The other day the Uniate website RISU, which is based in the Ukrainian Catholic University, and subsequently a number of other media agencies spread news that is in fact information that has been preparation for the beginning of a full-scale religious war in Ukraine.

For those who haven’t seen this post, I will specify that a number of public figures declared that the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) and Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate (UOC MP) bear full responsibility for the military operations in the East of Ukraine. All of this was presented as a certain initiative of certain public figures from different churches, but at the same time it was separately written that the ROC and the UOC MP still haven’t admitted their guilt for the Lvov Sobor, during which the remnants of the Uniates in Ukraine decided to join the ROC. Those who are interested in studying the text of the message in full and the list of signers can do so here.

And now let’s work out what is happening, who exactly stands behind the writing of this aggressive attack on the UOC MP and the ROC, and why it was done especially now.

As the proverb goes: “even father doesn’t kiss mother just like that” – every action in this world has reasons and consequences, and this address appeared now not at all by coincidence.

My readers already know that my book about the role of the Catholic church in protest movements and state coups is being prepared for publication. It describes in detail that it is precisely the Catholic church (Roman Catholic Church and Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church [UGCC]) with the assistance of western funds and politicians that was the main driving force of the coup in Ukraine in 2013, and that with the coming to power of Pope Francis the Catholic church put into action a number of similar acts. For example,

Is Nature Preparing for a New Ice Age or a Pole Shift? | Armstrong Economics

There is a very curious connection between lakes and volcanos in the Arctic. I just posted how there are kilotons of CO2 coming out of volcanos. There is a similar thing now showing up in lakes in the Arctic as well. There are about 300 lakes across the tundras of the Arctic. However, a scientist reports that she has never before never seen a lake like this one. The lake looks like it is boiling. It is making a hissing sound and bubbles are rising to the surface like a pot of water which is on the stove. It is actually producing powerful greenhouse gas called methane that Europe is taxing farmers for because their cows produce it. Who should we tax for this one? Methane gas has escaped from the lake bed and the bubbles are as big as a grapefruit.

There has been a rise in volcanic activity under the ice at both the North and South Poles. Nobody knows if this is a prelude to a pole shift or is this simply a foreshadow of climate change and entering into a new ice age. What we do know is that melting ice does not result in rising sea levels, it results in the water evaporates and it comes back as snow which then increases the glaciers once again. The danger is that this entire Global Warming nonsense is ignoring how ice ages are even created!

In fact, The British Daily Mail is reporting that not only was this forecast of Al Gore dead WRONG, the ice cap has actually expanded for the second year in a row covering 1.7million square kilometers MORE than 2 years ago and it is also thicker! In fact, the ice has melted in some areas and is building up in others as if they are gradually starting to move.

US Preparing To Bomb Iran’s Nuclear Capabilities As Soon As Next Month: Report

27-07-18 10:21:00,

As the White House convenes a policy meeting on Iran Thursday involving senior Pentagon officials and cabinet advisers under national security adviser John Bolton, and after a week of intense saber-rattling by President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, a new bombshell report by Australia’s ABC says the White House is drawing up plans to strike Iran’s alleged nuclear facilities as early as next month. 

Senior figures in the Australia’s Turnbull government have told the ABC they believe the US is prepared to bomb Iran’s nuclear capability. The bombing could be as early as next month. —ABC report

Crucially, Australia is part of the so-called “Five Eyes” global intelligence partners which includes the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and plays in a key role in hosting top-secret facilities that guide American spy satellites. 

According to the breaking report, ABC [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] has learned the following based on statements of key senior defense and intelligence officials:

  • Senior Government figures have told the ABC they believe the Trump administration is prepared to bomb Iran

  • They say Australian defence facilities would likely play a role in identifying possible targets

  • But another senior source, in security, emphasizes there is a difference between providing intelligence and “active targeting”

The report cites high level Aussie government officials who say that secretive Australian defense and intelligence facilities would likely cooperate with the United States and Britain in identifying targets in a strike on Iran. 

One particular facility, the Pine Gap joint defense facility in the Northern Territory, would play a significant targeting role in joint US-led strikes on Iran, according to the report, it’s “considered crucial among the so-called ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence partners… for its role in directing American spy satellites.”

And further, other agencies are expected to play a role:

Analysts from the little-known spy agency Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation would also be expected to play a part.

Canada would be unlikely to play a role in any military action in Iran,

Russia Is Preparing for a “Perfect Storm” in the Global Economy | The Vineyard of the Saker

In recent months Russia, as some claim, “strenuously prepared for Putin’s meeting with Trump”. What does this mean?

Firstly, in April the Central Bank of the Russian Federation dumped nearly a half of US Treasuries that it had on its balance, having reduced their stock from $96.2 billion to $48.7 billion.

In May the Central Bank continued to do this, having reduced the quantity of treasuries on its balance even more.

Certain news agencies only emphasized that Russia dropped out of the list of the largest holders of treasuries, having noted that this “is less than $30 billion”. They use students in these news agencies, and as a result such “news” appears.

Having read the full report of US Department of the Treasury, it is easy to see that the size of the Russian investments in treasuries was reduced to $14.9 billion.

I.e., more than sixfold in two months. But there still isn’t any data for June…

Secondly, some observers noticed that against this background the Central Bank of the Russian Federation continued to increase its gold reserves.

Monetary Gold (mln $)








Since the Central Bank shows in its report the amount of gold in the dollar equivalent, we will have to convert it at the rate of the corresponding number.

  • On April 1st 80482/1340 = 60,061 million ounces.
  • On May 1st 81146/1315 = 61,707 million ounces.
  • On June 1st 80511/1301 = 61,884 million ounces.

As we see, the amount of gold indeed steadily grows.

Some were stupid enough to be indignant because the Central Bank buys gold while it goes down in price. On the one hand, if it bought it at the top peak of the price, then it would be worse. On the other hand, it is possible to assume that in the near future certain events are expected that can significantly raise the price of gold.
