THE CRASH & THE COUP
***THE CRASH & THE COUP***
August 20th, 1996
"Stocks are now at what looks like a permanently high plateau."
-uttered by economist Irving Fischer a few days
before the October 1929 stock market crash.
According to the worldview embodied in modern economic "theory",
greed (i.e., wealth-, profit- and utility-maximization) is guiding
Western society toward collective harmony and maximum happiness for
all ("general equilibrium" and "Pareto optimality"). In reality,
however, greed has led society into a state of severe disequilibrium
and, consequently, a collapse of unprecedented proportions lies ahead.
Society's current disequilibrium can be understood by examining
the repeating cycles of history evident in time-series of economic
data like stock prices. According to long-wave patterns in stock
prices, economic activity and historical trends, we are currently
passing a Grand Supercycle turning point that marks the peak of
Western civilization. The approaching downturn implied by these
cyclical patterns suggests that the collapse of Western civilization
will follow the top. (For an overview of long-wave patterns in the
stock market, general economy and world history.
The rise to the final "Elliott Wave" top of Western civilization
is discerned by examining long-run, semi-logarithmic charts of major
stock price indices like the S&P 500. In such charts, there is an
obvious five-wave pattern (up-down-up-down-up) that has developed
between parallel channel lines since the 1932 Great Depression low in
the stock market and U.S. economy. The first upleg occurred between
1932 and 1937; then a correction occurred into 1942. Next, stock
prices climbed to a major peak at Dow 1000 in 1966, after which a
correction into the year 1982 took place. Finally, a last fifth wave
to a Grand Supercycle double-top in January and May of this year
occurred. The rising five-wave pattern is bounded in a long-run chart
of the S&P 500 by a lower trendline that runs through the major stock
market lows on April 28th, 1942, October 3rd, 1974, and August 12th,
1982, and an upper trendline that runs through the major stock peaks
on December 12, 1961, February 9th, 1966, February 12th, 1996 and May
23rd, 1996 (see http://www.avidinfo.com/chat/pechart.htm" ).
Now that the rising five-wave pattern appears to be complete,
stock prices should suffer the largest percentage drop in U.S.
history. Specifically, Robert Prechter, the "Elliott Wave Theorist",
is looking for a 99%+ drop in the DJIA to 400 from recent highs above
5700 (that's 400, not 4000).
The question thus arises as to what could cause such an
unprecedented collapse in stock prices. Since rising and falling
stock prices reflect rising and falling collective expectations,
clearly such a collapse implies that a massive upset of prevailing
expectations is going to occur. In particularly, some sort of huge
negative surprise should be "rationally expected". This, I believe,
is where Russia comes into play.
"...it would never come into their heads (the masses) to
fabricate colossal untruths and they would not believe that
others could have the impudence to distort the truth so
(Adolph Hitler- The "Big Lie" Dictum)
Much like Western economic theorists, Russia's ruling elite has
been busy lying to the world for decades. The ultimate outcome of
these lies will be a nuclear third world war that will end
civilization as we know it.
Russia's lies are extraordinarily large in scale. Effectively,
Moscow has learned to shape history in a deceptive manner in order or
to maximize the perceived interests of the Russian state.
In recent years, Moscow's deceptive strategy has entailed
generating the "false" collapse of Soviet Communism in order to
instill a false sense of security in the West and open the way for a
surprise third world war. Now that the West least expects it, Russia
can launch an all-out military offensive that will rapidly destroy the
Western military powers. Thus, Russia will become the dominant world
power in the place of America and the Western allies.
A critical, specific step Russia will take in order to unleash the
apocalyptic war being planned is a right-wing military coup in Moscow.
This coup could occur as early as this week.
This week marks the fifth anniversary of the August coup in 1991
that supposedly marked the end of Soviet Communism. Between August
19th and August 22nd, 1991, a coup attempt by "hardliners" against
then Soviet Premiere Mikhail Gorbachev was staged in Moscow. As
overviewed in my editorial, "The Price of False Peace" (see below),
this coup attempt was bogus and part of the ongoing deception of the
West geared to prepare the way for a nuclear third world war
(likewise, other political chaos in Moscow, like occurred in October
of 1993, was likely staged and deceptive- see "Judgment For Our Time"
With the current fifth anniversary of the bogus August coup in
1991, there are indications that Moscow is again about to stage a
bogus hardline coup, but this time it will seemingly succeed.
While I have for some years expected a right-wing coup in Moscow
that would involve Vladimir Zhirinovsky's bogus rise to power, it now
appears that a military coup by Alexander Lebed is being planned (see
my "Moscow Coup Alert" below). With the Russian presidential
elections this summer, Alexander Lebed, a retired, hardline army
general, won his way into the powerful position of Boris Yeltsin's
security chief. Next, Boris Yeltsin reportedly gave Lebed widespread
powers that effectively would allow him to take control of the country
in the event of a national crisis.
Now a national crisis is being orchestrated that will allow
Alexander Lebed to take over Russia. Since Boris Yeltsin made Lebed
his security chief, Moscow has been projecting the image that
Yeltsin's health is failing and he is unable to govern the nation.
Furthermore, the Chechen conflict, which is likely a staged deception
(see article, "Chechen Intervention & Moscow's True Intention",
below), has been intensified into a crisis situation. Specifically,
Chechen rebels reportedly retook Grozny, Chechnya's capital city, from
Russian forces earlier this month and greatly humiliated the Russian
army. Consequently, Russian army commanders are seemingly out-of-
control and are threatening a massive military onslaught to take back
Grozny. Indeed, civilians are being warned to leave Grozny before a
massive attack scheduled to begin on August 22nd, the anniversary of
the end of the 1991 hardline coup in Moscow and the date of an
astrological configuration that implies an "explosive transformation"
(see my article on "Kremlin Astrology" below).
In response to the growing crisis, Alexander Lebed is reportedly
heading to Chechnya to "stop the impending madness". Meanwhile, Boris
Yeltsin is rumored to have entered a heart clinic for possible heart
surgery. Recent wire reports suggest that some sort of Kremlin power
struggle between Lebed and Yeltsin is underway over how to handle the
Chechen crisis. Given that Yeltsin is supposedly on his last
political as well as literal legs, clearly the stage is set for Lebed
to win such a power struggle. Thus, a right-wing coup in Moscow and
unprecedented upset of Western expectations may be imminent.
*CHECHEN INTERVENTION & MOSCOW'S TRUE INTENTION*
"There is something very suspicious going on.
Why have they thrown away the rule book?..."
"Either the Russian army really does have a catastrophic
morale problem or this operation was somehow designed to fail."
(a Western military specialist)
What is important to keep in mind is that Russia's military
blunders in Chechnya and the associated political turmoil in Moscow is
being intentionally engineered. This becomes readily apparent when
one realizes the seeming mistakes of Boris Yeltsin and the Russian
army are, in fact, perfectly suited for an ulterior motive, i.e.,
staging a right-wing military coup in Moscow.
So that you understand how current events in Chechnya are
effectively staged and part of Moscow's ongoing deceptive pursuits,
read the following excerpt from a recent Reuter's article.
Reuters World Service January 5, 1995
"Experts baffled by Russian blunders in Chechnya"
By David Ljunggren
Neither Russian nor Western defence experts can find any reasonable
explanation for military blunders in Chechnya which they say suggest
the high command has forgotten everything it ever learned about modern
And as Moscow's troops bog down ever deeper into the ruins of the
Chechen capital Grozny, some commentators are starting to speculate
whether there might be a more sinister side to the Kremlin's ill-
starred Chechnya campaign.
"There is something very suspicious going on. Why have they thrown
away the rule book?" a Western military specialist said.
"Either the Russian army really does have a catastrophic morale
problem or this operation was somehow designed to fail."
Vyacheslav Kostikov, spokesman for President Boris Yeltsin,
dismisses talks of military incompetence. But conspiracy theorists
speaking of plots and subterfuge find a receptive audience among
naturally suspicious Russians.
Otto Latsis, a commentator for Izvestia newspaper, said the once
mighty military-industrial complex -- resentful about the reduction of
its role since the start of democratic reforms -- would welcome either
victory or defeat in Chechnya.
Victory would mean the start of complicated manouevring to boost
anti-democratic forces and mount what would effectively be a coup,
leaving Yeltsin in place as a figurehead.
"A defeat of the Russian armed forces would make it possible to
remove Yeltsin from power not later than the presidential elections in
1996 and therefore they would have carried out the coup without
Yeltsin," Latsis wrote on Thursday.
But military experts have not had the slightest trouble in
identifying a series of gross errors by Russian commanders, not the
least of which was sending in second-rate tanks with inexperienced
crews into an enemy-held city without infantry.
The tanks seen in Grozny so far have mainly been standard T-72
models rather than more modern T-80s, which are equipped with special
"reactive armour" to protect against the anti- tank rockets used by
"It does sometimes make you gasp. How can they possibly have
forgotten everything from the text books they've studied so
assiduously?" said a Western military attache.
But Kostikov said Russian soldiers knew what they were doing. "The
Russian army is one of the most powerful in the world. If it had
wanted to take Grozny by storm it would have done so," he told
independent NTV television on Wednesday.
Western military experts said they did not necessarily believe
Moscow's commanders were under instructions to blatantly undermine the
campaign, either for political ends or to press for a larger armed
"There has been a tremendous cock-up, but I don't think it's
conspiratorial. They have not had the money to do the training they
need. If you don't train, you are not terribly coordinated when you
hit the field," said another attache.
"It's getting to the stage where nearly no one, based on any past
precedent or experience, understands what the Russians are doing,"
said the first military attache."
"But one thing which comes out is that whatever mistakes there are,
the Russians will continue to make them."
He said the problems in Chechnya were all the more surprising given
the first few difficult months after Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan
in 1979, when rebels dealt Moscow's inexperienced soldiers some
"The Afghan experience is such an ingrained part of the system.
Many of today's commanders are Afghan veterans. Although the troops
then were not involved in urban fighting, they were certainly doing
the approach work," the attache said.
The rumour mill, meanwhile, is still working at top speed.
*MOSCOW COUP ALERT*
July 16th, 1996
As anticipated in my recent "Crash Alerts", the stock market is in
the midst of a steep freefall, dropping more than 150 points today.
Notably, the DJIA fell below the key Elliott Wave Supercycle upper
trendline today. This is a telltale sign that the Grand Supercycle
bear market has begun. The question now is what negative historical
events are going to begin taking place to reinforce the new,
unprecedented downtrend in mass mood.
In my "Global War Articles" I outline a potential scenario world
history might follow in order to fit the huge upset of Western
expectations that is implied by the coming Grand Supercycle collapse
in stock prices. This scenario highlights the likelihood of some sort
of right-wing coup in Russia that will be associated with an outbreak
of world war three. The probability of such a coup in the near, if
not immediate, future appears high.
Just as the stock market has started to rollover, reports have
emerged that Russian President Boris Yeltsin, who was just reelected,
might be gravely ill. Today Vice President Al Gore had a scheduled
meeting with Yeltsin abruptly cancelled supposedly because the Russian
President needed some rest. Since Russian authorities clearly could
have sufficiently planned ahead based upon Yeltsin's condition
(whatever it supposedly might be) to avoid such an embarassing scene,
the implication of Moscow's newest move is that Yeltsin's second term
as President of Russia might not last very long.
Who, then, is about to take power in Russia?
While my long-run suspicion has been that the seemingly mad
ultranationalist, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, would be brought to power via
some sort of bogus military coup, it now looks as if the hardliner who
will take control is Alexander Lebed. Lebed, a former Russian
General, has long made clear he is hardly a democrat and would be
happy to restore "order" in Russian society through iron-fisted
tactics. Even though Alexander Lebed clearly is undemocratic, if not
antidemocratic, in character, Yeltsin recently made him his security
chief a nd last week signed a decree that gives Lebed comprehensive
authority over the Russian military, police and intelligence bureaus
in the event of an emergency. The supposed reason Yeltsin gave Lebed
such power was to attract the nationalist vote and win the July 3rd
run-off presidential election. In reality, however, the move was to
set the stage for a Moscow coup in the near-future.
It is likely no coincidence that the current situation in Russia
is eerily similar to what occurred in "Weimar" Germany when Hitler
took power. As I have explained before, according to Marxist-Leninist
doctrine, when democracy fails to serve the purposes of capitalism,
then democracy is supposedly overthrown and replaced with a fascist
dictatorship. Thus, communist Russia has been transformed over the
past decade into "Weimar" capitalist Russia by "reformers" who are
almost all former communists. Now Yeltsin has become a debilitated,
weak-handed president while an ambitious hardliner, Alexander Lebed,
has been placed in a powerful position in a new coalition government.
The current political situation in Russia is, of course, a parallel to
1933 when Hitler was made Chancellor of Germany in a coalition German
government run by an ailing, weak-handed president. From that
powerful position, Hitler eventually took control of Germany and then
unleashed the second world war. This time around, the stage is being
set for a Hitler-like figure to gain control of "Weimar" Russia and
unleash a third world war.
As explained in my 1994 editorial, "The Balkan Trap", a potential
trigger for a coup in Moscow may be NATO military action against the
Serbs. Over the past year, tens of thousands of NATO troops have been
sent into the former-Yugoslavia, what was once a communist puppet
state, in order to quell the civil war that had been underway there
since 1991. Now with NATO in the middle of the Balkan fray, high-
level calls are going out for the overthrow and arrest of the Bosnian
Serbs' populist political and military leaders Radovan Karazdic and
Ratko Mladic for crimes against humanity. The Serbs have threatened
to retaliate against NATO if any attempt is made to detain their
leaders. Thus, there is movement toward a violent confrontation
between the Western Allies and the Russian-backed Serbs. Such a
confrontation along with the political fragility in Moscow clearly
could be used for staging a hardline coup in Russia and the rise of a
nationalist Russian dictator like Alexander Lebed or Vladimir
All in all, now that the Grand Supercycle peak in stock prices
appears to have been passed and "The Crash" is beginning, world events
are moving in the direction I have long been warning people about.
The simple fact is that the faith and confidence people have placed in
themselves, the world and money- something signified by the record
heights recently reached in stock prices- is grossly misplaced.
Indeed, the world has bought into a great big lie once again, and so
the cycle of history and human error is repeating- something best
reflected by what is going on in Moscow at present.
September 6, 1994, Tuesday
"General awaits call of destiny:
Gen Alexander Lebed is a man who makes the Kremlin nervous."
By Chrystia Freeland
In a Russia which is desperately short of heroes, General
Alexander Lebed's popularity is on the rise. Commander of the 14th
army in the Trans Dnestr enclave, the tall, broad-shouldered, blue-
eyed officer appeals to Russians looking for an alternative to the
discredited communist bosses of their past and the uncertain,
sometimes blundering democratic leaders of the present.
At Gen Lebed's headquarters in Tiraspol, the impoverished capital
city of the Trans Dnestr Republic which broke away from Moldova three
years ago, hero-worship is strong. As they sweep invisible dust off
army cannot find enough superlatives to describe their 'comrade Arnold
Schwarzenegger', 'a second Suvorov, a second Kutuzov' (two of Tsarist
Russia's greatest military leaders), 'in all ways a remarkable man'.
The past few weeks have demonstrated that Gen Lebed's writ runs
beyond Tiraspol. The Kremlin has felt uneasy about Russia's most
popular officer since this spring, when Gen Lebed told a Russian
newspaper that his country needed a man like Pinochet, the Chilean
military dictator, and described the Russian president, Mr Boris
Yeltsin, as 'a minus'. However, when Russia's top brass - which is
losing its grip over regional commanders throughout the former Soviet
Union - took on the outspoken general in August, trying three times to
oust him, Gen Lebed won. Adoring Russians responded last week by
electing Gen Lebed to the 'Olympus' of Russia's 100 most popular
politicians, a list compiled monthly by the pollsters at Nezavisimaya
Gazeta, one of Moscow's top daily newspapers.
Ranked as the nation's 13th most popular leader, Gen Lebed drew
more support than better known hard-liners such as Mr Vladimir
Zhirinovsky, the neo-fascist politician, and out-scored Mr Yegor
Gaidar, the standard bearer of market reforms.
But while, in the public eye, Gen Lebed appears to be rapidly
growing into a leader of national stature, he is careful not to
express open political ambitions.
'In these times of troubles, I cannot rule out anything,' is Gen
Lebed's careful answer to the question of whether he will one day be
the leader of all Russia. 'But I will do anything my country requires.
I have served my country in foreign wars and civil wars. Whatever my
country needs, I am not afraid to do.'
On the topic of what it is that his country needs, Gen Lebed is
more forthcoming. 'What's wrong with a military dictator?' the general
asks, recrossing long legs clad in camouflage fatigues which look
freshly pressed even late in the evening and enormous black boots
gleaming with polish. 'In all of its history, Russia has prospered
under the strictest control. Consider Ivan the Terrible, Peter the
Great, Catherine the Great or Stalin.'
Gen Lebed's critique of Russian democracy is delivered with the
calm assurance of a battle-tested officer and the smooth charm of a
gentleman. 'What our country is trying to do now is completely
impossible,' Gen Lebed explains, offering imported Danish biscuits and
rising to prepare coffee. His intense gaze helps to explain his
soldiers' slavish devotion, but does not detract from the toughness of
his message. 'Our leaders have said, 'for centuries our state has been
totalitarian but starting this minute we will be a democratic state'.
This is just not possible. After all, we are still Soviet people.'
Gen Lebed is also convinced - and many sophisticated political
observers would say he is right - that the democratic order Russian
leaders have struggled to build at such great cost is a matter of
absolute indifference to most Russians: 'Most Russians don't care
whether they are ruled by fascists, or communists or even Martians as
long as they are able to buy six kinds of sausage in the stores and
lots of cheap vodka.'
Although Gen Lebed shares some of the hard-liners' preoccupation
with Russia's lost power - he speaks sadly of Russia, with 'our proud
history', now reduced to blindly following recipes 'dreamed up in
Arkansas' - he is no neo-imperialist.
He says he refused an offer to become the minister of defence in
the Central Asian republic of Tajikistan because 'why should I help
one group of Tajiks kill another?'
This sober realisation that Russia's greatness cannot be
recaptured through force of arms in foreign countries is only one way
in which Gen Lebed differs from Russia's civilian hard-liners, whom he
dismisses as 'dangerous populist fanatics'.
As a decorated Afghan veteran he embodies a military order leaders
like Mr Zhirinovsky can only describe and as a central figure in the
defeat of the 1991 hard-line coup, democratic politicians cannot
accuse Gen Lebed of undue sympathy for the old, vanquished regime.
But, for all his insistence that order and discipline are the keys
to Russia's renewal and his coy disavowal of any overt political role,
Gen Lebed has a rather idiosyncratic notion of the command structure
to which he is subordinate.
'I have never served Tsars, or Commissars or Presidents,' Gen
Lebed says. 'They are mortal men and they come and go. I serve only
the Russian state, and the Russian people, which are eternal.'
One can see how the historical events leading to a right-wing coup
in Moscow and third world war are staged by reviewing the connection
between significant astrological configurations in the past and key
events in the Balkan conflict, Russia's conflict with Chechnya and
Below is a list of what took place around the time of important
astrological configurations during the past several years:
1. *June 26th, 1991: Lunar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair. Also,
Pluto was squared (90-degree angle) by an
alignment of Venus, Mars and Jupiter.
Marked the beginning of the civil war in Yugoslavia.
2. *August 19th, 1991: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and
Jupiter in the zodiac sign of Leo.
A failed coup attempt by communist hardliners is staged in Moscow
which supposedly brings an end to the Communist Party and Soviet
3. *June 30th, 1992: Solar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair. This
eclipse was aligned with Venus, Uranus and
Neptune and sextiled (60-degree angle) Mars and
First U.N. forces arrive in Sarajevo as Western military
intervention in the former-Yugoslavia begins.
4. *October 4th, 1993: Pluto conjunct moon squares (90-degree angle)
Saturn and trines (120-degree angle) Venus,
Uranus and Neptune.
Political chaos erupts in Moscow following Russian President Boris
Yeltsin's disbanding of the former-Soviet parliament.
5. *December 13th, 1993: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and
Mars in Sagitarrius.
Communists and Nationalists win the elections for a new Russian
parliament. Of particular surprise is the success of the "Liberal
Democratic Party (?!) led by Hitler-like nationalist Vladimir
6. *January 12th, 1994: Rare seven-planet alignment in Capricorn (five
planets and the sun and moon). Tightest
alignment of seven planets in 300 years.
U.S./Russia summit at which the superpowers sign an agreement to
no longer target each other with nuclear weapons. High collective
expectations for world peace reflected in DJIA reaching near 4000.
Alignment also coincides with increased Serb shelling of Sarajevo
and a NATO summit meeting at which the Western allies agree to use
force in the former-Yugoslavia. Within a month the first NATO
ultimatum was issued for the withdrawal of Serb heavy weaponry from
around a Sarajevan "safe-zone".
7. *November 18th, 1994: Lunar eclipse of solar/lunar eclipse pair.
Eclipse is aligned with Pluto and Jupiter,
squares (90-degree angle) Mars and trines
(120-degree angle) Uranus and Neptune.
Croatian Serb warplanes bomb the U.N.-protected Bihac enclave in
violation of a NATO-enforced "no-fly zone". NATO responds by bombing
Serb positions. This is the first major use of military force against
the Serbs by NATO in the Balkan conflict and the first offensive
military action ever taken by NATO in the 45-year history of the
8. *December 11th, 1994: Mars squares conjunction of Pluto & Jupiter.
Russia invades the breakaway republic of Chechnya.
9. *April 29th, 1995: Solar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair.
Eclipse squares Neptune and Uranus.
Croatian Serb warplanes bomb the U.N.-protected Bihac enclave in
Bosnia in violation of a NATO enforced "no-fly zone" once again. The
Balkan war heats-up as a five-month cease-fire comes to an end.
(Notably, this was the first eclipse pair subsquent to the pair in
November of 1994 which marked the only other time Croatian Serb
warplanes bombed Bihac.)
10. *June 14th, 1995: Mars squares alignment of Mercury, Venus and
Similar to configuration on December 11th, 1994 when Russia
invaded Chechnya. This time, a large group of Chechen rebels attack
a town in southern Russia and take a few thousand Russians hostage at
a hospital. Hundreds are killed and the rebels eventually escaped.
11. *July 12th, 1995: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Neptune and Uranus
trines (120-degree angle) Mars and sextiles
(60-degree angle) Saturn and Pluto.
Russian President Boris Yeltsin reportedly suffers a heart attack
while Bosnian Serb forces overrun the U.N.-protected enclave of

Serbs do a total about-face and reach a peace agreement with
Bosnian and Croatian representatives at peace talks in Dayton, Ohio.
Some 60,000 NATO troops start heading into the former-Yugoslavia to
take over the peace-keeping mission from the United Nations.
Collective optimism associated with reaching peace in the Balkans
is reflected by the DJIA breaking the 5000 mark for the first time in
history the day the agreement is initialed. Notably, the formal
signing of the peace agreement on December 14th, 1995 coincides with
what may have been the final peak in stock prices just above the Dow
5200 mark on December 13th. This represents how Western expectations
were misled to all-time heights by the reaching of a false peace in
the Balkans. The fall in stock prices from this peak should likewise
reflect the upset of Western expectations associated with an
unraveling of the peace agreement and NATO being drawn into the
14. *December 21st/22nd, 1995: 8-planet alignment of Sun, Moon,
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter,
Neptune and Uranus in Capricorn on
the winter solstice.
Communists and nationalists reportedly win in the election of a
new Russian parliament. The political party associated with Boris
Yeltsin's government placed a weak third in the election thus
signalling the coming end to Western-style reform in Russia.
15. *June 16th, 1996: 6-planet alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus,
Mars and Pluto near summer solstice.
Russian presidential elections take place in which the hardline,
former Russian general, Alexander Lebed, won a substantial portion of
the vote and was subsequently made Boris Yeltsin's security chief.
16. *June 30th, 1996: A full "bluemoon" is opposed by Jupiter, the
planet of leaders, and squared by Saturn, the
planet of fate.
Boris Yeltsin disappears from public view, supposedly due to
failing health, going into the run-off Russian presidential election
he reportedly wins on July 3rd.
17. *August 8th, 1996: Mars, the planet of war, opposes Jupiter and
squares Saturn, the planets of leaders and
A minimized Russian presidential inauguration occurs in which
Boris Yeltsin makes his first public appearance since the run-off
Russian presidential election. Yeltsin appears frail and weak and
his speech is slurred.
Meanwhile, Chechen rebels reportedly storm the Chechen capital of
Grozny and retake it from occupying Russian military forces.
18. *August 22nd, 1996: Pluto, the planet of explosive transformation
and nuclear energy is conjunct the Moon and
squares the Sun.
The fifth anniversary of the end of the hardline coup in August
1991 that supposedly brought an end to Soviet Communism.
A deadline has been set for this date by Russian army commanders
in Chechnya for civilians to flee Grozny before massive Russian
military force will reportedly be used to take back the Chechen
capital from rebels. Meanwhile, Yeltsin leaves Moscow amid rumors
that he is at a heart clinic where a decision is to be made about
surgery. A power struggle in the Kremlin is supposedly now underway
involving Alexander Lebed who has left for Chechnya to settle the
emerging crisis there before "madness" occurs.
As can be seen, the list above likely highlights how the Kremlin
is shaping four key current affairs according to astrology: the civil
war in the former-Yugoslavia, Russia's conflict with Chechnya, the
deteriorating physical and political health of Boris Yeltsin and the
rising influence of nationalist and communist hardliners in Russian
These four developments of recent history appear to have a common
aim. They are key ingredients for staging a right-wing coup in Moscow
and triggering world war three. The bungled military operation in
Chechnya ordered by Boris Yeltsin and increasing Western military
involvement against Russia's orthodox Serb brethren are sources of
rising nationalist frustrations in Moscow. This is seemingly reflected
by the growing political success of nationalist and hardline communist
parties and candidates in Russia's parliamentary and presidential
elections. Meanwhile, Boris Yeltsin's physical health is
deteriorating in step with the waning political strength of his
reformist, pro-Western government. All in all, the dozen or so
historical events listed above that are timed according to astrology
seem to be leading up to the death of Russian democracy (possibly
along with Boris Yeltsin), the emergence of a nationalist
authoritarian regime in Moscow and an outbreak of a war between East
and West, possibly by way of a Balkan trap.
***THE PRICE OF FALSE PEACE***
By J. Adams
Peace in today's world is well represented by the modern peace
symbol: a satanic symbol in which the Christian Cross is inverted and
broken. This signifies how peace in the modern age is false- an
In the context of the current political crisis in Russia, many
people believe that we should stand behind Boris Yeltsin at all
costs. This, they would say, is the price of peace. In the eyes of
most Americans, Yeltsin is a hero of Russian democracy who the U.S.
and its allies must stand by lest the communist 'hardliners' return
to power and renew the expensive Cold War. This point-of-view,
however, is symptomatic of a popular delusion afflicting the world
with regard to the true pursuits of Russia and its leaders. Until
the truth of this situation is accepted, humanity will remain
enslaved by lies.
Democracy in Russia has never existed. For those who have bought
the idea that Boris Yeltsin is the first democratically elected
leader of Russia in the country's 1000-year history, you better think
again. The Russian presidential election in June of 1991- a point at
which Soviet communism was still visibly intact- was fraudulent. If
you find this difficult to believe, I strongly suggest you examine
the political life of Vladimir Zhirinovsky- the upcoming neofascist
dictator of Russia.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky is an important but weak link in a strategic
deception Russia has been feeding the West since Gorbachev's 'New
Thinking' was introduced in the mid-1980's. He supposedly received
nearly seven million votes and came in third out of a field of seven
candidates in the Russian presidential election. Given the
neofascist platform of his misleadingly called 'Liberal Democratic
Party', Zhirinovsky's success in the election came as a complete
surprise. What came as an even greater surprise, however, were
results from investigations of Zhirinovsky's political registration
and the August coup in 1991. In December of 1991, investigators
revealed that, "...to all intents and purposes, the Liberal
Democratic Party, headed by Vladimir Zhirinovsky, does not exist".
Of course, if Zhirinovsky had no party and, in turn, no base of
support, how is it that he received millions of votes and came in a
surprising third in the race for the Russian presidency? Clearly the
election results were impossible. The implication should be obvious:
the supposedly democratic election for the first Russian president,
won by Boris Yeltsin, was a fraud.
Just two months after Yeltsin became president of Russia, he
apparently saved his country and democratic reforms from a coup
attempt by communist hardliners. Unfortunately, like the Russian
presidential election, the August coup of 1991 was also fraudulent- a
Potemkin masquerade intended for Western audiences.
During the first half of 1991, the Soviets carefully set the
stage for the bogus August putsch. Six months prior to the actual
coup, the KGB and Soviet army rehearsed their upcoming act under the
guise of a countercoup. During the summer of 1991, numerous rumors
and warnings were circulated in the West that a coup was imminent,
and in June hardliners reportedly failed at a constitutional-coup
attempt. As tension grew, Gorbachev strangely ignored all the
warning signs of an approaching putsch by hardliners and refused to
take precautionary measures. Then, on the weekend just before the
controversial signing of a new union treaty that would undermine the
Kremlin's central authority, Gorbachev made the seemingly reckless
decision to go on vacation to his dacha in the Crimea. Low and
behold, on Monday- the weekday Lenin stressed never to throw a coup-
hardline communist conspirators acted (literally).
From beginning to end, the August putsch was a nonsensical tale.
The KGB, Soviet military, and hardline conspirators behind the coup
attempt failed to follow almost every rule of Soviet-designed coups.
To begin with, reliable troops weren't prepositioned at key
facilities, and communication and transportation links with the
outside world were left unsevered. Even worse, the organizers of the
coup failed to have the main opposition leader, Boris Yeltsin,
detained or isolated- an unbelievable oversight. As Yeltsin took
refuge at the parliamentary 'White House' and began rallying
opposition, no one cut the phonelines. Furthermore, the media, which
the putchists had taken control of, was somehow allowed to broadcast
Yeltsin's appeals for resistance and international support.
Amazingly, throughout the whole affair Gorbachev's remaining allies
and the Russian KGB that backed Yeltsin were organizing opposition
from Kremlin offices literally down the hall from where the coup
plotters and the Soviet KGB were headquartered.
The reason that political events in Russia during the summer of
1991 were so utterly nonsensical is because they were just that:
nonsense. Both the Russian presidential election and the August coup
were staged as part of a large-scale political deception designed to
serve the power-maximizing interests of Russia's ruling elite.
Yeltsin's democratic victory that summer at the Russian White House
under the red-white-and-blue Russian flag was a lie that the West was
easily seduced by. However, a democratic transformation of Russia
remains about as likely as a communist revolution in America.
Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and all the supposed reformers in Moscow to this
day are 'ex-communists' and 'hardliners' who pursue but one thing:
Today the underlying goal of Gorbachev's New Thinking is about to
be realized. The stage is being set for a neofascist dictator to
take power in today's 'Weimar Russia'. That dictator, Vladimir
Zhirinovsky, is already revealing the true pursuit of Russia: to wage
an all-out third world war against Israel, America, and the Western
allies. Unfortunately, because the West has accepted the false peace
and friendship Russia and her Arab allies have offered over the past
several years, the East will militarily prevail. Not only have we
been duped into dropping our guard, our enemy has effectively
disappeared. Should 'democratic' Russia launch a surprise nuclear
blow in the midst of seeming internal chaos and a violent
international crisis, we will be greatly hesitant about retaliating
during the crucial minutes before being destroyed. And even if we do
decide to strike back, we will only target well-defended Mother
Russia; the rest of the communist world has been secured through
After the dust settles, Gorbachev will undoubtedly 'return' to
power in Moscow. Instead of realizing how he destroyed the world,
people will falsely believe that he has 'saved' the world from
militant extremists. Russian orthodoxy can be established in the
place of communism, and a global dictatorship of man, Gorbachev's
false 'kingdom of god', will be achieved.

***JUDGMENT FOR OUR TIME***
By J. Adams
Recently a violent political struggle took place in Moscow that
appears to have ended with a final defeat of conservative Russian
'hardliners' and the victory of liberal democracy. Likewise, the
forces of militarism and anti-Westernism appear to have been overcome
by the forces of pacifism and East/West friendship. The problem with
this situation, however, is that it is an illusion- an illusion that
is about to be utterly upset by reality.
Earlier this year I wrote two editorials that dealt with the
political situation in Russia, the war in Yugoslavia, and the ongoing
troubles in the Persian Gulf. Unfortunately, these editorials have
never been printed by a newspaper they were submitted to, i.e., they
have been effectively censored.
The general idea of my editorials was reflected by their titles:
"The Price of False Peace" and "A Time For War". In a nutshell, I
spelled out why I believe the modern world has accepted a total lie.
Since Mikhail Gorbachev came to power in the Soviet Union in 1985 and
released a book entitled 'A Time For Peace', everything has taken
place to lead us to believe in "peace for our time". Yet, world
peace today is likely no different than "peace for our time" as
proclaimed by Neville Chamberlain in 1938 after signing the Munich
Accord with Hitler. I believe that now, like then, the West has
foolishly accepted a false peace that serves the strategic interests
of those pursuing our destruction.
The recent political battle in Moscow is an example of Russia's
deceptive strategy. We have just witnessed a violent political
showdown between Russia's liberal reformers and hardline
conservatives in which Boris Yeltsin, the supposed champion of
democracy, has effectively thrown a coup. On September 21st, Yeltsin
revoked the Soviet-era constitution and disbanded parliament. In
reaction to this, hardline lawmakers, led by vice-president (?!)
Alexander Rutskoi, barricaded themselves in the Russian parliament
building, the so-called "White House", and prepared for armed
resistance. Yeltsin gave the lawmakers until October 4th to clear-
out or face "serious consequences". Then, on the eve of one of the
most dangerous political confrontations in Russian history, Yeltsin
haphazardly took-off to his summer house for the day. Right-wing and
pro-communist protesters seized the opportunity. They overtook
surprisingly weak police lines around the parliament and, under
orders from hardline leaders, began a violent uprising in Moscow.
Because no major forceful response was prepared or at least promptly
ordered by government and police authorities, the city quickly
dissolved into bloodshed and mayhem.
When Yeltsin returned to Moscow, a state of emergency was
declared and the Russian military was called upon to restore order by
force. The protesters were pushed back to the White House where they
would make their last stand. The next day, October 4th, Yeltsin
ordered the army to storm the parliament; the hardliners were forced
to surrender. As they were taken away under armed guard, the White
House, where Russian freedom and democracy was supposedly victorious
against the August coup of 1991, symbolically burned in the
background. Now, with Yeltsin's political opponents in jail and
parliament burned, democracy in Moscow is seemingly defeated.
Through what was tantamount to a coup, Yeltsin has effectively become
sole ruler of Russia.
The key point here is that recent events in Russia have been
intentionally orchestrated as an historical parallel to events in
Weimar Germany some sixty years ago. The last leader to revoke a
constitution, disband parliament, burn the "Reichstag", and take
control of a fledgling democracy was Adolph Hitler. The reason such
an analogous situation has been engineered is because the "true"
hardliners, which includes Boris Yeltsin, Mikhail Gorbachev, and the
rest of communism's rulers-of-old, are creating the excuse to stage a
violent reversal in power from liberal reform to right-wing
extremism. More specifically, the stage has been set for a bogus
coup in which a neofascist dictator, namely Vladimir Zhirinovsky, is
brought to power.
A power reversal is being planned in Moscow in order to open the
way for a surprise third world war. Since the West backed Yeltsin's
drive to undo democracy, crush nationalist opponents, and conquer
Russia's "soul", Russian hardliners now have a pretense for launching
an all-out war against the "Zionist" powers of Israel, America, and
the Western allies. War may be initially provoked in and around the
Middle East- the Balkans (Yugoslavia), the Persian Gulf (Iraq), the
Causasus, etc.- but this is only to set the stage for an onslaught
against the Zionist homeland: Israel. Since Israel will undoubtedly
resort to nuclear force against her Russian-backed Arab foes and
possibly Russia as well, Moscow will have the excuse it needs for
"massive retaliation", i.e., an all-out nuclear attack against
America and its military counterparts. Our leaders will subsequently
be hardput to retaliate since Russia was so recently a democratic
With all said and done, through long-run strategic planning,
large-scale deception, and massive military aggression, the East will
have conquered the world. First off, military dominance will have
been achieved because the West was lulled into a false sense of
security, duped into dropping its guard, and left without a visible
enemy so that a successful surprise attack could be launched.
Secondly, popular dominance will have been achieved because world war
three was staged such that it appeared to be the West's fault. The
resultant hatred for the West will feed into popular support for the
Should the future confirm my beliefs and expectations, then it's
important people realize why. As I see it, newspapers refuse to
print my editorials because the truth is literally blasphemy in a
world dominated by lies. Over the past 1000 years the rise of
Western civilization has coincided with the rise of an opposing
worldview to Christianity. This opposing worldview, what I've dubbed
the secular paradigm, is the historical antithesis of Christianity.
According to it, ours is a godless universe that started with a "Big
Bang" and is flowing towards ever greater disorder and
meaninglessness. This contradicts the idea that, since the moment of
Creation, God has carried out purposeful work to create ever greater
organization and meaning. According to the secular paradigm, life
results from a process of elimination that involves "random mutation"
and "natural selection". Contrariwise, Christians believe that life
comes from purposeful, orderly creation and divine selection. With
regard to society, the secular worldview holds that, with the
guidance of some imaginal "invisible hand", selfishness and
competition give rise to "general equilibrium". This contradicts the
Christian view that unselfish cooperation and the grace of God bring
forth social harmony. All in all, the now dominant secular worldview
is the antithesis of Christianity.
The problem, however, is that if Christ's worldview was realistic
and true, then the opposing secular worldview is false- it is a
popular delusion. As reflected by the cycles of history, the reality
is that man as a species suffers from general mental and emotional
"disequilibrium" and poses a danger to himself and his environment.
Because of people's greed, hatred, arrogance, and fear, the
contemporary world is caught up in a bipolar disorder that is leading
us toward self-destruction. As the seventh seal opens and "The
Crash" occurs, the popular expectations of this secular age will be
totally upset while the opposing expectations embodied in biblical
prophecy are fulfilled. This will reveal the truthfulness of
religion and falsify the modern secular delusion. If mankind finds
the courage to accept the truth and learns to love, then individual
and social harmony, real peace, and the true "Kingdom of God" will be
achieved. If not, then this world will meet a tragic End.

NOTE: The two Moscow News articles cited above are disinformation
intended to make sense of the nonsense that occurred during the
October uprising by attributing the staged crisis to Boris
Yeltsin and Russia's supposed liberal reformers. In reality, the
whole affair was orchestrated to set the stage for the December
parliamentary elections in which right-wing extremists and pro-
communists, who were seemingly victimized by the October events,
achieved surprising success. Most important was the victory of
Vladimir Zhirinovsky's "Liberal Democratic Party" (?!) in the
election of the new Russian parliament. Zhirinovsky was given
political power in December of 1993 to open the way for a future
military coup (see "The Zhirinovsky Connection") which, in turn,
will open the way for a third world war against the West- a point
reiterated time and time again in my editorials.
