearly does not benefit is the incoming US President Trump. Therefore, as I predicted in ESR16 and follow ups, this is part of the plan by the collective forces of the Obama-handlers, democrats, CIA/US Empire/NWO-remnants to build as many Berlin Walls and traps for the future American administration as possible before Trump takes office. It is the plan to sabotage any possibility of warming up for the Russia-US relations.

I also want you to note that my prediction of Trump being tied up and having to make deals, thus compromising his initial plans, is spectacularly coming true!

And now we are getting back to Putin and Russia. Here is the golden rule of the master chess geopolitics, as well as the art of war at its best. If your enemy (or rival) very much wants you to do something, it means that a trap is being set up for you. Therefore, the wise know NOT to do what they are pushed to do by those who have ulterior motives.

If in 2014 US/West desperately wanted Russia to send troops to Ukraine to quell the ukro-nazi coup, so Russia could be vilified and presented as aggressor… Russia should have, and has done, the opposite. Therefore, Russia never sent troops to Ukraine,  as I predicted.

If the goal of the downing of the Su-24 and killings of the Russian pilot and ambassador was to sabotage the pivotal for the Great Earth Shift Russia-Turkey relations, building of the Turkish Stream and ending the war in Syria… then Russia had to derail that plan by acting contrary to it. In other words, instead of war and animosity, as US intended, Russia made up with Turkey and warned Erdogan of the coup. Putin played his master move, and the added bonus was the fact that now Erdogan is in Russia’s debt and that he is ready to expel US/NATO troops from Turkish bases.

In the case of US expelling Russian diplomats, Russia could have done the common diplomatic tit-for-tat and expelled 35 US diplomats. FM Lavrov proposed that to Putin. But that would have created a very explosive diplomatic situation just in time for Trump to take office, which could have escalated into a bigger conflict. This certainly would derail Trump-Putin meeting, which is supposed to happen in March. Instead of moving forward, Russia and US could be stuck in various tit-for-tat. This is what the Trump enemies, who therefore are the enemies of the American people as well, wanted to accomplish.

Putin did the best thing a truly wise, strong and forward-looking leader could do. His response was indeed generously magnanimous. Putin has said that he regrets Obama chose to end his presidency and relations with Russia on such bad note. Putin has also said that any future negotiations Russia will conduct exclusively with Trump’s administration. And then, he refused a tit-for-tat expulsion of the American diplomats and closure of the corresponding American compounds in Russia (US closed down two Russian diplomatic compounds in New York and Maryland).

This was a truly generous gift to the new US President Donald Trump. It was a show of support and faith; it was a signal of the expectation that Trump would do better.

At the same time, it is also Russia’s signal to the US that she won’t stoop to the level to which US has stooped, giving US the opportunity to reform.

Now Russia will await Trump’s and USA’s return gestures.

Reload blooper: How Obama and Clinton OVERLOADED relations with Russia

When Obama first took office, Hillary as Secretary of State went to Russia with the flashy slogan of the ‘relations reload.’ Clinton brought the symbolic red button, which was supposed to symbolize the ‘reload’ of Russia- US relations. However, the word was infamously mistranslated into Russian. Instead of perezagruzka, which means ‘reload,’ it read ‘peregruzka,’ which means ‘overload.’

When Lavrov and Clinton symbolically, for the cameras, pressed the button, Lavrov as a gracious host made light of it, jokingly commenting on the mistake. But it was a cosmically predetermined Freudian slip. Shortly after, the relations began spiraling out of control.

I hope Trump hires better translators and generally refrains from pressing silly red buttons. I also hope he concentrates not on flashy lies about ‘reload’ and ‘we are change,’ but on real change and real work!

Russian Submarines Target ISIL (Daesh) in Syria from Mediterranean. What Does it Mean?

This just in!

I very rarely post videos with direct weapons usage on my blog. But this is one exception. I thought this impressive video was worth posting as it demonstrates clearly how the conflict in Syria is developing. It also shows that Russia is serious about both dealing with ISIL – Daesh and with showing who is in control of the situation.

In ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER we’d discussed the surprise Russian cruise missile strikes from Caspian Sea. This is something new and it sends another signal. What is this signal, and what’s really going on around Syria and Turkey?

I have received many requests from readers to address what is happening and how to interpret that UK, Germany, US and others have sent troops and/or suddenly decided to bomb Syria. There are reports of the US bombing Syrian government troops (deaths reported) under the pretext of bombing Islamist ISIL/Daesh. On another note, Turkey began illegal ground invasion of Iraq, citing the ‘protection of Kurds’ and infuriating the Iraqi government.

All these aren’t isolated accidents. One of our readers suggested it reminded him of the 19th century Crimean War, where Turkey, UK, France and other Western powers ganged up on Russia.

To me it’s much more like the 1941-1945 Great War (Western: World War II). What do I mean? All to be explained in the upcoming ESR7!

The connections between all of the above, plus the downing of the Russian jet in Syria and Russian civilian plane’s bombing in Sinai Egypt, are clear. Together with what’s happening in Ukraine, Crimea, Moldova, Armenia, Turkey, Central Asia and the Balkans, these are all parts of the huge battle for the control of Eurasia. The biggest battles are fought in several historically volatile energy knots: Middle East, Balkans, and Caspian – Black Sea basins. All of these areas are in fact next to each other and are historically inter-connected.

I see them all as one large planetary tension center. Together they constitute the most vulnerable point, or what is called the ‘soft underbelly of Russia.’ In addition, these areas target the destabilization of China and India.

This is why the world’s biggest geopolitical and military shocks will continue in these parts, and this is why peace that we all hope for will be difficult to achieve in these parts for a while. In fact the crisis will deepen – it’ll get worse before it gets better.

As we have observed, the crisis has spilled into the most well-to-do and quiet areas of Europe in the form of the refugee crisis. But someone is orchestrating this crisis. If you think it’s Erdogan and Turkey – that’s only on the surface.

All this and more to be discussed in:

Earth Shift Report 7
 

THE BATTLE FOR EURASIA!

TURKISH CONUNDRUM
Erdogan, Davutoglu & Ottoman Empire

Coming Sunday, December 13! 
Stay tuned!

Turkey conundrum 2

 

This new report should be treated as the continuation and logical progression of ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER. It’ll pick up where the former left off.

ESR5 Syria Game Changer 2

 

It is also a logical development of ESR6: UKRAINE – NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?

NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE

THE BATTLE FOR EURASIA may become a new series of reports. We’ll see how my readers like this one. If you do enjoy it, please write testimonials on FT after you’ve read it, and perhaps in future ESRs I’ll be able to reveal the clandestine developments and convoluted games played in other important areas of Eurasia!

I plan to release ESR7 by the end of this week (early next week the very latest), so you all have plenty of time to read and digest it well before the holidays.

Let’s hope that nothing extremely terrible happens during this holiday season and we can at least relax and have a nice Christmas/New Year’s celebration with our families!

BRAGGING TIME AND THOUGHTS: My Predictions Coming True…again. France Admits Putin Is Winning, EU “Blinked”

Many thanks to reader and FT friend Gary . Gary says: “here is a link to sensational remarks by the French ambassador to the US basically throwing in the towel in the war against Russia. He frankly says that Russia has won, game over. This guy is one of the elites in Europe. This is also music to my ears. I love to see these psychopaths and sociopaths in agony.”

Lada says: For those who’ve asked… If you want to see a typical NWO member, look no further – Gerard Araud is it.

Quote from Zerohedge.com:

“While the analogy of Vladimir Putin playing geopolitical chess (while the rest of the world plays checkers) has been a popular one, the French ambassador Gerard Araud has a different – somewhat stunningly honest  – perspective: Putin “is more a poker player really, putting all the money on the table; saying, ‘Do the same’ and of course we blink. We don’t do the same.” As Bloomberg reports, Araud goes on to express entirely un-Juncker-like, how Putin has outmaneuvered his opponents and humiliated Ukraine. Simply put, he adds, the Russian president “has won because we were not ready to die for Ukraine, while apparently he was,” leaving the ominous question, “when is Putin going to stop? Whatever we decide is a disaster for us.”

BRAGGING TIME AND THOUGHTS…

MY PREDICTIONS COMING TRUE!

Chess, poker… sure, why not. It’s all appropriate. But if you want to use the poker parallel, then I can assure you that Putin NEVER put ALL his money on the table – and this is precisely why EU and US blinked. I can assure you, Russia has much more up her sleeve and many more moves the West will never see coming.

Shouldn’t have attacked Russia in her own backyard. Never a good idea – please check your history.

Apparently, they never got a memo from their mommy that Russia’s karmic role is TO STOP any aggression and abuse of world power. No, they wouldn’t know. But you, dear readers, can read all about that in my PREDICTIONS!

Russia today may be smaller than the USSR or the Russian Empire, but it is more stable both politically and economically. Russia and Putin also have more moral and popular support internally and globally than any country or political figure at any time in history. People sense that this is the time of the great shift and that Russia is the one to lead that shift. Meanwhile US support is practically gone; the only remedy remaining is coercion, threats and brute force. This is all part of the natural cycle.

As calculated by the Russian economists, Russia’s ability to withstand sanctions and economic downturn is 10 times the EU and USA’s ability for the same. Russian military shield, after the disastrous ’90s, is now back to optimal. Russia isn’t advertizing some of the most advanced defence and offence weapons she has, weapons that can incapacitate entire US fleet or any rocket directed at Russia. The only thing that can stop those who live to create chaos around the world to suit their private agenda or to enrich themselves at others’ expense is a threat that they will suffer more if they do, whether it is financially/economically or militarily. Russia has succeeded in convincing EU/US in both. I want to emphasize that Russia and Putin succeeded in all this with relatively little blood and loss, and seemingly casually. See below for my predictions on this!

And by the way ‘the willingness to die for Ukraine’ wasn’t a bluff as I was trying to convey many times through my articles. But this is something these stuck-up neocon idiots would never understand… It was US/EU/Kiev junta that stupidly tried, and are still trying, to bluff, which is so obvious for those in the know.

My readers will recall that ever since my first articles and interview about Ukraine back in February/March 2014, I had made important predictions that are coming true one by one:

1. I predicted that US/EU have already lost but they don’t know it yet. Check!

2. I predicted that Russia would NOT send troops to Ukraine, but will remold the situation slowly in her favor ‘by using all quiet and peaceful means at her disposal.’ Check! (Please recall how many ‘experts’ and ‘clairvoyants’ of all sorts had been saying again and again that Russia is about to send troops to Ukraine – some still do! I was the ONLY one who said firmly from the very beginning that it would never happen!)

3. I predicted that this whole decade and beyond is the time of Russia and there is only one outcome possible: Russia becoming more influential and the Western neocon NWO gradually losing ground. Ongoing check after check… but I can assure you, this is only the beginning.

4. I predicted that between 2016 and 2018 Ukraine will be ruled by completely different people and it will become a part of the Customs/Eurasian Union with Russia. This is still to come, but when it does happen – THAT will be the final checkmate! Well, a least as far as the Ukraine geopolitical ground zero goes…

For these predictions and much more see PREDICTIONS by Lada Ray (this page also contains links to some relevant articles you may want to explore). Also read my first articles from February/March/April, etc., for much more about my predictions and analysis. These you can find under categories Russia and Ukraine.

GREAT NEWS!

I plan to reorganize the PREDICTIONS page. Eventually, it will be expanded to include all my global predictions for this decade and beyond, and it will become either a separate EARTH SHIFT REPORT or a book. Stay tuned!

The long-awaited Earth Shift Report 1: THE PUTIN ENIGMA is coming in mid-November. All news and links will be posted on the EARTH SHIFT REPORT page.

Also, now coming very soon: FREE ES Report: The Roots of Russophobia in Ukraine and How to Cure it. Release is projected for next week! Stay tuned!

Predictions: Russia Hits West With Return Sanctions

Russia may ban EU flights across Russian territory

As a result of the EU sanctions against the Russian civil aviation industry, at least one Russian airline “Dobrolet,” had to cease operations. Dobrolet flies to Crimea and now Crimea is in a difficult situation due to a very limited airline connection with Russia. Crimea presently doesn’t share land border with Russia.

Dobrolet Airlines is trying to secure aircraft leasing deals in China and Singapore to replace Western jets it is banned from using. It appears, Dobrolet is also in negotiations with Boeing to purchase 16 jets. I know they are in dire straits, but my recommendation would be NOT to deal with Boeing, considering recent Boeing 777 downing in Ukraine, company’s US origins and reputation.

In response, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia is considering response sanctions against the EU. The proposal is to ban EU flights across Russia. Considering Russia covers 1/6th of the Earth’s land mass and occupies large parts of both Europe and Asia, it is a big problem for European flights to Asia and the Far East. All EU flights to Japan, S. Korea and other Asian countries go across Russian territory. This saves 3-4 hours flight time and $40,000 per flight in fuel cost. Russia may ban some, or all, such flights, making planes take longer and more difficult routes.

There is no final decisions yet, but it is expected soon. Meanwhile, EU airline stocks are taking a hit in anticipation of the Russian sanctions.

Gas sanctions on the horizon?

EU, when imposing their sanctions, was very careful not to touch the Russian gas industry, as first and foremost, the EU would be hurting itself. It has become known that Gazprom has sent a letter to all its trading partners, proposing to trade its gas for rubles, bypassing the dollar entirely. So far, the tone of the letter is mild, but it may change, depending on the response. We discussed this in some of my previous articles. The reason Russia was unable to transition to the ruble-based gas trade, despite trying for years, is because Russia’s main trading partner, EU, is thoroughly under the US thumb. Even if the EU wanted to transition our of the dollar trade, they can’t as US won’t let them.

Predictions:

However, the circumstances have changed, and Russia will eventually sell more gas to China than to Europe. The anti-Russian sanctions backdrop may make Russia more motivated to press for ruble-based trade with the EU very soon. US is mortally afraid of this, and this is why it will continue twisting EU’s arms. US will also use all available methods to try to scare Russia. This is why, unfortunately, US will continue war in Ukraine for as long as Ukrainians allow them to be on their territory. Let’s face it – this war is conducted, masterminded and financed by the US – and Ukrainians are just the convenient dupes and cannon fodder. US is after Russia – Ukraine is just a side effect.

If you haven’t yet, it’s useful to watch my two related videos, analysing this topic: Russia-China Deal of the Century – Huge Blow to US/EU  and Predictions: Russian Gas and Russia-China Deals.

In addition to destroying Russia, which is the prime objective of the US/UK and their cronies, they wouldn’t mind weakening the EU. By fighting with Russia, by imposing sanctions, EU is happily walking into the trap US/UK so skillfully laid out for them. This isn’t the first time: 100 years ago Europe was dragged into WWI after Great Britain successfully pitted Austria-Hungary/Germany and Russia against each other. The result was the most disastrous century in recent human history. WWII happened the same way.

I wonder, will humans ever learn?

Meanwhile, many Russians feel their government is being too soft with their response to Western sanctions. There are demands for tougher response to the US and EU sanctions, including gas supply sanctions against the EU. If EU continues on this destructive path, they MAY get gas shortages just in time for Christmas. At least, that’s what some Russians demand their government do.

Russians also demand that their government boot out the ‘fifth column’ out of the country’s media and government.

It is important to emphasize that Putin can’t afford to act rashly and emotionally as some people seem to demand he does. The world is so unstable right now that it would be disastrous not only for Russia, but for the world in general. Putin’s balanced and cautious stance is what keeps the world spinning. Hot heads need to calm down, and that includes the hot heads not only in Russia, but also the well-meaning hot heads in the West. Those who demand all kinds of drastic actions from Russia, have to take a deep breath and look at the consequences. At the very least, read my articles (and my additional clarifying writing in the comment section), which explain a lot of the underbelly of what’s going on.

Prediction:

As always, Putin will be very careful with his responses. He will consider all sides of the issue; he will set aside emotions. However correct and justified, these emotions is something the leader of Russia cannot afford. It is abundantly clear that the West, led by the US/UK/Canada, has taken a path to self-destruction. I don’t think they fully realize it yet that the path of harming Russia is in fact a bona fide path to their own destruction. When they finally get it, it will be too late. Therefore, Putin has to act in such a way that he saves not only Russia, and Ukraine, but also the rest of the world. It is my firm and extremely confident prediction that what is good for Russia, is good for the rest of the world. Russia must, and will, act in its self-interest; but by doing so, Russia also acts on behalf of the higher good of the entire planet. The sooner people in the West grasp this, the better for all. See more in Predictions.

Breaking!

Russia imposes broad-range agricultural/food/raw material sanctions on the West

This just in! Kremlin officially announced the broad response sanctions against all Western countries who imposed sanctions against Russia. The list of banned imports from such countries is being drawn, but it is already known that it will affect agriculture, raw materials and food from the West, including US, Canada, UK, some EU countries, and Japan. This ban will be effective for one year, but can be revised as necessary. According to Russian reports, the ban will not touch average Russian citizen, but will impact the luxury market. See report by RT: Russia hits back with agricultural bans for sanctioning countries.

As of this writing, Russia halted all agricultural imports from the US for the term of one year. Russia also banned agricultural imports from Romania. Imports from Italy and Greece will be limited. Canada’s exports of raw materials to Russia are expected to be banned as well.

Additionally, the McDonald’s presence in Russia is in question, although for now, only milk-related and cheeseburger McDonald’s products are under health services investigation. See my post about that: War on All Fronts: McDonalds May Be Booted out of Russia; Latvia Bans Russian Superstars; Why did Yatsenyuk Resign; Repatriation of Russian Capital.

Russia also banned all agricultural imports from Poland as the country that was, and is, largely behind the Ukraine crisis. Poland expected to export to Russia a billion rubles worth of apples, among other things. Polish mercenaries are the driving force behind the Ukraine army, which without the participation of the Lithuanian and Polish mercenaries, would have fallen apart and would not have been able to effectively bomb the peaceful civilians in Donbass.

Russia closed its borders to milk and children’s products from Ukraine. Soy-related products from Ukraine are expected to be banned next. Imports into Russia from Ukraine are down 23% in the first 6 months of 2014.

Meanwhile, Ukraine keeps banning all kinds of Russian imports as well, except these make painfully little sense. Recently, Ukraine banned the movie and the book by the beloved classic of world literature, Mikhail Bulgakov, The White Guard, about the plight and tragedy of the White Russian officers during the 1918 Civil War. The action in it takes place in Kiev. Here is a beautiful song from the amazing Russian movie, The Days of the Turbins, based on The White Guard. Click to listen on YT: The White AcaciaБелой акации – Дни Турбиных

Kiev also banned Russian-Ukrainian movie, Poddubny, about Ukrainian champion boxer who became national hero after defeating American champion. Poddubny, unlike Rocky, is based on true historic events. It appears the Kiev junta was afraid to offend their American bosses by allowing this kind of movie to be shown in Ukraine – a new American colony.

In addition, Kiev also plans to ban Russian medicine exports. Considering medicine cost in Ukraine is up by 300% this year, banning affordable Russian medicine will make it even more difficult for simple citizens to survive.

Russia is growing cooperation with various countries around the world, as well as some former Soviet republics and will have no problem replacing products from Europe. So far, it has been announced that Russia will increase imports of fruits and vegetables from Turkey.

Analysis and prediction:

This is a big positive for Russia. What I said in my previous articles and predictions is now playing out. I said that in the long run Russia will only benefit from the Western sanctions.

Russia doesn’t need foods and agricultural products from the West. This desire to import cheeses, wine and pate from Europe is a leftover hiccup from the 1990s, when desire to be just like the West reigned supreme as the greedy oligarchs ran rampant. Pretty packaging isn’t worth selling your country for.

Now Russia can return to her core agricultural suppliers. During my trip, I visited some Central Asian markets and enjoyed authentic restaurants. Central Asia: Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan – and this concerns Caucasus too – have wonderful agricultural products, much better and tastier than in the West. Sure, their packaging isn’t as pretty, or none at all. So what? You won’t eat packaging; it’s the substance that matters.

You can’t even begin comparing the authentic, natural Central Asian, Caucasus and Russian foods with the American over-pesticided, chemicalized, and GMO’ed products. Admittedly, Europe has much better foods and produce, but the good old Europe also started succumbing to same. It’s a little, dirty secret that GMO is already being quietly used in Europe. European soils are depleted from many years of intensive exploitation; crops are down. Europe is desperate for the agricultural output boost, which, they naively think, will be provided by GMO. Russians will only be healthier if such foods are banned. For the full analysis and predictions of the GMO/agriculture situation in the EU, US and Russia, watch: Russia’s #GMO Ban & Russia-China Holy Grail Gas Deal, including global GMO usage charts.

Central Asia and Caucasus used to, and they should continue supplying Russia with a huge variety of wonderful fruits and vegetables. In Central Asia everything matures much earlier than in Europe and can yield multiple crops per annum.

Moreover, Russia is fully capable of feeding herself with her own agricultural staples. Incidentally, Russia is expecting a bumper grain crop this year. There has been a public outcry in Russia for years that the proliferation of Western agricultural/food imports suppresses domestic producers – again an imbalance left over from the disastrous ’90s. The move of banning agriculture and foods from the West will allow domestic producers to reclaim their lawful place in the Russian market. Wheat, rye, barley, and most other grains, apples, pears, grapes, most berries (Russia has the best berries in the world!), cucumbers, potatoes, cabbage, beets, carrots, cheese, milk, awesome kefir & tvorog (farmers cheese – it also used to be the best when I was little, and very affordable), and lots of other goodies. Russian territories are huge, agricultural lands are well-rested and natural, unlike the over-pesticided, tired soils in most of the world. In fact, Russia is poised to become a truly natural, wholesome bread basket to the world, once the country invests in agriculture properly.

USSR used to have a fully self-sufficient agricultural heavy machinery production. Between Russia and Belarus all necessary agricultural equipment can be manufactured domestically. Unfortunately, due to the suicidal policies of the Kiev government, Ukraine, which is the third former Soviet republic with developed machine industry, has to be excluded from this equation.

Finally: this move allows Russia to restore some good will not only with parts of its own farming population, but also with Central Asian and Caucasus republics. The good will became tainted and confused after the breakup of the USSR, when some regions and former Soviet republics felt abandoned by Russia – the result of harmful (some Russians call it treason) policies by Gorbachev and Yeltsin.

I would caution my readers from the outright blame. I can confidently say that at least in part, it was naiveté and wishful thinking, going hand in hand with a certain lack of understanding of the geopolitical processes that got both Gorbachev and Yeltsin into hot waters (along with the entire country, I might add). I intend to write about what really happened, why and how, before, during and after the breakup of the USSR, in my future posts and special reports. I promise, the information will be revealing, and in many cases, surprising. And as always, it will be authentic. Stay with me!

On the same note, Russia will return to its faithful traditional suppliers from Cuba, Nicaragua and some other Latin American countries. Russia can also renew its agricultural ties with Vietnam, India, and possibly, other Asian countries. This is trickier for a number of reasons, including the GMO/pesticide infestation and the US subservience of some of these countries. Strictly speaking, Russia doesn’t need Asian agriculture as much due to lots of other options.

In conclusion: those who were wondering why Putin and Russia were so slow in implementing return sanctions, here is why. In the usual Putin’s style, Russia wanted to first exhaust all possible diplomatic means, appealing to reason and survival instinct of the Europeans, and hoping that the EU has enough sense left. Secondly, the direction Russia wanted to take with any return sanctions had to be such as to not harm the Russian population. Once the former was exhausted and the direction of the latter was determined (agriculture/raw materials/foods, possibly aviation), Russia could start acting.

It is clear that Russia is still hoping for a tiny spark of reason from Western Europe. My unfortunate diagnosis is that any such spark cannot be expected from the US, Poland or Canada. UK and Australia are largely in this camp, but perhaps there is a bit more resistance from the population. My diagnosis isn’t very comforting regarding the EU either. Unfortunately, the US has managed to scare European governments into submission.

Let’s recall what they did with the French bank BNP Paribas – the $10bln fine nearly bankrupted the bank. To scare the French further, US also blocked France’s access to international exchange facilities; then of course, the access was restored. This cynical flexing of its muscles may be satisfying to the US in the short run, but after this, who in their right mind would still believe US can be reasoned with? This reminds me of a huge monster playing with its food before it devours it. Pretending to let it go for a second, and then grabbing it again, before the fatal strike. What happened to France is a signal to all EU countries – toe the line, or you are next.

US, in fact, is very busy manufacturing its ultimate fall from grace. The problem for us all is that while falling into abyss, in its usual style, US tries to drag everyone down with it.

US and IMF try to manufacture artificial Argentine default 

Argentina is the latest victim of the US monstrous games. Argentina, which openly supports Putin and Russia, publicly denouncing USA’s and West’s interference in Russian and Ukrainian affairs, is also a supporter of Palestine, speaking up against the Israeli invasion.

Immediately after Putin’s recent visit to Argentina and Latin America, US blocked Argentine dollar-denominated accounts. As a result, Argentina was pushed into pre-default territory. When the payment on Argentine debt came due, Argentina was unable to access its accounts to make a payment. As the howling started that Argentina is about to declare another default, Wall Street immediately attacked Argentine currency and debt, while IMF began pressuring Argentina to restructure its debt on even more CABAL conditions than before. These new conditions would have effectively put Argentina in a slavery dependence from the West forever. If not, Argentina is facing a virtual financial blockade. However, Argentinians rallied around the government, publicly calling the US and West “vultures.”

What happened to Argentina is a warning by the US to other Latin American and third world countries: be friendly with Russia, or try to keep an independent policy – and we’ll devour you. It’s not even a mafia style warning. Frankly, mafia to me seems like a much more sensible and reasonable entity than what we are dealing with here.

Here is how they operate: each country has a weakness. They identify this weakness, store it the databank, and when they need to subdue a country, they fish out this information and engineer an all-out attack on the weakest link.

For Argentina, it is finances. Argentina, for historic and national mentality reasons, is unable to get its financial house in order based on the predatory ‘western norms.’ Argentine mentality and psyche is so different from the Western psyche that they can’t operate within the Western usury system. If you ask me, it’s a good quality! But it always gets them in trouble with the US and IMF, who are presently monopolizing the world financial system.

Meanwhile, Argentina has tremendous natural resources and lovely population. They have lots of potential, should it be allowed to freely develop. It is for the countries like Argentina that the BRICS bank is being created. For more on this read: New Predictions!

This is what I wrote on FuturisTrendcast on October 6, 2013

(This was written well before Sochi Olympics; before there was even any talk of Eurasian Union; before the Ukraine coup bloodshed; before the present-day glaring and gloves-off war between the old and the new. It was before all the crazy news and lightning-fast global twists and turns we see today. At the time, we still lived in a very different, much slower moving, and more agreeable world. It was one of my first articles on FT, well before the blog became popular). 

Prediction: New Economic Axis of Power and The Grand Chessboard by Lada Ray

MY ANALYSIS:

There has been a clear pivot to the East in German economic policy — from the Nord Stream joint venture with #Russia to the new Chinese deals… even if politically Germany still seems to be in the opposing camp. Germany’s long-term goal is to divorce itself from the Cross-Atlantic political/military alliance with #USA and #UK. To be sure, there are other European countries that wouldn’t mind changing their pivot somewhat as well.

However, Germany has to tread softly and change its pivot extremely slowly and gradually due to these factors: 1. Many conflicting points of view within Germany itself; 2. #NATO obligations; 3. Germany’s checkered war past, which still looms over it and ties its hands; 4. US holding the majority of #GermanGold and possibly blackmailing Germany with it. Details are scarce, but we know for sure that Germans still can’t get their gold out of the US and are being given a run around; 4. Not to mention sensitive Western political issues with China and Russia, to name a few.

MY PREDICTION:

The German trend of changing pivot to the East and slowly shifting trade priority towards cooperation with China, as well as Russia, will continue intensifying during this decade. This is the newly forming EURASIAN economic axis of power with Russia as the bridge between the two: Germany – Russia – China, with the possibility of other countries participating. Notice that each of the 3 economies in question compliment each other extremely well: Germany’s technology, science and high-end merchandise, Russian natural resources, energy (both conventional and budding alternative), agricultural potential, space exploration, military technology and science; China’s huge manufacturing capacity and human potential. Each country is a natural market for each other’s goods and services.

I am very happy that others are now talking about this as well. This means that we are getting closer to the shift I was predicting.

This just posted on What’s the Real Truth? JIM WILLIE: IT HAS BEGUN- GERMANY TO BREAK FROM US/UK, JOIN RUSSIA/CHINA ALLIANCE! 

It is finally happening in full view, in unmistakable manner, in a way that the awake, the aware, and the conscious can perceive in alarming stunning terms.

The central force of Europe, the industrial juggernaut, the stable core, has begun to pivot East.

The Germans have had enough, fed up with destructive US activities of all kinds.   For the last few months, they have been laying out their indictment, their justification, their reasons to abandon the corrupt US-UK crowd.   The bank wreckage, the market rigging, the endless wars, the sanctions which backfire, the sham monetary policy, the economic sabotage, the spying, the gold gimmicks, it has finally reached a critical level.”

Lada says:

I think it’s premature to get this enthusiastic. It’s not going to be an easy going, and not right away, as I said in my original prediction, but the energy is moving in this directions without a doubt. My full article here.

Clandestine US Wars: Operation #GladioB by Sibel Edmonds and James Corbett

Clandestine US Wars – Operation Gladio B

In this post I’ve collected the best pieces of the puzzle for the mysterious Operation Gladio used by the US for many years in clandestine war against USSR and socialist countries. The whistle on #Gladio and #GladioB was blown by the FBI’s Sibel Edmonds, who was originally from Iran and Turkey and who specialized in the Middle East during her FBI tenure. After the end of the Soviet Union, all these rogues, militants, sociopaths, Turkish and Central Asian mafia godfathers – “babas,” employed and financed by the US, have been re-tooled and re-branded to be used: 1. in the manufactured “war on terror” 2. to try and destabilize US rivals: Russia and China.

For my childhood Cold War memories that compliment what Sibel is saying + my analysis of Why Russia isn’t playing the card of knowledge re. Gladio A and B? – scroll down to Part 3!

Sibel Edmonds on Gladio B – Part 2

Sibel Edmonds on Gladio B – Part 3

In this part Sibel talks about Turkish generals and colonels defecting to Russia and the implications thereof, namely that Russia is fully aware of Gladio and other US operations, including the foreign nature of the Chechen militants who were trained and implanted in Russia by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and US. Sibel expresses puzzlement why Russia is not using “the knowledge card.”

My Cold War childhood memories growing up in Odessa, USSR: I grew up in Odessa, which is across from Turkey on the Black Sea. I remember vividly from my early years during the Cold War days how we had military watch towers all over the coast. You go to the beach and from the corner of your eye you always see a watch tower. One summer, when I was 6 or 7, my relatives and I went to the beach around midnight to celebrate a family reunion, and before we knew it, we were blinded by giant projectors as people with dogs and guns appeared out of nowhere. We always lived with an implied “veiled threat from Turkey,” which at the time served as the unsinkable carrier and a secret US/NATO base in constant clandestine Western war against Russia. Turkey essentially was a corrupt country with no identity, serving the US lap dog role (unfortunately it still does). In Odessa, we had plenty of spy scandals – spies were actually caught on the beach attempting to infiltrate the Soviet Union. They would be caught straight in their diving suits having crossed the Odessa Bay underwater from a US or Turkish sub positioned in neutral waters. So, those watch towers did their job very well, and what Sibel talks about rings true on many levels.

Why is Russia ‘not playing this card,’ as Sibel puts it? Sibel may know the Middle East, but I know Russia. Russia IS playing the card of knowledge of what’s happening. They just do it smartly. They don’t make a noise because they have ongoing operations. Why would they announce what they are doing? To alert terrorists so they could escape? Russia also plays this card with the US, but behind the scenes, which is very astute. How – it’s complicated. But suffice it to say that we’ll be seeing more and more of shrinking US influence and more of rising Russian influence in Eurasia and all over the world. This is my prediction.

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.
