Putin tries again to grab eastern Ukraine; Ra Mu

Vladimir Putin signed an executive order on Saturday officially recognizing identification documents issued by the two breakaway “republics” in eastern Ukraine.

In addition to passports, the Russian Federation will recognize education documents, certificates recording births, deaths, marriages, and divorces and automobile registrations.  Now, using documents issued by the self-declared “People’s Republics” of Donetsk and Luhansk, individuals will be able to enter Russia.  https://themoscowtimes.com/news/putin-signs-executive-order-recognizing-passports-issued-by-ukraines-rebels-57198

so much for law in Russia.

2-18-17     ERBIL, Kurdistan Region –The anticipated fresh offensive to liberate the western part of Mosul from the ISIS militants will be “tough” and may take at least 100 days, Maj. Gen. Rupert Jones, deputy commander for strategy and support of the US-led international coalition against the extremist group said.
 “In terms of how long it will take–well look, you know east Mosul took 100 days, west Mosul could be every minute tough.  So you know, you can work it out from there,” Maj. Gen Jones told the BBC, aired on Saturday.    http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/180220172

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region–Operations conducted by the global coalition against ISIS militants both in Iraq and Syria are denying the extremist group millions of dollars each month, resulting in financial difficulties, the spokesperson for the coalition told Rudaw TV on Wednesday, stressing the importance of targeting places where the militants store their “bulk cash.”
“Not only do we stop them from making money from oil, but we also destroy their cash, bulk cash wherever they store it, wherever we can find it,” Col John Dorrian said.  “We have done this many, many times and will continue to do it.  What it does, it takes the enemy’s ability to finance its operations away.  These are pay cuts for their fighters; they are not able to pay death benefits to their suicide bombers.”    http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/250120174

As you have listened unto the music and the singing and the voices (prior to the dictation), know that choirs of beings–devotees of ancient Lemuria, ascended masters and their chelas who have gathered in the retreat of Mount Shasta–were anchoring in that sound by the action of the light and sound ray into this octave choruses of the ancient music of the Motherland that you might be quickened in the intonation of the aum, into the divine memory of your origin and your life on Mu and how you served the Ancient of Days and how you served the Holy Kumaras and Lady Master Venus.

Now then as I have given to you my name will you not use it as a chant of love whereby the light of Mu and of Shasta and of the momentum of devotees of the ages can be anchored in a moment in your heart for service?  And my own causal body I place upon the altar of the Great White Brotherhood that it might be used as a magnet to draw the souls who serve together in the mandala of the Motherland once again to that point of intimate communion in the Holy Spirit so that that light can stream forth in all of its intensity, in all of its love to capture souls–young souls on Terra, older souls, embodied angels, elemental life–to capture them all in the central Flame of the Mother which we enshrine.  [Audience joins master in chanting “Ra Mu” three times.]              -Ra Mu:  7-5-1975 at Lake Siskiyou near Mt.

EU and NATO

10-6-16     “The biggest concern is that EU ambitions would lead to a split in NATO,” argues Geoffrey van Orden MEP, a retired Brigadier and respected military analyst. “EU defense policy is all about creating a federal Europe.  It has little to do with providing more military capability.”

The British conservative MEP suggests the idea of an EU military arm strengthening NATO is folly:  “There are huge flaws in this approach.  For a start, the two largest military powers in Europe, the UK and Turkey, are both NATO members but they won’t be in the EU,” but goes on to hint that an autonomous German-led military organization wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

I don’t worry about the Germans as such – in fact I’d welcome greater defense commitment from them – it’s the idea of EU military ambition, creating distraction and schism in NATO, that is the real concern,” he adds.  https://www.rt.com/op-edge/361832-eu-army-nato-germany/
